It takes a lot of burden off me,” Harden said. “He’s so offensively gifted and talented being able to shoot the basketball, being able to get to the rim, being able to make plays for others.

James Ennis had five points in that stretch and P.J. Tucker capped it with a 3-pointer.Ball was injured just before Houston’s run began. He remained on the court for a couple of minutes talking with trainer’s before he was helped to his feet where he hopped on his right foot for a few steps before being carried off the court and to the locker room by Stephenson and Michael Beasley.Walton was ejected a couple of minutes after that when he got two technical fouls after yelling at officials during a timeout.

Vine: 5-Star Running Back Soso Jamabo Says He Has Two Very Interesting Finalists In His Recruitment

He named two schools, just not the ones people would expect:That’s right, Jamabo claims he’s down to the University of Phoenix and ITT Tech. Not sure if either school can compete with the tradition, weather or gameday atmosphere of UCLA or Texas, but neither program has lost in years and might lead the country in television advertisements. Jamabo even took things a step further on Twitter this afternoon, posting this hilarious edited photo playing up the whole mock situation:I just wanna thank God.. pic.twitter.com/cdnMiGzNQ4— SOMI JaMITCHELL (@Soso_Jamabo1) January 26, 2015If Jamabo’s budding football career doesn’t work out, comedy could be a decent backup plan.last_img read more

Will defeat Maken this time with bigger margin: Lekhi

first_imgThis time, Meenakshi Lekhi, the BJP candidate from New Delhi, is all set to sweep the Lok Sabha polls, at least according to what she said in an exclusive interview with Anup Verma & Abhinay Lakshman of the Millennium Post. Lekhi said some might think she is up against heavyweight candidates, but the only one formidable in New Delhi is none other than her. Excerpts: How has your campaign been so far? What are the issues you are focusing on? Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesIt’s just absolutely fantastic. You can see the affection of people, enthusiasm of our party workers and the response from the general public. The whole thing is worth a watch. Look, issues change with changing times. But, what we are talking about here is the five years of work that the Modi government has accomplished. In addition to this, I am addressing the work that I have achieved in the last five years in my constituency, including how I have dealt with a variety of issues inside and outside of parliament. These are the things we are talking about. Development is definitely the agenda we are setting here, because an urban constituency comprises of an aware electorate. But nationalism and national politics remain as important and we are also talking about policies that our government has framed in this regard. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarWhat are some local issues your campaign will zero in on? The worst issue we are dealing with happens to be the water crisis. And I believe if New Delhi has water crisis, every other constituency will also have water crisis. I cannot deal with this because it is a subject matter that comes under the Delhi government’s jurisdiction. Earlier, as a representative of this area I had got Rs 900 crore sanctioned from the Central budget for the Delhi government to put to use. But the execution and work strategy of how this money is used remains under the purview of Delhi government. Since they never involved me, I don’t know what strategy or what plan do they have for dealing with the water crisis here. They got this budgetary allocation on my demand from the Centre. Further on, how do you plan to work with NDMC and the Delhi government, given that you share jurisdiction with them? Look, conflicts in this regard come and go on a daily basis. But, irrespective of conflicting issues, a lot can be done if intentions are well placed. My point is that I don’t bring politics into developmental aspects or helping people. I don’t believe in that and repeatedly I have made this clear to the Delhi government. I have always maintained that we should work together on dealing with the issues at hand. We will play politics when it comes to elections, but I have not received a positive response from the other side on working towards resolving these issues together. My faith in not politicising developmental issues and bringing basic amenities like water to the people of Delhi does not seem to be reciprocated. What has your crowning achievement been as an MP in the last five years? You see, there have been so many national policies that our government has introduced, launched, and nurtured. But a lot of them haven’t been applied in Delhi. As a legislator, my role has been to try to get these policies applied in New Delhi 100 percent. I have tried my level best to make sure that people of Delhi can reap the benefits of schemes that have been passed by our government. I have tried to bring these benefits to the people and help them, whether it is Mudra, Jandhan, or Ujjwala. As an MP, I’ve spent Rs 32 crore to develop my constituency, whereas the MPLAD fund only allows for Rs 25 crore. I utilised every bit of resource, including the leftover of Rs 7 crore of MPLAD fund from my predecessor. New Delhi is one of the top smart cities in India. What more you are planning for this smart city? There are many things which are possible. We have achieved a target of about 40 per cent smartness, so to speak. I wish I could achieve 100 percent and we’ve done quite a bit towards that end. The whole 100 percent is very much doable if all of the authorities invested in the issue work together and cooperate. But what I want to work on is garbage management and waste disposal. There are various possible ways that I’m looking at for garbage disposable solutions close to the area, in the vicinity of the constituency. This is because it is imperative that we find a solution that considerably reduces the number of garbage trucks we send to the landfills. Other than this, I intervened and got around 10 Sewage Treatment Plants put up. What’s the first thing you promise to do, if you are re-elected? There are still one or two places in New Delhi where open defecation is still a problem. So, I have decided that I’m going to build toilets there immediately. There is a place called Timbre Market in Moti Nagar, where a park is used as a place for open defecation and that particular cluster needs a bit of redoing. In fact, I went to Bhanwar Singh Camp on Monday and there was a place, a part of the ridge that was used for open defecation. I had got that area enclosed and converted into a park and built toilets in the area. Some would say you are going up against formidable opponents in New Delhi. How do you feel about that, given that things are different from what they were in 2014? Yes, I agree that things are different this time around. So, as compared to 2014, I believe our margins will increase. Mr Maken, whom I defeated by a margin of more than two and a half lakh votes, will lose this year by a larger margin. If somebody is formidable in this seat, it happens to be Meenakshi Lekhi and no one else. What are some other challenges you might face in the run-up to the polls? There is no challenge whatsoever that I feel I must be aware of. There is resounding confidence that I have nothing to worry about in these polls. The only thing that worries me is that the campaign is exhausting and as a result of speaking continuously, my throat has taken a toll. So, other than that there is nothing else that worries me.last_img read more

Ohio State cross country prepares for Great Lakes Regional Championships

After disappointing finishes at the Big Ten Championships on Oct. 30, the Ohio State men’s and women’s cross country teams are working to improve on running in tighter packs as championship season presses on. The Buckeyes will run at the Great Lakes Regional Championships on Nov. 12 in Toledo, Ohio, and coaches from both the men’s and women’s teams attribute their teams’ poor performances at the Big Ten Championships to a big gap between their first and fifth runners. The coaches said that will need to improve at the regional meet in order for OSU to score better. “I’d like to see us get five to six guys on a 20-second spread,” said Robert Gary, OSU men’s head coach. OSU women’s assistant coach Chris Neal expressed similar thoughts for the women. “We just need to clean up the tail end of our pack more than anything,” he said. At the Big Ten Championships, both teams had spreads bigger than they would have liked. The men had a 28-second spread from their No. 1 to No. 5 runner, and the women had a 1:20 gap. The large spreads led to OSU finishing fifth in the men’s race and ninth in the women’s. Women’s runner, junior Tori Brink, said having a small spread at the Great Lakes Regional Championships will be key to the Buckeyes running well. Brink finished first for OSU at the Big Ten Championships, in 23rd place, covering the 6K-course in 20:55. “That’d be completely important at the regional meet,” she said. “Having our fourth and fifth runners being closer to our one, two and three would bring our team’s points down lower and allow us to get a higher place.” Taylor Williams, a redshirt senior on the men’s team, said he would like to see his team have a smaller spread, but not too much needs to improve for OSU to finish high at regionals. “I don’t think we change much and I think the team is still motivated,” he said. At the Great Lakes Regional Championships, OSU will be running against a number of teams they have competed against this season. Big Ten champion, the No. 1-ranked Wisconsin Badgers, and No. 7 Indiana highlight the men’s field, with No. 12 Michigan State leading the women’s field after winning its second-straight Big Ten championship. The teams competing will be vying for a top-two finish, which results in an automatic bid to the NCAA National Championships. At-large bids to nationals can be given to teams that do not finish in the top-two but have performed well all season. read more

Microgrid at MCAS Yuma to Provide Backup Power for Base Community

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The local utility next month will begin installing a microgrid at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma in southwestern Arizona that will serve as a backup power supply for the installation as well as the surrounding community in the event the commercial grid goes down.“On a hot summer day, if customers are using a lot of electricity in Yuma and we need more power, we can turn on the generator to serve customers in Yuma. So it improves reliability for the area,” Jenna Shaver, a spokeswoman for Arizona Public Service (APS), told the Yuma Sun. Microgrids are small, self-contained electrical grids which can run in conjunction with or independently of the main power grid.The microgrid, which will be installed next to the base’s existing power station, will use diesel fuel to generate up to 25 megawatts of electricity, which is expected to be enough to meet its future energy needs. Diesel was selected because of its low impact on the environment, and because it allows the microgrid to be fired much more quickly than other energy sources, according to the story.“It can start up in seconds, that’s one of the reasons we chose that,” Shaver said. “Whereas natural gas might take minutes, this takes seconds to start up and provide power.”She said the project will make the installation the first military base in the country to have 100 percent backup power.“This is a historic moment for the Marine Corps, Department of the Navy and Department of Defense. We are moving towards an energy secure future, and we are proud that MCAS Yuma has made such a significant step towards that goal,” Col. Ricardo Martinez, the installation’s commanding officer, said in a statement.The microgrid is expected to be completed by June. APS will operate and maintain the system for the base during a 30-year lease, and solar panels may be added in the future. Shaver would not reveal the project’s cost.last_img read more

It said that they flew around 230 km at a maximum altitude of 30 km.Military experts say that the projectiles bear outward similarities to the US’ Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS), a surface-to-surface missile system.Friday’s firing came six days after North Korea flew two projectiles believed to be short-range ballistic missiles, though the North said later it tested a “new weapon”. It also was the sixth such launch since late July.North Korea has carried out weapons tests in recent weeks in apparent protest of the ongoing joint military exercise by South Korea and the US, which it sees as a rehearsal for invasion.Earlier this week, the North warned that inter-Korean dialogue won’t resume unless the South offers a “plausible excuse” for its combined military exercise with the US.last_img read more

A father attempts DIY drone buddy to watch his kid

first_img Analyzing energy potential (Phys.org)—”Last winter, I fantasized about sitting at my computer while a camera-equipped drone followed him overhead.” That is the revelation of a
 father who provides a detailed account of building an Arduino-based gyrocopter that could follow his son, in grade school, who he normally walks 400 meters down a hill to the bus stop each morning. He chose a quadcopter design for its maneuverability and ability to hover. He did not buy a kit but instead got his parts separate. His project involved a central frame to hold the electronics, aluminum to support motors and propellers, and legs to cushion landings, a main control board and sensors, batteries, power distribution board, power controllers for the motors, radio receiver for standard remote-control flying, and an RF modem for computerized control. Explore further Credit: Paul Wallich, via IEEE Spectrum Paul Wallich, an IEEE Spectrum contributing editor shared many details behind his DIY device with the magazine. He chose an ArduPilot Mega for the main control board. ArduPilot Mega is a fully programmable autopilot that requires a GPS module and sensors to create a functioning Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. He said the whole board is powered by a 5-volt feed from one of the motor controllers. He installed Mission Planner on a Windows desktop to initialize the ArduPilot Mega’s firmware and calibrate all its sensors and controls. He decided against using RFID systems, opting instead for a GPS beacon. “Reading an RFID tag from meters rather than centimeters takes more amplification and a fancier antenna than I was willing to have my quadcopter carry.” How successful was he? Getting the thing up in the air was trivial. But he still had to rate his success based on how it worked. He said it “mostly” worked. Windy conditions were a problem, making the copter skittish. GPS guidance was good to ten meters at best. “Because my particular front yard is only about 15 meters across, with a long, tree-edged driveway leading to the street, I either have to follow automatically above the treetops—where I can’t really see what’s going on—or else supplement the autopilot with old-fashioned line-of-sight remote control.” 
Wallich said he plans more sonar units for “collision avoidance,” and maybe an optical flow sensor for better position control.He discovered another difficulty, rechargeable battery life. “Just hovering in the air requires two to three amperes; moving around or fighting a breeze expends twice that or more.” He said the typical 2200-milliampere-hour lithium-ion battery gave him just enough time to fly to the bus stop, wait a few minutes for the bus and fly back.
