As with men, the great unknown is the weather. For the men, only one of three races could be held after fresh snow and wind made further races in Lake Louise impossible. Even before the women’s races, it was snowing again in the Canadian Rockies. The training planned for Wednesday was therefore also canceled. However, an improvement in the weather is forecast for the weekend on which, in addition to the race on Friday, another downhill run on Saturday (8.30 p.m.) and a Super-G on Sunday (6.30 p.m.) are on the program.

In the Austrian camp, the motivation to imitate the men who celebrated a double victory in the only downhill run on Saturday by Matthias Mayer and Vincent Kriechmayr is great. Tippler in particular is hoping for a further step forward in the Olympic season, the conditions are right. “I have my seven things together, the material fits, I trained really well,” emphasized the Styrian who, like Siebenhofer, once finished second on the World Cup podium in the preseason.

Downhill training for the ladies in Lake Louise

When visibility was poor and the slope conditions were difficult, the ski women completed their first downhill training in Lake Louise. The Austrians held back elegantly, Christina Ager was the best in eighth place.

Routine keeps nerves in check

In the past, Tippler’s nervous system in particular often made life difficult by literally starting to flutter at the wrong time. After ten seasons in the World Cup, however, the speed specialist feels ready for stressful situations. “I’ve certainly thrown away my nerves once before, then the tears flow too. I am an emotional person, but I have learned to deal with it better and to find my center more quickly on the track. I try to trust my skiing and that is very good, ”said Tippler.

She can now cope better with failed days of skiing such as the training sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. “I certainly already have the necessary experience. The trainers also say you can do it with less training, ”said the Styrian. Because she can rely on the build-up work she has done with lots of good training sessions and her fitness, said Tippler, and also referred to the extremely good atmosphere in the Austrian team.

Schmidhofer celebrates comeback

Nicole Schmidhofer can experience this again after her serious knee injury. The 2017 Super-G world champion is somewhat surprisingly returning to racing in Lake Louise. “I’ll try it until the end,” Schmidhofer had recently announced. In the only test run on Tuesday, she was more than five seconds behind. On Wednesday and Thursday, bad weather and warm weather caused training to be canceled. Improvement is in sight at the weekend.

She is very happy to be back in the World Cup circus, although her perspective has changed due to the story of suffering. “That was an intense year, it shaped me a lot, but it will help me a lot. The joke runs, that’s very important, but you see certain things differently. ”As a reminder of the formative time, Schmidhofer carries a washer removed from her injured knee as a lucky charm.

Favorites are called differently

It was Schmidhofer who two years ago in Lake Louise provided the last downhill win for the ÖSV women to date. Nina Ortlieb is also missing the injured runner who clinched the last Austrian speed victory in the La Thuile Super-G at the end of February 2020. In their absence, Tippler, Siebenhofer and Co. are probably just outsiders in the fight for victory in both planned downhill runs and in the Super-G on Sunday.

Downhill ball winner Sofia Goggia and world champion Corinne Suter are the favorites. Ester Ledecka will also have to be taken into account again. While Super-G world champion Lara Gut-Behrami is struggling with a stubborn cold, overall World Cup title holder Petra Vlhova is not at the start in Canada. On the other hand, Mikaela Shiffrin, who leads the Slovakian in the overall standings, competes.

Emergence of a neopelagic community through the establishment of coastal species on the high seas. Nature Communications, 2021; 12 (1) DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-27188-6

“The issues of plastic go beyond just ingestion and entanglement,” said Linsey Haram, lead author of the article and former postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). “It’s creating opportunities for coastal species’ biogeography to greatly expand beyond what we previously thought was possible.”

Gyres of ocean plastic form when surface currents drive plastic pollution from the coasts into regions where rotating currents trap the floating objects, which accumulate over time. The world has at least five plastic-infested gyres, or “garbage patches.” The North Pacific Subtropical Gyre, between California and Hawai’i, holds the most floating plastic, with an estimated 79,000 metric tons of plastic floating in a region over 610,000 square miles. While “garbage patch” is a misnomer — much of the pollution consists of microplastics, too small for the naked eye to see — floating debris like nets, buoys and bottles also get swept into the gyres, carrying organisms from their coastal homes with them.

A New Open Ocean

The authors call these communities neopelagic. “Neo” means new, and “pelagic” refers to the open ocean, as opposed to the coast. Scientists first began suspecting coastal species could use plastic to survive in the open ocean for long periods after the 2011 Japanese tsunami, when they discovered that nearly 300 species had rafted all the way across the Pacific on tsunami debris over the course of several years. But until now, confirmed sightings of coastal species on plastic directly in the open ocean were rare.

For this discovery, Haram teamed up with Ocean Voyages Institute, a nonprofit that collects plastic pollution on sailing expeditions, and a pair of oceanographers from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. The oceanographers, Jan Hafner and Nikolai Maximenko, created models that could predict where plastic was most likely to pile up in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. They shared that information with Ocean Voyages Institute.

One advantage of the institute, Haram — now a fellow at the American Association for the Advancement of Science — pointed out, is the low carbon footprint of its vessels. “It can take a lot of energy to get out to the middle of the ocean with a gas-powered boat,” she said. “So they use large-cargo sailing vessels to go around and remove plastics from the open ocean.”

During the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ocean Voyages Institute founder Mary Crowley and her team managed to collect a record-breaking 103 tons of plastics and other debris from the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. She shipped some of those samples to SERC’s Marine Invasions Lab. There, Haram analyzed the species that had colonized them. She found many coastal species — including anemones, hydroids and shrimp-like amphipods — not only surviving, but thriving, on marine plastic.

A Sea of Questions

For marine scientists, the very existence of this “new open ocean” community is a paradigm shift.

“The open ocean has not been habitable for coastal organisms until now,” said SERC senior scientist Greg Ruiz, who heads the Marine Invasions Lab where Haram worked. “Partly because of habitat limitation — there wasn’t plastic there in the past — and partly, we thought, because it was a food desert.”

The new discovery shows that both ideas do not always hold true. Plastic is providing the habitat. And somehow, coastal rafters are finding food. Ruiz said scientists are still speculating exactly how — whether they drift into existing hot spots of productivity in the gyre, or because the plastic itself acts like a reef attracting more food sources.

Now, scientists have another shift to wrestle with: How these coastal rafters could shake up the environment. The open ocean has plenty of its own native species, which also colonize floating debris. The arrival of new coastal neighbors could disrupt ocean ecosystems that have remained undisturbed for millennia.

“Coastal species are directly competing with these oceanic rafters,” Haram said. “They’re competing for space. They’re competing for resources. And those interactions are very poorly understood.”

And then there is the invasive-species threat. Scientists have already seen that begin to play out with Japanese tsunami debris, which carried organisms from Japan to North America. Vast colonies of coastal species floating in the open ocean for years at a time could act as a new reservoir, giving coastal rafters more opportunities to invade new coastlines.

“Those other coastlines are not just urban centers….That opportunity extends to more remote areas, protected areas, Hawaiian Islands, national parks, marine protected areas,” Ruiz said.

The authors still do not know how common these “neopelagic” communities are, whether they can sustain themselves or if they even exist outside the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. But the world’s dependence on plastic continues to climb. Scientists estimate cumulative global plastic waste could reach over 25 billion metric tons by 2050. With fiercer and more frequent storms on the horizon thanks to climate change, the authors expect even more of that plastic will get pushed out to sea. Colonies of coastal rafters on the high seas will likely only grow. This long-overlooked side effect of plastic pollution, the authors said, could soon transform life on land and in the sea.

Arizona remains undefeated, Brady enchants, ageless, the kickers combine all the colors, Atlanta wins in London. Sunday of electrifying football, the Monday Night that will complete the fifth day of the NFL is Baltimore-Indianapolis.

Atlanta-New York Jets 27-20

It is played in London, for the first time in England in two years, at the Tottenham stadium. Ryan puts on a show: he throws for 342 yards and two tries, riding Pitts, the superb freshman, and the electric Patterson, who also lends a hand from improvised running back. The Falcons dominate the first half, closed ahead 20-3. The fumbles of Hurst and Davis still keep the Jets (1-4) in the game. And with Carter’s try they know how to get back under 17-20. But the Falcons (2-3) “hold”: Ryan continues to be surgical, Davis’ touchdown on a run closes the game. For the veteran quarterback, the satisfaction of overtaking Eli Manning for flying yards, eighth every epoch: 57,068 yards when overtaking.

Cincinnati-Green Bay 22-25 d.t.s.

The Sunday race. Because Rodgers and Burrow make havoc, Adams gets everything, especially because they miss 5 kicks in a row in the final. Crosby, of the Packers, risks dismissal with errors of 36, 40 (overtime) and 51 yards (regulation expiration), McPherson hits the post from 57 yards in the sprint in regulation and misses the posts from 49 yards to win in overtime . Crosby redeems himself by hitting the field goal of victory from 49 yards after a 3rd & 16th completed by the Packers (4-1) on the Rodgers-Cobb axis. Burrow in hospital after the race: tests for a blow to the throat. Cincy 3-2, now.

Tampa Bay-Miami 45-17

The attack of the reigning champions is scary: Brady launches for 411 yards and 5 tries. Brown rages well beyond the 900th hold in just 143 games, a record. The Florida derby turns out to be a monologue of the Bucs (4-1), with the Dolphins (1-4) unable to take advantage of the limits of the opposing secondary decimated. Injuries are the unknown for Tampa: David went out with a sprained ankle, Brady accused a problem in his right thumb.

Arizona-San Francisco 17-10

The Cardinals (5-0) remain unbeaten. This time it is their defense that makes the difference, with the rival quarterback, Lance, the first to start for the knockout of Garoppolo, messing in every possible or imaginable way, immature despite the obvious talent. The defense kept the 49ers (2-3) still in the game, but the Murray-Hopkins tandem combined for the decisive try.

Los Angeles Chargers-Cleveland 47-42

Game from over 1,000 attack yards, a playground. The extraordinary attack on Herbert’s passes has the better of the extraordinary one on the run by Chubb and Hunt. Curiosity: Ekeler’s third goal, from the Chargers (4-1), comes with the defense of the Browns (3-2) that drags him into the end zone to have the opportunity to replicate in exremis. But then the miracle fails in Mayfield.

The other matches

In the Sunday Night Buffalo success in Kansas City 38-20: Allen beats Mahomes, also intercepted by Hyde for 6 points. Minnesota bends the usual Detroit 19-17 paperinesca with football at the end of 54 yads by Joseph, New England comeback Houston 25-22 in Texas, New Orleans passes to Washington 33-22, the game of the game is the passage of the Ave Maria of Winston received in the end zone by Callaway. Carolina loses with Philadelphia 18-21, Darnold is intercepted three times, Tennessee overwhelms the unfortunate Jacksonville 37-19 with the Henry truck, in the 20th consecutive defeat. Pittsburgh fold Denver 27-19: Pierre intercepts Bridgewater in the end zone in the sprint, Chicago rules Las Vegas 20-9 dominating in defense, with the former Mack leading the charge. Dallas wipes out 44-20 the New York Giants who lose Jones, Barkley and Golladay to injury. Amazing Elliott and Prescott.

Arizona remains undefeated, Brady enchants, ageless, the kickers combine all the colors, Atlanta wins in London. Sunday of electrifying football, the Monday Night that will complete the fifth day of the NFL is Baltimore-Indianapolis.

Atlanta-New York Jets 27-20

It is played in London, for the first time in England in two years, at the Tottenham stadium. Ryan puts on a show: he throws for 342 yards and two tries, riding Pitts, the superb freshman, and the electric Patterson, who also lends a hand from improvised running back. The Falcons dominate the first half, closed ahead 20-3. The fumbles of Hurst and Davis still keep the Jets (1-4) in the game. And with Carter’s try they know how to get back under 17-20. But the Falcons (2-3) “hold”: Ryan continues to be surgical, Davis’ touchdown on a run closes the game. For the veteran quarterback, the satisfaction of overtaking Eli Manning for flying yards, eighth every epoch: 57,068 yards when overtaking.

Cincinnati-Green Bay 22-25 d.t.s.

The Sunday race. Because Rodgers and Burrow make havoc, Adams gets everything, especially because they miss 5 kicks in a row in the final. Crosby, of the Packers, risks dismissal with errors of 36, 40 (overtime) and 51 yards (regulation expiration), McPherson hits the post from 57 yards in the sprint in regulation and misses the posts from 49 yards to win in overtime . Crosby redeems himself by hitting the field goal of victory from 49 yards after a 3rd & 16th completed by the Packers (4-1) on the Rodgers-Cobb axis. Burrow in hospital after the race: tests for a blow to the throat. Cincy 3-2, now.

Tampa Bay-Miami 45-17

The attack of the reigning champions is scary: Brady launches for 411 yards and 5 tries. Brown rages well beyond the 900th hold in just 143 games, a record. The Florida derby turns out to be a monologue of the Bucs (4-1), with the Dolphins (1-4) unable to take advantage of the limits of the opposing secondary decimated. Injuries are the unknown for Tampa: David went out with a sprained ankle, Brady accused a problem in his right thumb.

Arizona-San Francisco 17-10

The Cardinals (5-0) remain unbeaten. This time it is their defense that makes the difference, with the rival quarterback, Lance, the first to start for the knockout of Garoppolo, messing in every possible or imaginable way, immature despite the obvious talent. The defense kept the 49ers (2-3) still in the game, but the Murray-Hopkins tandem combined for the decisive try.

Los Angeles Chargers-Cleveland 47-42

Game from over 1,000 attack yards, a playground. The extraordinary attack on Herbert’s passes has the better of the extraordinary one on the run by Chubb and Hunt. Curiosity: Ekeler’s third goal, from the Chargers (4-1), comes with the defense of the Browns (3-2) that drags him into the end zone to have the opportunity to replicate in exremis. But then the miracle fails in Mayfield.

The other matches

In the Sunday Night Buffalo success in Kansas City 38-20: Allen beats Mahomes, also intercepted by Hyde for 6 points. Minnesota bends the usual Detroit 19-17 paperinesca with football at the end of 54 yads by Joseph, New England comeback Houston 25-22 in Texas, New Orleans passes to Washington 33-22, the game of the game is the passage of the Ave Maria of Winston received in the end zone by Callaway. Carolina loses with Philadelphia 18-21, Darnold is intercepted three times, Tennessee overwhelms the unfortunate Jacksonville 37-19 with the Henry truck, in the 20th consecutive defeat. Pittsburgh fold Denver 27-19: Pierre intercepts Bridgewater in the end zone in the sprint, Chicago rules Las Vegas 20-9 dominating in defense, with the former Mack leading the charge. Dallas wipes out 44-20 the New York Giants who lose Jones, Barkley and Golladay to injury. Amazing Elliott and Prescott.

The surgeon: “Shatter the tibia and fibula of the right leg, screws and pins in the ankle and foot”. Obama: “Never give it up as finished”

Open fractures in the tibia and fibula of the right leg, a plate in the tibia, screw and pins in the ankle. The consequences of the accident in which Tiger Woods was involved yesterday are very serious. According to the Los Angeles authorities, he would not be life threatening but “he was very lucky to survive” the accident with his SUV on a road on the outskirts of the city, said the sheriff who spoke at the crash site.

The accident

Woods was on his way to a TV office for an appointment, his SUV crashed into a median, overturned and ended up on its side near a steep road. It was pulled out of the windshield. The Woods foundation said Tiger is conscious and responsive after surgery. Dr. Anish Mahajan, chief physician at Harbor-Ucla Medical Center said Woods shattered the bones of the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Other injuries to the foot and ankle bones required screws and pins, Mahajan said in a statement released on Woods’ Twitter account late Tuesday evening.

Convalescence

Tiger was waiting to return to training after his last back surgery on December 23rd. He last played on December 20 in the PNC championship in Orlando, Florida with his 12-year-old son, Charlie. Woods also has a 13-year-old daughter, Samantha.

Previous

This is the third time Tiger Woods has been a victim of road accidents. The best known occurred at the dawn of Thanksgiving in 2009, when he hit a fire hydrant with the SUV and then ran into a tree. In May 2017, Florida police found him asleep behind the wheel of a damaged car parked on the side of the road. He was arrested on charges of impaired driving, but was later cleared because he proved it was an unexpected reaction to back pain medications. Woods later pleaded guilty to reckless driving and turned to a clinic for help with drug addiction and sleep disorders.

Obama

“Never give up Tiger!” wrote Barack Obama on Twitter, the former US president after calling Woods “the greatest of all time in golf”, wished him “a quick recovery”. And many are the thoughts that have been addressed to him by celebrities and colleagues: Jack Nicklaus and Michael Jordan, Mike Tyson and Donald Trump, who played golf with Woods and awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019. the tournament in progress in Florida, where Woods could have played. “What a pity,” said Justin Thomas, no. 3 in the world and one of Tiger’s closest circuit players. “It hurts to see one of my closest friends have an accident. I just hope he is well ”.

Present as one of the eight inaugural sports in the First Paralympic Games, Para table tennis has grown over the years and now has athletes participating from all corners of the world. These are other facts to know about this sport before Tokyo 2020:

1. Table tennis was included in the first Paralympic Games in Rome in 1960, 28 years before it made its Olympic debut. That first event consisted of 11 contested medal events, six for men and five for women.

2. All events were for wheelchair athletes, until Toronto 1976 included the first events for standing players. Currently the sport includes a range of athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities.

3. Table tennis was invented in Britain in the 1880s. The upper classes practiced it at the dining room table, using household objects as equipment. Stacks of books were used as a net, a champagne cork as a ball, and cigar box lids as popsicles. By 1900, the sport was evolving rapidly and growing in popularity as an organized sport.

4. Matches are played to the best of five sets of 11 points each. In fact, Para table tennis follows many of the basic rules regarding equipment, match process and point scoring of its version for athletes without disabilities. One of the differences is that in some classes there are special rules regarding the throwing of the ball of the serve. According to Olympic rules, the ball must be placed in the open palm, thrown at least 16 cm in the air and struck. In Para table tennis, where this is not possible, the ball can be thrown by placing it on the elbow or on the racket.

6. Table tennis athletes are grouped into 11 classes according to the impact of their disability on their performance: wheelchair (classes 1-5), standing (classes 6-10) and intellectual disability (class 11). Within the wheelchair and standing classes, the lower the number, the greater the impact of the disability on an athlete’s ability to compete.

7. In Tokyo 2020 there will be 31 medal events between individuals and teams:

Singles – Class 1 (Men); Singles – Class 1-2 (Women); Singles – Class 2 (Men); Singles – Class 3 (Men / Women); Singles – Class 4 (Men / Women); Singles – Class 5 (Men / Women); Singles – Class 6 (Men / Women); Singles – Class 7; (Men women); Singles – Class 8 (Men / Women); Singles – Class 9 (Men / Women); Individual – Class 10 (Men / Women); Individual – Class 11 (Men / Women); Team – Class 1-2 (Men); Team – Class 1-3 (Women); Team – Class 3 (Men); Team – Class 4-5 (Men / Women); Team – Class 6-7 (Men); Team – Class 6-8 (Women); Team – Class 8 (Men); Team – Class 9-10 (Men / Women)

8. The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games competition will take place from August 25 to September 3 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, with 43 matches on the first day alone.

9. The table and net dimensions used in the Para table tennis are exactly the same as in the Olympic Games, with a modification for players using wheelchairs: the table legs are fixed at least 40 cm inside from the baseline, to prevent players from hitting the table when approaching it.

10. The first World Table Tennis Championships did not take place until long after its introduction to the Paralympic Games and they were held in Assen, the Netherlands, in 1990.

Penguins in the Antarctic battle against the cold and group together in order to keep each other warm. But if they stand too close together, they overheat. Consequently, there is an ideal temperature that the penguins reach when they keep a small distance from each other, but not too small. Each individual penguin acts in its own self-interest, moving in precisely the direction of the largest temperature increase or drop.

This is an example of a multi-body system of communicating active particles or of ‘interactive agents’. Researchers from HHU, the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching wanted to better understand how to describe these multi-body systems, because many other systems might use similar self-optimization principles.

The team working with first author Dr. Alexandra Zampetaki from the Institute of Theoretical Physics II at HHU has now found that it is this individual self-interest that creates an ideal zone for the entire group, where all of the penguins have the perfect temperature.

The physicists used a fundamentally new model for active particles that can self-direct their direction of motion. The particles communicate with each other by perceiving a jointly available resource that can be abstractly described by what is referred to as a ‘scalar field’ — for example a temperature field. The effect of the field is that the particles move in the direction that is most favourable for them to reach their ideal situation.

The researchers also found that the interaction with the field automatically leads to what are known as ‘three-body forces’ or ‘triplet forces’ between the particles. While all fundamental forces in nature — such as gravitation and electromagnetic Coulomb force — are a pair of forces between pairs of particles, triplet forces only occur when three particles are present simultaneously. These triplet forces are the key to understanding the collective dynamics of the communicating active particles.

“Almost all fundamental laws of physics can be described as a minimisation problem, for example such that the overall energy becomes minimal,” explained Prof. Dr. Hartmut Löwen, Head of the Institute at HHU. “By contrast, there was no minimisation in the system we examined. Instead, there was optimisation to reach an ideal zone.” This allows for an internal group dynamic that is ultimately beneficial for all, despite being driven by self-interest. The behaviour results in an ordered, aperiodic configuration in which agents with fewer neighbours stand closer together to keep each other warm — just like the penguins.

Prof. Dr. Benno Liebchen from TU Darmstadt added: “The interaction between the penguins via a collectively created field is reminiscent of how many micro-organisms communicate. For example, bacteria that consume oxygen could in principle use a similar optimisation principle to achieve the optimum oxygen concentration without having to coordinate their behaviour.”

Dr. Zampetaki concluded: “The optimisation principle we discovered builds a bridge between physics and biology and shows how quantitative modelling of simple communication rules leads to phenomena that would be unachievable based on ordinary pairing interaction.”

Therefore, the 37th edition of the America’s Cup begins to take shape. For the edition to be held in 2024 there is also the return of Alinghi: for the Swiss team the goal will be to complete a legendary work, after victories in 2003 and 2007

Flip through the scrapbook of the last one America’s Cup of Luna Rossa and already clean the camera lens for the next edition. On the occasion of the presentation of the book by Carlo Borlenghi, photographer who has always followed the world of sailing at 360 degrees, Max Sirena, Francesco Bruni and the Luna Rossa guys relived their story in the Auckland bay through truly suggestive shots, but looked to the future that awaits them in the next edition.

The return of Alinghi

Returns, one above all: that of Alinghi, the Swiss team which won the Old Pitcher in 2003 e 2007 and ancient enemies: the defender, Team New Zealand and the British of Ineos presenting themselves as Challenger of Record. For Italy, which has never managed to win this trophy in over 170 years of history, it will try again Red Moon which in the last edition had won the Prada Cup lost 7-3 in the America’s Cup final against the New Zealanders. “Luna Rossa launches the challenge and signs up for the next America’s Cup! 4 teams are officially registered at the moment and the names are scary!”, the comment on social media by Gabriele “Ganga” Bruni, FIV technician and brother of Checco, helmsman of Luna Rossa.

America’s Cup, the new protocol published: the news

The protocol – i.e. the rules of engagement – for the regatta that will take place in 2024 was published in the last few weeks: the flying monohulls remain, capable of flying over water up to over 90 km / h, fewer men on board (from 11 to 8), was born class Ac40 to facilitate the entry of young sailors and sailors in the regattas approaching the real Cup. The seat is to be defined and will come communicated within and no later than March 31, 2022: I’m in contention Auckland, Valencia and Saudi Arabia. The camera lens is ready, Max Sirena’s goal is already clear: to go back into the water to win.

“Luna Rossa launches the challenge and signs up for the next America’s Cup. 4 teams are officially registered at the moment and the names are scary!”, The words of Gabriele Bruni. Therefore, the 37th edition of the America’s Cup begins to take shape. For the edition to be held in 2024 there is also the return of Alinghi: for the Swiss team the goal will be to complete a legendary work, after victories in 2003 and 2007

Flip through the scrapbook of the last one America’s Cup of Luna Rossa and already clean the camera lens for the next edition. On the occasion of the presentation of the book by Carlo Borlenghi, photographer who has always followed the world of sailing at 360 degrees, Max Sirena, Francesco Bruni and the Luna Rossa guys relived their story in the Auckland bay through truly suggestive shots, but looked to the future that awaits them in the next edition.

The return of Alinghi

Returns, one above all: that of Alinghi, the Swiss team which won the Old Pitcher in 2003 e 2007 and ancient enemies: the defender, Team New Zealand and the British of Ineos presenting themselves as Challenger of Record. For Italy, which has never managed to win this trophy in over 170 years of history, it will try again Red Moon which in the last edition had won the Prada Cup lost 7-3 in the America’s Cup final against the New Zealanders. “Luna Rossa launches the challenge and signs up for the next America’s Cup! 4 teams are officially registered at the moment and the names are scary!”, the comment on social media by Gabriele “Ganga” Bruni, FIV technician and brother of Checco, helmsman of Luna Rossa.

America’s Cup, the new protocol published: the news

The protocol – i.e. the rules of engagement – for the regatta that will take place in 2024 was published in the last few weeks: the flying monohulls remain, capable of flying over water up to over 90 km / h, fewer men on board (from 11 to 8), was born class Ac40 to facilitate the entry of young sailors and sailors in the regattas approaching the real Cup. The seat is to be defined and will come communicated within and no later than March 31, 2022: I’m in contention Auckland, Valencia and Saudi Arabia. The camera lens is ready, Max Sirena’s goal is already clear: to go back into the water to win.

  1. Marilyn A. Brown, Valentina Sanmiguel Herrera. Combined heat and power as a platform for clean energy systems. Applied Energy, 2021; 304: 117686 DOI: 10.1016/j.apenergy.2021.117686

The paper, digitally available now and in print on December 15 in the journal Applied Energy, finds that CHP — or cogeneration — could measurably reduce Georgia’s carbon footprint while creating green jobs. Georgia ranks 8th among all 50 states for total net electricity generation and 11th for total carbon dioxide emissions, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

“There is an enormous opportunity for CHP to save industries money and make them more competitive, while at the same time reducing air pollution, creating jobs and enhancing public health,” said principal investigator Marilyn Brown, Regents and Brook Byers professor of Sustainable Systems at Georgia Tech’s School of Public Policy.

Benefiting the Environment, Economy, and Public Health

The research finds that if Georgia added CHP systems to the 9,374 sites that are suitable for cogeneration, it could reduce carbon emissions in Georgia by 13%. Bringing CHP to just 34 of Georgia’s industrial plants, each with 25 megawatts of electricity capacity, could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2%. The study authors, using modeling tools they developed, note that this “achievable” level of CHP adoption could add 2,000 jobs to the state; full deployment could support 13,000 new jobs.

According to Brown, CHP systems can be 85 to 90% efficient, compared with 45 to 60% efficiency of traditional heat and power systems. CHP has advantages over renewable electricity from solar and wind, which only offers intermittent power.

CHP technologies co-produce electricity useful for heat and cooling, resulting in ultra-high system efficiencies, cleaner air, and more affordable energy. Georgia industries that would profit from CHP include chemical, textile, pulp and paper, and food production. Large commercial buildings, campuses, and military bases also could benefit from CHP. By utilizing both electricity and heat from a single source onsite, the energy system if more reliable, resilient, and efficient.

CHP can meet the same needs at higher efficiency using less overall energy, while reducing peak demand on a region’s utility-operated power grid, Brown explained. In addition, if there is an outage or disruption in a community’s power grid, companies with their own onsite electricity sources can continue to have power.

Calculating CHP Costs and Benefits per Plant

The research used a database of every Georgia industrial site to determine which facilitates operated or could operate a CHP system. They then identified the appropriate type of CHP system for plants without one. To help assess if a CHP system was a financially sound investment, they developed a model to estimate the benefits and costs of each CHP system, factoring in the cost to install the equipment, operations and maintenance, fuel expenses, and financing. The result was an estimated “net present value” of each system that reflected the present value of future costs and benefits, Brown explained.

The paper also used data analytics to predict economic and health benefits of CHP for Georgians. Plants converting to cogeneration could boost the state’s clean energy workforce by 2,000 to 13,000 depending on how widely it’s adopted, Brown said. Currently, the state has about 2,600 jobs in electric vehicle manufacturing and less than 5,000 in the solar industry, according to the 11th Annual National Solar Jobs Census 2020.

In addition to job growth, CHP adoption could lead to dramatic health benefits for the state’s more vulnerable residents, Brown emphasized. “We’re displacing more polluting electricity when companies generate their own from waste heat,” she noted.

The study estimates nearly $150 million in reduced health costs and ecological damages in 2030 in the “achievable” scenario for CHP, with nearly $1 billion in health and ecological benefits if every Georgia plant identified in the study adopted CHP.

“The public health improvements are gigantic — that’s a lot of lives saved, as well as childhood asthma and heart problems avoided,” Brown said.

Georgia Tech’s research was sponsored by Drawdown Georgia, a statewide initiative focused on scaling market-ready, high-impact climate solutions in Georgia this decade. The organization has identified a roadmap of 20 solutions, including electricity solutions such as CHP.

The impact of CHP could be dramatic considering that electricity generation accounts for nearly 37% of Georgia’s energy-related carbon dioxide emissions, according to findings Brown and other researchers published earlier this year in the journal, Environmental Management.

Identifying Ideal CHP Sites

Georgia Tech researchers identified numerous different industrial sites in Georgia that could use combined heat and power. Ideal locations include established universities or military bases, and large industrial sites such as paper making, chemical sites, and food processing facilities. Georgia’s number-one industry is agriculture, with chemicals and wood products among the state’s top manufacturers.

“I find Georgia’s potential to take advantage of existing industrial and commercial facilities to build CHP plants very interesting,” said study co-author Valentina Sanmiguel, a 2020 master’s graduate of the School of Public Policy in sustainable energy and environmental management. “I hope both industries and policymakers in Georgia realize the benefits that cogeneration has on the environment, the economy and society and take action to implement CHP in the state at a greater scale.”

Dissecting Hurdles to Adoption

Despite the advantages of CHP, there remains hurdles to its adoption — for one, establishing these facilities is capital-intensive, ranging from tens of millions for a campus CHP plant to hundreds of millions for a large plant at an industrial site. Once built, these facilities require their own workforce to operate, explained Brown.

“The cost-competitiveness of CHP systems depends significantly on two factors — whether they are customer or utility-owned, and the type of rate tariff they operate under,” said Brown.

In the paper, Georgia Tech cited three ways to improve the business case for CHP: clean energy portfolio standards, regulatory reform, and financial incentives such as tax credits.

Those approaches have worked well in North Carolina, noted Isaac Panzarella, director of the Department of Energy Southeast CHP Technical Assistance Partnership, and the assistant director for Technical Services for the North Carolina’s Clean Energy Technology Center at North Carolina State University. North Carolina State University, where Panzarella is based, recently installed its second CHP facility on campus.

North Carolina, he added, has a policy that supports the use of renewable energy. Along with solar and wind, North Carolina embraced converting waste from swine and poultry-feeding operations into renewable energy.

“It’s taken a long time, but finally there are more and more of these digester or biomass operations, using CHP to generate electricity and thermal energy from those waste resources,” he said.

While Georgia Tech is not yet operating a CHP system, the Campus Sustainability Committee is currently examining options for lessening their energy footprint.

“Georgia Tech seeks to leverage Dr. Brown’s important research, and the deep faculty expertise at Georgia Tech in climate solutions, as we advance the development of a campus-wide Carbon Neutrality Plan and Campus Master Plan in 2022,” said Anne Rogers, associate director, Office of Campus Sustainability. “The Campus Master and Carbon Neutrality Plan will provide a roadmap to implementing sustainable infrastructure solutions to advance Georgia Tech’s strategic goals.”

Brown emphasized that Georgia utilities should get behind cogeneration projects to help the state reduce its carbon footprint.

Another hurdle is the relatively low electric rates in the Southeast, which provide less of an opportunity to achieve a reasonable payback on those systems. Georgia’s industries that wish to be competitive globally need to look at CHP considering that the rest of the world is embracing renewable and recycled energy at a faster rate than the U.S., Brown noted.

“In industries where CHP is well understood, and there are solidly established businesses, it’s a great investment and a smart way to keep jobs in the community, while being good for the environment. The hurdles are not about technology; they are all about policies and business models,” she concluded.

Giulio Masperi

For the second consecutive year the WRC World Rally Championship ends at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza and on the asphalt of the Bergamo mountains with the world titles to be awarded. From Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 November the World Rally Championship circus stops in Italy for the twelfth and final round of the 2021 season. 82 crews have entered, including ten in the main class. 16 special stages are scheduled for a total of 253.18 kilometers of challenge against time. Sébastien Ogier is the favorite at the Forum8 Aci Rally in Monza: the Frenchman at the wheel of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Yaris defends a 17-point advantage over his teammate Elfyn Evans, who contends with the seven-time world champion for success in the drivers’ standings. Among the constructors Toyota leads to 47 lengths from Hyundai. The public can access the stands of the Temple of Speed, with ticket and green pass.

WRC RALLY MONZA: ULTIMO ROUND

As in 2020, when Japan’s forfeit – expected at the end of the WRC World Championship – opened the doors to the second Italian stage, also in 2021 the last world championship round is staged at the ACI Rally in Monza. The track? It mixes special stages obtained between the road track, the High Speed ​​ring and the internal connecting roads (dirt roads) of the sports facility inaugurated in 1922, and the asphalt hamlets drawn on the mountains of Bergamo. An event that should take place in favorable weather, no rain, and with typically autumn temperatures. To celebrate Ogier’s eighth world title – who will not compete in the entire WRC calendar in 2022 – sailed by Julien Ingrassia, regardless of the result of his teammate, a third place would be enough, or a placement from fourth to sixth place, also conquering some points in the final Power Stage. On the other hand, Evans must aim for success and then hope that mathematics is on his “side”. Among the manufacturers, a Yaris Wrc in the top seven cars would be enough for Toyota to get on the top step of the podium.

WRC RALLY MONZA: THE DECLARATIONS

For Sébastien Ogier the Monza round could be worth the eighth world title. “The situation is more favorable than when we arrived in Monza a year ago, but nothing is certain yet and we need to stay focused,” said the Frenchman. “After a central part of the season with various difficulties – explains the contender for the“ crown ”, Evans – in the last couple of races we did well. Monza? The special stages in the mountains have a lot of character, while those on the track are varied and not very smooth. After the experience of 2020 we have a certain idea of ​​what awaits us “.

Giulio Masperi

For the second consecutive year the WRC World Rally Championship ends at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza and on the asphalt of the Bergamo mountains with the world titles to be awarded. From Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 November the World Rally Championship circus stops in Italy for the twelfth and final round of the 2021 season. 82 crews have entered, including ten in the main class. 16 special stages are scheduled for a total of 253.18 kilometers of challenge against time. Sébastien Ogier is the favorite at the Forum8 Aci Rally in Monza: the Frenchman at the wheel of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Yaris defends a 17-point advantage over his teammate Elfyn Evans, who contends with the seven-time world champion for success in the drivers’ standings. Among the constructors Toyota leads to 47 lengths from Hyundai. The public can access the stands of the Temple of Speed, with ticket and green pass.

WRC RALLY MONZA: ULTIMO ROUND

As in 2020, when Japan’s forfeit – expected at the end of the WRC World Championship – opened the doors to the second Italian stage, also in 2021 the last world championship round is staged at the ACI Rally in Monza. The track? It mixes special stages obtained between the road track, the High Speed ​​ring and the internal connecting roads (dirt roads) of the sports facility inaugurated in 1922, and the asphalt hamlets drawn on the mountains of Bergamo. An event that should take place in favorable weather, no rain, and with typically autumn temperatures. To celebrate Ogier’s eighth world title – who will not compete in the entire WRC calendar in 2022 – sailed by Julien Ingrassia, regardless of the result of his teammate, a third place would be enough, or a placement from fourth to sixth place, also conquering some points in the final Power Stage. On the other hand, Evans must aim for success and then hope that mathematics is on his “side”. Among the manufacturers, a Yaris Wrc in the top seven cars would be enough for Toyota to get on the top step of the podium. Among the WRCs, Toyota has entered four Yaris, Hyundai three i20 Coupé, M-Sport Ford two Fiesta Wrc.
