Record-breaking night awaits in Madrid

first_imgMADRID, Spain (AP):It could be a night of records at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium today.In addition to trying to win their Champions League group, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund will also be looking to make history when they meet in their final Group F match.One draw and Madrid will equal the club’s longest unbeaten run of 34 games in all competitions. One goal and Dortmund will match the most goals ever scored in the tournament’s group stage – 20.On a personal level, Cristiano Ronaldo can become the first player to score 100 times in European competitions if he is able to score twice.Madrid are in position to equal the unbeaten record set under coach Leo Beenhakker in the late 1980s. They would then be five short of Barcelona’s Spanish record of 39 consecutive games without a loss, set last year.Madrid have not been defeated since April at Wolfsburg in the quarterfinals of last season’s Champions League.Dortmund have a chance to become the fourth club to score 20 goals in the group stage. And if they score two or more goals, they will surpass the mark set by Madrid in 2013-14, Barcelona in 2011-12 and Manchester United in 1998-99.Dortmund have scored at least once in every group game so far, and have a shot at the record, thanks mostly to routs against Legia Warsaw 6-0 in Poland and 8-4 in Germany.Ronaldo’s 100th goal has eluded him for some time he hasn’t scored in Champions League play since a 2-2 draw at Dortmund in September. Madrid scored 10 goals in the three matches since then, but none came from Ronaldo.last_img read more

first_imgPhoto: New Totem Archers President Rory Chapple (left) and Misty Hebert present their request for a 2010 grant on Monday afternoon – Christine Rumleskie/Energeticcity.ca City Council sat down to listen to a group of local non-profit organizations on Monday afternoon.The City is reviewing its Grant-in-Aid funding allocations before heading into deliberations for the 2010 budget.- Advertisement -Six delegations presented their case for the grant.  New to the list of requests is the New Totem Archers, who are asking for $27,720.  President Rory Chapple says the money will help offset operational costs. [asset|aid=1951|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=0bb375dc451eba342a1ff0a23e063524-Chapple 1_1_Pub.mp3]The Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion organization is asking for $1,500 – the same as last year.  The Fort St. John Lions Club wants $1,500, and the Fort St. John Literacy Society is applying for $2,520, just over $1,000 more than last year.The SPCA is also requesting for the same funding as last year. They are asking for $15,000 and for the city to renew its $40,000 pound-keeper agreement.   Branch Manager and volunteer Rosolynn Kalb says the local branch is running a deficit and the grants go towards education in the community.   Kalb says the branch can’t cut costs, and workers are already making low wages.  In fact, Kalb is the only volunteer SPCA Branch Manager in B.C.   Councilor Lori Ackerman says that’s impressive.

CES 2018: First Look at Panasonic’s New Lumix GH5S

first_imgAt CES 2018, Panasonic unveiled its new Lumix GH5S with an updated sensor, new Cinema 4K capabilities, and additional improvements.Fresh off the CES presses, Panasonic’s new Lumix GH5S has leaked online after much much rumor and fanfare. The predecessor to Panasonic’s popular Lumix GH5, the antecedent’s update looks to be a truly video-forward mirrorless camera that will compete with Canon and Sony in 2018. While the GH5 was a strong offering at its price point (currently around $2,000), the GH5S should stay competitive with updated capabilities at a similar opening price point (rumored to be around $2,500).New SensorWhile the GH5 boasted a powerful 20.3MP Micro Four Thirds Live MOS sensor, Panasonic has announced that the GH5S will feature a new 10.2MP multi-aspect sensor, which should improve max ISO capabilities up into the 51,200 range (while the GH5’s ceiling was around 25,600). The new sensor will also provide sufficient margin to get the same angle of view in 4:3, 17:9, 16:9, and 3:2 aspect ratios.Record Cinema 4K at 60/50pPerhaps the biggest headline for the GH5S’s advanced capabilities is the camera’s ability to record Cinema 4K footage at 60/50p. This is a major improvement and certainly a first in the market at this price point. The GH5S also now offers better color reproduction with new internal 4:2:2 10-bit recording capabilities with pre-installed V-Log (no longer an add-on purchase). Full HD and 4K video recording compiles with 4K HDR video with Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) for unlimited recording capabilities as well.Full List of ImprovementsFor those interested, the lightweight body will remain the same, but several other updates and improvements (many the result of the new sensor), will increase the GH5S’s capabilities for both video and photography as Panasonic’s affordable 4K play will undoubtedly send ripples throughout the industry well after CES ends.Atomos recently got their hands on the new model, testing its new capabilities.Enjoy saturated colours and capture sparkling shots even when shooting in V-Log format in the dimmest conditions. Colours are rich and deep even in super low light and reds are really red. Huge amounts of colour information are retained with 10-bit. This technological advance puts paid to the widespread assumption that you should never shoot Log in low light with mirrorless cameras because of excess noise. Now you can get the full benefits of a wider dynamic range and punchy colours and enjoy a clean image while staying in Panasonic’s V-Log, giving you a greater ability to manipulate your image in post-production.Specs:10.2MP multi-aspect sensor4:3, 17:9, 16:9, and 3:2 aspect ratios4K 60/50p recording in Cinema 4K (4,096 x 2,160)Max ISO 51,200 ceilingInternal 4:2:2 10-bit recording with pre-installed V-LogDual Native ISO TechnologyThe 225-area AF arrangement and light levels as low as -5EVReported Price: $2,500 (body only)last_img read more

first_imgChafing of the skin refers to red sore skin that has been irritated by something continuously rubbing against it. Wear appropriate clean clothes for activities like sports or exercise to avoid chafing.

SPORT-PARALYMPICS 2LAST

first_imgCaught in political and economic crises, Rio 2016 Caught in political and economic crises, Rio 2016 organisers have skimped as far as they can on food, transport and accommodation.Part of Rios problem is that it is following London 2012, hailed as the best Paralympics ever in terms of public support and sporting performance.To keep the Rio Games on track, city authorities had to promise 150 million reais ($46 million, 41 million euros) in August while the government got state companies to inject another 100 million reais in sponsorship.As the Games finally get underway, the 41 career gold medals won by blind American swimmer Trischa Zorn between 1980 and 2004 looks unbeatable, but the Paralympics will inevitably produce new tales of courage.The 28-year-old Rahman, disabled since birth, is aiming to become the first Paralympian to bench press 300kg. His rivals in the powerlifting over 107kg category have already conceded the gold medal to the Iranian. – Show will go on -====================China will have a record 308 athletes in Rio looking to beat their 95 gold medals from London when they topped the table for the third straight Paralympics.They have swimmer Xu Qing competing in his fourth and possibly last Games, seeking to add to his seven gold medals.Meanwhile Britains Weir is in Rio to add to his six gold medals. The 37-year-old, born with a spinal deformity that has kept him confined to a wheelchair since birth, is entered in five events.”It will be my last Paralympics and I just want to medal,” he said. “If I come away with a medal, Ill be happy. My coach is telling me that Im quicker and faster than Ive ever been, so that gives me a lot of confidence.”advertisementAnd IPC president Philip Craven said that despite the cuts, the show will go on — something that looked in doubt when the funding crisis came to light last month.”The Games will happen, but they may not be — I wouldnt say tip-top, but maybe not as relatively luxurious as in the past,” he said.”Paralympians are resilient people, (as are) the staff teams that back them up, and our Paralympic family will pull together,” added Craven.
