Pogba latest: Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United alerted as agent hints at Juventus exit

first_imgArsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United target Paul Pogba cannot stay in Italy for much longer, according to the player’s agent.Pogba has been attracting interest from clubs all across Europe over the past year, including Champions League holders Real Madrid.However, the strongest interest has come from the Premier League, with Arsenal, Chelsea and his former club Manchester United all being linked with a big-money move for the midfielder.Pogba has been a revelation since moving to Juventus on a free transfer from United in 2012, scoring 22 goals in 104 appearances.The 21-year-old recently signed a contract extension with Juventus until 2019, but his agent Mino Raiola has now revealed that his stay in Serie A may not last that long.“He cannot stay for very much longer in Italy. It will depend on the Bianconeri,” Raiola told Sports Mediaset.“We extended his contract and we are happy that we did so. But when it is the right time to leave, we will inform them. I don’t know when that moment will be.” Paul Pogba 1last_img read more

Kompany says tomorrows match is not decisive

first_imgFor the Manchester City captain, the road to the title is still very long as his team takes on Liverpool tomorrow nightThe match of the season in the English Premier League is happening tomorrow.Liverpool will take on Manchester City, as two of the best three teams in the league define the future of the competition.And for Manchester City’s captain Vincent Kompany, tomorrow’s match is one of many and there is still time to decide a champion.“I’ve been long enough in the game to know how important this game is but, at the same time, to know that this is not the all-defining game – as much as people want to put it this way – because so many things can happen,” the 32-year-old was echoed by Four Four Two.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Who would have thought that we would have three difficult games in December? Nobody would have, a month back.”“So there’s nothing to say that with circumstances, injuries and everything that it can’t happen to any team in this league,” he added.“Therefore, this game – as much as we want to, need to win it – it’s not the all-defining game.”“But if we play how we can, then I will feel very confident – despite the result, whatever it is – to go into every other competition and try and win it,” he concluded.last_img read more

San Diego County to close four parks during August for maintenance

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The county of San Diego will close four parks Thursday for the month of August, allowing county parks officials to conduct park maintenance.The county will close El Capitan Reserve, Hellhole Canyon Preserve, Mt. Gower Preserve and Wilderness Gardens from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31 to conduct maintenance like trail restoration. Agua Caliente Regional Park and Vallecito County Park are also closed throughout the summer and will reopen during Labor Day weekend.While the six parks are closed throughout the month, more than 100 other parks will be open around the county. In addition, county parks will host events like movie screenings, arts and crafts, live entertainment, food trucks and other amenities.For residents who plan to hike at a county park, parks and recreation officials suggest taking multiple steps to stay safe such as taking plenty of water, wearing sunscreen, wearing lightweight clothing and sturdy shoes and bringing a fully charged mobile phone and a map. Residents are also advised to tell someone where they plan to go and when they plan to return.A full list of county parks, their hours and their activities can be found at sdparks.org.

Astronomers study star formation and gas flows in the galaxy NGC 1365

first_img Ultra-luminous infrared galaxy with strong ionized-gas outflow discovered Located some 56 million light years away in the Fornax cluster, NGC 1365, dubbed the Great Barred Spiral Galaxy, is a barred spiral and ringed galaxy of Seyfert type. Although many observations of NGC 1365 have been conducted to date, it has not been yet thoroughly studied at mid-infrared wavelengths.In general, mid-infrared observations have the potential to uncover crucial details about molecular gas clouds and ionized gas, which is key to study the distribution and kinematics of the mass-dominating old stellar population in galaxies. Such observations could also provide important information on star formation history and properties of central engines of galaxies.A team of European astronomers led by Nastaran Fazeli of University of Cologne in Germany performed near-infrared observations of NGC 1365 hoping to learn more insights into gas and stellar kinematics in this galaxy. In their observational campaign, the researchers concentrated on the approximately 2,600-light-year-wide circumnuclear region of NGC 1365, studying it using the Spectrograph for INtegral Field Observations in the Near Infrared (SINFONI) instrument on VLT in Chile.”In the framework of understanding the gas and stellar kinematics and their relations to AGNs [active galactic nuclei] and galaxy evolution scenarios, we present spatially resolved distributions and kinematics of the stars and gas in the central ~800-pc radius of the nearby Seyfert galaxy NGC 1365,” the astronomers wrote in the paper.SINFONI observations resulted in detecting parts of the starburst circumnuclear ring (with a radius of about 3,260 light years) and resolving some weaker starburst regions within the inner ring and the nucleus (radius of approximately 1,000 light years). The researchers found that the circumnuclear ring has strong emitting “hot spots” in optical wavelengths, which have starburst ages below 10 million years with an age gradient on the west side of the ring. The study also revealed strong broad and narrow emission-line components of ionized gas in the nuclear region, as well as hot dust with a temperature of approximately 1,300 K. The researchers noted that these properties are typical for type 1 AGN.Observations indicate that the stellar velocity field of NGC 1365 shows an overall rotation. Moreover, ionized and molecular gas show an overall rotation in the general orientation with the stellar velocity.The astronomers calculated that the galaxy’s black hole mass is from five to 10 million times greater than the mass of our sun. They found that the hot molecular gas is around 615 solar masses, what corresponds to a cold molecular gas mass at a level between 200 and 800 million solar masses. Additionally, the ionized gas mass was estimated to be about 5.3 million solar masses. Using European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have investigated the galaxy NGC 1365. The study, presented in a paper published January 18 on the arXiv.org pre-print server, reveals essential insights about star formation processes and gas flows in this galaxy.

Sculpting thoughts

first_imgSangeet Natak Akademi is hosting a show titled Yoga Chakra: Tradition and Modernity by Seema Kohli’s iconography and philosophy of the Yogini cult that inspires her work and life, with constant references to the various form of yoginis and matrikas in her paintings. It will be showcased in an art exhibition and multimedia project with evocative metal sculptures, video performances, tea stains inks and watercolour on arche’s paper. The show will commence on June 21 and will be on till June 28.  Kohli who received the prestigious Gold Award at the Florence Biennale for her video installation, Swayamsiddha — Myth, Mind and Movement, says: “It is both the iconography as well as the philosophy of the Yogini cult that inspires my work and my life. There are constant references to the various forms of yoginis and matrikas in my paintings. The idea of yoginis becomes very fascinating in today’s Kalyuga because yogini is not simply a thought and neither is her message or a sermon.”  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’She further adds: “She is experimenting on herself through kriya and yoga through which she enters our blood, vein, bones and our soul. She comes down to subliminal levels and starts her own journey, her khel — her play with herself which takes us to new mystical heights. My work I believe then becomes an exploration into these realms of the self and the relationship of the self with the larger cosmos that seeks an identity, symbol and meaning.last_img read more
