Dortmund boss Sancho is something special

first_imgBorussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre expects Jadon Sancho to get even better given his incredible progressThe 18-year-old winger has enjoyed a stellar breakthrough campaign at Dortmund this season and made his England debut over the recent international break.Sancho’s impressive displays at Signal Iduna Park earned him a new long-term contract at Dortmund last month.Speaking ahead of their Bundesliga game with VFL Wolfsburg on Saturday, Favre hailed Sancho and his special achievements.“Of course he has a lot of potential. He’s only 18, and he’s already playing with the England national team,” said Favre, according to Daily Mail.borussia dortmund, marco reus, jadon sancho, paco alcacerReport: Dortmund hammer four past Leverkusen George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund put four past Bayer Leverkusen.Borussia Dortmund leapfrogged Bayern Munich to claim second place in the Bundesliga.

He just has to keep working hard, keep working calmly, and needs to have a lot of fun.”Sancho has scored five goals and provided eight assists in 14 games across all competitions this season.last_img read more

Paul McGrath Pogba owes a debt to Man United

first_imgEx-Manchester United star Paul McGrath named Paul Pogba as one of three players that must step now and prove themselvesFollowing his World Cup triumph with France in the summer, Pogba has failed to replicate his performances for the national side at United.The 25-year-old midfielder’s relationship with Jose Mourinho fell apart altogether at the start of the season.But now the Portuguese coach has left, McGrath feels it’s time for Pogba to answer his critics by proving himself in the Premier League.“I don’t like having a straight-out go at a lad who is still actually a young footballer – but Paul Pogba now owes a debt to Manchester United,” McGrath told the Irish Independent.“He’s a world champion. And I’m sorry, but it is not as simple as saying that with France last summer he was surrounded by class acts with who it was easy to play – Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, N’Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi and Raphael Varane, etc.“It doesn’t matter who you are playing with. I saw Paul Pogba chasing back, heading balls out of his own penalty area, tackling, covering, grafting, when France were under real pressure protecting a 1-0 against Belgium in the World Cup semi-final.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“That was nothing to do with the quality of his team-mates. It was Pogba wanting to be the best player and team-mate he could be, to be a winner, not the player of the last two months at Manchester United.”The former Irish defender added that forwards Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez must also step up now Mourinho’s longer around.He added: “Pogba is not alone in not producing his best. There are others.“Cynics say Jose Mourinho only bought both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to stop Chelsea and Manchester City getting their hands on the players.“There’s a grain of truth in that about Sanchez for sure, and Pep Guardiola must be thinking ‘what an escape that was’ when he considers the outlay the Chilean international would have cost his club.“As for Lukaku, I’m not so sure. What I wonder about him is that his style is not best suited to a rigid, slow, possession-based game that Mourinho favoured. Why did he buy him?“Lukaku is about power and putting himself about and disrupting defences. Mourinho wanted his players to play around those defences, not through them! What did he want the big Belgian to do?”last_img read more

The U.S. Coast Guard seized it in international waters and was offloaded right here in San Diego.CEO of Confidential Recovery, Scott Silverman, was on Good Morning San Diego to tell us where the drugs could be headed. Silverman also warned San Diegans of the dangers of cocaine, including the deadly overdoses it has caused in our community from being laced with fentanyl.RELATED STORY: Cocaine laced with fentanyl leads to multiple deaths in San Diego Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Health, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Jason Austell, center_img October 4, 2018 Posted: October 4, 2018 Updated: 1:08 PMlast_img read more

Trees found to break at near the same wind speed regardless of

first_img Journal information: Physical Review E (—A small team of researchers with École Polytechnique in France has found that all trees, regardless of size or species, tend to break at near the same wind speed. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes tests they conducted in a lab and how they came up with a scaling law to describe the point at which a tree will break due to wind stress. Trees employ similar strategies to outcompete their neighbors © 2016 People have noticed for some time that when high winds strike, trees, regardless of size, age or species all seem to snap in a given area—but only when the wind reaches some given speed. Up until now, it has not been clear if all trees snap at the same wind speed, or if there is a gradient of sorts. To find out, the researchers in France conducted experiments where they attached water buckets to wooden rods to measure both their flexibility and the point at which they would break. In so doing, the team found that the rods tended to break at near the same point. Next, the team combined their lab experiments with data collected by others over time that suggested that trees tend to snap when wind speeds reach approximately 42 meters per second. Using all the information at hand, the team came up with a scaling law to describe when a tree will break due to wind force: (V∼D0.75/L), where V is wind velocity, D is diameter of the wood and L is its length. When applied to trees, rather than just rods, the team found that variance due to physical differences between species was minimal—doubling the size of the tree, for example, made a difference of just 9 percent, and oak trees, notorious for their strength broke at speeds just 10 percent higher than pine.The researchers explain that the size of a tree does not play a bigger role because they grow at a rate where their height is proportional to diameter, and because the larger a tree grows the more defects in the wood come into play—also as a tree grows larger, more and more of its surface area is exposed to wind forces.

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.93.023001ABSTRACTData from storms suggest that the critical wind speed at which trees break is constant (≃42m/s), regardless of tree characteristics. We question the physical origin of this observation both experimentally and theoretically. By combining Hooke’s law, Griffith’s criterion, and tree allometry, we show that the critical wind speed indeed hardly depends on the height, diameter, and elastic properties of trees.last_img read more
