WarriorsHQ: How Kevin Durant fits into Warriors’ ‘spread the wealth’ offense

first_imgWhen the Warriors are at their best is when they don’t play to a script, Golden State beat writer Mark Medina told Dieter Kurtenbach on this week’s episode of the WarriorsHQ podcast.“It’s not even just, OK, take what the defense gives you, find the open man. I think the Warriors are most dangerous when they’re not running set plays. Steve Kerr, for the most part, because of how talented his guys are, wants them to just be able to react and do their thing and that’s where it becomes the …last_img read more

Mars Methane May Be Geological, Not Biological

first_imgJust when the ESA Mars Express spacecraft was collecting data on methane emissions on Mars, leading some to speculate it might be a biomarker, Science Now reported new findings that indicate methane can form naturally in Earth’s mantle by heating water, iron oxide and calcite under pressure (see also Physics Web).     This demonstrates that “hydrocarbons could be produced without the byproducts of life,” and that “The methane recently detected on Mars … may not indicate life, because it could have been produced from simple elements.”  It also indicates there could be vast yet currently inaccessible reservoirs of natural gas in Earth’s mantle. This means also that future missions such as the Space Interferometry Mission and Terrestrial Planet Finder may not be able to assume that the detection of methane is an indicator of the presence of life on a distant planet.  Nor could Cassini scientists assume that methane at Titan was a precursor to biology.(Visited 18 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Lonely Planet Launches Augmented Reality Apps

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement marshall kirkpatrick Popular travel book publisher Lonely Planet has begun selling Augmented Reality apps for 10 US cities for $5 each in the Android Marketplace. The apps were built in conjunction with Mobilizy, the company behind user generated content AR app Wikitude.In addition to offering Lonely Planet content overlayed on top of locations you view through your phone’s camera view, you can also plan itineraries and get step by step directions from the app. Augmented Reality is a technology in a formative stage but support from the Lonely Planet brand is a big, if unsurprising, step. Will consumers go for it? GoMoNews is skeptical, pointing out that AR technology is still clumsy and Lonely Planet’s offering is very limited so far. National Geographic’s travel blog voices no such concerns.Travel is the most logical application of consumer-focused Augmented Reality, but we expect a large number of consumer and marketing companies to explore this new paradigm of layering data on top of the viewed world.Some of the most interesting applications of Augmented Reality are outside the consumer market; AR could prove very useful for medical procedures or mechanical repair, for example. The technology remains limited, though, by the inability of most applications to process live video of what they are actually looking at, instead of merely offering up data based on what’s believed to be in a given GPS position.

Carvajal rues missed chances in Real Madrids 22 draw

first_imgReal Madrid defender Dani Carvajal believes they should have added a third goal before Santi Cazorla’s equaliser rescued a point for VillarrealThe European champions lacked sharpness up front in their first game of 2019 at Villarreal with 19-year-old Samuel Chukwueze proving to a threat for the hosts right from the start.The Nigerian would go on to set-up Cazorla’s opener and provided Marcelo with a lot of trouble down the wing with Villarreal seemingly the stronger of the two sides on Thursday.However, two headed goals from Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema caught out Villarreal keeper Sergio Asenjo to hand Real a 2-1 lead.But Lucas Vazquez was unable to take advantage of a golden opportunity when he was denied by Asenjo in the second half, despite being clean through on goal.Former Arsenal playmaker Cazorla then punished Real for failing to take their opportunities by grabbing an 82nd-minute equaliser to settle things at 2-2.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We had some real chances to finish the game and make it 1-3, but in the end, we drew and dropped two points,” said Carvajal on the club website.“We needed those three points to close the gaps on the leader. Now we need to keep working hard and rack up some points. This is not an easy place to come play.“We’re disappointed because we were ahead for practically the whole match and not winning really stings.”“We knew that they would have to push forward and leave the defence open. Before finishing with a draw, we had two massive chances to kill it off, we did not finish and they nicked a goal at the end.”Los Blancos, who remain fourth in La Liga, will go up against Real Sociedad this weekend.last_img read more
