The Syracuse head coach was irate following a 15-yard illegal use of hands penalty on his team and his tirade cost SU another 15 yards.The two penalties moved Clemson from its own 21-yard line to the Orange’s 49 midway through the third quarter on Saturday against Clemson. At the time, Syracuse trailed by just seven to the nation’s top team.Throughout the Orange’s (3-7, 1-5 Atlantic Coast) current seven-game losing streak Shafer has stressed that his team continue to “control the controllables,” but that’s something he didn’t do against Clemson.When asked Tuesday on his weekly teleconference about the challenge of contradicting himself, Shafer said, “Good point. I made a mistake on that play. Nothing they could learn from.”Shafer said he didn’t apologize to his team for the slipup.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Just like I don’t expect an apology from my players when they make a mistake,” Shafer said. “We own it and move forward.”Discussions with Mark CoyleAt his introductory press conference in June, newly hired Director of Athletics Mark Coyle said he would take this year to evaluate Syracuse’s football program. Mired in a seven-game losing streak, its longest since 2005, questions about Shafer’s job security are swirling.Shafer, who has one year left on his contract, was asked on Tuesday if he’s had any discussions with Coyle about his job.“If I did, that would be between Mark and I,” Shafer said.He was then asked if he would prefer a resolution before the season ends.“I think for me, it’s just a matter of focusing on things that are out in front of us right now and all the other things that are behind closed doors are just that, behind closed doors between me, my staff and anybody in the administration.Amir Ealey and Qaadir Sheppard suspensionsAfter Saturday’s game, Syracuse announced that freshmen defensive ends Amir Ealey and Qaadir Sheppard were suspended indefinitely for violating team policy. Tuesday was the first time Shafer addressed the media since the announcement of the suspension, but when asked about their availability, he reiterated what was already announced.Said Shafer: “Both young men are suspended indefinitely for violating team policy.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgFormer Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah has named the 2006 World Cup squad as his best ever Black Stars team.Led by head coach Ratomir Dujkovic the 2006 squad represented Ghana at its debut World Cup and managed to exceed expectations.Placed in Group E which also had Italy,Czech Republic and the United States of America the Black Stars of recovered from a bumpy 2 – 0 defeat in their opening game against Italy to beat Czech Republic by 2 goals to nil before rounding it off with a hard fought 2 – 1 win over the United States.Recounting the experience Appiah, praised the depth in quality of the squad.“The 2006 squad was something else because if you look at our bench the players on there were equally as good as the starters.“Take a guy like Haminu Dramani he didn’t start the first and second game but the third match against the United States we saw his performance.“All though he was on the bench you could tell that he was ready when given the opportunity.“You could also see guys like Derek Boateng who was equally a good as myself and Michael Essien.“And then at the back we had a guy like Shilla Illiasu who came in for Osei Kuffour and did really well.“It was really an all round team,” he revealed.Appiah himself is currently studying to acquire his coaching badges as he aims to become a full time coachlast_img read more

From NFL.com: “His decision making was very concerning this past season. He forced too many balls into crowds and didn’t ever give up on a play — to a fault.”Love, who played at Liberty High School in Bakersfield, Calif., also played basketball in high school. He graduated from Utah State in the fall of 2019 with a degree in human movement science. Jordan Love is one of those NFL Draft quarterback prospects whose outlook depends on who you ask. A 6-4, 224-pounder with a strong arm, the 21-year-old from Utah State has obvious physical skills, but his shaky performance in his final college season makes many believe he is a boom-or-bust player in the NFL.For example, Sporting News ranked Love at No. 50 on our big board of the top 100 players in the 2020 NFL Draft. NFL.com ranked him much higher, at No. 23 overall. This displays the difficult read that is evaluating Love’s potential as a pro passer. MORE 2020 NFL DRAFT:SN’s draft hub | Top 100 players in the classLove has a strong arm and a quick, potent release, physical passing tools that will give him a chance to succeed in the NFL. Yet he was included on our list of 2020 NFL Draft bust candidates in part because he went from throwing six interceptions as a sophomore to throwing 17 interceptions in his final college season as a junior — all while his passing touchdown total dropped from 32 to 20.To be fair to Love, that dip in production came after coaching and scheme changes at Utah State. And any quarterback who is selected relatively high should be considered a risky NFL Draft pick.Below is all you need to know about Love, including his college highlights and stats, his Combine results and a couple scouting reports.Jordan Love highlightsLove’s college highlights put on display his strong arm and his ability to make throws from a variety of angles depending on the situation.

Staff turnover and new starters across the offense are partly to blame for his regression, but self-made flaws in process were also concerns. Love’s accuracy took a step back, and his delayed reaction from “see it” to “throw it” when making reads is troubling. He has the arm to stick throws into tight windows but needs better eye discipline and anticipation to keep windows open. His size, mobility and arm talent combined with his 2018 flashes could be a winning hand that leads a team into the future or a siren’s song of erratic play and unfulfilled potential.”last_img read more

first_img“The ultrasensitivity … is really what makes the difference,” says Peter Fratzl, a materials scientist at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, who was not involved with the study.The sensor has a wide range of potential applications, from selective speech recognition to health monitoring, Choi says. When the researchers attached the sensor to a violin playing the wedding tune “Salut d’Amour” by British composer Edward Elgar, for example, the resistance of the device varied in sync with air vibration produced by the instrument, correctly recording every note of the song. When the researchers attached the sensor to 10 people’s necks and asked them to say simple commands such as “go” and “jump,” the device recorded the sounds more accurately than a commercial microphone when there’s ambient noise. The sensor can also detect wrist pulses, opening up the possibility for miniature Fitbits that can monitor vital signs 24/7.In addition, the researchers integrated the sensor into a microfluidic system made of micrometer-sized channels containing nanoliters of liquids. Medical researchers could potentially use such devices to integrate multiple medical tests on a single “lab on a chip.” The sensor can detect the pressure difference inside and outside a microfluidic channel, which could allow medical researchers to monitor how fast drugs flow in the tubes.“There are so many vibrations we’d like to monitor,” Fratzl says. But he says a truly practical sensor would need to discriminate between vibration signals while ignoring unwanted noise—a skill that spiders are very good at. Choi says his team plans to address that by changing the density of cracks formed in the platinum films to customize the device’s sensitivity for different applications. A sensor designed for pulse monitoring, for example, doesn’t need to be as sensitive as a device for speech recognition.The team also plans to replace platinum with cheaper conductors, such as copper and aluminum, to shrink the cost of the sensor for commercialization. Choi says he hopes to produce a practical device within 5 years. Email The wandering spider boasts one of the world’s most sensitive vibration detectors: It can pick up the slightest rustling of a leaf from several meters away. Now, scientists have developed similar sensors that can detect simple human speech. The technology could lead to wearable electronics for speech recognition, health monitoring, and more.The male wandering spider (Cupiennius salei) courts prospective mates by scratching leaves with its mouth and abdomen, which produce minute vibrations. A female spider can pick up the signal with parallel slits on its legs, known as the lyriform organ, which change shape under tiny forces.Inspired by the spider’s physiology, engineer Mansoo Choi of Seoul National University and colleagues designed a flexible ultrasensitive motion sensor that’s smaller than a fingernail. The sensor consists of a polymer sheet coated with a thin platinum film. Nanoscale cracks resembling the spider’s slit organs break up the metal film into tiny tiles. When the platinum film is completely flat, the cracks are closed and the edges are in contact, allowing electrical currents to run through the entire film. But any tiny stretching of the film widens the cracks significantly. The wider the cracks are, the less edges are in contact, blocking more electrons from passing through the film. By measuring the changes in the platinum film’s resistance, the researchers can detect minute motions, such as vibrations resembling a ladybug flapping its wings, they report online today in Nature.
