first_img18-year-old striker Josh Sargent has named Wayne Rooney as an idol of his and reflected on the pressure of being one of the USA’s beacons of hope for the future.After trails with PSV Eindhoven and Schalke 04, Sargent was snapped up by Werder Breman in January 2018 and debuted for the first-team last month as a 76th-minute substitute against Fortuna Dusseldorf.In that Bundesliga game, Sargent broke a club record by scoring the fastest goal for a debutant with his first touch of the ball just two minutes after coming on.The teenage star has since gone on to make another four appearances for Bremen and scored again at RB Leipzig on December 22.Sargent’s rapid progress and playing style have drawn comparisons with England and Manchester United legend Rooney, who himself starred as a fresh-faced teenager for Everton in the Premier League.“I liked Wayne Rooney a lot. I liked his style of play and how powerful he was on the ball,” Sargent told the club website. “I looked up to him.”Hopes are high in the US over their prospects for the 2022 and 2026 World Cups with Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie, Haji Wright and Tyler Adams all starring in the Bundesliga right now.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Despite the growing weight of expectation on him though back at home, Sargent isn’t feeling the pressure to deliver.“I wouldn’t say that I feel the pressure,” said Sargent.“People can have their opinions, whether they see me as the next big talent or just an average player. I don’t really enjoy hearing other people’s views. I’m focusing purely on my own expectations, and how good I should be performing.“Besides, the support recently has been phenomenal. Of course, I’ve been getting a lot from my family, but also a lot of people back home are pleased for me, and are tweeting words of encouragement, for example, and congratulating me. I can feel their love.”The USA international does, however, aim to continue improving and gave some insight into the demands he places on himself.“I’m very critical, as well as very competitive and performance-orientated, so I don’t enjoy it when I can’t do something,” said Sargent.“If I notice that I’ve done something wrong or I can’t do something, I try to make amends as soon as possible.”last_img read more

first_imgRupee gained in early trade on Friday by 19 paise, as it opened at 59.14 per dollar compared to previous day’s closing value at 59.33-a-dollar.European Central Bank’s meeting on 5 June has brought about a positive response in rupee and stocks and it is likely to later announce policy easing measures to tackle the pitfalls of disinflations.Pramit Brahmbhatt of Veracity told moneycontrol to expect the rupee in a range of 59-60 per dollar.”The stimulus from ECB to the banks has spread positive sentiment globally. Taking cues from this, we expect local equities to trade strong resulting in appreciation of rupee,” Brahmbhatt pointed out.But, at 10:00 am, the rupee declined to 59.1950 from 59.14, while USD-HKD and USD-SGD surged by 0.00 percent and +0.005 percent respectively.Hence, among 13 Asia-Pacific Currencies, only two appeared to be surging.The Sensex and Nifty surged at 25,232.48 and 7,522.60 at 10:00 am today and gainers at early trade in BSE were ONGC, DLF, GAIL, BPCL and Reliance. However, Infosys, TCS, Hindalco and HCL Technologies lost out.On 5 June, Thursday, the 30-share BSE index created history by crossing the 25,000-mark for the first time; and the 50-share NSE index closed at 7,474.10. Sensex hit the day’s high of 25,044.06, and settled at a closing high of 25,019.51 points. Meanwhile, Nifty stretched at 7,474.10 breaching previous record closing high of 7,415.85 on Tuesday.The market figure was dominated due to shares of metal, oil and gas, power, PSU’s, FMCG and IT.

first_imgPV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal would look to become the first Indian winners of Asian championships since 1965IANSMost people know about the Indian badminton players who have won the All England Championships. They are also likely to remember Indian badminton medallists in World Championships and Olympics. But it would be a very tough question to ask someone, who was the last and only Indian to win the Badminton Asia Championships?For the answer, you would have to go to an era even before that of Prakash Padukone. It was in 1965 that Dinesh Khanna became the Asian Champion by triumphing in this event. Since then, many great badminton players have come and gone but a gold medal in this prestigious, if sometimes overshadowed the event, remains elusive for India.Will 2019 be different?As the 2019 edition kicks off on April 23, can we expect the drought to be broken this time? Last year, HS Prannoy and Saina Nehwal claimed Bronze in their respective categories. This year, both Saina and PV Sindhu will be competing, not just to end India’s 54-year long wait but also to regain some form.Sindhu is enduring a terrible year and after some disappointing results, have faced questions about her focus and dedication to the game. Saina started the year on a good note by winning Indonesia Masters – albeit with a walkover in the final against Carolina Marin – and retaining her Nationals crown. But she too has subsequently not produced the kind of results her fans would have hoped for.Going by present form, the chances are not bright for India. But there is some hope. Defending champion and the best player in women’s singles circuit right now, Tai Tzu Ying, has withdrawn from the event. The biggest obstacle in the Indian ladies’ way to the title is out. But there still remain other formidable foes. Tai Tzu Ying’s absence from the tournament would boost the chances of Indian ladiesRobertus Pudyanto/Getty ImagesBiggest threatsChen Yufei, the fastest rising Chinese player, who defeated Tai Tzu Ying in the finals of All England Championships earlier this year, is in the fray. So are the two Japanese girls constantly featuring in the last-four of big events – Nozomi Okuhara and Akane Yamaguchi. They would be joined by Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon – always a threat – and China’s other prominent player HE Bingjiao.Unfortunately for Sindhu, if she gets through the initial rounds, the quarterfinals could see her facing Sung Ji Hyun of South Korea. The latter hasn’t won a big title in a long time but was responsible for knocking out Sindhu in the 1st round of All England Open and the 2nd round of Malaysian Open. Saina would face her first big challenge in the quarterfinals also, in the form of Yamaguchi, a consistent performer.So, the road is tough for the two Indian badminton queens. But let us remember that in the past, Sindhu has shown the ability to raise her performance dramatically in big events. Though she only has a bronze in Asian Championships so far, this could be the tournament where her fortunes turn around. As for Saina, her form is better than what her results indicate. A little more luck and effort could see her earning another medal, to go along with three bronzes, at this prestigious event.Men’s singlesIn the men’s category, there are just two representatives of India – Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma. With a field containing the likes of Kento Momota, Shi Yuqi and Chen Long, it is going to be extremely hard for either to get to semis. Prospects for India don’t look good. But Sindhu’s mercurial form and Saina’s latent quality might just bring joy to Indian fans.last_img read more

first_img Citation: Voice-based phone recharging (2011, May 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-05-voice-based-recharging.html Sang-Woo Kim, a researcher at the Institute of Nanotechnology at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul thinks that it just might be. He is working in a field known as energy scavenging in which power is made by the day-to-day life of humans. Other forms of scavenged energy include California’s current proposal to grab vibrational energy from cars driving on the highways as a source of power. These types of innovation have the possibility to give us renewable energy sources that do not require putting up solar panels or wind turbines in areas where this type of construction may not always be possible. You may be wondering how this sound-based technology would work. Well, the proposed technology would convert sound into the kind of energy that a phone can use by pairing the electrodes with strands of zinc oxide. When the noise comes at the phone, a pad designed to absorb the noise would capture it, and vibrate the phone (or other device in question), which would make the zinc oxide fibers expand and contract. It is this expanding and contracting that actually generates the power for the battery. A current prototype system was able to convert 100 decibels of sound, the equivalent of city traffic, into 50 millivolts of power. This document is subject to copyright.
