Sarri wants Kante to stay near Jorginho

first_imgThe Chelsea manager is under fire for his tactics used against Tottenham Hotspur that ended up costing him the matchChelsea lost 3-1 against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in the English Premier League.And for manager Maurizio Sarri, this means he has to put N’Golo Kante closer to Jorginho in order to have a more solid midfield.“I want to play a central midfielder who is a very technical player, so for me, the central midfielder is Jorginho or [Cesc] Fabregas. I don’t want Kante in this position,” he told Sky Sports.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“Kante, in the last match, wanted to solve the match after the first 15 minutes, but in the wrong way. He lost the position, he attacked too much.”“This one is not one of the best characteristics of Kante, but it was only in reaction to the difficulties,” he added.“Maybe it’s only a question of time, but Kante has to stay near to Jorginho, especially when the ball is on the other side. When the ball is on the left he has to stay very close to Jorginho.”last_img read more

Memories on canvas

first_imgDescribing the exhibition as ‘An artistic exploration of mundane’, Exhibit 320 brings together seven artistes for Delineating Memories that kicked off last Friday (18 July). The exhibition will be on till 5 August. Exhibit 32O showcases artistes that are placed within complex frameworks of time, place, society, history, art and culture, entering into a continuous dialogue to demystify these systems they inhabit. They travel  through time, switch roles and perspectives, and delineate their discoveries  like a map from memory.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Simultaneously indulging into insightful and retrospective journeys to learn  and comprehend, give way to endless curiosity and complexity of thought. This is reflected in the play of material, artifacts, deconstruction of concepts  and creation of myriad forms. These maps range from representations of vernacular visual culture, narrative personal histories, exploration of  physical spaces, to poetic dialogues. This exhibition underlines an almost meditative practice employed by each artiste in order to discern the value of personal experiences, visual culture and physical spaces. Participating artistes are – Simrin Mehra Agarwal (India), Gazi Nafis Ahmed (Bangaldesh), Noorali Chagani (Pakistan), Simeen Farhat (Pakistan), Sharmishta Kar (India), Martand Khosla (India) and M Pravat (India).WHEN: On till 5 August, 10:30 am – 6:30 pm (Sunday closed)WHERE: Exhibit 320, F-320, Lado Sarailast_img read more

Take a graphical journey of erstwhile PM Indira

first_img‘Indira,’ a part-prose fiction and part-graphic biography of India’s first and only woman Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, was launched by Member of Parliament, Jairam Ramesh in the Capital on Tuesday. The book has been written by Devapriya Roy and illustrated by Priya Kuriyan.Devapriya Roy’s compulsive storytelling and Priya Kuriyan’s fine drawings weave a seamless tale of the formative years of the erstwhile Prime Minister through a combination of textual and comic narratives. In a mixture of fiction and reality, a young Indira Thapa – who is named after Indira Gandhi – discovers the legacy of India’s first and only woman prime minister, while trying to finish an unusual assignment given by her favourite teacher. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe book launch witnessed a riveting conversation between MP Jairam Ramesh, Vishwajyoti Ghosh (author of Delhi Calm) and the authors of the book, who discussed the journey of documenting one of India’s most fascinating political figure and many anecdotes from her life. On the occasion, Jairam Ramesh said, “In the past, I had spent a good amount of time researching about Indira Gandhi and in the process, I discovered many facets about her personality that we are not aware of. Her love for nature is one of them. In fact, she was a patron of the institution and laws on the environment that we have today. She was not just a great politician but also an intellectual.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveTalking about the book, author Devapriya Roy said, “The book is a manifestation of in-depth research, which included digging deep into material like Indira Gandhi’s biographies and letters exchanged between her and Jawaharlal Nehru. We realized that while it was difficult to condense her fascinating life into one book, we ensured that the book captures important nuances from her life, such that it effectively brings out the very essence of Indira Gandhi in a manner that the younger generation reads and appreciates.” Illustrator Priya Kuriyan, who made the book come alive through her fine drawings, said, “While researching and travelling for the book we discovered that everything in her life was carefully selected and I kept those little details of her life in my mind while illustrating for the book”.’Indira’ has been published by Westland under their new literary imprint – Context. The book is available on Amazon for purchase.last_img read more

Your Internet Signal Is Going To Be Transmitted Through Light

first_imgNovember 30, 2015 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Imagine a world where your Internet connection comes from a light source. And in that world, your Internet connection is as much as 100 times faster than current wi-fi data transmission.That future isn’t imaginary. It’s coming.  Tartu, Estonia-based startup Velmenni has unveiled the prototype for an LED light bulb called Jugnu which is capable of transmitting a data signal. The startup is currently working to build an Android app to capture the data sent through light, according to the company website.Another startup working in the space, ByteLight, is using the power of LED light bulbs to transmit data combined with location sensor technology to track the location of shoppers in retail stores. If a store knows exactly what you are looking at when you are in a store, it can push coupons and content to your smartphone relevant to what you are looking at in real time.  Related: Google Just Got a Patent for Adding Holograms to a Google-Glass-Type HeadsetWhile li-fi, or “visible light communication,” is still largely the purview of university researchers and a small selection of high-tech, futuristic startups, the industry is expected to grow significantly over the next five years. Currently a $327.8 million industry, the visible light communication market is expected to be worth more than $8.5 billion by 2020, according to an estimate from the Indian market-research firm Markets and Markets.Li-fi may sound like wild, mind-boggling, futuristic technology, but it also has the potential to solve very real, everyday problems.As more and more people all over the globe come online, the radio waves that currently transmit data are becoming overwhelmed. When radio waves become overloaded, data transmission becomes slow. Painfully slow. Have you ever tried to get online at an airport?Not only are we bringing more and more people in the world online, but people who are already online are demanding ever more data transmission. Consumers expect to be able to watch videos on their mobile devices. And the Internet of Things movement is embedding wireless connectivity to devices and gadgets that haven’t previously used Internet, like your refrigerator, car and coffee pot.Related: The Future of the Internet of Things Will Be ‘Notification Hell’ Before It Gets BetterThere are exponentially more sources of light than there are radio waves, and therefore, there is potential for exponentially more data to be transferred through li-fi than with the wi-fi we are currently using.“We have 1.4 million expensively deployed, inefficient radio-cellular base stations. And multiply that by 10,000, then you end up at 14 billion. Fourteen billion is the number of light bulbs installed already,” says Harald Haas, a professor of Mobile Communications at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, who is credited with inventing the idea of li-fi. His TED talk introducing the technology from 2011 has received more than 2 million views.In addition to providing greater access to data connectivity, li-fi is more secure than radio connectivity, says Haas. Light waves do not transmit through walls. Therefore, if sensitive data is transmitted via li-fi, it will not travel beyond the room where the light radiates.Haas serves as the Chief Scientific Officer at the United Kingdom-based startup PureLifi, where he is overseeing the development of li-fi data transmission products.  For parts of the world where the infrastructure to support LED light bulbs does not exist, Haas has just in September unveiled technology that would allow the transmission of data through solar-powered energy cells.To be sure, the solar cells that transmit data Haas demoed were early-stage prototypes. But he also says he does expect to be able to bring these technologies to market in the next two to three years.“We hope we will be able to contribute to closing the digital divide, and also contribute to connecting all these billions of devices to the Internet. And all of this without causing a massive explosion of energy consumption — because of the solar cells, quite the opposite,” says Haas.Related: For the First Time Ever, NASA Astronauts Eat Vegetables Grown in Spacecenter_img Register Now » 4 min readlast_img read more
