Hoffenheim 2 Bayern Munich 0: Ancelotti’s men succumb to in-form Uth double Patric Ridge Last updated 2 years ago 02:26 10/9/2017 Getty Images Mark Uth was at the double as Bayern Munich slumped to a surprise 2-0 defeat to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich slumped to their first defeat of the season as Mark Uth’s clinical double claimed a surprise 2-0 Bundesliga victory for Hoffenheim.Carlo Ancelotti’s side looked leggy throughout Saturday’s encounter at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena, and Uth made sure that Hoffenheim – the last side to beat Bayern in the Bundesliga back in April – took full advantage.Starting up front in the absence of the injured Sandro Wagner, Uth capitalised on sloppy defending from Mats Hummels and Javi Martinez to put Hoffenheim ahead 27 minutes in, with Bayern having failed to test Oliver Baumann at the other end bar an early opportunity for Robert Lewandowski.

Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing And despite a positive start to the second half from Bayern, Uth doubled his tally and made it five goals in his last five games in all competitions with a precise finish at the culmination of a swift Hoffenheim counter-attack six minutes after the restart.The visitors pressed late on, but a late chance for Martinez – set-up by James Rodriguez on his Bayern debut – was all they could muster, with Hoffenheim holding firm to move level on points with current league leaders Borussia Dortmund.Bayern, meanwhile, must now switch their focus to the Champions League, with Anderlecht visiting the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.On his 400th Bayern appearance, Thomas Muller nearly turned provider with a pinpoint cross into Lewandowski, whose first-time effort clipped off the crossbar on its way over.Despite Bayern’s dominance, Hoffenheim kept the champions at arm’s length, and Julian Nagelsmann’s tactics paid off when quick thinking from Andrej Kramaric from a throw-in caught out Hummels.Uth reacted swiftly, stealing in unchallenged to drive into the area and plant a neat finish past Manuel Neuer at the near post.In search of an immediate response, Lewandowski tried his luck with a free-kick from range, but the Poland striker’s dipping shot inched wide of the left-hand upright.4 – Mark #Uth scored 4 of 8 Hoffenheim goals in all comps 2017-18. Pillar. #TSGFCB— OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) September 9, 2017Bayern’s determination to restore parity stretched their defence, though, with Neuer doing well to keep out Steven Zuber’s low drive prior to the interval, while Corentin Tolisso headed straight at Baumann.Kingsley Coman was the next to test Hoffenheim’s defence, drilling over from the edge of the hosts’ area after cutting inside from the left flank.But it was not to be for Bayern, who found themselves further behind when Uth side-footed home from 10 yards out having latched onto Zuber’s cut-back.Ancelotti was swift to make a change, bringing on Arjen Robben, though it was the introduction of Bayern’s next substitute – James – which almost paid dividends late on.Colombia star James whipped in a delightful free-kick that Martinez met, but, with the aid of the crossbar, Baumann managed to keep it out as Hoffenheim held firm for a well-deserved victory. Key Opta stats: – Thomas Muller made his 400th appearance in competitive games for Bayern Munich – since the club’s promotion to the top flight in 1965, only 13 players appeared in more games.- Mark Uth became the first player to score a brace for Hoffenheim against Bayern.- On matchday three, this is the earliest Bayern loss in a Bundesliga season since 2011-12. Back then they had lost on matchday one to Borussia Monchengladbach.- Hoffenheim have kept clean sheets in their last four league home games – a new record for the team. read more

Indian activists wear facemasks to protect them from pollution during a mask distribution drive at the roadside in New Delhi on Thursday. AFPSchools closed across large swathes of north India on Thursday as a hazardous fog of toxic pollution cloaked the region for a third day, with growing calls for urgent government action to tackle what doctors are calling a public health emergency.Punjab’s government said it was closing all 25,000 schools in the state for the rest of the week due to the acrid air blanketing north India and parts of neighbouring Pakistan.The decision came a day after Delhi authorities ordered all 6,000 schools in the capital to shut until Sunday.Low winds and the annual post-harvest burning of crop stubble in Punjab and neighbouring areas have caused the levels of dangerous pollutants in the air to spike to many times the levels considered safe.Air quality typically worsens before the onset of winter as cooler air traps pollutants near the ground and prevents them from dispersing into the atmosphere, a phenomenon known as inversion.Figures on the US embassy website showed levels of PM2.5 — the smallest particulates that cause most damage to health — spiked at over 1,000 on Wednesday afternoon in Delhi, though by Thursday they had fallen to 590.The World Health Organization’s guidelines say 25 is the maximum level of PM2.5 anyone can safely be exposed to over a 24-hour period.Doctors say the microscopic particles can penetrate deep into the lungs, increasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes.”Delhi once again has become a veritable gas chamber with denizens finding it difficult to breathe,” The Times of India said Thursday, joining growing calls for government action to curb the chronic pollution, which the Indian Medical Association this week termed a public health emergency.”Air pollution during winter months has become a catastrophe for large parts of north India,” the country’s most read English-language newspaper said in an editorial blaming “political apathy”.”It’s high time the question is asked: why can’t authorities enjoying jurisdiction over the national capital of an aspiring great power… come up with concrete measures to tackle the world’s worst air pollution.”As pressure mounted on the government, authorities in Delhi ordered a ban on all construction work and barred lorries from entering the city.Around 50,000 mostly diesel-fuelled lorries pass through India’s capital every night and they are a major contributor to the pollution plaguing the city.- Struggling to respond -It is the second year running that Delhi — now the world’s most polluted capital with air quality worse than Beijing — has faced such high levels of PM2.5.Media reports said the thick smog had also led to a series of road accidents in north India.Eight students were killed late Wednesday when a truck ploughed into them as they waited for a bus on a roadside in Punjab.Since 2014, when WHO figures showed the extent of the crisis, authorities in Delhi have closed power plants temporarily and experimented with taking some cars off the road.But the temporary measures have had little effect.Under pressure to respond, Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday sought to blame stubble burning by farmers in neighbouring states.”We we will continue facing this every year until the neighbouring state governments resolve the issue of crop burning,” he told reporters in Delhi.The practice of burning crop stubble remains commonplace in north India despite an official ban.Kejriwal said his government would decide in the next day or two whether to reintroduce restrictions on driving cars in the city.

Through a smoldering brush fire, past wind-shearing road trains, across the Australian continent, the University of Michigan’s Quantum was the first American car to finish the World Solar Challenge. The Solar Car team placed third overall in the international competition. This is the second victory in a row for Team Tokai; they took home the prize the last time the race was run two years ago. Initially the race was held every three years, but in 1999, it was decided that two years would be better. Over the history of the race, fourteen races have been conducted and Japanese teams have won six, including this year. Teams from the Netherlands have also had some success, wining four. A team from the United States won the first race, but has not been able to repeat that success since.This year the race was particularly emotional for the Japanese team as they dedicated their race to the reconstruction efforts still going on in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami that struck the country last March. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Interview with driver/pilot of Tokai Challenger 2 of Tokai University of Japan at Victoria Square in Adelaide, Australia on Oct. 20, 2011. And while the race has been running since last Sunday (October 16), the contestants were obviously only able to run at night. The actual driving time for the winning car was 32 hours and 45 minutes. Over the course of the race, the cars were stopped at seven checkpoints to allow the teams to see how things were going with the driver and the car, to check weather, etc. Each team was only allowed to perform very routine maintenance such as clearing debris that had accumulated and inflating tires. More information: www.worldsolarchallenge.org/ Team Tokai’s car, sponsored by Panasonic, is basically a tricycle with a high-end carbon frame which is covered with HIT solar panels supplied by Panasonic. Inside, in addition to the driver, is an electric motor and 8650-type high-capacity lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. At its fastest, the car can travel 160 km/h, though for the race it averaged 91.54 kilometers per hour.

The team from the University of Michigan came in third.The race, which was started in 1987 as a means of promoting solar-powered technology had 37 entrants this year, and put drivers through a variety of challenges including wild animals, high temperatures, road trains (trucks with multiple trailers), high winds and a bushfire that put a stop to the race at one point. Team Philippines ran into a very serious problem on Wednesday when its battery exploded after overheating. The battery was replaced and the team forged ahead, showing just how much fortitude the contestants must possess.

Posted by Share << Previous PostNext Post >> Billy Bishop Airport introduces enhanced screenings for ferry passengers Tuesday, March 13, 2018 TORONTO — Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) has implemented new enhanced security procedures that may require passengers to go through random screenings.Effective immediately, the new procedures were put in place by Transport Canada under the Domestic Ferry Security Regulations. According to the airport, this may result in random baggage/belongings checks of some passengers for the presence of explosives.“The random screening will be completed by swabbing the exterior of the baggage and/or belongings and analyzing the swab taken with a portable detection device,” said the airport on its website. “Passengers may expect to be approached by Billy Bishop Airport Security staff to participate in the screening process prior to boarding the ferry.”Passengers can also access the airport via the pedestrian tunnel that connects the facility to the mainland, however the airport has yet to confirm whether the security screenings will be applicable to this access point as well.More news: Honolulu authorities investigate arsons at 3 Waikiki hotels; no injuries reportedThe last time YTZ updated its security measures was in July 2017 when it was authorized by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) to conduct a secondary search and/or additional screening of electronics the size of a cell phone or larger.
