Berekum Chelsea end Kotoko’s unbeaten run

first_imgBerekum Chelsea ended Asante Kotoko’s unbeaten run after defeating the league champions 2-0 in their week-12 Glo Premier League duel at the Golden City Park, Berekum.The victory which pushed the former champions to the apex of the league table was masterminded by former Kotoko striker, Eric Bekoe.The Porcupine Warriors hoped to return from Berekum with their 11-game unbeaten run intact, but the host had other ideas having profited from bad blood between Kotoko and Bekoe to sign the player earlier in the season.Bekoe, stroke first in the 22nd minute taking advantage of poor defending, with former Kotoko midfield dynamo, Jordan Opoku adding to the tally to put the hosts in cruise control.Kotoko returned from the break determined to overturn the scores, but Chelsea appeared resolute to send the former home empty handed.The defeat means Kotoko are five points behind Chelsea and fifth place on the log with three games to end the first round.last_img read more

Radenovic is big for Wildcats

Ivan Radenovic scored six of his career-high 37 points in the final two minutes of overtime to help Arizona survive after blowing a 20-point lead and hold on for an 85-80 victory over host Stanford on Saturday. Radenovic shot 12 for 18 from the field, made both his 3-pointers, all 11 of his free throws, had nine rebounds and seven assists. All without committing a foul or a turnover in 44 minutes. Kenny Brown’s 3-pointer with 6.1 seconds remaining capped a comeback from 20 points down for Stanford (18-11, 10-8 Pac-10). But the Wildcats (20-9, 11-7) scored the first four points of the extra session to regain the momentum. The Cardinal could never get the lead in overtime, with their best chance coming when Brook Lopez made only one of two foul shots with Stanford down by one with 1:53 to go. center_img Radenovic answered with a basket inside to put Arizona up 80-78. He then added four free throws to ice it. Arizona St. 42, California 41: Derek Glasser hit a three-pointer with 13.8 seconds left to give the visiting Sun Devils (8-21, 2-16) their first road win of the season with the victory over the Golden Bears (14-16, 6-12). No. 17 Oregon 70, Oregon St. 59: Bryce Taylor scored 22 and Aaron Brooks added 18 to lead the Ducks (23-7, 11-7) to the rout of the Beavers (11-20, 3-15). last_img read more

Printable Flexible CarbonNanotube Transistors

first_img Applications for these flexible electronics include electronic paper, RFID (radio frequency identification) tags to track goods and people, and “smart skins,” which are materials and coatings containing electronic circuitry that can indicate changes in temperature or pressure, such as on aircraft or other objects.Printing circuits onto plastic is not a new achievement. Researchers have created printed circuits at room temperature using various semi-conducting polymers as the carrier transport medium, and many, many research groups across the globe continue to work toward perfecting the process and product.“A problem with these polymers is that they have limited carrier mobility, meaning electrons travel through them fairly slowly. This limits the speed of the devices made from them to only a few kilohertz,” said UMass Lowell Professor Xuejun Lu, the study’s corresponding researcher, to computers, by comparison, have speeds from hundreds of megahertz to more than one gigahertz.As part of the printed-electronics effort, carbon nanotubes have been investigated as a medium for high-speed transistors, with very promising results. But one method of depositing the nanotubes onto the plastic, “growing” them with heat, requires very high temperatures, typically around 900°C, which is a major obstacle for fabricating electronic devices.Additionally, transistors made from single carbon nanotubes or low-density nanotube films, which are produced by depositing a small amount of a nanotube solution onto a substrate, can carry only a small amount of current. High-density films (more than than 1,000 nanotubes per square micrometer, or millionth of a meter) are better, but most are not of sufficient quality, containing carbon “soot” that covers the nanotubes’ sidewalls and hinders carrier flow.To help solve these issues, Brewer Science, Inc. developed an electronic-grade carbon-nanotube solution. The researchers deposited a tiny droplet of the solution onto a plastic transparency film at room temperature using a syringe, a method similar to ink-jet printing.“Our electronic-grade solutions contain ultrapure carbon nanotubes without using any surfactant. Our printed transistor’s carrier mobility is much higher than similar devices developed by other groups, it exhibits a speed of 312 megahertz, and can carry a large current,” said Dr. Xuliang Han, Senior Research Engineer at Brewer Science.

Reviving the languages

first_imgBol Bosh, a website about the diverse languages, literatures and folklore of Kashmir, curated by Asiya Zahoor was launched at Oxford Bookstore Connaught Place in the Capital. Author Namita Gokhale launched the website on 5 August followed by a presentation and discussion with Basharat Ali and Asiya Zahoor.Bol Bosh in Kashmiri refers to communication, in the most endearing way. It aims to focus on those languages and oral and folk literatures in particular that are lesser known. Though these literatures are aesthetically appealing, culturally rich and historically significant, they have a very less or no visibility. By bringing these on a digital platform Bol Bosh aims to make such narratives accessible to the wider world. Some of the languages that are being revived through Bol Bosh are Pashtu, Gojri, Pahari, Dogri, Kohistani, Sheikhagal, Poguli, Shina, Bhaderwahi, Ladhki and Burushaski.

Her persisting passion for education since childhood led her to volunteer for teaching various schools in adjacent villages of Baramulla in addition to teaching at a colleges. She has known education as a tool of empowerment. Her interest in language and literature drove her to Oxford University. Basharat Ali pursued his Bachelor’s Degree from Government College Baramulla, University of Kashmir. From his childhood he had the urge and desire to contribute to his society by being a change. Ali has dedicated himself selflessly to the development of the society.last_img read more
