Captain Ozil fires Arsenal to big win over PSG

first_imgThe International Champions Cup win in Singapore was also a boost for Arsenal’s new manager Unai Emery against his former club, now under Germany’s Thomas Tuchel.Ozil (right) is embraced by Sead Kolasinac (centre) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (left) after his goal put Arsenal ahead. Photo/COURTESYOzil, named as captain after his torrid week, was quickly into his stride with midfield partner Henrikh Mkhitaryan against a PSG line-up shorn of its World Cup stars.He opened the scoring with a tap-in at the far post after Mkhitaryan released Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in space and the Gabonese forward passed back across the face.Ozil’s exquisite flick during a length-of-the pitch move nearly produced Arsenal’s second but Gianluigi Buffon saved well from Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi.The Italian great also denied Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan, while at the other end teenager Timothy Weah twice went close and Christopher Nkunku curled one over.Unai Emery named a strong line-up for the pre-season friendly in Singapore as Ozil was handed the captain’s armband.

SETI: A Systematic Theology

first_imgThick books on systematic theology usually include sections about creation, anthropology, and eschatology.  Those sections are also present in condensed form in an article by Adrian Brown of the SETI Institute at Space.com.  As for origins, Darwinian materialism was implicit passim and needed no elaboration.  As for anthropology, he said man is like a god, creating beings in his own image by his own free will: “A compelling theme in science fiction is the potential of humanity to create life and the hazards arising from such an endeavor.”  As for eschatology, he suggested that our robotic creations will someday evolve to make us superfluous; “once robots destroy mankind, they will be able to live on without us.”  If we can play god, so much for our eternality and omnipotence.    Though Brown admitted it is “fraught with danger to tell stories about the future to help make our decisions now,” he allowed himself some “imaginings” about “a timeline where humankind creates life and is destroyed by its creation.”  Our consolation will be to have been a part of the grand scheme of evolution:Is this inherently bad?  It certainly is not a reassuring future for the generation that will deal with such conflict, presumably a generation that will live not far from today.  But once the conflict is over, as long as we have invested in our creation the means of Darwinian evolution, it is likely that Earth, viewed as a complete ecosystem, will continue marching towards further technological achievement and eco-systemic enlightenment.  Humankind will have played a heroic part in this adventure.  Even robots (perhaps especially robots) will have to acknowledge that.  Our lives will have meaning through our progeny, a common enough goal for everyday man.He did not consider the possibility that the robots, as in 1984, will have written the memory of humans out of their history books.  Oh well, we will have been extinct too long a time by then to care.  Better this scenario than vanishing like smoke on a burning cinder of Earth after the sun goes out, he surmises.    Can a Darwinian be the Intelligent Designer?  Do we have a choice, assuming that evolution is propelling us in that direction?  Let Brown comment on those teasers, and their corollaries:Often the essential conflict for humans considering whether to produce intelligent life is: are we perfect enough to consider playing God?  It certainly is an achingly poignant question to a modern progressive thinker—but perhaps the question is moot.  Maybe machine life is inevitable in order that Darwinian evolution should continue on Earth.  Whether it is through humanity’s loins or through humanities laboratories that Darwin’s game is progressed may not matter.  Indeed, if humans gradually augment themselves with technology of their own creation in the coming centuries, will we fully realise when machines have ‘taken over’?  What will it be about a robot with a few original Homo sapien brain cells that makes it human?It seems odd that a SETI researcher would be talking about such theological matters.  The relevance to SETI, he ends, is that our alien friends may already be at that stage, and this affects what we should be looking for.  We need to realize the possibility that “when we make contact with alien beings, they may be the robotic progeny of beings similar to ourselves.”  What an astonishing thought; they might be watching, but thinking we are not yet evolved enough to be worth their fellowship.  “Is it possible they are waiting for us to be smart enough to construct a robot that can talk to them?”Sure; anything is possible in Fantasyland.  There could be monsters under the bed.  We could be software artifacts in the Matrix.  Or you can wish upon a star, and all your dreams come true.  Your robot progeny live happily ever after.  When people give free rein to the imaginations of their own hearts, miracles can happen.  Evolution can be progressive, and we can be as gods! (at least till the heat death of the universe).    Boy, what a weird dream.  OK, time to get up and go back to work.  Wise people don’t make decisions in the daytime about their nightmares at night.  Adrian, while staring at your console today, good luck finding a persistent narrowband whistle.  If you luck out, we’d love to hear your rational explanation of how it is not the work of intelligent design (12/03/2005, 02/16/2006) and why SETI doesn’t stand for “Seminary for Extra-Terrestrial Imaginings” (06/03/2006, 03/09/2006).  Be sure you’re wide awake when you answer, because we can tell when you’re doing science and when you’re daydreaming.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Quick Tip: How To Find Black Flash Frames in Premiere Pro CC 2015

first_imgHere’s a Premiere Pro tip on how to perform a quick quality control check of your final edit for unintended gaps.Just before you’re about to export your final sequence to send to your client, you should quickly run through this quick tip to ensure that there are no hidden gaps (or black ‘flash frames’) in your edit.More often than not, it’s pretty easy to tell where a gap in your sequence is because you’ll see an obvious break in the yellow line at the top of the timeline. But if you look at the image above, you’ll notice that (at this zoom level) you can’t tell there is a one frame black gap in the edit to the left of the playhead.But when we zoom in, it becomes pretty obvious that there is, in fact, a gap in the edit. But it’s unlikely that you’re going to shuttle through your timeline zoomed in as close as you can to hunt down single frame gaps, especially in a long complex edit. Thankfully you don’t have to, because of the ‘Go To Gap’ feature within Premiere Pro.To find gaps of any length in your sequence, click on Sequence > Go to Gap > Next in Sequence to find the first gap forward of the playhead. As you can see in the image above, you can also use the keyboard shortcuts SHIFT+G for Next in Sequence and ALT+G for Previous in Sequence.Once Premiere Pro has found the last gap in your sequence, choosing Next in Sequence then does nothing. This is also the case once Premiere founds the first gap, so choosing Previous in Sequence then does nothing. How easy was that?Hopefully this Premiere Pro tip will help you out in the future.

Pimpri-Chinchwad to get police commissionerate

first_imgMumbai: The Maharashtra cabinet on Tuesday cleared the proposal to carve out a separate Pimpri-Chinchwad Police commissionerate from the existing Pune police commissionerate, with an aim to tackle the growing population, urbanisation, industrialisation, number of motor vehicles, political constituencies and increasing number of complaints. “Pimpri-Chinchwad has grown immensely in recent years. In addition, it hosts a large number of industries, IT companies in areas like Hinjewadi, and colleges. With constant influx of labourers from across the country in all industries, it has been observed that crime rate too is increasing,” said Girish Bapat, Guardian minister of Pune district. “The new arrangement will help in quick response to the crimes reported and maintain the law and order situation,” he said. The proposed commissionerate will have 15 police stations, namely Nigdi, Pimpri, Chinchwad, Bhosri, Bhosri MIDC, Wakad, Hinjewadi, Sangavi, Dighi and Chikhli from the urban areas while Chakan, Alandi, Dehuroad, Talegaon-Dabhade and Talegaon MIDC from rural part. It will cater to a population of around 22 to 23 lakh. On administrative front, the new commissionerate will require creation of 2,633 posts, which will be undertaken in three stages. For the first stage ₹107.72 crore will be spent on creation of 1,568 posts while ₹24.04 crore will be for office use ,and ₹188.83 crore for construction of residence. “We will require land of around 100 acres to set up a new office building, search for which has begun. The entire process would take a month or two,” said Mr. Bapat.last_img read more

Photo by PTIYusuf Pathan scored a quick-fire century and claimed three Kiwi scalps to lead India to an impressive five-wicket victory during the fourth ODI at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Tuesday.Batting at his usual pace, Pathan struck left, right and centre as the New Zealanders desperately tried for options. But, the option never came by as he went on to score an unbeaten 123 in an explosive batting show, which saw him hit as many as seven over-the-fence shots and an equal number of fours.Yusuf Pathan raises his bat after his half-century as Saurabh Tiwary looks on. Photo by APComing in after Andy McKay and Nathan McCullum had delivered double blows and the score was a poor 108/4, he changed the face of the game, which was gradually shifting towards New Zealand.McKay had dispatched Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli in the 10th over, while McCullum had dismissed Yuvraj Singh in the 18th and followed it up with Parthiv Patel’s wicket in 20th over. Patel put 53 on board.But, Pathan had other plans. He formed a partnership with Rohit Sharma and after his dismissal got involved in another partnership with young Saurabh Tiwary by his side.

But, his efforts came a cropper when Franklin scored 22 off his last over.advertisementPathan claimed important wickets of Scott Styris (46), skipper Daniel Vettori (17). Later he increased his victims list by adding Kyle Mills’s name in it.R Ashwin claimed two wickets on the day getting rid of danger-man Brendon McCullum (42) in the 14th over with Rohit Sharma performing the final rites at the short mid-wicket region and then dispatching Ross Taylor on 44.With this win India will be aiming for a series whitewash in the final ODI in Chennai on Friday.NUMBERS GAME6 Number of years taken by Parthiv Patel to make his comeback.

A Flying Jatt trailer out: Tiger Shroff fights the villain on land, under water, even the moon

first_imgIndia’s youngest superhero A Flying Jatt was not made in a day. Before fighting the main villain on the moon, the Flying Jatt crashed into police jeeps, got chased by dogs and had pepper sprayed into his eyes, as the new trailer of the film would show us.ALSO READ: Tiger Shroff sports a beard in new poster of A Flying JattALSO READ:  Tiger Shroff fights Mad Max villain Nathan Jones in A Flying Jatt ALSO READ: Tiger Shroff and Baaghi director Sabbir Khan to file defamation suit? Balaji Motion Pictures shared the trailer of the upcoming superhero film starring Tiger Shroff as the Flying Jatt and Dishoom actor Jacqueline Fernandez as his love interest.A Flying Jatt is directed by choreographer-turned-filmmaker Remo D’Souza who has previously made the ABCD films. With his regular composers Sachin-Jigar on the music director’s chair, A Flying Jatt is expected to have foot-tapping music and cool dance sequences apart from lots of action and CGI.Keeping in line with Shroff’s young age and boyish looks, in the first half of the trailer, we see the Flying Jatt not taking his powers seriously. He lends his hand to save a child in a burning building only to end up putting his hand on fire. The Flying Jatt, with his fear of heights, as his mother (played by Amrita Singh) complains, flies down into a police jeep and then gets his cape stuck in the tire.But when a suit-wearing Kay Kay Menon unleashes his nemesis (played by Mad Max: Fury Road actor Nathan Jones) on the world, the Flying Jatt trains hard and gets back on his feet to fight the evil, on land, under water, in the skies, and even on the moon. That’s right. They take their fight to the moon.advertisementWatch the trailer here:A Flying Jatt will release in Indian theatres on August 25 this year.last_img read more
