Western Melbourne says they will respect FFA’s marquee calls but will aim at bringing foreign talents who will help build the club.Western Melbourne hopes to sign Scott Brown who is currently the Captain of Scottish side Celtic as their marquee but reports from Scottish Daily Record says the FFA has refused to allow Western Melbourne to dip into the governing body’s marquee fund to help sign the 33-year-old Bhoys captain.The club has now come out to state they will respect they’ll respect any marquee fund decisions from FFA whether or not the Scott Brown deal pulls through.“Whether or not a player qualifies for funding from FFA is up to FFA criteria, we respect whatever they deem fit,” Lou Sticca, one of the major players behind Western Melbourne, told FTBL.Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“Western Melbourne is about recruiting foreign players that we feel will be important to our club in our formative seasons.“What this means is setting the right leadership from our foreigners to help the team be successful on the park, but importantly in dressing rooms and at training, to help build a real football culture.“Strong and experienced players that will protect our younger players and give them the confidence to express themselves.”

The festival showcases the work of numerous local artists, including Tony Paraná, a Brazilian artist who now calls Houston home.He recently unveiled a new piece inspired by his adopted hometown, and it will be the featured artwork for the downtown festival.The painting features Houston’s skyline in the background, blended with a scene of children playing around water fountains at Discovery Green. It also features some elements of his home country: the children are practicing capoeira – a Brazilian form of martial arts – and there’s a favela visible between skyscrapers – those are cramped, often impoverished neighborhoods seen in Brazilian cities.Paraná tells Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty about his work, about life growing up in a favela, and the piece that will be showcased at the festival.– / 6 Listen X Tony ParanáA painting inspired by Houston and Brazil, created by artist Tony Paraná as the featured artwork for the 2017 Bayou City Art Festival Downtown.

© 2014 Phys.org Close-ups of an experiment conducted by John Bush and his student Daniel Harris, in which a bouncing droplet of fluid was propelled across a fluid bath by waves it generated. Credit: Dan Harris (Phys.org) —It was an interesting week for physics research, as a team at MIT began taking a second look at pilot-wave theory—they’re wondering if, when looked at a certain way , fluid mechanics might suggest an alternative to quantum orthodoxy—they’re taking a new approach to define whether some types of matter are particles, or waves, or whether it’s about particles being carried along by waves. Meanwhile, another team at Chalmers University of Technology announced that the sound of an atom has been captured. By using sound to communicate with an artificial atom, they are looking to find ways to allow sound to take on the role of light in certain quantum physics situations to demonstrate certain phenomena. And at Princeton University, researchers have begun crystallizing light to create “solid” light that could compute previously unsolvable problems—locking photons together, they suggest, might also help answer some of the fundamental questions physicists still have regarding matter.Space scientists have been busy as well. One team built a model that simulates the birth of our solar system revealing a planetary mystery—are the planets that exist now part of a normal natural process or was there one or more rare events that led to their formation? More research will have to be done to find better evidence. Also, researchers working with Hubble found a supernova companion star after two decades of searching.In more practical news, researchers at the University of Glasgow reported that they had found a Hydrogen production breakthrough that could herald cheap green energy—they claim their process is 30 times faster than conventional techniques. Another team at UW-Madison claimed to have developed a tabletop motor using an entirely new driving principle based on an electric, rather than magnetic, field.There were also some surprises last week as well: Researchers at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine announced a potential breakthrough in treating liver cancer—they found that a hormone that is involved in mammalian milk production might also help prevent liver cancer. And another team in England has created a new digital map that reveals some stunning, hidden archaeology of Stonehenge. It’s actually kind of eerie looking at it.And finally, if you’ve been wondering if you, or perhaps some of those around you, are inherently evil, a team of psychologists suggests that evil is not so banal, after all. They’re looking into what is known as the “banality of evil,” where ordinary people go along with atrocities, such as the holocaust, as mindless puppets. They think such instances are not banal at all and instead occur because those that go along when ordered to do so, do it out of a feeling of identification—this would mean that people committing such acts have far more choice in the matter than most of us would like to believe.

Kolkata: A fire audit has been conducted at 644 multi-storey buildings and places across the city and more buildings will soon be covered to check the incidents of fire, said state Fire minister Sujit Bose.While answering a question, Bose recently said in the Assembly that his department has been undertaking all preventive measures to curb incidents of fire in the state. To ensure that all the buildings adhere to the fire safety norms, particularly the high-rise ones, the Fire department has initiated the audit. Many more buildings have been identified, where fire audit would be undertaken soon, the minister said.

It has been found during investigation that the buildings which catch fire, lack fire safety mechanisms. It may be recalled that the city has recently witnessed a number of fire incidents in various places. The Fire minister also said that Rs 104.44 crore was spent in the last financial year for modernisation and buying new equipments. Around 11 new ladders have been procured at Rs 11 crore and Rs 35 crore was spent for buying new equipments. Many fire stations have been constructed in different places.

Hakim also proposed certain rules and regulations after discussing with the fire brigade. Fire audit is necessary in marketplaces and multi-storeyed buildings because the firefighters often face problems while dousing the flames due to the hoardings and glow-signboards which remain fixed on the buildings. As a result of this, the firefighters have to pull down the hoardings to spray water. Meanwhile, Kolkata Municipal Corporation officials also held meetings with the Fire department to impose some restrictions on hawkers who put up their stalls in marketplaces.
