DOE News:The Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration Los Alamos Field Office has issued a National Environmental Policy Act Categorical Exclusion (CX) for the modification and upgrade of the NM-4 and East Jemez Road intersection on Los Alamos National Laboratory lands owned by the DOE, within Santa Fe County, New Mexico. The Proposed Action is to improve motor vehicle transportation safety and roadway capacity and efficiency. Once the intersection improvements are completed, the intersection and associated lands will be conveyed to Los Alamos County. An extra 50 feet right-of-way easement on the northwest side of NM-4 will be provided to the New Mexico Department of Transportation for the maintenance of the expanded NM-4 pavement, associated new road shoulders, and vegetation control along the roadway. Additionally, the current and designated visitor access to the National Park Service Bandelier National Monument (BNM) Tsankawi Unit is within the NM-4 right-of-way on the east side just north of East Jemez Road on DOE lands. BNM has proposed improvements to the Tsankawi Unit that includes a new vehicular access point and parking lot. The intersection design has incorporated a new entry point onto BNM Tsankawi Unit property that would improve safety and the BNM visitor experience.

DB Schenker’s Russian division, ZAO Schenker, won the bid for the project and quickly organised the necessary documentation for Customs clearance and permits for railway and road transportation.The consignment tipped the scale at 280 tonnes and had to be partially disassembled for transportation.”The choice of rolling stock and the design of a special method for securing the cargo wasn’t easy,” said Pavel Zahrov, head of project forwarding at ZAO Schenker. “The dimensions, the weight, the supporting surface, the transformers’ unusually high and shifted center of gravity – all these factors did not allow the application of traditional methods for placing and securing cargo, even in the case of using special-purpose railroad wagons. That’s why we developed a special solution that we coordinated with Russian Railways.”The transformers were successfully delivered to the Novosibirsk Hydroelectric Power Station less than 20 days after their arrival at the port of St. Petersburg. www.logistics.dbschenker.de
Our favourite Buell-powered café racer from Spain, the Bottpower XC1, gets face-lifted.Spanish firm Bottpower recently released new renderings of what appears to be an updated version of its XC1 café racer model.Known as the ‘version 3’, the refreshed café racer gains a new face thanks to a newly-added handlebar fairing, accompanied by a restyled fuel tank and redesigned tail section.The refreshment sees it drawing inspiration from older and newer thoughts. The unique part about the XC1 café racer is its ability to be transformed into the XR1 flat-tracker version as well by just swapping a few components here and there.Bottpower however retained the model’s original Buell-sourced Thunderstorm 1,203cc V-twin heart that offers roughly 100hp on tap.This particular version’s outlook differs from what we last saw, but it definitely sates our taste buds here at BR. Furthermore, Bottpower is known for customising each of its bikes to a customer’s specific taste and requirement, so the previous design is still available to order.Source: Bottpower via Asphaltandrubber and Visordown–Ads–
Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has told forward, Eden Hazard that he is free to leave Stamford Bridge if he wants to but the Italian hopes the Belgium international will stay at the club.Sarri stated this ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth on Wednesday night.Hazard has been strongly linked with a move to Champions League holders, Real Madrid in recent months.The 28-year-old further fuelled the speculation when he said in October 2018 that it was his dream to play for the Spanish La Liga giants.Chelsea are looking to renew his contract, which expires next season, and the west London side risk losing him for free in the close season in 2020 if he does not extend his current deal.“Eden is 28. If he wants to go, I think he has to go,” Sarri was quoted by Team talk as telling reporters ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth.“Of course, I hope the opposite, I hope he wants to stay here. He has the potential to be the best player in Europe at the moment.”Hazard has 10 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League so far this seaon, often playing up front in a ‘false nine’ role to lead the attack.But Sarri might play him on the wing again after the arrival of Argentine and Juventus striker, Gonzalo Higuain.Sarri added: “It’s my job to improve him and put him in a position to do his best”.
Related TopicsCleveland Cavaliers As the Cleveland Cavaliers (1-7) travel to Spectrum Center to take on Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Hornets (4-5), they’ll try to get their second win in three games, setting the tone for a much more competitive chapter than their first six games. With Walker averaging 29.1 points and 6.0 assists per game, the Cavs’ hands will be full but luckily, they’ve already executed a gameplan this season that’s shown itself to work against a point guard whose shifty, explosive scorer.Cleveland’s gameplan could be to get the ball out of Walker’s hands as much as possible by blitzing and trapping pick-and-rolls. Using their length and off-ball awareness, the starting unit could get out to a quick jump on the Hornets by forcing turnovers and executing in transition, like they did against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks in their first season of Drew’s tenure as acting head coach.After handily defeating the Hawks, the Cleveland Cavaliers offered fans a glimmer of hope in what’s been an otherwise dreary season. Starting off 0-6, the team fired head coach Tyronn Lue in hopes that Drew could provide the voice and the spark that Cleveland was missing under Lue.Their first win of the season was, however, just one win and a team with bad habits isn’t going to right the ship in one day. So, after getting blown out by the Denver Nuggets despite a hot start against Mile High’s seemingly playoff-bound team, it should be no surprise that the team’s tendency to play selfishly on offense and provide lackluster effort on reared their ugly head.Will Saturday night’s game be another step forward for the Cavaliers? Or will Walker and the Hornets’ three-point threats exploit their weaknesses?Location: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC.Probable Starters (CLE):George HillRodney HoodCedi OsmanSam DekkerLarry Nance Jr.Probable Starters (CHA):Kemba WalkerJeremy LambNicolas BatumMarvin WilliamsCody ZellerKey MatchupThe second unit backcourtsThough the Cavaliers starters have their hands full against Walker and Co., the Hornets have one of the better second unit backcourts in the league’s with Malik Monk and Tony Parker. If Cavaliers rookie point guard Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson can match the firepower of the Hornets’ backcourt, Cleveland will be in prime position to pull out a win. The Hornets’ almost certainly live and die with Walker’s performance so Sexton and Clarkson (averaging 28.1 points per game combined) have to continue to put pressure on opposing defenses.They just need to be smart about how they play, too.The Cavaliers win if…They move the ball, take their time and take good shots. The Cavaliers tend to be at their worst when they’re rushing to get a good shot for themselves and that shot-selection doesn’t bode well for Cleveland’s chance at victory for three reasons. Their work-in-progress transition defense, the team’s current lack of chemistry and their lack of an offensive identiy.The Hornets win if…They destroy the Cavaliers from beyond the arc. Cleveland has been one of the worst teams as defending the three-point line for multiple seasons because of players that don’t play with the prerequisite defensive effort. Teams are making 12.6 three-point attempts per game against the Cavaliers (ranked 20th in the NBA), taking 30.1 three-point attempts per game (12th in the NBA) and shooting 41.9 percent from three-point range (ranked 29th in the NBA). The Hornets make 12.8 three-point attempts per game (ranked 4th in the NBA), take 35.2 attempts per game (ranked 4th in the NBA) and convert 36.3 percent of their attempts (ranked 13th in the NBA).

FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享U.S. Senator’s Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) released statements after President Donald Trump delivered his third State of the Union Address on Tuesday night. Senator Sullivan: “I thought it was a strong speech. I thought it was an optimistic speech—optimism that was actually based on real results that we’re seeing in America because of our policies that we’re working on with the Trump administration. Growing the economy. Seven million new jobs created in just the last three years. The lowest unemployment rate in over 50 years. Wages are going up, poverty is going down. We’re going to be bringing this economic dynamism to our state. We have to. I think we’re on the verge of that.” During the Presidents address he highlighted the economy’s strength, including low unemployment, stressing how it has helped blue-collar workers and the middle class, though the period of growth began under his predecessor, Barack Obama. And what President Trump calls an unprecedented boom, economic growth was 2.3% in 2019, matching the average pace since the Great Recession ended a decade ago. On nights like this, I think back to one of my first conversations with President Trump, when he told me he wanted to get things done for the good of the country, and I told him I want to get things done for Alaska. We agreed to work together wherever we could, and we continue to work with the administration on issues important to Alaskans.” Senator Murkowski: “The past few months have been painfully polarizing in the Congress and across much of the country. But tonight, we saw reminders of why we should have hope for our nation. It starts with those who defend our freedoms with their very life. Our military – the men and women who serve in uniform, often far from home in difficult and dangerous conditions. Our thoughts tonight are with all our military and particularly the thousands who are based in Alaska, but currently deployed to Iraq. President Trump stressed the new trade agreements he has negotiated, including his phase-one deal with China and the United States-Mexico-Canada agreement he signed last month. While the White House said the president would have a message of unity, he also spent time on issues that have created great division and resonated with his political base.

Early in the second quarter, the Hoover, Alabama native caught his first pass – a 12-yard completion on third-and-10 from the Southern Miss 21.A play later, he caught his first career touchdown pass, which gave MSU a 14-10 lead and helped Dak Prescott tie the school record for career passing touchdowns.“His first series he has two catches and a touchdown,” MSU coach Dan Mullen said. “He must think ‘Holy cow, this college stuff is pretty easy.’ But, he’s had a great training camp.”Johnson was one of three true freshman to play in Saturday’s season-opening 34-16 win for MSU (1-0). Malik Dear and Jamal Peters also appeared on special teams.Johnson was a favorite among first-year players to see time as a freshman because of the lack of depth Mississippi State had at tight end.Gus Walley entered the season as the only tight end on the roster with a catch in his career. He caught four passes for 49 yards. He had three receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown against USM.“Justin made the move right before training camp to move him to tight end,” Mullen said. “I said you might have a great opportunity to play if you can learn. He got a lot of reps and did a great job.”The departure of Malcolm Johnson created a vacancy at tight end. At 6-foot-3, 229 pounds, the true freshman Johnson mirrors the size of the NFL-Johnson, who played at 6-2, 231 last year.Malcolm was one of 15 starters MSU lost from last season.“I think our kickoff coverage team, I think every guy on that team it was their first snap of college football,” Mullen said. “There may have been one or two who ever played before.”Peters and Dear both debuted in kickoff coverage. Along with redshirt freshman Gerri Green.Dear enrolled at Mississippi State in January after graduating early from Murrah High School in Jackson.“Obviously that changes everything, for all high school kids,” Mullen said. “If they graduate early, it’s going to put them in a much better position to get on the field.”Peters signed with Mississippi State in February as the team’s top player in its 2015 recruiting class. Mullen said during his signing-day press conference that the Bassfield safety could play immediately.“Jamal Peters, All-American, five-star-everything recruit, but understood when I talked to him, when guys get in, this is college,” Mullen said. “This is the SEC. You’ve gotta learn to be a special teams player. And you know what? He bought into that from day one.”Mississippi State played five true freshmen last year. Westin Graves and Logan Cooke were both kickers. At 24-years-old and a former minor league baseball player, Rashun Dixon wasn’t a conventional freshman. Jamoral Graham returned punts and played wide receiver. Injuries forced J.T. Gray into the defensive lineup in the final six games of the season.Only Dixon and Graves played in last year’s season-opener.Mullen expects more first-year players to see the field this year as well. The seventh year coach mentioned safety Mark McLaurin and corner Maurice Smitherman as other true freshmen that may not redshirt.“Depending on health on how things go that we have to go get guys ready to get in a game,” Mullen said. “I think there’ll be even more going out and hitting the field.”Contact Michael Bonner at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Soccer Romellu Lukaku is reportedly in contention to start against Chelsea after shaking off an ankle injury. The Belgian striker has been sidelined for the past two weeks after hobbling off against Arsenal last month. Lukaku missed Manchester United’s final three Premier League games of the season, as he returned to Belgium to receive treatment. United were tempted to recall Lukaku for the final league encounter of the season, but decided it was best to save the 25-year-old for the FA Cup final. Lukaku returned to training on Tuesday and is now in line to start against his former side, the Sun claim. Chelsea and United go toe-to-toe in the final, with both sides desperate to add some silverware to a disappointing season. United were convincingly beaten by Manchester City to the league title, while Chelsea missed out on Champions League football by finishing fifth in the table. The return of Lukaku will be a major boost to United who rely on the goals from their No.1 striker. Lukaku has bagged 27 goals in his first season at United and will be hoping to end his debut campaign with a trophy.
