Striker Defoe ‘fears he could be forced to quit Tottenham’

first_imgJermain Defoe fears he could be forced to quit Tottenham if he is facing another season on the bench, the Daily Mirror report.QPR have been linked with the England striker, with Sunderland and Reading also said to be interested.“Everyone knows how much I love Tottenham. Everybody knows that they are the club I want to play for,” he said.“But last season was heartbreaking for me in terms of putting my body on the line, being prepared to give everything for the club and not getting a game.”The Sun claim Arsenal are ahead of QPR and Fulham in a race to sign South Korean star Ki Sung-Yueng from Celtic.Once again it is suggested – this time by the Daily Mail – that QPR want to loan Joey Barton to a League club in order to run down his 12-match ban but the Football League will not sanction a deal. Clint Dempsey thinks Liverpool will now finally table a firm bid for him, according to the Mirror.Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is interested in signing Dempsey from Fulham, where the American has reportedly fallen out with manager Martin Jol.And it is claimed that Liverpool shelling out £15m to capture midfielder Joe Allen from Swansea has left Dempsey believing Rodgers will now look to complete a deal to sign him too.Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton are considering making a move for Dempsey, the Mail report.Meanwhile, the Mirror say Chelsea have entered fresh talks with Marseille in an attempt to push through the £6m signing of Spain full-back Cesar Azpilicueta before the new season starts.They will apparently turn to alternatives, including Juventus’ Switzerland right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, if their pursuit of Azpilicueta does not work out.This page is regularly updated. Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Leeds United boss bemoans lack of options

first_imgLeeds United manager Neil Redfearn bemoaned a lack of options from the bench after his side’s 1-0 home defeat to Fulham.Redfearn brought on striker Billy Sharp and Wales Under-21 midfielder Chris Dawson in an attempt to take the game back from the visitors’ grasp, after Hugo Rodallega’s goal on the hour mark.But although they probed and produced a couple of saves from Whites keeper Gabor Kiraly, they were unable to muster an equaliser.Redfearn said: “There was too many off-days. We lacked that cutting edge, we looked reluctant to shoot. At the other end, they got in our box too easy.“The squad needs a bit of help, sometimes off the bench. If you’ve got more options you can think about playing differently.”Redfearn also revealed that midfielder Rudolph Austin was ruled out of the match after a “freak accident” during the warm-up.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Blog Review: Thriving on Low Carbon

first_imgMy carbon footprint“A few years ago, probably after reading Jim Merkel’s book Radical Simplicity, I worked through one of the carbon calculators. My carbon footprint was different than most Americans, because I lived in a house that I designed to run primarily off of renewable energy. It was eye-opening to see that four domestic airplane flights annually, three of them in the eastern US, and one to the west coast, were half my carbon footprint. Forty percent of the total was driving a car – 18-20,000 miles a year, even though it was a 40 mpg car. Over two-thirds of this was work-related, so I rationalized it, but I actually don’t like driving and therefore had a double motivation to reduce auto miles.” On teaching and lineage“In Buddhism, lineage is the line of teachers who have passed the Dharma from teacher to student in a recurring and unbroken cycle – the student becomes the teacher of the next student… Lineage is vertical and successional. In contrast, community is lateral and evolving. To continue with the Buddhist analogy, the word is sangha. Sangha is a mutually supportive community composed of members with a shared vision and set of values. The environmental/solar/energy efficient building community has been my sangha for over thirty years. I’ve made a number of my closest friends from this community, and I’ve learned almost all I know about the work I do from it.” Why heating with oil had to go“If you arrived at this blog, you don’t need to be convinced that it’s a worthy goal to burn less fossil fuels. That’s not the only reason to want the oil system gone, though. Have you ever been in a house where there has been a spill of fuel oil? It soaks into the ground below. You can smell it for decades. The cost of clean up can exceed the value of the house.” The problem with payback“At some point in every workshop or seminar I teach, whether it’s on Zero Net Energy Homes, or Deep Energy Retrofits, or Passive House principles, someone stands up and makes an impassioned speech about how all this is well and good but what’s the payback?…The quickest response I have is, if you predict the future price of energy over the lifespan of these improvements, I’ll tell you the payback. My habit when pushed to actually do some financial analysis is to present it in the form of scenario planning – I’ll often select three rates of energy inflation and do the calcs showing the Net Present Value of the investment in each inflation scenario. The longer you project it out, the more dramatic are the differences. The usual result of this exercise is that those who are the decision makers begin to act from a position of risk avoidance, because the highest inflation rates in fuel costs get scary.”center_img Marc Rosenbaum is a well-known energy consultant who for 25 years lived in a house he called Nerdwood in Meriden, NH. It was heated mostly by wood and the sun. Rosenbaum’s company, Energysmiths, took on a variety of consulting jobs, including some for South Mountain Company on Martha’s Vineyard, which developed a cohousing community there called Island Cohousing.Then, last June, Rosenbaum left New Hampshire and moved with his companion Jill and their dog to a rented house at Island Cohousing and went to work for South Mountain. They have since purchased the house and settled into the 16-house community, which describes itself as an “ongoing experiment in collaborative living.”This spring, Rosenbaum also started a blog called Thriving on Low Carbon that talks about his experiences in his new home.“As most new homeowners know, every direction you look, you can imagine a way to spend money,” Rosenbaum writes in an early blog entry. “Living as we now do in a maritime location, I can tell you that at least a house is not as bad as a boat, which I learned is an acronym for Bust Out Another Thousand$.”Still, Rosenbaum is finding plenty to do. The houses in his community were more carefully built than the average house (Rosenbaum, in fact, consulted on the specs), but there were a number of improvements that could be made. Rosenbaum hooked up his trusty blower door, got out his theatrical fog machine and went to work finding and fixing air leaks. And he removed the oil-fired boiler that had been providing hot water and heat and replaced it with a ductless minisplit heat pump. No doubt there’s a lot more to come.The subtitle for Rosenbaum’s blog is “How I’m thinking about our house, transportation, food and waste, to minimize environmental impact, while improving quality of life and having fun.”That seems about right. There is some geeky stuff here, but nothing off-putting or overly technical. Instead, it’s a readable mix of technical information and observations of a more personal nature. The tone is open, friendly and informative.Here are a few excerpts: About heating with biomass“What about biomass? Advocates often say that biomass is carbon neutral, because a tree absorbs carbon as it grows, and as it decays, that carbon is released. By burning biomass, we’re just hastening the release. I don’t think it’s quite that simple. Pellets, especially if they are made from wood chips (they used to be wood waste, less so today) need to have the wood chipped, then dried, then ground up and pressed into pellets. There is some fractional PE factor there. Firewood cut on your own place with a handsaw has a pretty low [primary energy] factor!”last_img read more

Why the Full Frame vs. Crop Sensor Argument Isn’t Important

first_imgSensor size may be less important that you imagined.Traditionally I would advise people to get a full-frame camera if they could, but it seems like the necessity to shoot with a full frame sensor has been diminishing over the past few years. Full frame cameras get better bokeh (background blur) and they don’t have a crop factor, but in many ways they are as capable as their cropped sensor counterparts.Lens manufacturers are creating more lenses designed for cropped sensors, lessening the ‘inconvenience’ of shooting with a cropped sensor camera. So, the biggest consideration is the size of the crop factor. Whereas, a regular APS-C camera has a crop factor of around 1.7x, the difference between this and a full frame camera is lessened. However, if you’re shooting with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, which has a crop factor of 2.88x, you will see a significantly larger difference between this and a full frame camera.The following video created by Zack Arias shows us the real difference between a full vs. cropped sensor. In the video, Zack shares his opinion on why you shouldn’t care so much about cropped sensors.This video was first shared by Zach Arias on his YouTube channel. Thanks for sharing Zach!One thing to note is that while there may not be huge differences between a full vs. cropped sensor in functionality, there is often a positive correlation between sensor size and camera specs. So if we are looking at a Canon camera for example a 7D with a cropped sensor isn’t going to have specs that are as good as a 6D with a full frame sensor. Keep this in mind next time you go looking for a new camera.If you want to learn more about sensors, stabilization, and crop factor check out our Understanding Lenses series on the PremiumBeat blog where we take an in-depth look at all the features to consider when purchasing a lens.Do you think Zack’s argument is valid? Do we place too much importance on sensor size rather than camera specs? Share in the comments below.last_img read more

Tokyo returns with Summer Games with something new to prove

first_img“And there will be more to come,” Coates said. Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next This time the Japanese capital wants to remind the rest of the world that China and South Korea haven’t left behind the first economic powerhouse in East Asia. They will use the games to showcase a clean, safe, and innovative city; an urban maze of nightlife, shopping, and dizzying subway lines that give texture to “Cool Japan” and the country’s place as a cultural touchstone.“It’s going to be a good opportunity to showcase Japanese culture, our technology, our products, our good level of service to give impetus to the Japanese economy,” Maki Kobayashi-Terada of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told The Associated Press.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“It’s exactly soft power … to create economic impact,” Kobayashi-Terada added, a fancy term that means translating an engaging culture into political and economic power.Tokyo has billed itself as a “safe pair of hands” for the Olympics, which is everything that Rio de Janeiro wasn’t. The 2016 Games left behind scandals, millions in unpaid bills, and useless “white elephant” venues. But exactly what’s in it for Japan?Kobayashi-Terada said the Olympics will improve accessibility for the elderly and for people with disabilities, modernize infrastructure and drive tourism. She said Japan had 29 million foreign visitors last year, and hopes to have 40 million in 2020. Tourism is booming, particularly from Asia.The Olympics will also try to convince the world about the safety of Fukushima, where a nuclear reactor was damaged after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The prefecture north of Tokyo is a venue for baseball and softball.“There are only some limited villages which are restricted for entry,” Kobayashi-Terada said. “But there are so many other places which are already under recovery. We’d like to show that and thank the world.”But there also hints of scandal.A French-led investigation has been looking into $2 million paid by the Tokyo Olympic bid team — or representatives — to sports officials who have been linked to vote-buying in IOC bid elections. A Japanese investigation concluded the payments were not illegal.“Our committee is different from the bidding committee,” Kobayashi-Terada said. “We believe that we got Tokyo 2020 because our bid was the best one.”And there are domestic doubters.Japan is already a high-tax country that does not need the Olympics to spur building new bridges, trains and highways. Taxpayers have been critical of too much spending on questionable projects.“Tokyo lacks a clear purpose for hosting the games other than city development, and that’s why many people are still puzzled today,” said Yuji Ishizaka, an expert on the Olympics at Japan’s Nara Women’s University. After 2 lopsided losses to Thunder, Durant leads Warriors rout Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving Ishizaka said people are bothered by delays and scandals involving the redevelopment plans for Tokyo’s world-famous Tsukiji fish market and the city’s bay area, where several events will be held.And Ishizaka fears the Olympics “may be used to declare the end to disaster reconstruction” in the Fukushima area, suggesting things are back to normal.“The 2020 Games should be a big festival, but we can’t expect much growth and many people, even residents of Tokyo, will hardly notice the changes that Tokyo has gone through,” Ishizaka said.The IOC and local organizers say they’re cutting costs. John Coates, the IOC member overseeing Tokyo’s plans, said recently that Tokyo had cut $1.4 billion from the price tag. Some venues have been moved to other areas, and existing venues will be used instead of building new ones.Coates lauded Tokyo’s transparency and mentioned Rio.“In Rio we didn’t know who was paying what — if at all,” he said.Tokyo organizers say the games will cost about 1.35 trillion yen ($12.5 billion). However, last month Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said the city would spend an added 810 billion yen ($7.5 billion) on “projects directly and indirectly related to the games.”The IOC and organizers argue those expenditures fall “outside the overall games budget.” This is a debate that rages at every games: Exactly what are, and what aren’t, Olympic expenses?Koike said the new costs included building barrier-free facilities for Paralympic athletes, training programs for volunteers, and advertising and tourism plans.That puts the total cost at about $20 billion, 70 percent of which is public money. This figure includes the privately run local organizing committee’s budget of 600 billion yen ($5.5 billion). About $2.91 billion of that is coming from national marketing program that has landed 47 sponsors. AFP official booed out of forum Tokyo also marks a watershed for the battered International Olympic Committee.After corruption dogged the games in Rio, and a doping scandal grew out of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Tokyo should be the first of three return-to-normal Summer Games in first-world metropolises. The IOC has already picked Paris for 2024 and Los Angeles for 2028.And Japan also has hosted two successful Winter Olympics in Nagano and Sapporo.“I don’t think the International Olympic Committee is going to go to a developing city any longer,” Olympic historian David Wallechinsky told The Associated Press. “They don’t want that anymore. They want cities that are ready.”The Pyeongchang Olympics were Wallechinsky’s 18th, and he has researched every Olympics extensively including Tokyo. Those Olympics kicked off when Yoshinori Sakai — born in Hiroshima the day the city was hit by the 1945 atomic bomb — lit the Olympic cauldron.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
