Everything is more difficult without Valverde

first_imgThe statistics underline Valverde’s merits, without which everything is much more difficult for Madrid. While he is on the field, the partial scorer is overwhelmingly favorable: 31-4. Without it the data, although still positive, are less happy: 19-16. And now the Spanish Super Cup, a tournament that can finish picking up. The importance of Fede Valverde in this Real Madrid is such that its presence and absences are almost noticed. Without him in the Coliseum, Zidane’s team sweated seas in defense and saw his offensive flow diminished with respect to recent attacks. They saved the Courtois ballot and two isolated actions on Varane aerial balls, but those trees do not prevent to see the forest. The data indicate its importanceThat career for the sentence defines the impudence and power of a soccer player who even Zidane had gone virtually unnoticed. In fact, with Zizou himself he started 2019-20 without entering the plane to Vigo. Now Madrid is not understood without him, the eighth player in minutes (1,139) of the squad. Zidane pulled a manual topic in the press room to explain its substitution: “Everyone is involved. I have 25 players and they always play 11. In the end it is everyone’s question …”. center_img Fede entered the 70 ‘and his greatest merit was his Instant adaptation to the rhythm of the game and the commendable intensity of Getafe de Bordalás. He did not clash and began to cover the field, avoiding any possible disconnection in the final minutes. He provided eight passes (seven successful) or a clearing, but above all an assistance preceded by a spectacular gallop. In the discount he went to the rival goal like a rocket, gasoline was left over, and he ended up serving Modric 0-3, That accompanied very well and only had to push the ball to the net.last_img read more

Key decisions for Zidane as Madrid rebuild begins

first_img0Shares0000Zidane has returned to Real Madrid despite resigning as coach last year © AFP/File / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMADRID, Spain, Mar 15 – Zinedine Zidane has promised change at Real Madrid this summer and the last 11 games of the season will give an indication as to who will be part of his new era.Zidane’s first match since being reappointed as coach comes against Celta Vigo on Saturday, with Madrid lying in no-man’s land in La Liga, 12 points behind Barcelona in first and 10 ahead of Alaves in fifth. Atletico are away to Athletic Bilbao while Barcelona travel to Real Betis on Sunday.But several Madrid players are playing for their futures before the campaign ends and Zidane’s selection will offer early clues as to his thinking about his squad.Here, AFP Sport looks at five areas of contention ahead of the game at the Santiago Bernabeu this weekend:Bale clean slate?Gareth Bale was the player many hoped would step up after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus but injuries have again disrupted his rhythm and, when fit, he has only delivered in flashes.Zidane lost patience with Bale last year, believing the Welshman to be a liability defensively and unreliable with his fitness. The pair were barely speaking at times and while Zidane’s departure opened the door for Bale to stay, his return may now prompt his exit.Navas or Courtois?Keylor Navas was a favourite of Zidane, who repeatedly persuaded the club against signing a new goalkeeper, such was his faith in the Costa Rican.After Zidane left, Madrid bought Thibaut Courtois and while Julen Lopetegui used both players, Santiago Solari put his faith in Courtois and left Navas out in the cold.Restoring Navas would be a bold move, particularly given Courtois cost the club around 40 million euros last summer. But the Belgian’s form has not been particularly convincing and Navas remains a popular figure in the dressing room.Marcelo or Reguilon?Solari promoted a handful of youngsters during his tenure and while Vinicius Junior was the most spectacular to emerge, Sergio Reguilon has been excellent at left-back too.The 22-year-old is adept both going forward and defensively while his crossing has proven a significant attacking weapon.Marcelo was dropped by Solari, considered out of form and out of shape, but was a regular under Zidane, who values the Brazilian’s character and experience, as well as his ability.Isco revival?Isco’s situation could hardly get any worse. He failed to start a single La Liga game under Solari and was surely destined for an exit in the summer if the Argentinian had stayed in charge.But Zidane’s return offers new hope for the midfielder, whose time under the Frenchman was far from plain-sailing but finished on a high.Isco pointedly said at one stage last season he preferred playing for Spain than Madrid under Zidane, only to then regain his place and start both legs in the semi-final and the final in the Champions League. He will be hoping to continue where he left off.Llorente or Casemiro?In the end, results left Solari with nowhere to turn but few could argue against his courage in giving youth a chance.The 24-year-old Marcos Llorente impressed greatly in midfield and it remains to be seen whether his progress now continues under Zidane. Casemiro and Toni Kroos have both endured disappointing seasons alongside Luka Modric, who continues to be linked with a move to Italy.Zidane may be tempted to spend big in the summer but might do well to look closer to home as well. Llorente looks ready to step up.Fixtures FridayReal Sociedad v Levante (11pm)SaturdayHuesca v Alaves (3pm), Real Madrid v Celta Vigo (6:15pm), Athletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid (8:30pm), Leganes v Girona (10:45pm)SundayEibar v Real Valladolid (2pm), Espanyol v Sevilla (6:15pm), Valencia v Getafe (8:30pm), Villarreal v Rayo Vallecano (8:30pm), Real Betis v Barcelona (10:45pm)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img Preview Buy Tickets Live Stats 1350 ESPN Des Moines Mediacom/MC 22 HTML Box Score Valparaiso 10/5/2019 – 2 p.m. The second quarter started slow for Drake before its offense kicked back into gear right before halftime. Lauer extended the lead with 35 seconds left as he punched the football in from four yards out. The Bulldogs made the PAT but a poor kickoff gave Marist good field position. However, cornerback Jeran Proctor (Johnston, Iowa) picked off a pass on the Red Foxes’ first play, and returned it all the way to their 21-yard line. Corwin then hit Cates for 17 yards as the Bulldogs took timeout. After the timeout, Corwin found Hartlieb for his first career touchdown catch, with 11 seconds left before halftime.

Story Links POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The Drake University football team cruised to a 41-17 road win over Marist Saturday, Sept. 28 in its Pioneer Football League opener. Watch Livecenter_img Four different Bulldogs hauled in touchdown passes from Corwin as Devin Cates (Yuba City, Calif.), Steven Doran (Germantown, Wis.), Matt Hartlieb (Mequon, Wis.) and Shane Feller (Charles City, Iowa) all found the end zone.

Freshman quarterback Ian Corwin (Tulsa, Okla.) had a career day with four touchdown passes and 255 yards on 20-of-29 passing.”We wanted to start fast and talk about starting fast,” said Drake head coach Todd Stepsis. “We came out of the gates scoring the touchdown on the very first drive and what I loved was how we played even harder and we finished with another touchdown going into halftime. To me that that was the difference in the game.” Drake returns to Drake Stadium Oct. 5 for just its second home game of the season. Kickoff against the Crusaders is set for 1 p.m. and it will be Homecoming and Family Weekend.Print Friendly Version Doran’s touchdown was highlight reel material as he skied for a 29-yard touchdown late in the third quarter.

Doran’s capped an impressive 76-yard drive on nine plays on a drive that lasted 4:06. Marist finally found the end zone with 8:43 left in the third quarter as the score pulled within 27-10. However, Drake answered with back-to-back touchdowns before the Red Foxes scored the game’s final touchdown with 6:56 left in the contest. Danny Morales (Temecula, Calif.) recorded a career-high nine tackles and Alex Rogers (Racine, Wis.) added eight.Not only was it a huge team win for Drake Saturday, but the victory was extra special for the program as Stepsis earned his first career win as a head coach. He is in his first season at the helm for the Bulldogs after five seasons as the program’s defensive coordinator. Drake wasted little time getting on the scoreboard after it forced a Red Foxes’ punt on the opening drive. The Bulldogs went 59 yards on six plays in just 2:51, capped by a 22-yard touchdown catch by Cates, who was wide open after a great play action by Corwin. It is the second touchdown of the season for Cates, who switched from wide receiver to tight end in his final season.last_img read more

A Balanced Ventilation System With a Built-In Heat Pump

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members A small manufacturing company in Illinois called Build Equinox has developed a new ventilation appliance called the Conditioning Energy Recovery Ventilator, or CERV. Build Equinox was founded by an engineer, Ty Newell, and his son Ben Newell. (Ty Newell designed and built the Equinox House, which was described in a GBA article published in 2011.)The CERV is a balanced ventilation system that includes an integrated air-source heat pump — a type of appliance that has been dubbed a “magic box” by Passivhaus designers. According to Ty Newell, Build Equinox has sold about 50 CERV units.There is just one model of the appliance; Ty Newell told me that “one size fits all.” The CERV is unlike any other appliance sold in the U.S.: Operating the CERV When the CERV is commissioned, the user has to choose the sensitivity of the CO2 and VOC sensors. Even though the human health effects of 1,000 ppm of CO2 are not really comparable to the human health effects of 1,000 ppm of VOCs, the manufacturer of the CERV requires CERV users to choose a single setpoint (in parts per million) for CO2 and VOCs. While this setpoint can be raised or lowered, the CO2 setpoint and the VOC setpoint move in lock-step.Peter Schneider, a senior project manager at the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation in Burlington, Vermont, has specified several CERV systems. “I set them at 1,000 ppm,” says Schneider.According to the CERV owner’s manual, “In general, a lower air quality setpoint will result in better quality air and higher energy consumption, while a higher air quality setpoint will result in lower quality air and lower energy consumption. On one hand, you do not want to be overventilating your house and producing unneeded conditioning demands on your systems, while on… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

Red Hat’s Big Data Push: All Hat, No Cattle

first_imgTags:#Big Data#Hadoop#Open Source#Red Hat 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now david hamilton Big Data is, well, big these days. (Maybe too big for its own good.) So it should surprise exactly no one that Red Hat, itself a big open-source enterprise software and services company, wants to wear the Big Data hat, too. Which is exactly what it announced in an hour-long Webcast on Wednesday.So, terrific. Red Hat is now a Big Data company – at least, that is, if you believe Red Hat. What does that mean, exactly? Surprisingly little.Let’s put it this way: Red Hat’s big news was that it is open-sourcing its storage plug-in for Hadoop, a popular open-source software framework that supports both distributed data and distributed applications. (Simpler explanation: Hadoop makes it possible to run data-intensive applications physically near the data itself, which greatly speeds things up because it’s no longer necessary to shuttle great piles of data across a network.)As a step toward transforming Red Hat’s own storage file system into a “fully-supported, Hadoop-compatible file system for big data environments,” as the company puts it, this is doubtless noteworthy. As something concrete on which enterprise customers can, uh, hang their hat, it leaves a lot to be filled in later.That wouldn’t be a problem if Red Hat had provided other noteworthy details, such as a road map for its development of what it calls an “open hybrid cloud.” It’s a nifty enough idea, essentially amounting to a data environment that would help business move their applications from in-house servers to those offered by cloud providers such as Amazon’s Web Services unit without having to rewrite them.But while Ranga Rangachari, Red Hat’s vice president of storage, talked up the open hybrid cloud and the “robust network” of partners Red Hat plans to work with to make it a reality, he had nothing to say about time frames or even the identities of its partners. “Just stay tuned as we come up with more definite dates and times and start – we’ll absolutely make those partners available,” Rangachari pleaded at the end of the event.Maybe Red Hat is saving the details for the next roundup.(See also Big Data: Red Hat’s Jim Whitehurst Looks 20 Years Into The Future)Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
