Danish disappointment as Argentina steals a point

Posted on

← Previous Story QATAR 2015 (Day 2): Argentina upset Denmark Next Story → Germans give revenge to Poland Disappointment and extreme joy were the feelings on the Lusail Multipurpose Hall after the last match of the day between Denmark and Argentina. The first, reflected on the faces of the European and World runner’s up, the latter on the Argentinian Gladiadores who grasped one point after a hard fought battle that finished with a 24-24 tie.“Today’s result is historical for Argentinian handball. Probably the best result along with our win over Sweden in Sweden in 2011.Whenever we reach our maximum standard of play we feel that we can beat everyone”, stressed right wing Federico Pizarro who was the MVP of the match (8 goals) and helped the team to a stunning result for the world of handball.The first minutes of the match were tight and Argentina took the lead 3-5, but soon Niklas Landin and Anders Eggert reacted and they both helped for the team comeback. The conducted by Eduardo Gallardo were doing a good job in the defence, but failed at the other end of the court (scored only three goals on the last 20’ of the first half), while the Danish made use of their backcourt power to take a five goal lead. They Europeans managed to score even when being two men down. By the end of the first 30 minutes the scoreboard was 13-8.At the beginning of the second half Denmark kept the control of the match and despite the three minute suspensions they received on the first 11 minutes, they were able to keep the lead and, ironically, Argentina’s comeback started right after Federico Fernandez’ third two minute suspension. This meant that the South Americans were left without one of the most efficient wingers and better defenders. But that only seemed to give the Argentinians more strength.GudmundurGudmundsson boys entered on a 6’ spell without goals (both goalkeepers Matias Schulz and Fernando García had a lot to do with that), and the Gladiadores, led by a fast paced attack and successful definitions against Landin, approached the Scandinavians on the scoreboard.With a two goal difference and two minutes left to be played, hopes were high for Argentina but the attack was in Danish hands. An offensive foul by Casper Mortensen led to a fast break that concluded with a goal from Leonardo Querin. Denmark was 24-23 ahead and there was one minute left on the clock. Mikkel Hansen faked a shot on 9 meters and bounced the ball past the defence straight through the center, but failed to catch the ball after the bounce and the last possession was for Argentina.Montpellier’s star Diego Simonet, who had had a discrete first half, took the responsibility and after a characteristic sprint from left to right, scored the 24th goal and tied the match with just 20” left. Argentina’s tough defence managed to keep Denmark away from the goal, but the Europeans had a last chance with a last free shot when the time was over. Hansen made the defencejump after the fake, but Garcia, who had very important interventions throughout the second half, saved the last ball of the match and helped the Argentinians grab the first point of the tournament.Gudmundsson did not hide his disappointment after the match: “I was rather content with our first half and our start of the second, but then we started to move the ball around too slowly.However, it is never easy when being one or two players down for almost all the time. It was quite unbelievable to experience this, but one point is still better than none. We will simply have to come back”.Center back Bo Spellerberg also shared his view: “We were leading by six, but we made too many mistakes in the second half, and Argentina were good at punishing those through counter attacks.We had the chance to close the match several times, but they managed to put pressure on us all the way, we missed some big opportunities.”“We knew beforehand that Denmark was one of the best teams in the world. If we were going to stand a chance, we would have to be at our best at both ends of the court, while Denmark would need to have a very bad day”, expressed Gallardo and added: “I think the match developed the way we had planned, and I am very pleased with this result, of course.”“Our first half was not good, but in second half we improved in defence as well as in attack and both our goalkeepers were great. In the end victory could have gone either way”, confessed Pizarro after the match.Argentina will face Poland on Sunday while Denmark will meet Saudi Arabia.TEXT: LAURA AGENA argentinaDiego Simonet read more

The 57-years old Vujovic dismissed offer from Orlen Wisla Plock to accept challenge with Serbian teams who will compete at SEHA Gazprom league and EHF Cup in upcoming season.Vujovic talked for Balkan-Handball.com about possibility to sign two players – ex-RK Vardar goalkeeper Strahinja Milic and TOP scorer of Men’s U20 EHF EURO 2018, Slovenian left back Gregor Ocvirk.We want Milic, not only Zeleznicar, but a lot of teams in Europe. However, there is only one condition to realize that proffesional sport is hard work, blood and tears. This is the only way to make good results. He didn’t leave Skopje because of his qualities, but for non-proffesional approach. If someone told him to come after summer break with 15,20 less, and he came with 15 kilos more, this is disrespect to the club and people. He losing the most. I called him as 15-years old boy in NT of Serbia and Montenegro, following his entire career, I took him to Vardar after problems with RK Partizan. He has huge respect to me and I know that he is a good person. I would like to see him in Nis, that could help us a lot, but I don’t want to put any clausule in contract – said Vujovic and added his comment for RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko member, Ocvirk:He could be interesting signing for us, but we don’t want to make a player for Celje. We aren’t interested in one-year loan, as we want to get from him the best during his time in Nis. With his qualities, he could help also some other players to become better. Celje PL don’t count on him seriously in this moment. read more

ExBungie collective Moonshot Games announce Fallen Frontier 2D shooter

Posted on

first_imgWhen new games studio Moonshot Games set up shop it garnered the attention of the gaming press because three of the four-man team were ex-Bungie staff. The team formed in late 2009, and since then have been working on their first game which has been revealed this week.Sticking close to the roots of what Bungie are best known for, Moonshot’s first game is called Fallen Frontier and it’s a shooter. More specifically it’s a 2D scrolling shooter (run and gun) set in a gritty sci-fi universe.AdChoices广告Moonshot is promising a big game with “vast interconnected worlds” and a playable character capable of doing a lot more than running and jumping around. There’s a grappling hook, multiple firearms to get to grips with, grenades, and special abilities to take advantage of. All this happening in quite a distinctive environment that certainly has a unique look and atmosphere about it.As for the back story to the game, Moonshot explain:Our story follows a jaded lawman from Earth, arriving at the frontier worlds of Alpha Centauri on a mission of vengeance. Events unfold as an engaging film noir style mystery, and the hero quickly comes to realize that in this brave new world, nothing is quite as it seems. Gameplay will take the form of a single-player campaign and multiplayer is catered for with co-op utilizing an intelligent split-screening if players get too far away from each other (as demonstrated in the video above).Fallen Frontier will be playable at PAX East which runs March 11-13 in Boston. Moonshot will be in booth 759 and look to be using it as an opportunity to get some feedback on the game before they put the finishing touches to it for release. What we don’t know yet is when the game will release and on what formats, but we suspect a downloadable game on the major consoles and through Steam.As has already started being pointed out on the Moonshot website. The game brings back memories of the 1996 title Abuse which can be seen in action below:Read more at Moonshot Gameslast_img read more

Archaeological Dig Near Quinhagak Provides a Look Into Ancient Yupik Culture

Posted on

first_imgStudents from Scotland excavating at the Araliq site. (Photo by Charles, KYUK – Bethel)At the site of an ancient village near Quinhagak, archaeologists race against erosion to uncover Yup’ik artifacts. What they find not only provides a look into the daily lives of Yup’ik ancestors, but also sheds light on a brutal period in the region’s history.Download AudioA cold breeze from the Bering Sea sweeps clouds across a tundra hill, upon which sits the ancient village of Araliq. Students and archaeologists are carefully scraping away layers of soil when something catches the attention of the crew.An ivory handled ul’uaq with a blade made of slate found by Anna Sloan. (Photo by Charles, KYUK – Bethel)The abandoned village of Araliq is about 5 miles south of Quinhagak, home of Warren Jones, President of Qanirtuuq Incorporated, the tribal corporation. There was a sense of urgency in 2009, Jones explains, when people first noticed erosion along the shoreline was exposing artifacts. Afraid that the site and its treasures would be lost for good, Jones contacted the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. 5 years later, he says the artifacts are bringing elders stories to life.“It’s like the elders are saying, in their own way, ‘we told you so.’ Now all the little stories are coming alive,” says Jones.Today there’s a show and tell of some items excavated from the site at a community building. Quinhagak elder John ‘Aatassuk’ Fox says this about a miniature carving of a human-like face.“That was made by a shaman. It’s not that way for no reason,” says Fox.Other elders agree that it might be the case. On display are many variations of household items, tools and jewelry. One item that stands out is a labret, a piece of carved wood or stone that Yup’ik people once wore by inserting them into piercings – men wore two, one along each jawbone while women wore one over their chin.Other discoveries point to a violent end for the village. Weapons were also found at the site along with a layer of ash, and skeletal remains of humans who seemed to have died in an attack. Rick Knecht is the lead archaeologist on the project. He says the site holds evidence of the warring period known in Yup’ik folklore as ‘the bow and arrow wars.’“There is a piece of armor that’s derived from Asian samurai armor where there’s these overlapping plates, except its made of antler sewn together. And here’s some more evidence of the ‘bow and arrow wars,’ this is one of the burned arrow points that we found in the ruins of the house. It was fired at somebody in anger. Roof sods and stuff absolutely riddled with those kinds of points. Seventy-five percent of the all the arrow points in that house were found in that upper layer,” says Knecht.Archeologist say it’s the first tangible evidence of the ‘bow and arrow wars’ or ‘anguyagpallratni,’ as the period is called in Yup’ik. Stories say Araliq residents were massacred in a ferocious attack by the old village of Qinaq, and the village was burned and renamed Araliq. Which means ‘lots of ash’ due to the amount of ash, or ‘araq’ in Yup’ik, which was present on site after the attack. While it’s clear that Araliq’s residents experienced war, archaeologists also discovered signs of everyday life. Ann Riordan was there on behalf of the Calista Elders Council. One of the biggest things that struck her is how similar, yet different, some of the artifacts are to modern tools and crafts used by Yup’ik people today.“There was an ul’uaq with a little indentation in it, but if you hold it, your thumb just fits in it beautifully. I’ve never seen one like it and it’s made out of stone and wood,” says Riordan.With climate change causing erosion across much of the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta, Riordan says other communities could carry out similar projects, but the clock is ticking.“There’s just never been anything this big in our area, and there’s lots and lots of old sites, many other old sites that are being washed away. Many more communities can have this experience,” says Riordan.Back at the dig site, University of Oregon graduate student Anna Sloan uncovers what instantly has everyone at the dig site smitten.It’s an ul’uaq, a woman’s cutting knife, with an ivory handle, beautifully carved in the likeness of a mythical sea monster known as the ‘Palrayak.’ It will travel to Scotland for study and preservation before being returned. Tribal leaders say they will eventually display it either in Bethel or Quinhagak for future generations.last_img read more

With No Budget Deal In Sight Lawmakers Hold Brief Technical Session

Posted on

first_imgWhen the Alaska State Legislature voted to take a recess, they set May 12 as the date they would reconvene in Juneau. But with no deal on a budget or Medicaid expansion, most lawmakers remained in Anchorage or in their home districts on Tuesday. APRN’s Alexandra Gutierrez reports from a sleepy Capitol, as the threat of government shutdown looms.Download Audio:With just a handful of legislators in the chambers, the House floor session lasted about ten minutes. The Senate lasted just five. Skipping right over the usual prayer and pledge of allegiance, leadership breezed through the agenda of what is known as a technical session — a meeting where a few lawmakers gavel in simply to keep the clock going.The only real action was a series of floor speeches offered by the minority members in attendance. Sitka Democrat Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins bemoaned the gridlock and the risk of a government shutdown if a deal is not reached.“I don’t think the Washington-D.C.-ification of our politics is a healthy trend,” said Kreiss-Tomkins. “It’s really distressing for me to hear the words ‘government shutdown’ in association with our state government. Normally, that’s something we hear about with the the federal government.”Meanwhile, Juneau Democrat Sam Kito chided the Legislature for relocating to Anchorage, as the sound of drills working on Capitol renovations interrupted him.Nobody mentioned anything about progress. The Legislature was supposed to gavel out of its regular session on April 19, but lawmakers have been at an impasse over the budget. With the state facing a multi-billion dollar deficit, lawmakers need a supermajority to balance it with funds from the rainy day account. But House Democrats have said they will not support that without Medicaid expansion and more money for education.After the session, House Speaker Mike Chenault told reporters that negotiations are ongoing. He said no bargaining points have been settled, and a divide still exists between the Democratic and Republican caucuses.“Just trying to find out what the minority needs to get out of here, and unfortunately that’s the exact opposite of what the Senate would like to see and what a number of House members would like to see,” said Chenault, a Nikiski Republican. “They don’t want to see the budget increase. And so, it’s a matter of trying to figure out a way to not increase the budget but still get us the three-quarter vote that we need.”In the meantime, no votes have been taken on any of the three special session agenda items: the budget, Medicaid expansion, and a sexual abuse prevention bill known as Erin’s Law. While the House already passed Erin’s Law in the regular session and continues to hold daily finance hearings, the Senate has held just two meetings since the governor called them into special session.At an afternoon press conference, Gov. Bill Walker said he was frustrated by the lack of progress made during the special session.“What I’m saying to the Legislature today is: Please do your job. Do it now,” said Walker. “Give us a budget that’s funded, accept Medicaid expansion, and pass Erin’s Law. Three things. You know, we can’t spend the entire summer working on these and we shouldn’t.”The next floor sessions are scheduled for Friday and Saturday this week, and are expected to be technical sessions barring any deal between lawmakers.If a compromise on the budget cannot be brokered, the state government is at risk of shutting down as soon as this summer.last_img read more

Give your peepers a break and watch this clever stop-motion music video, painstakingly created by hand without digital effects.The music video features the song “UnAmerican” by the indie rock band Said The Whale, and was made using 2,250 separate photo prints rephotographed over a period of 80 hours.Director Jonny Jansen filmed the band performing the song, and then printed out 2,250 of frames on paper with a laser printer. With his team of six people, Jansen then photographed each print to create the stop-motion video.AdChoices广告It was a tricky process.“We timed out the entire video as an animatic well before we started shooting,” Jansen wrote in a Reddit comment. “I also embedded the time code on the bottom right corner of each photo that synced up with our stop motion software. The problem was that the time code was so small we could barely read it so we almost lost our place a few times.”Photo Credit: Said The Whale/YouTubeAccording to Jansen, everything was planned in advance to make sure everything was timed properly. “For the longer traveling scenes like in the backyard, we measured out the distance and divided it by the amount of frames in the shot so we knew exactly how much to move the photo each time,” he wrote.The video has received more than 130,000 views on YouTube so far.More on Geek.com:Drew Feustel Says Goodbye to ISS With Stirring SongVans Launches NASA ‘Space Voyager’ CollectionWandersong’s Musical Might Goes Beyond Rhythm Gameslast_img read more

From there, visitors are whisked off on a high-speed adventure through the Forbidden Forest, where they’ll run into several Harry Potter magical creatures, including blast-ended skrewts, Cornish pixies, centaurs, and Fluffy, Hagrid’s infamous three-headed canine.Despite really long wait periods, fans were eager to stay for the ride. Some shared their experiences on Twitter and commented on how cool the roller coaster was, despite spending a lot of time in line. It looks like a lot of muggles will be heading to this “magical location” over the next few weeks.I waited 11 hours for Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure. Was it worth it? Yes! Best coaster in Orlando?

New Analysis of Bone Helps Explain Why Its So Strong

Posted on

first_img(Credit: Valentyna Chukhlyebova/Shutterstock)Superman was the Man of Steel. We can’t possibly be like him.But guess what? Ounce for ounce, our bones are stronger than steel.So why are people always breaking them? It’s because bones are also light and flexible, and the physics behind the speed and angle of blows make mincemeat of strength measures. That’s why a karate expert can break brick with his hand, but might also break a finger after slipping on ice. Chest compressions performed too fast on someone in cardiac arrest can break a rib. Done slowly, no issue.Bone’s strength and flexibility has amazed scientists for decades. A paper published today in Science gets to the marrow of why bone is so special.Coil All The Way DownBone is made primarily of collagen and a crystal mineral called carbonate-substituted hydroxyapatite. About a century ago, scientists discovered that bone is structured like rope, with multiple coils interwoven together. A single thread is pretty weak. But weave a bunch together and you have rope that can pull or suspend hundreds of pounds.Similarly, in bone, there’s a kind of helical motif that repeats no matter what level you’re looking at. This structure is repeated in bone layers from the macroscale to the nanoscale over nine to ten orders of magnitude — like a Russian nesting doll whose multiple figures each get smaller while looking mostly the same.Now, new tech advancements are letting researchers look at the very smallest components of bone. Researchers used scanning transmission electron microscopy to peer at tiny bone crystallites. After observing from multiple angles to construct 3-D images, they discovered that the rose-shaped crystals the saw at a resolution of 5 nanometers were also in a rope configuration — the exact same thing they saw at every other level of resolution. It’s an example of what scientists call hierarchical configuration.The structure, which has been seen at larger scales in bone before had never before been documented in such tiny structures. Researchers also observed the complex blend between crystallites and collagen at this scale.“Bone is indeed both strong and flexible, by virtue of its hierarchical organization,” says Molly M. Stevens, professor of biomedical materials and regenerative medicine at Imperial College London, and co-author of the paper. “We should learn from nature how to recapitulate multiple nested levels of organization.”The work could aid researchers in diverse fields involving bone, such as osteology, forensic medicine and archaeology.Though a marvel of engineering, bone still weakens over time. But there is a simple way to combat this and keep bones flexible. “Exercise,” Stevens says.last_img read more
