Take a look inside the new Gen2 Formula E car

first_img Trending Videos See More Videos For one thing, the newboy is locked in for at least the next three seasons. For another, it marks the first time drivers and teams will run one car for the full duration of a race, bringing to an end the distinctive albeit awkward mid-race car swaps. Formula E even paid tribute to this outgoing concept in another vid.So, what’s actually involved in the new SRT05e? Well a new aero kit for starters, which incorporates a whopping new rear diffuser, Le Mans prototype-inspired front wheel coverage, a split rear spoiler, and the HALO driver head protection device.Significantly, the more aero-savvy Gen2, which sits on a new 3,100-mm wheelbase from Dallara, is also longer, narrower and shorter than the model it replaces, and runs on bespoke 18-inch wheels.The “future of racing”, which made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, will continue to be produced by Spark Racing Technologies, but now features a new McLaren Applied Technologies battery after four seasons with an example produced by Williams Advanced Engineering.The new powertrain means maximum power has also increased from 200 kW (268 hp) to 250 kW (335 hp),while ‘Race Mode’ has been given a bump from 180 kW (241 hp) to 200 kW (268 hp).Top speed is increased to 250 km/h, while zero-to-100 km/h is an impressive 2.8 seconds. If you want to see how the SRT05e compares with the outgoing Spark-Renault SRT_01E, Formula E’s got you covered there too. No doubt series’ CEO Alejandro Agag will be keen for Formula E’s first Middle East race to focus on the brand-new car and the seven female drivers on-hand for testing in the newly ‘progressive’ Riyadh – including Sauber Formula 1 test driver Tatiana Calderon, ex-IndyCar racer Simona de Silvestro, and IMSA class front-runner, Katherine Legge – rather than…well, other fairly high-profile news items in the past couple of weeks… COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS RELATED TAGSBuickNon-LuxuryNew VehiclesNon-Luxury Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 The Formula E Gen2 race car.  Handout / FIA Buy It!

Terms of the deal were not announced.Intel has been scaling back its wearables business for some time, ending development of its own smart glasses and other products.North, formerly known as Thalmic Labs, has raised more than $140 million to date, with Intel Capital an existing investor. Stephen Lake, co-founder and CEO, said: “Intel has been deeply supportive of North since early on. This deal highlights their ongoing commitment both to us and the future of innovation in this emerging category.”The deal will give the wearables company nearly 650 patents and patent applications by the end of the year, making it the holder of “one of the most robust smart glasses portfolios in the world”.It was reported in November that North had secured a $24 million investment from the government of Canada to be used building out its manufacturing capabilities in its home town of Kitchener-Waterloo.North is currently ramping activity for its Focus glasses, which include a transparent, holographic display that only the wearer can see.The $999 glasses are custom built and require a trip to a showroom in either Brooklyn or Toronto.

Four gunmen sought in deadly 15-second attack at party near Rutgers University

first_imgkali9/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.) — All it took was 15 seconds for four gunmen to kill two people and injure six others at a house party near Rutgers University, a surveillance video of the attack shows.New Brunswick police released the video of the shooting that unfolded early Sunday outside a house party just two blocks from the south side of the Rutgers campus.The footage shows a car pulling up to a house at 1:18 a.m. and four gunmen jumping out with guns blazing and aimed at about 100 people gathered outside the residence, where a birthday party was taking place.In just 15 seconds, more than two dozen shots were fired before the team of gun-wielding perpetrators got back in the car and sped off.Two men mortally wounded in the shooting were taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where they were pronounced dead. The six other people who suffered bullet wounds were taken to multiple hospitals in the area.While many Rutgers students live in off-campus housing in the neighborhood where the shooting occurred, authorities said the investigation shows that no students or staff affiliated with Rutgers were injured in the shooting or had any affiliation with the targeted house party.Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the gunmen, who left the street littered with shell casings and casualties. As of Monday morning, no arrests had been made.Witnesses told ABC News station WABC in New York that prior to the shooting a fight broke out at the house the gunman appeared to target.Jacob Beacher, a Rutgers University student, who lives nearby, told WABC that following the eruption of gunfire, he rushed out of his residence to see wounded victims lying in the street.“I ran up to one young man and I’m saying, ‘I’m here man,’ and he’s gargling blood, so I flipped him over so he won’t choke or suffocate, checked for a pulse,” Beacher said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Jamaican gets 3 years in US prison for possession of child porn

first_imgSAUK COUNTY, Wisconsin (Jamaica Observer) — A 28-year-old Jamaican citizen was sentenced to three years in prison and another three on extended supervision after pleading no contest to a charge of possession of child pornography in a Wisconsin court yesterday.Jermayne Webley’s hard drives were found to contain videos and images of young boys engaged in sexual acts after police raided his home in May of last year. Webley admitted to his crime, according to Assistant District Attorney Rick Spoentgen, and struck a deal to get the state’s minimum sentence for such a charge.He was also required to pay US$2,000 in fines, register as a sex offender and have no contact with minors as part of the sentence.

Presenting his Medium Term Budget Policy Statement in Parliament in Cape Town on Tuesday, Gordhan said the foreign capital allowance for residents, which was last adjusted in 2006, would be increased from R2-million to R4-million, while the single discretionary allowance would be increased from R500 000 to R750 000. To improve access to domestic credit in the financing of local foreign direct investment, restrictions on the granting of local financial assistance to affected persons have been further liberalised, with the doing away of the 3:1 ratio. Among a number of proposed reforms to cut red tape relating to business transactions, is a plan to allow South African companies to invest in Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states through offshore intermediaries. Other proposals, which the South African Reserve Bank will soon provide more details on, include increasing the current R50-million limit for company applications to undertake outward investment, to R500-million. The Reserve Bank will also consider removing the 180-day rule requiring companies to convert their foreign exchange into rands. However, South African companies will still be required to repatriate export proceeds to South Africa. There is also a proposal to do away with the R250 000 limit on advance payments for imports, and another to allow South African companies to open foreign bank accounts for permissible purposes without prior approval, subject to reporting obligations. Also being considered is a plan to replace the current paper-based monitoring system for exports – through Form F178 – with a more efficient electronic system. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

11th World Cup soccer tournament: All eyes are on Argentina

Fifteen nations from,If this is June 1978, there must be football in the air. From the coffee fields of Brazil to oil-rich Iran, from industralized Germany to Third World’s Tunisia, from Europe, Asia and America all eyes are on Argentina, the scene of the eleventh World Cup soccer tournament. Fifteen nations from across the globe, “armies” bristling with zealous optimism are battling for honours in the four-yearly soccer jamboree that grips the world for nearly a month.Can ageing West Germany retain the cup that their superstar captain Franz Beckenbauer won for them at Munich in 1974? Can the Brazilians aspire to new levels of soccer magic? Will home advantage see the hosts through? Right from its inception in 1930 the game has set new levels of Latin American fanaticism.The Uruguayans, the hosts, in that inaugural year were celebrating a century of independence. Their opponents in the final were Argentina, old rivals from across the turgid, churning waters of the River Plate. Ten steamers were chartered to take the Argentinian fans across to Montevideo. People were packed abroad like cattle, but thousands were left behind.Brazil’s captain Rivelino (left) leaves Kasperczak of Polland behind on the way to goalThere were protest marches in the streets of Buenos Aires as they demanded more boats. Then, as the steamers left, thousands of fans lined the quayside chanting “Victory or Death”.Uruguay won 4-2, their last goal being scored by a one-armed reserve called Castro, and the country went delirious with joy. The brooding Argentinian supporters stormed the Uruguayan Consulate back in Buenos Aires, complaining of brutality and unfair refereeing, and police had to fire to disperse them. The World Cup had been launched….advertisementSince then it has been a kaleidoscope of contrasting styles and skills – a confrontation between the artists of Latin America and the methodical men of Europe, whose style and form can match the best blend of individual flair the Latin Americans can produce.In Argentina ’78, the odds are loaded against the iron men from West Germany, the holders. They are without superstars Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Mueller and Wolfgang Overath. Training matches and their first outing in the tournament – a goalless draw against Poland – indicate that the holders have slender chance of emulating Brazil, who have won the cup thrice.Can Argentina, playing at home in front of frenzied crowds vociferously rooting for them, pull it off? On six occasions out of ten World Cup championships held so far, the host nation has reached the final, and, of these, four have won. The Argentinians are temperamental players.They can be brilliant on a day and totally devoid of their basic skills on the next. The other temperamental team, the Italians, star-studded as they usually are, suffer from the big handicap of their top men not being able to play the same game on two successive days.This World Cup may lack the dynamism and artistry of Pele, Cruyff and Beckenbauer, but clearly, it is not devoid of soccer talent. Among other, Holland’s Rob Rensenbrink has risen as one of the outstanding wingers in the world.Brazil has never lacked the ability to produce brilliant footballers. Along with the 1970 World Cup veteran Roberto Rivehno, the Brazilian team boasts of a powerful forward-line with Reinaldo and Zico. The presence of Cerezo and Nelinho in the midfield and defense provides a balance which may once again win the championship for Brazil.The West Germans, though depleted without Beckenbauer, Mueller and Overath, still have Rainer Bonhof, the man who changed West Germany’s fortunes in 1974 and Sepp Maier, whose experiences in the 1970 and 1974 World Cup tournaments will surely be useful.The Argentina attack is again led by 23-year-old Mario Kempe. Four years ago, when he played for his country in West Germany, he provided entertaining football, making good use of his physique and speed. Since then, he has matured into a prolific goal-scorer which makes him fearsome to defenders and goalkeepers alike.THE JUNTA: WARNING WHISTLEArgentina’s military junta holds a veritable threat for soccer fans in the country.Two years ago, Gen Videla, after a successful coup, launched a crusade against terrorists by killing those persons who did not conform to the ethics of civilization. In the process, many people ‘disappeared’, and ‘why’ was a question, which no one dared to ask.Now, this malaise is spreading into the realm of sports. Only a few day before the start of the World Cup, the junta warned that soccer fans in Argentina are “likely to be shot on sight” if they fail to respond to army orders.advertisementIt appears, that the rulers in Argentina, not unmindful of the “Munich massacre” and recent bursts of terrorism in West Germany and Italy, are determined to have the tournament completed without any awkward incidents.The monteneros, the country’s urban guerillas have promised peace during the competition, but this has scarcely reassured the junta. The omnipresence of troops, with fixed bayonets, is evidence that the military rulers of Argentina have certain ideas about security, which may not be relaxed before the championship is over.last_img read more

A ShotClockByShotClock Guide To Duke vs Wisconsin

When Wisconsin plays Duke for the men’s college basketball championship on Monday night, the coin flip of a game will be decided by a series of countdowns. Each time one of the teams gains possession, it will have up to 35 seconds to shoot. The team that uses its allotted time — or eschews some of it — better than its opponent will win. Each team uses the shot clock differently, in ways that should make for many interesting games within the game. Here’s what to watch for:Early in the shot clock. Transition opportunities are the best opportunities in basketball. Teams get to attack the basket at a high pace, with more space and fewer defenders. The average Division I team is better in transition than it is overall, scoring 0.88 points per possession generally and 1.03 points per possession in transition.Both finalists execute really well in transition. Wisconsin scores 1.22 points per transition possession, according to Synergy Sports Technology stats. That’s fifth best in the country (of 351 teams in Division I). Duke ranks seventh, scoring 1.21 points per transition possession.But Duke pushes the ball, getting into transition much more than Wisconsin does. The Blue Devils were in transition in 18 percent of their offensive possessions, which puts them in the top 20 percent of Division I teams. Wisconsin ranks dead last, at 7 percent.1That’s broadly consistent with Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted tempo rankings (paywall): Wisconsin ranks 345th of 351 teams, while Duke ranks in the top third.Duke transition possessions could be a trouble spot for Wisconsin’s defense, which often wilts against the fast break. The Badgers are a pretty good defensive team in the half court, but below average in transition.In the middle of the shot clock. This isn’t as good as transition opportunities, but is a much better place for an offense to be than the dying seconds of the shot clock, because ball handlers have lots more options besides shooting.The middle of the shot clock — not transition, but with more than four seconds left — is the terrain where most of a typical basketball game is contested, and especially Wisconsin games. The Badgers ended 87 percent of their possessions in this middle ground, running half-court sets without the pressure of needing to shoot right away. That ranks third in Division I, behind Bucknell and Virginia. And they are very dangerous in these sets, scoring 1.05 points per possession — nearly 0.2 points better than the average team in this situation. That means Wisconsin’s half-court set is so good, it’s better than the average transition offense.Duke defends well against these kinds of shots, allowing 0.05 points per possession less than average — 38th best in Division I. But that’s unlikely to faze Wisconsin much, since it just played Kentucky. The Wildcats are the best in the country against half-court offenses shooting before the very end of the clock, allowing 0.16 fewer points per possession. Yet the Badgers beat Kentucky playing primarily in the half court.Duke’s offense also is really good in these bread-and-butter plays, ranking ninth in the country in efficiency. But it plays this style at a below-average rate, just 79 percent of the time.The final seconds of the clock. Teams try to avoid holding the ball this long. Short-clock offense is about as bad as transition offense is good. Teams average just 0.71 points per possession with no more than four seconds left on the shot clock. No wonder they do all they can to avoid the deadline pressure, facing the countdown on fewer than 4 percent of plays.For most of the season, Kentucky avoided these plays even more than the average team, and for good reason: The Wildcats are well above average at transition offense and a solid half-court team, but they stink late in the shot clock, scoring just 0.61 points per possession, well below average. Their drop-off in efficiency from the middle of the clock to those final seconds was among the biggest in Division I.2The 25th biggest drop-off among 351 teams. Yet they inexplicably milked the shot clock on a futile string of possessions late in their game against Wisconsin, contributing mightily to the Badgers’ win.Duke is as loath as Kentucky to let the clock tick down, but is far better when it does, scoring 0.91 points per possession. These are small sample sizes: Just 100 plays during Duke’s entire season occurred that late in the clock.Wisconsin has more experience living on the edge, getting near the end of the shot clock on 6 percent of its plays, in part because it plays so little transition O. But it’s not quite as efficient as Duke when it does. The Badgers should avoid letting the clock run down on Monday night, and not only because they’re so good with more time to work: Duke ranked 13th in the country in defending late-clock plays, allowing barely half a point per possession.Neil Paine contributed to this article.Correction: An earlier version of this article referred imprecisely to the difference between plays in the middle of the shot clock and short-clock plays. Plays with exactly four seconds left on the shot clock count as short-clock plays, not as plays in the middle of the clock. read more
