Portugal defender Bruno Alves maintains his team are “not interested” in Germany’s historic elimination from the 2018 World Cup but are rather concentrated on themselves.Germany were shamefully trumped out in the group stages of the Mundial tournament after a 2-0 defeat by Japan on Wednesday afternoon. European champions Portugal, however, finished second in their section to set up a clash with Uruguay in the last 16.But Alves has claimed that “there are no easy games” in the World Cup as Portugal are solely concentrating on what they can make out of the World Cup at this summer’s competition.“We have seen that in this World Cup there are no easy games. Germany going out is another clear indication of that,” Alves told reporters via Sportsmole.Ali Daei wouldn’t be upset if Ronaldo breaks his scoring record Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Iranian legend Ali Daei wouldn’t be upset to lose his record as international football’s all-time record scorer to the “great” Cristiano Ronaldo.“But this doesn’t change the fact that we’re 100% focused on Portugal.“We prepare every day for our games always believing that we can reach the next stage. Whatever happens to other teams is interesting for other people – people who analyse the results – but we’re not interested. We only care about Portugal.”Portugal won one and drew two of their three group matches this summer
The agent of Gianluigi Buffon insists that he is considered to be just as important as Neymar at Paris Saint-GermainThe legendary Italian goalkeeper opted to continue his playing career at PSG for at least another two seasons after leaving Juventus in June.And things got off to a bright start for Buffon in this newest chapter of his career by winning the Trophee des Champions at the weekend in his first ever competitive match for PSG after they thrashed AS Monaco 4-0 at Shenzhen in China.“Starting well is always a good thing in football. Anything can happen, but PSG are a great club for him,” Silvano Martina told RMC Sport, via Football-Italia.“They’re a very good team and they deserved to win the cup, which is always good for your CV.“I went for a coffee with him once and he told me he was happy to retire, before adding that he could’ve done well at another big club for a couple more years.”PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.After 17 years at Juventus, Buffon made the surprise decision to play his club football outside of Italy for the first time in his career at the age of 40.“How did PSG come about? I have a friend there, I sent him a message and he told me to go there right away,” said Martina.“For them, it was as important a deal as that for Neymar. Buffon felt the desire of the French club to have him in their team and he’s very fired up.“It’s as if he’s 10 years younger. They offered a two-year contract, while he only wanted to sign for a year: this proves their honesty. PSG had already wanted him in 2009.”Buffon will get his first taste of Ligue 1 this Sunday in PSG’s first game of the league campaign against Caen at the Parc Des Princes.
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is “happy” to see Cristiano Ronaldo open his goalscoring account for the club after netting a brace in Sunday’s 2-1 win over SassuoloAfter three games without a goal to his name, Ronaldo answered his critics on Sunday with both of Juventus’ goals to hand the Old Lady all three points.It means that Juventus are the only side to have won all four of their Serie A fixtures.And Allegri was certain that it was only a matter of time before Ronaldo would score for the Bianconeri.“He came very close in his first three games,” Allegri told the club website.Vidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“I think he rushed a couple of chances today – it looked like he was absolutely desperate to score.“Football has a way of evening things out and that was the story of the first goal, with the ball bouncing off the post and sitting up for him. The second goal was brilliant. I’m happy for him.“Sassuolo are a good side. They made it hard for us in the first half, but they dropped off a bit in the second half and we were able to tip the game in our favour.”Juventus will next face Valencia on Wednesday for their opening game of the Champions League group stages.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been omitted from Portugal once again for the upcoming fixtures with Italy and PolandPortugal manager Fernando Santos had previously left out Ronaldo for the last two international breaks in September and October to allow him to settle in at Juventus.However, Santos refused to discuss why Ronaldo will not be among them this time and instead wished him luck in winning a record sixth Ballon d’Or.“The only thing I will say about Ronaldo is that I hope he wins the Ballon d’Or award,” said Santos on Twitter.“It’s not just about Ronaldo, I have said that nobody is excluded,” said Santos. “It’s not worth creating a big fuss about it.”Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.The European champions will face Italy next Saturday in the UEFA Nations League before hosting Poland three days later.Portugal squad for Italy and Poland: Goalkeepers: Rui Patricio, Beto, Claudio RamosDefenders: Cedric Soares, Joao Cancelo, Jose Fonte, Luis Neto, Pepe, Ruben Dias, Mario Rui, Raphael GuerreiroMidfielders: André Gomes, Bruno Fernandes, Danilo Pereira, Joao Mario, Pizzi, Renato Sanches, Ruben Neves, William CarvalhoForwards: Bernardo Silva, Bruma, Gonçalo Guedes, Rafa, André Silva, Eder
The GOP-led Senate Armed Services Committee advanced its version of the fiscal 2020 National Defense Authorization Act Wednesday, authorizing $750 billion in defense spending while departing from the White House on how some DOD funding is allocated.The measure aligns with President Donald Trump’s overall fiscal 2020 defense request, but notably reduced from $164 billion to $75 billion his request for uncapped overseas contingency funds, according to a bill summary released Thursday.The committee authorized a base budget of $642.5 billion and $23.2 billion for Department of Energy national security programs. It also authorized $8.4 billion in defense-related spending.Military construction accounts were also authorized $3.6 billion to replenish funding that had been redirected toward a southern border barrier.Other authorizations included:An additional 7,700 troops and a 3.1% military pay raise$40 million for educational agencies supporting children of military families and $10 million for schools supporting severely disabled military children.Military privatized housing reforms, including pulling some funding from private contractors and redirecting it toward installation housing improvements.Approval to move forward with creating the administration’s proposed space force.$10 billion for 94 fifth-generation Lockheed-Martin F-35s, 16 more than the administration requested.$948 million for eight Boeing F-15EXs, matching the Air Force’s request.$24.1 billion to buy 12 new battleships matching shipbuilding funding for fiscal 2019.The NDAA process next moves to the House where it will mark up its own annual defense policy bill in early June. It then moves to a House-Senate conference the second week of June.ADC’s 2019 Defense Communities National Summit, June 10-12, features a keynote and a follow-up NDAA Q&A session Tues., June 11, “Are We Ready: The State of Our Defense Readiness,” with Armed Services Readiness subcommittee chairman John Garamendi (D-Calif.) and ranking member Doug Lamborn (R-Colo).

Comment Preview • The HP Omen X Desktop is for gamers on the edge 1 Review • HP’s PC gaming flagship turns PC gaming on its side The hardware in Metro Exodus’ menu system is practically life size on this monitor. Lori Grunin/CNET Gaming monitor manufacturers love to throw around the term “immersive” when referring to their products — the bigger and curvier it is, the louder the proclamations get. Well, no monitor to date can hold an immersive candle to the HP Omen X Emperium 65. It swallows you whole. I’m lucky it let me out long enough to get this written.It’s also $5,000 (about £3,830 or AU$7,000). So the most frequent question we get is “How is it better than a good 65-inch TV, which costs half as much?” The answer, at least for most people, is it’s not. But for a tiny subset of PC gamers, it’s more fun than a battle royale of monkeys.The Emperium was first announced at CES 2018 as part of Nvidia’s BFGD (Big Format Gaming Display) initiative, but HP is the only manufacturer from the group to have actually shipped a monitor. It feels like a Frankenstein’s monster of features: There’s a 65-inch Nvidia Shield smart HDR TV-slash-monitor that supports Nvidia’s G-Sync adaptive refresh technology and integrates Google Assistant. (So if you value your privacy, you may think of it as a personal-data-collecting portal of doom.) 22 Photos Mentioned Above HP Omen X CNET may get a commission from retail offers. HP Omen X News • HP Omen X 2S gaming laptop sports a second screen HP’s Omen X Emperium 65 and more gaming goodies come to CES 2019 See it Share your voice HP Nvidia $3,199 Gaming Accessories Monitors Tags Despite wanting to throw myself across it and plead with HP to let me keep it a while longer, it’s hard to recommend it as an actual purchase. Partly because pieces of it are bound to obsolesce within the next couple of years and partly because you’re probably better off spending less and putting the money you save into better-performing hardware and more games, at least until gaming figures out where it’s heading — the cloud, your phone, next-gen consoles or someplace as-yet unimagined.And she’ll have fun, fun, funConnected to a PC, the Emperium’s a jumbo-sized equivalent of a great 27-inch HDR (technically, HDR10) monitor like the Acer Predator X27, with similar specs but really, really big. I hooked the Emperium to a Falcon Northwest desktop equipped with an overclocked (to 4.9GHz) Intel Core i9-9900K and dual Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti cards. That’s pretty much the configuration you need to really appreciate all aspects of the Emperium simultaneously — the 4K, HDR and G-Sync.I didn’t see any artifacts, no matter what frame rate I threw at it, whether I went far beyond its native 120Hz (or 144Hz overclocked) or well below it — because 4K at ultra-everything including ray tracing still drops to unplayable frame rates. In this respect, it was one of the best G-Sync monitors I’ve used.While a 27-inch HDR monitor looks great, at 65 inches it really wows. The size alone ramps up Resident Evil 2 from scary-if-you-play-in-the-dark to leave-the-lights-on terrifying.Each game handles HDR differently. And because you’re looking at computer-generated graphics and not the real world depicted in movies, you don’t have the frame of reference to tell you whether a game’s colors look “correct” or the control you need to fine tune them. You just go with what appeals most and make sure the shadows aren’t so dark that you can find the object you’re looking for and won’t get ambushed by a mutant or a zombie. The otherworldly glowing reds and eye-searing brights in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice lend it that extra touch of surreality, so who cares if her face paint probably isn’t the correct shade of blue?The on-screen display. (Aside: Dear Google, can you please suggest “try searching for ‘how to make Google stop suggesting things'” instead? Thanks!) Lori Grunin/CNET I didn’t run a full suite of tests in the short time I had with the monitor, just enough to confirm that it hits the most important marks. In HDR mode it covers 97 percent of the P3 D6500 color gamut — that’s close to one of the best OLED TVs we’ve tested, which hits 98.4 percent (95 percent in SDR). It’s got a typical black level of 0.009 nits (minimum is 0.001). So it’s not OLED-level black, but it’s visibly impressive. It seems to overshoot peak brightness to roughly 1,100 nits and then gradually decline, outputting over 1,000 nits in 5 percent, 10 percent and 25 percent windows.The VA-IPS panel has 384-zone local dimming with no edge bleed that I could spot. It has typical off-axis viewing for the technology, so all but the most oblique angles look good.The soundbar that comes with the Emperium is an aesthetically pleasing, well-built and aurally balanced 2.1 system that fits snugly under the display and can be controlled by the Shield remote. But it connects to the monitor with a surprisingly low-end analog cable. It does have a DSP input.Enlarge ImageOne nice design touch is the automatic lighting strip and illuminated labels. Lori Grunin/CNET There’s a solid selection of connections on the Emperium:Four USB-A (two on each side)One DisplayPort 1.4Three HDMI 2.0 (1 ARC)SPDIFGigabit Ethernet802.11ac Wi-FiBluetoothYou should be able to connect peripherals, such as external storage or wired keyboard and mice via the USB ports, to use with the Shield — that’s what the menus imply. But I couldn’t get it to recognize any USB devices. Even if that’s just a bug, you can’t use the ports as a hub the way you can on a desktop monitor because there’s no upstream USB connection from the PC to the display.Nor did the monitor like our 5GHz network — it kept saying that the signal was weak and refusing to connect, even after I moved the monitor into the same room as the router. A keyboard, mouse and controller all connected through Bluetooth, but the controller especially tended to be too laggy, even for simply navigating Steam.Not ready for the futureIf you take the monitor capabilities out of the equation, the Emperium’s just a pretty good, overpriced Shield TV with the same annoying remote. All non-PC gaming, whether you’re using a console via HDMI or cloud via GeForce Now (GFN), is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and generally delivers the frame rate to match that, so you don’t need the refresh-rate versatility of the Emperium. Nor do you need a TV this high-end to play games over GFN. In fact, the broad tonal range of the display ends up emphasizing the artifacts — color contouring, desaturation and blockiness — of the compressed stream delivered by cloud-based games. GFN and the Google universe, including Android apps, Play games, streaming and video, adds value to the package, but you can get a box for $180 and attach it to a $2,500 OLED TV for the same capabilities. The sound bar should probably be optional.The Emperium offers fast refresh, but only connected to a PC with an Nvidia graphics card over DisplayPort. The HDMI connection is fixed at 60Hz for 4K. There’s a 1080p/120Hz option in the menu that I didn’t try, but HD on a 65-inch monitor has a pixel pitch you could drive a truck through (you sit much closer while gaming than you would just watching movies) and while it’s nice, it certainly isn’t worth five grand. 60Hz over HDMI is fine for now because console output is fixed there, too. But we’re expecting new consoles from Sony and Microsoft within the next couple of years, and you can bet they’ll have HDMI 2.1 connections to support variable or adaptive refresh technologies.So the Emperium won’t be able to take advantage of one of the most significant technology improvements to come to consoles in a while. And any gamer who’s going to plonk down this much for a monitor probably has a couple of consoles in addition to a power desktop, especially in the age of exclusives.It’s usually unwise to buy the first generation of anything — I’m looking at you, 5G and foldable phones — and while this is a good and polished one, the Emperium 65 is definitely a first-gen product.
2019 Acura NSX review: Hitting its stride Tags If at first you don’t succeed, recall ’em again.Honda has issued a recall for approximately 1.1 million Honda and Acura vehicles. The list is positively huge, spanning a wide variety of cars both new and old, in varying body styles. The full list can be seen at the bottom of this article.The issue stems from the airbags. All the vehicles mentioned in this recall were part of an earlier wave of Takata airbag inflator replacements. These vehicles were repaired with desiccated Takata inflators that were not subject to recall. Those replacements, however, were eventually deemed faulty as well, after Honda received a report of a person being injured by shrapnel from a replacement inflator. Enlarge ImageIf you’re not sure if your call falls under the recall or not, give your dealer a ring — they can help you out. Honda Thankfully, a remedy can be had quickly. Honda has replacement parts at the ready — this time, from alternative sources — so owners need only head to the dealership, where technicians will swap out the faulty parts. To give you an idea of the Takata scandal’s scope, Honda alone has had to deal with 21 million recalled Takata inflators across 12.9 million Honda and Acura vehicles.The desiccant, or moisture-absorbing material, is central to understanding this deadly defect. The first batch of airbag inflators that spurred the recall used ammonium nitrate to inflate the airbag but lacked a desiccant. Over time, exposure to humidity could cause the inflator to fail, shooting out shrapnel instead of inflating the airbag as intended. There have been both deaths and injuries linked to these parts, which Takata sold to a significant number of automakers. Takata offered replacement parts with desiccants, but that clearly did not resolve the issue in its entirety. Thankfully, these new replacement parts come from different suppliers altogether.Here’s the full list of vehicles included in this latest recall:2002-2003 Acura 3.2TL2003 Acura 3.2CL2004-2006, 2009-2014 Acura TL2013-2016 Acura ILX2003-2006 Acura MDX2007-2016 Acura RDX2010-2013 Acura ZDX2001-2007, 2009 Honda Accord2001-2005 Honda Civic2002-2007, 2010-2011 Honda CR-V2003-2011 Honda Element2007 Honda Fit2002-2004 Honda Odyssey2003-2008 Honda Pilot2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline Originally published March 12 at 7:42 a.m. PT.Update, at 1:54 p.m. PT: Clarified the underlying issue with Takata’s airbag inflators.

District leaders are somber about the surprise death of A.J. Cooper, a young political aspirant who was looking to run for the Ward 4 seat on the D.C. Council this spring.Cooper, the nephew of former D.C. Board of Education President Peggy Cooper Cafritz, was 34 when he died on Dec. 3. It has been reported that he died of a heart attack.Funeral arrangements have not been announced.A native Washingtonian, Cooper was the host of BET’s Teen Summit and served in the Marine Corps. He was a graduate of the University of Maryland and had worked as the policy director for the D.C. Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.In 2012, he ran for the D.C. Council as an independent. In the past year, he founded Freedom Farms, an initiative to support urban farming by training low-income residents about growing food and agriculture.Soon after D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4) was elected mayor on Nov. 4, Cooper announced his candidacy for her seat. D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray (D) said that Cooper “was a positive force and touched the lives of many.”D.C. Council member-elect Elissa Silverman (I-At Large), whom Cooper supported in the Nov. 4 general election, tweeted that Cooper “was a great progressive ally, activist and friend.” D.C. Council member Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6) said that Cooper was “a joy to be around.”“This is another very difficult loss for our city,” Wells said.D.C. Council member Kenyan McDuffie (D-Ward 5) talked about Cooper on a more personal basis.“I lost a friend and the District of Columbia lost a young activist, social entrepreneur, and above all, a public servant,” McDuffie said. “I will always remember A.J. Cooper for his selfless service to his neighborhood, his community, the District of Columbia and our country. I will miss him deeply.”

Now, two researchers from the University of Rochester propose that it is time to organise and focus on curiosity’s function, evolution, mechanism and development.“Curiosity is a long-standing problem that is fascinating but has been difficult to approach scientifically,” said study co-author Benjamin Hayden, assistant professor of brain and cognitive sciences.“But we felt that the field has recently managed to develop new formal and quantifiable techniques for studying curiosity and that it’s worth getting the word out,” he added. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Scientists have been taking notes about curiosity since the 19th century.Over time, studies have tried to differentiate curiosity by saying it is entirely intrinsically motivated (compared to information-seeking and risk-seeking). “But this type of definition runs into problems when determining the intrinsic motivation of babies, primates and other organisms that cannot communicate their inner world,” the authors noted.For their study, the authors used a working definition of curiosity “as a drive state for information” which can be observed in organisms as simple as nematode worms. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“When the information-seeking becomes active, it’s reasonable to start talking about it as a minimal form of curiosity,” Hayden added.“This definition will be hard for some people to swallow. But by looking at it from an evolutionary perspective, scientists can make rapid progress,” he noted.One question still up for debate is whether curiosity always carries benefits – whether immediately or in the future.“It’s agreed that information allows for better choices, but curiosity can lead animals to pursue stimuli that aren’t necessarily useful,” the study said. While increasing curiosity reduces uncertainty and makes for better choices on what to explore, the animals’ brains are also wired to reward us for learning new information, which can put us at different risks.The authors also note that the study of curiosity overlaps with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other attention disorders.The authors hope that in addition to the understanding how curiosity is affected by disease, the future will bring new information about how curiosity is controlled, how it differs between childhood and adulthood, and the link between curiosity and learning.Finally, the authors are also optimistic that scientists will eventually agree on a way to classify curiosity. The paper was published in the journal Neuron.
