Ohio State mens soccer team looks to secure Big Ten title in

Maryland midfielder Mael Corboz (8) and OSU senior midfielder Kyle Culbertson (3) struggle over the ball during a game at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Oct. 31. OSU won 1-0. Credit: Amanda Etchison | Editor in ChiefThe Ohio State men’s soccer team will play for the Big Ten title against its biggest conference rival in the regular-season finale on Wednesday, when the Buckeyes are set to host Michigan at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.The game against Michigan (8-4-4, 3-2-2) will arguably be the biggest game of the season for OSU (10-5-2, 4-2-1) because it will play a major role in determining who takes away the regular-season Big Ten title.“Our coach has been telling us all season to just take it one game at a time,” junior forward Yaw Amankwa said. “We look forward to the next game and will prepare the same way. It’s just another game and we will do whatever we can to win.”OSU started off the season in dismal fashion, notching just two wins in seven games. But things changed halfway through the season for the Scarlet and Gray, as it rattled off a 10-game unbeaten streak to leap to the top of the conference standings. “We worked so hard to get here,” Amankwa said. “At the beginning of the season no one thought we could do it and it just feels good to prove people wrong.”The Buckeyes sit at No. 1 in the Big Ten standings with 13 points, followed by Rutgers and Northwestern with 12 points each. Michigan sits in fourth place but still with a chance to grab the top seed with 11 points. Losses by OSU, Rutgers and Northwestern would give the Wolverines the crown.Rutgers is set to face Maryland on Wednesday, while Northwestern is scheduled to take on Wisconsin. The Scarlet Knights would win the conference with a win and OSU loss, as they hold the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Wildcats.Rutgers was able to slash OSU’s win streak on Oct. 25, putting the Scarlet Knights at No. 1 in the conference. The Scarlet and Gray bounced back on Saturday, however, defeating Maryland and jumping right back up to the top spot in the standings.The Buckeyes plan to keep that momentum going against Michigan to claim the Big Ten title.“To be in the position Wednesday night to play for the championship is great,” OSU coach John Bluem said. “But you got to win the game, and so we’ll prepare for the game like we’ve prepared for games all year long, and we’ll try to do the same things.”The Buckeyes hope to defeat Michigan on Wednesday, not only to claim the Big Ten title but also to have a favorable matchup in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.“We hope to finish strong and win on Wednesday night, and we’re going to hope to get a good seed so we get to play a quarterfinal game here at home,” Bluem said. “But it’s one game at a time.”The top four seeds in the conference play home quarterfinal games. The Buckeyes have clinched a top-four spot as they hold the tiebreaker with current No. 5 seed Indiana, which can tie OSU’s 13 points with a win and OSU loss. The Buckeyes defeated the Hoosiers in Bloomington, Indiana, on Oct. 10, 1-0.A peek at MichiganMichigan will be entering Wednesday’s match coming off a 1-0 shutout victory against in-state rival Michigan State.Freshmen midfielder Francis Atuahene, who leads the Big Ten in shots per game, has paced Michigan this season with 10 goals and three assists, followed by redshirt senior midfielder Colin McAtee with five goals and two assists. Senior forward William Mellors-Blair has chipped in three goals and four helpers.In goal, sophomore goalkeeper Evan Louro has played a total of 1,533 minutes and leads the conference in save percentage with a mark of .821. His goals-against average of .70 is also tops in the Big Ten.Awards keep comingFor the third time during OSU’s surprise season, its players have swept the Big Ten weekly awards.After netting a game-winning goal against Maryland last week, Amankwa was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career. The junior college transfer, who is in his first season with the Buckeyes, has a pair of goals and two assists on the year.Senior goalkeeper Chris Froschauer’s suffocating senior season continues. After picking up his conference-leading eighth clean sheet against the Terrapins last week, the transfer from Dayton earned his fourth Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award.Froschauer — who saved five shots against Maryland to improve his save percentage to .808, second in the Big Ten — is the fourth player in conference history to win the award four times in one season.Overall, there have been seven times a Buckeye has won a weekly award this fall.What’s nextThe Buckeyes will host their first opponent in the Big Ten tournament on Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The time and opponent will be determined after Wednesday’s slate of games. read more

Mexico boss hails his sides bravery following shock win over Germany

first_imgMexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio has hailed the bravery of his side as they produced a shock victory over defending world champions Germany on SundayPSV striker Hirving Lozano finished off a superb counter-attack to score a close-range finish in the 35th minute of the encounter to give Mexico the lead at the Luzhniki Stadium.Toni Kroos almost scored an equaliser for Germany from a free-kick, but the Tri held on to secure a famous win.Speaking after the match, Osorio revealed that he had planned a long time ago to expose Germany’s weak points.“We had plans six months ago to have two quick players on the wings,” he said, according to the Irish Times.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“We chose Hirving [Lozano, the game’s only goalscorer], our quickest player, and Miguel Layún, an offensive midfield player.“In the first half, we managed today to hit them on the counter many times. We could have scored earlier. With all due respect, we were superior to them.“In the second half, they attacked more and they made the substitutions they tend to make. We had prepared for the use of Mario Gomez in attack. We practised defending with four defenders and three players up front and that was how we almost scored a second goal. I’m very satisfied with what we did.“For the players today the phrase was to play for the love of winning not the fear of losing. And that is exactly what they did. They played with real bravery.”Mexico will next play South Korea on Saturday in Rostov-on-Don in Group F.last_img read more

Listen Inside Dawn Ostroffs Last Days at Conde Nast Before Seguing to

first_img Popular on Variety Brands like Vogue, GQ and Architectural Digest are best known as classic magazine brands. But to a new generation of consumers, they’re being redefined as video destinations, too.Expanding the scope of established media brands is Job One for Dawn Ostroff, who has just been named chief content officer for Spotify. She moves to the music streaming giant after seven years as CEO of Conde Nast Entertainment, where she’s been entrusted with turning print titles into multimedia machines. She made considerable progress on that front during her Conde Nast tenure, as she explained in the latest episode of the Variety podcast Strictly Business (recorded earlier this month before her move to Spotify was announced).“The digital business for us is a real business, it’s been profitable for a few years,” Ostroff said. “It’s really a big part of the future of the company. There is no doubt for our company the digital video business is really a sound business model that has a huge amount of upside for us.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

But as she found out after taking the job at Conde Nast in 2011, programming for digital platforms like YouTube and Snapchat is a very different proposition than primetime TV.“It really was eye-opening to understand the way in which we make the content for the digital space has nothing to do with the way we create television ideas,” she recalled.Ostroff has heard the same old sob story in the digital content space about fighting over the advertising-revenue scraps that Facebook and Google leave behind, but she sees plenty available money in the marketplace. She credits Conde Nast for instilling a sense of financial discipline in her that digital-native ventures looking to scale at all costs may have missed. “We didn’t have the luxury of that. We were funded by our parent company,” Ostroff said. “Our mandate was to scale and be profitable at the same time. So we really had to look at our business model very differently.”Putting brands like Vogue and Glamour in a TV setting was Ostroff’s way of capitalizing on a missed opportunity Conde Nast should have seized long before she got to the company.“We have brands that never became cable networks and, if you look back, they probably should have been and they probably would have been very successful given the verticals that all these brands play in,” said Ostroff. “We have an opportunity to leapfrog over what was missed, which was cable, and create those kind of verticals and channels in the digital space.”Listen to the full podcast below.last_img read more

New pulsar discovered during a search for a companion to a lowmass

first_img © 2018 Phys.org An international team of astronomers has serendipitously detected a new pulsar during a search for neutron star companions to low-mass white dwarfs conducted with the use of the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in Green Bank, West Virginia. The discovery is reported in a paper published June 15 on arXiv.org. Explore further More information: A Serendipitous Pulsar Discovery in a Search for a Companion to a Low-Mass White Dwarf, arXiv:1806.05889 [astro-ph.SR] arxiv.org/abs/1806.05889AbstractWe report the discovery of a previously unidentified pulsar as part of a radio campaign to identify neutron star companions to low-mass white dwarfs (LMWDs) using the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT). PSR J0802-0955, which is coincident with the position of a WD with a mass of 0.2 solar masses, has a pulse period of 571 ms. Because of its relatively long pulse period, the lack of radial velocity (RV) variations in the radio data, and GBT’s large beam size at the observing frequency of 340 MHz, we conclude that PSR J0802-0955 is unassociated with the LMWD at roughly the same position and distance.

Characteristics of PSR J0802−0955. Credit: Andrews et al., 2018. Pulsars are highly magnetized rotating neutron star or white dwarf that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation. This radiation has a regular periodicity, usually detected in the form of short bursts of radio emission. In general, pulsars are found by using large radio telescopes. So far, thousand of these objects has been detected.Recently, a group of researchers led by Jeff J. Andrews of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas in Greece, has employed GBT for radio observations focused on finding neutron stars accompanying low-mass white dwarfs. The observational campaign, which studied stars in the Extremely Low Mass White Dwarf (ELM WD) survey, resulted in the detection of a previously unidentified pulsar with a relatively long pulse period. The newly found object received designation PSR J0802−0955.”We report the discovery of a previously unidentified pulsar as part of a radio campaign to identify neutron star companions to low-mass white dwarfs (LMWDs) using the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT). (…) To search for pulsar companions to LMWDs identified in the Extremely Low Mass WD survey, we engaged in a radio wave follow-up campaign using the GBT,” the paper reads.According to the study, PSR J0802−0955 has a spin period of about 571 milliseconds and a dispersion measure of approximately 69.4 light years/cm3. The pulsar was found coincident with the position of a white dwarf star with a mass of 0.2 solar masses, known as SDSS J080250.13−095549.8.However, the researchers concluded that the newly detected object is an isolated pulsar. They noted that relatively long pulse period of PSR J0802−0955, the lack of radial velocity variations in the radio data, and GBT’s large beam size at the observing frequency of 340 MHz, indicate that this pulsar is unassociated with SDSS J080250.13−095549.8 at roughly the same position and distance.”PSR J0802−0955 shows a stable pulse period with no Doppler variations down to a precision of about 10−6 seconds for individual 35-minute subdivisions. Based on the optical radial velocity curve from the LMWD, a putative 1.4 solar mass neutron star companion would show modulations to the spin period of about 10−4 seconds over the length of our observation. We therefore conclude that PSR J0802−0955 is most likely an isolated, field pulsar,” the scientists wrote in the paper.Hence, PSR J0802−0955 is another identified object of the ELM WD survey, which seeks low-mass white dwarfs in binary systems. LMWDs are typically found in binary systems as the universe is not old enough to form them through single-star evolution. Studies show that while most LMWD companions are white dwarfs, some may be neutron stars. Astronomers observe unprecedented detail in pulsar 6,500 light-years from Earthlast_img read more
