Delray’s Coco Gauff, 15, Becomes Youngest Title Holder Since 2004

first_imgHowever, Gauff regrouped early on and grabbed a 5-0 lead.Ostapenko saved two match points and rallied back for 2-5, but Gauff took advantage on her third match point and surged ahead once again.Gauff’s ranking will rise from 110th to around 70th, which means that she will not need to go through qualifying or to get a wildcard in order to earn a place at tennis’ next major, January’s Australian Open.She told the crowd, “One of the biggest thank yous goes to you guys. Thank you for your constant support this week. It’s been an amazing week and I hope to come back in the future.” Coco Gauff, the 15-year-old tennis phenom from Delray Beach, became the youngest Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) winner since Nicole Vaidisova in 2004, on Sunday.The local teen defeated 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 in Linz, Austria.Gauff lost during the qualifying rounds but made the tournament’s main draw when another player pulled out due to an injury.She then went on to reach her first quarterfinal, grab her first top-10 win and her first title.“I’ll definitely remember this moment for the rest of my life,” she told the crowd.Gauff collected a check of $43,000 for the match.Ostapenko seemed to have momentum heading into the final set Sunday.We knew this would just be a matter of time…@CocoGauff wins her first singles title at the age of 15 : @WTA pic.twitter.com/C98skKS6gl— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) October 13, 2019last_img read more

Willian offers to play without contract if Premier is extended

first_imgIt is not the only case that would occur at Chelsea since Pedro Rodríguez, Willy Caballero, Olivier Giroud and Van Ginkel they are free from June 30 to sign with any club. Unsuccessful negotiations for renewalWillian He has always felt very comfortable in London, for this reason his intention was to continue playing with the shirt in the Chelsea. At 31, the idea of ​​the extreme was to sign a contract for three seasons but the blue entity, through Marina Granovskaia, put on the table a two-year offer and a reduction in its emoluments. Both positions are now far apart.The Brazilian knows that they have a good sign and Tottenham Y Arsenal (both from London) would not see his arrival as bad eyes. He also linked the international with the Barcelona in the past and depending on how the market evolves, interest can be retaken. Even the Juventus, always very ready to sign free players, she would not rule out making an offer to the player either. The Premier League announced that it will not resume the competition until at least April 30. At first, the competition had stopped until April 4, but the advance of the coronavirus has caused the English authorities have decided to extend the postponement. Which makes it almost impossible for it to end before June 1, as stipulated by the English Federation, and it may last until July.center_img In this situation there are many footballers who end their contract on June 30. One of them is Willian, Chelsea footballer. The Brazilian, before the events that may arise, expressed his position in a Facebook chat in the middle Interactive Sport: “If I had to play on those dates, in these months, I think that nor would it be a problem for me to finish the league in a way that was true to the clubas they always were with me. “William would not mind playing without a contract with Chelsea during the month of July for loyalty to the club that signed him in January 2013, from Shakhtar.” But without a doubt, as always, I will always be ready to give the best to my club, regardless of my contractual situation. I honestly think my contract ends in July. But it is clear that this is not a certainty, we do not know what can happen, “said Willian.last_img read more

Beatton River Campground closed due to vandalism

first_imgThe Regional District is transferring the Beatton River Campground back to Crown land.This means the park will remain closed to the public, until the Province’s Integrated Land Resource Management Bureau decides what to do with it.Chair of the Peace River Regional District, Karen Goodings, says the park was being vandalized, and the district couldn’t keep maintaining it. – Advertisement -[asset|aid=1464|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=e5db39e009ab53f5b7a7850319fbcb35-Goodings park 1_1_Pub.mp3] The Regional District has to keep the park closed during the transfer process. Trenches are dug across the road, and a sign is posted indicating the park is closed. Goodings says it was the Regional District’s last resort.

The International Space Station has found its scientific calling

first_img The International Space Station (ISS) has never been known as a hotbed of science, even though the United States and partner nations spent more than $100 billion to build it. Inside its cramped bays, astronauts study the biological effects of microgravity, and a few astrophysical experiments are mounted to its exterior. But 2 decades after it started to take shape, the ISS has finally found a scientific calling: looking down at its home planet.The ISS is now home to five instruments that observe Earth, with two more set to join this year. One, NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 (OCO-3), was scheduled for launch this week from Cape Canaveral, Florida, aboard a routine resupply mission. Its launch marks a political victory: President Donald Trump has proposed canceling OCO-3 several times, only to be rebuffed each time by Congress. It also marks a victory of expedience over perfection.The ISS is not the ideal platform for OCO-3, which was built to fly on a stand-alone satellite. In fact, “It’s probably not the perfect platform for almost anything,” says Michael Freilich, who led NASA’s earth science division in Washington, D.C. for 12 years until his retirement in February. “It’s big. It flexes. It travels around in a cloud of contaminants.” And, most important, its orbit misses the poles and revisits sites at a different time each day. But compared with launching a satellite, mounting the instrument on the ISS is vastly cheaper: At $110 million, OCO-3 costs a quarter as much as OCO-2, which launched as a stand-alone mission in 2014. The International Space Station has found its scientific calling The savings have helped NASA preserve the breadth of its earth science missions, after two spectacular launch failures: the loss of the original OCO satellite, which crashed into the Indian Ocean in 2009, and the 2011 demise of Glory, meant to track atmospheric particles. Although Freilich marshaled support to build OCO-2, costs doubled for several other planned satellites, putting smaller missions in jeopardy.Around this time, Japan added a module to the ISS. Its flat terrace, jutting off its human-habitable module, was a good perch for 10 plug-and-play instruments. If putting Earth-observing instruments there would let NASA get much of the science for a fraction of the cost, that seemed like a good deal, Freilich says. “Everybody benefits. [NASA’s human program] gets to show the utility of the station,” while the earth science division flies more experiments.OCO-3 will be the third prominent NASA mission to be mounted on the Japanese module within the past year. Ecostress, attached in July 2018, measures the heat given off by plants to gauge the impact of heat waves and drought. The Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI), launched in December 2018, uses a laser to probe the height of tree canopies and understories. Later this year, a Japanese hyperspectral imager that can detect land use and forest type will take a fourth spot. Other instruments mounted elsewhere on the ISS in the past 2 years measure lightning, incoming sunlight, and ozone.Like OCO-2, OCO-3 carries a spectrometer that spies on wavelengths of light absorbed by carbon dioxide (CO2), providing a count of all CO2 molecules on a path from the ISS to the surface. Based on how CO2 concentrations vary from place to place, the missions can map some emission sources along with absorption by plants. But the measurements are difficult given the vast background of CO2 already in the atmosphere.At first the OCO-3 team wasn’t thrilled to end up on the ISS, says Annmarie Eldering, the mission’s project scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. But they came to see advantages. The erratic timing of its observations will make it challenging for OCO-3 to infer trends over weeks or months but will allow the instrument to explore how plant carbon emissions vary over the course of the day. “That’s going to be very useful,” Eldering says, especially when combined with measurements taken simultaneously by GEDI and Ecostress.OCO-3’s angled perch on the ISS also required a pivoting mount to allow it to see straight down. By pivoting, it can map CO2 over large regions, roughly the size of the Los Angeles, California, basin, during a single pass. Such regional maps could capture emissions from local sources such as cities and industry, says Christopher O’Dell, an atmospheric scientist at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, and enable OCO-3 to test the promise of verifying CO2 cuts from space. “That’s the goal,” O’Dell says. “We don’t know if that’s possible.”The ISS has one key constraint: space. After 3 years, OCO-3 is likely to be displaced on the Japanese module. NASA and Japan are already talking about what will go next to take its slot, Eldering says. Afterward, she says, “They will take us off and burn us up in the atmosphere.”Yet the promise of a space-based platform for making multiple simultaneous measurements of Earth at lower cost will live on. Rudranarayan Mukherjee, a JPL engineer, is developing a concept called the Science Station: a robotic mini–space station with trusses and a robotic arm that could host a dozen Earth-observing instruments in low orbit. The space station, he says, “has shown the benefit of having a platform in lower Earth orbit that’s a shared resource.” NASA hasn’t yet committed to the concept, he says. But he adds, “People can instantly see, yeah, I could see how that could work.” By Paul VoosenMay. 2, 2019 , 12:05 PM Earth-observing instruments roost on a platform attached to a Japanese module.
