American man first to solo across Antarctica unaided

first_imgAn Oregon man became the first person to traverse Antarctica alone without any assistance on Wednesday, trekking across the polar continent in an epic 54-day journey that was previously deemed impossible.Colin O’Brady, of Portland, finished the bone-chilling, 930-mile (1,500-kilometer) journey as friends, family and fans tracked the endurance athlete’s progress in real time online.“I did it!” a tearful O’Brady said on a call to his family gathered in Portland for the holidays, according to his wife, Jenna Besaw.“It was an emotional call,” she said. “He seemed overwhelmed by love and gratitude, and he really wanted to say ‘Thank you’ to all of us.”O’Brady was sleeping near the finish line in Antarctica late Wednesday and could not immediately be reached for comment.The 33-year-old O’Brady documented his nearly entirely uphill journey — which he called The Impossible First — on his Instagram page . He wrote Wednesday that he covered the last roughly 80 miles (129 kilometers) in one big, impromptu final push to the finish line that took well over an entire day.“While the last 32 hours were some of the most challenging hours of my life, they have quite honestly been some of the best moments I have ever experienced,” O’Brady posted.The day before, he posted that he was “in the zone” and thought he could make it to the end in one go.“I’m listening to my body and taking care of the details to keep myself safe,” he wrote. “I called home and talked to my mom, sister and wife — I promised them I will stop when I need to.”Though others have traversed Antarctica, they either had assistance with reinforced supplies or kites that helped propel them forward.In 2016, British explorer Henry Worsley died attempting an unassisted solo trip across Antarctica, collapsing from exhaustion toward the end of the trek. Worsley’s friend and fellow English adventurer Louis Rudd is currently attempting an unaided solo in Worsley’s honor and was competing against O’Brady to be the first to do it.Besaw said O’Brady plans to stay on Antarctica until Rudd finishes his trek, hopefully in the next few days.“It’s a small club,” she joked. “His intention is to wait for Louis and have kind of a celebratory moment with the only other person on the planet to have accomplished this same thing.”O’Brady described in detail the ups and downs along the way since he began the trek on Nov. 3. He had to haul 375 pounds (170 kilograms) of gear largely uphill and over sastrugi, wave-like ridges created by wind.“Not only am I pulling my … sled all day, but I’m pulling it up and over thousands of these sastrugi speed bumps created by the violent wind,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Nov. 12. “It’s a frustrating process at times to say the least.”On Nov. 18, he wrote that he awoke to find his sled completely buried from an all-night blasting of wind and snow. That day he battled a 30 mph (48 kph) headwind for eight hours as he trudged along.“There were several times I considered stopping, putting my tent back up and calling it a day,” he wrote. “I wanted so badly to quit today as I was feeling exhausted and alone, but remembering all of the positivity that so many people have been sending, I took a deep breath and focused on maintaining forward progress one step at a time and managed to finish a full day.”On Day 37, or Dec. 9, O’Brady wrote about how much he’s changed, along with a selfie in which he looks almost in pain, snow gathered around his furry hat.“I’m no longer the same person I was when I left on the journey, can you see it in my face?” he wrote. “I’ve suffered, been deathly afraid, cold and alone. I’ve laughed and danced, cried tears of joy and been awestruck with love and inspiration.”Though O’Brady had initially thought he’d want a cheeseburger at the end of his nearly impossible journey, Besaw said her husband has been fantasizing about fresh fish and salad because he has mostly been eating freeze-dried foods.As for what’s next for O’Brady, who also has summited Mount Everest, Besaw said she’s not entirely sure.“We are just so in the moment celebrating this right now,” she said. “Then we’ll see what’s next on the horizon.”___Follow Amanda Lee Myers on Twitter at https://twitter.com/AmandaLeeAP In this photo provided by Colin O’Brady, of Portland., Ore., he speaks on the phone in Antarctica on Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018.

Alabama, Oregon, FSU, Ohio State are in playoff

first_imgOhio State wide receiver Evan Spencer celebrates following the Big Ten Conference championship NCAA college football game Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014, in Indianapolis. Ohio State defeated Wisconsin 59-0. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings)GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — The first College Football Playoff expanded the national championship race, made the regular season even more intriguing and produced a final four with major star power.Nick Saban’s No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Urban Meyer’s No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes at the Sugar Bowl.Marcus Mariota, this season’s Heisman Trophy front-runner, and second-seeded Oregon vs. Jameis Winston, last season’s Heisman Trophy winner, and defending national champion Florida State at the Rose Bowl.The winners will meet on Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.A new era, indeed, but with the same old problems: What is the best way to pick the teams and what should be the criteria?After six weeks of ranking teams, the selection committee shuffled its deck Sunday and dealt the Big 12 out of the playoff.“We’re smarting today,” Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said.TCU, which had been third in the rankings last week, ended up sixth. Big 12 co-champion Baylor moved up a spot to No. 5, but both were squeezed out by Ohio State, which won over the committee with a doozy of a closing statement in its conference championship game: a 59-0 victory against Wisconsin for the Big Ten title.“I would say that human nature is that the most recent thing that occurs, in this case the most-recent achievements, are the most impactful,” Bowslby. “Ohio State’s victory over Wisconsin was complete domination, and in that regard they played their way into the position they now enjoy.”The Big 12 doesn’t have one of those anymore. Its teams play only 12 games, compared to 13 for champions of the other Big Five conferences.Bowlsby and his conference athletic directors are meeting in New York this week and he anticipates the topic of how best to determine a champion will come up.“This will be a catalyst for discussion for sure,” Bowlsby said.The Big 12 can’t hold a championship game because it only has 10 teams, but the conference, along with the Atlantic Coast Conference, is trying to change that. The leagues have proposed getting rid of NCAA rules requiring a conference have 12 teams split into two divisions to play a title game.Holding one with 10 teams that play a nine-game round-robin schedule isn’t ideal because the game would always be a rematch, Bowlsby said.“I don’t know with 10 it’s something that we would necessarily do,” Bowlsby said. But conference expansion is a complicated issue that goes well beyond whether to hold a championship game.Bowlby cautioned about making a “knee-jerk” reaction to one year’s results. He said his faith in the process has not wavered.“We put a system in place and I helped to put it in place and I have confidence in that system. And I have confidence in the impeccable integrity of the people in that room,” he said.Baylor coach Art Briles wasn’t so sure.“I think the committee needs to be a little more regionalized with people that are associated with the south part of the United States,” he said. “I’m not sure there is a connection on there that is that familiar with the Big 12 Conference.”There were five active athletic directors on the 12-member committee, one from each of the Big Five conferences. The Big 12 was represented by West Virginia’s Oliver Luck. The Mountaineers have been in the Big 12 for three seasons.Maybe the most jarring part of Sunday’s unveiling was TCU dropping three spots from the last rankings. The Horned Frogs seemed to be secure at No. 3 last week, and then beat lowly Iowa State by 52 on Sunday.Long said TCU’s drop was more about the Buckeyes than the Frogs, but it highlighted a problem with weekly rankings. Commissioners initially leaned toward not having them when they first started putting the playoff together.While Long would emphasize every week the committee started with a clean slate, traditionally college football polls create a pecking order for teams that only gets disrupted by losses.The top six teams in last week’s rankings all won on Saturday. On Sunday, the teams were the same, but the order was very different. And it left many fans wondering why.Long said it was too soon to say what changes the committee would recommend to the commissioners. It’s safe to say the benefit of having weekly rankings will be addressed when Long’s crew reconvenes in a couple of months.“I think that the committee will look at this year, look at this season, look how the entire process went,” he said.Until then, let the playoff games begin.___Follow AP College Football Writer Ralph D.

Recycling ‘creating jobs’ in South Africa

first_img7 July 2011 An sizeable increase in countywide recycling has led to significant job creation and economic growth, says the South African Plastic Recycling Organisation (Sapro).“Recycling a ton of waste has twice the economic impact of burying it in the ground,” Sapro said in a statement on Monday.A survey done by Sapro and the SA Plastics Federation revealed there was a 32 percent increase in the tons of plastic recycled from 2006 to 2009.Recycling one additional ton of waste would pay R1 095 per ton more in salaries, produce R4 905 more in goods and services, and generate R1.3-million more in sales than disposing of it in a landfill.35 000 indirect jobsThe survey showed that 48.8 percent of all recyclable materials were obtained from “post-consumer sources” such as landfills.During those four years of the survey 28.9 percent of all plastic packaging was recycled. This meant 165 772 tons of packaging were recycled.There were between 200 and 220 plastics recycling manufacturers in SA. These companies employ 4 800 people and also create 35 000 indirect jobs that have an annual payroll of R250-million, Sapro said.General Manager for Sapro Annabe Pretorius said the most significant impacts of plastic recycling were job creation, the reduction of carbon footprints and the re-use of non-renewable resources.“Without this industry there would be more than 35 000 employees who would not have work and the industry is growing steadily with more and more manufacturers being created, which is creating more jobs.”Pretorius said consumers, recyclers and the industry as a whole have a huge role to play in helping the recycling statistics to increase.The survey showed that the number of environmentally conscious public was increasing and people were keen to get involved in some form of recycling products.Sapalast_img read more

The Intel Xeon Scalable Processor: Delivering Breakthrough Performance for the Data Center

first_imgWhether it’s my smartphone, my laptop, the IoT devices in my home, or even the car or plane I’m traveling in, the high demand for data-center-driven, connected intelligence is unquestionable.  When you think about all the different workloads being driven by everyone’s use of technology, it’s a bit overwhelming and a testament to how versatile and powerful and essential the data center has become to all of us.Purpose-built for the data center, Intel Xeon processors have been the engine behind that versatile use case delivery for decades.  As the sheer number of data center workloads and use cases have grown, generation after generation of Intel Xeon processors have consistently improved to perform all tasks thrown their way.  And as the growth and urgency for data center capability continues to rise, our latest Intel Xeon Scalable Processors extend our track record of performance leadership for the data center.While AMD attempts its return to the data center after a 5-year hiatus, we at Intel have been delivering leading server CPUs on an almost yearly cadence for more than a decade with a 41X1 performance gain over the past 10 generations. These gains are a direct result of our architecture and our decision to build our CPUs from the ground up for the datacenter.Opens in a new window(Click to enlarge image)The foundation to excelling on the widest variety of workloads – and what sets us apart from our competition – is our industry-leading socket and core performance. The Intel Xeon Scalable processor’s innovative Intel® Mesh Architecture combines with several new integrated platform capabilities, software optimizations and tools, and adjacent acceleration technologies to deliver breakthrough performance of 1.65X on average versus the previous generation, and up to 5X versus the current install base.2Meanwhile, AMD has glued together four desktop PC-targeted processors and called it a server CPU – an approach that can result in bottlenecked and jittery performance. Their approach may look good on some synthetic benchmarks, but for customers, what’s more important is how a system performs in real-world applications. Providing the scale required for today’s rapidly evolving workloads is serious business, and customers cannot afford to take chances with their data center infrastructure.The Intel Xeon Scalable processor excels on a wide spectrum of industry-standard benchmarks and real-world workloads as a result of hardware and software optimizations:Artificial Intelligence: Delivers 2.2X higher deep learning training vs. a 2-year old server, and up to 138X deep learning gains when combined with software optimizations for the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, enabling customers to train in hours vs. days on the same data set.3 Storage: Processes up to 5X more IOPS while reducing latency by up to 70 percent when combined with Intel® Optane™ SSDs and Intel SPDK, helping to improve response times for users accessing stored data.11 Cryptography & data compression: Boosts encryption performance and data protection with Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), for security without compromise, so customers don’t have to choose between security and performance; for example, Chinese communications company AsiaInfo saw a 1.29X boost in encryption performance vs. the previous generation.5 Machine Learning: Increases machine learning performance using Intel® AVX-512, allowing customers to build better and faster recommendation engines; for example, cloud service provider Tencent increased the performance of its InGame Purchase Machine Learning Platform* 1.57X vs. the previous generation.10 High-Performance Computing: Accelerates HPC workloads on average 1.63X faster and delivers 2X the FLOPS/clock with Intel® AVX-512 versus the previous generation, putting answers to bigger and more complex scientific and business problems in reach.8  For example, Altair RADIOSS increased performance for complex modeling and simulations by 1.61X vs. the previous generation.9 Cloud management: Delivers more cloud services in less time and facilitates a better cloud user experience with high core counts, increased memory bandwidth and Intel QAT; for example, cloud management company Neusoft increased transactions per second for its SaCa* Aclome* application by 1.5X vs. the previous generation.4center_img The variety of today’s workloads and unpredictability of tomorrow’s workloads require data center CPUs to be execution experts across the board. Intel’s data center portfolio is equipped with the breadth rise up to the challenge.  Purpose-built for the data center, we have and will always continue to continuously innovate to deliver leading performance and solutions for our customers.For more information on the Intel Xeon Scalable platform, please visit www.intel.com/xeonscalable.Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.  For more information on the performance and system configuration please see #1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 at www.intel.com/xeonconfigs. Video transcoding: Increases video transcoding performance with increased core count and Intel AVX-512, enabling a better user experience for video streaming; for example, Keepixo’s was able to transcode up to 55% more live HD Internet TV services with its Genova Live* application vs. the previous generation.12 Database: Increases database throughput when running optimized software such as IBM DB2 (1.47X improvement vs. the previous generation6) or Aerospike Database (4X improvement vs. two generations ago7), allowing customers to reduce the size of their database clusters, which saves costs. Virtualization: Operates up to 4.2X more virtual machines (VMs) and achieves up to 65% better TCO versus a four-year-old system, allowing data center operators to deliver more capacity in the same space footprint.13last_img read more

Corini: ‘Brescia need a result’

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview. The Rondinelle sit 18th in the table with no wins from their last five games, narrowly losing to Inter in midweek, and Corini is under no illusions that they need to take something from the game against Verona. “There’s still bitterness over the defeat [to Inter], but like I said to the lads, it was a very good performance. However, we need to work on how to finish and how to defend. The performance, accompanied by improvements, can turn into results,” said the coach in his press conference. Both Brescia and Verona won promotion to Serie A last season, and Corini was full of praise for his opposite number. “I have decided my approach to the game, against a side that’s doing well. I congratulate [Verona boss Ivan] Juric on his work for this season. “Points are always imperative, then inside the game there are so many more moments to understand.”last_img read more

Anil Kapoor slams heroes using steroids to acquire toned body

first_imgThe evergreen star of Bollywood — Anil Kapoor — is a fitness freak and he treats a gymnasium as a temple, the actor said sharing the secret of his youthfulness.While sharing his fitness secrets, Anil also took a dig at the stars who depended on steroids to show off their muscles.Headlines Today captured the macho brigade from Shootout at Wadala as it thronged a gym launch in Mumbai. From Tusshar Kapoor to Ronit Roy and Sonu Sood, Bollywood’s muscle pumping men made an inspiring sight. As Anil talked of fitness, he undoubtedly was the centre of attention for obvious reasons.Asked about the secret behind his thirty-plus looks and pat came his reply: “Gym mera mandir hai.”Thanks to rigorous workouts, Anil boasts of sporting the real stuff and smartly takes a jibe at B-town’s fake brigade.”Woh computer pe jaake apni six-pack bana lete hain aur yeh toh bada aasan hai. Jo unke thode bahut jo problem areas hote hain woh computer chupa deta hai. Toh aisa joh hai, main soch raha hoon ki main bhi karoon,” the star said sarcastically.Taking off his shades and caressing his face, Mr India said, “Mere jo muscles hain, woh sab yahan hain, mere paas acting ka muscle hai.”Anil named Akshay Kumar among some of the fit actors of Bollywood whom he admired.”Fitness ke baare mein, mujhe Akshay Kumar bahut fit lagte hain. Mujhe nahin lagta unhone kabhi bhi steroids liye hain,” he said.While Anil was all for naturally acquired physique, there were also other stars in Bollywood whom he looked up to as he appreciated the bodies of Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip Kumar.advertisementlast_img read more
