Guardiola calls Premier League the toughest competition

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists the Premier League is the toughest competition in the world.The former Barcelona manager led Manchester City to the Premier League title last season, amassing a record amount of points (100), as the Citizens only lost two games all season in the league.City are looking to become the first team since Manchester United in 2009 to defend the League crown but Guardiola insists his team is under no illusion about the task they face.Speaking as the keynote speaker for Liverpool University’s annual Edgar Allison Peers Symposium on Wednesday evening, he said, according to Daily Mail:norwich city, manchester city, premier leagueReport: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“For the amount of games, for the weather, the referees saying play, play, play.“There are many contenders. No other country has that. It would be unfair to say that though.“There are many things in Germany and Spain that have better things than here. I am a better manager now than I was at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.“It’s the most unpredictable league I’ve been in. You watch Match of the Day. The people are crazy here compared to other countries and it’s good.”last_img read more

Chula Vista residents win battle over new car wash

That includes 12 vacuum stations in the parking lot.“The noise coming out of that is like an airplane revving up at Lindbergh Field it is so loud” says Wilson.She’s concerned about the noise, the traffic and most importantly her health, because she’s toxic sensitive. There used to be a gas station here and she says it could have contaminated the soil beneath it.“When I get hit with something like that, it closes up my throat, I can barely breathe, I ache in every part of my body and I just can’t function right.”Neil Capin, the owner of the proposed car wash, says he’s gone above and beyond to address these concerns. He’s willing to install a sound wall up, add vegetation and landscaping to soften the noise, and even open an hour later every day.City leaders gave the car wash a stamp of approval but challenges and appeals quickly followed. Tonight Chula Vista City Council voted 4-1 against the car wash’s construction.

Study suggests midmantle holds as much water as Earths oceans

first_img(Phys.org)—A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in Japan and Germany has found evidence that suggests the middle of Earth’s mantle holds as much water as the planet’s oceans. In their paper published on the open access site Science Advances, the group describes their theory and their experiments to try to prove them correct. © 2017 Phys.org Scientists discover why rocks flow slowly in Earth’s middle mantle Explore further This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Scientists are convinced that the uppermost part of the mantle and lower part closest to the core are relatively water free. This is because the materials they are made of can’t to store water very well. The layer in between (at 410 to 660 kilometers below the surface), however, has been a topic of debate, with some believing it is also nearly water free and others suggesting it could harbor massive amounts of water. This is because the mid-mantle is dominated by the minerals wadsleyite and ringwoodite, which are known to be able to hold a lot of water. In this new effort, the researchers sought to settle the debate by using logic and lab experiments.The team notes that prior research has shown that the viscosity of the middle zone of the mantle is lower than that of both the upper mantle and lower mantle. To figure out if the middle zone is holding water, the researchers used this information and conducted lab experiments meant to replicate such conditions. They created synthetic ringwoodite to represent the middle mantle and bridgmanite to represent material from the lower mantle. They then used a technique that involved measuring dislocation mobility to infer viscosity and then added water to the ringwoodite. They report that doing so reduced its viscosity and matched measurements taken of the real mantle—this suggests that the real-world middle mantle does, indeed, hold water. By adjusting the amount of water added to their synthetic mantle and calculating changes in viscosity, they were able to estimate how waterlogged the real-world minerals are. They then used that information to calculate how much water is in the entire mid-mantle. They report that it is very nearly equal to the amount of water in all of the world’s oceans.More testing will have to be done, of course, but if scientists can prove without doubt that the middle mantle is filled with water, it calls into question theories that suggest water arrived on Earth from comets.last_img read more
