He trained to become a stroke and turn judge, sitting for endless hours at the end of a pool lane in meets. When Dorairaj exited his startup, infiswift, last summer. He wanted to undertake a project with his son, states a report by“After so many years of working, I had time,” says Dorairaj. “I was thinking, ‘What can I teach my son?’” And there came the idea when son Amit asked father to not to compare him with anybody.Then came on-board Natalie Coughlin, retired US swimmer with 12 Olympic medals to her credit. Who also happened to be wife of Amit’s swimming coach Ethan Hall. The coach also now works for the company, and USA Swimming national team high performance manager Russell Mark sits on the board of advisers. The company has grown to five employees and 12 engineering contractors.The primary challenge of this startup is setting up the computer vision to work through the water. Dorairaj said his prior work in the solar industry helped him understand light rays, and his solution for the problem posed by water is now Aspiricx’s core intellectual property.Swimmers’ varying body types make uniformity of technique impractical, and this understanding is the underpinning of Aspiricx.Aspiricx’s first product, LaneVision, scheduled for an early release, can generate such metrics as lap splits, average stroke rate, average distance per stroke cycle, underwater velocity, breakout distance and more. Combined with a web portal hosted — the premise is “to create a model for your ideal swimming stroke,” Coughlin said — LaneVision will use artificial intelligence to suggest biomechanical analysis.The second launch, StrokeVision, will be available soon and require advanced camera equipment for a 3D scan and offer more extensive input about stroke improvements.“Everyone’s body, everyone’s body type is completely different so the swimming stroke that works for me may not work for the next person. What we’re going to do is figure out a way to really personalize swimming strokes,” says Nathalie. “If you don’t have a coach, it can be very intimidating, so what we’re hoping to develop is something that, you could come to us and we could help you visualize your ideal version of your swimming.”Nathalie’s input has been the creative side on the requirements of the different segments and age groups of swimmers.

RBS Six Nations: Ireland 35-25 Scotland

first_img Ireland finished off their Six Nations with a high-scoring win over a Scottish side who refused to back down, but who allowed the Irish onto the front foot too often to have a chance of winning.The hosts utterly dominated the first half, despite a phenomenal solo try from Stuart Hogg. Two Irish tries were scored while John Barclay was in the sin-bin – including a calamitous score when Hogg and Tommy Seymour ran into each other – and it could have been pushed out of sight as the visitors kept getting turned back towards their own line.However, the Scots displayed real grit as they roared into the second half and the neutrals will have enjoyed a contest that had seven tries and more than a little bit of niggle. Ireland have back-to-back wins to end their campaign. Scotland played with fits of excitement and scoring three tries again will please, but discipline and their scrum let them down just at the death of the tournament.Racing clear: Stuart Hogg gallops to his tryWHAT’S HOT…Players backing themselves – To begin with, it looked like a game that would be defined by cagey kicking. But with CJ Stander carrying at a metronomic rate and Stuart Hogg’s spot-the-gap-and-gun-it solo try, fans had something to cheer. The game came to life after these initial forays.Irish ruck speed – Sexton had so much time to marshal his troops with the platform he and Conor Murray were allowed as the phases racked up. With John Barclay in the bin things only got worse for Scotland as two tries came back-to-back.Scrum play – Hallelujah! No one will be talking about how much time was chewed up by scrums in this one. The ball went in and a lot of the time it came out again. What a breath of fresh air.Seing yellow: Alex Dunbar gets carded for flipping Sexton out of a ruckWHAT’S NOT…Scotland’s discipline – Two yellow cards will look significant over the whole piece, but eight penalties conceded in the first half made things so very difficult. Coming into this they had the best record in the whole championship, but things fell apart at the start of their last outing. Sexton got himself a yellow card too, but the disciplinary stats will belie the significance of when and where penalties were conceded.Play acting – After being flipped out of a ruck recklessly by Alex Dunbar, Sexton appealed to the ref… then held his head and shouted out in ‘pain’. We could have done without that…Prevalence of the maul – Kicked to touch from a penalty? Chances were always high that another penalty would come hot on the heels of the last one. Okay, that could very easily be a positive, but it’s not something that makes for entertaining rugby. In fact, it cannot be a good thing for the game as a whole to have such a certainty at play.Afters – If you like pushing and shoving, this one had plenty, as things boiled over in the second half. It might have been worth it to see referee Gauzere wading in and dragging players away – and all of it caught on ref cam.Tempers flare: Ireland and Scotland square up after Devin Toner’s trySTATISTICS Leap of faith: CJ Stander jumps towards his try in the first half LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 7 – The number of scrums Ireland won, compared to Scotland’s one.4 – The surprisingly low number of turnovers all game.50 – the number of kicks in open play.Ireland: S Zebo; A Trimble (F McFadden 79), J Payne, R Henshaw, K Earls; J Sexton, C Murray (E Reddan 78); J McGrath (C Healy 67), R Best (capt, R Strauss 67), M Ross (N White 63), D Ryan (U Dillane 68), D Toner, CJ Stander, T O’Donnell (R Ruddock 68), J Heaslip.Tries: Stander, Earls, Murray, Toner.

Looking back at the best of hard hitting Samu Manoa as he calls time on his Test career

first_imgWednesday Jun 19, 2019 Looking back at the best of hard hitting Samu Manoa as he calls time on his Test career Seattle Seawolves forward Samu Manoa announced his retirement from international rugby yesterday, only months before the World Cup starts in Japan.ADVERTISEMENTAfter making his debut for the United States in 2010, Manoa went on to earn 22-caps, captaining his country against South Africa in the 2015 World Cup.The 34-year-old made his name in Europe during his spell with the Northampton Saints between 2011 and 2015. He won the Premiership in 2014 with the Saints, and was a nominee for the RPA’s Players’ Player of the Year award in 2015.Capable of playing in the back-row or as a lock, he developed a fearsome reputation while in England as one of the most brutal tacklers in Europe. At 6ft 6 and weighing 20 stone, Manoa was known to put his full weight behind his bone crunching hits.Here are some highlights of Manoa at his best:Manoa earned a move to European giants Toulon in 2015, with whom he stayed with until 2018 when he moved to the Cardiff Blues. He had a short stint in the Welsh capital before making the move back to the United States and joining the Seattle Seawolves in May.ADVERTISEMENTJust this past weekend, he contributed to the Seawolves winning the 2019 MLR title.His retirement will not help the USA’s preparations for the World Cup, but ultimately he will know how much he could or could not still give.

Duško Miljuš case – Public letter to Mr. Tomislav Karamarko, Minister of Interior

first_img RSF_en December 2, 2020 Find out more Dear Sir, On June 2nd it has been two years since Duško Miljuš, Jutarnji list investigative journalist, has been brutally attacked. His arm was broken and he suffered serious head trauma. That attack by three perpetrators with baseball clubs was at the time characterized by the police as attempted murder. But the police has not succeeded yet in finding the responsible persons who ordered or performed the attack. This is extremely frustrating for Miljuš personally, for Croatian journalists in general and for the independant media, especially those interested in crime and corruption in Croatia. As the main governmental goal is the fight against anti-corruption, journalists dealing with anti-corruption must be protected and investigations of attacks on journalists must be a major priority of the police . Some of our colleagues have been under different kind of police protection for longer periods exactly due to the fact that perpetrators have not been found. The lack of efficiency in police investigations is not a good message for journalists and democracy in Croatia. A thorogh investigation and possible arrest of Miljuš attackers and others who have threatened journalists would create an atmosphere of trust so needed in croatia. Dear Mr. Karamarko, as you have announced the successful results regarding Miljuš investigations several times in the last two years, we question whether there is somebody obstructing that investigation We call upon your professional skill and ethics to do everything possible to make the arrest of Miljuš attackers and send them to court.

Are Smaller Homes the Cure to Inventory Concerns?

Peck In the blog “Recent Growth of Newly Built Smaller Homes Could Ease the Housing Shortage, but Higher Costs Hamper Affordability” published by the Urban Institute, author Michael Neal notes that should the current pace of home sales continues (6.01 million homes in March) and with the months’ supply of existing homes near its record low (2.1 months in March), the existing for-sale inventory would be exhausted around Memorial Day if no additional inventory is added.With the recent hurdles noted in terms of the rising cost of lumber tacking on $35,000-plus to the price of a newly-constructed home, and the price of government red tape on the rise, builders continue to face resource cost burdens that make it difficult to produce affordable homes.“Recent new home sales suggest that building costs can counteract the expected affordability improvements that arise from more new small homes being completed and sold,” said Neal in the blog. “For the housing market to ensure ample affordable housing options remain available, policymakers can seek to reduce production costs by promoting alternative building methods, such as modular or panelized housing.”With the average size of a new home decreasing due to a small but growing share of entry-level homes under 1,800-square feet, sales of smaller new homes have increased 76% since 2015, compared to a 36% increase in new home sales overall. In response, these “starter” homes saw their share of all new home sales increase from 16% to 21%, less than its share before the housing bust.3D printing has been found to reduce the need for human labor at a time when home builders are struggling to find skilled workers to meeting housing demand. Many construction workers left the trades after the housing-fueled financial crisis more than a decade ago, and fewer young people are entering the field.Jason Ballard, CEO and Co-Founder of ICON, said its 3D printing system can do the work of 10 to 20 workers in five or six different trades, working up to 24 hours a day, saving developers time and money. ICON made news in 2018 by completing the first permitted 3D printed home in the U.S., claiming the home had been built in just a day.Despite speed and materials, to increase the affordability of newly constructed homes, policymakers can provide incentives to builders to build smaller homes and to reduce production costs.“Even if new building technologies were more heavily used, the housing shortage would not disappear,” said Neal. “High land costs, regulatory constraints on permitting and building design, and financing and delivery challenges may keep new home prices high. But the building of new smaller homes and the price convergence offers the prospect that new homes could provide some affordable supply and could ease the shortage.”Click here to read “Recent Growth of Newly Built Smaller Homes Could Ease the Housing Shortage, but Higher Costs Hamper Affordability.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Broken?
