It is easy for me to tell them how good they are but when they don’t play, it’s not so easy for them to understand.“When they play and deliver like they did tonight it is very, very important sign for the whole squad.”Klopp also admitted he actually wasn’t as ‘brave’ as he wanted to be ahead of the game, with more starting XI changes planned had he possessed more courage.“The only two boys I didn’t bring in were Joe [Gomez] and Naby [Keita],” added the Reds boss. “Joe we saw [as a substitute] and Naby is in outstanding shape.“It was only me not brave enough to make those decisions.”Saturday is GameDay on talkSPORT as we bring you THREE live Premier League commentaries across our network 1 AFP or licensors Jurgen Klopp was delighted as his much-changed Liverpool side ran riot against Everton to maintain their eight point lead at the top of the Premier League table.The German rang the changes on Wednesday night amid an intense run of fixtures throughout December for the Reds, with five alterations to the starting XI that beat Brighton last weekend. LIVE on talkSPORT Check out all the live commentaries coming up across our network this week… Key forwards Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were among those on the bench, and the back-up players showed their worth at Anfield with Divock Origi netting a brace and Xherdan Shaqiri also scoring in the 5-2 Merseyside derby thrashing.Klopp was bold to make so many changes ahead of such a key game for the Reds, but his decisions were vindicated as the terrible Toffees were routed at Anfield.And while the German admits his side’s brilliant performance was expected, he hardly believed they would claim victory in the incredible way they did.“We had to make changes, that is clear,” said Klopp after the match. “Some people maybe weren’t happy we did that before a derby.“As a manager you hope for it and when the boys deliver it is the best feeling you can get as a manager, actually. It worked out like that.“It didn’t surprise me but I didn’t expect it in that manner. It was really good. It helped us, not only with the three points.last_img read more

Tesla catches NHTSA flak for some safety claims documents reveal

first_img More about 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance Tesla Model 3 Review: Performance trim Tesla Now playing: Watch this: Enlarge ImageTesla appears unwavering in its dedication to continue using these metrics in its marketing. Nick Miotke/Roadshow Tesla’s cars are mighty safe, no doubt about it, as we’ve seen reflected in scores from both NHTSA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. While Tesla has been eager to tout its five-star NHTSA ratings, it has occasionally reached into its bag of tricks and pulled out lines for marketing that the feds don’t necessarily approve of. According to a new report and recently surfaced documents, Tesla has received a fair amount of scrutiny to this end.The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sent Tesla CEO Elon Musk certified mail asking the California-based automaker to stop using certain figures in its marketing about safety claims, Bloomberg reports, citing documents posted to Plainsite, which were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. According to the letter, which was sent on Oct. 17, 2018, NHTSA claimed that Tesla’s “use of NHTSA five-star ratings and associated data is inconsistent with NHTSA’s government five-star ratings for motor vehicles advertising and communication usage guidelines.” Citing a previous violation along the same lines, the letter stated that NHTSA was referring the matter to the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection “to investigate whether these statements constitute unfair or deceptive acts or practices.”The letter appears to focus on Tesla’s use of the “probability of injury” metric, a figure Tesla alone has used in its marketing — other automakers stick with the star-based rating. NHTSA claims that comparing these ratings for vehicles with weight differentials in excess of 250 pounds is against best practices. “It is therefore inaccurate to claim that the Model 3 has ‘the lowest probability of injury in all cars’ or that Model 3 occupants are ‘less likely to get seriously hurt’ or ‘have the best chance of avoiding a serious injury,'” the letter reads. 45 Photos Tesla’s counsel, Jonathan Morrison, sent NHTSA a multipage response. “Respectfully, we disagree with the agency’s position,” Morrison wrote in the letter. “Tesla’s blog statements are entirely based on actual test results and NHTSA’s own calculations for determining relative risk of injury and probability of injury.” The letter went on to scrutinize NHTSA’s criticisms, before saying, “We do not see a reason to discontinue use of our safety blog or these statements as long as no other vehicle surpasses the Model 3 Long Range RWD’s vehicle safety score and overall probability of injury.” When asked for comment, a Tesla spokesperson pointed Roadshow to Morrison’s letter. NHTSA did not immediately return a request for comment.This is not the first time Tesla and NHTSA have butted heads. After claiming that NHTSA’s detailed test results gave the Model S a 5.4-star rating, NHTSA took Tesla to task and the automaker eventually stopped mentioning that tidbit in its materials. Tesla has also tussled with the IIHS after the Model S did not receive a Top Safety Pick award for its performance in crash tests and evaluations. Following that announcement, Tesla subtly hinted that the IIHS might have a subjective agenda beyond safety, which no other automaker has levied at the IIHS after hearing not-so-great news.   Elon Musk Tesla 8:52 Tesla Model 3 barrels through the snow in Track Mode Share your voice Preview • 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance: The future, quicker Tesla Model S Long Range takes us back to the future Car Industry Electric Cars Tesla Model 3 Performance lives up to its name, but still… Review • Tesla Model 3 Review: Performance trim More From Roadshow 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 50 Photos Tags Comment 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus review: A better EV, but maybe not the best 1last_img read more

Is Sunil Grover finally returning to The Kapil Sharma Show Comedian regrets

first_imgKapil Sharma and Sunil GroverTwitterDespite making several attempts to bring Sunil Grover back on The Kapil Sharma Show, the comedian didn’t appear on the show to promote Bharat with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. And once again speculations are started making the rounds of social media that Sunil Grover will soon return to The Kapil Sharma Show.The infamous war of words between Kapil and Sunil has been one of the most talked about controversies in the industry. The two comedians fell apart in 2017 and Sunil decided to leave the show without having second thoughts.During his recent interaction with Rajeev Masand, Sunil admitted that he did have insecurities while leaving the show mid-way. He had become household with his characters of Dr Mashoor Gulati, Gutthi and Rinku bhabhi during his stint in The Kapil Sharma Show.”For that moment yes, I got so much love from the platform, everybody loved me. I had this thought, sometimes it still comes to my mind, is it good that I am not a part of the show, there is just something that stops me. Mujhe lagta jo Ishwar ne wo diya hai, wo kuch aur bhi dega (The god who gave me this chance, will give me more) I can’t fight internally too much,” Sunil said.Sunil also opened up about the infamous brawl between him and Kapil and regretted that it shouldn’t have happened. “We were a good team, we brought so much laughter and smiles to people’s face. But whatever, I remember the good part. We did a good show, we made so many people smile. I am thankful to the platform that gave me so much, so much recognition. So I am very happy. I have happy memories of the show,” Sunil added.Now whether Sunil will join hands with Kapil or not, only time will tell. But if it ever happens, it would surely be a sight to behold when both Sunil and Kapil would once again perform together and tickle the funny bone of the audience.last_img read more

Astronomers investigate jet kinematics of the blazar 4C2135

first_img © 2019 Science X Network More information: Taeseok Lee et al. Jet Kinematics of the Quasar 4C +21.35 from Observations with the KaVA Very Long Baseline Interferometry Array. arXiv:1904.02894 [astro-ph.GA]. arxiv.org/abs/1904.02894 Citation: Astronomers investigate jet kinematics of the blazar 4C+21.35 (2019, April 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-04-astronomers-jet-kinematics-blazar-4c2135.html Using very-long-baseline-interferometry (VLBI), an international team of astronomers has conducted a kinematic study of a jet of the blazar 4C+21.35. The research, presented in a paper published April 5 on the arXiv pre-print repository, sheds more light on the nature of this quasar and its jet. Fast, very high-energy gamma-ray flare detected from the blazar BL Lacertae A 22 GHz KaVA image of 4C +21.35. Credit: Lee et al., 2019. Blazars are very compact quasars associated with supermassive black holes at the centers of active, giant elliptical galaxies. Based on their optical emission properties, astronomers divide blazars into two classes: flat-spectrum radio quasars (FSRQs) that feature prominent and broad optical emission lines, and BL Lacertae objects (BL Lacs), which do not.In general, blazars belong to a larger group of active galaxies that host active galactic nuclei (AGN), and their characteristic features are relativistic jets pointed almost exactly toward the Earth. However, the detailed mechanisms of ejection and collimation of jets are still poorly understood, and more studies of this phenomenon are required to improve our knowledge on the subject.At a redshift of 0.433, the blazar 4C+21.35, also known as PKS 1222+216, is a nearby very-high-energy (VHE) flat-spectrum radio quasar. Previous studies have revealed that the object exhibits super-luminal apparent jet motions with apparent speeds ranging from three to 25 times greater than the speed of light (c) at milliarcsecond scales. Observations of this source also detected three gamma-ray flares—two occured in 2010 and one in 2014.A group of astronomers led by Taeseok Lee of Seoul National University, South Korea, decided to observe 4C+21.35 using the Korean VLBI Network (KVN) and VLBI Exploration of Radio Astrometry (VERA) array (KaVA). The aim of this observational campaign was to characterize in detail the kinematics of the blazar and to investigate the connection between kinematics and gamma-ray activity in this object.”Since 4C+21.35 shows ongoing vigorous γ-ray activity and blazars are famous for their fast variability, persistent and frequent monitoring of the source structure is essential. We therefore studied the kinematics of the jet of 4C+21.3 with bi-weekly radio interferometric mapping observations, providing an unprecedented density of data,” the astronomers wrote in the paper.KaVA observations between mid-2014 and mid-2016 have revealed that at 22 GHz, 4C+21.35 has a compact straight jet, uncovering three components in the inner jet and two in the blob. All the jet components show linear outward motion—the further from the core, the faster they move, with apparent speeds reaching 14.4 c.The researchers found a connection between the innermost component that became visible in early 2016 and the gamma-ray flare spotted in November 2014. They report that the timing of the ejection of the new component is consistent with this flare.”Extrapolating the position of the newly emerged component (component C in Figure1) back to zero distance from the core suggests an ejection in 2014.5 ± 3.4, assuming a constant component speed, consistent with the peak time of the mid-November 2014 γ-ray flare,” the paper reads.Furthermore, KaVA observations at 43 GHz detected four inner jet components with apparent speeds from 3.5 to 6.8 c. However, when compared to the results from previous studies, the newly calculated apparent speeds turned out to be about 50 percent lower.According to the authors of the paper, this “loss of speed” could be a consequence of the fact that an AGN jet is not a group of discrete, point-like sources, but a complex continuous distribution of matter. They added that the discrepancy in the result could be also due temporal undersampling, which often leads to misidentification of components or overestimation of apparent jet speeds.All in all, the study highlights the importance of high cadence observations in order to avoid misunderstanding the jet kinematics.
