Round-up: Hazard plays and Scowen could miss Cardiff game

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesEden Hazard played 75 minutes for Chelsea’s development side in the latest stage of his comeback from an ankle injury.It was Hazard’s second outing since having surgery – he also featured a recent behind-closed-doors friendly against QPR’s youth side.The young Blues were beaten 3-0 by reigning Premier League 2 champions Everton at Aldershot, where boss Antonio Conte watched Hazard in action.Earlier on Friday, Conte admitted he was “surprised” by the decision of Belgium boss Roberto Martinez to call Hazard up for their games with Gibraltar and Greece on August 31 and September 3.Meanwhile, midfielder Jordan Houghton came through another 60 minutes and is expected to return to Doncaster on loan, having recovered from the cruciate injury he suffered while on loan with the Yorkshire club last season. Morata is improving – ConteEmbed from Getty Images Conte says Alvaro Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko are beginning to understand the style of play he is trying to implement this season.Neither of the summer signings were fully fit for the opening weekend of the Blues’ Premier League title defence, although Morata did come off the bench to score in the 3-2 defeat by Burnley.However, with Chelsea’s squad stretched by injuries and suspensions, both started in the 2-1 win against Tottenham at Wembley.“Morata is improving a lot, [both in] his physical condition and also to adapt himself to this idea of football,” said Conte. “Bakayoko is doing the same. Don’t forget, he is working with us for 10 days.“To go into an idea of football, to adapt yourself into a style of football is not simple because you have to understand movement, you have to understand when you have to attack the space, whether you stay to receive the ball, there are many situations to understand.” Conte refuses to comment on LlorenteEmbed from Getty ImagesConte has refused to comment on reports that Chelsea are looking to tie up a deal to sign Fernando Llorente from Swansea City ahead of next week’s transfer deadline.Llorente, 32, previously played under Conte at Juventus and has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge during successive transfer windows.Asked about the Spaniard, Conte said: “I don’t like to speak about players of other teams. It is a lack of respect for the teams these players are playing for and for my players.” Omerou signs deal and is loaned outEmbed from Getty ImagesDefender Kenneth Omeruo signed a new contract with Chelsea, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2020.He will rejoin Turkish side Kasimpasa on loan for the rest of this season, having played 26 times for the Istanbul-based club in 2015-16.It will be Omeruo’s third successive season loan spell in Turkey, having spent last season with Alanyaspor. Benham’s open letterBrentford owner Matthew Benham says the club’s current business model would not be sustainable without a slimmed-down new stadium plan – and promotion to the Premier League.Last week, the club unveiled revised plans for their proposed Lionel Road stadium, with capacity reduced from 20,000 to 17,250 seats and a number of facilities removed or amended.And in an open letter to supporters explaining the changes, Benham also addressed concerns he had heard about the long-term future of the club.He said: “Football continues to change so it is impossible to predict what business model would make the club fully sustainable at any point in future.“It is important to note that the business plan associated with the original stadium design would not have been enough to sustain the club with the current Championship wage bill.“As it stands, the only way to be truly sustainable is to be in the Premier League.“The new stadium design is completely aligned with our Premier League ambition, will yield important additional revenues that move us towards sustainability, and will not involve the club taking unnecessary business risks.“We will continue with a transfer policy which will help to fill the rest of the funding gap.” Goss lined up for loan moveQPR are looking to send Sean Goss out on loan ahead of next week’s transfer deadline.The midfielder has started three games since being signed from Manchester United in January and has not featured for Rangers so far this season.Goss, 21, had not made a senior appearance prior to his move to Loftus Road and QPR believe he might benefit from the chance to play first-team football elsewhere.Clubs have therefore been made aware of his availability. Goss and Manning play in U23 gameGoss and Ryan Manning featured for QPR’s development side in a game against Barnsley on Friday afternoon.Manning scored a late winner and Goss hit the bar in the match at Rangers’ Harlington training ground, where the hosts won 3-2.Manning crossed for Danny Rowe to score the opener and Dan Darbyshire doubled Rangers’ lead early in the second half when he headed in the rebound after Goss’ effort had come back off the woodwork.Victor Adeboyejo scored twice to haul Barnsley level but Manning’s powerful strike made it three wins out of three this season for QPR’s Under-23s. Scowen an injury doubtEmbed from Getty ImagesJosh Scowen is a doubt for QPR’s game against Championship leaders Cardiff.The midfielder, who has impressed since his summer move from Barnsley, has an ankle problem and will be assessed ahead of the match.Joel Lynch is expected to miss out again with a hamstring injury, while Jordan Cousins and Grant Hall remain sidelined and James Perch faces several months out with a knee injury.Kazenga LuaLua, who has been on compassionate leave following the recent death of his father, is expected to be available. Agent says French clubs want NgbakotoYeni Ngbakoto’s representative Philippe Fiorentino has told French publication Foot Mercato that the winger is happy at QPR despite interest from French clubs.It comes after speculation that Ngbakoto, signed from Metz last year, is unsettled in London – and after French radio station RMC reported that Nantes had approached his representatives.Fiorentino denied any contact with Nantes and insisted Ngbakoto is settled at QPR, but said there is interest among French clubs.He said: “Yeni is well in London, but I can confirm that French clubs have come to us, like Angers, Toulouse and Guingamp.“However, and contrary to what has appeared in several media, we have not received an offer from FC Nantes.” Carter-Vickers loan move confirmedEmbed from Getty ImagesCameron Carter-Vickers has signed a new three-year contract with Tottenham and completed a season-long loan move to Sheffield United. The 19-year-old defender has made four senior appearances for Spurs and the club are keen for him to pick up more first-team experience.A number of clubs have shown an interest but he opted to join the Blades.The move was lined up as Spurs edged closer to a deal to sign Argentine centre-back Juan Foyth, 19, from Estudiantes.

Quantum communication for South Africa

first_imgDr Stef Roux believes that free spacequantum communications could put South Africa on the global telecoms map.(Image: CSIR) Quantum communication is more securethan fibre-optic cable, because anytapping can easily be detected.(Image: stock.xchng) MEDIA CONTACTS • Dr Stef RouxPrincipal researcher and project leaderCSIR National Laser Centre+27 12 841 2823 RELATED ARTICLES • SA laser physicist wins top honour• SA hosts world science meet • Mobile opportunities in Africa • Africa’s telecoms growth potential • Telkom secures R902m loanShamin ChibbaFor some, talk of lasers and quantum physics immediately conjures images from our favourite science fiction movies. But one South African is turning what many people still perceive as fantasy into a reality.Dr Stef Roux, a researcher and project leader at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research’s National Laser Centre, is looking to pioneer free space quantum communication, a technology that transmits optical signals through the air using the quantum properties of laser light.According to Roux, this technology will provide a much safer means of communicating. He added that the point is to communicate by line of sight, from one tower to another, using light.Roux stated that quantum communication is safer than fibre-optic cables because the latter can be tapped and tampered with, whereas with quantum communication such behaviour can be easily detected.“In terms of application it will help secure communication. And with online ID theft and fraud, there’s a big challenge to find more secure communication.”The 47-year-old believes South Africa should act quickly in taking the initiative to develop this technology so that the country can become a global communications role player. He said that in a number of countries, funding and research into this technology is a high priority.“If we in South Africa jump on this bandwagon and make a significant contribution, it will have a huge impact for the country and position us as a key role player for this technology in the world,” said Roux.Quantum communications still in its infancyRoux, who holds doctorates in both electronic engineering and theoretical particle physics, has a passion for optics and particle physics, which is pushing him to advance in the project.A year in, Roux and his team have progressed far enough to have drawn up theoretical results. However, the practical aspect of the project is still in its infancy and there are challenges in getting the technology to work.Roux said that the team is still in the process of attaining a proper laser and to achieve stable entanglement. This is a concept of quantum mechanics that describes the action of a pair or group of particles when they behave like one object but remain as individuals.Quantum entanglement involves photons, or elementary particles, of light which, in the lab, are set up so that when one is manipulated, the others will be affected no matter how far apart they are.This relates to how senders and receivers will realise that someone is trying to eavesdrop on their communication.Roux has discovered that the entangled particles are very precarious and that entanglement cannot be retained, especially when the atmosphere is turbulent as this causes the particles to de-cohere. He and his team are currently researching how to mitigate these effects.Collaborating with universitiesRoux hopes to advance the experimental stage soon through collaboration with three universities. He is currently working on the project with the University of KwaZulu-Natal, but will visit Canada’s University of Ottawa in the third quarter of the year to learn more about their findings.He is also looking to collaborate with the University of Freiburg in Germany.Roux said the experts at these universities have already established basic experiments to implement the technology and that he can gain valuable experience that would help him with his own experiments.But if you are expecting to be using this technology soon, look for alternatives in the meantime. According to Roux, no definite date can be set for its availability to the public, as it may take up to a decade to finally turn it into a workable technology.He also stated that for the technology to grow, it will need protocols and infrastructure.STYLE–> South Africa’s Dr Stef Roux, an electrical engineer and theoretical physicist, is pioneering a technology that transmits signals using the quantum properties of laser light and will allow users to transmit sensitive data in a secure environment.A scientist pioneers communication technologyShamin ChibbaFor some, talk of lasers and quantum physics immediately conjures images from our favourite science fiction movies.

Moto G2 likely go on sale on Sept 10: Report

first_imgThe Moto G (pictured here) helped Motorola sell one million Moto phones in India in five monthsMoto G2, the successor of phenomenally popular Moto G, will go on sale on September 10 at a price of around $335. According to a report by GSMArena, a website that covers smartphone-related news, the launch information about Moto G has been revealed by a retailer who got the information “straight from a Motorola” representative.Recently, the Moto G got a price cut in India and it is possible that the move was aimed to clear the existing stock and make space for the Moto G2.The Moto G2 is likely to have upgraded hardware compared to the Moto G. It will possibly sport a bigger screen — 5-inch screen compared to the 4.5-inch on the Moto G — and will have a 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front camera. The screen will have the same 720P resolution. The leaked information hits that the device will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor running at 1.2GHz, will have 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. It is likely to have dual-SIM functionality.If these specifications are correct, the Moto G2 looks like a moderate update over the Moto G. The price of the new phone is rumoured to be $335, which is almost double of the launch price of the Moto G. If the price is correct, in India the Moto G2 is likely to cost around Rs 20,000.Though Motorola had delayed the launch of Moto G in India and brought it here only in February, the phone has been a big success for the company. Considering the numbers Moto G has notched up here, it is possible that Motorola will include India among the first markets where the Moto G2 will go on sale.  advertisementFor Motorola, the Moto G has been its most successful smartphone ever. Priced aggressively and aimed at markets in developing countries, the phone offered consumers almost “pure” Android experience in a compact and fully-functional device. Another factor that contributed to the success of the Moto G was lack of competition. When Motorola launched Moto G last year, most companies were selling affordable Android phones that had performance issues and poor screens.But the situation has changed in the last few months, especially in countries like India. The new Moto G2 will have to not only compete against good sub-Rs 10,000 devices like Asus Zenfone 5 but will also have to deal with Xiaomi Mi3, which sells for less than Rs 15,000 and yet offers performance comparable to something provided by high-end phones like the Galaxy S4 and the LG G2.Follow author on Twitter @Javed_dellast_img read more
