first_imgResearchers at the USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute just bypassed a major roadblock in the development of a new kind of rechargeable battery — the lithium-sulfur.Their findings, which were published in the January issue of the Journal of the Electrochemical Society, might lead to the introduction of the lithium-sulfur battery to markets as opposed to the industry standard lithium-ion battery.Sri Narayan, the lead author of the study, has been studying batteries since graduate school, for 30 years now. However, he and his research assistant Derek Moy began working on this particular project five years ago with the goal of improving the life cycle of the lithium-sulfur battery.“Lithium-sulfur batteries are the next step from lithium-ion in that you have about twice the energy density [than] the lithium ion or even more,” Narayan said. “Unfortunately, that technology has suffered many limitations because of the processes that happen inside the battery.”The lithium-sulfur battery has many advantages over the lithium-ion, according to Narayan. The material it is composed of — sulfur — is common and affordable. These batteries are also smaller due to their great density, thus making them better at storing power and a worthy alternative to the larger lithium-ion batteries.Despite these advantages, lithium-sulfur batteries are not usually seen in markets because their life cycles are inferior to those of the lithium-ions. Also, the lithium-ion batteries being sold today can be recharged as many as 1,000 times, the lithium-sulfur battery can only be recharged 50 to 100 times, making them unreliable alternatives despite their affordability and superior density.“Lithium-sulfur can double the energy content of the lithium-ion battery in its current configuration,” Narayan said. “That means you get twice the run time, which also means that you have more energy at your disposal. But you also want cycle life. Lithium-sulfur offers you currently energy content, but does not offer you cycle life.”However, Narayan and Moy have devised a solution to the lithium-sulfur battery’s limited life cycles — a thin, semi-permeable membrane they dubbed the “Mixed Conduction Membrane.” They placed this membrane between two porous separators, which were then placed between the two electrodes.Narayan said that the idea for this membrane arose from the need to inhibit the movement of sulfur molecules and allow for the movement of lithium ions.“The solution was actually in the lithium battery space,” Narayan said. “If you take the cathode materials, the positive electrode materials of the lithium ion battery, they have the ability to move around lithium ions, which we need to go between the two electrodes of the lithium-sulfur battery. But they will not let the sulfur molecules that are bad for the lithium-sulfur battery move.”The purpose of this mixed conduction membrane is to halt polysulfide shuttling. In a normal lithium-sulfur battery, the shuttling of dissolved polysulfides between anode and cathode results in the cycle strain that has inhibited energy storage in lithium-sulfur batteries. Use of a mixed conduction membrane, on the other hand, still allows for the kind of flow of lithium ions seen in lithium-ion batteries, while harnessing all the advantages of the lithium-sulfur battery.“The shuttling process causes some permanent changes at the other electrode when things go from one electrode to the other,” Narayan said. “The simple goal was: Can we stop this shuttling process? If we [do], then immediately we should be able to increase the life of this battery.”Narayan and Moy found that lithium-sulfur batteries with the mixed conduction membrane had up to four times longer life compared to batteries without the membrane. This led them to believe that, once a few other issues involving the lithium electrode are fixed, this battery may possibly make its way into the market in a few years.“The way we stopped the shuttling process is just one of the solutions,” Moy said. “People can now focus on the negative electrode, which is the next big step. If they can stabilize the negative electrode, which is the lithium electrode, then we could very well be seeing lithium-sulfur batteries on the market.”Narayan and Moy are continuing their work with lithium-sulfur batteries, looking to study the electrodes further and make improvements to their mixed conduction membrane.last_img read more

first_imgHe urged Lagosians to take advantage of the opportunity to come out and have fun while keeping fit at the event which is already the most talked-about marathon in Africa after its first edition last year.Lagos City Marathon Organiser, Bukola Olopade, said “The success of the marathon, the first full international marathon in Nigeria in 31 years is a thing of pride for all Nigerians. We need the support of all Nigerians, especially corporate citizens to emulate Bet9ja and join hands with Lagos State Government, Athletics Federation of Nigeria and title sponsor, Access Bank, to make the Lagos City Marathon among the top five in the world in the next few years.’’The Lagos City Marathon, the second highest-ranking marathon in Africa will witness the participation of thousands of professionals and amateurs with over 100 elite athletes on the streets of Lagos.Meanwhile, African record holder in wheel chair racing, Hannah Babalola, has said her target at this year’s Access Bank /Lagos City Marathon is to reduce her time and make it a back-to-back victory.The Paralympian who arrived the country yesterday ahead of the marathon said she was excited with the new racing wheelchair acquired by the sponsors of the race for the athletes.“I want to say a big thank you to Access Bank for acquiring 10 racing wheelchair,” she said.“This has put us (Nigerian athletes) at per with our counterparts across the world. I had a wonderful race at the first edition and I am ready to do better especially with this new wheelchair.“I am also going to use the marathon to prepare for the London Marathon I will be participating in April.“The problem facing most of us special athletes have always been equipment and this will definitely help in taking more athletes off the streets.”Babalola made it to the final stage of the 2016 Rio Paralympic, a feat no Nigerian athlete has ever attained.She added that the experience in Rio, and her preparations would put her in good position ahead of her competitors.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigeria leading sports betting company, Bet9ja, has officially joined the Access Bank/Lagos City Marathon as an official sponsor of the nation’s number one marathon.The Marketing and Corporate Communications Manager, Bet9ja, Mr. Tunji Meshioye, told reporters that apart from sponsorship in cash and kind, Bet9ja will be giving out lots of freebies on the marathon day scheduled to take place on February 11, 2017 at 7am.last_img read more

first_imgundocumented immigrants Some 1,500 Trinidad and Tobago nationals have been detained following operations to nab undocumented immigrants in several American states in the last week.Since the signing of an executive order by President Donald Trump on January 25, operations by law enforcement officers have been ramped up and at least 50,000 persons have been caught in the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) dragnet.Trump had campaigned strongly on a ticket to rid the country of millions of illegal immigrants, who he claimed were bleeding the country’s resources and cheating American citizens out of jobs.The Trinidadian nationals are said to have spent from one to 35 years in the country and some are expected to be deported as early as next week.The raids were carried out in New York, Illinois, Georgia, North and South Carolina and California.Officials had said that the raids are targeting persons who are a threat to public safety and the immigration system.last_img read more

first_imgHAMILTON, Bermuda, CMC – President of the Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA) Donna Raynor says next month’s Carifta Games, which are set to attract more than 600 athletes from 27 Caribbean countries, should not be affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that is spreading across the globe.The virus has reached non-English speaking Caribbean countries, with a few cases in the Dominican Republic, Martinique, Saint Martin and Saint Barthélemy.The 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, slated for July 24 to August 9, are under threat due to the spread of COVID-19 globally.But as Bermuda prepares to host the 49th Carifta Games – the fifth time the island will be the location for the event – Raynor said she did not expect the COVID-19 situation would disrupt the staging.“As of now, all systems are go for Carifta, the countries are having their final trials…and we’re all moving ahead as if it is going to take place,” she told the Royal Gazette newspaper.Raynor added that the matter was addressed at a recent meeting of the local organizing committee (LOC).“Fortunately for us, most of the athletes are coming in from the Caribbean and flying in on charters, not flying through the United States…. We’re just really keeping our fingers crossed that we can get through the next couple of weeks and that Carifta is on,” Raynor said, adding that she was hoping none of the countries would pull out of the April 10-13 games.“I just want to have the event, we’ve put a lot of work into it and are ready to go. Hopefully we can get Carifta off the ground.”The BNAA will this weekend host a two-day trial meet at the National Sports Centre which is the venue for the Carifta Games. It will be the final opportunity for local athletes to reach qualifying standards ahead of the March 16 deadline.The Games, held under the auspices of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC), features 150 separate events.Meantime, the International Triathlon Union has confirmed that the April 18-19 MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda will go ahead as planned.The Bermuda event is the next on the seven-series circuit that will culminate in the World Championships and Grand Finals in Edmonton, Canada in August. The 2020 Carifta Games will be staged between April 10 and 13.last_img read more

first_imgTiger Woods had the last word against Sergio Garcia by winning The Players Championship on Sunday.Woods ended a weekend of verbal sparring with Garcia by doing what he does best – closing out tournaments, even if he let this one turn into a tense duel over the final hour at the TPC Sawgrass. Tied with Garcia with two holes to play, Woods won by finding land on the last two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70.If only it were that simple for the Spaniard.Garcia was standing on the 17th tee shot, staring across the water to an island as Woods made his par. He took aim at the flag with his wedge and hung his head when he saw the ball splash down short of the green. Then, Garcia hit another one in the water on his way to a quadruple-bogey 7. He completed his stunning collapse by hitting his tee shot into the water on the 18th and making double bogey.Woods was in the scoring trailer when he watched on TV as Swedish rookie David Lingmerth missed a long birdie putt that would have forced a playoff. It raced by the cup, and Lingmerth three-putted for bogey.“How about that?” Woods said to his caddie, Joe LaCava as he gave him a hug. Woods won The Players for the first time since 2001 and joined Fred Couples, Davis Love III and Steve Elkington as the only two-time winners at the TPC Sawgrass. It was his 78th career win on the PGA Tour, four short of the record held by Sam Snead.Lingmerth closed with a 72 and finished two shots behind along with Kevin Streelman (67) and Jeff Maggert, who also was tied for the lead until finding the water on the 17th to make double bogey. The 49-year-old Maggert birdied the 18th for a 70.Garcia took 13 shots to cover the final two holes – 6-over par – and tumbled into a tie for eighth.Woods made this drama possible by hooking his tee shot into the water on the 14th hole and making a double bogey, dropping him into a four-way tie with Garcia, Maggert and Lingmerth. The final two holes came down to Garcia and Woods, most appropriate given their public sniping at each other this weekend.It started Saturday when Garcia complained in a TV interview that his shot from the par-5 second fairway was disrupted by cheers from the crowd around Woods, who was some 50 yards away in the trees and fired them up by taking a fairway metal out of his bag. He said Woods should have been paying attention, and it became a war of the words the next two days. “Not real surprising that he’s complaining about something,” Woods said.“At least I’m true to myself,” Garcia retorted. “I know what I’m doing, and he can do whatever he wants.”When they finished the storm-delayed third round Sunday morning, Garcia kept at it, saying that Woods is “not the nicest guy on tour.”Woods had the last laugh. He had the trophy.Garcia, when asked if he would have changed anything about the flap with Woods, replied, “It sounds like I was the bad guy here. I was the victim.” The real villain was the infamous 17th hole, which knocked out Garcia and Maggert.“When you’ve got water in front of the green, that’s not a good time to be short of the green. You know, it was close,” Maggert said. “What can I say? A wrong shot at the wrong time and you get penalized on this golf course.”It was at the 17th hole five years ago where Garcia won The Players Championship, when Paul Goydos hit into the water in a sudden-death playoff. This time, the island green got its revenge on him. Garcia hit a wedge and felt he caught it just a little bit thin, which is usually all it takes.“That hole has been good to me for the most part,” Garcia said. “Today, it wasn’t. That’s the way it is. That’s the kind of hole it is. You’ve got to love it for what it is.”Woods finished on 13-under 275 and earned $1.71 million, pushing his season total to over $5.8 million in just seven tournaments. This is the 12th season he has won at least four times – that used to be the standard of a great year before he joined the PGA Tour in 1996 – and this was the quickest he has reached four wins in a year. It also was the first time Woods has won on Mother’s Day.“Sorry, Mom,” he said into the camera. “I think she might have had a heart attack. I was in control of the tournament, and I just hit the worst shot I could possibly hit.”Typical of Woods these days, there were questions about where he took the drop – some 255 yards from the hole. NBC Sports analyst Johnny Miller suggested it was a “borderline” where he took the drop. But Mark Russell, vice president of competition for the PGA Tour, said there was nothing wrong with the drop. Woods conferred with Casey Wittenberg, who said there was “no doubt” that Woods took the drop in the right spot.“He asked me exactly where it crossed,” Wittenberg said. “I told him I thought it crossed on the corner of the bunker, right where he took his drop. And it’s all good.”Woods wound up with a double bogey, and he nearly fell out of the lead on the 15th until he saved par with an 8-foot putt. He followed with another up-and-down from the bunker on the par-5 16th for birdie. Garcia, playing in the final group behind Woods, two-putted the 16th to regain a share of the lead and then walked over to the 17th tee where it ended with two swings. Woods and Garcia played four tension-free holes Sunday morning to complete the third round, and they shook hands without words when they finished – Woods with a 71, Garcia with a 72 to share the 54-hole lead with Lingmerth.With a three-way tie, Garcia wound up in the final group because he was first to play at the start of the third round.Garcia, however, continued to fuel the bad feelings between them.He told Sky Sports, “I’m not going to lie, he’s not my favorite guy to play with. He’s not the nicest guy on tour.” And then he told Golf Channel, “We don’t enjoy each other’s company. You don’t need to be a rocket engineer to figure that out.”Woods downplayed the episode and said it didn’t matter who joined him on the tee. “I’m tied for the lead, so I’m right there.” And that’s where he usually wins. Woods now is 53-4 in his PGA Tour career when he has at least a share of the lead going into the final round.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool may have lost the title race to Manchester City but the Reds are top of the table when it comes to earnings over the 2013-14 season. Brendan Rodgers’ side finished two points behind Manchester City, who lifted the Premier League trophy, but their projected earnings are £1m more.Liverpool had the most games on television in the season with 28, while City had 25, the same as Manchester United (who finished seventh in the league), Chelsea (third in the league) and Arsenal (fourth in the league).The TV earnings are proportional to the number of matches each team had televised during the season. And the value of TV revenue and being in the top flight can be seen by bottom club Cardiff, who received just £1.2m as a merit payment, picking up £64m when television and Premier League share is factored in. Manchester United have had a hugely disappointing campaign on the pitch but their appeal to broadcasters is clear, as only the top four earned more over the season.  Each side received £54m for just being in the Premier League, then their performances and TV lure is factored in. There was potential for teams such as Hull to earn up to £4m from the last round of matches but the positions stayed largely the same. Alan Pardew might not be popular with Newcastle fans but Mike Ashley will be pleased that his manager has brought in nearly £79m.last_img read more

first_imgSAN ANTONIO — Do or die. Win or go home. Wait ’til next year.Whatever adage one desires, they were all applicable to the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night at AT&T Center.The Clippers entered down 3-2, largely because they couldn’t finish Games 2 and 5 at Staples Center, where they lost by identical scores.After a 27-8 run between the second and third quarters erased a 10-point deficit – setting the tone – the Clippers finished this one, defeating the Spurs 102-96, tying the what has been a spectacular series – a classic, if you will – 3-3 and sending it back to Staples Center for a Game 7 Saturday. Each team has won two games on the others’ court. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error There were some clutch baskets that made it possible. One was a 3-pointer by J.J. Redick for a 92-86 lead. Another was a layup by Blake Griffin off an assist from Chris Paul, yet another was an 18-footer by Jamal Crawford. Paul chipped in with a 7-footer with 21 seconds left for a 98-93 lead. Marco Belinelli, who made 7 of 11 from 3-point range for the Spurs, made his final long-distance shot to get the Spurs within 98-96. But when Crawford made two free throws with 10.1 seconds left, the Clippers led 100-96 and the Spurs were done.Griffin led the Clippers with 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. Paul finished with 19 points and 15 assists. He had only four points at halftime – all on free throws – and had missed all seven of his shots. J.J. Redick also scored 19 and DeAndre Jordan scored 15 points with 14 rebounds. He was again victim of Hack-a-DJ, making 7 of 15 from the free-throw line. Belinelli led the Spurs with 23 points off the bench and Boris Diaw scored 17. Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard scored 12 points apiece with Duncan getting a team-high 13 rebounds.“I thought Blake Griffin and Chris Paul took the game over,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “We didn’t stop them. They were tremendous.”Paul still didn’t shoot well overall, finishing 7 of 21. But he made ones that counted.center_img “I knew he didn’t have any field goals from just being in the game,” Redick said, when asked if he knew Paul had not made a field goal in the first half.“We’ve got confidence in Chris,” said Crawford, who scored 10 points. “He’s one of the best players in the world. As long as he gets the shots he shoots every single night, they’ll go in sometimes and sometimes they won’t.“But we have confidence that the next one will go in. He does as well.”So, how did Paul get himself back into the game after halftime?“I didn’t think about it,” he said.Crawford, who is in his 15th season and fifth postseason, is shaking his head at this series, where homecourt advantage hasn’t meant much. He said he’s never seen anything like it.“Not like this, this has been unbelievable,” he said. “You’re seeing high-level basketball right now.”Said Griffin: “It has been entertaining.”Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he never could have imagined that after six games, each team would have gathered two victories away from home.“No, I did imagine it being seven (games),” he said. “The Spurs are probably excited to go to our place now. The way this series has turned out. … It’s a crazy series.”The Clippers shot 47.5 percent from the field, but just 22.2 percent (4 of 18) from 3-point range. The Spurs shot 43.4 percent, 42.9 (12 of 28) from beyond the arc.The most noteworthy statistic of the game perhaps came from the scoreline of Leonard, who was hounded into a 3-for-15 shooting performance. Matt Barnes, who scored eight for the Clippers, talked about that.“I’ve got two fouls in the first quarter every game,” Barnes said, “just ticky-tack stuff. So tonight the refs let me play. I was able to keep my body on him and be physical and it worked out.”Asked what he took from this game, a glum Leonard said, “Just that we lost. Just regroup as a team and get ready for Game 7.”Duncan gave the Clippers all the credit.“They played better than us,” he said. “We weren’t consistent enough and they made shots down the stretch when we were trying to get back into it. Hats off to them in that respect. But now we have to go to L.A. and win a game.”Getting back to that aforementioned 27-8 run, it came at a time when it appeared the Spurs could blow out the Clippers. They led 45-35, their fans were going wild and instead of folding and being down by even more at halftime, the Clippers went into the break tied 51-51.“It was,” Redick said, “a big stretch.”last_img read more
