“It’s my favorite match of the year. Our kids know how much it means for us to win against them and our seniors wanted to make sure that they could seal up their fourth win in a row.” That was the reaction of Arcata High School wrestling coach Eric Mikolai after his Tigers wrestling team defeated Big 5 rival McKinleyville 63-18 on Wednesday night in a Humboldt-Del Norte league match.Arcata won six of the seven matches (seven other were won by forfeit) and five of those wins came by pin with …

A senior Boeing 777 captain, Simon Hardy, believes he has calculated exactly where the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 may have crashed into the Southern Indian Ocean.The position is S38.082 E87.400 (latitude and longitude using decimals rather than minutes).According to David Learmount of FlightGlobal arguably the world’s most respected airline safety editor the location given by the experienced captain “is not fundamentally at odds with the present MH370 search assumptions, being in much the same part of the southeastern Indian Ocean.”Captain Hardy’s mapsMalaysia rejects evidenceHowever Mr Learmount adds that it is “just outside the core target area currently being trawled by a search team led by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).”Capt Simon Hardy’s calculations are based on a combination of data which include the Inmarsat satellite communication “handshake arcs”, his expertise in 777 performance calculation, and some mathematical “reverse engineering” of the navigation geometry known to apply to this flight.“Hardy is aware that many very able people have theories about MH370, not least those advising the search, but believes the result of his calculations is worthy of examination, and hopes the ATSB will find the result useful,” said Mr Learmount. “I respectfully recommend it to the MH370 search team,” Hardy told FlightGlobal.Captain Hardy is an experienced airline pilot and currently works as a senior 777 captain for a major international airline. “Like other aviators he was distressed by the MH370 loss, and his concern that relatives of those on board might never know what happened inspired him to begin a geometric investigation of known MH370 navigational facts. He emerged with a set of conclusions that enabled him to isolate what he believes to be MH370’s actual track,” said Mr Learmount.He explained his rationale and how the result emerged to FlightGlobal thus: “Rather than picking speeds and a route at random and making them fit with the [satcom handshake] arcs, I have managed to let the arcs tell us both the speed and direction, and finally a location – the exact track between arcs 4 and 6 – where it was doing that speed and heading. I have ‘reverse engineered’ it.”He continues: “I was expecting to have to deduce a path from waypoint ANOKO [where Hardy calculates the 777 first turned southward] for the aircraft to get to this identified track across arcs 4-6, but then found to my amazement that the track line, when extended north from the 5th arc over a very large distance, went within 2nm of ANOKO. This was the final and strongest eureka moment!”Mr Learmount adds: “The “reverse engineering” involved testing a series of plausible tracks southward over the Indian Ocean from the 777’s last known position, and discovering the only trajectory that – uniquely – matches the ratio of actual elapsed times between the consecutive Inmarsat/MH370 “handshakes”. He then found, subsequently, that certain known data, when tested against that navigational trajectory, made sense. For example, on that identified track, the actual elapsed time between “handshake arcs” would occur if the 777 was flying at its long-range cruise speed – possibly a coincidence, but a likely choice by the person directing the flight.The ATSB told AirlineRatings.com that while they had not yet seen Captain Hardy’s report they “remained confident in their analysis and will continue the search in the high priority areas we have determined.”
Madiba is in everyone’s thoughts and prayers.(Image: Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory)We share the joy of the Mandela family at the discharge of Nelson Mandela after 89 days in hospital.May he find peace and comfort in his home, among his relatives and friends, so that his continuing medical care can proceed with dignity.We are all grateful for the outstanding care he received in hospital from a large team of medical specialists and nurses, which rescued him from the brink and which allowed for this miracle.Even in grave illness, Madiba has continued to provide a model to the nation and to the world with his immense grace and fortitude. We have, all of us, much to learn from him.The former president was admitted to a Pretoria hospital on 8 June with a lung condition – and the world stopped and prayed for his recovery. During his hospital stay he was visited by family, friends and colleagues. Messages poured in from across the globe and well-wishers left cards and messages outside the hospital and his Houghton home.It is to this home that Mandela returned on Sunday morning, 1 September, where he will continue to receive intensive medical care from his team of doctors.According to the Presidency, his condition “remains critical and is at times unstable”, but his home has been adapted to cater for his medical needs. “The health care personnel providing care at his home are the very same who provided care to him in hospital. If there are health conditions that warrant another admission to hospital in future, this will be done,” the Presidency said.

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Your wedding ring might’ve been brand-new when you bought it, but part of it is actually billions of years old. Scientists have traced the origins of some of Earth’s most precious metals back to a massive collision between two neutron stars, 4.6 billion years ago. The event occurred 100 million years before the formation of Earth and roughly 1,000 light years from the gas cloud that became our solar system.That’s relatively close to us, in space terms. According to the researchers behind the finding, if the explosion had occurred today the resulting radiation “could outshine the entire night sky.”Astrophysicists Szabolcs Marka from Columbia University and Imre Bartos from the University of Florida reached their findings by analyzing meteorite isotopes and comparing this data to simulations of the Milky Way. They theorize that a neutron star collision likely created 0.3 percent of Earth’s heaviest elements, including valuable metals such as gold, platinum and uranium.

[Representational Image]Wikimedia commonsThe Congress on Friday moved the Election Commission against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah for allegedly “dragging” the armed forces in politics repeatedly.Congress leaders Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Randeep Singh Surjewala also raised the issues of Union Minister Smriti Irani submitting “contradictory affidavits” to the Election Commission on her educational qualifications and also about a web series on Modi.Talking to the media after meeting the EC, Singhvi said PM, the President of the ruling party and its other leaders are “shamelessly dragging the armed forces for cheap politics.””Never in the history has this happened,” he said, adding the web series on Modi is also a violation of the Model Code of Conduct as it is biographical in nature and it should be banned immediately.”If the person makes another violation, he/she should be barred from two days of campaigning, similarly three and four days for the third and fourth violation,” he said.Speaking about Smriti Irani’s qualification, Surjewala said the Congress is not commenting on her qualification, saying they believe that even the illiterate can also hold high positions.”But the question is the people have been cheated and the Minister has lied to them about her qualifications.”The Congress has submitted a memorandum to the EC over Irani “repeatedly lying” about her qualifications.”There is no information about the degree of the PM and also his favourite minister Irani. There are no classmates of the PM and Irani who are coming out. This is a very serious issue as the people have been cheated repeatedly.”Surjewala demanded that the EC should disqualify Irani for changing her qualifications multiple times.He also said that there should be a strict action and Union Minister Maneka Gandhi should be sacked for her remarks and for “dividing people”.Addressing an election rally, she had said that she would like to win without the support of Muslims and would not want to give jobs to them if they did not vote for her.The party also urged the Election Commission to issue directions to all Chief Electoral Officers, booth level officers and other election officials to ensure proper functioning of EVMs during the Lok Sabha elections. It also sought an immediate investigation into the malfunctioning of the EVMs and other issues reported from various parts of the country during the first phase of polls on April 11.It said posters of Gen VK Singh were posted right outside a polling station. The party also alleged that BJP candidate from Tehri Garhwal parliamentary constituency “printed voter slips on her election pamphlet”.The party said it was making the fifth request for “urgent and necessary” intervention against Modi’s “continued and brazen violation” of the Model Code of Conduct and in particular the “hateful and divisive comments by him”, Shah and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in election rallies at Nanded, Nagpur and Meerut.In its representation against Irani, Congress called for immediate action for filing “false affidavit”, saying it attracts “up to six months imprisonment and/or fine”.
