Gattuso likens Piatek to Tomasson

first_imgGennaro Gattuso has compared Milan new boy Krzysztof Piatek to Danish legend Jon Dahl Tomasson.Piatek who recently joined Milan from Genoa played in the barren draw against Napoli and his manager has seen enough to liken him to former teammate Tomasson.Tomasson was not a regular starter at Milan but scored 35 goals in three seasons, winning a Champions League and earning praise for his battling qualities.“We have to pick up from where we left off in the first 50 minutes, showing the same character,” Gattuso told Milan TV and Cited on Football Italia ahead of his side’s Coppa Italia quarter-final against Napoli on Tuesday.“We stopped dribbling in the last 30 minutes and were stretched, so all of Napoli’s qualities came out.“We must have the desire to play and show our faces, dribbling well. We need experience. We’re a young team and we need games like these.“For us to get back to being competitive, we need consistency in our performances, game and mentality.Piatek is ready to make his debut as a starter with the AC Milan shirt tomorrow night in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals against Napoli once again. Gennaro Gattuso is seriously thinking about it and a final decision will be made between tonight and tomorrow morning. pic.twitter.com/yu9JpVotxtCristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….— AC Milan Africa (@africa_milan) January 28, 2019“We’ve shown it at times, but we still have too many ups and downs. Piatek reminds me of Tomasson. He had some very specific characteristics.“Jon never spared himself in training and gave us a huge hand, also when he played from the start.“Piatek has just joined, but I like him already. He’s a curious lad who looks at photos at Milanello: he likes to observe, talk and experience the structure here first hand.“It’s something beautiful. Will he start tomorrow? Him or Cutrone will play. Caldara and Biglia yesterday did some light work with us yesterday.“They’re working to improve their physical level and I think they’ll be available in a week.“We’re very happy with them, they have great desire to return and have shown it through the commitment they’ve been putting in.”last_img read more

Pakistan now cuts bus link to India

first_imgPakistan said on Saturday it had cancelled a bus linking Lahore with India’s capital New Delhi, the last remaining public transport link between the neighbours divided by a dispute over the Kashmir region.Islamabad reacted with fury this week after India revoked the special status for the portion of Kashmir that it controls, calling the action illegal, a claim New Delhi denies.Pakistan has already cut two rail links, suspended bilateral trade and expelled India’s ambassador, all part of what it called a diplomatic effort to protest against the decision.Arshad Ali, tourism officer at Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation that runs the Pakistan leg of the journey, told Reuters the government had issued directives that meant the bus, that departs Lahore six days a week at 0600 local time, was suspended from Saturday onwards.”The operation will remain suspended till further decision,” he said.Delhi Transport Corporation, that runs the service in the other direction, did not respond to requests for comment.The service, known as the “friendship bus”, has long been seen as a symbolic link between the two countries. Launched in 1999, it has run almost continuously since, including throughout the last crisis between the two countries in February.Travellers wanting to cross the border can still do so on foot at the sole remaining open border post at Wagah, a process that often takes several hours due to stringent security checks by both sides.Fewer than 200 people a day now cross the border in the two directions, Indian and Pakistani officials at Wagah told Reuters. One official said it was unlikely the border would be closed despite the deterioration in relationships between the rivals.With no direct flights, the only other alternatives are costly and lengthy indirect routes, often via the Middle East.last_img read more


Lawyer No Apparent Justification for Antwon Rose Fatal Shooting

first_imgThe Associated PressEAST PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) — A 17-year-old Black boy fatally shot by a police officer in Pennsylvania seconds after he fled a traffic stop did not pose a threat to anyone, a lawyer for the family of the teen said.Civil rights attorney S. Lee Merritt said late Wednesday that he doesn’t see any apparent justification for the use of deadly force by an East Pittsburgh police officer that left Antwon Rose Jr. dead. Allegheny County police are conducting an independent investigation of the shooting in East Pittsburgh, a borough about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh.Leonard Hammonds II, of Penn Hills, right, points out that a Turtle Creek Police officer has his hand on his weapon during a rally in East Pittsburgh, Pa., on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, at a protest regarding the shooting death of Antwon Rose by an East Pittsburgh Police officer during a traffic stop the night before. (Steve Mellon/Pittsburgh Post-Gazette via AP)Part of the encounter was captured on video and posted to Facebook by a bystander. Officer Michael Rosfeld confirmed to a WTAE-TV reporter who went to his house Thursday that he was the officer who fired the shots but said he had not watched the news and was unaware the video even existed. Rosfeld said he could not talk about the shooting because of the open investigation.Investigators and city officials have declined to name the officer. They said he was placed on administrative leave during the investigation.The shooting has sparked some social media outrage and calls for punishment of the officer, including from rapper Nas and a handful of other celebrities. A Wednesday night protest at the East Pittsburgh police headquarters lasted for several hours and drew more than 100 people, some of whom laid down in front of a police cruiser.A second protest Thursday afternoon at the Allegheny County courthouse attracted nearly 1,000 people, including speakers decrying police use of force and gun violence. Protesters later took to the streets, shutting down a major interstate. Some sat down on Interstate 376, blocking traffic in both directions, while others chanted, “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now.”Investigators said the officer stopped the car Antwon and two other people were riding in Tuesday because it matched the description of a car reported to be involved in a shooting about 15 minutes earlier in a nearby town. As the officer took the driver into custody, the short video shows Antwon and the other passenger running from the car.The officer quickly fired three shots, all of which struck Antwon, who later died at a hospital from his injuries. The medical examiner has not said where the teen was struck.“We must emphasize that rumors of (Antwon) being involved in a separate shooting are unsubstantiated,” Merritt wrote in his statement, saying the use of deadly force seems unjustified. “We know that he was not armed at the time he was shot down, that he posed no immediate threat to anyone.”Antwon’s friends, family and teachers said he was a promising student, who volunteered at a charity, was generous and had a “million-dollar smile.”Allegheny County Police Commissioner Coleman McDonough said Wednesday that he is confident the car Antwon was in was involved in the earlier shooting, partly because a window had been shot. He said officers found two guns in the car, and that the driver was released after questioning without being charged.McDonough confirmed that Antwon was not armed and that no shots were fired at the officers.Pennsylvania law allows officers to use deadly force against a fleeing suspect in only a handful of circumstances. It’s permitted if the suspect poses a threat of immediate danger, has used or threatened lethal violence previously or possesses a lethal weapon.East Pittsburgh Mayor Louis Payne said the officer had worked for the department for two weeks and was officially sworn in a few hours before the shooting. Rosfeld confirmed to WTAE-TV that he has worked with the department almost three weeks and worked previously in the Oakmont, Harmar and University of Pittsburgh police departments.Leaders of the Pittsburgh-based Black Political Empowerment Project asked Thursday for the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office to investigate this and other police-involved shootings, citing only two instances where the Allegheny County district attorney has filed homicide charges against police officers in fatal shootings in the last 20 years.A joint statement from East Pittsburgh officials and police issued Thursday expressed condolences and sadness over Antwon’s death and asked the community to respect the investigative process. Rossfled said he has a lot of support from the local law enforcement community and from family.Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey also issued a statement Thursday saying the teen’s family has a right to answers.“I am disturbed by what I saw on the video, and I have numerous questions about exactly what happened and why,” he said.last_img read more

Random Language Model, Physical Review Letters (2019). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.122.128301 , On Arxiv: https://arxiv.org/abs/1809.01201center_img Citation: Physicist applies statistical mechanics theories to explain how children learn a language (2019, April 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-04-physicist-statistical-mechanics-theories-children.html Most parents notice that children learn a language in a standard sort of way—they pick up words as labels for things and then one day, start assembling words they have learned into sentences. Linguists have noticed that the changeover from speaking words to speaking sentences is usually quite abrupt, making many in the brain science field wonder what actually happens. In this new effort, DeGiuli proposes a theory to explain the process and uses physics theories to do it.DeGiuli starts out by suggesting that a context-free grammar (CFG), which covers most human languages, can be viewed as a physical object, conceiving it in a more physical way, such as must be the case inside the heads of people who are able to speak a language. He further proposes that a CFG can be modeled like a physical tree (not just a virtual one such as those typically used to describe CFGs)—with surfaces representing sentences that include all the words a person knows, whether they make sense or not. He then suggests that as a child hears new words and processes them, they begin to build grammar rules in their brain, some of which are deeper than others. The deepness of the rules is assigned as the brain assigns weights to different rules—those with more weight are deemed more likely to lead to sentences that make sense. It is at this point that DeGiuli introduces statistical mechanics theories into his proposal to explain how the weighting process works. He believes it is possible that the brain uses two major factors to decide how to prune branches in the grammar tree: how much a given weighting results in depth assignments within a tree, and how much they do so to arrive at surface-level assignments. In the end, he notes, it would be the sparseness of the tree that defines the level of usability of the tree to form sentences. When it reaches a certain point, the tree suddenly becomes usable and the child begins spouting complete sentences at his or her parents. Eric DeGiuli, a physicist at École Normale Supérieure, has proposed that a human language grammar can be viewed as if it were a physical object, allowing theories such as those in statistical mechanics to explain how a child learns a language. In his paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, he describes his ideas and his hopes that they might one day be associated with neurological evidence.
