Roddick overpowers Rochus

first_imgJulien Benneteau of France bounced another highly ranked American, No. 6 James Blake, out of the tournament with a 6-2, 7-6 (1) victory in their third-round match. Blake had trouble keeping the ball in play, committing 41 unforced errors to Benneteau’s 18. Guillermo Canas, who a day earlier upset Roger Federer to end the Swiss star’s winning streak at 41 matches, was ousted by Carlos Moya in the third round. Moya beat Canas, 6-4, 6-4. Janko Tipsarevic, who had defeated Lleyton Hewitt on Sunday, also lost his third-round match. David Ferrer eliminated him, 6-1, 6-3. No. 2 Rafael Nadal beat Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-4 in their night match, running his record to 5-0 against his fellow Spaniard. Roddick said having Federer, who has won the tournament the past three years, eliminated is both a plus and a minus. Rochus made 12 fewer unforced errors than his American opponent, but did not have a single ace. No. 3 Roddick finished the match on a sweltering afternoon in the desert with a crosscourt forehand winner that the Belgian couldn’t reach. Roddick thrust his fist into the air briefly in triumph, then used his shirt to wipe the sweat soaking his face. INDIAN WELLS – Andy Roddick served 18 aces, one clocked at 147 mph, on his way to a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Olivier Rochus in the third round of the Pacific Life Open on Monday. Roddick overcame 33 unforced errors with his strong serve and well-placed forehands. center_img “I want to beat Roger. Obviously, it helps out everybody, it takes the toughest player out of the draw,” Roddick said. “But at the same time, I’m going to have to figure it out one of these times anyway. “You can’t sit back and hope that he loses because that’s not going to happen a lot.” Roddick is off to a 16-3 start in 2007, but looking for his first title of the year. Each of his three defeats came at the hands of the eventual tournament champion, including a loss to Federer in the Australian Open semifinals, a semifinal loss to Andy Murray at San Jose, and a runner-up finish to Tommy Haas at Memphis. Roddick also won both his matches in the United States’ 4-1 victory last month over the Czech Republic in the first round of Davis Cup play. On the women’s side, second-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated another Russian, Elena Likhovtseva, 6-1, 7-6 (4). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Eddie Harkin’s side had won all SIX of their Division One encounters prior to this afternoon’s clash with Gaoth Dobhair.However, Gaoth Dobhair who had enjoyed a mixed bag of results so far this season earned a well-deserved three-point win in difficult conditions in Magheragallon. Both sides lined out without their Donegal players who are in action next weekend in the Ulster SFC against Tyrone.Gaoth Dobhair eventually saw off St Michael’s on a score-line of 1-09 to 1-06.

Evolution Does What Comes Physically

first_imgTwo scientists believe they have unified biology and physics into one law that both animals and falling rocks obey.  They call it the “constructal law.”  This “universal principle of evolution” explains the “universal design principles” that make fish swim and birds fly – the “physics of evolution.”  Even if evolution does not predict what animals will look like, James Marden (Penn State) and Adrian Bejan feel that the constructal law guarantees the same patterns will emerge: for instance, animals will evolve as weight-lifters against the fluids that surround them.  The story was reported in Science Daily.    “This is an exciting development for physicists, but it should also resonate with biologists,” Bejan said.  “The idea that organic evolution is analogous to the way form evolves in inanimate flow systems is a novel concept that has the potential to unite perspectives and approaches across disparate disciplines.  We suggest that the constructal law provides a powerful tool for examining and understanding variation in both the animate and inanimate compartments of nature.”  Bejan thinks of his idea as a universal law governing all nature.  “When thinking of evolution and Darwin, most people think of animals or trees.  That’s too bad, because design features are everywhere in nature.  The constructal law can be seen as a universal principle of evolution, which applies in many fields, from physics to economics.”Pebbles tumble downstream, but salmon swim upstream.  The constructal law is refuted.  Science Daily published this article without any howls of laughter.  The credibility of Science Daily is refuted.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Opinion: Is Canon Out of Touch With Consumers?

first_imgThe answer to the question is yes. Here’s why…Canon has changed the film industry and we are forever grateful, but to say that Canon is on the cutting edge of technological innovation might be an overstatement.Over the last few years, sentiment for Canon has slowly been shrinking. A few of the points listed in this article might be the reason why. We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.1. The 5D Mark IV (or Lack Thereof)The 5D Mark II was released in 2008, giving us perhaps the most innovative camera in modern indie film. No longer did you need to spend tens of thousands of dollars to get professional video with a shallow depth of field. It empowered filmmakers and shrank the gap between ‘pro’ and ‘amateur’ filmmakers.The Mark II was followed up with the Mark III, which offered better low-light abilities. While the update wasn’t incredibly groundbreaking, it was a happy update that at the very least gave us 60fps, a headphone jack, and better still photography features.However, it’s been a long time since the release of the Mark III — almost four years to be exact — and we’ve yet to receive any specs or a release date for a 5D Mark IV. This complete lack of camera update comes at a time when the industry is shifting pretty quickly to 4K video — and yet Canon 5D users are stuck with 1080p video.Sure you could go out and buy a Canon Cine Camera to get 4K, but you’re going to end up spending at least 6x the price of the Mark III. As Canon continues to push back the release date of the Mark IV, popular mirrorless camera manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic continue to release cameras that can do even more than the 5D Mark III. It should also be noted that when you do a search of the most popular Cine Cameras, Canon is nowhere near the top of the list — further proof of audience’s shifting loyalties away from Canon.2. Is the 4 Million ISO Camera Supposed to Change Things?Canon recently announced the ME20F-SH, a camera that can literally shoot footage in the dark of night. From the outside, the camera looked promising. But when test footage came in, it became very clear that this camera is not great for producing cinematic footage.There’s also the problem of cost. The ME20F-SH costs $30,000, 10x the price of the ‘King of Darkness,’ the Sony A7S. We’ve actually written a pretty extensive post on the impracticality of this new camera I highly recommend checking it out if you want to read more. The biggest takeaway here is simply that even the company’s new cameras don’t produce the same kind of excitement as other new cameras in the industry. But even this isn’t the biggest issue facing Canon…3. The Shift From DSLR to MirrorlessWhile mirrorless cameras have been around since 2004, it’s only been in the last few years that they have really taken off in popularity. This is primarily to do with the advancement of camera sensors.For many years, sensors on mirrorless cameras couldn’t compare to those found on DSLRs — but times have changed. Cameras like the Sony a7S and the Panasonic GH4 have proven that mirrorless cameras are capable of producing professional footage that is just as good (if not better) than DSLR cameras.Mirrorless cameras have many significant advantages over DSLRs. Here are just a few:Mirrorless cameras are lighter.Mirrorless cameras have inline exposure readouts.Mirrorless cameras have better image stabilization.Mirrorless cameras have better autofocus abilities (when shooting video).That’s not to say that DSLRs don’t have advantages to mirrorless cameras. Currently the biggest advantage to using a Canon DSLR lens is the fact there is an extensive line of accessories. But with new mirrorless lenses being announced almost weekly, it’s safe to say that that gap is slowly shrinking.4. Sales DeclinesCanon invested heavily in DSLRs, but it’s beginning to bite them. Sales numbers are reflecting this downward trend. Users are not impressed with Canon’s current offerings. For proof, look no further than their sales numbers. As reported by EOSDigital, Canon’s profits are down 16% this year. In the words of Andrew Ried:Canon continue to place the blame for the shrinking DSLR market in a tricky world economy especially in Europe but I am pretty sure “innovation” has a lot to do with it as well.Do you think Canon is in trouble?
