Mesut Ozil sends message to Arsenal fans after demoralising Wolves draw

first_img 1/1 Comment ‘Good to be back in Premier League action,’ Ozil wrote on Instagram.‘But not happy about the result at home. Many things to work on. We have to keep moving forward with our heads held high.’Asked to assess Ozil’s contribution, meanwhile, Emery said: ‘He worked, he played well and I think he has quality.’Arsenal could be 10 points adrift of the top four pace should they lose at Leicester next weekend and result elsewhere go against them.Emery added: ‘I’m disappointed with the result above all because I think the players tried, the players worked, and the most difficult thing against Wolves is to score the first goal and take advantage in the result.‘We needed to score the second goal to take more confidence than we had at 1-0 and also because they are a strong team defensively, but also they have the structure offensively. They have the habit of playing matches with that result and being consistent to try to score and draw.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

When they equalised, we tried. We got into the box, we created some chances which weren’t very clear but we created them. ‘‘Also, in the last moments when we were pushing a lot, they had good transitions, one or two transitions when they didn’t score.‘I think it was an equal match and maybe we deserved it a little more than them, but we struggled. In a game against them, when you have that opportunity after 1-0 to get more of an advantage, you need to take it.

Team finds new type of bacteria

first_imgA team of researchers from USC and Aarhus University in Denmark has discovered bacteria with the ability to transmit electrons over large distances. They published their discovery in the science journal Nature on Wednesday.They found that Desulfobulbus bacterial cells have the ability to transmit electrons as far as 1 centimeter, or thousands of cell lengths away, as part of their respiration and ingestion processes.“To move electrons over these enormous distances in an entirely biological system would have been thought impossible,” Moh El-Naggar, assistant professor of physics at USC and co-author of the paper, said in a release.Research began after Aarhus scientists discovered an electric current on the sea floor several years ago. The experiments conducted by USC and Aarhus researchers found that the apparently inexplicable currents were created by unknown multicellular bacteria that function as living power cables.The cells survive through a chemical reaction: the cells that live in an oxygen-deficient zone oxidize hydrogen sulfide, a process that provides oxygen for other cells on the top.“You have feeder cells on one end and breather cells on the other, allowing the whole living cable to survive,” El-Naggar said in a release.Researchers from both universities collaborated on physical evaluations of this long-distance electron transfer. El-Naggar and his colleagues had previously used some of the methods he used in his research, including scanning-probe microscopy and nanofabrication.El-Naggar was recently named one of the Popular Science magazine’s article “Ten Young Geniuses Shaking Up Science Today.” He collaborated on the paper with Lars Peter Nielsen from the Aarhus University Department of Bioscience. The paper was funded by the European Research Council, the Danish National Research Foundation, the Danish Foundation for Independent Research and the German Max Planck Society.last_img read more

Travel Managers All Time High First Quarter

first_imgChief Operating Officer – Grant CampbellTravel Managers All Time High First QuarterHaving set the ball rolling with strong sales in January, TravelManagers has gone on to smash it out of the park with a record-breaking first quarter for 2019: a result which Chief Operating Officer, Grant Campbell, explains as the culmination of a strong January and best-ever trading month in February followed by a record March.“Year on year, we have experienced more than seven percent growth in our first quarter, thanks in large part to strong sales for long-haul destinations. The destination with the highest percentage growth was Asia, with an increase of more than 17 percent, which, when combined with a seven percent increase for Africa, contributed to a 70 percent increase in total adventure travel sales.”Campbell reports that TravelManagers has also recorded double-digit growth in both Australia and New Zealand, at 11.5 percent and 11 percent respectively.“We also achieved close to ten percent growth in one of our most high-value destinations, Europe,” he adds. “It’s very pleasing to see strong results occurring across all destinations, rather than being confined to just a few.”Other categories to have recorded strong results in the first quarter include guided coach tours and customised holiday packages, which have increased by 27 percent and 21 percent respectively.“These categories tend to feature more extensive, detailed itineraries: it’s a great indication that our personal travel managers (PTMs) are continuing to focus on designing holiday experiences that are individually tailored to their clients’ needs.”Sports-related travel has also increased significantly year-on-year, and although it represents a relatively small percentage of TravelManagers’ total sales volume, Campbell describes this achievement as a hallmark of the company’s overall philosophy.“We have a network of PTMs who among them represent a vast range of interests when it comes to travel, and every area of the company is designed to foster that entrepreneurial spirit so that they can grow their businesses by pursuing those interests.”When asked to predict what lies ahead for the remainder of 2019, Campbell points to the previous year’s results.“Every year since TravelManagers began, we have achieved a new record for first quarter sales, which has always served as a strong foundation for the year ahead. Whilst we can expect this year to present its share of challenges along the way, we’re off to a great start and have every reason to expect great things from 2019.”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.About TravelManagersTravelManagers is Australia’s market leader and biggest home-based travel business operating in all States & Territories.
