Liverpool fans miss victory in Genk after travelling to Gent by mistake

first_imgShare on Pinterest Soccer Supporters of the two Belgian clubs will hopefully avoid making a similar error next month when Genk, currently sixth in the Belgian Pro League, host third-placed Gent in a domestic encounter on Sunday 10th November.Despite Liverpool powering to an emphatic away victory, manager Jürgen Klopp said afterwards that he was unhappy with the performance of his players.The result was also marred by Liverpool fans displaying an offensive banner depicting Divock Origi. The club is now investigating, saying: “We will look to identify those responsible for bringing it into the stadium and act accordingly.” Jürgen Klopp KAA Gent (@KAAGent)🇧🇪Als iemand deze twee kent of hun gegevens heeft, zeg hen dat ze vanavond welkom zijn in de Ghelamco Arena voor #GntWol! 🇬🇧 If anybody knows these two or has their contact details, tell ‘em they’re invited for our game against @VfL_Wolfsburg tonight.https://t.co/rtr90pYMqoOctober 24, 2019 Reuse this content Share on Twitter Topics Genk Share on Facebook Liverpool Two travelling Liverpool fans were forced to watch Wednesday evening’s 4-1 Champions League victory in Genk on TV after going to the Belgian city of Gent by mistake.Belgian media reported on Thursday morning that the two unnamed supporters watched the match in an Irish bar in the Belgian city of Gent, around 80 miles from Genk – which is close to the Dutch border – including a photo of the disgruntled pair holding their match tickets.According to the report it was just 30 minutes before kick-off when they realised their error, leaving little time to complete the 90-minute journey to the Luminus Arena, where two goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain helped the Reds to a 4-1 win.The fans had reportedly spent €70 each on their match tickets and €150 each on train tickets, a total of €440 just to watch their team in action from a foreign pub.But there was some good news: KAA Gent, who face Wolfsburg in the Europa League on Thursday evening, extended an invitation via Twitter for the pair to attend the match.

The Big Bang Theory ends but Dr Amy Farrah Fowler lives on

first_img Tags 50 Photos Comments Share your voice 2019 TV shows you can’t misscenter_img 6 Mayim Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life. Presley Ann In a season of long-running shows bringing their stories to a (mostly satisfying) end, The Big Bang Theory did just that: wrap up the adventures of very smart people who live in a shared apartment and spend their free time playing Settlers of Catan.Along with physicists Sheldon and Leonard, we also said goodbye to a character who joined in season 3 and soon moved in to the Big Bang building permanently.Bespectacled neurobiologist Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, alumni of Harvard and, spoiler, wife of Sheldon, represents the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Dr. Amy joins the ranks of female TV characters working in STEM, alongside Cosima in Orphan Black, Dr. Temperance Brennan in Bones and Mindy Lahiri from The Mindy Project, to name a few.Played by Mayim Bialik (of Blossom fame), Dr. Amy made her entrance as a love interest to socially inept child prodigy Sheldon Cooper, wooing him with lines like, “All forms of physical contact, up to and including coitus, are off the table.” A true TV love story rivaling Jon Snow and Ygritte soon blossomed, though with less death and more intellectual discussion.Adept at both comedy and being really smart, Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life, having completed her Ph.D. at UCLA in 2007. Bialik has written four books, one of which, Girling Up, focuses on the many struggles girls face on their way to adulthood.The Big Bang Theory may have ended after 12 seasons on CBS (disclosure: CBS is CNET’s parent company) but Bialik continues to pave the way for budding female scientists. Speaking to CNET, she touched on women working in STEM and the reasons behind their low representation. “There’s a certain amount of hand wringing that I do about it, but part of it is also understanding that there’s a shift in the way we see women at all in any profession,” Bialik says.foto4.jpgA love story for the ages. CBS Photo Archive Women historically haven’t pursued these kinds of careers, Bialik says, noting that the industrial revolution brought in the first shift of female involvement in sciences in recent history, with World War II seeing women participating in different ways.”It was not so long ago that women were not even encouraged to work outside of the home,” Bialik says.A recent study on STEM looked into the number of women who earned degrees in those subjects. The study, from the National Center for Education Statistics, covered an eight-year period, starting in 2008, and found that the number of female students who’d been granted a STEM degree or certificate had increased by 48 percent over that period.Despite the progress, embarking on a STEM career for a woman isn’t necessarily an easy decision, Bialik stresses. “As a woman, the decisions you make about when to have children is going to largely be determined by what kind of career you have and how the government has established you to have support while you’re in your child-bearing years,” Bialik says.The work itself may not always be appealing either.”Girls and boys do tend to for the most part want to think and learn differently,” Bialik says. “The notion of being a lone scientist in a laboratory does not appeal to most girls.”But the notion of being in the field, working with other people, working with animals, those are things that girls find more interesting.”Some of women’s hesitation to take on STEM careers can be traced to the classroom when they’re growing up.”We have to remember there are social dynamics that are going to work on boys and girls in the classroom that exist elsewhere in society,” Bialik says.On whether she was afraid of putting her hand up in the classroom to answer a question, she says: “A lot of the boys are raised to be very confident, our culture emphasizes that, and for me, there was a lot of social pressure.”I felt very embarrassed if I got something wrong.”The issue may change, it’ll just take time.”So again, I think a lot of that is what our culture is like in the patriarchy, and it’s something that is absolutely shifting and will continue to shift,” Bialik says.”But … that’s not something that’s going to happen overnight.”Looking ahead, Bialik advocates girls meeting and having mentor opportunities with women working in the sciences to hear firsthand about the choices those women made, why they made them, and to show that STEM careers can be creative, exciting and dynamic.”It’s not just sitting alone in a laboratory,” Bialik says.

Get a First Look at the Worlds Largest Airplane

first_imgJune 1, 2017 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos aren’t the only tech billionaires with their eyes set on space.Microsoft co-founder and Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen has been hush-hush about the massive aircraft he’s been constructing, but now it’s finally ready for testing.Allen’s “Stratolaunch” is the world’s largest aircraft, with a 385-foot wingspan and a height of 50 feet. The airplane features six engines — the same used on Boeing 747 aircrafts — and can carry up to 250,000 pounds of fuel. Without fuel, the plane weighs 500,000 pounds. With fuel, it can reach a whopping 1.3 million pounds. It features 28 wheels to get all that mass moving.Related: What Will It Be Like to Fly in a Blue Origin Spaceship?The aircraft has been in the works for years in an area of California’s Mojave Desert. The company’s goal is to have a launch demonstration by 2019, shared Stratolaunch’s CEO Jean Floyd. “Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be actively conducting ground and flight line testing at the Mojave Air and Space Port,” Floyd said in a statement.This plane isn’t going to fly you to your next vacation destination. Instead, it will be used to launch rockets. Partnered with Orbital ATK, Allen’s Stratolaunch company has plans to “air launch” the Pegasus XL rocket, which delivers small satellites into orbit.So how exactly does that work? With the rockets attached to the bottom of the aircraft, the Stratolaunch will reach a flying altitude of about 35,000 feet — similar to that of commercial airplanes. “As the launch vehicle rockets into orbit, Stratolaunch will fly back to a runway landing for reloading, refueling and reuse,” Allen said in a blog post last year.Related: 8 Inspirational Quotes From Space Pioneer John GlennLike other tech entrepreneurs dipping into the aerospace industry, the primary goal of Allen’s Stratolaunch is to reduce costs and create a more efficient way to get small satellites to space.“When such access to space is routine, innovation will accelerate in ways beyond what we can currently imagine,” Allen said. “That’s the thing about new platforms: When they become easily available, convenient and affordable, they attract and enable other visionaries and entrepreneurs to realize more new concepts.” Register Now »center_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min readlast_img read more
