first_imgArsenal keeper Leno: We must continue to take risksby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno says the club will continue to take risks playing out from the back.Sokratis’ poor pass deep in defence allowed Tom Cleverley to make it 2-1 in Sunday’s draw with Watford, who eventually scored again to steal a point.But Leno says it is vital for his team to take risks in order to beat the opposition press.”It is still a process we have to work on,” said Leno. “We try to take the risk because if we beat the press of Watford, then there is a lot of space for our strikers.”In the first half, we did it very well but in the second we didn’t create too many chances from playing out from the back.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Mens volleyball Topranked Ohio State knocks off No 6 Lewis for 35th

Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe No. 1 Ohio State men’s volleyball team continued its winning ways Thursday night, defeating the No. 6 Lewis Flyers in four sets (25-13, 20-25, 25-14, 25-17) for the Buckeyes’ 35th straight victory. OSU has now won 32 of 52 previous meetings with Lewis and has defeated the Flyers in five of their last six matchups. Junior outside hitter Nicolas Szerszen, senior opposite hitter Miles Johnson and middle blocker Driss Guessous combined for 44 of OSU’s 59 kills. Lewis had no player reach double digits in kills, with Trevor Weiskircher leading the Flyers with nine. OSU and Lewis had a tightly contested start to the first set with the Flyers’ deficit coming to within one point at 13-12. However, a kill from Szerszen ignited a 12-1 run to secure the 25-13 set win. OSU coach Pete Hanson said that the 12-1 run showed the Buckeyes’ ability to overpower teams at the net. “It gives (the team) confidence that we have a guy like Nick or a guy like Miles and all of a sudden get on a run and just blow a game wide open,” Hanson said. “What we are trying to learn from that is we may have finished that game on a huge run, but it doesn’t carry over to set No. 2. You start fresh at 0-0.” The momentum at the end of the first set did not last for the Buckeyes going into the second set. OSU and Lewis had a total of 13 ties and three lead changes in the second half, but six kills from Flyers’ outside hitter Trevor Weiskircher proved to be too much for the Buckeyes, losing the set 25-20. Hanson thought OSU lost its identity in the second set. “We got really complacent, we lost our focus, we didn’t play with the same reckless abandon, if you will, and want to go out and pummel those guys,” Hanson said. OSU came out of the locker room hot after a rough second set, starting the third set with a 9-1 run. Szerszen and Johnson combined for 12 of the 17 OSU kills in the 25-14 set win. “We have gotten really confident playing with one another and we know how to win in different circumstances,” Johnson said. “Tonight we lost the second set and then we figured out what we needed to do.” A kill by middle blocker Driss Guessous secured an OSU win as the Buckeyes won the fourth set 25-17. The Buckeyes are now five wins away from matching Loyola’s 40-match run that was set in 2014-15. The Buckeyes will take on No. 10 Loyola at St. John’s Arena this Saturday at 7 p.m. read more

Womens Soccer Ohio State heads to Wake Forest for first round of

Ohio State senior midfielder Sarah Roberts (10) heads the ball upfield against the Wisconsin Badgers on Oct. 21st. Ohio State won 2-1. Credit: Cori Wade | For The LanternAfter awaiting a decision from the NCAA selection show, the Ohio State women’s soccer team (9-5-4, 6-2-3 Big Ten) will now compete in the first round of the NCAA tournament against Wake Forest at 7 p.m. on Friday at Spry Stadium.Senior midfielder Bayley Feist and sophomore forward Estelle Laurier have driven Wake Forest’s potent offense this season. Feist is up to six goals and Laurier has four so far this season. The team’s offense also had a season-high six points against Longwood. “I think we have a good chance to come into Wake Forest and give them a good game,” Ohio State freshman forward Kayla Fischer said.On Monday, the Buckeyes were granted an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, marking its 13th appearance in the tournament. Like Ohio State, the road for Wake Forest (8-8-1, 4-6-0 Big Ten) has remained relatively unsteady throughout the season. While Wake Forest has had no problem scoring goals, it has encountered difficulties preventing other teams from doing the same. Virginia scored five against the Demon Deacons in a loss on Sept. 30 and Duke scored three against them the following game in a loss on Oct. 4, starting a four-game losing streak. The last time both teams met was in the 2014 season opener, where the Buckeyes came away with the 1-0 victory in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This time, the stakes are even higher. After starting off the regular season with two losses, dealing with multiple injuries and falling just short of the Big Ten semifinals to Nebraska, the Buckeyes have not had an easy road to the NCAA tournament. “We’ve faced a lot of adversity this year,” Ohio State senior midfielder Sarah Roberts said. “At this point, anything that gets thrown against us we look at it more as an opportunity, an opportunity to get better, an opportunity to show the rest of the country what the Buckeyes are made of.”For the Demon Deacons, this rematch presents an opportunity for the team to put its best foot forward and gain a win in front of the home crowd.  This matchup for the Buckeyes will be the most important road test it has faced thus far. For some of the players on the team, this will be their first experience playing soccer in an NCAA tournament, including Fischer, who said the team is excited for the upcoming matchup.“Never being in a tournament before,” Fischer said, “I’m definitely excited to see what it’s going to bring. I’m expecting that our team can compete and keep going in the tournament. I know throughout the season we’ve been getting better and better. I think as long as we continue that, we have a good shot.”One key element that remains a strength for the Buckeyes is its  performance on defense. Ohio State has allowed 14 goals in 18 games this season.. “From a senior perspective,” Roberts said, “I think we’re excited that we get one more chance and one more game to kind of make our mark on the program.” read more

New geotracking technology could make you easier to find

first_img The system in place now enables someone to ping a data pack to your IP address and convert the time it takes to return into distance and this can narrow it down to around 200 kilometers. Wang’s new system utilizes this method as a first stage.For the next stage, Wang and his team realized that many universities and major corporations have their own in house servers and their IP addresses can be directly tied to a physical location. They created a catalog of some 76,000 of these landmarks on Google Maps. Once the first stage has been completed and they have narrowed down a radius of around 200 kilometers, they then locate the landmarks within that radius area and ping them. Recording the time it takes to bounce back from these landmarks can allow a comparison to the first stage and further narrow down the location.Once it has been narrowed down, they repeat that step to further narrow down the location. In large cities with many landmarks, the tracking can be extremely accurate.All of this information can be gathered without an individual’s permission. The only way to avoid being tracked is to go through a proxy server. The system is unable to go around this, however, it is able to detect a proxy server and will flag the test as unable to locate. (PhysOrg.com) — Currently, advertisers are only able to access and track your current location online to a radius of 35 kilometers without your permission. However, as presented at the Usenix Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation in Boston last week, Yong Wang, a computer scientist at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, has developed a three-stage system that would allow advertisers and others the ability to track your location to within a few hundred meters.
