Wenger: Klopp has cash to cope with demands

first_imgBut Klopp made 11 changes for the Reds’ 2-2 FA Cup third round draw at Exeter on Friday.The former Borussia Dortmund chief says the biggest difference between managing in England rather than Germany is the number of games.But Wenger, now in his 20th season at Arsenal, insisted Klopp should be able to adapt to the English game, especially with the financial resources available at Anfield.“I must say you get that from everybody who comes to England at the start because you have to adapt to the English style,” Wenger told reporters on Monday.“I was like that, and I’m still in favour of a winter break, but without losing the traditions of English football. That is play over Christmas, and maybe have a break in January.“But I believe as well that we go a little bit overboard because today the English clubs are in a financial situation to have a squad of 25 top, top level players.“It’s not like it was 25 years ago, so we cannot always complain that we play too much because we have players who can rotate, players who want to play.“In every club now, when I look at the bench I am quite impressed with the players who are there and can play, so I don’t believe that it’s like we have 13 players who have to play every single game.”Klopp has introduced his successful ‘gegenpressing’ style at Anfield after it helped him to five major honours during his time in charge of Dortmund.But the physical exertion required to succeed with such a method of play has been highlighted by some as a reason for the number of injuries accumulating at Liverpool.Wenger dismissed that theory, saying: “I don’t think you can explain the injuries of the players by the intensity of the game.“First of all it’s difficult for me to assess this situation because I don’t know exactly what’s happening. Every injury is an individual case.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s head coach Arsene Wenger addresses a press conference in Munich, southern Germany on November 3, 2015 (AFP Photo/Christof Stache)LONDON, January 12 – Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has no reason to complain about his team’s fixture pile-up because of the vast wealth enjoyed by top Premier League clubs.Wenger’s league leaders face Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday as Klopp struggles with a severe injury list, and to make matters worse Liverpool face a run of six games in 18 days.last_img read more

How IT Leaders Can Save Money on Software by Upgrading Hardware

first_imgRecently at Intel, we were faced with an important question: Are our data centers driving up our software costs?After several rounds of research and testing, we found our answer. When running software that is licensed on a “per-core” basis, the answer is probably “yes.” In the past few years, many enterprise applications, such as Microsoft Windows Server 2012, have started licensing based on computing power. Rather than licensing based on users or physical processors, some software providers are now offering the option to purchase licenses based on the number of cores you’re using in your server cluster.By upgrading to single-socket servers, companies are experiencing a modest increase in performance while significantly decreasing their software costs. As Intel CIO Kim Stevenson revealed in a recent interview, we know from experience:We are seeing up to 35% performance increase in our Electronic Design Automation application workloads. We have deployed more than 5,000 of these servers, achieving better rack density and power efficiency, while delivering higher application performance to Intel silicon design engineers.By moving from one two-socket server to four single-socket servers, we have reduced the number of cores in use while retaining equal throughput. Since there are fewer cores in a single-socket server cluster than there are in a two-socket cluster, the cost of any per-core software licensing can be dramatically reduced.It’s a win-win: By upgrading to single-socket clusters, we’re seeing a 35 percent increase in performance while reducing the need to add software licenses. If your data center seems to be causing higher software costs, it might be time to re-think your server clusters.For more information on optimizing your data center, check out the Intel Server Configurator tool.

How the ghost knifefish became the fastest electrical discharger in the animal kingdom

first_img By Moheb CostandiMar. 27, 2018 , 2:00 PM How the ghost knifefish became the fastest electrical discharger in the animal kingdom The South American ghost knifefish (pictured) may not be the brightest spark in the animal kingdom, but it certainly is the most persistent. It has a specialized organ in its tail containing a small group of cells that can discharge electricity at frequencies approaching 2000 times per second, the fastest in the animal kingdom.To find out how the ghost knifefish does this, researchers compared the gene encoding the voltage-gated sodium channel, a protein essential for generating electrical signals, in the ghost knifefish with those of the glass knifefish, an electric relative, and the channel catfish, a nonelectric species. They found that the gene was duplicated in ghost knifefish approximately 14.5 million years ago, then acquired several mutations over the subsequent 2 million years, which made the channel fire more frequently and led to it being synthesized by nerve cells in the spinal cord as well as in muscle cells, the team reports today in PLOS Biology. The fish uses these electrical sparks to navigate, detect objects, and communicate.The scientists say the findings could provide new clues about the genetic basis of epilepsy and certain inherited muscle diseases, which are associated with mutations in sodium channel genes.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)center_img blickwinkel/Alamy Stock Photo last_img read more
