Former referee and ex-UEFA chief Pierluigi Collina has reiterated his stand that VAR must remain at the discretion of match officials and not football managers.Collina recently made it clear football was a unique case compared to other sports despite calls from so many quarters to reform the VAR with its application coming under scrutiny in Serie A this season.“We can’t consider giving Coaches the chance to consult the VAR like in other sports,” he said from the Festival of Sport in Trento according to Football Italia.England and Bulgaria on a collision course over racism George Patchias – September 13, 2019 England’s concerns over racism in Bulgaria has sparked a furious row.Recently England manager Gareth Southgate expressed his concern over racist abuse being aimed at…“Unlike volleyball and basketball, where the vast majority of infractions are objective, in football, there’s more interpretation by the referee.“Once a pool of people analyses all the images available, this pool will have a better view of what happens on the field than a Coach.”The VAR is currently used in the Bundesliga, La Liga, the Serie A and there has been a lot of controversy surrounding it.
The borough owns the surface and mineral estate of several parcels near Anchor Point, two of which were purchased by the borough for use by the Anchor Point Fire & Emergency Medical Service Area. The assembly passed the ordinance 8-1, at their meeting on Tuesday, November 20. Assemblymember Willy Dunne was the only vote in opposition. Hilcorp currently has oil and gas leaseholds of surrounding parcels and is working on production plans for the new lease area. The negotiated royalty rate with Hilcorp is 12.5 percent, with the intent that 9.75 percent of the royalties would be distributed as revenue to Anchor Point Fire and Emergency Medical Service Area. Assemblymember Dale Bagley: “Oil and gas is what makes the Kenai Peninsula go around, and makes Alaska do well. I am happy that there is a well down there, and I support drilling anywhere on the Kenai Peninsula.”

(Phys.org)—Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) on Monday announced its launch of 16-core Opteron 6300 server chips. This is its newest series in server processors based on the chip designer’s Piledriver core architecture. The Opteron 6300 family has models with four, eight, 12 or 16 processor cores (up to 16 cores per socket for scaling in “thread-intensive” environments). AMD says the processors are designed for “virtualized server platforms that are central to private and public cloud deployments, big data systems and high-performance computing (HPC) clusters.” This is a sequel to its 6200 series; the 6300 series “Piledriver” chips show better speed than the 6200 series. More information: Press release Quad-Core AMD Opteron Processor Family Expands with New Low-Power Options The speed improvement is 40 percent—up to 40 percent higher performance per watt than the prior generation, according to AMD. That makes the new 6300 launch especially suitable for businesses running large-scale software systems, said AMD.Data centers are attracted to many-core processors for their needs, and the 6300 family should be attractive at data centers with heavy workloads. Dell thinks so. A spokesperson said, in the AMD press release, that the 6300 series can offer its customers performance gains beneficial for cloud computing, big data, and high growth data-center applications. Technical details include AMD Virtualization technology for virtualized environments, up to four memory channels with up to 1866 MHz memory, and support for ultra-low voltage 1.25v memory.Servers from Dell and HP based on the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors will be available by the end of the year. AMD said the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processor will also be leveraged as part of a supercomputing deployment at Indiana University.The school’s earlier Big Red supercomputer is being replaced with Big Red II, for high-performance parallel computing, capable of performing one quadrillion floating-point operations per second (1 petaflop). The school provided details on the Big Red II computing environment. There will be two AMD X86-64 processors with 16 cores each, the nodes providing 32 cores and 64 GB of memory per node; plus GPU-enabled compute nodes, containing one AMD X86-64 processor and one NVIDIA GPU, with these nodes providing 32 GB of memory. All compute nodes are connected through the Cray Gemini interconnect.The 6300 launch this week follows AMD’s October “ambidextrous” announcement that it will be taking a new strategic move to bridge x86 and ARM processors for cloud and data center servers. The company said its goal in doing so is to offer desirable performance-per-watt for dense cloud computing solutions. The first 64-bit ARM-based processors for servers are expected in 2014.
