Altuve, the Venezuelan ‘killer’ that threatens Atlético

first_imgIt is second top scorer of FirstThere is no doubt that the Venezuelan attacker has earned the chance to be on everyone’s lips. With seven goals in four games and ten in total, Oriana has managed to sneak into the top goalscorers of Primera. Specifically, the second in the race for the pichichi, only behind the Barca Jenni Hermoso (15 goals). For now, he has already matched his figure last season, when he scored 10 goals in 28 games. “I want to make 15 goals, at least. It is the figure that I have marked, “he said at the beginning of this campaign. And the truth is that it is very aimed at achieving it.With twelve matches played to date, Altuve is shown at his best level. And the team thanks him. Almost 60% of the goals of the Vallecano team come out of their boots. Or what is the same, Ten of the seventeen goals of the team led by Carlos Santiso are signed. A scoring streak that now threatens an Atleti who has little hope left before revalidating the league title. Five points behind Barça, a red and white defeat against Rayo would mean giving up the chance to be crowned again. The hopes are still alive. Oriana and ten more will depend on whether they leave frustrated Vallecas or not.For the franjirrojo team, it is not a match either in terms of ambitions. At stake is being able to storm the fourth place. If they sign the victory in this derby, they would chain five consecutive games without losing and also give the first great joy of the year to a hobby that, for now, is very proud of its women’s team. “I would choose Atleti to play at the Estadio de Vallecas”, Oriana Altuve (27 years old) said in an interview with AS. The Venezuelan forward will not be able to fulfill her desire in this 2020, since the derby will be played tomorrow (1:00 pm) in the modest C. D. Rayo Vallecano, but the player has already shown that against the rojiblanco team the matches are special. Because he is the current champion of the First Iberdrola and because he is the neighboring rival. And is that the absence of Real Madrid in this category has given greater importance to crossings between athletic and Rayistas, whose history in women’s football is loaded with successes (three leagues, a Cup and an International Women’s Cup).Altuve, who in the Rayo dressing room is part of the group The Panchis (with Argentine Yael Oviedo and Ruth Bravo and Chile’s Camila Sáez and Carla Guerrero), it will not only come forward to the derby. That of Caracas has been shown in a great state of form in recent games, scoring the team’s last seven goals in the league. A streak that impresses the swollen franjirroja, who has gone from suffering to see his team in a very comfortable position of the table, and that scares his rivals.last_img read more

ScienceShot: The Climate of Middle-Earth

first_imgOne does not simply model the climate of Mordor; unless, of course, you are the University of Bristol’s Dan Lunt, who has created a climate simulation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Using supercomputers and a model originally developed by the U.K. Met Office, his study compares Middle-earth’s climate with those of our (modern) and the dinosaur’s (Late Cretaceous) worlds. The Middle-earth model (pictured, showing predicted ground coverage: with grass in light green, trees in darker green, desert in yellow, and ice in white) reveals that the Shire—home to the Hobbits—would enjoy weather much like England’s East Midlands, with an average temperature of 7°C and about 61 cm of rainfall each year. An epic journey to Mount Doom, however, would see a shift in climate, with the subtropical Mordor region being more like Los Angeles or western Texas. The study—released today on the University of Bristol’s website and available in English, Elvish, and Dwarvish—also shows that the elves probably sailed from the Grey Havens because of that region’s prevailing easterly winds, while the dry climate east of the Misty Mountains is formed by a rain shadow. Lunt, who undertook the work in his spare time, hopes his work might create interest in the possibilities offered by climate modeling. His paper shows how any climate (imagined, real, or future) can be simulated, he notes, while discussing both the strengths and limitations of such models as well as the importance of understanding how climates are affected by increased levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.See more ScienceShots.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(*)last_img read more
