Bayern also after Thomas

first_imgThomas is not only one of the most important footballers for Simeone in Atlético (the third with the most minutes, the second on the field, with 2,859 ‘) it is also one of the most coveted pieces on the rojiblanco club market. The Arsenal thing is old, he has been behind the midfielder for months, a priority for Mikel Arteta. But in recent days, competitors have emerged. Paris Saint Germain (PSG) this week. Bayern Munich this morning. “Look for a replacement for Javi Martínez and they have seen the perfect footballer in Ghana,” he explained. Sports world although a year later the signing of Lucas Hernández did not go as expected in Germany, as Matthaüs slipped yesterday.But not only that, from Manchester United, Río Ferninand recommends the English club also to sign, in addition to Saúl. “Perhaps I would go to find Thomas Partey of Atlético de Madrid or Ndidi of Leicester to reinforce the midfield. Another player that I like is Saúl Ñíguez. He is a very, very good player in the midfield,” the former soccer player recommended the program. Beautiful Game. Closer to renewal with AtléticoEveryone loves Thomas, whose clause, at the moment of 50 million, it is beautiful and cheap for the greats of Europe. Atlético’s intention is to increase it to 100. In fact, as AS has learned, before the stoppage of competitions due to the COVID-19 crisis, the footballer, one of the “most discreet” salaries in the Cholo staff, diametrically opposed to its importance (in the salary table it is below Herrera, Vrsajko or Vitolo), he was considering the possibility of going to the English club. Something that has changed during these days, being now, increasingly closer to that firm that has been waiting since October so that Atletico, Cholo, the fans can breathe and Arsenal, PSG and also Bayern start looking the other way.last_img read more

New technologies driving the future

first_imgAn innovative new way of creating asphalt has councils, environmentalists and manufacturers excited about the possibilities of recycled inventions that are proving to lower CO2 emissions.The relatively new concept, a product of manufacturing company Downer EDI Limited, with Victorian surfacing manager George Hatzimanolis at the forefront, in conjunction with Close the Loop and Planet Ark, has found bodies in old cartridges and ink toner improve the properties of asphalt, which can sustainably create new roads.“We’ve been working quite a long time in terms of lowering our CO2 emissions through the manufacture and placement of asphalt; the goal was to reduce our reliance on natural resources as much as possible and have less detrimental effect on the environment whilst maintaining our road network for future use,” Hatzimanolis told Neos Kosmos. “The toner which encapsulates the ink, we found through research with Close the Loop, has a very high end use to improve the properties of asphalt and we were able to kick off a partnership there and utilise recycled toner to improve the properties of asphalt, which actually reduces our reliance on using virgin materials.”Whilst the invention hasn’t completely cut the reliance on natural materials, it has drastically reduced the need to do so, saving time, money and the environment. And with environmental consciousness at the forefront of most contemporary policies and ethics, the development has been embraced by local governments and councils, which Hatzimanolis says is just as sustainable as original content – with an estimated lifespan lasting 15 to 20 years.“From all the performance testing that we’ve done there’s been no detriment to any of the performance characteristics – if anything there’s actually been an improvement on some performance parameters, so the expected life is equivalent or better than utilising virgin or traditional asphalts.”“By reusing materials that are at the end of their product life and effectively waste materials that would otherwise end up in landfill, we’ve been able to reduce our costs rather than having a reliance on excavating raw material.”“The data that we’ve had provided from third parties who are professional environmental consultants suggested a 20 to 25 per cent reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions through the use or our low CO2 asphalt range.”Inspired by the new technology, Hatzimanolis says he and Downer are continuously testing new possibilities, presented through the use of recyclable products, to save landfill, the environment, time and costs.
