Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists there are no concerns over Roberto Firmino ahead of tonight’s Champions League game at Red Star BelgradeThe Brazilian striker has only found the net once in nine games, amid suggestions that he could be in need of a rest.Aside from playing more Premier League games than any other player since the start of last season, Firmino had been actively involved in Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final.He also represented Brazil at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.But Klopp remains unconcerned over Firmino and claims that he remains a key member of the squad regardless of his lack of goals.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“No. He’s hard-working, sometimes better, sometimes a bit less, but good. That’s how it is,” Klopp told reporters on YouTube.“It will be all fine for sure. If he didn’t score in the last few games then… one in nine? All competitions? Didn’t he score against Red Star? That was the one goal he scored? Okay, good.“I am not concerned. Things like this happen. He is a very important player for us. I was not really happy with our defending first half in London and he was involved in that. That’s what I’m talking about.“In the end, everything will be fine. We know about these situations. Sometimes it is clicking easier than in other moments, that’s all. There are no concerns.”The Group C game between Red Star and Liverpool will begin at 18:55 (CEST).
Mobile World Congress 2019 • Snap serious selfies with Samsung’s Galaxy A30 and A50 See All Samsung’s Galaxy A30 was revealed Monday. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET Samsung announced a pair of fresh phones in its midrange Galaxy A series during Mobile World Congress on Monday.The Galaxy A50 and A30 are the initial models for 2019, and both feature 6.4-inch 1,080×2,340-pixel Super AMOLED Infinity-U displays, with dimensions of 158.5 by 74.7 by 7.7mm.The differences start with the cameras — the A50 has a 25-megapixel camera on the front, with 25-, 5- and 8-megapixel options on the back (continuing the triple-rear camera trend). The A30 has a 16-megapixel one on the front, and 16- and 5-megapixel cameras at the rear. Memory-wise, you can get the A50 with 4 or 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB internal storage. The A30 comes with either 3 or 4GB RAM and 32 or 64 GB internal storage.The A30 has 16- and 5-megapixel cameras on the back. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET The A50 is available in four colors: black, white, blue and coral (which is apparently “inspired by scattered light”). It also comes equipped with on-screen fingerprint unlocking.The A series may not be Samsung’s flagship Galaxy line (the S series still holds that crown), but still offers full access to its ecosystem — so you can use Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, Bixby and other features. Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone “People are changing the way they connect, and their smartphones need to keep up,” said DJ Koh, head of Samsung’s mobile business, in a release. “Our new Galaxy A Series offers improvements to the essential features that will support these live interactions, with diverse options to meet their ever-changing needs.”We’ve reached out to Samsung for details on pricing and a release date.Last week, Samsung unveiled its much-hyped flexible Galaxy Fold and a quartet of Galaxy S10 models.First published at 2:35 a.m. PT.Updated at 3:55 a.m. PT: Adds more details.

X Jen RiceApartment building at Market Square Park in downtown Houston.Deborah Whisnand has lived in an apartment complex in the Greenway-Upper Kirby neighborhood for close to 18 months.When she signed the lease, her monthly rent was $1,300. But when she recently got her renewal notice, she was shocked.“The 12-month lease, which I certainly was willing to do – I’m not going anywhere – was just under 20 percent higher,” Whisnand said. “Just under $1,600.”She was expecting some sort of an increase, just like she’s gotten at previous apartments, but not of this magnitude.“That’s quite a large amount, no doubt,” Bruce McClenny, president of ApartmentData.com, said.Rents have increased after Hurricane Harvey, he said, simply because occupancy levels have gone up more than usual.“Maybe we see 12,000 to 14,000 units rented in a year,” he said. “And we had 17,000 to 18,000 rented in a matter of two to three months.”McClenny said average rents for class A apartments have risen by more than $70 across Greater Houston since Harvey.He expects landlords to try and maintain the higher rent levels, but they might have to come back down when the many displaced homeowners move back into their repaired houses next year.

Antarctic krill provide carbon sink in Southern Ocean Citation: Krill ‘superswarm’ formation investigated (2009, October 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-10-krill-superswarm-formation.html Juvenile krill (small crustaceans resembling shrimps) gather in their trillions in the Southern Oceans to form superswarms. In the Antarctic, for example, one species of krill (Euphausia superb) forms superswarms that stretch for tens of kilometers. Until recently, no one has understood why or how they do it. So scientists with the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), led by Cambridge (UK) researcher Dr Geraint Tarling, decided to try and find out. The team used echo-sounding equipment to study over 4500 different swarms of krill in the Scotia Sea, a massive area that lies between South Georgia Island and the Antarctic Peninsula. The report, published in the journal Deep Sea Research I, described how the research team discovered there are two types of swarm: small swarms composed of adult krill, and large swarms composed of juveniles. The small swarms may be only around 50 meters long and four meters deep, and are not densely packed (about 10 krill per cubic meter). The large swarms are the “superswarms”, which can stretch for many kilometers and are about 30 meters deep. The superswarms are much denser, with up to 10 times more individual krill per cubic meter.This was the opposite of the result expected by Dr Tarling and his team, who thought the small swarms would be dense and the superswarms more diffuse. Dr Tarling said he was astonished at the density of the superswarms and the concentration into a small area of such a massive amount of biomass.The BAS team also discovered that the large swarms tended to form when there was less food available, but the reasons for the formations of superswarms were unclear. Dr Tarling said a likely explanation is that a large swarm gives an individual protection from predators such as seals and whales, and a large swarm can confuse predators. It can also be more energy efficient, which could help juveniles grow more quickly.The trade-off in forming large swarms is much greater competition for food, and this could explain why adult krill form less densely packed swarms, since they are more negatively buoyant than juveniles, and have to expend more energy in swimming. They need more food than the juveniles, and benefit from less competition.Another finding of the research that was opposite to the expectation was that superswarms are more likely to occur at night. It was previously believed this would be less likely, since krill feed at night.The habit of forming superswarms containing trillions of juveniles means that most of the young krill in the Antarctic Ocean are likely to be in just a few superswarms. This means krill may be much more susceptible to overfishing than thought previously since fishing fleets can locate and catch entire swarms. In doing so, they may be wiping out most of the krill in the Southern Oceans, and hence endangering everything else in the food chain that depends on them.More information: Variability and predictability of Antarctic krill swarm structure, Geraint A.
