The comeback of 39 year old former world champion Firat Arslan was unsuccessful after a two year break, however the Arslan Team attributes his eleventh round TKO loss to dehydration more than the punches of newly crowned WBA interim champion Stave Herelius. “That was bitter,” said trainer Michael Timm, “I’m sure that Firat would have won that fight on points.” Herelius started strong as expected, but Arslan was in command until suddenly running out of gas. Arslan spoke after spending the night in the hospital..
We have a special relationship with India and I am very pleased that an Indian national is today a leading chess player in the world. I very much hope that this will not be the last time you played together and that you will play in this country again, in different cities and not only in Moscow. Such events will certainly help to promote chess, not only in Russia but throughout the world..
“Pitching has been a bright spot, better than I thought it would be,” Laguna Coach Mike Bair said of his team’s success in its first 16 games of the season. “We knew we had a great pitcher in Grant [Wilhelm], but we’ve really had some younger guys step up and do really well on the mound.

Oct. 1 was officially declared Harry Lawrence Day for the second time by the City Council, paying tribute to his many contributions to Laguna Beach. He was previously honored with a proclamation when Cheryl Kinsman was mayor. When Deborah Cullen joined Columbia in 2012, she was given an enviable task.

Wallach Art Gallery, she would oversee its move from a set of rooms hidden away in Schermerhorn Hall for the past 30 years to an expansive, light filled space in the new Lenfest Center for the Arts on the University’s Manhattanville campus..
ALMA’s European partner, led by the European Southern Observatory (ESO), provided an important component of the correlator, 550 “next generation” circuit boards, built by the University of Bordeaux under the leadership of Alain Baudry, that increase the system’s ability to distinguish fine shades of color, or wavelength. With these filters, the light which ALMA sees can be split up into 32 times more wavelength ranges than in the initial design, and each of these ranges can be finely tuned. A section of the correlator was already being used to combine the signals from the partial array, but now the full system is complete.
