Der Turm – La Torre — Geocache of the Week

But you might not know of another submerged city, Curon, located near the Austrian border in Italy. Submerged in 1950, the town exists now only in the memories of its former inhabitants, and as one lone church steeple emerging defiantly from the water. You can pay homage to the sunken metropolis (no scuba gear required) when you find Der Turm – La Torre, our Geocache of the Week.In the late 1930s, demand for a source of renewable electricity was on the rise. At the time, the Italian government made the decision to build a dam to harness and generate electricity for northern Italy. There was only one catch—creating the new lake would flood the tiny village of Curon. The lonely tower. Image by xentiscarbon.Despite plans being put on hold for war, construction of the dam finished in 1950, sinking 163 homes beneath the waters of the newly created Lago di Resia. The lake itself is 22 m (72 ft) deep, meaning all houses and stores were fully submerged. The only building still visible to mark the former city is the church tower. Constructed in the fourteenth century, this tower has truly withstood the test of time. It is routinely restored and has become a poignant symbol of the local area.Image by Leopanther.The cache itself lies on the banks of the Lago di Resia—no swimming is required. Parking is available, as the demand of tourists evolved into a source of income for the displaced former residents of the sunken city. Image by Encio22.In the spring and summer, beautiful wildflowers bloom along the banks close to the cache, and in the winter you can venture right out onto the frozen lake at your own risk for an up close and personal encounter with the tower.Image by Fluffy_KoalaThe bells were removed from the tower a week before the town was flooded. But, if you visit in winter, make sure to listen for a ghostly pealing that locals say still rings out across the frozen valley.The tower in winter.

Injury-hit Sri Lanka gear up for World Cup final

first_imgTravelling all the way from Sri Lanka one would have expected the Islanders to take Thursday’s training session here at the Wankhede Stadium lightly ahead of the final on Saturday.But contrary to popular belief that the team would hit the acceleration pedal only on Friday, giving the senior players a chance to recuperate from the jet- lag, it was a strenuous training session for Sri Lanka with each of the players going all- out.The only exceptions were made for spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan – still recovering from an injury he sustained in the quarter- final against England – and Lasith Malinga.Although the Lankans have called up Chaminda Vaas and Suraj Randiv as replacements incase the injured duo of Muralitharan and Angelo Mathews fail to pass the fitness test, an ICC official present at the ground confirmed the world body hadn’t received any request as of Thursday afternoon.” Asking the technical committee for a replacement is a must. You just can’t draft someone into the squad. So I can’t confirm if they are actually coming. As of today afternoon, the ICC hasn’t received any requests for replacements. Maybe they are waiting for another day to check if the duo will be match- fit,” he told MAIL TODAY . At the nets, it was Tillakaratne Dilshan, Sri Lanka’s most prolific scorer in tournament, who took first strike with Thilan Samaraweera using the adjacent nets for some knocking. Dilshan was his usual self, hitting the net bowlers to every nook and corner of the ground.advertisementKumar Sangakkara, was a stark contrast as he preferred to play with a straight bat. Similarly, Mahela Jayawardene ensured that there was no weak link in his defense. Chamara Silva, though, used the long handle to good effect as he tonked the net bowlers through the ‘ V’. In fact, one of his shots almost smashed into the press box.With Murali in some sort of a doubt for the final, coach Trevor Bayliss took a close look at Ajantha Mendis, who hasn’t been very impressive in the tournament.Talking about Lanka’s chances in the final, coach Bayliss said that the two teams have played each other frequently in the recent past and anybody could triumph on the day.” This is the 36th time the two teams will meet since I took over as Lanka coach. So I would say we are quite used to each other’s strengths and weaknesses. We have beaten them in the past and don’t rule out doing so come Saturday,” he said.Bayliss did not rule out playing three spinners in the final. “The spinners have bowled really well and there is no reason why we shouldn’t play three spinners if the pitch demands. As far as Murali’s case is concerned, we will take a call on him only on Saturday morning. But there isn’t too much of a concern as he bowled without much trouble against New Zealand and can be expected to do the same,” he said.Bayliss wants his team to concentrate on its own strengths rather than India’s weaknesses.” I would want my boys to focus on their strengths and do what we do best. If we can play to our ability, we will surely be hard to beat,” he said.last_img read more

Motorola P30 with notched display, dual cameras and face unlock launched

first_imgMotorola on Wednesday announced the P30 which happens to be the company’s first smartphone to get a display cutout. At an event in China, the company announced the P30 right after the Moto Z3 and Moto E5 Plus. The latter two have already been announced outside of China, but it’s really the P30 that’s the highlight of the show. The new series from Motorola touts a design that looks quite inspired by the iPhone X. It has been priced starting at CNY 2,099 (approx Rs 21,300) while the top end model will cost CNY 2,499 (approx Rs 25,400). The P30 will go on sale in China starting September 15.The Motorola P30 stays true to renders from earlier this week. The device indeed looks inspired by the iPhone X thanks to a pretty wide notch on the front and a vertical dual rear camera setup on the back. The P30 has a ceramic back that comes in three flavours – black, white and a purple + blue gradient colour. The iconic Moto batwing logo on the back also houses a fingerprint sensor. The P30 will be offered with 6GB of RAM and an option of 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. The device sports a 6.2-inch display and is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset. As for the cameras, the Motorola P30 sports a 16MP + 5MP configuration on the back with f/1.8 aperture, AI portrait mode, scene recognition, AR mode and LED flash. On the front, the notch not only hides a 12-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash and some additional sensors as well that support Face Unlock. The P30 also gets a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top and curved edges all around.advertisementMotorola said that the P30 comes with nano coating that makes it water resistant. There’s also an AI-powered graphics acceleration for smoother gaming performance. The P30 is a “designed for China” phone so it doesn’t sound like Motorola has plans to launch this globally just yet.last_img read more

Ohio State mens hockey swept by No 6 NebraskaOmaha drops to 39

Senior forward Anthony Greco during a game against Canisius on Nov. 13. OSU won 4-1. Credit: Courtesy of OSUWeek after week, Ohio State men’s hockey coach Steve Rohlik preaches how important the special teams game is in hockey and how it determines outcomes more often than not.This weekend in Omaha, Nebraska, his team lost that battle.Coming off of a bye week, OSU (3-9) entered back into the realm of facing opponents ranked in the top 20 after taking three of four games from Mercyhurst and Canisius. The three-game winning streak came to a close as the Scarlet and Gray were swept by No. 6 Nebraska-Omaha (11-2-1) by scores of 3-1 and 6-4 on Friday and Saturday, respectively.After a scoreless first period in Game 1, sophomores Luc Snuggerud and David Pope found the back of the net past OSU junior netminder Christian Frey, putting the Mavericks up 2-0 after 40 minutes of play.OSU senior captain Craig Dalrymple lit the lamp for the second time this season on the power play to put the Buckeyes within one with 7:07 left in the game. Fellow senior captain Anthony Greco and freshman Dakota Joshua assisted on the play.The OSU comeback effort fell short, however, as Nebraska-Omaha junior forward Austin Ortega scored his 10th goal of the campaign into an empty net with one minute and two seconds remaining.The Buckeye power play received seven attempts to make Nebraska-Omaha pay for its mistakes throughout the evening, but the Dalrymple tally was the only one registered on the scoreboard. The Mavericks were unable to convert on any of their three opportunities on the night.Frey made 30 saves on 33 Maverick shots while Nebraska-Omaha freshman netminder Evan Weninger stopped 34 of the 35 pucks sent his way.In Game 2, it was the Mavericks’ turn to enjoy some time with a man advantage, and they cashed in accordingly.Ortega scored his second of the weekend just 30 seconds into the game. But that was followed up by OSU freshman Mike Gillespie’s first collegiate goal four minutes and 22 seconds later.A Tommy Parran game misconduct penalty due to checking from behind combined with a Sasha Larocque boarding penalty put the Buckeyes on a five-on-three disadvantage that they were unable to overcome, as a goal from junior forward Jake Guentzel started a run of four straight goals from the Mavericks, three of which came on the power play.Instead of fading away faced with a 5-1 deficit with 4:23 left in the second period, the Scarlet and Gray battled to the final buzzer.Larocque continued the trend of Buckeyes scoring their first collegiate goals, as the freshman made it a 5-2 game at the 17:28 mark of the middle frame assisted by sophomore Christian Lampasso and Joshua.Then the captains took over in the third period, as Greco and Nick Schilkey made it a 5-4 game with 4:45 remaining in the game.OSU outshot the Mavericks 24-8 in the final 20 minutes.  Again, the rally would end in the form of an empty net goal, this time via Guentzel’s second of the night with 44 seconds left, ending the scoring for the game.Nebraska-Omaha went 3-of-6 on the power play, ending the Buckeyes’ stretch of 18 consecutive killed penalties in the process. OSU went 0-of-2.Junior Matt Tomkins, who started between the pipes for the Buckeyes, was removed after the fifth Maverick goal and replaced by Frey. Tomkins made 18 saves on 23 shots, while Frey stopped all 10 shots he faced. Weninger received the nod again to start for the home team, and he made 42 saves on 46 pucks sent in his direction.The Buckeyes will look to rebound in Minneapolis next weekend, as they are set to take on Minnesota in their Big Ten opener on Friday at 8 p.m., followed by a rematch on Saturday at the same time. read more

Alex Meret injury not so bad to keep him from playing

first_imgAlex Meret’s agent is confident the Napoli goalkeeper may be ready to play against Lazio on the first day as “the injury was less severe than it could have been.”Meret broke a bone in his arm during the first training session of pre-season, and there was fear whether or not he would be able to continue playing.“It wasn’t the best start, certainly not what we’d have hoped for,” Federico Pastorello admitted via Football Italia.“Unfortunately these things happen, it’s a shame because it was a preventable thing. Sadly the exuberance of a young striker caused this injury, but these things happen.“Theoretically he could be available for the first league game, the injury was less serious than it could have been.Fonseca hints Smalling could debut tomorrow Manuel R. Medina – August 31, 2019 AS Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has hinted Chris Smalling could debut in tomorrow’s Derby Della Capitale between his team and Lazio.“He’s already started a whole series of workouts, even with the cast, he’s only lost 15 days and has been working consistently.“He’s champing at the bit to be there [for the first game of the season], then obviously it’s up to the Coach [Carlo Ancelotti] to decide.“If he thinks it would be more appropriate not to risk him then there will be no problems.“We chose Napoli because they were the club that wanted him most, it’s a long-term project so it’s not like the first game will change that scenario.”last_img read more
