One of Nigeria’s largest hydro dams lays waste as turbines bought in 1982 from a German company were abandoned at the dam site and are now obsolete.The multi-million naira electricity turbines were purchased for the hydropower project at Ikere Gorge dam in Iseyin, Oyo State.The turbines were expected to produce electricity that would benefit several communities in Oke-Ogun area of the state – who now live with erratic power supply or are without access to power entirely.The dam’s project manager, Eng. Isaac Sunday Akingbade, explained that the dam, presently being managed by the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority, was built to produce no less than 6MW.Akingbade admitted that the obsolete turbines could not be used for the purpose they were procured for.Obsolete turbinesAttributing the situation to the political instability and a lack of funds, Akingbade explained that numerous new developments in hydro technology have rendered the old turbines useless.He added that aside from that, the company that manufactured the turbines in Germany is no longer in existence “so even if the equipment were installed, getting its parts [to repair the obsolete turbines] would pose a serious problem”.The project manager insisted that in order for the project to become a reality, new sets of turbines have to be imported for the dam.However, hydropower expert, Eng. Ahmed Afolayan, puts the blame on frequent changes in government as well as government officials’ attitude towards completing projects not started by them.Afolayan suggests that in order to get back on track, the Federal Government must involves private investors and purchases new turbines for the project since the old ones may no longer meet the present technological demands.

Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) protected communications satellite is now ready to join the constellation in space. The AEHF-4 satellite was encapsulated into its payload on September 26 in anticipation of its October 17 launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket.This is the fourth satellite that will complete a worldwide ring of AEHF satellites to deliver global extended data rate (XDR) coverage for the U.S. Air Force and for the partner nations – Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom – that also connect to the AEHF network. Lockheed’s Silicon Valley-based Protected Communications team built this satellite and is now making progress on producing the fifth and sixth satellites in the constellation.AEHF communications are jam-proof and offer low probability of detection or interception, and the four AEHF satellite constellation will be able to deliver that capability worldwide. The satellite enables military communications with real-time video, battlefield maps and targeting data, boosted by a five-fold increase in individual user data rates. The AEHF system provides vastly improved global, survivable, highly secure, protected communications for strategic command and tactical warfighters operating on ground, sea and air platforms. A single AEHF satellite provides greater total capacity than the entire legacy five-satellite Milstar constellation.Lockheed Martin manufactured the AEHF-4 satellite at its Sunnyvale, California facility. The satellite was delivered to Florida on July 27, 2018. The AEHF team is led by the MILSATCOM Systems Directorate at the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center. Lockheed Martin is the primary contractor, Northrop Grumman is the payload manufacturer. The US Air Force Space Command operates the AEHF system.

My signature is proof of that (and a representation of my favorite teams). Seems like a natural progression, in a way. At every level below the NBA/NBDL/etc, players are allowed to wear sleeved shirts underneath their uniform tops. Even now, more players in the NBA are wearing visible compression jerseys. Adidas and the NBA are just taking it to the next step.Does it look good? No. Looks very rec-league. Even in the NCAA, Evansville stopped with the sleeves years ago. I think the last time I saw sleeves on an on-court jersey, it was the Louisiana Tech women’s team.But with the current fashions getting baggier and longer than the past, I suppose it was inevitable.This jersey doesn’t look horrible.

Warsaw (AP) – One more team booked a ticket in the knockout stage of the Champions League on Wednesday and it wasn’t the star-studded defending champions, Real Madrid.Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, centre, is challenged by Legia Warsaw’s Jakub Rzezniczak, right, and Adam Hlousek during their Champions League Group F match at Stadion Wojska Polskiego, in Warsaw, Poland, Wednesday, Nov. 2. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski)Needing a win at Legia Warsaw to advance, Madrid squandered a 2-0 lead and allowed the Polish side to earn their first point of the campaign in what became a highly embarrassing 3-3 draw for the Spanish powerhouse.But while Zinedine Zidane’s team struggled, Borussia Dortmund had no such trouble and advanced to the knockout stages with two games to spare after a 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon. They join Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and five-time winners Bayern Munich, who all qualified on Tuesday.Zidane said he wasn’t surprised by a result that saw his team slip to second place in Group F, two points behind Dortmund. “It was a strange match, it didn’t go the way we wanted it to,” the Madrid manager said. “We lacked a bit of everything. Above all, when we scored two goals we dropped our intensity, and when you do that they can score. Now we are going to forget this game.”Polish supporters didn’t have a chance to celebrate at Wojska Polskiego Stadium, as the doors had been closed to the public by UEFA as a penalty for fans’ racist behavior and the fireworks thrown during a previous loss to Dortmund.Coming off a hat trick in the Spanish league, Cristiano Ronaldo finished empty-handed and remains two goals short of scoring his 100th goal in European competition.Leicester dropped their first points in their first foray into the Champions League and need to wait for another round of matches to seal a place in the last 16.Here’s a look at what happened in the Champions League on Wednesday in detail:___GROUP EIn a tightly contested group, Monaco took a big step toward qualifying with a 3-0 win over CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen claimed their first victory of the campaign at the expense of Tottenham.Monaco are now top of the group with eight points, two more than Leverkusen. Tottenham are another two points behind.Valere Germain took advantage of some hapless goalkeeping from Moscow’s Igor Akinfeev to open the scoring in the 13th minute. Radamel Falcao added Monaco’s second from Benjamin Mendy’s cross in the 29th and then used some neat footwork to make it 3-0 in the 41st.A record Tottenham attendance of 85,512 at their temporary Wembley Stadium home saw Kevin Kampl score in the 65th minute with a deflected shot for a 1-0 win which lifted Leverkusen into second place.___GROUP FMadrid looked set to romp to another big win after Gareth Bale netted an amazing opener from distance in the first minute before then setting up Benzema to make it 2-0.But Madrid’s slack defense — and over-confidence — let Legia Warsaw rally in stunning fashion to take the lead. Vadis Odjidja and Miroslav Radovic struck from long range before Thibault Moulin also scored from outside the area in the 83rd.Madrid were facing a humiliating defeat until Mateo Kovacic fired in from near the edge of the box to at least rescue a point.Dortmund left their top striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang watching from the stands as his backup, Adrian Ramos, scored the only goal in the 12th minute of a 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon.Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said Gabon striker Aubameyang was left out for “internal reasons.”The German side are atop the standings on 10 points, with Madrid trailing by two points and Sporting five further back.___GROUP GFollowing three straight wins, Leicester were held to a scoreless draw at FC Copenhagen and must now wait for a home game against a Brugge side that lost 1-0 at FC Porto for another chance to advance.Leicester dominate the group with 10 points, followed by Porto with seven, while Copenhagen are in third spot with five points.Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel dived to his right to claw away a downward header from Andreas Cornelius in injury time to earn the draw.Andre Silva headed home for Porto in the 37th minute at the Estadio do Dragao to end a winless drought at home in European competitions. The ball deflected off the shoulder of Brugge midfielder Tomas Pina before going into the top corner by the far post. It was Silva’s fourth goal in his last four matches with Porto.The result eliminated Brugge, who are yet to win a point after four matches.___GROUP HSevilla moved closer to the knockout stages after easing to a 4-0 win over a Dinamo Zagreb side that played the entire second half with 10 men. Dinamo defender Petar Stojanovic received a red card just before the break with the score at 1-0.Sevilla dominated throughout the match at their Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, with goals from Luciano Vietto, Sergio Escudero, Steven N’Zonzi and Wissam Ben Yedder putting the result beyond doubt.Sevilla, who won the Europa League for the previous three seasons, lead Group H with 10 points. Dinamo are left with zero points.Juventus have eight points after drawing 1-1 with Lyon, who have four.The Italian hosts missed the chance to ensure qualification with a victory.Gonzalo Higuain netted a penalty in the 13th minute but missed an open goal shortly before halftime. Juventus looked on course for the win but Corentin Tolisso leveled six minutes from time.
