EUROSPORT.YAHOO - Athletes who don’t dip at the line are throwing medals away, Aug 17, 2013


 "Running at the highest level is incredible technical, but even the top athletes make basic misjudgements that effectively cost them medals. Some athletes tense up and fail to relax in the heat of battle, others make sluggish starts or - worse still - bolt from the blocks too early and are disqualified altogether. But one of the most agonising sights in the sport remains seeing an athlete dominate a race, put themselves in a perfect position to clinch glory, only to chuck it all away by failing to dip at the line. While there is some difficulty in timing the lunge towards the line perfectly, failing to do so altogether can be fairly regarded as negligent when it comes to performing at the highest level."

RED ORBIT - Dwarf Galaxy Caught Ramming Into A Large Spiral, Aug 17, 2013


"Observations with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed a massive cloud of multimillion-degree gas in a galaxy about 60 million light years from Earth. The hot gas cloud is likely caused by a collision between a dwarf galaxy and a much larger galaxy called NGC 1232. If confirmed, this discovery would mark the first time such a collision has been detected only in X-rays, and could have implications for understanding how galaxies grow through similar collisions. An image combining X-rays and optical light shows the scene of this collision. The impact between the dwarf galaxy and the spiral galaxy caused a shock wave – akin to a sonic boom on Earth – that generated hot gas with a temperature of about 6 million degrees. Chandra X-ray data, in purple, show the hot gas has a comet-like appearance, caused by the motion of the dwarf galaxy. Optical data from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope reveal the spiral galaxy in blue and white. X-ray point sources have been removed from this image to emphasize the diffuse emission."
