Emergence of a neopelagic community through the establishment of coastal species on the high seas. Nature Communications, 2021; 12 (1) DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-27188-6

“The issues of plastic go beyond just ingestion and entanglement,” said Linsey Haram, lead author of the article and former postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). “It’s creating opportunities for coastal species’ biogeography to greatly expand beyond what we previously thought was possible.”

Gyres of ocean plastic form when surface currents drive plastic pollution from the coasts into regions where rotating currents trap the floating objects, which accumulate over time. The world has at least five plastic-infested gyres, or “garbage patches.” The North Pacific Subtropical Gyre, between California and Hawai’i, holds the most floating plastic, with an estimated 79,000 metric tons of plastic floating in a region over 610,000 square miles. While “garbage patch” is a misnomer — much of the pollution consists of microplastics, too small for the naked eye to see — floating debris like nets, buoys and bottles also get swept into the gyres, carrying organisms from their coastal homes with them.

A New Open Ocean

The authors call these communities neopelagic. “Neo” means new, and “pelagic” refers to the open ocean, as opposed to the coast. Scientists first began suspecting coastal species could use plastic to survive in the open ocean for long periods after the 2011 Japanese tsunami, when they discovered that nearly 300 species had rafted all the way across the Pacific on tsunami debris over the course of several years. But until now, confirmed sightings of coastal species on plastic directly in the open ocean were rare.

For this discovery, Haram teamed up with Ocean Voyages Institute, a nonprofit that collects plastic pollution on sailing expeditions, and a pair of oceanographers from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. The oceanographers, Jan Hafner and Nikolai Maximenko, created models that could predict where plastic was most likely to pile up in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. They shared that information with Ocean Voyages Institute.

One advantage of the institute, Haram — now a fellow at the American Association for the Advancement of Science — pointed out, is the low carbon footprint of its vessels. “It can take a lot of energy to get out to the middle of the ocean with a gas-powered boat,” she said. “So they use large-cargo sailing vessels to go around and remove plastics from the open ocean.”

During the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ocean Voyages Institute founder Mary Crowley and her team managed to collect a record-breaking 103 tons of plastics and other debris from the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. She shipped some of those samples to SERC’s Marine Invasions Lab. There, Haram analyzed the species that had colonized them. She found many coastal species — including anemones, hydroids and shrimp-like amphipods — not only surviving, but thriving, on marine plastic.

A Sea of Questions

For marine scientists, the very existence of this “new open ocean” community is a paradigm shift.

“The open ocean has not been habitable for coastal organisms until now,” said SERC senior scientist Greg Ruiz, who heads the Marine Invasions Lab where Haram worked. “Partly because of habitat limitation — there wasn’t plastic there in the past — and partly, we thought, because it was a food desert.”

The new discovery shows that both ideas do not always hold true. Plastic is providing the habitat. And somehow, coastal rafters are finding food. Ruiz said scientists are still speculating exactly how — whether they drift into existing hot spots of productivity in the gyre, or because the plastic itself acts like a reef attracting more food sources.

Now, scientists have another shift to wrestle with: How these coastal rafters could shake up the environment. The open ocean has plenty of its own native species, which also colonize floating debris. The arrival of new coastal neighbors could disrupt ocean ecosystems that have remained undisturbed for millennia.

“Coastal species are directly competing with these oceanic rafters,” Haram said. “They’re competing for space. They’re competing for resources. And those interactions are very poorly understood.”

And then there is the invasive-species threat. Scientists have already seen that begin to play out with Japanese tsunami debris, which carried organisms from Japan to North America. Vast colonies of coastal species floating in the open ocean for years at a time could act as a new reservoir, giving coastal rafters more opportunities to invade new coastlines.

“Those other coastlines are not just urban centers….That opportunity extends to more remote areas, protected areas, Hawaiian Islands, national parks, marine protected areas,” Ruiz said.

The authors still do not know how common these “neopelagic” communities are, whether they can sustain themselves or if they even exist outside the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. But the world’s dependence on plastic continues to climb. Scientists estimate cumulative global plastic waste could reach over 25 billion metric tons by 2050. With fiercer and more frequent storms on the horizon thanks to climate change, the authors expect even more of that plastic will get pushed out to sea. Colonies of coastal rafters on the high seas will likely only grow. This long-overlooked side effect of plastic pollution, the authors said, could soon transform life on land and in the sea.

For the ninth day of the championship, the afternoon begins with Piacenza’s clear victory over Taranto. At 18 in the field in Modena and Civitanova

Piacenza-Taranto 3-0 (25-18, 28-26, 25-15)

Opposing goals but the same need to win points for Piacenza and Taranto: red and white veterans of two consecutive away defeats, Apulians who want to reach increasingly quieter areas of the standings. In the end the hosts smile doubly: they conquer the three points and also find Francesco Recine after 20 days of stoppage due to a problem in his right hand. Inserted in the second set the attacker remains in the field until the end and proves to be fully recovered. Bernardi puts Stern in the sextet and the opposite takes two exchanges to make it clear that it is the right choice, starting with a winning block and attack. Gas Sales Bluenergy runs away immediately, keeps the pace high and the first set is all red and white; Randazzo tries to keep his team afloat, but the Stern-Rossard duo signs 15 points and there is nothing for the guests to do. Under 1-0 Di Pinto inserts Joao and the move turns out to be spot on: the Brazilian immediately provides the appropriate answers (he will close the fraction with 6 points) and loads his teammates on his shoulders, with Taranto overturning the inertia and being able to lead also 19-16. In the final Piacenza, which in the meantime has inserted Lagumdzija and Recine, cancels two set points and puts the arrow in closing 28-26 on the second occasion. At this point the hosts decide that it is no longer the case to take risks, they start off like a rocket and already in the middle of the fraction, with the red and white ahead 15-9, it is clear that the game is marked. The last part does not give emotions, with Gas Sales Bluenergy winning three points and finding many certainties.

Modena-Verona 3-0 (27-25, 25-22, 25-21)

Modena definitively comes out of the crisis at the beginning of the championship. The victory, even painful at times, against Verona gives the Gialloblù back that important team role, challenged by a disappointing start to the season (three knockouts in the first five matches). The growth of the game but in general of the whole team, in seven days has removed doubts and crises: first the victory with Trento, repeated Wednesday in Perugia and certified by the success against the former Stoytchev. At the start, formations announced at the kick-off. Two aces from Modena, first Leal and then Mazzone, create the 9-7 break that lasts very short, Jensen and Mozic from the serve put Rossini on the sidelines, 10-12 with Spirito’s block on Leal. One more wall, Asparuhov on Abdel Aziz, says +3 Verona. Leal resumes the equalizer at 16 with a block on Jensen. The rest is balanced until 21-23 signed by Mozic again. Mazzone blocks Jensen for 23-23, then Leal for 24-23. The same Cuban also transforms the replay of the third set ball which is worth 27-25. In the second set still Leal with the ace of 4-2, Mazzone with the block on 7-5 then climbs into the chair Earvin Ngapeth for 10-7 with two consecutive pipes. Mazzone on the wall again marks 15-11. A couple of inaccurate lifts by Bruno, one whistled as a double, allow Verona to impact at an altitude of 18. Modena does not break down, Abdel Aziz and Mazzone again on the wall give them 22-19. Ngapeth scores the ball change on 24-22 then the ace on 25-22. The host team gradually ‘detaches’ from the game, Giani’s team does not allow itself to be distracted and proves to be in control even in the third set. Nimir takes the chair again and there is no hope of recovery for Verona. The Dutchman’s first ace is worth 14-9, the spectacular combination between Ngapeth and Leal says 15-9. Stankovic comes out on 16-11 with a knee problem but Mazzone is there. Qafarena, entered for Jensen, scores a new -2 with the ace. Leal sends his opponents behind with the ace of 23-19, a prologue to Wounembaina’s error that closes the match at 25-21.

Cisterna-Civitanova 0-3 (23-25, 23-25, 15-25)

Civitanova continues his ride at the top of the standings, beating Cisterna 3-0 in a more close-knit match than the score suggests. With Ivan Zaytsev finally present at least on the bench, Blengini’s team (who debuts in the Champions League on Wednesday against Novosibirsk) must keep a stubborn Cisterna at bay that gets back in the score every time the Marche slow down. A very balanced first set. Latina starts well with Maar and the wall and Lube’s attack seems to be in trouble. Garcia takes care of bringing Civitanova back on 7-7. The score remains balanced, Simon a certainty together with Lucarelli (100% the first in attack, 83 the second) and Cisterna responds with Maar and Dirlic very effective. In the second, Lube starts with a thousand, leading to 7-1. Cisterna recovers with Maar on duty until -2. It is always Simon who keeps Lube’s play constant while Cisterna tries to stay in the wake of Dirlic, the most constant in attack. Also in the third set Civitanova starts strong with the usual Simon serving who digs the first break on 11-4. This time Cisterna has a harder time recovering: Lube is no longer distracted and closes the match of the ninth victory

Padua-Perugia 1-3 (22-25, 25-21, 22-25, 17-25)

Perugia returns to success but the challenge against Padua is anything but a walk for Grbic’s team who find the Juventus team at their heels for most of the match. Including the third set when Kioene recovered from 11-20 to 22-23. But the technical difference between the two teams, in the long run, obviously came out. The bianconeri tried to risk the impossible in serving (28 errors in total), but in the end it was Perugia’s serve that made the difference. Leon closes with 16 points and 60 percent in attack, Loeppky does better (16 points and 61 percent), but above all Solè (80 percent). Bottolo goes to alternating current (13 points and 46 percent). The chronicle. Padua starts off well in batting (7-5) but Perugia immediately finds itself with the same fundamental and the set returns to a draw (14-14). Then Sir puts the arrow with Anderson and Leon to shoulder the weight of the attack (17-20). The final draw is signed by the Cuban batting against Kioene who, however, tries to the end (22-25). Kioene finds herself at the start of the second set (7-4) thanks also to a couple of mistakes by Anderson. The bianconeri fly up to 15-13, then it is again great balance with the teams going hand in hand up to 19 all. Weber signs the 22-20, Loeppky the 24-21 against the block and then it is a lob from Weber to close the score (25-21). A balanced start also in the third set (with Ricci on the pitch instead of Russo) until Leon plays his symphony on the serve (4-6). Then Anderson thinks to further extend his team (11-20). Perugia plays on velvet, also because Kioene is no longer able to react. Perugia, however, settles down and allows Padua to get up to 17-21 and then sensationally up to 22-23 but the treasure of points is enough to close the account. It is a millimeter pounding by Loepkpy to get Grbic’s team out of the way. Giannelli repeatedly triggers Solè at the start of the fourth set (8-10) with the teams point to point up to 14-15. Then Rychlicki’s turn at bat places the break that closes the set and the game.

Stankovic comes out on 16-11 with a knee problem but Mazzone is there. Qafarena, entered for Jensen, scores a new -2 with the ace. Leal sends his opponents behind with the ace of 23-19, a prologue to Wounembaina’s error that closes the match at 25-21.

Cisterna-Civitanova 0-3 (23-25, 23-25, 15-25)

Civitanova continues his ride at the top of the standings, beating Cisterna 3-0 in a more close-knit match than the score suggests. With Ivan Zaytsev finally present at least on the bench, Blengini’s team (who debuts in the Champions League on Wednesday against Novosibirsk) must keep a stubborn Cisterna at bay that gets back in the score every time the Marche slow down. A very balanced first set. Latina starts well with Maar and the wall and Lube’s attack seems to be in trouble. Garcia takes care of bringing Civitanova back on 7-7. The score remains balanced, Simon a certainty together with Lucarelli (100% the first in attack, 83 the second) and Cisterna responds with Maar and Dirlic very effective. In the second, Lube starts with a thousand, leading to 7-1. Cisterna recovers with Maar on duty until -2. It is always Simon who keeps Lube’s play constant while Cisterna tries to stay in the wake of Dirlic, the most constant in attack. Also in the third set Civitanova starts strong with the usual Simon serving who digs the first break on 11-4. This time Cisterna has a harder time recovering: Lube is no longer distracted and closes the match of the ninth victory

Padua-Perugia 1-3 (22-25, 25-21, 22-25, 17-25)

Perugia returns to success but the challenge against Padua is anything but a walk for Grbic’s team who find the Juventus team at their heels for most of the match. Including the third set when Kioene recovered from 11-20 to 22-23. But the technical difference between the two teams, in the long run, obviously came out. The bianconeri tried to risk the impossible in serving (28 errors in total), but in the end it was Perugia’s serve that made the difference. Leon closes with 16 points and 60 percent in attack, Loeppky does better (16 points and 61 percent), but above all Solè (80 percent). Bottolo goes to alternating current (13 points and 46 percent). The chronicle. Padua starts off well in batting (7-5) but Perugia immediately finds itself with the same fundamental and the set returns to a draw (14-14). Then Sir puts the arrow with Anderson and Leon to shoulder the weight of the attack (17-20). The final draw is signed by the Cuban batting against Kioene who, however, tries to the end (22-25). Kioene finds herself at the start of the second set (7-4) thanks also to a couple of mistakes by Anderson. The bianconeri fly up to 15-13, then it is again great balance with the teams going hand in hand up to 19 all. Weber signs the 22-20, Loeppky the 24-21 against the block and then it is a lob from Weber to close the score (25-21). A balanced start also in the third set (with Ricci on the pitch instead of Russo) until Leon plays his symphony on the serve (4-6). Then Anderson thinks to further extend his team (11-20). Perugia plays on velvet, also because Kioene is no longer able to react. Perugia, however, settles down and allows Padua to get up to 17-21 and then sensationally up to 22-23 but the treasure of points is enough to close the account. It is a millimeter pounding by Loepkpy to get Grbic’s team out of the way. Giannelli repeatedly triggers Solè at the start of the fourth set (8-10) with the teams point to point up to 14-15. Then Rychlicki’s turn at bat places the break that closes the set and the game.

“The most innovative event in the world of cyclocross in recent times” is about to come to life in Val di Sole, Trentino. This was stated by Tomas Van den Spiegel, CEO of Flanders Classics, the company that coordinates the cyclocross World Cup which in ten days, 11 and 12 December 2022, will make its debut in the valley already made famous by the great mountain bike events, not last the splendid World Cup in August. The appointment that will mark the return of the world cyclocross circuit to Italy after five years was presented today in Trento at the Trentino Marketing headquarters, with the participation of the Tourism and Sport Councilor of the Autonomous Province of Trento, Roberto Failoni, of the CEO of Trentino Marketing, Maurizio Rossini, of the head of the Off-road sector of the Federciclismo, Massimo Ghirotto and of the Trentino champion Martino Fruet, with the live streaming of Tomas Van den Spiegel himself.

Details The great anticipation is for the first time of a cyclocross race designed to be held on snowy ground. Never the cyclocross World Cup had reached an altitude like the 1,200 meters of Vermiglio, and the area of ​​the Laghetti di San Leonardo is a blank page (it should be said, after the snowfall last weekend) available to the team. Flanders Classics, which will begin work on the course starting Saturday 4 December. The arrival of cyclocross in Val di Sole is the new challenge undertaken by Apt Val di Sole and Grandi Eventi Val di Sole, organizational engines already consolidated by the successes in mountain biking, assisted by the Pontedilegno-Tonale Consortium.

Towards the Olympics An innovative proposal, as underlined by Van den Spiegel, in which Flanders Classics has shown its strong belief right from the start. The goal is not just to offer a great new show, but to knock on the door of the IOC: cyclocross dreams of entering the Winter Olympics program, and Val di Sole can become a very important test bed to strengthen these ambitions.

Protagonists The cyclocross World Cup has started a few weeks ago but it is in December that it traditionally comes to life with the debut of the multi-discipline champions, engaged in the summer season on the road and sometimes also in mountain biking, such as the British Olympian Tom Pidcock Mtb 2021 in Tokyo, but capable of wonders also in cyclocross and on the road. At his side, on the starting line of the Elite Men test (Sunday 12 December, 14.55) there will be the phenomenal Wout Van Aert, three times cyclocross champion but author of feats also on the road and on any terrain, from long climbs to the classics , from the time trial to the sprints. In Val di Sole there will also be other protagonists of the cyclocross season, from World Cup leader Eli Iserbyt to Quinten Hermans. Gioele Bertolini and Jakob Dorigoni will instead try to give satisfaction to the blue colors. In the women’s field (departure at 13) the great protagonist will be the timeless champion Marianne Vos, together with Denise Betsema and Annemarie Worst. The Italian tips are Alice Arzuffi and Eva Lechner.

It format The cyclocross races take place on a circuit of variable length between 2.5 and 3.5 km, with winding markings and natural and artificial obstacles that enhance the driving skills of the athletes, and in some stretches they force them to cover stretches of racing with the bike on his shoulder, one of the most characteristic technical gestures of this discipline. Duration 60 minutes: spectacular and very intense competitions.

The show in Brooklyn’s victory over New York is the first positive sign after a start to the season in chiaroscuro for Barba

On the eve of the season, Nets fans envisioned a stellar backcourt capable of catapulting Kevin Durant and the rest of the talented roster to the NBA title. With Kyrie Irving and James Harden finally sane, slowing down Steve Nash’s ranks might have been as complicated perhaps as gagging the 2017 Warriors was. But the departure of the no-vax Irving changed some perspectives, putting a lot of pressure on the shoulders. of the former Rockets. Brooklyn remains a contender, of course, Harden still hasn’t found his right balance.

the doubts of the beard

More aggressive in attack or more team players? A question that Harden himself asked himself at the end of one of his worst performances of the season, last Saturday against the very hot Suns. “I’m trying to figure out when to look for one-on-one, when to attack and when to be a point guard – he had candidly confessed to the Nets phenomenon at the end of a performance spiced with seven turnover and a bad 4/15 from the field -. It’s not easy since things have changed since the preseason ”.

the doubts of the Nets

The team not only lacked Irving’s talent but a chemistry barely acquired at the end of last season when the Brooklyn wonder couple that finally made up the extraordinary “Big Three” of the Nets had sent encouraging signals for coach Nash and worrying about the rest. of the NBA. Harden, Irving case aside, to tell the truth he did not make it to the preparation camp in perfect shape, to put it mildly, and it is no coincidence that his start to the championship was certainly not stellar. In recent weeks, however, “The Beard” had begun to regain confidence and a good condition, despite not very brilliant shooting percentages (41.6%) and above all too many turnover, even if not forced.

the restart

“James doesn’t have to worry – Nash pointed out in the pre-match of the derby with the Knicks – he just has to play his basketball and be aggressive”. No sooner said than done and Harden hit the gas straight away against the Knicks, attacking the basket from the tap-off and scoring 15 points in an excellent first quarter. In the end, with a braking in the second half also due to Durant’s acceleration, the former Rockets closed the derby won by the Nets 112-110 with numbers in full Harden style (34 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists), making a contribution fundamental to the success, not without flaws, of Brooklyn. “I have to try not to think too much and play as I know – he declared at the end of the match – I have great confidence in my means and I have to play with the attitude of the best basketball player in the NBA. Being aggressive is essential for me ”. An important signal that arrives right in the derby, which is played with a great public setting, but which is not enough to solve Brooklyn’s chemistry problems. The James Harden seen against the Knicks, however, represents a decisive step forward.

Federica’s post career has already been defined since 4 August, when she was elected a member of the IOC as athletes’ representative. But there will also be much more

From our correspondent Stefano Arcobelli

A date that extends the Divina’s career out of the water, traces another slice of the future to remain at the center of the world sports scene. It happens in Tokyo, when Federica is already packing for her return to Italy, where she had even planned her birthday at home. Instead, Federica Pellegrini was elected on 4 August, one day before the age of 33, as a member of the IOC as an athlete representative until the Los Angeles 2028 Games. Between the next Paris Games and the American ones, there are also two other winter editions, the next in February in Beijing (Fede will therefore return to the city where he won the 2008 Olympic gold) and the Italian one in 2026 in Milan-Cortina, of which Fede is testimonial and on the board of directors. The election to the IOC also made her enter by right into the Coni government, the executive council.

Manager and beyond

At least another 7 years of top-level sporting commitments: relentless commitments for which the presence will be constant. Travel, representation, congresses, sessions that will often hold Fede abroad, not to mention within the same events in which the meetings are held. She has chosen to deal with hot topics in the committees such as the fight against doping, gender equality, and will bring her enormous experience as a long-lived athlete with all the problems of women too. Federica becomes global manager and not only in her sport, but in swimming she will remain: she has always said “I will be there for all those who ask me for help, especially the girls of the national team”. Ready to dispense advice. Potentially he could be the ideal manager of a national team. But now, taken as it is, it would be a reductive role.

Television and fashion

Federica has always said that one cannot be number one in all fields, but she was able to experience the catwalks like a model, she knew – beyond the countless participations as a TV guest – to appropriate the television medium as a judge of Italia’s Got Talent, in which he will be the judge for the fourth season. She was often tempted by hostess roles, but she had to decline because swimming and training didn’t allow her any respite. But now that she will be more “free”, who knows if she will want to get involved. Certainly in the first months of 2022 a documentary will be released on a TV platform. And it is evaluating various proposals both in the TV field and in testimonial contracts. You seem more attracted to roles of social commitment and ecological issues.

Regina social

With over 1 million and 500 thousand followers, Ambassador Fede can really choose which roles to take on in certain campaigns. It will often be in Rome, where due to relations with Giovanni Malagò, president of Coni who wanted it in the IOC, and will remain linked to the Aniene. Studying English well will be an urgent priority given the importance of the institutional role, even if in the IOC French is also used as a second, which Fede speaks very well since he was coached by Philippe Lucas.

Marriage

And then, indeed first and foremost, there is private life: 2022 will be for her the year of her marriage to Matteo Giunta, who has been her coach up to now: the relationship was made official after the 200 sl Olympics in Tokyo and the 39-year-old technician from Pesaro asked her for her hand in Venice a few weeks ago. Federica’s dream is to create a family on the model of her parents. Motherhood is naturally contemplated, now traveling towards the age of 34. The two will live in Verona, where Giunta will continue his work as a coach (now he follows a group of Azzurri) and will follow all the moves of his Federica with whom he will perhaps try to fulfill some extra commitments. Giunta and Fede have contacts initiated in Livigno, where they could organize clinics, while it does not seem to have followed the hypothesis of an Academy. In short, a relentless faith. What he will do when he grows up will not really be a problem for the Divine. After a lot of swimming, the longest chapter of her life as a famous champion is still to be written but well outlined. In his usual way: doing things right, with the same determination, with an increasingly convincing approach in the relationship with the public. Smiling, in a gradual maturation and this too winning. And with a nice insured bank account. A truly timeless superstar.

The two Aosta Valley champions are the leaders of the national team and went to Switzerland to train with the Russians and Austrians. Friday they debut in the World Cup Sprint with their heads already at the Olympics

Federico Pellegrino and Francesco De Fabiani went across the border (Switzerland) to become stronger. Opening up to the training set by the German coach Markus Cramer, who follows Ustiugov and Retivykh, the two neighbors from Valle d’Aosta, they questioned themselves after the World Championships in Oberstdorf without podiums. Yet for Chicco it was not a disappointing season, on the contrary: the Aosta Valley will remember this 2021 “as the most important year of my life”. For having won the second Sprint World Cup, and above all for having brought Greta Laurent, the Italian sprinter, to the altar. De Fabiani is Pellegrino’s squire: he was the youngest blue to win in the World Cup and at the World Championships in Seefeld 2019 he won the medal in the Sprint with his partner. The blue fortunes in the Olympic season depend on the two. Two axes to conquer the world. And the Games.

The king of the sprint

Explains Pellegrino, 31, policeman from Nus, outgoing Olympic silver in the classic Sprint, 5 world medals including gold in 2017 in Lahti and 16 World Cup victories with two specialty spheres: “I would like to try to be 100% right from the start, for me the path of the Olympics is easier than other top-level athletes like Norwegians and Russians, who will have to earn their places and will have to compete in the World Cup and be selected for the Olympics. If you want to see level competitions. look at those of the World Cup at the end of November and December, that is the absolute highest level of our sport, as far as those nations are concerned. Klaebo will surely be the man to beat. He has the good fortune / misfortune to be very complete and to aim to win any race, when you start to expand the number of goals then maybe it is more difficult to achieve them all. I dream of sprinting like Jacobs, this time my race at the Games will be in the a free technique that I prefer. In 2018 I was probably the most suitable and appropriate age to be able to win Olympic gold in the sprint and I stopped at silver, I came close. Now I’ll try again. Statistically in sprint races, the older you are, the more young people arrive very strong and overbearing. But I pretend nothing has happened and I think I’m still 25 years old. I changed my training system on purpose and I feel satisfied with the choice made which motivated me a lot “.

Defa’s plans

Adds De Fabiani, 28 years old from Gressoney, world medal, 2 victories (the first in 2015) and 6 World Cup podiums: “A special season is starting, we hope to have our say in China as the Azzurri did in the summer in Japan. The main goal is the Olympic one: in Beijing I’d like to be able to achieve something important in the 15 km classic technique and the 50 km free technique. The Olympic track is an unknown factor for everyone: we have profiles, maps but we have never been able to try the snow and the Chinese tracks, in short, we will go in the dark and it will be a novelty for everyone. We will try to be ready and to be able to play at our best. This year it was a different preparation than usual: Chicco and I are there joined a foreign team led by Cramer who follows one of the 4 Russian A teams. What has changed? Let’s work more hours but at a lower speed, we will see what this new system will bring. The answer and the fruits of this preparation will be able to or give it only the races “.

Blue: there is little Di Centa

The new national cross-country team entrusted to Alfred Stauder (who will make use of the contribution of Paolo Riva for men and Renato Pasini for women), will start with 7 Azzurri as always from Ruka in Finland, where a Sprint aa classic technique is scheduled on Friday. , on Saturday a 10 and 15 km always in classic technique, and on Sunday a 10 and 15 km free technique. Among the Azzurri at the debut of the World Cup season there will be the daughter of art Martina Di Centa. The others called up besides Pellegrino and De Fabiani are Paolo Ventura, Greta Laurent, Lucia Scardoni and Caterina Ganz. After Ruka, the circuit will move on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 December to Norway, to Lillehammer, then to Davos (11-12 with a sprint tl) and Dresden (18-19 December, still sprint tl). The Tour de Ski will start on Tuesday 28 December from Lenzerheide (Svi), will pass through Oberstdorf (Ger) and will end in Val di Fiemme on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 January, with the ascent of Cermis. Among the novelties of the Olympic season, the World Cup debut of the mixed 4 × 5 km relay (with two women and two men) and of the mixed sprint team on March 13 in Falun. Finals in Tyumen (Rus), closing on Sunday 20 March.

Penguins in the Antarctic battle against the cold and group together in order to keep each other warm. But if they stand too close together, they overheat. Consequently, there is an ideal temperature that the penguins reach when they keep a small distance from each other, but not too small. Each individual penguin acts in its own self-interest, moving in precisely the direction of the largest temperature increase or drop.

This is an example of a multi-body system of communicating active particles or of ‘interactive agents’. Researchers from HHU, the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching wanted to better understand how to describe these multi-body systems, because many other systems might use similar self-optimization principles.

The team working with first author Dr. Alexandra Zampetaki from the Institute of Theoretical Physics II at HHU has now found that it is this individual self-interest that creates an ideal zone for the entire group, where all of the penguins have the perfect temperature.

The physicists used a fundamentally new model for active particles that can self-direct their direction of motion. The particles communicate with each other by perceiving a jointly available resource that can be abstractly described by what is referred to as a ‘scalar field’ — for example a temperature field. The effect of the field is that the particles move in the direction that is most favourable for them to reach their ideal situation.

The researchers also found that the interaction with the field automatically leads to what are known as ‘three-body forces’ or ‘triplet forces’ between the particles. While all fundamental forces in nature — such as gravitation and electromagnetic Coulomb force — are a pair of forces between pairs of particles, triplet forces only occur when three particles are present simultaneously. These triplet forces are the key to understanding the collective dynamics of the communicating active particles.

“Almost all fundamental laws of physics can be described as a minimisation problem, for example such that the overall energy becomes minimal,” explained Prof. Dr. Hartmut Löwen, Head of the Institute at HHU. “By contrast, there was no minimisation in the system we examined. Instead, there was optimisation to reach an ideal zone.” This allows for an internal group dynamic that is ultimately beneficial for all, despite being driven by self-interest. The behaviour results in an ordered, aperiodic configuration in which agents with fewer neighbours stand closer together to keep each other warm — just like the penguins.

Prof. Dr. Benno Liebchen from TU Darmstadt added: “The interaction between the penguins via a collectively created field is reminiscent of how many micro-organisms communicate. For example, bacteria that consume oxygen could in principle use a similar optimisation principle to achieve the optimum oxygen concentration without having to coordinate their behaviour.”

Dr. Zampetaki concluded: “The optimisation principle we discovered builds a bridge between physics and biology and shows how quantitative modelling of simple communication rules leads to phenomena that would be unachievable based on ordinary pairing interaction.”

The Finn from Mercedes on a podcast: “I had become a ghost, I was obsessed with losing weight and I lost control. My ex-wife once wished me ‘good flight’ and I told her I didn’t care if the plane crashed. I was reborn thanks to a psychologist “

Racing in Formula 1? It is not always a virtue. There are also the hard moments, in which the results do not arrive despite the efforts in training, on the simulator and on the track. Negative periods in a driver’s life, which can sometimes be detrimental to their physical and mental well-being. As Valtteri Bottas told the podcast “Direct talk about me”, with words then taken from the Finnish site ‘Iltalehti’: it all started from the complex of losing weight in 2014, the hardest year of his life, up to the thought of wanting say goodbye to the races in the Circus. Before the help of a psychologist gave him back that energy lost among negative thoughts.

To lose control

“I had to take a plane and my ex-wife (swimmer Emilia Pikkarainen, ed) wished me the flight went well. I replied by saying that I didn’t care if the plane crashed: in that case I would simply be dead – Bottas’ shocking words on the podcast -. These are the kind of thoughts I started having, as if nothing mattered any more. ” 2014 was a year to forget for the Finn, who at the time took fourth place in the drivers’ classification with Williams: “I suffered from a serious state of fatigue, purely for my stubbornness – he added -. Then I had to reduce my weight to a minimum and I completely lost control ”.

The arrival of physical problems

Each extra kilo, in fact, means slowing down your car more on the track. Losing mass, for Bottas, had thus become an obsession: “I had to weigh myself every morning and evening and the weight was always less – he continues on the podcast -. I was obsessed and obsessed, sometimes I completed a running exercise twice: once with my coach, the other alone without being seen. I thought it would do me good, but in the long run it obviously didn’t ”. So much so that physical problems arrived: “I got tired very easily and couldn’t sleep – he says -, every night I woke up at 4 in the morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. This has affected my mental well-being: when you have removed every bit of your physical form, your mental side also empties ”.

The death of Bianchi and the psychologist

We couldn’t go on like this any longer, so much so that Emilia “told me that I should have sought help, because I was no longer myself. I had become a kind of ghost ”. The fatal accident of Jules Bianchi in the 2014 Suzuka GP, the Frenchman from Marussia and product of the FDA who crashed into a racing crane and died in Nice the following year, deeply affected Bottas: “It was a hard blow – comments the driver who will be in Alfa Romeo from 2022 -, it took me two years to recover: I suffered from arrhythmia and sometimes I thought it was the end. I started to feel empty, my whole life was F1 and I didn’t like it at all. I thought about quitting ”. It was the help of a psychologist who gave him the strength to go forward: “Something had to change, I took too many things too seriously – concludes Valtteri on the podcast -. I got help, I began to take everything more lightly and gradually I found my shape “.

TRIVIA DE FANS

Who do they call Worldwide handsome? The answer is very easy, this nickname is attributed to Kim Seok-jin, also known only as Jin in the fandom. This description emerged in an interview and has accompanied him ever since. In its translation into Spanish, it is understood as “the most handsome in the world.”

What does BTS mean? The letters BTS are an abbreviation of Korean words “Bangtan Sonyeondan”, which in Spanish means “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Don’t be surprised that ARMY doesn’t refer to the group by its acronym, but instead uses Bangtan.

The Red Bull Dutchman at the Jeddah GP conference: “Fast track but we don’t know what the balance of power will be. My hobbies? Whatever you do in the water “

Here we are, Max Verstappen is about to play the first match point for the 2021 F1 World Championship. The Saudi Arabian GP on the rookie Jeddah circuit, arrives with the Dutchman +8 over Lewis Hamilton. But the Red Bull driver shows the usual glacial concentration. “I am racing for the World Championship, not against Lewis or Mercedes”.

f1, world fight

Verstappen says he doesn’t think about the fact that it’s really a match point: “I’m very ‘neutral’ about the things around me, I don’t think about what can happen. The team is motivated, we know it’s a great opportunity for us, we want to be competitive but for now it’s all relative and theoretical. I still can’t say what the strength relationship with Mercedes will be like on this track. The circuit is a big question mark, we will try to give our best, but nobody really knows how the cars will behave on a new circuit, before trying it ”. And finally, a thought that speaks volumes about how Verstappen is focused: “Beat Mercedes? We have been trying for many years, every year of their domination, but if we win this year it will be good for us, not because we will have beaten the others. I think winning a World Cup is a great result for anyone, even for those who have already won. Against Mercedes like Germany-Holland in football? No, if I thought this I would be narrow-minded. F1 is not football, football is not F1, people from all over the world are involved here who work for different teams. Fighting with Lewis is important because it helps to improve, and I believe this fight is good for the sport. However it ends, I think it will have been a good season for both of us ”.

never against hamilton

They ask Max if a clash between him and Hamilton would weigh more on Lewis in terms of the standings, but Verstappen immediately erases the shadows: “I don’t think about a contact or an accident, I’m here to do my best on the track, going fast during the race” . Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes driver and alongside Verstappen during the conference, underlines the words of the rival Red Bull: “Each of us runs for the team, we are F1 professionals, none of us are looking for contact, it does not exist, our attitude is always of great professionalism “. In fact, Verstappen looks definitely further: “Playing the World Championship is more fun than stressful, in 2020 I got bored, it’s not easy when only one team is clearly stronger than the others. Whatever happens, 2021 will be a satisfying season for Red Bull. I’m certainly more competitive now than at the beginning of my career, in this with Lewis I think there is a difference because I think that after a certain age experience doesn’t make all this difference, at 35 you don’t have much less experience than at 40, to say”.

verstappen and hobbies

A young fan asks Max what his hobbies are outside of F1: “Well … My job is not that it leaves too much space for hobbies, I’ll be honest. I would say that I like playing the simulator and then I love water activities. Going boating or surfing, to say, doesn’t make much difference, I like everything in the water ”.
