Stanford, ASU defy experts

first_imgSTANFORD — Several weeks ago, few would have believed Stanford would be able to take a two-game lead over Arizona State in the Pac-10 standings with a victory over the Sun Devils today. Of course, even fewer would have believed rebuilding Stanford would be 3-0 on the road and 0-2 at home and that the Cardinal could be 4-1 if it hadn’t lost to Division I-AA UC Davis. So not much has gone according to plan for either school this fall but the fall isn’t over yet. Arizona State seemed headed for a landmark season after starting 3-1, but consecutive home losses to USC and Oregon sank the Sun Devils’ championship hopes. After a bye week, they’re hoping to get back on track for a good bowl game against the Cardinal (3-2, 2-1) at Stanford Stadium. Quarterback Sam Keller, a San Francisco Bay area native, will start despite a sprained thumb on his throwing hand, as well as a shoulder problem. Arizona State’s offense was a powerhouse until scoring just 17 points against Oregon two weeks ago, but Keller still leads the conference with 344.5 yards passing per game. Koetter hopes Arizona State’s confidence isn’t gone. “We won’t know that until we get tested again,’ Koetter said. “I feel like we’re still a good football team, but we have to prove it on Saturday. We weren’t that same football team against Oregon. We just have to get back out on the field. We can’t worry about what’s going to happen four or five games from now. We have to worry about just this game.’ Stanford has done the same, focusing its preparation on earning its first home win under Harris. With a strong finish, the Cardinal could make their first bowl game since coach Tyrone Willingham’s tenure but with six games still to play, that finish must start at home. “I love playing at Stanford Stadium,’ Alston said. “It’s the only place I’ve every wanted to play. (We want) to come here and have the opportunity to say thank you to the fans, try to show them that we do care and that we want to win for them. We have two big home games coming up, and we need to put our stake in the ground at Stanford Stadium and say, ‘This is our house.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Koetter also is among those impressed by Stanford’s poise and potency under new coach Walt Harris. “They are playing a very straightforward brand of football right now,’ Koetter said. “They’re not doing anything tricky. They’re just lining up and beating people.’ While Arizona State (3-3, 1-2) has struggled in close games this season, the Cardinal’s three wins all were narrow. Stanford won two conference road games in the last two weeks, holding off Washington State and Arizona by a combined seven points. “We prepare for the fourth quarter,’ Stanford linebacker Jon Alston said. “We’re five games into the season. Five games tell you a little about the season, but they don’t tell you everything. We’ll know a little bit more about ourselves by the end of the year. Hopefully, we’ll continue to put ourselves in position to win close games.’ But Koetter spent the Sun Devils’ bye week getting his own team prepared for the same thing. Spending only part of each practice worrying about Stanford, Koetter instead took his team back to basics with fundamental drills and workouts. last_img read more

Space Theatre at Science City to transform into 2D3D digital unit

first_imgKolkata: Visitors of Space Theatre at Science City will soon have a unique viewing experience in terms of content and technical quality with the switch from 2D analogue to 3D digital. The theatre which remained shut since March 1, 2017, due to renovation, will be unveiled with a new avatar by the middle of January 2019.”The time has come to switch to digital with the advancement in technology. We had been running the content in analogue format for 20 years. There will be six projectors in place of the old standalone projection system — the sound quality will be world class. The pioneering German manufacturer of optical systems Carl Zeiss is implementing the entire project,” said Subhabrata Chaudhri, director of Science City. The total project cost is around Rs 20 crore.

The 23m tilted dome is being designed and installed by Astro-Tec Manufacturing of the US. “Back in July 1997, when the dome was inaugurated for the first time, it was in seismic zone II compliant but now it has been made seismic zone IV compliant,” a senior official said. The air conditioning system and the sitting arrangement will also witness a change in the new dome though there will be no change in the capacity. There will be a total of 360 seats with more leg space and better reclining ability.

The latest digital content will be screened in ultrahigh definition and also in 3D, giving viewers the feel of ‘being there’,” a official said. Space Theatre at Science City is India’s first and the first film that was screened was Serengeti, which documents the journey of more than two million wild beasts, zebras and antelopes over 500 miles across the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. Science City, which operates under the National Council of Science Museums, had sent its proposal for an upgrade to the Union ministry of Culture in September 2015. The approval came in March 2016.last_img read more

Tracing the changing face of Indian contemporary art

first_imgFusing together some of the finest works from well established artists, the art exhibition at All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society aims to serve the audience a visual bonanza. Titled Genesis-18, the art show will be held from June 1-7. Genesis-18 is an exposition by 34 artists in a manner that traces a timeline of developments in style, themes and schools of what has emerged today as Indian contemporary art.The striking feature of the works of the participating artists is the manner in which they straddle diverse cultures whilst still voicing the present context of Indian social, cultural and political life. The canvases provide an introspective and sometimes uneasy glimpse into modern India, yet are collectively global in their presentation. This exhibition is a recognition of and respect for the influential antecedents of this genre of art. Clearly, the map has changed as these works demonstrate figurative and abstract, impatient yet unhurried, ancient spirituality fused with modern culture.It is amazing to discern the similarity in the direction of thoughts of all artists, coming from diverse milieus and diverse backgrounds.last_img read more
