Combine multiple text animators in After Effects to create overshoot for a great-looking organic animation!Text animators in After Effects are awesome. They allow you to have great, complex text animations while being able to make easy modifications to the text’s content. Here’s how to make one of my favorite quick animations: 3D flip down text with some overshoot.First, type out your text in a new layer. This animation works best with multiple lines of text.Next, you’ll want to twirl down the text settings, click on the “Animate” arrow, and select “Enable Per-character 3d”. This lets After Effect’s text animators see each letter as a separate 3D object for animation purposes.Now we get down to the actual animation. Click the animate arrow again, and select “Rotation” to add a text animator with a rotation property. Now that our anchor point is set correctly, we’ll change the X Rotation so that the text rotates away from the camera by about 90º. So what’s missing with the above? It feels a little flat, and some overshoot would do it some good. Overshoot is when the animation goes past it’s end point, then settles back to where it should end. To do this with text animators, we’ll a second text animator for rotation. Go back to to the “Animate” arrow and select “rotation”. This will add a brand new text animator with rotation properties.What we want to do is set the rotation to indicate how much overshoot we want to see. I chose –30º.We need to change the Range Selector for this text animator to “Lines” like the first one, but we’re going to set the Shape to “Round”, which will make it go from the start value to the value indicated below, then back.We’ll add two keyframe to change the second text animator’s offset from –100% to 100%, just like the first animator, and there you go! Now that our properties are set, we’ll do a little work on the timing of the animation. Twirl down the “Range Selector”, and “Advanced” inside that. We’ll set the animation to be based on “Lines” instead of “Characters”, change the Shape to “Ramp Up”, and set both Ease High and Ease Low to 100%.Now that all of our options are set, all we need to do is keyframe the Offset from –100% to 100% and you’ll see something like the below. We also want the text to fade in so you don’t see it before it flips down, so we’ll click on the “Add” arrow under the text animator and select “Opacity”, then set that to 0%. We’re going to be adjusting the X Rotation, but if you try to change the rotation now, you’ll notice that the anchor point is mid-letter. That’s not particularly helpful for our animation, where we want the text to flip down from above. You could adjust the anchor point using another text animator, but there’s actually an easier way…Above the text animator, you’ll see “More Options”. Twirl that down and you’ll see the two values that will let us change where the rotation is anchored to: Anchor Point Grouping and Grouping Alignment. We’ll change Anchor Point grouping to “line” so that the anchor point is the same for each line, and we’ll move the Grouping alignment so that the mark (shown below – you may want to click the image to enlarge) is just above the line of text. This is where the text will flip down from. The second animator give it a nice little overshoot, which adds a bit of organic motion to the movement. It’s fun to experiment with multiple text animators, instead of trying to cram everything into one. Text animators are incredibly powerful, and one of my favorite After Effects features. Hopefully you’ll find new ways to use them in your work!
It seems like a no-brainer: When humans hunt a species, its population declines. Just ask wolves and whales. But scientists have found an unusual case where hunting actually increases population numbers. When the Aboriginal people of Australia burn swaths of land to pursue sand monitor lizards, the reptiles don’t disappear—they thrive. The phenomenon may occur in the United States as well.The research concerns the Martu people, who live as hunter-gatherers in the deserts of Western Australia. Forty percent of the food they eat off the land comes from sand monitor lizards (Varanus gouldii), beige reptiles that can span 140 centimeters and weigh up to 6 kilograms. To hunt the creatures, which live in underground burrows, the Martu burn patches of underbrush so they can spot fresh holes and then use sticks to force the lizards out. Scientists know that such small, controlled fires can be good for the environment; regular burning prevents the buildup of dry vegetation that can help large fires spread. But the effects of these burns on animal species have been less clear.Anthropologist Rebecca Bliege Bird of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, was studying the hunting habits of the Martu when she became interested in how their behaviors affected the lizards. “These people have so much knowledge about the environment, and they kept saying that the lizards are more abundant in the areas that they’ve already been burning.” To see if they were right, she and her colleagues began collecting data on the density of lizards in different parts of the Great and Little Sandy deserts of Western Australia. They traveled to different spots at varying distances from Martu villages and roads—the furthest spots have been hunted the least—and counted lizards in 10-meter-by-10-meter plots. The Martu were onto something: There were almost twice as many lizards in landscapes that were most heavily hunted than in plots with little human exposure, the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The study doesn’t provide direct evidence for why the hunted areas house more lizards. Bird speculates that burning small areas of land at different times creates a patchwork of environments—each at different stages of recovery. This diversity in land likely increases diversity in insects and other animals and seems to help lizards thrive, she says. A lapse in such small burns in many parts of Australia during the 20th century, due to pressures on the Aboriginal people to leave the desert, could be to blame for the recent extinction of many Australian species, including dozens of mammals such as types of wallabies and mice, Bird notes. “We want to look next at whether this [change] did play a role in the native mammal decline,” she says. “It’s reasonable to think that when people left, biodiversity began to change, and then huge uncontrolled fires came through and the animals died.”The phenomenon of human behavior—and controlled fires—having a positive impact on an animal species is unlikely to be confined to the Australian desert, Bird says. She has interviewed members of native Californian tribes who believe that restrictions on their controlled burns have led to a loss in biodiversity and native California species, and an increase in diseases in organisms including native oaks, but her team hasn’t yet studied those ecosystems.“People had speculated about the ecological consequences of the fire regime in Australia,” says Neil Burrows, a conservation scientist at the Department of Parks and Wildlife of Western Australia who was not involved in the new research. “What they’ve done in this study is provide some solid evidence that patch burning benefits at least this one species.”The findings, he says, suggest that land management agencies should rethink the idea that less human interaction is always better for an ecosystem. Particularly in areas that have been shaped by millennia of sustainable native-human use, people can be key to maintaining certain species.
Mayors of Srinagar and Jammu civic bodies have been granted a status equivalent to that of Ministers of State (MoS), according to an official order.The order, issued by Additional Secretary Subash Chhibber on August 20, said the hospitality and protocol department shall make necessary insertion in the J&K State Warrant of Precedence with the approval of the competent authority.“Sanction is hereby accorded to the grant of status equivalent to Minister of State (MoS) to the Mayors of SMC (Srinagar Municipal Corporation) and JMC (Jammu Municipal Corporation) within their territorial jurisdiction,” the order said.The elections for the municipal corporations were held in four phases in October last year after a gap of 13 years.People’s Conference leader Junaid Mattu and BJP leader Chander Mohan Gupta are the Mayors of SMC and JMC, respectively.On August 5, the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre scrapped the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and split it into two Union Territories—Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

SeaNew Delhi, Mar 2 (PTI) India, the US and Japan will hold this years Malabar naval exercise in the northern part of the Philippine Sea.Chief of US Pacific Command Admiral Harry Harris said, “I think it is going to be held in the northern part of the Philippine Sea. I think including another high-end military power like Japan in Malabar increases the complexities and allows India and US to work with Japanese.”Speaking at a seminar here, he added that the exercise is an important element for assessing the maritime capabilities of all the three countries.Harris said everyone has a vested interest in ensuring the region remains secure, stable and prosperous.He pointed out that USD 5.3 trillion in trade passes through the Indian Ocean and South China Sea each year.”How Indo-Asia-Pacific nations employ naval forces to support these economic interests matters greatly,” he said.Reacting sharply to Indias move in December last year of including Japan in the Indo-US Malabar naval exercises on a permanent basis, China had said it is hopeful Tokyo will not “provoke confrontation” and “heighten tensions” in the region.China is in a territorial dispute with Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Vietnam over the South China Sea.

Juventus were made to work hard for a 2-1 win at Parma that maintains their perfect start to the Serie A season.The champions looked on course for a comfortable evening when Mario Mandzukic netted after two minutes, but Parma made life difficult for their esteemed guests until the former Croatia international intervened again to tee up Blaise Matuidi’s winner.Gervinho had drawn Parma level on his full debut and the hosts could have led at the interval, before their momentum waned following the restart.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! There was still no breakthrough for Juve new boy Cristiano Ronaldo, though, as his barren start to life in Italy continues beyond an international break during which he will miss action for Portugal.FT: THREE WINS FROM THREE!!! #ParmaJuve #FinoAllaFine #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/LK5KxeLCZG— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) September 1, 2018The visitors were quick off the mark, with Mandzukic meeting Juan Cuadrado’s pinpoint cross and then beating the recovering Simone Iacoponi to the loose ball to stab into the net.That sensational start suggested a Juve romp was on the cards, but Leo Stulac’s swirling free-kick soon crashed against the crossbar and a Parma equaliser followed before the break.Gervinho was on hand to turn the ball over the line after Roberto Inglese’s header, from an enticing Massimo Gobbi delivery, evaded Wojciech Szczesny, who at least prevented Luca Rigoni from completing a first-half turnaround.But a moment of real quality saw Juve reclaim their lead and ultimately win the match just before the hour-mark as Mandzukic flicked into Matuidi’s path and the France international provided a superb finish from a tight angle. What it means: A title race?Juventus were pushed all the way by Napoli last term, but the pre-season suggestion was that Ronaldo’s presence alone could stop a title race in its tracks. Although that may yet be the case and they have three wins from three, the Bianconeri have shown a soft underbelly in all three matches so far this term. There is cause for optimism for the chasing pack.Pat on the back: Gervinho threatens to steal the showOf the two ex-Premier League wide men on show on Saturday, Gervinho was undoubtedly the star of the show. Parma looked like cannon fodder after just two minutes, but their full debutant turned the tide with his slaloming runs, netted the equaliser and almost created a second goal before his withdrawal allowed Juventus to ease to victory.Pareggio Parma!

But in a competitive Serie A this term, Juventus could have done with their new talisman making an early breakthrough. A couple of wayward first-half headers represented the extent of Ronaldo’s threat in another underwhelming display.Key Opta stats:- Juventus have won all of their first three games of Serie A in four of the last six campaigns and three seasons in a row for the first time in their history.- Mario Mandzukic has found the net in two Serie A games in a row for the first time since November 2016.- Blaise Matuidi has scored three of his four Serie A goals in matches away from home- The last time Juventus found the net in the opening two minutes of a Serie A match was in November 2013 (Fernando Llorente versus Napoli).- Gervinho has scored his first goal in Serie A since November 2015 (versus Lazio), and his first versus Juventus in his five league games played against them.2 – The last time Juventus had found the net in the opening two minutes of a Serie A match was back in November 2013 (Llorente vs Napoli).

ATHENS – Walter Iglesias’ two second-half goals in the space of five minutes on assists from fellow Argentine Javier Umbides led Atromitos to a 2-1 away win over Panathinaikos in the Greek league.The hosts opened the scoring through Marcus Berg in the first half.The win kept Atromitos in third place, four points ahead of fourth-placed Panathinaikos and 12 behind league leader Olympiakos, which traveled to Aris on Dec. 15. Second-place PAOK, eight points behind the leader, travels to newcomer Kalloni.Also, Platanias beat Xanthi 3-0 and Giannena defeated Ergotelis 2-0.At Panathinaikos, Berg put the hosts ahead in the 39th minute. A long clearance from Panathinaikos’ area by David Mendes was headed at midfield by Nikos Karelis into the path of the Swedish forward, who lobbed the ball from outside the area over the charging Atromitos goalkeeper Luigi Cennamo.Atromitos equalized, also on the break, in the 60th, as Iglesias completed a 70-meter (75-yard) run by meeting Umbides’ cross from the right to tap the ball in. Iglesias’ run was helped by three Panathinaikos defenders who kept running toward their goal with no one turning to mark him.Five minutes later, Iglesias headed the winner off Umbides’ free kick.TweetPinShare0 Shares
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants were looking to put the game away with a late fourth-down conversion.It ended up sparking the Jets, who appeared well on their way to a disappointing, mistake-filled loss.Rontez Miles intercepted Eli Manning’s pass on fourth-and-2 in the fourth quarter, and Ryan Fitzpatrick rallied the Jets from a 10-point deficit to win 23-20 in overtime Dec. 6 and stay on track in the AFC playoff hunt.“I thought they would kick the field goal, honestly,” said Miles, echoing the sentiment of many Giants fans, who booed the decision — and the lack of execution — at MetLife Stadium.“If we scored there on fourth-and-2, then we push the score up to where maybe they can’t beat us with whatever,” Coughlin said. “So we’re up 17. I stand by it.”Randy Bullock cut the Jets’ deficit to seven on the next series, and Fitzpatrick hit Brandon Marshall for a 9-yard touchdown with 27 seconds remaining to tie it, capping a 71-yard drive.Bullock kicked a 31-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime. Josh Brown then missed his first attempt in 26 tries this season, giving the Jets the stunning win that sent the Giants (5-7) to their third straight loss.“For us to come from behind, it shows some grit,” coach Todd Bowles said. “During the season, that’s the mark of a good team, so we finally got to that point. I’m just happy it was today.”A 43-yard kickoff return by Dwayne Harris and a 20-yard pass to Odell Beckham Jr. on fourth down from the Giants 46 set up Brown’s 48-yard attempt that sailed wide left.“It was time for one of these games to go our way,” said Marshall, who had 12 catches for 131 yards.Fitzpatrick combined with Bilal Powell, who had eight catches for 91 yards, on a 25-yard TD pass for the Jets’ other touchdown.Bullock had three short field goals, the last capping a drive Fitzpatrick kept alive with an 11-yard pass to Eric Decker and passes of 13 and 10 to Marshall and 17 to Decker late.“There was always just a great belief in the huddle,” Fitzpatrick said, “a great belief on the sideline that we could come back and take this thing.”(DENNIS WASZAK Jr., AP Sports Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shares

Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power full specs and design revealed on Motorola’s websiteThe Brazilian Motorola website has accidentally leaked all the information for the entire Moto G7 lineup. The new models will sport modern notched displays and premium glass bodies.advertisement Next Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiJanuary 24, 2019UPDATED: January 25, 2019 10:08 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Moto G7 Power will feature a big 5000mAh battery.The G7 Plus will be sporting a more powerful Snapdragon 636 chipset and 16–megapixel primary rear camera.The standard G7 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset.The Moto G7 series is nearing its launch, although Motorola is yet to announce anything. Multiple rumours, leaked images and reports in the past suggest that the company will announce four models at an event in Brazil in February – Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power. And while Motorola is yet to officially confirm any of this, the company may have inadvertently revealed everything on the Motorola’s Brazilian website.CNET en Espanol spotted the Moto G7 phones casually listed on the Motorola Brazil website, complete with official renders and specifications. It essentially confirms everything we have come to know about the phones. Yes, the Moto G7 will have modern dewdrop notched displays and retain the glass-metal combo for the build.The G7 and G7 Plus will indeed sport displays that have narrow bezels all around with a slightly noticeable chin at the bottom. The notch will be present as standard on all the four variants of the Moto G7. The leak also reveals the presence of the 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB-C port for charging as well as data transfer.The standard Moto G7 will feature a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a full HD+ resolution. For the camera, there will be a set of 12-megapixel and a 5-megapixel dual camera setup for the rear. At the front, the dewdrop notch will hold the 8-megapixel front camera. The standard G7 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset along with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Additionally, a 3000mAh battery will keep the device juiced up.advertisementThe website leak also revealed other information with regards to the other variants of the Moto G7 family – Moto G7 Play, Moto G7 Power and Moto G7 Plus. The G7 Play and G7 Power, as leaked before, will sport slightly lower-resolution 720p LCD display. The G7 Power will feature a big 5000mAh battery. The G7 Plus, which is supposed to be the most premium variant of the lineup, will be sporting a more powerful Snapdragon 636 chipset. The G7 Plus will also gain a 16-megapixel camera for the rear alongside the 5-megapixel secondary sensor.Since Moto G7 leaks are intensifying, it seems that Motorola will soon be launching the update G7 series in several markets across the globe. In India, the G7 is expected to compete with the Redmi Note series from Xiaomi, Asus’ Zenfone Max Pro M2, Nokia 6.1 Plus and Realme 2 Pro.

It’s Time to Ditch Your Sleeping Bag for a Versatile, Lightweight Camping Quilt What if when you bought your dog (or cat) a bag of food and you were somehow able to also feed vulnerable, hungry animals at the same time? Thanks to Sara Henderson and Susan Hollar, it’s the world we get to live in. For every bag of pet food you purchase from their company, BoGo Bowl, they give a bag to shelters or even private homes in need.BoGo Bowl is top-tier, quality dog (and now cat!) food made without fillers or artificial ingredients. We’re talking chicken protein, vegetables, fruits, and vitamins, like omegas and glucosamine. There are a variety of options, ranging from puppy food to adult dog food, offering different meats, like chicken, lamb, and salmon. Want grain free? They’ve got it! The website DogFoodAdvisor.com has given them four stars, and will walk you through all of BoGo’s ingredients. According to DogFoodAdvisor.com, unlike some other major pet food suppliers, as of the date of publication, BoGo Bowl has had zero recalls and no quality issues.It’s slightly pricier than the dog food you just pick up at the store, but you’re caring for more animals than just your own when you buy BoGo. They do offer samples if you’d like your furry friends to try it before committing to the big bags. An added bonus, they offer wildly convenient, optional subscription service so you’ll never run out or have to lug the bag home from the store.Ironically, it was cruelty that gave rise to BoGo Bowl. Before they met, Henderson and Hollar adopted two special needs dogs who had been the victims of unfathomable abuse: Henderson adopted Chance, who had been tied to an active railroad track, but managed to survive, and Hollar has Duke, who was shot and left for dead.Henderson and Hollar connected in 2011, bonding over their love of animals and the rewards and difficulties of caring for dogs like Chance and Duke. While both had always wanted to find a way to make a difference, it wasn’t until they teamed up, inspired by their beloved dogs, that BoGo Bowl was born.Animal shelters do incredible work, often without sufficient resources. Most shelters have wish lists for all the items they need: towels, carriers, toys, most importantly, food. You can find the list of current shelters and organizations that benefit from BoGo Bowl here, broken down by state. Perhaps the best part of BoGo Bowl is that you can add a shelter or organization close to your heart (perhaps the shelter you rescued your best friend from?) and they will reach out to include them in the program.

New York: Serena Williams is wondering when she will start playing like a 23-time Grand Slam champion again in a major final, calling her poor showing in Saturday’s US Open final loss “inexcusable.” “I love Bianca. I think she’s a great girl. But I think this was the worst match I’ve played all tournament. It’s hard to know that you could do better,” Williams said. “Bianca obviously played well. I think her returns make me play better and put pressure on my serve. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”At the same time it’s inexcusable for me to play at that level.” Williams had 33 winners but just as many unforced errors. She hit nine aces but misfired eight double faults and hit only 44 percent of her first serves. She dropped 30 of 43 points on her second serve. “I believe I could have played better. I believe I could have done more. I believe I could have just been more Serena today,” Williams said. “I honestly don’t think Serena showed up. I have to kind of figure out how to get her to show up in Grand Slam finals.” Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsWilliams, who remains one Slam title shy of matching Margaret Court’s all-time record, has lost the past two Wimbledon and US Open finals since returning after having a baby two years ago. And she’s struggling to find answers for bad performances in the biggest matches. “All of it honestly, truly is super frustrating,” Williams said. “I’m so close, so close, so close, yet so far away. “I don’t know what to say. I guess I got to keep going if I want to be a professional tennis player. And I just got to just keep fighting through it.” Williams, who turns 38 later this month, downplayed the pursuit of Court’s record. “I’m not necessarily chasing a record. I’m just trying to win Grand Slams,” she said. “It’s definitely frustrating, but for the most part I just am still here. I’m still doing what I can do.” Williams fell behind 5-1 in the second set, sounding somewhat embarrassed and humbled at her situation before saving a match point in the seventh game to begin a fightback. “I was just thinking, honestly at that point, ‘Wow, this is terrible. You got to play better. I have to do better,'” Williams said. “I just couldn’t go down like that, so I just wanted to play a little bit better.” Most spectators in the crowd of 26,191 cheered on Williams, helping revive her to level the set at 5-5 before Andreescu broke again in the 12th game to win the title. “Well, I was thinking, ‘OK, Serena, you didn’t miss a serve, you lost serve maybe twice in the whole tournament, and you didn’t hit a first serve in today,'” she said. “So that was obviously on my mind: ‘How do I play at a level like this in a final?'” As her recent Slam finals losses go, she rated the effort superior to that against Simona Halep in dropping last July’s Wimbledon final — “I definitely did better than I did against Halep” — and discounted last year’s Wimbledon loss to Angelique Kerber, saying, “Kerber doesn’t count because I was exhausted. My baby was eight months, and that’s tough.” Williams, who has not won a Slam since the 2017 Australian Open while she was pregnant with daughter Olympia, said the time after her loss was spent pondering why she played so woefully. “I’m not really happy, but I have to take it one moment at a time,” she said.

Paringa Resources says production ramp-up at its Poplar Grove coal mine in the Illinois Coal Basin of Kentucky, US, has begun with the commencement of higher productivity, continuous underground mining operations.Raw coal is being brought to the surface and has been processed by Poplar Grove’s coal handling preparation plant (CHPP), the company reported.The commencement of mining using company-operated equipment follows approval from the US Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) for the recently amended development ventilation scheme, the company said.Mining to date at Poplar Grove has been undertaken by Paringa’s mining contractor as part of the bottom development using drill and blast techniques. These development activities have included creating a void for the installation of underground infrastructure at the bottom of the slope and a turnout area to enable the efficient movement of underground mining equipment. “This mining activity has produced raw coal which has been run through the CHPP as part of the testing and commissioning of the surface infrastructure,” Paringa said.The mining contractor’s last piece of work is to undertake 80 ft (24 m) of development mining via drill and blast over the next month, which will occur in tandem with Paringa’s operational teams.The next underground mining development activity is the connection of the return and intake air shafts to establish the permanent ventilation system. The connection is being made by Paringa-owned continuous miners in the coal seam, from the turnout to the base of the intake shaft and then to the base of the return shaft. This mining is producing raw coal for processing and subsequent sale to Paringa’s cornerstone customer LG&E. Paringa commenced this activity using the recently commissioned company-operated mining equipment, it said.Paringa said: “The bottom area ground conditions look good with slightly less water and a more competent roof than was expected, although initial mining with the continuous miner has encountered an area of very hard rock which will slow advancement marginally only in the very near term.“Once the permanent ventilation system has been established, the company will commence a typical underground room and pillar mining sequence. All other underground infrastructure, including the bottom sump, temporary slope belt tailpiece and tramp iron magnet, will be commissioned in the coming month to enable the commissioning of the ventilation system needed to begin the room and pillar mining sequence, subject to customary MSHA permanent ventilation system approvals.The company is targeting delivery of first processed coal to LG&E in the second half of March, and has progressed initial shipments activities, including a 2019 shipping schedule and invoicing and payment procedures.On surface, the CHPP is fully commissioned and has been run several times, processing raw material from the mine, with feed comprised of raw coal and waste rock material, Paringa said. “The proportion of raw coal in the plant feed will significantly increase in the coming weeks as mining activities continue using the company operated continuous miner in the coal seam as part of establishing the permanent ventilation system.”Initial raw coal stockpile development has commenced using material produced by company-operated mining equipment, conveyed from the underground mine portal to the preparation plant stockpile area.All other surface infrastructure including the workshops, bath house and river dock has been commissioned.
