Facebook Twitter Google+ When Diamond Henderson found herself mired in a 5-for-32 shooting slump that spanned three games in the middle of December, she decided she needed to make conscious changes. After practices, she’d stay late and not leave until she made 100 3s. During games, she’d look to attack and get to the free-throw line as opposed to living around the perimeter.For much of the early season, she showed only inconsistent flashes of being the prized transfer guard that chose to spend her final year of eligibility at Syracuse. “For the first time in a long time I would have a crew with me and not out there doing a lot of work by myself,” Henderson said, “so I just knew that scoring is what I’d do best, so I just had to come out and do what I do best.”After a rocky start to the season, Henderson’s much-hyped scoring ability came to fruition in Syracuse’s 74-72 loss to Baylor on Dec. 19. The senior erupted for 27 points and helped keep the Orange afloat in a game that it trailed in early on. Since then, she’s scored 16, 14 and 15 points, respectively, in each of SU’s last three games, her longest double-digit scoring stretch of the season. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt’s a streak she’ll have a chance to continue when No. 21 Syracuse (10-3) opens up Atlantic Coast Conference play on Sunday against No. 4 Notre Dame (13-1) at 1 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. “She’s a natural scorer, and she’s finding a way to put points on the board,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “Obviously, when you have a player that can do that, you want to take advantage of that skill set.” Hillsman said before the season that he hoped Henderson would counter the scoring drop-off that would follow the injury to star guard Brittney Sykes. Now, even with Sykes back, Henderson’s finding ways to make herself a threat offensively.But when Syracuse played North Carolina Central on Dec. 14, the shooting stroke that Henderson has since proved capable of was nowhere to be found. Despite playing only 16 minutes, she shot 1-of-12 from the field, with her only make coming with 50 seconds left to play in the 45-point Syracuse win.Hillsman employs a strict shoot-if-you’re-open rule that applies to all of the Syracuse shooters, Henderson said. And while it may be a crutch on a bad shooting day, she admitted that shooting is the best way to get out of a slump. With her recent surge, she’s become second on the team with a 3-point percentage of 35.2. Her 12.2 points per game are good for 27th in the ACC. Just weeks ago she was averaging only 9.7.“I knew from the jump that she was a great scorer. And while watching her, I try to learn from her,” Sykes said. “She’s a fifth-year, she’s been in college longer than me playing college basketball. So to learn from a scorer like her and pick up some things, it was good for me.” Regardless of the ups and downs she’s had on the court this season, just having a fifth-year senior’s presence has been beneficial for a team that has only one other player on the roster in her final year of eligibility.And now, all the expectations that followed Henderson to Syracuse are starting to come together for her.“I think I’m playing alright,” Henderson said. “I don’t think I’ve played my best basketball yet, but overall, I think I’ve been playing alright. You can only build from here.” Comments Published on January 3, 2015 at 6:35 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3

Pint-sized car engine promises high efficiency (PhysOrg.com) — The best hybrid cars of today can only deliver about 48 miles per gallon. By using this newly developed fuel injection system a test vehicle was measured at achieving 64 miles per gallon in highway driving. This is approximately a 50% increase in fuel efficiency in a gasoline engine. More information: Transonic Combustion: www.tscombustion.com/ Explore further The fuel injection system was developed by a startup company Transonic Combustion and their goal is to increase fuel efficiency of existing gasoline engines. The cost for this ultra-efficient system would be as much as high-end fuel injection systems currently on the market today.By heating and pressurizing gasoline before injecting it into the combustion chamber places it into a supercritical state that allows for very fast and clean combustion. This in turn decreases the amount of fuel needed to run the vehicle. The gasoline is also treated with a catalyst to further enhance combustion.What makes Transonic’s fuel injection system different from a direct injection is that it uses supercritical fluids and requires no spark to ignite the fuel. The supercritical fluid mixes quickly with air when it’s injected into the cylinder. The heat and pressure, in the cylinder, alone is enough to cause the fuel to combust without a spark.Ignition timing happens just when the piston reaches the optimal point, so that the maximum amount of energy is converted into mechanical movement of the engine.Proprietary software has also been developed by Transonic Combustion that allows the system to adjust the fuel injection precisely depending on engine load. Transonic Combustion is currently testing their new fuel injection system with three automakers. One key concern is the life of the engine when it’s subject to high pressures and temperatures. The company plans to manufacture the system themselves and not license the technology. Transonic Combustion plans to build its first factory in 2013, and place the technology into production cars by 2014. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Citation: Fuel-injection System That Delivers 64 Miles Per Gallon (2010, March 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-03-fuel-injection-miles-gallon.html The new fuel-injection system is placed into this sports car which weighs approximately the same as the Toyota Prius hybrid and has similar aerodynamics. The new fuel injection system gets better gas mileage than the Prius hybrid. Credit: Transonic Combustion This document is subject to copyright.

Kolkata: The denial of basic healthcare to transgenders has been brought to light through a documentary “Beyond Blue and Pink” that seeks to promote dialogue and discussion towardsA creating a trans-friendly way of accessing West Bengal’s healthcare system. The members of a city-based NGO, Civilian Welfare Foundation, Indrani Kar and Shuvojit Moulik, had undertaken a study titled “Basic Medical Facility for transgenders-a crucial step towards improving public health” in 2014.

One of the directors of the documentary, Debgopal Mondal, who himself is a part of the LGBT community, mentioned that there was a lot of talk on Article 377, rights of the community and choice of partners, but while making the film he realised that the real issues of the transgenders were not being highlighted.

Transgenders are subject to ‘trans-phobia’, discrimination, harassment and mockery even during getting basic treatment in West Bengal and other parts of India. “I have witnessed doctors being intolerant, insensitive and callous due to which the people like us (transgender) are becoming scared to visit the doctors. As we face constant discrimination, we are not at at mental ease and as we are deprived of basic physical treatment, the ailments are aggravating,” said Anurag Maitrayee, a city-based gender activist. “In our society, we are taught to hold guns but not hands. The documentary made me feel that the things shared are about me and I could relate to it,” Maitrayee added after watching the film on Friday. According to psychiatrist Madhurima Ghosh, the constant denial of even the basic rights results in anxiety, depression and other mental disorders. “Sensitisation of parents is important; it can only be done once a psychologist is able to able build rapport with them. We cannot directly do it as the stigma is deep-rooted,” said Ghosh, who is attached to AIIMS, Delhi. She said the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS) will conduct inclusive workshops to sensitise the medical practitioners, psychologists and common people. People need to stop terming the third genders as being ill. Even parents are misled by the healthcare system. “My parents took a lot of trouble to cure me at first, showed me to various doctors, took me to Vellore as well,” says Sourabh Das, a transgender at Amitie Trust. “Even doctors in Vellore did not know about transgenders and I was given electric shocks and even put in an asylum to be cured. Now my mother understands that this is not abnormal or a disease and she participates in workshops to understand it more,” added Das.
