Cases surged Michelle Carter, a senior of the class of 2019, is a journalism major from Santiago, Chile. She’s a film and TV junkie, and when she’s not reporting, you can find her bingeing the latest on Netflix or catching up on her favorite podcasts. Listen: Ball Don’t Lie: Parting Shots The Class of 1969 marks 50 years + posts printThere is an abundance of reasons why Hulu’s “The First” doesn’t work.A painfully slow pace, foreseeable complicated human relationships, astronomically unnecessary flashbacks… the list goes on.This show, about the first manned mission to Mars, should’ve never gone into orbit.“The First” starts off with a predictable catastrophe, prompting astronaut commander Tom Hagerty (Sean Penn) to save the day and lead a mission of his own to the red planet.(Trailer courtesy of IMDb.)Rather than letting us lift off into space with the astronauts from the get-go, viewers are forced to stay on Earth for seven-and-a-half episodes (out of eight) and watch how politics and bureaucracy get in the way of the mission. Only during the second half of the season finale do we get to see spaceship action.The only thing the show has going for it is that it’s aesthetically pleasing. Masterful cinematography and special effects give us a beautiful and realistic feel.The show spends too much time explaining how complicated a space mission can be – the risks involved, the money needed to fund the mission, and the people they must convince for approval.We’ve seen this in dozens of other Hollywood space productions. It would have been much more effective to get action from the start, like opening the show with our characters already in orbit or on Mars.Family relationships don’t make the show progress, either. It’s always one step forward and two steps back for our astronauts; just as you think one family is overcoming apprehensions about the voyage, another is crumbling back into hardships again.A show about outer space could have enormous potential, but “The First” just doesn’t have a good story.VerdictI watched the show it in its entirety because I kept expecting something to happen. Even the trailer is misleading since it includes footage from the show’s last episode, making me believe that the actual voyage to Mars would come much earlier. Everything that happens in seven episodes can be condensed into two, and the rest of the season could have been an exploration of survival on Mars. I wouldn’t bet on a second season.4/10
Twitter Linkedin GARRYOWEN native Derek Murphy is missing after his boat capsized on the Mississippi River on Saturday afternoon near New Orleans.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Derek, who is in his forties, was a member of the Garryowen AIL League winning team in 1991.According to the US Coast Guard Mr Murphy and the man he was travelling with were last seen on Saturday at about 2.30pm.A search and rescue operation using a helicopter and several boats carried out by members of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries lasted for three days.It is believed that the two men got into difficulty when their small, light, flat bottomed boat became stuck amid a fleet of barges.The Mississippi river is said to be dangerous for small boats and unfortunately neither man was wearing a lifejacket.Mr Murphy, who worked in the construction industry, emigrated to the US more than ten years ago. Rhebogue councillor Kieran O’Hanlon said that it was a terrible tragedy, “From a community point of view, my sympathies go to his family who have been very active with Richmond Rugby and Geraldines soccer club”.

We develop and analyse the first second-order phase-field model to combine melting and dissolution in multi-component flows. This provides a simple and accurate way to simulate challenging phase-change problems in existing codes. Phase-field models simplify computation by describing separate regions using a smoothed phase field. The phase field eliminates the need for complicated discretizations that track the moving phase boundary. However, standard phase-field models are only first-order accurate. They often incur an error proportional to the thickness of the diffuse interface. We eliminate this dominant error by developing a general framework for asymptotic analysis of diffuse-interface methods in arbitrary geometries. With this framework, we can consistently unify previous second-order phase-field models of melting and dissolution and the volume-penalty method for fluid–solid interaction. We finally validate second-order convergence of our model in two comprehensive benchmark problems using the open-source spectral code Dedalus.
ProRunnerTalk is a revolutionary new concept that is connecting local running groups to world class runners like Meb Keflezighi. This lecture series, founded by Liam Fayle and Hawi Keflezighi, uses web cam technology to bring everyday runners ‘face-to-face’ with acclaimed running athletes.ProRunnerTalk has already featured such runners as Mollie Huddle, Leo Manzano, Nick Symmonds, and two-time Boston Marathon champion Geoff Smith.The interactions take place at race expos, specialty running retailers and banquet halls, and are proving popular with local running clubs like the Lynchburg Road Runner Club (LRRC).The LRRC will be hosting Virginia’s first ever ProRunnerTalk today with an exclusive lecture by Meb Keflezighi. The event will serve as a special kick-off event for the 42nd Annual Genworth Virginia 10-Miler.
