The Gunners have added the likes of Gabriel Jesus and could yet make more moves before the window is out with Youri Tielemans thought to be on their radar. He could also be a back-up target for Manchester United should they miss out of Frenkie de Jong. Chelsea meanwhile have added Marc Cucurella, who was on Manchester City's radar. Other deals could still take place whilst in Barcelona they are having issues getting their players registered such is their financial state.

The harsh remarks from Beijing come after foreign ministers of G7 nations - including Japan - called on China on Wednesday to resolve tension around the Taiwan Strait in a peaceful manner, prompting China to cancel a planned meeting between Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Japanese counterpart on the sidelines of ASEAN events in Cambodia. © Thomson Reuters 2022.

Migrants who have been convicted of a criminal offense will be required to scan their faces up to five times a day using smartwatches installed with facial recognition technology under plans from the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice. The Guardian reports:Those who oppose the 24-hour surveillance of migrants say it breaches human rights and may have a detrimental impact on their health and wellbeing. Lucie Audibert, a lawyer and legal officer for Privacy International, said: "Facial recognition is known to be an imperfect and dangerous technology that tends to discriminate against people of color and marginalized communities. These 'innovations' in policing and surveillance are often driven by private companies, who profit from governments' race towards total surveillance and control of populations. "Through their opaque technologies and algorithms, they facilitate government discrimination and human rights abuses without any accountability.

In the space of a week Virgin Money has dropped down two places in our roundup. Al Rayan Bank now leads the charts with an expected profit rate, rather than an interest rate, on its Everyday Saver (Issue 3). Since Shawbrook Bank does not have any branches, this account must be opened online and managed via the telephone. Finally, Virgin Money’s collection of Club M Saver, M Plus Saver, and M Saver accounts finish in third position this week. All three of these accounts can be opened through different means, with the Club M Saver opened online or via the telephone, the M Plus Saver online, in branch or via telephone, and the M Saver via branch or telephone.

Australia-based Hysata, which is commercializing capillary-fed electrolysis technology developed at the University of Wollongong (earlier post) has closed its oversubscribed Series A funding round of $42.5 million AUD (US$30 million). The Hysata electrolyzer supplies water to the hydrogen- and oxygen-evolving electrodes via capillary-induced transport along a porous inner-electrode separator. Inspired by the historic evolution of water electrolysis cell architectures culminating in the direct production of one of the gases, the Capillary-Fed Electrolysis cell directly produces both gases. The porous, hydrophilic separator sustains the flow rate required for water electrolysis. The Hysata electrolyzer operates at 95% system efficiency (41.5 kWh/kg), delivering a giant leap in performance and cost over incumbent technologies, which typically operate at 75% or less.

“Despite the support within the union, and that the paper has apparently been seen by senior college staff and Gormley’s team, I doubt that it will affect the installation of ALERT,” an anonymous Imperial College student told The Art Newspaper. “I think that this is not the sort of thing that the college would pull out of or listen to students about.”There’s something inherently depressing, frankly, about young students reacting so vehemently to a sculptural interpretation of the human form. “Through the conversion of anatomy into an architectural construction I want to re-assess the relation between body and space,” Gormley explained in a statement. “While the artist’s intended form may [evoke our] ‘community of scientific research’ the phallic interpretation does not,” the motion from the Union continues. “The name ALERT could also be understood as referring to the statue’s phallus being erect.”The Daily Beast also reached out to Gormley and Imperial College for comment.

Other companies not involved in the strike will be running trains, but these are expected to be busy. The strikes will affect Arriva Rail London, Avanti West Coast, Crosscountry, Greater Anglia (including Stansted Express), Great Western, Hull Trains, LNER, London Overground, Southeastern and West Midlands Trains. What our passengers and our staff expect is for us to talk and work out a way through this.

As per assessments made by the clothing and homeware retailer, full-value sales surged more than that estimated 5% during the three months till 30 July.

It's the time of year that Sea Salp wash up on Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Long Island beaches. Get our free mobile appThe Sea Salp is also known as a Sea Grape, which I thought was just a bar in Fairfield, the 'Vacuum cleaner of the ocean', or ' Ocean jellybeans'. Salps are related to sea squirts, they're not jellyfish. They're harmless to humans, don't sting or bite, and feed on plankton. With the warm weather that we've been having here in Connecticut this Summer, it's a buffet out there for Sea Salp, they're grubbing down on harmful algae blooms and phytoplankton.
