Unlike many road relays, the Ragnar Trail is a welcome exception that gets runners out of their vans and on to the trails.This was the second year of Ragnar Trail and the second year of Ragnar Trail Appalachians. Despite last year’s bad weather, the field doubled in size and became one of the largest of the seven events that will be staged this year. It is one of the more technical courses, especially with the mud. While Snowmass offers altitude, with the one of the loops climbing to just shy of 9,000 feet in elevation, and Zion has a long loop that, when covered by this year’s freak snow, took some runners hours to complete, the loops in McDowell Mountain, Ariz., and Vail Lake, Calif., are rather sedate in comparison. This year Ragnar is adding the Hill Country event outside of Austin and already held the Atlanta race on the trails that were used for the mountain bike course of the Atlanta Olympics.There are three loops of different distances, between three and seven miles and each of eight or four team members runs each of the loops in succession so that the team rotates throughout the night, eventually completing 24 loops for a full distance of more than 100 miles.The loops all start and finish at a central hub, one that quickly becomes rather festive, given more than 300 teams camped out and communing at the event, plus bands, a big fire pit, a dining and beer tent and sponsor and vendor booths. The trails at Big Bear Lake are stunning in their beauty and challenging in their technicality, one made more complicated by muddy conditions.Last year’s donut was this year’s hole when the sky opened up midway through the first day of racing. Although last year only saw a couple hours of sunlight, the remainder being light rain, this year was the opposite; two hours of downpour surrounded mostly by sun.Runners toughed it out and finished with mud-splattered grins and appreciating the value of aggressively-lugged trail shoes over their smooth-treaded road-running shoes. While the Ragnar Relays always have a handful of highly-competitive teams, the vast majority of participants are there to push their own comfort level by tackling overnight running, often for the first time, especially on trails that run through rows of tall pines, around ferns right out of a Hobbit set and over moss-covered rocks with endlessly-undulating hills. Although the weather makes the Ragnar Trail experience that much more authentic, perhaps next year’s pastry will be a whole one? Hole-less and sunny.–Adam W.

He was happy the Salomon tent he was holding down when the wind and rain hit Big Bear Lake didn’t fly into the air like a bouncy house and carry him off yonder. He’s not very big.

Zico insists Barcelona ace Messi doesn’t need World Cup to be legendby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveZico insists Barcelona ace Leo Messi doesn’t need to win the World Cup to be considered an all-time great.Despite his enormous success with Barcelona, the biggest prize in international football has eluded Messi so far, with Argentina only reaching the final in one of the four World Cups the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has appeared at.Zico told Omnisport: “Football is a collective sport and many times it doesn’t depend on you playing well. It depends if the team is playing well.”Sometimes you decide games, but you can’t decide a competition.”So, Messi’s merit is not undone because he hasn’t won a World Cup. “[Johan] Cruyff didn’t win any World Cup and was one of the great players of history and he will always be. And many others the same. “It is too much me, and not us. If you take a young man he doesn’t ask about your career, he asks: ‘Have you been the best in the world? Have you been the best of this, or that?’.”Everything is based on being the best. Football is a collective game, not and individual game.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
Washington DC: A team led by an Indian American student has been chosen by NASA to have its CubeSat — a mini research satellite to detect cosmic rays — flown into space on future missions of the US space agency. The researchers from the Yale Undergraduate Aerospace Association (YUAA), led by 21-year-old Keshav Raghavan, are among the 16 teams across the country whose CubeSats will be flown into space on missions planned to launch in 2020, 2021 and 2022. The team’s CubeSat BLAST (Bouchet Low-Earth Alpha/Beta Space Telescope) is named for physicist Edward A Bouchet — the first African American to receive a PhD in America. Students designed the satellite over the course of four years, and received the launch grant through NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative competition. According to the NASA, BLAST is a scientific investigation mission to map the distribution of galactic cosmic radiation across the night sky. The satellite will identify and count alpha particles and beta particles in the rays, and measure the radiation energy around Earth. BLAST will contribute to the ongoing search for the origins and nature of these rays, which will provide insight into the origins of the universe. Typical CubeSat projects cost about USD 30,000, while the one developed by the team will cost around USD 13,000 to USD 20,000, according to Andrew Krzywosz, co-president of YUAA. Once BLAST, a cosmic ray detector, goes into orbit, it will collect data about particles travelling to earth from distant supernovae, Raghavan said. “Building a CubeSat and launching it into space is an ambition YUAA has had for quite a while. The founding members in 2011 had it as a goal in the back of their minds, but at that time, it was totally beyond our capabilities as a club,” said Jonathan Li, co-president of YUAA. The team said that as the satellite is ‘smaller than a loaf of bread,’ it costs orders of magnitude less than large-scale satellites. The work, so far, has culminated in a viable prototype that the team anticipates will be ready for launch in slightly over a year. CubeSats are miniature satellites intended as a standard, inexpensive design that can easily fit alongside larger satellites aboard launch vehicles. The CubeSat model has given student groups, hobbyist organizations, and research teams operating with limited funding or experience unprecedented access to space. CubeSats are built from a modular structure of 10x10x10cm cubes, and feature a wide variety of commercially available off-the-shelf components designed to fit the structure from various manufacturers.
New Delhi: The ED has attached a Delhi farmhouse worth Rs 1.94 crore of former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala under provisions of PMLA in a disproportionate assets case, the agency said on Friday.The Enforcement Directorate had initiated its investigation based on a disproportionate assets case registered by the CBI, where the former CM had allegedly amassed over Rs 6 crore in assets, disproportionate to his known sources of income. The CBI investigation in the case revealed that between 1993 and 2006, in addition to Chautala himself, his sons Abhay Singh Chautala and Ajay Singh Chautala also continued to gather assets to the tune of Rs 119.6 crore and Rs 27.7 crore respectively, which was disproportionate to their known sources of income.

The agency has further accused Chautala of being directly involved in the acquisitions and that he had publicly presented these properties as untainted while declaring them in his election affidavit for Haryana Assembly elections in 2005 and 2009.

In April this year, the ED had attached properties worth Rs 3.68 crore belonging Chautala in Delhi, Panchkula, and Sirsa, whereas, in 2013, the agency had attached another of Chautala’s properties. The agency had filed the first chargesheet in the case against the former Haryana CM in July 2017 and this year filed a supplementary chargesheet. Chautala and his son Ajay are currently serving a 10-year jail term in a teacher-recruitment scam. The father-son duo was convicted by a trial court along with 53 others, including two IAS officers. While the Chautalas had appealed the trial court verdict twice, the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court of India had both upheld the trial court’s conviction in the case.
