Hubble Deep Field Surpassed: Ultra Deep Field

first_imgIf you remember the awe of seeing the first Hubble Deep Field image in 1995, check out the new HUDF: Hubble Ultra Deep Field (see also the New Scientist report).  The field of view, just one-tenth the size of the full moon, is a composite of 800 images taken for 11.3 days.  The 1995 image dazzled beholders with its 1600 galaxies.  This new image contains at least 10,000.Some images are so evocative, any attempt at description would spoil the moment.  Just stare at this one for awhile.  It would be odd not to be awed, nor to consider the power of God.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Wright is best pure shooter Gilas has

first_imgEl Nido residents told to vacate beach homes Reyes rattled off two names that fit his national program perfectly some years back.“Larry Fonacier and Jeff Chan are better, though they are (now) in the latter parts of their careers,” Reyes, who won this tournament in 2013 with the two gunslingers in an all-pro lineup, said. “They are the benchmarks for me.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsHe knows that he has a diamond in the rough in Wright, though, and Reyes also has one player in mind who is better at that shooting guard spot for the national team at this time.“For me, the ideal shooter (for the international game) is Marcio Lassiter,” Reyes said. “He is a great shooter, he is strong, he’s tough and he’s a great defender. That’s his advantage over all of them (Fonacier and Chan included). He is a much better defender than all of them.” FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’ “That’s typical of a scorer (being a weak defender),” Reyes said. “And he’s willing to learn that, to improve on that.”“In terms of overall value to the team, Marcio is better,” Reyes explained as he reiterated that defense helps teams win. “But if you talk of pure shooting alone, there’s no doubt that Matt has the edge over everyone else.”Reyes praised Wright for having the right attitude, something he made sure that the 6-foot-3 swingman possesses when he first laid eyes on him several years back in an Under-18 tournament.And with that, the Gilas coach knows that he will have the perfect player that he needs in due time, like as early as the start of the World Cup Qualifying in November back in this thriving country.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claim MOST READ LATEST STORIES Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Church, environmentalists ask DENR to revoke ECC of Quezon province coal plantcenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netTAIPEI – Is Matthew Wright the best shooter for Gilas Pilipinas?“It’s hard to say, because the measure of a great shooter is consistency,” coach Chot Reyes said on Sunday night after Wright put on a show and torched Chinese Taipei A with four triples in an 88-72 win in the Jones Cup Invitational that finally got the Filipinos on track.ADVERTISEMENT National Coffee Research Development and Extension Center brews the 2nd National Coffee Education Congress Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games Air Force shoots down BaliPure Trump strips away truth with hunky topless photo tweet Cool and collected even in the most intense moments here, Wright is showing offensive skills best suited for Gilas in this tournament and he is making the opposition pay in very short instances that he is left open.Lassiter suited up for Gilas in its formative years and has never made it back since, with issues concerning his health keeping him out of the squad that played in Changsha, China, in the last Asian Championship.But Reyes likes what he sees, like Wright’s attitude and focus.“He’s willing to learn, he has the tools, he’s athletic and very smart,” Reyes said when asked if Wright is getting to the level that Lassiter is at now.And the first thing Reyes wants is for Wright to be able to defend better.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more
