Louis Van Gaal Reportedly Upsets Manchester United Players with Training Regime

Louis van Gaal‘s tough pre-season training regime has reportedly rankled with some of the Manchester United players as they prepare for Saturday’s Premier League opener against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils returned to Manchester from their pre-season tour of the U.S. on Thursday following Wednesday’s underwhelming 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in Chicago.

According to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, the squad had to go straight from the plane to training after the eight-hour flight—and following their travails against PSG—a decision from Van Gaal which has not “gone down well” with some of the players.

Luckhurst notes that Van Gaal is historically tough when it comes to preparation, the Dutchman having ordered his squad on a walk of Santa Monica beach after a 12-hour flight to Los Angeles in last year’s pre-season—the aim being to “get the lactic acid out of [the players'] legs.”

The players’ grievances are likely to be short-lived if the Red Devils beat Spurs in Saturday’s opening match of the Premier League season.

However, United will have to put in a better performance than they did against PSG when their central defence continued to look vulnerable, per ByTheMinSport:

The defeat to the Ligue 1 champions was United’s only loss in the pre-season International Champions Cup, as they previously beat Barcelona, San Jose Earthquakes and Club America.

United and Van Gaal know that pre-season form often has little impact when the serious business of the Premier League rolls around.

After going undefeated last pre-season and winning the International Champions Cup, United lost to Swansea on the first day of the 2014-15 Premier League season and won just one of their opening five games.

Van Gaal will be desperate to avoid a similar scenario in the upcoming term, as United could potentially challenge for the title and will be hoping his tough training regime bears fruit against Spurs.

World’s first “aqueous solar flow battery” outperforms traditional lithium-iodine batteries

The Ohio State University researchers with the prototype device they call the first aqueous solar flow battery

The scientists that revealed the “world’s first solar battery” last year are now, following some modifications, reporting its first significant performance milestone. The device essentially fits a battery and solar cell into the one package, and has now been tested against traditional lithium-iodine batteries, over which the researchers are claiming energy savings of 20 percent.

Scientists say avoiding hangovers could come down to pre-“pear”-ation

Scientists have found that Korean pear juice can prevent hangover symptoms

There’s a seemingly endless variety of traditional hangover cures, but researchers at Australia’s CSIRO now claim to have uncovered one that actually works. Thankfully it’s not dried bull penis or even a raw egg, but something far more palatable – the juice of the humble Korean (or Asian) pear.

8/3 CBS2 Monday Morning Weather

By Mark McIntyre, CBS2 Meteorologist/Weather Producer

Good Monday morning, folks! It’s a warm one out there this morning with many spots already starting in the 70s…and temps will only go up! We’re looking at a hot & more humid high of 91 today! A few showers/rumbles are possible this afternoon but most of those should stay north/west of town. If you wanna head to the beach, just be aware that rip current risks are moderate to high for area shores, and the UV index will be up there too!

Morning Planner

Expect a pretty similar day tomorrow with mostly sunny skies, high temps in the upper 80s and low 90s, and elevated humidity – but it won’t be anything like last week’s sauna! Wednesday looks very nice with mid 80s and lower humidity.

Morning Rip Currents

The cooling trend should continue to end the week, down to the upper 70s/low 80s, along with a few chances for showers/storms as a few impulses swing through…Check back soon to see if we can salvage the weekend!

Watch FOALS’ “Mountain At My Gates” Music Video Shot With GoPro Spherical Directed by NABIL

Director and visionary NABIL has teamed up with GoPro for his latest project with UK-based indie rock band FOALS. NABIL decided to shoot the band’s official music video for their new track “Mountain At My Gates” entirely with GoPro’s spherical virtual reality technology. The technology allows for 360 degree filming with GoPro cameras, without losing anything anywhere. The outcome is rather impressive, opening up a completely new dimension to videography.
