UK construction growth eases on softer housebuilding, engineering -PMI

A worker walks past a picture of the London skyline outside the sales office of a property development in central LondonGrowth in Britain's construction industry slowed unexpectedly in July, hurt by a loss of momentum in housebuilding and civil engineering, according to a survey published on Tuesday that highlighted the economy's reliance on its services sector. The slowdown may have reflected an easing of the surge in confidence among construction firms that followed May's unexpectedly conclusive national election, survey compiler Markit said. Britain's economy picked up speed in the second quarter after a slowdown earlier in the year but was driven largely by its dominant services sector.


RAF Tornados will continue strikes against Islamic State until 2017

Defence secretary extends aircraft deployment, arguing that they have ‘proved their worth’ in campaign

The UK is to extend air strikes by RAF Tornados against Islamic State in Iraq by a year, the defence secretary has said, arguing that the aircraft had “proved their worth” in the air campaign.

Michael Fallon has said a squadron of Tornado GR4 fighter bombers will continue in service for a further year, until March 2017, despite originally having been due to be disbanded last March and replaced with a squadron of Typhoon air defence fighters.

Adama Traore Transfer News: Latest Rumours on Potential Liverpool Move

Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a deal to land Barcelona winger Adama Traore, but they could face late competition from Aston Villa to sign the player.

Continue for updates.


Villa to Beat Liverpool in Traore Chase

Tuesday, August 4

According to Marca (h/t Sport Witness) Aston Villa are currently the favourites to acquire the winger. The piece claims Tim Sherwood’s side will beat Stoke City, West Ham and Liverpool to bring Traore to Villa Park.

After losing Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph earlier this month, the club have looked to bring in plenty of young talent from the continent. In the Midlands, Traore would be afforded the game time he needs to develop, be part of a youthful squad and be playing for a manager who puts a strong emphasis on attacking football.


Traore Close to Liverpool Switch

Tuesday, August 4

According to Sport, the player flew to Liverpool on Monday to undergo a medical after training with his Barca B team-mates.

The piece also noted there is a “big doubt” over whether or not the youngster will be loaned to the Reds, signed on a permanent deal with a buy-back deal included or whether Liverpool have already triggered a release clause in the 19-year-old’s contract.

Here’s a look at why Adama is rated as one of the top stars in the current Barcelona youth setup:

Barcelona are in a tricky situation when it comes to young players like Traore. The club’s B team was relegated from the second tier of Spanish football last season and although their most exciting prospects would still get plenty of game time in Segunda B, the division is not of the standard required to appropriately test their talents.

The predicament could be to Liverpool’s benefit, it would seem. Sergi Dominguez thinks the Reds fanbase should be excited about this potential transfer:

The teenager certainly possesses all the qualities to excite supporters. Traore is a powerful runner, a silky dribbler and has a thunderous shot. As we can see here courtesy of OptaJose, Traore is a forward who loves to drive at opposition defences:

Indeed, such is his undeniable potential, for Barca to lose the player on a permanent deal would represent a substantial blow, especially for a club renowned for putting a major emphasis on youth development.

If Traore was to move to Merseyside, it’d be intriguing to see what kind of role he’d play at the club. After all, the Reds have plenty of attacking talent in place already and it’s tough to see how Brendan Rodgers could give the winger first-team minutes this season. But if Liverpool were to get him in on a permanent deal, in a couple of years, they’d have a serious talent on their hands.

8/4 CBS2 Tuesday Morning Weather

Good Morning All,

A muggy morning as you make your way to work with temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. It looks like another hot one today with a high of 90 degrees and the chance for some scattered storms later in the afternoon.

Hour By Hour - With Feels Like_PM 2

 

The middle of the week gives us our nicest day with less humidity and a high of 85 degrees on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday enter us into a slightly unsettled pattern with a little more widespread precipitation possible and temperatures in the low 80s. And Saturday things cool down with partly sunny skies at 81 degrees.

That’s all I have for now, be sure to check back soon for more weather updates.

World’s highest-performance single-molecule diode created

The creation of a single-molecule diode that is 50 times more efficient than anything produced before may help pave the way for much more practical molecular electronic components

As electronics miniaturization heads towards a theoretical physical limit in the tens of nanometers, new methods of manufacturing are required to produce transistors, diodes, and other fundamental electronic components. In this vein, a new range of molecule-sized devices have been created in the laboratory, though with varying results in terms of efficiency and practicality. Now a group of researchers from Berkeley Lab and Columbia University claims to have created the highest-performing, single-molecule diode ever made, which is said to be 50 times better in performance and efficiency than anything previously produced.
