CCTV Shows Angry Man Throwing Chairs at Takeaway Staff, AlertSystems Reports

South Yorkshire Police have released CCTV footage of an angry, violent man hurling chairs and even a traffic cone at staff working at an Asian takeaway in the city centre. Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Police in Sheffield have released CCTV footage of the late night attack which occurred at Imran’s on The Wicker, Sheffield, close to the city centre. Owner of the takeaway, Imran Rafique, commented on the attack. “No one likes getting their shop smashed up – we’ve been established for over 20 years and this is one of the most extreme versions we’ve had,” Mr Rafique told the press. “You get a little bit of trouble every now and again but nothing like things being thrown over the counter.”

A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police has also commented on the attack, confirming that officers were called to a takeaway in the Wicker at around 1.45am on Saturday April 18th following reports of a customer causing damage, though there were no reports of assault at the time. “It was reported to police that a man had thrown a chair and condiments around the shop,” the spokesperson added. “Officers attended immediately but the offender had left the scene. An investigation is underway and officers are carrying out a number of enquiries. No arrests have been made at this time.”

AlertSystems, a company providing CCTV surveillance solutions to businesses in the UK, takes great interest in news such as this. A spokesperson for the company commented on the footage, saying “Attacks of this kind beggar belief. You often hear of vandalism and theft, but when an attacker goes outside to collect a traffic cone and use it as a projectile weapon against your staff, you’re incredibly thankful for CCTV. It’s a good thing that Mr Rafique had CCTV installed to record the incident so that police can hunt the man more efficiently.”

AlertSystems manage and maintain thousands of commercial security installations throughout the UK and are specialists in providing business security solutions. Offering professional service and a complete range of security services such as monitored alarm systems, Automatic Number Plate Recognition and Avigilon CCTV security systems, AlertSystems provides effective and reliable solutions to security problems.

Harmony rehab robot guides recovery

Harmony is a robotic exoskeleton designed for the upper body

Until now, rehabilitation exoskeletons have generally been one-armed, and haven’t been of much help in providing the sort of two-arm training that many patients need to recover coordination for carrying out daily tasks. Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin have now developed Harmony, a two-armed, robotic exoskeleton that uses mechanical feedback and sensor data to provide therapy to patients with spinal and neurological injuries.

Historical scientific treats up for auction at Bonhams

The Curta is considered the first pocket-sized mechanical calculator. This Type 1 mid-20th is expected to sell for at least US$610 at a Bonhams auction in London on May 19

In science, things can move quickly and once-vaunted instruments are often left by the wayside. Bonhams auction houses around the world regularly scoop ‘em up and dust ‘em off, inviting the technologically curious to take a little stroll through the history of scientific achievement and invest in what we’ve previously argued is one of the most undervalued collectibles marketplaces. Bonhams’ upcoming Scientific, Technological and Mechanical Musical Instrument auction in London will showcase a range of rare and unique collectibles, with amputating saws and hand-cranked mechanical calculators all part of the mix.

Why Jose Mourinho Is Football’s Equivalent of Boxing Superstar Floyd Mayweather

Though at times it may have seemed otherwise, it was never even close.

On scorecards across the world, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were level after six rounds in their record-breaking, record-setting mega bout on 2 May. The undefeated Mayweather—in customary fashion—downloaded the Filipino’s timing in the fight’s first half, and proceeded to dismantle his opponent in the latter stages, winning by unanimous decision.

Cast as a “boring” fighter, the product of Grand Rapids, Michigan is a complete contradiction.

Outside the boxing ring, Mayweather is flashy, brash and lets nobody within hearing distance forget it. Inside the ring, however, the 48-0 prizefighter is the definition of conservative.

The willingness to “entertain” spectators with crazy amounts of punches, taking reckless chances and seeing knockouts has long been respected by those in the boxing community, and indeed the casual fan. In a blood sport one hopes to see KOs, stoppages, cuts and high-octane action; Mayweather is not in the business of taking punishment to entertain—his modus operandi is simply to win.

Forty-six fighters, on 48 different occasions, have attempted to solve the now-38-year-old’s puzzle, and none have. Touted the greatest defensive fighter in his era, the best method for Mayweather to earn victories is using his sublime defensive wizardry and counter-punching prowess.

In 2 May’s bout, the onus was on Pacquiao to disrupt Mayweather’s comfortability; he was gun shy and the American champion coasted—much to the displeasure of many who watched the fight to see action or Mayweather lose.

It appears when the public loves an aspect of a sport, and a “malcontent” elects to take away what they love, vilification is warranted: Jose Mourinho can relate.

Neither to the obscene amounts of cash Mayweather has collected nor Mayweather’s more-than-despicable criminal history, but in terms of strangling what people love most about their respective sports—the two are an inseparable match.

Similar to boxing, football has its hallmarks. While gore and violence are not appreciated tenets in the “beautiful game,” a desire to play fluent, attack-minded football is why people watch.

The life’s blood of football is goals, and when an individual is comfortable not playing the game with an express purpose of scoring them, stigmas arise.

Though at times it may have seemed otherwise, it was never even close.

At one point above Manchester City on alphabetical order, Chelsea proceeded to win the 2014/15 Premier League title with three games to spare. Mourinho gave his team confidence to complete the task at hand, winning the Blues’ first league title since 2009/10.

Mourinho arrived in west London two seasons ago, taking over at the helm of Chelsea Football Club for a second time. Mandated to play an attacking brand of football, the Portuguese has attempted to instal the expansive brand owner Roman Abramovich requests.

In crucial matches, though, over Mourinho‘s now-23-month spell, he often reverts to his counter-attacking preference.

Given the money Chelsea have spent over the past 12 seasons, climbing the ladder of English football’s giants, one would expect the calibre of players in Stamford Bridge’s dressing room to not require an austere, defensive mindset—but they do.

Tags from outsiders (similar to that of Mayweather) label Mourinho‘s Chelsea as “boring,” lacking the guile to give the public opulent football.

Forgotten in recent memory was how Chelsea were the best attacking side in England to open the 2014/15 campaign. On pace to break their own 2009/10 goals-scored record (103) in the early stages, Mourinho allowed his team to play expansively, amassing 22 points and 23 goals before the season’s first nine EPL fixtures.

Mourinho is not in the business of risking points to entertain—his modus operandi is simply to win. Outside the pitch, the 52-year-old is one of football’s most outspoken, entertaining characters, but his teams do not always carry the same traits.

Though extremely watchable in the season’s first half, the Portuguese flipped an inevitable switch and Chelsea proceeded to grind out results in search of their fourth EPL crown: Eight league victories have come by one-goal margins since New Year’s Day.

To some (Mayweather and Mourinho included) winning, no matter the method, is all that matters.

One cannot expect winners to relinquish their best qualities in an effort to liven proceedings. Both Mayweather and Mourinho pride themselves on defensive organisation and their genius being enough to stifle any opponent.

Tasking Chelsea to play a more expansive style of football, risking points in the process, makes no sense to Mourinho—neither to Blues fans who pay to see a winning team. Contrary to popular belief, there is more tension in a 1-0 nail-biter than an 8-0 blowout. For a title race to transpire, it was contingent on the chasing pack to collect more points, they failed and Mourinho‘s outfit took advantage.

Boxing is more precarious in nature than football—as it can easily damage one’s health irreparably—so wanting Money to risk his own wellbeing for our collective entertainment is rather twisted; especially considering he has an uncanny ability to counter, block and/or evade punches.

Mayweather has stated his last bout will be in September (as noted by The Times‘ Ron Lewis), around that time Chelsea will have launched their 2015/16 title defence. Should the adage “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” be applied anywhere, expect both Mourinho and the pound-for-pound great to yet again neglect pressure for an attack-filled style.

Their calling cards are defensive greatness and an irreverent indifference to optics; with winning everything in sight, stopping their proven methods now would be completely illogical.

Ten-engine electric plane takes off

In seeking a compromise between helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, engineers in recent years have opted for tilt rotors, but NASA has dusted off and improved on a tilt wing aircraft design that takes off and lands like a helicopter and flies like an airplane. Called the Greased Lightning, or GL-10, the unmanned prototype made a successful vertical takeoff and transition to horizontal flight at Fort A.P. Hill, not far from NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.
