Top Greek clubs threaten to withdraw from soccer league

first_imgThree of Greece’s top clubs have threatened to pull out of this season’s Super League in a dispute over refereeing selections, throwing the start of the new season into doubt.Panathinaikos, AEK Athens and PAOK Salonika all said they would refuse to take part because the Greek Football Federation (EPO) had compiled the list of referees for the season without consulting them or the league.Panathinaikos said in a statement that they would “refuse to participate in another championship scarred by dubious refereeing; under the current circumstances the championship cannot start.”AEK described the situation as “a criminal theatre of the absurd surrounding Greek football”.“It’s impossible for the championship to start and for us to participate in these conditions,” added PAOK, who also called onEPO president Giorgos Gkirtzikis to resign.The season is due to start on Aug. 20.In April, Greece came close to being suspended from international football after the government ordered the Greek Cup final to be canceled following crowd violence at a semi-final between PAOK and Olympiakos Piraeus.Global soccer body FIFA said the order infringed its statutes on the autonomy of national soccer federations, however an agreement was reached shortly before the April 15 deadline.Source: Reuters – kathimeriniTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

VACUUMSCHMELZE: magnetically shielded rooms provide unspoilt environment

first_imgMagnetically Shielded Rooms (MSR) are widely used in basic and applied research. They attenuate the influence of low-frequency interference caused, for example, by railway lines, elevators, vehicles, transformers or radio signals. VACUUMSCHMELZE (VAC) has already built up more than 150 cabins in almost 40 years and thus has unmatched experience in the conception, planning and execution of shielding cabins for the most diverse requirements.In addition to the three standard variants Basic, Advanced and Premium, high-end customer-specific designs can be realized.The right solution for all requirements: The Basic cabin is weight- and cost-optimized and suitable for installation in upper levels. The two-layer Advanced cabin also shields at higher frequencies and the Premium cabin with an additional MUMETALL layer is used for above-average magnetic environmental noises.The full vertical integration from melting of the alloy to the assembly of the finished cabin out of one hand has proven to be a key success factor to ensure consistently the best magnetic properties and most efficient project management.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Pixus: 5-slot OpenVPX rackmount chassis features conduction-cooled card guidesNext Kontron: KISS V3 CFL rackmount systems in 2U and 4U for demanding industrial applicationslast_img read more
