And worth noting: Iceland home of Aaron Johansson, Bjork, and about 30 other people are in a good position to make the UEFA playoffs and possibly qualify for their first World Cup ever. 55 – A banner in the crowd: Off To Brazil. Mentally, the team is already there. 60 – To be clear: I dont totally blame the guys for playing this match at 80 percent. If theres one thing Americans understand, its not hustling. 65 – Matt Besler is wearing some jaunty headgear from the Wayne Rooney line. Finally, we have a competitor for the popular Cech model. 70 – The game has picked up a bit our guys may be deciding that we might as well win this game. 77 – Goal USA! There it is: Graham Zusi with the strike! Thats fair because Zusi has been the most active player since coming on, including being the guy who started the move that he eventually finished. Well done, guys: NOW you can relax. 81 – Goal USA! That seals the match, and also seals the group, since the other team that has qualified Costa Rica lost (see: motivation makes a big difference). With that goal, Altidore ties Germantowns Bruce Murray on the USA goal-scoring list with 21.
USA vs. Panama: Biggest Thing Each Team Needs to Do to Ensure Victory
clinched their spot in the 2014 World Cup following a victory over Mexico in Columbus back in September. It was a great result, both for beating El Tri and finally getting that spot secured after things were looking so bad not that long ago. However, the job is not completed yet. The U.S. still have one more qualifying match, against a Panama side that needs a win to hold on to any chance of qualifying for Brazil. The Americans also have to atone for what was a poor showing against Jamaica. Here’s what each team needs to do the most in order to come away with three points on Tuesday. United States: Play with Some Urgency and Determination Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports It’s pretty simply what the United States need to doactually play. For the first 60-65 minutes of that 2-0 win against Jamaica, they were asleep at the wheel. Yes, the United States have qualified, leaving very little importance on this final game. That doesn’t give the players license to go through the motions for 90 minutes. Juergen Klinsmann is purposefully choosing the players he thinks have the most to prove regarding their spot on the team.
Texworld USA partners with Manufacture NY
Boeing and ORACLE TEAM USA, working with research partners, will utilize a technique developed to recycle composite materials from Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, which is 50 percent composite by weight and 20 percent more fuel-efficient than similarly sized aircraft. Composite materials allow a lighter, simpler structure, which increases efficiency, and do not fatigue or corrode. In yachts, composite construction also provides the ability to develop a lighter vessel that is stronger and stiffer at the same time. “The introduction of composites in yacht construction was a major step in our sport. The materials and processes have continued to evolve, allowing us to build the high-tech, high-speed AC72 catamarans raced in this year’s America’s Cup,” said Chris Sitzenstock, ORACLE TEAM USA logistics. “Now, we have the ability to work with Boeing to take the next steps in composite recycling, and to help reduce our environmental footprint. We will also look to recycle carbon components remaining from the build of our yachts.” “Boeing leads the commercial aviation industry in increasing the use and recycling of composites to improve aircraft fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Billy Glover, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of market strategy. “We are very pleased now to work with ORACLE TEAM USA, which transformed the science of sailing to win the America’s Cup, to advance sustainability and the science of composite recycling.” Boeing and ORACLE TEAM USA will work with the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom and MIT-RCF, a South Carolina company specializing in repurposing carbon fiber components. In 2006 Boeing began collaborating with the University of Nottingham on carbon fiber recycling and they continue to work on recycling processes and technology to process the recycled fiber into new applications. USA-71’s hull will be cut into 4-foot sections and the mast will be chopped into manageable pieces before it is processed; about 75 percent of the recycled composites will come from the hull and the remaining 25 percent from the mast. Boeing and ORACLE TEAM USA expect to gather data about the mechanical properties, costs and time flows to recycle sailing-grade composite materials in comparison to aerospace-grade and automobile-grade composites. Although the companies have not determined the post-recycling use of the yacht’s carbon fiber, potential end uses include consumer and industrial products.
Boeing, ORACLE TEAM USA Partner to Recycle Composites in America’s Cup-Class Yacht
The partnership is expected to provide designers with an opportunity to source fabrics and speak with Manufacture NY about their products and services offered. Our goal is to be able to provide all the necessary resources for our attendees at Texworld USA. By partnering with Manufacture NY we will be able to provide our visitors with an interactive show floor and for our emerging designers, a premium resource on how to start their brand, commented John P. Gallagher, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt.

Bob Bland, Founder and CEO of Manufacture NY said: Texworld USA’s commitment to providing the next generation of fashion designers with low minimum and domestic textile sourcing options makes them an ideal partner for Manufacture New York. We look forward to working with them as the trade show floor becomes more interactive and responsive to 21st century material sourcing needs. Manufacture NY will be providing interactive elements to the show floor such as a sewing section with current members creating original designs as well as mannequins displaying finished garments. Winter edition Texworld USA is the largest sourcing event in North America for apparel fabric buyers, research and product development specialists, designers, merchandisers and overseas sourcing professionals. The 16th edition of Texworld USA will take place from 21-23 January 2014 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, collocated with the Apparel Sourcing show. Manufacture NY Manufacture New York is a fashion incubator/factory hybrid, dedicated to providing independent designers with the resources and skills to streamline their production process. It offers a dedicated area for experimentation with environmentally-friendly fabric washes, dyeing, finishes and special textile applications. Its flagship facility is scheduled to open in 2014 in Brooklyn and will include a cutting edge 40,000 sf fashion, production and tech incubator, and 120,000 sf of vertically integrated speciality manufacturing space.
