His goal may only have been his second of the season, but it’s what he’s done at the other end that has defined his year and his role, never more so than in a physical road game where he led by example and refused to be bullied. Goncalves had his moments in attack, other than the goal, stepping forward again to smash a dipping shot from distance that rocked Montreal keeper Matt Pickens back on his feet midway through the second half, but it was in his familiar role, as players went sprawling around him, that Goncalves made his principle contribution. The defender brought discipline to the New England backline to nullify the threat of the prolific Marco di Vaio, who has made a late career art form of ever finer margins for playing off the last man’s shoulder. With little room for error Goncalves didn’t make any and Montreal continued their streak of being unable to buy a goal, let alone a win at home. Right now they look shot, and things don’t get easier with a midweek trip to the Galaxy to play the current game in hand they have on the three teams behind them, none further than a point back. New England meanwhile, kept themselves in an incrediby tight Eastern playoff race and may yet take a spot at the expense of the Impact, or at least force a return trip in a potential wild card game. They’ll have striking problems now with Sene gone for the season and Imbongo a doubt, but the main question mark against the run-in has always been whether the defense would regain the defensive solidity they’d built around Goncalves throughout the year, and which had slipped a little in recent weeks. Saturday’s shut out bodes well for the Revs’ final two games of the regular season against Columbus Crew. Kenny Cooper mirrors his side with too little too late Remember Kenny Cooper? Thierry Henry’s erstwhile strike partner exited back to Dallas in pre-season, and with Blas Perez already at the club and Eric Hassli joining as well, it looked like the Frisco team were going to be one of the more potent strike forces in the league. And then nothing much.
Boeing, ORACLE TEAM USA Partner to Recycle Composites in America’s Cup-Class Yacht
The hull and mast of the racing yacht will be processed and repurposed, a first-of-its-kind effort for what will likely be the largest carbon structure ever recycled. 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.
