Like the men’s team, Ohio State’s women’s basketball team made a trip to the “Tobacco Road” portion of the state of North Carolina. They will bring a loss home. The No. 15-ranked Buckeyes were unable to win on the road in their visit to No. 22 North Carolina, falling short to the Tar Heels, 57-54. With the loss OSU falls to 4-2 on the season. Both of their losses have come against ranked opponents. OSU senior guard Tayler Hill scored a game-high 24 points on 9-21 shooting led OSU, but the Buckeyes’ likely could have used another scoring option as no other player reached double figures. Conversely, three different Tar Heels scored 11 points in the game. It was a close contest, but the Buckeyes had to claw their way back from a large deficit to make it a game. Midway through the second half, OSU trailed by 16 points at 44-28. With Hill leading the way the Buckeyes were able to cut the margin, and even took a two-point lead with 1:26 left to play. But the Tar Heels answered in a big way, forcing two turnovers down the stretch and scoring the game’s final five points to clinch the upset win. OSU returns home this weekend for a noon tipoff against Evansville.
Brazilian midfielder Arthur confirms Barcelona transfer ahead of the 2018-19 season.The Gremio star was expected to join the Catalan club in January of 2019 but the two clubs are believed to be working on a deal that could see the midfielder move to Spain this summer.Both clubs agreed on a £35million transfer in March of 2018 that would see the 21-year-old Brazilian join Barcelona in January 2019 but the Catalans want the player in their team this summer.With the departure of Andres Iniesta, the club want the former U-20 Brazilian midfielder to beef up the number of midfielders in the club. Arthur has already announced he’s leaving the Brazilian club this summer.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“I wanted to go out in a press conference for the love I have for the Gremio fans,” Arthur said, as reported by As.“I have a chance to fulfil a dream and I have to thank Barcelona for this opportunity. This isn’t goodbye as I hope I can come back to this club someday.”“Barce asked to arrive this summer and I really couldn’t turn down the chance to move to my dream club in earnest.”A deal is expected to be finalised this weekend, as confirmed by Gremio Sporting Director Andre Zanotta.

I got instant butterflies in my stomach and when I heard the train running through campus it reminded me of home. I also love how Louisville gives their students and student athletes every possible way to succeed. On top of that, I knew that I wanted to play Division 1 lacrosse and I knew that I wanted to play at the highest level possible, the ACC. There is so much to offer on this campus and I just knew it was for me.Print Friendly Version Story Links
Molecular orbitals represent regions in a molecule where an electron is likely to be found; they are derived using mathematical formulas and are represented by cloudlike drawings with multiple nodes that are supposed to represent where electrons can go and are meant to demonstrate how molecules can share those electrons in chemical interactions or bonding. Since it was first invented in 1981, using the STM has generally been the best method available for creating images of individual atoms and their electronic properties. The STM is basically a piece of equipment with a metal appendage that has a tip width of just a few atoms. The tip is moved back and forth in the air very close to a sample being studied. Voltage is then applied allowing electrons to move between the tip and the sample. Doing so allows for measuring of the density of electrons on the surface of the material being studied which is then used to build the models.Unfortunately however, traditional STM has not been able to map orbitals of single molecules. This is because the density of electrons on the surface of an object, don’t give up the mathematical orbital nor does it have a fine enough resolution. Also there is the problem of having to place the sample on a metal surface which can hide what is going on with the molecules that comprise the sample. In the new approach the team solved the easiest part of the problem by coating the surface that the sample lays on with salt. Next, to improve resolution, they stuck a single carbon monoxide molecule on the end of the tip; this because carbon monoxide molecules have the property of having its outermost lobes paired close, with one positive the other negative phased. Such an arrangement makes the tip more sensitive to the sample material placed below it. Using this method the researchers were able to map the structure of the nodes of the molecular orbitals which allowed them to create images based on the places that held electrons. © 2011 PhysOrg.com More information: High-Resolution Molecular Orbital Imaging Using a p-Wave STM Tip, Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 086101 (2011) DOI:10.1103/PhysRevLett.107.086101AbstractIndividual pentacene and naphthalocyanine molecules adsorbed on a bilayer of NaCl grown on Cu(111) were investigated by means of scanning tunneling microscopy using CO-functionalized tips. The images of the frontier molecular orbitals show an increased lateral resolution compared with those of the bare tip and reflect the modulus squared of the lateral gradient of the wave functions. The contrast is explained by tunneling through the p-wave orbitals of the CO molecule. Comparison with calculations using a Tersoff-Hamann approach, including s- and p-wave tip states, demonstrates the significant contribution of p-wave tip states.via Physics Viewpoint Experiments Prove Existence of Atomic Chain Anchors This document is subject to copyright.

They have published a paper on Physical Review Letters describing their procedure.
