‘Fake’ coaches, fixers undermine China’s football ambitions

Shanghai (AFP) – Rapacious middlemen and coaches with forged or few qualifications are trying their luck in China’s fast-growing grassroots football, imperilling its ambitions to become a major force in the sport, insiders warn. At the behest of football-fan President Xi Jinping, for whom it is a soft-power tool, the world’s second-biggest economy is throwing resources at the game domestically.

Scalar Capital, a hedge fund for crypto assets, plants its flag in an increasingly crowded landscape

Scalar Capital is a San Francisco-based hedge fund company specializing in crypto assets. In fact, it is one of roughly 300 “crypto” funds that have sprung up in the last year or so. That kind of market zaniness makes it difficult to carve out a niche, but S calar has a bit an edge on this front, thanks to its founders’ backgrounds.

Is 10 Percent A Magic Number For Climate Action?

In the days just before the election, I believed we were on the cusp of meaningful action to protect a livable climate. So many indicators of progress suggested it: the quick ratification of the Paris Climate Accord, the surge in new renewable energy, the ten Republican Members of Congress publicly supporting action to fight climate change and joining with ten Democrats to form the Climate Solutions Caucus, the outpouring of public support for the Dakota Access Pipeline protesters. New people ...

New Material Can Fold Itself Into Hundreds of Shapes

sciencehabit writes: Researchers have created the first heat-reactive polymer material that can not only remember its current shape but also memorize new ones.
