Tidal Power - Energy From The Sea

A few years ago, "tidal power" also known as "tidal barrage". But these days there are another options as well.

How It Works?
These works like a hydro-electric power except the dam is much bigger. A huge dam (called "barrage") is built across the river estuary. When the tide goes in and out, the water flows through the tunnel in the dam. The flows of the tide can turns the turbines.

There are another options it. It is to used
offshore turbines likes an underwater wind.

This have an advantage of being
much cheaper to built and does
not have environment problem (used a small area to built) rather than tidal barrage.

The "Swanturbines" is design different from others and the most significant is that it is direct drive where the blades are connected directly to the electrical generator. Another different is the blades are fixed rather than actively controlled. Design out component that could be unreliable.

Glory Glory Manchester United


Manchester United are the most successful Premier League club having won the title 10 times. It all began in 1993 when manager Sir Alex Ferguson ended a 26-year wait to lift the Premier League crown.

The signing of Eric Cantona for £1.2million from Leeds United proved a masterstroke as the Frenchman was instrumental in the title victory, along with the likes of Gary Pallister, Denis Irwin, Ryan Giggs and Paul Ince.

United retained the trophy in the following campaign and romped to further titles in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2003. More silverware was added to the Red Devils' burgeoning trophy cabinet with FA Cup success in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2004, plus League Cup victories in 1992 and 2006.

Perhaps the most memorable time in the club's history was the treble-winning season of 1999 when they added the European Champions League trophy to the league title and FA Cup.

Club Heritage

Formed as Newton Heath L&YR F.C in 1878, the club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902. Six years later they clinched the Division One title, then the FA Cup in 1909, and another title triumph in 1911.

Matt Busby became manager in 1945 and steered United to championship victories in 1952, 1956 and 1957. They became the first English club to compete in the European Cup and reached the semi-final, before going out to Real Madrid. Tragedy struck in 1958 when the plane carrying the team home from a European match crashed, killing eight players.

Busby survived and led his rebuilt team to an FA Cup win in 1963, then league titles in 1965 and 1967. United won the European Cup in 1968 with victory over Benfica in the final - the first English club to do so. When Busby resigned in 1969, his successors failed to continue his glorious triumphs and United were relegated five years later.

They managed to regain their top-flight status at the first attempt and later won the FA Cup in 1977. More FA Cup success followed in 1983 and 1985. But it was United's 1990 FA Cup replay win over Crystal Palace that proved to be the springboard to becoming the force they are today.

It saved under-pressure manager Alex Ferguson from losing his job and he went on to win the European Cup Winners' Cup the season after and began their Premier League dominance with the 1993 title.

Munich Remembered

On 6 February 1958, a charter plane carrying 44 people crashed after refuelling at Munich Airport.

The accident claimed 23 lives, among them eight Manchester United players and three club officials.

We hope these pages are a fitting tribute to the young United side many believe would have gone on to dominate European football - the Busby Babes.

We will never forget.

FC Barcelona

History Of FC Barcelona
On November 29, 1899, Hans Gamper founded Futbol Club Barcelona, along with eleven other enthusiasts of 'foot-ball', a game that was still largely unknown in this part of the world.

Over more than one hundred years of history, FC Barcelona has grown spectacularly in every area and has progressed into something much greater than a mere sports club, turning Barça’s ‘more than a club’ slogan into a reality.
For a whole century, FC Barcelona has passed through moments of glory and pain, periods of brilliance and other less successful ones, epic victories and humbling defeats. But all these different moments have helped define the personality of a Club that, due to its peculiar nature, is considered unique in the world.

Barça has second biggest media impact

FC Barcelona remains the club with the second biggest media impact in the world, but it is the leader in the Americas according to a study. Messi is also second behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

Only Manchester United has greater media value than FC Barcelona, according to a study by the Economics, Sport and Intangibles (ESI-rg) group at the University of Navarra. The English side’s successes in the 2007/08 season when they won the Premier League and the Champions League have given them top spot with 89.6 media value points.

Battle between Cristiano and Messi
At the player level, Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) has 19.2 points and tops the classification though Leo Messi, with 18.3, has cut the gap by six points since last June.
