first_img Reuters LiverpoolMarch 22, 2019UPDATED: March 22, 2019 12:27 IST Wayne Rooney has played for Manchester United and Everton (Reuters Photo)Former Manchester United and Everton forward Wayne Rooney has said he cannot bear the thought that old foes Liverpool might win the Premier League title this season.Rooney, who began his career with Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton before moving to Manchester United, said he would rather defending champions Manchester City won the league instead.Liverpool are top of the table with two points more than second-placed City, who have a game in hand.”It’s a great reason to be out the country when those two are going head-to-head for the title,” Rooney, who now plays for Major League Soccer side DC United, told talkSPORT.”I hope Man City get over the line before Liverpool. I couldn’t bear to see them win it, it would be a nightmare for any Evertonian.”I remember in 2005 (Liverpool) won the Champions League and they’re still talking about it now so it would be another 10 or 15 years of that.”Liverpool have not won a league title in 29 years and ending that drought this season would allow them to move to 19 title wins in the English top flight, one behind United’s record.Also Read | Manchester United hit back at Barcelona over excessive ticket pricesFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Minemaxs Tempo 304 offers openpit mines further mineral value chain modelling

first_imgMinemax believes the enhanced BZ-based scheduling engine of its open-pit mine planning software, Tempo 3.0.4, will find favour with its Minemax Software Manager (MSM) users, delivering high-value schedules quicker than before.The new version of Tempo is now available to all maintained and subscribed users through MSM.The Tempo 3.0 release in September 2017 marked the first time BZ-based scheduling (the Bienstock-Zuckerberg algorithm) was available in a commercial mine scheduling solution, according to Minemax.Since that time, Minemax has extended the scope of Tempo’s BZ-based scheduling to include multiple alternative material destinations, trucking, both block and polygon scheduling and, most recently, products.“New product and product attribute charts and tabular reports are now available in Tempo 3.0.4. Products, along with their associated attributes, constraints and reports, enable you to more completely model your mineral value chain,” the company said.For example, in iron ore, products can be used for lump and fines, each with their own prices and blending constraints. In coal, products can be used to combine the outputs of both wash plant and by-pass processing options into multiple saleable blended products. With metals mining, products are used to satisfy monthly metal targets resulting from multiple processing options.While Minemax believes BZ-based mine scheduling can deliver high-value schedules quickly, the company is also providing a MILP (mixed integer linear programming) “solver option as well for polygon-cut scheduling in Tempo” for those that are yet to be convinced.last_img read more
