Rosetti: “We don’t want the VAR to re-arbitrate the games”

first_imgRosetti insisted that the International Football Association code Board (IFAB) provides for “clear evidence” of the error to justify VAR intervention. In the last days there were cases “limit” in the English Premier League, in which the technology annulled by a few millimeters a goal to the Portuguese Pedro Neto in Liverpool-Wolverhampton and to the English Jack Grealish in the Burnley-Aston Villa.Also on Saturday there was a similar case in the 3-0 win of Real Madrid in the Getafe field, with a French goal Raphael Varane who was validated after VAR control to determine a New position very fair. “The VAR is noticeable especially when it is not available. It is non-negotiable, it does justice, but it should not alter the spirit and fluidity of the game. The VAR controls everything that refers to the four planned cases: goals, penalties, red cards and identity errors. Silent control is something ordinary that should not be noticed. It lasts 16 seconds and does not interfere in the match. The important error is usually noticed in about 27 seconds, “Rosetti explained.“If the interruptions are very long, with ten or fifteen repetitions and four or five different cameras, it means that it is not a clear and obvious error, but a subjective interpretation of the referee that the VAR should not correct, “he concluded. The Italian Roberto Rosetti, president of the UEFA Referees Committee stressed that the VAR should not change the decision of the collegiate in cases of gameplay by a matter of few centimeters, in which “several minutes” are necessary to determine The effective position of a player. “We want the VAR to intervene only when the images show a clear error, not to re-arbitrate the matches. If not, the decision made in the field is better, “Rosetti said in an interview published this Saturday by the Italian newspaper”La Gazzetta dello Sport“.“Any part of the body, except the arms, closer to the goal than the ball and the last defender is out of play. Theoretically, one millimeter is enough. But if to decide if there is an offside of a few centimeters it takes several minutes to position the lines and there is a real difficulty in determining if it is out of play, always it is better not to change the decision made in the field, “he added.last_img read more

Airbus has $16 billion deal with Honeywell

first_imgAVIATION: Torrance-linked firm will build power units for new line of A350 wide-body planes. By Donna Borak THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Honeywell International Inc., which has operations in Torrance, said Wednesday it will provide the major mechanical systems for Airbus’ new long-range, wide-body A350 aircraft. Both Goodrich Corp. and a division of United Technologies Corp., Hamilton Sundstrand, say they will be competing for future work on the aircraft. Charlotte, N.C.-based Goodrich is providing Airbus with a structure to cover the engine and a system to decelerate the aircraft during landing for all three of the A350’s passenger planes. The deal is expected to generate $10 billion over the next 20 years, the company said. The A350XWB family is Airbus’ plan for a series of efficient, medium-capacity, long-range wide-body aircraft. With a range of up to 9,569 miles, it is available in three basic passenger versions: the A350-800 accommodating 270 passengers, the A350-900 seating 314, and the A350-1000 for 350 passengers. Total firm orders and commitments for the A350XWB stand at 254 aircraft, including 154 firm orders and 100 commitments. The Airbus aircraft is scheduled to hit the market about five years after rival Boeing Co.’s new midsize, long-haul 787 jetliner. To date, Boeing has received 706 orders for the 787. The plane is sold out through late 2013. Business writer Muhammed El-Hasan contributed to this article.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Honeywell said the contract is the largest systems and equipment package Airbus has awarded to date on this program. As part of the deal, Honeywell will design and build an auxiliary power unit and other equipment that supply pneumatic and electric power for the aircraft while on the ground or in-flight. The company also will build systems to manage all of the air used on the aircraft for environmental control, including cabin heating, cooling and pressurization. Airbus has yet to announce deals for its avionics and cockpit controls for the redesigned A350, which has traditionally been a strong area for Honeywell, JPMorgan securities analyst C. Stephen Tusa said in a note to clients. Honeywell spokesman Bill Reavis said it is too early to say whether the work will mean more jobs in the South Bay. Honeywell Aerospace employs 1,112 workers in Torrance, where it makes products that control the environment on planes and cool aircraft machinery. last_img read more
