Van Persie penalty earns a point on his Emirates return
Arsene Wenger's men failed to capitalise on Tottenham's draw at
Wigan yesterday in their hunt for a top-four finish despite making an
explosive start to a fiery contest Theo Walcott gave the hosts the lead
inside the second minute as Arsenal raced out of the blocks but they
were pegged back at the end of the half courtesy of a Van Persie
After a week's worth of speculation Van Persie started
on his return to the Emirates, while Lukas Podolski also made a rare
start as Arsenal's central striker with Olivier Giroud missing through
The Gunners got off to the perfect start in front of their red hot home support when Walcott
beat the offside trap and calmly found a way past David de Gea from a
tight angle inside the second minute, though replays showed he was half a
Santi Cazorla then stung the hands of the United keeper with a shot from range as Arsenal maintained their early momentum.
Persie's first real involvement in the game was a miscued shot which
sailed high over the bar just after the 10-minute mark, much to the
delight of the Gunners' supporters.
Those fans then collectively
held their breath moments later when the Dutchman broke down the left
flank before crossing for Phil Jones, who failed to find the target with
a header after surging into the box.
Arsene Wenger's men lost
some of that early impetus as the first half wore on but were sparked
back into life when Jonny Evans brought down Walcott just outside the
The free kick was wasted but moments later Arsenal had a
glorious chance to double their lead on the counterattack. Rosicky
elected to pass to Podolski, rather than the unmarked Walcott, but the
German could only fire his shot from a tight angle straight at De Gea.
then had Wojciech Szczesny to thank for keeping them ahead just before
the break. The Poland international made himself big to keep out Van
Persie's header from point-blank range after a swift United
But moments later Van Persie made no mistake, this time from the spot, after Sagna's rash challenge on the Dutchman gave United a penalty.
The full-back had given the ball to his former team-mate with a poor
pass, and then brought him down in the box as he treid to make amends.
Gunners made a bright start after the break and could have gone ahead
early on but Tomas Rosicky's prod with the outside of his boot whistled
just past the De Gea's far post.
Sir Alex's side soon edged back
into the contest and dictated the game for the next 15 minutes. Van
Persie overhit a low cross past the onrushing Antonio Valencia before
Wayne Rooney wasted a good chance with a header straight at Szczesny
from close range.
Arsenal rallied for a winner in an end-to-end
finale, with Sir Alex's side still a threat on the break, but neither
side could fashion the clear cut chance needed to win the game.
came close with a powerful right-footed shot which was palmed away by
De Gea with minutes left on the clock before Ryan Giggs wasted a great
opportunity when found totally unmarked on the break by Rooney.
Wenger may see the draw as a missed opportunity to strengthen their
grip on a top-four finish, while United can now no longer beat Chelsea's
record Premier League points haul of 95.
When Osaka's baseball stadium closed its doors, it opened as a great
opportunity to reconstruction in the new business district, next to the
station Namba, the first stop from the airport Kansai. Given the location, owner Nankai Electric Railway asked John Gerd create gate to Osaka, which will emphasize its individuality.
Gerd decided to create Namba Parks - a large park, which will be close
to natural interference and harsh conditions of the city of Osaka.
Along with the 30-story tower, the project includes commercial centers
(120 tenants), which topped the park on the roof, which crosses several
blocks, gradually rising to eight levels.
In addition to the highly visible green areas in the urban landscape,
where nature is rare, sloping park connects to the street, inviting
passers-by to enjoy groves, clusters of rocks, cliffs, meadows, streams,
waterfalls, ponds and outdoor terraces. The area under the park is divided between shops, entertainment centers and points of supply.

Recently, at the invitation of the Dutch company Philips I visited their largest factory for electric shavers in Drachten.
I love to travel on such production, however, before the trip, I
thought that the topic is not very interesting, but in reality was the
For example, I learned that in the production of electric shavers
Philips used Soviet aerospace technology, bought by the Dutch in Ufa in
First Jacob Schick invented the electric razor (yes, the company Schick
his name), it happened in 1927, when he was looking for a method
without shaving cream and water (due to injury). In the mid-1930s, has sold 1.5 million Schick shavers - motor and shafts that drive knives to meet each other. This and other interesting information you can find in the student blog .
Completely new, rotary shaver in 1939 developed the engineer Alexander
Horowitz, hired by Philips, it was known as Philishave Shaver. Here it is, in the hands of the advertising character of the time standing in a factory in Drahtene.
In this small Dutch town is factory that produce all razors Philips, as
well as research and development center, which employs about 2,000
4. Showroom with different (not all) goods made by Philips and Bren museum all manufactured razors!
5. For 75 years it has been sold 600 million razors!
Looking around the exhibition, you can see how the design has changed
over the decades, and technology: there were batteries, colored plastic,
from one shaver head came to all three.
17. And here is the main model for today - SensoTouch 3D
19. You can also try the new razor. And engaged than writer Leonid Kagan.
One of the SensoTouch 3D designers told us how to create the product -
many months of studies of consumer preferences (shape, material, etc.)
in different categories of things - phones, cars, computers, watches,
21. Might look like a razor, if not the main enemies of designers - marketing)
24. It turns out that shaving "by zero" provides special design knives. Here they are in a larger size, like shields, whose aim to catch hairs. That it is made by Soviet aerospace technology!
25. First hooked knife and pulls the hair, and the other cuts it.
Soviet technology, bought by Philips in 1988 in Ufa, allows you to make
holes in the washer with the special shape of the electrodes and a
special solution (you can see the video as it happens).
Production itself is not small - a lot of rooms, which produce nearly
200 items, of which is, for example, SensoTouch 3D, then it all going to
probably 90 percent - automatics.
30. Around some incredible robots.
31. One of the most interesting sights - the smelting of plastic parts. General of the shops do not want to leave, conveyors each component for the production of very interesting
