\"PES Stats Database\" and \"PES Stats\" are examples of websites that are dedicated to creating accurate stats for players. More experienced gamers often use \"patches\", editing the actual game code and modifying the graphical content to include accurate kits for unlicensed teams, new stadiums, and footballs from Nike, Inc., Puma, Umbro and Mitre, as well as more Adidas balls. Most patches also contain licensed referee kits from FIFA and the official logos of the various European leagues. These patches are technically a breach of copyright, and are often sold illegally in territories like South America. Konami have become less tolerant of this kind of fan editing in recent years, and now encrypt the data pertaining to kits and player statistics in each new release. However, fan communities invariably find ways to crack this encryption, and patches still appear once this has been achieved.
In December 2019, Arsenal midfielder Mesut Özil was completely removed from the Mandarin version of eFootball PES 2020 in China following a tweet from Özil, himself a Muslim of Turkish descent, that characterized the Xinjiang re-education camps as a \"crackdown\" on Uyghurs. According to NetEase Games, they stated his comments \"hurt the feelings of Chinese fans and violated the sport's spirit of love and peace. We do not understand, accept or forgive this.\" Ozil was later added during the 2022 April update.
The resistance of silane bonded epoxy/glass interfaces to subcritical crack growth was studied as a function of the density of primary bonds between the silane and epoxy using the double-cleavage drilled compression test (DCDC). The silane coupling agents propyltriethoxysilane (PES), 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (3-APES) and various mixtures of 3-APES and PES were used to systematically control the bonding density since 3-APES can form primary bonds with both the glass and the epoxy, while PES forms primary bonds only with the glass. The resistance of these interfaces to crack growth was tested under both static and cyclic loading in high and low humidity test environments. These tests allowed the separation of the effects on crack growth due to stress corrosion and cyclic fatigue. Experimental results showed that the density of primary bonding between the silane layer and the epoxy controls the cyclic fatigue resistance of the silanized interfaces. Additionally, for 3-APES bonded epoxy/glass interfaces cyclic fatigue crack growth predominates at both high and low humidities but for PES bonded interfaces, crack growth by stress corrosion dominates at high humidity and by cyclic fatigue at low humidities. For a 50% 3-APES/50% PES bonded interface, stress corrosion effects are somewhat greater than cyclic fatigue effects at high humidities but at low humidities the two effects are comparable. When testing the interfaces for durability, PES bonded interfaces showed spontaneous delamination when aged in distilled water for 36h at 94C. On the other hand, 3-APES and mixtures of 3-APES bonded interfaces did not show any detrimental effect of the cyclic fatigue resistance when aged in distilled water at temperatures up to 98C.
The deadliest disaster in the history of the Ready Made Garment (RMG) industry occurred in Bangladesh on 24 April 2013 when a sweatshop, Rana Plaza, collapsed and killed 1,134 people. The day before the collapse an engineer expressed concern over a crack in the building. Unfortunately, the factory remained open to fulfill overdue orders and collapsed when generators restarted after a power blackout. 153554b96e
