We had a few but it was more because they made mistakes.”But all that matters at the end of the day is we have the three points. Especially at the early stage of the season, you have to make sure that you collect as many points as possible because normally during the season you get better and better.”In the beginning of the season you are not at your best, so that’s why it’s good that we collect points.” last_img read more

Urban Meyer On Conference Strength: “I Don’t Know Anyone Else’s Schedule”

first_imgARLINGTON, TX – DECEMBER 29: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes during the Goodyear Cotton Bowl against the USC Trojans in the second quarter at AT&T Stadium on December 29, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)Among the most prominent college football talking points heading into week two was that of Ohio State’s weak remaining schedule. Michigan State is the only ranked team on the Buckeyes’ schedule, which many SEC coaches, including Bret Bielema and Dan Mullen, complained about. The weekend did not go well for those two; Mullen lost by two against LSU despite the Tigers failing to generate any kind of passing offense, while Bielema’s Razorbacks were embarrassed by Toledo.When asked about the complaints during his Monday press conference, Meyer said that he doesn’t pay attention to any other team’s schedule.Asked about strength of conferences, Urban Meyer: “I don’t know anyone else’s schedule. … I don’t know how (people) know that.”— Ari Wasserman (@AriWasserman) September 14, 2015Urban Meyer says he has no idea how the Big Ten is perceived right now. “I don’t know anyone’s schedule…I don’t care.”— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) September 14, 2015While conference pride plays a factor in college football, for the top teams in the country, that’s probably the correct approach.last_img read more

Twitter removes accounts linked to Alex Jones Infowars

first_imgTwitter has removed some accounts thought to be used to circumvent a ban on conspiracy-monger Alex Jones and Infowars, the company said Tuesday.A Twitter spokesman confirmed that the accounts had been removed but provided no additional comment. The company says it usually does not discuss specific accounts.Twitter permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope in early September, later than many other tech companies such as Apple and Facebook. It said it based that action in reports of tweets and videos that violated its policy against abusive behaviour.The ban underscored the difficulty many social-media services face in trying to consistently apply their rules against harassment and other bad behaviour. It was also likely from the start that Jones and his supporters would find ways to get around Twitter’s ban by setting up new accounts or posting from existing accounts that were not part of the initial purge.Twitter said Tuesday it would continue to evaluate reports regarding other accounts potentially associated with @realalexjones or @infowars and would take action if it finds content that violates its rules or if other accounts are used to try to circumvent their ban.As of Tuesday afternoon, an account for Alex Jones podcasts was still up on Twitter, as was another called “InfowarsFeed” that hasn’t tweeted since 2008.Other tech companies, including PayPal, YouTube, Apple and Spotify, have limited or banned Jones’ activities on their sites.Infowars has said the moves are intended to sabotage the site just weeks before the midterm elections.On Twitter and elsewhere, Jones has done such things as describe survivors of a shooting in Parkland, Florida, “crisis actors” and saying the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012 was fake. He had about 900,000 followers on Twitter. Infowars had about 430,000.last_img read more

Decrease in amputations from frostbite thanks to Fort St John Doctor

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Residents of the region will soon receive a new way of treatment for frostbite thanks to a Dr. Jamie Wilkie.During Dr. Wilkie’s residency in Fort. St. John, he addressed a need for a better plan in dealing with frostbite in patients and recognized the use of a drug called iloprost can help by decreasing the number of amputations due to severe frostbite.“The literature for the use of iloprost in severe frostbite shows a significant decrease in the need for amputations,” says Dr. Wilkie. “The goal of this project is to improve access to the best evidence-based treatments for severe frostbite in Northern BC.” Dr. Wilkie, a recent graduate of the UBC Family Medicine residency program, chose the subject matter for his resident scholar project on the treatment of frostbite. By collaborating with Jessica Brecknock, Regional Medication Use Management Pharmacist, and Kendra Clary, Med Systems Pharmacy Technician, created a prepackaged treatment plan (order set) for use of the drug iloprost in severe frostbite cases.According to Northern Health, they approved this protocol, and it will be available for use this winter. Dr. Wilkie believes this is the first frostbite order set for iloprost in BC.Dr. Wilkie moved to Fort St. John in June 2017 and is said to be enjoying the North and all the outdoor opportunities that are available.“I previously lived and worked in Hay River [in the Northwest Territories], have dogsledded in the Yukon, and guided canoe trips in all three territories,” says Dr. Wilkie. “I have personally and professionally seen the impacts of frostbite and related exposure injuries.”last_img read more

LS polls AAP to launch second phase of campaigning on Apr 10

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will launch its second phase of campaigning for the upcoming general election on April 10 with an aim to reach out to 35 lakh people, including the working-class population, and tell them about the importance of full statehood to Delhi.Delhi minister and senior AAP leader Gopal Rai said the booth-level workers of the party would go to people, instead of calling them to jan sabhas. “In the first phase, we held jan sabhas with people, now we will go to the people, including the working class, and tell them about the importance of full statehood,” he said. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderRai added that the campaigning would be held in three phases and the second phase would start from April 10. “We will be engaging 13,814 booth heads and train them over the next two days to convey the message of the importance of full statehood to the people,” he said. The AAP leader said the third phase of campaigning would be launched after the candidates file their nominations. Rai claimed that his party’s first phase of campaigning had pushed the BJP on the “back foot”. “The BJP, which had thought it would have a walkover in Delhi, is now confused about which candidates should be fielded,” he said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsMeanwhile, he also said if the Congress is confident of winning in Punjab without an alliance, his party is also capable of winning all the seats in Delhi on its own. Questioning Congress leader Randeep Surjewala’s statement where he said his party was not in talks with the AAP or any other party for an alliance in Haryana and Punjab, Rai asked whether the Congress has forgotten about its loss in the bypolls in Jind. “I do not understand why Congress is so self-obsessed. It appears that it is in a state of maha-confusion,” he said. Rai said AAP took the decision of contesting on 35 seats in different states, keeping in mind that “it can contribute in defeating the BJP. You can win in Punjab but what about Haryana. The Congress is ready to lose but not form an alliance in Haryana,” he said. “Even people in Haryana are saying that if JJP-AAP and Congress stand together then BJP cannot win and can lose all 10 seats,” he added.last_img read more

People vote aginst divisive politics in Chandni Chowk

first_imgNEW DELHI: Chandni Chowk is one of the 7 Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi. Voting for Lok Sabha election in Delhi was held in a single phase. Voting in Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency is in the sixth phase on May 12 and counting is on May 23.Voting recorded till 6 pm was 62.69 per cent and the figure may slightly go up as polling continued at several places way beyond the deadline. Polling also started late on some booths while there were reports of EVM malfunctioning in different parts of the city. While , in the 2014 election in Chandni Chowk, 76.15 per cent or 9,82,275 voters had exercised their franchise. Of the 25 contestants who were in the fray, 22 had lost their deposits. After the delimitation of parliamentary constituencies in 2008, Chandni Chowk parliamentary constituency was divided into ten Vidhan Sabha segments namely Adarsh Nagar, Shalimar Bagh, Shakur Basti, Tri Nagar, Wazirpur, Model Town, Sadar Bazar, Chandni Chowk, Matia Mahal and Ballimaran. In 2014 Lok Sabha election, Bharatiya Janata Party’s Dr Harsh Vardhan had won the Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency with a margin of 1,36,320 votes. Dr Harsh Vardhan had bagged 4,37,938 votes as against Aam Aadmi Party’s Ashutosh who bagged the second spot with 3,01,618 votes. Congress leader Kapil Sibal was pushed to the third spot with 1,76,206 votes. Ramzan, when Muslims observe a total fast, coincided with the polling in Delhi but did not seem to deter voters in the Chandni Chowk area of the old city, save in the early hours. However, as the day progressed, people came out to cast their votes and numbers started increasing in the evening. Around 20 per cent of people living in the area are Muslims. Chandni Chowk is one of the major markets in the city but it wore deserted look on Sunday, when it remains closed. As the polling day fell of a Sunday, this could also account for the lesser numbers, said Mohammad Asif, a trader in Meena Bazar near the Jama Masjid. Meena Jasotani, 47, a resident of Chandni Chowk, said she voted for the development by the Centre. Communal discord also weighed on the mind of several voters.last_img read more

California high school under fire over Arab mascot

first_imgAlex Dobuzinskis, ReutersA California high school’s decades-old use of an Arab mascot to promote its sports teams has drawn the ire of an Arab-American rights group that says the mascot is an offensive caricature, portraying Arabs with a large nose, beard and head-covering.Coachella Valley High School sports teams are dubbed the “Arabs,” which the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee complained in a letter to the school this month plays on harmful stereotypes.The group, whose leaders say they are not aware of another U.S. school with the nickname Arab, also cited as offensive the school’s logo of an Arab, which it said was displayed in the middle of the basketball court and elsewhere at the school. “It’s a very stereotypical logo of Arabs, it has the angry-looking Arab with the hook nose and the beard,” said Abed Ayoub, director of legal and policy affairs for the group.The controversy over the Arab mascot comes as the use of ethnic team names and mascots has gained new prominence with a campaign this year to pressure the National Football League’s Washington Redskins to change their name. American Indians and others have long pilloried the Redskins moniker as racist.At the Coachella school’s sporting events, a person in an oversized mask dances and entertains the crowd as the mascot.In its letter, the Anti-Discrimination Committee described YouTube videos of half-time shows at Coachella Valley High School sporting events that show the Arab mascot making an appearance while “a female dressed as a belly dancer entertains him.”A Web search by Reuters found a video of the school’s mascot dancing with a belly dancer on a basketball court, in the middle of a circle of cheerleaders.Ayoub said he understands that the school, which opened in 1910 and is located in the arid Coachella Valley town of Thermal, 125 miles southeast of Los Angeles, originally used the Arab mascot as a nod to the region’s date-growing industry, because the date palm is associated with the Middle East.“There is an appropriate way to recognize the ties with Arabs and the Arab community, but this was not it,” Ayoub said.Coachella Valley Unified School District Superintendent Darryl Adams is due to discuss the issue with the local school board later this month, Adams’s interim assistant, Marita Rango, said. Adams was not immediately available to comment.“He just hopes to resolve the issue there with the mascot,” Rango said. “He is working with (the ADC).”Ayoub, whose group was alerted to the existence of the mascot a few weeks ago by a member in New York, said Adams has been receptive to his group’s concerns.last_img read more

Wrestling Tom Ryan eyes more dual meet emphasis in NCAA

Ohio State wrestling coach Tom Ryan addresses his team after the Buckeyes’ practice on Oct. 20. Credit: Jeff Helfrich | Lantern ReporterThe television outside of Tom Ryan’s office is often set to ESPN. Inevitably, he walks by a lot of College Football Playoff talk on the sports network. And every time he hears it, he can only think of one thing — a college wrestling playoff. This idea has been more than a thought in the mind of Ohio State’s wrestling coach. Ryan has pushed for a stand-alone, dual-meet championship tournament in the NCAA, among other things. He’s even a member of the Blue Ribbon Task Force committee, which is dedicated to developing a long-term plan for NCAA wrestling. The Blue Ribbon Task Force includes members such as North Carolina State Athletic Director Debbie Yow, NCAA executive vice president of regulatory affairs Oliver Luck and Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby. The task force was formed by the National Wrestling Coaches Association. “We’ve got some big dogs involved,” Ryan said. “And they all like the sport and they all see the value in wanting to move in this direction. And because they’re involved now, things can happen.”There is currently a proposal, unanimously approved by the committee, in the works that would change college wrestling to a one-semester sport that starts during December and would end about six weeks later than usual with a dual-meet tournament. The current individual championships would stay in March. The NCAA has yet to sign off on the proposal. Ryan’s reasoning for the change stems from the idea that dual meets are more fan-friendly than longer individual tournaments. He wants to attract more interest in his sport. “I think it’s spectator-friendly,” Ryan said. “An hour and a half, an hour and 45 minutes is way better than three days in a gym, or tournaments two days in a gym. I think it’s substantially more team-oriented. I think team sports are sports that our culture follows. I think it’s important for the sport of wrestling that we value the team aspect as much as the superstar aspect.”Ohio State has experience balancing individual success with team success. The Buckeyes won a team national championship in 2015 and their current roster is home to former individual national champions and an Olympic champion in heavyweight Kyle Snyder. Ryan said the proposed changes would place importance on more wrestlers in his program, due to the fact that dual-meet wins and losses would count more in preparation for a dual-meet tournament. “I think it would add more value to more people,” Ryan said. “Because, right now if you lose a dual meet, it doesn’t hurt your chance to win the national tournament. And because of that, you’re hesitant to put all your guys in when they may be banged up or not. So, because of that, it brings less value to your guys in the room.”Ryan said most of the opposition that the proposal faces involves the timing and scheduling of the hypothetical events. He said there also are differing viewpoints on how teams would be chosen for a dual-meet tournament and how many teams would be involved. The ability of wrestlers to maintain their peak performance for an entire season is also up for discussion. Redshirt senior Nathan Tomasello seemed to be all for the proposed changes. He placed value on the ability of dual meets to attract new, casual fans to the sport. “I think it’s important to make it more of a team sport and easier to follow,” Tomasello said. “If you don’t really know wrestling that well, it’s tough to follow how people get points at national tournaments.” Ryan said wrestling is one of the few collegiate sports that actually succeeds as a business model with ticket sales, and that gives the NCAA incentive to retool the sport and maximize profit. A dual meet at the Schottenstein Center between Ohio State and Penn State drew an attendance of 15,338 just last season. Ryan drew a comparison to Ohio State football fans tuning in to Saturday’s game between Penn State and Michigan because of a vested interest in the sport and the outcome of the game. That type of heightened interest is what he desires for the sport of wrestling. “We don’t have that in wrestling,” Ryan said. “And we need it. And until we get it, we’ll continue to be a sport that’s kind of status quo instead of one that’s thriving.” read more

Ronaldo expected better from Neymar at World Cup

first_imgBrazil legend Ronaldo Nazario has admitted that he had expected better from Neymar following his struggles at the World CupThe Paris Saint-Germain forward was only able to find the back of the net twice for Brazil in the competition and was unable to make an impact as the Selecao were surprisingly knocked out by Belgium in the quarter-finals.In fact, Neymar received more recognition for his theatrics on the pitch while reacting to tackles and any physical alterations with opposition players with fans having even gone as far as creating a game called the “Neymar Challenge”.But Ronaldo, who is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in World Cup history, did suggest that Neymar’s foot injury, which ended his club season at PSG in February, may have been a possible reason as to why he failed to produce the level of performances that had been expected of him.Ronaldo told Sport: “We all expected more from him because he’s the star of the team,”“I don’t know if it was because of the operation he had on his foot or another problem but I saw him as quite limited on the pitch.Neymar responds to PSG criticism with a stunning winner Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Despite all the backlash he got today at Parc des Princes, Neymar responded by scoring a stunning winner vs Strasbourg.We all knew that Neymar’s…“To arrive at a World Cup following an operation and three months out is complicated. To play the first match as if nothing had happened is difficult.”The next World Cup in Qatar in four years time may be Neymar’s last chance to win the tournament due to the fact that he will be 30 years old come the start of the competition.But Ronaldo feels that the 26-year-old still has time on his side to make an impact.“He must learn from this World Cup because at 26 he is still a young boy,” he said.“Either way, he’s an extremely talented young man who carries a great deal of responsibility.”last_img read more

Around the Navy Marianas Bases Withstand Super Typhoon Homes near Virginia Airfield

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Installations on the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands remain “mission capable” despite absorbing a battering Thursday from Super Typhoon Yutu’s sustained winds of 180 mph. “There have been reports of major damage to structures and property, but all U.S. military personnel are currently accounted for,” Lt. Cmdr. Karl Lettow, a Joint Region Marianas spokesman, told Stars and Stripes. Crews began clearing debris and continue to assess conditions, but leaders expect Friday to be a normal workday, Lettow said. The cyclone left widespread destruction on the islands of Saipan and Tinian. … The Navy is proposing to spend $5.2 million to connect six homes located near an auxiliary landing field used by Naval Air Station Oceana to the municipal water system, after the homeowners’ wells consistently revealed elevated levels of PFAS contaminants over the past two years.  The Navy has been providing bottled water to workers at Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress in Chesapeake and nearby homes with contaminated wells since 2016, reports the Virginian-Pilot. The Navy has agreed to test private drinking water wells near the auxiliary field twice a year. … The Navy on Wednesday released its business operations plan for fiscal years 2019-2021, an effort aimed at achieving greater efficiencies that will allow it to reallocate resources from business operations to readiness and rebuilding naval forces. “As we look forward to the future, we must continue this momentum by leveraging every resource, expert, leading practice, and efficiency we can find — from all sources, private and public — to think anew about our business operating model,” Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said, according to a press release.Navy photo by Lt.
