Bio State budget vs. job creation – January 22, 2015 BAR HARBOR — The Trojans baseball team looked as though it was going to stage a late-game comeback against the Foxcoft Academy Ponies on May 11 at Mount Desert Island High School. With two outs and bases loaded, a Foxcroft error sent the tying MDI run across the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning, but after an umpire consultation, the call was reversed sending MDI runner Jasper Cousins back to third base. One quick out later and the game ended 6-5 in the Ponies’ favor. A series of errors by second baseman Willie Clark in the third inning gave the Ponies a jumpstart, putting the team in the lead 4-1.The Trojans worked their way back into the game by the bottom of the fourth, taking Foxcroft’s lead down to two points, 5-3. Both teams went three and out in the next two innings. In the top of the sixth, the Ponies tacked one more run on a dropped grounder.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThen the Trojans hopes were raised and dashed by a swirl of events.

The 1983 Syracuse men’s lacrosse team had two uniforms: blue and white.Leading up to the ‘83 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship, the Orangemen were slated to wear their away blue uniforms against Johns Hopkins. But the team had other plans. Sophomore midfielder Brad Kotz, who was later named the tournament’s MVP, remembers the players urging coach Roy Simmons Jr. to implement a new color style.“We had never worn orange before that game,” Kotz said. “But we were the Orangemen, and it seemed only right to put on orange, like a tradition or something.”Simmons called to Syracuse to see if orange uniforms could be delivered to Rutgers. The team’s wish was granted and it was presented with new, orange jerseys prior to the game. The players thought they were upholding a tradition with the new shirts. In retrospect — 30 years and 11 national titles later — they were starting a far bigger one.Winning.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orangemen would go on to defeat Johns Hopkins 17-16 in the title game to capture the first national championship in school history. That 1983 squad is remembered for breaking ground. Members of the team recall their championship fondly, and know their role in catapulting SU into the national spotlight.“We had never experienced anything like that, not only as a team but as individuals,” then-sophomore defender Fred Cambria said. “It made us really start to appreciate the meaning of the word ‘team,’ because that is what that championship was all about.”It was like something out of a movie.Syracuse fell behind 12-5 in the middle of the third quarter and looked all but defeated. But then something clicked, something that none of the players will ever be able to explain.It started with Darren Lawlor’s goal late in the third quarter. Then Kotz and fellow sophomore Tim Nelson, both All-Americans, put the Orangemen onto their backs. Nelson poetically quarterbacked SU’s offense while Kotz started winning every faceoff and scoring at will. The result was eight straight goals that ended with an exclamation point.“When Randy Lundblad scored the goal that iced it I remember getting onto my knees and sliding at half field,” Nelson said. “I didn’t know what else to do, we shocked ourselves.”It wasn’t that the Orangemen weren’t used to winning. They were 13-1 on the season before beating Johns Hopkins, and the program was known for churning out competitive teams. But the team was also used to playing second fiddle to the national prominence of programs like Johns Hopkins and North Carolina.Heading into the 1983 championship game, Johns Hopkins had 39 championships, four in the NCAA. The Blue Jays were also celebrating the program’s 100th anniversary that season. Beating Johns Hopkins wasn’t just unlikely, it was unheard of.Still, the Orangemen’s determined upperclassmen weren’t going to let the past dictate the future.“We didn’t get the memo that we were supposed to lose that day,” then-senior defensive captain Jeff McCormick said. “Being a senior on a team with so much young talent wasn’t necessarily challenging. I just had to always let guys know that we could play with anyone, and I think we proved that.”Three decades later, Syracuse has become a perennial NCAA contender like the Johns Hopkins team that was supposed to derail its title hopes. The program now has 11 NCAA championships and 27 final four appearances, having become a destination for the nation’s top talent.“It’s not that we were angry being behind the Hopkins’ and UNC’s of the world, it’s just how it was,” said Derek Maltz Sr., a sophomore midfielder in 1983. “But what we did was huge. It allowed everyone to see what those inside the program knew all along. That Syracuse was one of the best lacrosse schools in the country, and is to this day.”The elder Maltz walked onto the team in 1982 and his son, Derek Maltz Jr., now starts for an SU team that will vie for the program’s 12th title Monday afternoon against Duke. Thirty years ago, Maltz and his teammates carved out a path. Now they watch as another generation attempts to walk down it.“To know that my son now has the opportunity to achieve the same thing I did is really special for me,” Maltz said. “Everyone deserves the feeling of winning a national championship. Everybody.”All of the members of the team have gone down different roads since a rare collection of ambition and talent brought them together on the biggest stage in college lacrosse.Cambria went into the entertainment business and won a National Sports Emmy for his work on the HBO sports documentary, “Assault in The Ring.” Kotz won two championships with the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League after graduating from SU. He’s since settled down with his family outside of Washington D.C., owns a small business, and runs a lacrosse program that his two daughters play in. Maltz coordinates various defense agencies in the Washington D.C. area.Maltz, his former roommate Cambria, and Kotz met up in Philadelphia to watch SU’s 8-7 final four win over Denver on Friday. They’ll do so again for the title game on Monday.McCormick founded Saturn Partners in 1994 and was recently named the executive producer of the movie Crooked Arrows. He will be celebrating his wife’s birthday during SU’s championship quest, and will obtain updates any way he can.And then there’s Nelson, the team’s steady facilitator that refused to accept defeat. Nelson is currently the assistant vice president of advancement at Utica College, after serving as the men’s head lacrosse coach from 1999-05. He has been, and will continue to watch this year’s SU team from his couch.Regardless of where life has taken them since winning it all together, they all see this year’s team the same way.As the 2013 Orange head into a championship game of its own, they are predecessors to the success achieved 30 years ago, another symbolization of just how monumental that inaugural championship team was.“I won’t say we’re the best team in SU history, but we’ll always be the first,” Nelson said. “The fact that I’ll always be able to say that, well, that’s nice.” Comments Published on May 26, 2013 at 1:46 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+

The Warriors won’t proclaim themselves NBA champions already. But only one week into training camp, and Warriors coach Steve Kerr said “it’s the best camp we’ve had” since he began coaching them in the 2014-15 season.Those are telling words considering the Warriors have won three NBA titles in the past four years under Kerr. It helps that the Warriors still have their four All-Stars in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. They added a fifth one last summer by …

Madrid: Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez might have been rested but instead both played and scored as Barcelona came from behind to beat Rayo Vallecano, ahead of their crunch Champions League second leg against Lyon. Raul de Tomas’ scintillating strike gave struggling Rayo a surprise lead at the Camp Nou but Messi converted a penalty and Suarez finished a brilliant passing move to seal a 3-1 win, after Gerard Pique had headed in an equaliser on Saturday. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherWhen Barca kicked off, Atletico Madrid had just completed their own 1-0 victory over Leganes, although Diego Simeone was more cautious, resting Antoine Griezmann, Alvaro Morata and Saul Niguez, with Tuesday’s trip to Juventus in mind. “It is normal when there is an important game on Tuesday,” said Simeone, who substituted Griezmann at half-time. “He was not injured, he had just given all that he had to give.” There was always a risk that La Liga’s top two might take their eye off the ball, given Barcelona’s last 16-tie with Lyon hangs in the balance after a goalless draw in France, while Atletico hold a 2-0 lead over Juve but can expect an onslaught in Turin. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open”We have a crucial match on Wednesday,” Ernesto Valverde said. “We know the importance it has for many reasons — because of the opponent, the competition and because we have seen what has happened to other big teams already.” Yet both avoided slip-ups to leave Real Madrid even further adrift in La Liga before they play away at Real Valladolid on Sunday. Barca stay seven points clear of Atletico and, temporarily at least, move 15 ahead of Real. Even with a two-goal cushion for the final eight minutes, Ernesto Valverde kept Messi and Suarez on until the end, which may have surprised some, given he was accused of exhausting key players last season at the expense of success in Europe. Messi’s appearance was his 443rd for Barcelona in La Liga, moving him ahead of Andres Iniesta and behind only Xavi Hernandez, on 505, in the club’s all-time list. Samuel Umtiti started his second match in three months after recovering from a knee injury. “Little by little he is reaching his level,” said Valverde. But Philippe Coutinho was underwhelming again, despite being picked ahead of Ousmane Dembele. He poked an early chance wide after a Messi cross and De Tomas put Rayo in front soon after, driving at Pique before unleashing a sizzling shot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Pique headed one Messi free-kick wide and then another in at the near post, nipping in front of Rayo goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski to nod in his sixth goal of the season. Dembele came on for Arthur Melo at half-time and Coutinho dropped deeper, but it was right-back Nelson Semedo that earned the penalty, after a foul from Jordi Amat. Messi made no mistake. Rayo’s belief, and energy, melted away and Barca’s third was their best of the night. Suarez freed Dembele down the right and he found Suarez again with a pull-back. Instead of shooting, Suarez bounced the ball off Ivan Rakitic in the area before finally tapping home. There was nothing as free-flowing at the Wanda Metropolitano where perhaps the greatest show of creativity came from Leganes, whose players wore shirts with the name of their mothers on their backs to celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday. The first half was almost entirely forgettable but despite the absence of attacking punch, Griezmann came off at half-time for Thomas Lemar, with no visible sign of an injury. Griezmann would have taken the penalty soon after, won by Angel Correa with some quick feet in the area, which lured Kenneth Omeruo into a clumsy challenge. Saul stepped up and missed, but tucked in the rebound after Andriy Lunin could only push the ball back into his path.
New Delhi: A day after Jet Airways suspended all its flights after running out of money, lenders to the carrier Thursday said they were “reasonably hopeful” that bidding process for the airline will end successfully. Lenders led by the State Bank of India had declined to extend more funds to Jet, forcing it to suspend all its flights. “The lenders after due deliberations decided that the best way forward for the survival of Jet Airways is to get the binding bids from potential investors who have expressed EOI (Expression of Interest) and have been issued bid documents on April 16,” a statement by lenders said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details A consortium of 26 lenders led by the SBI, with 51 per cent stake in the debt-trapped airline, has invited bids from potential suitors. “Lenders are reasonably hopeful that the bid process is likely to be successful in determining the fair value of the enterprise in a transparent manner,” it said. Banks on Wednesday rejected an immediate Rs 400 crore demand of Jet Airways, compelling it to ground operations. Jet had been, over the last few months, on a decline as competition from budget airlines hurt its profitability and led to a debt pile. It reported losses for four straight quarters despite sales holding up. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday At its peak, Jet operated 123 planes and over 600 daily flights. It was flying just seven planes on Tuesday. Its chief executive officer Vinay Dube on Wednesday wrote an email to airlines’ passengers saying “with deep sadness and with a heavy heart that we would like to share with you that, effective immediately, Jet Airways will be suspending all its domestic and international operations”. “Tuesday night, we were informed by SBI, on behalf of the consortium of Indian lenders, that they are unable to consider our request for interim funding. Since no emergency funding from the lenders or any other source of funding was forthcoming, it would therefore not have been possible for us to pay for fuel or other critical services to keep the operations going,” he wrote. He said the airline had over the last several weeks and months tried “every means possible” to seek funding, both interim as well as long term funding, to keep our operations going. “Unfortunately, despite the very best of our efforts, we have been left with no other choice today”. “A decision like this is never easy to make, but without the interim funding, which we have been repeatedly requesting for, we are simply unable to conduct flight operations in a manner that delivers to the very reasonable expectations of our guests, employees, partners and service providers,” he wrote. “After 25 years of sharing the Joy of Flying with Indian and international guests, Jet Airways and its Board of Directors have been forced to take this extreme measure, as prolonged and sustained efforts with lenders and authorities to ensure the sustainability of the airline did not yield the desired results.” He, however, said the future provides new hope and opportunity as India is better off with a flying Jet Airways. “We will now await the bid finalization process by SBI and the consortium of Indian lenders and will continue to support the bid process initiated by the lenders,” he added. Passengers who had booked on Jet for travel on future dates will get a refund. “We sincerely and profusely apologise for the disruption to your travel plans. We would like to thank you for your continued patronage, support and loyalty over the years. We are hopeful that we will be able to bring the Joy of Flying back to you soon,” he added.
Rabat – After he had an accident with Tom Coronel in Marrakech, driver Mehdi Bennani of Morocco was disqualified from the race on Sunday for being underweight.This is big disappointment for Moroccans who were expecting their superstar to shine in the World Touring Car Championship that kicked off on Sunday in Marrakech.Bennani crashed into Tom Coronel at the startline, and Coronel’s Chevrolet was destroyed after it hit the wall hard and then bounced back across the track. Bennani has been given a three-place grid penalty for the race next week for the incident, but the worst is yet to come.After Mehdi Bennani passed Mikhail Kozlowski and was ranked fifth in the provisional results, he was supposed to qualify to the second race of World Touring Car Championship. However he has been disqualified for technical reasons.According to Touring Car Times, Bennani “has now been excluded as his car has been found to be underweight in scrutinizing.”According to the same source, “the minimum weight for the Honda Civic, like the Citroën, the Lada and the Chevrolet, which all are running maximum ballast in Morocco and France is 1,164kg.”Edited by Jessica Rohan© Morocco World News.

Jack Wilshere revealed that Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal in the summer led to his own exitThe 26-year-old midfielder signed for West Ham United on a three-year deal in July as a free agent after ending a 17-year association at Arsenal.Wilshere opted to leave the Emirates Stadium following talks with new manager Unai Emery over his role at the club.But Wilshere admits that Wenger would have convinced him to stay with the Gunners as the Frenchman would have ensured his place in the team.“If Arsene had stayed I would have stayed because of the influence he had in my career and the trust he had in me,” Wilshere told the Islington Gazette.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“He gave me the armband and respected me a lot. So, I had pretty much agreed to stay. And then he left and that changed things.“Arsene had said to me previously ‘stay and fight your way back into the team’.

The goal for FinTech Innovate, which took place in London from 5 – 6 December 2017, was to “encourage innovation in the interest of consumers”.Domus Semo Sancus (DSS) was one of the FinTech firms that got an invitation to the gathering, and it was represented by its Chairman and CEO, E. Jay Saunders, and Head of Technical Development, Rohit Trivedi. During the two day gathering, attendees discussed how to promote innovation within current AML requirements, combining data protection with AML innovation, unlocking new technologies in AML compliance, transaction monitoring technologies, AML and digital ID considerations in Open Banking, and the FCA’s Regulatory Sandbox.Commenting on DSS’ attendance at the gathering, Saunders stated that “we would like to thank the FCA for inviting us to FCA Innovate. London is the FinTech capital of the world and it is one of two cities that we’re currently considering for our European headquarters, and so it made sense for us to attend.” He further expressed that “UK financial firms spend over US$5B per year on regulatory compliance, a market that our award-winning enhanced due diligence software SafetyNet.ai caters to, and it would be remiss of us not to seek to establish a foothold in this market, especially considering our close ties to the UK.” Related Items:
Works of artists from Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique and India comprise the travelling exhibition underway at the India International Centre here. The series of uncanny artworks seem to tell a story. An anti-clock wise tour of the gallery indicates an evolution, a moving forward of time.Organised by Perve Galeria with support of the Portugal Embassy, the exhibition Lusophonies/Lusofonias display both modern and contemporary art by different generations of the Portuguese speaking countries or Lusophones which include Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique and certain parts of India. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’All the artworks in the exhibition have a common connection, whether experiential or through a formal aesthetic, related to African roots. A troika of oxymoronic images, two from India and one from Africa, serves as a prologue to the collection which manifests the cross-cultural developments that followed the colonization across continents and the struggle against it.“The origin of this collection was the need to reflect on how lusophone countries saw and see Lusophonie, a plural and dialectical vision, full of discrepancies, ambiguities and mutual contamination about culture, society, and even about a common language,” says Nunes. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe show has been chronologically divided into three sections: ‘Colonialism’, ‘Independence’ and ‘Miscegenation and Diaspora.’ Moving from one period to another in the anthology portrays a clear evolution from the “tendency to use art as a revolutionary discourse” in colonies to the establishment of sovereign political regimes after independence.“In Portugal, the freedom of speech that followed several decades of repression was a symptom of the artistic development,” says Nunes. The final part of the Lusophonies exhibition represents the artistic development that has occurred over time extending up to the present, not only in the lusophone world, but also in the countries where artists today work about Lusophonie and African influence issues. Representation from India includes two photographs by Subodh Kerkar and a set of pots or ‘matkas’ usually used by women in Indian villages to carry water.Closing this chapter of exhibition, which speaks majorly of the African influence, is a box of postcard sized artworks, some of them suspended in the air through strings around it, by Nobel Laureate author Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The exhibition is set to be on display till February 15.

State Rep. Jason Sheppard this week introduced legislation to increase the fines for drivers who text while driving.Sheppard’s plan increases the penalty for texting while driving in Michigan from $100 for a first violation to $250, and from $200 for a second violation up to $500.“When we get behind the wheel, we are responsible for our actions,” Sheppard said. “It’s my belief if drivers face higher fines for texting and driving, they may think twice before texting so they keep their focus where it should be – on the road.”Sheppard noted the recent case of a distracted driver involved in a crash on U.S. 23 in Monroe County, killing a mother and her daughter. The driver was charged with one count of reckless driving causing death.“Statistics are telling us that more people are not driving responsibly. If you’re the driver, set a good example by making the best choice for you and everyone on the road by putting the phone down and being responsible,” Sheppard said. “No text message is worth someone’s life.”The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that drivers who text are up to eight times as likely to be involved in a crash.House Bill 4199 has been referred to the House Transportation Committee.### Categories: News,Sheppard News 15Feb Rep.

Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Dec 14 2018A randomized trial by Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center researchers indicates that magnesium optimizes vitamin D status, raising it in people with deficient levels and lowering it in people with high levels.The study reported in the December issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition is important because of controversial findings from ongoing research into the association of vitamin D levels with colorectal cancer and other diseases, including a recent report from the VITAL trial. It gave confirmation to a prior observational study in 2013 by the researchers that linked low magnesium levels with low vitamin D levels.The trial also revealed something new — that magnesium had a regulating effect in people with high vitamin D levels. The research provides the first evidence that magnesium may play an important role in optimizing vitamin D levels and preventing conditions related to vitamin D levels.Qi Dai, MD, PhD, Ingram Professor of Cancer Research, the study’s lead author, described the ideal level as being in the middle range of a U-shape because vitamin D at this level has been linked to the lowest risk of cardiovascular disease in previous observational studies.However, vitamin D was not related to cardiovascular disease in the recent VITAL trial. He and Martha Shrubsole, PhD, research professor of Medicine, Division of Epidemiology, are investigating the role that magnesium may play with cancer as part of the Personalized Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Trial.”There’s a lot of information being debated about the relationship between vitamin D and colorectal cancer risk that is based upon observational studies versus clinical trials,” Shrubsole said. “The information is mixed thus far.”Related StoriesVitamin D supplement does not prevent type 2 diabetes in adults at high risk, study findsWinter prevents the Swiss population from producing daily doses of vitamin DLow vitamin D associated with potentially harmful vaginal bacteria in pregnant black womenThey became interested in a role for magnesium because people synthesize vitamin D differently with levels of the vitamin in some individuals not rising even after being given high dosage supplements.”Magnesium deficiency shuts down the vitamin D synthesis and metabolism pathway,” Dai said.The randomized study involved 250 people considered at risk for developing colorectal cancer because of either risk factors or having a precancerous polyp removed. Doses of magnesium and placebo were customized based on baseline dietary intake.”Vitamin D insufficiency is something that has been recognized as a potential health problem on a fairly large scale in the U.S.,” Shrubsole said. “A lot of people have received recommendations from their health care providers to take vitamin D supplements to increase their levels based upon their blood tests. In addition to vitamin D, however, magnesium deficiency is an under-recognized issue. Up to 80 percent of people do not consume enough magnesium in a day to meet the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) based on those national estimates.”Shrubsole stressed that the magnesium levels in the trial were in line with RDA guidelines, and she recommended dietary changes as the best method for increasing intake. Foods with high levels of magnesium include dark leafy greens, beans, whole grains, dark chocolate, fatty fish such as salmon, nuts, and avocados.
