Did OSU torpedo 2011 season

The Boys of Columbus face two key early-season tests that could derail their road back to New Orleans for next year’s BCS National Championship Game. OSU struggled in every road game except Minnesota in 2010. After two cupcake home games against Akron and Toledo, the Buckeyes play at Miami (Fla.) in week three. The Hurricanes played zombie football the last half of 2010 — anyone who watched Notre Dame dismantle them in the Sun Bowl could see that. The new eye of the Hurricanes, Al Golden, is a strict disciplinarian. He’ll have slackers running stadium stairs or shown the door. Come week five, the Spartans will visit Columbus. If the NCAA reduces the suspensions of Pryor, Herron, Posey, Adams and Thomas to four games, this could be their first game of the season. But if the NCAA upholds the suspensions, it’s likely Joe Bauserman, Jordan Hall, Corey Brown, Chris Fields, Andrew Norwell and Adam Bellamy will play major roles in beating Sparty, who loses veteran players on defense but returns with a strong offense. If OSU goes without the suspended five against Sparty, it might be a home underdog, which is rare for the Buckeyes. The last time this happened was against USC in 2009. The Sugar Bowl triumph feels good, but OSU might have mortgaged away another national title run in the process. “Through all adversity lies a blessing.” Solomon Thomas said that after Ohio State’s Sugar Bowl victory over Arkansas on Jan. 4. In a game full of turbulence, it was fitting that five of the Shameful Six played fabulous roles in the win. But now it’s time to look to next season. By letting those players work their magic in the bowl, OSU might have cursed its 2011 national title hopes. Thomas, Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey and Mike Adams say they’ll return next season, putting OSU ahead of the Big Ten class: Michigan State will lose key players, including All-American linebacker Greg Jones; Wisconsin will lose powerhouse Scott Tolzein, winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top senior quarterback; Iowa has to start over; and Michigan is nowhere to be found. Big Ten newcomers, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, will compete for the 2011 conference crown with quarterback Taylor Martinez. However, it’s a catch-22 for OSU: The Shameful Six were allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl, but all except Jordan Whiting can’t play the first five games of next season for their part in Tattoo-gate. OSU appealed to reduce the suspensions. The Sugar Bowl win salvaged 2010 for the Buckeyes, who snapped their nine-bowl-game losing streak against the SEC, dating to 1978. By letting the suspended athletes play in the bowl, OSU might have pulled the plug on a 2011 National Championship run. read more

Ohio State womens hockey to feature veteran leadership in 201213

After finishing 16-16-4 last season, Ohio State’s women’s ice hockey team is scheduled to kick off its 2012-2013 campaign this Friday with a handful of veteran players in new leadership roles. The team nominated senior forward Hokey Langan to be the Buckeyes’ team captain. The Chatham, Ontario, product is seventh on OSU’s career scoring list with 105 points thanks to 46 goals and 59 assists. Buckeyes Coach Nate Handrahan said choosing Langan to be the team’s captain was a pretty simple choice. “Girls look to her for leadership and she is a very talented player, has a lot of experience, knows a lot from playing in the level she played at prior to being here with international competition,” Handrahan said. Handrahan commented on Langan’s individual strengths. “I think her hockey IQ and knowing the game, but I think she bleeds scarlet and grey and wants to win,” Handrahan said. “I think that has to be at the crux of your leadership and she is willing to do what it takes to win.” Langan said she is happy that her team chose her to be its captain and thinks the team has confidence in her. “It was an honor and one of the goals I had set freshman year,” Langan said. “I like to say I am a leader and that my teammates respect me and have faith in me to bring this team wins.” Langan attributed her strengths to her teammates and her knowledge of the game. “My teammates make me a lot better than I am myself, but I like to say that I can read the ice really well,” Langan said. “I am a good passer when I am given an opportunity.” Langan, though, won’t be the only member of the Buckeyes in a leadership role this season. Senior forwards Paige Semenza, Tina Hollowell and Minttu Tuominen will serve as the three assistant captains. Semenza, a two-time Ohio State Scholar-Athlete from Pittson, Pa., severed as assistant captain last season and said her new role is about having experience. “It was definitely honoring being an assistant last year and it gave me experience that I was able to build on,” Semenza said. “Coming into my senior year, I wanted to be a leader and help my teammates.” Handrahan said Semenza’s attention to detail is what makes her a qualified leader. “Paige is a quiet worker who pays attention to all the little details in her life and that helps her on the ice,” Handrahan said. Hollowell, a native of Clinton Township, Mich., was named an Academic All-Big Ten selection and Ohio State Scholar-Athlete last season. Handrahan said Hollowell is the core of the team and inspires each player. “Tina is our heartbeat, our emotional leader, our warrior that inspires us to play well,” Handrahan said. Tuominen, a native of Espoo, Finland, is a former member of the Finnish National team and Olympic bronze medalist. Handrahan said the senior forward is an excellent leader. “Minttu is someone that has international competition and she is an Olympic medalist, obviously a talented player,” Handrahan said. Handrahan has not set any goals for the team but said he thinks the team has a good work ethic that will take them far. “I think this team can work hard and compete,” Handrahan said. “The potential for good things is there but we won’t really know until we drop the puck on Friday.” The Buckeyes will host its season opener against Lindenwood at the Ohio State Ice Rink on Friday at 7:07 p.m. read more

Mens Soccer Buckeyes travel to Ann Arbor to take on No 21

Ohio State men’s soccer head coach Brian Maisonneuve watches the Buckeyes play in the first half of the game against the University of South Florida on Sept. 7, 2018. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorComing off a 0-0 draw at home against Northwestern on Friday while playing nearly half the game down a man, the Ohio State men’s soccer team  (1-5-2, 0-1-1 Big Ten) heads to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to take on the Wolverines (5-1-1, 1-0-1 Big Ten) on Tuesday. Ohio State redshirt senior midfielder Brady Blackwell said even though Ohio State’s battles with Michigan are mostly noted on the gridiron, the rivalry transcends all sports between the two schools. “I think everyone comes here because they know about the rivalry in football obviously, but I think it carries over to every single sport, so we’re not very fond of them,” Blackwell said. “They don’t really like us very much.” The Wolverines come into this week ranked No. 21 in the nation, according to the United Soccer Coaches Poll, and are on a six-game unbeaten streak following their only loss of the season, at home to Tulsa on Aug. 24.Michigan is a team that is both effective and dangerous on offense. The Wolverines have outscored their opponents 15-5 on the season while outshooting them 101-48. The Wolverines’ attack is spearheaded by sophomore forward Umar Farouk Osman’s four goals and two assists, combined with eight points apiece from junior forward Jack Hallahan and sophomore forward Mohammed Zakyi.Meanwhile, the Wolverines are just as strong between the pipes, with sophomore goalkeeper Henry Mashburn currently holding a 0.68 goals against average for the season, accompanied by four clean sheets.“Michigan’s very good this year, very athletic, tough and they get after you,” Ohio State head coach Brian Maisonneuve said. “It’s going to be a battle and we’re going to have to match their fight because you know they’re going to come out a hundred miles per hour.”Maisonneuve said that a top concern of his is how his players will recover on such short rest following the tough double-overtime battle against the Wildcats Friday night in Columbus. “The hardest part about double overtime on Friday is we’ve got to turn around and do it on Tuesday, so it’s going to be a really quick turnaround,” Maisonneuve said. “Managing bodies is going to be the No. 1 thing.”With eight games under their belt, a new coaching staff and system and a whole lot of soccer left to be played, the Buckeyes seem to be settling in.The defense rebounded from a tough outing at Penn State last weekend to shut out Northwestern on Friday despite being a man down, while the offense played its most effective game of the season last time out. The Buckeyes and Wolverines are set to play in Ann Arbor at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. read more

Pogba wont make Juve switch Fabio Paratici

first_imgJuventus sporting director Fabio Paratici revealed the club holds Paul Pogba in high esteem but are not considering to reunite with him any time soon.Pogba is believed to be having a torrid time with Mourinho at Old Trafford and has been linked with a move to other clubs including Turin.But the Juve supremo has ruled out any move for him.“We love him very much,” Paratici confirmed at the Manlio Scopigno awards.“We’re connected to him, but we’ve never thought about it and we’re not going to think about it.“Sergej Milinkovic-Savic? He’s a great player, but we haven’t spoken to him or Lazio.”Paratici will soon have more responsibility with the Bianconeri, as general manager Giuseppe Marotta is leaving on October 25.ole gunnar solskjaer, manchester unitedReport: Up to seven first team players out for United George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Manchester United have some serious injury problems with up to seven first-team players out.This Saturday, United have a Premier League clash with Leicester City….“Up until now, I’ve managed quite well behind the scenes, not least due to my character. Now the situation will change a bit, but I’ll keep working to make Juventus as strong as possible.“I dedicate this award to the person who raised me, and really for me, he’s been a putative father: Dr. Marotta.“Could he go to Inter? I wouldn’t be surprised, because he’s a great director and one of the best of the past 10 years, perhaps along with [Adriano] Galliani, and the Nerazzurri are a great club.“I only hope that he’s happy, and if that means being a director at a big Italian club, that’s fine.“As for myself, I’ve never thought about changing, I’m in love with Juventus. I like the environment in which I work and I like the squad.“Fortunately I have a very well prepared staff and I share my ideas with [Vice-President] Pavel Nedved and the Coach [Max Allegri].”last_img read more

Official Sevilla sign Marko Rog on loan from Napoli

first_imgSevilla have completed the loan signing of Napoli midfielder Marko Rog until the end of this season.The 23-year-old midfielder joined Napoli for a reported fee of €13m in 2016 from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb on a five-year deal and has since managed 67 appearances in all competitions.Under new coach Carlo Ancelotti, however, Rog has only started four of his 11 games this season at Napoli.This had prompted talk of a move to Spain with Sevilla, despite reported interest from German side Schalke 04.Speaking in a press conference last week, Ancelotti confirmed that Rog will likely leave Napoli in this month’s transfer window with Sevilla president Jose Castro announcing on Monday that a deal was close to being completed.“We’ve made two quality signings [in Munir El Haddadi and Max Wober] and there’s another [Rog] who has just landed in Seville. We hope to close a deal for him tomorrow,” Castro told Diario de Sevilla.“It’s good proof of this club’s ambition to build a more competitive team and fight for all the objectives we have in front of us.”Now Sevilla have confirmed the news of Rog’s arrival but made no mention of an option to buy him at the end of his five-month loan deal.“Sevilla FC and SSC Napoli have reached an agreement in principle for the loan of Marko Rog until the 30th of June 2019,” read a statement on the club website.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.The transfer brought up quite the little scandal in Spain after Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli vowed to take Spanish news outlets to court after being falsely quoted as saying that Rog will leave them for Sevilla earlier this month.However, the Croatian has now begun training at Sevilla and will be hoping to put his troubles from Italy behind him at Andalusia.It’s uncertain yet whether Sevilla manager Pablo Machin will select him in the squad that will face Barcelona in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final clash on Wednesday night.Los Rojiblancos hold a 2-0 aggregate lead over the cup holders and will need to avoid losing the return leg by more than two goals to progress to the semi-finals of the competition.📸 Rog arrived in time to take part in his first training session with #SevillaFC. 🇭🇷⚽️Here’s how the session went ➡️ https://t.co/5zbh7L0O6w#vamosmisevilla#WeNeverSurrender 💪❤️ pic.twitter.com/6vsrBgGWnV— Sevilla FC (@SevillaFC_ENG) January 29, 2019last_img read more

Dolphins have ability to sense electrical signals

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. In a new study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, researchers reveal the discovery of how the Guiana dolphin, Sotalia guianensis, is able to sense electric fields of prey in the water using structures found on the animals head.center_img Explore further While electroreception is often seen in fish and amphibians, it is not common in mammals. As a matter of fact, until this new research, the only mammal to show the ability to sense electric fields was the platypus.The researchers, led by Wolf Hanke from the University of Rostock in Germany studied some rare captive Guiana dolphins at a zoo in Muenster, Germany. When examining the rostrum of the dolphins, or the forward part of the head that contains the jaw, the researchers noticed small depressions. When one of the dolphins died, the researchers examined these depressions and found that they are crypts and hold whiskers when the dolphins are in the womb. These whiskers later drop off after the dolphin is born. It had been assumed these were just the depressions left after the whiskers were gone, but the researchers believed they were somehow still aiding the dolphin’s senses.Turning to the remaining dolphin in captivity, the researchers trained the dolphin to rest it’s head on a platform fitted with electrodes designed to deliver electrical signals into the water. When the researchers delivered a signal, the dolphin was rewarded if it swam away. If there was no signal, the dolphin was rewarded for staying in place.To prove that the signal was indeed being sensed through these crypts, the researchers then fitted the dolphins with a plastic shield that covered the crypts. With the shield in place, the dolphin did not move regardless of whether an electrical signal was present or not.The Guiana dolphin is similar to the more commonly known bottlenose dolphin but lives off the east coast of South America. Similar to other toothed cetaceans, the Guiana dolphin hunts and locates prey using echolocation, or sound waves.While echolocation is good for finding prey from a distance, it does not work well at close range. The Guiana dolphin routinely feeds at the bottom of the ocean where the water can be very murky. It is here that the researchers believe that electroreception comes in handy.The researcher’s next plan is to examine other dolphin species to see if they too have the same ability.

Rep Berman fights for increased government transparency with first bill

first_img14Jan Rep. Berman fights for increased government transparency with first bill Categories: Berman News State Rep. Ryan Berman submits his government transparency plan to the House enrolling clerk.State Rep. Ryan Berman, along with a bipartisan group of his Michigan House colleagues, has introduced a comprehensive plan to increase the transparency of state government.Berman, of Commerce Township, said Michigan is one of a very few states that still exempts its governor, lieutenant governor and the Legislature from sunshine laws. The bipartisan solution would remove these exemptions and make the government more accountable to the people of Michigan.“Transparency isn’t a partisan issue,” Berman said. “Transparency is about being open and accountable to the people we’re here to serve.”The transparency plan will subject the Legislature to a new Legislative Open Records Act (LORA) and the governor and lieutenant governor to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).“State representatives, senators and the governor should be held to the same transparency laws as local governments and school boards. It makes no sense to exempt our elected state officials from these important standards,” Berman said. “It’s time to update the law and set an example of openness and honesty.”Just like some documents containing sensitive personal information are exempt from disclosure by local governments under the current FOIA law, the new LORA will exempt some records, including letters to and from people in the district, human resources files, and ongoing legislative investigations or lawsuits.The plan, laid out in House Bills 4007-16, has been referred to the House Government Operations Committee for consideration.###last_img read more

Digital Elements Charlie Johnson Charlie Johnson

first_imgDigital Element’s Charlie Johnson.Charlie Johnson, digital media director of Europe for Digital Element discusses using IP Intelligence data to manage digital rights and improve user experience.A quarter of internet consumers in Europe are being blocked from routine online activities, including streaming media and uploading content to popular social network sites, according to a recent Eurobarometer survey. Additionally, the survey found that a large proportion of browsers (41% of mobile and 37% of fixed line) experience problems viewing video content due to connection speed issues.These types of negative online experiences can frustrate users, are damaging for brands, and in the majority of cases are unnecessary. There is an alternative. By using IP Intelligence data, content providers can stream media to the right visitors at the right speed, enhance the customer experience, increase customer loyalty, and comply with geographic content rights.IP Intelligence is information returned from a user’s IP address – information such as location, connection speed and ISP. With this information, websites can make decisions about what content to make available to web visitors. However, it is important to work with accurate data, and not all IP data providers are created equal. There is a vast chasm between those who simply repackage publicly-available data and premium providers who deploy multiple methodologies to analyse IP routing infrastructure.Premium IP data, at its most granular level, can enable websites to accurately locate a user down to the city/postal code sector level without becoming personally-identifiable. The coverage is global, accuracy is 99.99% at a country level, and the data is refreshed regularly. It is an effective business solution that is simple to integrate into content streaming platforms and manage in-house. Conversely, publically-available data has patchy global coverage, is rarely updated, and is inherently inaccurate.It is vital for content providers to comply with digital rights licenses, either at a country or regional level, and yet many are using poor approaches that restrict content to users who should be able to view, while allowing access to those who should not. The deployment of accurate IP technology negates this issue because it accurately identifies the user’s location. At the same time, working with less accurate data providers can create false restrictions, leading to disgruntled consumers, as the Eurobarometer survey intimates.Furthermore, accurate IP-derived connection speed data helps ensure streaming content is optimised to the viewing platform and helps eliminate the technical problems associated with delivering video or music over a range of devices and connectivity types.To summarise, content owners can optimise the web media viewing experience and reduce negative online experiences by deploying the following IP-derived data parameters:Geolocation Accurately locating web visitors down to postal code sector/zip level enables delivery of localised content and eradicates false positives while maintaining geographic rights compliance with content owners. Accuracy can only be achieved by using accredited IP data specialists monitoring the constantly changing public internet 24/7.Connection speedThe web viewing experience can also be enhanced by optimising the content format according to the user’s connection speed and type, seamlessly providing a positive brand experience and reducing abandonment from poorly-displayed content.ProxiesContent owners also need to protect themselves from those actively falsifying their location, but not to the detriment of other legitimate users. Proxy IPs can fluctuate within a day, and therefore daily and weekly updates to this data is necessary to minimise the risk of false positives.MobileBeing able to recognise the device type and/or connection type is important to optimise content delivery. Distinguishing between WiFi, fixed internet, 3G and 4G can enhance a user’s viewing experience and generate additional revenue channels while maintaining consumer loyalty.As Europe continues to move towards an “open internet”, website and content owners need to continue to embrace IP data targeting to connect and enhance users’ online viewing experiences, whilst remaining focused on compliance and rights management. Simple, cost-effective and intelligent IP targeting is an integral component of a geographic rights management solution that protects online content owners while also building strong consumer relationships.For more information visit info.digitalelement.com/uk[advert_ banner]last_img read more
