We knew they were having a tough time so we wanted to keep going at them. And it worked because they dropped a bit and we got the second goal.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

And of course, like any good episode of Cribs, we get a look at the players’ cars.Playing football at Ohio State looks like a decent time. Not that we didn’t already know it.last_img read more

Frontcourt provides relief in Ohio State womens basketballs 9770 win

OSU forward Alexa Hart (22) looks for space around defending Virginia Cavaliers forward Sydney Umeri (44) on Dec. 21 at the Schottenstein Center. Photo Credit: Greg Bartram | USA TODAY SportsThe Ohio State women’s basketball team has relied heavily on the explosiveness of the nation’s top-scoring duo during the 2015-16 season.That wasn’t the case Thursday evening at the Schottenstein Center against the Indiana Hoosiers.Top Buckeye guards, sophomore Kelsey Mitchell and senior Ameryst Alston, were held in check early on in Columbus, prompting the OSU frontcourt to come alive. The extra effort was definitely needed for the No. 5 Buckeyes (11-3, 3-0) to fend off Indiana (9-6, 1-2) at home, 97-70.“They came out ready to play right off the jump,” OSU junior forward Shayla Cooper said. “We had to match their intensity, and once we matched it we actually took it to another level after that.”The Buckeyes have struggled immensely with their perimeter defense this season, ranking dead last amongst Big Ten teams in 3-point defense. A lack of outside pressure has allowed teams to attack OSU with an onslaught of long-range jumpers from the tip.Matters were no better on Wednesday when Indiana opened up the first quarter of play shooting 4-of-6 from beyond the arc.“I think putting more pressure on the ball, not letting them see the open man,” Cooper said of the team’s solution to Indiana’s hot start.Multiple missed layup opportunities also stymied OSU from overcoming Indiana. However, OSU sophomore Alexa Hart and Cooper continued to work the interior, sparking a 10-3 run that knotted the contest at 18 after one quarter of play. Hart registered a double-double on the night, scoring 18 points and collecting 13 rebounds.Despite breaking out of an early shooting slump, the Buckeyes still could not entirely pull away from the Hoosiers. That’s because OSU’s elite scorers Mitchell and Alston continued to be held in check by Indiana, combining to shoot 4-of-18 from the field in the first half.“The way (Indiana) came out, the way they shot the ball, I think that prevented us from doing things that we usually do,” Mitchell said.Nevertheless, OSU’s presence in the post continued to eat away at Indiana. Cooper provided a 14-point first-half spark off the bench, leading a Buckeye frontcourt that outscored the Hoosiers 32-18 in the paint over the first 20 minutes. Cooper finished the night shooting 10-of-16 from the field, tallying 23 points and eight rebounds.“I like the energy and it gives us a different look when she comes in,” OSU coach Kevin McGuff said of moving Cooper to the bench.The Scarlet and Gray brought a 40-35 advantage into halftime and built some early momentum after the break. OSU’s first 3-point conversion two minutes into the second half from Mitchell brought the Buckeyes’ lead to seven and led to an Indiana timeout.Mitchell, who finished with 23 points on the night, led the team with 15 points in the third quarter on a perfect 5-of-5 shooting from the field, opening up a 12-point lead heading into the final quarter.“Sometimes when you’re not sure about yourself and you have a slow start it can wear on you,” McGuff said. “But I do think we have a lot of confidence about how we’re playing.”OSU continued to pull away via not letting up on the Hoosiers, sustaining an aggressive and pesky press on defense. That tenacity brought the team’s turnover margin to a plus-10 mark by the game’s end, and helped the Buckeyes finish with 16 points off of turnovers and 23 offensive rebounds.The Buckeyes will continue their Big Ten schedule with a matchup against Rutgers (10-4) on Sunday. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

TCEM defends manage of Provo GT dumps

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 16, 2017 – Providenciales – Turks and Caicos Environmental Management is responding to our news report where at least one resident of Grand Turk says they are fed up with the state of the dump there.One of the principals of the company, Tim Hodge contacted Magnetic Media with the aim to explain what is happening at the company which has for five years been paid to manage the dump sites, but where there are still some essential elements of the agreement undone.   We asked Mr Hodge about the tire shredder and were told that it will be here in a matter of weeks; the shredder will however, only be stationed in Providenciales where tires we understand have been accumulating for over five years.No shredder is earmarked for Grand Turk, Mr. Hodge said the plan is to recycle the tires there and he also said there is a plan to move the tires which have also been gathering at the dump for over five years.   The question which arises is where will TCEM move those hundreds of tires to in Grand Turk?The resident who brought the matter to light said he believes it would be a shift of the problem from one place to another.  The resident also said, he does not believe the spraying of the tires with a mosquito repellent is effective for the amount of tires which he photographed.   Hodge is convinced that their spraying, he said in partnership with Environmental Health, is effective.Hodge explained during that telephone call that an EPA approved style of landfill to cope with the tires was dismissed by Government as a solution.  TCIG has rejected burying the tires as research proves this is dangerous to the environment and a potentially explosive hazard; literally.To questions on keeping animals off the compounds; Hodge said the feral dogs are aggressive and dig under the fence in the Capital; but when we spoke to Grand Turk residents, they say the front gate is always opened and the animals move in and out, just as easily as vehicles dumping garbage do.The resident is also convinced that the lack of perimeter fencing is why garbage easily flies out of the dump and around the island.  It is maintained that there is no security guard in Grand Turk, though there is one in Provo.   Mr Hodge refuted that and said there is security at both sites.  Magnetic Media was offered a tour of the TCEM managed dumps in the coming week; we have accepted.TCEM was in 2012 signed on for five years as managers of the Provo and Grand Turk dumps to the tune of $1.5 million per year.#MagneticMediaNews#TCEM#poordumpmanagementTCI#TimHodgeTCEM#TCEMdefendsdumpmanagement Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #poordumpmanagementTCI, #TCEM, #TCEMdefendsdumpmanagement, #TimHodgeTCEM Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Wheeland MP says ‘Enough is enough’; Official statement on Landfill fire Burning rubber at Provo Landfill; fire again blamed on arson… again Recommended for you TCI: TCEM contract not renewed, Gov’t back in charge of dump siteslast_img read more

Famed Swiss climber dies on Everest

first_imgSwiss climber Ueli Steck as he poses at Sigoyer, in the Hautes-Alpes department of southeastern France. AFP file photoSwiss climber Ueli Steck, one of the most feted mountaineers of his generation and famed for his speed ascents of iconic Alpine routes, died on Mount Everest on Sunday, officials said.“Today morning, he had an accident on the Nuptse wall and died. It seems he slipped,” Ang Tsering Sherpa, head of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, told AFP.Steck, 40, was on Everest to acclimatise before attempting in May to summit the world’s tallest peak followed by neighbouring Lhotse, connecting a series of ridges to design a never before climbed route.Everest and neighbouring peak Nuptse share a common ridge, which is where Steck slipped and fell, according to a government official.“He skidded off about 1,000 metres from (Mt Nuptse) camp two early morning on Sunday. Other climbers ascending Everest saw him and asked for his rescue,” said Dinesh Bhattarai, director general at the Department of Tourism.Steck was climbing alone when he died. His partner, Tenji Sherpa, had sustained severe frostbite earlier and was recovering at a lower camp.His body was recovered by Nepali guides and flown by helicopter to Kathmandu.The accomplished alpinist sought to pioneer new routes throughout his career, earning the nickname “the Swiss Machine” for his record solo ascents in the Alps.He was attempting to achieve another first this year by charting a rarely climbed route to summit both Everest and Lhotse, the world’s fourth highest mountain, all without the use of supplemental oxygen.Steck was due to summit Everest via the West Ridge—a route that has recorded more fatalities than summits—before climbing Lhotse.In a video recorded in early April and posted on YouTube, Steck said he would judge the attempt a success regardless of whether he reached the top—as long as he returned alive.Mingma Sherpa, the first Nepali to summit all 14 of the world’s peaks above 8,000 metres, said the accident—the first fatality of this year’s spring climbing season on Everest—underscored the unpredictability of mountaineering.“It is very sad news, he is a very experienced climber,” he said of Steck’s death.“Things can be so unpredictable in the mountains and it can be challenging even for the most seasoned climbers.”Tributes poured in for Steck on social media, with British climber Kenton Cool—who has scaled Everest 12 times—describing him as “a true inspiration to all”.“A man that showed us all what was possible in the mountains and beyond,” Cool tweeted.Stalked by controversySteck made global headlines in 2013 when he and two other Western climbers came to blows with a group of furious Nepali guides on Everest.The brawl shocked the mountaineering community, causing a damaging rift between Western climbers and the often lowly-paid Nepali guides who are essential for commercial expeditions to the crowded summit.An angry Steck swore never to return to Everest, telling a Swiss website that his “trust (was) gone”.But he was back in the Himalayas only months later, this time to scale Mount Annapurna, the world’s tenth highest peak, via its steep Southface wall, becoming the first mountaineer to complete a solo ascent of the 8,091-metre (26,545-foot) peak.Controversially, he offered no photographic proof of his accomplishment, saying an avalanche knocked his camera out of his hand.Nevertheless, he was awarded the Piolet d’Or, mountaineering’s top accolade, for the 2013 climb.Born in the town of Langnau im Emmental near the Swiss capital Bern in October 1976, Steck was a devoted climber by the age of 12.As an 18-year-old, he climbed Mont Blanc’s Eiger massif, an achievement that attracted attention and later sponsors, setting him on a course to become a professional climber.He soon became one of the most prominent names in mountaineering after scaling some of the world’s most daunting peaks, often alone and without basic safety equipment such as fixed ropes or bottled oxygen.But, in an interview with AFP nearly two years before his death, Steck said he was never inspired by a quest for fame or records.“Personal pleasure alone dictates my approach,” he said.He told AFP that he never wanted climbing to become a “business” and was content when his income exceeded what he previously made as a carpenter.Steck was however attacked by some in the mountaineering world for resisting the use of GPS to track his movements or refusing to record photographic evidence of his achievements, criticism that he dismissed as “jealousy”.last_img read more
