Then-sophomore attack Jack Jasinski heads for the goal in the fourth quarter during the first round of the NCAA tournament against Loyola Maryland on May 14, 2017. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Former Oller ReporterIn a game all about momentum, the No. 9 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team strung together 10 unanswered goals to pull away and remain undefeated in a 14-8 victory against Hofstra in Hempstead, New York on Saturday.Ohio State (6-0) did what it does well: scoring early, putting up four straight goals on Hofstra to begin the game. Two of the goals came from junior attack and team-leading goal scorer Tre LeClaire, with both assists coming from sophomore attack/midfield Colby Smith.That hot streak transferred right over to Hofstra (2-4) as the Pride answered back with two goals to end the first quarter and continued that momentum in the second, scoring two straight again to tie the Buckeyes with four unanswered goals of its own. Every goal for the Pride came from a different player in the run.After the Pride’s breakout, the rest of the second quarter was all Buckeyes. Ohio State scored five straight before halftime to make it 9-4 at the half. The five goals included two from freshman attack Jack Myers and LeClaire’s third of the game.Though the Buckeyes had the lead at the half, the anticipated face off battle between Hofstra’s sophomore midfield/forward Brian Heber and Ohio State’s sophomore midfield Justin Inacio was in favor of Herber 8-7. Herber finished with 14 wins on 26 faceoffs, while Inacio won 10 of his 18 attempts.Although the faceoff may have been won in the second half, the game quickly became about Ohio State’s dominance in the third quarter. Ohio State scored four more goals from four different players — LeClaire scoring his fourth of the game, Myers getting his third to complete the hat trick and senior midfielder Jack Jasinski got his first of two.Leclaire is up to 20 goals on the season to led the team, while Jasinski is No. 2 with 16.With the game looking out of hand, the Pride came roaring back, again scoring four straight goals. But it came too late,  ending the game 14-8. No. 9 Ohio State comes back home to Ohio Stadium against No. 8 Denver at 1 p.m. Saturday. read more

To play in another place, three stadiums in one season would be too much.”The NFL will have a game there and 24 hours later Tottenham would host Manchester City.“Maybe we need to adapt, the day after the NFL game, maybe the pitch is not in the best condition, but we need to make the effort and to play because to find another date would be difficult,” he added.“I am a person who is always positive.

Carragher believes Barkley could be an English star

first_imgThe Chelsea footballer has scored in his last three matches in the English Premier League and played with England in the UEFA Nations League24-year-old midfielder Ross Barkley recently joined Chelsea in the English Premier League.The Liverpool-born player has appeared in 11 matches, scoring 3 goals in the last three of them.And for former footballer Jamie Carragher, he can soon become an English star.“The big one is dribbles. We all love to see players dribble but football is a passing game and maybe two or three times a game you have the chance to go on a dribble,” Carragher said to Sky Sports.Daniel Fark, Norwich City, Premier LeagueDaniel 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.“It can’t be five times a game, and I think that was where he was losing the ball at Everton. Now he is making better decisions.”“Also look at the distance covered, I think he’s fitter, stronger and maybe that is something to do with what we are seeing now at Chelsea,” he added.“He was really good for Everton but towards the end of his time there his decision-making wasn’t great.”“He dribbled when he should have passed, he passed when he should have dribbled, and the crowd got on his back and he found it difficult at times. Maybe it was the pressure of being the main man at Everton to create something,” he commented.last_img read more

Lawmakers Raise Concerns About Safety Of Migrant Children At Texas Detention Camp

first_imgIvan Pierre Aguirre via APIn this Nov. 15, 2018 photo provided by Ivan Pierre Aguirre, migrant teens held inside the Tornillo detention camp look at protesters waving at them outside the fences surrounding the facility in Tornillo, Texas.Lawmakers are raising concerns about the safety of migrant children held at a detention camp in West Texas.An Associated Press investigation published this week revealed the Trump administration waived rigorous FBI fingerprint background checks for roughly 2,100 staff members working at the Tornillo tent city.That temporary shelter falls within the district of Democratic State Representative Mary Gonzalez. She says she’s been worried about the lack of transparency at this detention site since it was first established in June.“So we heard when it was initially established it was only for 300 kids, for 30 days. Now we’re at over 2,000 kids indefinitely. So for me, what’s really important is that when you keep changing the game, it’s really hard to maintain transparency and accountability,” Gonzalez said.Republican Congressman Will Hurd released a statement Wednesday describing the problems in Tornillo as “shameful” and added that “detaining kids in Tornillo is the most expensive and least effective policy approach that fails to address root causes of migration flows or make anyone safer.”Because the Tornillo facility is on federal land, it is not currently subject to state inspections. The shelter’s current contract lasts through the end of December.The Texas Legislature begins its new legislative session on January 8. Sharelast_img read more

At Patterson Park Laundromat Diverse Service Offerings and a Helping Hand to

first_imgralejandro@afro.com The storefront of the Patterson Park Dry Cleaners and Laundry on E. Fayette St. (Photo by Roberto Alejandro)Louis Monk spent much of the past year growing the service offerings of the Patterson Park Dry Cleaners and Laundry, a business he purchased and took over last December. Running the laundromat has provided Monk with a crash course on how multiple revenue streams can buoy a business in difficult circumstances and allow helping neighbors in need.Monk, whose background is in recruiting and sales, said he wanted to go into business for himself for some time. “I knew I wanted to do something, but I didn’t know what it was,” Monk said. “So when this came up [for sale] I was like, that’s just kind of a sign.”Monk purchased the laundromat from the previous owner and added dry cleaning pick-up and delivery to the business’s offerings. “The dry cleaning is going to be the key, because there’s no overhead,” said Monk of the operation. The dry cleaning is outsourced, allowing Monk to be the face to his customers without requiring the capital and operating costs of all the necessary equipment.Because there are many small business operators – daycare providers or home healthcare aids – in the area but no copy-centers, Monk offers copying and fax services, noting that many residents rely on him to get their time-sheets in on-time. “These are the ways I generate more revenue,” said Monk of the strategy. “Multiple streams of income.”Those various streams are a necessity for a small business in a neighborhood where residents cannot afford regular laundry service, which is competing with a chain laundromat nearby, and is fighting stereotypes about Black-owned businesses. “On one hand I’m proud to be a Black small business owner, and I love it and I love the neighborhood, but on the other hand it seems like it’s kind of hard because there’s a perception out there where people think that just because you’re a Black small business owner that you’re not going to be as good as mainstream guys,” said Monk.Louis Monk, owner and operator of Patterson Park Dry Cleaners and Laundry on E. Fayette St. (Photo by Roberto Alejandro)To overcome challenges such as these, Monk has enlisted his sales background, reaching out to nearby luxury developments to establish regular dry cleaning delivery, and fold and wash services.These relationships and additional services are the foundation for the assistance he gives to those in his community.  To this end, Monk has made arrangements for students attending some of the area schools to get discounted laundry services. “I don’t want [not having clean clothes] to be an excuse where you don’t come to school,” said Monk. “How could I own a laundromat in good faith and you go to school with dirty clothes?”For customers who cannot pay full price, Monk puts his quarters into the machines so they can finish their laundry, believing he will get the quarters back at the end of the night and that the additional revenue streams will make up the difference. “I don’t get that many people where I think it’s going to be a big deal, and I get to sleep good at night too, knowing that I helped somebody out,” said Monk.last_img read more

Opening doorways to art

first_imgThe Capital will get a rare chance to peek into the mind of National Award winning sculptor K S Radhakrishnan. His solo exhibition titled In the Open will feature around 30 large scale outdoor sculptures over the last three decades.A first of its kind, this exhibition will showcase an exclusive pictorial documentation of Radhakrishnan’s site specific works installed in various government and private enterprises.Radhakrishnan’s bronze sculptures have catered to art enthusiasts, who not only have a keen eye for detail but value an artistee’s creativity. Radhakrishnan’s sculptures are mostly seen indoors in galleries and museums, but he has created many sculptures keeping open air as their real living space. According to the artiste, sculptures need breathing space and could breathe well only in an open air. Radhakrishnan further explains, ‘An open air sculpture could be public and private at the same time. My works, irrespective of their size, are always conceived as independent aesthetic entities that demand open air for their existence.’ Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘As a city, Delhi has not yet warmed up to the idea of open air sculptures, though we have few public sculptures around the capital. K S Radhakrishnan’s works are not decorative pieces.They are contemporary works of art with a strong sense of asthetic individuality expressed in the enduring medium of bronze. I am very keen to showcase this internationally recognised artiste’s sculptural narratives with all its mythical, folklore and contemporary vigour,’ said Anubhav Nath, curator of the show. The exhibition will also feature a book written by critic Johny ML focussing on Radhakrishnan’s open air sculptures.WHEN: 15 November onwardsWHERE: OJAS ARTlast_img read more

Hot off the press Kahle plan exempts press boxes from school heating

first_img Categories: Kahle News Michigan schools could see cost savings under a plan authored by state Rep. Bronna Kahle exempting outside viewing areas, such as athletic field press boxes, from unnecessary heating requirements.Kahle, of Adrian, today testified before the House Regulatory Reform Committee in support of her legislation removing the state construction code requirement that outdoor sporting event viewing areas include heating systems.Press boxes are becoming more popular at school sporting events across Michigan, helping shelter media equipment from unpredictable weather and giving coaches an additional viewing angle. Press boxes are currently classified as “A-5 structures,” requiring them to have heating structures capable of keeping the interior temperature at 68 degrees.Kahle said this burdensome regulation creates cost-prohibitive problems for many schools across the state, including Madison School District in Adrian.“The state’s requirement to put a heating system into a seasonal press box for schools is an overreach and adds unnecessary construction costs to these types of projects”, Kahle said. “This bill is a common-sense solution that clarifies the building code and helps our schools and local communities save money by eliminating needless regulations.”Kahle invited Madison School District Superintendent Ryan Rowe to testify about the district’s current football stadium renovation, and how they are running into hurdles regarding the installation of a heating system.Rowe said the project to install a heating system in the stadium’s press box would cost the district an estimated $250,000.House Bill 4548 remains under consideration in the House Regulatory Reform Committee.PHOTO INFORMATION: State Rep.
