State League Wrap

first_imgThe Melbourne City Lions have won their second Women’s VT League title after defeating the Bayside Vipers by one touchdown. The win continues the two team’s strong rivalry over the past three years, and is revenge for the Lions’ loss to the Vipers in the 2008 grand final. Despite their loss in the Women’s division, the Vipers took home two of the three major awards on finals day of the 2009 VT League at Port Melbourne, winning the Men’s division and also winning the Licence Minor Premiership. The Lions went into the Women’s finals series as the form team of the season, with the Vipers not far behind. The Lions went through the first 14 rounds without losing a game, before being beaten by the Vipers in round 15. In the elimination finals, the Western Dodgers upset the Northern Falcons by two touchdowns, while the Uni Blues were two touchdown winners over the Casey Cougars. The Dodgers then progressed to the semi finals to play the Lions, with the Lions winning 7-3. In the other semi, the Vipers were too good for the Blues, winning 4-2.In wet conditions in the final, the Lions led by two touchdowns at half-time, and further extended their lead early in the second half to lead three nil. Two quick touchdowns to the Vipers got them into the game, but it was too little too late, with the Lions taking the game 3-2. After 15 rounds of the Men’s division, the Vipers finished on top of the VT League ladder with 13 wins and two losses. Last year’s premiers, the Western Dodgers, finished in second place, with nine wins and six losses. In the elimination finals, the Lions were 10-7 winners over the Cougars, as were the Blues over the Falcons. The Lions then pushed the Vipers all the way in the first semi, with the eventual premiers winning by one touchdown to progress through to the final. In the other semi, the Dodgers were three touchdown winners over the Blues.In the final, the Dodgers got out to a strong start, leading by two touchdowns at the break, 4-2. The Dodgers were reduced to four players at one stage in the second half, with the Vipers making the most of the opportunity, hitting back to score three touchdowns to give them the lead. After another Dodgers player was sent to the sin bin, the Vipers kept the scoreboard ticking over to claim the Men’s VT League title 8-5.

Urban Meyer Says Braxton Miller Position Change Story “Jumped The Gun”: “I Haven’t Made Those Decisions Yet”

first_imgBraxton Miller wears his helmet during warm-ups at Rutgers.PISCATAWAY, NJ – OCTOBER 24: Braxton Miller #1 of the Ohio State Buckeyes during warmups before a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at High Point Solutions Stadium on October 24, 2015 in Piscataway, New Jersey. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images) braxton miller urban meyer 2012 ohio state spring gameTwitter/@StephDEpifanioSports Illustrated dropped a late news bomb on the college football world earlier, with the news that Braxton Miller will be moving to wide recevier/h-back for the coming season. The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]last_img read more

Gov’t Looking to Create Integrated Higher Education System

first_img “This integration is expected to be supported with policies and systems to support greater autonomy, greater alignment to industry and a flexible approach to funding to support the needs of the institutions, while ensuring that students are being trained in areas that are required by industry and will ultimately impact the economy,” he said. Portfolio Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, made the disclosure while addressing the opening of the Ministry’s inaugural Higher Education Summit on May 10 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston. The Government is looking to create an Integrated Higher Education System for Jamaica (IHES-J) aimed at better aligning training to industry demands. Story Highlights The Government is looking to create an Integrated Higher Education System for Jamaica (IHES-J) aimed at better aligning training to industry demands.Portfolio Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, made the disclosure while addressing the opening of the Ministry’s inaugural Higher Education Summit on May 10 at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston.“This integration is expected to be supported with policies and systems to support greater autonomy, greater alignment to industry and a flexible approach to funding to support the needs of the institutions while ensuring that students are being trained in areas that are required by industry and will ultimately impact the economy,” he said.He said that despite deliberations over the years, limited progress has been made in addressing the need for greater integration of education and training.“Our hope is that coming out of these discussions (at the summit) we will be able to agree on the needed and significant steps forward together,” he said.The two-day summit, under the theme ‘Education 4.0: Disrupting Tradition…Transforming Jamaica’, provided a platform for stakeholders to discuss and provide feedback on a number of issues critical to the development of the higher education sector.From the consultations, the Ministry will seek to establish a declaration, which will encapsulate the core principles around which the Government will be able to define and pass legislation with regards to matters of governance, quality assurance and regulation of higher education.In his address, Senator Reid highlighted the importance of higher education to the development of the country.He said that among the national imperatives are (a) to increase the percentage of eligible cohort holding the minimum of a bachelor’s degree from 15 per cent to 80 per cent; (b)  remove barriers to access; and  (c) ensure that institutions are responsive to the changing dynamics and requirements of the labour market.Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dean-Roy Bernard, in his contribution, stressed that a key objective of the deliberations is to ensure that higher education is supporting the economic growth agenda.“We hear many times of the 67 per cent of our workforce that are untrained and uncertified. This summit is to ensure that we are reducing those numbers rapidly,” he said.Over the two days, experts in education and industry made presentations on a range of topics, including ‘Higher Education, Governance and the Oversight Framework’; ‘Autonomy within the Higher Education Sector’; ‘Funding the Higher Education Sector’; and ‘Relevance, Innovation and Leadership’.Among those in attendance were members of external quality assurance body, University Council of Jamaica (UCJ); regulatory body, Jamaica Tertiary Education Commission (J-TEC); the Council of Community Colleges of Jamaica (CCCJ) and their member institutions; and student representatives.last_img read more

Once a sensation Walking Dead is another show

first_imgNEW YORK — At some point, a television sensation becomes just another show. The numbers illustrate how that’s become the case with AMC’s drama “The Walking Dead.”The zombies are taking a break at the halfway point of their ninth season, following an episode Sunday that was seen by 5.1 million people. The Nielsen company said that at a similar point last year, the midseason finale reached 7.9 million people.That’s a steep drop from the show’s high point, the seventh-season opener that reached 21 million people. AMC says a decline is natural for a show as it ages and that more people are watching on a time-delayed basis.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Rising airfares DGCA meets airlines to engage with them for appropriate action

first_imgNew Delhi: Aviation regulator DGCA will continue to monitor airfare movements on a daily basis and also engage with airline for appropriate action, a senior official said Tuesday amid concerns over rising ticket prices. With crisis-hit Jet Airways drastically curtailing its operations, there has been an adverse impact on the number of flights being operated on various routes. As concerns persist on higher air ticket prices, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Tuesday held a meeting with representatives of airlines, the official said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Airlines were advised to continue to monitor at their level and provide information to the DGCA to keep fares low as far as possible, he noted. “Airlines representative also intimated DGCA that they have removed the few higher buckets from sale and offering tickets to passengers in lower fare buckets. “DGCA will continue to monitor fare movement on daily basis and engage with airline for appropriate action,” the official added. According to him, the regulator monitors domestic airfares on a daily basis, particularly on high density routes and routes where alternate mode of transport is not available or is difficult. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Based on the monitoring process, the DGCA engages with airlines when the spurt in airfares is observed in any sector for appropriate action, he added. Earlier in the day, Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu had called for a review of issues related to struggling Jet Airways, including rising fares and flight cancellations. “Directed Secretary @MoCA_GoI to review issues related to Jet Airways, especially increasing fares, flight cancellations etc,” Prabhu said in a tweet. Besides asking Civil Aviation Secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola to take necessary steps to protect passenger rights and safety, Prabhu also called for working with all stakeholders for their well being.last_img read more

Delhi HC quashes FIR accusing AAP MLA Somnath Bharti of domestic violence

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court Tuesday quashed an FIR accusing AAP MLA Somnath Bharti of domestic violence.

Spare a thought for the poor and the needy says Sanjay Mitra

first_imgKolkata: Union Defence secretary Sanjay Mitra on Saturday urged the management students of International Management Institute (IMI), Kolkata, to contribute towards making the life of the poor and deprived in the county better. “As alumni of this prestigious school, the array of possibilities for carving out a successful career is waiting for you. By all means make money, get rich, be successful but somewhere in some corner of your mind, do keep a thought of how your achievements can translate into contributing towards making the life of the poor and needy better,” Mitra said, addressing the 7th Convocation of IMI, Kolkata, on Saturday. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaMitra further reminded the students about their role in chartering the country to its progress path in the days to come. “Our country, with its immense reserve of human and physical resources, is lacking not in the quantity and quality of these resources but in the way we have utilised them. You, with your intellect and training, can bring on board the much-needed competence and balance to the field of public administration, thus becoming a part of the nation building process. I urge you to consider this as an option in your endeavours,” he said. 125 students of the premier management institute that includes 49 girls received their PGDM at the Convocation. Arindam Banik, director of IMI Kolkata, spoke about the institute’s growing number of international collaborations with business schools in France, China and Finland. “We have received 3,500 applications in PGDM from 29 states across India which clearly proves the growing popularity of the institute,” Banik maintained.last_img read more

Asteroid makes close approach to Earth NASA

first_imgNEW YORK – NASA stated Friday a newly discovered asteroid made a close approach to Earth on September 16, which “could be back in Earth’s neighborhood in 2032”The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) stated Friday a newly discovered asteroid made a close approach to Earth on September 16, which “could be back in Earth’s neighborhood in 2032”.Published on NASA’s official website, the statement said the asteroid named 2013 TV135 was initially estimated to be about 400 meters (1,300 feet).The scientists said the asteroid made it’s closest approach as about 6.7 million kilometers (4.2 million miles), whose orbit carries it as far out as about three quarters of the distance between the Moon and the Earth.Scientists, who made observations for an orbital period that spans almost four years, stated its future orbital path was still quite uncertain. NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office noted the probability this asteroid could then impact Earth was only one in 63,000.The asteroid was discovered on October 8, 2013, by astronomers working at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in Ukraine. As of October 14, asteroid 2013 TV135 is one of 10,332 near-Earth objects that have been discovered.“To put it another way, that puts the current probability of no impact in 2032 at about 99.998 percent,” said Don Yeomans, manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. “This is a relatively new discovery. With more observations, I fully expect we will be able to significantly reduce, or rule out entirely, any impact probability for the foreseeable future.”NASA detects, tracks and characterizes asteroids and comets passing close to Earth using both ground- and space-based telescopes. The Near-Earth Object Observations Program, commonly called “Spaceguard,” discovers these objects, characterizes a subset of them and identifies their orbits to determine if any could be potentially hazardous to the planet.JPL manages the Near-Earth Object Program Office for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. JPL is a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.last_img read more
