Mens basketball The only change after Ohio States win over Wisconsin confidence

Ohio State junior forward Jae’Sean Tate converts a layup as he was fouled in the first half against Wisconsin on Feb. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 83-73. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Assistant Sports DirectorThe will or drive of a team is rooted in self belief. Without a belief or a vision, a team cannot achieve its goals.For a while, the Ohio State men’s basketball team didn’t have a vision, it didn’t have a moment that could spring a successful run as the season grows nye. Well, now OSU has both.The Buckeyes handily defeated the 16th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers at home Thursday night, 83-73, in their most complete game this season. Four players were in double figures, the bench scored 32 points and as a team, OSU outrebounded the Badgers by 13 and shot 63 percent (10-for-16) from 3-point range.All of that happened against the fourth best defense in the country.The players — sophomore guard C.J. Jackson in particular, who had a career-high 18 points Thursday — had been saying throughout a mentally taxing conference season that they believed there run of consecutive wins was just around the corner. Wisconsin might be the start of that, but that doesn’t necessarily mean OSU’s predicament has changed. The Buckeyes will likely still need to win the Big Ten tournament to make the NCAA Tournament, but at the very least, OSU finally has proof it can win games against top competition.“I feel like everybody was on the same page (on Thursday). We played hard. It seemed like we couldn’t miss,” junior forward Jae’Sean Tate said. “If we play like this the rest of the time and in the Big Ten tournament, I feel like we can win.”That type of language hadn’t been heard since the beginning of the season when winning the conference was seen as an attainable goal. Yes, the Buckeyes said things like, “There’s still a long way to go,” and “Anything can happen” after losses, but maybe what OSU needed was the reality of winning a game that many didn’t believe it had a prayer in.So it begs the question, why can’t OSU always play like this?“I wish we could (always play like this) and for now on I hope we can,” Tate said. “We just got to build from it.”The game was equally important for OSU coach Thad Matta, who has been dealt an unprecedented amount of criticism this year. The 13-year OSU coach was already the most winningest coach in school history and became the most tenured coach in school history on Thursday night.He has not been one to ever focus, or truly care, about what outsiders say, but there’s no denying that critics will think twice about scolding the 13-year OSU coach after the Wisconsin win.“I’m sure there’s a lot of people that wouldn’t be pissed off if I didn’t come back (tomorrow),” Matta said. “But I say that from a standpoint of I guess that’s a tremendous feat, but I kind of like the most wins more than the most games to be honest with you.”While nothing on the winning side has come naturally to the Buckeyes this season, they had the answers on Thursday night. Each answer paved the path to success. There remains a long way to go for them, but the Buckeyes saw what their best looks like and that could be a motivator with two games remaining before the conference tournament.“We haven’t seen it a whole lot,” Matta said. “Everybody sort of did there part. When you’re making shots, it probably helps your cause … I hope these guys got a good taste of what it feels like to win a game.” read more

Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister Underscores Need for GB Economy to be Strong

first_img— Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 26, 2017 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon. K. Peter Turnquest says the government is convinced that the health and strength of Grand Bahama’s economy is vital to the nation’s overall growth and development.“I can’t stress that enough because people don’t necessarily understand how important Grand Bahama is to the entire health of this country, because it is still the second largest economy in the country, never mind that Abaco is gaining on our heels every day and other islands like Exuma are holding their own,” added Minister Turnquest, who was the guest speaker at the 12th Annual Northern Conference of The Bahamas Association of Compliance Officers, which was held at Pelican Bay Resort, October 25, 2017.“If (Grand Bahama’s economy) fails, it will cause enormous pressure on the rest of the country,” added Minister Turnquest.   “So, I can’t understate how important it is for us to get Grand Bahama right.”In his address to Compliance Officers, Minister Turnquest said his government feels it has an obligation to do what it can to ensure that Grand Bahama succeeds.   He said that is just the first step in delivering on the commitments the government has made to the people of Grand Bahama and for the people of The Bahamas.“The economic transformation of Grand Bahama requires growth,” said Minister Thompson.   “According to the IMF World outlook, The Bahamas is forecasted to grow by 1.8 percent in 2017 and by 2.5 percent in 2018.   However, that growth will not happen and be sustained if the government does not do its part to facilitate economic transformation.“And again, getting Grand Bahama’s economy going is a key, critical component to achieving those goals. In fact, the country cannot progress without undertaking reforms that lead to better business conditions.   These reforms are critical to achieve better living standards, moderate inflation, low inflationary concerns and high growth rates.”The Finance Minister noted that The Bahamas fell in its rankings on the “ease of doing business” ladder since last year and to a large extent that fall was not because of something the Bahamian government did, but rather what they did not do.“In other words, if we continue to stand still, thinking that we are doing okay, we are going to fall further and further behind because the rest of the world is moving forward,” Minister Thompson pointed out.   “For example, Jamaica has made tremendous strides in its utilization of technology in order to facilitate and make the ease of doing business much better. And they have leap-frogged ahead of us.“We have an obligation and we have a commitment to make the improvements, to make the changes that we need to make in order to ensure that we keep pace, at a minimum. But I challenge my people every day to make a quantum leap to ensure that we get ahead.”By: Andrew Coakley (BIS)OPENS BACO CONFERENCE – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Hon. K.

Highprofile fugitives Cautious CBI issues lookout notice for Chanda Kochhar

first_img UK court orders extradition of Vijay Mallya Apparently stung by high profile flight from the country of several economic offenders, premier crime investigative agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has issued a lookout circular (LOC) against top banker Chanda Kochhar, who is being probed over alleged fraud during her tenure as the chief executive officer and managing director of ICICI Bank.Apart from Chanda Kochhar, the lookout notices also include her husband Deepak Kochhar, and Videocon Group’s Venugopal Dhoot. The development comes weeks after Enforcement Directorate (ED) registered a criminal case against them for alleged money laundering, according to media reports.The CBI and the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had taken opposition flak over the flight aboard of several top businessmen including liquor baron Vijay Mallya and diamond merchants Mehul Choksi and Nirav Modi. Facing the general election in a matter of weeks, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government can ill-afford to face another embarrassing flight in a high profile economic offence investigation.The CBI last year issued lookout circulars at all airports against Deepak Kochhar and Dhoot last year. The Economics Times reports this is the first time LOC has been issued against Chanda Kochhar.”LOCs were filed after the FIR and are mandatory in cases where such economic offences are alleged. In recent times, keeping an eye on travel plans is a top concern for regulators,” the newspaper quoted an official as saying.ED registered a criminal case for alleged money laundering against the Kochhars, Dhoot, and others, to probe alleged irregularities and corrupt practices in sanctioning a Rs 1,875-crore loan to the corporate group.ED filed an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, taking into account a CBI complaint filed last month. An ECIR is the ED’s equivalent of a police first information report (FIR). Finance Minister Arun Jaitley with Chanda Kochhar, managing director and chief executive officer of ICICI Bank at the inauguration of 100 Digital Villages in New Delhi on May 2, 2017.IANSThe agency is probing the possibility of amassing tainted assets from any kickbacks the loan deal might have generated. The ED is expected to summon the accused named in the ECIR soon, according to reports.Allegations of conflict of interest against the CEO first arose in October 2016 following the ICICI Bank’s sanctioning of a loan to the Videocon Group. The allegation was that though Kochhar’s husband had alleged beneficial business dealings with Videocon managing director Venugopal Dhoot, yet the bank CEO continued to function on the credit committee that sanctioned the loan in 2012.An ICICI Bank inquiry found that Kochhar violated the bank’s code of conduct and its board decided to treat her October resignation – tendered while she was on leave – as a termination. Kochhar said she was “utterly disappointed, hurt and shocked” by the decision.

Son Allegedly Shoots Own Father at Sandtown Winchester Funeral

first_imgAntonio Addison allegedly shot his father while attending his brother’s funeral. (Baltimore Police Department)What was meant to be a celebration of life for Antonio Addison, 22 , who was gunned down last month on the streets of West Baltimore, turned into almost the same scene, however, this time it was inside of a church. On Tuesday, family and friends gathered at the New Song Worship & Arts Center in Sandtown-Winchester for a repast after the funeral service where the tradition ended with a 47 year old man being shot in the stomach. The suspect is his own son, 26-year-old Antonio Addison of the 1600 Block of Walterswood Road in Baltimore. The two brothers share the same first and last names.“They got into some sort of argument at this repast over what was said or how it was said at the funeral, and the suspect in this case decided to pull out a gun that he bought with him to this event and shot his own father,” said T.J. Smith, Baltimore Police public information Officer, at a news conference.According to witnesses, the father and the son argued over an omission in the obituary written by a family member, police said. The brother’s name was not in the obituary said Charles Addison, the grandfather. “The place was full of children. They ran out the back and I ran out the front.”The 47-year-old father is expected to survive and his 26 year old son was taken into custody.The shooting happened inside of the church’s lobby, located at Gold and North Calhoun Street said police. Hordes of officers, detectives, along with the police commissioner and deputy commissioner, took over the church as those who attended the service, dressed in white attire, some with “R.I.P” and “Gone but not forgotten” T-Shirts on, watched from the street.Later, family members carried out the food which was supposed to be eaten at a celebration of Addison’s life.Addison was killed not to far from New Song on May 25. He was shot several times and he was found inside of a home just before 6 p.m.“I really can’t even describe how unnecessary and senseless this situation is,” Smith said. “There’s still food on the table inside.”Next door to the church, William Pinderhughes Elementary/Middle School was locked down, keeping the children a half-hour after dismissal said administrators.Sadly, this is not the first time that gun violence has interrupted a home going service. Virginia McGhee, 34, was shot and killed in 2009 at the viewing for her boyfriend who was shot and killed the week before. This shooting was at a funeral home about a half-mile from Tuesday’s church shooting. In 2008, two people were shot while attending the viewing of a man who had been killed in a triple shooting. In 2001, a man attending the funeral for his murdered brother was shot while he was leaving the service.“Fortunately, no one else was injured as a result of this, and again, it’s just that senseless that we talk about,” Smith stated.In the aftermath, the church door was locked and signs that Bible Study had been canceled had been taped to the front door.Pastor Louis Wilson of New Song Worship & Arts Center was not available for comment.last_img read more

Researchers study kinematics of the supernova remnant G109110

first_img(Phys.org)—A team of astronomers from Mexico has lately conducted a kinematics study of a supernova remnant in the Milky Way galaxy known as G109.1-1.0 (or CTB 109). The new research reveals crucial insights into basic properties of this remnant. The findings were presented Sept. 23 in a paper published on the arXiv preprint repository. Search for stellar survivor of a supernova explosion Supernova remnants (SNRs) are diffuse, expanding structures resulting from a supernova explosion. SNRs contain ejected material expanding from the explosion and other interstellar material that has been swept up by the passage of the shock wave from the exploded star. Studies of supernova remnants are important for astronomers as they play a key role in the evolution of galaxies, dispersing the heavy elements made in the supernova explosion into the interstellar medium (ISM) and providing the energy needed for heating up the ISM. SNRs are also believed to be responsible for the acceleration of galactic cosmic rays.G109.1-1.0 is one such remnant located in the Milky Way’s Perseus arm. Previous observations of this SNR revealed that it has a semicircular shell-type morphology. However, the astronomers have not yet definitely determined basic properties of this remnant, such as its distance, age and the amount of energy deposited in the interstellar medium in result of the explosion. Various studies produced significant discrepancies in the results.Recently, a team of researchers led by Mónica Sánchez-Cruces of the National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico City has studied the kinematics of G109.1-1.0, which allowed them to diminish the uncertainties presented in previous papers. Their research is based on observations carried out in June 2015 with the use of a scanning Fabry-Perot interferometer known as PUMA. The instrument is installed on the 2.1 m telescope at the National Astronomical Observatory in Sierra de San Pedro Mártir, Mexico.”We obtained a set of direct images in Hα and [SII]λλ6717,6731 Å using the PUMA focal reducer without the Fabry-Perot interferometer in the instrument optical axis. The exposure time of each of the direct images was 120 s. We also obtained [SII]λλ6717,6731 Å Fabry-Perot data cubes of two regions of the SNR CTB 109,” the paper reads.By analyzing the new images, the astronomers found that the distance to G109.1-1.0 is about 10,100 light years, which is consistent with one study published in 2012. When it comes to the age of this remnant, the researchers calculated it to be between 9,000 and 9,200 years.Furthermore, the authors estimated the initial energy deposited in the interstellar medium by the supernova explosion. According to the research, this value lies between 180 and 520 quindecillion erg.The scientists concluded that the remnant’s relatively young age and the amount of energy deposited in the ISM, indicate that G109.1-1.0 contains simple pulsars. “The age is of thousands of years and the (E0) is rather typical of SNRs containing simple pulsars,” the authors wrote in the paper.Besides determining these basic parameters, the team also found that the remnant’s systemic velocity is approximately –50 km/s, while its expansion velocity equals some 230 km/s.

Space constraint delaying work on foot overbridges Sovan

first_imgKolkata: Mayor Sovan Chatterjee said on Monday that space constraint has delayed the construction of foot overbridges in the city, which have been planned to curb accidents.Responding to a poser from BJP councillor Tishta Biswas (Das) of ward 86, regarding stoppage of work in a couple of foot overbridges on Gariahat Road and in front of Ballygunge Siksha Sadan at the monthly session of KMC, Chatterjee said, “The foot overbridges that we have proposed to construct will have escalators, along with other modern amenities to facilitate the movement of pedestrians. This requires a reasonable amount of space.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”We are in constant touch with Kolkata Police and are holding meetings on a regular basis to overcome this paucity of space, which has resulted in delay of work. We are hopeful that things will be sorted out soon,” Chatterjee said.It may be mentioned that KMC is facing problems with space constraints not only at Gariahat Road and Ballygunge Siksha Sadan, but also at Exide crossing. The Mayor said that KMC and Kolkata Police have to ensure that construction of these foot overbridges causes no hindrance to the smooth flow of traffic in the city. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedIt may be mentioned that KMC has earmarked some spots in the city for construction of these foot bridges under PPP mode, for the safety of pedestrians. The places include – Deshapriya Park, Ballygunge Siksha Sadan, Gariahat Road, South City, Exide Crossing, Turf View Road and Alipore Zoological Gardens. The spots were selected on the basis of their proximity to frequent road accidents.However, KMC and Kolkata Police are worried that the foot overbridges existing in the city are severely underutilised. “Despite the presence of elevators in some of these FOBs, people hardly use them. So we have plans to put up guard rails on the divider to make people use them,” an official in KP’s traffic wing said.The civic body is also planning to take a tough stand to make pedestrians use the FOBs. “We will urge KP to impose fine to the extent of Rs 2,000, to curb this practice,” a senior KMC official said.last_img read more

PCB rules out immediate return of tainted duo

first_imgThe Pakistan Cricket Board has ruled out an immediate first-class return for the tainted duo of Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif, saying that they would have to attend further anti-corruption rehabilitation programs to regain the PCB’s trust.Najam Sethi, Chairman of the PCB’s influential executive committee, said the Board had planned special rehabilitation programs for the two players whose spot-fixing bans expire on September 1, allowing them to return to cricket. Sethi revealed that there were lots of players including some members of the Pakistan team, who were not happy that Butt, Asif or Mohammad Aamir should be rehabilitated back to top cricket. “I don’t think they have to go into first class cricket straightaway when the ban ends. They will have to attend the rehabilitation program of the PCB for two to three months,” Sethi said on Geo Super channel. “We had written to the ICC seeking clarification on some points and they have in reply left it to the PCB to complete the rehabilitation process of these players.” Also Read – A league of his own!Asked about the players who were not happy to see the tainted trio coming back, Sethi declined to take names but said even former Test captain Ramiz Raja had mentioned this in a recent column. “Obviously we have to talk to these players, convince them and give them time to develop trust once again in the players coming back. The PCB itself needs to be very sure that they wouldn’t repeat the past because what happened in 2010 in England was very embarrassing and damaging for Pakistan cricket,” Sethi said.  Also Read – Domingo named new Bangladesh cricket coachPCB to launch logo of long-awaited PSL next monthThe Pakistan Cricket Board said it would launch the official logo of its much-delayed Twenty20 Super League on September 19. A top official, however, said a decision on the venue for hosting the five-team franchise tournament would be taken in two weeks time.“We have two options either hold the PSL as planned in February in Doha or wait until April and host it in Dubai and other venues in the UAE,” he said. He said a recent visit to Dubai to meet the officials there to discuss the use of venues had failed to yield results since in February the Masters championship was being held in Dubai. “They have given us the option of hosting it in April. Our delegation also went to Qatar where their national Olympic committee and cricket association were very welcoming and keen to host the PSL.“Qatar is staging major international events now but cricket has remained out of their calendar but now they want cricket as well and their officials assured us they would offer all cooperation and help to make the PSL a big success in Qatar,” the official said. “Their Olympic committee and cricket association also told us they have got government permission to have the PSL with us,” he said. The PCB official also ruled out any chances of the PSL being put off for a third time in three years’ time.last_img read more
