Womens Basketball Ohio State seeks second win of the season against Indiana

Ohio State redshirt senior forward Stephanie Mavunga shoots through contact during the Buckeyes’ game against Washington on Nov. 19. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorThe No. 10 Ohio State women’s basketball team (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten) will look to expand its eight-game win streak when it takes on Indiana (8-10, 1-4 Big Ten) on the road at noon Saturday. The Buckeyes, the only undefeated team in conference play, hope to continue creating separation atop the Big Ten from No. 11 Maryland, No. 18 Iowa and No. 21 Rutgers. Buckeyes head coach Kevin McGuff hopes to lead Ohio State to a 5-0 record in the Big Ten for the first time in eight seasons.The Buckeyes’ last meeting against the Hoosiers came Dec. 31, when senior guard Kelsey Mitchell helped lead the team to a 85-70 victory with 22 points. Ohio State jumped out to an early 32-13 lead after the first quarter and continued adding to the advantage before Indiana outscored its opponent 21-12 in the fourth quarter after the game was out of hand.The Hoosiers were limited to just 33 percent shooting from the field and turned the ball over 15 times.Though the Hoosiers have struggled this season, it has not been for a lack of production out of their two seniors, guard Tyra Buss and forward Amanda Cahill. Buss leads the team with 20.4 points per game, while Cahill leads in rebounds with 8.1 per game and is second in points per game with 13.7.“[Buss and Cahill are] so good, I don’t think we’re going to just not let them do anything,” McGuff said. “Just make them earn everything they get and try to limit them a little bit, but they’re going to score, they’re going to play well. We can’t let them go crazy because they’re capable of winning games by themselves, I think they’re that good.”Records don’t necessarily paint the whole picture, and that is the case with the Hoosiers, who have lost six of their last eight games. Of the Hoosiers’ ten losses, five have been by eight points or less. This will be the first opponent Ohio State plays twice this season.“We’re always focused, I feel like every time we show up in the gym we’re going to take their teams best shot, it’s just by virtue of who we are and kind of were we finished last year and what the expectations are for our team,” McGuff said “I know [Indiana] is going to play really well, they’re going to play hard, they’re going to be extremely prepared.”Ohio State forward and Indiana native Stephanie Mavunga said she will not let the emotions of returning to her home state affect her play.“The goals never change, you still want to get the win, you still wanna play hard, play smart, play together and just have fun out there,” Mavunga said.A Buckeye win against the Hoosiers will give them a 5-0 record for the ninth time in school history. read more

HANDBALL TALKS Who hid Budapest on the road to Croatia

TEXT: ZIKA BOGDANOVIC“My opinion is that Men’s and Women’s handball can be called “same sport” only in terms of size of the playing court”, said legendary player and Slovenian NT coach, Veselin Vujovic, a few weeks ago at handball conference in Belgrade during the celebration of 10th birthday of are lot of same or similar comments when handball people across the globe start talking about women’s handball called also “damen handball” as something not equal with the game of “14 strong warriors”.However, everyone can talk whatever they won’t about similarities and differences of boys and girls in handball. Even to underestimate efforts, technical or tactical  developments of female handball stars, investments in the clubs and number of the European teams who can be called “proffessional”. Everyone, but not people responsible to organize, develop and promote women’s handball across the globe.There are only two days in the whole year, when women’s handball has a clear chance to overcome popularity of men’s handball. One is the final of the major events – like World or European championship. The second one is the final of the Women’s EHF Champions League as premium product in our sport organized by European Handball Federation – the event which definitely raise marketing potential of the girls in our sport.Who decided to make Final4 in Budapest in time of important battles in qualifications for the Men’s EHF EURO 2018 in Croatia? Who is responsible for hiding the best of women’s handball from thousands of fans, players, journalists, who were linked with their national teams during the previous weekend? Who made such a huge mistake in making schedule of the season?Mistake that should never happen to handball – sport who has only few moments during the year to overcome size of loyal, but not too big handball family – mostly based in Europe. ← Previous Story Dujshebaev to resign – Polish president Krasnicki can’t confirm it Next Story → Uroš Vilovski scores first goal for Hungary read more

Over nine million people in Syria need outside help to survive

first_imgTHE UNITED NATIONS warned today of a major rise in homeless numbers in Syria, and called for greater UN Security Council pressure to seek access to the war-stricken nation.UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos told the council that 9.3 million people now need outside help to survive, up from 6.8 million in September, and 6.5 million are now homeless inside the country, up from 4.25 million.The United Nations estimates more than 2.2 million people have fled to neighboring countries and the figure will be above three million by the end of the year.With neighbouring countries such as Jordan warning that they cannot cope with the influx, Amos appealed to the council for its “help and influence” to press for greater access to give assistance inside Syria.Food and medicineAmos said the council “should put its full political weight with both the regime and the opposition parties” to ensure that previous calls for access are carried out, Britain’s UN ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said after Amos gave a private briefing to the council.The humanitarian chief handed the council a letter which set out a call for greater pressure to back a statement agreed by the Security Council on 2 October calling on the government and opposition rebels to make it easier to provide food and medicines, diplomats said.Amos told the council that the Syria crisis “continues to deteriorate rapidly and inexorably,” said her spokeswoman Amanda Pitt.She “continues to press the council for their help and influence over those parties who can ensure the protection of civilians and civilian facilities; the safe passage of medical personnel and supplies; the safe and unhindered delivery of humanitarian assistance.”The 15-nation council is divided over the 32-month-old war which the UN says has left well over 100,000 dead.ResolutionWith Russia backing President Bashar al-Assad and western nations supporting the opposition rebels, the council has passed only one resolution on the conflict – one which ordered the destruction of Assad’s chemical weapons attack.Russia’s UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters he was not convinced that a binding resolution on the humanitarian crisis would work. He said “all countries should work on all sides” to improve access.Jordan and Lebanon have both appealed for greater international assistance to cope with growing numbers crossing the border.Jordan’s King Abdullah II warned on Sunday that his country may take special measures if action is not taken over the refugees.“Jordan currently hosts around 600,000 Syrian refugees – an issue that depletes our already limited resources and puts enormous pressure on our infrastructure,” the king said in a speech to parliament.“If the international community does not move quickly to help us shoulder the burdens of the Syrian crisis… Jordan is able to take measures to protect the interests of our people and country,” he said without elaborating.Refugee campThe UN refugee agency says there are 541,025 registered Syrian refugees in Jordan, including more than 100,000 in a camp at Zaatari near the border with Syria.The UN says there are more than 800,000 Syrian refugees registered in Lebanon. The government says there are more than 1.2 million.Jordan and Lebanon say the influx has put pressure on power and water supplies, health and education facilities and heightened social tensions as refugees battle locals for scarce jobs.- © AFP 2013.Read: Israeli warplanes carry out Syrian airstrike>Column: “Being caught with patients is like being caught with a weapon”>last_img read more

Western Digital acquires Hitachis hard drive business

first_imgThe number of hard drive manufacturers got a little bit smaller today as Hitachi has agreed to sell its storage business to the world’s second largest hard drive manufacturer and competitor Western Digital.Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST) will become a part of Western Digital’s business. In return Western Digital is paying $3.5 billion in cash and offering Hitachi 25 million common shares worth $750 million, therefore valuing the HGST business at $4.25 billion.Regulatory approval is still required for the deal to be finalized, but as far as the two companies are concerned everything is settled and the transaction will complete in the third quarter of this year. It will also mean the Hitachi name will no longer be seen as branding on hard drives. Western Digital has stated it will rename the company as part of its own brand.HGST’s headquarters in Irvine, California will remain with their current president Steve Milligan becoming president of Western Digital and reporting to existing CEO John Coyne. The amount of shares being transferred as part of the deal also sees Hitachi take a 10% share in the WD going forward.Western Digital made the acquisition to allow for an expansion of its business. Coyne has stated that the HGST acquisition benefits their research and development, innovation capabilities, increases the range of products they can offer, and the size of the market they can cater to.With the acquisition Western Digital has definitely become a larger company giving it more room to move on pricing and therefore profit based on increased production capabilities. It will also allow it to compete with the largest hard drive manufacturer in the world, Seagate, on more even terms in the future.Read more at the Western Digital press releaselast_img read more

Airport concession ruling imminent

first_imgThe Greek Parliament is expected to approve the concession contracts of 14 regional airports set to be operated and upgraded by the Fraport-led consortium, following the Orthodox Christian Easter weekend.According to a report in Kathimerini, the draft law is almost ready and expected to include two concession contracts, each referring to seven airports, in relation to the the tender that was proclaimed by state privatisation fund TAIPED.To have reached such an advanced level, the Greek government is believed to have secured the approval of the country’s Competition Commission, in addition to the opinion of European Commission competition authorities that the contracts do not constitute a state subsidy.With people of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and other civil servants preventing Fraport officials from entering the airports, the biggest obstacles reported at the terminals of Thessaloniki and Cephalonia airports, passing of the law is expected to ease pressure. Questions have emerged, as to who is in fact backing those preventing the entry of Fraport officials to the Makedonia Airport.While in Cephalonia’s case, protesters appear to have been encouraged by a so-called referendum carried out by the head of the Ionian Islands’ Regional Authority on the concession of the airports. Though an online poll showed 75 per cent of voters were against the concession, it was noted than only 3 per cent of the region’s 200,000 registered voters took part.

Clinton Stick with Obama

first_imgHere’s the full text to former President Bill Clinton’s speech to nominate Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention in 2012.CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In an impassioned speech that rocked the Democratic National Convention, former President Bill Clinton proclaimed Wednesday night, “I know we’re coming back” from the worst economic mess in generations and appealed to hard-pressed Americans to stick with Barack Obama for a second term in the White House.Obama strode onstage as Clinton concluded his speech. The 42nd president bowed, and was pulled into an embrace by the 44th as thousands of delegates jammed into the convention hall roared their approval.Clinton, conceding that many struggling in a slow-recovery economy don’t yet feel improvement, said circumstances are indeed getting better, “and if you’ll renew the president’s contract you will feel it.” To more cheers, he said of Obama, “I want to nominate a man who is cool on the outside but who burns for America on the inside.”last_img read more

Samsung to Put Spotlight on Augmented Reality at This Weeks Developer Conference

first_imgBut aside from such eye candy, Samsung is also going to use the event to highlight more cutting-edge AR developments. One of them is Project Whare, an AR cloud initiative the company quietly has been working on out of its Samsung Next incubator.Whare hasn’t been publicly announced yet; a Samsung spokesperson said that it would get a a “soft roll-out” at the conference, adding that it wanted to use the event to “uncover early market signals and feedback from potential audiences and industries.” The project has been described in job listings as a set of “cross platform developer services that will power multi-user, shared AR experiences and applications at scale” meant to “enable a new generation of augmented reality applications.”“This infrastructure will support all developers in the AR community with a shared global management platform for AR assets,” according to one such job listing.Samsung isn’t the only company working on such an AR cloud, with game developers like Niantic, tech giants like Google, AR headset manufacturers like Magic Leap and a number of smaller startups all working on the same basic idea: To take AR beyond simple phone camera filters, developers need to be able to make sense of the real world, store persistent digital information related to that world, and make it available to multiple users at the same time.AR cloud technologies like Project Whare help developers with to create such persistent AR experiences for phone-based apps, but Samsung is clearly already thinking beyond the phone.Samsung’s director of XR developer relations Farsh Fallah suggested during an appearance at the Virtual Reality Strategy conference in San Francisco last month that the company may show off a full-blown AR headset at the event. It’s unclear whether Samsung has any plans to actually turn this into a product aimed at consumers, but anything shown at the conference is likely to be a prototype.Samsung’s new focus on AR comes as the company moves its virtual reality efforts from phone-based technology to high-end headsets. The company released one of the industry’s very first mobile VR headsets, the Gear VR, in late 2014. It followed up with a number of iterations, and disclosed in early 2017 that it had sold over 5 million units of the device. Gear VR received its last major update in March of 2017.

The company is expected to unveil an AR Cloud service dubbed Project Whare, and may even preview a dedicated AR headset.The Korean consumer electronics giant is holding its annual developer conference in San Francisco this Wednesday and Thursday, where it will focus on voice and artificial intelligence. Samsung even invited Spike Jonze, the director of everyone’s favorite dystopian AI film “Her,” to make its own fledging voice efforts look cool.But aside from voice, Samsung is also going to shine a spotlight on another nascent technology: augmented reality (AR). The conference’s schedule lists a total of six sessions related to the subject, with one promising attendees help to become “a superstar AR developer.”center_img Not one but two sessions go into details about how to create AR emoji for Samsung’s handsets, something that Disney done for some of its most popular characters. The company since partnered with Samsung on a high-end VR headset powered by an external PC, dubbed the Samsung Odyssey. An updated version of this headset was released last month, making it less likely that we will see significant VR hardware news at the event.However, VR won’t be completely absent from Samsung’s developer conference: Italian VR game studio Symmetrical revealed on Twitter Monday that it will show off its VR horror game “Gates of Nowhere: Inferno” with an arena-style multi-player setup.last_img read more


first_imgArt Indus brings to the IAF two important and serious of practitioners of art – the first is the legendary sculptor and mentor Rajinder Tiku and the second is Neeraj Bakshi. Both artists are deeply introspective and contemplative individuals who have been practicing for at least four decades. Tiku is both sculptor and thinker and he plays with the idea of metaphors in the medium of materiality. According to him art needs to be understood and internalised as an attitude that helps us to imbibe tradition and effort to transcend it to build a new psychological makeup. When he had his show at Threshold in Delhi he said: “Looking at this phenomenon from the point of view of human perception also, one understands that a society’s grasp of its part becomes a source of creativity in the present. It stimulates all forms of contemporary expression, allowing the meaning to seep through images, shapes and a plethora of the other cultural activities. While looking at this phenomenon of past and present as a continuum, where lines of distinction between historical memories and personal experiences blur (if not disappear), we realise an eternal source which energises us to flow on to be a part and parcel of the same.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfBased broadly on this understanding, Tiku has been trying to bring out a tangible form, the seemingly intangible aspect of the silent and sacred embedded in our civilizational life and tradition – you can see this message in his works that translate the idea of the shrine. Inspired by shapes of objects ranging from mundane ones located in our immediate surroundings, to the visual grandeur of monuments located in the trajectory of the timelessness, Tiku’s brilliance lies in his ability to create in stone images that have been perceived from a quantum of images and symbols that usher technical, intellectual and philosophical human endeavours into realm of the universal. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveNeeraj Bakshi’s hand is one of stealth and serene minimalism. Travel and experience have shaped his understanding – a few years ago Bakshi travelled to Africa and toured the forests in the east of the continent. His entire perspective changed. This was reflected in his work, and the watercolours breathed both beauty and substance in the idea of living. They reflect his concern with humans and the surroundings they share. These watercolours at Art Indus are fresh and have a transparency that makes them look as if they radiate a soft light. His figures mirror a definite international influence, as he spends time soaking rich artistic and architectural heritage of the places he visits. While the works look gentle there is also great pain, his works are associated with ritual iconography, but they are put together in the context of the everyday living. Bakshi buttresses deep environmental concerns with a sensitive balance of line and colour, which gives his work the ambience of a lighter prism. The inbuilt tenor of pathos and pain both add to the realm of solitary creation within his own orbit of compositional clarity.(The above mentioned story is part of the series on India Art Fair 2018, which will be carried till the fair ends.)last_img read more
