Syracuse ready to bounce back from 3-game losing streak

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Leonid Yelin has already seen his team’s resilience once.The Syracuse head coach saw his team drop the first set in last Saturday’s opening match against Bryant University at the Colgate Classic. In a 25-24 hole in the second set, SU responded. Outside hitter Samantha Clarey finished with a kill and an ace to put the set away.During a three-win weekend, it was an additional positive that Yelin took away from the tournament. And it’s an element the Orange will need to count on in the coming weeks.“Until they’re losing, everything is OK,” Yelin said. “After losses, they have to work that much harder. They need to see what the other teams were doing that made them better.”After Syracuse’s success at the Colgate Classic, a winless weekend leaves the team at 3-3 heading into its game against Nebraska-Omaha at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Yelin is trying to build a winning program out of Syracuse, one that competes nationally every year. And the first-year head coach said he hopes to see his team put its resilience to the test and respond to adversity moving forward.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange failed to win a set in all three of the matches at the Bluejay Invitational last weekend against tougher competition than it faced at Colgate.“It’s definitely a lot tougher,” said defensive specialist Melina Violas. “They’re bigger girls, they can hit a lot harder.”And tougher competition brings higher expectations for Yelin. He believes his team can work harder and play better every time it practices or competes. Coming from a program in Louisville that made 14 NCAA tournaments in his 15-year tenure, Yelin holds remarkably high standards for his players.As Yelin attempts to change the culture of a program that has yet to reach an NCAA tournament, he looks for players to learn from losses and push themselves even more.“It takes a lot of time to build a new culture,” Yelin said. “And it’s everything – how you dress, how you work, how you represent yourself. Every little thing matters.”Yelin will get a good read on his team’s character and resilience in the next few matches.No matter how the players respond, Yelin will be looking for more improvement. It takes something spectacular for his players to impress him. Yelin said nothing impressed him about the three wins in the opening weekend.As one of Yelin’s former players at Louisville, Syracuse assistant coach Stephanie Cantway saw how difficult it was for Yelin to be completely satisfied with his team.Wins alone simply won’t do it.“It takes a lot to impress him,” Cantway said.Yelin said the process to improve and change the culture at Syracuse will be long and tedious. It requires a full commitment from each player. He said improvements in attitude and work ethic are necessary, and they should change even more with every roadblock in the season.This 0-3 weekend at the Bluejay Invitational is one of those roadblocks the Orange will have to overcome.Yelin said he knows that Syracuse may not become a top-notch program in the immediate future. But he’s determined that each player fully commits to the learning process and won’t accept anything less than a winning program.Right now, SU is a .500 team.To Yelin, that’s far from good enough. The Orange needs to rebound from a disappointing weekend. It’s all a part of Yelin’s process to build a consistent winner.“It’s a lot of learning. It’s going to be an up-and-down season, but as long as they continue to work and improve themselves, I think we are on the right track,” Yelin said. “Every day, the expectation has to be higher because we will not accept not to be good.” Comments Published on September 4, 2012 at 1:13 am Contact Jacob: jspramuk@syr.edulast_img read more

Betsson rebrands ‘Oranje & Kroon’ Dutch online casino properties

first_img Submit Share Betsson outrides pandemic challenges as regulatory dramas loom July 21, 2020 GiG lauds its ‘B2B makeover’ delivering Q2 growth August 11, 2020 Related Articles StumbleUpon Netherlands Remote Gambling Act submitted for EC review July 15, 2020 Stockholm-listed Betsson AB has confirmed that it will rebrand its two Dutch-facing online casino properties of Oranje Casino and Kroon Casino.Moving forward, Kroon Casino will operate under its new identity of ‘Casino Winner’, whilst Oranje Casino will be rebranded to ‘Loyal Casino’.Betsson has operated both online casinos since 2014, forming part of its €40 million acquisition of Oranje and Kroon Maltese operating companies, in a strategic move by Betsson governance to acquire recognised Dutch gambling assets.Last August, the Netherlands Gaming Authority – Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) sanctioned a €300,000 fine to Betsson Dutch market subsidiary Corona Ltd.The KSA charged Corona, operating company of Oranje and Kroon casinos of offering/promoted unlicensed gambling services to Dutch consumers.Betsson governance has appealed the fine, stating that Corona has operated Oranje and Kroon properties under the guidance of  EU compliant applicable laws, acting in the absence of Dutch regulations for online gambling.This February the Netherlands Senate approved the passing of the ‘Remote Gambling Act’, a mandate which will allow the KSA to begin its Dutch licensing window.However, since the approval ‘Remote Gambling Act’, the KSA has bolstered strengthened its stance against foreign remote operators.Last March, stating that it would not tolerate ‘cowboys’, the KSA increased its minimum operator fines from €150,000 to €200,000.Furthermore, issuing a stern warning to European betting leadership, the KSA detailed that it could move to suspend ‘rogue operators’ from applying for Netherlands licenses for a period of two years, should they continue to target Dutch consumers.

Paul George ‘wanted to go home’ to play for Lakers; his hometown hopes he still does

first_img Heisler: Lakers dream of LeBron James, even a middle-aged one “My reaction was surprised and also excited for him that he gets to play with Russ (Russell Westbrook),” said George’s high school teammate Olando Miller, “but it sucked he didn’t come to L.A.”George has maintained his All-Star play alongside Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony in Oklahoma City, averaging 20.6 points and 5.5 rebounds, helping the surging Thunder to a 20-17 record and fifth place in the Western Conference.He is widely expected to exercise his player option this summer, however, with the Lakers expected to be his most aggressive suitor, even after the NBA fined the franchise $500,000 for tampering in August.The Thunder, of course, will fight to keep the four-time All-Star. Westbrook was long expected to consider the Lakers in free agency, too, but in September he signed a $205 million contract extension that will keep him with the Thunder through 2023.The Hawthorne native and former UCLA star said the Thunder will not need to make a sales pitch to keep George.“Sales pitch is going to be when we win the championship,” Westbrook said. “Beat that pitch.”George can’t duck questions about the Lakers, however, and he doesn’t really seem to mind them. Before leaving Oklahoma City on Tuesday, he told local reporters that the deal that landed him in the Sooner State was a win-win, but that he did not regret that his desire to play for the Lakers became public.“All that was said was a destination I would have loved to go to,” he said. “There wasn’t a gun pointed to the head, ‘Hey, send me here.’ I just stated somewhere I wanted to go play. You ask 80, 70 percent of guys in the league if they would love to go back home and play for their city, play for their home.”On Wednesday, George reiterated those sentiments while speaking glowingly about playing in front of friends and family at Staples Center, something that harkens back to his childhood.“This has just been a tradition within the household,” he said, “to watch Laker games.”Following the Thunder’s shootaround at UCLA on Wednesday, George called the league’s tampering investigation of the Lakers “kind of comical,” and said it was based on his relationship with assistant coach Brian Shaw.“The only thing me and B-Shaw ever spoke about was fishing,” George said, “and challenge each other on fishing trips. B-Shaw has way, way, way better class than to try to recruit me.”When the league announced the fine on Aug. 31, it singled out communication by Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka with George’s agent Aaron Mintz that the league determined “constituted a prohibited expression of interest in (George) while he was under contract.”ESPN reported Wednesday that the league did investigate George’s relationship with Shaw, a Pacers assistant from 2011-13, but determined it did not violate tampering rules.The people of Palmdale, meanwhile, do not fall under the NBA’s jurisdiction, nor can they be penalized for tampering. They are free to recruit George all they want.“I know Paul, he’s a very loyal guy,” Hegre said Tuesday morning, before stepping into practice to prepare his 9-4 Hawks for a nonleague game the next night against Hart High in Newhall. “I know his loyalties are with the Thunder.”And while the high school coach said he has not discussed free agency plans with his former star, he too appreciates the potential storyline of him coming home.“It really is nice when it is a local guy,” Hegre said. “To cheer for the hometown hero. I don’t know if anybody knows whether that’s going to become a reality or not. He may retire with OKC.”Until then, George’s hometown will be hoping. His high school teammate will be hoping.“It’s kind of crazy just to think that a buddy of mine could possibly play for the team that we grew up watching,” Miller said, “and grew up loving.” LOS ANGELES — When Paul George decided that after seven seasons he no longer wished to player for the Indiana Pacers, he approached the team’s management and asked them to trade him to the Lakers.“I wanted to go home,” George said Wednesday morning, hours before leading the Oklahoma City Thunder into Staples Center. “Simple as that.”With George speaking wistfully about what might have been last summer, his hometown is holding out hope for what could still be. The Lakers have failed to recruit top free agents each of the last four summers, but they have built their strategy for the 2018 offseason around signing two superstars to lead a young core of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma.They hope one of those stars will be George, who grew up an hour from downtown Los Angeles. For the more than 150,000 residents of Palmdale, on the north side of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Lakers’ pursuit of George is a constant source of local gossip.“Obviously living in the middle of Laker nation I get that a lot,” said George’s coach at Knight High School, Tom Hegre. “People saying, ‘Man, I hope he’s a Laker next year.’”It goes to the highest levels of city government, with a mayor who identifies as a Lakers fan.“The anticipation is something that people are kind of watching,” Mayor Jim Ledford said this week, “hoping that this thing unfolds the way we hope it does.”The Lakers made their pitch for George last year, but hours before the opening of free agency on July 1, the Pacers traded him to the Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersRelated Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

The “forget the 4+ year degree that amounts to a B.S. degree that isn’t in demand and learn to work with your damn hands” area. lol. Kids need to realize that there are good paying jobs (with excellent benefits) in this type of field. Minimal higher education needs, and only a desire and ability to LEARN to do it.

The project kick started when they developed a grant to award one school per state a 3D carver of their choice.The X-Carve is a multi-axis milling carving machine which is capable of creating precision parts from plastic, wood, metal and other materials. It is created for a workshop setting, and is both customizable and expandable.Participants had to pass a three-round process in order to receive the grant. The first round included an application process that involved surveys, an essay, and questionnaire. Contestants who made it to the second round had to submit a lesson plan/unit on how the 3D carver would be used in their classroom.After reviewing this round, the contestants who made it to the final round had to submit a demonstration by using media on how the carver would be used. Elder and some of his high school students prepared a video clip to explain how the 3D carver would help in their construction class.Elder was successful in all three rounds and was determined the winner of the Inventables grant. This award will allow him to choose a 3D carver that will be used in the Industrial Arts and construction classes.Since educational funding is always limited, especially in those areas, Elder submitted this grant request to enhance his program at Wellington High School.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Powered by Firework The novel Coronavirus, originated in the city of Wuhan in China, found its way into Europe. The sports scene in the continent has taken a big hit from the pandemic, and the most impactful decisions were the cancellation of Serie A and La Liga matches, and also UEFA suspending all Champions League and Europa League games of the coming week. Now, one of the most famous football league in the world, the English Premier League is now postponed until April, along with other English football fixtures.Advertisement Image Courtesy: GettyThe news came on the heels of UEFA suspending the Champions League and Europa League matches today. Following an emergency meeting, it was decided that the top flight of English football would be put on hold for atleast three weeks amongst the virus outbreak in the country, until April 3rd.Along with Premier League, the suspension includes all EFL Championship, League One and League Two matches, along with the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship. Additionally, all academy and youth team fixtures have also faced postponement.Advertisement “This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the COVID-19 virus,” an official statement was released following the emergency meeting.Along with cancelling the matches, the clubs were also advised to drop all non-football activities, including player appearances, training ground visits and fan meetings during the suspension period.Advertisement Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was tested positive for coronavirus, along with Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.Liverpool gaffer Jürgen Klopp opened up to the club’s supporters about the decision from the authorities.“Today’s decision and announcement is being implemented with the motive of keeping people safe. Because of that we support it completely,” Klopp said in a publication in the club’s official website.Liverpool, who are eyeing their first title in 30 years, have to undergo this disruption of the league until they get their hands on the trophy, provided everything moves forward smoothly post-suspension.“We have seen members of teams we compete against become ill. This virus has shown that being involved in football offers no immunity. To our rival clubs and individuals who are affected and to those who later will become so, you are in our thoughts and prayers,”  Klopp added.Also read:All the sports, leagues and promotions that have been suspended due to Conoravirus Advertisementlast_img read more
