How the A’s might experiment with their bullpen during tough stretch

first_imgOAKLAND — The A’s have been able to rest the majority of their bullpen arms after a recent strong run by their starters. But the time to place more of a reliance on the relief corps is coming soon.Monday’s game against the Boston Red Sox was day five of a stretch of 18 consecutive days in which the A’s will play a game.

Solar wi-fi lamps to connect rural areas

first_img21 August 2014South African-based technology company Net1 Mobile Solutions is preparing to roll out the Sun-e-light, a solar-powered lamp which also functions as a mobile phone charger and a wi-fi hotspot, as part of a corporate social responsibility project aimed at opening up the digital world to people in rural areas.Chief marketing officer Jose Carlos Da Silva Soares, in a recent interview with SAinfo, said the concept of the Sun-e-light had evolved as the company looked into ways of providing connectivity to rural communities not linked to the electricity grid.“We began talks with a production company in China which specialises in producing simple yet innovative products to produce a prototype [of the Sun-e-light] for us, which has now been refined and tested over a period of two years,” Soares said.The result is a lamp with a 3G-enabled modem which acts as a wireless router that can be accessed via wi-fi and potentially even Bluetooth.Soares said the lamp, which takes eight hours to charge and provides a battery life of up to 16 hours, will be rolled out to communities “in most need of solar lighting and connectivity. We will roll out 2 000 lamps initially, with more to follow once we have an idea of demand.“We are trying to make acquiring a lamp as easy as possible, and have thus enabled features on our USSD [unstructured supplementary services data] platforms that permit people to request a lamp directly from their mobile phone.” Soares said the company will make use of the Net1 group’s countrywide distribution network to deliver the lamps as close as possible to the consumer’s location. Net1 Mobile Solutions is a subsidiary of JSE- and Nasdaq-listed Net1 UEPS Technologies.“Accessibility and connectivity will enable these communities to better themselves and those around them, and this can ultimately lead to a hugely positive spin-off effect,” Soares said, adding: “Our particular focus leans towards learners, entrepreneurs, vendors and job seekers.”To alleviate the high data costs for users, Soares said they are hoping to partner with other companies and mobile network operators to buy large bundles of data to offer to Sun-e-light recipients on reasonable terms.The lamps will also be available for sale to the public, for under R300, “and with electricity prices rising by 7% recently, we have no doubt that a huge target market for the solar lamp will be people who would like to save monthly costs on electricity and data,” Soares said.“If the product roll-out goes well, we will be looking to move manufacturing to South Africa, which in turn should bring more opportunities for employment to locals.”The company has already begun giving away 2 000 mobile phone charger lamps – an earlier version of the Sun-e-light, which comes without wi-fi. “These will also be for sale [to the public] for around the R250 mark,” Soares said.“We believe solar power is becoming hugely important. Both public and private organisations are moving towards solar powered initiatives to get off the grid, thereby saving money and reducing pressure on Eskom. It’s also more environmentally friendly, and we can all contribute more to being more environmentally aware and being better corporate citizens.”last_img read more

Popovich praises LeBron’s courage to speak on social issues

first_imgFamilies in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving MOST READ Popovich shrugged off his links to James.“His career is way bigger than he and Pop,” Popovich said with a laugh. “There’s a great respect that goes both ways, for sure. I love the guy. But I guess we’ve both been around for a while and competed a few times and we’ve each won and lost. But it’s never been an individual sort of thing. He’s always been a team guy and hopefully I’m the same way.”Following San Antonio’s 110-94 win over Cleveland, James said he appreciated Popovich’s words. He also intends to remain vocal about his beliefs.“For me as an athlete and for me as a role model, I just try to do my part to help these kids and the youth understand how important their lives are and they can become anything in this world,” James said. “No matter the negativity that may be going on around them, there’s always a brighter side. For me, while I have this platform, I will continue to do that and continue to lend my voice and lend my spirit and lend my inspiration to these kids, because I know exactly what they’re going through because I was one of them at one point in time not too long ago.“Pop is definitely one of my all-time favorite people that I’ve ever crossed paths with in my life.”ADVERTISEMENT Popovich said he’s never been around a player like James, who doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down at 33. And while Popovich marvels at James’ physical gifts, he’s more impressed by how the four-time MVP carries himself off the floor.James has had a major impact in Northeast Ohio with his community efforts. His foundation has supported kids in the Akron area to attend college tuition free, which is why Popovich was so put off by Ingraham’s remarks.“It’s kind of like the ‘Black Panther’ movie,” Popovich said. “How cool is that for kids to see that, to have that superhero? Well, LeBron’s been that for a long time. For somebody to be totally numb to that and attack him in such a childish way really speaks more volumes about that individual than it does LeBron. He’s very, very special. We should all be very proud that we have someone like that who’s willing to speak about a variety of topics and you listen to them all.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

AUSTRALIA CLAIMS CHAMPION NATION STATUS AT WORLD CUP

first_imgMen’s 35 Years   Australia 3 def South Africa 2 Men’s 40 Years   Australia 12 def Barbarians 1 Touch Football Australia’s World Cup contingent has returned home triumphant after retaining the champion nation crown at the sixth Federation of International Touch (FIT) World Cup played at the Daniel Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch South Africa from 17-21 January 2007.The seven Australian World Cup teams performed creditably winning Gold in five out of seven divisions and Silver in the remaining two divisions.The Australians retained their World Champion status in the face of a tremendous challenge from 15 Nations, including archrivals New Zealand and the vastly improved host nation South Africa who finished third in the overall standings in the champion nation race. Australia is the only nation to field teams in every division offered at every World Cup since the event was first contested on the Gold Coast in 1988.Australia now has an outstanding record in World Cup history having lost only 5 out of 42 divisional finals in twenty-years of World Cup competition.The Australian Women’s Open Team, arguably Australia’s most successful Women’s sporting team in any code at World Cup level, led Australia’s charge with a crushing 9-3 demolition of New Zealand in the final.The Australian Women’s Team now proudly boasts an incredible 54 game winning streak at World Cup level spanning a twenty-year period.The Women’s team has never suffered defeat in World Cup competition and has completed a remarkable run of sustained excellence over six pristine campaigns at this level.Sisters Louise and Claire Winchester, twins Amanda and Kristy Judd, and Kelly Woods and Rachel Holden starred for the Aussies in a stellar team performance in the final that underlined the dominance and skill level of the Women’s game in Australia.The Aussie Women scored three Touchdowns in the opening three minutes of the Final to totally demoralize the Kiwis and there was no way back with a fit, hungry, cohesive, and well prepared Australian side determined to see four time World Cup veterans Captain Sharyn Williams, Vice Captain Melissa Pitfield, and the Judd twins out of World Cup competition on the best possible note.Coach Kerry Norman and Assistant Coach Dean Russell’s hard work and thorough preparation was reflected in outstanding form from all members of the 16-player squad who each played their part in a deserved triumph.The Australian Men’s Open Team, who have won every World Cup final contested, had to pull out all stops against a highly skilled, youthful, and agile New Zealand combination. The ‘Touch Blacks’ drew 5-5 with the Australians in their round clash earlier in the tournament and pushed the World champion Australians all the way in the decider. Australia rode home off the back of some stunning footwork from the mercurial Drumayne Dayberg-Muir who was later crowned Most Valuable Player of the World Cup after engineering Australia’s 8-5 victory, gift-wrapping the clincher for Australian Vice Captain Jason Stanton.The game ebbed and flowed after Australia again got out to an early lead like they did in the round game against the Kiwis, only to be reeled in by a fast finishing Kiwi team who played with tremendous heart, spirit, and fast feet that sonic the hedgehog would die for.The Aussies were not short of heroes themselves with Joel Willoughby, Jamie Stowe, Phil Gyemore, and Captain Gavin Shuker providing the framework for the Australian victory.Special mention must be made of defensive king Ash Farrow, who should be used instead of the Great Wall of China to ‘keep the rabbits out’. Sunshine was not even getting through on his watch.Coaches Tony Trad and Peter Robinson can be well pleased with the resilience shown by the Australian boys who remained composed and found a way to win under enormous pressure.New Zealand narrowly defeated Australia 6-4 in their “pet” division of Mixed Open after an absorbing battle. Australia won the last World Cup in the Mixed Open division in 2003 with a side containing a number of players with exceptional footwork including Drumayne Dayberg Muir and current NRL Super star Benji Marshall, but could not resist the challenge from a young New Zealand team big on combination, experience, and tried and tested skills in the Mixed genre of the game.Dean Williams, who possesses one of the most lethal pair of feet in the game, was simply exceptional for New Zealand and despite his dominant display Australia was not short of effort and big game performers who left it all out on the field for their Country as they had promised to do in an emotional pre-game team meeting.Ben Mc Cullen, Brad Holden, Matt Tope, and Ben and Steve Roberts all stepped up to the plate whilst Co-Captain Mary Steele, Belinda Gretch, and Rebecca Tavo all stood firm in both attack and defence.Co-Captain Tony Eltakchi gave his all and it was disappointing loss to end a marvellous career at World Cup Open level for Australia’s ‘Mr. Mixed’. Eltakchi has been a monument to the game at this level and can stand proudly amongst the very best and most committed players to pull on the green and gold. In the wake of Eltakchi’s loss, and the dominance of New Zealand, Australia will need to keep working on ways to broaden and improve playing skills, knowledge, and experiences unique to the Mixed game for future National players to ensure that the Mixed division thrives in this Country and at International level.Coach Gary Madders can be pleased that the gap between the two nations has narrowed since the 2005 All Nations Championships and that there are better times ahead for this division in the future. The Kiwis claimed their second title of the tournament in the Mixed 30 Years division with a nail biting 8-7 triumph over Australia.The kiwis headlined by “Mr. Touch” Peter Walters were expected to dominate this division.Their 4-1 defeat of Australia in the round game between the two heavyweights of International Touch Football, suggested it would be hard going for an Aussie team full of rookie Mixed players at this level.To coaching staff Wayne Grant and John Collin’s credit, some big deficiencies were turned around in a short space of time and a very determined, gutsy, and skilled Australian Mixed 30s team narrowly went down 8-7 to the Kiwis.The Aussies covered themselves in glory in an outstanding effort and, although not quite achieving their “World Champion” goal, the Aussie camp could not have been any prouder of the fight shown by the 30s Mixed team.Co-Captains Clynton Wastell and Cathy Ring were standouts, whilst Amanda Bourne, Alan Watts, and Manu Wakely impressed with big match performances in the Grand final.Australia collected the Men’s 30 Years division Gold Medal in a dominant 13-2 display over Samoa, having bulldozed through the competition like a front rower 1 metre out from the tryline all week.The 30s Men were cohesive and professional all tournament with Captain Chris Benfield, Adam Fahim, Ben Smith, and Wayne Gleeson producing the goods all week.The Men’s 35s division claimed a close 3-2 verdict over host nation South Africa with Captain Dave Raper and Chris Ferguson leading the way.Coach Michael Mc Donald kept heads steady and the Australians’ withstood a hometown blood and thunder effort from the Springboks to wrap up the division for Australia.Australia capped off their tournament with a 12-1 victory against a Barbarians line-up in the Men’s 40s division.Ash Taylor nabbed 4 touchdowns and Peter Wandl a hat trick in a comprehensive performance by the Aussie team who all scored touchdowns during the tournament.The game against the Barbarians was a fitting way for many of Australia’s pioneers of the game at Representative level to wave good bye to the sport at International level.Coach Dennis Coffey and Assistant Coach John Singh can be well pleased that their team’s thorough preparation resulted in such an outstanding performance.After being presented with the World Cup at the Daniel Craven Stadium, the Australian Teams headed back to their Pretoria Hotel base in Stellenbosch for a Team function.Team Awards were presented in every division, touring, coaching, medical, administration, and support staff were acknowledged, and a few quite ales were consumed by all, not to mention the belting out of a few impromptu songs from the Aussie Open Men’s team.The “We don’t need another Farrow” (to the tune of Tina Turner’s ‘We don’t need another Hero’) was amongst the crowd’s favourites.Australia’s victorious Men’s Open Coach, Tony Trad made the point that the National Anthem was not played once during Australia’s golden finals run at the fields, so appropriately all Aussie Team members rose to their feet to deliver a heartfelt, loud, off-key, but supremely proud rendition of “Advance Australia Fair” to put the finishing touches on Australia’s World Cup defence celebrations.All the Aussies were singing, even Melissa Pitfield who has had a well publicized Milli Vanilli mime act going for 12 years, but even the Aussie Vice Captain relaxed her own rule and was just another off-key but fantastically proud Aussie singing her heart out – Australian Idol be very afraid!All Australian Team members then attended the official World Cup function at nearby Spier and enjoyed traditional South African food, drink, and entertainment whilst mingling and swapping uniforms with touch playing colleagues from around the World.Most Valuable Players were awarded across all divisions, Scotland was officially announced as the 2011 host nation for the seventh FIT World Cup, and Australia’s Captains congregated on stage to accept the World Cup that enjoyed a prominent spot on the Qantas flight home on Monday/Tuesday.Aussie players headed back to the Pretoria Hotel where they enjoyed their own private celebrations in the club downstairs, many to the wee hours of the morning – revelling in their newly acquired World Champion status.Dancefloor stars included Stevie “Devo” Roberts,Rebecca Tavo, Teena Mac Ilveen, the Winchester sisters, dark horse Kelly Mc Genity, Rach Holden, and Benny Roberts.The ‘star’ performer was an Aussie Men’s 30s Men’s player whose mimed “Skipping Rope” routine lasted 20 minutes and had the crowd throwing coinage rand at his feet – not sure if it was for more moves or to pay him off to make him stop!After breakfast Monday morning, the tour party went their separate ways, some keen to get started on Game Park adventures, others keen for the beaches and bright lights of Sun City, and some even off to dive with Great White Sharks.The rest of us set off for home with a head and heart full of memories of a land, a people, and an experience that will not be easily erased by time.Knowing that the World Cup trophy that we had all given up so much for was once again firmly in Aussie clutches meant mission accomplished for Australia’s mighty World Cup contingent of players, coaches, managers, administrators, and supporters both at home and abroad who each played their part in Australia’s triumph.Even a plane delay could not wipe the smiles off our faces, in fact Kelly Woods added to this with her insightful comment,“That flight from South Africa flew on the way back.”We were all pleased Wood duck cleared up the mode of transport issue for us, just in case we were wondering after almost 24 hours of traveling..The Qantas flight home was great with Individualized Premier movies and console games at our disposal and the use of an air phone to call the ground or anyone else on board.Super coach Kerry Norman wanted to test out the seat-to-seat phone communication.I was pretty tired but saw an incoming call on my system and picked up the phone.“Hello”“Karls it’s Kez, how cool is this, it works.” Kerry enthused.Sleepy and stunned I looked one seat away to see Kerry talking to me like some walkie-talkie bandit,“That’s great Kez, I can see that, good to know.”“Ok roger, over and out” Kerry said.I just shook my head and drifted off to sleep smiling at another great memory of a fantastic time abroad shared with so many great people in our sport.As the South Africans say,Totsiens (goodbye) Salakahle, (stay well) and Hambakahle (go well). Results of Federation of International Touch World Cup Finals 2007Open Women’s    Australia 9

Tim Hinton hops aboard Urban Meyers staff at Ohio State

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer didn’t have to wait long for an answer after asking Tim Hinton to serve as tight ends and fullbacks coach for the Buckeyes. “It was about 10 o’clock on a Friday (when Meyer) asked me to be part of the staff, and I can tell you by 10:01 I’d said yes,” Hinton said on Jan. 12 at an introductory press conference for the assistant coaching staff. Hinton, entering his 31st year of coaching and 17th at the collegiate level, joins the staff after coaching running backs at Notre Dame for the past two seasons. He and Meyer met and coached the Buckeyes together as graduate assistants in 1986, and Hinton received his master’s degree from OSU in 1987. Meyer said Hinton’s coaching resume within Ohio, which includes five state playoff berths in 11 years as coach of Harding High School in Marion, Ohio, as one of the primary reasons for his hiring. “(Hinton) and I worked together on the Ohio State staff in 1986, but what I am most impressed with is his time spent as a high school coach in Ohio,” Meyer said. “He had some outstanding teams at Harding and his extensive experiences coaching in the state were crucial in my desire to want him on our staff.” Hinton, who admits to being “a high school coach who coaches college football,” said the many relationships he has developed with Ohio high school coaches over the years can be helpful to OSU’s recruiting. “I’m one of those guys, so I’m kind of the alumni,” he said. “There are some great high school coaches in the state of Ohio and we’ve got to foster those relationships and continue to have great relationships with those coaches. “My wife (Bev), when she goes with me (to coaching clinics) says ‘Is there anyone that you don’t know?’ So I think that’s where it helps. There’s a personal connection and a personal relationship … I think having those great relationships with those coaches and knowing them on a personal basis, not just a professional basis, helps.” This will be the first time Hinton has coached tight ends since he served as the wide receivers and tight ends coach at Wilmington College from 1982-84. During the years of former OSU coach Jim Tressel, the tight end position was sometimes lost in the shuffle in the run-oriented “Tressel ball” offense. As Meyer brings his version of the spread offense to Ohio Stadium, it might seem that tight ends will continue to be overlooked, this time in lieu of multiple wide receivers and shifty running backs. Hinton said he isn’t buying that notion, and that the tight end position can have success in Meyer’s offense. New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is perhaps the best example of how a tight end can succeed in Meyer’s spread offense. Hernandez tallied 111 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns under Meyer at Florida from 2007-09. Hinton said regardless of position, talented players will see the field and that the spread offense’s versatility offers a role for everyone. “The good players are always going to find an opportunity to get on the field,” Hinton said. “I’ve been in the spread offense for the last five years and you can utilize people in many different ways … there’s just a thousand ways to utilize your personnel and I think that’s one of the great things that the spread can bring you.” Read The Lantern on Tuesday for the next profile in the “Meyer’s New Men” coaching staff profile series. read more

Football Five takeaways ahead of Urban Meyers return

Ohio State acting head coach Ryan Day prepares to lead the Buckeyes onto the field prior to the game against Oregon State game on Sept. 1 in Ohio Stadium. Ohio State won 77-31. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorFor Ryan Day, Saturday’s season debut was different. The offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Ohio State served as a head coach for the first time in his coaching career, continuing his role as the acting head coach for the Buckeyes while Urban Meyer serves his three-game suspension. However, Day’s time as acting head coach, at least during the week, is complete. Per the suspension, Meyer is allowed to coach Ohio State for practices starting Sept. 3 despite not being allowed to coach in games. After Saturday’s 77-31 win over Oregon State, Day said he will be excited to bring Meyer back into the fold. “When Coach gets back, we’re looking forward to getting him back and looking forward to those meetings and kind of building as we go to Rutgers,” Day said. “It will be business as usual for us. We’ll look at the film, make corrections, go from there.” Here are five things Meyer will see when he returns to his head coaching role. Dwayne Haskins with a start under his beltComing into the 2018 season without a collegiate start, redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins had expectations to be successful without a lot of experience to back it up. On Saturday, the Buckeyes caught a glimpse of what the Ohio State offense could be with Haskins at the helm. Completing 73.3 percent of his passes, Haskins threw for 313 yards, becoming the first quarterback in Ohio State history to throw for more than 300 yards in his first collegiate start. That was not it for the redshirt sophomore. He also threw five touchdown passes, the most in Ohio State history for a quarterback in his first start. Haskins did have the help of Ohio State’s veteran wide receiver room, throwing 21 of his 30 total pass attempts to redshirt junior K.J. Hill, junior Austin Mack, redshirt senior Parris Campbell, who recorded a touchdown reception, and redshirt senior Terry McLaurin, who brought in four catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Like McLaurin said in his postgame interview, the older receivers seemed to help Haskins feel more comfortable as the starter and, therefore, increasing his confidence as the game continued. Now, with one game started and completed, Haskins goes into the Big Ten opener with that in-game experience as the starting quarterback at Ohio State. A “two-headed monster” running game Haskins was not the only player helping move the ball for the Ohio State offense. Both running backs, sophomore J.K. Dobbins and redshirt junior Mike Weber, helped outrush Oregon State 375 to 196 in Saturday’s 46-point win. Against the Beavers, even though both backs split carries, Weber took control. Leading the way with 20 carries, the Detroit, Michigan native recorded 186 yards on the ground, a career-high, and four touchdowns, including the first touchdown reception of his collegiate career. With 15 carries, Dobbins got his share of playing time as well. But, the sophomore back averaged 4.9 yards per carry compared to Weber’s 9.3, with his longest rush going for 10 yards. However, as Day said in the Big Ten Coaches Teleconference prior to the season opener on Saturday, Ohio State has a “two-headed monster” at running back. The Ohio State coaching staff has been known to give the ball to the hot hand, especially in the running game, but dispersed carries pretty evenly in the first game of the season. In Saturday’s opener, Day even used both Dobbins and Weber in the same backfield, using the sophomore to block for the redshirt junior as he received a 3-yard shovel pass from Haskins to score in the second quarter. It’s that balance, that belief that no matter who’s in the game, Dobbins or Weber, that the offense will continue to run efficiently, that Ohio State wants. An as-advertised defensive line From the moment Ohio State’s defensive line took the field for the first time, opposing offenses began to feel its effects. After driving to the Ohio State 39-yard line to start the first drive of the game, Oregon State senior quarterback Jake Luton dropped back to pass and was instantly met by junior defensive end Nick Bosa, who brought him to the ground, recording his first forced fumble of the day and giving the offense good field position to start the day. In Saturday’s win, the Ohio State defensive line recorded five of the six total tackles for loss, including two sacks by Bosa and two sacks by redshirt junior defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones, who had one career sack heading into Saturday’s game. Bosa also forced and recovered two fumbles including one in the end zone for an Ohio State touchdown. Even from the other side of the line from Bosa, defensive linemen were making the quarterback feel uncomfortable. Sophomore defensive end Chase Young recorded two of Ohio State’s three total quarterback hits in the season opener. A secondary with work to doBehind the defensive line, Ohio State struggled to stop Oregon State in both stopping the pass and stopping the run at the second level of the defense. When taking over for Luton after the first drive of the game, redshirt sophomore quarterback Conor Blount completed 12 of 19 passes for 169 yards and two touchdown passes, including a 49-yard touchdown in the first quarter. In the running game, when junior running back Artavis Pierce passed the defensive line, he could not be stopped, recording an 80-yard touchdown run and a 78-yard touchdown run, giving him 168 yards on 11 rushes. With the loss of junior safety and team captain Jordan Fuller to a hamstring injury, co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Alex Grinch called it a “game-time decision,” the Ohio State secondary, specifically sophomore safeties Isaiah Pryor and Jahsen Wint, had more responsibility in the defense as a whole. At times on Saturday, the Buckeyes struggled to stop an offense that struggled to score one year ago. With Fuller, supposedly, on the verge of returning against Rutgers, the Ohio State secondary will likely be glad to have him back. However, he is just one player. Ohio State could have some work to do in the defensive backfield. Freshmen impacting early The 26-member 2018 recruiting class has already made an impact in the first game of the season. Nine true freshman made their college debut against Oregon State on Saturday. Both running backs, Master Teague and Brian Snead, each took snaps in the Ohio State offense. They combined for 81 yards on 13 rushes, each recording their first rushing touchdown of their careers. In the passing game, wide receiver Chris Olave recorded his first career reception, taking in a 5-yard pass from redshirt freshman quarterback Tate Martell in the second quarter. Defensive linemen Tommy Togiai, Tyler Friday, Taron Vincent and Tyreke Smith each received playing time, with Togiai leading the way with two solo tackles. Linebackers K’Vaughan Pope and Dallas Gant each got playing time in special teams along with safety Josh Proctor. Redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Antwuan Jackson also made his debut for the Buckeyes after coming in as the No. 3 JUCO prospect in the country heading into the season. read more
