He carries a bit more experience than Aaron but they’ve helped a lot,” Jones told Inside United.“Aaron’s up and down [the pitch], his tackling’s probably some of the best I’ve seen, and no one wants to go past him. You see players now stopping, turning around and going the other way, so that’s a credit to him.“Harry’s got the international experience. He’s a big, strong defender who has helped us and I’m sure he’ll be a great addition going forward.” last_img read more

Ohio State baseball rallies to undefeated start in 4game Florida series

Then-sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson awaits a pitch.Credit: Lantern file photoThe Ohio State baseball team opened the 2016 season with a bang.Over the course of the four-game weekend, OSU hammered six home runs, pounded out 38 hits and maintained an unbeaten 3-0-1 record in Vero Beach, Florida’s, Dodgertown Classic. Several Buckeyes had outstanding weekends, but none more than redshirt junior Jacob Bosiokovic. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound right fielder finished the weekend with a .412 batting average after going 7-for-17, including three home runs and eight RBIs. Senior captain Nick Sergakis also finished with a .412 average, and senior second baseman L Grant Davis batted a clean .400. Game 1 versus Toledo In the opening game, the Buckeyes were led by their workhorse pitcher, Tanner Tully, who retired 24 of the 25 batters he faced over six scoreless innings as they defeated Toledo 7-1. “It was just what the doctor ordered to have a first start like that,” OSU coach Greg Beals said in a press release. “Give the Toledo hitters credit. I thought they took some good swings and hit him at times. He wasn’t his sharpest, but six scoreless innings is pretty darn good.”OSU’s offense was powered by the long ball against the Rockets, as it crushed three home runs during the game. Bosiokovic went 3-for-5, with a solo home run in his first at-bat of the year which gave the Buckeyes the early lead. Junior catcher and team captain Jalen Washington also crushed a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to push OSU’s lead to 5-0. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, junior center fielder Troy Montgomery hit a two-run homer to right, pushing OSU’s lead to an insurmountable 7-0. Toledo would tack on a late homer in the top of the eighth to mark the final score of 7-1. Beals said it was great for his team to step up and play clean baseball in the first game of the season, as it has been a long road coming for some of his guys. “Both Jacob and Jalen took advantage of their opportunity today,” Beals said. “Jalen has been working his tail off for three years and got the nod. It was great to see him get off to a good start. For Bosiokovic, he struggled and dealt with some injury in the past, and hopefully today will allow him to relax a little bit and have a great season for us.”Game 2 versus NiagaraTo start Saturday’s doubleheader of the Dodgertown Classic trip, the Buckeye bats continued to carry the momentum, especially Bosiokovic. The Delaware, Ohio, native went 2-for-5, including a two-run homer and a walk-off three-run shot to seal a 10-8 comeback victory for the Buckeyes.Redshirt sophomore pitcher Adam Niemeyer started off hot for OSU, allowing only one run over the first four innings. But then the wheels started to fall off for the Minster, Ohio, native, as he allowed four runs in the fifth. He was pulled that inning, giving way to sophomore reliever Seth Kinker, who stopped the bleeding for OSU. That bandage didn’t stay on for long though, as Kinker allowed two more runs in the top sixth inning, pinning OSU to a 7-4 deficit. The Scarlet and Gray showed resiliency, however, as Washington scored on a sacrifice fly by sophomore designated hitter Jordan McDonough. Kinker would settle down, pitching a scoreless seventh, and Bosiokovic correspondingly hit a two-run home run off the left-center scoreboard tying the game. Kinker pitched a scoreless eighth, then redshirt sophomore Yianni Pavlopoulos made his season debut in the ninth, blanking the Purple Eagles and setting the stage for Bosiokovic.OSU quickly got runners on base in the ninth after senior shortstop Craig Nennig walked and advanced to second on a throwing error. Montgomery was then intentionally walked, bringing up No. 17. Bosiokovic crushed a 2-2 pitch off the foul pole in left field to give the Buckeyes their second victory in as many games. Game 3 versus PittsburghIn the second half of the doubleheader on Saturday, the Buckeyes faced the Pittsburgh Panthers. The game would turn out to be a marathon, as the two teams battled 13 innings before OSU won the game 11-8 after a three-run 13th. Montgomery continued his hot start, as the Fortville, Indiana, native went 3-for-6 on the evening, including his second home run and three RBIs. Senior John Havird pitched 5.2 innings for the Buckeyes as the Game 3 starter for OSU, allowing five runs while striking out six Panthers batters. With Pittsburgh up 6-5 heading into the top of the ninth, OSU rallied for the second time that day, scoring three runs to take the 8-6 lead. The lead wouldn’t last, however, as it evaporated after giving up two more runs to send the game into extra innings. No runs were scored in the 10th, 11th or 12th innings as both teams held their ground. The Buckeyes broke through in the 13th with three runs to push their lead to 11-8. Nennig, Davis and Montgomery all scored to provide the insurance runs for the Scarlet and Gray. Freshman relief pitcher Connor Curlis came in to start the 12th inning and remained in for the 13th to finish off the Panthers and pick up the two-inning win in his collegiate debut. Game 4 versus ToledoAs the final game in Vero Beach got underway, the Buckeyes’ red-hot bats continued to bring home the runs. Junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson hit a double to bring home Montgomery and Bosiokovic in the top of the first inning. Dawson would later score on a sacrifice fly by freshman third baseman Brady Cherry to give OSU the early 3-0 lead. The lead quickly dissolved, however, as freshman starting pitcher Ryan Feltner gave up four runs over the first three innings, leaving the Buckeyes down 4-3. Feltner was pulled in the fifth for senior lefty Daulton Mosbarger. Over the next three innings of scoreless ball, Mosbarger struck out six, allowing just one walk and three hits. OSU tied the game in the eighth when Dawson scored on another sac fly, this time off the bat of junior first baseman Zach Ratcliff. But in the bottom of the same inning, Toledo would tack-on a go-ahead run on a fielding error, putting them in position for the win.The Buckeyes once again turned to the bat of Bosiokovic, who provided the game-tying run on a sacrifice fly to score Davis. The game ended in a 5-5 draw, marking the first time since 2002 that the Buckeyes tied a game. The Buckeyes will next look ahead to the Coastal Carolina Tournament from Feb. 26 to 29. OSU is scheduled to play Duke, Coastal Carolina (twice, Games 2 and 4) and Liberty in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. read more

That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Sarah Tew/CNETlast_img read more

Bengals business chambers laud state Budget 201920

first_imgKolkata: Various business chambers in Bengal lauded the state government’s Budget presented by Finance minister Amit Mitra on Monday.President, MCCI, Vishal Jhajharia said that full exemption of Education Cess and Rural Employment Cess for Tea gardens has been extended for two more years, which would help the tea industry grow. The government has given more emphasis to develop the MSME sector and credit flow to Rs 20,287 crore during April to September 2018, which is noteworthy. Around 95 new SSI clusters have been taken up, taking the total number to 520 from 425. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseHe appreciated the prudent fiscal management of the state, by which revenue deficit has come down to 0.96 percent. Fiscal deficit as a percentage of GSDP has also gone down to 2.83 percent. Industrial growth in the state has been as high as 16.29 percent in 2017-18, compared to 5.54 percent at the national level, which is excellent. He also mentioned that Flipkart is going to develop a Flipkart Hub in Haringhata at a cost of Rs 1,000 crore. Meanwhile, the Bengal Chamber thinks that the Budget has brought in good news for revenue deficit of the state, which has been reduced to zero for 2019-20. The Budget has announced additional income for poorer sections of the society, namely contractual group C and D workers, as well as self-employed persons. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataThe Chamber welcomed the fact that Asha and Anganwadi workers, the backbone of rural society, have seen a rise in monthly salary by Rs 500. The farmers having below 1 acre of land (marginal peasants) will have an annual additional income of Rs 5,000. The fast growth of the industrial sector and GSDP will generate additional revenue to the state, so that on debt head, Bengal needs only a 10 percent rise in this Budget, compared to an increase of almost 55 percent during the last Budget. The Chamber also feels that the Budget has given stress on demands of farmers, social sector and poorer sections of the society, as well as MSMEs. Sitaram Sharma, president, Bharat Chamber of Commerce, said: “From the industry perspective, the full exemption given to tea gardens from the payment of Educational and Rural Employment Cess for the next two financial years is indeed laudable.” “The state’s achievement of a GSDP growth of nearly 12 percent in the last fiscal clearly states that the government has been able to drive aggregate demand and create more and better employment for the youth,” he added.last_img read more

Costa Rica hopes to clinch World Cup berth against a carefree Mexico

first_imgThe Costa Rican Men’s National Team hopes to clinch its spot at the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday when it faces off against a Mexican side that’s missing a few key players, but will arrive carefree in San José. Why? Because Mexico nabbed its World Cup spot on Friday when it defeated Panama 1-0 at home at the Azteca Stadium.Costa Rica took a step toward classification that same night when it defeated the United States, 2-0, bringing it within one point of a trip to Russia.The final round of Concacaf qualifying, known as the Hexagonal, assigns three direct World Cup spots; the fourth-place team will battle an Asian side for a ticket to Russia.Mexican captain Andrés Guardado said that in some ways, the match against Costa Rica, scheduled for 8 p.m., feels like the first match of the World Cup for the Tricolor.“We have won in places where we haven’t won for a long time, and today we’re one step away from taking first place,” he said. “The World Cup starts today [for us]. We have to think about what we can do to arrive at the World Cup in the best possible way, and what would be better than taking first place in the Hexagonal?” Costa Rican coach Oscar “El Machillo” Ramírez said Costa Rica has quite a challenge ahead as it seeks to achieve its classification on the field with Mexico.“It’s a very competitive side and we’ll have to know how to manage it,” he said after his team’s victory against the United States.Possible lineups – Costa Rica: Keylor Navas – Cristian Gamboa, Johnny Acosta, Kendall Waston, Francisco Calvo, Bryan Oviedo – David Ramírez, Celso Borges, Bryan Ruiz, Cristian Bolaños – Marco Ureña. Coach: Óscar Ramírez.Mexico: Guillermo Ochoa – Jair Pereira, Hugo Ayala, Diego Reyes, Héctor Moreno – Andrés Guardado, Jesús Gallardo, Jürgen Damm – Carlos Vela, Jesús Corona and Javier Hernández. Coach: Juan Carlos Osorio. Facebook Comments However, the team will face Costa Rica with three key players missing: Héctor Herrera because of an injury, Jesús Dueñas because of a family matter, and Néstor Araujo because of a suspension for accumulated yellow cards.center_img Related posts:Costa Rica returns with full-strength lineup in last step toward World Cup qualifying The 5 greatest moments in Costa Rican soccer history Costa Rica humiliates the United States 4-0 in World Cup qualifier ‘La Sele’ draws Nicaragua, Haiti and Bermuda in Gold Cup grouplast_img read more

Amazon said it plans to increase its spend on vide

first_imgAmazon said it plans to increase its spend on video throughout 2018, after the company more than doubled its profits in Q1.Brian OlsavskySpeaking on Amazon’s first quarter earnings call, chief financial officer Brian Olsavsky said that “video content spend will increase year-over-year” and predicted that strength areas like Amazon Web Services, and advertising will continue to perform for the company.Asked whether Amazon would include advertising around its Prime Video offering, Olsavsky said: “There may be opportunities over time to have more advertising in our video, but we choose not to do that right now.”The comments follow reports from last year claiming that Amazon was developing a free-advertising-supported offering to complement its Prime Video subscription video-on-demand service.Amazon’s results came as the company renewed a deal with the NFL to stream Thursday Night Football games in 2018 and 2019 to Prime subscribers around the world. The deal will also reportedly see Amazon broadcast matches through its videogame-streaming platform Twitch.For the three months ended March 31, 2018, Amazon reported revenues of US$51.0 billion, up 43% year-on-year. Net income more than doubled to US$1.6 billion, compared to US$724 million in Q1 2017.The results sent Amazon’s share price to an all-time high in after-hours trading after it climbed by more than 7%.The news comes a week after Amazon chief Jeff Bezos revealed in his yearly shareholders letter that Prime now has 100 million members, which he partly attributes to continuing content expansion.In the statement, Bezos said that Prime Video continues to drive Prime Member adoption and retention, adding: “We’ve expanded our slate of programming across the globe, launching new seasons of Bosch and Sneaky Pete from the US, The Grand Tour from the UK, and You Are Wanted from Germany, while adding new Sentosha shows from Japan, along with Breathe and the award-winning Inside Edge from India.”In December research firm Ovum predicted that Amazon will overtake Netflix to generate more over-the-top video revenue in 2018 thanks to its “growing array of ways to pay for video”.The research firm said that Amazon’s combination of subscriptions, digital rentals, electronic sell-through and bundles of TV apps will see it generate US$5.8 billion in video-related revenue in 2018, compared to US$5.3 billion for Netflix’s subscription-only offering.last_img read more

A disabled campaigner who has been refused permiss

first_imgA disabled campaigner who has been refused permission to apply for a vital disability benefit in a way that is accessible to him has begun legal proceedings against the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).Graham Kirwan has been told that he is unable to communicate via email as he attempts to claim personal independence payment (PIP).Kirwan had previously been a long-term claimant of disability living allowance (DLA) but had his payments suspended when he failed to respond to letters asking him to apply for PIP, letters that he says he never received and that would not have been accessible to him anyway.Kirwan, who is partially-sighted, has computer software that can magnify text, but it does not generally work with scanned or PDF documents.He has been told by DWP to use the charity Citizens Advice to help with his application for PIP – which is gradually replacing working-age DLA – but he wants to fill in the form himself, so he can take responsibility for the accuracy of the answers.And he points to DWP guidance that states that email is an acceptable alternative for communication for people with his access needs.Kirwan says that while most people can fill in their PIP claim form with a pen costing just 10 pence (DWP provides a free envelope and postage), he has spent £1,200 equipping himself with the necessary technology to communicate effectively, as well as facing annual costs of about another £700.He said: “In this instance the disability is being deliberately created by the DWP. I have no communication disability? when allowed to use email and assistive software.“Email is cost effective and creates independence, choice and control?.“Using Citizens Advice when I can do something for myself is using up their valuable resources and my limited time?.“Although they may be experts in the field of compiling forms, it only takes one mistake (by a first-time volunteer)? on their part for me to fail to be awarded PIP.“The responsibility would be mine, as I am forced to sign a piece of paper which I cannot be 100 per cent sure is correct.”Kirwan has told DWP that completing forms over the telephone or through a home visit from a civil servant places him at a substantial disadvantage to other disabled people, while he has been told that forms completed over the telephone would still need to be sent to him to be read and signed.He has told DWP in a legal letter that “the DWP system for sending and receiving information to blind and partially sighted people is at best ad hoc and prone to consistent failure”.Kirwan, who represents Dudley Centre for Inclusive Living on accessible information issues, has already secured one legal victory over a government department, after a threatened judicial review led to the Department of Health publishing its first accessible information standard earlier this year.A DWP spokeswoman confirmed that the department had received Kirwan’s email, but she said she was unable to comment further because of the legal nature of the complaint.last_img read more
