Womens Hockey No 7 Ohio State reopens conference play against No 1

Ohio State then-freshman goalie Andrea Braendli (30) prepares for a shot in the game against Minnesota State on Oct. 11. Ohio State won 4-0. Credit: Wyatt Crosher | Assistant Sports EditorThe Ohio State women’s hockey team is ready to prove that last year’s Frozen Four run was no fluke.The No. 7 Buckeyes (14-6, 8-4 Big Ten) will try to steal a win against No. 1 Wisconsin (19-1, 9-1 Big Ten) as they begin a home series against the Badgers on Friday.Ohio State will face a Wisconsin offense that is No. 2 in the country in goals and No. 1 in scoring margin.With the Badgers entering the weekend on an 11-game winning streak, the Buckeyes’ interim associate head coach Andrew Cassels said the series will test his team’s mettle.“It’s a great way to measure up our team versus the best team in the country,” Cassels said. “It’s going to show us where we are and how far we have to come. It’s a great challenge for the girls.”Ohio State is no stranger to defeating the Badgers. The Buckeyes claimed victories in their past two matchups against the Big Ten rival last year in February.“We had some success against them last year,” Cassels said. “We’ll take a lot of footage from that and try to put that into our game plan.”Cassels emphasized Wisconsin’s speed and said that blocking shots will be key to neutralizing its prolific offense, encouraging his team to get into shooting lanes and making sure the Badgers cannot easily get shots off.Coming on the heels of a three-game win streak, Ohio State’s standout freshman goalie Andrea Braendli said the Buckeyes don’t have many adjustments to make.“I don’t want to change my strategy,” Braendli said. “I have to play my game. The most important thing is that we have to trust each other. We have to have each other’s back.”Braendli, who is No. 8 in the nation with a .939 save percentage, said playing a highly touted conference rival such as Wisconsin provokes a higher sense of anticipation from the team, bringing an excitement to the Ohio State locker room ahead of the weekend.But Ohio State redshirt junior defenseman Jincy Dunne thinks it brings a higher expectation for the team, saying the Buckeyes defense will have to be aggressive in front of Braendli against the creative Wisconsin lines.“We have to be a nightmare to play against,” Dunne said. “We have to be all over them all the time, every second. Any time they’re around us, they’re not being untouched.”With Wisconsin outscoring opponents 81-23 on the season, Dunne said the Badgers defense has yet to face the type of challenge that the Buckeyes can give them.“I don’t think their defense has really had to play defense,” Dunne said. “They’re a very offensive-heavy team so if we can just get pressure on their defense and get pucks behind them, I think we’ll be very successful.”Dunne stressed the impact a series victory against the Badgers could have on the national perception of the Buckeyes. “It would be huge for us to get up in those rankings and show that the Frozen Four wasn’t a mishap,” Dunne said.The Buckeyes face Wisconsin in Columbus at 6:07 p.m. Friday at the OSU Ice Rink and again at 3:07 p.m. Saturday. read more

New Perspective on Service Charge impact on Resorts Recommendations for Govt

first_img TCI Govt Year End Report: $67.8 Million surplus, MPs row over service charge Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #resortrecommendationstogovernment, #ServiceChargebill TCI: Landmark vote, House of Assembly members support workers getting full service charge Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp TCI: ‘Big mistake’ says Deputy Premier after Gansevoort staff ‘change’ letter leaked Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 30, 2017 – Providenciales – The national conversation being had about service charge has to be handled right or it could lead to a shut-down of expansions or closure of resort properties in the TCI.  Confusions over the reason for the tax to guests, the revenue itself and how it is dispersed and even the name of the tax are emerging everyday with more and more information coming and more and more people being engaged in the conversation.One thing appears clear though, both major political parties are determined to fulfill campaign promises to industry employees to see them receive 100% of this fee, currently they are getting 60% of the tax, and not 40% as we had previously reported.  Titles like gratuity, service charge, resort fee and facilities fee have all been linked to this money which is vital to the workers’ take home pay and vital, Magnetic Media is learning to the operation of the resorts.On Tuesday, the PDM Administration announced that a survey was launched to begin public engagement and last week, PNP Appointment Member, Royal Robinson seemed to pick up where his brother, Clarence Selver left off.  As the then PDM appointed Member, Selver also tried to champion that all of this money should go to hospitality workers.  Many resorts are exposing though that to lose the 40% or not to get at least that 40% would be catastrophic when it comes to the profitability of the properties; in some cases it would actually eliminate profits say some.One recommendation which Magnetic Media has been exposed to is that there needs to be clarity in the terminology.  The charge needs to be a guest paid tip or gratuity – newly created – which goes 100% to the hospitality worker and that there needs to be a name change of service charge to something more suitable like facilities or resort fee.  Once established, this facilities or resort fee could continue to be split, 60-40 as is the case currently.  It will mean guests voluntarily leave money in a newly created revenue stream and all of it goes to the staff;  and that the staffers continue to get their 60% share of a resort or facilities fee with the resorts holding onto the 40% to offset operational costs.Magnetic Media is told that this will have to be discussed with government as the major focus is obviously to appease the thousands of workers in the sector, who believe they have for years been shortchanged by not getting this collected money in full.#MagneticMediaNews#Servicechargebill#resortrecommendationstogovernment Recommended for youlast_img read more

Power52 Prepares Citizens for Work in Solar Industry

first_imgBy Tiffany Ginyard, AFRO Managing EditorTen individuals from Baltimore City and surrounding counties recently graduated from Power52 Energy Institute poised for a life of sustained success and self-sufficiency. The institute is the centerpiece of Power52, a solar initiative that provides employment training for at-risk adults, returning citizens, and underserved individuals in preparation for careers in the solar industry as well as other green job opportunities.Connected over collective interests to create solutions to social challenges in disadvantaged communities, Cherrie Brooks, a Baltimore-based solar developer; Rob Wallace, a real estate executive; and Ray Lewis an iconic NFL star designed a workforce program dedicated to creating community solutions using solar initiatives for a long-term community development strategy of breaking cycles of poverty, unemployment, under employment and incarceration in urban communities across the nation.Former Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis (Courtesy Photo)From their deeply rooted faith, the three shared a vision of strengthening individuals from the inside and the pride that comes when one builds his future with his own hands. Power52 Energy Institute in Baltimore City offers an accredited eleven-week comprehensive training program which includes services to help ensure that the people are successful.  Power 52 believes that, “much like the power itself, the future and opportunities of those it benefits should be sustainable too.”Here, former Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis tells the AFRO shares how Power52 has impacted lives and why he’s aligned his life’s work with this initiative.AFRO: How did you get started with this initiative?Ray Lewis: Well I think it was a collective vision that we all came together on with very quickly after the unrest of Freddie grey in 2015 you know, after walking the streets and trying to find out what the real issue was stemming from, you know the quality of jobs we came to hone in on. Then we sat down a few times and really thought about it, worked on it and Me, Cherrie and Daniel came up with how we could use what Rob and his father have done for many years with this energy, and solar. So, we sat down and thought how do we make this work for the community, how do we truly add to the workforce element. And I think that’s how this just naturally happened and with me being a part of it was kind of a natural thing.AFRO: How does Power52 Institute prepare individuals with tools for self-sufficiency?Ray Lewis: True tools! like tools you can actually steal. Things you can look at when you go through our course, and one of the reason we have an 85 percent placement rate. The moment somebody leaves or graduates Power 52’s 11 to 16-week program, we are getting people jobs immediately. And keep in mind, these are people that have been told, “You can’t,” and “No, your record does not show this,” and “You got this history of this.” Everybody has made a mistake somewhere in life and that’s why the rebuilding of individuals and giving them their imagination back again is important. Think about solar energy and climate change. Think about all of these different things that are starting to happen. When I tell you we are one of the very few black companies in solar. But that’s the way we are going; our planet is going solar regardless. We have to; the climate is dictating it and everything around us is dictating it. So we are saying as a company, “No we will not be last in this field.” “No we will be more engaged in this field and we will educate people so they can understand how not to just hold a job.”AFRO: Why makes this initiative unique? Ray Lewis: I’ve been a part of Baltimore a long time. From day one living in Baltimore, I asked, “why don’t we have anyone from the community working in our community?  The reason I am going this route is to show the power of Power 52. Power 52 takes us in each and every community; and it does not hustle the community, it does not ponder something that cannot happen. We promise you a new life, we promise you a new path, but you have to do the work. That’s the beauty of it!last_img read more

Backyard astronomer in Ireland finds supernova

first_img Exploding star in NGC 2397 Citation: Backyard astronomer in Ireland finds supernova (2010, October 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-10-backyard-astronomer-ireland-supernova.html © 2010 PhysOrg.com Image: David Grennan/Astronomy forum. Astronomer David Grennan and his wife Carol were about to turn in from their garden shed observatory in Raheny in Dublin on 17th September when they discovered a supernova. The explosion that caused the burst of light occurred an estimated 290 million years ago. The discovery was confirmed officially by International astronomers earlier this week.Supernovae are stellar explosions that can outshine entire galaxies for a short time, and they are the major source of heavy elements in the Universe.Mr Grennan is a software developer by day, but at night he spends as much time as the Irish weather permits in his home-made observatory, which is a converted garden shed with a retractable roof. Grennan said he had been stargazing since he was about five years old, and had always been fascinated by the stars. He bought his first telescope in 1991, and has continually upgraded his equipment. In 2005 he built his home observatory using standard DIY parts. The observatory is equipped with a 14 inch Cassegrain telescope.David’s wife Carol analyzes the images he takes with his telescope and helps identify interesting objects. They discovered the supernova by comparing images of the galaxy UGC 112 taken in August and September. The signs were tiny, but David’s many years of experience helped him to spot them.David said the discovery was the result of a year’s work, during which he surveyed 2,611 galaxies. He said it was “mind-boggling” to be the first to see something that happened almost 300 million years ago, and the time-lag “is on a scale almost as difficult to comprehend as Ireland’s astronomical debt.” Carol was even more excited than he was, and the two shared a bottle of champagne when the supernova was confirmed. The supernova, named 2010 IK by official astronomy bodies, is the first to be discovered by someone in Ireland, but it is not Grennan’s first discovery. In 2008 he discovered a three-meter-wide asteroid (his second), which he named after his mother, Catherine Griffin, in honor of her encouragement of his stargazing hobby.Grennan, who was once chairman of Astronomy Ireland, said he would love to see young children becoming interested in astrophysics because “it’s amazing what you discover.”Supernovae are spotted regularly, but Professor Stephen Smartt of Queen’s University Belfast said it was unusual for astronomers in northern Europe to find one. He confirmed the finding was the first supernova to be discovered from Ireland.The supernova is expected to be visible with a powerful telescope for the next two or three months, after which it will fade from view.center_img This document is subject to copyright.

Study demonstrates evolution of stereotypes

first_img The research team led by Dr. Doug Martin of the Person Perception Lab at the University of Aberdeen used a technique they have used previously to study the evolution of language. They invented a series of aliens and randomly assigned them different colors, shapes and attributes such as selfishness, adventurousness, arrogance or trustfulness.A volunteer was then called in to learn about the aliens and memorize their personality traits and physical attributes. The volunteer then relayed this information to the researchers, who passed it on to the next volunteer, and so on down a communication chain. What they discovered was that stereotypes began to form almost immediately and particular shapes and colors became linked with personality traits. As it passed down the communication chain the information was unintentionally changed and simplified, and became more structured and thus easier to learn. Dr. Martin said the process seen in the research reflects the oversimplified nature of stereotypes, with social groups (and ourselves) categorized and assigned attributes, and he suggested that they form to help us make sense of the world around us and to give us some basic information as a starting point. The stereotype may turn out not to be applicable to a particular individual, but is nevertheless useful initially.Dr. Martin also pointed out that stereotypes are not fixed and do change over time. For example, a hundred years ago boys were traditionally dressed in pink, while blue was regarded as a “dainty” color more suitable for girls. Both genders wore dresses and played with dolls. The Person Perception Lab team studies many aspects of the transmission of information from person to person and the way in which the brain processes this information. Dr. Martin said their work on stereotypes could lead to being able to predict and even manipulate changes to stereotypes in the future, which could be of benefit to society.Dr. Martin presented his findings in a talk earlier this week at the British Science Festival, which is held in a different city each year. This year the Festival is being held in Aberdeen from 4-9 September. (Phys.org)—Researchers from Scotland suggest that stereotypes form and evolve over time through social transmission of information, similar to the way in which languages evolve. © 2012 Phys.org Citation: Study demonstrates evolution of stereotypes (2012, September 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-evolution-stereotypes.html More information: www.britishscienceassociation. … tishsciencefestival/center_img Explore further More to facial perception than meets the eye This document is subject to copyright.

marriage according to Northwestern University professor Eli Finkel He’s the latest in a spate of authors to try to figure out what our most intimate institution has become now that it’s no longer a precondition for becoming a grownup getting it on ensuring economic security or having kids In his new book The All-or-Nothing Marriage Finkel argues that 21st century spouses seek partners who will bring out their best most authentic selves who can spot potential in their mates and find Michelangelo-like the beautiful sculpture within the block of stone That does not mean today’s spouse is absolved from the conjugal responsibilities of yore We still want security We still want a passionate lover We still want higher-order parenting skills Those come standard “We continue to view our marriage as a central locus of love and passion and we continue to view our home as a haven in a heartless world but … a marriage that achieves those things without also promoting self-expression is insufficient” writes Finkel All-or-Nothing which draws on sages as disparate as Viktor Frankl and Carrie Bradshaw–as well as Finkel’s considerable years of research–likens the history of marriage to the ascent of a Maslow-like mountain of needs and desires At base camp are economic and physical safety thought to be the prehistoric drivers of our desire to pair up At the peak are self-expression and personal growth The problem is that as we have moved higher up the mountain the air has become thinner and couples have needed to work harder to keep going Modern lovers are expected to be each other’s coach therapist and champion while also being vulnerable familiar and playful (See: Kanye and Kim or Kimye whose constant co-burnishing of fame and credentials is a klieg-lit illustration of Finkel’s point) We need to figure out both what our partners need at any given point and how we with our own challenges and quirks might be able to provide it And we have to do all this in the ever decreasing time we spend alone with our beloveds a resource that has been mostly given over to kids work and iSomethings But the rewards at the peak Finkel notes are considerable Those people who can be both Carl Jung and Bear Bryant have better happier more fulfilling unions than any couples in history “Americans [have] made marriage a more fragile institution but they also placed within reach a whole new level of spousal connection” he writes Gamely Finkel even suggests how regular people might reach this marital nirvana His proposals are not as revolutionary as his reframing of coupledom: Try to fight fair be responsive to your other half have fun give your partner the benefit of the doubt occasionally lower your expectations for what your partner can do for you Also for the love of mercy carve out some time just for each other Alas Finkel offers no solutions for the more pernicious forces that are grinding the joy out of pairing up: the lack of family-friendly employment policies the winnowing of stable living-wage jobs for the high school–educated the basic abandonment of the ill and aged to family care It’s hard to reach the top of the mountain when you’re carrying so many other people But at a time when there is little agreement about the purpose future and form of one of our most ancient and primal institutions Finkel’s optimistic data-driven attempt to
