Mens basketball Battle of two 35 Big Ten teams Ohio State –

Members of the Ohio State men’s basketball team huddle before the start of the second half versus Northwestern on Jan. 22 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assistant Sports EditorIn late February 2016, Ohio State took down No. 9 Iowa to stay afloat in the NCAA tournament picture. The Hawkeyes choked down the stretch, losing four of its final five games to finish 12-6 in the Big Ten. Iowa then lost in the first round of the Big Ten tournament to Illinois.The Hawkeyes enter Saturday’s contest versus the Buckeyes having lost three in a row after beginning Big Ten play 3-2. OSU started the conference slate 0-4 but finds itself in the same place as Iowa — one of six teams tied at 3-5 in the Big Ten.Since the two teams last met, both rosters have seen great turnover, but in different ways, after they each had disappointing finishes to the season. Nonetheless, Iowa and OSU are both fighting for a crucial win in conference play in Iowa City.IowaCoach Fran McCaffery had to replace four starters from last year’s roster. The lone returning starter is senior guard Peter Jok, who leads the Big Ten with 21 points per game.“He’s a big-time scorer,” said junior forward Jae’Sean Tate. “He’s been a big-time scorer since I’ve been in college. We’re not going to change anything we do. We’re still going to guard the ball, play Ohio State defense. But we’re going to try to dock him, make him uncomfortable.”For the four starters alongside Jok, McCaffery has yet to settle on a lineup. Eight different Hawkeyes, excluding Jok, have started at least six of the 21 games in 2016-17. Down 16 at the beginning of the second half on Wednesday at Illinois, McCaffery switched 80 percent of his starters. Freshmen Jordan Bohannon, Isaiah Moss, Tyler Cook and Cordell Pemsl were replaced by sophomores Nicholas Baer, Ahmad Wagner and Christian Williams, as well as freshman Ryan Kriener.The Hawkeyes lost 76-64.Iowa sits at No. 96 in the KenPom advanced-statistical ratings. OSU and Iowa are identical in adjusted offensive efficiency, averaging 110.2 per 100 possessions. However, the Hawkeyes rank third in conference averaging more than 80 points per game and third in total rebounds with 39.4 per contest.Losing four starters is certainly a challenge to a coach, and often times the defense is what drops off the most. For Iowa, its defense is without a doubt its greatest weakness.The Hawkeyes are last in the Big Ten in scoring defense and opponent rebounding, allowing 78.2 points and 38.7 rebounds per game. However, at home, Iowa allows 75 points compared to 82 points away from Iowa City.Cook is the only other player for Iowa that averages double figures with 11.9 points. Jok leads the Hawkeyes in points, assists, steals and 3-point field goal percentage.The GameThe Buckeyes arguably put together its most complete game of the season on Wednesday against Minnesota, something the team is trying to build on.“I would say (the Minnesota game is) just a stepping stone,” Tate said. “Like I said, this year, there’s been multiple times that you’ve seen us play at the level we’re supposed to play at all the time. I think we did that against Minnesota, but we still didn’t do it for the whole 40 minutes.”Redshirt junior center Trevor Thompson and senior forward Marc Loving led the team with 19 points a piece — a career high for Thompson. It was the former Virginia Tech transfer’s seventh double-double this season, which is the most for an OSU big man since Jared Sullinger had 17 in the 2011-2012 season. Expect Thompson to register his eighth against Iowa. One thing OSU has had difficulty with is keeping possession. Turnovers have cost the Buckeyes a few games this year and will need to tighten up against McCaffery who likes to implement a half-court trap and 3-2 zone at points in the game.“It’s just, it’s a matter of whatever they throw at us we’ve got to know exactly what we’re doing and get the best shot we possibly can,” OSU coach Thad Matta said.OSU has played completely different away from home this season, and Matta said he has about given up trying to figure out why his guys don’t engage into the action from the get-go. He said his team has to become more consistent in every aspect of the game.Iowa will likely go on a few runs in the first half, but OSU’s rebounding should be the difference in the game and allow OSU to have more scoring chances than the Hawkeyes.Prediction: Ohio State – 76, Iowa – 72Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. read more

Geek Answers Why doesnt the whole Earth solidify

first_imgNo matter how much you slacked through elementary science class, you probably remember at least a bit about the Earth’s great cross-section. There’s the crust (that’s our turf), and directly below that the mantle, just 5 to 70 kilometers below our feet, depending. This is the thickest portion of the Earth, and though it’s technically not molten, it’s hot enough to make its silicate rocks malleable, causing it to flow over the course of millions of years. Beneath this is the planet’s molten outer core, a sea of mostly iron and nickel that has remained liquid for billions of years. And finally, there is the inner core, a solid mass of the heaviest elements on Earth. The inner core is speculated to contain large amounts of gold and platinum, among other things — if only we could get to it.So, why isn’t the whole thing solid? After so many billions of years of waiting, you’d think the world would have cooled off by now — and yet the mantle remains partially plastic, the outer core totally molten, and even the inner core is incredibly hot, if too stubborn to liquify.The Earth has managed to keep even heavy metals molten for billions of years.The most obvious part of the explanation is simply the ground beneath your feet. As the Earth began to cool in its earliest stages of development, the crust formed on the exterior and acted as a mild insulator for the interior. With a solid layer on top, the circulation of material below stopped exposing portions of that material to the atmosphere, letting it hold on to its heat much more effectively.Beyond that, it’s necessary to point out the fact that, in reality, a few billion years really isn’t all that long. The majority of heat in the Earth is, quite simply, left over from its early stages, and has yet to escape. The Earth is constantly cooling, as evidenced by the fact that the planet’s current two-phase core, solid interior surrounded by liquid exterior, was originally entirely liquid. As iron solidifies it actually becomes more dense (unlike water), meaning two things: the cooler portions of molten iron tend to sink and eventually aggregate into the solid inner core, and that as the whole core cools it actually shrinks.Radioactive decay of elements like this Potassium 40 atom is a major source of heat in the Earth.This core shrinking is partially responsible for some types of earthquakes, at least indirectly. One reason it takes so long to form a solid interior (the solid core is still much smaller than the liquid) is that the deeper you go, the greater the pressure. At the Earth’s center, pressures reach 360,000,000,000 Pascals, or 3,552,923 times the pressure at sea level. As you might imagine, this makes it difficult to solidify; cooler iron sinks deeper, where higher pressure heats them up again. Eventually the process will complete, but not for a long, long time. The estimated rate of cooling is 100 degrees Celsius per billion years.The biggest source of heat below the Earth’s crust, however, is less intuitive: radioactive decay. The elements Potassium, Uranium, and Thorium all exist in high amounts as unstable isotopes with long half-lives. The energy released by the slow decay of these huge metal deposits is enough to keep heavy metal molten. Even the comparatively stable surface minerals do this — a block of granite will emit a small but measurable amount of heat thanks to these very same forces.Ultimately, the Earth’s molten interior is the product of many factors. Just be happy it is the way it is, since a cold planet is also a death planet. Don’t worry though; long before the Earth cools and dies, our Sun will have swallowed it whole.last_img read more

Pope accepts resignation of Chile cardinal over sex abuse cases

first_img By Hayley Halpin 9,393 Views Pope accepts resignation of Chile cardinal over sex abuse cases Ricardo Ezzati, archbishop of Santiago, is the highest-ranking Catholic official in Chile. Ricardo Ezzati Image: Alessandra Tarantino via PA Images Saturday 23 Mar 2019, 5:52 PM https://jrnl.ie/4557661 Short URL Ricardo Ezzaticenter_img Image: Alessandra Tarantino via PA Images No Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article POPE FRANCIS HAS accepted the resignation of a Chilean cardinal who has agreed to step down along with his country’s bishops over sex abuse cases and their cover-up. Ricardo Ezzati, archbishop of Santiago, is the highest-ranking Catholic official in Chile. He is the seventh senior Chilean church official to resign over a scandal which the Pope insists must be remedied.To date, Ezzati has maintained his right to silence. However, he has promised to cooperate with the investigation into his activities – if the authorities first clear him, insisting he is innocent. The decision comes with Chilean media reporting that the nation’s Court of Appeal had yesterday confirmed he would face trial for not denouncing sexual abuse by three priests.On Tuesday, Pope Francis rejected the resignation of French Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, who is convicted of a sex abuse cover-up. Barbarin has appealed this decision. A Lyon court ruled earlier this month that Barbarin was guilty of failing to report allegations of abuse of boy scouts committed by a priest, Bernard Preynat, in the 1980s and 1990s.Earlier this month, disgraced Australian Cardinal George Pell also received a jail term for sexual abusing two choirboys. Pell (77) has maintained his innocence and says he plans to appeal his conviction on five offences including oral rape and molestation of the boys in 1996-1997.These cases comes as the Pope has been seeing to restore faith in the Catholic Church following a slew of abuse scandals across the world, including in Australia, Chile and the United States.Includes reporting by © AFP, 2019 Share10 Tweet Email Mar 23rd 2019, 5:52 PM last_img read more

850 million property project in receivership

first_imgOne of the Gold Coast’s biggest property projects, the $850 million Oracle development, has been placed in the hands of receivers by its directors, according to Smart Company reports. The twin tower development, which included 505 luxury apartments, a resort, retail and commercial office space, was being developed by a subsidiary of the Niecon Group, run by well-known Queensland property developers, the Nikiforides family. Another Niceon development on the Gold Coast, the $90 million Nirvana by the Sea project, was also placed in the hands of receivers earlier this week. Mark Mentha and Mark Korda of KordaMentha have been placed in charge of The Oracle and plan to continue operating the complex. The resort is up and running and the retail precinct has just opened. KordaMentha’s head of property Berrick Wilson said the receivers would “continue to support and enhance the development” as they go about the process of settling apartment sales. “The vast majority have been pre-sold and we will be working through the settlement process to deliver purchasers their apartments,” Wilson said in a statement. “The financiers have funded the development to give certainty to the completion of the project and we expect pre-sale purchasers to honour their contractual obligations.” The Gold Coast has been shaken by the collapse of a number of high-profiled projects after the last two years, as heavily leveraged developers were caught out by the Global Financial Crisis. Niecon chief executive Con Nikiforides told the Gold Coast Bulletin earlier this week that his company was disappointed by the decision to appoint receivers to the Nirvana by the Sea development, and blamed the decision of lender BOS International to appoint receivers on the Irish banking crisis. BOS International’s parent, Lloyds Banking Group, has large exposures to the debt-stricken nation. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Dici 2030 plusieurs régions françaises pourraient être privées deau

first_imgD’ici 2030, plusieurs régions françaises pourraient être privées d’eau Selon un rapport du centre d’analyse stratégique, d’ici 2030, plusieurs régions françaises pourraient manquer d’eau. Les trois bassins les plus sérieusement concernés se situent dans les régions de la Seine-Normandie, de l’Adour-Garonne et du Rhône-Méditerranée. D’après une récente étude du centre d’analyse stratégique (CAS), l’équilibre existant entre nos besoins en eau et les ressources hydriques disponibles pourrait bien être bouleversé dans plusieurs régions de France d’ici 2030. Même si l’eau reste une ressource relativement abondante sur notre territoire, la France, comme le reste de la planète, subit les effets du réchauffement climatique. “Depuis 1980, la hausse des températures estivales est de 2,3 °C en moyenne, avec une forte croissance de la variabilité, et l’évapotranspiration en plaine a augmenté de 20 % à 30 %. En revanche, on ne note pas d’évolution des précipitations moyennes annuelles, même si des tendances significatives (hausse ou baisse) apparaissent à l’échelle saisonnière”, révèle le CAS. Toujours selon le rapport rendu par le CAS, le réchauffement climatique pourrait affecter le débit de certains cours d’eau dans différentes régions françaises. D’ici 2030, certains territoires pourraient manquer d’eau. Il s’agit notamment des régions qui connaissent déjà des “déficits chroniques” en été et à l’automne. A noter qu’il existe un important déséquilibre dans le rapport entre les besoins et les ressources. En Île-de-France, les prélèvements d’eau destinés à la consommation sont particulièrement conséquents. Dans le sud-ouest, et notamment le bassin de l’Adour-Garonne, les ressources en eau sont réparties de manière illégale. La population vit majoritairement sur des plaines fluviales et une forte croissance démographique devrait avoir lieu d’ici 2050, alors que le débit de la Garonne en période d’étiage devrait baisser de 20 à 40 %. Enfin, le Rhône, même s’il est considéré comme le fleuve français le plus puissant, pourrait bien montrer des signes de faiblesse dans les années à venir. “Sa capacité future à satisfaire tous les usages”, serait mise en doute selon le rapport du CAS. “Une multiplication des usages préleveurs sur le Rhône et ses affluents” pourrait avoir un impact sur le débit annuel moyen du Rhône qui pourrait baisser de 14 à 36 % d’ici 2050.Suite à ce constat, le rapport du CAS préconise d’”améliorer le conseil et l’accompagnement des agriculteurs afin de favoriser le développement de systèmes de cultures plus résistants à la sécheresse et qui s’appuient sur des techniques agricoles économes en eau”, et invite aussi à “encourager plus avant les collectivités locales à réduire les fuites dans les réseaux et le gaspillage d’eau potable” ainsi qu’ à “étudier dès à présent des solutions de sécurisation de l’approvisionnement en eau (barrages, réutilisation des eaux usées, etc.) pour certaines zones présentant des risques de pénurie d’eau”.Le 6 avril 2013 à 15:49 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Democratic Presidential Candidates Court Women Of Color At Houston Forum

first_img Share Gabriel C. Pérez/KUTAttendees cheer at the start of the She the People forum in Houston on Wednesday.Eight Democratic presidential candidates participated in the She the People presidential forum at Texas Southern University in Houston on Wednesday. The event was billed as the “first-ever presidential forum focused on women of color” – a key demographic within the Democratic Party.Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren individually took questions from moderators and an audience of 1,700 people on a range of topics, including “social, racial, economic and gender justice.”Aimee Allison, the founder of She the People and a moderator at the event, said the forum was a test of which candidates stand “for and with” women of color.“The candidate that does that best and most consistently will win the nomination and the White House in 2020,” she said.When asked why women of color should vote for them, here’s what the candidates had to say:New Jersey Sen. Cory BookerGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“As a man who was raised by a strong black woman, who understood and taught me from my very earliest of ages the debt that I owe – we in America – owe a debt to the championship and the leadership and the activism of women of color.”Former San Antonio Mayor Julian CastroGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“I am only here because of two very strong women of color – my grandmother, Victoria, who came from Mexico when she was 7 … My mom was able to become the first one to graduate from high school and then go on to college and she raised my brother and I as a single parent. And so I grew up seeing both the struggles and the promise of two strong women of color.”U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of HawaiiGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“Coming from Hawaii, [I] have a unique experience that I bring to the forefront and that I feel is so strongly needed in this country now.”California Sen. Kamala HarrisGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“Because of my track record my entire life of focusing on women of color.”  Minnesota Sen. Amy KlobucharGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“What I can tell you is that my entire life I have fought for justice.”Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of TexasGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“Showing up, listening, incorporating what I hear – everyone’s experiences – into this campaign, into our service, is how I hope to earn the support and the vote of the people of this country.”Vermont Sen. Bernie SandersGabriel C. Pérez/KUT“Look at my record and look at what I have campaigned on.”Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth WarrenGabriel C. Pérez/KUTWarren was not directly asked why women of color should vote for her. But when asked what she would say to people who are interested in her, but afraid to vote for a woman, she replied:“Are we going to show up for people that we didn’t actually believe in but because we were too afraid to do anything else? That’s not who we are. That is not how we are going to do this.”‘The Shopping Phase’Before the event, Eesha Pandit of Houston said she really valued the “political power of women of color.”Pandit said she was excited the forum wsa aimed at this demographic, which she described as the most “progressive” voting bloc. She said she thinks candidates often don’t pay close attention to their needs.She said she hoped the event would help her decide whom to support.“I’m definitely in the shopping phase,” she said. “I really want to hear what they have to say.”“I don’t think a candidate can win the election in 2020 without the vote of immigrant women, Latina women and women of color in general,” another attendee, Sulma Arias of Virginia, said. “I think our voting bloc and our voices can no longer be ignored.”Gabriel C. Pérez/KUTAimee Allison, the founder of She the People, kicks off the forum to discuss issues aimed at women of color.Allison told NPR’s Morning Edition earlier in the day that there’s no path to victory for any of the candidates without the support of women of color.“This is the first time women of color have been organized as a political force,” she said, adding that the demographic makes up 1 in 5 primary voters, and 1 in 4 voters in swing states.This post has been updated.

In Seduction Howard Hughes Hollywood no haven

first_imgIn ‘Seduction,’ Howard Hughes’ Hollywood no haven for women “Seduction: Sex, Lies, and Stardom in Howard Hughes’s Hollywood” (Custom House), by Karina LongworthHollywood history for the #MeToo movement, Karina Longworth’s “Seduction” is an astute and entertaining takedown of the movie industry, the press and the multimillionaire turned wannabe filmmaker Howard Hughes. Hardly anyone emerges from the pages of “Seduction” unblemished by selfishness and greed once they are touched by the movie business and its promise of wealth, power and fame.If that promise was kept, it was mainly for the benefit of men even though, as Longworth writes, women were integral to the rise of the movies. Her book recounts what happened to some of the many, many women who fell into the orbit of Hughes, for better and often for worse.Howard Hughes is remembered today, more than four decades after his death, as a weirdly eccentric, incredibly wealthy man living in seclusion in the penthouse of a Las Vegas hotel. Or as the oddball character Leonardo DiCaprio played in 2004’s “The Aviator.” But for many years, mainly in the 1930s and 1940s, the press presented Hughes as a handsome if shy heir to an oil industry fortune, a creative maverick behind the camera, or an innovative and daring aviator — at times all three. The mental illness that appeared to gain on him as the years went by was hidden or downplayed as quirkiness.The better story for readers and listeners in those years of economic depression and war was how practically every beautiful young actress was on Hughes’ arm at one time or another. That was certainly the image he sought to convey — and the public ate it up with the help of his publicists and a lazy, compliant and sometimes paid-off news media. In his day Hughes didn’t have to point and shout “fake news!” because he was too busy manufacturing it.The women seduced by Hughes apparently bought the ballyhoo. After all, the only two movies he directed, “Hell’s Angels” and “The Outlaw,” were troubled productions, scorned by many critics and challenged to return their over-the-top costs even with good ticket sales. Most of the two dozen others that he had a hand in producing also showed poor judgment and oversight. Exceptions like 1932’s gangster classic “Scarface” are outweighed by numerous embarrassments on the order of “The Conqueror” (1956), which famously miscast John Wayne as a young Genghis Khan.As Longworth makes clear, Hughes and so many other men in filmmaking used their clout to seduce women who wanted to make movies, too. Untold numbers of actresses were sold the idea that they, too, could become stars, an unrealistic expectation fostered by the press as well as the movie industry.Hughes, who sought to control every aspect of his life, habitually put young actresses under personal contract with the promise of a shot at stardom. In some cases he promised marriage, even proposing to one woman while engaged to another and nightclubbing with a third. Whether they were already engaged or even married didn’t matter. His penchant for brunettes — Ava Gardner, Jane Russell, Yvonne De Carlo, Linda Darnell, Faith Domergue and Jean Peters, among others — could have stymied a witness at a police lineup. He did manage to find time for Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe and other blondes.Soon enough, the women discovered there might not be more to a Hughes contract than a paycheque. Some never even met him. Often, he didn’t allow a “discovery” to work for years. Domergue, for example, was under contract to Hughes for seven years and appeared in just two films. Escaping him could require emotional stamina and no small amount of court action.The mind games and sex games that permeated Hughes’ movie career help make “Seduction” an engaging read. But don’t let that overshadow Longworth’s real focus — not so much Hughes but what it was like to be a woman in Hollywood back then. The women were pretty, the times were not.

Improved targeted care for autistic children

first_imgThe cabinet on Wednesday gave the green light for a centre to fully assess and evaluate children with autism and to create independent homes for disabled people.Speaking after a cabinet session, Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou said the operation of the evaluation centre for autistic children will aim to offer specialised services and support to families and the children themselves.The centre will be housed at the Christos Stelios Ioannou Foundation, while a daycare centre for autistic children will also be created.The centre will cost around €700,000 a year to run.She also announced the creation of five to ten communal houses catering for people with disabilities where they can be offered all necessary services.This, she explained, is a new scheme designed to integrate people with serious disabilities into assisted-living programmes and is particularly aimed at adults with special needs.The cost of operating each house has been estimated at around €300,000, the minister said, adding that both schemes can be co-financed by the European Social fund.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
