first_imgThe College GameDay crew in Columbus Ohio.ESPN College GameDayAfter serving as the host of ESPN’s College GameDay for 25 years, Chris Fowler has moved on to focus on his duties as play-by-play announcer for ABC/ESPN’s prime time Saturday night games. While Rece Davis should fill in admirably, GameDay definitely won’t be the same. To pay tribute to Fowler, GameDay put together an amazing feature piece, narrated by Tom Rinaldi. After the piece, Fowler joined his old GameDay crew, and Davis, on stage. Things got pretty emotional when Fowler discussed his relationship with Lee Corso, who he spent all 25 years with on the show. He even gave Corso a kiss on the cheek.It is getting a bit dusty in here this morning. We’ll miss you, Chris.last_img read more

Kentuckys Chances Of Going Undefeated Are Now 37 Percent

For the past three weeks or so, we’ve been tracking the odds that the Kentucky Wildcats can pull off a truly remarkable feat: becoming the first men’s NCAA Division I basketball team to finish a season undefeated since Bob Knight’s Indiana Hoosiers did so in 1976. Since the Wildcats just beat the Florida Gators in their SEC Tournament matchup on Friday, we thought we’d update the odds1As a refresher, to compute these probabilities we plug Ken Pomeroy’s Pythagorean power ratings into the Log 5 formula, then simulate both the SEC Tournament and the most likely NCAA Tournament bracket (seeded according to the aggregate bracket projection found at BracketMatrix.com) 10,000 times apiece. to reflect their 32-0 record.Kentucky’s chances of going undefeated still aren’t quite 40 percent, much less 50-50. The Wildcats did enter the Final Four undefeated in about 66 percent of our simulations, but the biggest obstacles to their undefeated bid will likely await them in Indianapolis. Even if they make it to that point unscathed, their probability of joining the Hoosiers among the ranks of the unbeaten would be just a shade over 56 percent.Kentucky may be a mere eight wins away from immortality, but they still have a lot of work left to do. read more

Bangladeshi peacekeepers renovate S Sudan football fields

first_imgUNMISS is contributing to the third National Unity Day in Juba by means of its Bangladeshi Engineering Contingent, which is renovating football fields in the capital.Bangladesh’s engineering contingent in South Sudan has been tasked with renovation of football fields to be used for a variety of National Unity Day activities.The Bangladeshi peacekeepers are contributing to youthful festivities, under the umbrella of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).The mission said it is supporting this year’s annual National Unity Day by renovating four football fields in Juba.”Hundreds of youths from across the country will get together for sports and other activities to promote inter-ethnic interaction and a spirit of fair play and peace.,” the mission said in a news release.The opening ceremony of the event will be held at the Juba Football Stadium on 27 January and it will end on 4 February.According to the news release, work has already begun on the pitch in Juba-One, with the fields of Buluk, Zahra and St. Paul’s to follow.Officer-in-charge of some of the engineering work, Lieutenant Masud, says the tasks of the contingent will include the grading and levelling of the football grounds, as well as digging drains along their perimeters.Lemor William Joseph, assistant director for youth, training and innovation, a component of the culture, youth and sports ministry of that country, appreciated the efforts of the UN peacekeeping mission.“Actually it is a very great work that UNMISS is doing for us, because really to renovate these fields would have been very expensive,” he said.The Japan International Cooperation Agency, JICA, will finance the logistics of bringing the participating youths to the National Unity Day.During the 2017 edition of the National Unity Day, approximately 500 boys and girls from twelve towns from across South Sudan and Abyei participated in football and athletics competitions.This year youths from all of the states of the country are expected to take part.last_img read more

Texas Senate School Safety Committee Recommends Focusing on Mental Health Avoids Gun

first_img Share Rachel Zein for The Texas TribuneLeft to right: State Sens. Kelly Hancock, R-North Richland Hills, Eddie Lucio Jr., D-Brownville, and John Whitmire, D-Houston, at the second day of hearings held by the Senate Select Committee on Violence in Schools and School Security on June 12, 2018.A special Texas Senate committee devoted to fighting school violence has recommended improving mental health resources for students and increasing funding for a program that arms some members of school staff, but shied away from any measures aiming to limit access to guns.Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a Republican, formed the Senate Select Committee on Violence in Schools and School Security following the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School south of Houston. Committee members heard testimony during four meetings in June and July on ways to improve school safety infrastructure, address mental health issues among students and consider controversial “red flag” policies that would take guns away from those deemed a risk to others.Several of the committee’s recommendations focused on “hardening” schools, adding funding for metal detectors and other security apparatuses on campuses. The committee also recommended that the state explore increasing financing for school marshal programs, which allow certified staffers to have access to firearms in schools. During its public hearings, committee members heard testimony that marshal programs can strain school budgets, since they require training and lockboxes for guns. The committee hopes to alleviate that strain with state funds, though it didn’t give specific dollar amounts for any of its recommendations.The recommendations were in line with Republican Gov. Greg Abbott‘s proposal to expand the school marshal program, included in a 44-page school safety action plan he released soon after the Santa Fe shooting.School marshal programs are one of two ways the state allows schools to arm teachers. School districts can also allocate “guardians” who can carry firearms in schools without a minimum amount of training. The committee recommended considering a minimum training requirement for school guardians.A proposal raised by state Sen. Don Huffines, R-Dallas, during the committee’s June 12 meeting to arm school staff with rifles was not in the recommendations.Committee members also pushed for increased mental health resources for students, including expanding mental health first aid training for school staff who interact with students and videoconferencing psychiatric help to students who wouldn’t otherwise have access to mental health professionals.Testimony from counselors and school social workers showed a pattern of schools using counselors for administrative work. Committee members recommended considering legislation that would enumerate counselor duties. They also proposed looking into ways to make counselors more accessible to students, particularly in rural areas with fewer school personnel.Stephanie Rubin, CEO of advocacy and research group Texans Care for Children, lauded the focus on mental health care, but expressed concern at the report’s lack of specific methods to implement its recommendations. In a statement released soon after the report, Rubin said the Legislature will still have to work out several of the details in the upcoming session in 2019 for any substantive change to occur.“We hope state leaders build on these efforts and take real action, with meaningful increases in state funding, to support student mental health,” the statement said.The committee did not recommend the implementation of “red flag” laws, which Abbott proposed in his school safety recommendations but Patrick has fiercely challenged. Instead, members proposed clarifying legislation on whether people convicted of domestic violence can own firearms to begin with and on returning guns to people who have been detained but declared not to be a risk to themselves or others.That drew a rebuke from Mike Collier, the Democrat who is challenging Patrick for lieutenant governor.“Red flag laws work, and the only language in this report regarding red flag laws is the recommendation to clarify current statutes,” Collier said in a statement.last_img read more

Mumbais iconic music store Rhythm House to shut shop

first_imgYoungsters browsing through the latest rock album, an elderly couple searching for a devotional track and a tourist hunting for his favourite piece of Indian music -on any day this can be a close description for the city’s iconic music store, the Rhythm House.Except, it is the beginning of the end for the 67-year-old place which is slated to shut shop in 2016.Situated in south Mumbai, nestled between Kala Ghoda and Jehangir Art Gallery, Rhythm House was established in 1948. Also Read – Punjab on alert after release of excess water from Bhakra damKnown for its extremely rich and diverse collection of music and movies, the store was so popular it was often frequented by personalities like Mumtaz, Shammi Kapoor, A R Rahman, Rahul Sharma and Zakir Hussain.This was, however, before the illegal music downloads on Internet became a norm, which led to the decision by owners to shut down by end of February, next year.“It saddens us to inform you the time has come for us to bid goodbye to the music and video business for reasons that need no elaboration. We are the last of our city’s large format music and video stores to yield to the challenges posed by new technologies and piracy,” it says on the shop’s website. Ajay Parmar, who has been working in Rhythm House for over a decade is now looking at a blank future ahead of the shop’s closure. Also Read – Union Min doubts ‘vote count’ in Bareilly, seeks probe“We all are extremely sad. I have worked here for 12 years, and now I need to look for other jobs. The knowledge of music which I had accumulated over the years will go to waste. Where can I possibly use this knowledge now?” he says. The store withstood the forever dynamic market – from selling vending 78 rpm lacquered disc, LP vinyl disc, cassettes in the initial years, to comfortably adapting to the arrival of compact disc, VCDs, DVDs and even the newest optical Blu-Ray discs. But it seems the Internet age, with consumers downloading music at their finger tips, which served the final blow for the store.“Internet downloads and piracy has killed everything. What can we possibly do about that. Online shopping lacks the one on one interaction we have here at our store. You can’t get that anywhere else,” says Parmar.The store, which had a staff strength of 45, two years ago, now has almost 30 people. Even though the period from December-February has always been a “peak season”, the only crowd the store is witnessing this time is that of loyal patrons, coming to take in the last few days of the place.“A lot has changed over the years. The public has stopped coming to the store. Even today when there is a heavy sale going on, not many new people are coming. I have seen this place grow, to watch it in this state is sad,” says Raees, an employee at the store for nearly 20 years.last_img read more
