Louisville just finished its regular season with a 59-57 victory over No. 2 Virginia at the KFC Yum! Center. What made the Cards’ victory so remarkable was just how they got it done.After Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon put the Cavs up 57-56 on a three-pointer with 16 seconds to play, Louisville had a chance to win it. The Cavaliers doubled UL point guard Terry Rozier off of a pick-and-roll, leaving big man Mangok Mathiang wide-open. Since January 31st, Mathiang had made just one of 16 field goal attempts. He had not attempted a shot in 14 minutes today. Naturally, he swished the foul line jumper off Rozier’s feed like it was second nature.Virginia’s foul-court inbounds pass landed out of bounds, and Rozier finished things off with a free throw. Louisville’s win clinched the No. 4 seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament, and a coveted double-bye into the quarterfinals.All thanks to the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Australia who found his way into the scoring column at the most opportune time.
zoom Operator of liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers GasLog has reported a loss of USD 16.4 million during the three-month period ended September 2016, compared to a profit of USD 4.8 million seen in the same period a year earlier, mainly due to increased financial costs.The company’s revenues increased to USD 120.7 million in the quarter from USD 105.8 million recorded in the corresponding period of 2015, mainly driven by the deliveries of GasLog Greece, GasLog Glasgow, GasLog Geneva to GasLog’s fleet.GasLog’s contracted charter revenues are estimated to increase from USD 412.5 million for the fiscal year 2015 to USD 476.9 million for the fiscal year 2017, based on contracts in effect as of September 30, 2016, without including any extension options.“Our demand outlook for LNG carriers with long-term charters remains positive. We continue to see a number of tenders for multi-year charters for vessels, which we expect will be used to transport volumes from new liquefaction facilities due to commence production over the coming years,” the company said, adding that these new LNG volumes “will create demand for additional ships over and above those available in the market today.”As of September 30, 2016, the total future firm contracted revenue stood at USD 3.51 billion, including the nine vessels owned by GasLog Partners as well as the recent Centrica charter, but excluding the vessels operating in the spot market.Following the quarter-end, GasLog was awarded a seven-year charter by a subsidiary of UK-based utility company Centrica plc commencing in 2019.In conjunction with this charter award, the company entered into a shipbuilding contract with South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries for the construction of the 180,000 cbm LNG carrier, scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2019.“In recent weeks, GasLog added Total and Centrica as long-term customers. We are delighted to broaden our customer base with two leaders in the global energy sector and we look forward to building these relationships as they develop their own LNG businesses,” Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer, said.GasLog has three newbuildings on order at Samsung Heavy Industries and two newbuildings on order at Hyundai Heavy Industries, which are scheduled for deliver in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
FORT NELSON, B.C. – The Fort Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce says it is concerned that the provincial government has not provided members of the public and the business community with enough clarity to make an informed decision in the upcoming referendum on Proportional Representation.During the 2018 BC Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting, BC Chambers voted in favour of a resolution to have a non-partisan panel appointed to look at the likely outcomes of an alternative system prior to issuing a referendum, comparable to the previous Citizens’ Assembly, examining the implications of the proportional representation. In particular, the Chambers say the panel should look at proportional representation’s implications on rural/urban divide.The Chambers also voted in favour of the Province clearly defining the system of proportional representation that is being considered well ahead of any referendum, and to confirm that no changes would be implemented without a clear overall majority with support in each riding. “British Columbians need to be provided with concise, understandable information so as to be able to make an informed decision.” said Bev Vandersteen, Fort Nelson Chamber of Commerce.The Fort Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce said today that it is calling on the provincial government to slow the process down and implement the suggestions proposed by the BC Chamber.

Redshirt-sophomore running back Bri’onte Dunn (25) looks to evade defenders during the 2014 Spring Game April 12 at Ohio Stadium. Gray defeated Scarlet, 17-7.Credit: Mark Batke / For The LanternTo Urban Meyer, the 2014 Ohio State Spring Game wasn’t about statistics, which intrasquad team won or lost, or which side played better as a unit.“It’s more of an individual — I’m not trying to evaluate an offense because who cares?” Meyer said after the Gray team defeated Scarlet, 17-7, Saturday at Ohio Stadium. “There are guys out there that will either never play or they’re not ready to play now.”With players like starting senior quarterback Braxton Miller, senior tight end Jeff Heuerman, a skill guy like sophomore H-Back Dontre Wilson and even starting offensive lineman junior Taylor Decker not seeing a single snap during the game, it was clear Meyer was more interested in how much he was going to get out of some inexperienced players.“I’m not evaluating — like (OSU spokesman) Jerry (Emig) hands me stats and I’m not sure what to do with these. I don’t care,” Meyer said.Individually, the final stats for those players who actually saw time Saturday weren’t exactly impressive. The two quarterbacks who started and played the majority of the game — redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones, who Meyer named backup to Miller after the game, and redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett — combined to throw for just 277 yards and no passing touchdowns. No ball carrier had more than 55 yards on the ground, but redshirt-sophomore running backs Warren Ball and Bri’onte Dunn both managed to find the end zone for the Gray team.“I was just talking with Cardale out there and you are so used to 14 practices playing with the same guys and that chemistry started through spring and there were a lot of new faces,” Decker said after the game about playing with players who might not see time this fall. “You start to develop a lot of chemistry and there were guys flipping sides, playing both ways so that makes it a little difficult when you are not used to playing with somebody, but that’s not excuse. You still have to go out there and execute and do your job at the highest level.”After having a solid Spring Game a year ago, redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas performed well again and led Gray with six receptions and 64 yards, while redshirt-junior receiver Corey Smith snagged five passes from Jones for 72 yards. Senior wide receivers Devin Smith and Evan Spencer hardly saw the field at all — Spencer is still rehabbing from an injury suffered in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl, and Smith played sparingly — but Meyer still wasn’t pleased with what he saw from the unit specifically.“Not enough,” Meyer said of the wide receivers’ efforts Saturday. “Without a doubt with what we expect, we’re not where we need to be. We’re better than we were two years ago … (a) notch (better) than we were last year. We got a ways to go.”Another question mark for the Buckeyes was what the pecking order will be at running back next season after losing Carlos Hyde, who in the 2013 season became the first running back under Meyer to eclipse the 1,000-yard plateau.The expected favorite before spring practice was sophomore Ezekiel Elliott, who often came in to let Hyde rest last year. Other candidates include Dunn and Ball as well redshirt-senior Rod Smith. Smith sat out the last half of spring practice — including the Spring Game — as Meyer said “he’s focusing on academics.”“We have some depth there right now,” Meyer said. “But still it’s pretty much … I’m not ready to name a starter yet.”Dunn said after the game no matter who is at the top of the list, his mindset doesn’t change.“Every day I’m just going to work hard. I’m going to work hard,” Dunn said. “Everybody in my unit, in the running back unit, is like my brother. Whoever gets the (top) spot is going to deserve that spot.”So with no clear-cut starter at running back or wide receiver, and backup quarterbacks who struggled in a defensive-minded affair as playmakers were split up between both teams, what exactly was the 2014 Spring Game about?“What I do care is who is physically going to make the plays. This is more of, it’s almost like an individual game today and that’s what I wanted to watch,” Meyer said. “Who’s going to compete, who’s going to make plays, not who’s going to fit into the team concept because we all know what we saw out there. That’s not team, that’s not the Ohio State Buckeyes. That’s a bunch of people all over the place.”After reconvening later this summer for training camp, the Buckeyes are set to take on Navy in the first game of their 2014 campaign Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.Kickoff is scheduled for noon.
Colin Gay and Wyatt Crosher discuss Kaleb Wesson’s entry into the 2019 NBA Draft and why he is not ready to make that jump, as well as what to look for in Ohio State football’s upcoming Spring Game. From Garrett Wilson to Justin Fields to a possible new position on the defense, maybe this year it will be more than a glorified practice? (Probably not though.)
Alan Stubbs has dropped warning for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, saying that he ‘be careful who he listens to’ as he settles into life as Rangers boss.Gerrard started the Premiership outing in controversial fashion last weekend, after which he said his team’s 1-1 draw at Aberdeen showed that ‘the world is against us’, adding that refereeing decisions have been going against Rangers ‘for seasons’.The early red card given to Alfredo Morelos was the spark for Gerrard’s complaint, however, the red card has now been downgraded to yellow card, which now leaves the striker free to play against Stubbs’ St Mirren side on Sunday.Stubbs who was Everton’s centre-back frequently clashed with Gerrard during Merseyside derbies says the former Liverpool captain will learn quickly during his first job in management.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

He was brilliant.‘I think he’s dealing with management well. He just needs to be careful who he listens to. He is certainly a strong enough character to make his own mind up. Even when I’ve spoken to him away from football, he has always known what he wanted to do.
More than 1,000 events were scheduled nationwide. Many people attended beach cleanups or information sessions, while others made art installations and attended ocean-themed exhibitions. In Homer, Jodee Lynn, founder of the Alaskan Ocean Cleanup Crew in Homer hosts events weekly: “I moved here two years ago and I had the intention when I moved up here to do something for the environment, and I really wanted to do something with the ocean in particular. Since I started the group I’ve had people contact me, and coming out to help clean the beaches. At our last event we got a lot of trash.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享World Oceans Day aims to raise awareness with a series of events.
