Buckeyes move to 230 behind Sullingers 10th doubledouble

Michigan arrived in Columbus not the least bit intimidated by the No. 1-ranked, undefeated Ohio State men’s basketball team. The Wolverines stood toe-to-toe with the Buckeyes for most of the game Thursday night, but despite trailing at halftime, OSU showed exactly how it’s managed the second-best start in program history. “Ohio State is really good,” Wolverine coach John Beilein said. “There’s a reason they’re undefeated.” On the shoulders of freshman Jared Sullinger’s 10th double-double of the season, OSU (23-0, 10-0 Big Ten) bested unranked but feisty Michigan (13-10, 3-7 Big Ten), 62-53. Sullinger played all 40 minutes, scoring 19 points and grabbing 15 rebounds to lead the Buckeyes to victory. OSU jumped out to a quick lead, beginning the game with a 7-0 run, but the Wolverines were in no mood to let the Buckeyes blow them out early. A 3-pointer from junior guard Zack Novak tied the game at 14-14 with 11:39 to go in the first half. Four minutes later, a jumper from junior guard Stu Douglass gave the Wolverines their first lead, 20-19. The Buckeyes regained the lead, but back-to-back Michigan buckets to close the half put OSU down, 26-23, at the break. It was just the fourth time all season the Buckeyes have been trailing at halftime, and they entered the locker room with 10 turnovers and shooting just 36 percent from the field. “That’s not Ohio State basketball,” freshman point guard Aaron Craft said of the Buckeyes’ offensive struggles in the first 20 minutes. “That’s not what we’ve been doing all year to get us in the position we’re at.” A basket from redshirt freshman forward Jordan Morgan gave the Wolverines a 30-24 lead early in the second half, but two 3-pointers from junior guard William Buford tied the game, 30-30, and ignited the sellout crowd at the Schottenstein Center. With his first points of the game, senior forward David Lighty gave the Buckeyes a two-point lead with just less than 14 minutes remaining. The Wolverines quickly tied it, but a 7-0 Buckeye run, capped with a Lighty free throw, gave OSU a 44-36 lead with 9:37 to go. Again, however, Michigan answered. Back-to-back 3-pointers from freshmen Evan Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. cut the Buckeye lead to two. But Sullinger’s eight points over the next five minutes fueled a 10-3 OSU run that gave the Buckeyes a 54-45 lead, their largest of the game to that point, with less than three minutes remaining. “In the second half we took our intensity to another level,” Sullinger said. “We know it’s Michigan, and we know they’re going to give us their best shot. On top of that it’s a rivalry, so we just had to take it to another level.” After struggling through the first half, OSU shot 54 percent from the field in the second, and ended the game on an 18-9 run to earn the nine-point victory. Buford finished with 13 points, including three 3-pointers. Lighty and senior guard Jon Diebler added nine points apiece. The win, despite the seemingly comfortable margin of victory, was yet another game that perhaps could have gone either way down the stretch. The close games, Buford said, are simply what comes with a No. 1 ranking and will only help the Buckeyes in the long run. “We know every team is going to come after us,” Buford said. “We’re the No. 1 team in the country. They’re giving us their best shot, and we’re taking people’s best punches right now so when we get to the tournament we’ll be prepared.” OSU coach Thad Matta is happy as long as his team keeps winning, regardless of how close the games are. “It’s amazing, and I keep saying this just looking across college basketball,” Matta said. “There are great players, there are great coaches and to be sitting here today 23-0 and 10-0 in the Big Ten is something else.” The Buckeyes travel to Minneapolis to play No. 18 Minnesota at 2 p.m. Sunday. read more

Michigan falls to Louisville in title game

Buckeye fans won’t have to worry about their archrival celebrating a national championship in basketball this season. The Michigan Wolverines fell Monday night to the Louisville Cardinals, 82-76, in the national championship game. Louisville became the eighth school to win three, or more, national championships and coach Rick Pitino becomes the first coach in history to win a national title at two different schools. In a fast-paced game that saw a combined 158 points, the game came down to the fight in the paint. Louisville’s sophomore forward Chane Behanan made a big impact during the second half, with 12 rebounds that eventually wore down a perimeter oriented Wolverine team. Coming into the game, it was thought that standout freshman forward Mitch McGary would handle the inside for Michigan. However, it was the Cardinals who played with an increased physicality, including eight rebounds and three blocks from junior center Gorgui Dieng. It can also be said that the game was won by the Cardinals well before the second half as they withstood an Wolverine run from an unlikely source. Freshman point guard Spike Albrecht averages 1.8 points per game and saw sporadic playing time during the tournament, but the young guard exploded with a bevy of threes and dropped 17 points in his first 16 minutes of play to give Michigan a 12-point lead at 33-21. With 11:09 to play in the first half, Michigan sophomore guard Trey Burke was hit with his second foul. Michigan coach John Beilein made a crucial decision to sit his star point-guard for the remainder of the first half. The Cardinals capitalized on Burke’s absence by turning up the pressure and going on a run of their own. Louisville junior guard Luke Hancock hit four 3-pointers down the stretch of the first half to whittle the Michigan lead down to one. Louisville carried the momentum through the second half to bring the national title back to the Bluegrass State for a second consecutive season after Kentucky won the national championship last season. The Wolverines were not able to bring the Big Ten a national championship on a year where the conference was considered by many to be the strongest in college basketball. Some Buckeye fans reluctantly pulled for the Wolverines in a display of conference pride, but the Cardinals were just too tough and experienced for their opponents. Hancock was named Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four after two breakout performances. The transfer from George Mason dropped 20 much needed points in the national semifinal against Wichita State, before adding another 22 off the bench in Monday’s title game. read more

FA charge Jurgen Klopp for postmatch comments on referee

first_imgLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been formally charged by the English Football Association (FA) for his post-match comments against West Ham on February 4.The German was heavily critical of referee Kevin Friend at the end of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against West Ham at the London Stadium.It marked the Reds’ second successive draw and handed title rivals Manchester City the chance to leapfrog them into top spot of the Premier League, albeit having played a game more.Sadio Mane had given Liverpool the lead in the match with a questionable goal that had James Milner seemingly offside during the build-up to the opener.Due to this, Klopp suggested that Friend had favoured West Ham in the 50-50 decisions during the second half despite it only taking the hosts six minutes to get back level through Michail Antonio.“There were so many situations where it was 50-50 or 60-40… [he gave a] free-kick for the other team,” Klopp told Sky Sports.“As a human being, I know if I make a big mistake in the first half, I don’t want to open the gap even more.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.But the FA were not amused with Klopp’s comments, which breaches the Rule E3, and have now formally charged him.“Jurgen Klopp has today been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3,” read a FA statement.“It is alleged that comments he made in a post-match interview following Liverpool’s league game against West Ham United on February 4, 2019, breached Rule E3(1) as they questioned the integrity of the match referee and/or implied bias.”Klopp will have until Monday evening at 7:00 PM (CET) to answer to the FA’s charge.The 51-year-old is currently in Marbella, Spain, at a training camp as Liverpool prepare for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash against Bayern Munich at Anfield next Tuesday night.The Reds will then take on rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford five days later in the Premier League.LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND – JANUARY 19: Sadio Mane of Liverpool celebrates with teammates after scoring his sides fourth goal during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Crystal Palace at Anfield on January 19, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Public Hearing On Hospital Boundary In Homer This Evening

first_imgBagley:“since hospital service area boundaries should reflect the usage of the communities they serve, it makes sense to examine them periodically to allow for changes.” Residents of Ninilchik tend to use CPH more often than SPH, and so shouldn’t have to pay the higher mill rate for the South Peninsula Hospital Service Area, according to the ordinance. The common boundary between the two hospital service areas has, since their inception, crossed the Sterling Highway at the Clam Gulch Tower, which is about 14.5 miles closer to Central Peninsula Hospital (“CPH”) than the roadway midpoint. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will be holding a special session this evening, in Homer, on a proposal to move the boundary between Central Peninsula Hospital and South Peninsula Hospital.center_img The ordinance was introduced by Assembly member Dale Bagley: “It can be safely assumed that the vast majority of the people living in the Ninilchik area and north to the current boundary routinely use CPH instead of SPH. In my view, those people should not pay taxes for the SKPHSA which are much higher than taxes paid for the CKPHSA. I believe this is an issue of fairness. The line between the CKPHSA and the SKPHSA should be moved to the south side of Ninilchik.” Central Peninsula residents can call in to testify during the meeting in Homer this evening, at 6pm, by calling 714-2169.last_img read more

Indias little Poland

first_imgThis is a story of a long ago. When World War II left Poland ravaged and thousands of Polish people homeless, about 1000 children from war-torn, occupied Poland and Soviet prison camps in Stalin’s Siberia, travelled all the way to India, where Jam Sahib, Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji Jadeja of Nawanagar, nephew of famous Indian cricketer Ranjitsinhji Vibhaji of  the Jadeja clan, a princely state in the Kathiawar Peninsula, took personal risks to make arrangements at a time when the world was at war and India was struggling for its independence. He built a camp for them in a place called Balachadi beside his summer palace, 25 km from his capital city Jamnagar. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The children stayed in the camp for four years (1942 to 1946), picking up pieces of their lives, making happy memories till they got to reunite with their family and friends when Polish history reached peaceful times.After years, documentary film maker, Anu Radha and Sumit Osmand Shaw have got The Survivors of Balachadi, as they like to call themselves, together, to make a heart-touching piece of narrative A Little Poland in India. The 52-miute film has been co-produced between the governments of India and Poland under audio-visual agreement between both countries; co-produced by Doordarshan, Government of Gujarat and National Audiovisual Institute and TVP (Telewizja Polska) from Poland.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe script and the research is by Anu Radha.

Joachim Stephan Advertisingbased OTT videoondem

first_imgJoachim StephanAdvertising-based OTT video-on-demand is seeing significant growth and attracting more attention than subscription OTT video, according to Joachim Stephan, senior partner and managing director, The Boston Consulting Group.Speaking at the Cable Congress in Warsaw yesterday, Stephan said that all of the increase in video consumption by consumers is going to non-linear online and mobile platforms.“Traditional pay TV is going down,” he said. “Europe is not as extreme [as the US] but is also going in the same direction. But what is more interesting is how the economics are flowing to the OTT world. A couple of months ago the general industry assumption was that the model would be subscription. But increasingly advertising is going to the OTT world and funding advertising VoD.”Stephan also said there was an ongoing collapse in the value of “filler content”, meaning content that is “caught between hit content and exclusive sports on one side, and niche content” on the other side. “The [value of] content in the middle is going to collapse,” he said.Disruption of the current video business could take the form of gradual evolution, said Stephan. Pay TV providers believe that online video is just another technical development and operators need to work out how to deal with it. On the other hand cable MSOs and DTH providers could “basically decide that the future is the combination and curation of the consumer video experience within or beyond a walled garden.” Operators would provide value through a compelling user experience and search features, and focus on making money from broadband.A third scenario would see big content providers could invest in exclusive content and market it direct-to-consumers. “I don’t think this will be the predominant strategy.” he said.Finally, it is possible that big internet companies can act as digital aggregators and compete with infrastructure-based players.“The outcome is likely to be a blend of two or three of these scenarios,” said Stephan. “But if only a [few] people adopt one of these the industry is going to change.”The pay TV industry was not massively disruptive when it appeared by comparison with the coming wave of direct-to-consumer online video, said Stephan. “the online video value chain is the trigger for much more disruptive change,” he said, “The question is whether this is value creating or value destructive.”Video-ready broadband infrastructure is already around, with most European homes likely to have video-ready broadband by 2017, he said. Changes in consumer behaviour include more video viewing, a shift in viewing habits to on-demand and cord-cutting of traditional services.The content production business is also changing, said Stephan, with costs relatively low for mobile content and short-form content.Stephan said that US$531 billion “is at stake” in the content business, which is at the centre of changes taking place across multiple “value chains”.last_img read more

This  is a milestone for us. We continue to produce documentaries, and I have to say I am more and more enthused by our prospective slate. The other fantastic development has been our ongoing rollout of HBO Go, which is now in most of our markets.  We continue to work on our multi-language, multi-device software, and it will be a very strong tool going forward.

Most significant industry development I would say the political implosion of News Corp. Shocking – and if it’s all true, then it’s all overdue.Goals for next year On the original production front we will increase volume and begin to produce truly local stories. For HBO Go we will be rolling out our multiple screens and handling more and more devices, like connected TVs.Industry challenges and opportunities Continuing to understand and regulate what all of the OTT changes are doing to the monetization of content.  The Netflix changes are a good example of this – when studios and channel providers begin to realize that in the pursuit of short term cash they are wrecking their long term business model.  We are still trying to find the right business structures for the future – it’s both the challenge and the opportunity.Alternative career choice I am sure I would have liked to work in cartoon animation.  If I could have had a teeny tiny role animating a Pixar film, I would have been very happy. 

TV character most identified with Nyusha from the Russian terrestrial station CTC’s cartoon Smeshariki.  This is a little animated pink pig who is the pivotal girl in the cartoon.  She is overly busy, a romantic daydreamer, and eats far too many sweets… As a result, her life is full of tragi-comic and unintended consequences!Most admired personality Angela Merkel and Christine Lagarde.  I admire women who can make it so far.  I can only imagine how they have managed their positions and their families.
