first_imgIn a recent memo to its National Federations, the International Triathlon Union (ITU) announced that the 2016 ITU Age Group Sprint World Championships will move from a draft-illegal to draft-legal event.With the change, the draft-legal championship race will follow draft-legal rules. The technical committee, however, will continue to review the rules for age group races throughout the implementation process.A release from ITU noted… ‘While ITU is open to any improvements in the competition formats, there is currently no further discussion on making any changes for Olympic or longer distance age group events.’The release continued to state… ‘While [this is] an adjustment for many athletes, ITU feels this change is more inclusive globally, as age group athletes now have the opportunity to choose to compete in either draft-legal or non-draft legal races at the ITU World Championships. With the opportunity to compete in both styles, it no longer neglects those National Federations who do regularly organize draft legal age group events.’The shift towards draft legal racing amongst age groupers will likely divide athletes. Some may prefer a non-drafting format for the bike leg, in order to play to the strengths of stronger bike riders. Others may welcome the move as it aligns ITU age group racing more closely to the format raced by elites in races such as the ITU World Triathlon Series and ITU World Cup events.www.triathlon.org Relatedlast_img read more

first_imgPacific Standard:Imagine your favorite musician, actor, filmmaker, or painter. Undoubtedly, each one grew up idolizing—emulating, even—their artistic heroes. As such, if you pay close enough attention, it’s not hard to see those influences permeating the artist’s work. But at what point does paying homage to source material become a swindle?For young British crooner Sam Smith, that line was crossed last October when Tom Petty and songwriter Jeff Lynne noticed that Smith’s single “Stay With Me” was too reminiscent of Petty’s 1989 hit “I Won’t Back Down.” (It was announced on Monday that Petty now has a songwriter credit and will receive royalties.) While the two songs have eerily similar choruses, it raises an interesting question: Are artists in these scenarios always deliberately plagiarizing, or is there something subtler, perhaps subconscious, at play?…Throughout the 1990s, Marsh and his colleagues conducted a number of studies on this issue, the most notable of which used the game Boggle to gauge how well people remembered whether they or their partner (in this case a computer) had thought of a specific word. The results of that particular experiment led Marsh and his colleague, Dr. Gordon H. Bower of Stanford University, to recognize an “unambiguous existence of substantial unconscious plagiarism.”Read the whole story: Pacific Standard More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

The most recent onset of illness among cases was Oct 27.Nov 16 CDC update Nov 17, 2010 Humane Society releases egg farm investigationThe Humane Society of the United States today released the findings of a 28-day undercover investigation at a Waelder, Tex., egg farm that the society says shows animal abuse and food safety problems. The farm is owned by Cal-Maine, the nation’s largest egg producer, In a press release, the Humane Society said one of its investigators worked inside the farm through part of November. The group released a written report and video detailing the findings at a press briefing in Washington, DC. It found birds trapped in cage wires, live birds roaming outside cages and falling into manure pits, injured birds with bloody feet and broken legs, overcrowding, and eggs covered in feces and blood. It pointed out studies that suggest Salmonella infections are more common in birds housed in caged systems compared with those in cage-free settings. The Humane Society opposes battery cage confinement methods. Cal-Maine, in a press release today in response to the report, said it has been a leader in implementing animal welfare measures and that all of its facilities comply with existing environmental, health, and safety laws. It said it follows industry animal care guidelines and offers customers a cage-free egg option.

Tegerdine was transported to Central Peninsula Hospital for treatment and told investigators she was “experiencing mechanical issues with the flight controls immediately prior to the crash.” The Federal Aviation Administration Flight Standards Service and National Transportation Security Board were notified and are continuing the investigation. 27-year-old Charley Tegerdine of Sterling was the only person on board the plane, which was seen going down at about 3pm by another pilot. Alaska State Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters… “One plane witnessed another plane go down and then a family member of the other plan that witnessed the plane called. We were able to figure out that the location was at Morgans Landing outside the Sterling area,” said Peters. “There was a sole pilot and it sounds like they were transported to the local hospital.”last_img read more

first_imgJEFF CAPEL, seated next to his wife, Kanika, and children, at a press conference introducing Capel as Pitt’s new men’s basketball coach, March 28. (Photos by Courier photographer J.L. Martello)You’d have to go all the way back to the early 1900s, and even then, that’s not far enough.That’s because it never happened. Until now.Benjamin Printz, Harry Hough, and Wolparth Wegner were the first head coaches in the long and storied history of Pitt men’s basketball. Later, there was “Doc” Carlson, Robert Timmons and Paul Evans. Most recently, it’s the names everyone knows—Ralph Willard, Ben Howland, the slick hair of Jamie Dixon, and the ineptitude of Kevin Stallings.But at an introductory press conference held, March 28, on the same court where the Panthers want to restore their winning ways, they turned to Jeff Capel. He became the first African American head coach in the over 100-year history of Pitt men’s basketball.“We landed a difference-maker,” said Heather Lyke, Pitt’s athletic director, who made the decision to hire Capel.“The plight for Black coaches has been very different from our counterparts, and it’s something that I take very seriously and take with great pride,” Capel said after being asked to elaborate on the distinction at the press conference by New Pittsburgh Courier sports columnist Bill Neal.Capel said his father was friends with “Coach (John) Thompson, Coach (John) Chaney, Coach (Nolan) Richardson, and so those are some of the examples of mentors that I’ve had to look up to, and so I’m excited about that.”Capel later discussed to Neal that he definitely wants to be an example to “especially young African American men. We need a lot of examples, and positive examples, positive role models. There are a lot out there, but you don’t see them all the time, so I understand the position that I’m in,” Capel said. “I just want to be an example, and I do that by being me.”PITT BACK TO PROMINENCE?—Jeff Capel, middle, celebrated as new Pitt men’s basketball coach by university chancellor Patrick Gallagher, left, and athletic director Heather Lyke.Of course, being a Black man wasn’t the primary factor in hiring the next head coach. Like the Pittsburgh Steelers over a decade ago when they searched for the successor to Bill Cowher, Pitt was looking for a great coach, a great role model, a great leader. The Rooney family felt they found those ingredients in Mike Tomlin, who became the Steelers’ first African American head coach.And Pitt feels like they found the same in Capel.“The head coach directly impacts the lives of other people’s children every day. And it is a critical decision,” Lyke said. “I hoped to be able to meet the expectations of what we needed and wanted in a leader for our men’s basketball program, and I was determined not to settle for anything less. And we found that leader in Jeff Capel.”Lyke, herself just over a year into the job as Pitt athletic director, stood in front of what felt like the entire City of Pittsburgh at the March 28 press conference, as she raved about Capel. As Capel’s name and likeness was plastered on the lowered JumboTron, she reeled off Capel’s top qualities in her eyes—insightful, genuine, intensely competitive. “He knows what’s important to him,” she said. “He knows who he is as a leader and a head coach. He knows the importance of sleeping on big decisions, and he knows the impact that a coach can have on young people’s lives every day.”Lyke continued: “I knew he would be selective about where he would coach next. And I want you to know that not only did we choose Coach Capel, but he chose Pitt.”To basketball fans, Capel is a known commodity. The Fayetteville, North Carolina native starred as a guard for Duke University (1993-1997). His father, Jeff Capel II, was the head coach at Old Dominion University. Like father, like son, the young one took an assistant coaching position under his father during the 2000-2001 season. The following year, Capel became an assistant at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Before the 2002 season got underway, Capel was promoted to head coach at VCU, making him at the time the youngest coach in Division 1 (27 years old). He took the program to new heights in his four years as head coach, before heading to the Big 12 Conference to coach the Oklahoma Sooners.Being a coach in a power conference such as the Big 12 really put Capel on the national radar. And he coached a superstar even the casual fans know, in Blake Griffin. The Sooners were regulars in the NCAA Tournament, even advancing to the Elite 8 in 2009.After subsequent back-to-back losing seasons, Capel was fired in March 2011.For the last seven years, Capel has been an assistant coach at his alma mater, Duke. He said one of the best things he learned under legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski was how to truly run a program, from top to bottom.Capel is tasked with figuring out how to run Pitt’s program from out of the darkness. The 2017-18 team did not win a single game in ACC play (0-18 in the regular season). By the letter of the law, Pitt had to be included in the ACC Tournament, but the result was the same—a 67-64 loss, at the hands of Notre Dame. Pitt won eight games the entire season. Stallings was fired March 8. Now it’s Capel’s team. “The very first thing that we will do every day is that we’ll show up…You’re prepared, you’re mentally and physically prepared to show up and to give your best,” Capel said. “We’ll show up in the community, in the classroom and on the court. And we will do everything we can every day to try to get better and to be at our best.“The second thing is that we will keep our promise. I promise you, anyone that’s affiliated with this university…that I will give you everything that I have, every day. I will give you 100 percent of me…I understand that this is not just my program. This is our program, and in order for it to be restored, so to speak, or to get it to where we all want it, then we all have to own it.”Capel, 43, then turned to his players who were in attendance at the press conference. “They’ll get everything that I have—knowledge, love, support, discipline…everything that I have they’ll get that every day, and the only thing I ask is that they give it back to me, they give me 100 percent of themselves.”With the Blue and Gold world watching, Capel continued: “We’re in a great city. We’re in a city that has a lot of pride. The City of Champions, that’s what we’re about, is about building champions. Pitt men’s basketball is going to be about that.”Anyone that watched the Georgetown Hoyas of the ‘80s, led by Patrick Ewing, coached by the legendary John Thompson, knew that team was fearless, and Thompson had the pulse of every player, every tidbit of what went on with his program. Thompson became the first Black head coach to win the NCAA Tournament Championship, as the Hoyas beat Houston in 1984.Ten years later, African American head coach Nolan Richardson and his “40 minutes of Hell” defensive strategy powered Arkansas to a national championship.Then, in 1998, it was Tubby Smith’s turn at Kentucky.In 2014, Kevin Ollie became the fourth African American head coach to win men’s college basketball’s ultimate prize, when he led Connecticut over Kentucky.John Chaney was the epitome of a leader during his endless run at Temple. A Black head coach who was respected in all circles, who also won over 700 games in his collegiate coaching career.What the future holds for Pitt’s newest head man is unknown. But Capel knows one thing that Chaney, Richardson, Thompson and other top coaches never stand for.“There will be no excuses,” Capel told the audience. “We will figure out a way, collectively, to get this done.” Like us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierlast_img read more

first_img Sport EN CEST Luis Enrique’s side now play Valencia on Sunday with the added pressure of having Madrid breathing down their necks, while Atletico could move level with Barça if they beat Granada.  Keylor Navas says Real Madrid “won’t give up” after beating Getafe 5-1 to move within one point of Barcelona.  Title race: We will keep working hard. We won’t give up at any moment and, from here on, let’s see what happens.   16/04/2016 at 18:46 Getafe: It was a complicated game because they are in a difficult situation and came out giving everything, but we did our work well and with the respect that Getafe deserved.  Good form: Things are going well for me, I’m happy. Thanks to God the team has won another game, too. The team did the right things in the majortiy of moves.  Here is what Navas had to say to Canal+ after goals from Karim Benzema, Isco, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo eased Madrid to victory: Manchester City: We have to be happy to be in the Champions League semi-final and respect the rival, who are a great team, but we will try to win. With humility and hard work, everything is possible.  The double: We are Real Madrid and we will give everything [to win Champions League and La Liga]. After that, let’s see what happens.
