Delaney shoots down expansion rumors

Delaney shoots down expansion rumors

first_imgCHICAGO — For a week in late July, speculation ran rampant after a story in the Des Moines Register seemed to imply the Big Ten was actively considering expanding to a 12-team league. Such a move would likely mean splitting the league into two divisions, with divisional champions meeting in a conference championship game.”I think we need to look at [expansion] in the next year,” Big Ten Conference Commissioner Jim Delaney told the newspaper. Although at the time Delaney did not name any possible teams to join the league, that didn’t stop newspaper columnists, message board posters, bloggers or anyone else with an opinion to share, from throwing in their two cents as to which schools may be on the conference’s wish list. At the Big Ten Conference Media Day, July 31, Delaney attempted to dispel much of the talk by saying in the aftermath of the initial report — which he deemed correct — fans and observers misinterpreted his comments and that expansion is not a “front-burner issue.” “It’s interesting that as it gets out there and gets reiterated, you might think the Big Ten is about to expand when that is not the case,” Delaney said. “What I said was every 3-5 years we look at expansion and we will continue to look at it.”Delaney did concede that with the Big Ten Network set to launch Aug. 30, the conference’s approach to expansion may change.”From the television perspective it is a little bit different. … When you have a Big Ten Network, you have more hours to produce games, more room for content,, and you also have a possibly larger base from which to distribute that network.” The last time the Big Ten talked about expansion was in 1999, when the conference tried to entice storied, independent Notre Dame into becoming the league’s 12th school. Notre Dame ended up turning down the offer, and the expansion issue faded from the Big Ten’s agenda. If the conference ever does decide to expand, a school similar to Notre Dame, or Penn State, which joined the Big Ten in 1990, will be the target, Delaney said. When Penn State was added, the conference looked at factors such as academic quality similar to the current member schools, commitment to a broad base of programs, and marketing potential before admitting the school. Delaney did come out strongly against the notion that the league would expand with the purpose of adding a championship game to the football schedule. “We’re not looking for a championship game. If we were looking for a championship game, we would have had one 15 years ago.” Delaney said.Not a “plus”In every college football season as of late, the Bowl Championship Series and the possibility of replacing it with a playoff system similar to every other major sport becomes a major issue. One position seen as a compromise has been the “plus one” model, which would pair the winners of two bowls in a national championship game. Delaney, however, said the conference does not support that idea. “We don’t see how the “plus one” works without seeding, and we don’t see how seeding would work and still maintain the traditional Rose Bowl,” he said. Traditionally, the Rose Bowl is played between the Big Ten champion and the champion of the Pac-10 Conference.Test timeThe Big Ten is joining the national drug testing movement. Delaney announced, beginning this year., 10 percent of athletes in the Big Ten will undergo testing for performance-enhancing drugs. The tests will not look for recreational drugs, and a first positive test will trigger a suspension of one year.last_img read more

Think Like a Neanderthal Child

Think Like a Neanderthal Child

first_imgHow should you stop a child’s tantrum?  Think like a Neanderthal, reports Live Science.  Dr. Harvey Karp, a pediatrician, “sees our little darlings as less-evolved savages driven by instinct and emotion, not thoughtful reasoning, and he suggests it’s our job as parents to civilize them into Homo sapiens.”    It’s fruitless, therefore, to talk like a Homo sapiens to your little cave boy or girl.  Karp suggests you just speak short phrases to the child, like “You are angry,” rather than try to reason with him or her.  To prepare for this, you need to do a mind meld with your evolutionary past: And so parents need not read the history of human evolution to know how to deal with their unruly kids.    All we have to do, even in the middle of the most embarrassing public tantrum, is to reach inside and feel that same frustration and anger with the world, and then bend down and say, as Dr Karp would, “I know just how you feel.”Since Neanderthals supposedly went extinct, it is not clear exactly how Dr. Karp was able to know how they feel.  Reporter Meredith F. Small (anthropologist at Cornell), however, joined in the experience knowingly.  She said, “Apparently, nothing infuriates these little Neanderthals more than Homo sapiens logic.”  How much better to say, “I hear you.  I feel you.”    The article did come to the defense of Neanderthals somewhat:Of course, Dr. Karp maligns Neanderthals by suggesting there were instinctual creatures swayed by emotions rather than thought.  Neanderthals didn’t have language, but they had bigger brains than modern humans and could probably do logic problems with the best of us.    His advice is better couched in the notion that Homo sapiens, and presumably our ancestors, were designed to feel very deeply, and little kids simply want their emotions acknowledged, just like adults.Even with these acknowledgements, though, it is not clear how Small knows that Neanderthals could do logic problems without language, or to what extent her own adult logic was driven by a desire to have her emotions acknowledged.  One thing is clear: she does not believe in intelligent design.  Her phrase “Homo sapiens… were designed” must be interpreted in the light of the “history of human evolution” she referred to later in the article.Remember, this is the same Live Science news site that recently embellished tales of a frog-amander (05/28/2008), told us the platypus holds clues to evolution (05/09/2008) and explained that evolution made us adulterers (03/19/2008) but called the movie Expelled bad in every way (04/07/2008) and called creationism creepy (05/22/2008) and anti-science (05/17/2008).    So now we have the little evolutionist darlings doing mind-melds with people they never met, whose intelligence and parenting skills they know nothing about, and converting their imaginations into bad parenting.  Would any parents of toddlers like to vouch for the effectiveness of Neander-therapy?  If it works on children, why not on heads of state?  After all, Small said that adults have the same needs for acceptance as children.  Why don’t we tell the president of Iran, who is having a little nuclear tantrum right now, that we know just how he feels?    Sometimes debunking the Darwin propagandists is too easy.  All we have to do is quote them.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

R8bn ‘green building’ for Pretoria

R8bn ‘green building’ for Pretoria

first_img20 July 2012 Construction began on the Environmental Affairs Department’s new R8-billion “green building” in Pretoria on Thursday, illustrating South Africa’s determination to move towards a low-carbon economy. It serves as a “green and bold step” which signals a new era in South Africa’s response to climate change, Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa said at the sod-turning ceremony. Molewa predicted it would change the face of the construction industry. “Through this green building we will propel the department above the construction industry players, setting a good example for other organisations and of course for the benefit of the environment and future generations,” she said.‘Bold steps to ensure green output specifications’ The building’s features include rainwater collectors made of recyclable materials; indigenous plants in the landscaping to reduce the need for regular irrigation; and direct access to sunlight and ventilation to reduce electricity and air conditioner usage. “We have, through this investment, taken that bold step which will ensure that our infrastructure can meet green output specifications outlined in our country’s climate change response policy,” Molewa said. “This policy, among others, [encourages] the use of sustainable building materials which promote urban greening, energy and water efficiency.” Project leader Gugu Dingaan of Imvelo Concession Company said the designers had paid careful attention to global trends to ensure that the building met all the requirements in terms of architectural design and landscape. “This building talks to the overall goal of sustainable development and aims at being an example in the field – from the gardens right up to the roof of the building, we have built in environmental design principles,” Dingaan said.An investment in the future With the global economy rapidly transforming to low carbon growth, the green buildings initiative is an investment by government to assist South Africa meets its carbon emissions reduction targets. In South Africa, the building sector accounts for 23% of greenhouse gas emissions, and emissions from the manufacture of the major materials for the building sector amount to 4% of total carbon emissions. Molewa said South Africa had relatively high carbon emissions for a developing country, and new strategies were needed to change this. The country’s green economy strategy has eight focus areas that include green buildings, sustainable transport as well as agriculture and food production. “We anticipate that the urban area around us will become a green hub of creativity of green buildings that will influence corporate and state-owned companies around the country to follow suit,” she said.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — July 10, 2018

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — July 10, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No change in the near-term forecast through the rest of this week, but this morning we are keeping an eye on a couple of new wrinkles for the weekend, and next week. These wrinkles are hinting at some better precipitation chances and totals, but we are not changing our forecast just yet. As always, we are looking for a couple more data points to confirm the need to change, so stay tuned.Today looks very similar to yesterday, meaning we are dry in nearly every part of the state. There may be some heat-based instability and cloud cover in west central or southwest Ohio that can trigger a very isolated shower or two, but it is not enough to really be concerned about at all…just pay attention in those areas this afternoon. Dry weather holds tomorrow through Friday, and temps remain warm. Highs today through Friday to be in the mid to upper 80s statewide,  with a few places making a run at 90. Those temperature ranges are generally 2-5 degrees above normal. Humidity values will stay low today and tomorrow but may start to build later this week. The map at right shows rain potential through Friday.For the weekend, we are keeping our forecast dry. But, this is where wrinkle number 1 comes in. We have a disturbance moving over the great lakes for the weekend. Some models are trying to sweep a little moisture out of this system farther south into northern Indiana through the day Saturday, and late in the day into NW Ohio. . It’s not so much that the track is changing, but more that these models are trying to project a less compact circulation. If moisture were to develop, it would likely stay north of US 30, meaning at least 2/3 of the state sees nothing anyway. The best chances would be later Saturday and Saturday night.  But to be clear, we are not putting more moisture in our forecast at this time, but this will be a feature we look closely at the next two days. Sunday is dry, but humid in our forecast, and that pattern holds into Monday.Our next threat of moisture is still on track to develop Monday night through Wednesday morning. Moisture remains in a .25″-1″ range for the day and a half to 2 day period, coverage around 70%. However, this is where we encounter wrinkle number 2. Models are suggesting we see another surge of moisture and energy Wednesday that lasts into Thursday. This surge would not only bring more rain but could ultimately lead to a strong thunderstorm outbreak statewide on Thursday. While this is at the end of the 10-day window, it would make sense, given the building of warm air over the region up to that point. If our cold front strengthens, thunderstorms would be a potential offshoot. Much like our discussion of wrinkle number one, we are not changing the forecast right now, but giving a heads up as to some potential future moves, if data starts to swing toward this solution. For now, we have rain leaving Wednesday by mid-morning, and sunshine back for Thursday. But, we will update you tomorrow morning.In the 11-16 day window, we move on with more of a basically dry forecast pattern. Strong surface high pressure settles in over the eastern corn belt and controls the flow through at least the 22nd. There is a front looking to sag into the state around the 23rd and 24th, near the end of the extended period. As we alluded to yesterday, if that front holds together, it has potential to bring half to 1” of rain. But, confidence remains low at this point.last_img read more

Baseball Ohio State falls big to Lipscomb in 93 loss Saturday

Baseball Ohio State falls big to Lipscomb in 93 loss Saturday

Ohio State junior Noah West (8) runs towards third base as he scores the first run of the game against the Lipscomb Bison on March 15, 2019 at Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Sal Marandino | For The LanternThe Ohio State baseball team was plagued by sloppy play, as it dropped Game 2 at home to Lipscomb.Ohio State (8-10) fell to Lipscomb (10-7) 9-3. In a game that included 17 walks, Bisons sophomore pitcher Max Habegger provided consistent pitching to keep the Buckeyes at bay to record his second win of the year.  Habegger entered the game in the sixth inning, with Lipscomb leading 5-2. He would go on to strikeout six batters in three innings of work.“Their guys came in and executed and we got out pitched in the backend of the ballgame,” Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. After sophomore starting pitcher Noah Thompson walked five batters and provided the Buckeyes with multiple scoring opportunities, Habegger did not surrender a single walk.“We were offensively in a couple positions where we could’ve made a difference,” Beals said. The Ohio State pitching staff hit two batters and walked 12, the most this season.Beals noted that his team only surrendered four free bases in the win on Friday. Two walks and an error put Ohio State sophomore pitcher Griffan Smith in a one-out jam in the first inning. With the bases loaded, a hard ground ball hit to redshirt junior second baseman Matt Carpenter resulted in a double play to prevent any damage. Three consecutive walks loaded the bases for the Buckeyes with one out in the bottom of the second inning. Thompson struck out the next two batters in order to keep the game scoreless. A diving catch by Lipscomb sophomore center fielder Maddux Houghton kept the game hitless after three innings. After Thompson’s fifth walk of the game, the Buckeyes had the bases loaded for the second time in the game. A sacrifice fly ball by redshirt senior designated hitter Nate Romans broke the deadlock and allowed senior left fielder Brady Cherry to score the first run of the game. Thompson was able to prevent any further damage in the inning. He would finish the game with one run allowed and one hit in four innings pitched.A pair of walks brought Smith’s total up to six walks on the day and put runners on first and second with two outs. A double off the wall in left center field by redshirt senior left fielder Tevin Symonette brought in two runs to take the lead.Symonette scored off a double by senior third baseman Zeke Dodson to increase the score to 3-1 before Smith could record the third out by strikeout to stop the bleeding. Smith would finish the game with three earned runs and two hits in five innings pitched. Coming into the game with only five walks allowed on the season, he walked six against Lipscomb. Ohio State junior right fielder Dominic Canzone was able to bring in junior shortstop Noah West with a sacrifice fly ball to right field, cutting the deficit in half. After a wild pitch allowed another run to score, a blooper to center field by junior catcher Jarrett O’Leary resulted in a single and another run, increasing Lipscomb’s lead to three heading into the bottom of the sixth inning. A one-out double off the wall in right field by West put a runner in scoring position for the Buckeyes. Canzone produced a big two-out triple off the center field wall to make the score 5-3 through seven innings. A silver lining for the Buckeyes came in the eighth inning when senior second baseman Kobie Foppe pinch hit for Romans and recorded his third hit of the season on a two-out single. “I’ll take anything at this point right now. I just want to see something go through. Anything. A little bit of confidence will help out,” Foppe said.Foppe had come into the game hitting only .056 on the season. After a single and a pair of walks loaded the bases with no outs, Lipscomb senior first baseman Cade Sorrells crushed a grand slam down the right field line to balloon the score to 9-3 in the ninth inning. Ohio State and Lipscomb will play for the series at 1:05 p.m. Sunday. read more
