New recruits need patient approach

first_img The 24-year-old keeper and the central defender, 21, were signed by the Magpies from Nottingham Forest in a joint deal for an undisclosed fee in August last year before immediately being loaned back to the Sky Bet Championship club for the season. Then Forest boss Pearce was less than happy with chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi over the deal, which he claims was done behind his back, and the two eventually parted ways in February. Former Newcastle defender Pearce believes the club invested in potential, but potential which may take some time to come to fruition. Pearce told the Journal: “Well, they are both outstanding lads, without question. Their character is first-class. However, I don’t think they are ready yet to go straight into the Premier League. “Both the club and the fans will have to give them time and encouragement. They are potential rather than the finished article. “Darlow more or less played in my first team regularly, but Lascelles not quite so much. He will require a bit more time. “However, from their point of view the move is ideal. They weren’t about to play for a Premier League club staying at Forest, but now hopefully they are. “Though I fell out with the chairman over the deal, I told both lads they were going to a fantastic football club with passionate fans. I knew that from first-hand experience.” However, Pearce believes Forest may still regret allowing the pair to leave when they did. He said: “I had been asked my opinion and I said they should stay for the moment. However, the chairman sold them behind my back. It was his club and his money, so he could do that. I just felt if we had kept them their value would have risen given time.” Stuart Pearce has urged Newcastle fans to be patient with impending arrivals Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles as they attempt to get to grip with the Barclays Premier League. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Jasprit Bumrah suffers another scare as ball hits eye

first_imgNew Delhi: Looks like Jasprit Bumrah and injury scares are going hand in hand in this edition of the Indian Premier League. After hurting himself in the first match of the season against Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium, he was seen with a black spot around his right eye during Saturday’s game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. Speaking to IANS, sources in the know of developments said that the black spot was a result of a ball hitting Bumrah during practice.“He was hit by a ball during training. Luckily, the balls used for fielding are slightly softer and it was just a bruise and there was no serious impact on the eye,” the source said. All eyes have been on the Mumbai Indians pacer as he is not just an integral part of the IPL franchise but also India skipper Virat Kohli’s main weapon in the national set-up. With the World Cup round the corner, every effort has been made to ensure that he doesn’t suffer any injury going into the showpiece event in England.Even after his painful fall in the first game of the season, India physio Patrick Farhat immediately contacted MI physio Nitin Patel to check on the status of Bumrah’s injury even though it was just a shoulder spasm and the pacer was already feeling better by the end of the game.

Architecture class could have real impact

first_imgA group of graduate architecture students are designing a building that could one day become a major landmark in the USC area.The students have been tasked with creating a plan for a theoretical 60,000-square-foot Emeriti Center for Creative Retirement, which would house retired faculty and staff who want to remain close to the university community.Former USC President John Hubbard dedicated the Emeriti Center in 1978, making USC among the first universities to recognize the connection with retired faculty and staff and the school itself. The center’s influence has been curbed, however, because of limited space and not enough offices.The Emeriti Center has moved from various locations over the past 32 years.“We’ve essentially been guests of the School of Gerontology,” Executive Director Janette Brown said in a press release. “When Victor [Regnier] started talking about what it would be like to have real senior housing and development activities on campus, the vision was just so exciting. We literally spent hours talking about it.”Regnier is one of the world’s leading authorities on housing for the elderly and a professor of architecture and gerontology. He has worked on similar projects for the University of Virginia and George Mason University. Regnier, along with Michael Lehrer, a nationally renowned architect based in Los Feliz and part-time instructor at USC, is helping the architecture students decide how to best approach the project.The students are currently considering two potential locations for the project — the corner of McClintock Avenue and Jefferson Boulevard or the corner of Vermont Avenue and Jefferson Boulevard.Their plan includes 24 housing units for retired faculty, six units of housing to attract faculty from other universities who use their sabbaticals to take or teach courses at USC, meeting rooms for lectures and workshops, a mentoring center and a coffee shop to use as a link between retired faculty, students and the greater community, according to the press release.The students’ propositions have earned much support from a panel of current and former USC faculty and staff, including former deans Guilbert Hentschke of the USC Rossier School of Education, Bob Scales of the School of Theatre and Bob Harris of the School of Architecture. Other supporters include current USC Davis School of Gerontology Dean Gerald C. Davison, Emeriti Center Executive Director Brown, USC Davis School professor Jon Pynoos and Jerry Walker, director of the Emeriti Center College, according to the release.Whether or not any of these designs will actually come to fruition remains to be seen.Kristina Raspe, USC’s associate senior vice president for real estate and asset management, commended the students on their efforts and designs. She noted, however, that the university’s main priority is to fit buildings with academic purposes, so it is rather unlikely that any of their designs will be erected on the core campus.“A lot of these creative ideas have a great deal of merit and serve to benefit the community in tremendous ways,” Raspe said. “There were many unique ideas and I was most interested in the ones that work with space outside of USC’s core campus and build a connection with the surrounding area.”last_img read more

Syracuse looks to capitalize better on power-play chances in 2 weekend games against Clarkson

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 23, 2014 at 12:10 am Contact Liam: Jenn Gilligan brings her stick down hard onto the ice, counting down the last five seconds of each Syracuse power play.The junior goalkeeper counts down the remaining seconds, notifying her teammates to start drifting back so the opponent coming from the penalty box doesn’t get a free breakaway upon reentering.As opposed to power plays ending with an Orange goal, Gilligan has had to use her stick to warn her teammates more often than SU would like.Syracuse (1-1-4) has struggled to take advantage of power plays so far this season, scoring only twice despite 25 opportunities. SU hopes to better capitalize on its power-play chances this Friday at 3 p.m. when the team plays the defending national championship team, Clarkson (3-3), at Cheel Arena in Potsdam, New York. The team then returns home to Syracuse to play the Golden Knights again on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Tennity Ice Pavilion.“What we’re going to dwell on in the early going is our percent of conversion and it’s not great,” said head coach Paul Flanagan.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU has tied four games in a row and could use the boost that would come from converting these power plays.In those four ties, the Orange has had 16 power-play chances, resulting in 33 shots and only one goal.“If you look at the nature of our sport, there are a lot of low-scoring games,” said Flanagan. “So I think when you get that — whether it’s a five-on-four, five-on-three or a four-on-three opportunity and you have some open ice, you’ve got to convert. I think if you looked nationally at it, power plays are probably the big thing helping teams succeed.”Flanagan doesn’t believe the team needs to do anything drastic in terms of improving, but does need to refine certain parts of the power play.“We’re trying to get better looking at it on the ice,” said freshman right wing Alysha Burriss. “A few girls will come out early with the coach and work on scoring drills.”Freshman defender Dakota Derrer thinks that the team needs to cycle the puck around more effectively, take its time and then capitalize on what would be a quality shot on net.Burriss and Flanagan both said that the puck has taken some bad bounces, but the team needs to just keep putting in on net. Flanagan added that the team needs to be tough, bear down and convert.Flanagan hopes to address the team’s shortcomings in practice and continue to get better. He believes the team needs to screen the goalie better and take her eyes away from the puck in hopes of slipping a score into the back of the net. Another potential solution to improve scoring is finding a teammate diving hard to the backside of the net while the goalie is occupied on the other end and finding that player for a score.“We need to communicate more and see where everyone is,” said Derrer. “We need to move the puck better and not just throw it away when it’s not there.”Clarkson has allowed only one power-play goal to its opponents through six games this season, something that SU hopes to change headed into the weekend. Flanagan is optimistic for his team’s chances this weekend and feels confident that the team will reverse the power-play trend soon.“I really think we’re moving the puck around pretty well and getting some good bids,” said Flanagan. “I think that’ll take care of itself. The final execution just hasn’t been there, I guess.” Commentslast_img read more

Syracuse capitalizes on Cornell’s mistakes in 6-2 win

first_imgFaith Cain’s hard line drive popped up off the infield dirt and headed toward Cornell shortstop Erin Rockstroh. The ball deflected off Rockstroh’s elbow as her arms shifted up to adjust to the strange hop. The bench erupted as the ball bounced into the outfield while Syracuse head coach Mike Bosch signaled senior first baseman Sydney O’Hara home from second base. What originally appeared to be a routine ground ball turned into an RBI base hit for SU.“If we see the ball down we just try to be aggressive and take the extra base,” O’Hara said.While Cornell (13-28-1, 6-14 Ivy League) was not charged with any errors in the box score, misplayed balls and wild pitches gave Syracuse (31-18, 10-10 Atlantic Coast) the opportunities it needed in a 6-2 victory on Tuesday. In just five innings of play, Syracuse used eight hits to rack up six runs, 0.6 higher than its 5.4 runs per game. Before umpires stopped the game early due to rain puddles in the infield, Syracuse advanced on four wild pitches, including two for runs.Ranked fifth in the conference in stolen bases with 42, Syracuse doesn’t steal the extra base at an alarming rate. In fact, the Orange was 0-for-1 in stolen base attempts on Tuesday. But SU didn’t need to steal bases in its regular season finale. Instead, they were given to them.“It’s a pretty easy decision,” Bosch said. “when you see the ball go to the back stop you can get an extra base out of that.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSecond baseman Alicia Hansen exploited Cornell’s pitching errors in the fourth inning. She began her trip around the bases with a shot up the middle which scored both catcher Alyssa Dewes and centerfielder Toni Martin, while advancing shortstop Sammy Fernandez to third base.On the next pitch, Hansen took her normal lead before darting off as the ball skimmed past the catcher. The ball glided past Cornell’s Olivia Lam once again on the next pitch. This time, the ball tipped her glove and didn’t quite reach the backstop, which forced Fernandez to dodge pitcher Katie Lew’s tag as she slid home. The at-bat finally ended on a fourth straight ball from Lew, allowing O’Hara a free walk to first base.The wild pitches continued. This time the ball sailed high above Lam’s head and Hansen touched home plate standing with no threat of a tag. In five pitches the junior made her way around the bases without the ball being put into play once.“I just try my best to get as an aggressive a lead as I can,” Hansen said. “That way if I see the ball down I can go. If I see it down, right when I see it hit the ground I usually take a few steps. If she blocks it I can still get back, and if it goes by her I’m already half way there.”Syracuse’s four-run fourth inning proved to be the deciding factor of the game. Cornell’s two runs in the fifth inning were not enough to overcome its mistakes in the field, as six different players rounded the bases for Syracuse.All runners developed a similar mentality: just run.

Sullivan cards 62 to lead English Championship by 1

first_img WATCH US LIVE Andy Sullivan carded a blistering 28 on the back nine to sit at the top of a leaderboard filled with home favourites after the second round of the English Championship on Friday.The 2016 Ryder Cup player turned in 34 then made seven birdies on his way home to sign for a 62 and a 14-under total, one shot clear of countryman Laurie Canter and South Africa’s Dean Burmester.England’s Richard Bland, Steven Brown and Andrew Johnston were alongside Welshman Jamie Donaldson in a large group of players at 11 under.Sullivan sandwiched five birdies in a row from the 12th with gains on the 10th and 18th on his back nine at Hanbury Manor. More form like that could have big ramifications for his season.The top 10 players on the European Tour’s mini Order of Merit after the first five events of the U.K. Swing will seal a place in the U.S. Open, with Sullivan having finished fourth at the British Masters two weeks ago.Good finishes this week and over the doubleheader to come at Celtic Manor could secure Sullivan a place at Winged Foot, but he admits he is unsure if he would take up a place in the U.S. Open field in September.“I’m not quite sure of my decision on that yet,” he told ”I will see how I feel. I’m just happy to be back playing golf in the U.K. and on the European Tour.”On his 62, he added: “It was very satisfying.“Yesterday and today were both slow on the front nine and I didn’t get into my flow with the swing and wasn’t moving it the way I wanted to. Then on the back nine I freed up a little bit and got the putter going.

Bellator 213: Ilima-Lei Macfarlane describes journey to headliner in home state

first_imgJoin DAZN and watch Bellator 212 and 213But after the women’s flyweight champion successfully defended her title against Alejandra Lara, via second-round submission, at Bellator 201 in June, Macfarlane did what many fighters still fail to do in 2018 during their post-fight interviews — ask for what they want next. She made an impassioned plea to Bellator officials to make her next title defense in her homeland.Little did the 28-year-old know that plans were already in motion to make it happen. During a media event for Bellator in August, Macfarlane found out her dreams would come true and that she would be defending her belt for second time when she takes on Valerie Letourneau on Saturday, Dec. 15 at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, live and exclusively on DAZN. But the promotion put her through the ringer before she found out the news.”I was actually in New York for the MTV Video Music Awards on the red carpet representing Bellator,” Macfarlane said. “I was trying so hard to get one of the Bellator guys to tell me. I was telling them I was hearing the rumors. People were being very tight-lipped about it all. They did not tell me anything. That fact alone made me have a suspicion because you had to think somebody would tell me. But nobody was giving me anything.”Macfarlane added: “I had my bout agreement signed and I knew I was going to fight Valerie and when the fight would be. The location on the agreement said ‘to be announced.’ That’s never happened before. I always knew where I was going to fight on the bout agreement. So, that felt a little weird. Then, Bellator told me that they would need me to do a media tour before the fight. I asked where they were going to send me. They told me I’d find out the day before I leave. I told them that I needed to know, so I could pack. I asked if it was a tropical climate or in cold weather? They still wouldn’t tell me and said they would email it to me. I opened my email a few hours later and there was my media itinerary and there it said ‘Honolulu.’ I called my dad and screamed to him that I’m coming home to fight.”Becoming perhaps the biggest star in Bellator and one of the best females fighters in the world wasn’t how Macfarlane envisioned her life going. She had wrestled in high school and thought she had put her athletic career in the rearview mirror after competing at the Hawaiian state high school wrestling championships in 2009. While wrestling, Macfarlane had suffered a knee injury, which required her to undergo a couple surgeries. Macfarlane didn’t want to keep having to go through that and put her sporting life to an end.So, she packed up her bags and moved to San Diego to begin her new life. At first, it wasn’t what she envisioned. Macfarlane was working as a waitress at Coco’s restaurant in the San Diego neighborhood of Mission Valley. She had been attending graduate school at San Diego State University to become a teacher. But her life took an unexpected turn.”I decided to walk into this little, random gym on my work called 10th Planet San Diego gym,” Macfarlane remembers. “I told the person at the front desk, which happened to be former UFC title challenger Liz Carmouche, ‘Yeah, I want to lose weight, but I want to do something fun. Not one of those treadmills and be one of those types of people.'”Macfarlane added: “I had a little bit of a wrestling background, so she thought a little bit of ji-jitsu and MMA training would be fun. So, I ended up doing both classes. I walked into my first classes and told them what my background was in. She (Carmouche) told me to take the first classes and see what I think. So, I took my first introductory MMA class. I was so tired after the first class, but it was a lot of fun and it made me want to come back. I signed up right on the spot and the rest is history.”Macfarlane made her amateur debut in 2014 and hasn’t looked back since. She won all five of her fights before having her first professional fight in January 2015.However, making MMA her full-time priority still wasn’t in the cards for “The Ilimanator.” She wanted to stick to her plan and didn’t want to deter from that. But everything changed leading up to her fifth pro fight when she took on Emily Ducote at Bellator 167 in December 2016. After her unanimous decision victory, Macfarlane threw her lifelong plans out the window and came to the realization that MMA was her destiny whether she liked it or not.”I didn’t think I could make MMA a career until after my first Bellator fight against Emily Ducote,” Macfarlane said. “It was a long time. Up until that point, I was in graduate school at San Diego State University to become a teacher. It was never my intention to make this a career. I had considered it a hobby and just a way to get into shape. I wanted to be financially stable to where I could do this full-time and that came after the Ducote fight. I was like, ‘Alright, lets do this. I think I can take this far.’”And Macfarlane has taken her career to another level since making the life-altering decision. She won the inaugural 125-pound belt in a rematch against Ducote at Bellator 186 in November 2017 and then beat Lara almost five and a half months ago. Macfarlane showed her star power in the Lara bout, as the fight averaged 710,000 viewers with a peak of 800,000 viewers. Those numbers led to Bellator 213 happening and Macfarlene being the focal point of the show. “Every day I pinch myself and say, ‘What are you doing? How did I even get here?’” Macfarlane said. “I can’t believe the career that I have especially if you knew me five years ago before I joined the gym. I thought I had my life worked out. I had it figured out who I was supposed to marry. I thought I was about to enter a career that I would have forever. I accepted my life back then. It’s so crazy to see how everything changes.” Heading into the biggest fight of her career, Macfarlane (8-0) knows how people inside and outside of the sport are expecting her to run through Letourneau with relative ease. But she respects what the Canadian has done thus far and expects Bellator 213 to be her toughest test to date. Macfarlane expects a tough, gritty fight — but one that will end with her hand being raised in victory at home, while putting the entire division on notice.Join DAZN and watch Bellator 212 and 213″I really truly believe Valerie is one of the best fighters in the world,” Macfarlane said. “A win over her is definitely going to be validating. I think I’m going to be scary as s— for the other girls in the division because I’m going to be unstoppable if I have a win over Valerie. I’m going to hold this belt for a long-ass time because I don’t see any other girls in the division being on her level.” For about 18 months, Ilima-Lei Macfarlane kept asking Bellator officials when they would be doing a show in her home state of Hawaii, as the promotion had never held an event there. To Macfarlane, it made all the sense in the world because of the rich fight culture of the Aloha State, which also counts UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and former two-division titleholder BJ Penn as native sons.”I had been campaigning for it for about a year and a half,” Macfarlane told Sporting News. “I had been told at a company dinner that it would be hard to do because of logistics.”last_img read more

Pass interference non-call robs Cardinals of extra play against Bucs; NFL fails again with PI review

first_imgThe NFL made clear through nine weeks of the 2019 NFL season it would use its newfound power to overturn pass interference calls or non-calls via replay review only in egregious scenarios that resemble the infamous error in last year’s NFC title game.The missed pass interference on the last play of the Buccaneers’ 30-27 win over the Cardinals on Sunday was not quite Saints-Rams bad, but it was egregious in its own right. With 10 seconds to play and down three points on his own 38-yard line, Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray launched a Hail Mary-esque pass to Pharoh Cooper, who was waiting near Tampa’s 20-yard line. The receiver, though, didn’t have much of a chance to catch the pass thanks to Bucs corner Jamel Dean’s early arrival with his defense. (Watch Cardinals general manager Steve Keim’s reaction to the play; he’s the one in the dark suit in the video below.)Pretty sure Cardinals GM Steve Keim thought it was PI.— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) November 10, 2019Coaches are not allowed to challenge pass interference calls or non-calls under the 2-minute mark in each half, so the Cardinals and coach Kliff Kingsbury were left hoping the league would initiate a review of the play.It did not.ESPN’s Kevin Seifert brought up the NFL’s stance on PI calls relating to Hail Mary plays when asked on Twitter why no flag was thrown and new review was initiated. (There supposedly is a higher standard for PI on such plays.) While this was not a classic Hail Mary attempt into the end zone, a pass interference call would have set up the Cardinals for a makeable field goal attempt to send the game into overtime.Yet this was not an example of a receiver trying to manipulate a defender in an attempt to draw a flag. Cooper went up to catch a jump ball, and to use the NFL’s terminology, Dean “significantly hindered” the Cardinals receiver’s ability to make the catch.The NFL’s officiating Twitter account, which the league often uses to explain calls and non-calls, had not addressed the Cardinals-Bucs play as of early Sunday evening. Kingsbury did not criticize the officiating after the game, saying when asked about the last play, “That was a tough play, but there were a lot of plays before that.”He would have been justified in doing so. This is yet another example of the NFL’s new pass interference replay initiative, supposedly installed to prevent the kind of error seen Sunday in Tampa Bay, being at best disingenuous and at worst a complete joke.The Cardinals on Sunday were robbed of an extra play and, potentially, a win.last_img read more
