Slightly overshadowed by a few disappointing chants, which could be clearly heard on the pitch, but we showed a great response and ultimately we let the football do the talking.”I think the protocol was effective, and there was less chanting after that. We made a decision at half-time to come out and play the game, which we thought was the right thing to do.” last_img read more

Oklahoma State Honoring Members Of Basketball Program Who Died In Plane Crash 14 Years Ago Today

Posted on by

first_imgOklahoma State honors 2001 plane crash victims.On January 27th, 2001, the Oklahoma State basketball program suffered an unthinkable tragedy when eight members of its family (two players and six staffers and broadcasters) died in a plane crash while returning from a game in Colorado. In the years since that traumatic event, the 10 people who died in the crash –including the pilot and co-pilot–have been memorialized with a banner hanging in the rafters of OSU’s home court, Gallagher-Iba Arena, and a memorial located inside the Athletics Center. Also, each year, at the home game closest to the date of the crash, Oklahoma State honors the 10. This post from the Cowboys’ official athletics Instagram account has all the details on the ceremony before tonight’s game against Baylor: Very touching and appropriate tribute for those whose lives were inexplicably cut short, and it’s incredible to think 14 years has passed since this tragedy happened.last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgMelo Trimble hits game-winning three-pointer as time expires.Melo TrimbleWe just had a Big Ten thriller in Madison. No. 3 Maryland defeated Wisconsin 63-60 on a long three-pointer by point guard Melo Trimble with 1.2 seconds remaining.Trimble’s triple came after Wisconsin’s Bronson Koenig buried a three of a his own to knot the score at 60. Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon elected not to signal for a timeout, instead trusting his All-American point guard to win the game.Good decision.  That shot is the definition of long range. Note ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich saying “Too late” in the background. Dakich thought Trimble took too long before trying to attack.Looks like he knew what he was doing.last_img

BSNL Finance Director replaced amid financial crisis

Posted on by

first_imgNew Delhi: Amidst the acute financial crisis at BSNL, the Department of Telecom (DoT) has handed over the responsibility of the Finance Director at the cash-strapped PSU to current Director Mobile as well as fixed line, Vivek Banzal divesting the charge from Sujata Ray. Official sources said Banzal, who is already holding two key charges, has been given the charge of Finance Director and this was effected by the DoT on February 28. Banzal would now be looking at all the three key wings — fixed line, mobile and finance at BSNL. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in Sep The sources said that the government decides responsibilites and such things were routine and although more realignment of responsibilities were likely to be effected from DoT in BSNL. Ray is slated to retire in April. But it is not clear if any new Finance Director would be appointed shortly or Benzal will be given this post as full time given the poor financial health of the PSU, the post is vital. > Banzal took charge on March first week as Finance Director. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to Customs The reasons for the sudden replacement have not been cited but it was seen in the context of the present cash crunch position of BSNL which is expected to linger on given the low tariff regime and BSNL itself not having full range of services like 4G. Going through its worst financial crisis, BSNL recently failed to pay salaries for the first time in 19 years. With heightened competition unleashed by Jio with low tariffs, BSNL’s revenues have further dried up as it does not have 4G LTE service. Its loss is at Rs 7,999 crore for 2017-18.last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgAbul Maal Abdul MuhithFinance minister AMA Muhith has termed the statement of the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) regarding the country’s banking sector as rubbish, reports UNB.”No, no, no…It’s all rubbish. I have no comment,” he told newsmen as his attention was drawn to the think-tank’s observation following his meeting with the leaders of the Dhaka Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the finance ministry on Sunday.The CPD on Saturday termed 2017 as the year of banking scams saying that a series of scams took place in the country in 2017 which is a result of the finance ministry’s lack of monitoring.The research body believed the scams have a very negative impact on the overall economy and apprehend the banking sector will not be relived from such crisis soon because of the government’s inaction.Criticising the CPD, the finance minister said they uttered not a single word when the biggest scam (Sonali Bank-Hall Mark) took place.”Actually, CPD is busy undermining the achievement in the economic fields.”About the CPD’s allegation that the finance ministry has big lapse in its monitoring, Muhith said, “I have no comment. They never recognised the economic achievements of Bangladesh”.last_img read more

2016 Was Record Year For Houston Home Sales

Posted on by

first_imgDave FehlingHouston area Realtors sold 76,449 homes in 2016, including 6,628 in December.Last year, Realtors sold 76,449 single-family homes in Greater Houston – almost 1,000 more than in 2014, the previous record year, and up 3 percent from 2015.Cindy Hamann, chairman of the Houston Association of Realtors, said many were surprised when the market seemed to stabilize in the first quarter after a below-average 2015.“About April it started picking up and then after the election things started happening,” she said. “I think the consumer was tired of the doom and gloom and tired of the election and everybody got back to business.”Only upper-end homes seemed to be affected by the oil downturn, Hamann said.“Our luxury properties took a dive during the latter part of the summer,” she said. “That’s when oil companies and (other) companies were starting to lay off.”But by the end of the year, the upper-end market had recovered.In December, sales of homes above $500,000 increased 23 percent compared to a year earlier.Hamann expects sales of all homes to increase even more in 2017.

Some Oil Jobs May Not Return Thanks To New Tech Efficiency

Posted on by

first_imgOil companies are becoming increasingly high-tech. It’s in part a response to the downturn: they want more efficient ways of producing and moving oil.But what might that mean for jobs in the industry? After a couple years of losses, energy jobs in Texas are slowly returning. There have been positive job numbers out of Houston and other energy-centric cities, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas says oil and gas jobs grew statewide by 9% in January. But the Dallas Fed is warning those jobs probably won’t return to their levels before the downturn, because now companies are better at doing more with less.“I always say, never underestimate the powers of a petroleum engineer whose job is on the line,” says Economist Jesse Thompson with the Dallas Fed’s Houston branch.“Your workforce is more efficient and the technology is continually improving.”As companies invest more in tech upgrades from the rig to the back office, some jobs will be replaced by automation. But energy consultant Muqsit Ashraf with the Houston firm Accenture says there will also be a greater need for higher-skilled workers.“The profile of the employees will change,” he says, “and there would be a shift in terms of head count on the field, to head count that might be sitting in remote operations centers making decisions.”Ashraf’s firm warns of a “baby boomer brain drain” in the years ahead, with older “petrotechincal” workers leaving the industry and not being replaced by younger hires. The firm says that could spell trouble for companies when the next boom hits. Share X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:15 Listenlast_img read more

G Kaila Charles, Maryland 6-1 Jr. Glenn Dale, Md. ST. LOUIS (USBWA) – For the second straight season, University of Louisville guard Asia Durr has been named USBWA All-American. She joins Angel McCoughtry as the only Louisville players to ever be named USBWA All-American two times.Durr returns to the All-America team, this time as a second-team member after first-team recognition a year ago. Durr finished her career as the two-time ACC Player of the Year averaging 21.2 points per game, the fourth-highest average in school history, and ranks second in career scoring with 2,485 points and 374 made three-pointers.Four senior standouts and a junior repeat member were named to the 2018-19 U.S. Basketball Writers Association Women’s All-America first team.Six different conferences are represented on the team, which for the first time the USBWA composed into three teams to honor 15 players. The Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conferences lead the way with three members each on the combined rosters, with the Atlantic Coast Conference, American Athletic Conference and Big Ten Conferences contributing two apiece. Connecticut and Baylor each have two members on the senior-laden team. Eleven of the 15 members are seniors to go with three juniors and a sophomore.The five first-team selections will contend for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award given to the USBWA’s National Player of the Year. Along with the National Freshman of the Year and National Coach of the Year, the announcement of the winner will come Friday in Tampa. The Ann Meyers Drysdale Award winner will be formally presented with the award at the USBWA College Basketball Awards Dinner on April 15, hosted by the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu is back on the first team as a two-time All-American. Ionescu is the two-time Pac-12 Player of the Year, averaging 19.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 8.2 assists per game, and most recently scored 31 points Sunday against Mississippi State to send the Ducks (33-4) to the Final Four. That game was also the final one for Teaira McCowan, Mississippi State’s first-team center who became MSU’s all-time field goal shooting percentage leader. McCowan averaged 18.4 points and was second nationally at 13.5 rebounds per game and posted 31 double-doubles and 70 in her career.Arike Ogunbowale of Notre Dame and UConn’s Napheesa Collier are also first team members. Ogunbowale, a second-team All-American last year, is one of five Division I players to average more than 20 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals, scoring 20-plus points 21 times to help guide Notre Dame to the ACC regular-season and tournament titles. Collier leads UConn with 21.0 points and 10.8 rebounds per game with 24 double-doubles while shooting 61.5 percent from the field. The AAC’s Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year is UConn’s single-season rebounds record-holder now with 398 and counting this year.Iowa’s Megan Gustafson finishes off the first team after a second-team nod a year ago. The nation’s scoring leader at 27.9 points per game also ranks in the top three nationally in seven other statistical categories, including field goal percentage (1st, 70.1), double-doubles (1st, 33) and rebounds per game (T-2nd, 13.5).Katie Lou Samuelson of UConn and Kalani Brown of Baylor join Durr on the second team. Samuelson, a first-team All-American last year, and Collier, both seniors, have led the Huskies to a 12th consecutive Final Four and are 145-4 in their careers heading into Tampa.Samuelson is second at UConn with 18.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game and leads the team with 86 three-pointers. Samuelson and Collier have combined for 4,708 career points, the most by a pair of classmates in UConn history. Brown, a second-team All-American last year, will likely leave Baylor as its all-time leader in field goal percentage, currently hitting 60.9 percent of her shots. Brown averages 15.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.Texas A&M’s Chennedy Carter made the second team after setting her school’s scoring record at 23.3 points per game, eighth-best in the nation. Carter, the only sophomore on the All-America team, also set five other Texas A&M records this season. Cal’s Kristine Anigwe, a second-teamer and the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, led the nation in rebounding at 16.2 rebounds per game, almost three boards ahead of any other player.Baylor’s Lauren Cox, one of three juniors honored, is Final Four-bound as a third-team member. Cox was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year for a second consecutive season and averages 12.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. The Big 12’s Player of the Year, Bridget Carleton of Iowa State, also earned third-team recognition after leading the Big 12 in scoring with 21.7 points per game, which broke ISU’s season scoring record with 760 points. She ranks in the top five of Iowa State’s record book in five categories.Kaila Charles led Maryland to its fourth Big Ten regular-season title in five years and led the Terps in scoring with 17.5 points per game. She and Gustafson were the only two players to earn unanimous selections to the All-Big Ten first team. Stanford’s Alanna Smith was the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year and led the Cardinal to its 13th Pac-12 Tournament title. The team’s scoring leader at 19.5 points per game also shot 51.5 percent from the field and was one of only two players nationally to average 19.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. Sophie Cunningham closed her Missouri career as its all-time scoring leader with 2,187 points. She ranks in the top four in school history in six other career categories.Following is the complete 2018-19 USBWA Women’s All-America Team: The U.S. Basketball Writers Association, formed in 1956, has named a women’s All-America team since the 1987-88 season.
