Syracuse cross country’s Paige Stoner hopes to burst onto ACC scene after transfer

Posted on by

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ As Paige Stoner set high school record after high school record, Division I schools began to notice her. They tried to sell her on the power of their cross country programs.But Stoner had other plans. She wanted to be a nurse.She immediately ruled out some of the biggest names that contacted her as a result, including a short inquiry from Syracuse.“Yeah, I guess I shot (Syracuse) down,” Stoner said. “It’s kind of ironic, I guess.”Stoner, a junior, transferred to Syracuse from Lipscomb — a Nashville, Tennessee school with a nursing program, which SU lacks, before the spring 2016 semester. She decided to pursue elementary education instead of nursing. At Lipscomb, Stoner proved that her high school success was not overblown by finishing as a member of the All-Atlantic Sun Conference first team.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s coaches saw Stoner’s talent at Lipscomb and thought her achievements could carry over to a Power 5 conference. Despite an ankle injury that derailed her sophomore season, the Orange took Stoner in, even though it meant she’d redshirt her first semester at SU.“She was a transfer, and we usually don’t go after those,” Syracuse head coach Chris Fox said, “but we looked her up and said, ‘Wow, she’s really good.’ We knew she could help us.”Courtesy of SU AthleticsStoner has been impressing her coaches at all levels since she first began running competitively.She finished her high school career at Pottsville Area (Pennsylvania) High School as one of the most decorated runners in the school’s history. She holds almost every major girl’s cross country record at the school.“Her determination never wavered, in a training run, in a race, it was always there,” said Barbara McGinley, her high school head coach. “Her sophomore year she won the district gold for us. The top two were neck-and-neck to the finish line and she just shifted to another gear. That was a wow moment.”SU junior Mary Malone had been distant friends with Stoner for years before they became teammates. The two grew up in Pennsylvania and ran together in field races when Stoner began running competitively.When Stoner decided to transfer to Syracuse, Malone was one of the first people she called. Malone made Stoner’s transition to the Orange easy, even becoming her roommate.“She takes every workout seriously,” Malone said, “she just has a pure love of running.”Now that Stoner is in uniform for the first time at Syracuse, the Orange has high hopes for her. With one race already under her belt, Fox is thinking big.“If we finish top 10 to 15, a lot of it will be on Paige to run well,” Fox said. “She has a really good chance to be an All-ACC runner this year and hopefully by the time she’s done here she’ll be an All-American.” Comments Published on October 12, 2016 at 11:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @MikeJMcClearylast_img read more

Kurtenbach: Chase Center proved it could get loud in Warriors’ opener

Posted on by

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors tried their best to bring the Oracle Arena atmosphere to the other side of the Bay, they really did.And some of those efforts were validated in Thursday’s regular-season debut.The verdict: the new place can get pretty loud — if you give the fans a reason to get loud.It’s no Oracle Arena — not yet. And while I doubt it will ever reach those levels of ear-drum-ringing, goosebump-inducing, downright-disorienting noise, the Warriors will always have a noteworthy …last_img

Australian international fares down 8pc in 2016

Posted on by

first_imgInternational airfares to and from Australia fell by about 8 per cent in real terms in 2016 but an airline industry group has warned rising fees could endanger the bonanza.The Board of Airline Representatives of Australia, which represents 32 international airlines, said real airfares to and from Australia had fallen by almost 40 per cent since 2006.“in 1994, an economy flight from Sydney to Singapore cost about $A2300 in today’s terms,’’ the group said. “Now the same flight ranges from $A320 to $A720.’’Drawing on data from the International Air Transport Association and sources such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics, BARA found overseas visitor trips had grown by 2.4 million over 11 years while the number of overseas trips taken by Australians had grown by 4.9 million over the same period.It said the growth in passenger volumes to and from Australia had benefited from the sustained reduction in real international airfares as well as income growth.Real average air fares had dropped by 38 per cent for Australians heading outbound and 34 per cent for overseas visitors to the country, the group’s analysis found.Airfares are largely affected by the amount of capacity and competition in a market, including the presence of low-cost carriers, but many airlines have also worked hard to improve productivity in recent years.BARA executive director Barry Abrams said competition ensured that productivity improvements at airlines were passed through to passengers but he warned the industry could not keep cutting airfares indefinitely, particularly in an environment where other aviation fees were increasing.An annual report by the Australian Competition and  Consumer Commission recently found that  Australia’s biggest airports were recovering substantially more aeronautical revenue per passenger than a decade ago as they moved to offset increased costs per passenger and grow profit margins.The ACCC estimated that over the past decade, the nation’s four biggest airports had collected $A1.57 billion more in revenue from airlines than they would otherwise have collected if average prices were held constant in real terms.   “Infrastructure charges and everything else can’t keep going up if you want to maintain airfare affordability and support that downward trend that we have,’’  Abrams told AirlineRatings.“With the continual modernisation of aircraft and the efficiency of flight and these sorts of initiatives, there’s still an underlying productivity trend within the airlines.“The question then is will the fees and the charges and the increases from everybody else going to start overwhelming that efficiency trend.’’International airfares to and from Australia fell by about 8 per cent in real terms in 2016, according to an airline industry group.last_img read more

Hacker Poll: What Do You Think of Oracle’s Decision to Drop Support for Ruby in NetBeans?

Posted on by

first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Last week Oracle announced it will discontinue support for Ruby in NetBeans. RedMonk’s Michael Coté doesn’t think it’s a big deal. “NetBeans was a nice tool, but it wasn’t the lynch-pin of success for that community,” he writes. “There’s a wide array of free and commercial tools out there that developers love using.”Coté thinks that Oracle’s withdrawal of support is motivated by a lack of revenue from supporting Ruby. “Arguably, growing the ruby community helps Oracle grow the sales pie for MySQL (which they also now own), but I’m not sure that’d be big enough or a direct enough correlation for the money-minded Oracle decision makers,” he writes.However, as analysts are urging enterprises to look elsewhere for a programming language, it’s not hard to see Oracle’s move as signaling something deeper about Oracle’s relationship to the developer community in general and to the open source community in particular. What do you think?Also, are you a Ruby developer using NetBeans? If so, what IDE are you going to move to? klint finley Related Posts Tags:#hack#Polls center_img How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

Nova Scotias cap and trade needs targets to be effective committee told

Posted on by

first_imgHALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s proposed cap and trade regime must have declining emissions caps in order to be effective, the legislature’s law amendments committee was told Monday.Proposed amendments to the province’s Environment Act don’t set caps yet, for a system that is expected to begin in late 2018.“The caps must be declining and must represent a reduction in greenhouse gases when compared with the business as usual case here in Nova Scotia,” said Stephen Thomas of the Ecology Action Centre.The province has already met Canada’s target of a 30-per-cent reduction in emissions from 2005 levels by 2030.When it introduced the legislation last month, government officials said the goal would be to set declining greenhouse gas caps each year until 2022 that would correspond to projected emissions levels resulting from the federal government setting a carbon price that will rise to $50 a tonne by 2022.That price will be set at $10 a tonne beginning next year.“If we have caps that are set too high or that are not declining the system won’t be effective,” Thomas later told reporters.Halifax renewable energy consultant Daniel Roscoe of Roswall Inc. agreed — and said caps should be set over and above 2030 targets.“I think it is wise for us to continue to make improvements even if they are minor over time, and use a system like this so that our economy gets used to growth that is unhinged from emissions,” said Roscoe, who was the only industry representative at the hearing.The committee sent the bill back to the legislature, where it will now go through committee of the whole and third reading before becoming law.It rejected proposed amendments from the Affordable Energy Coalition on the money raised through the Green Fund to be established through the legislation. The fund would support climate change initiatives and innovations.The coalition asked that 20 per cent of the fund be used to support greenhouse gas reductions that directly benefit low- and moderate-income Nova Scotians, and that half the fund be used to assist low- and moderate-income households in offsetting the costs of the cap and trade program.Brian Gifford, the coalition’s chairman, told the committee that in order to do that, emission credits that are currently to be offered at no cost to industry through so-called allowances be auctioned off instead.“Our belief is the only thing that will actually be effective in terms of generating funds for the Green Fund and also for creating incentives for lowering greenhouse gas emissions is to actually auction off the allowances,” Gifford said.last_img read more

Fox Temple Renovating and Expanding to Historic 1810 Liacouras Walk

One…October 5, 2017In “Featured Region” The Temple University Board of Trustees and the Philadelphia Historical Commission have passed Fox School of Business’s proposal to renovate and utilize 1810 Liacouras Walk. The renovations to the building, which stands next to Temple’s Alter Hall, are scheduled to begin this month.The new building will provide over 77,000 square feet of space for Temple’s expanding student body. Though the inside of 1810 Liacouras Walk will see significant changes, including another floor and an atrium, the front of the building will remain unchanged. The facade is protected, since it is technically a part of Philadelphia’s Park Avenue Historic District.1810 Liacouras Walk is one of the oldest buildings on the Temple campus, as it was built at the turn of the nineteenth century. It was initially a group of row homes intended for the community outside of Temple. After the university bought 1810, the homes served various uses, including women’s dorms in the 1970s. Since 1810 is certified as historic by the city of Philadelphia, it could not be torn down, even when it began to decay. In light of this, Temple left the facade and modernized both the inside and the back of the structure. The additional renovations, however, will create significant classroom space, while increasing the convenience of accessing Temple’s renowned Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute (IEI), which will be setting up shop on the first floor.“The growth of our student body and our faculty is a testament to the momentum of our school and the rankings our academic programs have attained,” said M. Moshe Porat, Dean of the Fox School of Business, “The space at 1810 Liacouras Walk will support our commitment to several other academic pillars, and improve the accessibility of the services we provide.”Completion of the project is slated for the fall semester of 2018, which lines up with the school’s 100th anniversary.last_img read more
