Syracuse loses to Georgia Tech on 2nd-straight walk-off

first_img Published on April 27, 2019 at 5:17 pm Contact Anthony: [email protected] Syracuse entered the bottom of the seventh inning in the exact same position as it did on Friday — tied with Georgia Tech. On Saturday, the Orange were looking to avenge a walk-off from the previous day.But SU was handed the same fate. Junior Alexa Romero entered for sophomore Sophie Dandola in the pitcher’s circle, and she was unable to record an out. GT’s Breanna Roper earned a walk and took second on an error by catcher Gianna Carideo. Roper then scored following back-to-back Yellow Jacket singles. Roper’s run gave Georgia Tech (29-23, 10-10 Atlantic Coast) an 8-7 win over Syracuse (20-27, 8-12). Syracuse jumped on top in the first inning, when first baseman Alex Acevedo singled in Alicia Hansen. Lailoni Mayfield came to the plate with a chance to double the lead with Acevedo on second, but she struck out swinging.After consecutive effective outings, sophomore pitcher Miranda Hearn started the game for SU. Unlike those previous outings, Hearn struggled with her control. She walked four batters and allowed six runs, only two earned. The Yellow Jackets grabbed a 2-1 lead by the end of the opening inning. The next time through the order, though, the top of the lineup delivered for Syracuse. Hansen launched a three-run home run to left-center field to give SU a 4-2 lead.GT answered again. The Yellow Jackets’ Kaylee Ellebracht doubled down the line in left to score two more runners and tie the game. After Alexis Kaiser’s home run in the fourth, SU head coach Shannon Doepking opted to keep Hearn in the game. Hearn recorded just one out before she was pulled for  Dandola, who hadn’t pitched since March 30. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDandola was SU’s number two pitcher for most of the nonconference season, and Doepking declined to comment about the extended absence. She pitched 2.2 innings in relief and allowed just one run before she was pulled entering the seventh inning.While Dandola kept the GT bats under control, SU clawed its way back to a tie in the sixth and seventh innings. Carideo singled in pinch runner Jessica Skladal in the sixth, and sophomore Neli Casares-Maher singled in pinch runner Logan Paul in the seventh to tie the game. In both innings, SU also squandered opportunities with runners in scoring position. Prior to the series with Georgia Tech, Doepking called on her offense to provide more production at the plate. And while SU’s offense improved in the first two games of the set, the Orange have two losses to show for it.SU will close out the three-game set with Georgia Tech on Sunday at 10 a.m. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgMrs Brown’s Boys star and adopted Donegal man Danny O’Carroll has taken one for the team and given up playing for his beloved soccer side.Danny O’CarrollDanny, who is known better as Buster in the hilarious television sitcom, loved lining out for his local side Lagan harps in Manorcunningham.But the actor son of comic Brendan O’Carroll says he will come out of retirement – if they are really stuck! Instead of playing at his usual right-back position, the TV and movie star will now be shouting orders from the sideline.“I’m taking a step back from playing. With all the touring I don’t get a chance to keep fit and there are much better players then me who can play right back.“I will only play if we’re absolutely stuck and we’d have to be very stuck. I am still training away with the team, but I can’t go back to being a teenager again.“I wanted to continue to be involved so I’m now joint manager with Barney Kelly and it’s working out really well,” he said. Danny is heavily involved in pre-season training and put his side through their paces at the Old Foundry in Letterkenny this week.Danny said he will even fly back for games on Sunday for games adding “I’m free now until March next year except for a couple of weeks in September when we’re filming the Christmas Special for the BBC.”The Dubliner is heavily involved in the local community where he lives in Manorcunningham having married local woman Amanda Woods who plays Betty Brown in the show.Danny and Amanda recently donated 15 laptop computers to Lurgybrack National School which their children attend.He said he loves being part of the local community spirit but admits he would go “off his head” if he wasn’t involved in sport. “I’ve been getting involved in a lot of fundraising. It’s a brilliant club but we’re small and we need to do a lot with the club in terms of the facilities and the pitch.“It’s great to be involved with Lagan Harps. It’s great for the community here. It’s good for me too, especially when I’m off work.“I’d go off my head if I didn’t have the football. The lads have responded well so far and they’re putting a lot into training.”FUNNYMAN DANNY TAKES ONE FOR THE TEAM AND HANGS UP HIS BOOTS! was last modified: August 9th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Danny O’CarrolldonegalLagan HarpsmanorcunninghamMrs Brown’s Boyslast_img read more

Observing Animals for Fun and Profit

first_imgWhether scientists watch Animal Planet for inspiration or not, they often are fixated on the wonders in the animal kingdom and want to understand and imitate them.  Here are some recent examples:Waddle of the Penguins:  Max Kurz at U of Houston enjoys watching cuddly penguins like most of us, but wonders how they waddle without falling down.  If he can figure out how they keep their balance as they bob from side to side when walking, he thinks he may be able to help the elderly and disabled.Antlers in a Rut  How can male elk and other members of the deer family grow such huge bony structures every year?  Joanna Price of the Royal Veterinary College wants to know, reported BBC News.  The antlers apparently grow from stem cells.  If they can do it, maybe humans can learn the secret of regenerating body parts.Go to the Ant, Thou Student:  Well, what do you know: ants have teachers and students.  An article in UK News Telegraph summarized a paper in Nature1 by two biologists at University of Bristol who found that ants can do “tandem teaching” – that is, the teacher will stop until the student signals that he got the lesson.  This is better pedagogy than in the ape world, where the teaching is always one-way.    The scientists were stunned at this “example of teaching.”  They wrote that, “to our knowledge,” this is “the first in a non-human animal, that involves bidirectional feedback between teacher and pupil.”  Reporter Roger Highfield threw in a rather quizzical line at this unevolutionary finding: “dullards and dunces will be encouraged by the discovery that it is the value of what is being taught and the teaching style, rather than brain size, that has most influenced the evolution of teaching”2 (emphasis added).  Teacher, could you repeat that? 1Nigel Franks and Tom Richardson, “Teaching in tandem-running ants,” Nature 439, 153 (12 January 2006) | doi:10.1038/439153a.2Highfield took this from the authors’ introduction to their paper: “This behaviour indicates that it could be the value of information, rather than the constraint of brain size, that has influenced the evolution of teaching.”  This was the only mention of evolution in the paper.We’re going to just keep racking up cases of wonders in the animal kingdom, and evolutionists’ utter cluelessness about explaining them, till students everywhere get the lesson.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Spellcheck This: Microsoft Office 2010, The Movie

first_imgsteven walling Yes, Microsoft has a promo video for Microsoft Office 2010, and we’re posting it. This isn’t slapped together by some corporate PR hack with iMovie (oops, did we say that?) Microsoft gave self-described YouTuber Dennis Liu of Traffik Film Works a free hand, and the results are pretty amusing. The official release of Office 2010 is still quite a ways off, but if you’re looking for a bit of Friday buffoonery and you’d like to revel in seeing Clippy in his grave, I suggest you take a look-see. After watching it, the only thing we’re wondering is exactly who managed to sneak a link to the trailer into the Office 2010 Wikipedia article.

Tech That Protects The President, Part 1: Data Mining

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Next: image analysis.Photo by Steve Jurvetson adam popescu Related Posts President Obama’s appearance at the Democratic National Convention in September took place amid a rat’s nest of perils. But the local Charlotte, North Carolina, police weren’t entirely on their own. They were aided by a sophisticated data mining system that helped them identify threats and react to them quickly. (Part 1 of a 3-part series about the technology behind presidential security.)The Charlotte-Mecklenberg police used a software from lxReveal to monitor the Internet for associations between Obama, the DNC, and potential treats. The company’s program, known as uReveal, combs news articles, status updates, blog posts, discussion forum comments. But it doesn’t simply search for keywords. It works on concepts defined by the user and uses natural language processing to analyze plain English based on meaning and context, taking into account slang and sentiment. If it detects something amiss, the system sends real-time alerts.“We are able to read and alert almost as fast as [information] comes on the Web, as opposed to other systems where it takes hours,” said Bickford, vice president of operations of IxReveal.In the past, this kind of task would have required large numbers of people searching and then reading huge volumes of information and manually highlighting relevant references. “Normally you have to take information like an email and shove it in to a database,” Bickford explained. “Someone has to physically read it or do a keyword search.uReveal, on the other hand, lets machines do the reading, tracking, and analysis. “If you apply our patented technology and natural language processing capability, you can actually monitor that information for specific keywords and phrases based on meaning and context,” he says. The software can differentiate between a Volkswagen bug, a computer bug and an insect bug, Bickford explained – or, more to the point, between a reference to fire from a gun barrel and on to fire in a fireplace.Bickford says the days of people slaving over sifting through piles of data, or ETL (extract, transform and load) data processing capabilities are over. “It’s just not supportable.”Finding Patterns & Discovering ClustersOnce the system understands what people are saying, it performs behavioral analytics to detect patterns in interactions among people and identify clusters of people who follow particular patterns. “You look at how the community is changing,” Bickford explained, “like flash mobs forming.”The system doesn’t profile individuals based on demographics or personal identifiers. “We dont need name, race, or gender to link info togetrhter, which is what used to be done. The analysis is based on meaning and context.”Managing A Proliferation Of DataThe U.S. president isn’t the only one who benefits from uReveal. More than thirty police departments and multiple government agencies use it to track behavior, detect fraud, and monitor regulatory compliance. In the private sector, major clients include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; the service monitors threats to both the Gates’ and their foundation.And Bickford has a broader range of organizations in his sights. Systems like uReveal are essential to the task of gathering intelligence – not just law enforcement but business intelligence – in an age of proliferating data. “Organizations, whether government of business, will deal with [increasing amounts of] information in the future,” Bickford pointed out. “We’re trying to make analystics and intelligence a commodity, so everyone can get what they want. Our tech has taken a huge step in that direction.”The software costs as little as $5,000 for a small sheriff department and as much as half a million dollars for a government agency. Check out the video below to learn more about how uReveal works.  Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Data Services#web last_img read more

Twins Nungshi and Tashi Malik on their awe-inspiring mountaineering feats

first_imgNungshi Malik wakes up with a start and she nudges her twin sister Tashi Malik, “We dozed off. We have no rifle or equipment with us. We have to find the rest of the team.” They walk out of the tent and flash a torch. Relief washes over them as,Nungshi Malik wakes up with a start and she nudges her twin sister Tashi Malik, “We dozed off. We have no rifle or equipment with us. We have to find the rest of the team.” They walk out of the tent and flash a torch. Relief washes over them as they see the flash returned from a little distance away. They haven’t drifted that far off. This is the first time they’ve slept in a tent by themselves instead of with the rest of the team. The ice is constantly shifting at the Poles and if they had woken up even a few hours late they would have lost the team, stranded in the middle of nowhere, at the mercy of hungry polar bears in the blistering cold of less than -40 degrees. They pack up and join the rest to continue their 111 km trip towards the North Pole.The twins got to their destination on April 21 this year. Less than three months later, they would scale the last peak on their itinerary and become the first Indians and the youngest people ever to complete the Explorers Grand Slam within just two short years. This involves scaling the highest peaks of the seven continents and traversing both the North and South poles on skis. The 23-year-olds, originally from Haryana, spent their early years across the country, studying at more than nine different schools in Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Manipur and Uttar Pradesh owing to their father Col Virendra Singh Malik’s army background. So, from an early age, they were adept at handling unfamiliar situations.advertisementTheir tryst with the peaks began six years ago in 2009 while attending the basic mountaineering course at Nehru Mountaineering Institute in Uttarakhand. Although the twins dreamt of summiting Mount Everest way back in 2010, an adamant mother stalled their ascent for almost three years. Finally in 2013, their mother Anju Thapa Malik, buried her fears and reluctantly agreed to their Everest expedition which set them on a path that would guarantee her sleepless nights for years to come. Malik’s fears were not unfounded as the twins had to brave not just sub-zero temperatures of -50 to -60 degrees but deadly snow storms and the risk of hypothermia while on this mission. “Mckinley was the most notorious climb. It was ridden with snowstorms and most climbers had descended with frostbites on their fingers and toes that would later be amputated. We were asked to give up but our fate did not necessarily have to be the same as others, we thought. We were right about continuing because we were the first people to make it to the top that season,” says Nungshi recounting their summit of Mount Mckinley in Alaska.At the ‘balcony’, which is a small platform en route the last leg of the Everest climb at 8,400 metres, Nungshi’s oxygen mask malfunctioned. The air at this point is so thin that a person can die of asphyxiation within a few hours without an oxygen tank. “It was the scariest experience. Nungshi was feeling faint already and we were deliberating turning back when a kind sherpa on his way down lent us his oxygen mask,” says Tashi. The twins always had each others backs, motivating and pushing each other. When one was low the other lifted her spirits. “There were times where we would have given up if we were alone. Luckily, we could count on each other for nearly everything without thinking twice,” says Nungshi.”Mountaineering is given a lot of importance by the international community who jump at the opportunity to follow and sponsor their mountaineers, especially for an achievement like the Explorers Grand Slam but the sport is neglected in India,” say the twins, who watched their parents struggle and put everything on the line for their mission. Climbing each of these summits and the Poles cost between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 60 lakh. Theirs was partially sponsored by a number of Indian and international organisations, as well as the government of Uttarakhand. The rest was through personal loans and savings. The girls are currently studying exercise and sport science at the Southern Institute of Technology in New Zealand. On their return, they plan to focus on the Nungshi Tashi Foundation they started in April, this year. Through this they plan to empower young girls. The twins, who graduated in journalism from Sikkim Manipal University, also have a book in the offing and an ongoing affinity for the outdoors that extends to sports like hockey, badminton and basketball.advertisementHow they did itIt took real grit, hardwork and sheer determination to scalethe highest peaks.
