Gilmour Academy To Host “Skate for a Solution” Event To Raise Autism Awareness

first_imgGates Mills, Ohio – The Gilmour Academy Lancers will be hosting a “Skate for a Solution” game this Friday night to raise awareness for autism. The GA Boys Prep hockey team will face off against the defending 18-U AAA National Champions Pittsburgh Penguins Elite at 7:50 p.m. at the Gilmour Academy Ice Arena.Below is the official Press Release:                                         Gilmour Academy to Host Skate for a Solution GameGATES MILLS, Ohio, January 31, 2017 —The Gilmour Academy Athletic Department is hosting a Skate for a Solution game to raise awareness for autism on Friday, Feb. 3 as the Lancer boys prep hockey team hosts defending 18-U AAA national champion Pittsburgh Pens Elite at 7:50 p.m. at the Gilmour Academy Ice Arena.The night will also welcome the Cleveland Suburban Youth Hockey League as special guests for Youth Hockey Night.Admission to the event is donation-based, so all fans in attendance are encouraged to make a donation of their choosing to be given to the non-profit organization Autism Speaks to help the funding of research to find a cure for autism. A number of prizes will be given away throughout the evening. An honorary puck drop will take place at the start of the game and will feature Joey Nook, student from KidsLink and son of boys prep hockey assistant coach Joe Nook. There will also be an honorary Zamboni rider in between periods, Michael Hansen, student at Mayfield Middle School, brother of Gilmour eighth grader Mark Hansen ’21 and son of Lancer assistant softball coach Mandy Hansen.The Skate for a Solution game is the first for hockey however, Gilmour has hosted seven Swing for a Solution events in which the Lancer softball program raised money for Autism Speaks. This concept was the brainchild of Gilmour associate athletic director Kristy Booher Angelo, who saw an opportunity to show support for fellow softball coach Mandy Hansen and her autistic son.“Mandy and I have been best friends since we were 7-years old. We actually met playing softball and continue to play the sport on the same summer team to this day,” said Angelo. “What better way to show my support of her and her son through something we’ve shared together our entire lives.”As Angelo spread the word about the Swing for a Solution event, she and head boys prep coach Mike Chiellino got to talking about taking the concept to the ice. Prior to Gilmour, Chiellino worked for the Tradewinds Education Center in Rome, N.Y., which was a school for autistic children and students with special needs.“I had seen first-hand how underfunded the autism programs were while I was in New York,” said Chiellino. “So I understand the importance of not only raising money but also making others aware of this illness and all of the amazing kids who are working through this challenge.”Angelo and Chiellino both agree this is a great event for all involved.“We’re very blessed to have the opportunity to work and coach at a place where the students, staff, faculty and administration are so supportive of this cause, which is near-and-dear to us,” said Angelo. “Gilmour believes in serving others, and because of that, the community here has really embraced all of the events thus far. We’re hoping this one will be just as successful as the other games we’ve held on campus.”“I’m excited for our players to get involved with a cause and to learn they have the ability to make a difference using their passion,” said Chiellino.For the game, the Lancers will be donning stick tape with the traditional autism logo of the puzzle piece. Fans are encouraged to wear puzzle piece clothing or the color blue, which is commonly associated with autism.For fans unable to attend the game, but wishing to make a tax-deductible donation in honor of this event, please contact Kristy Booher Angelo at: booherk@gilmour.org.To find out more about  Autism Speaks, log on to: www.autismspeaks.org.To watch the game live online, go to www.gilmourlancers.com and click on the boys prep hockey schedule for a video link to the Feb. 3 Skate for a Solution Game.Gilmour Academy is a Catholic, independent, coeducational, college-preparatory school.  It is sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross, Notre Dame, Ind., and offers a Montessori program beginning at 18-months-old and a Lower School, Middle School and Upper School.

I hope to work on the project when I graduate. Because the Rio Grande LNG project would be just a 30-minute commute from my hometown I could have my dream job and be near my family and friends.I see many young people earn college degrees, then have to leave the Valley to advance their careers. If there were more opportunities in this area, we would not have to choose between our careers and being close to our families.I also was glad to read that NextDecade, the company developing the project, has signed a memorandum of understanding with The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. NextDecade and its partners, who are some of the most respected international companies in the business, will provide real-world learning opportunities to benefit students.The United States has some of the most abundant reserves of natural gas, a clean-burning fuel. As global demand grows, we will need more Natural Gas Engineers to support the exploration, production, distribution, processing and transportation of natural gas.I’m looking forward to graduating and working in this exciting, ever-growing field. Bravo NextDecade for committing to help train qualified engineers and hiring local talent as much as possible.Eddie DuranLos FresnosDear Editor,This month the worst President in my lifetime is going to take office and my lifetime goes back to Franklin Roosevelt.  All we need to do is look at the words that come out of his mouth, his tweets, the composition of his core supporters, and his Cabinet nominees. We can use as an example one of his earliest speeches concerning Mexican immigrants  that the majority of them were drug dealers, rapists, and criminals.  It is amazing that he got the level of Latino support that he did, which was very little. Any Latino supporters that he has are victims of internalized racism.  The same is true of any African American supporters he has; of course they are statistically insignificant here in the lower Rio Grande Valley.We can look at neoliberals and their beliefs and tactics to see a great part of the reason for the rise of Trump. Neoliberals deserted their core base of working people and tried to appeal to the more enlightened elites. Neoliberals may be described as anyone who subscribes to the beliefs of the Democratic Leadership Council or the people that ran the Democratic National Committee in 2017. A huge number of people, me included, were alienated by them.  Hillary Clinton was a very weak and flawed candidate; but she was vastly superior to Trump.  She did get almost three million more popular votes than Trump. She only lost because of the Electoral College, an eighteenth century relic that was designed to give slaveholding states a disproportionate amount of power.  It needs to be abolished just as any number of other provisions in the Constitution that restricted political participation have been. The Constitution as originally adopted only gave the vote to White males and the state legislatures elected Senators.The only reason that Trump won the old Northern industrial states was that the Democratic working class voters in those states were alienated by the neoliberal policies of the Democrats. Trump won the states of the old Confederacy because they have been taken over by white supremacists, social reactionaries, and religious fundamentalists; Texas included.  Trump ran his mouth about millions of illegal votes, but the only voter fraud that amounts to anything involves gerrymandering and making voting difficult.  The lower the voter turnout the more reactionaries benefit. Counting the number of eligible voters that did not vote at all; 75 percent of all eligible voters did not vote for Trump.What we can learn from the two paragraphs above is that not all Trump supporters are White supremacists, social reactionaries, and neo-Nazis, which I call them rather than their preferred term alt-right. It is true that all White supremacists, social reactionaries, and neo-Nazis voted for Trump.  One can follow their quotes in news outlets to see the truth of this.  I can’t help those who don’t follow the news at all. We can also look at Trump’s potential cabinet choices. Steve Bannon is a neo-Nazi.  Betsy DeVos is a social reactionary, Jeff Sessions is a White supremacist and a racist. All of his potential appointees share some of these undesirable characteristics or they are members of the oligarchy and/or jingoistic imperialists.We can fully expect to see the most corrupt presidency since the times of U.S. Grant and Warren Harding. We can expect to see the most repressive presidency since the time of the Palmer raids, the Japanese internment camps, and the era of Senator Joe McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee  were shameful periods in U.S. history and do not need to be repeated.  “Make America Great Again” coming out of Trump’s and his supporters mouths means roll back to a more reactionary era. The 1950s? The 1920s? the 1850s?  It will vary depending on which Trump supporter you talk to.The fact that this disaster happened is not as important as what we need to do about it.  The worst possible proposal is that of the neoliberals which is to be a loyal opposition and vote again in four years.  There is a lot more to political participation than voting; we learned that in the 1960s. What we need to do is look back to our civil rights movement, the labor movement, the women’s right movement the anti-war movement, and even go back to the Abolitionist movement tactics.  Tear a page out of the Tea Party playbook and resist and obstruct everything Trump and his allies try to do. We are going to have to tear the U.S. social relations and power structures down to their component parts and put them back together again in a manner that takes power from the rich 1 percent or the oligarchy, the racists, the social reactionaries, imperialists, and religious fundamentalists and reassemble them again. We need to go back to valuing people for what they can do not for what they own or can consume. We are going to have to be very adaptive. A year ago, neoliberals were praising WikiLeaks and Julian Assange and raking the U.S. intelligence agencies over the coals. Trump and his allies, such as Sarah Palin, were calling for Assange’s death. Now Trump and his allies are denouncing and discounting U.S. intelligence findings.  Assange is appearing on Fox News. Palin has publicly apologized to Assange and is encouraging people to see Oliver Stone’s new film, “Snowden.” If there is anything to be learned from this reversal of positions of the neoliberals and neo-fascists, it is that one’s overall vision of how things should be is more important than tactics.  Anything that weakens U.S. imperialism has a good aspect to it. It is going to be a long hard fight but only when we defeat the oligarchy and all reactionaries and take power from them can we make America great.Walter BirdwellLaguna VistaWant the whole story?

Laporan Investigasi Awal Lion Air JT-610: KNKT Indikasikan Sensor Angle of Attack Tidak Berlaku…

first_imgFakta-fakta yang disampaikan KNKT menyebut bahwa pesawat memang sudah mengalami masalah saat penerbangan Denpasar-Jakarta, dan berhasil mendarat dengan selamat di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta, sebelum keesokannya jatuh di perairan Karawang. Dan diantara beberapa hal yang dikupas dalam laporan kepada media, adanya anomali pada sensor Angle of Attack (AoA) menjadi sesuatu yang akan didalami lebih lanjut oleh investigator KNKT.Nurcahyo Utomo menyebutkan, bahwa sensor AoA saat penerbangan JT-610 mengeluarkan output yang diterima pada instrumen di kopit, yang menandaskan sudut kemiringan pesawat terdongak ke atas 20 derajat, suatu hal yang mengindikasikan potensi terjadinya Stall. Sebaliknya dari analisa Flight Data Recorder (FDR), posisi pesawat justru nampak normal.Data pada FDR merekam adanya perbedaan antara AoA kiri dan kanan sekitar 20 derajat, yang terjadi terus menerus sampai dengan akhir penerbangan. Sesaat pesawat udara sebelum lepas landas (rotation), stick shaker pada control column sebelah kiri aktif dan terjadi pada hampir seluruh penerbangan. Dan ironisnya, anomali pada AoA telah terjadi sebelumnya pada penerbangan PK-LQP pada rute Denpasar – Cengkareng, yakni pada malam sebelum hari naas. Bahkan pada penerbangan sebelumnya lagi, yaitu dari Manado ke Denpasar, pesawat tersebut diketahui mengalami masalah pada air speed indicator.Serangkaian perbaikan, telah dilakukan atas permasalahan yang terendus sejak 26 Oktober 2018, termasuk penggantian sensor AoA di Denpasar. Dalam jumpa pers, Nurcahyo mengatakan AoA yang terdapat pada Lion Air JT-610 sebelumnya pernah mendapat perbaikan di Florida, Amerika Serikat. “Kami berencana untuk memperoleh data dan informasi langsung dari Florida, terkait jenis dan hasil dari perbaikan AoA tersebut,” ujar Nurcahyo.Sebagai informasi, sensor AoA posisinya terdapat pada sisi luar pesawat, persisnya ada di bagian depan samping kokpit. Sensor ini berperan untuk mengkur tingkat kemiringan pesawat dibandingkan dengan horizontal line. Dalam aerodinamika pesawat, tingginya level AoA dapat menyebabkan pesawat kehilangan daya angkat, lantaran adanya turbulensi udara di sekitar sayap utama. Output dari AoA tidak bisa dilihat langsung oleh pilot, melainkan output sensor AoA yang kemudian digunakan sebagai pasokan untuk beberapa menu indikator navigasi di kokpit.Baca juga: Saat Boarding, Penumpang Lion Air JT-610 Kirim Video ke Grup WhatsApp Keluarga Sejak diterima oleh Lion Air, dalam tiga bulan pengoperasian, Boeing 737 Max 8 PK-LQP telah melayani 385 penerbangan. Dari hasil investigas awal KNKT, pada enam penerbangan terakhir, pada dua penerbangan tidak ditemukan terjadinya masalah, selebihnya pada empat penerbangan terakhir terindikasi adanya beberapa masalah yang dapat diselesaikan.Lebih lanjut, pihak KNKT akan terus melakukan investigasi dan wawancara pada pihak-pihak yang terkait. Dan yang pasti, KNKT tengah berjuang untuk mendapatkan black box VDR (Voice Data Recorder) yang merekam pembicaraan terakhir awak kabin dan komunikasi dengan pihak ATC (Air Traffic Control).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedBuntut Insiden JT-610, Pihak Lion Air Bisa Batalkan Pesanan Pesawat ke Boeing!05/12/2018In “Domestik”Sedih!

Kobe Bryant: NBA Icon Mourned By Wife Vanessa, NBA Legends At Emotional Memorial

He was my everything,” she said of the man she began dating when she was 17.Vanessa Bryant recalled how Gianna loved to watch Disney movies with her sisters and enjoyed baking for her family.“Gianna Bryant is an amazingly sweet and gentle soul,” Vanessa told the crowd through tears. “Her smile was like sunshine.

No. 9 seed Oklahoma State falls to No. 8 seed Oregon, 79-73

first_imgOMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Le’Bryan Nash stared at his feet, unable to speak. His teammate, Anthony Hickey, patted him gently on the back. Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford gave him an encouraging nod.The senior forward had just wrapped up his memorable Oklahoma State career with 18 points in a 79-73 loss to eighth-seeded Oregon in the NCAA Tournament, but all Nash could think about Friday night were his seven turnovers that contributed to the defeat.“Just looking back on what I could have done in that game. I’m not thinking about the rest,” he said. “Turnovers killed me. It would have been a different ballgame.”Perhaps not, the way Joseph Young and the Ducks were scoring.The Pac-12 player of the year had 27 points, going on a personal 15-3 run late in the first half. Elgin Cook added 18 points and Dillon Brooks finished with 17 as Oregon (26-9) gave Dana Altman a win in his return to Omaha, where he once coached Creighton.Up next is top-seeded Wisconsin, which beat Oregon in the NCAA Tournament a year ago.“We have a lot of guys who have made contributions,” Altman said, “but Joe and Elgin are our one-two punch most nights. And down the stretch, since we’ve been playing better in February and March, it has been those two guys leading us.”It has been one guy leading Oklahoma State (18-14) for quite a while.Sure, Hickey scored 17 points in his NCAA Tournament debut, and Phil Forte and Tavarius Shine added had 12. But it was Nash who helped get the Cowboys get into the tournament in the first place, and then kept them close when Oregon kept going on runs.He concluded his career with 1,839 points, fourth-most in school history.“He knows he’s a big reason we’re sitting here, the career he’s had,” Ford said. “It’s an unbelievable career. He’ll go down as one of the great Oklahoma State basketball players.”Young may do the same at Oregon.Oklahoma State actually did a good job of keeping Young in check most of the first half, denying him the ball and then clamping down when he finally got it. But when they loosened up just before the break, Young went on a roll.He started by draining a 3-pointer with 4:08 remaining, and then hit another one from well beyond the arc. Young added two free throws, another 3-pointer, an 18-foot jumper and then was fouled with 2.2 seconds left, converting both of those foul shots.Suddenly, the high-scoring senior guard had gone on a personal 15-3 run, digging the Ducks out of a 36-28 hole and giving them a 43-39 advantage at the break.“You can’t give him any space,” Forte said. “He’ll make you pay for it.”Young’s biggest highlight may have come early in the second half. The 6-foot-2 guard raced ahead in transition, gathered in a pass and threw down a dunk over Hickey before crashing to the floor — no doubt impressing his father, Michael, a member of Houston’s Phi Slama Jama.Oklahoma State responded with a spurt of its own, regaining the lead on Hickey’s 3-pointer midway through the second half. But the Ducks still had another run in them, this time with everybody but Young getting into the act. By the time Dwayne Benjamin stripped Nash and coasted in for a dunk, the 11-0 spurt had given the Pac-12 runner-ups a 70-62 lead with 6:40 left.The Cowboys trimmed their deficit to 70-69 a few minutes later, but Brooks added another 3-pointer, Jordan Bell added a dunk and the Ducks put the game away from the foul line.“We got outplayed,” Ford said. “They’re a very, very good offensive team.”SCOREBOARD ERRORFord bit his lip after the game when asked about fouling Young on purpose with 2.2 seconds left in the first half. The scoreboards said the Cowboys had five fouls when they actually had six. So instead of simply eating up time, the foul sent Young to the line, where he made both free throws. “It was a mistake,” Ford said, tersely. “Obviously.”TIP-INSOklahoma St: Nash also had seven rebounds. … The Cowboys lost despite shooting 45 percent from the field. … Oklahoma State fell to 0-3 against the Ducks.Oregon: The Ducks won despite getting just six points from their reserves. … Oregon is in the NCAA Tournament for the third straight year, the first time in program history.UP NEXTOklahoma State’s season is over.Oregon takes on No. 1 seed Wisconsin on Sunday.last_img read more
