Mens Basketball Ohio State coming off fourday rest with home matchup against

Ohio State senior forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) speaks with head coach Chris Holtmann in the first half in the game against Michigan on Dec. 4. Ohio State won 71-62. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State men’s basketball (7-3, 2-0 Big Ten) returns from a four-day rest period at noon Saturday to host William and Mary (6-2). The Buckeyes had faced six teams over a 12-day stretch prior to the break, four of those games coming against opponents with winning records and one being against Wisconsin in Madison, that ended with a dramatic second-half, 71-62 victory against Michigan on Monday.Here is a rundown of what to expect in Ohio State’s matchup against William and Mary Saturday.Projected StartersWilliam and Mary:G — Matt Milon — Redshirt sophomore, 6-foot-5, 195 lbs., 15.0 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 0.8 apgG — Connor Burchfield — Senior, 6-foot-4, 180 lbs., 13.1 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.6 apgG — David Cohn — Redshirt senior, 6-foot-2, 168 lbs., 10.9 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 7.1 apgF/G — Justin Pierce — Sophomore, 6-foot-7, 168 lbs., 14.4 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 3.4 apgF — Nathan Knight — Sophomore, 6-foot-10, 235 lbs., 20.3 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 1.9 apgOhio State:G — C.J. Jackson — Junior, 6-foot-1, 175 lbs., 13.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.8 apgG — Musa Jallow — Freshman, 6-foot-5, 200 lbs., 4.9 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 1.3 apgF — Keita Bates-Diop — Redshirt junior, 6-foot-7, 235 lbs., 17.4 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 1.4 apgF — Jae’Sean Tate — Senior, 6-foot-4, 230 lbs., 13.3 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 3.0 apgC — Kaleb Wesson — Freshman, 6-foot-9, 270 lbs., 11.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 0.7 apgScouting William and MaryStatistically speaking, William and Mary is one of the better offenses Ohio State will face all season. The Tribe averages more than 86 points per game. It has done this by being extremely accurate shooting all season, ranking 19th in field-goal shooting percentage (50.8 percent) and second in 3-point shooting (47.3 percent).But what really has the Buckeyes nervous about the matchup has been the Tribe’s ability to shoot from 3-point range.Ohio State could barely keep up with Michigan in the first half of the game Monday, especially from beyond the arc. The Wolverine offense spread the Buckeye defense all over the court and opened up plenty of good looks from 3-point range. Michigan took advantage of those chances, shooting 7-for-16 in the first half. But Ohio State rallied in the second half to shut down Michigan’s ability to shoot the 3, holding them to just 1-for-12.Head coach Chris Holtmann said he hopes that second-half success against Michigan is able to carry over into a full game against William and Mary, but said he believes this is a better shooting team than the Wolverines.“They shoot it better than Michigan across the board,” Holtmann said. “They’ve got more prolific 3-point shooters than those [Michigan] guys. But they do have some similarities in how they play and certainly their ability to spread you out.”Four of the Tribe’s five starters have made at least 47.6 percent of 3-point shots this season, with the only exception being forward Nathan Knight. But Knight will provide his own challenges for the Buckeyes. The second-largest player on William and Mary’s roster in terms of both height and weight, Knight has been the catalyst for the Tribe’s offense this season. He is tied for 79th-most rebounds per game in the country with 8.6, and is tied at 43rd in points per game at 20.3. On the other end of the court, Knight has continued to be an oft-overwhelming force for he sits at No. 12 in the nation in blocked shots per game with 3.13.Joining Knight at the forward position is sophomore Justin Pierce. The power forward has also proven to be a prolific scorer with 14.4 points on the season, while shooting an effective 10-for-21 from beyond the arc. Pierce leads the team with 9.5 rebounds.Holtmann said that while his center Kaleb Wesson and forward Keita Bates-Diop will be charged with being the two primary defenders, the other three players on the court will also have to step up to provide coverage of the two Tribe forwards given William and Mary’s ability to spread the defense.“We’ve talked not just those two guys, but all of our guys about how we want to defend those,” Holtmann said. “[Knight’s] a really good athlete who can score in the low-post and score in the long-post as well. Then [Pierce] is what you’d expect with the kind of a spread-you-out four, type of a team . . . He’s a good athlete. He’s bouncy. He can make 3s that are really high clip.”The starting point guard for Ohio StateJunior guard C.J. Jackson began the season as Ohio State’s only true point guard, but did not start in either of the past two games for the Buckeyes against Wisconsin or Michigan. When asked after the game if Holtmann was trying to send a message, he stated emphatically that he was, and that turnovers were a big part of the reason he did not play. He is averaging 3.1 turnovers per game. Redshirt senior guard Kam Williams has started in his place in the lineup while senior forward Jae’Sean Tate has run the offense through the point.On Friday, Jackson and Holtmann talked about how beyond just the turnovers, Jackson needed to improve his communication and on-court leadership. However, coming off back-to-back games where Jackson came off the bench and racked up double-digit point totals, Holtmann said he “may start him” against William and Mary.“I think he knows that his minutes will be pretty consistent as long as he can continue to try to do what we’re asking him to do in terms of limiting his turnovers,” Holtmann said. read more

Fake Chinese Apple Stores now called Smart Store problem solved

first_imgAs we all know with Apple’s slew of copyright infringement lawsuits, the company does not take very kindly when someone even comes close to copying it. For example, Apple will go so far as to sue Amazon for using the word “App Store,” and don’t even get us started with the whole lawsuit between Apple and Samsung halting the sales of the Galaxy Tab because it too closely resembles the iPad.These lawsuits are debatable to some people, but when a company or store blatantly copies Apple, there’s no way around it. Back in July we heard of a fake Apple Store in the city of Kunming in the southwestern part of China that was so realistic even its employees thought they worked at a real Apple store.Just a few days ago we heard news of 22 more fake Apple Stores in China – five of which were in the city of Kunming. Two of the Kunming stores were quickly shut down after the news of their existence broke out. Ironically, the stores were simply shut down due to the owners not having business licenses.After an investigation launched on August 2, the 22 stores were found to be selling either official or counterfeit Apple products in what seemed to be an official Apple Store, complete with the Apple logo and all.Well, it turns out that to not be shut down, all the stores had to do was change their names. MicGadget is reporting that the store names have now been changed to “Smart Store.” The Apple logo is still there, glowing bright and true. Another store not in Kunming was also found and is called “iParty.”We’re still wondering why Apple hasn’t put a stop to this altogether. With a population of 1.34 billion people and only four real Apple stores in China, you’d think Apple would wise up and build some more stores so that all these counterfeit alternatives wouldn’t be popping up all the time.via MicGadgetlast_img read more

City willing to comply to new loan rules says Guardiola

first_imgManchester City Pep Guardiola says the club will definitely comply if directed to reduce the number of loaned out players.According to reports, FIFA are considering to set the number of outgoing player loans allowed for each club to a maximum of between 6 and 8, from the start of the 2020-21 season, and Guardiola believes the club will have no problem adapting to the rule.Manchester City currently have 28 players on loan spells in different clubs all over Europe.Big clubs have been accused of stockpiling players that they could later sell for profit and thereby abusing the loan system which was meant to be used for player development.“We are going to adapt to the rules,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.“The new rules are coming. We’re going to see the situation about loan players and see what we can do.norwich city, manchester city, premier leagueReport: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“If we cannot loan them they are going to come back here. If we don’t believe they are going to play, if we cannot loan them, we are going to sell them. It’s simple.“We’re going to see before they take the players where they are going to play and if it is not possible to loan them we are not going to buy them.”Guardiola thinks the Under-23 competition in England is not enough preparation for players hoping to make it in the Premier League, as he supports the loan system.“It’s not good for me,” Guardiola added.“Loan players are in good leagues. To then come here to play in front of 10 people is not good for their development.”last_img read more

Stephen Hawking coin revealed and its out of this world

first_img Culture “It is a great privilege to be featured on a coin, and I hope my father would be pleased to be alongside Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin as scientists who have made it on to money,” Lucy Hawking said in a statement. In a video taken at the Mint, she comments on the design. “It’s a 2D surface that seems to have a 3D image on it,” Hawking notes. “It’s as though you could fall into the black hole.”Coin collector site Change Checker says Hawking will be one of only three people commemorated on a British coin within a year of dying, along with Winston Churchill and the Queen Mother.When Hawking was just 21, he was diagnosed with a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis known as Lou Gehrig’s disease that gradually paralyzed him. He used a wheelchair and spoke through a computer system operated with his cheek.Hawking is also in the running to appear on the British 50 pound note. £50 translates to about $64 US and AU$92.

Royal Mint “Stephen Hawking made difficult subjects accessible, engaging and relatable and this is what I wanted to portray in my design,” coin designer Edwina Ellis said on the Royal Mint’s site. “I wanted to fit a big black hole on the tiny coin and wish he was still here chortling at the thought. I am sure he would have thought of ways to harness the shiny table of the coin too.”Those of us who don’t have a regular opportunity to handle British money can buy the coin online, but it’s not cheap. According to the Daily Mirror, the Mint is selling the coin for £10 ($13 US, AU$18) for a simple uncirculated version of the coin to £795 ($1,050 US, AU$1,485) for a gold version of the coin.

Team Anand seeks to gain lost ground

first_imgOn what turned out to be a pretty bad day in office, five-time world champion Anand went down rather tamely in the second game on Sunday and now trails 0.5-1.5 in the 12-game match. Anand’s body language also suggested that the king is currently down especially in the light of the fact that the opening had gone quite well for the Indian ace in both the games. However, as was the case in the last world championship match, Carlsen tuned the position of both games to his liking after some time and while Anand salvaged a half point in the first game, in the second he never got a chance. Also Read – Khel Ratna for Deepa and Bajrang, Arjuna for JadejaAnand looked more tentative than Carlsen and it was hesitation that cost him dearly in the second game.To his credit, Carlsen was at his best and did what he has mastered against top class opponents. An innocuous opening reached a level middle game and then the complexities stared to burden Anand to the extent that he fumbled and produced a rare blunder. This was clearly caused by sustained pressure by the Norwegian.In the last world championship match, Anand had drawn four before losing the fifth game. Anand will have to not only stop further damage but also seek a quick cruise control to stage a comeback in the match. In the third game on Tuesday Anand will play with white pieces.last_img read more

Poetic sensibilities

first_imgCombining the dexterity of a lensman and sensibility of a poet, a leading Indian writer-photographer is set to crackle the art scene in the national capital by holding a solo photography show Ephemera that takes the audience into the deep recesses of the mountains and life of the people through a tapestry of haunting images. Delhi-based artist-author Kishore Thukral’s week-long exhibition, beginning January 14 at India Habitat Centre, features 73 sparkling photos, focusing on the transient nature of life shot through diverse geographies – from Ladakh to Nepal, from Mauritius to Japan, from Spiti to Cambodia. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’So there are pictures of brooding mountains, expansive deserts and gurgling rivers on the one hand and of urban chaos expressed through images of fishing nets (Cambodia) and the rail transit line (Tokyo), on the other. The uniqueness of the exhibition lies in Thukral’s pioneering attempt to probe the timeless bond of man-mountain-water and beyond through two different mediums — camera and poetry. For Ephemera is the title not only of the photo exhibition but also first book of his that combines pictures with verse.    Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“This relationship (man, mountain and water) commenced millennia ago. It will endure till our planet survives. Their Survival will be our Survival,” says the artist, who has trekked, photographed and researched extensively in the western Himalayas, especially in the Spiti Valley.The pictures – all in colour — focus on the entrancing nature on the one hand and the toil and turmoil of human beings in an urban milieu – with an underlying message that they are all ‘ephemera’. “In this Cosmos of Eternity, what am I but mere Ephemera!” observes the poet-artist. Celebrated art historian, curator and cultural theorist Alka Pande has curated the exhibition, which will be opened by well-known music composer Shantanu Moitra.On the occasion, renowned actress-writer-painter-photographer Deepti Naval will release the book, Ephemera, which sums up Thukral’s belief, imbibed through the Buddhist philosophy, that impermanence is the only permanent thing in life. We may yearn for immortality, but ‘ephemera’ is our unalterable destiny.   In her foreword to the book, Deepti Naval writes: “His (Kishore) journey has taken him to remote niches in the mountains, and to a whole new universe en route…the camera has become an inseparable part of Kishore. I have seen him use it instinctually, like an artist handling his brush. Understandably, his photography is intuitive, not laboured…. Going through his book it becomes difficult to say whether it is his image or his words that are more evocative.” The 198-page book has 171 photos in total, capturing the various moods of the mountains and life of the people. “My poetry reflects the frustration and longing of inhabitants of the ersatz world of our cities,” he says.  Thukral has to his credit a number of photography exhibitions and illustrated lectures on Spiti, Dangkhar and Vajrayana Buddhist art. His photographs have appeared in books, magazines and calendars, including the 2011 calendar on Buddha brought out by India Post, Government of India. He has also the credit of compiling and editing Sharanam Gachhami: an Album of Awakening (Full Circle) in 2011, a coffee-table book of photographic interpretation on Buddhist principles, shot by 20 photographers from different parts of the world, including Richard Gere, Steve McCurry, Raghu Rai and Deepti Naval. His other works include The Chronicler’s Daughter (2002), a novel. He is currently working on a handbook on Himalayan and Tibetan Buddhist iconography. He has also translated and written several songs, including the theme song for the award winning film I am Kalam.When: January 14 to 20  Where: India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Roadlast_img read more

first_img Technology | January 06, 2015 IDS Debuts Advanced Integration With Cloud Speech Engine for its Speech Recognition, Reporting Platform IDS debuted at RSNA 2014 Voice2Dox speech recognition and reporting platform with cloud-based clinical speech… read more April 6, 2009 – Agfa HealthCare released TalkStation 4.0, an integrated speech recognition workflow solution for radiology reporting today. The new software platform includes features that improve physician efficiency, enhance speech recognition, and provide tighter integration with the company’s IMPAX radiology Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS).TalkStation 4.0 is designed to streamline radiology interpretation tasks and minimize the time and effort required to complete daily reporting activities. “The solution has a number of new features that improve the way physicians interact with the application,” said Dr. Kevin Junck, associate professor of radiology and chief of radiology informatics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Health System. “It has become embedded in clinician workflow and even radiologists that were advocates of traditional transcription want to use it for everything.”New features include:- Enhanced workflow for resident training, including customized activity worklists, attending physician rejection of reports, and ‘read-out’ workflow for joint report approval by resident and attending physician- Web-based sign-off of reports supports resident- or transcription-based workflows;- “My Activities” toolbar makes it easy for radiologists to find preliminary and corrected reports and, in an academic environment, resident reports that need approval;- Automatic color coding of report text based on input device draws the radiologist’s eyes to areas of the report that are at greater risk for inaccuracy;- User interface with virtually unlimited flexibility enables physicians to move, add or remove toolbars and toolbar buttons and choose from different skins to meet the lighting needs of multiple viewing room situations.In addition, TalkStation 4.0 is designed to enable more efficient report creation due to a reduction in both voice recognition errors and report editing time. “The most important thing in radiology reporting is accuracy,” said Dr. Junck. “Our move to the latest version of Agfa HealthCare’s TalkStation has provided a tremendous increase in speech recognition accuracy.””TalkStation 4.0 has increased its recognition of my voice far beyond previous versions,” added Dr. Robert Stanley, chairman emeritus of UAB’s radiology department. “I roll along without a pause and when I check my report to sign off on it, I rarely need to make corrections.”TalkStation 4.0 seamlessly interfaces with IMPAX, allowing it to function as an integrated extension of the PACS, instead of operating as an independent application. For example, TalkStation is configured to automatically populate exam accession numbers from the PACS, eliminating a step that previously required physicians to initiate synchronization.”Agfa HealthCare is committed to maximizing physician efficiency by helping radiology departments improve reporting quality,” said Lenny Reznik, Director, Enterprise Imaging and Information, Agfa HealthCare. “With TalkStation 4.0, Agfa HealthCare advances radiology reporting with state-of-the-art technology, toolsets, and workflows.”For more information: www.agfa.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | February 19, 2015 Calgary Scientific Launches ResolutionMD 5.0 Calgary Scientific Inc. announced the release of ResolutionMD 5.0, which offers better access to health information,… read more News | February 24, 2015 Dolbey Speech Recognition Awarded Best in KLAS Third Consecutive Year For the third consecutive year, a Dolbey speech recognition solution was named Best in KLAS.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

liked where things were going and then the owner flew in from LA and offered me the gig”Six houses for six episodes to be flipped were in the Twin Cities area but because LaVoi also runs his own business his schedule would only allow him to commit to four showsAs July rolled around it was lights camera action“We got a call sheet every night that said what we’d be working on the next day” said LaVoi who was one of five contractors chosen for the show He didn’t know any of them going into it“So we’d show up in the morning you’d get make up miked up and then go through a team meeting”As this team of contractors and their own teams of subcontractors attacked the massive project the show’s host famous Australian house flipper Cherie Barber would pop in and out to see what was going on The goal of the show is to take houses in need of serious updates and remodels and “flip” them into beautiful pieces of real estate that are sure to impress buyers willing to pay much much more than what they were purchased for Because the crews only got five days to make these incredible transformations happen schedules were approximately from 7:30 am to 9 pm“And then the night crews would come in like painters and electricians…there would be a whole army of guys getting after it all day and all night” said LaVoi who initially had doubts that they’d be able to flip a house in only five days“I didn’t know if it could be done but people are literally standing right there behind you ready to jump in with the next thing” said LaVoi who was also given a personal assistant“It was kind of the star treatment because our personal assistants would be right there to get you anything you needed whether it be something to eat or if you needed something like tools or materials they would just run right out to the store for you You don’t get that every day with this job” he laughedLaVoi said it was fun to get an inside look at how these shows are produced He says the challenging part was getting things done with cameras in their faces“They wanted to catch drama so if you’d find something that wasn’t according to plan they didn’t want you to just figure it out and get it done” said LaVoi “They wanted to get the camera on it and kind of make a big deal about it It was cool though; it just made it hard to work when you’ve got 10 15 people standing in front of you”LaVoi says he enjoyed being a part of the show and getting the opportunity to do work he normally wouldn’t get to do because it’s usually out of people’s budgetsThe first show airs Thursday Feb 4 at 10 pm on HGTV LaVoi says he’ll be seeing it for the first time when it airs which has him curious about how he did“I’m pretty good talking with people and not too shy around the camera so I think it went well but I know sometimes how you think you’re portraying yourself is different than how it really comes off” he laughed “So I’m a little nervous”LaVoi says the shows are being put through test markets right now to see what kind of feedback they get before the production company decides whether or not they want to do more but from what he hears so far that feedback has been positive“They did make mention of possibly signing up for more episodes this summer in Minneapolis so we’re just waiting to hear back about that” said LaVoi who says if that’s the case he plans on jumping on the opportunity againHe says he loved the crews and the other contractors chosen for the show“We got along very very well” said LaVoi “There were no big heads or jerks – they were really cool”LaVoi says he was excited to get to be a part of the show and now he gets to use the “As seen on HGTV” logo for his business It’s a marketing perk he says is huge“I know a guy who was on Bath Crashers (another HGTV show) and he says just having that logo did a lot for his business because people know you’re a good qualified contractor” he saidWhen asked if he would ever consider making a career out of doing TV shows like this LaVoi says he would definitely consider it but only if he knew he wouldn’t have to run his business and do the show Both gigs proved too consuming for the family guy“But I’m excited that I got to be a part of the show” said LaVoi “It was a challenge it was fun and I think what we ended up doing (with the houses) was really ratherThe message sent by two Republican-run committees was that if Democratic Gov Mark Dayton vetoes an agricultural policy bill his proposal to limit nitrogen fertilizer will be delayed until a year from now If Dayton signs the bill the agriculture chairman will allow the fertilizer rule to be implementedThe weekend committee actions have two significant implicationsFirst it is the first time the law has been used and if it is successful it could prompt other committees with executive branch disagreements to take action without the need to go through the full Legislature Second it is one in a series of efforts in which legislators or the governor have tried to leverage the other side via unrelated actionsThe Senate ag committee voted 8-2 late Saturday May 19 with the House following 9-6 on Sunday in favor of the resolution The agriculture chairmen need to notify specific people before the action takes effect and if Daton signs the ag bill they can decide not to implement the yearlong delayHouse Ag Chairman Paul Anderson R-Starbuck said the ag bill contains a provision that would give counties power to determine how much soil loss is allowed on a farmThe state Board of Water and Soil Resources is poised to establish statewide rules and rural Republicans insist such decisions must be left to local officialsThe committee votes the only actions needed to fulfill the law would delay the expected fertilizer rule until a year from now The administration is expected to approve the rule late this year or early in 2019 but the committee action means legislators may change the rule next yearThe law could be used by other committees in any subject area prompting Rep Tim Mahoney D-St Paul to say the vote will prompt legal action so the Supreme Court can decide "how much we can neuter the executive branch"The normally civil House agriculture committee erupted in a dispute late Saturday Democrats were critical of stopping the administration’s fertilizer rule"This is a cringe-worthy moment in time" Rep Jeanne Poppe D-Austin said "I am so stunned that we have devolved to this .
