The villa is situated on a piece of land that enjoys a splendid view of Lugano Lake. The suggestive view and the impending presence of the rocky mass behind the site have dictated the principles of inclusion of the entire building. The villa relates to the rock – from which it originates – in a dynamic dialogue, and at the same time, stretches towards the lake. The intrinsic morphology of the site and its south-west orientation towards the lake have directed the designer’s choice.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThe building is totally closed to the other villas located in the north-east but remains completely open on the other sides, establishing a close relationship with the surrounding landscape. The building looks like a block of black pigmented exposed concrete – the black color deriving from the rock from which it was created – with raw boards laid running in the same direction. This characteristic lives up the façade, emphasizing the alternation of full and empty openings.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThe light enters through the full-height openings, filling and enveloping the interior spaces of the villa and creating a warm and cozy environment. Doors and windows in natural oak wood enhance this peculiarity. The internal contrast between the white of the plaster and the black of the concrete creates suggestive plays, underlined by the glimpses that the villa skillfully offers. The continuity of the spaces is an important point of connection for the entire project. The detached villa is built on three levels. The basement houses the technical rooms, the garage and the living spaces for guests.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThanks to the white color of the resin on the floors and plaster on the walls, the rooms gain a surprising shine and open towards an external patio. The living area is located on the ground floor: a spacious living room with a large fireplace overlooks the garden which juts into an infinity pool where the view encompasses the entire surrounding landscape. On the upper level, the night zone provides four bedrooms and a study, each with private bathrooms and wardrobe. The roof is flat and covered with black gravel.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiGreat importance is given to the external layout, which is the result of important choices, with a great variety of plants and various species; the alternation of teak flooring and turf creates a perfect symposium. The paving of the vehicular area is made of small cubes of granite and enters the lobby of the villa, enhancing the continuity between inside and outside. Thanks to a walkway in the rock you can climb to a belvedere terrace that offers a wonderful view of the entire complex and the lake. The final result enhances the region, merging in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiProject gallerySee allShow lessSOM Designs Kinematic Sculpture for Chicago Design WeekArchitecture NewsTianjin Binhai Museum / gmp ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharecenter_img Projects 2017 Architects: Attilio Panzeri & Partners Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAttilio Panzeri & PartnersOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramCollina d’OroSwitzerlandPublished on October 24, 2018Cite: “Villa Montagnola / Attilio Panzeri & Partners” 24 Oct 2018.

If you call your members, this case may impact you

first_img continue reading » There is an important case pending before the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit which will have a direct operational impact on the type of technology your members can use to reach out to potential members. It also underscores just how unhinged the TCPA has become from Congress’ original intent and why Congress should do something to restore commonsense.First, a primer/refresher on the issue I am talking about. The Telephone Communications Protection Act (TCPA) was passed in 1991. Its Senate sponsor, Senator Ernest Hollings of South Carolina who passed away recently, described the emerging use of automated telemarketing campaigns as “the scourge of modern civilization. They wake you up in the morning, they interrupt our dinner at night, they force the sick and elderly out of bed; they hound us until we want to rip the telephone out of the wall.” While the Senator may have slightly overstated the case, the reality is many consumers continue to feel harassed by these non-stop pictures and their frustration has made TCPA litigation one of the hottest areas of consumer class-action lawsuits. Credit unions have not been exempt from this trend.The legislation he sponsored was codified as 47 USC §227. This law makes it unlawful for any person to make any call other than for emergency purposes using “any automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial prerecorded voice unless the person has an established business relationship with the recipient.” Seems simple enough except the statute defines an Automatic Telephone Dialing System (ATDS) as equipment “which has the capacity–(A) to store or produce telephone numbers to be called, using a random or sequential number generator; and (B) to dial such numbers.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Fat Chance: Evolutionists Push Date of Soft Tissue Back 558 Million Years

first_imgThe latest find of original molecules in a fossil should falsify long ages, but the discoverers use it to celebrate Darwinian evolution.You remember the gasp by Lesley Stahl when Mary Schweitzer showed her soft tissue in a dinosaur bone in a 60 Minutes episode (CBS News, YouTube, 2010). “Impossible!”, all the experts said, because dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago. No origional material should remain; even the bones should have been replaced by rock. But with their own eyes, they were seeing evidence of red blood cells and stretchy soft tissues inside a T rex femur. Creationists who don’t accept millions of years were saying, ‘We told you so!’ but their triumph was met with obdurate scorn. They watched with chagrin as all the evolutionists never even blinked. Darwinist reactions consisted of assertions by faith: ‘Well, what do you know! Dinosaur tissue can last for millions of years!’ Since then, numerous cases of soft tissue have been reported, some of them far older than Schweitzer’s (see RSR list), yet the Darwin Party refuses to concede they were wrong.Now, a fossil has been reported by paleontologists from the Australian National University (ANU) that could top them all. They found original molecules of fat (sterols and lipids) in specimens of Dickinsonia, a creature evolutionists insist is 558 million years old. Bobrovskiy et al published their results in Science Magazine 21 Sept 2018, “Ancient steroids establish the Ediacaran fossil Dickinsonia as one of the earliest animals.”Dickinsonia, an Ediacaran creature without organs or systems. Credit: ANU.Note: Dickinsonia lived in a time when Darwinists believe there were no animals at all: just microbes and a few enigmatic colonies of lazy bottom-dwellers called Ediacarans. Although Ediacaran fossil impressions are found around the world (they had no hard parts, so they only left impressions), most evolutionists believe they went extinct around 540 million years ago, before the first true animals burst onto the scene in a ‘geologically instantaneous’ period called the Cambrian Explosion, which lasted about 6 million Darwin Years. Charles Darwin himself considered the near-instant appearance of complex animals as perhaps the biggest challenge that could be lodged against his theory (see the book Darwin’s Doubt and the film Darwin’s Dilemma). The Cambrian animals had hierarchical body plans with organs and systems (including eyes, digestive and reproductive organs), and moved with muscles and nerves, whereas the Ediacarans did not. For that reason, and because of stratigraphical evidence, most evolutionists have not considered Dickinsonia and other Ediacarans to be ancestors of the Cambrian animals.Original biomolecules 558 million years old? Surely this would break the bank (read about “reckless drafts on the bank of time,” 2 July 2007) and force Darwinians to give up on their beloved millions of years. There is absolutely no way any fossil would contain any original biological material that long, one would think, especially if the organism had been buried in marine sediments permeated with water. Most evolutionists themselves believed that until recently. Biological material decays over time, even when entombed in dry rock. Add to that the geological changes that should have occurred in 558 million years—continents rising and sinking, tectonic plates subducting, rocks alternately freezing and thawing, and subsequent life churning up the strata. The destructive processes on this dynamic planet should have accelerated the degradation of biological material in less than one million years, let alone 558 million! If dinosaur soft tissue rocked the Darwin boat, Ediacaran soft tissue should sink it. Right?PhD in Spin DoctoringAnyone who thinks so underestimates the faith of the Darwin Party. The world may never have witnessed better masters at turning falsifying evidence into triumphs for their worldview. Ignoring the problem of keeping fat molecules intact that long, they are spinning the story this way: (a) Cholesterol is only found in animals. Therefore, (b) Dickinsonia must have been an animal. Consequently, (c) They have found an ancestor to animals before the Cambrian Explosion. Darwin has been vindicated!Believe it or not, this is exactly how the discoverers spun it. Watch how they do it in a video in the ANU press release, that could be used as a training model for turning defeat into victory. First we see co-author Jochen Brocks expressing dumbfounded surprise at his colleague’s identification of cholesterol in the Dickinsonia fossil. He could not deny it:Well when Ilya showed me the results, I just couldn’t believe it. I immediately saw the significance. It was completely clear. the results are black and white; there’s nothing to interpret.But does he question the age of the fossil? Does he consider the problem of how original material could last for 558 million years?These creatures in fact produced cholesterol, which is the hallmark of animals. It tells us that, in fact, this creature was our earliest ancestor.Media BandwagonInstead of laughing this performance off the stage and hitting the gong, the media loved it! They embraced it, treating it like one of the best acts of Darwin’s Got Talent they had ever seen! Watch the headlines and quotes in the secular media:Confirming the identity of early animals (Sacha Vignieri, Science). “This supports the idea that the Ediacaran biota may have been a precursor to the explosion of animal forms later observed in the Cambrian, about 500 million years ago.”‘Holy Grail’ fossil mystery cracked – 558 million-year-old fat reveals earliest known animal (Chris Ciaccia, Fox News). “The fossil fat now confirms Dickinsonia as the oldest known animal fossil, solving a decades-old mystery that has been the Holy Grail of palaeontology.“Fat from 558 million years ago reveals earliest known animal (Astrobiology Magazine). NASA regurgitated the press release without criticism, with its quote of Jochen Brocks saying, “The fossil fat molecules that we’ve found prove that animals were large and abundant 558 million years ago, millions of years earlier than previously thought.“Ditto for Science Daily.Earliest known animal was a half-billion-year-old underwater blob (Alice Klein in New Scientist). “Now, Jochen Brocks at Australian National University and his colleagues have found fat molecules in 558 million-year-old fossils of Dickinsonia – a type of Ediacaran – that confirms it was an early animal.‘”Earliest animal fossils are identified (Paul Rincon for the BBC News). “Scientists have identified the earliest known animal in the geological record.“The only reporters who showed a little bit of mild restraint wrote in Nature and Science:World’s first animal was a pancake-shaped prehistoric ocean dweller (Jeremy Rehm, Nature). Rehm says that proving that Dickinsonia are related to Cambrian animals “remains challenging,” and admits that Ediacarans “remain a mysterious group whose relation to any living organisms is uncertain.” He does not question the dates, however. “Under the right conditions, these chemicals can persist for millions of years, and so help to determine a fossilized organism’s evolutionary relationships.” That’s an assertion with no references. How could he prove it or test it?Chemical clues to the earliest animal fossils (Roger E. Summons and Douglas H. Erwin, Science). Erwin is one of the leading Darwinian experts on the Cambrian Explosion, fully aware of its challenges, so perhaps he considers it wise not to bang the victory drum too loudly. He doesn’t call Dickinsonia an animal, and he doesn’t call it an ancestor. But as a Darwin Party loyalist, he would never question the ages of the fossils. His last sentences are hopeful monsters of wishful thinking:Because molecular clock estimates and morphological characters from fossils offer limited resolution, our best hope for unraveling the early history of animals and the affinities of the Ediacara biota lies with identification of biomarkers that allow us to differentiate specific metazoan clades, particularly among the bilaterians. Further refining the phylogenetic signals from biomarkers may also help to resolve the early history of animals during the Cryogenian and early Ediacaran. Moreover, the fossil-specific biomarker approach taken by Bobrovskiy et al. promises to yield many new insights into the fossilization processes that led to soft-tissue preservation across the animal kingdom and throughout geological time.This guarded statement appears to indicate that Erwin knows about pervasive soft-tissue reports, and may be worried about how to explain them over “geological time.”Update 9/27/18: At Evolution News, paleontologist Günter Bechly has given a detailed look at all the evidence, explaining “Why Dickinsonia Was Most Probably Not an Ediacaran Animal.” He goes through all the papers written about this creature over the last 20 years, including the recent paper by Bobrovskiy et al., showing that the claims by Jochen Brocks are overblown when all the morphological and taphonomic evidence is considered. The cholesterol evidence is not conclusive, he explains, because plants and microbes also produce these molecules.Previously, hydrocarbon biomarkers for steranes had even been reported in 2.7-billion-year-old rocks (Brocks et al. 1999), but were later rejected as contaminations (French et al. 2015), so that Brocks had to submit a correction to his paper. This author is the very same Jochen Brocks whose lab is responsible for the new claim of cholesterol in Dickinsonia. Just saying. It should also be mentioned that in the other dickinsoniid Andiva, studied by Bobrovskiy (2018b), the steroid biomarkers were confounded by background signals and harder to interpret (Summons & Erwin 2018), which may be read as: they did not give the desired result of a metazoan nature.Although Bechly does not question the age of the fossil, he does imply that original biomolecules should not last that long: “the found cholesteroid should neither have been preserved for more than a half billion years, nor should it be expected to be found in invertebrate animals at all, including an Ediacaran stem group representative.”Can the world’s experts really follow Darwin like lemmings off a cliff? You just watched them do it. Brett Miller’s latest cartoon (a CEH exclusive) illustrates the situation: Evidence be darned. Wherever Master Darwin leads, we follow with eyes closed just like his!Here’s another, an illustration by J.

John Deere adds new models to Triple-Mounted Mo-Co lineup

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Larger mower-conditioners offer wider cutting widths and faster transport speedsAfter the successful introduction of the company’s first Triple-Mounted Mower-Conditioner in 2012, John Deere announces the addition of five new models that increase productivity of mowing and conditioning operations.“Our newest updates to these combination front- and rear-mounted machines offer wider front cutting widths at 3.1 or 3.5 meters and three combined cutting widths up to 9.9 meters,” says Glenn Padgett, senior marketing representative with John Deere Ottumwa Works. “These wider machines mean that dairy and beef cattle customers and large commercial hay producers can cut more acres per hour, increasing their productivity, especially during weather-sensitive field conditions.”With the addition of these models, the John Deere front and rear Mo-Co lineup now includes five models with different configurations, depending on customer needs:Two front machines, F310R and F350R, have respective cutting widths of 3.1 and 3.5 meters.Either of the two fronts combined with two different configurations of rear machines (two 3.1 meters or two 3.5 meters) delivers three different configurations, R870R, R950R and R990R, with respective cutting widths of 8.7, 9.5 and 9.9 meters.Productivity can be optimized further with AutoTrac™, the guidance system available on John Deere Tractors, which enables the new mower conditioners to cut and condition the crop at speeds up to 20 mph. Depending on tractor horsepower, transport speeds range up to 30 mph and transport widths can be configured to 3.5 meters or less. This helps operators reduce transport times and optimizes cutting and conditioning when working in each field.“These units are designed to maximize performance with superior cutting and conditioning in all types of hay,” adds Padgett. “In addition, producers can make precise ground pressure adjustments in seconds, thanks to a new ground pressure cylinder, which increases uptime in the field.”Maintenance time is reduced even further with a new front design that improves operator visibility when working.For more information on the new Triple-Mounted Mower-Conditioners and other hay and forage products from John Deere, see your local John Deere dealer or visit www.JohnDeere.com/Ag.last_img read more

Apple Rejects “Politically Charged” iPhone App

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Apple#news#NYT#politics#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting sarah perezcenter_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… A 22-year-old iPhone application developer by the name of Red Daly is claiming that Apple rejected his new application from inclusion in the iTunes App Store due to its political nature. His app, iSinglePayer, was designed to educate its users on the benefits of a single-payer health care system, a hotly debated issue here in the U.S. In addition to data-filled bullet points, the app also taps into the phone’s GPS to determine who the user’s local congressperson is, how much money the health care sector donated to their campaign, and a “tap to call” button to connect app users with lawmakers. According to Daly, an Apple representative spoke to him by phone to inform him that the rejection of the app was due to its “politically charged” nature. Well that, and the fact that Apple doesn’t allow political apps from single developers. Where Does Apple Draw the Line when it Comes to Politics?Apple may understandably want to distance their company from any hot-button political issue such as health care for fear that accepting political applications would damage their image (at least among those with opposing viewpoints). However, in this case it’s a matter of them arbitrarily deciding that one political app can’t make the cut when many others already did. For example, during Obama’s campaign, there was an “official” Obama application which included news, event listings, media, and details on where the candidate stood on various issues. Was that not politically charged? McCain supporters probably thought so. Daly also notes that Apple currently carries “Drudge Reader,” an app that allows for mobile reading of the “The Drudge Report” website. While this is a news-based application, the site is generally regarded as being conservative in tone. So again, this could be considered a politically charged application, especially among those who disagree with Matt Drudge’s opinions and views. So where is Apple drawing the line? Daly says that the app’s rejection is, in part, due to the fact that it’s a product of a single developer. At least, that’s what he claims Apple told him. Apparently, political candidates are allowed to release apps expressing their views, but single developers are not. Why Not Allow Political Apps? The real question here is why not? Let’s say that Apple approved the application, what would the fallout be? Would those against the views expressed in the app actually refuse to purchase an iPhone or iPod Touch? Would they dump their Apple devices for a politically-neutral Pre, Blackberry, or Google Android smartphone? All but the most excitable zealots would not. In fact, the result would probably be the release of another application from a different developer expressing an opposing viewpoint. Would that be such a bad thing?Considering how the rejected application’s design tapped into the phone’s GPS to deliver personalized, localized political information, it could have really set the stage for a slew of grassroots apps that used the mobile platform to rally the public to various causes or issues. Tap to call your congressperson, tap to customize and send an email to your senator, for example. In time, it’s likely that both sides of every issue would be properly represented, keeping Apple out of the spotlight as supporting any particular political opinion themselves. To date, it’s been Apple’s MO to distance themselves and reject anything remotely controversial, whether that’s mature apps, apps from their competition, and obviously now, politics too. Ironically, by doing so, they actually invite the scrutiny and ill will they were trying to avoid. At the end of the day, though, Apple’s iTunes Store is not the Internet where anyone and everyone can have their say – it’s a closed, tightly regulated platform where developers have to play by Apple’s rules or not play at all. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Get the Most out of Your Online Advertising Budget

first_imgOnline ads and reels are essential in the indie production world. Make sure you’re spending your ad budgets wisely.Cover image via Shutterstock. In 2017, promoting your video content is dramatically different than it was only two years ago. Vimeo and YouTube are still the undisputed best platforms for showcasing your work. Vimeo Pro allows you to feature a 4k embedded video clip on your website without any kind of tag or watermark. YouTube has the greatest reach, integrated social features, and a very large community — and you can monetize original content.Both websites embed seamlessly with social media giant Facebook, which has become a revolutionary advertising tool. If you run a wedding videography business, for example, I would go as far as to say that a well-implemented sponsored Facebook post and an ad in the local newspaper is sufficient coverage for your immediate business area.However, when it comes to promoting your wedding videography showreel, or any video content on Facebook, you want to consider uploading your videos directly to Facebook instead of sharing them from YouTube. Why? Your audience will likely miss the post if you don’t.Image via Shutterstock.The Rise of Facebook In 2016, Facebook became a worthy adversary to YouTube. Facebook generates up to 8 billion video views a day, a figure that has grown by 75% since 2015. Facebook counts a view after three seconds, in comparison with YouTube, which counts a view after 30 seconds of playtime. On desktop browsers, videos play automatically by default.Facebook, naturally, will do everything they can to compete with YouTube, which, in turn, may cost you money if you’re spending a portion of your ad budget on sponsoring your YouTube video on Facebook.In late 2014, reports started to surface about a change in Facebook’s algorithm regarding how posts appear. If a user has hundreds of friends and follows many celebrities and multimedia pages, there’s only so much their feed is going to show. As a result, Facebook uses several algorithms to determine what information to show you. For example, posts from a page that you visit often will appear more frequently on your feed than a page you don’t interact with often. The same goes for your friends.Image via Shutterstock.So, what does this have to do with running a Facebook page for your production company? Well, Facebook also wants to keep people on the site as a long as possible because that translates into more ad impressions, which generates revenue. As such, Facebook will favor page posts that keep your audience on the site. A post with a status update or picture will appear more frequently than a post with an external link that will take your audience away from Facebook.More recently, this has translated into video posts. While Facebook isn’t going to kill YouTube videos, they will make sure a video uploaded directly to Facebook appears more prominently than a linked YouTube video. This is how you can begin putting your ad money to better use.Keeping Up AppearancesBack in 2011, YouTube videos would appear in a feed like this.Come 2017, YouTube videos now look like this.The dimension of the video preview became a lot smaller; it’s also square rather than 16:9, which doesn’t necessarily indicate that it’s a video. Further, the YouTube icon is long gone. In fact, text sourced from the YouTube description fills most of the space. Whether your audience is browsing on their phone, a tablet, or a desktop, the YouTube link appears smaller than any other shared content, and if you’ve just dedicated $300 to promote your latest reel, well, it might be wasted money.To expand your reach, and put your budget to better use, you should begin uploading your videos to Facebook directly. This is what a Facebook video looks like.As you can see, it appears more prominently across the display for all devices. As a result, you’re going to see a lot more plays. The preview of a Facebook video is relatively the same size as the preview of a picture, if not larger. Since videos have a 135% greater reach than photographs, you’re going to get a lot more coverage by uploading a video instead of sharing a YouTube link, even if you don’t boost the post.However, what if your company relies on YouTube, and Facebook is just your secondary platform? Well, many creators have worked Facebook’s video algorithm to their favor. Take Philip DeFranco, for example.DeFranco is an incredibly successful YouTuber who has built several companies off the success of his news channel — Discovery has acquired most of them. DeFranco uploads small segments of his daily news broadcast to his Facebook page, and if people want to watch the rest, they go over to YouTube.Many creators will also include the link in the comments or the description. It’s interesting to note that Facebook has recently removed the ability for pages and users to include a “watch more” button, which would direct viewers to an external site. Many who make a living using YouTube used this feature widely.Going ForwardThis isn’t to say you should only upload your content to Facebook and forego YouTube. However, if you are sharing video content on Facebook specifically to increase your consumer base or to promote yourself as a freelance filmmaker, you really want to upload that material directly to Facebook to maximize your reach. Of course, make sure you upload your reel to all of the other video sharing platforms, too. You never know who will stumble upon it.Which platforms do you use to showcase your reel? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more

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

Iran boss furious with Ronaldo VAR decision

first_imgIran boss Carlos Queiroz is furious that Cristiano Ronaldo managed to escape a red card following a VAR review of an incident that saw him elbow defender Morteza Pouraliganji in the face in their 1-1 draw against PortugalThe Real Madrid forward had a rather eventful game on Monday and was awarded a penalty after going down in a challenge from Iran’s Saeid Ezatolahi.The penalty was initially waived off before the referee awarded Portugal the spot-kick after reviewing the incident through VAR.However, Ronaldo then surprisingly missed the penalty and later was under the spotlight once more.The 33-year-old attempted to get in front of Morteza Pouraliganji and appeared to hit the defender in the face with a flailing arm. But, after a long review with VAR, the referee decided to only punish Ronaldo with a yellow card.But Queiroz insisted Ronaldo should have been sent-off and suggested that there was preferential treatment for the likes of the Portugal captain and Lionel Messi.“I don’t want to talk too much, it’s about my country and a player. I know it’ll be a war against me,” said Queiroz, according to NDTV.“But the reality is you stopped the game for VAR, there is an elbow. An elbow is a red card in the rules. In the rules, it doesn’t say if it is (Lionel) Messi or Ronaldo…”Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.He added: “We accepted human mistakes before, that was part of the game. Players make mistakes, coaches make mistakes and referees make mistakes,”“But now you have one system that cost a fortune. It’s high-tech with five, six people inside and what happens? Nobody takes responsibilities.“We need to be like rugby. When there is a decision by VAR I need to know what the referee is saying to them, people need to know what is going on.”“So in my opinion, Mr. Infantino and FIFA, everybody agreed that VAR is not going well,” he added.“That’s the reality, there’s a lot of complaints.”Ricardo Quaresma scored Portugal’s only goal of the game before a late Karim Ansarifard penalty levelled the score and denied Fernando Santos’ side the chance to top Group B.Portugal will now face Group A winners Uruguay in the Round of 16 in Sochi on Saturday.last_img read more
