Football Ohio State bounces back from loss defeats Army 387

Ohio State redshirt junior H-back Parris Campbell races to the end zone for a touchdown that was called back due to a holding penalty during the second quarter of the Buckeyes’ game against Army. Credit: Nick Clarkson | Social Media EditorA week after its first loss of the season, No. 8 Ohio State (2-1, 1-0) bounced back with a solid, yet unspectacular performance, defeating Army 38-7 Saturday evening at Ohio Stadium. Both teams took advantage of extended drives, but Army (2-1) dominated the time of possession, despite being outgained 586-278 yards by Ohio State. The Black Knights controlled the ball for 36:57, while the Buckeyes maintained possession for 18:27. The Buckeyes’ offense relied heavily on short throws designed to get playmakers in space to used their superior athleticism. Redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett finished the game 25-of-33 for 270 yards and two touchdowns. He set the record for most career touchdowns accounted for in Big Ten history, surpassing former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees with 107 touchdowns.“I’ve known about the Big Ten Conference for probably 40-some years, and of all the great players that have played here, to say you’re the number one touchdown maker in the history of the Big Ten Conference, that’s awesome,” coach Urban Meyer said. “That’s something that — that’s going to be a hard one to break.”As has been the case since the latter portion of last season, Barrett struggled to connect with receivers on deep passes as the redshirt senior completed three passes for at least 20 yards. After the 31-16 loss to Oklahoma,  Meyer and co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said the offense needed to establish a flow. The Buckeyes did not have a single three-and-out. Ohio State only punted twice and scored on long drives of 13, 12 and eight plays.J.K. Dobbins spurred the Buckeye offense. He had 172 rushing yards on 13 carries in his third career start. On the fifth play of the game’s opening drive, Dobbins took a handoff 36 yards to spark an offense that spread the ball around to its receivers. Barrett finished Ohio State’s first drive with a touchdown, but Dobbins scored a 2-yard touchdown on the next drive.“He’s a perfect tailback,” Meyer said of the freshman. “He’s a space player that we need.”Redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber entered the game on the second drive and had four rushes for 13 yards against Army. Weber, who has dealt a hamstring injury, did not play until the second quarter last week.After a punt by Drue Chrisman pinned Army at the 1-yard line with 1:02 remaining in the opening quarter, the Black Knights used an 18-play, 99-yard drive to score their first touchdown of the game. The prolonged drive took 9:37 and took Ohio State’s momentum it had accumulated after scoring in two of its first three drives.Three players on Army, which rushed for at least 50 yards. Running back Darnell Woolfolk led the Black Knights in rushing with 74 yards on 15 carries. Army quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw attempted seven passes, but only completed two for 19 yards.In the second quarter, Bradshaw slightly underthrew his target, which allowed redshirt senior safety Erick Smith to lay out and deflect a pass, preventing a touchdown. Smith also saved the Buckeyes from allowing a kick return for touchdown and nearly picked off an errant pass in the third quarter.Redshirt junior wideout Johnnie Dixon did not play for the Buckeyes. He has dealt with multiple injuries during his career, but entered the game second on the team with 77 receiving yards. Redshirt senior middle linebacker Chris Worley exited the game in the first half and was replaced by redshirt freshman Tuf Borland, who led the team with 12 tackles.“Coach told [Borland] earlier in the week, ‘Get ready to play a lot more this week’ because he’s been doing so well in practice,” redshirt junior defensive end Sam Hubbard said. “He’s an instinctive player and he got his opportunity, and he made the most of it.”In an added offensive wrinkle, H-back Parris Campbell lined up at running back, a position he primarily played in high school. Though his biggest carry, a 59-yard rush late in the second quarter, was called back due to a holding penalty, Campbell rushed twice times for 26 yards. He also caught six passes for 54 yards.“It’s a shame Parris had the [59-yard touchdown run] called back; it was a lightning bolt too,” Meyer said.Ohio State will look to win its second game in a row when the Buckeyes welcome UNLV into Ohio Stadium next Saturday at noon. read more

National Trust asks beachgoers to post pictures on Instagram to help monitor coastal

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The National Trust is asking beach-goers to post pictures on Instagram to help monitor coastal erosion.A photo stand has been erected at Studland Bay in Dorset, inviting passersby to stick their smartphones into a slot and snap photos.The sign then asks them to post the images on social media using the hashtag #NTshiftingshores.There is just one rule: no zooming or filters.They will then be swept up from social media by the charity and made into a timelapse film showing how the shoreline has changed over time.The National Trust, which manages more than 780 miles of coastlines across Britain, aims to use the data to help plan ahead to protect wildlife, flora, fauna and buildings.Hundreds of people have already posted pictures online, showering praise on the charity for its innovative idea and calling for it to be rolled out across all beaches.One Twitter user captioned their coastal photo: “For anyone who thought the Instagram generation needed to take a break from #social on their days out, why not embrace it and use it to your advantage?! #ntshiftingshores”.Another wrote: “Doing my bit for the National Trust project at Studland Bay #ntshiftingshores”.More than 400 people have published their photos on Instagram, with tourists from America and Thailand among those joining in. Pictures date back as far as June 2016.The National Trust says: “By understanding what is happening to the natural environment around our coast we can make well-informed choices about whether and where to continue maintaining hard sea defences, or to adapt and work with nature rather than against it.”Working with other land owners, communities, beach users and with local government we can create more joined up and better managed stretches of coastline.”The coming years will be critical to the future wellbeing of our coast and we will play our part.”The UK has one of the longest national coastline in Europe, stretching for more than 8,000 miles.Studland Bay is four miles long and has views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight.Erosion is when rocks along the coastline are worn away. This can happen when powerful waves smash against them, or pebbles carried by the sea grind down rocks like sandpaper. High winds, rain and flooding can also contribute.This can cause degradation of land and damage to infrastructure, as well as disrupt wildlife habitats.Storms and high tides battered UK coastlines in 2013 and 2014, causing “considerable damage” and levels of erosion that experts would normally see every five to 15 years, according to the National Trust. read more

State to appeal ruling in landmark surrogate birth cert case

first_imgTHE STATE is to lodge a Supreme Court appeal against a landmark ruling which allowed a biological mother to have her name included on her child’s birth certificate, even though the child was carried and delivered by a surrogate mother.The Department of Social Protection has confirmed that the Registrar General, against whom the original case was taken, will appeal the ruling.The purpose of the appeal is “to clarify a number of points of law of exceptional public importance”, the Department said.In a ruling in April, the High Court’s Justice Henry Abbott ruled that the genetic mother of twins who were born to a surrogate mother could be listed as the mother on each of the children’s birth certificates.The case came after the Registrar General required the children’s birth mother – in this case, the genetic mother’s sister – to be stated as the mother.“The judgement raises important questions about how motherhood may be determined under Irish law and has potentially very serious consequences which could, by linking motherhood exclusively to genetic connection, affect a potentially large number of families,” the Department said.The Department argued that the ruling could also limit the Oireachtas’s ability to legislate, in future, for the complex areas of surrogacy and assisted human reproduction. Legislation in this area was being planned for later this year, it said.“The appeal is therefore considered necessary both to bring certainty to this vital area of law and to ensure that the legislature’s scope to legislate is absolutely clear.”last_img read more

Android 32 heading to Motorola Xoom first

first_imgIf you own a Motorola Xoom tablet then congratulations, Google and Motorola are rolling out Android 3.2 to you first it seems.The main feature update that makes getting 3.2 worthwhile is a new screen compatibility mode. This mode tries to solve the problem of running apps that are not optimized for the larger tablet displays, and were only designed with smartphones in mind.Developers can set their apps to take advantage of the compatiblity mode with a couple of settings changes, or they can work on their app some more and put in larger display support. The second is the nicer of the two options for end users, but some developers won’t want to revisit older apps so Google decided a workaround was necessary.If you don’t own a Xoom there are some other features that may be desirable that make the upgrade to 3.2 worthwhile. The first is improved support for 7-inch tablets with the second being Qualcomm processor support that now includes chips other than those by Nvidia.With the Xoom now getting Android 3.2 it shouldn’t be long before it is rolled out to other tablets. But for the moment, it looks like Xoom owners are the lucky ones. It’s also a tablet that got a little more attractive recently to prospective buyers due to a price drop bringing it inline with the iPad. Motorola should certainly be seeing a sales spike this week because of it.Read more at CNET and Android Developerslast_img read more

La peur peutelle se transmettre de génération en génération

first_imgLa peur peut-elle se transmettre de génération en génération ?Selon une étude menée par des chercheurs américains, des souris conditionnées à craindre une odeur transmettent cette peur aux générations suivantes.Si vous cherchez à expliquer certaines de vos craintes et en particulier celles liées aux odeurs, commencez par interroger vos parents ou vos grands-parents. Une nouvelle étude menée par des chercheurs de la faculté de médecine de l’Université Emory, à Atlanta, suggère que les sensations provoquées par une odeur, en particulier la peur sont transmises de génération en génération.
Pour en arriver à de telles conclusions, l’équipe de recherche dirigée par Brian Dias et Kerry Ressler a mené une série d’expériences sur des souris mâles. Le protocole a consisté à faire émaner un effluve de parfum (à base d’acétophénone) identique à celui de la fleur de cerisier tout en infligeant aux rongeurs une décharge électrique. De cette manière, les scientifiques sont parvenus à conditionner leurs sujets à craindre cette odeur. Le sperme des souris traumatisées a ensuite été utilisé pour féconder des souris femelles et produire une première génération, puis une seconde dont le comportement a soigneusement été étudié. Les résultats, publiés dans la revue Nature Neuroscience vont dans le sens d’une transmission du traumatisme aux deux générations suivantes.Une peur inscrite dans l’organisme Les descendants montrent en effet des réactions de peur liées à l’odeur des fleurs de cerisier bien que ceux-ci n’aient jamais eu l’occasion de la sentir auparavant. Étrangement, cette sensibilité au parfum s’est accrue chez les générations suivantes. La transmission a été observée à la fois quand c’était la mère qui avait été conditionnée et quand c’était le père des rongeurs.Pour expliquer cela, les chercheurs ont observé le cerveau et l’ADN des souris et de leurs descendants. Ils ont constaté que l’encéphale de ces derniers présentait des modifications structurelles dans une zone cérébrale particulièrement régissant l’olfaction. Plus précisément, ils ont montré une augmentation des neurones qui produisent le récepteur connu pour détecter l’odeur. Mais l’ADN des sujets a également semblé présenter des transformations sur le gène responsable de la détection des odeurs.  Une transmission similaire chez l’homme ?À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour l’heure, ces résultats sont seulement applicables au modèle rongeur. Davantage d’études sont nécessaires avant que l’on puisse parler de transmission héréditaire des peurs chez l’homme et comprendre davantage les phobies, anxiétés ou troubles post-traumatiques. Toutefois, la découverte a d’ores et déjà provoqué l’enthousiasme des chercheurs qui considèrent qu’il s’agit là d’une nouvelle preuve d’un “héritage épigénétique transgénérationnel”. En d’autres termes, l’environnement pourrait donc modifier la génétique d’un individu, qui pourrait à son tour la transmettre à sa descendance.De leur côté, les chercheurs projettent de poursuivre leurs travaux afin de déterminer notamment si la transmission se prolonge sur les générations suivantes et comment cette réponse peut être éliminée.

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A Homer man has been arrested and charged with nine counts of sexual abuse of a minor, involving three teenage girls, according to the Alaska State Troopers. An arrest warrant was issued for Koch out of the Homer Court. Bail for the warrant was set at $10,000 and court approved third party. On March 6, Troopers in Anchor Point received a report that a 14 year old female had sexual relations with a 22 year old male. The girls mother reported finding out about the relationship and confronting the girl who admitted to the sexual relationship. The male was identified as Ethan Koch, 22 of Homer, according to an online Trooper dispatch posted on April 2. Troopers identified a total of 3 females ages 14-15 that Koch had engaged in sexual relations with. On April 1, Seward Troopers located Koch and arrested him on the outstanding warrant.  Koch was remanded into the Seward Jail on five counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the 2nd and four counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the 3rd.last_img read more

How the Cloud Could Huff and Puff and Blow Your Business Down

first_img 6 min read Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Creating a software-as-service company these days is easy and cheap. Code libraries and open-source projects for a company to piggyback on abound. Ready-to-use payment gateways are plentiful, and computing infrastructure is available from many public cloud providers.One might think that with the lowering of startup costs, the playing field is level. Not quite so fast.Read on to avoid some pain and walk through some lessons I’ve learned.Related: The Downsides to Cloud StorageBuild to scale. For cloud-based companies, the back-end infrastructure is what counts. I am not bashing public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Rackspace or Microsoft’s Azure, just to name a few, and not advocating that every company should build a private cloud for its needs (putting the company’s hardware in a data center and being responsible for managing it).Rather, executives should understand the type of business they have, how fast it’s growing and their company’s moment in its life cycle. Previously when I served as the head of operations for a public company, my staff and I built our whole compute infrastructure using a public cloud provider. It was a great way to start and keep down costs.As the company grew, we could deploy more “compute instances” to handle the load and pay only for what we used. (An “instance” refers to the allocation of computer processing units, memory and storage that the public cloud provider reserves for customer use, much like how in the physical world more servers are deployed to handle a workload.)There was no need to worry about purchasing hardware, connecting the different components of the network or fine-tuning the processing throughput. The biggest benefit of the public cloud is not having to worry about anything — at least not initially.Then we launched a new product that became hugely popular and the company’s traffic spiked; thousands of new users signed up weekly. We had to deploy hundreds of new compute instances in the public cloud. We had to hire more people to manage the deployment of new instances, moving different instances across various zones and a ton of other things related to running and maintaining systems online.When something crashes (as it will in a public cloud environment), someone has to be alerted to take action. What a company pays for in additional computing power to keep its business running can quickly skyrocket.It’s not that a company can’t scale properly with use of a public cloud; it’s just that managers need to seriously consider the costs.At my former company, we eventually decided to move everything to a private cloud. This meant adopting the traditional data-center model, in which we owned the hardware. The whole thing was configured to our specifications and we had better control. We saved millions of dollars annually and the improvement to our service was tremendous. We could finally handle the traffic increase without breaking the bank or inconveniencing the people we needed to support.Related: 10 Questions to Ask When Choosing a Cloud ProviderA fable of three clouds. For understanding the different types of cloud operations, The Story of the Three Little Pigs offers an apt analogy. The first pig built its house from straw. The structure was constructed quickly, providing space and cover from the outdoors but pretty flimsy when the big bad wolf lurked nearby.The same is true for most public-cloud deployments. If a company faces a huge increase in transactional compute power and needs to deploy multiple instances, the public cloud may fail and leave the firm running for help.The second pig built its house from sticks, somewhat bigger and stronger than the straw one. That’s similar to the route taken by some companies after realizing that the public cloud may not be best or deciding that their firms have reached an inflection point such that they should build their own infrastructure. And so companies opt fo the data center available at the best cost, put in hardware and hope everything will be fine.Since the second pig used better materials and a different strategy, it assumed it would not meet the same fate as the first pig. But it, too, failed to consider the project carefully enough and ultimately did not survive.While having a private cloud might seem better initially, companies failing to take the proper precautions will meet the same fate as those using a public cloud — or worse.That’s why companies’ constructing a really well-built private cloud is like the third pig’s building a house of bricks. A well-planned deployment of a private cloud can save companies money and allow them to scale as needed.This is the route that my current company, Axcient has taken. My staff and I decided we had to build a solid foundation, which meant spending time and money to create our own cloud infrastructure. This is not cheap, but we’ll be able to scale, manage everything more easily and have complete control over the hardware, software and cloud orchestration. (We recently dhanged the way storage components interact with our servers and how our software talks to the back end, resulting in a fourfold increase in storage and a 66 percent plunge in power consumption. Such fine-tuning can’t be done with a public cloud.)Some company managers are surprised to learn that public cloud infrastructures require a ton of work: Managers still must manage the different instances, constantly monitor and correct failures and hire people to care for the infrastructure. Small mom-and-pop shops or life-style businesses can be fine accessing a public cloud provider. But other companies need to carefully weigh the options. Cloud-based companies that scale fast may reach a point when their infrastructure won’t be able to support them. Waiting too long to make a change could be fatal. Managers should realize sooner than later when it’s time to make a move.Related: Making the Cloud Work for Your Business April 30, 2014 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more
