A new era dawns for 49er softball program

admin No Comments

first_imgSowder, a 1993 Long Beach State graduate who was an All-America shortstop for the 49ers and was inducted into the school’s Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998, makes her debut as her alma mater’s head softball coach as her team embarks on a five-game slate during a tournament this weekend at Arizona State University. The 49ers will take on Oregon (3:30 p.m.) and Wisconsin (5:30) this afternoon, then face Syracuse and Texas Saturday afternoon before wrapping up things against the host team Sunday. Sowder was an assistant for Pete Manarino for 11 seasons (and the associate head coach since 2003) before Manarino retired after 23 years at the school early last summer. She was hired by Athletic Director Vic Cegles to replace her former coach on Aug. 11. It’s not accurate to say “she hit the floor running” after Cegles gave her the job: She has always been on the go when it comes to the LBSU softball program. “Pete always gave me a lot of responsibilities,” she said. And the transition has been as smooth as Cegles, and anyone who knows Sowder, anticipated it would be. “I still talk to Pete (now the athletic director at JSerra High in San Juan Capistrano) all the time,” she said of Manarino, who will be inducted into the Century Club Hall of Fame this evening. “And (pitching coach) Stephanie (Swenson) has been around for four years and Ralph (Levy, in his 18th season as a volunteer coach with the program) is back. I have them to bounce things off of and they are always honest with me.” An addition to the staff, former UCLA All-America Taira Flowers, a starter on Team USA’s gold-medal winning Olympic squad in 2004, has already had a significant impact on this team. “She is our hitting coach and has done a phenomenal job,” Sowder said. “I’m confident we’re going to be a lot more productive (at the plate, where the 49ers hit just .234 and averaged 3.3 runs per game during a 31-22 final season under Manarino). And we’ve got a lot of speed and will be aggressive (on the base paths).” The 49ers return seven players who started at least two-thirds of the team’s games last season. One of those, however, is not 2006 Big West Pitcher of the Year Michelle Turner (26-11 with a 1.51 earned run average), who didn’t maintain her academic eligibility for her senior season. “It’s unfortunate for her that she couldn’t play her final year,” Sowder said, “because she is an extremely talented pitcher.” In her absence, junior Lacy Tyler (3-1, 4.98 ERA), who threw pretty well down the stretch last season, is expected to be the staff’s ace. Tyler, a starter at shortstop as a freshman and in the outfield (.222 with seven doubles and 14 runs batted in) last season, was an All-CIF pitcher at La Mirada High. “Lacy has definitely grown up more (physically) than any other player in the program,” Sowder said. “She was great in the weight room and was a great leader for us during the fall (workouts). She had some great games at the end of the season for us. It’s just a matter of her gaining experience (on the mound) and she’s going to get that fast.” Also expected to throw in Tempe this weekend are sophomore Melissa DeMarco (6.1 innings in five appearances last season) and Bridgette Pagano, an All-CIF selection at Temecula Valley High last spring. “Melissa worked hard in the fall and she knows we need her to step up,” Sowder said. “She’ll get a lot more innings this season.” Much is expected from Pagano, short term and long term. “She is someone we targeted very early in the recruiting process,” Sowder said. “She’s got a lot of confidence , is very strong with good velocity and good command of all of her pitches.” Having a catcher, junior Brooke LeSage (.211 with 11 RBI), beginning her third season as a starter can only help the pitching staff’s development, Sowder believes. “She worked a lot with the staff in the fall and did a lot to move them along,” she said. Jonae Perez (an all-Big West selection after hitting a team-best .303 with 12 RBI last season) returns at first base, as does Jessica Beaver (.210, 12 extra base hits and 22 RBI) at shortstop. “Perez is a very smart and calm player, and very solid defensively as well,” Sowder said. “And Beaver had a tremendous fall and is a great leader.” Newcomers Whitney Radcliff (Mt. San Antonio College) and Ashley Levine (Redondo High) are competing for the starting job at second base, and senior Panita Thanatharn is counted on to step in at third. “There is no-clear starter at second but both players are solid,” Sowder. “(Gabby) Soto (a sophomore from Banning High) is a possibility there, too.” Thanatharn “is just starting to get all of her speed back (after suffering a broken leg two years ago),” Sowder added. There is plenty of experience in the outfield where Kourtnee Gervasi (.235 with eight extra base hits and 13 RBI) returns in left, sophomore Brianna Goad (.240, seven extra base hits and 12 RBI) is a second-year starter in center and Tyler played most of the time in right a year ago. “Tyler will be there (in right field) when she’s not pitching,” Sowder explained. “And (Franciska) Morlet (a junior from St. Paul who started 11 games last season and hit .214 in just 14 at bats) and (Ashley) Weber (a sophomore from Mater Dei High) will also play a lot in the outfield as well.” In a survey of Big West Conference coaches, the 49ers were picked to finish third (behind Cal State Fullerton and Cal Poly). Sound about right? “Yes,” Sowder, “but that is a long way off.” Indeed. The 49ers are scheduled to play in six weekend tournaments, including the Long Beach Invitational at Mayfair Park (March 9-11) before they play their first Big West game at home against Cal State Northridge on March 31. “Am I optimistic? Absolutely,” she said. “I’m very excited and I’m sure there are going to be a few butterflies (this weekend).” There will be, that is, if she finds the time to squeeze them in. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SA Sevens rugby targets Rio Olympics

admin No Comments

first_img7 February 2014 The South African men’s and women’s Sevens rugby teams will automatically qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio if they secure top-four finishes in their respective 2014/15 HSBC Sevens World Series competitions, the International Rugby Board (IRB) confirmed on Thursday. This follows ratification by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) of the inaugural Rugby Sevens qualification process that will feature a blend of the existing men’s and women’s series structures, regional competitions and a world play-off, ensuring universal representation and the participation of the best teams and players.Qualification structure Under the qualification structure for the men’s competition, four nations will qualify from the 2014/15 Sevens World Series, one nation from each of the six IRB regional competitions, one from the world play-off, and automatic qualification for Brazil, as the hosts of the Olympic Games. The women will follow a similar format, with four teams confirmed via the IRB Women’s Sevens World Series, six from the regional competitions, the world play-off winner and automatic qualification for Brazil.Strong medal contenders South Africa currently leads the 2013/14 men’s World Series standings by a slender margin over rivals New Zealand. Should they continue to be one of the leading lights in the World Series, the Blitzbokke will go into the Rio Olympics as one of South Africa’s strongest contenders for a gold medal. In the past five years, South Africa has won the World Series once and finished second twice. After placing second in 2012/13 and winning three tournaments, coach Neil Powell’s charges have lifted two titles in four events so far this season, which suggests the team is finding greater consistency and playing at a higher level than ever before.Springbok Women The Springbok Women Sevens, meanwhile, finished the 2012/2013 World Series in eighth position. A similar finish in 2014/15 would leave them outside of the core group featuring on the 2013/2014 circuit. However, with the South African Rugby Union having contracted 15 players to the elite women’s Sevens squad, their chances of qualifying next season will no doubt be higher.‘Great for rugby’ IRB chairman Bernard Lapasset said in a statement on Thursday: “We are excited and honoured for rugby Sevens to be making its Olympic Games debut in Rio and believe that the Games will be great for rugby and rugby will be great for the Games. “We are working in partnership with the Rio 2016 Organising Committee and the IOC to deliver a rugby Sevens event that delivers outstanding competition, showcases our most skilful players, delivers a very special vibrant atmosphere and engages new and young audiences around the world.” Referring to the continuing spread of the Sevens game, Lapasset added: “We are delighted to be announcing a truly global qualification structure that presents the opportunity for all our member unions to participate, ensures at least one team from each IRB region qualifies, and delivers the best teams and players to ensure Rugby Sevens contributes significantly to the success of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.” SAinfo reporter and SA Rugbylast_img read more

32″ 80cm Long Hair Heat Resistant Spiral Curly Cosplay Wig : Lovely, but easily ruined.

admin No Comments

first_imgFantastically good quality even comes with a wig cap but i would say order it early as it didn’t come in time. When ordering it tod me one date once i pressed buy it told me a later date very misleading but pleased with product and will wear it for a different occasion. Decent for the price, nice colours. . Not quite as curly as pictured. I found that the very ends were a bit messy and it was a little long so i cut the bottom layer to match the next one, it made it look a lot more full and it’s a better length for me. It now goes down to my underbust. A litttle on the shiny side but easily fixed and i suspect it will probably tangle well. Much better than what i was expecting, was in a nice condition and was pretty comfortable to wear, it was a bit too long for what i needed it for (cosplay) so i trimmed and styled it without any issues. Wore it all day with no problems. This is a fantastic wig, i bought the blond one first the colour is lovely. It’s very plump and like others i agree it suits better while wearing a hat, though that’s just my preference it works well as a sand alone. It’s very delicate so it will take a lot of care and looking after. Bought the brown and will be buying others. Decent for the price, nice colours. . Not quite as curly as pictured.

Delivery was very fast as well and i picked standard delivery, came within 3 days which i was very happy with.

Really impressed with the wig, colour is great, it has a lovely shine to it and feels really soft. Delivery was very fast as well and i picked standard delivery, came within 3 days which i was very happy with. Girlfriend loves it, will be buying more in different colours, so she can change her hair colour when ever she pleases without the negative effects of hair dyes and bleach. Lovely hair, this is my daily wig now, it is more lightweight than the wig i am used to wearing so what i do is i buy two wigs and wear them together to get more fullness and i just attach with kirby grips,(or you can sow them together but i keep separate for ease of brushing) the top wig sits securely on the bottom wig and you cannot notice i am wearing two. However if you are not used to a fuller wig and just like it slim line then this wig is still good. I prefer a straight fringe so i cut the fringe with hairdresser scissors, which i had to do with the wig i used to wear also. I love the lose curls in this wig and have had many compliments, i will continue to buy from here :)update: i feel this wig has gotten thinner, i could never go out just wearing one and now i buy three and wear them secured together with kirby grips, this gives a full lovely appearance. Pretty wig with an annoying flaw. . Wig itself is pretty, however annoyingly there is a visible piece of dark grey netting at the parting/hairline that appears to be part of the design, but is very noticeable at the middle of your forehead when wearing the wig. Unfortunate because if it wasn’t for that this would be perfect, as in all other aspects it’s one of the nicest wigs i’ve ever bought. May just have been a design fault with my particular wig, but unfortunately i was unable to ask for a return/replacement as i needed it for a costume a couple of days after it arrived, so now am stuck with it. Lovely, but easily ruined. . Perfect the first time i wore it, but it got incredibly tangled. The second time i wore it i had to cut off about 6 inches of matted ends. Too tangled to wear a 3rd time and had to be thrown away. Wore this to go with my wonder woman costume and people actually thought it was my real hair. I really liked how it looked – it does look amazing -. I really liked how it looked – it does look amazing – but if you looked at it from the top the mesh thing shows through and even though i hardly wore it apart from a couple of minutes on two occasions it started falling apart a bit. So it was sort of a single-use thing which is a shame, because it does look really good.

He’s come to believe that one of the best opportunities for change in the world rests on the shoulders of middle managers, those who daily influence the effectiveness and development of the common people of our day.

Tom Peters believes that the concerns are valid, but he doesn’t believe it’s going to be an apocalypse if we can make the adjustments now that will enable us to pivot as a society. In this conversation, you’ll hear what Tom believes needs to happen in our thinking to enable us to not only survive but thrive in the new world that’s coming. You’ll also learn why business owners and service providers today need to continue working hard at what they do even though robots may be coming to take their jobs. It’s a fascinating and valuable conversation you won’t want to miss.Every business has a moral responsibility to develop the people who work for them ~ Tom PetersWhen you consider that the average middle-level manager in any business has at least a handful of people who are direct reports, and you open your eyes to the fact that the manager in question is one of the primary leaders and influencers in the lives of those they lead, you see the foundation for the point Tom Peters makes on this episode: Every business has a moral responsibility to develop the people who work for them.

Tom’s expertise and experience are unquestioned and his ongoing emphasis on the impact excellence makes in the lives of employees and customers is one that needs to be heard over and over. This episode sounds the charge again and is one that will inspire you to evaluate what you’re doing in the role you occupy at your company so that you can up your game and make an even greater impactThe pinnacle of achievement has nothing to do with CEOsTom Peters once read a post on social media that said something to the effect that Elon Musk is the greatest thing that has happened to the world in recent years. While Tom has nothing against Elon and actually admires much of what he’s done, his response was both classic Tom Peters, and deeply insightful. He said that he holds Elon in high regard, almost as high a regard as the elementary school teacher who works diligently every day to influence the lives of 12 young human beings… and almost as much as the doctor who, in spite of the bureaucracy of his organization, serves 10 hours in a volunteer clinic every month. It’s perspectives like that, that have made Tom the leader and influencer he is, and you’ll get to hear them first-hand in this conversation.The pinnacle of #$achievement has nothing to do with #CEOs.

Delhi, say goodbye to rooftop parties. NDMC imposes ban post Kamala Mills fire

admin No Comments

first_imgThis is going to be the end of terrace parties in the posh Lutyen’s Delhi. Identifying the rooftop parties or those on the terrace as major safety hazard, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has put an immediate ban. This not only applies to the bars and restaurants in upscale markets like Connaught Place and Khan Market, but also the clubs and cultural centres in the New Delhi area.Well-placed sources said the members of Parliament (MPs) living in the area would also be advised against holding terrace parties or get-togethers from the safety point of view. This is essentially being done fearing structural safety of these decades-old bungalows and flats.The central public works department (CPWD) is already in the process of demolishing the existing flats and constructing low-rise buildings for the MPs in North and South Avenues. The orders were issued by the civic body on December 30, a day after a major fire engulfed a rooftop restaurant in Mumbai killing over a dozen people.The order categorically said any violation would lead to immediate cancellation of licence.”Restaurant and bar owners must abide by the trade licence conditions and there should not be any laxity on the fire safety measures. They must strictly comply with the seating capacity in each restaurant. It must be ensured that the firefighting equipment is in place and operational to meet any exigency. Use of terrace is strictly prohibited,” the order said.An NDMC official said the order also applied to institutional properties and clubs falling in its jurisdiction, and any violation will lead to cancellation of licence. For instance, food and drinks on the terrace and rooftop of the National Sports Club of India has been stopped with immediate effect, informed a member of the managing committee.advertisement”There have also been reports of terrace parties being organised in residential areas in the Lutyens’ Bungalow Zone (LBZ). These include some MP bungalows and flats where such gatherings have been reported. We are issuing advisory to all the residents to avoid terrace parties to ensure public safety,” a source said.According to NDMC, the rooftops of commercial buildings are meant for fire-fighting arrangements and are not supposed to be used for commercial activity. The LBZ has over 400 flats for MPs that were built over 60 years ago. Officials said the old construction has already outlived their life and posed safety hazard.”For last few years, we have been getting regular complaints of cracks in the wall, leakage, blocked pipeline and plaster coming out,” a CPWD official said. While issuing the ban order, the NDMC health department has also maintained that health licence to restaurants, clubs and eateries not only affected the health and sanitation, but also resulted into additional pressure on civic amenities like water, electricity, sewerage and parking.”Any property found to be violating the orders will be subject to cancellation of licence without any notice and the property will be sealed immediately,” it said. It may be noted that the NDMC has already shut down the roof top restaurants in Connaught Place.last_img read more
