Sharks winning streak ends with loss to Coyotes

admin no comments

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — The streak ends with a letdown in the desert.The Arizona Coyotes played the role of spoilers Wednesday night, snapping the Sharks seven-game winning streak with a 6-3 win on home ice. The Coyotes took advantage of a Sharks group that was playing the second game of a back-to-back after an emotional win over the Pittsburgh Penguins and a flight out to Arizona.The Sharks probably deserve a get-out-of-jail-free card for this one. They were due for a loss after opening the month …last_img read more

An Anthem for Agriculture

admin no comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest What would your theme song be? The Ohio State Buckeyes have “Across the Field” and “Buckeye Battle Cry” to get fired up to and “We Are The Champions” and “Don’t Stop Believing” are always very popular songs to the blood pumping at various sporting events. These songs are used to motivate, intimidate and eliminate the competition.When it comes to Agriculture, we all find ourselves needing a kick in the butt every once in a while. Granted, we love what we do and we wouldn’t want to do anything else, but sometimes that 4 o’clock alarm comes way too soon and way too often. Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up, stumble to the kitchen for that cup of java and have a song blaring just for you to get you out that door for another long day of hard work?Country music is one of my true passions. It is part of my background, my heritage and my career and there are many songs to choose from in Country music that you may consider your Anthem.Depending on your color of paint choice, you have Craig Morgan’s “International Harvester” or “Big Green Tractor” from Jason Aldean to choose from.If it has been a good year I might recommend “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” from John Denver or if is a year that you’d much rather forget about try Marty Stuart’s “The Farmer’s Blues”.Some songs just hit home, literally. Tim McGraw’s “Where the Green Grass Grows” comes to mind as does Kenny Chesney’s “Back Where I Come From”.Some songs just get it right as far as our way of life and make you proud to be who you are. Rodney Adkins’ song called “Friends with Tractors” and “I’m From the Country” also covers that category.Even weather related music could fit what farmers go through.  “Rain Is a Good Thing” from Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean’s “Amarillo Sky” might do here.Then if you really feel good about the ways things are all around (and yourself) you might cut loose with Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractors Sexy”. Then make up for it with Craig Morgan’s “That’s What I Love About Sunday”.So, what would you Anthem, or theme song, be? I would love to hear what songs keep you going when that jolt of caffeine doesn’t quite do the trick. Drop me a line at [email protected] and if you include one from my favorite, King George Strait, you’ll get some bonus points.last_img read more

Storybird: A Family-Friendly Storytelling Tool That Has Nothing to Do with Twitter

admin no comments

first_imgA little bit like a slide presentation app and a little bit like Whrrl, Storybird brings ease of use and a captivating interface to the sharing of words and pictures online.Using artwork from talented illustrators, Storybird allows users to create and display narratives of their own choosing. The site and its library of stories are currently particularly suitable for younger Internet and iPhone users. Best of all is the “story maker” section of the site, which allows users to drag and drop images, edit text, and create customizable stories to share with friends and family.Collaboration is as simple as inviting others via email to edit a story. Users take turns finishing a story in a fashion reminiscent of storytelling games played by children with insufficient access to televisions.Users can also create reading lists of stories for sharing and later perusal. Stories are rated for particular age groups, as well. Both of these features signal this site’s usefulness in the classroom.For more specifics on how to use the site to read and create stories, check out this demo video: Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Creating stories was remarkably simple. We would have preferred better sorting of artwork by keywords or – better yet – a search function, either for artwork or for story subjects. For in-class use especially, the site must be searchable and results must be fairly accurate; it took us some time to even find stories grouped by tag. And we would love to see more sharing options for stories, including embedding options.Still, we loved this item from the Storybird blog about a three-and-a-half year old boy who was told about the site while in the middle of his evening bath:When asked “would you like to make a story with your dad?” Josh squealed “yes!” and proceeded to hop out of the bath, still dirty and soaking. “I’m finished! I’m finished!” he insisted. Five minutes later with hair still wet he produced his first Storybird. He made another one before bed, then demanded his dad read him all the Storybirds in the public library. In the morning, he woke up to say “I want to make a Storybird.”All inherent charm aside, Storybird is simple and intuitive enough to encourage read/write thinking and action in the youngest of Internet users, which is something we applaud and encourage.The site, which went live last Friday, September 4, is in its first version (the team has decided that the term “beta” is beyond overused). We found Storybird via the Go2Web20 directory.

BCCI selection committee strength back to 5: Paranjpe, Khoda reinstated

admin no comments

first_imgThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selectors will be back in full strength as the pair of Jatin Paranjpe and Gagan Khoda have been reinstated in consultation with the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC).The pair were dropped from the selection panel as per the previous Supreme Court order for not being Test cricketers.The five member selection panel had been necessitated as per revised clause of the Supreme Court order dated October 9th which read, “Until the elections to the BCCI take place, the COA is empowered to consult with the Cricket Advisory Committee, comprising of reputed former international cricketers and to constitute a Committee of Selectors consistent with the criteria.”The now complete set of selectors will be tasked with picking India’s squad for the last two Tests. It’s unlikely that the team for the final two Tests will see too many changes, especially given the Indian team’s all round show in the third Test at Trent Bridge.The trio that form the CAC, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman too fail to pass the muster as per the new conflict of interest guidelines. But the BCCI Committee of administrators (COA) have been given a legal ‘ok’ by the Apex Court to continue with the legends till elections are held.The junior selection committee which has to meet to select the Indian under-19 team for a quadrangular tournament to prepare for the Asia Cup is also being boosted by reinforcements.Amit Sharma who had to move out as per the old order has been reinstated and another name is also being deliberated upon.advertisement”Three names have been given to the CAC and they are in the process of finalising the same. This will make the junior selection committee into a five member team as mandated by the court,” a BCCI source told India Today.last_img read more

I’ve been available to play every game and the manager has given me a lot of confidence.“Since I arrived at the Club, my team-mates have been amazing with me.

How he got the best out of every player — those that played a lot, those that didn’t play as much — creating a synergy with a lot of respect between those inside the team.”That puts him in a very special position in my life and a very particular position. I think he’s a nonconformist genius, a methodical genius, a perfectionist genius and I think that makes him unique.”Wherever he goes, he can win more or he can win less, but I think a player that works with him will never be the same. Every day is a learning [curve], it’s a class like you were going to college. It’s a discipline because you learn something more.” last_img read more

On reflection, when you see it, it doesn’t look a good tackle, and even though he hasn’t meant it, the referee’s role is not to decide if it’s an accident, but whether it’s dangerous.“I like a tackle, but once he’s got the yellow for the first, I think the red for the second is inevitable.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
