Ohio State womens volleyball sweeps Rutgers in regularseason finale

Credit: Ed Momot / For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team capped off its regular season with a dominating effort on Saturday, steamrolling Rutgers on senior night in St. John Arena.It took only three sets (26-24, 25-7, 25-12) and 74 minutes for the No. 16 team to take down the Scarlet Knights (4-28, 1-19), as the Buckeyes led for nearly the entire match.OSU finished the regular season with an overall record of 23-9 and placed sixth in the Big Ten with a 12-8 mark.Fittingly, senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell led all players with 14 kills on a proficient .440 hitting percentage in her final regular-season home game. Fellow senior outside hitter Katie Mitchell added 10 kills at an even better .529 clip.The three other Buckeye seniors saw plenty of action as well. Middle blockers Tyler Richardson and Andrea Kacsits had seven and six kills, respectively, aided by the absence of junior Taylor Sandbothe. Richardson, along with freshman outside hitter Audra Appold, also led her team with three blocks.Freshman Taylor Hughes started and saw the majority of the playing time at setter with 32 assists, but senior Emily Ruetter did contribute four helpers.As the score would indicate, OSU far outpaced Rutgers offensively, posting a .319 attack percentage compared to the Scarlet Knights’ dismal .043 rate.Serving also played a key part in OSU’s commanding win. The Buckeyes racked up nine aces on the night, their second best total of the season.Libero Valeria León led the way with five aces, adding to another solid defensive night for the junior, who had a game-high 18 digs.Although the Buckeyes wound up having an overall impressive night from the service line, the match didn’t start off so well in that regard.Despite Rutgers’ abysmal .105 hitting percentage in the first set, it managed to hang around thanks to four blocks from its defense and four service errors by OSU.The Buckeyes managed to take decisive late lead, 22-17, but a 7-1 run by the Scarlet Knights allowed them to take a 24-23 advantage. Guided by two Campbell kills and a Rutgers error, however, OSU survived its only scare of the evening.Powered by six aces — four from León — the second frame featured the Buckeyes’ most lopsided win in any set this season. Behind a .417 attack percentage (and a brutal minus-.136 rate by Rutgers), the Scarlet and Gray raced out to a 16-2 lead — powered by a 12-0 run — and took an 18-point victory into the locker room for the intermission.It didn’t get any better for Rutgers after the break. With four kills each from Campbell, Mitchell and Kacsits, the Buckeyes attacked .387 for the set, which was more than enough to overpower another lowly percentage (.094) by the Scarlet Knights.While OSU might be done playing at home in the regular season, it could have at least one more match in St. John Arena.The team will now turn its attention to the postseason as it hopes to host the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament by earning a top-16 seed. The Buckeyes will find out their fate when the selection show airs Sunday at 9 p.m. read more

Menacing Harvey knocking on Texas coast as Category 4 storm

first_imgCORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — With time running out, tens of thousands of people fled Friday from the path of an increasingly menacing-looking Hurricane Harvey as it took aim at a wide swath of the Texas Gulf Coast that includes oil refineries, chemical plants and dangerously flood-prone Houston, the nation’s fourth-largest city.Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned that the monster system would be “a very major disaster,” and the forecasts drew fearful comparisons to Hurricane Katrina, one of the deadliest ever to strike the U.S.“We know that we’ve got millions of people who are going to feel the impact of this storm,” said Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman and meteorologist for the National Hurricane Center. “We really pray that people are listening to their emergency managers and get out of harm’s way.”Fueled by warm Gulf of Mexico waters, Harvey grew rapidly, accelerating from a Category 1 early in the morning to a Category 4 by evening. Its transformation from an unnamed storm to a life-threatening behemoth took only 56 hours, an incredibly fast intensification.Landfall was predicted for late Friday or early Saturday near Rockport, a fishing-and-tourist town about 30 miles northeast of Corpus Christi.If it does not lose significant strength, the system will come ashore as the fiercest hurricane to hit the U.S. in 13 years and the strongest to strike Texas since 1961’s Hurricane Carla, the most powerful Texas hurricane on record.Aside from the winds of 130 mph (201 kph) and storm surges up to 12 feet (4 meters), Harvey was expected to drop prodigious amounts of rain — up to 3 feet. The resulting flooding, one expert said, could be “the depths of which we’ve never seen.”last_img read more

Ajay Devgn has revealed that he and his family don’t pay attention to trolls who make such comments using fake identities. “Jo bhi yeh karte hain, unka mindset bakwaas hota hai (The mindset of people who do these things is rubbish). So we too, don’t bother about all that, nor do we pay any heed to such nonsensical comments made through fake identities,” Devgn had revealed in an interview with Deccan Chronicle.”Honestly speaking, those people don’t really matter. But I feel bad sometimes when my kids go through such harsh trolling. She (Nysa) used to get upset over trolling earlier, but now she doesn’t care about it anymore. She knows how to deal with it. She has accepted that there will be some people who will keep judging no matter what,” Devgn told IANS.Ajay Devgn’s Total Dhamaal failed to gain any critical appreciation. Ajay, who was last seen playing an extended special appearance in Simmba, has received massive applause his latest offering – De De Pyaar De.

As the city develops in line with the vision of the UAE’s leadership, we are constantly striving to achieve greater heights. Meraas has been mindful of this, while also being focused on the nation’s emphasis on its people’s happiness and quality of life. We are set to achieve many engineering feats at Bluewaters and are delivering a destination which will establish a new benchmark for modern design. However, we are proudest of the fact that it will bring people together and create enriching experiences to support the growth of Dubai as a global hub.”Bluewaters features several courtyards, intimate pedestrian spaces and scenic walkways that boast a green and lush landscape. Central and Sunset Avenues gently separate the three zones, while North and South Walks allow pedestrians to stand at the water’s edge and gaze out at the sea, or the city beyond.Urban buzz at The WharfThe Wharf, Bluewaters’ lifestyle retail area set against the backdrop of Ain Dubai, will have 132 retail and dining outlets dotted across the boulevard in low-rise structures. Walkways crisscross the district, shaded by trees, palms and visually striking light features.Food and beverage at The Wharf range from licensed fine-dining concepts at the waterfront to quirky eateries, and an eclectic mix of cafés, restaurants and intimate bistros that serve a wide range of global cuisines. More concepts and stores will be opening gradually over the coming couple of months.Central Avenue borders the landside of The Wharf, while North Walk and Wharf Avenue edge the waterfront, circling Ain Dubai Plaza beneath the observation wheel. A 265-metre pedestrian bridge, The Wharf Link, connects this area to The Beach on the coast of mainland Dubai. Bluewaters Wharf Station will serve as a dock for water transport. It also boasts over 2,000 parking bays, spanning basement and podium levels.Statement residences with a viewBluewaters Residences comprises 10 elegant mid-rise towers featuring 698 apartments, four penthouses and 17 townhouses, set over a podium that offers stunning views of the sea or Ain Dubai.

Now a New Solution to Streamline Real Estate Transactions
Now a New Solution to Streamline Real Estate Transactions

first_img Black Knight Inc Expedite Close Lenders Lending Transaction Real Estate Transaction Servicers Solution Streamline technology 2018-02-05 Radhika Ojha in News, Technology February 5, 2018 700 Views Florida-based Black Knight Inc., a software, data, and analytics solutions provider for the mortgage and real estate industry, announced on Monday that the first phase of its new solution LoanSphere Expedite Close would be available this year. The solution provides an electronic closing fulfillment process, enabling seamless and secure online interactions between the real estate agent, lender, settlement agent, and consumer from contract through the closing.“In a real estate transaction process, roughly a third of real estate transactions don’t even involve a loan. [Expedite Close] is a little different from its peers in that we are looking to bring together all participants of a transaction, be it the consumer, the realtor, the broker, the settlement agent or closer, and all the way through the investor and servicer,” Andy Crisenbery, SVP and Managing Director of Black Knight’s Lending Solutions Division told MReport.The solution includes enhanced workflow and decisioning capabilities as well as increased automation to support the full closing process. It provides a common workspace for all the participants of a transaction and allows the data and supplementing artefacts to follow along each particular of the transaction. “We allow access to the workspace to either read data and documents out or to provide data and documents directly from source systems, depending upon who that person is in that transaction,” said Crisenbery. Expedite Close is capable of integrating with existing systems and technologies to enhance and streamline them. “We are not looking to change the technology that already may be in place.

Cyprus for kids is more than just waterparks
Cyprus for kids is more than just waterparks

first_imgDo you remember when that CTO map of Cyprus was all we had? It was so good, you’ve probably still got a copy in your car somewhere, even though you’ve been using Google Maps and GPS for years. However, if you’ve lived here for any length of time you’ll know that both pale in comparison with the roadside yiayia: possibly the most accurate form of navigation ever to exist. When it comes to tracking down something in a village your best bet is still just to drive there and ask. Which just proves the value of native knowledge.It’s this local expertise that’s the premise behind the latest map of Cyprus. A mine of information, it’s packed with interesting detail, fascinating facts, and stuff only a long-time local would know. Hand-drawn and gorgeously illustrated, it’s also the first of its kind in terms of local cartography. Because this, unlike every other map of the island, is aimed at your kids…“The idea of a kids’ map came when my granddaughter came to visit us and we had to think about what activities – besides the beaches – were suitable for children,” explains the map’s author, Christiane Sternberg, a writer and journalist who, although originally from Germany, has lived in Cyprus for over a decade. Known for her off-beat projects (she’s one of the authors behind the graphic novel Aphrodite – The Naked Truth) and her passion for the island – “it’s been a long relationship, but I’m still in love!” she laughs” – Christiane teamed up with graphic designer Marcos Gittis and illustrator Nicolas Rivero to bring cartographical Cyprus to life: an undertaking that, she explains, fills a real gap in the market.“If you’re on the forums, you know the same questions are always asked: ‘I’m coming to Cyprus with my kids’, or ‘My grandchildren are coming to visit me. What can we do?’ The answers and suggestions were always the same few things,” she reveals, “and yet I knew from my own experience that there was far more to Cyprus than just waterparks! Plus,” she adds, “there are ways to make what is there more interesting and accessible to kids: when my own grandchildren visited the Paphos Archaeological Park, we came home and created our own mosaics; it made the visit more entertaining and provided an engaging learning experience at the same time.”To this end, Cyprus for Kids is more than just a map. Yes, one side is a gorgeous topographical representation of the island, dotted with fun activities and places to visit, eye-catching illustrations of treasure chests and flamingos, and interesting factoids. But the other is a cornucopia of information on the high points of each district, perfectly pitched for kids between the ages of four and 12.“There’s just so much to explore on the island, and though we knew there were booklets and brochures aimed at the younger generation, there was no map specifically for children,” says Christiane. “At the same time, many of the parents themselves will be unfamiliar with maps – they’re probably in the region of 30 to 35 years of age, and may have grown up using satnav or GPS. But an actual map gives you so much more… No longer are you just going from point A to point B; with a topographical map you can see the bigger picture: the surrounding sites and attractions, the mountains and rivers, beaches and lakes, rather than just the roads. And that, I think, opens up new possibilities for spontaneity and discovery. And,” she adds, “kids love the colour and the illustrations. They like finding the symbols from the key. They enjoy being involved in the decision-making process. When you can see that the mountains are just 20 minutes from Limassol, it opens up new worlds…”While this allows older kids to explore the island semi-autonomously, and suggest places they might want to visit, Christiane suggests that it’s also of value to younger children. “I imagine the parents and kids reading the map together, discussing their upcoming trip to Paphos, for example, and working out what there is en route that the kids themselves might find fun to do.”Then, of course, there are the follow-up activities, and as a writer, ex-teacher and grandmother herself, Christiane is only too aware of the hands-on involvement and local titbits that fascinate the young. Intriguing factoids on Name Days, Wishing Trees, the Evil Eye, and Why Cypriot Kids Stay Up Later Than You all feature in the text, along with suggestions as to why the local sea turtles are so special, and how to make your own carob bar. Included in the scores of activities, we’ve got Segway Tours of Nicosia (so much more interesting for kids than just walking down Ledra!), Chocolate Workshops, a secret maze, and a mermaid cruise.While Christiane wrote the text (aided by Mark Fields, who helped with the editing), and Marcos worked on the graphics, it’s Nicolas Rivero who hand-drew the whole thing. “He’s an incredible illustrator with a real feeling for what works for kids,” Christiane explains. “We sent him the text, asked him to be creative, and got back this wonderful, imaginative invention that will really appeal to children. Even the map scale is kid-appropriate,” she laughs. “You know how you’re on a journey, and the children keep saying ‘are we nearly there yet?’! Well, our scale is measured in time, not distance… so now the kids can work out for themselves how long the journey will take!“With ‘Cyprus for Kids’ we’ve really tried to be of service to children,” she concludes. “We all remember what it was like to be a child on holiday in a foreign country, many of us have children and grandchildren ourselves. So we’ve accessed that, along with our local knowledge and a great deal of research, to create something that will make any trip to and round Cyprus as interesting and exciting as possible!” Cyprus For KidsIn English, German or Russian, is available from the Mouflon Bookshop in Nicosia, as well as at many kiosks round the island, and on Amazon UK at the price of €4.95You May LikeAmiraspantry.comGARLIC DIP (TOOMEYAH), so delictable specially with grilled meat/chickenAmiraspantry.comUndoFlipopular30 Gorgeous Stars Of The 70s Then And NowFlipopularUndoJobs in USA | Search AdsFinding a Job in The USA From India Might be Easier Than You ThinkJobs in USA | Search AdsUndo Britain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoProperty owners price themselves out of the marketUndoFilm review: Child’s Play ***Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
