[media-credit name=”Andy Fate” align=”alignright” width=”336″][/media-credit]No motor will run without a spark plug, and on Wednesday night, it was Ben Brust’s turn to spark the Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s motor.Brust, with a perfect first half from the field and a game-high 18 points, lifted No. 4 Wisconsin (11-0) to a convincing 78-53 win over UW-Milwaukee (9-3) at home.The Badgers got off to a notoriously slow start, committing three turnovers and missing two shots before it made its first field goal with almost four minutes gone in the first half.“Our first four minutes tonight were something that we shouldn’t have had,” sophomore forward Sam Dekker said. “We came out flat, didn’t take the good shots and had a couple of turnovers.”The Badgers were able to survive their early-game slump thanks to a strong defense that held the Panthers to just two field goals in the first 10 minutes of the opening half.After Brust jump-started the Badgers with three buckets from downtown in five minutes, Wisconsin began to get on a roll making 10-straight shots from the field — not missing a shot for nearly nine minutes.“It was just a product of having some good offense – driving, kicking, finding guys,” Brust said.Wisconsin’s hot end to the first half was highlighted by a Traevon Jackson dunk over Milwaukee’s 6-foot-7 forward Malcolm Moore.“He’s always been telling us since the summer that he’s going to get some dunks,” Dekker said. “It’s his birthday too so he’s got a little extra pep in his step. That was a sweet finish.”On the back of Brust’s 16 first-half points and a team shooting percentage of 64 percent, the Badgers went to the locker room with a comfortable 45-25 lead.“You can’t spot the No. 4 ranked team in the country 20 points and in the second half think you’re going to have a chance to really cut into a team like Wisconsin,” UW-Milwaukee head coach Rob Jeter said.The Panthers made an early second-half push making their first six of seven shots from the floor while Milwaukee’s Kyle Kelm did his best to keep the deficit within reach putting up eight points in the final half and a team-high 17 for the game.Brust and Wisconsin’s offense couldn’t keep up with its first-half pace — going 1-13 (7.7 percent) from beyond the arch — while the senior guard was held to just two points in the final 20 minutes.Wisconsin was able to keep distance with Milwaukee by finding points in the paint, scoring 22 of its 38 points in the lane in the second half.“I thought we worked extremely hard in the post,” head coach Bo Ryan said. “We knew we were in for a battle inside.”The Badgers’ big post presence, tough defense and opportunistic offense scored 28 points off turnovers to seal Wisconsin’s 11th win of the season.“I thought defensively we did a good job of getting our hands on some passes and creating some turnovers,” Ryan said. “I thought our guys did a pretty good job of getting deflections and turning those into points, and those are huge.”With Wednesday’s win over Milwaukee, Wisconsin swept the in-state series for the first time since 2010 and matched its best start (11-0) in program history.“Yay for the team,” Ryan said of his team’s 11 straight wins. “Our guys have played good teams and they get credit. You get credit for what you’ve done to this point.“It’s like in class, you do your assignments and then you get credit for them. If you do them well you get stars on your paper or a pat on the back. If you stop doing them well everything goes the other way. So far up to this point they’ve found a way to get a lot of things done.”Though Wisconsin is ranked in the top five and owns a program-best record, Brust knows there is still a log of growing that needs to be done before his team is ready for conference play.“There’s no denying we’ve had a good start, being 11-o, but we still know that it’s going to get much, much harder moving forward,” Brust said. “The Big Ten is just something different … You have to remember that it all resets come January. But we’ve go to finish out what we have here.”

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Google#Video Services#web mSpot, a streaming music and movie service, has just announced its partnership with Google TV to deliver more content to the Internet TV platform. The service offers full-length movie rentals, but it also works between devices so you can pick up where you left off when watching a film on your PC, tablet or mobile phone. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… sarah perez You may be familiar with the name mSpot because of its mobile offerings for iPhone and Android, which are separated into two apps: mSpot Music and mSpot Movies. With mSpot Music, you first have to download its installer on your computer and upload your files to the “cloud,” in this case the cloud referring to mSpot’s own servers. Once that process is complete, you can stream your own music from your mobile phone, anywhere you have an Internet connection.However, with mSpot Movies, an entity so different that it even lives at its own domain name where it makes no mention of its sister service, you simply download an app to watch free movie trailers and rental movies that start at $2.99. There is no computer-based installer as you’re not accessing your own digital media collection, but actual movies from Hollywood studios who have partnered with the company.Now on Google TVmSpot has not created a special “app” for Google TV for its Music offering – it says you’ll have to load up the Chrome Web browser and head over to its mobile site at m.mspot.com instead. Here, your music library is available for streaming from your TV. You get the first 2 GB for free (1600 songs) then its $3.99 for 40 more gigs.It sounds like mSpot’s Movies’ integration has been given more consideration, though. You launch the service from its own icon in the “Spotlight” section on Google TV (or via mspotmovies.com). And the interface, says the company, has been optimized for the big screen, even if you’re browsing for movies from 10 feet away (as you probably are). Again, movies are $2.99-$3.99 to rent.Another interesting side note – mSpot says it will begin offering DRM-enabled caching of movies on your devices starting this year. That way, you could stream content even when offline. Despite the near-ubitity of cell coverage, dead spots and low-bandwidth areas are still an issue for many. And streaming movies to your mobile is something many travelers do – often on planes without Wi-Fi, as well as trains, subways, buses, etc. When that offline feature launches, mSpot may begin to get even more pickup than they have now.

VANCOUVER – A British Columbia man who faces deportation over his Facebook posts allegedly promoting terrorist attacks in the name of the Islamic State group says he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder due to false accusations.Othman Hamdan was acquitted of terrorism-related charges by a B.C. Supreme Court judge last September but immigration authorities arrested him and have determined at multiple detention reviews that he poses a danger to the public.On Tuesday, Hamdan told a hearing of the Immigration and Refugee Board that he was living a peaceful life in Fort St. John when he was arrested for allegedly calling for lone wolf attacks through Facebook.“I was found innocent from all of these false accusations but I’m still being incarcerated,” he said, adding he has received about eight months of therapy from a psychologist.He said his arrest following his acquittal made him relive the experience of the prosecution “over and over again,” to the point that it has undone the therapy that allowed him to manage his symptoms.“Please forgive me if I show some of these symptoms, like agitation,” Hamdan said.Hamdan is a Jordanian national who said he moved to the United States to study electrical engineering but faced discrimination after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, prompting him to move to the Vancouver area in July 2002.He told the hearing he had several Facebook accounts, including those using an old family moniker and the first name Adam because it was easier for westerners to pronounce.Hamdan said his posts initially included poetry and were accessible to friends and family but as he began criticizing Islamic clergy for their hypocrisy, along with the Muslim Brotherhood and governments beyond the Middle East, he gained thousands of followers with whom he debated religion and politics.“I went from a nobody to a somebody who had thousands of followers,” he said.He said his posts of political satire and support for people struggling through the Arab Spring that started in Tunisia in 2010 and spread to other Middle Eastern countries invited activists who could also post to his timeline.Eighty-five posts were called into question during the trial but a judge concluded they may have been offensive to some people but did not constitute terrorism.Hamdan has repeatedly cited his acquittal at detention review hearings that have been held every 30 days since his incarceration. The Immigration and Refugee Board said the security allegations it reviews involve a different standard of proof.He told the hearing that posts suggesting Canada had weak infrastructure, including a dam in Revelstoke, B.C., were merely meant to contrast different attitudes to infrastructure compared with the Middle East.The RCMP’s investigation did not capture entire transcripts of many posts including those about the Islamic State group, so much of what he said to a growing group of activists is being taken out of context, Hamdan added.In response to his lawyer, Peter Edelmann, Hamdan said he was not doing any research on any infrastructure in Canada.The Immigration and Refugee Board has said at previous detention hearings that many of Hamdan’s posts would likely encourage violence against Canadians.— Follow @CamilleBains1 on Twitter
Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton has reasons to believe Liverpool are very close to winning the Premier League title.It appears that every season Liverpool continue to make an attempt to grab the title and the most recent being under Jurgen Klopp who have spent over £175m this summer on four top signings.The new signings are Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker. Following Klopp’s new signings, Barton is concerned about his rivals’ championship chances.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“When we look across Stanley Park, no matter what any of us say, and see the big German [Klopp], the style they’re playing, and the way they have invested again – it’s nervous times for Evertonians,” Barton told talkSPORT as quoted in Sports Mole.“I honestly think they could get really close to their first title in 20-odd years. It will be really close.”Liverpool last won the English top-flight championship in 1990
