Fridays on the Fly: How to Tie a Girdle Bug

first_imgThe “girdle bug” is one of those classic patterns you should never hit the river without. This tried and true fish catcher, sometimes reffered to as a “Pat’s Rubber Leg”, imitates a stonefly and will often net fish when it seems like nothing else can. It also happens to be one of the easiest flies to tie yourself, and a great one for fly tying newbs looking to cut their teeth in the world of  tying.Get a feel for how it’s done by watching this short video, then review the steps we’ve broken out below. Happy tying!1. Attach the lead wire to the middle of the hook shank.2. Line the hook shank with thread.3. Attach your first piece of rubber to the end of the hook shank. This will serve to imitate the bottom legs.4. Attach your chinelle to the bottom of the hook shank. Later on, after attaching legs to the mid section of the fly, you’ll wrap the chinelle back up toward the eye of the hook.4. Attach 2-3 rubber legs to the flies mid section then one near the base of the eye.5. Slowly wrap your chinelle back up the flie’s mid section, weaving in and out of the established rubber legs, until you arrive at the hook’s eye.6. If you’re new to fly tying, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the “whip fishish” technique. This will allow you to knot the thread securely around the base of the eye, thereby completing your girdle bug.A finished girdle bug.last_img read more

Brookdale Community College Welcomes Its First Fulbright Scholar

first_img“We’re excited about having Mariana be a part of the language department because of the opportunities it affords her as a scholar and us as educators,” said William Burns, dean of the college’s Arts and Communications Division.Grassi earned a bachelor’s in education and literature, with a focus on English and Portuguese. She has taught languages in Brazil to children, teens and adults. She also has experience teaching disadvantaged students.In addition to offering academic support, she is teaching weekly lessons about Brazilian culture and is planning to start a Portuguese Club on the Lincroft campus. In order to learn about American culture, she is enrolled in two Brookdale classes, a French class and a conversional English class for non-native speakers.“She is living and experiencing our culture and blending it with her own,” Burns said.The FLTA Program is sponsored by the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE).Host institutions are selected through a competitive application process, said Janice Thomas, director of the Brookdale Community College International Center. “They must demonstrate a commitment to international educational exchange and willingness to mentor and support a young FLTA throughout the scholar’s stay in the United States,” she said.Hosting a Brazilian FLTA is in keeping with Brookdale’s plan to nurture educational partnerships and is an outgrowth of Brookdale’s Brazil initiative begun in the fall 2011, Thomas said.In July, Brookdale signed a protocol of cooperation with Cameos Instituto da Cooperacao e da Lingua that opened the door for exchanges and partnerships with higher educational institutions in Portugal. Under the agreement, Camoes committed to helping Brookdale develop its Portuguese curriculum and Brookdale committed to promoting Portuguese language and culture though classes and programs related to Lusophone cultures.Additional information about Brookdale Community College international education programs and Brookdale initiatives in Brazil is available by contacting the International Education Center, 732-224-2799 or [email protected] LINCROFT – Brookdale Community College is hosting its first Fulbright scholar, Mariana Grassi of Pelotas, Brazil, during the 2013-2014 academic year as part of the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA).Grassi, a recent graduate of the Federal University of Pelotas, is providing tutoring and in-class support for students enrolled in Brookdale’s new elementary Portuguese class.Brookdale Community College President Dr. Maureen Murphy, left, welcomes the college’s first Fulbright scholar, Mariana Grassi, right, of Brazil, as Raquel Rosa, adjunct instructor of Portuguese, looks on.last_img read more

DONALD VALPREDO CALIFORNIA CUP SPRINT QUOTES

first_imgIGGY PUGLISI, SPIRIT RULES, WINNER: “The break helped us out a ton . . . He was in (the gate) a really short period of time and he really caught a flyer from there. I couldn’t give that up. There were too many fast horses in there, so when I could scoot my way over to San Onofre, I figured I’d at least have a shot at it.Through the stretch: “I could feel that inside horse (San Onofre) really starting to battle back . . . but my horse ran really good. He’s been lights out, a really hard-knocking horse.”MIKE SMITH, SAN ONOFRE, SECOND: “Just got out-run today. I stumbled a little leaving (the gate), which cost me a clear lead, but if I’d have been running, I don’t think it would have bothered him. The horse hasn’t run in a year. The horse that beat me is a good old horse that’s been running all year and is fit. It’s a whole lot different in the morning, especially when they take it to you early. I was really happy with the way he ran, and I think he’ll really move forward off it.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: The winning owners are Barbara Accardy, Jeanmarc Murphy and Craig Siedler of San Diego. JOCKEY QUOTEScenter_img PAUL AGUIRRE, SPIRIT RULES, WINNER: “He’s a big horse and whenever he draws outside and he gets near the lead, he’s going to be tough. They may run him down but it’s not going to be because he quits. He’ll give every ounce he has right to the wire.“This Cal-bred program is fantastic. We don’t have a lot of things to hang our hats on these days in horse racing, but the Cal-bred program is really something to be proud of. It’s made this horse have a nice career.”KAREN HEADLEY, SAN ONOFRE, SECOND: “I knew I was going in there a little short.

Men’s Soccer Rallies Past Green Bay, 2-1

first_img DES MOINES, Iowa – Senior James Wypych (Wellington, New Zealand) scored a late goal for the Drake University men’s soccer team as the Bulldogs rallied past Green Bay, 2-1, Tuesday, Sept. 13 evening in its home opener at the Cownie Soccer Complex. This match was later forfeited by Drake after it was determined they used an ineligible player. The Bulldogs held off a late charge from the Phoenix to win their third straight match. Redshirt senior goalie Darrin MacLeod (Waterloo, Ontario) finished two saves. Wypych had a game-high seven shots and played 74 minutes. PDF Box Score “We’re looking forward to the Loyola game,” Smith said. “We’re going in off the back of three wins. We’re in good spirits but Loyola will be tough test. They’re in good form this year and we’re looking forward to the challenge and look to get another result at home.” Full Schedule Roster Preview Live Stats Drake, who more than doubled Green Bay on shots with 15 to six in the game, turned to a familiar face for the equalizer midway through the second half. Loyola 9/17/2016 – 7 PM Junior Steven Enna (Overland Park, Kan.), who Monday was named Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week for his performances last week in wins over Milwaukee and UMKC, in the 53rd minute (53:53) headed a ball in the right corner of the net off a deep pass into the box from freshman Antonio Sanchez (Coralville, Iowa). Enna has three goals in the last three matches. Sanchez has two assists in his first season.center_img The two teams traded shots after Enna’s goal, but it was the Bulldogs who broke through.

Andre Baires scored off a free kick from 35 yards to put the Phoenix up 1-0, a lead they took to halftime. HTML Box Score “It was a difficult and different challenge for us as Green Bay came to set in deep,” said head coach Gareth Smith. “We had to carry the game to them and break them down. That’s not easy when you have 10 men behind the ball committed and organized. Our performance and work ethic was good. We could have improved our ball circulation, but it was a real character test to be able to come from down 1-0 to win 2-1 against a very well organized and defensively minded team.” Next Game: Story Links Drake opens MVC play, Sept. 17, when Loyola visits Cownie.

Delhi University’s first cut-off hits ‘insane’ 100%

first_imgThe cut- off marks for admission to Delhi University’s prestigious colleges have always been high. But this year, they have touched the height of absurdity.Consider this. Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) has pegged its first cut-off for its hugely popular B.Com (Honours) course at a staggering 100%, for students who haven’t studied any of the commerce subjects – Mathematics, Accounts, Economics and Business Studies – in Class XII! Incredibly, SRCC Principal P. C. Jain does not see anything absurd in insisting that students from the non- commerce stream in Class XII score perfect marks in all their subjects.”We get the best students from across the country and getting 100% in the aggregate of your best performance in four subjects is no longer impossible in Board examinations,” said Jain on Tuesday.Jain clearly hasn’t been tracking the results in various states. In neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, the topper Akash Yadav secured 92.3%. In Karnataka, of the over five lakh students who appeared for the 12th standard exam, fewer than one hundred scored in excess of 95%. In West Bengal, the topper in this year’s West Bengal Secondary Certificate examination scored 95%.The tale is similar across the country, with even various state-level toppers failing to score the minimum entry marks for admission to a top Delhi University college. This has virtually slammed the door in the face of applicants from other states.But SRCC is not the only one with stratospheric cut-offs. Colleges such as Ramjas, Hindu and, surprisingly, even Keshav Mahavidyalya are not too far behind. For B.Com (H), Hindu College expects applicants to have scored between 95.5% and 99%. At Keshav Mahavidyalya, the cut-off ranges from 94 to 99%.advertisementMost colleges have substantially increased the cut-offs to try and stem the rising tide of applicants. Among science subjects, the increase in the first cut-off marks, as against last year, is as much as 10% in North Campus colleges.Lokesh Bhandari, a student of Ahlcon Public School in Mayur Vihar, was happy with his aggregate of 91.25% – till the cut- offs were announced. “I am interested in economics and mathematics, but I think I’ll have to wait till the third or the fourth list to see if I can get through any of the North Campus colleges,” he said.The absurdity of the increase registered in the qualifying marks of the first list has also been acknowledged by the university at the time of announcement, albeit tacitly.The university press release sent to all newspapers states: “Colleges have exercised abundant caution in declaring the first cut- off list. Aspirants for admission are advised not to get discouraged. Most colleges are expected to announce four more lists with lower cut- offs.” The “abundant caution” exercised is due to the new admission process adopted by the university. DU, from this year, has discontinued the use of pre-admission or application forms.As per university rule, once the cut-off is declared, colleges have to compulsorily admit all students who come to them with marks equal to or above the cut-off within three days of announcing the cut-offs. So, if the qualifying mark is kept too low, the institution could end up admitting more students than the sanctioned capacity.In absence of any application data, colleges have played safe by pitching higher cut-off marks for the general category.The degree of precaution taken is so extreme that colleges do not mind if they don’t admit even a single student in the first list. How else could one explain Kirori Mal College pitching its first cut-off for B. Com (H) at 97%,higher than even SRCC, which is the most sought after college for commerce?”We are in no hurry to admit students. Instead of being the first ones to close admission in the first list, we have decided to proceed very carefully this time,” said VK Srivastav, principal, Hindu College.Even that may not help students from other states. Malini Bhagat, principal of Kolkata’s Mahadevi Birla school, said the total number of students scoring above 90% in subjects in the state higher secondary exam has gone down significantly this time. “It naturally becomes difficult for students coming from the state boards to qualify,” Bhagat said.Apart from blaming the new admission procedure, college principals have also pleaded helplessness in the light of the unprecedented number of students who have scored above 90% in the CBSE exam this year.The category of students scoring above 95% across the country in the CBSE exam witnessed an unprecedented spike as its number jumped from 1,202 in 2010 to 2,097 this year. In the Delhi region alone, this number trebled from 288 last year to 818 students this time.advertisementAccording to Krishna Kumar, former head of NCERT, the marks inflation has been going on for quite some time. “The National Curriculum Framework made by the NCERT in 2005 had suggested various reforms to contain this trend of inflating results. Board results are no longer indicators of a student’s real potential,” said Kumar.”The real problem is the gap between demand and supply. There is a need to create more quality institutions of higher learning,” said Ashok Ganguly, former head of CBSE.Admission guideIf you are eligible in the first cut-off list for a college of your choice, then take admission and do not wait for the second list.If you don’t, you lose your right to admission the next time.If you want to change your college after the second list, then go to the previous college to cancel your admission only after you have an admission slip from the second college or a verbal assurance of admission from them.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
