DeGrom, Mets Blank Rockies, 2-0

No Comments on DeGrom, Mets Blank Rockies, 2-0

first_imgNEW YORK  — Terry Collins was watching another masterful pitching performance by shaggy-haired rookie Jacob deGrom when David Wright returned to the New York dugout with the news that his season was over because of a shoulder injury.The Mets manager had little time to think about the ramifications of losing his star third baseman, not with his team suddenly on the fringe of the National League playoff race.DeGrom pitched three-hit ball for eight dominant innings, and New York held on to beat the Colorado Rockies 2-0 on Sept. 9 for its sixth win in seven games.“At the moment I was trying to win a baseball game,” Collins said. “There’s a lot of discussions that are going to have to take place here to decide where we need to head.”Jeurys Familia got Wilin Rosario to ground out with the bases loaded in the ninth for his fifth save, helping the Mets move five games under .500 (70-75). They are just 5 1-2 games behind Pittsburgh for the second NL wild card with three teams in front of them.“Just a really good team win right there,” said All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy, who went 1-for-3 in his return from the disabled list. “A little bit of a sour taste in your mouth with what’s going on with David.”Wright has been playing with a sore shoulder since mid-June. The pain became more severe Monday night and he had an MRI Sept. 9, missing the game. The seven-time All-Star will be shut down for the rest of the season and begin a six-week rehabilitation program after a period of rest.“It’s disappointing,” Wright said. “But I think for me personally, making sure I end this year as healthy as can be and then do what I can, starting with this rehab program, to ensure that I will be as close to 100 percent for spring training is the goal.”Juan Lagares had an RBI single, and Curtis Granderson added an RBI double off Christian Bergman (2-3) one night after he hit a tying triple in the ninth inning of the series-opening win.In his 20th career start, deGrom (8-6) didn’t allow a baserunner after Nolan Arenado’s one-out double in the fourth — retiring his final 14 batters. He struck out nine and walked none.“I felt like I was getting stronger as the game went on,” deGrom said. “That’s a great feeling because it’s my first time I’m pitching this late into a year.”Over his last 10 starts, deGrom is 7-1 with a 1.60 ERA. He hasn’t allowed an earned run in 22 straight innings.Matt den Dekker’s double with one out in the fifth gave the Mets their first runner in scoring position against Bergman, and they came through. After deGrom grounded out, Lagares had an RBI single.Den Dekker was later hit by a pitch in the hand. X-Rays were negative.Bergman yielded six hits and two runs in six innings in his seventh major league start. He didn’t walk a batter for his second consecutive outing.“Bergy did another nice job,” Rockies Manager Walt Weiss said. “He’s been one of those guys who’ve come up and been a bright spot for us — he competes pretty well.”(HOWIE RUMBERG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! Oklahoma State put some points up and a beating on South Alabama in Mobile last Friday night. There were several reel-worthy highlights but we’ve narrowed down our four favorite and are going to give you a chance to vote for the best.The top play each week — as decided by you — will make it to a pre-bowl playoff where you will then be able to help decide the best play of the year.Let’s get into it. Be sure to vote at the tweet linked below.Rudolph-to-Washington for 66 and 6AdChoices广告This might be the most routine 66-yard touchdown ever, which is what makes it so impressive. These two have connected for a ton of long plays over their four seasons together and took up where they left off from Week 1 with a 77-yard score. This 66-yard TD makes 13 receiving plays of 50 yards or more during Washington’s time at OSU and he currently leads all FBS receivers with a career average of 19.8 yards per reception.Darrion Daniels’ tip and Justin Phillips takes advantageDarrion Daniels needs to have a breakout year for Oklahoma State in 2017 and he showed off some of the skills and physicality that make that a possibility in this play. He beats starting left guard Harrison Louden, the 6-3, 295-pound sophomore, and has the wherewithal to rush the QB and get a hand up which makes this score possible. Kudos to Trey Carter for making the effort. More kudos to Justin Phillips for taking advantage but the helmet sticker goes to Daniels on this one.DQ BlizzardDeQuinton Osborne had a nice game in Mobile. There was this sack and tackle for loss but later had the play where he planted the petunia as well. If Oklahoma State is going to reach its goals, I think DQ will big a big reason why.J.D. King Breaks LooseThere weren’t a ton of rushing highlights in this game, especially early. But freshman J.D. King did take advantage of nice running lane for this game-leading 31-yard rush. Nothing super pretty or complicated. Just take the shortest path from A to B, a straight diagonal line. Bonus points to Chris Lacy for doing Chris Lacy things with that block on the perimeter.Hit Play ▶️ Vote for the top #okstate play from last Friday. https://t.co/sVGcLGOHPM— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 12, 2017last_img read more

Montreal construction boom spawned by strong economy and political stability

No Comments on Montreal construction boom spawned by strong economy and political stability

MONTREAL — Cranes crowd the Montreal skyline these days as a strong economy and political stability are fuelling a construction frenzy throughout the downtown core and beyond.Although tame by Toronto and Vancouver standards, developers in Canada’s second-largest city are investing billions of dollars in new condominium and office complexes, along with retrofitting older buildings.“Since 1976, this is one of the greatest times,” Mayor Denis Coderre said, referring to the year when the election of the separatist Parti Quebecois prompted an exodus of residents and businesses.“There is right now 150 cranes representing $25 billion of investment in Montreal,” he said at the official launch of the second phase of the YUL twin tower and townhouse project that is sponsored by Chinese investors.Project developer Kheng Ly of Brivia Group Real Estate, who has partnered with China’s Tianco Group, said relatively low condo prices and the lack of a foreign buyers tax make Montreal an attractive place to invest.Ly, who arrived in Canada 29 years ago, said the downtown landscape has changed significantly in the past five years. The recent addition of direct flights between China and Montreal have attracted Asian investors who comprise 35 to 40 per cent of condo owners at the project’s first phase, he said.Further evidence of the city’s construction boom can be seen along a short stretch to the Bell Centre where towers surrounding the home of the Habs are a symbol of the change that has been sweeping over the city.A 55-storey glass building that will carry the famed Montreal Canadiens red and white logo has been launched after two previous towers featuring special access to the hockey complex were quickly sold out.The project is part of a large development of residential and office buildings planned by Cadillac Fairview and its partner Canderel for Quad Windsor, an area near the historic rail station.The association with one of sports’ most storied franchises is modelled after Toronto’s Maple Leaf Square and similar approaches in Los Angeles, Dallas and Edmonton.Montreal trails Toronto and Vancouver in condominium developments partly because of the city’s historic preference for rentals.“So there’s a bit of catch up,” said Brian Salpeter, Cadillac Fairview senior vice-president of development, Eastern Canada.Low interest rates, higher disposable income and municipal incentives have made home ownership more affordable and fuelled purchases, said Raphael Fischler, a professor at the McGill University School of Urban Planning.Since many of the large residential projects are built on empty lots or in old industrial locations, there is little immediate impact on affordable housing. However, he said it has caused an upward pressure on rents.Daniel Peritz of Canderel said outsiders are finally seeing the city’s potential.“It’s very nice because for so many years we didn’t have that situation. We have it now and the rest of the country is recognizing it,” he said.Royal LePage realtor Amy Assaad said that the last couple of years have been particularly strong.Demand is hottest for condos priced between $300,000 and $400,000 along with high-end units, she said.Assaad said she’s seeing more foreign buyers from Europe, China and the Middle East. In addition to good pricing, they are attracted to the city’s great university system, strong transit network and a sense of security.“Everything is on our side right now,” she said in an interview.However, Prof. Fischler said there is a concern that too many condos are being built, increasing the inventory of unsold units.“People entering the market to build now have to be careful,” he said.In addition to downtown, other thriving areas are Griffintown in the city’s old industrial area near the Lachine Canal and pockets of neighbourhoods that are undergoing gentrification.For developers like Quebec pension fund manager Ivanhoe Cambridge’s real estate subsidiary, the current environment is the strongest it has seen in a quarter century.Office vacancy rates have been declining as spaces are filled at the highest level in five years and net rental prices are on an upswing, said Bernard Poliquin, senior vice-president office in Quebec.Ivanhoe is officially opening its 27-floor downtown office tower next month, which will house Manulife and Ernst & Young.“Others like me who have been in the market for 20 to 30 years are saying the same thing: We haven’t lived this in our careers.” read more

Major source of workforce training receives three more years of funding

No Comments on Major source of workforce training receives three more years of funding

first_imgGovernor Bill Walker signs HB 141 at Bethel’s Yuut Elitnaurviat surrounded by high school students from the Kuskokwim Learning Academy on August 29, 2017. (Dean Swope / KYUK)Alaskans across the state will continue developing technical skills, like welding and dental therapy, with the signing of House Bill 141. On Tuesday in Bethel, local high school students surrounded Governor Bill Walker as he penned the legislation into law at the YK Delta’s workforce development center, Yuut Elitnaurviat.Governor Walker handed out about a dozen of the blue pens used to sign the bill to students from the Kuskokwim Learning Academy. The high school gave him a present in return.A purple and gold KLA T-shirt and water bottle.Many of these students are already benefiting from this legislation and entering technical programs that meet the job needs of local organizations.The bill reauthorizes the Technical Vocational Education Program for another three years, putting nearly $12 million towards technical job training. Over $1 million of that will go to Yuut Elitnaurviat in Bethel. Dennis Dishion is Yuut’s Executive Director.“We do dental health aide training, nursing programs, commercial drivers license training,” Dishion said. “Welding training, construction, carpentry, electrical, plumbing.”Yuut is receiving about 10 percent less funding than in past years. To cover the difference, the center is cutting costs. It has put fuel services out for bid and has been merging barge orders. Dishion said there will be no decrease in classes available or staff.“We’re trying to have no effect in the end-delivery service,” Dishion said.In fact, the center has twice as many students, about 350, signed up for technical training than ever before. Much of that is made possible by partner agencies like the Lower Kuskokwim School District and the Association of Village Council Presidents, who recruit workers and sponsor training to fill their job needs, like mechanics.What Yuut Elitnaurviat provides to the YK Delta, the Norton Sound region receives from the Northwestern Alaska Career and Technical Center.“Also known as NACTEC, in Nome,” Director Doug Walrath said.One of the most immediate impacts Walrath has seen from the program is rising high school graduation rates. Less than a decade ago, that rate was about 30 percent.“As more and more students have gotten exposed to it, our graduation rates climbed in the 40, 50, 60, 70, as high as 84 percent,” Walrath said.The University of Alaska system receives most of the bill’s funding. Mary Pete directs Bethel’s Kuskokwim University Campus. Part of the money will train CNAs, certified nurse assistants, for the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation.“We can’t seem to produce enough CNAs for them,” Pete said. “They get hired, and some leave the region.”To work at other health centers or move on to nurse training programs.Representative Zach Fansler of Bethel sponsored the bill. It aligns with the Innovation Caucus that he co-chairs and helped found this session.To end the signing, Fansler, along with the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and multiple Commissioners – after much prodding from teachers – joined the high school students in a Yup’ik moose hunting dance.It took four rounds, but they finally shot the moose, just as the season is beginning.last_img read more

What Are Your Customers Thinking

No Comments on What Are Your Customers Thinking

first_img Technology researchers are working on something big: a device that combines a digital screen and camera to analyze your physical characteristics and play back personalized advertisements. It isn’t ready for market yet; but, when it finally is, it could revolutionize the way businesses reach out to their consumers.Here’s how it would work. When shoppers pause in front of a monitor, a computer reads their sex, age, race and expression to gauge interest levels, and then decides the best commercial to play. If the person turns or looks away, the device attempts to draw attention back to the screen–perhaps the music will suddenly crescendo–and the customer will see a different product the computer thinks may be of interest based on the information gleaned earlier.Spearheading the project, called “Targeted Advertising Based on Audience Natural Response,” or TABANAR (thankfully) for short, is NICTA, an information and communication technology center established by the Australian government. According to Glenn Downey, NICTA’s commercialization manager, progress depends on how quickly researchers can develop sophisticated ways to identify emotional cues from facial expressions. She says a breakthrough would represent a transition from dynamic to responsive technologies. “Next generation technology will react to interest levels and shift content accordingly.”What’s Available Now?TABANAR is a work-in-progress, but there are existing technologies that businesses use to get a read on what customers are thinking.For example, mining video for customer data is gaining popularity. Rajeev Sharma, founder of Pennsylvania-based VideoMining Corporation, created the company in 2000 to meet demand for retail intelligence revealed through image recognition software. In VideoMining’s client stores, feeds from security cameras are sent to a main computer, which extrapolates information on everything from what products people are looking at to how long they stand in front of a particular display.The business applications are clear. “The store design and merchandising would be fairly critical for all business owners, and there’s a growing interest in video mining because everyone is trying to compete, small or big, and trying to differentiate their stores,” Sharma says. With this kind of feedback, store owners can assess the effectiveness of a display and alter the design of the store to maximize sales.In one grocery store, Sharma recalls, they discovered there were too many product types in the juice section. “Ten percent of shoppers spent 90 seconds in front of the display before leaving without buying anything. We pinpointed that people must be overwhelmed by products. They responded by reducing the number and organizing it better. It worked.”Right now, VideoMining’s clients are mainly large chains and consumer brand companies, but, Sharma says, any business with a storefront can benefit from a better understanding of consumer shopping behavior. And services are more affordable than you might think, given that the biggest cost is usually outfitting the hardware.The company is also beginning to offer clients real-time measurements on an analytics website. “Just like an online business gets immediate feedback on the number of hits, we can do the same with different displays in a bricks-and-mortar store,” Sharma says. “This way, retailers can change displays quickly and experiment to find out what works best for their individual needs.”Merchandising firm YCD Multimedia is rolling out a digital media platform featuring video screens that play advertisements related to what people put in their shopping carts at points of sale. For instance, at the cash register at Aroma Espresso Bar (one of YCD’s clients), a woman buying a coffee might see a commercial for a scone on the monitor.CEO Barry Salzman believes the retail environment of the future will integrate the ability to measure which promotions are working and which ones aren’t with the ability to act upon this information immediately. YCD’s platform allows retailers to cheaply measure, in real time, the performance of marketing campaigns and concept testing. This, he says, unlocks a realm of possibilities for retailers to try things depending on time of day and location. “Our clients can log onto our analytics website and see that promotion X got put up in a particular aisle at noon, and at 12:15, what’s happening at the cash register.”Salzman adds that the initial capital investment that scares people away saves them money–and increases sales–in the end. “Once you get the system in place, you push a button and get everything at a minimal cost,” he says. “It will replace the waste of shipping and having to change posters and other static materials that may be outdated by the time you get relevant sales data.”A Look InsideWhile Sharma and Salzman are decoding consumer behavior by observation, neuromarketing expert Martin Lindstrom is doing so by reading shoppers’ minds–literally.In his book Buyology, Lindstrom describes the findings of a three-year, $7 million study that examined subconscious shopping behavior using brain-mapping techniques. “We know that 85 percent of every purchasing decision . . . is made in the unconscious part of the brain,” he says. “Now we can access this using fMRI and EEG scans [of the brain].” One aspect of his research measured how different regions in the brain reacted (or didn’t) to certain advertising-related stimuli, including sound, smells and visuals.Turns out, the sense of sound makes the biggest emotional impact, followed by smell and then sight. “If you expose people to sound, all five sensory regions are activated, which means that sound has much more influence on our mood, on our choice of brands and our emotional engagement than visuals.”These findings have several practical applications. First, Lindstrom says, companies should leverage the internet’s sound capabilities. Less than one percent of business home pages use sound. He suggests that even something simple–like a short tune when a credit card is processing, or an introductory theme at log-on–works to get people into a certain mindset when thinking about a brand.It’s also important to make sure advertisements are placed in the right context. “If you’re watching or listening to a dramatic, fast-paced program, a commercial break featuring Dove beauty soap will be forgotten,” Lindstrom says. “If the brain can’t figure out how it fits with the storyline, it will literally delete it.” So even if you’re using a great advertising medium, an ad appearing at the wrong moment negates all the benefits.Another interesting discovery was that people subconsciously purchase more expensive brands when others are around. “If they’re totally alone, people are more likely to buy generics,” Lindstrom says, adding that designing a more open space with lower aisles can also deter theft.Now we know that store design can influence what people buy, he says. And as brain-scanning technologies become increasingly portable, with studies done in real shopping environments, the results will yield further insights.Reading AheadGiven the trajectory, Guy Hagen, president of technology consulting firm Innovation Insight, reflects that as these technologies are refined, the pool from which to extract market intelligence will grow enormously. “The demographic data we can get right now is important, but if we could access data on expressions and attitudes, that takes things to the next level,” he says, which could open up all consumer-generated video and photographic footage to piece together a larger picture. “We would have richer information, and more of it.”And although privacy issues will certainly arise, Hagen thinks that is also part of the natural process. “Research has shown that in general, people will put up with privacy invasions if they get enough benefits from it.”One thing, however, is clear: With next-generation advertising technology, you may not be able to read your customers’ minds, but you can get pretty close.

The receipt of this material also marks the beginning of MIT’s validation efforts in order to qualify Sr-82 product material as active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).Over the next six months MIT will continue to obtain Sr-82 target solutions from foreign irradiators at Positron’s Strontium processing facility in Lubbock, Texas. MIT will conduct the critical processing procedures for final purification into API grade Sr-82. Validation of the API grade Sr-82 product material is key to the Positron/MIT 2012 Drug Master File submission to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”With the receipt of Sr-82 from ARRONAX, Positron and MIT have achieved an incredible milestone,” states MIT president, Jason Kitten. “Up until this point in time, the Department of Energy was the only organization in the United States capable of processing Sr-82 material. By executing our plans, MIT is well positioned to meet the Drug Master File qualifications, which will further advance and accelerate Positron’s Sr-82 mission. Positron continues its progress and is on schedule to meet 2012 Sr-82 supply objectives.

State guarantees flight safety despite Turkish actions

No Comments on State guarantees flight safety despite Turkish actions

first_imgThe government has a comprehensive strategy to address and eliminate risks to flight safety in the Nicosia flight information region (FIR), stemming from Turkey’s continuous illegal actions, government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Friday.Speaking on the sidelines of a flight safety seminar organised by the Mediterranean Flight Safety Foundation and the European Association of Aviation Training Organsiations, the spokesman said measures have been put in place in response to developments in the region.Prodromou stressed that so far air traffic in the region of Cyprus has not been disrupted and expressed hope that this would continue to be so. The spokesman said that what was happening in the region of Cyprus was certainly a cause for concern.“We are talking about war operations and possible military operations. But of course, there is monitoring and the necessary precautionary measures for the safe continuation of flights are in place,” he noted.In a speech he delivered during the seminar on behalf of President Nicos Anastasiades, he referred to the dangers in air safety, resulting from Turkey’s refusal to cooperate with Cyprus’ air traffic control authorities, contrary to the relevant provisions of the ICAO Convention.“We shall continue to make every effort in that respect and we expect the international community and all those involved in aviation to do likewise in a practical and effective manner. Nobody is entitled to simply allow the present situation to continue. The fact that no accidents have happened so far should not lead to complacency,” he added.Prodromou also highlighted the dangers arising from the operation of the illegal airport and the air traffic control centre in Cyprus’ northern Turkish occupied areas.The Spokesman referred to the centre’s interference with flights inside the Nicosia FIR and to Turkish air force flights without any coordination with the aviation authorities of the Republic.“Regrettably, these illegal actions of Turkey create serious dangers to the safety of millions of passengers (the majority of them European), who travel on flights using the Nicosia FIR.” You May LikeHealth & Human ResearchPut Garlic Under Your Pillow and See What Will HappenHealth & Human ResearchUndoEchobeatWhy Are These New Earphones Selling Out So Fast In California?EchobeatUndoHealthZapHe Donated His 80-Year-Old Monkey Toy To A Museum And Met His Long-Lost CousinHealthZapUndo Urgent work planned on collapsed section of Nicosia wallsUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoHouse rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
