EXCITEMENT BUILDING FOR AUSTRALIAN JUNIORS

first_imgThis weekend they are all playing for different clubs, competing in different divisions and are focused on winning a State Cup title. In January they will all be wearing the green and gold for Australia and hoping to take home the title of Youth World Champions. Australia’s 20 and 18 Years sides will be on the Sunshine Coast next January for the Youth World Cup. Many of the NSW players and a few of the Queensland players are at the State Cup this weekend. The Men’s 23s division is one of the strongest of this years tournament. With sides such as Wests, Yass, Central Coast and Kempsey Macley all boasting top class players, including Australian representatives, the competition is only going to get tougher as finals get closer. Chris Lukins, Ben Nercessian and Cameron Nicholls are all playing for Western Suburbs Mens 23’s at the State Cup and are all playing Mens or Mixed 18’s at the Youth World Cup. They agree that State Cup is an important element of their preparation for the Youth World Cup and a great chance for them to work on their fitness. “The training for the Youth World Cup has been pretty intense, both at and away from the camps. It’s good to come away and continue that fitness at a tournament,” said 18’s Mixed player Cameron Nicholls. Teammate Ben Nercessian also values playing at State Cup and believes it will help his World Cup preparation. “Every tournament gives players a new experience that they can learn from, and playing here in the Mens 23’s I’m learning things that will help me at the Youth World Cup,” said Nercessian. Mens 18’s team member, Chris Lukins is another excited about representing his country. “It means heaps to be playing touch for Australia, hopefully we can bring home the title,” said Lukins. Womens 18’s representatives Amanda Skwarko and Ashleigh Dobbins are here this weekend with Ulla Dulla Mixed Open side and while both are enjoying playing Mixed and enjoying the tournament, are also realizing the importance of maintaining their fitness. “We’re having heaps of fun here, but we’ve really got to keep working on our fitness because the Youth World Cup will be tough, hopefully by January we’ll be ready to face the Kiwis,” Skwarko said. “It’s been good that it’s a little warmer today because we really need to get used to playing in the heat,” Dobbins said. “The Sunshine Coast will be even hotter than this, so we better get prepared for it.” Yass Boys 23’s team list also boasts the names of several Australian representatives. Chris Rawlinson, Andrew Baggio and Scott Naughton, with all three agreeing the excitement for the Youth World Cup is building quickly. While most of us are enjoying the mountains of good food to descend on us over Christmas, no doubt our Youth World Cup sides will be worrying about those fitness tests and training camps as they days draw closer to the Youth World Cup. Good luck guys, we’ll be thinking of you. By Rachel Moyle and Lisa Plummerlast_img read more

BC Hydro to negotiate power purchase agreements with Saulteau and West Moberly

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — BC Hydro says that it plans to pursue electricity purchase agreement negotiations with two First Nations in the Peace Region.The West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations are partners with Natural Forces in the Sukunka Wind and Zonnebeke Wind projects near Chetwynd. Each of the wind projects is comprised of four wind turbines that are located east of Highway 29 near the former Natural Springs Golf Resort roughly 15 kilometres south of Chetwynd.BC Hydro said that it plans to pursue power purchase agreement negotiations with three other First Nations power projects in B.C. The five projects were selected because they are part of Impact Benefit Agreements with BC Hydro and have significant First Nations involvement. The Standing Offer program is a non-competitive, streamlined process with set pricing for small, clean energy generation projects. Hydro says that the Micro Standing Offer program requires the project have significant First Nations ownership and active participation. “Moving forward with the development of these energy projects is a step in the right direction in creating opportunities for First Nations in the province, while also contributing to B.C.’s clean energy future,” said Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources Minister Michelle Mungall.“Through the Standing Offer and Micro Standing Offer programs, we’ve seen the development of small-scale renewable energy projects, including solar, wind, and biomass throughout the province. These projects contributed over 300 gigawatt hours of clean energy to BC Hydro’s system in 2016,”said BC Hydro CEO Chris O’Riley. “The five latest projects demonstrate our commitment to creating opportunities for Indigenous groups in B.C.”last_img read more

Social media has little effect on life satisfaction of teens

first_imgSocial media has little effect on the life satisfaction of teenagers, according to a large-scale study conducted in the UK. Researchers from the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) at University of Oxford used an eight-year survey of UK households to study how long teenagers spent using social media on a normal school day and their corresponding life satisfaction ratings. This is the first large-scale and in-depth study testing not only whether adolescents who report more social media use have lower life satisfaction but also whether the reverse is true. The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), used improved data and statistical approaches and found most links between life satisfaction and social media use were trivial. However, there were some bidirectional effects: Lower life satisfaction led to increased social media use and vice versa, researchers said. These bidirectional effects were more consistent for females than for males, but again, these were modest trends, they said. The researchers stress that this represents an important step in understanding the effects of social media. “Given the rapid pace of technological advancement in recent years, the question of how our increasing use of technology to interact with each other affects our wellbeing has become increasingly important,” said Professor Andrew Przybylski, Director of Research at the OII. “With most of the current debate based on lacklustre evidence, this study represents an important step towards mapping the effects of technology on adolescent well-being,” Przybylski said. Previous literature was based almost entirely on correlations with no means to dissociate whether social media use leads to changes in life satisfaction or vice versa. “More than half of the statistical models we tested were not significant, and those that were significant suggested the effects were not as simple as often stated in the media,” said Tobias Dienlin from the University of Hohenheim in Germany. “Most statistically significant models examined teenage girls. However, because these effects were tiny, they weren’t significantly larger in girls compared to boys,” he said.last_img read more

Government to put an end to Evangelization of Moroccans

first_imgCasablanca- Being a melting-point in North Africa, Morocco receives countless exchange-students and alumni from all over the world throughout the year. However, they are not all goodwill ambassadors looking forward to learning about new cultures and traditions as they might claim.According to today’s issue of Akhbar Alyawm newspaper, the Moroccan government will set strict regulations for American Institutions intending to serve in the domain of education and development. Such set of regulations aims at preventing the evangelization of Moroccans.According to the same source, the Moroccan Government Council approved a “draft agreement Project between Morocco and U.S.A.” on Thursday. The project puts strict regulations for American Schools and Institutions in Morocco to prevent the widespread of evangelization. According to Article 220 in the Moroccan penal code, evangelization is a crime and anyone who engages in it may face prison time.In conformity with the article 220 of the Moroccan Penal Code, a proselytizer may face “six months to three years prison and a fine of 100 to 500 Dirhams” for using the “means of seduction in order to convert ” a Muslim “to another religion, either by exploiting his/her weakness or his/her needs, or using for these purposes education, health, asylums and orphanage institutions.”The  draft agreement requires any American institution of education either in preparatory or secondary education to provide a curriculum similar to the one used in U.S.A. and to be part of an N.G.O.Furthermore, the draft agreement requires Moroccan students and students with double citizenship to be taught Arabic, Moroccan Culture and The History and Geography of Morocco by Moroccan teachers who were and will be trained by Moroccan supervisors from the Ministry of Education. In addition, the curriculum must be approved by the Moroccan authorities.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, rewritten or redistributedlast_img read more

Breaking down NFL Championship weekend

New York Jets vs. Indianapolis ColtsThis contest resembles the movie “Saving Private Ryan.” The American soldiers that were ordered to find private Ryan captured a German soldier. The Americans could have easily executed the soldier, but the character played by Tom Hanks told his patrol to let him go.In the conclusion of the movie, that same German soldier who was set free kills one of the American soldiers in that same patrol.When the Colts and Jets originally faced each other in Week 16, Indianapolis had a lead going into the second half and looked as if it would continue its undefeated season. Also, if the Jets lost the game, they would be out of the playoff hunt altogether, their season virtually over.But instead of ending the Jets’ playoff hopes, the Colts pulled their marquee players in the second half to rest for January. The Jets went on to win the contest and they have recently gone on a miraculous run to reach the AFC Championship game against the team that gave them an extra life.After the Colts let the Jets slip right through their fingers, they now will have to face off with a team that is currently brimming with confidence. Some critics believe that Indianapolis has lost its edge after resting their starters, but they won’t take New York lightly.The Colts are the only team left in the playoff that has been in the Super Bowl in recent memory. New York hasn’t won since a quarterback named Joe Namath guaranteed a championship victory in Super Bowl III. Indy is stockpiled with playoff experience and is led by MVP quarterback Peyton Manning and receiving threats Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark. The Jets have an elite running attack, but the Colts proved to the world that they could shut down the run after silencing the Baltimore Ravens’ impressive running game.Jets head coach Rex Ryan said in the first five minutes of his inaugural press conference that his team would win the Super Bowl. Sports fans around the country laughed at the cocky coach, but New York is only one win away from reaching their destination.The Jets defense was able to slow down the Chargers’ high-octane offense with a bend-but-don’t-break approach last weekend. Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez is a perfect complement to his defense as he is playing mistake free football. Rookie running back Shonn Green and veteran Thomas Jones have been the key to the Jets’ playoff success, leading the league in rushing .The Colts are playing in their cozy confines in Indianapolis and have plenty of incentives to seek revenge against the Jets, but the Jets are clicking at just the right time and will fulfill Rex Ryan’s prediction.Pick: New York Jets Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans SaintsSo far, Brett Favre has dismissed some of his critics while leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship game. At the age of 40, Favre has had arguably his most successful season. It seems that he has finally learned that his gunslinging mentality of the last few years won’t work against modern defenses. Favre has become a game manager this season while racking up an impressive number of touchdowns and throwing a career-low seven interceptions. But it also doesn’t hurt to have running back Adrian Peterson standing behind him.Saints running back Reggie Bush doesn’t look like the same collegiate player from USC who avoided contact and juked around defenders. To the surprise of football fans around the country, Bush ran over defenders to gain chunks of yards against the Arizona Cardinals last weekend. New Orleans possesses a three-headed monster of running backs featuring Pierre Thomas, Mike Bell and Bush. Along with their dynamic pass offense, led by quarterback Drew Brees and stud receiver Marques Colston, the Saints have almost a limitless arsenal on offense.Don’t discredit the Saints defense. After a week of rest in the bye week in Wildcard weekend, key defensive players had time to heal their injuries. This was surely displayed when the Saints defense made Kurt Warner look like Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. The Viking defense is easily the superior squad in this contest. The front four of Minnesota’s defensive line tormented Tony Romo the entire contest last weekend, not allowing the Dallas quarterback to produce anything significant. Jared Allen leads arguably the best defense line in football and the team secondary is ranked among the league’s elite.The Superdome should play a significant factor in this Conference Championship game. The Saints will ride the New Orleans crowd that is begging for their first ever Super Bowl. The No. 1 seed in the NFC should answer their call to win the high-scoring contest.Pick: New Orleans Saints read more

OSU won, 96-86.Credit: Nina Budeiri / Lantern photographerIn a tight contest, the Ohio State women’s basketball team defeated Virginia Commonwealth after pulling away late in the game.OSU junior guard Ameryst Alston got the action started with a quick layup in the opening seconds of the 96-86 win. Both teams shot the ball well through the first six minutes as the game was tied, 20-20. Then a jumper from freshman guard Kelsey Mitchell sparked a 19-7 run over a span of nine minutes to take a 39-27 lead for the Buckeyes.Virginia Commonwealth outscored OSU, 16-13, in the last 5:48 of the half to make the score 52-43 as the teams headed to the locker room. The Buckeyes shot 58 percent from the field in the first half, while holding the Rams to 37 percent.The Rams opened the second half with an 8-0 run to cut the Buckeye lead to just one point. But OSU answered with an 11-2 run to bring the lead back into double digits. OSU went on to score seven unanswered points to take its largest lead of the game, 70-56.Virginia Commonwealth cut the deficit to six with less than nine minutes remaining. After an 8-2 run by OSU, the Rams hit three consecutive 3-pointers to pull the game within three with less than four minutes remaining in the half. The Buckeyes closed out the game on a 14-7 run to get the 10-point victory.OSU improved to 2-2 for the season. Alston led all scorers with 34 points while Mitchell added 29 of her own. Freshman forward Alexa Hart came off the bench to tally 12 points along with eight blocks.Alston said the team excelled in finding an offensive rhythm throughout the game.  “I think we did a pretty good job, we got a nice little pace going,” Alston said. “We kind of got stagnant for a little while but I think we did pretty good offensively.”Redshirt-senior guard Amy Scullion added three points and seven rebounds off the bench for the Buckeyes. Scullion was in action for the first time since the end of the 2013-14 season after initially forgoing her final year of eligibility to attend medical school. Scullion said that while she had some anxiety at the start of the game, it eventually wore off. “Not going to lie, I was a little nervous, I felt like a freshman again,” Scullion said. “Once we started going up and down a little bit it wasn’t bad.”Mitchell found herself in foul trouble, earning four throughout the game. Mitchell said that she’s still making the transition from playing defense in high school to college.  “I’m in the process of learning,” she said. “I know I’m at the collegiate level so stuff I used to get away with in high school, I’m not going to get away with. I know as I grow, my fouls have to stop.”Coach Kevin McGuff said Mitchell’s fouls are a result of her effort on the court and sees them as something she’ll eventually overcome.“She’s so competitive and is always trying to make a play for her team that sometimes she gets herself in a little bit of trouble, but she’ll grow through that,” McGuff said. Up next for OSU is a trip to the Virgin Islands to participate in the Paradise Jam. The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Clemson on Thursday at 1:15 p.m. in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. read more
