Mallards extend win streak to 4 games

first_imgMadison\’s Ben Long hit a three-run home run with two outs in the third inning Wednesday at the Duck Pond to put the Mallards up 5-1 over the Waterloo Bucks.[/media-credit]For the second consecutive night, the Madison Mallards got strong starting pitching and a big home run off the bat of Ben Long, a combination that produced an 8-5 victory Wednesday over the Waterloo Bucks.Joe Yermal, a sophomore from UNC-Charlotte, pitched six innings and allowed just two runs on five hits to earn his first victory of the season just hours after arriving in Madison.“I just got in here this morning at 1:30 a.m.,” Yermal said. “I had to go get some sleep after that to get ready for tonight, but it was a good opportunity to pitch at home. Making your first start at home is always a big key.”Madison provided Yermal with a 2-0 lead early, scoring a pair of runs in the first inning.Leadoff hitter Kurtis Muller got things going with an infield single and would later advance to second on a wild pitch. Joe De Pinto followed with a single through the infield and while Muller initially was held at third, he would score on a throwing error on the play. De Pinto came around two batters later on a groundout to short by Troy Channing.Waterloo cut the lead to one run in the third with back-to-back two-out singles and a stolen base. Willie Argo singled and stole second before being driven in by Michael Giller, who reached on an infield single.Thanks to Long, however, the score would not remain close for more than an inning. With two on and two out in the bottom of the third, the junior catcher hit a three-run home run to the opposite field, giving the Mallards a comfortable 5-1 lead.“It was great. I just saw a pitch up that I could drive … went with the pitch and it went over the fence,” Long said. “I actually thought the right fielder was going to catch that one with that short porch in right field but it just got over.”It was Long’s second home run in as many games and his third of the season for the Mallards. He now has nine runs batted in and though his average dropped after going 1-for-3 at the plate Wednesday, it remains an impressive .583 (14-for-24) on the year.Long began the season signed to just a 10-day contract, but with the way he has played, the Mallards certainly would not mind keeping him around a little longer.“We’d love to have him here, and I think if we get the opportunity we will,” manager C.J. Thieleke said. “There’s some funny things with the league and the way the roster is maintained. We’d have to lose some guys to the draft maybe or an injury to keep Ben, but we want to keep him around obviously.”The Bucks struck again in the fifth with a solo home run to left off the bat of second baseman Tyler Robbins, cutting the Mallards lead to 5-2. Madison answered back in the sixth with three more runs sparked by singles from Jerrud Sabourin and Adam McClain.Waterloo starter Rick Dodridge finally exited with two on and two out in the inning, finishing with 7 runs (6 earned) allowed on nine hits in 5.2 innings to take the loss.Sabourin, who was playing in his first game with the Mallards this season, went 3-for-3 on the night and was one of seven Madison players to score a run in the game, which proved to be a true team effort for the Mallards.“I thought it was a pretty good, clean effort from everybody,” Thieleke said. “The first week of the season is in the books, and it’s not a bad start for us.”Brandon Wikoff also saw his first action of the season for the Mallards in the game, replacing an injured Chris Barker who started the game in left and batted ninth for Madison. Barker was hit on his right elbow for the third time this week and was removed from the game prior to his at-bat in the third inning in favor of Wikoff, who stayed in the game to play shortstop.With an 8-3 lead heading into the ninth, it appeared to be nothing more than a formality for reliever Kevin Cahill, who came on in a non-save situation. Cahill and the Bucks hitters made things interesting, however, plating two runs on one hit and three walks in the frame.And though the tying run came to the plate, Yermal remained confident in Cahill.“The bullpen looks good; they just come in and do their thing,” Yermal said. “I knew Cahill was going to come in and close the door. That’s what he’s supposed to do and he got it done.”Madison and Waterloo will square off again Thursday at the Duck Pond. Cody Winiarski will take the hill against Scott Williams for the Bucks as the Mallards look to extend their winning streak and sweep a second consecutive two-game set at home.last_img read more

USC collaboration to test VR for stroke treatment

first_imgThe Neural Plasticity and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory is in the process of creating ways for people to go through brain rehabilitation with virtual reality technology. Photo courtesy of VRSC.The Neural Plasticity and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory at USC is exploring the intersection of virtual reality and neuroscience with a new program that aims to help stroke victims. The laboratory aims to implement VR technology in health care under the acronym REINVENT, according to Sook-Lei Liew, head of the NPNL. Liew’s laboratory is partnering with USC Institute of Creative Technologies’ MxR lab for the REINVENT project, which focuses on virtual reality and stroke rehabilitation.“In all areas of human interaction with any kind of sophisticated technology, you want to develop things can amplify human functioning and learning,” said Albert Rizzo, who works at the MxR lab.The MxR lab is  part of USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies and hosts a variety of research at the forefront of virtual development, with focuses on optical physical therapy and game apps.Rizzo explained that in using VR as a medium for rehabilitation or as a tool for data collection, there are three measurements that must be considered.“First is the patient’s self-report — what do they think of the treatment and how do they think they are responding [for example],” Rizzo said. “Next is behavior, which is the measurement of the patient’s interactions before and after the treatment. Lastly, we can analyze body signals such as heart rate, electroencephalogram patterns or measurements of internal states.”Oftentimes, the treatment required for stroke recovery is tedious and frustrating for patients, Rizzo said. Since improvement is infrequent and made in small increments, the ability to distract the patient during rehabilitation and show them data afterward is advantageous.“The best tool VR currently provides us with is an environment in which we can control the stimulus,” Rizzo said. “We see how placing a patient in a game-like environment focuses their attention and allows us to motivate the patient with quantifiable results.”Liew aimed to detect when the patient thinks about moving their hand and create the illusion that they actually are, Rizzo explained. At the time of publication, Liew was traveling and was not available for comment.The application of VR to current technologies is as important as understanding the approach of those methods for stroke patients, according to Julia Anglin, a research lab supervisor at NPNL who works closely with Liew. “While stroke survivors suffered damage to the brain, there is still activity in the motor cortex,” Anglin said. “We’re interested in building the connection back between the brain and the muscles.”The REINVENT project aims to replace a stroke survivor’s arm with a virtual one, so that the brain sends signals to the muscles it rebuilds. In the process, the role of VR is to give the embodiment aspect imitating the feeling and feedback from one’s own arm.Anglin has conducted her own VR research in the past and found differences in the learning mechanisms participants used when conducting a motor function normally as opposed to with virtual reality.When using advanced screening tools, Anglin said researchers can study the brain and create more dynamic stimuli using VR. “These stimuli tell us more about what the brain is doing, and can help us determine what parts of VR are most important during decision-making or interactive processes like stroke rehabilitation,” said David Krum, a computer scientist at the Institute for Creative Technologies.Rizzo, Anglin and Krum all agree that VR has a bright future, as exploration of VR’s practical features has only become a focus in the past few years.As far as REINVENT goes, Anglin explained that they are just starting to measure the efficacy of VR among stroke survivors. While the data hasn’t fully been analyzed yet, she believes the program will continue for a long time. REINVENT is in the process of obtaining new grants.   “Our first grant was based on creating a device that was practical and affordable, and we developed the hardware using open software in collaboration with the ICT,” Anglin said. “So, we suspect this is going to be a long haul.”Krum said that some of the same problems and applications seen in VR today are similar to what the researchers have been working on in the past, in fields like medicine or social communication. The challenge lies in generating VR content and knowing what goes into developing it, Krum said.last_img read more

NB Hails NFF for Honouring 1994 Super Eagles

first_imgThe high point of the second edition of the Nigeria Football Federation Award Night was the honour and tribute to the class of 1994 of the Nigeria football team, the Super Eagles.Almost half of the living members of the squad were on hand to receive the honour , 25 years after the team brail the trail to become Nigeria’s first ever squad at the FIFA World Cup. In doing so, the 1994 Super Eagles also became the first Anglophone African team at the World Cup. Before the World Cup in June 1994, the team also won the Africa Cup of Nations, the first by any Nigerian squad outside the shores of the country. The squad also became the first Nigerian side to feature in the ‘sacred’ turf of the old Wembley Stadium in November 1994.Partners of the NFF and the official brewer of the beer of the Super Eagles, Nigeria Breweries (NB) were thrilled by the honour bestowed on the trail-brailing squad.According to the Marketing Director of the NB, Emmanuel Oriakhi, the recognition of the 1994 Super Eagles was a masterstroke employed by the NFF.Oriakhi recalled that the team not only brought honour to the country, it also attained the highest ranking of fifth position in the monthly rating of national teams which FIFA had been doing since 1993.“Recognising the exploits of that squad is a prerequisite for the advancement of subsequent squads Nigeria has been putting forward,” remarked Oriakhi. He recalled that no fewer than six members of the squad constituted the record-making Nigerian team of 1996 that became the first team outside Europe to win the Olympic Games’ football event in 68 years.Before that exploit, all the previous Olympic Games football gold medals had been won by European countries since the 1928 Olympics which was won by Uruguay. “Significantly, no European team has won since the Nigerian team broke their reign 23 years ago,” remarked the NB Marketing Director who sees this as a further tribute to the heroic performance of the Nigerian team to which his company is a pillar.He is of the opinion that the recognition of the 1994 squad will be an impetus to the current squad that will be featuring in the largest ever edition of the Africa Cup of Nations who could also put their names in gold. “The squad enmeshed in the middle of the FIFA ranking table will be spurred to rise.

All-in Diversity Project to launch #opendoors campaign

first_img Submit AIDP adds two new global advisors August 12, 2020 Related Articles Share Betsson strengthens diversity commitment with AIDP membership May 7, 2020 AIDP hosts first ‘Power Hour’ on racism and equality June 24, 2020 Industry workplace diversity, inclusion and equality program the All-in Diversity Project (AiDP) will launch its new #opendoors campaign which aims to recognise those who ‘have opened career doors for others.’The campaign, which will launch on January 27, hopes to highlight those across the industry which have supported individuals and championed talent. AIDP emphasised that the initiative will also shine a light on how supporting others ‘helps increase levels of diversity, leading to innovation, internationalization and an increase on the bottom line.’“The idea behind #opendoors is simple,” said Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of All-in Diversity Project. “If we really want to progress and be a more diverse and inclusive industry, we need to recognise that we did not get to where we are in our career without the help of someone along the way.“By thanking someone who helped you, you are also pledging that you are willing to hold the door open for someone else who might need it. When we recognise that we didn’t get here alone, we are also recognising some people do not benefit from that support because of assumptions, bias, etc and immediately become more conscious of our differences.”The campaign will be accompanied by a All-in pin badge at ICE 2020 that individuals and companies can wear/display to show their support.“Aside of the opportunity to celebrate those who champion others, we’re hoping that the association of a visual tag linked to some of the most successful individuals and companies in the industry says it all – diversity works,” added Co-Founder Christina Thakor-Rankin.By posting a thank you to a member of the gambling industry, individuals are being asked to call-out those who champion talent and support others, but also to pledge to “hold the door open” for another person in some way.

England’s Cath wins British senior title

first_img19 Sep 2014 England’s Cath wins British senior title England’s Cath Rawthore has completed a spectacular season by winning the senior women’s British championship at Royal Dornoch in Scotland.It’s her third big success of the year, having previously won the English senior stroke play and helped England to become European senior team champions.Cath, from Sale in Cheshire, (image © LGU) commented: “I must say it’s a good feeling to hold the English and British titles and the European team gold all in one season. I will certainly look back on 2014 with pride.”She gradually moved up the leaderboard in the British championship, starting off in ninth place, edging up to eighth after the second round and then became leader in the clubhouse after returning a final round of two-under par 74. It gave her a one-under par total for the event which proved unbeatable.At the start of the final round Cath had been eight shots off the lead, set by Leicestershire’s Helen Lowe, and had not expected to leapfrog the leaders.“I couldn’t believe it. I literally had no clue when I came off the course that I was in contention and when we went to do the cards I was told I was leader in the clubhouse.“Then news came filtering back that the leading competitors had dropped shots and it looked like I would win. I refused to believe it until all scores were in.”She won by two shots from Scotland’s Mary Tain. Two other members of England’s winning European team were also in the top ten. Lulu Housman (Highgate, Middlesex) tied third on two-over par, while Amanda Mayne (Saltford, Somerset) shared eighth place on five over.  Helen Lowe (Scraptoft), who led for the first two rounds, tied sixth on four over.Cath is playing only her second season of senior golf and has made a rapid rise to the top. She made her England debut last year, having made an instant impact with impressive results in the national championships.last_img read more

Meghan wins by eight in USA

first_img26 Feb 2015 Meghan wins by eight in USA England international Meghan MacLaren swept away from the field to score an eight-shot win – and her fifth victory on the US women’s college circuit. The British stroke play champion was 11-under par for two rounds of the JU Amelia Island Collegiate in Florida and was declared the winner when the final round was abandoned after heavy rain flooded the greens. Meghan, 20, set a personal best and a course record with her first round 64, which was eight under par. Remarkably it included a double bogey, on the par four 16th, alongside eight birdies and an eagle. She shot 69 in the second round. Megan, from Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, is a third-year student at Florida International and this is her fifth college win. Meanwhile, Devon’s Jess Bradley has reached the end of a remarkable run of results in US college golf. Jess, a 22-year-old student at Lynn University in Florida and a member at Tiverton Golf Club in Devon, scored 18 consecutive top ten finishes in NCAA Division II events. Her run finally came to an end in the Lady Moc Golf Classic in Florida when she was 19th. It was the first time since May 2013 that Jess had finished outside the top 10 – and only one other player in Division II has ever had a longer top 10 run. During her college career Jess has had six victories, most recently in February when she won the World Golf Invitational for the second year in a row.last_img read more
