Wolverines finish improbable year

first_imgSBVC (27-7) had its nine-game winning streak snapped and missed a chance to enter the state tournament for the third straight year. Along the way, Gerry Wright became the team’s interim coach after Derrick Pugh was relieved of his duties. Wright started the week in Texas to attend the funeral of his father, Henry Wright, who once was a flight mechanic at Norton Air Force Base. Reserve Leandre Richardson hit a three-pointer and followed with a bank shot on the next possession. The Gauchos never trailed after that point, but it wasn’t easy as the Wolverines were still effective with their pressure and managed to cut the lead to four twice in the final minute. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Wolverines didn’t have their tallest player, Devon Davis, because of a sprained ankle, Through it all, SBVC won the Foothill Conference regular season title. “When we break from the huddle, we say `1-2-3 family,”‘ said Lance Hurdle, who led all scorers with 27 points and was the Foothill Conference Most Valuable Player. “We didn’t become a team, we became a family and that’s what makes this loss so tough because the family will be breaking up. I love these guys.” Without Davis, Valley faced a height disadvantage and Saddleback prevented the Wolverines from getting inside shots. SBVC made only 4 of 20 from three-point range and couldn’t open its half-court game. “We were getting the shots we wanted, but the shots weren’t falling” said Wright, who has applied for the full-time coaching position. “I think we became impatient and missed some layups.” Saddleback scored nine consecutive points to take a 58-48 advantage with 6:26 remaining in the game. Brandon James, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, scored on an offensive rebound and power forward Gerard Anderson had a dunk after a Valley turnover. center_img SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino Valley College men’s basketball team endured difficult times this season, and Saturday night’s 72-68 loss to Saddleback in the Southern California junior college playoffs was another example of how the team shared strength through the hardships.

Kindle Comes to the Mac App Store

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… audrey watters Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#E-Books#web Related Posts E-Reading on Your MacIn July of last year, usability expert Jakob Nielsen studied reading speeds and user satisfaction, comparing the iPad, the Kindle, the PC, and the good old-fashioned paperback. Electronic versions of books were all found to be slower reads, but participants in the study said found the iPad, the Kindle, and the printed book to be pleasurable – far more pleasurable than reading on a computer.The Kindle app addresses some of this, perhaps, as it delivers the text in a similar way to other e-readers. But those in Nielsen’s study said they were less prone to read on their PCs as it reminded them too much of “work.” Furthermore reading on the computer really didn’t mimic the same sort of book-reading experience that e-readers had managed to capture.Have you downloaded the new Kindle app yet? And whether you have or not, do you think you’d find yourself reading books on your Mac as you would via other – dedicated or not – e-readers? Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… “Buy once. Read everywhere,” the Amazon Kindle advertises. And “everywhere” now includes your Mac, with the addition of a Kindle app for the new Mac App Store. The free app has quickly shot up the Mac App Store bestseller list. It’s number 3 for free apps at the time of publishing – not surprising since there are no other e-reader app competitors currently available. Even Apple has not put its e-reader app, iBooks, in the Mac store yet.Like the other Kindle apps – for iPhone, Android, iPad, for example – as well as the Kindle itself, the new app offers “Whispersync” so that your Kindle e-books are synced to the page you’re reading, no matter the device you’re using.The app also features most of the same features: you can bookmark, annotate, and of course, launch the Amazon store. Highlighting a word doesn’t bring up the integrated dictionary, however. And while the Kindle app doesn’t have that page-turning animation that iBooks boasts, there’s something about reading on the Mac that seems even less like flipping through a book. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Clarksons Boxship Deliveries Entering Moderate Era

first_imgzoom As containership deliveries dropped from the record 1.7 million TEU in 2015 to just 0.9 million TEU in 2016, the boxship sector could enter a new era of less robust fleet growth if deliveries remain at moderate levels, Clarksons Research said.The slowdown in boxship deliveries in 2016, alongside record levels of demolition, led to fleet growth of just 1.2% during the year, down from 8.1% in 2015. The volume of containership capacity delivered in 2016 was the lowest since 2004 and dropped by 46% y-o-y to 127 vessels of 903,662 TEU.Deliveries in 2016 were concentrated in the larger sizes, with 89% of delivered capacity accounted for by the 8,000+ TEU sector, the highest level on record. However, delivered capacity in the 8-12,000 TEU sector declined 53% y-o-y, while deliveries in the 15,000+ sector dropped by 50%.In the sub-8,000 TEU sector, deliveries declined 52% y-o-y to just 102,536 TEU in 2016, reflecting limited ordering in this size range in recent years, and overall in 2016 the sub-8,000 TEU fleet declined by 4.8% in terms of capacity.Clarksons Research said that current projections suggest that deliveries in 2017 may accelerate from 2016 levels, boosted by the surge in mega boxship contracting in 2015. Deliveries in the 15,000+ sector in 2017 are expected to be fairly similar to 2015 levels, which is likely to present continued challenges to operators managing capacity on the mainlanes.However, overall delivered capacity is projected to remain below the 2015 level, with very limited deliveries projected in the mid-size sectors. Deliveries into the smaller sectors are projected to rise y-o-y, although remain at a historically subdued level. In 2018, total boxship deliveries are projected to remain relatively steady y-o-y, Clarksons Research said.last_img read more

Quebec First Nation and feds reach claims agreement for more than 116

first_imgOTTAWA — A Quebec First Nation has reached an agreement to settle 29 claims with the federal government and receive $116 million.The federal government also says it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation to guide how the two sides will partner to work on issues including the recognition of rights, socio-economic development and self-determination.Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation is located near the Quebec municipality of Maniwaki, about 130 kilometres north of Ottawa, with more than 3,400 members.The members of the First Nation accepted a settlement for 29 claims within the town of Maniwaki and can request that 363 acres of land could be added to the reserve as part of the settlement, or approximately the size of 180 soccer fields.Indigenous-Crown Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett says in a statement the announcement marks an important step to strengthen the relationship between the federal government and the community.In the same release, Frankie Cote, a band councillor with Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, said the settlement and agreement closes a chapter in the community’s history.“Together, we are moving away from the past where extinguishing rights was a requirement and moving on a path where we take our rightful place as an equal partner with Canada,” Cote said.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Panchayat violence intellectuals criticise TMC admn police

first_imgKolkata: A section of intellectuals today castigated the ruling Trinamool Congress, the administration and the police, claiming that they have remained “silent spectators” while widespread violence is taking place in West Bengal during filing of nominations for next month’s panchayat elections in the state. Former state advocate general Bimal Chatterjee said unleashing of violence to ensure a walkover in the panchayat elections is nothing but incapacitation of democracy. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”Villagers are being subjected to violence and harassment. The leadership of the ruling party, the administration and the police are silent spectators,” social activist Miratun Nahar said at a press conference called by the intellectuals from various fields to protest incidents of attacks on opposition candidates and supporters.Stating that several of these intellectuals had stood up against violence against the people of Nandigram during the anti-land acquisition movement in 2007 against the then Left Front government in the state, theatre personality Bivas Chakraborty claimed that they are apolitical and have protested against any undemocratic activity.
