Syracuse’s 19-goal explosion keyed by spoiling Louisville’s game plan

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The fourth goal of SU’s eventual 11-goal run to end the game was the one that sent the Syracuse fans into a frenzy. Following a score by Julie Cross, the Orange’s usual draw-specialist, the SU sideline erupted.The midfielder skipped off the field with a smile and tapped the stick of a player who’d hardly found her name in the scorebook. It was Emily Hawryschuk, who headed out on the next play to take the draw.That was the blueprint Syracuse (9-8, 1-6 Atlantic Coast) had to work within its 19-8 win over Louisville (6-10, 0-7). Hawryschuk, the Orange’s top goal scorer, was given little space to work with all game due to being face guarded all game by UofL’s Sarah Blalock. While the face guarding formula has worked against Syracuse in the past — specifically targeting Nicole Levy — the Orange overcame it when it needed to, capturing its first conference win leading into ACC Tournament play.Louisville was determined in its game plan from the get-go. Starting from the opening whistle, Blalock identified Hawryschuk and never left her side. Even on the sideline, Blalock locked her eyes on a motionless Hawryschuk, who was away from the action having conversation with SU head coach Gary Gait.“You just get used to it,” Hawryschuk said. “You just know that she’s going to be there.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange has had plenty of time to get used to it. The formula has been used against SU before, when opponents held Nicole Levy without a point in three of the last five games before Sunday.During a recent practice at Ensley Athletic Center, SU players went through the motions of a drill that mimicked those game situations. The Orange set up plays for Levy to receive the ball cutting across the net, giving her space to contribute despite having a defender locked at her hip. Levy cut across again and again, but in a drill that featured her, sometimes she struggled to get a hold of the ball.“We practiced that all week,” said Molly Carter, a freshman attack. “So we were prepared for anything they might do.”But then the Cardinals came with a game plan that gave Levy what she sought for each of the last six games: space. Carter added that Hawryschuk’s absence from the offensive end for much of the game opened a lot of space for the Orange to work with.Levy, who scored for the first time since a six-goal game against Virginia Tech 15 days earlier, laughed when asked if she was relieved that finally, the focus wasn’t on her. It opened up opportunities for her to return to the finesse she’s displayed all season. With the Orange holding a nine-goal lead, the junior darted in a straight line from the left side of the net and spun in midair, firing a shot through her legs to push the Orange lead to double digits.“I don’t think much was really going through my head, we were up by a lot so we were just having fun,” Levy said. “And I figured, I don’t know, I want to have fun.”While the offense didn’t present itself often, Hawryschuk’s contributions still remained strong. In Syracuse’s season-long struggle with the draw, Gait has experimented with multiple players to give SU a boost. The lack of possessions have plagued the Orange on both offense and defense, but on Sunday, a handicapped Hawryschuk was able to anchor the unit, leading SU to an 18-11 victory at the faceoff X.“I think it’s just the mental preparation that you have to do beforehand,” Hawryschuk said. “You have to focus on the offensive game plan but at the same time you have to study the draw and know what you have to do.”But for much of the game, the star sophomore stood still. But, in the play that started SU’s run, Hawryschuk decided it was best for her to move.Gait couldn’t remember at first, but the two exchanged laughs postgame as they discussed Gait’s defensive advice that Blalock inadvertently had listened upon, still eyeing the every motion of Hawryschuk. Instead of playing defense, the sophomore did was she’s always done best. She faked right, she faked left and sent the ball into the net to break a tie that Syracuse never looked back from.Then she retreated back toward the outer edge of the SU offense, similar to the strategy SU has employed with Levy, but this time the absentee was not needed.“I took myself out of the game,” she said.And, finally, it worked.

George Springer hears a snippet from the Astros’ 2020 road trip soundtrack

first_imgMORE: Trevor Bauer on how 70 percent of MLB pitchers are cheatingSix position players are left from that now-infamous team. Five have been booed while playing on the road in the Grapefruit League; the sixth, Josh Reddick, has yet to appear in a major league spring game.On Monday, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa and Yuli Gurriel heard it at the Tigers’ park in Lakeland. Here’s some of the reaction to Altuve, who has denied allegations that he and other hitters wore buzzers to receive stolen signs last year.Jose Altuve’s first appearance at the plate this spring. #astros pic.twitter.com/axIfy3G1ch— David Nuño (@DavidNunoABC13) February 24, 2020On Wednesday, George Springer got his earful in Port St. Lucie.He was greeted coldly before each of his three at-bats against the Mets. In his second trip, against reliever Justin Wilson, he tried to hit a pitch onto Interstate 95 a few miles away. He failed miserably and instantly became the butt of internet jokes.George Springer is showered in boos as he steps to the plate, tries to hit a ball far to silence the crowd and falls to a knee pic.twitter.com/HhRXIBOGyj— SNY (@SNYtv) February 26, 2020Was Springer already fed up with the fans’ response, or was he just swinging hard at a hittable pitch while preparing for the season? There’s no sign anyone tried to ask Springer after the game, so who knows? If he was trying to stick it to the boo-birds, then that’s not a good sign. That means Springer has already grown rabbit ears, which are really bad things to have in baseball. Rabbit ears betray distraction, frustration and anger. Players know better than to grow them because then they’ll hear worse stuff.The attendance for Astros-Mets on Wednesday was 4,088, a fraction of the people the Astros will be playing in front of a month from now in the regular season. Houston’s first road trip is to Oakland and Anaheim and includes the Angels’ home opener on April 3. The 40,000-plus who are expected at Angel Stadium will likely include a large contingent of Dodgers fans who are ready to vent over their team’s loss to the Astros in the Fall Classic three years ago. The Astros who were around the team then could embrace their role as baseball’s heels and tell those fans to bring it on. If they do that, though, then they better be killers on the field. They best not come up empty the way Springer did Wednesday. Then those fans won’t let them hear the end of it. The Astros boasted the Killer B’s a generation ago: Bagwell, Biggio, Bell and then Berkman. Today’s Astros are associated with other B’s — more like scarlet letters, really: banging, buzzers and boos.Ah, yes, the boos. They’ve been loud, they’ve been constant and they’re not going to stop for a while. Everyone wearing a Houston uniform has heard them during the first week of exhibition games in Florida. They’ve been fans’ direct responses to the club’s sophisticated (and, eventually, against-the-rules) sign-stealing scheme during its 2017 World Series championship season.last_img read more

Top 10 Windows 8 Features #4: Windows To Go

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair The basic premise of Windows To Go sounds like it escaped from an alternate universe: Now you can take Windows home with you from work, and run it on your living room PC. “That’s crazy,” you might respond, “it’s already on my living room PC!” But this is Windows 8, which is so, so different that the ability to create take-home, bootable OS instances on a thumb drive actually makes sense in a number of important ways. Ironically, though, Windows To Go isn’t really about Windows 8 at all. It’s about the benefits of getting Windows into a space that used to be too tight for it to fit – and also an experimental, bottom-up approach to implementing tighter network security.Easily the biggest threat to businesses’ network security has come from their employees’ ability to connect their PCs to corporate networks, both directly and remotely. Most unwanted activity derives from the outside, which is partly why typical security models adopt the “fortress mentality” ­­– a scheme which is largely incompatible with openness of cloud computing. Similarly, the trend toward Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work was intended to save on capital expenditures, but somne companies end up spending the savings on network maintenance: remediating all the malware and other unwanted content that employees bring with them.So Windows To Go is an experiment in what Microsoft calls an “alternative workplace scenario.”The Open, Closed SystemHere’s the basic premise: Businesses need to be able to manage the workspaces on which their applications are being used, but employees may not want their personal computers managed for them by their bosses. Borrowing an idea from virtualization, Windows To Go creates an environment that can be managed separately from the personal environment, letting employees lend businesses the use of their processors without signing over the deed to their computers. Employees use the business workspace while the Windows To Go thumb drive is plugged in and operating. Once it’s removed, the computer resumes being personal again. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… scott fultoncenter_img The quandary doesn’t end there. After having Microsoft officially “trust” the “machine” it loaned me, I had difficulties getting Windows To Go join the homegroup. On two occasions, after I shut down the laptop running Windows To Go, the fact that the machine with my Account wasn’t in a homegroup synced with the Windows 8 RTM tablet that was, subsequently kicked it out of the homegroup and forced me to retrain it to recognize my own network.  You have to ask whose genius idea was it to synchronize a setting stating explicitly the lack of connectivity, over a machine that must obviously be connected in order to sync in the first place?Why Windows To Go MattersIt’s the type of ridiculousness – with a capital “M” – that I’ve gotten all too used to over the decades. And yet I rank Windows To Go #4 on my Top 10 list of Windows 8 features. Am I an “oxy-moron?”Here’s my thinking: One of Microsoft’s distinguishing features has been that it rarely quits anything after the first try. There is clearly something to the idea of giving employees a safe workspace they can hold in their hands. Windows 7 tried separating workspaces virtually with the homegroup concept – a way of separating home policies from work policies, so that unwanted content in one does not infect the other. Homegroups typically work well (at least in Windows 7-only scenarios), but because homegroups and workgroups share local hard drives, the concept is not perfect. And delivering virtual workspaces as virtual machines doesn’t change this fact.If you could run an entire workspace without the need of the local hard drive, and without impacting performance, you could improve business network security tremendously. This is why Windows To Go is such a big deal: It could lead, eventually, to huge savings for business. User Account Control was a big deal for Vista too, and as you’ll recall, Microsoft didn’t get it right the first time or the second time. But the third time was the charm and I look forward to a similar progression for Windows To Go.See All of the Windows Top 10 Windows 8 FeaturesNo. 10: Refresh and ResetNo. 9: File HistoryNo. 8: Storage SpacesNo. 7: Client-side Hyper-VNo. 6: Secure BootNo. 5: Live Performance and Reliability Charts Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#Microsoft The Windows To Go thumb drive is something admins will have to prepare themselves; it’s not a device you buy from Microsoft. Back in 2006, Microsoft premiered a concept called Windows Image Manager (WIM) which is a system for preparing installations of Windows that already include both the policies and the software (including third-party) that businesses prescribe, so that it can be painted onto multiple users’ systems in one step like wallpaper.  With the new Windows Server 2013, admins can use this same WIM to paint Windows 8 Enterprise images onto thumb drives. So a Windows To Go image is a copy of Windows 8 that’s licensed to the business, not the employee. The worker can use it at work or at home, and it contains either the applications or access to the applications that the admin directly manages. And even if a worker does take her own PC to work with her, she can use the Windows To Go image during work hours separately from the (presumably licensed) operating system installed on that PC.To pull this off, Windows To Go makes some very significant tradeoffs, some of which will render the whole idea a non-starter for some businesses and users.  The biggest sacrifice is that the user’s local hard disk is inaccessible from the Windows To Go environment. If there is any single way to absolutely ensure that the Windows To Go workspace doesn’t get infected by downloaded malware, it’s completely annihilating access to the local hard drive.So where are you supposed to store documents, you may ask? A PC with Windows To Go can access the storage devices of systems in its local network.  Microsoft provided me with a Windows To Go drive using the last Windows 8 Release Preview for my own experiments. I have several PCs in my peer-to-peer office network, some with Windows 7, others with the Windows 8 Release to Manufactuing (RTM) version. Ironically, I had no trouble sharing documents with the Windows 7-based machines; the Windows 8 devices had more difficulty, in some cases with the whole notion of password-protected sharing.In a test involving three PCs (one Windows 7, one Windows 8 RTM with OS provided by Microsoft, and the third Windows To Go), the Windows To Go machine appeared to kick the Windows 8 RTM machine out of the homegroup (more about that concept in a moment). While the Windows To Go machine was booted, the homegroup password created earlier by the Windows 7 machine was considered invalid. But once the Windows To Go machine was powered off, the same password was accepted.It’s enough that admins have to deal with networking issues between their own PCs, without having to introduce a truckload of new issues with their colleagues’ PCs. Besides all that, assuming networking connections are not a problem, not everyone will have the luxury of more than one PC at home.Given all that, the preferred response to the question of where you store your documents is, “In the cloud” – specifically Microsoft’s own SkyDrive. After all, Microsoft has always tried to leverage its strength in one platform to promote another.  An Interesting ExperimentWindows To Go is most definitely an experiment (though not a terribly costly one for Microsoft) to see whether businesses have any influence over what operating system gets used at home. If admins like the idea of a controllable business environment that isn’t a virtual machine, that’s administrable through System Center or other common tools, and that’s guaranteed to be disconnected from the key delivery source for malware in businesses, they might just get employees to swallow it like candy. In turn, those employees get the new Windows 8 and probably Office 2013, plus a channel for syncing documents.Here is where the enticement may start to fall apart, for both parties: The reason a consumer would want to try Windows 8 is to play with all its cool features, including the Windows RT apps installable from the new Windows Store. But such apps would have to be installed on the Windows To Go device, not on the PC. It’s doubtful that admins would permit users to do this.For companies, the whole point of administrator control of business workspaces is to have control over the Desktop. Administering the Desktop, by definition, is taken to mean keeping it stable. But the Windows 8 Start Screen, which sublimates the old Desktop, is as unstable as NBC’s fall schedule. By design, it’s a bubbling cauldron of change, intended more to be cultivated like a garden than administered like a bookcase. Typical company manuals instructions like, “To launch the application, double-click on the icon in the second column of the fourth row,” are pointless for the Start Screen, whose tiles for Office apps can literally float off the screen if the user bookmarks enough pages in Internet Explorer.Security & Reliability Are Still IssuesBelieve it or not, there’s also the issue of security ­­– which was supposedly the whole point of Windows To Go’s existence. Because the operating system is stored on a thumb drive – an easily copyable unit of memory – it cannot be considered a trusted device by any security system that relies on a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for authentication.  For some business networks, that’s the ballgame; if you can’t log on from a system that doesn’t have TPM, forget it. What’s more, Microsoft’s own BitLocker – which encrypts and protects content stored on thumb drives and other removable storage ­­– prefers the presence of a TPM for authenticating its encryption keys. You can go without it, but in a TPM’s absence, Windows To Go’s alternative is the use of something called a “secure password,” which these days ranks up there with “safe school” and “affordable health insurance.”The final leg to stand on is reliability, and Windows To Go teeters here as well. A big part of Windows 8’s value proposition is synchronization, which takes place through what’s now called the Microsoft Account. When you log onto a new Windows 8 machine using an existing Account, many of the settings from the previous machine (your avatar, choice of colors, Desktop wallpaper among them) carry over. For syncing to happen reliably, each Windows 8 machine must be registered with Microsoft as “trusted.”That’s a tall order for a device that isn’t really a machine at all. If you tell Microsoft to “trust” a Windows To Go instance as though it were a machine, and anyone were to copy that thumb drive, suddenly you’ve cloned the machine. Which one does Microsoft trust now? What’s the value of a trusted machine if any one of them may not actually be a machine, or that one could be more original than the other?last_img read more

More questions and answers on Nutrition and Cancer

first_imgMalnutrition still a problem, slide from oncology webinarMore answers to your questions:Questions not answered in the Nutritional Management of Adult Oncology Patients:Does the Academy recommend refined fish oils to avoid the potential exposure to heavy metals?Answer: To my knowledge, there is no recommendation regarding refined vs other fish oils to avoid potential exposure to heavy metals. Evidence-based public health recommendations generally suggest that the benefits derived from consuming fish, seafood and fish oils outweigh the potential harms of exposure to environmental toxicants/contaminants, so long as the EPA-FDA advisories and safe eating guidelines are followed.Would you recommend foods high in certain antioxidants although antioxidant supplements are not recommended?Nutrient-rich whole foods high in antioxidants should be encouraged due to their various purported roles in protecting from cancer. The high doses of supplemental antioxidants shown to have potential dangerous effects in cancer are unlikely to be reached through diet alone.What about the use of herbal supplements for specific types of cancer, palmetto for prostate cancer?Answer: The evidence suggesting a potential benefit of taking saw palmetto to prevent or treat prostate cancer is primarily based on laboratory and animal studies. The scientific evidence remains insufficient at this time to recommend its use in prostate cancer.For more information, you can listen to the recording on the event page.References:http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/hed.23599/abstracthttps://www.cancer.org/treatment/survivorship-during-and-after-treatment/staying-active/nutrition/nutrition-during-treatment.htmlhttp://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/hed.20447/fullhttp://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.3322/caac.21142/fullThis blog was posted by Robin Allen, a member of the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) Nutrition and Wellness team that aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.  Find out more about the MFLN Nutrition and Wellness concentration on our website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and LinkedIn.last_img read more

Spring and Summer Scares: 5 Highly Anticipated Horror Films

first_imgJordan Peele’s Us is killing it at the box office — like a homicidal doppelgänger. Here are a few upcoming scary movies looking to duplicate that success.If the staggering number of box office records broken by Us are any measure, it seems horror’s having a moment — Jordan Peele’s follow-up to 2017’s Get Out had a $70 million dollar opening weekend. And, seriously, it pretty much broke every record ever.There’s great news for anyone craving more big-screen bumps in the night, filmmakers and cinephiles alike — the next few months are loaded with horror releases, perfect for peeking at from behind your fingers.Pet Sematary (April 5)Image via Paramount.Hollywood has long been in the habit of adapting Stephen King’s work, and the success of 2017’s It means they won’t be breaking that habit anytime soon. Next up — Pet Sematary — from director duo Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer.This tale of digging things up that should probably remain buried has already been a movie once, but the directors of this version promise (light spoilers in the following link) some new takes on the classic source material. We’re just excited to see what John Lithgow does with the role of iconic old-timer, Jud Crandall.The Curse of La Llorona (April 19)Image via New Line Cinema.A Latin American folktale that has terrified people for years, La Llorona is a spectral, weeping woman that drags children to a watery grave. Now, this good old-fashioned historia de fantasmas gets a chance to scare a whole new audience with the release of The Curse of La Llorona.Fans of The Conjuring series should take note: though New Line Cinema isn’t promoting The Curse of La Llorona as part of The Conjuring universe, Tony Amendola’s character, Father Perez, is featured prominently in 2014’s Annabelle.BrightBurn (May 24)Image via Sony.Alternate versions of Superman’s life have been done before. DC’s Red Son is set in a world where his alien-crib-ship landed in the Soviet Union, for instance. BrightBurn isn’t taking the “red scare” approach. No, this film (produced by James Gunn) offers a “what-if-Superman-was-super-evil” kind of scare.Obviously, this movie isn’t an actual Superman story, because the universe is a cruel, unjust place. But now that Gunn’s been spending some time at the DC offices, we want to believe he, at least, asked a couple of high-level execs if BrightBurn maybe could be.Ma (May 31)Image via Universal.Blumhouse Productions, the company behind such scary offerings as Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Get Out, is back with Ma — a movie that sounds a bit like a genre mashup of Misery and Dude, Where’s My Car Because Now I’m Afraid Of Octavia Spencer So I Have To Leave Immediately.According to info supplied by Universal Pictures, Ma seems to be a spin on the classic: “lady invites teens to party in her basement, insists they call her Ma, demands they don’t curse, asks that they never go upstairs, gets really murdery” trope. We’re in.Midsommar (August 9)Image via A24.Writer/director Ari Aster made quite an impression with his (OMG — Did I just see that?) feature-film debut, Hereditary. (Insert tongue pop here.) His follow-up, Midsommar, looks to be just as much of a head-trip.The trailer features some cult stuff, some Scandinavian stuff, some young-people-at-a-weird-festival stuff — there’s no telling where Aster’s going to go here. In an interview with Vulture, he says, “It’s a breakup movie, in the same way that Hereditary is a family tragedy. It’s less overtly a horror movie, but it’s still working in that same space. It’s very macabre. But people shouldn’t go in expecting Hereditary.” He continues, “It’s a Wizard of Oz for perverts.” Okay, then.Upcoming Fall and Winter Frights2019’s cooler months look promising for horror fans, too, including It: Chapter Two (September), the long-awaited Zombieland: Double Tap (October), and Doctor Sleep (November) — a sequel to The Shining, starring Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson. Until then, the films above should be enough to keep you checking under your bed and in your closet.Cover image via New Line Cinema.Looking for more film industry news?
