Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback “Man, where do you start? First, it’s understanding the enormity of it, that when you get there, it’s going to blow you away,” Wright said. “And I would even give more advice now in that when we went in ’09, it blew us away, right, so I knew to expect that.”Wright’s Wildcats lost the national semifinals to North Carolina in ’09. In 2016, Villanova beat the Tar Heels for the championship.“The difference in seven years, what they had done to the Final Four and all of the trappings and the murals on the side of buildings of your players, everything had grown so much, I was shocked. Still shocked, even though we had been there before,” Wright said.“Just to understand, don’t feel like you’re not worth it when you get there and you’re blown away. It happens to everybody. And just try to concentrate on the basketball part of it.”Everything about the last month has been new and exciting to Moser and the Ramblers, starting with their Missouri Valley Conference championship and first NCAA appearance for the school since 1985.Nothing has fazed Sister Jean’s team.“So I love that they’re enjoying this,” Moser said. “Now, with that said, times it by about 100 with the Final Four hoopla, and I get that. I’m going to let them enjoy the ride, and when we’re in film, when we’re in practice, when we’re in walk-throughs in the ball room, everything is going to be as normal, as focused and about what we do. These guys are mature enough to handle it, and that’s all I can do. I mean, you can’t simulate what’s about to happen. They’ve got to go through it, and I want them to go through it.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery LATEST STORIES With Majerus gone, Moser has tried to channel him through mutual friends and admirers, such as former University of Utah player and Saint Louis assistant coach Alex Jensen.“I worked with Al Jensen, who’s now at the Utah Jazz, and we were texting each other and going to have a conversation, and we were talking about a couple things Coach Majerus was doing,” Moser said. “But I definitely am in the school of thought, it is my first time, and if I can get any advice or anything, I’ll take it all in and then mix it to what we do.”Beilein said what sets Final Four weekend apart is the time demands, including media obligations.“It’s our duty as college basketball teams and (for) fans to satisfy those requests. But it is, it’s a lot of the same questions over and over and over and over again, and you’ve just got to do it and do it the right way,” Beilein said. “Do not get frustrated by it because you will have enough time to plan if you plan your day right.”Along those same lines, Wright said the grandness of the whole thing can be overwhelming.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “I wish Coach (Rick) Majerus was around,” Moser said. “Obviously I was so close to him, and, ironically, it was 20 years ago almost to the date that he was in San Antonio with his Utah team. I wish I could tap into that.”Moser will be the only coach in the national semifinals in San Antonio this weekend who has not previously taken his team to a Final Four. Michigan coach John Beilein, whose team will face Moser’s 11th-seeded Ramblers in Saturday’s first game, is making his second Final Four appearance with the Wolverines.

ATHLETICS: It’s the question on everyone’s lips at the moment in underage athletics – and that is, ‘Who will be crowned the fastest Kid in Donegal?’On-going trials are happening throughout the county with visits to Gael Scoil, Leitir Ceanainn, Lurgybrack and St Eunans and Raphoe today. The visiting team headed up by Olymic manager Patsy Mc Gonagle and school coaches Hollie Duddy, Sharon Bradley, Dermot Mc Granaghan and Oisin Cannon was greeted with great excitement and quite a degree of noise as all in the u8 category boys and girls tried out.Patsy Mc Gonagle expressed his thanks to each of the schools that he has engaged with today and Monday still to go – we look forward to an energetic gathering at Finn Valley AC next Tuesday night 6pm when that initial question will be answered.Who is the fastest Kid In Donegal?ATHLETICS: WHO WILL BE CROWNED THE ‘FASTEST KID IN DONEGAL’ was last modified: January 22nd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal’s Fastest KidSport Athletics
Members of Lifford AC at the Riverine 10KA big thank you to all who turned out on a wet wet morning for running in the Lifford AC Riverine 10K.While up to 100 pre registered didn’t make it, we still had 280 recorded 10K finishers as well as 25 walkers, pushing the numbers overall to up over 300.For those who missed out, while it was wet, there wasn’t a breeze, and we told you it was a course conducive to good times. For those who did make it, they were treated to an excellent mens race, with a race to the finish involving three Derry athletes, City of Derry’s Declan Reed breaking the tape in 31.09 with Foyle Valley’s Scott Rankin second in 31.13 just ahead of City of Derry’s Greg Roberts also in 31.13. Three men just outside the elusive 31 minute barrier which on a dry day could well have been broken.The womens race also served up a treat, and while the men were just outside their bonus prize target, Irish international, Lifford AC’s Ann Marie McGlynn was in flying form, smashing her 10K personal best by over half a minute to come home in 34.41, picking up the €200 bonus prize for under 35 minutes. Second home was fellow Lifford AC team mate Claire McGuigan who had a fantastic race to clock 38.53, with Finn Valley AC’s Catherine Dooher third in 40.51.The feedback afterwards from the runners was of numerous personal best times and positive feedback also for the course, and overall race organisation and refreshments.Lifford AC wishes to acknowledge the support of all participants who came out to support the 10K and 5K walk. We also wish to thank Dolans Bureau de Change at the Travellers Rest for their kind sponsorship of the race, Joe Gallen and Donegal Creameries for the supply of milk at the finish, all the race marshalls which numbered nearly 40, Lifford Celtic for their marshalling support, and to those who were up since early dawn making refreshments and to those who helped serve teas, helped with registration, etc.Thank you to Const Seamus Duffy and his team in the PSNI for their support and help with the race management in Strabane. Thanks also to Pat Carlin who has provided First Aid to all our events and for his professionalism. Finally, thank you to the local residents and everyone who turned out to support the race.Name Team Bib No Cat Chip TimeDeclan Reed City of Derry Spartans AC 331 M40 31:09Scott Rankin Foyle Valley AC

Majella O’Donnell has revealed she has the ideal life because her husband is away half of the year!Majella – has the perfect life!The wife of singer Daniel O’Donnell says she feels like she is single half of the year because the singer disappears to go on tour!“I kind of have a bit of a double-life….because I am single a lot of the time and then I have a husband a lot of the time – ideal really,” she said. However Majella revealed she feels sorry for single people and how expensive it is to live alone.“I find just shopping when I’m on my own when Daniel is away and I have to get stuff for the dinner – I have to buy four onions in a pack or I have to buy a bag of carrots.“Everything is in bulk so you do end up spending more.”She added “Like electricity bills or you put the fire on and it costs the same putting it on for one and putting it on for two. It’s definitely more expensive,” she said.

Oroville >> Behind a game-high nine 3-pointers, the Red Bluff High boys basketball team battled fellow unbeaten Lassen for the 24th Dennis Burnum tournament championship, eventually falling to the Grizzlies 65-56 Saturday night. All-tournament selection Derek Gordon scored 16 and swished four of the team’s nine 3s. Fellow junior Brayden Hutchins dropped in 17 as Red Bluff (7-6) had it at single-digits at 41-33 heading to the fourth quarter, but couldn’t trim it down any further. The Spartans …
The federal government reported today that the unemployment rate fell to 10% for the first time since the recession started last year.But are the numbers accurate?Mint.com is not so sure. The company is giving its own take on what it really means to be unemployed with an amusing video they are calling “The Unemployment Game.“We are curious why Mint.com would take on unemployment as an issue. But take a look at Mint.com and you see the company is clearly trying to take economic trends and provide their own spin on what the numbers mean.For companies in our space, the unemployment issue hits home. Thousands of people have been let go from their jobs. Jobs are hard to come by. So this is a perspective that has some resonance.Free budget software – Mint.comMint.com makes the point that we need to take a closer look at unemployment figures. The government tells us that the recession is over and the economic stimulus is working. But we still have to be thinking about how the Fed reports its numbers. Mint.com says that if you count everyone, the unemployment rate should be 17.2%. Related Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affair The video is amusing. It’s a smart approach that gives a different perspective on the economy. We cover a lot of enterprise issues but the perspectives we see from companies often focuses exclusively on their products and other narrowly focused issues.Mint.com takes a different approach. They are a personal finance service, but the issues they cover affect anyone who works in the business world.

Long-term growthAs for the longer-term growth, both the continued technological advancements from public and private investments and growing public support for clean energy â€• even in the face of a hostile federal environment â€• are enhancing the prospects of wind’s continued growth. Corporate demand for clean energy is burgeoning, and a large number of cities have now made impressive renewable energy pledges.However, supportive federal policy remains crucial to wind’s sustained growth. The best way to ensure that we keep investing in this low-cost, clean resource (and reaping the many economic, environmental, and public health benefits) is to have a strong carbon policy in place that protects the health of Americans and enables the U.S. to capitalize on the global clean energy opportunity. With growing public support and the right policy, we can expect the U.S. wind industry to keep powering its way to a bright future. By RACHEL FAKHRYIn the face of an administration that is hostile toward protecting the environment and addressing climate change, there is a bright spot in clean energy that can no longer be ignored: the nation’s onshore wind industry.The good news was reported out in this year’s annual Wind Technologies Market Report, compiled by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, which said wind energy is the largest source of renewable power in the U.S. for the first time ever.And the news is getting even better. Thanks in large part to important federal policies, in 2016, new wind projects continued to be added at a rapid rate, making up 27% of new capacity additions; the industry added nearly 15,000 new jobs, and now employs a record 102,500 Americans; and average wind power prices remain extremely low at $20 per megawatt hour, which is cheaper than any other form of new power generation. Commercial-Scale Wind PowerGreen Basics: Residential Wind PowerWind Overtakes Hydro as Top Renewable in U.S.Resisting the Allure of Small Wind TurbinesU.S. Wind Energy Prices Hit an All-Time Low Note: This is part one of a series of blogs highlighting recent progress in onshore and offshore wind energy, as well as discussing some of the continued opportunities, challenges and threats the industry faces in the near term. The series was originally published by the Natural Resources Defense Council. Interest remains highThere is continued significant interest in wind energy. The amount of wind capacity in the transmission queues at the end of 2016 is a testament to the bright near-term outlook for wind energy. In fact, at the end of 2016, there were more than 140 gigawatts (GW) of wind capacity in the transmission queues — that’s more than one-and-a-half-times the total installed wind capacity in the U.S.! It’s also higher than all other generating sources in the queue — namely solar or natural gas projects. Although not all of these projects will get built, the substantial amount of wind capacity under consideration is a good indicator of the attractiveness of wind projects to investors and developers. Offshore wind mades its debutWhat’s more, the nation’s first offshore project was commissioned in 2016, the 30 megawatt (MW) Block Island project in Rhode Island, marking a major step forward for offshore wind energy (for more on that, stay tuned for our upcoming blog on offshore wind energy developments).After a remarkable 2016 and 2015, the industry can only expect to report an incredible 2017. In fact, 2017 looks like it will be another remarkable year for wind energy. Wind installations had their second strongest first quarter ever, and just capped off a very robust second quarter with 40% more wind projects under construction compared to last year’s second quarter. Looking forward, we need to continue to prioritize smart state and federal policies for these benefits to continue.Here are some of the key factors driving the industry’s top-tier performance: RELATED ARTICLES Performance is getting betterWind turbine performance is ever-improving. The average 2016 capacity factor of projects completed in 2014 and 2015 was 43%, compared to an average of 32% for projects built between 2004 and 2011. This performance upgrade is largely driven by improvements in turbine design, with average rotor diameter increasing by an impressive 13% compared to the previous five years, enabling turbines to capture a lot more energy. This technology advancement is driven in a large part by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) sizable investments in wind R&D to enable technology innovations and improvements. Rachel Fakhry is a policy analyst in climate and clean air and Midwest programs for the NRDC. Grid operations are improvingGrid operators are getting better at integrating high amounts of wind energy. Fourteen states now have wind penetration of 10% or more — that’s four more states than in 2015 — with Iowa still leading the pack with 37% of its annual generation coming from wind in 2016. Importantly, grid operators are getting better at mitigating curtailment â€• when renewable projects have to reduce output because of congestion on the grid or excess generation â€• as wind penetration increases outpaced any increase in curtailment in most areas of the U.S.This learning will help bring in more renewables into the nation’s electric grids and will further improve project economics. And this is a promising trend, as we need to rapidly boost our renewable energy generation to reduce carbon emissions and achieve our long-term climate goals. As highlighted by the NRDC 5th Annual Energy Report, wind energy supply today is 350% greater than predicted by the U.S. Energy Information Administration a decade ago. Federal production tax creditThe federal production tax credit (PTC) remains a core driver for wind power investment. In December 2015, Congress passed a multiyear extension of the Production Tax Credit (PTC), providing long-term policy certainty for investors and developers. In 2016, power companies all across the country capitalized on the PTC by making strong, smart investments in this low-cost, zero-carbon resource. And the tax credits are expected to further bolster the industry’s near-term growth opportunities. Consider this quote from the CEO of Xcel Energy â€• one of the largest utilities in the U.S. â€• as a testament to wind’s increased attractiveness to utilities: “The fuel of tomorrow is literally on sale today. […] If I’m not firing up natural gas, instead I’m letting wind which is more economical do its work, then everybody benefits.” Costs are coming downWind project costs are declining while performance is improving. Driven by lower turbine prices, the average total costs of installing a wind project fell to $1,590 per kilowatt, a roughly 6% drop from 2015. These price reductions, coupled with improved turbine technology, have put downward pressure on total project costs and wind power prices.After reaching an all-time low in 2015, wind electricity prices remained at the average low price of $20 per megawatt hour in 2016. With prices that low, wind is the cheapest form of new power generation in many regions of the country. The dirt cheap prices are the product of improved turbine performance and continued cost reductions coupled with strong state and federal support.
Facing an unprecedented drought situation, the Maharashtra government has demanded 3 tmcft of water from Karnataka. The demand has been formally stated in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) the two States are likely to sign soon assuring exchange of as much as 5 tmcft of water across both sides of the border. Maharastra’s demand was communicated to Karnataka last week by outgoing Chief Secretary UPS Madan, officials said. “I have communicated to my counterpart in Karnataka that we would be providing water for drinking purposes in exchange for the water they may have to offer us in wake of the drought situation we are facing,” Mr. Madan told The Hindu. 151 taluks Maharashtra is currently going through an unprecedented drought like situation after declaring 151 taluks as drought-affected. The State is getting a Central assistance of ₹4,714 crore for the drought-affected areas but the dams in the State have only 16% of water left. It may dip into its emergency reserves now, officials have said. “Water availability is a concern for us. We are able to provide fodder and other assistance. The government is trying its best to increase the water supply to remote areas,” said Mr. Madan, now an advisor to the Chief Minister. The three tmcft of water will be distributed in the Maharashtra villages bordering Karnataka, where the State is unable to supply tankers. Maharashtra in turn will supply two tmcft of water from the Koyna or the Warna into the Krishna and two tmcft of water from Ujjani dam into the Bhima to help the dry districts of north Karnataka.Earlier this month, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in principle agreed to Karnataka’s demand for water to be released from State reservoirs for drinking in Belagavi district based on the condition that Karnataka should also release water from its reservoirs to drought-hit districts in that State. Personal requestA BJP delegation from the State met Mr. Fadnavis, who had also received a personal request from Water Resources Minister D.K. Shivakumar for release of water for drinking in Belagavi, Bagalkot, and Vijayapura districts on the Karnataka-Maharashtra border. “I told the delegation that we will give water based on availability, but at the same time they should enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with us to provide water to parts of our State from Almatti reservoir. Mr. Shivakumar has agreed to it. The respective secretaries of the two States will work on that immediately. Based on our needs and availability, if surplus water is available we will give it to them for drinking purposes,” Mr. Fadnavis told The Hindu.
