He has been a journalist…More Read more Tags Motorola unveiled a new Z-series smartphone, alongside a new set of Mods peripherals, stating the add-ons offer “unprecedented mobile innovation”.The Moto Z2 Play smartphone is said to offer a “thinner, lighter design and faster performance”. It now measures 5.99mm in thickness, compared with 6.99mm for the previous Z Play, and weighs in at 145 grams, down from 165 grams.It is powered by a 2.2GHz octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor, compared with 2GHz octacore Snapdragon 625. Motorola lists versions with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, whereas the previous Z Play was 3GB only, and also new is a 64GB storage version alongside the 32GB standard.Another notable change is the main camera. Whereas the 2016 device had a 16MP main camera, the new one adopts “12MP 1.4um dual autofocus pixel” technology. The company promised “brighter, sharper photos, even in low light”.Other features include Night Display, which adjusts the screen at night to reduce blue light output, and a redesigned fingerprint reader.Moto Z2 Play first launches in Brazil, with a global rollout later this month. It will cost $499 via Motorola’s online store.New ModsFour new mods were unveiled, which add features to the smartphone through an attached peripheral.Moto GamePad enables users to use the smartphone as a handheld gaming console. It offers dual control sticks, d-pad and action buttons, with 1035mAh built-in battery.An updated JBL SoundBoost speaker offers ten hours of playback and a water-repellent coating. Available in red, blue or black, it also features a “more premium design with fabric and improved contours”.Two Mods are related to power. The TurboPower Pack adds an extra day of battery life, or can be used to recharge the main battery, while the new Style Shell adds wireless charging.Available globally later in 2017, GamePad and JBL SoundBoost each cost $79.99, TurboPower Pack “starts at” $79.99; and Style Shell with Wireless Charging is $39.99.last_img read more

Gov. Schweitzer Says Tuition May Have to Go Up

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. HELENA – Gov. Brian Schweitzer said Wednesday that he understands university officials may have to raise tuition, but he is hoping it is not necessary, as the Board of Regents gathers in Kalispell to make a decision.Schweitzer, a Democrat, said any increase could have been avoided if lawmakers had endorsed his proposal that sent more state money to public colleges. Republican lawmakers countered during legislative discussions on the matter that higher education should face some of the same cuts in state funding as other areas of government.Regents are scheduled to make a decision on the issue Friday morning. Commissioner of Higher Education Sheila Stearns said Wednesday that she has not yet made a formal recommendation.The Missoulian reported Wednesday that the University of Montana president is recommending a 9 percent tuition increase over two years for the state’s universities. That would cost resident students several hundred dollars a year.Schweitzer said the schools rely heavily on state funding, tuition and donations to make ends meet.“If one of or more of those sources doesn’t keep par then something has to give someplace else,” Schweitzer said. “I assumed when the Legislature didn’t approve the budget we proposed there would be pressure on higher education. It may manifest itself in some small tuition increases for university students.”University officials have been able to mostly keep tuition steady in recent years. Schweitzer pointed out other states were being forced to accept double-digit tuition increases during that time, making the Montana schools an even better deal.But Schweitzer said that regents may have no choice but to now increase tuition more.“I think it is difficult,” Schweitzer said “We would acknowledge it would be difficult not to raise tuition, but we are always hopeful they will find a way.” Emaillast_img read more

(Photo: SUE KANE)By PAUL GOTHAMBINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Nick Lawlor outlasted some late fielding miscues, and the Webster Schroeder Warriors rallied to defeat the Ketcham Indians (I), 7-4 in the semi-final round of the New York State Class AA championships.Lawlor struck out three and walked one for his second consecutive complete-game in the state tournament.  The senior right-hander took a 4-2 lead into the sixth inning when Ketcham capitalized on two Schroeder errors to tie the score.“It doesn’t faze him,” Schroeder coach Matt Knight said. “He doesn’t think about all that stuff. He just goes out and throws.”Lawlor escaped a two-on, two-out jam getting a routine fly ball to end the inning.Zach Jenkins highlighted a decisive three-run seventh with a two-out RBI double.“Our guys at the end of the lineup really came on at the end of the year,” Knight stated. “Zach Jenkins has been solid throughout our whole sectional play.”Shane Marshall reached to lead the seventh when he was hit by a pitch. Clean-up hitter Sean O’Neill singled to center field, and Phil Ferranti moved the runners with a sacrifice bunt.It looked like Lawlor would give Schroeder the lead when he sent a line drive to the left side of the infield, but Ketcham’s third baseman Nick Nevins made a diving stop and threw out Marshall at home.Smith alertly advanced on the play and eventually scored on a wild pitch. Josh Simons walked, and Tyler Candelaria capped the inning with an RBI single to center field.“That’s been the story of our whole season,” Knight commented.  “We’ve played six extra-inning games and won five of them. Seems like we don’t get flustered in those situations. We just keep playing the game. Sometimes we don’t play them them clean. We got tough kids. They find a way to win.”O’Neill singled and scored in the second when Simons delivered a two-out infield single.Justin Graham led the third with a solo shot. Smith walked and scored on a passed ball later in the inning.Schroeder made it 4-2 in the fifth. Marshall drilled a one-out triple to center and scored on Ferranti’s two-out opposite field three-bagger.The Warriors advance to the state championship where they will play Shenendehowa (II). The Plainsmen twin duo of Ian and Ben Anderson were both taken in this the 2016 Major League Baseball Draft. The Atlanta Braves chose Ian with the third pick of the draft. The Toronto Blue Jays chose Ben Anderson in the 26th (792) round.  Ben Anderson, Phil Ferranti, Webster Schroeder, Zach Jenkins Webster Schroeder advances to state championship added by Paul Gotham on June 11, 2016View all posts by Paul Gotham →FacebookTwitter分享by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksSponsor ContentBig Data Courses | Search AdOnline Big Data Courses Might Be Better than You ThinkBig Data Courses | Search AdTopCarsIs That The Ugliest Car In The World?TopCarsHealth Every Day MagazineHusband Illustrates Everyday Life With Wife In 40 Pictures, Try Not To Cry!Health Every Day Magazineby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksMore from Pickin’ SplintersBaron keeps Bonaventure close to his heart – Pickin’ Splinters”If you had a Mount Rushmore of MCC baseball, he’s on there.” Longtime assistant Jack Christensen passes away – Pickin’ SplintersFormer Tribune Vennaro signs with Milwaukee – Pickin’ Splinters Follow on Facebook This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping: Round 19

first_imgThe British put in a storming performance to win the last leg of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Europe Division 1 league in Dublin, Ireland today and earn a qualifying spot for the inaugural series Final in Barcelona, Spain next month. Lying second-last on the league table as the competition began, they needed to finish fourth or better if they were to make the cut. And in a thrilling class that was undecided right to the very end, they did it in style, pinning The Netherlands into second while the USA and the host nation shared third.A powerful German team lined out at the Irish fixture, but they had to settle for joint-fifth with France while Ukraine and Spain filled seventh and eighth places respectively. Germany will not compete at the Furusiyya Final as the six nations that have qualified from Europe Division 1 were confirmed today as Switzerland, France, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Ireland and Ukraine.The TrackCourse designer Alan Wade, son of legendary rider and former Irish Chef d’Equipe Tommy Wade, really put it up to them with his track. Initially it seemed it might just not be testing enough, with five of the first-line riders going clear, but as it turned out that was simply evidence of the quality of the field. First into the ring, Germany’s Marcus Ehning and Plot Blue made a single mistake at the vertical that followed the most influential fence on the course – the Post Office double of verticals that had a water-tray under the second element. Even the most experienced of horses tended to do a double-take at this one, and if they didn’t hit it, then the following vertical often fell instead.Britain’s Nick Skelton said the pencil-shaped green and gold poles used in the double “are a bit of an optical illusion, and the liverpool going out, lots of horses had a look at that so the four strides were a bit flat going to fence seven – the rest was pretty straightforward”. Not everyone found it quite so uncomplicated however.Fences fell all around the lovely Royal Dublin Society arena, including the Tara Brooch oxer at fence two and the following vertical at three, but the RDS Library wall at fence four was only disturbed twice during the afternoon. It was after the oxer at fence five that things really began to heat up, with the tricky Post Office double leading to the 1.62m high vertical at fence seven where the black poles were an added distraction. From there it was a gallop on a bending line to the 4.20m wide open water and the following 1.60m vertical, before a roll-back to another water-tray vertical and then the triple combination which led to the final oxer.Just four of the eight competing nations were battling for points today – Ukraine, France, Ireland and Britain – and Ukrainian chances were badly shaken when Cassio Rivetti’s opening clear with Vivant was followed by elimination for Oleg Kraysuk whose 12-year-old gelding, SIEC Ledgepoint, fell when they got into a serious muddle at the troublesome Post Office double. And when team-mates Ulrich Kirchhoff and Katherina Offel collected 28 faults between them they where already trailing the rest of the field at the halfway stage. Despite a superb double-clear from Rivetti the Ukrainians would never recover but, fortunately, they had previously garnered enough qualifying points to make the series Final.Led the WayIt was the Dutch who led the way into round two this afternoon with just four faults on the board followed by the British and Irish with eight while Germany, USA and France were tied on 12 and the Spanish were carrying 20.A fall for Sergio Alvarez Moya when Zipper refused at fence seven did nothing to help Spanish prospects, and although Ehning went clear second time out and Janne Frederike Meyer (Cellagon Lambrasco), Rolf Moormann (Acorte) and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum (Bella Donna) made only single mistakes, the German final total of 20 would leave them well down the order. The American result was anchored by a fabulous double-clear from Beezie Madden and Cortes C, one of four fault-free performances on the day, and when Katie Dinan and Nougat du Vallet left all the timber intact at their second attempt the USA completed with 16.An uncharacteristic 16 faults for Michel Robert whose 11-year-old mare Oh D’Eole was unnerved by the Post Office double in both rounds saw the French having to add eight more faults to their tally. And when Dermott Lennon and Loughview Lou-Lou produced the only Irish clear in the second round, the home side had to add eight also to finish alongside the Americans with 16 at the end of the day.Clears from Skelton and Big Star and Ben Maher with Cella boosted British chances however, and although Robert Smith and Voila left two fences on the floor second time out, a wonderful double-clear from Scott Brash and Hello Sanctos really piled the pressure on the last rider into the ring. Albert Voorn had underpinned the Dutch advantage when foot-perfect for a second time with Tobalio, but two down for Hendrik-Jan Schuttert and Cerona and a last-fence mistake from Michel Hendrix and Wait and See left them much more vulnerable. As Gert-Jan Bruggink entered the ring he knew a clear would force a jump-off with the British, but when his nine-year-old gelding Primeval Dejavu hit the second element of the triple combination it was all over, and the British had secured their 27th victory in the long history of the coveted Aga Khan Cup.Rider of the DayBrash’s two rounds of pure magic earned him the Furusiyya Rider of the Day award. “My horse has been unbelievable for the last six or seven shows” he said. “He’s been jumping clear since London, we’re in the groove in this partnership since the Olympic Games” he pointed out.British Chef d’Equipe, Rob Hoekstra, was delighted – “my team were fantastic under pressure today. We haven’t had the best Nations Cup season but it came right in the end, and I’m very proud of them. Now we’re really looking forward to the Final in Barcelona”, he said. Although Maher was part of Great Britain’s team gold medal winning team at the London 2012 Olympic Games along with Brash and Skelton, this was his very first Nations Cup win. “It was a great day here in Dublin and what a crowd, they were very sporting!” Maher said.The Dublin spectators came in for a lot of praise from the winning riders. The traditional British/Irish rivalry is always guaranteed to draw huge crowds and this year was no exception. Despite the fact that they had been hoping for a repeat home-side victory, the spectators roared their approval during the prize-giving ceremony and victory gallop. “We love this show, we love this trophy and we love this crowd!” said Chef d’Equipe Hoekstra. Nick Skelton agreed, “ I love to come to Dublin – it’s one of my favourite shows. I think the first time I came here was in 1973 as a Young Rider! It’s always great to win here – the people here love horses and they love the sport and that’s what makes it so special” he said.All sights are now set on Barcelona and the inaugural Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Final in seven weeks’ time. A total of 18 nations will battle it out for the trophy at the Spanish fixture, and apart from the Europe Division 1 countries named today, the other nations already qualified are Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Japan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and USA, while Spain will also compete as host country.Just two further rounds of the Europe Division 2 series have yet to take place, at Gijon, Spain on 30 August and Arezzo, Italy on 6 September.Results1.

Macron hopeful of resolving Ukraine conflict

first_img Also On POLITICO Emmanuel Macron’s Brexit game plan By Nicholas Vinocur What Macron wants (and how to judge if he’s succeeding) By Nicholas Vinocur Macron’s price for saving Europe: trade defense By Jakob Hanke Vela and Maïa de La Baume French President Emmanuel Macron and his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko expressed hope Monday of making progress in resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine, Reuters reported.Speaking at a joint press conference after a meeting in the Élysée Palace, Macron said the French government still did not accept Russia’s March 2014 annexation of Crimea.According to the Local France, Macron said, “France is committed to Ukraine’s sovereignty with its recognized borders.” Macron and Poroshenko said they were hopeful that progress could be made in resolving the ongoing conflict in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine. Following the discussions with Macron, Poroshenko said he was “much more optimistic.”The two heads of state said they expect a meeting of representatives from the so-called Normandy Four — Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia — to take place before the G20 summit in Hamburg on July 7-8.Macron added that German Chancellor Angela Merkel shared his commitment to resolving the conflict in Ukraine.Representatives from the Normandy Four brokered a ceasefire agreement in February 2015 in Minsk that aimed to end the conflict between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists. But the agreement has failed to end the fighting and both sides accuse each other of violating the truce.Macron said it is vital that the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe is able to conduct monitoring in the region, as agreed in the ceasefire.The EU recently extended sanctions intended to punish Russia for it actions in Crimea.last_img read more

Losing . . . The Bigger Story

first_imgIf you cover golf long enough, you’re bound to cover an event where the player who loses is a bigger story than the player who wins. As I prepare to cover my 125th major championship, The Open Championship at Carnoustie, I can’t help remembering what occurred in 1999. The loser was, and still is, a much bigger story than the player who won.Please join me on a trip back in time to July 18, 1999 . . .Early in the week, a friend introduced me to a colorful player from France by the name of Jean van de Velde. I was instantly impressed both with his swing and his flair. Betting on golf is legal in Scotland, so after our chat on the range, I made a 50-pound wager on van de Velde to win at huge odds. Going into the fourth and final round van de Velde led by five strokes over Justin Leonard and Craig Parry, by eight over Greg Norman, and by seven over Tiger Woods.Members of the media seemed to be divided into two camps. Some of my media pals were trying to buy a portion of my wager on van de Velde, while others were looking to bet with me that van de Velde would not win. So, what do you think I did? I refused to sell any portion of my ticket, plus took on more wagers that van de Velde was indeed going to win. Yes, as the story unfolds, you’ll see that made me a loser on both counts!As the fourth and final round unfolded, everything was going right for the Frenchmen. Additional media from France were dispatched to cover firsthand this breakthrough for French golf, as it had been 92 years since the last Frenchman, Amaud Massy, had put his name on the Claret Jug.To say that I was already planning how I was going to spend my pending windfall would be highly accurate. As Jean van de Velde stood on the last hole, he was in possession of a three-shot lead. Media members who wagered with me against van de Velde were already streaming into my radio booth to pay off. I made a big mistake by taking their money before it was over. To this day, I regret doing that.One hole to go leading by three strokes, I swear to this day that the engraver had already started carving Jean van de Velde onto the Claret Jug. Then, the unthinkable started to happen and unfolded like a really bad nightmare.Van de Velde, bursting with confidence, opted to use a driver on the 18th tee, when, with a three-stroke edge, using an iron would have been a far more prudent option. His lack of judgment by not playing safe would prove to be his undoing as he found his ball in a terrible lie off the tee. And then, to make matters worse, instead of just chipping back into the fairway, he threw caution to the wind and decided to go for the green and the unthinkable continued to happen. His second shot flared way right, hit a railing on the grandstand, and bounced back into the water. The resulting triple bogey meant he at least managed to get into a three-way playoff with Justin Leonard and Paul Lawrie.Paul Lawrie will always be known as the 1999 Champion Golfer of the Year and has notched his place in the history books for his 10-shot comeback resulting in victory, but Jean van de Velde was still the star of the story.Jean van de Velde and I both learned valuable lessons from that July 18, 1999 Open Championship. Van de Velde will never again hit driver on the last hole when leading by three and for me, I learned never except a wager that might have to be paid back. Sharelast_img read more
