eLearning on the horizon at South Ripley Community Schools

first_imgVersailles, In. — The South Ripley Community School Corporation is exploring the viability of E-Learning. The program creates different options for staff development, class availability and maintaining academic progress during inclement weather.Superintendent Rob Moorhead says planning started six years ago and devices were provided for students two years later. Once approved by state officials, staff professional development can be scheduled while the daily lesson can be completed online from home.Moorhead is interested in completing the implementation in a deliberate, structured manner so the program can be adjusted as needed to fit the needs of all stakeholders.This summer there will be four professional development days designed to prepare teachers for the possibility of e-learning. Following the training, students will be directed to stay home for one day in September and one day in November to complete classes online while teachers conduct professional development at the school.The Indiana Department of Education is reviewing the request for approval from school officials.last_img read more

It appeared as if Syracuse would escape with a tie, but midfielder Sarah Teegarden was fouled at the semi-circle, just outside the penalty box. She was awarded a free kick and drained it into the net, giving Wake Forest a late victory.The Orange got off to a hot start in the 27th minute. Maddie Iozzi laid a cross into the box and Stephanie Skilton sprinted forward to head it into the net.But Syracuse’s lead didn’t hold for long. One minute after the second half began, midfielder Peyton Perea fired a shot past Syracuse goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan for her sixth goal of the season.The Demon Deacons continued to apply pressure on the Orange defense.

Women’s water polo turns its attention to Riverside

first_imgAfter dropping to No. 3 in the national polls, the Trojans will look to make an impact this weekend at the CBU Mini Invitational in Riverside. Senior utility Annika Jensen prepares to take a shot against the Chinese National Team. Emily Smith | Daily TrojanThe one-day tourney will give the team an opportunity to notch two more wins against Cal Baptist and Pomona-Pitzer.The Trojans’ afternoon will start out against the hosts, Cal Baptist, who have yet to win a game this season. The Lancers dropped three losses at their season opening UCSB Winter Invite, falling to Cal State Northridge, UC Santa Barbara and Arizona State. Despite the losses, the team has thrived on defense so far this season, with goalie Grace Ramirez averaging 10 saves and 8.5 goals-against in her first three games. Later in the afternoon, the Trojans will take on Pomona-Pitzer in their opponent’s first game of the season. Although Pomona-Pitzer went 16-18 last season, many key upperclassman starters, including top scorer Jocelyn Castro, who notched 44 goals last season, are returning this season.The Trojans have never lost a game to either team, going 12-0 against Cal Baptist and 8-0 against Pomona-Pitzer historically. The last time the teams met, USC left the pool with major victories, thundering to a 22-1 victory over Cal Baptist and a 25-2 win over Pomona-Pitzer. The weekend will offer an opportunity for the team to practice its offensive schemes, setting itself up for success later on in the season.The Trojans opened the season with a dominant 18-0 shutout of then-No. 22 LMU, and they look to continue that momentum through a series of unranked opponents early in the season.Before the invitational, the Trojans took to the pool for a friendly match against a rare opponent on Thursday night. The team hosted the Chinese National Team in a friendly exhibition game at Uytengsu Aquatics Center on Thursday night.The friendly match was familiar territory for several Trojans who spent the offseason playing for international teams.Junior goalie Amanda Longan and freshman Paige Hauschild helped the U.S. national team bring home gold at the FINA World Championships this summer, while sophomore Denise Mammolito played for the junior Olympic team at the FINA Junior World Championships. Freshman Nina Ceklic also suited up, playing for the Canada Junior National Team in the junior world championships.The exhibition was the team’s first action at home so far this season. After the CBU Mini Invitational, the team will take an extended break before playing in the Triton Invitational on Feb. 10-11. The tournament will be held in San Diego.last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 18-7 loss to Johns Hopkins

first_imgNo. 6 Syracuse lost to No. 17 Johns Hopkins 18-7 at the Carrier Dome on Saturday. A week after defeating then-No. 4 Virginia by one goal, SU’s offense faltered, firing just 25 shots to JHU’s 46.Here are three takeaways from the game.Problems at the XAfter one of Danny Varello’s best performances of the season, the sophomore couldn’t get anything going from the faceoff X, losing 13 of his 22 attempts. Against Virginia, SU’s top faceoff option won 16-26 of his opportunities, edging the Cavaliers’ Justin Schwenk in the battle, who going into the game was seventh in the nation in faceoff percentage. But Varello couldn’t ride that momentum into the game against the Blue Jays as he appeared constantly frustrated, wondering if the ball would eventually bounce in his favor.At one point Varello sidestepped and burst off the field. It had been a rough going but he had his fourth faceoff win of the game. As he turned his back an SU player had the ball and he had done his job. When he checked back at the action, the ball was on the ground with a Johns Hopkins player scooping it up, starting a break that ended in a score.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textVarello turned back around, away from the celebrating Blue Jays players, held his stick on top of his helmet and pulled it down in frustration. Even when he did right, things still continued to go horribly wrong.Trouble keeping upSyracuse was dominated on the offensive end on Saturday. The Blue Jays fired 46 shots to the Orange’s 25 and SU couldn’t score more than two goals in a row without being interrupted by a Johns Hopkins goal. Dom Madonna faced heavy pressure the entire game, with many of the goals he allowed as a result of being trapped alone with a JHU player directly in front of the goal.Voigt comes up emptyBradley Voigt, who replaced the suspended Nate Solomon in the starting lineup, didn’t provide anything for Syracuse. All season long, Solomon had served as a reliable scoring option for the Orange, netting five goals on the year and taking the fourth-most shots on the team. But, Voigt couldn’t provide that same firepower for Syracuse as the Junior fired one shot, while recording an assist for the silent Orange offense.

Bashir Hayford replies his critics

first_imgAshantigold head coach Bashir Hayford is  Is unperturbed by calls clamoring for his sack.Pressure is mounting on the reigning coach of the season to resign from his post following the team’s abysmal performance in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.The defending Premier League champions have been very poor in the league managing just a single win to leave them 12th with seven points after seven matches.Some supporters of the club have expressed displeasure with their current poor form and wants coach Hayford to leave the club.But the former Asante Kotoko coach says he will only quit if the hierarchy of the club decides so.“I’m not bothered with all that is going on, if they ask me to stop coaching the team today, I will give way and will never go hungry,” he told Nhyira fm in Kumasi “So for those going round agitating that I should be fired- if that is what the board wants- why not I will leave but as I remain coach of the team trust I won’t pay attention to them.” Hayford will be leading his charges to face Asokwa United in the MTN FA Cup. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

Browns’ Duke Johnson says team put him on trade block before he asked to be dealt

first_img Cardinals to induct Carson Palmer into ring of honor “My trade request was to meet them at a middle ground,” Johnson told reporters Tuesday, via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “I was put on the trade block a month before I requested a trade.”#Browns Duke Johnson said he still wants to be traded pic.twitter.com/HPg2P7Aach— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) June 4, 2019News that Johnson wanted to be traded first came out in April after the team signed recently cut Chiefs running back and 2017 Pro Bowl player Kareem Hunt. Related News Duke Johnson still wants out of Cleveland.The Browns running back said he still wants to be traded, but also gave more details about how his original request to be dealt came to be. Coach Freddie Kitchens minced no words Tuesday when asked about the unhappy running back (via NFL Network): “He wants to be traded. I want to win the lottery. It doesn’t matter. He’s under contract. He’s a Cleveland Brown. He’s going to be used to the best of his ability in what benefits the team.”Browns general manager John Dorsey consistently has said publicly that the team will not deal Johnson, but if the running back is to be believed, it was Cleveland that wanted to move him first.Johnson said the news made him feel “unwanted.”However, he said he is happy to be traded if it’s best for the team. “I was put on the trade block to kind of see what the team could get,” he said. “And I mean, at the end of the day, I understand the nature of the business, I understand his job, John Dorsey’s job, is to do what’s best for the team and the organization.”And again, if that’s getting rid of me for a bigger piece, for a better piece, then I’m OK with it.”Johnson played in 16 games with the Browns last season (four starts) and rushed for 201 yards while catching 47 passes for 429 yards and three touchdowns.

E. L. Wiegand Foundation Awards More Than $400,000 To Saint Martin’s…

first_imgLACEY, WASHINGTON — E. L. Wiegand Foundation of Reno, Nevada, has awarded a grant in the amount of $424,532 to the Engineering Initiative at Saint Martin’s University. The gift has been designated for laboratory and IT equipment as well as furnishings for the new industrial laboratory building, which will complement the new Cebula Hall in The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering. To commemorate the gift, the laboratories in the new lab building will be named the “E. L. Wiegand Engineering Laboratories.”“This grant greatly enhances the quality of education and research experienced by all students who enter the E. L. Wiegand Engineering Laboratories,” says University President Roy F. Heynderickx, Ph.D. “We are much indebted to the Foundation for its generosity.”The new engineering laboratory building, nicknamed “The Lab in the Woods,” will house the laboratories for soils, civil engineering materials, manufacturing, robotics and fluids, as well as a wind tunnel, project work space and senior project display space.The grant was approved on Oct. 19, 2012, by the Trustees of the E. L. Wiegand Foundation. One component includes a hydraulic testing system, which is a universal testing machine that performs tension, compression and bending tests up to 100 tons, and a 2D/3D Stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) System. The PIV fluids measurement equipment will be used for experiments in conjunction with the wind tunnel and fluids lab to measure aerodynamic characteristics. Both systems will be valuable tools for civil and mechanical engineering classes. Additionally, the grant will provide for all the furnishings and IT infrastructure in the lab building.“We are very grateful and honored to have received this grant from the E. L. Wiegand Foundation,” says Zella Kahn-Jetter, Ph.D., P.E., dean of The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering. “The equipment will set Saint Martin’s apart from other engineering schools. Our students will have the ability to do state-of-the-art testing, design and research.”“The education and experience students receive from using this equipment will be tremendous,” adds Kahn-Jetter. “The E. L. Wiegand Foundation is enabling The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering to become a premier engineering institute in the state of Washington.”Mr. Edwin L. Wiegand invented the electric heating element in the early 1900s, and went on to found the Edwin L. Wiegand company in Pittsburgh, Pa., to manufacture resistance heating units. Under the trade name “Chromalox,” he developed and manufactured heating elements for home appliances and industrial uses. In the 1970s, he became active in Miami Oil Producers, Inc., an operator of oil and gas properties in the United States and Canada, based in Reno, Nevada. The E. L. Wiegand Engineering Laboratories honor the memory of Mr. Wiegand and the important contributions he made as a scientist, inventor, businessman, leader and generous philanthropist.

Port Of Olympia Earns Return on Solar Power Investment

first_imgThe Port of Olympia added 48 solar panels to the roof of its 76,000 sq. ft. Marine Terminal warehouse in 2011. This is a private investment rather than a community solar project, and uses components locally manufactured in Marysville, Wash. June 2013 marked the end of Puget Sound Energy’s fiscal year and the results of the Port’s energy investment are positive! The solar power system generated a total return of $5,581 for the Port since July 2012. The Port more than met the design goal of maximizing Puget Sound Energy’s energy harvesting incentive of $5,000. In addition, the panels generated 9,687 KWh of electricity, reducing the Port’s energy costs by $581. Combined, the earnings provide a 5.5% return on the Port’s investment.When the Port planned to replace the roof of the then 25 year-old warehouse in 2010, alternatives that would decrease operating costs and increase environmental benefits were a high priority. Energy efficient lighting had already been installed. The Port selected the PVC roof and the stainless steel gutters to reduce the impact on stormwater run-off to Budd Inlet. The Port selected solar panels with a goal of making the warehouse close to energy neutral. The southern face of the warehouse roof is nearly perfectly aligned with the sun for solar installations. The number of panels (48) provides the best return on the investment.A testament to the significance of the renovated, solar-powered warehouse to the community was its selection by Northwest Eco Building Guild for the 2011 South Sound Solar Tour.
