Facebook Twitter Google+ In a tied game with only a few minutes left in regulation, Duke’s Ashley Kristen had a chance for a one-on-one with Syracuse goalie Jess Jecko. The ball flew past Kristen and Jecko charged out of the cage.Neither player touched the ball as Jecko faked toward the ball and then simply let it trickle out of bounds.Duke never got a shot off on the play.After Kristen scored just 35 seconds into the game, the Orange only gave up three more shots the rest of the game. No. 10 Syracuse (11-4, 2-4 Atlantic Coast) defeated No. 6 Duke (11-5, 2-4) by a score of 2-1 on a sudden-death overtime goal by Emma Russell in front of 701 at J.S. Coyne Stadium on Saturday afternoon. SU didn’t allow a single penalty corner as its defense kept the Orange in the game, allowing Syracuse to win it.“That’s pretty darn good,” SU head coach Ange Bradley said of allowing only four shots, “… Numbers speak for themselves.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Blue Devils rarely penetrated Syracuse’s circle, a function of the Orange closing down on Duke’s forwards.Multiple injuries to the Orange’s backline forced freshmen Lies Lagerweij and Jessica Ross to both play defense for the first time.Lagerweij and Ross previously played forward and midfield respectively, but they rose to the challenge in the new position.“They didn’t play like freshmen,” Jecko said.Lagerweij had just recovered from a torn posterior cruciate ligament injury and this was her first game back on the field in eight weeks. Unaware of whether she would play, her family came from the Netherlands to visit Syracuse and got to witness her breakout performance.With just over 16 minutes left in the game, Duke’s Robin Blazing sent a lead pass down the sideline to teammate Jessica Buttinger, who then crossed the ball in front of the Orange goal. SU cleared the ball away before the Blue Devils got a shot off.Minutes later, Blazing and Buttinger connected again, except this time, Buttinger was met by Lagerweij and Ross. They double-teamed her along the end line and forced a turnover.When Duke pushed forward on offense, the Orange tried to pinch in defensively to protect the middle of the field.“When we defend, we want the field pretty compact,” Lagerweij said. “So we have to break down the play so we can come back together and then from there we can defend again.”Another key to SU’s defense was Jecko’s communication. She directed the backline and the on-field talking carried throughout the rest of the team, Russell said.“I think there was a lot of communication back there, which is something we haven’t seen all season,” Russell said, “and it really benefitted us and to keep them out of our circle that way.”As Syracuse used players at new positions, Jecko said the intensity in practice was higher this week. The defense usually works on eliminating space for opposing forwards, but it was especially aggressive getting after the offense in drills, then winning the last game of its ACC schedule.“We’ve had a lot of adjustments and positions and injuries,” Bradley said. “… I hope we can just stay healthy and keep growing from here.” Comments Published on October 25, 2014 at 8:20 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds

SAN JOSE — As the stock market continues its steep decline, Joe Pavelski’s value heading toward unrestricted free agency is soaring.Pavelski scored his 23rd goal of the season with 30 seconds remaining in regulation Saturday, allowing the Sharks to steal a point against the woeful Los Angeles Kings by going to overtime. In doing so, Pavelski surpassed his goal total from last season.On pace to score 51 goals, the Sharks captain should be in for a big pay raise this summer.“I knew he was …
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Great walleye hatches from 2014 and 2015 are expected to contribute to exceptional fishing opportunities in Lake Erie this year, according to the ODOW, while anglers pursuing yellow perch in the Western Basin will likely find excellent numbers of fish. Lake Erie walleye and yellow perch fisheries are managed through an interagency quota system that involves Ontario, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, and each jurisdiction regulates its catches to comply with quotas and minimize the risk of over-fishing these species. Quotas for the upcoming fishing season are determined through consensus agreement by these jurisdictions through the Lake Erie Committee of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, which were just recently announced for 2017.As a result of the 2017 quota allocation, the daily bag limit will be six walleye from May 1 through Feb. 28, 2018. From March 1, 2018, through April 30, 2018, the daily walleye bag limit will be four. A 15-inch minimum size limit is in effect during the entire season for walleye. The yellow perch daily bag limit will be 30 from May 1 through April 30, 2018, with no minimum size limit. Lake Erie anglers can find walleye and yellow perch bag limit information at ODNR offices, in special publications at bait and tackle shops and at wildohio.gov. WalleyeOhio walleye anglers will catch fish mostly from the 2015, 2014 and 2013 hatches, with some fish from the 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 year classes. Additional fish from 2007 and 2003 will also be harvested by anglers. Walleye from the 2014 hatch will range from 16-19 inches, while walleye from the 2013 hatch will be between 17-22 inches. Fish from the 2003 and 2007 hatches are likely to carry most of the Central Basin fisheries, and a good number of these walleye will be over the 26-inch range. Large walleye from strong hatch in 2003 will continue to provide “Fish Ohio” opportunities (greater than 28 inches), with this year class nearing the size that may give Ohio a new state record walleye. Additionally, in 2017, anglers should see a number of smaller (less than 15 inches) fish from the excellent 2015 hatch. Anglers are reminded of the 15-inch minimum size limit and encouraged to release these fish with as little handling as possible so they can contribute to the fisheries in future years. As the 2017 season progresses, more of the 2-year-old fish will surpass the 15-inch minimum size limit. Yellow perchExpect excellent perch fishing in 2017, with improving numbers of fish in the Western Basin. Perch anglers in the west will primarily catch perch from 2013, 2014 and 2015, providing a good range of sizes. The largest perch in the Western Basin will come from 2012 and older year classes. Central Basin anglers should expect to find average numbers of yellow perch, with most fish coming from the 2012 year class and to a lesser extent, the 2014 year class. Older fish from years prior to 2012 will provide the potential for trophy yellow perch. Black bassSmallmouth bass fishing in 2017 is expected to be consistent with recent years. In 2016, smallmouth bass catch rates were well above average for the fifth consecutive year, and in 2017, anglers should expect more of the same, including an excellent size range (14 to 22 inches and weighing up to 6 pounds). The best fishing for smallmouth bass will continue to be in areas with good bottom structure, which is the available habitat across much of the entire Ohio nearshore and islands. Continuing the trend from previous years, largemouth bass fishing should be excellent in 2017. This fishery continues to produce exceptional catch rates and some large fish in nearshore areas and harbors across Ohio’s Lake Erie. All black bass (smallmouth and largemouth) must be immediately released from May 1 through June 23. Beginning June 24, the daily bag limit for bass will be five, with a 14-inch minimum length limit. SteelheadSteelhead anglers should enjoy another year of great fishing in 2017 in Ohio’s Lake Erie open waters and in tributaries. Peak summer steelhead action on Lake Erie can be found offshore from June through August between Vermilion and Conneaut, with catches measuring 17 to 29 inches. Most Lake Erie anglers troll for steelhead in deep waters using spoons with divers or downriggers until fish move close to shore in the fall. The daily bag limit remains at five fish per angler from May 16 through Aug. 31, and two fish per angler between Sept. 1 and May 15, 2018. A 12-inch minimum size limit is in effect throughout the year. White bassWhite bass continue to provide excellent seasonal fishing opportunities in the Maumee and Sandusky rivers and in the open lake. The 2017 catch will continue to be dominated by fish from the 2012 and 2010 year classes. Fish from older year classes could be as large as 16 inches. Anglers should focus on major Western Basin tributaries during May and June and nearshore areas of the open lake during the summer. There is no white bass daily bag limit or size limit. Other speciesBays, harbors and main lake shorelines offer excellent fishing for panfish, as well as occasional northern pike and muskellunge in vegetated areas.Updated Lake Erie fishing reports are available at wildohio.gov or by calling 888-HOOKFISH (888-466-5347). Information is available from ODNR Division of Wildlife staff from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the Fairport Harbor station (440-352-4199) for the Central Basin and at Sandusky station (419-625-8062) for the Western Basin.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The American Antitrust Institute (AAI), Food & Water Watch (FWW), and National Farmers Union (NFU) sent a joint letter to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on the proposed merger between agricultural input giants Bayer AG and Monsanto Co. The three groups offered their in-depth analysis of how the proposed deal would likely harm competition, farmers, and consumers. The letter notes that the merger would complete a sweeping restructuring of the agricultural biotechnology industry, creating the “Big 3” companies where just two years ago, there were six major rivals.“The merger substantially eliminates competition across a number of important markets. It could squeeze out smaller rivals and saddle farmers and consumers with higher prices, reduced choice, and less innovation,” said AAI President Diana Moss.Given the merger’s potential adverse effects, the letter encourages the DOJ to be skeptical of any claims that the companies need to be bigger to innovate or that planned cuts to fundamental research will benefit farmers and consumers.The AAI-FWW-NFU analysis evaluates the effect of the merger on three major markets. One is the market for cottonseed containing genetic “traits,” where Monsanto-Bayer would have shares above 65% in several U.S. growing areas. A second includes the markets for crop traits such as herbicide tolerance, insect resistance, and others. A combined Monsanto-Bayer would hold between 58% to 97% of these markets in cotton, soybeans, and canola. A third concern outlined in the AAI-FWW-NFU letter is the effect of the merger on the market for research and development (R&D). Here, the merger would eliminate important competition between “parallel path” R&D pipelines and could reduce incentives to innovate because of less competitive pressure.The letter notes that increases in market concentration in some traited cottonseed and crop traits markets far exceed the thresholds in the antitrust agencies’ merger guidelines. The DOJ has blocked a series of recent mergers with similar effects. Such massive scale consolidation in Monsanto-Bayer would create a firm with substantial market power and leave only two firms, or a duopoly, in control of several markets.Roger Johnson, NFU’s president, pointed out that the merger is likely to affect not only the markets for genetically-modified seed, but also for important non-genetically modified, or “conventional” seed. “Farmers want and deserve choice in what they plant, with seed that is appropriate to their region and climate.” The letter notes that over time, firms have cut back on their conventional seed offerings, making it more difficult and costly for farmers to secure appropriate seed. The Monsanto-Bayer merger could exacerbate this trend.The letter suggests the DOJ should just say “no” to Monsanto-Bayer. “The DOJ must block this seed mega-merger that would raise farmers’ prices and severely limit the choices for farmers, consumers and rural communities,” said FWW Executive Director Wenonah Hauter. “The wave of mega-mergers sweeping the food and agribusiness sectors is turning over the food system to a corporate cabal that thwarts the movement to build a fair, sustainable and healthy food system.”With such a small group of firms in the industry, the task of divesting important genomics and seed assets to a buyer that could successfully maintain them would be difficult. A game of “musical chairs” among a dwindling set of market players is not a prescription for healthy, competitive agricultural input markets.
Real Madrid president Florentino encouraged as PSG face Neymar, Mbappe saleby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveReal Madrid president Florentino Perez is encouraged by PSG’s Financial Fair Play problems.AS says PSG face the need to raise €90m from player sales this year to comply with UEFA’s law.PSG were found to be €170m short of meeting their FFP obligations, but with €80m due from their Champions League participation, it now leaves a gap of €90m needing to be covered.As such, a player sale is likely so to make up the shortfall and Florentino is ready to do business for either PSG attacker of Neymar or Kylian Mbappe.Should PSG fail to meet UEFA’s deadline, they face being banned from European competition.

Ohio State Quarterback Braxton Miller ShoulderLast week, it was reported that Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller had been “fully cleared” for football activities with no limitations. Miller, who missed all of last season with a torn labrum in his shoulder, has been making very good process with his rehabilitation this offseason. He’s added some muscle and his body looks great. His arm looks pretty good, too. Here’s some footage of the two-time Big Ten MVP throwing the ball a bit this afternoon. It’s not much, but that has got to be something Ohio State fans will love to see.
MONTREAL – A U.S. court has dismissed a racketeering lawsuit launched by Resolute Forest Products against Greenpeace and other environmental groups.The United States District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed claims filed against Greenpeace, Stand.earth and individuals under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).Judge Jon Tigar wrote that the defendants’ speech “constituted the expression of opinion, or different viewpoints that [are] a vital part of our democracy.”Resolute lawyer Michael Bowe says the ruling merely requires the Montreal-based paper and forest products company (TSX:RFP) to amend within 21 days its filing to provide more details to back up its claims.In an email, he described the ruling as not a significant setback. If the amendment is dismissed, he says Resolute would appeal and expects to prevail.However, Greenpeace says it is confident such an attempt will suffer the same fate as the court’s dismissal.In a news release, Greenpeace says the ruling sends a message to corporations that “attacks on core democratic values like freedom of speech and legitimate advocacy on issues of public interest will not be tolerated.”The racketeering lawsuit was heard in California after a district court in Georgia found in May that Resolute failed to show by the $300-million lawsuit should be held in the state.
