Bulldog Top 10 Of 2015-16: No. 2 – Women’s Soccer Wins MVC Title

first_imgLater in the second period, Rodgers secured her second multiple-goal game of the season at the 57-minute mark (57:04). Drake capitalized on a turnover by Missouri State as sophomore defender Ali Smith stole the ball and passed it to Rodgers who got behind the Bears’ defense as she chipped a shot over the head of Missouri State goalie Jessica Perry to put the Bulldogs up 2-0. The No. 2 moment of 2015-16 comes from the women’s soccer team on Oct. 24 when the Bulldogs clinched the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference regular season title with its 2-0 win at Missouri State on Saturday afternoon. Junior midfielder Rebecca Rodgers scored a pair of goals for Drake as the Bulldogs won their first MVC regular season title since the 2006 season. “Kayla and Becca (Rodgers) didn’t have loads of opportunities, but they were clearly impact players for us,” Horner said. “Becca is a game changer as we’ve won every league game she’s scored in.” Smith earned her second assist of the season on the goal as Rodgers has a conference-leading nine goals. Rodgers has scored 26 career goals, which ranks tied for second in program history with former standout Sara Foote (2004-07). Andrea Schmitz (2002-5) has the top mark with 32 career goals. The 2015-16 season featured many thrilling moments and accomplishments for Drake athletics. From conference titles, outstanding team and individual accomplishments, postseason appearances and significant regular season victories, the Bulldogs had plenty to celebrate as they look forward to the upcoming season. Before embarking on 2016-17, www.GoDrakeBulldogs.com will take a look back at the top 10 moments of the 2015-16 throughout the months of July and August.

Everyone filled their role today and did so at a high level. Our midfield got better as the game went on and our backs dealt with their attack quite well even when they threw numbers forward at the end.” Rodgers scored her first goal at the 35-minute mark (35:12) in the first half with a header off a corner kick by junior midfielder Kayla Armstrong. Armstrong has a team-high four assists. “We had a trying start to our season, but our players gained knowledge and experience that helped us go undefeated in the league and for that I give them a lot of credit,” Horner said of her team. “It could have been easy to lose belief when we fell short but the chemistry and make up of our team got stronger. We look forward to getting some rest and then preparing for the MVC Tournament.” Drake and Missouri State finished with five shots and four shots, respectively in the first half. Bulldog junior goalie Brooke Dennis tallied two saves in the half. Dennis finished with six key saves in the second half and eight in the contest as the Drake defense secured its second shutout of the year.last_img read more

Kaepernick doll that ‘hung’ in Northern California barber shop removed

first_imgA Placerville barber has realized the err of his ways and removed a doll of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick that had been hanging in a noose from his ceiling for two years.“I literally had no idea that I was offending people,” the tonsorial artist, who goes by Bowtie Barber, told FOX40 in Sacramento. “We have a hangman out here called George and so, you know, with the theme of hangtown I hung him.

Body Wonders You Didn’t Know You Had

first_img(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 We have some really advanced equipment running inside us.Here are cool body facts for sharing around the water cooler. Read the links for details.Repair crew: There are cavities in your organs with immune cells at the ready for fast tissue repair, Science Daily says.A new sense: We all know about the sense of touch, and some of us have heard about the proprioceptive sense that lets us know our position in space. Current Biology tells about a “novel proprioceptive sense” due to fingertip contact area. Whenever the contact area changes, we receive informational cues about finger displacement.Another new sense: PNAS takes the sense of touch to another level. Robot designers need to think about this one: the vibrations we feel when touching an object are loaded with information.Using the human hand as a case in point, we show that during natural interactions with ordinary objects, mechanical energy originating at finger contact propagates through the whole hand, and that vibration signals that are captured remotely contain sufficient information to discriminate between gestures and between the touched objects.Milk woman: Human breast milk has unique properties. Science Daily says it helps populate the infant’s gut with healthy flora. It’s like a “miracle,” Medical Xpress says, how breast cells work like little factories to produce this amazing fluid so beneficial to the newborn in multiple ways.Epigenetic memory: The environment can trigger switches to help our bodies remember, Science Daily says. These on/off switch positions are heritable, so that the next generation can be prepared for stressful situations.Custom facial: Skeletal stem cells lay the foundation for development of the human face. “Timing is everything when it comes to the development of the vertebrate face,” Science Daily says. ‘In a new study, researchers have identified the roles of key molecular signals that control this critical timing.”Brain password: To protect the brain, there is a blood-brain barrier most substances cannot cross. There’s a molecular transporter, however, that can get things like essential lipids through with proper authentication. Another article on Science Daily describes how the gatekeeper system is becoming better understood.Night watch: Ever have trouble sleeping in a new place? That’s because half your brain is awake, New Scientist says. Some animals like dolphins and birds sleep with half their brain awake at a time to stand watch; “something similar might be going on in our brains when we’re in an unfamiliar environment.”The default mode network is involved in mind wandering and thinking about future events. It is spread across the brain, but it seems like only the part located in the left hemisphere may be acting as a “night watch”, monitoring conditions around us and alerting us to potential danger.Unmentionable essentials: Our “unbecoming” body parts are no less well designed than any other. We don’t pay them much respect till things go wrong. How does your brain know when your bladder is full? Science Daily says this “seemingly simple” process actually requires dedicated sensors, signal transduction mechanisms and specialized muscle contractions. The anus, too, is often the butt of jokes, but thank God it works to keep the crap sealed inside till it’s time to go. That anal sphincter muscle has an important job, as anyone knows who has been a caregiver for one with incontinence. A paper in Nature Communications describes the “molecular basis of the genesis of basal tone in internal anal sphincter,” meaning that the muscle needs to maintain a default tension to keep a seal, so that you smell nice in the business meeting. Control of that basal tone goes all the way down to particular molecular machines in the muscle cells. Scientists found that disrupting them either led to incontinence or impaired defecation.Maybe that last one is not a water cooler topic, but it’s good to know that every detail of our design is well thought out. The more details you know about your earthly tabernacle, the more you should be thankful. That’s a good reason right there to do scientific investigation. Thankfulness is healthy (and right). We, of all generations, having the most knowledge of God’s provisions for our bodies, should be the most grateful.last_img read more

Breaking News Online: The iPhone App is Live & Worth Buying

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Tags:#mobile#news#NYT#web Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces marshall kirkpatrick Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img News junkies rejoice, the much anticipated iPhone app from Dutch 19 year old Michael van Poppel’s scrappy and wildly popular international reporting network Breaking News Online (BNO) has been released (iTunes link). The app uses the iPhone’s new push notification service to deliver important news updates from around the world to your phone with some control over priority levels and a delivery shut-off time scheduling option. It isn’t perfect, but is it worth two bucks to get important world news updates pushed automatically to your phone? You bet it is. We wrote last month about van Poppel’s ambitious project and bizarre story. He’s gone from selling a mysterious tape of Osama Bin Laden to a news agency when he was 17 to now running a small, Twitter-centric network of reporters around the world – aggregating breaking news and doing original reporting faster than nearly anyone else on the web. Now you can get the group’s output pushed to you automatically. It’s a smart move and one that BNO says readers have been requesting loudly.The app is a stream of very short news updates, some with links but most without. Not all notices are marked for push notification, but you can turn on push for low priority messages. In the last two hours, for example, BNO has pushed out eight news updates and five of them have been marked high priority. Three were about an unusually intense wave of earthquakes off the coast of Mexico, which seems like pretty high priority. Both the official news updates and the team’s personal Twitter updates demonstrate that the network is made up of humanitarians. Audio notifications can be turned on or off and you can set times during which messages aren’t delivered. That’s nice. We’d really like to see other services offer this kind of functionality for more niche news topics, or RSS feeds of our selection.BNO isn’t the only news app that uses the new push notification, but it does appear to be the most prolific. The Associated Press app, for example, seldom pushes out more than a few notices in an entire week. The BNO app isn’t super polished or complex; it isn’t a good way to read in-depth news, but it is very fast and quite well-suited to the modern news addict. It’s well worth the $1.99 price tag.Update: Andrew Nystrom from the LA Times leaves a very interesting comment below reminding us of this app’s plan to charge a monthly $1 subscription fee, something that was mistakenly left out of the iTunes app store description! Is the app still worth it? We have no doubt that it is. One dollar per month is a trivial fee for a mobile push connection to the freshest news on the web. Not everyone will feel that way, though.

Windows 8 Boss Sinofsky Out At Microsoft

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The shakeups keep coming in the world of tech. Two weeks ago Apple booted out Scott Forstall, who oversaw development of the iOS operating system. And now Microsoft is losing its top development boss – Steven Sinofsky, who ran Windows 8 and was perhaps the most powerful person in the company after CEO Steve Ballmer.Whether SInofsky jumped or was pushed is not clear. Microsoft says the departure was a mutual decision. President Of WindowsSinofsky’s title had been President of Windows and Windows Live. He will be replaced by Julie Larson-Green, a veteran Microsoft executive who most recently has been overseeing user interface design. That’s been a big project at Microsoft which is trying to unify all of its products and platforms – Windows, Windows Phone and even the Xbox — with a tile-based interface that used to be known as Metro.Sinofsky, meanwhile, is known to be an abrasive, polarizing figure with an outsized ego – much like Forstall, who was so obnoxious that some people quit Apple rather than work with him, while others, including two top executives, refused to sit in meetings with him unless CEO Tim Cook was present.I heard earlier this year that Sinofsky and Ballmer had been butting heads. Sinofsky became a hero inside Microsoft for driving development of Windows 7, which rescued Microsoft from the mess that was Windows Vista. Word is he had become so powerful inside the company that supposedly he had stopped listening to Ballmer, and simply did whatever he wanted to do.Sinofsky’s departure comes just two weeks after Microsoft introduced its long-awaited Windows 8 operating system and its Surface tablet, both of which have been receiving tepid reviews.Job Done, Job Gone?My guess, looking in from the outside, is that Ballmer decided to get rid of Sinofsky a while ago, and told him to finish up WIndows 8 and then get out.Microsoft is a leaky enough place that we’ll probably get the true story, or perhaps several versions of it, in the not-too-distant future.For now we must make do with a press release from Microsoft in which Ballmer says the goal of the shakeup is to make sure that Microsoft can “continue to drive alignment across all Microsoft teams, and have more integrated and rapid development cycle for our offerings.”Apple said similar things when it booted Forstall, talking about the need to have better collaboration across teams. The implication was that the much-loathed Forstall was an impediment to collaboration. The same may be true of Sinofsky, who nonetheless bowed out gracefully with a quote about the “blessings I have received” at Microsoft. “I am humbled by the professionalism and generosity of everyone I have had the good fortune to work with at this awesome company,” Sinofsky said in the press release.“Humble” is not a word one often heard in the same breath as “Sinofsky.” But it may be he is feeling that way right now.Image courtesy of Microsoft. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img dan lyons Tags:#Apple#Forstall#iOS#Microsoft#Sinofsky#Windows Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

Heartening to see Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah get wickets on slow pitch: Virat Kohli

first_imgIndia bounced back to win the second ODI by six wickets in Pune to level the three-match series 1-1, thanks to some thorough professional performances from Bhuvneshwar Kumar with the ball and later, Shikhar Dhawan and Dinesh Karthik with bat.India captain, Virat Kohli was all praise for the bowlers, namely Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Burmah, for their splendid opening spell. The pair cleaned up the New Zealand top-order, sharing five wickets between them.”Pretty good game for us today, exactly what we spoke at toss time. We thought the wicket will play slower during the day, and better during the evening. That’s how it was,” Kohli said at the post match presentation.”Bowlers were really clinical today and fielders as well. Both those guys are coming along nicely (Bhuvi and Bumrah),” said Kohli added.Before the start of the match, in a major expose, India Today TV caught Pune pitch curator Padnurang Salgaonkar on camera, promising a 340-run surface at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.Two of India Today’s undercover reporters, posing as bookies, caught Salgaonkar on tape. The curator assured the reporters that the pitch would yield 337 runs and the target would be easily chaseable.He also said he could tamper the pitch to suit the needs of a particular team. Soon after the sting operation aired on India Today and Aaj Tak on Wednesday morning, BCCI and MCA swung into action.”They know they’re going to start more often than not. Today, with the wicket being slow, it was heartening to see them getting wickets in conventional ways,” Kohli said. (India Today’s Operation CricketGate: Ball in ICC’s court after Pune pitch controversy)advertisementBhuvneshwar and Bumrah chipped away with regular wickets while the spinners including part-timer Kedhar Jadhav never allowed the Kiwis to build any kind of momentum, as New Zealand managed only 230/9 in their alotted 50 overs.Kohli also praised his batsmen as they stuck to their task and saw out the small total with relative ease.”Dhawan has been playing really well. He’s pretty confident at the moment. Dinesh as well, getting some crucial runs for himself as well as the team.”He now wants to shift his focus to the ODI series decider in Kanpur, saying, “I look forward to challenges. We spoke about bouncing back, and we have bounced back here today. Would look to play a similar sort of game in Kanpur as well.”last_img read more

Will develop ‘best’ Pakistan cricket team before next World Cup: Imran Khan

first_imgImran Khan, former Pakistan skipper and current Prime Minister, has said that he is working on a plan to develop “best cricket team of the world” following the dismal performance of the Men in Green in the recently concluded World Cup in England and Wales.Pakistan were knocked out in the group stage of the 2019 World Cup. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men finished fifth in the points table — at equal points (11) with New Zealand after the round-robin stage. However, the Black Caps qualified as the fourth team for the semifinals owing to better net run rate.”After the World Cup, I have decided that I will improve this Pakistan team. I am going to reform Pakistan cricket,” said Imran while addressing a gathering of Pakistani-Americans at Capital One Arena in downtown Washington DC on Sunday.”There have been a lot of disappointments. Hopefully, in the next World Cup, you will see a very professional, best Pakistan team. Remember my words,” he added.He, however, did not divulge the details about his plans for reforming Pakistan cricket.The Pakistan Prime Minister is currently on a three-day visit to the US.Also Read | Navdeep Saini, fast and furious, set to make his mark on the big stageAlso Read | Didn’t want to feel the pain and regret of losing another final: Jos ButtlerAlso See:last_img read more
