The date of their trial is not yet known._________________________________________________________________07.24.2002The journalists were remanded in custody for 30 days when they appeared in camera on 23 July before an examining magistrate, along with an army sergeant who was accused with them. The journalists’ lawyer, Jean-Paul Biramvu, was not told of the court sitting and so was absent. He complained that he had not been given details of the charges and said the soldier, who pleaded guilty, should have been tried by a military court. The journalists filed an appeal._________________________________________________________________07.23.2002Robert Sebufirira, editor of the privately-owned weekly Umuseso, and two of the paper’s reporters, Elly MacDowell Kalisa and Godfrey Munyaneza, were arrested and jailed in Kigali on 17 and 18 July after witnessing an incident of police brutality.”Nothing appears to justify these arrests of journalists simply doing their job,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Rwandan justice minister Jean de Dieu Mucyo. “It looks like an excuse to hit once more at the newspaper and contradicts President Paul Kagame’s recent statements that the country is on the road to democracy.”He called for the immediate release of the journalists and the dropping of the charges against them. The three had been chance witnesses late on 17 July to police roughing up a man near a bar in the Kiyovu district of Kigali. Bystanders urged the journalists denounce the police behaviour in the paper. When police reinforcements arrived, the crowd, including the two reporters, was arrested Sebufirira was detained the next day after he had given a statement to police.The journalists were accused interfering with police operations, refusing to obey police orders and breaking a police walkie-talkie. The paper, which is disliked by the authorities, has decided not to publish again until the journalists are released. They are due to appear in court before 26 July for a bail hearing. The date of their trial is not yet known.Umuseso’s then-editor, Ismael Mbonigaba, was summoned by police in Kacyru on 18 May and interrogated for seven hours about an article in the paper considered insulting to President Kagame. The paper had sarcastically commented on a speech in which he had called Rwandans “idiots.” Mbonigaba was freed later that day but his passport was confiscated. He was interrogated again on 25 May and subsequently fled abroad.Kagame is on Reporters Without Borders’ worldwide list of predators of press freedom News RSF_en News Follow the news on Rwandacenter_img Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Help by sharing this information November 27, 2020 Find out more Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent February 13, 2020 Find out more August 8, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three journalists arbitrarily arrested BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist Newslast_img read more

Who wants to get rich quick?

first_imgCheating is an unpleasant word. It implies dishonesty, corruption and deceit. Cheating the system, on the other hand, is a blow for the proletariat, and it’s bound to get you a cash bonus. Vive la revolution!There are of course, moral issues here. Cheating is cheating and somewhere along the way someone is losing out. So remember, we in no way condone or promote cheating in any way. We are merely pointing out certain flaws in the system which some mean spirited individuals might find it convenient to exploit.A great place to start is your college. Unversity is an expensive place and colleges rightly recognise the need to help students financially. For those in need grants are many, varied and completely legitimate. They are also means tested, and so not available to any old student who has irresponsibly stretched the limits of theirbank manager’s kindness. However, colleges also have a strange amount of money that they are are just itching to give away to anyone, so get downloading those application forms.At Christ Church every single student is eligible for a book grant of £140. Regretting not applying there? Never fear, if in need other colleges usually have some form of bursary to help you along with your studies. Of course you’d never dream of spending this on anything other than drinks. Travel grants are equally lucrative ways of getting some cash from college. Describe the many things you think you could be given £500 to travel the world, then proceed to sit back on a beach and perhaps take a look at some of that holiday reading. Take A ChanceA risky business, it has to be said. If you have a notoriously addictive personality, or can’t predict a match result to save your life, then perhaps stay clear of this particular money-making method.  Some bookies offer a generous start-up bonus to lure in the online and real-life punters. Put in £10, for example, and a company might give you an initial bonus of £25 to bet with. Make sure you’ve perfected the art of your chosen game before embarking on a glittering gambling career and you may never make a loss. Get some practice in with the Oxford Poker SocietyShould you find yourself with a few hundred pounds cluttering up your student account, you could always play it safe and bet on a match where one team is almost certain to win. Think Brazil versus Man City. Given the pitiful odds offered by the bookies, you’ll have to risk a considerable amount of money to make a profit, but after three or four big wins you could be lunching at Quod four times a week. Become a Walking Advert It is every student’s curse to get through money at an alarmingly fast rate. Save all you want, the minute your hard-earned cash is safely deposited in the bank it seems to have vanished, with interest. Much like socks, you never seem to have enough of it.This strange state of affairs, along with battels, may go some way towards explaining why you’re already into your overdraft and feeling like a bit of extra cash to fund your newly acquired drinking habit. Of course, being a student, getting a job is completely out of the question. Working the floor of Miss Selfridge is hardly a good way to unwind after an all-nighter, and whilst you’re not exactly lazy, there’s no way you’re giving up your daily 2pm wake-up call. Not to mention the University’s cruel rules about jobs in term-time.So what on earth is a poor cash-strapped student meant to do? Starve, or worse, live off hall food all term? If scavenging the streets of Oxford isn’t quite your bag, maybe it’s time to seek some help. For the creative there are myriad ways to earn a little extra dough. In case you’re too lazy to think of them yourself, we’ve put together a guide to help you on your way. Sell your soul, sell your friends’ souls, hell, even sell their bodies. The unscrupulous are always minted. If you’re lucky, you won’t even have to get out of bed. Play the Trading GameIt may be an old trick, but there’s still an offensive amount of money to be made through ebay, and where better to start than with gig tickets? Ticket touting is a veritable industry in its own right, to the extent that the Culture Minister Tessa Jowell has hosted a series of ‘ticket touting summits’, with the aim of eradicating it entirely. Whilst Ms Jowell has branded it “the preserve of people with bulging wallets”, it’s unlikely that your average student would ever describe their own wallet in such terms. So no guilt required.The process is, of course, undeniably tedious. For outrageously popular events it could involve hours on the phone, sampling the tinny delights of ‘XXX’, or a good forty minutes of hitting ‘refresh’ on the relevant website. But should you succeed in getting the golden tickets in question, the financial reward to be reaped could be staggering. The Spice Girls Reunion Tour in January of next year, for example, has proved highly lucrative for touts, with one cheeky ebay user demanding a starting price of £800 for a pair of tickets with a £150 face value. I’ll give you a moment while you convert that into the equivalent number of bottles of Moët/handbags/tailor made suits.Unfortunately, this looks to be an industry in decline, with Glastonbury organisers already cracking down on the tout phenomenon by requiring photo ID and several lengthy forms in order to purchase festival tickets. It could only be a matter of time before this stringent method of buying tickets becomes widespread.No matter though, for there are plenty of other markets to be exploited. Snapping up new games consoles, for example, or limited edition products (think speciality I-pods, Kate Moss clothes ranges, Star Wars memorabilia) is a guaranteed bread-winner. Free Stuff More fun than actually doing anything at all to get money, is just being given it. Free money is a beautiful thing. And Oxford just happens to be full of it. OK, it’s not in note form, but you can save yourself a lot of time (which is money) by snatching up the freebies offered at some of Oxford’s many events.You need never again buy your own pens/paper/highlighters/paperclips/USB sticks/lip balm/mugs or any number of other commodities after attending a corporate careers fair. With a little bit of luck you might walk out with a job prospect. But if all else fails you can always pick up a free stress ball for when your bank balance hits rock bottom and you realize you only have £50 to last the rest of the term. Freshers’ Fair is particularly full of goodies, which include £1 Oxford tube passes, free Blackwells’ mugs and lots of eager people who want to pay you to do things. Of course, when times are desperate, there is one source of a guaranteed handout: parental visits. Turn up looking scruffy and forlorn, emphasise how little you’ve been eating. Perhaps throw in something about how expensive things are these days. A real professional won’t be wearing socks – you just can’t afford a new pair. Finally turn on the water-works and ask daddy for some cash…  Legal Loopholescenter_img Consumerism is a terrible thing. You see something, you want it, you buy it, and voila, you’re still broke. A slave to the producer, you dutifully trapse to store after store to buy useless goods you’ll never use, all because you read something, somewhere which said you had to have it. How to break this vicious cycle? A simple return to an old adage should be enlightening: ‘If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.’If you’re tired of wasting your money buying useless stuff, flog it to your friends instead and get paid. It’s amazing how far advertisers will go to get their product noticed by the right market. Offering to advertise on your blog/facebook/body can earn you a tidy sum in as much time it takes to set up a facebook group.Don’t feel like shamelessly exploiting your friends? Try promoting yourself. For men, sperm donation can be a quick fix to financial difficulty. £30 a pop, and you’re getting paid to do something routine. New legislation means that there’s always the danger of being tracked down by a mini you in twenty years’ time though, so use with caution. Less dangerously,  exploit any talent you have, particularly a musical one. Sharing it with the world can be a beautiful, and lucrative, thing. Ever wondered how much the buskers on Cornmarket earn in a Saturday afternoon? Lots. Sometimes £20 per hour or more. It’s colder than simply getting an advertiser to pay you for some e-space, but it can be more satisfying. And of course, the greater the pain, the larger the gain. Look as young as you can to exaggerate your musical skill.  All in the name of medicineIf it’s good enough for the humble guinea pig, then surely it will suffice for the penniless undergraduate. You can offer yourself up as a test subject for a range of different experiments involving different levels of risk. Comfortingly, all experiments the Psychology Department requests its students to carry out are pleasingly non-life threatening, and require relatively little effort. Adverts for these experiments frequently pop up on facebook (keep your eyes on the left hand advert bar), or are plastered on faculty and JCR noticeboards.One recent study required all participants to take a new form of anti-depressant drug for a week, after which they were examined to see if their energy levels and general happiness had increased. Each individual was then shown a series of video clips, showing images of a sexual, violent or tear-jerking nature, and their emotional responses recorded. A bizarre experience, certainly, but hopefully not a particularly painful one. Be warned – the number of experiments you can put yourself up for per year is limited, so choose carefully. Needless to say, experiments advertised by organisations other than Oxford University should be avoided at all costs. Whilst experiments conducted by our Department of Experimental Psychology are governed by the British Psychological Society guidelines, the same cannot necessarily be said for other sources. Horror stories about experiments gone horribly wrong are rare, but exist nevertheless. And in all honesty, allowing someone to inject you with a dodgy form of a rogue malaria virus doesn’t seem enormously sensible.last_img read more

Out with skimming, in with shimming?

first_img 229SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Ashley Town Ashely Town is Director of Fraud Services for CO-OP Financial Services (www.co-opfs.org), a provider of payments and financial technology to credit unions. She can be reached at ashley…. Web: https://www.co-opfs.org Details Skimming horror stories are nothing new. Tales of consumers unwittingly inserting their cards at ATMs with fraudulent technology frequently pervade headlines. Fake card inserts, keypads, and other devices have all been fitted on ATMs, giving them the look of the real deal while quietly collecting consumers’ data. Gradually, skimming devices have become smaller and smaller, making them more challenging to detect. These innovations have proved costly for credit unions and consumers alike. In 2015, ATM compromises increased 546 percent from the previous year.  Now, a new wave of skimmers threatens to cause trouble in the U.S. Called shimmers, these devices capture EMV chip card transaction data. Hidden within ATMs, shimmers are virtually undetectable. According to John Buzzard, CO-OP’s industry fraud specialist, this means shimmers have the potential to be even riskier than previous skimming iterations.“Out of sight, out of mind can also apply to shimmers,” said Buzzard. “Common indicators of skimming devices, such as dangling wires, out-of-place stickers, and unusual scratches, may not be present. This makes it far more difficult to identify shimmers.”Fraudsters place the minuscule shimming devices directly next to ATMs’ chip readers. Powered by a microprocessor and flash memory, each device is well equipped to pick up card data – including account numbers and expiration dates. The attack’s subtlety makes it highly unlikely the chip reader will even pick up a disturbance.While the data collected cannot be used to counterfeit chip cards, it can be used to make fake magnetic-stripe cards. Criminals will likely attempt to take advantage of this vulnerability by using the counterfeit cards for fraudulent purchases. Merchants who have not yet implemented EMV chip technology, in particular, may see these purchases come through.Detecting fake cards created through shimming can be relatively easy for credit unions, however. The card verification values (CVVs) on the fake cards will not match the integrated card verification values (iCVVs) of the actual chip cards. By checking the CVVs on transactions, credit unions can more quickly weed out fraud.With a presence in both Mexico and Canada already, it seems only a matter of time before shimmers start making their way to the U.S. To best prepare for this, credit unions are advised to consider taking the following steps.Conduct physical ATM examinations. Video or PIN-capture devices may be in place to accompany shimming devices. Any foreign objects should be noted and removed immediately.Implement anti-shimming equipment. ATM manufacturers may offer protective plates to help deter criminals from attaching shimmers.Reissue EMV chip cards with new numbers. Issuing chip cards with new card numbers and expiration dates also trigger new CVV and iCVV values. Even if consumers had been victimized by shimming, any captured card information would become void. Utilize fraud prevention resources. Credit unions partnering with CO-OP have access to FICO Card Alert Service (CAS). This resource helps identify skimming points of compromise involving stolen magnetic-stripe cards and PINs.The emergence of shimming technology serves as a stark reminder of how quickly fraudsters can innovate. By being agile in their ability to recognize and adapt to changing fraud trends, credit unions will be better equipped to stay one step ahead.

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

Watch for Palmer amaranth in 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As growers across the Eastern Corn Belt prepare for the 2017 growing season, one major issue that continues to be a challenge is weed control. Now is an appropriate time to make plans for control of weeds, especially aggressive, herbicide resistant species. Palmer amaranth is an aggressive plant that thrives in drought, can grow more than 2 inches a day, is resistant to multiple herbicide modes of action, and produces 100,000 or more seeds per plant. Many populations of this weed are resistant to multiple herbicide modes of action. Palmer amaranth has been observed to emerge from May through September. The key to keeping Palmer Amaranth from establishing itself is implementing management practices to effectively eliminate seed production and hinder its ability to spread.Tips for controlling Palmer amaranth 1. Scout for and identify problem weeds early. Palmer Amaranth is a pigweed species and can easily be confused with other pigweeds, such as redroot pigweed, during early growth stages. It is critical to identify weeds correctly in order to keep them from spreading. Universities such as Ohio State, Purdue, and Michigan State have excellent fact sheets with pictures to aid in weed identification.2. Start with a weed-free seedbed. Effective burndowns or deep tillage will help control Palmer Amaranth and will allow growers to begin the season with a weed-free seedbed. Apply herbicides when the seedlings are less than 4 inches tall.3. Use residual herbicides. Use of residual herbicides will control seedlings at emergence and limit the number of plants that will need to be controlled by post-emergence applications. This is especially critical in soybean fields, where effective post-emergence options are very limited 4. Crop Rotation. Rotation from soybeans to corn will allow for the use of additional herbicide modes of action (herbicides used in corn) that are effective at controlling Palmer Amaranth.5. Hand Weeding. If plants escape normal management practices, removal before they produce seeds is essential. If a seed head has formed, place a trash bag over the seed head before removing the plant from the field to eliminate the spread of seeds across the field.6. Manage drainage ditches, field borders, etc. Regularly mowing ditches, waterways, field borders, etc. will help control the spread of this weed. Although weeds growing in ditches do not directly compete with field crops, they will produce seeds and promote the spread of Palmer Amaranth.last_img read more

GitHub Open Sources Atom, The Text Editor Beginners Can Use

first_imgGitHub’s fledgling text editor is going open source. Atom is a hackable text editor for developers, designed to compete with the likes of Vim and Emacs. But unlike the latter two, Atom was only partially open source when released in February, a caveat that irked the community, to some degree. See also: GitHub’s New Atom Text Editor Is Open Source, Sort Of, Though Not ReallyChris Kelly, GitHub’s developer relations lead, said community feedback did play a role in bringing Atom to open source. “When we first released in private beta, we wanted to get feedback from the community, but we still wanted to leave our options open,” Kelly said. “In the end, we decided that open source was the best way to help it thrive and grow.”A Text Editor For BeginnersEven if you’re not a developer, you’ve probably used a text editor before. On Windows, there’s Notepad; on Mac there’s TextEdit. Developers will sometimes use these default apps as easy windows for writing code, but more often than not, they’ll use developer-specific text editors to shortcut common coding tasks. Sometimes, like with Vim, the text editor has a specific language (Vimscript) that you use to customize the editor and set up the shortcuts that work for you. Now anyone can download Atom as easily as they could any other text editor. The real question is whether they will, if they already have a preference.Up And AtomIt’d be difficult to compete with something as popular and well-loved as Vim. Instead, it’s designed to snag beginners early and convince them to stick around. It contains a GUI (Graphical User Interface) as well as a command line option, for starters. For many, GitHub is increasingly used as an introduction to the development world. Ideally, according to Atom team developer Nathan Sobo, Atom could similarly be an introduction to text editing. “Since Vim and Emacs both have their own language, beginners have to learn to program and learn the interface at the same time,” Sobo said. “We wanted to make an intuitive tool, one that’s easy to pick up, but one that you don’t outgrow once you learn more and demand more from it.” Since most text editors are pretty old (Emacs dates to the ’70s), they sometimes don’t include the features users have grown accustomed to. For instance, Nano, my Linux editor of choice, doesn’t even respond to a mouse—just arrow keys. Atom is designed to be far more approachable, to say the least.For example, even novice developers likely already know Atom’s native language: JavaScript. “Beginners are already learning to use JavaScript in the Web browser, and now we’re demonstrating to them how you can code a desktop application using the same language,” Kelly said. “It’s really exciting for a new developer to see the results right in front of them.”Now that Atom is open source, it’s easy to see how it might appeal to beginners weighing the options between it and more complicated editors. And, as these amateur developers improve, they can also contribute to the Atom community. “Our goal with Atom is to keep it free and open source so the community can grow with it,” Kelly said. “It’s a complimentary product to the main mission of GitHub—to get people collaborating.” Related Posts Why Your Company’s Tech Transformation Starts W… How AI is Learning to Play with Words Leveraging Big Data that Data Websites Should T…center_img lauren orsini These Mistakes Can Derail a Legacy Software Con… Tags:#Atom#Emacs#GitHub#Open Source#Tech for Beginners#Vim last_img read more

Nutrition and Brain Power

first_imgBy Sarah Pittman Graduate Student in Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Illinois The young adult human brain represents only 2% of body weight but requires 20% of the body’s resting energy needs, but this is not true for children. At age 10, a child’s brain represents 5-10% of body mass and consumes 1.5 times the oxygen per gram of tissue compared to an adult’s brain.1 This goes to show the importance and remarkable amount of energy the brain needs to function.1 As kids are back in school, it is important to think about what foods they should be eating to get optimum “brainpower” to be able to learn as much as they can in the classroom. Some of the most important years of brain development are in the early years of life, making nutrition during childhood so incredibly important. So what are the best “brainpower” foods? Important minerals in brain health include iron, zinc, iodine, copper and selenium help with emotions, behaviors, memory, and motor coordination.1 Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional disorder globally; affecting an estimated 2 billion people.1 Children with iron deficiency can have developmental delays and behavioral problems and have difficulty paying attention in or outside of the classroom.5   Zinc deficiency can occur if the diet lacks animal source foods or if a diet is high in maize since phytates found in maize interferes with the absorption of zinc.1 Zinc deficiency can present as stunted growth, deficits to motor development and impaired development.1,6 Although there have been mass efforts to improve iodine deficiency globally, it still remains the leading cause of preventable brain damage.1 This deficiency can cause impaired growth, infant and neonatal mortality causing detrimental neurodevelopment in fetal life, infancy and childhood.9 Important vitamins in brain health include: B vitamins, choline, and vitamin A. B vitamins are critical in brain function in that they primarily act as coenzymes in energy production, DNA/RNA synthesis, repair, and methylation, etc. Vitamin B 12 and B 9 are very important in the diet for brain function and deficiencies in childhood can result in developmental delays, neurologic problems and a diverging growth curve.3,4 Choline is incredibly important in the diet for brain development and the normal function of all cells.7,8 And, although choline deficiency is very rare, it can cause muscle damage, liver, kidney and pancreas damage and hinder the developing brain.8 Although these brain nutrients are especially important in children, it is in everyone’s best interest to eat a well-balanced diet with these and other essential vitamins and minerals! What foods do you eat that you consider “brainpower foods”? References:1. Goyal MS, Iannotti LL, Raichle ME.

Ohio State hockey captain Anthony Greco hits century mark in career games

Senior forward Anthony Greco during a game against Canisius on Nov. 13. OSU won 4-1. Credit: Courtesy of OSUWhen Ohio State senior captain Anthony Greco was notified that Friday’s game against Nebraska-Omaha would be his 100th as a Buckeye, he gave an uncommon response for a college hockey player reaching that type of milestone.“It is? Really?” he asked. “I didn’t know that.”It is actually fitting that he said that. If one sees him play, it’s clear he skates with the energy of someone stepping on the ice for his first college game.The son of Paul, a New York City firefighter, and Mary Jane, a nurse, Greco has dedicated his life to the game of hockey, leaving home at the age of 12 to attend perineal hockey powerhouse Shattuck St. Mary’s School in Faribault, Minnesota.For a kid that young to make that impactful of a decision on his life says a lot, but the now 22-year-old Greco did not mind at all.“It wasn’t tough for me at the time because I kind of just saw it as one big vacation at the time of making the decision,” Greco said. “When you get there, you realize it’s a lot different. You can’t go home to mom and dad after a game, after practice or after a day of school. It was an adjustment, but I really enjoyed the people that I met there. It definitely made me grow up a lot faster.”Following his stay at Shattuck, Greco spent time with the Waterloo Black Hawks and the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League, the top junior league in the United States.Then it was time to make his decision on where to play in college.In his second year in the league, after participating in the USHL Fall Classic, the most highly scouted event in the country attended by NCAA and NHL scouts alike, Boston University, Ohio State and St. Cloud State were among his top choices.His decision to come to OSU was based off of the loyalty of coach Steve Rohlik and his staff, as well as his desire to come to a city that has a lot to offer.“I’m from New York, so I wanted to go to a big school and be surrounded by a lot of people,” Greco said. “I don’t think in the Big Ten there’s a better city to go to with so much stuff to do.”A total of 99 games later, Greco has been through a lot. There have been many highs, but also many lows, like being a goal away from an NCAA title birth his sophomore year. Still, he has plenty of games yet to play this season.“To be able to come and play 100 games, that’s a lot of college hockey games, and he still has a lot to go,” Rohlik said. “He’s put some bricks in the wall here at Ohio State. When he leaves here, hopefully he can do something special.”After solid seasons in his freshman and sophomore years, Greco enjoyed a breakout campaign last year in which he put up a team-high 15 goals. He added eight assists for a career-high 23 points in 36 games played.So far this year, he is on pace to pass that point total after 10 games with four goals and four assists.“He brings passion and excitement to the rink every day,” fellow captain and classmate Craig Dalrymple said. “As a player, we know what he’s got, what he is going to bring every day. You see speed, you see skill, you see a guy that is going to be the first on the forecheck. As a person outside of the rink, he’s everything you could ask for. If you need him for something, he is going to be there for you.”In terms of what the future holds for Greco, he is no different than any other player who laced up the skates for the first time as a young boy, chasing the ultimate dream of playing in the NHL some day.“Everyone says that they want to play in the NHL,” Greco said. “I’m going to take the best path to get there. Whether that’s going hopefully to the American Hockey League or going over to Europe in Finland or Sweden or something along those lines, I want to play at the highest level that I’m capable of playing at and do the best I can and see where it takes me.”Greco’s 100th game is set to be played on Friday at Nebraska-Omaha. Puck-drop is scheduled for 8:07 p.m., followed by a rematch at the same time the following night. read more
