Mens Basketball Ohio State to step up after Muhammads injury

Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorNo. 16 Ohio State suffered another loss in its 72-62 loss to Syracuse on Wednesday night. Late in the second half, freshman guard Luther Muhammad took a hard fall and was escorted off the court with the help of the training staff. Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said after the game that Muhammad had suffered a shoulder dislocation. The head coach said Tuesday that he is out indefinitely and there is no timetable for his return, saying he is doubtful for the Big Ten opener against Minnesota on Sunday. “It is a significant impact, but we’ve got confidence in the next guys in the rotation being able to step up in his absence,” Holtmann said. The head coach was not sure who would take Muhammad’s place in the starting lineup, saying he is thinking about how different lineups gel together, how specific players compliment each other when on the floor together. Sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson said the loss of Muhammad is big because of his defensive ability, but the different guards on the roster are ready. “Everybody is going to be ready like I always talk about. Everybody’s been ready since June,” Wesson said. “Losing him is huge because he is one of our better defenders … so he’s a loss, but we are going to have experience coming off the bench.” But Holtmann’s first thought was not who would replace Muhammad in the starting lineup. It was on senior guard C.J. Jackson, a player who the head coach expects to step up in a major way defensively. “C.J. Jackson has to defend better than what he has through this part of the season,” Holtmann said. “He’s more capable of that than what he has shown and I think having Luther alongside him has allowed him to maybe be a little bit looser in that area. So we are going to need more because he is capable of it.”  Holtmann said he did have two guards in mind when it comes to taking more of a major role in the absence of Muhammad: redshirt senior Keyshawn Woods and freshman Duane Washington Jr. Through the first seven games of the season, both Woods and Washington have contributed consistent minutes off the bench, with the redshirt senior averaging eight points per game, shooting 45.7 percent from the floor with a team-leading 22 assists. Washington, in his first season on the team, is leading the team in 3-point shooting, connecting on 13 of 29 attempts from deep. The 13 made 3s is also tied for the team lead.Washington said he was prepared for an increased role, earning “starter’s minutes” as Holtmann said in the near future. “I’ll be ready for whatever coach needs me to do,” Washington said. “That’s what we practice every day for, that’s what workouts are for. Whatever he needs me to do, I’ll be there for it.” But Muhammad’s absence is not only about his defensive ability. Washington said Muhammad brings an emotion and a passion to the game, an energy that is not seen in every program around the country. The freshman guard said he saw it in Muhammad’s defense, clapping on defense, finding his way to the team’s best offensive player. Holtmann did not know how Muhammad’s injury would affect the spirit of the team moving forward. At this point, that was not his main focus. “Our first concern in all this is Luther’s health. It’s not by any stretch career damaging or anything along those lines,” Holtmann said. “It’s a significant injury that will need time to heal. How it affects the life of our team, I’m interested to see.” But in his absence, Washington sees himself becoming that emotional leader for Ohio State. “I definitely feel like I can help with that missing piece for however long he will be gone,” Washington said. “Hopefully he will be back soon, but most definitely.” Wesson said this was something he saw in Washington from the first time he visited Ohio State. The sophomore forward said the team was “dog tired” when Washington came, having an open gym for him and another recruit after already having a team workout and a lift. But Washington was different than other recruits, according to Wesson. “He was just like ‘pick it up.’ He was telling us ‘pick it up. Let’s play for real. I’m not trying to play if you are not playing for real.’ And we were just sitting there looking at him like, ‘This young guy don’t know what it is to play ours yet. What?’” Wesson said. “Ever since then, I just knew he’s intense, he wants to do this, he wants to be better, he wants to be great.” Washington said he used that open gym to test himself, to see of he is build to play at the college level, to play at Ohio State. With the loss of Muhammad, Washington and the rest of the roster will have to bring that energy, to “pick it up” in his absence. read more

Loadscan continues to expand in mining market

first_imgLast year, 2016, was the first year Loadscan with its Load Volume Scanner (LVS) entered the European market with sales in Germany as well as Switzerland and to RWE, the largest coal mine operator in Europe. There was also continued expansion into Australian underground mines, as well as the first full 24-hour trailer mounted solar system installed in Senegal, Africa.Loadscan started from humble beginnings when, in 1998, the first Load Volume Scanner (LVS) was developed by Wayne West in New Zealand. Initially named Tally Clerk, West wanted to solve the problem of accurately counting truckloads of materials. He developed a prototype unit which was extensively trialled at an Auckland site during the construction season, monitoring the movement of 150,000 m3 of fill material from the site in truck and trailer units. In 1999, Tally Clerk was first certified in New Zealand.Following some initial success in New Zealand, in 2006, West employed the engineer who helped develop the original product and they continued refining it and working towards trade approval in Australia. A total of eight LVS units was sold in New Zealand in 2007, this time including quarrying customers, with a further four units heading to Australia to be used in the civil construction industry. The year 2009 brought the first sale into the USA. The same year Loadscan also started working with the National Institute of Weights and Measures (NMI) in Australia to gain approval to use the LVS for trade purposes in Australia. Metrological testing was completed on the LVS components, accuracy testing was done with the NMI in New Zealand.Trade approval was gained in Australia in 2010 and in 2012 Carey West, son of the late Wayne West, took over the company and rebranded to Loadscan. Carey used to work in the construction industry in Hamilton while his father was developing the original scanning machine, and was well positioned to see what improvements could be made to the product. By 2013, Loadscan was exporting to Canada, Mexico, Mongolia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Russia, Senegal, Zambia the Philippines and Indonesia. He took the LVS system to the next level in 2014 by introducing a portable, semi-portable and fixed gantry models to best suit the customer’s application as well as extending the range of measurable load materials and truck types. LVS devices are now successfully operated on a full spectrum of truck and trailer designs including on-road truck and trailers, semi-trailers and centre-dumpers, as well as off-road articulated dumpers and quarry trucks.Loadscan continued exporting to Mongolia, Russia, Canada and the USA with Odod Gold being the first to purchase four portable LVS units and added additional ones later that year. A big breakthrough in 2015 saw Loadscan re-entering the Australian market with Fulton Hogan. The well-known construction company needed an accurate load management solution and purchased custom mount units to install into underground mines in New South Wales.last_img read more

Port of Vancouver seeks Terminal 1 development proposals

first_imgSome day, the Port of Vancouver’s Terminal 1 on the Columbia River may be every bit as fancy, parklike and mixed-use as its neighbor, The Waterfront Vancouver.El Gaucho-style fancy?That remains to be seen. Vancouver does not land a premier steakhouse every day, as it was announced Monday by the Hotel Indigo waterfront developers, now does it?But on Tuesday, the port took an important step toward securing its own riverfront renaissance, announcing it is seeking proposals from development firms interested in designing, permitting, constructing and managing a mixed-used development on a portion of the port’s 10-acre site on the river.The available property, the port said in a news release, includes two blocks on the north side of Columbia Way between the riverfront and downtown Vancouver — approximately 2 acres. The concept and vision for a mixed-use development at this property, which is in the city’s Downtown-South/Waterfront Opportunity Zone, includes office, residential, ground-floor retail and parking.“Our request for qualifications is an important step toward reinventing this remarkable waterfront property as the premier gateway to Washington state and the connection to all our community has to offer, from public trails and historic sites to distinctive shopping and restaurants,” Mike Schiller, port director of business development, said in the news release. “Terminal 1, and specifically the mixed-use development, will be vital to the ongoing revitalization of the Columbia River waterfront.”last_img read more

State OKs Flint Hills Refinery Cleanup Plan

first_imgState officials have approved a plan proposed by Flint Hills Resources-Alaska to continue an ongoing cleanup of sulfolane and other contaminants that have leaked from its North Pole refinery since the 1970s. The agreement may help improve the chances of Flint Hills eventually selling the refinery, which it closed in May.Download AudioOfficials with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation and the Department of Law announced Monday that they’d approved Flint Hills’ cleanup plan for the refinery property only. The plan does not include any cleanup outside of the refinery property line.The cleanup plan announced Monday requires Flint Hills Resources-Alaska, and potential future owners of its North Pole refinery, to continue remediating and removing contaminants from the facility. (Credit KUAC file photo)Kristin Ryan is the head of DEC’s Spill Prevention and Response Division, and she says the agreement essentially states that Flint Hills should continue to do what it’s been doing for about three years now.“It’s basically our agreement that the activities that what they are doing on-site is the right thing to do,” Ryan said.Flint Hills has been testing methods to cleanup sulfolane soon after the company announced in 2009 that it had discovered the sulfolane in groundwater outside of the refinery property. Sulfolane is an industrial solvent used in oil refining. It leaked from the refinery for years before Flint Hills bought it in 2004.The company also began providing drinking water to North Pole-area residents. And it took the refinery’s previous owner and the state to court to make the case that they share liability for the contamination.Ryan says in addition to sulfolane, Flint Hills will continue cleaning up other on-site contaminants such as benzene that have leaked from the refinery since at least the late 1970s.“It’s not just sulfolane,” she said. “In fact, a lot of the on-site recovery systems are in place to capture the benzene and the other gasoline-related spills that have happened over the years. Which is unfortunately pretty common for a refinery back in the days when they perhaps weren’t quite as careful.”Flint Hills spokesman Jeff Cook says the state’s adoption of the plan is an important step toward continuing the cleanup – and, company officials hope, eventual sale of the facility.“It is a critical step in detailing what’s expected of us, and allowing us to reposition ourselves for sale to a third party. And to continue our operation,” Cook said.Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Luke Hopkins says he’s encouraged that Flint Hills and the state have agreed to an on-site cleanup plan.“It’s a step,” he said.A step toward helping Flint Hills sell the refinery and getting it back up and running – and restoring some of the 90 jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenues that the borough and North Pole have lost due to the closure.Hopkins says he looking forward to the state moving ahead on a cleanup plan for the whole area affected by the contamination. The plume of sulfolane in the groundwater has now grown to about 3 miles long, 2-and-a-half miles wide and 300 feet deep – one of the largest contamination plumes in the state.“Any of the other actions for the large plume that out in North Pole and the borough area – many residents have that plume under their property – so we’ll have to wait and see some of the outcomes are that are offered for that,” he said.The big cleanup have to wait until after DEC Commissioner Larry Hartig issues his decision expected by the end of the year on whether to set a stringent sulfolane-cleanup level, as recommended by DEC staff, or a lesser cleanup level, favored by Flint Hills.last_img read more

US man to hike 2650 miles to fund Costa Rican shrine

first_imgTold in one sentence, the story sounds surreal: A young man hears a mystical voice in the Amazon, so he decides to walk 2,650 miles to raise money to build a stone temple in the Costa Rican rainforest, all the while carrying a crystal skull from Peru.Joe Hudson is the guy who is actually doing this. The California native spends much of his time in Costa Rica, where he owns property near Dominical on the southern Pacific coast. He’s a seasoned surfer and a professional chef. He loves the outdoors and has regularly taken multi-week hikes in U.S. national parks. He prefers not to publish his age, but Hudson is fit and upbeat and looks 10 years younger than he is. With his West Coast cadence and dreamy delivery, Hudson sounds earnest about his bizarre plan.“I always wanted to hike the Pacific Crest Trail,” recalled Hudson over Skype the other day. “But I never really had a date set on it.”Known among hikers as the PCT, the Pacific Crest Trail is a network of paths that leads from the Mexican border to British Columbia, cutting through three U.S. states and bisecting the Rocky Mountains. Already popular among long-distance hikers, the PCT became even more famous with the publication of “Wild,” Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 memoir of walking the trail alone. The full transect is a massive undertaking and requires months of physical exertion, often at high elevations.Divine Inspiration?Hudson planned to take on the PCT about a year and a half ago, but he broke his foot and had to delay the trip indefinitely. He spent some time surfing, helping a friend with his farm and cooking part-time. “I was basically putting it off,” Hudson now admits. Then, last March, Hudson decided to go to Peru, where he would visit Machu Picchu, take a boat to the Amazon, and try “plant medicine” with a local shaman. Joe Hudson (center, in red hat) poses with a group atop Machu Picchu. It was his journey to the ruined Incan city that largely inspired his dream to build a temple. Courtesy Joe HudsonWhile Hudson didn’t identify the plant in question, he was discriminating in his selection of spiritual rites: Hudson preferred an indigenous Amazonian village with an experienced, traditional shaman. He knew that the ritual might involve intense visions and emotional upheaval. Hudson was part of a group of travelers, and each responded to the ritual in different ways.“I don’t really hear things in my head or have crazy experiences,” Hudson said. “But in my head I heard two words, really loud and clear: ‘Get out.’ And I was taken aback. I was like, ‘What does that mean?’ You’re not really supposed to leave the temple during the ceremony. The temple is really protected. They don’t really recommend you go outside. So I just sat on it.”Soon after, Hudson flew to Cuzco, and when he looked through his porthole window, he saw a single snowcapped mountain poking through the blanket of clouds. Hudson has trouble describing how these events affected him exactly, but he suddenly sensed an oncoming revelation.“All of a sudden it just hit me: ‘Go hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Don’t wait,’” he recalled. “It was interesting, because this hasn’t happened to me before. Usually I’m a planner. I think things through. But this just hit me.” Courtesy Joe HudsonSet in StoneHudson says his Peru expedition had a profound effect, both on him and his companions. After seeing the ruins of Incan architecture, Hudson felt inspired to build his own stone temple on his Costa Rican plot. The result is the Pacific Crest Sun and Moon Project.“I wanted something that would last for centuries, and not just decades,” Hudson said. “My idea is to build something out of stone. I want people to say, ‘You’ve got to check out this crazy temple this Gringo built in the valley.’ We’re not just going to build it randomly. We want to make sure it lines up with celestial events. I want this temple to be a cornerstone, so that the valley can grow. I can imagine in the next five or six years, we’ll have a thriving community there.”Hudson is vague on details, but he imagines building greenhouses, creative spaces and healing centers. He wants to use alternative energy systems and sustainable infrastructure. He wants a nondenominational temple – “The word temple is used loosely” – but he has spiritual expectations for the site.To raise funds for the temple and its satellite projects, Hudson is using his PCT pilgrimage as a fundraiser. He hopes to receive pledges on a per-mile basis. “If you sponsor me at 10 cents a mile,” Hudson said, “that’s 250 bucks.” As it happens, the fundraiser has already made headway: Hudson has received pledges of 50 cents per mile from friends and fellow travelers. “Without taking one step, I’ve got about $6,000 committed. I think once I get five, six hundred miles in, people are going to see the commitment level and think about supporting. I think a lot of people won’t know me, but they’ll want to support a little micro-community in rural Costa Rica.”Hudson has garnered the support of numerous creative friends, including Carey Thompson, the artist who constructed a bamboo pyramid at the 2014 Envision Festival, among countless other projects. Thompson will help Hudson with the temple’s design. Meanwhile, Hudson’s friend Jonah Bolt, an experienced radio host and metaphysics guru, is helping to write grants for the project. His friend Vinni Perri has volunteered to drive along the PCT and resupply Hudson along the way. (Stopping for provisions burns an enormous amount of time). Finally, because Hudson will have limited access to internet while hiking the trail, his friend Caroline Palmer will document the trip through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and an official website.While the journey may seem odd to some, Hudson is accustomed to eccentric undertakings: He once built a “surf pirate ship” with a friend, and he has walked across the entire state of Montana. Yet some of his more peculiar ideas have given way to practicality: Hudson hoped to bring a walking staff crafted in Peru, as well as a crystal skull.“My original idea was to take the stick with me, but it ended up being really heavy, and the skull weighs about three pounds,” Hudson said, chuckling. “As much as my mind wanted me to, I had to face the realization that it’s all about weight.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Comedy homage, massive DJ party and other happenings around Costa Rica Here’s why you shouldn’t miss Costa Rica’s International Book Fair Artist Justin Griffin-Zúñiga receives first solo show in Costa Rica Announcing ‘News and Brews,’ a Tico Times eventlast_img read more

Experts at DC panel deny lax US border controls are to blame

first_imgRelated posts:Central American child migrant crisis ‘one of the greatest tragedies,’ says Costa Rica’s Solís Central American foreign ministers meet in Washington to lobby Obama on immigration crisis For Central America’s migrant women, life can change in a second US to grant refugee status to Central American child migrants WASHINGTON, D.C. – As the presidents and foreign ministers of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala prepare for Friday’s White House roundtable with President Barack Obama, experts here met to discuss how to stem the influx of Central American children that has overwhelmed U.S. border officials, sparking a humanitarian crisis.Rubén Zamora, El Salvador’s envoy to the United Nations, shared the podium with Doris Meissner, founder of the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute, at a July 16 panel organized by Washington’s Inter-American Dialogue.The two, speaking before a packed audience that included officials from a dozen embassies, claimed that the crisis cannot be blamed on lax border enforcement – despite the rhetoric many Republicans and even some Democrats in the U.S. Congress are spouting.“The argument that the U.S. Border Patrol is inefficient is absolutely wrong. The Border Patrol is the most efficient thing I’ve ever seen in the United States,” said Zamora, who served as El Salvador’s ambassador in Washington before being reassigned to New York earlier this year as his country’s envoy to the United Nations.“They know when the people are coming. There are 40 TV screens along one section of the Río Grande alone, and as soon as there’s movement, all of them move into focus and can detect immediately what’s coming,” Zamora said. “When I was ambassador here, I asked the immigration people how they measured that migration from El Salvador was on the increase, and they said it was because they were catching more and more people every day.”Hondurans comprise the largest group of kids (followed by Salvadorans and Guatemalans) among the nearly 58,000 unaccompanied minors who have showed up at the U.S-Mexico border since October. The presidents and foreign ministers of all three countries will press the Obama administration this week for more aid to stop the unprecedented influx.Meissner, who was commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service during the Clinton administration, said the issue of unaccompanied minors at the U.S.-Mexico border is not new.“Migration emergencies have happened before, and will happen again, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with,” she said. The problem now is that the average wait time for a child migrant to appear before a judge is 578 days. At the same time, funding for immigration enforcement programs has jumped by 300 percent in recent years, while the money available for hearings has risen by only 70 percent.“If you’re coming from Mexico or Canada, the enforcement officials can ask you questions but you can be voluntarily returned. That is not the case with other countries,” she said. “Special protections have to do with the fact that children are vulnerable. They are much less likely to understand the legal options available to them, so they cannot be returned voluntarily to their home countries in the way adult migrants can. They are also not allowed to be subjected to expedited procedures.”Meissner said that 82 percent of the kids who have crossed the border are now in the care of either parents or close relatives.“What we have on the southwestern border is young people coming to turn themselves in, not evade enforcement,” she said. “They’re coming to find an agent to bring them to a Border Patrol station so these proceedings can begin.” A protest sign greets visitors to a southern Arizona desert camp that assists Mexican and Central American migrants suffering from dehydration and other illnesses. Larry Luxner/The Tico TimesZamora suggested that the real reason the kids are coming is the dramatic rise in gang violence throughout the northern tier of Central America.“Gangs create a very serious problem on the peripheries of big cities, where they control the territory. They decide who lives and who doesn’t,” he said. “Let’s say a 12-year-old boy sees the gangs approaching him, and telling him, ‘Work for us or we’ll kill your mother.’ What’s he going to do, move to another place? Usually, these are poor people. What are the alternatives? They know they have a relative in the U.S. who is ready to accept them, so they go.”Another factor is the improving economic conditions for Central Americans who have already migrated to the United States years ago.“The father or mother has special status in the U.S., but they left their child in El Salvador. Now they have the capacity to have the kids live with them in their own home,” he said. “What father wouldn’t ask for his own child? The upward mobility of our community has created the conditions for that phenomenon.”Julio Ligorria Carballido, Guatemala’s ambassador to the United States, told The Tico Times later that the problem is not one of inadequate U.S. border enforcement.“You cannot blame this crisis on any one thing. If you speak with ambassadors from the Northern Triangle countries or Mexico, everyone will tell you we all have a shared responsibility,” he said. “But everyone has a lot to gain by resolving this.”Ligorria said that six weeks ago, Guatemala’s foreign minister, Luis Fernando Carrera Castro, became the first – and so far the only foreign minister – to visit the border during a trip to McAllen, Texas. He noted that of the nearly 58,000 unaccompanied minors who have found refuge in the U.S. since October, 12,000 are Guatemalans.“We have to look at the violence in Central America, the hunger, misery, poverty and lack of education,” he said. “These are structural problems of our society that resulted 30 years ago from the Cold War. Help us to manage the crisis, but if you really want to solve the problem, you can invest in our countries. Promote real U.S. investments in Central America, and take advantage of the lower wages. And increase cooperation to solve narco-violence and our other social problems.”Recommended: Fix the immigration crisis at its root Facebook Commentslast_img read more
