first_imgSyracuse players in a pregame huddle.YouTube/SyracuseThe Syracuse Orange were hit by the NCAA with some rough sanctions this past offseason, but unlike last year, in 2015-2016, the team will be eligible for the NCAA Tournament. Of course, they’ll need to post a better record than 18-13 to make it happen.Friday, ahead of the team’s first game of the season, Syracuse released a hype video titled #CuseMode. It features highlights of the team’s preseason games this year. Check it out:Syracuse returns a number of key contributors from last year’s squad – including Trevor Cooney, Michael Gbinije, Kaleb Joseph and Tyler Roberson.

“If Mike Trout walked into your neighborhood bar, would you recognize him?” The New Yorker’s Ben McGrath raised that question in a provocative essay last month.I’m reasonably certain that I would recognize the MLB outfielder if he walked into One Star. But McGrath’s point is well-taken. Despite being (as McGrath aptly calls him) a “once-in-a-generation talent,” Trout is relatively anonymous. Based on Google search traffic so far in 2014, Trout is only about as famous as Henrik Lundqvist, the New York Rangers goaltender. He’s one-fifth as famous as Peyton Manning — and one-twentieth as famous as LeBron James or Lionel Messi.Trout’s also much less famous than Derek Jeter, a shortstop who hit .256, with four home runs, this year.That Jeter fellow, as you may have heard, played his last baseball games Sunday. Jeter’s case for being a once-in-a-generation talent is weaker than Trout’s. Jeter never won an MVP (although he probably should have won one in 1999). He rarely led his league in any offensive category. He was one of the best baseball players for a very long time — but he was not clearly the best player at any given time. In that respect, he’s more similar to Pete Rose or Nolan Ryan or Warren Moon or Patrick Ewing or Nicklas Lidstrom — great players all — than generational talents like Peyton Manning or LeBron James or Willie Mays or Ted Williams.Jeter, however, was probably the most famous baseball player of his generation.Google Trends maintains data on Google search traffic since 2004, a period that captures the second half of Jeter’s career. Google searches aren’t a perfect proxy for popularity — as you’ll see, infamy can also get you a lot of Google traffic — but they’re a reasonably objective approximation of it.I looked up the search traffic for Jeter, along with that for every other baseball player to post at least 30 wins above replacement (WAR) from 2004 through 2014. (Jeter’s WAR, controversially, was only 31.4 during this period; about 50 players rated ahead of him.) I also included every MLB MVP winner since 2004 — along with Trout, who might finally win an MVP this year. The chart below lists everyone else’s search traffic relative to Jeter’s.Jeter leads in Google traffic. The only players within 50 percent of him are Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds and Ichiro Suzuki.Rodriguez and Bonds, of course, have made news in recent years, mostly for their use of performance-enhancing drugs. Suzuki is a better comparison, but most of his search traffic is because of his extraordinary popularity in Japan. In the United States, Jeter generated five or six times as much Google interest as Suzuki did.Otherwise, Jeter laps the field. Based on the Google numbers, he’s been about nine times as famous as his Yankee contemporary Mariano Rivera. He’s been about five times as famous as David Ortiz, another legendarily “clutch” performer. He’s been about 30 times as famous as Jimmy Rollins, a fellow East Coast shortstop and one who did win an MVP award.Jeter’s also considerably more famous than today’s best-in-a-generation players. Even in 2013 — when he was hurt and played in only 17 games — Jeter was about as popular as Trout, Clayton Kershaw and Andrew McCutchen combined, at least according to Google.Playing in New York almost certainly had something to do with this. Lots of Yankees and Mets rank high on the Google list. Robinson Cano, the former Yankee, has gotten twice as much search traffic as the Philadelphia Phillies’ Chase Utley though the two are highly similar statistically.But I hope that Trout, Kershaw, McCutchen or Bryce Harper does something extraordinary this postseason and begins to build a legend of his own. It’s not healthy for a sport when its most popular player is 40 years old. read more

Dylan Moses, an eighth-grader from Baton Rouge, La., must be an amazing talent, for the middle-schooler received a scholarship offer from the No. 1 program in the country, Alabama.The 2017 running back prospect also was offered a scholarship by LSU last summer. He and his father, Edward Moses Jr., visited the Crimson Tide campus, and the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Moses was impressed.“For Dylan, excitement spilled over,” Moses Jr. said to ESPN. “When he heard those words from coach (Nick) Saban, ‘We’re offering you,’ you could see him light up. It was shocking because we were going in thinking we were just going to get a tour of what Alabama has to offer.“To hear, ‘You’re impressive, keep your grades up, we want you to come here, and we’re offering you a scholarship now,’ I can’t even put that into words.”It’s not the first time Alabama has offered a scholarship to a younger recruit, and it doesn’t happen very often.The Tide offered current 2013 signee Tim Williams as well as 2014 ESPN Watch List running back Leonard Fournette scholarships when they were both freshmen.Still, Moses might be the first eighth-grader to receive an Alabama offer. Other schools haven’t started showing interest yet, but his father anticipates things to pick up in the spring and summer. For now, Alabama and LSU have the early advantage.“The battle for Dylan internally is who would be the best fit,” Moses Jr. said. “Right now, he’s an eighth-grader, he doesn’t have to worry about that.“We have LSU right here. They have access to us. At Alabama, we know what they have over there with the great running backs and another first-rounder on the way. Those two schools are No. 1, and everybody else is 2, 3, 4 and 5.”The offer from the Tide and the earlier offer from LSU has the 2017 phenom on top of the world, but his father knows it’s his job to keep him grounded through the recruiting process. After all, he still has four years before he signs his national letter of intent.“The attention from those levels of institutions, No. 1 and No. 2 in the SEC and arguably in the country, he feels like a boss, like he’s untouchable,” Moses Jr. said. “We have to bring him back on down to earth, let him know that he still has to do his work down here to make sure that dream comes true.” read more

After another 100-yard rushing performance, sophomore running back Carlos Hyde has proven that he should be the undisputed No. 2 running back for the Ohio State offense. I’m not someone who enjoys controversy or likes to stir it up, but in my mind, there should be no controversy. The numbers speak for themselves. With just eight more carries than junior running back Jordan Hall, Hyde has compiled 183 more yards with a team-high of 513. Hyde also has four more touchdowns than junior running back Jordan Hall. How can the coaches argue with that production? One common argument for Hall is his “big play ability.” Hall’s biggest play against Wisconsin, the last game in which he played, was a fumbled punt return that gave Wisconsin momentum and a chance to get back in the game. Maybe that is a little cynical, as he did score a touchdown in the third quarter and his final kickoff return gave the Buckeyes great field position to retake the lead for the eventual victory. However, Hall’s touchdown was from two yards out. With three inches of height and 43 more pounds packed on his frame than Hall, I would be willing to bet that Hyde could have punched it in just as easily. Also worth noting is that Hall’s longest rush of the year is 20 yards, compared to Hyde’s long of 63 yards. Is Hall really a bigger play threat than Hyde? Hyde voiced his displeasure with his spotty playing time after the Buckeyes’ victory against Illinois on Oct. 15 on Twitter saying, “Guess I’m not good enough. Take myself elsewhere.” He later (wisely) deleted the tweet and said he wasn’t going anywhere. The damage had been done, though, and his displeasure is evident. But can you blame him? Hyde is only a sophomore and would be in the Buckeye backfield for another two years. Hall, a junior, only has one more year at OSU. If Hyde were to become disgruntled and transfer elsewhere, the Buckeyes would be missing out on at least one, if not two years, of solid backfield play from the runner. Senior running back Daniel ‘Boom’ Herron voiced similar confidence in Hyde following the victory against Indiana. “(Hyde’s) got a great future ahead of him. It was really nice to see him do a great job,” Herron said. “It was great to see him take advantage of the opportunities given to him today.” Keywords: “great future” and “opportunities given to him today.” Coach Luke Fickell and the coaching staff would be wise to keep Hyde as involved in the game plan as possible this week and throughout the season to prepare for the future, as well as get the greater production. With Hall coming off of an ankle injury, Fickell said at his Tuesday press conference that “hopefully (Hall) will be able to go” but “he’ll be a little bit hesitant.” He also said that Hall will retake his position as punt and kickoff returner while the coaches find a way to move the ball around and give all the running backs opportunities to touch the football. I guarantee that given an opportunity to touch the football, Hyde will not be hesitant to take it to the Purdue defense. Put him in, coach. read more

Every weekday more than 300,000 passenger trips are taken on MTS bus and Trolley services in 10 cities and the county. In FY 2017, MTS served more than 88 million riders. Posted: May 10, 2018 KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Metropolitan Transit System has announced that their Board of Directors has unanimously approved the purchase of six electric buses. The press release can be read below:In continued efforts to reduce carbon emissions in San Diego, the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) Board of Directors unanimously approved the purchase of six (6) 40-foot electric buses from New Flyer and options to purchase nine depot chargers. The total cost is estimated to be $6 million and the buses are expected to arrive in mid-summer 2019.“This is a major milestone for MTS,” said MTS Board Chair Georgette Gómez. “These buses will serve as the benchmark of MTS’ zero-emissions bus pilot program and continue moving the agency toward operating the cleanest possible bus fleet.”In October 2017, the MTS Board directed staff to implement a zero-emission bus pilot program. As part of the pilot, MTS will purchase nine zero-emissions buses and use them on existing routes throughout San Diego for a period of two years.  The pilot program will allow MTS analyze vehicle performance, challenges and capabilities. Staff will analyze characteristics such as in route vs. depot charging, climate, route profiles, passenger loads, operator performance, battery capacity and more.The new electric buses will have a maximum range of 150-200 miles. The buses are equipped with 480 KW of stored energy and will be charged through individual depot chargers at MTS’ operating facility.The buses will have many modern amenities including the newest onboard video surveillance systems, enhanced wheelchair restraint systems with forward-facing safety barriers for improved safety, electric air conditioning and engine coolant systems.Six of the depot chargers will be installed at the Imperial Avenue Division as the primary operating facility for the zero-emissions bus pilot program. The three additional chargers will be installed at the other fixed route operating facilities to allow testing and provide continuity of service as the pilot program progresses.MTS has been aggressively helping San Diego and California reach climate action goals in many ways including:Transporting about 42% of passengers on a zero-emission light rail systemOperating of nearly 600 buses with clean-burning compressed natural gasPurchasing 100% renewable natural biogas for bus operationsDeploying 128 eco-friendly propane-powered buses into service that will reduce carbon emissions by 3 million pounds annuallyInstalling near-zero NOx engines into existing fixed-route busesAchieving LEED Silver status for new bus operations facilities in Chula Vista and El CajonInstalling solar power at 500 new bus shelters MTS Board approves electric bus purchase May 10, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, last_img read more

first_imgThe Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) has said the prices of rice are likely to increase by next year because of the poor rainfall this monsoon and declining stock of the staple food with the government.The government estimate of the production of Kharif rice for 2015-16 has dropped to 90.61 million tonnes from 90.86 million tonnes in 2014-15 and 91.5 million tonnes in 2013-14. However, the industry body said Kharif crop production may not be more than 89 million tonnes.”This is unlikely to be achieved due to severe deficit of rain in Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra and Karnataka and the best that could be achieved is 89 million tonnes,” PTI quoted Assocham as saying.Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra and Karnataka are Kharif rice producing states, where the process is highly dependant on the rain water, which was inadequate due to monsoon deficit in these regions.Assocham said total output of rice in India in 2015-16 is expected to be 103 million tonnes, which is less than the annual consumption of 108 million tonnes, reported Mid-Day.It said if the government does not take adequate measures in this regard, people will have to grapple with high prices of the staple food in the coming months.”Prices of rice may shoot up and reach a boiling point in the coming months as the stock of the key staple cereal is depleting fast owing to deficient rain and fall in output,” said Assocham.The stock of rice with the government is reported to have declined from 24.59 million tonnes in 2012 to 13.89 million tonnes this year. The government’s stock of the cereal is used at times of shortage.Although Assocham has warned of price rice in the coming days, officials at the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) have claimed otherwise. “Rice is cheap at present. We do not see any immediate impact on the prices of rice in the coming months, as the market is stable. Even if it increases, the impact would be minimal,” said Grain, Rice and Oilseeds Merchants’ Association (GROMA) secretary Kanji Gala.However, Assocham said the prices are likely to rise despite the stable market at present. Assocham public relations director Manju Negi said the hike could be 10-15%.”Apart from poor rainfall this year, decreasing stock in the past years will also be responsible for the price rise. Though the markets are stable now, in coming months, the scenario will change. The hike in rice prices cannot be predicted as of now. It depends upon the harvest. There can be a hike of 10-15% or even more than that,” she said.last_img read more
