No. 18 West Florida falls to No. 3 Rollins

first_img PENSACOLA, Fla. – The No. 18 University of West Florida men’s soccer team fell to No. 3 Rollins College Friday night at the UWF Soccer Complex in part of the Marriott SpringHill Suites Invitational. The Argonauts (1-1, 0-0 GSC) are handed their first loss of the season after being held scoreless in the game. “I think it was a tale of two halves I think the first half were under a lot of pressure and we were lucky to go into the half 0-0,” said head coach Bill Elliott. “The second half, I feel like we battered them.”The Argos were outshot in the first half 8-3 but goalkeeper Stuart McCrory (Prattville, Ala./Prattville HS) kept his team in the game after stopping all of the Tars’ shots during the half. In the second half UWF dictated play and looked to take the lead early after generating multiple scoring chances and saw junior Zach Reynolds (Sanford, Fla./Seminole HS) hit the post in the half. However, the Argos couldn’t capitalize off those scoring chances and ended the night with the 1-0 loss. Rob Crowley scored the lone goal of the match when he found space on the left side of the box and put it past McCrory in the 75th minute.“Rollins is a fantastic program, well coached and a great team. So, you know you have to get all the details right, and you have to do it for 90 minutes against a team like that.”West Florida outshot their opponent 15-14, including seeing a total of 12 shots come during the second half. McCrory ended the night with eight saves during the game while Julian Grundler from Rollins earned the shutout for his team.West Florida will now face Florida Southern Sunday, Sept. 14 at 3 p.m. CT in the final game of the Marriott SpringHill Suites Invitational.For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.#ARGOS#                          Soccer Game Summary (Final)               2014 West Florida Men’s Soccer        #3 Rollins vs #18 West Florida (Sep 12, 2014 at Pensacola, Fla.) Rollins(2-1-0, 0-0-0 SSC) vs. West Florida(1-1-0, 0-0-0 GSC) Date: Sep 12, 2014  Attendance: 547 Weather: Goals by period       1  2  Tot ——————————- Rollins………….  0  1 –  1 West Florida……..  0  0 –  0  SCORING SUMMARY:  1.  74:41 RCM Rob Crowley (unassisted) Shots: Rollins 14, West Florida 15 Saves: Rollins 1 (Julian Grundler 1), West Florida 8 (Stuart McCrory 7; TEAM 1)– www.GoArgos.com –Print Friendly Version No. 18 West Florida falls to No. 3 Rollins Rollins scores late to take 1-0 victory (Photo by Emmele Photography) center_img Sharelast_img read more

Antisipasi Serangan dari Penumpang, Petugas Kereta di Jepang Dibekali Peralatan Anti Huru Hara

Belum lagi ‘gesekan’ yang terjadi antar sesama penumpang yang juga diprediksi akan meningkat.Kembali ke awal tahun 2019 kemarin, JR East juga meluncurkan peraturan baru yang diperuntukan bagi penumpang dimana mereka dilarang untuk meludahi petugas kereta. JR East menyebutkan bahwa tindakan meludah kepada petugas semacam ini memang masuk ke dalam kategori pelanggaran minor. Kendati begitu, ketidakpuasan penumpang terhadap keseluruhan sistem kereta api di Jepang kerap dilampiaskan kepada petugas.Baca Juga: Dianggap Pelanggaran Minor, di Kereta Komuter Jepang Ada Marka “Dilarang Meludahi Petugas”Tentu saja, ini merupakan tindakan yang tidak adil bagi petugas kereta yang sejatinya tidak mengetahui terlalu mendalam terkait kesalahan yang terjadi pada keseluruhan sistem kereta. Wah, jika melihat rangkaian berita ini, ternyata para pengguna kereta di Jepang masih bisa dikategorikan sebagai orang bar-bar juga ya! East Japan Railway Co. (JR East) melengkapi petugas kereta peluru mereka dengan perisai dan semprotan gas air mata yang dapat digunakan untuk menanggapi berbagai ancaman yang ditimbulkan oleh penumpang. Hal ini merupakan tanggapan atas serangan dari penumpang dengan menggunakan pisau yang terjadi di shinkansen pada bulan Juni tahun 2018 silam. Ya, kendati Jepang memiliki jaringan perkeretaapian yang sudah sangat modern, namun perilaku penumpangnya masih saja ada yang barbar seperti contoh kasus di atas.Baca Juga: Di Luar Regulasi, Manipulasi Psikologi Turut Campur Tangan di Perkeretaapian JepangSebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman japantimes.co.jp, fitur keamanan tambahan ini ditempatkan di dalam setiap gerbong kereta peluru, dengan masinis dan konduktor yang juga dilengkapi dengan penyemprot dan senter sehingga mereka dapat menghalau para penyerang ini. Jaket anti-senjata tajam dan bident (semacam senjata tajam bercabang dua) untuk menangkap penjahat juga akan disiapkan di semua halte shinkansen dan stasiun kereta konvensional besar.last_img read more

Army Corps. Extends Public Comment Period For Pebble Mine

first_imgThe Vice President of external affairs for the Pebble Limited Partnership presented the plans for a scaled back project plan for the Pebble Mine. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced today that it would allow additional time for the public to comment ahead of an environmental review of the proposed Pebble mine. Mark Hamilton, spoke at a joint luncheon of the Kenai and Soldotna chambers of commerce on Wednesday, April 4. In a release from PLP they stated that this formally begun the permitting process under the rigorous National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process and other permitting efforts associated with the project. The corps initially set a 30-day comment period, but Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources and project critics asked that the comment period be extended at least 90 to 120 days. Pebble Partnership CEO Tom Collier said the key to finding this balance was to address the primary concern of EPA and opponents of the Pebble project – size. The corps announced today an additional 60 days of comment, extending the period through June 29.last_img read more

QPR beaten by FC Groningen in final Dutch friendly

first_imgNew signing Joel Lynch featured for QPR as they were beaten 3-1 by FC Groningen in a friendly.Jay Emmanuel-Thomas netted and Cole Kpekawa scored an own goal in the final match of Rangers’ pre-season trip to the Netherlands. AdChoices广告Defender Lynch, who did not play in Friday’s game against PSV Eindhoven, has been nursing a slight hamstring problem and appeared to be in some discomfort when he was brought off six minutes into the second half.Juninho Bacuna opened the scoring on 13 minutes when he slotted in the loose ball after keeper Matt Ingram did well to deny Tom van Weert, who had managed to sneak behind Steven Caulker.The Dutch side were gifted a second goal midway through the second half when Kpekawa attempted to head the ball back to Ingram at the far post but instead found the corner of the net.Rangers, demonstrating the pressing, high-tempo style boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been keen to introduce, pulled a goal back just over a minute later.Michael Doughty collected a misplaced pass and found Emmanuel-Thomas, whose heavy touch inadvertently helped him go past the goalkeeper before he fired home.Nasser El Khayati then went close to equalising when his left-footed strike was well saved.Another Rangers summer signing, Ariel Borysiuk, came on as a second-half substitute.And a foul by the Polish midfielder led to Groningen’s third goal, with Danny Hoesen scoring with the resulting penalty. QPR: Ingram; Furlong, Caulker, Lynch (Hall 51), Kpekawa; Henry, Doughty (Borysiuk 72); Petrasso (Kakay 40), Chery (Shodipo 45), El Khayati (Grego-Cox 78); Emmanuel-Thomas (Polter 66).

Man United ‘interested’ in ‘€100m’ winger, president has asked agent to…

first_imgOn Wednesday morning, Gazzetta dello Sport sent their Napoli supporting readers on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. The story involved Lorenzo Insigne and a possible exit, with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain named as potential landing spots for the winger.At first glance, it looks like quite a serious story, with the little summary boxes next to the main text revealing that Aurelio de Laurentiis had asked Mino Raiola to try and sort out a sale, starting at €100m for his star, knowing he’d only get around €70m at most.They even go as far as saying that Insigne is of interest to Manchester United and the Ligue 1 champions, sounding like actual facts.Embed from Getty ImagesHowever, delving into the article itself, it all sounds very flimsy.When it comes to mentioning the Red Devils and PSG, Gazzetta point out this information comes from ‘far from reliable sources’, despite them running with it about a month ago, which we also covered.It’s the same journalist, writing about the same stuff he did a month ago, and he sounds as unconvinced about it all as he did back then.All in all, you have to ask, why bother writing it in the first place? All that happens is these stories get badly translated and twisted by the foreign press, therefore creating excitement when there isn’t any, all the while getting Gazzetta dello Sport’s name out th… oh, wait, yeah, now we see it.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Man United ‘most interested’ PL club in Argentine – Belief they’re…

first_imgWe absolutely hate to do this, because we don’t really believe the interest is there, but Corriere dello Sport, once again, have an article on Manchester United’s reported interest in Paulo Dybala. We’re still trying to figure out why this is even a story at all, since the player, currently on holiday after the Copa America, has yet to meet Maurizio Sarri, but it’s a story nonetheless, and it’s best we cover it before someone else finds it and twists it into something more exciting than it actually is.Once he returns to the squad, the Argentine will need to sit down with the former Chelsea manager to find out the role he’ll be used in and where he features in the pecking order, but the belief is he’ll feature as a false nine to accommodate Cristiano Ronaldo coming inside.So it’s not like anyone is pushing for him to leave, unlike the Gareth Bale situation at Real Madrid, yet Corriere dello Sport believe that while Dybala isn’t up for sale, he isn’t unsellable either, as bids of more than €80m will be considered but only after he’s sat down with Sarri.It’s explained Bayern Munich were the ones who pushed the most in recent months for the 25-year-old, but their interest has now stopped.Embed from Getty ImagesThat’s where Manchester United come in, described as the ‘most interested’ Premier League club ahead of their local rivals Manchester City and London-based Tottenham.With the transfer window closing on August 8th, that leaves them ‘little time’ to convince both Juventus and Dybala, but with ‘either Romelu Lukaku or Paul Pogba leaving’, the Red Devils ‘are starting to think about the Juventus player with growing insistence’.Considering both Bruno Fernandes and (the most recently linked) Nicolas Pépé would suit the way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to play more than the Argentina international, we aren’t really sure where this is all coming from.Someone has to be driving this story, and the only realistic conclusion we can come to is a Juventus need for a big sale.And with Joao Cancelo to Manchester City refusing to get over the line, this seems like the most ‘reasonable’ alternative.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Florida shooting survivor tells rally ‘it’s time for victims’ to change gun laws

first_imgJoe Raedle/Getty Images(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — Teen survivors of the shooting massacre at a Florida high school this week were among the speakers at a rally for firearm-safety legislation that drew a passionate, sign-waving crowd of hundreds of gun control supporters in Fort Lauderdale.Emma Gonzalez, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 students and staff were killed Wednesday, wiped tears as she urged the audience at the Saturday rally to fight for firearms restrictions to help prevent further mass shootings.After Gonzalez slammed politicians who accept contributions from the NRA, saying they should be ashamed, the crowd began loudly chanting, “Shame on you! Shame on you!”The student said she and her classmates in AP classes at the high school often debated gun control and were discussing it even as the shooting broke out Wednesday.But she like other students who spoke at the rally said the time for talk is over and now elected officials must take action or the public will.“If all our government and president can do is send thoughts and prayers then it’s time for victims to be the change we need to be,” Gonzalez said.Another student from the high school, David Hogg, urged the crowd: “Get out there and vote.”Even beyond voting, Hogg said, “Run for office.’The rally at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale was sponsored by gun-control advocacy groups such as Moms Demand Action as well as other organizations including the PTA, the League of Women Voters, Women’s March Florida and the Broward Teachers Union.Delaney Tarr, a classmate of Hogg and Gonzalez, told the rapt audience that the gun laws that allegedly allowed 19-year-old suspect Nikolas Cruz to buy an AR-15 rifle make no sense.“Because of these gun laws, people I love have died,” Tarr said. “Where’s the common sense in that? People are dying every day.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img read more

Sir Alex Ferguson admits Cristiano Ronaldo was a diver

first_imgSir Alex Ferguson, Cristiano Ronaldo’s coach at Manchester United, said at Stanford School of Business, in a discussion about leadership, that the Portuguese winger was “a diver”. “He was impressed, he wasn’t expecting this response. The Premier League is very tough. You could be a substitute, you could play in the League Cup, but if you have the level to start for Man United, nothing will hold you back.  CET Upd. at 12:57 Asked about how he convinced the then Sporting Lisbon player to sign for Man United, Ferguson explained that he promised “the best education possible” but not that he would play every week.  In reference to his transfer to Real Madrid, Ferguson added: “He wanted to go to Real Madrid, it was the dream of his lift. I told him to stay a year and then he could go with my backing. He was fantastic.”center_img The ex-United boss said Ronaldo was the best professional he has ever seen, but has “latin” flaws that he could correct with discipline – he was a “diver”. 08/12/2015 “Cristiano had no fear, the biggest players fear nothing,” explained Ferguson.
