Facebook Twitter Google+ Louisville was nearing a 17-minute scoring drought, with no answers for the Syracuse offensive onslaught.The Orange players came out and fully executed Gary Gait’s game plan. Earlier in the week Gait said the balance on offense needed to propel the Orange past Louisville. His players did just that, displaying a wide array of scoring threats en route to a 19-7 win over Cardinals in front of 630 in the Carrier Dome.Headed into the half, the Cards were down 12-3. Syracuse was outshooting Louisville 22-to-10. Six minutes into the second half No. 6 Syracuse already had eight scorers on the board.“We started out slow on the shooting,” said head coach Gary Gait, “but the hustle on the play and the sharpness was there.With the big lead midway through, the Orange came back out still focused. Gait credits the team for managing its the mental lapses to dominate the early minutes of the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOnly shooting 12 shots in the second half, the offense came out clicking stronger and faster as the Orange added four more goals in seven minutes to a 10-0 run.Straight out of the break, Amy Cross, Kelly Cross and Brenna Rainone, each found the back of the net to extend the Syracuse lead to 12.“The team came out ready to play,” said Gait. “They all worked on hustle and played a great game. I was very happy with the effort.”Leading scorer Alyssa Murray already netted four goals and two assists and senior attack Michelle Tumolo was riding her best performance since the Orange played UConn at home in March.Though the senior leaders contributed heavily to the win, SU was more pleased with everyone’s involvement.“I think that’s what we’ve been missing,” Tumolo said. “Our offense hasn’t really been clicking, we’ve been getting goals but we haven’t really been doing a lot of assisting.”Six different SU players tallied assists.“That’s our game, we like to make plays,” Tumolo said. “I think that’s been helping that people have been stepping up and having confidence with the ball.”The team’s poise with the ball also helped minimize the turnovers it struggled with last weekend at Rutgers. Syracuse also dominated the draw controls against Louisville’s lead draw controller Monica Negron. She won zero faceoffs.The Cardinals tried to piece together a second-half run when Gait put in goaltender Alyssa Costantino in her return from minor injuries suffered in a car accident last Sunday.The Cardinals netted three consecutive goals against Costantino but she came up with big saves to end the run.“She’s definitely the heart of our team,” senior midfielder Bridget Daley said. “She’s so positive and it was just great to have her back.”Falling into rhythm quickly Costantino ended the game with five saves after playing for 21 minutes and 39 seconds.Through strong defense and a solid showing on offense Daley hopes the confidence the team played with today carries over as the Orange plays its next five games in the span of 10 days. Daley said this is the first game where SU actually played a solid game free of mental errors.Said Daley: “I think he (Gait) wanted us to put together a full 60 minutes and we haven’t really done that yet this year.” Comments Related Stories Despite tough Louisville defense, Tumolo paces Syracuse with stellar performance Published on April 12, 2013 at 11:46 pm Contact Melissa: [email protected]
The two teams played an exhibition set of games in Fort St. John back in October with the Flyers winning both games.Saturday’s game starts at 8:00 p.m. and the rematch on Sunday is slated to begin at 1:30 p.m.Representatives from the Fort Nelson Yeti will attend the North Peace Hockey League’s spring meeting and put forward another proposal for joining the league. Their previous proposal to join the league was denied due to concerns over travel time. If that proposal fails, the Yeti will then turn their attention to another league or remain playing as an independent team. A date for the spring meeting has not been set yet.- Advertisement –
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While the inclusion of changes to the Current Agricultural Use Value formula in the new state budget is cause for celebration in agriculture, there were a number of other ag-related components in the budget. Some were less favorable.Gov. John Kasich signed the budget in late June. It was a tight budget year and Ohio’s agricultural interests did suffer some cuts, including funding for the Ohio State University College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. CFAES was hoping for an originally proposed appropriation of $24,061,355 in fiscal years 2018 and 2019 to help fund expanding responsibilities for water quality and rising costs for 4-H, said Adam Ward, CFAES director of government affairs.“The Senate Finance Committee version of the bill removed mandates inserted by the House version. When doing so, the Senate also cut the appropriation by $134,244 in Fiscal Year 2018 and $141,136 in Fiscal Year 2019 and the additional $7,000 in each fiscal year for expenses related to the [4-H] clubs. The result is a cut to Extension and 4-H,” said Adam Ward, CFAES director of government affairs. “Looking back, Extension funding continues to take a little bit of a hit. We are actively advocating to do more in the way of 4-H and nutrient stewardship outreach through our agricultural and natural resource folks and serve the community in many ways.”As the roles and responsibilities of Extension continue to expand and evolve, more has been done with less.“Extension is being asked to do more on the water quality front. Over the last few years we have partnered with other organizations to help sign up farmers to be educated in fertilizer and nutrient management and we’ve been working with the state to help farmers be compliant with the law,” Ward said. “There are required background checks for 4-H volunteers and that has been something that the university and Extension has covered over the years. Extension is also involved in this opioid crises as we look at the mission to deliver the resources of the university to all 88 counties of the state.”While the role of Extension has continued to expand, Ward points out that funding levels have not kept pace. In 2001, for example, the Ohio State University CFAES funding was at $27,431,440 and for 2017 the funding level was $24,309,491. The 2018 funding level is $23,968,942 and it is $23,962,050 for 2019.Jenna Beadle, director of state policy for Ohio Farm Bureau, anticipated some of the cuts.“We knew it was going to be a lean year. There were a lot of projected shortfalls that ended up being a reality and a lot of areas ended up taking cuts. OSU Extension was one of those cuts. We will continue to work with OSU Extension because they are trying to provide the same quality of programs with less funding,” Beadle said. “We were most concerned with the Soil and Water Conservation District cut that took place. They lost about 23% in the governor’s introduced budget. We will be sitting down with Soil and Water to talk about how we can continue partnering with them because they are the boots on the ground when it comes to water quality efforts.”Beadle, though, also points to numerous positives for Ohio agriculture in the budget.“The budget did a lot for the opioid crisis. That has a huge impact on everyone across the state. The budget sets up a medication assisted treatment drug court program in many counties for people who are dependent on opioids, or alcohol or both,” she said. “There is around $176 million in the budget for addiction treatment. We were happy the state took an active role in addressing this crisis because it impacts all of Ohio.”There were several positive education components to the budget as well.“We had some victories in agriculture education. There was an amendment we were able to secure in the budget that would protect the current relationship between the Ohio FFA Association and the Ohio Department of Education. The FFA currently operates within the Department of Education and we want to ensure that continues. We supported an amendment to outline that relationship in statute and that was successfully included in the budget,” Beadle said. “There was also a provision introduced in the governor’s budget that we were very supportive of. It allows a school district to integrate content from one state approved course to another and it specifically included career tech courses. Students can receive dual credit for those subjects covered in the integrated class. That was a big victory.“There has also been a long-standing requirement that joint vocational school districts have to use 75% of their career tech funding for programs and up to 25% on staff and personnel, which OFBF has supported. The requirement was removed at one point in the budget process, but we were successful in having it reinstated.”OFBF policy supported an exemption for apple syrup and apple butter producers from food processing and retail standards if they directly harvest at least 75% of their apples used to produce those products that was included in the budget. OFBF also addressed budget language from the Environmental Protection Agency.“We worked collaboratively with American Farm Bureau staff and the Ohio EPA and successfully changed language in the governor’s budget. The changes we made were to prevent U.S. EPA from obtaining control over the state Total Maximum Daily Load implementation plan,” Beadle said. “Those changes were included in the budget.”In addition, the Ohio Soybean Association successfully created an Ohio soybean checkoff program that was included in the budget. This provision only goes into effect if the national checkoff program that is currently in place would cease to function.Overall, while far from perfect, Beadle said the Ohio Farm Bureau was generally pleased with the 2018-2019 State Budget.“The combination of CAUV reform and some of these victories made it a pretty favorable budget for us,” Beadle said.

Brad speaks regularly at industry events such as ISACA conferences, and he is a member of AICPA’s Trust Information Integrity Task Force. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Follow the Puck Thanks to the prevalence of bring-your-own-device programs and increasing reliance on mobile work, the need for high-quality mobile device management is higher than ever. To meet this demand, company leaders must understand what comprises a good Mobile Device Management (MDM) strategy and a 4-step guide to mobile device management — how to implement one effectively.Today’s employees love their smartphones, but not all of them are eager to use personal devices at work. Concerns about data privacy make many workers leery about handing over access to their employers. Evolving reliance on cloud technology multiplies points of access, too, which further complicates the issue.The “bring your own device,” (BYOD) culture will continue to expand, which means companies must find the balance between privacy and safety.One recent report found that the BYOD market will hit a compound annual growth rate of more than 17 percent by 2023. Businesses need to implement smart, scalable MDM strategies to keep their operations protected and powerful.For many companies, that task is too big to manage alone. Employee concerns, data protection, cloud technology familiarity, and other MDM issues all require a full staff to manage them. To thrive in a rapidly evolving MDM space, organizations are turning to MDM partner companies to manage their business needs and compliance challenges. These partners provide significant help to companies looking for guidance and clarity in a BYOD-driven world.To get the most from your MDM partnership, keep your employees happy. You’ll also want to fulfill the needs of your business as it grows — so follow this four-step guide on MDM mastery:1. Establish an acceptable use policy.Every device that accesses company data must pass muster. Create and establish an acceptable use policy to set the foundation for mobile device use at your business. This policy will set the foundation for the way your company handles everything from new device onboarding to employee departures.A good policy should outline parameters such as encryption, passwords, and device lock. You will want to impliment a detailed BYOD plan that provides guidelines for using personal devices at work. With 85 percent of companies now embracing BYOD plans and employees increasingly concerned about their privacy — acceptable use policies protect and reassure everyone involved. Reinforce this policy through security awareness programs as part of creating a culture of security at your organization.2. Choose the right applications.Choose applications that are easy to use and helpful to the company. For example, some applications store data locally on the device while others do not. Working inside the cloud provides employees access to countless applications, so be judicious when assessing your options. Err on the side of caution, and use only applications that provide essential benefits to your business.Using too many apps can lead to forgotten passwords and IT headaches — not to mention security concerns from an abundance of access points. Thirty percent of enterprises think security is the most prominent obstacle to BYOD adoption — and app selection is a critical component of maintaining data security.3. Restrict access to settings.Employees don’t need access to everything. Excessive access can lead to data breaches, unintentional and otherwise, and breaches grow costlier every year. Kaspersky found that the average cost of a data breach at a small business spiked from $88,000 in 2017 to $120,000 in 2018.Working online in shared workspaces creates opportunities for information loss or misuse. Sadly, only 56 percent of companies have the power to employ key tactics like remote wipes of sensitive data.When working in the cloud, restrict access to shared application settings to keep the system safe. Access restrictions protect companies from malicious acts and accidents alike. Only a few users need master access, depending on the size of the company and the practicality of implementation, so make exceptions for tight security only on a need-to-use basis.4. Find an MDM service to fit your needs.Many MDM services can help you manage your mobile devices. Depending on the operations of your company and the services you require, your options for MDM partners may vary. Conduct thorough research on potential candidates to find the best one for your organization.The right partner should make it easy for you to stay compliant on information security issues, such as tracking devices and maintaining updates. Your MDM service should empower your company and protect it. In a cloud environment, endpoint management should complement your MDM, which can detect suspicious authentication from devices, enforce multifactor authentication, detect malware, and detect suspicious ingress and egress activity.Most MDM services work by installing a bit of software on user devices. This software can handle everything the business needs, but companies should be mindful when implementing MDM services with BYOD populations. Many employees might be leery of allowing an MDM solution on their personal devices. Consider employee sentiment, and be prepared to answer questions about privacy before moving forward with a new service.Reliance on cloud technology and the prevalence of smartphones will only grow stronger in the years ahead. To operate effectively in this environment, take the precautions outlined in this guide and work with employees and your vendor to keep your company and information safe. The challenges of mobile device management will continue to evolve, but with the right mindset, tools, and partners, you can stay ahead of the curve and keep your business safe.

The Canadian Press OTTAWA – The Supreme Court of Canada will look at the process used to determine compensation for former residential school students.The high court has agreed to hear the appeal of an Indigenous man – known only as J.W. due to privacy considerations – who claims he was sexually assaulted by a nun while attending a residential school in Manitoba.At issue is whether the decisions of adjudicators in such cases can be reviewed by the courts.For over a century, tens of thousands of Indigenous children were required to attend residential schools, primarily run by religious institutions and funded by the federal government.Students were not allowed to use their languages or cultural practices.Former pupils provided accounts of physical, sexual and emotional abuse as part of an independent assessment process to determine compensation _ a program that flowed from a major 2006 settlement agreement aimed at ensuring a lasting resolution of the residential schools legacy.J.W.’s claim was rejected by an adjudicator on the grounds that he had failed to show the nun’s alleged act – grabbing his penis while he was in line for a shower – had a “sexual purpose.”His efforts to have the decision overturned by other adjudicators failed.However, a Manitoba judge found fault with the internal reviews and sent the case back to the initial adjudication phase.The federal government successfully challenged the judge’s decision in the Manitoba Court of Appeal, which ruled that, under the terms of the independent assessment process, there can be no judicial review of adjudication decisions.As usual, the Supreme Court gave no reasons for agreeing to hear J.W.’s case.
BEIJING — Most Asian stock markets gained Thursday after Wall Street fell and Britain’s Cabinet endorsed a draft agreement to leave the European Union.KEEPING SCORE: The Shanghai Composite Index rose 1 per cent to 2,659.12 and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng added 1 per cent to 25,907.26. Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 shed 0.2 per cent to 21,803.62 and Seoul’s Kospi advanced 0.4 per cent to 2,077.41. Sydney’s S&P-ASX 200 added 3 points to 5,736.00. India’s Sensex rose 0.4 per cent to 35,286.91. Bangkok and New Zealand retreated while Taiwan and other Southeast Asian markets rose.WALL STREET: U.S. markets were dragged down by losses for tech companies, banks and insurers. Apple Inc. lost 2.8 per cent. Bond prices rose as traders shifted money into low-risk assets. That pulled yields down, which hurts banks by driving interest rates on loans lower. Energy stocks rebounded as crude oil prices snapped a 12-day losing streak. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 0.8 per cent to 2,701.58. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0.8 per cent to 25,080.50. The Nasdaq composite dropped 0.9 per cent to 7,136.39.BREXIT: Prime Minister Theresa May persuaded the British Cabinet to back an agreement to separate from the European Union, triggering the final steps toward Brexit. May said the decision is a “decisive step” toward finalizing the exit deal with the EU within days, though it was unclear whether Parliament will go along. The deal would allow Britain to stay in a customs union, bound by EU rules, while the two sides negotiate a trade treaty. EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said the two sides agreed to avoid a “hard border” between Ireland, a member of the trade bloc, and Northern Ireland.ANALYST’S TAKE: “Despite the U.K. Cabinet backing the new Brexit draft plan, the boost for markets had been short-lived with the sea of worries overruling sentiment,” said Jingyi Pan of IG in a report. Asian markets are “taking after the poor leads from Wall Street” due to “little data” due out in the region.AUSTRALIAN JOBS: Government data showed employment rose by 32,800 in October, above market expectations for a gain of 20,000.
