The Jaguars are currently undefeated in the Horizon League with a season record of 4-0. Control in the midfield was key to the game, and the Jaguarsâ€™ defense helped give freshman Ayanna Melin her fifth shut-out of the season.Freshman midfielder Subrina Hamdan scored first for the Jaguars five minutes into the game. Following an initial score, the Jaguars and the Comets traded volleys for most of the first half. But at the 31st-minute, junior midfielderCaitlyn Delgadillo was able to control possession and score the second goal. Only eight minutes later, sophomore midfielder Larissa Hernandez passed a through ball to junior forward Emma Cavender who collided with a Comets defender. Freshman forward Natalie Scigliano followed through with a shot deflected by the Comets goalkeeper, but Hernandez was there to finish the shot into the net. The Jaguars led 3-0 at half time.Hernandezâ€™s momentum did not slow down as she scored the Jaguarsâ€™ fourth goal at the 51st-minute. Cavender assisted on a goal by team co-captain junior forward Isabel Diaz at the 60th-minute. Hernandez then assisted on a goal by freshman forward Nicole Oberhammer at the 63rd-minute. Cavender wove her way past a charging goalkeeper and a Comets defender for the Jaguarsâ€™ seventh goal at the 75th-minute. Diaz punctuated the victory at the 78th-minute by dribbling through traffic to score the Jaguarsâ€™ eighth goal.The Jaguarsâ€™ next game is on Friday, January 23, 2015, against the Bishop Conaty-Loretto Wildcats at the Glendale Sports Complex.About Alverno High SchoolAlverno High School is a Catholic, private, college preparatory school for young women dedicated to preparing them to function in a society as informed, knowledgeable persons, who have the requisite skills to make and implement mature decisions about complex problems.

March 15, 2002 Assistant Editor Regular News JQC disclosure bill finds new life Amy K. Brown Assistant EditorAfter voting down a bill to make all complaints against judges public, the House Judicial Oversight Committee returned less than a week later and unanimously passed the bill — with an amendment specifying that Judicial Qualification Commission files will become public only after the commission determines whether to file charges.The proposed committee bill was filed as HB 1981 and has been placed on the calendar for consideration by the full House. Because the measure would amend the constitution, the bill must travel through both houses, then come before voters on the November 2002 ballot before becoming law.As this News went to press, the Senate Judiciary Committee amended SJR 162 to include language identical to the House resolution. The original provisions of SJR 162, which allowed for direct gubernatorial appointment of all appellate judges with Senate confirmation and then set terms limits of 16 years for the Supreme Court, was struck.The revamped bill passed 5-1, with Sen. Skip Campbell, D-Tamarac, voting against it.As in the previous House committee meeting, JQC chair and First District Court of Appeal Judge Jim Wolf argued against the provision.“The damage you are doing to the process is unimaginable,” Wolf said. He added that the proposed amendment still does not protect the identities of those who file the complaints.“The complaining witnesses against lawyers are clients who will probably never have to see that lawyer again,” he told the committee. “The complaining witnesses we get are lawyers. . . colleagues of that judge, court personnel who have to sit in the courtroom of that judge.”According to committee Chair Larry Crow, R-Palm Harbor, the amendment will “open proceedings upon findings of no probable cause,” but allows the legislature to create a public records exemption to prevent the release of information about the initial complainant or intimate details of the case.The amendment also provides for a legislative re-examination of the issue during the next session.Rep. Jack Seiler, D-Ft. Lauderdale, said he felt comfortable opening up JQC files “after the fact,” and added, “Perhaps it will better the public’s perception.”But Wolf argued the bill is not the safest solution and suggested the committee include compromise language in the bill to publicize only a summary of the JQC files with names of complainants and witnesses removed.Crow answered, “All of the concerns of Judge Wolf can be addressed in the next legislative session.” JQC disclosure bill finds new life
Press Association The 25-year-old, who joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in a club-record deal on transfer deadline day, saw his tame first-half penalty saved against Marseille in the Champions League on Tuesday night, but then provided the perfect pass for Jack Wilshere to fire in a second goal which all but sealed a place in the knockout stages. Ozil has returned a number of subdued displays since his high-profile move three months ago. “Mesut moves well between the lines, so it is always difficult to defend against him,” the 6ft 6in defender said. “When the centre-back comes out with him, there is always space for others to go in, so he helps us create more chances. “We are playing well as a team and we should continue that in the Champions League and the Premier League.” Arsenal travel to Cardiff on Saturday aiming to consolidate their place at the top of the table. Mertesacker said: “We are on a good run and we are in a good position. We want to keep that.” However, Mertesacker – who is now an integral part of the defence after initially struggling for consistency after he joined from Werder Bremen in August 2011 – believes the best is still to come from his fellow Germany international. “Mesut has made good progress. He is in good form and you can see that,” Mertesacker said. “He was always a threat (against Marseille) and he never gave up after the penalty that he missed. “We are very delighted with him, especially in the transition from defence to offence, when he is always a threat. “He can play the balls, he is the one who always goes deep all of the time. He is in good form and I think we will see more.” Mertesacker added: “Sometimes he looks like his head is going down, but we said at half-time that we do not care (about the missed penalty). We just go on and that is what he did.” Ozil’s arrival seemed to lift the whole club, with a renewed sense Arsene Wenger’s current crop of talent can finally come of age in 2014. The contribution of Ozil within the team, allowing the likes of Wilshere – who scored his first goal against Marseille inside the opening 30 seconds – and Aaron Ramsey more freedom, is not lost on Mertesacker. Mesut Ozil will always provide Arsenal with an extra threat to open up defences – and there is plenty more to come from the £43million man, according to team-mate Per Mertesacker.

(AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall) IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa play-by-play announcer Gary Dolphin, who was suspended last week for likening Maryland’s Bruno Fernando to “King Kong” during a game, will be reinstated after the end of the season.Hawkeye Sports Properties, the multimedia rights manager for the Hawkeyes, announced on Wednesday that Dolphin will return to cover Iowa’s spring football practice. Dolphin, who has been with Iowa since 1996, will be the Hawkeyes’ football and men’s basketball announcer again starting next season.Late in a 66-65 home loss to Maryland, Dolphin said that Fernando, a 6-foot-10, 240-pound African-American who was born in Angola, “was King Kong at the end of the game.”It was the second suspension for Dolphin this season. He sat out two games after being caught on an open microphone criticizing Iowa guard Maishe Dailey in a win over Pittsburgh in late November.___More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
It doesn’t take much to spark a memory to life, be it good or bad.The smell of acid spilt from a busted battery at a serious car accident of quietness and darkness of an intensive care unit.The look that one human being can pass on to another, that things are not right. Advertisement Be it the person that’s suffering or the person that is trying to save a life.Over the last year or so in my job as a photojournalist, I have covered the arrival of a new and very specialised piece of equipment.I watched in amazement and with nervousness as people with spinal injuries or stroke patients were carefully helped from wheelchairs or walking frames and were placed into a frame that could be fully adjusted to suit before the patient is securely strapped in.To watch someone rise from a sitting position to their feet, with the aid of this frame makes you think and appreciate how difficult a small action like standing up becomes so much more complicated with injuries of disabilities. Advertisement In our dayI still have two walking sticks at home, one of them belonged to my grandfather, Pop Coyle, who used it all of his life.The walking sticks that which belonged to my grandfather and then my Auntie B also handy for directing traffic. Photo Brian McDaid.His walking stick went everywhere with him in the car when he was driving his old red Opel Kadett, or hanging on the pew in front of him when he went to mass up until he died in 1977, in his 90th year.ModifiedThen the stick was modified and shortened when his daughter Bida Deeney needed two walking sticks to get about on. Bida, who may have been weak in body, was strong in mind.She was once the county goalkeeper for Donegal in Camogie.So, the story was often told of a pushy motorist who wouldn’t let her cross the road in front of her home one day and then had second thoughts when she left the track of her fathers walking stick on the bonnet of his beautiful BMW.For those who never meet Fr. Mark or Bida Deeney, I have inched a small clip of a video of the two of them at Fr Mark’s Golden Jubilee celebration to the priesthood, which was held in And Friary a good few years ago Passing on Miah DeeneyThen at her husbands Miah’s funeral, Bida put on a brave face and weathered her sorrow, only to suffer from a stroke at the funeral meal after at Gleneany House.Knowing that time was vital in getting medical attention, we lifted Bida, chair and all, and bundled her into my car and drove her to the hospital.Even then she was looking for us to wheel her around and leave her down to the foot of the town instead of taking her to the hospital and causing any fuss.RehabAfter a long stay in both Letterkenny General and the rehab unit across the road in St. Conal’s Hospital, Bida still believed she would be able to manage at home on her own.It worked for her mother who also suffered a stroke many years before and Bida gave up her job in the Model Bakery Shop on the High Rd to look after her wheelchair-bound mother, in the home house that was converted from a garage to have all its rooms on the ground floor.HopeA team from the rehab unit travelled down from the hospital with Bida to see if she could now manage on her own in her own home.I can still remember one of the therapists checking me up when I went to slide the back of the wheelchair around to assist Bida to make it into her sitting room.Bida Deeney (centre) with the President Mary Mc Eleese and her husband Martin also pictured are Brian McDaid, Ward sister Olive Gallagher and Ward Manager Donna Gallagher Reid. Photo By Pat HarveyThe house that Bida cared for her mother in now wasn’t suitable for Bida to manage on her own.It was hard for a strong-willed person like Bida to accept, but in the long term it was for the best and Bida was lucky to get the specialised care she needed in St. Josephs Hospital in Stranorlar and also was able to continue the habit of a lifetime of getting to mass every morning where the late Monsignor McDyre was a regular celebrant.Car CrashIn 2008 her brother Fr. Mark Coyle was involved in a horrific road traffic incident in which it was thought at the time he wouldn’t survive.As a fireman attending the incident, I was trying to talk to Fr Mark (my uncle) before he became unconscious. Medics at the scene thought he wouldn’t even make it as far as the hospital and sent me back in the ambulance with him to Letterkenny.At the hospital, the emergency doctor in charge advised me to start making phone calls as the team worked on him and his injuries in an effort to save his life.Fr. Mark was induced into a coma and scans of his injuries were transported by taxi to Dublin.Fr Mark Coyle who suffered serious injuries in a road traffic incident just over ten years ago . Photo By Brendan Tiny Vaughan.The specialist spinal unit at the Mater Hospital sent word from Dublin to send Fr. Mark up.Again, we were told that he might not survive the operations that they needed to do but they had no choice.After a failed attempt where they had to abandon the operation because of other breathing complications, a second attempt they had success in dealing with his C2 fracture in his spine.Fr. Marks progress was slow.Four months into his stay in ICU and the high dependance unit in the Mater Hospital word come through that he might be going to the rehabilitation unit in Dun Laoire.Sadly other complications were to ditch that possibility.For all the injuries that he had suffered in the accident, this seemed to be the blow that was to hit him the worse much like his sister Bida a few years earlier when she got word that she couldn’t manage in her own at home following her stroke.Fr. Mark who was strong in willpower and prayer tried to come to terms with the fact that his body was at the limit of what could be achieved for him.Destination DonegalThe fingerpost on his journey to recovery change from Dun Laoire and pointed to Donegal and Letterkenny and the thought of getting home boosted his flattened batteries.The sun blinded him the day he arrived back to the ward in Letterkenny General Hospital, I went to pull the curtains and I was stopped in my tracks, leave them Fr. Mark suggested.I never thought I would see my home town again or the chapel spire so I’ll suffer a bit of sun in my eyes.The rehab unit and the staff got Fr. Mark back on his feet, one of them even took a fishing rod into work with them and had the man who loved fishing casting a line out into the gardenMaden vogueAn electric wheelchair was made to fit the dimensions of the elevator in Ards Friary, but we didn’t factor in my uncle’s enthusiasm to operate the new electric-powered wheelchair, resulting in him parking his chair on top of my foot as we took the elevator to a new development in his rehabilitation journey.Padre PioOn the first evening, Fr Mark celebrated mass from his wheelchair in Ards a well-wisher come up to him after the service to wish him well and also for to get him to bless a few things that had bought in the shop.One of them was a Padre Pio fridge magnet, somehow they doubled up as an immobiliser disabled his wheelchair on the altar and only after searching through the instruction book did we find the wheelchairs immobiliser to reverse the power of Padre Pio’s Fridge Magnet.These memories this week from over a decade were rekindled when I was asked to cover a press conference to launch the No Barriers Foundation charity ball at Castle Grove House on the 8th of June.Johnny Loughrey and his team from No Barriers Foundation as they demonstrate the robotic walking aid at Castle Grove County House Photo Brian McDaid.Money raised on the night went to support the use of a state of the art robotic technology to help spinal injury, stroke, MS and brain injury victims, amongst others, to stand up and walk.My story might be different to others that are going through an injury or illness of this type, but the work of the No Barriers team under the directorship of Johnny Loughrey has to be commended for the work they are doing and plan to do if their fundraising evening is a success.Happy Motoring Folks.No Barriers announce unmissable summer charity ballDD Motoring: Road to recovery was last modified: May 9th, 2019 by Brian McDaidShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
SAN JOSE — Martin Jones’ preseason numbers were not pretty. Neither was his season-opening start against the Anaheim Ducks.But searching for any concern about Jones and his so-so play so far inside the Sharks’ dressing room right now is pointless.History shows he’ll bounce back.“One of the great things about him is he always responds well to that type of situation,” Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said. “He has an off night, it’s almost money in the bank that the next time out, he’s really …
Imagine Sipping a Cosmopolitan sitting inside the school library. Or having a pizza in the laboratory. Well, if school spells fun for you and if you are one of those adults who still fantasise about school, heading to Cafe Ludus might just hit the rewind button for you. While concept cafes and restaurants are an age-old concept, this one, with its cafeterias and libraries (complete with shelves and old radios and magazines on hangers) and an open terrace was actually quite interesting. Adding to the quirky factor is the menu card. Every page has some doodle or food-related graphic, making ‘visual’ that much more interesting. However, Cafe Ludus needs to work on the lighting — it is quite dim in most places. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’They have a separate section for an ‘all-day breakfast’, may be for PLUs who combine a lot of meals together and still want to ‘have breakfast’. Hmmmm, now that’s a thought. The cuisine is mostly comfort and cafe style. So you have your usual pizzas and pastas, paninis and risottos. A lot of the dishes have been given Greek names to go with the concept. However, ordering will not be a tall task because the menu clearly specifies what each dish is made of. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe food here is good. I liked most dishes that I ordered so I will suggest that you can take your pick according to your preferences when you visit. The portions are good and can be shared by 2-3 people. The lack of an alcohol license is a spoiler but that should be in place soon. Till then, enjoy the mocktails. Hey pssst!
