first_imgWEST WINDSOR, N.J. – The Drake University rowing team earned a third place finish at the 2016 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship Sunday morning held on Lake Mercer. It is the highest finish for the Bulldogs at the conference championship event since the 2012 season. 3rd (7:14.954) – 2V8+ – Miranda Peterson (cox) (Duluth, Minn.), Madison Peterson (River Forrest, Ill.), Tristina Meister (Mitchell, Neb.), Alex Lueck (West Allis, Wis.), Jessica Rebischke (Lakeville, Minn.), Liz Long (Dayton, Ohio), Julie Shipley (St. Louis, Mo.), Shelley Hunter (Ontario, Calif.), Taylor Schaben (Portsmouth, Iowa) 2016 MAAC Championship – Drake Results4th (8:05.728) – V4+ – Sadie Robb (cox) (Norwood, Iowa), Elaine Fickau (Mukwonago, Wis.), Erica Thacker (Johnston, Iowa), Madeline Killian (Mendota Heights, Minn.), Elise Nikolic (Champlin, Minn.) “Our goal all year was to get to grand final (top 6) of each of the races and with the new format for the day because of the mid-morning weather forecast it came together well with our training and each boat’s chemistry,” said head coach Charlie DiSilvestro. “All of our boats were seeded in top seven so they were automatically placed in the grand final. I knew we would have a good day when the varsity 8 came out and was in the middle of things in their race and then each of the next two boats came out and did great.” The Bulldogs’ other two boats, the varsity 4+ and varsity 8+, each finished fourth in their respective races. The varsity 4+ boat had a nail bitter race with a time of 8:05.728 as it narrowly finished behind Jacksonville (8:04.797) and Marist (8:04.347), who went third and second, respectively, behind winner, Fairfield with a time of 7:55.880. The varsity 8+ boat clocked a time of 7:04.520 behind Jacksonville, Canisus and Marist. Jacksonville University won its third-consecutive MAAC women’s rowing championship with 56 points while Marist College took second with 53 points. Drake scored 44 just in front of Canisius College (43) followed by Fairfield University (40), Robert Morris University (31), Iona College (23), Stetson University (20), Sacred Heart University (14) and Manhattan College (6). Drake was led by its second varsity 8+ boat that claimed a third place finish in its race with a time of 7:14.954. The Bulldogs were edged by Jacksonville and Marist, respectively in the race. “We are ecstatic with how we did today,” DiSilvestro said. “Our seniors built the foundation of today so we are so glad to send them off with the third place finish. Our future is looking bright with the group coming back from today and with the 12 recruits we have coming in for next year.” 4th (7:04.520) – V8+ – Bri Varela (cox) (Olathe, Kan.), Sarah Frantik (Oswego, Ill.), Kayla Caldwell (St. Charles, Ill.), Gabrielle Brodek (Hampden, Maine), Sarah Larson (Watertown, S.D.), Kerstin Donat (Vilsbiburg, Germany), Kelsey Leahy (Madison, Wis.), Emily Householter (Wheaton, Ill.), Haley Abrams (Byron, Minn.)Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Mozambique leads in marine conservation

It’s the second major conservation area in the country to be declared within the last two years, after the creation of the Lake Niassa reserve in mid-2011.The proclamation came as a result of eight years’ work by the World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF) Mozambique chapter together with humanitarian agency Co-operative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (Care), academia and the country’s government.This vast area, located in the north of the country between the Nampula and Zambézia provinces, encompasses ten islands – five for Primeiras and five for Segundas – as well as mangrove forests that contain eight species, vibrant coral reefs, shrimp, fish and seabird breeding sites and seagrass ecosystems.It’s a nesting ground for sooty terns and the vulnerable dugong, and is home to five of the world’s seven marine turtle species, as well as the mysterious coelacanth. This makes it ecologically sensitive and significant.But in recent years fish stocks have dropped because of exploitation by local communities as well as commercial ventures, and unauthorised tourism was also taking its toll. Time was running out for Primeiras and Segundas, until conservation authorities stepped in to educate the community about protecting this precious natural resource.Sustainable fishing introducedThanks to fishing associations formed within communities and driven by WWF and Care, locals now understand the importance of securing their food supply and income, as well as those of generations to come.The formation of associations has also, in some cases, facilitated access to finance, which in turn has helped to start up small enterprises such as a ferry between the islands and the nearby coastal city of Angoche. One fishing association is helping its women to become more literate so that they can play a bigger role in the new set-up.Through education, by creating no-fish zones, by facilitating greater access to markets for fishing associations, and by introducing sustainable agriculture and mariculture techniques, the Primeiras and Segundas Sustainable Livelihood project has brought this natural trove back from the brink. For instance, communities have been encouraged to return accidentally captured adult turtles to the sea and to stop eating turtle eggs and meat.“We won a victory today with the declaration of Primeiras and Segundas,” said Caroline Simmonds of the WWF-US’s Coastal East Africa programme, in a statement. “The declaration is an incredible achievement for both marine conservation and the people who depend on these resources. Mozambique’s coast feeds hundreds of thousands of people.”Florêncio Marerua, country director of WWF Mozambique, added: “This is a very important step in our effort to achieve the conservation and sustainable management of Mozambique’s marine and coastal resources, as this adds a globally significant area to the network of marine protected areas along the country’s coast.”He said that the organisation was excited about the fact that the area was saved because of collaboration between citizens, NGOs, academia and government, which is reportedly still drafting management plan for the new MPA.Helping to protect the world’s oceansAccording to WWF, Primeiras and Segundas contains the most abundant, diverse and robust hard and soft coral community in the country. Other marine treasures include its underwater caverns, colourful marine life, and mangrove and seagrass plant life.Coral reefs around the world – including Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef – have come under threat from bleaching, a phenomenon that occurs when coral expel the symbiotic unicellular algae, known as zooxanthellae, that live in their tissues. This turns the coral white. It’s caused by a number of factors that include changes in salinity, bacterial infections or exposure to air, but most commonly because of changes in water temperature.However, apart from an incident in 2009, the coral in Primeiras and Segundas have escaped this threat because of cold water that wells up from the sea floor.“The proclamation is a significant contribution by Mozambique to safeguarding the future of the world’s marine environment more generally,” said John Tanzer, director of WWF’s Global Marine programme.last_img read more

*NEW*Hair Rollers PROFESSIONAL SNAP ON MAGNETIC – Take a bit of practise but worth it

first_imgThey take a bit of getting used to – no grippy parts on roller just smooth surface with a cover which u clip over. I find my hair looks smoother and more volumised than with the foam type ones. 6 large ones in pack – u may need more than one pack if u have thick hair. Im going to get another pack as im growing my hair longer. Goods received, as described. Good service the rollers are very smooth so not so easy to wrap the hair round. Prompt delivery and good value for money, but not very good if you have fine or thin hair as they just slip out. These rollers are jumbo sized and still firm. They are my new favorite rollers when i want big loose curls. With the use of these rollers my hair retains the big curl. Reviews from purchasers :Great size. Okay, but beware of snags Posted on March 5, 2019Author Nathalie DuboisCategories Rollers Really good, i have really thick hair which never holds in rollers but these work well. No looking for grips either. So super jumbo large exactly what i wanted in terms of size and material, plastic won’t absorb oils from my hair like foam ones do. But crudely molded, leaving some flashing (rough/jagged bits) which i may need to file down to make sure my hair doesn’t snag on them. Just needs to be a smoother finish then you would get 5 stars. I have fine hair but a lot of it, so found this to be a very good product (although can imagine not great for very fine hair as they do tend to slide out on occasion). Took a bit of getting used to but have already noticed a vast difference in less hair damage/loss from when i used to use velcro rollers that gave the volume i wanted but pulled at my hair and some times made it frizzy. Bought to do hair naturally. Lots of hair so bought two packs. I actually ordered a second pack of these as i was so impressed. I the past i used the velcro grip type roller and u wanted something more secure, these fitted the bill. Be sure to hold the end in securely when warping hair around the smooth barrel , then pop the cover on and your set. I like that my hair doesn’t get mangled up anymore when i take them out, you just left with lovely smooth bouncy hair. Item received in a timely manner and is as described. Thank you very much, i have shoulder length & thin hair so this work perfectly fine for me. It doesn’t pull my hair like the rollers with grips. It arrived in a timely fashion and in excellent condition. Good product for medium short hairs. They are okay but not the best.

Parties gear up for Gurdaspur


Ellington finally gets his All-Star 3-point contest call

first_imgHe has become a true 3-point specialist, one who arrives early on practice days and stays late and has blown the Heat away with his work ethic.“He’s a supremely conditioned athlete in the National Basketball Association,” Spoelstra said. “He’s the top tier. … Wayne plays his games now, catch-and-shoot style, in the red zone all game long. That’s just a testament to the work he’s put into his body.”Ellington has become one of Miami’s most important players.That means the Heat will have some things to decide this summer.Ellington is a journeyman who doesn’t want to be on more journeys. He’s been traded four times and joined four teams as a free agent, moving to a new NBA city on almost an annual basis. And he’ll be a free agent again in July — but has made no secret of the fact that, if he got a vote, would prefer to stay in Miami for the long haul. He’s getting married this summer, he and his fiancée recently had their first child, and Miami feels like home.ADVERTISEMENT 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises Blatter hints at new evidence to challenge 6-year FIFA ban Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH And it got Ellington to All-Star weekend.Ellington is one of the eight players picked to compete in the 3-point contest on All-Star Saturday Night, set for Feb. 18 in Los Angeles. Ellington has already set a career-high with 153 3-pointers this season, with nearly half the season still to play.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“I wouldn’t have been mad or upset if I didn’t get the call,” Ellington said. “But it felt great to get it, for sure. I’ve put a lot of work in and it’s always been one of my individual goals.”Here’s how important Ellington’s shooting from long range has been for Miami: The Heat are 0-7 when he doesn’t make a 3-pointer, and 29-15 when he makes one or more. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has given Ellington the ultimate green light — in his parts of two seasons with Miami, 77 percent of Ellington’s field-goal attempts have come from beyond the arc. LATEST STORIES AFP official booed out of forum “I think everybody knows that,” Ellington said. “I don’t hide it. I come in every day and I feel like I show it. This is where I want to be at the end of the day. Since I came to Miami, life’s been amazing for me. I’ve got my son, I’ve got my fiancee and my basketball life has done a complete 180. I feel so grateful just for the opportunity, and I’m so appreciative.”The uncertainty about his future hasn’t seemed to bother him.Ellington is averaging career-highs in points (11.2) and minutes (26.2) per game. And put simply, when he’s involved, the Heat win. In the 24 games where Ellington has scored more than 10 points, the Heat are 18-6.“Every year’s a contract year for me, pretty much,” Ellington said. “So I’ve learned to just play basketball. You can’t think about down the road or what’s going to happen next. You’ve just got to think about what’s going on right now. That’s really what I’ve been trying to do throughout my career. I’ve been on a lot of one-year deals and when you have to play like that, you kind of get accustomed to it.” Wayne Ellington of Miami Heat releases a shot in the second quarter during their game at Barclays Center on January 19, 2018 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Abbie Parr/Getty Images/AFPMIAMI — Wayne Ellington’s primary role with the Miami Heat is clear: He’s supposed to attempt a 3-pointer whenever possible.That’s a winning formula for the Heat.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
