Boys’ basketball: Maddox explodes in fourth for O.P.

first_imgThe Eagles (23-6) turned a one-point fourth-quarter deficit into a runaway win after a 20-2 rally spanning the first five minutes of the final period. Maddox had nine points in the pivotal quarter, and Nick Saliano contributed seven of his 11 points in the fourth. The Fighting Frogs (16-12) limited Maddox to two points in the third quarter after he scored 17 in the first half, but the box-and-one defense collapsed when role players Saliano and Blake Davenport (seven points) hit key baskets down the stretch. Andy Winningham deflated Ribet Academy with 6:20 remaining, when his 3-pointer from the top of the key put Oak Park ahead 47-40. “Teams can try and key on me all they want, but I have all the faith in the world in my teammates,” said Maddox, who has committed to Princeton. “We’re too talented as a team to fall apart down the stretch. We all trust one another.” Mardig Kiladjian had a game-high 17 points for Ribet Academy, the Div. V-A runner-up last year, while his 3-pointer with two seconds left in the third quarter gave the Fighting Frogs their first lead of the game at 38-37. Kiladjian scored 10 points in the third quarter as Ribet Academy outscored the Eagles 20-9 in the period. No. 4-seed Oak Park advances to face top-seed Campbell Hall of North Hollywood in the Div. III-AA semifinals Tuesday at Moorpark High. Campbell Hall boasts Justin and Jrue Holiday, brothers who are considered major NCAA Division I prospects. “We’re definitely aware of Campbell Hall,” Maddox said. “We expect them to be good, really good. “But I’ll take my team any day.” kevin.connelly@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It wasn’t an unrealistic strategy, considering Ribet’s box-and-one defense on the 6-foot-6 forward was immediately effective. The game plan ultimately fell apart, however, as Maddox finished with 28 points and 19 rebounds, and the Eagles exploded in the fourth quarter for a 63-47 Southern Section Div. III-AA quarterfinal victory Friday night. center_img OAK PARK – The message coming from the Ribet Academy of Los Angeles bench after halftime was clear. “Get a body on that (Kareem Maddox) kid,” Ribet coach William Middlebrooks implored. “He’s killing us.” last_img read more

Buchanan made No. 1 error: allowing start of Civil War

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Scholars who participated said Buchanan didn’t do enough to oppose efforts by Southern states to secede from the Union before the Civil War. The second worst mistake, the survey found, was Andrew Johnson’s decision just after the Civil War to side with Southern whites and oppose improvements in justice for Southern blacks beyond abolishing slavery. “We continue to pay” for Johnson’s errors, wrote Michael Les Benedict, an Ohio State University history professor emeritus. Lyndon Johnson earned the No. 3 spot by allowing the Vietnam War to intensify, Gregg said. Where does Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal rank? Many scholars said it belonged at No. 10, saying that it probably affected Clinton’s presidency more than it did American history and the public. LOUISVILLE, Ky. – From engaging in sexual relations with an intern to letting the Vietnam War escalate, U.S. presidents have been blamed for some egregious errors. So who had the worst blunder? President James Buchanan, for failing to avert the Civil War, according to a survey of presidential historians organized by the University of Louisville’s McConnell Center. The survey’s top 10 presidential blunders were announced Saturday during a Presidents Day weekend conference called “Presidential Moments.” “We can probably learn just as much – or maybe even more – by looking at the mistakes rather than looking at why they were great,” said political scientist and McConnell Center Director Gary Gregg. The rest of the top 10 blunders: 4: Woodrow Wilson’s refusal to compromise on the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. 5: Richard Nixon’s involvement in the Watergate coverup. 6: James Madison’s failure to keep the United States out of the War of 1812 with Britain. 7: Thomas Jefferson’s Embargo Act of 1807, a self-imposed prohibition on trade with Europe during the Napoleonic Wars. 8: John F. Kennedy allowing the Bay of Pigs Invasion that led to the Cuban Missile Crisis. 9: Ronald Reagan and the Iran-Contra Affair, the effort to sell arms to Iran and use the money to finance an armed anti-communist group in Nicaragua. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

REVEALED: BURGLARY GANG HIT 5 HOMES IN 20 MINUTES – THEN STEAL TWO CARS

first_imgGARDAI in Co Donegal are hunting for several suspects behind a burglary blitz in which thousands of euro worth of goods were taken – and two cars stolen.The incidents, in the Glencar area of Letterkenny, took place in just a 20 minute period.TVs, playstations, handbags, and personal items were all stolen in the raids. The experienced criminal gang went ‘door to door’.They then made their escape in two cars stolen in the same area. One of them was later found burnt out in Drumkeen in the early hours of Sunday morning.Donegaldaily.com understands that Gardai already suspect a number of thieves with lengthy criminal records.One suspect was recently released from prison, having served time for similar offences. Most of the homes which were raided were in Gleann Rua.“This was an orgy of mindless thuggery,” said one Garda, “it was just wanton theft and vandalism on a dreadful scale.”Gardai in Letterkenny are seeking help in catching the criminals.   REVEALED: BURGLARY GANG HIT 5 HOMES IN 20 MINUTES – THEN STEAL TWO CARS was last modified: May 8th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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) Tags:burglariesgleann ruaglencarletterkennylast_img read more

Results mixed for Glendale’s Alex Theatre

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Attendance for the past fiscal year was 159,431, compared with 149,795 for the year before. Net rental revenues were $778,027, up 14 percent from the previous year. But the theater had some maintenance expenses, some of them coming as a result of the winter rains. It had to spend $8,000 on repairs caused by water damage to the neon on the marquee tower. It had to spend an additional $25,000 to restore the ticket kiosk, which had been damaged by termites. The rains aggravated existing leaks at the building and the city, which owns the theater and gives it $415,000 a year, will be paying for those. Another upcoming expense will be replacing the sound system, which is built for plays instead of concerts. Upgrading the system to work better for concerts could cost the theater between $175,000 and $250,000. “In general I think the City Council has been pleased with the direction of the Alex Theatre and the executive team over there,” said Mayor Rafi Manoukian. “Over the past few years, revenues have been up and we’re hoping that will continue in that fashion.” GLENDALE – Attendance increased by 6.4 percent at the Alex Theatre last fiscal year, but the historic venue with a $1.7 million budget had unanticipated maintenance needs and finished with a small deficit, according to a new report. The nonprofit theater finished the fiscal year ending June 30 with a $15,600 deficit, compared with a loss the previous year of nearly $54,500. City officials are pleased with the direction the theater is going, after it bounced back from a $400,000 deficit in 2001. One of the decisions the theater has made recently to save money is to stop producing its own shows. The last show it produced in-house was an April production of the play “The Old Settler,” and the theater does not expect to produce another show for at least two years. “I think we’ve done a good job as an organization in trying to be proactive to kind of surprise expenditures instead of always reactive, and I think that’s a (reason for) a small operating loss this year instead of a larger one,” said Barry McComb, executive director of the theater. Outside promoters have done a better job maximizing revenues and attracting crowds, and more community groups are using the theater. Armenian and Filipino productions have increased in the past two years. “As the population base kind of diversifies, we see that our programming pretty much mirrors that,” McComb said. The theater was built in 1925 and reopened in 1993 after the city bought the former movie house.

ED SHEERAN TELLS DONEGAL SINGER TO ‘KEEP SMASHING IT’

first_imgEd SheeranEd Sheeran has given Dublin/Dongal singer Eoin Glackin his seal of approval, tweeting to his 15 million followers that the musician was “smashing it”.Eoin, whose mum is Eileen McDaid from Ramelton,  met Ed at a Jamie Lawson gig in New York City earlier this week, where he passed along his album in hopes that the singer-songwriter might listen to it.And it looks like the megastar was impressed with what he heard after he sent the following tweet. He said: “I was at a mate of mine’s gig, Jamie Lawson.“He’s about to release an album on Ed‘s label [Gingerbread Records], so Ed was at the gig.“I just walked over – I had an album with me – and I just gave it to him.“He was cool about it, I didn’t want to hassle him too much. “He just took it off me and was just like ‘Thanks man’.“I didn’t think he’d really listen to it, but I guess he did.”Following the gig, the singer gave Eoin’s album a listen – and decided to get in touch via social media.“I’m listening now. Keep writing and keep smashing it.”Eoin shared a snap of the Tweet on his own account, before responding to the 24-year-old chart-topper. He replied: “Cheers Ed.“Much appreciated. See you down the road.“Great gig from Jamie too.”The singer will take to the stage at the Workman’s Club in Dublin on November 19.

Localeaks: A Drop-Box for Anonymous Tips to 1400 U.S. Newspapers

first_imgTags:#New Media#news#web Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img audrey watters Although the mission of WikiLeaks is to “open governments,” it’s done quite a lot to make us think about how to open journalism as well. We’ve seen a number of new whistleblower sites crop up – OpenLeaks and Rospil, for example – as well as major news organizations – Al Jazeera, and perhaps even The New York Times – investigate ways to facilitate more whistle-blowing and leaking.But why wait for local newspapers to roll out their own anonymous tips pipeline when a project from CUNY Graduate School‘s Entrepreneurial Journalism program has designed just that thing.Using Localeaks, you can send an anonymous tip, including a file, to over 1400 newspapers in the U.S. through one online form. Choose your state. Choose the newspaper. Enter your information and submit your anonymous tip.Each drop-box consists of a secure web connection and a form that encrypts both files and the text submitted (then destroys the originals) as well as removes identifying metadata from documents. The system also makes every effort to leave no traceable remnants from the transaction, such as identifiable session cookies on the client side or logging of any IP addresses on the server side.Once a file is submitted, the newspaper will receive an email, alerting them to the tip. The newspaper then needs to reply that it’s interested. Then a temporary secure file transfer is established. This last step isn’t automated yet, according to Matthew Terenzio, Web Development Director at The Hour Publishing Co and one of the members of this project. The best way to do so, he says, would be to have the encryption software – the open source GnuPG in this case – set up on the newspaper’s end. “It is unlikely that most would have it yet,” says Terenzio, who says he’s working on helping some newspapers set up their own drop-boxes to avoid this step.But an increasing familiarity with encryption might just be in more newsroom’s future, particularly if the number of “local leaks” continue. After all, as Terenzio notes, “the people formerly called the audience and the sources, are setting the pace of change, not the news organizations.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
