Another spring session is in the books for the Trojan football team, and now the wait begins for fall practice and the opener against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Spring practice is great for showcasing potentially new dynamic players as well as offering a glimpse of what the season ahead brings. This year, Clay Helton’s first as head coach, was no different.While most of the focus surrounded the quarterback battle between redshirt junior Max Browne and redshirt freshman Sam Darnold, there were points of interest all across the Trojan roster. In addition, fans and players got their first taste of the newly assembled coaching staff. The group of coaches offers an interesting blend of holdovers from the current staff, returning coaches on their second tour of USC and Helton connections.Coaching is such an important component of player development at the collegiate level, and it seems that this group knows what they are doing. While it is still early, and the sample size is only 15 practices, the quotes and practice assessments coming from both coaches and players seem to be markedly improved in terms of discipline and organization from years past.In particular, both sides of the line appear to be in good hands. The offensive line, which returns the bulk of their depth chart, is led by new coach Neil Callaway. Callaway has more than 30 years of experience in coaching, and brings sage wisdom and a low key approach that has the line looking in sync and developing at a rapid pace. So far, Callaway has impressed with his role during the spring and could be the best line coach the Trojans have had since Tim Drevno during the 2014 season.An offensive line that is strong and mobile as well as disciplined will be a key to the Trojans’ success regardless of who is under center. On the defensive side, the front four will set the tone for a back seven that returns a wealth of talent.Unfortunately, the front four is relatively thin at this stage. Redshirt junior defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow Jr., who was expected to be an anchor on the line this year, was lost for the season during the spring. The Trojans suffered another scare yesterday as sophomore defensive tackle Noah Jefferson left practice with what Helton said is hopefully a minor injury. Any more losses on an already beleaguered front four will make first-year coach Kenenchi Udeze’s job even harder.Udeze who was a star at USC and part of the Wild Bunch 2 line that featured fellow NFL stalwarts Mike Patterson and Sean Cody in addition to Omar Nazel, moves into a position coaching role with great promise and fanfare. What he may lack in years of coaching, Udeze more than makes up for with enthusiasm, passion and firsthand knowledge and experience of what it takes to be great at both the collegiate and professional level.One of Udeze’s strengths in the spring and hopefully going forward will be the development of some of USC’s younger athletes on the line who have demonstrated tremendous potential and just to need refine their technique to elevate their game.Building up strong lines on both sides of the ball will allow Helton to implement his desired game plan, and win with a punishing and high octane attack. One spring session won’t build the final product, as that will take some serious time, but the Trojans made some serious strides in their first 15 sessions.The team is stacked at the receiver and running back positions and has many young and talented defensive backs and linebackers. With a renewed emphasis on spreading the ball around next season, the Trojans could have some other position players join junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, junior defensive back and wide receiver Adoree’ Jackson and sophomore tailback Ronald Jones II on the national radar. If they can stay healthy athletes like redshirt junior wide receiver Steven Mitchell Jr., senior wide receiver Darreus Rogers, redshirt sophomore wide receiver Ajene Harris and sophomore tailback Dominic Davis all could have expanded roles in the offense.Ultimately, regardless of who is under center in the first game, if the Trojans can further develop their offensive line and make sure either Darnold and Browne has enough time to spread the ball around to the immense talent surrounding them, the Trojans could be in great shape next season.Spring session is over and the early results on offense look promising. Now, the fall will be about making sure the defense can stay healthy and match the offenses’ progress so Helton’s debut season as head coach will be a successful one.Jake Davidson is a junior majoring in accounting.

Harmison was part of the English Disabled Golf team which won the bronze medal at the European Team Championships for disabled golfers in Portugal last month. He raised his game at the English Disability Open to beat fellow members of the squad including Groves, who recently won the Swedish Invitational in a play off, and last year’s winner, Duncan Hamilton-Martin (St Georges Hill) Disabled people who are keen to get into golf can find their local inclusive golf facility at the Get into golf website or find out more about the events across the country from www.englandgolf.org/disabilitygolf Alternatively, email England Golf on email@example.com for assistance. The presentations were made by Dr Bill Holmes, a member of The R&A’s Referees Panel who was also out on duty out on the course over the weekend. Northumberland’s Kevin Harmison took the 2017 English Disability Open title after two great days of golf, winning on countback from George Groves of Sussex. Harmison (Newbiggin) and Groves (Copthorne) tied on 151 gross after two rounds on the Earls and Kings Courses at The Warwickshire Golf Club. Harmison won thanks to his superior score over the last three holes. “I would also like to thank the BALASA committee, our referees and Colin Knapp, the club’s Senior Captain and the senior section who provided spotters and scorers over the weekend.” 3 Sep 2017 Countback win for Kevin at English Disability Open Harmison (image copyright Leaderboard Photography) said: “I played with two fantastic groups over the weekend and it is a pity that someone had to lose. I’m really pleased to have won the title but was pushed all the way to the last shot on the final hole” Jamie Blair, Disability Manager for England Golf, commented: “The Warwickshire were fantastic hosts for a fantastic show of golfing ability. Huge congratulations to the players on their achievements across two challenging courses that were excellently prepared. From 2019, England Golf will be taking over the management of this event and making this part of their annual calendar of events. The previous two years have provided great insight and set a standard for the future. As part of this transition, England Golf will be launching an online survey for disabled golfers to give their views on what they would like to see at events. The English Disability Open, hosted by BALASA Golf and supported by England Golf and The R&A, welcomed 41 golfers competing for the overall gross prize and also for net prizes in two categories and a stableford competition. Other winners were: Category 1 (handicaps up to 9.4), Ashley Harris (Merrist Wood), net 140 Category 2 (handicaps up to 18.4), Ben Bowen (Holsworthy), net 147 Category 3 (handicaps above 18.5), Richard Saunders (Hintlesham), 59 stableford points.

These are two good horses.“One thing about Baffert: he gets good horses and he’s not afraid to train them.”In other Santa Anita Derby news:Trainer Jim Cassidy said he may opt out of the Santa Anita Derby in favor of the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 4 for Delta Jackpot winner Ocho Ocho Ocho, who suffered superficial leg cuts when finishing eighth behind Dortmund in the San Felipe Stakes.In either case, his current go-to rider, Santiago Gonzalez, would have the mount.Santa Anita offers a $750,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 pool and a $300,000 guaranteed Pick 6 pool on Santa Anita Derby Day. -30-
URUGUAYAN MARE GENEROSIDADE BLOWS OUT TOTE BOARD WITH 71-1 WIN IN GRADE II, $200,000 SAN LUIS REY STAKES; PEREIRA & LOBO TEAM FOR 1 ½ LENGTH WIN GOING MILE & ONE HALF ON TURF IN 2:28.80
ARCADIA, Calif. (March 13, 2016)–In a massive upset, 71-1 longshot Generosidade flew late to take Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Luis Rey Stakes under Tiago Pereira by 1 ½ lengths while covering a mile and one half on a turf course listed as “good” in 2:28.80. Trained by Paulo Lobo, Uruguayan-bred Generosidade made her third stateside start today.“I was so excited because this is my (second) graded win in North America,” said an ebullient Pereira, who like Lobo, is a Brazilian native. “Generosidade was so good today. We sat behind, we let the pace go and the last three eighths, I was able to get outside and get up to win it.“Paulo told me to relax the first part of the race in the other three times I rode her (three) because she liked to do that when she ran in Brazil. But, in the three races she’s run here, they were not so good…Her last work was good and today she was too good for them.”The longest shot in a field of 10 older horses that included four females, Generosidade paid $144.80, $45.60 and $17.60.Owned by her breeder, Haras Phillipson, Inc., Generosidade got her fifth win from 16 lifetime starts and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased her earnings to $206,894.“She’s a marathon horse,” said Lobo. “She loves the distance and we were looking for a mile and a half. She had her (recent) race (finishing sixth in the 1 ½ miles turf Astra Stakes here on Jan. 17). I think the rain helped me because she’s seven years old. She has issues, little problems, and the softer ground helped her.Trained by Ron McAnally and ridden by Tyler Baze, Chilean-bred Quick Casablanca rallied boldly from far back to be second, finishing a neck in front of Brazilian-bred Energia Fribby. Off at 10-1, Quick Casablanca paid $11.00 and $5.60.“I tried to thread the needle (at the top of the lane) and a horse stopped in front of me,” said Baze. “The horse is on the top of his game right now. He’s doing awesome. I can’t wait for the next one.”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Energia Fribby, a 6-year-old mare, rallied wide-out and finished third, a neck in front of Highball. Off at 30-1, Energia Fribby paid $12.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.18, 47.61, 1:12.29, 1:38.20 and 2:03.83.There is a massive two-day Pick Six carryover into Thursday at Santa Anita of $548,670.

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… marshall kirkpatrick Like a prism to a ray of sunlight, stream-hacking startup Mediasift CEO Nick Halstead took the stage today with Twitter’s Ryan Sarver at the Data 2.0 conference to announce Twitter’s second data resales channel partnership. Halstead’s service will allow customers to parse the full Twitter fire hose along any of the 40 fields of data hidden inside every Tweet, with the addition of augmented data layers from services including Klout (influence metrics), PeerIndex (influence), Qwerly (linked social media accounts) and Lexalytics (text and sentiment analysis). Storage, post-processing and historical snapshots will also be available.The price? Dirt cheap. Halstead told me after the announcement that customers would be able to apply as many as 10,000 keyword filters to the fire hose for as little as 30 cents an hour. The most computationally expensive filtering Mediasift will offer won’t be priced above $8k per year. (Pricing approximate but indicative, Halstead says.) What does this mean? It means that far more developers than ever before will now have a stable, officially approved and very affordable way to access highly targeted slices of data. Twitter just found a way to hand developers an Amazon River’s worth of golden tinker-toys, each with more than 40 points of contact, at commodity prices. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Above: Thanks to Qwerly integration, when you look at a Twitter @username – Mediasift sees more than just the Twitter profile. It sees @username who has bookmarks saved online, plans for public events to attend, photos shared publicly with friends, check-ins to places around town and much more. Any of those are like columns in a spreadsheet of Twitter search results. Show me Tweets with any of the following keywords by people planning to attend event A and who have been to place B or C. Thanks to Qwerly, Twitter didn’t just get a giant new developer search and filter feature – it got integration with a whole lot of other social services. Throw in sentiment and authority filtering and it’s like the social graph just exploded. (Update: Qwerly won’t be live for another week, Halstead says. Likewise, thousands of people have requested and granted Mediasift invites but Halstead says the site will open to the public in coming weeks.)You can make a filtering rule, make it public or private, share and comment on other peoples’ rules and more. While Twitter’s partnership with bulk data reseller Gnip (announced in November) offered half the fire hose in bulk for a whopping $360k or 5% of the fire hose for $60k per year – Mediasift prices and use cases will be very different. Pricing will be modeled like Amazon Cloud Computing and each function’s cost will be spelled out as the user requests it. Geo-filtering is expensive, keyword filtering is cheap – for example. Keyword filtering is done, stable and available now. Storage of the data for post-processing and snapshots of historical data are described as in alpha stages.Want a feed of negative Tweets written by C-level execs about any of 10,000 keywords? Trivial! Basic level service, Halstead says! Want just the Tweets that fit those criteria and are from the North Eastern United States? That you’ll have to pay a little extra for. The possibilities are staggering.All the message contents, all the bio contents, bio contents from other social services (like LinkedIn) associated to peoples’ Twitter accounts via Qwerly, sentiment analysis – all of these will be points of contact where filtering can occur. Want a feed of negative Tweets written by C-level execs about any of 10,000 keywords? Trivial! Basic level service, Halstead says! Want just the Tweets that fit those criteria and are from the North Eastern United States? That you’ll have to pay a little extra for. The possibilities are staggering.Below: This is what a Tweet looks like. Every little message has more than 40 different fields. Mediasift customers will be able to filter the full Twitter fire hose by any of those fields or by data from additional 3rd party services.“Twitter is moving up the value chain by offering the high-level information that developers want,” said ReadWriteWeb contributor and leading social data hacker Pete Warden about the announcement. “Rather than selling commodity information for further processing, this partnership offers a narrow but deep slice.”This is a bet on a future wherein greater value is built by widespread, low-cost access to social data on the part of many and diverse developers. It’s not just raw data either, it’s really rich. It’s the opposite of what the Gnip announcement signalled and what many people have feared – that Twitter would horde its river of data and sell it just to high bidders.More on this in the coming days. I’m very excited to start hacking on it all with ReadWriteWeb’s team of developers.

In a battle of two teams that have already secured home-court advantage in the playoffs, Real Madrid secured a top-two finish at the end of the regular season with a hard-fought 73-79 win over Olympiacos Piraeus at Peace and Friendship Stadium on Friday night. Madrid improved to 21-7 and left it in the driver’s seat knowing two wins in the last two games will secure it first place at the end of the regular season. Olympiacos dropped to 19-9 and remains in the third place. Neither team had a double-digit lead the entire night, but Madrid’s Anthony Randolph and Sergio Llull, scoring 21 points apiece, got the better of the Olympiacos defense and kept the visitors in front throughout the fourth quarter. Llull also dished 5 assists, while Randolph pulled down 5 boards and had 4 blocks. Othello Hunter scored 10 points in victory. Nikola Milutinov paced the hosts with a career-high 18 points, Kostas Papanikolaou added 11 points and 6 rebounds and Dimitrios Agravanis scored 10 for Olympiacos, which played without Georgios Printezis due to illness.The teams traded blows the entire first half. Olympiacos was the team to go in front first, with Milutinov scoring 9 points and grabbing a pair of offensive rebounds. An offensive board by Papanikolaou led to a big dunk from Ioannis Papapetrou and an 18-10 lead. But after a timeout, Llull and Randolph scored 9 points, including a Llull three-pointer in the last second that cut it to 20-19 after 10 minutes. The second quarter alone featured nine lead changes and four ties. Erick Green and Matt Lojeski nailed threes for the hosts, but Randolph scored on two fast breaks and hit a corner three-pointer. The teams were appropriately tied at 37-37 at halftime, then each made its own runs in the third quarter. Papanikolaou and Vassilis Spanoulis hit triples at the start of the third to opena 6-point lead for the hosts, but three-pointers from Jeffrey Taylor and Jonas Maciulis got Madrid back within a single possession. Randolph and Llull hit tough shots, and Llull also nailed a three-pointer that got Madrid in front 52-56. It turned out the visitors took the lead for good. Madrid led 54-58 going into the fourth quarter and Randolph made a pair of tough baskets before Hunter added a tip-in and put through the rim a tough alley-oop pass from Llull. That made it 60-68, and a Llull basket opened a 63-72 advantage. Olympiacos made another charge, with Vangelis Mantzaris driving to the hoop, Spanoulis hitting from long range, and Papanikolaou fighting for a close-range basket that made it 70-73. But in the final minute, Llull went length of the floor for a fastbreak layup, before Randolph’s free throws sealed the deal.Source: EuroleagueTweetPinShare0 Shares
