Stony Brook’s runs doom No. 4 Syracuse in 17-16 loss

first_img Published on February 10, 2020 at 10:18 pm Contact Alex: [email protected] | @alexhamer8 Facebook Twitter Google+ As Sierra Cockerille and her Syracuse teammates walked into the locker room, the halftime disappointment was evident. With a 6-2 lead with nine a half minutes remaining in the opening half, the Orange had threatened to run away with another victory.From her favored position in the low block, Megan Carney spotted a wide-open cutter entering the crease. But SU’s leader in assists underthrew the pass, leading to a quick Stony Brook counter-attack and free position goal for Ally Kennedy. From offensive breakdowns and blown draw controls, the Orange stumbled into the intermission tied.“We walked into the locker room with our heads down,” Cockerille said. “You could hear (Stony Brook) screaming in the other locker room.”No. 4 Syracuse (1-1) never recovered from its first-half collapse when No. 10 Stony Brook (1-0) opened up the second half on an 8-2 run. The Seawolves survived a late Emily Hawryschuk-led comeback and held on for a 17-16 victory over the Orange. Cockerille said SU needed to come out in the second half with a “zero-zero” mentality, but admitted they couldn’t match the Seawolves’ intensity. “I think that we knew that Syracuse is a great team and we knew we needed to get the energy up,” Stony Brook attack Kailyn Hart said. “But we knew we could beat them.” AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJust as they had in the first half, the Seawolves scored just over a minute in and then won the ensuing draw. Kennedy — who tormented the SU defense all game with four goals — burst through the midfield and defense to feed Jesse Arline for a simple finish. The goals were separated by just 43 seconds. Although Syracuse was able to level the score at nine shortly after with goals from Ella Simkins and Meaghan Tyrrell, the Orange never regained the lead. Possessions continued to break down, and when they didn’t, shots often went straight at Stony Brook goalie Kameron Halsall. Those saves in turn initiated Stony Brook transition opportunities. Wave after wave of counter-attacks wore the Syracuse midfield out and on one occasion, Cockerille made a desperate attempt to dispossess a Stony Brook midfielder but wildly crashed into her — knocking her goggles off in the process. Stony Brook fans screamed for Cockerille to be ejected, but she was just shown a yellow card. The knockout blow came with just under 12 minutes to go. As Stony Brook began to dominate possession, Kennedy swung the ball to Hart on the right wing. With her back to goal, Hart, a freshman playing in her first game, took a quick glance over her shoulder, before turning back towards Kennedy as she swung her stick behind her back, beating an unsuspecting Asa Goldstock at her near post. “It was just in the flow of the game and came to me so naturally,” Hart said. “You’ll see after I dropped my stick my face was just like, ‘Wow, what happened.” Hart’s highlight reel extended Stony Brook’s lead to five goals and head coach Gary Gait knew something had to change. He substituted Goldstock, who slammed her stick on the sideline after walking off, for junior goalie Hannah Van Middelem. “It’s what we needed,” Gait said. “We got a spark, it may not have been from that but it comes from the most random thing that you do and all of a sudden the switch goes and you start putting the ball away.”Still, Van Middelem and Syracuse let in two more goals, meaning an Orange surge in the last 10 minutes came up short. As Syracuse players slowly walked to the sideline to complete their post-game stretches, Stony Brook players mobbed the field, screaming in elation as they surrounded Halsall. “It’s like going fishing and catching a 50-pound bass on your first cast,” Stony Brook head coach Joe Spallina said. “It’s special, this is one of the top one or two wins we’ve had in our program’s history.” Commentslast_img read more

Darwinist Reporter Calls Everyone a Hypocrite

first_imgIn a surprising show of journalistic hubris, reporter Robin Nixon of Live Science accused every human being in the world of being a moral hypocrite.    “Why We’re All Moral Hypocrites” reported results of a study by Piercarlo Valdesolo at Northeastern University that indicated people tend to judge themselves more leniently than others.    The article discussed moral instincts, moral behaviors and moral decisions, and even said “we are instinctively moral beings.”  Yet all this morality was ascribed to the amoral processes of evolution: “The researchers speculate that instinctive morality results from evolutionary selection for team players.  Being fair, they point out, strengthens mutually beneficial relationships and improves our chances for survival.”Speak for yourself, Robin.  This reporter for one of the most egregious of the dogmatic-Darwin news sites has illustrated profoundly illogical and unscientific behavior.  She has just besmirched the character of all gentle grandmothers praying for wayward children, all men of God in the pulpit, all self-sacrificing parents, all missionaries, all doctors serving poor people in third-world countries, and all honorable people everywhere by calling them moral hypocrites.  Is a guilty conscience here finding comfort in numbers?    Worse, she speaks nonsense by speaking of morality as a product of evolution.  If “morality” is only about self-survival, and if it bears no reference to absolute standards of right and wrong, it is a meaningless word.  Not even survival can be called morally beneficial; death and extinction are equally as meaningless as survival in Darwin’s universe.  Who is to judge that survival is a good thing?  Who is there to pat the chimps on the back when they act like team players and survive better?    “Evolutionary morality” is an oxymoron.  The fact that this reporter innately knows right from wrong and makes moral judgments herself refutes her claim that morals evolved.  At least she admitted that the researchers had nothing to back up that claim other than speculation.    Only the Biblical world view can defend the assertion that we are moral beings, because it teaches moral absolutes rooted in the character of God who created all things.  And only the Biblical worldview can judge humans as hypocritical.  This hypocrisy, the result of sin, is curable through Jesus Christ.    Even thoughtful non-Christians should look at this article as profoundly irrational.  Can a contrived lab test on 85 individuals be generalized to all of humanity, of all cultures and all times?  What kind of scientific reasoning is that?  Robin should have been laughing at this study, not praising it.  In our culture, any stupid thing that a so-called scientist publishes in some journal somewhere garners more presumptive authority than something that a righteous man in the pulpit has to say from the word of God.  Hypocrisy is not limited to the occasional preacher who strays from the moral standard.  It applies also to those who speak vain words of morality while denying its foundation.  By indicting all humanity, this reporter indicts herself.  Her readers are therefore justifiably entitled to ignore anything she says, including the assertion that morality evolved.  How can we trust her word?  She’s a hypocrite, too – unless she claims Yoda privileges, which make her an exalted master looking in on the predicament of mankind from the outside.  But then, how could we know such a claim is not hypocritical?    Evolutionary theory offers no hope for hypocrisy, because whatever moral instincts we have could only be part of a pointless, meaningless, inborn nature; why fight it?  The Bible offers forgiveness for hypocrisy (Romans 10) and a moral standard to which we can and should aspire, enabled by God’s Holy Spirit (Romans 12).(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Is a Multiverse Detectable?

first_imgThe idea of a multiverse (an ensemble of universes like our own visible one) has been criticized as unscientific because it would be unobservable, even in principle.  Now, however, some theoretical physicists are claiming that bubble universes beyond ours could be detected in the cosmic microwave background radiation – provided they collide with our universe.  Does this bring multiverse theory back into the realm of science? National Geographic News, posting an article on this idea, said, “The multiverse, if it exists, may have sprung out of a chaotic fluctuation of empty space.”  Chaotic motions from other bubble universes might “bruise” our universe and leave telltale patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB).  Matthew Johnson, a theoretical physicist at the Perimeter Institute, with colleagues, is working on an algorithm to find the patterns. But what to look for?  Sean Carroll, physicist at Caltech, warned that “People tend to recognize patterns whether or not they are there.”  Trouble is, nobody knows what the needle in the haystack would look like.  “Even with better data from Planck” (a new space telescope measuring the CMB in finer detail), “finding evidence of a universe-to-universe smashup is a game of chance, thanks to the nearly infinite possible outcomes.”  For this reason and the fact that any deviations in the CMB are likely to be extremely subtle, Carroll thinks the quest is “a long shot”.  But the implications would be so earth shattering, he is eager to see what Johnson and team find. They don’t know what they are looking for, they don’t know what they might expect to find, and they won’t be able to confirm it when they see it.  Imagine looking for a what-not in a pile of whatever, that might leave an infinite set of possible outcomes.  You could claim success and nobody could ever confirm or deny it.  NG unabashedly stated another piece of nonsense: “The multiverse, if it exists, may have sprung out of a chaotic fluctuation of empty space.”  The whatever, if it exists, might have spring out of a chaotic what-not.  Isn’t science wonderful. The elephant in the room that Carroll, Johnson, Hawking and all the other multiverse advocates are overlooking is the question of ultimate origins.  Even if, in their wildest dreams, in spite of overwhelming odds, they had some basis for claiming that some other bubble is pushing on our bubble, they would merely displace the question of ultimate origins to another location.  Let them start with what Francis Schaeffer called “nothing nothing” – no space, no time, no laws of nature, no fields, no categories.  From absolutely nothing, get them to derive not only a universe, but reasoning beings questioning its origin and destiny.  The folly of such a quest is self-evident. Exercise.  See if Ethan Siegel in “The Physics of Nothing, The Philosophy of Everything” on ScienceBlogs.com succeeded in building a universe out of nothing nothing.  (Hint: philosophy and laws of physics are something.)(Visited 47 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Sloane Stephens Advances to Australian Open Quarters

Sloane Stephens, 19, continues to show a champion’s mettle in her rise to prominence in women’s tennis. What she overcame in beating Bojana Jovanovski to advance to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open told a lot about her growth.In defeating Jovanovski 6-1, 3-6, 7-5, Stephens overcame temperatures in the 90s, Jovaovski’s incessant grunting on every shot and the pressure that comes with playing in a Grand Slam event.“I just had to find a way,” Stephens said. “I think mentally it was pretty tough. I was thinking, ‘Oh, my God, this is for the quarters of a Grand Slam and I’m completely just like not here right now.’ I was like, ‘I need to refocus.’ I was playing my own self, I guess you could say. But I managed to get through, so that was good.”Here’s the even more fun-interesting-symbolic part: If Serena Williams defeats Maria Kirilenko, as expected, she and Stephens will face each other to get to the semifinal. Williams (and her sister Venus) inspired Stephens as an African-American young woman to take up the sport. Serena Williams has shared bits of wisdom with Stephens as she continues to climb the ATP rankings.“Obviously every match is a learning experience,” Stephens said, who lost to Serena Williams, 6-4, 6-3 in their only match. “But, I mean, you’ve just got to go and treat it like another match. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, my God, I played Serena, I’m going to be so great at all these other things because she just taught me so much.’ It was just another match, regular match. Little things that you just take and move on.”The 29th-seeded Stephens displayed veteran aplomb in her cruise-control first set against Jovanovski, but dropped a notch in energy and aggression as her opponent adjusted and began dictating the points. She dropped three service games in the second set and clearly was battling her own passivity as well as Jovanovski’s laudable groundstrokes. When Stephens cracked a volley winner in the late going — her seventh net point in as many tries — it raised the question of why she wasn’t coming in more.“I was going cross court on all my shots,” Stephens said. “That was safe. Can’t lose with that. She was going down the line on every shot … She’s hitting it with everything she has, every muscle in her body, and hitting it unbelievably.“I couldn’t find a rhythm, couldn’t find anything. But sometimes you just kind of got to stick it out, and hopefully she comes down off her throne.” read more

Road infrastructure challenges cited by residents to Wheeland MP

first_img Traffic relief coming for Blue Hills says Minister Related Items:blue hills, delroy williams, infrastructure, wheeland Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 03 Jul 2015 – Bad roads, bad lighting and a bad mess of traffic are what residents of Wheeland and Blue Hills are calling the Member of Parliament for electoral district #10 about. Hon Delroy Williams is the second MP this week to express sentiments reportedly being expressed to him about the condition of life in the country’s largest residential community. Williams is calling on residents to petition government to improve the infrastructure and he is also sending a clarion call to Premier Rufus Ewing to better the constituencies. Among the suggestions: create another roadway into and out of Blue Hills to reduce the traffic clog; he said emergency vehicles find it near impossible to pass during the morning and afternoon commutes and when they do get through, it is an often dangerous and staggering situation. The Wheeland Member calls the traffic and road conditions in Blue Hills and Wheeland, “hazardous.” Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp PNP supporter ‘no-show’ at Wheeland Claims & Objections Fiery explosion kills Blue Hills manlast_img read more

Death toll rises to 31 in deadliest week of wildfires in Californias

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: October 11, 2017 Death toll rises to 31 in deadliest week of wildfires in California’s history KUSI Newsroom By JONATHAN J. COOPER and JOCELYN GECKERAssociated Press  SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) – Northern California’s wildfires have now killed 31 people – making this the deadliest week of wildfires in state history.  Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano said Thursday night that two more people have been confirmed dead there. That raises the statewide death total from 29 to 31.  The Oakland Hills fire of 1991 killed 29 people by itself.  While no one fire currently burning has killed that many, collectively this is the deadliest series of simultaneous fires in the state since records have been kept.  The blazes, most of them in wine country, broke out almost all at once on Sunday night.California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Chief Ken Pimlott gave the updated death toll Wednesday, calling the series of wildfires in wine country “a serious, critical, catastrophic event.”  At least 3,500 homes and businesses have been destroyed since the wildfires started Sunday, making them the third-most deadly and destructive blazes in state history.  Nearly three days after the flames ignited in Northern California, firefighters were still unable to gain control the blazes, which were growing in number. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Daniel Berlant said 22 wildfires were burning, up from 17 on Tuesday.center_img October 11, 2017 Latest CA Wildfires Stats:3,500 homes & structures burned21 people killed20,000+ people evacuated pic.twitter.com/Z4Mdpi34qt— CAL FIRE PIO (@CALFIRE_PIO) October 11, 2017  Flames have raced across the wine-growing region and the coastal beauty of Mendocino further north, leaving little more than smoldering ashes and eye-stinging smoke in their wake. Whole neighborhoods are gone, with only brick chimneys and charred laundry machines to mark sites that were once family homes.  Authorities ordered more evacuations for parts of Sonoma Valley after a blaze grew to 44 square miles (113 square kilometers). Officials also cautioned that after a day of cooler weather and calmer winds, dangerous gusts will return Wednesday.  Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano said the reports of missing people jumped to over 600, up from about 200 a day earlier. But officials believe many of those people will be found, saying that the chaotic evacuations and poor communications over the past few days have made finding friends and family difficult.  Despite that, he expects the death toll will rise.  “The devastation is enormous,” he said. “We can’t even get into most areas. I would expect the number to go up.”  Officials in Napa County say almost half of the population of Calistoga, a town of 5,000 people, were ordered to evacuate before sunrise. Officials went block by block, knocking on doors between 3 and 6 a.m. to warn people to leave, Napa County Supervisor Diane Dillon said.  New evacuation orders were also in place for Green Valley in Solano County.  Napa County Fire Chief Barry Biermann said high winds and low humidity fueled the fires and similar conditions were expected again.  “Yesterday was a very aggressive day for fire behavior with some rapid expansion for fires,” he said at a news conference. “We are expecting some extreme fire behavior” on Wednesday.  In Southern California, cooler weather and moist ocean air helped firefighters gain ground against a wildfire that has scorched more than a dozen square miles.  Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said the blaze was nearly halfway surrounded and full containment was expected by Saturday, but another round of gusty winds and low humidity levels could arrive late Thursday.  ___  Gecker reported from San Francisco. Associated Press writers Olga R. Rodriguez, Juliet Williams and Andrew Dalton in San Francisco contributed to this report.  ___  Follow the AP’s complete wildfire coverage here: https://apnews.com/tag/Wildfires.(Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.
