Commentary Why doesnt Ohio State basketball do midnight madness

Remember the video of Ohio State men’s basketball players Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler and Jared Sullinger singing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A?” Do you wish you could see those three sing the song live? If the OSU men’s basketball team had a midnight madness, that performance could happen. Started by Charles “Lefty” Driesell at the University of Maryland, midnight madness is currently a major part of the college basketball world, and it took place last Friday night. Driesell came up with the idea in 1971 to have his Terrapins’ first practice of the season at the earliest possible time that the NCAA would allow: midnight. Schools across the country have since adopted that idea, with the midnight practice now transforming into more of a preseason party hosted by the basketball team than work on the court. Students, alumni and fans gather at a teams’ arena to see their program introduce that year’s team. Different schools do different things, but the event usually involves the team performing a song or dance, the head coach giving a speech, and an intrasquad scrimmage. This year, Connecticut had a dunk contest, Syracuse got Carmelo Anthony to show up and interact with the crowd, and Maryland had an alumni scrimmage featuring some of their current and former NBA players. Nonathlete celebrities show up for the madness as well. Rapper Wale performed at Georgetown’s event last season, and 50 Cent appeared at Villanova’s five years ago. Basically, all the big-time programs have some form of a season tip-off event highlighted by entertaining performances and all-star game-type defense scrimmages. Except for the Buckeyes. It’s not as if OSU doesn’t have a big enough basketball program to host such an event. Two 30-win seasons and a national title game appearance in the last five years, along with an anticipated top-five team this year puts the Buckeyes among the nation’s top teams. Why not celebrate something that OSU does well? With the current state of the football program, the men’s basketball team should be the pride of the athletic department. Hosting an event that takes attention away from the football team and focusing it onto a basketball program that has done nothing but win and represent the school well in recent years needs to happen. The possibilities for the event are endless. A scrimmage between players, both former and current, would certainly entertain. Who wouldn’t want to see Sullinger posting up Greg Oden or William Buford trying to shake Evan Turner? Ohio natives Kid Cudi, Bow Wow, or Chip tha Ripper could perform. If those three aren’t available, I’m sure the crowd wouldn’t mind being serenaded by the voices of Craft and Sullinger. Who knows, maybe known Buckeye fan Lebron James would show up. Either way, OSU is missing out on a big part of the college basketball world, and it’s time for change. read more

Creator of meldonium ‘quite sure’ other top athletes using it

first_imgThe Latvian creator of banned drug meldonium said on 10 March that he was quite sure other top athletes are – and should – use it. Ivars Kalvins expressed sadness over the banning of the drug that has cast a pall over the career of tennis star Maria Sharapova, describing it as one of the most significant accomplishments of the tiny nations scientists.The five-time grand slam champion has revealed she tested positive in January for the drug meldonium, which its Latvian inventor once said had been used to toughen up Soviet troops fighting at high altitudes three decades ago. Kalvins also claimed that Sharapova is not alone in taking the drug, which was only added to the banned list on 1 January 2016. Kalvins said: I am quite sure that a lot of athletes at the top level are using mildronate [meldonium] – and they should use mildronate to protect themselves in case of overloading. Because if there is overloading then the cardio muscle, cells will die out because [of the] lack of oxygen there. In the case of using mildronate these cells will survive. And this is like an insurance, insurance that sportsman will not die on the field of their sport event.Kalvins invented the drug in mid-1970s when Latvia was still a Soviet republic. He told local newspaper Diena in 2009 that it had been used to boost troops fighting stamina in the 1980s – at that time Soviet forces were battling insurgents in Afghanistan. Meldonium, which is available cheaply over the counter without a prescription in the Baltic states and Sharapovas native Russia, is normally used to treat heart conditions such as angina. The drug, which is marketed as mildronate by the Latvian pharmaceutical firm Grindeks, is a source of some national pride.But the drug, which boosts blood flow and may enhance athletic performance, was banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) as of 1 January 2016. Sharapova said she received an email about the list of banned drugs but failed to click on the link which listed them. She said her family doctor had first given her the drug 10 years ago after she frequently became sick, had irregular electrocardiogram results, a magnesium deficiency and a family history of diabetes.If Sharapova would not [have] used mildronate for 10 years, probably she would have discontinued her career five years ago, or four years ago or six years ago, who knows? Kalvins said. This is not increasing performance, but insurance that if you will go over your bodys boundaries, you still will be kept healthy, he added.For the health conditions Sharapova says she has, however, doctors say the scientific evidence for mildronate is limited compared with many medicines widely available in Europe and the United States, where Sharapova lives and trains, which have full regulatory backing and years of robust safety and efficacy data. Kalvins says he has not yet seen the scientific, clinically tested proof that mildronate should be banned as doping.If there is no scientific evidence or scientific background, why has it happened after 32 years of being on market as the safest cardio-vascular cardio protector? There is only one other option: there are some political reasons for it, he said.Kirovs Lipmans, chairman of Grindeks and its biggest shareholder, said use of the drug did not constitute doping and he criticised the government for not defending its reputation against Wada. Government officials said Wada was acting independently and they could not influence its decisions.last_img read more

Gold silver prices fall in India on low demand global cues

first_imgGold prices in India dropped for the second consecutive day on Saturday, as did silver. The fall was due to lacklustre demand from jewellers and the overall declining trend in the prices of the yellow metal, reported Press Trust of India. Gold prices fell Rs. 225 down to Rs. 29,575 per 10 gm and silver declined Rs.150 to Rs. 40,200 per kg in the Delhi bullion market, reported the agency. The yellow metal had spurted by Rs. 400 on Thursday to reach a high of Rs. 29,900 per 10 gm before setting off on a losing trend.Despite the fall over the past two days, gold delivered a return of 17.36 percent and silver 21.17 percent based on their closing prices on Jan. 1 and April 22.Meanwhile, the Indian government announced on Friday the formation of a panel to look into problems faced by jewellers over the imposition of the 1 percent excise duty. The panel will be headed by Ashok Lahiri, former chief economic advisor.Other members of the panel include Rohan Shah, legal expert; Manoj Kumar Dwivedi, joint secretary in the department of commerce; Alok Shukla, joint secretary, tax research unit, CBEC and trade representatives.”The Committee shall consider all issues related to compliance procedure for excise duty, records to be maintained, operating procedures and all other relevant issues,” the Indian finance ministry said in a statement.The re-introduction of the excise duty had led to jewellers going on a 19-day strike that was called off on March 19 following assurances by the government.The strike led to a sharp fall of 80 percent in gold imports to $972.96 million on an year-on-year basis in March.last_img read more

Settlement Near In Prison Heat Lawsuit

first_img Listen 00:00 /08:52 Michael HagertyThe Wallace Pack Unit, located about 70 northwest of Houston, near Navasota. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img Share X A class action lawsuit over heat in a Texas prison is likely to be settled after a federal court hearing Tuesday.Houston Chronicle reporter Gabrielle Banks tells Houston Matters the terms of the settlement would require temporary air conditioning units installed at the Wallace Pack Unit near Navasota be replaced by permanent units by May 2020, pending legislative approval. The settlement also resolves several wrongful death and wrongful injury lawsuits and awards $4.5 million to an Austin law firm for trying the case.The Chronicle also learned that Bryan Collier, the executive director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, has proposed creating 26 new definitions of at-risk inmates who are especially susceptible to extreme heat — such as those age 65 or older, or those with diabetes or heart conditions.The original class action lawsuit, filed in 2014, claimed hot conditions at the low-security, 1,400-bed prison of mostly geriatric inmates violated constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment.Tuesday’s proceeding is merely a fairness hearing, where any of the parties in the class action who had a complaint could make a statement in court. Since those parties are prison inmates, Banks says it could make for a chaotic day in court as they make statements via phone.Banks learned some other measures the prison system is taking that aren’t part of the settlement, including plans to relocate at-risk prisoners at 75 uncooled units to 29 prisons already equipped with air conditioning. Such a move could possibly be an effort to stave off future lawsuits from other prisoners, she said.The Texas prison system intends to make use of the 32,000 beds it already has in air conditioned cell blocks but might need additional fencing and other equipment to secure violent offenders. Completing such transfers could take years but would be cheaper than installing air conditioning to old prisons.Banks researched how many other states provide air conditioning for their inmates and how that compares to Texas. She found only five states that provide air conditioning to all state prisoners, while 21 others offer it to at least half their prisoners. Texas is among six states in the South that do not provide cooling for the majority of their state inmates.Banks says officials acknowledge 22 prisoners died from extreme indoor heat over 14 years in prisons from South Texas to Dallas. However, some human rights and health experts who visited Texas prisons estimated the actual number is much higher.last_img read more

Mayor Bowser Turns in FY 2020 Budget Focusing on a Fair Shot

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterMayor Muriel Bowser had a busy week. She turned in one of the most important documents that could impact the District. Nope – not the Mueller Report. The two-term mayor presented her fiscal Year 2020 Budget and Financial Plan to D.C. Council this past week after a season of public engagements, town halls and press events to bolster enthusiasm.“This budget is about ensuring that everyone living and doing business in the District is giving and getting their fair share,” Bowser said in a statement. “This is a budget that advances our D.C. values and addresses our city’s most pressing challenges – a budget that recognizes that these are very good times for Washington, D.C., and asks our commercial property owners to share some of the upside so that we can invest more in keeping D.C. affordable for Washingtonians across the income spectrum.”District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser turned in her fiscal year budget for 2020 to the D.C. Council, with a great deal focusing on affordable housing and continuing her mission of offering Washingtonians a “fair shot.” (Courtesy Photo)“Fair” and “Fair shot” are words the mayor has used for years. The $15.5 billion budget is part of a larger attempt to get at equity for all D.C. residents in key areas like housing, education, families and public safety. And while the District boasts its 24th consecutive balanced budget, it faces a rise in fatal shootings and housing disparities that brought angry protesters during the mayor’s State of the District Address.Housing has been on many people’s minds and Bowser addressed it several times most recently during her address saying: “We know the number one issue on the minds of Washingtonians is affordable housing.”“Rising housing costs have created new challenges for homeowners and renters alike, particularly for those on a fixed income and those who are struggling to make ends meet,” the mayor shared.So how does that commitment toward housing translate in the budget? The mayor’s office highlighted a few areas including:Increasing the District’s investment in the Housing Production Trust Fund by 30 percent to $130 millionIncreasing the District’s investment in the Housing Preservation Fund by 50 percent to $15 million, which will yield an additional $45 million in private investmentThe creation of a new $20 million Workforce Housing Fund, which will leverage another $180 million in private sector investment$37 million in new funds to continue the implementation of Homeward D.C. to make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring$5.2 million to expand and increase Schedule H – DC’s income tax credit to help offset rising property taxesTo make the District safer the Mayor’s office stated they would invest in the following ways.$3 million to expand the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) workforce to 4,000 officers by 2021, focusing on bike and on-foot officers$3.5 million in new funds to add four ambulance units, including 45 firefighter paramedics or firefighter EMTs$3.3 million to bolster the efforts of the Office or Neighborhood Safety and Engagement, including $610,000 to support increased wages for the Pathways program to more participants and grow the reach of the Aspire to Entrepreneurship Program$1.6 million to our Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants to open three new offices where residents can get trauma-informed mental health support and where we can train community leaders in strategies for addressing traumaThe D.C. Council still has to hold oversight hearings on the budget through the spring.  Voting on the budget won’t happen until sometime in June.
