Wellsville beat Franklin, 74-57.By PAUL GOTHAMROCHESTER, N.Y. — Wellsville head coach Raymie Auman has been encouraging Joe Tronetti to take more shots. It appears the senior guard comprehended the message some time during the second quarter of Monday’s non-league matchup.Tronetti drilled a pair of triples and scored 12 points in the second stanza when the Lions turned a one-point deficit into a seven-point halftime lead en route to a 74-57 victory over Franklin.“I’ve been preaching to Joe for four years about what a green light is,” Auman said referring to the license he has given Tronetti when it comes to shooting. “It took 12 games into his senior year to figure it out. Joe’s a very unselfish player. Tonight he just went after it.”After hitting Colin Cook with a hi-lo feed from the free throw line, Tronetti scored the next eight points of the second quarter.He started with a catch-and-shoot trey from the top of the key and followed with an early heat check  a few off the line. Tronetti gave Wellsville a 34-27 lead when he curled off a screen for a catch-and-finish in the lane.“That’s what that kid can do,” Auman added. “What ends up happening is it just opens up everyone else. There are not many players who can do things like that. A lot of times if you’re an unselfish kid, you feel like ‘man I’m taking all these shots.’ But really what ends up happening is guys are getting offensive rebounds.”Tronetti opened the second half with two more triples. The second of which gave Wellsville its first double-digit advantage of the night at 48-37.“In the beginning, we weren’t doing anything,” the 6-foot-1 guard said of the first quarter. “We weren’t getting any shots. I just knew I had to take over. I just wanted to win.“I know that my teammates have my back. I just let stuff fly. I know they’re going to get O-boards. I’m confident because I know they can get the O-board if I miss.”Last time the two teams met, Wellsville built a 17-point lead before needing a Max Jusianiec 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Quakers, 55-52.Monday night was different.Wellsville seized the double-digit advantage, and Franklin did not cut the margin to single digits again.“Offensively, we didn’t take the foot off the gas,” Auman said. “That’s one of the problems we’ve had. When they came down to our place, we had a 17-point lead. Then we tried to slow the game down. It almost played into their hands. Today, I just said ‘guys were going to keep attacking.’ We don’t need to slow it down. We turned that into buckets. That made a big deal for us.”Alec Acampora and Aiden Cook scored 10 apiece for Wellsville (9-4). Jusianiec added nine points to go with his 12 rebounds and eight assists.  Cook scored eight and grabbed 11 rebounds. Jimmy McKinley had eight points.Tronetti finished with a game-high 27. He handed out five assists and corralled seven rebounds.“I was happy to see him break out,” Auman stated. “I hope we see it for another 15 games or however many we have left.”Franklin’s Brandon Moore scored eight of his team-high 24 points in the first quarter when the two teams traded leads and ties. Moore connected twice behind the arc in the first eight minutes. Devonte Goins and Anthony Smith added a trey apiece in the first.“They shot the ball really well in the beginning of the game,” Auman noted. “We had to make an adjustment to that. We started helping from the baseline and the block instead of the guard spot. That really kind of isolated them outside.“We picked up our energy in the second half as well. I thought we had a better energy to us, a better stance, better communication.”Smith scored 11 for Franklin (3-8). Tyron House had eight, and Goins seven. Kentonio Kelly (6), Marcher Spencer (2) and Teriq Johnson (1) rounded out the scoring for Franklin.

The Jungle, Immersive Play Charting the Refugee Experience, Sets Next Stop at San Francisco’s Curran

first_img View Comments On the heels of acclaimed, sold-out engagements in London and New York, Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson’s immersive play The Jungle will make its West Coast debut at San Francisco’s Curran Theater this spring. Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin direct the production, set to run from March 26 through May 19.”The Jungle was a reluctant home for thousands of people from all over the world. It was a place where people built temporary lives and communities formed out of necessity. People who visited asked why we built a theater in a refugee camp, but it’s always seemed clear to us that theater should be at the center of the conversation,” said Murphy and Robertson. “We’re thrilled to bring this play to West Coast audiences with its premiere at the historic Curran and look forward to sharing these timely and important stories.”The Jungle tells stories of loss, fear, community and hope amid the creation of France’s Calais camp and its eventual destruction. The majority of the New York cast will transfer with the production, including actors from refugee backgrounds, some of whom came through the Jungle. Full casting will be announced soon.The production team includes costume designer Catherine Kodicek, lighting designer Jon Clark and sound designer Paul Arditti, with original music by John Pfumojena.last_img read more

UVM to continue existing COVID testing protocols

first_imgUniversity of Vermont,University of Vermont This email was sent to all UVM students at 1:42 p.m. and shared with faculty and staff at 1:48 on September 16. The university will continue its existing testing protocols. Dear students,Yesterday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, joined Vermont Governor Phil Scott’s press conference to thank Vermonters for being a model of how to reopen an economy and our schools in a “safe and prudent way.” This high praise would not have been possible without the care that our UVM community has taken to commit to the health and safety of our entire community by signing the Green and Gold Promise, using face coverings, honoring our social distancing requirements, and complying with testing and health screening. I realize how challenging this is, especially for you our students. The university and our state owe you our thanks.Throughout this challenging time, the university has been guided by science and commonsense; both have served us well. We are now moving to a time where science is telling us we need to be even more diligent in our efforts to maintain the positive outcomes we have enjoyed to this point. We know that our expectations for your behavior can lead to fatigue and a tendency to let your guard down. The weather is changing and as the colder air moves in the tendency is to ‘hunker down’ inside, where social distancing is harder to maintain. And, the flu season is right around the corner.As you know, our COVID testing protocol(link is external) was designed based on advice from our own public health and infectious disease experts. I asked our experts to review the data from the first month of testing and offer their best guidance about the future. Based on their counsel, we will continue existing protocols:  All students who are not entirely remote are required to continue to receive PCR testing(link is external) every seven days. This requirement will remain in place until November 1, at which time we will revisit the results to date with our medical expert panel again. In addition, our medical experts strongly urge our students, faculty and staff to get this year’s flu vaccine. Flu vaccines will be available to students at the testing center.Dr. Fauci warned us to not be complacent, particularly as the weather begins to change. Our own UVM experts have reinforced that message. Let’s stay diligent in following the Green and Gold Promise(link is external), bundle up and enjoy the beautiful outside even as the weather changes, and don’t forget to get your flu vaccine. Let’s continue to provide a positive example to the rest of the nation, and keep UVM Strong.Commending you for your cooperation, and with thanks,Suresh____________________Suresh Garimella PresidentUniversity of Vermontlast_img read more

After being close to joining Tottenham, Frenchman now ‘arousing interest’ of…

first_imgOne of the Championship sides who scouted in Europe the most, Fulham will already have a list of targets ready to go for, compiled depending on which league they found themselves in next season.L’Equipe believe that one of the targets, and one who may have been suitable for either Championship or Premier League, is Lamine Fonda. The French newspaper report the 20 year old has previously come close to signing for Tottenham.Before signing his first professional contract with Auxerre, Fonda was the subject of a serious approach from Spurs and nearly signed for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.Deciding to continue with Auxerre at that time, a change could be on the cards this summer, and L’Equipe say the midfielder has ‘aroused the interest’ of Fulham.There’s no slant on whether Tottenham will come back in for him.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia我們現正尋找希望使用市面上最新幾乎隱形的助聽器的香港試用者。限50歲以上*聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this treasure is impossible!

After directors object, Sony changes plan to sell “clean” versions of movies

first_imgSony Pictures(LOS ANGELES) — Sony Pictures has relented — at least partially — on its plan to offer consumers “clean versions” of previously released movies.Last week, Sony announced that it would make its cleaned-up broadcast TV or airline versions of 24 movies available to consumers who purchase films on various download and streaming sites.  But that plan faced strong objections from some filmmakers and from the Directors Guild of America, reported Variety. “Directors have the right to edit their feature films for every non-theatrical platform, plain and simple,” the Guild said, adding that releasing a cut made for one platform on another violates the Guild’s agreement with the studio.Judd Apatow, producer of one movie on Sony’s list, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, had particularly not-clean words for the plan on Twitter, writing, “This is absolute bulls*** and @sony and @SonyPictures is gonna get hell for F****** with our movies. Shove the clean versions up your a****!”On Wednesday, Sony announced a change in its plans, saying the studio won’t sell clean versions of the movies against directors’ wishes.“Our directors are of paramount importance to us and we want to respect those relationships to the utmost,” Man Jit Singh, president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment said in a statement to Variety on Wednesday. “We believed we had obtained approvals from the filmmakers involved for use of their previously supervised television versions as a value added extra on sales of the full version. But if any of them are unhappy or have reconsidered, we will discontinue it for their films.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Juventus FC have ditched their age old black and white stripes in their new home kit for 2018-2019 season, the colours that were originally the courtesy of English side Notts County FC back in 1903, who are now hoping that the Bianconeri will return the favour.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Shutterstock/WikipediaThe National League side, currently under financial struggles, are yet to receive the fresh batch of kits from Puma, with whom they are under contract since 2017, and are ready to ask Juventus to help get the new kits for the upcoming season.The Turin based club were primary users of the colour pink on their kits. But to avoid mismatch with Serie A side Palermo, the club adopted the famous zebra stripes of the Magpies, courtesy to one English footballer John Savage who was a Juventus player.Advertisement Cut back to 116 years later, Alan Hardy’s club has been under an economic meltdown, and is seeking aid from their century old Italian mates.Nottingham South’s MP, British Labour Party’s Lilian Greenwood is set to write to Maurizio Sarri’s side for the Meadow Lane club’s aid within this week.Advertisement “Ever since Notts gave Juventus their black and white stripes back in 1903, there has been a real history and affinity between the clubs,” she said in an interview with NJottinghamshire Live.“With the crisis that is currently happening at Notts County, and the fact the players are still wearing old kit, writing to Juventus seemed like a good idea  to see if they could help out.“What a fantastic gesture it would be if, 116 years later, they could return the favour and assist Notts in getting new shirts for next season.

Pensions won’t be nationalised: Manuel

first_img30 June 2008South Africa’s workforce need not cash in their provident fund savings out of fear that the government will nationalise the funds, says Finance Minister Trevor Manuel.Manuel’s statement comes after certain service providers warned their clients to cash in their savings, claiming that the government was threatening to seize them.“Since the announcement of the reform of retirement funds in the national budget in February, service providers have told people that government is going to nationalise pensions and is going to take away your savings, so you will only get the statutory state old age pension when you retire,” Manuel told reporters in Pretoria last week.“It would be reckless, impossible and unconstitutional that any one of us would agree with the confiscation of the savings of working people.”Manuel said he had heard that workers were withdrawing their savings, and that some were going so far as to resign from their jobs in order to cash in their pensions.He was accompanied by Social Development Minister Zola Skweyiya and several trade union leaders.Savings levels ‘too low’Skweyiya said he was concerned that these withdrawals would impact on the workers themselves and their families as they approach retirement, and that it would impact on the country, as savings levels are already too low.“The government and trade unions share a commitment to improve the living standards of our people and we want to collaborate in working towards this objective,” he said.“Part of this commitment is to ensure that all workers are able to live a better life when they retire than live in dire poverty in old age.”Report ‘unscrupulous individuals’Skweyiya called on all shop stewards and trustees of pension and provident funds to report these “unscrupulous individuals and service providers” to trade union offices, government and regulatory agencies.He said that some government departments and the trade unions would embark on road shows to visit factory floors around the country, and ensure that shop stewards and workers were prevented by being misled.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
