I’ll say that.”“Are you a Packers fan?” Nolan asks.“Yeah,” Jordan says. “So, one of my best friends in the world, David Bakhtiari, is his left tackle.”That’s…an interesting answer, to say the least.What’s going on with the Rodgers’ brothers?[FTW]last_img read more

Baseball Jalen Washingtons transition to shortstop to benefit team

Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsIn January, things do not seem to be too busy around Bill Davis Stadium, home of the Ohio State baseball team. With the first game of the season not until Feb. 17, when the Buckeyes face off against Kansas State in Osceola, Florida, the players are still participating in the occasional workout and batting cage session. However, with every crack of the bat and smack of the catcher’s mitt, OSU is in the middle of one of the most integral parts of any season: creating a team identity.Senior and returning captain Jalen Washington is familiar with having to help build a team chemistry. Now as he moves from behind the plate to the shortstop, the leadership aspect of his game does not seem to be going anywhere.Ever since Washington first stepped foot onto the OSU campus, he felt he had something to prove.“Like freshman or sophomore year, I wasn’t as much of a vocal leader,” Washington said. “I was one that was always pushing the envelope trying to prove myself, trying to make a name for myself and lead by example — working my butt off on the field and off the field.”With work came reward for Washington who was named as a captain of the team heading into his junior season and even before he had played on a regular basis.“He had never been a starter before,” OSU coach Greg Beals said. “That says an awful lot about what his teammates think about him and says an awful lot about his work ethic and what he does.”This was not the only thing that made Washington stand out to his teammates and the coaching staff. It was also his ability to play all over the diamond if needed to.“Pretty much in summer ball and in high school, they used to put me at different positions every year,” Washington said. “I feel like it has always been a tool that I have had and being able to show it off on this big a stage is a pretty cool thing.”Washington’s versatility is what caused Beals to put him behind the plate to see what he could do as a catcher.“I was really intrigued by the possibility, being a catching guy myself, of working with someone of that athleticism, somebody that really hadn’t done a lot of catching before, but was a good athlete, and see if we can teach him the skills of catching,” Beals said. “I also believe that the catching position is becoming more of an athletic, a quicker, lower to the ground type of guy as opposed to the bigger, big, sturdy, strong catchers that used to be the prototype.”Washington started to perfect the art of being a leader behind the plate out of necessity.“Being a catcher is more that just catching and throwing the ball,” Washington said. “You’re the leader of the team. Everyone is looking at you.”Without ever starting a game at catcher going into the 2016 season, Washington had a .992 fielding percentage  and threw out 27 percent of potential base stealers, while also being named to the Johnny Bench Award watch list, just the fifth time a OSU catcher has been named to this list. However, his offensive approach did not match the normal stereotypical catcher.“The skill set of being an athlete is different because in that skill set, it also allows him to be a bunt guy and a run guy on the offensive side,” Beals said. “That’s very different than your normal catching prospect.”Going into the 2017 season, Beals had a different idea for how to maximize Washington’s ability for this team. He will move to shortstop with sophomore catchers Jacob Barnwell and Andrew Fishel taking the reps behind the plate, something that is not a very common move in baseball.“To go from catcher to shortstop, you don’t hear that very often,” Beals said. “It speaks volumes to Jalen’s athletic ability, his versatility as an athlete.”Washington is very proud of his flexibility on the baseball field. His work around the diamond sets him apart from many other players at the college level.“I think that it shows that I have more tools than the other guys do and I’m a little bit more versatile,” Washington said. “Being a catcher, you can show your hands and your feet, but being at shortstop, I can show more athleticism.”With the move to the infield, Washington moves from having to lead the pitcher through his outing to leading the infield. Redshirt junior pitcher Adam Niemeyer said he believes Washington’s knowledge of the game will create a smooth transition.“Last year, he did a great job controlling the game behind the plate,” Niemeyer said. “You know, being in sync with a pitcher is being on the same page. This year, moving to shortstop, really just shows how intelligent he is at the game of baseball and how he can kind of handle doing two totally different positions and do them both very well.”Moving out of the crouch, Washington can now extend his offensive ability, especially on the bases. Last season, he stole 14 bases on 19 opportunities. With the move to shortstop, Washington feels as though that his base running ability will increase dramatically.“When you are catching three, four games a weekend, your legs are pretty worn out,” Washington said. “I see myself as a base stealer, so I feel like I’ll be able to steal more bases, put our offense in better positions to have success.”No matter where Washington will be playing for this OSU team, Beals said he believes Washington will be an integral part of where the Buckeyes will end up at the end of the 2017 season and why.“Our cultural blueprint that we have for our team, one of the last sentences on it is, ‘work to earn trust every day,’ and Jalen Washington does that,” Beals said. “He works extremely hard and he has earned the trust of his teammates.” read more

Ohio State footballs offense operated at probably 60 percent last season

In a corporate-like manner, running backs coach Stan Drayton explained how the Ohio State football team’s offense still hasn’t reached its potential. Based on his calculation, it’s really not even close. “We operated at probably about 60 percent last year,” Drayton said. In most contexts, it’s a figure hardly associated as a passing grade and arguably less than a fitting one for an offense that averaged 37 points per game. If functioning at only 60 percent, though, the Buckeyes weren’t half bad last year. In its first undefeated season since 2002, OSU’s revitalized offense ranked 21st out of 124 Football Bowl Subdivision teams in scoring offense en route to a total of 446 points. In particular, it was the Buckeyes’ ground game that breathed life into such success. Under the direction of coach Urban Meyer, OSU’s 10th-ranked rushing offense averaged 242 yards rushing behind the steady legs of rising junior quarterback Braxton Miller and rising senior running back Carlos Hyde. Miller ran the ball for 1,271 yards and 13 touchdowns while Hyde ran for 970 yards and 16 scores. The duo proved potent throughout OSU’s 2012 campaign, but Drayton said tape of last year reveals a clear weakness. “Here’s the deal: when you sit there and you study our film, you see safeties sitting there at eight yards because (Hyde and Miller) are in the backfield,” he said. Why? He said it stems from the lack of a consistent aerial attack. “The moment we are able to pose a pass threat, those safeties can’t sit at eight yards around the box,” Drayton said, “they’re going to have to play defense and play some coverage.” At times, Miller and the Buckeyes found ways to air the ball out. But collectively, OSU finished 105th in passing yards per game. It’s why in addition to developing the team’s relatively young receiving corps, OSU is trying to mold rising redshirt senior running back Jordan Hall into a hybrid type of player – one who can attack opposing defenses with his prowess for not only running the ball, but catching it in space as well. “We have a lot of playmakers on offense, first off. I think I can just be another one, another person the defense has to prepare for,” Hall said. Touted as likely the starting running back heading into 2012, Hall missed nine games last year with a torn PCL before being granted a medical redshirt for the 2013 season. The Jeannette, Pa., native, who served as captain last season, said he’s trying to embrace what the coaching staff wants him to be. But even Hall said his role is mysterious to him as it is to those trying to figure out what impact he could have on this year’s squad. “I really don’t know to be honest … I’m really trying to figure it out for myself, too,” Hall said. “I knew everything at running back and, right now, I’m still trying to learn this position.” Still, Hall said it’s a position that accentuates his skill set. “Usually when you catch the ball as a receiver, there’s two people to make miss,” he said. “And as a running back, you got to run through D-line, linebackers, safeties.” For OSU, the man trucking through defenses’ lines of resistance is Hyde, who came back to Columbus after flirting with the possibility of jumping to the NFL. “I thought about it, yeah. But then I really thought hard, and I was like, I want to come back, you know?” said Hyde, who started at running back last season. “I want to come back and get that 1,000 yards, you know, and raise that crystal ball, so why not?” The move could pay dividends for an OSU team trying to improve its aerial attack but maintain a steady punch with the running game. “Once we get that balance in our offense, we’re hoping it to be very explosive here,” Drayton said. It could be the difference in the Buckeyes’ chase for a Big Ten and national championship. read more

Baseball Ohio State drops a pair of games in road series against

Ohio State junior starting pitcher Connor Curlis delivers a pitch Friday night against Nebraska in Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Mac Connor | Ohio State AthleticsThe Ohio State baseball team (20-10, 3-3 Big Ten) lost two out of the three games against Iowa (19-10, 5-3 Big Ten) on the road to fall to an even .500 record in Big Ten play.Game 1The two teams were locked in a pitcher’s duel in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader, with Ohio State Friday night starter Connor Curlis giving way to top reliever Seth Kinker after 6.2 innings of one-run pitching. Kinker finished off the Hawkeyes for his seventh save of the season, and the Buckeyes notched a 2-1 win.Iowa matched Ohio State’s best pitcher with its ace, sending redshirt junior Nick Allgeyer to the mound to start. Sophomore reliever and infielder Grant Judkins finished the Buckeyes off with three shutout innings.Ohio State’s only two runs were recorded in the fourth inning when senior left fielder Tyler Cowles drove home senior first baseman Noah McGowan on an RBI single. Junior designated hitter Jacob Barnwell followed with a single that scored freshman catcher Dillon Dingler to give the Buckeyes a 2-1 lead.Game 2A perfect storm of good offense by the Hawkeyes and poor defense by the Buckeyes thundered upon Iowa City, Iowa, in the bottom of the first inning in the second game of Saturday’s double header.Iowa recorded seven runs in the chaos, although only two of them were earned due to throwing errors by shortstop Kobie Foppe and third baseman Conner Pohl. It was all the momentum the Hawkeyes needed for a 9-5 win.Sophomore third baseman Lorenzo Elion recorded the first of his three RBIs in the outpouring.McGowan was the lone bright spot for Ohio State, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and three RBIs. His final RBI came in the top of the ninth to bring the lead back down to four runs, but Pohl grounded out to end the last chance for a Buckeye rally.Junior starting pitcher Ryan Feltner started for Ohio State and pitched four innings with seven runs, two of them earned. His record moved to 3-2 on the year.Game 3  Ohio State and Iowa found themselves in another pitcher’s duel Sunday, with junior starter Cole McDonald and junior reliever Zach Daniels leading the Hawkeyes to a 2-1 victory.With the game tied at one in the bottom of the eighth inning, Iowa strung together a two-out rally with a walk, single and eventual game-winning RBI double by Judkins.Ohio State redshirt senior pitcher Adam Niemeyer started and pitched five innings, allowing one unearned run. Redshirt senior reliever Kyle Michalik was issued the loss (0-1) after giving up the eighth-inning run.Ohio State totalled four hits, with its lone RBI coming from McGowan. read more

AK LNG Releases Gasline Workforce Plan

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation released their ‘Gasline Workforce Plan‘  which outlines training and educating an Alaskan workforce with the skills necessary to build and operate the Alaska LNG Project. The Alaska LNG Project Gasline Workforce Plan was unanimously approved by the Workforce Board in Seward last week. Governor Bill Walker: “Alaskans know how to build infrastructure, and state funding for public projects should employ Alaskans first.” AGDC Commissioner Heidi Drygas: “Construction of the Alaska LNG Project is hugely important to Alaska’s economy. Not only will construction provide thousands of jobs for Alaskans, but operating the Alaska LNG project will keep Alaskans working for decades to come.” The Alaska LNG Project, estimated at $43 billion, would involve an 807-mile pipeline, along with a gas treatment plant and LNG liquefaction plant, designed to move more than 20 million tons of natural gas per year. It focuses on six areas of opportunity, including training and technical education, developing apprenticeships, increasing the number of students and instructors in necessary fields, and focusing on Alaska Hire and Alaska Bidder preferences. Construction is expected to begin as early as 2019, with gas delivered by 2024-2025last_img read more

Researchers find earliest use of flowers in burial rite

first_img More information: Earliest floral grave lining from 13,700–11,700-y-old Natufian burials at Raqefet Cave, Mt. Carmel, Israel, PNAS, Published online before print July 1, 2013, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1302277110AbstractFlowering plants possess mechanisms that stimulate positive emotional and social responses in humans. It is difficult to establish when people started to use flowers in public and ceremonial events because of the scarcity of relevant evidence in the archaeological record. We report on uniquely preserved 13,700–11,700-y-old grave linings made of flowers, suggesting that such use began much earlier than previously thought. The only potentially older instance is the questionable use of flowers in the Shanidar IV Neanderthal grave. The earliest cemeteries (ca. 15,000–11,500 y ago) in the Levant are known from Natufian sites in northern Israel, where dozens of burials reflect a wide range of inhumation practices. The newly discovered flower linings were found in four Natufian graves at the burial site of Raqefet Cave, Mt. Carmel, Israel. Large identified plant impressions in the graves include stems of sage and other Lamiaceae (Labiatae; mint family) or Scrophulariaceae (figwort family) species; accompanied by a plethora of phytoliths, they provide the earliest direct evidence now known for such preparation and decoration of graves. Some of the plant species attest to spring burials with a strong emphasis on colorful and aromatic flowers. Cave floor chiseling to accommodate the desired grave location and depth is also evident at the site. Thus, grave preparation was a sophisticated planned process, embedded with social and spiritual meanings reflecting a complex preagricultural society undergoing profound changes at the end of the Pleistocene. The display and use of flowers as part of burial rituals is common throughout the modern world, but scientists have found it difficult to learn more about the roots of such practices due to the temporal nature of plants. In this new effort, the research team working at the Raqefet Cave—part of a larger archeological site—found flower impressions preserved in a layer of dried mud beneath the bodies of 29 skeletons. Closer examination of the impressions showed them to be from mint, figwort, and sage plants. Additional testing of the soil in which they were found showed elevated levels of phytoliths—crystals made by such plants.Because the cave floor was chiseled to make the grave sites flat, the researchers concluded that the mud layer on top of each of them was placed intentionally. Flowers were then laid down to create a bed upon which the deceased person was laid. Pressure from the weight of the body on the flowers caused some of them to be pushed into the mud causing impressions. Carbon dating indicates the flowers and skeletons were put in place between 13,700 and 11,700 years ago—marking the earliest known use of flowers as part of burial rituals.
