Downtown celebration week starts today

first_imgStatewide— Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs kicked off the second annual Downtown Development Week.“Our downtowns are the heartbeats of our communities and a large part of our residents’ quality of life,” said Crouch. “A thriving downtown corridor is important to a community’s continued development, and we want to celebrate all of the amenities they have to offer.”Launched in 2018, Downtown Development Week is an opportunity for communities across the state to host events and activities within their downtown and commercial districts, spurring economic development and showcasing updates they have made to the downtown spaces. This year, Downtown Development Week runs Monday, October 7 through Saturday, October 12.“Local economies grow when investments are made. People are drawn to local downtowns and are looking for opportunities to grow the sense of community while also having a little fun,” said Jodi Golden, Executive Director of OCRA. “I’m looking forward to visiting a few communities celebrating this week in unique ways.”More than 30 cities and towns have planned events to celebrate their downtowns through a variety of events and activities. Five of those communities were awarded up to a $1,000 grant to help fund the planned activities. An online map is available for viewers to discover events happening in downtowns across the state.

Hoey wins in Moscow

first_img Victory was Hoey’s fifth European Tour title and represented a return to form after missing seven of his previous 10 cuts. Hoey told europeantour.com: “I have absolutely loved the golf course this week. The putting was the key for me. I have been working hard on that a lot recently and the improvement is really showing because I making a lot of birdies. “That is the main difference at this level. You have to be able to make a lot of putts because the standard is so high these days that it usually comes down to who makes the most putts. “It’s pretty amazing to think that I have won five European Tour titles. It is a great feeling to win and every time you do it you just want more and more. Hopefully I can get at least another one before the end of the season. “It has given me a great boost. I am not the most consistent player in the world but when I get into these positions I usually do okay.” Hoey dropped just one shot throughout the day, at the 12th, and his lead was cut to two by Kaleka and Dane JB Hansen. But his birdie at the 17th steadied nerves and Kaleka (bogey) and Hansen (double bogey) both dropped strokes at the last to card 68s. Nixon came home in 33 and signed for a three-under-par 69, finishing tied second with Kaleka a shot ahead of Hansen. Hoey said: “I did feel the pressure a bit today because I wasn’t swinging it as freely as I had done yesterday but I got the job done in the end. “Making my first birdie of the day on the seventh was a bit of a turning point because I had burned a few edges before that and you start to wonder if it is going to be your day.” China’s Liang Wen-chong, Frenchman Gregory Havret and English pair James Morrison and Mark Foster finished in a tie for fifth on 10 under. The 34-year-old, who led by five overnight after a superb 65 in his third round, birdied three more holes to finish comfortably ahead on 16-under-par 272. France’s Alexandre Kaleka, winner of the tournament last year, and Englishman Matthew Nixon were the closest challengers, finishing on 12 under. Northern Ireland’s Michael Hoey shot a final-round 70 to claim a four-stroke victory at the M2M Russian Open in Moscow.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bruce has no issue with Hull name change

first_img Speaking following the 2-0 Barclays Premier League loss at Chelsea, Bruce said: “I think the PR could’ve handled it a bit better. I am a traditionalist. “(But) the money our guys put into Hull City, if he wants us to play in pink and wants to call us something else, then he’s entitled to do it. “I think he just wants to do away with the ‘AFC’. Why, I’m not so sure, maybe it’s a marketing thing in his department.” Asked whether supporters should have been consulted, Bruce added: “Of course. Last year Cardiff changed their colours and there was uproar. They get promoted and is there uproar now? “You’d have to ask him the reason why. I’m a bit of a traditionalist and maybe there’s a reason why. There’s obviously a reason why, maybe he thinks Hull City Tigers is the way forward.” Press Association Allam recently caused a stir when it was revealed he had dropped the ‘AFC’ suffix from the club’s official name after 109 years and would be focusing on marketing the team as the Tigers at home and abroad, leaving many supporters unhappy. Bruce is uncertain of the reason why and pointed to Cardiff’s decision to change their colours from blue to red as a successful rebranding. center_img Hull manager Steve Bruce believes owner Assem Allam is within his rights to make the team play in pink if he so chooses after the controversial name change to Hull City Tigers.last_img read more

Pochettino understands criticism

first_img That style and substance led Spurs to hand the 42-year-old a five-year deal in the summer, although transferring that success to White Hart Lane has proved tougher than many expected. Poor performances and results have led to Pochettino coming under scrutiny, although he believes that will only improve him as a coach. “It’s a good thing to be criticised for a manager,” he said. “Everyone in the world is criticised. “It’s a difficult thing to have all people agree with you and to make everyone happy. Our job is difficult, I understand it. “Sometimes it’s difficult to share the same decisions because we are all referees, we are all managers, we are all journalists, sometimes. “It’s my job. I am calm, I know which is my way, how we need to manage our players and our squad. “It’s true that we need to get results, that’s the most important thing, but we have a clear way, a clear philosophy. We need to develop. “Sometimes difficult moments happen but this is football. Mauricio Pochettino is enjoying the extra criticism and scrutiny brought by the Tottenham job after such a smooth start to life in English football. Press Association “I enjoy this game, the next one on Sunday and try to get three points, which is the most important thing in football.” Stoke arrive in north London this weekend but before that return to domestic action comes a Europa League clash with Asteras Tripolis. Spurs travelled to Greece without a host of key players for Thursday’s match, with Emmanuel Adebayor, Younes Kaboul, Aaron Lennon and Kyle Naughton left out. Nabil Bentaleb and Kyle Walker remain absent through injury for a match which Pochettino expects to be much tougher than the 5-1 win in the reverse fixture a fortnight ago. “Every game is different, a different moment,” he said. “We know Asteras at home is a difficult team, a strong team. “Their supporters are brave and we expect a very, very difficult game. Different, sure, to what we played in London. “It will be a very important game for Asteras Tripolis, but don’t forget we also want the three points.” The former Argentina international arrived in the Barclays Premier League a relative unknown in January 2013, although quickly transformed himself into one of the hottest managerial prospects around. Pochettino led Southampton to their best-ever Premier League finish in his only full campaign at the helm, playing a possession-based, attacking philosophy which impressed many onlookers. last_img read more

Leavey Library offers students computer locks for rent

first_imgStudents working at Leavey Library now have the option of renting computer locks for their laptops at the circulation desk, as part of a pilot project started by USC Libraries to counter theft.Lock down · Michelle Yan, a graduate student who works at Leavey Library, brings out a rental computer lock from behind the counter. – Rachel Bracker | Daily Trojan Students can rent locks and secure their laptops to stations on the second floor to prevent theft, said Hugh McHarg, executive director of communications and public programming at USC Libraries.USC Libraries collaborated with the Undergraduate Student Government in an effort to complement the already extensive array of services offered at the library.“The idea came out of speaking with the Undergraduate Student Government. It wasn’t in response to any particular increase in theft,” McHarg said.The lock will reduce the risk of laptop theft if a student has to leave his laptop unattended while using the bathroom, taking a break or getting some water or coffee, he said.Students will be able to rent the lock for four hours at a time, however, if students wish to use the locks for a longer period of time, they can go to the circulation desk and renew their rental.So far, about 30 students have already rented locks, McHarg said.Avery Berhle, a junior majoring in art history, said the locks would be good for students who study most of the time in Leavey Library.“[The locks] are a great idea, especially during finals,” she said.Sherif Higazy, a freshman majoring in cinema-television production, said he wondered why locks were necessary at the library.“It’s troubling to know that this is enough of an issue to have to put this lock system in place. It seems convenient, but I’m just not accustomed to using a lock yet,” he said.Some students, however, said they are more reluctant to make use of the laptop locks.“I would still be worried even with the lock. It would stop people from stealing my laptop, but they would still be able to open my laptop and use it,” said Tehani De Fonseka, a senior majoring in psychology.McHarg said that if the pilot proves successful, the lock system might be implemented throughout Leavey Library instead of just on the second floor.In addition, student workers would inform people who come into the library with laptops that there are locks located at the circulation desk for their safety and convenience.“We hope people will let us know how the system is working by leaving a comment on the Libraries website,” McHarg said. “We ultimately want to provide tools for a comfortable and safe study environment.”Meghna Sapre, a graduate student studying computer science, said she also approves of the lock rental system.“It would allow me to leave my things unattended if I had to run to the bathroom,” Sapre said.last_img read more

“Previous experience will help Ghana in AFCON 2019”- Gerard Nus

first_imgFormer Black Stars video analyst, Gerard Nus, has called on the team’s management to pick lessons from previous AFCON campaigns if the Stars will be successful this year in Egypt.Ghana is hoping to end its 39-year wait for an AFCON title and the tournament in Egypt presents another chance to do so.Nus, who worked with the team in 2015 and 2017, says relying on knowledge from past tournaments will prove key for Ghana in Egypt.“Even though I am not with the team anymore, I believe that the GFA should learn and take notes from the previous tournaments and learn from them.All the lessons should guide them to help them put new things in place. There is a new technical staff and new players and so, there is the need to take all the experiences from those who have been at AFCON tournaments and add some new perspectives.I believe that these things will help put Ghana closer to winning the title.”The Black Stars head into their pre-tournament camp in Abu Dhabi on June 1 where head coach Kwesi Appiah will choose 23 players from the 29 he has named in the provisional squad for the tournament.last_img read more
