NBA free agent rumors: Bucks signing Kyle Korver to 1-year-deal

first_imgAccording to the ESPN report, Korver had a “tough decision” choosing between the 76ers and the Bucks, but his relationship with Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer played a factor. Budenholzer coached Korver in Atlanta from 2013 through 2016 when he made an All-Star team and had some of the best years of his career. In honor of the Bucks getting Kyle Korver, let’s throw it back to the time Korver dropped 11 points in 1 minute against the Bucks.— Dante 🐻 (@GrindfatherSZN) July 20, 2019Korver split time between the Cavaliers and Jazz last season, averaging 8.6 points per game.

Tips From Tumwater Automotive: Primary Fluids Keep Your Vehicle Safe And…

first_imgFacebook7Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Brett Hardcastle, Tumwater Automotive and Tumwater Auto SpaYour vehicle uses several types of fluids to operate safely and efficiently.Two of the primary fluids are motor oil and coolant (antifreeze).That’s why these two critical fluids are monitored on your instrument panel.Motor oil cools your engine, seals your engine from dirt, lubricates to prevent wear, and keeps impurities like moisture in suspension. If you lose your oil pressure you may only have a few seconds to shut your engine down before major damage occurs. Motor oils have additives that burn off with use, especially at high temperatures. Failure to change your oil in many vehicles causes sludge. Not maintaining your oil within your owner’s manual recommended limits can get expensive – very expensive!!!Your engine coolant, also known as anti-freeze, comes in at a very close second place in importance to your oil. If your engine overheats, turn off the engine before damage occurs. Your engine coolant plays a critical part in removing heat from your engine. There is enough heat in your engine cylinders to actually melt the metal in your engine. The only reason your engine does not melt down or seize up is because your coolant is so great at removing that heat quickly from critical areas. It is the job of your radiator, water pump, hoses and thermostat to control and move this critical fluid properly so it can do its job the way the vehicle designers intended. Any flaw in this system can put you and your vehicle on the side of the road with steam coming out from under the hood.Failure to keep your coolant fresh and vital can be costly to your engine. Ask your shop the cost of a new or rebuilt engine and/or internal parts and you’ll find out about the saying,, “…ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure.”So, if you see your engine temperature gauge go up higher than it usually does, see the engine heat light come on or see other signs like steam from under the hood of your vehicle get it looked at right away. Stop as soon as it is safe to do so and call for help or a tow truck.Warm summer temperature damage can show up later in the cold of winter. Check your vehicle NOW for safe fall and winter driving.

Mathnasium of Olympia Shares Six Fun Math Holidays

first_imgFacebook14Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Jennifer Chevalier for Mathnasium of OlympiaAt Mathnasium of Olympia, we understand that math has an unfair reputation for being a bit dull. We know that those who love math know it can be just as fascinating as any other subject out there, and our students who attend our tutoring sessions and other programs have realized how fun math can be! After years of sitting in a “boring” math class, many students have just lost interest in learning about it, but all is not lost! There are ways to rediscover its beguiling charm.Arianna, a student, and Alec, a staff memeber, work on math together while playing a game at Mathnaisum of Olympia. Photo credit: MathnasiumThere was a time when math wasn’t frustrating. Do you remember first grade? Learning to add was fun, especially when candy was used to show how groups can be combined. To revive that child-like excitement of learning math, Mathnasium of Olympia celebrates historic mathematical truths and the people who discovered them. Math classes around the world set aside days to recognize these achievements. These fun holidays can get even the most reluctant of individuals to enjoy celebrating some of the fundamentals of math.e Day, February 7. While not as well-known as Pi, e is also an irrational number that occurs naturally in mathematics. Discovered by a number of mathematicians, it’s used to solve exponential and logarithmic functions. The rough numerical equivalent of e is 2.7, making the logical day to celebrate it February 7th. As to how you celebrate e Day, well, that’s up to you. You can only eat foods that start with e, read the poetry of E.E. Cummings, watch the E! Network or just do some fun math related to e.World Maths Day, March 1. To Americans, the plural looks funny, but it is named this way for the true global nature of the holiday.  Its aim is to get people excited about math and interested in math-related jobs or fields of study. Celebrate by playing math games!Pi Day is appropriately held on 3.14 and is often celebrated with some real pie as well as fun math problems involving the number. Photo courtesy: MathnasiumPi Day, March 14. This holiday recognizes the mathematical constant of Pi, often rounded to 3.14, the date of the holiday! Pi can be celebrated by enjoying the wonders of Pi through math, watching the classic Darren Aronofsky movie Pi, eating some actual pie, or viewing some Pi-inspired art.Math 2.0 Day, July 8. This holiday celebrates the intersection of math and technology. Without math, we wouldn’t have much of the technology in our world like cars, computers, tv, or even buildings! It was created to bring awareness to the importance of math literacy and education. On July 8th, spend your day using math programs, attending tech lectures and appreciating the subject on the web.Mole Day, October 23. Mole Day celebrates Avagadro’s number (6.02×1023). This number is a basic unit of measurement in chemistry. The holiday is celebrated on October 23rd from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m. It is a celebration of puns! Use mole sauce, play whack-a-mole, and practice your mole-related jokes. The National Mole Day Foundation issues themes for each year. They haven’t yet released the 2018 theme, but the theme for 2017 was was “The MOLE-vengers.” It has also been “May the MOLES be with You,” “Molar Eclipse,” “Ride the Molercoaster,” and “Remember the Alamole.”Fibonacci Sequence Day, November 23. This is a math holiday that scientists and artists should celebrate. The Fibonacci Sequence is a sequence of numbers that creates a spiral. The beginning of the sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3 which is why it’s celebrated November 23. It is frequently found in nature where spirals exist (pine cone or sunflower). Celebrate by going to the beach to collect shells, taking a walk in the forest and spot spirals in nature, drawing a spiral, making a mural, or eating chocolate swirl ice cream.About the AuthorJennifer Chevalier has been an educator for almost 30 years.  She is the owner of Mathnasium of Olympia, a math learning and tutoring center, where they teach students the math they don’t know, working with students of all ages to help them catch up, keep up and get ahead.last_img read more

COVID-19 Cases Rise, Governor Closes Parks

first_imgLooking to New Jersey interstate and toll roads, the governor has called for increased weight limits for trucks carry COVID-19 relief supplies, from the usual 40 tons to 46 tons. The state has the flexibility to do so because of the major disaster declaration it received from the federal government. Additionally, tighter regulations are now in effect for essential retail stores. All customers and employees must wear face coverings. The number of customers in these stores must be limited to 50 percent of the approved capacity. Stores must provide special shopping hours for high-risk individuals and must erect physical barriers between customers, cashiers and baggers. That includes the closure of all county and state parks, a voting date change, the halt of nonessential construction and more. “Our democracy cannot be a casualty of COVID-19. We want to ensure that every voter can vote without endangering their health or their safety.” This article originally appeared in the April 9th, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. And that is a reality wecannot escape for sometime, said Murphy. MANUEL J. ALVAREZ Thompson Park in the Lincroft section of Middletown, along with all other county parks, is closed until further notice. Gov. Phil Murphy ordered all state and county parks closed April 7 to strengthen social distancing practices. By Allison Perrine Earlier in the week, Murphy ordered the indefinite closing of state public schools and canceled statewide assessments. That includes the student assessment requirement for graduation this year, which means 13,000 current high school seniors will no longer be required to submit a portfolio appeal to graduate. As of Wednesday afternoon, there were 47,437 known positive cases state- wide, an increase of 3,088 overnight. Of that total, there have been 1,504 deaths related to the disease, an increase of 275 overnight. All nonessential construction has been shut down throughout New Jersey, which took effect Wednesday at 8 p.m. According to Murphy, that does not include construction projects on hospitals and schools, in the transportation and utility sector, the building of affordable housing or housing sites that can adhere to strict limits on the number of workers on the site at any time, emergency repairs and other “limited instances.” “It is still increasing, so with all due respect to this notion that we’ve found some plateau – we’re not at any plateau,” said Murphy. “And when the time comes that we can begin to put this emergency in the rearview mirror… we cannot think that we’re going to be able to get back to normal all at once. It’s going to take time to reopen our state and indeed our country, in a systematic and careful way to protect against a boomerang of coronavirus.” “No municipality or county may impose additional restrictions of their own on essential retail businesses. This is one set of rules for everyone in New Jersey,” said Murphy. NEW JERSEY – Social distancing regulations continue to tighten as the number of positive statewide cases of COVID-19 approaches 50,000 and the death toll rises, the governor reported Wednesday afternoon, April 8. “We have been in this now for 20 days. Twenty days ago, all New Jersey schools were ordered to close and I asked that the education community give itself some grace,” said Lamont Repollet, the commissioner of the Department of Education Tuesday in response to Murphy’s executive actions. “Adjusting to these unprecedented times requires unprecedented acts of leadership and humanity. I’m extremely proud of, and impressed by, the education community and parents for meeting these complex challenges.” In Monmouth County, there were 3,042 known positive cases as of April 8. In the Two River area, that includes 10 in Atlantic Highlands, 41 in Colts Neck, 15 in Fair Haven, 11 in Highlands, 100 in Holmdel, 24 in Little Silver, 254 in Middletown, 12 in Monmouth Beach, 32 in Oceanport, 60 in Red Bank, 23 in Rumson, eight in Sea Bright, 21 in Shrewsbury Borough and 51 in Tinton Falls. With social distancing regulations still in place, Murphy signed executive orders moving the state’s primary elections from Tuesday, June 2 to Tuesday, July 7. The decision was made so that if the public health crisis improves, voting can hopefully be done in-person. If it does not improve, it will allow the state additional time to prepare for a statewide vote-by-mail election, which has never happened. last_img read more


first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 12, 2015)–On a warm but picturesque morning at Santa Anita, Triple Crown Champion American Pharoah galloped 1 ¼ miles as trainer Bob Baffert also overlooked serious drills from reigning Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Bayern and this year’s Santa Anita Derby victor, Dortmund.Zayat Stables’ American Pharoah, idle since running a gallant second in the Grade I Travers Stakes at Saratoga Aug. 29, went to the main track for the third consecutive day as he backtracked with regular exercise rider George Alvarez to the three furlong pole and then engaged in a strong mile and a quarter gallop at 6:40 a.m.American Pharoah Link: Shah’s Dortmund, third in the Kentucky Derby and idle since running fourth in the Preakness May 16, came on the track shortly before 7 a.m. and broke off 2 ½ lengths behind stablemate Holiday Camp at the half mile pole and registered an impressive half mile work in 47 flat under Martin Garcia, according to Baffert.  (He was given an official work time of 59.20 for five furlongs).  Baffert also  had the chestnut colt by Big Brown galloping out five panels in 59.60 and six furlongs in 1:12.60.Dortmund Link:’s Bayern, who is pointing for the Grade I Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita on Sept. 26, worked immediately following the main track renovation at 6:30, breaking off on his own with Garcia up from the 6 ½ furlong pole and getting six furlongs on Baffert’s watch in 1:11.60.  (Bayern was given an official work time of 1:36.80 for one mile).  Baffert had had him galloping out seven furlongs in 1:24.20 and one mile in 1:37.20.Winless in four starts since last year’s gate to wire triumph in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita, Bayern comes off a distant ninth place run behind Beholder in the Grade I Pacific Classic on Aug. 22, but Baffert is encouraged by what he’s seen from him since returning to The Great Race Place earlier in the week.“He’s enjoying the surface here at Santa Anita,” Baffert told Xpressbet’s Millie Ball.Bayern Link: Farms’ two-time Eclipse Award Champion Beholder walked trainer Richard Mandella’s shedrow for 45 minutes shortly after sunrise.  The 5-year-old Henny Hughes mare, who worked an eye-catching half mile yesterday in 49 seconds breezing, with Gary Stevens up,  appears  to have bounced out of her second post-Pacific Classic drill in good order, as she grazed outdoors for an additional 20 minutes following her scheduled walk under cover.  With Santa Anita’s Grade I Zenyatta Stakes on Sept. 26 in her immediate sights, Beholder will likely face American Pharoah and other top males in what shapes up as an epic showdown in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland Oct. 31.Beholder Link: MULTIPLE ECLIPSE CHAMPION MARE BEHOLDER WALKS SHEDROW FOR MANDELLAlast_img read more

Stop Being Transactional on the Inside

first_imgIf you treat the people that work within your four walls as if they are a transaction, they will follow suit. They will treat your clients as if they are transacting, and they will treat each other as transactions. If you infuse their experience with meaning and purpose, then they will treat the work they do for your clients as if their work is meaningful and purposeful.If you treat the people that work for you or with you as if money is what is most important, then you can expect them to treat everything as if money is what is at issue. If you treat people as if they are a line on your expense report, then they will work like all they are is a line on your expense report. But if you treat them like the single most important asset you have for producing results (and they are), then they will respond in kind, giving you their best performance.People aren’t transactions. Money isn’t the greatest value a business can create.If you build a transactional culture, that transactional culture will impact every aspect of your business, including your client relationships. If you want to avoid being transactional, start first inside your own organization. Essential Reading!

Pacers or spinners, no one was spared even the Sri lankan slinger Lasith Malinga found it difficult to contain them and was hit for runs.Finally, it was Malinga’s famous yorker that did the trick, it entered the bat-pad gate of his Sri lankan team-mate Mahela Jayawrdene and crashed into the middle stump. Jayawardene fell for 56 and Kochi lost him on 128/1.In 17th over Malinga got another reason to cheer when he bowled McCullum on 81 and brought back Mumbai back into the game which was gradually slipping away from their grasp.
