Madison, In. — Indiana Department of Transportation personnel from the Madison Unit have been scheduled to make asphalt pavement patches and repair concrete ditches along a slide site on State Road 7 next week at Madison.INDOT crews should be onsite next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (OCT 30, 31 & NOV 1), weather permitting, closing S.R. 7 north of S.R. 56—just north of Irish Hollow—on Hanging Rock Hill. Barricades will be in place each day between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. stopping traffic at the top of the hill at Harris Street and at the bottom of the hill at Third Street.The S.R. 7 Hanging Rock Hill slide is slated for mitigation next year. A $2,164,847 state contract was awarded this week to the Paul H. Rohe Company of Aurora for stabilizing the embankment slide and resurfacing S.R. 7 pavement 0.4 miles north of S.R. 56.
The game in Seattle came down to the final seconds in the Trojans’ 77-73 victory over Washington State on Thursday night. The teams traded the lead eight times throughout the first quarter alone, rarely gaining more than a 2-point advantage.The Trojans only led by 3 points with under five seconds left as the Cougars blazed down the court for a final shot — a 3-point shot from the top of the arc — where graduate transfer forward Temi Fagbenle waited to make the play to save the game.Fagbenle leapt in the air, a single arm stretched out, and the shot met her palm solidly. She pulled the ball into her arms, nearly tripping over the Washington State player as she dribbled into safety and straight into a foul.After slowly crossing the court, Fagbenle nailed one of the free throws. Key Arena quieted, the air sucked out of it. Four points in 3.6 seconds. All that was left was a time out, a final desperation play. The inbounds pass was tipped and the final buzzer sounded with the ball in Fagbenle’s arms. The win advanced the Trojans to the next round of the Pac-12 Tournament, where they will face No. 1 Oregon State.For the first half of the game, it was impossible to tell which team controlled the pulse of the game. The Cougars started the game with a quick layup and USC answered with a converted 3-point play. From there on, it was a tug-of-war for the lead, with neither team pulling ahead by more than a handful of points.As the half wore on, however, the Trojans found their rhythm. Sophomore guard Sadie Edwards ended the first quarter with another 3-point play and junior guard Courtney Jaco warmed up from behind the 3-point line as well. With their offense coming together, the Trojans were able to stretch their lead to 4 points.But in the final two minutes, Fagbenle took an awkward hit, falling to the ground with a cry of shock and hugging her knee to her chest. She sat out for the rest of the half and in a minute and a half Washington State went on a 9-0 run to take a lead into the half.The second half brought the same back-and-forth play, but in the third quarter, it was Jaco who stepped up to carry the Trojans. Jaco shot 4-4 on the quarter, hitting all three of her 3-point shots to keep USC on top. She went on to finish the game with only one missed shot, notching five 3-point shots and ending with 19 points.Her performance was bolstered by 18 points from Fagbenle — who also pulled down 17 rebounds for yet another double-double on the season — and another 17 points from Edwards, who came alive in the fourth quarter. In total, seven of nine players put points on the board, providing a spread-out offensive attack that outlasted the Cougars.Now, the Trojans are set to take on Oregon State in the second round of the Pac-12 tourney. The game will take place on Friday at Key Arena at 6 p.m., and will be broadcasted on the Pac-12 Network.
Antonio Brown reported to the Raiders’ training camp in Napa, California, Tuesday morning, ending days of drama filled with speculation, a threat of retirement, a lost appeal and more.Brown’s strange preseason ordeal might earn the HBO series “Hard Knocks” an award or two. This year’s show features the Raiders, and the “Hard Knocks” production crew was, not surprisingly, following closely as Brown reported to camp. So was Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Later, Brown balked at playing without his old helmet, which is no longer on the NFL’s approved list. He lost an arbitration appeal to use the old model, and reportedly threatened to retire if he couldn’t use the helmet.Monday night, Pro Football Talk reported the NFL and Brown had reached a compromise allowing him to use the helmet model he likes if he could find one made within the past 10 years. And first thing Tuesday morning, Brown tweeted out his search for just such a helmet.Rosenhaus did say, however, that Brown’s feet were always the bigger issue, and that he returned to camp because he had finished treatments. As far as the helmet issue, he said Brown has found some helmets he likes and they will be submitted to the NFL for approval. O.J. Simpson weighs in on Ezekiel Elliott’s contract, Antonio Brown’s return to camp Antonio Brown launches Twitter search for helmet; Twitterverse wants better deal “We’ll work him back in, obviously it’s great to have him back.” Gruden said. Brown didn’t provide a timeline for when he expects to be able to practice. He reported to camp on time — in a hot-air balloon, no less — but was sidelined at first reportedly by frostbitten feet suffered during cryotherapy. Brown brushed off a question about his feet, and Rosenhaus told reporters the All-Pro wide receiver had received laser treatment. He declined to offer specifics because of possible legal action. Antonio Brown has arrived at #Raiders practice @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/BGYGA0OGkh— MJ Acosta (@MJAcostaTV) August 13, 2019″I’m dealing with a lot of adversity … but I’m excited to be back with my teammates,” Brown told reporters. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden expects Brown will be ready to play in the Sept. 9 season opener. Related News
Premier LeagueLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | When the 100 day-wait for Premier League football comes to an end on Wednesday, the anticipation will be felt as keenly in Mumbai and Beijing as in Manchester and Birmingham.The global reach of the English top-flight has helped secure its position as the wealthiest league in world football.The Premier League’s overseas television rights deals for the 2019-2022 three-season cycle hit a record £4.2 billion ($5.3 billion) and another £2 billion deal has already been struck for Scandinavian rights between 2022 and 2028.That income will be all the more welcome, with uncertainty over when supporters will be allowed back into stadiums and commercial revenues expected to tumble in a global economic crisis.However, without the atmosphere generated by baying fans, the Premier League’s appeal may be diminished in football’s new normal.“What makes it special in England is the way people react to the game,” former Arsenal manager and FIFA’s chief of global football development Arsene Wenger told The Athletic.“It is the best country in the world for the way the fans respond to what’s happening on the pitch. That’s why I think it will be the most handicapped championship without that.”– Reschedule rebate –The need to cram the remaining 92 games of the season into a five-and-a-half week window also means many more midweek games with evening kick-offs in England, forcing fans in the Far East to tune in during the early hours.Overseas broadcasters will be compensated with a reported £107 million rebate due to the change in scheduling.However, the excitement over the Premier League’s return endures, particularly among the huge number of Liverpool fans, many of whom are awaiting a first league title in their lifetimes.Jurgen Klopp’s men are just two wins away from being crowned champions of England for the first time in 30 years.Hu Zhifei, a 26-year-old journalist and member of Liverpool’s official fan club in Beijing, had planned a trip to see his heroes in action in February that was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. “Nobody is anticipating the league’s restart more than Liverpool fans because we are within two wins of the title,” said Hu, who will tune in to watch the Reds via internet streaming despite kick-offs in the early hours.Excitement is also building in India, where the Premier League has built up a strong following among urban youth in a traditionally cricket-obsessed nation.“Finally I’ll watch some live EPL action. I have already chalked out a schedule for these matches,” Qazi Ahmad Masood, a 17-year-old student, told AFP. “I would love to see my favourite club Liverpool lift the trophy.”– ‘Fast and exciting’ –One of the difficulties that lies ahead for the Premier League’s brand will be to maintain the intensity of competition on the field in echoing, empty stadiums.“The Premier League is fast and exciting and no matter whether it is a strong or weak team, the games are great to watch,” said Hu.Fans watching at home will be offered pre-recorded fan noise dubbed over the action to compensate for the real thing.“There is something about the legend that is English football that is all about noise and atmosphere and proximity,” Simon Chadwick, director of Eurasian sport at Emlyon business school in France told AFP.“That spectacle, the product, the noise, the atmosphere, the experience won’t necessarily be there.”However, by overcoming a series of obstacles just to get back playing in the country that is the worst-hit by coronavirus in Europe, the Premier League is confident it will not lose ground in the long run against the Bundesliga, La Liga or Serie A in the battle for viewers across the globe.“We know it won’t be the same without our loyal supporters in stadiums but, together with our broadcast partners, we are able to ensure fans can watch or listen to each match live from home,” said the Premier League’s chief executive Richard Masters.Share on: WhatsApp
Facebook14Tweet0Pin0Submitted 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.
China’s largest bank, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), has offered to purchase a 20% stake in Standard Bank, South Africa’s largest bank by assets and earnings, for US$5.5-billion, representing the largest foreign direct investment in the country to date.The majority state-owned ICBC will pay cash for the stake, estimated at R36.7-billion, which now surpasses the R33-billion that British-based Barclays Bank paid for just over 50% of Absa Bank in 2005.The deal is also the largest investment by a Chinese bank outside China. Of this value, Standard Bank will receive R15.9-billion in new core equity capital and existing shareholders will receive R20.7-billion.“A partnership between Standard bank and ICBC is attractive as each party brings numerous complementary benefits to the relationship,” Standard Bank Group chief executive Jacko Maree said in a statement.“Both banks can benefit through the creation of new revenue streams, access to the new partners’ expertise and sharing distinctive local market knowledge and expertise.”The Standard Bank group is the continent’s largest lender, with over R1-trillion in assets (approximately $156-billion) and a market capitalisation of R145-billion ($21-billion).ICBC is currently the world’s largest bank in terms of market capitalisation, worth some $319-billion, and has been on the lookout for overseas expansion opportunities after it raised $21.9-billion following a public listing on the Hong Kong and Shanghai stock exchanges in 2006.In a jointly issued statement, ICBC said it views South Africa as an attractive market for investment, given its growth prospects, its sophisticated economic and well-regulated financial services infrastructure, as well as its rapidly growing banking customer base.The best way of capturing these opportunities, ICBC said, was through a strategic alliance with Standard Bank, which has significant operations on the African continent.“From a strategic perspective, ICBC has been seeking opportunities to expand its international business, in particular in Africa given strong trade linkages and the close and long standing friendship between China and South Africa,” ICBC chairman Jiang Jianging said.“As many of our large clients seek investments in Africa, the demand for cross-border financial services is accelerating. Standard Bank, with its market leading position in South Africa and a true pan-African footprint, represents the best organization with which ICBC can partner.”The two partners are not wasting any time in identifying joint business opportunities, stating they are discussing the launch of a $1-billion global resource fund that will focus on selected opportunities in Africa and China, specifically in the junior mining and energy sectors.Maree said the transaction also enables Standard Bank to have preferred access to the largest and fast-growing economy in the world, along with a substantial investment from and an alliance with a leading Chinese company in South Africa.“Standard Bank will have a strengthened position of facilitating and financing trade flows between Asia and Africa. In particular, opportunities will be enhanced for providing financial services to resource-based companies engaged with Chinese counterparts,” he said.“An investment of this magnitude is a strong endorsement of the strength, profitability and quality of regulation of South Africa’s banking industry. It is also a meaningful validation of the position achieved by Standard Bank on the African continent.”The transaction is subject to approval by the two companies’ shareholders, as well as gaining the necessary regulatory approval.Useful linksStandard Bank: www.standardbank.co.zaICBC China: www.icbc.com.cn
Managing oneself well isn’t easy.One CEO I know and work with keeps a small clock in front of him and the person he is meeting with at all times. If he is having a one-hour meeting, the meeting lasts for exactly one hour. This CEO is polite. He is professional. He is disciplined. He is structured. And he is rigid when it comes to his time. He is also overworked and under enough stress that his health suffers from time to time.I know another CEO, who is perpetually late. Not only does he show up late for meetings that he called, but he also misses meetings that other people have scheduled with him. He exercises little control over his calendar, and less control over himself. He is also overworked and stressed out.Too Much To ControlThe first CEO is doing too much. It feels to him like he has everything under control. But control is an illusion. His grip is too tight, and what slips through his fingers is often his health.What this CEO needs more than anything is margin. He needs to loosen up the control and give himself space to breathe. That space is not wasted; it’s room to reflect and be creative. It’s room to meditate, renew and recharge.Neither the mind or the body is like an engine that can run endlessly. Too much is a recipe for burnout.Too Little ControlLiving in a reactive mode is no better. Not only can you end up doing too much, but you can also end up doing too much poorly. Worse still, you can end up doing work that you shouldn’t be doing it all.The problem with living in a reactive mode is that by exercising too little control, you never invest enough time in the most important, most strategic, and most meaningful work that you should be doing.Without control, you miss commitments, and you damage relationships.BalanceOne of the keys to getting things done is to have a careful balance between controlling your calendar and your work while leaving room for yourself and other people.It might feel like the blank spaces on your calendar should all be filled with something, but that would crowd out the time you need to recharge, renew, and respond to people who need your help.Managing oneself well isn’t about too much control or too little control. It’s about making strategic decisions to do some things and not to do others.
