After Coffey and USF’s Alisia Jenkins traded missed layups, Syracuse’s guard missed a 3-pointer in the final second, leaving the Orange (22-4, 10-3 Big East) with just its third conference loss of the season and handing South Florida (19-7, 8-5) its second marquee win in as many games.Though the totals on the scoreboard ended up lower than both teams’ up-tempo offenses average, the first half flew at the pace both are used to.Syracuse jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the first two and a half minutes fueled by four points from guard Brittney Sykes.

Chelsea ready to send Christian Atsu to Derby County

first_imgChelsea are ready to send Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu to Steve McClaren’s Derby County on loan — after his horror spell at Everton.Speedy star Atsu hardly got a kick for Roberto Martinez’s club, much to Stamford Bridge’s anger and frustration, and they are now talking to the Rams about a deal.Chelsea will apparently recall Christian Atsu from his loan spell at Everton and send him to Championship high-flyers Derby County for the rest of the season.The Ghanaian winger, who is currently on Africa Cup of Nations duty, has played only three times for the Toffees in the Premier League this campaign.His parent club are unhappy with the lack of action that Atsu has seen at Goodison Park and plan to terminate their agreement with Everton this month.The Sun claims that Chelsea feel that the 23-year-old, who has yet to play for the Blues since joining from Porto in 2013, would benefit from more regular football and Derby are keen to have him. The Rams lost loan star Jordan Ibe, who scored five goals in 20 games while at the iPro Stadium, last week when he was recalled by Liverpool and hope to bring in another top-flight talent to boost their promotion bid.last_img read more

Department of Education urged to engage with school secretaries in Donegal

first_imgThe Department of Education has been urged to engage with school secretaries in County Donegal.Deputy McConalogue has made the call as school secretaries in the county and nationwide announced that they would embark on a campaign of industrial action from September 20th.Deputy McConalogue said: “This situation has been allowed to develop because the department have stood by despite repeated calls from Fianna Fáil to engage with and support school secretaries. “90% of school secretaries are paid for out of school funding and do not have the same safeguards in place as the 10% employed directly by the Department.“They are often at a great disadvantage when it comes to sick leave, the certainty of hours or pay increases. I know of some school secretaries who have spent the summer months in receipt of social welfare payments.“This is not the way that we should be treating vital education staff. Particularly when other people, doing the very same job, have vastly improved conditions.“The Department of Education is dragging its feet when it comes to a resolution to this issue. In fact, the Workplace Relations Commission has mandated that talks would take place this year between the Government and the Unions. “The Minister must ensure that these negotiations take place immediately, ahead of any planned industrial action, and that the Department engages meaningfully with a view to addressing the genuine concerns of school secretaries across Donegal.“The Minister claimed he recognised this as a matter for concern in the past, he now needs to use his position to secure the future of the 90% of school secretaries who deserve recognition for the vital work they do”, concluded Deputy McConalogue.Department of Education urged to engage with school secretaries in Donegal was last modified: September 9th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

 

State Fair legends

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Quietly whistling to himself, the judge strolled by Mike’s steer, giving it a long look. Mike was nervous, but he’d had a good day. He was in the hunt for champion — the last paring down of more than 350 steers. He clutched the halter of his clear favorite, the one he’d had his eye on all year.Mike’s father started a 4-H club with a focus on showing cattle and he and his brothers had done just that from their earliest 4-H days. They were like most 4-H families and there was always the issue of who would get what animal and Mike had spent his show career picking and choosing with his older brothers. This year, though, was different because Mike’s brothers were older and off to college. Mike got first and last choice.The steer he led around the show ring at the command of the whistling judge had come from South Dakota. At 17-years-old Mike went on a December road trip from Ohio to South Dakota with a truck and trailer and his 19-year-old brother. That trip would help shape the next several months of Mike’s life very specifically, and the rest of his life in a general sort of way.It was a long trip for the two boys, but it allowed for the important chance to take a look at some good calves in their natural environment, which Mike really valued in the selection process. Mike had grown up learning how to pick out good calves with his brothers. He found three steers he liked and hauled them back to Ohio. Mike knew they were good.After months of diligent care and long hours spent working with his calves, the county fair had finally come. Mike took two of his three calves. This was the first time he’d ever specifically left one calf at home to save for the Ohio State Fair. The calves both won their classes at the county fair but the whistling judge did not put them at the top. Mike was disappointed, but he pressed on. After all, he’d saved his best steer back home in the barn for the State Fair. One of his county fair steers sold and Mike brought one home.The Ohio State Fair was three weeks away. After some thought, he decided to take both the steer he brought home from the county fair and the steer he’d saved for the occasion to the State Fair — two steers, but he only needed one to have a shot at grand champion.It was a long, hot show. Everyone was tired but Mike remained poised, expertly leading and setting up the Chianina-Angus cross steer he’d saved for this moment from the day he’d picked him out half a nation away many months before. The steer had won his class and, as the show neared its conclusion, his eyes (and the eyes of everyone else in the building) were fixed firmly on the whistling judge.The moments passed with agonizing delay. Mike’s stomach did a few flips. He didn’t notice the heat, the exhaustion or the building of people watching. He just watched that whistling judge.Known around the world for his photographic memory, that same legendary livestock judge whistled his way through Mike’s county fair show and now through the entirety of the Ohio State Fair cattle show. That judge never forgot an animal. He remembered them all. He looked over the Ohio State Fair class-winning lineup with the keenest of eyes one last time.Finally, Mike (and pretty much everyone in the packed stands) let out a gasp as the judge slapped the back of a steer on down the line from Mike to select the champion. Mike was surprised, but not upset in the least.The ringman came up to Mike, knowing what was going on, and asked if Mike wanted to go get his other calf. Mike said, “Heck no I want to show for reserve champion.”Mike didn’t get reserve champion with the steer he’d saved for the Ohio State Fair. He got grand champion with the steer he’d taken to the county fair and brought along to the State Fair. That legendary whistling judge was Herman Purdy, and he remembered that steer from the Champaign County Fair that needed about three weeks of good feeding and care to become a State Fair grand champion.Purdy remembered that exhibitor from the Champaign County Fair too, a young man named Mike Bumgarner. The two spoke after the show.“I knew you’d be showing the wrong calf when you came back out for the champion drive,” Purdy said.Mike laughed and with a respectful smile said, “No you just picked the wrong calf.”Mike went on to sell his grand champion steer to Wendy’s for $26,680, a new Sale of Champions record in 1975. Mike is now the CEO of United Producers, Inc., a cooperative that services 35,000 members, operates 40 facilities and handles approximately 3 million head of livestock annually. Herman Purdy is still known as one of the greatest cattle judges that ever lived. Both left their mark on the Ohio State Fair.The Ohio State Fair Junior Market Beef Show is on Aug. 5 and the 50th Sale of Champions is Aug. 6. Come and watch as Ohio’s livestock legends are born.last_img read more

 

The Prototype Rigging of Vintage Lenses in “Ford v Ferrari”

first_imgHow the filmmakers involved with Ford v Ferrari rigged custom vintage lenses to achieve the gritty look and feel of the 1966 Le Mans car race.The ’60s aesthetic achieved with the use of the Panavision C Series in Ford v Ferrari (via Twentieth Century Fox).Director James Mangold and cinematographer Phedon Papamichael were invested in having a ’60s and ’70s film-like aesthetic while shooting digital. Because Ford v Ferrari is character driven, there was an intimacy they wanted to achieve behind the wheel. Unlike the approach of the Fast and Furious franchise, they weren’t looking for the beautifully clean, sharp imagery with all the resolution and detail that lenses such as the ZEISS Master Primes and Ultra Primes would provide. They distinctly wanted the grain, distortion, and flare achieved through vintage lenses — so they chose the Panavision C Series.However, those classic lenses didn’t mesh with the ARRI Alexa LF, as they don’t cover in the sensor. In stepped Panavision’s Dan Sasaki with a prototype solution.An example of the anamorphic format used in Ford v Ferrari. (Photo by Merrick Morton via Twentieth Century Fox.)Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael explained it this way:We wanted to stay on anamorphic because we love that aspect ratio. In fact, the slight anamorphic distortion really helps the look of the cars and makes everything sexy and also conveys that period. The only problem is they don’t cover in the sensor of the LF. So, we turned to Dan Sasaki, the lens guru of Panavision. He was like, ‘Well, I can expand them.’ And I’m like, ‘Really? Can you do that and can you get this done before we start shooting?’ We were about to go to France and do the sequence where he gets to the square in Le Mans and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I can do this.’Close-up of Matt Damon and Christian Bale using a wide-angle lens in Ford v Ferrari (via Twentieth Century Fox).The production team was heading out to France in two weeks, and Papamichael was elated that Sasaki could turn it around that quickly.He put that together and we really went out with these prototype lenses that nobody had done before. It’s a two time anamorphic expansion lens with an additional piece of glass on the back that’s covering that sensor. And it just created this beautiful fall off in the background . . . it’s very painterly and just. But that allows us to do close-ups on a wider-angle lens, which is something Mangold and I always like to do. We don’t like to just put on a long lens when we do coverage or close-ups. We like to physically move the camera closer and so feel the world. Even though, technically, you’re doing a close-up, you always feel the surrounding, you always feel the environment around them, and there are a lot of interactions. Although you’re looking at a close-up, you feel the context of what’s happening around them.Close-up of Christian Bale using a wide-angle lens in Ford v Ferrari (via Twentieth Century Fox).The process was not without its glitches, as the prototype did need to be adjusted and tweaked before filming. However, the results were so impressive that Panavision now finds that expanding is in high demand.You can see the results of this wild ride with Ford v Ferrari‘s release on November 15th.Cover Image via Twentieth Century Fox. Looking for more articles about the filmmaking industry?

Credit: Dana Lewin | Courtesy of OSU AthleticsThe No. 5 seed Ohio State women’s basketball team dominated the No. 4 seed Kentucky Wildcats 82-68 with sharp shooting and tough defense in the second round of the NCAA tournament in Lexington, Kentucky.Freshman Tori McCoy and redshirt junior guard Linnae Harper dominated on the floor for the Buckeyes, each recording a double-double.This was a battle between two of the most powerful guards in the country — Kentucky’s senior Makayla Epps and OSU’s junior Kelsey Mitchell, who each led their team in scoring with 21 points a piece.The Buckeyes had five players scoring in double figures including Mitchell, senior forward Shayla Cooper (10), Harper (12), McCoy (14) and redshirt sophomore guard Sierra Calhoun (10).Mitchell started things off right for the Scarlet and Gray, draining a 3 just five seconds into the game. OSU got an early 12-8 lead thanks to 10 points from Mitchell in the first five minutes of play.Kentucky kept the OSU lead to just four-points at the end of the first quarter, with senior forward Evelyn Akhator leading the team in points and dominating rebounds on both sides of the floor. She finished with 14 points and 23 rebounds.In the beginning of the second quarter, the Buckeyes took control of the game, going on a 15-2 run in the first five minutes. OSU led the fast-paced game 46-31 and sunk six from 3 compared to the Wildcats’ one.Kentucky came out with more fire in the second half and out-scored the Buckeyes 22-15 in the third quarter. Epps and Akhator led the Wildcats in scoring as they decreased the deficit to just 8-points.Sophomore Wildcat Maci Morris downed a 3-pointer with 8:55 left to play to bring her team within one possession of the Buckeyes, 61-58.The Wildcats never obtained the lead, however, and OSU went on an 8-0 run which resulted in a 82-68 tournament victory.Harper, who transferred to OSU from Kentucky halfway through the 2015-16 season, was essential in the victory over her former team. She nearly had a triple-double with 12 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.OSU will move on to the regional semifinals in the Sweet 16 round on March 24 at Rupp Arena. The Buckeyes will take on the winner of No. 1 seed Notre Dame and No. 9 seed Purdue. read more
