Mens Basketball Kyle Young gives Ohio State spark in return against Penn

Ohio State sophomore forward Kyle Young defends during the Buckeyes’ 74-70 win against Penn State on Thursday at the Schottenstein Center. Photo: Ethan Clewell | Senior Lantern ReporterEven when active on the roster, sophomore forward Kyle Young’s impact wasn’t obvious.Before going down with a stress fracture in his right leg against Maryland on Jan. 18, Young averaged 7.3 points and 4.8 rebounds per game, starting in 12 of the 17 games to begin the season.But in his return to the team on Thursday, Young proved his value late down the stretch.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann didn’t even expect to play him as much as he did.“I was worried about his conditioning,” Holtmann said. “In my head, I thought 15 minutes, potentially, depending on foul trouble.”Fifteen minutes turned to 25 minutes, but again, Young’s statline didn’t stand out — six points and six rebounds, albeit while going 3-for-3 from the field.Without the exciting numbers, Young’s plays down the stretch of the game are what gave Ohio State just enough to pull out a 74-70 win against Penn State, a team it hasn’t defeated in the past three tries.Young found himself with the ball at the basket with his team down one point and just over a minute to go. Instead of rushing the shot opportunity, Young exhibited patience, waiting for junior forward Lamar Stevens to come down after the block attempt, leaving the sophomore forward an open layup, putting the Buckeyes up 71-70.“I thought his shot-fake finish was big there late, showed great poise,” Holtmann said. “[Young] rebounded it well, played with activity, you know, that’s who Kyle is, we’ve missed that.”Ohio State would not give that lead up the rest of the game, which again was assisted by Young.This time on the defensive end, it was Stevens attacking the basket with Young defending. Again, Young got the better of him, blocking Penn State’s leading scorer with 38 seconds to play.“I know he was hungry to be back, so he didn’t need too much motivation to come into the game and give his all,” freshman guard Luther Muhammad said. “We just told him to come in, continue to play his game and just play within the team and he had to do good and he did.”Young’s indent on his team can be situational. But when he has chosen to take an opportunity, he has proven to be reliable.During Big Ten play, games in which the Buckeyes are 5-6 as opposed to their 10-1 nonconference record, Young has remained a consistent presence.Ohio State is shooting 43.8 percent as a team in conference play, but Young has made 23 of his 27 attempts in seven games, good for 85.2 percent from the field, highest on the team of anyone besides redshirt junior forward Danny Hummer, who is 1-for-1.Moving forward, while the Buckeyes continue to look for answers due to a small roster, Young could be the difference maker when the time is needed.Against Penn State, he proved to be exactly that, even after a four-game absence.Junior forward Andre Wesson didn’t even think Young was ready to play yet.“When he said he was playing, I was like ‘You’re playing?,’” Wesson said. “He came in, didn’t miss a beat, he was still out there doing his job, rebounding, being another key part of our defense with blocking shots and everything, so it was good to see.“ read more

Quique Sanchez reveals why he joined Shanghai Shenhua

first_imgThe former Real Madrid footballer is now coaching in the Chinese Super League for the first time.Quique Sanchez Flores played for Valencia, Real Madrid, and Zaragoza from 1984 to 1997.The former Spain international became a coach in 2001, and since then he has been around.He has coached the Real Madrid youth team, Getafe, Valencia, Benfica, Espanyol, and Atletico Madrid in his native Spain.He has also managed Al-Ahli, Al-Ain, and Watford.And since the summer of 2018, he’s been in the Chinese Super League with Shanghai Shenhua.“I’m still dedicated to my profession with the same passion and with the idea, now, of broadening my horizons,” he told Marca.“My affiliation with this club, Shanghai Shenhua, had to give sooner or later since they came to find me at my home in Madrid four years ago.”“We’ve never been able to join up and now we’re here. I’m really hungry for this adventure,” he commented.“There is and there will be. But they must give projects. I only value certain leagues, not all; and I want to train certain teams, not all.”Report: Gareth Bale’s move to China blocked by Real Madrid board Manuel R. Medina – July 28, 2019 According to many media outlets, Gareth Bale’s proposed move to the Chinese Super League has been called off by his own team.“Wherever I go, I have the desire to improve myself and that the clubs enjoy being with me, with my team,” he said about the chance to coach in the Spanish La Liga once again.“Then, there is space and there will be, but right now I want to take up their opportunity in China.”“In each of the clubs I have been, they have explained the project to me,” he continued.“I dedicate a lot of time to this and the clubs have to respond. If I haven’t spent very long at a club, it’s because the club has changed the project.”“It’s not the coaches that change. We are in a moment of enormous instability in our profession,” he said.“The result is very evident. Almost nobody evaluates the job at the end of May like it should be. There is tension in clubs and this generates anxiety. Therefore, it’s not the coaches that feel the pressure but the board, who are often incapable of living with the pressure and keeping a coach.”Day 8 in Marbella pic.twitter.com/pDpRbu3g0E— Shanghai Shenhua FC (@shanghaishenhua) January 13, 2019last_img read more

Infosys using new system iCount to assess employee performance

first_imgInfosys, India’s second largest IT firm, has rolled out a new appraisal system named iCount for its employees. The system measures their performance based on the targets given to them.The move comes months after it had abandoned the bell curve appraisal tool to assess its employees’ performance.Under the new assessment system iCount, employees will get feedback on their performance throughout the year.”Infosys has changed the way performance management is done, with higher focus on individual performance rather than relative performance. We have moved away from forced ranking curve and given our managers more flexibility and empowerment, while still retaining focus on maintaining a high performance culture,” an Infosys spokeswoman told The Economic Times.In September last year, Bengaluru-based IT major had ceased using the bell curve method. Under that system, the managers were compelled to separate the employees into three categories and “rank the performance of 70 percent as average, 20 percent as high and 10 percent as low.”Infosys’ move to discontinue the bell curve tool was one of CEO Vishal Sikka’s initiatives to reduce attrition levels and improve employee productivity. After taking charge as the chief of Infosys in August 2014, Sikka brought many changes for ‘Infoscions,’ including doing away with the formal dress code.The new system will reward the company’s employees based on their performance in short-term, taking into account annual targets set for them.”The underlying message is that every Infoscion counts and contributes…It allows for continuous feedback from peer, manager, stakeholder. This is much better than the earlier point in time feedback,” the company spokeswoman told the daily.Other IT majors such as Accenture and IBM have also made changes to their employee performance appraisal systems. Recently, IBM started using a new system called Checkpoint that helps in reviewing employee performance continuously rather than assessing once a year.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Reliance Communications Chairman Anil Ambani. REUTERS/Shailesh AndradeThe Depart of Telecommunication’s (DoT) show-cause notice to Reliance Communications (RCom) for yet another default of license fee payment does not move the needle for resolving the crisis that the Anil Ambani-led telecom provider is facing. RCom’s dues for spectrum fees alone already amount to Rs 281 crore, according to reports.There are on-going cases in the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) and the Supreme Court that have added to the travails of the company. It is already in trouble after the Rs 7,300-crore deal with Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio for spectrum sales could not go through as DoT refused to give the go-ahead for the deal. DoT wants Jio to guarantee the payment of the historical dues that RCom owes DoT before it can give the go ahead.Though the spectrum deal has been scrapped, Jio will continue to share the spectrum with RCom as long as it is available, according to a Jio official. “RCom continues to be a licensed operator. They have not paid, but that does not disqualify them (as a license holder) and DoT is looking into it. DoT has sent show-cause notices for not paying (dues) but the company is in a peculiar situation where there are court cases going on in NCLAT and Supreme Court,” said Anshuman Thakur, strategy head of Jio at a recent function where Reliance Industries announced its FY19 Q4 results, according to reports.”Today they are eligible to share spectrum and use that network to service enterprise customers. If there are any changes, we will get to know, because it’s between the courts and DoT,” Thakur added. Jio shares RCom’s airwaves in the 850 MHz band in 21 circles, including Mumbai, and industry experts say the scrapping of airwaves by DoT could disrupt Jio’s services. The spectrum deal for selling 122.4 MHz of spectrum in the 850 MHz band to Jio would have helped ease RCom’s debt burden. File photo of Chairman of Reliance Industries Ltd Mukesh Ambani speaking as his brother Anil Ambani watches in 2004. Reliance Communications is in limbo with the court cases and trouble with DoT over spectrum payments.ReutersAs the bankruptcy proceedings of RCom continue in NCLAT, their effect is already putting a strain on the other companies of the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADG). RCom shares have hit the bottom while group companies like Reliance Power and Reliance Capital have been plunging. RCom share fell 4 per cent on Thursday to reach Rs 2.40. Reliance Capital fell 11.77 per cent to Rs 151.45 on National Stock Exchange (NSE). Reliance Power plunged 13.23 per cent to Rs 8.20. Reliance Infrastructure skidded 7.99 per cent to Rs 121.50. The Anil Ambani Group companies have been in trouble since the controversy erupted over his company’s involvement in the Rafale fighter jet. Rahul Gandhi-led opposition Congress party has made Rafale Defence’s role as an offset partner in the deal with French company Dassault a campaign point in the ongoing general elections against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).Anil Ambani almost landed in jail after the Supreme Court convicted him of contempt of court for failure to pay Swedish telecom equipment vendor Ericsson.

Mariano Rajoy Spains Supreme Court is set to rule

first_imgMariano RajoySpain’s Supreme Court is set to rule on the fate of eight of the country’s digital-terrestrial channels on Tuesday, following allegations that channel licences were awarded illegally under the previous government. According to local press reports, all signs indicate that prime minister Mariano Rajoy will not intervene to save the channels. If the court rules that the eight services must close, following the closure last year of nine channels on the DTT platform, commercial broadcaster Mediaset would be left with two channels – Cuatro and Telecinco – and would see four channels – Energy, Divinity, Boing and FDF – close. Rival Atresmedia would lose Neox and Nova, and would be left with Antena 3, La Sexta and a channel set to replace Mediapro’s Gol TV.The broadcasters had been hoping for an amendement to the country’s audiovisual law ahead of the court decision that could have allowed them to keep the channels open. Deputy prime minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría is believed to be receptive to their demands ahead of the general election scheduled for later this year. However, industry minister José Manuel Soria reportedly wants to leave the decision to the court amid fears that intervention could intervene if amendments to the law are passed.last_img read more
