It was that all too familiar feeling. After a dominant 34-25 scoreline heading into the break, the question lingering in the back of every Buckeye fan’s head was slowly becoming a reality – could they really lose this game? I wanted to believe I went colorblind, or that Ohio State started the half wearing Kansas’ jerseys as an early April Fool’s prank, but that wasn’t the case. A common sequence transpired for the next 20 minutes. Kansas responded, breaking hearts in Columbus, eliminating the Buckeyes from the Final Four, 64-62. So there is a new question for Buckeye fans – what could be next for the OSU men’s basketball team? It can be expected that changes will be made when a team travels the distance OSU did in the tournament. Between coaches wanting to find a new home and players graduating or entering the next level of competition, it is a common chain of events. The question can be summarized as a big “what if?” but a prediction is necessary with all the talent surrounding the team. Former guard William Buford will be the only player leaving the roster due to his senior status. Forward Evan Ravenel and guard Alex Rogers will be the only seniors on the roster beginning next year. The leading scorer, former sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, is officially out. The sophomore announced his departure on Wednesday, opening up the center position for the Buckeyes. Satch Sullinger, Jared Sullinger’s father, weighed in on the topic to WBNS-10TV’s ‘Wall to Wall Sports’ following the loss on Saturday: “The one question that I’ll have for Jared is, at this point, coming back, what do you have to prove?” The All-American didn’t have much more to prove. Sullinger led the team in points and rebounds for the past two years. If health was a major concern, it was no surprise that we saw the last game Sullinger plays in the scarlet and gray. Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas will have until April 10 to make his decision on entering the NBA Draft, according to the NCAA. With Buford and Sullinger gone, and the possibility of Thomas joining them, there will be a void that needs to be filled. When it comes down to it, the Buckeyes are young. Freshman forward Sam Thompson and sophomore guard Jordan Sibert are prepared to take the two open positions. Thompson played in each game this season and has impressive athleticism and ball handling. On the other hand, Sibert appeared in 24 games this season, but offers good size alongside sophomore guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. Bearing in mind the departure from Sullinger, Ravenel would be a solid replacement. Ravenel was the only other player to start for the Buckeyes this season providing plenty of minutes off the bench during the tournament as well, but don’t be for certain he is the answer. Enter freshman center Amir Williams. The soon-to-be-sophomore stands in at 6-foot-11. Sitting behind Sullinger, he didn’t see much action this season, but Buckeye fans took notice when he stepped in against Syracuse in the Elite Eight. With the youth on the bench and the talent to fill the void; the team should be able to make another strong push into the tournament. read more

Junior outside hitter Michael Henchy (6) prepares to strike the ball during a match against Saint Francis Feb. 9 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe team that ended the Ohio State men’s volleyball team 2012-13 campaign could be the one who the Buckeyes get their season back on track against.The No. 14 Buckeyes (5-6, 2-2) are set to host Grand Canyon as they continue their five-match homestand at St. John Arena. The Antelopes (6-7) defeated OSU, 3-2, in a Men’s Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Quarterfinal match that ended its season. A chance at revenge lies with the Buckeyes, with two matches against the Antelopes slated to start at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.“They’re a strong team with a lot of returners so I expect them to play really well together,” junior outside hitter Michael Henchy said. “Last time we played them, we lost in five sets and no one has forgotten that. It’s going to be a fun match to play in.”In the last meeting between the two teams, OSU led 2-1 after three sets, but Grand Canyon stormed back to win the final two and take the match.“They came out with a lot of fire and played like they had nothing to lose and ended up beating us. Everyone was in shock at the outcome of the game and it was because we took them very lightly. We can’t let that happen again,” senior middle blocker Jonathan Newton said.OSU is preparing to start off strong against Grand Canyon and hopefully take early control of the match. Newton said the Buckeyes can’t underestimate Grand Canyon like they did previously.“They are going to come out and put up a good fight. If we let them get an early jump on us then we could be in trouble. We will be able to control the game if we stop their momentum from the beginning,” Newton said.After taking some time to get some rest away from the gym this past Sunday and Monday, Newton said the Buckeyes have been working on themselves this week, instead of worrying about what the other team is going to bring to the court.“This game has a lot to do with how Ohio State plays. If we can focus on our side of the net and bring a lot of energy, then it’s going to be hard for any team to beat us in our home gym,” Newton said.OSU coach Pete Hanson said the Buckeyes will do what they can to prevent a repeat of last season’s tournament loss.“We have continued to become better as a unit and not to mention, our returning guys have a little bit of an edge to them, because of what happened last year in the playoffs. We are ready to send the message that it is not going to happen again, especially in St. John Arena,” Hanson said. read more

first_imgParis Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva warned his teammates that Manchester United are always “dangerous” ahead of their Champions League showdown next yearFollowing Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to rivals Liverpool, manager Jose Mourinho was removed from his post with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being brought to succeed the Portuguese on an interim basis for the remainder of the season.This came after United’s worst start to a season in 28 years with the club down in sixth-place in the Premier League and 11 points behind Chelsea in the final top-four spot.However, Silva believes PSG would be unwise to take United for granted under the relatively unproven Solskjaer – who has never coached a major European club before.“United, it is always a dangerous team,” said Silva, according to Goal. “Under Mourinho, I think they could have done better.Colin Dagba, France,How Dagba become one of PSG’s regulars Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 21-year-old full-back Colin Dagba had a very difficult time to break into professional football, but now he’s one of PSG’s regular players.“The motivation of the players is very strong, they will be motivated to play well, to win matches, and this is a team that will cause us a lot of difficulties so we will have to prepare.“Many people think that the draw is good because Manchester are not playing well, but they still a very good team.“They have a history in football, experienced players, and with the change of coach, they will try to push a little more. But we are very motivated too.”PSG will travel to Old Trafford for the first leg of their last-16 tie on February 12 before hosting United in the return leg at the Parc Des Princes on March 6.last_img read more

first_imgThe site may be known for its rapid, provocatively headlined news, but the more analytical stories tended to receive extra attention from a core and consistent group of readers.”When we publish analytic work on the site—we span a broad range from news to features to some pretty wonky analysis—we don’t attract a huge audience necessarily for those kinds of posts, but boy are they involved with questions and comments,” says Business Insider president and COO Julie Hansen. “It became obvious that there was an audience who was interested in the deeper analytic work, either intellectually or for their jobs.”Adding on a subscription-based content product is not a new idea for sites like BI, but it’s been a way to hedge against the ups and downs of display and native advertising, and the research content has turned out to be a clever way to link the main, free site and events with the subscription-based product.For starters, BI uses top-level content from the fee-based reports on the main site as a teaser. “For a long report, we’ll take a portion and put it outside the paywall—a portion of the content that’s substantive enough that it’s perfectly fine standing on it’s own, but it’s obviously part of a much bigger report,” says Hansen. “These reports can be anywhere from five to ten pages, they’re pretty meaty.”Behind the paywall, subscribers have access to two reports per week, a daily chart and several weekly news stories—plus all the archival content. The mobile research content library now contains about 300 charts, says Hansen.And it’s not just about the data, format plays a key role. Subscribers also get the data formatted in downloadable PDF and Excel files, or as PowerPoint decks.”We’ve learned that under certain circumstances decks are the best way to tell a particular story,” notes Hansen. “People find enormous value in the collection of data, and the visualization of data can be powerful. But they’re not a panacea. They don’t always work, sometimes a report is what you need to explain the complicated concepts.”Beyond that, the research reports, particularly in deck form, can be magnets for subscribers. A 50-60 slide deck, for example, may become the center of a keynote presentation by BI CEO Henry Blodget. That same deck becomes a sought after presentation by attendees and others. In turn it’s repurposed as a slide show on Business Insider with plenty of marketing copy pointing readers to the subscription site.”It’s the three-legged stool of our business model. The ad side is the biggest by far, but the other two—events and content sales—are working in concert with it in a very cool way,” adds Hansen. Business Insider is expanding its data subscription service, Business Insider Intelligence, to include research and analysis on the social media market. Up to  now, the service only focused on the mobile space.Paid access to research has become a major focus for BI. The service doubled the number of paid subs, which go for $299 each, between the third and fourth quarters last year and is just about to pass 2,000 subscribers.Launched at the beginning of 2012, the research service leverages a small but potentially lucrative slice of the BI audience—site visitors who dug into the occasional data-centric post.last_img read more

Through the Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Scheme (AB-NHPM), the government aims to provide a coverage of Rs 5 lakh per family annually to more than 10 crore poor households. The National Health Agency (NHA) is the apex body for implementation of the insurance scheme.

According a source, Delhi is also likely to adopt the scheme. The Union health ministry has launched a formal process to empanel public and private hospitals to achieve universal health coverage under AB-NHPM. A senior official in the ministry said the Centre is carrying out beneficiary identification process based on the Socio-Economic Caste Census (SECC) data, and 80 per cent of beneficiaries in rural areas and 60 per cent in the urban areas, have been identified.

first_img The state House today approved a bill from Rep. Laura Cox to provide an additional $175 million for road repairs across Michigan as early as this summer.“We are taking action right now – ahead of schedule – to give our local communities as much time and help as possible as they prioritize road projects for this year,” said Cox, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee which approved the bill before the House floor vote. “Michigan’s roads are in rough shape, and this winter – with all its freezes and thaws – has made the situation worse. We have the funds available now to address one of the top priorities of residents across the state.”The additional money approved today is left over from a previous state government budget cycle and is already available, meaning no budget cuts or additional fees or taxes are required for the investment. The funding boost comes in addition to previous changes that provide more funding for road and bridge projects across Michigan.Cox, of Livonia, noted her bill includes more than $68 million specifically for counties and more than $38 million specifically for cities and villages throughout the state, in addition to state projects. Some of the estimated additional funds that would be provided by the bill in the Metro Detroit region include nearly $6.5 million for Wayne County, $7 million for Oakland County, $5.8 million for Detroit and $686,450 for Livonia.“We are taking extra care to ensure this money for local communities is spent directly on improving roads and not for anything else,” Cox said. “It is crucial that we do as much direct road repair work as possible with the money available.”As part of the statewide funding, the bill also includes up to $15 million for projects aimed at preparing for infrastructure needs of the future. These include next-generation vehicle technology and a transportation mobility pilot project.House Bill 4321 advances to the Senate for further consideration.###For a list of estimated additional road funding amounts that would be received by local governments, visit these links: 21Feb Rep.
