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.

first_imgContradicting common perception, researchers have found that low levels of vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin”, does not cause or worsen sleep apnea.Sleep apnea causes repeated awakenings and pauses in breathing during the night. Obesity appears to contribute to the adverse effects.“The link between obesity and vitamin D deficiency can be explained a number of ways, one of which is that obese individuals are less likely to be physically active, thereby limiting their sun exposure,” said senior investigator Ken Kunisaki, associate professor of medicine at University of Minnesota in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“Although our study was not designed to figure out why obese people have lower vitamin D levels, our results ultimately suggest that low vitamin D levels do not cause or worsen sleep apnea,” Kunisaki said. The study involved a cohort of 2,827 participants who were generally healthy and elderly males with average age 76.4 years. “Taking additional vitamin D supplements is not likely to prevent or improve sleep apnea,” Kunisaki said.The researchers also found no evidence to support a link between vitamin D deficiency and increased risk of sleep apnea in non-obese study participants.The study appeared in the journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society.last_img read more

first_img State Rep. Shane Hernandez has introduced legislation to clarify Michigan law and protect local charities from unnecessary harassment.Hernandez, R-Port Huron, sponsored a bill to allow charitable organizations to continue longstanding practices of collecting money in public roadways under strict guidelines.“What we’re attempting to do is simply remove laws from the books which are often ignored anyway,” Hernandez said.  “I want to thank Senator Phil Pavlov for helping bring this issue to my attention.  His request for an Attorney General opinion really helped us pinpoint the problem which we are trying to fix.”Under the legislation, anyone wishing to solicit funds on or near Michigan roads would have to be doing so for a charitable or civic organization.  They could do so only during daylight hours, and must maintain at least $500,000 of personal liability insurance in order to protect local municipalities from potential lawsuits.“In the communities I represent, local fire departments, police departments, and charitable organizations really depend on fundraising drives to help pay for important programs for the community,” Hernandez said. “As a lawmaker, I believe in eliminating unnecessary and often unenforced regulations whenever possible.”### 02Feb Rep.
