Ohio State football coaches are currently working hard to recruit incoming freshmen to fill out the team’s roster for next season, but the Buckeyes got their most important commitment from a current member of the team on Saturday.OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby, a second-team Associated Press All-American this season, told The Columbus Dispatch on Saturday he will return to OSU next season rather than declare for the 2013 NFL Draft.The Buckeyes figure to be among the top contenders for next year’s BCS National Championship Game, and Roby’s return increases the likelihood of that possibility.Although banned from the postseason, OSU became one of the nation’s best teams in 2012, winning all 12 of its regular-season games. A big reason for the team’s success was Roby, who blossomed into one of the nation’s best cornerbacks under coach Urban Meyer and cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs.On a consistent basis throughout the season, Roby matched up in one-on-one coverage against the opposing team’s best wide receiver – and shut his opponent down.Roby consistently showed his ball skills and playmaking ability too. With 19 passes defended in 11 games, Roby had a rate of 1.73 passes defended per game, the best rate in the nation according to cfbstats.com. He also scored three total touchdowns, one each on an interception return, fumble return and punt block return.The Buckeyes’ pass defense was very shaky at times during the 2012 season. They gave up 243.5 passing yards per game, ranking just 78th nationally in yards allowed, and gave up 32 passing plays of 20 yards or more according to cfbstats.com. Those shortcomings, however, were rarely a result of mistakes by Roby. When targeted during a game, Roby has proven to be far more likely to come up with a big play than the opposing receiver.The Buckeyes already had a number of key players from this year’s defense not returning next season. Second-team AP All-American defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins declared for the draft as a junior, while six senior starters graduated, including defensive end John Simon, who was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, and linebackers Etienne Sabino and Zach Boren.None of those losses, however, will hurt the Buckeyes next season as much as losing Roby would have.Returning safeties C.J. Barnett and Christian Bryant, who will both be seniors next season, are physically-gifted playmakers but inconsistent in deep pass coverage. Roby was the Buckeyes’ only consistently strong performer in the secondary this season, and with fellow cornerback Travis Howard lost to graduation, the Buckeyes would have had to replace both of their starting cornerbacks.With Roby’s return, what could have been an area of major concern looks like a strength for the Buckeyes. He will lead a talented trio of returning starters in the secondary, while OSU has numerous talented young players to compete for the other starting cornerback spot.Sophomore Doran Grant showed promise as the team’s nickel cornerback this season and freshman Armani Reeves is a gifted young talent at the position too. Defensive backs Eli Apple and Cam Burrows, both rated as four-star recruits by Rivals.com and Scout.com, are enrolling early this semester as incoming freshmen.By making the decision to return to OSU, Roby surpassed the opportunity to be a first-round pick in this year’s draft. He was expected to be the third cornerback selected in the 2013 Draft, following Alabama’s Dee Milliner and Mississippi State’s Jonathan Banks. Even so, his decision to return could result in personal dividends.By coming back and making OSU’s national championship chances stronger, he puts himself in position to potentially leave Columbus with a championship ring, even if he declares for the 2014 Draft.In the process, Roby could go from being one of the top cornerbacks in college football to the best at his position.Assuming Milliner declares for the draft as a junior, both first-team AP All-American cornerbacks and all three Jim Thorpe Award finalists from this season will have moved on to the NFL, leaving the door wide open for Roby to be college football’s top defensive back.Roby will have plenty of competition to be the top cornerback drafted in 2014, including Florida sophomore Loucheiz Purifoy. But Roby made significant development in his play between his freshman and sophomore seasons, and could do so again as a junior.By returning to school, Roby takes the risk of having a disappointing season and having his draft stock fall as a result. That risk, however, comes with big potential rewards: the chance to be the best cornerback in the nation, and perhaps most lucrative of all, the chance to help lead the Buckeyes to their first national championship since 2002.

Jun 19th 2017, 8:30 PM Share34 Tweet Email2 EMMANUEL MACRON WILL enjoy a numerically comfortable majority when France’s parliamentary assembly convenes for its new term on June 27. However, after the second and final round of the legislative elections yesterday, the La République en Marche (LRM) political movement of the new President obtained a smaller majority than had been expected after the first round.Nonetheless, while the presidential grouping’s 350 seats (out of a parliamentary total of 577) was less than the projection of over 400, La République en Marche’s return of 308 elected members means that Macron will not be dependent on his centrist allies (MoDem: 42 seats) for an absolute majority.Indeed, that the LRM-led government returned fewer deputies than expected could be spun as a positive rather than a setback, as it leaves the President with a less-unwieldy majority to manage and quiets fears of an opposition-less rule.A one man majority?Significant challenges of management will remain in the ruling majority, however. In an election season that has produced upheaval after upheaval, one of the striking results of the legislatives is that only 25% of sitting deputies were re-elected, with many of the remaining three quarters being parliamentary – and often political – neophytes.While reflective of the disgruntlement with establishment politics that characterised the presidential election, this preponderance of parliamentary newcomers is a practical, and possibly a political, challenge for party elites.Furthermore, the staggering abstention rate of over 57% means that, notwithstanding its substantial majority, the government cannot convincingly lay claim to a strong popular mandate. The success in the legislative elections owes much more to the personal popularity of the new president – accompanied by a rejection of the traditional parties – than it does to profound belief in LRM and its candidates.France’s constitutional republic, which in its current form was conceived and designed by former President and war hero Charles de Gaulle, is one in which politics is very much personified.Macron has learned from the failures of the weak presidency of “Mr Normal,” François Hollande, and has begun his own premiership in a more traditional manner, drawing upon cultural and military symbolism in his victory celebrations and inauguration to position himself as a strong national leader and one who can lay claims to the lineage of popular predecessors such as de Gaulle and François Mitterrand.Macron’s foreign policy commendable performances since his election, notably in his interactions with strongman Presidents Trump and Putin, has reinforced his image as a charismatic national leader and increased his popularity with the public. This personal popularity was a major factor in the success of the LRM candidates in a parliamentary election in which political apathy and election fatigue were extremely pronounced.However, the ruling majority will need some convincing domestic wins to ensure that La République en Marche does not go the way of Hollande’s Socialist party (who went from a ruling majority of 284 to 33 seats).Legislative hurdles aheadDespite the comfortable parliamentary majority, these wins will not be easily won. And the battles to be fought will not only be in the national assembly but also in the press and on the streets.The first two major pieces of legislation to be introduced are a new law on ethics in public life and a labour reform law. Previous attempts to pass this labour-reform law saw students, workers and unions take to the streets and fatally undermine the already unpopular Socialist government, damage the presidential candidacy of former prime minister Manuel Valls and cost the minister responsible for the law, Myriam El Khomri, her seat.As for ethics in public life: the member of Macron’s new government responsible for introducing the law, Minister for Justice François Bayrou, leads the centrist MoDem party, a party currently under suspicion of engaging in misleading or potentially fraudulent employment practices in the European Parliament.President Emmanuel Macron’s comfortable majority in the national assembly might, then, turn out to be less comfortable than the numbers would suggest. And among those new faces in the opposition ranks of the parliament will be long-time campaigners but first-time parliamentary deputies Jean-Luc Mélenchon, of the burgeoning left-wing La France Insoumise (Rebellious France), and Marine Le Pen, of a Front National that although much bruised is not beaten.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece continues to spend a significant amount of money in Australia to support the teaching of the Greek language, despite the unprecedented economic crisis the country is going through.The Greek government sends dozens of teachers across Australia to teach the Greek language, although their numbers, due to the economic crisis, have been severely curtailed.The vast majority of these teachers show great enthusiasm for teaching young children the Greek language, despite the fact they are poorly paid. Parents who approached Neos Kosmos told us they are deeply moved by these teachers, who are fully aware of their duty to teach Greek to third and fourth generation Greek Australians.According to the information we gathered, some of the teachers sent here receive their normal salary and a bonus for working in Australia, others (after staying three years in Australia) only receive their salaries, and some, if they decide to stay in Australia after three years, receive nothing.Given that their salary is limited (on average around AU$1,500 per month) and due to the high cost of living here, they hardly make ends meet. Moreover, they are not covered by Medicare and must have private health insurance so as not to be uninsured.This is the reason Greek teachers no longer show willingness to leave Greece and to come to Australia for a limited period. They are placed at the request of the schools, mainly – community and parish schools as well as public schools which are considered to provide sound teaching of the Greek language.“It bothers me that at various events school principals and presidents thank everyone but forget to thank Greece for sending out the teachers which the schools have at no cost to them,” said one of those teachers.We are placing them according to certain “priorities”, Consul General of Greece in Melbourne Christina Simantirakis told Neos Kosmos.Ms Simantirakis temporarily oversees the Office of the Coordinator of Education, which has been left ‘orphaned’ after the retirement of Mr B. Gogas, who has returned to Greece. He was temporarily replaced by another teacher who also returned to Greece.The person chosen as the new education coordinator came to Melbourne and left after two days (for unknown reasons) without giving any explanation. His replacement has not yet been set.Besides sending teachers, Greece still sends educational books to selected Greek Australian schools (it is not clear who has made the list of the schools and what criteria were used).In any case, the significant contribution of Greece to the teaching of the Greek language in Australia is relatively known to the Greek community and it is not always acknowledged by some schools benefiting from it.
Tornades, trombes marines, entonnoirs nuageux : des phénomènes météorologiques à découvrir en imagesSources d’inspiration pour de nombreux réalisateurs de films catastrophes, les tornades sont un phénomène aujourd’hui bien compris des scientifiques. Ces derniers sont, hélas, toujours incapables de les arrêter. Chaque année elles causent la mort de 300 à 400 personnes en moyenne et détruisent tout ce qui se trouve sur leur passage.Une tornade est un tourbillon de vents pouvant atteindre plus de 400 km/h, ces derniers pouvnat atteindre 660 km/h à l’intérieur de la dépression. La tornade en elle-même se déplace à une vitesse de 50 à 100 km/h. Elle est constituée d’un entonnoir nuageux raccordé à un nuage orageux de type cumulonimbus, et elle tourne en général dans le sens des aiguilles d’une montre dans l’hémisphère sud et dans le sens contraire dans l’autre hémisphère.Il existe d’autres phénomènes proches des tornades : les trombes marines par exemple, sont plus éphémères. Elles se forment au-dessus d’une étendue d’eau importante et durent de 5 à 20 minutes (la tornade dure en moyenne 10 à 30 minutes, voire plusieurs heures). La vitesse de leurs vents avoisine les 120 kilomètres par heure. Les entonnoirs nuageux ou tubas, constituent souvent les prémices de tornades. Il s’agit de colonnes d’air en rotation ayant la forme d’un cône et situées sous un nuage orageux. Lorsque l’entonnoir nuageux touche le sol, on parle de tornade. De même, s’il touche l’eau, il devient une trombe marine.Découvrez les images : https://www.maxisciences.com/tornade/tornades-et-autres-phenomenes-meteorologiques-violents_art8057.htmlLe 10 juillet 2010 à 12:56 • Emmanuel Perrin
Marée noire au Mexique : des estimations plus précises sur les rejets de gaz et de pétrolePlus d’un an après la marée noire du Golfe du Mexique, la pire que les Etats-Unis aient jamais connue, des chercheurs ont réalisé une nouvelle estimation de la quantité de pétrole et de gaz rejetée dans la mer après l’explosion de la plate-forme Deepwater Horizon. 5 millions : c’est le nombre de barils de pétrole qui auraient été rejetés dans le Golfe du Mexique suite à l’explosion et au naufrage de la plate-forme de BP Deepwater Horizon en avril 2010. Cette estimation est donnée par des chercheurs de la Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, et rapportée par le site Sciences et Avenir. En accord avec les mesures réalisées par les autorités américaines, cette étude apporte de nouvelles précisions quant à la quantité de gaz qui a été rejetée au fond de la mer. À lire aussiPourquoi l’hélium change-t-il la voix ?Pour le déterminer, les chercheurs ont utilisé une technique de mesure du son. Grâce à deux instruments acoustiques installés sur un véhicule télécommandé, ils ont pu calculer la vitesse des flux rejetés, et distinguer le pétrole et le gaz. “Nous avons pu voir à l’intérieur de l’écoulement et faire des mesures de vitesse, ce qui n’est pas possible avec des instruments optiques. C’est un peu comme une vision aux rayons X”, explique le chercheur Richard Camili dans un article publié par la revue Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Les scientifiques ont ainsi pu déterminer qu’en plus des 5 millions de barils de pétrole, environ 3 millions de barils équivalent pétrole (BEP) de gaz ont été rejetés dans le Golfe du Mexique. Des résultats dont la marge d’erreur est inférieure à 20%, affirment les chercheurs qui entendent encore améliorer la précision de leurs estimations.Le 8 septembre 2011 à 14:46 • Maxime Lambert
Marek Hamsik’s agent has praised Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti for making his client into an ‘almost perfect’ deep-lying playmaker.Hamsik has taken Jorginho’s role at Napoli after the Italy midfielder signed for Chelsea, and Martin Petras believes Ancelotti has transformed his client. Football Italia reports.“Marek still needs to improve in his new role, but it’s inevitable that he will,” he said after Napoli’s 2-1 win at Lazio on Saturday.“Marek has great qualities and I think Ancelotti giving him this new role was excellent, almost perfect. It’ll be a new stimulus for him.Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“After all, you can always improve. Look at Federer, who continues to do so despite his age…“At the end of the game Marek was happy, his team won, it mattered for them and in my opinion he didn’t expect such a result at the Olimpico. No-one else did.“I think their players will be at peak fitness in a couple of weeks, in time for their Champions League debut.“Taking him off on 70 minutes? It was hot and a fair decision. It happened to him on Sunday, but it could happen to someone else next time.”

Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Controller Patent Teases SNES Games on Switch Their drama even forms the basis on Splatoon 2’s story mode, which debuted with a fantastic track.But while the first Splatoon had arguably the best, freshest music of any game that year, Splatoon 2 has already topped it. Every track I’ve heard is an absolute banger, totally memorable, and unique while keeping in line with the game’s “undersea cartoon Shibuya in a Sega Dreamcast game” ＡＥＳＴＨＥＴＩＣ.The Splatoon 2 Direct introduced us to the game’s new female music duo, Salt-N-Pepa-esque hip-hop waifus Pearl and Marina aka Off the Hook.

Doesn’t this just get you pumped to shoot ink (and also think about the implications of light-skinned squid Pearl being paired with dark-skinned octopus Marina in a world where squids and octopi are enemies)? Stay on target Nintendo recently aired a presentation detailing Splatoon 2, its upcoming Switch multiplayer shooter where cephalopod children blast each other with their own ink. As a sequel to a Wii U game, announcements were more small improvements than huge gameplay shakeups. The new umbrella weapon seems neat, players can monitor their progress with a separate smartphone app, and the Salmon Run co-op continues to look like a great addition (even if that and other content is bafflingly tied to a schedule if you’re not playing offline). But my biggest takeaway after this Direct is what while I’m excited to play Splatoon 2, I’m even more excited to listen to it.The first Splatoon had a great selection of tunes, irresistible fusions of rock and pop synth and dance beats filtered through the inscrutable urban kid squid culture and language, from its title track to its final boss. We’ve known of Splatoon 2’s undersea musical wonders from the beginning. The title song from the very first Splatoon 2 trailer was already fantastic. And at the Switch’s January reveal event we even got to see it performed live, gaining insight into how the real musicians who role-play as these fake bands produce the hypnotic, drowned, foreign country’s idea of gibberish vocal effects.Along with just being a fun and unique take on a multiplayer shooter, the world of Splatoon has always shined as a new contemporary franchise clearly driven by the youthful energy of the relatively young Nintendo employees given free reign to develop it. And music is one of the most vital ways for young people to carve their own identities. Fortunately, it sounds like Splatoon 2 is growing up without growing old.Want to learn more?

NSW and JTG are hoping to bring more people to the state NSW looks set to benefit from a new partnership between Destination NSW and The Jetset Travelworld Group (JTG) promoting the state as a tourism and events destination.Announced yesterday, the two-year AU$4 million marketing deal will allow Destination NSW access to JTG’s wholesale and retail brands across Australia and New Zealand as well as Qantas Vacations in North America and inbound tour operator ATS Pacific.Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Hospitality, Racing and the Arts George Souris said the partnership with JTG would provide “new opportunities for the packaging and promotion of a huge variety” of NSW tourism products as the government looked to double tourism expenditure in the state by 2020.“It’s a confident step forward that demonstrates the resolve behind Destination NSW, the new statutory authority which will be responsible for the marketing and promotion of the State’s tourism destinations, holiday experiences and events to drive visitation across the State,” Mr Souris commented. Destination NSW – Tourism executive director Lyndel Gray echoed the minister’s remarks, saying the relationship would boost NSW by allowing “businesses to access Australian and New Zealand marketing campaigns, travel agents, trade education programs and trade promotion”.JTG chief executive Peter Lacaze said the deal would help treat an inbound tourism industry hit hard by an explosion in outbound travel. “This new relationship will help to promote the value and diversity of NSW destinations and experiences in comparison to international travel,” the JTG boss said.“This agreement will bring focus to NSW as a travel destination across all the JTG brands and will assist our travel agent networks in growing their businesses, particularly in NSW where over 30 per cent of JTG’s national agency network is based.” Jayson Westbury, chief executive of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents called the announcement an endorsement of the Australian retail travel sector.”Packaged travel is a fantastic option for consumers who want a cost effective deal but don’t want to spend time finding flights, hotels, tours and so on,” Mr Westbury said.“Retail travel agents are experts in helping consumers find the right package to suit their timing and budget and there’s nothing like dealing with an agent for professional advice.”The hosting of the New Zealand Harvey World Travel Frontliners conference later this month will be one of the first undertakings of the new partnership, according to Mr Souris.

Larnaca bus drivers will go on an indefinite strike from Tuesday as their wages for June have not yet been paid, it was announced on Monday.In a written statement, the unions representing workers at the Zenon bus company said they have been informed that even if the salaries were paid, they would be slashed by 50 per cent.“According to the law, every employer is obliged to pay the salary of the employees in whole and not just part of the salary. At the same time, the company withholds various employees’ funds with the last payments made in February,” the statement said.It said that employees “have shown tremendous patience and understanding” over the problems with the company’s fleet including multiple mechanical problems.“The non-payment of their salary for June is the last straw and therefore the workers will go on an indefinite strike from tomorrow.”The island’s four public transport companies, Larnaca’s Zenon, Nicosia’s Osel, Limassol’s Emel, and Paphos bus company Osypa have been staging strikes on and off since late last year over non-payment of wages on time, and their demands to have benefits that were cut during the 2013 financial crisis restored.The unions have repeatedly said they are not being paid as a result of financial disagreements between their employers and the government and workers should not be used to resolve the disputes.They also called on the transport and labour ministry to attempt to resolve the problems once and for all.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
