first_img Comments When Syracuse lost 3-0 to Connecticut in September, SU head coach Ange Bradley called the loss a “learning moment.”“This is an opportunity of, where do we want to get in November?” Bradley said after the game.Syracuse’s next game is Nov. 1, and the Orange still haven’t solved an issue that’s plagued them most of the season.No. 17 Syracuse (8-7, 1-5 Atlantic Coast) is headed into the ACC tournament Thursday against No. 3 Duke on the NCAA tournament bubble, partially because the Orange have struggled to prevent opposing teams from going on scoring runs. Four times this season, SU has lost a game it led in. The Orange have conceded goals in bunches, and now, SU is in danger of missing the 18-team NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007.“We have to stay tuned in mentally,” Roos Weers, SU’s most experienced defender, said. “Sometimes, either we’re down early and didn’t start 100 percent fresh, or we’re up early and we kind of lose focus.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis problem dates back to the fourth game of the season, when SU scored the opening goal against Virginia. The lead didn’t hold, and the Cavaliers scored 42 seconds later, eventually winning in double overtime. At that point, it was the Orange’s first loss of the season. Now, Virginia sits at No. 16 in the NFHCA Coaches’ Poll, one spot ahead of SU. That extra conference loss could prove the difference in the Orange’s tournament chances.Syracuse led by two goals against California on Oct. 7, but then Claire Webb received a yellow card. While she sat in the chair near the scorers table, the Orange conceded twice in five minutes. With one fewer player, SU was opened up on the counterattack for the first goal, and Melina Moore knocked the ball out of the air to score. It was 2-1, and Syracuse remained on the defensive.Four minutes after Cal’s first goal, SU conceded again, this time on a penalty corner. Before another ball was hit, Bradley called timeout. The Orange had blown a two-goal lead against a 3-8 team. Syracuse won 4-2 that day, but the lapses in focus remained an issue.“We wanted to start with a fresh start in October, we’re 2-0,” Weers said after that game.It was the last win SU had in October.Laura Angle | Digital Design EditorThe Orange tried to settle down after conceding goals by earning penalty corners, senior Jamie Martin said. They practice corner routines for almost an hour a day. With Weers’ drag flick as a key goal scoring weapon, the Orange turn to her to provide stability.“She (Bradley) reminds us to stick to what we’ve learned,” Martin said. “She always talks about trusting the process.”Defending penalty corners, though, has proven more difficult for SU.After the win against Cal, Syracuse took the lead in the eighth minute against then-No. 16 Wake Forest. Ten minutes later, the Orange had conceded two penalty corner goals and trailed. Syracuse lost 4-1, conceding all four goals off set pieces.On senior night against then-No.10 Louisville, Weers’ two goals vaulted the Orange into a late lead. Needing a win to avoid its worst ACC regular season record since joining the conference, the Orange allowed two goals off penalty corners and lost 3-2.After the game, Bradley said the team had failed its seniors.“It’s focus and preparation,” Martin said on Oct. 24. “We’re young, so there’s always going to be a learning curve. We’re getting better at it every game, so we just have to continue to grow.”Yet against then-No. 12 St. Joseph’s on Saturday, the Orange wasted a sixth-minute lead. Freshman Kira Wimbert entered the game and scored within a minute. Then, the Orange conceded two goals in 56 seconds.Even after equalizing just before halftime, Syracuse needed a strong second half showing and a win to almost ensure a berth in the NCAA tournament. The Orange conceded two goals in the opening 15 minutes of the second half. Coming out of halftime, SJU pounced on the Orange’s sluggish passing and movement.“They wanted it more than we did,” Weers said. “If we had won that game we would have been in a way better position than we are at the moment. We got a little distracted. We focused too much on the score and the time.”Heading into the game against Duke, Syracuse sits at No. 10 in RPI, a promising sign for their tournament chances. But its coaches’ poll ranking is No. 17, too low for them to qualify for one of the eight at-large bids. Weers said Thursday is a must-win. Martin agreed.“We need to focus on getting one more,” Martin said. “If we lose Thursday, I think we’re done.” Published on October 30, 2018 at 11:55 pm Contact Anthony: [email protected]center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Abby Moloughney charged at a loose puck with a St. Lawrence defender trailing right behind her. Moloughney was second to the puck, but as she tried to chop the puck, she collided with a St. Lawrence defender. She fell to the ice in pain, clutching her arm. Already down to 10 forwards for the game, Syracuse was now down to only nine. She did not return.Syracuse (2-11, 1-2 College Hockey America) ran out of steam and lost in the opening seconds of overtime 4-3 to St. Lawrence (5-4-3, 2-1-1 ECAC Hockey). Goalie Ady Cohen and forwards Brynn Koocher and Marielle McHale were battling injuries and could do nothing as their team lost for the 11th time this season. The Orange only had 10 forwards, seven defenders and one healthy goalie, while the Saints had all 12 forwards, seven defenders, and three goalies to work with. Down one goal with only half a period left, defender Jessica DiGirolamo picked up the puck in her own zone. DiGirolamo then lasered a stretch pass right onto the tape of forward Savannah Rennie’s stick. Rennie was one of the players who had to log more minutes than usual to make up for the shortened bench.Rennie entered the offensive zone with a full head of steam. One-on-one with the goalie, she roofed the puck to tie the game at three.Fast forward into overtime and Rennie was on the ice again as St. Lawrence picked up the puck on a three on two. She tried to skate back, but it was too late as a wide open player on the Saints buried the game winner just 20 seconds into overtime. Another loss piled on, but the injuries could have more of an impact on SU going forward.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think it always hurts when we’re missing part of our team,” said Rennie. “Everyone is here for a certain role, a certain purpose and when someone’s out it’s obviously going to hurt us.”Defender Lindsay Eastwood is used to logging big minutes for the Orange. Eastwood and the defense had to face four lines of the St. Lawrence attack compared to SU’s three lines by the end of the match. The Orange did not have enough forwards to play a fourth line. Eastwood agreed with Rennie that the injuries hurt the team. “It sucks when we are down a couple people,” said Eastwood. “We have a short lineup to begin with.”When healthy, the Orange have just enough players to have four forwards lines and seven defenders and would not have healthy scratches. SU head coach Paul Flanagan confirmed postgame that Cohen, Koocher and McHale all missed the game because of undisclosed injuries suffered prior to Saturday’s game. “She’s (Cohen) been out two weeks and the target date I heard is the 19th which is Tuesday,” said Flanagan. “The other two that’s totally up in the air I have no idea.”St Lawrence had four more players than the Orange. The Saints took advantage of the numbers advantage midway through the game as they switched goalies. Syracuse did not have this option, with Cohen out injured. Despite being undermanned, Flanagan does not attribute the loss to injuries. “That would be an excuse,” said Flanagan. “We got enough kids.” Comments Published on November 16, 2019 at 6:57 pm Contact Gaurav: [email protected]last_img read more

first_imgRecords Management systems are becoming ever more important in their role of protecting against risks that might result from litigation or disaster.  RM systems are often a key component of a Compliance strategy, such as those mandated by regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, FDA-CRP 21, and others.  In the United States and increasingly in other countries, public and private organizations are using Records Management systems that are based on the 5015.2 standard.At the heart of 5015.2 is the File Plan concept.  This is a taxonomy or a method for classifying documents.  File Plans are pre-defined classification schemes that are adopted by an entire organization.  Normal users of the RM system are not able to change the structure of the File Plan.  This kind of rigid classification is similar to the classification hierarchies for content used by Web Search Engines like Yahoo! or Google.Within RM, when a document is classified as a record, document classification and retention periods for the record are assigned based on the File Plan.  File plans are also often sometimes referred to as Business Classification Schemes (BCS).The main purpose for having a file plan is to ensure that document/records are filed in a consistent manner.  As a corollary to this, consistent filing should  improve the success of being able to retrieve documents managed this way.  As part of the File Plan, documents are also assigned document life-cycle retention information.Typically File Plan information within the electronic RM system is maintained as additional metadata associated with the document.  Conceptually the File Plan is laid out hierarchical folders, similar to the directory structure for files stored on a PC.  An example File Plan can be seen here as used by the EPA.Folders within a File Plan represent more than just organizational structure.  Documents when declared as records and stored in folders of the RM File Plan will inherit properties of the folder that include user access permissions, business metadata and retention policies.Declaring records then is the process of classifying the document within the File Plan.  Once classified, documents could then be located by navigating the File Plan directory-like structure or by a full text index search that can be made across all documents in the File Plan.last_img read more

first_imgBy BEN HARRISFormer Australian referee Rick Borg said he was honoured to have a medal recognising the top referee at the 2013 X-Blades National Touch League named after him.The inaugural medal will be presented to the number one whistle-holder of the tournament at the conclusion of the Elite Eight men’s opens final tomorrow.In the past, only the leading female and male referees were recognised.This year, however, Touch Football Australia have included the Rick Borg medal as well.“I want to thank TFA and the TFA board for giving me this recognition. I’m just really stoked and humbled and honoured to have this award,” Borg said.The Queenslander began refereeing in 1989. He was Australia’s number one man in the middle from 1993 until his retirement in 2004.These days he is on the referee’s coaching panel and oversees the next generation of whistle blowers.He said returning to Coffs Harbour was special for him.“Being at Coffs Harbour on this field [field one] is where I retired so it has brought back memories and it is so great to be back here again.”He has many career highlights but there are a few that stand out.“Probably refereeing the Trans-Tasman Test Series. It is probably the ultimate goal in touch football,” he said.“I’ve been to four World Cups but there is nothing better than refereeing Australia and New Zealand.“And probably the inaugural State of Origin Series where that all-in brawl happened. That was a bit of an eye-opener.”You can keep up-to-date with all of the latest news and information from the 2013 X-Blades National Touch League in the following ways:Websiteswww.ntl.mytouchfooty.comwww.austouch.com.auSocial MediaFacebook – www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustraliaTwitter – www.twitter.com/touchfootyaus (be sure to use the hashtag #NTL2013)Instagram – search for ‘Touch Football Australia’YouTube – www.youtube.com/touchfootballausTouch Football Australia will be live streaming matches on their YouTube page.Related LinksRick Borg medallast_img read more
