University of Redlands women’s basketball coach Jim Ducey can only wonder what would have happened if his Bulldogs had gotten off to a better start. Redlands (13-7, 6-4) lost its first four Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference games, three by a combined margin of 11 points. It has bounced back to win its last six, but that might be too little too late with just four games remaining. Johnson, a senior from San Antonio, led the Coyotes to an 8-1 mark in the month. He is averaging 13.6 points and 4.5 rebounds. He also has 29 steals, 26 assists and 13 blocked shots. Snyder, of Norco, has started all 21 games. The senior is the second-leading rebounder (5.5 rpg) and one of the team’s defensive standouts. Cal State San Bernardino junior Jennifer Joy has been named Penn/CCAA women’s tennis player of the week. Joy, of Palm Desert, won both her singles matches last week, one against Master’s College and one against Hope International. She and doubles partner Leslie Horn split their matches. Joy, the regining CCAA Player of the Year, has 29 career singles wins, one shy of the school record held by her coach, Heather Lehman Langley. She has a chance to tie that record Friday in a match against Cal State Bakersfield. UC Riverside sophomore forward Amber Cox has been named Big West co-player of the week. She averaged 16.5 points, 7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 blocks in two games last week. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

As expected, the Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team dropped to second in the Division II West Region rankings released Wednesday. Humboldt State (18-3, 13-3) moved into the top spot while the Coyotes (16-5, 12-4) fell to second after a loss to Cal Poly Pomona. The Broncos (15-6, 11-5) are third. The team that finishes first typically is awarded hosting rights for the postseason tournament. The Coyotes have six games left, including road games this weekend at Chico State and Cal State Stanislaus, both bottom-tier teams in the conference. Meanwhile, the Cal State San Bernardino women moved from eighth to sixth after three wins in five days. The Coyotes (15-6, 11-5) have four wins over teams in the top 10, including one over No. 1 UC San Diego. They will play at No. 2 Chico State on Friday. There are six CCAA teams among the region’s top nine. Cal State San Bernardino basketball players Ivan Johnson and Denise Snyder have been named athletes of the month for January by the Coyotes Athletic Association. A win tonight at frontrunner La Verne (16-5, 9-1) would help, though. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (12-9, 7-3) also stands between the Bulldogs and the top spot. Junior point guard Valarie Katayama (12.2 ppg, 4.8 apg) totaled 23 points and four assists in the Bulldogs’ win over the Athenas on Saturday. Others pitching in are freshman guard Ali Bueno (9.3 ppg), junior forward Alison Lavine (8.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg) and senior defensive standout Rachae Bell.

One of the mising pets, Otto, which was found safe after being stolen from its Letterkenny home.Christmas has come early for one Donegal family after their three stolen pet greyhounds were found safe and well.The McKeever family were left devastated on Saturday morning after they awoke to find their home broken into and their beloved dogs taken.The gate at the rear of their home in Letterkenny had been twisted and the three pets taken from sheds. Dad John McKeever said his family were left heartbroken as they had raised the two pups from a litter of 13 which were born last January.“We heard barking in the middle of the night but didn’t think much of it.“But when we woke up we knew the gate had been twisted off and the dogs were gone.“We were just gutted that anybody would do such a thing,” said John. John revealed the whoever stole the dogs from his home at Ballymacool were prepared as they had their own leads and did not steal any of the dog’s leads which were hanging in the sheds.The family including John’s wife Noreen and children Grainne, 19, ad Ronan, 21, immediately put the word out by social media about the missing pets.John said “I would have always been skeptical about social media and Facebook but I have seen first-hand the power of it.“We had everyone looking for the dogs and it wasn’t long before we had people making a number of possible sightings,” he said.And to the family’s delight just before 6pm on Saturday evening, a young boy called to the house and said he had found the dogs straying on the street. John said he would not like to think what would have happened to the family’s pets if they had not launched a search for the dogs named Tiger, Otto and Buddy.“The mother dog Tiger is old so they might have just dumped her or shot her and the two pups would probably have been used for lurching.“We’re just so thankful to have them back because we have had them since they were born.“The next time the kids are on Facebook all day, I won’t be giving out too much,” laughed John.

It’s not “evolution,” it’s “biological changes over time,” asserts Georgia Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox. But sometimes good intentions can make both sides of a dispute upset, reports MSNBC News. Pro-evolutionists think the state is trying to water down the teaching of evolution, and anti-evolutionists think changing the word does not change the meaning. Cox explained that the suggestion does not alter textbooks or forbid teachers from using the E word. No one seems to like the idea, however. Former President Jimmy Carter was incensed: “As a Christian, a trained engineer and scientist, and a professor at Emory University, I am embarrassed by Superintendent Kathy Cox’s attempt to censor and distort the education of Georgia’s students.” A Democratic Congressman thought the move was throwing a bone to the conservatives, but a Republican reacted negatively for different reasons: “It’s stupid. It’s like teaching gravity without using the word gravity.” The suggestion appeared in a draft of a revised science curriculum, to be debated in public hearings and voted on by the Georgia school board in May.In the cartoon strip Hagar the Horrible, the Viking marauder once warned his shipboard cook, the milktoast born loser Lucky Eddie, that the crew was so sick of fish balls for breakfast, lunch and dinner, that if he didn’t come up with a new recipe he would be tossed overboard. Later, with a look of triumph, he lifted the cover on his latest concoction. “What’s that?” the curious crew members inquired disdainfully. Lucky Eddie proudly announced, “fish cubes!” (Last frame deleted due to violence.) The problem with evolution is not the E word itself. It’s the content associated with the word. When Darwin wrote The Origin of Species, the word evolution was not even in vogue; most called it “transformism” or common descent. The issue is, do we want students to be taught a philosophy (naturalism) as science? Do we want them hearing one side of a very controversial idea, that humans evolved from bacteria, an idea not only lacking proof but contrary to the best established scientific laws? Then teach the controversy about the concept of evolution rather than try to remove controversy through euphemism and appeasement. The only thing dumber in this story than Cox’s proposal is President Carter’s reaction to it. If he really were embarrassed by the censorship and distortion going on in Georgia public schools, he would advocate the overthrow of the Darwin Party’s totalitarian regime that forbids debate over evolution. And if he were a true Christian or scientist or both, he would be incensed at science falsely so called.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Indian opener Rohit Sharma, who has recently been appointed as the vice-captain of the limited-overs team, on Thursday said he is excited with the prospect of stepping onto the field in his new role when the national side head into the five-match ODI series, beginning August 20 in Dambulla.Honoured to be named as the vice-skipper of the national side, Rohit said that he did not even dream about the same 10 years ago and was only focused on playing for the Indian team.”It is a huge honour to be appointed as the vice-captain. Ten years ago, I was only thinking of playing for India. And being a vice-captain now feels really good. There will be some sort of goals when I will play the first ODI on August 20. I am looking forward to it. Rather than thinking too much about it. Yes, it will be a good opportunity for me to get onto the field. The last few years have been really good. So, we just need to continue that,” Rohit, who leads Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL), said. (Also Read: Can India afford to play 2019 World Cup without MS Dhoni)Rohit, however, was rested for the recently-concluded three-match Test series against Lanka, which the visitors went on to clinch by 3-0.When quizzed about the same, the 30-year-old said that he had not dwelled upon the same and instead focused on improving his skills and backing his strengths.”Yes, nobody likes to sit out, but again it all depends upon the team dynamics. What the captain and the coach wants to pick and you have to accept the fact and move forward. That is what I have been doing. I kept working on my skills, my ability wherever I need to work on and see wherever I can improve as a cricketer. You cannot sit and waste time. All I was doing these past three weeks is just to improve my skills, seeing wherever I am going wrong and trying to strengthen the strength I have,” he said.advertisementTalking about their opposition, Rohit said that Lanka are a really good team who performed exceedingly well during Champions Trophy, however, adding that his side are fully focused on playing consistence cricket which they have been playing over the few years.”The squad in Champions Trophy was a very good side. We clearly saw they defeated us quite comfortably. 320 was never going to be easy especially on England conditions. But they batted fearlessly and took the game away from us. They are a very good team,” Rohit said.”We are going to do what we have been doing for the past few years. We are going to stick to our strength. We have been playing good cricket. West Indies was good, Champions Trophy was good as well except that one game. But that can happen. In the past two years, we have been playing some consistent cricket in the ODIs format. As far as I am concerned, we just need to look as to what we need to do as a team and bring out the best onto the team,” he added.Rohit has also been named vice-captain for the lone T20 clash against Sri Lanka to be played on September 6 at the R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.
