The American Chemical Society (ACS) recently named Philip Bays, professor emeritus of chemistry at Saint Mary’s, and Anthony Serianni, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Notre Dame as ACS Fellows. Bays said he is impressed with those previously distinguished as ACS Fellows and is humbled to be among that group. “I viewed most of the nominees to have served in ACS governance for many years, or have been researchers who have made important discoveries, or have had significant impact on the public with their outreach work on behalf of chemistry,” Bays said. “I did not see myself in any of those categories.” Bays said the national ACS Committee on Project SEED nominated him for the award. According to the ACS website, the Project SEED summer research program opens new doors for economically disadvantaged students to experience what it’s like to be a chemist. For the past three summers, Bays has worked with Dr. Mary Prorok at Notre Dame to place economically disadvantaged students into summer research positions, he said. “I saw the honor as a breakthrough in terms of recognizing people from small colleges who work so hard to teach and to mentor students and are so often overlooked when compared to people from larger organizations,” Bays said. “I also am excited that the honor places a spotlight on the accomplishments of the Project SEED program and the students who are mentored though it.” Serianni said he was also honored to join an accomplished and distinguished group of ACS Fellows. “I hope to be able to sustain the level of work that the ACS has chosen to acknowledge and expects will continue,” Serianni said. He hopes the recognition will have a positive impact on science education at Notre Dame, he said. “We are continuously striving to raise the quality and impact of our undergraduate and graduate science programs at Notre Dame,” Serianni said. “One metric of quality derives from the awards, distinctions and honors that faculty receive, especially from outside the University. I like to think that receiving this award contributes to this effort in a small but meaningful way.” Serianni said he has many hopes for the future after achieving such an honor. “I hope to share my experience as an academic researcher and entrepreneur with persons and groups outside the University more regularly, and perhaps transition into a community leader down the line where my scientific expertise can be put to more practical use,” Serianni said. Serianni thanked his wife and family, students and collaborators, professors at Albright College and Michigan State, and coworkers at Omicron Biochemicals who all supported his research without any reservations. “The truth about awards and honors is that you rarely see the externalities. Personal achievement, however defined, is misleading,” Serianni said. “It comes at costs paid by people who care about, support and encourage the honoree.” Contact Madeline Miles at [email protected]
Mario Paleka is the new director of the Tourist Board of the City of Zadar, it was decided at today’s session held at the Bastion Hotel by the Tourist Board of the Tourist Board chaired by Mayor Branko Dukić, reports the portal eZadar.hr.Today, there are seven candidates left (Hrvoje Anić, Šime Šokota, Ива Бенцун, Željka Benčik, Mario Paleka, Stjepan Vrsalović, and Jure Javoran presented its programs, and according to the court five members of the Tourist Board of the Tourist Board, the best program was offered by Mario Paleka and was elected the new director of the Tourist Board of the city of Zadar.Hrvoje Anić received three votes, and Iva Bencun one, while Mario Paleka received five votes. By the way, Mario Paleka is a kinesiologist by profession, and currently holds the position of president of the Supervisory Board of NK Zadar. So much for the profession.PROFESSION AND MARKET DEVELOPMENT OR POLICY AND STATUS QUO?The tourist profession is furious about the selection of the new director of the Zadar Tourist Board, solely because the selection was based on the old political line, and not on the professional side. It is enough to just look at the CV and business trip of Mr. Paleka, and say Ivo Bencun or Hrvoje Anić, who were opponents. In the beginning, you can see who did what and what the result was. Whether he has practical or political experience. Also, it is interesting and symbolic that the session was chaired for the first time by the Mayor of Zadar Branko Dukić. Smart enough.In the whole story, the least important is the diploma, whether it exists or not and what profession it is (of course it is always desirable to have a university education), the only important thing is specific market experience, competencies, knowledge and vision of development. What someone has done so far, what projects he has worked on and led, and practical market experience. Of course, in the whole story we should talk about market development and market processes, not political functions, but that is why we are where we are. Do we want market and strategic development or status quo and inertia. We are either growing or stagnant, ie we are losing pace with the competition.And then we wonder how to proceed? Not at all.
Richmond, In. — Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a single vehicle ORV accident that resulted in a juvenile being life-lined to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.At approximately 6:31 p.m. Friday, officers were dispatched to the area of 2400 South A Street in Richmond for a juvenile injured as a result of falling from an off-road vehicle.The initial investigation has revealed that a 15 year-old juvenile was operating a newly purchased ORV on a city street with a 13 year-old juvenile passenger. While the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, the 13 year-old for unknown reasons attempted to jump off. In the process of jumping, the juvenile fell and suffered a severe head injury.The injured juvenile was initially transported to Reid Health Hospital in Richmond, but due to the seriousness of injuries, was then life-lined to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis in critical condition.Neither operator nor victim was wearing a helmet or proper safety equipment. Indiana Conservation Officers stress safe operation of ORVs and the use of proper protective equipment such as helmets.The investigation into this incident is still ongoing.
Published on January 31, 2014 at 4:06 am Facebook Twitter Google+ Duke 80, Syracuse 67, March 21, 1998No. 5-seed Syracuse had a chance to upset No. 1-seed Duke and advance to the Elite Eight. The score was tied at 49 with 12:21 to go. SU was hanging around despite being the clear underdog. Duke’s roster was loaded with talented players Elton Brand, Shane Battier and Trajan Langdon. Syracuse had Jason Hart, Etan Thomas and Marius Janulis, but was outmatched on paper.The Orangemen didn’t let the difficult matchup faze them, and they nearly shocked the world. Duke (32-3) held SU off, though, beating Syracuse (26-9), 80-67, in front of 40,589 at Tropicana Field. Brand finished with 20 points and 14 rebounds, Battier added 14 and seven, and Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils used an 11-0 spurt to pull away in the second half. Duke’s offense averaged 85.1 points per game on the season, which was good for sixth in the country. But on Saturday, its defense was just as good. SU shot just 38.1 percent from the field and 61.9 percent from the line, struggling to generate any consistency against Duke’s aggressive defense. Syracuse finished with 16 turnovers, as the Blue Devils’ defense proved stymying when it mattered most.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor seven-and-a-half minutes, Syracuse was silenced. A 49-49 game quickly transformed into a 60-49 cushion for Duke. The game was nearly even the rest of the way, but it didn’t matter. Duke was going to the Elite Eight and the Orangemen were going home. Duke scored 40 points in both halves. Its consistent offensive output, coupled with steady defense, propelled it past SU. The Blue Devils pulled away thanks in part to a breakaway dunk by Chris Carrawell, who scored 10 points. Battier stole the ball and threw it up ahead to Carrawell, who flushed it home.William Avery hit a 3, which upped Duke’s lead during its pivotal run. Krzyzewski said Avery was crucial during the stretch and he helped Duke pull away. Duke burst out to a 14-5 lead at the start of the game, looking every bit the part of a No. 1 seed. SU had trouble converting around the basket, while the Blue Devils hit shots from all angles.The Orangemen embarked on a mini spurt, but Duke ensured SU never seized the lead. A 28-16 Duke advantage turned into a 28-24 game, thanks to an 8-0 run by SU. But the Blue Devils closed the half on a 12-6 tear to bump the lead back to double digits. Duke outrebounded SU by 11 and racked up more assists and blocks than the Orangemen. It was the kind of complete game necessary in the NCAA Tournament, and Duke’s superb all-around performance paved the way to victory.Jim Boeheim’s team couldn’t slow down the high-octane offense of Krzyzewski’s crew.Brand, who was the first pick in the 1999 NBA Draft the following year, was the best player on the floor. He dominated inside, hitting 10-of-14 field goals in 29 minutes. The Blue Devils fell to Kentucky, 86-84 in the next round, failing to advance to the Final Four. – compiled by Trevor Hass, asst. sports editor, [email protected], @TrevorHass Comments

PHOTO @NNRunningTeamCheptegei pockets Ug sh213 million for world recordKampala, Uganda | LOUIS JADWONG | Joshua Cheptegei became only the second Ugandan athlete after legend John Akii-Bua to set a world best time, with his stunning run Sunday at the 15km NN Zevenheuvelenloop (Seven Hills Race) in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.The 22-year-old Ugandan World Championships 10,000m silver medalist continued his rise in long distance athletics by running the world’s fastest 15k in 41.05 minutes, taking 8 seconds off the previous mark set in 2010.It is his fourth win in the event, and this time pocketed a bonus 50,000 Euros (Sh213 million) prize for the record. The Nijmegen race is a favourite for Cheptegei, who as a nineteen, twenty and 21-year-old, won the 32nd, 33rd and 34 editions before in 42.39, 42.12 and 41.13.The Seven Hills Race Zevenheuvelenloop is considered the fastest course in the world, and the best time held before Sunday was by Leonard Komon of Kenya who ran a time of 41:13 in 2010.In the foot-steps of Akii BuaCheptegei’s feat Sunday puts him in the league of world beaters, first achieved by Uganda’s most famous athlete, hurdler John Akii-Bua in 1972. Interestingly, like Akii-Bua, Cheptegei runs for Police.Akii-Bua’s feat will live in memory. Not only did he brake the world record, he also became the first ever to run under 48 seconds in what is considered a highly technical discipline, the 400m hurdles.He clocked 47.82 in that Munich Olympics final in Germany to take a phenomenal 0.3 seconds off the record set by the then greatest hurdler David Hemery four years earlier. More remarkable, was he run that final from the inside lane – considered the least favorite position in the one lap race.After finishing fourth in the 1970 Commonwealth Games and running the fastest time of 1971, he was still not a big favourite for that 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, having limited competitive experience.He missed the 1976 Olympics and a showdown with United States rival Edwin Moses because of the boycott by Uganda and other African nations. Edwin Moses went on to set a new world record in 1976 and to reign until Kevin Young became the first man to run under 47 seconds in 1992. Akii Bua died an unhappy man in 1997, a lesson for many of today’s Ugandan athletes who have now invested heavily in their future, and life after sports.Akii-Bua was one of the geniuses among athletes, according to his British coach Malcom ArnoldHow Cheptegei won the NN Seven Hills Race Cheptegei took the lead in the beginning of the race and he saw his pacers drop off early so he had to run the second part of the race alone. Cheptegei managed to hold his pace and continued to race towards the finish line. After having won:“After 10km I was above the schedule of the world record so I decided to accelerate at 12km. The last kilometer was hard but I really enjoyed. I am very proud of my achievement and want to thank the organization and my team,”Cheptegei said shortly after crossing the finish line.Cheptegei is a member of the NN Running team, that has world marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge and Uganda’s only other Olympic Gold medalist Stephen Kiprotich, in their ranks.According to an NN statement after the race, they said they started tracking Cheptegei when he became World Junior Champion in Eugene, Oregon in 2014 ( gold in 10,000m, 4th in the 5,000m).In 2015, Joshua won the 10,000m at the African Championships, and was 9th in Beijing World Champs 10,000m. In 2016, Joshua was 6th in the 10,000m and 8th in the 5,000m in Rio Olympics.In 2017, the young Ugandan athlete took silver battling Mo Farah in the London 10,000m, in what many believe was the finest 10,000m race in decades. Joshua started 2018 with brilliant wins over 10,000m and 5,000m at the Commonwealth Games.On the roads this season, Cheptegai ran 45:15 for 10 miles in Amsterdam Dam to Damloop on 23 September. He followed that up with 27:16 on October 23 at the Durban 10k in South Africa. His WR today is a fitting end to his 2018 season.On the women’s side in the Netherlands success, it was double success for Uganda as Stella Chesang, the Commonwealth Champion on the 10,000m won the race in a fast time of 47:19.Selected word records 1500 m3:26.00Hicham El Guerrouj MAR14 Jul 1998Golden GalaRome 10,000 m (track)26:17.53Kenenisa Bekele ETH26 Aug 2005Memorial Van DammeBrussels 1000 m2:11.96Noah Ngeny KEN5 Sep 1999Rieti MeetingRieti 2000 m4:44.79Hicham El Guerrouj MAR7 Sep 1999ISTAFBerlin 15 km (road)41:05Joshua Cheptegei UGA18 Nov 2018ZevenheuvelenloopNijmegen 3000 m7:20.67Daniel Komen KEN1 Sep 1996Rieti MeetingRieti Half marathon58:23Zersenay Tadese ERI21 Mar 2010Lisbon Half MarathonLisbon EventPerf.Athlete(s)Nat.DateMeetingLocation 5000 m12:37.35Kenenisa Bekele ETH31 May 2004Fanny Blankers-Koen GamesHengelo Share on: WhatsApp
Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Villanova returns to Final Four, beat Texas Tech Allen never found his rhythm in Omaha. He was 7 for 28 in games against Syracuse and Kansas, 5 for 23 on 3-pointers. He made clutch free throws late in regulation to keep the Blue Devils tied or in the lead against Kansas. His only field goal since the first half, though, was a meaningless 3-pointer four seconds before Kansas started celebrating its victory.Allen’s four seasons at Duke were over, and off the court walked — depending on your perspective — one of the most reviled or celebrated college basketball players in America.“It’s like a shock to your body because you don’t plan for a loss,” Allen said. “You expect to keep going and going. Then it’s so abrupt when it hits you. It’s over. I can’t really wrap my head around it yet.”It was at the 2015 Final Four that Allen burst onto the scene. He was the fourth and often overlooked member of Duke’s heralded freshman class that year. He ended up scoring 16 points in the national championship game in a win over Wisconsin that gave the Blue Devils their fifth title.He put off entering the NBA draft after his sophomore and junior years because he loved Duke, loved college basketball and wanted a chance to play for another Final Four and championship.ADVERTISEMENT Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski, right, talks with Grayson Allen (3), Marvin Bagley III (35) and Trevon Duval (1) during the second half of a regional final game against Kansas in the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament Sunday, March 25, 2018, in Omaha, Neb. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)OMAHA, Neb. — Grayson Allen curled to the left side of the lane, jumped and kicked out his left leg a bit as he let fly the shot that would send Duke to the Final Four over two Kansas defenders.With the clock showing less than a second left in regulation, the ball teasingly bounced off the backboard, hit the front of the rim, bounced off the backboard and rim once more — and swirled out to the right.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He’s a national champion. He’s been our leader this year,” coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “He’s one of the outstanding players to have ever played in our program.”For all he did statistically as a playmaker and 14.1-point career scorer, Krzyzewski remembers him this season for his leadership and ability to mesh with four outstanding freshmen in the lineup, especially after the switch to a zone defense in mid-February.“And you’re a shot away, a roll away from being in the Final Four,” Krzyzewski said.Had that last shot in regulation fallen, it still wouldn’t have undone the things Allen will long be remembered for at Duke. On Saturday, Allen said he had accepted and embraced his reputation among all those Duke haters.The Atlantic Coast Conference reprimanded him for appearing to deliberately trip two players in 2016. Last year he tripped an opponent and was suspended for one game by Coach K and had his team captain’s title removed.Allen mostly stayed out of trouble this season, except for when he put a hip check on North Carolina’s Garrison Brooks in the ACC Tournament.“Obviously I went through a lot of ups and downs, a lot of rough moments, a rough patch last year,” he said.His hope, of course, was to extend his senior season one more week in San Antonio.“All my plans for playing in the Final Four aren’t going to happen,” he said. “That’s why it’s hard to grasp. So many emotions come forward at once. I feel I could smile and cry all at once.” “I thought it was in,” star big man Marvin Bagley III said.So did Allen, who watched as the ball fell away. Sunday’s game stayed tied 72-72 and was headed for overtime. Kansas’ Malik Newman, the Midwest Region Most Outstanding player, took over from there, and the Jayhawks won 85-81 .FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSeason over for Duke.
