The Nelson Leafs reeled off its third consecutive Kootenay International Junior Hockey League win Friday night in Grand Forks, edging the home town Border Bruins 2-1.The 15-3-1-0-1 Leafs maintain its five-point lead in the Murdoch Division over Beaver Valley Nitehawks.The Hawks posted a 6-2 win Friday in Golden. Justin Podgorenko, finishing the game with two points to lead Nelson, and Jaiden LaPorte gave the Leafs a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes.Dalton Luce gave the Bruins some hope with a goal midway through the third period.However, Nelson’s Game Star and netminder Josh Williams closed the door on the Bruins, stopping nine of 10 shots in the period to preserve the win.Nelson, winners of both games this season against the Bruins, out shot Grand Forks 58-28 in the game.The Leafs are idle Saturday before completing weekend action Sunday in Castlegar against the Rebels.Castlegar won its fifth straight game Friday, 5-2 over Spokane Braves.
The Trump administration has issued its first written notification that the US intends to withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate agreement.But in the notice to the United Nations the US state department said Washington would remain in the talks process.President Donald Trump drew international condemnation in June when he first announced the US intention to withdraw.He said the deal “punished” the US and would cost millions of American jobs.Friday’s announcement is seen as largely symbolic as no nation seeking to leave the pact can officially announce an intention to withdraw until 4 November 2019.The process of leaving then takes another year, meaning it would not be complete until just weeks after the US presidential election in 2020.Any new US president could then decide to rejoin the agreement. “Today, the United States submitted a communication to the United Nations in its capacity as depositary for the Paris Agreement regarding the US intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement as soon as it is eligible to do so,” the US statement read.“The United States will continue to participate in international climate change negotiations and meetings… to protect US interests and ensure all future policy options remain open to the administration.” In June, Trump indicated he was open to another climate deal “on terms that are fair to the United States”.However, key signatories to the accord quickly ruled that out. The Paris Agreement took decades to finalise.The US stance on climate change also caused divisions at the G20 summit in Germany last month.A joint summit statement said it “took note of the decision of the United States of America to withdraw from the Paris Agreement”.However, leaders of the other G20 members agreed the accord was “irreversible”.

Donal Power Tags:#Buckingham Palace#Internet of Things#IoT#London#Mesh#Mesh Networking#Silver Springs#smartcity#Starfish How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Follow the Puck London’s Westminster City will soon be wired with the Silver Spring Networks’ Starfish Internet of Things (IoT) mesh network, transforming the venerable neighborhood of palaces and cathedrals into a modern smart city.The firm announced its latest deployment in a media announcement against the backdrop of the Internet of Things World Conference and Exposition, in Santa Clara, Calif.Silicon Valley-headquartered Silver Spring will expand its Starfish IoT network in collaboration with go-to-market partner urbancontrol. The project will activate a wireless IPv6 mesh canopy across London’s Westminster City that includes such tourist attractions as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral, the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey.Westminster City Council is planning to initially connect more than 4,000 lighted signs and traffic poles via the IoT network as part of its “Smart Signs” program that will improve public safety and reduce operational costs.“Westminster is taking an innovative approach to managing their assets to create even greater efficiencies and experiences by leveraging a two-way digital communication platform,” said urbancontrol director Stuart Wilson. “Our hope is that other boroughs will adopt proven technology and open standards in order to provide a seamless experience for the public throughout London, as they consider their long-terms plans for additional smart city and IoT services.”Silver Springs network coming to other cities soonStarfish enables access to a public IoT network platform that can connect industrial IoT equipment with the backing of service level agreements (SLAs). This network will be of use to commercial enterprises, highway and transportation departments, administrations, city agencies, public lighting operators and utilities.In the future Silver Spring plans to roll out Starfish in San Jose, San Antonio, Chicago, Bristol, Copenhagen, Glasgow and Kolkata.“By embracing IoT technology, cities can enhance the sharing of information between people and their city to deliver a more efficient, prosperous and economically thriving community,” said Silver Spring Networks’s Executive Vice President of Global Development Eric Dresselhuys.

Chelsea veteran Giroud: I’ve been helping Abrahamby Ansser Sadiq16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea veteran Olivier Giroud is not throwing his toys out of the pram at the club.The French striker has been struggling to get regular game time at the club this season.But rather than sulking about his position, he is taking steps to help his young striking teammate Tammy Abraham.The two may compete for a starting spot, but Giroud is happy to pass along what he knows to the youngster.”It’s true that competition at Chelsea is tough,” he told The Athletic.”But it’s good for the team, for us to be there to step up. It helps to have players like myself that want to be back in the team and never give up.”Tammy is doing very well now. He is very efficient up front. What can I say? I’m just waiting for my turn. I work hard in training with a good spirit. If the manager needs me, I will look to be efficient.”Have I been helping Tammy? Yes. He is still a young player and is having a good moment. I am happy for him. He reminds me of myself when I was starting out in my career. He is precocious. He is doing very well at a young age. I am delighted for him. If I can help him to carry on, I will.”But I will try to push him, again and again, not to be in the comfort zone. I will always try to score a lot. There is a good competition between us.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say
Jared Sullinger is undoubtedly the star of the Buckeyes. The freshman forward is a sure-fire top-five pick in the NBA draft, draws the ire — and spit — of opposing fans and, most notably, runs the Columbus karaoke scene with his renditions of Miley Cyrus songs. He accounts for almost a quarter of OSU’s offense, an offense that runs mostly through him, despite freshman forward Deshaun Thomas’ best efforts. Yet, if the Buckeyes want to win a National Championship, it will hinge on the efforts of soft-spoken junior guard William Buford. His importance to the team was even more apparent in OSU’s two losses. Buford ignited his squad in the first and early second half of the game at Wisconsin. However, he disappeared at the end. OSU coach Thad Matta even said Buford, at the end of the game, lacked the same kind of aggressiveness he showed earlier. Against Purdue, he picked up two early fouls that knocked him out of rhythm. Still, in a game like that, he can’t take just five shots. When all else fails, like it did against Purdue for long stretches, the team needs Buford because he is the only one who can create his own shot off the dribble. College basketball — and really basketball, in general — is dominated by guard play. Of the past 20 players to win the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award, only five of them were primarily post players. Naturally, some of that is because of the overall lack of size in college basketball, as most tall and talented players go to the NBA after one year. That’s what makes a team like Ohio State, with a dominant post player, so tough to guard. Sullinger can only go as far as the rest of his team takes him. That’s where Buford comes in. Sure, fifth-year senior forward David Lighty has the ability to take over, but his jump shot isn’t consistent enough. Senior guard Jon Diebler is only a spot-up shooter, and freshman point guard Aaron Craft serves more as a facilitator, with most of his points coming in transition. We have seen Buford dominate in stretches of games this season, more thoroughly than ever before. His ball-handling skills have improved light-years beyond where they were even a year ago. At times, though, when he’s not the primary ball handler, and with Craft on the floor, he seems to be more passive. When Matta last had a dominant post player, Greg Oden, he took his team to the Final Four. That 2006–07 team’s run was aided by dominant guard play. Guard Ron Lewis hit the game-saving shot against Xavier, and also had big games against Tennessee and Memphis. Point guard Mike Conley Jr. and guard Jamar Butler were also key contributors. Sullinger is more naturally gifted on offense than Oden, and does a better job of staying out of foul trouble. Yet, for as tough as he is on the blocks, he can’t do it alone through a rigorous March and, possibly, April. If the Buckeyes want their “one shining moment,” as national champions, No. 44 fulfills an equally important role in getting them there.
Junior center Amir Williams dunks the ball. OSU beat Nebraska, 71-67, in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament at Bankers Life Fieldhouse March 14. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editor INDIANAPOLIS — Ohio State was finished.After leading by as much as eight points in the first half, Nebraska used a huge run late in the first half and into the second to surge out to a 48-30 lead with 13:45 left.But sparked by sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle and the scoring prowess of junior forward LaQuinton Ross, the Buckeyes fought their way all the way to steal a 71-67 win Friday and advance to the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament.“I’ll tell you what, I’m very proud of these guys and the effort that they put forth,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after the win. “We fought, we clawed, and found a way to win the basketball game.”A dunk by junior forward Sam Thompson made the score 58-56 with 4:42 left, as OSU’s pressure defense caused problems for the Cornhuskers.Ross made two free throws to tie the game at 63 with 1:52 remaining, and on its next possession OSU took the lead for the first time since there was one minute remaining in the first half after he made two more.The Buckeyes were able to make enough free throws down the stretch — they shot just 17-28 from the line during the game — to secure the victory.Matta said the come from behind win ranks with the Notre Dame game Dec. 21, where OSU came back from eight points down in the final minute to win, 64-61.“What were we down, 18 with 10 (minutes) to go today?” Matta said. “This one was probably — the stakes were high on this one … This one was definitely up there. No question about it.”Della Valle finished with 12 points off the bench for OSU to go along with six rebounds. He also hit a big 3-pointer that cut Nebraska’s lead to two with 2:51 to play.“Definitely one of the toughest games for me,” Della Valle said after the game. “But I’m glad we came out with the win.”Different from their first round victory against Purdue, the Buckeyes came out of the gate quickly against the Cornhuskers and led 11-3 after Ross buried a jumper with 14:57 left.After a dunk by junior center Amir Williams to give OSU (25-8, 12-8) a 20-12 lead, the Cornhuskers would finish the first half on a 19-8 run over the last 8:50 to take a 31-28 advantage into the locker room.The Buckeyes’ woes offensively toward the end of the opening half could have been a result of Nebraska (19-12, 11-8) switching to zone defense, as OSU found it difficult to get good shots inside.Early turnovers also prevented OSU from extending the lead when it had the chance, as the Buckeyes committed nine in the game’s first 20 minutes. Nebraska also made 5-13 shots from beyond the three-point arc, compared to just 1-8 shooting by OSU.Things didn’t get any better for the Buckeyes early in the second half, as Nebraska continued it’s scoring run to take a 36-28 lead and forcing Matta to call a timeout with 17:50 left.Ross would hit a tough shot in the lane to stop the bleeding momentarily, but the Buckeyes struggled further to score after as Nebraska’s lead swelled to 48-30 after sophomore forward Terran Petteway made two free throws at the 13:45 mark. Ross also picked up another technical foul — his third in seven games — during the run.But OSU would storm back with help from a stifling full court press and were able to come out on top.Thompson — who finished the game with seven points — said that although recent games against the Cornhuskers have been close, he wouldn’t call it a rivalry with them for one simple reason.“They haven’t beaten us enough for it to be a rivalry,” Thompson said.Senior guard Aaron Craft said after the victory he wasn’t sure what the difference was against Nebraska, since OSU has struggled in late game situations this season to secure victories. But in all, keeping their mind right was key.“We did a good job of never giving up, a phenomenal job of staying focused,” Craft said. “We kept looking up and seeing how much time was left on the clock.”Ross finished with a career-high 26 points and 13 rebounds. Petteway led the Cornhuskers with 20 points.“We stayed together through the whole thing. There was never any panic during the whole situation,” Ross said after the win. “If you watch some of our games earlier in the year, we was down less points than that, I think we were down 18 here. A couple games, like Minnesota, we (were) probably down five and we panicked but that game right there we (were) able to not panic and got through it.”Up next, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on rival and top-seeded Michigan Saturday with a chance to play for their sixth straight tournament championship on the line.Tipoff is set for 1:40 p.m. from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
