That’s on us and we’ll make sure we take care of that.”Graduate guard Hannah Noe led the Aces in scoring for the fourth time this season, recording 17 points, while junior center Kelsi Scott and senior guard Brooke Dossett both chipped-in double-digit scoring performances with 16 and 15 points, respectively. Morehead State was led by Darianne Seward who scored 31 points and Miranda Crockett who added 25.Box Score (PDF)Evansville opened the game on a tear, as the Aces shot 63.6% from the field in the first quarter including going a perfect 8-8 from the charity stripe. In the closing seconds of the quarter, Scott posted up and backed down her defender and scored off the glass to push the Aces’ lead to its largest point in the opening frame at 24-12.In the second quarter, the Aces utilized the momentum they had built in the first ten minutes. Evansville kept its foot on the accelerator, increasing its advantage all the way to 20 at 35-15 on a jumper by sophomore guard Macie Lively with 7:17 left in the quarter. Following the Aces pushing their lead to its largest point of the game, the Eagles responded with a 19-3 run to close the period, trimming the Aces’ lead to just 38-34 at the half.On two occasions in the third quarter, Evansville pushed its lead back to 11, but Morehead State once again provided resistance. With the Aces up 55-44 with 5:31 on the clock in the third, the Eagles manufactured another run, this time a 14-4 spree that cut Evansville’s advantage to 59-58 heading into the fourth quarter.The previous 30 minutes of action featured just one tie, but the final 10 minutes included five ties as each side struggled to take control of the contest. The turning point occurred with under 30 seconds to play when the Eagles went to the line and knocked-down seven of eight attempts at the free throw line to give Morehead State an 82-75 win.Evansville shot a season-best 56.5% (26-46), while holding Morehead State to just 39.7% (27-68) shooting from the field, but the Eagles forced 29 turnovers by the Aces while committing just 17 of their own.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Fresh angle on Parents Weekend

first_img Freshmen arrive on campus, start settling in to college, and new lives Until this past Friday, I reveled in the independence of sophomore year at Harvard. After a poignant family farewell on move-in day, I’d operated under the assumption that I was immune to the common first-year pitfall of homesickness.Then came Freshman Parents Weekend — the special Friday in October when parents of Harvard’s freshman class descend on campus, wearing the requisite crimson and beaming smiles. As I crossed the Yard, it felt as though every member of the Class of 2019 had four parents each, leaving nary a pathway on which to get back to my room. First, you move in Related Returning to my House, I reflected on how my life had changed in the 12 months since my own Freshman Parents Weekend. While this year I did not have to clean my room — or clear my schedule — I was saddened that I was not going to hear my father’s unending complaints about his Fantasy Football team or see my mom organize my room.The silence was deafening as I watched from my window, looking down into the distance as proud parents accompanied by their Harvard progeny. This year, I went to Freshman Parents Weekend as a correspondent rather than a student. Little did I know that viewing these events through objective eyes would help me better understand how each person fits together as pieces of an exquisite puzzle, creating a remarkable picture of community — Harvard’s Class of 2019.“He’s gotten to appreciate us more. And we’ve gotten to appreciate him,” said Hector Nava (right) of his son Nick, a member of Harvard’s Class of 2019. Rounding out the family portrait was Nick’s mother Grita Nava. Photo by Matthew DeShawObserving freshmen and their families at Friday’s event, “Words of Wisdom for Harvard Parents,” showed me power of the Harvard experience on students and parents alike. The Gray family stood out from the crowd. They were attending Freshman Parents Weekend as well as the Crimson football game, in which their son, Tyler, would be taking the field for Harvard. His mother, Toyya Brawley Gray, shared how being a student athlete at Harvard has influenced her son in a few short months, noting his growth not only as a football player but as a student and role model.“He has become an even better time manager. He is adjusting to being here and having a bigger workload,” she said, noting that the transformation was not limited to Cambridge but was felt at home in South Carolina. “We miss him a lot. We’re used to having him here for his younger brothers.”Cooper Bryan (far right) of Ethiopia was accompanied by his grandparents, Connie and Pat Bryan, from Oklahoma. Photo by Matthew DeShawTalking with the students and families also opened a window into the daily life of a Harvard freshman, which brought back memories of my own first year. Nick Nava’s family from Miami were enamored with the beauty of the fall foliage, with one family member noting: “I like seeing the leaves change, because I’m used to seeing green where I’m from!”While New Englanders take autumn splendor for granted, the Navas included a new climate as part of their Harvard experience. Nick shared one of his late-night culinary preferences: Filipe’s. A 2 a.m. burrito at Felipe’s is a Harvard rite of passage, and already an integral part of this freshman’s experience.When asked how Harvard has impacted the family, Nick’s father, Hector, said, “He’s gotten to appreciate us more. And we’ve gotten to appreciate him.”Another theme that emerged was culture shock. Perhaps one of the most interesting examples was that of freshman Cooper Bryan from Ethiopia. Accompanied by his grandparents, Connie and Pat from Oklahoma, Cooper discussed his transition. “The adjustment has been good. I am loving everything except the weather. The people here are the best thing about it.”Even with the extreme cultural adaption, Connie Bryan reflected, “He seems to be the same old Cooper that we know.”Indeed, Parents Weekend is a time for students to take time to re-bond with their families and share a slice of their College life. The weekend reinforced my respect for how Harvard affects people. Almost universally, the families noted how their children have matured since arriving at Harvard in late August, and looked forward to seeing this growth continue. As an objective attendee, I could clearly see the diversity in this freshman class. The exquisite variety in talent, personal viewpoint, academic passion, and extracurricular interest fit together perfectly to create the dynamic group of freshmen interviewed.I concluded the weekend with a greater respect for the members of my campus community as well as for the transformative power of Harvard, and grateful for the privilege of witnessing it firsthand.Matthew DeShaw ’18 writes an occasional column about Harvard College experiences.last_img read more


first_img“We have someone from the financial aid office who gives a presentation,” Coursey said. “A lot of parents and students have questions about that, so it’s really helpful for prospective students to get some insight into making their college decisions.”High school students and college students looking to transfer to UGA are the event’s focus. Coursey said there will be breakout sessions for both. Faculty and staff from all departments of CAES will have information booths set up to provide students with information specific to each department. Current students will also be in attendance to provide their perspective to prospective students and parents. The event is free, but there will be a meal served, so participants are asked to preregister at For more information, contact Coursey at (229) 386-3077 or at [email protected](Kyle Dawson is an intern at the UGA Tifton Campus.) Recruitment for the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences is the focus of the Southeast (SE) showCAES event on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at the Bulloch Center for Agriculture in Statesboro, Georgia. The event will kick off at 5:30 p.m.Breanna Coursey, admissions counselor at the UGA Tifton Campus, endorses showCAES as a great way for prospective students and parents to learn about admission to UGA, and more specifically, the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.“The goal of this event is to allow students to learn more about the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the University of Georgia. CAES has 22 different undergraduate majors,” Coursey said. “We will also have a presentation from UGA admissions, so if students are interested in UGA as a whole and in learning more about the admission process, then they can come and ask questions.”Coursey said that SE showCAES allows students closer to Tifton, Georgia, the chance to explore UGA Tifton as an option. “If students who live in the eastern part of the state are interested in UGA Tifton, this event is beneficial for them because they do not have to drive very far,” Coursey said. “Also, students in the southeast part of the state may have never heard of UGA Tifton, and this event will allow them to see what we have to offer as well.”Coursey said many students don’t know that they can attend UGA Tifton and receive the same degree a student might receive on the UGA Athens Campus. Many more students don’t know all that UGA Tifton has to offer. Events like SE showCAES can shed light on educational opportunities.“It’s kind of like a career fair because a lot of students don’t realize the opportunities that are available at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences,” Coursey said. “SE showCAES is designed for students to explore opportunities and learn more about the University of Georgia. Many students have a narrow perception of agriculture and believe that, unless they are interested in farming, agriculture is not a viable option. Agriculture is the largest industry in the state and our college encompasses everything from business to medicine. If a student is interested in job security, CAES would be a great fit.” Parents of students are also encouraged to come. There will be parts of the event geared specifically toward parents, including discussion on financial aid.last_img read more

Trail Mix: Maya De Vitry – Song Premiere

first_imgAcoustic trio The Stray Birds have long been a favorite of mine.I first heard of the band on my one visit to IBMA, in 2013, and the band turned up on Trail Mix that same year for the first time. It was with sadness that I heard of the band’s dissolution some months ago, as their harmonies, songwriting, and instrumental prowess always impressed me.My sadness didn’t last long, however, as I discovered that Maya De Vitry – guitarist and singer of The Stray Birds – was dropping her debut solo record this month.De Vitry holed up in her grandparents’ Pennsylvania cabin and began writing the songs that would eventually become part of her new record, Adaptations, in 2016. There isn’t a more appropriate title for such a release, as – for any musician – shedding a band and embarking on a solo journey is an adaptation of the highest order.Adaptations is a collection of remarkable tunes, recorded with a stellar ensemble of musicians, draw on love, freedom, and introspection and prove remarkably that De Vitry will be just fine on her new solo adventure.This week, the Trail Mix is excited to bring you the world premiere of “Anyone At All,” which I was lucky enough to chat with De Vitry about recently, along with her plans for 2019 and the joy of songwriting in the solitude of her grandparents’ cabin.BRO – The title of the new record is telling. How are you adapting now as you venture out as a solo artist?MDV – Lots of adapting going on internally. I’m learning to protect my own energy as a resource – taking care of my body and mind, and I’m staying off the road for the time being, which has meant working part-time as a barista. And I’m learning to face self-doubt head-on in many ways.BRO – Best part about writing at your grandparents’ cabin?MDV – I really hadn’t been alone very much in my life. It was disorienting and jarring at first. It took me about a day to feel comfortable making whatever noise I wanted, as if someone could still hear me, and then I just ended up talking to myself, or even shouting, and eventually singing whatever I felt like singing. The best part was the overwhelming feeling that I was encountering something new, as if I could actually sense the wind that was lifting and turning a page for me, creatively.BRO – How did you go about surrounding yourself with such great musicians for these recording sessions?MDV – Dan Knobler, who produced and engineered the record, and Anthony da Costa, who played guitar and sang harmonies, were true advocates for my music from the very beginning. Dan really guided the process of who to involve in the studio. I really trust Dan’s instincts. Dan got his friend Jason Burger on board to play drums. I met Jason for the first time when I walked into the studio for our first day of tracking, and I instantly felt at peace in his presence. I’d known Sam Grisman for many years through the acoustic music scene, and Dan was really confident that Sam would have a great approach and feel on the bass for these songs. Dan also called on his friend Russell Durham to arrange strings and woodwinds on a few songs, which led to another layer of musicians beyond the live studio band. Some of the other musicians on the record were already dear friends, like Lindsay Lou and Courtney Hartman, but plenty were strangers at the time.BRO – We are premiering “Anyone At All” on this week’s blog post. What’s the story behind the song?MDV – Especially during life transitions – between places, jobs, relationships – it can feel like we are on display, and I wanted to affirm the freedom to have nothing to show for yourself. For me, it took actually stepping physically out of sight, physically stepping away from people’s well-intentioned interrogations, to begin seeing myself in a loving way.BRO – What has you most excited about 2019?MDV – I’m excited to just keep being alive and growing as an artist, and striving to feel free and rooted at the same time. And I’m always excited to spend time outdoors, too. I love hiking, camping, climbing, and swimming, and, as I sing in “Anyone At All,” just sitting out in the sun and having a coffee in the yard.This month, Trail Mix is lucky to feature two songs by Maya De Vitry. Check out the poignant “Go Tell A Bird,” which is available all month long on the January mix. And, right here, tune your ears into “Anyone At All,” for the very first time!ANYONE AT ALLYou can catch Maya De Vitry live in Nashville, including the release party for the new record at The 5 Spot, a few times between now and early February.After that, you’ll need to be in Montreal for the Folk Alliance International festival to hear songs from Adaptations.For more information on Maya De Vitry, how you can get the new record, or when can see her live, be sure to check out her website.And, before you go about the rest of your day, take a listen to Maya’s “Go Tell A Bird,” along with other great tracks from artists like The Delines, The Burney Sisters, and John McCutcheon on this month’s Trail Mix.last_img read more

NextGen Know-How: Creating a feedback-rich environment

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr One of the top reasons employees leave organizations is that they are not getting the feedback they need to learn and develop in their jobs. Most managers neglect to give meaningful feedback, whether it’s because they don’t make the time, are uncomfortable delivering it or don’t see the importance.But providing timely feedback is not only an important responsibility as a leader—it’s also crucial in creating an environment of honesty, trust and collaboration. Without honest feedback, it’s challenging to bring out the best performance in employees and deepen relationships.Unfortunately, most managers give vague feedback that is not helpful. Saying, “You’re doing a great job!” may sound nice, but it doesn’t give the employee any specific and meaningful information. continue reading »last_img read more

Gas Supplier Selected for New LNG Facility at Gothenburg Port

first_imgSwedegas, which is currently constructing a permanent LNG facility at the Port of Gothenburg, has entered into an agreement with gas supplier Barents NaturGass for the facility.This means that in just a few months, vessels will be able for the first time to bunker LNG at the permanent facility at the port.“Gothenburg based shipping companies have been amongst the first to adopt LNG in Sweden. Several vessels have already been built and launched which are ready to run on LNG. We are keen to start our LNG supply services and meet the customer’s needs,” Gudrun Rollefsen, CEO of Barents NaturGass, commented.LNG supplier Skangas is already operating at the Port of Gothenburg, supplying ships with LNG using a ship-to-ship-system.“We can see that the demand for LNG will increase at the Port of Gothenburg, and it is vital that the number of alternatives continues to grow. With the Swedegas facility, the port will have more LNG choices than previously on a competitive market with several gas suppliers, whilst at the same time there will be a larger range of bunkering methods,” Jill Söderwall, Head of Commercial Operations at the Energy Port, commented.With the opening of the Swedegas facility in August, LNG customers at the Port of Gothenburg will have three bunkering alternatives: ship-to-ship, directly from a road truck, and pipe-to-jetty. All three methods can be employed whilst the vessels are loading or unloading, according to the port.The facility is being built at the quayside at the Energy Port at the Port of Gothenburg, where vessels can bunker LNG while loading or unloading. The LNG will be brought to the facility using trailers or containers, which will unload at a discharge station. The LNG will then be distributed via a vacuum-insulated cryogenic pipeline to the quays in the Skarvik area at the Energy Port.In autumn 2016, the first LNG bunkering took place at the port, and since then the number of LNG-powered ships has gradually increased. In 2017, 111 LNG ships called the Port of Gothenburg. From January through April of 2018, LNG was bunkered 44 times.last_img read more
