Ohio State mens track ready for competitive Indiana Relays

Always be moving forward.That’s the motto the Ohio State men’s track team has going into this weekend’s Indiana Relays in Bloomington, Ind.“It should be a competitive meet,” head coach Ed Beathea said on the teams the Buckeyes are set to run against.Teams like Alabama, Xavier, Notre Dame, Northern Illinois and Indiana are among those set to compete in the meet this weekend.Junior sprinter and hurdler Timothy Faust said he expects the opponents to push the team to greater success and even help him run his best race yet in the 200-meter dash.“This is a chance for us to compete against some good guys from the conference,” Faust said.He added that the team goal for the meet is to continue doing the things they have been doing right and to work hard.Redshirt-freshman sprinter and hurdler Donovan Robertson is expecting the same work ethic the Buckeyes have shown all season from at the meet.“Every week, we are getting better and better,” Robertson said. “Last week was a solid week, I hope we can continue.”Robertson added that getting the chance to compete against conference teams is good for the Buckeyes.“I couldn’t really tell you which (team) is bigger than the other but the fact that they are Big Ten conference teams I think they are all really important,” Robertson said.At the meet, Robertson is slated to only run the 200-meter dash instead of his usual sprints and hurdles. Robertson said this is his first time running the 200-meter dash since high school, but he is excited to run it.Beathea said the coaches start to put runners in single events to get them more competition-minded as they move into February and get closer to the indoor Big Ten Championships.Aside from individuals competing at a high level this weekend, Beathea said he is looking forward to seeing the relay teams show what they can do.“We anticipate running our A (4×4) team this weekend,” Beathea said. “Right now (it’s) a top 10 relay team in the country, we hope (it) will be competitive.”As the indoor season continues on into another weekend of races, Beathea said it is exciting because team members are becoming more tightly knit.“It’s nice to go to the meet and see the guys engaging in what other guys are doing. Guys supporting each other, that’s what it is supposed to look like — less like an individual sport and more like a team sport,” Beathea said.That camaraderie of the team is something he anticipates will help make them successful this weekend.“We want to go out and compete. We want for other teams to know that we were at the meet,” Beathea said. “We want to have a presence at the competition.”The meet is scheduled to start Friday and continue through Saturday. read more

Florenzi believes Roma were tactically a step above

first_imgAS Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi has hailed Eusebio Di Francesco’s tactical changes in their shock 3-0 win over Barcelona and insists that they were “tactically a step above” their opponentsAfter a 4-1 defeat at the Nou Camp during their first leg clash, Roma were heavily expected to be eliminated on Tuesday night against a Barcelona side that have gone an incredible 38 games unbeaten in La Liga.Yet, the Giallorossi left the Catalan giants stunned at the Stadio Olimpico with a new 3-4-1-2 formation proving to be a deadly move on Barcelona with Edin Dzeko, Daniele de Rossi and Kostas Manolas goals securing a 3-0 win for the hosts.“To be honest, we never really felt it was at risk tonight, as Barcelona did nothing to cause us problems. We put in the perfect performance,” Florenzi told Mediaset Premium (via Football-Italia).“Tactically, we were a step above them. If Barcelona don’t get to play the ball to feet and pass it around comfortably, they really struggle.”David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.The defender remained evasive in regards to the new formation being used in future matches.“The Coach will decide, but what we saw tonight should increase this man’s credibility. We players never doubted him, but some in the media and the stands…” said the 27 year-old.“At half-time, he told us to stay calm, as we knew that we could achieve this miracle. We brought home an historic result. Roma hadn’t been in a semi-final for 34 years.“I really like having three defenders, as it gives me more security to go forward and put crosses in, but it’s up to the Coach to decide.“It was wonderful to see the Olimpico packed. I expect to see this many fans in the Derby against Lazio too.”last_img read more

Paramedics arrived and she was later declared dead at a hospital.Garcia Zarate had acknowledged shooting Steinle in the back. He has said he was handling the handgun when it accidentally fired.Garcia Zarate had been deported five times and was homeless in San Francisco when he shot Steinle. He had recently completed a prison sentence for illegal re-entry to the U.S. when he was transferred to the San Francisco County jail to face a 20-year-old marijuana charge.The shooting touched off a political furor during last year’s presidential race, with President Donald Trump citing the killing of 32-year-old Steinle as a reason to toughen U.S. immigration policies.last_img read more

Washing hands in cold water as good as hot

first_imgWashing your hands in hot water may be pointless as scientists have found that cold water is equally effective at killing germs. Researchers also found that washing even for 10 seconds significantly removed bacteria from the hands.”People need to feel comfortable when they are washing their hands but as far as effectiveness, this study shows us that the temperature of the water used did not matter,” said Donald Schaffner, professor at Rutgers University in the US. In the study, high levels of a harmless bacteria were put on the hands of 21 participants multiple times over a six-month period before they were asked to wash their hands in 60-degree, 79-degree or 100-degree water temperatures using 0.5 millilitre (ml), 1 ml or 2 ml volumes of soap. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”This study may have significant implications towards water energy, since using cold water saves more energy than warm or hot water,” said Schaffner. While the study indicates that there is no difference between the amount of soap used, more work needs to be done to understand exactly how much and what type of soap is needed to removeharmful microbes from hands, researchers said. “This is important because the biggest public health need is to increase hand-washing or hand sanitising by food-service workers and the public before eating, preparing food and after using the restroom,” said Jim Arbogast, co-author of the study published in the Journal of Food Protection. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveA number of infectious diseases can be spread from one person to another by contaminated hands. Washing your hands properly can help prevent the spread of the germs that cause these diseases.These findings are significant, particularly to the restaurant and food industry, because the US Food and Drug Administration issues guidelines every four years, researchers said. Those guidelines currently recommend that plumbing systems at food establishments and restaurants deliver water at over 37 degrees Celsius for hand-washing, they said. Schaffner said the issue of water temperature has been debated for a number of years without enough science to back-up any recommendation to change the policy guidelines or provide proof that water temperature makes a difference in hygiene.last_img read more
