RED BANK – Red Bank Catholic’s softball team had one of its better hitting performances in its 15-3 rout of Jackson Memorial in a first round Shore Conference Tournament game Saturday.RBC scored in four of the five innings in the game, which was halted in the fifth inning by the Mercy Rule after Brianna Hagan cracked a three-run homer over the left field fence to give RBC a 12 run lead.“As long as we keep playing the way we have recently, we’ll be okay,” said RBC coach Tony Flego. “Since this is a tournament game, it will be down and out if we lose.“We still have a lot to prove,” said Flego. “We had the bats in this game but, to remain successful, our pitching has to be good and our defense must be tight, which we did today.”Taylor Lane, Tess Griswold and winning pitcher Gabby Bram had the big hits in the game.Lane, batting lead-off, collected a single, double and scored four runs while Griswold batted in three runs with a double and two singles. Bram won her ninth game of the year and added a two-run double.The big innings for RBC were the fourth and fifth when it combined for 11 runs.Bram and Griswold both had two-run doubles in the fourth inning when the Caseys scored six runs and sent 10 players to the plate.Allison Savino and Griswold both had RBI hits in the fifth inning before Hagan, as a pinch-hitter, homered to bring an end to the game.“It’s nice to win because it is coming down to the last few games,” said Bram, one of only two seniors on the team. “Now we have to keep winning.”“Our team has come to play every day,” said Flego. “We’re very young with Bram and Brynne Baumann the only seniors. We also have two freshman starters. The rest are juniors and sophomores.”RBC will play Pinelands Friday in a conference quarter-final game.

Ex-Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was planning a winter swoop for £50million rated Depay.But Lyon’s director of football, Juninho, insisted Depay is happy at Les Gones and hopes to extend his contract beyond its end in June 2021.However, if the forward declines a contract extension it is likely he will be sold before his existing one runs out so Lyon can recoup some of their investment.Depay only scored seven goals in England, but he claimed his vast improvement in France is down to being “more mature” – and because the Premier League is so tough.He told The Mirror: “My mental state is different. I was 21 back then when I was with United and now I am 25 so obviously I am a more matured human being now, than when I was in Manchester.Memphis Depay wears dodgy jacket and smokes cigar as he dedicates awful rap to fansACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneTransfer news Live Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeGossipFIT IN HIS BELEArsenal turn attention to Lyon striker Dembele as Lacazette replacementGossipGUNNER MAKE A MOVEArsenal weighing up transfer move for Barcelona star Rafinha”Also there is a difference between the French game and the English game and the main difference is the speed of the ball.”In England it goes very fast, attack and defence and attack and defence again.”The French game you feel more the control and trying to find our moments and we are all more relaxed playing the ball to each other.” LIVERPOOL are ready to rival Tottenham in the race for Lyon forward Memphis Depay, according to reports in Italy.The Dutchman swapped the Premier League for Ligue 1 in 2017 after ending his nightmare two-season spell at Manchester United.1 Liverpool and Tottenham are said to be interested in Memphis DepayCredit: Getty – ContributorDepay has since been rejuvenated at Lyon, notching 12 goals and 16 assists last season and beginning this campaign netting 11 times already.The Dutchman’s scoring form has attracted attention from European champions Liverpool and Spurs, Calciomercato report.But United, who flogged the 25-year-old for £17m after just 53 appearances, have a buy-back clause on the versatile forward.Though Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to show interest in Depay.Solskjaer instead has Borussia Dortmund wideman Jadon Sancho, 19, at the top of his transfer list.

Golden State won, 116-110. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)Under the former NBA schedule, the first month of the season would just be coming to a close this week.The earlier start that the league went to last year, with the regular season beginning two weeks sooner, means some teams are now already more than a quarter of the way through their 82-game schedules.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. GAME OF THE WEEKThe Warriors are recovering. The Raptors are rolling.When they meet this week, possibly with Stephen Curry back on the floor, it sets up as one of the games of the NBA season.Golden State heads to Toronto on Thursday for the nationally televised game with the Raptors, who have the NBA’s best record at 17-4. Led by Kawhi Leonard, they have won five in a row overall and are 8-2 at home.The Warriors have won two in a row after a four-game skid that was their longest under coach Steve Kerr. The game in Toronto opens a five-game road trip to the Eastern Conference during which they believe Curry will return from a strained left groin that will sideline him for a 10th straight game Monday against Orlando.Golden State knows how good Leonard is. He had led San Antonio to a huge cushion in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals at Oracle Arena two seasons ago before injuring his ankle in what would turn out to be one of his last appearances for the Spurs. He played in only nine games last season before being dealt to Toronto over the summer.Now the Raptors are looking forward to testing themselves against the champs.“Obviously we’re excited every night to play against anybody,” forward Paskal Siakam said, “but good teams is always a bigger challenge and we’re just more excited.”OTHER GAMES TO WATCH THIS WEEKMinnesota at Cleveland, Monday. Maybe things are settling down after turbulent times for the teams, as each have won two in a row. LATEST STORIES Eleven teams in the Western Conference are .500 or better, and that list doesn’t include the usually automatic San Antonio Spurs. The Clippers, Denver and Memphis are all in the top five spots after missing the playoffs last season.The experimenting figures to continue for the Celtics, who had to readjust to having Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, and the Rockets, who had to replace Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute. Both teams start the final week of November at .500 after falling a game short of the NBA Finals last season.Then there’s the Clippers, perhaps the surprise of the league and percentage points ahead of the Warriors for the best record in the West. The team that once boasted a starting lineup that included Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan now fields a much-more anonymous starting lineup but with excellent results.Can that continue? Like plenty else around the NBA thus far, it appears too early to tell.“I think we can beat anyone,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said, “but I think we can lose to anyone.”ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen moving closer to season debut Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lakers at Denver, Tuesday.

Juventus agreed to terminate the 55-times capped Italian international’s contract by “mutual consent” before Friday’s transfer deadline in Italy.“A thousand thoughts and a thousand images accompanied me throughout the night,” wrote Marchisio in an Instagram post accompanied by a photo that showed him playing for a Juventus youth team as a child.“I can’t stop looking at this photograph and those stripes on which I wrote my life story as a man and a player.“I love this jersey to such a degree that, despite everything, I am convinced that what is best for the team comes first. Always. On a tough day like this, I cling tight to that principle.“You are the most beautiful part of this marvellous story, so for that reason, in a few days we’ll be able to say goodbye in a more special way.“After all, 8 (his jersey number) is nothing but an infinity sign looking upwards.”Marchisio’s only time away from Juventus was a season’s loan to Empoli in 2007-2008, but he had been increasingly sidelined after a serious knee injury in 2016.“Having had the opportunity to accompany him on this path, to discover a homegrown champion, day by day, was quite simply a privilege and an honour. Thanks for everything Claudio,” Juventus said in a statement.Marchisio made his first-team debut for Juventus in August 2006 and scored 37 times in 389 appearances in the black and white jersey.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Juventus’ goalkeeper from Italy Gianluigi Buffon (C) hugs teammate Juventus’ midfielder Claudio Marchisio at the end of the Italian Serie A football match Juventus versus Verona, on May 19, 2018 at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.

1 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp refused to get carried away by the Europa League victory over Manchester United.The Reds were 2-0 winners over their arch-rivals at Anfield – a first-half penalty from Daniel Sturridge was followed by a decisive second from Roberto Firmino 17 minutes from time. It could have been much worse had it not been for the heroics of goalkeeper David de Gea.“It was good, from the first second to last second with only a few minutes in the second half when we lost control,” he said.“2-0 is a perfect result. We would have liked to have won more clearly but there is nothing to criticise tonight.“As a human being I could really celebrate and say it is the best and greatest ever but I don’t want to set a limit for them, I don’t know how strong they can be.“We are in a good position now and want to go to the next round but for this we have to play like this again.”Klopp was impressed with the Anfield atmosphere.“It was unbelievable. I want to say thank you to everyone who was involved it was easy to enjoy from the first to last second,” he added.“That was Liverpool as I knew it before I came here. It was really great.” Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were 2-0 winners over Manchester United

Lee Chung-Yong accused him of running the team with “a short-term vision” 1 Alan Pardew has fined Lee Chung-Yong after he was quoted accusing the Crystal Palace manager of forgetting how many substitutes he had left during games.Lee made the comments to the press in his native South Korea and also claimed Pardew made “absurd” decisions.And Pardew has responded to those comments from the winger by docking his wages, insisting Lee was wrong to accuse him of running the team with “a short-term vision”.“He has made an error,” said the Palace manager.“He said it got lost in translation, and that can happen. I have had it before. But some of it is not lost in translation and he will get a fine for that. You cannot criticise things that did not happen. “I have dealt with it because he is incorrect on a couple of points there, about team selection and stuff like that. It was a mistake on his part and he will be punished for that in terms of a fine.”

Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) will host their next Open Evening from 3-7 pm on Thursday, 10 May 2018. The event at the Letterkenny and Killybegs campuses is an opportunity for prospective students to discover the many courses on offer, to meet lecturers, and learn more about the vibrant community at the leading Institute. Ahead of the LYIT Open Evening on 10 May, LYIT Masters graduate Helen Masterson shared her story with Donegal Daily to describe how her studies equipped her with the leadership skills to oversee a major change in her company.Helen began her Master of Business in Innovation & Leadership at a time of enormous change for her company, Moll Industries Ireland Ltd. Helen is the Managing Director and co-owner of Moll, which is a Donegal Town-based company that specialises in a wide range of Plastic Injection Moulding, Assembly and Product Development. Helen Masterson – Managing Director and co-owner of Moll Industries LtdHelen attributes her Masters education to the skills in strategic thinking and a new approach to Change Management she gained for a management buyout at Moll. She said: “As I had just accepted a place on the course, an opportunity arose from Corporate for a management buyout. Over the two years of the course I proceeded with the pursuit of the buy out and successfully completed the process with my husband in June 2010. The Managing Change module had the most impact as it gave me the tools to approach this enormous change that was to take place; it allowed me to understand, manage and cope effectively with the change and, in turn, bring all employees along with us.”Helen is originally from Belmullet in Co Mayo, and currently lives in Donegal Town with her husband and three children. The structure of the degree course, she said, suited her work and life balance, and proved to be very relevant to her exact needs at the time. Modules in the Master of Business in Innovation & Leadership are all designed to develop the leadership talents of managers to deliver significant business impact in the professional workplace. The flexible structure allows students to continue working in their business while learning key management skills. “The structure of the course modules allows you to work full-time while upskilling. The course content, and the way it’s delivered, the calibre of the lecturers and speakers – all were excellent,” Helen said. Helen believes that executive education is a necessity for business leaders: “Leaders and managers especially need to allow themselves the opportunity to upskill, expand and grow; to provide themselves the opportunity to learn a strategic thinking approach. It’s an excellent networking tool and if you go into it with an open mind you will obtain new and updated knowledge not just from the course but from your peers also.”Moll Industries Ltd has had significant expansion and change since the 1980s. Helen, who also has an Engineering degree, has worked in various management positions and has represented the Overall Corporate management team in the US. Studying at LYIT, Helen said, ensured she was well prepared for the evolution of the plant. “It was a positive contributing factor to the overall success of the initial purchase and the operational excellence we experience today.”Why choose LYIT? Helen said: “LYIT is a fine college with forward thinking leadership and focuses on providing relevant skills for business and industry as a whole.” The purpose of the LYIT Open Evening on Thursday 10 May, is to have one-to-one conversations with people around the educational possibilities available to them. There are always options, which include accessing Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) to gain advanced entry, credits or exemptions on to a programme at LYIT.

BURBANK – Under the shade of a coastal live oak in the city’s hillsides, a group of fifth-graders from Farmdale Elementary School took binoculars Tuesday and tried to spy mockingbirds, spotted towhees, sparrows and thrashers flitting above the chaparral. For some of the 25 mostly Latino children gathered behind the Stough Canyon Nature Center, it was a rare opportunity to commune with the outdoors and learn a few things about biology and science away from their urban environment of northeast Los Angeles. But Brian Rodriguez, 10, was concerned the black stink bug crawling on his hand was going to pee. “It’s tickling,” he cried out. “I think it’s searching for food. It feels tingly. It feels like it bit me.” Elyssa Roberts, 10, just enjoyed being outside and running her fingers through a creek. “It’s very fun because we get to learn about a lot of stuff we didn’t know before,” she said, “like about nature and how everything works.” Including what happens when you rub against that infamous three-leaved plant, as Johnnie Guadamuz, 11, learned from the naturalist on hand. “Don’t go near poison (oak),” Johnnie said. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 546-3306160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Joining the nature walk was state Sen. Richard Alarcon, D-Van Nuys, who authored SB 1649, the Outdoor Classroom Act, which would make available $1.2 million to provide grants to school districts statewide to expand existing outdoor learning opportunities. Under the bill, districts could team up with state parks operators to set up facilities on the beaches, in the mountains or in the deserts of California. The Senate Appropriations Committee is expected to vote on the bill next week. If signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, officials hope to begin the program as early as July 1. “These kids can have a better appreciation for nature if they can understand the outdoors, particularly if they understand that their communities used to be like this,” Alarcon said. “If we teach these kids to appreciate nature, they will do a better job of planning in the future. They will do a better job of taking care of their own home environment.”
