EB17: Zipp SL70 carbon road bike handlebars get more ergonomic

first_imgErgonomic top is flatter now and gets a 3º backsweep. It has a 70mm reach, 128mm drop10º ramp angle, and 4º outsweep (it measures about 1cm wider at the drops, but claimed measurement is at the hoods, center to center)They’re now being made in SRAM’s higher end factory that’s making their ultra-stiff SL Sprint stems and Exogram crank designs. Price is $275 / €302 / £259, available November 2017. Claimed weight is 205g (42cm), 40 and 44 also available.Zipp.com “The products don’t make you faster,” says Zipp product manager Nate Schickel. “Setting the fit makes you faster.”Being properly fit makes you comfortable, which lets you stay in a fast position, so you waste less energy moving around. That’s the premise behind the new Zipp SL70 Ergo carbon handlebar, which updates the angles and curves across the entire bar, from tops to drops.The SL70 falls into their 70mm short/low sizing, made for the rider who reaches into the drops, not down to it. The others, for 80 and 88, are for riders who prefer a higher or more traditional position, respectively.The drops are redesigned to have a variable radius drop, giving them a bit more of a flat section at the 3-6 o’clock position, and the reach is shorter to make it easier to get your hands onto that spot. Yet it’s designed to still transition smoothly onto the brake hoods.last_img read more

Gophers rout Wisconsin in a sweep

first_img“Our team did a real good job of keeping them to the perimeter, making my job easier,” goaltender Mat Robson told reporters. “I feel like they made me look really good all weekend.”Robson got his fifth consecutive start in net for the Gophers Saturday. He faced 24 shots and allowed one goal, while Friday he faced 40 shots and allowed two goals.The game was riddled with penalties — seven power plays for each team. Minnesota has had difficulty converting on the power play this season, with only 17 goals with the extra man coming into the game, but this matchup was different.Ramsey scored on the power play, a unit he is not usually on. Lucia credited that to his effort on the penalty kill that stopped all seven of Wisconsin’s power play chances.“We had some good looks tonight,” Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. “It was nice to see [Jack] Ramsey get rewarded for all the dirty work that those guys do during the game with the penalty kill.”Minnesota earned another three points Saturday, which brought them to 29. The team also went ahead of Wisconsin for home-ice advantage.Notre Dame, Ohio State and Michigan are all ahead of the Gophers in the conference standings. The Wolverines have 32 points, close enough for Minnesota to get even in points with one victory.“The guys were ready at warmups,” Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. “We talked about the importance of this weekend, the importance of this game tonight, a chance to leave here ahead of Wisconsin.” Gophers rout Wisconsin in a sweepMinnesota’s offense scored seven goals Saturday night.Ellen Schmidt, Daily File PhotoTyler Sheehy, left, and Rem Pitlick, right, watch a play unfold at 3M Arena at Mariucci on Feb. 4, 2017. Drew CoveFebruary 11, 2018Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintPaul Bunyan’s Axe might have gone back to the Badgers after they shutout the Gophers in football, but the men’s hockey team managed to score seven against Wisconsin on the ice.No. 12 Minnesota (18-13-1, 9-10-1 Big Ten) dominated No. 17 Wisconsin (14-15-3, 8-11-2-1 Big Ten) in a 7-1 offensive explosion-victory Saturday for the coveted fourth spot in the Big Ten standings.“We talked about the playoffs had begun for us,” head coach Don Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. “We’ll have a chance at home-ice and this was a critical two-game segment for us.”The offense for Minnesota has struggled to produce much of the season, but Saturday, it came alive to score seven goals on the Badgers, a season-high goal total for the team.Forward Rem Pitlick — goalless in the past 12 games — scored two goals, including one where he batted a puck out of mid-air. On top of Pitlick’s offensive resurgence, another name that has been quiet on the scoresheet this season came back and scored a goal for the first time in months.Forward Leon Bristedt scored 20 goals two seasons ago for the Gophers, but had only three coming into Saturday’s game. He scored his fourth goal of the season in the victory, which marked the first time he scored an empty-net goal since a game in late December against Army. The last goal he scored that wasn’t an empty-netter was on Nov. 4 against Michigan State.It didn’t take long for the Gophers to get back into their offensive stride. Just 1:07 into the game, Bristedt’s goal opened the scoring. Minnesota wasn’t done there, though. The Gophers scored two more in the first period alone, including the eventual game-winner from Brent Gates Jr.Another forward who is enjoying a resurgence on the scoreboard is captain Tyler Sheehy. He added a goal Saturday, and he ended the weekend series with three goals in two games.Besides the scoring prowess returning to Minnesota’s lineup, the defense kept the gates closed for Wisconsin’s offense. The Gophers scored 11 goals in the two games, while the Badgers scored just three.last_img read more

Highlands University School Of Education Offering $525,970 In Teacher Education Scholarship Funds

first_imgNMHU News:LAS VEGAS, NM – The New Mexico Highlands University School of Education is offering $525,970 in teacher education scholarships, thanks to awards from two New Mexico Higher Education Department programs.In its 2019 session, the New Mexico State Legislature approved $10 million for the Teacher Preparation Affordability Scholarship Act, with Highlands receiving $479,853.Also in 2019, the legislature approved $510,000 for the new Grow Your Own Teacher Act, with Highlands receiving $46,117.“With both these scholarship programs we want to recruit, prepare and support the next generations of teachers,” said Carmen Lopez-Wilson, deputy secretary for the New Mexico Higher Education Department. “These scholarships will help address the widespread teacher shortage in New Mexico.”The Highlands School of Education will post applications for the teacher education scholarships online in the middle of July at www.nmhu.edu/education. The scholarship programs begin in the fall semester 2019 and continue as long as legislative funding is available.Both programs offer scholarships of up to $3,000 per semester for eligible applicants to help pay for college tuition, fees and books. To be eligible for the Teacher Preparation Affordability scholarship, applicants must be New Mexico residents, be accepted to the Highlands School of Education or another state or tribal institution, and must complete FAFSA, the free application for federal student aid. The requirements for the Grow Your Own Teacher scholarship are the same with the addition of United States citizenship.The Grow Your Own Teacher program targets education assistants who are already working in New Mexico classrooms, giving them paid time off work to complete teacher degree requirements.“The Teacher Preparation Affordability Scholarship program prioritizes awards to English language learners, minority students, and those who want to teach in high-need teaching positions,” Lopez-Wilson said.Lopez-Wilson said she appreciates how the Highlands University regents, administration and School of Education are proactively using the scholarship opportunities to improve access and affordability to aspiring teachers.Rodolfo Chávez with Highlands University’s Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations, said the teacher scholarship programs will help stimulate people moving up the career ladder in education, and also help the New Mexico economy grow due to their increased earnings.“The Grow Your Own Teacher Act parallels a similar federal grant program called the 2+2 Career Ladder Teacher Licensure Program that Highlands has been implementing successfully for the last three years through the Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations,” said Chavez, who directs this National Professional Development federal grant.“At Highlands, we’re really going to reach out to the historically underserved communities such as Native Americans and Hispanics to encourage them to become our future teachers in the state,” said Sheree Jederberg, interim dean of the Highlands School of Education. “These future teachers will help better reflect the student population in the state.”Jederberg said it’s exciting for the Highlands School of Education to have the opportunity to work with these future teachers.“This teacher scholarship program allows students to come into our traditional teacher preparation program or our new alternative licensure program, a fast track to earning a teaching license for those with bachelor’s degrees or higher,” Jederberg said.Jederberg said a School of Education committee will review the applications and work with the Highlands Financial Aid Office to award the scholarships.last_img read more

DACA Saved, But Is It Here To Stay?

first_img Share The United States Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Trump administration had acted improperly when the Department of Homeland Security tried to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. However, while many East End DACA residents celebrated the decision, the ruling makes clear that the DACA program can still be ended by the Trump administration if it follows proper procedures in doing so.Minerva Perez, the executive director of Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island, cautioned on Friday, “DACA is not safe.”DACA was set up by executive order during the Obama administration, in recognition of the fact that many undocumented workers across the nation had brought their children with them when they had entered the country. By 2012, many of those children had grown up in this country and saw themselves as American. Under the DACA program, those eligible were allowed to register with the DHS. In return, the DHS would defer any deportation action or proceedings. DACA residents were issued Social Security cards, and pay weekly towards Medicare.“These are people we can only hope to have as citizens,” Perez said. She pointed out that DACA residents, who number about 700,000 nationally, with abut 122,000 residing in New York State, have a history of accomplishment in this country, including many who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.The Supreme Court decision describes the program as applying “to childhood arrivals who were under age 31 in 2012; have continuously resided here since 2007; are current students, or have completed high school, or are honorably discharged veterans; have not been convicted of any serious crimes; and do not threaten national security…”In January 2017, however, Trump became president. The new administration acted quickly to end the DACA program. According to the Supreme Court decision, they acted too quickly. “The dispute before the Court is not whether DHS may rescind DACA. All parties agree that it may. The dispute is instead primarily about the procedure the agency fol­lowed in doing so.”Then acting DHS secretary Elaine C. Duke laid out in September 2017 how DACA would be dissolved. “No new applications would be accepted, but DHS would entertain applications for two-year renewals from DACA recipients whose benefits were set to expire within six months. For all other DACA recipients, previously is­sued grants of deferred action and work authorization would not be revoked but would expire on their own terms, with no prospect for renewal.”Without DACA, all those who had registered with DHS would be vulnerable to possible deportation action.Advocacy groups, such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, sued the administration, temporarily preventing Duke’s action from taking effect.The court found by a narrow 5-4 decision that Duke “had violated the Administrative Procedure Act by failing to adequately address important factors bearing on her decision.” She had failed to follow the process dictated by the APA, the court’s decision said.The ruling makes it clear that DACA, which was created by the executive branch, could be undone by the president, if the proper process was followed. “Whether DACA is illegal is, of course, a legal determina­tion, and therefore a question for the Attorney General,” the decision reads.The decision was written by Chief Justice John G. Roberts. Roberts, normally a staunch conservative, had switched sides to join the four liberal justices in voting to block the administration’s action. The other four conservative justices voted to uphold the DHS.It is the second time in a year that Roberts has crossed over to side with the liberal members of the court for procedural reasons on a case with major implications for the immigrant community. In June 2019, Roberts wrote the decision in the case regarding whether to allow a question to be placed on the Census that is now being conducted, asking about the immigration status of everyone in the respondent’s household. In voting to reject placing that question on this year’s census, along with the four liberals on the court, Roberts did not question the Constitutionality of the Trump administration’s objective.Then, as now, it was just that they went about it without following the law.“DACA is not safe,” Perez reiterated. “They are going to try to find other ways to take away DACA.”Just as the Black Lives Matter movement is seeking legislative change to accomplish its goals, so too must the immigrant community and their advocates. Congress, she said, needs to codify DACA, and take it away from the whims of any president.t.e@indyeastend.comlast_img read more

Wilhelmsen Ships Service completes major project contract in Saudi

first_imgThe contract was awarded by one of the world’s largest cement producers and was handled by Wilhelmsen Ships Service’s Jeddah office. A complex operation involved road transportation of 160 km from Jeddah and 260 km from Yanbu.The Wilhelmsen Ships Service team, headed by Johan Ostnes, carried out a road survey prior to moving the cargo, ascertaining that the road was in good condition to take the weight of the heavy lifts.With the help of Saudi Arabia’s Department of Transport modifications were made at two junctions for the heavy lifts to be able to pass. According to the company the road surface was good – save for the last 10 km, which was dirt road and made for a challenging adventure.The cargo – consisting of tens of thousands of individual items – ranged from heavy lift items, some weighing up to 180 tonnes, to nuts and bolts and was worth a total of USD600 million.The transportation was carried out over a period of 18 months. The cement plant has commenced its initial test run and is expected to start production next month (September 2010). It will produce around 2 million tonnes of cement per annum for local use, as well as for export.last_img read more
