Washington State tailback Dwight Tardy was averaging 66 yards, and finished a career-high 214 on a career-best 37 carries. Even backup Kevin McCall got into the running frenzy, carrying 11 times for 51 yards. He had 22 carries for 105 yards total in the first seven games. Bruins senior Michael Norris, who played the nickelback spot, was asked if the Cougars’ offensive approach came as a surprise. “Definitely. It definitely did,” Norris said. “I was pretty much thinking more passes, given their history.” The Cougars struggled to run the ball throughout the season, but quarterback Alex Brink was throwing the ball well. Washington State led the Pacific-10 in passing at 299.6 yards per game. But during last week’s bye, the Cougars made it a point to work on their run blocking, and restructured their game plan to focus on their rushing attack. “The offensive line did a great job,” Tardy said. “They worked so hard during the week, during practice, and even staying after practice.” UCLA defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker said he expected the Cougars to try and run the ball, so much so he said certain periods of practice during the week were designed with that in mind. Still, Ealker made the decision to have his defensive try and stop the Cougars’ running attack by playing a nickel defense (five defensive backs, two linebackers) and try to slow down the passing game, rather than play a base 4-3 defense (four linemen, three linebackers) in an effort to first shut off the run game. That strategy didn’t always work, so Walker was forced to play more in the base defense as the game progressed. And by the end of a game in which the defense was on the field for 38 minutes, Washington State was able to salt away the win by running the ball. The Cougars scored two touchdowns in the final 7:31, including a 51-yarder by Tardy with 42 seconds remaining, to provided the lopsided final score. “At times, I had to commit more bodies (to the run) and take chances in the passing game and leave guys one-on-one,” Walker said. “It kind of fell in on us at the end.” brian.dohn@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgBournemouth boss Eddie Howe has admitted managing England is “the ultimate job”, but insisted he is currently fully committed to his role with the Cherries.Howe was a contender to replace Roy Hodgson when he stepped down as the Three Lions head coach following Euro 2016, and he is now being linked with the post again following Sam Allardyce’s shock departure.The 38-year-old has previously said he would relish the chance to coach England one day but insisted on Thursday morning that he has not heard from the Football Association, while reaffirming his commitment to Bournemouth.He told a press conference: “They haven’t come to me and my message is very similar. I am committed here, I love the job.“The England job is the ultimate job, I have signed players very recently and I am committed to them. I need to show them the same loyalty that they showed me.“I have a lot more to do here. I have signed players very recently and I am committed to them, I have a future to them, the rest of the season.“It’s all hypothetical of course but I could not turn my back on this club. I want to show loyalty to the people who have employed me, the same loyalty that they showed me.“It is very nice of people to say [that I am the right man for the job], but it has no bearing on my decision. My aims are to move this club forward, to try and lead this club up in the Premier League this season and that is my only thought.“It sounds arrogant but I am not interested in the job now, but you never know what will happen in the future.”Allardyce’s exit as Three Lions boss came as a result of an investigation by the Daily Telegraph, and separate findings by the newspaper into corruption have also alleged that ten unnamed managers have taken bribes in player transfers.But Howe has distanced himself from the story.When asked if he had taken a bung, he said: “Certainly not.“The structure at this football club is I deal with the team and somebody else does the financial deal with the agents.“I am removed from the financial deals at the club and I think that suits me fine to be on the pitch with the players and training.“I think most football clubs work how we do, that would be my guess.” Eddie Howe is happy at Bournemouth 1last_img read more

first_imgLEONA VALLEY – An organization with ties to the Church of Scientology that wants to open a drug treatment center in Bouquet Canyon was cited for dozens of violations by state inspectors within the last five years, according to documents. The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday will vote on whether to allow Narconon International to open a 66-bed facility near Leona Valley. Narconon runs four treatment facilities in the state. At the Newport Beach facility, state inspectors found in January 2003 that staff members administered medication to residents without authorization and had alcohol on the premises. In February 2003, state inspectors found two staff members at Narconon’s Watsonville facility went drinking with a graduating resident from the program. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Clark Carr, the head of Narconon, said the two were fired and his organization has corrected the other problems and violations that have been found at Narconon facilities. “We completely agree with strict standards and unannounced surprise inspections,” Carr said. “We’re glad to have them.” Another violation state Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs inspectors found at Narconon facilities was beds without mattress pads, including an inspection at the Newport Beach facility in November 2004, that found 24 beds without pads. Carr said he was unsure why the pads might have been missing, but he said that problem had been corrected as well. Narconon was created 40 years ago and uses the writings of L. Ron Hubbard, late founder of the Church of Scientology, to treat addicts. Instead of administering drugs, the program puts addicts on a regimen of vitamins, including niacin, and has them “sweat out” toxins with time in the sauna. “We’ve been doing it for decades in California and throughout the United States and the world, and we have a very good record,” Carr said. Sheriff Lee Baca has expressed support for Narconon going into the Bouquet Canyon site. Although the sheriff said he has not visited a Narconon facility, he has been briefed on the program and he liked what he heard. “This is America’s No. 1 health problem, illegal drug use, and to a certain extent legal drug use, including alcohol,” Baca said. “So I’m an advocate for any program that can help people get away from drugs and their addiction to drugs. That’s why I support it.” But the Narconon approach to fighting drugs has been questioned by outside experts. Narconon has a program to educate schoolchildren about drugs, which the California Department of Education evaluated last year and found wasn’t based on science or medicine. Jack O’Connell, state superintendent of public instruction, asked that schools not use the Narconon program, but Carr said the program is still taught at schools at the request of on-site administrators. The inaccurate information given to students included that drugs burn up vitamins and nutrients, and that small amounts of drugs are stored in fat and are released at a later time, making the person want to use the drug again, according to the education department report. “The materials I’ve seen in their brochures would suggest to me that the treatment that they provide certainly is not in line with current scientific thinking about addiction,” said professor Richard Rawson, associate director of Integrated Substance Abuse Programs at the University of California, Los Angeles. “Some of the use of vitamins and saunas and all of those things certainly may be good general health practices, but they have nothing to do with the effective treatment of addiction as far as any literature has ever demonstrated.” If the county Board of Supervisors approves the Narconon facility for Bouquet Canyon, it would be the largest Narconon facility in California. The county Regional Planning Commission in March approved the project, but Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich called for the Board of Supervisors to hear the matter after hearing concerns about the project. Several residents in the rural area oppose the project, citing safety concerns from addicts going in and out. Residents also feel that Narconon has tried to bully them to drop their opposition. Ron and Sherry Howell, who live near the former boarding school site that would be used for the project, received a letter from an attorney for Narconon in January telling them to stop attacking the project or face legal consequences. They received the letter after submitting their written opposition to the project to the county Department of Regional Planning, and after Sherry Howell had written a letter to a local newspaper. “It tells us that we’re dealing with somebody that doesn’t care what they do to people to intimidate them, to shut them up,” Ron Howell said. Alice Benoit, who would be living near the facility, also feels that Narconon has targeted opponents of the project, including herself. “They kind of like invade our Town Council meetings and shout us down,” she said.

first_img Tottenham have drawn three and lost one game at Arsenal in the Premier League since Pochettino took over at Spurs 1 Mauricio Pochettino felt aggrieved with decisions in the build-up to both Arsenal goals as Tottenham suffered a 2-0 derby defeat. Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez secured the Gunners a dominant 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium, but there was a hint of fortune about each of the first-half goals.Mustafi’s header came after referee Mike Dean had awarded a dubious free-kick for a foul on Sanchez, while Alexandre Lacazette appeared offside in the build-up to their second.Spurs boss Pochettino told Sky Sports: “I need to say nothing, everyone who was here or at home watching the game, they saw what happened. We have to move on. It’s not easy to accept, because we lose the game.“We were better than them until the goal. The free-kick (should not have been given) and I think (it was) offside.The first, sure (it was offside), the second one maybe.“In this type of game when you play top sides like Arsenal, it’s little details. It changed the game and that disappointed me. But that’s football. We have to accept.”Pochettino insisted Harry Kane and Dele Alli were fit to play the game.The duo pulled out of England’s two friendlies last week and produced lacklustre performances before both were substituted with 15 minutes left at the Emirates Stadium.“Yes they were OK to play of course,” Pochettino added. “But after 2-0, 15 minutes to finish the game, I think to not take any risks. Then we tried to put (Fernando) Llorente and Son (Heung-min) on fresh and try to score, and we had a few chances to score.”last_img read more rounds up all the latest transfer news and football gossip from Saturday’s papers and online… Getty Getty Real Madrid are monitoring Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, who has been told he can leave the club for the right price.

first_imgWestern Carolina University faculty and staff must not allow the death of beloved Chancellor David O. Belcher nor an unsuccessful search for his successor to divert their attention from working to move the institution forward and supporting growing numbers of students through rigorous academic and extracurricular programs.In her Wednesday, Aug. 15, Opening Assembly address centered on the theme “Choose Great,” Interim Chancellor Alison Morrison-Shetlar called the 2018-19 academic year “…the end of an era at WCU, but the beginning of a legacy.”“We have achieved incredible things together,” Morrison-Shetlar said. “We have embraced our mission – our purpose. We have changed lives. But we cannot push pause on our momentum. Our students deserve much more.”Belcher, WCU chancellor since 2011, died June 17 after battling brain cancer for more than two years. Morrison-Shetlar, provost at WCU since 2014, has been serving as the university’s CEO since Belcher went on medical leave Dec. 31, 2017.A national search for WCU’s next chancellor came to an unanticipated and unsuccessful close July 16 following a special called meeting of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors on July 12. The search is on hold as the board reviews the process for selecting chancellors across the UNC System, with new guidelines expected sometime in September.“You were not expecting me to be standing up here this morning. You were expecting me to be back in my provost seat and for a newly appointed chancellor to be addressing you,” Morrison-Shetlar said early in her remarks.“You may be feeling anxious and uncertain about what comes next. You are not alone. Much of what we are anxious and uncertain about, however, is completely out of our hands. What I can say with certainty is that we have amazing chancellor search co-chairs in Board of Trustees Chair Pat Kaemmerling and Vice Chair Bryant Kinney. They and the committee remain committed to the task of finding the next great leader for WCU, and they will not let us down,” she told a packed house in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.Morrison-Shetlar said that she also remains committed to her task – that of guiding the university during an unexpectedly extended time of transition in leadership.“I will be present in this role, and I will put everything I have into the job of interim chancellor, with the goal of supporting your success and the success of our students,” she said. “It has taken everyone in this auditorium to build WCU into what it is today, and I know that, with your continued commitment, things are going to continue in the right direction. We have all made choices every day that have led us to success.”Turning attention to the year ahead, Morrison-Shetlar said that the incoming freshman class – the first admitted to WCU through the NC Promise tuition plan – will be the largest in university history, with move-in day set for Friday, Aug.17. Student enrollment numbers should be record-setting in most student populations, including new transfer and new graduate students, she said.“We must continue to grow to meet the needs of students and the demands of our region and our state. But, we will choose to grow responsibly and sustainably, with a focus on maintaining academic excellence and delivering an unmatched total student experience,” she said.Addressing WCU’s role in regional economic development, Morrison-Shetlar pointed out the university’s recently announced partnership with a local broadband provider to expand high-speed internet access in the Cullowhee Valley and an upcoming conference hosted by WCU on the outdoor products industry.“Our region is moving forward, and we will not only be at the table but be a leader in the conversation about regional progress,” she said. “We will choose to work collaboratively, across divisions, to leverage our strengths to improve the communities we serve.”Morrison-Shetlar reminded the group that WCU has taken a variety of steps to address faculty and staff salaries. The university invested nearly $4 million in enrollment growth money from last year in human resources – with $1.5 million to hire new faculty, $890,000 to hire new staff and $1.4 million put toward salary increases for existing faculty and staff.“Our strategic plan reaffirms our choice to continue to invest in recruiting and retaining the very best employees and in providing professional development resources for our faculty and staff,” she said. “We recognize that it is our people who make our institution great.”The 2018-19 academic year promises to be another busy time for construction, with a new campus residence hall now underway and expected to be ready for occupancy by fall 2019, the start of framing on a replacement for WCU’s 1970s-era Natural Sciences Building, a makeover of the main campus entrance, numerous renovation projects, and ongoing planning for a new lower campus residence hall and a replacement for an aging steam plant.After a special preview of WCU’s upcoming marketing campaign, “Choose Great,” Morrison-Shetlar urged faculty and staff to embrace that theme throughout their work in the year ahead.“The most important choice is the choice to be great. It’s what we’re asking of our students, and it’s what we should be asking of ourselves,” she said. “Yes, this work we do is hard. Resources are limited. There have been and will be setbacks. But we are persistent. We are innovative. We know how to work together. We have clear direction. We are already on a path to success. And we understand our mission – our purpose – is centered on students and their accomplishments. So, let’s choose to be great. Let’s choose it together. Let’s give this year everything we’ve got. Let’s start today.”Also speaking during the Opening Assembly, Acting Provost Carol Burton discussed the university’s revised strategic plan, which features a new strategic direction focusing on inclusion and diversity; the yearlong campus learning theme titled “Defining America”; new academic programs starting this fall or in the planning phases; liberal studies student learning outcomes; and a new university speaker series to launch Friday, Aug. 17, with poet and civil rights activist Nikki Giovanna as part of New Student Convocation.“I urge each of you to continue to nurture our students this year – it is my métier, my life’s work. I pledge my commitment to maintaining our dedication to academic excellence, and to building on the legacy left by Chancellor Belcher,” Burton said. “David told us that he trusted us to continue this worthy work and, in life, ‘to be a verb and not a noun.’ As a two-time alumna of this institution, I feel a special sense of responsibility to live up to his expectations. I trust you will join me in that endeavor.”Katherine Spalding, past president of the Student Government Association, opened the assembly with a collection of comments from recent alumni who were influenced in their post-WCU careers by Belcher and his wife, Susan Brummell Belcher. “These are just a few of the lives Chancellor Belcher changed. He changed my life, too,” Spalding said. “Maybe, he changed yours. There are thousands more like us. His greatest accomplishment is his impact on our lives.”Damon Sink, chair of the Faculty Senate, and Natalie Broom, chair of the Staff Senate, shared highlights of the previous year and expectations for the year ahead for the shared governance bodies.last_img read more
