OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Kathleen Martini / Oller reporterAfter five consecutive losses, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team finally got out of its slump, pulling out a pair home wins against Quincy and Lindenwood this weekend.Junior outside hitter Michael Henchy said the five losses motivated the team to work much harder in practice, which helped them bring home two wins.“Our most recent practices have been our most successful, and I think that our losses have made us work much harder,” Henchy said.The Buckeyes (10-13, 6-6) ended their weekend with a second victory this season against Lindenwood in St. Charles, Mo., 3-2.Henchy led the Buckeyes with a season-high 19 kills and added 12 digs, while redshirt-freshman middle blocker Driss Guessous finished second on the team with 14 kills of his own.Junior middle blocker Dustan Neary said concentration was a main contributor to the team’s wins this weekend.“We have had a lot of trouble focusing all of our attention on the match — this weekend I definitely saw a change in that, which I think made a huge impact on the outcome,” Neary said.The Buckeyes started off their alumni weekend with a 3-1 win against Quincy in Quincy, Ill., Friday.Nearly notched a career-best seven blocks, while Henchy finished with 11 kills and five block assists. Redshirt-junior opposite Andrew Lutz led the team with 12 kills and added nine digs, and Guessous had five blocks.With the season winding down and the Men’s Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Championships quickly approaching — it is set to begin April 18 — the Buckeyes need all the wins they can get to help with the seeding of the tournament.Coach Pete Hanson said if the Buckeyes win their remaining two league matches of the season against Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne and Loyola, they have a chance to be placed fourth going into the conference tournament.He added that the team is not focused on the tournament right now and still has a couple of matches remaining in the season before it can start preparing.“We are not looking that far ahead, we have to get through these matches one at a time. Thinking ahead to the tournament is a distraction when preparing for the next match,” Hanson said.OSU is next slated to take on IPFW Friday at 7 p.m. read more

Parris Campbell among young players to catch Urban Meyers eye at Ohio

Redshirt-freshman wide receiver Parris Campbell (21) caught the eye of coach Urban Meyer during OSU’s annual Spring Game at Ohio Stadium on April 18.Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern PhotographerIn a scrimmage that featured 75 passing attempts and just 12 rushing attempts by running backs, a 17-14 final score might seem underwhelming.But Ohio State’s Spring Game on Saturday at Ohio Stadium wasn’t about showing how much the team has improved. In fact, after the quasi-game, coach Urban Meyer said the Buckeyes were worse than they were in January when they won the College Football Playoff National Championship.Regardless of that regression, Meyer said he was looking for certain young players to stand out. Some didn’t make the grade, but others — like redshirt-freshman wide receiver Parris Campbell — put on displays that could earn them playing time going forward.Meyer said he called on Campbell to score from four yards out with Campbell’s Scarlet team trailing Gray, 10-7.“He looked at me, like, ‘Heck with this, man.’ He took the ball, put his left foot in the ground and drove in, made a great cut and scored,” Meyer said of the play. “And I saw his celebration in the end zone. That’s one I remember from the Spring Game. That’s going to help him get into the rotation.”Redshirt-freshman wide receiver Parris Campbell (21) caught 5 passes for 38 yards and a touchdown during OSU’s Spring Game on April 18 at Ohio Stadium.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Lantern PhotographerBut the fourth-year OSU coach added that not every player he called on to step up succeeded in the same fashion as Campbell.“I asked a couple guys to make a play and they didn’t do it,” Meyer said. “Now I have to find out why when I meet with them next week and just get into the psychological impact of playing in the stadium has on a player.”While players like Campbell used the Spring Game to make their final strides toward the rotation, others simply cemented their spot after a strong spring overall.Redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Sam Hubbard had the coaching staff raving throughout the 15-practice slate, and built on that with two sacks and a fumble recovery in the scrimmage. Meyer said Hubbard has locked up a spot in the rotation, but the former safety and tight end said he still has more room to improve.“I have a long way to go before I’m one of the guys that’s routinely in the rotation,” Hubbard said after the Spring Game. “It’s only been a few months at defensive end and to be in the position I am, I’m very thankful.”Regardless of how far he feels he has to go, Meyer confirmed that Hubbard will rotate along with redshirt-sophomore defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis, as the duo helped replace Steve Miller opposite junior defensive lineman Joey Bosa.As for Campbell, receiver might be the position where OSU took the biggest hit, with Devin Smith and Evan Spencer turning their focus to an NFL future. Like Hubbard, Campbell has a chance to find his way on to the field next season after catching his coach’s eye on Saturday.But for now, the Buckeyes have some time off before returning to fall camp, and ultimately opening the 2015 regular season against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va. read more

Cosmopolitan jcpenney Partner in Clothing Line

first_img“[It’s] the brand coming to life in a fashion realm,” says Susan Schulz, Cosmo’s editorial brand director. “The process has been very smooth. Everybody, I think, in the beginning was a little nervous. I don’t know that it’s ever really been done before that a magazine would have this much input.”Cosmo will play a role in marketing and promotion of the line through traditional ad placements, as well as content integration.A slideshow featured on the Cosmopolitan.com front page Thursday allows readers to link to a story about the product launch and includes an option to purchase the clothing from jcp.com.“One of my main jobs as we move forward is finding ways to integrate the product,” Schulz says. “How to promote the product in an organic way that makes sense for our reader. We know she doesn’t want to be clobbered with it, she doesn’t want to be getting a message about the Cosmo Collection every five seconds.”“But where it does make sense to her, we want to be able to tell her, ‘Look at these new shoes. They’re in store now. We think you’re going to love them.’ “The product launch is the first of its kind for Cosmopolitan, which attracts more than 18 million print readers and 8.5 unique monthly visitors. The company has participated in collaborative media projects with Sterling Books and YouTube, however.jcpenney also signed a licensing deal with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia [MSLO] in December of 2011. That agreement calls for a line of MSLO products to be sold online and in retail outlets that will be constructed within most jcpenney stores by February 2013. jcpenney also invested $38.5 million in MSLO in the deal. You can now get your Cosmo at jcpenney—not the magazine though, the clothing line.The Cosmopolitan Collection, a new brand of lingerie, sleepwear and accessories inspired by the world’s top-selling women’s magazine, went on sale this weekend at jcpenney’s 600-plus retailers across the country and on jcp.com.The launch culminates a two-year collaborative process between the companies that began with discussions between recently-departed Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Kate White and former jcpenney CEO Mike Ullman in November of 2010. last_img read more

Facebook mishandled phone numbers facial recognition FTC to reportedly allege

first_img Politics Tech Industry Security Facebook FTC The FTC will reportedly allege Facebook deceived users about its use of their phone numbers. Angela Lang/CNET Facebook misled users about how it handled their phone numbers and gave insufficient information about a photo tagging tool, the Federal Trade Commission will reportedly allege in a complaint. The complaint will go along with a settlement the FTC reached with the social media giant last week, according to a Tuesday report by The Washington Post. In the complaint, regulators express concern with Facebook’s previous use of two-factor authentication, which provides users with a one-time password via text when they log on to the platform. Some advertisers were able to target Facebook users who added that contact information, perhaps without the users’ knowledge, people familiar with the matter told the Post. The FTC will also reportedly allege that Facebook didn’t provide enough information to users about being able to turn off a tool for identifying and suggesting photo tags. Sources told the Post they expect the FTC’s complaint and settlement with Facebook to be announced Wednesday. As part of the settlement, Facebook will reportedly be fined a record-setting $5 billion for its alleged privacy mishaps. The FTC began investigating Facebook last year following revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a UK political consultancy, accessed data from as many as 87 million Facebook users without their permission. The agency is looking into whether Facebook violated an agreement with the US government in which it pledged to improve its privacy practices.The FTC declined to comment. Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. 0 Share your voice Post a comment Tagslast_img read more

State Commission On Judicial Conduct Suspends Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal

first_imgScreengrabMontgomery County Road Bond Project MapThe State Commission on Judicial Conduct on Tuesday suspended Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal without pay.A grand jury indicted Doyal last Friday on misdemeanor charges that he violated the Texas Open Meetings Act. The grand jury also indicted Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley and Precinct 4 Commissioner Jim Clark.They are accused of improperly exchanging emails concerning the county’s $280 million road bond that voters passed in November.“It is a rare thing for the State Commission on Judicial Conduct to suspend somebody, because they only take that action when they are uniformly convinced that something is definitely wrong,” said Brandon Rottinghaus, who teaches political science at the University of Houston. “They typically use public sanctions, or private sanctions as a mechanism to try to coerce the individual involved to change their ways.”Punishment for the charge is up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500.If convicted, the men will be removed from office.

Thank You Softball

first_imgLove always,Sid Melton, The Dirtiest Kid on the Diamond Thank you softball and thank you Card Nation. Most athletes only get four years to play the sport they love, but I was fortunate enough to get five. Despite having to sit out my junior year due to injury, I feel lucky to have been able to play for an extra year, and am thankful for a higher power knowing that I needed it. Story Links Looking back at my career as a Louisville Cardinal, I can honestly and genuinely say that I gave this sport everything that I had. I let my passion for the game show and I am happy that I did all that I could do to leave my heart on the field in my final regional appearance. Of course, it was not all easy all the time, but no true love story ever is. My time at UofL was about more than just playing the sport I love. I was given the opportunity to become an educated, young woman, who was able to toss the ball around with her best friends. My name and the word softball have been said in the same sentence for most of my life. Growing up, I played every sport that I could. I loved being known as the girl who was faster than all of the boys, the girl who could jump the highest, and the girl who could throw any type of ball well. However, being known as the girl in softball pants covered in dirt was by far my favorite compliment. No matter what team I was on I would always pride myself on being the dirtiest one out there. I always thought that the dirtier I was, the harder I played.center_img My time as a Cardinal has ended after five beautiful years. Our parents always tell us how time moves far too fast, and oh, were they right. Soon, my scratches will heal, my scars will fade, and my locker will be occupied by the next eager freshman to go where I have gone. I feel an unmeasurable amount of gratitude for this sport. As much as I wish I could continue my journey as a collegiate athlete, I cannot. I will forever cherish my years as a Cardinal, and will continue to love my sport, but just as a spectator. I carried that idea with me throughout travel ball, high school ball, and ultimately college ball. There are very few photos of me in a clean Louisville jersey.  To me, that means I played hard. Being able to play softball at Louisville and wear those ten letters across my chest has been my biggest accomplishment to date. During my five years I have made friends who quickly became more like family. I have shared in experiences that were both amazing and traumatic. Softball has led me to every corner of the country and given me more than I had ever expected. #L1C4 Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Gurusaday museum A priceless collection of rare artefacts

The EU Court of Justice has ruled that making copi

first_imgThe EU Court of Justice has ruled that making copies of TV programmes available via the cloud is a “communication to the public” and must be authorised by the copyright holder.In a case that pitted Italian broadcaster Mediaset against UK-based online TV provider VCAST, the court ruled that the 2001 EU copyright directive overrode national rules that allow companies to provide cloud-based recording services in this case.VCAST offers a service that enables consumers to choose a TV show and, which VCAST then records for playback from the cloud. The company had attempted to seek a ruling from a Turin court that its business was legal because it fell under the ‘private copy exception’ of the directive, which enables individuals to record shows for their own consumption at a later time.The Italian court found against VCAST but referred the question of whether the ‘private copy exception’ covered commercial enterprises providing a remote recording service in the cloud to the EU Court of Justice.The Court of Justice has now ruled that “the concept of an ‘act of communication’ refers to any transmission of the protected works, irrespective of the technical means or process used”.It said that “In the present case, the service provider at issue in the main proceedings records programmes broadcast and makes them available to its customers via the Internet” with the persons targeted constituting “a public”.It drew the distinction that “the original transmission made by the broadcasting organisation, on the one hand, and that made by the service provider at issue in the main proceedings, on the other, are made under specific technical conditions, using a different means of transmission for the protected works, and each is intended for its public”.As a result, the court said, “it follows that, without the rightholder’s consent, the making of copies of works by means of a service such as that at issue in the main proceedings could undermine the rights of that rightholder.”Earlier, presenting the case to the court, advocate-general Maciej Szpunar had opined that the private copy exception “must be interpreted as precluding national legislation which permits the activity of providing, without the copyright holders’ consent, an online recording service for terrestrial television programmes which are freely accessible in the territory of that Member State, where it is the provider of the service, and not its user, that receives the terrestrial broadcasting signal from which the recording is made.”Szupmar was careful to make clear, however, that “an excessively strict interpretation of [the private copy exception] would not be justified” in that cloud DVR services require the “intervention of a third party, whether the provider of that storage space or another person”.He said that in the case of VCAST, it was doubtful that the user had “prior lawful access” to the work because the service could be used outside Italy or the catchment area of Italian digital-terrestrial TV, because its users formed ‘a new public’ other than the one targeted by Mediaset and because VCAST provided the service for profit.“It follows that where VCAST makes available television programmes as part of its recording service, this constitutes an infringement of the copyright of television organisations, and possibly of other rightholders, if it is done without their consent,” he said.Mediaset immediately hailed the ruling as “a real turning point” and “a milestone in case law”. It said that it was now clear that any company wanting to retransmit TV signals of a competing broadcaster for its own commercial purposes must obtain the prior authorisation of the rightsholder.Mediaset claims that the ruling will apply to other disputes such as where satellite operators retransmit channels without prior authorisation.last_img read more
