Renaissance falls, 67-59

first_imgStefan Kaluz, the Sea Kings’ 6-foot-9 junior center, scored a game-high 23 points and 6-foot-5 forward Joe Eberhard scored 18 to pull away down the stretch for a 67-59 victory. Corona del Mar shot 58 percent (22 for 38) and out-rebounded the Wildcats, 34-18, to claim its first championship since 1995. Hector Harold’s free throw with 2:51 left cut the Sea Kings’ lead to 54-51, but the Wildcats couldn’t creep closer and dropped to 27-2 heading into next week’s state playoffs. Cook finished with a team-high 17 points and four rebounds, but he was only 7 of 23 from the field. He also knew the Wildcats let a golden opportunity slip away. “We came in here feeling like we could get it done,” Cook said. “Maybe we were a little over-confident thinking we should win. But give them a lot of credit, they out-played us and we didn’t make enough big shots. The Wildcats made the leap to III-A this season and carried the No. 2 seed into Saturday’s championship against No. 4 Corona del Mar at the Honda Center. But the Sea Kings’ size proved too much for a Renaissance program that is in only its seventh season of existence and without a senior on its roster. “But our season isn’t over. I think we can do better in state, and we’ll take this loss into our heads and perform better next week.” The Sea Kings (21-8) never led by more than eight points but responded every time the Wildcats made a run. “In the second half we did a better job, but they did a great job of executing and you have to give them credit,” Wildcats coach Sid Cooke said. “It still comes down to maturity. We don’t have a senior on this team and we’re still learning how to play in these big games. It hurts right now, but we’ll learn from it.” The Wildcats trailed 17-10 after the opening quarter, but Yader Combs’ floater with 20 seconds left in the half trimmed the Sea Kings’ lead to 28-27. The Wildcats trailed, 29-27, at the break after getting out-rebounded,, 18-6. Kaluz was unstoppable in the first half by connecting on 7 of 10 shots for 14 points, but Josh Thomas and Cook helped keep the Wildcats close by scoring nine and eight points, respectively. The Wildcats shot 50 percent (9 of 18) from the field. “He (Kaluz) did a great job,” Cooke said. “We couldn’t double-team him too much because they had good shooters. We had to pick our poison, but the bottom line is that he had a good game.” Thomas scored 15 points and 6-foot-8 sophomore center Anthony Stover finished with 10 points and five rebounds for Renaissance, but it was obvious nerves still played a role. “I was up every hour and a half last night thinking about this game,” Stover said. “Playing at nine in the morning is tough. I couldn’t sleep.” fred.robledo@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4485 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Polishing an artistic gem

first_img• Photo Gallery: Baldwin Park Civic Center BALDWIN PARK – The city is almost done transforming an old treasure into a new community gem. The Historic Central School Auditorium has been under renovation since 2004 with crews working to convert it into a new Arts and Recreation Center. Manuel Carrillo, director of the city’s recreation and community services, said the $5.4 million project is slated to be completed by July. He said he hopes it will attract thousands of visitors each week. “This is one of the best kept secrets around,” Carrillo said. “We hope to be able to share it with everyone.” Officials said the city received a $2.5 million grant from the state’s Department of Parks and Recreation and said additional funds were secured through Community Development Block Grants and refinancing bonds. The center, at 14403 E. Pacific Ave., will offer a variety of attractions for people across the San Gabriel Valley to enjoy, including an indoor amphitheater, a multi-purpose room, board room and an art gallery that will feature pieces from local and national artists, Carrillo said. The center also will have a full kitchen, dance studio, fine arts studio, arts and crafts studio, educational garden and an outdoor screen where movies will be shown. In addition, a portion of the center will serve as the permanent home for the Baldwin Park Historical Society and will have pictures and artifacts on display. City officials said the auditorium was built in 1936 as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Depression-era Works Progress Administration work relief program, which was created to give jobs and skills to the unemployed during the Great Depression. Mayor Manuel Lozano said he thinks the building’s rich history will draw a lot of visitors. “The nostalgia of having an actual structure from the 1930s will draw people alone,” Lozano said. “There are very \ buildings of that type still around.” Lozano said he is proposing to have the center named after Irene Pinedo, a longtime Baldwin Park resident and historian who recently died. Carrillo said the building was originally built for the Baldwin Park Unified School District’s school performances and activities. In the late 1950s the art deco building was used to hold council meetings while City Hall was being built. In the late 1970s it became a storage facility and has been that way for the past four decades. Ana Montenegro, who grew up in Baldwin Park, said she remembers walking to the auditorium as a child and is excited to see it renovated. “I used to walk there with our teachers from Margaret Heath School when I was 8,” Montenegro, 76, said. “I’m glad they saved the building because it’s so special, especially since it was built by people during the Depression.” Montenegro said she stood on the stage inside the auditorium when she graduated from middle school and attended beauty pageants there as a child. While the building will have a lot of new features, Carrillo said the project was designed to preserve old staircases, handrails and doors. Carrillo said the facility will be open five days a week for 10 hours a day and either a Saturday or Sunday. nisha.gutierrez@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MUFC confirm medical and Dutch star arrives at club

first_imgManchester United manager Louis van Gaal says the club do not need another striker and he will not buy just for the sake of it, but hinted he may make one more signing if the opportunity arises.He was speaking at the unveiling of new signing Memphis Depay who joined in a £25m deal from PSV Eindhoven.Depay could be set for a more central role following the impending exit of Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce but Van Gaal refused to be drawn on the issue of possible replacements.“We have enough strikers, but one [more] is always possible,” he said.“I have said many times you know transfers are processes and when I read the papers you can read that also.“We cannot say anything about our transfers or strategy otherwise our opponents can profit from it.“Manchester United will not buy to buy. I am not a manager who wants to buy players, I want to develop players.“Sometimes we have to buy but when you buy it has to be better than what you have – that is the theory but in the season we shall see if that is true.”The former Netherlands coach also confirmed defender Matteo Darmian is scheduled to have a medical ahead of a move from Torino.The 25-year-old full-back is travelling to England after a fee, believed to be in the region of £12.7million, was agreed.“I have read that in the papers. It is true,” said the Dutchman.Asked whether he was on his way to Manchester for a medical, Van Gaal added: “Yes.” 1last_img read more

Rashid Toha sinks Villa at Namboole

first_imgToha scored the only goal of the game as Onduparaka defeated Villa on Wednesday (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueSC Villa 0-1 Onduparaka FCMandela National Stadium, NambooleWednesday, 03-10-2018Onduparaka FC maintained their 100% record-start to the new season with a hard fought 1-0 victory over SC Villa on Wednesday.In the game played at Namboole, Rashid Toha’s second minute strike proved to be the telling difference on a day that Villa missed a couple of late chances to find the equaliser.Like it was in the last match, Villa were dealt a huge blow before the start of the game as some of their players including Pius Wangi could not be availed with licences to feature on the day.Inside the first minute of the game, Savio Kabugo brought down Vianni Ssekanugo out side the area for the first free-kick of the game. Up stepped Onduparaka defender Rashid Toha who expertly placed the ball over Villa goalkeeper Brian Bwete and into the top right-hand corner for 1-0.The Caterpillars could have doubled their advantage on 20 minutes but Ssekajugo could only blaze over from inside the area after the pacey forward had beaten Villa defender Moses Kigundu.Villa started growing into the game and missed two chances of their own to level matters before half time. First it was captain Ambrose Kirya who headed wide off the mark a David Owori cross from the right and minutes later, Bashir Mutanda failed to put enough power into his tap-in after he was teed up by Joseph Ssemuju.In the second half, it was all Villa as Onduparaka tried to see out their 1-0 lead.In search of an equaliser, Moses Basena introduced cult hero-Mike Sserumaga to try and provide the much needed inspiration.With two minutes to play, Sserumaga threaded a well weighted through ball for Ssemuju who cut it back for Kirya but unfortunately, the captain’s first time goal-bound effort was blocked by Toha.In additional time, Owori crossed in low for Mutanda who blazed over from six yard, much to the agony of hundreds of Villa fans in attendance.Despite the relentless pressure, Onduparaka managed to hold onto their lead and earn a first ever away victory against Villa on the third time of asking.The Victory took Onuparaka to six points, level with Vipers SC and Bright Stars atop the league standings.For Villa, they slip to 12 on the log with one point from two games.The other games played on Wednesday:-Ndejje 1-0 Mbarara City-Nyamityobora 2-3 Bright Stars-Paidah Black Angels 2-1 Police FCNext fixture:-Mbarara City vs Express, Sunday-07-10-2018 @Kavumba Recreational Grounds.Comments Tags: onduparaka fcSC VillaStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguetoplast_img read more

Open Thread: Since When Is “Hacker” a Bad Word?

first_imgjolie odell 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts That’s my rather long-winded and subjective definition (and defense) of the term hacker. But let’s hear what you think about it in the comments. Are hackers our heroes? Should they be handsomely compensated for their special brands of magic? Or are they still just digital vigilantes, mischievous at best and criminal at worst?How do you define the word “hacker”? Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… I was distressed a few days ago when someone in a comment thread mockingly referred to recommendations made by a fairly notorious hacker, suggesting that a gray hat wouldn’t give sound advice about personal Internet security.I shook my head for the world of end users to whom hacker is a derogatory term used to describe anyone from malevolent phishers to script kiddies who find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Certainly, I’ve seen hackers pull off feats of questionable legality and dubious utility. But by and large, the hackers I’ve known and loved have gone on to have brilliant careers in infosec, network administration and even startup-building and application programming. Does the word hacker need a PR facelift? Do we need to educate folks in the real world about what a hacker is and does? What do you think a hacker is, anyway? I’m fascinated by hacker lore, such as the Jargon File. (Do NOT click that link unless you’ve got a couple hours to kill reading about the earliest days of what would eventually become the Internet. It’s truly enthralling stuff that will have you talking about Usenet heroes in archaic slang for months afterward.) I’m in love with this famous webcomic series about legendary hackers, and I can’t wait to go to DEFCON next year.Hackers, it seems to me, do what they do in the name of envelope-pushing and pure curiosity. “What’s this button do?” and “I wonder if I can get in there?” and “How could I make this thing/program perform that action/function?” are the fundamental questions in a hacker-like mind.Hackers come in all shapes and sizes, and relatively few of them are breaking into your Gmail account or trying to steal your credit card number. There are hardware hackers who will try to make the world’s smallest netbook run Snow Leopard or do dazzling demonstrations with robots or LED displays. There are some hackers who want to expose vulnerabilities in order to build a better firewall or improve network security, and there are hackers who believe strongly in the freedom of information. There are – or were, at least – phone system hackers who figured out how to dial numbers using trinkets in cereal boxes. These days, we’re seeing more mobile hackers, too. Remember the story about that iPhone hacker who gave the world a RickRoll worm, then got hired for his ingenuity? And not least by any means are the hackers who make up a huge chunk of today’s startup community, the young men and women who take all the lovely, big-picture ideas from executives and Photoshop files from UI designers and then work their magic to make it go. I think that’s what makes me particularly indignant: Internet users using technology built by hackers to complain about hackers.Also, the open-source movement would be completely dead if not for hackers, whose combination of creativity and anti-authoritarianism gave them the ability to stick it to the man and give us all a lot of great free software. Think about that the next time you’re happily pointing and clicking your way through a free web app based on Python and perhaps written by some dude working on a Linux machine. What’s gone wrong with the world? When did hackers start becoming so misunderstood and under-appreciated? Yes, it’s true that some hackers cross boundaries, both civil and criminal, when pushing their various envelopes. But the true criminals – those who’d run DDoS attacks on social services or steal users’ bank logins – aren’t really what you’d call hackers at all. They’re under-skilled lowlifes, and there are other designations altogether for that type of person. (This is not to downplay the importance of national information security, however, and you might be wrong if you think that hackers do more harm than good for that cause, as well. Exposing vulnerabilities in the networks of our intelligence and military communities is something many white- and gray-hat hackers do routinely, and they do so without selling the information to foreign governments or any such nonsense.)
