Strange night favors Blazers in rout of the Raptors

first_imgPortland’s Jared Jeffries (1) scored two of the 23 points contributed by the Trail Blazers’ bench in Monday’s victory. PORTLAND — The Trail Blazers were hurting.It became clear when Wesley Matthews cut short his pregame workout that the Blazers would play without not one, but two starters on Monday night. Nicolas Batum had long decided that he needed to rest his bad back, but Matthews, stubborn until 80 minutes before tipoff, tried to push through the pain of a left hip flexor injury but could not.And so, the Trail Blazers would be searching.On any other night in the NBA, against any other opponent, this might have spelled disaster for the Blazers. However, the Toronto Raptors walked out of the visitor’s locker room.Crisis averted.The shorthanded Blazers handled the Raptors, 92-74, beating a team that has lost 11 of its last 12 games.The Blazers won their ninth game of the season and only an announced crowd of 16,863 saw it.Those in the house watched as the Blazers scored 18 points through the first quarter and missed all 20 3-point field goal attempts through the game. But there was no mystery why the Blazers still prevailed — the marquee names for the Raptors were in the locker room long before the team finished the second half with just 34 points.Portland might have been missing its best 3-point shooter (Batum) and its Iron Man (Matthews’ streak of 250 consecutive games played came to an end). But the team still had its 2012 All-Star.Although coach Terry Stotts joked in pregame that “we’re going to ride LaMarcus!” the team did just that, leaning on the veteran power forward for 30 points (11 for 19) and 12 rebounds.last_img read more

Vancouver Lake Half Marathon runners bask in sunny skies fast times

first_img Jesse McChesney didn’t follow his plan for Sunday’s Vancouver Lake Half Marathon. But that didn’t keep the 26-year-old from the result he was after.Despite running the first few miles significantly quicker than planned, the Vancouver resident reached the finish line on schedule, finishing in 1 hour, 9 minutes and 44 seconds to win the 13.1-mile race for a second time. McChesney and three of his training partners were the first four to cross the finish line at Vancouver Lake Park, but only McChesney broke the targeted 70-minute barrier.“I hit the time that I wanted, but I think if we had gone out a little more conservative, then I could have picked it up more on the second half,” McChesney said. “But I’m still happy with it.”There were plenty of happy faces among the hundreds of runners and walkers. The flagship annual event staged by the Clark County Running Club to fund its scholarship program, the Vancouver Lake Half Marathon is a race with a reputation for testing participants’ resolve with wind, rain and sometimes snow. Sunday’s conditions for the 24th edition of the January race would have been welcomed by runners any time of year.The sunshine helped get Susie Scott to the race.“I was tired this morning waking up, but I thought ‘I have to do it. It’s so great outside,’” Scott said.The 27-year-old Portland woman got it done in 1:24:45 and was the first female to the finish line.Race organizer Russ Zornick predicted that McChesney and training partners Ahrlin Bauman and Oscar Bauman of Vancouver were prepared to run fast. They started faster than planned. Jesse McChesney, who took first place, runs in annual Vancouver Lake Half Marathon on Sunday.last_img read more

Melco Resorts to delist from Philippine Stock Exchange this week

first_imgMelco Resorts and Entertainment (Philippines) is set to be delisted from the Philippine Stock Exchange as of this Tuesday 11 June after falling below the PSE’s minimum required threshold for public ownership.The delisting comes six months to the day since Melco (Philippines) completed the crossing over of shares from a tender offer aimed at increasing the shareholding of MCO (Philippines) Investments Limited. RelatedPosts Travellers aiming to delist from Philippine Stock Exchange on 21 October Resorts World Manila operator announces plans to delist, go private Melco (Philippines), which operates City of Dreams Manila, had previously been informed by the PSE on 14 May of its intention to delist the company this week due to a failure to reach the minimum public holding threshold for six full months.Last year’s tender offer saw MCO (Philippines) Investments Limited increase its stake from 72.54% to 96.1%, pushing the amount held by other shareholders well below the required 10% minimum public ownership requirement.Melco (Philippines) is also looking to further decrease the public holding via a reduction in the number of common shares in the company from 5.9 billion to just 11,800, with the value of each share increasing from Php1 to Php500,000. Under the plan, the grouping of Melco’s current share capital into larger batches would create fractional shares, with MCO to then purchase those fractional shares at a price of Php7.25 per current share – the same price as last year’s tender offer.Melco (Philippines) had originally planned its 2018 tender offer as a means of delisting from the PSE but reversed that decision at the time due to investor concerns.

Relix Publisher Death of CDs Inevitable

first_imgThis is the future, a combination of Amoeba Records and Starbucks. I would l spend all my free time there. When it happens look for me in the jamband section—I will be the one wearing Lederhosen.[EDITOR’S NOTE: Check out our video Q+A with Steve here …] Will 2008 be the year CDs disappear like vinyl, cassettes and 8 track tapes (ugh)? It is inevitable. With MP3 players getting smaller and cheaper, there is no real reason for CD’s to exist. Yes, I know some people still like CDs. Some people still like vinyl. Some people wear Lederhosen but it doesn’t mean they will come back into fashion anytime soon. Technology rarely returns to its roots; it evolves, gets cheaper, faster and more malleable. For audiophiles, there will still be FLAC files and other technology to keep the integrity of the sound.We still put CDs in our magazines (Relix, Global Rhythm, Metal Edge). Readers love them and it’s a great way for us to share the music we write about. I still play CDs but I prefer to download them to my iPod. I have 8,000 songs in my iPod. Try carrying 8,000 CDs around town. We also need a new shopping experience for music. Discovering new music alone at home is kind of depressing. Music is meant to be shared. That’s why concerts are held in venues and not over the Web. I want to meet people that share my passion for music and can turn me on to new bands.Imagine a world where you go to a music store, head over to the section you like (rock, jazz, classical, etc) and instead of standing in an aisle flipping through CDs, you can sit on a nice comfy couch and sip a latte with others who share your musical interest. There will be an expert host to tell you about new music coming out and recommend albums or songs. If you want to find things yourself you can scroll through a list of titles and listen to tracks on headphones. When you decide what you want you can either download it to a memory stick or directly into your iPod. The store will keep your titles on file should your MP3 player get lost.last_img read more

Domino Falls and Shelter Magazines Run for Cover

first_imgThe announcement by Condé Nast that it is shutting down Domino, its four-year-old shelter title, while not surprising, given the magazine advertising climate, hit harder than most. (On the day the news broke, I got more IMs—many including sad emoticons—than I have for other magazine closings.) I have an odd, emotional attachment to Domino. Perhaps it’s because their launch party—a swanky, $500,000 bash held in Lower Manhattan—was one of the first magazine launch parties I ever attended.(It could also be that I have somewhat of an interior design fetish, and sometimes fantasize about becoming an interior designer—with all the requisite antler-based light fixtures.)Obviously, I’m not alone. The outcry in the blogodome was fast and furious: Fans of the girlish, how-to decorating magazine owned by Condé Nast were vociferous in their disappointment, posting anguished comments on design sites like Apartment Therapy, Decorno and Design Sponge (which accrued 498 remarks in just a few hours), as well as nondesign sites, like The Huffington Post. Even Gawker readers set aside their snark to mourn. … The commenters bemoaned the death of a magazine that “felt” like them, and worried that their Domino subscription renewals, already paid, would yield subscriptions to Architectural Digest, Condé Nast’s remaining shelter title (median reader age: 50).In terms of a business, though, the magazine just wasn’t working for Condé Nast. Which I admit, working for a b-to-b magazine, is hard to fathom, considering its estimated—though surely inflated—ad revenue was up 24.3 percent to $60 million in 2008, and ad pages (down 4.1 percent) fared better than the industry average. (I mean, how can you not figure out a way to be a viable business with $60 million in ad revenue?)Not only that, the magazine was overdelivering on its rate base by about 200,000 copies—due mainly to taking over House & Garden’s subscriptions after Condé Nast decided to fold the 106-year-old title.I guess in the end, with a name like Domino, it was sure to fall.last_img read more

3D Issue Releases New Version of its Software

first_imgMaking It WorkTarget Publishing, a UK-based publisher of 21 trade and consumer magazines, has been working with 3D Issue for more than four years and has recently switched to the new version. Managing director David Cann says his company plans to leverage the PressJack tool to allow consumers to pull web content from its various magazines—covering topics such as health, education, food, and sports—to create a personalized issue, including regionalized content and advertising.“The consumer will now be in charge of the content that they want,” says Cann. “That allows us to be very targeted with their advertising, by knowing the content that they want to pull. This is important in terms of seeing what the future is and our ability to develop our business further.” Cann expects this capability, along with the interactive features made possible through HTML5 technology, will accelerate digital revenues—already up 100 percent year-on-year for the past five, with digital editions comprising 80 percent. According to Cann, a 100-page magazine may take 15-20 minutes to embed into the tool. He says, “You don’t need to have a technical expert to use this software. We’ve home grown our skills. We didn’t go out and find a developer, we had someone internally who had an interest in this area.” The software can be licensed for $449 and is available for a 30-day trial. By now it’s become clear that HTML5 warrants serious consideration among magazine publishers hoping to keep pace with the vast changes in the way audiences consume media. Those trying to stay or break ahead of the curve have already taken steps, large and small, toward its adoption. But for many publishers, implementation of the standard—still under development—poses a serious burden to staffs who may not have the necessary resources or training to invest in the switch.In light of these concerns, digital publishing software 3D Issue has released its version five, which promises to deliver all the features of Flash—hyperlinks, videos, sound—by converting PDFs into HTML5 digital editions that can be read on any desktop, tablet or mobile device “all in one go,” without the need for readers to scroll or zoom.“All you have to do is select the devices you want to output your publications to and click publish,” says Paul Mc Nulty, managing director of 3D Issue.Version five also includes a tool called PressJack, which allows publishers to create a digital magazine by pulling content from their web pages, blogs, and RSS feeds into a digital magazine. Mc Nulty says the PressJack is the first tool on the market to bring the “maggregator” technology—as used by apps such as FlipBoard, Zite or OnSwipe—beyond the iPad and into a publisher’s control. While this component of version five is still based in Flash, Mc Nulty says the tool will be HTML5-enabled by March 1. last_img read more

Court Rebuffs Neighbors Complaints over Noise from Navy Growlers at Washington Base

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A federal judge this week refused to grant an injunction sought by residents in northwest Washington state to suspend flights of EA-18G Growler aircraft based at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island to an outlying landing field (OLF) to practice takeoffs and landings.The neighbors complained that the flights to OLF Coupeville, which resumed early last year following a temporary moratorium, were causing serious health effects due to noise. U.S. District Judge Thomas Zilly, however, ruled that the group of residents known as Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve for a Healthy, Safe and Peaceful Environment failed to show that overflights by the Navy’s newest electronic-warfare aircraft were significantly louder than described in a 2005 environmental assessment, reported the Seattle Times.The Coupeville residents originally filed a federal lawsuit in July 2013 arguing the Navy should have performed a comprehensive environmental impact statement in 2005 rather than a less detailed environmental assessment before allowing the Growlers to train at OLF Coupeville. The assessment was triggered by the Navy’s transition from the older EA-6G Prowler to the Growler.The judge’s Aug. 11 order noted the Navy has agreed to prepare a new environmental assessment based on the group’s claims that the noise from training flights at OLF Coupeville is making their lives unbearable.The EA-18G Growlers, used to suppress enemy radar, are a prominent part of the Navy’s mission at Whidbey Island. Currently, 82 Growlers are based there, a numbers that could rise to 118 as the older Prowlers are replaced, according to the story.last_img read more

Columbus Residents Ponder Ways to Lessen Dependency on Ft Benning

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Leaders and other stakeholders from Columbus, Ga., participated in two public workshops last week to discuss the likely impact of the loss of Fort Benning’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division.The post originally had been projected to lose 3,402 soldiers but the figure now is closer to 2,800. About 1,050 soldiers left in December, with the remaining 1,750 slated to leave by the end of July. The cuts are part of the Army’s latest restructuring, which will shrink its active-duty end strength from 490,000 to 450,000 by the end of fiscal 2018.Attendees at the session on Thursday agreed that one strategy the Chattahoochee Valley should adopt in response to the changes is to find ways to retain separating service members, reported WTVM.The community needs to dedicate resources to workforce training for veterans, said Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson. Convincing veterans to remain in the region should prompt the federal government to continue to invest in the Chattahoochee Valley area, Tomlinson said.“We have state-of-the-art facilities, we have excess capacity, room for growth,” she said. “As other bases are having to close because they’re obsolete, why don’t they come on to Fort Benning?”Matrix Design Group hosted the workshops for a study about the economic impacts of the cutbacks at Fort Benning. The study, primarily funded by DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment, also will consider strategies for diversifying the valley’s economy.“The community really needs to figure out what else it can do to lead job creation and other things to make this a vibrant community,” said Sal Nodjomian, executive vice president of Matrix.last_img read more

John Hickenlooper (D), told the Gazette. … Military Times has created a searchable database of drinking water systems and monitoring wells located both on- and off-base where elevated levels of the contaminants PFOA and PFOS have been detected. The database relies on data from DOD, which previously reported that drinking water systems at 36 installations tested above EPA guidelines, and 90 installations recorded elevated contaminant levels in the groundwater at either on- or off-base locations. Remedial actions carried out by DOD could take up to a decade or more to complete, Maureen Sullivan, deputy assistant secretary of defense for environment, safety and occupational health, told Military Times.Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Caitlin Russelllast_img read more
