first_imgBY SUSAN L. CONLU, T-III – Jagnaya National High School Even though, if the situation had lightened, educational institutions should be more adaptive to the pandemic forces. Thus, new methods of teaching should be imposed along with new accessible platforms.(Contributed article) But not every student has access to computer that can be used to learn remotely. That’s where the problem lies. If the situation with coronavirus had yet to be resolved, normal schooling will be postponed again. AS the world struggles to combat the coronavirus pandemic, many organizations have been put at a standstill. Businesses were stopped, travel was restricted and education was discontinued.center_img That leaves us thinking about the alternatives to education. In the advent of newer, more accessible technology, the first thing that would come to mind is using e-learning. Governments obviously need to find ways to handle students’ continuous learning in the midst of the pandemic. However, face-to-face interaction is extremely unlikely due to the rapid spread of the illness.last_img read more

first_img Justice looked to have been done when Ben Foster guessed right to block Nikica Jelavic’s penalty – only to flap the ball straight at a grateful Liam Rosenior, who headed home his first senior goal since October 2009. With Long also coming close when he lashed a long-range effort against the post in the second half, the increasingly nervous visitors were left to reflect on how much brighter their season might have been if the Ireland international had still been wearing black and white stripes. Those two goals in eight first-half minutes shattered the mood of cautious optimism which had hung over the Baggies after boss Pepe Mel eased some of the pressure with his first win in charge at Swansea last week. The opening period promised much, with Stephane Sessegnon firing a first minute effort over the bar before the visiting supporters staged a minute’s silence in honour of their former striker Jeff Astle, whose family this week launched a ‘Justice For Jeff’ campaign, calling on the FA to launch research into the effects of heading leather footballs. The hosts belatedly stirred, Davies hitting a goal-bound effort in the 16th minute which clattered the legs of Youssouf Mulumbu, but the visitors were still threatening with swift counter-attacks and Graeme Dorrans came closer two minutes later with a swinging volley which was well saved by Tigers keeper Allan McGregor. Davies denied Victor Anichebe with a crucial saving challenge in the box as Mel’s men continued to look more likely to break the deadlock, but the momentum changed in a 10-minute period starting just before the half-hour mark in which the Tigers wrested total control. First David Meyler sent a header from a Tom Huddlestone corner inches wide of Foster’s upright before Long crumbled under Dawson’s challenge in the box and won a penalty from referee Chris Foy. Video replays suggested the decision was harsh and justice looked set to be served after Jelavic’s poor penalty, but Rosenior was in the right place at the right time to open the scoring. Press Association Huddlestone fired a long-range rocket eight minutes later which was superbly tipped over the bar by Foster, before Long made it 2-0 in the 38th minute when Jake Livermore’s long ball into the box was flicked into his path by Davies. In a low-key second period, Jelavic flashed a low shot just wide from a Sone Aluko cross but the hosts were warned against complacency when McGregor had to be alert to block Anichebe’s powerful header, Long almost increased his former club’s torment on 67 minutes when he picked up a cross-field pass from substitute Robert Koren and curled a right-foot effort from long range which came back off Foster’s right-hand post. As a filthy rainstorm closed in on the KC Stadium, Long’s productive day against his former club came to a premature end in the 77th minute when he limped to the touchline and was replaced by Stephen Quinn. But by that point his job was done. Shane Long might think twice about dropping in on old friends in West Bromwich any time soon after masterminding his former club’s retreat back into the relegation mire at a rain-lashed KC Stadium on Saturday. Long lifted his new club Hull to the brink of safety by winning the controversial first-half penalty which led to their opening goal, then turning in a Curtis Davies’ flick-on seven minutes before the break to seal a solid 2-0 win for the Tigers. Long, who scored 22 goals in 87 appearances for West Brom before his surprise sale in January, was barracked mercilessly by the massed ranks of visiting fans for his part in the penalty incident, in which former team-mate Craig Dawson appeared to make minimal contact. last_img read more

Consider donating today to support our mission.Eric Devendorf abandoned the 2-3 zone as the ball flew from the corner to mid-court. Moments before it landed in the hands of a Men of Mackey player, Devendorf swatted the ball away and corralled it with his right hand.With another Men of Mackey player barreling toward him, Devendorf passed in transition to John Gillon, who completed the give-and-go for an easy layup.In its 76-69 win over Men of Mackey, Boeheim’s Army abandoned its strength – 3-point shooting – and instead focused on scoring in the paint to advance in The Basketball Tournament. Devendorf led BA with 20 points, shooting 9-for-14 from the field to go along with three steals. Three other players joined him in double-digits. Boeheim’s Army forced 18 Mackey turnovers to help build its first-half lead that withstood the Purdue alumni roster’s comeback in the second half.“When (Devendorf’s) 50 years old, he’s still going to be competitive in the gym, at the Y,” Boeheim’s Army head coach Ryan Blackwell said. “Getting texts at 50 years old with his kids saying, ‘What’s wrong with my dad?’”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe win, Boeheim’s Army’s first, is one of four needed for the $1 million grand prize in a TBT operating differently than it has in past years. All games will be played in Columbus, Ohio, rather than in arenas across the country — including in Syracuse, where BA was supposed to host a regional for the second consecutive year. Players are expected to stay inside a hotel at all times, quarantine on their own floor and only see opponents during games.TBT is one of the first live sporting events to return after professional and collegiate games were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it serves as an experimental basketball bubble before the NBA implements a significantly larger event in Orlando for its restart. Boeheim’s Army players needed to test negative for COVID-19 twice before arriving for TBT and will be subject to five total tests by the tournament’s end.In between those tests, those Zoom calls with nurses and Vault Health kits, are practices and games. Boeheim’s Army lost its minicamp that usually precedes TBT and had few training options before the tournament once gyms shut down.To compensate, Devendorf called Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim and asked if he could “sneak through that side door” and work out in his basement. A lack of minicamp also meant the team didn’t have the opportunity to bond before the tournament, so BA played card games such as Tonk before its first game as a substitute. Big man Donte Greene said he was “plotting” those card games before arriving in Columbus. Before its first game, BA teammates admitted Greene was the best card player.Isaac Haas scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds for Men of Mackey against Boeheim’s Army, helping key a second-half comeback that ultimately fell short. Courtesy of Ben SolomonOn the court Tuesday, Greene was tasked with guarding 7-foot-3 center Isaac Haas — the tallest player he’d ever faced besides 7-foot-6 Yao Ming. Haas finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, including four offensive rebounds. In one first quarter sequence, Men of Mackey grabbed six consecutive offensive rebounds before Malachi Richardson committed a foul. Brandon Triche scored four of Boeheim’s Army’s first six points, while Men of Mackey head coach Ryne Smith tried capitalizing on height in the paint. As the game continued, Men of Mackey emphasized Haas even more, closing Boeheim’s Army’s lead and forcing Greene into committing five fouls. While Men of Mackey attacked the paint, Boeheim’s Army shot more 3-pointers, which continued to clank off the rim. In the third quarter, Haas received a pass on the low block, spun to the left away from defender Will Rayman and was fouled on a layup attempt. He then calmly knocked down both free throws. Soon after, Men of Mackey briefly took the lead for the first time since the first quarter.“It’s pros out here,” Greene said. “It’s not a slouch tournament at all, everyone here can play.”Midway through the fourth quarter, momentum slowly swung back in Boeheim’s Army’s favor. With the game tied 58-58, Triche drove to the left side of the hoop, spun right, away from his defender, and finished the uncontested layup.While BA shot less than 20% from behind the arc, it converted 28-of-32 free throws. After collecting a defensive rebound with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter, BA’s Rayman was fouled and hit both free throws to take a 68-63 lead. But Men of Mackey’s comeback continued as it cut Boeheim’s Army’s lead to two, 68-66, before the Elam Ending began. But Devendorf, a constant on every Boeheim’s Army team, scored the first basket to give BA a 70-66 lead — six points away from the target score of 76. After the 2-3 zone forced a Men of Mackey turnover, Smith called a timeout for Men of Mackey, but Andrew White hit an open mid-range 2, followed by a Richardson made free throw.After a missed jumper on the next Men of Mackey possession, Boeheim’s Army raced up the court in transition offense, which scored 13 points off turnovers. Greene passed up a potential game winning three and Haas inside for a layup. “We wanted to make him move them big feet, man, that’s a big boy, 7-foot-3, 300 pounds,” Greene said of Haas. “So we had to bring him to the perimeter and get him moving.”Boeheim’s Army’s altered strategy was working. Meanwhile, Men of Mackey tried to use the same game plan that had been productive through the and tournament: Pass the ball to Haas in the paint.Haas caught the ball with his team on the brink of elimination and began to back down Greene. The former Syracuse big then poked the ball out of Haas’ hands, Men of Mackey’s 18th turnover of the game. Greene said after the game that since he turned pro, he’d honed his defensive craft.That allowed a full-court pass to Triche, sprinting down court and drawing a foul. The winningest Syracuse basketball player then walked to the foul line and clinched the game with a free-throw winner.“He probably outweighed me by at least 50, 6o pounds and he’s three or four inches taller than me,” Greene said of Haas. “When he brings the ball down I try to take advantage of him. You know I have some quick hands, I think Boeheim would be proud of me.”last_img read more
