Bulldogs Regional Wrestling Results

first_imgThe Batesville Bulldogs sent two wrestlers to participate in the Regionals at Richmond on February 4th.  Senior Micahel Deal in the 126 lb class and Freshman JT Linkel in the 132 lb class.This was Deal’s third appearance at the Richmond Regionals.  He started his day off against sophomore  Danny Clark of Centerville.  Deal took control of this match early on by pinning his opponent in 58 seconds of the first period giving him his 18th pin of the year.  Deal then faced off against Dallas Pugsley of Shanendoah where he fell short to the eventual Regional champ by pin.  This loss moved Deal to the consolidation round where he ended the day in 4th place after losing to Garrett Walton of South Dearborn.  The 4th place finish is not we hoped for but is still enough to advance the senior to a 2nd appearance at semi-state next weekend at New Castle.In his first appearance at The Regionals, Linkel faced off against Elijah Phillips, a Junior from Centerville high school.  Linkel approached this match like he has all his matches this season by wrestling to the end without giving up a pin. The Batesville freshman did all he could before falling to Phillips by a 17-2 decision. This loss ended the freshman’s year but he was able to take away a great experience that will help next year.  Linkel ended the season with a great record of 28 wins and 12 losses.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Chris Deal.last_img read more

John Carver to remain at Newcastle

first_img The 50-year-old is still searching for his first win since assuming the role in a caretaker capacity in the wake of Alan Pardew’s departure. Carver will now get a chance to stake a claim for the job on a longer term basis after the Magpies’ hopes of a quick appointment were met with frustration. Carver, who had made no secret of his desire to be appointed on a permanent basis, said: “This is a proud day for me. “I have worked with, and learnt from, the best manager that this football club has had in Sir Bobby Robson. I know what this club means to this city and its people. I believe in my players and the staff I have around me. “I am confident that we can deliver exciting successful football and look forward with relish to my role as head coach of this great football club.” Newcastle managing director Lee Charnley admitted the club’s desire desire to appoint an immediate successor to Pardew had been met with frustration. Charnley said: “At the beginning of this process it was my desire and intention to appoint an individual to the position of head coach who would be available to start immediately. “Having now explored at some length the options available to us at this time, the decision has been taken to defer the appointment of a permanent head coach until the end of the season. “The head coach will be a long-term appointment that will play a major role in shaping the future on-field progression of Newcastle United and it is vitally important that we get the right individual. “John has a long history with the club and has the full support of the board. Our goal for the season of a minimum top ten finish remains unchanged and we are confident that John, supported by the backroom staff, will be able to deliver this.” Newcastle have confirmed John Carver has been appointed head coach for the rest of the season. Press Association Many of those at the top of the Magpies’ short-list are either currently in employment or otherwise unavailable until the end of the season. They include Derby boss Steve McClaren, whose odds are once again shortening despite him earlier having ruled himself out of the running for the job. Ajax boss Frank de Boer, Christophe Galtier at St Etienne and Lyon’s Remi Garde are also considered front-runners in the race to replace Pardew. Carver had made no secret of his desire to be handed the job on a permanent basis but would appear to need a significant improvement in the last 16 games of the season to stand a realistic chance of extending his reign at St James’s Park beyond May. In his first game in charge on New Year’s Day, the Magpies lost the lead three times to draw 3-3 at home to Burnley, and they have lost all three subsequent matches under Carver. They included an FA Cup third round exit at Leicester, after which Carver was roundly criticised for his team selection, although he insisted a host of top stars had been laid low by minor injuries. last_img read more

Rotator cuff problems

first_imgFeeling pain in your shoulder when you lift your arm over your head may mean you have a have a problem with your rotator cuff.So, what causes rotator cuff problems? The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that attach to the bones of your shoulder joint. The group allows your shoulder to move and keeps it stable. Pain in your rotator cuff area usually means you have rotator cuff tendinitis, or inflammation of these tendons and inflammation of the bursa, (smooth slippery sacs the tendons glide across); or a rotator cuff tear, when one the tendons is torn from overuse or injury.Rotator cuff tendinitis may be due to keeping your arm in the same position for long periods of time, such as doing computer work or hairstyling. Sleeping on the same arm each night can also cause this problem. You can also get tendinitis playing sports that require you to move your arm over your head repeatedly, such as in tennis, baseball (especially pitching), swimming, and weight-lifting.Rotator cuff tears may happen if you fall on your arm while it is stretched out, or after a sudden, jerking motion when trying to lift something heavy. Chronic tears occur slowly over time, particularly in people who have chronic tendinitis. At some point, the tendon wears down and starts to tear.If you have tendinitis, youll have pain when you lift your arm over your head, such as when you brush your hair and reach for objects on shelves. The pain may be mild at first, but over time you may have pain at rest or at night, especially when you lie on your shoulder.advertisementThe pain of a sudden rotator cuff tear can be intense. Your shoulder may be weak, and you may hear a snapping sound when you move your shoulder. Chronic symptoms include a gradual worsening of pain, weakness, stiffness or loss of motion. Most people with rotator cuff tears have worse pain at night and when they wake up.To treat your rotator cuff problem, your doctor will check your shoulder for tenderness and lift your arm to see in which position you have pain. X-rays may show a bone spur (a bony projection). If your doctor thinks you have a tear, you may have an ultrasound or MRI.Treatment for rotator cuff tendinitis involves resting your shoulder and avoiding the activities that cause you pain. You can also try applying ice packs 20 minutes at a time, 3 or 4 times a day. Medicines like ibuprofen may help reduce swelling and inflammation. Eventually, you should start physical therapy to learn to stretch and strengthen the muscles of your shoulder. Surgery can remove inflamed tissue and part of the bone that lies over the rotator cuff, which may help relieve the pressure on your tendons.Someone with a partial rotator cuff tear can try rest and exercise, if they dont normally put a lot of demand on their shoulder. But if theres a complete tear, or if the symptoms dont improve with therapy, you may need surgery to repair the tendon.But with rest or exercise, symptoms of most shoulder problems often improve or go away, though it may take months.Review Date:11/23/2011Reviewed By:Alan Greene, MD, Author and Practicing Pediatrician; also reviewed by David Zieve, MD, MHA, Medical Director, A.D.A.M., Inc.last_img read more

Greater Toronto Area realtors can now publish home sales data on their

first_imgTORONTO – The Supreme Court of Canada’s refusal to hear an appeal from the country’s largest real estate board enables its member real estate agents to publish home sales data on their websites, setting a precedent that could usher in a new era of transparency for home buyers and sellers nationwide, industry experts said Thursday.Canada’s top court announced Thursday it has dismissed the application from the Toronto Real Estate Board, which represents more than 50,000 Ontario agents, ending a years-long battle.The fight centred around a 2011 application from the Competition Bureau, a federal watchdog designed to protect consumers by investigating business policies and mergers, challenging the Toronto Real Estate Board’s policy preventing the publication of such information on password-protected websites, arguing the policy restricts competition and digital innovation.TREB fought back claiming the publication of such data was a privacy and copyright concern, but the Competition Tribunal and later the Federal Court of Appeal sided with the bureau instead, so TREB took its battle to the Supreme Court.The top court’s refusal to hear the case is significant because it was likely TREB’s last chance to prevent the publication of the data. It is a sign of hope for realtors in regions across the country who want to open up data to their clients, real estate experts said.“A lot of these local real estate boards were waiting to see what happened with this decision,” said John Andrew, a real estate professor at Queen’s University.“That’s going to spread to others boards across Canada. They are no longer going to try to resist this kind of demand from their own members who would like to release this kind of information and other kinds.”He’s anticipating a flood of realtors will race to post data in 60 days when required under the Competition Tribunal’s order. That will allow buyers and sellers to more easily educate themselves on how to price homes and negotiate, keeping them from relying on agents to send them sales information.However, Andrew doesn’t think that giving the public an easier route to finding out what homes sold for will jeopardize the livelihood of realtors or significantly change the market.Christopher Alexander, the executive vice-president and regional director of RE/MAX Integra’s Ontario-Atlantic business, agreed.Both said they don’t believe the decision will be an industry killer based on their observations of the United States housing market, where real estate agents remained in demand even after a similar case enabled consumers to access enhanced information for the last 13 years.“Good, experienced realtors are a lot more valuable than having sold information,” said Alexander.Those currently seeking sold information predominantly turn to real estate agents and brokers, who have access to the Multiple Listing Service database, where sales data is compiled when deals close. Others rely on online property value services like Teranet or local land registry offices, which charge a fee for the public to access sales data.The TREB case largely dealt with allowing publication of the data through virtual office websites (VOWs), which are password-protected and are usually open to a realtor’s clients or people who subscribe to their website.Now that publication will be allowed through those sites, Andrew believes the market will see a push for realtors and other companies to be able to publish the data online without using VOWs.Interim Competition Bureau commissioner Matthew Boswell refused to speculate on whether the country will see a new fight to allow publication outside of VOWs, but said he knows real estate boards across the country were watching the case.“This is their opportunity to look at their policies and procedures and make sure they are in compliance with the Competition Act, that they are not abusing their dominant position in their respective markets as TREB was found to have done in this case,” he told The Canadian Press.Boswell said he considered the Supreme Court’s choice not to hear the case as “a decisive victory for competition, innovation and for consumers.”TREB chief executive officer John DiMichele said he “respects the decision” and noted that the board will be studying “the required next steps to ensure such information will be protected in compliance with the tribunal order,” which he noted will come into effect in 60 days if it is not modified.The Canadian Real Estate Association, which represents 125,000 realtors across the country, was also reviewing the order to determine its potential impacts.Neither immediately said whether they were looking for a way to change the order.Follow @Tara_Deschamps on Twitter.last_img read more
