Ad with mayor helps boost local economy

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In defense of the recent ad with Mayor McCarthy, Billy Fuccillo and two show girls, I have to say this ad is an economics-driven ad with show girls used to draw your attention.Both the car dealer and casino are important economic generators, and if the show girls are so tasteless, I suggest you personally forgo visiting either place. But to publicly call out the mayor for contributing to our economy is disheartening.Mike FuscoSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashlast_img

Three takeaways from Penn’s Big 5 win over Villanova

first_imgThe Wildcats began what became a 25-game winning streak on Dec. 5, 2012, by defeating Penn, and won five consecutive outright City Series championships over Penn, Temple, La Salle and Saint Joseph’s. Oh, yeah, and a couple of national titles along the way, too.But on Tuesday night at a packed Palestra, Penn ended Villanova’s singular run while breaking a 15-game losing streak to the Wildcats.Thus, the wild, court-storming scene when the deal was sealed.Court storming at The Palestra! @PennBasketball pic.twitter.com/UGOE2qUCEr— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) December 12, 2018Here are three takeaways from Penn’s Big 5 win over 2018 national champion Villanova:1. Call it an upset, but don’t call it a fluke.”Penn beating Villanova wasn’t a fluke, it was (Quakers coach) Steve Donahue’s strategy executed effectively,” Philly.com’s headline summed up things.In short, Penn used tight defense, a significant rebounding advantage and balanced scoring while the Quakers matched the Wildcats’ trademark grit and determination.“Look what Villanova has done,’’ Donahue said later, his reading glasses broken during the celebration in his own locker room. “I thought about it today. They’ve literally won two of the last three national championships. I never imagined that could ever happen. That’s what makes the Big 5, this win, special — what they’ve accomplished. I thought (Villanova) played out of their minds. It wasn’t like they laid an egg.”Countered Villanova coach Jay Wright: “(Penn) did a really good job defensively, really physical, well-coached, very disciplined.”Donahue, who led Cornell to the Sweet 16 in 2010, may have another blooming Ivy League power in the 9-2 Quakers.2. This isn’t the Villanova of recent seasonsIf not for their recent championship pedigree, the No. 17 Wildcats (8-3), who have been solid but hardly spectacular, may have been outside the Top 25.They fell out of the poll for a week after consecutive home losses to Michigan and Furman (Furman?). But they had won six straight and bulked up their record in the City Series with wins over La Salle, Temple and Saint Joe’s.Sure, you can say there are a lot of players who’ve moved on from the Wildcats’ two national championships over the past three seasons, but it’s not like the cupboard is bare.Penn’s student section — waving “There’s No Fear Here” signs — started rocking the Palestra bleachers with minutes left, and the Quakers avoided a late scare to deliver the latest memorable moment in the Big 5.“It was nice while it lasted,” Wright said of The Streak (via The Associated Press). “We learn from it. It was fun to be a part of it.”Final from The Palestra. pic.twitter.com/PfX1v8Dj5h— Villanova MBB (@NovaMBB) December 12, 20183. This is what the Big 5 is all aboutTwo things: First, Villanova’s 25 consecutive wins in the Big 5 likely won’t be broken, given the nature of college basketball today. And second, that’s a special streak, but this is an extraordinary intracity series among five schools. OK, so the Wildcats don’t look like national title contenders right now — and may never this season. (They trailed in three of their four Big 5 games over the past 10 days.)But on this night, when bedlam broke loose after Penn clinched the victory, this was Big 5 basketball at its best.“We sell the Big 5, we sell what you saw tonight,’’ Donahue said. “For them to live that out, and come out victorious, in that environment — they’ll never forget that night.”Waking up this morning as the city’s cover boys! 🙌🔴🔵 pic.twitter.com/5iYz13ZjSk— Penn Basketball (@PennBasketball) December 12, 2018 Penn 78, Villanova 75 … but hooboy.It had been more than six years since Villanova had lost a game in Philadelphia’s unique Big 5 series.last_img read more

Asmir Begovic comments on the possible Transfer

first_imgAsmir Begovic, the national football BiH team player and a goalkeeper once again said that he wants to play, that he is ready to give up potential medal conquered in the Premier League and that he could go to play in Bournemouth.FC Chelsea will not let go Begovic to go to play for another club before they find another goalkeeper.Begovic defended very well in the 4: 0 victory in the FA Cup against Brentford, and the question is whether this is his last match for Chelsea, said: “I find it hard not to play for so long, and I’d love to go. If my club decides to let me go, I will do so.“If I do not leave the club, I will continue to support the team. My desire to leave is solely associated with my desire to play. I do not work for a long time with Conte, but our relationship is good, it is open. He knows that I want to play. Of course, I expected I’m going to be able to compete with Courtois, and the opportunity to play for Chelsea is not given every day. If you do not believe in yourself, you do not need play football. It turned out that I did not defend as much as I wanted, but Thibaut is absolutely brilliant. Yes, I knew that he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and I just wanted to compete with him. I feel that I am also one of the best, but unfortunately no club is big enough to have two top goalkeepers. I’m an excellent goalkeeper, I feel great, I am 29 years old. I am in a good shape, it is pity that I cannot show what I can, “said Begovic.“I hope that Chelsea will be champion, I’m part of that, but it’s more important that I play,” he added.(Source: N1)last_img read more

Award for golf volunteer James Drury

first_img Teenage golf volunteer James Drury is putting something back into the sport he loves. The 18 year-old has clocked up more than 50 hours of his free time helping out at Gaudet Luce Golf Club in Worcestershire and his achievement has been recognised with a certificate and pin badge from England Golf. As well as supporting the work of PGA professional Russell Adams in running coaching sessions, the Droitwich Spa High School pupil has been helping younger members of the club make their mark. He has also been helping out at special sessions to help blind people get into golf by acting as a mentor. James said: “I started playing golf when I was 12 as my brother had just started and after my first lesson I came away thinking this is what I want to do. Both my parents also play, including my mum who only recently took up the sport. “Russell has been very supportive of me joining in on the coaching side. I have helped out with New2Golf practice evenings on the range, blind golf coaching sessions by pairing up with a blind person and their guide on the par 3 course, as well as girls’ county coaching sessions – Russell is the girls’ county coach. “I’ve also helped some younger members achieve their handicaps by completing handicap cards for them. I want to try and give them the feeling I got when I first started, which I can’t value any higher.” James is a member of the England Youth Panel, adding: “I was excited to be selected as it is a great opportunity to discuss ways in which we can encourage more young people to get into golf.” James’s ambition is to work in the golf industry, adding: “I’m working on getting my handicap down to four and studying for my A levels with the hope that one day I may be able to complete a golf degree and work within the industry.” He would recommend golf to people of all ages, saying: “I would encourage everyone to take up golf as it’s an incredibly rewarding sport with a very good social side, which means making new friends is easy. “I was very lucky when I first started as my local club is very accommodating and welcoming to every one of all ages and abilities. Russell and his team of coaches have a fantastic knowledge and were able to provide quality coaching to give me a perfect footing in the game, but with the priority being on fun and enjoying golf.” Mark Laing, development officer for the Worcestershire Golf Development Group, says: “James should be congratulated for the time and effort he has put back into the sport. “Volunteers are the lifeblood of many clubs and organisations and the hours of unpaid work they undertake are vital to the well-being of the sport. “They carry out that work without looking for recognition for their efforts, but it is nice once in a while to pay tribute and say thanks for everything they contribute to the golfing world.” 23 Sep 2015 Award for golf volunteer James Drury last_img read more
