Lighty teaches Patriots a lesson after graduatingLighty teaches Patriots a lesson after graduating

CLEVELAND — First, cover Jared Sullinger; second, Jon Diebler. That was No. 8 seed George Mason’s plan, heading into its third-round matchup against No. 1 seed Ohio State. It didn’t work. OSU forward David Lighty, who GMU was praying would have an off night, ended up with a record-setting performance in his final collegiate matchup in his hometown. The future looked dim for the Buckeyes after they fell behind George Mason, 11-2, less than four minutes in. But then, after missing three of their first four shots, the Buckeyes came alive. They connected on eight of their next 10 field goal attempts, including four 3-pointers from Lighty, to take a 24-18 lead about midway through the first half. “Lighty was on fire,” GMU forward Ryan Pearson said. “He just didn’t miss.” OSU’s relentless offense continued, as it entered halftime on a 50-15 run, doubling the Patriots’ score. Lighty, a Cleveland native, led that run with 17 points on 6-for-7 shooting, including a perfect 5-of-5 from beyond the arc. Lighty, who graduated before the matchup, ended the game on 100 percent shooting from deep, connecting on all seven 3-point attempts. His performance was the best single-tournament-game 3-point shooting without a miss in program history. “My teammates did a good job of finding me,” Lighty said. “They did spot me and gave me room to knock down shots.” OSU coach Thad Matta said he’s witnessed Lighty evolve as a player over the years. “You go back to his freshman year, I remember he made a three at North Carolina. Then he went like three months without making one,” Matta said. “For me to see the progression that he’s made as a player … I’m just excited for him.” But the fifth-year forward wasn’t the only Buckeye hitting threes that night. Diebler and junior guard William Buford added four 3-pointers apiece on 4-for-8 and 4-for-7 shooting from deep, respectively. “Every time I looked up, everybody was hitting a jumper or a three or something,” Lighty said. “Everyone was clicking on high cylinders tonight. And when that’s happening, it’s pretty hard to beat us.” The Buckeyes broke single-game program records in NCAA Tournament games for number of 3-pointers made, and 3-point shooting percentage, sinking 16 from deep on 61.5 percent shooting. They set the previous 3-point record at 12 in their win against Texas-San Antonio on Friday. Freshman point guard Aaron Craft led OSU in assists with 15, a career high for him and single-game record for a Buckeye. But, as Lighty attributed his shooting performance to his teammates’ ball placement, Craft deferred the praise to OSU’s offense. “Like most of the assists today, I mean, they knocked down threes for me,” Craft said. “That’s basically how it happened.” Every single player on OSU’s roster put up points against the Patriots on Sunday, including senior walk-on guard Eddie Days, who recorded his first and only point of his career on a free throw with 1:17 to play. “I’m so happy for Eddie and what he’s meant to this team,” Matta said. The Buckeyes (34-2) will proceed to the Sweet 16 in Newark, N.J., where they will tip off against fourth-seeded Kentucky (27-8) at 9:30 p.m. Friday. OSU proved against the Patriots that, in order to beat the Buckeyes, a team can’t focus all of its defense on two players and hope the others do poorly. “We have so many weapons,” Lighty said. “The defense pretty much has to pick their poison.” read more

Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorIf the Ohio State Buckeyes felt any added pressure to recently becoming one of the top-ranked teams in the country, they certainly did not show it against Bryant University.The No. 3 Buckeyes (9-0, 0-0), led by a stellar effort from senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr., dominated Bryant (6-5, 0-0) from start to finish, winning 86-48 Wednesday at the Schottenstein Center.“That was one of the things we talked about in shootaround and really coming out of the Central Connecticut State game. Trying to sustain intensity, trying to sustain effort, keep the focus on the things we need to get better at,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after the win. “I thought we did a pretty decent job with that.”Smith Jr. opened the contest by swooping to the hoop for a score on the game’s first possession, and he — and his team — never looked back.Solid ball movement, timely shooting and an advantage in size against the Bulldogs allowed OSU to shoot 53.6 percent from the field in the first half, as Smith Jr. scored 12 points in the opening 20 minutes to help his team to a 43-23 lead at the break.“As a senior, I put a lot of work into my game offensively over the summer and my confidence is off the chart,” Smith Jr. said after the win. “My teammates are able to find me wide open. A lot of teams, for some reason, teams are helping off of me and I’m able to get great looks at the basket.”Matta said he thinks the senior is “playing at a very, very high level” so far this season.“He’s a really good demeanor about him in terms of being a senior and knowing that this is kind of (his) last crack at it,” Matta said. “I love the way he’s playing right now … the fact that he’s shooting the ball the way he is makes us a better basketball team.”Each of the 10 players who saw action Wednesday night scored, as Smith Jr. and junior center Amir Williams led the way with 19 and 12 points, respectively. The Buckeyes finished shooting 52.5 percent for the game, including 40 percent from three.“We’re making great finds, we’re reading each other, we have great guards on the perimeter,” Smith Jr. said about the offensive output. “We’re able to attack the defense on every side and penetrate and kick the ball out. Our offensive shooting has increased over these past three or four games. We just want to keep rolling.”Bryant coach Tim O’Shea was not short of good things to say about OSU after the game, stating that the Buckeye team has the potential to contend for the national title.“We’re a good team, we’re going to contend for a championship in our league. They’re going to contend for a national championship,” O’Shea said. “Just athletically, they’re an extraordinary bunch … This is the best of the best. There are few teams in the country that’ll contend for the national championship legitimately and Ohio State is one of them.”The final player to enter the game for the Buckeyes was junior forward Jake Lorbach, a walk-on who hit all three shots he took from the field, punctuated by a breakaway dunk that brought a multitude of cheers from his teammates on the bench.“He works on those moves all the time in practice so we weren’t surprised when he made those shots,” junior center Amir Williams said about Lorbach after the game, then raising his hand jokingly after he and Smith Jr. were asked if they were worried about losing their starting spots. “He did look good. I got to take lessons from him from now on.”Even Matta was impressed with Lorbach’s efforts.“I’m happy for Jake, the ball went in for him. He’s been in this program now for a year and a half. Every single day he comes in, he works. Those moves that he made, he’s working them every single day,” Matta said. “That is exciting for him and it’s exciting for the guys because they know how hard he works.”From the starting five all the way to the end of the bench, the Buckeyes took care of business Wednesday.“For our guys, they had great respect for Bryant and knowing the caliber of basketball team they are. I thought we did a good job of sticking with the focus that we needed to,” Matta said.OSU is next scheduled to take on North Dakota State Saturday at 8:15 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

World Cup More than 1200 UK football hooligans blocked from flying toWorld Cup More than 1200 UK football hooligans blocked from flying to

Football banning orders lasting up to 10 years aim to stop hooligans travelling to international fixtures and if breached can lead to a fine of up to £5,000 and a six-month jail term.Officials will be keen to avoid a repeat of scenes at Euro 2016 in France, when England fans were involved in violent clashes, including with Russia supporters.Around 10,000 fans are expected to travel from the UK to Russia in the coming days, with each required to have a unique fan number allowing them access to the games.There is a large police presence in parts of Moscow, with airport-style scanners and searches in operation around Luzhniki Stadium ahead of kick off.Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts, the UK’s national lead for football policing, said: “Ahead of the World Cup, a comprehensive policing operation has been in place across the country to account for passports of those on banning orders, which has once again seen only a handful of those outstanding.“The legislation used for banning orders is the most effective of its kind, and affords us the ability to ensure the vast majority of England supporters travelling to Russia are genuine fans who simply want to enjoy the tournament.” “The UK’s system of football banning orders is unique and means that people intent on causing trouble in Russia will instead be staying at home.” Mr Grindel, who was in Moscow for the Fifa Congress which on Wednesday awarded the 2026 World Cup to a joint bid from Canada, Mexico and the US, suggested the British government’s boycott of the World Cup was “unwise”.Officials from the English FA and British Government and Royal Family are not expected to be present, following the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in March. The warnings come after the head of the German football association said the German secret service had identified threats from terrorist groups intent on attacking the tournament. Metal detectors and security presence near the entrance to Red Square, Moscow But Mr Grindel said: “If you play in Russia, this is not similar to supporting everything Mr (Vladimir) Putin is politically doing, but the point is to build bridges between the civil societies.” Reinhard Grindel, president of the DFB, admitted there was no guarantee fans would be safe from the threat from a lone-wolf extremist.He said: “We know from our secret service there a lot of videos from different terrorist groups which say they want to do something during the World Cup and they request their followers to do actions.”I think the security administration is so good that groups who were active will be seen and they will prevent a big terror act, but you can never, ever, say it is impossible for a lonesome terrorist to make something.He added: “It is clear that in a country like Russia you need security and it’s in our interest, in the interests of our team, of our fans to have security. On the other hand it should not be so much that it overloads everything so we must find a wise, middle way.” Metal detectors and security near the entrance to Red Square, MoscowCredit:Aaron Chown /PA Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Dozens of football hooligans have failed to surrender their passports ahead of Thursday’s World Cup opening ceremony, raising fears they could attempt to travel to Russia.Police are now visiting known hooligans who have yet to hand over their travel documents in a bid to ensure they remain at home.Latest Home Office figures show that 58 people banned from travelling to the World Cup have not surrendered their passports since the exclusion period began on June 4.Of the 1,312 individuals subject to football banning orders preventing them from travelling to overseas games, 1,254 have either handed over the documents voluntarily, been forced to do so or did not have a passport in the first place.Police are in place at UK ports to stop any suspected troublemakers trying to get to  to the tournament, which promises to open with a spectacular ceremony at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.Officials say they are confident that few, if any, hooligans will succeed in getting to Russia, and if they do they will be met by a huge security operation.Nick Hurd , Minister for Policing and the Fire Service said: “The World Cup is a festival of football and is no place for violence or disorder. read more

Meet Italys reallife Sherlock Holmes who donned multiple disguises to crack notoriousMeet Italys reallife Sherlock Holmes who donned multiple disguises to crack notorious

first_img Saturday 21 Jan 2017, 5:00 PM Image: Sherlock/BBC via Youtube Jan 21st 2017, 5:00 PM 16,769 Views WITH HIS SHERLOCK Holmes-style penchant for using multiple disguises to help crack his cases, Giuseppe Dosi was no ordinary policeman.And nearly 36 years after his death, Italians are still discovering the secrets of the “artist detective”.Dosi, who was born in 1891, abandoned his dreams of a career on the stage as a young man. After two years treading the boards however, he never lost his relish for the challenge of taking on a new role.A priest, a banker, a German doctor and a Czech army officer with a pronounced limp were just some of the parts the Rome-born officer played in the course of a long career.And like Arthur Conan Doyle’s eccentric creation, Holmes, the Italian was not opposed to a little cross-dressing, if he felt posing as a woman would help him get his man.Interest in Dosi has been spurred by a new biography, written by a serving police chief, a documentary about his life and by some of the detective’s professional archives being placed online.“He had a type of postcard printed for friends and colleagues which showed him in 17 different disguises corresponding to the different identities he assumed in the course of 17 different investigations,” said Alessia Glielmi, an archivist at Rome’s Historical Museum of the Liberation who is an expert on Dosi.“As well as the disguised characters, he had four fully-formed identities he used with all the necessary papers and back story to support them,” Glielmi told AFP.Mysterious balcony fallAfter his entry into the police force, Dosi’s bosses quickly found ways of making use of his talent for imitation, trusting him with sensitive missions in Italy and abroad.One early one involved infiltrating a group of Swiss-based Italian anarchists who were, it was feared, plotting to assassinate the then king, Vittorio Emanuele III.In 1922, when the poet and politician Gabriele D’Annunzio fell from his balcony in mysterious circumstances, it was Dosi who was put in charge of the delicate investigation.“That involved one of his best disguises,” said Glielmi, describing how the detective adopted the persona of Karel Kradokwill, an exiled Czech who spoke Italian with a thick German accent and trailed one ostensibly semi-paralysed leg behind him as a result of a war wound.By going undercover in this way, Dosi was able to establish that D’Annunzio’s balcony mishap was down to a row with his combustible mistress rather than any political plot against him.The case was closed, prompting D’Annunzio, once he became aware of the deception, to denounce Dosi as a “dirty cop.”What the writer did not know was that the officer had also used his time in his house to make copies of some of the poet’s private correspondence — racy love letters to his mistress only recently identified as historical documents for the insight they offer into the life of D’Annunzio.In 1927 Dosi became involved in a famous miscarriage of justice case centred on a series of murders and rapes of young girls in Rome.Under pressure to find a culprit, the authorities pinned the blame on a photographer, Gino Girolimoni, feeding incriminating details to the press that led to the suspect being dubbed the Monster of Rome.Investigator for Allied forcesDosi was not convinced and managed to get the investigation reopened, putting together a case against a British clergyman who may have been the actual culprit but was able to skip the country before his arrest.In an Italy then under fascist rule, this kind of independent thinking did not go down well, although Dosi was far from being an active resistant to dictator Benito Mussolini’s authoritarian rule.Towards the end of the 1930s he began to think of leaving the police and wrote a memoir which revealed numerous details of his investigations as well as treating his bosses to some stinging criticism.That was to prove a final straw for his superiors. Suspended from the police, Dosi was imprisoned in Rome in 1939 and then transferred to an asylum for the mentally ill, where he languished for 17 months until his release in January 1941.After three years confined to a desk job, another noteworthy episode got him back in the investigative saddle.In June 1944, as Allied forces were entering the Italian capital, an angry mob attacked a former German prison, freeing the prisoners and then setting it ablaze.With the help of a young German soldier, Dosi went into the burning building and recovered a huge stock of documents that were to prove vital for subsequent prosecutions of Italians, who had collaborated with the Nazis.Dosi handed the papers over to Allied commanders and got taken on as a special investigator for two years. In 1946 he returned to the ranks of the Italian police, rising to the grade of commissioner before his retirement, 10 years later.He died, aged 89, in 1981.© – AFP, 2017Read: Badass Mrs Hudson was the best thing about season four of Sherlock 9 Comments Image: Sherlock/BBC via Youtube Share Tweet Email3 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article http://jrnl.ie/3196176 By AFP Short URL Meet Italy’s real-life Sherlock Holmes who donned multiple disguises to crack notorious cases Giuseppe Dosi was hailed as a “master of disguise” who solved a range of crimes as a detective.last_img read more

Victorias Greek senior citizen organisations to get boost under reelected Labor govtVictorias Greek senior citizen organisations to get boost under reelected Labor govt

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The political campaign trail ahead of the Victorian state elections has brought good news this week for Greek senior citizens groups.On Tuesday Premier Daniel Andrews together with Minister for Families and Children, Early Childhood Education and Youth Affairs Jenny Mikakos met with senior Greek Australians in Port Melbourne, where the Premier pledged $3.4 million to go towards the state’s multicultural senior citizens groups under a re-elected Labor Government.If successfully voted in, every one of Victoria’s 862 groups will receive a $4,000 grant in 2019.The funds will be allocated with the intention that they been put towards holding activities for members, including excursions, dancing, singing, and religious feast day celebrations. The grants can also be used for equipment upgrades to assist groups to hold future events that benefit the social well-being of older culturally and linguistically diverse Victorians, including commercial kitchen appliances, fridges, and barbecues.The Premier acknowledged the sacrifices made by older migrants in venturing to Australia and building a life for themselves and their families in Victoria, as did many Greeks, and that this is a way of helping to repay them.“Older migrants came to Australia and worked hard all of their life to build a better future for their children. In doing so they helped to build this nation – as Premier of Victoria, I say thank you,” he said.“Like Labor, Prime Ministers Gough Whitlam and Bob Hawke, and Labor Premier Steve Bracks before me, I will always stand with our multicultural communities.”The President of the Federation of Greek Elderly Citizens Clubs of Melbourne and Victoria John Kostoulias welcomed the announcement.“All senior citizen clubs are run by volunteers and the Government’s $4000 will provide ongoing support to ensure that activities and cultural festivals can continue so elderly can maintain connections with their local communities,” he said.Eligibility for the grants will be open to all multicultural senior citizen groups funded as part of the Victorian Budget’s 2018/19 Senior Citizens Organisational Support Grants program.last_img read more

Boston Dynamics Robots Do Backflips Now I GuessBoston Dynamics Robots Do Backflips Now I Guess

first_img Boston Dynamics has been one of the leading purveyors of really friggin’ creepy bots for some time. Way back in 2005, the gasoline-powered BigDog wowed with its ability to slip on ice or receive a kick to chassis and still recover. Some also thought the video represented the first crimes against machine kind for which humans would surely pay dearly for down the line.But now, 12 years later, the company has refined their skills to a terrifying point. The latest iteration of their human-shamed robot, ATLAS, is now a capable gymnast. And yeah, if you’re a bit stunned by that leap, you’re not the only one.I mean, really you gotta see the video before you read the rest. This machine can perform and land a perfect backflip unaided. And… WHAT?!Since when could robots do that? Just last year, SpotMini was still struggling to run through a house and not trip over a banana. And it was impressive that it could hold its gripping arm stable regardless of its own orientation, but going from that to weird ninja-jumps and badass backflips in a year is… well… blah blah robot apocalypse blah blah.And that’s not all the bot is capable of. The video also shows it being able to make progressive leaps on taller and taller platforms and rotating 180 degrees mid-jump to reposition for the impressive finale. It’s truly a stunner and a marked leap forward for humanoid robot maneuverability, but it’s also a bit too early to herald the genuine end of people.Boston Dynamics loves to poke fun at themselves and their bots when they can (which is exactly why we know SpotMini slipped on a banana in the first place), and this iteration of ATLAS is no different. The video also includes some clips of the bot totally biffing the landing and smacking its stomach (serious question: do bots have stomachs? How do you describe robot anatomy?) on a metal block.While the rest of the clip shows just how fast the field of robotics is progressing, it’s also plenty proof that they’ve got a long way to go yet. And, if anything, it makes ATLAS seem a bit more relatable.A bit ago, Boston Dynamics actually gave a Ted Talk about how humans feel when bots mess up. And it turns out we like them a lot more.“Research has shown that people form their opinions and expectations about robots to a substantial proportion of what they learn from the media,” scientist Nicole Mirnig told Digital Trends in an interview. “Those media entail movies in which robots are often portrayed as perfectly functioning entities, good or evil. Upon interacting with a social robot themselves, people adjust their opinions and expectations based on their interaction experience. I assume that interacting with a robot that makes mistakes, makes us feel closer and less inferior to technology.”I gotta admit I fall victim to this too. I know robots will end us all. And that we must stop their advance or face extinction (I’m half-joking… kinda…), but when they mess up it’s also really cute and endearing, and I just want to help.Dammit. This is how it starts. This is how they get you. NO MERCY FOR THE MACHINES!

New evidence suggests large asteroid strike may have influenced Mercurys spinNew evidence suggests large asteroid strike may have influenced Mercurys spin

first_img It’s partly because of evidence like this that a group of European researchers is proposing that Mercury, the planet closest to the sun in our solar system, was once tidal locked with the sun, but now is not, because, as they assert in their paper published in Nature Geoscience, it was knocked into its current spin by a large asteroid. They even have a likely crater made by the impact to back up their theory.It’s called Caloris Basin, the largest impact crater on Mercury’s surface, and it appears to be just the right size to fit the computer model the team has created. What happened, they suggest, is that long ago, Mercury had an east to west (retrograde) spin, but then over millions of years, slowed till it spun no more. Then, at some later time, the planet was struck by an asteroid large enough to cause it to begin spinning again. But this time, in the opposite direction, though not very fast, causing Mercury’s current 3/2 (three spins on its axis for every two trips around the sun) spin it has today.The team points out that one side of Mercury clearly has more craters than the other, but perhaps more concretely suggest that the thus far inexplicable hollows inside the Caloris Basin could be the result of ice that was once buried by matter from the asteroid when it hit, then melted as sunlight began to fall on it as a result of the planet spinning again.And finally, they say, the side that would have been the hot side before being struck by the asteroid would have been flatter than the opposite, more cratered side, do to molten activity. Evidence from Mariner 10 and MESSENGER, suggest that this is the case as well.It all adds up, the team concludes, to a planet that once spun one way, stopped, then was knocked into spinning the other way.

This unique state has been explained by an initial rapid prograde rotation, which was then decelerated by tidal torques to the present resonance. When friction at the core–mantle boundary is accounted for, capture into the 3/2 resonance occurs with a probability of only 26%, whereas the most likely outcome is capture into one of the higher-order resonances7. Here we use a numerical model of Mercury’s rotational evolution to investigate the consequences of an initial retrograde rotation of Mercury. We find that in this case, the planet would be captured into synchronous rotation, with one hemisphere always facing the Sun, with a probability of 68%. Strong lateral variations in the impact cratering rate would have existed, consistent with the observed distribution of large impact basins. Escape from this highly stable resonance can be initiated by the momentum imparted by large, basin-forming impact events, and subsequent capture into the 3/2 resonance is likely. During synchronous rotation, substantial quantities of volatile deposits would have accumulated on the hemisphere facing away from the Sun, potentially explaining the existence of sublimation hollows on Mercury’s surface (PhysOrg.com) — Planets orbiting a sun generally, but not always spin on their axis. Some spin east to west, others west to east. Those that don’t spin are said to be tidal locked with their sun; always showing it the same face, such as the moon does with planet Earth. In these instances, the planet tends to develop different properties than it would were it spinning. One side is cold, the other hot, for example leading to unique geophysical properties. Also because of the sun’s gravitational pull, more asteroids are likely to hit the far side of the planet, leaving more craters.

first_imgTo expand share of fashion jewellery in India’s export, the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) is organizing the 9th edition of the three-day Indian Fashion Jewellery and Accessories Show (IFJAS-2016) at the India Expo Centre & Mart, Greater Noida, NCR Delhi from July 21 to July 23, 2016. Over 250 manufacturers and exporters from all over the country will be showcasing the wide range of fashion jewellery and accessories to attract overseas buyers and their representatives to source their requirements under one roof, informed Dinesh Kumar, Chairman – EPCH. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He further informed that IFJAS 2016 will provide a global platform for the fashion jewellery and accessories sector to make a dent into the 16.3-billion-dollar world market and increase India’s share in this segment which is negligible at present.Mainly focusing on fashion products like fashion and costume jewellery, scarves, beads, wallets, fancy fashion footwear and many more, IFJAS 2016 will also showcase the widest range of materials, products and designs in five categories comprising of fashion jewellery, semi precious jewellery, fashion accessories, hand bags and fancy & embroidered fashion shoes, imitation jewellery and shawls. Describing it as an important part of India’s export basket, Rakesh Kumar, ED- EPCH, stated that “India’s exports of fashion jewellery and accessories in the year 2015-16 was to the tune of Rs 2755 crores, but still its share in the world market is very less and holding of IFJAS is part of Council’s drive to promote and expand horizons of key verticals of the handicrafts sector which has tremendous potential to expand further.”  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe top importing nations for jewellery in the world are USA, Germany, UK, France, Japan, Switzerland, Netherlands, Canada, Belgium, Hong Kong, Spain, Australia, Italy and Latin American countries and India is already exporting to these markets, the ED-EPCH  added. Rakesh Kumar further said, “IFJAS would give a distinct platform to those specializing in the wide range of fashion products. A focused show for this sector, IFJAS would give exhibitors a unique opportunity to display capabilities and fully exploit their business potential.”  The   exports of fashion jewellery and accessories from India went up from Rs 2502 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 2755 crores  in 2015-16 registering a growth of 10.10per cent  added the Executive Director. “In the earlier times, there used to be a lot of sentiments attached to jewellery which is no longer the case, we are trying to bring back those lost sentiments with these fashion jewellery,” said Rakesh Kumar. A major highlight will be setting up of Young Designers Forum for providing business opportunities to upcoming designers for fashion jewellery sector. It was also said that the major competitor of Indian fashion jewellery is China, but their products are machine made while ours are handmade. Due to this factor India is gradually growing in this market. This year, some famous companies from USA, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Belgium, Chile and Portugal will be importing the products on display at the exposition. Ajay Shankar Memorial awards for best designed stands in the category of fashion jewellery & accessories will also be distributed during IFJAS 2016 on July 22.last_img read more

Oprah Winfrey christens Holland Americas most luxurious ship yetOprah Winfrey christens Holland Americas most luxurious ship yet

first_imgTags: Holland America Line, New Ship, Nieuw Statendam, Openings & Renovations Oprah Winfrey christens Holland America’s most luxurious ship yet Monday, February 4, 2019 Francesca Spizzirri FORT LAUDERDALE — The 2,666-passenger Nieuw Statendam, second in the Pinnacle Class line after 2016’s Koningsdam, is Holland America Line’s newest, largest and most modern vessel to date.On a seven-day voyage through the eastern Caribbean in January 2019, Travelweek discovered why the ship is also making waves as the fleet’s most luxurious ship.Taking on the role of ship godmother for her first time this past weekend was none other than Oprah Winfrey, who presided over the new ship’s gala celebration and who celebrated Nieuw Statendam’s inaugural cruise by hosting a sold-out three-day ‘Girls’ Getaway’.Oprah WinfreyHolland America Line’s partnership with Oprah Magazine continues onboard through its programming which includes workshops, morning meditation and book clubs.As Travelweek found out on a January 2019 sailing on Nieuw Statendam, though many of the preferred features from Koningsdam have been carried over, there are a few subtle differences between the two sister ships that reflect the ongoing evolution of the Holland America experience.The Nieuw Statendam features eight additional cabins bringing the total stateroom count to 1,339, while a redesign of the ship’s ocean-view family cabins provides more living space. Fan favourites including cabins for solo travellers, the two-tier Lido Deck with outdoor movie screen, Blend wine-making venue, and a compressive kids’ club are back, as is an expanded and interactive Explorations Central & Café.Lido PoolMusic and art continue to influence the Pinnacle Class in bold ways. Nieuw Statendam’s curated collection of art by ArtLink includes 2,000 pieces and is the largest collection to grace any of Holland America’s ships, quickly turning it into a topic of conversation among guests.The multi-venue ‘Music Walk’ hits all the notes. “The Pinnacle Class fleet is the only one to feature all four of HAL’s open lounge music venues,” says Vice President of Entertainment & Enrichment, Bill Prince.More news:  War of words between Transat, Group Mach ramps upLincoln Center Stage and B.B. King’s Blues Club (which share the same stage), Billboard Onboard, and the Rolling Stone Rock Room – the line’s newest venue, developed in partnership with Rolling Stone – will have guests singing and dancing the night away.“Music Walk has changed the entire dynamic of how the ship works and has become more of an overall concept,” added Prince. With various combinations of these clubs slated to appear fleet-wide over the next couple of years and more guests on the floor exploring other venues, the World Stage is shifting its focus towards partnerships with touring units such as Step One Dance Company and the internet phenomenon Postmodern Jukebox, that are also attracting younger guests.A noticeable difference between the sister ships is the change to the Culinary Arts Center. “We’ve found that America’s Test Kitchen is a bigger success now that we have moved it to the World Stage,” says Prince. “We can accommodate a larger audience and give them the full TV show experience in a way we could not in the Culinary Arts Center.”Pinnacle SuiteThe World Stage boasts an additional 100 seats holding a total of 800 passengers.The new Club Orange restaurant, which replaces the Culinary Arts Center, is a private dining venue for breakfast and lunch, offering an expanded menu to suite-class passengers and a limited number of guests who pay the US$50 per person per day up-charge for the full Club Orange premium experience.Club Orange is slated to roll out across the fleet throughout 2019. Some other perks include priority boarding and tendering, deluxe room service menu at breakfast and a dedicated concierge.More news:  CIE Tours launches first-ever River Cruise CollectionNieuw Statendam takes luxury dining at sea to new horizons with over a dozen venues, including five speciality restaurants that appeal to cruisers with a finer palate. Rudi’s Sel de Mer has a permanent home onboard; Tamarind became the first restaurant in Holland America’s history to offer alfresco dining and has added a space for the brand new Nami Sushi Bar; the Lido Market is no longer self-serve to provide guests with a first-rate dining experience throughout.Dining RoomWine connoisseurs will celebrate the ship’s new wine list that has been restructured and recategorized by James Suckling, one of the world’s most influential wine critics. While over at the Ocean Bar, guests can savour a seafaring selection of cocktails created by one of the world’s foremost cocktail experts, Dale DeGroff.“There are new technological advances as well,” says Hotel Director, Don Habets. “We have faster Internet, a new version of tablets in the dining rooms, a descending sphered dome in the World Stage, a call button at tables in the Lido Market, and there is a new interface for TV and video-on-demand.”With the majority of cruisers booking their cruises through a travel agent, cruises remain a lucrative business and the 99,500-ton Nieuw Statendam is one of the year’s most anticipated additions.The ship will spend its inaugural season on roundtrip Fort Lauderdale cruises to the western and eastern Caribbean that will include a stop at Half Moon Cay. Come April, the ship will reposition to Europe sailing Norway and the Mediterranean, before returning to the Caribbean in October.Agents can also keep an eye out for the third and final Pinnacle Class ship to debut in 2021.center_img Share Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   TEMPE — Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has mentioned a couple of times since the start of training camp how he’d like to see his defense get its hands on a few more balls, whether it be deflections, pass breakups or turnovers.His message appears to be getting through.The defense has been much more active, especially during Thursday’s practice, which was relocated to the team’s facility in Tempe because of a soccer match at University of Phoenix Stadium. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires A number of defenders, including Yeremiah Bell, Rashad Johnson and Daryl Washington disrupted passes downfield.No one though had a better day than Tyrann Mathieu, who picked off two passes, including one in the end zone on a ball thrown by Drew Stanton.“Definitely, by far,” Mathieu answered when asked if it was his best day of camp. “Any time you can get turnovers for your team — I think I had a forced fumble too — any time you can get turnovers for your team, it puts your offense in a position to score and that usually puts us in position to win.”Said fellow LSU alum Patrick Peterson, “Really excited for him. Hopefully, we’ll have to find a spot for him with the first defense.”Right now, Mathieu is running with the second team, but is occasionally getting a snap or two with the first unit on dime packages (six defensive backs).“I don’t think I was making as many plays when camp first started because I had that whole year off,” he said. “This week I’m getting more comfortable. I’m getting used to the shoulder pads again and just flying around now.”Near the end of the more than 90-minute padded practice, during live tackling inside the red zone, defensive tackle Dan Williams had his left knee rolled up on and according to the Cardinals is undergoing tests to determine if there was any damage. Moments after Williams was carted off, defensive end Calais Campbell limped off the field favoring his left leg.The outdoor practice was the first of camp.“It’s good for us to come out here and face these conditions and just do something different and get a shock to our bodies and check our mindset. It’s all mental,” Johnson said. Temperatures hit 100 degrees, though it felt much worse given the humidity.“At the end of the day, we’re going to be playing half of our games in open stadiums. We want to make sure that we can think in the heat and make sure we can execute plays when we’re tired,” Peterson said.The Cardinals will be back indoors in Glendale Friday. “We want to get outside and get a little toughness working in the heat,” Arians said. “There’s some dog days of camp that need to happen. It’s tough to get it in the air conditioning.” Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
