Got to ski, but have no snow? Just “roll” with the punches

first_imgJust as stunt-based shows often start out their broadcasts with warnings not to try this at home, I feel it’s my due diligence to open this article by saying don’t do this at home and that my experience, pushing the limits on day one are not typical. Although I came back from my first roller skiing adventure, courtesy of Rossland’s Kootenay Nordic Sports, slightly thrashed and road rashed, my hopes for good times were not dashed. I’m an addict, I admit it. In the same week that a BC Day long weekend drive up to a Nelson area lodge yielded a summer ski run through a high altitude gully, an online posting about roller skiing caught my eye. I called up Dave Gibson from Kootenay Nordic Sports, and he graciously offered me use of a set of roller skis along with the instructional services of his daughter Sierra, an up and coming Nordic ski champ with her eyes on the prize for 2018.  We pulled onto Hannah Creek Road (just before the Teck fertilizer plan if you’re coming from Webster Elementary). This rarely-travelled route offers up smooth pavement along rolling, windy hills: a perfect location for roller skiers and long boarders alike.  The gear is familiar: regular, skating cross country ski boots, poles (preferably with rubber nubs on the ends), mountain bike gloves and a bike helmet. The skis, however, are something new. They consist of a skate ski binding mounted on a narrow platform between two wheels, longer and with larger wheels than roller blades. Clipping in for my first roll, I went through the progressions.  The first major difference is simply balance. Staying atop narrow inline wheels requires an added bit of thought.  Starting out pole-less, we slowly skated along the flats, maintaining the small V stance and simulating pole motions to nail the timing of the various styles. Several passes in, we added poles to the mix and went through single stride, double stride and offset poling. To this point, it is all very similar to cross country and along the flats felt quite natural.  Tackling the first small decline, poles tucked up under my arms, I began playing around with the skis a bit, working on balance, seeing how they react.  Typically, getting through all of these steps would be one heck of a first lesson. Going back to old school journalism, though, you’ve got to really live something before you can write honestly about it, no?  In passing Dave mentioned in a science-camp-beautiful dopplar shifting way that there was a washout on the far side of the next hill. Not super keen to coming in high speed through a wash of gravel we turned around and pointed our wheels back down the slope.  There were suggestions from the group that it would be entirely respectable to walk down the hill or at least part of it. I would later find out many people, even after skating for years, still walk down. But I came out to roll and roll I would.  The slope began mellowly enough. Watching Sierra skate down the start of the decline before tucking out of sight through the S bend, it looked like a lot of fun as well.  I had my strategy figured. I’d take it easy down the first part of the steep slope, line up for the turn and then open it up and let it roll. In theory, it was a great strategy. In execution it was more of a straight roll from the summit, picking up speed, passing beyond the threshold of being able to stop an then playing the mental game of not panicking, holding it together, knees bent. Just ride it out, nice and smooth.  My left leg got a bit squirrelly, then the right. Recovery, keep it together. There goes leftie again, over-correct, there goes righty, and before I knew it I was on the pavement in the hollow, just before the S bend.  The moral of the story? Pavement is harder than snow, but roller skiing is no harder than cross country skiing and a super fun way to stay in shape over the summer. Pavement is faster than snow, no doubt about it, and the balancing involved is more akin to ice skating than skiing. The hills are good fun and the speed addictive. My only piece of advice, however, is this: save the hills for at least lesson two.  Kootenay Nordic Sports is currently working on reassembling a regular weekly group of roller skiers. If you’re an experienced roller skier already, stop by the shop Wednesday evenings at 5:30. If you’re a first timer, call the shop ahead, they’ve got spare skis and can offer lessons.last_img read more

Sugar Bears Fall to Shockers in Women’s NIVC

first_imgDENTON, Texas – The Central Arkansas Sugar Bears saw their season end after losing a five-set thriller against the Wichita State Shockers in the first round of the National Invitational Volleyball Championship on Thursday night. The duo of Tabitha Brown and Megan Taflinger led the Shockers to victory as they combined for 44 of WSU’s 66 kills. Samantha Anderson led the Sugar Bears with 18 kills and a .359 hitting percentage while Haley Tippett followed with 12 kills and Abbie Harry added nine. Wichita State looked to be in cruise control heading into the fourth set as they had won sets two and three handily, but Central Arkansas responded with a gritty 25-23 set win to push the match to five sets. Head coach Jeni Jones Chatman was very pleased with her team’s response in set four. “We have some great girls that will get the chance to step up next year. We all know what they’re capable of because we see it every day in practice,” Anderson said. “The reason why we were such a good team is because we played against good girls on the other side of the net in practices. The third set started close as Anderson landed a kill in the back-right corner that tied the set at 2-2, but the Shockers created separation with a 14-4 spurt that gave them the 16-6 lead. Up 8-6, Wichita State went on a 6-0 run as Taflinger caught fire and had five kills in the stretch. The Sugar Bears could not cool down the Shockers as they closed the set on a 17-7 run and won 25-13. They finished with 20 kills in the third set alone and were led by the hands of Taflinger as she delivered 9 of them. I have complete confidence that the team will have new seniors step up and have freshmen that will follow the footsteps of the older girls and help contribute.” The Sugar Bears season ends with a 26-7 record, the sixth time in nine seasons that the team finished with more than 25 wins. The team will lose five important seniors, but Anderson thinks the team will be fine looking ahead to next year. “I am very proud of the fight that our team had in the fourth set. Samantha Anderson was a big reason for that, she led the way and everyone followed her lead,” Chatman said. “Wichita State is a very talented program year after year and so for us to be able to pull out set four was very impressive.”We are very proud of the fight. So fortunate to be a team of incredible people that push & want the best for each other. Seniors, there are no words, you will be greatly missed. #BearClawsUp #InsiemeSiamoUno #TogetherWeAreOne #26and7 ??: @bradleywidding pic.twitter.com/xpzwTfzkV8— 2017 Southland Tournament Champions (@ucavball) November 30, 2018 Brown helped the Shockers jump out to an early 2-0 lead in set five after she delivered back-to-back kills. The Sugar Bears pulled within one after a Savanah Allen kill made it 5-4, but the Shockers responded with a 6-2 run that saw three straight Sugar Bear errors and Wichita State held a commanding 11-6 lead. Central Arkansas made it a three-point game after an Anderson kill and Shocker error made it 12-9, but Wichita State quickly answered with two kills of their own and held a 14-9 lead. The Sugar Bears tried to make one last run as they got another Anderson kill and Shocker error to make it 14-11, but the set ended on the next point as Central Arkansas’ serve landed out in the back-right corner and the Shockers won 15-11. The fourth set had a postseason feel to it as there were 14 ties recorded in the game. After the eighth tie of the set at 9-9, the Sugar Bears found a gasp of air as they went on a mini 2-0 spurt that made it 11-9. As both sides continued to battle, the Shockers got a Taflinger kill and Emma Wright service ace to make it 14-14, the 9th tie of the set. After five more ties occurred and the score sat at 21-21, Central Arkansas went on a 4-2 run that was led by two big kills from Harry that helped the Sugar Bears finally pull away and get the clutch 25-23 fourth set win.Thankful for another great season at my Alma Mater. Finished the season at 26-7. It’s never easy to see the last point of a senior class. Proud of this team and staff for another stellar season. pic.twitter.com/tlvtdtwdpJ— John Newberry (@TheCoachJohn) November 30, 2018 The Shockers did not have their heads down as they came out in the second set and started with a commanding 9-1 lead that contained five Sugar Bear errors. Central Arkansas responded well with a 10-4 run that was capped off by three straight Wichita State errors that made it 13-11. The Sugar Bears got even closer after two more Shocker errors made it 14-13, but Wichita State went on a 6-0 run that helped them pull away for good. A Shocker service error gave the Sugar Bears a glimmer of hope as the lead was cut to six, but a Sugar Bears service error gave the Shockers the 25-18 win. The Shockers jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the first set after Brown got going quickly and delivered two of her 22 kills early. Anderson wasted no time in making her presence known as she delivered back-to-back kills and evened the score at 4-4. After three more ties occurred, Central Arkansas gained its first lead after a Wichita State error made it 9-8. The Shockers responded with a 4-1 run and held a 11-9 lead, but the Sugar Bears went on a run of their own and created some separation after a Ravin Rhodes ace made it 14-12. After a Shockers ace tied it back at 15-15, the Sugar Bears went on a crucial 4-0 run sparked by three Tippett kills that made it 19-15. The Shockers would pull within two at 19-17, but the Sugar Bears closed the door on the comeback as Anderson and Tippett delivered back-to-back kills to win set one 25-20.last_img read more

They are at home, which favors them. But we improved in the last match. We’ll play our game and try to makehistory.”After Monday’s training at Allianz Parque, Tite confirmed Brazil will test goalkeeper Ederson as a starter. He confirmed that defender Marquinhos, who will replace the injured Thiago Silva, will be the captain forthe clash against the desperate Chileans in Sao Paulo.Chile will be without key midfielder Arturo Vidal, who is suspended for an accumulation of yellow cards.Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has called up Esteban Pavez, who plays for Brazil’s Atletico Paranaense.“We qualified for the World Cup three matches ago and this has not changed the seriousness and the behavior of our team,” Gabriel Jesus said. “And it won’t change now.”In social media many Brazilian fans have jokingly said Chile should get a hand to advance and put the Argentines at an even bigger risk of humiliation. “Entrega Brasil”, which means “Give it away Brazil” in Portuguese, has been one of the most mentioned lines by Brazilians on Twitter since last week.

Information being compiled – President

first_imgInquiry into extrajudicial killingsPresident David Granger is holding to a promise made while he was Opposition Leader to probe the extrajudicial killings that occurred in Guyana during the period 2000 to 2008.According to the Head of State, such an inquiry is still on the table. In fact, he noted that the information required to conduct the probes are being compiled. “The information is still being compiled; as you know, we’ve taken actions to ensure that inquests are conducted,” he stated during the weekly programme The Public Interest, which was aired on Friday.Convicted felon Roger KhanGranger noted that he cannot fathom what prevented the previous administration from taking such steps, especially since one of its Cabinet members, former Agriculture Minister Satyadeo Sawh, was killed in the same manner.“Even in the case of the Minister of Agriculture who was assassinated, a sitting member of Cabinet, and there is no investigations, no inquest, no magistrate’s inquest wasn’t conducted. Members of the (Sawh) family have spoken to me face to face and asked for investigations to be done and we are proceeding in that way,” the President asserted.Sawh, his sister Phulmattie Persaud, his brother Rajpat Sawh and security guard Curtis Robinson, were gunned down on April 22, 2008 at the former Minister’s La Bonne Intention, East Coast Demerara, home.As Opposition Leader and even after his appointment into the presidency, Granger has called for a Commission of Inquiry into extrajudicial killings in Guyana.President David GrangerIn August 2015, while addressing a forum on the State of African-Guyanese at the Critchlow Labour College, President Granger said: “I will ensure that all those who were killed have their deaths investigated.”He also reiterated his intention to see a motion passed in the National Assembly for the appointment of a Commission of Inquiry which will probe a large number of killings during the period 2000 to 2008.Granger had first drafted the motion in 2012 while he was Opposition Leader. It seeks to investigate, among others, the killing of Sawh and the massacres at Lusignan, Bartica and Lindo Creek.In efforts to take a step closer to those killings, government wanted to ensure that there is an efficient and effective Coroner Department in place to investigate the crimes of that period. In this vain, government used its one seat majority in the National Assembly back in January this year to pass the Coroner’s Amendment Bill, which will see, among other things, a minimum of four full-time coroners in Demerara, three in Berbice and two in Essequibo.The Coalition has contended that during the ‘Phantom Squad’ era and prison escapee-led crime spree, hundreds of Guyanese lives were lost, including many police officers. Some 31 ranks including Superintendent Leon Fraser were killed in the line of duty during the period proposed for probing.The notorious ‘Phantom Squad’ is said to be led by self-confessed druglord Shaheed Roger Khan, who is currently serving a 15-year sentence in the United States after he pleaded guilty to arms trafficking, drug trafficking, conspiracy and witness tampering.Khan had made claims of working to curb an out-of-control crime situation during that period by using extrajudicial methods of execution.In October last year, US Ambassador Perry Holloway had told local reporters, when asked, that there is a possibility for the Guyana Government to access Khan’s testimony in the US Courts. He noted that there is a process to follow but one which has high requirements. Nevertheless, the US diplomat said that his country would cooperate if the necessary procedures are followed.“If the rules and regulations of the agreement are done with Guyana, or we have signed up under the UN or OAS to allow for such a thing, we would be sure to be disposed to cooperating within the framework of the rule of law,” the US Ambassador had stated.In response, President Granger disclosed back in March that there are plans to probe extrajudicial killings and noted that if there are connections to the convicted drug baron, then the Guyana Government will seek to engage him.“Wherever those leads take us, we will follow… We need to have a lawful and orderly society and whoever is accused of committing murders will have to be punished… I’m not accusing anybody but where ever those leads take us, we will follow to make sure justice is done and Guyanese can live in a country where they can be assured of being safe,” the Head of State had remarked.On the other hand, even as the Coalition is adamant about probing the killings during the 2000 to 2008 era, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Opposition had raised concerns, noting that government should launch investigations dating back to the 1970s and not only the 2000s.In fact, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had accused the coalition of being selective in its calls for investigations and suggested instead that the probe be done into all the murders and all the missing weaponry: “We should have an inquiry into everything, maybe the mother of all inquiries.”last_img read more
