Badgers rebound in home victory over Northwestern

first_imgSenior Brittany Dolgner led the team with 17 kills in a win over Northwestern.[/media-credit]In a season that has featured only two winning streaks, none longer than two games, Wisconsin continued its up-and-down trend on the weekend with a four-set win Saturday over Northwestern.A night after falling to No. 8 Illinois, the Badgers rebounded nicely on their home court, winning a tough match against the Wildcats that featured 25 ties and 12 lead changes. Wisconsin had a season-high 14 blocks, five of which came from freshman Kirby Toon, who also had 13 kills in the match.Senior outside hitter Brittney Dolgner led the team with a match-high 17 kills, six of which came during the first set, which the Badgers also won 25-19.Wisconsin dominated Northwestern at the start, getting the first point and not relinquishing the lead or even allowing a tie score during the first set. The Badgers’ biggest lead was seven points, and while the Wildcats cut the lead 23-19, they were never really in position to take a lead.“That was a good win tonight — we responded well after coming off the loss last night,” UW head coach Pete Waite said. “We saw a much better offensive performance and the blocking was very strong.”From a team standpoint, the defense was perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Badgers’ game. Along with the season-high 14 blocks, Wisconsin had three players with double digit digs, including a match-high 19 from libero Kim Kuzma.On the offensive side, in addition from big nights from Dolgner and Toon, the Badgers also got a boost from Elle Ohlander, who returned from a knee injury with 10 kills and only two errors against the Wildcats.But according to Dolgner, while the hitters were doing their part, the reason the Badgers were able to be so effective offensively was the strong play from setter Janelle Gabrielsen. The sophomore had 46 assists and eight digs, and Dolgner believes her stellar passing allowed for better opportunities at the net.“I think that really has to do with how we dig the ball and how efficient Nellie is,” Dolgner said. “When the ball is dug right to her she can dish it anywhere. She’s really good at seeing where her blockers are … so I think that’s why I was getting a lot of kills.”The second set didn’t go as smoothly for the Badgers. After leading the entire way through the first set, the Wildcats finally took the lead for the first time at 6-5 in the second. After eight tie scores and three lead changes, Northwestern pulled away and finished the set with a commanding 25-18 win.Even though the Badgers quickly grabbed the momentum with their strong first set, Waite wasn’t surprised to see Northwestern snatch it back, especially with the talent the Wildcats possess.“We knew this team comes a lot; they won in five against Indiana and Purdue, and those are two pretty strong teams, so we knew they were a resilient group,” Waite said. “And anytime you have a player like Sabel Moffett in the middle who can just fly and score, you’ve got an opportunity to come back, and that’s really what they did.”For the rest of the match, neither team was able to fully ride the momentum.After seven ties and six lead changes in the third set, the Badgers finally were able to come away with a huge 25-23 comeback win. Northwestern led the Badgers by as many as five points, but Wisconsin took eight of the last nine points to complete the huge comeback, which Waite noted as an integral part of the match.“The turning point was in the third set when we were down late in the game,” Waite said. “That’s a pretty strong turn of events. It shows the composure of the team to hold them off and come back and get that. It really gave our team a lot of confidence going into the fourth [set].”After losing to Illinois, the Badgers needed a win to stay put in the middle of the pack in the Big Ten.While they may have expected a tough match against Northwestern, the contest’s back-and-forth nature made for a physically exhausting test. For Toon, however, the game’s difficulty made the win that much more enjoyable.“I think physically it was a very demanding game,” Toon said. “But that’s when a match is most rewarding, when you have to fight for the win and you get it. I think mentally though we were really focused and really alert, so that was good.”last_img read more

Powered by Firework ~ The matches will be telecast live and exclusive on SONY TEN 1 & SONY TEN 2 channels in India from March 11, 2020~Advertisement The first leg of UEFA Champions League – Round of 16 witnessed thrilling clashes between the 16 teams, vying to mark their places in the quarter finals of this prestigious tournament. The clubs will yet again battle on the field as a part of home and away format, trying their best to keep the aggregate score in their favor. Let’s take a look at the first round of high-octane clashes scheduled for the second leg of Round of 16.Advertisement Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund – PSG are under pressure to perform after losing 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund in Germany but they do possess the talent to turn this Champions League tie around. The French aristocrats looked dangerous for long periods of the second half at Westfalenstadion and were rewarded with a goal from Neymar but Erling Braut Haaland, who is on a sensational goal scoring spree, took his UEFA Champions League tally for the season to ten with two strikes to stun the traveling Paris fans. The 19-year-old became the first teenager to score 10 goals in a Champions League season, having previously netted eight times for RB Salzburg in six Group E games. With England winger Jadon Sancho and 17-year-old Giovanni Reyna also impressing up front in the opening encounter, Dortmund have a youthful and vibrant forward line playing without fear but the French side are usually much stronger on home turf and the likes of Neymar and Mbappe will look to tear down the Dortmund defence with their immense pace and skills.Watch Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 1 and SONY TEN 1 HD on 12th February 2020 at 1.30 am (IST) Advertisement Liverpool F.C. vs Atletico Madrid– Liverpool welcome Atlético Madrid in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 decider and will look to pull off another famous comeback after losing 1-0 away to Atletico Madrid at a raucous Wanda Metropolitano. Diego Simeone’s men put in a display of trademark resilience once Saúl Ñíguez had given them a fourth-minute lead in the first leg, but still fresh in the memory is the manner in which the Reds incredibly overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit against Barcelona in last season’s semi-finals at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp will hope to rekindle the spirit of that amazing night and will look to start on the front foot from the outset in this return fixture. Atlético holds an advantage, but it’s a tenuous advantage with only a draw needed to qualify. Liverpool on the other hand, must break Diego Simeone’s stalwart defense to keep hope alive of winning the European trophy in successive seasons. Watch Liverpool F.C. vs Atletico Madrid Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HD on 12th March 2020 at 1.30 am (IST) RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C. – If there’s a blueprint for how an underdog team can successfully open a two-legged advantage against a quality club, RB Leipzig showcased it to perfection in the first leg against Spurs in North London. Going into the second leg, RB Leipzig looks to be holding all the aces against an injury-hit Tottenham as they welcome the English team to Germany. Even though the German side looked a lot sharper than Spurs in the first leg, Leipzig are far from convincing on their home ground, losing 2-0 to Lyon at this venue and only drawing 2-2 with Benfica in the group stages. Tottenham have a mountain to climb without injured front men Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, but the form of the home team on their home ground will give them a few moments in the game to get a grip on the tie and qualify for the quarter-finals.Watch RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C.

Five tips to reduce spray drift

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Due to concerns for production costs, safety, and the environment, it is important to maximize the pesticide deposit on the target. One of the major problems challenging pesticide applicators is spray drift, which is defined as movement of pesticides by wind from the application site to an off-target site. Spray drift accounts for about half of all non-compliance cases investigated by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. Spray drift not only result in wasting expensive pesticides and pollution of the environment, it may damage non-target crops nearby, and poses a serious health risk to people living in areas where drift is occurring.Although complete elimination of spray drift is impossible, problems can be reduced significantly if you are aware of major factors that influence drift and take precautions to minimize their influence on off-target movement of droplets. The factors that play a role in either the creation, or reduction of spray drift are: a) Spray characteristics, such as volatility and viscosity of pesticide formulation; b) Equipment and application techniques used for spraying pesticides; c) Weather conditions at the time of application (wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humidity and stability of air around the application site); and most importantly, d) Operator care, attitude, and skill. Here are five cost-effective tips to vegetable producers on how to minimize spray drift. 1. If you can, keep your nozzles as close to the target as possible while still producing a uniform distribution of spray on the target. This doesn’t cost any money as long as it is practical to make it happen.2. When you’re ready to change nozzles, consider selecting nozzles that produce much fewer of the extremely small droplets that are most likely to drift away. Low-drift nozzles are in the market and do a tremendous job of eliminating extremely small, drift-prone droplets from the droplet spectrum.3. There are chemicals sold in the market that are designed to increase the droplet size, and reduce the number of very small droplets when added into the spray mixture. Most of them are some sort of polymer that tends to increase the viscosity and density of the spray mixture which leads to larger droplets. This, however, should be the last defense against drift. First consider the other option such as better targeting of the spray and switching to low-drift nozzles.4. Use shields that cover partially or fully the distance between the target and the nozzles. There are companies manufacturing and selling such attachments to the boom. Shields prevent small droplets from moving away from the immediate application area. This, however, may not be practical for sprayers with extremely large booms.5. If there any any doubts about a spraying job that might result in drift, wait until there is no longer that element of doubt. Always pay attention to wind direction and magnitude. The best investment you can make is to buy a wind meter that tells you how high the wind velocity is at any given time. Having a wind meter handy will help you avoid a costly problem associated with spray drift.More detailed discussion on these tips and other drift reduction strategies are outlined in following OSUE Extension Fact Sheets available online:FABE-525 (http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/fabe-525),FABE- 523 (http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/fabe-523), andFABE 524 (http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/fabe-524). Erdal Ozkan, Professor and Extension agricultural engineer, can be reached at 614-292-3006, or [email protected] This column is provided by the OSU Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, OSU Extension, Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center, and the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.last_img read more

Will vehicle-to-vehicle communication in new cars save lives?

first_imgThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is proposing a new rule which will require automakers to equip all light-duty vehicles to include vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. V2V technologies enable cars to “talk” with each other, alerting their drivers to potential dangers as they arise in traffic.See also:In 2013, there were over 5.9 million crashes on US roadways. These collisions resulted in over 32,700 fatalities. According to the Department of Transportation, many of these accidents and fatalities could be avoided with a more widespread deployment of V2V technologies.See also: Instead of waiting around for the auto industry to phase in these features, or worse to make them a paid upgrade, the NHTSA is proposing a new rule that would make them a requirement on all new light-duty vehicles produced for sale in the US.From the official proposal:The agency believes that V2V has the potential to revolutionize motor vehicle safety. By providing drivers with timely warnings of impending crash situations, V2V-based safety applications could potentially reduce the number and severity of motor vehicle crashes, thereby reducing the losses and costs to society that would have resulted from these crashes.A unique standard to share informationThis new rule isn’t without some merit. Without a standard set of requirements, auto makers are at risk of creating their own proprietary communication systems, each sharing data that isn’t consistent between makes and/or models. This would greatly reduce the effectiveness of this technology as it would limit the number of vehicles that would be able to talk to one-another.By making a regulated standard, vehicles will share information that will enable them to alert each other when danger approaches. A driver would hear an alert in the vehicle when another vehicle is merging into them, and collisions that occur just on the other side of an obstructing truck would be detectable thanks to the information shared with other vehicles in the area.This new regulation will raise questions among privacy advocates. After all, if our vehicles are communicating with one-another, what’s to say that your behavior on the road won’t make its way to the authorities?The information shared between vehicles does not include personally identifiable information. The proposed rule includes privacy-protecting language that ensures that this information remains anonymous and untrackable to the individual.

1aim brings connected devices to workplace doors & beyond

first_imgIn the era of connected technology Berlin company 1aim are carving a niche for themselves in connected security for commercial buildings. I met with Torben Friehe, CEO of 1aim to find out more.1aim builds a complex array of hardware and software for a simple purpose: open any door by waving a smartphone in front of a retrofitted lock instead of needing a key, swipe card or access code. Administrators use a simple app interface to issue digital passes via email or SMS to anyone visiting including non-registered users like guests or contractors.Friehe likens them to “a central nervous system for buildings” explaining that 1aim  has created an enterprise-grade access control system that serves two functions – first, to allow professional access and identity management and, second, to gather large amounts of valuable data to enable companies to identify space usage patterns in their commercial space.Friehe explains that as the company ships more software, customers will be able to use the device to collect and analyze data and perform a suite of tasks to improve cost flows and efficiency, such as arm areas or turn off electricity to reduce utility expenses as employees leave their offices.Other features include allowing users to request conference rooms and automatically provide them with the ideal premises fitting their requirements.“Since our platform knows who is where and when, it will also be able to allocate the right space to every employee on an individual basis and offer strategic work-layout suggestions to optimize operations.”What are the cultural differences when it comes to smart locks in Germany compared to the US?As an expat myself living in Germany I was interested to know the differences in how Deutsch and American people view security and technology. Friehe noted that:“German homeowners would not trust doors that are seen as perfectly safe in America. In Germany, homeowners take enormous pride in the so-called “Resistance Class” that their door fulfills. But most U.S. doors would not even pass the lowest grade of such certification. The same goes for mechanical locks. Many German homeowners purchase high-quality lock cylinders that cost up to a few hundred euro per piece. Although there are security grades in America as well, German consumers have a much wider variety of choices and can select products offering more mechanical security. We have had meet extremely high-security standards in Germany as part of our partnership with the Hormann Group.”Connected security in a crowded space requires complex solutionsConnected security is becoming a crowded space with the involvement of industry stalwarts like Honeywell and Yale. However, the majority are focused on the consumer market and fewer are equipped to respond to the challenges of older commercial buildings. Friehe explains that:“In the building platform space, we see competitors attempting to build a “building operating system,” a software connecting all the hardware in a building. We don’t see this approach as working. Without a strong hardware foundation, there is just no way to connect legacy and modern systems. These companies might be able to supply middleware, but as long as they focus on software alone they will not be able to dominate this space. So our major differentiation point here is that we supply the hardware at the core of our system, providing quality ID-related data.”Friehe also compares questions companies that monitor space utilization using sensor boxes as their hardware, noting that“These companies cannot supply the same data quality that we can provide, as their data is not connected to the ID of users in any way and the number of potential data points is limited.”The company sees the opportunity in the future to team up with companies in the HVAC and energy optimization sector where “We can make good use of their data, and they might require some of ours.”How secure are connected locks?One need only read the agenda of the latest DEFCON or Black Hat conference to know that there will be security researchers showing their prowess in hacking connected home security devices.  Then over the last week, we’ve seen spirited discussion after Amazon revealed they are sealing smart door locks that enable Amazon to deliver packages inside your home with a smart lock and connected camera. Walmart recently offered to deliver groceries straight to people’s fridges with a similar system. When polled about the idea of Amazon in-home delivery three different surveys suggested strong opposition to the idea, perhaps in the spirit of ‘just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.’In regard to security, Friehe believes that:“As an industry, we must guarantee that companies are not developing software to a negligent degree. They need to implement accepted industry practices, which should be enhanced to demand more regular audits when it comes to how data is collected and stored. Companies need to have security in mind and be held accountable if they fail to observe best-practices. This is especially so with connected devices, where extremely personal life data is concerned.Ultimately, the free market will serve as the catalyst for ensuring that security in the IT sector catches pace, but there will be much more bloodshed and massive attacks.”Presently, 1aim’s access control product LightAccess Pro can be purchased on Amazon Germany, UK and France, or by contacting their offices directly.

The defending champs were sloppy again, even forgetting several plays after one timeout and still somehow won — but it has hardly been easy so far.Kevin Durant had 31 points, 11 rebounds and six assists to help rally the Warriors from 18 points down and beat the Wizards 120-117 on Friday night, a game marred by a fight between Green and Washington’s Bradley Beal that led to both being tossed.ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa LATEST STORIES The Warriors are still trying to figure things out, having given up 17 offensive rebounds two nights earlier in holding off the Raptors and also committing 17 turnovers — which they did again Friday.Golden State began 1 for 10 from 3-point range while committing seven turnovers and allowing six 3s by early in the second quarter.
