(Photo: PAUL GOTHAM/Pickin’ Splinters)By PAUL GOTHAMCredit Will Graupman with good timing.Pittsford Sutherland’s senior defender connected on his first career varsity goal in what would be the eventual game winner, and the Knights went on to beat the Wayne Eagles, 2-0 in Class A2 semi-final action Tuesday night at Penfield High School.Graupman redirected a John Mozrall corner kick from the right flag to snap a scoreless tie in the second half.“We just made hard runs,” Graupman explained. “There were guys going to the near post and the back post. I crept in the back post and no one was guarding me so I just headed it in.”The tally was also a first of sorts for the Sutherland squad.“We haven’t scored on a header off a cross yet this season,” Sutherland coach Sean Hopkins noted. “For him to do that in this game was great. We never score off corner kicks.”The shutout was the second straight for Sutherland and fifth overall this season. One year after giving up 33 goals and being eliminated in the quarter-finals, the Knights have trimmed their goals against to 23 as they head into Friday’s final.Will Graupman scored the eventual game winner in the 45th minute. (Photo: PAUL GOTHAM/Pickin’ Splinters)“Our defense has come to play,” Hopkins said mentioning the efforts of Graupman, Ryan Morabito, Jonah Pierce, Jake Petrone and goalkeeper Alex Oleyyourryk. “They’ve just been so tight marked and winning 50/50 balls which we weren’t doing. They basically said we’re not giving up goals like we did last year. They’ve really stepped up for us.”Mozrall followed Graupman less than three minutes later with an insurance goal – his team-leading 14th marker of the season.“He’s taken it on himself that he’s going to score and he’s going to put people in position to score,” Hopkins said of his senior midfielder. “We talk about it all the time how we’re going to miss him so much. He just does the right things on the field. He never gets down on his teammates, always keeps pumping them up. He always works. He’s got that motor.”Wayne had its chances in the first half.Matt Gentile’s direct kick from 35 yards out fooled Oleyyourryk, and the senior keeper was forced to make a diving save in which he struggled to corral the rebound. The Eagles James Flannery was there in the goal mouth for a point blank blast that Oleyyourryk turned away.“He has been unbelievable,” Hopkins said of his keeper. “He has single-handedly kept us in a few games this year.”With the win Sutherland moves on to meet three-time champion Honeoye Falls-Lima in Friday’s final. HF-L defeated Sutherland (10-7-1) earlier in the season 3-2. Sutherland fell to HF-L in the 2015 final, 2-1.“It wouldn’t be a sectional if we didn’t play HF-L,” Graupman said.  “That’s who I want to beat. We lost to them two years ago when I was a sophomore in overtime. They’re who we have to beat.”The Cougars (16-2-0), ranked No. 12 in the most recent NYS Class A poll, needed overtime to beat Aquinas, 1-0 in the earlier semi-final.Sutherland last won a sectional title in 2007 when the Knights beat Aquinas for the Class A crown.“It always feels good to get a chance to play for a ‘block,’” Hopkins said referring to the sectional trophy.A 7:30 p.m. kickoff is scheduled Friday at Hilton High School’s LeBeau Field.  Class A2, Penfield High School, post, Wayne Eagles Graupman gives Sutherland its chance to play for a “Block” added by Paul Gotham on October 24, 2017View all posts by Paul Gotham →FacebookTwitter分享by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksSponsor ContentBig Data Courses | Search AdOnline Big Data Courses Might Be Better than You ThinkBig Data Courses | Search AdCosmoWomensTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldCosmoWomensLovely&HealthyTop 10 Most Dangerous Cruises In The World Lovely&Healthyby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksMore from Pickin’ SplintersBaron keeps Bonaventure close to his heart – Pickin’ SplintersTah-Jae Hill, Zion Morrison and the Starting Five – Pickin’ Splinters”If you had a Mount Rushmore of MCC baseball, he’s on there.” Longtime assistant Jack Christensen passes away – Pickin’ Splinters Subscribe by Email Graupman gives Sutherland its chance to play for a “Block” last_img read more

How to celebrate Data Privacy Day

first_imgby. Jim BenleinTake some time tomorrow to consider how you’re protecting member informationWhile not celebrated with a day off, deep discounts or special sales, Data Privacy Day is (or should be) an important event in your credit union’s calendar.Observed annually on Jan. 28, Data Privacy Day marks an international effort by leading privacy organizations and champions to educate and empower individuals to understand and protect their digital data and privacy. Led by the National Cyber-Security Alliance, Data Privacy Day started in the United States and Canada in 2008 to mark and expand on the Data Protection Day celebrated in Europe. For credit unions, Data Privacy Day notes an important aspect and critical objective of credit union operations: maintaining and protecting the privacy of member and CU information.Take some time tomorrow to mark the day by considering the following best practices as noted in Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development’s 2013 release of its Privacy Framework:Limited CollectionAny data collected should be done fairly, lawfully and, where appropriate, with the knowledge and consent of the individual. More than just requiring the credit union to abide by applicable laws and regulations (such as the FACT Act and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), the first part of this principle notes the importance of obtaining information “fairly.” All above board, nothing “on the sly.” If you collect contact information from non-members that later may be used to market to them, you need to disclose this. If you use cookies to gather information on your website, you should disclose this and explain how the collected information is used. (Note: This is a legal requirement for CUs operating in the European Union.)Quality DataCollected data should be accurate, relevant, necessary, and kept up to date. Additionally, your credit union needs to ensure data is entered (manually or electronically) into computer systems correctly and free from errors. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

LARSO Works With UNM-LA On Internship Program

first_imgAs student and mentor work together to create projects and set goals, it was decided that a more formal introduction might be best. Trujillo has a great background studying criminal justice and a wealth of experience. It was decided that he could share his studies and perhaps some history, as a way to bridge an introduction. He will do that next week, with a brief presentation, called, “People Not Prisons,” followed by a question and answer session. Lunch is available to the community, at 11:30 a.m. for just $10, but reservations must be made before 10 a.m. that day. Chef Ortiz and Remi Rand will be preparing chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, mixed vegetables with a wheat roll, strawberries for dessert, beverages and salad bar are included in the cost. Lunch is served daily from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and reservations can be made 24 hours a day, at 505.662.8920. Guests are asked to leave the name for each person eating and a contact phone number. While the time period has been only a few weeks, Trujillo has welcomed immersion in the areas of presentation, communication and fundraising, while learning about servant leadership. He will work with the senior centers through early December. LARSO is engaging student intern, Fernando Trujillo, into the world of senior services. “Work, Learn, Earn,” is the UNM-LA program motto, and he has hit the ground running. The project-based internship allows for classroom and real-world experience involving time management, communication and business skills. The project has worked to highlight service areas, allowing the student to work in areas of interest. His work as a board member of the ACLU’s Juvenile Justice Advisory Board for Smart Justice, is the spark for the focus of a presentation 11-11:30 a.m., Tuesday at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. LARSO News: The Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization is working with the University of New Mexico Los Alamos campus, on the Community Internship Collaboration. “Our project is working on smart criminal justice reform that puts forth a people not prisons mentality within society, through engaging and educating the community and politicians,” Trujillo said. “When the legislature is in session, we advocate for policies that have the safety of the public in mind, the humane treatment of people stuck in the system, and to challenge the abuses of the system.” One goal is to educate the community on the importance of relationships and second chances. last_img read more

AGU: Last Arctic Ice Refuge Disappearing

first_img“Eventually the Last Ice Area will be the region that will repopulate the Arctic with wildlife,” Moore said. “If we lose all the ice, we lose those species. This area will be a refuge where species can survive and hopefully expand their regions once the ice starts returning.” For wildlife who rely on sea ice for survival, the Last Ice Area offers a sanctuary, and is the final place they can retreat to in a warming world. Understanding how the Last Ice Area changes throughout the year could help pinpoint which spots are best suited to provide a refuge for wildlife who are dependent on sea ice, according to the study’s authors. “We can’t treat the Last Ice Area as a monolithic area of ice which is going to last a long time,” said Kent Moore, an atmospheric physicist at the University of Toronto in Canada and lead author of the new study. “There’s actually lots of regional variability.” This lack of knowledge prompted Moore and his colleagues to track changes in the Last Ice Area. In the new study, the team modeled sea ice cover, thickness and motion across the zone from 1979 to 2018. Their model, based on satellite observations and atmospheric data, revealed two regions with distinct seasonal and inter-annual fluctuations – one to the east and one to the west. Climate models predict Arctic summers will soon be ice-free – perhaps as early as 2030 – meaning less than 1 million square kilometers (386,000 square miles) of summer sea ice will blanket the Arctic Ocean. Arctic warming has already created an environment which leads to younger sea ice. Watch a visualization of the age of Arctic sea ice over time here. A new study in AGU’s journal Geophysical Research Letters finds ice in the Arctic Ocean north of Greenland is more mobile than previously thought, as ocean currents and atmospheric winds are likely transporting the old, thick ice found there to other parts of the Arctic. As a result, ice mass in the area – the last place researchers think will lose its year-round ice cover – is declining twice as fast as ice in the rest of the Arctic, according to the new findings. New research finds the Arctic’s oldest and thickest ice is more mobile and is vanishing twice as fast as ice in the rest of the Arctic. Courtesy/NOAA WASHINGTON, D.C. — The oldest and thickest Arctic sea ice is disappearing twice as fast as ice in the rest of the Arctic Ocean, according to new research. Most ice covering the Arctic is only one to four years old, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. As thin, young ice melts in future summers, only a 2,000-kilometer (1,240-mile) arc of ice will remain, stretching from the western Canadian Arctic Archipelago to Greenland’s northern coast. In this slice of the Arctic, which experts call the Last Ice Area, sea ice is more than five years old and can measure more than four meters (13 feet) thick. “Historically, we thought of this place as an area that just receives ice,” said David Barber, an Arctic climatologist from the University of Manitoba in Canada who was not involved in the new study. “But these results are teaching us that this is a dynamic area.” Places with less ice movement, for example, may provide more suitable conditions for a wildlife sanctuary, as the ice will remain longer. The new study presents context for policymakers to consider when they establish protected areas in the Arctic, Moore said. AGU News: In both regions, sea ice was thinner and covered less area in the summer and early fall than in the Arctic winter, though ice thickness in the west tended to hit its minimum earlier in the season. Ice motion in the eastern portion of the Last Ice Area appeared to be more stable. Western ice – controlled by winds blowing clockwise – has begun moving faster, which could be the result of thinning ice. The Last Ice Area is home to the Arctic’s oldest and thickest ice because ocean currents and atmospheric winds carry patches of floating ice in a circular pattern. These blocks of ice crash into each other and pile up along the northern edges of Greenland and Canada. Researchers, however, know little about how ice in this region moves and melts during the year. According to Moore, the loss of ice in the Last Ice Area is likely due to ice movement out of the region, particularly in the west. If sea ice is thinner and moving faster, pieces at the margins will flow first into the open ocean, followed by larger bits from the center, like a big traffic jam. The new research suggests the Last Ice Area is a dynamic place encompassing two sub-regions where ice thickness fluctuates by 1.2 meters (4 feet) from year to year. Ice is becoming thinner in two distinct subregions, which are losing 0.4 meters (1.3 feet) of ice thickness per decade, amounting to a 1.5-meter (5 foot) loss of ice since the late 1970s, according to the new study.
