Coates backs under-fire Pulis

By on September 21, 2020

first_imgStoke chairman Peter Coates understands the fans’ negative reaction to recent results, but insists the club are continuing to progress under manager Tony Pulis. Press Association The Potters have won only one of their last nine Barclays Premier League contests and some sections of fans have vented their frustration toward Pulis. But Coates believes recent performances have not been as bad as results would indicate. “We are clearly having a bad run and not playing well but I think these are fine margins,” he told the Stoke Sentinel. center_img “We did enough in the second half at Fulham to get something out of the game and I didn’t think we deserved to lose against West Ham. “If your team is not doing well, your crowd gets restive. It’s no different in Stoke than anywhere else.” But Coates added: “Our current squad is the best we’ve had and to me that represents progress. “He (Pulis) has been here seven years and I think fair-minded Stoke supporters would think they were seven good years. “Our worst finish in the Premier League has been 14th. We would like to finish higher, but this is a highly-competitive game and we are playing in the toughest league in the world.” last_img read more

Office of the provost displays student art

By on September 17, 2020

first_img“I will have a departure from the art fields … and head into more behind the scenes in terms of operations because I am fond of the organizational systems,” Dinh said. “But I may start leaning into more PR and e-commerce stuff, which I previously did this past summer in textile fashion production.” “As an institution, our museums are recognized as having the best standards and practices when it comes to attracting and exhibiting the finest artwork in the world,” Zukoski said. “I believe it’s equally important to curate artwork from our own student artists.” Each academic year, a representative from the provost’s team chooses a student’s art exhibit from the USC Fisher Museum of Art to be featured in their office, taking great care in deciding which art will be displayed and choosing a piece that will send a positive message to students on the importance of displaying student artwork and appreciating the work of USC students. Zukoski said the decision to have a student’s work displayed in his office comes from a desire to represent their student body and their ability to create unique pieces of art. “I am instantly inspired when I come into my office and see student artwork,” Zukoski said. “It serves as a daily reminder for why I am here — for why we as faculty members are all here. It’s to support these brilliant students of ours.” “We [were] looking for pieces that are relevant, dynamic and empowering: Brian Dinh’s artwork embodies all of those elements and more,” Zukoski wrote in an email statement to the Daily Trojan. Zukoski endorsed the decision to display a student’s artwork. He said he feels that it adds value to the office by showcasing the artistic skills of USC students. Dinh said that having the first artwork he’s created on display was bittersweet since the work represents a stage of his artistic journey that has come to a close as he has begun to “loosen” his artistic style. Provost Charles Zukoski sends a representative to the student art display every year to select work that will be hung in his office, reminding him of the students at the core of his work. (Vincent Leo | Daily Trojan) As for Dinh’s future plans post-college, he hopes to continue pursuing art but wants to change his field of interest. center_img “It’s a work that encapsulates the beginning of something that I’m moving away from,” Dinh said. “I don’t produce that kind of work anymore. So does that mean my work is less valuable [compared to today’s work]?” Dinh, a senior majoring in fine arts with an emphasis in oil painting, had his first oil painting “Dream Beam” featured in Zukoski’s office. The painting depicts a boat on the water’s surface with fish swimming underneath the surface of the flowing water. Since August, Provost Charles Zukoski’s office has been home to vibrant paintings of still life and portraits. They’re pieces from throughout senior Brian Dinh’s art career, ranging from his high school artwork to the end of his senior year of college. In addition, Zukoski hopes the artwork will send a message to students that the work they create holds value. Dinh, who will graduate in May, currently works as an office administrator at the Fisher Museum of Art — an experience that he said has piqued his curiosity about museum operation. “I went to a performing arts high school, so everyone there pretty much had their own gifts to bring to the table,” Dinh said. “[At USC] I feel like the disparity between that has been a setback in terms of challenging yourself creatively when there’s not a lot of people who feel as creative as you do.” “Art is essential to education: It creates a culture of thought that moves, inspires and transforms people,” Zukoski said. “Contemporary art created by our own students at this very specific time in history has something to say about our current culture and world, and I think it’s worth listening to by placing it in our offices, schools and maybe even someday our museums.” Dinh felt that the biggest setback for him artistically is that many students in his art classes tend to be from non-art majors and are in the class to relax, while Dinh himself is passionate about the subject. last_img read more

Rose Hill upsets Mulvane 28-22; Wellington can take district with Ulysses

By on August 14, 2020

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Class 4A Division 1 District 7 has officially become the craziest district in Kansas. Tonight, Rose Hill upset Mulvane 28-22.What does that mean? Wellington can now win this district with a victory in Ulysses. It can make the playoffs provided it loses by 10 points or less.Mulvane and Rose Hill played on a Thursday. The Rockets would win to improve to 1-2. Mulvane would fall to 1-2. This means if Wellington wins over Ulysses that would put the Crusaders at 2-1 tied with the Tigers at 2-1. But that would give Wellington the tiebreaker because it would have the head-to-head victory over Ulysses. If Wellington loses, it can get the district runner-up provided it is not a blowout. It has to lose by 10 points or less. If it loses by 11 points or more, then Mulvane goes.Kansas district play is set up in such a weird way that Rose Hill was leading with less than two minutes to play 28-15. Normally, the Rockets would just take a knee. But the Rockets were at -33 points and had to a 20+ victory over Mulvane. Instead they were sacked three times, Mulvane got the ball at midfield and would score with 45 seconds to go on a 40-yard pass play.So that ended Rose Hill’s chances of the playoffs.Wellington has extra incentive Friday night. If it can win district it can get the first round playoff game at home and avoid a trip on the road against a mammoth opponent from District 8.Sumner Newscow will have live tweets from Ulysses.Go Crusaders!The following are the updated District points: Close Forgot password?

Powered by Firework An own goal in added time cost Bangalore United the win against South UnitedAdvertisement South United FC played Football Club Bangalore United in their final game of the season at Bengaluru Football Stadium. Both teams hoped to end their season on a winning note, it wasn’t the case as the game ended whole square at 1-1.Advertisement  The battle in midfield was close with both the teams intercepting crucial passes to prevent the other from progressing the play. While Ajay led much of the attacking play for South United and they probably had the best chance of the first half, neither side could gain the advantage in the first 45 minutes.Advertisement Both the teams came into the second half with better all-round play. They started to make inroads into the opposition box. South United FC got the first breakthrough when Hardik Bhat put the ball in his own net from Vikram’s cross at the end of a lovely forward run.FCBU continued to attack even after the goal was conceded and got their reward for it. A long ball was headed past a charging keeper by Amey Bhatkal. Their equaliser came in the 59th minute, less than 10 minutes after South United had gained the lead.SUFC brought on Aaron later in the game hoping to find 3 points for the team, but the forward couldn’t make a dent in the scoreline. Again, Vikram had a good chance as he volleyed a shot towards goal but the FCBU goalkeeper was alert to the threat and parried in time to keep the score level.South United FC’s good run towards the end of the season had a tame ending as they finished it with a 1-1 draw. Nonetheless, they will take positives from the game as they start to prepare for next season.South United FC 1-1 FC Bangalore United (Hardik Bhat [OG] 51’, Amey Bhatkal 59’) Advertisementlast_img read more
