Los Angeles Renamed A Street After Former President Obama

first_imgLos Angeles has renamed a stretch of road after former President Barack Obama. The street replaced Rodeo Road, a 3 ½-mile street that runs across the city’s historic, mostly black neighborhood.The city said the location is important because the former President had his first campaign rally in Los Angeles on February 20, 2007 at Rancho Cienega Park. The street also intersects with Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and establishes a “presidential row” that includes Washington, Adams and Jefferson boulevards.The name change followed a proposal by City Council President Herb Wesson, and a 15-0 vote by the L.A. City Council in August 2018.last_img read more

Left to lead: As the veteran of SU’s defense, Megill looks to carry on a proud tradition

first_imgThe impact of the hit echoed throughout the Carrier Dome. Seven minutes into the first game of his Syracuse career, Brian Megill proved he belonged out on the field as a starter. The freshman defender drilled Denver’s Alex Drexler along the left sideline, leaving him down on the ground in pain and knocking him out of the game. The crushing hit sent a woozy Drexler wobbling to the sideline with a concussion and officially established Megill as a rising star in college lacrosse. ‘Everybody kind of knew after that hit, this guy’s the real deal and people who didn’t know about him were about to find out because he was able to blow this kid up,’ former SU goaltender John Galloway said. ‘And I’ll never forget it. It was against Denver, and we all kind of looked at each other and felt much more at ease. ‘We knew that this kid wasn’t worried, he wasn’t scared to play and he was going to be special on Syracuse.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Through two years, Megill has lived up to that billing. He went on to start every game during his first year, becoming the first freshman defender to do so under head coach John Desko. And Megill brought that physical presence to a stifling defensive unit that ranked among the best in the country. But now, the junior is expected to do more following the graduation of All-Americans Galloway, John Lade, Joel White and Tom Guadagnolo. As the lone returning starter on defense, it is on Megill’s shoulders to lead the unit and carry on the proud tradition. ‘The last time that I talked to him, I told him that it was his defense now,’ Lade said. ‘He’s got to definitely work harder than any other defenseman in the country, and he’s definitely got to be ready to play some great attackmen.’ His teammates and coaches rave about his work ethic. His intensity and physicality caught their attention immediately during the fall of his freshman year. And Guadagnolo and his former teammates all say the 6-foot, 226-pound Megill is the total package as a defender — strong enough to stop a bull dodger like Denver’s 6-foot-4, 210-pound attack Mark Matthews, but also quick enough to stick with Duke’s Jordan Wolf, a speedy 5-foot-9, 170-pound attack. While Lade and Galloway couldn’t pick out a flaw in the preseason All-American’s game, Megill knows of one glaring weakness that has been there since high school. He’s gotten quicker over the years, but he’s still not quick enough. White could see the frustration on Megill’s face as he chased Cornell attack Rob Pannell around the Carrier Dome field to no avail. With top cover man Lade out with an injury, Pannell torched Syracuse for six points, scoring two of his three goals against Megill in the second quarter as SU fell for the first and only time of the regular season in 2011. ‘I learned a lot,’ Megill said. ‘I learned I was still really slow because Rob Pannell is fast. He’s a great attackman, best I’ve seen in a long, long time.’ With that game in the back of his mind, Megill entered the offseason determined to get faster. His brother, Ray, a former All-American defender at Maryland, had been telling him his footwork needed improvement since high school. But Megill could get by using his superior strength to overpower opponents then and didn’t take his brother’s advice. This past offseason, the agility drills he once ignored became a part of his routine. He kept a speed ladder, cones, parachute and weighted vest in the back of his truck. ‘There’s times where he would just at the most random point in the day, he would just hop up and say, ‘I’m going to go for a run or I’m going to go workout,” Ray Megill said. ‘So he definitely does have a tireless work ethic.’ Megill tested himself even more when he spent part of the summer living with his brother in Rockville, Md. Ray Megill put him through CrossFit workouts, an unconventional fitness program designed to increase endurance and push athletes to their limits. The workouts can be as short as five minutes or as long as an hour. From up-downs and tire flips to box jumps and medicine ball training, the intense sessions were grueling. But Megill was hungry to get better, motivated by his struggles against Pannell last April. ‘I use that game as my drive to workout and to get better because I feel like I can play so much better and do better,’ Megill said. ‘And he’s one of the guys that I think about when I’m working out, that pushes me even harder, that gets me going that when I’m sitting down watching TV, I’m like, ‘I wonder what he’s doing.” That work ethic has defined Megill’s entire Syracuse career. Megill wasn’t highly touted coming out of Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark, N.J., but he separated himself from the rest of his class and forced his way into the discussion for the open starting spot on defense during fall practice. The young defender was a pest, slashing and laying hits on big-time attack Cody Jamieson and Chris Daniello, who had helped the Orange to two straight national titles before he arrived. White remembers Megill injecting life into a dead practice with a big hit or a fast-break goal, telling his teammates through his actions to pick up the intensity. ‘He wasn’t afraid to come across the middle and stir up things even in practice,’ White said. ‘I can definitely remember a couple of times him coming across the middle and laying someone out and really spicing up practice a little bit.’ Through his hustle at practice, Megill earned the respect of his teammates in the locker room. Guadagnolo said the young defender pushed them to get better. He yelled at juniors and seniors if he felt they could go harder — something rarely seen in an underclassman. And Megill also made an impression through his actions in the weight room. Megill was often seen in a full sweat suit on a treadmill overlooking the football weight room as he tried to shed pounds and improve his conditioning. Multiple times, Guadagnolo recalled seeing Megill running after practice when everyone else had already left for the night. ‘Even if he didn’t say something, just other guys seeing him doing it, it would change their perspective on things, and they would start doing it,’ Guadagnolo said. ‘‘Oh man, this guy’s only a sophomore, and he’s working harder than you or he’s working harder than me.’ Guys would be embarrassed, so now we need to start doing it, too.’ His relentless drive struck Galloway during the fall of Megill’s freshman year. In the corner of Wohl Field before a practice, Megill approached the junior goaltender, who could tell the rookie had a lot on his mind. The defender was agonizing over the decision to redshirt or play as a freshman, and he sought advice from Galloway. The quick conversation ended with Galloway giving him a vote of confidence, telling Megill he could earn the starting spot after seeing his aggressive style of play and eagerness to learn. In that moment, Galloway said he first realized Megill would be special. About five months later, his eye-opening hit against Denver proved it. And two years later, the lacrosse world knows his name as one of the top players in the game, just as Galloway predicted. ‘I told people his freshman year, ‘He’s going to go down as one of the best defenders that Syracuse University’s ever had,” Galloway said. ‘His physicality, his stick skills, he just has that special something that you’re looking for in a teammate.’ rjgery@syr.edu Comments Published on February 15, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse enjoys team-building activities instructed by Fort Drum troops

The drills tested the players’ athletic ability, memory, strength and trust and communication among one another.“As a group, we’re trying to be on the same page,” senior linebacker Josh Kirkland said after the activities, “communicating at a high level, just kind of like what we’re trying to do on the football field.”During the cognitive function training, the players had 15 seconds to study a layout of military equipment on a picnic table, including a pair of boots and a backpack. The Fort Drum troop then led the players through a log-lifting exercise before bringing them back to the picnic tables.“I got the boots! I got the boots!” safety Ritchy Desir repeated during his round of what the troops called “Murphies,” a core exercise.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe group then had one minute, using purely memorization, to recreate the layout on another picnic table.Although some players were sure they had perfectly replicated the arrangement, the troops were able to pick out some imperfections, and their attention to detail astounded Kirkland. For the soldiers, the slightest oversight could be the difference between a successful mission and a fatal outcome.“One of the guys was talking about how all the little details go into the work,” Kirkland said, “and how one little mistake can be very detrimental to any soldier in the crew.”At the next station, wood beams, straps and the shortest of the instructing Fort Drum troops awaited the players.The soldier told the players that despite his size, his fellow troops count on him to be capable of carrying just as much weight as they do, and the task he gave the players was a test of strength.The group split into two teams, captained by starting quarterback Terrel Hunt and tight end Kendall Moore. Using at least three of the straps, each individual needed to suspend himself in the air, and the group collectively had to hold it for a minute with each member hoisted off the ground.It took the sides a bit of time to analyze their strategy and figure out how to interlock straps with each other, but Hunt’s finished 30 seconds ahead of Moore’s.The competition among all the groups for the best performances had the players, especially defensive tackle Marcus Coleman, in great spirits at the end of the activities before the team began marching down the street.“I had to show them my athletic abilities, which are very impressive,” a smiling Coleman said, inciting laughter from a group of reporters. “My team is Alpha team, best team out here. We definitely dominated every task we went up against.” Commentslast_img read more

USC College Republicans say #NeverTrump, but #NeverEverHillary

first_img#NeverTrump, but #NeverEverHillary. As a conservative Republican voter, I have always believed in the values of fiscal responsibility, cultural traditionalism and small government. Unfortunately for me and other like-minded voters, neither of the major presidential candidates this election cycle truly embodies any of these values. While it is abundantly clear that Hillary Clinton is an anathema to everything that I hold dear; Donald Trump is also quite lacking in these departments. It goes without saying why I would refrain from voting for Clinton on Nov. 8. She favors further government intervention in the economy, is an embodiment of the establishment status quo and has a record mired in corruption and scandal. What isn’t quite as apparent is my reasoning to not vote for Donald Trump. While I understand that many on the right would find it reasonable to vote for Trump on the basis of saving the Supreme Court or appealing to the lesser of two evils argument, I still cannot support a man who, in my view, would pervert the public’s perception of conservatism for at least a generation should he take office. A man who favors protectionist tariffs and government-run healthcare, while espousing an ambiguous and ill-informed foreign policy, should not be the prime representative of the party of Lincoln and Reagan. In addition to his lack of conservative credentials, he presents a wildly unpopular and repellent face to the party that I would like to see succeed in future elections. It would be quite astounding that the most unpopular presidential nominee in modern history is even in the running to win if it weren’t for the fact that the Democrats nominated their own train wreck of a candidate to represent their side via Hillary Clinton. While not overly controversial to many of his supporters, a good number of Trump’s comments in regard to Latinos, women and Muslims have tainted the Republican brand among many moderates who might have otherwise supported the party. As a millennial Republican, I look toward a new generation of conservatives that empower minority communities to achieve the American Dream and champion women’s successes. It’s elected officials, like Republican California State Assembly member Ling Ling Chang that are taking the lead in promoting STEM education and championing young women to reach their full potential that give me hope for more diversity within our party. It’s time for the Republican Party to shed its skin from the Trump campaign and move toward a new era of Conservatism. In our democracy, one of the greatest fundamental rights is the right to vote. However, within our right to vote is a right to abstain from voting in a presidential election if the electorate believes that neither candidate is suitable. I will not be complicit in falling in line with my party, which maintains that party matters more than principle. In order to bring progress and a new light to our great nation, it is sometimes necessary to divert from the status quo. Whatever the outcome on Nov 8., Nov. 9 begins the dawn of a new era for the Republican Party, one that doesn’t include Donald Trump.Mary Briana-PerezVice President, USC College Republicanslast_img read more

Zengerle UW’s latest member to join 100-point club

first_imgJunior forward Mark Zengerle missed a portion of the season with injury, but has still managed to earn 15 points this season.[/media-credit]One hundred.Every sport has a magic number that all athletes strive to reach – whether it be 300 wins for a pitcher in baseball or 1,000 rushing yards for a running back in a football season – athletes and fans use these benchmarks as a sign that a player has made it.For college hockey that number is 100 career points.On the Wisconsin hockey team, only 70 players had reached that threshold in the sport’s illustrious 50-year career in the modern era heading into 2013.But on Feb. 1 against North Dakota in a hostile Ralph Engelstad Arena, that exclusive club added one more: junior Mark Zengerle.The goal, which came 13 seconds after a goal by UND, couldn’t have come at a more important moment, and it helped the Badgers rally to earn a hard-fought 1-1 tie in one of the toughest venues in college hockey.“Our talk on the bench, ‘let’s respond’,” head coach Mike Eaves said of the one goal deficit said after the game. “That is the best response we can get by going out and scoring right away.”The point itself wasn’t that pretty – a fact that a humble Zengerle is the first to admit.“It really wasn’t too much on my part,” Zengerle said. “I just kinda got my stick in there behind the net in the corner and the garbage man [Michael Mersch] over here did the rest.”And yet it seemed fitting that a player who has made a career mostly on his ability to facilitate his teammates’ goal scoring – earning at least 30 assists in each of his first two seasons, which put him in elite company with only three other Badgers – earned it in such a way.“My parents were in town last weekend [for the game] and my mom was like, ‘You have to get it on a goal,’ but whatever, I don’t really care … I’m more of an assist man anyways so it kinda made sense, but it would have been nicer to have a goal,” he said.More unfortunate, however, was the fact that the Rochester, N.Y., native’s shining moment came while the Badgers were visiting bitter-rival North Dakota and not at home in the Kohl Center.Instead of a raucous round of applause in front of a friendly set of Wisconsin fans clad in cardinal and white, Zengerle’s accomplishment went largely unnoticed at UND – save a few congratulations from his teammates after the game – and Zengerle didn’t draw attention to it.“I congratulated him [after the game], I think everyone did,” junior winger Michael Mersch said. “It’s a huge individual statistic – great for him – but he was pretty humble about it.”When an athlete reaches one of these well-established milestones, it can be easy to forget the road that brought them there, but 100 points didn’t come easy for the junior. Zengerle had to overcome considerable adversity in the early part of the season to even put himself in the position to go into the Wisconsin hockey record books as a 100-point scorer.When the season began, and as the Badgers faltered out of the gates – losing their first seven out of 10 games – Zengerle was off to the races recording two goals and four assists in the first five games of the season to lead the Badgers in scoring.With 86 points already recorded over his freshman and sophomore seasons at UW, and six points at that point in 2012-13, Zengerle’s career total of 92 points placed him just eight shy of 100.For Badger fans, whether or not he would reach 100 points never seemed in doubt, but rather people wondered how quickly it would be done, and in his form, it seemed that would’t be too far off.But that was all before Colorado College came to town Nov. 3 and 4.Following a loss in the opening game of the series on Friday 5-4 in overtime, a freak play in which Zengerle attempted to block a CC player’s shot in game two resulted in a broken index finger for the UW’s center.After sitting out the next six games – a period in which the Badgers earned just a single win – Zengerle finally made his return against Michigan Tech Dec. 2 still sitting eight points short. Despite his highly anticipated return, he wasn’t able to pick up where he left off at the beginning of the season offensively, earning zero points in his first two games back.But it is at times like these the greatest players perform at their best, and that is just what Zengerle did.Over his next 10 games, Zengerle would go on to score seven points in the run up to his 100th point Feb. 1 in Grand Forks, N.D, helping the Badgers climb back into the WCHA title race along the way.Now with the milestone reached, it might have been easy for Zengerle to take his foot off the gas pedal – even if subconsciously – but for UW’s key offensive man it was never about how many goals and assists he could rack up.“If someone had told me five years ago that I would score 100 points at Wisconsin, I would probably have laughed and said, ‘yeah right, in my dreams’,” Zengerle said. “But it’s pretty cool, some of the players that have reached that, and a lot of them have played in the NHL.”Soon enough, the undrafted NHL prospect may just get an opportunity to join those UW 100-point earners to come before him in the league. But for now Wisconsin’s offensive maestro is happy to continue making his teammates look good – one goal at a time.last_img read more

Football: Wisconsin hits the road to tackle Nebraska

first_imgAlthough there is chaos surrounding the Nebraska athletic department, the University of Wisconsin football team is taking off to combat a strong Cornhuskers team for their second away game of the season.There has been a lot of controversy in Nebraska after former Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst was fired last week, apparently for not allowing the Nebraska program for being “competitive enough.” Nebraska is still in search of an AD, and there is a fair amount of chaos surrounding the team right now.Wisconsin football struggles against Northwestern, still squeaks out winUsually, taking a week off bodes well for teams, but the University of Wisconsin football team came back from their Read…Nebraska, despite what the claim seems to be in Lincoln, has been managing to do fairly well for themselves this season, achieving a 3-2 record so far this year. The only two teams that Nebraska has managed to lose against have been Oregon and Northern Illinois.Aside from those two losses, Nebraska has managed to earn wins against Arkansas State, Rutgers and Illinois — even though only one of those games happened in Lincoln. Nebraska has been a solid team this year, despite all of the chaos that is surrounding their team.Nebraska is also coming off of a solid win against Illinois, in which the Cornhuskers managed to down the Illini 28-6. Nebraska is showing signs of improvement and are sure to be a fearsome opponent for the Badgers.Wisconsin is coming off their fourth win of the season, managing to defeat Northwestern by a grand total of 33-24. Wisconsin is undefeated thus far this season, with many already naming the Badgers the West champion in the Big Ten.It is still unknown whether or not the Badgers will be without star tight end Troy Fumagalli Saturday, with Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst saying it is likely that Fumagalli will see action against the Cornhuskers. Fumagalli missed his first game in almost two years, his first since gaining the starting position back in 2015.Wisconsin still managed to defeat Northwestern without Fumagalli, but his absence on the field was noticed throughout the game. Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook — who tends to favor Fumagalli as his number one receiver — noticed some missing coverage in the middle of the field during Saturday’s game.Hornibook shows quarterback capabilities against BYU, Badgers grow stronger than everThe University of Wisconsin football team ended their non-conference season in a spectacular fashion against BYU, in large part thanks Read…While Chryst said after Saturday’s game that Fumagalli was almost healthy enough to play, he is still listed as “questionable” for Saturday’s game. After suffering a lower-leg injury almost a week ago, it is likely that Wisconsin will gain their star tight end back by the time they touch ground in Lincoln.Wisconsin and Nebraska take the field Saturday at 7 p.m. Fans who can not head out to Nebraska can catch the game on BTN Plus or listen to it on Badgers Sports Radio.last_img read more
