Syracuse legend Floyd Little said his grandson will wear No. 44 if he plays football for the Orange.“He’s preparing to wear the number,” Little said. “I knew that the number would at least be coming back for Blaze, so it’s temporarily retired. So the only thing I know is my grandson is going to be wearing that number. He can’t wear it if it’s retired.”In an interview Monday with The Daily Orange, Little said he feels the No. 44 is a tradition — it’s part of the school’s zip code and its phone systems. The jersey was retired into the rafters nearly 10 years ago, on Nov. 12, 2005 during an on-field pregame ceremony attended by several former football players who wore No. 44.In May, there was renewed discussion about the status of the jersey after a press conference was held and it was announced “the No. 44 is back.” However days later, the university said the status of the number hadn’t changed.Little said he personally thinks that the university wanted to retire the numbers of players such as Larry Csonka and Donovan McNabb, but said he feels it maybe couldn’t retire those until it retired No. 44.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLittle said his grandson, Blaze, is 10 or 11 years old now. Little said he gave his grandson the helmet and jersey he received during the ceremony held on Nov. 12, 2005.He added that his grandson is practicing everyday and has seen all of Little’s film from his time with the Denver Broncos. Little said he thinks his grandson might be playing “with three fingers in the dirt,” — referencing how he could be a lineman — but added that Blaze told him he’s getting ready.“He can’t wear 44 with three fingers in the dirt,” Little said with a laugh.

Not that it should be surprising since the Lakers lost seven of their past eight games. That included a defeat three days earlier to the NBA’s worst team in the New York Knicks, prompting Lakers coach Byron Scott to call his team “soft” and selfish.”“It doesn’t bother me. I could care less one way or the other. It’s not my team,” Scott said about Atlanta resting its players. “Once you get to the point where everything is solidified, then why not rest some guys and get them ready for the playoffs.”The Lakers will not enjoy that typical luxury. So they have shifted focus toward developing their talent. They experienced mixed success in that assessment. First, the good. Lakers forward Ryan Kelly posted a team-leading 13 points albeit on 5-of-12 shooting. Lakers guard Jabari Brown added nine points on 4-of-5 shooting in his second NBA game after starring all season with the Lakers’ Development League affiliate, the D-Fenders. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Lakers’ free fall has taken them to unforeseen heights. They have plummeted in the Western Conference standings. They have too many injuries to count. They will miss the NBA playoffs and instead become a contestant in the draft lottery for the second consecutive year. Yet, the Lakers experienced another low in an otherwise uneventful 91-86 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday at Staples Center. The Hawks (52-14) seemed so unthreatened about the Lakers (17-48) that they rested three of their starters, including two All-Stars. Atlanta sat guard Jeff Teague, forward Paul Millsap and forward DeMarre Carroll. All-Star guard Kyle Korver also lasted only 10 minutes after suffering a broken nose at the mercy of Lakers forward Ed Davis inadvertently elbowing him on an offensive foul. But those absences hardly mattered when the Lakers only shot 40 percent from the field and the Hawks’ Dennis Schroder (24 points) and Al Horford (21 points) seemed unstoppable. Then, the bad. The Lakers struggled with their shooting accuracy, most notably from Wayne Ellington (2 of 11), Jordan Hill (3 of 10) and Jordan Clarkson (4 of 13). Though Clarkson recorded a near triple-double with 10 points, a career-high eight rebounds and six assists, his shooting clip marked the second consecutive game he shot below 50 percent.“This is great for him. He needs to keep learning as he goes along each day as he goes along in this league and what people will do against him,” Scott said about Clarkson, who earned praise for his practice preparation. “The best thing about the kid is when he falls, he gets back up. He doesn’t lay down. He gets back up and keeps playing hard.”Clarkson showed that when he set up Carlos Boozer for a jumper that cut the Hawks’ lead to 84-80 with 1:03 remaining. After Horford made one of two fouls hots, Wesley Johnson drilled a corner 3-pointer that cut the Hawks’ lead to 85-83 with 30.1 seconds left. But then Schroder drove past Clarkson for a left-handed layup to extend the Hawks’ cushion to 87-83 with 13.9 seconds left. Moments later, the Hawks secured the victory, handing the Lakers another loss that leaves their upset against Atlanta five months ago a distant memory.

Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.Â Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicinesâ€”flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trashâ€”both pose potential safety and health hazards.For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the September 26 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Office ofÂ Diversion Control site or visit the City of Wellington website as www.cityofwellington.net.Follow us on Twitter.
Over 100 of the country’s finest golfers will head for Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Lancashire to contest the 2012 English women’s amateur championship, from May 15-17. The course – the setting for memorable editions of The Open and the Women’s British Open – will stage a new-look event. This year, for the first time, the championship will have a 72-hole stroke play format. The local challenge will be led by Kelly Tidy (picture © Leaderboard Photography), a Royal Birkdale member who, as 2010 British champion, also played in the Women’s British Open on the course. Kelly, who will represent GB&I in the Curtis Cup in June, is used to the mixture of local pressure and support. “People do expect you to do well at home and there is that added pressure,” she said. “But you feel comfortable at home and the members here are very supportive.” Kelly is one of a number of high-profile players in a top-quality field. Among the other competitors are Lauren Taylor (Woburn) who is the British champion and BBC Young Sports personality of the Year, Holly Clyburn (Woodhall Spa) also a member of the 2012 Curtis Cup team, and Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak), one of the team reserves. There’s a host of champions taking part, including past titleholders Hannah Barwood of Gloucestershire, Emma Brown of Yorkshire and Kerry Smith of Hampshire, alongside reigning English mid-amateur champion Claire Smith, also of Yorkshire. Younger players are represented by English U13 champion Sammy Fuller of Surrey and U15 titleholder Gabriella Cowley of Essex, while Christine Watson of Buckinghamshire is a past English senior champion. Lancashire is providing a total of 19 players, among them girl internationals Emily Taylor and Brogan Townend (both Royal Lytham & St Annes) and Nikki Foster (Pleasington), who has also represented England. Neighbouring Cheshire provides another seven players including Charlotte Wild (Mere), a former English strokeplay champion, and Rachael Goodall (Heswall), who tied fifth in last week’s Helen Holm Scottish Open stroke play. The full field will play 18 holes on each of Tuesday and Wednesday, 15 and 16 May. The field will then be cut to the top 36 players and ties who will play the final 36 holes on Thursday, 17 May. 3 May 2012 Top-class field for English championship at Royal Birkdale
NOTES: Winning owner Deron Pearson who campaigns as DP Racing, is from Valencia. MIKE SMITH, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “I was able to get her to relax early and she can be on the rank side. Sometimes, going into a race where there’s not much pace, everyone thinks the same thing and it worked out that way today. We took advantage.“I got a clear trip today. I’ve been handcuffed the last few times I’ve been on her, with traffic in front of me and never had a clear path. I got her out in the clear today and it was great.“I think she can go short or long. She’s already shown she can run down the hill and she has such a turn of foot. When she crosses that dirt, I’m sure she explodes. I didn’t get to ride her down the hill, but I think she can go a mile, a mile and a sixteenth as well. As long as you get her covered up and keep her turned off.” TRAINER QUOTES JIM CASSIDY, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “We had her in the hill race last week but it came off the grass due to weather. She’s trained so well into this race.“She trained well going into that hill race but then, her work after that didn’t go was tremendous; over the top good. I worried about that a little but she was fine. She’s a tough girl. She can be tricky. We’ve had to do a lot of different things with her and she’s just been happier lately. We’ve been working her from the gate and she seems to like that.“She’s somethin’ else.” DERON PEARSON, OWNER, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “She finally got the trip that she needed. Mike rode her perfectly. I think she got the ground that she wanted and it worked out well.“These graded races are always difficult to win. There’s always a tough horse and usually tough to get a good trip. I was a little concerned the pace was too slow, but she’s got the best kick of any of these horses in the race and she showed it today.” JOCKEY QUOTES
What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#mobile#NYT#web audrey watters Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology The survey shows wide disparities among immigrant groups about whether or not they would buy a tablet in the near future. Interestingly, although French Americans ranked the highest in terms of tablet ownership, only 34% said they were looking to buy one – putting them last among the different demographics surveyed. Ghanese and Indian Americans topped the list with 62% and 58% respectively indicating that they do plan to buy a tablet soon. Across the board, all demographics surveyed listed the iPad as their tablet of choice.Amazon’s Kindle was the popular second choice as a tablet device, with 9% of those surveyed saying they’re likely to buy one. Ethiopian immigrants expressed the most interest in the Kindle, with 24% saying they’re likely to buy one.The results of the survey, say Andres Bernstrom, CEO of Rebtel, point to a shifting brand identification. “Apple has remained the brand of choice for the immigrant and first generation U.S. market,” he says. “We’re witnessing a massive shift in technology brand affinity over the past decade as Sony has been dethroned, and Apple has grabbed the reigns and held tight starting with the iPod moving forward.”But if these numbers are accurate, they don’t simply mark immigrants’ brand identification and affinity with Apple. A recent Pew Internet and American Life Project study on Americans and their gadgetry found far lower adoptions rates, in general, of tablets. According to its figures, just 4% of Americans own tablets and 5% own e-readers. That’s substantially lower than the 13% in the Rebtel survey. The Rebtel survey doesn’t give any indication of why immigrants would gravitate to tablets at a higher rate. Size? Mobility? Cost? Internet access? Related Posts Mobile VOIP company Rebtel has released results from its latest study on U.S. immigrant consumer mobile usage and behavior. According to its findings, 13% of those who responded said they currently own a tablet device, representing approximately five million Americans.According to the survey, the iPad remains the tablet of choice for immigrants, with two-thirds of current tablet owners indicating they own iPads. According to the survey, French Americans are the highest percentage of tablet owners (17%), followed by Mexican-Americans (15%).
The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Facebook Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification markhachman At the end of 2011, Facebook began adding “Sponsored Stories,” or ads, to the News Feed. Of late, the company has been asking users to pay to promote their posts, on the order of $7 or so for ordinary users. Things came to a head earlier this week, when Nick Bilton of the New York Times essentially accused Facebook of encouraging a pay-to-play scheme. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also said he had been encouraged to pay Facebook to increase the number of people who would see his posts.At the time, Facebook denied the charges, saying its algorithms have made recent attempts to focus more on higher-quality stories, and that engagement was actually up for social media figures with more than 10,000 followers.Somewhat surprisingly, the topic didn’t come up during the main question-and-answer session at Facebook’s rollout of the new News Feed at its Menlo Park headquarters on Thursday. But Facebook executives said privately that the new “Following” feed solves the problem.Facebook: The Pay-To-Play Problem Is Solved“At a high level, we’re trying to help each person to get exactly the posts they want, and that differs from person to person,” Christopher Cox, vice president of product at Facebook, said in an interview. “The tricky part for Pages and content publishers on a large scale is that on the one hand, [there’s] too much page spam in my feed, and on the other hand, I want everybody to see every post I have. And those two things are irreconcilable.”“What we’re trying to do is move the front page forward in a way that minimizes the amount of spam people feel they’re getting, but also helps publishers increase their audience,” Cox said. “The nice thing is that with the Following feed is that you’re going to have a place where people can go and check out the people that they’re following. And it will be easier for a journalist to say, ‘You want to see my stuff? Go here.’”As Cox said publicly, the main News Feed will also include posts from people and publishers that a user has historically engaged with. “So if you typically click on a lot of Thomas Friedman posts, you’ll still see a lot of Thomas Friedman,” Cox said.Placing publishers, friends, “close friends”, and others in their own feeds is certainly reminiscent of another social network, Google+, which uses the concept of user-grouped “Circles” to organize what its users see. Facebook’s new Feeds are a step back in the direction of algorithmic choice, in that Facebook is still deciding what content to surface to the user. But by also organizing them by topic, Facebook is aligning more with its users, and how they search for social media.The problem, of course, is that the new feeds really don’t eliminate the personal “pay-to-play” problem, where a user that is desperate to tell the world that his cat is missing, for example, can’t be sure that all of his friends and family will actually see the post. In that case, pay-to-play may be the only viable solution. But at least Nick Bilton should be happier. Worried that you might miss an update to Facebook Pages you subscribe to? Or are you concerned that your legions of followers aren’t seeing your shared stories? Either way, Facebook has an answer: its new “Following” feed.On Thursday, Facebook updated its News Feed with a new look that emphasizes photos prominently, shares a common look and feel with the Facebook mobile apps, and breaks out undates into separate sections, or feeds. For now, Facebook is highlighting feeds that include photos, games, music, “all friends,” “close friends,” and the “Following” feed, which includes those brands and people that have enabled followers, allowing userswho aren’t actually friends to monitor their posts anyway.In practice, the new feeds slice the normal News Feed into different sections, highlighting more updates in a given category. In using the new News Feed layout, I saw a few more photos in the Photo feed, for example, than I saw in my general News Feed.Feed MeThat also seems to be the case within the other new Feeds, which may help alleviate concerns that Facebook is engaging in “pay-to-play” tactics. Of course, some users may look at the new Feeds as a walled garden of sorts, where subscribers will have to specifically seek out new material publishers are posting.
