Less than 48 hours removed from one of the worst losses in program history, the Wisconsin men’s basketball rebounded with a 92-65 victory over Siena.Although the defense started slow once again, Wisconsin built a healthy first half lead and then put the game away for good by making six of its first seven shots from the field to build a lead that reached a margin as large as 33 points.Junior guard Bronson Koenig, who poured in a career-high 23 points, scored six quick points after halftime to help the cause and secure No. 17 Wisconsin’s first win of the 2015-16 season. Junior forward Vitto Brown also had a career-high in points, with 16.“I did a better job of slowing the game down and letting it come to me,” Brown said.In defeat was a Siena team from the MAAC who, unlike Western Illinois two nights ago, was overpowered. The Badgers shot lights out from the field throughout the game, especially in the second half when they made 68 percent of their shots to finish the game shooting 58.5 percent.For the second straight game, UW started 4-of-6 from the field. Unlike Friday night, though, UW held on to the hot hand. More impressively, they did it without starters Nigel Hayes and Ethan Happ who spent some quality time on the bench because both picked up two early fouls.Despite limited playing time, Hayes managed to score 14 points and Happ finished with eight.The Badgers were committed to going inside early on, with five of their first six field goals coming from a short distance.“[We did a] much better job tonight to start the [game] and to start the half,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said.With all of the action inside, the Badgers frequented the free throw line, where they were much more effective than against Western Illinois. Wisconsin shot 25-for-30 from the charity stripe Sunday night.A straight-on three-pointer from Ryan Oliver gave Siena its first lead of the ballgame at 14-13 with 12:46 to go in the half. Siena made seven of its first 11 shots, but then went cold, only converting four of their final 17 attempts in the half.Koenig said UW emphasized defense during Saturday’s practice after the dismal performance on the defensive end of the floor during Friday’s loss.“You really couldn’t get much worse than Friday,” Koenig said.Leading the way for the Saints were Nico Clareth (21 points) and Marquis Wright (17 points).Vitto Brown had a career-high 16 points Sunday night. Jason Chan/The Badger HeraldWhile the rest of the Badgers were working inside, Brown got his mid-range game going, sinking jumpers to keep UW close. He hit one from the right wing to put Wisconsin up 17-16 nine minutes and 21 seconds into the game, a lead his team wouldn’t relinquish. Ten of his points came in the first half.“He seemed a little more focused,” Ryan said. “He was a little more under control and that’s what he’s going to have to do.”After taking 21 three’s in the opener, Wisconsin didn’t attempt a shot from behind the arc until 9:15 remained in the first half, when Koenig knocked one down from the left side to increase the lead to 23-18 and got the Badgers rolling. The Saints were an inefficient 1-for-8 from three and the deep shot selections stalled the offense.In the middle of the first half, Siena switched to a 2-3 zone to offset Wisconsin’s inside attack, but UW utilized patience and cerebral passing to adjust. It pulled ahead and carried a 43-28 lead into halftime behind shooting 50 percent from the field and 13 points from Koenig.The half came to an exciting end when Koenig failed to hit a last-second three and Zak Showalter flew through the air, met the ball at the rim and flushed it down as time expired to give Wisconsin its biggest lead of the half.The large lead allowed freshmen Alex Illikainen (six points) and Brevin Pritzl (four minutes) to make their debuts as Badgers.
By John Burton and Liz SheehanSEA BRIGHT – A long and grueling process ended in ultimate victory for the owner of the Mad Hatter bar and restaurant and his plans to rebuild and expand.On what was the ninth and equally lengthy hearing on Thursday, June 30, on the plan to reconstruct the Sandy-damaged popular oceanfront spot, the borough Planning Board voted 6-3 to approve the plan.As with many recent building and zoning issues, the legal battle may not be over. After more than a three-hour hearing and a board vote which came after 11 p.m., Scott and Amy Kelly, the couple who have owned Mad Hatter since January 2006, hugged each other and were met with rounds of applause from supporters who regularly attended months of hearings and continued to voice their endorsement for the site’s rebuilding.But there was opposition during these hearings as well. Jennifer Walsh, who has been opposing the plan, offered an emailed statement in the days following the vote. In her statement Walsh noted after discussing the matter with her lawyer, Ron Gasiorowski, “[W]e are evaluating the options for further action.”Gasiorowski said he and his client would review the resolution after it is finalized, and weigh the possibility of an appeal. Under state land use law, an objector has 45 business days following the resolution to file an appeal and have the decision evaluated by the state Superior Court. Walsh, who lives near the Mad Hatter’s Ocean Avenue site, continued to express concerns over the expanded size, and the larger crowds it would attract, as well as the associated noise, traffic and parking needs. “I continue to support the Mad Hatter rebuilding to its existing size and successful business model as a single floor bar-restaurant with an outdoor patio and office/residential space above, plus elevating to comply with the new flood plain elevation, thus satisfying the requirements for safety and sustainability,” Walsh said in her statement.The Kellys, through their Kelly Management Group, LLC, plan to construct a 43- foot structure (42 is the maximum under current borough standards), with no setback restrictions. The three-story building would have a ground floor restaurant and retail kiosk, and the upper floors would have bars and outside decks. The facility would operate from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.Brian Kelly testified the site would have live music on busier evenings and play recorded music through the business’ sound system the rest of time.As a concession to some of the concerns expressed during the hearings, Kelly plans to stop live music earlier than previously planned and install thick glass enclosures on the deck areas to contain noise.Like much of Sea Bright, the popular Mad Hatter, 10 East Ocean Ave., sustained substantial damage from Sandy. Kelly said previously the site had as much as 6 to 8 feet of water, with sand, mud and debris from the storm.The New Jersey Economic Development Authority previously provided the Kellys with a 10-year, $5 million low-interest loan to assist in rebuilding the project which Brian Kelly said would cost approximately $15 million to accomplish.While there were those who voiced objections, the Kellys have received seemingly substantial public support, with those in favor donning T-shirts and commenting on social media, as well regularly voicing their beliefs that the rebuilding would help with Sea Bright’s continuing efforts to return to normal following Sandy’s devastation.But Walsh and others have said the plan would put a further burden on parking resources and impact quality of life for residents.Walsh, who has a 3-year-old son, said she has received two anonymous letters she felt were threatening because of her objections.
Despite struggling for most of season Co-op staged a late season surge during the second-half of the season to advance to the championship game, getting past Vikings in one semi final.Meanwhile the Innkeepers, which barely lost out to the U18 Reps in the race for the first half title, were the most consistent squad throughout the season.The ‘Keepers won the fall regular season title with an undefeated mark.In the final both teams took turns penetrating the defensive lines only to find the goalkeepers equal to the task.That was until Harvey managed to get into the clear for the game’s only goal.Mike Precious was outstanding between the pipes for the Innkeepers to register the shutout.Paul Anderson, Derek Stefiuk and Chris Richards for the Innkeepers and Kootenay Co-op player Cam Kuch and Cedar Goebel all received cautions during the game.In the other Nelson City Soccer Playoff Sunday, Finley’s Jiggers won the Women’s Over-30 title while Bia Boro captured the Men’s Over-35 crown.

8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Take Advantage of Yelp’s Tools For BusinessesWe mentioned a couple of tools that Yelp has made available to businesses, such as the ability to respond to reviewers. Business owners can find that and more at the site’s business portal, found at biz.yelp.com. From there, you can claim a business listing, add informative details and unlimited photos to it, and establish rewards for customers who check in to your establishment via Yelp. They also publish a weekly email newsletter containing tips and best practices for using the site. It’s been a few years since Yelp launched, but despite proliferatingcompetition, the user-generated business reviews site isn’t going anywhere. For some local businesses, it’s a blessing. For others, the very public, sometimes brutal candor of their customers can be a lot to swallow.Like it or not, social media has empowered customers to call it like they see it and businesses have no choice but to join the conversation. So how can a small, local business make the most of Yelp and its often passionate community? We talked to Luther Lowe, Yelp’s Manager of Local Business Outreach and he shared a few pointers.Don’t Try to Influence ReviewsLet’s be honest: Business owners are used to being in control. When you bought an ad in your local newspaper (remember those?), you could work with the ad sales rep to define exactly the message you wanted the public to see. If somebody thought your service sucked, the worse they could do was gripe to a friend or tell you to your face. Now, those customers collectively have a megaphone that’s arguably even bigger than the one the local paper used to hold.As tempting as it is, business owners shouldn’t try to directly influence the reviews of their establishment on Yelp, says Lowe.“Yelp is different than many other review sites in that we discourage review solicitation,” he says. “There’s only one way to truly influence your reviews on Yelp: a laser focus on customer service.”It’s Just a Negative Review. Don’t Freak Out.Nobody likes to hear negative things said about them. Unfortunately for businesses, most people don’t tend to treat them with the same politeness as they would a person with whom they’re speaking face-to-face. And sure, when somebody publicly trashes your business, it can sting.“No one is taking that negative review as seriously as you are,” says Lowe. “It is, after all, one person’s opinion.”Yelp offers business the means to respond to reviews in a direct, private message or publicly on the site. Lowe recommends starting with a cool-headed, diplomatic message to the dissatisfied customer and then seeing where things go from there.“Often, users will update their review and change it from a 2-star to a 4-star after being contacted by an apologetic-sounding business owner,” says Lowe.If that doesn’t work, well, it’s not the end of the world. Listen and LearnWhether reviews are good, bad or indifferent, they’re still the opinions and anecdotes of actual customers. Never before has so much insight been made so readily available to people who run businesses. Use this feedback to learn what your strengths and weaknesses might be. Improving on those weak points can only result in more satisfied customers – and more positive reviews.Says Lowe, “If ten people say your bread is stale, guess what: your bread is stale.”The information to be gleaned from Yelp isn’t limited to your own reviews, says Lowe. You can also use the site to conduct a competitive analysis and learn what your local rivals are doing to enamor – or enrage – their customers. Apply those lessons to your own business and watch it thrive.

The South Carolina General Assembly has passed legislation that permits homeowners to lease photovoltaic (PV) equipment from third-party installers, loosening what PVSolarReport has called some of the most restrictive PV laws in the country.The measure, which has been sent to the governor for a signature, establishes a legal basis for financing rooftop solar equipment through lease agreements, according to a report at Utilitydive.com, and follows lengthy negotiations involving solar advocates, utilities, solar installers, and others.The opportunity to lease solar panels instead of having to buy them outright saves homeowners a hefty initial investment. Also, solar installers, such as SolarCity and SunPower, typically claim that homeowners will pay lower rates for power generated on their own roofs than they would through their utilities. Homeowners of leased systems aren’t responsible for maintenance.Third-party funding of PV systems has “dramatically expanded” PV capacity wherever it has been available, Utilitydive.com said.In addition to opening the door to leased systems, the bill maintains South Carolina’s current net-metering rules while requiring state regulators to take a closer look at the system with a “value-of-solar proceeding.” These hearings are aimed at setting a rate for electricity homeowners sell to the grid.About 5% of South Carolina’s net electrical generation in 2013 came from renewable sources, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Most of that, 59%, came from hydroelectric projects. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, South Carolina ranked 34th in the country for installed PV in November 2013 with 4.6 megawatts of capacity. That’s enough to power 410 homes.

Touch Football Australia (TFA) is excited to announce it has been identified and will be assisting in a PhD project relating to the education of high performance referees in sport. The study, â€˜investigating elite referee learning frameworks and curriculaâ€™, is being conducted by Kathy Oâ€™Brien, from University of Queensland Department of Human Movement Studies, who is also a former Australian Touch Football Youth coach.The aim of the project is to investigate elite referee practitionerâ€™s conceptions of learning sources that promote the more rapid acquisition of sport-specific skills and personal capacities and the extent to which these key sources are currently incorporated into officiating course designs.As part of this study a series of interviews will be conducted with identified elite referees from the National Referees Squad, in order to gain data that provides a more holistic understanding of each refereesâ€™ views and actions, in the context of their role. The findings of the study will be made available to TFA and in turn may assist in the review of programs the overall development of Referees in our sport. Kathy will be at the National Touch League event to undertake the interviews for which individuals will be communicated with prior to arrange a time suitable for the referee.If you require any further information please contact Tara Steel – [email protected] Related Filesmemo_-_elite_referee_project-pdfRelated LinksRef Education Project
