Volleyball Clipped By An Opportune SIU, 3-2

first_imgBox Score CARBONDALE, Ill. – The Drake University volleyball team wasn’t able to hold off Southern Illinois Saturday afternoon as the Bulldogs lost, 3-2, in Carbondale, Ill., in the Bulldogs’ next-to-last road match of the season.Drake (23-7, 12-4 MVC) dropped just its fourth Missouri Valley Conference match of the season by set scores of 25-11, 25-27, 25-11, 16-25, 13-15.The Bulldogs were led by junior Cathryn Cheek (Coppell, Texas) who had one of her best career performances putting up career-high 24 digs while matching her career-high with 21 kills. Senior Kyla Inderski (Urbandale, Iowa) added 20 kills and 17 digs for her 18th double-double of the season. Also recording a double-double was sophomore Paige Aspinwall (Dayton, Minn.) who set up 43 assists and 10 digs. Her sets allowed Inderski to hit .395 and Gillian Gergen (Janesville, Iowa) .368 while the Bulldogs hit .234 as a team.”Obviously this was a disappointing outcome,” said Drake head coach Darrin McBroom. “We played a couple of good sets, but credit to SIU. They played their best volleyball when they needed to win three sets. Overall in most of the stats, we dominated most categories, but SIU managed to perform well at the right times to get the win. Timing was the key tonight and we’re still learning what it’s like to be the favored team and the pressure that comes with that.”Despite holding Southern Illinois (6-20, 5-10 MVC) to only a .188 hitting percentage, the Salukis’ timing and resiliency forced a five-set comeback victory. Drake hit .420 in the sets it won and just .122 in the sets it lost.Both teams traded points to open the match before an 8-3 Drake run gave the Bulldogs a lead they never relinquished in the first set. The Salukis answered in the second set scoring four straight opening points. The Bulldog offense struggled to get things going as Southern Illinois took a 10-4 lead before Drake was able to close in for its first lead of the set, 13-12. In a set that featured six ties and three lead changes Southern Illinois hung on for the 27-25 victory.The Bulldogs stormed back in the fourth set, holding Southern Illinois to just a .054 hitting percentage. Drake took control early in the fifth set building to an 11-8 lead before Southern Illinois closed out the game with a 7-2 run for a 15-13 victory to take the decisive fifth set and the match, 3-2.The Bulldogs travel to face conference leader Missouri State, who remains undefeated in Valley play. The matchup is scheduled for Sunday at 2 p.m. Following the contest, Drake returns home for their final regular season game against in-state foe UNI, Saturday, Nov. 18 at 5 p.m. in the Knapp Center.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Does Your Startup Have a Good Story?

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… audrey watters You startup should have a good story. Try telling one. If it doesn’t work, tell a different one. And if your story does work – if people “buy it” – make sure your startup lives up to it. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Never underestimate the importance of having a good story when pitching your startup to potential investors, clients, partners, and journalists. As Seth Godin writes in his 2005 bestseller All Marketers Are Liars, “Either you’re going to tell stories that spread or you’re going to become irrelevant.” Godin’s book addresses a shift in marketing – away from simply presenting factual information and towards telling great stories. As Godin suggests, these stories make us want to believe – in a product, in an idea, in a company.As you craft a story for your startup – whether it’s to be used in marketing, in a pitch to investors, or in conversation with friends and family – here are some things to keep in mind.Your story should be short. Your story doesn’t need to start at the birth of your idea and move through every detail of your startup’s history – from inception to launch. . Crystallize the most interesting part so that your story is succinct. Your story should be easy to tell. Avoid stories that have convoluted plot twists, intricate details, numerous characters, epic history — you aren’t relating War and Peace here. Avoid a story in which you’re likely to stumble over names and details.Your story should be memorable. You want to have a story for your startup that is compelling as people listen, of course. But you also want to tell a story that people will remember. You want your audience to walk away with some nugget of information about you, and while facts, figures, statistics can be interesting, they are sometimes more difficult to recall (or recall accurately) than the gist of a story.Your story should make an argument. Your story should help make your case with your audience, whether it’s an argument for the great opportunity it’ll be for investors, or an argument for the strengths of your company, or for the need for your product or service. My academic background here – and I do apologize – compels me to add Aristotle’s classifications of rhetoric. According to Aristotle, there are three modes of persuasion: ethos – making an appeal to your credibility, logos – making an appeal to reason, and pathos – making an appeal to emotion. Consider your audience as you weigh how best to make your argument.Your story should be strategic. Think about what you want to communicate to your audience, and craft a story that will help you do that. Do you want to highlight your vision? Your background? How your product was created? How has it helped meet a customer’s needs? Your story should be relevant. This seems obvious, perhaps, but don’t let the pressure to tell an entertaining anecdote sidetrack the actual purpose of your presentation.How to Tell a Good StoryIra Glass, whose radio show This American Life is one of the best examples of compelling storytelling, offers this advice: a good story has the momentum to keep your listeners interested. But is also contains some reflection: what it means, why it’s important.

(AP Photo/Thibault Camus)GENEVA — Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are the first teams in the Champions League knockout rounds after the group rivals both won Tuesday to advance with two games left.PSG routed Anderlecht 5-0 — with defender Layvin Kurzawa scoring three to outshine Neymar — and Bayern won 2-1 at Celtic.ADVERTISEMENT Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 GROUP AAnother Man United win at Old Trafford seemed routine, and it was 18-year-old Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar who again had the most eye-catching night.Svilar saved a penalty kick from Anthony Martial before conceding an own goal for the second straight game against United — his only two Champions League appearances.Two weeks after carrying a cross over his own goal-line, Svilar was unlucky this time when Nemanja Matic’s 45th-minute shot struck the post and rebounded into the net off the goalkeeper’s shoulder.United’s second goal came from another penalty, which coach Jose Mourinho seemed to insist should be taken by defender Daley Blind and not by Romelu Lukaku, the forward who now has not scored in six games.ADVERTISEMENT Roma edged one point ahead of Chelsea in the standings, and there is four-point gap to Atletico Madrid in third place.Atletico has gone to at least the quarterfinals in each of the past four seasons but now risks missing out after another draw against newcomer Qarabag of Azerbaijan, 1-1 in Madrid.Qarabag led in the 40th minute with a header by midfielder Michel, and Atletico equalized with a stunning side-foot shot from Thomas Partey in the 56th.

Gündoğan Kevin De Bruyne Sergio Agüero Videos The Sky Sports pundit branded the Catalan’s decision to only name six substitutes on the bench for the recent game at Burnley “a joke” Pep Guardiola has hit back at Gary Neville in the row over Manchester City’s substitutes, pointing out that the Sky Sports pundit “was a manager – for a short time”.Neville claimed Guardiola’s decision to only name six substitutes on his bench for the game at Burnley last Saturday was “a joke”, insisting the Catalan should have called up a youth-team player to make up the numbers.Neville stressed that the City boss is “an absolutely incredible manager” doing “unbelievable work”, but that his decision “let him down”.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Guardiola said at the time that he simply did not have enough players available to name a squad of 18, and that the youth team had played the night before, meaning none of the players would have been able to travel.The Catalan again clarified his position during his Friday press conference, and made sure he managed to fit in a dig at Neville, whose managerial experience amounts to an ill-fated three-month spell with Valencia.“It’s quite simple, we had a lot of injuries,” Guardiola said. “We had that day a training session at four in the afternoon. At the same time five or six of the players I could have taken had a game here.“It was just one or two hours later and it would not have been correct to go the manager who is preparing for the game and say ‘I need one or two players to go on the bench’ when they are going to play.“For that reason, I didn’t call him.“This guy, the pundit, he has to know my job is serious, it’s not a joke, never is it a joke. It’s so serious.”As another journalist took the microphone to ask the next question, Guardiola continued his riposte.Guardiola goes back in for another nibble at Gary Neville.You can tell he really wanted to get this one off his chest… pic.twitter.com/sePYX4Zvvg— Sam Lee (@Sammy_Goal) February 9, 2018“And he should know that because he was a manager – for a short time.”Guardiola had earlier stressed that he would name a full squad of 18 for Saturday’s game against Leicester City, and that “Gary Neville can be happy”.He also explained himself even further after his jibe at Neville.”It was the first time in my life but all of the players were injured believe me,” Guardiola said. “David [Silva] was not [available], John Stones was not fit. David trained with us that day at four in the afternoon but during the session, he said, ‘I am not ready’.”After that I went to the second team, but the second team in an hour and a half were going to play a game so I felt I’m not going to call the player to go to the bench when the substitute is normally Brahim [Diaz] or Yaya [Toure] or another one.”That is the reason why I don’t call one up. It was the first time in my life and an exception. If the training session had been at 11 in the morning I’d have had 18 but it’s not a big issue.”last_img read more
