Keck appoints Hugo Rosen as new chair of medicine

first_imgThe USC Keck School of Medicine has appointed Hugo Rosen as the new Chair of the Department of Medicine. He will begin his new position on May 1.Photo from Keck website.As a clinical program-builder and translational, clinical and basic science researcher, Rosen is a physician-scientist from the University of Colorado, where he has served as the head of the division of gastroenterology and hepatology since 2005. He is known for the improvement and expansion of his department while at the University of Colorado, bringing in 45 new faculty members and raising his division to be one of the highest rated in the country.Rosen plans to improve Keck by implementing the bench-to-bedside paradigm, in which scientists use their own research to aid their patients. He believes that the combination of the  Keck School, the Keck Medical Center of USC and Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center will help to accomplish this goal. “This is a pivotal juncture to promote the art and science of medicine, in Los Angeles and internationally, by training the next generation of leaders through comprehensive education, career development, transformative research and world-class patient care,” Rosen said in a USC News release.With more than 180 peer-reviewed manuscripts detailing investigations into cellular and molecular underpinnings of innate and adaptive immune responses, Rosen looks forward to his new appointment.“I’m deeply honored and thrilled to embrace this once-in-a-generation opportunity and the sacred responsibility of leading the Department of Medicine at USC,” Rosen said in the news release. “I’m impressed with the entire biomedical enterprise, the commitment to compassionate patient care and the institutional focus on innovation and convergence across multiple disciplines.”last_img read more

Steel Sensations…A look at tight ends and wide receivers

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (84) drops the sixth football that he tried to catch while holding the first five he caught in a punt catching drill during NFL football training camp in Latrobe, Pa., on Thursday, July 31, 2014 . (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)The Steelers appear to be loaded with depth at the pass catching positions as they currently hold six tight ends and eleven wide receivers on their roster.As the team progresses through camp and the pre-season; those numbers will dwindle and the dust will settle on who’s going to be ranked where. In the meantime; there are  some very interesting battles going on for various spots amongst both units and how they play out will be determined on the field.Tight end is always a very important position in the Todd Haley offense and the number one tight end is of course Heath Miller. Miller looks as healthy as ever and has a great opportunity to go back to the 2012 form that saw him grab over 70 balls for a career high 816 yards and eight touchdowns. Miller can do it all and is still one of the best tight ends in all of football.Heath Miller (AP Photo/File)The number two spot will be more interesting as it looks to be a battle between Matt Spaeth and David Paulson. Spaeth missed last season but if he can remain healthy, he should win the number two job. He’s tall, can catch the ball well and is a decent pass and run blocker. His experience gives him the edge.That leaves David Paulson as the number three tight end which should see him play a role more as a blocking end with the occasional reception. Paulson does have talent and played in all 16 games for the black and gold last season. He certainly has an outside chance of grabbing that second spot.The fourth and in all likelihood final tight end spot will come down to a battle between rookies Rob Blanchflower and Eric Waters and veteran Michael Palmer.Palmer was on the team last season and has 22 career receptions but I believe he’s the first man eliminated from this list and will be part of the teams’ first round of cuts.The two rookies will battle for that final spot and the edge will ultimately go to Blanchflower. The team drafted him in round seven this past May and I believe they look at him as a good developmental player. There is potential the team could keep Waters in that same vain but more likely that he’ll be put on the practice squad.Members of the media are reflected in the side of a van as Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown arrives for NFL football training camp at the team training facility in Latrobe, Pa., Friday, July 25, 2014. (AP Photo)Like tight end, wide receiver has their clear number one guy and that’s Antonio Brown. Brown is the team’s best and most athletic receiver and will be Big Ben’s number one target.Brown, now entering his fifth season is coming off an historic year in which he set career bests with 110 catches, 1,499 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.It would be shocking if he didn’t have a year similar to 2013 and there is certainly potential for him to go beyond last years’ performance as well. He has the ability to go across the middle, stretch the field and most certainly grab a ball in the bubble screen. He made everyone forget about Mike Wallace and he’s fast approaching Hines Ward level numbers.The second wide receiver spot is going to be a battle between second year man Markus Wheaton, rookie Martavis Bryant and newly signed veterans Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward Bey.All indications are the team wants the job to go to Markus Wheaton so it’s certainly his to lose. He didn’t show us anything in 2013 so he’s essentially starting fresh in 2014. Wheaton has good hands, he’s a burner and he can stretch the field but I don’t think he’s going to land the job. He seems too inconsistent and injury prone to be a second option for Roethlisberger.My money is on rookie Martavis Bryant. He’s the tallest receiver on the team outside of Derek Moye, he’s got very good hands and it’s not as hard for rookie wide receivers to learn an offensive system. They simply need to know how to run their routes and he can do that.Bryant reminds me of a young Plaxico Burress and it makes far more sense to have that tall, possession receiver as the number two vs. having another burner across from Antonio Brown.Heyward Bey and Moore absolutely have the potential to grab that second spot and certainly have more experience than anyone else on the team but I don’t think they were necessarily brought in to be the second option for Big Ben but rather to lend depth to the unit as well as help lead the group of young guys.The three through five spots will be between Wheaton, Heyward Bey and Moore and I think they may even interchange based on matchups. Wheaton and Heyward Bey are the speed guys and Moore is the possession guy so it will all be situational between these three.From a depth chart perspective the rankings will probably shake out with Wheaton being the third guy, Moore the four and Heyward Bey the five.  Each one of them will play a significant role in the offense however.The biggest question left is whether or not the team will keep a sixth guy?Typically based on other position needs; the team only keeps five receivers so it looks like it might be tough luck for Derek Moye, Danny Coale, Justin Brown, CJ Goodwin, Kashif Moore and Lanear Sampson.A few of these guys may get a practice squad spot and maybe one of them will surprise everyone and steal away the fifth receiver spot from one of the vets but it seems very unlikely.Never the less, keep your eye on Justin Brown and CJ Goodwin as they have the best chance of unseating one of the guys in front of them for that fifth job. They too are the most likely to be retained on the practice squad, if nothing else.While both tight end and wide receiver have clear number one players, the rest of the depth chart must be played out throughout camp and into the pre-season.  Jobs are won and lost in “the trenches” as Mike Tomlin says; so by the third pre-season game, we’ll know exactly how this depth chart will shake out and who’s “in” and who’s “out”.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

Selkirk College Saints Take Aim at Fourth Straight BCIHL Title

first_imgThe Selkirk College Saints have laid the perfect foundation for a fourth straight British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) championship run and starting Friday night will build towards the ultimate ending.The Saints put an exclamation mark on their regular season title on Saturday night at the Castlegar & District Recreation Centre with a 4-1 win over the Eastern Washington University Eagles.The accomplishment of first overall cements home ice advantage for the entire BCIHL post-season that begins with a best-of-three series against the University of Victoria Vikes this weekend.“The hard work comes in the next couple of weeks and we are looking forward to getting that going,” says Saints captain Tanner Lenting.“We have the group in here to do it, it’s just going to be up to us to make it happen.”The Saints hold a 5-1 record against the Vikes this season, but the visitors come into Castlegar as the hottest team in the league having won five games in a row.UVIC’s line-up features senior Shawn Mueller who finished third in league scoring and Heritage City resident and former Nelson Leafs Carsen Willans who ended up eighth spot in the regular season point totals.Also on the Vikes roster from the Leafs are forwards Linden Horswill, Matt MacDonald and defenceman Austin Seaman.The best-of-three starts on Friday night the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex at 7 p.m. and continues Saturday night at the same time. If necessary, the third game will take place on Sunday with the puck dropping at 6 p.m.“The playoffs are a battle and we are going to have to be at our best,” says Saints third-year goaltender James Prigione.“Victoria is a very good team and they put lots of pucks to the net, but our upper hand is our hard work. Our team has a lot of depth and when everybody plays their role, we are successful.” Eastern Washington Provides Solid TestIn Saturday’s regular season finale, the visitors came into the game in last place and knowing they would not be playing in the post-season. That didn’t stop Eastern Washington from playing for pride and they came out flying, outshooting the Saints 11-8 in the first 20 minutes that remained scoreless.Though the Eagles continued to control play in the second period, Saints starting goaltender Steven Glass was solid between the pipes. With seven minutes left in the second period, Saints’ rookie sensation Dallas Calvin scored the first goal of the game on the powerplay.Four minutes into the final period, Selkirk forward Troy Maclise made it 2-0 and Calvin added his second goal of the game five minutes later. The Eagles got on the board with just over six minutes left in the game when Josh Rolfe made it 3-1, but Ryan Edwards scored into the empty net to make the final 4-1.“It’s nice to get in there,” says Glass, who notched his first win of the season and was named the game’s second star.“Eastern Washington had something to prove and they played a good game. For me, our team has great intensity in practice and it’s not too difficult to step into games like that.”Saints Out to Solidify Place in League HistoryPlayer turnover at the college level is one of the primary challenges for team management, but Selkirk College has managed to build a program based on sustained winning.Now poised to chase a fourth straight championship, the players credit the atmosphere that surrounds the team as a key ingredient in success.“The culture here is important,” says forward Steven Pantazopoulos, who arrived to the Saints from Thompson Rivers University in the 2014-2015 season and is gunning for his third championship.“In my first year, right away I realized that everybody is here to work hard. If you work hard then you get rewarded and if you instill that into the next group of guys it becomes a snowball effect.”The community has embraced the Saints over the last four seasons and the players feed off the large crowds that assemble for all the home games.“There is nothing better than playing at home, especially in this rink and with our fans,” says third-year defenceman Arie Postmus. “If we work hard and do what we are capable of, we should come out on top.”If the Saints win the semi-final series, they will also host the league final which will feature the winner of the Simon Fraser University/Trinity Western University series.The league final series is set for the March 18-20 weekend.last_img read more

Clipboard Syndicate raised nearly $20,000 for OSU Dairy Judging Team expenses

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Traveling and entry fees for the Ohio State University Collegiate Dairy Judging Team competitions are expensive. The students manage the dairy parlor at the Ohio State Fair and do other fundraisers to pay their own way, but as travel costs continue to rise, the long-term budget for the program is looking slimmer. Extension dairy program specialist and collegiate dairy coach Bonnie Ayars decided to address the issue.“The students are working to raise money for their trips but we need a reserve for the future. For the very first time of my tenure, I am coming forth with a fundraiser for the collegiate dairy judging teams,” she said. “COBA generously donated a calf for us to use at the Spring Dairy Expo Buckeye Classic Sale managed by the kids.”Leading up to the March 30 sale, shares for the calf were sold for $100 each to raise funds for the judging team. Donors do not own the calf, but played a role in ensuring future opportunities for students on the Dairy Judging Team as a part of “The Clipboard Syndicate.” These shares were sold to alumni and friends of the dairy judging program for the purpose of funding travel, contest entry fees, and other costs associated with the collegiate dairy judging team.The shareholders then auctioned the heifer as Lot 1 in the 2017 Ohio Buckeye Classic Sale with all proceeds supporting the future of the collegiate dairy judging team through the Ohio State Dairy Judging Program Fund. The Clipboard Syndicate auctioned an early 507HO12788 Frazzled daughter born in December of 2016. Her Kingboy dam is a full sister to 7HO12787 King royal and her maternal line has been an exceptional cow family for the Buschur family in New Weston. She clocks in at +2631GTPI+744NM$+2069M+2.61T.“It was only a formality to buy into the calf,” Ayars said. “We are proud to announce that more than $19,000 has been raised to assist in the various traveling expenses associated with the program. More than 100 donors and advocates came forth to display their support. However since the sale when the calf was auctioned off at $8,500, we have been approached by more people and businesses who would like to contribute. The opportunity to give remains open.”Thanks each contributor, COBA for the very special calf, and John Ayars and ST genetics for their support of the Ohio State University dairy judging program. Forms and payment for additional support can be mailed to The Clipboard Syndicate, c/o Bonnie Ayars, 222D Animal Science Building, 2029 Fyffe Rd, Columbus, OH 43210.

All of 27, Mehra is spearheading YuvShaala-a career cum future awareness endeavour for rural youth. The enterprise has young people travelling across Himachal to counsel students on diverse career options. Mehra aims to cover Punjab and Himachal and launch his career-counselling magazine this year. A commerce graduate, Mehra pursued his CA Inter from Delhi and dreamt of doing an MBA from Management Development Institute, Gurgaon. But it was a visit to Himachal that made him discover his true calling. “A friend was launching an institution in Kullu and took me along for marketing presentations. However, the enthusiastic response we got from students inspired me to counsel village kids and Yuvshaala was born.” Mehra’s bedroom became YuvShaala’s boardroom, he says. “I even lost my way in remote Himachal villages and even had rickety school doors fall on me in villages,” laughs the undeterred counsellor.Preet Arjun SinghTee timeFrom a civil engineer with Infosys and a business developer for a leading northern coaching institute, handling their centres across Haryana, Himachal and Punjab, 25-year-old Preet Arjun Singh today is happy being called the T-shirt guy. Founder of concept brand store Karma Republic, the 2007 engineering graduate from Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, is busy spreading awareness about social/cultural issues through graphics on self-designed T shirts.These happened to Singh as a happy coincidence. “On 3rd August 2009, I designed a T shirt for myself themed on Independence Day. This tee had India along with the names freedom fighters. I uploaded the design on face book to seek feedback and appreciation. However, my inbox was flooded with requests for similar tees. I got 100 T shirts made, which sold off in three days,” he remembers. Besides looking for greater reach through existing retail chains and colleges, KR is strengthening its online presence. “Unlike a 9×5 job, designing tees gives me the freedom to experiment and work at my own pace,” chirps an excited Preet, presently working on a T shirt campaign against sexual harassment/eve teasing.advertisementadvertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Plan to buy more fighter jets puts Canada on hook for bigger

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada is being forced to shoulder a bigger share of the costs of developing F-35 fighter jets even though it has not decided whether it will actually buy any.Canada is one of nine partner countries in the F-35 project, all of which are required to cover a portion of the stealth fighter’s development costs to stay at the table.Each country pays based on the number of F-35s it’s expecting to buy, and Canada’s pitched in more than half-a-billion dollars over the last 20 years, including $54 million last year.But that amount was based on the Stephen Harper government’s plan to buy 65 new fighter jets to replace Canada’s aging CF-18s, which the Trudeau government has since officially increased to 88.Even though Canada has not committed that those 88 jets will be F-35s, Defence Department officials say that change means it will have to pay more to remain a partner — including about $72 million this year.The government has said it plans to keep Canada in the F-35 development effort until a replacement for the CF-18s is selected, which won’t happen for two or three more years.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
