Trefilov calls: Limit Russian teams to two foreign players

first_imgShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsLegendary Russian national team coach, Evgeny Trefilov, now in the role of coordinator for women’s handball in Federation, told in interview for handballfast.com, that solution to give more chance for Russian girls in the best teams in the league, would be to I remember, but show me a similar game performed by them in the Rostov club after the World Cup. I take off my hat to them for a classy performance in Kumamoto, but the question is different: where do the candidates for the Russian team go? Who will play it? Ours are sitting on the bench.Take point guards – Tazhenova, Frolova, Nikitin. Ira Nikitina soloed in Zvezda, but in Rostov she does not receive playing time in the attack. The next season will come French Grasse Zaadi. I don’t know if Nikitin will remain in the team. But even if he leaves, one of the two remaining, Tazhenova or Frolova, there is hardly a place on the court in this situation. I am by no means a nationalist, but we must develop our own and support our own. It would be useful to follow the path of volleyball and limit ourselves to two foreign players. Look, these foreign players are leaders in their teams, they are drawn to them, Russians are learning from them -said Trefilov.

Mobile Workers Put In Longer Hours and Like It [Infographic]

IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Tags:#Analysis#enterprise#mobile#Trends Related Posts Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… The latest global mobile workforce survey from economic trends analysis firm iPass reveals a trend that we probably noticed but tucked away in our Outlook agendas or Google calendars for some time later: Mobile workers worldwide are working longer hours. But they feel empowered by the mobile devices that enable them to do so, and they’re apparently happy with the results.So if you have a spouse and/or kids whom you may have neglected in the past month, well, shut off your iPad and pay attention.As iPass spokesperson Kate Blatt told RWW this afternoon, the firm surveyed some 85,000 individuals, receiving 3,000 responses from people identifying themselves as mobile workers. Some 19% of those respondents hail from IT, while 27% come from the R&D trades (including engineers, architects, doctors, mechanics), 20% from sales, and 6% from marketing.Of those respondents, according to iPass analyst John Gallagher, some 38.3% say they use mobile technology to do some amount of work during the early morning hours prior to their commute to work. Some 24.7% do some level of work during the commute, and 36.6% say they actually end up working through their lunch hour. Once they finally get home, 26.6% of respondents say they go back to doing some work remotely after they’ve eaten dinner, and 18.8% tuck the kids in bed and then go back to work again.Only 43.1% of mobile workers surveyed said they never work in the middle of the night.Is it because there’s simply too much work to be done? Is work not getting done efficiently enough? Or is the allure of mobile devices simply more compelling than, say, food? Family? Friends (not counting Facebook)?We asked iPass spokesperson Kate Blatt.“From the feedback in the survey, many feel that mobility makes them more efficient and enables them to be flexible,” Blatt tells RWW. “With flexibility comes control of when and where you work, and an expectation that you are available all the time, even on vacation. I think it is the new lifestyle that is sweeping the world… and there are trade-offs. People are willing to put in more hours, and be more productive in exchange for leaving the office at 4 pm to coach your kids’ soccer team, or meet friends for drinks.”In other words, being more productive during the longer work day, including the commutes, gives workers the freedom to pursue the other things that matter in their lives. Or at least the feeling of being able to do so. “64% of respondents felt they were better able to balance their work load with personal commitments, and not surprisingly, more than half (51%) felt more relaxed as a result of this improved balance,” the iPass report reads. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Which brings up this little gem of a graphic from iPass. Of the reasons mobile workers gave for being wrenched away from their mobile technology, fewer than half said it was to spend time with friends and family, and about 35% said it was to be able to eat dinner at home.Estimates of the total number of workers globally who may actually qualify as mobile, using the criteria iPass’ mobile workers use to classify themselves, range from 700 million to 1 billion. scott fulton read more

Vajpayee as fashionista?New York: Everybody knows the prime minister is fond of food, but A.B. Vajpayee as fashionista? His sartorial tastes are not so well known but they tend to get noticed only when he is abroad.While at official functions, he still favours the national dress of a bandgalla, but on less formal occasions he becomes quite the fashion plate. In India, he may wear the traditional politician’s garb but abroad, his secret wardrobe literally comes out of the closet. On one occasion in New York, while meeting his counterparts from Brazil and South Africa in his hotel, he sported a natty ensemble that would have looked perfectly in place in the pages of GQ.His get-up consisted of an ultra smart blazer tailored by Dunhill, the upscale British designer store, perfectly creased grey slacks and an equally sharp light grey silk polo neck shirt.It seems that making a statement at the UN now has a new meaning.last_img read more

Strategic Vest Jim Tressel accepts job as Akrons vice president of strategic

Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel was introduced Thursday by University of Akron President Luis Proenza as the school’s new vice president of strategic engagement. Reaction from OSU students regarding Tressel’s new job is mixed.   Just days removed from an unsuccessful run at the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts’ head coaching job, Tressel will begin his new role at Akron on May 1, 29 days shy of the one-year anniversary of his forced resignation at OSU. Tressel, who began his coaching career as an undergraduate assistant at Akron, will earn $200,000 annually in his new role at Akron. The position is a newly created one at the university.  “That Akron experience is something I look forward to sinking my teeth into,” Tressel said at the Thursday press conference at Akron. In his job, Tressel will “identify, recommend and support strategies and efforts that promote success in all facets of student life, including alumni and friend engagement, and collaborations and partnerships with community organizations that have an influence and impact on UA students and their futures,” according to the university’s website.  “Jim has touched thousands of lives in positive ways,” said Proenza. “He has incredible energy and demonstrates leadership, passion and compassion for students. We feel fortunate that he has decided to bring that dedication here to the University of Akron. Our students will be the beneficiaries.” In Tressel’s final game coaching the Buckeyes, he led the team to a 31-26 victory against Arkansas in the 2011 Sugar Bowl in the Louisiana Superdome. That game, along with the entire 2010 season, was later vacated by OSU as part of its self-imposed penalties for violating NCAA policies. Tressel’s decade-long reign at OSU ended when he was forced to resign from his post with the Buckeyes on May 30. On Dec. 19, Tressel was issued a five-year show cause penalty by the NCAA for not properly reporting NCAA rules violations that he was aware of during the Buckeyes’ 2010 season. The show cause would result in penalties for any member institution that hired him as a coach. Tressel remains one of the most successful coaches in OSU football history, having led the team to a national championship in 2002, a 94-21 overall record and an 8-1 record against rival Michigan. Dmitri Dulgov, a first-year in biology at OSU said he was shocked that Akron hired Tressel. “He lied to college football’s face,” Dulgov said, “and he put our university in a bad position.” Travis Tray, a third-year in communications, said the arrival of new Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer makes Tressel‘s return to a college campus tolerable.  “It’s a good position for (Tressel),” Tray said. “I’m over the whole situation — we have the best coach in the nation now.” read more

Ohio State mens hockey jockeying for bye in CCHA playoffs

Tied for fourth place in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association standings, the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team is positioned to earn at least one home playoff series as the regular season comes to a close. OSU (13-12-7, 12-7-5-1 CCHA) is tied with Ferris State (15-13-4, 13-11-2-1 CCHA) with two weekends left in the regular season. Both the Buckeyes and Bulldogs have 42 points this season, and the teams split the only series between them in early January. In the current CCHA format, a team earns one point for an overtime tie, two points for a shootout victory and three points for a win in regulation. OSU has two regular season series left while Ferris State only has one more opportunity to earn points. Both teams are coming off wins Saturday night, as OSU dispatched second-place Western Michigan, 6-3, in Columbus and Ferris State beat Bowling Green 4-3 at home in Big Rapids, Mich. OSU’s six-goal explosion Saturday came after being held to just one goal on Friday against the Broncos. It was the second time this month and third time in their last four weekend series the Buckeyes scored six goals in a game. OSU coach Mark Osiecki was pleased with his team’s effort on Saturday, especially with the 39-25 shot advantage OSU held against the Broncos in the game. “It’s hard to play (for the other team) when you put a lot of pucks on net,” Osiecki said. “It’s hard for defensemen. I’m a former defenseman. You have to turn, you have to open up, you have to find pucks. It’s very difficult to play.” The Buckeyes only recorded 19 shots on Friday against WMU’s 31, which led Osiecki to give his team one simple goal for Saturday. “Our message was shoot,” he said. “And we were very, very clear about that.” OSU hosts Michigan this weekend with a chance to add six more points to its season total against the Wolverines, who sit at 10th place in the CCHA standings. After being swept last weekend at Notre Dame, Michigan is looking to play the role of spoiler against its rival. Junior forward Alex Szczechura has nine goals in the last 15 games and said he feels OSU’s top line of himself and sophomore forwards Max McCormick and Tanner Fritz is working especially well together now. “Our line is clicking right now, as well as our whole team,” Szczechura said. “Pucks are just going in for me.” Fritz agreed with his teammate. “We’ve had a lot of chemistry,” he said after scoring his seventh goal of the season and recording three assists Saturday. “I feel like we’re getting the bounces now and we’re really clicking as a line. It’s probably the best time for us to be doing that, going into the playoffs.” The CCHA playoffs start March 8, but if OSU finishes at least fifth in the standings, it will earn a bye and open postseason play in the quarterfinals starting on March 15. The Buckeyes sit five points behind third-place Notre Dame, which travels to Kalamazoo, Mich., to play Western Michigan this weekend. A weekend sweep of Michigan would put OSU in position to be in third place in the standings heading into its final regular season series at Miami (Ohio). Freshman defenseman Craig Dalrymple said finishing in the top four of the conference to secure playing on home ice would be “big time” and that he and his teammates are believing in each other. “You obviously want home ice throughout the playoffs,” Dalrymple said Feb. 12. “We’re just here to worry about ourselves, and I think we just believe in each other.” The Buckeyes’ quest for home ice is set to continue Friday night against Michigan at 6:35 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Ohio State field hockeys Brooke Hiltz a real positive influence on people

Freshman forward Brooke Hiltz (6) watches a play develop during a game against Louisville Oct. 1 at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU lost, 6-3.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorFor Ohio State freshman Brooke Hiltz, field hockey is quite the family affair.Hiltz’s mother, Cindy Hiltz was a field hockey coach at Virginia Beach City Public schools and played at Appalachian State and her two older sisters, Liz and Kaitlyn, both played college field hockey at the University of Virginia. She’s always loved the game and said her sisters inspired her to continue to play as she got older.“It was kind of in my family,” Hiltz said. “I don’t think I really had a way around it.”However, Hiltz wanted to break away from her native town of Virginia Beach, Va. Both her sisters stayed home to be Virginia Cavaliers, but she wanted a different experience for herself.“They both played hockey at UVA, University of Virginia. They both played four years,” Hiltz said. “I just wanted to kind of do something different, get out of the area,ilt and see what was out here.”Hiltz said she knew she belonged at OSU when she walked around campus during her official visit.“I was just so in love with it and it just wasn’t even a choice anymore,” Hiltz said.As the field hockey season got under way, Hiltz took home Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors Oct. 8 following the team’s 2-1 victory over Ohio University Oct. 6.Earlier in 2013, the freshman earned the responsibility to be the injector for penalty corners, a position that requires the individual who plays it to be an accurate passer. The aspect of the game is important, because it allows the offensive team a chance to score while facing only five defenders, and the injector must be quick to the goal and ready to send home a rebound from the initial shot. Hiltz has stepped into the role well, always putting her teammates in position to score, coach Anne Wilkinson said.“She is consistent as far as her ball speed,” Wilkinson said. “I think it’s been good as far as getting the ball out and setting it up and she really puts herself in a good position to get rebounds as well.”Wilkinson said Hiltz also has a great understanding of the kind of play it takes to be a Buckeye. She said Hiltz has adjusted well and is able to learn new concepts quickly.“Brooke has been fantastic as far as stepping in as a freshman and working right into the system,” Wilkinson said. “She is a really quick learner and she is very, very coachable.”Wilkinson said Hiltz has “made the most progress as a player” this season and can be ready for any opponent that brings something new.“I just think her ability to play fast and (her) reaction to what other teams are presenting to us, she is really quick to realize it and she doesn’t get confused too easy,” Wilkinson said. “People come at us with different things and she is really quick to adjust.”Hiltz said she would not have been able to improve so much if it wasn’t for the support of her teammates. She said the team chemistry allows each player to grow and become better.“We click really well as a team on and off the field,” Hiltz said. “It’s like really cool to come to a whole new team with brand new girls and really get along with everyone so well.”Wilkinson said Hiltz has become a leader of the team and said her teammates enjoy being around her.“The team just loves her … she is coachable and likeable,” Wilkinson said. “She is really a great person to have on the team, a real positive influence on people.”Hiltz and the Buckeyes are scheduled to play Indiana Saturday at Buckeye Varsity Field. The match is set to begin at 1 p.m. read more
