GREENSBURG – Four people are facing charges after a meth raid at a home on the 400 block of Lincoln Street Thursday morning.Four law enforcement agencies worked together to search the home finding a one-pot meth laboratory and drug paraphernalia, according to the Greensburg Daily News. 23-year-old Kevin Kilgore, Greensburg, was arrested and charged with allegedly manufacturing meth, a Level 4 Felony. The newspaper reported that he was found in a crawl space next to the home’s foundation during the raid.33-year-old Misty Carroll, a resident of the home, was arrested on suspicion of manufacturing meth and maintaining a common nuisance, a Level 5 Felony.Police arrested two additional people on misdemeanor charges for visiting a common nuisance.The Department of Child Services removed a 17-year-old living in the home and when taken to the hospital, the girl tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine, the newspaper reported.The search was part of a joint investigation between Greensburg Police, Decatur County Sheriff’s Department, Westport Marshal’s Office and Indiana State Police.Detectives say the meth lab is a health and safety danger as chemicals used could spark a fire.

By Greg AregoniFRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (Aug. 2) – The 141 Speedway track rookie of the year title is locked up for Josh Long. The only things left are to start knocking off feature wins and a possible championship run. Long earned his second feature win of the weekend with Saturday’s IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified victory at Francis Creek. Randy Markwardt opened as the leader. Jay Matthias jumped all over the leader and up front on lap two and set the pace over the next four laps until point leader Johnny Whitman encountered problems and brought out the only caution of the race. Long jumped up to the front of the field along with Shawn Kilgore who had started deep in the field. Long emerged as the man to beat as he grabbed the lead on Matthias on lap 12 down-low. Long went unchallenged the rest of the way and picked up his second win of the weekend after he also won at Luxemburg Speedway.Kilgore won the late-race battle with Matthias for second. R.M. Van Pay fought to finish fourth with Eric Mahlik fifth.Feature winners in the other sanctioned divisions included Larry Karcz in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and J.J. Anderson in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.Mike Brehmer paced the Stock Car field early. Dustin Loberger flew by on lap four and started to build his lead. Karcz and Rod Snellenberger ran to the second and third spots. Karcz started tracking down Loberger with eight laps remaining. Lap after lap, Karcz cut into the lead until he got to the back bumper of the leader with two laps remaining. Karcz kept his racer on the bottom off turn two and took the lead coming to the white flag.Karcz picked up his second feature win of the season in front of Loberger. Snellenberger increased his point lead with his third place finish. Luke Lemmens beat Rick Mahlberg back to the line for fifth.Shawn Umentum led the Northern SportMod Feature until the first caution flag flew on lap two. Hunter Parsons moved into the top spot on lap four and led through the final caution on lap eight.With Parsons getting yet another good restart and putting a decent distance on the field, the battle appeared to be for second. Anderson searched for the fastest lane, working up top and then moving down a lane.Anderson came roaring passed on lap 15 and never looked back. He earned his second win of the season in front of Parsons. Mike Dauphinais ran to an impressive third place. Robby Thiel finished fourth with Cody Schroeder earning his second top five of the weekend.

Fresh off winning their inaugural Big Ten tournament title, the Wisconsin men’s hockey team will travel to Cincinnati this weekend for the first round of the NCAA Tournament.The Badgers (24-10-2 overall, 13-6-1 Big Ten) received a one seed in the Midwest Regional for the tournament and have earned the right to play fourth-seeded North Dakota (23-13-3 overall, 15-9-0 NCHC). The two teams used to play annually in WCHA conference play, but because of conference realignment this past year, the teams find themselves part of different conferences.Nevertheless, Wisconsin head coach Mike Eaves and his players are still fully aware of what the North Dakota program is all about and will look to use that to their advantage come Friday.“We won’t have to go into the ring and jab around for each other for a while and figure each other out,” Eaves said. “We know styles. We’ve played each other within the last year. We’ll just jump into the deep end and start swimming.”Eaves’ team won’t be swimming blindly because they are aware of the balanced attack this North Dakota team brings and that anybody that’s on the ice for them has the ability to score at any time.“They have a lot of balance. They don’t have the real big numbers of years past, but they play with good balance,” he said. “Offensively, they have the highest points per game for defensemen, so their defense will provide a lot of offense for them.”Unlike this year, last season in the first round of the tournament, Wisconsin found itself going up against a team it had never seen before at University of Massachusetts-Lowell. The lack of familiarity hurt the fourth-seeded Badgers as they fell to the No. 1 seeded River Hawks by a count of 6-1.Senior defenseman and captain Frankie Simonelli has faced off against North Dakota numerous times in his four years at Wisconsin. He believes the high familiarity with the first round opponent is huge benefit for the team and will help prevent the Badgers from repeating what happened last year.“I think it is big, especially looking back at last year. We came across UMass [Lowell], an opponent who we have never seen before and knew pretty much nothing about. This year is going to be much different,” Simonelli said. “We have that experience from last year as well as the familiarity with North Dakota. We know their tendencies, we know what they’ve been like in the past and we know what kind of game it is going to be.”The balance presented throughout the North Dakota lineup will present a daunting task for Wisconsin. Eight North Dakota skaters have 20 or more points this season and 21 have scored a goal in a game this season.That offensive depth combined with the physicality UND has displayed over the years should make for a difficult matchup for Wisconsin in reigniting the rivalry between the two schools.“They generate their offense throughout their whole team. Their defensemen like to join in on their rushes and generate a lot of offense on their power play. It’s going to be a mucking and grinding type of game. We know it’s going to be a hard, toe-to-toe battle between the two of us,” Simonelli said.On the surface, despite earning a number one seed, it appears that Wisconsin got a tough first round draw. This is especially evident when looking at the year North Dakota has had finishing second in the NCHC regular season and third in the conference tournament.North Dakota has already experienced success in its first year in the NCHC but also has a long history of success, which includes seven national championships and a calling card as a tough opponent to go up against.Although a disparity exists between the two teams’ seedings, the Badgers find themselves dead even defensively with North Dakota, as both teams are giving up an average of 2.5 goals per game this season.Even though UW seemingly got a tough draw to start the tournament, senior forward Mark Zengerle, who scored the game-winning overtime goal in the Big Ten championship game, explained how the team is excited, rather than disappointed, about drawing North Dakota in the first round.“I think most people probably see North Dakota and think we got the short end of the stick as far as the drawing goes and see North Dakota as such a rough and tough team. But we are excited about that. We wanted to play them when we heard there was opportunity, it will be a fun game,” Zengerle said. “We learned last year when we lost to UMass, a team we knew nothing about, that maybe it wasn’t so great playing a team we didn’t know. I think this year it fits things perfectly.”This Wisconsin team started the season ranked No. 3 in the NCAA preseason rankings, so there is no reason to believe that this team can’t make it to Philadelphia for the Frozen Four or even win its first national championship since 2006. With that said, a Big Ten title isn’t enough for the Badgers, and this team is still hungry for more.“There is only one team out of 59 that ends up winning, but when you have the experience we have with all the seniors, the amount of talent and the goaltending, and it doesn’t all come through in the end, then it is definitely a failure,” Zengerle said. “We knew we had a realistic chance going in to the season to win everything. Obviously, winning the Big Ten is nice, but it’s not the end goal.”With the end goal being a national championship, the nine seniors on this team would want nothing more than to end their college hockey career on top.“That would be the ultimate capstone,” Simonelli said. “We haven’t gotten much of a sniff at it before, but this is the last crack I’ll have at it with nine other seniors on this team. We have an attempt to win a national championship, so hopefully we can get there and achieve that goal.”Wisconsin and North Dakota will face off in Cincinnati in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at 7 p.m. Friday.
A scorching start · Senior attacker Caroline deLyra pivots in a game against Michigan in March. The women’s lacrosse team is 11-0 this season. – Brian Ji | Daily TrojanThe unforgettable ending to Monday night’s NCAA men’s basketball title game had everyone buzzing. Everywhere I went in the ensuing 24 hours, people, basketball fans or not, wanted to talk about it — Uber drivers, baristas, professors and even my mother, who texted me after the game. And it was truly incredible, but something has been bugging me and it’s time I storm the Wildcats’ stage to say my piece: “Yo Villanova, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but UConn women’s basketball is one of the best dynasties of all time!”The Huskies’ 31-point win over Syracuse in the national championship Tuesday night gave the program its fourth consecutive title, capping off another undefeated season, and extending its historic winning streak to a whopping 75 games. With his 11th championship overall, head coach Geno Auriemma moved past the legendary John Wooden for most titles won by any coach in the sport all-time. Senior Breanna Stewart also became the first player on the women’s or men’s side to ever win four tournament most valuable players awards.These are remarkable feats and records that will very likely never be broken by any coach, player or team in collegiate basketball. For some mysterious reason, though, perhaps still lost in all of the crying Jordan memes and game-winning shot reactions, no one’s chatting or buzzing about the history that was just made by the Huskies. I tried bringing it up in conversation with some of my more athletic colleagues and the response I got was, “There was a championship game last night?”This type of oblivion towards the women’s game brings forward the very sad, yet true, reality of the attitudes towards it. I asked a few peers, males specifically, why they didn’t watch the women’s basketball Final Four and the answer I received each and every time was “because no one cares.” It shouldn’t be that way, but the harsh truth is that this is the way a lot of people, and not just males, use to justify their lack of appeal for women’s sports. It’s really tragic because as someone who has covered multiple collegiate women’s sports and practiced with them on the court, I watch, I care, and more people should begin to as well.At USC, the spotlight is almost always centered on football, men’s basketball and baseball. That’s because it’s what’s considered the social norm. In fact, I’ve previously been made fun of when I’ve said I was headed to a women’s basketball or women’s volleyball game. That’s just not right.Why can’t the spotlight shift to sports like women’s water polo, lacrosse or beach volleyball in the spring? In just its fourth season, the women’s lacrosse team is undefeated, as is the women’s water polo team, who is also ranked the No. 1 team in the country. The beach volleyball program is the last USC team to win a national championship after it turned in a perfect 28-0 season. Why do these high-achieving teams garner our attention and fanfare?One can’t deny the large gap that already exists when it comes to fan interest in men’s and women’s sports. This is nothing new, and the UConn women’s basketball team is just a microcosm of this inequality. One columnist even had the nerve to say that UConn was killing the women’s game. In the men’s game, dominance is celebrated, while in the women’s game, it’s frowned upon. Would I be lying if I said that everyone, including sports talk shows and networks, would be salivating if the Duke or Kentucky men’s teams had won 50-plus straight games and counting?So what’s it going to take for women’s teams to get the same type of treatment? We’ve grown up on the notion that boys are naturally stronger and faster than girls, but that doesn’t mean women shouldn’t be celebrated for athletic accomplishments. That belief makes it just as much a societal culture issue. Then, there are those that say the women’s game isn’t as “entertaining,” so that’s why they don’t watch.“They can’t dunk, so what’s the point,” someone told me.It has even gotten to the point where there’s a lot of discussion around lowering the rim in women’s basketball, which in turn, would add a whole new element to the game. Former UConn star and WNBA player Diana Taurasi powerfully responded to that idea by saying, “Might as well put us in skirts and back in the kitchen.”Women’s sports have come too far and made too many strides to digress now. Just in the past few years, Becky Hammon became the first female assistant coach in the NBA, Jen Welter became the NFL’s first female coach and former softball player Jessica Mendoza emerged as the first female broadcaster to call a Major League Baseball game on ESPN. While there is a long way to go for total equality, the leagues and the sports themselves have done their part. It’s now the fans’ turn to “lean in” to ensure that the women’s game garners the attention it very much deserves.Darian Nourian is a senior majoring in print and digital journalism.

Russell Colvin joins FSB as retail lead June 9, 2020 FSB selects Glenn Elliott as new COO August 12, 2020 Related Articles StumbleUpon Share Better Collective Spotlight: How Betarades.gr is driving engagement through YouTube July 30, 2020 Submit Share FSB Tech CEO Dave McDowell (pictured) discusses taking the Remote Darts League (RDL) right through from concept to sourcing players and event production, how he hopes it will open the industry’s eyes to the power of FSB’s data automation platform, and why the RDL has quickly found a place within the darts community – with opportunities for both male and female players.SBC: Can you just explain FSB’s part in the RDL launch, FarawaySports and any other supporting parties?DM: When it looked like we were going to lose live sports, we discussed a number of responses. One of those was to create the RDL, while other responses were to add feeds for Table Tennis and to source more esports and virtual sports content for our platform. Creating the RDL included everything from concept to sourcing players and producing the events, as well as building the technology to collect data and trade the sports. We felt that the optics of a sports betting supplier producing its own events could be challenging from an integrity point of view, so we created the FarawaySports production house and hired Kevin Dale to independently run the events to ensure the highest possible levels of integrity. We also informed the Gambling Commission of our involvement before the first tournament started. Given the concerns over customer well-being at the start of the pandemic lockdown period, we ensured that the content was available to end users for free on the YouTube Live platform and we did not promote any betting brands within the streaming content. We are grateful to GeoComply for participating in our second tournament as the title sponsor, which has helped us to bring the second tournament to market.The FarawaySports team are now running a full RFP process with the data/video distribution industry in the hopes of securing a lasting place in the sporting calendar. SBC: We understand that, for the first time, FSB’s own statistical model was used to produce the darts odds. How accurate and robust has this proved given that it must have been completed in a maximum of 2/3 weeks?DM: 70% of the wagers placed on the FSB platform are on odds that we have compiled ourselves with our own algorithmic pricing models. These models cover football, racing, golf and now darts and we are continuing to expand our capabilities in this area. So, while this was the first time we produced a darts model, we have a strong quant team and have been running our own models for over a decade now. The models proved to be very robust, in particular for the fast-moving in-play markets.SBC: Is this a one-off in terms of modelling your own prices for the sport? Or has it opened your eyes to doing more external to your normal data feed suppliers?DM: I have always believed that a sports betting operator needs to be in control of their data. In fact, I published a LinkedIn article on this back in 2014 stating that the industrial revolution was coming and explained how data feeds were being used to drive in-play odds compilation algorithms. For the more strategically important sports, it is critical to operate your own odds compilation algorithms. For the longer tail of sports, it is important to have access to accurate odds from the best industry suppliers. I would always encourage operators to work with a wide range of data suppliers to curate the best possible product for their audience.At FSB, we have built an entire data automation platform that allows us to aggregate data feeds from across the market, run our own models and push a single stream of live odds into the sportsbook. Our intention with the RDL was to showcase the power of this data automation platform as we are now selling this technology to enterprise customers. Rather than having our own eyes opened, we did the project so that we could open more eyes across the industry about how modern technology can be used to maintain the right balance between control and efficiency. SBC: What has it taught you about the challenges of collecting live data from sporting events? Assuming you are the sole feed provider (with no-one to fall back on), have you had any periods of downtime or long market suspensions?DM: Data collection is an altogether different challenge. I know there are companies making exciting investments into automating the data collection process with vision systems in other sports, but for the RDL we simply had one person typing in the scores as they came through the video and a second person (in a different location) checking the scores.Mistakes will always be made in a manual process, so we put a lot of effort into understanding the types of mistakes that could be made and giving the team tools to recover from those mistakes.Given that the players were taking place in different venues there were a few outages caused by local internet issues, but thankfully these were infrequent. The technology, however, worked perfectly.SBC: And finally, the Finals night for the RDL is scheduled for today (Monday 8 June); but what is the longer term future for the concept?DM: The RDL has quickly found a place within the darts community and, in part, started out by filling a void left by the BDO. We were also approved for betting in the USA by several state regulators and are working with the World Darts Federation to gain recognition of our tournaments for rankings.We believe there is an exciting opportunity to offer a range of international tournaments with players who might not regularly meet one another due to issues in geography. For example, the second tournament featured games being played between players as far apart as the US and New Zealand. We also believe there is a real opportunity to raise awareness for female players, with the second RDL tournament featuring four female players who were clearly being supported by the community during the live events. As I mentioned earlier, the FarawaySports team are running an RFP process for data and video distribution to the gaming industry, and this cash flow is critical to the future of the league. They are also looking for more sponsors and there is an appetite to make the RDL a permanent fixture if we can get the economics to stack up. If you are interested in participating in the distribution or sponsorship then I would urge you to get in touch with the FarawaySports team.

A new stipendiary magistrate has been assigned to steer the judicial affairs of the Ganta Magisterial Court, replacing outgoing Victoria GbalazayThe newly assigned Stipendiary Magistrate, Attorney-at-Law Nyan Meator Ben, previously served as stipendiary magistrate at the Paynesville Magisterial Court for several years.Magistrate Ben, who was inducted into office by Chief Justice of Liberia, Cllr. Francis Korkpor, on July 11, expressed the happiness at being assigned as to Ganta City because, according to him, every government worker should be able to take assignment everywhere.Attorney Ben vowed to bring transparency to the justice system in Ganta during his tenure as stipendiary magistrate.“By virtue of our education, we have been encouraged to do our best to bring fair judgment to the people of Ganta and Nimba at large,” he said.He urged the citizens to be law-abiding by taking their grievances to the law instead of taking it law into their own hands.“We have come to uphold your rights, whether in the capacity as the defendant or plaintiff,” he said.There had been many complaints of judicial malpractices during the tenure of the outgoing magistrate, including claims of allegedly receiving bond fees and alleged instances of intimidation. But she often denied such allegations.Outgoing Stipendiary Magistrate Victoria Gbalazay served the Ganta Magisterial Court for over ten years.But during the induction ceremony, Chief Justice Korkpor said her removal had nothing to with complaints; it was rather a normal judicial routine to change judges whenever the need arises.Ganta is one of the most diverse municipalities, where the issue of mob violence appears to be commonplace; but there had been complaints that the justice system, beginning with the police, was not fair and that it was very hard to get redress from the court unless you spent money. But the new stipendiary magistrate has vowed to change this “if such were indeed happening.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
