Steph Curry gets last laugh reading critical scouting report

first_img*If you’re not a “serious” NBA fan, you might not remember that Steph Curry‘s draft projections coming out of college were not exactly off the charts, so to speak.Yes, it’s hard to believe that despite his outstanding shooting and Davidson’s improbable run in the 2008 NCAA Tournament, the 2015 MVP wasn’t universally heralded the next big thing.Flash forward to 2015 and Curry, who lead the Golden State Warriors to an NBA title — would like to remind you that he hasn’t forgotten.In a new video for Coach Up, Curry recites a particularly critical draft scouting report, which calls out several supposed characteristics that cast major doubt about his chances as a pro prospect:“Stephen’s explosiveness and athleticism are below standard,” it opens. Well, OK, maybe it’s not totally wrong. But it only gets more wrong from there.“He needs to considerably improve as a ball-handler,” it continues. “He will have limited success at the next level. Do not rely on him to run your team,” the report goes, as “2015 NBA CHAMPION” flashes across the screen.Yep, now it has jumped the shark.“Stephen must develop as a point guard in order to make it in the league.”Hmm, what an invaluable and insightful scouting report. Not!Watch:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLb8AwuZ7N8] source: FOX Sportslast_img read more

Welding to close a lane on the Taylor Bridge yet again this week

first_imgTAYLOR, B.C. – You’ve got three guesses why the Taylor Bridge is once again down to single-lane traffic this week, and the first two don’t count.Highway maintenance crews will be reducing Highway 97 over the Taylor Bridge down to single lane-alternating traffic between now and July 26th as welders once again make their way onto the bridge to conduct repairs.The repairs will be conducted from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and motorists are advised to expect delays of up to 20 minutes in each direction.- Advertisement -YRB North Peace General Manager Chris Charbonneau says that most of the welding will be done on the sides of some of the bridge deck’s floor beams, but that the work needs to be done during daylight hours, hence the hours of the closure.He said that some welding will also be done on the bridge’s metal deck, which is the reason for the lane closure.Charbonneau explained that while the work is listed on DriveBC.ca as running until July 26th, there is a possibility that the work could be completed by Tuesday or Wednesday.Advertisement He added that YRB is asking motorists to use caution while driving through the work zone, and is apologizing for any delays that motorists experience.last_img read more

DONEGAL TEACHERS HIGHLIGHT SERIOUS CONCERNS OVER JUNIOR CYCLE CHANGES

first_imgTeachers from Coláiste Na Carraige protest at the Junior Cycle changes.Teachers from Donegal joined colleagues in a lunchtime protest over Junior Cycle concerns outside school gates around the country yesterday. The protest was organised by second level unions TUI and ASTI.Co. Donegal TUI Chairperson Noel Rodden said teachers will always support positive change that guarantees improvement. “However, we are gravely concerned by the potential for damage posed by the new Junior Cycle proposals. Even at this late stage, there is an unacceptable lack of information about how the new Junior Cycle will work in practice and how it will be resourced.“The move to school-based assessment raises serious questions regarding the validity and reliability of student results. In addition to this, overlapping assessments will increase the pressure on students. There is also a risk of deterioration in the pupil/teacher, teacher/parent relationship if teachers are to mark their own students for certification.“As educators and practitioners, we believe that student achievement in the new Junior Cycle must be externally assessed and nationally certified by the State Examinations Commission.“Rushed change for which adequate preparation has not been made can cause irreparable damage to the education system and the educational experience of students.’ Detailed below are a range of specific concerns teachers have over the proposed changesWhy are teachers concerned about the changes to Junior Cycle?• There is an unacceptable lack of concrete information about how the new Junior Cycle will work in practice and how it will be resourced.• Meaningful engagement and negotiation with teachers and their unions has not taken place.• The system is simply not ready for change of such magnitude after six years of slash-and-burn austerity cuts to school resourcing and teacher numbers. • The planned discontinuation of external assessment/moderation puts standards at risk• The move to school-based assessment raises serious questions regarding the validity and reliability of student results.• School-based certification will lead to unfairness and a lack of consistency in standards.• Schools that cannot offer a broad curriculum or high visibility short courses will suffer. This means small schools, schools in rural areas and schools in disadvantaged areas will suffer. • Some existing subjects could be downgraded or marginalised.• There will be problems regarding the management, storage and security of assessment related materials.• There is a real threat of an increased, bureaucratic workload that will deflect teachers from their core teaching role• Principal teachers will experience a significant increase in administrative workload.• The multiplicity of overlapping assessment events will increase pressure on an already overstretched and overworked teaching population. It will also significantly increase the pressure on students.• The proposed changes take no account of the existing heavy workloads of teachers, including work being completed at home. The planned changes will result in further encroachment into teachers’ personal/family time.• If teachers are to assume the role of marking their own students for certification, TUI is concerned that there will be a deterioration in the pupil/teacher, teacher/parent relationship.• The terminal examination is a motivating focal point. Its removal may demotivate students.• The removal of a terminal state examination at Junior Cycle will impair student capacity to choose subjects for Senior Cycle and will remove the experience of sitting a state examination.DONEGAL TEACHERS HIGHLIGHT SERIOUS CONCERNS OVER JUNIOR CYCLE CHANGES was last modified: March 12th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
