Denton’s touchdown gets Bridge City past Silsbee

first_imgThe Orange LeaderBRIDGE CITY — “How ‘bout them Cardinals.”Those were the words Bridge City coach Dwayne Dubois echoed to the Cardinals after Friday night’s District 10-4A Division I showdown with the Silsbee Tigers. In a game that will go down as one of the best victories in the history of Bridge City, quarterback Byron Trahan connected with Hunter Denton on a 37-yard touchdown strike with 0:35 remaining and the Cardinals saw a 35-yard field goal go astray by Silsbee kicker Brady Carter as time expired as Bridge City muscled their way to a 42-41 victory to gain sole possession of first-place in 10-4A at Larry Ward Stadium.Trailing 41-35 and taking over at their own 26 with 2:03 left the Cardinals powered their way to the Tiger 37 thanks to a pair of Denton 10-yard runs.On first-and-10 from the 37, Trahan rolled slightly to the right and threw a perfect pass to Denton along the right side just before the end zone. Denton, who was covered well, made an outstanding catch for the score. Kicker Alferedo Heraldez then put the Cardinals ahead. Silsbee moved the ball from its own 39 all the way down to the Cardinal 18 thanks to big efforts from All-State running back Calvin Tyler and quarterback Willie Jones.With 0:02 remaining, Carter attempted the possible game-winning field goal but it went wide left and the Cardinals (5-2, 3-0) erupted in celebration.How fitting was it that the Cardinals outgained by one yard. Bridge City rolled up 504 total yards while the Tigers had 503.“Phew, what a game,” said Dubois. “Our kids, what more can you say, battled and battled and battled against a darn good football team tonight. We’re a good ballclub too. What a tremendous win, we, as a staff, couldn’t be prouder of our kids.”center_img The Cardinals will be back at home for Senior Night next week when they host the Navasota Rattlers while Silsbee will take on Huffman Hargrave.ORANGEFIELD 27, HAMSHIRE-FANNETT 16ORANGEFIELD — The Orangefield Bobcats beat the Hamshire-Fannett Longhorns 27-16 in a tough run-heavy game Friday night in District 12-4A Divison II action.The Bobcats (4-4, 1-1) utilized a strong performance by their offensive line to take down the Longhorns (1-8, 0-3), who battled hard.The win puts the Bobcats in excellent position to get one of the four-playoff spots out of the five-team 12-4A.Tailback Wesley Frillou lead the Bobcats in rushing yards with 177 while fullback Christopher McGee was the next highest rusher at 100 yards even.The Bobcats piled up 358 total yards, all of it via their dominating running game.Meanwhile, the Bobcat defense rose up, limiting the Longhorns to just 176 total yards, 141 of it on the ground.The Orangefield defense came up big with an interception and two fumble recoveries to ensure the victory over the Longhorns.Bobcat kicker Jacob Rainey was perfect with two field goals from 34 yards out and 22 yards out, and four PATs to make sure the Bobcats stayed ahead.Orangefield returns to the field at Hardin-Jefferson next Friday.•Also Friday: Hull-Daisetta 46, Sabine Pass 12.last_img read more

Working with their own patented, adjustable molding technology the new Exept bikes will feature completely custom geometry and  even layup across a range of road bike options to be debuted at Eurobike in a few weeks.Exept full custom, shaped carbon road bikesExept is a new custom carbon bike brand set to debut in a few weeks using the patented custom manufacturing technology that they developed under the name of Ego Cycles in its early days. Their unique monocoque bike building technique allows the use of complex tubing shaping and more elaborate carbon fiber lay-up than classic custom bikes would allow, all while retaining geometry customization thanks to adaptable molds. All that is thanks to modular partial molds, paired with a vacu-forming technique.Exept is expected to debut this summer with a disc brake all-road bike design, adaptable to race or endurance geometry, as well as with a traditional round seatpost or a more integrated solution. Pricing for the frame and fork is said to start around 4500€, with complete bike builds also possible, and roughly up to an 8 week lead time. An aero road bike platform is also set to launch in 2018 as well, with aspirations possibly for adventure gravel and cross racing platforms in development as well.Exept’s process breaks customization down into easy to manage steps that they say is both scalable across cycling disciplines and will make it easy for them to customize bike to a global customer audience. They also have partnered with Fit4Bike to offer customer fits, as well as to inform their own geometry development. Buyers will have the chance to get a professional fit or collect the pertinent data themselves, often from a current bike fit they prefer.The Exept product development team has decades of experience in bike building, even working closely with retired, but one of the oldest, still-active frame builders in Italy who advise on everything from the artisan to historic sides of frame building.We will be sure to get more information out of the team at Eurobike, and their ‘next level custom rides’.Exept.cclast_img read more

Weekly unemployment claims increase for third week

first_imgNew unemployment claims increased for the third consecutive week to over 800. For’ the week of November 9, 2013, there were 864 new, regular benefit claims for Unemployment Insurance in Vermont. This is an increase of 81 from the previous week’s total, and 84 fewer than they were a year ago.Altogether 5,252’  new and continuing claims were filed, an increase of 432 from a week ago and 872 fewer than a year ago. The Department also processed 699 First Tier claims for benefits under Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (EUC08), an increase of 8 from the previous week.In addition, there were 13 Second Tier claims for benefits processed under the EUC08 program, which is 1 more than the week before. The Tier III program of extended benefits is being discontinued in Vermont as the state’s’ unemployment rate has been under the federal threshold for more than three months. ‘ The total for all programs was 5,972 claims, 438 more than last week but 1,5434 fewer than the same time last year.The Unemployment Weekly Report can be found at:’ http://www.vtlmi.info/(link is external). Previously released Unemployment Weekly Reports and other UI reports can be found at:’ http://www.vtlmi.info/lmipub.htm#uc(link is external)’ Vermont’s unemployment rate stayed at 4.6 percent in August; the release of the September rate has been delayed because of the federal shutdown. The September and October rate will be released November 22 and published on that day by vermontbiz.com.’ SEE AUGUST STORY.last_img read more

New neurons reveal clues about an individual’s autism

first_imgThe brains of some people with autism spectrum disorder grow faster than usual early on in life, often before diagnosis. A new study co-led by Salk Institute scientists has employed a cutting-edge stem cell technique to unravel the mechanisms driving the mysterious phenomenon of excess brain growth, which affects as many as 30 percent of people with autism.The findings, published July 6, 2016 in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, show that it is possible to use stem cell reprogramming technologies developed in the past decade to model the earliest stages of complex disorders and to evaluate potential therapeutic drugs.Intriguingly, the Salk team found that stem cell-derived neurons made fewer connections in the dish compared to cells from healthy individuals. Furthermore, the scientists were able to restore communication between the cells by adding IGF-1, a drug currently being evaluated in clinical trials of autism. “This technology allows us to generate views of neuron development that have historically been intractable,” says senior investigator Rusty Gage, a professor in Salk’s Laboratory of Genetics and holder of the Vi and John Adler Chair for Research on Age-Related Neurodegenerative Diseases. “We’re excited by the possibility of using stem cell methods to unravel the biology of autism and to possibly screen for new drug treatments for this debilitating disorder.”Autism, which affects approximately 1 out of every 68 children in the United States, is characterized by problems communicating, difficulties interacting with others, and in repetitive behaviors, although the symptoms range dramatically in type and severity. There is no known cause of autism.In 2010, Gage, Carol Marchetto of Salk’s Laboratory of Genetics, Alysson Muotri of the University of California, San Diego, and their collaborators showed they could recreate features of Rett syndrome–a rare disorder that shares features of autism but is caused by mutations in a single gene–in a petri dish.They did so by taking skin cells from patients, adding a mix of chemicals that instructed those cells to form stem cells, and in turn, coaxing their new stem cells into neurons. The ability to form what’s called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from human cells was pioneered by researchers in 2007, but some scientists were initially skeptical that the new technology could lend insight into complex heritable disorders such as autism.“In that study, induced pluripotent stem cells gave us a window into the birth of a neuron that we would not otherwise have,” says Marchetto, a senior staff scientist and the study’s first author. “Seeing features of Rett syndrome in a dish gave us the confidence to next study classical autism.”In the new study, collaborating with Muotri and other scientists at UCSD once more, Gage’s team created stem cells from a subset of people with autism whose brains had grown up to 23 percent faster than usual during toddlerhood but had subsequently normalized.The neuron precursor cells derived from the patients multiplied faster than those of typically developing individuals. The finding supports a theory some experts have put forth that brain enlargement is caused by disruptions to the cell’s normal cycle of division, Marchetto says. In addition, the stem cell-derived neurons of individuals with autism behaved abnormally, bursting with activity less often compared with those cells of healthy people.Those neurons’ activity seemed to improve by adding IGF-1, which is known to enhance the connections between neurons. The group plans to use the patient cells to investigate the molecular mechanisms behind IGF-1’s effects, in particular probing for changes in gene expression with treatment.Although the newly derived cells are far from patients’ brains, a brain cell by itself may reveal important clues about a person, Marchetto says. “It never fails to amaze me when we can see similarities between the characteristics of the cells in the dish and the human disease,” she adds.

first_img UN Summit on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Sep 27, 2019 Sep 25, 2019 CARICOM Member States continue to be active on many prominent issues, including climate change, the Post-2015 Development Agenda and Financing for Development. …Your Governments have already taken significant steps to meet the vital challenges ahead, including through the adoption last July of the Strategic Plan for CARICOM over the next five years. I look forward to hearing your views in how to strengthen the already strong partnership between the United Nations and CARICOM to advance our common goals.” UN Secretary General Ban Ki -moon speaking to Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Leaders on the margins of the General Assembly debate at UN Headquarters, New York, September 27, 2014. Thank you for coming here today.I saw some of you earlier this month in Samoa. I wanted to also have the opportunity to meet with you at the outset of the General Debate.CARICOM Member States continue to be active on many prominent issues, including climate change, the Post-2015 Development Agenda and Financing for Development.During his year as General Assembly President, Ambassador John Ashe was a steadfast advocate for UN values and for CARICOM.And Ambassador Sandra Honoré has provided outstanding service as my Special Representative for Haiti and Head of MINUSTAH.I wish to take this opportunity to pay a special tribute to two visionary leaders of the Caribbean who passed away recently.The Honourable Arthur Robinson, former Prime Minister and President of Trinidad and Tobago, played a critical role in the establishment of the International Criminal Court.  Professor Norman Girvan, one of the most distinguished Caribbean scholars of his time, served as my Personal Representative.Both left an important legacy for the region and the world.I look forward to continuing to hear the voice of the Caribbean.An immediate challenge is how to integrate the particular vulnerabilities of the Caribbean into the Post-2015 Development Agenda, whilst retaining the focus on the remaining MDGs as well as the implementation of the SAMOA Pathway Outcome Document.Addressing social development needs and building economic and environmental resilience will be central to the implementation of sustainable development goals in the Caribbean.Your Governments have already taken significant steps to meet the vital challenges ahead, including through the adoption last July of the Strategic Plan for CARICOM over the next five years.I look forward to hearing your views on how to strengthen the already strong partnership between the United Nations and CARICOM to advance our common goals.Thank you.
