When Melvin Davis was carried into the emergency room last Thursday, a doctor noticed something wasn’t right. “Soon after we arrived at Erlanger with a patient, [the ER doctor] visually determined the wrong IV bag was hung and reported it to the supervisor,” said Chief Ken Wilkerson, who oversees Hamilton County Medical Services.WRCB TV: EMS used wrong IV in Melvin Davis transport
Despite those results, Young said Toledo’s previous experiences with his opponents — especially Gosea, who returned to Illinois this year — will help in his upcoming meet. During this season, freshmen Felix Corwin and Matic Spec have contributed 27 singles victories apiece for the Gophers. “The guys are doing a great job staying positive and working hard during practices,” head coach Geoff Young said. “They believe that they can play at a good enough level to win.” He lost 6-4, 6-4 against Farris Gosea of Illinois and 7-6 (7-0), 6-0, 7-6 (7-4) to Raleigh Smith of Northwestern. No. 33 Minnesota is set to face third-ranked Illinois and Northwestern, two teams right next to the Gophers in the Big Ten standings. “We just want to be reliable for our guys,” Corwin said. “So far, we have done a great job, and we are bringing energy to our courts to help the other guys out.” Gophers open up weekend with tough opponentsDaily File Photo, Liam James DoyleFreshman Felix Corwin volleys the ball at the Baseline Tennis Center on March 6 against Washington. Danny ChenApril 16, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThe Gophers saved one of their most challenging weekends of the regular season for last. “We just have to get ourselves in the frame of mind of winning,” he said. “It’s a good opportunity for us, and we hope to finish the season with wins.” “Every day, we just try to maximize our games and do the things that let us play the best tennis,” Young said. “If that’s good enough to be successful against those teams, then it’s great. If not, then we will learn from it and be better off for it.” Minnesota lost to both Illinois and Northwestern last year 5-1 and 7-0, respectively. And being at home, where Minnesota is 10-0, gives the team a better chance to get it done. Senior Leandro Toledo didn’t have much success individually against either of his opponents. However, Young said they don’t change their practice regime just because they’re set to play a quality opponent. Minnesota is currently tied for second, while Illinois is first and Northwestern is fourth. “This is our last home weekend for the regular season, and we are just really pumped to play top teams,” Corwin said. This will be Corwin and Spec’s first meet against a top-three team in the nation in Illinois, and Corwin said there is a little bit more energy than usual during practice. The Gophers are eager to face both Illinois and Northwestern, and Corwin said his team will come out with lots of energy. “He’s played them both before, and I think that he knows what to expect,” Young said. “He knows how the guy will play, so there won’t be any surprises.”
Read the whole story: The New York Times More of our Members in the Media > At work is present bias, our natural tendency to place our short-term needs and desires ahead of our long-term needs and desires. A lot of the time this comes in the form of procrastination, and there have also been many studies that suggest it’s a primary reason we’re bad at saving for retirement. (You might know that by another name, hyperbolic discounting: Most people would prefer $100 today instead of $110 tomorrow, for example.)Like many cognitive biases, this is a counterproductive behavior that we’re programmed to engage in, and some studies have suggested that we do this because we perceive our future selves the same way we perceive total strangers. I have this awful, corny joke I trot out whenever I’m glossing over details for future plans with friends or brushing off something I don’t want to deal with: “That’s Future Tim’s problem. Let that chump deal with it.”Poor, poor Future Tim. Constantly set up for failure by that jerk Past Tim.As Present Tim — who, ahem, is always on top of things — I can say that Past Tim isn’t bad. He’s just wired that way. And I’m sure as you’re reading this, a few instances come to mind of when Past You has, quite inconsiderably, set up Future You for failure.Why do we do this to ourselves? What makes us act against our own self-interest, even when we are acutely aware we’re doing so?
A 400th Liga goal for Lionel Messi and a brace from Luis Suarezsaw Barcelona breeze past Eibar at Camp Nou on Saturday evening and the champions are now five points clear at the competition’s halfway stage.Messi found spaces hard to come by in a tight first half and it was Suarez who opened the scoring after he played a one-two with Philippe Coutinho and advanced into the box and kept his balance to beat Eibar goalkeeper Asier Riesgo with an excellent left-footed finish.Barca wrapped up the three points in a flurry of chances early in the second half.Tthe Catalans doubled their lead after Coutinho and Suarez combined for Messi, who slotted low past Riesgo and inside the far post to net his 400th goal in La Liga.That new milestone for the Argentine was greeted with big cheers at Camp Nou, but there was more to come just a few minutes later as a Sergi Roberto throw-in from the right found Suarez and the Uruguayan set off on a diagonal run which culminated in him finding an angle to fire past Riesgo and make it 3-0.Substitute Pablo De Blasi tested Marc-Andre ter Stegen at the other end, but Barca also missed chances to add to their lead and ran out 3-0 winners.
NATCHITOCHES – A chance to notch a 20-win season for the 12th time in school history, while hosting a national postseason tournament game Thursday night, is one of the incentives for the NCAA’s highest-scoring team as Northwestern State faces the University of Tennessee at Martin in a 6:30 p.m. CollegeInsider.com Tournament first-round game at Prather Coliseum.The Demons (19-12) and Skyhawks (18-12) square off for the second time ever with the winner advancing to a CIT second-round game against an opponent at a site to be determined later Thursday night. The NSU-UT Martin matchup is the last of 16 first-round CIT contests this week.“It is a great opportunity to bring in a quality non-conference opponent. It’s a chance to get to No. 20, and it’s a chance to make a step toward winning a national tournament,” said 16th-year Demons coach Mike McConathy. “It’s not the ultimate goal, the NCAA Tournament, but it’s very good mid-major teams around the country and one will be a champion. We’d like to be that team.”The matchup is the first national tournament game in Prather Coliseum since NSU joined NCAA Division I in 1976. It’s also appealing because it comes after state high school basketball playoffs are finished, said McConathy.“That’s exciting for us. So many times this season, because of the new Southland Conference schedule, we had games conflicting with high schools around the area, and that was frustrating for us and for basketball fans who often had to choose which game to attend. Now, this is the only game around,” he said. “We hope people will come see two good teams play a postseason game in Prather Coliseum.“There’s a lot of energy. People are excited about the chance to continue playing basketball and our players are excited about the opportunity to play in front of the home crowd again,” said McConathy.The Demons lead the country with an 84.1 scoring average, half provided by two of the country’s top point producers. Zeek Woodley’s 22.6 average is second nationally while Jalan West is 19th at 19.6 per game.West leads the country with a 7.7 assists average, is 17th in steals per game (2.1), 26th in assist to turnover ratio (plus 2.7), 32nd in free throw shooting (86.1 percent) while also ranking 47th in free throw attempts (194). The 5-10 junior is 33rd in 3-point shooting aim (41.1 percent) and 72nd with 2.5 treys made per game.UT Martin has a balanced lineup topped by point guard Deville Smith, a UNLV transfer averaging 13.8 points, 4.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds per game, and shooting guard Alex Anderson, who is scoring 16.0 per game over the last nine games.“They have a very impressive team that nearly beat (nationally-ranked Ohio Valley Conference champion) Murray State twice and played well against some other quality programs,” said McConathy. “They’re very well coached, they have some explosive, talented players, and we’re going to need to continue playing at a high level. We’ve made a nice run at the end of the year.”The Demons, who have won 11 of their last 14 games with NCAA Tournament entry Stephen F. Austin the only team to defeat them in that stretch, will play their second game without sophomore forward Tra’von Joseph, who had knee surgery Tuesday. Senior center Marvin Frazier is back from an ankle injury that sidelined him for more than five weeks.“Marvin didn’t get to play on his Senior Day at home, so we’re looking at this game as his opportunity to perform in Prather Coliseum perhaps for the last time,” said McConathy. “Getting him back last week helped us handle losing Tra’von a little better. We have to get some other guys to step up and fill that role, and we have guys who can help. Tra’von was very productive and very versatile for us.”Ticket prices are $25 for VIP seating, $15 for upper level reserved seats, $15 for UT Martin fan section seating and $10 for general admission seats in 3,400-seat Prather Coliseum. NSU students are free with presentation of a current NSU ID. Coaches cards are not redeemable for complimentary tickets for postseason games.NSU’s ticket office can be reached at 318-357-4268 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily through Thursday. All sales can be accomplished online through the NSUTickets.com website.Fans are encouraged to purchase in advance to reduce lines at ticket windows at the arena Thursday night. Student and alumni association tailgating parties will be staged in and around Prather Coliseum.Thursday night’s contest can be heard on the Demon Sports Network, flagshipped by 100.7 KZBL in Natchitoches and including SportsTalk 100.7 FM and SuperTalk 1340 AM KRMD in Shreveport, and KWLA 103.1 FM in Anacoco.

Are you a Serie A footballer and haven’t been linked with a move to Everton in recent months? If so, you may need to have a word with your agent. Since Carlo Ancelotti moved to the Premier League club, the Toffees have been linked with more than twenty players from Serie A, with there being stories every day in the Italian media.Some of the links look to be part of hyping players and helping them get new contracts or smoke out interest from elsewhere. Of course, some of the claims of interest will be genuine and that’s felt the way with several options, including Napoli’s Allan.SportMediaSet now bring another name into the picture: Daniel Maldini.They made the claims at the weekend, and the news has since travelled around the Italian media having little aspects added.SportMediaSet reported Everton have repeatedly asked about signing Maldini ‘in recent months’, and keep getting ‘negative’ answers from AC Milan, which don’t seem to be discouraging them.Maldini, the son of AC Milan legend Paolo, is an 18 year old attacking midfielder, who has played for Italy at U18 and U19 level.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
