Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer doesn’t have any opinion, though. In fact, he said he doesn’t deserve to have an opinion yet.That’s something he has to earn as a head coach.“Maybe someday, when I’m respected enough as a head coach,” Shafer said, “I can weigh in on those things a little better.”He said the matter is out of his control and not something he focuses on. Instead, his main concern is helping his team get better every day and practicing what he preaches to his players.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“There’s always going to be issues with how much, how little, all that back and forth,” Shafer said, “but I don’t feel comfortable or have a big opinion on that right now.” Comments
Yet, even while Liverpool’s results have remained positive, they have rarely been accompanied by the level of performance they achieved on their run to the Champions League final last season.The prolific front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, who combined for 91 goals last season, have all suffered a downturn in form at different stages through the first three months of the campaign.Firmino has scored just once in his last 11 games for club and country, but even on a night when Klopp tried to give the Brazilian a rare rest, he was thrown on at half-time in Belgrade after his back-up Daniel Sturridge missed a glorious chance to put Liverpool ahead.“We had the first big chance – Daniel with a very big one. Each goal in a game like this leads the game in a specific direction,” lamented Klopp.Liverpool’s options in reserve were supposed to ensure a stronger challenge both in domestic and European competition this season.Over £160 million ($210.5 million) was spent on new recruits, but only goalkeeper Alisson Becker has become a first-team regular as midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri have largely been left on the sidelines.Once more in Liverpool’s hour of need in the Serbian capital, Fabinho and Keita were left on the bench for the full 90 minutes, while Shaqiri didn’t even make the trip due to political sensitivities after the Kosovo-born Swiss international’s controversial goal celebration against Serbia at the World Cup.Klopp needs to find a way to utilise his new resources and rediscover Liverpool’s mojo quickly to avoid an embarrassing early European exit.Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Champions League finalists just six months ago, Liverpool hoped a summer of heavy investment could take them one step further to a sixth European Cup, but a shock 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade leaves them struggling to even make it out of the group stages.While Anfield remains a fortress on European nights for the Reds, a worrying trend is emerging for Jurgen Klopp on the road, particularly with a visit to Paris Saint-Germain to come next in three weeks’ time.Liverpool didn’t manage a single shot on target in losing 1-0 at Napoli last month and were also opened up in a 4-2 defeat to Roma in the second leg of last season’s semi-final, progressing only thanks to a 5-2 first leg win.“I saw, unfortunately, a few games like this already and it’s really difficult to find your mojo back,” surmised Klopp as Belgrade rocked to Red Star’s first win in the competition for 26 years.All is far from lost. Liverpool remain tied with Napoli at the top of Group C on six points. Four points from their last two games would be enough to guarantee the Reds’ progress to the last 16.However, losing to what should have been the whipping boys of the group has made their task a much harder one.“We need to make sure it will not happen again, otherwise it will be difficult because the next game is an away game again and the last one is a very difficult home game against Napoli,” added Klopp.“We have to make sure in Paris we do better. There were a lot of moments when we could get in control of the game and we didn’t do it, we made the wrong decisions.”– New recruits left unused –Liverpool’s start to the Premier League season has been a different story. Still unbeaten after 11 games, the only points they have dropped came in draws against other sides in the top five in Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.
A 28-year-old mother has been arrested by the Palm Beach Sheriffs Office after she reportedly threatened to carry out a school shooting because she was upset that her children were being forced to attend Barton Elementary School in Lake Worth after the district rezoned the schools in the area.The incident was reported around 8:00 am Sunday.According to the report, the mother, Miranda Perez, was video chatting with a friend on Facebook messager where she began talking about Nikolas Cruz who is accused of killing 17 people at a school in Parkland and told her friend that “she was going to Facebook friend Zachary Cruz because she likes ‘violent things.’”After ending the video message, Perez wrote in Facebook Messenger, “I’m thinking of doing a school shooting at Barton,” and that it was the school’s fault.The friend then contacted the police who conducted an interview on Perez. The mother admitted to sending the messages about conducting a shooting at the school but claimed “she would never actually do it.”She has since been arrested and remains at the Palm Beach County jail on $5,000 bond. She faces one charge of sending a written threat to commit bodily injury.
Rescue MissionA graphic artist by trade, Katharine Koehler has always had a “passion for junk.” Her Middletown house and those of friends’ are filled with furniture, knickknacks and assorted items that she has rescued and refurbished.She admits that one of her favorite lines is: “Why are you getting rid of that?”Koehler wanted to turn this obscure talent into a way to help people who may not have the extra money to decorate their homes.“Then Sandy came along and I knew this is where I can help. This is what I feel passionate about,” she said.Koehler recruited friends with decorating, artistic and even garage-sale shopping skills, and started a blog and the arduous paperwork to set up a nonprofit. She then began collecting furniture, odds and ends and called for donations.Although not specifically intended to be a Sandy-relief organization, with 85 percent of Union Beach affected by the storm, Koehler said it made sense to start there. She created Room in Our Hearts to help people in crisis. “This is where our focus is right now.”With a motto: “I can fix that,” Koehler and her volunteers have turned discarded items into treasured pieces.Along with the revamped items, Room in Our Hearts has received generous donations of new items from individuals, corporate sponsors and local businesses. Value City Furniture in Middletown has donated floor models and slightly dinged furniture, and Middletown’s Carpet Value Outlet provided free carpeting for each family’s newly decorated room.“I love to be creative but, it’s good to mix the new with the old,” said Koehler, who stressed the importance of recycling and reusing items and not adding to landfills.When Kathryn Rodgers agreed to be the first recipient of a Room in Our Hearts room redo, she didn’t know what to expect.“Katharine (Koehler) came to my house and we were under construction,” Rodgers said. “We were sitting on buckets while we were spackling. I couldn’t even fathom what could be done with that room.”But the result, she said, was remarkable. Theresa Carbone, the room’s project manager, Koehler and the volunteers created a beautiful space.“Their vision came from a construction site,” Rodgers said. “And now the room is absolutely gorgeous … And they are an amazing group of people.”The family could not move back home until the kitchen and bathroom were functioning and Room in Our Hearts finished the living room at the same time. So after five months, Tyler and family moved back home the day of the “big reveal.”From the terra-cotta bench and the play area designed for Tyler to the simple white coat rack that greets visitors in the entryway, Rodgers said she’s thrilled.“I love it all,” she said. “There’s lots of organization and storage and complementary colors.”There’s still so much to do, inside and outside the home, but the family is reinvigorated by the new living room.“To have at least one finished room gives us this boost,” said Rodgers. “We can push forward to finish our home.”For information or to donate furniture and décor items, visit http://roominourhearts.org/. By Judy O’Gorman AlvarezGroup Offers Hope and a Room RedoFive-year-old Tyler Blewitt and his family were greeted by friends, well-wishers and dignitaries, as they moved back to their Union Beach home last month. The family had fled after Super Storm Sandy roared through their house in late October.Five-year-old Tyler Blewitt, his dad Jay Blewitt and mom Kathryn Rodgers of Union Beach smile in their newly refurbished living room supplied by Room in Our Hearts.Although Tyler’s dad and older siblings worked hard to get their house fit to live in again, the family was overwhelmed and grateful to find a crisp, new, warmly decorated living room, with handsome furniture and a brightly organized play area complete with toys and books to cheer a 5-year-old boy.“The room looks like it belongs in a magazine,” said Kathryn Rodgers, Tyler’s mom.Thanks to some big-hearted and creative volunteers from Room in Our Hearts, a nonprofit organization that creatively and sustainably redesigns a room in the home of people affected by disaster, Tyler and his family had a brand new living room.Each room redesigned by Room in Our Hearts includes furniture, artwork, home décor and other artifacts from recycled or refashioned items. Volunteer decorators, artists and craftspeople create a space – mixing the old with the new – to bring warmth, comfort and a sense of normalcy to a family who has experienced loss and disruption in their lives.Tyler, a pre-kindergartner, was born prematurely with supraventrical tachycardia (SVT), a heart condition that causes the heart to beat abnormally fast. Despite a tough start in life, he has been living without medication for the last few years. When Super Storm Sandy hit Union Beach, the youngster had just celebrated his birthday. The family was forced to evacuate, leaving everything – including Tyler’s birthday presents. When the storm surged through their house, it destroyed the contents of the family’s first floor.Tyler Blewitt, 5, jumps right into his newly designed play area.The stress pushed Tyler into an SVT episode a few days later and he was rushed to the emergency room. Afterward, he wound up in Saint Peter’s University Hospital’s CHOP – Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia – pediatric cardiology unit.Since then, the family has focused on getting Tyler well – he is doing better now on medication – and cleaning out and repairing their home. Tyler’s dad has spent almost every day since the storm repairing the home in preparation for the family’s return.That meant the family was a perfect candidate for a Room in Our Hearts renovation.

Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Aaron Forth, VP of product for personal finance and budgeting service at Mint. com, talked at SXSW this week about the challenges the company faced when going mobile. As a service whose business model depends on people visiting the Mint.com website, the decision to launch a mobile application was not one the company took lightly, Forth said.But Mint did decide go mobile, launching first on iPhone, then on Android, after studying the actions of its mobile user base. And now, Mint is planning to launch a brand-new iPad application in just a few months – a prospect that has the company again rethinking its product for the tablet’s multitouch interface.Case Study: Mint Goes MobileMint says that the majority of its users have a phone connected their account with the service, and 20% are relying only on a mobile phone. Given those demographics, the company knew it wanted to serve the mobile audience with native applications.Forth then explained the thought process the company went through when creating its first mobile app (the iPhone version of Mint). The results make for an interesting case study which other developers may be able to learn from.Step 1: Pick Your Platforms CarefullyForth said that when it came to making a decision about what devices to launch its applications on, the first thing they looked at was device adoption trends. What devices have good market share?, they wanted to know. The answer was Android and iPhone and Android, each which have “massive distribution,” said Forth.Another important factor was whether or not the platforms they chose would have a way to get apps directly to consumers via an app store environment. Again, both iPhone and Android filled this need.Finally, they needed a platform where there was a good SDK available and developer support. In this area, Forth said Mint found that Apple’s strict guidelines didn’t interfere with development, but actually helped them understand very simply what they could and could not do. They didn’t have to figure out the phone, he said, they could just focus on development.Another key factor in the decision was finding a platform where there was low fragmentation. “It’s hard enough to support multiple browsers and versions,” said Forth. Mint wanted to find platforms that had a fragmentation strategy plan. Apple is great example of this, he said.Once the company decided what platforms it wanted to build apps for, it created some general goals. For example, the company decided it wanted to earn a top three position in the free finance category and it wanted to take advantage of specific platform features available to native apps, because that would make it more likely that platform maker would highlight the app within its store as a showcase example of its platform.Finally, Mint wanted to deliver on-the-go utility to its users, and make Mint easy to access. But most importantly, because Mint needed visitors to its website to earn revenue, it decided to build its mobile app as more of a companion to the site, instead of a standalone application. Step 2: Figure Out What’s TransferrableThe second question Mint needed to address was to figure out what’s reused versus what’s new when going from the Web app to mobile. “You basically tear down the idea of what your product is when you go mobile,” said Forth.On the “reused” side, there was only brand and positioning, the finance data and the user profile that was ported to the mobile app from the Web. Everything else was new. This included, of course, the UI itself – the interaction and visual design involving gesturing, a one-button interface on iPhone and the fact that there’s not a lot of typing involved when using mobile apps. It also included new security features where encrypted protocols were used to exchange data, plus the use of passcodes and more.Also new were to the company were the skills involved in the app’s creation (languages like Objective C and Cocoa), the different development environments used, the QA process and the authentication methods.Even the service layer and architecture was new, because the layer of APIs used for the earlier Mint Web app were different from ones that support the mobile app. On a phone, explained Forth, the app needs to be more efficient when delivering the payload of data to the device. It’s bursting data to you upon loading, instead of streaming data to you, like on the Web.Step 3: What is the End User Experience You Want?Finally, Mint wanted to focus on the user experience, keeping in mind that the mobile app will serve different needs than Web app, and its design needed to evolve in order to embrace device it runs on.Mint designed the app to focus on core jobs using simple screens: an overview screen, accounts screen, expenditures screen and budget screen.In a later version of app, Mint made it easier for new users to sign up for the service directly from the app itself. This was important to the company because Mint’s users with mobile phone are more engaged than the others. After 4 weeks, 20% of Mint’s new sign-ups were from mobile, said Forth. Mint Coming to iPad!Now Mint is developing its first iPad application, which again is forcing the company to redefine what its app is. The tablet form factor offers new possibilities, and new use cases, said Forth. Within the iPad app, some of its graphic libraries will be built in HTML5, for example, when previously on the Web, its graphics were built with Flex.It will also incorporate gesturing for things like categorizing transactions, which will work via drag-and-drop. Like its iPhone counterpart, the iPad app will be more similar to the iPhone than website, as there won’t be a deep, exhaustive set of menus. It will serve as a companion to the website as well.In the Q&A session at the end of the talk, an audience member asked why Mint didn’t launch on iPhone and Android at the same time. “In an ideal world, we would,” said Forth. But there were time constraints. Also, Mint’s developers were more comfortable and familiar with iOS, which made it easier to launch there first. If there is etiquette around when to launch on different platforms, we probably broke it, Forth said.

It doesn’t make any sense. I think they’ve got to look into that. That’s frustrating when things out of your hands hurt you. But at the same time, that’s not why we lost the game.”Aaron Gordon scored 28 points and made a driving, go-ahead layup with 5 seconds to play for the Magic, who trailed 106-97 before scoring 10 straight points. Lopez then drew a foul while backing into the low post with 0.6 seconds left, and he coolly made both free throws.“I knew I was going to hit them,” Lopez said. “It was bizarre. I guess we had the game-winning jump ball.”Lonzo Ball had 16 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Lakers, who broke open a tie game with an 11-0 run midway through the fourth quarter, capped by Lopez’s thunderous dunk with 6:09 to play. But the Magic stormed back and trimmed LA’s lead to 106-105 when Jonathon Simmons made one of two free throws with 33 seconds left.Isaiah Thomas added 13 points and nine assists off the bench for the Lakers, who thrived despite the absence of leading scorer Brandon Ingram for the third straight game due to a strained groin.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

When the Magic inbounded the ball at midcourt after Lopez’s free throws, the clock started before anyone had touched the long pass. But because the mistake was technically a clock malfunction, the officials said the teams must have a jump ball at center court instead of replaying the possession, effectively preventing the Magic from getting a final chance to win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Just common sense would tell me in that situation, if the clock started early, just redo the possession,” Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. “They felt otherwise.”The weird ending ruined an otherwise thrilling finish between the Magic, who have lost nine of 11, and the surging Lakers, who have won six of seven.

ST. LOUIS— The New York Mets left 25 men on base and went 1 for 26 with runners in scoring position. In the end, they still managed to pull out a win.Ruben Tejada hit a sacrifice fly in the 18th inning and Mets outlasted the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 Sunday in the second-longest game this season.Boston beat the Yankees in 19 innings in April. In this one, it took 5 hours, 55 minutes for the Mets to top the NL Central-leading Cardinals and avoid a three-game sweep.After Tejada’s bases-loaded fly gave New York the lead, Eric Campbell drove in another run with a squeeze bunt.“Weird stat,” Campbell said. “Not something to be proud of but you get the ‘W’ and it makes everything else better.”New York loaded the bases in the 18th on singles by Wilmer Flores and Curtis Granderson followed by a sacrifice from Plawecki that Martinez didn’t cleanly handle. Tejada followed with his deep fly and Campbell then bunted.The game was scoreless until both teams got a run in the 13th.Carlos Torres (3-4), the seventh Mets pitcher, gave up one hit in two innings.Carlos Martinez (10-4), who was scheduled to start on Tuesday night, was pressed into relief and was the Cardinals’ eighth pitcher. He allowed five hits and four walks in four innings.“We were trying to stay away from Martinez but it got to the point where it was not possible,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “We needed him to come in and pitch some tough innings.”The Mets got 16 hits and drew 13 walks. Kevin Plawecki hit an RBI single for their lone run until the 18th.The Cardinals got 13 hits, including Kolten Wong’s leadoff homer in the 13th inning, and five walks. St. Louis went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position.“We just couldn’t push it across when we needed,” Matheny said. “It’s a shame but they just kept coming.”New York put at least one runner on base in every inning except the first and had runners in scoring position in all nine extra innings. The futile hitting with runners in scoring position was the majors’ worst since at least 1974.The Mets’ total of stranded runners tied the third-most in major league history and they became the first team since Kansas City on June 6, 1991, to leave as many runners on and still win. Only Philadelphia (27) in 1973 and San Diego (26) in 1979 left more runners stranded in a game — and both teams lost.“That’s not good,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “We aren’t happy about that. Neither are some of the guys that left them on. I’ve never seen more flying helmets in my life.”Mets starter Jonathon Niese gave up five hits in 7 2/3 innings. Cardinals rookie Tim Cooney pitched three-hit ball for 5 2/3 innings.This wasn’t the first time these teams endured a scoring drought against each other at Busch Stadium. They played 18 scoreless innings on April 17, 2010, before both teams scored in the 19th and the Mets won 2-1 in the 20th.Granderson doubled in the 13th and scored on Plawecki’s single off Carlos Villaneuva.Wong tied it with his homer off Jeurys Familia. Jhonny Peralta singled with one out and went to third on a two-out double by Yadier Molina before Familia struck out Tommy Pham to extend the game.TRAINER’S ROOMMets: OF Michael Cuddyer said after the game he might have to go on the disabled list if his sore left knee doesn’t respond to treatment scheduled for Monday. He left the game in the bottom of the eighth after singling in the top of the inning.Cardinals: OF Jason Heyward didn’t start after exiting Saturday night’s game because of leg cramps. Heyward also has been dealing with a head cold that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said has been making the rounds through the clubhouse. Heyward later pinch hit.UP NEXTMets: Trailing Washington by two games in the NL East, New York opens a three-game series Monday at Nationals Park.
