Also arrested was Savannah Emich, 20, who had allegedly been on the run with Sargent and is a suspect in one of the shootings that left two people wounded near a state park in Indiana, officials said. “The task force here in Ohio worked around the clock with its local partners and law enforcement across the county to locate and apprehend this pair of violent individuals,” U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said in a statement.The three-state shooting rampage began on Aug. 17, when Sargent allegedly shot and wounded a 29-year-old man on a section of the Towpath Trail in Akron, police said. The victim, who was living at a homeless campsite on the trail and was acquainted with Sargent, was shot multiple times and helped police identify Sargent as the suspected shooter, according to Akron police.The following day, Sargent is suspected of fatally shooting his girlfriend, Rebecca Tomlinson, 22, whose body was discovered near a set of railroad tracks in Akron, according to police.Sargent also is suspected in the slaying of a 62-year-old man who was shot on the morning of Aug. 19 while driving a car on a highway in Milton, West Virginia, according to authorities.Hours after the West Virginia shooting, police believe Sargent and Emich, also of Ohio, drove to Indiana. On the night of Aug. 19, police believe Sargent and Emich opened fire on an SUV occupied by a family of three near the entrance to O’Bannon Woods State Park in Corydon, Indiana.The driver of the SUV and his wife were wounded and the vehicle crashed into a tree, according to Indiana State Police. A 16-year-old girl, sitting in the backseat was not harmed, police said.A motive for the shooting rampage is under investigation.Sargent and Emich were being held in South Dakota pending extradition back to Ohio, authorities said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Saving the season: How NASCAR’s broadcast partners adapted amid COVID-19 in 2020

first_img“That was our mantra: How do we produce this safely and more efficiently so that the viewer can’t really tell the difference?,” said Bill Wanger, FOX Sports’ executive vice president and head of programming and scheduling. “Yeah, they might notice people are wearing masks and they might notice instead of four pit reporters we have one. But we’re still telling the story of the race.”For NASCAR’s broadcast partners, FOX took the brunt of the coronavirus impact. Its equipment was already set up at Atlanta Motor Speedway back in March when the sanctioning body postponed that race weekend and then eventually seven more, all of which were FOX’s to broadcast.Normally, FOX and NBC split the season. FOX is responsible for the first 16 races, along with any additional events such as the Busch Clash, Bluegreen Vacation Duels, All-Star Open and All-Star Race. NBC then takes over for the remainder of the schedule – 20 races, including the playoffs.COVID-19: Timeline, schedule, driver and track messagesIt wasn’t a seamless handoff this year. NBC kept its events and FOX remained in charge of those rescheduled, leaving the two networks to switch off briefly in July.FOX was affected first, though, and therefore the most.“In those early days, I guess May when we restarted, there weren’t a lot of sports back,” Wanger said. “NASCAR was the first major sport back. So, we did have a lot of open windows. You didn’t get a lot of pushback from us in terms of, is May 20 open? Because pretty much it was.”Conversations started with scheduling. FOX representatives were on the phone with NASCAR’s Ben Baker (managing director, domestic broadcasting) and Brian Herbst (senior vice president, media and productions) twice a week, figuring out which tracks would work when. Proximity to Charlotte, North Carolina, where a majority of the teams resided, was prioritized for safety reasons.Even that was easier said than done.“I didn’t even think about it,” said NASCAR’s vice president of racing development, Ben Kennedy, who worked heavily on the revamped 2020 schedule. “Some of these tracks, you look at a map and it’s like, ‘Oh, it’s actually pretty close, you can do it within driving distance.’ But you don’t take into account the time it takes to tear down at the track and then the time it takes to build up at the track particularly on the TV side.”According to a FOX Sports Media Relations spokesperson, setting up required more than twice the time it did under normal circumstances due to limited personnel numbers and social-distancing protocol. The road crew needed two full days to travel and unload.That was important to consider when mid-week races preceded weekend events, especially in the event of a rain postponement.“We adopted the PACE model of planning,” said Tom Bryant, NASCAR managing director of racing operations. “Here is our Primary plan, here is our Alternate plan, here is our Contingency plan and here is our Emergency plan for each one.”These were things NASCAR and FOX needed to handle before even scheduling an event. The races themselves were then a learning curve all on their own.FOX had about half its usual manpower and half its usual camera count at track. Only two people were allowed in the productions truck during the race. As Wanger noted, there was one pit-road reporter – Vince Welch, Jamie Little, Matt Yocum or Regan Smith – as opposed to the usual four for Cup Series events.Booth personalities Mike Joy, Jeff Gordon and Larry McReynolds, along with their support staff, worked remotely from FOX Sports’ Charlotte studio. Graphics and replay responsibilities moved to the Los Angeles headquarters.All those unorthodox adjustments came on top of a busy return: three national series events at Darlington scheduled from May 17-21, bookended by a pair of Cup Series races.“It allowed us, at that first particular race in Darlington, to get two races under our belt within a couple days without having to travel to a different track so that we can get our sea legs underneath us in terms of how we produced it,” Wanger said. “That was really important to us, and that was something that we really stressed with NASCAR that we needed another race right after the first race from the same location.”FOX continued to include pre-race festivities – invocation, national anthem and command to fire engines – but did so remotely and virtually with the honorary guests. For example, numerous medical professionals gave the command for the Cup Series’ first race back – the Real Heroes 400. All of their videos were personally pre-recorded and sent into FOX for editing and broadcasting purposes.From start to finish, FOX didn’t seem to miss a beat with on-air responsibilities, even if there were some kinks that needed to be worked out along the way. Then, when NBC’s broadcast duties began, the network continued the seamless operation through to the postseason and present day.“If you’re a fan at home watching, this is the same great racing you expect to see, the same high-quality broadcasting you expect to see,” Bryant said. “We couldn’t have had any degradation of the product. But at the same time, we had to protect our people.”PART 4: TEAMS Editor’s note: This is Part III of a five-part series detailing how NASCAR successfully ran its 2020 season amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Part I: Overview | Part II: Schedule | Part IV, Wednesday: Teams | Part V, Thursday: FansThe roof cam on the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford carries the viewer to the white flag at Darlington Raceway before panning out to show the full car on its final lap around the 1.366-mile track. The moment Kevin Harvick takes the checkered flag, the in-car camera captures his celebratory fist pump and congratulatory radio shouts. The scene quickly cuts to teammates celebrating on pit road.This isn’t any normal NASCAR race weekend, and the only giveaway in this moment is the lack of fans in the stands as the drone camera follows Harvick’s burnout on the frontstretch. Harvick was the NASCAR Cup Series’ first winner after a two-month shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. FOX Sports managed to make it look like business as usual.last_img read more

PBE15: Womo Designs TRIs Out Bottle and Light/camera Mounts for Aero Bars, Adds Mounts…

first_imgSince the last time we checked out Womo designs, their product portfolio has drastically expanded. In an ever expanding marketplace of lightweight computer mounts, Womo’s dual clamp aluminum designs may  have come off as way over built. However, the company seems to have found its stride offering support for multiple accessories – not just computers. They also provide the ability to run one accessory above and one below, including their latest addition of water bottles… Marketed towards triathletes or anyone who could use a bottle close at hand between their clip on aerobars, the new Koala Bottle options allow for dual use with a light or camera below, or by the looks of their website a single sided option is in the works for just the bottle and cage. The Womo dual mount is thin enough to fit between most clip on aero bars and offers enough support for the full water bottle and additional accessory beneath. Thanks to the magnetic bottle cage, riders can easily grab the bottle from the bars.Cameras and lights can also be attached to all of the Womo mounts with the new swivel kits which allow for 360º of rotation.Womo will also be offering bottle cage mounts to fit beneath their computer mounts. The mount will use a standard two bolt boss to fit any bottle cage. Due in part to the universal nature of their mountain bracket, Womo is able to create mounts for a number of computers and accessories quickly. One of the newest computer additions is the iBike series which is available in a single or combo mount. Because the computer uses an air pressure sensor to help calculate power, a rigid mount is very important for accurate results. For that reason, the Womo bracket is a perfect fit and allow for a light or computer beneath if you’re so inclined.Most single mounts are priced at $49.99 with dual mounts $59.99.

Unbeaten Buckeyes and Wolverines top newest AP poll

first_imgUnbeaten Buckeyes and Wolverines top newest AP poll Tyler RushmeyerOctober 18, 2006Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintAfter four weeks of conference play, two traditional powerhouses have begun to separate themselves from the rest of the Big Ten.Michigan is 7-0 after its 17-10 defeat of Penn State on Saturday, while Ohio State picked up its 14th-straight win dating back to last year, defeating Michigan State 38-7 on Saturday and improving to 7-0 this season.For their efforts, the Buckeyes remained in the No. 1 slot in an Associated Press poll while the Wolverines climbed to No. 2. This represents the first time Big Ten teams have occupied the top two spots in the poll since 1985, when Iowa was ranked No.1 and Michigan was No. 2.Michigan’s 7-0 start is its first 7-0 start since 1997. That season, the Wolverines finished 12-0 and took home the national title. For Ohio State, it last jumped out to a 7-0 mark in its 2002 national title season, when it finished 14-0.The pair’s perfect starts also represent the first time the Big Ten has boasted a tandem of 7-0 teams since 1998, when Wisconsin opened the season 9-0 and the Buckeyes began 8-0.Michigan and Ohio State will meet on Nov. 18 in Columbus, Ohio, for their regular season finale.Ohio State coach Jim Tressel has made sure his team does not look past its opponents or get caught up in the media hype during the buildup.“We talk about the present and deal with what’s at hand,” he said. “If anyone gets caught up in it, I would say, ‘Go watch more film’ rather than read press clippings.”Players of the weekThe Big Ten handed out Co-Offensive Players of the Week awards to Indiana quarterback Kellen Lewis and Purdue quarterback Curtis Painter.Painter put together a career-best performance on Saturday, leading the Boilermakers to a 31-10 victory over Northwestern.He finished the day with a career-high 35 completions on 49 attempts for 431 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for a touchdown score.Lewis’ efforts helped Indiana defeat No. 15 Iowa on Saturday, 31-28. It was the Hoosiers’ first win over a top-15 team since 1987. He finished the day 19-of-25 for a career-high 255 yards and three touchdowns, while also adding a rushing score.It is the first time Indiana has won back-to-back Big Ten games since 2001, and coach Terry Hoeppner credits much of that to his young quarterback.“He’s finally playing like he’s been practicing and that’s why he’s playing,” he said. “He’s cutting down on mistakes, throwing the ball well and really giving us a chance to win.”Senior defensive end LaMarr Woodley of Michigan took home the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award for his role in the Wolverines’ 17-10 victory over Penn State on Saturday.He collected a team-high five tackles, including three for loss, while also picking up a pair of sacks and a forced fumble on the afternoon.Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said he has been impressed with Woodley.“Our defense starts with Woodley,” he said. “He loves to win, loves to compete. I think our entire defense has fed off him.”Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. picked up the fourth Special Teams Player of the Week award of his career for his efforts in the Buckeyes’ victory over Michigan State on Saturday.His 60-yard punt return touchdown was the sixth of his career, breaking the Big Ten record of five held by Iowa’s Tim Dwight (1994-1997).Hill rollingP.J. Hill joined historic company on Saturday for his role in his team’s 48-12 dismantling of Minnesota.The Wisconsin running back became just the fourth freshman in NCAA history to reach 1,000 yards through his first seven games.He now leads the Big Ten in rushing with 1,011 yards and is second in the nation.last_img read more

Sterling Development Group, Luster Custom Homes Announce Merger

first_imgA new full-service development company, Cypress Development Group,  was announced today as the result of a merger between Scottsdale-based developer Sterling Collection Development Group (SCDG) and luxury home builder, Luster Custom Homes.Longtime friends Nathan Day, president of SCDG, and Tanner Luster, president of Luster Custom Homes, decided to combine their companies and increase their staff in order to form Cypress Development Group that will specialize in high-end residential and commercial projects that combine progressive sustainable features with impeccable finishes. The pair’s expertise lies in pioneering the most advanced construction techniques in order to bring new ideas, methods and best practices to the development industry with an uncompromising attention to detail. From concept to completion, Cypress will offer comprehensive development services including site selection and acquisition, development funding, strategic planning, project design, construction, green-building expertise and interior design. “This is an exciting step and major growth opportunity for all of us,” said Nathan Day. “By partnering with Luster Custom Homes and creating a full-service development company, it allows us to critically think outside the box and streamline the development process. We can now manage the entire build process from concept to completion and do things quickly, efficiently and consistently.  We have the ability to explore innovative building process and test the efficiency, especially in the green building arena, and have full quality control under one roof.”Cypress opened the doors to its new 4,000 square-foot office last week at Canyon Village in Scottsdale’s DC Ranch community. The new company also recently hired six employees, adding to the existing team of 12.“We have worked with Sterling for several years now and have enormous respect for their reputation and team. Our greatest asset has always been our people and by coming together we have made a substantial increase in the quality of that asset,” said Tanner Luster. “There are great synergies between our teams, our services and our clients. Our two companies have a shared vision for innovation and success that will only be enhanced by coming together. It is a true reflection of our business philosophy, which is all about building smart, innovative products that provide real value for consumers and real estate professionals.”Day and Luster began working together in 2011 on the first phase of Day’s development, Sterling at Silverleaf, in which Luster is the builder. Sterling is a luxury, custom-home community that sits on 12-acres within the gates of Silverleaf featuring a collection of 16 villas designed by world-renowned architect Bing Hu. The community made national headlines in 2012 when it was named Arizona’s first and only single-family new construction project to be awarded gold-level certification by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), making the villas the greenest homes in Arizona. Just this month, the US Green Building Council also awarded the project GOLD level LEED certification Cypress Development Group’s first project will be phase two of Sterling, an additional 12 villas priced from $2.2M, that will break ground later this month.last_img read more

Eating something sweet can lead to a romantic date

first_imgThe Washington Post:Ate something bitter? It can make you judgmental. Feeling love is all around? It can make even water taste sweeter. Not only do our emotions influence our perceptions of taste, but what we taste can also change how we feel, scientists have found.“The tongue could be a window to the psyche,” says Nancy Dess, a professor of psychology at Occidental College in Los Angeles, pointing to the growing number of studies that connect taste perception with emotions and even personality types.…In that study, close to 1,000 Americans were given standard personality and taste-preference questionnaires. People who enjoyed foods with bitter notes — such as grapefruit, tonic water, coffee and radishes — were more likely to admit that they enjoyed tormenting people or that they tend to manipulate others to get their way. “And these effects are not tiny, either,” says Austrian psychologist Christina Sagioglou, the study’s lead author.…“The findings suggest that judgments involving morality, e.g. jury deliberations, opinions on sociopolitical issues, could potentially reflect and be swayed by what individuals eat and drink,” said one of the study’s authors, Natalie Kacinik, a professor of psychology at the City University of New York, in an email.Read the whole story: The Washington Post More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more
