USC heads to Michigan for ITA Kick-off Weekend

first_imgThink of it as an NCAA championship preview.The USC women’s tennis team is in Ann Arbor, Mich., to kick-off the opening rounds of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Team Indoors Championships.“Indoor [tennis] is a whole different animal,” said USC head coach Richard Gallien. “It’s a bit like baseball at Coors Field, the ball doesn’t spin as much and it just flies.”For the Women of Troy, the tournament will be a whole different animal this year.The top-ranked teams, usually including USC, host the opening rounds.This year, however, the Women of Troy find themselves ranked 18th, and are forced to travel to earn their spot in the final 16.“It’s a new experience for us,” Gallien said. “But it’s a big chance for us to put on a little grizzle and toughness.”Joining USC in Ann Arbor is No. 46 North Carolina State, with first serve scheduled for 7 a.m. PT on Saturday.“That’s just the deal,” Gallien said. “We’ve been getting up early this whole week to try and acclimate ourselves.”Assuming it wins, USC will face either No. 56 Auburn or No. 8 Michigan, who is hosting the four teams this weekend.Despite the competition, coach Gallien feels pretty confident in his team.“I’m a pretty conservative guy,” Gallien said. “But I feel confident about NC St.”The bigger challenge, he says, will come against Michigan.“We don’t get 1,000 fans at our matches here,” he said. “But there, indoors, they’ll have that. It’ll be hairy.”Nonetheless, Gallien remains confident in his squad.“I think we’ll win. We’re healthy and in good shape, and mentally in a good place. I feel pretty good about it”If the Women of Troy come away on top this weekend, they will advance to the official championships, to be held in three weeks at the University of Virginia.last_img read more

She passed to teammate Kali Hartshorn who beat the Orange for the 23rd time in team history.last_img read more

Teen’s Death Under Investigation After Apparent Suicide in BSO Jail

first_imgOfficials with the Broward Sheriff’s Office are investigating the apparent suicide last weekend of a teenager who was being held at the Main Jail.They say 17-year-old Sonny Rugani, of Coral Springs, had been cleared and released from a mental health hospital two and a half months ago.However, just before 4 a.m. last Sunday, a detention deputy who was doing a routine physical check of inmates, discovered that the teen had tried to hang himself. Deputies and the jail’s medical staff then provided medical assistance.Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue transported Rugani to a hospital, where he died Wednesday afternoon.Coral Springs police had arrested the teen on June 1 on grand theft and burglary charges, according to the sheriff’s office. As he was being arrested, he threatened to take his own life, and was then taken to University Hospital & Medical Center under the Baker Act, until he was released by medical staff on June 12. At that point, Rugani was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center for processing.The sheriff’s office says he stayed at the Broward Juvenile Detention Center until he was adjudicated as an adult, and was taken to the Main Jail on June 25. Although he had been cleared by medical professionals two weeks earlier, the jail’s medical staff decided to place Rugani on suicide watch as a precaution.After two days, he was transferred to general population housing. Officials say that during his two-month stay at the jail, Rugani did not show suicidal tendencies, and took part in daily educational and juvenile Life Skills programs.The investigation is ongoing.last_img read more

Jacking Up Buildings in Fairbanks

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Start Free Trial Already a member? Log incenter_img How do you build a residential foundation in Fairbanks, Alaska? The answer depends on site conditions — especially soil conditions and the presence or absence of permafrost. The answer may also depend on whether or not you think the climate is warming. Juggling all these factors is tricky, which is why some Fairbanks builders who followed best practices for foundation design ended up with buildings that are now leaning or sinking.From a construction viewpoint, Fairbanks has terrible soils. Some neighborhoods are underlain by permafrost that is hundreds of feet thick; in these areas, only the top few feet of soil ever thaw. Other sites formerly had stable permafrost — permafrost which is now melting. Still others never had permafrost — they just have unstable soils that are tricky to build on.Even builders who have sought the advice of engineers have learned the hard way that an expensive foundation won’t always keep you out of trouble.If you drive through certain Fairbanks neighborhoods, you’ll see lots of examples of buildings that appear to have sunk or settled unevenly. There is no single explanation for all of these foundation failures; each failure is unique. But taken together, these failures represent a cautionary tale for foundation designers.According to a 2017 news article by Emily Gertz on a web site called News Deeply, “Soils in Alaska’s second-largest city are marred by discontinuous permafrost. They’re unpredictable and dynamic and they shift and change, sometimes dramatically from season to season. … ‘There’s a lot of bad things happening with soils,’ said [structural engineer Tim] Henry. ‘I mean, compared to just four or five years ago, there’s a lot more [problems]. Seeing the properties that have been there for a long time and then move after 20 years, that’s real scary, because no one is… last_img read more
