first_img“They are a hard working team and definitely had their moments to keep the game within reach. Fortunately for us our special teams were clutch and out goaltender was sharp or it would have been a lot closer.”The Saints have a 4-0-0 record against the Vikes this season, but every contest has been hard fought and intense. Back in late-November, the Saints came from behind to win in a shootout 5-4.The following afternoon they needed late game heroics to tie the game in the final minute before Lucas Hildebrand scored the winner in overtime, completing back-to-back come from behind wins.“We understand as a group that this series will be tight and whichever team makes the greater sacrifices will hopefully advance to the finals.”Advanced tickets will be available at Mallard’s in Castlegar.

Early in their last meeting on February 21 at the Ian Stewart Complex in Victoria, the Saints exploded for four goals in the first four minutes on their first four shots of the game and went on to clinch home ice in the first round of the BCIHL Playoffs.STORY LINE: The Saints look to capture their third title in as many years, a rare feat for any franchise. Battling through many injuries and inconsistent play early on this season, the Saints have won six of their last eight games and are the hottest team heading into the playoffs. Rookie Vikes forwards Carsen Willans and Linden Horswill return to the Kootenays for their first BCIHL playoff action. Both are Nelson residents who used to play for their hometown Leafs in the KIJHL. SAINTS KEY PLAYERS: Logan Proulx (28 points), Ryan Edwards (33 points), and Darnell Dyck (36 points) all sit in the top ten in league scoring. The line has proven to be a threat to score every shift and is the nucleus to the recent explosive Saints offense that we are all used to. The Saints also have six healthy veteran defensemen who were all part of the 2014 championship team. Goaltender James Prigione led the BCIHL in Goals Against Average (2.33).VIKES KEY PLAYERS: Adam Klein led the team in goals (17) and points (30). Other key veteran forwards include former BCIHL all-star Shawn Mueller (26 points) and Evan Warner (26 points). There is no question that the Vikes are a talented, hard-working, offensive team but allowed 106 goals in the regular season to finish second to last in this category. Dylan Hykawy led the BCIHL in goals by a defenseman with 10 and is a big threat to score from the point. The Selkirk College Saints begin their quest for a third straight British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) championship this weekend as they take on University of Victoria Vikes in a best-of-three series beginning Friday.Faceoff for Game One is scheduled for 8 p.m. at the Castlegar Recreation Center.The Saints clinched home ice in the first round by defeating University of Victoria by scores of 7-1 and 6-2 two weeks ago on Vancouver Island.However, those games appeared closer than the final outcome.“Those victories over the Vikes this month were not easy,” says Saints Head Coach Alex Evin.last_img read more

Watch Out CNN: New Twitter Search Capabilities Will Rule Breaking News

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#twitter jon mitchell Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts Twitter Tuesday announced new search capabilities that give it the upper hand as a breaking news destination over basically every other news organization on the planet, from newspapers to cable networks to websites and everything in between. When a new search begins to trend on Twitter, Twitter’s new API will send the query to Amazon’s Mechanical Turk service, where humans will categorize it to help make it more relevant to readers. Then Twitter can populate its Discover section with live, topical streams of news.If they want to keep up, other organizations that exist to break news need some new ideas, and fast.This development fills the one gap that Twitter can’t cover with algorithms alone: context. Twitter already knows what terms and searches are popular, but it doesn’t know what they mean. Why is “Big Bird” trending? Is there a good episode of Sesame Street airing right now? Did someone who created the show die? Or was the giant puppet used as an absurd example in a political debate? The answer to those questions determines where information about “Big Bird” should go, whether it’s “television,” “politics,” or, I don’t know, “death.”Twitter Is The NewsThis contextual step is critical for making a news destination relevant. And if Twitter itself can master relevance, what’s the point of other news sites? They’re slower, and they have less information about what’s happening and what’s interesting to people. News organizations had better start thinking about how they can continue to matter in a world where Twitter is the destination, not just a pipe for sending links.As of right now, it still takes a lot of manual labor to get meaningful news out of Twitter. Journalists like me spend a lot of time sifting through Twitter and stringing the news together into a story that makes sense. That’s why you go to a “news” site to read the news.But Twitter is increasingly where breaking news emerges. That’s just a fact. The instant something happens in the world, if there’s a computer with an Internet connection nearby, someone is posting it on Twitter, and then the news industry reacts.So if Twitter can now assemble the raw materials of breaking news into a meaningful place to see and understand what’s happening anywhere in the world, on just about any topic, the instant it starts to matter to people, why would anyone get breaking news from another source?How News Sites Can Stay RelevantI already find my news exclusively on Twitter, but I’m an edge case as a journalist. I click links all the time, sure, but I don’t care what site the links go to. I care only that they seem relevant to what I see happening on Twitter. These new Mechanical Turk-driven search topics will make relevance much easier to determine for the legions of people who don’t mow their Twitter lawns as obsessively as I do.What can news organizations do other than write for what’s trending on Twitter and hope for clicks?Well, I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to write only about ideas that rise from connections that are hard for computers to make. The story has to get its meaning from the complexities and eccentricities of people. If there’s nothing more to the story than the news itself, people are going to get it from Twitter.Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock.last_img read more

Two new eel species discovered

first_imgTwo new species of marine eel were discovered and documented in August this year by Estuarine Biology Regional Centre (EBRC) of the Zoological Survey of India (ZSI) at Gopalpur-on-sea in Odisha. One of them is a short brown un-patterned moray eel now named ‘Gymnothorax andamanensesis’. Two specimens of this eel were caught at 2-metre deep waters in the south Andaman coast by J. Praveenraj of the Division of Fisheries Science, ICAR-Central Island Agricultural Research Institute, Port Blair, on March 18. It had been sent to ZSI Gopalpur for identification. Dr. Anil Mohapatra, Scientist at Gopalpur ZSI, and his associate Swarup Ranjan, after a detailed study, identified the specimens as a complete new species, which was acknowledged by scientific journals. Till now, 10 species of short brown unpatterned moray eels have been discovered in the world, out of which two were found in Indian waters. With this new discovery, the number of short brown un-patterned moray eels discovered from the Indian coast has increased to three.Similarly, a new white-spotted moray eel, now named ‘Gymnothorax smithi’ has also been identified by the Gopalpur ZSI’s scientists. Its first specimen was found from the 200-metres deep waters of the Arabian Sea in 2011. Recently, a few more specimens of this undiscovered species were collected from the southeastern Arabian Sea, off the Kerala coast. These specimens had also reached the Gopalpur ZSI for identification. Marine eels are mostly found in shallow waters but some of them live offshore in sandy or clayey bottoms ranging up to 500 metres. According Dr. Mohapatra, till now, 49 species of moray eel from 10 genera had been reported from Indian waters, and their species numbers have increased to 50 with the new addition.“Marine biodiversity is still considerably unexplored in India, which has a long coast line. Increased knowledge about it through exploration will be a great help in its conservation and proper utilisation,” said Dr. Mohapatra.last_img read more
