No leader? No problem for U volleyball

Traditional roles don’t mean much to this year’s Gophers volleyball team. Senior Adrianna Nora was an All-America honorable mention last season, and sophomore Hannah Tapp is a preseason All-Big Ten pick, giving coach Hugh McCutcheon two obvious choices for leadership. The group, however, has chosen to build a system without hierarchy, hoping a sense of equality will spur it to a sixth consecutive NCAA Sweet 16 appearance. The new structure gets an early test. The Big Ten/ACC Challenge comes to the Sports Pavilion on Friday and Saturday, with Wisconsin and Louisville kicking off the tournament Friday evening. The Gophers play host to Notre Dame in Friday night’s 7 p.m. matchup. Saturday night’s finale with the Gophers and Louisville will be broadcast live on the Big Ten Network. “We are such a well-rounded team that we don’t really have what we consider a leader,” Nora said. “It’s more of a core group because Daly Santana is stepping up, Katie Schau is stepping up. Everyone is taking leadership roles and everyone is kind of depending on everyone [else]. … The home-court advantage for the first few games will be a good kick-start and kind of boost our confidence up a little bit.&#...

3 Easy (And Cheap!) Ways to Improve Your Dental Health

If you’re anything like me, you probably feel like you could do more to improve your dental health. Sure, I go to the dentist twice annually for hygiene treatments, and I brush and floss fairly religiously. But oral health is important to prioritize, especially for those of us who want to keep our teeth forever! Thankfully, there are some simple steps you can take to help keep your mouth cleaner and, by extension, the rest of your body as well. Here are three easy additions to an oral health regimen that we can all make time for. Oil Pulling There are a number of benefits associated with this ancient Ayurvedic practice, including whitening teeth, strengthening the gums and jaw, improving bad breath, lessening tooth sensitivity, preventing cavities and gingivitis, helping acne/eczema/psoriasis and other skin care issues, lessening the symptoms of migraines and hangovers, and even clearing out your sinuses! If you don’t yet know about oil pulling, there’s a ton of information about it online. But basically it consists of swishing a tablespoon of organic oil in your mouth for about 15-20 minutes first thing in the morning, before eating or drinking. Then you spit it out and rinse your mouth with water. It’s also recommended to drink a couple of glasses of water afterward, which seems like a good practice no matter what. Cold-pressed sesame or sunflower seem to be the favorite oils to use, but one thing to be aware of is that you can’t just try...

Always Shopping for New Ideas Helps Feed the Future

It’s late morning on a hot, sunny Tuesday and Steve Bernier is sweating. The owner of Cronig’s Market is pulling bull briar and poison ivy off a giant eight-foot-high deer fence that surrounds most of Thimble Farm, 40.8 acres nestled in the Iron Hill section of Oak Bluffs. He has been working steadily for about an hour and a half, but his day did not start here. Earlier in the morning he swept the parking lot of up-Island Cronig’s and stopped by the post office to pick up the market’s mail. Before heading to the office, Mr. Bernier works to clear brush at Thimble Farm. — Eli Dagostino Steve stands up, adjusts his yellow polo shirt, which is caught between a branch and his belt, and takes a few sips of water. “Whew, it’s hot.” He slides his glasses up the bridge of his nose and looks around to take in his work. For the past six months, he has tried to spend three hours three mornings a week working at the farm, helping to clear the fence. “Sometimes I need to be at the market, but my aim has been to be here, to help out three days a week. I love it here, ” he says. “It’s quiet. No one bothers me. It’s a simple task that needed to be done and it gives me time to think.” He goes back to cutting invasive weeds out of the fence. A thorn catches his hand. He swears and looks around. “If only I hadn’t lost my other glove.” For his fence work, Steve uses large red l...  

USC Football In The News And It's All Bad

Two of the day’s biggest sports stories both involve the University of Southern California football team. Both are bad. On the one hand, speculation swirls around cornerback Josh Shaw who admits fabricating a story of leaping from a balcony to save his 7-year old nephew. Shaw suffered two high ankle sprains. He was suspended indefinitely for the lie. But his suffering may not be over. Now the story is that a woman’s screams were heard in that same apartment complex and reportedly a witness saw someone “matching Shaw’s description” leap from a balcony. The complex is where Shaw’s girlfriend lives, and her apartment window was pried open according to the LA Times understanding of the police incident report. That seems to be a strange set of coincidences. The second story is less sensational but more directly worrisome to the program. USC senior running back Anthony Brown quit the team because he discerned that the head coach was a racist. In his words on Instagram, “Sark treated me like a slave in his office…can’t play for a racist MAN!!!! #Fighton.” It could be true that balcony jumping is a new extreme sport. It could be that coach Steve Sarkisian has a darker view of darker people, thought the allegations come from someone who was disgruntled with languishing as six on the running back depth chart after converting from cornerback and recovering from a hyperextended elbow. But if one circumstance is...

FOREX-Yen firms on Ukraine tensions, euro braces for inflation test

* Safe-haven yen outperforms dollar and euro * Euro wilts as tensions between Ukraine & Russia flare up* Euro zone inflation a further risk after German CPI stays lowBy Ian ChuaSYDNEY, Aug 29 (Reuters) - The safe-haven yen held firm early on Friday, while the euro was on track to post its second straight month of declines as tensions between Ukraine and Russia flared up again.Ukraine's president said Russian troops had entered his country in support of pro-Moscow rebels who captured a key coastal town, sharply escalating a five-month-old separatist war.The news short circuited a corrective bounce in the euro, sending the currency hurtling back towards a near one-year low of $1.3152. It was last at $1.3182, at least 40 pips below Thursday's intraday high.The common currency is down 1.6 percent so far in August, following last month's 2.2 percent drop.Against the Swiss franc, the euro skidded as far as 1.2049 , moving ever close to the 1.20 barrier that the Swiss National Bank has vowed to protect. It last traded at 1.2063.Not helping the euro, data on Thursday showed Germany's annual inflation steadied at a very low level while Spanish consumer prices fell, suggesting there is a risk that the euro zone rate will come in lower than the 0.3 percent forecast.Euro zone inflation is due later on Friday."Inflation is likely to set a new cyclical low of 0.2 percent, putting pressure on the ECB to take action. We now expect the ECB to cut both the refi and depo rates by 10 basis p...
