Freshman impact player from start

Freshman Connor Lunduski has made his prescence known, leading the Lakers in shots on goal with seven. (Emily Wright | The Oswegonian) A highly sought after recruit out of high school, Connor Lunduski, chose Oswego State’s men’s soccer program over Division I for academic opportunities, truly embodying what it means to be a student athlete. Connor Lunduski was three years old when he fell in love with the most popular sport in the world: soccer. Always inspired to be like his older brother Jacob, he tried to follow in his footsteps. He wanted to be a great soccer player just like his older brother. They never got to play together in high school, and that’s one thin Connor Lunduski wishes he could have experienced. By tenth grade, he was on the varsity team. Eleventh grade was where he really made a name for himself, scoring nine goals in his nine games played. His performance started to create a buzz around Section III soccer. In the midst of his senior season, Connor Lunduski made the goal of doing something special, and that he did. He had a solid statistical campaign, scoring 14 goals and adding 11 assists. He went into the playoffs with a goal in mind, winning a sectional title, his dreams since a child. In the sectional semi-finals, he scored the game-winning goal to put Baldwinsville in the sectional championship. At the end of the season, he accomplished his goals and more, leading Baldwinsville to the state quarterfinals wh...

Honeywell Uses Big Data to Help Boost Oil and Gas Production Performance

Honeywell Process Solutions has released its Digital Suites for Oil and Gas, a set of software and services that can help oil and gas producers boost production performance by 3 to 5 percent while improving operational safety. Validated through customer testing, the new solution allows oil and gas producers to turn data into digital intelligence that helps operators make critical decisions faster by capturing, managing and analyzing the right production information at the right time.

Souhan: Hired to be a front man, NFL's Goodell chooses to hide

A women’s rights group named UltraViolet plans to fly protest banners reading #GoodellMustGo over NFL stadiums this weekend. That’s not going to work. The only way these days to reach Goodell, the NFL’s absentee commissioner, is to strap a message to the ankle of a coward-seeking mole. “Waiting For Goodell’’ is the saddest play Beckett could have written. Wednesday, the Vikings announced they were placing Adrian Peterson on the commissioner’s exempt list at 12:47 a.m. The timing puzzled many. It shouldn’t have. The Wilfs reached their decision in conjunction with Goodell, and these days Goodell emerges from hiding only at 12:45 a.m., and only for five minutes — just long enough to restock his supply of merlot-infused brie and imported water crackers. Goodell runs the richest sports league in North American history. He makes $44 million a year. Knowing that his league employs a certain number of violent young men, he invested a chunk of his earnings in Manhattan’s plushest panic room, just in case, oh, one of the greatest runni...

Why football is humanity's saviour

Talisman ... Lance Franklin of the Swans. Photo: Getty Images "How's he feeling?" I say to my local shopkeeper, Stavros of his cousin, Little John. "He's on cloud nine. He's cocky," says Stav. "Cocky?" "You know him. He's wearing his jumper. He's going out to the game." Advertisement And so the conversation goes at this time of the year. Little John, of course, has not been hospitalised or taken ill. I am asking after his well-being because his team is playing finals football and I know with a certainty approaching gospel he's as preoccupied with the details of the weekend's matches as I. We are two grown men, excited about a group of strangers half our age, who wear silly bright colours and play for football teams ennobled with the faces of growling animals.  The fate of these teams on the field will dictate a large part of our mood, self-esteem, conversation and drinking habits for the next fortnight. We are not alone. In your office right now there are others like us, who are re-checking the kick-off or first bounce of games, calculating travel times, organising friends and, perhaps, the lies or excuses they will tell partners or spouses to ensure their attendance at a venue - be it stadium, pub or loungeroom. They will read the sports pages and websites reconfirming player availability, mutter darkly about pundits predicting their team's loss and feel a disembodied joy and kinship with former players and experts who see greatness and success in their club's future. ...  

FOREX-Sterling firms as early results go against Scottish independence

* Sterling rises on signs of Unionist victory * Strong U.S. jobless claims boosts U.S. yields and dollar* Yen hits 6-year low vs dollar, sterlingBy Hideyuki SanoTOKYO, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Sterling rose to a two-week high against the U.S. dollar and two-year peak against the euro on Friday, taking comfort from early results of a Scottish referendum that indicated a break-up of the United Kingdom will be averted.The results from several small boroughs showed a solid lead for the "No" camp to independence. Earlier, a YouGov survey showed support for Scottish independence amounted to 46 percent of the electorate with 54 percent wanting to stay in the United Kingdom."The YouGov survey seems to have a fairly big sample size so I suspect it will be not that off the official result," said a trader at a Japanese bank.The pound jumped almost 0.8 percent to $1.6525, its highest since Sept. 2, and last stood at $1.6508, extending its bounce from a 10-month low of $1.6052 hit on Sept. 10.Against the euro, it hit a two-year high of 78.12 pence per euro and climbed to a six-year high of 180.66 yen .The U.S. dollar stood tall against the yen, after scaling a six-year high on Thursday as a drop in U.S. jobless claims reinforced the market's view of the diverging trajectory of interest rates between the United States and Japan.The dollar jumped to as high as 109.46 yen before stepping back a tad to 109.18 yen, still up 0.5 percent on the day. The yen also faltered as more weak economic data re...  

Astorino Speaks at Sagamore Hotel to Gain Support from the Business Community

By: Nick Reisman 9:58 PM Text size: + - Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino has a message for the state's business leaders: It's time to wake up. In a speech to the statewide Business Council Thursday evening, Astorino urged the business community to drop their support for Governor Andrew Cuomo. "I just want them to understand there is viable alternative, that they don't have to keep listening from the nonsense that's being spewed from the governor without any facts to back it up," said Astorino. That may be easier said than done. Cuomo remains broadly popular according to public opinion polls and has out-fundraised Astorino. But the Republican Westchester County executive says business leaders need to stop going along to get along. His appeal was not a rousing stump speech, but what he called tough love. "My message to them is you better get involved, because if you sit back and just take what state government gives you, then you deserve it," said Astorino. Astorino wouldn't say if he wants the business lobby's endorsement. And while Cuomo has courted business leaders during his term, Astorino says his record in Westchester County is far more successful. "I'm proud of what we've done in Westchester. They're understanding of what we've done in Westchester with cutting taxes and creating jobs in Westchester County, living within our means, reducing the budget, these are things Andrew Cuom...  

Asian Games swimming competition promises drama

INCHEON, South Korea -- What promises to be a dramatic showdown between China's Olympic gold champion Sun Yang and his chief rival, Park Tae-hwan of South Korea, is set to heat up the Asian Games swimming program.It's the biggest rivalry in Asian swimming, possibly one of the biggest of the games, and some taunting from Sun has likely intensified the competition.The 22-year-old Sun brings the 200-, 400-, and 1,500-meter freestyle world titles he won last year to Incheon, along with the two golds, one silver and one bronze won at the 2012 London Olympics, where he became the first Chinese man to win an individual Olympic swimming gold. Sun also holds the world record in the 1,500 and won the event at the Asian Games four years ago in Guangzhou, China, where Park won gold in the 100, 200 and 400 freestyle finals. Park also swept the golds in the three events at the 1996 Asiad in Doha, Qatar. To top it off, he'll be swimming in a pool named in his honor at Incheon, west of the capital Seoul.But Sun thinks he holds the advantage, having fully harnessed the explosive power of his formidable 6-foot-6 frame.Having told Chinese media he doesn't really consider Park a serious rival, Sun filmed a series of humorous TV commercials for a Chinese sportswear maker in which he gently mocks the South Korean's celebrity status."Mr. Park, you're the Korean people's hero. You have countless fans. Even this swimming competition's aquatic center bears your name," Sun says ...
