Green eager for Hamburg opportunities

Hamburg's USA forward Julian Green is hoping to get a greater slice of the action in the second half of the Bundesliga season The 19-year-old is a familiar figure since scoring a goal for the USA at the 2014 FIFA World Cup After the end of the season, he is due to return to Bayern - where he told bundesliga.com that he hopes to make the breakthrough eventually Cologne/Hamburg - The past few months have provided a considerable learning curve for Julian Green. After breaking into the FC Bayern München first-team squad last season, the Florida-born forward hit unexpected heights at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, netting a spectacular extra-time goal for the USA in their second round clash with Belgium. Green subsequently opted to spend the current campaign on loan at Bundesliga strugglers Hamburger SV and, while things haven’t quite gone to plan for the Red Shorts so far this term, the likeable 19-year-old remains intent on an improved showing in the Rückrunde before he heads back to Bavaria in the summer, as he explained to bundesliga.com in an exclusive interview… bundesliga.com: Julian Green, the last time we spoke was at Heathrow airport in London - I recognised you straight away… does that happen a lot now that you’re a World Cup goalscorer? Julian Green: [Laughs] Yeah most of the time! I’d just visited London with my girlfriend and was on my way back to Hamburg. bundesliga.com: After that you spent ten days in Dubai as part...  

Can India win the cricket World Cup again?

India's World Cup squad under Mahendra Singh Dhoni is younger and carries less baggage With the cricket World Cup set to begin in less than a month, sports writer Suresh Menon tackles the question: can India regain the World Cup? Every four years since 1983, the question has been asked in India with a mixture of hope and uncertainty. Put like that, the answer is always "yes" for, of course, any of half a dozen countries can win. India's success in 1983 democratised cricket in two ways - by introducing a policy of rotating venues and giving other teams the confidence to aspire for victory. The three tournaments following 1983 saw three different winners; India, as co-hosts were expected to win at least two of them, but Australia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka came through. Since their second win in 2011, India have played 95 one-day internationals (before the start of the tri-series in Australia), won more matches (57), and scored at a better rate (5.57) than any other team. Only Sri Lanka have played more games (112). Cricket is India's most popular sport The format - every team playing every other in two pools and then the top four from each qualifying for the quarterfinals - means that India can afford one or two bad results and still make the grade, unlike in 2007 when they were under pressure after losing to Bangladesh and failed to make the knockout. When the World Cup was first held in the subcontinent, India and Pakistan were placed in different groups in the fon...

Films shine spotlight on BJU cinema graduates

Birds chirp as the camera pans left to right behind a hooded young man barely swaying on a swing, but it is a larger silence their noise amplifies. Tension, pain and hopelessness come through in a frustrated, shoulder-high grip on the seat’s chains and slow, soft piano music bluer than the man’s jacket.That’s how “The Unspeakable,” a film by Greer resident and Bob Jones University graduate Marc Pagliuca, opens.It closes only after a transformation.For his work – completed in his senior year to help earn his degree in cinema and video production – Pagliuca tied for first place in the short film contest of the 2014-15 Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters Student Production Awards. It’s unavailable for public viewing until other national competitions shake out.The Hampton Park Christian School graduate is now a videographer at the Your Creative People web development, design and branding company in Greenville.Recent BJU grads Justin Kelley of Greenville and Stephen Pettit of Henrico, Virginia, won awards, too, Kelley second place in the documentary category for “Rupert,” Pettit third place in documentary for “Johnathan’s Very Own.”Their projects were judged on a variety of criteria including artistry, originality, production techniques and how they further a Judeo-Christian purpose or goal.“We believe our students do excellent film work, and it’s gratifying to see ...  

Loeb exhibit is larger than life

You have likely heard the saying, “go big or go home.” Defined in the Urban Dictionary as to “do whatever you are doing to its fullest,” the term has been somewhat overused in modern language.Since the 1940s, many artists have expressed the idea of going big through the size of their paintings. For those curious about the effect of standing before a large-scale painting, don’t miss “XL: Large-Scale Paintings from the Permanent Collection” at the Frances Lehman Loeb ArtCenter at Vassar College. Mary-Kay Lombino, curator, provided this statement about the exhibit: “By going big, artists radically extended the tenets of modernism. Their paintings, thanks to their monumental scale, had an emotional effect on their spectators.”The exhibit features 19 artworks from well-known artists, such as Milton Avery, Agnes Martin, Joan Mitchell and Mark Rothko, and in keeping with the grand size theme, all of the paintings had to be at least 5-feet wide in any direction. One of the largest paintings in the “XL” exhibition, as well as the art center’s collection, is “Deuxième nuit d’été,” a 16-foot-long abstract canvas by Jules Olitski.Most of the works in the exhibit are created using the traditional oil paints on canvas, but beginning in the ’60s and ’70s artists embraced the use of acrylic paints and polymer mediums, enabling them to create glazing and depth....

Random Acts of Kindness: Woman gave up cell phone to a man in need at airport

I was to pick up a passenger at Pittsburgh International Airport early on the afternoon of Jan. 9. Normally it’s a quick maneuver. My acquaintance is very punctual, but he was not visible at the passenger pickup curb as planned. Apprehensive that if I tried to wait, the airport police would tell me to keep moving — which they did (and rightly so) — I did several loops around the terminal. Still, he was nowhere in sight, and I had no cell phone. In a near panic, I boldly parked the car at the curb of the passenger arrival area and asked the first person I met if she might be a good Samaritan to a complete stranger and let me use her mobile phone. Without missing a beat, she jumped into selfless service. As we were dialing, I confessed that I was a dinosaur, a neo-Luddite, whatever, and have held out on getting a mobile phone. No sooner did my call go through than the ride she was waiting for drove up! I was literally saying goodbye as she was getting into the passenger seat. There was just time for a quick thank you and smile and she was on her way. The plane was late is all, thank God, and my passenger finally did show up, smiling, even though it was bitter cold. We drove away, mission accomplished, but not without me wishing I could have been able to do more to thank the kind-hearted woman who was truly a good Samaritan (if not a guardian angel). Thank you, wherever you are! REV. THOMAS HARTLatrobe Many offered help to couple on a cold day On a recent...
