Stars’ backup stymies Ducks

first_img“It was a big game for us and a big two points,” Smith said. “That’s a great team over there. They have a lot of firepower.” Smith, who got the start in place of No. 1 goalie Marty Turco, made sliding saves on prime scoring chances by Travis Moen and Todd Marchant in the first five minutes of the third period to preserve the shutout. Turco had taken the loss in Dallas’ past three meetings with the Ducks this season. The Ducks held a 13-3 edge in those three games. Smith, who recently received a two-year contract extension, made his first start since Dec. 14 against the New York Rangers as Stars coach Dave Tippett wanted to throw a change at the Ducks. “I thought about it yesterday afternoon and I thought, `You know what, let’s go in this direction,”‘ Tippett said. “Turco’s luck hasn’t been good against Anaheim so we decided to switch it up today.” The Stars, 7-2-1 in their past 10 games, now have 68 points – six behind the first-place Ducks in the Pacific Division. “This was a big win for us,” Stars defenseman Philippe Boucher said. “They’ve been on top all year long. Hopefully, if we play well, we’ll get a chance to catch them at the end.” DALLAS – Mike Smith is making the most of his surprise starts. The rookie goalie stopped 32 shots for his third shutout in seven starts, and Jussi Jokinen scored a power-play goal early in the third period to lift the Dallas Stars to a 1-0 victory over the Ducks on Saturday. center_img Jokinen used the skills that make him so dangerous in the shootout tiebreaker to break up the scoreless game. Jokinen, who has registered only two goals in his past 20 games, is a career 15 of 21 in shootouts. With Moen in the penalty box for interference, Dallas’ Sergei Zubov connected with Jokinen on a long lead pass. Jokinen skated past two defenders and beat Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere with a nifty move on the forehand at 4:13 for his 11th goal. “I tried keeping it similar to the shootout,” Jokinen said. “(Zubov) is one of the best passers in the league and he sprung me with a great pass.” Dallas stopped all six Ducks power plays. The Ducks are 0 of 16 with the man advantage in the past four games. “We have not executed to the level we’re capable of, specifically on the power play,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “We need to get more desperate.” Giguere made 20 saves for the slumping Ducks, 3-6-1 in their past 10 games. They held a 20-minute postgame meeting. “Every game is going to be like a playoff game from here on out,” Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger said. “Every team we play is going to try to prove something or achieve something against us.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I always knew Lampard would be a pivotal player for Man City, reveals Pellegrini

first_imgManuel Pellegrini has insisted he always knew Frank Lampard would play an important role for Manchester City following the midfielder’s match-winning display against Leicester City.The ex-Chelsea star slipped home the only goal of the game in a 1-0 triumph at the King Power Stadium as he used his cunning to evade the clutches of the Foxes’ defenders six yards from goal.And although Lampard was only making his third start of the campaign, the Chilean revealed he felt the 36-year-old would be a key star for the Blues during his loan spell, which is due to end on January 1, 2015, and not just a bit-part player.Pellegrini said: “When I [asked] him to stay here because he has nothing to do in New York before January he accepted [the offer] and I proposed it to him because I was absolutely sure he would be an important player for us during the season.“One of the reasons why Frank [Lampard] played today is he can score, especially at the moment when our strikers are not at their best, because we have two of them injured and Edin Dzeko couldn’t play, and I’m very happy for him and the team he scored again.”last_img read more

Scam time in Valley

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The Cornwells took the check to their local Washington Mutual branch and asked the teller to determine whether it was legitimate. After inspecting the check and calling Bank of the West, which issued it, a bank official told them it was a forgery. The scam artists are using forged check from a La Palma company called Multi Sales Inc., a wholesale distributor of garage door and gate operators. The checks appear real, with signatures of two Multi Sales employees, although the street addresses are incomplete. Officials from Multi Sales said eight forged checks have been deposited or turned in to area banks by victims, all of whom live in the Valley. “The signatures are forged,” said Laurie, the company’s controller, who asked that her last name not be used so the culprits have as little information about the company as possible. “I would guess that somebody found a check, or maybe a check was lost. “It’s caused us a major problem. We can’t do banking the way we normally do. They’ve put a caution on our account.” The ploy is similar to so-called phishing scams that have become common on the Internet in recent years, including e-mails from Nigeria that inundate junk-mail folders and draw in unsuspecting victims. A report released this week by America Online and the National Cyber Security Alliance said one in four Internet users receives such e-mails each month, and 70 percent of those who receive them believe they’re real. “This is a new variation,” said Ken McGuire, a supervisory special agent with the FBI who investigates such scams. “What they’re trying to do is nickel-and-dime people in a way that hides their identity and provides them with this flow of ill-gotten gain.” The FBI’s Los Angeles office receives about 40 complaints a week about such scams, 20 directly to their office and 20 referred by other agencies, McGuire said. But officials said they believe that’s just the tip of the iceberg – many victims are too embarrassed to go to the authorities when they’ve been had. And it’s difficult to track down and prosecute those responsible. “If it’s more than just a couple of times, if there’s a number of people that have been duped, there’s a strong likelihood we can prosecute the person,” McGuire said. “But in many fraud cases, the money is long since spent by the time law enforcement figures out who did it.” The Canadian lottery scam is prevalent enough that the FBI and the Canadian government have task forces targeting it. A Los Angeles-based FBI agent has been deployed to Vancouver to investigate such claims, Assistant U.S. Attorney Ellyn Lindsay said. The penalty for a mail or wire fraud conviction could be between 10 years and 15 years in prison, Lindsay said. “It may be kind of the scam du jour, but things like this have been done in the past, too,” she said. “Especially for seniors, it’s devastating emotionally. People have been wiped out, elderly people have had to go back to work, and it takes a toll emotionally and even physically.” Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 713-3669 josh.kleinbaum@dailynews.com If you think you’ve been the victim of a scam, contact the FBI at (310) 477-6565 or www.fbi.gov; or the Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Cloughaneely Band to gets in tune thanks to major funding boost

first_imgThe Cloughaneely Senior Band are in tune this evening after it was confirmed that they have been allocated more than €11,000 in funding.Donegal TD and Gaeltacht Minister Joe McHugh announced that he has sanctioned the grant from his Department to purchase musical equipment.Buíon Cheoil Sinsear Chloich Cheann Fhaola (Senior Band) was formed in August 2016 after a call for a spontaneous band reunion to welcome home the junior band on their All–Ireland win at Fleadh Ceoil Na hÉirean, that year. There was a large turnout of past members of the junior band and a decision was taken to form a senior band. One year on and the senior band also took part in the 2017 Fleadh and now has 36 members.Minister McHugh said: “I’m delighted to help this Senior Marching Band who are promoting our language, music, and our Gaeilge tradition in Cloughaneely.“All members of the newly formed senior band were previously members of the U-18 junior marching Banna Cheoil Chloich Cheann Fhaola, with years of membership stretching from 1983 until 2014. During that time, collectively they have been All-Ireland Champions at Fleadh Ceoil na hÉireann ten times.“The formation of the senior band has been a hugely positive move for all those involved and in promoting our language and heritage. “I have sanctioned €11,111 for the band to purchase musical equipment and I want to wish all those involved continued success in the future.”This is being sanctioned under the 20 Year Strategy 2010-2030.Cloughaneely Band to gets in tune thanks to major funding boost was last modified: November 9th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CloughaneelyCloughaneely marchinG BandMinister Joe McHughlast_img read more

Paddle your way to a T5 geocache

Geo-cycling through 16 countries in 5 months.November 13, 2017In “Community”And the February 2015 Geocacher of the Month Is…March 25, 2015In “Community” There was a lake not too far from home with both an EarthCache and a Traditional cache that each required paddling. Before long, I was on the water in my new kayak. It was so much fun. As I zipped around the lake gathering EarthCache information, I wondered why it had taken me so long to discover the joys of kayaking. I then set sail for the island with the Traditional cache and was just 500 feet from it when I heard a hissing sound. Part of me hoped a snake had hitched a ride on my vessel because the alternative was a leak in my brand new kayak. Alas, it was a leak.Grabbing a remote geocache in a kayakIt wasn’t the smartest decision I ever made, but I continued on course for the island. (C’mon, I was only 500 feet away!) I made it safely, found the cache, applied a crude patch to the tiny hole in the inflatable, and returned to the dock. All’s well that ends well. Despite the minor issues with my maiden voyage, I was hooked on paddle caching and bought a hardshell kayak a few weeks later. I’ve since found a few hundred caches on water.I’d like to share a few things I learned about paddling as it relates to geocaching. Perhaps my experiences will help you if you’re intrigued by water caching.This cache is soooo easy (with a kayak)1. Inflatable or hardshell?The internet is full of articles detailing the pros and cons. For me, it boils down to inflatables being far cheaper and more portable (when deflated, an inflatable kayak easily fits in your car), whereas hardshells are easier to maneuver and significantly more sturdy. I often suggest people start with an inflatable, see how they like paddling, and then perhaps upgrade to a hardshell.I’m mostly skipping past the question of whether to consider a motorized or non-motorized watercraft. For geocaching purposes, non-motorized is usually the way to go. With a kayak or something similar, it’s easier to navigate into tight places. Plus, you can portage through shallow water.Equipment: you need more than just a kayak and a paddle2. Other equipmentThere’s a lot more to it than just a kayak and a paddle. If you buy a hardshell, you’ll need to carry it on your vehicle. I’ve got two kayak cradles attached to a roof rack. The kayak rests in the cradles. I then secure it with two load straps, two locking cargo straps, as well as tie-down ropes on the bow and stern. (Of course, the required equipment will vary depending on your vehicle.) If you’re traveling a long distance, stop every so often to check the ropes and straps. Also, when you return home and pull into your garage, don’t forget there’s a kayak on top of the vehicle. I forgot once.You’ll need a personal flotation device (PFD). I hope that’s obvious. Bonus points if you can attach a writing device to your PFD. You’ll want a dry sack to carry your stuff. You may decide you need gloves. I like to wear gloves because my hands fatigue more quickly without them. I repurposed some old biking gloves, but there are fancier options. Lastly, I wear water shoes, which come in handy if I need to step out of the kayak or portage through a shallow area.Have fun but stay safe3. SafetyAgain, the internet is full of water safety tips. I can’t cover everything here, but please do your research. The biggest no-brainer is to wear a PFD. Besides the usual safety tips, there are additional factors to consider when geocaching on water. Target a lake for your first water cache. Don’t get me wrong, caching on a river can be a blast. But lakes are generally much calmer. You can take your time getting familiar with paddling and with finding/retrieving caches. Later, you can consider rivers and streams. But let’s save the ocean for a different blog.Make sure your GPS or phone is attached to something. You know how you freak out when you drop your device on the ground? You’re gonna freak out a lot harder when you drop it in a lake. Skip the freaking with an attachment. Don’t be a hero. I’ve come across caches that were very difficult to reach from my kayak. It could be the CO was taller than me, or they placed the cache while in a taller vessel, or the water level was higher at the time of placement. I’ve overreached and fallen out of the kayak. I’ve capsized on a river when I misjudged how fast I was approaching debris. Don’t be foolish like me. Know your limits and cache accordingly.Night caching is fun on land, but it’s dangerous on water. I’ve never set out to paddle cache in the dark, but I’ve misjudged time and found myself too far from shore when the sun set. That was dumb (and scary).Paddle cache with a buddy, or at least tell someone where you’re going and check in regularly. I’ve done it both ways and it’s just so much safer to have someone with you. You better believe I would’ve liked to have had a friend along on those times when I capsized!How does a geocacher find “water caches”?4. Where to find water caches?They don’t have their own cache type, so searching for water caches is an inexact science. I usually start with filtering for T5 caches, map the results, and look for what’s on water. Occasionally, a water cache is rated T4 or T 4.5, but that’s not common. You can also run a Pocket query for caches with the “Boat required” attribute. Once you’ve decided on a cache to find, it’s a good idea to locate an ideal boat launch. My favorite COs include this as an additional waypoint on the cache page. Otherwise, check to see if previous finders mention a boat launch in their logs. Many waterways are managed by a government entity, so you may find they have a website with boating information.If you have any favorite water caches, I’d love to hear about them in the comments section!Where will you find your next geocache?Share with your Friends:More After attending the MOGA 2014 Mega-Event in Ohio, my wife and I were driving through Kentucky on our way home. I opened the Geocaching® app to search for caches along our route when I caught sight of a ton of T5 caches. I mean a boatload of them (pun intended because they were the kind that required a boat to find). They were on creeks, rivers, and lakes. So many of them! I’d never seen anything like it. Alas, I had no boat. No kayak. No canoe. No watercraft of any kind.I pondered the boat idea upon returning home. Impulsive as I may be when it comes to geocaching, I know enough not to immediately drop hundreds or thousands of dollars on a watercraft. So, I dipped my toe into water caching by tagging along on a lake outing with a friend who owns an extra hardshell kayak. I loved it. Still, I wasn’t quite ready to make a huge investment. Instead, I purchased an inflatable kayak for around $75.Rock Chalk (Chris) and fellow Geocaching HQ staffer LukeK geocaching with kayakslast_img read more
