Facebook Twitter Google+ Boston College’s Martin Clark missed a free throw with four seconds on the clock. The Eagles held just a one-point lead. Syracuse forward Sean Kerins grabbed the rebound and passed to Washington, who dribbled past a defender and threw up a half-court heave. A longshot. A prayer. He launched the ball toward the net, his body past the half-court line and himself into Syracuse lore with the game-winner.“It was a lot of fun playing in the Carrier Dome and certainly against players like Pearl Washington who are special,” said Gary Williams, who at the time of the shot was the head coach at Boston College. “The really good players have an impact on the game.”RELATED STORIES:Storify: Sports world mourns the death of Pearl WashingtonPearl Washington’s top five moments as a Syracuse basketball playerJim Boeheim pays an emotional tribute to Pearl Washington Published on April 22, 2016 at 4:26 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonati Related Stories Pearl Washington’s top 5 moments as a Syracuse basketball playerJim Boeheim pays emotional tribute to late Syracuse great Pearl WashingtonGallery: Pearl Washington throughout his Syracuse careerKenny Smith on Dwayne ‘Pearl’ Washington: ‘He made (New York City basketball) what it was’Storify: Sports world mourns the death of Syracuse basketball legend Dwayne ‘Pearl’ Washington Moments like that were what fans tuned in for. Boeheim likened Washington’s audience to Steph Curry’s in that people would stay up just to watch him. Washington helped get ESPN off the ground. The fledgling television network picked up college basketball games, specifically Big East games, which helped with the network’s rise in popularity.His NBA career was about as short as his college career. Neither lasted more than three seasons. And yet, he was one of the few busts that escaped the smudges on their shine. Washington was viewed as an innovator, with his ankle-breaking crossover that was passed down from NBA guard to NBA guard.“You couldn’t defend it. You couldn’t stop it. You couldn’t stop him,” Harried said. “He did what he wanted and when he wanted and he knew it. He was way ahead of his time.” Sam Blum | Senior Staff PhotographerAnd of course, there’s stories about Pearl Washington, the man. Boston Globe reporter Adam Himmelsbach shared on Twitter how Pearl once showed up to a local Syracuse park where Himmelsbach worked and cleaned toilets to make the park look better. There are various stories on Pearl’s Gofundme page from fans that are just happy to have met him in autograph lines and on basketball courts.Pearl is not defined by one shot, because Pearl Washington is an era of Syracuse basketball and college basketball. But that shot is forever on repeat, the ball perpetually hanging before it swishes through the hoop and the play starts all over again. On YouTube, in the Carrier Dome before basketball games.Watch the shot again. The focus doesn’t leave the celebration. The man who made the shot bolted through the tunnel prematurely before anyone could truly congratulate him. In his wake, he left a shocked Boston College team, screaming fans and a lasting legacy.The man, unlike the shot he took, is mortal. For the final stretch of Pearl’s battle with cancer, his fight has been predetermined. One last prayer that would land just a little bit right or left of the rim.But in the end, legends are remembered for the shots they do make, not the ones they don’t.“I think people know the legend,” Boeheim said, “There aren’t really many legends.” Comments Few things have ever publicly reduced Jim Boeheim to tears or the hunch in his back as he plodded all 13 steps out of the Hall of Fame wing of the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center and into the practice gym.Maybe he’s defended a player, like he did Gerry McNamara, or gotten testy at the podium, but nothing brought out the human side in Jim Boeheim like the death of Dwayne ‘Pearl’ Washington.“It’s been a really tough day,” Boeheim said on Wednesday, “I think we’ve all known this was coming, but it doesn’t make it any easier.”Washington, a Syracuse legend, died Wednesday after battling a malignant brain tumor since the summer of 2015. He had a previous brain tumor scare in 1996, but doctors removed it. From 1983-86, Washington was the lifeblood of the SU basketball program. A player that helped Boeheim mold Syracuse basketball into the program it is now and make the Carrier Dome a nationally recognized venue. A player who was Syracuse’s counter to Georgetown’s Patrick Ewing and St. John’s’ Chris Mullins.“I knew he was special the first time I met him just because of the aura he had around him,” said Herman Harried, a former teammate of Washington. “… He’s the Pearl.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor most players, there’s a moment when they go from Michael Jordan to M.J., from Kobe Bryant to the Black Mamba, from Dwayne Washington to Pearl.

PLANTATION, FLA. — A Broward County emergency room physician who is caring for coronavirus patients has reportedly temporarily lost the ability to care for her own child as her ex-husband has petitioned for custody until the threat of transmission is over. The judge ruled that because Dr. Theresa Greene is dealing with coronavirus patients at a South Florida hospital, she could pose a health risk to her child. Greene argued that she is capable of keeping her daughter safe and shouldn’t have to choose between her child and the oath she took as a physician.The divorced doctor is now making a passionate plea to be reunited with her child.The spread of COVID-19 has had heartbreaking consequences across South Florida, but for Dr. Greene, none is more painful than losing custody of her daughter.Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Bernard Shapiro temporarily granted full custody to the girl’s father until it’s believed the virus could be no longer a major threat.Greene, a physician at Westside Regional Medical Center in Plantation, said she divorced her husband two years ago.She tells WSVN in Miami that she wants her daughter to be able to say her mother did all she could in the fight against the virus.“I want her, when she grows up, to be proud of me for abiding by the oath I took when I went into medicine, but I also know that she needs me now,” she said.Greene argued she is capable of keeping her daughter safe.“I know what I’m doing. This isn’t the first communicable disease that I’ve encountered,” she said, “and yes, it is severe, and there’s danger, and we’re being very careful.”The couple had split time evenly with their daughter until last week, when Shapiro handed down the temporary order.Greene said she’s been seeing coronavirus patients since mid-March and that her hospital has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment.The ex-husband’s attorney also said concedes that every day their daughter loses with her mother will be made up, and that the two can make daily video calls until then.
Running back Le’Veon Bell (26) runs towards Cincinnati Bengals strong safety George Iloka (43) in the third quarter of an NFL football game on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright)After the Steelers manhandled the Bengals on Sunday Night, many were left wondering what could have been. What if the Steelers had played this well all year? What if Pouncey and Foote and others hadn’t been hurt? What if they didn’t start 0-4?Well, those are all the wrong questions to ponder, there are no if’s and re do’s in the world. The reality of the situation is this, none of those things occurred this year and the team is in the situation they’re in because they didn’t have a backup plan for the “if’s”.The black and gold looked great on Sunday Night, they looked like the team trying to clinch a playoff spot and not a team desperately clinging to their lives. The exposition that Big Ben and Antonio Brown put on was one that proves those two are the best players this team has, without them they’d be vying for the number one pick.On the defensive side of the ball, players like Jason Worilds and Lawrence Timmons stepped up to the plate and were impactful in determining the outcome of the football game. They showed they can be the two centerpieces of the defense moving into 2014 and beyond (if the team can re up Worilds).This game was about pride, it was about seeing who has the competitive fires burning inside them to win a largely meaningless game. This was an audition for the guys wearing the black and gold to see who was worth keeping next year and who the team should part ways with.It was all of those things but the one thing it was not was the display of a team that should be looked at as a contender who had things go wrong because this or that happened or a team that should be looked at in the ‘what if’ mode.They are what they are; a 6-8 ball club after that win. They’re a team in the middle of the pack. Middle of the pack teams can on occasion beat good teams but will also lose to the bad ones (see the Oakland, Minnesota and Tennessee games). Middle of the pack teams play inconsistently, see the Dolphins game just last week and the turnaround the team had this week. Or just look at the 0-4 start, to winning five of seven to now being 6-8.This team has its flaws this season and that’s ok. All teams go through a rebuild, the failure often comes when a team can’t form an identity and recognize who they really are. That’s what struck this team this year.While they thought they were still a contender this year, they decided to move forward with some aging, overpriced veterans. They should have cut ties with more of the older guys and implemented playing time for the younger generation to gain experience. The front office refused to accept or believe this team needed a rebuild but classified it as a transition. In essence they put everything back a year. What should have happened this year will need to happen next.The game last night should be looked upon fondly as it was a great win for the black and gold and very well could have been the final big game several of the old school veterans have together in a Steeler uniform. Just don’t look at it as ‘what if’, look at it as ‘what is’.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

A recent survey found that many South African entrepreneurs needed help with things such as business planning. Find out more about how to prepare yourself for an investor, here.The Real State of Entrepreneurship in South Africa 2017 survey finds that some entrepreneurs do not know where to go for funding. There are various sources of funding, such as angel investors and crowdfunding. (Image: Brand South Africa)Brand South Africa reporterFunding is one of the challenges faced by many entrepreneurs in South Africa. In the Real State of Entrepreneurship in South Africa 2017 survey, many entrepreneurs indicated that they required education specific to the practicalities of running a business such as marketing support and business planning.According to the Seed Academy, which conducted the survey, there were more than 1,200 respondents this year. In addition, to deepen its insight into the true state of entrepreneurship in South Africa, the survey expanded its scope from start-ups to all entrepreneurs at any stage of business development.It was found that 18% of respondents had attempted to get funding from banks or development funding institutions such as the Industrial Development Corporation or the Department of Trade and Industry.“Some entrepreneurs indicated that they simply didn’t know where to go for funding, especially in light of the fact that most early-stage business funding requirements are below the R100,000 threshold,” said Donna Rachelson, CEO of Seed Engine, which incorporates the Seed Academy and the WDB Seed Fund. This is the third annual survey the Academy has conducted.Here are some learnings to prepare yourself before you approach an investor for funding:The different types of fundingOnline publication Entrepreneur Magazine lists the different forms of funding as angel investment, funding from a bank, crowdfunding, funding for previously disadvantaged individuals, and bootstrapping.Angel investment is when a wealthy professional provides you with start-up capital in exchange for equity in the business or a fixed percentage interest on the loan. Angel investors can be individuals or can be part of an angel network, to distribute risk.Bank funding depends on the different types of loans available and which kind is best suited to your needs. You need to provide a full set of financials and a comprehensive business plan for the bank officials to examine.Crowdfunding is similar to angel investment, but many individuals may pledge different amounts to the business in exchange for equity, interest or other more creative returns. There are South Africans platforms for crowdfunding: startme.co.za, thundafund.com and crowdfunding.co.za. You can also try international crowdfunding platforms such as kickstarter.com, indiegogo.com and rockethub.com.Funding for previously disadvantaged individuals can be in the form of a grant, loan or tender, which is given to previously disadvantaged people who have small businesses.Bootstrapping means starting and growing your business without any external help.Essential elements an investor wantsMarketability, sustainability and the business owner’s passion for the project were the essential elements that would interest an investor, said Gerrie van Biljon, executive director of Business Partners. He told the online business network SME Toolkit South Africa that entrepreneurs should prepare a concise story around their business idea.Van Biljon also advised that the entrepreneur know every detail of their idea and business plan. “Your value proposition should come through succinctly – what are you offering to whom, and why will they be prepared to buy it.”Useful documents for preparing your business planDownload the Industrial Development Corporation’s guidelines on how to prepare a business plan; or download the Seed Academy’s Essential Guide to Funding, or download the Yali Network’s business plan checklist.Experts on what investors wantTafadzwa Madavo, business development manager at Riversands Incubation Hub, told SME South Africa that if entrepreneurs were looking for funding, they should test their ideas first. “They call it a minimal viable product. Don’t look at getting a R1-million for a concept you haven’t even tested.”Robynne Erwin, operations manager of FinFind, agreed with this sentiment. “If you are still at the ideas stage, you need to be aware of the fact that ideas are considered to be cheap. [It] only gets a value when you have taken a step to make it real.”Andrew Louw, CEO of +Louw, advised that the entrepreneur must be able to explain their idea simply and easily in 30 seconds or less. “Focus on the things you can do easily without raising funding. Also, bootstrap as far as you can without needing to raise extra capital.”Watch the three experts give more advice, here:Speaking to the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science, social entrepreneurs unpacked lessons they had learned when approaching investors.Pat Pillai, founder of Lifeco UnLtd, said the fundraising secret was to always trade for change. “Whether it is an investor, or it is someone who pays you a fee to make sure you grow young entrepreneurs in the most deserving and unprivileged part of our country, there’s always a report back on a return.”Sharanjeet Shan, founder of the Maths Centre, said that clarity and conviction about who you were and what you wanted to do was important. “If you’re not talking from the gut, it’s not going to work.”She added: “Why should I invest money in these people? I’m investing money because somebody’s life is going to change. If one person’s life changes, the lives of their community and the people around them change.”Stacey Brewer, co-founder of the Spark School, said she had learned that you should not change your mission nor your vision based on funding. “Believe in what you are and keep going, keep going.”Gregory Maqoma, founder of the Vuyani Dance Theatre, explained the conversation he had with his funders: “I allow them to understand the vision.“I also allow them to understand where we’re going — we talk about a five-year strategy. So, it’s a long term commitment rather than just focusing on a project. We align ourselves with what is desirable in terms of the space that we are serving.”His company was contributing to a bigger picture. “We can also be in a position where we can say it’s not only serving the community directly affected by the Vuyani Dance Theatre but it’s also about influencing policy; it’s about influencing change on a bigger platform, on a bigger scale.”Watch the video here:Know the term ‘due diligence’?You should educate yourself about due diligence if you are on the hunt for funding for your business, or if you are hoping to work with the government or with bigger companies as a supplier.SME South Africa explained that small and medium enterprises underwent due diligence when an investor evaluated the business as a potential investment opportunity, or a buyer was looking to acquire the enterprise.“Due diligence is a process where a business owner investigates the organisation based on their needs or requirements. The investigation can be legal, financial or anything that the business owner wants to evaluate before they contract themselves,” it reported.Learn more about how “due diligence” works, here.Sources: SME Toolkit South Africa, Entrepreneur Magazine, SME South Africa, Industrial Development Corporation, the YALI Network, and Seed Engine.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Wyoming Recycler Finds New Uses For Weathered 1x6sLARAMIE, Wyo. — For the past nine years, a Laramie recycling company, Centennial Woods, has been satisfying a growing market for recycled lumber by dismantling old snow fencing. The company has secured maintenance contracts from the state of Wyoming to replace weathered boards on miles of snow fence with new lumber. Formerly burned or discarded as waste, the old 1x6s are now sold for $1.69 a linear foot to green builders, mostly for use as board-and-batten siding.Wyoming maintains 200 miles of snow fencing. The 16-foot-tall structures are installed in windy areas to prevent snow from drifting onto highways. Most snow fence boards are Ponderosa pine, although spruce, fir, and lodgepole pine are also used. Wyoming’s dry, windy climate contributes to the boards’ longevity; the state replaces the boards every 7 to 25 years.According to Grant Porder, Centennials’ vice president for customer care, the reclaimed boards have an average moisture content of 7% when they are pulled from the fence. The 16-foot boards are trimmed to remove rot before they are resold.Business Is Growing“People are just looking for a good, true, solid wood product that they can use without guilt,” said John Pope, the president of Centennial Woods, explained to an Associated Press reporter. “What we really did is we recognized by building a national and international market for the wood, by highlighting its green aspects and its beauty, that we could grow this into a substantial business.”Centennial has customers all over the country. “Five years ago, we probably could have credibly sold wood into maybe 10 or 15 markets in the United States,” said Pope. “Now we also sell wood to places like Kansas City, Dallas, Boston, Manhattan, Los Angeles, Portland.”While Centennial recycled about 4 to 6 miles of snow fence in 1999, the company now dismantles between 20 and 25 miles every year. “The difference is green building,” said Pope.
Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement markhachman Tags:#1-Click#Amazon#Google#Google Wallet#Mobile Payments#mobile wallets#online retail#Payments#What’s In Your Mobile Wallet? What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Amazon’s 1-Click arguably offers the best shopping experience on the Web—desktop and mobile.But 1-Click has been slow to expand beyond Amazon’s walls. While Amazon offers the convenient checkout service to retail-website builders, competitors are understandably loath to embrace the e-commerce giant’s tools.Now a wiser, bloodier Google has re-entered the fray, taking lessons learned from Amazon and applying them to its own “1-Click” solution for Google Wallet, Instant Buy.But Google’s road to riches won’t lie through a button on a website. That’s the route it took in traditional Web e-commerce, with its older Google Checkout service, which Wallet replaced after it failed to unseat PayPal and other, more traditional credit-card-processing services. Instead, Google’s placing its bet on terrain where it has the upper ground: Android apps and Gmail.Google announced Google Wallet Instant Buy on Wednesday at its annual I/O conference. Instant Buy, a set of tools for Android developers, is a complement to the Google Wallet API that the company announced last fall. Instant Buy should probably be thought of an evolution of the Wallet API – the older API filled in payment information, while the new version offers a button to “Buy with Google”. Instant Buy serves to both authenticate the shopper and actually pay for the purchase, with an intermediary step to confirm. It’s a two-click solution the first time a shopper logs in, but then it’s down to one if they save their Google login information with the app.Why is this important? Because buying products via a smartphone can be a brutal experience, requiring dozens of steps to enter payment and shipping information – and users aren’t inclined to stick around if they get frustrated. More than 90 percent of mobile users leave a mobile site without buying anything, according to Mike Putnam, vice president of mobile at fashion site RueLala. For a merchant, a simple, painless buying experience is a virtual necessity, given the rising numbers of mobile shoppers. Last Cyber Monday, for example, about 11 percent of all purchases were made via smartphone, according to IBM, about 90 percent more than the year before. This year, about 15 percent of all online retail sales will take place via mobile, according to eMarketer. But payment buttons aren’t exactly new. So how does Googl plan to get an edge? The familiarity and ubiquity of Gmail, for one. Google also added the ability Wednesday to pay by email, clicking a “$” sign to “attach” a few bucks, much like a document or picture. The funds simply go into the recipient’s Google Wallet, where they can be redeemed for real money (via a connection with a bank account) or used to buy movies, games and apps from the Play Store.PayPal and Dwolla, among others, have offered pay-by-email for years. But PayPal and Dwolla don’t have one of the most popular email platforms in the world, tacitly encouraging users to send money at the push of a button. That’s one of the more important hooks that the new Wallet offers, a Google spokeswoman said. Eventually, it’s possible that Google could push Wallet back into the real world – where it first started out, of course. What Are The Secrets To Success? Lock-in And ContextIn a horse race, a jockey’s tools are the whip and blinders. So it is in mobile payments. The most effective way of retaining customers is to eliminate the possibility of going elsewhere. Within the mobile space, the most effective blinder is the app. If you click Amazon’s mobile app to buy a router or garden hoe, chances are you’re not going anywhere else. Amazon knows that you can shop elsewhere, pay a higher price, and enter your information across all of those dozens of fields – or you can simply stay and buy with one click.Payments by Amazon, of course, is Amazon’s one-click solution, ported to the Web. But check out Payments by Amazon’s customer list: the biggest name is probably Ace Hardware. Payments by Amazon offers the same one-click payment that Amazon does, but for the consumer, without the context of Amazon.com, it’s just another provider. And for most merchants, Amazon is the enemy.Google’s hold over the customer is weaker. Within Gmail, users simply don’t have the choice to send funds via any other provider, but they can simply use PayPal or Dwolla and send money to the same email address. But what Google offers is what Payments by Amazon can’t: context. Within the Play Store, Google is building recommendations for movies, music, and apps, based on your own preferences and what your friends have recommended. Payment providers have a number of arrows in their quiver. PayPal offers the ability to pay via its service at retail locations. Dwolla users can pay via Facebook and Twitter. But attendees at Google I/O suspect that the next step is for Google to begin building profiles of real-world purchases, so that if the Gap adopts Google, visitors to its online store will know what their Google+ friends bought. Virtually every other payment provider lacks the social integration that Google includes. The idea behind products like Google Wallet—where you could leave your wallet at home and pay for everything by tapping your phone—never really took off. Why? Numerous technical reasons have been suggested—a lack of infrastructure, resistance from financial institutions—but the conversation so far has focused on the problem of paying for things. And paying for things isn’t as important as the shopping experience itself, and providing the context for an informed decision that the customer is excited about.“I’m not saying that there are no advantages to mobile payments,” Nick Holland, a former Yankee Group payments analyst, recently wrote. “However, the opportunity for consumer/merchant value addition seems to be less around the transaction and far more around augmenting the retail experience. The mobile payments obsession is missing the point.”And that happy coincidence may well benefit Google.Photo by Nick Statt for ReadWrite

UNIVERSITY PARK, PA – OCTOBER 27: Penn State students cheer their Nittany Lions after staging a “white out” during the game against the Ohio State Buckeyes at Beaver Stadium October 27, 2007 in University Park, Pennsylvania. Ohio State won 37-17. (Photo by Hunter Martin/Getty Images)Beaver Stadium was already expected to be rocking when the Michigan Wolverines head to Happy Valley to take on Penn State in late November. Now, the school announced Monday night, it will officially be a “White Out” game for the Nittany Lions. Penn State will host the Wolverines for such an affair for the third time ever – and first since 2013. Via PSU:This will be the third time that Penn State has hosted Michigan in a full stadium White Out game and the fourth time overall. The last time the teams met in a White Out game, Penn State claimed a dramatic 43-40 victory in four overtimes in 2013.The game time for the 2015 Penn State White Out game will be announced at a later date. The Penn State dorms will remain open through 10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 22, which will allow students to attend the game before heading on Thanksgiving break.Penn State has also introduced new Nike tee shirts to commemorate the occasion. You can’t buy them yet, but you can pre-order them. Penn State, which played in a bowl game last year for the first time since the 2011 season, will be looking to continue rebuilding under head coach James Franklin. A win over Michigan would be a huge step.
