Redlands opens SCIAC play against La Verne

first_imgThe University of Redlands is about to find out just how important a tough preseason schedule can be. The Bulldogs (1-2) open Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play at 7 tonight at Ted Runner Stadium. A resurgent La Verne (3-1, 1-0) will provide the opposition. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 The Bulldogs are coming off a bye which Maynard says came at an opportune time. His team is as healthy as it has been all season, thanks to five days off from full-contact practices. Senior middle linebacker and team captain Nick Steele probably could not have played last week if the Bulldogs had a game, but should be able to return tonight. He has been plagued by neck and shoulder problems that date back two years and was sidelined two weeks ago in the win over Chapman. Steele’s return is also big because his backup, Alex Aldrich, re-injured an already surgically repaired knee and is out for the season. “He (Steele) is such a key to everything we do on defense,” Maynard said. “It is very important to have him in there. It is just something that flares up.” Maynard scouted La Verne’s SCIAC opener last week against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and was impressed. The Leopards, coached by Don Morel, have not managed a winning record in conference play since 1999, but loom as a formidable threat to favorite Occidental this year. Coach Mike Maynard has scheduled the likes of Colorado College and Puget Sound in the past, but he says those schools no longer want to play Redlands. So he has had to search for other opponents. This year’s slate included Whitworth, Trinity (Texas) and Chapman, the first two of which are nationally ranked. “It’s tough opening with teams like that, but hopefully in the end it will pay off,” Maynard said. “What you really want is to be ready for conference play, and those games helped expose what we needed to work on.” center_img The Leopards are led by quarterback Brian Guerrero, the SCIAC male athlete of the week two weeks ago who leads the conference in most passing categories. “They’re a pass-first offense. He (Guerrero) has just been lighting it up,” Maynard said. “He doesn’t look as mobile as he has been in the past, but he is a very dangerous passer. We’re going to have to get a pass rush, so he doesn’t have all day back there.” Other local teams will also be in action. Victor Valley (1-4) has a good shot at halting its four-game losing streak as it entertains winless Antelope Valley (0-5) in Foothill Conference action at 1 p.m., in Victorville. Meanwhile, San Bernardino Valley College (2-2, 1-1) treks to San Diego Mesa (2-2) for a 5 p.m. showdown. Chaffey hosts defending champion Grossmont, which slipped by SBVC last week 20-17. Riverside Community College (3-2) is idle this week. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Early Wednesday, city firefighters deliberately burned the industrial building in the 7900 block of Haskell Avenue where 60 to 70 sticks of old, unstable dynamite were found, authorities said. The San Diego Freeway was closed, Metrolink service from Ventura County halted and some neighboring buildings evacuated during the hour the fire burned. The dynamite was found after police responded to a call about a suspicious package in Valley Village, which led to Wurth. Wurth then led police to the building on Haskell Avenue where Fostersmith and Chornuy were found. Fostersmith fled inside the building, beginning a six-hour standoff with police, authorities said. Chornuy surrendered, telling police about the dynamite in the building. VAN NUYS- Two men pleaded not guilty Thursday in connection with the discovery of unstable dynamite in a Van Nuys industrial building, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said. Guy Fostersmith, 43, of Los Angeles and Arthur Chornuy, 35, of Marina del Rey were charged with felony possession of a destructive device near a public area and possession of an explosive. They pleaded not guilty during their arraignment in Van Nuys Superior Court and are scheduled to return to the courthouse Jan. 5 so a date can be set for their preliminary hearing. A third man, James Wurth, whose residence is unknown, was scheduled to be arraigned on the same charges today at the Van Nuys courthouse.last_img read more

Patrick Marleau sheds tears of joy in Shark Tank return

The name Link … I’m going to guess that most Sharks observers had the same reaction early in the 1997-98 season upon seeing Patrick Marleau for the first time.“Who’s that?” I asked a colleague, incredulous, upon seeing Marleau streak down the ice with wings on his skates.Marleau was just a kid then, 18 years old. The Sharks were even younger — just starting their seventh season.The Sharks had compiled a relatively comprehensive dossier for such a young outfit.last_img

SaaS Is Over-Promising and Under-Delivering, Survey Says

first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Tags:#enterprise steven walling IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts center_img Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… According to a new survey of more than 300 enterprises by Gartner Research, software as a service has failed to impress business users across the board. Both U.S. and U.K. users polled were far from enthusiastic about their experiences with SaaS. Most telling was that customers gave the most dismal reviews to areas where vendors are making the biggest promises: namely, low costs and high performance. Despite changing attitudes towards its security and reliability, these results suggest that providers are creating some of their own ills by overselling and under-delivering when it comes to key benefits of SaaS.Where SaaS Has FailedRespondents replied with surprising unanimity on how lukewarm they felt about the performance of SaaS: on 16 factors, all received less than 5 on a 7 point scale. But those areas where they expressed greatest dissatisfaction were those in which SaaS companies have continually made rather grandiose claims. Cost: Few enterprises anticipated annual costs to be so high. Hardly surprising, since rock-bottom cost is the number one promise of vendors of all stripes. After signing up, however, 42% said that there were high and often unexpected costs to SaaS, making it the number one reason they rejected it. Ease of Integration: Painless interoperability with their legacy applications is a key consideration of businesses before diving into SaaS, and it’s also the number two disappointment that causes them to leave it behind. For our bet, this is one realm where providers are already on the ball with improvements; countless development teams are working hard to make their applications play nice with SharePoint and other enterprise standbys. Speed of Implementation: Fast deployment, even just days or hours in extreme cases, is a feature that the majority of outfits promote. But lack of speed in implementation garnered the third lowest rate of satisfaction. What Vendors Can Do To Fix ThisEnterprise vendors, this is your challenge: capitalize on the growing acceptance of SaaS without being overzealous. Continuing declines in IT budgets will give you a seat at the table, regardless of other concerns. But an easy pitch on being efficient and cost-effective doesn’t give you leeway to brand SaaS as a magic bullet. To do that is to shoot yourself in the foot.
