New Head Volleyball Coach Jesse Mahoney

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Jesse Mahoney has been named the fifth head volleyball coach in University of Colorado history, athletic director Rick George announced Wednesday.Mahoney, a Boulder native, will make the move up U.S. Highway 36 in returning to where he began his coaching career.  He has spent the last four seasons at the University of Denver, where he guided the Pioneers to an 88-41 mark, including back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances (2014, 2015). The Pioneers finished with a 27-8 mark this past fall after falling to No. 5 Washington in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.  In 2014, DU was 27-7, its season ending in the first round of the tournament, on that occasion to No. 13 Colorado State, also in the first round.“When I met with our volleyball student-athletes, I told them that we would go out and hire the best coach, mentor and leader for them, and I feel like we accomplished all three,” George said.  “I am excited that Jesse is back home again as a Buff.”George was alluding to the fact that Mahoney got his start in coaching as the head coach of the CU men’s club volleyball team from 1995-98.  His teams were ranked in the top 20 his entire time here and finished fifth in the 1996 national club championship.The Pioneers accumulated a 46-18 conference mark with Mahoney at the helm, winning the Summit League regular season championship the last two seasons with identical 13-3 league records; Denver also claimed the postseason tournament title both years.  The 2014 crown was the school’s first in the sport after joining the league in 2013, in which Mahoney coached the Pioneers to a 10-4 league mark and runner-up finishes in both the regular season and in the postseason tourney.  That team was 17-13 overall, as was his first team at DU in 2012, when the Pioneers were members of the Western Athletic Conference (with a 10-8 mark in conference play). While at Denver, Mahoney coached 17 all-conference selections, including a pair of 2014 AVCA Division I Honorable Mention All-Americans. His 2014 recruiting class was tabbed No. 28 by prepvolleyball.com. Nationally, the Pioneers’ offense was ranked in the top 25 in hitting efficiency three times (2013-15) and this fall the defense cracked the top 25 in opponent hitting efficiency.  Mahoney also helped the Pioneers to the AVCA Team Academic Award from 2012-14 (those honored for 2015 will be announced early next year).Prior to his success at DU, Mahoney served as an assistant head coach at Colorado State (2005-11), including four as the associate head coach.  In his time there under head coach Tom Hilbert, the Rams participated in seven consecutive NCAA Tournaments and won five Mountain West titles.  CSU compiled a 162-51 record during his time on the staff.While with the Rams, he helped to assemble three recruiting classes ranked in the top 25 by prepvollyball.com.  His primary responsibility in practice was working with the middle blockers, and Colorado State was ranked nationally in the top 10 in blocking five of his seven seasons.  He tutored two All-American middle blockers as well as multiple All-Conference and All-Region performers.Mahoney joined the staff at CSU after six seasons as the head coach at Fort Hays State, where the Tigers recorded a 107-82 overall record under his direction.  FHSU tallied an impressive 56-12 record over his last two years there (2003-04), which included a 31-5 mark and No. 11 final national ranking in 2004.His first varsity coaching position was as an assistant coach at Colorado Christian after his time as CU’s club coach.  Mahoney has also coached in the club circuit as a member of the Front Range Volleyball Club, guiding the 18-Black to the 1998 USA Junior Rocky Mountain Region title.Mahoney is no stranger to the University of Colorado, having earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 1995 and a Juris Doctorate degree from CU’s Law School in 1999.  He is married to the former Gwen McEntyre, and the couple has three children: Macy, Griffin and Declan.Image and story courtesy of Colorado Athletics.

Microsoft’s long-term COO to depart

first_imgHome Microsoft’s long-term COO to depart Microsoft announced it will revamp its sales and leadership teams following the departure of chief operating officer (COO) Kevin Turner, who leaves after 11 years at the company.Turner, who quits to become CEO at trading firm Citadel Securities, is one of the company’s highest paid executives, according to Wall Street Journal, and was primarily responsible for sales of every product at the company.In a public email addressed to Microsoft staff, Satya Nadella, CEO, said he will use the departure to “more deeply integrate sales into the rest of Microsoft and form one unified leadership team”.To that end, Nadella appears to have divided Turner’s position among five employees, with Judson Althoff set to lead worldwide commercial business, Jean Philippe Courtoise heading up global sales, marketing and operations, while Chris Capossela will man worldwide marketing and the consumer business.Kurt DelBene will head up IT and operations, as well as corporate strategy, and Amy Hood will be in charge of finance.The company, it appears, will no longer have a COO.Nadella said the changes reflect the fact that “the world is changing – and Microsoft must evolve with it and stay ahead”.Last year, Nadella also shook up leadership at the company following the departures of four senior executives, including Stephen Elop, the former chief of Nokia.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons smashes sales records in the UK

first_imgAnimal Crossing: New Horizons smashes sales records in the UKIt is the fastest-selling single Switch game everChristopher DringHead of Games B2BSunday 22nd March 2020Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleGfKNintendoAnimal Crossing: New Horizons has become a major hit in the UK.Nintendo’s critically acclaimed sequel has sold more copies in its first week on sale than the launch sales of all previous Animal Crossing games combined, including the spin-offs. The launch is 3.5 times bigger than the last game in the series, 2013’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS, which was the previous biggest launch for the series. It is also the biggest single game launch on Nintendo Switch since the console came out, although if you combine the sales of Pokémon Sword and Shield together, those games enjoyed a bigger first week. This only factors in physical sales, it does not include digital download numbers, which may have been higher than usual considering the concerns around the COVID-19 virus that has seen the UK Government recommend that citizens stay indoors. Nintendo does not share digital download data externally.It’s no surprise to learn that Nintendo’s game was No.1 in the boxed charts this week, comfortably ahead of Doom: Eternal, which debuts at No.2. Doom: Eternal’s physical launch sales are roughly a third smaller than its predecessor, but the drop may not be quite so significant if we factor in digital sales. Unfortunately, Bethesda also doesn’t share digital download figures, so we won’t know how the game really performed.

That’s more than three times the previous week’s numbers. Of course, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom: Eternal played a big part in that, but game sales have surged across the board. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at No.3 enjoyed a 282% sales jump, FIFA 20 at No.4 posted a 326% increase, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe at No.5 achieved a rise of 100%… and the list goes on. In fact, only three games across the entire Top 40 dropped in sales week-on-week — Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX fell 24% in sales, Two Point Hospital slipped 8%, and Nioh 2, which was No.1 last week, fell 55% in sales. All three of those games are relatively recent releases.According to retailers, that has been a jump in demand for games as consumers prepare to stay at home to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Professor Seecharan launches History of Cricket in Guyana – Volume 2

first_imgVOLUME Two of a History of Cricket in Guyana is not just about the accounts of cricket games played over 100 years ago in British Guiana; it underscores how those games galvanised our people and the impact the sport had on our society.Professor Clem Seecharan, though the support of the Hand-in-Hand Group of Companies, encapsulated these achievements in an entertaining and informative way in his 758-page second book of the series, which he officially launched at the world-famous Georgetown Cricket Club on Friday night.Professor Clem Seecharan displays the second volume of his book, The History of Cricket in Guyana.(See story on page 31)The accolades for the author were great and the audience included generations of cricketers from the legendary West Indies players Lance Gibbs, Roger Harper, Dr Shivnarine Chanderpaul, and current national captain Leon Johnson, to a few cricketers now trying to make their names in the sport.Among the notables who addressed the audience were Chairman of Hand-in-Hand Group of Companies John Carpenter, Dr Ian McDonald, the author himself, Harper, Gibbs, Minister of Social Cohesion with responsible for Culture, Youth and Sport Dr George Norton and Sales Manager of the Group of Companies Shanomae Baptiste, who gave the vote of thanks.Carpenter said that Hand-in-Hand was honoured to have played a part in the venture and that the series, which analyses cricket from 1865 to 1867 (Volume One) and 1898-1914 (Volume Two), begs a Volume Three.It was also emphasised that the Hand-in-Hand Company which started in 1865 also played a part in the integral development during the time of the publications. This year marks 140 years since construction started at the company’s head office.WORK OF ARTDr McDonald, who has known Seecharan for over three decades, paid respect to his commitment to his craft. He said that the author’s dedication to work, combined with his narrative skills, became a work of art.The renowned author also called Seecharan the “most appropriate author” to do the volumes.DCC discussion: From left, former Guyana cricketer Mark Harper, former West Indian cricketers Lance Gibbs and Roger Harper having a nostalgic moment.Also showing adoration for the cricket series was Minister Norton, who called the professor’s series a well-researched publication and an inspiration.“Your book helps us to better appreciate the importance of cricket in our society. As a politician, I would be happy if more of us can understand the importance of cricket in Guyana.”The minister added that he was confident that the series of books would serve to educate and enlighten many generations about Guyana’s past cricketing heroes.In highlighting how integral a role cricket has played in our past, Gibbs pointed out that there were some aspects of the game that the book did not cover, since backyard and alleyway games were not documented. The 84-year-old then took the crowd on a nostalgic journey when different versions of cricket were common and makeshift apparatuses were used as bat and ball.STAGNATION OF CRICKETSeecharan, who read for a doctorate in History at the University of Warwick in 1990, examines the stagnation of the game in colonial Guyana in the decade and a half before the Great War.He said that despite the flamboyance of GCC – founded in 1858 – which was vibrant in fostering regional cricket, “Guyanese cricket was marooned on a plateau of underachievement”.He added that the topography of the land and the share magnitude of the rainforest was a breeding ground for malaria which was one of the main hindrances when it came to the quality of cricket being played by our former cricketers.The 16 years of analysis filled many holes that existed about our past – one that will be kept alive through Seecharan’s undertaking.last_img read more

Holloway: Decisions have been made on the futures of QPR players

first_imgEmbed from Getty Images Ian Holloway says decisions have been taken on the futures of some QPR players.The likes of Jamie Mackie, James Perch and Nedum Onuoha are coming towards the end of their contracts at Loftus Road.Manager Holloway has also been keen to offload striker Idrissa Sylla, but Rangers have not previously received any suitable offers.AdChoices广告“I’m going to have to make some really tough decisions,” Holloway said after his team’s 1-0 defeat at Reading, where Rangers dominated large spells of the game.“With some of them I have already done, but we’ll make some announcements on that.“We have to try to move forward as a club. I’m paid to do that. And I feel we’ve moved forward massively when you look at that performance.“I’m delighted with my lads. I want them to grow and I want them to believe.”Holloway also said he was unhappy that Jake Bidwell and not one of Rangers’ attacking players stepped up to take an injury-time penalty, which was saved.

Wimbledon 2012: Andy Murray beaten by Roger Federer in final

first_imgAndy Murray’s bid to win Wimbledon was ended by Roger Federer as the Swiss claimed a record-equalling seventh SW19 triumph and 17th Grand Slam title.Murray, 25, was aiming to become the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to lift a major trophy.But 30-year-old Federer won 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4 on Centre Court to match the mark set by Pete Sampras and reclaim the world number one ranking.A tearful Murray has now lost all four of his Grand Slam finals.He was the first Briton to contest the Wimbledon men’s singles final since Bunny Austin in 1938, but fell just short of the ultimate goal.Federer fully deserved his victory, which not only sees him level Sampras on seven titles but also a record 286 weeks as world number one. He is the second-oldest man to occupy top spot and will go to the Olympics – also being staged at the All England Club – as clear favourite.Murray, who collects the £575,000 runner-up prize, joins his coach Ivan Lendl as the only men in the Open Era to lose their first four Grand Slam finals.Having made poor starts in each of the previous three – all of which finished in three-set defeats – Murray knew it was vital to secure the early momentum.All was going to plan as a couple of pummelling backhands down the line, a tactic many highlighted pre-match, helped Murray break in the opening game and then consolidate the advantage for a 2-0 lead.Federer looked uneasy with the pace his opponent was setting and began deploying the sliced his groundstrokes to slow things down. A majestic backhand landed on the baseline to engineer a break-back point in game four, and he converted it when Murray found the net.Both men needed to serve their way out of trouble as the pressure mounted and, crucially, Murray produced a sensational volley at his feet to save the second of two break points in a 13-minute game eight.He then struck with the help of a forehand pass that Federer ducked to avoid being hit – reminiscent of the aggression shown by Lendl during his own career – and comfortably served out the first set.Statistically, Murray actually improved in almost every area during the second, but the key difference was he could not take his chances.Whereas the 25-year-old converted both breaks points that came his way in the first set, he let two slip at 2-2 and another two at 4-4. Federer held for 6-5 before going on the attack, and he came from 40-15 down to level the match with a sensational backhand drop volley.Heavy rain arrived at at 16:14 BST with Federer 40-0 up in game three of set three, and the prospect of further downpours saw the roof closed.When play resumed 35 minutes later the Swiss, who destroyed world number one Novak Djokovic indoors on Friday, was vastly superior and put Murray under the cosh in a marathon game five.Murray was reeled in from 40-0, Federer moving to deuce when the Scot took a heavy tumble at the net, and he slipped again before finally succumbing on a sixth break point.last_img read more

After controversial Hawaii comment, Sessions says ‘nobody has a sense of humor’

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions says people should lighten up about controversial comments he made earlier this week about the state of Hawaii.When asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview Sunday on This Week about why he referred to Hawaii as an “island in the Pacific,” Sessions responded “nobody has a sense of humor anymore.”Sessions stirred up controversy this week when he referred to Hawaii as an “island in the Pacific” to conservative radio host Mark Levin on his program.“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president from the United States what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,” Sessions said on the program Tuesday. Sessions’ comments were referring to the Hawaii judge who issued a nationwide restraining order on President Trump’s revised executive order that calls for suspending the entire refugee program for 120 days and halting immigration from six countries in the Middle East and Africa for 90 days.Sessions’ comments prompted backlash from Hawaii’s Democratic senators and representatives in Congress.“The suggestion that being from Hawaii somehow disqualifies Judge Watson from performing his Constitutional duty is dangerous, ignorant, and prejudiced,” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said in a statement Thursday. “I am frankly dumbfounded that our nation’s top lawyer would attack our independent judiciary. But we shouldn’t be surprised. This is just the latest in the Trump Administration’s attacks against the very tenets of our Constitution and democracy.”Hirono also tweeted, “Hey Jeff Sessions, this #IslandinthePacific has been the 50th state for going on 58 years. And we won’t succumb to your dog whistle politics.” Hey Jeff Sessions, this #IslandinthePacific has been the 50th state for going on 58 years. And we won’t succumb to your dog whistle politics— Senator Mazie Hirono (@maziehirono) April 20, 2017When, Stephanopoulos pressed Sessions on This Week for a response to Hirono, asking “Why not just call it the state of Hawaii?” Sessions instead defended the administration’s actions, saying that the executive order is “lawful” and he plans to continue the fight to reinstate it.“The president — nobody has a sense of humor anymore. Look. The president has to deal with the Department of Defense, the national intelligence agencies, CIA. He knows the threats to this country. He is responsible for protecting America,” the attorney general said. “This order is lawful. It’s within his authority constitutionally and explicit statutory authority. We’re going to defend that order all the way up. And so you do have a situation in which one judge out of 700 in America has stopped this order.“I think it’s a mistake. And we’re going to battle in the courts and I think we’ll eventually win,” Sessions added.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img read more
