Reutter-Adamek was disqualified for causing the crash and the referees decided to re-skate the race.“I was a little riled up about it because I didn’t like why we fell,” Gehring said. “But it helped me to re-settle a little bit.”Reutter-Adamek saw a hole going into the corner, but Gehring closed it up.“I hate being a skater that causes trouble,” Reutter-Adamek said. “But to watch her win with that type of composure, I mean that’s speedskating at its best. Look how she picked herself back up and won that race. That’s composure.”There was drama in the do-over, too. Kooreman was penalized for kicking her skate across the finish line as Gehring crossed first. Kooreman lost her balance and went sliding across half the rink.“I wanted to go for it at the line,” Kooreman said. “My back foot just came out from under me and they called that kicking out, I guess. It’s dependent on who decides what day they want to call it.”Kooreman said she wasn’t intentionally trying to kick out, which is illegal in the wild and wooly sport. She and Gehring were leaning on each other at the finish line.“Right now, I feel fired up because I’m kind of ticked off,” Kooreman said.

Jenkins lifts Monrovia, 39-36

first_img“I sat out most of the fourth quarter with foul trouble and we ran a play and I got wide open and I just made it,” said Jenkins, who collected 10 points and seven rebounds. Prior to Jenkins’ game-winner, Krystyn Jacobs was the only Monrovia player to make a field goal in the fourth quarter, when she scored eight of her game-high 16 points. “Offensively, everyone wasn’t there so I tried to get open looks,” Jacobs said. With a play designed for Jacobs, it was Jenkins who got the final open look and didn’t hesitate. “That was huge,” Monrovia coach Mike Wagner said of Jenkins’ shot. “She’s a big-game player and she wanted the ball.” Maryum Jenkins, who was suffering from the flu, provided the ultimate cure for the Wildcats’ blues. Monrovia trailed 36-35 when Jenkins buried a 3-pointer from the corner with 15 seconds remaining in regulation to put the Wildcats on top for good. HUNTINGTON BEACH – Perhaps weary from the long drive, Monrovia High School’s girls basketball team had trouble mounting offense throughout its contest Wednesday night against Edison. Monrovia woke up from its cat nap just enough to get out of Huntington Beach alive with a 39-36 win over the Chargers in a CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA second-round contest. center_img Jenkins made one of two free throws before Edison’s Wahine Kepilino missed a 3-pointer as time expired to propel Monrovia (20-4) into the quarterfinals against Diamond Ranch on Saturday. The site of that game will be determined by coin flip. Both teams showed jitters in the first quarter as Edison committed 10 turnovers to six for Monrovia. Add in the Wildcats’ poor shooting, and the Chargers led 7-5 after one. Simone Ibbotson’s 3-pointer gave Edison a 10-5 advantage early in the second quarter. Monrovia held Edison without a field goal for the final 6:45 and out-scored the Chargers 8-2 to take a 13-12 halftime edge. “I never thought in my wildest dreams that we could hold a team to 12 points in a half and only be up by one,” Wagner said. The game was tied heading into the final eight minutes. Melanie Lisnock knocked down a 3-pointer to open the fourth quarter to give the Chargers (17-8) a 29-26 lead. They remained on top until Jenkins’ decisive jumper. scott.galetti@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Morgan Stanley: Mobile Internet Market Will Be Twice The Size of Desktop Internet

first_imgTags:#mobile#Trends#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img Related Posts Morgan Stanley has released a couple of bulky documents about the mobile Internet: ‘The Mobile Internet Report,’ a 424-page report which explores eight major themes; and ‘The Mobile Internet Report Key Themes,’ a 659-slide presentation that drills down on thoughts covered in the report. We’ve embedded both documents below.Perhaps the most remarkable statement in the report is that the Mobile Internet market will be “at least 2x size of Desktop Internet,” which Morgan Stanley bases on analysis comparing Internet users with mobile subscribers.The report starts out by saying that Apple’s iPhone/iTouch/iTunes ecosystem “may prove to be the fastest ramping and most disruptive technology product / service launch the worldhas ever seen.” It goes on to state that “a handful of incumbents (like Apple, Google, Amazon.com and Skype) appear especially well positioned for mobile changes.”Growth in the Mobile Internet is being driven by 3G adoption and the increasing popularity of smartphones, of which the iPhone is the leader in terms of Web traffic. Morgan Stanley predicts that smartphones “will out-ship the global notebook + netbook market in 2010E and out-ship the global PC market (notebook + netbook + desktop) by 2012E.”The firm has always been bullish on mobile Internet, as Mary Meeker’s Web 2.0 conference presentations over the years show.

Adam Zampa banking on dual spin threat with Nathan Lyon at 2019 World Cup

first_imgAdam Zampa banking on dual spin threat with Nathan Lyon at 2019 World CupAustralia leg-spinner Adam Zampa is confident that in combination with senior partner Nathan Lyon, the duo could prove seminal to the side’s success at the 2019 World Cupadvertisement Press Trust of India LondonMay 21, 2019UPDATED: May 21, 2019 11:10 IST Australia will stay quite upbeat to defend its World Cup winning title (Photo: AP)HIGHLIGHTSAdam Zampa and Nathan Lyon were the architects of Australia’s ODI series win against PakistanZampa believes the duo can play the same role at the 2019 world CupIn their opening World Cup clash on June 1, Australia will take on a spin-heavy Afghanistan teamAdam Zampa believes his attacking leg-spin combined with Nathan Lyon’s precise off-spin can prove to be an important weapon for Australia as they look to defend their title at the ICC World Cup beginning May 30.Zampa and Lyon snapped 12 wickets between them in the five-match ODI series win over Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.”I think it was a few months ago where we actually spoke to each other and said, ‘I reckon we can play a huge role coming up in the World Cup together so let’s do everything we can to make sure we’re both there’,” Zampa told reporters.”We play two different roles. (Lyon) is so accurate, a beautiful off-spinner, bowls to his field really well and bowls really tight. That means I can attack from the other end.”Zampa, who has played in English conditions following a spell at Essex last summer, said communication is the key to their success.”We’ve communicated really well over the last few months. We speak a lot in the nets, we speak a lot in the field, just about whatever – anything – spin bowling, field settings or how the ball’s going to come out. Just anything,” he said.”I think it’s going to play a huge role for us sometime throughout the World Cup. I don’t know if it will be every game but I definitely see us playing a huge role together.”Zampa reckons taking wickets in the middle over will be key and said skipper Aaron Finch has backed them to go for wickets.”That is something we have spoken about, and Finchy is big on trying to take wickets. If you are bowling to the middle and lower order in the last 10 overs it makes it so much easier for the fast bowlers at the death,” he said.advertisement”If you are bowling to in-form batsmen like Virat Kohli or Jos Buttler, for example, if they are in it makes it a lot harder, so wickets in the middle are so important in one-day cricket.”In their opening World Cup clash on June 1, the five-time champions will take on a spin-heavy Afghanistan team, which has one of the best current spinners Rashid Khan in its ranks.Zampa had shared a net session with Rashid earlier in the year and he said he will pass on some of his secrets to the Aussie batsmen.”I am so glad I did that because I now know I could never bowl like Rashid,” he said.”But having that information now means I can give it to our batters.
