Senators propose mandatory active shooter training

first_imgAlexandra Ting | Daily TrojanReady for action · Senator Tiffany Lian stressed the importance of preparedness in her active shooter training proposal at Tuesday’s meeting.Senators Tiffany Lian and Tyler Matheson presented a proposal to make active shooter preparedness training mandatory for students at Tuesday’s Undergraduate Student Government Senate meeting. Senators Leena Danpour and Sabrina Enriquez, as well as Secretary Danya Rafiqi and Parliamentarian Tricia Xu, also worked on drafting the resolution.The online training would prepare students for how to react in a situation where one or more armed people are present on campus. It would be similar in style to AlcoholEdu, the online drinking safety program that all incoming freshmen are required to complete.The idea was in part sparked by a shooting on the UCLA campus that took place on June 1, which sent the school into lockdown and ended with the death of a professor. This event, Lian said, hit close to home.“As neighbors to UCLA, this really woke us up,” Lian said. “If this could happen at UCLA, this could happen at USC just as easily.”Though the DPS website describes a program called “Run, Hide, Fight,” a method promoted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security describing the best way to react when confronted with an active shooter, few people are aware of this initiative. The plan instructs students to run while leaving personal belongings behind, to hide behind locked doors and to fight only if absolutely necessary.“The limited lockdown, which is what we used to do in high school, was something that the staff grew up with as well,” Matheson said. “So we have an environment where people don’t really understand the dynamics of what an active shooter situation might be.”To support their proposal, the senators brought up a 2007 report on the benefits of AlcoholEdu, which was conducted one semester after the program was first implemented at USC. The report indicated that students had a greater awareness of how much they were drinking after completing the program, as well as a better understanding of the dangers associated with excessive alcohol consumption. The senators also mentioned, however, that no further summaries have been done on the performance of AlcoholEdu in the 10 years since its original implementation, which points to a need for regular and thorough reviews to ensure that any mandatory training program is doing its job. The active shooter training proposal also pointed out several fatal school shootings, such as incidents at Seattle Pacific University and Umpqua Community College, as evidence of the real dangers that active shooters pose to students, and to stress the importance of  being prepared. After Lian and Matheson finished their presentation, Danpour explained her plans to work on tuition transparency by sending out a memorandum to students once the administration figures out what the next year’s tuition will be. The memorandum would compare the previous year’s tuition to the upcoming year’s tuition, as well as show a breakdown of how the tuition money would be allocated.Sen. Paul Samaha also brought up his plans to advocate for tuition affordability and put a stop to the yearly tuition increases, such as ensuring that a student is present at meetings that decide tuition costs. “[The board members] are not in touch with the realities of being a USC student,” Samaha said. “They have no idea that students are starving, that some people end up homeless.”last_img read more

3 things Dino Babers said at his weekly press conference

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Dino Babers addressed the media at his weekly press conference on Monday, ahead of Syracuse’s (1-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) matchup with Connecticut (2-1, 0-1 American Athletic) at 1 p.m. in East Harford, Connecticut on Saturday.Babers gave no updates on injured players, including safety Kielan Whitner and center Jason Emerich, who did not dress for the loss to South Florida. He said that information would come later in the week.Here are three things he did say.‘I’ve been down a little bit’When Babers was asked about how he keeps his players upbeat despite a 1-2 start to the season — the two losses coming by sizeable amounts — he responded by expressing his own feelings.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I have not been up in spirit,” he said. “I’ve been down a little bit. I really have.”John Williams | Contributing PhotographerSyracuse’s players don’t realize how close they are to making the transition, Babers said. “All they do is, ‘Hey we’re 1-2. Yada yada yada.’ And look at themselves not in a good light.”Babers said he doesn’t think the team is as bad as the Louisville game as that he sees it as good as the first quarter against South Florida in which the Orange jumped out to a 17-0 lead.Eric Dungey “probably would have scored” with a better throw from Moe NealWith 20 seconds left in the first half and down 28-17, Syracuse faced a 3rd-and-5 at South Florida’s 40-yard line. Quarterback Eric Dungey tossed the ball to running back Moe Neal, who then launched it downfield to Dungey. The quarterback turned receiver had to jump in the air and only tipped the ball with his hand before being hit hard.Babers said after the game that he would call the play again and elaborated on Monday that it could have resulted in a touchdown if Neal’s throw had been sharper.“The ball was in the air a little bit longer than it has been in practice,” Babers said. “If the air would’ve been taken out of the ball and it would’ve been a little bit more of a line and he caught the ball — based off of his running skills and speed — he probably would have scored and we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”Defensive mistakes a result of old habitsSyracuse’s defense has been heavily exploited by the likes of Louisville and South Florida. Even Colgate drove down the field for a touchdown on its first drive of the season (with the help of a running into the kicker penalty).SU has allowed 649.5 yards per game against FBS teams, good for last in the country. The next closest is Texas Tech, which allows 612 yards per game to FBS teams, and only three teams allow 600 or more yards per game.The Tampa 2 defense that the Orange runs is designed to limit big plays, but Syracuse has consistently given up long touchdown plays in the last two games.“It has to do with habits,” Babers said. “…There’s stretches where guys are doing it exactly right and then all of sudden they have a flashback. And they you say ‘Hey, you did it right three times in a row. Why did you do it wrong the fourth time?’ And it’s like ‘Coach, I don’t know.’ Well that ‘I don’t know’ is that they’re used to doing it a certain way and we got to get them out of the old way.” Comments Published on September 19, 2016 at 12:59 pm Contact Jon: | @jmettuslast_img read more

Lakers’ GM Mitch Kupchak says Aldridge meeting was learning experience

first_imgAnother prominent person besides LaMarcus Aldridge felt unimpressed with the Lakers’ first free agency meeting with him.“We accomplished the part about how much we wanted this player,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a conference call on Thursday. “But I don’t feel the basketball component of it was covered in depth.”Kupchak contended “we didn’t have as much time to talk basketball as we would have liked to” in a two-hour meeting that preceded the Houston Rockets’ presentation. Kupchak added the meeting “wasn’t as intimate a setting as I would have liked.” Aldridge met with a wide range of Lakers’ representatives, including Kupchak, Kobe Bryant, coach Byron Scott, president Jeanie Buss, executive Jim Buss and former Showtime Laker James Worthy. Other front office, business and publicity officials attended as well as representatives with Time Warner Cable SportsNet and AEG. Aldridge had felt the Lakers placed too much focus on branding over X’s and O’s. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I don’t think the meeting was as bad as people heard it was, nor do I think it was as good as we hoped it would be,” Kupchak said. “I would say, ‘Live and learn.’”• Related: Bass, Williams agree to deals with L.A.The Lakers learned their follow-up attempts did little.Kupchak and Scott met with Aldridge again two days later and talked basketball. But Aldridge still left the Portland Trail Blazers for the San Antonio Spurs. The Lakers also whiffed on their other targets in free agency. Greg Monroe chose Milwaukee over the Lakers. DeAndre Jordan initially selected Dallas before returning back to the Clippers. Kupchak conceded it felt “a little unsettling” the Mavericks could then pursue center Roy Hibbert, whom the Lakers agreed to acquire last week from Indiana for a future second-round pick. Kupchak argued the incident set “an uncomfortable precedent” before adding, “I want nothing but the best for DeAndre Jordan.” Kupchak also deferred to the NBA on whether it should reduce the moratorium period before free agents can sign their contracts. center_img Kupchak had other things on his mind. • Related: Lakers summer league: Five things to watchThe Lakers have failed to retain or attract marquee free agents for three consecutive years, including Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Pau Gasol. Yet, Kupchak dismissed how much the Lakers’ presentations played any role.“Your roster has a lot to do with your ability to recruit free agents that are established and maybe looking for a team that can win right away,” Kupchak said. “This is not a roster that an established player would say, ‘I can go there and win a championship next year.”The Lakers finished last season with their worst record in franchise history amid an injury-laden roster, most notably to Bryant. He played 35 games before needing right shoulder surgery in what marked his third consecutive season-ending injury. Although Scott estimated Bryant remains a month away from any shooting or any upper body exercises, the Lakers expect their star player to return for his 20th NBA season fully healthy. The Lakers have three rookies (D’Angelo Russell, Larry Nance Jr., Anthony Brown) and two emerging talents (Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson). • Related: Lakers Q&A with Mark MedinaKupchak said Hibbert partially waived his trade kicker initially worth $2.8 million to accommodate Indiana’s to clear his $15.5 million salary amid a diminished role. The Lakers signed Lou Williams to a three-year, $21 million deal a year after winning the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award in Toronto. They also acquired 10-year NBA veteran forward Brandon Bass. Kupchak added he still has a room exception worth $2.8 million and that Nick Young could still have a role if he follows Scott’s instruction to improve on defense.Kupchak conceded “it’s not a perfect roster,” but can the Lakers make the postseason?“I would say yes,” Kupchak said. “I don’t see why we don’t contend for a playoff spot. But our young players have to grow beyond our years and we have to stay healthy.”That mostly involves Bryant, whom Scott said will meet with him and the Lakers’ training staff in either three or four weeks on how to reduce his workload. Last year, Bryant averaged 22.3 points on a career-low 37.3 percent clip in 36.4 minutes.“We added some veterans that I think will make him happy and some young players that will frustrate him,” Kupchak said of Bryant. “His focal point going into the season is his own conditioning and his own health. I think that has a potential to frustrate him.”Kupchak still expressed optimism about Bryant’s play, though he reiterated his belief Bryant will retire after this season. Then, the Lakers could offer a max contract to two free agents. “We’ll get better at it,” Kupchak said. “Our team will get better. We’ll be more attractive.”last_img read more

Fantasy Baseball Busts: 2019 All-Overrated Team

first_imgOur All-Overrated team reflects the players at each position is most in danger of underperforming their their preseason rankings and average draft position. It is not, however, a list of players you should avoid entirely, so perhaps calling these guys “busts” is a little unfair. Ultimate, it should be used instead as a guide for where to tread carefully, perhaps dropping these players a tier or two and making note of them on your cheat sheet.Watch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZN Top MLB ProspectsCatcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Pitcher | Top 50Reliever: Kenley Jansen, Dodgers. Jansen declined by almost every metric last season and dealt with continued heart problems, which he had offseason surgery to correct but still remain a concern. He’s no longer a sure bet for a sub-3.00 or 40 saves, and there’s no reason for his ADP to be in the top 80.Reliever: Wade Davis, Rockies. There are plenty of red flags and little apparent upside for the 33-year-old right from a fantasy perspective. For the first time since becoming a full-time closer, Davis’ fastball averaged below 94 mph in 2018. His BABIP, meanwhile, stood at an unsustainable .238. Put those things together, consider he’ll again need to pitch at Coors Field, where any decline can be magnified tenfold, and understand you’re probably better off waiting on a closer until later in your draft. These players might have performed above their abilities in 2018 or come with heightened risk of injury. Every one of them seems, for one reason or another, like reaches at the slots they’re being taken. Though most fantasy teams will end up with a couple of red-flag draft picks like the ones below, you should consider balancing those risky selections with higher-floor options.MORE FANTASY BASEBALL: Ultimate 2019 cheat sheet | All-Sleeper Team2019 Fantasy Baseball Busts: All-Overrated TeamCatcher: Yadier Molina, Cardinals. Molina has had two straight huge years at the plate, upping his power numbers while maintaining the solid batting average that has characterized his 15 big league seasons. The improved production coincides with an increased launch angle on his swing, meaning the home runs could be sustainable. But he’s going to turn 37 soon, and at some point playing more than 120 games behind the plate each year is going to catch up to him. It might be worth looking elsewhere if possible rather than get caught holding the bag at a scarce position.First base: Cody Bellinger, Dodgers. Bellinger has enjoyed back-to-back years of seemingly unsustainable fly-ball luck. As a rookie, 25 percent of his fly balls left the yard. Last year, 15 percent left the yard, a mark still above league average. His batted-ball profile, meanwhile, is nothing special, with Statcast grading him in the 55th percentile for hard-hit percentage, 55th percentile for expected slugging percentage, and 25th percentile for expected batting average. So, it would not be surprising for the first baseman, who also has outfield eligibility, to fall short of the 25 home runs he hit in 2018 and disappoint across the board. 2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | Reliever | Top 300Second base: Dee Gordon, Mariners. The trouble with Gordon has always been his subpar plate approach, which minimizes his very best assets. His walk rate was a meager 1.5 percent in 2018 — one of the worst in MLB — and he posted an average exit velocity in the bottom one percent of the league. In the middle of his career, there’s little to indicate his hitting will improve anytime soon, meaning he’ll continue to miss out on the steal opportunities that are his lifeblood as a fantasy asset. For that reason, his top-110 ADP is probably too high.Shortstop: Adalberto Mondesi, Royals. Mondesi is boosted by his eligibility at such a precious position and star performance level in 2018, but he comes with significant red flags. He has very little MLB experience, playing in 147 career games, and he is part of one of the worst offenses in baseball, meaning his RBI and runs scored totals will be limited. While Royals manager Ned Yost has said he’s going to run Mondesi frequently, likely elevating his stolen base tally, it’s difficult to understand why his ADP is ahead of bonafide fantasy studs like Carlos Correa.2019 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | Each teamThird base: Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Blue Jays. Disclaimer: Vlad Jr. looks like he’s absolutely on track to become one of the best hitters in all of baseball. We believe he could wind up delivering an historic rookie campaign. With that said, his ADP of 47 might be a little too high in non-keeper formats, considering he’s expected to be held in the minors for the first few weeks of the season and has never played at the MLB level before. Guys ranked just behind him like Eugenio Suarez and Miguel Andujar are much safer selections who you can wait to pick.Outfielder: Starling Marte, Pirates. It’s tempting to pencil in Marte for another one of his high-steal, high-dinger campaigns considering he’s coming off a career-high 20 home runs to go with 33 stolen bases. A similar showing in 2019 would make his ADP of 41 look like fair value. But Statcast data shows his speed is starting to slip a little, and his power isn’t guaranteed. Proceed with caution here.Outfielder: Wil Myers, Padres. Myers has lasted 90 games in just two of his six MLB seasons, a very poor return for someone with an ADP of around 105. When he’s healthy, he can be a borderline 30/30 threat, but it’s just unclear he can hold up for long while playing in the outfield.Outfielder: A.J. Pollock, Dodgers. Like Myers, it’s hard to know how many games Pollock will be able to play given his extensive injury history. Perhaps more concerning is Pollock only stealing 13 bases last season and his sprint speed dipping from 38th in MLB in 2015 to 138th in ’18. His fantasy value is closely tied to his ability to swipe bags, so further decline there would be catastrophic.PERFECT YOUR DRAFT STRATEGY: Mock draft simulatorPitcher: Luis Severino, Yankees. This has more to do with uncertainty at a high ADP than doubt Severino is a good pitcher. He posted a 5.57 ERA in the second half last year and has generally run hot and cold throughout his career. Even so, the 25-year-old right can lean on a fastball-slider combination that’s as explosive a pairing as any in baseball. Drafting a starting pitcher in the top 40 should be a slam dunk, but Severino comes in perhaps a smidge below that level of assuredness despite his obvious strengths.Pitcher: Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers. Kershaw has not made 30 starts in a season since 2015, with back problems the primary reason for him to miss time. He’s apparently experienced some shoulder soreness in spring training, and it’s fair to wonder whether the soon-to-be 31-year-old lefty is on the brink of a drop-off in on-field performance. We won’t blame you for selecting one of the greatest starting pitchers in modern baseball, but it’s worth being cautious with him moving forward.2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings Tiers, Draft StrategyCatcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | CloserPitcher: Zack Greinke, Diamondbacks. For the first time in his career, 40 percent of batted balls against Greinke were classified as hard hit last season, an ominous sign that all is not well with the righthander. Additionally, his below-average .272 BABIP, abnormally high 80 percent left-on-base rate and a FIP 0.50 points above his ERA should worry prospective fantasy owners. This is no longer the lights-out starter of a few years ago, and despite strong ERAs of late, he likely will not live up to a top-70 ADP.Pitcher: Andrew Heaney, Angels. Last season was a milestone year for Heaney, who managed to stay healthy and start 30 games after previously undergoing Tommy John surgery and battling elbow soreness. But those past ailments remain troubling, particularly because his ADP of 166 comes ahead of several more proven starters. And with a career ERA above 4.00, there’s little incentive to take a risk here.Pitcher: Sonny Gray, Reds. Some fantasy owners will likely try to get cute and take Gray late, but it’s difficult to see the upside. Great American Ball Park is a horrible fit for a pitcher seemingly low on confidence, and even if he does get it somewhat together, his middle-of-the-road strikeout rate will limit his ceiling.last_img read more

NHL free agency 2019: Sharks hold onto rising forward Kevin Labanc

first_imgIn 214 career games with the Sharks, Labanc has recorded 116 points.After losing Joe Pavelski, Joonas Donskoi and Gustav Nyquist to the free agency market, San Jose will likely see Labanc step into a bigger role this season as the top-line right wing alongside Logan Couture and Timo Meier.Given his speed, skating and scoring sense, Labanc will likely continue to thrive and improve on his numbers with more ice time, as he’s proven to be a consistent scorer still in the prime of his career. “Kevin took a big step forward in his production last season and has grown into an important part of our team here in San Jose,” general manager Doug Wilson said in the signing announcement. “He’s always had a dangerous shot but really stepped into a playmaking role for us last season and improved his 200-foot game as well. We think he still has even more potential to tap into and we’re excited to see what he can do with an elevated role with this talented group.”NHL free agency tracker: Complete list of all 31 teams’ UFAs and RFAsThe Staten Island, New York, native was also instrumental in San Jose’s run to the Western Conference Final; his most notable performance came in the team’s Game 7 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights, when he assisted on all three of the Sharks’ third-period power-play goals and scored the go-ahead power-play tally during a five minute major penalty on Cody Eakin. The San Jose Sharks know they have a rising top player in Kevin Labanc, and they’ll hang onto him for at least one more year as they signed him to a one-year extension on Monday.Labanc, 23, had a strong showing for the Sharks this season, putting up a career-high 17 goals and 56 points (20 of them coming on the power play) in the final year of his entry-level contract. He has continued to improve on his numbers each season he’s been in the NHL; he had 20 points in his rookie season and doubled that point total in 2017-18 before finally hitting the 50-point mark in the 2018-19 campaign.last_img read more
