The Seaver Plaza Food Court on the Health Sciences Campus opened last week after four months of construction, which had led HSC students and visitors to seek other dining options such as food trucks, students said.Options galore · Students and visitors at the Health Sciences Campus can now dine at the newly renovated Seaver Plaza, which holds a Starbucks, Panda Express, Poquito Mas and the Marketplace. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily Trojan “Before this opened, there were only food trucks or the hospital cafeteria,” said Calvin Cha, a first-year graduate student studying pharmacy. “I was pretty excited about the renovation when I heard that we were getting Panda [Express].”In addition to Panda Express, the food court now offers Starbucks, Poquito Mas and the Marketplace, which stocks convenience goods and snacks such as fruit and sandwiches.According to Kris Klinger, director of USC Hospitality, the decision to add these restaurants was to offer more and better choices for dining.“In the past there were no branded concepts. There were not a lot of good options. Now we have better options than we had in the past,” Klinger said.Phil Turner, assistant manager of the Starbucks in Seaver Plaza, said he is impressed with the increased quality that customers can expect from the renovated food court.“I think the brand standards really promote a more consistent dining experience,” Turner said. “The biggest changes are the updated recipes and product selection.”For hospital staff, faculty and students who frequent the food court, these healthier options are welcome, they said. Still, students without cars, like Cha, said they feel limited.“Honestly, it’s one of the only places to eat at this school. There’s nothing within walking distance [of HSC],” Cha said.HSC plans to celebrate the food court’s opening in the coming weeks.Compared to the old Seaver Food Court and limited options students had before students said, this Seaver Food court is much improved.“This is a pretty good place to eat,” said Kei-Cheuk Ng, a graduate student studying pharmacy.
Musical training in childhood can help one develop better language processing skills, reports a news item on EurekAlert. Scientists at Northwestern University found that English-speaking adults who had musical training were better able to track intonations of Chinese tonal words than those who did not have such training. The study contradicted an evolutionary assumption about the brain stem. “An old structure from an evolutionary standpoint, the brainstem once was thought to only play a passive role in auditory processing,” the article states. “We’ve found that by playing music — an action thought of as a function of the neocortex — a person may actually be tuning the brainstem,” said Nina Kraus, one of the team publishing their results in Nature Neuroscience. “This suggests that the relationship between the brainstem and neocortex is a dynamic and reciprocal one and tells us that our basic sensory circuitry is more malleable than we previously thought.”Do your brain a favor and learn to appreciate good music. Don’t deprive children of the opportunity to learn how to develop a God-given capacity that enriches life. (High-decibel repetitious raunchy cacophony excluded.) Did you notice that evolutionary theory failed another prediction again? (03/08/2007).(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
mike melanson Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Netflix, the streaming movie and DVD subscription service, announced this morning that it would no longer allow users to add DVDs to their queue from the device they use to watch instantly. Netflix offers streaming-only content to a number of devices – from gaming consoles to embedded TVs to smartphones and tablets – and previously gave users the ability to browse content and flag it to be shipped as a DVD when it was unavailable for streaming. According to Jamie Odell, director of product management at Netflix, the company is removing this functionality “so we can concentrate on offering you the titles that are available to watch instantly.”“Providing the option to add a DVD to your Queue from a streaming device complicates the instant watching experience and ties up resources that are better used to improve the overall streaming functionality,” writes Odell. “This change does not impact the Netflix Web site, where most members manage their DVD Queues.”As PaidContent points out, users are not happy with the change and the backlash has been prompt, with nearly 200 comments on the announcement in the past couple hours. Complaints vary from claims that Netflix is trying to slowly kill its DVD subscription service by raising the prices while removing the ability to order DVDs to questions of exactly what resources Netflix is trying to free up.PaidContent’s Andrew Wallenstein warns that “Netflix needs to proceed with great caution in how it unwinds its disc business or risk losing a chunk of the subscribers on which it built its booming business.”We spoke with Steve Swasey, vice president of corporate communications with Netflix, who told us that Netflix is on more than 250 devices. Those with the “Add to Queue” functionality that were used for streaming-only purposes would no longer have the functionality. The long and short of it seems to be that the feature will now be accessible solely through the Netflix website.As for resources, Swasey said that it was an issue of time, effort and engineers, not necessarily server load or anything like that. Moreover, Swasey said that it was a basic issue of where Netflix wanted to focus. “We’re spending more on streaming content than on DVD,” he said. “As we add more countries, they will be streaming only. We simplified the process for streaming by taking away one process that not many people used.”While the majority of voices in the comments seemed outraged by the move, Swasey insisted that “it’s not affecting a majority” and that the reason most people watch streaming movies is to watch the movies, not to order DVDs.

About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Napoli boss Ancelotti defends players after Cagliari shockby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNapoli boss Carlo Ancelotti was furious after defeat to Cagliari.A late Lucas Castro header proved the winner.“We are very disappointed with the result, but it was not a bad performance at all,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.“We allowed Cagliari very few counter-attacks, hardly any. At the end, we were taken by surprise, as we stopped to complain about a foul on Fernando Llorente and allowed ourselves to be caught cold off balance.“Napoli created chances, forced saves, hit the upright twice, so it was overall a decent performance. Cagliari focused entirely on defence and closing down all the spaces.“It was paradoxical that (Kalidou) Koulibaly was sent off for saying something to the referee and we had a series of yellow cards, when if there was a team that was playing rough, it was Cagliari.“I won’t have this overall performance reduced to once incident. Napoli played very well. We could’ve done better, but that’s always true in every situation. I do not judge games only on the results and I won’t accept that attitude.“Seeing as you are so desperate to find something to criticise, fine, I’ll say we are sobbing when looking at the table. Happy? I am not remotely worried, not at all.”
Ohio State redshirt senior guard Kam Williams (15) celebrates after making a 3-pointer in the first half of the game against Rutgers on Feb. 20. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorIn Ohio State’s last home game of the season seniors Kam Williams and Jae’Sean Tate led the Buckeyes to a win on their senior night, for their last game in the Scarlet and Gray at the Schottenstein Center.No. 16 Ohio State (22-7, 14-3 Big Ten) got off to a slow start but dominated Rutgers (13-16, 3-14 Big Ten) 79-52 on Tuesday night to get back on track after losing their last two games on the road to Penn State and Michigan.“That was part of the perfect storm,” redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop said. “Part of just because we came off a couple losses, but then it being senior night, we obviously wanted to get the win against a good Rutgers team and kind of send everybody off.” Williams finished the game with 13 points, including 3-for-5 from beyond the arc, while Tate finished with nine points and 10 rebounds. Bates-Diop was held quiet, scoring a season-low six points with eight rebounds. Rutgers closed out the first half on a 16-2 run to bring the score to 32-27. The run by the Scarlet Knights held the Buckeyes to no points in the last 2:19 minutes of the half. However, the Buckeyes started the second half on an 18-2 run and were able to provide some separation from the Scarlet Knights.“They got some offensive rebounds, got in transition a little bit and we just weren’t executing. It happened so fast, they went on a 16-2 run to end the half and that was huge. We knew that they’ve come back on teams and made it a really competitive game,” redshirt senior guard Andrew Dakich said. “For us to get that start in the second half was crucial and C.J. Jackson got us going.”Jackson led all players with 18 points and was 8-for-12 from the field. Junior guard Corey Sanders led Rutgers with 12 points and was 6-for-12 from the field.“I thought our guys made some good plays in transition. C.J. obviously had a couple of really nice floaters. He’s got to continue to drive and look to score,” coach Holtmann said. “We have to play tougher and with more force across the board. When teams are trying to big boy us and being really physical you gotta make them pay by getting paint touches and using your dribble in.”Just under two minutes into the game the Buckeyes started a 10-0 run highlighted by back to back 3-pointers by Williams.After Ohio State’s run early in the first half, Rutgers junior guard Corey Sanders slammed a dunk to bring it to a five-point game but the Buckeyes responded with another 6-1 run to pull ahead 10 points.The Scarlet Knights hit their first 3 of the night with just 5:04 remaining in the first half. Rutgers finished the game shooting just 17 percent from 3 compared to 39 percent from the Buckeyes. Rutgers was 2-for-12 from behind the arc while Ohio State attempted almost double the amount of 3s and finished 9-for-23.Overall, the Buckeyes shot 59 percent from the field compared to the Scarlet Knights 41 percent. However, the major divide came in the second half when Rutgers shot only 39 percent from the field and Ohio State made 66 percent of its shots.
Matt Macey has become the second goalkeeper to sign for Argyle this summer from Premier League clubs as he joins them on loan from Arsenal.Macey who launched his career at Bristol Rovers, as well as previous experience of Home Park, said as quoted in Plymouth Argyle club website that:“I grew up playing for Bristol Rovers and warmed up on the [Home Park] pitch with Accrington. I played against them for Luton a couple of years ago. I know the stadium I know what the fans are like as well.”He added:“That was out of nowhere because I came from the under 18s at Bristol Rovers. When you get interest from a Premier League club you sort of dismiss it and think it’s a joke but it came through!“[Playing at the Emirates is] the highlight of my career so far. Before that I had a couple of loan spells; I think it is time now to have another spell, play some games and try to kick on again in my career.”New Plymouth Argyle full-back approves deal on Wedding day Henry Ikenna Ugwu – June 29, 2018 They say one who finds a wife, finds a good thing and full-back Joe Riley can attest to that as he can now honeymoon…“I had a spell at Luton which was great; the next step is League One. The opportunities have come around quite quickly for me and there’s no denying that I wanted to come down here and test myself at this level and at such a great club.”He stressed that his impressive performance at Arsenal is enough file in for a season at Home Park“I think in the modern game, you need to be tall you need to move well. Especially at Arsenal they put a lot of emphasis on being able to move well. Those are physical traits I am lucky to have.“It would have been ideal if I had more time or games with the boys, but I’ve done it before where I have just come straight into a team. I have a whole week’s training so I’ll be working hard this week.”
The German competition does not want to follow the steps set forward by Spain’s La Liga, and managing director Christian Seifert has ruled out a similar moveAfter Spain’s La Liga tournament announced they will play at least one official match in the United States, most people expected other leagues to come thru.The English Premier League once toyed with this idea, but so far there has not been anything official.But one league has firmly said no.German Bundesliga managing director Christian Seifert talked to Die Zeit as reported by Goal.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We will never play a league game outside of Germany. That’s a limit we will not cross,” he said.“An official league game, which is about points that decide promotion, relegation or participation in the international competition, abroad, is, in my view, a lack of respect for their fans, the players and in the end also Major League Soccer.”“You do not need help from overseas to promote football in this way,” Seifert added.“You can rule out that there are as many kick-off times as there are games, as is the case in Spain.”

A lot of pass and move. We have good players, so that’s why we are playing this great football.”Hazard has managed eight goals and three assists in just 10 appearances across all competitions under Sarri this season at Chelsea.
