This rivalry had cooled down since that No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown in 2008. It’s the first game between the programs on either end of Tennessee since January 2013.These Vols came in with a big advantage in both size and experience with all five starters back from the team that shared the Southeastern Conference regular-season title last year. They trailed only once at 3-2 within the first minute on a trio of free throws by Harris.With Tennessee hitting its first five shots, including a trio of 3-pointers, the Vols took a 15-5 lead on Schofield’s 3 with 16:21 left. Tennessee led 50-35 at halftime. Hardaway said the Tigers worked all week to start fast.“Hey, man, that’s where they’re ranked No. 3 in the nation,” Hardaway said. “And we’ve just got to continue to work hard. The second half was more what we wanted, we just couldn’t put two halves together, which led us to lose by 10. When you give up 102 points on your own home floor, you’re not going to win too many of those.”The Tigers pulled to 63-56 when Antwann Jones’ 3 capped eight straight. Schofield scored the next five for Tennessee. Davenport did his best to rally Memphis but couldn’t get the Tigers closer than eight despite hitting 10 of 12 shots.BIG PICTURETennessee: The Vols finally have a true road game on their resume with the arena filled with lots of Memphis blue. Barnes wasn’t happy with his Vols turning it over 18 times, which Memphis turned into 14 points.Memphis: Hardaway needs more time, and his 2019 recruiting class is led by James Wiseman. But he had the Tigers racing up the floor every chance they got in transition. Hardaway’s halftime adjustments were evident when the Tigers hit as many shots (10) within the first nine minutes as the entire first half.CHIPPY FINISHWith 47.8 seconds left during a timeout, officials gave double-technicals to Bone and Memphis guard Alex Lomax. Hardaway said Bone said something disrespectful, setting off a sequence that included the Memphis coach not getting an answer about why the Vols didn’t get a technical for leaving the bench. Schofield scored 20 of his 29 points in the second half and added 11 rebounds as third-ranked Tennessee beat Memphis 102-92 Saturday to snap a three-game skid to the in-state rival.“We wanted to come in and make a statement for our university here on their floor,” Schofield said with a smile. “And I think we did that, so you know the crowd was chirping a little bit. So I just had to let them know. UT. UT still on top.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe Volunteers (8-1) avoided any letdown after a weeklong layoff for finals since upsetting then-No. 1 ranked Gonzaga last weekend in Phoenix.

It might be a coincidence, but the teams with the four fastest cars in qualifying for Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 used Toyotas last year. Marlboro Team Penske drivers Sam Hornish Jr. and Helio Castroneves have the top two starting spots in the race. Chip Ganassi’s Team Target drivers Dan Wheldon and Scott Dixon are third and fourth. This year every team in the race is using a Honda engine, produced and tested at Honda Performance Development in Santa Clarita. It seems to have benefited the Penske and Ganassi drivers the most. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Hornish, who won the pole with a four-lap average speed of 228.985 mph, said the new engine program has made a significant difference at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “I think it’s been a big part of the success,” said Hornish, driver of the No. 6 entry for Team Penske. “But I think the old engine program has a lot to do with it, too. We were not far off with the Toyota, but we could never get close enough to where at every track we felt like we were competitive.” Hornish won two races last year with Toyota power, the most of any Toyota driver in the Indy Racing League. But Toyotas only won four of the 17 IRL races last year while Honda drivers won 12. Hornish said there were certain tracks where the Toyotas could compete with the Hondas, but there weren’t that many. “It tended to be the handling tracks where we seemed to do a lot better at,” Hornish said. “I think we worked on the handling of the car, downforce, drag, trying to minimize the drag on the car, trying to make the cars better. I think everybody worked together real hard to be able to make them better.” Despite the struggles with Toyotas, Hornish said his team benefited from the adversity. “I think that is what has allowed us to be as competitive as we are now, the fact of how hard we’ve worked over the past couple years,” Hornish said. “It’s Team Penske. They tend to know how to get things done as far as the team is concerned. I think that’s a big part of it, as well.” This will be Hornish’s seventh Indy 500 start. His best finish came in 2001 when he finished 14th driving for Panther Racing. This is the first time he has won the pole for the Indianapolis 500. “The big thing for me to look at it, I’ve got a great shot at it,” Hornish said. “We’ve been quick all month. But it is a long race. Like I said, it’s not always the fastest guy that wins. How do we get ourselves past that point and figure out how to make the least amount of mistakes. Pit stops have to be right. We have to make good decisions in the car. I have to make good decisions. You need to have a little bit of luck on your side as well.” Valencia’s Bryan Herta will be starting 16th in the Indianapolis 500, his best position in five races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In his career, Herta, a Hart High of Newhall graduate, has posted three top 10s and has finished in the top five the past two years. Last year, he was third, his best finish in the Indianapolis 500. “There’s so much history and tradition with the Indianapolis 500,” said Herta, driver of the No. 7 entry for Andretti Green Racing. “I think more than any other race, it’s probably the only single-race victory that means as much or more than a championship. I think it’s bigger than winning a Daytona 500, bigger than winning Monaco in F1.” Herta has won two races in his IRL career, but none would be bigger than winning the Indy 500. “If you were going to win one race in your entire career, I think most drivers, if you were honest, this would be the one you’d want to win,” Herta said. NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series: Ron Hornaday Jr. is coming off his best finish of the season and heading to a track where he won the pole last year. Hornaday, driver of the No. 33 Chevrolet Silverado for Kevin Harvick Inc. on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, finished fifth at Lowe’s Motor Speedway last Friday night. It was his first top-five finish of the year and moved the former Saugus Speedway champ from Palmdale up to 16th in the Truck Series standings. He won the pole at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway in Ohio, site of tonight’s race, and finished 11th last year. Two drivers with familiar names will be making their Truck Series debuts in the Mansfield race. Former Boston Red Sox outfielder Mike Greenwell and Champ Car veteran Michel Jourdain Jr. are entered in the Mansfield race. Greenwell has been racing Late Models in Florida and has won 37 races. He will be driving the No. 08 Chevrolet Silverado. Jourdain will be driving the No. 50 Ford F-150 for Roush Racing at Mansfield.

A man who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a female at a caravan at Kinnegar, Rathmullan has been jailed for one year.The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim, admitted the assault which happened on June 11th, 2016. Sentencing the man, Judge John Aylmer said the man has destroyed his family relationship irreversibly and particularly with the victim.He added that the man was considered a good family man but did have an issue with alcohol.Retired detective Garda Bosco Gallagher told Letterkenny Circuit Court he had arrested the man after the female told another family member about the assault.The court heard how the accused and the victim were lying on a bed in the caravan when the man touched her inappropriately.The female said she initially pretended to be asleep but as the man continued to touch her she jumped off the bed.He apologised but then asked her to come and lie down beside him again but she refused.The court was told that the man had been already punished by his family who wanted nothing to do with him since the incident.His barrister added that his client was deeply ashamed of what he had done and that he is experiencing daily punishment on a daily basis inside his own head and within his family dynamic.The man acknowledged that the sexual assault had happened and that he is sorry about it, added his barrister.Judge Aylmer said he put the offence in the mid-range of such offences and that it merited a sentence of three years in jail.However, he said the man had pleaded guilty at an early stage and is ashamed of his actions and will now appear on the sex offenders register.He sentenced the man to two years in prison but suspended the final 12 months of the sentence and ordered him to abstain from alcohol and drugs and to keep appointments with the probation services.Man jailed for year after sexual assault in caravan was last modified: December 13th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Another changing of the guard took place at Paramount Pictures where longtime studio chief Sherry Lansing retired at the start of the year and was succeeded by Brad Grey who has since replaced several top executives with his own team, which includes studio President Gail Berman, former president of programming at the Fox television network. Ironically, since Grey took over, Paramount has had some of its biggest hits in years: “War of the Worlds,” and “The Longest Yard,” both produced under Lansing’s regime. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, one of Hollywood’s most storied movie studios, ended its days as an independent company in 2005 and MGM became a unit of Sony Corp. Major change also took place at Miramax Films as the Weinstein brothers severed ties with parent company Disney after a few tumultuous final years. The Weinsteins began their own company while a scaled-down Miramax remains a specialty division of Disney, which kept the division’s valuable 800-film library. — Greg Hernandez, (818) 713-3758 email@example.comWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake While new-release films remained hot commodities on DVD, the biggest growth area in 2005 was TV shows on DVD. With slimmer packaging, lower prices and more titles than ever, fans are scooping up boxed sets of current shows like “Lost,” “Desperate Housewives” and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” as well as such older favorites as “I Love Lucy,” “M*A*S*H” and “Roseanne.” As for the current television season, CBS has continued to dominate in the overall ratings with its three “CSI” shows and other hit dramas like “Without a Trace,” “NCIS,” and “Ghost Whisperer.” But ABC has continued its ratings ascent with such water-cooler hits as “Housewives,” “Lost,” “Grey’s Anatomy” “Dancing with the Stars,” and “Commander in Chief.” Behind the scenes, it was a year of major change among the executive ranks led by the Sept. 30 retirement of Michael D. Eisner as chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Co. after more than two decades in the job. Eisner had been under fire during the latter years of his reign from such foes as former second-in-commands Jeffrey Katzenberg and Michael Ovitz, Pixar CEO Steve Jobs, Miramax Films founders Harvey and Bob Weinstein and former Disney board member Roy Disney, nephew of the company’s founder. But Eisner left Disney in a stable place despite the lack of blockbuster films in 2005 and his successor, Robert Iger, has managed to resume negotiations with Pixar to continue its lucrative film distribution partnership with Disney. Frustrated with Eisner, Jobs had cut off talks in early 2004. In a year that offered up the final installment of “Star Wars” and a darker chapter in the “Harry Potter” series, movie fans showed that they are still willing to line up at the megaplex for a big-event picture. But as 2005 dragged on and ambitious fare like “Kingdom of Heaven,” “Stealth” and “The Island” bombed and far too many other films failed to cross the $100 million mark domestically, it became increasingly clear that the moviegoing public had become a far more choosier bunch. They embraced “War of the Worlds,” “Batman Begins,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Wedding Crashers” over the summer but attendance between the first weekend in May and Labor Day weekend was down by nearly 12 percent compared with 2004. In contrast, sales of DVD titles continued to grow, but even that was at a slower pace than at any time since the format’s inception in 1997. Still, with only an average 4-6 month window between a film’s theatrical and DVD debuts, consumers could more easily opt to wait to see a film with lukewarm buzz in the comfort of their own home rather than shell out the price of movie tickets.

During Heritage Month, Cape Town’s Castle of Good Hope launched a legacy project that highlights 350 years of South African history, from colonial and indigenous perspectives.The Castle of Good Hope, South Africa’s oldest building, has seen its fair share of history, dating back to the 17th century. (Image: Castle of Good Hope)CD AndersonThe project is a collaborative effort between the castle and the Ministry of Defence and Department of Military Veterans to encourage young people to have an interest in and understanding of South African history.Completed in 1679, the Castle of Good Hope is South Africa’s oldest surviving building. Over the years, it has been an important landmark for civilian and military life in the city, as well as an ongoing testament to more than 350 years of tumultuous but significant South African history. The building is currently a cultural hub, offering art and cultural exhibitions, guided historical tours and the curation of historically significant artefacts.At the official launch of the legacy project on 22 September 2017, castle management CEO Calvyn Gilfellan announced that detailed timeline murals depicting the history of the castle and South Africa would be installed at almost 300 South African schools, taking these important events, people and aspects of the country’s history to young people directly and offering a contextual appreciation of how South Africa developed as a country over 350 years.Statues of famous prisoners amaHlubi king Langalibalele‚ Zulu king Cetshwayo‚ Bapedi king Sekhukhune and Khoisan freedom fighter Doman at the Castle of Good Hope. (Image: Castle of Good Hope)The original timeline mural will be exhibited at the castle itself, joining other popular exhibits that were set up during the castle’s 350th anniversary commemorations at the end of 2016. These include the Department of Military Veterans’ Centre for Memory, Healing and Learning and a set of statues depicting amaZulu, amaHlubi and BaPedi kings Cetshwayo, Langalibalele and Sekhukhune, as well as Doman, a 17th century Khoisan resistance leader, all of whom were once imprisoned at the castle.Also part of the project is an online interactive tour of the castle and its history: a 360° view that takes anyone in the world on a virtual tour around the buildings while giving them a history lesson along the way.Watch an introduction video to the Castle’s 350 Years in 360 Degrees exhibit here: Speaking to SABC News at the launch of the project, acting director-general in the Department of Military Veterans Max Ozinsky said it was important to memorialise the often overlooked history of the castle. “The colonial history of the castle and the country is well known… [but it is often forgotten] that many leaders of resistance were [imprisoned] at the castle… and many important military decisions regarding the country’s colonial wars were made in these rooms.”The school mural project, Ozinsky added, was aimed “to show South African history from all sides”. The timeline not only highlights the conflict between colonial rule and indigenous resistance, but also times of collaboration and co-operation between these forces for the good of the country.The installation of the murals in schools will be handled by SchoolMedia, a marketing company that provides positive brand marketing to South Africa’s young people. It is the brainchild of young South African entrepreneur Khethi Ngwenya.At the launch at the castle, Ngwenya told SABC News that during research for the mural’s timeline, collaborators realised just how much of the country’s early history was missing from the existing history curriculum taught in South African schools, but he added that hopefully highlighting these historical events and the important players would change that.For more information on the Castle of Good Hope and its exhibits, visit the website here.Source: SABC News, Castle of Good Hope, South African History OnlineWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
