No. 1 USC seeks to continue strong play

first_imgAfter a freshman campaign in which driver Nikola Vavic led USC with 49 goals, it was natural to heap lofty expectations on the sophomore. Thus far, the sophomore has tallied 25 goals with only three regular season games remaining and eight games in total if USC should advance to the NCAA finals as it did a year ago.Though Vavic has not found the back of the net as frequently as he did last season, he is beginning to heat up on the score sheet, too, burying eight goals in his last two games.Lethal · Sophomore driver Nikola Vavic has notched 25 goals this year and is one of many offensive weapons for USC’s balanced scoring atttack. – Chris Roman | Daily TrojanWith Vavic’s recent scoring surge bolstering the offense, the No. 1 USC men’s water polo team (17-2, 6-0) will look to extend its eight-game winning streak in two matches this weekend. On Friday at the McDonald’s Swim Stadium, the Trojans will host No. 13 Concordia (29-4) at 5 p.m. for its final regular season home game, hoping to close out an undefeated season at home. Saturday, USC will travel up north to face No. 7 Pacific (11-10, 1-4) in an MPSF matchup.“With Nikola, his goal is usually to pass first and that’s a good thing, but if you always look to pass first, you’re going to miss some good opportunities,” USC coach Jovan Vavic said. “It was good to see in these two games that he was taking shots, and we need him, as the season goes on, to score goals and be a top threat for us.”Collegiate water polo is notoriously top-heavy, with only a few upsets of top-five programs each season. Despite this reality, Jovan Vavic insists Concordia — a team USC beat 15-7 last season in its first ever match — is underrated and could challenge USC provided the Trojans are not focused.“Concordia has three good outside shooters and one strong two-meter man,” Jovan Vavic said. “Concordia beat Santa Barbara at Santa Barbara, and they only lost to Pacific by one goal. So Concordia is one of those teams that can surprise you.”The marquee match-up of the weekend, however, remains the game against Pacific. The Tigers are 1-4 in MPSF play following a gut-wrenching 13-12 overtime loss to powerhouse No. 1 UCLA and a 9-8 upset win over No. 5 Santa Barbara.“[Pacific and Concordia] are both very similar,” Nikola Vavic said. “Both teams have quite a few European players who are good shooters. Pacific has big strong two-meter men.”Sophomore attacker Balazs Erdelyi and senior attacker Tom Koning pace Pacific with 45 and 42 goals, respectively. In the cage, Pacific goalie Alex Malkis posts an average of 9.9 saves per game.Ultimately, USC hopes it continues to peak at the right time, especially in advance of the upcoming titanic match with UCLA.“It seems to me that every game we’re doing something better than in the game before,” Jovan Vavic said. “Overall, we are clicking at the right time.”last_img read more

Today’s MLB DFS Picks: Advice, strategy for Friday’s DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy baseball contests

first_imgCJ. Realmuto (R)[email protected] 7:05S. Alcantara (R)$4200$3100$15UPGRADE Today’s MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Friday, June 21SP: Trevor Bauer, Indians vs. Tigers. It has been an up and down season for Bauer, but he just tossed a shutout against the Tigers in his most recent outing and Detroit still stinks. He is the obvious pivot off of Chris Sale, and I can see it happening.C: Josh Phegley, A’s vs. Rays. The Rays are going with the “opener” tonight, but southpaw Jalen Beeks is slated to take the mound and pitch the middle innings. Against lefties this season, Phegley is hitting .348 with an OPS of 1.034.MORE FRIDAY MLB: SP rankings1B: Freddie Freeman, Braves @ Nationals. Freeman wears out Strasburg, hitting .340 (17-for-50) with five doubles, four home runs and 16 RBIs against him. Freeman is on pace to have the best season of his career, and it seems unlikely many would look to stack against Strasburg.2B: Jose Altuve, Astros @ Yankees. Altuve is 9-for-21 with two home runs in his career off James Paxton. He has always hit lefties well, and that has held true this season, as he owns a .333 average with an OPS of 1.129 against southpaws. This is probably the cheapest we will see Altuve for a long time.SS: Elvis Andrus, Rangers vs. White Sox. I think nothing of Reynaldo Lopez, so stacking the Rangers will be something I definitely take a look at tonight, especially with this game being played in Texas. Andrus has been very steady this season and is another player with home run and stolen base upside.3B: Yoan Moncada, White Sox @ Rangers. We get Moncada hitting from the left side tonight, which is what we are looking for, as he is hitting .314 with all 12 of his home runs and an OPS of .950 against RHPs. I love the ballpark shift to Texas, as well. OF: Tommy Pham, Rays @ A’s. Pham is hitting .400 over the past week and .304 during the month of June. He is rolling right now and has a very nice price tag. I don’t see much ownership here either, which makes for a nice GPP and cash games play.For more player recommendations and analysis, become a Fantasy Alarm subscriber today!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Pos PlayerMatchupOpp. SPDKFDY!

Real Estate Planning and Development Top Port’s 2016 Community Investments

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The Port of Olympia  Investments in Port-owned real estate in Tumwater and Olympia are among the major projects in the 2016 budget approved by the Commission on Nov. 23rd. Also included in the budget are funds for the construction of a fuel dock at Swantown Marina.The master planning process for the Port’s Tumwater properties began in early 2015 and is expected to be completed in first quarter 2016. At that time, the Port will have the information necessary to guide future growth of New Market Industrial Campus and Tumwater Town Center. These areas comprise over 500 acres and may be developed for commercial, industrial or other uses.Key partners on this project include City of Tumwater and contractors Shea Carr Jewel (SCJ) Alliance and Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC). SCJ has studied the land’s physical and environmental characteristics related to development and TRPC has been leading a public process to learn community preferences for the area.The repurposing of Tumwater Town Center aligns with the work citizens did at the public meetings for the master planning process. Work will begin in 2016 to bring these buildings up to date and create an attractive campus for businesses, customers and employees.The master planning process for the remaining Port Peninsula properties begins in 2016. This will include primarily undeveloped real estate in the East Bay, Swantown and NorthPoint districts. It will also include a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Port Peninsula.The proposed fuel dock at Swantown Marina is currently in the environmental review and permitting processes which could be concluded in spring 2016. Once all permits have been granted, staff will ask the Commission for permission to bid construction of the project. This is the decision point for the Commission.Commission President George Barner said that the budget itself is a plan and is not the final say on the larger projects.“For example,” said Barner, the budget includes funds to construct the fuel dock. But the Commission must first approve the Port’s going out for a construction bid. That is the point where the Commission decides whether or not to go forward with the project.”The Commission approved the Port’s 2016 tax levy which increased to include new construction. To the average Thurston County property owner, this will result in an annual increase in Port tax of 52 cents.last_img read more

Richard Maser – Designing A Better World

first_imgBy Gretchen C. Van BenthuysenLike a lot of college students, Richard M. Maser worked various jobs to earn money to help pay the bills.He didn’t realize it then, but he was laying the groundwork for becoming an entrepreneur who today is the founder, president and CEO of Maser Consulting, a Red Bank-based engineering firm with more than 600 employees and 21 offices along the east coast from New York to Florida, plus New Mexico.His firm specializes in private and public site development; and municipal, traffic and land surveying.As he grew his business he also specialized in keeping his people happy and productive so they stayed – as many do – for 20 or 30 years.“You have to understand people’s personalities and I credit the many jobs I’ve had for that,” he said during a recent interview at his headquarters on Newman Springs Road. “In college I worked for UPS loading trucks, I managed a pool hall, I delivered oil to houses and apartment buildings, I picked up flowers at Newark Airport.“So I dealt with a lot of people and had a lot of different bosses,” he said. “That taught me how to interact with people.“We do that here. We do motivational value training with staff,” he explained. “You can’t have the same approach to talking to everybody. You have to adjust your style depending on the other person. One size doesn’t fit everybody.”Growing up in Newark as the second oldest of five children also helped him learn how to play well with others. It certainly taught him a strong work ethic, Maser said.“My father was a fire captain in Newark, a hard-working blue collar man who always had a part-time job,” he said. “My Mom had a part- time job at S. Klein (on the Square) in Newark, but mostly she was a stay-at-home mom and we were a handful.”He spent his summers at his grandparents’ bungalow in the Leonardo section of Middletown and one of his high school jobs was clerking at the local Foodtown.So it seemed fitting that Philip J. Scaduto, vice president of Food Circus Super Markets which owns area Foodtowns, nominated Maser for the 43rd Joshua Huddy Distinguished Citizen Award that he accepted Nov. 5 at a dinner attended by 270 people at Trump National Golf Club in Colts Neck.“I always looked on this award as the greatest award any individual can get in Monmouth County,” said Scaduto, who received the award last year. “It’s very desirable and you’re lucky to receive it.“Richard is an all-around great guy who’s a community advocate and does a lot for a lot of charities. He’s an all-around great guy, and very deserving.”The event raised at least $295,000, which will be used by the Boy Scouts for programming and maintaining local camps, said William P. Montanaro, director of development and marketing.Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), who has known Maser for about 30 years, presented the award to his friend. Kyrillos also is a previous award winner. He said their children grew up together. (Maser, twice divorced, is the father of Elizabeth, 24, Emily, 21, and Richard 19.)“Although he wasn’t a Boy Scout, he exemplifies all the attributes of a great Boy Scout,” Kyrillos said. “He’s a very impressive businessman who owns one of the largest engineering companies in the state that he started from scratch.”Maser graduated in 1973 from the Newark College of Engineering, now a part of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, he said. During summer breaks, he worked at T&M Associates, Middletown, first as a surveyor then an inspector. After graduation he was offered a job and he took it. Four years later he moved to Shoor DePalma, another local firm.He learned a lot at both firms, he said but was frustrated and decided to start his own company in 1984 with $84,000 he had left after his divorce. He opened an office in a small house on Main Street in Marlboro and lived on the second floor. Friends referred clients to him, former colleagues worked part-time for him.“One of the things I always wanted, philosophy-wise, was to balance private sector land development (parking lots, grading, drainage) and public sector municipal work (roads, parks, water towers for towns),” Maser explained, so that when one of those areas took a downturn – such as the residential market in the late ‘80s – he had government work to keep him afloat.His next milestone was in 1998 when he fired his No. 2 man over philosophical differences just in time to take advantage of the boom in his industry in the early 2000s, he said.And here’s where that ability to read people became a really important advantage.“Since then I’ve attracted a lot of positive people from different geographic locations, different skill sets, and built my business around a lot of strategic hires,” Maser said.That’s how he ended up with an office in Albuquerque. As part of the firm’s business plan, a decision was made to invest $1.5 million in geospatial survey technology, including Mobile LiDAR laser scanning equipment. This cutting-edge technology can be mounted on a vehicle or train and scan everything in its path to produce a high definition map that is stored in the cloud.The scanned data contains millions of points of highly accurate information used for mapping roadway and railway features and assets such as tunnel clearances, lighting fixtures, manholes, and intersections.“We wanted to know who was the best person who does this type of work. And that person happened to live in Albuquerque,” Maser said. “We bought the equipment, but first made sure he was on board.”Maser said he didn’t even ask the guy to move for the job.“One thing you learn is anyone who moves out West never moves back East,” he said with a laugh.“We now use the equipment all over the country,” he said.Maser is sincere when he credits his success to the people he hired.“It’s not anywhere near all about me. It’s really the team I’ve developed,” he said. “We have 60-plus shareholders that come from diverse backgrounds – women, surveyors, scientists, engineers – it’s a diversified group and that allows for a lot of input from different viewpoints and that makes us successful.”Maser also donates to and sits on the board of local charities and nonprofit groups, but never more than two at a time so he can give them the attention they need.Take Lunch Break of Red Bank, which provides food, clothing and services to community members in need.“I passed their building every day on my way to work and saw regular people walking in who needed help. It just looked like a worthy cause to me.”He couldn’t join their board, but his company is doing pro bono survey work for a new building in Shrewsbury.However, Maser recently joined the board at The Arc of Monmouth, for people with mental and physical disabilities. At the suggestion of his fiancé Debbie Parker, he hired an Arc client to do office scanning. It worked out so well, he said, he plans to expand the program to other offices.Maser, now 66, said he keeps promising his fiancé he will slow down from 55 to 40 hours a week.“That’s like retirement to me,” he jokes, adding his only hobby is boating. “I enjoy what I do. Maybe we’ll just take more vacations.”last_img read more

Puppet Labs Takes $30 Million VMware Investment – Some Strings Attached?

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Matt Asay Having recently spun out its developer-focused technology into Pivotal Labs, VMware is back at the DevOps table with a $30 million investment in Puppet Labs, a leading open-source vendor of cloud automation tools.  The investment also comes with a partnership whereby the two companies will “work together towards more extensive automation and orchestration across infrastructure and application elements for VMware-based private and public clouds, physical infrastructures, OpenStack and Amazon Web Services.” But given that VMware’s $30 million investment represents two-thirds of Puppet Labs’ total capital raised, the question must be asked: does it also come with serious strings attached?Knowing Puppet Labs founder and CEO Luke Kanies, probably not.No One’s PuppetIt’s not surprising that VMware would want to invest in Puppet Labs. After all, Puppet has become an enterprise standard for automating IT infrastructure. There are scads of big companies using Puppet, including Google, Harvard, and 24/7 Real Media. While the IT automation is increasingly crowded, with Opscode and SaltStack competing for open-source eyeballs and big vendors like IBM and BMC also in the ring, Puppet Labs has become the go-to technology today for companies with serious infrastructure automation needs. With reference to Opscode, specifically, I’ve heard it said that companies with existing infrastructure use Puppet, whereas startups born in the cloud tend to gravitate toward Chef (Opscode).All of which fits well into VMware’s customer profile. But does VMware fit into Puppet Labs’ plans going forward? And how does Puppet Labs retain its independence given that so much of its funding now comes from one vendor, adding to the funding it already raised from Cisco and Google, as well as a smaller amount from VMware in an earlier round?For those who know Kanies, this is a bit of a silly question.I’ve been friends for years with Kanies, and advised the company early on before it had taken funding. Back then it was just two guys (Kanies and co-founder Andrew Shafer, who has since gone on to work at Cloudscaling and OpenStack and is currently working on a stealth startup), and I was fortunate to spend time with them, working through likely business models. Kanies was somewhat reluctant to take funding then, as he wanted his independence. If you know Kanies, you know that independence is a big deal with him. Raised on a hippie commune in Tennessee (yes, really), Kanies isn’t the sort of person to sell his soul, or independence, for $30 million.Not that doing so for VMware dollars would be a terrible outcome. It seems likely that $30M was second prize in VMware’s mind; that it would have preferred an outright acquisition. But with the investment, which Kanies says leaves VMware as a minority shareholder, Kanies gets the money to scale Puppet Labs without the strings attached (sorry, couldn’t resist). As Shafer related to me over IM:The cloud transition is creating growth opportunities for next generation systems management products. The alliance will be great for Puppet Labs and great for VMware. It’s important to remember that VMware is building a portfolio of core infrastructure pieces that are rooted in open source, and has given them some autonomy even after acquisition. Puppet Labs has a preexistent relationship with a number of these open-source communities, like OpenStack, which should be complemented by this investment.Or as Kanies tells me, when asked whether this investment means he’s locked into VMware-only infrastructure: “Puppet’s strength is in supporting heterogeneous environments, whether physical or virtual servers running on-premise or in the cloud, we support a broad array of infrastructure and are agnostic as to whether it comes from Red Hat, Microsoft, or VMware.”Translation?  Kanies is no tool.  Or a puppet.
