Russell is currently projected to be among those top five picks.Multiple reports emerged Friday morning saying Jackson’s comments could have violated NBA rules. League rules state that team front office’s are prohibited from discussing players who are not draft eligible.Being fined for tampering is not foreign to Jackson. In June, he was fined $25,000 by the NBA for his comments about then-Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher as potential candidate for the Knicks’ head coaching vacancy. Fisher was later hired as New York’s coach.Following the conclusion of Ohio State’s season, Russell will have until April 26 to decide whether or not he will enter the NBA Draft.Russell and the Buckeyes are scheduled to return to the court Sunday against Purdue at 7:30 p.m at the Schottenstein Center.Phil Jackson tells @DougLesmerises that Ohio State PG D’Angelo Russell is “a great looking kid with a great future.” pic.twitter.com/bB1oO0pEIT— Lantern TV (@LanternTV) February 27, 2015
Ohio State’s women’s volleyball starting lineup stands together prior to the game against No. 5 Minnesota on Oct. 18. Credit: Rebecca Farage | Lantern ReporterThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team (11-9, 4-5 Big Ten) suffered a 3-0 loss to No. 5 Minnesota (18-2, 7-2 Big Ten) Wednesday night at St. John Arena.Although each team had nine blocks, 16 errors and 124 attacks, it was Minnesota who came out on top, buoyed by a .274 hitting percentage and 50 kills.“We’re not there.” head coach Geoff Carlston said. “I don’t like moral victories, but I thought we did a lot of good things tonight to build on.”Junior setter Taylor Hughes, who led her team with 24 assists, knew the Gophers would pose a strong threat especially because of Minnesota junior setter Samantha Seliger-Swenson, arguably the Big Ten’s top setter.“We were expecting a very fast offense by them … that’s kind of hard to keep up with,” Hughes said. “We put up a good fight.”The first set started off slow for the Buckeyes as the Gophers went on a 4-0 run to open the match. The Gophers built a 17-4 lead when Ohio State called a timeout. Soon thereafter the Buckeyes went on a 7-2 run, but Minnesota’s defense remained strong with four blocks and 17 digs, earning them the set, 25-15.Senior outside hitter Luisa Schirmer’s second kill tied the second set at 4-4, the first of eight ties as well as two lead changes. The Buckeyes were able to play a close set against the Gophers with 15 kills, three blocks, and 29 digs. Senior outside hitter Ashley Wenz contributed six kills on a .455 clip for the Buckeyes, but Minnesota’s freshman middle blocker Regan Pittman helped her team with five kills and a .625 hitting percentage, leading the Gophers to win the second set 25-20.Minnesota picked up the lead in the third set and maintained it as the Buckeyes closely trailed. Although the Buckeyes tried to catch up, the Gophers’ 20 kills and .405 hitting percentage won them the set 25-18.Carlston credited Minnesota and recognized the Gophers’ hard plays. Although he believes the Buckeyes played well, Carlston still sees room for improvement.“I think we really stressed them out defensively with mixing up our shots, that was important for us,” Carlston said. “But I think we need to play better defense.”Hughes agreed with Carlston that the Buckeyes need to focus more on their defensive strategy and remaining consistent.“A lot of games are won and lost in the serve-and-pass game and [Minnesota] served really aggressively,” Hughes said. “Upping our serve for Sunday can help us a lot. Getting most teams out of system will give us the upper hand.”Carlston thought his team came back well in the second and third sets, but in the end the Gophers had a fire that the Buckeyes were lacking.The Buckeyes will face Michigan for the second time this season at 1 p.m. on Sunday at St. John.
Newcastle United’s target Gelson Martins has completed a loan switch from Atletico Madrid to Monaco.And reports circulating in the media claims the former Sporting Lisbon winger rejected a move to the Magpies in favour of Monaco until the end of the season.The 23-year-old has made just eight LaLiga appearances for Diego Simeone’s side since his arrival at the Wanda Metropolitano on a free transfer from Sporting CP in July.Gelson’s managed to make one league start for Atletico came in November, which ended in a 1-1 draw with Leganes.His departure paves the way for Atletico to make a purported move for unsettled Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.With Monaco struggling for survival in Ligue 1, Gelson is confident the re-appointment of Leonardo Jardim will spark a revival in the club’s quest for survival.💬 @GelsonMartins_ : “Jusqu’à la fin de la saison, chaque match sera une finale.”—–⬇️ Les premiers mots de Gelson Martins sous ses nouvelles couleurs ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/mmlzApo3kpLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns.

The inauguration ceremony of the Japanese Language Teachers’ Training Centre was held at Jawaharlal Nehru University on July 23.The event was attended by Kenji Hiramatsu, Ambassador (Japan); Tomoyuki Sakurai, Executive Vice President of Japan Foundation(Japan) along with the Indian dignitaries like General V K Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs and Professor M Jagadesh Kumar, Vice-Chancellor of JNU among others.Looking back at the Japan-India summit meeting held in September 2017, Prime Minister Abe and Prime Minister Modi decided to train 1,000 teachers and launch Japanese language certificate courses at 100 higher educational institutions in India, in the next five years.

He further added stating, “The number of Japanese companies is increasing every year, and is now about four times the number as 10 years ago. These companies require Indians who can speak Japanese, in order to act as bridges between their Indian subsidiaries and headquarters in Japan.””The number of Indians who are interested in Japan and want to learn the Japanese language is steadily increasing. But the number of Japanese language teachers is still too small vis-à-vis the number of potential learners. The centre will certainly contribute to addressing this reality.”Sakurai said, “I am expecting excellent Japanese language teachers are trained through this project, and many Japanese language courses will start at higher institutes in India.”V K Singh said, “Japan is an important partner of India. Development of Japanese in India enhances people to people contacts and helps many ventures that will come in India.”
Recommended Link — Over on the chart, things have calmed down. The line on the chart is headed sideways, with little action in either direction. There’s less volatility.But in the background, energy is building. Those socks had to be going somewhere… and it wasn’t the hamper.Remember, human emotions don’t change. They’re remarkably consistent. But emotions do evolve, and sometimes it takes a bigger catalyst to elicit the same response.That catalyst was provided when my wife was vacuuming one day and moved the sofa in order to vacuum the carpet beneath it. She found about a dozen pairs of my dirty socks tucked beneath the couch.Boom!You can guess what happened next on the chart…Here’s my point…Profiting in a Crazy MarketLike the charts above, a short-term stock chart is simply the emotional representation of traders and investors reacting to the stock.If we can spot previous patterns on the chart that look similar to how that chart looks today, then we can see how those previous patterns played out and then trade the stock in anticipation of a similar reaction.A lot of my trading strategy revolves around finding emotionally overbought/oversold conditions that are ready to reverse. Technical analysis helps me identify conditions where investors’ emotions have gotten extreme, and then I can see how stocks have reacted to similar conditions in the past.This is exactly what traders should be doing in 2019. In the volatile market we’re seeing today, any extreme condition is likely to reverse. Likewise, any overly calm condition is likely to explode with energy in due time.And here’s why: Periods of low volatility are always followed by periods of high volatility – and vice versa.Consider this… In 2017, stocks just kept marching higher. Overbought conditions just got more overbought. There was nothing for traders to do. No volatility.At the beginning of 2018, the stock market had just come off the least volatile period of the entire bull market. Investors who figured stocks would go up forever were greeted with massive drops in February, October, and December.And here’s the thing… I think we’re in for an even crazier year in 2019.Most long-term investors won’t know what to do. But this is exactly the environment where guys like me (traders) can thrive.Like I told my subscribers last week, investors should take their gain for the year and sit this one out. It’s probably the best way to keep your portfolio intact.But for traders who pay attention to technical analysis, there are opportunities to profit … every single trading day… no matter what the market does.Best regards and good trading, Click here to learn more Stock charts tell me how traders/investors are responding emotionally at any given point in time. Human emotions are remarkably consistent. We tend to respond the same way, over and over again, to the same circumstances.So if I can go back into a chart, find a time where the conditions were similar to where they are today, and note how the chart behaved afterwards… it can provide strong clues for what to expect in the future.But technical analysis is emotional. It evolves over time. Conditions that used to provide a catalyst for a big move may need to get more extreme to cause a similar movement the next time.Think about it this way…Charting EmotionsWhen I first got married, I’d often come home from work, take off my socks, and drop them on the floor next to the couch in the living room. My wife would come home, see my socks on the floor, and get all ticked off about it. In other words, she’d have an emotional reaction to her husband leaving his socks in the middle of the living room floor. This happened over and over again.Now, think of how this reaction looks on a typical stock chart…It starts with a line trending sideways – my wife’s emotions before she knew all about my sock habit. You can see the line climb as my wife got more and more frustrated…Eventually though, my wife got a little better about dealing with her slob of a husband, and I got a little better about not leaving my socks next to the couch. Leaving my socks on the floor no longer elicited the same reaction from my wife.She still had the same emotions. But she had adapted. She had evolved. She suppressed her emotions and would need a bigger catalyst before getting upset with me again… Recommended Link You could lose everything this year…in the worst market crash since 2008Stocks could fall by 50% in a matter of weeks, with no warning.
