  • Study Shows Majority of Hoosiers Worry About School Shootings

    Study Shows Majority of Hoosiers Worry About School ShootingsNOVEMBER 12TH, 2018 MITCH ANGLE INDIANAAccording to preliminary results of the Old National Bank/Ball State University 2018 Hoosier Survey, Hoosiers are worried about the possibility of a shooting happening at their local schools, but the proposed safety measures that get the most attention receive the least support.In the telephone survey of 604 adult Hoosiers, when asked how worried they were about a school shooting, 20% of Hoosiers said they were “very worried” and another 36% said they were “somewhat worried” for a total of 56%.“There have been a number of tragic incidents nationwide, including the one in Noblesville in May, so it’s not surprising that people would be concerned,” said Charles Taylor, managing director of the Bowen Center for Public Affairs at Ball State, which conducts the annual public opinion survey. “The level of concern was somewhat higher in urban areas, where 62 percent were ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ worried, than in rural or suburban areas.Support for the two remaining measures was not as widespread. Only 36 percent of Hoosiers thought that banning assault-style weapons would be ‘very effective;’ only 30 percent rated arming teachers and school officials as ‘very effective.’“We also asked the survey respondents their opinion about the likely effectiveness of a number of potential school safety measures. Preventing people with mental illness from purchasing guns was rated as ‘very effective,’ by 61% of Hoosiers. Improving mental health screening and treatment was second with 58%. Placing metal detectors was third with 47%.”Complete results of the Hoosier Survey will be released November 13th. TwitterFacebook FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare read more

  • Cautious investors keep lid on U.S. metallurgical coal expansion

    first_imgCautious investors keep lid on U.S. metallurgical coal expansion FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):U.S. metallurgical coal producers have enjoyed supportive international pricing trends since fall 2016 but continue to report logistical and capital constraints keeping a lid on further growth.The industry has had two years to get comfortable with improved metallurgical coal pricing after a years-long downturn in prices for the commodity played a big role in pushing major coal names such as Peabody Energy Corp. and Arch Coal Inc. into bankruptcy. While metallurgical coal producers eye potential for growth in places such as China and India, U.S. producers have brought on little new capacity, even as an already-constrained supply situation continues to tighten, in part thanks to limited access to capital and difficulties securing transportation.“The key thing is confidence,” Ian Cameron, senior director in iron and steel with consultant Hatch Ltd., said during a Nov. 7 panel discussion on opportunities and threats in the coke and coal sector at the 2018 MetCoke World Summit in Pittsburgh. “Is this something that can sustain itself long enough to pay for major, major investments, not only in mines but in cokemaking facilities?”The ownership of several U.S. coal companies that produce metallurgical coal changed drastically in the wave of bankruptcies that swept the sector. New investors want to see a return on their capital much more than they want to see production totals rise, said Mike Nobis, director of coal trading at DTE Energy Services Inc.More ($): Despite price improvement, lack of confidence stymies U.S. met coal investmentlast_img read more

The visit served as a reminder about the importance of providing excellent service at your credit union.A few weeks prior, I ate at the same restaurant, and the owner mentioned business was slow. I took to social media to rave about how wonderful the food was and encouraged anyone who lived in the area to try it.Flash forward to my recent visit. The dining room was packed.

  • Malachi Richardson resurfaces, scores 17 points in win over Colgate

    first_img Published on December 8, 2015 at 10:40 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Michael Gbinije picked up his dribble on the left wing and Malachi Richardson was exactly where he was supposed to be. Trailing the fast break down the middle of the court. Chopping his steps so he could set up comfortably behind the 3-point line.Gbinije swung Richardson the ball, and he stared down the defender in front of him. Then he made a hard jab step with his right foot before taking one dribble to his left and stroking a 3.The make trimmed Colgate’s lead to one at a non-critical juncture — the 16:57 mark of the first half in a game that was unexciting throughout. But for Richardson, it was far more than a tiny dent on the scoreboard.“For me, making shots period, it does something for me,” Richardson said. “… Coming out early I wanted to get my jump shot going and I think I did a good job of that.”Before Syracuse (7-2) beat Colgate (2-6) 78-51 on Tuesday night, Richardson had made 3-of-20 3s in his last three games after shooting 41.9 percent from deep in the Orange’s first five. But the freshman broke his slump with a career-high 17 points against the Raiders, making 4-of-10 3s and adding five rebounds and three assists to his line.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRichardson’s increased production — he scored a combined 10 total points in losses to Wisconsin and Georgetown last week — helped SU snap a two-game skid and was a product of his unwavering confidence.“Malachi’s got like the (Gerry McNamara) effect,” said Mike Hopkins, who filled in for SU head coach Jim Boeheim for the second of nine games. “Where if you miss nine he felt like he was making the next nine, and that’s the kind of shooter that you want. You want the guy that if they’re open they’re going to knock it down.”After getting home from Washington D.C., Richardson said he spent extra time in the gym over the last few days. That included extra shots with McNamara, who coaches the Orange guards — the former Syracuse star was in Richardson’s ear at practice on Monday. After missing two straight shots in a drill, Richardson slammed the ball off the Carrier Dome floor.So when the team started playing five-on-five in the half court, McNamara urged Richardson to have his feet ready to shoot on every play. He caught a pass from the wing and hit a 3. Then he went off the dribble from the right wing and hit one fading toward the corner. Soon, Richardson’s shots were pouring in and he looked at McNamara and smirked.Practice translated to the first half on Tuesday, when Richardson hit 3-of-7 from long range to snap out of his shooting funk.“Malachi is another weapon that we have, and when he gets going, when any of us get going, we’re a better team,” SU shooting Trevor Cooney said. “Especially when all of us get going, we’re a pretty good offensive team.”That’s what happened Tuesday, when Richardson and Gbinije each scored a game-high 17 and Cooney finished with 14. The trio combined to make 12 of the Orange’s 14 3s, which allowed Syracuse to space the floor from three spots and draw Colgate’s compact matchup zone away from the paint. And when the Raiders extended its pressure to the perimeter in the second half, Richardson attacked the rim and padded his point total at the foul line.For two games, Richardson’s jump shots fell short of the hoop while Syracuse fell short of its opponents. On Tuesday, the Orange’s offensive versatility resurfaced as its versatile freshman scorer woke up. Richardson is only nine games into his college career, but his contributions to a mercurial offense are already heavily affecting SU’s results.“It’s just basketball,” Richardson said. “I’m going to make shots and I’m going to miss them.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
