Pepperdine wins opener 2-0 over BYU

first_img Robert Lovell March 29, 2018 /Sports News – Local Pepperdine wins opener 2-0 over BYU FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMALIBU, Calif. (March 25, 2018)—Four different scoring opportunities escaped the grasp of BYU baseball in a 2-0 loss at Pepperdine on Thursday.The Cougars out-hit the Waves 7-4, but stranded runners in scoring position in the third, fifth, seventh and eighth innings. Conversely, BYU forced Pepperdine to leave runners in scoring position in the first, seventh and eighth frames.BYU starter Jordan Wood (2-2) was tagged with the loss after giving up only four hits and a solitary walk in seven plus innings. The Cougars are now 13-11 overall and 2-5 in the West Coast Conference.“Jordan (Wood) was as good today as I’ve seen him, he gave us a great start but we just couldn’t put the offense together for him,” BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. “Wil Jensen did a nice job against us, he didn’t have his best stuff but he got big outs when he needed them, especially when we had bases-loaded no outs in the third.”Consecutive singles by Jarrett Perns, Mitch McIntyre and Brennon Anderson loaded the bases in the third inning for BYU. Perns had extended his consecutive hitting streak to 15 games, but was thrown out at the plate on Daniel Schneemann’s fielder’s choice.The Waves countered with an unearned run in the third and added a second run in the seventh.In the seventh inning, Nate Favero advanced to second after David Clawson successfully executed a sacrifice bunt. Favero moved to third on a passed ball where he remained.Anderson led off with another single in the eighth, advanced to second on a balk, then was thrown out at the plate on Schneemann’s single to left center as the Cougars tried to close the gap on a 2-0 deficit. When Brock Hale drew a walk, the Waves brought in a second relief pitcher with their designated hitter Jordan Qsar and got Keaton Kringlen to fly out with two Cougars aboard.“We hit the ball hard today but the wind held a few of them up,” Littlewood said. “We’ll come back ready play tomorrow (Friday).”Cottonwood High prep Wil Jensen remained undefeated at 5-0 as Pepperdine’s record improved to 11-13 overall and 3-4 in the WCC. The two teams play the second of a three-game series on Friday at 3 p.m. PDT.​ Tags: Baseball/BYU Cougars/WCC Written bylast_img read more

Saint Mary’s conducts post-graduation survey

first_imgErin Rice The Saint Mary’s Office of Institutional Research conducted the annual “Graduation Destination Survey” to find out what students are doing after graduation.According to the survey, of the 320 women in the class of 2015, 274 responded for a response rate of 85.6 percent.The data showed that 52.6 percent of the class of 2015 will enter the work force, 26.6 percent will go on to graduate school, 10.1 percent will participate in externships and internships, and 6.1 percent have committed to voluntary service.Director of Career Crossings Stacie Jeffirs said compared to last year’s survey, the number of students pursuing voluntary service is just about the same. She said the number was 6.1 percent this year and 6.8 percent last year, which is the equivalent of about a two-student difference.The results showed that 4.3 percent answered “other” to the survey. Jeffirs said the other category includes fellowships, continuing at Notre Dame to obtain an engineering degree, starting a business or entrepreneurship and other plans.The survey revealed less than .5 percent will go on to military service.Jeffirs said the survey data is representative of Saint Mary’s mission.“The College prepares students to go out and pursue wherever their passions may lie, whether this is a workplace setting through employment or post-grad internships/externships, graduate/professional school, military service or voluntary service,” Jeffirs said.After graduating, senior Marissa Pié will work at Southwest Airlines corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Pié interned with Southwest last summer.“I’ve accepted a job in the marketing department on the Customer Segment and Engagement team,” Pié said. “After such an incredible internship experience with the company, I could not be more excited to get to work.”Pié said Saint Mary’s has gone above and beyond in terms of preparing her for the workforce.“It was at Saint Mary’s that I discovered my confidence, learned how to effectively communicate and maintain relationships and pushed myself to reach my full potential,” she said.Before Saint Mary’s, Pié said she lacked self-confidence and was afraid to speak her mind.“Saint Mary’s has equipped me not only with technical and professional knowledge, but a sense of self-assurance that I am sure will transcend into the workplace,” she said. “Receiving a liberal arts education pushed me, but also made me realize I could do anything with a little bit of hard work.”Pié said professors at Saint Mary’s have become friends and confidants. The whole college community supports and encourages growth of students, she said.“Everyone here wants you to succeed and will go that extra mile in order for that to happen,” she said. “Additionally, Saint Mary’s taught me the importance of taking risks and leaving my comfort zone. After returning from a semester abroad in Seville, Spain as a mere sophomore, I could tell my perspective and world view would be forever changed.”Tags: Commencement 2015, Graduation destination survey, Office of Institutional Research, saint mary’slast_img read more

The legislation was signed into law in October.The Maritime Alliance cited the Fugro/Planck Aerosystems collaboration as a prime example of member companies working together for mutual benefit, as well as to the benefit of the ocean environment.

5 Tips for Choosing a Natural Sunscreen for Summer Fun

first_imgFacebook169Tweet0Pin1By Niki Whiting for Radiance Herbs and MassageSummer is creeping up on us fast — and spring feels quite a bit like summer these days. That means it’s time to stock up on sunscreens. Radiance Herbs and Massage offers many choices for you and your family. But what do you need to know when making a selection?Radiance Herbs and Massage has a large kids section including safe sunscreens for your child.1. Use Broad Spectrum Sunscreens – Look for sunscreens that are labeled as broad spectrum. These mean that they block both UVA and UVB rays, aspects of the ultraviolet light spectrum. The SPF rating on the bottle only refers to the factor of UVB rays blocked by the product. For example, SPF 15 blocks approximately 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks about 97%. If you apply enough sunscreen, both in quantity and re-apply as necessary, you don’t have to pay more for higher SPF ratings. And, if you plan on being in the water, make sure you choose a water-resistant sunscreens. Radiance has several specifically for kids.2. Know the difference between UVA and UVB – What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays? UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburn and short-term effects. UVA rays are the ones that cause longer-term damage, promoting the classic signs of aging. UVA rays account for the vast majority of UV (ultraviolet) radiation and these rays can pass through glass and clouds, unlike UVB rays, which cannot.The knowledgable staff at Radiance can help you find just what you are looking for.3. Look for Natural Products – Radiance has done the research and carries at least six different brands of high-quality sunscreen. None of these products contain synthetic ingredients; they use only titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, sun-blocking mineral compounds, as the active ingredients. Both of these ingredients block both UVA and UVB rays. If the slight whitening effect of these ingredients bothers you, Badger brand has a tinted formula and MyChelle uses a zinc formulation that won’t turn you white.Why should you purchase an all-natural sunscreen? Besides being healthier for your skin and body overall, many of these sunscreens are biodegradable, which is important for the ecology of the waterways if you are swimming in lakes, streams, or the ocean.4. Choose Non-nano Sunscreens – Another hot topic in sunscreens right now is the question of particle size and the preference for “non-nano” ingredients in natural health circles. Nano-particles are so small that they can be absorbed by the skin into the bloodstream, whereas non-nano particles are larger and sit on top of the skin. Radiance carries only non-nano sunscreens.5. Don’t Overlook Other Sun Protection Products – Other sunscreen products youRadiance Herbs and Massage is located on 5th Avenue in downtown Olympia.might want to check out are lip balms that include sun protection and Badger’s 2-in-1 sunscreen and bug repellent.The staff at Radiance Herbs and Massage will be happy to help you find a sunscreen that fits your needs.
