There is a kindergarten and childcare centre in White Rock. Trinity Anglican School has been located at White Rock for 35 years. From the top of its purpose built STEM facility, the view of the actual White Rock and surrounding landscape is spectacular.Principal Paul Sjogren said there were benefits to being located at White Rock.“Being on the southside of Cairns has its advantages; with easy access to Innisfail and Mission Beach areas while still being 15 minutes out of Cairns City. We have a wide range of great local shops and food outlets, and can be self-sufficient,” he said.

first_imgHey, Trojan fans — do you remember where you were when you found out that your favorite football team would be banned from the postseason for the next two years?It happened around mid-day on June 10. Midwesterners and West Coasters, you probably found out right around lunchtime on that Thursday from — well, you know.East Coasters, you might have been on your way home from a stressful New York City internship or settling in for what you expected to be a nice, peaceful dinner at home.Well, whenever and wherever it was that you heard the news, I’m willing to bet that it’s probably not a happy place for you  anymore — and with good reason. But for those of you who wonder if the Coliseum will take on the same hellish attributes, I’m here to say you can safely hold on to some hope.Here’s the thing: Upon examination, the sanctions aren’t as extreme as they seem.The postseason in college football is completely different than the postseason in college basketball. On the basketball court, a postseason ban could mean a loss of seven games; on the gridiron, it can’t possibly mean more than one.In that same vein, you could very well argue that the self-imposed one-year ban for the basketball team in January was a stricter punishment — at least from the players’ perspective.Yes, football’s two-year ban technically makes the next two seasons meaningless for the Trojans, with a national championship out of the question.But other big goals are possible. It’s not like the Trojans are banned from winning all their games. And a 13-0 season would surely be regarded as an indubitable success for the 2010 Trojans, BCS bowl game or not.It’s all about perspective, really. A 13-0 — or 12-1, even — season is unlikely for this team. But, truthfully, those records weren’t going to be likely even if USC had come away scot-free from the whole Reggie Bush debacle.And here’s the other thing. If you ask first-year coach Lane Kiffin what he thinks the implications of the NCAA-imposed sanctions will be for the future of the USC football program, he’ll minimize them.If you ask rival coaches what they think the implications of the NCAA-imposed sanctions will be or what the future holds for the USC football program, they’ll maximize them.Kiffin might or might not be many  of the things that he is believed to be by many members of the public — a good coach, a bad guy and all that stuff.But he is definitely one thing: a good recruiter. The man — and his lead assistant, defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron — can recruit with the best of them.And they are very, very familiar with how to minimize weaknesses and maximize strengths.That’s what the semi-immediate future of the football program (think 2011 and beyond) will come down to. Given a significant headstart of sorts, will other teams in the conference and the nation be able to out-recruit Kiffin, Orgeron and company?Maybe, but maybe not.The loss of 10 scholarships a season — bringing the allotted total down from 25 to 15 — beginning next August and continuing until the 2013 season will be significant, yes.But deadly?No.How many scholarship players do you think the Trojans have in the class of 2014?Fewer than you think — 18. And only 17 have actually enrolled at the time this article was published.So you’re telling me, essentially, a loss of two December or January games and nine or so recruits over the next three years will mean the death of the USC football program.Sounds a little extreme when you put it like that, doesn’t it?Much more likely than complete implosions are a couple 11-2 or 10-3 seasons for the next two or three years and a return to glory by about 2015.The University of Miami had similar sanctions placed on its football program back in 1995. The Hurricanes won a national title just six years later, in 2001. That’s entirely possible for the Trojans.In the meantime, you’ll have to deal with some taunts from your Pac-10 school-attending friends and some smaller crowds at the Coliseum for the Washington States of the country, but it’ll be over before you know it.Seriously.“Looking Past the X’s and O’s” runs every other Friday.

first_imgUPDATED: Oct. 8, 2018 at 12:10 a.m.As a small child, Elizabeth Jamison roamed the sidelines of her mother’s ultimate frisbee games.  Her mother, Alicia Shultz, played in various ultimate tournaments and taught her the basics of the sport. Throughout Jamison’s time in high school, they played in local social and women’s leagues together, and while she’s glad Jamison picked up the sport, Shultz never pushed her to play. Jamison found a passion for the sport on her own.  “She always wanted me to (play) it,” Jamison said, “but I was actually planning on going to school for music, so all my time (in high school) was towards music stuff. So, she definitely established my love for it, but then I came back to it because of my own love.”Jamison’s first experience with competitive ultimate came her sophomore year at SUNY-ESF when she joined Fox Force Seven, the Syracuse women’s ultimate frisbee team. Now, as a senior, she’s one of two captains on the team and handles scheduling, payments and practices, among other things. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter a freshman year in which her former roommate and close friend Miranda Ciardulli described Jamison as being in the library all the time, the pair discovered Fox Force Seven through an event called “Discology.” Ciardulli thought they should go to the event, not Jamison.Both enjoyed the event and joined the team, and while it was Ciardulli’s first time playing, Jamison already had an advantage on many of the players. Summer leagues and learning from her mom aided Jamison. In the first month after she joined the team, she was one of three new players invited to play with the team in a tournament.“The normal way you throw a frisbee is the backhand, and then there’s a flick (forehand),” Ciardulli said. “Usually, people who are just learning cannot throw that for their life, but she could already throw it, and she could play, and her flick is just amazing, so people would be like, ‘Oh my God.’” Jamison still had adjustments. College ultimate was faster and more strategic. In higher levels of the sport, there are two positions – cutters and handlers – and they function akin to quarterbacks and wide receivers in football. Jamison handles for the college team and cuts for her club team. More fluid than football, ultimate players don’t run individual plays or wait for a whistle. Instead, it flows more similar to a soccer team advancing the ball downfield with the only difference being a player with the frisbee can only advance it by passing. For the last two years, Jamison has spent her summers playing for Boomslang, a club frisbee team located out of Albany. There are four main leagues for ultimate in and around Jamison’s hometown of Schenectady – competitive, open competitive, social and women’s. Boomslang reaches beyond local competition, hosting tryouts for prospective players and competing against teams from beyond central New York. At the end of their season, club teams play in both sectional and regional qualifiers leading up to the national tournament, which Jamieson has yet to make with Boomslang. Beyond the results, the increased activity with the sport has brought her closer to her mother. It’s their main topic of conversation when they’re around each other, and Shultz goes to most of Jamison’s games. Jamison’s co-captain, Megan Kirby, said that Shultz is often her daughter’s biggest critic and always pushes her to play better.“I’m so lucky,” Jamison said. “I don’t have many friends in the ultimate community who can go out and throw with their mom or play with their mom, so it’s fantastic.”  The same passion that has kept Shultz around the sport for more than 20 years has carried over to Jamison. She hopes to pass on her knowledge to the next generation of ultimate players as was once done for her. “Because ultimate is a relatively new sport and most people don’t know much about it,” Jamison said, “I want to foster the community, especially in high schools and getting women involved at younger ages.”  CORRECTION: In a previous version of this article, Elizabeth Jamison was misnamed. The Daily Orange regrets this error.  Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 5, 2018 at 1:00 pm Contact Arabdho: armajumd@syr.edu | @aromajumder center_img Commentslast_img read more

WADA accused Moscow of falsifying data from a doping testing laboratory that was handed over to investigators earlier this year.READ | Odell Beckham Jr Addresses Helmet-throwing Incident Against The Baltimore RavensRussia has said it would contest the ban, with President Vladimir Putin slamming the sanctions as politically motivated. Speaking on Tuesday, Pozdnyakov confirmed that the Russian Olympic Committee would support the decision of its supervisory board to defy the WADA ban.

I am still the special one of Ghana football,” Opeele told Asempa FM.“I’ve heard people say I am a talkative but I will still talk because that gives me money, it helps me to feed my family.“I can never be intimidated; I will be who I am because that’s how God created me. I will never change.“I’ve changed so many things in coaching in the country; I’ve forced coaches to talk about system and tactics after games rather than thanking God, and am proud of that.”Opeele has coached a lot of clubs in his young coaching career including Tudu Mighty Jets, defunct Kessben FC, Sekondi Hasaacas and Asante Kotoko.last_img read more

first_imgOKLAHOMA CITY — Another road trip without LeBron James wasn’t ideal for the Lakers this week, but at least there’s an optimistic note when they return.Wednesday’s news that James (strained left groin) will be cleared to practice next week was a welcome development given that the Lakers haven’t had him able to do much in nearly a month, save shoot and pass in half-court scenarios. But Luke Walton was a little cautious to say it’s a total green light.“We’ll see how this weekend goes,” Walton said. “He stayed back so that he could obviously get more work in, more treatment, not have to travel, hotel rooms. Just 100 percent focus on what he needs to do. And depending on how that goes and how he feels after this weekend will determine how much he can practice.”James’ troublesome groin will now keep him out a minimum of 13 games, and while the Lakers are hopeful he can join them during a stretch of five straight games at Staples Center to end the month, it’s far from certain. James’ agent Rich Paul recently told The Athletic that James’ health was not on anyone’s timeline but his own.

On Thursday morning in Oklahoma, the team did more work than usual during shootaround despite having a number of minor injuries that many players have soldiered through.“It’s easy to say it, but our guys actually, they go out and do it,” he said. “They come in and work, and they bring the right energy no matter what’s happening.
