Dikarenakan jalur kedua kereta ini berada di bukit, maka lintasannya pun menjadi miring.Tak hanya jalur yang pendek, kereta ini memiliki waktu tempuh yang sangat singkat hanya satu menit. Selain itu tempat duduk di dalam kereta pun dibuat berundak seperti tangga.Kereta di jalur Angels Flight (mashable.com)Jalur ini sempat beberapa kali berhenti beroperasi karena distrik Bunker Hill berubah menjadi daerah modern sehingga Angels Flight tak lagi dibutuhkan. Namun, berkat usaha warga setempat, tahun 1996, Angels Flight kembali dioprerasikan.Sayangnya, masa kemunduran kembali di alami tahun 2001, dimana terjadi kecelakaan yang menyebabkan satu orang meninggal dan yang lainnya luka-luka. Ini membuat Angels Flight izin operasinya di tahan.Tahun 2010 lalu, Angels Flight kembali beroperasi, namun tahun 2013 kecelakaan kembali terjadi. Meski tidak ada korban luka, kecelakaan ini kembali membuat pemerintah setempat enggan memberi izi pengoperasian Angels Flight.Baca juga: Terowongan Notog “Baru,” Siap Tembus Jalur Kereta Purwokerto-Kroya dengan Rel GandaBanyak yang mengira nasib jalur ini berakhir, tetapi ternyata pada Maret 2017 lalu, Angels Flight kembali beroperasi dengan keamanan yang terjamin.

SWAC suspends 15 players for fight in women’s game

first_imgTexas Southern imposed its own penalty on the women’s basketball team, withdrawing from the Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament that begins Wednesday.That move Monday night came hours before the conference handed out suspensions for 15 players involved in the bench-clearing fight between the Lady Tigers and Southern on Saturday night. It’s believed to be one of the biggest number of suspensions in NCAA women’s basketball history.The conference announced later that seven players from Southern and eight from Texas Southern were suspended for their roles in the skirmish that resulted in the contest being ruled a double forfeit.“After deliberate consultation and review with our conference office regarding the incident that transpired on March 7, 2015, we’ve come to the decision that our women’s basketball team will not participate in the upcoming 2015 SWAC Women’s Basketball Tournament, as we would not be able to successfully field a competitive team due to the number of suspensions,” Texas Southern Director of Athletics Dr. Charles McClelland said in release announcing the school’s decisiion.“In addition to the multi-game suspensions handed down from our league office, we will also be imposing some additional measures to ensure that our student-athletes fully understand the severity of what took place on Saturday. With that being said, we’re not going to throw in the towel or give up on these young ladies.”Texas Southern players Toni Cheadle, Dana Jones, Miracle Davis, Diamonisha Sophus, Morgan Simmons, Ashley Ferguson and Alexus Johnson were all given one game suspensions by the conference. Kiana Vines received a two-game suspension.Southern’s Shaquandria Litmon, Jadea Brundidge, Jasmine Jefferson, Kendra Coleman, Corteni Purnell and Yasmine Nelson were all awarded a one-game penalty. Keonia Parrish was given two games. She was dismissed from the Jaguars team on Monday.“After reviewing the video footage and conferring with our administration, our program made the decision to dismiss Keonia Parrish from the team based on her involvement in Saturday’s incident at Texas Southern,” coach Sandy Pugh said in a statement. “We would like to reiterate that any behavior of this nature is extreme and completely beyond the boundaries of tolerable. As a result, we felt that an immediate dismissal was warranted. We wish Keonia the best in her future endeavors.”The Jaguars also suspended Kenidi Robinson for the remainder of the season. Southern will face No. 7 seed Grambling at noon on Wednesday.Texas Southern was the top seed in the tournament. With the Lady Tigers withdrawing, the winner of the game between Alabama A&M and Mississippi Valley advances.The incident occurred with 12:36 left in the game Saturday, with Southern leading 51-49. Davis had just drawn a charge underneath the basket for Texas Southern.The officials ruled the game a double forfeit. Since the game lasted less than 30 minutes on the clock, NCAA rules don’t count the stats. Southern was awarded the victory because it was leading at the time.With the two teams tied at 16-2 in the conference standings, Texas Southern was awarded the top seed in the tournament, by virtue of outscoring Southern in the two meetings.___Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberglast_img read more

College Football Playoff scenarios for the remaining contenders

first_img.oembed-asset-link { background: #fff; border-bottom: 1px solid #e1e1e1; }.oembed-link-anchor { display: block; clear: both; }.oembed-link-thumbnail{ float: left; padding: 14px; }.oembed-link-thumbnail img { max-width: 78px; max-height: 60px; display: block; }p.oembed-link-title { font-size: 75%; color: #009BFF; margin: 0 14px; padding-top: 12px; font-weight:normal; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; }p.oembed-link-desc { font-size: 100%; color: #666; font-weight: normal; margin: 0 14px 14px 14px; font-family: ‘Futura Today Light’; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; } Path to the Playoff: Beat No. 12 Florida in the SEC championship. Though a number of Alabama’s opponents — Wisconsin, Mississippi, Texas A&M and LSU to name four — seemed to fade after facing the Tide, all but one of their 10 wins vs. FBS opponents are what the committee considers a quality win.That strength of schedule has impressed the committee and seemingly locks the Tide into one of the four seeds if they win out. But a loss to Florida, coupled with its home loss to Ole Miss, could knock out Alabama altogether.No. 3 Oklahoma (11-1)Path to the Playoff: It is inconceivable, based on their Big 12 championship and current selection committee ranking, that the Sooners have not already locked up one of the four Playoff seeds. Selection committee chair would not commit to that on Tuesday night, but he’s pretty much not allowed.No. 4 Iowa (12-0)Path to the Playoff: Win the Big Ten championship. This finish would seem to guarantee Iowa a spot in the Playoff, not only because it would provide the Hawkeyes with a conference title, but also because Iowa would add a victory against another highly ranked Playoff top 25 team to wins against Pittsburgh, Wisconsin and Northwestern. No. 7 Stanford (10-2)Path to the Playoff: Win the Pac-12 championship by beating USC on Dec. 5 and have Alabama lose to Florida.Stanford’s victory against Notre Dame on Nov. 28 eliminated one team ahead of it in the committee ranking. It would be interesting to see whether Stanford’s credentials — two losses but eight quality wins, including one vs. Notre Dame and two vs. USC plus a Pac-12 title — might be enough to supplant the Big 12 champ or at least edge Ohio State.No. 10 North Carolina (11-1)Path to the Playoff: Beat Clemson in the ACC championship, have Alabama lose the SEC championship and Stanford lose the Pac-12 championship. Even then, the committee might take Ohio State as a second Big Ten team rather than the Tar Heels. Chairman Jeff Longi intimated as much Tuesday night when he said the Buckeyes’ strength of schedule is clearly superior to North Carolina’s.Two of North Carolina’s wins came against FCS opponents, and the Tar Heels also have a loss against a team that fell to The Citadel, South Carolina. Those are not the credentials of a Playoff team.All that said, taking the Buckeyes over an ACC champion Tar Heels could set a precedent against conference championships that the committee might not want to make. No. 5 Michigan State (11-1)Path to the Playoff: Beat Iowa in the Big Ten championship. Thanks to résumé builders in the form of wins vs. Oregon, Michigan and Ohio State, Michigan State has an extremely strong case if it can add the conference title.No. 6 Ohio State (11-1)Path to the Playoff: With Stanford knocking out Notre Dame, the Buckeyes stay in the outer fringes of the Playoff conversation as a second potential Big Ten entrant. Even then, they would need Stanford and either Clemson or Alabama to lose their conference championship games. Stanford has one more loss than the Buckeyes, but it beats the Buckeyes in terms of quality wins. USA TODAYMichigan State might be college football’s most confident teamcenter_img Could the College Football Playoff selection committee actually be free of controversy for the remainder of the season?If the favorites in the ACC and SEC win their conference championships on Dec. 5, this season’s four-team Playoff field would be fairly cut and dry: The top three teams in the current rankings — Clemson, Alabama and Big 12 champion Oklahoma — plus the winner of the Big Ten championship game between Iowa and Michigan State.But what if North Carolina were to upset Clemson or Florida were to upset Alabama? Then as many as eight teams have a chance of making it.Examining the Playoff outlook for the most realistic contenders in the committee’s most recent rankings:No. 1 Clemson (12-0)Path to the Playoff: Beat No. 14 North Carolina in the ACC championship to close out the regular season. Do that, and Clemson should be no worse than the No. 2 seed in the Playoff.No. 2 Alabama (11-1)Follow the road to the 2015 College Football Playoff at The Football Four, our home to rate and debate the nation’s best.

Confident Pride takes on underdogs Volcanoes in today’s final

first_imgCMC – A confident Barbados Pride will be eyeing a successful defence of their Regional Super50 title while Windward Islands Volcanoes will be targeting their first success in five years, when they meet in the final at Coolidge Cricket Ground here, today.While Pride have been steady throughout the tournament, Volcanoes have struck form at the back end and will be extremely dangerous opponents in the day/night affair, which bowls off at 2 pm.Both teams are familiar with each other, having emerged from Group `A` staged in Bridgetown, with Pride topping the standings and Volcanoes finishing second.Pride’s head coach Emmerston Trotman told CMC Sports that though his side are confident, they are also very wary of the threat posed by their opponents.“The guys are confident, they’re having fun and they’re looking forward to tomorrow’s game. They’re prepared and have been having some good fun planning, and the mood is good,” he said.“We always plan for players. We have discussion about players. You’ve got the [likes of] Devon Smith, he’s always a dangerous player. We’ve got to work on him, plan well, bowl to him tight and allow him to make some errors so we’re working on him.“They’re other players in the team like the youngster (Tyrone Theophile) who got a hundred [in the semi-final], he’s quite an attacking player. We just have to be sure we don’t [allow them to free] their arms to hit many sixes and fours so we’re monitoring them quite closely.”Pride secured their berth in the final when they despatched off Kent Spitfires by 13 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis system in Wednesday’s first semi-final.Despite having lost as many as seven key players because of senior team duties with West Indies in Zimbabwe and Windies `A` in the England Lions series, Pride have remained a formidable unit with the likes of captain Kraigg Brathwaite and Roston Chase, showcasing their quality with a hundred and a half-century respectively in the semi-final.Volcanoes’ run, meanwhile, has been somewhat of a fairytale. They lost their first three matches of the preliminaries before bouncing back to win their last five and reach the final four.They were at their most aggressive in Thursday’s semi-final when they clinically dismantled Guyana Jaguars by 52 runs, and head coach Andre Coley said his side is prepared for the challenge of the title-holders.“Last year’s competition has no bearing on this year’s competition and we decided early up we wanted to play our brand of cricket,” he told CMC Sports.“Yes, we were off to a slow start but in the main we have actually played the way we wanted to play, and we are looking forward to another good contest.“Barbados … have lost a few players to international tours but they’re still a good side and any team can win on the day, especially in limited overs cricket.“The main thing for us is that we’ve played as a unit and we’ve communicated well on and off the field. We’ve had some trying times but we’ve pulled through [them] because we’ve played for each other.”Much of the batting responsibility will rest on veteran opener Devon Smith, Theophile, Kavem Hodge and Kyle Mayers, all of whom have been among the runs at some stage.Captain Shane Shillingford, the former West Indies off-spinner, leads the attack, with Hodge expected to play a key role with his left-arm spin.SQUADS:BARBADOS – Kraigg Brathwaite (captain), Joshua Bishop, Jonathan Carter, Roston Chase, Dominic Drakes, Keon Harding, Chemar Holder, Aaron Jones, Omar Phillips, Shamar Springer, Kevin Stoute, Tevyn Walcott, Hayden Walsh Jr, Kenroy Williams.VOLCANOES – Shane Shillingford (captain), Roland Cato, Johnson Charles, Kirk Edwards, Larry Edward, Kavem Hodge, Ryan John, Kyle Mayers, Obed McCoy, Devon Smith, Tyrone Theophile, Josh Thomas, Alick Athanaze.last_img
