Villanova and Jay Wright Have Some Big Fans in Ocean City

first_imgVillanova head mens’ basketball coach Jay Wright (Photo credit: NBC Sports) By Tim KellyOur corner of Nova Nation in Ocean City is one quite familiar to Jay Wright.The head coach of Villanova’s Final Four-bound mens’ basketball team is a longtime OC summer resident and can be spotted around town as frequently as the schedule of a big-time hoops coach allows.At the store or the gym, at the beach or the boards, Jay Wright sees plenty of Villanova flags and T-shirts in OC and is comfortable moving around town. Another local Wright haunt: the tennis courts.The courts at Ocean City High School also happen to be a second home of sorts for Villanova alum Candice Kolins a year-round Ocean City resident who frequently crosses paths with the future Hall of Fame coach.As Candice Carlin, the former Moorestown High School tennis star went on to become the number one singles and doubles player at Villanova, playing from 2003 to 2007. Her doubles partner and co-captain as a senior was Leigh Ann Reilly (now Weill,) the niece of Jay Wright.“He came to our matches and was always complimentary and supportive,” Candice said. “He is such a nice guy and a class act.”Following her graduation, Kolins’ tennis connection with Wright continued. Her sister Kristen – a Division 1 tennis star in her own right at Moorestown and Princeton – was the director of the OC summer tennis programs who coordinated a father-son tournament a few years back in which Jay Wright participated. Working with Kristen that summer was Jay Wright’s daughter, Reilly.Candice and Kristen’s father Dan Carlin teamed with Kristen’s husband Rob Vogelbacher to defeat Jay and his son Taylor.Jay Wright (center, white shirt) with (from left) Dan Carlin, Kristen Vogelbacher, Candice Kolins, Adele Carlin and Rob Vogelbacher at the Ocean City public tennis courts.It was a hard-earned win over two pretty good tennis players, Candice said. “Jay is a good player. His strokes are good and he has a really good serve. He is just a great athlete who is probably pretty good at any sport he tries. Of course he doesn’t have time to play much (or he would be even better). His son is a good player,   too,” Kolins said.This weekend, much of America’s sports attention will be focused on San Antonio, where Wright’s Wildcats (34-4) face Kansas (31-7) in the second national semifinal game at 8:49 p.m. following the Loyola-Chicago vs. Michigan matchup. The winners will advance to the championship game on Monday night at 9:20.Kolins’ and her family will be among the multitudes cheering for her Alma Mater to win its second national championship in three years.A working mom, she and husband Sean are the proud parents of one-year-old Sienna. Candice launched an active wear company, Cruise Control, in 2007. Kristen joined as a co-owner the following year. In addition to offering a complete line of workout, tennis and leisure wear, Cruise Control is the supplier to the Philadelphia Freedoms, the World Team Tennis franchise which shares a Pavilion at Villanova home court with the Wildcats’ hoop squads.Candice Kolins (left) and sister Kristen Vogelbacher model tennis attire offered by their apparel company, Cruise Control. The complete product line may be perused at www.cruisecontrolgear.comSean Kolins, a graduate of Rutgers; U.S. Naval Academy grad Vogelbacher and the womens’ parents Adele and Dan Carlin have all become ‘Nova fans, Candice said. “And we might have the newest little Wildcat in the making the way Sienna has been running and jumping around,” said Sean. A few months after Sienna made her debut on planet Earth, Kristen gave birth to Bobby, who will soon celebrate his first birthday. Kristen, Rob and Bobby reside in Somers Point.The family members, minus the babies, were together in 2016, when a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Kris Jenkins provided the winning margin over North Carolina to secure the ‘Cats first NCAA crown since 1985.“I jumped out of my chair and started screaming, and spilled my drink,” Candice said. “We were all kind of going crazy.”She remarked that she would love nothing more than to do it again this year, during the Cats’ third Final Four appearance under Wright. They were the top-ranked men’s team for much of the season, won the Big East regular season championship and were awarded the top seed in their NCAA regional bracket. Las Vegas installed them as a five point favorite against Kansas.“Villanova is a great school and Nova Nation is such a great community,” Candice said. “I’m just proud to be a part of it and so proud that I’m a Wildcat.”last_img read more

CUNA provides memorandum on UBIT refunds

first_imgCUNA has asked outside counsel, Foley & Lardner LLP, to prepare a memo with general information on how credit unions can claim tax refunds on income exempt from Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT) and what a credit union might expect if it files for a refund.CUNA does not give tax or accounting advice to individual credit unions, Kathy Thompson underscores in a recent CompBlog entry about the memo.However, Thompson, CUNA’s chief compliance officer, says that after credit unions’ hard-won concession from the Internal Revenue Service last March, any state-chartered credit union considering filing for a UBIT refund may want to discuss the contents of the Foley & Lardner memo with its tax adviser. Foley & Lardner has a history of assisting credit unions in this area.After years of challenges by CUNA, the state credit union leagues and credit unions, the IRS in March 2014 conceded that certain types of income earned by state-chartered credit unions are exempt from unrelated business income taxes. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

No excuses from boss Dalglish after Liverpool are beaten by Fulham

first_imgLiverpool boss Kenny Dalglish made no excuses after his team’s 1-0 defeat at home to Fulham.An own goal by Martin Skrtel gave the Whites their first ever top-flight win at Anfield.The result angered Dalglish, who rested a number of players ahead of his team’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.“I don’t think that can be described as a performance,” Dalglish told Sky.“I thought it would be fair to give them an opportunity to get some minutes on the pitch with an important game on Saturday, but the performance and the attitude was very poor and that’s not like us.”More reaction to follow later.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Solar Eclipses Unique to Earth, SETI Researcher “Finds”

first_imgLike many before him, Seth Shostak pondered the significance of total solar eclipses for the one planet with observers to appreciate them.  “OK, I’ve done the math,” the SETI Institute director said for SETI Thursday on Space.com.  “What you always suspected might be true … is true: namely that the best place in the solar system to see a total solar eclipse is Earth.”    Shostak appeared briefly in the intelligent-design film The Privileged Planet, which makes a case that the universe and earth are designed for discovery, not only for habitability.  An evolutionist, Shostak was not promoting the premise of the film, but merely pointing out that unless the the earth were very special – miraculous almost – we should expect that other beings like us would inhabit the universe.  Shostak subsequently tried to differentiate the work of SETI from that of intelligent design, however (see 12/03/2005) – a comparison made in another Illustra film, Unlocking the Mystery of Life.  Undoubtedly he has been dogged by questions from listeners about how SETI differs from the principles of design detection promoted by I.D.    In this article on solar eclipses, however, Shostak’s own research arrived at two similar conclusions stated in the film: (1) solar eclipses have allowed humans to make significant scientific discoveries, such as the detection of helium and confirmation of Einstein’s theory of relativity, and (2) the presence of a moon like ours able to produce eclipses is probably linked to the hability of our planet.  “If tides really do encourage life, then worlds with tides similar to ours are also likely to enjoy total eclipses,” he conjectured.  “Maybe eclipse chasers are a common cosmic breed.”He came to the same conclusions because the conclusions are scientifically reasonable and based on observational facts.  What is shameful is that Shostak gave no credit for prior research done more thoroughly on this question by Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards in the book The Privileged Planet.  He pretends as if he were the first to think of these things.  He obviously knows that he appears in the film, and undoubtedly has watched it and understands its notoriety in the mainstream scientific community.  So we challenge Seth Shostak to come forward and admit that he got his best ideas (that design detection is a scientifically valid reasoning process, and that the earth is designed for discovery) from his predecessors in the intelligent design movement.  Intellectual property demonstrates the ontological character of information.  Acknowledging someone else’s intellectual contribution is the only “ethical” thing to do (and ethics don’t evolve).(Visited 39 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Aiming higher

first_imgOil plant explodes in Pampanga town ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes Garcia and Yap have always rued about missing the playoffs in the third conference last season—a bitter taste they keep in their mouths for motivation to reach for loftier goals.“We’d want an advantage going into the next round,” said Garcia, whose squad improved to 7-1—the best record in the league—after their conquest of the Hotshots.The top two teams at the end of the elimination round are assured of a twice-to-beat bonus in the playoffs, an incentive that Garcia feels they can achieve if they can stretch their run of solid performances.“If we want to make it far, we have to be consistent,” he said. “Basically, [we] played well [on Wednesday]. But I think we could have done better.”Yap, who made the pivotal play in a nip-and-tuck endgame duel  against the Hotshots, feels like Rain or Shine’s recent clutch performances will sharpen the team up for brutal playoff wars.ADVERTISEMENT PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Before beating Magnolia, Rain or Shine also outlasted erstwhile leader Phoenix.“I like it,” he said of the intense contests. “Come playoffs, we’ll be used to all of it.”It was doubly sweet for Yap, who came up strong against the team he powered to a Grand Slam in 2014.
