Waterford High had its four-year Final Four streak snapped with a loss to Peebles in the Division IV district finals this year, but it was still an incredible season for the Wildcats, who finished 20-5 overall and 16-0 in the Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division.,Waterford was rewarded with a pair of players on the first team All-Southeast District list, one the second team and one in special mention.,In Division II, Warren saw junior Molly Grayson and sophomore Olivia Alloway both earn third team all-district honors.,On the boys side, Warren’s Seth Dennis and Waterford’s Russ Young each earned first team all-district honors.,Marietta High saw senior Austin Witucky take third team honors in Division II.

If you're familiar with Java, this is one of the biggest pain points of the language that you can try and solve with things like annotations and static analysis or maybe the optional type which eventually came out in Java 8.,Now, because this was a language that was built from Java and needing to work with Java, it had to have a really strong interop story, similar to how Scala can talk to Java compiled code or Groovy can use Java compiled code, this language needed to do the same.,So if you use a language like Scala, like Groovy, it has really good interop with code that's written in Java.,But sometimes when you're writing in Java and interacting with a library that's written in Scala or Groovy, there's things that can look a little weird and kind of have to jump through some extra hoops because of how that more powerful language works that you can't express the same thing in Java.,Now, in order to reuse a lot of the things that were present on the JVM, they added something that's common in maybe C# which is extension functions, the ability to hang additional functionality off of a type that you don't control.

But now Lawrence and thousands of other Connecticut residents are alarmed by what they perceive as a threat to their children’s’ education posed by several bills under consideration in the legislature, including one from Gov. Ned Lamont, which they believe would force or coerce communities into regionalizing their school systems or sharing superintendents.,“Small local school districts that choose to have inefficient governance structures and too many expensive superintendents can no longer expect the state to bear the costs of these decisions,” Lamont’s budget documents says.,Small districts — defined as having fewer than 10,000 residents, fewer than 2,000 students or with only one or two elementary schools — that have their own superintendent would be required to “receive direction concerning the supervision of [its] schools” from another district’s superintendent or name a ‘chief executive officer’ to oversee the schools, according to Lamont’s proposal, Senate Bill 874.,Another key portion of Lamont’s bill would give priority for bonding to larger schools and districts that pool resources, share superintendents and back-office functions.,Another aspect of the bill that is troubling for some is the establishment of a Commission on Shared School Services to develop a plan “for the redistricting or consolidation of school services and school districts.”

For Major League Baseball players, three teams are at the bottom of the standings on state taxes: the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants.Thats because California is in a league of its own on personal income taxes.,Players really get hit.No one sheds tears over the tax burdens of multimillionaire young men who are blessed with enough athleticism to become fabulously rich playing a game.But many diehard fans undoubtedly moaned because Harper didnt choose the Dodgers or Giants, two teams that made strong pitches for him.The Giants reportedly offered 12 years and $312 million, but were told theyd need to ante up more to compensate for Californias tax hit.,But that puts a California player in the National League West at a significant tax disadvantage because there are three division teams in this state: the Dodgers, Giants and Padres.,The Dodgers will play 20 away games this season in California and the players will feel its tax bite.Players for out-of-state teams also get taxed at the California rate when they play in our stadiums.Theres a softer tax hit in the American League West.,Thats because all division rivals for the Los Angeles Angels and the Oakland Athletics are in no-tax states: Seattle Mariners, Houston Astros and Texas Rangers.Theres a significant boost to players earnings being in the A.L. West vs. the N.L. West, Boras says.Repelling baseball stars isnt the worst thing about Californias income tax.

Difficulty refers to the amount of skill required by the player to progress through a game experience (Suddaby).,A skill can be defined as, “…  a combination of mental and physical effort and capabilities… [Players] can vary heavily in skill, depending on their previous experiences, motor skills, cognitive capabilities in the game, etc.” (Valerio).,Scaling difficulty could overlap with dynamic difficulty but those games can make their games easier on the fly without consulting the player.,Designed difficulty is when enemies, levels, puzzles, and other interactions are hand-crafted to provide a challenge that requires the player to use learned skills to overcome challenges in new ways.,One last way to create difficulty in this category is to add Mechanic Depth or provide the player with a challenge that changes the way they think about the currently established rules.

To maximise their bottom line, football clubs must aspire to be successful, and to do so, requires them to buy short term, liquid and measurable assets – footballer players.,To acquire football players, clubs must partake in a transfer market which dictate the prices of the assets available based on demand and supply.,The sad truth that we live in a hyper capitalist society governed by greed and in my view, football and footballer players more specifically, are merely the tip of a giant, immoral, unethical, dishonourable, corrupt and nefarious iceberg.,Mohsin (ok that wasn’t actually short after all), Dubai

I think last night confirmed what we’ve been hearing about player power at Chelsea over the last few years.,For a 24 year old keeper who has been at the club for less than a year to behave so in public, clearly disobeying and disrespecting your manager to the full glare of millions, I believe the issues are much deeper than we thought. read more
