Both sides pushed hard to add to the score line but were unable to convert the chances that came along until the 32nd minute when Orchard failed to clear the ball and it fell to Shane Ferry and he lobbed the ball in at the back post. Orchard pulled a goal back on 36 minutes when Raymond Gorman headed home from close range.

Men’s Soccer Ties Northern Illinois, 2-2, Tuesday Night

first_img PDF Box Score Next Game: Live Stats ESPN3 NIU evened the score with two goals by Nick Markanich within the span of almost three minutes. Both goals were assisted by his brother, Anthony Markanich. The first came in the 73rd minute (73:50) and the second in the 76th minute (76:09). Full Schedule Roster Watch Live Bradley 10/20/2018 – 7 PM Enzugusi ripped a rocket at the goal in the 87th minute, but it went wide right as the teams went to overtime. In the first extra period, Brown recorded two clutch saves on three shots by the Huskies. Drake wasn’t able to get a shot off in the first overtime, but sophomore Ryan Johnston (West Des Moines, Iowa) quickly went to work in the second extra period. Johnston had his shot saved by Dziedzic 23 seconds in. Later, the teams traded shots as Ciszewski had his blocked and a NIU attempt went high. The Huskies would get two more later, but Brown saved the last one as the teams settled for the third tie in the all-time series.   Preview DEKALB, Ill. – Northern Illinois scored two late goals in regulation against the Drake University men’s soccer team Tuesday evening as the teams battled to a 2-2 draw in DeKalb, Ill.”A very competitive battle tonight against a very good NIU team,” said Drake head coach Gareth Smith. “Both teams went toe to toe and invested a lot into the game. Although disappointed we didn’t take all three points, there were lot of positive from our performance. We played very well for long periods of the game and deserved to be in the lead as we created a number of goal scoring chances.”Drake (6-4-2) went up early as junior Antonio Sanchez (Iowa City, Iowa) scored his second goal of the season in the eighth minute (8:22). Junior goalkeeper Jared Brown (Aurora, Ontario) sent a blast that redshirt senior Steven Enna (Overland Park, Kan.) headed from midfield to Sanchez as he took care of the rest of the work, going 1v1 with the Northern Illinois (7-5-1) goalie, Konrad Dziedzic, and beating Dziedzic for the game’s first goal.Sophomore Leroy Enzugusi (Marion, Iowa) added to the Bulldogs’ lead with his team-leading seventh goal in the 69th minute (69:52). Enzugusi flicked in a ball from inside the six-yard box after an initial shot by Ciszewski off a corner kick by redshirt junior Cole Poppen (Ankeny, Iowa). Story Links Brown finished with a career-high 13 saves as the Huskies recorded 29 shots, including 16 on goal.”Great to see Antonio get on the score sheet as we have challenged him to have a bigger impact in the final third and I thought tonight he was excellent,” Smith said. “Leroy is also in great form. If we had a little more quality in our final pass and we can improve the timing of his movement in the final third he will score even more goals. Although we created two uncharacteristic goals, a lot of creativity has to go to our back line who showed good discipline in our defensive shape and made it very difficult for NIU front three who are a very dynamic group and dangerous. We need to develop our ability to close out games as we are scoring a lot of goals and more than enough to win games, but need to be more mature/experienced in how to manage games to see out the win.” Drake hosts Bradley Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the team’s second-to-last home game this season.

How do aircraft “back-up” from the gate by themselves?

first_imgVietjet’s interline agreement with Qatar will make it easier for passengers to connect with the Gulf carrier. ApprovedIn a fully approved procedure, an aircraft can back away from the gate under its own power under reverse thrust. However, before the jet can move backwards, it must roll forward slightly before the reversers can be deployed, and to move off of the tire’s ‘flat spot’ created when the aircraft sits parked on the ramp for any length of time.A critical component necessary for this procedure is the ramp agent or ground marshaller. After engines are started with the jet still parked at the gate, the marshaller signals the pilot in command when to move forward, and then using a rotating motion rapidly moving the signaling wands one-over-the-other, indicates exactly when to deploy the reversers and back away from the gate. When the aircraft has safely cleared the ramp area, the reversers are closed, throttles are brought back to idle, and the airliner can then taxi out to the runway.

Tips on Developing EarthCaches in U.S. National Parks

first_imgEditor’s Note: The content in this article were first presented by Stuart West and Marcia Keener of the National Park Service during the 1st International EarthCache Mega-Event in Maine, USA on 2 September 2012. Share with your Friends:More Set up an in-person appointment with that person if possible.Be patient. If park staff are unfamiliar with geocaching or are new to this request, it may not be clear who will handle cache requests – and approval will always be interdisciplinary. In other words, although there may be one “lead,” several people may need to be consulted to get permission.Be informative. Many people do not have experience with EarthCaches. Some have had or heard about negative experiences with geocaches so they may or may not want to learn more. Perhaps you can demonstrate or teach the activity to park staff.Be flexible. Provide the coordinates you plan on using. Better yet, walk to your proposed location. You may get good feedback and answer questions in the field.  Park staff will consider safety, resource damage, and possible theft of archeological or natural resources.Be informed about the park’s purpose. Explain how your proposed cache, especially an EarthCache, might support the mission and help draw and teach visitors about the park’s resources, or that park’s story about our Nation’s heritage. The Lowly Worm EarthCache can be discovered in Shenandoah National ParkBy Stuart West and Marcia Keener of the National Park Service, Edited by Jenn SevaAre you interested in developing EarthCaches on lands managed by the National Park Service (NPS)?  Our friends at the NPS provided pointers so that more EarthCaches might be permitted. Remember that geocaches are prohibited on these lands until they are permitted. You must ask for permission first. There is no guarantee a request to place a cache will be fulfilled. But odds are good. To date, close to 75 EarthCaches have been permitted on NPS managed lands!BasicsThe NPS was created in 1916. Those of you doing the math will realize that 2016 will represent quite the milestone!  Today, there are nearly 400 units, like parks and scenic trails, within the NPS.  Although we commonly call them all national parks, only 58 have that official designation. The complete list details all NPS units. There are national monuments, national seashores, national rivers, national historic sites, and the list goes on. For simplification, we will call all NPS units “national parks” in this article.Why is this NPS designation important? Because that gives you an idea of the purpose of a park and a clue as to whether or not geocaching might be permitted. Why was a particular national park established? Do you understand its history? What must managers do to protect it? What are the interpretive or education plans? How might  you help carry out their mission?National parks are managed to a high standard, but do differ on types of activities that are allowed. The  likelihood of getting a geocache placed in a national battlefield park is much less likely than a national recreation area (NRA).  National battlefield parks may not even permit kite flying or Frisbee throwing because those activities are deemed inappropriate over the gravesites and hallowed grounds of those who have died for our freedoms. Conversely, geocaching may be deemed appropriate for some areas in a national recreation area.  Always keep basics like the park’s mission in mind when thinking of proposing a geocache.National parks are run much like cities.  Both have a police force, fire department, and rescue squad. They both have roads to repair and they both have educators, buildings to maintain, and trash to manage. Detroit is managed differently than Los Angeles, and LA is not managed exactly like New York, Atlanta or New Orleans. No two parks are managed exactly the same way. Cities and parks face a variety of unique challenges based upon climate, topography, government infrastructure, job opportunities, and available funding. Consider that a city exists in a particular area for specific reason. A national park is set aside to protect a specific natural or cultural resource.So, you have an idea for an EarthCache in a nearby national park.The following tips will likely save you a lot of time and effort.First task is to find out who will be your contact in the park before you put too much time into scoping out a possible cache location or creating text.In some parks, your point of contact will be the Chief Ranger, the person who is responsible for managing law enforcement in the park.It may be the Chief of Interpretation, responsible for education and information.The Chief of Resource Management may be your contact especially when plants and wildlife health are of concern.It is usually one of these three chiefs that will be your point of contact.  In smaller parks some chiefs may manage multiple disciplines, making your search easier.In some parks, the duty of managing Geocaches may fall to the Special Park Uses Coordinator (people often have numerous duties or roles in parks), especially if that park requires a permit for placing a cache. Everyone in the park reports to the park superintendent or manager. Next StepsDetermine whether you need a Special Use Permit by discussing the proposal and applying for one if necessary.When proposing an EarthCache, remind managers that EarthCaches were developed in partnership between the Geological Society of America, the NPS and be mindful of other responsibilities that park staff have. Give them ample time to review your proposal. Gentle reminders might be appropriate if many weeks have gone by.Remember that managers have the full right to approve or deny the application, have final say over content, and can insist that a cache be removed if there is a problem.After you get park permission, submit your plans to  Your EarthCache description must be reviewed by the park staff prior to final submission. Federal Regulations That Affect Traditional GeocachesEarthCaches focus on geoscience feature of our Earth and so do not need a container like traditional geocaches do. National parks enforce the regulations listed within Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations (36 CFR) when caches use physical containers. This is in violation of established regulations until permission is granted by the park superintendent and written within the Superintendent’s Compendium, the document of park-specific regulations. Two sections of 36 CFR are typically used to enforce park prohibitions against physical geocaches. A third regulation, 36 CFR §2.1 Preservation of natural, cultural, and archeological resources, has also been cited in cases where geocachers disturb the environment to conceal their caches. The two most common violations cited are violation of a park closure and abandoned property:36 CFR §1.5 Closures and Public Use Limits … based upon a determination that such action is necessary for the … protection of environmental or scenic values, protection of natural or cultural resources … , or the avoidance of conflict among visitor use activity, the superintendent may: (2) … Impose conditions or restrictions on a use or activity.36 CFR §2.2 (a) Property:  The following are prohibited: (2) Leaving property unattended for longer than 24 hours except in locations where longer time periods have been designated or in accordance with conditions established by the superintendent.Again, permission from park managers is required before any geocache can be placed on national park lands. Caches using physical components may be best in developed areas or requested near visitor centers.See stories on successful placement of physical caches in North Cascades and a Do-It-Yourself GeoTrail turned GeoTour.Reference Material Read the submittal guidelines linked from the main navigation.
