Wolf Administration Welcomes 20 Students with Disabilities for Summer Internship Program SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Government That Works, Innovation, Press Release Harrisburg, PA – In support of the Employment First initiative to help people with disabilities find employment, the Wolf Administration is welcoming 20 Pennsylvania college students who will participate in summer internships with state agencies, while a first-of-its kind state partnership with Microsoft will promote accessibility best practices and tools.“Internships are an important way for students to gain experience in their field of study and establish relationships with potential employers,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “This program will provide valuable opportunities in public service to students with disabilities.”The students will take part in a 12-week paid internship in the Harrisburg area beginning this month. The interns will work in positions related to their academic backgrounds and career interests.Governor Wolf signed the executive order to establish the Employment First policy in March 2016 to increase competitive-integrated employment for people with disabilities and make Pennsylvania a model state when it comes to creating a climate hospitable to disabled workers.The internship program was developed by the Department of Labor and Industry’s (L&I) Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) and the Office of Administration (OA). OVR recruited college students for the inaugural class, while OA facilitated placement within state offices.“We want to thank the commonwealth’s leaders and supervisors for supporting the disability internship program and welcoming these students for the summer,” said Secretary of Administration Sharon Minnich. “We think it will be an enriching experience for everyone involved.”OVR provides vocational rehabilitation services to help persons with disabilities prepare for, obtain, or maintain employment. In 2017, the office helped place more than 9,300 OVR customers into employment, and connected with 6,000 Pennsylvania employers to achieve hiring results.“When it comes to providing employment opportunities to people with disabilities, we need to lead by example,” said L&I Secretary Jerry Oleksiak. “We are excited to work with the Office of Administration to offer this internship program for state government.”The administration also announced that Pennsylvania is the first state government to partner with Microsoft Corporation to provide training and other resources on accessibility to employees. The training will focus on tools available within Office 365 to make documents and other files accessible to people with disabilities, as well as features that can assist commonwealth employees who are themselves disabled. Employees will also have access to a help desk staffed by accessibility experts to answer questions and provide guidance. These services are being provided at no additional cost to the commonwealth.“We are incredibly excited about working with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to educate employees on how to be more inclusive and accessible using the built-in tools in Microsoft365,” said Megan Lawrence, Microsoft’s Accessibility Technical Evangelist.

Tony Olson drove to the front from the starting 13th position in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod main event. Olson took the lead from his cousin Kyle, who later retired with an overheating engine. Olson went on to record the win ahead of Dylan VanWyk and Ben Chapman. Damon got inside of his son in turn four coming to the white flag but contact was made sending the younger Murty into a spin. Officials ruled the contact initiated by the elder Murty as rough driving sending him to the back for a green, white, checkered restart. Dallon went on to record the win over Jay Schmidt and Dustin Vis. The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks saw another classic battle between Kaden Reynolds, Nathan Ballard and Brett Vanous.

Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed he will speak to Adnan Januzaj about his booking for diving during Saturday’s 3-1 win over West Ham – but he refused to condemn the teenager because of the massive number of tackles he is having to withstand. Moyes was delighted with the overall performance of his team. Danny Welbeck scored his first goal at Old Trafford since October 2012 before Januzaj made a mug of Collins to double the advantage prior to the interval. Ashley Young netted another brilliant effort in the second half so Carlton Cole’s consolation did not threaten a fourth successive win, equalling the best run of Moyes’ short reign so far. “The rhythm in attack is beginning to get better,” said Moyes. “We are beginning to create more chances. We had the chances to score maybe four or five but overall we were really pleased with how we played.” West Ham remain outside the relegation zone, but only thanks to the deficiencies of others, and could be in for a very tough season unless boss Sam Allardyce can spark some significant improvement. “It was the right result,” said Allardyce. “I can’t complain about that because our performance in the first half was not good enough. “We are not in a very good position and we are all concerned with that, owners included. “You need your best players fit and at the moment we are missing them. “It’s a difficult task for us now and it will be a long haul in terms of digging ourselves out.” Allardyce will hunt for additions in January, as will Moyes, although the United boss is not convinced he will get them. He said: “We’ll look but I wouldn’t turn around and say we’re massively sure we’ll get them because a lot of the players we’d be interested in won’t be available in January.” “Adnan is expecting a challenge from Collins,” said Moyes. “We will talk to him about it but you might be picking on the wrong person because if you look at the last two games, he has taken more tackles than any other player. “I said last week there were a lot of people having a kick at him, because he’s very difficult to mark. “He’s elusive the way he moves and it can bring defenders into tackles. “The referees have to call it right and I just hope he doesn’t get a bad one before they do.” Moyes was also concerned at a George McCartney challenge on substitute Javier Hernandez in the second half many observers felt warranted a straight red card rather than the yellow dished out by referee Mike Jones. “I thought you’d have asked about that one before Januzaj,” said Moyes. “The referee didn’t give it so I can only go on what he saw. He saw a bit of simulation in the other one but didn’t see that.” Moyes said he thought Januzaj was anticipating a challenge from James Collins when he went down. And whilst the Scot has spoken out against diving in the past, and has already censured Ashley Young for it this season, he is equally concerned about the rough treatment being meted out to the 18-year-old.

Published on April 25, 2008 at 12:00 pm On the bank of a river in Racice – an industrialized city in the Czech Republic still wearing the affects of communism, Dave Reischman flew down a bike path. The finish line appeared in sight, and excitement swelled in Reischman.A bit strange considering:a) He wasn’t actually in the race.b) The finish line was not on land. It was in the middle of the manmade river he rode alongside.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut this was the No. 11 Syracuse men’s rowing coach’s first time being involved in the international scene of men’s crew at the 1993 Rowing World Championships, coaching a qualifier for the men’s single sculling competition. And as long as Reischman’s legs could keep up with the methodic movements of every rower on the waterway, he wasn’t going to miss a race.Why else would the head coach devote time leading up to the races fixing up a rickety Ukrainian mountain bike? Why else would he put up with the ragging from senior coaches for his borderline obsessive enthusiasm for the race? Why else would he log several miles a day to watch each 2000-meter sprint?Why – Reischman knew that bike trail would provide him with a view to the quality of rowing that he’d never seen before. ‘I’d be like ‘Wow, did you see that?” said Reischman, his face still becoming wide-eyed as he describes the scene in Europe from his office in the Archbold Gymnasium 15 years later. ‘And then I’d turn and peddle back to the start and catch the next race.’That’s the fervor generated by a rowing maniac. One who prefers to spend his time picking the brain of former and current rowing stars. One who mastered terrain by bike just so he could get a better glimpse of the water. A bit geeky perhaps – after all Reischman holds a computer science degree. Then again, there’s that one time the head coach recalls he landed a computing job. All day he just fantasized about rowing. Lineups, strategies, rowing techniques. He couldn’t get it out of his head.Now he’s brought that expertise, that obsession, to SU. In 2002, Reischman took over a once-great, now floundering program. He’s turned it into the most successful sports team at Syracuse. His Varsity Eights crew has lost only one race during the regular season in the past three years. The team has won more hardware than the school had seen in its trophy case in more than a decade. ‘Rebuilding is sort of a young guy’s game sometimes,’ the 43-year-old Reischman said. ‘And I didn’t know how many more shots I’d have at it. So I figured (Syracuse) was the challenge I was looking for – I couldn’t leave it for someone else to do.’He has built up programs twice before – first with his alma mater Gonzaga and then transforming a run-of-the-mill Oregon State program into a national contender.At the time, Reischman said he looked at all the team’s that had once been considered a crew powerhouse and felt Syracuse had slipped the furthest. But after leading Oregon State to a fourth-place finish at the national championships in the spring of 2002 – that’s exactly the test Reischman wanted. The SU program’s supporters couldn’t be more pleased.‘I can’t be more satisfied with what coach Reischman has done for this team,’ said John Nicholson, editor of the Syracuse rowing alumni newsletter the ‘Orange Oar.’Last weekend, Nicholson said the rowing alumni listserv flooded the server with e-mails. Crew members from as far back as the 1950s were sending congratulations out to Reischman and the approximately 250 rowing alumni on the listserv. The Orange crew had just pulled off a win over Cornell and Navy to win the Goes Trophy. Both SU opponents were ranked near the top 10 nationally. But for the SU alumni, the win signified something much more than that. Reischman had said he didn’t believe in rebuilding seasons. Now he had proved it.Last season’s crew graduated 12 of its 16 best rowers. That senior class had previously completed back-to-back unbeaten seasons. That core had done a majority of the work turning around a program that had managed one victory in the first three seasons of Reischman’s tenure. But Reischman wasn’t going to settle for a down year.He plucked walk-ons like Tyson Bry, Brian Azeff and Mike Bagnall out of the crowd and turned them into varsity rowers, while also relying on junior Martin Etem and senior Ryan Armstrong. Reischman and his assistants built a competitive team that sped by its rivals last weekend – and in the process captured the Goes Trophy for the third consecutive year, a feat Syracuse had never achieved in the 54-year history of the race.Reischman brings a ‘fierceness’ to every race, Etem said. Reischman’s honest, blunt – not afraid to share his thoughts, including the insight he’s picked up through the years. Etem said he believes quality helps create victories. And it’s a trait others also have noticed.‘He’s a very diligent driven guy, who puts all his energy in his programs, teams,’ said Kris Sanford, SU’s women’s rowing head coach. She toured Reischman around the athletic facilities, the first time he came to campus, while considering the Syracuse job in 2002. ‘I think it came across very clearly he was somebody who liked to build programs,’ Sanford said.Walking through Manley Field House and the boathouses with Sanford, Reischman said he could sense potential. But he realized he’d have to change nearly every single aspect of the program to discover that capability. First, he noticed a disconnect on the squad. Reischman wanted his players to have a certain attitude. He got rid of the ones who didn’t and implemented his own regime. He applied a little bit of everything he had learned over the years. Everything from watching stroke counts while peddling his bike in Czech to what he picked up form mentors on his path to Syracuse. Throughout his 21 years of coaching – including 19 as a head coach – Reischman remembers studying and apprenticing from older coaches. But his greatest mentor was the first he met. Harvard head coach Harry Parker, who Reischman described as the ‘Vince Lombardi’ of rowing coaches, took Reischman on as an intern when he graduated from college.‘He’s pretty green when he first came,’ Parker said. ‘He was very observant. He showed very good judgment. Even then he had confidence in himself and his ability to teach. That’s important.’Even today, Reischman likes to pick the brain of the 71-year-old Parker. The two still go rowing together – one of the most recent tours was at the prestigious Henley Regatta in England – discussing their lives and the sport that dominates it.Reischman imparts on the SU crew members a focus on attitude and an intense work ethic. Even the alumni get a taste of it. Reischman will let them ride alongside him during practices for some in-depth perspective on how the head coach ticks.‘When I sit down with Coach Dave you know his heart and his intellect are with this team and this program,’ said Jason Premo, president of the Syracuse Alumni Rowing Association. ‘And his knowledge of this sport is beyond anyone I’ve ever spoken with.’ With the established success come heightened expectations. Reischman talked about changing the ‘institutional memory’ of a school used to losing when he arrived at Syracuse. Now that he’s created that atmosphere, Reischman knows he’ll have to deal with the opposite – a program that always expects to win. Naturally, Reischman plans to do that. He guarantees his expectations are higher than any alumni. Due to all the recent successes, Reischman said he’s optimistic about the program’s direction. He’s less animated now down at the raceways, adding he bikes to view his own races but usually not other heats.Reischman uses his spare time on race day to relax. The head coach owns a Gary Fisher mountain bike for riding with other coaches alongside the water, but he now prefers to cycle around in order to unwind between races.Still, as he rides around, the fervor for the sport he can’t get enough of churns in his mind. Reischman said Syracuse needs to be one of the top six boats to qualify for the Grand Final. The Orange needs to compete for a national championship every year.‘Yeah, we’ve had some success,’ Reischman said. ‘And we’re happy about that. But I don’t know if anybody in the program is satisfied. There’s plenty more speed to gain.’email@example.com Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Junior attack Nicky Galasso will miss the 2013 season with a lower-body injury and surgery, SU Athletics announced in a press release Tuesday.Galasso transferred from North Carolina before the beginning of the semester earlier this month. He scored 56 points off 24 goals and 32 assists in his ACC Freshman of the Year season in 2011 before playing limited minutes in 2012 due to the lingering effects of breaking his foot in Nov. 2011.He was expected to contend for a starting spot this season.“It’s tough on the group, I think it’s tough on Nick and his family and the staff, too,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “We were excited to see what he could do out there.”Galasso suffered the season-ending injury last week in practice, according to Syracuse men’s lacrosse information director Mike Morrison. He will be able to redshirt and retain his year of eligibility.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Related Stories Transfers provide boost, integrate into team Published on January 29, 2013 at 1:24 pm Contact Jacob: firstname.lastname@example.org | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+
Published on March 14, 2017 at 3:35 pm Contact Matt: email@example.com No. 6 Syracuse was decimated on Tuesday afternoon by No. 3 Florida, 19-12, in Gainesville. This marked the Orange’s (7-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) second straight loss after it fell on Saturday to No. 1 Maryland. It’s the first time since April 2015 that SU has lost two games in a row.The Orange defense struggled all game, allowing 19 goals on 35 shots, 31 of which were on goal. UF (6-1) was led by six goals from Lindsey Ronbeck and five goals from Sydney Pirreca while three other Gators added two goals each to the tally.SU goalie Asa Goldstock was pulled from the game before halftime after allowing 12 goals on only four saves. The freshman’s 25 percent save percentage was her worst mark in the net this season and Tuesday’s loss marked her second straight.Goldstock was replaced by sophomore Bri Stahrr, who allowed seven goals on eight saves, good for a 53.5 percent save margin, her best of the season. Tuesday’s game was Stahrr’s longest appearance in the net for the Orange this season, playing the entire second half for SU.The Orange failed to put much offense together in the game and four of its five first-half goals came via free-position shots. SU led the free-position margin on the game, 14 to six, but was otherwise outshot by the Gators, mustering 30 shots to UF’s 35.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU again won the draw control margin, 18 to 14, but had 22 turnovers to the Gators’ 16.Riley Donahue led the Orange with four goals, behind five shots and two free-position shots.

Syracuse’s conference winless drought continued on Friday after the Orange (3-4, 0-3 Atlantic Coast) fell to Pittsburgh (5-2, 2-1 ACC), 27-20, in the Carrier Dome.SU started slow on offense again, falling behind 24-6 by halftime. Starting quarterback Tommy DeVito entered the game banged up and his health only further deteriorated, as the redshirt sophomore was taken out of the game for good in the second quarter in favor of Clayton Welch. Welch played well in his stead, sparking the Syracuse offense and bringing the Orange within a touchdown late in the fourth, but the comeback attempt came too late and SU dropped below .500.Here’s whose stock is up or down after Syracuse’s loss to the Panthers.STOCK UPAdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter attempting just eight passes since transferring to SU from Butte College in 2017, Welch set career-highs across the board Saturday. He took over at quarterback for the final two-plus quarters and served as the offense’s lifeblood, connecting on a 94-yard touchdown pass to Taj Harris and leading the team in rushing. During a game in which their starting quarterback went down with an injury and they fell behind by three possessions in the first half, the Orange very well could’ve written the game off and looked forward to their matchup with Florida State. But Welch gave Syracuse and its fans the energy they needed, despite the comeback falling short. SU head coach Dino Babers indicated that DeVito will be the starter against the Seminoles if he’s ready to go, but Welch’s performance on Friday must give Babers some confidence should DeVito be forced to leave again.Syracuse’s versatile defensive tackle had one of the best games of his career against the Panthers, totaling five tackles, two for loss. Black also had two of SU’s three sacks in the game, tying his career-high that he set in against Liberty. The second of his quarterback takedowns came on a key third down in the third quarter, when he chased down Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett and forced the Panthers to punt. The sack gave the Orange possession and ultimately a field goal attempt in a two-possession game, though Andre Szmyt hooked the kick. Black has played well this season as part of SU’s group of defensive tackles that’s had to make up for the loss of Chris Slayton, who was drafted to the NFL earlier this year.STOCK DOWNWhile DeVito is listed as the starter on Syracuse’s depth chart leading into Florida State, he was forced out of Friday’s game partially due to injury and game plan. He was sacked six times in the first half alone by the Panthers, who significantly diminished both DeVito’s health and confidence. Babers said after the game that he knows who the better quarterback is, but Friday’s game marked the third straight that DeVito looked less than 100 percent. With Clayton Welch’s competent performance against Pittsburgh and the Seminoles looming on the horizon, Babers might have to think about allowing DeVito to recover as opposed to risking another setback.The loss to Pittsburgh drops Syracuse below .500 this late in the season for the first time since 2017, when the Orange finished 4-8 following a 4-3 start. In order to make a bowl game, SU will have to win three of its final five games, starting with a road contest on Saturday against Florida State in which Syracuse is currently a 10.5-point underdog. Should the Orange fall to the Seminoles as expected, they’ll be forced to finish their season 3-1 or 4-0 after a slate that includes back-to-back road games and finishes against No. 25 Wake Forest. While SU certainly has the talent to reach a bowl game, its offensive issues have prevented it from proving thatwith any consistency through seven games this season.In what has become somewhat of a weekly tradition at this point, SU’s offensive line struggled and allowed its quarterback to be sacked a number of times. This time it was Pittsburgh that infiltrated the Orange backfield on seemingly every other snap, and this time Welch faced the heat in addition to DeVito. In total, Syracuse’s quarterbacks were sacked nine times, boosting the season total to an FBS-worst 35 — more than 0-7 Akron and 1-6 Old Dominion, who have both allowed 32. The Orange’s offensive line problems can be blamed on a number of different factors, such as Sam Heckel’s opening-game injury and general inexperience. But at the end of the day, there has been little to no improvement as the season has progressed and SU’s offense — from its running game to DeVito’s health — has struggled because of it.
