Board of Education to Look at Blair High School’s Plan Targeting Underachievers

first_img Pasadena Unified’s Board of Education is scheduled to discuss whether or not to approve the Single Plan for Student Achievement for Blair High School at Thursday night’s special meeting.The plan aims to better student achievement by targeting underachieving subgroups with more effective teaching strategies, according to the school board’s agenda.Each school is required to come up with their own unique achievement plan each year, according to Hilda Ramirez, spokesperson for Pasadena Unified School District. However, the board will only discuss Blair High School’s plan during this meeting.“Most of the plans were done last fiscal year, but Blair’s is being taken up separately,” Ramirez said. “The one on this agenda is really only to look at the approval for Blair’s plan.”All California schools must tailor their plan to meet the individual educational needs of students, according to Ramirez.“All school accountability plans look at student achievement,” said Ramirez. “They look at the data from the past years and then the plans are revised annually accordingly. They address specific actions that are meant to increase achievement for all students.”The Board meeting is ser to start Thursday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. in the Elbie J. Hickambottom Board Room at 351 South Hudson Avenue in Pasadena.

Mayweather Jr. Dismisses Rematch with Pacquiao

first_imgFloyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao have been trading blows on social media, with the Filipino raising the possibility of a rematch, but the unbeaten American shutting down the prospect of a fight.Pacquiao beat Keith Thurman via a split decision in Las Vegas over the weekend to become the new WBA super welterweight champion and his former opponent was in the crowd.However, Mayweather has said he was only there on business with his advisor Al Haymon, who represents Pacquiao. “I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee!” he put on Instagram.Referencing their previous bout, which he won on points in 2015, Mayweather continued by saying: “I beat you mentally, physically and financially!”The former five-division world champion also expressed frustration at the situation.“[Pacquiao’s] entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name and it’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and clickbait,” he added.“Y’all hate the fact that a black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating the odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments.”Pacquiao, who serves as a senator in his native Philippines, responded on Twitter and hinted at a potential rematch.“You come to my fight and then use my name in a post but I’m the one that is trying to stay relevant?” the 40-year-old said.“If you want to be relevant again…. #MayPac2.”Mayweather then hit back saying: “Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real boss would do!”Pacquiao then said: “Excuse me Floyd, your name has not been on any of my PBC contracts. But if you would like to be on the next one, I will have one drawn up and sent to you. #CounterfeitMoney.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Floyd Mayweatherlast_img read more

Tommy DeVito leads Syracuse to 30-7 win over Florida State

first_imgTommy DeVito ran forward, muscling his way through defenders. No matter who on Florida State tried to make a tackle, they fell at DeVito’s feet. The redshirt freshman plowed on, trekking through the defense for what seemed like miles, but what was really only eight yards.When he found the end zone, a place that had eluded him in his action in Syracuse’s first two games, he threw his hands up in the air to signal a touchdown, and 37,457 fans soon followed suit.“My number was just called,” DeVito said. “You just have to go out there, have fun and play football.”It had been 52 years since Syracuse (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat Florida State (1-2, 0-2). Floyd Little powered through the Seminoles in that 1966 win, carrying the Orange on his back for 193 yards, in his final game at Archbold Stadium. This Saturday evening, when the first half proved to be a defensive stalemate, a redshirt freshman backup quarterback, DeVito, led the Orange from a 3-0 lead to a 30-7 domination of one of the country’s most historic teams when his starter went down with an injury.“He’s a great player,” Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois said of DeVito. “He came out here and did what he needed to do.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor the first quarter-and-a-half, Syracuse thoroughly outplayed the Seminoles. The Orange recorded eight first downs while limiting FSU to just one and outgained them by over 70 yards. Francois was just 2-of-9 through the air, yet Syracuse only led 3-0.Eric Dungey and the SU offense marched all the way down to Florida State’s one-yard line in the first quarter, but they were unable to punch the ball in for a touchdown on three consecutive run plays.Toward the end of the second quarter, while trying to run for a first down, Dungey slid on a quarterback run and was hit on the helmet by a Florida State defender after the slide. FSU was called for a personal foul and Dungey did not re-enter the game.Dungey had been having some trouble seeing before that play, SU head coach Dino Babers said. An apparent finger to the eye blurred Dungey’s vision for several plays.“Things happen in piles,” Babers said. “You could see one or two plays where I’m looking at him like ‘Where’s the ball going. That looked kind of weird.’ And then I’m like ‘Come here, let me talk to you.’”Dungey repeatedly tried to re-enter the game, putting his helmet back on, joining huddles and even telling Babers he could “fight through it,” Babers said, but Dungey would not play another snap and didn’t appear to come out of the locker room for the second half.After the hit to the helmet, DeVito played the rest of the way, and aside from another sequence of three failed rush attempts on the goal-line by running backs, DeVito led the offense spectacularly.On his second full drive of the game, DeVito led the Orange to a touchdown, running the ball in himself, rumbling over defenders to cross the goal-line.Tommy DeVito ran the ball in from three yards out in the third quarter for his first collegiate touchdown. Colin Davy | Staff PhotographerOn his third drive, just minutes after his touchdown, DeVito fooled the entire FSU defense with a fake throw while handing the ball off to Jarveon Howard, who rushed up the middle for 46 yards on his first carry of the day.Howard never knew that he would even see the field until that drive. SU offensive coordinator Mike Lynch told Howard he’d go in just seconds before the play.“(Lynch) just came over and said ‘Be ready, you’re going in this series,’” Howard said, “‘It’s your time, what are you about to do?’”He did exactly as DeVito had done.After recording his first career touchdown on the drive before, DeVito threw his first passing touchdown to Ravian Pierce on the play after Howard’s rush. The Carrier Dome boomed.“We were in a race to get over seven points to see if we could have a chance to win this game,” Babers said. “It wasn’t like whoever came in the game had to be outstanding … I just thought if they came in and managed the game we would have a chance.”In five minutes DeVito led the offense to enough points to win the game, and by the end of the fourth quarter, all eyes were locked on the backup quarterback who led the Orange to a 23-point rout over the Seminole defense.In his first two games, DeVito struggled with his deep ball and his short throw accuracy. Against Western Michigan and Wagner, DeVito completed just five of 14 passes for 65 yards. Saturday afternoon against FSU, DeVito completed 11 of 16 passes for 144 yards, a passing touchdown and rushed for a touchdown, too. His quarterback rating of 165 nearly doubled Dungey’s 88.7, and he nearly doubled Dungey’s passing yards as well.While his first two appearances did not translate into personal success, they were the reason for his success against the Seminoles, DeVito said.“I think (they) helped me a lot as far as being comfortable,” DeVito said. “I haven’t played much football because I redshirted last year, so I haven’t played in a while. It was good to get my feet wet, and when my number got called today, I felt a lot more comfortable being back there.”Babers made it clear, as he has all season, that Dungey is the team’s leader, and that this Saturday he just needed DeVito to come in and manage the game, not to be Eric Dungey.But with the Seminoles still in striking distance, SU great Donovan McNabb on the sidelines and an opportunity in hand, DeVito shined, defeating one of the nation’s greatest programs with a trigger-happy arm and a fearlessness rivaling Dungey’s.“This game put us on the map,” Babers said in the locker room following the game.This game put Tommy DeVito on the map.

Huskies dominate Wolves in game 3

first_imgThe Huskies got goals from 8 different players, and got all but three skaters on the scoresheet (even Zack Blain had an assist). Fort St. John also clicked on special teams, scoring on 4 of 6 powerplay chances, and killing 6 of 7 Slave Lake advantages. S.L. goaltender Travis Chartier, who had been impenitrable in game two’s overtime, and solid overall in the first two games, looked shakey all game long, but also faced quality scoring chances all night, something the Wolves had limited so well in Slave Lake. After the game, Dustin Heitman, who took a high-stick, and had swollen lip and cheek to go with his goal, said he wasn’t too worried about things getting out hand in game four. “Not really, unless there’s a score like there was tonight,” he said. “Most of the guys in this league are pretty good – [they have] a lot of respect.” Listen to a post-game interview with Jon Zacks and Huskies coach Bob Kalb. [asset|aid=1027|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=8561d8db333df5b3fd1a72cc950b3a3f-bob-SL3_1_Pub.mp3] And so, the teams will face off for game four on Saturday night (8pm) at the NPA. The Wolves will need to refocus and find their game, or they’ll be facing the long bus ride home without getting a chance at a decisive game five. * Those in attendance at game four are also invited to submit their votes for their favourite and most exciting Husky awards.Advertisement The Slave Lake Wolves gave everything they had in their double OT game-two win. Or at least, it sure seemed like it in game 3. The Huskies dismantled the Wolves on Friday night, spending the vast majority of the game in the offensive zone, cycling the puck with ease, and making five-on-five play look at times like a powerplay. Cody Kalb opened the scoring, when Payden Wongstedt stickhandled into the offensive zone, at feed Kalb at the side of the net. Cody fanned on his first attempt, but stayed on the puck as he drifted past the net, and slid it underneath Travis Chartier. 30 seconds later, Dustin Heitman made it 2-0, when he converted a breakaway with a beautiful move to the backhand. Slave Lake would try to get back in it, when a Colter Tkach point shot hit Cash Brinkworth in front, and eluded Zack Blain. But, it would be the only offence for the Wolves, on an otherwise long night. Linden Apsassin rounded out the first period scoring, taking his time on the blue line, and then firing a wrister through traffic and past Chartier. – Advertisement -The second period would be all FSJ. Kyle Porter made it 4-1, when he blocked a shot, barreled down the right wing, took a backhander, and then buried the rebound. Kole Norris, back in the lineup after missing the first two games, got on the scoresheet when he banged home a bouncing puck. Norris’ goal would mean the hook for Chartier, who was replaced by Curtis Malbuef. Malbuef’s stay in goal would be brief. 9 seconds after replacing Chartier, he let in the first shot he faced – a backhander from Jordan Hartnell. It was Hartnell’s second goal ever as a Husky, and gave the fourth line a goal each in the game. 2 minutes later, Kole Norris converted another loose puck, sending Malbuef to the bench, and Chartier back into the game. Cody Hildebrand would round out the second period scoring, finishing off a nice cycling shift when he slid home a Kole Norris centring pass. Luke McInerney opened the scoring in the third, when he flew down the left-hand side, and fired a snap-shot through Chartier. Soon after, Wolf Nick Plourde, who had been agitating Cody Kalb all game, finally got his fight, but got a little more than he could handle. Kalb won a decision in the fight, bringing more cheers from the fans, but resulting in the ejection of not just Kalb, but also Payden Wongstedt, for not staying at the bench during the fight. Cody Hildebrand’s second of the game finished off the scoring, with 4 minutes remaining. When the dust settled, the final score was 10-1 FSJ. Advertisementlast_img read more

Art Wilson: Ravel likely entry in Derby

first_img“He’ll probably ship on Feb. 26, 27 or 28,” Currin said. Stormello, who could meet Kentucky Derby favorite Nobiz Like Showbiz in the Fountain of Youth, worked one mile at Hollywood Park on Friday in 1:39. A field of 10, headed by 2006 Horse of the Year finalist Lava Man, is shaping up for the $1 million Santa Anita Handicap on March 3. Lava Man, who along with John Henry and Milwaukee Brew are the only three horses to win the race twice, will attempt to become the first three-time winner of the Big ‘Cap. The probable field includes Strub Stakes winner Arson Squad, Awesome Gem, Ball Four, Boboman, Brother Derek, El Roblar, Lava Man, McCann’s Mojave, Molengao and Spring at Last. Trainer Bob Baffert still is on the fence with his two nominees, C’mon Tiger and Sinister Minister. The Craig Dollase-trained Wilko also is a possible starter. Long-shot specialist Saul Arias guided 22-1 outsider Conveyor’s Angel to victory by a head over Singalong in the $150,000 Grade II Buena Vista Handicap on Presidents’ Day at Santa Anita. It was the first-ever stakes victory for the 28-year-old Arias, who made a name for himself during the 2005-06 Santa Anita meeting by winning with numerous long shots. His first victory in Southern California, aboard Jackieosofabulous, on New Year’s Day 2006, returned $33.40. One day later he scored with J.P.’s Gayle, who paid $44.60. Conveyor’s Angel, the second-longest shot in the eight-horse field of fillies and mares, closed from last over a turf course labeled “good” and ran the one-mile distance in 1:35.77. The 5-year-old daughter of Conveyor returned $46.40. [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2103 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Meanwhile, the Doug O’Neill-trained Great Hunter, third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in November, worked six furlongs at Hollywood Park on Monday in 1:12.80 in preparation for the Grade II Robert B. Lewis Stakes (formerly the Santa Catalina) on March 3. “He’s doing awesome,” O’Neill said. “He worked in company with a maiden and galloped out real strong. I’m real happy with where we’re at.” Trainer Bill Currin said he hopes to finalize travel plans for Stormello, winner of last fall’s Norfolk Stakes for 2-year-olds at Oak Tree, sometime today. Stormello will run next in the Grade II Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park on March 3. The Santa Anita Derby would be Ravel’s final race before the Kentucky Derby on May 5. The son of 2000 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus is two for three lifetime after a victory in the Grade III Sham Stakes on Feb. 3 at Santa Anita. center_img ARCADIA – Three of the West Coast’s top Kentucky Derby hopefuls were in the news Monday.
