Confessed serial killer not linked to the Hoosier state

first_imgCincinnati, OH—Samuel Little was indicted on a pair of murder charges last week in Cincinnati.  Little claims to have committed murders in at least 18 states, though state police say Indiana doesn’t appear to be one of them.Indiana State Police say they haven’t tied him to any killings in Indiana, but Indiana State Police Spokesman Ron Galaviz says, “it’s always possible that Little could be implicated at a later date.”While Little’s murders stretch through the southern United States, from South Carolina to California, he’s known to have at least come to Indiana’s border. In addition to the Cincinnati cases, he was arrested in 2012 at a Louisville homeless shelter, where Los Angeles authorities had tracked him.Little is currently serving life sentences for three murders in Los Angeles. He claims to have strangled 93 women in a killing career lasting 34 years, ending seven years before his arrest. If true, it would make him the worst serial killer in history.last_img read more

Bertrand targeting ticket to Brazil

first_img He made his debut in Villa’s creditable 2-2 draw at Liverpool in their last Barclays Premier League match and, ahead of Wednesday’s local derby with West Brom, admits the possibility of sneaking into Roy Hodgson’s squad for Brazil is never too far from his thoughts. “I think it will be in near enough every English player’s mind who is playing in the Premier League now,” he said. “As long as my form is good and I play enough games then you will always be in the hat. “I guess it’ll be down to the England manager, Roy, to judge and the fans to judge. I’m not going to say I want to be here or there or say I’m definitely going or I’m definitely not going. “I’m just going to take each game as it comes and hopefully my performances will be good enough to be considered. “For me personally it’s just about getting the consistency and then come the summer what will be will be.” Bertrand admits he had little dialogue with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho before making the move in search of regular game time. “I have always looked for progression in my career,” he said. “Since I was back at Chelsea after being on loan for so long I have gone from 15 games to 20 odd to 30 odd. I couldn’t see that progression again this season. “As soon as the alarm bells started to ring I knew I needed to fix it. “Personally we’ve never had any falling outs or anything but at the same time I’ve never had many reassurances so I thought it’s in my hands now, let me take it into my own hands and get out on loan and start to play my football again.” Asked whether it was hard not to take such treatment personally, Bertrand said: “Yes I’d say so, being a human being naturally it is, kind of. “He’s in a job, he’s in a profession and you just have to be professional at all times.” Aston Villa full-back Ryan Bertrand is eager to keep his name in the hat for a place in England’s World Cup squad after admitting “alarm bells” were ringing due to his lack of opportunities at Chelsea. The 24-year-old joined Villa on loan from the Blues earlier this month after finding himself third in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge behind Cesar Azpilicueta and Ashley Cole. The Londoner, who has a Champions League winners’ medal and two senior England caps under his belt, is desperate to play first-team football and grabbed the chance to go out on loan once again.

Colorado overcomes 16-point deficit in win over Stanford

first_imgColorado overcomes 16-point deficit in win over Stanford Terry sank all five free throws, sending Stanford into the locker room with an 11-point lead instead of 6.Da Silva left the game with 16:28 remaining after slamming his head on the floor while defending a breakaway by Evan Battey, who had stolen the ball and was charging toward the basket when they collided. A body board was brought out but eventually Da Silva sat up on his own and was helped off to the locker room. He didn’t return. Battey also was escorted to his locker room but later returned and finished with 13 points.Before play resumed after the scary scene, both teams huddled at midcourt in a team embrace. Schwartz sank both free throws for Battey to cut Colorado’s deficit to 41-32. Battey returned minutes later with the Buffs down 47-41, and his runner gave Colorado a 51-49 lead. The Buffs took the lead for good on Bey’s two free throws with 7:44 remaining that made it 58-56. Colorado visits Oregon on Friday night.___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_Top25,Update on the latest sports Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditBOULDER, Colorado (AP) — McKinley Wright IV scored 21 points, D’Shawn Schwartz added 20 and 24th-ranked Colorado overcame a cold start, a coach who lost his cool and a 16-point second-half deficit to beat short-handed Stanford 81-74 Saturday.All of Tyler Bey’s 11 points and nine of his dozen boards came in the second half when the Buffaloes shot 70% from the floor, 100% from behind the arc and 85% from the stripe.That followed an awful first half in which the Buffs shot 28% from the floor, 23% from three-point range and 54% from the line. At 19-5 overall and atop the Pac-12 at 8-3, the Buffaloes are off to the best start in their history, topping the 1954-55 and 1968-69 squads that started out 18-6.Stanford (16-7, 5-5), which led 39-23 early in the second half, lost its leading scorer, Oscar Da Silva, to a head laceration on a scary collision early in the second half, and he finished with 3 points, 13 below his average.Jaiden Delaire scored 19, Tyrell Terry had 18, Spencer Jones 14 and Isaac White 12 for the Cardinal.The Buffs trailed 33-22 at halftime following a five-point swing in the final two-tents of a second of the first half.Terry fired up a 3-pointer that Eli Parquet got a hand on. Colorado coach Tad Boyle was assessed a technical after Parquet was called for the foul.center_img February 8, 2020 BIG PICTUREStanford: The Cardinal was hoping to follow an 80-70 win over Oregon with another victory over a ranked team but Stanford sorely missed Da Silva and starting guard Bryce Willis, who sprained his right ankle in a loss at Utah on Thursday night and didn’t play. Willis scored a dozen points in the Cardinal’s win over Colorado last season.Colorado: The strong storm-back will keep the Buffs from falling out of the poll and could serve as a springboard to a strong finish in the Pac-12. The Buffs hit all eight of their 3-pointers in the second half after going 3-for-13 in the first half. And they sank 23 of 27 free throws after going just 7-for-13 from the stripe before halftime.UP NEXTStanford returns home to host Arizona State on Thursday night. Associated Press last_img read more

Professor raises awareness of Asian politics and relations

first_imgDetermined to educate people about the history of East Asia, a USC professor of international relations and business began writing a book three years ago to achieve just that.Diplomatic relations · Professor David Kang has been teaching at USC for two years and is the director of the Korean Studies Institute. – Brandon Hui | Daily Trojan David Kang recently released his latest book, East Asia Before the West: Five Centuries of Trade and Tribute, saying that most people are only taught about Europe’s historical international relations and rarely learn about how the East Asian countries interacted in their history.“The main point is to show that historical East Asian international relations was complex and vibrant and as nuanced as was Europe’s historical international relations,” Kang said.He first developed the idea for his book a decade ago but only started writing it three years ago.Kang said despite the fact that these Asian countries are important today, people tend to not know anything about how the countries interacted with one another 30 years ago, before they were integrated into the global society.“[It’s important to] make people more aware and present people with some knowledge of this time in a readable way, so that when we try to make sense of Asia today we have some sense of how it got to today,” Kang said. “We talk about China and Japan with no knowledge of how they came to be.”One of the most interesting things about East Asian history, Kang said, is that between 1300 and 1800 there was very little war between the countries themselves.He notes that it wasn’t the fact that the countries didn’t have the means to fight wars — the countries did have large armies. This was an interesting contrast to European countries, he said, which were constantly at war with each other.“War wasn’t in their minds the same way it’s not in our mindset that we might invade Canada. We could, but that’s not the way it is,” he said. “Historically, these countries had stable relationships. Among themselves they saw each other as legitimate.”Kang began teaching at USC two years ago, after teaching at Dartmouth College. He is a professor in both international relations and business administration and teaches International Relations for non-majors (IR 101) and East Asian Societies (EASC 150).In addition to teaching, Kang has also been the director of the Korean Studies Institute since he came to USC. The institute is still relatively young, he said, but he has big ambitions for the center.The institute supports all research that has to do with Korea, and it is available to undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty. It also helps with research grants, holds conferences and sponsors a traditional Korean drumming troop.The institute hosts speakers and public events, and according to Kang, the United States ambassador to South Korea will be speaking this winter.USC is in the perfect position to make the institute the best in the world, Kang said, because of the location in Los Angeles and the resources that the school has as a private university.“The overall mission is to educate USC students,” Kang said. “The vision is to be the best Korean studies institute in the world. We have a realistic chance to do that.”last_img read more

UW softball goes streaking

first_imgView Gallery (2 Photos)Move over 1987 Brewers, because the latest group of nine that could just as easily be referred to as “Team Streak” is this spring’s UW softball team.The Badgers (24-13 overall, 5-5 Big Ten) have won four in a row, eight of their last 10, and head coach Chandelle Schulte has her squad 11 games above the .500 mark for the first time in seven years. But the greatest test of Wisconsin’s fortitude all season will arrive Friday night in the form of the No.10/8 Northwestern Wildcats (33-10, 8-3).Although the entire Badger offense has been clicking during the recent run, no two bats have been quite as hot as those of Sam Polito and Ricci Robben.Since being moved out of the leadoff spot, senior centerfielder Sam Polito has excelled as the second hitter in Wisconsin’s lineup, and rides a career-high 12-game hitting streak into UW’s series with Northwestern. Polito’s streak is the third longest in program history, and is just two games away from Julie Borchard’s all-time record of 14 in 1996 and 1998. During her 12-game run, Polito is hitting .556 (20-for-36) and has scored 15 runs.Sophomore designated hitter Ricci Robben is also streaking at the plate, as her average has climbed 45 points in seven days, and she has batted .588 (10-for-17) in her last six games. During this time she has knocked in eight runs, and currently leads UW with a .366 average.If the Badgers are to continue their winning home stand, however, they’ll have to be able to contend with the likes of Northwestern’s three All-Americans: sophomore infielder Tammy Williams, senior first baseman Garland Cooper and senior pitcher Eileen Canney.Williams’ .457 average leads the Big Ten and she also paces the conference in hits (67), runs scored (54) and total bases (113). But to think Northwestern holds the top spot in just four major offensive categories is to overlook the exploits of NU’s other powerhouse at the plate, Garland Cooper.Cooper has more than made up for any weaknesses Williams may have at the plate by smacking an astounding 18 home runs this season, good enough to give the Wildcats the lead in yet another offensive category. Cooper is also leading the conference in slugging (.856) and RBIs (54) while batting .383.Nevertheless, Schulte won’t have her pitchers throw around any of Northwestern’s big bats.”We’re going to try to make them hit our pitches,” Schulte said. “If they hit it where we throw it and they get a good hit, then so be it. But hopefully we’ll change it up enough so they’re just not sitting on one pitch waiting for it.”In preparing to face Northwestern senior pitcher Eileen Canney, Schulte has made good use of “Black Beauty” — a high-velocity pitching cannon that fires softballs upward of 70 mph — to replicate the kind of heat the Badgers will see.”It throws really hard,” said Schulte of the machine. “So we’re going to work on that, and putting the ball in play a lot. We have a lot of good charts on them, so we’ll kind of go through a game of what we think might happen, and just prepare that way.”last_img read more

Women of Troy continue Pac-12 play on the road

first_imgDigging success · Led by senior outside hitter Samantha Bricio, the Women of Troy are off to the fourth best start in program history. – Tal Volk | Daily TrojanThe women’s volleyball team embarks on a four-game road trip this week, beginning on Friday at Oregon State. After playing the Beavers, the No. 1 Women of Troy will travel to Eugene to take on Oregon, and they will wrap things up in Washington, where they will face Washington and Washington State for the second time this season.USC has been No. 1 in the nation since Oct. 5. With a 20-0 record, the Women of Troy received a unanimous vote for the top spot for the first time this season in the AVCA Coaches Poll.Not many expected such a strong season out of this year’s team. After a subpar 2014 campaign, USC went into the fall with a young team and a good deal of roster turnover. Additionally, head coach Mick Haley asked his players to adapt to a new, physical system in hopes of lifting his side’s play.With all that in mind, it was a tall order for this 2015 team to improve on last season’s record — let alone blow it out of the water — but the players came together and responded to the challenge. The Women of Troy racked up 16 wins in total last year: a mark this season’s roster hit just over a month into its campaign.Junior libero Taylor Whittingham, who was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week for the second time in her career on Monday, praised the new members of the team for gelling with the rest of the squad so quickly after entering the program.“The freshman came in, and we got really close with them as a group,” she said. “That helped a lot for our team’s chemistry.”Whether it’s been the team chemistry, the new system, sheer determination or some combination of the three, the fact remains that the Women of Troy are off to their best start in over a decade. The last time the team found itself 20-0 was in 2003, when USC defeated Florida in the NCAA Tournament Final in Dallas to cap off a perfect 35-0 season. It was the second of Haley’s two championships at USC and the second consecutive tournament-winning year for the Women of Troy.Haley refuses to look beyond the short term for now, however, knowing that playing Pac-12 rivals for the second time this season would be a tougher challenge.“The first time through, everyone is just trying to feel each other out,” he said. “The second time, everyone’s seen the data and has seen how you play, and they’ll try to attack all of your weaknesses.”USC will play its first rematches of the season when the team travels to Washington and Washington State. Both schools visited the Galen Center earlier in the season: The Women of Troy first swept past the Cougars 3-0 and moved on to beat the Huskies 3-1 two days later.Before USC plays its two opponents in Washington, though, they will have to get through Oregon State on Friday and Oregon on Sunday.The Beavers have had a tough campaign, and they sit at 4-14 going into their match against USC. The two sides split their season series last year. The Women of Troy took the first game at the Galen Center 3-1, and OSU took the second by the same score line back in Corvallis.Oregon has endured an up-and-down season to this point, with the Ducks’ record at 10-7 going into their first game of the week against UCLA on Friday. Interestingly, they have spent most of their season so far away from home. Oregon has only played two games at the Matthew Knight Arena this year, but both have been close, five-set contests. The Ducks will look to get a boost from their home fans this weekend against the Women of Troy.No matter the opposition, USC remains focused on executing its game plan.“We’re just working on getting comfortable and knowing all our roles in the system,” Whittingham said.Haley echoed his libero’s comments.“We’re still a work in progress,” he said. “Every game, we get a little better so that it can all come together in December.”last_img read more
