Horse Sport Enews The evening’s showcase class, the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI4*, presented by Havensafe Farm, saved the best for last. Jessica Jo Tate (USA) piloted Elizabeth Guarisco’s 17-year-old gelding Faberge to their first ever Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) victory in week eight of the 12-week winter spectacular held at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, Florida. AGDF 2020 runs for 12 weeks, through March 29. Tate has been riding the son of Florestan I for 11 years and has had her eye on winning a cooler from AGDF for much of that time.Dongseon Kim (KOR) finished second on Belstaff, with the in-form Japanese Olympian Kiichi Harada once again gracing the podium, this time filling third on Egistar with 70.745%.Tate, who splits her time between South Carolina and Wellington, said: “I’m so proud and really pleased with my horse. We haven’t shown since Devon [in September], so we’ve been doing a lot of fitness with him. He really was so with me tonight and had a lot of energy. He loves the crowd, so that’s always fun to bring a horse like that here. I’ve always wanted to win a cooler at Global, so this was amazing that I got to put one on for the four-star freestyle. It was really a special evening and for sure a highlight of my career so far. We’re just totally thrilled.”Tate, who rode to music made by Marlene Whitaker, added: “Faberge is like a Labrador Retriever. He is the most friendly, kind-hearted, wonderful horse. We always need to work on our energy, so riding at night in the cool weather like this helps us. He just has the most wonderful workman-like character, and he really tries his heart out for me.”Betsy Juliano of the class sponsor Havensafe Farm said: “We’re privileged in this place and in this venue to see horses progress year after year after year. JJ is an example of that, with this horse – I’ve seen her compete this horse year after year, and tonight here we are. I’m thrilled!”Second-placed Dongseon Kim (KOR) was having his final ride in the international arena on Belstaff, as he marks his retirement from the sport at this show after a decade to pursue a career as an investment banker. He rode his own Brentano II stallion to 72.43%, with two of the five judges placing him first.“I really wanted to win, but it didn’t go as planned,” he said. “I really practiced the one-tempis to make sure there were no mistakes, but these things happen. This is my first international season with him, so I think there were still some miscommunications, but I’m still really happy.“The horses are going to be sent to my good friends in Europe who are much, much better riders than me and who can give them the best career that they deserve. I’ll still ride for fun at the weekends, and maybe I would like to come back eventually.”Stephen Clarke, who presided from C, said: “The way the riders interpreted the music I thought was great, especially for the crowd. I think it’s so good for the sport when you see riders really taking some risks and really developing these freestyles in an interesting and difficult way. It makes it fun and brings the sport forward.”Kiitchi Harada had a busy evening. He was third in the four-star freestyle on Egistar, and won the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI3*, presented by Summit Farm on his other ride at the level, Fairytale S. He logged his first ever international win on the Noa Co Ltd’s 16-year-old Reve D’Or gelding with a freestyle borrowed from his trainer Christoph Koschel just hours earlier.“It was my first freestyle with Fairytale,” said Harada, who is vying for a place on the Japanese team for this year’s Olympics. “I learned the music just today, a few hours ago, but it really fit to him. I feel the horse loved the freestyle and expect maybe he’ll do much better later on. Egistar was hot today and a bit difficult for me to control. Maybe Egistar was a little bit jealous of Fairytale.”Harada was most closely pursued in the three-star class by Nora Batchelder (USA) who finished second with 71.835% on Andrea Whitcomb’s 12-year-old Fidertanz gelding Faro SQF. Third went to another Japanese rider, Akane Kuroki, who is still getting to know her new ride Zuidenwind 1187, a stallion by OO-Seven. They scored 71.49% after winning the qualifying grand prix.In the final of the Palm Beach Dressage Derby class, sponsored by Summit Farm, in which riders are paired with unfamiliar, loaned horses and ride a prix st georges test, the triple reigning champion Christoph Koschel (GER) went head-to-head with Jan Ebeling (USA). Koschel is somewhat of a Derby class specialist, having won in Hamburg, Munich and Palm Beach. His route to the final came when he rode Melanie Peterson’s Zinca earlier in the day, knocking out Steffen Peters (USA). Ebeling won his semi-final against Pia Fortmuller aboard Lynda Tetreault’s Cor De Lys.Each rider was given five minutes to familiarize themselves with Karen Pavicic’s Totem before the test. Koschel proved unbeatable yet again tonight, riding the eight-year-old to 70.221% versus Ebeling’s 66.397%. Of the gelding by Totilas, whom Pavicic has had since a foal, Koschel said: “The Prix St. Georges is not the end for this horse; you can really feel the grand prix horse in him and he’s very willing to collect. I really enjoy it when they’re so willing. I tried my best and I want to say a big thanks to all the owners, especially Karen with this really special horse, who I think has a big future.”The young Spanish rider Pablo Gomez Molina, who works for Yeguada De Ymas, dominated the FEI Intermediate I CDI3*, presented by Harmony Sporthorses. On Furst Fiorano Ymas he scored 72.99%, their best result to date in this test. The 25-year-old rider splits his time between Wellington and Europe.He is riding Yeguada De Ymas’ 13-year-old stallion by First Piccolo in their third season at international small tour. Gomez Molina has worked for the stud for seven years and rides around 12 horses a day. He won the class with almost 5% in-hand over second-placed Lauren Sprieser and Guernsey Elvis (68.235%). Winner of Wednesday’s Prix St. Georges class, Cesar Parra rounded out the podium on GK Don Cesar with 67.696%.It was another hefty score that landed the winner’s sash in the FEI Prix St. Georges CDI3*, presented by CabanaCoast. All three top placed riders broke the 70% barrier, but it was Endel Ots who came out on top to lead the USA’s whitewashing of the class, filling the top five slots.Wellington-based Ots rode the 11-year-old mare Sonnenberg’s Everdance, who was bred at Sonnenberg Farm in Oregon, to 73.775%, with the flying changes being a particular highlight and attracting a nine from the experienced British judge Stephen Clarke. This was the Johnson daughter’s first CDI show. Ots held off a challenge from Jami Kment who recorded 72.745% on Gatino Van Hof Olympia, by Apache. Meagan Davis was third on Damocles HLF (70.981%).Week eight of the 12-week AGDF continues on Saturday with eight international classes, including the FEI Grand Prix Special CDI3*, presented by The Brooke USA and the Mission Control-sponsored FEI Grand Prix Special CDI4*, which kicks off at 15.45pm. Adrienne Lyle (USA) will be bidding to do the double on Salvino, having topped the qualifying grand prix class on her Tokyo Olympics hopeful. AGDF 2020 runs for 12 weeks, through March 29.

But when Disney comes out with an entire line of merchandise, look out world!Now, maybe I’m just not the target audience, but at my tragically unhip age, I don’t get them — it’s a series of princess shirts with the theme of “I’m such a _____”. Good news, you can get quite a few princess shirts in this design. And if this is something that appeals to you, perhaps you can explain them to me?

A decade ago most enterprises avoided Open Source software, but things have changed. Right now Open Source use at enterprises stands at higher than 75 percent, and Gartner predicts that in just five years that 99 percent of enterprises will have adopted some amount of Open Source software. So rather than Open Source being considered as a marginalized alternative to commercial software, Open Source is increasingly becoming the mainstream option.In a recent analysis that pitted source code taken from Open Source against source code from commercial systems, Open Source software came out on top. The Coverity Scan Integrity project examined 37 million lines of Open Source software and compared the quality of the code against 300 million lines taken from proprietary software.Zack Samocha, Coverity Scan Project Director, said that “The line between open source and proprietary software will continue to blur over time as open source is further cemented in the modern software supply chain… Open source projects are acting like commercial products. If I am a commercial company and I want to adopt open source, there are definitely projects out there that are trustworthy.”How did Coverity judge and compare code quality? The Coverity Scan tool is automated and looks for software defects that includes things like:Pointer dereferencingUninitialized VariablesMemory CorruptionControl Flow ProblemsOnly high and medium severity defects were considered in the defect counts for the report.45 major open source projects were examined, each with an average of about 820,000 lines of code. The defect density for Open Source averaged .45 defects for every 1000 lines of code, compared to a higher defect density of .64 which was found with proprietary software. In particular, code from Linux, PostgresSQL and PHP projects were singled out in the report as being exemplary models of good software — that’s important since these projects are the common elements of LAMP-style Open Source software development.

I saw Chelsea get to the final last year and beat Tottenham in the semi. “I saw how Stamford Bridge was celebrating that, and the team was slightly unlucky to lose to Man City in the final. “We will try to be competitive and at the same time as giving the youngsters a go, we will try to win, as a club like Chelsea should always do.“I have nice memories of the two finals I won. It is a competition that is difficult to win but we have to give it everything.”

Then-sophomore pitcher John Kuchno (45) throws the ball during a game against Northwestern May 6, 2012, at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 4-1.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe clink of aluminum bats has returned as Ohio State’s baseball team began their season in Port Charlotte, Fla.The bats started out hot for the Buckeyes as they won their first two games against Connecticut and Auburn, but then lost two in a row to Indiana State.In Sunday’s game against the Indiana State, sophomore right handed pitcher Jake Post started on the mound for the Buckeyes. He gave them four good innings, but errors allowed three unearned runs to cross the plate for Indiana State.Freshman pitcher Tanner Tully came on in the fifth and gave up another run in the sixth before the Buckeyes began a nice rally in the bottom half.A balk and an error plated two runs and left the bases loaded for senior outfielder Tim Wetzel. He hit into a fielder’s choice that scored two more as sophomore first baseman Zach Ratliff turned it into a double steal.OSU gained its first lead in the eighth after three doubles from freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson, sophomore infielder Craig Nennig and Wetzel.With a 6-4 lead heading into the ninth, junior pitcher Trace Dempsey came in to try and seal the deal, but gave up four runs on four hits to give the Sycamores an 8-6 advantage.Indiana State freshman pitcher Ryan Keaffaber stymied the Buckeyes to earn the two game sweep.“I liked the way we battled today,” Wetzel said Sunday. “It was nice to get the all of the young guys experience. It can happen with a young team, so you have to be ready to go every day.”Coach Greg Beals was disappointed with the outcome of the final game, especially after how his team battled so far back.“Today was a big lesson for us,” Beals said after the loss. “We have the ability to play really bad … and to come back like we did. The game is humbling, but we need to do all the necessary work to make sure we’re ready to go out and play.”Freshman pitcher Zach Farmer began his collegiate career starting on the bump for Saturday’s tilt with the ISU. His start did not go as planned, though, as he gave up a three-hit, two-run first inning.Dawson got the Buckeyes back in it in the fourth with a three-run homerun off junior Brad Lombard. Dawson finished the day going 3-4 in his first collegiate game.The Buckeyes wouldn’t score again though and ISU took advantage of their inept bats, scoring two more runs off Farmer and another three off freshman right handed pitcher Adam Niemeyer for a 7-3 win.The early game Saturday against Auburn matched up a pair of southpaws as the Buckeyes’ junior Ryan Riga and the Tigers’ senior Michael O’Neal were starting on the mound. Both lefties pitched brilliantly as each went six strong innings and only gave up four hits each.The difference was redshirt-junior Josh Dezse’s RBI single in the fourth. After missing all of last season with a stress reaction, Dezse was the designated hitter for each game and didn’t miss a beat.That run was all the Buckeyes needed, as Griga didn’t allow a run before handing it off to redshirt-senior pitcher Tyler Giannonatti for the seventh. Dempsey came in to finish the final two innings for his first save of the season and sealing the 1-0 victory for OSU.“I felt good, but obviously it was a lot more important for the team getting this win,” Riga said. “It gives your more confidence for tomorrow.”Friday’s season opener against the Huskies started off shaky for the Buckeyes as senior pitcher Greg Greve started out the game giving up two runs in the top of the first. He quickly settled in after that though and the offense made up for those early runs in impressive fashion.With the bases loaded in the bottom of the third, sophomore infielder Jacob Bosiokovic hammered a ball over the centerfield fence for a grand slam and the Buckeyes’ first runs of the season. His blast energized both the offense and defense as they didn’t allow another run, but added four more of their own for an 8-2 win.“I was just trying to put something in play and help the team win,” Bosiokovic said. “Fortunately I hit it over the fence.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to play UCF Friday in Orlando. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.

The then-redshirt freshman amassed 45 touchdowns and 3,772 total yards and finishing fifth in the Heisman voting.After 50 starts across four years, Barrett finished his Ohio State career with more offensive yards (12,697), passing touchdowns (104) and total touchdowns (147) than any other player in Big Ten history.Along with the numerous records accomplished while at Ohio State, Barrett went 38-6 as a starter while completing over 60 percent of his passes in each of his four seasons.The three-time captain led the Buckeyes to a 24-7 Cotton Bowl victory over USC and this year’s No. 3 pick Sam Darnold in the last game of his OSU career.In his sophomore season, Barrett threw for 211 yards and ran for 96 in a 44-28 Fiesta Bowl win over Notre Dame. A year later, again in the Fiesta Bowl, Barrett threw for 127 yards and two interceptions in a 31-0 defeat to Clemson in the College Football Playoff.At the NFL combine, Barrett was the second fastest quarterback in the 40-yard dash at 4.70 seconds. On the other end, Barrett finished with the third slowest three cone drill times of all quarterbacks (7.38 seconds).
