Perfect Wilson helps BYU beat W. Michigan in Potato Bowl

first_imgDecember 21, 2018 /Sports News – Local Perfect Wilson helps BYU beat W. Michigan in Potato Bowl Tags: BYU Cougars Football/Famous Idaho Potato Bowl/Western Michigan/Zach WIlson Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBOISE, Idaho (AP) — Zach Wilson set a BYU record and tied the NCAA bowl mark with 18-for-18 passing, throwing for 317 yards and four touchdowns in the Cougars’ 49-18 victory over Western Michigan on Friday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.Selected the game MVP, Wilson tied the NCAA bowl record for completion percentage set by Riley Skinner at 11 for 11 for Wake Forest in the 2008 EagleBank Bowl.Down 10-7 at halftime, BYU (7-6) scored 28 points in the third quarter. Wilson connected with Aleva Hifo for a 70-yard scoring strike, and Riley Burt had a 37-yard touchdown run in the quarter.Western Michigan (7-6) rolled up 192 yards of offense in the first half, then managed only 41 yards on 18 plays in the decisive third quarter.THE TAKEAWAYBYU: Wilson showed that the future is bright for BYU with him under center. And with seven starters returning on a unit that finished the regular season ranked 18th in total defense, BYU will have high expectations.Wilson, who has no plans to take a break to serve an LDS mission, is the cornerstone for future success. After taking over as the starter midway through the season, he finished his freshman campaign with 1,587 passing yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 221 more. That bodes well for BYU to build continuity on offense, which has had a revolving door at the quarterback position over the past three seasons.Western Michigan: The Broncos have plenty of work to do to get back to the zenith of their 2016 success that ended with a Cotton Bowl berth, but the building blocks are in place. Jon Wassink, who started the season at quarterback before suffering a season-ending foot injury, will return along with leading rusher LeVante Bellamy.The defense is also in good shape, returning eight starters that include defensive leaders Drake Spears and Alex Grace, who finished first and second, respectively, on the team in tackles.

Romania suspends EUR 1.6b corvette tender

first_img View post tag: Damen View post tag: Fincantieri Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today Romania suspends EUR 1.6b corvette tender The Romanian defense ministry on January 11 announced it is suspending the tender for the procurement of four new multi-role corvettes and upgrades of two frigates currently in service with the Romanian Navy.As explained by the ministry, the procedure was put on hold until irregularities discovered in the tender procedure are investigated.Three European bidders – France’s Naval Group, Dutch Damen, and Italy’s Fincantieri – competed for the contract which required the corvettes to be built in a Romanian shipyard.While all three contenders met the technical requirements, Romanian news reports indicate that officials allegedly promised the tender to Damen after the Dutch shipbuilder took over Romania’s largest shipyard – the former Daewoo Mangalia.This appears to be corroborated by the fact that Santierul Naval Constanta – Naval Group’s partner in the tender – launched a court appeal for the cancellation of the procurement process.Speaking to journalists in December 2018, Romanian defense minister Gabriel Les even indicated that the procurement process could be cancelled altogether due to insufficient funds.Damen entered the Romanian tender with its SIGMA design while Naval Group offered its Gowind 2500 corvette design. Fincantieri was said to have offered a version of the Abu Dhabi-class corvette which was delivered to the UAE Navy in 2013.

first_imgIn two previous OnApproach blogs, the concept of a data lake was defined and differentiated from a traditional data warehouse.
