Happy Birthday EarthCaching – EarthCaches Turn 8 Today

first_img“The Pinnacles” EarthCache in Malaysia (GC19A54)The world’s first EarthCache turns eight-years-old today.  Saying “Happy Birthday!” is as easy as logging an EarthCache. Chances are there’s one close to where you’re sitting right now. There are plenty of EarthCaches, think thousands and thousands, around the globe. But that wasn’t the case back in 2004.“Earthcache I – a simple geology tour of Wasp Head” (GCHFT2) triggered a seismic movement in geocaching. The first EarthCache was located in Australia. It was placed by geoaware on January 10, 2004. Since then more than 17,000 EarthCaches have been published, popping up on every continent on the planet.Each EarthCache must share specific characteristics before being published. There’s no physical cache. At every EarthCache, geocachers learn about the forces that sculpted the earth. EarthCaches showcase volcanoes, seismic fault lines, salt flats, bizarre rock structures and more. Each Earthcache reveals how scientists understand our planet.EarthCache at a green sand beach in Hawaii “Olivine” (GC1M15H)To log an EarthCache geocachers must demonstrate to the cache owner what they learned about a specific geological feature. Geocachers might measure a rock structure or record a tidal movement. At the EarthCache “Olivine” in Hawaii, geocachers must answer questions about the unique green grains of sand.EarthCaches are gaining in popularity as they grow older and more established in the geocaching world. Organizers are even hosting the first International EarthCache Event (GC33E6X) this year. It’ll take place in September near Portland, Maine, USA. More than 250 geocachers have already logged a “Will Attend.”You can learn more about EarthCaching by watching the video below.[vsw id=”f11fxuNsaE8″ source=”youtube” width=”425″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedInside Geocaching HQ Podcast Transcript (Episode 13): EarthCachesMay 10, 2018In “Community”Your Path to Platinum EarthCachingFebruary 11, 2015In “Community”The Creator of EarthCaching talks about the 10th AnniversaryJanuary 10, 2014In “Community”last_img read more

Stephen Curry, Warriors finalize $201 million, 5-year deal

first_imgSure, Durant’s spectacular postseason may have shined brighter as he hoisted his MVP hardware, yet Curry did so much on the way to his second title in three years. From his dazzling dribbling, shot-making and the way he dishes off, Curry has been brilliant — but what he does for the Warriors as an ambassador in the community is as much a part of what makes him special as anything else.He is the face of a franchise that has become the standard by which every other organization is measured.When coach Steve Kerr was asked in early April about how Curry had taken on more of the load with Durant nursing a left knee injury, the 2016 NBA coach of the year touched on his point guard’s unfailing ability to guide Golden State.“I don’t think he’s been any different with KD out in terms of his leadership. He’s still just Steph,” Kerr said. “He’s humble and cocky at the same time, which is why we like him. He’s a very humble, modest human being, which the guys respect. And he’s an arrogant basketball player, which is what you need to be a superstar. He believes in himself and he goes out there looking to light it up every night. You take him off the floor you won’t find a kinder, gentler human being. It’s a pretty powerful force.”Curry is getting paid for all of those things. He has led the turnaround of a franchise from longtime laughingstock to regular championship contender.ADVERTISEMENT Considered overlooked and undersized when he arrived on the NBA scene after being drafted seventh overall out of Davidson College in 2009, Curry has silenced the doubters with every spot-on heave from half-court.The two-time NBA MVP, who earned $12 million this season as one of the league’s biggest bargains, averaged 28.1 points in the playoffs while also contributing 6.7 assists and 6.2 rebounds. Now, he will earn $40 million per season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“Just happy to be a leader on this team that can understand the goals that we set out for ourselves and try to get it done the best way we could,” Curry said immediately after the Game 5 title clincher in the NBA Finals last month.NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant also signed his new contract worth approximately $53 million over the next two years as Golden State announced its deals with returning free agents.

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski, File)OAKLAND, California — Stephen Curry has delivered his share of success already to a franchise that desperately needed it. Now, he’s being paid for all he has done — and certainly will do.Curry finalized his new contract on Tuesday, signing a $201 million, five-year deal with the champion Golden State Warriors that initially was the richest ever, until James Harden topped it with a $228 million extension from the Houston Rockets.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’ Trump strips away truth with hunky topless photo tweet Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ Now, he wants to build a dynasty with KD by his side. Durant accepted less money for the coming season so the Warriors’ core could remain intact.From spending an off-day at an inner-city elementary school to donating three bed nets for every 3-pointer he makes to fight malaria through Nothing But Nets, Curry is as comfortable hanging with kids — hat on backward, of course — as he is intensely dueling Durant in 3-point shootouts on the practice floor or driving past LeBron James to score on the NBA’s biggest stage.Curry never worried about his own production, the scrutiny of his diminished points or shooting percentages playing alongside fellow superstar Durant this season.A year after breaking his own NBA record with 402 3-pointers, Curry rarely finished quarters with those jaw-dropping 3s that were so memorable from the previous season — and that was fine, because Golden State kept winning. The Warriors were sharing the ball in Kerr’s deep rotation, developing into a close-knit group with great chemistry despite all the new faces.But it wasn’t until the Warriors blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter of a demoralizing 109-108 loss at Cleveland on Christmas Day that Curry reached the realization he must do more.“I learned a lot about myself,” he said. “After that Christmas Day game I kind of understood that we have such high-IQ players that if I could be aggressive, do what I do and need to do every single night, everything will kind of flow from that.“The proof is obviously in what we were able to accomplish from that point on in the regular season, being 16-1 in the playoffs, everybody being the best version of themselves and putting all the puzzle pieces together.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. last_img read more

Alexis Sánchez has the chance to show City what they are not missing

first_imgShare on Pinterest But it does seem a fairly distant prospect right now. Indeed, as Arsenal and Sánchez travel to the Etihad to play the league leaders on Sunday afternoon, a journey Sánchez seemed so determined to make permanently in the summer, it is hard not to take a step back and marvel at the unforeseen consequences of one of the more complex botched big-money moves.City were genuinely keen on signing Sánchez. The move fell apart as Pep Guardiola rejected the idea of letting Sterling go the other way. Revived on deadline day the whole thing collapsed for a second time as Arsenal’s own move for Lemar flatlined.At the end of which we have, for now, a clear set of winners and losers. Undisrupted by big-name arrivals, and given their head by Sergio Agüero’s recent injury problems, City’s youthful Jesus-Sané-Sterling frontline has been allowed to settle into one of the most exciting things around in European club football right now.Sterling’s improvement, in particular, is surely related in part to Guardiola’s heartening refusal to let him leave as a Sánchez makeweight. To date the oldest member of that attacking tripod – still aged only 22 – has 10 goals and two assists this season, reward for some driving forward runs and two years of hard work on both his finishing and final pass. Best of all he looks happy, a player starting to find his most effective gears.At which point, enter Sánchez, who seems to have spent the past three months heading the other way; who has one goal in seven league games this season; and who has looked, so far, some way off his best self. City were said to be angry at the way Arsenal refused to sell Sánchez at the last. At it stands Sunday afternoon may just provide a little more evidence that perhaps this was a deal best left undone.But then, even after eight seasons in Serie A, La Liga and the Premier League, Sánchez remains an intriguingly opaque A-list footballer.In his early days at Barcelona he earned the nickname “Cachai?”, which translates as “know what I mean?”, a reference to the blank looks induced by his north Chilean brogue (Sánchez even ended up taking Spanish lessons for a while). There is still a sense of cachai about Sánchez now, an undeniably brilliant footballer who has still to find his definitive level, and who is clearly still bothered by his inconclusive spell at Barça.Not that his best qualities are in doubt. In an Arsenal team defined in recent years by a sense of something a little too comfortable, Sánchez has been an invigorating tonic. Only Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku and Agüero, all career No9s, have more goals in the Premier League in that time. Sánchez has been a wonderful signing. Right up until the moment he wanted to stop being one and play for City instead.It is a move that would at least have addressed the wider question of whether some very distinct qualities really can work in a genuinely A-list team. In an interview last year Sánchez suggested it was only a wrong turn or two that had prevented him being hoist aloft on the Messi-Ronaldo pantheon.Others might suggest there is a reason why his three years at Arsenal have been the most productive of his career, that it is only in a team where he can be the star that he has truly flourished: those streaky patches, the occasional wastefulness with the ball, the periods where he stops running, all excused by his own star status. blogposts Alexis Sánchez Sportblog Share via Email Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling sees scoring as fun, says Pep Guardiola Topics Arsenal You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes – and you’re not too scarred by a complex, deadline-week, dual-jurisdiction triple-swoop involving both Raheem Sterling and Thomas Lemar – you might find you get what you need.Manchester City might have been flying even higher at the top of the league and have scored more than their 35 goals had Alexis Sánchez signed from Arsenal in late August. Who knows, as the fixture list starts to bite, City’s fans may look on their brilliant but callow front line and think wistfully of Sánchez’s proven razor edge, his more seasoned warrior spirit. Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content Share on LinkedIn Arsène Wenger expects Alexis Sánchez to stay at Arsenal in January window Read more Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Manchester City It would be unfair to suggest Sánchez’s time at Barcelona was a failure. He was injured a lot. He scored or made 81 goals in his 141 matches. But there is no doubt Sánchez has thrived with club and country as the kingpin rather than as a high-class ensemble player.It was Udinese’s manager Francisco Guidolin who effectively discovered the Arsenal-issue Sánchez, moving him from wasteful wide attacker to a star No10 seven years ago and igniting his career in the process. Encouraged by Guidolin to play without fear and take risks Sánchez was voted most promising player in the world in a 2011 Fifa poll and was plucked out by Barcelona the same year.At the end of which there is an element of the Peter principle about Sánchez’s status now. Are the gifts that make him so exceptional in a team where he can be the attacking star the same qualities that make him unsuitable in a team where possession is everything, where there are stars of equal or greater magnitude?If there is a slight smear on his wonderful Arsenal record it is his poor recent scoring record against the best teams. He has one goal in his past 12 games against City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham.At times Sánchez has seemed to rebel against this, a man playing his own, furious game within a game. During his summer sulk it was hard not to think back to an extraordinary 10-minute spell against Bayern Munich in the 5-1 defeat in Bavaria. That night Sánchez ran around the pitch in a mist of anger, scoring a goal, and burning himself out for the rest of the game: a footballer in a state of profound on-field tantrum, displaying simultaneously both his strengths and his weakness.Given the youthful egalitarianism of City’s attack it is tempting to wonder exactly how he might have affected the balance of this team. Sunday afternoon would be an excellent moment to start answering that question, to offer Arsenal’s supporters a little sweetener after the summer; and to erase, at least until January, memories of another moment of uncomfortable inbetween.
