The Limestone Saints men’s lacrosse team won its fifth NCAA tournament title on Sunday against Merrimack, 11-9. The Saints, which play all their home games on a Shaw Sports Turf Legion field, finished the season at 21-1, avenging their only loss which came at the hands of Merrimack back in April. Limestone was 12-0 on their home Shaw Sports Turf field. Ryan Maciejewski had the hat trick for the Saints. The team’s other eight goals came from eight different players. Limestone, the dominant program in NCAA Division II lacrosse, now boasts five NCAA Championships, with three of those coming the past four years. The Saints’ titles came in 2000, 2002, 2014, 2015, and 2017. The Saints installed their Legion field in 2014 to enable them to get more programmable hours out of their playing surface. The wear and tear on the grass field was just too much. Adding the Shaw Sports Turf playing surface, along with lights, has allowed them to accommodate multiple sports. The field plays host to the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, the men’s and women’s soccer teams, and field hockey. Limestone College offers one of the two southernmost field hockey programs among all three divisions of the NCAA. The field will also accommodates intramurals. “We really like the height and mixture of the Legion system from Shaw Sports Turf,” said Jimmy Martin, Associate Athletic Director for Facilities. “The different characteristics provided by the slit and monofilament fibers help us with all the sports we play on the field.” Legion is a combination of high-performance monofilament fibers and a durable slit film fiber. The slit film fiber is a workhorse which will handle the workload, while the monofilament provides a more resilient surface that enhances performance characteristics. Limestone College was founded in 1845 as the first women’s college in South Carolina and one of the first in the country. The school became fully coeducational in the 1960’s. Today, the school has 1,000 traditional students and some 2,500 students at its extended campuses. The athletic program at Limestone began in 1973. The Saints currently participate at the NCAA Division II level as a member of Conference Carolinas. “The strength of this program is amazing,” said Andrew Barksdale, Territory Manager with Shaw Sports Turf. “Their success is unrivaled and we believe the performance characteristics provided by their Shaw Sports Turf field are unrivaled, as well. Go Saints!” About Shaw Sports Turf A wholly-owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., Shaw Industries is a full flooring provider to the residential and commercial markets. Shaw supplies carpet, hardwood, laminate, resilient, and tile/ stone flooring products, as well as synthetic turf.

Australia’s famed All Saints Skin Clinic opened a third location in the rarefied Double Bay Sydney area. According to internationally renowned cosmetic physician and All Saints Skin Clinic founder Dr. Joseph Hkeik, the new Double Bay location is at the forefront of interior design and beauty, creating the perfect environment for rejuvenation. Centrally located in a historic two-story residential building in one of the most exclusive areas of Double Bay, it is the third All Saints practice, joining sister properties in Surry Hills and Parramatta. The interior of the Victorian property has been thoughtfully re-designed by Dr. Hkeik and architect Blainey North to maintain a relaxed residential feel. Using mirrors and ground-up lighting, the clinic aims to provide clients with a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment reflective of the treatments offered. It features six treatment rooms, an opulent skin consultation room with makeup and photography stations, and a post care meditation space. Dr. Hkeik purchased the property several years after seeing it for the first time and immediately knew it would be an ideal setting for a clinic. With a strong creative and arts background that makes him a uniquely effective aesthetic physician, Dr. Hkeik had a vision for the interior that was achieved with the collaboration with Ms. North. “I conceptualized this place in my head for years when I realized I needed to take a holistic approach, similar to my practice philosophy,” Dr. Hkeik says. “Beauty spans multiple layers, and the outside reflects proper care starting from the inside.” “We had this idea that when you take two mirrors and put them opposite each other — but at an angle — it creates this unexpected outcome,” explained Blainey North, who made extensive use of both smooth and right angles to keep the design interesting. At All Saints Skin & Wellness Clinic, the ‘global holistic’ approach to face management starts with a full skin-health analysis, nutritional advice about ingestible skin health products, clinical facials and skin treatments, through to medical lasers, injectables and structural facial solutions. All bespoke treatments are designed to create lasting changes and based around the 3 pillars of skin health: Nutrition, Relaxation and Skin care. The Double Bay clinic also offers a wide range of relaxing treatments inspired by both eastern rituals and the most innovative western therapies address the skin, body and spirit to help travelers achieve life changing health results. At All Saints Skin Clinic, the emphasis is on patient care and comfort, while formulating the best approach for cosmetic enhancement on an individualized basis. With Australian offices in Surry Hills, North Parramatta and now Double Bay-Sydney, All Saints offers the best anti-ageing and corrective aesthetic treatment options to clients from around the world with a personalized, strategic approach to the art and science of facial rejuvenation.

When saccades systematically miss their visual target, their amplitude adjusts, causing the position errors to be progressively reduced. Conventionally, this adaptation is viewed as driven by retinal error (the distance between primary saccade endpoint and visual target). Recent work suggests that the oculomotor system is informed about where the eye lands; thus not all "retinal error" is unexpected. The present study compared two error signals that may drive saccade adaptation: retinal error and prediction error (the difference between predicted and actual postsaccadic images). Subjects made saccades to a visual target in two successive sessions. In the first session, the target was extinguished during saccade execution if the amplitude was smaller (or, in other experiments, greater) than the running median, thereby modifying the average retinal error subjects experienced without moving the target during the saccade as in conventional adaptation paradigms. In the second session, targets were extinguished at the start of saccades and turned back on at a position that reproduced the trial-by-trial retinal error recorded in the first session. Despite the retinal error in the first and second sessions having been identical, adaptation was several fold greater in the second session, when the predicted target position had been changed. These results argue that the eye knows where it lands and where it expects the target to be, and that deviations from this prediction drive saccade adaptation more strongly than retinal error alone. © 2012 the American Physiological Society.


MIAMI, Jan. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you didn’t get tickets to the presidential Inaugural Ball, here’s another opportunity – one to celebrate with the “deplorables” that got Donald Trump elected. A new inventory of 2,000 tickets to one more historic event to usher in the 45th president of the United States came on the market this week when the Deplorables Inaugural Ball™ was announced Wednesday. The event will be the launch for the Deplorables Nation™ movement and take place at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 19. Deplorables Nation™ is the counter cry to Occupy Democrats and Move On. The non-profit is the brainchild of Evelio Medina, president of the Miami Brickell Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the Deplorables Inaugural Ball™. A longtime event organizer and lifetime Republican, the Cuban American immigrant – like many Trump supporters – embraced the term used to describe half of them. Medina founded Deplorables Nation™ as an extension of the grassroots campaign that got Trump elected by “deplorables” discontent with the federal government. “It’s not an idea, it’s a movement,” Medina said. “There’s a big group of people who didn’t have a tent. Now they do.” Medina’s research shows 73 million people used the word “deplorables” in a positive way in the last three months. But he had an instinct about it immediately. As soon as Clinton said the word, Medina realized its political, commercial and motivational power. He trademarked the term and secured multiple websites, including www.deplorablesnation.com, which launched this week to advance sales of the first ever Deplorables Inaugural Ball on the eve of Trump’s first day in office. At the Ronald Reagan Building, the Deplorables Inaugural Ball™ -- which will be the best of the unofficial balls -- features amazing musical talent such as Saints of Havana, Lucy Grau, and more to come -- plus scrumptious food and a four-hour open bar. “We’re hoping he will go. He might,” Medina said, referring to the future POTUS. “He owes his election to the deplorables.” “Donald Trump’s victory has left many stunned. But not us. Not the Deplorables Nation™,” Medina said. “We are asking the Deplorables across the country to come together in our nation’s capital to celebrate this historical moment in our nation’s history.” Even those who can’t go to Washington, D.C. for the event can participate in the historic moment, Medina said. “Our team has created a generous package of commemorative souvenirs, to mark this historic victory so that everybody can feel like they are contributing to this once-in-a-lifetime celebration,” Medina explained. “We are also reaching out to a select group of individuals, associations and corporate partners interested in underwriting and sponsoring this event.” Funds raised by the $500 tickets ($1,000 for VIP seats) -- and from the online sale of commemorative souvenirs -- will go to the non-profit to continue to push Trump’s agenda, Medina said. “And if he gets scattered or distracted, we are here to remind him. “Because our agenda is his agenda – America first.” About Evelio Medina  A Miami-based Cuban-American and life-long Republican, Evelio Medina is a consummate entrepreneur, with vast experience in operating within the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. He can be described in one word as “passionate”. At an early age, Evelio became a public servant (City of Hialeah Councilman), a small business owner and relentless relationship builder. For the past seven years, Evelio is founder, president and CEO for the Downtown Miami & Brickell Chamber of Commerce, which serves as a platform to empower, represent and create economic development opportunities for its members and the community as a whole. Evelio's experience has taken him to the White House and to serving the less fortunate at Camillus House (a homeless shelter), affording him the ability to have the common touch, that of understanding and being able to interact with his fellow men and women in effective and efficient manner. His guiding principle is that it is in giving that we receive. Evelio Medina's knowledge and education base comes from his studying business, marketing, accounting, and real estate on a local, national, and international dimension. All these attributes uniquely qualify him to prosper and thrive in the world we live today. Evelio's God given talents to interact and understand people and what motivates them, fits perfectly in implementing successful strategies to accomplish the goal of bringing the project he is working on to a national and international stage. His passion to serve his community and his country is his driving force. About Lucy Grau  Lucy Grau, a charismatic and talented singer from Miami, with all the elements of a marquee vocalist, has delivered breathtaking performances, domestically and internationally with her powerhouse voice. She effortlessly masters both, the English and Spanish language while staying true to her Latin rhythmic roots as she proves in her hits “Last Dance” and “On The Radio” (Salsa Version), the Donna Summer classics she chose as a rendition to the late singer and one of Lucy’s all-time favorite idols. Lucy has found her niche amongst the other feminine talents in the tropical music genre by introducing the era of the Disco Divas to today’s Salsa Sensation, sharing her talents internationally at Salsa Festivals, Congresses and sharing the stage with many talented artists and musicians such as La India, Roberto Torres, Carlos Oliva Y Los Sobrinos Del Juez, Andy Garcia, Tito Nieves, Rey Ruiz, Eddie Santiago, Willy Chirino, Albita, Johnny Ventura, Rolando Laserrie, Miles Peña, and Jose Alberto “El Canario”, among many more. Currently she is working on a full album in tribute to the disco era. About Saints of Havana  Saints of Havana is currently Nashville's top drawing all original unsigned Country/Rock act. It is a musical collaboration between Cuban musician brothers Rey and Cesar Montecristo and their All American front-man, Aaron Shea. After selling out many shows in a row at all of Nashville's top Club-Circuit venues, including the unheard of feat of playing all original shows at venues on lower Broadway, with their self-produced music and over the top live show, the group piqued the interest of legendary management company The Erv. Woolsey Co.(George Strait), who have signed on to further the band's career. Their live show is reminiscent of the great 70's bands, the band displays amazing musical skills and memorable songwriting along with unequaled stage presence. Their music remains true to the Country genre while flawlessly weaving in flavors of flamenco, rock and pop to create a beautiful and alluringly unique sound. Their crossover potential is unequaled in the Country market and their appeal, Universal. Combined with all this is their known propensity for hard work, attention to detail and their love for the fan. They make themselves available to their followers and are very known in Nashville for their friendly demeanors and fun crowd-inclusive shows. They are currently working on their 2nd Studio Album and frequently write material with top Songwriters in the industry. Look for them to be a break-out artist in the coming years. About the Ronald Reagan Building  The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, named after former United States President Ronald Reagan, is the first federal building in Washington, D.C. designed for both governmental and private sector purposes. Each of the organizations located in the Pennsylvania Avenue building are dedicated to international trade and globalization. Organizations headquartered in this building include the U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The first private sector lease was signed with investment banking firm Quarterdeck Investment Partners, Inc. The building hosts conferences, trade shows, cultural events, and outdoor concerts. Post-9/11, security requirements for high-profile federal buildings have limited the amount of public/private access anticipated by the center's designers. -- “America, you look beautiful today” (The Victory Hymn) For more Information on the event, sponsorship opportunities and press, please contact: Evelio Medina  Chairman of the Deplorables Inaugural Ball™  Founder of Deplorables Nation™  Telephone No. 786.728.0008  Email: info@deplorablesinauguralball.com  Website: www.deplorablesinauguralball.com  Mariori De Marcos President  Jordan-Marcos The Agency  255 Alhambra Circle Suite 500  Coral Gables, FL 33134  Telephone No. 305.200.2186  Fax No. 305.713.1210  Email: mdemarcos@jordanmarcos.com  Website: www.jordanmarcos.com Theme:  We The People...To celebrate Freedom and Make America Great Again!


It is often taken for granted that, in a large majority of typical persons, hand preference and hemispheric specialization for language are interrelated. In this article, I argue that there is currently little serious evidence to support this view. I contend that the best way to investigate the true relationship between hand preference and language lateralization would be to look at their codevelopment. Since both hand preference and language asymmetries are expressed very early, even before birth, a systematic comparison of the very early development of both behavioral traits is needed to understand this relationship. At present, such data are clearly lacking. I discuss existing data on the development of hand preference and language asymmetry, and on the relations between the two. I conclude that this evidence favors the view that the two asymmetries develop relatively independently. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

A cholinergic synaptic input has been highlighted in recent years as an important modulator of motoneuron excitability. In the present study, it was examined whether, as in other regions, the cholinergic inputs on spinal motoneurons modulate the glutamatergic synaptic activity, evoked by electrical stimulation at the dorsolateral funiculus. The present results show that the pharmacological stimulation of muscarinic receptors produces a selective depression of AMPA-mediated glutamatergic activity in thoracic and lumbar spinal motoneurons. This effect does not involve a change in transmitter release and occurs both on synaptic currents and on AMPA responses evoked by photolysis of MNI-glutamate. Thus, it is concluded that muscarinic modulation occurs at the postsynaptic level. The results suggest that cholinergic inputs contacting motoneurons, which are known to increase motoneuron excitability, also directly interfere with incoming synaptic inputs by changing their amplitudes. © 2012 The Author.
