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.

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.

Current Opinion in Neurobiology | Year: 2015

Early experience with speech and language, starting in the womb, has been shown to shape perceptual and learning abilities, paving the way for language development. Indeed, recent studies suggest that prenatal experience with speech, which consists mainly of prosodic information, already impacts how newborns perceive speech and produce communicative sounds. Similarly, the newborn brain already shows specialization for speech processing, resembling that of the adult brain. Yet, newborns' early preparedness for speech is broad, comprising many universal perceptual abilities. During the first years of life, experience narrows down speech perception, allowing the child to become a native listener and speaker. Concomitantly, the neural correlates of speech and language processing become increasingly specialized. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

This article investigates the long-term consequences of the printing press in the nineteenth century sub-Saharan Africa on social capital nowadays. Protestant missionaries were the first to import the printing press and to allow the indigenous population to use it. We build a new geocoded dataset locating Protestant missions in 1903. This dataset includes, for each mission station, the geographic location and its characteristics, as well as the printing-, educational-, and healthrelated investments undertaken by the mission. We show that, within regions close to missions, proximity to a printing press is associated with higher newspaper readership, trust, education, and political participation.

Cortical neurons receive balanced excitatory and inhibitory synaptic currents. Such a balance could be established and maintained in an experience-dependent manner by synaptic plasticity at inhibitory synapses. We show that this mechanism provides an explanation for the sparse firing patterns observed in response to natural stimuli and fits well with a recently observed interaction of excitatory and inhibitory receptive field plasticity. The introduction of inhibitory plasticity in suitable recurrent networks provides a homeostatic mechanism that leads to asynchronous irregular network states. Further, it can accommodate synaptic memories with activity patterns that become indiscernible from the background state but can be reactivated by external stimuli. Our results suggest an essential role of inhibitory plasticity in the formation and maintenance of functional cortical circuitry.


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.
