First Heatwave Expected Next Week On Sunday, August 18, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy (FSHA) welcomed the Class of 2017 at the New Family Social. The theme was â€œTolog Tropical Oasis,â€ which transformed the Student Activities Center into an island paradise with palm-frond centerpieces, scattered seashells and yards of blue tulle. While parents mingled, the new students cheerfully greeted one anotherâ€”many of whom were middle-school friends reuniting after a long summer. Joining the day students were FSHA’s new boarding students, who had moved in earlier that day.After a program that featured remarks from President Sister Carolyn McCormack, O.P., Principal Sister Celeste Marie Botello, O.P., senior administrators, and parent volunteers, along with 9th-grade teacher introductions, families were treated to a buffet of burgers, pulled pork, cole slaw and potato salad. And once dinner finished, the new Tologs scooped up bags of candy and cookies from a dessert bar, then posed for pictures with playful ocean props. Excitement lingered long into the night, and these Tologs left ready to start the new school year.Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy (FSHA), 440 St. Katherine Drive, Â La CaÃ±ada Fltrdg, (626) 685-8500 or visit www.fsha.org.

Understanding the connectivity between breeding and nonbreeding populations of migratory birds is fundamental to our knowledge of biological phenomena such as population dynamics and dispersal. Moreover, our ability to quantify migratory connectivity has inevitable consequences for both conservation and management of species that utilize distinct geographic locations. Technology is rapidly advancing our ability to track birds throughout the annual cycle and to collect data on the degree of connectivity among breeding and nonbreeding populations. We combined two direct methods, mark recapture (n = 17) and geolocation (n = 6), to estimate the migratory connectivity of breeding and nonbreeding populations of Gray Catbirds (Dumetella carolinensis). Data from geolocators show that birds breeding in the Mid-Atlantic overwinter in both Cuba and southern Florida. Mark recapture data supported our geolocator results but also provided a broader spatial perspective by documenting that Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern populations occupy distinct geographic localities during the nonbreeding period. This research underscores the importance of geolocators, as well as other tools, to advance our understanding of migratory connectivity. Finally, our results highlight the potential value of U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Bird Banding Laboratory mark recapture data, which are often underutilized in ornithological research.

Arsenal’s limitations were exposed by an impressive Schalke 04 as they slumped to Champions League defeat at Emirates Stadium.The Bundesliga side took control of Group B as goals in the final 15 minutes from Klaas Jan-Huntelaar and Ibrahim Afellay gave the Germans a victory their superiority fully deserved.With Arsene Wenger in the directors’ box serving the final game of a three-match touchline ban and assistant Steve Bould in charge on the touchline, Arsenal never made any serious impression on a night of sheer frustration.And once Schalke worked out Brazilian left-back Andre Santos was the glaring weak link in the Arsenal line-up, they probed ruthlessly and to great effect to end the Gunners’ 100% record in the competition.Arsenal will still feel confident of qualification for the knockout phase after victories over Montpellier and Olympiakos – but Schalke are now in pole position to take top spot in the group and potentially earn an easier draw in the last 16. It was a tough night for Arsenal and Wenger as Schalke showed a potency in attack that was way beyond anything the hosts could offer, a fact reflected in the loud jeers that rang around the ground at the final whistle. Gervinho was entrusted with the attacking responsibilities with Olivier Giroud left on the bench, but he struggled throughout and was eventually put out of his misery with a substitution.Arsenal survived a scare after 20 minutes when Afellay, on loan from Barcelona, went down in the area under a challenge from goalkeeper Vito Mannone after a slight hesitation from Carl Jenkinson – but referee Jonas Eriksson ruled that the winger had dived and he was punished with a yellow card.Opportunities were at a premium and when Gervinho did break away he was isolated and crowded out by Schalke defenders as he attempted to work his way into the box.Schalke were targeting the wayward positioning of Santos but were running into a formidable barrier in the shape of Germany defender Per Mertesacker, whose performance was exemplified by a brave block from a Jefferson Farfan shot.Santos was nowhere to be seen as Atsuto Uchida broke into the area and Arsenal were fortunate the normally lethal Huntelaar was wayward with his finish at the near post. And in another break into the same left-flank territory just after the break, Benedikt Howedes should have done better than fire over the top from Farfan’s cross.Gervinho was feeling the frustration of Arsenal’s fans but he almost created the opener with a direct run and cross – but no colleagues were waiting to apply the final touch as the ball flashed across goal.There was to be no further opportunity for Gervinho to redeem himself as he was replaced by Giroud in an attempt to inject impetus into the hosts’ attack.Schalke had been the more threatening team throughout and it was no surprise when they took the lead with 14 minutes left. Santos was once again culpable, playing Huntelaar on side as he chased Afellay and this time the Netherlands striker made no mistake.Afellay completed the job with four minutes left, converting the simplest of chances after Farfan had once again embarrassed the labouring Santos.
There are only eight days left until the beginning of the biggest sports event in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) after the 14th Olympics, the European Youth Olympic Festival EYOF in Sarajevo and East Sarajevo, Federal News Agency reports.General Secretary of the Olympic Committee (OC) of BiH Said Fazlagic stated that “preparations are going as planned even with certain problems that are being solved”.“We are all excited for EYOF and the opening ceremony, which will be great. We want to organize the best EYOF ever,” Fazlagic told FENA.He added that representatives of EOC, led by President Janez Kocijancic and vice presidents, will arrive in Sarajevo two days before EYOF.“Guests will also include presidents and general secretaries of all 50 European national Olympic committees, the entire Executive Board of EOC, as well as representatives of the International Olympic Committee – IOC. We still expect confirmation for the attendance of IOC President Thomas Bach and a few other members of this umbrella Olympic organization,” emphasized Fazlagic.
In ways both literally and figuratively the NASCAR Cup Series field saw red most of Saturday afternoon.Kevin Harvick’s red No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford was out front the majority of the afternoon — leading a race-best 92 of the 161 laps — but five restarts in the final 30 laps, including an overtime finish, forced Harvick, “The Closer,” to close out the win. Hamlin, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, Bubba Wallace and Kurt Busch completed the top 10.Below are the complete results from the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan:FinishDriver1Kevin Harvick2Brad Keselowski3Martin Truex Jr.4Ryan Blaney5Kyle Busch6Denny Hamlin7Chase Elliott8Joey Logano9Bubba Wallace10Kurt Busch11Erik Jones12Jimmie Johnson13Christopher Bell14William Byron15Matt DiBenedetto16Aric Almirola17Matt Kenseth18Tyler Reddick19Clint Bowyer20Chris Buescher21Alex Bowman22Corey LaJoie23Ty Dillon24Daniel Suarez25Ryan Preece26JJ Yeley27Quin Houff28Ryan Newman29Michael McDowell30Reed Sorenson31Austin Dillon32Ricky Stenhouse Jr.33Timmy Hill34Cole Custer35Garrett Smithley36John Hunter Nemechek37Brennan Poole38James Davison39Joey GaseHolly Cain writes for the NASCAR Wire Service. NASCAR AT MICHIGAN: Highlights from Saturday’s opening race”This was just an awesome car to drive today,” Harvick said.Below is more about Harvick’s win, plus the complete results of Saturday’s FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan.Who won the NASCAR race yesterday?Kevin Harvick dominated the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway, resulting in his third Michigan win in the last four races and the fourth of his career. It was also his fifth win of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season, tying him with Denny Hamlin for most in the series this [email protected] WINS AGAIN at @MISpeedway!He took the W in overtime, tying him with Lee Petty on @NASCAR’s all-time wins list. pic.twitter.com/vrlfruKDFo— NASCAR on NBC (@NASCARonNBC) August 8, 2020Harvick edged Michigan native Brad Keselowski by 0.284 seconds for the victory on a final overtime restart. “Kevin is just super-fast on the straightaways and doesn’t give up anything in the corner,” said Keselowski, who was hoping to become the first Michigan native to win a NASCAR Cup Series race at the state’s famed two-miler. “We’ve got some work to do.”Keselowski was referring to the second half of the Michigan doubleheader weekend, which features another scheduled 156-lap race Sunday, the Consumers Energy 400 (4:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).The lineup for Sunday’s race was set in a unique way — inverting the top 20 finishers on Saturday. That means 20th-place Chris Buescher and 19th-place Clint Bowyer will start out front.NASCAR results at MichiganMartin Truex Jr., Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch rounded out the top five after Harvick and Keselowski. Busch was racing for the win when Harvick’s car almost made contact with Busch’s car. The resulting change in air flow caused Busch’s car to get loose and nearly hit the outside wall.”Felt like we had a fast car,” said Busch, the reigning series champion who is still looking for his first victory of the season. “But it was the best of the rest. The 4 car (Harvick) was lights out. He deserved to win the race. It was a race for second today.”
