Balanced Orange prepares for No. 4 Virginia, nation’s leading scorer

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ In the past 13 games, forward Elly Buckley has been unstoppable for No. 4 Virginia.No matter which team has lined up on the opposite sideline, she has had her way offensively. The senior from Australia already has 17 goals and 40 points, both of which lead the country.In fact, she has singlehandedly outscored the Cavaliers’ opponents by four goals prior to this weekend.But as No. 5 Syracuse (8-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) prepares to face Buckley and the rest of the No. 4 Cavaliers (12-1, 1-1) on Saturday at J.S. Coyne Stadium at 1 p.m., the team is confident that strength in numbers can trump the explosiveness of one individual.The Orange also faces Monmouth (3-6) on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Coyne.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When another team looks to play us, they don’t have just one player that they need to shut down,” sophomore Emma Russell said. “They have like four, five, six … everyone on the field basically.”Lauren Brooks leads the team with seven goals, but Russell, Leonie Geyer and Alyssa Manley are right behind her at six tallies each.Junior Jordan Page said that scoring goals and winning games is much easier with many players that can execute on offense.“When you look at a scouting report for us, you never know who could score on any given day,” Page said. “It definitely helps. It makes a balanced attack and it makes it hard for an opposing team to pick out one person to really watch for.”In no conference is that ability to execute more important than the ACC. As Syracuse found out on Sept. 20, sometimes it’s possible to dominate an opponent and still lose big.“There’s so many intangibles,” head coach Ange Bradley said, “like North Carolina outshot Duke 35 to something like 11 and they lost the game. Us outshooting (Boston College) a lot to a little and we lost the game. There’s just so much that goes into it.”Bradley said that being in the ACC teaches players that no game can be taken lightly. For the Orange, that includes its nonconference tilt with Monmouth.“It’s all the learning curve of going into this league that you’re always on the line,” she said. “You have a job to do one day at a time. First is Virginia and when we finish with Virginia, we’ll get ready for Monmouth.”Thus, the current focus still lies on the Cavaliers.Page said full effort is required on defense to shut down Buckley’s attack and take her out of the game.If the Orange can do that, it can win a statement game in front of the home crowd and send a message to the rest of the conference.“We’ve always been a top five program in the country,” Page said. “But coming into the ACC after a loss to Boston College, I’m sure teams are underestimating our ability to play there. It would be a huge win.”It would also prove that against a well-balanced attack, no one player is unstoppable.“Our team as a whole has fantastic players, and I think we can kind of use each other to shut her down,” Russell said. “The key to this weekend will be working as a team and making sure we do that for the full 70 minutes both days.” Comments Published on October 3, 2013 at 1:16 am Contact Tyler: [email protected]last_img read more

Atlanta Braves starter Kris Medlen to play against Dodgers, not with them

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ATLANTA — Kris Medlen dreamed of a playoff scenario with the Dodgers, all right.Just not exactly like the one in which he’ll have a starring role.Medlen, who grew up in Cerritos, figured he’d be an infielder for the Dodgers. He envisioned the wrong team and wrong position, but Medlen sure is in great position for the Braves as their Game 1 starter against the Dodgers in the National League Division Series on Thursday.“It’s a pretty cool feeling being able to play against them during the regular season,” Medlen said. “I think (there’s) the fact that I’ve had a couple years in the big leagues to kind of get over that love for the Dodgers. “We’ve missed him twice this year, the both times we played this series, but I think our team, with the confidence we have, he missed us,” Medlen said.Medlen will miss Matt Kemp — out for the postseason with a left ankle injury — but will need to keep Hanley Ramirez, Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez and company in check if he’s to hand things over to the back of a stingy Braves bullpen.Medlen was the unlikeliest of Game 1 starters four months ago, but he is the Braves’ best chance to go toe-to-toe with Kershaw.“Medlen, he’s earned it,” Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “He’s a guy that pitched a big game for us last year. He pitched that St. Louis Cardinals play-in game, so he’s got that going for him.”Medlen started for the Braves last year in its 6-3 loss to St. Louis in the NL wild-card playoff game. Medlen gave up just two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings, but Atlanta had three errors. He was 10-1 in 12 starts in 2012 before that game.“I think the buildup and anxiety of playing in a Game 7-type of situation last year didn’t get to me,” Medlen said. “I just thought it was more than a regular-season game than it typically is.“I think we’re in a different situation this year. We have a chance to win a series instead of one game, although every game matters.”He’s caught the attention of Kershaw too.“Medlen has a good changeup,” Kershaw said. “He’s been pitching awesome too, the last month or so, and obviously he’s had some success.”So have the Braves, who won 96 games, but some players were vocal with their frustration that the Dodgers and their big-name superstars were garnering more attention than the young, lesser-known Braves.“All the attention, I mean, we’re not running for prom king,” Medlen said.He looks young enough to run for prom king with a boyish face and skater-like way he wears his hat. But he’s got good stuff, and that’s what matters in October.“He has location with all his pitches and (good) movement on his fastball,” Atlanta catcher Brian McCann said. “For me, he has the best changeup in baseball. His curveball is very good. He can throw any pitch in any count. He’s a confident guy.”Confident enough to envision a day when he would play major league baseball.Just against the Dodgers, not with them.center_img “It’s cool to face them, but they’re just another team.”Medlen, who turns 28 on Monday, looks every part the California kid on the mound with that signature flat-brim baseball cap.He looked none of the part of a Game 1 playoff starter early in the season. Medlen was 1-6 in May — rivaling the Dodgers’ dismal start — but he credited simplifying things for his turnaround.He was 4-0 in September with a 1.00 ERA and was named the National League’s pitcher of the month.Pitching like that gives you the swagger necessary to take part in a pitching duel with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, the favorite to win his second Cy Young Award this season. Medlen was 15-12 with a 3.11 ERA in the regular season and won one fewer game than Kershaw.last_img read more

Extension Source Viewer for Firefox

first_imgExtension Source Viewer for Firefox by Martin Brinkmann on September 05, 2016 in Firefox – Last Update: June 25, 2017 – 12 commentsExtension Source Viewer is a free browser add-on for the Firefox web browser that enables you to view the source code of Firefox add-ons and Chrome extensions.It is recommended to verify that browser add-ons are legitimate before you install them in your browser.  The reason for this is simple: browser extensions may record, transfer, or change what you do on the Internet.Malicious extensions may grab passwords or sensitive information you enter, others may throw annoying ads on sites you visit, and a third kind may record your browsing history and create profiles to sell them to the highest bidder.While you may get some reassurance by reading user reviews and ratings, or looking at the extensions track record, it may not be enough for the vast majority of extensions out there.New extensions for instance may not have any ratings yet, and they don’t have a track record either.The only surefire way of making sure that an extension is legitimate and not malicious or problematic is to look at the source code.This is obviously problematic for users who don’t understand JavaScript, but there is no way around this.Extension Source Viewer for FirefoxExtension Source Viewer for the Firefox web browser supports Firefox add-ons and Chrome extensions.It indicates its functionality in Firefox’s address bar when it detects an extension on a page, and may also be activated from the right-click context menu.The main difference between functionality that the address bar icon and the right-click context menu entry offer is that the address bar icon supports downloading the extension as a zip file next to viewing its source directly in the browser.The viewing of the source code works pretty much as you’d expect it to. Once you select the option, the source code of the extension is opened in a new tab.Since it is made up of multiple files, you get a listing of all those files on the left to quickly go through them. Selecting a file displays its code on the right.You may use the filter option on top of the file listing to find particular files quickly. One interesting option is the ability to filter certain types of files. You may hide images or locales for instance to reduce the number of files listed on the left.The source code uses color coding, but that is about it. You may select and copy any code, which may come in handy if you want to research certain functions.The links at the top right open the page of the extension on the official repository, download it to the local system, or load an open dialog that enables you to load another browser add-on to view its source.Good news is that the add-on supports both Firefox add-ons and Chrome extensions. Since you may load a percentage of Chrome extensions in Firefox, it is good that the extension supports Chrome extensions as well.The Firefox add-on works for the most part like its Chrome cousin Chrome Extension Source Viewer.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 4 votes Software Name Extension Source ViewerSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more
