On Wednesday, TMZ.com reported that Heisman Trophy favorite Jameis Winston is under investigation in an open sexual assault case reported nearly a year ago. But Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer isn’t preparing for any scenario in which the Florida State quarterback doesn’t play on Saturday.“That’s out of my control,” Shafer said during his weekly press conference Thursday. “I just play the guys on the field.”FSU released a statement Wednesday that read that Winston’s status is unchanged for this weekend.“We are aware of a matter that was investigated by the Tallahassee Police Department almost a year ago,” the statement reads. “Because the investigation has not been closed by TPD, we cannot comment further at this time. We look forward to a speedy resolution of the issue. There is no change in Jameis Winston’s status.”For Syracuse, Saturday’s matchup invokes memories of the last time the Orange went up against a Heisman candidate.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn its first Atlantic Coast Conference game, the Orange was thrown right into the fire against quarterback Tajh Boyd. During this week, Shafer asked his team, “What was the last game that felt like this going in?”Clemson.There’s a “fine line,” he said, between being excited and getting too amped up. He admitted that he was probably too amped against the Tigers, but that game was a learning experience. SU now has a similar experience to look back to.“The most valuable thing we need to do going into this one is learn from our past mistakes,” Shafer said, “so we’ve been trying to really do a good job going back through those different scenarios that came up.”Shafer said that SU gave the Tigers 21 points when they played in the Carrier Dome. FSU’s offense is even better, ranking second in the nation behind only No. 4 Baylor.But for Shafer, it’s still just a game of six-second wars — maybe eight seconds because Winston “does a good job of sliding around.” Syracuse will have to win its fair share of wars to pull off a stunning upset.“We’ve got no chance in hell according to the stat books and all that other stuff,” Shafer said. “I still think we should go play them, though.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 14, 2013 at 11:44 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2

Most of the state will be at or below normal rainfall into the start of November. However, the far northern tier of Ohio will see normal to above normal rainfall putting pressure on wet conditions and challenge harvest in the far north and northeast part of the state.After a start to November not really wet except far north, most climate models indicate a return to a more active weather pattern for middle and later November. Along with the wetter pattern will come temperatures several degrees above normal.Most areas will see the delayed freeze that was forecast for many months come to pass in early November, a few weeks behind schedule.The outlook for winter calls for near normal temperatures and slightly above normal precipitation.Early indications for next planting season in spring call for near normal temperatures and slightly above normal precipitation.Over the next two weeks, the NOAA/NWS/Ohio River Forecast Center 16-day weather models mean rainfall is around an inch in southern Ohio to three plus inches in far northern Ohio.

The existing light might be a little harsh on the eyes. Buy some tracing paper to soften the light and make sure you buy the same fluorescent tubes that exist on your location so that you don’t have any colour matching problem. My gaffer carries a few Kinos but he will also buy regular tube fixtures from the hardware store so that there won’t be a colour shift between what we add and what exists on a location. Kinos won’t match the tubes that exist at your location unless you add gel to the Kino or change all the tubes on the location.Where else can you get that kind of access and willingness to share with absolute beginners?

Subscription based licenses continue to grow in popularity despite initial criticism.Executives at Adobe Systems have stated that subscriptions to the Creative Cloud have reached an all-time high at 1.8 million. With an increase of over 405,000, the first quarter of 2014 has also proven to be the fastest growing quarter for subscribers since the Creative Cloud was released in 2012. The company is also reporting more revenue than ever and expecting an equally successful amount of growth throughout 2014.As stated in 2013, Adobe plans to completely shutdown their perpetual software licenses and move to subscription-only licenses.This news comes at a time when perpetual license software vs. subscription based licensing is battling for the market. In a recent conference call with investors Adobe CFO Mark Garrett stated “We will soon end general availability of CS6 perpetual licensing in the channel. This decision is consistent with our comments last December, when we stated we expected no material revenue from perpetual licensing of CS6 in the second half of fiscal 2014.”Adobe also stated that they plan on launching an exciting new offering to their creative cloud subscribers which should be released later this year. The offering is expected to be “so strong that CS6 will look longer in the tooth” says Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen.Although subscription based downloads seem to make it cheaper and easier for creatives to get the latest software, there has been serious pushback from some in the industry (FCPX and Avid lovers, for instance). But one thing is for sure, If Adobe keeps growing as fast as they are now, Apple and Avid will have to make a significant counteroffer.What do you think about Adobe getting rid of perpetual licenses?Do you like the Creative Cloud?

Do you remember this man? Bobby Jack Fowler may be linked to seven other Highway of Tears cases.By Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsThe RCMP said Tuesday investigators had linked at least three “Highway of Tears” murders to a U.S. serial killer who died from lung cancer in 2006 while serving time in an Oregon prison.Investigators with the RCMP’s Project E-PANA, the British Columbia-based task force probing Highway of Tears cold cases, said Bobby Jack Fowler murdered a 16 year-old girl and was strongly suspected of killing two 19 year-olds in the province during the 1970s.The investigators said they suspected Fowler could also be linked to seven other case involving murders and disappearances of women from Highways 97, 16 and 5, in the B.C. interior between Prince George and Prince Rupert.The Highway of Tears investigation is focusing on a total of 18 cases ranging from 1969 to 2006 which are all linked by their close proximity to the three highways. The cases involve 13 murders and five missing women investigations. The majority of the cases involve First Nations women.The RCMP said a second serial killer may also be responsible for some of the murders. Investigators have identified three suspects in connection with three murders. In at least two of the cases the RCMP believes the linked suspects killed only once.It took a world first in police investigations for the RCMP to link Fowler with the 1974 murder of Colleen MacMillen, a 16 year-old from Lac La Hache, B.C.MacMillen was last seen hitchhiking on Hwy 97 on Aug. 9, 1974. She was later found murdered off a logging road about 46 kilometres south from her last known location.Earlier this year, as a result of new DNA identification technology, the RCMP submitted the DNA of an unknown male that had been isolated in MacMillen’s case to Interpol’s foreign DNA database. On May 3, Oregon State Police made a match, the oldest DNA match in history.The RCMP also believes that Fowler is linked to the 1973 murder of Gale West, 19, and the killing of Pamela Darlington, 19, that same year. He was known to travel Hwy 16.“These are just two of the cases we are looking for connections to, but we are fully open to the possibility that Fowler committed other violent offences against women that may or may not have been reported to police,” said Ins. Gary Shinkaruk, officer in charge of the B.C. RCMP Major Crime, Special Projects Unit.The RCMP, however, would not reveal how Fowler killed his victims.Fowler died at age 66 in prison while serving time for the 1995 kidnapping and attempted rape of a woman who fled from his grasp by jumping out a second floor window at the Tides Inn Motel in Newport, Oregon, naked, with a rope tied to her ankle.Oregon authorities have linked Fowler to at least four unsolved murders of teen girls.A drifter, who did odd jobs, drove old cars into the ground and moved between U.S. states and across the international border, Fowler had an extensive, violent criminal history in the U.S. but left barely a trace during his time in Canada.Shinkaruk said the U.S.-born Fowler had criminal convictions spanning several states that included attempted murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, sexual assault, arson, kidnapping and attempted sexual assault.Fowler had a deceptively charming and disarming personality which could darken on a moment’s notice and would then become extremely aggressive and violent with often deadly aims. He often acted under the twisted belief that women who hitchhiked, went to taverns or bars desired to be violently sexually assaulted.“A number of living victims that provided information to us…that is disturbing and graphic in nature,” said Shinkaruk. “Some living individuals stated that his intention was to actually kill them.”The RCMP teamed up with the F.B.I., 31 law enforcement agencies and 11 state correctional departments, in the investigation into Fowler that led all the way to Texas where he once killed a man in 1970 but escaped conviction on the death.The RCMP interviewed Fowler’s family in the U.S., who suspected him of murdering one of their own, associates and cell mates in hopes of uncovering bits of information that would shed light on the killer’s time in Canada.RCMP investigators managed to create a timeline for Fowler’s movement spanning the last 40 years, but still faced extensive gaps from his time in B.C..“Our challenge had been determining with certainty Fowler’s history here in British Columbia,” said Shinkaruk.Despite his vicious criminal history in the U.S., there is no trace of Fowler in Canadian police databases. Investigators uncovered that he worked for Prince George roofing company, Happy’s Roofing, in 1974. The company’s records now no longer exist.Shinkaruk said the RCMP was releasing photos of Fowler and a video in hopes of stirring the memories of residents in the area.“We believe there are people out there who employed Fowler, worked with him, socialized with him or even waited on him while he was in British Columbia,” he said. “We are asking you to think back to the 70s, 80s and 90s, and your own memories of that time period, then have a look at his photos and please call us with any information you have about him.”Shawn MacMillan, Colleen MacMillan’s brother, said news that the RCMP finally found his sister’s killer was bitter-sweet at best.The RCMP is also exploring whether Fowler travelled in the neighbouring province of Alberta or up in the Yukon or Northwest Territories.“It has been a long wait for answers and though as a somewhat unsatisfactory result because this individual won’t stand trial for what he did, we are comforted by the fact that he was in prison when he died and he can’t hurt anyone else,” said Shawn MacMillan. “Colleen was a lovely, sweet 16 year-old kid and there are no words to express how terribly she was robbed.”[email protected]
