Little League’s motto is courage, character, and loyalty. Through playing with and against each other, these student athletes the embodiment of the motto.Jack BoyleBeginning his baseball career on the small diamond at the North and ending it on the North’s Big diamond, Jack Boyle played all 10 years he was eligible for Wilmington Little League. From the Rookie Cyclones to the Senior Astros, Jack is the embodiment of a Little Leaguer, playing at all levels and on all fields.Although he might not have been the biggest or fastest player, that did not deter him from finding success. Over the course of his WLL career he played for his father every single season except one, where he played for Coach Fred Russell. Jack may be the ultimate coaches kid, but he is much more than that. He is an intelligent, versatile player who not only loved to play but spent hours watching and going to games. Over the years, Jack has developed into an outstanding defensive outfielder.  However, whenever a need arose Jack would step in and play any position (excluding catcher). If a coach needed a position filled Jack eagerly volunteered and filled in. There was never a position he would not try for the good of the team. As he got older he became like a coach on the field but never lost the joy of just playing the game.Jack’s first season of WLL, Rookie Cyclones, he played for his father and Cliff Lord. When he hit the diamond it was not like it was the first time he played baseball.  Jack had been playing catch, running bases and hitting since he was in diapers. He was fortunate to play every position for the Cyclones and turned an unassisted triple play while playing pitcher. It was his basic knowledge of the game that helped understand how to turn it. No one understood what happened and stood around not knowing what to do.  Jack continued his career with the Rookie Avalanche, Single A Astros, and finally the AA Giants, before heading to the Majors.Jack was drafted by the Indians as an 11 year old and spent 2 seasons playing for Coach Fred Russell and coaches Jim Boyle and Joe Aucoin.  A defensive stalwart, Jack played 2B and CF for the Indians. One highlight as a 11 year old, were all the walk off wins. Especially the walk off homerun hit by teammate Scott Edwards.  A disappointing end to his first season was a first round loss to the Tigers. This helped motivate Jack into his final Major season. That final season brought several outstanding wins and was highlighted by a Web Gem catch in CF vs the Orioles. Helping the Indians advance to the Semifinals of the playoffs, an improvement from his first year, also stands out. Jack played on the Indians with future Wildcats Riley Zaya and Jarred Aucoin. He really enjoyed hanging out at Rotary and watching his friends play.After completing his Majors career, Jack went on to play four years on the big diamond. It was on the big diamond that he began to focus on becoming an outfielder. He was part of the first group of Juniors to play cross town games vs North Reading, Stoneham and Woburn. He enjoyed traveling to compete against a new set of opponents. Along with the spring teams, Jack played for the Jimmy Fund, Pony and Northeast teams in the summer. He was also a integral part of the first Wilmington Middle School team and helped lead the Wildcats to a 16-5 record and a trip to the semifinals of the playoffs.   The highlight of his summer WLL career was playing on the 2016 Northeast team which was the first Wilmington team to win a Northeast League Division championship.This will be Jack’s first year playing Varsity Baseball for the Wildcats, having competed at the Freshman and JV level for the past three years. He played four years on the WHS Varsity Golf team and two years on the WHS Basketball team.Jack’s family has been an essential part of his baseball career. His mother Kelli, enjoyed watching him play for his dad. Going to Rotary Park, sitting out on the picnic table in left center field, and watching the games is also another memory of hers. For father Jim, there are too many memories to mention however, getting the opportunity to coach Jack for ten years has to be his favorite.Jack will be attending the University of Rhode Island in the fall to study business, where he will be joining his sister Amanda.last_img read more

Disney acquires 21st Century Fox Good or bad for consumers

first_img 21st Century Fox Disney Fox More about the Disney/Fox takeover Now playing: Watch this: This sucks. All three of those films are prime examples of the kinds of movies Disney would *not* make, thus why Fox as an independent studio was valuable. A different, separate studio willing to take a gamble on important and teen-centric stories, now gone.— Adam Chitwood (@adamchitwood) March 21, 2019 Digital Media TV and Movies Others argue this is is a bad thing for consumers, saying Disney essentially has a monopoly on the entertainment industry. Many believe it’s now capable of driving up prices on its services, as well as having too much power in the box office. There are also concerns that Disney can pretty much decide what we see in the media.Here are some negative reactions to the news. Apple will finally reveal its $1 billion-budget TV service CNET readers also have some conflicting stances on the subject. CNET member Mccuerc believes this is bad for consumers and that capitalist system itself is to blame, as it creates a landscape in which we move from too much choice, to far too little.”A monopoly is a bad thing. It destroys choice. A plethora of choices so broad that it paralyzes the consumer is bad. It destroys choice.” — MccuercThis contrasts to CNET member CheddarBob69’s opinion, who argues this is just they lay of the land, and if Disney didn’t do it, somebody else would’ve.”What was Disney gonna do? Pass up a golden opportunity and let the competition get stronger? This is capitalism 101. You don’t like it? Too bad. None of the opinions of being upset or hurt about this affects what has happened. Do I like it? No. Do I respect it? Meh. But we all have to live with it.” — CheddarBob69Whether or not you agree with these readers, the fact does remain, we all have to live with it. Reader’s reactions range from “who cares” to “yay better content” to “oh jeez, another streaming service?”– and we want to know where you stand.Are you excited for all the new possibilities in TV and movies? Does Disney+ now have your interest? Or do you err on the side of caution, where this could possibly be a bad thing for us consumers?

The $71.3 billion dollar deal is one of the largest media mergers ever, and comes with a huge haul of properties such as movies, a movie studio, TV shows, TV networks and even a controlling stake in the TV streaming service Hulu. This is in addition to brands that Disney already owns such as Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars, to name a few.Disney’s own video streaming service, Disney+, is supposed to launch some time this year, so this acquisition makes it primed to have an immediate impact in the video streaming service landscape. Some this is a positive thing, because we’ll see better quality content and competition among the streaming services. That, and franchises such as the Fantastic Four and X-Men can once again be rebooted or become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Take a look a some of the positive reactions around the Twittersphere. The filmed entertainment world is now essentially a three-way fight. With theatrical distribution, it’s Disney/Fox versus Universal/Comcast versus Warner Media And with streaming it’s Disney versus Netflix versus Amazon.

Ecigarettes linked to depression

first_imgUsing e-cigarettes can significantly raise the risk of depression, say researchers, including one of Indian-origin who found that switching to e-cigarettes does not eliminate health risks. The study, by a team from the University of Kansas in the US, showed that e-cigarette users were twice as likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and other emotional problems. In addition, vaping was 56 per cent more likely to lead to a heart attack and 30 per cent more likely to lead to a stroke.

Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe study, which involved 96,467 e-cigarette users from the US, also compared data for reported tobacco smokers and non-smokers. Traditional tobacco cigarette smokers were found to have strikingly higher odds of having a heart attack, coronary artery disease and stroke compared with non-smokers – a 165, 94 and 78 per cent increase respectively. They were also significantly more likely to have high blood pressure, diabetes, circulatory problems and depression or anxiety, according to the findings which will be presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual Scientific Session in New Orleans. “Cigarette smoking carries a much higher probability of heart attack and stroke than e-cigarettes, but that doesn’t mean that vaping is safe,” Vindhyal said. He noted that some e-cigarettes contain nicotine and release toxic compounds very similar to tobacco smoking. Nicotine can quicken heart rate and raise blood pressure.last_img read more
