The outdoor exhibition of the Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding has opened in Betina

first_imgThe newly opened exhibition complements the Museum’s permanent exhibition, and its in situ placement, by placing objects in their original context, greatly facilitates the interpretation of Betina’s gajeta, leuta, pasara and other ships in the harbor. Significant awards that the museum has won in its four years of work, of which the last one, this year’s “European Heritage Award“For achievements in the field of education, training and awareness raising will remain permanently recorded as a positive example of museum practice. Emphasizing satisfaction with the efforts and efforts invested in preserving and promoting the art of construction as an intangible cultural heritage, Minister of Culture Nina Obuljen Koržinek said that shipbuilders, caulkers, who selflessly pass on their knowledge and skills to all younger generations are equally responsible for all successes. The Minister pointed out as the most valuable intangible good the strong connection of the local community with shipbuilders and shipowners, which is confirmed by the very name of this communication between the port and the Museum, which is called “Shipbuilder’s Trail”. The museum preserves the knowledge of traditional wooden shipbuilding, which is an indispensable part of Croatian maritime heritage, and thus an important part of European maritime cultural heritage. The Betina Wooden Shipbuilding Museum is hosting this year’s 25th forum, which was joined by members of the European Maritime Heritage Organization (EMH).center_img The opening of the museum took place within the International Forum of Maritime Heritage of the Mediterranean, organized by the Association of Mediterranean Maritime Museums (AMMM). On Saturday, June 8, the outdoor exhibition of the Betina Wooden Shipbuilding Museum was opened, whose exhibits in their natural ambience testify to the excellent technique of traditional wooden shipbuilding, but also to the method of maintenance, their multiple purposes, sailing and traditional materials.

Liverpool boys basketball breaks skid, finishes season sweep of Corcoran

first_imgBefore all this, Liverpool lost 59-52 to Henninger last Wednesday at Jamesville-DeWitt, which dropped the Warriors to 4-7, a seasonal low point that the Corcoran win helped to correct.Back on Tuesday night, Cicero-North Syracuse took a 1-9 record to Camillus and nearly upended reigning state Class AA champion West Genesee before taking a 64-61 defeat.A close first half gave the Northstars some belief as it only trailed by one, 29-28, at the break. Then it outscored the Wildcats 16-9 to take a 44-38 lead, led by Luke Paragon, who would finish with 20 points and eight rebounds.Not panicking, WG reeled in C-NS during the fourth quarter, went back in front and held tight as Will Amica’s 15 points led a balanced effort. Adam Dudzinski put in 13 points, with John Benson getting 10 points.Joe Penizotto had 12 points, all from four 3-pointers which matched Paragon’s total. Grant Sennett earned nine points, with Brian Bonin getting seven points and 10 rebounds.Now C-NS would travel to Baldwinsville Friday night, looking to reverse a 66-45 defeat to the J.J. Starling-led Bees in mid-December.And for a long while, it looked like the Northstars would break that skid, but it all went away in the fourth quarter of a 68-65 defeat to the Bees.Over the course of the second and third periods, C-NS outplayed B’ville and moved out in front, and early in the fourth quarter it led 55-48, largely due to Paragaon, who led the Northstars with 29 points and nine rebounds.But just like it did earlier in the week against Corcoran (when Starling had 38 points), B’ville saved its best work for the final minutes, outscoring C-NS 20-10 the rest of the way.Starling finished with 27 points, including four 3-pointers. Bo Nicholson and Chase Trombley each had 15 points as, behind Paragon, Bonin had 14 points and six rebounds, while Sennett had 12 points and seven rebounds.C-NS was able to turn around on Saturday and finally get its second win of the season, topping Rochester’s Edison Tech 64-59 with another big performance from Paragon, who had 32 points as Tavores Flournory had eight points and Jerrod Hills got seven points.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Sharp out of the gate in the rematch, the Warriors led 21-9 by the end of the first quarter. Then it traded baskets until a productive third period where Liverpool’s edge grew to 66-46.Despite the Cougars’ De’Jour Reaves scoring 32 points, the Warriors controlled the game with superior depth, led by Jack Pento, who set a career mark with 22 points, including a trio of 3-pointers.Jacob Works, with 19 points, was close behind, while Clarke had 11 points and Josh Young had 10 points. Kyle Caves got eight points. From the joy it generated in December with a series of close victories, the Liverpool boys basketball team found itself at a serious crossroads in mid-January.Having lost six in a row, the Warriors faced Corcoran last Friday night and, perhaps just in time, broke that skid by putting together an impressive 77-70 victory over the Cougars.Corcoran was 8-3, but one of those defeats had come to Liverpool on Dec. 14, a 66-64 classic won on Romeo Clarke’s buzzer-beating baseline jumper.center_img Tags: boys basketballC-NSliverpoollast_img read more

Offensive line hopes to rebound against Iowa

first_imgMATTHEW KUTZ/Herald photoWith a potential Big Ten title and BCS bowl bid on the line Saturday, the 2005 Wisconsin football team came back to earth as the Badgers suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Penn State Nittany Lions.The Badgers, who entered the game with only one Big Ten loss, were dominated by a superior team in nearly every facet of the game.Among the units being exploited, perhaps the most surprising and apparent was that of the offensive line. The unit had dominated opposing defenses all season long and had been a major factor in the team’s success thus far.Badger fans had grown accustomed to seeing gaping holes for running back Brian Calhoun and excellent pocket protection for quarterback John Stocco. In Happy Valley Saturday, Calhoun being swarmed by defenders and Stocco lying flat on his back became all too familiar sights.Leading the way for Penn State was defensive end Tamba Hali, who recorded four sacks and had seven tackles for a loss. Hali, a senior playing in his final game at Beaver Stadium, ran around or over most of the blockers Wisconsin threw his way. “[Hali’s] a heck of a football player,” offensive line coach Jim Hueber said. “He was throwing a lot of different things at us and our guys did their best. We just have to forget about it and move on.”While the offensive line knows it was playing a superior opponent Saturday, no one is making excuses, and all maintain their lackluster performance was not a matter of effort but rather a lack execution and proper technique.”I was disappointed with our performance. We came out and played physical against them, but you got to give them credit. I mean, they’re a heck of a defensive line,” senior guard Joe Thomas said. “Against a team like them, you have be perfect in technique and executing assignments, and we weren’t perfect on Saturday. When that happens, you allow defenses to make big plays on you, and that’s what they did.”Despite a rough day at the office, the offensive line remains confident in its abilities and believes it is still the unit which contributed to the Badgers’ potent offensive attack and the No. 1-scoring offense in the Big Ten.”We don’t feel like we have anything to prove,” sophomore guard Kraig Urbik said. “We’ve been strong all season long, and we just need to regroup and play this game like we’re supposed to and like we know we can.”Next up for the Badgers is their final home game against Big Ten rival Iowa. The Hawkeyes, who are 5-4 on the year, have a capable defense that has allowed 19 points per game this year and recorded a total of 17 sacks.Iowa has a strong defensive line but generally uses its linebackers to get pressure and get to the quarterback. Inside linebacker Abdul Hodge leads the Hawkeyes’ linebacking corps and received preseason honors that included a third-team all-American selection. He was also ranked the No. 4 inside linebacker by The Sporting News. Hodge, who has been shredding offensive lines all season, has one sack and 112 tackles on the year.”Their defense is keyed by their linebackers,” Thomas said. “They’re a very highly regarded unit in the Big Ten, and they’re really outstanding linebackers. Their defense tries to eat up the o-line and let the linebackers run free, so we got to know where the linebackers are at all times and get to them.”After such a devastating defeat, it is important for the offensive line to have a short-term memory and maintain its composure. Among the veterans on the offensive line is Thomas, who has taken it upon himself to right the ship.”I consider myself a leader on the offensive line and on the offense as a whole,” Thomas said. “Every week we go out, and I personally try to make things go as smoothly as possible and motivate the guys. I try to keep everyone where they should be, and I’ll do the same this weekend.”last_img read more
