Mississippi Valley State dropped to 0-6 with the loss.Sophomore Bri Singh led the Lady Lions with two goals, while freshman Maggie Ramsey, junior Cheyenne Maxwell and junior Kayla Vera each found the net. Four Southeastern players – junior Megan Simon, freshman Maddie Kresevic, freshman Ana Zadro and freshman Kim Porche – scored the first collegiate goals of their careers.Sophomore Katie Noonan chipped in with three assists to run her team-high season total to seven. Singh, Ramsey, Simon, junior Gisenia Utreras and sophomore Amber Lasher each also were credited with assists for SLU.Every Lady Lion who was dressed saw action. Sophomores Hope Sabadash and Casey Jeanfreau split time in goal, as Southeastern posted its sixth shutout of the season.“We were very pleased with the effort today,” Southeastern head coach Blake Hornbuckle commented. “We moved the ball well and were able to finish the opportunities we created. We were able to give some players some experience, while allowing our starters to have an opportunity to rest.”Noonan’s patented long throw-in led to Southeastern’s first goal less than two minutes into the match. Ramsey was able to get a foot on the ball that MVSU failed to clear, scoring from close range. The Mission Viejo, California native’s sixth goal of the season put the Lady Lions up, 1-0.In the 13th minute, Singh stole the ball from MVSU and passed to Ramsey who played a ball ahead to a streaking Maxwell. The Sacramento, California native calmly deposited her third goal of the season into the back of the net for a 2-0 SLU lead.Singh got into the scoring act less than two minutes later, as she got just enough of a foot on a pass from Utreras to give the Lady Lions a 3-0 advantage less than 14 minutes into the match.Vera drilled an unassisted goal in the 18th minute, as the Vancouver, Washington native pushed the lead to 4-0 with her fourth goal of the season. Exactly a minute later, Singh scored off another Noonan throw-in to put Southeastern up, 5-0. The goal was the team-high ninth of the season for the Lancaster, California native, already matching her 2013 season total.Zadro closed out the Southeastern first-half scoring in the 24th minute, taking a Noonan pass and finishing from close range. The Mississauga, Ontario, Canada native’s first career goal sent Southeastern into the break with a commanding 6-0 lead.A beautiful combination resulted in Southeastern’s first goal of the second half in the 52nd minute. Simon played a ball into Lasher, who tapped it right to Kresevic. The Solon, Ohio native deposited the ball into the net for a 7-0 SLU lead.In the 61st minute, Simon hit a beautiful shot into the upper right corner of the net. The Mandeville native and Fontainebleau High School alum pushed the Lady Lion edge to 8-0.Another Louisiana product, Porche, capped the scoring in the 63rd minute. The Luling native who prepped at Academy of Our Lady High School scored unassisted to provide the final 9-0 margin.Southeastern will be back in action on Friday, hosting Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 4 p.m. at the Southeastern Soccer Complex. Mississippi Valley St. 0, Southeast Louisiana 9Southern 0, Lamar 4 – Return to top – BEAUMONT, Texas – Bailey Fontenot tied the Lamar record with her 12th career shutout to highlight the Lady Cardinals’ 4-0 win over visiting Texas Southern in a non-conference women’s soccer game Monday.Fontenot, a senior out of nearby Hardin-Jefferson High School, made five saves as she equaled the career mark set by Jennifer Gibbs.It was a strong effort by Fontenot, who was lifted after halftime of Sunday’s 7-2 loss at Louisiana-Lafayette after allowing four goals and making just one save.“The key was her confidence throughout the whole game tonight,” Lamar coach Orlando Cervantes said of Fontenot. “She was very aggressive and very physical tonight.”Kimmy Albeno led the Lamar offense with two goals as the Lady Cardinals (2-5) snapped a five-game losing streak. Freshmen M.J. Eckart and A.V. Vigil each scored their first career goals for Lamar.“To come back without any rest and play as well as we did was great,” Cervantes said. “We needed a game like this to boost our spirits heading into conference play.”Albeno scored both of her goals in the first half, as she extended her own school record to 29 career goals. Eckart and Vigil added second-half goals as Lamar improved to 4-0 all-time against the Lady Tigers.Lamar outshot Texas Southern (0-6) 20-7 for the game. Texas Southern goalkeeper Liliana Hernandez made five of her seven saves in the second half, as she did her best to keep the Lady Tigers in the game.“I thought we had a much better second half,” Cervantes said. “We scored early in the first half and seemed to get away from what worked. We stayed to the plan in the second half.”The Lady Cardinals host Northwestern State at 7 p.m. Friday in the Southland Conference opener for both squads.Tickets are available online at www.LamarCardinals.com.

A Philadelphia ordinance creates a healthy beverages tax credit available against the business income and receipts tax. Beginning in 2017, a “qualifying merchant” that provides healthy beverages for sale in its store will be eligible for a credit equal to the amount the “merchant cost” that year exceeds the “merchant cost” for the immediately preceding tax year, up to a maximum of $2,000. Unused tax credits can be carried forward.“Merchant cost” is the amount paid by the qualifying merchant to purchase healthy beverages for sale in the merchant’s store. A “healthy beverage” is a non-alcoholic beverage that does not list as an ingredient any form of caloric sugar-based sweetener, including, but not limited to, sucrose, glucose or high fructose corn syrup; or any form of artificial sugar substitute, including stevia, aspartame, sucralose, neotame, acesulfame potassium (Ace-K), saccharin, and advantame.Philadelphia Bill No. 160552, Philadelphia City Council, effective June 20, 2016
Hey everyone!We hosted a great webinar this morning to provide the basics on Intel vPro technology. It was a very interactive session and we had Josh in the audience who piped up with some good comments AND some good humor. 😀 We referred to quite a few helpful resources in the webinar, which I e-mailed to all of the registrants afterwards.

Intel's Xeon 7500/6500 processor series brings the biggest leap in performance in Xeon's history.This level of performance enables consolidation of a ton of older servers onto significantly fewer Xeon 7500/6500 generation platforms...saving a considerable amount of money.For example, IT managers can consolidate up to 20 older single-core 4-socket servers onto a single Xeon 7500 4-socket system representing a 4-socket to 4-socket consolidation ratio up to 20:1. The resulting savings from reduced power usage and OS licensing costs can show a payback of less than a year on the cost of the new server. That's a fantastic payback....and if application software costs and other savings are included the ROI is even greater.Similarly favorable 2-socket consolidation ratios are possible by moving workloads off of older 2-socket systems and onto Xeon 7500/6500 servers.A good example of this comes from Dell. Their engineering solutions teams recently published three technical white papers showing the benefits of consolidating database and virtualization workloads running on older 2-socket servers onto their new R810 server based on the Xeon 7500 processor series. The R810 is a pretty cool, innovative platform with Dell's FlexMem Bridge Technology that allows full access to the entire system memory whether the system is populated with just 2 or the full 4 sockets.The Dell engineers provide a lot of useful technical information. Check the white papers out yourself by following the link below.
