Gophers open up Big Ten slate with sweep

first_imgGophers open up Big Ten slate with sweepThe team improved to 27-4 this season with this weekend’s victories at Illinois. Matt GreensteinMarch 23, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintWith a sweep of Illinois over the weekend, Minnesota set a program record for most consecutive wins.Stretching back to the beginning of March, the Gophers have won their last 13 games.Much of their success has been due to the offensive outburst provided throughout the lineup. Two of the Gophers’ three victories against Illinois ended early due to Minnesota reaching the run rule.“You can’t count on scoring eight runs every game. We’re getting a lot of runs up and down the lineup right now,” head coach Jessica Allister said.Minnesota scored 28 total runs in the three-game series, including a 14-2 victory Friday.Senior Tyler Walker was one of a few hitters who led the offensive barrage.She ended the weekend 5-for-11 and helped give the Gophers pitchers added offensive support with six runs batted in.“We like to say we manufacture our runs. If somebody gets on with a walk or a hit, we want to be able to move them around and bring them in,” Walker said.Sophomore pitcher Sara Groenewegen started all three games, earning the victory in two.She also gave herself run support throughout the series, driving in six runs on five hits.Minnesota’s offense took pressure off its pitching. The Gophers pitchers gave up five runs during the weekend on just 13 hits.“[Run support] allows me to free things up. It’s always nice having that cushion. You’re able to throw the pitches you need to work on. It’s definitely a good thing,” Groenewegen said.Minnesota’s offensive dominance was present in its first two games, but it lacked the big bats in its third game.The Gophers ended with three hits in the 3-2 victory, and all of their runs came from the three errors Illinois committed.Minnesota has had troubles stranding runners this season.Despite prolific offense outburst, the Gophers left 18 runners on base throughout the weekend.“We did well with the long ball this week,” Walker said. “It’s honestly just hitting ground balls and being able to run and score from first.”During the winning streak, Minnesota’s offense has been rolling.In nine of their 13 victories during the span, the Gophers have tallied more than eight runs.“We talk about in games just slamming the door. By that, we mean as long as there’s an out left for the other team, that gives them hope to come back. We want to continue to slam the door on defense and keep putting runs up offensively,” Walker said.last_img read more

DEA Announces Additional Regulatory Steps To Address Opioid Epidemic

first_imgToday’s proposal amends the manner in which DEA grants quotas to manufacturers for maintaining inventories. These proposed levels align with current manufacturing standards aimed at promoting quality and efficiency, while also ensuring that the country has sufficient quantities of Schedule II substances necessary for the medical, scientific, research and industrial needs of patients nationwide. This proposed regulation would further limit excess quantities of medications that might be vulnerable to diversion for illicit distribution and use. The proposal published today in the Federal Register incorporates important and necessary changes to DEA’s quota regulations resulting from comprehensive legislation passed by Congress last year to address the nation’s deadliest drug epidemic in history, the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery Treatment for Patients and Communities Act, or SUPPORT Act. The SUPPORT Act requires that appropriate quota reductions be made after estimating potential for diversion. This estimate is based on rates of overdose deaths and abuse, the overall public health impact related to specific controlled substances and may include other factors as appropriate. The full text of the proposal may be found here. The public has 60 days to review and comment on this proposal, which DEA must then consider before drafting final regulations. DEA News:center_img The proposal also introduces several new types of quotas that DEA would grant to certain DEA-registered manufacturers. These use-specific quotas include quantities of controlled substances for use in commercial sales, product development, packaging/repackaging and labeling/relabeling, or replacement for quantities destroyed. These use-specific quotas will greatly improve the timeliness of DEA’s responses to applications filed by manufacturers while simultaneously improving DEA’s ability to respond quickly to drug shortages. WASHINGTON, D.C. ― The Drug Enforcement Administration announced proposed regulations to improve DEA’s ability to oversee the production of dangerous drugs at the height of the national opioid crisis. This regulation builds on important regulatory changes finalized in 2018 which gave a role to state attorneys general and certain federal partners – including the Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services – in setting the aggregate production quotas for Schedule I and II controlled substances. last_img read more

Photo of the Week: Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

first_imgPictured Rocks National Lakeshore along the southern shore of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Michigan. With 200-foot-high sandstone cliffs displaying red and brown iron, black manganese, green copper, and yellow and white colors from limestone, it’s a stunning sight to see. Add the brilliant fall colors from beech, maple, and birch trees as well as the deep evergreen from pines, and you have an amazing view you aren’t likely to forget.I’ve been fortunate to see the rocks not only from the water during a Pictured Rocks Cruise boat last month, but from the tops of the rocks when I hiked along the trails years ago.
