29 January 2007The United Nations today marked the annual International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust with an urgent appeal that the remembrance of the millions of Jews and others murdered by the Nazis serve to prevent new massacres, a rebuff for those who deny that the tragedy ever occurred, and moving testimony from survivors. “The Holocaust was a unique and undeniable tragedy,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a video message played to a special memorial ceremony in the General Assembly Hall on the Holocaust in which 6 million Jews, 500,000 Roma and Sinti and other minorities, disabled and homosexuals were killed.“Decades later, the systematic murder of millions of Jews and others retains its power to shock. The ability of the Nazis to command a following, despite their utter depravity, still strikes fear. And above all, the pain remains: for aging survivors, and for all of us as a human family that witnessed a descent into barbarism.He emphasized the importance of remembrance in tribute to those who perished and in global efforts to stem the tide of human cruelty. “It keeps us vigilant for new outbreaks of anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance. And it is an essential response to those misguided individuals who claim that the Holocaust never happened, or has been exaggerated,” Mr. Ban declared. He said the presence at today’s ceremony of disabled persons and the Roma and Sinti community showed that, even now, the act of bearing witness can offer new perspectives, while the participation of young people highlighted the value of going beyond remembrance to ensure that new generations know this history.Mr. Ban noted that while the General Assembly was marking the event in New York he himself was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, at an African Union (AU) summit where one of the main items is ending the violence in Sudan’s wart-torn Darfur, where over 200,000 people have been killed and more than 2 million displaced by the conflict between the Sudanese Government, allied militias and rebels.General Assembly President Sheikha Haya Al Khalifa called for paying tribute to all victims – the needless deaths of millions of Jews and the suffering endured by the many minority groups that were also victims, some of whom were present in the Hall.“Today’s commemoration is an important reminder of the universal lessons of the Holocaust, a unique evil which cannot simply be consigned to the past and forgotten. The Holocaust was a historical event, which cannot be denied. Its consequences still reverberate in the present.” she told the ceremony.“It is a tragedy that the international community has not been able to stop new horrors in the years since the Holocaust. This makes it all the more important that we remember the lessons of the past so that we do not make the same mistakes in the future. We must remain vigilant. The forces of hatred, bigotry and racism are still at work in the world.”Thomas Schindlmayr, who works on disability issues for the UN but was speaking in his personal capacity, discussed the persecution of people with disabilities under Nazi Germany. “They were stripped of any legal protection and denied control over their own lives and bodies,” he said, recalling the forced sterilization of persons with disabilities and other abuses. While much had been learned since then, the notion that persons with disabilities are somehow inferior is still prevalent, he warned.The keynote speaker, Simone Veil, a member of the Constitutional Council of France and President of the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah, said that by creating this annual observance, the UN had remained faithful to its founding principles.“For those of us who were deported, not a day goes by that we do not think of the Shoah,” said Ms. Veil, who was a prisoner in Auschwitz, and was at Bergen-Belsen when that camp was liberated by the British Army. “What obsesses us the most is the memory of those from whom we were brutally separated when we arrived at the camps, and who we later learned were sent straight to the gas chambers,” she added, recalling how her own father and brother were taken away, never to be seen again.“We thought we had no more tears but we still wept, and I still weep today when I think of” those who were marched directly to the gas chambers, she said. “And I think of it every day, many times.”She said that while those who survived hoped and pledged “Never again,” their warnings were in vain. “After the massacres in Cambodia, it is Africa that is paying the highest price in genocidal terms,” she said, referring in particular to the events in Darfur, Sudan, and calling for UN action in response.Under Secretary-General Shashi Tharoor, who moderated the event, said it had two key purposes: “Of course, we meet to mourn that part of our human family that is missing – to remember the individuals and tell each other their stories. But we also meet to unearth the lessons we can draw from their lives and their fates.”He said the first among those lessons “is that, just as human beings have an almost infinite power to destroy, they also possess an enormous capacity to learn, to grow and to create.”At a news conference at UN Headquarters in New York, representatives of Roma and Sinti, who with 12 million members make up Europe’s largest minority, said they are subject to discrimination, social disadvantage and frequently also to open violence.“Especially in the countries of Eastern Europe, there are millions of members of our minority who live in ghetto-like housing, often cut off from any infrastructure,” Romani Rose Chairman of the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma said. “The infant mortality is extremely high, the degrading conditions that prevail there call the former apartheid system in South Africa to mind.“Excluded from education, marginalized in the labour market, people are deprived of any opportunity of participating in the development of society and of leading a self-determined life. Quite frequently Roma and Sinti are victims of pogroms, racially motivated murder and other of acts of violence. Often such attacks emanate from the State security forces themselves. Only rarely can the perpetrators expect consistent prosecution.”Ceremonies were held in other UN outposts around the world. “The sheer dimensions of the organized murder of Jews and others, the very scale of the systematic attempt at destroying an entire people, make the Holocaust a unique calamity that cannot – and should not – be forgotten, let alone denied,” the Director-General of the UN Office in Geneva told a ceremony at the Palais des Nations.“Sadly, other genocides and atrocities have followed the Holocaust, and the world has been unable, or unwilling, to prevent or stop them,” said Sergei Ordzhonikidze. “If we are to spare future generations from similar tragedies, we must carry forward the lessons of the Holocaust. We must not allow any of lessons of the Holocaust and of the Second World War to be distorted.”On Friday the General Assembly condemned without reservation any denial of the Holocaust, with only Iran publicly disassociating itself from the consensus resolution. read more

23 December 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has voiced grave concern over the escalating violence in Syria, including today’s explosions in the capital, Damascus, which resulted in more deaths and injuries, and reiterated his call for an immediate end to the bloodshed. “The Secretary-General urges the need for a credible, inclusive and legitimate Syrian-led process of comprehensive political change that will address the democratic aspirations of the Syrian people,” said a statement issued by his spokesperson.Mr. Ban said the Syrian Government “should fully and speedily implement the peace plan put forward by the League of Arab States.”He welcomed the arrival of the advance team of the Arab League, saying he looked forward to the deployment of the full-scale observer mission, which he stressed must be given unhindered access.The Security Council in a press statement strongly condemned the “terrorist attacks” and sent its condolences to the families of the victims and Syrian people.Members of the Council stressed that “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.”The Council reminded States that they must ensure that measures taken to combat terrorism comply with all their obligations under international law, in particular international human rights, refugee and humanitarian law.Media reports indicated that at least 40 people died and scores were injured in two car bomb blasts in Damascus.Syria has since March been in a maelstrom of an uprising which is part of a broader popular protest movement that has engulfed North Africa and the Middle East this year and led to the toppling of long-term regimes in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen.More than 5,000 people have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the unrest, according to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). read more

Sears Canada Inc. plans to close 59 locations across the country and cut approximately 2,900 jobs under a court-supervised restructuring.The struggling retailer said it will close 20 full-line locations, plus 15 Sears Home stores, 10 Sears Outlet stores and 14 Sears Hometown locations.List of Sears branded stores to close from official company release.— mike eppel (@eppman) June 22, 2017The announcement came after the company was granted temporary court protection from creditors under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) on Thursday morning.Under the plan, Sears Canada has been authorized by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to obtain up to $450 million in financing to maintain operations throughout the restructuring.The CCAA is a federal law that gives businesses a chance to operate under court supervision while working out a plan with bond holders, landlords, suppliers and other creditors.“The brand reinvention work Sears Canada has begun requires a long-term effort,” Sears Canada said in a statement.“But the continued liquidity pressures facing the company as well as legacy components of its business are preventing it from making further progress and from restructuring its legacy assets and businesses outside of a CCAA proceeding.”Sears Canada said it hopes to exit court protection as soon as possible in 2017.The struggling retailer has piled up losses over several years and seen its stock dive, losing more than 80 per cent of its value in the last year, despite efforts to reinvent itself at a time.The company, which was founded as a mail-order business in 1952, has also gone through several leadership changes in recent years.Headquartered in Toronto, Sears Canada had 94 department stores, 23 Sears Home stores and 10 outlets prior to the CCAA restructuring. by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 22, 2017 6:38 am MDT Last Updated Jun 22, 2017 at 10:36 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Sears Canada seeking court protection from creditors A Sears Canada outlet is seen Tuesday, June 13, 2017 in Saint-Eustache, Que..

In future, a similar approach could be used to identify at-risk patients at birth, say the researchers.Cardiologist Dr Ami Khera, a member of the team from Massachusetts General Hospital in the US, said: “These individuals, who are at several times the normal risk for having a heart attack just because of the additive effects of many variations, are mostly flying under the radar.”If they came into my clinical practice, I wouldn’t be able to pick them out as high risk with our standard metrics.”A computer was programmed to scour more than six million locations in the complete human genetic code, or genome, of each patient – identifying many at risk with no typical symptoms.Lead scientist Dr Sekar Kathiresan, from the Broad Institute that brings together experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, said: “For heart attack, I foresee that each patient will have the opportunity to know his or her polygenic risk number in the near future, similar to the way they can know their cholesterol number right now.”The research is reported in the journal Nature Genetics. Over five million Britons are three times more likely than their peers to have a heart attack, a ground-breaking study has found – as scientists said their discovery could lead to nationwide screening to save their lives.American scientists identified genetic variants in the DNA of patients that increase the risk of five common disorders using information from the UK Biobank database. The unique collection of DNA samples and medical information is provided by more than 400,000 donors. The results enabled them to produce “risk scores” – showing how likely they were to develop one of the diseases.The conditions studied were coronary artery disease, the abnormal heart rhythm disorder atrial fibrillation, Type 2 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, and breast cancer. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––Some eight per cent were found to be more than three times as likely to develop coronary artery disease as everyone else based on their genetic variants – despite not always showing obvious warning symptoms such as high blood pressure or cholesterol.

I have not… I gave her, I made a mistake. But I haven’t taken any money,” Sasha Ruseva, 35, told private television station TV7 in her first public appearance since DNA tests proved on Friday that she was Maria’s biological mother.“I want Maria back! I am her mother, how could I not want her. I do not care what they say. I want Maria back with me,” she said through tears.The four-year-old girl, with her blonde hair and green eyes, was wrongfully thought to be a Western European child abducted by a Roma couple she was found living with the family near the Greek town of Farsala.InvestigatingGreek and Bulgarian police however tracked down her real parents to a Roma ghetto in the central Bulgarian town of Nikolaevo on Thursday and are now investigating the mother for allegedly selling the child in Greece in 2009.Maria is currently in the care of Smile of the Child, an Athens-based charity.“I gave birth to her in Lamia (in Greece). I raised her until she was seven months old. Then I had to return to Bulgaria to take care of my other children when my eldest daughter, who was caring for them, got married,” Ruseva said today.She said she could not bring the baby back with her as she did not have any documents. She said:A young woman came to me and said: ‘I do not have children. Give her to me. I’ll take care of her just as you would. Come back to Greece to take her when you can’.But I gave birth to two more children here and I could not go back. I did not have the money.last_img read more

first_imgTHE TRANSPORT MINISTER has said the 16-year-old fee to have a car de-clamped won’t change any time soon.Minister Varadkar also denied suggestions that it is simply a revenue-generation exercise.Responding to questions from Independent Wexford TD Mick Wallace, he said that there are “no proposals to increase the current fee” of €80, which has remained unchanged since 1998.“Incentivise compliance”The Minister said this indicates that “that clamping is being used to incentivise compliance with parking regulations, rather than as a revenue generating exercise”.“Prior to the introduction of clamping in Dublin,” he said, “the problems associated with illegal parking were endemic, causing difficulties for residents and traders alike who could not access parking during business hours, as metered spaces were often occupied by all-day commuters.”Contrasting Dublin before the introduction of clamping with today, it is evident that the use of clamping as an instrument of public parking policy has been highly effective.However, the Irish Times reported in recent weeks that Dublin City Council had set Dublin Street Parking Services a target of 60,000 car clampings a year, leading to clampers to ballot for industrial action.SIPTU said its members are seeking a 2.5 per cent pay increase which they say has been due since 2011.Read: Dublin clampers vote in favour of industrial action over pay dispute >Whoops: Clampers get clamped in Dublin >last_img read more

first_imgUn astéroïde pourrait heurter la Terre en 2182Monde – Selon une équipe de chercheurs espagnols, italiens et américains, l’astéroïde 1999 RQ36, découvert il y a onze ans, pourrait heurter la Terre en 2182. Cet astéroïde de 560 mètres de diamètre environ, pourrait causer des dommages importants en cas de collision avec la planète bleue.Les probabilités de collision sont très faibles, mais elles existent, comme l’explique Maria Eugenia Sansaturio, coauteure de l’étude. “La probabilité de l’impact peut-être estimée à environ 0,00092 soit un pour mille, mais ce qui est plus surprenant, c’est que plus de la moitié de cette chance (0,00054) correspond à 2182” souligne-t-elle.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESASi l’orbite de cet astéroïde est bien déterminée grâce aux observations visuelles et mesures radar, les chercheurs évoquent une importante “incertitude orbitale” due à l’effet Yarkovsky, un phénomène se manifestant par une force de radiation thermique qui modifie légèrement l’orbite des petits objets du système solaire.Une collision entre 1999 RQ36 et la Terre ne pourrait pas entraîner une nouvelle extinction de masse, mais pourrait causer d’importants dégâts, comme un tsunami si l’objet venait à tomber dans l’océan, ou la destruction d’une grande ville de la taille de Paris.Le 29 juillet 2010 à 14:34 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgDes médicaments à risque pour les seniorsSelon une récente étude anglo-américaine, la mortalité des personnes âgées augmenterait en cas de consommation prolongée et importante de certains médicaments. Les recherches ont été menées durant deux ans sur 13.000 sujets âgés de plus de 65 ans.C’est une découverte inquiétante que révèle aujourd’hui le journal Le Figaro. Publiés dans le Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, une étude conduite sur deux ans indique que 20% des personnes âgées ayant consommé plusieurs médicaments à effet anticholinergique sont décédées durant la période d’observation, contre seulement 7% des patients qui ne prenaient aucun médicament.À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?Les agents anticholinergiques sont des substances qui agissent au niveau du système nerveux en réduisant les effets de l’acétylcholine, un neurotransmetteur impliqué dans la mémoire, l’activité musculaire ou encore les fonctions végétatives. Une consommation régulière et prolongée, voire simultanée de ces médicaments entrainerait alors un déclin cognitif incluant des troubles de l’équilibre, de la vision, de la mémoire, une faiblesse musculaire ou encore un discours incohérent. Selon l’étude, les molécules anticholinergiques favoriseraient ainsi le taux de chutes des personnes âgées, entrainant une progression de la mortalité. Aujourd’hui, le Figaro a publié une liste des médicaments en question. En tout, on en dénombre pas moins de 70 identifiés comme étant à l’origine d’altération des facultés cognitives chez les seniors. Parmi eux, se trouvent des antidépresseurs (Elavil, Laroxyl, Tofranil), des tranquillisants (Largactil, Terfluzine), des antitussifs (Broncalene, Broncorinol), des antihypertenseurs (Atenolol), des diurétiques (Aldalix, Furosemide), des antiasthmatiques (Asmabec, Beclojet), des antiépileptiques (Tegretol) mais aussi des molécules prescrites dans le traitement du glaucome (Azarga, Combigan, Cosopt) ou pour les incontinences urinaires (Ditropan, Oxybutynine).Une remise en question “À chaque fois que cela est possible, il faut prescrire un autre médicament”, explique au Figaro le professeur Jean-Louis Montastruc, chef du service de pharmacologie du CHU de Toulouse. Mais cela reste complexe : “En gériatrie, nous connaissons tous ces produits. Le problème, c’est que si certains sont très clairement identifiés comme ayant un effet anticholinergique (comme les antidépresseurs de première génération, ou d’autres produits régulièrement prescrits en urologie pour incontinence), d’autres avancent un peu plus masqués”, assure le docteur Olivier de Ladoucette, psychiatre et gériatre à la Pitié-Salpêtrière, à Paris. Le réexamen de la dangerosité d’une centaine de molécules est donc en cours auprès de l’Agence du médicament et devrait s’achever à la fin de cette année.Le 6 juillet 2011 à 17:08 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_img July 31, 2019 — New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have been published by an international multidisciplinary working group1. In addition, data from the Dosisphere phase II dosimetry trial supports MAA single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT-based prospective personalized dosimetry2.Prof. Etienne Garin, nuclear medicine physician, Cancer Centre Eugène Marquis, Rennes, France, received the gold medal at the Global Embolization Oncology Symposium Technologies (GEST) 2019 meeting for his work on the Investigator Initiated Study (IIS) Dosisphere. This study compared the efficacy of TheraSphere in 56 patients with at least one lesion > 7cm, using a personalized approach with Simplicit90Y dosimetry software versus standard dosimetry.  Higher response rates of 71 percent were seen in the personalized prospective dosimetry arm versus 36 percent with standard dosimetry. “The future for radioembolization is personalised dosimetry,” said Garin, principal investigator of the study.”The working group reached a consensus recommendation on simple, reproducible and evidence-based practice for personalized treatment of HCC patients with TheraSphere. This publication significantly advances our knowledge of dosimetry and will help to improve clinical outcomes” said Prof. Riad Salem, chief of interventional radiology, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago. The paper1 combines conclusions from the peer-reviewed literature together with expert opinion and includes curative and palliative therapy, categorized into four clinical scenarios: radiation segmentectomy, lobectomy, multifocal unilobar or bilobar disease, and HCC with macrovascular invasion. For each scenario, recommendations are provided on patient selection, treatment planning and dosimetry, treatment delivery and outcome assessment, and degree of recommendation and the strength of consensus.Watch the VIDEO: Y90 Embolization of Liver Cancer at Henry Ford HospitalFor more information: www.therasphere.comReferences1.  Salem R, Padia S, Lam M et al.

first_imgMSC Splendida homeports in HamburgMSC Cruises, the world’s largest privately-owned cruise line, today celebrated the maiden call in Hamburg of MSC Splendida – the most spacious cruise ship with the richest choice of amenities ever to call at Germany’s top cruise port.An indication of MSC Cruises’ increasing investment in the German market, and in Hamburg in particular, MSC Splendida is the first “Fantasia” class ship – the line’s largest and newest class of ships – to be based at the northern German port for a season.MSC Splendida will homeport in Hamburg for the summer season, making 13 sailings around northern Europe, encompassing the British Isles, the Norwegian fjords and Iceland.In addition to featuring the MSC Yacht Club – MSC’s exclusive ship within a ship luxury offering – MSC Splendida offers the most comprehensive range of dining, entertainment and relaxation experiences of any cruise ship ever to serve the German market. Her amenities include 20 bars, six restaurants, five swimming pools – including a large aqua park, 4D cinema, F1 simulator and a variety of wellness, sports, and family options. With 1,637-staterooms, the ship is 137,936 GRT, 1092 feet-long, and 125 feet-wide.MSC Splendida’s arrival in Hamburg was marked by a ceremonial crest exchange between the ship’s Captain, Giuseppe Maresca, and the Harbourmaster of Hamburg, Jörg Pollman, with MSC Cruises Executive Chairman, Pierfrancesco Vago, Hamburg Senator, Frank Horch, and a large international media contingent in attendance.Addressing the event, MSC Cruises Executive Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago said: “Home-porting MSC Splendida – one of our largest and finest ships – here is a natural progression for us, following four years of increasing investment in Hamburg.”He added: “MSC Cruises has already brought around 350,000 vacationers through Hamburg. And this summer MSC Splendida will make 13 sailings – adding more than 100,000 to that total. Our decision to bring MSC Splendida here is rooted in a concrete commitment to this world-class destination.”That commitment began in 2010 when the Company christened MSC Magnifica in Hamburg, dubbed Germany’s “Gateway to the World.” In addition to deploying MSC Splendida from Hamburg, MSC Cruises will this month base MSC Orchestra in Kiel and MSC Sinfonia in Warnemünde, enabling thousands of German and international travellers to discover the Baltic capitals and the rugged coastlines, islands and fjords of Norway. Additionally, MSC Orchestra and MSC Sinfonia will also offer northern European “Grand Tours,” where two back-to-back cruises combine to create one unforgettable 14-night voyage.Source = MSC Cruiseslast_img read more

first_imgThe dogs were kept at the kennels for two weeks for observation and treatment. Once they were in a stable condition, they were put up for adoption. Their saving grace appeared in the form of loving homes for each of them. Antony Porrill and his brother decided to adopt the two Great Danes.‘Ember’ is one of them and has now adapted happily to her new home.Antony and his wife Mazz were at the annual Dog-A-Thon with their small pack of dogs. They also have a pedigree Great Dane and a Jack Russell that have taken to Ember very well. Mazz says that “Ember sleeps on the floor right next to Antony every night. She knows he will look after her and sees him as her pack leader.”While at the Dog-A-Thon, Ember was spotted by members of the AACL, but was hardly recognisable as the sad, skinny dog when they first saw her. “She is so shiny and happy now! I’m so glad she is no longer just a sack of bones and that she has a family who love her,” said Annamarie Koen of the AACL.In fact, members of the league were so pleased with the progress Ember has made at her new home that she was awarded the title of ‘Best Rescue Dog’ and got a hamper of prizes to take home. In November last year, the Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL) removed two Great Danes that were found in a terrible condition.The AACL received a tip-off from a resident and on inspection, found two black female Great Danes starving and left without water. When they first arrived, the dogs were terrified and weak, and near death due to starvation. As soon as food was placed in front of them, they wolfed it down. Their ribs were sticking out and their coats were dull and full of fleas and ticks. The dogs’ owners had received warnings in the past, and failure to care for their pets resulted in the Great Danes being removed from the property.

first_imgFox SportsHistory, they say, has a way of repeating itself. Thirty-one FBS programs changed head coaches after the 2012 season and, with 10 openings by Nov. 1, it seems we could be well on our way to matching that number this year. And if we look to the past as our guide, it’s likely many of those same schools we saw change coaches in 2012-13 could appear again in 2015-16.The hiring class of 2013 is now knee deep into their third collective seasons, nearing the 35 game mark. As such, we’ll take the temperature of each coaching tenure at this point in time with an eye toward the future.ACCSteve Addazio, Boston College (17-18, 8-14 ACC): The dude rode running back Andre Williams (2013) and quarterback Tyler Murphy (2014) to a pair of 7-6 seasons, ranking in the top 20 nationally in rushing both years. Both are now gone and the Eagles have plummeted to 74th. As such, BC is 3-6 despite possessing the nation’s fourth-ranked scoring defense. Like many private school coaches, Addazio will play to a system, and the results will vary depending on the depth and experience of players within that system.Dave Doeren, N.C. State (16-17, 4-16 ACC): The progress looks good on paper – 3-9 in 2013, 8-5 a year ago and 5-3 this season with Boston College and Syracuse ahead. But here is the complete list of teams the Wolfpack has beaten under Doeren: Louisiana Tech, Richmond, Central Michigan, Georgia Southern, Old Dominion, South Florida, Presbyterian, Syracuse, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Central Florida, Troy, Eastern Kentucky, Old Dominion, South Alabama, and Wake Forest again. That’s a lot of cotton candy not much meat and potatoes. Scott Shafer, Syracuse (13-20, 6-14 ACC): Shafer went 7-6 and beat Minnesota in the Texas Bowl in his first year as Doug Marrone’s replacement, and has won six times (twice in the ACC) since. This year’s Cuse team ranks 64th in scoring and 85th in scoring defense.Big 12Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech (17-17, 8-16 Big 12): Coaching hires often operate on a pendulum, where the new guy has to be everything the last guy wasn’t. And after Tommy Tuberville ended his awkward three-year run by bolting for Cincinnati, Kirby Hocutt went out and found the anti-Tubs: a coach who was hip, modern and, most of all, understood Texas Tech and wanted to be there. Ideally, Kingsbury would bear the torch of Mike Leach’s Air Raid legacy and mold it for the modern times. Problem is, the entire Big 12 can do what Tech does, and Tech doesn’t do what everyone else does. Turnovers have continued to haunt the Red Raiders as they attempt to climb back to the top of the Big 12.Big TenDarrell Hazell, Purdue (6-26, 2-18 Big Ten): The previous numbers speak for themselves. If Purdue moves on from Hazell after this season, his hiring should serve as a case study for coaching changes in the future. After AD Morgan Burke fired Danny Hope after a 6-6 season, he chose Hazell out of Kent State, seemingly the latest product from the MAC Coaching Assembly Line. But Hazell, a long-time Jim Tressel lieutenant at Ohio State, spent just two seasons leading his own program, and the first one ended 5-7. So, essentially, Burke hired Hazell on one good season, a season in which he didn’t recruit the bulk of the roster and he happened to finish fourth nationally in turnover margin.Pac-12Sonny Dykes, California (11-21, 5-18 Pac-12): There was the 1-11 tear-down year, then the 5-7 rebuild year. Now, after a 5-0 start, Cal sits at 5-3 with a likely bowl berth waiting, as long as the Bears can beat Oregon State at home in a couple weeks. The defense has steadily improved – 75th in yards per play allowed after finishing in the 100’s in 2013-14, and the offense is up from 98th in 2013 to 30th in 2015. But will that continue if and when Jared Goff takes the NFL’s money this spring?Mark Helfrich, Oregon (29-7, 18-5 Pac-12): Helfrich’s record is head-and-shoulders above his Power Five peers, and yet he’s the most scrutinized guy on this list. In taking over for Chip Kelly, Helfrich shared a Pac-12 North title in 2013 and reached the national title game in 2014. There’s been the growing pains you’d expect from a first-time head coach (not going outside the program for Nick Alliotti’s replacement is the criticism most heard of Helfrich’s decision making to date) and the dip you’d expect after a generational talent leaves the program. Helfrich has been a steadying hand at a program that values continuity and, while he has yet to lead them to that elusive national title, should keep the Ducks in Pac-12 contention in perpetuity. Is that enough for college football’s preeminent new money program?Mike MacIntyre (10-23, 2-21 Pac-12): There’s no question the program is in better shape now than when MacIntyre arrived. None whatsoever. But there are difficulties to the Colorado job that are never going away. First, the schedule. The Buffs are 4-5, fresh off a close loss at No. 24 UCLA, and still have No. 9 Stanford, surging USC, a trip to improved Washington State and a trip to No. 13 Utah ahead. On top of that, being the Colorado coach requires you to play that schedule while convincing southern California kids to leave southern California and play for you. Can Colorado accept its lot in the Pac-12 South? Can MacIntyre?SECBret Bielema, Arkansas (14-19, 4-16 SEC): After closing last season in borderline erotic fashion, Arkansas couldn’t carry its SEC West sleeper status out of September. Bielema’s bravado is entertaining for sportswriters, and leave his fan base feeling hung out to dry when his bite doesn’t match his bark.Butch Jones, Tennessee (16-17, 7-14 SEC): Jones has righted a lot of Derek Dooley’s wrongs, but this season – particularly early losses to Oklahoma and Florida – has written him a reputation as an aggressive and visionary brand-builder in the offseason, and something decidedly opposite of that on game day. The Vols built a lot of hype to close last season and, with a yellow-brick road in front of him to a possible 9-4 finish to this season, we’ll probably spend this off-season playing the same song on repeat. His team will no longer be young in 2016. Florida is charging hard; 2016 needs to be the time Butch cashes in some of that off-season equity and turn it into demonstrable results.Gus Malzahn, Auburn (24-11, 12-9 SEC): Malzahn’s tenure can be split evenly into two parts, bisected by Laquon Treadwell’s broken leg. After Auburn beat then-No. 3 Ole Miss last season, Malzahn was 19-3 with an SEC championship, a national title berth and another top 10 ranking. Since then he’s 5-8 with wins over a pair of FCS programs, San Jose State, Kentucky and Louisville. So, which is it? Is he coaching’s next superstar and Nick Saban’s Antidote, or is he Gene Chizik in a vest? The truth, as always, is probably somewhere in the middle.Mark Stoops, Kentucky (11-21, 4-18 SEC): This story has already been written so many other times in so many other conferences. Determined to get out of the cellar, Kentucky hires what it believes to be the next best thing and plunges everything it has into being a winner. And, nearly three years later, the team is undeniably better, but its record is not.AmericanMatt Rhule, Temple (15-17, 9-11 AAC): Al Golden and Steve Addazio won some games at Temple. But none had College GameDay and a primetime ABC audience on campus to see the undefeated Owls battle No. 9 Notre Dame. The defense has been great, and the offense is getting there. And best of all, Rhule seems to get Temple and enjoy being there.Willie Taggart, South Florida (10-22, 7-13 AAC): Everything that has happened at Temple over the past three years is what I thought Taggart would bring to South Florida. What seemed like a perfect marriage of coach and program has the two in counseling two-and-a-half seasons later. The Bulls are 4-4 and close at UCF, meaning they’ll need to upset East Carolina, Temple or Cincinnati to reach Taggart’s first bowl game.Tommy Tuberville, Cincinnati (23-11, 15-5 AAC): Tuberville has hired well and a winning program has remained a winning program. Tuberville’s tenure at Cincinnati reminds me of the Underwood marriage in House of Cards, a strategic alliance that has served both well.Conference USASkip Holtz, Louisiana Tech (19-16, 14-7 C-USA): Holtz won Conference USA West last season and is barreling toward another one, provided he can beat Southern Miss in the finale.Sean Kugler, UTEP (12-21, 7-13 C-USA): Kugler is an alum that left an NFL position coaching job to lead this alma mater’s program. He appeared in a bowl game last year. Those two sentences should assuage any concerns during a 3-5 start to this season.Brad Lambert, Charlotte (12-18, 0-5 C-USA): The upstart 49ers are still getting their sea legs in their first Conference USA season. Let’s check back in a couple years.Todd Monken, Southern Miss (10-23, 6-15 C-USA): Did you catch that part about Southern Miss above? Yeah, after winning one game over two seasons and four games over a three-season stretch, Monken has Southern Miss at 6-3 this year and 4-1 in C-USA play. Beat Rice and Old Dominion and the Eagles are in a winner-take-all game for the C-USA West Division at Louisiana Tech on Nov. 28.Ron Turner, Florida International (9-24, 6-15 C-USA): The Panthers are 4-5 this year after a 4-8 finish to 2014, and have Charlotte on Saturday. Which means FIU could win five games without beating an FBS team that won more than four games this year.MACRod Carey, Northern Illinois (28-9, 18-2 MAC): All Carey’s done is win two MAC West titles and one MAC championship, heading into a huge game at Toledo on Tuesday. Did you expect anything less when he was promoted to replace Doeren?P.J. Fleck, Western Michigan (14-19, 11-9 MAC): The Class of 2013’s star pupil, Fleck has Western Michigan in contention for a MAC championship just two seasons after a 1-11 teardown year. A closing stretch of Bowling Green, Northern Illinois and Toledo (the final two on the road) will provide a fantastic picture to how much substance Fleck has to match his style.Paul Haynes, Kent State (9-22, 6-13 MAC): Playing in the MAC’s easier division, the Flashes could quite possibly finish 7-5 this season, representing a massive jump from the six total wins over Haynes’ first two seasons. But, after winning the MAC East in 2012, Kent State is still well behind Bowling Green for divisional supremacy.Mountain WestRon Caragher, San Jose State (13-19, 10-11 MW): Caragher left a winning situation at San Diego and walked into a tough situation in San Jose. The Spartans are 4-4 this year with BYU and Boise State waiting, mean they’ll likely need to sweep Nevada and Hawaii to finish .500.Brian Polian, Nevada (15-18, 9-11 MW): A former assistant of George O’Leary, Charlie Weis, Jim Harbaugh and Kevin Sumlin, Polian picked Nevada as his first job, and is still working through some of the kinks.Matt Wells, Utah State (24-12, 17-4 MW): Wells has successfully carried the torch passed to him from Gary Andersen and, some would argue, improved upon his predecessor’s work. The Aggies, once a dead end program in the middle of nowhere, are in the driver’s seat to play for the Mountain West title this season, one year after winning 10 games with four different quarterbacks.Sun BeltDoug Martin, New Mexico State (5-27, 2-10 Sun Belt): In January, the NCAA is set to approve new rules allowing conferences to hold a championship game with less than 12 teams. Which means the Sun Belt could vote geographic outliers Idaho and New Mexico State out of its membership if it so chooses, and commissioner Karl Benson has alluded his league may do just that. As if the record above wasn’t dire enough, there you go.Trent Miles, Georgia State (3-28, 1-17 Sun Belt): Georgia State doesn’t have the geographic excuse New Mexico State does, and Appalachian State and Georgia Southern have removed any FCS-to-FBS excuse the Panthers could possibly use. Simply put, there’s no reason an FBS program located in downtown Atlanta should win only one in 18 conference games.Paul Petrino, Idaho (5-26, 3-10 Sun Belt): Everything written about Martin and New Mexico State applies here.Scott Satterfield, Appalachian State (18-14, 14-6 Sun Belt): The Mountaineers (and, to be fair, rival Georgia Southern) have shown the proper placement for cart and horse, that a winning culture must first be built before moving to FBS. Satterfield is 10-2 in Sun Belt play and four wins shy of a conference title in Appalachian State’s first season of eligibility for the crown.
