Safety issue cancels game

first_imgFor the second consecutive match, the Wisconsin women’s soccer team faced a long delay before Tuesday’s scheduled matchup with Northern Iowa. However, rather than waiting out inclement weather conditions, the Badgers were delayed Tuesday due to security issues.Ultimately, Tuesday’s match was canceled as UW and Madison police continued to search for a potentially dangerous young man who was believed to be armed. “It is obviously very disappointing to not be able to play the match against Northern Iowa,” head coach Paula Wilkins said. “However, safety is the most important issue here, and nobody’s life [should be risked] for a soccer game.”As a result of the cancellation, Wisconsin will not get a chance to avenge its first home loss of the season until after the team hits the road this weekend to face Purdue and Indiana.”We have been working on a bunch of things to prepare after the UW-Milwaukee game, and we thought it was going to be a great preparation leading into the Big Ten,” Wilkins said. “[We will] focus on Wednesday practice to prepare for Purdue and keep focusing on the things that we were going to address in the match against Northern Iowa.”As of Tuesday night, no plans were made for the match to be rescheduled. Friday evening Wisconsin will return to action in West Lafayette, Ind., and square off against Big Ten rival Purdue.last_img read more


Former student creates sneaker business

first_img“I plan to go back to USC,” Hayman said.  “I really would love to graduate.” “My experiences at Cookies N’ Kicks have always been amazing,” said Hrak Araradian, a sneaker reseller who runs 213 Solez. “I’ve bought and sold sneakers with them in the past, and Eli is genuinely super kind.” “Eli is the most persistent person I’ve ever met,” said Dominiq Sotelo, co-owner of Cookies N’ Kicks. “If he wants something, he goes out and gets it.” Hayman, who moved from Australia, has been living in Los Angeles for 16 years. While living in the city, he has become increasingly familiar with sneaker culture and the community of sneakerheads, who buy and trade shoes. He said he buys what genuinely catches his eye, rather than buying certain sneakers to follow trends. “When this place came up, I approached my good friend at the time and my business partner,” Hayman said.  “I told him that I really thought this place would be killer for a sneaker store. It had a really nice look about it.” Customers walking into Cookies N’ Kicks, located on the iconic Melrose Avenue, are greeted with a friendly and laid-back ambience. The shoe store, complete with music blasting and the sounds of basketballs bouncing, has attracted celebrity customers like Lil Yachty, Offset, and Lamar Odom. This L.A. staple was created by Eli Hayman, a student who took a leave of absence. Before his start as a business owner, Hayman was a sneaker seller, making a profit on social media and other online selling platforms. Hayman was inspired by the sneaker industry and the opportunity for profit that came with selling sneakers. While he plans to go into the field of real estate, Hayman said Cookies N’ Kicks fit into his current ambitions.  Even though Melrose Avenue is heavily populated with sneaker stores, Hayman felt they were lacking in customer service. Part of his motivation for starting Cookies N’ Kicks was to create a friendlier environment focused on making the sneaker-buying experience more enjoyable for the customer.  He is currently working with different influencers and designing merchandisers to promote the brand, as well as creating a cleaning product for the store with his experience from his first business.   Former USC student Eli Hayman left school last year in order to pursue his sneaker business Cookies N’ Kicks, which has its storefront on Melrose Avenue. The store has attracted celebrity customers like Lamar Odam and Offset. (Colette Kanbarian | Daily Trojan) Hayman created his first business called Wype the Hype, a sneaker cleaning service previously on Melrose Avenue, while at USC. Hayman said he rarely slept while balancing work and school — he would arrive at the storefront at 9 a.m. and leave around 5 a.m. After the success of Wype the Hype, he left school and launched Cookies N’ Kicks in 2019. center_img His favorite class was Shaping Cities Through Real Estate, where he formed a close relationship with adjunct faculty Bret Nielsen. He would often look to Professor Nielsen for business and real estate advice, asking him about starting leases, and contracts. Hayman works with different business partners involved with the store. He focuses on financial side of things, such as keeping track of payments and taxes, while each business partner has their own role in maintaining and growing the business.  “Essentially what we do is, if you buy kicks, we give you cookies,” said Hayman, a former real estate development major. Last year, the 21-year-old decided to take a break from attending USC in order to pursue his business.  “I’m coming up with new and creative things that ultimately build the brand and make it worth more,” Hayman said.  “I don’t really do it for the money right now,” Hayman said.  “That’s not what’s important to me. The point is that we’re meeting every day, we’re meeting the coolest people and having the coolest opportunities.” The store features a basketball hoop, upstairs lounge area and an importance placed on providing a positive attitude. Currently, Cookies N’ Kicks has over 37,000 followers on Instagram. Even though Hayman said being a full-time student does not fit into his current lifestyle, Hayman wants to return in a few years and eventually get his degree. He said that his real estate classes were the most helpful part of his time at USC.  “I have the most random Converse collection of like 80 pairs of Converse,” Hayman said.  “If I like it, I’ll buy it.” But Hayman said that he is just getting started. He hopes to use Cookies N’ Kicks as a launching pad for the rest of his career, making important connections and learning through experience.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — With one deadline looming on his future in Cleveland, LeBron James has been in contact with the Cavaliers through his representatives.Following the NBA draft on Thursday night, Cavs general manager Koby Altman said he has had positive discussions with the three-time champion’s group.

And then Collin, we got to get there with experience as well. But like he (James) says, experience is the best teacher, and we gave those guys a great experience over 30 games and into the playoffs and into the Finals, and what does that mean for us moving forward, I think it’s all really positive.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding View comments The Cavs can offer him a five-year, $209 million deal this time. It’s possible James could choose to sign a one-year deal again with a player option and go through the free-agency dance again next summer.To look more appealing to James, the Cavs need to upgrade their roster and they took a significant step by selecting Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the No. 8 overall pick. Sexton averaged 19.2 points as a freshman and he addresses the club’s biggest need — a playmaker to fill the void left when the Cavs traded All-Star Kyrie Irving last summer.Altman hopes Sexton’s arrival will make the Cavs more attractive to James.The 19-year-old lacks professional experience, but Altman pointed out that James dealt with that issue this season.“He went through it this year a little bit with some of our young guys, especially in the playoffs,” Altman said. “What’s amazing, he talks about this all the time — the best teacher is experience. And our young guys got some really good experience this year. And while it wasn’t consistent throughout the playoffs, each guy had their moments. And we went through two Game 7s and got to a Finals, and that experience is a huge teacher for those guys.ADVERTISEMENT “We continue to have good dialogue with his management team,” Altman said. “I think LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does. He’s done that before, so this is nothing new for us. We want to respect his space during this process and I continue to have really good dialogue with his management team as he goes through that process.“That’s probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don’t take him for granted. We love him, this city loves him. He means the world to us and this franchise.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownJames led the Cavs to their fourth straight NBA Finals this season, carrying a team that endured injuries and a roster overhaul at the trading deadline.
