Family environment big for Ohio State mens hockey Canadian freshmen

Freshman goalkeeper Matt Tomkins (31) saves the puck during a game against Michigan State Jan. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. The teams tied, 1-1.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternThe biggest difference – the “lingo.”Ohio State men’s hockey freshman goalie Matt Tomkins said that was the most noticeable difference between his home country, Canada, and the United States.“Us Canadians get a kick out of some of the things we hear (in the U.S.), but I’m sure the local people say the same thing after having a conversation with us,” Tomkins said.OSU (11-6-1, 1-2-1) recruited two international freshmen to join the Buckeyes in the 2013-14 season along with five other players from within the U.S.“It’s pretty special being a part of the Buckeye family and (it) is something you know will be special before you get here, but you don’t really understand the magnitude of how special it is until you are actually a part of it,” Tomkins said. “Having the opportunity to play for one of the most respected sports programs in the country was extremely exciting and is still pretty surreal to this day.”Though exciting and surreal, the change from Canadian to American culture has brought on some challenges for the players.“Here in Ohio, all they play on TV is football and basketball, and the people can’t stop talking about those two sports either,” freshman defenseman and Alberta native Josh Healey said. “So (it’s) just two opposites really, but I don’t mind the change.“I come from a place where all they talk about it hockey, everyone plays hockey whether it be in an organized league or on the outdoor rink,” Healey said.Healey said aside from the sports cultural differences, America is very similar to Canada. However, both athletes have found comfort in their teammates to help make the adjustments easier.“A big part of making the transition easy was obviously coming in to an environment such as I did where I was part of a team and family right away, with many people ready to help me with anything we needed,” Tomkins said.Healey said he receives support both on and off the ice.“Whether it be advice from a senior or help getting set up in the dorms, someone has always been there,” he said.Aside from adjusting to the new environment and balancing school with hockey, Tomkins and Healey said they feel like any other college freshman adjusting to the new phase of college life.“I love Columbus so far.” Tomkins said. “I am especially excited to have a car next year and be able to explore the city and area even more.”Next up the team is scheduled to take part in the Hockey City Classic against Minnesota Friday at 9 p.m. in Minneapolis. read more

first_imgThe Randall-Reilly Publishing Company took top honors at the 60th Annual Jesse H. Neal Awards as its Overdrive, The Voice of the American Trucker, brand received the Grand Neal Award during the ABM ceremony held March 14 in New York City.Overdrive’s entry, “CSA’s Data Trail” beat out 612 other submissions including three other finalists—“Project: Blackbird” from MTG Media Group’s Plate magazine, IEEE Media’s IEEE Spectrum’s “The Age of Plenty” and “Videos by Crain’s New York Business” by Crain Communications’ Crain’s New York Business. “This is the kind of committed, analytical reporting where the line between b2b and public service disappears into great journalism,” said Stats.org editor Trevor Butterworth of the winning entry. Butterworth, who presented the award to close the ceremony, was also head judge of this year’s Neal Awards judging board. The other three nominees for Grand Neal still managed to pick up some hardware during the afternoon ceremony, especially Plate’s editor Chandra Ram who was named the 2014 McAllister Editorial Fellow. MTG Media Group picked up a trio of other awards including Best Profile for a Class A publisher for “Project: Blackbird” for which Ram contributed.Despite not nabbing the Grand Neal, parent companies IEEE Media and Crain Communications both picked up a total seven awards each at this year’s ceremony, dominating most categories.Other special awards were given to Robert Cassidy, editorial director of Building Design+Construction, who was the winner of the 46th Annual G.D. Grain, Jr. Award for distinguished editorial excellence and Michael Fabey, editorial editor of Aviation Week, who received the 2014 Timothy White Award for Editorial Integrity.Both Fabey and Cassidy were visibly moved by their achievements and thanked their family for their support throughout their careers, as well as jabbed a little at the industry heavy hitters who put profit over journalistic accountability.“Part of our job is to help our companies make money, but our role and responsibility is to make a difference,” Fabey told the audience.In honor of the 60th anniversary celebration, the Neal Awards singled out the winningest publication and author in its lengthy history. Marianne Dekker Mattera, managing editor of MedPage Today, was honored for her 18 Neal Awards wins writing in the healthcare field. She previously won the G.D. Crain, Jr. Award in 1997. Also, McGraw Hill Financial’s Architectural Record was given a special award for its record 28 wins, including a 2012 Grand Neal prize.Click here to view a full list of winners and finalists for the 2014 Neal Awards.last_img read more

RBI Sells Reed Construction Data RSMeans

first_imgReed Business Information has been relatively quiet since divesting or closing big chunks of its publishing business in the aftermath of the recession, but the company made more significant M&A moves this week.RBI announced it’s sold a 51 percent stake in Reed Construction Data to Warburg Pincus, a New York-based private equity firm. Additionally, RSMeans, a division of RCD, has been split off from its parent company and sold to The Gordian Group, a portfolio company of Warburg Pincus.Terms weren’t disclosed for either deal. “We are excited about partnering with the management teams and employees of RCD and RSMeans,” says Alex Berzofsky, managing director of Warburg Pincus, in a statement. “For RCD, customers will continue to benefit from RBI’s involvement and Warburg Pincus’ commitment to investing, innovating and growing the business. For RSMeans’ customers, the combination with The Gordian Group brings together the leading construction cost businesses in complementary markets that will enhance and create better products and tools for the end market.”The sales follow leadership changes for RCD over the past year. Iain Melville stepped down after 7 years as CEO last June, and was replaced by Graeme McCracken, formerly COO for RBI’s International businesses, in January. There’s no word on whether McCracken or other senior leadership will remain in their roles after the sale.The move also comes as RCD’s main competitor, the construction-data division of McGraw Hill, is up for sale.The divestitures of RCD and RSMeans are the latest for RBI—once the largest b2b publisher in the U.S.—after mass sell-offs and closings of its magazines and publishing businesses in 2008 and 2009. RBI has shrunk to just 6 percent of total revenue ($933 million) for parent company Reed Elsevier—almost $600 million less than what it generated 5 years ago.last_img read more
