CopyrightX returns for a second run in January

first_imgCopyrightX — AKA ‘The MOOC the New Yorker actually liked‘ — is tooling up for a second run, expanding on its unusual, hybrid format.The twelve-week networked course, offered each spring under the auspices of Harvard Law School, the HarvardX  initiative, and the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, explores the current law of copyright and the ongoing debates concerning how that law should be reformed.

Applications for admission will be accepted starting December 13, 2013.  For details concerning the application and admission processes, see CopyrightX:Admission.The lectures, reading materials, maps, and recordings that have been developed for CopyrightX are also available for use by teachers and students in other settings.

Syracuse overcomes barrage of 3s to fight back against No. 21 Cincinnati

first_img Related Stories ROARING BACK: Syracuse defies odds again in late comeback win over No. 21 Cincinnati Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse’s defense kept breaking down. Cincinnati kept knocking down 3-pointers. It happened all game long. Syracuse continued to leave the Bearcats’ shooters open on the wings or in the corners.Behind the fluid stroke of Sean Kilpatrick, No. 21 Cincinnati (16-4, 4-3 Big East) hit 10 3-pointers in its 57-55 loss to the No. 3 Orange (18-1, 6-0) in the Carrier Dome Monday. Kilpatrick hit six of them, the beneficiary of broken defensive plays by some of Syracuse’s freshmen. Throughout the second half especially, Cincinnati sent daggers through the Orange’s attempts to climb back or pull away.After the game, SU head coach Jim Boeheim said two of his freshmen, Trevor Cooney and Jerami Grant, left Kilpatrick open twice. That translated to 12 points for Kilpatrick, the first three coming 39 seconds into the game when he hit a triple from the left wing to give the Bearcats an early lead.“Freshmen are going to make mistakes, that’s why they don’t play here. (Cooney) left Kilpatrick twice, and Jerami left him twice. Two freshmen, 12 points,” Boeheim said. “We can’t afford that. They didn’t make the right read in the defensive situation. You can’t leave a guy like that open.”Kilpatrick shot 6-for-16 from the field. He was 6-for-15 from the arc. He took one measly shot from inside the arc. Boeheim said he wanted his defense to pay particular attention to Kilpatrick, since Cashmere Wright didn’t play in Cincinnati’s last game and might’ve been off.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut Syracuse didn’t do enough of what Boeheim wanted.Cooney said after the game the guards needed to do a better job of knowing where Kilpatrick was at all times. They didn’t do that in this game and it nearly cost Syracuse the game. He said all the Bearcats did was move the ball effectively to spread out the Orange’s defense.“When they space it out like that it’s tough to get out to them,” Cooney said. “You’ve still got to get out there and play the 2-3 hard.”Six of Cincinnati’s 10 3-pointers came in the second half. In all, the Bearcats attempted 14 3-pointers in the second half, good for 42.9 percent in the half.Syracuse had a slim four-point lead at halftime, but it evaporated quickly after the break. JaQuon Parker hit a 3 from the right corner, which gave the Bearcats a 25-24 lead at 17:25.Just more than two minutes later, Kilpatrick hit a highlight 3 from the top of the key while his momentum took him backward. The Bearcats had a seven-point lead. Syracuse had to play catch-up for the rest of the second half.“We just starting moving the ball more, getting everybody more involved,” Parker said. “We just got a lot of open shots the second half.”Brandon Triche made a fast-break layup with about seven minutes left that closed Syracuse’s deficit to two. But Cincinnati answered right back. Kilpatrick hit a triple from the right wing that opened the Bearcats’ lead to five.Triche hit a jumper in the lane that closed the gap to five, but Parker hit a 3 to essentially negate the shot. Syracuse dug in and hit shots, but Cincinnati hit them, too.SU point guard Michael Carter-Williams said the only way to fix the problem is to close out the shooters more quickly.“Just sticking to our principles and getting out on shooters,” Carter-Willams said. “It’s what coach teaches us everyday. We broke down a few times. We can’t do that. We knew Kilpatrick and Wright came to shoot the ball, so we’ve just got to keep working on it.”Cincinnati’s biggest 3-point attempt came in the closing seconds, and it was the one clutch shot it missed. Syracuse was clinging to a 57-55 lead. Wright put up a 3 from the top of the key that went in and out.“It looked great. It just rolled right in and out,” Kilpatrick said. “We needed him to take the shots he took. Great shooters aren’t going to always make every shot.”While Syracuse had defensive breakdowns and failed to recognize where Cincinnati’s shooters were, the Bearcats still hit some tough, long shots. Still, not getting out on those shooters nearly cost the Orange the game.For a team that plays zone exclusively, it could happen again.“They had a couple good looks, we made mistakes,” Carter-Williams said. “But they were hitting tough shots. I give all the credit in the world to them, they were hitting tough shots.” Commentscenter_img Published on January 21, 2013 at 8:32 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemanlast_img read more

Game Day Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens

first_imgJacoby Jones out runs New York Jets punter Ryan Quigley on a punt return in Baltimore, Nov. 24. The Baltimore Ravens receiver and former ‘Dancing With the Stars’ performer accounted for 249 yards and scored the game’s lone touchdown in a 19-3 win over the New York Jets.(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)The black and gold are riding a three game win streak and find themselves in the thick of the wild card chase at 5-6. They’ll need to take their momentum to Baltimore on a short week and play the Ravens in an extremely hostile environment Thanksgiving night.The team knows this will be a huge test as the Super Bowl champs are just as hungry as the Steelers are to get to .500. The winner will be in great shape, the loser will be in big trouble. In traditional Steelers vs. Ravens fashion it will be a hard hitting, venomous, tight game that will probably come down to whoever has the ball last.Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:1. Pittsburgh needs to continue to run the no huddle. It’s been their most effective form of offense and has enabled Big Ben to avoid sacks and make more plays downfield.2. The o line must keep an eye on Terrell Suggs at all times. They did a pretty decent job of stopping him in the first matchup in Pittsburgh however he was still able to get to Big Ben a few times. The O line must not allow Suggs in the backfield or he’ll cause mayhem all game long.3. Stopping Torrey Smith is a must. Smith is a burner and a huge deep threat. Ike Taylor will most likely be matched up with him all game long. Taylor hasn’t fared well the past few weeks, he’ll need to make sure Smith doesn’t get behind him and keep the Raven’s deep threat to short gains only.4. The defense must continue to play effective football. The past few weeks they have gained 8 turnovers and have really turned up the pressure on the opposing quarterbacks. Led by Jason Worilds, they’ll need to continue to find themselves in the offensive backfield, forcing bad throws, gaining sacks and punching the ball loose. The Ravens are a ball control offense and having a defense cause that kind of ruckus would be a huge step towards gaining a win.last_img read more

Game Day Preview: Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel (99) is introduced before the start of an NFL preseason football game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 in Pittsburgh. It was Keisel’s first game this pre-season, since re-signing with the Steelers. The Panthers won 10-0. (AP Photo/Gene Puskar)The Steelers enter the 2014 season coming off of two consecutive 8-8 seasons. While last year the Steelers nearly slipped into the playoffs after finishing the season strong; the black and gold don’t want to put themselves in a position where they need to rely on other teams to help them in. The 0-4 start they had to last season clearly dug a hole too big to get out of.To open this season, they take on the in division rival Browns. The Browns should be improved and have an entire new coaching staff to help rebuild the once proud franchise. They drafted Johnny Manziel and expect big things out of him down the line. They’ll certainly miss Josh Gordon this season and in the end this is a team the Steelers should and need to beat if they want to consider themselves a threat to win the division.Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:1. The black and gold need to come out strong. They need to avoid early mistakes like turnovers and penalties and move the ball down the field effectively, utilizing the no huddle offense that Big Ben loves so much.2. Even with the no huddle offense, they need to run a balanced attack. LeVeon Bell and to a lesser degree LaGarrete Blount need to put up the yardage needed to control the clock and keep the defense honest.  Bell should go for at least 100 yards in order for the ground attack to be effective enough.3. The defense needs to rattle Brian Hoyer. Hoyer will already be looking over his shoulder at Johnny Football and will be prone to making mistakes because he’ll be trying so hard not to make one. The defense needs to pound Hoyer into the ground and deflate his confidence early and often.4. They can’t let the Browns hang around. The worst thing the team can do is let a mediocre Browns team hang around and keep their confidence. If the Steelers can get up big early, they should be able to coast to an easy win.Here are a Few Things to Watch:1.Ryan Shazier-Shazier will be on the third linebacker in Steeler history to start a season opener as a rookie, joining Jack Lambert and Kendrell Bell. Shazier, the teams number one draft pick in May, appears to be the real deal. Look for him to make big plays in clutch situations.2. Markus Wheaton-Wheaton enters his second season as the number two starting receiver.  Wheaton only netted six catches in his rookie year but the team expects big things out of him in year two. It will be interesting to see if he’s up for the challenge or if he’ll let Lance Moore or even Martavis Bryant pass him up.3. Dri Archer-Archer is another rookie who may be a big impact guy. He’ll see a lot of action out of the slot and as a third down back. He has the potential to be a special teams ace and is a true burner. Speed kills and he’s got a lot of it.4. Big Ben-He’s the leader of this team, the heart and soul. He is not going to want to start the season off like they did last year and he’s going to be instrumental in the development and growth of all the young talent on the offensive side of the ball. Watch how much of a leader he’s become.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.
