Students participate in LA bike tour with CicLAvia

first_imgStudents and community members gathered on Trousdale Parkway Sunday morning in preparation for the Bike on Fig to CicLAvia event, which gave riders a chance to explore the heart of Los Angeles on “car-free” streets. The event was coordinated by BikeSafe USC, a coalition of several different campus groups, and also featured booths from Transportation, Sustainability and Student Wellness.Bikers met on campus at 9:30 a.m. to participate in bike safety activities, learn new skills and prepare for the ride to CicLAvia. CicLAvia allows cyclists to explore popular neighborhoods such as Downtown, Chinatown, Little Tokyo and East L.A., without regular automobile traffic.“I hadn’t done the original Heart of LA CicLAvia — although I’ve been here for four years now and have participated in [other] events over [the past] three-and-a-half years — because I’ve always been sick or out of town,” said Lena Uszkoreit, a Ph.D student in the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism studying communication. “[I’m] really excited about doing the original one.”Community member Uzoma Mmeje said the event allowed him to learn more about safety protocols, and also to register his bike on campus.“Now, any time we’re on campus, we can actually have that record,” Mmeje said.According to BikeSafe USC coordinator Alison Kendall, the project was funded with a city of Los Angeles grant and also had a consulting team with expertise in biking to help and inform bikers. Student groups, including the Environmental Students Assembly and the Associated Students of Planning and Development, also helped coordinate and publicize the event.Kendall said the event was designed in anticipation of the MyFigueroa project, which intends to improve streets around the area.“The MyFigueroa project is incredibly exciting for Los Angeles because it’s what’s called a ‘complete streets project,’” Kendall said. “It’s one of the few street improvement projects that actually prioritizes pedestrians, cyclists and transit users over car drivers.”In addition to promoting the project, Kendall hopes that the Bike on Fig to CicLAvia will encourage more students and community members to use bike riding as their form of transportation.“Biking is a great way to have fun, stay fit, get around and also use your car less and pollute less, so it’s just wonderful on every single front,” Kendall said. “What we hope is that people become good bike citizens, that they become aware of how they can stay safe and how they can protect the pedestrians.”last_img read more

Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Evan Engram, Gerald Everett, Greg Olsen affect Week 15 TE rankings

first_imgGreg Olsen concussion statusOlsen missed Week 14 after getting concussed in Week 13. Ian Thomas saw 10 targets and scored a touchdown in Olsen’s absence. A return for Olsen will depend on clearing the NFL’s concussion protocol.WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPThe Panthers take on the Seahawks in Week 15, who just allowed a 100-yard game to Tyler Higbee, so whichever of Olsen or Thomas gets the start should be considered a back-end fantasy starter. If Evan Engram can make it back for Week 15, the tight end rankings will be nearly back to full strength (although Mark Andrews’ injury means that might not be totally true). We’re also looking for the latest updates on Gerald Everett and Greg Olsen, who each missed Week 14, as well. If they remain out, Tyler Higbee and Ian Thomas would once again serve as priority waiver pickups and sleepers.For updates on injured QBs Patrick Mahomes, Jameis Winston, and Tom Brady, click here; for news on banged-up WRs Calvin Ridley, Mike Evans, DJ Chark, and DeVante Parker, go here; for the latest on injured RBs Derrius Guice, Derrick Henry, and more, go here; for the latest on ailing TEs Noah Fant, Ryan Griffin, Mark Andrews, and Jared Cook, click here; for updates on WRs Adam Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Will Fuller, and T.Y.

WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerEvan Engram injury updateAfter there was some speculation that Engram (foot) would return for Week 14, he was ruled out Saturday ahead of the Giants’ Monday night game. He’s missed four-straight contests due to a foot injury, allowing Kaden Smith to continue to start. New York takes on the Dolphins on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Week 15.Engram gets plugged right back into fantasy lineups if he’s active, while Smith remains a deep-league option if he gets the start against the Dolphins.WEEK 15: Top Waiver PickupsGerald Everett injury newsEverett (knee) has missed two straight games while Tyler Higbee has topped 100 yards in both. Sean McVay told reporters Monday that Everett is progressing but will likely be held out of practice early in the week.Considering Higbee had already leapfrogged Everett before the injury, anyone who’s relying on Higbee at this point shouldn’t be worried. Higbee proved his 100-yard game against the Cardinals wasn’t a fluke by doing it again, so he’s a borderline fantasy starter for Week 15 against the Cowboys. WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endlast_img read more
