The Numbers Game

Maybe it was the snow, cold and slick turf; or maybe it was moving the contest to Onondaga Hill, but one thing is certain: Carolina is becoming a stumbling block for Syracuse University sports fans. In March, the men’s basketball team fell short in the NCAA semi finals to the University of North Carolina (UNC), and today , with ACC bragging rights and a shot at the Soccer Cup Final Four at stake, the Tarheels used a physical defense and clock management to outlast the maximum effort of the Orangemen at Onondaga Community College’s David W. Murphy Field. The final score was 1-0.
The two teams battled to a 0-0 double overtime tie in September.
UNC advances to face Providence.
Some ways to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation, according to Carl Schramm, Syracuse University Professor and Lemoyne College grad, are as follows:
- Make economies grow
- Restore local banks (funding)
- Have less government involvement and reduce regulatory burdens
More start-ups equals more jobs, and at their best entrepreneurs are synthesizers, he said.
The Syracuse-native and former head of the Kauffman Foundation started Global Entrepreneur Week back in 2007. As part of his remarks on Monday, he also talked about our legacy of innovation here in the Salt City. Syracuse , now known for eds and meds, was once fertile ground for start up enterprises. In the days of the Erie Canal, he said, New York State was like Silicon Valley. Together pioneering ventures such as Sanderson Bros. Steel and LC Smith Typewriters helped solidify our region’s national reputation back in the day.
One business leader in the audience hinted that manufacturing may be poised for a healthy resurgence in these parts.
Schramm wouldn’t directly answer if Syracuse was a fast city or a failing city, but to read his commentary on our recent situation, click here.
The ideas and dialogue from the Global Entrepreneurship Week at Syracuse University continues thru Nov. 18.
Last month, the Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows was elected 11th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis. Rev. Baskerville-Burrows is the first black, female diocesan bishop in the history of the Episcopal Church.
You can do anything you put your mind to…wait, no you can’t. According to comedian Chris D’elia, we may think we are special; think we have our own theme music; think we are men (and women) on fire, but actually, we are just extras in someone else’s movie. The 36-year old actor/funny man, who looks like a cross between Pau Gasol, Marc Maron and a young Kenny Loggins, laid down some hilarious bits during a Parent’s Weekend show at Syracuse University last night. Of course, some of the jokes provided some good old fashion shock value for some of the parents, but the students laughed anyway (in the seats right next to them) at subjects such as bear encounters, buying pants for your man friend, and the difficulty of digesting too much Chipolte and Kit Kats.
D’elia has the physical comedy of a young Jim Carrey and by the time he reached the closing segment about his friend’s daughter Onica, he had the entire crowd totally hooked.
D’elia has starred in sitcoms Whitney and Undateable.” His next comedy gigs are in Albany.
Michael Lenoci opened the show.
