The Numbers Game

UNC midfielder Jeremy Kelly scored the game’s lone goal with 13:46 remaining in the first half.

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.

Lighting the Fuse of Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Carl Schramm,author, professor and founder of Global Entrepreneurship Week, gave a lunchtime talk at Bird Library on Monday.

Carl Schramm,economist, author, professor and founder of Global Entrepreneurship Week, gave a lunchtime talk at Bird Library on Monday.

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.

Everybody Loves Chris (in the end)

Chris D'elia

As a comic Chris D’elia seeks to change the game, not let the game change him.

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.

When your friend buys you pants that fit, according to D'elia, just say no.

If your friend buys you pants that fit, according to D’elia, just say no.

Bold. Honest. Funny.

Radio and TV personality Charlamagne Tha God visited Syracuse University yesterday.

Charlamagne made his way up from South Carolina, and is now a star in the number one U.S. radio market.  The Breakfast Club Morning Show co-host visited Syracuse University last night and encouraged students at the Newhouse School to empower themselves by creating their own platforms, being resourceful, and blending their certification (degree) with real-world education. He said he was motivated early by radio personalities such as Wendy Williams, Howard Stern, Tom Joyner and the late Doug Banks.

Learn to recognize good opportunities even if they don’t come with a paycheck, he said.

Known for juggling many appearances and media gigs, he also shared that he is currently reading The One Thing by Gary Zeller.
