Sacramento State racks up 471 yards of offense, upsets No. 22 Eastern Washington 48-27

 Cache   

SACRAMENTO, California – A towel on his head and hands on his face, Eastern Washington quarterback Eric Barriere appeared dejected as he sat alone on the Hornet Stadium bench midway through the second quarter.

Barriere was shelved for portions of the second and third quarters after being looked at by trainers for an unspecified injury, but Sacramento State had already established a two-touchdown lead before his initial exit, including a Barriere interception that turned into a 27-yard scoring return.

When the Walter Payton Award candidate returned after a few fruitless drives with backup Gunner Talkington, the Eagles regained their pulse, pulling within a possession of the resurgent Hornets, who then had a clock-eating touchdown drive for a 41-27 lead.

George Obinna then proceeded to add an exclamation point.

Sacramento State’s star defensive end picked up a Barriere fumble in the final 2 minutes and rumbled 73 yards for the Hornets’ in a convincing 48-27 upset of the swooning Eagles.

The Hornets (3-2, 1-0 Big Sky) totaled 471 yards against EWU, their first home win over the Eagles in program history.

The Eagles (2-4, 1-1) were picked to win the Big Sky and were ranked as high as No. 4 in the preseason. With five games remaining, they will likely have to win out for a chance at a playoff berth or a possible share of the title.

EWU offensive tackle Chris Schlichting held back emotion as he voiced his frustration over the loss and the program’s worst start since 2011.

“We have potential All-Americans all throughout that locker room, we have dudes who know what they’re doing, so this is just hard,” Schlichting said. “Especially since you want to win for the fans and win for this university, then you do stuff like this.”

Sacramento State, led by former EWU offensive coordinator Troy Taylor, was also menacing on defense.

Leading the Big Sky in fewest points allowed heading into the game, Sacramento State piled up seven sacks in its first win over an Football Championship Subdivision Top 25 team since 2012.

Hornets quarterback Kevin Thomson orchestrated a lengthy, 13-play touchdown drive in the fourth quarter to make it 41-27 with 6:16 remaining that took away the Eagles’ momentum.

Thomson, an Auburn, Washington, native, passed for 315 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Hornets jump out to an early 21-7 lead. He wasn’t sacked.

Elijah Dotson also frustrated the Eagles with 103 rushing yards.

The typically downtrodden Hornets have also shut out Northern Colorado 50-0 and gave brawny Football Bowl Subdivision foes Arizona State (19-7 loss) and Fresno State (34-20 loss) fits.

“We came in with the expectation to win the game, and nobody blinked,” said Taylor, an offensive coordinator at EWU in 2016. “Everyone bought it and it’s nice to see them rewarded with a big win.”

EWU came out hot, though.

The Eagles scored on the game’s opening possession, a 12-play drive capped by Barriere’s 7-yard touchdown pass to Talolo Limu-Jones.

When Barriere left in the second quarter with his team trailing, the Eagles were ineffective. Talkington struggled through a series of three-and-out drives, completing 2 of 11 passes for 27 yards, and was sacked twice.

“We’re depleted, but so what – that’s not an excuse,” EWU coach Aaron Best said. “We’re not good enough in some areas. We aren’t disciplined enough in areas. We don’t make enough plays in areas and we hold too much on offense.”

Barriere completed 22 of 42 passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns an interception and rushed for 103 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, a statistic boosted by a 92-yard touchdown run in the first half.

“He was shifty, hard to tackle,” Obinna said of Barriere. “Every time he ran out of the pocket, it was an extra effort. But just trusting everyone to do their job is what it came down to.”

EWU’s Jayson Williams hauled in seven passes for 129 yards a touchdown and Dehonta Hayes and a game-high 17 tackles. Hayes was also ejected for a late targeting penalty.

A staff uprising at Sports Illustrated...

Following Tuesday's New York Post report that editor-in-chief Chris Stone is exiting Sports Illustrated after 27 years with the magazine, The Wall Street Journal added late Wednesday evening that the brand's new operator, TheMaven Inc., is planning to lay off more than 40 staffers and replace them with "as many as 200 contract workers in coming months to cover sports," citing people familiar with the matter.

The news follows what has been a tumultuous two years for the 65-year-old magazine since its parent company, Time Inc., was acquired by Meredith Corp. in early 2018. After the merger, Meredith put a handful of former Time Inc. titles, including Sports IllustratedTime and Fortune, up for sale in order to focus on its newly expanded suite of entertainment, food and lifestyle magazines.

In May, Meredith sold SI to the licensing firm Authentic Brands Group, with an agreement that would allow Meredith to continue running SI's media operations for up to two years. That agreement lasted approximately two weeks, as ABG announced, in mid-June, a new licensing deal that would transfer the next 10 years of SI's operations to TheMaven—a two-year-old startup that bills itself as "a digital distribution and monetization platform," acquired TheStreet over the summer for $16.5 million and also hosts the websites of several Active Interest Media magazines.

On Thursday afternoon, a Twitter account purportedly belonging to "Sports Illustrated employees concerned about our future" went live, issuing an impassioned plea to Meredith and ABG to "drop TheMaven and save Sports Illustrated."

"TheMaven wants to replace top journalists in the industry with a network of Maven freelancers and bloggers, while reducing or eliminating departments that have ensured that the stories we publish and produce meet the highest standards," the statement reads. "With minutes' notice, transition meetings were canceled, with our futures and families hanging in the balance. The way that today's events have been handled suggests that the publication is in unstable hands."

As of Thursday evening, several current and former SI employees had retweeted the statement, along with numerous editorial staffers announcing that they had been let go. At around 7pm Eastern, TheMaven issued a statement, including the assurance that "approximately 300 distinct voices, the majority of which are journalists, will be producing stories for SI by January 2020, which will help drive an increase in SI content production."

Layoffs at Pitchfork...

Elsewhere, Condé Nast laid off Pitchfork's six-person video team as part of a move that will see those duties shifted to Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE), the company's video production arm.

Part of a broader reorganization that's seen the video operations of most of Condé's brands centralized under CNE, the six Pitchfork staffers, a mix of full-time and freelance employees, have been offered the opportunity to apply for two open positions there.

"These layoffs affirm our need for a strong union at Pitchfork," read a statement from Pitchfork's editorial staff union, which was organized earlier this year in part as a reaction to previous rounds of layoffs and is represented by the NewsGuild of New York alongside fellow Condé titles Ars Technica and The New Yorker. "We are frustrated by how our coworkers have been treated throughout this process. Not only were they told that the financial details of their severance packages would depend on a 'professional' exit, but they were also asked to plan projects that would exceed their established exit date, which kept changing due to management's lack of foresight."

Devin Nunes sues Esquire over Iowa farm story...

In between "Fox & Friends" appearances this week, Rep. Devin Nunes—a congressman from California and ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee—filed a $75 million defamation suit against Esquire, parent company Hearst Magazines and writer Ryan Lizza over a November 2018 article about Nunes' family's dairy farm in Iowa.

Filed in U.S. district court in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the suit—which variously describes Lizza's article as "false and defamatory," "click-bait, sensationalist, egregious misstatements" and "a scandalous hit piece," seeks monetary damages "for the insult, pain, embarrassment, humiliation, mental suffering, anguish, and injury to [Nunes'] good name and professional reputation in Iowa and elsewhere," adding that Lizza and Esquire "should be punished for their unlawful actions and a very strong message needs to be sent to prevent other so-called 'journalists' from acting in a similar way."

Nunes' main point of contention, per the court filing, is Lizza and Esquire's casting of the story as revealing a "politically explosive secret," including the article's assertion that Nunes and his family had conspired to hide the fact that they'd moved their dairy farm from their native California to Sibley, Iowa in 2006. The complaint does not specifically dispute one of the article's primary implications: that the Nunes' farm, like many others in the region, probably relies on undocumented labor.

As of last month, Lizza is now chief Washington correspondent at Politico.

Esquire is not alone in being named a defendant in a Nunes-initiated defamation suit this year. In March, Nunes filed a $250 million defamation suit against Twitter and a pair of parody accounts devoted to mocking him on the platform, and in August, he sued McClatchy Co. and The Fresno Bee—a newspaper headquartered about two miles outside the district he represents—for $150 million over "character assassination" and "knowingly false" reports allegedly meant to derail his 2018 congressional campaign, a lawsuit McClatchy described as "a baseless attack on local journalism and a free press."

Hearst Magazines has not yet returned a request for comment.

More than half of U.S. adults get news from Facebook...

A July survey of more than 5,000 U.S. adults by Pew Research Center, the findings of which were revealed Wednesday, suggests that a majority of Americans believe social media networks have too much control over the news that users are exposed to on the platforms.

The full report can be accessed here, but perhaps most salient to publishers: the study suggests that 52% of all U.S. adults and 73% of Facebook users get news on the platform, compared to 28% of adults who get news on YouTube and 17% who get it on Twitter, and those numbers appear to be increasing.

"More than half of U.S. adults get news from social media often or sometimes (55%), up from 47% in 2018," the report says. "About three-in-ten Americans now get news on social media often (28%), up from 20% in 2018."

It's merger season!

Following last week's merger of Vox Media and New York magazine, Vice Media ended months of speculation by revealing, on Wednesday, that it's reached an agreement to acquire Refinery29 in a deal that values the latter brand at around $400 million, according to multiple estimates.

In a memo to staff, Vice CEO Nancy Dubuc, who was brought in from A&E Networks to replace co-founder Shane Smith last year, touted Refinery29's large female audience—claiming the combined companies will now reach 350 million people worldwide each month—its event series 29Rooms and "the synergies between our two cultures, values and beliefs," among other things.

Dubuc added that Refinery29 will remain a distinct brand within Vice Media's portfolio, similar to earlier acquisitions i-D and Garage magazines, with the deal expected to close "over the next several weeks."

In other consolidation news, Taboola and Outbrain—a pair of digital advertising platforms primarily known as the firms behind the links "you might also like" at the bottom of news articles—announced Thursday that they have entered an agreement to merge, pending regulatory approval.

Upon closing, the combined company would assume the Taboola brand name and be run by Taboola founder and CEO Adam Singolda, with Outbrain shareholders receiving a 30% stake as well as $250 million in cash in the deal. A joint announcement from the companies said that Taboola COO Eldad Maniv and Outbrain co-CEOs David Kostman and Yaron Galai will remain involved at least through a transitional period, but wasn't clear on what comes after that.

The companies said the merger will provide advertisers with "a meaningful competitive alternative to Google and Facebook" and enable increased investment in technology, which they say will drive more revenue to publishers and improve the user experience on their clients' sites.

How an underdog Fresno startup finds local talent

 Cache   

One thing about building a business that no one ever tells you: your company’s culture is set in stone by the time you hire your tenth employee. Who you hire largely determines your ability to succeed; a recent study found 65 percent of startups fail due to people-related reasons. No pressure, right? 

We're Bitwise Industries, a Central California startup driving economic growth despite being far from the streets of Los Angeles and the high-tech workspaces of the Bay Area. Bitwise taps into the “human potential” of our hometown of Fresno in three key ways: teaching digital skills at our coding school, renovating buildings to provide physical spaces for more than 200 startups and hiring local tech talent at our custom software development firm. 

After five years and more than 125 hires, we have a 90 percent retention rate and a team that is as diverse as Fresno itself: 40 percent women, 50 percent people of color and 20 percent first-generation Americans. We’ve trained more than 4000 local people to code and created more than 1000 jobs, yet the question we get asked most during this period of very fast growth is: "How do you find talent to hire?"

We built our company largely by using free tools (like Google Analytics), by borrowing resources (transforming abandoned buildings into coworking spaces) and by tapping into a nontraditional talent pool (30 percent of the population of Fresno lives below the poverty level). To say we are underdogs is an understatement. So getting things like hiring right doesn’t just fit nicely on a bumper sticker; it’s crucial to the survival of our business. 

If you’re an underdog like us, here’s my advice for how to find great talent in unexpected places.

Take a little extra time. 

The world would have you believe that all the most talented people are already locked up in great jobs. This is categorically false. The more people we teach, the more talent grows. When you look for nontraditional people from nontraditional places and you take an honest bet on them, the idea of any “talent war” goes away.

Have their back, and make sure they know it. 

Your employees have to know you have their backs. Most of them could work anywhere, and they choose to work for you, so treat that like the gift it is. Do that right, and they’ll have your back, too.

When you hire, make sure you’d be willing to stand up for this person in a fight. At the end of a grueling and disappointing period of time, or when mistakes get made, you have to be willing to go to bat for your people. 

Understand that diversity is great for business. 

Inclusion isn’t just the right thing to do. It’s also a smart business move. The wide-ranging points of view that employees of diverse backgrounds contribute allows a business to attack complex, fast-moving problems from a variety of angles. Cultivate a team that’s up for the challenge.

Partner up.

While founders wear many hats, you simply can’t do everything yourself. Collaborate with like-minded people and organizations to amplify the efforts—like training diverse talent—that really matter to you and reach the people you may want to hire. 

Bitwise Industries is excited to work with Google to create even more opportunities in and beyond Central California. We’re partnering with Grow with Google to provide workshops, resources and trainings related to online marketing, data science, design and more. We’re also teaming up with Google for Startups to offer scholarships for our new six-month founders’ development program, intended to help aspiring entrepreneurs of all backgrounds create product-driven, revenue-generating companies. It’s great to know that Google is as invested in us as founders, like we at Bitwise are invested in the people of “underdog” cities like Fresno. Great talent can—and does—come from anywhere.

Karen Pendleton, One of the Original Mouseketeers, Dies at 73

The Hollywood Reporter

By Mike Barnes
10/7/2019

She was one of only nine kids who appeared on 'The Mickey Mouse Club' during its entire original run.

Karen Pendleton, one of the original Mouseketeers on The Mickey Mouse Club, died from a heart attack on Sunday in Fresno, California, Disney historian and author Lorraine Santoli announced. She was 73.

Among the youngest of the kids on the show, Pendleton was known for her shoulder-length blond curls and for being paired with fellow Mouseketeer Cubby O'Brien in the show's sweet closing number. "Alma Mater" ("Now it's time to say goodbye to all our company …").

Pendleton worked on the Disney series throughout its four-year run (1955-59) on ABC, then entertained generations of children around the world for decades after it played in syndication. She was one of only nine kids that appeared on the program during its entire original airing.

Born on Aug. 1, 1946, in Glendale, California, Pendleton was recruited to audition for The Mickey Mouse Club when producers approached dancing schools in the Los Angeles area seeking kids to try out for a spot on the show.

After The Mickey Mouse Club, Pendleton left show business, finished high school, got married, had a daughter in 1973 and divorced in 1981. In 1983, she was involved in an automobile accident that paralyzed her from the waist down. She needed a wheelchair for the rest of her life but returned to school to earn bachelor's and master's degrees.

Pendleton also went on to work at a shelter for battered women and became an advocate for those with disabilities as a board member for the California Association of the Physically Handicapped.
She also co-starred in many Mickey Mouse Club reunion shows and parades at Disneyland and at fan shows and conventions.

"My mom loved her Mouseketeer family," her daughter, Staci, said in a statement. "Getting together with [her co-stars] was always a high point. It gave her the opportunity to relive great memories and to meet so many Mickey Mouse Club fans that watched the show as kids and loved her. Many told her that they named their daughters Karen in her honor."
 
Pendleton also is survived by two grandchildren.


PENDLETON, Karen (Karen Anita Pendleton)
