COS Speakers Series presents Cake, Rent, and Divorce Settlements: How to Divide Things Fairly

The 2016/2017 College of the Siskiyous Speakers Series will kick off its new season with a presentation by Galen Ferrel entitled “Cake, Rent, and Divorce Settlements: How to Divide Things Fairly” on Thursday, September 29. The presentation will be held in the Weed Campus Science building, room 110 and will start at 7:00 pm.

How can we divide something fairly when everyone deserves an equal share? What does it even mean to be fair? Although dividing homogeneous things fairly among different people is often straightforward (just give everyone an equal piece). Mathematics instructor Galen Ferrel will help us understand what it means for a division to be proportional, envy-free, or Pareto efficient and offer possible solutions to problems as complex as dividing a birthday cake or an estate fairly.

Miners shock West Valley 24-21

it

Submitted photo

YrekaTransferNewThe Yreka Miners caught the attention of pretty much every football fan in the Northern Section on Friday night, when they defeated the West Valley Eagles 24-21. In Cottonwood. At the Pasture. On Happy Valley Road…now renamed Homecoming Tears Lane.

It had been a while since the Miners took down the Eagles. Like, who knows how long ago? MaxPreps only has a record back to 2004, and Yreka had zero wins against West Valley from then until this season. The vast majority of the games were…ah..not close.

Of course, that was then and this is now. Something Coach John Maquez emphasized to his team before the game.

He told them, “You guys are not the past. You’re the future, and if you do not believe we can win, do not go out on the field.”

In the first quarter, Yreka accomplished something that has happened in the past, but not often. They took a lead, when tanner Marks kicked a field goal from 27 yards, with 3:44 to go in the period.

West Valley answered just over a minute later with a 79-yard TD pass play and extra point, to grab a 7-0 lead.

David Ruiz jetted 20 yards to put Yreka back on top midway through the second quarter. The Marks PAT made it 10-7. (more…)

Bears lose 4th quarter shootout to Durham

Chris Lujano (55) made life difficult for the Durham quarterback

Chris Lujano (55) made life difficult for the Durham quarterback

Both end zones were completely quiet on Friday night in Mt. Shasta, until the final 13 minutes of the game. Then, all of a sudden, the offenses took over what had been a defensive struggle, posting 33 points between the teams. In the end, it was the Durham Trojans on top 21-12.

The Bears drove into the Trojan red zone in the first quarter, only to cough up the ball at the 16-yard-line. They had a another opportunity with a minute left in the first half, when Mason Fitzmorris picked off a pass and returned it to the Durham 32. However, the Trojans held and Mt. Shasta turned the ball over on downs with a second left until intermission.

Durham successfully executed an onside kick to start the second half. While they didn’t score on that possession. the Trojans maintained the field position advantage, and wound up scoring on their next drive. With a minute to go in the 3rd quarter, Durham punched it in on a fourth and goal from the one-yard-line. The PAT was no good, but the Trojans led 6-0. (more…)

Bears junior varsity dismantles Durham

Joe Summers scores his 2nd of three touchdowns in the game

Joe Summers scores his 2nd of three touchdowns in the game

The Mt. Shasta Bears junior varsity football team took just 42 seconds to post their first touchdown against the Durham Trojans on Friday night. The Bears added a second tally before the midway point of the first quarter, and left little doubt who the victor would be. By the final horn, Mt. Shasta had completely dismantled the invading Trojans, 33-0.

It was the team’s third straight shutout.

Mt. Shasta received the opening kickoff, and the offense went to work at midfield following the return. Two runs by Joe Summers covered the distance, putting the Bears up 6-0, with 9:18 on the clock. The PAT was blocked.

It wasn’t long until the Bear offense went back on the field, courtesy of a Derek Nova interception at the Trojan 45.

Mt. Shasta ran into some difficulties and faced a fourth and 10 at the Durham 25. The ball went to Summers. He started right, then reversed field, picked up a couple of blocks, and went 25 yards to pay dirt, making it 12-0. The Bears were unable to add the conversion. (more…)

Wolves soccer defeats Lions by mystery score

etna-v-trinity-front-copy

Well, we know that Trinity defeated Etna in soccer on Thursday. But the score is a bit of a mystery. I saw two Trinity goals before I left for volleyball.

Etna’s coach says he thinks it was 6-0, but isn’t sure.  He knows for sure it was more than four.

Trinity pretty much doesn’t use MaxPreps–no results and no roster–cause, ya know, it’s new and confusing technology that’s been around for a decade or so.

Via twitter, a person from Trinity says the game was 7-0.

In any case, enjoy the photos.

Oh ya, almost forgot. There’s a picture in the slide show of a Trinity player scoring, but since there’s no roster posted on MaxPreps or on Trinity High School’s web page, she’ll have to go without the credit she deserves.
