Winter Sports At Newberry College

  • Posted on February 25, 2018 at 2:28 pm

Newberry College, a small private institution in Newberry, South Carolina, plays NCAA Division II sports. The college is a member of the South Atlantic Conference (SAC). Winter sports played at Newberry are mens basketball, womens basketball, and wrestling. Wrestling is not a SAC sport, and the Newberry Wolves wrestle against schools in NCAA Division II Super Region I.
Mens and womens basketball seasons began in early November with games and tournaments against mainly non-conference opponents. After the holiday break, the schedule gets tough as both the men and the women will face their South Atlantic Conference rivals. The men lost their only conference game in December in overtime to Lincoln Memorial University, while the women won their game. The women have had a strong start to their 2012-13 season, with a 6-2 (1-0) record thus far. The mens record is currently 4-5 (0-1) at the holiday break.

The mens and womens basketball teams have very similar schedules. On January 5 the Newberry teams will host conference rival Mars Hill. Other January home games are scheduled against Wingate University on 1/16, Catawba on 1/19, and Tusculum on 1/26. In February the Newberry men and women will host Anderson University (SC) on 2/6, Carson-Newman on 2/16, and Brevard College on 2/20. Their last home games will be March 2 against Lenoir Rhyne. These are all South Atlantic Conference match ups. The SAC Championships will be held In Greenville, South Carolina March 6-10, 2013.

Newberry College basketball games are played at Eleazer Arena, which seats 1,600 fans. The arena is part of the colleges physical education complex on Luther Street. Single game tickets are $5 for adults. Children ages 12 and under are admitted free.

Newberrys wrestling team is top ranked this year in NCAA Division II Super Region I. They have won the Super Region I championship the last five years. As of December 12, Newberry was #1 in tournament points in the Basford Division II Rankings. In early January the Wolves will head to the Midwest to wrestle Central Missouri and Newman, and then participate in the NCAA National Duals in Springfield, Illinois. The Newberry team returns home to host the Super Region I Duals January 25-26. Colleges scheduled to participate in the duals are Seton Hill, West Liberty, Ohio Valley, East Stroudsburg, and Pitt-Johnstown.

In February Newberry hosts the Newberry Open on 2/3, UNC Pembroke on 2/7, and Anderson on 2/13. The NCAA Super Region I Tournament is scheduled for February 22-23 in Kutztown, PA. The NCAA Division II National Tournament will take place March 8-9 in Birmingham, AL. Home wrestling matches are held in Eleazer Arena, and tickets are $5 for adults.

Lumislim Leads The Way- Exciting New Models

  • Posted on February 25, 2018 at 8:18 am

Lumislim began to break ground in August 2010 when it launched in the UK through Crystal medical, the sole distributor. Since Lumislim entered the marketplace it has challenged the idea that this type of equipment should be expensive. Selling at around a 3rd of the Strawberry lipo, and half the price of the Ilipo, Lumislim gains market share daily. Some of the advantages of acquiring a Laser Lipo system at the price that Lumislim sells at include being able to offer treatments at a price that more people can afford, therefore capturing more business, lower setup up costs, easy acquisition and no long term expensive maintenance contracts.

Lumislim has now evolved based on customer demand. the new model range is as follows :-

Lumislim Pro 44 – This is the classic Lumislim model and comprises 4 treatment paddles and 2 Lymph diodes
Lumislim Pro 84 – New to the range, this fantastic 8 paddle version allows you to treat more areas simultaneously, therefore offering better value to your clients.
Lumislim Pro DUO – Buy 1 machine and treat 2 clients at the same time. This great addition to the line up makes most commercial sense, as you can maximize your income and the cost is very low.

More Lumislim models are planned in order to be as comprehensive as possible in terms of what value is offered. The brand continues to grow and people now see that it is not just the price that makes the product such a no-brainer, it works, and it works well.

Interestingly, Crystal Medical do not make fantastic claims with respect to what Lumislim can do. Specifically, smoking cessation, which other makers of such equipment claim as one of the features of their machine. The reason Lumislim is not marketed as a cure for smoking is because there is no medical evidence to suggest that it works. Indeed, there is only anecdotal evidence with such low success rates that it is more likely to be a placebo effect than anything to do with treatment from a laser lipo system.

What people may find interesting is that Laser pointers work on virtually the same wavelength as the smoking cessation option of some machines, and they only cost a few pounds/dollars. The begs a whole host of questions in terms of value for money, validity of claims etc.

There are also claims that Low Level laser can get rid of stretchmarks. This is actually virtually impossible, as the collegan is already broken down and the tissue cannot be repaired.

There are no such claims made in respect of Lumislim. It is a weight loss device that is highly effective and credible, and of course, sensibly priced.
