‘Live, work and play’: Housing, hotel, offices, food and more proposed for University Research Park | Local Government

The bucolic, sprawling University Research Park on the West Side, home to some of the area’s most illustrious biotech companies, is poised to begin a new era.

The research park is teaming with the Mandel Group of Milwaukee on an ambitious, multi-phase project with 400,000 square feet of new construction, including housing, a hotel, lab/office space, food hall, climbing gym and parking. It marks a major evolution for the 250-acre park, now characterized by modern labs and office buildings surrounded by green spaces and parking lots.

The project, called “Element Collective,” came in response to a research park request for developer proposals and would introduce a more urban environment where office tenants could live, host visitors, eat and recreate, and also provide a new set of amenities for the surrounding area.

“It’s a place to have lunch with a colleague, coffee with an investor, or a drink with a prospective business partner,” park managing director Aaron Olver said. “It will give our employees an option to live, work and play within the URP community without reliance on an automobile. And it will open University Research Park to the community beyond the research park.”

Robert Monnat, senior partner at Mandel Group, declined to share specifics of the proposal until an online neighborhood meeting set for 7 p.m. Nov. 16.

Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence to travel with team but not play due to COVID-19 protocol

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, will travel with the top-ranked Tigers for Saturday’s game at No. 4 Notre Dame.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Wednesday Lawrence will serve as an unofficial assistant coach, helping freshman replacement D.J. Uiagalelei.

Lawrence is “incredibly knowledgeable,” Swinney said. “He’s been there. I think he’ll be able to bring a great presence. He’s got a  great mind. He’s got great eyes. So he’s going to be Coach Lawrence.”

Lawrence tested positive for the coronavirus last Wednesday, learned of the result on Thursday. Uiagalelei stepped in and led Clemson to a 34-28 victory against Boston College. It was the Tigers’ biggest comeback — from 18 points behind — in Memorial Stadium history. Lawrence has been in a 10-day period of isolation but has been engaged in team activities and talking to the other quarterbacks by video.

Sidelined because of a positive test for COVID-19, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence (16) will serve as a student coach Saturday at Notre Dame, helping freshman D.J. Uiagalelei.

“He’s been in the meetings. He’s been Zooming and all that stuff,” Swinney said. “He’s doing well. He’s anxious to get out. He gets back with us Thursday or Friday. So he’ll be with us. He’ll travel with us. He just can’t play because of the cardiac-back-to-play protocol (added to the 10-day period). There’s no way to get him through that in time for him to play in the game.”

Injured linebacker James Skalski also will make the trip for the highly anticipated matchup in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“So we’ll have Coach Lawrence and Coach Skalski,” Swinney said. “I told them I was not going to take them unless they were going to be productive coaches for us. They’ll both take a lot of pride in that.”

Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence will travel to Notre Dame game but not play | Clemson

CLEMSON — Trevor Lawrence will be on the sideline for No. 1 Clemson’s primetime showdown with No. 4 Notre Dame this Saturday but won’t play, coach Dabo Swinney confirmed Tuesday.

As Clemson's Lawrence remains in virus isolation, teammates' recovery can be instructive

It was announced last Thursday the quarterback had tested positive for COVID-19. Swinney said Lawrence will have completed his 10-day isolation by this weekend but will still need to pass a series of cardiovascular tests before returning to the field.

Lawrence, a Heisman Trophy contender and the likely No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, has been participating in team meetings via Zoom. Freshman quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei started in his stead in a thrilling win over Boston College last Saturday and will get the nod again against the Fighting Irish.

Will Trevor Lawrence play vs Notre Dame? No but he’ll travel

Trevor Lawrence won’t be playing against Notre Dame, but he will be on the sideline.

Clemson’s star quarterback will travel with the team to South Bend for Saturday’s Top 5 showdown.

Lawrence will have completed the required 10-day isolation period in time to travel with the Tigers, but he will not have passed the cardiac requirements.

“He’s doing great. He really is,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Tuesday. “He’s in the meetings. He’s Zooming in and all that stuff. So he’s doing well. He’s just anxious to get out. He’s back with us Thursday or Friday, so he’ll be with us. He’ll travel with us. He just can’t play because of the cardiac back-to-play protocol that’s in place.”

Atlantic Coast Conference rules require players to isolate for at least 10 days from the start of symptoms or a positive test. They must then undergo a cardiac evaluation before beginning a phased return and a re-acclimatization period.

There is no set minimum period for the phased return from the ACC. For Clemson athletes, it’s typically a minimum of two to three days for the phased return.

Having Lawrence at the game will provide another voice of reassurance and another set of eyes to help Tigers freshman quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei.

The California native will be making his first career road start and second career start against the Irish. Last week against Boston College, Uiagalelei completed 30-of-41 passes for 342 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also had a 30-yard touchdown run.

Swinney is counting on Lawrence to help Clemson’s young QB on Saturday.

“He’s an incredibly knowledgeable guy and he’s been there,” Swinney said of Lawrence. “I think he’ll be able to bring a good presence to D.J. He’s got a great mind. He’s got great eyes. So he’s gonna be coach Lawrence.”

In addition to being down its starting quarterback, senior defensive leader and starting middle linebacker James Skalski will also miss the Notre Dame game.

Skalski has a groin injury and has been out the past two weeks. But like Lawrence, Skalski will travel with the team and will do everything he can to help on the sideline. Redshirt sophomore Jake Venables will start in Skalski’s place.

“Skalski’s going to be with us as well, so we’ll have coach Lawrence and coach Skalski this week,” Swinney said. “I told them I wasn’t gonna take them unless they were gonna be productive coaches for us, so that’s going to be their roles this week. So they’ll both take a lot of pride in that.”

No. 1 Clemson (7-0) at No. 4 Notre Dame (6-0)

When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday

Where: Notre Dame Stadium


Line: Clemson by 5.5

COVID tests should play bigger role in international travel: WHO expert

GENEVA (Reuters) – COVID tests should be more widely used in international travel than quarantines, the chair of the World Health Organization’s Emergency Committee said on Friday.

Didier Houssin, chair of the independent panel of experts advising WHO on the COVID-19 pandemic, said it was important for the U.N. agency to provide fresh guidance on safe international air travel.

“And clearly the use of the tests is certainly now supposed to have a much larger place compared to quarantine, for example, which would certainly facilitate things considering all the efforts which have been made by airlines and by airports,” Houssin told a news conference.

WHO’s top emergency expert Mike Ryan said that travelling was now “relatively safe” and posed a “relatively low” health risk, but that “there is no zero risk”.

“Therefore it is trade-off that countries have to make, the risk of a traveller arriving and potentially starting another chain of transmission, against the obvious benefit of allowing travel from a social and an economic point of view,” he said.

“You can add testing and different measures into that. We are looking at that right now. We will be coming out very soon with more advice for countries in terms of the risk management process.”

Ryan said that a WHO-led international team of scientists had held their first virtual meeting with Chinese counterparts regarding joint investigations into the origin of the novel coronavirus that emerged in China last December.

“We fully expect the team to deploy on the ground,” he said, giving no timeframe.

Ryan warned that it was difficult to do scientific work on the virus origin in a “politically intoxicated” environment.

“We are scientists. We want the best possible scientific outcome generating the best possible evidence for the origin of this disease,” he said.

Left a vacation to come and play for Sunrisers Hyderabad, glad I did, says Jason Holder

West Indies captain Jason Holder said he was waiting for an opportunity to return to the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he is glad that the call from Sunrisers Hyderabad came even though it came in the form of injury replacement after Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh who was ruled out of the tournament after only one game for the former champions.

Jason Holder flew in as a replacement and got his first opportunity at IPL 2020 on Thursday when Sunrisers took on Rajasthan Royals in a crunch encounter. Holder made an immediate impact by picking up 3 crucial wickets in their 8-wicket win.

Holder came into the playing XI following an injury to Kane Williamson. Holder’s all-round skills added the much-needed solidity to the Sunrisers’s side who lacked firepower in the pace bowling department as well as the middle-order. Holder was not needed to bat as Sunrisers gunned down a 155-run chase with 11 balls and 8 wickets to spare, thanks to a fine 140-run unbeaten stand between Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar.

However, Holder, as expected, did the damage with the ball, picking up the wickets of Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Riyan Parag apart from running out Robin Uthappa, who was looking in good touch.

Holder said he had wanted to get back to the IPL for quite some time and he made a ‘tough’ decision as he had left a vacation mid-way to join the IPL. Notably, Holder last played in the IPL in 2016.

IPL 2020: Full Coverage | Points Table

“Yeah, it’s pleasing. Obviously, it had been a while since I played in the IPL. I wanted to get back to IPl for a long time. It was really good to get an opportunity here even though it was through an injury. Nevertheless, I am grateful for the opportunity. Glad I came in, I was able to make an impact on the game,” Holder told Vijay Shankar during an interaction for IPL.

“I left vacation to come here and play, left the missus. It was hard enough making the decision to come over and play. I am glad I did and making use of the opportunity is a pleasing feeling.”

Holder was part of the West Indies squad that played a historic Test series in England, marking the resumption of international cricket following the enforced break due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Holder had spoken about the difficulties of being in a bio-bubble for months but when the SRH call came, the West Indies star was ready to lap up the opportunity.

Holder had not managed more than 2 wickets overall in the three previous stints in the IPL but the West Indies all-rounder picked up 3 wickets in his very first match for SRH in IPL 2020. Having won a crunch game against RR by a big margin, SRH will be confident as their play-offs hopes have been revived.

Brian Ortega dominates Korean Zombie at UFC Fight Island 6 to land title shot

In the fourth of its five-event stint on Fight Island, the UFC saw Brian Ortega dominate Korean Zombie (Chan Sung Jung) to earn a featherweight title shot.

Jessica Andrade may very well have punched her own ticket to a championship challenge in the flyweight division with her win over Katlyn Chookagian in the co-main event.

Brian Ortega puts on striking display to best Korean Zombie

After a short feeling out process, it was clear that Ortega was looking to employ his improved striking against Jung. He frequently landed leg kicks from the opening bell, as Jung was more intent on hanging back, looking for powerful counter shots.

Ortega stepped it up in the latter half of the first round, cracking Jung with hard punches and even sending him to the canvas at one point. Jung started swinging harder, but got caught with a head kick.

Round one was definitely a strong opener for Ortega.

Jung started quickly in the second frame, landing lots of punch combinations. The damage he was stealthily doing to Ortega’s lead leg with low kicks was also beginning to show.

But just as the momentum seemed to be in Jung’s favor, Ortega blasted him with a spinning elbow. Ortega stormed him, landing several more punches and put him on the canvas but couldn’t find the finish before the second round horn, although he stole the round.

Going into the third frame likely having won the first two, Ortega stayed at distance throughout the round, adding to his advantage. He remained out of Jung’s power range, slowly chipping away with an ever-more-effective jab and kicks that were keeping Jung from finding a rhythm.

Knowing he had to be down on the scorecards, Jung started pressing more in the fourth round. Ortega, however, didn’t let himself get overwhelmed, remained calm, and fended off the better part of Jung’s attacks.

Avoiding most of Jung’s punches, Ortega caught a kick and landed a punch as he drove Jung across the cage and to the canvas. He opened a cut over Jung’s left eye, though it wasn’t clear if it was the punch or an accidental clash of heads, but Jung quickly got up, eating another shot as he did. 

Ortega continued to look sharp, stinging Jung with his jab. Jung tried to find a way to land, but Ortega was so fluid at this point, Jung couldn’t find any openings.

Jung needed to overwhelm Ortega in the final frame, but he couldn’t. Ortega simply kept beating him to the punch and giving him different looks that kept Jung off kilter. Any time Jung moved forward to attack, Ortega nullified him with stinging punches, his jab in particular eating him alive.

Not one to give up, Jung kept moving forward, kept trying to find a home for that powerful blow that would steal the fight, but it wasn’t to be. Ortega was too elusive, his
