“Czech Republic women's national lacrosse team coach joins Maine Maritime.”

Will Mraz was named the Maine Maritime Academy Head Women's Lacrosse Coach on Wednesday. "It is truly an honor to be named the Head Coach for the Maine Maritime Women's Lacrosse program," said Mraz.

Syracuse is talking about getting their strength of schedule up in the coming years.

Orange coach John Desko said at media day earlier this week that his program is examining the importance of adding a few more non-conference heavyweights to its schedule.

"That's something we've talked about over the summer, we'll be talking about this year, as far as do we need to change our schedule going forward a little bit, adding a couple more tigers on the schedule,'' Desko said.

The re-assessment comes after SU felt it got a little jilted in last year's NCAA Tournament seeding.

What’s Up, Philly?

You can no longer sit on the walls on Rittenhouse Square in Philly.

Sitting on the walls is now banned in Rittenhouse Square.

The perching prohibition went into effect Thursday, confusing - but not stopping - about a dozen people who gathered to enjoy the park on the unseasonably warm January day. Four signs had been installed in the interior of the park along with several new no-smoking signs, aimed at what neighbors have called a chronic problem of marijuana use.

The Department of Parks and Recreation authorized the new rule and the signs' installation in conjunction with police and the Friends of Rittenhouse Square group.

The city directed questions about fines or penalties to police, who did not immediately return requests for comment.

I really can't wait for Facebook to go the way of Myspace: Does Facebook want to read your thoughts? Secretive division may be developing a mind-reading device.

Facebook wants to know your deepest, darkest thoughts. In April, the site revealed the existence of a new division, known only as 'Building 8' which is dedicated to creating ground-breaking products at the intersection of hardware, software, and content.

And a new job advert posting suggests that the mysterious division could be working on mind-reading technology.

Smart people don’t multi-task.
