Great post about the 7 Flames organization helping to grow the game in South Dakota.

About 80 years ago, it was illegal for the indigenous people to play lacrosse – a sport they invented. Now lacrosse is big in some regions of the country. It’s Hall’s mission to make South Dakota one of those regions. He's doing that with his 7 Flames program and camp. "I think it's really exciting because it introduces it to not only myself but everyone else that's here," said Pearl Cano, 7 Flames lacrosse player.” "Imagine one of these kids coming from South Dakota and going to a big time program and someone looks at the roster and goes 'wait, wait, wait now,'” said Hall.” Because everyone is used to the East Coast."

A special guest stopped by this year as well.

This year's camp marked the first time a division one coach has worked with players in South Dakota. Lars Tiffany, the Head Coach at the University of Virginia spoke about growing up playing sports in upstate New York with his friends from the Onondaga Tribe. "I'm playing football, basketball, even a little bit of baseball, with my Native American friends,” said Tiffany. “And the games were fun. We enjoyed our time together. The season would end and we'd move on. But during the lacrosse games there was something different. There was something more meaningful. You could feel it in the parents, in the sidelines, and certainly could see it in the eyes of my friends, my Native friends." "It's really cool. It's a really big opportunity to show him what I have — and everybody else, what they have," said 7 Flames player Joel Walker. Lacrosse has come a long way. And in South Dakota, the elders that once played in secret are seeing the sport continue to grow. "And so now that they see their great grandchildren, or great–great grandchildren playing, they're like 'wow this is amazing,'" said Hall.

Carl Haas has been named the new head coach of Alvernia University’s men’s lacrosse team.

Alvernia University has announced the hiring of Carl Haas as their next head coach of the men's lacrosse program. "Carl's experience rebuilding and starting the programs at St. Vincent and DePauw, respectively, jumped off his resume as did his experience as the top assistant at Roanoke - one of the best programs in Division III," said Director of Athletics, Bill Stiles. Haas comes to Alvernia having most recently served as the first assistant at Ohio Northern University. "I am very excited to be part of the Alvernia University family," said Haas. "I truly enjoyed my time at ONU and I want to thank Coach St. Laurent for the opportunity to be part of his great program the past year. I wish to thank Mr. Stiles and the search committee for giving me this opportunity and look forward to helping the Golden Wolves take the next step as a program."

Next stop the Olympics?

At various points throughout 1976 and 1994, ABC, NBC and CBS had its first go at televising the NCAA championship game. Then in 2000, ESPN stepped in, beginning to air just three lacrosse games and two Major League Lacrosse contests. In 2015, fans’ excitement heightened when the sport entered another power five conference as the inaugural Big Ten men’s lacrosse tournament was aired on the Big Ten Network. Fast forward to the summer of 2017 and fans worldwide were able to watch the FIL Rathbones Women’s World Cup on the BBC Network, and just one week later, can view the history-making World Games lacrosse tournament on the Olympic Channel. The International Olympic Committee launched the Internet television service in August of 2016 in conjunction with the closing of the 2016 Summer Olympics. The most recent campaign on its website, sponsored by the channel’s founding partner Bridgestone, a company that specializes in rubber products like tires, encourages athletes around the world to “chase your dream.” “No one is born an Olympian,” Bridgestone’s home page reads. “Olympians are made, molded from more than just strength and speed, but something else – staying power.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

The new American Dream mall by the Meadowlands in north Jersey is going to be insane.

With a quarter of malls in the United States predicted to close within five years, Canadian developer Triple Five Group is building a giant anti-mall in North Jersey, just outside Manhattan. The much-delayed $5 billion complex, modestly called American Dream, will resemble something straight out of a Walt Disney movie: a jumbo-sized hybrid between a shopping center and amusement park that some see as a model for what top malls are becoming. “The future of malls is that they will have to offer shopping experiences you can’t get anywhere else in the form of food and beverage, unique entertainment opportunities, and exclusive stores,” said JLL’s James Cook, director of retail research for the Americas. “You certainly need something” unique. American Dream meets all the criteria, even if it’s on its third builder and has endured multiple setbacks over more than a decade.

World/National News.

Might wanna hold off on those chicken nuggets for a while.

The disturbing prospect of chlorine-washed chickens from the US going on sale in British shops in a post-Brexit trade deal last week sparked an explosive row at the heart of Government. But beyond the politics lies the story of why American poultry needs such drastic chemical treatment – and of the horrendous conditions at the farms where they are bred and reared. Now whistleblower farmers have revealed the full horror of the suffering to The Mail on Sunday, including how:

Tens of thousands of super-sized 'Frankenstein' birds are crammed in vast warehouses.

The chickens, which weigh up to 9lb, often buckle under their weight and must live without natural sunlight.

Chickens frequently die before they reach maturity and many are left covered in their own faeces, turning warehouses into vile breeding grounds for disease.

Unlike in the UK and Europe, there are no minimum space requirements for breeding chickens in the US. America also does not have any rules governing lighting levels in the sheds and, crucially, its farms have no maximum allowed level of ammonia, which indicates how much urine and faecal matter is present. This means there is no limit on how much can fester inside the sheds.
