Welcome to World Tuna Day!

Tuna fishes are an indispensable part of various cultures and cuisines. They are an important ingredient for some incredible fish recipes. From Indian recipes to western preparations, tuna fishes end up as the star of the platter of each non-vegetarian spread. But the dwindling numbers of their species is becoming a matter of concern.
Tuna fish have been eaten by people for millennia. However, we have only recently discovered the decline in the fish population. It is essential to make sure to pick economical fishing habits to guarantee that we keep the fish population stable.

In December 2016, the UN General Assembly announced World Tuna Day to be observed every year. The inaugural festivity of World Tuna Day occurred in May 2017. From that point forward, each year, World Tuna Day is celebrated on May 2.

The decision was made to raise awareness about the essence of Tuna fish and their dwindling numbers in the waters. The day aims to educate people about how their population is exhausting because of unregulated fishing techniques and unfortunate conservation management.

The Mailbox takes one week off and look at what happens.

Syracuse loses another player to the transfer portal in 7-foot-2 freshman William Patterson, but picks up a key piece in Jaquan Carlos, a 6-foot point guard from Hofstra.

Carlos is the third player that Syracuse coach Adrian Autry and his staff have added to the roster through the transfer portal. Carlos joins 6-foot-7 forward Jyare Davis of Delaware and 6-foot-11 center Eddie Lampkin Jr. of Colorado.

This week’s Mailbox starts off with questions about the additions of Carlos and Davis along with the departure of Patterson.

Q: I get the situation. It is just impossible to land Power 5 conference transfers without having playing time and NIL money to offer. But I’m struggling with Syracuse getting kids from Hofstra and Delaware.

Are we closer to being a mid-major than a Power 5 school?

David D.

I can see why some Syracuse fans might be a little under-whelmed at the Orange’s recent signings of transfers Jyare Davis from Delaware and Jaquan Carlos from Hofstra. Both of those schools are in the Coastal (formerly Colonial) Athletic Association.

But, in my opinion, this is a perfect example of fans being laser-focused on their own team and not really stepping back to see the entire college basketball landscape.

Over the past few years since the introduction of the transfer portal and the changes to NIL rules, we have seen dozens of players transfer from mid- and low-major schools and have a tremendous impact at the Power 5 level.

Syracuse basketball, amid new offers, may be shifting who are 2025 4-star priorities (itlh; Adler)

Based on staff changes and other factors, it's possible that Syracuse basketball coaches are changing - or better yet, evolving - their recruiting emphasis among various high school prospects in the 2025 class.

To date, based on media reports and recruiting services, the 'Cuse staff has offered more than 20 players in the high school junior class. Some of these prospects have picked other college squads. Some of these prospects do not appear interested in the Orange at this time. And it's certainly possible that 'Cuse coaches aren't heavily recruiting some of these prospects these days.

Dating back to last August, numerous 2025 players have visited the Hill, either officially or unofficially. Some additional 2025 prospects could end up visiting Syracuse basketball in the future. And at the time of this writing, in recent weeks and days, the Orange staff has doled out at least four new scholarship offers among high school juniors.

Sorting out which 2025 players are currently priority recruits for Syracuse basketball.

•Here are some of the 2025 prospects who have visited the 'Cuse at least once since last August:
Four-star shooting guard Kiyan Anthony from New York City
Four-star point guard Nigel James from New York state
Four-star combo guard Derek Dixon from Washington, D.C.
Four-star power forward/center Matthew Gilhool from Philadephia
Four-star forward Sadiq White Jr. from Charlotte, N.C.
Four-star point guard Tyler Jackson from Baltimore
Four-star small forward London Jemison from Connecticut

•Here are 2025 players who recently received offers from the Orange staff:
Four-star guard Acaden Lewis from Washington, D.C.
Four-star small forward Shon Abaev from Florida
Four-star shooting guard Dante Allen from Florida
Three-star power forward/center Asher Elson from New York City

•Additionally, recent reports suggest that Syracuse basketball is recruiting four-star forward Cam Ward from Maryland hard

Syracuse basketball into mix for 4-star SG Dante Allen, state champ who crushed EYBL (itlh; Adler)

Syracuse basketball has officially entered the recruitment of 2025 four-star shooting guard Dante Allen from Florida, a top-100 national prospect who won a state title this past season and absolutely crushed things on the AAU circuit last weekend.

The 6-foot-4 Allen disclosed his new scholarship offer from the Orange coaching staff via a post on his Instagram page.

Allen is a standout junior at the Riviera Preparatory School in Miami. In grassroots basketball this spring and summer, he is competing for the 17U team of the Miami-based Nightrydas Elite in Nike’s EYBL league.

Last weekend, the EYBL held its first official session in Memphis, Tenn. While there, the Nightrydas Elite went 3-0, and Allen received high marks from national analysts and scouts for his performances.

By the way, a star for the Nightrydas Elite in its 16U division is 2026 five-star guard/small forward Alex Constanza, who holds an offer from the 'Cuse and shines for the Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Taking a closer look at new Syracuse basketball target Dante Allen, a 2025 four-star guard.

According to recruiting services, beyond the Orange, Allen's offer sheet includes squads such as Michigan, Villanova, Memphis, Miami, Florida Gulf Coast, UCF, LSU, Illinois, Creighton and Georgetown.

Former Syracuse basketball players and 4-star recruit in portal; might ‘Cuse pursue? (itlh; Adler)

As the current transfer-portal window was set to close on May 1, Syracuse basketball appears to have 10 scholarship players on its 2024-25 roster, with three open scholarships still available.

I've suggested that additional areas of need for the Orange coaching staff this off-season could entail bringing on board an additional point guard, a 3-point specialist and a power forward/center to provide more depth in the front-court.

Now, while college players who intend to transfer have to be in the portal by May 1, their recruitments could carry on for a while. I don't necessarily think that the 'Cuse will have 13 players on scholarship for the upcoming campaign, but I could envision the Orange staff bringing on board one or two more players.

To that end, two former Syracuse basketball players are in the transfer portal, along with a former four-star recruiting target. Might 'Cuse coaches pursue any of these guys? We'll have to wait and see.

Former Syracuse basketball players and a former 4-star recruit are in the portal.

The players I'm referring to here are Seton Hall senior guard Kadary Richmond, Georgia senior center Frank Anselem-Ibe and Kansas State junior wing Arthur Kaluma.

Axe: What do SU football and basketball still need from the portal? (podcast) (PS; podcast; Axe)

The deadline for student-athletes to enter their names into the transfer portal in college football and basketball has passed.

So now that everyone is in the portal that wants to be, what positions do Syracuse football and basketball still need to address?

Brent Axe and Mike Waters discuss that on the latest episode of Syracuse Sports.

For football, Syracuse met with an intriguing option for backup quarterback last weekend. Brent tells you about him and the other positions of need for SU football.

(NOTE: This podcast was recorded just before Christian Veilleux committed to Georgia State so he’s no longer on Syracuse’s radar, but the concept of the type of quarterback SU is looking for still applies. We also wanted to note that he visited and that Syracuse is still on the hunt for a backup QB).

Mike Waters joins Brent to discuss SU basketball’s potential wish list for the portal, including guards Kadary Richmond and Ken Davis Jr. and if SU would be OK if it stood pat with the roster it has now.

Syracuse Basketball Had 7 Players Enter the Transfer Portal - Maliq Brown is the BIGGEST LOSS (youtube; podcast; Locked on Syracuse)

Syracuse Basketball had seven players enter the NCAA Transfer Portal: Maliq Brown, Quadir Copeland, Benny Williams, Justin Taylor, Peter Carey, Mounir Hima, and William Patterson. Which player was the biggest loss for Adrian Autry's squad?

Men’s basketball transfer portal and the ACC: Every team, every player who’s come or gone, plus their destinations (PS; $; Ditota)

The Division I basketball portal closed at midnight Wednesday.

It brought differing measures of joy and heartache across the ACC.

And it’s not over yet.

Players can no longer enter the portal, but they can commit to their new programs up until classes start at those schools. And names will be added to the list since it can take a couple days for players to clear transfer paperwork at their schools.

Here’s the ACC transfer list, compiled through various sources. It will be updated whenever new information surfaces. Please let us know if a name is missing or incorrect.

Onondaga Historical Association spotlights a history of Syracuse memorabilia (DO; Stepansky)

A uniform set and megaphone from the 1909 Syracuse University crew team are at the forefront of an Onondaga Historical Association exhibit. A few steps to the right, and you’ll find a complete kit for a team that also has Syracuse across its chest, this one 114 years older — the Syracuse Mets 2023 uniform set.

“Sports are such an important component of the community and the generational passing down of team loyalties and the memories,” said Robert Searing, an OHA curator of history and the exhibit’s sole creator.

The OHA’s new exhibit, “Suit Up! A Look at Syracuse Sporting Uniforms Through the Years,” opened in March 2024. Flooded with sporting memorabilia, the displays feature mementos from the collections of Syracuse professional teams like the Crunch and Mets. The exhibit brings together Syracuse sports fans and museum-goers on an adventure through the history of sports uniforms.

Along with professional sports teams’ artifacts, SU sports teams are represented, making the collection the premier location for SU sports nostalgia, Searing said.

Searing, who received an M.A. and Master of Philosophy in American History from SU, has worked for the OHA for seven years. In addition to his work at the downtown Syracuse OHA location, he’s worked on projects like the Regional Aviation History Museum at Syracuse Hancock International Airport and the Brewseum at Heritage Hill — both part of OHA.

As an avid sports fan, the idea for the exhibit emerged from his love for collegiate and professional sports at Syracuse. Searing said he brought together lots of artifacts to tell the story of the sports community.

A Syracuse sporting uniform collection must feature SU memorabilia. Searing said he reached out to SU Athletics but didn’t hear anything back. So, he turned to the personal collector’s market along with the OHA’s collections.

Both a home and away jersey from the 1963 men’s basketball team, which featured Jim Boeheim and Dave Bing, are on display. The jerseys belong to center Chuck Richards, who played for Syracuse from 1963-65.



Former “Saturday Night Live” star Vanessa Bayer visits Beck Farms in Freeville, N.Y., for the new Roku Channel series "Dairy Diaries."Video still

‘SNL’ star visits Central NY farm for new TV show ‘Dairy Diaries’ (PS; $; Herbert)

Former “Saturday Night Live” star Vanessa Bayer visited a Central New York dairy farm for a new TV series exploring the journey of milk from farm to fridge.

“Dairy Diaries” is a five-episode documentary series on the Roku Channel featuring Beck Farms, a fourth-generation dairy farm in the Tompkins County village of Freeville. Bayer hosts the show, getting first-hand experience of what life is like on a farm.

“As someone who consumes more dairy, and specifically cheese, than I’d like to admit, I wanted to learn about how milk gets from the farm to the store,” Bayer said in a statement. “I was particularly interested to hear how the industry is working to become more sustainable because obviously, we all gotta get moo-ving in that department! While I didn’t get as much free ice cream as I had hoped, I learned a lot, and I think the audience will as well.”

At Beck Farms, located about 10 miles outside of Ithaca, owner Tyler Beck showcases closed-loop circular processes like using cows’ manure to grow their feed on-farm, reducing carbon emissions and helping with sustainability. According to the American Dairy Association, the environmental impact of producing a gallon of milk has shrunk significantly, requiring 30% less water, 21% less land, and a 19% smaller carbon footprint than it did in 2007.

Wells College’s closing comes after more than a decade of money struggles (PS; $; Moriarty)

Wells College’s announcement on Monday that it will close at the end of its academic year came as a shock to students and the tiny Cayuga County village of Aurora.

But financial records show the difficult decision by its Board of Trustees to shut down the small liberal arts college came after at least 15 years of struggling to pay the bills.

As early as 2010, the college sought and won permission from state officials to borrow millions of dollars from its own alumni donations to pay for daily operations.

Still, over the years, enrollment -- the key revenue stream for colleges like Wells -- kept dropping. As the Covid pandemic hit, the federal government sent more money, a move that kept the school on the shores of Cayuga Lake on life support.

In the end, that last burst only delayed the financial reality: Simply put, the college ran out of students and money, a | The Post-Standard review of the school’s financial records shows.

In the last decade, the small school’s enrollment dropped by more than a third, to fewer than 400 students. During its final years, Wells also faced losing accreditation. Despite a cry for more donations and exploring other academic tracts, the money ran out in 2022.

College President Jonathan Gibralter and Board of Trustees Chair Marie Chapman Carroll broke the news to students and the community on Monday with an announcement that Wells will close for good at the end of the academic year.

“As trustees, we have a fiduciary responsibility to the institution; we have determined after a thorough review that the College does not have adequate financial resources to continue,” they said in a message on the college’s website. “As you may be aware, many small colleges like Wells have faced enormous financial challenges.”

Wells is the second small, liberal arts college within an hour of Syracuse to close in the past year. Cazenovia College, a small, liberal arts college in Madison County, shut down last year.

It’s part of a national trend, especially among small colleges. In New York, 13 colleges have closed since 2016, and two more, including Wells, are set to close this year, according to the state Education Department.

Driving the closures, experts say, is the nation’s shrinking population of college-age students, and a movement away from liberal arts education and toward colleges offering degrees that can more easily translate into good-paying jobs.

Wells, founded in 1868 on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake, saw its student enrollment fall 35% from 550 in 2015 to 357 in 2023, according to the state Education Department. The drop occurred despite the college’s decision to switch from being an all-women school to accepting men into its ranks starting in 2005.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and Upstate NY native Duane Eddy dies (PS; AP)

Duane Eddy, a pioneering guitar hero whose reverberating electric sound on instrumentals such as “Rebel Rouser” and “Peter Gunn” helped put the twang in early rock ‘n’ roll and influenced George Harrison, Bruce Springsteen and countless other musicians, has died at age 86.

Eddy died of cancer Tuesday at the Williamson Health hospital in Franklin, Tennessee, according to his wife, Deed Abbate.

With his raucous rhythms, and backing hollers and hand claps, Eddy — a native of Corning, New York — sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and mastered a distinctive sound based on the premise that a guitar’s bass strings sounded better on tape than the high ones.

“I had a distinctive sound that people could recognize and I stuck pretty much with that. I’m not one of the best technical players by any means; I just sell the best,” he told The Associated Press in a 1986 interview. “A lot of guys are more skillful than I am with the guitar. A lot of it is over my head. But some of it is not what I want to hear out of the guitar.”

“Twang” defined Eddy’s sound from his first album, “Have Twangy Guitar Will Travel,” to his 1993 box set, “Twang Thang: The Duane Eddy Anthology.”

“It’s a silly name for a nonsilly thing,” Eddy told the AP in 1993. “But it has haunted me for 35 years now, so it’s almost like sentimental value — if nothing else.”

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

Eddy and producer Lee Hazlewood helped create the “Twang” sound in the 1950s, a sound Hazlewood later adapt to his production of Nancy Sinatra’s 1960s smash “These Boots Are Made for Walkin.’” Eddy had a five-year commercial peak from 1958-63. He said in 1993 he took his 1970 hit “Freight Train” as a clue to slow down.
