The event starts at 8:30 p.m. local time and encourages people to turn off as much electricity as they can to bring awareness to renewable energy sources that don't contribute to climate change.

Auriemma guided UConn to the Final Four for the first time in 1991. They were so gracious to let us pick their brains. The news of Auriemma's thoughtful choice in attire quickly reached the Bobcats across the country in Northern California, where they play top-seeded SC on Saturday in the Stockton Regional.
The fullback was taken down by Neil Taylor, whose bad tackle caused the injury and earned the Welshman a red card. Gareth Bale will not be a great player until he leaves Cristiano Ronaldo and the Real Madrid forward's "gigantic ego", according to Republic of Ireland legend Johnny Giles.
It was November 12, 2013, and the Badgers held the then-freshman Hill to 2-for-11 shooting in a 59-53 victory. Now the NCAA's winningest program will play another of basketball's titans Sunday in top-seeded North Carolina with a trip to yet another Final Four on the line.
Boeser is fresh off two very successful years at the University of North Dakota....and, man, do we mean fresh! He was a first-round pick of the Canucks, 23rd overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The goal gave Vancouver a 4-2 win over the Wild at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul with plenty of family in attendance. Boucher scored a power-play goal 19 seconds into the second period, gathering a rebound in the slot and wrapping it around a crowd of players and past Kuemper.
Unlike Odor though, there are no indications that a deal is close in this instance. Not sure if the Rangers blinked or if Odor was willing to come down on his ask, but it sounds like a deal could be announced shortly. In such agreements, the team gets a good deal on a 20-something star and the player gets immediate financial security. The lefty-swinging second baseman definitely has plenty of power (just ask Jose Bautista), though his plate skills - 135 strikeouts against only 19 walks a ...
I applauded the teams that make deep runs in the tournament and the upperclassmen back courts that get them there. Now, the Ducks will get another chance to play for a Final Four bid, fending off Michigan's March Madness to remember by coming up with some of their own magic to show that one unfortunate injury right before the tournament wasn't going to be enough to end what's been one of the best seasons in OR history.
That's what Team USA didn't understand. In Japan, the opening-round games were the highest-rated programming in the entire country. The World Baseball Classic Championship Game was the largest ever US audience for a Spanish language telecast of a baseball game with 761,000 viewers on ESPN Deportes and a simulcast on ESPN2.
India's first ever left-arm wrist spinner in Test cricket, Kuldeep bamboozled Australian batsmen in a terrific post-lunch spell, accounting for David Warner (56), Peter Handscomb (8) and Glenn Maxwell (8). "I'm not really bothered if we are the favourites or underdogs to be honest with you", Smith said at the Himachal PradeshCricket Association Stadium, in India's Himalayan foothills, which hosts its first test match from Saturday.
The FBI has reportedly obtained information suggesting that aides of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to coordinate the release of information to damage Hillary Clinton's campaign. While it may be too early to say definitively that collusion took place, this new information proves that collusion between the White House and Russian operatives before the election is the focus of the FBI's investigation.
This was normal, expected, planned. "I had to take that one". But just as he'd known the shot that saved his team's season was good, Showalter also knew the one that ended his college career was good. "I'm not going to lie to you, the shot Showalter hit was extremely deflating", White told CBS Sports. "Last year, obviously we hit the one against Xavier to put us ahead, tale of two stories, that's what we got here".
I just pushed my guy out of the way and got the rebound". "It's hard", OR leading scorer Dillon Brooks said, "because none of us none of us have been to a Final Four". "(I have a) ton of respect (for Oregon)", Kansas coach Bill Self said. "I'm getting old, and you don't know how many years you have left and you have to be lucky.
With a 84-83 win over No. 8 seed Wisconsin, No. 4 seed Florida is back in the Elite Eight, set to face SEC foe SC for a spot in the Final Four on Sunday in Madison Square Garden. I like Wisconsin in this match-up. "Maybe it's motivation, maybe it's not". KeVaughn Allen carried Florida most of the way, breaking out of a slump with a career-high 35 points.
I love it here. Alford cited UCLA's highly rated 2017 signing class, which is second in ESPN's team recruiting rankings, and a new practice facility as reasons for why he wants to stay at the school. IN continues its search for a head coach after firing Tom Crean earlier in the month. "I don't have somebody in the bag", Glass said, later adding "we don't have a wink and nod from somebody".
Coach Tony Granato said earlier this week that if Kunin felt he was ready for pro hockey, then he should go. "He came back, gave us everything he had and now he's ready for that next challenge". Wisconsin sophomore captain Luke Kunin signed his professional tender with the Minnesota Wild and will depart the Badgers after two seasons, reports the Wisconsin State Journal's Todd Milewski and other media outlets.
He prized out his maiden wicket when David Warner chose to play back to full ball only to nick it behind to captain Ajinkya Rahane. Steve Smith scored his twentieth Test hundred as the visitors were bowled out for 300 on day one of the fourth test .
The 38-year old Miller has always been a hot commodity on the coaching market because of his success with the Flyers. Miller is a great hire for Indiana. Miller worked as the lead assistant for Darrin Horn at Western Kentucky and also worked as an assistant at Ohio State and Arizona. The move comes less than 24 hours after UCLA coach Steve Alford said he wouldn't take the job and nine days after Tom Crean was sacked after nine seasons.
Australia had only one over at India before stumps - a maiden bowled by spearhead Josh Hazlewood who found significant pace and carry - and Wade liked what he saw from the towering fast bowler. Although Wanre is not a chinaman, the only difference between him and Kuldeep is that the former bowles with the right arm while the latter does it with his left.
Florida's junior guard provided the most memorable moment of this year's tournament, one already etched in Florida's proud history. "Thank goodness we didn't have a timeout, right?" That's swagger on a hundred thousand million. And while his opponent blows past him on the top of the key, his only move is to throw his body in front - a textbook blocking foul. His last three charity shots gave Florida a 34-32 lead at intermission, Allen led all scorers with 15 points at that juncture and the ...
I like to see things very positively. But in the first practice sessions of a new season - particularly under new regulations like these - it's especially important to achieve that and also to leave the auto intact for Saturday. "Both felt from testing that the G-Forces are enormous and they are embracing the new challenge". Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel expects his '17-edition Ferrari to be the fastest vehicle he's driven.
Vice-president Jordi Cardoner said the club had asked the Barcelona city hall to rename one of the streets adjacent to the stadium after the Dutchman. Arguably, Cruyff laid the foundations of the modern Barcelona and is credited by many football pundits to have revolutionised the game of football.
Now it sounds like the Texans could be the only team that Romo will play for in 2017. Darlington points out what many have suspected, and it's a very complicating issue for Dallas. "Tony's not retiring. Tony's not retiring". "I know his body looks like maybe he's not". This dude can play any sport and play it great. Losing Romo will be tough for the team's fans and ownership to swallow, but they will likely want Romo's $ 14 million of salary cap space to be invested in other areas besides ...
Lior Refaelov scored a consolation goal for the visitors in the 76th minute in Sporting Gijon's El Molinon Stadium. Martin O'Neill's men will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start in Group D and extend their lead at the top of the table as they host the Euro 2016 semi-finalists, who have drawn their last three qualifying games.

Ricciardo's Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen was best of the rest in fifth, ahead of Haas driver Romain Grosjean.
The Knicks next play tonight against the San Antonio Spurs. Noah, who has been out since a February knee surgery, cooperated fully with the league's investigation. His suspension would carry over to the first 10 games of next season. The 32-year old Noah signed a huge contract with the Knicks this offseason, agreeing to a four-year, $72 million deal.
Daniel Ricciardo says he feels no additional pressure on the eve of the Australian Grand Prix despite the hopes of a nation once again resting on his shoulders. I don't know yet. Verstappen admits Mercedes and Ferrari are on another level to Red Bull and says a good start is his best chance of improving on fifth in Sunday's race.
Hamilton's latest one-lap triumph marked the 62nd pole of his career, which leaves him only three behind Ayrton Senna and six adrift of Michael Schumacher in the all-time list. "Myself, I didn't quite get any really flawless laps in, so not that satisfied". As Vettel says, there is a lot of racing to be done before the final race of the season at the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 26.
Really happy though, our Target team has been fantastic to start the season and to get a pole is great. "We made it through, but by the time we got through and got strapped in and got the auto ready to go on the track, we just ran out of time".
Mourners - including Irish President Michael D Higgins - packed the tiny church which overlooks the stadium and Ryan's family home just outside the football grounds. "The club management, the team, the supporters, all have been caught up in his natural footballing ability; in his courageous play". Flowers in the hearse said "Captain" and recreated his number 5 jersey, while one group of supporters carried a banner with a photograph of him in full flight.
But Bryant had only words of admiration for O'Neal, who joined the Lakers in 1996 and won National Basketball Association titles with the club in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Instead, the Lakers gave the "Shaq" $120 million for a seven-year contract that yielded three NBA championships and three NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Awards.
The fifth spot in the Suns' single-game scoring rankings is shared by two former big men. The second-year guard also had eight rebounds and five assists. Booker finished 21-of-40 shooting overall. Little did they know that during the game, Melvin's son was going to make history. 27 years to the day after Chambers lit up the city of Phoenix, someone six years from being born on Chambers' big night dethroned him from the top spot.
Wehrlein, 22, battled a back injury during pre-season, leading to him missing some of testing. Who will win the 2017 F1 world title? "I explained the situation to the team last night". "After the second set of tyres I was a little bit in front of Marcus, I tried to push more and I made a mistake at Turn 15". "I'm really happy for that, and obviously for Italy to have back one Italian driver, it's really important for them".
Follow all the action of Day 1 from 3pm (AEDT) here on The Roar . But Umesh Yadav gave India the first breakthrough in the second over of the match when he castled Matt Renshaw with a brilliant inswinger. Glenn Maxwell, who scored a century in Ranchi, tried to hit Kuldeep out of the attack but India's debutant was in no mood to be intimidated and got his man with an unplayable googly.
Aside from the obvious benefits of the Florida buzzer beater (namely, victory and a date with underdog SC in Sunday's Elite Eight), Chiozza's shot also erased a potential controversy, sending its memory into the sports ether, never to be thought of again.
