Tyler Onesty Memorial Fundraiser Fights Addiction

first_imgBy MADDY VITALETyler Jay Onesty would have turned 26 on Sunday. The Ocean City High School graduate died of a heroin overdose in 2017. In his memory, and in an effort to help others battle addiction, the third Memorial Scholarship Fund Benefit in his name was held.Tyler’s brother, 22-year-old Zach, and parents Sally and Marte Onesty, of Ocean City, welcomed friends, family members, employees of mental health and drug treatment services and people in recovery, who lined up at Golden Galleon Mini Golf at 11th Street and the Boardwalk to spend a day enjoying Tyler’s favorite pastime – miniature golf.“I feel like we are keeping Tyler’s memory alive and we are helping make an impact on other people who suffer from disease and addiction,” Zach explained.All of the proceeds of the event go toward scholarships for current and future Ocean City High School students who have been affected by drug addiction in some way and are furthering their education at the college level or at a trade school. Donations also go toward providing transportation to detox or rehab facilities.Over the last two years, the benefit has raised $6,000. Sally Onesty said the fundraiser would not be possible without the support of Playland’s Castaway Cove owner, Scott Simpson, who donates the golf course for the event each year. People wait to go inside Golden Galleon Mini Golf at Playland’s Castaway Cove for the benefit.“This year we hope to raise $5,000,” Sally noted. “This is the first year where we have really good weather. If we double the number of people here, then we can double the number of people for scholarships.”Since losing her oldest son, Sally has made it her priority to speak about the opioid crisis throughout Cape May County and the nation. The goal is to save as many lives as she can by offering ways to get people the help they need.It could be as simple as paying for an Uber to take a person to drug treatment or pay for the first week of sober living.Monica DiGesu, a recovery support specialist for Serenity Estates, a Hansen Foundation sober living facility, said she was happy to attend the fundraiser.“We always try to support local fundraisers to help people with treatment,” DiGesu said. Nikki Axler, of Ventnor, is in drug treatment. She played a round of mini golf with friends. “It’s for a  good cause,” she said.Marte Onesty said the day that Tyler died, they discovered his last phone messages were helping others with their troubles with addiction.“He just couldn’t help himself,” he said of his son. “It is good to be able to help kids with recovery or with education in Tyler’s memory.”John McKernan, of Ocean City, displays a tattoo he got in memory of his close friend, Tyler Onesty.One of Tyler’s best friends, John McKernan, 26, of Ocean City, works for the city in the Department of Public Works. He only had an hour to spend at the benefit. But he said he would not miss it for the world.“It feels good to be here. It is a great event that draws a lot of people,” McKernan said. “Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Tyler. He was my best friend. We hung out every day.”McKernan said Tyler had so many great qualities. He even has a tattoo in honor of his friend on his right arm.The benefit helps keep Tyler’s memory alive, but event or no event, he will always be remembered by those who knew him, McKernan noted.“He would do anything to help people,” McKernan said. “He was a charismatic, awesome kid to be around. ” For those who could not attend the fundraiser but would still like to make a donation, send it to C/O Tyler Jay Onesty Scholarship Fund, Sturdy Bank, 661 Asbury Ave., Ocean City, N.J. 08226.Nikki Axler, of Ventnor, sizes up her mini golf shot during the fundraiser.

first_imgLast night, Widespread Panic closed out their sixth annual Panic En La Playa in Riviera Maya, Mexico. With the band decidedly not touring in 2017, their choice to entertain fans in festival and residency settings might just make for a better experience all around. The shores of the resort were graced with the southern rockers in rare form, welcoming special guests throughout their entire performance.Half way through the first set, the band welcomed George Porter Jr. (bass), Karl Denson (saxophone), Erik Krasno (guitar) for their own “Sell, Sell,” adding Ivan Neville (keys & vocals) consecutively to Bill Wither‘s “Use Me” and “Red Hot Mama.” Thanks to Mrtopdogger, you can watch “Sell, Sell” below:The funk-tinged rock and roll continued in the second set with Danny Hutchens (vocals) and Eric Carter (guitar) for “Henry Parsons Died” and “Can’t Get High.” The band returned to their roots for the middle chunk of their second set, rocking through a monstrous “Surprise Valley” > “Ride Me High” > “Surprise Valley” sandwich that jammed straight into an “Airplane” > “Takeoff Jam” > “You Should Be Glad” jam – sticking with the “Space Wrangler” theme of the evening.”Time Is Free” brought out Col. Bruce Hampton on guitar and vocals, before veering toward the end of their set with another rare “Time Waits For No One,” which hadn’t been played in 202 shows.

Muslims wonder what’s ahead

first_img A Q&A with Ali Asani about the worldwide erosion of pluralism when it comes to respecting beliefs Battling religious illiteracy <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UA287fc0jk” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/1UA287fc0jk/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> Related The Harvard Muslim Law Students Association (MLSA) is using the #yourvoicematters campaign as a platform to reach out to Muslim-American youth. Courtesy of MLSA“There’s a whole science behind de-escalating versus escalating,” Rosenthal said. “People really do feel marginalized and wishing they could be invisible. It’s very important for those of us who are not Muslim to advocate on their behalf.”Asani said he believes that the University needs to embrace its role as a “moderating voice” counter to those of society’s extremists. He said Harvard’s Islamic Studies Program is planning events this spring to explore Islamophobia and other concerns.Asani believes that the rise of Islamophobia can be traced to religious illiteracy, an ignorance of other faiths and cultures that permits a one-dimensional view of human beings whose identities are rich and complex, influenced by gender, education, background, profession, and even hobbies.“It leads to viewing human beings through one lens. It strips them of their humanity,” Asani said. “Illiteracy becomes a danger for the project of democracy. Democracy can’t function if you’re afraid of your neighbors.”Rosenthal said meeting the challenge to one part of the Harvard community is a task that should be taken up by all.“What’s really important for the University is to recognize this is not a problem for our Muslim community to solve; this is a problem for us all to solve,” Rosenthal said. “This is similar to other challenges that cause us to ask, ‘Are we an inclusive, diverse place?’” When he was in school on Long Island, N.Y., Yaseen Eldik was just another kid. Then 9/11’s hijacked jets crashed into the twin towers, and life changed for the American-born Muslim.“I was called a terrorist and asked if my parents belonged to al-Qaida,” Eldik said. “Because of that experience — of feeling almost like an enemy of my community — I began to feel isolated.”In the wake of the November Paris attacks, the shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., and an incessant anti-Muslim drumbeat from some U.S. presidential contenders, Eldik and other members of the Harvard Islamic community described what it’s like to live under the current wave of “Islamophobia” in America, one that Harvard Islamic Chaplain Taymullah Abdur-Rahman said has reversed years of healing since the 2001 calamities.“There was some healing from 9/11 to now. It’s more rewarding for people to trust you than to like you,” Abdur-Rahman said. “Paris shook the campus up …. Then San Bernardino happened. There was a retreat on [the part] of Muslims.”Eldik recalls his own response to the hostility and fear he encountered after 9/11: He withdrew, something that today he thinks was a mistake. That’s why he and three other Muslim law students got together earlier this month and made a video, released online last week by the Harvard Muslim Law Students Association. The video urges Muslim youth not to hide if they encounter anti-Islamic sentiment, but to engage, share their experiences, and speak out.“My protective instinct was to be a recluse. Don’t do that. You can be both Muslim and American,” Eldik said. “[The video seeks] to legitimize the fear that Muslim youth feel in America because of the Islamophobic sentiment.”The video, which had 1,000 views within days of its YouTube and Facebook release, is aimed at Muslim youth across the country, but also may resonate on the Harvard campus.“We’ve reached this situation where things are very, very tense, and obviously will affect students here,” said Ali Asani, professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic religion and cultures and director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program. “It’s created this feeling of discomfort, this fear [on campus]. Every day you hear more and more.”“We’ve reached this situation where things are very, very tense, and obviously will affect students here,” said Ali Asani, professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic religion and cultures and director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program. Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff PhotographerEldik and Abdur-Rahman said the campus community largely has been supportive, though Asani said there have been incidents here. He heard of a case where a hijab-wearing student was called “brainwashed” by a non-Muslim classmate. In addition, Abdur-Rahman said, several Muslim students have called him, expressing anxiety, fear, and difficulty concentrating on end-of-term projects and exams.“They have had some trauma, and professors have been gracious,” Abdur-Rahman said. “I think they should keep in mind [that] this is their country as well. They should mourn [for the dead in the San Bernardino shootings], as the rest of us mourn. Mourning is part of healing. Secondarily, don’t feel guilty. You didn’t do anything wrong.”With members of the Harvard community finishing their studies for this semester, Harvard President Drew Faust said the year-end break should be a time for reflection about the importance of religious diversity to the community and, specifically, about the struggles faced by members of Harvard’s Muslim community.“As we approach the new year, and as we look forward to time for rest and reflection amid a turbulent time in the world, I hope we can keep in mind our community’s enduring commitment to religious diversity and to welcoming and respecting people of different faiths,” Faust said. “I would like especially to express support and reassurance to the valued Muslim members of our community who, in a variety of settings, have recently had occasion to worry about the breadth and strength of that commitment in the larger society. Their concerns remind us of the important work we must do every day to engage with one another in a humane spirit of mutual respect and to assure that every member of our community feels a sense of belonging.”Danoff Dean of Harvard College Rakesh Khurana said it’s important to understand how tightly bound people are to each other and to strive to create a tolerant and supportive community on campus.“As I look ahead to 2016, I hope that we recognize that no matter what each of us believes, we are inextricably connected to one another,” Khurana said. “We must resist those who fear difference and encourage intolerance. We must redouble our efforts to create a truly inclusive community and to embrace the Muslim members of our community during these difficult times.“I have faith that education can be a strong antidote to bigotry and intolerance. Education should enable us to question our own certainties about how to understand and live in the world. And education should open our minds to the ways that our differences create the conditions for infinite possibilities. Education gives us the humility to see each other with gentler eyes and accept both our differences and what we have in common.”Eldik said he has felt supported while on campus, with several people expressing sympathy and concern that he must deal with anti-Islamic sentiment. Yet with Harvard integrated into its surrounding communities, the fear and discomfort of the broader society is not far away. “When I leave Harvard, it can’t protect me if someone sees me and feels threatened,” Eldik said.A student at the Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health experienced that recently while on the way to work at a Kendall Square biotech company, according to Meredith Rosenthal, the School’s associate dean for diversity and professor of health economics and policy.Rosenthal said the student, who preferred not to be identified, was dressed professionally and riding on the subway. Someone accused her of having a bomb in her bag, and a group of men surrounded her, the student said. She showed them her Harvard ID and opened the bag, which ended the encounter. The incident itself was distressing, Rosenthal said, adding that it was also upsetting that no bystanders spoke up in her defense.The episode sparked a community meeting at the Harvard Chan School, at which Asani and Abdur-Rahman spoke. Abdur-Rahman said he had expected a crowd of just 20 or so, but many more turned out, with standing room only inside the room and people spilling out into the hallway.The crowd was of many races, religions, and ethnic groups, Abdur-Rahman said, but seemed to have one question in mind.“The No. 1 question [was], ‘What can we do to help you?’” Abdur-Rahman said.Since then, Rosenthal said she has gotten several emails from students asking how, in essence, to be a good bystander. In response, the School is planning “bystander training” in January or February, at which people can learn the best ways to prevent a situation from escalating, to support Muslim community members, and to step in when needed without jeopardizing their own safety.A voice for American Muslim youthlast_img read more

PREMIUMGovt to install solar panels on roofs of 800 public buildings this year

first_imgLinkedin Topics : Facebook The government plans to install rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on at least 800 public buildings across the country this year as it steps up its renewable energy push to lessen reliance on fossil fuels.The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry has allocated Rp 175 billion (US$12.76 million) to install the solar PV panels on, among others, boarding schools, clinics, orphanages, government offices and police stations in 17 provinces. All of the buildings are owned by regional administrations, which are to cover the panels’ maintenance costs.“We need to show these administrations that solar panels are worth it,” the program’s head, Puspa Dewi, who is also the energy ministry’s renewables infrastructure director, said in Jakarta on Wednesday.She said the allocated funds would not include the cost of the batteries for the PV panels because of b… LOG INDon’t have an account?

North Korea’s Kim ordered to pay damages to Seoul prisoners of war

first_imgA South Korean court ordered Pyongyang’s leader Kim Jong Un to compensate two former prisoners of war who spent decades as forced laborers in the North, in a move that could set a far-reaching legal precedent on the divided peninsula.The ruling was the first time a South Korean court claimed jurisdiction over Pyongyang or issued a compensation order against its leader, according to a campaign group backing the plaintiffs.The two men — one surnamed Han, 87, and the other Ro, 90 — say they were captured during the 1950-53 Korean War, but were never repatriated after the armistice that brought hostilities to a close. Instead, they say they were forced to work at coal mines and other facilities for decades until they escaped the North via China. Ro returned to the South in 2000, and Han a year later.They filed the suit in 2016, saying they had suffered “enormous mental and physical damage” in the North.The Seoul Central District Court on Tuesday ordered the North and leader Kim to pay each of them 21 million won ($17,500), a court spokeswoman told AFP.Following the ruling, a civic group supporting the two said they would take legal steps to seize North Korean assets under Seoul’s control, such as copyright fees for Pyongyang’s state TV. Topics :center_img By the end of the war, there were 170,000 North Korean and Chinese prisoners in the US-led UN forces’ POW camps, while 100,000 South Korean and UN troops were held in the North, according to data by the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul.Pyongyang repatriated only 8,343 South Koreans after the armistice, according to the Seoul government.The South has since raised the issue many times, but the North maintained no former soldiers from the South were being held against their will.Civic groups say some 80 South Korean POWs escaped the North and returned to the South in 2000 and 2001.Lawyers representing the two men welcomed the ruling, saying a South Korean court for the first time “exercised jurisdiction” against “illegal acts committed by Kim Jong Un”.”This is a milestone ruling,” said lawyer Koo Chung-seo, adding it paved the way for further legal action by other individuals against Kim and his regime.Inter-Korean relations have been in a deep freeze following the collapse of a summit in Hanoi between Kim and US President Donald Trump early last year over what the nuclear-armed North would be willing to give up in exchange for a loosening of sanctions.last_img read more

ASMR: how brands are selling the sound of food

first_imgBut what started as a way for fans to focus, fall asleep or even combat anxiety is now making a foray into the realm of fmcg.It’s a logical progression. After all, ASMR sounds are already everywhere in the world of food and drink. Just think of a Coca-Cola fizzing softly as it is poured into a glass of tinkling ice cubes, or the oozing and bubbling of the food in those famous M&S ads. Spotting this potential, more and more companies are now capitalising on the craze as a way to market their brands. There are various ways that food goes hand in hand with ASMR. Such as videos that rank food on its AMSR credentials. “The taste isn’t the real factor, it’s the ASMR of the biscuit,” says Angel, who hosts a snack review series on her channel called Biscuits of Britain & Beyond. “If I don’t particularly like the taste but it has a really good-sounding wrapper, it would actually score higher overall.”Then there are ASMR cooking videos, with channels such as Emojoie Cuisine also becoming increasingly popular. One of the channel’s most-watched videos (currently at seven million views) is of a New York cheesecake being made, laden with the satisfying sounds of biscuits being crushed, tin foil being rustled and creamy ingredients beaten together.“The best way to describe ASMR is that it’s like positive goosebumps”And it’s not just sound. The internet is awash with ASMR videos that provide visually satisfying shots of fmcg-related goods, such as mirror-glazed cakes and even Crocs sandals full of shaving foam.Within each of these approaches, brands are emerging on-screen too. For example, in one series of ASMR recipe videos by YouTube channel The Vegan Corner, the likes of Alpro yoghurt, Tiptree jam, Morrisons own-label breadcrumbs, Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference wild mushrooms and Jus-Rol pastry can all be seen.One brand capitalising on the trend in a big way is Fuze Tea, which last year approached top UK ASMRtist Emma Smith, aka WhispersRed, to collaborate on a pop-up event in London’s Soho.The ASMR Experience Rooms were an immersive event, part of Fuze Tea’s ‘Calm the Commute’ campaign, which encouraged visitors to take some time to relax via ASMR. “[The brand] sits really well with ASMR as we’re about meditation practices and being calm and less anxious,” says Smith, whose YouTube channel has more than 700k subscribers and just shy of 200 million total views.Since the event in November last year, WhispersRed has featured a Fuze Tea-sponsored video on her channel and hosted an ASMR podcast for the brand in which she interviewed celebrities, including model Daisy Lowe, rapper Professor Green and Radio 1’s Clara Amfo.Full screen in popup Source: ReeseReeseIn May, Canadian confectioner Reese launched a feature-length ASMR-style film, titled ‘Reese Ritual’. Featuring five top ASMRtists, it highlights the sensory experience of eating a Reese cup, says the brand.The five steps of the ‘ritual’ include interacting with the packaging, opening the packaging, sliding out the cup, unwrapping the cup and, finally, indulging in the cup, it says.

The copy reads: ‘Try not to hear this.’ 1/7 show caption This report is part of our three-part influencer series where we’re diving beyond the polished surface of influencer marketing to look at some weird and wonderful new ways brands can connect with consumers. Other reports include a community who love to watch people eat and the too good to be true world of CGI influencers.,Do you experience a tingling sensation in your scalp when someone whispers? Or a feeling of calm as paper is crinkled? If so the chances are you’re receptive to ASMR, or automated sensory meridian response. A term coined in 2010, it describes those people – thought to number in the millions – that experience pleasurable sensations or relaxation in response to certain visual or auditory triggers.It might sound a niche trend, but there are now millions of videos uploaded to YouTube and Instagram aimed at those receptive to ASMR, watched by tens of millions of viewers. In these videos, some of which go on for up to four hours, hosts create sounds into binaural microphones: whispering, running their fingers along toothbrushes and eating foods, in order to create a surround-sound effect that allows viewers to immerse themselves and experience a more intense response.“The best way to describe ASMR is that it’s like positive goosebumps,” says “ASMRtist” and YouTuber Charlotte Angel – better known to her 100,000-plus subscribers as ASMR Angel. “There are thousands upon thousands of triggers out there and each person experiences it a little bit differently.” Source: Fuze Tea Source: Fuze Tea Emma Smith interviews rapper Professor Green for Fuze Tea’s Mind Tingles podcastSource: Fuze Tea Next Source: KFCKFCIn January, KFC launched a series of ASMR audio based on its menu. The KFChill series included three separate tracks – relax, unwind and de-stress – featuring the sounds of frying chicken, simmering gravy and falling fries.Created as a way to promote its new Gravy Mega Box, KFC encouraged listeners to ‘free your mind and immerse yourself in the actual sounds of the KFC Gravy Mega Box’. Source: Fuze Tea Source: IkeaIkeaIn 2017, Ikea launched its ‘Oddly Ikea’ campaign, for which it created six ASMR videos.With a whispering narrator, the ads feature tactile student essentials, such as bedsheets being stroked, pillows squished and hangers delicately jangled.It was a huge hit, with more than 2.5 million views on YouTube. During the campaign, Ikea said it saw a 4.5% increase in sales in store and a 5.1% increase online. Other brands take a more straightforward approach, including ASMR content in their traditional advertising. A notable example is US beer brand Michelob Ultra, which aired an ad in the style of an ASMR video during last year’s Super Bowl. It featured actress Zoë Kravitz whispering into binaural mics as she tapped on a glass bottle of beer, before twisting off the cap and pouring it into a glass with a fizz. The ad has since received almost 17 million views on YouTube.There are boundaries to mixing advertising with ASMR though. For instance, when it comes to advertising through their own channels, ASMRtists like Smith and Angel agree any partnerships must be carefully thought through as viewers could be “more susceptible” to advertising in their relaxed state. “I’m not there to indoctrinate anybody and I’m not there to sell things to people,” says Smith. For that reason, Smith turned down an opportunity to work with a wine company – “because alcohol’s linked with anxiety and that’s what I fight against” – and Angel ruled out approaches from cheap clothing brands due to her views on ‘fast fashion’ and its environmental impact. But Smith – a passionate vegan – says she’d be “quite happy” to feature advertising for products that share her ethos, such as cruelty-free make-up.All partnerships must be “mutually beneficial,” sums up Smith. “It’s great to work with brands with ASMR but it has to enhance the ASMR experience in some way,” she says. Although she doesn’t see a direct spike in views as a result of events such as this, Smith believes that “in the long run they are really good for ASMR”, because they raise awareness of the community.That community is now growing phenomenally fast. A quick search brings up just shy of 91 million ASMR videos, with top ASMRtists boasting half a million and more subscribers. It’s clear that for digitally savvy food and drink brands that can get to grips with the trend, it’s a channel with more than a whisper of potential.Five brands that have incorporated ASMR into their advertising Source: LynxLynxLynx jumped on the ASMR brand bandwagon in February with the launch of its Shower & Shave video tutorials.The three videos, with the tagline ‘Feel as Smooth as it Sounds,’ feature a whispering man talking viewers through how to shave different areas of their body. He rustles his robe into the microphone, trims his chest hair, lathers Lynx shaving gel and finally runs the razor through the foam.

ALE loads out Yuri Korchagin satelite platform topside

first_imgHeavy-lift specialist ALE has completed the load-out of satellite platform (SP) topside for Lukoil’s Yuri Korchagin oil field in the Caspian Sea.ALE said on Friday that it was contracted to perform the engineering, weighing, jacking, load-out, and offshore pulling operations of the satellite platform topside, as well as the mooring and ballast supervision for the project in Astrakhan.The first stage of the project started in November 2017 and involved jacking of the topside to 1.5m, and weighing of the topside so the client could integrate skid beams in between the topside and the desk-support frame underneath. The company said that the topside was weighed at 3,200 tonnes.In December, ALE performed the mooring and pulling operations using four SJ600 strand jacks and two 300t capacity breakout jacks to load-out the topside onto the transport barge in just one day.David Le Masurier, project engineer for ALE Offshore Services, said: “As the desk-support frame had to incorporate the offshore skidways, leading to a large transverse center of gravity, it made the structure more challenging to control during the ballasting operations. By utilizing our in-house-designed strand jack monitoring software and the barge’s internal ballast monitoring, we were able to overcome and correct any deviation of the structure.”ALE said that the next phase would involve the offshore skidding of the topside on the substructure during the floatover operations in the Caspian Sea, expected to start in 2018.The Yuri Korchagin field is an offshore oil field located 180 kilometers from Astrakhan and 240 kilometers from Makhachkala at a sea depth of 11–13 meters.In 1999, Lukoil started exploratory drilling at the field using the Astra jack-up rig. Production at the field was launched in April 2010. Yuri Korchagin and Vladimir Filanovsky fields in the Caspian Sea, both operated by Lukoil, hit 10 million tonnes of combined produced oil in June this year.last_img read more

Mullins aims for World domination

first_img The list is headed by Nick Williams’ Reve De Sivola and the Nicky Henderson-trained Oscar Whisky, while the latter’s stablemate Oscara Dara could also take part. Paul Nicholls is favouring the race for Coral Cup favourite Wonderful Charm, who was a hugely impressive winner on his British debut in the Persian War Novices’ Hurdle at Chepstow in October. Speaking in his Betfair column, the trainer said: “We have given it a lot of thought and if the ground stays dry from Monday onwards, it is now highly likely – but not definite – that Wonderful Charm will take his chance in the World Hurdle. “I think the horse could just be up to running a big race. We just don’t know how good he is, as he hasn’t been able to tell us on the racecourse yet. My instincts tell me he is very good.” Eleven horses have stood their ground for the Ryanair Chase and they include Sizing Europe, although Henry de Bromhead has an alternative in the Queen Mother Champion Chase. The Mouse Morris-trained First Lieutenant is another potentially strong contender from Ireland, if he takes up the engagement instead of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The home team is headed by Cue Card, who is heading for the race as Colin Tizzard in keen to avoid Sprinter Sacre. The trainer said: “He’s in brilliant form. He’ll stay in the Champion Chase in case something went wrong with Sprinter Sacre.” Willie Mullins has five horses among 18 confirmed for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at Cheltenham next week. Ireland’s champion trainer has left in Back In Focus, Fiveforthree, So Young, Zaidpour and Quevega, although the latter is on course to tackle the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle earlier in the week. Also among the confirmations are the Charles Byrnes-trained Solwhit and Tony Martin’s smart nine-year-old Bog Warrior. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Crane 17-0-58-0, J. Root 1-0-4-0. By Nick MulvenneySYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) – Australia captain Steve Smith continued to be England’s Ashes nemesis yesterday as he passed 6 000 Test runs in an unbeaten knock of 44 to help his team to 193 for two at close of play on the second day of the fifth Test.The world’s top-ranked batsman and Usman Khawaja batted through the final session in a 107-run partnership after openers Cameron Bancroft and David Warner had departed earlier in Australia’s reply to England’s 346.Khawaja notched a stylish 91 not out on the same ground where he made his Test debut in the corresponding fixture seven years ago but it was the wicket of Smith that England most desperately wanted.They were to be disappointed with only a couple of half chances presenting themselves as Smith sent a couple of early edges fizzing through the slips.The 28-year-old was soon looking comfortable and nonchalantly swatted a single to backward square to pass the 6 000 career runs mark in his 111th Test innings. Only the great Donald Bradman reached the milestone in fewer knocks.Having started the day with a brilliant diving catch in the slips to dismiss Dawid Malan, Smith walked off his home ground in the brilliant afternoon sunshine with 648 runs to his name in the series so far.“We’re stoked that he’s on our team so we don’t have to bowl at him,” Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins said of his captain.“You lose a couple of wickets and he comes out to bat. He’s just incredible; I think he’s been the real difference between the two sides.”The tourists, 3-0 down in the series with the urn already relinquished, earlier posted a competitive tally in the face of some fearsome pace bowling on the back of a hard wagging tail and some poor Australian catching.PACKED HOUSE Australia came out after lunch to begin their innings in front of another packed house only for Stuart Broad to clean bowl Bancroft for a duck in the second over.Warner scored a measured 56 by his standards in a 85-run stand with Khawaja before he was caught behind when James Anderson got the ball to move away from him.Broad’s 31 had earlier been integral to a bright morning for the tourists after the hammer blow of losing two wickets in the last couple of overs of day one.Malan (62) lasted less than half an hour after they had resumed on 233 for five, Mitchell Starc eliciting an outside edge which Smith caught brilliantly to make some amends for three spills in his otherwise impeccable series.His fast bowlers then proceeded to produce a couple of howlers with Cummins dropping Tom Curran on 21 off Nathan Lyon and, in the next over, Josh Hazlewood letting Moeen Ali off the hook with the all-rounder on 22.England’s tail made the most of the reprieves with Curran hitting a confident 39 and Moeen 30 before both fell victim to the pace of Cummins (4-80).Broad braved the short bowling almost until the scheduled lunch break before becoming spinner Lyon’s first victim of the match and the innings ended in a mix-up that resulted in Mason Crane being run-out for four in his maiden Test innings.The leg-spinner later made a reasonably solid start to his Test career with the ball, returning figures of 0-58.“It’s awesome to be bowling to the best players in the world,” the 20-year-old said.“(Smith)’s a key player for them, if we can get him and two or three others, hopefully we can get a first-innings lead.”last_img read more

Legendary Oakland Raiders owner, SU alumnus Davis passes away at age 82

first_imgAl Davis, member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, owner of the Oakland Raiders and a 1950 graduate of Syracuse University, died Saturday. He was 82. The Raiders said he died at his home in Oakland, Calif. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed. Before Davis made his legacy in helping shape pro football as the outspoken owner of the Raiders, he played junior varsity football, basketball and baseball at SU while pursuing an English degree. Throughout the years, Davis was a quiet supporter of Syracuse football. He donated money for new locker facilities for SU athletes, according to a 1992 article in The Post-Standard. ‘We have lost a Syracuse legend and pioneer with the passing of Al Davis. We are all deeply saddened,’ SU Athletics Director Daryl Gross said in a statement. ‘His impact on the NFL is unmatched and was obvious. His standard for excellence has been copied by many. We will miss his communication with us and his love for Syracuse. We will memorialize his legacy, as he will never be forgotten in the Syracuse community.’ Davis’ passion for football was evident at Syracuse when he went to varsity practices and spent every Saturday at the top of Hendricks Hill watching the team play in Archbold Stadium. Davis took notes on each play the Orangemen ran and then compared them to head coach Ben Schwartzwalder’s after the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text It served as an introduction to coaching in football for Davis, who would go on to coach at a variety of college programs and professional franchises before finally landing in Oakland as the head coach and general manager of the Raiders in 1963. In 48 years as a coach, general manager and owner of the Raiders, Davis led the franchise to 28 winnings seasons and three Super Bowls in the 1970s and 1980s. He built the Raiders into a winner, stressing his famous mottos ‘Commitment to Excellence’ and ‘Just win, baby!’ ‘The Oakland Raiders are deeply saddened by the passing of Al Davis,’ the team said in a statement Saturday. ‘Al Davis was unique — a maverick, a giant among giants, a true legend among legends, the brightest star among stars, a hero, a mentor, a friend.’ In addition to leading the Raiders to success, Davis served as the commissioner of the American Football League in 1966 and played a key role in the NFL-AFL merger. He aggressively pursued NFL players to jump to the AFL, which helped the leagues combine in 1970 to form the modern-day NFL. ‘Al Davis’s passion for football and his influence on the game were extraordinary. He defined the Raiders and contributed to pro football at every level,’ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. ‘The respect he commanded was evident in the way that people listened carefully every time he spoke. He is a true legend of the game whose impact and legacy will forever be part of the NFL.’ After graduating from SU, Davis landed his first coaching job as the offensive line coach at Adelphi College in 1950. Davis would later work as an assistant coach for the Baltimore Colts and as the offensive line coach at The Citadel for two seasons and at Southern California for three seasons. In 1960, Davis returned to professional football, this time as offensive end coach for the Los Angeles Chargers, a new AFL franchise. After three seasons with the Chargers, Davis became the youngest head coach and general manager in professional football when the Raiders hired him at age 33. It was the start of a legendary career as the leader of the Raiders that culminated in Davis’ induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1992. Though Davis will be largely known as the face of the Raiders, he will be remembered as a classmate and friend by those who attended SU with him. Gordon Hensley, a 1951 SU graduate who played football, was good friends with Davis during their college years. Hensley knew Davis before his rise to fame as a fearless owner, and he saw a different side of him. ‘As tough as he seemed on the outside, which I think was on purpose, he was just a very nice individual on the inside, very charitable and very caring,’ Hensley said Sunday. ‘So I think that was Al as far as I’m concerned.’ [email protected] Published on October 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected] Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Mirror, mirror, two matching teams traded score after score at Staples Center on Sunday, before the Clippers’ Lou Williams eventually proved the fairest of them all, putting away the Brooklyn Nets, 119-116, with a fadeaway 3-pointer from 28 feet out as time expired.Williams’ first official buzzer-beater and the longest such game-winning shot in the NBA this season,  had him surfing on his teammates arms after he slow-walked to the corner of the court and gestured to the crowd in a rare celebration.His big shot also lifted the Clippers to their the seventh win in their past eight games, and their 10th in 13. The Clippers (41-30) remain eighth in the Western Conference standings, behind the 40-29 Utah Jazz.Williams’ heroics gave Doc Rivers his 300th victory as the Clippers’ head coach, which both ensured that he’ll have a winning season for the 12th consecutive year and made him only the seventh NBA coach to have won 300-plus regular season games with two or more teams, per the Elias Sports Bureau.Related Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The Clippers — who rallied back from a 15-point deficit in their November win in Brooklyn — got things to click in the second quarter, when they rode a 33-9 second-quarter surge, which was made possible entirely by 13 points by Danilo Gallinari, 12 by Montrezl Harrell and eight by Landry Shamet. They turned what was a 19-point deficit with 7:21 to go into a 60-55 lead going into halftime.It turned out to be the Clippers’ largest comeback at home this season.They increased their advantage to 11 to start the second half, but after that Brooklyn (36-36)  showed some bounceback of its own, pulling ahead 82-77 on a hook shot by D’Angelo Russell, who had a a game-high 32 points.But back came the Clippers. Williams’ 3-pointer tied it 87-87 entering the final quarter, when they quickly went on a 14-4 run to make it 101-91.Then, despite trailing by 10 with a minute left, the Nets tied it up 116-116 on Jarrett Allen’s dunk with 5.3 seconds left.But Gallinari handed off the ball to Williams near midcourt and he drained the 3-pointer to seal the victory.“I just shot the ball, honestly,” said Williams, who finished with a team-high 25 points off the bench. “Just get a shot at the rim.”The talk in the locker room afterward was heavy on what Williams did after the shot.“I get made fun of that I don’t know how to celebrate,” Williams said.. “My teammates say I don’t know how to celebrate, they say I don’t show enough emotion. So I stole that one from (Montrezl Harrell).”Said Harrell: “I give it a 3.”Added Patrick Beverley: “Hit the gamer and had the weakest celebration.”Shai Gilgeous-Alexander recorded his first career double-double, scoring in double figures for the eighth time in nine games with 14 points and established a new career high with 14 assists.Gallinari had his fifth double-double of the season, with 17 points and 10 rebounds in 16 first-half minutes. He finished with 20 points and a season-high-tying 11 rebounds.Harrell had 20 points, Shamet had 14 and Beverley chipped in with 10. “I had no idea,” Rivers said. “It’s nice. However, it’s not what I’m here for. I want to win four games (in a Finals). That’s what I’m here for.”The milestone victory came against a spirited squad that reminded Rivers plenty of his current team.“We mirror each other,” Rivers said. “When you look at the two teams; they have (Spencer) Dinwiddie, we have Lou (off the bench). They have a ton of just good players, we play hard. The two teams are so similar. Watching it, you kept saying, ‘It’s a mirror.’ Two teams that are really exactly the same in a lot of ways, so it’s nice to get the win.”The Clippers’ pseudo-clones were, however, playing the second installment of a back-to-back that had them in Utah last night, where the Nets lost, 114-98.But it was the Clippers who looked flat early, finishing the first quarter down 30-23 after shooting 9 for 26 (34 percent) from the floor and committing five early turnovers.

NHL free agency 2019: Canadiens go big, sign Hurricanes’ Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

first_imgThe deal, according to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, is heavily frontloaded, paying Aho $21 million in the first year and contains the maximum signing bonus allowed. For Aho, this is the contract he will officially get, regardless if it’s with Carolina or Montreal; he has already inked the offer sheet.”I know my summer just got better because I’m not going to be negotiating a contract all summer,” Waddell said during a press conference, where he noted he thought the offer would have been more. “We make a decision and move on.”The Canadiens have announced that they have tendered an offer sheet to restricted free agent Sebastian Aho of the Carolina Hurricanes. The proposed contract is for five years, with an average annual value of $8.454 million.#GoHabsGo— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) July 1, 2019The move by Montreal did not come as a shock; after all, they created space by moving veteran Andrew Shaw back to Chicago and Nicolas Deslauriers to Ducks on Saturday.”Sebastian Aho accepted our offer,” said Bergevin to reporters. “He wants to come to Montreal. He sees our youngsters coming up in the organization and he wants to be a part of that. We’re proud but there’s still a waiting period.” Don Waddell has been adamant that the Carolina Hurricanes would match any offer sheet given to restricted free agent Sebastian Aho — Well, Don, now the ball, er, puck, is in your court.On the afternoon of July 1, the Montreal Canadiens went big and offered a five-year, $42.27 million contract to the young superstar. Carolina has a week to determine if Marc Bergevin and the Canadiens will go home emptyhanded. “We all get along, but we all have a competitive edge. I’m responsible for the Montreal Canadiens and not other teams. I owe it to the Canadiens and Geoff Molson.” – Marc Bergevin on his relationship with other GMs#GoHabsGo— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) July 1, 2019Aho is coming off a season that saw the 2015 second-round pick net 83 points (30 goals, 53 assists) in 82 games. He skated in his first All-Star Game in January in San Jose. In 15 playoff games, he led Carolina with five goals and seven assists.The offer sheet is the first in the NHL since the Calgary Flames tried to snatch Ryan O’Reilly from Colorado back in 2013. It’s been 12 years since an offer sheet was not matched. In 2007, the Oilers acquired Dustin Penner from the Anaheim Ducks. That move led to then-Ducks GM Brian Burke having some choice words for Edmonton’s boss Kevin Lowe.”Edmonton has offered a mostly inflated salary for a player, and I think it’s an act of desperation for a general manager who is fighting to keep his job,” he said.last_img read more

How Messi and Xavi delighted the People of Travnik?

first_imgMessi? Maybe I could try with Messi? – Jasmina Fajkić, a 28-year-old woman from Travnik, was thinking one afternoon late last year, coming up with a plan to raise as much money as possible for the Pediatric Ward of the Health Center in her town.Although she had no idea how to reach the famous player of Barcelona and officially the best football player in the world, she still decided to try.“Having Messi’s shirt, football boots or anything else at an auction sounded irrational, but still real. I contacted a friend, humanitarian Enrico Moristo who lives in Spain, and he told me he will contact the management of Barcelona. To be honest, I did not believe in success at that time, but already after several days I was notified that Leo Messi is sending his shirt-signed,” said Jasmina.“Only a couple of days after I came up with that idea, I was going to meet Morista, to take over the shirt. I thought it would be a simple bag, but it was a big box with a nicely wrapped Messi’s shirt on which he wrote: May this serve as much as possible. I took it home and told my mum to take good care of it, to stay home and keep her eyes on the shirt,” Jasmina said, laughing.This gave her a stimulus to contact other athletes and make auction of their equipment. Since she did not know any athletes personally, she tracked them via social networks.“Blanka Vlašić sent me her running shoes right away. Edin DŽeko also contacted me among the first athletes, when I first published the campaign. He sent his shirt, since he always supports all actions, but he also asked whether he can help in any other way,” Jasmina recalled.Jasmine used some little tricks on her way. For example, she reached the football player of Real Madrid Mateo Kovačić through his girlfriend, whom she found on Instagram.“By looking at the posts, I realized that Izabel A. is his girlfriend, so I sent her a message. She read it and, unbelievably, I had Mateo’s shirt in a couple of days,” Jasmina said about her first campaign which she completed entirely by herself.The B&H national team player Izet Hajrović donated a signed shirt and 2,000 BAM, of which she was supposed to allocate 1,000 BAM for the Pediatric Ward and asked to donate the other 1,000 BAM to one of several poor families she regularly supports.When Jasmina published information about her campaign in media, one reader who works in Qatar contacted her and offered to get in touch with another star from Barcelona – Xavi Hernandez. The signed Xavi’s dress soon completed the auction collection.Except for the mentioned shirts and sports footwear, the auction collection was complemented by the equipment of the best B&H tennis player Damir Dćumhur, the national basketball team of B&H, the FC Liverpool, Miralem Pjanić, Josip Kvesić, Ervin Zukanović, Krste Velkoski, Adnan Zahirović, Amer Bekić, Elmedin Kikanović, Senjamin Burić, Toni Šunjić, Edin Višća, Armin Hodžić, Avdija Vršarević, Elvedin Varupa…Jasmine got the most money for Messi’s shirt (3,100 BAM-1,550 EUR) and for Xavi’s shirt (1,000 BAM-500 EUR), both bought by the Kuwaiti Carl Saliba.In the end, Jasmina had a total of 14,000 BAM and she donated the entire amount to the Pediatric Ward where she has been working as an activist for three years, helping the patients to overcome disease and worries about getting money for expensive treatments easier.(Source: fokus.ba)last_img read more

It’s one you can debate all day.”Kylian Mbappe scored twice as France beat struggling World Cup hosts Russia 3-1 in Saint Petersburg, with Paul Pogba shaking off his problems at club level by netting a superb free-kick.“We expect a lot from him (Pogba), I ask a lot from him,” said France coach Didier Deschamps of the midfielder who has found himself out of favour under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United in recent weeks.“He was also playing a ‘comeback’ match, because it’s been a while since he played a full game, it’ll do him a lot of good.”Romelu Lukaku grabbed two goals as a strong Belgium side romped to a comfortable 4-0 victory over Saudi Arabia in Brussels, with Michy Batshuayi and Kevin De Bruyne also on target.Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and Schalke forward Breel Embolo were among the scorers for Switzerland in a 6-0 thumping of World Cup debutants Panama in Lucerne.Piotr Zielinski snatched a stoppage-time winner for Poland in a 3-2 victory over South Korea in Chorzow, where goals from Robert Lewandowski and Kamil Grosicki had put the home side in control before quick-fire strikes from Lee Chang-min and Hwang Hee-Cha.Japan lost 2-1 to Ukraine in Liege as Oleksandr Karavaev grabbed the decisive goal after Tomoaki Makino had cancelled out an own goal by team-mate Naomichi UedaShare on: WhatsApp Paris, France | AFP | Isco scored a hat-trick as Spain hammered an Argentina side without Lionel Messi 6-1 in a friendly on Tuesday, while Brazil defeated Germany 1-0 in their first meeting since the 2014 World Cup.Gareth Southgate’s England were denied victory over Italy at Wembley after the visitors were awarded a disputed late penalty in a 1-1 draw following consulation with the video assistant referee.Spain underlined their status as chief contenders at this year’s World Cup in Russia as they extended their unbeaten run under Julen Lopetegui to 18 matches in sensational fashion in Madrid.Diego Costa bravely forced home Spain’s opening goal on 12 minutes and Isco doubled the lead before Nicolas Otamendi halved the deficit prior to half-time.The absence of Messi, left out of the squad by Jorge Sampaoli despite the coach insisting on Monday that his star striker was fit, was telling as Spain dominated the South Americans in the second half.Isco bagged his second on 52 minutes and Thiago Alcantara swiftly added another for the hosts before substitute Iago Aspas struck after latching onto a long downfield pass from David de Gea.last_img read more

United face tough start to 2017 season

first_imgThis coming Saturday sees the start of the 2017 Thai Premier League season with local side Pattaya United visiting Bangkok based BEC Tero Sasana.  Pre-season has seen whole sale changes to the Dolphins squad with only three players still at the club who started the last game of the 2016 season against Korat FC.This transfer activity has seen 20 players join the club while 19 others have departed.  Despite this large movement of players there has been great optimism coming from the squad who have been preparing for 2017 at their training base at Karti Thanee Country ClubPattaya United’s Wellington Priori.Two of the most interesting newcomers are both on loan from SCG Muangthong United.  Left winger Chaiwat Buran and centre midfield Peeradon Chamratsamee optimize the young and talented Thai players that manager Yutthana Thaweesappasuk will have available for selection.The success of the season will depend on how well the foreign signings are able to use their experience to blend the side together.  Those supporters who witnessed the 2015 promotion winning season will not forget the wonderful contributions made by South Korean centre back Lee Won Young, Brazilian midfielder Wellington Priori and Serbian striker Milan Bubalo. With these three player returning to the Pattaya squad for the 2017 season it is understandable why there are positive noises coming out Dolphins Stadium.  However, despite the efforts of Coach Ahn, pre-season results have left a lot of questions unanswered with defeats against Thai Honda Ladkrabang FC and Port FC.  Last weekend’s 3-0 victory at Rayong FC plus other wins against Air Force United FC and Hougang FC show what the squad is capable of though when it gels on the field.The side will do well to better its 2016 position of 12th and much will depend on the start that United make to the new season.  This will not be easy as the opening schedule throws up some difficult challenges.  Following Pattaya’s opening game at BEC they then play highly fancied Chonburi FC at home, followed by a visit to title candidates Buriram United.last_img read more

Sleeping dwarves

first_imgOver the last few years, the offense of the Pittsburgh Steelers has been considered somewhat of a “sleeping giant” especially when it came to basically playing down to their opponents or just plain sleep walking until they were well into the second half. Quick question: What does Monsieur Ben Roethlisberger have in common with Aaron Rodgers, Robert Griffin III, Alex Smith, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, Tom Brady and Russell Wilson? Answer: Absolutely nothing. Why you ask? Because first and foremost, five of the teams that are directed by the aforementioned signal callers will be making some “playoff” dough while Roethlisberger will be out Christmas shopping spending the Steelers dough. Oh, also two of the QBs mentioned are rookies Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson and both of them at least at the time that I wrote this column have the distinct possibility of being invited to the NFLs big dance.Roethlisberger still doesn’t get it. His ego is far, far, bigger than his “enormous” talent. The Steelers need to bring in some younger, less egotistical hungry quarterbacks. In the last two games Roethlisberger has thrown two game ending, game losing picks. Now check out the wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah wah, wah wah, wah, wah syndrome. The following are actual post-game responses from “Big” Ben. [Hey Ben], what were you feeling as you were leaving the field? Ben said, “Disappointment, pain, letting a lot of people down, and it doesn’t feel good.” Kum bah yah, my lord; uh, huh. Tell us what happened on the final interception? He had the audacity to say, “There is nothing to talk about. You saw it, I threw it to them.” Nothing to talk about? The game ending pick that you threw in Dallas still needs some “splainin” and you say there is nothing to talk about?Oh let’s get back to one of my original points of the Black and Gold sleepwalking. Mr. Roethlisberger had this to say. “We have to do better. We have to start moving the ball, and stop getting behind the chains making it hard on ourselves. I have to play better.”Has this boy lost his ever loving mind? After the Steelers play the Browns in a meaningless rubber game for both teams, Ben will be sitting at home on the couch playing video games “getting better.” Another one sentence quote from the Steelers wunderkind was, “they are a good team that played well and we didn’t.”Although the Steelers defense played well, they toed the company line. Safety Ryan Clark was asked this question: “Is it fair when you have a short field all the time when the offense turns the ball over?”“We have no control over how we take the field,” he said.“But we do have control over how we defend it. It’s with all-out effort; it’s with 100 percent tenacity. I think we did that today. I think we went out and we played well. I say it every time we lose but it’s the truth. We needed one more play. We needed not to let them get in field goal range at the end of the fourth. And they did.”Ryan there is no reason that you should hang any of this loss around the necks of the Steelers defense. If Ben Roethlisberger does not throw two picks that the Bengals turned into 10 points, all the Steelers would have had to do this weekend would be to beat the Browns at Heinz Field.Now let’s get to the very, very, very, suspect NFL officiating. What is more heinous than a corrupt police chief? As far as I am concerned, it is the crooked cops that are subordinate to his rule. One of the first questionable calls was the “unsportsmanlike conduct” call on Steelers defensive lineman Brett Kiesel in the first quarter after he sacked Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.Finally, Roethlisberger has been quietly feuding with the Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley. No one seems to mind that Roethlisberger can be arrogant, insolent and insubordinate to Haley, who has remained graceful and classy under the most difficult of circumstances. The Steelers are very lucky to have landed him. I hope that he remains after this season. Trust me, there are many teams that would love to run his “dink and dunk” offense, especially if it meant relieving pressure on a quarterback who holds the ball too long in order to perpetuate, “guts and glory.” Has Roethlisberger taken too many hits over the years that his judgment has become clouded by maybe, just maybe one too many blows to the head? The Steelers had better start a serious youth movement because if they don’t, in forty years they will be celebrating the “Immaculate Interception” and “Immaculate Deception” instead of the sacred ‘Immaculate Reception’.Note: I am saddened to inform all of my readers and listeners that after almost a decade of radio appearances on WCWA Fox Sports Toledo my last appearance was Thursday. Close to ten years ago, I initially appeared on the Troy Neff show as an NFL pregame analyst. When that show was cancelled I was then invited to appear as a regular co-host on the “Odd Couple Sports Show” produced and hosted by one of the former producers of the ‘Troy Neff’ show Adam Ragle. I reported from three Super Bowls, two Thanksgiving Day games and two NFL Pro Bowls. I am forever grateful that Troy Neff, Adam Ragle, Chris Shmidbauer and Fox Sports radio gave me the opportunity to reach thousands of listeners in the Toledo, Ohio and Detroit Michigan markets.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at [email protected] or 412-583-6741.)last_img read more

256 ‘Quarantined’ in Margibi County

first_imgMargibi County Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr. Adolphus Yeiah, has disclosed that about 256 persons have been ‘quarantined’ in Gaygbah and Papa towns, Borlorla Township in Gibi District. At least one person died over the weekend of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD).Dr. Yeiah’s disclosure comes after nearly a month of not a single case recorded.The Liberia News Agency (LINA) Margibi Correspondent, Richard Baysah, quoted Dr. Yeiah as saying that the victim came from the St. Paul Bridge Community in Monrovia over the weekend with the hope of seeking ‘treatment from an herbalist in the Gibi District of an unknown ailment.’Although Dr. Yeiah did not disclose the name of the victim, he however said the deceased was taken to Gaygbah Town, Borlorla Township in Gibi District where he was later confirmed to have died of the Ebola virus. “Margibi County Health Team (CHT) and partners upon hearing news about the incident quickly moved into the town and performed an Ebola test of the victim, which eventually proved positive,” Dr. Yeiah is quoted as saying.Immediately following the test, he, in collaboration with partners, ordered 256 people to be ‘quarantined’ from Gaygbah and Papa towns, as well as those from the nearby towns and villages that came into direct contact with the victim prior to his death.“This latest case where a lady brought her sick husband into Margibi County from the St. Paul Bridge Community is counterproductive. This unwholesome behavior has the propensity to cause the resurgence of the virus,” the Margibi County CMO lamented.The latest development raises a red flag as government prepares to close down certain Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) in Montserrado County. The National Chairman of Case Management of the Incident Management System, Dr. Moses Massaquoi, told the Ministry of Information daily Ebola press briefing on Tuesday that the ETUs slated for closure through the Ministry of Health are MOD 1 and MOD 2 located in Congo Town outside Monrovia.According to Dr. Massaquoi, the two ETUs will bring to three the number of units shut down so far. The Unity Conference Center ETU in Virginia outside Monrovia was the first that was closed down on February 1. The process of decommissioning most of the ETUs became necessary and very safe, “because the Ministry of Health has assigned teams with expertise in the decontamination process to ensure that the ETUs are disinfected at all levels.”Meanwhile, the head of the Incident Management System, Tolbert Nyenswah, has confirmed an outbreak of new Ebola cases, which he says continue to be reported in Montserrado County.Nyenswah then expressed the fear that the new outbreaks could spread to Margibi, Lofa and Bomi counties, because some residents of the affected communities have fled under the cover darkness to those counties.He named the affected communities with the new cases as Zuba Town, Crab Hole and Gbangai Town in the St. Paul Bridge vicinity.According to Nyenswah, some of those who contracted the virus have already left those communities and reportedly migrated to Margibi, Lofa and Bong counties, which “have been declared free from Ebola for some time now.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CDC Tsunami Hits Monrovia

first_imgShortly after Senator George Weah (Montserrado County) accepted the petition statement mandating him to contest for the 2017 presidency by the Congress for Democratic Change’s (CDC) Legislative Caucus, he told the mammoth crowd that he would wage war against the poor standard of education if elected to power.Respond to the petition, Weah, who dropped out of high school in his early years, described the country’s education as substandard, calling it a “national security threat.” He referred to the health sector as disastrous, calling electricity “elusive.”However, Weah now holds a master’s degree from the Arizona-based DeVry University, an online college program for people who want to continue their education.“Under my administration, there will be sufficient budgetary allotment to the education sector so as to meet international standards, as well as invite international experts to come and train teachers,” Weah declared to deafening rounds of applaus from supporters, who defied the scorching sun to grace yesterday’s ceremony.He said he would rebuild the health sector by negotiating with partners in and out of the country, while also promising to revamp the agriculture sector by putting in place agricultural procurement programs for farmers.As for the business community, Weah gave them hope that when he becomes president, he will create an enabling environment for them to employ more Liberians.Meanwhile, Weah, who out-rightly rejected merger talks with any of the political parties, however, called on other political parties to join the CDC in the struggle to end the Unity Party rule. Weah, who is now a first-term Senator for Montserrado County, first ran for president in 2005, coming second to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. He ran again in 2011, this time as vice presidential candidate to Winston Tubman, a lawyer by profession, and again his party finished second to Sirleaf’s Unity Party.As early as 6 a.m. yesterday, residents of several communities around Monrovia woke up to a dramatic crowd of mainly supporters of Weah’s CDC as they trooped to the party’s headquarters in Congo Town, where they petitioned Weah to contest the ensuing 2017 presidential election as a presidential candidate.His partisans, some of them from the Monrovia suburbs of West Point and New Kru Town, were joined by fellow CDCians from the central city and made their way to Congo Town; some walked, while others were crammed in the trunks of vehicles heading in the direction of the party’s headquarters for the ceremony.By 10 a.m., CDC partisans from the eastern end of town in the Paynesville District were also connected to their colleagues from SKD Boulevard, SD Cooper Road and the infamous “Peace Island” Community, jubilating with songs of victory and shouting political slogans they coined as they marched to meet Weah, who was on his way, heavily guarded, from ELWA to respond to the petition.Although Weah’s supporters were peaceful, they chanted anti-government slogans as authorities of the Liberia National Police (LNP) increased their manpower to provide the necessary protection. For his part, CDC national chairman, Nathaniel McGill, told the Voice of America’s (VOA) James Butty that the 10-year administration of President Sirleaf has failed to improve the welfare of Liberians in spite of the enormous international goodwill it has received. As a result, McGill said “marginalized Liberians yearn for change, and they believe Senator Weah can be the vehicle for that change.“Considering that the Unity Party-led government has not done sufficient in the face of the enormous resources it has received, we think there’s a need for change. Liberians believe Senator Weah can be the vehicle for that change. He’s a man who understands their condition, who indeed understands their plight,” he told the VOA.Some analysts have commented that the CDC lost the last two presidential elections because, while the party was popular in urban areas like the capital, Monrovia, it failed to extend its reach to the rural areas.McGill described the assertion as a myth. He said the only political party with national appeal is the CDC. “If we are a Monrovia-based party, how come we pushed this president to the second round in two successive elections? The fact that the government did not win on the first ballot shows we are not a Monrovia-based party. We are a national-based party,” McGill said.He also said the CDC hopes to improve on its errors from the last two elections. “We realize that we needed to improve our ability to man the polls, and in that area we had some lapses. But we’ve improved on that, manning the polls making sure we have strong and vigorous poll monitoring officers. And we are quite sure that this time around there will be no reason to complain, because we will be on top of our game.” Following the first-round of the November 2011 presidential election, the CDC decided to boycott the second-round vote because it felt it had been cheated in the first.A rally of its supporters called by the CDC leadership in support of the party’s plan to boycott the run-off election turned violent when police fired on protesters, killing one and reportedly wounding several.A commission set up by President Sirleaf to investigate the violence recommended, among other things, the dismissal of the Director of Police, Marc Amblard.A number of Liberians have already announced their intentions to contest the 2017 election. They include Liberia’s current Vice President Joseph Boakai of the ruling Unity Party; Charles Brumskine of the opposition Liberty Party, who also ran in the 2005 and 2011 presidential elections; and businessman Benoni Urey, who served as head of the country’s Maritime Affairs during the presidency of Charles Taylor.Others likely to enter the race include Dr. J. Mills Jones, former governor of the Central Bank of Liberia; former Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan, who resigned last year, saying he wanted to be an “active player” in the coming 2017 presidential and legislative elections; and Alexander Cummings, who was recently appointed political leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Police record reduction in reports – Senior Superintendent

first_imgDrug usage in schools…says students caught reluctant to give up drug dealersNine months ago the alarming problem of increased drug usage in schools was a major concern for parents, teachers and other stakeholders, there has been a reduction in reports of incidents of this sort.Police Narcotics Branch Head, Senior Superintendent Kurleigh SimonThis is according to Head of the Police Narcotics Branch, Senior Superintendent Kurleigh Simon, who, during a recent interview with Guyana Times, said that for the past three months there has been a decrease in reports by schools about students engaged in using illicit substances.“They (reports) are down, or there is a drop. We are not getting (many) reports from the schools. Sometimes it is the Education Ministry that will call us, or sometimes the head teachers call us in. So, for the second quarter, as it stands right now, there has been a reduction,” Simon explained.He said that in cases where the schools directly make contact with the Police for assistance or involvement in addressing the use of illegal drugs among their students and/or on their premises, there is a system that has to be followed; since, ideally, the Education Ministry is the agency responsible for notifying the law enforcement agencies in this regard.“This system (direct contact with the Police) is that the teacher has got to be present, (as well as) the parent and the student. Then we look at if (the situation) is one that warrants counselling and so forth…we cannot prosecute any child anymore, so definitely straight counselling. We try to work them to see if they will give up, if an adult is involved, if they will give up the source,” Simon said.ReluctanceSimon said investigators are not always successful in getting the students to divulge relevant information so that they can pursue and eventually nab the guilty adults involved, but some students are helpful when questioned.“Some are reluctant in giving up the names of the persons, but there are some who do cooperate. Some parents of the children who are caught or involved tend to clog up, and there are some who say to their children that they should tell the truth. So, basically, it is some amount of reluctance and some amount of cooperation, and I would say it is about 50/50 from all the cases we have had so far to deal with,” he added.In September 2018, the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) made it public that the use and sale of the drug ecstasy had been discovered in five schools.

Fort St. John Walmart expanding into Supercentre

first_imgAdding an approximate 30,000 square feet to the building, it will balloon to 116,000 square feet once the renovations are done around mid-2014. Spokesperson Felicia Fefer explains that in addition to keeping the departments the store currently has, “fresh” departments will be added, like produce, more dairy, and a deli section. “It’s true one-stop shopping,” she argues. “Supercentres are a favourite format in Canada. I think it just makes sense. It’s really what our customers are looking for.” Walmart, which opened in Fort St. John in 2002, will remain opening during construction.- Advertisement -“We try to be minimally disruptive,” says Fefer. “We’ll move departments, but we never close down. It’s important to be able to provide access to shopping for our customers who trust us to have the items that they want.” Walmart expects both the construction and completed expansion to create jobs in the community.Advertisementlast_img read more

Tevez must earn right to play -Shenhua

first_imgShanghai’s new coach Wu Jingui said earlier this month that the 33-year-old was overweight and would not play again until he shaped up, only to bring him on as a substitute for the derby at Shanghai SIPG days later.Tevez duly scored his third Chinese Super League (CSL) goal this season, but SIPG went on to hammer struggling Shenhua 6-1.He was back on the bench in the next game but on Saturday was not included at all in the 3-1 home win over Guangzhou R&F.That sparked fresh conjecture about Tevez’s future in China, where he has failed to settle off the pitch and missed half the games injured.Shanghai Shenhua spokesman Ma Yue on Monday hit out at media reports suggesting Tevez and Wu — who replaced Gus Poyet when the Uruguayan quit two weeks ago — had fallen out and said communication between the pair was “very smooth”.Tevez “should have already realised, clearly, that he can’t be sure to be included in the starting line-up based on his fame only,” Ma wrote on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter.Ma said the player had brought his own private fitness coach from Argentina to help him get fit and was doing additional training sessions every day.“All of the above is not to make excuses for Tevez, but I just want to say that he hasn’t given up like certain foreign media have said,” wrote Ma.Tevez, who made his name at Boca Juniors in Argentina before moves to Corinthians, West Ham, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus, has struggled to settle in throughout his career.The CSL season ends in November and Tevez has hinted that he would like to return to Argentina and Boca.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Carlos Tevez, among the highest earners in football, has endured a miserable nine months in China and did not feature again at the weekend © AFP/File / Chandan KHANNASHANGHAI, China, Sep 25 – Handsomely paid Carlos Tevez cannot expect to play every game for the Shanghai Shenhua side just because of his famous name, the Chinese team warned on Monday, the latest twist in his turbulent spell with the club.The Argentine, among the highest earners in football on a reported $850,000 a week, has endured a miserable nine months in China and did not feature again at the weekend.last_img read more

Massive cross border Jobs expo launched

first_imgJOBS: A massive cross border Jobs Expo will be held in Donegal next week – which will provide a fantastic opportunity for jobseekers to gain employment across a wide range of different sectors. The Department of Social Protection (DSP), together with the Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP), the EURES IE/NI Crossborder Partnership and the Department for Communities (DfC) in Northern Ireland will host a Jobs Expo in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, Buncrana on Thursday, September 29th from 10.00am to 2.00pm – attendance is FREE to all.The ‘Cross-border Jobs Expo’, will provide jobseekers with an opportunity to meet with prospective employers on the day. A number of key employers from the region will be in attendance. Information will be available on current job vacancies and the Department of Social Protection’s EURES service will provide jobseekers with details of job opportunities, both cross border and in the wider European labour market.There will be information on a range of upskilling opportunities, supports and advice to those interested in returning to work.  The event will, therefore, not only be of interest to jobseekers but to adults interested in returning to education or training.Declan Doherty, DSP Area Manager for Inishowen, told Donegal Daily, “This year we want to focus solely on Jobs and Employers.“This approach is based on feedback from participants and a joint review by IDP and ourselves. The Dept for Communities (DfC) in Northern Ireland and EURES Cross Border are also key partners in this new Cross Border Jobs Expo.  It is timely as it takes place during National Jobs Week, being organised by the Dept of Social Protection.” IDP Joint CEO, Shauna McClenaghan, sees it as “a great opportunity for local people to meet directly the different sectors with vacancies on offer at the Expo, and is a chance to engage with local employers some of whom are currently recruiting.”Thomas Timlin, DSP Case Officer, Buncrana Intreo, told Donegal Daily, “The role of the Department of Social Protection has expanded in recent years. In addition to providing weekly payments to jobseekers, the Department, through its local Intreo Centres, also offers a range of education, training and personal development programmes to help jobseekers to get back to work.“The Department is, therefore, delighted to be a partner in the event.”Dympna Boyle, EURES Cross Border Coordinator added, “The EURES IE/NI Cross Border Partnership is very happy to support this event which we hope will benefit both employers and jobseekers in this cross border region.“It is important for the people living here in the Border region to have this kind of event in their locality highlighting the opportunities for employment in their own region and to help them with any queries on cross border employment. It is equally important for employers to be able to access the larger cross border labour market”. Pauline Millar, Assistant Director, Department for Communities concluded by saying, “Job Fairs provide an excellent opportunity for jobseekers to speak directly with employers, allowing them to ask questions and better understand the roles they are applying for.“Employers in turn get to meet a wide range of prospective applicants and recruit effectively.“Being in the heart of the community this Expo maximises the benefits for the area and gives jobseekers a chance to see the recruitment opportunities available to them. The Department for Communities is delighted to be supporting this event which offers real job opportunities to those seeking employment.”This is a great opportunity to drop by and meet with local and regional employers and get a sense of what their needs are in the workforce. What better way to look for a job than have an opportunity to have them all in one place and face to face.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, January 21, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest After most of the state got blasted with a winter storm this weekend, and most areas picked up anticipated snow totals,  we shift into an interesting pattern that is developing for the coming 10 days. The extended 11-16 day period features a good deal of uncertainty too. There looks to be a few instances of “whipsaw” like weather, particularly as it relates to temperatures, between now and the end of the month.Today we remain cold. Likely the coldest temps of this blast came in overnight last night, particularly in NW Ohio, but we will be slow to rebound day. The slow move up in temps today will be mostly due to a strong north wind component, which can trigger some lake effect snows in north central and northeast Ohio. We expect some lake enhanced clouds in other areas. However, the rest of the state should turn out at least partly sunny. Temps will be below normal. South winds develop overnight tonight and really ramp up through the day tomorrow. This will quickly drive temps higher, and tomorrow we can actually be a bit above normal for this time of year – mid 30s in northern Ohio, and 40s potentially south of I-70. This strong south flow will be in advance of or next system, which begins to nose in overnight tomorrow night. Rain arrives after near to shortly after midnight tomorrow night and continues through a good chunk of Wednesday, ending as some light, wet snow. Yes, we are talking rain as this thing gets started overnight tomorrow night. However, temps will not be THAT warm…so we continue to have some concern about wet snow flakes mixing in, at least over far northern  and NW Ohio. But we will take another look at the profile tomorrow morning. For now, we project .25”-.75” of rain, and then a coating to 3 inches of snow, depending on where you are at, before everything ends by Thursday morning. The best chances of snow will be over the eastern half of the state. The maps below snow precipitation totals (liquid equivalent) by midnight Wednesday along with snow that can fall in the same period. We can’t rule out the development of lake effect snow overnight Wednesday night into Thursday in northern Ohio. Strong north winds develop through the day Thursday, which will keep lake effect snow potential top of mind over the northern third of the state, but just clouds and occasional sun elsewhere. Cold air settles in for Friday.This coming weekend will feature snow from Friday night through Saturday, giving a coating to 2 inches over about 60% of the state. The best snow potential will be from I-70 northward, although we wont rule it out anywhere. Then we turn partly sunny for next Sunday, and another push of cold air blasts in. A strong snow storm arrives Monday midday and brings snow from I-70 northward through the rest of the afternoon and evening. Overnight and through Tuesday the snow settles in over southern parts of the state. All told this looks like at least a 1-3 inch event, maybe more, with coverage at 90% of the state. Scattered light snow and flurry action lingers into next Wednesday with lower coverage, and cold air stays. For the extended period, data is all over the place. We believe cold air is here to stay and will hold right on through February. However, some models are throwing a significant warm up in for the first weekend in February, with temps way above normal again. For now, we are looking for a dry Thursday (31st), and then snow for Friday, February 1st, with some minor accumulations. Then we will look for clouds and the potential for another system around the 2nd and 3rd, before drying down for the start of the first full week in February. However, our confidence is low in this extended period pattern at this time.last_img read more

USDA: Farmers to receive automatic prevented planting ‘top-up’ payments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest United States Department of AgricultureApproved Insurance Providers to Issue Payments Starting Mid-OctoberWASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2019 — The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that producers currently participating in federal crop insurance who had in 2019 a payable prevented planting indemnity related to flooding, excess moisture or causes other than drought will automatically receive a “top-up” payment. Producers will receive the payment from their Approved Insurance Providers (AIPs) starting in mid-October.Producers with Yield Protection and Revenue Protection with Harvest Price Exclusion will receive a 10 percent top-up payment on their indemnity, while producers with Revenue Protection Harvest Price Option will receive 15 percent. They do not need to sign up to receive payments; all producers with a 2019 prevented planting indemnity will receive the top-up.“It was a challenging planting season for many of our farmers,” said Bill Northey, USDA’s Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation. “We are doing everything we can to ensure producers receive the help they need.“USDA is working with AIPs so that producers can receive additional payments as soon as possible,” Northey added, “and we appreciate the AIPs for helping us help America’s farmers.”The crop insurance industry will deliver the payments as part of the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act of 2019. After the initial payment, additional payments will be made in the middle of each month as more prevented planting claims are processed.“Crop insurance is an important program for many producers to help them manage their production and price risks,” said Martin Barbre, Administrator of USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA). “We’re leveraging that system to efficiently and effectively deliver much needed support to our farmers.”RMA received commitments from all 14 AIPs to deliver the top-up payments:ACE Property and Casualty (Rain and Hail) Insurance CompanyAmerican Agri-Business Insurance CompanyAmerican Agricultural Insurance CompanyCGB Insurance CompanyChurch Mutual Insurance CompanyCountry Mutual Insurance CompanyFarmers Mutual Hail Insurance CompanyGreat American Insurance CompanyHudson Insurance CompanyNAU Country Insurance CompanyProducers Agricultural Insurance CompanyRural Community Insurance CompanyStratford Insurance CompanyXL Reinsurance America Inc.The prevented planting top-up payments are different from the Wildfires and Hurricanes Indemnity Program Plus (WHIP+) payments.

Good food available at Games Village

first_imgWhat makes the athletes and officials, more so the volunteers, happy about the Village? The food, surely, but what makes them really happy is the shuttle bus service.There is a bus arriving every two minutes or so, and just the sheer number of red, air-conditioned buses plying from one end of the village to another is a sight for sore eyes (and a relief to sweaty foreheads).Even before you could take a few paces the buses follow you, the athletes say. “You don’t have to wave at drivers,” one athlete said. “They stop the moment they see you walking.”- That Pakistan hockey forward Rehan Butt is a movie buff is an open secret. He is also a diehard fan of actor Shah Rukh Khan. But what is not known is that after the release of 3 Idiots , Butt is now an Aamir Khan fan.He has seen the blockbuster movie 10 times already and he is willing to watch it several times more. “I love the movie for its message, the cinematography and the comedy.Aamir being Aamir, he has portrayed his role too well and only he could have done that,” says Butt.last_img read more

Is the Premier League title race over already? Not so fast

first_imgManchester City’s eight point advantage after 11 games is leading to talk of the Premier League title race being over in November, but as Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho noted – English football has a habit of throwing up surprises.It is undeniable that City are currently playing with such a verve, fluency and effectiveness that it is hard to imagine them losing three games and allowing their rivals, whether it be United, Spurs or Chelsea, into the race.But while the form of Pep Guardiola’s team and – second-placed United’s recent losses to Huddersfield and Chelsea – point towards a runaway title win, there is indeed lot of football left to be played.”Eight points in the Premier League is not the same in Portugal, La Liga or the Bundesliga. Yes, it is eight points but there is still a lot of play (to come),” Mourinho said after the loss at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, which followed City’s comfortable 3-1 win over Arsenal.While Mourinho was not explicit in his explanation, the fact is that suspensions and injuries to key players happen and, over the course of a long season, can radically impact a team’s form.And while City certainly have plenty of quality, their strength in depth has not yet been truly tested.Guardiola was already taking about his team being tired after their midweek trip to Naples in the Champions League. How will they be holding up physically after a fixture-congested festive season? How will they cope in February when they will be in knockout action in the Champions League?advertisementCity made a strong start last season but then suffered successive defeats — to Chelsea and Leicester City — at the start of December before ending that month with a loss at Anfield on New Year’s Eve.KEY FIGURESPhoto Credit: Reuters United host City at Old Trafford on December 10 — a game which Mourinho surely has his eye on already as a chance to reign in the leaders and he suggested that his team will be stronger with some key figures set to return.”I hope, feel, think and wish that in the busy period at the end of November, December and January, we’re going to be at maximum strength with (Paul) Pogba, (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic and (Marcus) Rojo back (from injury),” he said.Certainly United’s stumble in form after their excellent start of six wins from seven games, has coincided with the absence of French midfielder Pogba, whose partnership in central midfield with Nemanja Matic was developing so well.Romelu Lukaku’s goal drought has had a bigger impact given the absence of an alternative central striker and the return of Ibrahimovic, who had scored 17 goals in 28 Premier League games before his knee ligament injury, would give Mourinho another option.While the focus is on United’s challenge, it is worth noting that Tottenham are level on points with them and after their crushing of European champions Real Madrid last week, a long winning run from Mauricio Pochettino’s team cannot be ruled out.But while Guardiola is right to play down talk of an inevitable title win, he couldn’t help highlighting one key difference from last season – his team’s performances against top six clubs.”Last season against title contenders, we were able to win just twice. Coming into November, we have already beaten Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal,” he said.Six days after December’s clash with United, Guardiola’s side face Tottenham at the Etihad and then on January 14 they are at Anfield, where their title bid unravelled last year.If City can triumph in those games then perhaps talk of a one-horse race can be justified. But as Mourinho says, there is a lot of football left to be played.last_img read more

Instant Reaction: Oklahoma State Squeaks By Iowa State 38-31

first_imgThe game flipped in the third quarter when OSU scored on Washington’s first TD, got a fumble and scored another TD to start the fourth quarter to make it 31-28 after it looked like all was lost halfway through the second half. From there, OSU’s defense forced two punts, had a pick and forced another turnover on downs.It took a full 45 minutes, but Glenn Spencer and Co. finally showed up when OSU most needed them. The end of the game, seemingly like the end of all OSU games lately, was a borderline disaster. OSU got the ball back with just under two minutes left and instead of rushing it a few times and kicking a field goal, took a knee and gave ISU the ball back with 0:20 on the clock (what on earth could go wrong?!)Thankfully, this one ended better than the Central Michigan game, and OSU moved to 4-2 on the year. OSU also moved to 31-2 in the Mike Gundy Era when forcing three or more turnovers and turning it over one or fewer times (they turned it over zero times on Saturday).On to the bye week. We will be back with tons more coverage later tonight. If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Oklahoma State somehow held off Iowa State 38-31 at the end of an insane game in Stillwater on Saturday to keep Mike Gundy’s home record against the Cyclones clean. In fact, Oklahoma State hasn’t lost at home to ISU since the last year of the Bill Clinton administration (2000).It got ugly before it got pretty on Saturday though. OSU trailed 31-14 with three minutes left in the third quarter when it got the ball back on a punt and reeled off 24 unanswered points to close out the game.Mason Rudolph was 26/44 for 351 yards and four TDs but didn’t play nearly that well. He missed short and intermediate throws early and often but threw some dimes to Jalen McCleskey and The President James Washington late when it mattered. I’m still all in on No. 2 (and always have been) but some of his throws on easier routes have been mysterious the last few weeks.What is not mysterious is whether James Washington is good at football. No. 28 had eight catches for 152 yards and two TDs after we were uncertain whether he was even going to play. He also caught what turned out to be the game-winner.last_img read more

Why didn’t hypocritical Messi cry during Chelsea or Madrid controversies?

first_imgJust like the flip of a coin, a controversial refereeing decision has two sides. It’s safe to say that  Lionel Messi struggled with being on the wrong end of such calls during the 2019 Copa America.At club level with Barcelona, Messi has occasionally found himself on the right side of a debatable decision. From the Catalans’ Champions League semi-final win over Chelsea in 2009 to their extraordinary comeback against PSG in 2017, there have been highly-publicised instances where the footballing gods have smiled on the Argentina star. Unsurprisingly, he never stopped to question such fortune on these occasions. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare But in Brazil over the past month, his nation were not so lucky – even with VAR watching on. A number of decisions went against Argentina and their captain, as Messi once again failed to truly shine on the international stage. While question marks rightly swirl around a number of calls, including the 32-year-old’s sending off in the third-place play-off against Chile, there is no doubt his conduct following that game – and after his side’s semi-final loss to Brazil – has left plenty to be desired, with players and coaches alike questioning his lack of ‘respect’. Messi refused to accept his third-place medal on Saturday and alleged that the tournament had been rigged for the hosts, as his frustration boiled over in ugly and – arguably – hypocritical fashion.”There is no doubt, the whole thing is set up for Brazil,” Messi snapped. “I did not want to be part of this corruption, we shouldn’t have to be part of this disrespect we suffered during the Copa America.”We could have gone further but we weren’t allowed into the final. Corruption, referees and all the rest stopped people from enjoying the football.”I always tell the truth and I’m honest, that is what keeps me calm, if what I say has repercussions that is not my business.”The truth of the matter, however, is football is often a game of 50-50s and Messi has previously kept quiet when bad calls have benefited him.  Lionel MessiAn infamous example of this was Barcelona’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Chelsea in 2009 when the Blues were denied a number of clear penalties.The referee that night, Tom Henning Ovrebo, was notoriously branded a “f***ing disgrace” by Chelsea striker Didier Drogba on live television at the conclusion of a tie that Barcelona won on away goals. They went onto beat Manchester United in the final.Ovrebo himself conceded nine years later it was not a performance he’s proud of. “It was not my best day, really,” Ovrebo told  Marca in 2018 having hung up his whistle.”There were several errors and everyone will have their opinion of those plays. But those mistakes can be committed by a referee, and sometimes a player or a coach. Some days you are not at the level you should be.”But no, I can’t be proud of that performance.”Two years after that infamous night at Stamford Bridge, the Catalans would again benefit from a night of Champions League controversy as they beat Real Madrid 2-0 in the first leg of their 2011 semi-final.That night saw both coach Jose Mourinho and defender Pepe sent off for Madrid as Messi struck twice to all but book his side’s place in the final – which they again won against Man Utd.Not one to hold back, ‘The Special One’ launched a scathing attack in the aftermath suggesting Barcelona had been benefiting from questionable officiating for years. “One day, I would like Josep Guardiola to win this competition properly,” Mourinho began his tirade. “We are talking about an absolutely fantastic football team, so why do they need that?”Last year it was a miracle that Inter got there playing with 10 men for so long. A miracle. Why weren’t there four penalties against Chelsea [in 2009]? Why send off [Arsenal’s Robin] Van Persie [in the last 16]?”Why Ovrebo? Why Busacca? Why De Bleeckere? Why Stark? (all referees) Why? Because every semi-final the same things happen.”Where does their power come from? I don’t know if it is the UNICEF sponsorship or if it is because they are nice guys. I don’t understand. They have to get to the final, and they’ll get there, full stop.” Jose Mourinho Real Madrid 2011Mourinho was rightly pilloried for his outrageous Barca conspiracy claims back in 2011 – as well as being handed a five-match ban by UEFA – but eight years later the usually mild-mannered Messi has repeated a similar offence. He now will likely suffer a stern punishment too from CONMEBOL.Given his subdued nature, it was certainly surprising to see Argentina’s captain take a page out of Mourinho’s playbook as he cast a very real shadow over Brazil’s success.For Selecao captain Thiago Silva, who was on the wrong end of a hugely controversial 6-1 defeat to Barcelona with PSG in 2017, Messi’s conduct not only lacked class but had serious shades of hypocrisy.During that Champions League last 16 second leg at Camp Nou, Barca were awarded two very questionable penalties – while PSG were denied a clear one of their own – as the Catalans overturned a 4-0 first-leg deficit to progress.”Sometimes in defeat, we try to focus on other people,” Thiago said after Brazil defeated Peru 3-1 in the Copa America final .”I think he [Messi] did not say it out of spite, but we are sad because, in the game we lost 6-1 to Barcelona, he played the referee, which, in my opinion, was ridiculous.”But we did not give a statement that the referee was in favour of Barcelona. I think you have to show respect.”Brazil do not have five stars at random – none of them have been stolen. It was played on the pitch.”In that respect, nothing can be taken away from Messi’s incredible achievements with Barcelona either.However, the superstar certainly comes away from his Copa America meltdown looking more than a little hypocritical given past refereeing controversies.last_img read more

These 19.2-Ounce Beer Cans Are the New Tall Boys

first_img 9 Best Fall Beers to Drink This Year, According to the Brewing Experts The Ultimate Brewery Tour of Austin, Texas The Best Coffee-Infused Beers to Flip All the Switches Editors’ Recommendations The Best Oktoberfest Beers to Sip On This Season center_img Tall boys were once reserved for big-name beers, but like pretty much everything else, craft beer has entered the game.Best Craft Tall Boys:Anchor SteamOskar Blues Dale’s Pale AleFounders All Day IPASierra Nevada BFDRevolution Anti-HeroDogfish Head Seaquench Jameson Releases Two New Caskmates Editions For the past year, breweries have been rolling out an array of 19.2-ounce cans (equal to an imperial pint, as you’d usually get for a Guinness) so they can make their way into single-serve settings, like convenience stores, sporting events, and concerts.This is a little funny to think about since, not long ago, cans were largely shunned by the craft industry. Can you believe it? (Sorry not sorry.)It’s a small move in many respects, but for some of the larger breweries, it’s important in the competition with the massive global brewers. Here are a few of the 19.2-ounce stovepipe cans to pick up at the next sporting event, concert, or for a day at the beach or in the woods. Or, you know, just for drinking while hanging out on your porch, listening to some good tunes.Anchor Steam BeerAnchor Brewing Company/FacebookSan Francisco-based Anchor Steam pre-dates the craft revolution but its purchase by Fritz Maytag is part of what ignited it. The beer dates back to the 1800s and is just as fantastic in the 21st century. Anchor recently started packaging it in the tall cans, perfect for a San Francisco Giants game.Oskar Blues Brewery Dale’s Pale AleOskar Blues Brewery/FacebookFor all intents and purposes, Oskar Blues set off the can revolution, so why wouldn’t their beers also be packaged in the “stovepipes”? Oskar Blues’ easy-drinking beers like Dale’s Pale, Pinner Throwback IPA, and Momma’s Little Yella Pils all come in the package size, as well as a batch of the Ten Fidy imperial stouts.Founders Brewing Co. All Day IPAFounders Brewing Co./FacebookIt might seem like Founders All Day IPA is pretty much everywhere, and there’s a pretty good reason for that: It’s a solid beer for so many occasions. All Day IPA has kept Founders among the fastest growing breweries in the nation for the past few years as it ascended into the brewing giants realm. The 19.2-ounce tall boy makes plenty of sense for Founders as it sought to get it in more outlets.Sierra Nevada BFDSierra Nevada/FacebookThere’s certainly a trend for easier and lighter-drinking beers from brewers as they recognized the way to more drinkers’ mouths. One of the craft beer OGs, Sierra Nevada, launched its BFD, or Beer for Drinking (we know what you were thinking and no, it’s not that, at least officially), an American blonde ale “that hits all the right spots.”Revolution Brewing Anti-HeroRevolution BrewingRevolution Brewing isn’t one of the largest craft breweries in the U.S. like some of these others on this list, but it’s got big aspirations and certainly has a decent path forward in a world where it’s hard to grow too large anymore. Anti-Hero is a tasty IPA and there’s plenty of sports and concerts in Chicago for this hometown brewery to capitalize on.Dogfish Head Brewing SeaquenchDogfish Head BrewingSeaquench has garnered a lot of support as a refreshing and fairly low-calorie beer for the summer. Dogfish Head says Seaquench is a combination of styles from Germany: Kolsch, gose, and berliner weiss, creating a tart beer with lime juice and sea salt. A great beer for a hot day in the sun (or a concert), Seaquench can be consumed in large quantities, so a 19.2-ounce tall boy helps that task.last_img read more

Tertiary Students Encouraged to Apply For EU-Funded Scholarships

first_imgJamaican tertiary students are being encouraged to apply for European-funded scholarships under the Erasmus Mundus programme.Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation, Jamaica, Ambassador Malgorzata Wasilewska, said it is an opportunity for students to get a better understanding of the diversity and richness of Europe.She was speaking at a recent Jamaica Information Service (JIS) ‘Think Tank’, at the agency’s head office in Kingston.Each year, EU-funded scholarships are awarded to the best student candidates applying under annual selection rounds to study in Europe. Since 2007, there have been over 38 Jamaican Erasmus scholars. In 2017, two Jamaicans were successful in gaining scholarships in the following fields – Sports Ethics and Journalism.“When I arrived here, within the first week I met one of the scholars, who spent six months in my hometown in the north of Poland… so it was quite amazing,” Ambassador Wasilewska said.The EU’s Political Counsellor, Gavin Tench, said that students at The Mico University College, University of the West Indies, the University of Technology and others “can have a look at where they want to go next. Maybe after their first degrees they can look about doing a master’s programme in Europe”.“What we allow Jamaican students to do is not just base themselves in one country or in one university. They have the opportunity to do two universities, possibly three and get exposed to not only the education system in both universities, but the culture,” he added.Prospective students can learn more about the programme via the EU’s website at https://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus-plus/library/scholarships-catalogue_en;the Facebook page, which can be accessed at https://www.facebook.com/EUErasmusPlusProgramme or the Twitter handle, @EUErasmusPlus.last_img read more

Security Council extends UN force in Golan Heights for further six months

The Security Council today extended for a further six months the United Nations force that has monitored the ceasefire between Israel and Syria on the Golan Heights for over 30 years. In a unanimously adopted resolution, the 15-member body renewed the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) until 30 June 2008. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had recommended the extension of the Force in a recent report, noting that while the situation in the Golan Heights has been “generally quiet” recently, the overall region remains tense. Mr. Ban’s report also drew attention to the growing financial shortfall faced by UNDOF, which supervises the disengagement accord between Syrian and Israeli forces after the 1973 war. As of the end of August, some $24 million is owed to the countries that contribute troops to the Force: Austria, Canada, India, Japan, Poland and Slovakia. 14 December 2007The Security Council today extended for a further six months the United Nations force that has monitored the ceasefire between Israel and Syria on the Golan Heights for over 30 years. read more

Annual UNbacked Summer Games to give Gazas children a chance to be

16 June 2011The United Nations-backed Summer Games for children have begun in the Gaza Strip in an annual attempt by its organizers to “give the kids of Gaza a chance to be kids.” The United Nations-backed Summer Games for children have begun in the Gaza Strip in an annual attempt by its organizers to “give the kids of Gaza a chance to be kids.” For five years the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has staged the Games – which include sports, arts and other activities – to provide a recreational outlet for an estimated 250,000 children in Gaza.Noting that this year’s Games coincides with the fifth year of the Israeli blockade of Gaza, the acting director of UNRWA operations in Gaza, Christer Nordahl, said: “We are giving these children a rare opportunity – which shouldn’t be exceptional – but it is.”“Through the Summer Games, we give the kids of Gaza a chance to be kids, to have fun, learn new things and meet new friends,” he added. This year’s event kicked off with an Olympic-style torch relay through the Strip involving 57 children and then an opening ceremony at UNRWA’s field office in Gaza City. Various activities – including several attempts at setting new Guinness World Records – will take place between now and 28 July.“Initiated at the request of the local community, the games give Gazan children a chance to have fun and a sense of normality, in an environment which is anything but normal,” UNRWA said in a press release. “The season provides a diverse set of fun activities for children in the beleaguered coastal area, including sports, swimming, arts, and drama.”Mr. Nordahl said: “The Summer Games build on our ongoing work in Gaza to develop children’s talents, to give them room for self-expression and to teach them to respect one another – all based on the universal values of human rights.” read more

UN expert calls on Member States to recognize Palestinian State

22 September 2011An independent United Nations human rights expert today called on Member States to recognize “the reality of Palestinian statehood,” and urged Israel to listen to the will of the millions of people who have suffered under its occupation. “The upcoming debate on Palestine’s initiative at the United Nations provides a momentous occasion for the international community to respond to a legacy of injustice,” said Richard Falk, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Palestinian territories occupied since 1967. In a meeting on Monday, the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, told Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon he intended to submit an application this Friday for Palestine to become a UN Member State. “Palestine’s status as a State is not merely symbolic,” said Mr. Falk. “It empowers Palestine with rights and duties under international law, such as full jurisdiction over its territory, legal standing to defend itself from other States, and the capacity to join international treaties – including human rights treaties.” Mr. Falk said that for over 44 years, Palestinians in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip have suffered under Israel’s “oppressive occupation.” Israel, he noted, has steadily transferred its population into hundreds of settlements on Palestinian territory, while subjecting Palestinians to widespread and systematic violations of their basic human rights. “While many Israelis may be comfortable with the status quo, the ongoing transformation of the region brings with it new realities,” said the expert. “I encourage Israel to heed calls throughout the region for governance based on the will of the people. The will of the Palestinian people must be respected too, starting this week at the United Nations and until Palestinians can enjoy the right they share with all other peoples of the world – the right to self-determination.” He added that Israel and “its zealous backers in the United States” should take this chance to live up to the promise of the two-State solution, noting that nearly 20 years of negotiations have actually given Israel time to undermine that goal. read more

Brock research explores how municipalities deal with extreme weather conditions

We’ve had more than enough rain to keep sports fields green this spring, but parks departments around southern Ontario know their luck will change at some point.It’s in the hot, dry summer months that municipalities around the Golden Horseshoe have to decide if keeping grass athletic fields lush and green is worth the water it takes to make that happen.A Brock University researcher says this is among several issues parks and recreation departments grapple with as they figure out how to deal with the impacts of climate change.“One of the key questions that came out of this research was, do you water the sports fields during times of intense drought? Is that where the water should go?” says researcher Cheryl Mallen, Associate Professor in the Department of Sport Management.In a recently published study, “Climate Change and Canadian Community Grass-Based Sport Fields,” Mallen and her team interviewed directors, managers and maintenance staff within departments dealing with recreation, open spaces, community facilities and other aspects of park management.There were 16 municipalities stretching from Toronto to Niagara Falls represented in the study.The research team asked participants a series of questions centring on awareness of climate change impacts and strategies to address the impacts.Participants were generally concerned with widely varying seasonal conditions such as winters that are extremely cold or mild, and they considered summer as a major concern with either lots of rain, drought conditions or a combination of the two.Respondents also pointed to the presence of new pests and molds brought about by warmer temperatures and unusual precipitation patterns as troubling new trends.Topping the list of how to deal with climate change was the question of whether or not to water fields during dry times.“I found a real polarization,” says Mallen. “Some groups indicated that they are watering the fields to the extent that they can keep those fields beautifully green, so that the players totally enjoy playing sports on these lush fields.“On the other hand, you have sports fields managers who are saying, ‘our people have already adjusted; they know that the grass is going to be browner. They are adapting mentally that this is what you play on and it’s OK and you can still have a good game of soccer.’”At issue is the cost of watering fields.“The debate is: Do you want your taxes to go up to have green grass on sport fields?” says Mallen. “Some municipalities are saying, ‘we’re trying to be very responsible with our money and stay within our budgets,’ and other areas have more money, so within their budgets they have more to water their fields.”The payoff for green fields, says Mallen, is that they attract sporting events, resulting in more direct and indirect revenues for the surrounding communities.Mallen is also working on a comparative study with sport management researcher Greg Dingle at La Trobe University in Australia, a country that has been battling droughts for more than a decade.There, participants report being uplifted by watered fields, saying that green sport fields bring about positive feelings in people and bind communities together.Mallen’s research uncovered a number of innovative measures municipalities are implementing to keep their fields as green and healthy as possible for dry times. These include:Protecting sensitive sections of field such as goals and centre field by planting seed, surrounding them with hay bales and then keeping the areas covered during the winter using tarpsCarefully selecting the combination of grass seed varieties designed to handle a wide range of weather conditionsUsing new techniques to aerate sport field soilShifting goals and centre fields around from year to year to avoid burning out these heavily travelled areas“Climate Change and Canadian Community Grass-Based Sport Fields” was published May 12 in the International Journal of Environmental Sustainability. read more

US women shut out Japan in preWorld Cup friendly at Crew Stadium

The 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup won’t begin until June 26, but the U.S. women’s national team looks ready. Preparations for this summer’s tournament continued for the American women Saturday with a 2-0 international friendly match win against Japan at Crew Stadium. The U.S. took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute, thanks to veteran forward Abby Wambach’s goal — the 118th of her international career. Just eight minutes later, Wambach assisted on a goal that forward Amy Rodriguez hit off the post to give America a 2-0 lead. The U.S. went on to win by the same score. Japan began the match with offensive pressure and threatened American goalkeeper Hope Solo as the U.S. sat back early. “If you look at the first 25 minutes, I don’t think it’s good soccer,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “(Japan) played good. They kept possession and so forth.” Momentum swung in America’s favor when defender Ali Krieger provided the free-kick service for Wambach’s goal from about 35 yards away from Japan’s net. Wambach met Krieger’s lofted ball in stride and headed it passed Japanese goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori to give the Americans a 1-0 lead. “We struggled big time until we scored the first goal,” Sundhage said. “Abby was great today. Just look at that goal; it (was) fantastic.” Wambach contributed to the American attack again just moments later. In the 37th minute, Wambach assisted on Rodriguez’s goal with a simple pass into Japan’s penalty area. Rodriguez hit the pass in stride, and the ball eventually trickled over the goal line after hitting off Kaihori’s near post. Despite contributing to both goals, Wambach credited the win to the U.S.’s defenders, saying they had a “strong” performance. “We have such a great defense,” Wambach said. “Our back four (defenders) are so solid. I like our chances when we score one goal.” Solo, who collected the 51st shutout of her international career, agreed. “It’s pretty easy playing with this back line,” Solo said. “My work is half as much as it usually is playing in the (Women’s Professional Soccer league).” The U.S.’s momentum continued immediately after play resumed in the second half, as the team fired three shots in the first seven minutes. By game’s end, the Americans took nine on-target shots at Kaihori, but none found the back of the net. Though her team did not score in the final 53 minutes of the game, Sundhage said the U.S.’s performance improved after the team’s early hiccups. “The second half was so much better than the first half,” Sundhage said. “We can do better.” Discipline in every facet of the U.S.’s game helped limit Japan’s offense in the final minutes — America went 21 minutes without committing a foul, from the 62nd minute until the 83rd minute. The 2-0 lead was all the Americans needed. Sundhage said she was happy with the outcome of the match. “This is a great team, and the team put it together,” Sundhage said. “We stayed composed and we came back. You don’t have to play beautiful soccer for 90 minutes, but you need to be smart enough to find a way. We did it.” The U.S. women’s national team will continue its FIFA World Cup preparation with another game against Japan on Wednesday. The match is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. in Cary, N.C. read more

Doctor Who Underrated Villain of the Week Sycorax

first_imgStream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. You know Daleks and Davros and Missy the Master, Angels and Silence hell-bent on disaster. But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big bad.Today is Dec. 1, which means the start of my UVoW advent calendar: A different yuletide monster every Friday, leading up to Christmas—starting with this intergalactic plunderer.Not someone you want to meet in a dark alley (via BBC)SYCORAXFirst appearance: “The Christmas Invasion” (2005)—season 2, Christmas specialHome planet: Fire Trap (JX82 system)Doctor: TenthCompanion: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler, Mickey Smith‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the Earth, creatures were celebrating, while an alien spaceship took berth.All eyes are on Harriet Jones, Prime Minister (yes, we know who you are), as she prepares for a live broadcast from space probe Guinevere One, set to land on Mars.Instead, Britain’s own Christmas miracle is intercepted by a giant vessel rocketing toward Earth. And the first images transmitted live “from the depths of space” are not of the red planet’s rocky terrain, but the red eyes of a craggy alien face.“On the 25th of December, the human race has been shown absolute proof that alien life exists,” a TV news anchor calmly tells viewers.And it’s not pretty.Sycorax wear mantles of bone to hide their grisly features (via BBC)The Sycorax wear mantles of bone, usually keeping their grisly features concealed under helmets. Proficient in the use of certain weapons, the skinless humanoids can deliver a bolt of energy that simply disintegrates its target, leaving only a pile of bones.They travel in a retrofitted asteroid, which used to be their home in the distant JX82 system, known as Fire Trap. Now, the Sycorax use it to raid other “inferior” planets—like Earth.That pixelated glimpse, however, is all most people ever see of the superstitious creatures, who lead a third of the world’s population in a hypnotic trance to just shy of committing assisted suicide.Say it, don’t spray it (via BBC)Meanwhile, Rose—keen and cunning after 13 weeks of touring with the Doctor—bides her time with the Sycorax, fending off her impending death. And those of Harriet Jones, Prime Minister (yes, we know who you are) and Mickey. Until the Doctor wakes up.The first full-episode appearance by David Tennant, this Christmas special kicks into high gear when the bathrobed Time Lord steps out of the TARDIS and into a sword fight the likes of which has never been replicated on Doctor Who since. (Much to my chagrin.)The Doctor’s hand is severed, the Sycorax leader falsely claim victory, the Doctor regrows his hand, the Sycorax leader attempts to attack from behind, the Doctor throws a satsuma at the ship’s sensor, dropping the Sycorax leader to his death.Our Gallifreyan hero orders the Sycorax to leave Earth and never return. We’ll never know, though, if they would have kept that promise—for Harriet Jones, Prime Minister (yes, we know who you are), orders Torchwood to destroy the alien ship.Mickey makes friends everywhere he goes (via BBC)Eagle-eyed Whovians may remember Sycorax from William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Though she dies before the play begins, Sycorax is described as a witch who was the mother of the beast Caliban.The name is referenced in “The Shakespeare Code,” when the Doctor finds a horse skull in The Globe and remarks that “Reminds me of a Sycorax.” (Also a nod to writer and then-showrunner Russell T. Davies, who reportedly based the alien’s facial structure on the skull of a horse.)You just can’t keep a good villain down: The Sycorax make a brief appearance in Eleventh Doctor episode “The Pandorica Opens,” as part of The Alliance formed to trap the Time Lord.Later, in “The Name of the Doctor,” the Great Intelligence mentions them as a faction that left the Doctor “blood-soaked.” Stay on targetcenter_img ‘Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Mire’Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Zygon last_img read more

Gotham Sets Up the First Battle Between the Joker and Bruce Wayne

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. With only two episodes left in this season of Gotham, we’re now seeing exactly how they plan to bring this to the end. And boy am I glad it’s not more Ra’s Al Ghul stuff. Instead, this season is ending with the true beginning of the Joker. All that Jerome stuff was just the person who would inspire the real Joker, and in this episode, we saw how. For now though, Jerome is dead and his followers are hanging around his grave. That’s when a strange woman in a jester hat and mask walks into the crowd. She holds up a portable stereo and plays a final message from Jerome. At least, that’s what it seems like at this point.The main question on all our minds right now is, is this Harley Quinn? The costume certainly looks like hers, but she never talks. Nor does she have any kind of face makeup. Nobody ever refers to her by name, and over the course of the entire episode, she never speaks. I really thought, during the final shot of the episode, she’d have one line. Possibly ending with the phrase “Mistah J.” But that might be a little much to ask from the first time Gotham introduces a character. This also isn’t quite when Harley Quinn should show up in the Joker’s story, but Gotham has always played fast and loose with Batman canon. Especially when it comes to the timeline.Donal Logue (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX)She has some very specific instructions for Jerome’s clown gang that they are all too happy to follow. The first is to dig up Jerome’s body, and take over the Gotham City Police Department for a wake. Why? Ultimately, misdirection. I actually liked the Joker’s plan in this episode. Gotham doesn’t always pull off the intelligence required of criminal masterminds. Even The Riddler’s schemes have been a lot more simple than you want out of the character. But Jerome’s plan kept you guessing as to what was really going on. For this show especially, it was layered, complicated and full of surprising turns. It was fun to watch it all play out, even when we were sure it was all going to turn bad for Bruce at some point.We spent so much time this season watching Cameron Monaghan play the deranged Jerome; it’s easy to forget he can play sane very well too. We knew Jerome’s toxin did something to him, we just didn’t realize what. The episode has us spend almost the full hour thinking it’s just made him extra paranoid. The whole time, I was waiting for some kind of psychotic break to happen, much like the one that turned Ed Nygma into The Riddler. But it never came. Good on Gotham for changing up its villain stories a bit. It lends the episode a nice undercurrent of dread. You know the turn is going to happen eventually, you just don’t know when or how.David Mazouz and guest star Cameron Monaghan (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX)The Joker gang taking over the police station allows the episode some fun action its plot wouldn’t otherwise have. We get to see Gordon be the brilliant police tactician he is. Knowing the mob of clowns outside puts them in a bad spot, he has his officers make it look like they’re fighting back, only to escape out the side door. Then, they lay siege to their own police department while Gordon and Bullock taser one clown to find out what the real plan is. Discretely though, as there are reporters around. Remember, police brutality is funny when it happens to comic book villains. Soon, Gordon finds out that Jerome’s real target is his brother’s lab. Where, as far as he knows, is where Bruce is.Bruce, meanwhile, has led Jeremiah out of his lab after seeing the project he’s been working on. It’s a reactor that harnesses ambient energy. As cool as that invention would be, we all know it’ll be turned into a bomb before the episode is over. Before they can really get to work though, Bruce needs to get Jeremiah out of his lab. He’s found Jerome’s old journal and Bruce can tell reading it is maybe not the healthiest activity. Also, Jeremiah tells Bruce about his brother’s toxin-filled jack in the box. He says ever since he got sprayed in the face, he sees Jerome everywhere. He thinks he’s still alive. Bruce decides he’ll prove Jerome’s dead by showing Jeremiah the grave… which we all know has been dug up.Ben McKenzie (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX)This is where we expect the psychotic break to happen, but to Gotham‘s credit, that turns out to be a red herring. It appears to happen at first. Jeremiah seems convinced by the empty grave that not only is Jerome still alive, but that he killed Bruce and stole his face. Then they find the body, reappeared right next to the grave. (And I have to commend the show for another nice bit of misdirection. You think Jerome’s body is in the coffin the clowns use to break into GCPD. But as Nygma finds out when he sneaks in to rescue Lee, it’s just full of beer. Nice. Remind me to request coffin beers at my wake when it happens.)Jeremiah reveals that he never thought Jerome was alive. The toxin didn’t do anything except turn his face white. He plays sane very well, but really, he wants the same things. He wants to do them bigger, unhampered by what he sees as the limitations of Jerome’s insanity. And he wants to make Bruce watch as the project he pays for gets turned into bombs. His first target: Jim Gordon. Jeremiah knew that Jim would find out about the plan to attack his lab. He made sure he and Bruce would be out by the time Gordon showed up. And so Gordon, forced by maybe-Harley Quinn, watches a video message revealing everything. Including the fact that the reactor in the room is about to blow up. Gordon finds a button that opens the door, but we don’t see whether he makes it out or not. But come on. We know. The show isn’t going to kill Jim Gordon.Cory Michael Smith and Morena Baccarin (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX)Not everything worked quite so well, though. While the episode told its two main stories almost perfectly, its subplots were introduced and quickly forgotten. Penguin and Grundy are squatting in Falcone’s mansion and haven’t made much progress in taking over the city or finding a cure for Grundy. They kidnap one of Jerome’s goons to interrogate him about the dead clown’s plans and… that’s it. Their scenes were ultimately pointless, though they did provide some nice comedic relief to the scarier main plots.Then there was Gordon and Lee. You’d think accidentally leaving her in the station while clowns took over would have some kind of effect on him. But no. He never notices it, and his plot continues on as though nothing happened. The show made such a big deal out of his conflict over her arrest at the beginning, only to drop all of that the minute the clowns show up. In the end, all it gave us was another Lee-Riddler kiss. A signal that their relationship is… in the same place it was at the end of the last episode. I can’t get too mad though, when the meat of the show was so good.The reveal at the end was set up and pulled off so well, it came as a surprise even though we knew something like it was coming. We knew we were going to see the Joker eventually. And we knew it was going to be Jeremiah. Even with that, the way it played out and Jeremiah’s monologue made for a good jaw drop at the end of the episode. He’s borrowing a lot from Jack Nicholson’s version of The Joker now, but it makes for a cool shift. A way to let us know that this is a different character, a different iteration of the Joker. Jerome was closer to Heath Ledger, Jeremiah is Nicholson’s cold sadistic gangster. My only real beef now is that he doesn’t smile enough. His face isn’t twisted or scarred the way you want the Joker’s to be. We can only hope that’ll come before the end of the season.

Florida Woman Spots Giant Alligator ‘Taking a Dip’ in Her Swimming Pool

It reportedly took four hours for Port Charlotte officials to remove the alligator from the scene, since it was splashing around and relaxing in the warm water.At approximately 1:45 a.m. EDT on July 27, Kibbe heard a noisy splash coming from her backyard pool, WBBH-TV noted. When Kibbe went to switch on the pool light, she spotted the reptile, which she estimated to be about 7 feet long. The alligator trapper, who removed the reptile from Kibbe’s property, said the creature was roughly 15-years-old and will be transported to an alligator facility, so it can mate and reproduce with other alligators.On the same day, another giant alligator was “taken into custody” in Florida: The creature, which was about 12 feet in length, was captured after officials said it “chased” swimmers in a Pasco County lake.

Arenal Report

first_imgOnce again Mount Chirripó must bow its majestic head, this time to the intrepid 2013 Arenal Expedition Team. Months ago,David Fountaine, Jim Aoki, Rob and Denice Ley, Jeff Spencer, and Scott Schillereff committed to attempt reaching the summit of Costa Rica’s highest peak, Mount Chirripo.Huddled together in the dark, unheated summit camp with howling icy winds beating on the walls of their small cabin, each member of the team considered the whether the final assault on the summit would be possible. Who would stay behind and who would set out in the pre-dawn darkness? When time came for each climber to decide whether he (or she) had enough physical strength and will to go on, the commitment was unanimous.Recall that the Arenal area was being saturated by five consecutive days of rain, compliments of the Arctic air mass invading deep into the northern hemisphere. Of course, Arenal’s weather caused only inconvenience. Try to imagine the icy wind chill at 12,000-plus feet, penetrating layer upon layer of protective clothing designed with modern technology for climbers exposed to extreme weather conditions.There are two decision points on Chirripó where climbers choose to continue their trek or pack it in and retreat. The first is about halfway up, providing a small comfort station with two rustic wood tables. The second is 13 kilometers upslope and is titled, “The Repentants.”Climbers who choose to go on are surprised at the relative ease of the next kilometer or so which is a slight downgrade. Then, after rounding a turn in the rock-strewn trail reveals a beautiful vista of Chirripó’s craggy heights comes the appalling realization that the rest of the climb to the summit will be nearly vertical! Stamina-sapping cold and wind suddenly become intrusive, but there it is, the prize, The Summit! At this moment the question of, “Can I do it?” must become, “I can do it.” (After all, it would be totally lame for the grandkids to exclaim, “Grandpa almost made it to the top of Chirripó!”)With great determination, the Arenal Team departed the camp at 2:30 a.m. They struggled onward, encouraging each other with every step, until, at last, the summit! It was 40 minutes before sunrise. The temperature, including the effect of blustery winds, was minus 21 degrees Fahrenheit. But at least it wasn’t snowing.It is said that on a clear day, Cuba may be seen from the top of Chirripó, but not this time, as the majestic peak of Chirripo was high above the clouds.To celebrate their success, Scott produced a coffee maker from his backpack and prepared a steaming cup of coffee for everyone. (See summit picture). After much picture taking with the sun rising from below them, the group descended to explore the nearby peaks of Crestones and Terbi, noting geologic formations dating back to the Ice Age when glaciers moved among these mountains.After completing their descent, the Team enjoyed an overnight stay in a local hotel to thaw out and celebrate their victory over Chirripó – a mountain that has sent many climbers home in tears.A victory party celebrating the Arenal Expedition Team’s success is planned after aches, pains and strains have resolved. Congratulations David, Jim, Rob, Denice, Jeff and Scott!-William & Jean [email protected] Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

Obama vigorously challenges critics of landmark Iran deal

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility WASHINGTON (AP) — Vigorously challenging his critics, President Barack Obama launched an aggressive and detailed defense of a landmark Iranian nuclear accord Wednesday, rejecting the idea that it leaves Tehran on the brink of a bomb and arguing the only alternative to the diplomatic deal is war.“Either the issue of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon is resolved diplomatically through a negotiation or it’s resolved through force, through war,” Obama said during a lengthy White House news conference. “Those are the options.” Sponsored Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Comments   Share   Obama insisted sanctions on Iran could be “snapped back” in place if Iran cheats on the deal, even if Russia and China object.

And he shrugged off concerns that a United Nations arms embargo on Iran could be lifted in five years, saying the U.S. and its partners have others ways of preventing Iran from sending weapons to militant groups.Taken together, Obama said, the deal marks a rare opportunity to cut off Iran’s pathways to a bomb and bolster the safety of the U.S. and the rest of the world.“If we don’t choose wisely, I believe future generations will judge us harshly for letting this moment slip away,” he said.___AP writer Josh Lederman contributed to this report.___Follow Julie Pace at https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/2032/IMG3884.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more

Narendra Modi is just the latest sign that Washington is acknowledging to the ground realities in India In 2005 when the State Department had denied Modi a visa then US ambassador to India David Mulford had said “This decision applies to Mr Narendra Modi only It is based on the fact that as head of the state government in Gujarat between February 2002 and May 2002 he was responsible for the performance of state institutions at that time” At that time Mulford also took pains to point out America’s deep appreciation and high respect for the Vajpayee government in New Delhi and “the many successful Gujaratis who live and work in the United States and the thousands who are issued visas to the United States each month” Nancy Powell Reuters Nancy Powell’s boss is the Secretary of State and it is the State Department that has routinely denied the visa to Modi year after year in Washington DC @scotchism quips in a firmly tongue-in-cheek tweet “As Vivekananda said – “If a man can’t go to Amreeka Amreeka must come to his doorstep” Though Powell isn’t visiting Modi visa-in-hand it is an embarrassing U-turn for her office But it’s also an inevitable U-turn In 2005 as Zahir Janmohamed points out in his detailed piece for India Ink about how the visa ban came about there was little organized opposition to the visa denial Evangelical Christians were at the forefront of the opposition to Modi and Indian-Americans who were aghast at what happened in Gujarat in 2002 teamed up with them to push that ban through Since then that evangelical opposition has faded and three Republican members of Congress visited Gujarat in March 2013 Since 2005 court cases against Modi have come to naught Joseph Grieboski founder of the Institute on Religion and Public Policy who was part of the no-to-Modi campaign also admitted to India Ink that no one really knew who Modi was in the US at that time “When the US denied Mr Modi a visa in 2005 it was like the US denying a visa to the governor of Iowa — no offense to Gujarat” he said “The US did not see it as a big deal And back then it seemed clear to everyone in this town that Modi was involved in the riots Now the picture is fuzzier and many are intrigued by Modi” Now Modi is the declared prime ministerial candidate of India’s main opposition party There was really no doubt about whether the US would have to reconsider its visa ban The only question was when and how In fact had Modi himself applied to go to the US in recent years the US would have been forced to confront the issue head-on then But he did not “Modi has not applied for US visa since 2005 My personal advice also has been that he should not apply for a US visa” Arun Jaitley said in 2013 It suited Modi’s image to have the ban in place playing neatly into a victimhood script If he received a visa he was just another Indian chief minister addressing a group like hotel and motel owners in a cavernous conference room in some hotel in Georgia or Texas But it was more newsworthy and dramatic to be addressing NRIs in America via video conference in a sort of hologrammic defiance of the ban helping burnish the Modi-against-the-world image So Modi never applied and the visa ban was renewed as if on auto-pilot with State Department officials saying “he is welcome to apply for a visa and await a review like any other applicant” The US obviously has little moral high ground for the ban no matter what happened in 2002 Its record as is always the case with realpolitik has been selective It has invited plenty of proven despots and mass murderers to the United States and given them grand receptions As the Times of India points out Barack Obama just invited his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta to a US-Africa summit in August although he has actually been charged by the International Criminal Court over violence after the 2007-08 election King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia one of the United States’ closest allies is hardly the poster boy of any International Religious Freedom Act Now with the Indian elections coming up the ban is really moot Narendra Modi is not Devyani Khobragade Not even Modi’s most fervent opponents believe that the US can afford to shut the door on him if he became India’s Prime Minister It would not be about Narendra Modi any more It would be about the Indian Prime Minister In 2005 David Mulford had tried to wriggle out of the situation by resorting to convenient legalese Modi he explained was denied a diplomatic visa to visit the United States because his coming to America to address the Asian American Hotel Owners Association was not a “purpose that qualified for a diplomatic visa” What the State Department had denied him under Section 212 (a) (2) (g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act was a tourist or business visa But of course the Prime Minister of India needs neither a tourist nor business visa to go to the United States on a state visit And given that the US will roll out the red carpet for the next Indian Prime Minister Modi should he ascend to that post can savour it as his great conquering hero moment Actually Nancy Powell reaching out to meet the man who might be India’s next Prime Minister is not news What would really make news and a statement is if Narendra Modi snubbed Powell now and said “Thanks but no thanks” Singapore: A 33-year-old Indian woman whoseheadless

he had disclosed classified information potentially clearing the way for him to resume leadership of the panel’s Russia investigation Republican Representative Devin Nunes who had consistently denied wrongdoing thanked the committee for its finding but said the probe had taken too long and the accusations against him were politically motivated Nunes stepped aside from leading the intelligence committee’s investigation of Russia and the 2016 US presidential election in April as the Ethics panel said it was investigating allegations that he had disclosed classified information The accusations against Nunes arose after President Donald Trump tweeted in March without giving evidence that former President Barack Obama a Democrat had wiretapped him as he competed for the presidency Two and a half weeks later Nunes a Trump ally told reporters that an unidentified source had shown him intelligence reports containing “unmasked” names of Trump associates swept up in foreign surveillance prompting accusations that Nunes had disclosed classified information to provide cover to Trump Trump’s fellow Republicans in Congress have frequently raised the “unmasking” issue during the investigation of allegations that Russia sought to influence the 2016 US election to boost Trump’s chances of defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton and whether Trump associates colluded with Russia Russia had denied the accusations and Trump has dismissed any talk of collusion Some Republicans contend that the potential surveillance of Americans and release of their names possibly for political purposes should be addressed by investigators Former Obama administration officials have denied such accusations and labeled the issue a distraction from serious investigations of US election

April 18 2017 8:36 am Brazil’s President Michel Temer (File Photo) Top News Brazilian President Michel Temer said on Monday some of his cabinet ministers are likely to resign after being placed under investigation in a massive corruption probe as he seeks to draw a line under a scandal threatening his sweeping fiscal reforms Last week a Supreme Court justice opened investigations into eight ministers – nearly a third of Temer’s cabinet – after they were accused of wrongdoing by executives of engineering group Odebrecht SA in plea bargain testimonies The ministers under investigation include close advisers such as Temer’s chief of staff Eliseu Padilha considered key to negotiations on a landmark pension reform to rein in government spending and runaway public debt Temer said in a radio interview that the corruption scandal is “embarrassing” and may lead some ministers to step down “It is very likely that some ministers will feel uncomfortable and believe that they cannot continue” Temer said adding that his administration “will not stop” Temer has previously said he would suspend any ministers charged with corruption and dismiss those who are indicted in the country’s biggest-ever graft scandal which has hung over his efforts to end Brazil’s worst recession in over a century The president himself was accused in testimony made public last week of presiding over a meeting in 2010 in which an Odebrecht executive was asked to arrange an illegal payment of $40 million to his political party Temer has temporary immunity from investigations regarding events before his mandate began in May 2016 He and his ministers have denied any wrongdoing LIKELY COMPROMISES Lawmakers who attended a meeting with Temer on Sunday said he was sticking with his plans to push the pension overhaul through Congress by July With a third of the Senate and dozens of representatives coming under investigation last week however some observers see Congress as increasingly sensitive to popular opinion ahead of their re-election campaigns next year The proposed pension reform is a cornerstone of Temer’s plan to restore fiscal discipline and bolster investor confidence to spark a recovery but it remains unpopular among Brazilians many of whom would have to work longer before retirement Temer’s government is expected to soften some of the more stringent aspects of its initial
