Trinamool leader killed in Bhangar


first_imgFresh violence erupted in Bhangar in South 24 Paraganas district of West Bengal after a local Trinamool Congress leader was allegedly shot dead in the Natunhat market area on Sunday. Locals said the deceased, Ashikur Rehman was a panchayat samiti member and a close aide of former Trinamool MLA Arabul Islam. Contradictory versions were given by locals on the incident. “Trinamool goons have been gathering in the area for the last few days to foil our mega rally [against the proposed power grid in the area]. Mr. Rehman died after being hit by a stray bullet accidentally fired by a Trinamool worker,” a member of the Committee for Protection of Land, Livelihood, Ecology and Environment told The Hindu. However, a section of the residents said the incident was an “outcome of the faction feud in Trinamool.” “Armed Trinamool cadres of several factions had gathered at Natunhat and violence broke out among them,” said a resident. Bhangar has been tense for the last couple of months over the setting up of a power grid.last_img read more

It’s also the story of Utah, which might get in the mix to host a Winter Olympics in 2026 or 2030.The chairman of the LA bid was in Park City on Tuesday for the U.S. Olympic Committee media summit to discuss Los Angeles’ recent victory; many of the questions he fielded, though, involved whether a U.S. bid for an upcoming Winter Games might make sense, too.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Twenty-six is complicated, obviously,” Casey Wasserman said. “Obviously, there are real challenges from a timing perspective, two years before us. But I think our approach has been, the Olympic Games, whether summer or winter, are good for American athletes. Our intent is to be a good partner to the USOC and American athletes.”The USOC board will meet next month to discuss the possibility. The same country hasn’t hosted back-to-back Olympics since before World War II, though when the International Olympic Committee scrapped its traditional rules and awarded 2024 (Paris) and 2028 (LA) at the same time, it indicated it was certainly open to new ideas. Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympics in 2002, and what remains there and in Park City pretty much adheres to Agenda 2020, the blueprint that IOC President Thomas Bach set for future Olympics, which calls for less spending on new venues and infrastructure.Through a legacy foundation, the area has maintained an Olympic speedskating oval and a Nordic skiing course, each of which have drawn local athletes to their respective sports and could be used as part of an upcoming bid. The Utah Olympic Park remains an active training ground for action sports, for both U.S. athletes and those from other countries who are invited to work out there.Meanwhile, Utah likes the Olympics: NBC says Salt Lake City has ranked as either No. 1 or 2 among U.S. TV markets over the last three Winter Games.Leaders of the movement to bring the games back to Utah have largely stayed quiet, not wanting to take the limelight from Los Angeles, which helped the U.S. put a stop to a long string of embarrassing losses on the Olympic bid front. But a handful have told The Associated Press that there is enthusiasm for a potential bid if the USOC will sign on.“There’s fantastic momentum to have the Games come back. I think we could do it for a very affordable price compared to the rest of the world,” said Ted Morris, the executive director of U.S. Speedskating, which is based in the Salt Lake City area. “In my opinion, looking at ’26 is probably not realistic, but ’30 seems like an opportunity.”ADVERTISEMENT Read Next LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  The most complicating factor for either year would be a reworking of an agreement between LA and the USOC that transfers the USOC’s marketing rights to the city’s organizing committee over an eight-year span. Adding another American Olympics to that mix would force some major renegotiations.There’s also the issue of the IOC bid process. Bach has redrawn the rules for 2026, creating friendlier deadlines for cities to commit to a bid. But he has not committed to a potential double award for 2026 and 2030, the way he did with 2024 and 2028.Also, the USOC will have to consider Denver and Reno, Nevada, which also have expressed interest in hosting a Winter Games but would be behind the curve compared with Salt Lake City.“Thomas Bach has publicly stated he’d like to see the Winter Games return to a more traditional location, and to me, that’s code for Europe or North America,” said USOC chairman Larry Probst, speaking to the fact that the hosts for 2014, 2018 and 2022 are Russia, South Korea and China. “We’ve got to look at that, then develop a strategy about whether we’re going to bid for the (2026) Winter Games or beyond that.” MOST READ FILE – In this Feb. 9, 2002, file photo, Georg Hackl, of Germany, speeds past an Olympic logo during a practice run for the men’s singles luge at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in Park City, Utah.

The Sims-Tshimanga Timeline


first_imgHerschel Sims vs. Texas TechThis entire thing has been one epic cluster so far. The Oklahoman and Tulsa World are kind of reporting on it but they can’t use Sims’ name because it’s not official yet. The O’Colly’s old crime beat reporter (and new news editor) has been doing the best work, but she’s currently interning at the Drumright Gusher (not kidding). And OSU isn’t saying anything, at all, ever. All of this has left us with a bunch of message board conjecture and one fairly damning police report filed in Stillwater.Here’s what we know…May 29 at 1:44 pm – CowboysRFF tweeted “Hearing incredibly troubling chatter about Herschel Sims. Please don’t be true please don’t be true please don’t be true. Yikes.”May 29 at 1:45 pm – I exchanged messages with CowboysRFF and he told me basically what everyone else has heard: Sims stole $700 from Tshimanga’s bank account.May 29 at 10:30 pm – I heard from enough people that I pretty much knew the Sims rumor was true, so I posted this. May 30 at 11:23 am – Samantha Vicent (former O’Colly crime reporter) tweeted “Herschel Sims is a story. Stay tuned.”May 30 at 11:55 am – Samantha Vicent tweeted this link which said the following: Linebacker Jeremiah Tshimanga told officers on May 18 that his bank account was accessed without his consent. The loss is estimated at $700, said Capt. Richard Atkins on Wednesday. “The victim reported the incident as occurring at the Stillwater National Bank on 1102 West Hall of Fame Avenue,” Atkins said. “We have not yet submitted an affidavit to the District Attorney’s office.” Tshimanga reported that a teammate stole his alien residence card and went to the bank to withdraw money, according to a police narrative. He noticed the card missing around April 25 but thought he misplaced it. However, Tshimanga checked his bank account May 1 and saw two withdrawals he did not make, he said. The reported fraudulent transactions were made April 27 at 10 a.m. and 2:36 p.m. for $500 and $200, respectively, according to the narrative.There was no birth date or suspect name in the original article, only the mention that a teammate was the suspect.Then things got a little odd.May 30 at 4:47 pm – Gina tweeted this link which said:Though the name was redacted, the suspect is listed as a 21-year-old black male, standing 5-feet-10 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds.May 30 at 4:48 pm – Gina tweeted “two key things in Tshimanga police report: says suspect is 21. Also does not specify that it was a teammate.”Except that Vicent was reporting that it WAS a teammate. Gina wasn’t saying that it wasn’t, only pointing out that the police report didn’t specify, which seems like an odd thing to need to point out.ALSO, she incorrectly pointed out that the suspect in the report was 21, later clarifying: “Correction on Tshimanga police report. Suspect is 20, not 21. Birthday and age given on report did not match up. We have fixed it.”This wouldn’t be a big deal except that an hour before Kelly Hines of the Tulsa World had tweeted this picture to me.For those of you too lazy to click on the link, it’s a photo of the birth date on the police report of the suspect: 9-17-91.According to the OSU website (BUT NOT ACCORDING TO WIKIPEDIA, as I found out)…Herschel Sims’ birth date is 9-17-91.And that, my friends, is what we know as of now.This is a really strange story that has been reported on backwards. That is, usually stories go something like this Oklahoman, O’Colly, or Tulsa World ——> Pistols Firing and Cowboys RFF ——–> Orange Power and Go Pokes message boards ———> Twitter.Whereas this story started on Twitter and the message boards, went through PFB and CRFF, and on up to the papers. It’s really a crappy spot for Gina, Hines, and the rest of the beat writers to be in because they basically know Sims is the suspect and/or is guilty but they can’t officially report it until the Stillwater police release something more official, at least with his name on it.I think stories like this say something bigger about the narrative of how journalism works in 2012 between blogs and papers (in 1982, the papers could have sat on this for days or weeks without us knowing) but that’s another topic for another time…UPDATE: We should know something by the end of the day or beginning of tomorrow morning.

Klopp said, “He’s a brilliant player and I was happy he could play today. It’s not that Brighton had one attack after the other – we had the ball most of the time so it makes sense to have a good footballer in that position. “Brighton tried a little bit to bring the long balls to Murray and around him, which they did, by the way, against Joe Gomez in the home game as well.

Ashley Judd Says She Will Be Pressing Charges On Fans Who Sexually Harassed Her On Twitter


first_imgAshley Judd speaks on TV.Sunday, Kentucky superfan Ashley Judd, who was clearly emotional during what was a rough SEC Tournament title game, tweeted during the second half that the Arkansas Razorbacks were playing “dirty” against her Wildcats. Unfortunately, in response, Judd claims she was both called inappropriate names and threatened with sexual violence by a number of users. She tweeted her frustration afterwards, and showed her followers an example.Monday, Judd, who has written in her memoirs about being a sexual abuse survivor, told MSNBC that she’ll be pressing charges on the users who sent her the tweets. She joined Thomas Roberts to talk about Kentucky’s chances in the NCAA Tournament and eventually got to the topic of social media. Start the video around 4:35 if you’re just looking for that portion.Judd made no mention of how many Twitter users she’d be pressing charges against.

OSUs Dominic Clarke arrested wont play at Illinois


Ohio State football sophomore cornerback Dominic Clarke will not travel with the Buckeyes for Saturday’s game at Illinois after being arrested Sunday and charged with disorderly conduct during an on-campus incident involving what a witness described as a “compressed air” gun. An OSU student called the university police department and said that three black males were sitting on top of the roof of Marketplace, a campus eatery, “firing a paintball gun down at people.” The student said he looked out his window and saw the men on the roof.  “I can’t totally tell if it’s an Airsoft or a paintball, but it’s using compressed air,” the student said. The OSU police department report identified Clarke, as well as football freshman offensive lineman Chris Carter and men’s basketball freshman Sam Thompson. Both Carter and Thompson gave statements to police but were not arrested. In an email to The Lantern, OSU football spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed that Clarke would be suspended. “The individual was involved in a university rules violation,” Emig said in an email. “The issue is currently going through the university process, and head coach Luke Fickell has announced that he will not be traveling with the team to Illinois this weekend.” Basketball team spokesman Dan Wallenberg said in an email, “We have no issues with any basketball student athletes.” The police report said that the incident is still under investigation. read more


No such thing as a bad point for Columbus Blue Jackets


There’s no time to waste in the current NHL season – the Columbus Blue Jackets just need points. So far, they’re getting the job done. The Detroit Red Wings crashed the Blue Jackets’ Monday home opener by tying the game at three with 6:04 remaining in regulation before winning in a shootout, 4-3. The night wasn’t a total loss, though – players in the Columbus locker room found consolation in gaining a point by virtue of forcing overtime against the visitors. That valuable point in the standings gave the Blue Jackets three points through two games (the first two came in Saturday’s season-opening 4-3 shootout win at Nashville). It took the 2011-12 Blue Jackets nine games to make three points and claim their first win. So, while it’s true that the Blue Jackets were a mere 6:04 away from only the second 2-0 start to a season in franchise history, the team is taking a glass-half-full approach to the situation. “For us, (Monday’s game is) still a good point,” Blue Jackets wing Vinny Prospal said after the game. “I think, before the season, if anybody told us we’d have three points after the first two games, we would take it.” Prospal scored his first goal of the season – the would-have-been game winner – with 11:17 to play in the third period to put Columbus up, 3-2. Red Wings veteran center Pavel Datsyuk erased that lead when he jammed the game-tying goal past Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky from close range. After a scoreless overtime period, Detroit center Damien Brunner scored the only goal of the shootout to win the game. A single point isn’t to be taken lightly in the current lockout-shortened, 48-game season. Fewer games mean fewer chances to climb in the standings and a significantly narrowed margin for error when compared to the ample opportunities teams have to improve during the typical 82-game seasons. Another product of the condensed schedule is quick turnarounds – Columbus will play its third game in five days Wednesday against the Phoenix Coyotes. If there was any lingering frustration about letting a win against Detroit slip away, Blue Jackets’ defenseman Jack Johnson compelled his teammates to quickly move beyond it. “You have to let it go,” Johnson said. “We have to get ready for Wednesday … win or lose, you have to put it behind you and get ready for the next one.” A win against the Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Ariz., would give the Blue Jackets five points – it took last year’s team 12 games to reach that plateau, and they were already fading from the playoff picture, having posted a 2-9-1 record during that span. So long as the team doesn’t fade into playoff oblivion again, when and how the points come probably isn’t of much consequence to the Columbus players. The goal, Johnson said, is to simply accumulate points every time out and stay in the hunt. “We’re trying to find a way to get a point in every single game,” Johnson said. “Because every point is so precious with only 48 games.” John Davidson, president of hockey operations for Columbus, agreed. “There’s no such thing as a bad point,” Davidson said. “Not this year.” The Blue Jackets’ Wednesday game at Phoenix is scheduled for an 10 p.m. start. read more


Brazil the best team in the World Lukaku


first_imgBrazil are the best team in the world but Belgium can beat them says Lukaku, according to ESPN.Romelu Lukaku believes that he and his teammates have what it takes to beat Brazil despite referring to them as the best team at the World Cup.The Belgian striker is among the top scorers at this World Cup so far with four goals to his name. His sublime dummy against Japan was enough to put West Brom’s Nacer Chadli through on goal and the wide man made no mistake from six-yards out.Roberto Martinez’s men look very good in attack and Lukaku knows the game against Brazil will provide them an opportunity to show how far they’ve come.“For the past two years we’ve been playing with this system and we’ve improved as individuals,” Lukaku told reporters during the pre-match conference.“Tomorrow’s match against the best team in this World Cup will be a good test to see where we stand as a team.”Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals his biggest influence in football


first_imgSwedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic granted an interview to L’Equipe where he gave a surprising statement about his real influence in football.We have lived inside a lie for all these years, we always thought that Ronaldo Nazario was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s biggest influence in football but we were mistaken.The Swedish striker just revealed the truth about this during an interview with L’Equipe where he spoke about the time when he played for Juventus during a small period of time and met the player who taught him the biggest lessons in the profession, that man is French midfielder, Patrick Vieira.It’s weird I know, but if you stop to think about it, this revelation actually makes a lot of sense.During that period when Zlatan Ibrahimovic had just moved out of his bubble in Holland where he became a world-class player at Ajax from Amsterdam, coming to Serie A was one of his biggest career moves and he arrived in a squad that was filled with some of the biggest names in football at the moment.There he would meet a couple of French legends who quickly grounded him and made him realize that he was a flawed individual, one who could achieve greatness but needed to learn a few life lessons first.Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira wishes Zlatan Ibrahimovic good luck at Manchester United: https://t.co/3q9ivJrSUZ pic.twitter.com/44oFNV5nEe— Metro Sport (@Metro_Sport) July 1, 2016At the time, there was actually no one better than Vieira to teach him those lessons and both players quickly developed a close bond. Even when Juventus was part of that match-fixing scandal in 2006, the two of them decided to play for Internazionale Milano together and they continued to make their friendship flourish.This reveal is really weird because now the video of Zlatan Ibrahimovic admiring Brazilian Ronaldo when they met at a Milano Derby later on, just looks a bit creepy now because we always believed that Zlatan’s biggest influence was the legendary Brazilian striker.But then again, Patrick Vieira does look like a man who could teach a few things to anyone about football, maybe that’s why he decided to become a manager after his career ended.Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke the news to eveybody on his latest interview to French journal L’Equipe, where he also spoke about the possibility of going back to Paris Saint-Germain as a manager in the future, hinting that this could be the next career path for him.Mario BalotelliCorini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals Patrick Vieira was the biggest influence on his career – “he was always on my back, it was never good enough”. https://t.co/pkqI022Yeg #Juventus #FCIM pic.twitter.com/DLvY6KAIgb— footballitalia (@footballitalia) November 9, 2018“When I met him at Juventus, he had a really different mentality from the other players I’d known,” Ibrahimovic told L’Equipe.“He was always on my back, I thought I was doing things right but it was never good enough. He showed me that you have to give more, want more.”“He taught me that we play as we train. That’s how it works: if you train well, you play well. I don’t need to tell you the player and the professional he was.”“He was a phenomenal player who will remain in history, but I’m happy I knew the player and person. He deeply influenced my game by pushing me to give 120 percent every day, every game.”“I’m not surprised he became a Coach, he already had that in him: his experience, his maturity, his way of helping others.”“He was always available to talk. He really helped a lot of players, not just me. There were big stars at Juve at the time, and to please them you had to give a lot, you got nothing for free,” he concluded.Zlatan Ibrahimović: “Vieira is one of the best players I played with. He was a monster. He taught me so much.” pic.twitter.com/pg9ogekbBM— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) December 2, 2015What do you think about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s unexpected revelation about his biggest influence in football?

The Justice Department sent letters to cities struggling with gun violence, telling them they will be ineligible for a new program that aims to root out drug trafficking and gang crime unless they give federal immigration authorities access to jails and provide advance notice before releasing someone in custody who is wanted on immigration violations. The cities — Baltimore, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Stockton and San Bernardino in California — all expressed interest in the Justice Department’s new Public Safety Partnership, which enlists federal agents, analysts and technology to help communities find solutions to crime. “By taking simple, common-sense considerations into account, we are encouraging every jurisdiction in this country to cooperate with federal law enforcement,” Sessions said in a statement that accompanied the letters. “That will ultimately make all of us safer — especially law enforcement on our streets.” In the letters, the department asked the four prospective cities’ police departments to show proof of their compliance by Aug. 18. The threat marks Sessions’ latest effort to force local authorities to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, part of a push to reduce crime he believes is linked to illegal immigration. Sessions has pledged to make fighting street crime the Justice Department’s top priority, but the strategy is putting him at odds with some city leaders, who say the best way to fight crime and build community trust is to keep local police out of federal immigration matters. Sessions last week told jurisdictions they need to meet the same conditions or lose out on millions of dollars from a separate program that aims to send grant money to support law enforcement. That move made some local officials more defiant. The Justice Department in June tapped 12 cities to receive aid through the Public Safety Partnership, and officials said the four cities that were sent the letters had expressed interest in the next chance at participating. Cities were chosen based on higher-than-average rates of violence and willingness to receive the help and training. Cities that want to be involved going forward will have to show they allow unfettered communication between police and federal immigration authorities, give agents access to jails in order to question immigrants, and provide them 48-hours’ notice when someone in the country illegally is about to be released.last_img read more

first_imgMorgan State University’s picturesque campus was named a national treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. (Courtesy photo)Morgan State University, on May 3, was named a national treasure, a designation that aims to provide the school with funds to preserve the institution’s storied buildings. The HBCU was named a National Treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a privately funded nonprofit organization. Morgan shares this honor with only one other HBCU, Howard University in Washington D.C., whose library was named a national treasure earlier this year. The National Trust’s President and CEO, Stephanie Meeks said in a statement, “The National Trust believes that historically Black colleges and universities tell an important and often overlooked American story.” She added, “We are proud to partner with Morgan State University, a nationally-recognized innovator and education leader.”Morgan State University dates back to 1867, when it was established as one of the earliest institutions to offer post-secondary education for African Americans. Among the many notable alumni and alumnae are former US representative Kweisi Mfume, acclaimed novelist Zora Neal Hurston and Academy Award winning actress Monique. The campus is home to an impressive collection of historical buildings that were designed by pioneering and celebrated Black architects such as Albert Cassell, Hilyard Robinson, Louis Fry, and Leon Bridges. “We have known of Morgan’s significance on the higher education stage for many years and now, as we prepare to celebrate our 150th anniversary, the world will know that, in fact, this university is a national treasure,” said David Wilson, president of Morgan State University, in a statement. “We are very excited and honored by this designation from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In many ways, it is recognition of the value we have placed on caring for and preserving the history of the great Morgan State University.”Under the agreement Morgan and the National Trust will produce a preservation plan that will preserve the many historical buildings on campus, while planning for the university’s future. The National Trust has already worked with Congress to get Historic Preservation Funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Over the years more than $61 million has been reauthorized and secured for the restoration of historic buildings on HBCU campuses.last_img read more

Michele Levine New research from Roy Morgan Resear


first_imgMichele LevineNew research from Roy Morgan Research makes encouraging reading for Apple as it prepares to launch streaming TV service Apple TV+ in Australia later this year. Although RMR describes the market as crowded, it says the potential is “huge”.According to RMR: “Over 17 million (83.4% of Australians 14+) currently access streaming video services or own Apple-branded devices capable of accessing streaming video devices. This market includes over 14.7 million (71.8%) Australians who already use streaming video services such as Netflix, Stan, ABC iView and others who would be interested in a new Apple TV+ streaming service as well as nearly 11.7 million (57%) Australians already capable of accessing the new service.”Among the biggest opportunities, says RMR, is “the 4.6 million Millennials who use streaming services or use an Apple device capable of streaming.”Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan says: “The increasingly competitive streaming TV market is about to get even more cut-throat with the entry of the world’s first trillion dollar company to the market. Apple TV+ will be able to draw upon Apple’s immense war chest of over US$240 billion to create content which Apple announced as ‘cash on hand’ at the end of 2018. However to really make a success in Australia Apple will need to understand the unique dynamics and preferences that drive Australian TV audiences to choose their favourite content.”For example, says RMR, it will need to pay attention to which genres are most popular. “Analysing Roy Morgan’s in-depth media data for Australian users of streaming TV services and Apple devices shows that it is News which is the most widely watched genre. Nearly 60% of Australians accessing streaming services or using Apple devices watch News in an average week well clear of second placed Reality TV seen by 39%. Other popular TV genres for Australians who access streaming TV services or who use Apple devices include Current Affairs shows (32%), Sport (31%), Dramas (30%) and Quiz/ Game shows (30%).”last_img read more
