LOS ANGELES, CA – DECEMBER 03: head coach John Calipari of the Kentucky Wildcats reacts to a foul against his team during the first half against the UCLA Bruins at Pauley Pavilion on December 3, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Kentucky pulled out a big win at LSU tonight to push its record to 24-0, but if you believe John Calipari, there were times tonight when he would have welcomed 23-1. Karl-Anthony Towns’ was called for a technical for hanging on the rim midway through the second half, which led to this amazing post-game moment on ESPN. As much fun as that videobomb is, Calipari was livid about the foul, at that point in the game. In the interview he said that he told the team that he hoped they would lose after the foul, and reiterated that point to open his post-game press conference. Calipari goes on to praise his talented freshman as a player and a person, but clearly this mistake, which could have proven incredibly costly in what wound up being a two point game, really bothered him.Kentucky hosts South Carolina this Saturday at 2 p.m.
DAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Members from the RCMP detachments in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, and Tumbler Ridge gave presentations to the Peace River Regional District Board outlining regional crime statistics from last year.Speaking first, Fort St. John detachment commander Insp. Mike Kurvers said that officers had seen an overall decrease in service calls in the rural area, from 3,246 in 2016 to 3,200 last year. He said that overall, most types of crime had decreased, while others increased slightly.Insp. Kurvers said that rural arsons dropped significantly last year compared to the year prior, from 21 to six. Property crime and violent crime saw substantial decreases year-over-year with the exception of sex offences. Those increased from seven to 22 in the past year. The number of vehicle thefts, drug-related offences, and impaired drivers also increased from 2016 to 2017. Dawson Creek’s acting detachment commander Sgt. Mike Richard said that rural calls in the South Peace have increased 33 percent compared to 2016, with police being called out 1,917 times last year. Sgt. Richard said that vehicle thefts were a big problem in 2017, with an average of 15 to 17 vehicles being stolen every month. He did attribute at least part of that to a large chop-shop operation in Doe River, north of Rolla, which was shut down by police last year.Sgt. Scott Hromadnik said that the Chetwynd RCMP had a busy 2017, which he attributed to an uptick in oil and gas industry activity near his community. Sgt. Hromadnik also said that his detachment has been focusing recently on traffic enforcement, as roads in the Chetwynd area claimed seven lives last fiscal year.
UPDATE (Nov. 21, 12:24 p.m.): The interactive tables above have been updated to include the result of Thursday night’s Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs match-up, and that game has been removed (the text of the article has not been updated).After an upset-filled Week 11, the NFL playoff picture has shifted, but the outlook is as murky as ever. The Atlanta Falcons, at 4-6, were among the week’s winners, and have somehow found themselves atop the NFC South after a victory over the Carolina Panthers and a rare home loss by the New Orleans Saints. The Houston Texans — after their win over the Cleveland Browns and the Indianapolis Colts’ Sunday night loss — saw their playoff chances double, to 24 percent.As for the losers, the Browns in a single week went from first to worst in the AFC North (and the Oakland Raiders, crossed out in the interactive above, became the first team to be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention). The Colts have all but squandered any chance at a first-round bye, having dropped games to current Nos. 1 and 2 seeds the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos. And the Saints seem determined to keep the race for the NFC South title interesting.Just two weeks ago, a Saints division title seemed very likely. Now New Orleans has ceded the lead to Atlanta, a team that has yet to win a game outside of the NFC South.1Although nothing to brag about, Atlanta’s poor record outside the NFC South doesn’t hurt their division tiebreakers. So, how bad could it get in the division? How about an NFC South victor with only five regular-season wins? It’s a mathematical possibility, although remote. Of the 50,000 simulations that form the basis for this weekly feature, nine resulted in the Panthers finishing 5-10-1 and atop the NFC South (granted, that’s just a probability of 0.02 percent). And there is about a 1-in-5 chance the division winner will finish with a losing record.Last week, we introduced the use of Gini coefficients to measure playoff uncertainty, specifically the uncertainty of each divisional race. Traditionally used to measure income inequality, Gini coefficients quantify how equally a resource (e.g. playoff probabilities) is distributed. We can also extend this approach to each conference’s overall playoff race.2The lower the Gini coefficient, the more equally allocated the playoff probabilities. As the regular-season progresses, one would expect the conference Gini coefficient to increase as teams begin to drop out of playoff contention — the have-nots ceding their wealth to the haves. By season’s end, the coefficient will reach its maximum value of two-thirds, corresponding to the six playoff berths being shared equally among six of the 16 teams in each conference.The chart below tracks the Gini coefficient by week for the AFC and NFC. There is an upward progression to both lines, but you can see that things have stagnated somewhat in the NFC, with the Gini coefficient declining after a chaotic Week 11.Looking ahead to Week 12, the game with the highest amount of “swing” features the Baltimore Ravens, who are traveling to the Superdome to play the Saints. A total of 87 percentage points of playoff probability is at stake, spread among 15 teams.The matchup between the Miami Dolphins and Broncos results in some conflicting allegiances for two teams in the AFC West. A Broncos victory would help the San Diego Chargers’ and Kansas City Chiefs’ playoff hopes, because both teams are competing with Miami for the two AFC wild card berths. But a Broncos victory would also hurt those teams’ chances of winning the AFC West title. I would imagine a Chiefs fan would prefer to aim high and root for the Broncos to lose. Chargers fans should probably be more pragmatic. An AFC West title is highly unlikely, making a Dolphins loss the more attractive outcome for San Diego’s slim playoff hopes.The most compelling divisional matchup takes place Sunday afternoon, when the Arizona Cardinals visit the Seattle Seahawks. The Cardinals, despite their NFL-best 9-1 record, have rarely cracked the top 10 in the betting market-based rankings used for this feature (see below). They are seven-point underdogs to the Seahawks, a team Arizona leads by three games in the standings. A win by the Cardinals would give them a 94 percent chance of winning the NFC West title — an outcome that was almost unthinkable at the outset of this season. Back then, most would have assumed a dogfight between the Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers.
Ohio State appears to have found a new linebackers coach in former Buckeye and Super Bowl champion Mike Vrabel. Multiple media outlets have reported Vrabel’s hiring by OSU. According to the university’s online directory, Vrabel’s working title is “Assistant Coach-Football.” In an email to The Lantern, Jerry Emig, assistant athletics communication director, said the athletic department was working Sunday on details regarding a press conference. Emig added that OSU has not “announced an (assistant) coach hire yet.” Emig also said the athletic department would release details on an upcoming press conference shortly, though he did not address what the purpose of the press conference would be. Vrabel, a former defensive end at OSU from 1993–96, was the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year during both the 1995 and 1996 seasons. During his college playing days, Vrabel was also a defensive line mate with new OSU head coach Luke Fickell — Vrabel was a defensive end while Fickell played nose guard. Vrabel was drafted in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and spent his first four years as a professional there. Vrabel was later traded to the New England Patriots where he became a force on both sides of the ball. In short-yardage situations, Patriots coach Bill Belichick used Vrabel as a tight end. In his eight years with the Patriots, Vrabel, who typically played linebacker, had 10 receptions, all for touchdowns. During his time in at New England, Vrabel won three Super Bowl and also appeared in the 2007 Pro Bowl. Vrabel was then traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009, where he is still under contract. Media outlets have reported that multiple sources close to Vrabel expect the former Buckeye to retire from the NFL and accept the coaching position at OSU. The Kansas City Chiefs did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on Vrabel’s status with the organization. Vrabel would be coming to OSU after a recent run-in with law enforcement. On April 5, Vrabel was arrested for theft at an Indiana casino and was released later that day after posting bond. Vrabel called the arrest an “unfortunate misunderstanding.” More recently, Vrabel has been a vocal member of the NFL Players Association and is one of 10 players involved in the antitrust lawsuit against the NFL. Vrabel could not be reached for comment.

Ohio State added the second wide receiver to its 2019 recruiting class Friday as four-star receiver Jameson Williams committed to the Buckeyes. Williams is the No. 24 wide receiver in the 2019 recruiting class and is the No. 2 recruit in the state of Missouri according to the 247Sports composite rankings, coming from Cardinal Ritter College Prep in St. Louis. Williams will join five-star 2019 recruit Garrett Wilson, the No. 2 receiver in the class, in Ohio State’s recruiting class. With Williams being commitment No. 15 for the Buckeyes, Ohio State, according to 247Sports, has the second-best recruiting class in the Big Ten and the No. 15 2019 recruiting class in the country. Williams is one of 10 four-star recruits in Ohio State’s 2019 class, joining Wilson and offensive lineman Harry Miller, the two five-star 2019 recruits.
Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) and sophomore defensive end Chase Young (2) shake hands following the Ohio State-Penn State game on Sept. 29. Ohio State won 27-26. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorChase Young wants the play to go to him. He prays for it. With Penn State facing a 4th-and-5 at the Ohio State 43-yard line down one point with 82 seconds left in the game, the sophomore defensive end was lined up, ready to jump off the line of scrimmage when the ball was snapped. As Nittany Lions redshirt senior quarterback Trace McSorley stepped off, changing the play call, Young touched his chest and pointed to the sky, something he said he does often, though it’s not caught on film. “I think everything is in God’s plan,” Young said. “I prayed and said ‘God, if this play’s coming to me, help me make it.’ I sent one up and it came to me and I made it.”As McSorley snapped the ball, Young moved around Ohio State redshirt junior defensive lineman Jashon Cornell, who held off the right tackle, immediately plugging the hole Penn State junior running back Miles Sanders attempted to run through for the first down, securing the victory for the Buckeyes. This tackle capped off a career day for Young, who recorded three tackles for loss, including two sacks, two quarterback hits and two pass breakups in Ohio State’s 27-26 win over Penn State. Young was recognized as Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week, given to the defensive end with the best performance in college football that week. Young was the second Ohio State defensive lineman to receive the award this year, with junior defensive end Nick Bosa receiving the award after his performance in the season opener against Oregon State. After Bosa suffered an injury during the TCU game, and with no clear timetable for return, Ohio State’s defensive line has had to lean on Young to become a dominant pass-rusher — something he has embraced against both Tulane and Penn State. “Coach [Urban] Meyer, he tries to tell us not to wait, so I think every chance I got to get on the field, I tried to put my best out there,” Young said. “I guess the Penn State game, I just had a real good game. I thank God I had a real good game. It was a national stage, ABC, and I just thank God that the Penn State game was that I had a good one.”Even with all the success, Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson said he still sees a young player when he looks at the sophomore defensive end. With the high expectations Young had going into his career at Ohio State, a five-star recruit out of Hyattsville, Maryland, Johnson said there is still a lot more for him to learn. Things like using his hands at the line of scrimmage, something Young said Johnson called out as he watched tape from the Penn State win. However, he is looking to correct the mistakes made against Penn State for the Indiana game on Saturday. Young, according to Johnson, strives for greatness. “He’s a great learner, he wants to learn everything,” Johnson said. “He picks Nick’s brain every day on how to rush the passer, things he can learn. And I think that’s what you want out of a player who’s a highly competitive guy and wants to be a great player.” Without Bosa, Young played more snaps than he ever had in a collegiate game against Penn State. And Johnson said as he continues to play, offensive lines will have to begin to notice. But with other weapons on the defensive line, like redshirt junior defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones, Johnson said it will be hard for opposing lines to treat Young like they might Bosa. That’s the kind of attention Young wants from opponents, the attention the injured All-American has. “He wants the role,” Johnson said. “I think Chase, he’s a competitor, so he wants to do well.”So far this season, Young has shown potential. He leads the team with four sacks and is tied for the team lead with six tackles for loss. However, Young still thinks he has a ways to go to meet the expectation he has for himself. “Not close at all,” Young said. “I made a few mistakes and I got to get the corrected. Obviously, you never want to play a perfect game, but you want to play, you want to try and play a perfect game. That’s what I am trying to do.” For sophomore cornerback Jeffrey Okudah, the defensive line sets the bar for the rest of the defense in terms of what each unit strives to be. “Once everyone hits [the level of the] defensive line group, we are just all going to elevate together,” Okudah said.Even with Bosa out, that mentality for the rest of the defense has not changed. Instead, the rest of the defense strives to be like Young.
Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets has reached an agreement with the club over a new deal, according to Marca.The club’s vice-captain is closing in on signing a new contract that would see him increase his salary at the club. Busquets signed an extension recently in 2016 and didn’t demand for a new pay rise but the club hierarchy felt the midfielder has earned the right to earn more money at the Camp Nou.The new contract isn’t really an extension for the Spaniard but an improvement in terms of his wages with the length of the contract remaining the same.The 2019/2020 betting odds for La Liga Stuart Heath – August 12, 2019 Going into La Liga kick-off, we take a look at what the bookmakers think.La Liga season is less than a week away and we’re…It runs until June 2021, although Barcelona retain a club option to extend that to the summer of 2023. Busquets’ buy-out clause stands at €200million, a figure that is rather low when you consider the money spent by the Blaugrana on inferior midfielders as recently as the January transfer window.Sergi Roberto’s own contract renewal was finalised in January and this had an embedded buy-out clause of 500 million euros.Simply, the Catalan giants don’t believe Busquets will ever truly push to leave, and this aforementioned bump in pay puts the holding midfielder into the second tier of Barcelona’s squad just below Lionel Messi.
Cruise figures forecast to drop, says Tourism Director Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 01 Feb 2016 – It has been about a decade since Grand Turk has had a domestic fire department and the Premier on Friday confirmed that only Providenciales has a domestic fire department; this means thousands of residents, guests and their properties are left vulnerable to the ravages of a fire.It also means, in the case of Grand Turk, the risk is very high for the airport to be shut down when the community needs the aerodrome unit’s help.In speaking to why there is no fire truck in the Capital island which is home to a cruise port which caters to nearly a million tourists per year, a hospital, three government schools and is the seat of government for the country; Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing said the decision is now taken to establish a domestic fire branch, but the family islands won’t see the same. Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing: “There are plans but those will come with need and demand because obviously the best model is to have domestic and the aerodrome, but, as you know most of the family islands do not have frequent air flight services. So it is really not the best cost effective to both services. In Grand Turk the chances of having a fire at the same time a flight is landing is increasing so we have to have both services.” Minister of Works puts government buildings reconstruction post hurricanes at $8.6m Beaches puts former Premier on blast about controversial pier Related Items:fire truck, grand turk, premier rufus ewing

Allan claims the comeback victory Genoa 2-1 at Marassi is worth more than three points for Napoli in the pouring rain.Napoli were behind courtesy of a Christian Kouame header when play was halted at the 59th minute for a waterlogged pitch.When it resumed, Goals from Fabian Ruiz and Davide Biraschi(O.G) completely turned the tie around to secure victory for the Naples side.“Considering how the victory arrived, it’s worth even more than three points,” Allan told Football Italia.Top 5 Serie A players to watch for next weekend’s activity Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Top 5 players to watch in Serie A next…“It was a hard-fought win in a really difficult arena, even more difficult to play in today with the atmospheric conditions.“We won and that’s the important thing, we can go into the break for international duty with more confidence.”Juventus visit Milan tomorrow evening, while Inter have a tricky trip to Atalanta, so it could be a very positive round for Napoli.“I’m sure Milan-Juve will be entertaining to watch, but we mustn’t think about it too much. There’s a long way to go, we must focus on ourselves and look forward.”
Former striker Andy Cole is bewildered by Unai Emery’s “strange” decision to not play Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.The German playmaker has only started half of Arsenal’s 26 Premier League matches this season amid struggles to force his way into Emery’s plans.In fact, Ozil has only featured twice for the Gunners in 2019 due to both fitness struggles and Emery’s decision to omit from matchday squads.Despite recovering from an illness this week and returning to training, Ozil was again left out by the Spanish coach for Arsenal’s 1-0 Europa League defeat to BATE Borisov in Belarus on Thursday night.And Cole, who started out his playing career at Arsenal before going on to star for rivals Manchester United, admits he can’t understand why Emery refuses to play someone of Ozil’s calibre.“It’s becoming a bit of a comedy sketch at the moment,” Cole told Sky Sports. “We know how talented he is.“The manager has decided maybe he doesn’t want him in the team, he doesn’t work hard enough or whatever, but sometimes when you have that luxury, I think some of the boys in the team would be prepared to work a little bit harder to get him on the ball to produce that magic.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Arsenal over the previous years, when Wenger was there, did that. You’ve got to play your best players when you need them, and Ozil is one of Arsenal’s best.“If you asked [Alexandre] Lacazette and [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang: ‘Do you want Mesut to play?’ they’d say yes all day long, all day long! It’s really, really strange.”On the other hand, former Celtic manager Neil Lennon expects there will be plenty of interest in the “divisive” Ozil should he leave Arsenal this summer.“You have a talent like that, and it might come down to man management,” said Lennon.“He has certainly been a divisive character over the last few years. He’s like Marmite, some love him, some don’t! For me, I love watching him play.“He does get criticised a lot for his work rate, or lack of work rate, but his stats are up there for distance covered with many other players. He will certainly find a place somewhere, because he’s got the game.”LONDON, ENGLAND – JANUARY 29: Mesut Ozil of Arsenal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Cardiff City at Emirates Stadium on January 29, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

The site, is where the center piece of the 500-acre bayfront makeover is being built: A 1,600 room resort hotel and adjoining convention center, 275,000 square feet.And starting early Monday morning and continuing all day long, through August 11th, this will be the scene here– truckload after truckload of dirt being hauled in from an excavation project at the UC San Diego campus.The goal is to build up the site some 6 to 8 feet– that takes some 210,000 cubic yards of earth. Hence, the convoy of big rigs up and down the five through the middle of August.Engineers are increasing the site’s elevation for two reasons– drainage would be an obvious one, but with an eye on the future– the second reason is the continued warnings about future sea-level rise.The port’s project manager, Mark McIntire, said the Port has been studying this issue for a long time and through science and theoretical projections, determined there is a lot of need to raise sites near the coastline various elevations. They’re also raising another nearby area, using 60,000 cubic yards of earth. Posted: July 16, 2018 Chula Vista Bayfront makeover construction continues Ed Lenderman, FacebookTwitter

Folio: and min, in partnership with Snap App, conducted a short pre-conference survey, unveiled at today’s Content Marketing & Innovation Summit in New York, that reveals content marketing and native advertising may not be pursued in such a broad-based way among publishers. As most of the speakers at the Summit noted, we’re in the midst of fundamental changes in the advertising market—mostly in the form of greater interest in custom, integrated advertising solutions. There are plenty of publishers that have not jumped on that bandwagon, however.According to the survey, which had about 100 respondents, content marketing is a mixed bag in terms of priority. On a scale of one to five, with five indicating the lowest priority, 25 percent of respondents were right down the middle, giving content marketing a priority of 3. Seventeen percent said it was a top priority. Also, respondents listed a fairly old-school menu of content marketing services, with 60 percent indicating print magazines and special issues, 41 percent noting advertorials and 38 percent citing white papers as the kinds of content marketing they do.Thirty-six percent of respondents said less than 10 percent of overall advertising revenue comes from content marketing, with about 67 percent, in aggregate, saying 11 percent or more.

Oppo has been trying new things like introducing sub-brands to launch phones in a different price range. After Realme, Oppo now plans the same for Reno and the official launch of Reno and Reno 10X Zoom edition smartphones in India have finally been confirmed.Oppo sent out media invites confirming Reno smartphone’s launch date in India on May 28.
