Alabama Insider Has Major Update On The QB Competition

(Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images)Alabama has yet to name a starting quarterback for the 2018 season, but it’s starting to seem like the choice for the Crimson Tide is an easy one.Former Alabama defensive back Will Lowery was in attendance for the Crimson Tide’s first scrimmage of the season. It was dominated by Tua Tagovailoa.“Disclaimer: this is the first scrimmage of camp, and the only practice I’ve seen. But from what I watched today, I’ll be shocked if Tua isn’t day 1 starter, and it isn’t close. Don’t expect an announcement prior to opening kickoff tho..” he tweeted.Disclaimer: this is the first scrimmage of camp, and the only practice I’ve seen.

Don’t expect an announcement prior to opening kickoff tho..— Will Lowery (@jwlowery29) August 11, 2018Alabama insider Matt Zenitz has more details on how Tua played:Word is that Tagovailoa threw at least three touchdowns with no interceptions while Hurts had three interceptions and didn’t account for any touchdowns.The first Tagovailoa touchdown was more so an excellent play from sophomore wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who put a great move on one of Alabama’s defensive backs and then outran other defensive players to the end zone after catching a short pass.There were at least two more Tagovailoa touchdowns later on, though — one of about 20 yards to redshirt freshman receiver Tyrell Shavers and the one to No. 44, sophomore tight end Kedrick James.Nick Saban is still unlikely to name either Tua or Jalen Hurts the Week 1 starter ahead of time.

Oral Health Receiving Urgent Attention – Dr. Ferguson

first_imgMONTEGO BAY – The Ministry of Health is on a drive to improve oral health services across the island especially in underserved rural communities. Among the plans are the development of a relevant and modern legal framework to govern and regulate oral health care, and the creation of partnerships to enhance service delivery, said portfolio Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson.The Minister, who was delivering the main address at the opening of an international diabetes conference on Thursday (March 21) in Ocho Rios, informed that a number of measures have already been put in place, including the appointment of a new Dental Council, Dental Auxiliary Body, and Dental Appeals Tribunal. This in addition to the establishment of minimum standards of care for oral health, and the deepening of the integration of oral health care into all services offered at the health centres. “This will allow us to focus on vulnerable communities and at-risk groups,” the Minister stated.He lauded the staging of the three-day conference and the focus on ‘Diabetes and Oral Health’. According to the Health Minister, oral health plays a critical role in overall health care and in reducing the prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including diabetes.“The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in Jamaica is now estimated as 7.9 per cent among persons 15 to 74 years old. In addition, 2.8 per cent of the population has predestined diabetes. The condition is a major cause of morbidity in Jamaica and was ranked among the leading cause of death among women, and the third leading cause of death for men in 2009,” he informed. He noted that diabetes is also associated with heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, amputations, eye disease, renal disease, and peripheral neuropathy.Dr. Ferguson expressed the hope that discussions over the three days of the conference, will help in further understanding the linkages between oral health and diabetes and lead to evidence-based policies and programmes that can assist in the reduction of NCDs. He said it is time that the health practitioners take a more holistic approach to health care to reduce the prevalence of NCDs, which he said, are responsible for 70 per cent of deaths in Jamaica, and ensure early detection and control of conditions.“Every health worker, including doctors and dental surgeons will have to view the patient in a holistic way and in congruence with other specialisations,” the Minister argued.The conference is being staged by the University Diabetes Outreach Project (UDOP), which is a joint initiative of the University of the West Indies (UWI), the University of Technology (UTech), and the Association of Public Dental Surgeons.By Garfield L.

Migration begins blame toadlets if ground seems to move in Whistler BC

first_imgWHISTLER, B.C. — An annual migration involving tens of thousands of creatures is underway in Whistler, B.C., but observers could miss it if they don’t look down.Up to 40,000 tiny western toadlets are climbing out of Whistler’s Lost Lake where they hatched as tadpoles and are moving into the surrounding forest.The dime-sized toads, which are native to British Columbia and listed as a species of special concern, grow to full size in wooded areas before returning to the lake to breed.The Resort Municipality of Whistler says western toads are an important part of the Lost Lake environment because the tadpoles feed on residue in the lake, keeping the water clean.But the little amphibians are particularly vulnerable during the toadlet stage as they cross beaches, trails, lawns and busy roads in their journey.The Whistler website says the road to Lost Lake, as well as the beach and lawn are still open, but closures are possible at the height of the migration when as many as 1,800 tiny toads can hop over roads and paths every hour.A statement on the website says environmental technicians and volunteers monitor the migration, while temporary fences, signs and boardwalks have been installed to protect the toadlets from getting crushed.The migration will continue for the next three or four weeks. People are encouraged to observe but are urged to leave pets at home.“Dogs are not allowed on the beach area, as they may trample tadpoles and can become sick from ingesting or licking amphibians,” the statement says. Whistler’s migration has been monitored since 2005 because western toads are very sensitive to environmental changes and the municipality says the amphibians offer an insight into the health of the area’s entire ecosystem.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Joint UN assessment underway in quakehit Indonesia

5 January 2009A joint United Nations assessment mission is being carried out in the Indonesian province of West Papua, where a series of earthquakes yesterday injured hundreds, damaged more than 800 houses and sent some 14,000 fleeing from their homes. Local officials say at least five people were killed in the quakes, the first of which hit at 4:43 a.m. local time and measured 7.2 on the Richter scale, according to the Indonesian National Meteorological Geophysical and Climatology Agency.A second earthquake measuring 7.6 hit at 7:33 a.m. local time, followed by over a dozen aftershocks.According to official data released by the provincial disaster coordinating unit in West Papua, four of those killed were in Manokwari, which is situated 95 kilometres from the epicentre of the quakes, and one person in Sorong. Some 250 people were injured, while more than 800 houses, 34 government buildings, four schools, and 11 places of worship were damaged. The Indonesian National Meteorological Geophysical and Climatology Agency predicts that aftershocks will continue in the next three to seven days.An estimated 14,000 people who fled their damaged homes or left their houses fearing more earthquakes or aftershocks have sought accommodation in shelters for displaced people. The Indonesian Government has reportedly transported relief supplies, including food, medical supplies, tarpaulins, water purification equipment and generators to the affected areas.UN agencies in the provincial capital Jayapura have met to consider what assistance could be provided to local authorities in the affected areas if required.The assessment mission is being carried out by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the International Labour Organization (ILO). read more

Displacement continues amid recurrent clashes in northcentral Somalia – UN

Humanitarian partners in Somalia are scaling up response to displaced people after violence broke out in Gaalkacyo on 7 October 2016. Photo: OCHA/Guled Isse Nearly 90,000 people in the city of Gaalkacyo, Somalia, remain displaced due to increased tensions and the recurrent clashes between forces allied to Galmudug on the one hand and Puntland administrations on the other hand according to an update from the UN relief wing.In the same update, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) points out that some 40,000 displaced people have faced secondary displacement. The clashes in Gaalkacyo, which is in the north-central part of the country, have continued despite a ceasefire agreement signed on the first of November, in Abu Dhabi by Galmudug and Puntland administrations. Gaalkacyo has population of about 270,000 people according to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).Following the agreement, another round of peace talks on the Gaalkacyo conflict was recently held in Bosasso, during which the warring parties were urged to implement the ceasefire agreement.Almost a year ago, the political leadership at the Federal level and the regional bodies such as the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) launched efforts towards a cessation of hostilities. They promise to bring peace.Recurrent clashesWhile the Gaalkacyo conflict continues to disrupt the livelihoods of people who were already displaced and vulnerable, OCHA reports that most of the displaced people have been fleeing to distant villages and struggle to continue their livelihoods.Health officials estimated that 45 people have been killed and 162 injured since 7 October. Civilians make up 25 per cent of the casualties. These continued clashes also cause disruption to the schooling of over 20,000 learners for the fifth consecutive week. While the death toll has increased over the last weeks, health partners of the UN continue to report cases of cholera. In OCHA’s update, humanitarian agencies report that many locals and displaced people have no access to proper sanitation facilities and most people are practicing open defecation.On 7 November, health partners reported 69 suspected cholera cases over the past four weeks from various villages including Bandiiredley, Docol, Galinsoor, Wargalo and Xaar-xaarka near south Gaalkacyo. The cases have been treated in health facilities. To date, no cholera related deaths have been reported.Humanitarian responseOCHA reports that humanitarian partners have assisted 60,000 people in and around Gaalkacyo with food and non-food items. Food security and livelihood partners will assist 36,000 people with food rations for two months. An additional 27,000 people will benefit from non-food items. WASH partners continue to respond, and have scaled up efforts to assist some 60,000 people with hygiene kits, aqua tabs and hygiene promotion activities and campaigns to minimize the impact of water borne diseases like cholera. ElectionsElections currently are taking place in Somalia. Under the country’s Provisional Federal Constitution, the mandates of the Federal Parliament and of the President of the Federal Republic will end this year. While universal elections are not yet possible, an electoral process has been developed to facilitate enhanced political participation.Voting for the members of the Upper House took place on 10 October, and voting for members of the House of the People took between 23 October and 10 November 2016, with a president to be elected on 30 November by members of both chambers of Parliament.The United Nations has been engaged with Somalia since 1991 to support its government and people to advance the cause of peace and reconciliation, and the international community has pledged to support the eastern African country in its efforts, including through the so-called ‘New Deal’ Somalia Compact, which sets out agreed goals for peacebuilding and statebuilding. read more

Nicola Sturgeon accused of scaremongering over Brexit powers deal

Adam Tomkins said Ms Sturgeon had reined in her Brexit ministerCredit:PA Nicola Sturgeon has been accused of “scaremongering” after she claimed UK Government proposals to resolve the dispute over post-Brexit powers would “completely demolish” the principle of the devolution settlement.The Scottish Conservatives said it was “sad” to see the First Minister reduced to such tactics and accused her of “taking the reins” from Michael Russell, her Brexit minister, after he said an agreement was still “perfectly possible”.He claimed there was not much separating the two sides, while she was warning in a newspaper article of the danger of a future Tory government ripping up flagship Holyrood legislation.Adam Tomkins, Conservative spokesman on the constitution, said Mr Russell’s comments flew in the face of Ms Sturgeon’s scaremongering and highlighted “clear divisions in the SNP”.He added: “There is an entrenched position from Nicola Sturgeon and it’s obvious she has taken the reins. She should let her government agree a Brexit deal which works for Scotland and get on with her day job.”The Welsh government struck a deal last week while Ms Sturgeon insisted changes to the Brexit bill did not go far enough. michael russell Despite her stark warnings, Lord Hope of Craighead, formerly Scotland’s most senior judge, said the amended EU Withdrawal Bill came “very close” to respecting the devolution settlement and a deal was within reach. But Ms Sturgeon said the definition of “consent” in the amendment was “surreal and perverse” as it meant legislation would be deemed to be the subject of a “consent decision” whether Holyrood voted for or against a motion. The convener of cross-bench peers in the Lords will table further amendments on Monday in the hope of reaching an 11th hour deal.Ahead of further talks later this week, Ms Sturgeon wrote in the Sunday Herald: “After Brexit, the UK Government has made clear it wants the final say on many devolved policy areas which are currently subject to EU law – completely demolishing the principle at the heart of the devolution settlement endorsed democratically by the people of Scotland more than 20 years ago.”The Tories have now proposed amendments to the Bill which they say take account of our concerns. But, as ever, the devil is in the detail, and a careful reading of the small print betrays the reality of what we are being offered.”New amendments from the UK Government will introduce a “sunset clause” so that devolved powers returning to Westminster – in order to create common frameworks across the UK – do not stay there indefinitely.They also introduce a requirement for a “consent decision” at Holyrood before ministers can legislate in devolved areas. Mr Russell told the BBC’ Sunday Politics Scotland programme that was not “tolerable” and insisted that he and the First Minister were “singing from the same hymn sheet”.But he also said a deal could be done and said he would consider Lord Hope’s amendments.He added: “If these amendments are as positive and hopeful as I think they probably will be, then once I have seen them I’m happy to comment on them and I hope I can be very positive about them.”I don’t think there is a huge amount that separates us now. The issue is very, very clear – if we resolve that issue (of consent) there will be a deal.”A spokesman for the UK Government said it hoped the Scottish Government would sign up to the “sensible and pragmatic” compromise supported by the Welsh administration.

Thai king attends cremation of Leicester owner

first_imgThailand’s king presided over the cremation of former Leicester City owner and duty-free magnate Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha at a Buddhist temple Thursday in a ceremony that brought together the Thai business and political elites.The 60-year-old Thai founder of duty-free giant King Power died in October in a helicopter crash after watching his beloved football club play.His sudden death stunned Thais and football fans who followed his fairytale-like ascent, while also raising questions about the future of his company’s near-monopoly over Thailand’s duty-free sector.His weeklong funeral in November had royal sponsorship for three days and King Maha Vajiralongkorn presided over Thursday’s cremation rites at Wat Thepsirin, one of Bangkok’s oldest temples.Standing on an elevated podium, the king lit the fire for Vichai’s crematorium.Before the king’s arrival, Vichai’s elder son Apichet entered the temple with a shorn head wearing saffron robes — following the Buddhist tradition of the eldest son being temporarily ordained after the death of a patriarch.Leading the rest of the family was youngest son Aiyawatt, better known by his nickname “Top” and the vice chairman of Leicester City, carrying offerings.More than 40 players and members of Leicester City football club — including star striker Jamie Vardy, captain Wes Morgan and new manager Brendan Rodgers — arrived the day before from England to pay their final respects.Anutin Charnvirakul, leader of the Bhumjaithai Party and a prime ministerial candidate in elections being held on Sunday, stood with Vichai’s family, along with former politician-turned-sports mogul Newin Chidchob and national police chief Chakthip Chaijinda.The well-connected Vichai was Thailand’s fifth wealthiest man, and his four children stand to inherit a shopping empire now worth some $5.2 billion according to Forbes.His company’s rapid rise from a single downtown Bangkok store to commanding a near monopoly in the country’s airports can be attributed more to Vichai’s knack for winning — and keeping — the favour of Thailand’s elite.This includes the monarchy, whose links to him were reflected in the name of his company and the former king’s act of royally bestowing a surname which translates to “auspicious and prosperous light”.But in recent weeks, state-owned Airports of Thailand (AoT) is facing intense pressure to break up the monopoly after King Power’s hold on it ends in 2020, and a bidding auction is to start this year.Following outcry from rivals calling for the concession to be split up among different companies, Thailand’s junta chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha urged AoT to find “a suitable process to be fair”.On Monday, an AoT official told AFP it would postpone the release of its terms of reference for the bidding, and would “open for more recommendations …to comply with the government”.Thailand’s Mall Group, shopping empire Central Group — both backed by billionaires — are eyeing entry into duty-free while South Korean giant Lotte is also in the hunt.last_img read more

Politics inseparable from Street theatre

first_imgPolitics cannot be separated from street theatre as it is not just defined by its art but also by its intent, according to veteran thespians Sudhanva Deshpande and Moloyashree Hashmi.At the fourth edition of ‘Lila’s Prism lecture series’, the talk titled ‘Jan Natya Manch: Shaping a pocket (the resistance)’ was about introducing people to the nitty-gritties of street theatre group and how Janam made the medium as its own.Founded in 1973, Jana Natya Manch (People’s Theatre Front; Janam for short) is a New Delhi-based theatre company. Having done some 8,500 performances of nearly 100 plays, the group specialises in left-wing street theatre in Hindi. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf“Street theatre is about giving primacy to politics. Don’t do street theatre if you don’t have politics. We at Janam don’t define it just by its form, but also by its intent. Its biggest resource is imagination of audience,” said Deshpande, actor and director with Janam.But making sure that people don’t decipher his message wrong, he added, “Please remember it cannot be sloganeering alone too. Only sloganeering and attempting to run a message down people’s throat has neither worked before, nor will it work in future.”  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveWhile distinguishing street play from other forms, he says that it is an exact opposite of a play which has Naseeruddin Shah acting, who everyone admires and loves. “You like Naseeruddin Shah and you want to watch him. In street plays it is just the opposite. You don’t know us, forget about liking. On the contrary, we interrupt your life by performing in the middle of the road. Also, here we want you to watch us. You vote by your foot in this case,” said Deshpande. The group is known for taking on capitalism, deep-rooted patriarchy, and communalism through plays like ‘Halla Bol’, ‘Machine’, ‘Woh Bol Uthi’, ‘Aurat’ and ‘Dil Maange more Guru ji’.“When people ask don’t you feel scared about the things you say so openly in your play, I tell them that we have our plays in bastis (villages), industrial areas and in the so called down-trodden areas. Police and people with power, they don’t come to such places. And hence we are safe,” said Moloyashree, veteran theatre artiste and President of Janam. The evening also saw both talking about Founder of Janam Safdar Hashmi and his vision that is reflected in all the plays made under the group’s banner. An actor, director and communist playwright Hashmi was murdered in 1989,while performing his famous street play ‘Halla Bol’.“Safdar was someone unique. Can you believe he and Rakesh Saxena wrote ‘Machine’ in a single day. He could see the future. He was always there to perform for workers and would do all that he could to support their movement,” said Moloyoshree, wife of Safdar who to her credit have had performed ‘Machine’ over 1000 times now.Deshpande, who is also author of the book ‘Theatre of the streets: The Jan Natya Manch Experience’ was very blunt in saying that “art can’t change the world, especially if it’s a Bollywood movie.” He emphasized on the definition of artist and said: “You should understand that an artist is no solitary genius. He is no creator. He is just an intermediary who gives what he takes from society. It’s just that the form is different.” When asked about pedagogy and how to make sure that an actor is politically sensitised, Deshpande said, “Make them witness the lives of people living in the margins by walking through the streets of villages.“This is what we do with our actors while we are in the process of making plays, and it works,” he added.The Lila Lecture series includes 13 seminal conversation spread across August to December 2016 featuring 30 trailblazing practitioners of alternative institution-building.last_img read more

Calcutta HC judge bars journalists from entering her courtroom

first_imgKolkata: Calcutta High Court judge Samapti Chattopadhyay, who is hearing the Bongaon Municipality trust vote and other local body cases, on Wednesday barred journalists from entering her court room till further orders. At the commencement of the hearing on the Bongaon matter, Justice Chattopadhyay orally directed that reporters would not be allowed to be present in her court room, during hearing of cases, till further orders. Eleven BJP councillors had moved the high court claiming they had not been allowed to enter the municipal body office for participating in a ‘no trust’ vote against the chairman and that Justice Chattopadhyay’s earlier order on moving a no-confidence motion was not followed by the administration. The high court judge has recently pulled up the West Bengal government over several issues, including the manner of holding trust votes in municipal bodies and illegal filling up of water bodies. State-empanelled lawyers had on July 22 decided to not attend the court of Justice Chattopadhyay protesting her remarks against the West Bengal government, only to rescind the decision a day later.last_img read more

dock in the Mahoning Valley on Saturday night she vowed to bring back manufacturing jobs and helps small businesses Surrounded by the working-class voters who sided with rival Bernie Sanders last week in Michigan Clinton appealed to the blue-collar Democrats who supported her husband but have been wary of her "I will stand up for companies in Ohio" Clinton said her voice at times sounding hoarse from a primary that continues in earnest "I am really totally committed to bringing back manufacturing Im the only candidate on either side who actually has a plan to do that" Clintons host was a company founded in 1918 to provide parts for the Mahoning Valleys steel industry In recent years it has transitioned to high-tech manufacturing and is a tech incubator "The future of Youngstown is happening right here" said Democratic Rep Tim Ryan who represents Youngstown in Congress Yet his optimism is not widely shared in Ohio let alone the former manufacturing hubs Storefronts are boarded up Houses are abandoned Factories have mothballed wings if not completely shut down A deep sense of dread pervades "Being angry isnt necessarily bad Its what you do after youre angry that matters" Ryan said before comparing setbacksthe areas and Clintonsto a sporting loss "You watch film You figure out what you did wrong And then you put together a plan together so you dont lose again" Ryan said Clinton is trying to tap into a populism that has powered Sanders to wins Her pitch post-Michigan is deeply worker-focused and she is pitching herself more as an emotional pick than the wonk who rolled out a deeply considered manufacturing policy in Detroit "I will be a strong supporter of the American labor movement and unions" she vowed drawing cheers from the crowd standing under beams that once moved steel Clinton is still the likely nominee Her delegate count is outpacing Sanders and even in loss Clinton is still picking up the party activists who will crown the nominee this summer in Philadelphia But the storyline is not on her side She is trying to remedy the deep problems she faced in Michigan where she saw a 20-point lead evaporate in the final days of campaigning She ended up losing white voters by 15 points Exit polls found 81% younger votersthose under 30sided with Sanders too "Young voters all they know is Benghazi" shrugged Democratic Sen Sherrod Brown of Ohio a Clinton ally Michigan was a rout for sure and it left her campaign advisers frustrated They arent sure that they wont be feeling déjà vu when Ohio votes on Tuesday After all Ohio is like Michigan Technology has made manufacturing jobs less labor-intensive if not easier to outsource to cheaper workers abroad It leaves deep anxiety throughout the Rust Belt One number that keeps giving Clinton supporters concern is the level of resentment about trade policy In Michigan 57% of Democratic voters said trade takes away US jobs Clinton lost those voters by 15 percentage points That sentiment is unlikely to fade in Ohio where a shuttered Ford factory greets visitors leaving the Cleveland airport and pockets of cities look like Detroit Clintons backers are trying to beat back Sanders populism "She has the best thought-through trade and manufacturing policy" said Brown who is among his partys strongest voices on trade His endorsement of Clinton was a nod for union workers that she could be trusted But the same criticism that dogged her in Michigan on tradeespecially over the 1994 NAFTA trade billfollowed her to Ohio "It was 20 years ago It was her husband" Brown said He shakes his head suggesting that Clinton might have been opposed to the deal but stayed quiet so as not to embarrass her husband then-President Bill Clinton Others understand the gnashing over trade "Secretary Clinton has waffled back and forth on the TPP While she should not be judged by her husbands policies her husband was behind NAFTA and people do not forget those things" said Capri Cafaro a former state Senate Minority Leader and a Clinton ally A CNN poll released last week shows Clinton up 30 points in Ohio But she was similar ahead in Michigan and came up short "Its going to be closer than anybody expects But I think Hillary pulls it out" Cafaro said Even so some of Clintons supporters were far from confident "This" said Joe Schiavoni the Minority Leader in Ohios state Senate "is going to be a
