They signed Cristiano Ronaldo when needing to give confidence and renewed enthusiasm to the squad, stepping up a level in Europe and maintaining the invincible aura in Italy.“The only way Napoli will take the Scudetto off Juventus is by signing Lionel Messi. Either that, or Juve gift it to them.”

New Delhi: The Supreme Court allowed CPI (M) leader Mohd Yusuf Tarigami to go back to his home state Jammu and Kashmir. A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer said the former MLA does not need any permission to go home if doctors at AIIMS allow him. The former MLA alleged that his vehicle has been taken away and he will be confined to his home. The ailing leader was on September 9 shifted to AIIMS following the apex court order. The top court had said Tarigami should be shifted “at the earliest” to “the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi, from Srinagar, where he was under house arrest”. He was put under house arrest on August 5 after the Centre abrogated special status to Jammu and Kashmir under the Constitution.

Besides mentioning Tarigami’s health condition in the affidavit, Yechury had also referred to other issues that have arisen in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370. The court had earlier made it clear that Yechury was allowed to visit Jammu and Kashmir to meet his party colleague only as attention had been drawn to an interim application seeking the court’s orders to bring Tarigami to AIIMS.
Sam Marder is Ohio State’s all-time home run, RBI and walks leader, but she might be Ohio State’s all-time goof ball as well.Her jabbing jokes, ribbon dancing routines and affable personality do not help her hit home runs, but it is apparent she doesn’t need help with that.“I think the great part about this team is that we have so much fun with each other,” Marder said. “They all came to my ribbon dancing routine and we are always playing jokes on each other. We are a fun and relaxed team.”Off the field, Marder encourages some friendly pranks.“Megan (Miller) and I were roommates one weekend on the road and that was not fair,” she said. “We filled a bucket of ice and played a joke on freshman (Megan) Coletta. When she opened the door she got showered with all this ice. Then we ran away.”Though this two-time captain and two-time All-American loves to entertain her teammates, she acknowledges that what you see is not always what you get. “I definitely have two personalities and I like to compare myself to Beyonce calling herself Sasha Fierce,” Marder said. “While off the field I am really light-hearted and joking around. On the field I am very focused, intense and driven. That is the only way I can play.”Coach Linda Kalafatis acknowledges Marder’s split personality.“She is smart, passionate, creative, weird and goofy,” Kalafatis said. “But, there is an intensity and passion on the field that you don’t necessarily know of off the field.”When co-captain Courtney Pruner was asked to talk about Marder’s personality, she muttered, “Oh God.”Pruner spoke about Marder’s humble personality, but sometimes she can take it too far.“Anytime we get the chance to make fun of her we can,” she said.When it comes to softball, Marder likes to mesh different parts of her personality to guide the team to success, part of her job as captain.“I try to lead by example,” Marder said. “It is important to make sure our team is loose and relaxed, while at the same time, mentally prepared to play.”Marder is not one to stray away from who she is. People don’t have to be at a softball practice to catch a glimpse of the lovable goof ball.When the team plays on the Big Ten Network, she claims she is chosen to read the introductions because she is the most attractive on the team.In addition, Marder represented the softball team by performing rhythmic gymnastics, otherwise known as ribbon dancing, for Buckeyes Got Talent.“The nerve to get up there and be that silly is remarkable,” Kalafatis said.The song she chose was Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”While the regional tournament approaches, the team will begin its ascent to its ultimate goal, Oklahoma City.The Buckeyes will host the Kentucky Wildcats Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones holds the Big Ten Championship trophy after OSU’s 59-0 win over Wisconsin in the conference title game on Dec. 6 in Indianapolis.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorINDIANAPOLIS — He waited to say it, but Jeff Heuerman made it clear whether or not he feels Ohio State should make the first-ever College Football Playoff.“I’ve kept my mouth shut about that for a very long time, but I’m done with that,” the senior tight end said after the Buckeyes locked up their 35th Big Ten Championship. “We’re definitely one of the top four teams in the country.”OSU — ranked No. 5 in the College Football Playoff standings — shutout No. 13 Wisconsin, 59-0, in the Big Ten title game Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium, but all four teams ranked ahead of the Buckeyes won over the weekend as well.But the Buckeyes’ win came under unusual circumstances, as the player starting the game at quarterback was third on the depth chart two weeks before the season started. Saturday’s win also came less than a week after the team learned of the death of walk-on defensive lineman Kosta Karageorge.Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones — starting in place of the injured redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett — said the win was a “huge statement” for the playoff selection committee.“I mean, we played a great, great team, the No. 2 defense in the country,” Jones said after the game. “We put up 59 points on them.”OSU also found a way to stymie Wisconsin redshirt-junior running back Melvin Gordon — the nation’s top rusher this season. The Buckeyes held Gordon to just 76 yards on the ground, and held him without a touchdown for the first time since Wisconsin’s win over Western Illinois in its second game of the season.With dominating numbers on both sides of the ball, Heuerman said he simply doesn’t see a logical scenario that would keep OSU out of the playoffs.“Come in here and play the 13th-ranked team in the country, No. 1 in the Big Ten in defense, come in here and put up those kind of numbers,” Heuerman said. “Defensively you look at what we did tonight with a Heisman Trophy candidate (Gordon) who’s held to 76 yards and didn’t put up one single point, I don’t know how you don’t put us in the top four, honestly.”OSU coach Urban Meyer — who won two national titles under the BCS-bowl format while he was the coach at Florida — said the selection committee has a difficult task, but added he feels like the Buckeyes are playing as well as the other top teams in the country.“All I can speak to is I’ve been around teams that have competed and won national championships,” Meyer said after the game. “This team, the way it’s playing right now, is one of the top teams in America.”Coming into the game, OSU was ranked behind No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 Texas Christian University and No. 4 Florida State. With all four of those teams winning along with the Buckeyes, OSU would have to jump one of them in order to make the playoffs.Confronted with the idea of missing out on a chance to compete for a national championship, Heuerman stressed that he feels the Buckeyes deserve to be in the top four.“I don’t even want to think about not being in the top four,” He said. “Like I said, I think we’re a top-four team in the country, I don’t think there’s any doubt about that and the College Football (Playoff) committee, they watched that game, I don’t know how any of them say we’re not.”Heuerman added the Buckeyes’ big win came against a top-notch opponent.“We didn’t come in and play a slouch of a football team today, they were a good football team,” he said. “And the way we came in and executed, it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen, honestly. And like I said, I don’t think there’s any way you don’t put us in the top four.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to learn their postseason fate on Sunday. The College Football Playoff selection show is set to begin at 12:30 p.m.The College Football Playoff rankings were decided by a panel of 12 members, including Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, Lt. Gen. Mike Gould and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. In total, the panel is set to consist of 13 members, but former Mississippi and NFL quarterback Archie Manning is taking a leave of absence because of health concerns.The top four teams at season’s end are scheduled to compete in the College Football Playoff.

So there was no excuse and they look only criticize the football part.”It remains to be seen if the World Cup winner will adopt a similar approach with United for the upcoming season.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 6, 2016 – The Leaders Debate was a fierce challenge last night as Rufus Ewing, Sharlene Robinson and Oswald Skippings aimed to woo any undecided voters through their answers to questions which came from moderators and the audience.Reputation and Integrity, Experience and Ability, Fact or Fiction and Vision for the country were among the broad subjects coming through a variety of questions from Tremmaine Harvey, Trevor Musgrove and Kenrick Walters who moderated the three hour PTV & Shaun Malcolm organized debate.PNP Leader, Rufus Ewing spent much of his time being double-teamed and defending or explaining the accomplishments of his administration over the past four years – he warned voters not to buy into the ‘doom and gloom’ messages from his opponents and touted accomplishments including the economic standing and health care model of the TCI as being top and envies of the region.PDM Leader, Sharlene Robinson, the lone lady on the panel directed her focus to the PNP mainly, and on several occasions chided the premier for complaining about the British; for keeping important information to himself; reminding that the PNP is the reason for UK intervention and the need for a bail-out loan and essentially calling his leadership, failed.She told voters that if their lives are not better, to vote for change. PDA Leader, Oswald Skippings reflected on his two terms as Chief Minister with a record of building sports, education, saving a straddled economy in 1988 and with ideas on attracting inward investment.Mr. Skippings spoke to the voters about his experience and effectiveness to get the British to do more about national security and to uncover the problems of what he believes is a crippled health care system.Tonight, another debate to air on Ch2 on the Digicel network; it features the All Island At Large Candidates, well except for Michael Misick who in a press release explained that he will not participate because he feels all independent candidates should have the opportunity. Misick said to leave the three district independent candidates out; namely: Valarie Jennings; his pal, McAllister Hanchell and JJ Parker – is disadvantageous to the trio and he will not support the face off.

In this file photo taken on January 14, 2015 an armed police officer walks past the Cumhuriyet daily newpaper building Istanbul. Photo: AFPAmnesty International on Thursday accused the Turkish government of creating a “chilling climate of fear” across society and curtailing the work of human rights activists since a failed 2016 coup.The rights group said freedom of expression and the right to a fair trial have been “decimated” under the state of emergency introduced five days after the attempted putsch on 15 July 2016.More than 1,300 associations and foundations have been shut down under the measures.In addition, more than 140,000 public sector employees have been sacked or suspended including judges over alleged links to putschists or Kurdish militants.Meanwhile, some 50,000 people have been taken into custody on terror charges.Last week parliament approved the seventh extension of the emergency laws which Amnesty said had undermined the country’s “once vibrant independent civil society”.The main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) staged nationwide rallies to protest the extension, with demonstrators in Istanbul shouting “No to emergency rule” and “Rights, law and justice”.Ankara insists that it faces multiple terror threats and that the measures do not affect citizens’ everyday lives.In a report titled “Weathering the storm: Defending human rights in Turkey’s climate of fear”, Amnesty lambasted the authorities’ attacks on rights activists and their “abusive” use of the criminal justice system.“A chilling climate of fear is sweeping across Turkish society,” the report said.The group cited examples of individuals it believes were being targeted and unfairly imprisoned including that of civil society activist Osman Kavala, who has been in prison since October.Amnesty has come under pressure itself since Taner Kilic, then the group’s chairman in Turkey, was taken into custody last June.Kilic denies charges of belonging to the movement led by US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey accuses of ordering the 2016 coup bid.“Under the cloak of the state of emergency, Turkish authorities have deliberately and methodically set about dismantling civil society, locking up human rights defenders, shutting down organisations and creating a suffocating climate of fear,” Amnesty’s Europe director, Gauri van Gulik, said in a statement.Amnesty also highlighted “unfair” restrictions on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) events in Turkey, with a ban in effect in the capital Ankara since November.“The blanket bans on activities threaten the very existence of these organisations and reverse these recent progressive steps to counter prevailing homophobia and transphobia,” Amnesty wrote.
email@example.com Mayor Bowser’s new crime legislation would allow increased police presence and surveillance by both police and business owners. (Twitter Photo)Mayor Muriel Bowser opened the calendar year touting the benefits of Council and resident support for her reduced crime legislation, “Safer, Stronger D.C.” despite a tenuous relationship between law enforcement and residents in many metropolitan areas. In a package initially introduced in August to settle community disruption, Bowser’s proposal has yet to be voted on by Council members.Included in Bowser’s proposal are an increased police presence in designated communities, getting tough on repeat violent offenders, offering grants to small businesses to secure video surveillance, reduced time in prison for inmates with good behavior, and providing law enforcement with additional tools.On Jan. 4, Bowser criticized the D.C. Council for not acting quickly to enact her crime bill. “I think the Council just hasn’t acted, and we’re calling on them to act on the public safety legislation,” Bowser said. “So far as I know, there hasn’t been any robust discussion among the council following the September hearing, and we’re in January.”Critics of the proposal, like Ward 8 resident Gerald Stanton, cite an emotionalism and disconnect in the document that provides scarce data and poor insight into how best to combat crime.“All I’m reading is police presence, manpower, crime lab, and equipping local businesses to identify potential and definite criminals. Are we supposed to have our entire neighborhood under surveillance and profile?” Stanton asked. “Bowser wants to add revolving 12-hour shifts and bring in retired police to weed out criminals, something the rest of the nation is trying to move away from.”D.C. Council Judiciary Chairman Kenyan McDuffie said he would not engage in finger pointing regarding the status of the legislation, though he was troubled by certain aspects of the bill, including the ability of law enforcement to conduct warrantless searches of violent offenders on probation or parole. There was also concern about allowing police to hold some released offenders for 72 hours.“We do plan to take the elements of her proposal that make sense,” McDuffie told the Washington City Paper. “But unfortunately, many elements of the mayor’s plan are not evidence-based or data-driven.”During the last year, the city has witnessed a return to violent crimes, many documented on public transportation. The 162 homicides in the city, an uptick of 54 percent from December 2014 has left residents and city officials grappling with how best to address crime amid growing concerns over police misconduct.“The continuing problem with the Bowser administration is the belief that they can run the city from the top-down without asking and actually utilizing the residents to address issues. There are other ways of addressing crime that does not entail the police,” Stanton said. “When you talk law enforcement in a Black city, you need to ensure you aren’t asking parents to give you license to shoot down their kids.”

13Mar Rep. Hall takes action to block ‘devastating’ Green New Deal The House Energy Committee today approved a resolution introduced by state Rep. Matt Hall to oppose the Green New Deal introduced at the federal level.Hall’s House Resolution 41 calls for Michigan to oppose the so-called Green New Deal outlined in U.S. House Resolution 109 and U.S. Senate Resolution 59. It was approved by the House Energy Committee, 9-7 votes.“Attempts to label this mandate an ‘economic stimulus package’ only demonstrate how out of touch congressional leadership is with the industries that keep our nation’s economy strong,” Hall said. “This plan would be devastating to the automotive and manufacturing economies Michigan depends on. Not only will this Green New Deal cost taxpayers as much as $93 trillion, it would also cost many of them their jobs.”The plan outlined in the Green New Deal calls for taxpayer dollars to be spent on public works projects to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions in 10 years. In addition to climate goals, the plan includes far-reaching social promises, such as providing a basic income for able-bodied adults unwilling to work.“We need smarter, evidence-based regulatory practices that protect and promote our way of life here in Michigan,” Hall said. “Not only is this proposal based solely on lofty and unachievable goals, it’s patently hostile to traditional American principles.”Hall’s resolution next advances to the House floor for consideration.
