Rutgers football player arrested for alleged murder conspiracy

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailWABC-TV(NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.) — A Rutgers University football player was arrested and charged on Tuesday in connection to a murder plot, police said.Izaia Bullock, a junior linebacker, was accused of initiating a plan to kill “the family members of an acquaintance,” according to the Middlesex County prosecutor’s office.The office did not release any details about the alleged plot, but it said the “intended victims” weren’t affiliated with the New Brunswick, New Jersey-based university.Bullock, 22, was arrested after an investigation by the Rutgers University Police Department and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined he initiated the plot on Oct. 29, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement. He was charged with two counts of attempted murder in the first degree and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree.Rutgers dismissed Bullock from the team in the wake of the charges, and school officials said he could face disciplinary actions. He made his on-field debut in a game against Buffalo in September — the first and only game in which he played.Bullock previously attended Middlesex County College in Edison, New Jersey, about 25 miles southwest of Newark, where he wrote for the school’s newspaper, according to My Central Jersey, a local media outlet.“He published several stories in the school newspaper, Quo Vadis, and regularly attended the newspaper meetings,” Melissa Edwards, a journalism professor at Middlesex County College, told the outlet. “He was also quite outgoing and always made constructive comments in class. He expressed that his dream was to play football.”Bullock was being held at a New Jersey jail pending an initial court appearance. It’s unclear if he’d obtained an attorney.

George has 43 and 14 as Thunder hold off Jazz, 107-106

first_img Associated Press Tags: NBA/Utah Jazz FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Paul George had 43 points and 14 rebounds to help the Oklahoma City Thunder hold off the Utah Jazz for a 107-106 victory Saturday night.Jerami Grant and Steven Adams each scored 15 as the Thunder (21-10) won their fourth straight game and tied Denver for the best record in the Western Conference. Russell Westbrook had eight points on 3-for-17 shooting with 12 rebounds and nine assists.Rudy Gobert had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Jazz (16-18). Donovan Mitchell scored 20, Derrick Favors added 16 and Ricky Rubio had 12 points and 14 assists.Three nights after scoring 43 against Sacramento, George went 15 for 25 from the field and made five 3-pointers while dishing out six assists.George hit a jumper to extend Oklahoma City’s lead to 106-97, but the Jazz fought back on the strength of their defense. After a miss by Westbrook, Mitchell drove for a layup to make it 107-105. After Mitchell and Dennis Schroder exchanged steals, Westbrook fouled out trying to block Mitchell on a potential tying dunk with 1.5 seconds remaining.Mitchell was slow to get up after hitting the floor hard, and his first free throw rimmed out. Mitchell launched the second free throw high, apparently attempting to generate a long rebound, but it swished through for the final margin.Westbrook was on the bench with four fouls when Rubio made a 3-pointer to give the Jazz a 79-70 lead midway through the third quarter. George scored 18 points in the last 6:04 of the period — on everything from driving dunks to spinning 3s — to forge a 93-81 advantage after three free throws with five seconds left.In all, the Thunder outscored the Jazz 23-2 when everything went through George. He flexed while facing the Utah crowd on the baseline, he talked trash with Joe Ingles and he demanded the ball, even while drawing double-teams at times.George didn’t do it just by shooting. In the fourth quarter, Mitchell looked as though he was headed for a breakaway dunk and George somehow took the ball from him. A couple of plays later, the Jazz overplayed him and he deftly dropped the ball off to Adams for a dunk.George took some time getting in a rhythm after offseason knee surgery and the Thunder lost four straight. Since then, George has become nearly unstoppable. In his last nine games, he has averaged more than 32 points on 47 percent 3-point shooting.TIP-INSThunder: Westbrook picked up his fourth foul trying to get around Gobert’s pick with 7:33 left in the third, but the Thunder were actually outscored by 12 points when he was on the court. … Despite allowing several offensive rebounds down the stretch, the Thunder outrebounded the Jazz 51-44.Jazz: Even with a number of open looks, Utah didn’t make a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. … The Jazz hadn’t lost at home when getting more than 30 assists since Nov. 26, 2008. Utah had 35 assists.UP NEXTThunder: Host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.Jazz: Host the Portland Trail Blazers in the final Christmas Day game on Tuesday.

Eliud Kipchoge becomes first marathon runner to break the two hour mark

first_imgOctober 12, 2019 /Sports News – National Eliud Kipchoge becomes first marathon runner to break the two hour mark Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/Pavel1964(SEATTLE) — A feat once thought impossible, Eliud Kipchoge has become the first person to ever run a marathon in less than two hours even though it will not count as a world record.Kipchoge bested the two hour mark by 20 seconds for a final time of 1 hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds. Kipchoge was supported by 36 pacemakers and also had a pace car with a laser beam projecting his ideal position on the road which is one of the reasons why the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) will not verify Kipchoge’s time as a world record.“I’m feeling good,” Kipchoge told the Associated Press. “I’m the first man, I want to inspire many people that no human is limited.”Kipchoge ran at an average pace of 4 minutes and 33 seconds per mile throughout the entire race, according to the Associated Press.“We can make this world a beautiful world and a peaceful world,” he said, pointing out that the mission of his attempt went beyond athletics. “The positivity of sport, I want to make it a clean sport and an interesting sport.”Kipchoge reached his accomplishment in Prater Park in the Austrian capital of Vienna.It was his second attempt at breaking the two-hour barrier. He had previously missed the mark by only 26 seconds in Monza, Italy, in May 2017.Kipchoge won a gold medal in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and he also holds the official world record of 2 hours, 1 minute and 39 seconds.

Panoro Energy announces substantial oil discovery in Hibiscus Updip sidetrack

first_imgThe Hibiscus Updip oil discovery has been appraised by drilling a sidetrack (DHIBM-1ST1) to the northwest to test the lateral extent and structural elevation of the Gamba reservoir Image: The DHIMB-1 well was initially drilled in 116m of water to a vertical depth of 3,538m. Photo: Courtesy of Vee TEC from FreeImages. Panoro Energy is pleased to report a positive update on its drilling operation on the Hibiscus Updip well (DHIBM-1), located on Dussafu Marin Permit (Dussafu), offshore Gabon.John Hamilton, CEO of Panoro, commented: “Results of drilling at Hibiscus Updip have significantly exceeded expectations. Both the original wellbore and sidetrack have encountered oil columns with excellent reservoir properties and our estimate of gross recoverable oil at Hibiscus Updip is between 40 and 50 million barrels. Our phase 3 development plans to tie the nearby Ruche and Ruche NE fields back to the Adolo FPSO are now being expanded to include a possible fast-track development of the discovery. Additionally, this successful well enables us to further de-risk Gamba prospectivity in the Hibiscus area where we see significant additional potential. We are extremely pleased with the continued drilling success at Dussafu, and now look forward to the commencement of the production drilling phase at Tortue”.The DHIMB-1 well was initially drilled in 116 metres of water to a vertical depth of 3,538 metres. On August 30, 2019, Panoro announced an oil discovery in the pre-salt Gamba reservoir with plans to drill a sidetrack to appraise the extent of the Hibiscus Updip discovery.The Hibiscus Updip oil discovery has been appraised by drilling a sidetrack (DHIBM-1ST1) to the northwest to test the lateral extent and structural elevation of the Gamba reservoir. The sidetrack was drilled to a Total Depth (TD) of 3,500 metres, (3,049 metres True Vertical Depth Subsea (TVDSS)) approximately 1.1 km from the original wellbore and found a 33 metre oil column with 26 metres of oil pay in the Gamba reservoir with better reservoir character and a similar fluid level to that encountered in the vertical well, DHIBM-1.Panoro and the operator, BW Energy, estimate the gross recoverable resources discovered to be in the range of 40 to 50 million barrels of oil. Further upside potential exists in the wider Hibiscus area which will be the focus of future exploration drilling.The well will now be plugged and abandoned pending future appraisal and development activities.  The rig will then move to drill the first of four new oil production wells at the Tortue field.

Neptune Energy and Eserv partner for digitisation of Cygnus platform

first_imgThe partnership with Eserv is part of the first phase of Neptune Energy’s strategy to “digitise” its assets Neptune Energy partners with Eserv for digitisation of Cygnus platform. (Credit: Nico Franz from Pixabay) Neptune Energy today announced an exciting new partnership with 3D technology specialist, Eserv, as part of the ongoing digitalisation of Neptune’s assets including its operated Cygnus gas platform in the UK southern North Sea.Using 3D and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, a digital map of all three bridge-linked jackets was captured, enabling Neptune Energy to detect asset integrity issues early and plan fabric maintenance work on Cygnus.Specialist engineers and integrity experts now have the opportunity to carry out a significant amount of their traditional work from onshore, reducing the cost and environmental impacts associated with travelling offshore.The partnership with Eserv is part of the first phase of Neptune Energy’s strategy to “digitise” its assets and processes and enables remote subject matter expert advice for offshore personnel, and virtual visual inspections and site surveys.Neptune’s UK Managing Director, Alexandra Thomas, said: “We are excited to be early adopters of such innovative technologies which can enhance the efficiency and safety of our operations, reduce costs and offshore travel, and enable greater collaboration between our onshore and offshore teams.“The use of digital technologies is particularly valuable at this time, given restrictions on travel and the necessity for social distancing offshore.”The digital mapping of the Cygnus gas production platform, which is capable of producing approximately 6% of UK domestic gas demand, is one element of the partnership with Aberdeen-based Eserv. As part of an ongoing digital transition, onshore teams can take a virtual walkthrough of the entire platform, plan work and monitor changes in the physical structure, identifying potential issues early and accurately.The AI element of the technology is being “trained” to identify thousands of individual components, valves and other plant equipment, and is “learning” how to spot potential integrity issues including corrosion.Eserv’s Managing Director, Dan Millard, said: “Although remote and digital data solutions have come into their own this year due to travel and logistical restrictions, we have been advancing advocates of using 3D data to revolutionise the offshore maintenance and asset integrity space for a number of years now.“In fact our flagship AS-TEG, that brings new digital applications and workflows together, is the result of five years of continuous research and development.“As such it’s really gratifying for us to collaborate with a highly innovative and progressive operator such as Neptune Energy, supporting them to derive the benefits of this transformative platform: enhanced safety and efficiency, and reduced costs and environmental impact.” Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more
