AUSTIN, TX – OCTOBER 10: Bevo, the mascot of the Texas Longhorns, stands in his corner during a game against the Colorado Buffaloes on October 10, 2009 at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas. Texas won 38-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Tuesday night, ahead of the Sugar Bowl, there was an incident between the mascots for Texas and Georgia. Bevo, the Longhorns mascot, charged Uga, the Bulldogs mascot.Luckily, nobody was seriously injured. But it was a scary scene for those in attendance.Video of the incident went viral. As you’ll see, it’s actually surprising that Bevo didn’t accidentally hook anyone with his horns while on his way to Uga.Check it out:Bevo just came after Uga X and the Sugar Bowl has officially begun. pic.twitter.com/aUFvRkbEwb— Mike Reiter (@Mike_Reiter) January 2, 2019Wednesday, PETA issued a press release, calling for both Texas and Georgia to end the practice of having live mascots. They want the schools to just use human mascots instead.Their main beef? They think it’s “indefensible” that the animals are brought from game to game to be “paraded” in front of fans.So … @peta is calling for Bevo and Uga to retire after the Texas and Georgia mascots got into a little dust up before the Sugar Bowl.Seriously, this is a real life press release. pic.twitter.com/dpK2Ogbg4n— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) January 3, 2019It’s unclear if either school will respond – but it’s a fair bet they won’t be changing their ways. Bevo and Uga are two of the most beloved mascots in college football.As for the game itself, Texas scored an upset win over Georgia. Bevo set the tone from before kickoff.
PASADENA, CA – JANUARY 01: Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer and wife Shelley Meyer celebrate after the Ohio State Buckeyes win the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2019 in Pasadena, California. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)There can’t be too many people more thrilled for Ohio State’s dominant Week 4 performance than Urban Meyer. After the Buckeyes beat Miami (OH) 76-5, he just couldn’t help but share his joy with the world.Taking to Twitter, Meyer tweeted a very familiar phrase. He wrote, “Best thing about 4-0…” and allowed everyone to respond with “The chance to go 5-0.”Meyer, of course, has plenty of experience going 4-0 and 5-0 at Ohio State.The former Buckeyes head coach did so in five of his seven seasons there. Best thing about 4-0…— Urban Meyer (@CoachUrbanMeyer) September 22, 2019Last week, after Ohio State’s blowout win over Indiana, Meyer made a similar remark. He tweeted, “Best thing about 3-0…” and let his followers fill in the blank.Ohio State got off to a bit of a slow start in the first quarter, allowing Miami to take a 5-0 lead. But after J.K. Dobbins scored a touchdown for the Buckeyes, quarterback Justin Fields took the reins from there.Fields scored a whopping six touchdowns in the second quarter. He had four through the air and another two on the ground. It was the most touchdowns by a Buckeyes player ever for a single quarter.First-year head coach Ryan Day is off to a terrific start to his head coaching career. You can bet that Urban Meyer will be cheering him on all the way to the end.
zoom Britain’s independent ship repairer, Burgess Marine has entered into a long-term agreement with Mainprize Offshore to initially build two 25m wind farm support vessels; MO2 an MO3.Mainprize Offshore has also taken out options on a further two vessels. The deal is to be financed by Close Brothers.Burgess Marine has developed a new concept called ‘Sure Build’, the first beneficiary of which will be Mainprize Offshore with the build of their vessel MO2.Nicholas Warren, Burgess Marine’s Managing Director said: “For many years we’ve watched yards make small fortunes, then fail, or Operators make big investments which have then been seized or withheld by administrators. We wanted to offer a ‘piece of mind alternative’ to the industry. Something different. Something sensible. This low risk low margin model has got to be the way to go in an industry so inherently full of risk. The team at Close Brothers have been second-to-none and so very easy to work with; between us we’ve a great product and we look forward to many years of success.”Burgess Marine intends to launch ‘Sure Build’ to the market at the Seawork International 2014 exhibition in Southampton next month, with the signing of MO2 taking place on the company’s exhibition stand on June 10.Bob Mainprize, Mainprize Offshore’s Owner and Managing Director said: “We obviously look forward to working closely with Nick and the team at Burgess throughout the build of MO2 – but perhaps more importantly we are looking forward to the development of very long and very fruitful mutually beneficial relationship. Our product really is leading the field and business remains very brisk, we’re all pushing our hardest to have MO2 at Seawork next year and safely in a customer’s hands shortly thereafter.”June 9, 2014
Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday expressed shock over the demolition of a Guru Ravidas temple in New Delhi. Banerjee said she could understand the Dalits’ anguish since the Guru himself had visited the temple and stayed there. “We are shocked that the Guru Ravidas temple in Delhi was demolished and understand his supporters’ anguish, as the Guru had himself visited and stayed there,” Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle this evening.

The shrine symbolises the Dalits’ struggle for their rights and must be rebuilt,” Banerjee added. The issue has taken a political hue with various parties demanding that the temple be reconstructed either at the same spot in Tughlakabad forest area or at an alternative location.
MONTREAL — A Montreal school board says it will review its enrolment process after dozens of parents slept overnight in frigid weather outside four of its elementary schools to secure their children a coveted kindergarten spot.English Montreal School Board spokesman Michael Cohen said today camp-outs have been common for decades outside one elementary school, but the board will take a fresh look at the practice now that it is spreading.Cohen says that after years of declining enrolment, the school board serving anglophone Montrealers will take in at least 250 additional students next fall compared with the current school year.He says the schools that are in high demand offer a strong bilingual program allowing graduates to function in French and English, giving them an edge over their unilingual peers.Cohen says that despite criticism that the system is unfair to those who don’t have the means to camp outside a school, it is supported by parents.He says people have long suggested a lottery process for enrolment at the school where camp-outs have been the norm for decades — Royal Vale — but the idea was repeatedly rejected by the school’s governing board.The Canadian Press
Investigators are interested in speaking with anyone who may have been near the scene of either fire, in the Highway 29/Hannaford Road area or along the Golf Course Road on March 30, 2018 between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. Anyone with information is asked to call their local police or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The RCMP have not released any new details into the disappearance of a Charlie Lake man whose house burned to the ground the same night he was last seen.North District RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Madonna Saunderson said this morning that police will not be releasing any more information about their investigation into the disappearance of 55-year-old John Banky, who has not been seen since a fire occurred at his home on Hannaford Road in the Charlie Lake area. The RCMP were called out to a report of a fire at Banky’s home at around 3:15 a.m. on March 30th. Police said that Banky was not found at the home, but that his late model red Toyota Tundra pickup was found on fire on the road heading to Lakepoint Golf and Country Club at around 6:30 that same morning. Friends of Banky’s concerned for his well-being began posting over the Easter long weekend asking whether Banky had turned up over the weekend. A Facebook said that Bank’y dog had turned up on the morning of Monday, April 2nd, though that hasn’t been confirmed by police.
Nizamabad (Telangana): Turmeric and sorghum farmers in large numbers have pitch-forked into the poll arena and are setting the political narrative in Nizamabad constituency of Telangana, giving a new twist to the re-election campaign of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Raos daughter K Kavitha. The constituency,where these crops are grown in a big way, hit the headlines after about 170 farmers filed nominations for the April 11 Lok Sabha elections in protest, alleging that the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi failed to ensure Minimum Support Price for turmeric and red jowar (sorghum) produce and in getting the Turmeric Board established. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details TRS Rajya Sabha member D Srinivass son D Arvind is contesting from BJP, while AICC Secretary Madhu Yashki Goud is in the fray from Congress in Nizamabad. TRS won eight out of the nine Assembly segments in the Nizamabad Lok Sabha constituency in the 2018 Assembly polls. The sitting MP said despite her repeated representations to the Centre, the NDA Government failed to set up the Board in Nizamabad. “Is it I who gives the Turmeric Board or the NDA government? I request farmers to question BJP leaders on the issue. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday I tried my level best to persuade the centre for the Board,” Kavitha had said at a public meeting. Gangadhar Baddam, a farmer who filed his nomination, said the TRS Government ‘failed’ to deliver on its poll promises such as support price for turmeric and red jowar. He further said despite several agitations, the Government did not heed to the demands and alleged that it even tried to suppress the stirs. He alleged that ruling TRS leaders threatened them with dire consequences if they contested the polls en masse. “We are contesting in the election as a mark of protest. The TRS failed to deliver us the promises it made during the 2014 polls. They promised Turmeric Board for the regions. It could not do it. It also failed to get us the minimum support price for turmeric and red jowar,” Gangadhar said, adding, the villages of all the 170 contestants are supporting their move. TRS leaders from the constituency could not be reached for the partys stand on the allegations. Madhu Goud said he is confident of winning the polls, given his earlier track record of developing the constituency. He was an MP for two terms from 2004 to 2014. “It is my strength first (for winning this election) and secondly the false promises made by Kavitha (of TRS party). The nominations of nearly 200 farmers reflect her failure as an MP. There is video evidence where she said she will not seek votes if she failed to ensure setting up Turmeric Board in the region,” Goud told PTI. He further said she also failed to open units of Nizam Sugar factories that are non-functional in the region for several years. Goud alleged that the TRS and BJP are hand in glove. The sitting TRS Rajya Sabha MP’s son is the BJP candidate here. The Chief Minister’s daughter is contesting on the TRS ticket. What proof do you require, he asked. Arvind said the growing ‘nationalism’ among the people would be one of the keys to success. He is confident of the ‘ground work’ he carried out during the past 18 months in the constituency in nurturing it. “It is majorly Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image, the amount of ground work I carried out and Kavithas failures,” he says, noting her ‘failure’ to get the Turmeric Board established. The constituency has total of 15.53 lakh voters. The Election Commission said polls in Nizamabad would be conducted through paper ballot as there are 185 candidates, a number which is much higher that what the EVMs can accommodate.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A U.S. judge in Alaska says President Donald Trump exceeded his authority when he reversed a ban on offshore drilling in vast parts of the Arctic Ocean and dozens of canyons in the Atlantic Ocean.Judge Sharon Gleason in a ruling late Friday threw out Trump’s executive order that overturned the ban implemented by President Barack Obama.The drilling bans were a key part of Obama’s environmental legacy. Trump reversed them in April 2017.A message left Saturday for the Department of Justice was not immediately returned.Gleason said presidents have the power under a federal law to remove certain lands from development, but could not revoke those removals.The Associated Press
OTTAWA — BlackBerry is getting $40 million in federal funding to help it develop technologies for self-driving cars.The company is putting $300 million of its own money into the initiative, expected to create 800 jobs over the next decade at BlackBerry’s campus in the Ottawa suburb of Kanata, as well as support 300 existing jobs there.The one-time smartphone leader is now working on advanced software for autonomous vehicles and will use federal money for software development and skills training for workers.BlackBerry says its QNX software is already in tens of millions of cars, guiding systems related to driver assistance, hands-free features and entertainment consoles.During an event this morning, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the money is a sign the government has the backs of Canadian tech companies who want to lead in a new economy.Trudeau says his government will support companies both large and small looking to take risks in a growing and transforming global economy.

Analysts had estimated an adjusted profit of 12 cents per share for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters.The company’s revenue in the fourth quarter was US$835 million, down from US$956 million in the comparable period of 2013.Goldcorp says it will strive to increase its gold reserves while keeping costs contained over the coming year.“While we were unsuccessful in that regard this (past) year, this is a matter of timing more than anything else,” said Jeannes. “We have a number of exciting exploration developments throughout the portfolio that leave us well positioned for gold reserve growth in the year ahead.”Most of the major players in the Canadian mining sector have been striving to trim expenses in light of sagging prices for precious metals.John Thornton, chairman of Barrick Gold Corp., said Thursday that he plans to transform the gold miner into a leaner, more focused company. Barrick has taken billions in losses recently, including a writedown on the value of its massive Pascua-Lama project in South America, which was billions over budget before it was put on ice.For the full year, Goldcorp’s revenue dropped to $3.4 billion last year from $3.6 billion in 2013. Its net loss was reduced to $2.16 billion from $2.71 billion in 2013, when the company recorded $2.67 billion of asset impairments.In January, Goldcorp agreed to pay Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (TSX:AEM) $43 million for its stake in Probe Mines Ltd. (TSXV:PRB).

OSU won, 11-7.Credit: Brett Amadon / Lantern reporterThe Ohio State men’s lacrosse team dropped its second straight game this weekend.Unable to get things going, OSU (1-4, 0-0) lost as the Hofstra Pride (3-2, 0-0) defeated the Buckeyes 7-5 Saturday at Hempstead, N.Y.Despite getting off to a good start after freshman midfielder Sean Giampietro scored his first career goal at the 9:54 mark of the first quarter, the Buckeyes hit a wall.OSU went scoreless for more than 30 minutes and Hofstra scored four straight goals to take a 4-1 lead into halftime.Coming out of the break, the Buckeyes were unable to cut into the Pride’s lead as both teams traded man-up goals in the third. The man-up goal for junior midfielder Turner Evans was the Buckeyes’ first of the season.OSU was able to generate some offense in the fourth quarter, outscoring Hofstra 3-2, including two late goals from junior midfielder Jesse King and junior attackman Reegan Comeault , but it was too little too late as the Pride held on for the 7-5 victory.The win increased Hofstra’s winning streak to three games.Offensively, Hofstra was led by sophomore attackman Sam Llinares , who tallied three goals and an assist, and senior attackman Torin Varn, who scored twice for the Pride.The Buckeyes got a good performance from Evans, who had two goals and an assist. His 10 assists on the season lead OSU. King’s first quarter assist on Giampietro’s goal was the 100th point of his career at OSU, making him the 28th Buckeye to hit that mark.Freshman midfielder Jake Withers won 10 out of 15 faceoffs for the Buckeyes, who will look for more of that when they travel to Denver next week to take on the No. 12 Denver Pioneers.

AL-QAEDA’S TOP commander in Mali has been killed, Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno said Friday, in what would be one of the most significant blows to the rebels in the seven-week French-led intervention against Islamist insurgents.Several newspapers in Abou Zeid’s native Algeria had reported his death and Washington had described the reports as “very credible”.Deby said Abou Zeid, the Mali-based operative in Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), was killed in deadly fighting between Chadian troops and Islamist fighters on February 22.Jihadis’ base destroyed “On February 22, we lost several soldiers in the Ifogha mountains after destroying the jihadists’ base. This was the first time there was a direct confrontation with the jihadists,” he said.“Our soldiers killed two jihadist chiefs including Abou Zeid,” said Deby, whose elite forces are among the best desert troops on the continent and have played a key role in the offensive to liberate northern Mali.Algeria’s independent Ennahar TV reported earlier this week that Abou Zeid was killed in northern Mali along with 40 other Islamist militants.In Washington, a US official speaking on condition of anonymity said reports of his death seemed “very credible” and that if Abou Zeid was indeed slain “it would be a significant blow to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.”French officials have so far reacted with caution, with President Francois Hollande saying Friday: “Reports are circulating, it is not up to me to confirm them.”The killing of Abou Zeid, a ruthless militant linked with kidnappings and executions of Westerners, would be a major success for French forces, who intervened in Mali in mid-January to help oust Islamist rebels then in control of the north.Algeria’s El Khabar newspaper reported Friday that authorities there had carried out DNA tests to try to confirm Abou Zeid’s death.“The security services are comparing DNA taken from two close relatives of Abou Zeid with samples taken from the remains of a body supplied by French forces”, it said.French and west African troops have been hunting down rebels they dislodged from northern Mali’s main cities following a lightning advance against the Islamists.Series of brutal kidnappingsAbou Zeid, 46, whose real name is Mohamed Ghedir, was often seen in the cities of Timbuktu and Gao after the Islamists took control of northern Mali last year and sparked fears the region could become a haven for extremists.An Algerian born near the border with Libya, Abou Zeid was a former smuggler who embraced radical Islam in the 1990s and became one of AQIM’s key leaders.He was suspected of being behind a series of brutal kidnappings in several countries, including of British national Edwin Dyer, who was abducted in Niger and executed in 2009, and of 78-year-old French aid worker Michel Germaneau, who was executed in 2010.Abou Zeid was believed to be holding a number of Western hostages, including four French citizens kidnapped in Niger in 2010.He was thought to have about 200 seasoned fighters under his command, mainly Algerians, Mauritanians and Malians, who were well-equipped and highly mobile.An Algiers court last year sentenced Abou Zeid in absentia to life in prison for having formed an international armed group involved in the kidnapping of foreigners. Five other members of his family were jailed for 10 years each.He was seen as a true religious fanatic and more uncompromising than some other leaders of north African armed Islamist groups, such as Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the mastermind of January’s attack on an Algerian natural-gas facility that left 37 foreign hostages dead.On the ground in Mali Friday, Malian troops arrested about 50 people near Gao on an island in the Niger river that was used as a hideout by armed Islamists, military sources told AFP.- © AFP, 2013Explainer: What is happening in Mali?
La Voie Lactée contient plus de planètes que d’étoilesContrairement à ce que les astronomes pensaient jusqu’alors, il y aurait plus de planètes que d’étoiles dans notre galaxie, d’après une étude tout juste publiée.C’est une découverte surprenante que vient tout juste d’annoncer une équipe d’internationale d’astronomes. D’après les travaux que ceux-ci ont mené, il y aurait plus de planètes que d’étoiles dans notre galaxie. Des étoiles entourées de planètes, c’est donc “la règle, plutôt que l’exception” au sein de la Voie lactée, résume Arnaud Cassan, de l’Institut d’astrophysique de Paris, principal auteur de l’article qui paraît dans la revue scientifique britannique Nature. Selon les calculs statistiques de son équipe, il y aurait ainsi une proportion moyenne de 1,6 planète par étoile dans notre galaxie.À lire aussiEn orbite depuis 719 jours, cet avion spatial bat un record… mais on ignore pourquoi”Les planètes sont d’autant plus nombreuses qu’elles sont petites”, précise M. Cassan. En effet, d’après les estimations de ces astronomes, 17% des étoiles ont une planète d’une masse comparable à celle de Jupiter, 52% des planètes de la taille de Neptune et 62% des “supers-Terre”, des planètes cinq à dix fois plus massives que la Terre. “Il semble qu’il y ait littéralement des milliards de planètes ayant des masses similaires à la Terre en orbite autour d’étoiles dans la Voie lactée”, indique son collègue Daniel Kubas dans un communiqué relayé par l’AFP.Alors que l’équipe d’Arnaud Cassan s’est intéressée aux étoiles solitaires, une autre étude également parue hier dans Nature montre que 1% des étoiles binaires pourraient avoir une exoplanète géante en orbite autour du couple. Notre galaxie compterait des millions d’exoplanètes de ce type, ayant plusieurs soleils.Le 12 janvier 2012 à 12:54 • Maxime Lambert

WASHINGTON — House Republicans and Democrats bickered heatedly Monday over whether the GOP tax bill truly helps the middle class, as the Ways and Means Committee kicked off a marathon session to amend and vote on the far-reaching legislation President Donald Trump hopes to sign into law by year’s end.Republicans focused on findings by Congress’ nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation that the bill would lower taxes across all income levels over the next several years.“Clearly this is helping real people. It’s helping teachers, it’s helping students, it’s helping struggling families that are living paycheck to paycheck,” said GOP Rep. Erik Paulsen of Minnesota.Democrats returned repeatedly to a section of the analysis showing taxes would actually go up beginning in 2023 for some 38 million taxpayers or families making $20,000 to $40,000 a year.“There are a lot of people expecting a tax cut who would be big losers under this bill,” proclaimed Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell of New Jersey. “This is a joke and you’ve got to face up to it.”

A fire ignited in the attached garage of a Vancouver house Tuesday evening, and firefighters were able to extinguish the flames shortly after arriving on scene. Crews with the Vancouver Fire Department were dispatched at about 6:50 p.m. to the house, at 4713 N.E. 126th Ave. in the North Image neighborhood. They arrived to find a fire contained in the garage, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian. Tapping into a hydrant across the street, firefighters attacked the flames from outside and kept the internal doors of the home shut, according to radio traffic. The flames were put out by 7 p.m., and crews remained on scene to tend to potential hot spots. No injuries were reported, according to radio traffic. The cause of the fire was not available Tuesday evening. A fire investigator was called to the scene.
He said when the two robbers escaped through the back door, they jumped a white fence that led right into the canal.Hialeah Police caught the two robbers shortly after their quick dive into the water.Valdes is still in disbelief that all of this happened on his American vacation. “The last thing I expected was to get held up, but that happens anywhere,” said Valdes, “and a lot of people can’t fight, but I did.”The jewelry and cash were able to be returned.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) – An elderly man who was roughed up and robbed by two armed assailants spoke out, Tuesday.Seventy-six-year-old grandfather Jose Luis Valdes traveled from Cuba to visit his 1-year-old granddaughter. Both were simply relaxing at their East 52nd Street home when the two home invaders made their way into the house.According to Valdes, the robbers came inside through the side door, sneaking up on him and his granddaughter.The grandfather decided he was going to fight back.“Of course I am going to be afraid,” said Valdes, speaking through a translator. “I had no other choice but to fight. Not because of me but because of my granddaughter. She came out and she said, ‘Grandpa, no!’”After putting up a fight, the 76-year-old suffered gashes on his head from being hit with a pistol. The invaders then took money and jewelry.“I was lucky,” said Valdes. “They could’ve basically shot me. Someone with a gun in their hand, it’s not easy.”
