He seems complete, he can also play as a total midfielder,” said Sarri.”The fact that he is only 20 makes one think that he will really be one of Europe’s most important players.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img

FSJ RCMP are reminding motorists to slow down for winter driving conditions

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The RCMP want to remind drivers to slow down for the current winter driving conditions.The RCMP shared, with snow clearing taking place on some of the streets and avenues, conditions can improve immensely but they can also become more slippery, depending on a variety of factors.  Recently, while the RCMP attended a motor vehicle collision between two vehicles at a high use intersection, another collision occurred between two more vehicles.Road conditions may be contributing factors but drivers can still be ticketed for Speed Relative to Conditions for a fine of $167.00 (Sec. 144(1)(c) Motor Vehicle Act) as they did not slow down enough to maintain control as they approached the intersection. “The known or posted speed signs don’t change on our roads,” said Cst Neustaeter, “but conditions do.”A person must not drive at a speed that is excessive relative to the road, traffic, visibility or weather conditions, shared the RCMP.The RCMP are reminding drivers to be aware of where pedestrians may interact with traffic such as crosswalks and when pedestrians enter the roadway to get into their vehicles.  The road can be uneven and slippery for pedestrians.  Drivers who slow down have more time to react if the pedestrian slips or falls.Drivers are responsible for driving at a reasonable speed that protects them from sliding through intersections, causing a collision with another vehicle or person.  These collisions are preventable when drivers slow down and drive relative to conditions shared the RCMP.last_img read more

Keyshawn Johnson Defends Magic Johnson Against Claims That He

If you’re going to publicly weigh the pros and cons of what a man has done then weigh both, not just the part that supports your argument…— Michael Wilbon (@RealMikeWilbon) February 23, 2017 Dan Le Batard said Magic Johnson’s skills don’t fit his new role with the Lakers, which Keyshawn Johnson found bigoted. (Screenshot/Twitter)Dan Le Batard quickly responded to Keyshawn Johnson and Michael Wilbon, who both criticized him for saying Magic Johnson is unqualified to lead the Los Angeles Lakers’ basketball operations.Speaking on “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz” show Friday, Feb. 24, Le Batard stood by his assessment.“It sounded like I was saying that [Magic Johnson] only gets jobs because he’s famous and charming,” Le Batard said. “People made the argument, ‘He’s a good businessman.’ Well, of course, he’s a good businessman. So is James Dolan, so is the owner of the [Sacremento] Kings [Vivek Ranadive], so was Donald Sterling. I was talking about, is it a translatable skill set? You’ve seen Magic Johnson’s tweets, they’re obvious. He’s not a basketball visionary when he’s raving about [Shanghai Sharks guard] Jimmer Fredette.”On Thursday, Feb. 23, Le Batard said Magic Johnson has not proven successful in any of his post-basketball endeavors. He concluded the charitable NBA great had no business being promoted from his advisory role Tuesday after the team terminated General Manager Mitch Kupchak.“Magic Johnson is charming,” Le Batard said. “But Magic Johnson was given a late-night television show because he’s famous and charming. Failed in 11 shows. Magic Johnson was given a head coaching job of the Lakers because he’s famous and charming. Failed in 16 games.”Keyshawn Johnson responded to Le Batard’s claims on “ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ” later that day and defended Magic’s short-lived late-night talk show gig.“I can’t tolerate this dude!” the retired NFL wide receiver said. “I can’t tolerate him saying these things about Magic Johnson because his facts are completely wrong! He got a talk show coming out of the NBA because they were trying a late-night talk show with African-Americans … The talk show business is hard! How many people fail at it?”Johnson then implied Le Batard’s stance was founded in racism, an assertion co-host Jorge Sedano disagreed with.“I’m going to read between the lines,” Johnson said. “I’m going to read between the lines on this one. To me, he’s saying ‘because he’s a Black dude,’ that’s the way I look at it …”Michael Wilborn, co-host of ESPN’s “Pardon The Interruption,” tweeted in defense of Magic Johnson’s business acumen, saying Le Batard should have considered all aspects of the Hall of Famer’s career into account and not just his failures.So LeBatard bases Magic’s worthiness on a failed talk show and failed coaching career but not the 25 years since of success in business?— Michael Wilbon (@RealMikeWilbon) February 23, 2017 read more

Urban Meyer named Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year finalist

After leading Ohio State to a perfect season, Urban Meyer is a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award, according to the Football Writers Association of America. In his first year in Columbus, Meyer led the Buckeyes to a 12-0 record and their first undefeated season since 2002. His nomination for the honor, which is given to college football’s best coach, isn’t anything new. Meyer, who is the sport’s second-winningest active Football Bowl Subdivision coach, won the award after leading Utah to a 12-0 mark in 2004. While at Florida, Meyer was nominated for the accolade in 2008 – a season that saw him lead the Gators to a national championship. Meyer joins Gary Andersen (Utah State), Dave Doeren (Northern Illinois), Brian Kelly (Notre Dame), Will Muschamp (Florida), Bill O’Brien (Penn State), David Shaw (Stanford), Bill Snyder (Kansas State) and Kevin Sumlin (Texas A&M) as finalists for the award. Fellow Big Ten coach O’Brien was named the conference’s Coach of the Year on Nov. 27 after guiding the Nittany Lions to a 8-4 record this season. Among the nine coaches, only Meyer and Kelly led their respective teams to 12-0 records. While OSU is barred from the year’s postseason because of NCAA violations and subsequent penalties, the Fighting Irish are scheduled to play Alabama (12-1) in the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 7. 2013. Meyer’s Buckeyes are ranked No. 3 in the Associated Press top 25 poll behind No. 1 Notre Dame and the No. 2 Alabama. read more

Four base units of measure in the metric system about to be

The four units under review are the ampere, kilogram, mole and kelvin. Citation: Four base units of measure in the metric system about to be changed (2018, November 9) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-11-base-metric.html Currently, the kilogram is officially defined as the mass of a cylinder made of a platinum-iridium alloy housed in a bell jar in France—it has been removed from its protected spot every 40 years to serve as a calibration tool for other weights. But according to officials with CGPM, its days are numbered. This is because the 60 member nations that make up the body will be voting to change to a system in which the kilogram will be defined indirectly—by using the Planck constant. The tool used to provide the new base unit is the Kibble balance—a very complex piece of equipment that first measures the amount of electric current necessary to create an electromagnetic force that is equal to a force acting on a given mass. It is during the second stage that the Plank constant comes into play. The reason for the changeover is to reference a more stable basis of measurement and to allow for the development of more precise measuring devices. Several metrologists involved in bringing the changes to a vote have acknowledged that most people will neither understand the changes that have taken place, nor notice that a change has occurred.The metric system is part of the International System of Units, and in places other than the United States, is commonly called SI. Efforts to make it more precise have been underway for years. The speed of light, for example, was updated in 1983, and is now defined as 299,792,458 meters per second. For those interested in the proceedings, the CGPM will be streamed live on the internet. Officials have described the meeting as marking the end of SI measurements based on objects. Prior meetings have already resulted in updating the other three base units in the system: the second, meter and candela. If the measures pass, the changes will take effect in May of next year.last_img read more
