TUSCALOOSA, AL – SEPTEMBER 30: Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks on during the game against the Mississippi Rebels at Bryant-Denny Stadium on September 30, 2017 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Back in March, four-star recruit Demouy Kennedy announced that his decommitment from Auburn. Fast forward to June, where the talented linebacker made the big switch to the Tigers’ hated rival Alabama.According to 247Sports, Kennedy is the No. 3 linebacker in his class. The Crimson Tide should find an abundance of ways to use his six-foot-three frame on defense.While the decision to decommit from Auburn wasn’t easy for Kennedy, the Alabama native sounds pretty happy about joining the reigning SEC champions.During Kennedy’s visit to Alabama, Nick Saban unleashed an epic recruiting pitch to seal the deal. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p From AL.com:They were standing next to two tables, he said. One was clear of anything. The other had championship rings on it.“I liked when he said, ‘Would you rather gamble on this table (pointing to the ring table) or the other table?’ I said, ‘I’m gambling on the ring table.”Comparing Alabama’s success to other programs is quite the power move from Saban.Saban has turned Alabama into the biggest powerhouse in college football. It’d be hard for Kennedy to ignore the school’s success, even though he did originally commit to Auburn.With Kennedy on board for the Crimson Tide’s 2020 recruiting class, Saban is inching closer to Dabo Swinney and Clemson’s top class.[AL.com]
The team at Hackensack Meridian Health is pleased to congratulate New York Giants Quarterback Eli Manning on his Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.Eli Manning stands with doctors, nurses, team members, patients and families from Hackensack University Medical Center as a part of the Tackle Kids Cancer campaignHe shares the award with Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals.“We are ecstatic that Eli achieved this incredible honor,” said Robert C. Garrett, co-chief executive officer of Hackensack Meridian Health. “He is a valued team member both on and off the field, and we are particularly grateful for his devotion to our patients and the Tackle Kids Cancer initiative.”Each NFL team nominates one player who has had a significant positive influence on his community. In a statement, the NFL praised Manning as a steadfast champion for causes involving children.“Eli shares our vision in advancing the Tackle Kids Cancer initiative in many ways,” said Jon M. Fitzgerald, president of the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation. “In 2016, he issued a matching donation challenge that ignited the community and exceeded the goal. We are proud to partner with Eli on this essential program.”One hundred percent of the funds raised by Tackle Kids Cancer directly supports pediatric cancer research and program services at the Children’s Cancer Institute at HackensackUMC. Tackle Kids Cancer is a partnership of dedicated clinicians and researchers, corporate sponsors, and supporters working to make the necessary strides towards advancing medical research to find a cure for pediatric cancer and providing the highest level of care.Since volunteering to champion the Tackle Kids Cancer campaign ahead of the 2015 season, Eli Manning regularly visits the children battling cancer at the Children’s Cancer Institute at HackensackUMC. His fundraising, appearances and personal donations are exemplified by the creation of the “Sohn-Manning Pediatric Cancer Survivorship Program,” among the many fundraising efforts he inspired. During its inaugural season the Giants, Manning and HackensackUMC were surprised by the many local grass roots organizations supporting Tackle Kids Cancer, so Manning pledged to match and inspire those efforts – and “Eli’s Challenge” was born, exceeding the goal in the first few weeks of the program. To date, his support of the program has directly led to more than $1,000,000 in fundraising in just over one year, and propelled the new charitable program to over $4,000,000 in funds raised since its inception.The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes an NFL player for his excellence on and off the field. The award was established in 1970. It was renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton. This is the first time a New York Giant player has won the award in its history. The winner was announced in Houston at NFL Honors, a two-hour primetime awards special that aired nationally on FOX the night before Super Bowl LI.

RCMP say anti-pipeline demonstrators used red paint to damage property.Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsPrime Minister Justin Trudeau’s new round of consultations with First Nation communities over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project got off to a rocky start Monday.Outside the hearing in Kamloops organized by Natural Resources Canada (NRC), three members of Tiny House Warriors – an Indigenous anti-pipeline group – were arrested after a noisy demonstration.APTN News has confirmed Justice Frank Iacobucci chaired the meeting at Thompson Rivers University.Representatives from Trans Mountain were also at the Phase 3 hearing formed to meet with 117 Indigenous groups impacted by the proposed pipeline expansion project.“These roundtables are a space for potentially impacted communities with varying views on the project to come together and help shape this process,” said Catherine Leroux of NRC.“We stand firmly behind the right to peaceful protest. However, actions that could interfere with any groups ability to safely participate in this process raises serious concerns.”The consultations come after the Federal Court of Appeal said the government failed in its constitutional duty to consult properly with Indigenous groups.It refused to approve an application from the National Energy Board in October.A spokesperson said the university was still tallying up damage it says demonstrators caused.“I checked and we won’t have an estimate for a few days,” said Darshan Lindsay.Cpl. Jodi Shelkie of Kamloops RCMP believes the call for police came from campus security after demonstrators took up positions outside the meeting room.“We had been advised that there were eight protestors at Thompson Rivers University,” Shelkie said.“Five officers from Kamloops RCMP attended the scene.”Shelkie said three people – a male and two females – were arrested and released Tuesday night and charges were pending.She said the “protesters” smeared red paint on walls and allegedly assaulted a security guard.The Tiny House Warriors confirmed three of its members were taken into custody. It posted video of the incident on its Facebook page.“The land defenders arrested were Mayuk Manuel, Snutetkwe Manuel, and Isha Jules,” the group said in a release.“Mayuk Manuel and Snutetkwe Manuel are daughters of the late Arthur Manuel, a renowned Secwepemc Indigenous leader on the world stage and a strong advocate for self-determination.”Spokesperson Kanahus Manuel said her group opposes the “closed-door meetings by federal bands that turn away proper and rightful title holders.“Just because the government talks to a few bands recognized by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, that doesn’t amount to meaningful consultation.”Tiny House Warriors say their mission is to stop the TransMountain Pipeline from crossing Secwepemc nation’s unceded territory.Their strategy is to place tiny houses along the 518-kilometre route. firstname.lastname@example.org@katmarte
“With these funds, humanitarian actors will provide life-saving food, health, water and sanitation services to 2.6 million vulnerable Kenyans over the next ten months,” said Siddharth Chatterjee, UN Resident Coordinator in Kenya.Half of the country is affected by the drought brought on by a third consecutive year of unreliable rains.Below average rains are “causing thirst and hunger, decimating livestock, destroying livelihoods, spreading disease, and causing large movements of people,” according to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).The latest flash appeal is a complement to Kenya’s ongoing nine-month response plan which faces a funding gap of $108 million, OCHA said.Earlier this month, OCHA’s head, Stephen O’Brien visited Kenya to highlight the risk of famine facing people there, as well as in Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen.Reporting his observations to the Security Council upon his return, the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator said the international community is “facing the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN.”
Sherwin Apple also called “Yellow”The body of one of the two men who were seen in a leaked video allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl in Linden on Monday was fished out of Kitty Seawall in the vicinity of Selena on Tuesday morning. Dead is 41-year-old Sherwin Apple also called “Yellow” formerly of William Street Kitty and Silver Town, Wismar, Linden.He was found lying face down in the mud. There were no marks of violence on his body but there was blood oozing from his nostrils. It is believed that he might have committed suicide by ingesting carbon tablets after the video of him went viral on Facebook.His body was taken to the Lyken’s Funeral Home awaiting a post mortem. The now dead man moved back to Guyana from Antigua a few years ago.Based on preliminary investigations, Apple reportedly went missing at around 19:00h on Monday after telling relatives that his ex-girlfriend who happened to be a relative of the young woman in the video.He reportedly further told them that the sex was consensual and the content seen in the video was merely a “role play”.Apple was thrown into the negative spotlight and had been the receiver of harsh criticism after the video showed him and the other man taking turns having sex with the young woman as she begged them to stop.He was again seen demanding oral sex from the minor while saying demeaning things to her as the second perpetrator recorded the ordeal.A source close to the investigations however, told “Inews” that the young woman and her mother turned up at the Police Station and denied that she was the person in the said video.An investigation has been launched into the incident.

How does it change everything else, we ourselves have to wait or else we may be grossly disappointed and then we will start complaining again because we have been given an unrealistic picture because of what they are doing now, because of this entire approach that they are setting us up for long term to medium term problems” Jagdeo posited.The Opposition Leader went on to say that this action by government is worrisome especially since the impression given by government does not reflect the country’s reality.With principle explorer ExxonMobil pushing for the development of the oil reserves, production is scheduled to begin in early 2020 or perhaps late 2019.In fact only last week, the US oil giant announced its 10th discovery, reinforcing the country’s potential to be able to produce more than 750,000 barrels of oil daily by 2025.
South Africa’s Goscor Earthmoving Equipment (GEM) has welcomed the SANY SY210C-9 excavator into its range of small and large equipment for construction, mining, agriculture, sand and stone, forestry, roadworks, and plant hire sectors.The 21 tonne machine features a six-cylinder in-line, water-cooled Cummins 6BT5.9-C140 engine, with a rated power of 140 hp (104 kW) at 2,000 rpm, and a maximum torque of 571 Nm at 1,300 rpm.The engine is matched to the hydraulic system, thanks to the proprietary Dynamic Optimisation Matching Control System (DOMCS) developed by China’s SANY.Andre Steenkamp, General Manager of the SANY range under GEM, said: “This advanced control system not only boosts operating efficiency by 6%, but furthermore slashes fuel consumption by 10%, which also goes a long way in reducing the total cost of ownership.”The matched auto-idle speed function is designed for further increasing fuel efficiency, while ensuring maximum stability during idling for smooth operation, GEM, a SANY distributor, said.“Variable working modes include heavy-duty, standard, light-duty, and break, which enhances the versatility of the excavator in different working environments.”Additional “smart” features include an advanced GPRS monitoring system and machine alerts to allow for proactive monitoring of engine hours, fuel usage, and location history. The upgraded undercarriage has a unique X-shape structure for its lateral beams, providing extra strength and rigidity, excellent torsion, and bending resistance, according to the company.SANY’s full range of plant and mining equipment includes excavators, graders, rigid dump trucks, wheel loaders, rollers, pavers, cranes, port machinery, pile driving and concrete pumps.“The main differentiator for SANY in the local market is highly-competitive pricing for this global brand, supplemented by increased parts-holding and full in-field service and technical back-up through GEM’s national branch structure,” GEM said.SANY’S equipment has been tailored to African operating conditions, focusing on “enhanced durability, fuel efficiency, user-friendliness, and reliability”.

The former Premier League footballer believes the Spurs are still in the race to lift the English trophy at the end of the season.Tottenham Hotspur is located in the third position of the English Premier League standings with 12 games remaining in the title race.The Spurs have 60 points, five less than leaders Manchester City and second-place Liverpool.Tottenham has won 20 of their 26 matches, drawing zero times and losing six.And for former English Premier League footballer Alan Shearer, they are still in the competition.“It is a little disrespectful that not many people are talking about Tottenham as potential Premier League winners because they are in the title race – and they have shown they are not going away,” he told the BBC.“It was typical really that, on a day where Manchester City were sensational and made the headlines with the way they demolished Chelsea to go back above Liverpool at the top of the table, Spurs ground out another unspectacular victory.”“Mauricio Pochettino’s side have done something similar in each of their past four league games, but it is actually very impressive that they keep getting results when none of those performances have been particularly great,” he added.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I thought Leicester were the better team at Wembley on Sunday and the Foxes created chance after chance by getting behind Tottenham’s full-backs, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose, who stayed so high up the pitch.”“If that happens again in Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund, Spurs are going to be in trouble because I think they will get punished,” he explained.“But, on this occasion, they not only survived, they found a way to win.”“It was obviously not the same sort of statement of intent that City made a couple of hours later, but to score three goals and take the three points without playing well at all is still a very good sign of the sort of shape that Spurs are in,” Shearer said.“Yes, in an ideal world Tottenham would be doing what City did on Sunday, and tearing teams apart, but they are at a stage of their season when their squad is stretched and getting results is the only thing that matters.”3⃣ goals in 3⃣ matches for Sonny! 🔥#COYS pic.twitter.com/XdJVdFvIca— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 11, 2019
