Favorite OSU uni combo: I do like the silver/gray.4. You get three former or current players/coaches to round out your golfing foursome: Dana, Johnny, Leach. I won’t remember it, but I’m sure it was fun.5. What does the OSU football program do better than every other Big 12 program: Seems to me as if it is now losing that “little brother,” have-not tag. It believes it belongs. I guess Baylor is doing that too. But, to answer frankly, it is overachieving relative to history.6. Who is the most talented football player currently at OSU: Dez! Oh. Current. Man, this question is harder than it has been in a long, long time. I’ll bet on the unknown and say Hill. I’m bought in.7. Most memorable OSU game of the Gundy Era: We both agree Fiesta. Significant to get there, more significant to find a way to win it against a really consistent program from the past decade or so. 8. One word to describe Glenn Spencer: Underrated. Popular response, I am sure, but he is. Running D’s in tempo programs is really, really tough.9. Boone Pickens is ___________: Energy Money Touchdown Jesus10. 2014 OSU Record prediction: 6-7. Not pretty but some signs of hope for future, Hill being a big one.

first_img Editors’ Recommendations The stark sizzle of a 3-pound Tomahawk cut (a bone-in rib steak with the entire rib intact) hitting an open campfire is a sound I won’t soon forget. It was one of many meat-filled highlights of the second annual Retreat 4 Roses – an invitation-only celebration in the Silver Falls State Park woods for 75 of Portland, Oregon’s best bartenders.Around 4:00 pm on a dreary Sunday afternoon, we all met up at cocktail hub Bit House Saloon to get acquainted and load onto a chartered school bus for the 90-minute drive to Silver Falls. As the sun set and the streetlights disappeared behind us, we pulled into the “new” cabin ranch inside the park – our glorious wooden home for the next 48 hours.Centered on a concrete fire pit, the cabin has around 50 beds, a full kitchen and a certain level of charm only found in the wilderness with limited-to-no phone service. It’s divided into four-bunk sections that provide a decent amount of privacy, considering there are no walls dividing the second floor sleeping area. I unrolled my new sleeping bag and set off to the pot roast dinner.Food for the weekend was split-duty between Chef Jackie Ramsey of Culina in Los Angeles and Zeph Sheppard of Portland’s Proletariat Butchery. Various attendees were their sous chefs – one of the event’s better “volunteer” jobs.It is common knowledge that you can’t get a bunch of bartenders under one roof and not expect a cocktail competition –thus a loosely organized battle between 10 or so broke out shortly after dinner. With the level of talent on-site, every drink was great. Entries only required New Deal’s luscious, licorice-y Cascadia D’Amore amaro as an ingredient and the winner would be announced the following evening.As mixing glasses and bottles clanged, Los Angeles’ Adventure Sleep was the perfect background soundtrack. The four-piece played rock-based 90s covers through the evening as the fire crackled behind them.A beautiful thing happened around 11:00 pm when Sheppard suddenly appeared with a massive hind part of a cow. With his grandfather’s hacksaw and knife in hand, he sawed off a chunk of the roast, fashioned a grate over the fire and grilled on the spot. Sheppard’s lineage is riddled with old-school, utilitarian living and it’s all transferred over to his no-frills cooking style. “Midnight Snack” doesn’t even begin to describe the chef’s mastery. There are few things better in life than enjoying the fruits of a professional butcher at the witching hour in the woods.The next morning was a bit…slow…for just about everyone. However, my new bag provided a decent night’s sleep (also my first time using a mummy bag – I’m a convert). Jugs of Bloody Marys plus cold brew from Portland Roasting Co. brought everyone back to life in time for morning activities. Instead of games and naptime, I chose to hike around the park (something I hadn’t done in 10-15 years). A group of us loaded the van and went to the trail head.Although Silver Falls is visited by more than one million annually, the park’s 10 waterfalls and looping trails are still pristine and breathtaking. We chose to walk under, over and around six of them (with a few stops in-between for your intoxicant of choice). It was a great opportunity to get to know some of my fellow retreaters, including Ninkasi Brewing Co-Founder Jamie Floyd, who is as much of a rabid outdoors explorer as I am.Five miles later and after avoiding most of the torrential downpours that sporadically drenched the weekend (classic Pacific Northwest weather), we headed back to the cabin for summer camp-style team competitions. My team, the Island of Misfits (creativity was encouraged), ended up with one win on the mini-whiskey-barrel roll course where I busted open my finger, but still managed to lead my cohorts to victory. Hail storm delays kept the competition from wrapping up until dinnertime.Throughout the day, Sheppard had prepared and set a halved pig on a coal-powered roaster, which doubled as a second campfire in sub-55° temperatures. While helping him set up a rotisserie for whole chickens that were about to undergo a similar coal therapy, he explained to me his butchering background and the pride of cooking in a relatively unchanged way – all while cramming all of his supplies in a 1993 Range Rover.Six years into his craft, Sheppard has essentially mastered the art of the slow roast. There’s nothing fancy about his style: he halved the pig and chickens, dusted with salt and pepper, then let the coals do most of the flavoring. Dinner was a gorge-fest of chicken, pork, and beef perfectly seasoned and weathered to match the climate and feel of the weekend. It was a proper final meal around a roaring campfire, never mind the partially drenched clothes.As Adventure Sleep wrapped up their final song, the winner of the cocktail competition was announced: Bible Club’s Jessica Braasch and her fantastic “Mountain Rose Fix” – a bonfire sipper combination of gin, ginger liqueur, cardamom bitters, lemon and the aforementioned amaro. The gentle click of Scrabble and the swoosh of poker cards followed in the cabin and it was an early night for this reporter as I drifted off before midnight.Maybe the most impressive feat of the retreat happened the next morning. A group of 50+ groggy, tired, and overindulged bartenders cleaned up the cabin in a little over an hour. From trashed to spotless in less than 90 minutes. It was a testament to the camaraderie built over the weekend. The Retreat 4 Roses is part of the growing shift towards intimate events where small, meaningful experiences take precedence over social media impressions and brand metrics. It further strengthens the local bar community, makes everyone’s drinks better and I hope I get another invite next year to hear that fire crackling once again.Waterfall photo by Geoff Nudelman, all other photos by Jason Horvath.

first_imgzoom Port of Hamburg’s Container Terminal Burchardkai has put into operation twelve new low-emission straddle carriers, which reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxides by 94%, while generating 95% less particulate matter compared to the previously used straddle carriers.The twelve new straddle carriers comply with the requirements of the European Union’s emissions standard Euro 4: they emit a maximum of 0.5 grams of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and 0.025 grams of particulate matter (PM) per kilowatt-hour of output.This translates into annual CO2 savings of more than 130,000 kilos per vehicle. A total of 133 straddle carriers are now in use at CTB.”By adding the twelve new straddle carriers, we have further expanded the fleet of vehicles at the Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB). This enables us to further increase Burchardkai’s performance capabilities, especially at peak times,” said Dr. Stefan Behn, member of the HHLA Executive Board. ”The Port of Hamburg is in the middle of the city. That makes it important to keep harmful emissions as low as possible.”last_img read more

first_imgAmaravati: Andhra Pradesh’s ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) on Sunday demanded that former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu should vacate the house in which he is staying here. YSRCP MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy said that Naidu should own the moral responsibility of staying in an illegal house and vacate it instead of making irrational arguments. The MLA from Mangalagiri said that if the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President failed to vacate the house, he will complain to the competent authority to take immediate action. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! The owner of the house in which Naidu is staying was last month issued a notice for violation of various laws. “As the land on which the house was built by Lingamaneni Ramesh clearly flouted the rules of various departments, the TDP President should immediately vacate the house and stop his doublespeak on the status of the house,” said the YSRCP leader who has been leading a campaign for demolition of all illegal buildings on the banks of Krishna river. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed The MLA alleged that Naidu kept on changing his stand about the status of the house. He said that there is no clarity from either the developer or the person who is staying in the house about its status and the air will be cleared by the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) soon. Reddy reacalled that Naidu had said in the Assembly on March 6, 2016 that the house belonged to the government. Hence, he is bound to vacate it on that ground, the MLA said. “I will ask the authorities to verify the facts fully on the ownership and transfer of the property which is part of the land pooling (for developing the state capital) and take action accordingly,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – Investigators say three family members have been charged after a woman was allegedly kidnapped and abused for nearly a year.Police say the American woman came to Canada last year, married a man from Kingston, Ont., and moved into his home, where he lived with his mother, father and brother.Kingston police say that over the course of 11 months, the woman was told she couldn’t leave the home unless accompanied by a member of her family.They allege the family isolated her, monitored her calls and took her citizenship papers and jewelry away from her.Police say starting in April, the family members became increasingly violent towards the woman, allegedly hitting her and threatening to kill her.Investigators say the woman escaped earlier this month after she was allegedly burned with a hot pair of tongs and reported the incident to police.They say the woman’s 29-year-old husband, her 52-year-old mother-in-law and 27-year-old brother-in-law were all charged.They face charges including forcible confinement, assault and harassment.last_img read more

The United Nations human rights chief today called on the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to take immediate steps to halt widespread human rights violations, including apparent summary executions, by the country’s armed forces. “It is time to stop a blunt military response that does nothing to tackle the root causes of the conflict between the Government and local militias but instead targets civilians on the basis of their presumed links to the militias,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in a news release from his office (OHCHR). Mr. Zeid said that there are multiple, credible allegations of massive human rights violations in the provinces of Kasai, Kasai Central, Kasai Oriental and Lomami amid a sharp deterioration in security situation there. A local militia linked to a customary chief, Kamuina Nsapu, who was killed by the African country’s armed forces in August 2016 has been increasingly active in Kasai Central Province, mostly attacking government buildings and churches, and national security forces. The militia also reportedly recruits and uses children. According to OCHR, horrific video footage emerged over the weekend apparently showing soldiers of the Government security forces, known as FARDC, shooting repeatedly and without warning at men and women, who purportedly belonged to the militia in Muenza Nsapu village. The UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC is not in a position to verify the origin and authenticity of the video. However, the DRC Government spokesperson has stated that FARDC officers are under judicial investigation. The UN Joint Human Rights Office in the country has documented the killings of more than 280 individuals since July 2016 in the context of this violence. “Amid a worrying escalation of violence in provinces considered relatively calm, I call again on the Government to redouble its efforts to tackle impunity that feeds further violence and human rights violations,” said Mr. Zeid. read more

A Romanian national who carried out a string of serious criminal offences can’t be deported because he is protected by EU law.Denis Viscu, 20, arrived in the UK in 2007 with his family and between July 2014 and March 2017 received 14 convictions for 20 offences including robbery and knife possession. But when the Home Office tried to deport him they were blocked by judges who held that under EU law he had rights to enhanced protection under the EU Citizens’ Directive as he had lived in the UK for five years.During his legal fight to stay in the UK  Viscu was further convicted of four more offences, including possession of a knife in a public place, burglary and possession of a Class A drug and was sentenced to a total of 4 ½ years detention in a young offenders institution.In September 2017, the Home Office tried to deport Viscu because he was a  ‘persistent offender’.Government lawyers argued that although Viscu had lived in the United Kingdom since 2007 he was not entitled to enhanced protection under EU law because the time he had spent in custody ‘broke the continuity of lawful residence’.But a judge held that, since Viscu was a juvenile he could not be sentenced to imprisonment and so his residence in the United Kingdom had been ‘continuous and uninterrupted’ availing him of special EU protection. Under Chapter IV of the Citizens’ Directive, ‘Union citizens who have resided legally for a continuous period of five years in the host Member State shall have the right of permanent residence there.’A member state can only expel an EU resident where they have strong grounds to believe their presence poses a risk to the public.But the EU has added the caveat that  ‘previous criminal convictions shall not in themselves constitute grounds for’ denying an EU citizen their right of residency.Now the Court of Appeal has ordered that the case be reheard in full.Lord Justice Underhill, sitting with two Court of Appeal judges, said the Home Secretary will be able to make a case for deportation on public policy and public security grounds. The judge said: “Although the jurisprudence refers most frequently to “imprisonment” rather than “custodial sentence” I am quite satisfied that the rationale for the principle that, in general, a custodial sentence is indicative of a rejection of societal values and a severing of integrative links so as to interrupt the required continuity of residence, is equally applicable to sentences of detention in a YOI as it is to imprisonment.”This is because, on a proper analysis, it is not the sentence which indicates rejection of societal values but the offending which is sufficiently serious to warrant a custodial sentence whether of imprisonment or some other form of detention.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_imgIf you visit the Google search homepage today you will see yet another one of their interactive Google Doodles. This time it’s part interaction, part game, and sees you take control of a balloon as it turns into a parachute.The Doodle has been created to celebrate the 216th anniversary of the first ever parachute jump. It was performed by a very brave Frenchman called Jacque Garnerin on October 22, 1797.Although there were parachutes created as early as 1783, they all used a frame consisting of linen stretched across a wooden structure. It wasn’t until after 1793 when Jean-Pierre Blanchard started experimenting with folded up silk that the frame disappeared. Then in 1797 Garnerin used such a parachute for the first time.His idea was to ascend in a balloon that used seven meters of silk tied to the basket and balloon. When he reached 3,000 feet above the Parc Monceau in Paris he cut ties with the balloon, the silk parachute opened, and he descended in the basket, landing without injury. Garnerin went on to add vents to the parachute, which made for a much more stable descent.Today the modern parachute is folded and placed on a jumper’s back. We’ve even developed the ability to travel far greater distances while falling with wingsuits, but ultimately still need to deploy a parachute for a safe landing.The most interesting thing about this Google Doodle is the variety of places you can land. The wind can push your parachute great distances left or right, and so far I’ve landed on grassy hills, in the water next to a ship. and at the feet of an elephant. And knowing Google, there’s sure to be a number of easter eggs to uncover.last_img read more

Monday 6 Feb 2017, 10:59 PM Not because I can’t stand up for myself… but because it gives people false impressions.Last year, Pechthold sued a PVV supporter over photos which sparked death threats against him.“In these times of fake news and alternative facts, we can’t just ignore the consequences that such a fake image can have,” he said.I draw the line today.Other politicians also sided with Pechthold. Jesse Klaver, leader of GroenLinks (Green Left), called Wilders’ tweet “low and irresponsible”.“Those who tweet fake news about others, tarnish their own credibility,” he said.And Deputy Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher, leader of the Labour party, simply retweeted Wilders tweet with the message “delete your account”.Wilders hit back against Pechthold on Twitter, saying: “Stop complaining, drama queen. You have demonstrated standing among Palestinian flags, with friends of Hamas. #hypocrite”The vote in the Netherlands will kick off a year of elections in Europe with ballots also due in both France and Germany.

first_imgBy Bonnie Adams, Managing EditorCarie Miele (second from left) with (l to r) her son, Eric, Jr., Mariane Frongillo, the owner of GLC, her daughter Victoria, and her husband EricShrewsbury – Carie Miele has always had a special place in her heart for children with disabilities. She has also loved gymnastics her entire life. As the founder and coach of an adaptive gymnastic team at Gymnastics Learning Center (GLC) in Shrewsbury, she had a unique opportunity to merge those two loves. Recently, she made the decision to step down from the program, after a remarkable 27 year run.“My mother was very involved in working with kids with disabilities and my aunt was involved in the deaf community,” Miele said. “So I was very exposed to this world.”As a high school student, she was watching a movie one evening about a child with Down syndrome who worked with a physical therapist. Miele knew then, she said, that was what she wanted to do herself someday.When she went onto Northeastern University in 1992 to get her degree in physical therapy, there was one problem – she needed to also get some practical experience.Miele was also a gymnast who had been competing for Gymnastics Learning Center (GLC) in Shrewsbury since she was a young girl.“I loved it there – it formed a big part of who I am. [Owner] Mariane Frongillo is the most kind, compassionate giving person, just filled with Christian faith,” Miele said.She decided to ask Frongillo if she could create and coach an adaptive gymnastic team at GLC.“Without hesitation she said ‘yes,’” Miele recalled.After Frongillo gave her the go-ahead, Miele started the adaptive team with three gymnasts – Jessica, who was 15, Amy, who was 8, and Lindsey, who was 7. Miele herself was only 19.All three stayed with the team through the years; in fact, many of the athletes who came in later years also stayed for long tenures.“Through the 27 years, we have probably have had 75 athletes and over 300 volunteers, many of whom also helped to coach,” Miele said. “I could not have done this program without them. They allowed it to happen.”As grateful as she is to her volunteers, it is really the athletes themselves that she greatly admires.“Every single day I have been humbled to work with these athletes, all of whom are facing some type of challenge and many have faced many challenges,” she said. “And gymnastics isn’t easy – and it can be scary! But they have so much courage and love for the sport.”“And the trust the parents have demonstrated over the years…humbling is the only word for it,” she added. “I really feel I grew up with the team. We developed relationships outside of the gym. They’re family.”Every time they came to the gym, the young men and women would put aside their challenges and view themselves as true gymnasts, Miele said. Sometimes adaptations would have to be made, but the women did all four disciplines (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor) while the men did all six disciplines (floor, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars, and horizontal).Miele also coached a rhythmic gymnastics team as well.The teams followed Special Olympics rules and several times actually went to compete at National and World Games.During her time as coach, Miele did go onto become a practicing physical therapist, working with children in early intervention programs. She also married her husband, Eric, a research scientist for Astra Zeneca, and had two children, Victoria, now 13, and Eric Jr., now 12.Eric was the men’s coach while Victoria was assistant coach for the rhythmic and men’s teams.“They didn’t have experience coaching or even doing gymnastics but they learned and did a great job!” Miele said.Stepping down after 27 years was hard, Miele noted, but as her kids get older and busier, she found she needed to be there for them more. Victoria is a choral singer with the Boston Symphony Children’s Choir. Eric is a musician who plays saxophone for his school’s marching band and also plays soccer and wrestles.Miele said that it is hopeful that a new coaching staff will restart the adaptive program this fall.“It has really been my honor to work with all of these athletes, coaches and volunteers,” she said. “It’s been my pride and joy.”photos/courtesy Carie MieleMembers of the team with the Brown University Collegiate teamMen’s teamRhythmic athletes (l to r) Kristen, Liza, and Erikalast_img read more
