first_imgchris christie and jerry jones celebrate.Twitter/@Bogs4NYLaremy Tunsil may be lucky that this year’s draft is in Chicago, and not New York City. An overzealous former prosecutor may have hopped state lines to bring him in after a hacker posted an old video of him smoking a bong out of a gas mask to his Twitter account.New Jersey Governor and former presidential candidate Chris Christie joined WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Friday morning to discuss the draft, and spent a lot of time expressing his bemusement about the Tunsil situation. At one point, the former New Jersey Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer said that if he were still a prosecutor, he would have “gone in and cuffed” the Ole Miss offensive tackle. Buzzfeed’s Christopher Massie transcribed some of the more interesting parts of the appearance:“It’s unbelievable,” Christie said. “Because the bong hits aren’t enough. Give me the gas mask too. It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”Earlier in the interview, Christie, who opposes marijuana legalization, said, “When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” adding, “I would’ve been all over it.”Christie also expressed sympathy towards Tunsil, saying, “Poor kid in that respect. I mean, he did it. But who’s the guy that hates him enough that they had access to the video and put it on. I mean, wow.”Here is the full interview: [Buzzfeed]last_img read more

Moore returns to music after a decade

Posted in qwuwumar on October 18th, 2019

first_imgLos Angeles: Singer-actor Mandy Moore has released her first song in a decade. Titled ‘When I Wasn’t Watching’, the number is from her new album, the name of which is yet to be declared. The album is slated for release early next year. “The idea of diving back into music after so much time and personal change was really intimidating to me for a while,” a report in variety.com quoted Moore as saying. “But then I finally realised: I’m the only person who can make this move. It all has to start with me,” she added. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: PriyankaThe song has been produced by longtime collaborator Mike Viola and the video has been directed by Lauren Dukoff. The release is significant because it is her first music since her former husband Ryan Adams faced multiple accusations of sexual harassment. “I think everyone’s had the experience of feeling lost and not quite understanding how you’ve found yourself at a certain point in your life. And I think the key is not to judge yourself for that. I’m a big believer in the idea that what you’ve journeyed through is ultimately going to factor into the person you become, and how you’ll greet whatever big challenge you face next,” Moore asserted. The actor, who is looking forward to the premiere of her show ‘This Is Us’, began recording her upcoming album earlier this year. She created the album’s lyrics on her own and recorded each song live with a full band set-up. The 35-year-old actor will release another single before the end of the year.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday said those who consider themselves supreme and indulge in the politics of falsehood will not understand Mahatma Gandhi’s sacrifices and ideals. In what appeared to be a swipe at the present BJP leadership, Sonia Gandhi told party workers and leaders at Rajghat that the Mahatma’s soul would be pained by what has been happening in India in the last few years. Sonia Gandhi also administered an oath on Gandhi’s ideals to party workers on the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Earlier in the day, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi led a march of party workers from the Delhi Congress office at the Deendayal Upadhyaya Marg to mark the occasion. “How will those who consider themselves supreme understand the sacrifices of Mahatma Gandhi….Those doing politics of falsehood will not understand Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence,” Sonia Gandhi said in her brief address on the occasion. Addressing the gathering in Hindi, she said no matter what others might claim, only the Congress has followed the path of Gandhi and has provided jobs, education and facilities to farmers, accomplishments which are unparalleled. “India and Gandhi are synonymous. Yet some people want RSS to be synonymous with India,” she said, adding that India has arrived at its present state due to Mahatma Gandhi.last_img read more

Los Angeles Alberto Salazar pushed himself to the

Posted in ucpxsaxg on October 18th, 2019

first_imgLos Angeles: Alberto Salazar pushed himself to the brink and beyond as an athlete, and preached the same philosophy as a coach to distance running stars. But the 61-year-old Cuban-born American’s will to win finally went too far, according to the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which has banned him for four years for multiple doping violations. Salazar has been a major figure in American athletics for four decades. He won the 1980, 1981 and 1982 New York Marathons and the 1982 Boston Marathon, and later coached such stars as Britain’s Mo Farah, the 2012 and 2016 Olympic champion at 5,000 and 10,000 metres. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju Salazar arrived in the United States as a toddler. His father was a friend of Fidel Castro who fought alongside him in the revolution but later opposed the Communist government. The family moved to suburban Boston, where Salazar won a state cross country crown in 1975. He helped the University of Oregon capture the US collegiate cross country title in 1977, taking national college individual honors the following year. In 1980, Salazar qualified for the US Olympic team at 10,000m, but the Americans boycotted the Moscow Games and Salazar tackled a new challenge: the marathon. He quickly conquered the 26.2-mile (42.195km) event. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters At 22, Salazar won his marathon debut in New York, then set a career-best of 2hrs 8mins 13secs to defend his title. In 1982, he took New York and claimed his only Boston Marathon title in what was dubbed the “Duel in the Sun” with Dick Beardsley. After besting Beardsley in a sprint finish, a dehydrated Salazar collapsed and had to be treated in hospital with intravenous fluids. Salazar finished 15th in the marathon at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, then trained and competed until retiring in the mid-1990s, when he began moving into coaching, joining with Nike to form the Oregon Project in 2001 to train distance runners. The program includes Donovan Brazier — who won the 800m world title Monday as news of Salazar’s ban exploded into the athletics scene — and Sifan Hassan, who won the women’s 10,000m world crown two days earlier. Stripped of his credentials at the World Championships in Doha, Salazar has vowed to fight the ban, which was handed down for violations including trafficking testosterone, tampering with the athlete doping control process and using banned infusion techniques. A four-year ban was also issued to Dr Jeffrey Brown, who was a physician for numerous Nike Oregon athletes, and a paid consultant on performance enhancement for the Project, part of a scheme to manipulate testosterone levels without testing positive. “While acting in connection with the Nike Oregon Project, Mr Salazar and Dr Brown demonstrated that winning was more important than the health and wellbeing of the athletes they were sworn to protect,” USADA chief executive Travis T Tygart said. – Olympic glory, Salazar scrutiny – =================================== Salazar said he was “shocked by the outcome” of USADA’s years-long investigation. Farah won the first Olympic gold for the Nike Oregon Project in 2012 in London in the 10,000m event. Longtime Salazar pupil Galen Rupp took the silver just behind him, and Farah went on to claim the 5,000m gold. But Steve Magness, who spent 18 months as Salazar’s assistant coach in the project before leaving shortly before the London Olympics, spoke out as a whistleblower when BBC’s Panorama and ProPublica investigated doping allegations around Salazar in 2015. Testimonies from various figures alleged microdosing of testosterone, among other suspicious actions. Salazar denied wrongdoing. Farah stuck with him and won another golden double at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. Rupp took marathon bronze and Nike Oregon’s Matt Centrowitz won the 1,500m. But doping allegations nagged. Farah left Salazar in October 2017. The USADA case against Salazar and Brown went to the American Arbitration Association, with hearings conducted in May and June 2018 setting the stage for the arbitration rulings handed down Monday. Salazar said he and his athletes “have endured unjust, unethical and highly damaging treatment from USADA,” and claimed, “I have always ensured the WADA (World Anti-Doping Authority) code is strictly followed.” “The Oregon Project has never and will never permit doping.”last_img read more

Political parties film bodies demand withdrawal of case

Posted in kebzagld on October 18th, 2019

first_imgNew Delhi: More political parties and film bodies on Sunday demanded the withdrawal of the controversial sedition case filed against 49 celebrities after they had expressed concern over rising incidents of mob lynching in an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.The CPI(M) and the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy joined the DMK, the Congress and others in condemning the filing of the case against celebrities like Aparna Sen, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Ramchandra Guha, Mani Ratnam, Anurag Kashyap and Revathi. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe Communist Party of India (Marxist) said this reflects the “growing authoritarianism” in the country. “This is tantamount to punishing all those who have a dissenting opinion on the policies of the present government. This is a complete negation of democratic rights and reflects the growing authoritarianism in the country,” the Left party said. The Kerala State Chalachitra Academy called it a “blatant violation” of the freedom of expression guaranteed under the Constitution. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka GandhiThe case was registered after a chief judicial magistrate in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur passed an order on a plea by a lawyer alleging that the celebrities had tarnished the image of the country through their open letter. Asked about the case, Union minister Prakash Javadekar Saturday said the government has nothing to do with it. “An individual went to the court which has passed an order.” But Gopalakrishnan, one of the writers of the letter, has said the registration of a sedition case is a “matter of great concern”. The filmmaker cited an incident where, he said, a woman and her followers were found shooting at Mahatma Gandhi’s effigy on January 30. “None of them have been labelled as anti-nationals, with even some of them managing to become MPs.” On Saturday, DMK chief M K Stalin, Congress leader Digvijay Singh, RJD national vice-president Shivanand Tiwary and the CPI had demanded that the sedition case be withdrawn. A day before, the Congress party had urged “all right-thinking progressive” parties to collectively “fight this growing spectre of authoritarianism”. “Where is this country headed? People of India need to seriously think, need to seriously apply their minds to what is happening to this country in the past 120-odd days ever since the NDA-BJP government assumed office,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said. Stalin said labelling celebrities anti-national for expressing their concern was unacceptable. “How can seeking to uphold the basic tenets of the Constitution like tolerance and communal harmony be construed as anti-nationalism,” he asked in a statement. The CPI said it firmly stood for independent judiciary but cases like this were bound to strengthen the apprehension that judicial systems are used to harass and intimate the critics of the present government. “Adoor Gopalakrishnan is someone who has always upheld human values through his movies. The act of registering a case against those who had expressed concern over the growing action against humanity does not go well along with a civilised democratic society,” the Kerala Chalachitra Academy said. RJD’s Tiwary, who was formerly with the JD(U) headed by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, said in a statement that historian Guha had raved about Kumar as a leader fit to become the prime minister. “It is ironical that Guha finds himself booked for sedition in the very state ruled by Kumar. I would urge Kumar to seek legal opinion and get the case annulled,” he said.last_img read more
