Dylan Hartley among three forwards cited on damaging weekend for England

first_imgThe low-end entry point for striking is two weeks so, even if he were found guilty, Hartley’s chances of featuring in England’s opening Test against Argentina on 11 November remain reasonably good. He received a six-week ban in December 2016 for striking the Leinster flanker Sean O’Brien in a Champions Cup match and this latest incident has come at an awkward moment for Hartley, with Saracens’ Jamie George mounting a strong case for his England starting jersey.Marler is also back in the dock, this time for dropping a forearm on Wasps’ Will Rowlands during Harlequins’ heavy defeat in Coventry. The prop’s defence will be based on Rowlands’ apparent failure to release his leg following a tackle but his actions did not impress the Irish citing commissioner, Murray White. Both players will have their cases heard by a three-man panel comprised of England’s Jeremy Summers, Wales’s Rhian Williams and the former Scotland coach Frank Hadden.Jones will also be keeping a close eye on the outcome of Hughes’s hearing after the No8 was cited for a dangerous tackle on Harlequins’ young fly half Marcus Smith in the same match. England do not have a massive amount of cover in that position following injuries to Billy Vunipola and Jack Clifford.

Share on WhatsApp Harlequins Eddie Jones’s plans for the autumn Tests are in danger of being severely disrupted after three of his strongest forwards were cited following the weekend’s European fixtures. England’s captain, Dylan Hartley, the prop Joe Marler and the No8 Nathan Hughes must all now attend disciplinary hearings in London on Wednesday.Hartley, no stranger to judicial panels having racked up 60 weeks in suspensions during his career, has been cited for striking the head of the Clermont Auvergne prop Rabah Slimani as he cleared out a ruck in the first half of Northampton’s defeat on Saturday. The 31-year-old was sent to the sin-bin but World Rugby’s zero tolerance policy on head injuries has prompted the citing official, Scotland’s Douglas Hunter, to decide the hooker has a fresh case to answer. ‘Everything has to be earned,’ Dylan Hartley tells Saracens’ Jamie George Reuse this content Read more Support The Guardian Share on Twittercenter_img Read more Dylan Hartley Topics news Rugby union Share on Messenger Share via Email Share on LinkedIn Northampton England rugby union team Share on Pinterest Hughes, voted Sunday’s man of the match, would leave a sizeable hole if he were to be sidelined as well. The Wasps man received a citing commissioner’s warning only last month for striking the neck and face of Bath’s Taulupe Faletau while carrying the ball.Neither of the two in-form Premiership alternatives, Exeter’s Sam Simmonds and Bath’s Zach Mercer, have a cap between them and Jones has hitherto shown little inclination to revert to more experienced names like Gloucester’s Ben Morgan or Simmonds’ team-mate Thomas Waldrom.In addition to Marler, Harlequins have had another forward cited following Sunday’s 41-10 defeat. The flanker Dave Ward is alleged to have struck his opposite number Thomas Young with his head in the 47th minute and will also have his case heard in London on Wednesday.Quins’ England winger Marland Yarde has been relegated to the bench for the club’s A League game against Gloucester after being dropped from the first team for poor timekeeping.last_img read more

Country needs to do lot more for women empowerment in sports, says Sania Mirza

first_imgCountry needs to do lot more for women empowerment in sports, says Sania MirzaSania Mirza said the likes of Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu have done the country proud but there is still discrimination in sports. She believes women should be paid equal prize money with men.advertisement Next Press Trust of India New DelhiApril 13, 2019UPDATED: April 13, 2019 17:02 IST Ace tennis player Sania Mirza Saturday said India still needs to do a lot more to bring women at par with men in sports. (IANS Photo)Ace tennis player Sania Mirza Saturday said India still needs to do a lot more to bring women at par with men in sports, though the country has come a long way in this aspect.Sania, the first Indian woman tennis player to win a Grand Slam title in doubles and mixed doubles, said the likes of Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu have done the country proud but there is still ‘discrimination in sports.'”Today, we can name at least 10 superstar sportswomen like Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu, Mary Kom, Dipa Karmakar, Sakshi Malik. We could not do this 10 years ago. So, we have come a long way (in women empowerment in sports) but still a lot needs to be done for women in sports,” Sania said.”As much as we talk about women empowerment and equality (with men) I feel we still live in a man’s world to a large extent,” she said at a panel discussion ‘Women Shaping the Future,’ organised as part of the 35th annual session of the FICCI Ladies Organisation.Sania, who is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, gave the example of disparity in the prize money between men and women in most sports though she said it was a world-wide phenomenon.”I have been saying for long that women should be paid equal prize money with men. This discrimination is in all sports world wide. My question is why we even need to explain that women should have equal prize money with men. I want to reach that day when we don’t need to explain this,” said the 32-year-old who has won six Glam Slam titles in doubles and mixed doubles.advertisement”Even if I have made a small impact in the life of just one girl, I will feel proud,” she added.Sania said her only regret was “being a tennis player in the nation which loves cricket.”Talking about motherhood, Sania said, “Being a mother has made me realise that I have selfless love in me and made me a better person.”Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor Ahuja also spoke on the occasion while Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla was the chief guest.”It was a perfect platform for sharing best practices and experiences across 16 locations pan India, in a unified effort to play a catalytic role towards women empowerment. It also marks the ushering in a new year and continuing the legacy that FLO has walked upon, in the past 35 years of its existence,” said the outgoing FICCI Ladies Organisation President Pinky Reddy.Also Read | Sania Mirza eyes comeback to tennis by the end of yearAlso Read | Sports teaches you equality, respect and humanity: Sania MirzaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Toy Story 4 as profound as previous ones Hanks

first_imgLos Angeles: Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks says the upcoming film Toy Story 4 is as profound as the other instalments of the popular franchise. “The Toy Story films accomplish what timeless classics aim for,” Hanks said in a statement. “They are full of innocent characters who face an endless trail of adventures. We all know the likes of Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, and we wonder who we would be…if we were toys,” he added.

American Express buys restaurant reservation service Resy

NEW YORK — American Express is buying the online reservation startup Resy, the companies announced Wednesday, the latest move by AmEx to establish and maintain a foothold for its card members in some of the world’s most desired restaurants.AmEx and Resy, founded in 2014, declined to disclose the terms of the deal. However, in early 2017 Resy announced it raised $13 million from a group of investors that included Airbnb, valuing the company at around $70 million.New York-based Resy is an online reservation management service. It allows diners to make reservations and also serves as a platform for restaurants to manage their upcoming reservations. While OpenTable has a bigger market share, Resy often works with more exclusive restaurants that are harder to get into or serve higher-spending clientele.AmEx’s purchase comes as the credit card industry has shifted its marketing tactics in the last several years. Credit card companies want to be thought of as avenues to “experiences,” as the industry likes to say, such as travel and dining, concerts and Broadway shows. Instead of redeeming credit card points for a blender, AmEx and Chase say they want you to get a ticket to Paris. Hopefully the customer will then use that same credit card to reserve a Parisian hotel and dine. If you do want a blender, they do offerthemthough .While AmEx has long had an established presence in the travel industry — partnering with airlines like Delta, and hotel chains like Hilton and Marriott — its presence in dining is more in the background. It offers its Global Dining Collection to card members, where customers can get reservations at hard-to-get restaurants. AmEx says the top request on its concierge customer service line is for restaurant reservations.AmEx is eager to hold onto its card members in a market where it now competes directly with Chase’s Sapphire Reserve and Citi’s Prestige Cards. One way is to bolster its access to the restaurants where its card members want to dine.This is AmEx’s third acquisition of dining industry platforms in less than two years. In 2017 it bought Cake Technologies, a United Kingdom-based restaurant platform. In January, AmEx bought Pocket Concierge, which helps customers get reservations at exclusive restaurants in Japan.Ken Sweet, The Associated Press read more

CCTV shows rapist stalking his victim who he raped in attack amounting

first_img-Derry-MCCann Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Derry McCann The victim thought she would be murdered throughout the nightmare, but McCann ran off after making her stand still in the bushes.He was arrested after the victim described details of the attack to police which closely resembled his 2006 attack for which he received nine years too.The victim identified him in an ID parade six days later.CCTV showed McCann lurking in a park that night and he nearly assaulted another women earlier, who exited the park just as he was about to grab her.Judge Martyn Zeidman QC sentenced him to three concurrent life sentences for three counts of rape.He said: “Friday 13 January 2017 is a date that your victim will never forget.”Raping this victim in this way and doing it in a manner that amounted to torture, playing games, asking her what she thought you were going to do next and taunting her for almost two hours.”Adding to the psychological harm, you setup to degrade and humiliate her in ways that are so cruel and gross that I will not identify them further.”I’m worried that you might relish a recital of it.”Amazingly, just hours later you married your pregnant girlfriend.”I’m just wondering what sentence you would impose if someone had done this to your wife or a female friend of yours.”The wrongdoing in this case is made even worse by the serious violence you have carried out before.”There’s no doubt that this case requires a life sentence and any sentence needs to give sufficient protection to the public. A convicted sex attacker who raped a woman hours before marrying his pregnant fiance was given three life sentences on Friday.Derry McCann, 28, carried out the savage two-hour assault in the early hours of the morning before tying the knot.Judge Martyn Zeidman branded McCann a “monster” and described the rape as “amounting to torture” before jailing him for at least nine years.center_img “Parole will not consider your release until you have served nine years.”After nine years you will not be released, but the second stage of your sentence begins, and you may be in there forever if necessary.”I wish to pay tribute to the bravery and immense courage of the victim and its as a result of her immense courage that this dangerous criminal has been put away.”According to McCann’s defence barrister he has attempted suicide since being locked up in Belmarsh prison.Edmund Vickers QC, defending said: “He fully accepts the depravity of his offence.”He is devastated not about his current predicament but about the offence and the effect on the victim”.McCann was sentenced for nine years in 2006 for attacking a young lawyer, and a judge had said there was a “very substantial risk” he would strike again.But he was released on licence in December 2015 and was drinking with friends on the eve of his wedding.Kate Bex, earlier described the run up to the attack: “It was about midnight or just a little after and the victim was walking a short distance home having been out at an art gallery and socialising with friends.”She avoided walking through the middle of the park as that was too dangerous.”Unfortunately when near the exit to the park the defendant grabbed her arm and pulled her off the path to one side and began a sustained and systematic attack, penetration of every orifice accompanied by unusual conversation with the victim best described as mind games as an attempt to control her.” Describing the sex attacker’s previous conviction, the prosecutor added: “The oldest conviction may be of some relevance to the offence as the circumstances are very similar.”McCann was 17 and on a tag for burglary when he preyed on the 30-year-old trainee lawyer as she made her way home through another east London park in May 2006.After snatching the woman’s handbag he chillingly told an accomplice: “I’m gonna have some fun with this one.”He then dragged her down to the secluded banks of a pond in a park to inflict a string of disturbing sexual assaults. McCann attacked the 24-year-old woman in a park in east London, on January 13 this year after he was released from prison early for a similar attack.He married his fiance later that day and posted pictures of himself with his new wife on his public Facebook page.Just hours before, he had subjected his victim to a two hour ordeal, in which he toyed with his victim before raping her.Kate Bex, prosecuting, said: “McCann said he was just f****ing with her, demeaning her was clearly the theme of his interrogation.”When raping her he made her describe what was going on.”When she said they were having sex, he said ‘that’s not true, what’s happening?'”She responded ‘it’s rape, you’re raping me’.”He appeared to like her saying that.”She described him as clearly wanting to feel superior.”She described how she went to another place and in her head counting to 100 over and over again.”He said ‘what are they going to think of you now? Your boyfriend will never want to be with you now’.”This was a long drawn out psychological game.”last_img read more

Seabirds found with more than 250 pieces of plastic lodged in their

It was also thought to be responsible for The Queen’s decision to ban plastic bottles and straws from the Royal estates.In this latest BBC film, wildlife biologist, Liz Bonnin travels around the world to highlight the growing crisis facing the marine environment.She visits a group of scientists who have spent the last 12 years examining the world’s largest colony of flesh footed shearwaters in the Tasman Sea.Around 40,000 birds migrate to Lord Howe island each year to lay their eggs in burrows deep inside the rainforest.Researchers believe the birds consume more plastic than any other marine animal, the equivalent of a human eating around 10 kilograms. Shearwater birds often have dozens of pieces of plastic in their stomach Shearwater birds consume more plastic than any other marine creature By studying the impact this has on the birds, scientists hope they will learn more about how plastic could be harming all sea life.In the documentary the team can be seen pumping the stomachs of shearwater chicks and recovering a whole array of large and sharp plastic objects.But as well as the physical damage the objects cause to the birds, scientists claim they have now found evidence that suggests the chemicals in the plastic are interfering with the birds’ hormones. Shearwater birds consume more plastic than any other marine creature Plastics have been found in the systems of walruses Scientists examining the devastating impact plastics are having on the world’s oceans have identified seabirds with more than 250 man made objects lodged in their stomachs.From bottle tops to pen lids, the flesh footed shearwaters are thought to consume more plastic than any other marine animal.Often mistaking plastic objects floating in the sea for food, the adult birds pick them up and then feed them to their young, with disastrous consequences.Researchers working on Lord Howe island, off the coast of Australia, where the flesh footed shearwaters nest, claim that on average every chick has between 30 and 40 pieces of jagged plastic in their stomachs before they are fully fledged.–– ADVERTISEMENT –– But in one case scientists found a young bird with 260 separate items of plastic stuck in its gut.Even if the seabirds survive to leave the nest, the weight of the plastic resting in their stomach, means they are often too heavy to take off and many drown in the surf around the island.The shocking impact that pollution is having on the sheerwater population is revealed in a BBC documentary, Drowning in Plastic, which is being broadcast a year on from the landmark Blue Planet II series.Presented by Sir David Attenborough, Blue Planet II, was credited with raising international awareness of the threat posed by plastic pollution. Drowning in plastic will be broadcast on Monday October 1 Dr Jennifer Lavers, who leads the project, said the situation has worsened even in the last decade.She said: “The numbers have fluctuated, but definitely more and more of the birds have plastic in them and we are finding and increasing number of birds that are more heavily affected.”Quite a number of years ago the average numbers of pieces of plastic per bird may have been closer to five pieces per bird but now it is more likely to be closer to 30 or 40 pieces per bird, so things are shifting.” Over 200 marine species have been found to ingest plastic and work is being carried out to establish why.One theory, revealed in the documentary, is that algae growing on the surface of the plastic gives off a smell that attracts fish and other sea creatures.Tiny bits of plastic suspended in the water are thought to be mistaken for fish eggs, while plastic bags are often eaten in the belief that they are jellyfish. Plastic is thought to be getting into the food chain through marine life Plastic is thought to be getting into the food chain through marine life Plastics have been found in the systems of walruses Tom McDonald, Head of Commissioning, Natural History & Specialist Factual added: “Blue Planet II had an extraordinary impact in raising awareness of the threat of plastics to our oceans.”This powerful and emotional 90 minute special signals our continued commitment to exploring the challenges facing the natural world and bringing our audience the very latest research from the field on this incredibly important subject.”::  Drowning in Plastic is on BBC One on Monday 1st October at 8.30pm Drowning in plastic will be broadcast on Monday October 1 The film also looks at the impact of microplastics on the Arctic, examining how its presence in the food chain can be found all the way from plankton up to walruses.Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content said: “BBC One continues its mission to uncover the devastating impact plastics are having on our oceans in this special film that looks at one of the most significant and important environmental crises of our time.” Shearwater birds often have dozens of pieces of plastic in their stomach Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Eternal Sonata is Bizarre Even By JRPG Standards

first_img Review: ‘Fantasy Strike’ Is A Fighting Game That Understands…Game of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Best Video Games of 2018 Stay on target For too long the definition of “Game of the Year” has been unfairly narrow. How boring is it to see every website shower the same stale AAA games with praise at the end of each holiday season? So at Geek.com we’re doing what we can to put a stop to this in Game of the Year, a new column celebrating worthy alternative picks for the year’s greatest game regardless of genre, platform, year of release, or even quality. Here, any game can be Game of the Year!Outside of roguelikes, Japanese role-playing games are maybe the gaming genre I’m the least interested in. Earthbound is great. I can enjoy Pokemon about once per decade. And Final Fantasy XV’s larger failings can’t take away from my immense appreciation of Prompto Argentum. But I never feel motivated to complete these like 60-hour anime adventures driven by slow and tedious turn-based combat. I’m astonished how people want there to be not just one but two whole Mario spin-off JRPG franchises, considering the franchise’s totally opposite legacy of immediate platforming fun. At least roguelikes tend to have interesting mechanics you can experience in just a few short runs.But JRPGs do tend to be some of the most ridiculous video games out there. Their sheer length and scale requires a lot of absurd lore presented with a totally serious tone. How many times do you kill God in these? And that wackiness is something I can appreciate even without playing the games themselves. This week’s Game of the Year features a premise gloriously bizarre even by JRPG standards. Remember Eternal Sonata, aka, “Chopin the Video Game?”AdChoices广告Eternal Sonata’s story is so out there I legitimately thought I was hallucinating when I first heard it. Like a bastard offspring of Amadeus, Dragon Quest, and every awful fan theory that says the entire movie was really just a dream, Eternal Sonata takes place in the last moments of the mind of real-life famous classical composer Frédéric Chopin as he dies from tuberculosis in 1849. In Japan the game is called Trusty Bell: Chopin’s Dream, and I appreciate the honesty. Eternal Sonata as a title, while accurate, sounds almost embarrassed by the audacity of the plot.If you’re wondering how a Chopin JRPG would look and play, the answer is it’s not that different from any other JRPG of the era. You play as an anime interpretation of Chopin himself while party members are all named after music concepts and genres like Allegretto, Viola, and Jazz. They explore the world doing typical JRPG stuff like taking on quests and visiting shops, with rearrangements of Chopin’s music serving as a jumping off point for the piano soundtrack of course. The environments and architecture are also appropriately intricate and gorgeous considering the artistry of the music they are paired with.Music historians will appreciate the ways Eternal Sonata references events of Chopin’s actual life, the way a dream provides fantastical remixes of your own real experiences. Music, along with light and shadow, plays a role in the active “harmony” combat system. And there’s something to be said about a fictional game using a real person to hammer home its theme about escapism as a good remedy for bad realities. But just how weird it is that someone made a full-fledged RPG about the life of Chopin? That’s so weird!Eternal Sonata’s developer is Tri-Ace, a Square Enix subsidiary perhaps best known for the Star Ocean franchise of sci-fi JRPGs. Eternal Sonata was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2007, and that era wasn’t particularly kind to the genre. Japanese developers struggled to make the leap to pricey leap high-definition visuals, especially for long RPGs with lots of characters and expansive worlds. Again, the game that eventually became Final Fantasy XV was first announced in like 2006. So not only is Eternal Sonata’s entire… existence surprising, but so is its choice of platform. Weaker systems like the Nintendo Wii and DS acted as safe, profitable havens in a market otherwise obsessed with 720p.I’ve never played Eternal Sonata, and I never would, so I can’t really tell you if it’s worth actually picking up if you can find it. It got fairly high reviews at the time. But just knowing about it has entertained me far more than lots of other JRPGs I could name. So what’s next for the hot new “classical musician biography game” subgenre? A Mozart racing game? A Beethoven brawler? A John Cage game that’s just a blank disc?Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Moon landing tapes sell for 182 million

first_imgThe 2-inch Quadruplex videotapes are unrestored, unenhanced and unremastered.  Courtesy of Sotheby’s Three original NASA recordings of the first moon landing have been sold for $1.82 million. That’s more than 8,000 times the price they were last sold for at a government surplus auction in 1976, according to Sotheby’s. The latest auction coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on July 20.The 2-inch Quadruplex videotapes are unrestored, unenhanced and unremastered, the auction house said. They run a total of 2 hours and 24 minutes and capture moments including Neil Armstrong’s “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” declaration, as well as the “long-distance phone call” with President Richard Nixon and the planting of the American flag on the lunar surface. The auction house didn’t reveal who bought the tapes.  “The present videotapes are the only surviving first-generation recordings of the historic moon walk, and are sharper and more distinct than the few tapes that have survived from the contemporary network television broadcasts, all of which endured some loss of video and audio quality with each successive transmission from microwave tower to microwave tower,” Sotheby’s said. Also sold at the auction were items from Buzz Aldrin’s personal collection for $739,375, including the first and last pages of the Apollo 11 flight plan for $175,000 and $131,250, respectively; a collection of 20 original Apollo Firing Room Control Panels from the Kennedy Space Center Firing Room 1 for $212,500; and a collage of Apollo 11 memorabilia for $225,000.

Sealaska offers burial cremation assistance to shareholders

first_imgSealaska Board Chairman Joe Nelson poses at corporate headquarters in Juneau after he was elected to the position in June 2014. Nelson announced a new shareholder burial assistance program on Monday. (Photo by Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)Sealaska is helping its shareholders with burial and cremation costs. The Southeast regional Native corporation’s board voted Monday to offer bereavement benefits of up to $1,000.Listen nowLosing a loved one is difficult enough on its own. Add the cost of a funeral, burial or cremation and it can be too much to handle.A thousand dollars isn’t enough to cover all expenses, which can easily top $10,000. But it can help.Sealaska Board of Directors Chairman Joe Nelson said the corporation’s increased earnings allow it to offer the benefit.“This is one that’s been out there for a long time and we haven’t been able to get there. But this year, because of our financial performance and our anticipated continued solid performance, that I think everybody in the company’s just excited that we’re able to move on this one this year,” Nelson said.Survivors will receive $1,000 when an original shareholder dies. That covers those enrolled in the corporation since it formed in the early 1970s.Descendants of original shareholders, and those who inherited or were given stock, will receive up to that amount. The corporation said payments will be based on the number of voting shares at the time of the shareholder’s death.Nelson said the board took action now because it has a new source of revenue.“It’s a function of being in a healthy financial position and then having the specific carbon project where we want to associate that carbon program to a benefit that all shareholders will feel for generations to come,” Nelson said.That project allows Sealaska to sell carbon offset credits through a program based in California. It’s complicated, but basically, the corporation keeps some of its forests intact, in exchange for payments from polluters.Shareholder bereavement benefits began May 7, the day Sealaska’s board of directors approved the new program.“I think this is fantastic news for shareholders,” Nicole Hallingstad said. Hallingstad is a former Sealaska corporate secretary who’s running for the board as an independent candidate. She’s among other candidates and corporate critics who’ve called for bereavement benefits.“The most important thing about this announcement is that it just proves that when shareholders are united and are persistent in their voice in raising an issue, that we can actually accomplish the change that we’re asking for,” Hallingstad said.Nelson said a recent survey showed the benefit among shareholders’ top priorities. It was outranked by scholarships and dividends.“Whenever we go out in the communities, just in our regular shareholder engagement, it is a regular theme — that a lot of folks could use help with burial assistance. And it’s also part of our cultural values, especially in Southeast, where we come together and support each other during times when someone passes,” Nelson said.Some other regional Native corporations already provide a similar benefit.Nelson said the mechanics of payments are being worked out, but applications will be available sometime in June.Sealaska estimates around 300 shareholders die every year. The corporation has between 22,000 and 23,000 shareholders.last_img read more

Central Valley businesses misleading customers report finds

first_imgMore than half of the hotels in the Greater Metropolitan Area of ​​Costa Rica either do not provide accurate information to consumers, or actively conceal it, according to a study by the Economy Ministry.The study, made public on Tuesday, was conducted from April-September in 57 hotels, restaurants and shops in the provinces of San José, Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago.

The Richmond Spiders played the likes of Sam Houst

first_imgThe Richmond Spiders played the likes of Sam Houston State, Colgate, Towson and Villanova last year — not exactly college football stalwarts.Yet, the competition hasn’t weighed down the draft prospects of their quarterback, Kyle Lauletta.After completing 65 percent of his passes for 3,737 yards while throwing 28 touchdowns to 12 picks in 2017, then taking home Senior Bowl MVP honors, Lauletta appears to be building his stock through the draft evaluation process. Huesman doesn’t know how Lauletta compares to NFL quarterbacks or the other prospects in the draft.But he does believe Lauletta has the tools to succeed as a pro.“I’ve never been in the NFL. I know they’re all good,” Huesman told Doug & Wolf. “But I can say one thing: When I got here, Kyle just looked like a quarterback to me. I’ve been doing this a long time and seen guys come and go. Kyle just had that presence about him. Everything from footwork to how he spins the ball, he looked like a quarterback from Day 1.“He’s a bright, bright guy. I know it’s different: There’s book smarts, there’s street smarts, there’s football smarts. I think he’s got all of that. A student in the classroom, a student of the game.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has the New England Patriots picking Lauletta in the second round (63rd overall), while colleague Todd McShay has New England taking him in the third round (95th overall).Operating under four different offensive coordinators in four years, Richmond spent most of Lauletta’s career in a shotgun, no-huddle offense with plays called in from the sidelines.“We were always a quarterback run, power-read (offense) until last year,” Huesman said. “We got away from that and went to more one-back run stuff and let him throw the ball around.”Huesman estimated that in his offense, Lauletta had to read the entire field about 40 percent of the time. The other times, he made decisions on where to throw pre-snap.The Spiders were aggressive down the field, and Lauletta flashed skill on deep balls despite NFL scouts knocking the 6-foot-3, 215-pound quarterback’s arm strength.“He’s got a good enough arm,” Huesman said. “It’s not a rocket and it’s not the laser throws. I’ll tell you what, he throws a pretty ball. It spins, it’s catchable.”It showed in highlight reels throughout the season and in the Senior Bowl, when Lauletta completed 8-of-12 passes for 198 yards and three touchdowns, including a 75-yard touchdown pass against a broken coverage. His South team beat a North team led by high-profile quarterback prospects Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma and Josh Allen of Wyoming, 45-16. Richmond head coach Russ Huesman told Doug & Wolf on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station that he saw a natural ability in Lauletta since the quarterback arrived at school.“A leader, a competitor, a guy that loves football. All the intangibles, what you want a quarterback to look like, play like, lead like,” Huesman said Wednesday. “Kyle just kind of commanded the football team in a way that was never belligerent to his players. He never made excuses.“He’d be sitting at the wide receivers table with them and going over things with them. He was always trying to be as good as he could himself, but he was always bringing people with him.”Related LinksArizona Cardinals expected to have Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta visitA quarterback rich 2018 NFL Draft awaits the CardinalsMcShay’s perfect NFL mock draft provides realistic outlook for CardinalsLauletta could be a realistic draft option for the quarterback-needy Arizona Cardinals, who in the first round might not feel like reaching on a the fourth, fifth or sixth quarterback off the board at No. 15 overall.Arizona also has the 47th, 79th and 97th overall picks, right in the range of where analysts see Lauletta getting drafted.The Cardinals are expected to bring Lauletta in for a visit prior to the draft, reported 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro. 3 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more

Doctor used medical mannequin to inflate ICU numbers – reports

first_imgA probe into possible squandering of public money in state hospitals revealed that ICU numbers were inflated by using a medical mannequin to keep at least one bed occupied so that patients could be referred to the private sector for kickbacks, Simerini reported on Sunday.The revelation came a day after two state doctors were remanded in custody for eight days. Police on Friday arrested the head of the ENT department and executive director of Nicosia general hospital Yiannakis Kyamides in connection with taking backhanders to refer patients to a private hearing clinic in Nicosia.Authorities also detained a second doctor, Vasken Shahbenderian, who worked at the state hospital’s ENT department too. A third arrest warrant was issued against another doctor who is currently abroad and was expected to return to Cyprus in the coming week.According to Simerini on Sunday, authorities are investigating six cases of squandering of public funds by state hospitals.One is being investigated by the auditor-general’s office, four by the health ministry for possible disciplinary offences, and one by the police.All probes concern cases reported the last two years.The case being investigated by the auditor general’s office concerns an intensive care specialist doctor who was allegedly giving false information as to the occupancy of his ICU’s beds so that patients could be referred to the private sector.The paper said the probe showed that the data he provided on the bed occupancy forms did not match that of patients’ admissions and discharges.According to Simerini, a health ministry official discovered in October, during an inspection at the ICU in question, after they were told that the unit had reached full capacity, that one bed was occupied by a medical mannequin. The explanation given was that it was being used for training, the report said.As to the doctor under investigation, when asked by the auditor-general’s office why he was buying services from the private sector even though his ICU was not full, he allegedly said that he wanted to have available beds in cases of emergencies.He was also reportedly mainly using the services of one private hospital, which was buying its supplies from a pharmacy owned by his wife, Simerini said.The daily said that until October 2015, when the health ministry upped controls, the annual cost for the use of ICU services from the private sector, amounted to approximately €3m. Following the intervention of the health ministry, referrals to private sector ICUs were reduced it said.The other cases include an investigation into a neurosurgeon and an orthopaedic doctor, both state doctors, who were allegedly receiving bribes from patients. A paediatrician is also reportedly under investigation for allegedly acting as a middleman between private companies offering health services, and whose shareholders included immediate relatives of his. It was also reported that while he worked in the public sector, the doctor had an active role in the management of those companies and participated in their meetings and conferences.The health ministry said on Saturday it was determined to stamp out corruption.“We await the outcome of the investigations and … reaffirm the health ministry’s determination to stamp out all corruption,” it said in a written statement.Such events, the ministry said, highlighted the need for full reform of the public health sector because the current system did not promote transparency or help fight corruption.In any case, and until full reform was achieved, the ministry would continue to display zero tolerance to corruption, the statement said. You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
