first_imgSEC Divisions team logos.If the SEC decides to realign its divisions for football, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn would be fine with the Tigers moving to the SEC East. The 50-year-old coach told ESPN’s Chris Low, “I think there will be discussion on that.”The SEC is currently split into two seven-team divisions, with Auburn being in the SEC West, along with in-state rival Alabama. If the SEC shuffles things, @CoachGusMalzahn wouldn’t be opposed to Auburn moving to the East. “I think there will be discussion on that.”— Chris Low (@ClowESPN) April 13, 2016The SEC has already set its conference games through 2025, so realignment before then seems fairly unlikely. A move to the other side of the conference would certainly not end the Alabama-Auburn yearly Iron Bowl game, but it probably would end the yearly Alabama-Tennessee game. Unless the SEC changes its rules with a realignment, there would be only one set cross-divisional opponent for each team. And the Tigers’ opponent would surely be the Crimson Tide. Which team from the SEC East should move to the SEC West if the Tigers do, in fact, switch sides?last_img read more

Wednesday, just days after it was announced by head coach Jim Harbaugh that the freshman wide receiver would be suspended indefinitely, Mitchell announced on Twitter that he’d be leaving the program.“It’s been all love from the fans, community, and the people of Michigan. I’ve made bonds and friendships with people here that will last a lifetime. I love what U of M had to offer me but, what is best for me and my family comes first. Therefore I will like to announce that I am hereby reopening my recruitment to all Universities and football programs.”Mitchell specifically stated that he’s “reopening’ his recruitment. But since he’s been enrolled at Michigan since January, this would have to be considered a transfer.All love for the people of Michigan and U of M ??— Ahmir_SoDevoted (@TheDeuce_2_Nice) August 24, 2016Mitchell is a class of 2016 player who was rated as a four-star composite.

first_imgStory Highlights Minister Paulwell hailed the Jamaica Alternative Energy Expo and Conference JPSCo has reported a significant reduction in the use of electricity over the last two years The benefits from the use of alternative and renewable energy across Jamaica are beginning to flow Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining (STEM), Hon. Phillip Paulwell,  says the benefits from the use of alternative and renewable energy across Jamaica are beginning to flow, and will amount to savings in the country’s oil importation bill.“The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo) is telling me that there has been a significant reduction in the use of electricity in the country over the last two years.  This means that people are actually now paying less for electricity, and that we are going to see, I believe this year, savings in the total amount of money we spend on imported fossil fuel,” the Minister said.In an interview with JIS News, following a tour of some 50 booths at the Jamaica Alternative Energy Expo and Conference, at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, in St. James, on September 20, Mr. Paulwell said that if the demand is reducing as rapidly as is being reported by the JPSCo., then the benefits will be evident in the near future.The two-day conference and energy expo showcase the latest in technology on how to counter high energy and utility bills.Minister Paulwell described the expo as an excellent one, adding that he was very pleased that almost all the businesses with exhibits have told him that they are doing well economically.“They have attributed that largely to the removal of taxation, both import duties and GCT, that we were able to effect last year, and also the marketing and advocacy that the Ministry have been doing,” he said.The Minister appealed to the wider Western Jamaica community to support the expo, and start to adopt some of the cost saving systems that are being exhibited.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – During the CFL regular season, Conrad Brock and Mike Hassel are bitter rivals.Brock, a Saskatchewan native who lives in New Brunswick, bleeds Roughrider green. His long-time friend Hassel carries a small plastic horse wherever he goes in honour of his beloved Calgary Stampeders.At Sunday’s Grey Cup, however, they will be on the same side.With Brock’s Roughriders not in the big game, he’ll support his friend’s club when they face off against the Toronto Argonauts in the CFL showcase.“I think it’s a bit of a love-hate relationship,” Brock said of his friendship with Hassel.The two pals take verbal jabs at each other when it’s game time, but tone down the taunts when the footballs are put away, said Brock’s wife Sally, a convert to CFL fandom after she met her husband in Moncton.“Part of the friendship is being able to trash talk each other’s team during the season and then (other times) they still do that, but it’s good natured,” she said.While the Brocks are favouring Calgary, the same can’t be said of another Roughriders fan.Moose Jaw’s Elaine Johnson arrived in Ottawa on Thursday, just in time to celebrate her 70th birthday. And since she can’t see her beloved Roughriders play, she’ll cheer for the Argonauts instead.“I was hoping that Saskatchewan was in it, but now I’m a Toronto fan all of a sudden,” said Johnson, who laughed as her young grandson David piped in to predict a Calgary win.“Once it comes to Grey Cup time, it’s just a great opportunity to meet fans from all across the country, really,” she said as members of a Roughriders pep band pursed their lips to trumpets and other cold brass instruments outside Ottawa’s TD Place Stadium.Some Calgary fans, including Hassel, see this year’s championship as a rematch of the 2012 finale that saw Toronto defeat Calgary 35-22.“It is payback time,” said Hassel, who was there five years ago and at last year’s championship, where Calgary was defeated by the Ottawa Redblacks.“They know better now,” he said of this year’s Stampeders. “They’ve learned their lessons twice. Third time’s the charm.”The Grey Cup is just one of many big ticket events Ottawa is hosting this year, including celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation and the NHL’s 100th anniversary. But that doesn’t mean football has taken a back seat.“It’s a big deal for us from a celebratory point of view, but also from a tourism and economic development point of view,” said Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson.“This is big dollars that are coming into the local economy.”Since the arrival of the trophy Tuesday, there have been a number of activities leading up to game day, including a four-day-long street party at the city’s Lansdowne Park and concerts until Sunday.Canadian pop-country star Shania Twain will perform at halftime Sunday and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, along with his family, is expected to be among the VIPs in attendance.It will be the first Grey Cup for Julie Payette since being sworn in as governor general. She’ll kick off the game with the traditional coin toss.The weather forecast for game day calls for a few flurries and temperatures reaching -2 C.last_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment NEW YORK—A television actress best known for playing a young Superman’s close friend pleaded not guilty Friday to sex trafficking after federal prosecutors said she worked as a slave “master” recruiting unsuspecting women to a cult-like group led by a man who sold himself as a self-improvement guru to the stars.Allison Mack was accused in an indictment unsealed by the federal court in Brooklyn. She entered her plea and was remanded to custody after Judge Cheryl Pollak refused a request from Mack’s lawyers to release her without bail.Mack, 35, starred in the CW network’s Smallville. Since that series ended in 2011, she has played only minor roles. Prosecutors said she helped recruit women for leader Keith Raniere and his cult-like organization called NXIVM. She told the women they were joining what was purported to be a female mentorship group, prosecutors said. Advertisement But “the victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labour,” according to federal prosecutors.“Mack and other … masters recruited … slaves by telling them that they were joining a women-only organization that would empower them and eradicate purported weaknesses the NVIVM curriculum taught were common in women,” prosecutors said.Prosecutors said she required women she recruited to engage in sexual activity with Raniere, who paid Mack in return. Allison Mack told women they were joining what was purported to be a female mentorship group, prosecutors said.

first_imgCANSO, N.S. – A researcher says Canada’s first proposed spaceport in Canso, N.S., is a potential threat to migratory birds.John Kearney, an adjunct professor at Dalhousie University, says he’s concerned that lighting at the $200-million site could confuse birds and delay their migration.“When you put lights in such a place, birds are attracted to those lights and recent studies have shown that they can have quite a strong impact on birds’ migratory behaviour,” Kearney said in an interview.“It can result in them flying around the lights to the point of exhaustion. In some cases they can collide with whatever structure is supporting the light,” he said.In a blog post this month, Kearney said he also thinks there could be a loss of stop-over and breeding habitat for a number of bird species including the whimbrel and the willet.Maritime Launch Services Ltd. wants to start construction next year on a launch site that could eventually see as many as 12 satellites blast into orbit per year.Stephen Matier, president of Maritime Launch, said Kearney has never contacted his company to express his concerns or learn details of what the company is planning.“I don’t really understand what his concerns are. How can you even have issues or concerns without having some understanding what the project is actually doing or planning as far as night lighting or what have you?” Matier said from his office in New Mexico.Matier said one of the reasons the site was chosen was because previous environmental assessments done for a neighbouring Canso wind farm showed no issues for migratory birds.“We based part of our decision to go forward for this launch site based on the fact it had all these other studies that were done. They looked at moose, they looked at bats, they looked at migratory birds,” Matier said.Kearney said the neighbouring wind farm actually complicates the situation, because birds could hit the spinning turbines if they are drawn to lights nearby.But Matier said there have been very few bird kills at the wind farm since it opened.“I think there’s like half a dozen in two years, so it’s not like there’s any major issues that have come about as a result of the wind farm,” Matier said.He said his company is doing its own studies and hopes the province will approve an environmental assessment plan early next year.Maritime Launch Services is aiming for a first round of launches in 2021 and 2022.During a news conference in Halifax last week, officials said each launch of the Cyclone-4M medium lift rockets would take up to two minutes, and from three kilometres away would sound no louder than a commercial aircraft.The project is a private-sector venture, but will require the province’s environmental approvals and further regulatory approvals for launching procedures.— By Kevin Bissett in Fredericton.last_img read more
