Narine’s bowling action reported again

first_imgWest Indian spinner Sunil Narine’s bowling action was again reported on Thursday, during the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) Twenty 20, according to an AFP news bulletin. “Narine has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during Wednesday’s PSL Twenty20 game between Lahore Qalanders and Quetta Gladiators at Sharjah,” said a Pakistan Cricket Board statement.“The match officials’ report on Narine’s bowling action will be sent to Cricket West Indies (CWI) and he will have to go through the process that is followed by the CWI, for suspected illegal bowling actions,” the statement continued.According to the AFP release, the 29-year-old Narine, who plays for the Lahore Qalandars, was placed on the warning list, but can continue to participate in the tournament. He was first reported for an illegal action during the Champions League in India in 2014, and as a precaution, his name was withdrawn from the West Indies squad for the 2015 World Cup. He returned to the game after remodeling his action. Narine was subsequently reported in November, 2016 during an international match in Sri Lanka, the AFP release stated. He was suspended after biomechanical tests proved that his action was beyond the fifteen (15) degree limit allowed under the International Cricket Council’s rules.Narine was cleared in April 2017, in time for the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he plays for Kolkatta Knight Riders. This latest report may jeopardise his participation in this year’s IPL season, starting early next month. Sunil Narine has played six Tests, 65 One Day Internationals and 48 Twenty20slast_img read more

98-year-old Sister Jean licenses name, image for Loyola; already has ‘bestselling bobblehead ever’

first_img Related Rock Em Apparel(CHICAGO) — Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the famous 98-year-old superfan and chaplain of the Loyola-Chicago University basketball team that is on a winning streak in the NCAA Final Four has given permission to license her name and image for her beloved Ramblers.Loyola has approved more than 25 Sister Jean T-shirts from a variety of companies including Fanatics, which made a Final Four shirt with her phrase, “Worship, Work and Win,” reported ESPN.Some of the companies are seeing major sales increases since announcing their Sister Jean merchandise.“It is our bestselling bobblehead ever,” said Phil Sklar, CEO of the Milwaukee-based National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which has made about 500 different bobbleheads in the last three years.“I think Sister Jean has really captivated the nation,” Sklar said, adding that over 65 percent of sales are coming from outside Illinois. “Within 24 hours, we sold at least one bobblehead to someone in all 50 states, D.C., Canada, and the United Kingdom.”The company has been approved to sell Sister Jean bobbleheads and they’ve already had over 6,000 orders since they went on sale three days ago. The previous record was held by the Clemson National Champions bobblehead with 3,000 units sold.Another company is rapidly selling Sister Jean socks.“This is definitely the oldest person and most interesting character that we have put on a sock ever,” Rob Starkman, founder of Rock ‘Em Apparel told ABC News. “It’s great to see her enthusiasm for the [basketball] program turn into the nation’s enthusiasm for her character.”Sister Jean has drawn a huge following for her devotion to her team, attending every game while praying for the players, their health, a fair game, and a victory.She has said she trusts the school to make the decisions on licensing her name and image, ESPN reported.“We weren’t going to do anything until she gave her blessing,” Tom Sorboro, a senior associate athletic director at the school, told ESPN about the decision to begin licensing the nun’s image and name.Licensing royalties for Sister Jean products, except for the bobblehead, are set up to support the Loyola Athletic Fund, according to ESPN.Proceeds from the bobblehead sales are split between the school’s fund and Sister Jean’s Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sklar said.Rock ‘Em Apparel had as of Monday sold thousands of pairs of Sister Jean socks after they had been on sale less than 24 hours.“It’s just crazy because we got the license at 11 p.m. on Saturday,” Starkman said. “Our designers whipped up the design and the school approved them within 30 minutes. Then, it was off to races.”A portion of the sock sales go back into the Loyola-Chicago athletic program, Starkman said.Fanatics, meanwhile, has sold more Loyola products in the past 48 hours than in the rest of season combined, a spokesperson for the company told ESPN.There are also unlicensed designs, including shirts that put Sister Jean on the Air Jordan logo and a shirt takes the basketball brand And1’s logo and makes it “AndNun,” reported ESPN.The Ramblers take on Michigan on Saturday in San Antonio.Both ABC News and ESPN are owned by the Walt Disney Company.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

RB Todd Gurley gets $60 million contract extension from Rams

first_imgIn this Nov. 12, 2017, file photo, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley pushes away Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney during the first half of an NFL football game, in Los Angeles.  (AP Photo/Alex Gallardo, File) IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Todd Gurley was the key to the Los Angeles Rams’ offensive transformation last season, and the Rams have rewarded their star running back with a game-changing contract. The NFL’s offensive player of the year agreed to a four-year, $60 million contract extension through 2023 with the Rams on Tuesday.A person with knowledge of the deal, speaking on condition of anonymity because the terms weren’t publicly announced, confirmed to The Associated Press that Gurley’s contract extension contains $45 million in guaranteed money, a $20 million signing bonus and the NFL’s largest average annual value for a running back contract. ESPN first reported the terms.General manager Les Snead said the Rams wanted “to get ahead of the curve” by signing Gurley two years before his rookie contract expires. They’ve also set a new benchmark for running back salaries to secure a cornerstone of a team with Super Bowl aspirations.“He’s a big part of who we are and where we’re going,” Snead said. “It’s not only Todd, but a lot of guys we want to make Rams for a long time and be part of our core.”Gurley isn’t due to report to training camp at UC Irvine until Wednesday. His first public reaction was to post a black-and-white Instagram photo of himself with a broad smile and the caption: “Amazing…”Gurley was a league standout in his third NFL season while playing in first-year coach Sean McVay’s explosive offense. He finished second in the NFL with 1,305 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns while catching 64 passes for 788 yards and six more TDs.“What a special player he is,” McVay said. “I think last year’s production isn’t really a (complete) reflection of the value he provides, because he did such a great job, but he’s so much more than that to our team — the way that he competes in protection, the way that he works, and the way that rubs off on his teammates.”Along with being a handsome reward for a burgeoning NFL star, Gurley’s deal sets a new standard in the market for ball-carriers such as Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliott and Arizona’s David Johnson — and for Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell after he plays out this season on the franchise tag.Bell, who received public support from Gurley during his contentious recent negotiations with the Steelers, returned the love on Twitter, along with an additional comment about his own failure to get a big contract in Pittsburgh: “lol and ppl thought I was trippin?”Gurley was the offensive rookie of the year in 2015 for the Rams, rewarding their gamble on him with the 10th overall pick. He overcame a torn knee ligament in his final season with the Georgia Bulldogs to rush for 1,106 yards with St. Louis.Gurley struggled as part of the NFL’s worst offense during the Rams’ relocation season in 2016, with his yards-per-carry average dropping from 4.8 to 3.2.That average shot right back up to 4.7 last season while he starred for the NFC West champions behind a stout offensive line that had the same starters for 15 consecutive weeks. Gurley likely would have won the NFL rushing title if McVay hadn’t rested him for the Rams’ regular-season finale ahead of their playoff loss to Atlanta.Gurley has also grown swiftly as a receiver in his three seasons, increasing his catches from 21 as a rookie to 43 and then 64 last season.Gurley’s contributions to the Rams last season drew praise from Eric Dickerson, the most popular player in Los Angeles Rams history for his 1980s exploits as a record-setting running back. Steven Jackson, the Rams’ franchise rushing leader, also hailed Gurley’s contract Tuesday on Twitter.“Great to see Les Snead and the @RamsNFL front office prioritize the running game!” Jackson tweeted. “To not only draft (Gurley) early, but now lock him into a long-term deal to ensure he continues to thrive as a Ram is huge!”The Rams haven’t been shy about securing several key pieces of their talented roster during this offseason, which began with the high-profile additions of Ndamukong Suh and cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. Last week, Los Angeles signed receiver Brandin Cooks to a five-year, $80 million extension before he catches his first pass with the Rams.But an even bigger issue still looms for Los Angeles: defensive tackle Aaron Donald still doesn’t have a new contract two days before the first practice of training camp.Donald, the NFL’s defensive player of the year, and the Rams have been working on a long-term extension since early last year. The powerhouse lineman is seeking a game-changing contract that would make him one of the NFL’s highest-paid players, but hasn’t yet been successful.Donald skipped all of training camp last year in a holdout, and he missed all of the Rams’ offseason activities this spring.Snead and McVay acknowledged Donald might not report to training camp Wednesday, but they weren’t sure about his plans. Snead is still in active negotiations with Donald’s representatives at CAA Sports.“I do know we’ve still got time to get something done,” Snead said.Donald is under contract for this season for nearly $6.9 million in the fifth year of his rookie contract.“We’re simultaneously working to make Aaron a Ram a long time,” Snead said. “That’s the goal. Aaron is a big part of who we are, where we want to go, but the details and all that, we’re going to continue the course of keeping them in-house.”___For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

Baby law revise

first_imgLos Angeles County’s Safe Surrender ordinance, which Knabe helped establish in 2002, allows a parent, or someone designated by a parent, to drop off their baby at any county fire station or hospital emergency room within 72 hours of birth. Since 2002, 45 infants have been surrendered in Los Angeles County. The bill to expand it to 30 days was authored by Assemblyman Alberto Torrico, D-Newark, after a dead infant less than a week old was found in a Jack-in-the-Box trash bin near his house. Last month, in Pico Rivera, members of a local American Legion post discovered a baby boy, with umbilical cord still attached, outside the post, wrapped in a blanket. The child was alive and was in the county’s custody. In his veto message, Schwarzenegger said current state law sufficiently addresses the problem. “Some experts have raised concerns about this bill, which I share, that instead of improving child safety, increasing the time that a baby may be surrendered from 72 hours to 30 days, will have the opposite effect, putting newborns in greater risk by keeping them in an unsafe environment without proper care and supervision,” the governor said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe on Monday applauded Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s decision to veto a bill that would have given new mothers 30 days to surrender their unwanted babies under the Safe Surrender Law. Schwarzenegger vetoed AB 1873 Friday. The bill would have extended the “safe surrender” period from 72 hours to a month for parents who want to leave their babies at hospitals and fire stations. “Extending the window from 72 hours to 30 days could have created serious medical issues,” Knabe said. “Access to quality medical care in the first hours of life is an absolutely critical component that could have been placed in jeopardy had this legislation gone through.” last_img read more

Reality TV meets community self-help

first_img9 September 2009 Kwanda, a world first “community makeover” TV show, began flighting on South African television this month. The extraordinary series follows five teams of volunteers working together to tackle common challenges faced by South African communities. The show follows five volunteer teams that were recruited across South Africa a few months ago, and have since been working in their communities to try to reduce new HIV infections, reduce alcohol abuse and alcohol-related violence, help orphans and vulnerable children, generate income and create job opportunities. In tracking the journeys of the five teams, the series will give its audience inspiration and concrete ideas for taking action themselves, as well as contact information for helping people in their own communities. The five Kwanda teams are in Pefferville near East London in the Eastern Cape, Mthwalume near Port Shepstone in KwaZulu-Natal, Tjakastad near Barberton in Mpumalanga, Lephephane near Tzaneen in Limpopo province, and Kwakwatsi near Sasolburg in Free State province. Each participating community chose 50 participants who underwent five weeks of training in a special learning camp, acquiring new skills, learning how to organise themselves, and developing a plan for their community. Ten of the participants from each community also underwent training in fashion design and sewing, so that they could become part of an innovative fashion project, Kwanda Klothing, which will be launched during the TV series. At the end of the series, in a one-hour finale to be broadcast live on SABC 1 on Wednesday, 25 November, the television audience will vote to decide which team has achieved the most in transforming their community. The winning team will receive a major prize. Kwanda has been created by the Soul City Institute in partnership with the Department of Social Development and SABC 1, as well as the Department of Health, BP Southern Africa, the MTN Foundation, the British goverment’s Department of International Development, the US President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (Pepfar), and the South African Local Government Association. “Kwanda means ‘wealth’ and ‘growth’, and is first programme of this type on television worldwide,” Soul City acting executive Antoinette Ntuli said in a statement last week. “Kwanda promises high emotion and drama which is intended to inspire people to make a difference.” Launching the groundbreaking project last week, Deputy Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini called on communities countrywide to follow the examples of the Kwanda teams. “Kwanda is a powerful new approach to engaging communities in sustainable development and promoting sustainable livelihoods,” Dlamini said. “It shows that South Africans still have the capacity to think out of the box and out of our institutions in our collective effort to develop our country.” “Kwanda, Communities with Soul” airs on SABC 1 at 9pm on on Wednesdays, with repeats at 11am on Thursdays.

Interview and Interrogation Training: Preparation for an Interview

first_imgThis week’s International Association of Interviewers interview and interrogation training tip provided by Wicklander-Zulawski, has Dave Thompson, CFI, discussing the importance of preparing and planning before you walk into an interview.Often, investigators are tasked with interviews that have to happen in real time, or they tend to shortcut an investigation. Remember how important the investigative process is before you conduct an interview.Some things you want to think about before you sit down with a subject:- Sponsor – Have you tried to investigate what their motive might have been for committing the act or the crime?Have you thought about potential excuses or explanations?Are there things you might want to investigate further so you can eliminate the subject’s ability to use them as an excuse? OR Could that excuse actually be viable?Most importantly, have you done a thorough enough investigation to make sure you’re not about to sit down with an innocent person?If we could spend some more time investigating and trying to eliminate innocent subjects, before we sit down with someone and falsely accuse the wrong person, it would have a tremendous impact on the success of your investigations. Next time you’re about to walk into an interview or an interrogation, ask yourself if you’ve done everything you can before you walk into that room. If you don’t have time to do something right the first time, when are you going to have time to do it again?Spend some time to do your investigation, and at the end, hopefully, that will result in a better case resolution.Every loss prevention investigator should continuously strive to enhance their investigative interviewing skills as part of an ongoing commitment to best-in-class interviewing performance. This includes holding ourselves to an elite standard of interview and interrogation training that is ethical, moral and legal while demanding excellence in the pursuit of the truth. The International Association of Interviewers (IAI) and Wicklander-Zulawski (WZ) provide interview and interrogation training programs and additional guidance to investigators when dealing with dishonest employees, employee theft, sexual harassment, policy violations, building rapport, pre-employment interviewing, lying, denials and obtaining a statement.By focusing on the latest information and research from experts in the field as well as academia, legal and psychological resources, these video tips provide interview and interrogation training techniques that can enhance the skill sets of professionals with backgrounds in law enforcement, loss prevention, security, asset protection, human resources, auditors or anyone looking to obtain the truth.To learn more about interview and interrogation training and how you can further develop your professional skill sets, please visit www.w-z.com or www.certifiedinterviewer.com for additional information.

Milito: ‘Icardi exit a good deal’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Diego Milito insists Inter fans only care about Antonio Conte’s “greatness” and that Mauro Icardi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain was “a good deal for everyone”. Milito is happy to see Inter back in contention for the Scudetto and doesn’t care if Conte’s past lies with arch-rivals Juventus, with whom he won titles as both a player and coach. “The coach’s past doesn’t interest us Inter fans,” the Nerazzurri hero told Gazzetta dello Sport. “He is a great coach, I don’t have any doubts about that and he’s showing why he is one. “We are happy when we see our team play proactive football and continuing to win.” Icardi left the club on bad terms over the summer, joining PSG on loan with option to buy, but his fellow Argentine believes the right decision was made. “I’d say it ended well. Beyond how we might judge it from the outside, his exit was a good deal for everyone, for Mauro who went to Paris and is doing very well, but also for Inter who replaced him in the correct way.”last_img read more
