Video: Indiana Signee Ogugua Anunoby Throws Down A Sick Between-The-Legs Dunk

first_imgIndiana Signee Ogugua Aunoby dunks after going between the legs.Indiana Signee Ogugua AunobyWith the returns of James Blackmon and Yogi Ferrell, as well as the addition of five-star big man Thomas Bryant, Indiana projects as a top-20 team next season. Bryant and four-star Juwan Morgan are the big names of the Hoosiers’ incoming freshman class, but a third frontcourt player, Ogugua Anunoby, has some talent of his own. Anunoby, a 6-foot-8 three-star small forward from Jefferson City (Mo.), posted this video to his Instagram tonight. It was re-posted by the Indiana men’s basketball program’s official Instagram, and it features Anunoby throwing down an impressive, 180-degree between-the-legs dunk. Pretty good.

Meet Samuel Chukwueze: Villarreal’s Nigerian rising star

first_imgFew young international players have made such an immediate impact in LaLiga in recent years as Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze, with the 19-year-old Nigeria international already looking key to his club’s chances of success this season.Ikwuano-born Chukwueze came a long way very fast following his LaLiga debut against Levante in early November, having scored his first senior goal for the club in a Copa del Rey tie against Almeria a few days previously.A first LaLiga goal arrived on November 11, when he drove into the area and dribbled past two defenders before firing low through the legs of Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski.

A second league strike came the following weekend, when Chukwueze received a back-heel from team-mate Santi Cazorla and showed composure and technique to fire the ball low into the bottom corner for the winning goal against Real Betis at the Estadio de la Ceramica.The huge moments kept coming, with the teenager completing the 90 minutes in a narrow defeat at Barcelona’s Camp Nou and hitting his first Europa League goal in a 2-0 victory against Spartak Moscow to confirm Villarreal’s progress as group winners to the last 32.All that seemed a long way away when Chukwueze was born on May 22, 1999 in Abia State, Nigeria. He began playing football aged just five and, although his parents originally wanted him to concentrate on his studies, his natural talent and dedication soon shone through.While honing his skills at the famed Diamond Football Academy, Chukwueze came to international attention with his thrilling performances as Nigeria won the 2015 Under-17 World Cup. Three goals in the competition, including a strike after just 25 seconds in a 5-1 win against hosts Chile, secured him the competition’s Bronze Boot prize.After joining Villarreal’s youth system in 2017, he quickly settled and was first promoted to the C team before rising into the B reserve side playing in Spain’s third tier. Having impressed his coaches in training with the senior side, a first-team chance soon arrived and was taken with both hands.A fast, direct winger who likes to cut inside and shoot, Chukwueze has been compared to Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben, while current Nigeria international Ikechukwu Uche, who played for Villarreal between 2011 and 2015, is a close follower of his compatriot’s career.His immediate impact in LaLiga has raised hopes that Chukwueze could emulate another Nigerian, Christopher Ohen. The former Real Madrid youth teamer scored 48 goals in 117 top-flight games for SD Compostela in the 1990s, making him the third-highest African scorer in LaLiga history.Already a senior international with his country, following a debut in a 0-0 draw with Uganda last November, Chukwueze is currently focusing on maintaining his fast start with Villarreal. In what has been a difficult 2018-19 season so far for the Yellow Submarine, their emerging Nigerian prospect is a rising star to keep their spirits high.last_img read more

But it is a work in progress,” Mr. Gray said.Highlighting the importance of the building, he argued that it represents “the local art of us as a people and the birth of the annual Pantomime.”Mr. Gray said the Ward Theatre, donated to the City of Kingston by Colonel C.J. Ward in 1912, is the last of four structures to have been constructed on the same site.He noted that the first one was built in 1770.“The last one before this theatre was built was destroyed by the 1907 earthquake,” he added.The Ward Theatre, which was declared a national monument in January 2000, is among some 300 sites declared as protected heritage by the JNHT.center_img The Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT) is monitoring repairs at the Ward Theatre to ensure that its heritage value is maintained.last_img read more

Death toll in Indonesia ferry sinking rises to 18

first_imgJakarta: The death toll from an Indonesian ferry sinking has risen to 18, authorities said Tuesday, the latest maritime accident to hit the archipelago nation. The overloaded passenger boat was carrying more than 60 people when it overturned Monday in rough seas near Madura island, off Java’s north coast. Indonesia’s search and rescue agency said 18 people had died, including several children, with 39 survivors. A fleet of rescue vessels, a plane and local fishing boats are searching the waters for at least four others still missing, authorities said.

Marine accidents are common in Indonesia, an archipelago nation of more than 17,000 islands, where many use ferries and other boats to travel despite poor safety standards.last_img read more

BC brings in speedlimit technology aimed at cutting crashes based on weather

first_imgCHILLIWACK, B.C. – New technology is being installed to allow for variable speed limits along two of British Columbia’s busiest stretches of highway in an effort to reduce crashes.The B.C. government says installation begins this week for a congestion-based speed limit system on a 24-kilometre section of Highway 1 through Chilliwack and Abbotsford.The area is notorious for a high number of rear-end crashes, and the government says the changes will allow for a lower speed limit to slow down traffic before it reaches a stop-and-go situation.The second system will be installed on Highway 3 between Hope and the junction at Highway 5, where the speed limit along a seven-kilometre stretch will be based on weather.The Transportation Ministry says it expects the variable limits to be operating by next summer, at an estimated cost of $25 million.It says in a news release that other jurisdictions outside of Canada have reported about a 10 per cent reduction in serious collisions in zones that include variable speed limits.last_img read more

Concerned at conditions in Somalia Security Council urges end to violence

Speaking to reporters following a closed-door briefing, Ambassador Marty M. Natalegawa of Indonesia, which holds the rotating Council presidency, said the members “expressed strong concern about the deteriorating political, security and humanitarian situation in Somalia.”He said the members also “underlined the need to continue to actively develop contingency plans for the possible deployment of a UN peacekeeping force as part of enhanced UN integrated strategy in Somalia.”Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in his latest report on Somalia, issued last week, cautioned that deploying a UN peacekeeping operation is not realistic or viable given the country’s security situation, the intensifying insurgency and the lack of progress towards any political reconciliation.He also noted that conditions are so dire that it has not even been possible to send a technical assessment mission to the country.“Given the complex security situation in Somalia, it may be advisable to look at additional security options, including the deployment of a robust multinational force or coalition of the willing,” the report suggested.The Council members today called for all Somali stakeholders “to renounce violence and to engage in an all-inclusive peace process,” the President said, expressing support for the efforts of the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Somalia, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah to promote dialogue, consultation and reconciliation, and for the Transitional Federal Institutions (TFIs) and the African Union Mission (AMISOM) deployed in the country.Council members “recognized the need for greater financial, logistical and technical support” for AMISOM, he added. They also “underlined the need for enhanced international assistance to address the humanitarian situation in Somalia.”Responding to questions from the press, the President said contingency planning involves not only a possible UN peacekeeping force but a UN response to the humanitarian and the political situation in Somalia.He added that Council members were considering an expert-level consultation with UN political, peacekeeping and humanitarian officials.“There is a clear recognition that this an issue that requires continued attention,” he said. “We’ll take this one step at a time, mindful of the urgency of the situation.”Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP) today welcomed the safe arrival of the two ships carrying WFP cargo, the first two ships to be escorted by a French naval vessel assigned to protect them from pirate attacks.The French ship and the two WFP-contracted vessels left the Kenyan port of Mombasa on Friday, carrying more than 3600 tons of food, and arrived in Somalia today.Thanking the French Government and Navy for their assistance, WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran said the operation comes at a critical time for the Somali people, who have been afflicted by drought as well as ongoing conflict. 19 November 2007Security Council members today voiced concern about worsening conditions in Somalia, urging all concerned to work for peace while stressing the need to lay contingency plans for a possible United Nations peacekeeping presence in the country, which has lacked a functioning government since 1991. read more

UN expert slams Sri Lanka

Australian Greens leader Christine Milne accused Prime Minister Julia Gillard of turning a blind eye to the growing reports of human rights abuses in Sri Lanka. Sooka says she’s surprised other commonwealth countries, including Australia, are taking “such a weak line” in saying they will attend the meeting.“I must say I’m surprised by Australia … it’s quite shocking,” she said.The federal government says it disagrees with Canada’s position and will not join a boycott of the event. She praised Canada for saying it would boycott the November CHOGM meeting unless Sri Lanka investigates suspected war crimes.“In the absence of any action by the government of Sri Lanka, they should not be rewarded by being allowed to host CHOGM,” she said. “People continue to be tortured and disappeared,” she told ABC radio on Monday. A UN human rights expert says she’s shocked the Sri Lanka will be allowed to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) this year despite ongoing cases of torture and disappearances.Yasmin Sooka, who was asked by UN chief Ban Ki-moon to investigate allegations of human rights abuses during Sri Lanka’s war, says the country is still perpetrating abuses against its own civilians. “Sri Lanka is quite frankly descending into a state where the rule of law no longer holds sway.” “She’s turning that blind eye because she thinks it’s more important to send asylum seekers back to Sri Lanka than actually address the reason why they’re seeking asylum in the first place,” she told reporters in Melbourne.“Australia should stay home from CHOGM.”Australia has returned more than 1000 failed asylum seekers back to Sri Lanka since August 2012. read more

Over half Kosovos missing accounted for mostly through body identification –UN

“It is of the highest priority to find the missing persons and identify the bodies,” UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) Director of Justice Albert Moskowitz reported. The UN has run the province ever since Western Forces drove out Yugoslav troops in 1999 amid atrocities committed in ethnic fighting. “Up to date, there are around 530 individuals whose remains have not yet been identified. To clarify the fate of the missing is a long and sensitive process and it is of special importance for the families affected. It is also essential to find the missing in order to help stabilize the region,” Mr. Moskowitz added. A total of 5,206 people were reported missing after the conflict. By the end of last month, 2,150 persons (Kosovo Albanians, Kosovo Serbs and other ethnic minorities) where still listed missing, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). From 2002, the UN Office on Missing Persons and Forensics (OMPF) succeeded in reducing the number by over 50 per cent. OMPF was created in 2002 as a division in the UNMIK Department of Justice. Today, the office consists of 55 staff members who work to clarify the fate of the missing persons. As of 1 December, 1,807 missing persons have been pronounced dead and have had their remains returned to their families. In addition, about 100 missing persons have been identified, but the families have chosen not to accept the bodies until other members of their families or communities are found so that they can be buried together. OMPF has developed a Memory Project to create a public record of the experiences of the families of the missing. The first initiative used theatre to explore the painful issues facing the families and was compiled into the publication Voices. The second, an oral histories initiative, video-records interviews with the families to build a historical archive. read more

Correction Ferguson story

Correction: Ferguson story AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Associated Press Posted Nov 28, 2014 12:04 am MDT FERGUSON, Mo. – In a Nov. 29 story and accompanying news guide about protests over the grand jury decision in the Michael Brown case, The Associated Press misidentified the Ferguson street where a Friday night protest happened. It happened on South Florissant Road, not West Florissant Avenue, which is also a street in Ferguson.A corrected version of the story is below:15 arrested at demonstration in Ferguson15 arrested as protests return to Ferguson police department after mall shut-downsBy PHILLIP LUCAS and TOM FOREMAN Jr.Associated PressDemonstrators temporarily shut down three large malls in suburban St. Louis on one of the busiest shopping days of the year and then marched in front of the Ferguson police department to protest a grand jury’s recent decision not to indict the police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown.Several stores lowered their security doors or locked entrances as at least 200 protesters sprawled onto the floor while chanting, “Stop shopping and join the movement,” at the Galleria mall in Richmond Heights a few miles south of Ferguson, Missouri, where Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown, who was unarmed, in August.The action prompted authorities to close the mall for about an hour Friday afternoon, while a similar protest of about 50 people had the same effect at West County Mall in nearby Des Peres. And several dozen demonstrators led to a temporary closure of the Chesterfield Mall.Later Friday night, a group of about 100 protesters marched down South Florissant Road in front of the city’s police and fire departments chanting, blocking traffic and stopping in front of some businesses.“I served my country. I spent four years in the Army, and I feel like that’s not what I served my country for,” said Ebonie Tyse, 26, of St. Louis. “I served my country for justice for everyone. Not because of what colour, what age, what gender or anything,” she said.Fifteen people were arrested, according to Missouri Department of Public Safety spokesman Mike O’Connell. He said charges would include peace disturbance and impeding the flow of traffic, and two people would be charged with resisting arrest and one with assault.Monday night’s announcement that Wilson, who is white, wouldn’t be indicted for fatally shooting Brown, who was black, prompted violent protests that resulted in about a dozen buildings and some cars being burned. Dozens of people were arrested.The rallies have been ongoing but have grown more peaceful this week, as protesters turn their attention to disrupting commerce. Elsewhere on Friday, protests in Chicago, New York, Seattle and northern California — where protesters chained themselves to trains — were among the largest in the country on Black Friday.In Oakland, more than a dozen people were arrested after about 125 protesters wearing T-shirts that read “Black Lives Matter” interrupted train service from Oakland to San Francisco, with some chaining themselves to trains. Dozens of people in Seattle blocked streets, and police said some protesters also apparently chained doors shut at the nearby Pacific Place shopping centre.In Chicago, about 200 people gathered near the city’s popular Magnificent Mile shopping district, where Kristiana Colon, 28, called Friday “a day of awareness and engagement.” She’s a member of the Let Us Breathe Collective, which has been taking supplies such as gas masks to protesters in Ferguson.“We want them to think twice before spending that dollar today,” she said of shoppers. “As long as black lives are put second to materialism, there will be no peace.”Malcolm London, a leader in the Black Youth Project 100, which has been organizing Chicago protests, said the group was also trying to rally support for other issues, such as more transparency from Chicago police.“We are not indicting a man. We are indicting a system,” London told the crowd.Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Friday announced that he will call a special session of the General Assembly to provide funding for public safety efforts related to protests. A news release from his office said that due to the increased presence of the State Highway Patrol and the Missouri National Guard in the region, the state’s financial obligations for emergency duties are on track to exceed what had been appropriated.___Associated Press writers Jim Salter, David A. Lieb and Alan Scher Zagier in St. Louis, Mae Anderson in New York, Sara Burnett in Chicago and Kristin J. Bender in Oakland, California, contributed to this report. read more

Elles Anne Slowey Exits Her Role People on the Move — 2117

first_img Monika Eyers has been named East Coast editor, home design at Better Homes & Gardens. She brings with her more than a decade of experience creating design and decorating content for publications including The Wall Street Journal, Vogue and Condé Nast Living, among others. Jim Norton, chief business officer and president of revenue at Condé Nast, has been elected chairman of the board of the Interactive Advertising Bureau. He succeeds Lauren Wiener, president of buyer platforms at Tremor Video. Slowey was known as a guest on “Project Runway” and “Stylista” — the 2008 reality show that was set at Elle. Here are the rest of this week’s people on the move: It’s reported that she’ll also pursue short-film and brand marketing now that her role at the brand has changed. Steve Kandell, executive editor, features at BuzzFeed News, announced via Twitter that he’s leaving the site. He’s set to join Esquire as site editor later this month.
