Nike promises to investigate ripped shoe that led to Duke star’s injury

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailStreeter Lecka/Getty Images(DURHAM, N.C.) — North Carolina’s blowout of Duke wasn’t the most pressing blowout on the college basketball powerhouse’s mind after Wednesday’s marquee matchup. Instead, it was Zion Williamson’s blown-out Nike high-tops.Williamson, who is projected by many to be the first overall pick in this June’s NBA draft, left Wednesday’s game with a right knee injury after his shoe tore in the opening seconds of the game.He did not return and the Tar Heels went on to an easy victory over the No. 1-ranked Blue Devils, 88-72.“We’re very concerned about Zion,” Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the loss. “It’s a mild knee sprain. We will know about length of time tomorrow. It’s stable. Obviously it has an impact. You lose the National Player of the Year on the first play.”More pressingly on some fans’ minds was how his shoe could tear apart, resulting in the injury. The sole could be seen torn completely off with Williamson’s socked foot hanging outside.Nike apologized and promised an investigation after the game.“We are obviously concerned and want to wish Zion a speedy recovery,” Nike said in a statement. “The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance. While this is an isolated occurrence, we are working to identify the issue.”Duke signed a 12-year deal with Nike to provide shoes and apparel for the basketball program. They are in the fourth year of that deal, according to ESPN.Williamson was able to walk off the court with only a slight limp.“I just thought he’d twisted his ankle or his knee,” Duke’s Tre Jones said after the game. “But when he took his shoes off, I thought maybe something else was going on.”The game was maybe the biggest draw in years. Duke and North Carolina, with 11 NCAA championships between them, already have a decades-long rivalry, but the highlight-reel regular Williamson added even more attention. His teammate, R.J. Barrett, is also expected to be a top three pick in the NBA draft.ESPN reported ahead of the game that the cheapest ticket available in Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina, was $2,500. One ticket sold for over $10,000.Former President Barack Obama, who was at the game, could actually be seen encouraging the star after his injury and tweeted his best wishes following the loss.Zion Williamson seems like an outstanding young man as well as an outstanding basketball player.

Former Foxtons agent launches rental app for sharers

first_imgA proptech company has launched in London offering a rental app for house hunting couples and sharers and an assisted property finder service.Called The Urban Collective, its unusual service is focussed initially on the London rental market but says it will soon expand beyond the capital to other cities and areas of the UK.The company’s founders, who include a couple with a background in Fintech and a former Foxtons lettings agent, say research suggests a third of house hunters who look for property as a group or a couple find the process much more painful than when doing it alone.The Urban Collective decided to create the UrbanCo app for the Apple’s IOS platform. It enables couples or groups to chat, comment and share links, images, videos and viewings feedback – based on the app’s own listings.Unlike traditional portal-style listings, the company says, its properties will be searchable by lifestyle options as well as price and location – such as proximity to gyms or tube stations.Sherpa serviceAnd for the wealthier end of the lettings market who are cash rich but time poor, The Urban Collective has launched a ‘Sherpa’ service.For a fee, wannabe tenants are put in touch with local experts who complete market research, property evaluations and short lists, deal with agents and landlords, organise viewings and support candidates through the tenancy admin and set-up process until they move in.The Urban Collective claims this helps cut down the number of hours of work needed by tenants to find an ideal rental property from 40 hours to 10.The fees paid by tenants to the ‘Sherpas’ will start at £600 for a one to three bedroom property and £900 for a four to five bedroom property.The business is the brainchild of husband and wife team Mayank Mathur and Valerie Vigouroux (pictured, left) who had become fed up with being tenants in London and felt confident there was a “better way”.They are joined by Octavian Pop (pictured, right), a North London lettings agent who has worked for both Foxtons and Greenstones and who met the couple while helping them find property to rent in the capital.The venture is being financed in part by Mayank, who already has a successful launch behind him. He co-founded financial sector asset trading firm uTrade, India’s leading Fintech company, which has already expanded into ten other countries.“The property market has changed in the past two decades – more professionals and business owners are unable to or choosing not to buy, meaning they stay in the rental market longer,” he says.“It’s time that the search experience is overhauled and brought into the 21st century to match the customer service tenants experience elsewhere, and our new app and ‘Sherpa’ service will help to do so.” Greenstones Mayank Mathur Octavian Pop The Urban Collective Valerie Vigouroux Foxtons July 12, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

‘Joke’ motion takes Merton north

first_imgAt Merton’s latest JCR meeting, a motion was passed proposing to affiliate Merton JCR with the Sheffield Students’ Union. Sheffield was allegedly picked at random, because it seemed far away.The motion was proposed after the annual motion to re-affiliate Merton JCR to OUSU. What apparently began as a ‘joke motion’ picked up unexpected momentum and was passed as a serious motion, with the support of several members of the JCR.Hamish Forbes, a Mertonian present at the meeting, told Cherwell, “It started as a joke, mainly just to see what would happen if we tried to affiliate elsewhere. After great arguments in proposition such as Sheffield’s high tree-to-people ratio and being the place The Full Monty is set, the JCR was convinced.”President of Merton JCR, Will Tilston, explained to Cherwell that “two of our third years, who as you can understand, are hilarious, thought it would be a good idea to propose affiliating to Sheffield SU as well. It was intended as a joke, but managed to pick up unexpected momentum, partly because it seemed fairly harmless, and partly, I suspect, because at least one of the proposers was humourously tipsy.“Mertonians had decided that one student union clearly was not enough.”Rhys Clyne, another student at the meeting, told Cherwell that in “a moment of collective absent-mindedness” they accidently affiliated to Sheffield Students’ Union. He added that, “I could not possibly comment on the logic of the JCR in passing this absurd motion, though I see no practical implications beyond some sort of potential crewdate; apparently their SU bar is very impressive.“I suppose we did not want to be pigeon-holed as OUSU-exclusive.”It seems, however, that the practical outcomes of this motion will be limited. Tilston also stated, “In terms of repercussions, I am yet to delve into the issue but it is likely that it is unconstitutional so no further action will be taken. I have now been contacted by the Sheffield Student Union President who was notified of our motion by writers of this very publication – they know that it was all harmless fun, though I suspect the proposers of the motion will try to wangle a night out in Sheffield, hosted by their SU, for their efforts.”Indeed, news of the motion has reached the Sheffield Students’ Union. Christy McMorrow, the president of Sheffield SU, told Cherwell, “while this is clearly an amusing motion, we’re not surprised that Merton College JCR voted to affiliate with us. After all, who wouldn’t want to be part of the Number 1 rated Students’ Union in the country!”“We hope Merton will be in touch, and would encourage any undergraduates there to come and join us as a postgraduate given your clear admiration for the SU.”last_img read more

Indiana Teachers Injured During Active Shooter Training

first_imgIt was supposed to be an active shooter drill, but it went terribly wrong when a few of the teachers got hurt after they were shot with airsoft guns.“Anything you can do to be proactive-to me -can be a deterrent,” says Steve Luce, Indiana Sheriff’s Association.From high tech security systems to practicing safety drills, education officials are working to prepare Indiana schools for anything-even an active shooter which can turn into a life or death situation in seconds.Hoosier schools are not required to have an active shooter plan in place, but most of them do. In some drills, law enforcement officials actually use training weapons like airsoft guns and fire at the teachers.That’s exactly what happened at an elementary school in Monticello, Indiana. The teachers say they were lined up and shot at execution style with an airsoft rifle leaving many of them with welts and cuts.But they say they were never warned that officers would use any type of weapon during the drill and most of them were shot in their backs. Now, the Head of the State Teachers Association wants to make sure something like this never happens again.Many Hoosier parents agree they want their students to be prepared.“I hope they learn what they need to do in the event there is a shooter,” says Beth Collier, parent.But not if it means putting educators in harms way.“Teachers are there. They don’t know this is coming,” says Dan Holub, Indiana State Teachers Association Executive Director. “And all of a sudden they are being asked to turn around and they’re shot at. It’s just craziness.”But the Indiana Teacher’s Association is taking it a step further asking that lawmakers make sure this type of training isn’t used in any district in the state by adding an amendment to a school safety bill.“That would prohibit as part of active shooter training that teachers and other school staff are shot with plastic bullets or whatever,” says Holub.These teachers were supposed to be using something called the “ALICE” method which trains teachers to take a proactive approach to active shooter situations. It’s used at thousands of schools across the country, but shooting teachers with plastic pellets is not typically part of the shooting.Comments0 commentsFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Listen To Elise Testone’s Soulful & Introspective New Album, ‘This Is Love’ [Stream]

first_imgSoulful singer-songwriter and former American Idol finalist Elise Testone recently released her first new album in three years, This Is Love.This Is Love is the perfect combination of soul, rock, attitude and restraint—a distinct fusion of R&B and rock, subtly influenced by funk and hip-hop that best complements her longstanding reputation as a sassy soul siren. Equally as impressive belting James Brown-style over a relentless funk groove as she is gently resting her voice over a tender ballad, Testone’s range of influences and vocal capacity are on full display on This Is Love.The new funk- and R&B-fueled album features a number of notable guest contributors. Co-written with guitarist Adam Fallen (Clay Aiken, Eric Benet) and Brooklyn jazz, hip-hop, and electronica multi-instrumentalist Jesse Fischer, and featuring Daru Jones (Jack White, Pete Rock) on drums, “Flying High” starts the album floating joyously through a jazz-flavored, flute-enhanced classic soul orchestral groove. Other players on the album include teen guitar phenom Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (who co-wrote the album’s closing song, “Tell Me Now”), drummer Robert Sput Searight (Snarky Puppy, Ghost-Note) and experimental bass master MonoNeon (Prince). Guitarist Jordan Peters also co-wrote two songs on the record, played guitar on all the tracks, and served as a featured guest on “Take The Ride”.“I never know what I might do with my voice, and sometimes I’m personally shocked in a positive way when the notes bend unexpectedly,” she says. “I am also so grateful to a have a strong, passionate, talented and soulful group of musicians, who I call friends, available to play on stage with me in any situation.”“Love has come in and out of our lives in many different ways,” says Testone. “Sometimes the love is real and sometimes we are bound together by an unhealthy passion or aggression and become trapped under the illusion that what we have is true, when in fact it is the opposite. This Is Love is an artistic expression of those experiences, starting with ‘Flying High,’ a composition focused on the most important love ― self-love.”Of special note on This Is Love is “Holly”, written to honor the memory of Elise’s best friend and Charleston, SC roommate, who committed suicide in 2015 two years after surviving life-threatening brain surgery.“Holly had a light around her that was like no one I know,” Elise recalls. “She could make anyone smile within the first few seconds of seeing her. We bonded instantly and had a relationship built on honesty and playfulness. We looked out for each other. We were family. Both of us young at heart, we shared a deep passion for music. Holly always dreamed of being a music star but was always a little afraid to perform.”“Two years after her surgery, I moved to New York and she moved to Texas. She was very unhappy and ended up shooting herself in the head, or at least that is the story I was told. I know if I was near her that never would have happened. I felt like I mourned her twice in a way. And in no way did I think I would lose her that soon after I almost already did. This song took me three years to write because it was so important, but also because I had a real tough grieving process and felt stuck. I am so happy with how it turned out. I am so confident that every lyric was the right lyric, and I am so grateful to have had the time with her that I did. Hopefully this song can convey the positive mark she has left on me and the world.”Below, you can listen to This Is Love in its entirety via Soundcloud:Elise Testone – This Is Love – Full AlbumFor more information about Elise Testone, head to her website here.last_img read more

Avoiding Ticks

first_imgIn Georgia, the risk of serious illness from a tick bite is low, but there’s no reason to give them a free meal.Long pants, tall socks and a little common sense will go a long way in helping Georgians avoid ticks this summer, according to Elmer Gray, a public health entomologist with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension. “From Easter on, our most common ticks are active,” Gray said. “Whenever you walk into grass that touches your legs, you need to take precautions or you could come home with ticks. You don’t have to be in the woods to pick them up.”By Easter, Georgia’s lone star tick — the state’s most common tick — has started “questing,” an entomology term for the tick’s search for a blood meal. They crawl up to the top of a tall blade of grass and wait to hitch a ride on unsuspecting hikers or gardeners, or pets and other animals. Then they climb their victim until they find a vulnerable, warm spot and dig in.No matter what part of the body becomes the tick’s dining destination, there’s an almost 100 percent chance that it started its assault on the victim’s legs, Gray said.The best defense against ticks is to stay out of tall grass or brush. Stay on marked trails or sidewalks and avoid overgrown areas.Cut off ticks’ access when walking through the woods or working in overgrown areas by wearing long pants that are tucked into boots or socks and tucking in shirts. This may not be the most comfortable or stylish look, but it will keep ticks at bay, Gray said.He also recommends using insect repellents with DEET to provide an extra layer of protection for casual outdoor activities.Those spending a lot of time in brushy areas or in the woods this summer should invest in a permethrin treatment for their work, hunting or camping pants. These products are available in the camping section of sporting goods and big-box stores.The permethrin based products are only approved for application to clothing and are very effective in repelling all of our most common pests including ticks, chiggers and mosquitoes. Gray urges those using these products to follow the instructions that come on their product’s label. As always, it’s important to check for ticks after working or playing in a tick habitat. The only safe way to remove ticks is to use tweezers or your fingers to grab the tick as close to the skin as possible and carefully pull it out. People should wash the bite site, and their hands, after removing any type of tick.Essential oils or other tick-irritating substances may force the tick to move, but not before the distressed tick expels additional saliva and possibly pathogens into its host’s bloodstream, increasing the chance of tick-borne disease or infection.Ticks carrying lyme disease — the black-legged or deer tick in the eastern United States — are in Georgia, but they are not as common as the other species and the adults are most active in the fall. More common are the American dog ticks that can carry the bacteria that causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Georgia sees about 75 cases of this illness each year. All tick bites can cause welts and itching that can last up to 10 to 14 days, but Gray urges Georgians to visit the doctor if they experience fever or extreme headaches or if they develop a localized rash that’s larger than a dime. Tick-connected headaches or fever will emerge five to seven days after tick contact.“We are very fortunate that we don’t have a lot of disease-carrying ticks in Georgia,” Gray said. “But nothing good comes from letting ticks bite us. We just don’t want ticks on us if we can avoid it … We need to be tick-smart.” One emerging concern surrounding ticks in Georgia is the connection between lone star tick bites and the development of an allergy to mammalian protein, which includes beef and pork. In some instances, the saliva of the lone star tick triggers an immune reaction that leads to an allergy to mammalian meat. It’s not an epidemic, Gray said, but there is a connection between the state’s most common tick and the allergy. That’s just another very good reason to avoid ticks this summer. For more information about how to protect yourself and your family from ticks, visit tinyurl.com/UGAExtensionTickProtection or search “ticks” at www.extension.uga.edu.last_img read more

Remarks of Speaker Shap Smith on the opening of the 2009-10 Legislative Biennium

first_imgJanuary 7, 2009 – Thank you, and what a wonderful day it is today.  I want to begin by thanking my wife, Melissa.  She is a strong, compassionate, intelligent and beautiful woman and I am lucky to be married to her.  I also want to thank my children, Eli and Mia.  I am very lucky to have such wonderful, intelligent and (mostly) well-behaved kids.  To my family – my father and step-mother, my mother and step-father, my brothers and step-sister – thank you for your continued support.I also want to thank my colleagues here today.  I could not be more excited about working with such a smart and capable group of people in this House.  Over the coming months, we will disagree from time to time.  But disagreement is healthy – it allows us to tease out the best course of action and make the best decisions for Vermont.  I thank you in advance for these disagreements and for your hard work to ultimately reach the best decisions for all Vermonters.As we open this session, I want to reflect on an experience I had last year that brought into focus for me why I am here today; I’m sure all of you have had similar experiences that have brought into focus your own reasons for service in this body.Last October, on a beautiful fall day, I went with my daughter to pick up my son from school.  I had a busy day and wanted to get back to prepare dinner and make lunches.  But my kids wanted to go play.  I decided to stop and take a moment.  We went down to the swings and as my kids played on that beautiful October day, I looked out over the same playground that I had played on as a child.  I saw the same ball fields and the same schools that I had grown up with.  And I saw in the background the same Green Mountains that I had hiked in as a kid. I realized then, just how lucky I am to have been able to return and raise my kids in the same vibrant community I grew up in.  I also realized that it was the work of men and women in this same chamber 30 years ago that made this possible.  Their work preserved our working landscape and built our vibrant communities and outstanding school system.Now, just as legislators went to work 30 years ago to build a future for Vermont that allowed me to return and raise my children here, so too do we go to work today to help lay the groundwork for a similarly bright future for our children.Every Vermonter knows the seriousness of our state’s challenges in the coming weeks and months, but we must also look beyond the immediate crisis toward building a stronger, more vibrant state for the future.  Working together, we must all focus our efforts in this building over the coming months on the policies and priorities that will keep Vermonters working, warm and well.It is precisely because we must confront immediate and long-term challenges that we can and must rethink the way we think about our state government and the way we deliver services to Vermonters. Our work must focus the state on providing a helping hand when Vermonters need it most.  Our policies and priorities can and should:Keep Vermonters working by ensuring they have access to ongoing education and training and helping to create growth opportunities for Vermont businesses, particularly small businesses;Keep Vermonters warm by ensuring every Vermonter has access to safe and reliable heat in their homes and by building opportunities to weatherize their homes and businesses; and,Keep Vermonters well by partnering with them and their families to make sure they have access to quality and affordable health care and mental health services.As we confront our immediate budget challenges and as we work to craft policies across the board that keep Vermonters working, warm and well, it is imperative that our state government reaches these goals efficiently and effectively.We are now facing an immediate crisis, which requires an immediate response. This crisis is why today I am calling on this House to craft and pass a $150 million bond-based Economic Recovery package to keep Vermonters working now and in the future.The centerpiece of the proposal is a public works jobs program modeled after one championed by Governor Richard Snelling in 1983.  Together, we can keep Vermonters working and strengthen our state’s public assets for the future.Additionally, I am calling for a major reinvestment in Vermont’s crumbling transportation infrastructure.  Our roads, bridges, rail and public transit system keep the Vermont economy moving and current and future businesses are looking to us to ensure they are well constructed and maintained.While the economy will be the first order of business and at the top of our agenda, there are many other pressing needs this body must confront, from strengthening public safety laws to building a strong energy future and retaining our working landscape. With the talent and creativity I see here in this chamber today, I know that we can work together and accomplish important work for Vermonters both on the economy and on these other issues.Now is the time for decisive action.  Now is the time for this legislature to follow in the footsteps of the legislature 30 years ago, which built a Vermont in which we are all proud to raise our children.Now is the time to get to work, which is why on this opening day of the session, after the election of the Clerks and the adoption of our House rules, I shall direct the Clerk to journalize the appointment
