Quebec court authorizes racial profiling class action against Montreal police

first_imgMONTREAL — A Quebec Superior Court judge has authorized a class action against the City of Montreal on behalf of citizens who allege they were unfairly arrested and racially profiled by the city’s police.Justice Andre Prevost ruled on Aug. 7 that the claimants met the criteria to proceed.The Black Coalition of Quebec filed the class action request on behalf of non-Caucasian citizens who were unjustly stopped, arrested or detained by Montreal police between Aug. 14, 2017 and Jan 11, 2019 and who suffered racial profiling or violations of their rights.The lead plaintiff is Alexandre Lamontagne, a man of Haitian origin who claims that in Aug. 2017 he was standing on the street checking his cell phone when he was questioned by two police officers.  He was arrested and charged with obstructing police work and assault with the intention of resisting arrest, but the charges were later dropped.In his ruling, Prevost said the class action would address a number of questions, including whether city representatives acted in a discriminatory fashion and violated the rights of the plaintiffs.The Black Coalition said in a statement that it believes the lawsuit will reduce instances of abuse and racial profiling by giving black and cultural communities access to justice.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Shannen Doherty And Holly Marie Combs Bring Ice Bucket Challenge To Sea

first_imgIf you happened to be on Instagram or Twitter late Saturday afternoon, you would have witnessed an incredible challenge! Actresses and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society supporters Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs challenged the organization’s founder Captain Paul Watson and select Sea Shepherd crew and staff worldwide to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, currently sweeping social and entertainment media.Video: Captain Paul Watson #ALSIceBucketChallengeThe challenge is to raise awareness of crippling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The rules of the game require that if one does not accept and fulfill the challenge within 24 hours, they must donate $100 to ALS, which goes to find a cure. Sea Shepherd does NOT support animal research, but it DOES support raising awareness about the disease. Therefore, the organization and its founder accepted the challenge!Crew members and staff from Operation GrindStop 2014, Sea Shepherd’s pilot whale defense campaign currently operating in the Faroe Islands; Operation Relentless, Sea Shepherd Australia’s most recent Southern Ocean whale defense campaign; and Operation Infinite Patience, Sea Shepherd’s dolphin defense campaign that is again gearing up for its September 1st start in Taiji, Japan, along with Captain Watson himself and select staff and onshore volunteers in the USA and Australia spent Sunday taking the challenge and uploading their videos to YouTube.Playing along with the game means one must issue a challenge to someone else just as one takes his or her own. With iconic Notre Dame in the background, Captain Watson issued his challenge while standing before Paris’ picturesque Seine River to another dedicated Sea Shepherd supporter, actress and activist Pamela Anderson. Adam Meyerson, Captain of the Brigitte Bardot issued his challenge aboard the Bardot in the Faroes, a Danish protectorate, to Mary, Princess of Denmark. Melissa Sehgal, senior leader on the ground for the Cove Guardian Infinite Patience campaign, issued her challenge to Director of “The Cove,” Louis Psihoyos. Sea Shepherd IT CEO Omar Todd, representing Sea Shepherd Australia’s Antarctic Campaign, issued his challenge to Colin Barnett, Western Australian State Premier. Representing Sea Shepherd USA were Lisa Agabian, Director of Media Relations & Communications; Farrah Smith, Senior Leadership Giving & Development Officer; Dave Hance, Campaign Coordinator and Southern Ocean crew member; and volunteer celebrity Cove Guardian, Sea Shepherd supporter and reality star Simone Reyes, from “Running Russell Simmons” on Oxygen TV. The four issued their challenge from Los Angeles and responsibly chose to use reclaimed water, as Los Angeles is experiencing a drought at present.“Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs are valued supporters of Sea Shepherd and have actively joined our mission to defend ocean wildlife worldwide. As individuals who deeply care about the plight of the planet and all its life in many forms, it’s no surprise they would want to also raise awareness about this devastating disease,” said Sea Shepherd Founder Captain Paul Watson.last_img read more

Trump indicates Fed search down to 5 finalists

first_imgWASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he is likely to make his selection for the next Federal Reserve chairman from five candidates, a group that includes current Chair Janet Yellen.“I would say within those five, you’ll probably get the answer,” he said when asked by a reporter if he is considering other candidates.Before Trump met with reporters in the Rose Garden, a White House official speaking on condition of anonymity said that the five finalists are Yellen, current Fed board member Jerome Powell, National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, former Fed board member Kevin Warsh and Stanford University economist John Taylor.Trump is expected to announce his decision before he leaves Nov. 3 for a trip to Asia.“Honestly, I like them all,” Trump said when asked if he had a favourite. “I do. I have a great respect for all of them. But I will make a decision over the next very short period of time.”The president is scheduled to interview Yellen on Thursday. After that meeting, he will have met and discussed the job with all five candidates.Yellen’s four-year term as chairman ends on Feb. 3. Trump criticized Yellen on the campaign trail last year, saying she was too political and was keeping interest rates low to favour Democrats. But since taking office, Trump has been complimentary, saying he and Yellen both favour low interest rates and that she has done a good job at the central bank.The president met Warsh, who served on the Fed board during the 2008 financial crisis, and Powell, the only Republican currently on the board, late last month. Trump interviewed Taylor, the author of a key rule on monetary policy, last week.Cohn, who spent 26 years at Goldman Sachs before joining the Trump administration this year, had at one time been considered a front-runner for the Fed job. But his prospects appear to have dimmed after he made comments critical of Trump’s response to racially motivated protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August.___AP White House reporter Darlene Superville contributed to this report.last_img read more

UN purchases local produce to feed hungry Afghans and boost farming

18 September 2007In a twin move to feed hungry Afghans and stimulate local production, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced the $1.1 million purchase of 4,000 metric tons of locally grown wheat in the western Herat region as a way of overcoming continuing security problems hampering deliveries from further afield. In a twin move to feed hungry Afghans and stimulate local production, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced the $1.1 million purchase of 4,000 metric tons of locally grown wheat in the western Herat region as a way of overcoming continuing security problems hampering deliveries from further afield. “When WFP can, and when a good harvest allows, it makes good sense to purchase locally grown cereals for our assistance programmes,” the agency’s Asia Regional Director Tony Banbury said. “This wheat purchase will bring food to vulnerable people in Afghanistan who really need our help, and WFP’s payments will help local farmers recover their livelihoods, a critical step for Afghanistan.” The recent break in supply affected over 100,000 people in the western region, including Afghans recently deported from Iran, vulnerable men and women who carry out community work in exchange for food, and those enrolled in vocational and literacy courses under food-for-training schemes. “Extended drought and conflict has had a devastating effect on Afghanistan’s wheat crop in recent years. But this year, we have had a better harvest, and WFP can buy a significant quantity of wheat locally,” WFP Afghanistan Country Director Rick Corsino said. “WFP makes every effort to buy wheat locally or regionally wherever it can do so without disrupting markets.” For the first time, WFP has also purchased 9,000 tons of wheat from Iran, which will be distributed in Badghis and Ghor provinces. “The purchase of wheat from Herat has also been well timed,” Mr. Corsino said. “Insecurity on the southern ring road means we have been unable to move food for well over two months. With seriously depleted stocks, poor and hungry people in the west of the country have been suffering.” Insecurity in many parts of Afghanistan, where WFP aims to provide food to 5.4 million people this year, presents a major obstacle to humanitarian deliveries and continues to threaten projects. Since June 2006, there have been 28 security incidents involving trucks carrying WFP food. The vehicles have been attacked and looted, seven people have died, and an estimated 750 tons of food has been lost. WFP’s current three-year $378 million Afghan operation is at present 64 per cent funded. read more

Regional drought causing alarming overcrowding at Kenyan refugee camp UN

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said: “The overcrowded Dadaab refugee camp in Garissa continues to receive new arrivals at alarming rates. The current number of registered refugees – 353,921 – is four times its capacity. Twenty thousand people have arrived in the last two weeks alone.”The site is the largest refugee camp in the world.Earlier this week OCHA estimated that 10 million people across the Horn of Africa are facing a severe food crisis following a prolonged drought in the region, with some areas of Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia and Uganda, experiencing their worst drought conditions in 60 years. The Kenyan Government has declared the drought situation a national disaster, with malnutrition mortality rates in northern Kenya exceeding emergency thresholds, OCHA reported. 30 June 2011The United Nations humanitarian agency reported today that the numbers of new arrivals of Horn of Africa drought victims at an already overcrowded refugee camp in north-eastern Kenya is growing “at alarming rates.” read more

CanadianAmerican Studies program a window between neighbours

What makes Canada different from the United States?This is a question that students in Brock’s MA in Canadian-American Studies grapple with both in class and on their way there.“We’re so close, but so separated,” says alumna Heidi Madden (MA ’16). “You don’t understand the differences until you have to articulate them. You have to stand in class and explain who you are to someone who thinks they know you.”The program, now in its fifth year, gives students the benefit of international experience with the convenience of having twice the resources. Students take classes at both Brock and the State University of New York Buffalo campus, and have access to libraries, resources and professors at both campuses.The international experience was particularly important to Madden, who now works as an International Exchange Assistant with Goodman School of Business. She is passionate about international education and finds her experience helps her work with international students.“The opportunity to study with American students and professors made the experience so much richer,” says Madden. “You’re not just learning about Americans, but you’re talking to them and hearing their side.”Even the commute to class becomes part of students’ learning.“You’re learning about case studies where people mention how the border was before 9/11 and how it was after, and you are experiencing that every day,” says Bernardo Pontes, who moved to Niagara from Brazil specifically for this program.“You experience how the Canadian and U.S. relationship changed.”The program also gives American students an opportunity to experience and study Canada at Brock. While a number of U.S. universities offer Canadian-American Studies, the Brock-SUNY Buffalo program is one of the few that lets students regularly travel back and forth between the two countries.Paul Coleman is a SUNY Buffalo student researching special education models in Canada, and how these are being adopted by schools in Las Vegas.“Even if things are successful in one country, they don’t always copy over,” he says. “Copying a model and putting it somewhere else isn’t always the key to success.”The interdisciplinary nature of the program encourages students to explore the nuances of the Canadian-American relationship from many different perspectives.“The comparative atmosphere of this program lends itself to a lot of exciting opportunities,” says Madden.For more information on the interdisciplinary, interfaculty and international program, visit the MA in Canadian-American Studies website. read more

Bradley Roby Ohio State see the sun roll to 60

Call it a prophecy. Call it luck. Heck, call it divine intervention. Call it whatever you want, but Ohio State redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby had a dream. And during Saturday’s 63-38 win under the lights in Ohio Stadium against Nebraska, it came true. “I had a dream earlier this week I was gonna get a pick-six. I was telling everybody, this is my game, I’ma get a pick-six,” said Roby, who predicted Wednesday that he would have his first interception of the season against the Cornhuskers. Strange? Perhaps. But soothsaying might run in the family. “My dad texted me this morning and was like, ‘I had a dream you had a pick-six today,’” Roby said wide-eyed with conviction of his vision from the night before. “I’m like, dang, I’ma get it, I had the same dream.” Stuff like that, he said, just happens. “It’s just crazy. I just wanted to make as many plays as I can for my team,” Roby said. That mental disposition certainly seemed to be on display during a game that saw the Horseshoe turn into an “inferno” – even in nippy 52-degree weather. And, at least for a little while, it might have looked like the Buckeyes needed the cornerback to make every play he possibly could. After the Buckeyes’ offense clumsily opened college football’s primetime nightcap with back-to-back, three-and-out drives, Roby seized the game’s momentum – and score – when OSU might’ve needed it the most. The grating noise of a raucous Ohio Stadium in its only night tilt this year had softened. The roar of a record 106,102 people was eerily quiet just six minutes into the contest. First-quarter struggles, however, haven’t been a novel predicament for the Buckeyes this season. In first-year coach Urban Meyer’s inaugural game in Columbus, OSU was outgained 173 to 48 in total yards against a perceived inferior opponent in Miami (Ohio) in the first quarter. Three weeks later, against similar competition, Alabama-Birmingham jumped on the Buckeyes early in the first quarter with a 99 to 42 total yards advantage. While not outgained in the first quarter of its two other home games before Saturday, OSU struggled to stick a dagger in Central Florida and California before escaping with uninspiring victories in both contests. Buckeyes fans had seen this movie before. You know, the one where their team stumbles its bloodied-self past the finish line – the kind of win that leaves more questions than answers. And that was against teams the Buckeyes were supposed to beat. What would happen to them against a Nebraska team of arguably equal talent? After the Cornhuskers’ defense had stifled sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller and Meyer’s offense early, Saturday’s seemed to have the looks of another episode of more of the same. Admittedly, Meyer called the first quarter a “train wreck.” “It was a dark day there for that first quarter,” he said. Then came the fruition of Roby’s dream. Pinned on his own 31-yard line on 3rd-and-10, Nebraska junior quarterback Taylor Martinez saw a chance to mount a drive with junior receiver Quincy Enunwa open near the Buckeyes’ sideline. Unfortunately for Martinez and the Cornhuskers, Roby saw it too – first, apparently, in his sleep and then during the game. “I saw it on film when they lined up in a certain formation, they run certain routes on certain like downs and distance,” he said. “I saw it and I kinda thought about it pre-snap. So, when I saw him run the route I just jumped it.” As quickly as he ripped the ball from its original trajectory, Roby had taken the ball 41 yards into the stadium’s north end zone for the game’s first score. The inferno of a stadium that Meyer had wanted, in part thanks to Roby, seemed to be back. “That was one of the great evenings in Columbus, in Ohio State,” Meyer said. “But I really appreciate that. I never want to let that go without telling the fans that. That was tremendous,” Meyer said. “That was, from the bottom of my heart, I want to make sure everybody knows that.” The Horseshoe arguably rocked with the same drowning noise that it had during former OSU coach Jim Tressel’s years and Roby was making interceptions in his sleep – sort of. But perhaps most of all, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Suwanee, Ga., native had made good of his earlier talk of picking off Martinez. Roby, though, wasn’t finished yet. While his first interception of the season had put the Buckeyes up early, Nebraska had found a way to gash the OSU defense to a 17-14 lead with less than 10 minutes to play in the second quarter. Faced with a similar situation on his own 20-yard line, Martinez and Nebraska took to the air again on third down against a Buckeyes defense that was hurrying the junior to get the ball out of his hands as soon as possible. And, like before, Roby was there to intercept Martinez – this time for an 8-yard return that set up an 18-yard touchdown pass from Miller to sophomore tight end Jeff Heuerman. Up 21 to 17, OSU subsequently outscored the Cornhuskers, 42-21, en route to its second consecutive Big Ten win and sixth overall victory. Perhaps most impressive Saturday was the 63 points the Buckeyes’ offense amassed against a defense giving up an average of just 20.6 points a game. Six of those points, though, belonged to Roby. “It’s a team thing,” Roby said with a wide smile. “I mean, Ohio State had 63 points. That’s all that matters to me.” Helping put his offense into position to succeed is something he said he’s more than happy to do. “Like I said, I try to do as much as I can in any way that I can to help my team. I want us to win every game so, I felt like, I play good and I make plays then we’re gonna win,” Roby said. While Roby’s interceptions were the first for him this year, Miller said the cornerback is used to making plays. “Man, he does it all the time in practice. But finally he brung it to the field and big plays like that, you gotta score after that,” he said. “So he brings a lot of excitement to the offense.” It might be the kind of excitement that has Roby using his newfound calling as an oracle to predict an undefeated season for the Buckeyes. “We’re trying to go 12-0. Win every single game,” he said. “We’re trying to get that AP No. 1, and go and win a national championship. That’s our goal.” Roby said the climb for such a feat is just like Meyer described as “pushing a ball up a hill.” “You’re pushing the ball up the hill, you’re pushing the ball up the hill. At first you can’t really see much. It’s cloudy, you can’t really see. But you break through it and you see the sun,” Roby said, “and you’re almost there, almost there, keep pushing, keep pushing. I feel like … that was a component tonight. “We saw it, we saw the sun. And we just kept pushing and now we’re going downhill. There’s nothing stopping us.” read more

Opinion Storylines to watch as Ohio State kicks off spring practice

OSU redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones (12) carries the ball as Michigan junior defensive back Blake Countess (2) and sophomore safety Delano Hill (44) defend during a Nov. 29 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-28.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe Ohio State football team isn’t even two months removed from its victory over Oregon in the College Football Playoff National Championship, but it’s already time to hit the field once again.The Buckeyes are scheduled to begin practice Tuesday morning, kicking off a string of 14 sessions, set to conclude with the Spring Game at Ohio Stadium on April 18.Spring practice brings the first glimpse at a new Buckeye squad, including a few freshmen who have enrolled early, some players rehabbing injuries, and others battling for playing time in 2015. With a few guarantees mixed in with a number of question marks, these are the top storylines heading into practice.QuarterbacksIt’s the most talked-about position in all of football, and easily the most discussed when it comes to OSU.Redshirt-junior Cardale Jones is expected to be the only fully healthy signal caller at spring practice who could earn significant playing time next season. Redshirt-sophomore J.T. Barrett is still recovering from a fractured ankle and redshirt-senior Braxton Miller is rehabbing a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.While Barrett was the starter most of last season, and Miller is a former two-year undisputed starter, Jones has a chance to get a leg up on the competition if he performs well this spring.Of course, he had that same chance last year when Miller was initially ruled out after a minor shoulder surgery. Jones earned the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, but was eventually beaten out by Barrett in fall camp before Miller went down with his season-ending injury.So Jones can make his mark while getting plenty of reps in practice, but he should still be wary whenever Barrett and Miller return to full strength, because all three are supremely talented.Position battlesWhile the Buckeyes don’t have to replace anyone at quarterback, it’ll be the most watched position battle.Beyond that, though, OSU has to find a new right tackle, at least one new starting wide receiver, a new starting defensive tackle, one more linebacker and another cornerback.Linebacker is probably the position most set in stone already, with sophomore Raekwon McMillan looking like a clear replacement for the departed Curtis Grant. At receiver, redshirt-freshman Johnnie Dixon might have an opportunity to take over one of the spots left vacant by Devin Smith and Evan Spencer, but he’ll face stiff competition.Other returning names, such as redshirt-seniors Corey Smith and Jeff Greene, should have a chance to earn playing time alongside redshirt-junior Michael Thomas as well.At cornerback, sophomore Damon Webb and redshirt-sophomore Gareon Conley will be going head-to-head, while sophomore Sam Hubbard, redshirt-sophomore Michael Hill and sophomore Jalyn Holmes, along with senior Tommy Schutt, will all get looks at defensive line.Along the offensive front, numerous players could earn playing time, but redshirt-senior Chase Farris is the most likely candidate to replace Darryl Baldwin.Fresh faces on the coaching staffAlong with a few new players, the Buckeyes have two new assistant coaches in the fold.With Tom Herman off to Houston and Stan Drayton off to the Chicago Bears in the NFL, Tim Beck and Tony Alford will be working with the OSU quarterbacks and running backs, respectively.Beck earned the opportunity to choose between three potential Heisman Trophy candidates, while Alford inherited one clear-cut Heisman front runner in junior Ezekiel Elliott.While both the quarterbacks and running backs performed extremely well last season, Beck and Alford have a chance to improve their position groups to a completely dominating level, and leave their mark on the OSU program.After the Spring Game, the Buckeyes are scheduled to return to the field on Sept. 7 against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., to kick off the 2015 regular season. read more

Give our Glorious Glosters the burial they deserve MoD asks families to

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. Nicola Nash, from the MoD’s Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre, said: “We are currently attempting to gather the contact information of the families of these brave men who were killed during the Korean War but have no known grave”. Any British personnel identified will be buried in the United Nations (UN) Memorial Cemetery in Pusan, South Korea. The MoD has said it will pay for relatives to attend the services. Relatives wishing to contact the Ministry of Defence unit responsible for this work should call 01452 854622 or 01462 855258. Returning to his hotel from a visit to the Imjin River battlefield on his last visit, he said he had been overcome with emotion. A young Korean nurse had gone to his aid. Having ensured he was healthy she then knelt down in from of him and, as if she was addressing all the men that had gone to fight for her country, in broken English said three words that have stayed with Mr Mercer ever since: “You my hero”. With human waves of Chinese infantry attacking his isolated hill-top position and many of his small band of British defenders becoming casualties, Brigadier Tom Brodie, commander of the Gloucestershire Regiment, was asked for an update by his American superior.“Things are getting a bit sticky,” he reportedly told General Robert Soule, at the height of the Battle of Imjin River in April 1951, during the Korean war. Taking the phrase at face value, and misunderstanding that to a British soldier it indicated absolute crisis and imminent doom, the General sent neither reinforcements nor an order to withdraw. Having held out against an estimated 10,000 Chinese troops for three days, most of the unit of 600 men were killed or captured, with only 40 making it back to safety.But now relatives of men from The Glorious Glosters, as the unit became known, have been asked to help identify remains from the conflict in a new appeal by the Ministry of Defence.Families of the fallen servicemen have been asked to provide DNA samples after a deal struck in June between President Trump and North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, saw the repatriation of a number of remains. So far the remains of 55 soldiers have been returned to the US for analysis, with more hoped to follow. But the nationalities have yet to be identified and with 33,000 coalition troops still unaccounted for from the war the MoD has appealed for help to trace fallen British servicemen.   Sam Mercer MBE, 88, a veteran of the Korea War.

Mr Mercer served in the Gloucestershire Regiment at the Battle of Imjin River in 1951.  Credit:Heathcliff O’Malley “Although the process of tracing families, DNA testing and identification will probably take many years, we are hoping that as many families as possible will come forward,” Ms Nash said.The Korean War, technically a UN policing action, lasted from 1950 to 1953. An American-led UN coalition supported South Korea in the fight against the Communist North, which was backed by China. 1,108 British troops were killed in the war, with 336 still listed as missing. Sam Mercer, a private in the Gloucestershire Regiment at the time of the battle who was wounded and subsequently taken captive, said he supported the initiative.Speaking exclusively to The Telegraph he recalled that many of his fellow soldiers had been reservists at the time of the Korean War and had had to be recalled to arms to go and fight. “In the words of the RSM [Regimental Sergeant Major],”  Mr Mercer said, “they were ticking like alarm clocks!”He last visited the UN cemetery in Pusan about four years ago and visited the grave of his old Platoon Commander, Lieutenant Curtis, a Victoria Cross recipient.“I had a brief chat with him and wished him well,” he said, “as you do”.He felt it was a worthy endeavour to try to match remains from the war to help the families. He knew that the sacrifices of his comrades were greatly respected by the Korean people today, many of whom, he said, felt the UN forces had been their saviours. read more

GTA hack reveals Google Glass true gaming potential

first_imgIf you could take the HUD from your favorite game and move it to just inside your peripheral vision on Google Glass, would you do it?Google has been spending a lot of time recently working on explaining how Glass could be useful to the average user. Sure, you can check your email and social networks, and you’ve got an OK camera at eye level that could be capable of taking a photo faster than you could pull your phone out of your pocket, but for many that’s not enough. We know that native Glassware apps are on the way, which will help a great deal with these explanations of value. It seems likely that the biggest untapped market for Glass is to behave as a second screen for the things going on when watching TV or playing games. One Glass developer took matters into his own hands — he fired up a copy of Grand Theft Auto 3, and decided to try something new with his wearable tech.Mike DiGiovanni is no stranger to writing native apps for Glass. Mike is the developer who first figured out how to let Glass users take a photo with a blink, and has been working hard on other apps ever since. This latest concept pulls the map from GTA 3 and places it on Glass as a head-up display. It’s not ready for GTA V just yet, but the concept is incredibly cool.Right now the app keeps the display on the whole time you play, so Glass’ battery life becomes a concern. DiGiovanni explained that if the app were to behave more like the current GPS system, where it wakes the display when something important happens, battery life would be significantly longer.So, how about it? Would you slide Glass on when sitting down to a gaming session? If you could use Glass as the motion tracker in Halo, or even as just the ammo counter in your FPS of choice, it’d be a whole new level of interaction for most users.last_img read more

Lisbon boss wonders if Messi will be as good as Ronaldo

first_imgSporting Lisbon manager Jorge Jesus has joined in praising Cristiano Ronaldo for his spectacular goal against Juventus in the Champions League and wonders if a 33 year-old Lionel Messi could achieve similar featsSpeaking before their first leg against Aletico Madrid in the Europa League, the Sporting coach heaped praise on his compatriot and believes that the goal that Ronaldo scored against Juventus was something that no even Messi could achieve.“With all due respect for the player, Messi is Messi. There are two aliens and one is in Madrid I will say that Cristiano’s goal to Juventus is from an extraterrestrial. We are talking about a 33-year-old player. What impressed me most was not the technical gesture, but the ability to jump that has to do with physical condition. ” said Jesus, according to Mundo Deportivo.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The Portuguese coach believes that there is not another player in the world that can match Ronaldo’s level at 33 years of age and questioned if Messi could potentially prove him wrong.“I doubt there are other players that age who have physical ability. Not everyone can do that. I know how Christian trains. It is a demonstration of the form that it has, of the great professional that it is. It is at a very high level. The question is: when Messi is 33 years old will he have that level that Cristiano now has? ”Sporting lost 2-0 to Atletico in the first leg of their quarter-final clash at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano with two defensive errors proving to be very costly for Jesus’ side.last_img read more

The site also includes calendars with family activities, organized meet-ups and awards prizes to frequent users. Click here.The original Vancouver Kids Swap and Sale Facebook page was so popular that some members started separate pages for adult clothing and home goods. Check those out on Facebook by clicking here and “Vancouver Area Home Swap and Sale.”Any mother of young children knows nap time is when you can finally get something accomplished. For most, a load of laundry, a sink full of dishes or dinner prep is sufficient.For Erica Cyr, however, one little nap time chore managed to turn into something that now helps connect hundreds of Clark County mothers.Cyr had shopped consignment stores and Craigslist at different times when hunting for clothes, toys and gear for her son, Tristan. But she was most drawn to an online group through Facebook that helped moms unload unwanted items and purchase others. The group was focused out of Portland, though, and many of the users were even farther from Vancouver, in Oregon suburbs such as Beaverton and Hillsboro.So, one day in late March she created a Facebook group page exclusively for Clark County moms called Vancouver Kids Swap and Sale and invited a few of her own friends to join.last_img read more
