first_imgAPTN National NewsWhile thousands are expected to converge on Ottawa Friday as the Idle No More movement turns into a national day of action one woman in Egypt plans to make it go international.Patricia Stein, a Lakota from North Dakota, has been living in Cairo, Egypt since 2010 teaching English and art to young children and intends to demonstrate outside of the Canadian embassy.“I can’t stay there for long since the Canadian embassy is right beside the Syrian one (high security presence). But doing what I can,” she said to APTN National News via Twitter.She also has to do it before nightfall because people take to the streets on Fridays and it can be unsafe she said. With a seven hour time difference of Ottawa she will be the first to start the day of action. She intends to begin at 3 p.m., Egypt time, which would be 8 a.m. in Ottawa.Stein, 21, has been active on the Idle No More movement through social media sites like Twitter. In fact, a map showing where all the tweets with the hashtag #idlenomore have been used indicates Stein isn’t alone in Egypt.A few have popped up outside of where she lives but she only expects one other person to join her Friday.She wants to post two signs on the wall of the embassy, including a painting she did of an Indigenous dancer with “Idle No More” painted over it in thick black letters.She’ll be joined, however, in London, England by a group of demonstrators, as well as a couple in the United States, but it’s here in Canada where most of the rallies are planned with Ottawa expected to be the largest.They’re protesting federal government legislation they say will affect treaties and their lands.It’s a grassroots movement sparked by four women in Saskatchewan that has grown to be a strong national movement. Today, more than a thousand people shutdown a portion of Hwy. 401 near London, Ont.Busloads of people are expected to arrive in Ottawa from different parts of the country with the rally beginning at noon.A list of speakers has been confirmed for the demonstration, including Attawapiskat First Nation Chief Theresa Spence who entered her ninth day of a hunger strike Wednesday or a spokesperson. She is demanding a meeting between Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Governor General David Johnston and First Nations leaders. She wants treaty rights to be respected.Other scheduled speakers include Assembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn Atleo, Liberal MP Carolyn Bennett, NDP MP Charlie Angus and about a dozen others. As of Wednesday a representative from the Conservative party hadn’t been confirmed.last_img read more

At the Warzycha dinner table, soccer is rarely discussed. Still, the sport remains a way of life for the family of five. Ohio State midfielder Konrad Warzycha didn’t start playing organized soccer until he was 8 years old, but it is no surprise that the game came naturally to him. His father, Robert, played professionally for 18 seasons, overseas and later for the Columbus Crew, where he currently serves as the team’s head coach. “Everything that I know and how I play is based on how he’s taught me,” Konrad said about his father. “From an early age, he’s always helped out as a coach on my club teams and always given me advice, and I always look to him for advice.” Konrad was born in Poland and lived in both England and Hungary by the time he was 8 years old. It was not until Robert joined the Crew for the team’s inaugural season in 1996 that Konrad began playing organized soccer in a recreational league in Dublin, Ohio. “In England there really wasn’t a team for younger kids and in Hungary I went to an all-Polish school and didn’t know many people who played,” Konrad said. “My parents didn’t really know how to go about signing me up for a league.” Konrad picked up the game quickly and joined a club team, Blast Futbol Club, in 1998. At Dublin Jerome High School, Konrad was twice named team MVP, and was a first-team All-Ohio selection as a senior in 2006. Konrad is the oldest of Robert and Eliza Warzycha’s three children, but his younger siblings have also found success on the soccer field. His brother, Bartosz, 20, played a collegiate season at Marshall University, while his sister, Olivia, 18, was a 2009 All-Ohio selection her senior year at Dublin Jerome. Despite his family’s ties to the game, Konrad insists that soccer is not what defines his family and that the game is rarely discussed in the Warzycha household. “Sure, it’s something that we have in common, but we don’t really talk about it much at home. We just talk about regular family stuff,” Konrad said. OSU men’s soccer coach John Bluem had been a friend of Robert’s even before Konrad came to OSU and said he sees similarities in the father and son’s style of play. “His father was known for his powerful right-footed shot, and Konrad has that same kind of strength and power in his right-footed shot,” Bluem said. Konrad’s senior season at OSU has gotten off to a fast start, as he leads the team in both goals and total points, with four and eight, respectively. He is 47th on TopDrawerSoccer.com’s rankings of the top collegiate players in the nation. “He’s off to a very good start,” Bluem said. “He’s a very physically dominating player, with great size, strength and speed. He’s great on the ball and a very good passer. Also, he has the ability to score goals,” Bluem said. “I think he has some more goals in him.” The Buckeyes (5-2-1) opened conference play with a 1-0 win over Michigan, a trend Konrad hopes will continue as Big Ten play wears on. “Our goal is to win the Big Ten regular-season title and then make it to at least the third round of the NCAA championships,” Konrad said. “Last year we got a high seed and then didn’t really show up for our first game.” Bluem said accomplishing those goals will have a lot to do with Konrad’s play on the field. “We hope he just continues to play well for us and do the things that he does best,” he said. “He’s a heck of a player, and I think he has a future in soccer after college.” If it were up to Konrad, that future would happen in America, as opposed to returning overseas. “I definitely want to see if I can play here first because we’ve been here for so long,” he said. “This is where my family is.” read more

Freshman forward Nichelle Prince (7) looks for a shot during a match against Indiana Sept. 26 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Ryan Robey / For The LanternAfter tallying just two goals in its last two games, the Ohio State women’s soccer team netted two goals in the first 18 minutes en route to a 3-1 win over Indiana.The Hoosiers surrendered all three scores before halftime Thursday, allowing one more goal than they had in all of their previous matches of the season combined.“It says a lot about how hard our forwards have worked to get to that point,” Buckeye junior forward Kayla Varner said. “We’ve been working hard, going into practice early, getting shots off. It felt rewarding, I was happy about it.”Varner opened the scoring for the Buckeyes in the fourth minute, scoring on a cross from senior midfielder Danica Wu.“Danica had an awesome cross, and I just happened to be there and finish it,” Varner said.Wu would also be in on OSU’s second goal, getting a ball through to sophomore forward Michela Paradiso, who found the back of the net in the 18th minute to give the Buckeyes the 2-0 advantage.“I’m proud of the way that we got in, and the variety that we are creating in our attack,” coach Lori Walker said. “I thought that worked out pretty well for us.”With just five minutes left in the half, the Buckeyes struck again. Freshman defender Taylor Schissler found fellow freshman midfielder Alexis Degler on a long ball, finishing from short range to put the Buckeyes up 3-0.“In the first half, we played really solid. We only had five shots and scored three goals, so we were efficient in what we did,” Walker said.Degler’s goal marked the second time this season three different Buckeyes scored in a single game.“The most important thing is that we had three different people getting on the board tonight. I think it’s good after losing (graduated forward) Tiffany Cameron … she carried a lot of our goals last year,” senior goalkeeper Rachel Middleman said. “It’s awesome that we got some people up on the board tonight.”Indiana would not get on the board until the 66th minute, getting a scoring strike from junior midfielder Abby Smith to get the previously unbeaten Hoosiers on the board. Ohio State outshot the Hoosiers 7-6 in the second half, but the Buckeyes were not happy with their performance.“I’m proud of us that we won, I’m proud of us in the first half, but the second half does not represent the kind of soccer that we want to play,” Walker said.The Buckeyes (7-1-2) are scheduled to host Purdue Sunday at the Bert L. & Iris S. Wolstein Field at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at 1 p.m. read more

Junior wide receiver Devin Smith (9) dives into the end zone during The Game Nov. 30 at Michigan Stadium. OSU won, 42-41.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorUrban Meyer has won every game since taking the reigns at Ohio State, but it was one game in particular that stood out.The team has ripped off 24 straight victories since Meyer took over, including 16 in the Big Ten but it wasn’t until OSU’s first conference victory under Meyer that his presence seemed to be truly felt.That win came Sept. 29, 2012, when the Buckeyes traveled to East Lansing, Mich., and beat Michigan State 17-16.It was a game Meyer and his players mention often, the crossroads of what has now become the nation’s longest winning streak.“Last year, it was a big turning point for us,” OSU junior wide receiver Devin Smith said Monday. “I felt like after that game, the team started to get a little closer, the leadership started to grow and got a lot stronger and led the team to keep winning ball games and be 12-0.”The Buckeyes used the momentum gained from earning their first big win on the road to run the table in 2012, never really facing a challenge for much of the rest of the season.Saturday, OSU and the Spartans meet again — this time with the 2013 Big Ten Championship on the line and for the Buckeyes, a likely berth in the BCS National Title game.A 2012 NCAA-imposed postseason bowl ban kept the Buckeyes home last December, but now with it all back in play, it’s the Spartans who once again stand in their way of getting to their ultimate goal.Redshirt-senior Corey Linsley said it “absolutely” is ironic that the same team OSU beat to turn their 2012 season in the right direction now could keep it from getting a chance to play for the crystal ball.“We were just talking about (that) in the weight room the other day. Everything changed last year for us (after beating the Spartans),” Linsley said Monday. “And now everything’s on the line for us … I’m sure they want to get us. They feel like they maybe should have won that game.”Against the Spartans last season, OSU took the lead late in the third quarter when then-sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller connected with then-sophomore Smith on a 63-yard strike that proved to be the game winner. It was Miller’s only touchdown of the game, but helped catapult his team to victory and on to an undefeated season.Meyer said he’s studied and learned a lot from that game, but this year’s Buckeye team is better than it was a year ago.“I learned quite a bit,” Meyer said Monday. “They were very good (last season). We were not very good. I’m not taking anything away from Michigan State because they are excellent. But we’re a much better offense than we were a year ago, but that was a street fight last year.”Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said during Sunday’s Big Ten teleconference there was one big thing that stuck out about last year’s loss at home to OSU.“I’d say missed opportunities,” Dantonio said. “We hit a trick play down I think to the 5-yard line but were misaligned, which resulted in a penalty. Came back the next play, hit a deep crosser and dropped the ball. We get a fumble recovered where we scooped it and scored. They blew the whistle or something and it didn’t count, so we ended up driving partly down the field and having to settle for a field goal rather than a touchdown. So opportunities like that, we had the lead briefly in the fourth quarter, I believe, or third quarter, I believe, and they hit a deep one to Devin Smith.”The intensity and magnitude of the game with the Spartans coupled with the chance to play for the BCS title caused Linsley and a few of his teammates on the offensive line do something they aren’t used to once they got back from Ann Arbor Saturday night: take a dip in the cold tubs.“I don’t think I’ve ever done that before after a game,” Norwell said. “The level of focus that that gave us, it was a moment of intensity there for a second, but now it’s a level of focus that our dream is here. The chase is real.”The journey Meyer has taken OSU on since he came to Columbus seems to have come full circle — all the way from the turning point in the form of last season’s win against Michigan State, to now.“That’s one of the interesting things about college football. Everything I guess just kind of comes back,” sophomore linebacker Joshua Perry said Monday. “That was a big game for us last year, and that was a dog fight and I expect it’s going to be a dog fight this weekend too. It’s going to be a big game. They’ve really got a good defense and their offense has been hitting their stride lately so Buckeyes gotta play Buckeyes football.”OSU looks to fulfill a goal of capturing a Big Ten Championship when it takes on the Spartans Saturday, scheduled for a 8:17 p.m. kickoff at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. read more

OSU football coach Urban Meyer addresses the media at the 2014 Big Ten Media Days July 28 in Chicago. Meyer was involved with one of 22 self-reported NCAA violations by OSU in the first half of 2014.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorOhio State coach Urban Meyer spoke on the weekly Big Ten teleconference Tuesday afternoon and discussed the Buckeyes’ upcoming matchup with Rutgers as well as select players who have made an impact on the 2014 season.Meyer said senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett has an “incredible future.” He added that Bennett could fall anywhere from a first round pick to a late round pick in the 2015 NFL draft depending on his performance.Meyer’s first comment about Rutgers was how impressed he is with its punt block team. He said he believes the Scarlet Knights are very aggressive and said they are one play from being undefeated.Meyer said Rutgers senior quarterback Gary Nova had “the day of days” in his last game against Michigan. Meyer added the Buckeyes began preparing for Nova and the Scarlet Knights during the bye week.He said sophomore defensive end Joey Bosa is a two-dimensional player in that he is skilled at pass rush and stopping the run. Meyer added that most players at that position are one dimensional.The coach said his offense has “seen almost every defense you could imagine,” and added that the offense will not get caught again like it did against Virginia Tech.Meyer said that while each offensive lineman has improved, redshirt-senior Darryl Baldwin stands out for his big improvements.He said that although the line has improved, it is still “concern No. 1,” moving forward.The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Scarlet Knights on Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. read more

OSU cheerleaders lead OSU football players out of the field at Ohio Stadium prior to the annual Spring Game on April 18. Team Gray defeated Team Scarlet, 17-14. Credit: Muyao Shen / Lantern photographer With an unprecedented crowd on hand, the 2015 Ohio State football team got its first taste of live action.In front of an announced national Spring Game record crowd of 99,391, the Buckeyes held their annual intrasquad Spring Game at Ohio Stadium. The matchup — played between the Scarlet and Gray teams — was a back-and-forth affair, with Gray holding on for a 17-14 win.“Unbelievable,” senior defensive lineman Tommy Schutt said about the record crowd. “Obviously, we were expecting a really big crowd, but 100,000 is just, wow, Buckeye nation’s unbelievable, and having that many at the Spring Game is unbelievable.”Each of the two starting quarterbacks — redshirt-junior Cardale Jones of the Gray team and redshirt-freshman Stephen Collier of the Scarlet side — labored through the first half, which saw Gray hold a 10-7 lead.Jones went into the break completing 15 of 33 passes for 224 yards. Of those, 108 were pulled in by redshirt-senior wide receiver Corey Smith, who also scored Scarlet’s only first-half touchdown on a 58-yard reception.Collier, on the other hand, could not find any rhythm until the end of the half, when he found redshirt-freshman wide receiver Terry McLaurin for a 35-yard score with no time left on the clock.Collier, a product of Leesburg, Ga., ended the half just 7-of-19 for 81 yards. He was also responsible for four first-half turnovers, including a trio of interceptions and a lost fumble.Scarlet made a comeback in the third quarter, scoring its second unanswered touchdown to take a 14-10 lead after three periods.Collier led a 14-play, 55-yard drive that ended with a three-yard pass to redshirt-freshman wide receiver Parris Campbell as the quarter expired.However, Jones, last season’s national championship-winning quarterback, engineered a 55-yard, 50-second drive to put Gray back in front.Gray got the ball after a Scarlet turnover on downs, and needed just two passes to Smith — the latter of which was a 37-yard touchdown — to put his side up three.Smith finished the game with six receptions for 174 yards and each of Gray’s two touchdowns.Offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Ed Warinner said he believes Smith has the potential to play at that level on a regular basis, but he has work to do.“Consistency is his issue. He has some talent, and he shows it. Today he showed his talent. His deal, to be someone we talk about consistently, is to be consistent,” Warinner said. “When he does show up and looks locked in, he’s really good.”Collier had one final opportunity to go back in front, but a 25-yard pass to the end zone intended for redshirt-senior wide receiver Jeff Greene missed the mark as time expired, sealing the Gray victory.OSU coach Urban Meyer said while he sees several individual players who have taken steps forward since last season, the team still has a long way to go.“We did not improve as a team,” Meyer said. “That was not a good team out there.“That’s going to be interesting to watch for the Buckeyes this summer and how they handle themselves, how they behave, how they train and how they come together as a team, because that team has got to be better by the time (strength and conditioning) coach (Mickey Marotti) hands me the team like he does every summer.”Jones attempted 42 passes on the afternoon, completing 19 of them for 304 yards. He also threw two interceptions in the contest.Jones said the in-game experience did not feel like much, but he got a lot out of making his first-ever start at Ohio Stadium.“I felt like another practice, because that’s what we did almost every day in practice, as far as spring ball,” Jones said. “So, I mean, I think it was pretty much the atmosphere (that was the most important experience).”The Buckeyes are scheduled to open the 2015 regular season on the road against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. read more

Malik Hooker talks to the media at Ohio State’s Pro Day on March 23, 2017 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Credit: Screenshot Courtesy of Colin Hass-Hill | Assistant Sports DirectorAll 32 NFL teams were on hand at Ohio State’s Pro Day on Thursday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center to watch the best athletes coach Urban Meyer’s program has to offer in the 2017 draft class.But the best athlete wasn’t even competing.Former OSU safety Malik Hooker was in the crowd of 122 NFL representatives that included seven general managers and nine head coaches. Dressed in a Michael Jordan “23” sweatshirt, Jordan brand shorts and shoes, the potential top-10 pick was talking with the NFL elites as he continues his recovery from his sports hernia and torn labrum surgeries in January.Because of his injuries, Hooker isn’t able to showcase his skills that he displayed in the 2016 season, when he broke a school record with three interceptions returned for touchdowns and recorded a total seven interceptions. Lucky enough for Hooker, his work on the gridiron doesn’t need to be supported by gaudy measurables at combines or pro days to earn consideration as a top pick.But that hasn’t stopped him from wishing he was performing for the teams who are interested in him.“Just being anxious to get back out there and show everybody that, like I said about Marshon (Lattimore), I am who I am on film,” Hooker said. “Ain’t no secrets about it. (I) feel like that’s just more so just wanting to compete again. I haven’t ran since the Clemson game in January, so just trying to get back in the mix of things.”Hooker said he has heard from nearly every NFL team, mostly discussing his injury, recovery and expected return time. For now, he said he’s ahead of schedule.The All-American safety said he has started to run in the pool and is roughly eight weeks away from being back to full-time football activities. He also posted a video on Twitter last week of him catching a ball while side-shuffling on a treadmill.pic.twitter.com/kPfDL9IGf5— Malik Hooker (@MalikHooker24) March 17, 2017“It’s more so just taking it step by step,” Hooker said. “I have to get my legs back under me and condition and stuff like that. It’s more so my body type of thing, waiting until my body feels like it’s ready to get back out there and compete.”As the process continues until the NFL draft on April 27, Hooker said his patience is being tested. Not being able to go in the NFL Combine, not participating in his pro day and having to watch his teammates perform in the pro day makes it that much more difficult for a competitor like Hooker to remain patient in his rehabilitation process.But he has found one thing to do in his spare time: sign a contract with the Jordan brand.Hooker told reporters that he signed with the brand last week, which is why he was dressed in apparel designed with the image of the NBA legend.“It’s definitely a great thing,” he said. “They don’t sign too many people. For me to be in that position to say that I signed with Jordan is definitely a blessing and a shocking thing for me.”Former Buckeye cornerback Marshon Lattimore has recently climbed draft boards, projected as high as No. 3 to the Chicago Bears by NFL.com’s Charley Casserly. If Hooker was able to run in the 40-yard dash, or perform in any of the drills, his stock might have risen as well.However, Hooker is still projected as a high first-round pick, likely in the top 10, and he said that worrying about his draft stock or where he will be selected takes away from the experience of preparing for the NFL.“There’s a lot of great DBs in this group for sure,” he said. “So for me to be rated as a top DB is definitely an unbelievable thing and a blessing.” read more

J.T. Barrett looks up into the Buckeye crowd following Ohio State’s 27-21 win over Wisconsin in the B1G championship on Dec. 2. in Lucas Oil stadium. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorDALLAS — J.T. Barrett wants to make one thing clear: he doesn’t care about the past or future. The only thing that remains ever-present in his mind is just that — the present.Even with Friday night’s Cotton Bowl against USC being the only game between Barrett and the end of his collegiate career, he said he does not reflect on the past and think about, for example, the final Wednesday practice or the final team meal of his collegiate career as he goes through a week filled with many ‘lasts.’“I don’t really think about it. I don’t know. I think I’m just a different guy, I guess,” Barrett said. “I’ve been thinking about other things like, I don’t know, things I’m going to eat next or, like, when is the next nap I’m going to take. Those are things that come across my mind.”He has seemingly experienced nearly everything a college football player could during his five seasons at Ohio State. The fifth-year senior quarterback filled in unexpectedly for an injured star signal-caller as a redshirt freshman, suffered a season-ending injury late in the season, watched his team win a national championship, then found himself embroiled in a quarterback battle the next season. Barrett won the Fiesta Bowl, was shut out in the first round of the College Football Playoff the following year, experienced a change in offensive coordinator, quarterbacked his team to a Big Ten championship and became the first Ohio State quarterback to beat Michigan in all four of his matchups with the Wolverines.But he does not want to talk about his career highlights — or lowlights. He said he never sits back to consider the successes of his program and conference-record-filled collegiate career.“I haven’t really thought about it, honestly,” Barrett said. “I think I’ve done some good things here at Ohio State, but I haven’t sat down and really thought about those things. That would be something I probably do later on in life, look back at just life in general and reflect and things like that.”Barrett seems to care less about the past and future with each passing day, preferring to take a “day-by-day” approach, a phrase he uttered at least five times Tuesday. He used to care. He used to wonder what life in the NFL would be like and consider the possibilities of his potential professional football career. That changed in 2015 when, amid a quarterback battle with Cardale Jones, Barrett began to let thoughts about the future seep into his mind and started to worry about things that had not yet happened, that he could not control. He let it negatively affect him.“So once I was able to just focus on the task at hand and things right now and the day-to-day things, one, I was less stressed. Two, things worked out better for me,” Barrett said. “Those are things that I focus on with the day to day. “And then, when those things come across, those hurdles come, I’ll jump them when they come.”The “day-by-day” attitude extends to Barrett’s thoughts on the future of his playing career. His career as a Buckeye will end Friday night when either confetti rains on his victorious team or it suffers its third loss of the season. But it will continue just weeks later when he takes the field for the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 20. He isn’t worried about that yet, saying he will focus on that next challenge after Friday’s game.When asked about what 2018 has in store for him, Barrett was succinct in his answer.“What does it hold for me? I’ve got a couple things going on,” he said. “It’s the 26th of December. I’m worried about today. Then when the 27th comes, I’ll worry about that.”Barrett doesn’t care about the past and the future, which is what everyone else seems to focus on.He doesn’t care about the dozens of Ohio State and Big Ten records he has set. He doesn’t care about the nice things said about him or the compliments dished out after big wins. Barrett doesn’t care about the vitriolic comments fans make when he makes mistakes.He used to. He used to let it affect him. But he doesn’t anymore. He’s focused on the now. read more

first_imgThe Brighton and Hove Albion defender scored the winning goal against Huddersfield Town last weekend on the English Premier LeagueThanks to a 69th-minute goal by Florin Andone, Brighton and Hove Albion was able to defeat Huddersfield Town in the English Premier League this past weekend.The goal came to break a 1-1 tied from the first half.And striker Glenn Murray is delighted with his teammate’s performance during the game.“Florin is a very bubbly character in the dressing room and has been very well received by the boys. It was big for him — he does everything properly and trains well every day,” Murray told the official Brighton website.Webster knows there’s a lot of competition before he debuts Manuel R. Medina – August 24, 2019 Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, hasn’t debuted in the English Premier League because he knows the competition is fierce.“He’s obviously picked up a few niggles along the way, so it hasn’t been a smooth transition and that’s given him a little bit of time to see the Premier League and understand what it’s about.”“But to see him get out there on Saturday and to score the winning goal against Huddersfield was great,” he added.“Obviously I was disappointed not to play, but I soon got over that with three points. It was much needed and very important for the team.”“It’s important to have healthy competition, we’re all friends off the field and we’re all pulling in the same direction- but I think all three of us [Jurgen Locadia] offer something different,” Murray concluded.last_img read more

first_img Share _____Copyright 2017 AccuWeather The tropical wave that was once tropical storm Harvey will push inland across the Yucatan Peninsula today, inundating the region with tropical moisture which will fuel heavy rainfall.Forecasters now say what could be Tropical Storm/Hurricane Harvey could make landfall somewhere from the Texas-Mexico border to central Texas coast sometime Friday. According to Weather Underground, “the current conditions should allow Harvey to regenerate into at least a tropical storm before it makes landfall on Friday, and it may be able to reach hurricane strength.” All of the models considered for Harvey’s landfall show that it will happen between the Mexico/Texas border and the central coast of Texas on Friday, weather experts add.  Regardless of development, coastal Texas can expect heavy rains in excess of five inches late this week.Meanwhile, the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is monitoring the redevelopment of the tropical storm iand its potential impact on Texas coast.Heavy rainfall will also continue to impact parts of Belize and Guatemala. Rainfall totals will average between 2 and 4 inches and some locations could pick up greater than 6 inches.This will lead to mudslides and flash flooding in any higher terrain. Additionally, there can be gusty winds with the storm and can cause sporadic power outages.Tropical Rainstorm Harvey will reemerge into the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday morning into an environment of lower vertical wind shear, very warm sea surface temperatures and deep moist unstable air.Given these favorable conditions the low pressure area should intensify back into a tropical storm sometime Wednesday or Thursday.While the future movement of this system remains uncertain, most global computer forecasts are projecting the system to track northwest towards the northeast coast of Mexico.If the system does track in this manner, it could make landfall over northeast Mexico or perhaps deep South Texas on Friday.Residents and interests over eastern mainland Mexico and over South Texas should pay close attention to the future redevelopment and movement of this potentially high-impact storm system.Elsewhere in the Atlantic, we are monitoring a tropical wave over the eastern Bahamas. There remains a potential for this system to become better organized over the next few days.Very heavy rainfall and localized flooding can be expected across the Bahamas and Florida today through Thursday as the system slowly makes a turn to the north as a trough picks it up and sends it out to sea later this week.The last tropical wave is located east-northeast of the Leeward Islands. This system is unlikely to develop as it struggles with strong wind shear.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)President Donald Trump celebrated the National Day of Prayer by announcing a White House initiative that he said would underpin policies recognizing the “vital role” of religion in the country. “America is a nation of believers,” he said.Shortly before the Rose Garden event Thursday, Trump acknowledged reimbursing his personal attorney for hush money the lawyer paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006. The White House says Trump denies that accusation, and Trump had claimed no knowledge of the financial arrangement.Today, it was my great honor to celebrate the #NationalDayOfPrayer at the @WhiteHouse, in the Rose Garden! Proclamation: https://t.co/4jAxJnBJoq pic.twitter.com/AsWTfpu290— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 3, 2018Trump tweeted before the faith event that the payments just before the 2016 election “had nothing to do with the campaign.”The president did not address the issue in his public remarks, focusing instead on the power of prayer as a centerpiece of American life.“Faith has shaped our families and it’s shaped our communities,” he said. “It’s inspired our commitment to charity and our defense of liberty, and faith has forged the identity and the destiny of this great nation that we all love.”Trump outlined steps by the administration to safeguard religious freedom and pledged to continue doing so.He signed an executive order creating a “White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative” that will, among other things, make recommendations on policies that affect faith-based and community programs. Trump said the new office will help ensure such groups have “equal access” to government money and the “equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs.”“We take this step because we know, that in solving the many, many problems and our great challenges, faith is more powerful than government and nothing is more powerful than God,” Trump said.Members of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, where more than two dozen worshippers were killed in a November 2017 shooting, attended the event.As Trump mingled with guests on his way back to the Oval Office, a reporter shouted to the president, “Why are you changing your story on Stormy Daniels?” Someone in the audience shouted back, “Shame on you!” Sharelast_img read more

The website will allow access to more data and more quickly, down to county and ZIP code levels.“Having more information on where opioids are being used and their effects on communities will let state agencies and our partners in cities and counties focus their efforts where the needs are most pressing,” said DSHS Commissioner Dr. John Hellerstedt.Additional funds will be used to train public health personnel at the community level on when and how to properly administer naloxone, a drug that can help prevent someone from dying from an opioid overdose, so they can then train first responders and others in their communities.DSHS also expects the grant will increase the number of doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners permitted to prescribe buprenorphine, a medication to treat opioid use in an office setting.Drug deaths in Texas and nationwide have been increasing and nearly half of all drug deaths in the state are attributed to opioids.last_img read more
