Kevin Ware Cleared to Travel With Cardinals to Atlanta

Posted on by

Louisville guard Kevin Ware, who sustained compound fractures to his right tibia in the first half of Sunday’s 85-63 victory over Duke, has been cleared to travel with the Cardinals to his hometown Atlanta for Saturday’s Final Four game against Wichita State.Ware, who underwent surgery immediately after sustaining the gruesome injury, gave his first on-camera interview Wednesday morning with ESPN.“A lot of the guys are still trying to get over the fact of me being out, not being able to play,” Ware said. “But I told them, ‘You all are going to be hearing the same out of me.’”The sophomore guard said that his injury was a freak accident, occurring after he contested a jump shot and did not see where he was landing.There was some speculation that Ware may have had a prior stress fracture or shin problems that caused the injury of such magnitude, but he said he did not.“I just want to win at this point,” Ware told ESPN’s Rece Davis. “That would mean so much more to me than anything.”Defeating the Shockers and winning a national championship would be even more  rewarding for Ware, as he would be in his hometown of Atlanta. Ware played high school basketball at Rockdale County High School, just outside the city, before moving to New York to finish his high school basketball career in the Bronx.Ware returned to campus on Tuesday after he was released from an Indianapolis hospital. He will use crutches for the next eight to 12 weeks before he can start rehabilitation, which will take at least a year.“The most important thing to me is he’s going to be fine again some day. He’s going to play basketball,” Cardinals coach Rick Pitino told ESPN Wednesday. “As long as I know that, everything going to be fine.”Ware said he has no intentions of  ever watching the replay of how he broke his leg, because the injury is now in the past. He acknowledged that if he were to see the replay, it would affect his mental state.But he said if the Cardinals win the national championship, he would not hesitate to help his teammates and coaches cut down the nets. read more

Who Hates The Patriots The Most

And for a large subset of that group, that specifically means hate-watching the New England Patriots.It’s no secret that winning five Super Bowls, 25 playoff games and 196 regular season games in a span of 17 years — not to mention breaking some rules along the way — will earn you a few enemies. But has New England’s nearly two-decade reign of terror over the NFL made them as universally despised as it seems? Have they reached the New York Yankees’ Evil Empire status? We decided to put it to a test.We commissioned SurveyMonkey Audience to conduct a poll of NFL fans in early September,1Specifically, the poll was conducted among a national sample of adults ages 18 and older, from Sept. 1-7. Only responses from self-described NFL fans (including those who labeled themselves “casual” fans) were included in the analysis. tracking how many would classify each franchise among their three favorite — and least favorite — teams. The survey also asked respondents to assign a favorability rating to a randomly drawn subset of teams, which we used to further judge the admiration — and, more importantly, the vitriol — between fan bases.It should be noted that the Patriots are among the most popular teams in our database (cough, bandwagon), with more than 16 percent of all NFL fans listing them among their favorite teams. That ranks third in the league, trailing only a pair of historic NFL bluebloods: the Green Bay Packers (23 percent) and Dallas Cowboys (19 percent). But they’re also one of the two teams — along with the Cowboys — who stand head and shoulders above the rest of the league in terms of hatred from other fanbases. More than 26 percent of fans polled listed New England as one their three least-favorite teams; only Dallas checked in higher at 31 percent. (No. 3 were the Baltimore Ravens at 13 percent.) 32Jacksonville Jaguars1.832Kansas City Chiefs3.7 Surveying 2,290 Americans who described themselves as NFL fans, conducted from September 1-7, 2017.Source: Surveymonkey Audience Does this mean the Cowboys and all the Jerry World glitz are actually more disliked than the Patriots? Not necessarily. A good amount of the Cowboys hate is accounted for by deep-seated rivalries with their fellow NFC East teams. Patriots hatred is far more egalitarian.For example, the fan groups who hate Dallas the most — Philadelphia and Washington — really, really hate them: A staggering 50 percent of fans who ranked either the Eagles or Redskins among their top three teams also ranked the Cowboys among their bottom three.The Patriots, by contrast, racked up their high dislike rate without the benefit of such intense hatred from specific fan bases. No single group of fans even cracked 35 percent, in terms of the share who ranked New England among their bottom three teams. But the Pats also collected a good amount of hate from a diverse spread of some of the league’s largest fan bases, which nearly helped them catch the Cowboys as the league’s most disliked team.Here’s the rundown of the fan bases who most frequently listed the Patriots among their three least favorite teams: 5Pittsburgh Steelers14.84Pittsburgh Steelers11.3 4Seattle Seahawks15.14Oakland Raiders11.3 9Philadelphia EaglesNFC East2.929.9 ⋮ 27Tampa Bay Buccaneers4.628Houston Texans5.1 24Oakland RaidersAFC West3.125.6 FAVORITE TEAMIN TOP 3 8Tennessee TitansAFC South1.430.0 3New England Patriots16.43Baltimore Ravens13.2 The most loved — and hated — teams in the NFLShare of NFL fans who ranked a given team among the their three favorite, and least-favorite, teams 7Buffalo BillsAFC East1.430.4 25Kansas City ChiefsAFC West2.025.4 RK▲▼FAN BASE▲▼DIVISION▲▼SHARE OF FANS▲▼PUT PATS IN BOTTOM 3▲▼ 1New York GiantsNFC East3.8%34.7% 24Kansas City Chiefs5.724Detroit Lions5.9 Perhaps surprisingly, given that their favorite team beat the Pats in two Super Bowls over the last 10 years, fans of the New York Giants win the crown as the group that hates New England most, with 34.7 percent of them ranking the Pats among their bottom three teams. (Granted, the poll was conducted in the middle of a pennant race between the Red Sox and the Yankees — so there’s no telling what lingering Boston-New York resentment carried over.) Add in animosity from a handful of other huge fan bases — the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks (all of whom the Pats have beaten in the playoffs this decade) — plus leftover resentment from fans of the Carolina Panthers (who apparently have really long memories) and Indianapolis Colts (for whom it’s unclear how much hate is motivated by DeflateGate and how much by the Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rivalry), and there are very few corners of America where Patriots fans won’t be behind enemy lines.But look on the bright side, Patriots fans: In order to be at the top of the “hate” list, you have to be successful. The top six teams on our list have combined for 24 Super Bowl wins. By comparison, the bottom of the list is filled with teams that are either relatively new or simply inoffensive because they haven’t won many playoff games. And the biggest congratulations are in order for the Kansas City Chiefs, who are currently No. 1 in FiveThirtyEight’s rankings and are also the least disliked team in America, according to the poll. What’s more, this poll was conducted before Kansas City knocked off the Patriots in the NFL season opener.Check out our latest NFL predictions. 2Pittsburgh SteelersAFC North5.333.0 29Los Angeles RamsNFC West1.521.6 29Los Angeles Rams4.229Indianapolis Colts4.8 19Cincinnati BengalsAFC North1.726.4 15Atlanta FalconsNFC South3.028.2 7Chicago Bears12.47Cleveland Browns11.2 14Miami DolphinsAFC East2.528.2 23Detroit Lions5.823Miami Dolphins6.1 4Indianapolis ColtsAFC South1.932.0 13Chicago BearsNFC North4.528.4 9San Francisco 49ers11.19New Orleans Saints9.4 17Baltimore RavensAFC North2.427.3 21Houston TexansAFC South2.526.3 Which fan bases hate the Patriots the most?Among respondents who identified themselves as an NFL fan, share who also put the Patriots in their three least favorite teams 18Detroit LionsNFC North2.127.1 12Green Bay PackersNFC North8.329.1 27Washington RedskinsNFC East2.223.0 26Dallas CowboysNFC East6.925.3 23Arizona CardinalsNFC West2.325.7 11Jacksonville JaguarsAFC South0.629.3 10New York Giants10.410Buffalo Bills9.3 LEAST-FAVORITE TEAMIN TOP 3 1Green Bay Packers23.0%1Dallas Cowboys30.7% 31Tennessee Titans3.931Tampa Bay Buccaneers3.9 25Indianapolis Colts5.325Los Angeles Chargers5.5 30Buffalo Bills4.030Tennessee Titans4.5 5Denver BroncosAFC West4.931.6 22New Orleans SaintsNFC South4.425.8 —New England PatriotsAFC East5.9— Surveying 2,290 Americans who described themselves as NFL fans, conducted from September 1-7, 2017.Source: Surveymonkey Audience ⋮ read more

Government put a hold on issuing any more building certificates to Priton

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 7, 2016 – The Planning Department is now taking a strong stand against new homeowners suffering the fate of those currently plagued with problems in the Priton Phase II development in North West Providenciales.  In a media statement which came Wednesday evening, Minister Amanda Missick through her Planning Department determined that there were indeed problems with Priton and that there are indeed parts of the development agreement left undone; until those issues are dealt with no more move in certificates are going to be issued.  All of this is unfolding as home owners tonight plan another meeting to unite on the situation which has seen cracked walls, popping tiles, leaking walls and ceilings, extreme cases of mold and massive sink holes in the land.It also comes as Magnetic Media learns that one of the two brothers who own Priton, Kurt Soukup is in country and working with his attorneys to wind up the company.  Soukup, who is American, is currently in breach of his contract with government according to the Minister’s release and according to former Premier Michael Misick who last week said there were concessions given including discounts and tax breaks on crown land.Here is what Minister Missick explained via media statement last night.  I quote:  “Priton has obligation to pave all roads, develop a park, install drainage system and install street lights.  Approximately 65% of roads have been completed, some street lights have been installed, however the park is not yet developed and the drainage system is not yet completed.”Add to this, we now learn that after the litany of complaints from phase one development, Priton development was supposed to make these changes to their pre-fab home constructions.  “Build cistern in each house. Install hurricane shutters on each building.  Change the way of connecting the wall panels.  To have three (3) supporting connections instead of two (2) connections. Use holding down hurricane straps on the roof rafters instead of hurricane clips. Use pressure treated timber or spray anti – termite substances on the timber used in structures.” While the Planning Department, to residents we spoke to last night sounds tough in their talk of giving no more occupancy certificates, residents say the statement, which Premier Rufus Ewing promised Magnetic Media would come is a cop out.  The Minsiter says that a structural engineer was hired to review the situation of the natural hole which opened up after Tropical Storm Cristobal in Azzizi Parker’s yard, but said her home is structurally safe and so they deem her to be okay.  This is however being said when the home owners back yard space is almost completely taken up by a hole that Priton Development covered up.  Parker and others fear that they are actually living on top of those vertical caves.last_img read more

Jamaicas Vice Chancellor calls for Reparation Payment to descendants of slaves

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, October 12, 2017 – Kingston – Vice Chancellor, University of the West Indies, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, has renewed the call for reparations valuing £76 billion be paid to the descendants of enslaved people of the Caribbean by former European slave-trading nation, Britain.“The £20 million that they paid to the slave owners should have been paid to the enslaved.  We have to make a claim to that money.   We have an entitlement to that £20 million that was paid in 1834 (which) today values £76 billion,” he said.Professor Beckles made the call while speaking on the topic ‘Faked Emancipation, Insincere Independence, Reparatory Justice: A 21st Century Paradigm for Economic Growth’ at a symposium held at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, University of the West Indies, on October 11.The Professor, who is also Chair of the CARICOM Reparation Commission, further suggested that the Caribbean’s bilateral debt should be offset against the £76 billion.   He argued that the entire Caribbean domestic debt should be capitalised and turned into a grant for social investment in democracy development.“In other words, the British left us to clean up the mess.   When Jamaica became independent, 70 per cent of the Jamaican people could not read or write.   They became independent and yet three quarters of them could not read or write and the British said go and develop,” he said.Professor Beckles informed that this resulted in massive illiteracy, little or no infrastructure, among other things.“The result is that the Government of Jamaica, like other governments, had to spend millions and billions of dollars to build schools and health systems and that is one of the social democracies that have to be repaid,” he said.Furthermore, Professor Beckles is calling for the creation of a Caribbean Sustainability Fund.   “We need a fund, a Marshall Plan to help to clean up this mess that we inherited, that we have been trying to clean up; but we cannot do it by ourselves, because we did not create it, and despite our best efforts, it is overwhelming us,” he said.“Britain needs to be brought to the table to discuss the process of reparation, and if we can take this conversation to the higher level and make these demands… then these should become the basis of a summit,” he said.Meanwhile, Director, Centre for Reparation Research, Professor Verene Shepherd, in a message said the discussions are anchored within the context of history, human rights, the right to development, ethical and moral obligation, legal justification and political responsibility in the postcolonial age, looking at government responses to reparation and comparing different national/transnational political contexts.Release: JISPhoto credit: Times Higher Education Related Items:last_img read more

Page Views for Print Magazines

Posted on by

first_imgDeSilva + Phillips, the New York-based media banking firm, published a report yesterday on the state of celebrity media. If you’re in the business of celebrity media—particularly the print side—it’s a must read. Spoiler alert: The outlook is, uh, not so good.You can read FOLIO:’s full synopsis of D+P’s report here.But here’s one interesting point I didn’t include in the write-up. On page 12, Ken Sonenclar, the author of the report, makes an interesting argument—and possibly invents a new metric–for celebrity magazine publishers wrestling over the ad dollars fleeing print for the Web:”Celebrity magazines offer a degree of reach that even the dominant websites should envy. The best way to view this is via the language of the Web, where many celebrity magazine “page views” dwarf web page views. Consider US Weekly. In a four-issue month, the magazine will publish 384 pages (96 pages/issue). Taking the magazine’s recent average circulation of 1.9 million, and assuming a conservative pass-along multiplier of three, yields in excess of 2 billion page views for US Weekly per month. That is seven times the page views of TMZ, the Web site with the most page views.” Calculating page views for print magazines. Did we just invent a new, viable metric here? Or is it merely the last (faint) gasps of desperation for a dying medium?last_img read more
