first_imgMonday Sep 20, 2010 Sonny Bill Williams finishes off a slick team try from Canterbury Canterbury were upset 31-20 by Taranaki in the ITM Cup on the weekend as the hosts scored five tries to two in a gritty performance of which they were deserving winners. Some fantastic tries were scored in the game, with this probably the pick of them.It was Taranakis 14th win over Canterbury in 57 meetings, and while the visitors should have stayed in control while up 20-19, they coughed up a few needless tries and let things slip.Ben Souness and Kurt Baker both crossed for neatly taken tries, while Sonny Bill Williams, as good as he was with ball in hand, failed to control two loose balls which allowed Taranaki to pounce.While his game is still far from perfect, its clearly visible that each week he plays, Williams is looking more likely to be a contender for an end of year tour slot with the All Blacks.“I think he’s shown that he’s a good athlete. He’s got some real good skills in some areas of the game. His offloading has been pretty special. And he’s also shown he hasn’t played a huge amount of rugby, so he’s got some potential to develop even further,” said New Zealand coach Graeme Henry of the league convert.The making of this try didnt have much to do with Sonny Bill though, as he simply got on the end of a superb passing sequence from his side that they started in their own half. Sam Monaghan, Matt Todd, Stephen Brett, and Andy Ellis all combined to dazzle the Taranaki defence before getting the ball to the supporting Williams.The other tries from the game will be featured as part of the ITM Cup highlights package later in the week, but for now heres this standout effort from a highly talented group of players.

first_imgBeaudette Family(LOS ANGELES) — A scientist mysteriously killed while camping with his two young daughters died from being shot in the head, according to the coroner’s office.Tristan Beaudette, 35, was gunned down at about 4:45 a.m. Friday at Malibu Creek State Park in Southern California, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office and Department Medical Examiner said. No one else was injured, the sheriff’s office said.The coroner’s office didn’t release additional information.Beaudette was with his 2- and 4-year-old daughters when he was shot, officials said. His wife wasn’t on the camping trip because she was studying for an exam, according to ABC station KABC-TV.Now, his family is “heartbroken.”“The grief and trauma this loss has caused our close-knit family is indescribable,” Beaudette’s family said in a statement.“Married to his high-school sweetheart, Tristan was a supportive and generous husband, a full partner in every sense of the word,” the family said. “His selfless devotion to his children came naturally, and Tristan found true joy in all aspects of being a father.”“Tristan was universally admired by his friends and family,” the statement said. “A scientist who loved cooking and microbrews, Tristan was happiest out in nature, and spent every chance he could hiking, biking, snowboarding, and camping with his family.”But the killing remains a mystery as no arrests have been made, the sheriff’s office said.At least five other shootings were reported in and around the park in the last several years, leaving at least one person injured, according to The Los Angeles Times.The sheriff’s department said it hasn’t found any direct links with previous shootings and Beaudette’s killing but that it is reviewing some of the earlier incidents, according to the Times.“California State Parks has turned over to the sheriff’s department all reports from 2016 to present, regarding the illegal discharge of weapons at Malibu Creek State Park,” a parks spokesperson said in a statement. “Due to the ongoing investigation, this is all of the information that California State Parks can provide at the moment.”The spokesperson added, “Our hearts go out to the victim and his family during this difficult time. The safety of park visitors and our employees is a top priority. California State Parks is working closely with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives as they investigate.”Anyone with information about Beaudette’s killing is asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,I want to thank everybody who attended Monday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony. I particularly want to thank Becky Wynne, who was the keynote speaker for the event and celebrated the life of her brother, Rick Blood, who died in the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. Like all of us, Becky and Rick shared a love of Ocean City. Her speech was a moving reminder of how fragile life can be and of the importance of cherishing all the moments we share on Earth. If you were not able to attend the event, it will air on OCTV-97 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday and again at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.I’m sad to report on the unexpected death of Ed Speitel on Monday at age 61. Speitel was an Ocean City resident, engineering company owner, active member of St. Damien Parish and board member of the Ocean City Housing Authority. Michele and I would like to extend our condolences to all of his family and friends. We’re grateful for his friendship, his character and his service to all Ocean City residents.William “Bill” Scheible retired Wednesday after a career of more than 30 years as artistic director of the Ocean City Pops. Sept. 13, 2017 was proclaimed “Bill Scheible Day” in his honor. Bill conducted more than 1,000 performances, 50 musicals and a wide variety of other productions during his exceptional career. Scheible kept alive an Ocean City tradition that began in the 1920s and continued to evolve to include music of every variety — from opera to Elton John. I want to thank Bill for his outstanding service and wish him the best in retirement. The future of the Pops will be bright because of the foundation he helped to build.The latest forecasts call for Jose to pass by Ocean City as a hurricane on its journey over the Atlantic Ocean in the next several days. The center of the storm and the worst of its wind and rain are expected to remain offshore. But it appears fairly certain that Jose will generate big and rough surf that will build by the end of the weekend and peak on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The Ocean City Beach Patrol will close all guarded beaches for the season after Sunday (Sept. 17). I urge everybody to swim only at protected beaches (see list) this weekend and to stay out of the ocean next week as the conditions get worse.The Ocean City Tourism Development Commission in conjunction with the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce recently introduced a new smartphone app that includes all the latest information on weather, events, shopping, eating and enjoying everything in Ocean City. The app is a great tool to keep up on all the latest information on having fun here in town, but it also includes technology that can deliver targeted notifications in the event of weather emergencies. Search for “Ocean City Vacation” for the free app and look for the dark-blue OCNJ icon.Jose is still a long way away, and the weekend forecast looks warm and dry. It should be ideal for the Airport Festival 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and the Boardwalk Aerobatic Air Show at 1 p.m. Sunday. The weekend festivities also will include a pyrotechnic performance by a skydiving team over the boardwalk on Saturday at 8 p.m. Team Fastrax will land on the beach between Seventh Street and Eighth Street. For more information on the air shows and other events, visit oceancityvacation.com. Miss New Jersey Kaitlyn Schoeffel, who was second runner-up in the recent Miss America Pageant, will greet fans before and during intermission of the Ocean City Pops season finale on Sunday (Sept. 17). For ticket information, visit www.oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice.I hope you all enjoy the weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorlast_img read more

first_imgIn  September, Velvet Canada, a graduate of Saint Mary’s Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) fourth SPARK program in South Bend, will open her own dance studio named DanceHipology, WEI director Martha Smith said. “Velvet was a student of our fourth session of SPARK,” Smith said. “She came to us with a lot of enthusiasm. From the very beginning it was obvious that she meant business, literally. She participated in all of the sessions and by the end of the program she had finished her business plan and was ready to go forth with her idea. Now, she is the first SPARK graduate to open a brick and mortar business.”  The eleven-week program SPARK is modeled after a San Francisco non-profit called the Women’s Initiative, Smith said. Both programs include intense training sessions on topics such as marketing, break-even points, mission statements, business plans, stress management, networking, record-keeping and loan information. “We learned about banking, met with bankers and realized it is not that hard to start a business,” Canada said. “I learned being an entrepreneur is really just time, effort and knowing the right people.”  Canada, who graduated with a Bachelors of Arts from Notre Dame in 2009, said she developed a passion for ballroom dancing while attending the University and has now been dancing for seven years. “I have been a professional dancer for three years now and I cannot wait to share my passion with the South Bend community,” Canada said. “I really just want to share this passion with others and get others to get out there, shake their booty and have fun.” Canada said for the past two to three years she has had a dream of opening a dance studio, and in December she decided to make this dream a reality. To move forward, Canada applied for the SPARK program. “My boss saw information about the SPARK program in the newspaper and thought I would be a great candidate,” Canada said. “Turns out I was and the program really lit a fire under what I wanted to do in terms of opening a business.” She said she is tailoring her studio toward hip-hop and ballroom dancing, but has several goals for the studio. “My goal is to have a kids group that can cultivate the culture of hip-hop and realize it is not a thug thing,” Canada said. “You can dance to hip-hop with classical music of the popular hits of today. I also want people to know ballroom dancing is not something that has to be danced … with stuffy symphony music. There are some cool songs you can dance [to for] ballroom.” Though tailored to these two types of dancing, Canada said her studio will offer a variety of different classes. “We are going to have all different types of classes,” Canada said. “If you want to learn moves that a motown back-up singer would have to know, we are going to have a class for that. We are also going to have Zumba and hip-hop workout classes for people of all ages. One of my teachers is trained in Tae Kwon Do and he will be teaching a Martial Arts dance class. There really will be a class for everyone.” Having been mentored by the SPARK program, Canada said she is looking forward to giving back to South Bend community and paying her mentoring skills forward. “I came to this city seven years ago and can honestly say I have fallen in love with South Bend,” Canada said. “This city has a lot of talent and I would love to help dancers in anyway possible. Whether that is helping anyone that has a goal of being a successful dancer or someone that would like to open her own studio, I would like to offer my skills and experience.” Canada said she is thankful to the SPARK program for giving her the extra boost of confidence to start her own studio. “I have recommended others to do the SPARK program and will continue to do so,” Canada said. Smith said SPARK represents an organization of community members investing in women who will eventually give back to the greater South Bend community.  “Thanks to the financial support of KeyBank, 1st Source Bank, PNC Bank, NIPSCO, The Pokagon Fund, the involvement of dedicated community facilitators and SCORE volunteers, SPARK continues to pioneer and meet the needs of women-related causes,” Smith said. To learn more about Dancehipology you can visit www.dancehipology.com or call 574-400-5408 to sign up for fall classes. The studio is located in the Emporium Building at 121 South Niles Avenue.

first_imgLiverpool have agreed to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson for a world record fee of £66m, reports the Liverpool EchoThe Brazil international emerged as one of the most promising young goalkeepers in European football after replacing the Juventus-bound Wojciech Szczesny as Roma’s new number one last season.After many standout performances in both the Serie A and the Champions League, Alisson had caught the interest of many European giants for a move this summer with Real Madrid leading the way.But with the La Liga side set to now sign Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea this summer, Liverpool look set to sign Alisson themselves.This new development comes, despite Roma president James Pallotta having stated back in April that they had no interest in selling.“We have no intention of selling him,” said the 60-year-old.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“I mean zero at all. I’m sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don’t have any interest in selling him, he’s a great goalkeeper.”But it appears that Liverpool have got their man.The Reds have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old in the past 12 months and appear to have increased their efforts following Loris Karius’ blunders in last season’s Champions League final.Earlier this week in fact, Liverpool had a £60m bid rejected by Roma but they appear to have made a breakthrough in talks with the club now prepared to make Alisson the expensive goalkeeper of all-time.With a fee now having been agreed on, Liverpool can now officially approach Alisson and begin discussing personal terms,While the signing of the Brazilian goalkeeper will increase Liverpool’s spending this summer to over £150m, Jurgen Klopp has decided that it is a necessary addition to his squad as they look to mount a challenge for the Premier League title in the new season.last_img read more

Playing for Belgium is something else.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“Playing for the Brazilian national team… It’s Brazil, I feel at home’. Then Lukaku said: ‘If that’s the way it is, you have to follow your heart’.“And then he respected my decision.”Pereira was in Belgium itself while the national side knocked Brazil out of the World Cup in the quarter-finals.“It was complicated. I was in Belgium watching and it was difficult to see Brazil lose. Everybody messing with me. Wow, it was… I was very angry,” he said.“I have a friend from Belgium and I was watching it with him.“I couldn’t do it, I left the room, I got very mad.“And they all had a laugh, my father’s friends saying ‘wow, look at Brazil there, you have to choose Belgium, you have to choose Belgium’.“I said, ‘I can’t do it, I can’t do it’.”last_img read more

first_imgDirector of football Joaquin Caparros concedes that Sevilla are not optimistic over signing Alvaro Morata from Chelsea, despite the player himself being interested in making the moveSince arriving at Chelsea in July 2017 for a club-record deal of £60m from Real Madrid, Morata has been frequently linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge.The Spanish striker has only scored 16 goals in 47 Premier League games for the Blues and his struggles up front, along with fellow Olivier Giroud, has forced coach Maurizio Sarri to deploy Eden Hazard in a “false nine” role.Reports emerged in Spain this week claiming that Morata’s agent, Juanma Lopez, arrived at Sevilla on Monday to begin talks over a six-month loan deal.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).But Caparros admits that Chelsea’s tough stance in negotiations makes a deal for Morata unlikely.“It is true that we have an interest in this player [Morata], but it is a very, very complicated operation,” Caparros told SevillaTV.“The player may want to come here over other options, but it is very complicated. Chelsea are a club who are very difficult to negotiate [with].”However, Caparros was able to provide Sevilla fans with more positive news by expressing his confidence in reaching a deal for Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi.last_img read more
