Brady not thinking of ’08 injury as he prepares for Chiefs

first_imgTom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots reacts before a preseason game with the New York Giants at Gillette Stadium on August 31, 2017 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Jim Rogash/Getty Images/AFPFOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts — The previous time Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened a season at home against Kansas City in 2008, it ended with him limping off the field with a season-ending knee injury.Now nine years removed from the most significant injury of his career, Brady said it is the furthest thing from his mind as New England prepares to host the Chiefs on Thursday night.ADVERTISEMENT NATO’s aging eye in the sky to get a last overhaul With minimal new film of Kansas City’s starters to dissect at this point, Brady is expecting to see plenty of wrinkles from what he called an “explosive” unit.One of the players he singled out was cornerback Marcus Peters. Peters tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions during the 2015 regular season. He followed that up by tying for second in the league with six picks in 2016.Brady also is expecting to be challenged by safety Eric Berry and the active linebacker duo of Derrick Johnson and Justin Houston.“They have playmakers,” Brady said. “When they’re roaming around, you can’t just stare them down right where you want to throw the ball. It’s always a little cat and mouse with safeties and cornerbacks. … That’s why they force that many turnovers.”But Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said familiarity alone won’t be enough to get Brady off his game.ADVERTISEMENT View comments “Yeah, I didn’t think about that,” Brady said Monday. “Time flies.”What’s also a distant memory is the unfamiliar situation he found himself in last season when he was forced to sit out the first four games of 2016 after accepting his four-game “Deflategate” punishment.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingBrady brushed off that disappointment by capturing his fifth Super Bowl in February. Now he’s happy just to be thinking about football and how to get the best of a Kansas City team that was the AFC’s No. 2 seed in the playoffs last season.It’s a unique challenge for a Patriots offense that will have several new options for the 40-year-old quarterback to utilize as he tries to deal with a defense that ranked first in the NFL last season with 33 takeaways.

You’re aware of how good he is,” Sutton said. “When you play (271) games, pass for 61,000 yards — or whatever he has — you’re playing against a football player, a quarterback that’s really talented, that has a great skillset — great command of his offense in all regards. It’s just a huge challenge.”But even at 40, Brady said opening a season in prime time still offers the same excitement as it did early in his career.“Everyone’s pretty amped up for this one,” he said. “It’s been waiting a long time for this. … It’s a big game and it’s an important one.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes dies at 59 with wife by his side LATEST STORIES Federer calls medical timeout ‘precaution’; del Potro nextcenter_img Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo MOST READ Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claim Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Jos Buttler will trust instincts in ‘luxury role’ for England against Pakistan

first_imgShare on Pinterest Reaction around the county squads has been lukewarm but the hope is that by getting the international cricketers on board – via presentations from the tournament director, Sanjay Patel, and its architect, Mike Fordham – some positivity may trickle down.Asked for his take on the new 100-ball concept, Buttler replied: “People don’t necessarily accept change readily. I’m sure in 2003, when Twenty20 was introduced, it was seen as such a radical move. Gradually, it’s been accepted and has done really well.“There are some fantastic ideas behind The Hundred and what it’s trying to achieve. If it can fulfil those ambitions then it’s going to be great for cricket. If it’s got the best players around the world and the best players in England, I’m sure it’s going to be successful.” Jos Buttler has admitted he is a luxury in England’s re-fitted Test team and that his return will divide opinion. But as the side’s most potent white-ball weapon prepares for a third stab at the longest format, he says the plan this time is to play on instinct.How Buttler fares in the series with Pakistan that starts at Lord’s on Thursday will make one of the most intriguing subplots during the early Test summer as Joe Root’s side look to return to winning ways after their winter of discontent.Can such a talent, fresh from wreaking havoc as an opener in the Indian Premier League but someone who has not faced a red Dukes ball since the end of last season with Lancashire, really come off as a specialist game changer at No 7?Though not entirely new territory, given the last three of his 18 caps came in the same role during the 2016 tour of India, the 27-year-old is planning a fresh mindset as he looks to repay a significant show of faith from the new national selector, Ed Smith, and Root.

Thank you. “It is a luxury role for a side to have,” said Buttler, before his first training session back. “For me it is about trusting instincts and not fighting them. In the past I have potentially felt as if I had to play in a certain way or be something I am not. So as much as I can I will be trusting my instincts. That is going to be the best way to be successful.”His regret refers chiefly to the 2015 Ashes when, having registered half-centuries in five of his first eight Tests, Buttler went into his shell and appeared to lose the location of his off stump. Two matches into the following winter in United Arab Emirates and he was forced to hand over the wicketkeeping gloves to Jonny Bairstow.Buttler said: “I have learned a lot about myself over the past two years. If you are going to fail, fail in a genuine way and not someone else’s way. It’s going to be a challenge but from the conversations I’ve had with Joe and Ed Smith, it’s very much they want me to play the way that suits me and in the fashion they believe will get the best out of me.”His recall is one in which his perceived ability has trumped his form in this format. Indeed, Buttler was himself surprised when, while waiting for a match between his Rajasthan Royals side and Kolkata Knightriders, and with a record-equalling run of five successive IPL half-centuries behind him, he got the call.So with just four first-class centuries to his name – the last of which came four years ago when newly transferred from Taunton to Old Trafford – and an exclusive diet of white-ball cricket this year, Buttler accepts that some of the county batsmen who had hoped to force their way into the Test team may feel aggrieved.Buttler said: “I’m very aware that I’m the beneficiary of opinions. I don’t know whether there’s a right or wrong. Everyone has an opinion. That’s why sport is so interesting. I’ve been afforded an amazing opportunity to come and play and one that I’m excited about. I am accepting of the noise around it. That’s outside my control.“It shows that people are very open-minded and there’s not only one way in to national selection. If anything that should benefit guys as you can do things your way. Whatever opportunities are afforded to you, you shouldn’t be worried about taking them for risk of saying: ‘If I go and play in a tournament somewhere that’s my red-ball ambitions finished.’”As Root’s side ready themselves for Pakistan, one such tournament is a hot topic of discussion, with the Test players present at Lord’s being briefed in small groups on the England and Wales Cricket Board’s latest thinking regarding The Hundred.

Nova Scotia deletes outdated spinster reference from marriage law

first_imgHALIFAX – Nova Scotia is modernizing its outdated marriage law by, among other things, removing references to spinsters and illegitimate children.As well, the new Marriage Act will be aligned with federal legislation by removing the authority for people under the age of 16 to marry.The province’s Liberal government says all religious references will be removed to make the law more inclusive.Marriage licences, which must be purchased before two people can marry, will now be valid for three months instead of one year — a change that will make the law consistent with other jurisdictions.Service Nova Scotia Minister Geoff MacLellan says identity security will be improved by requiring both people who wish to marry to complete a marriage licence affidavit.The legislation, which used to be called the Solemnization of Marriage Act, was introduced last fall and will come into effect on May 1.“We are making the act more inclusive and providing enhanced security to couples getting married in Nova Scotia,” MacLellan said in a statement released Wednesday.last_img read more

Huskies Fill The Bus Food Drive huge success

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 21st Annual Huskies Fill The Bus Food Drive was a huge success on Sunday as volunteers collected food items for the Salvation Army.Members of the Fort St. John Huskies, along with other volunteers, went around town collecting non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. Once the items were collected, they were brought back to the North Peace Arena to be sorted and packed into boxes.After being packed, the boxes were loaded into the Huskies coach bus and delivered to the Salvation Army. Packed boxes as they awaited to be loaded onto the bus. Photo by Scott BrooksCampaign Organizer, Allen Karasiuk, says the Food Drive was a big success.“The Food Drive was very successful this year as we did significantly better this year than last. As usual, the community was extremely generous in their donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank. In particular, ConocoPhillips was a lead corporate sponsor with a $1500 donation and the Burgher family (Paul, Mollie and Teri) donated approximately two pickup truckloads of food. The kids at Alwin Holland Elementary School also collected a significant amount of food.”Karasiuk also says they had approximately 60 volunteers to help out with the campaign.Cameron Eggie, Executive Director for the Fort St. John Salvation Army says the timing for Food Drive is perfect as they prepare for food hampers.“It’s really going to have an impact on our community over the Christmas season. We already have 140 people registered for food hampers in the community that we will be giving out in mid-December. So, the timing of this Food Drive is perfect because it comes right into when we have to prepare these food hampers.”last_img read more

Australian parliamentary network hacked; no sign data stolen

SYDNEY, Australia — Australia’s leading cybersecurity agency is investigating a breach of the country’s federal parliamentary computing network amid speculation of hacking by a foreign nation.Lawmakers and staff in the capital, Canberra, were made to change their passwords on the system after the overnight breach.A joint statement from House of Representatives Speaker Tony Smith and Senate President Scott Ryan says there’s no evidence that data had been accessed in the breach, but investigations are continuing.Cybersecurity expert Fergus Hanson, from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, says it’s likely a nation-state was behind the incident, though Australian officials have not blamed any country.In 2011 it was reported China was suspected of accessing the email system used by lawmakers and parliamentary staff.The Associated Press read more

UNICEF sends school supplies to violenceracked southern Thailand

With 30 schools destroyed and 5,000 students affected by violence in southern Thailand since the beginning of this year, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is sending school supplies to three provinces where confrontations between law enforcement officers and assailants killed 112 people last week.”We are dismayed by the number of young people who have been caught up in the violence and tragically lost their lives, and also the damage done to schools,” UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy said in a news release yesterday. “We urge everyone to respect children’s rights to safe and healthy lives, including the right to go to school.” Teachers have been intimidated and there is a fear that some schools may not reopen after the current holiday due to security considerations, the agency said.The supplies, including sports equipment, have been purchased by UNICEF with funds donated by the people of Thailand.Acting UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Bertrand Ramcharan last week called on the authorities to quickly investigate the clashes in the provinces of Yala, Pattani and Songkla, and urged that immediate measures be taken to ensure full respect for the human rights of all concerned, including detainees. read more

first_imgA rider has died and another was seriously injured in two separate incidents at a quad and motocross event.Durham Police said they had “no choice” but to shut down the meeting on land next to Low Hardwick Farm, near Sedgefield, on safety grounds following the fatality and second injury.A spokesman said the first incident happened shortly after 1pm on Sunday when a male rider came off his bike and suffered critical injuries.He was taken by air ambulance to the James Cook University Hospital, in Middlesbrough, but was confirmed dead shortly after arrival.The spokesman said a woman was then hurt in a separate incident just before 2.10pm.

Livemarks restores Live Bookmarks support in Firefox

first_imgLivemarks restores Live Bookmarks support in Firefox by Martin Brinkmann on July 30, 2018 in Firefox – 20 commentsLivemarks is a brand new browser extension for the Firefox web browser that restores Live Bookmarks functionality in the web browser.Mozilla announced plans recently to remove Live Bookmarks support from the Firefox browser. The removal is scheduled to take place in Firefox 63 or 64; both versions of Firefox will be released in 2018.Live Bookmarks combines Firefox’s bookmarking functionality with the dynamic nature of RSS feeds to create auto-updating bookmark folders that list all recent entries from RSS feeds.The removal causes quite the issues for users who make use of the feature. Mozilla announced that it plans to export the list of feeds to an OPML file which the majority of RSS readers support.While there are some alternatives that might work for some users, there was not a real solution to regain the functionality once it is removed.LivemarksLivemarks is a new browser extension for the Firefox web browser by Tim Nguyen that is a rewrite of Foxish, a Chrome extension that adds Firefox-like RSS and Atom handling to Google’s web browser.The extension requires quite a few permissions to work but you can verify its source to make sure it does nothing unexpected (it does not at the time of writing).Livemarks adds RSS indicators to the Firefox address bar. A click on the icon displays all feeds the extension identified on the page. Another click on any of the linked feed links displays it directly in Firefox.This restores the RSS feed display functionality that Mozilla plans to remove as well. Select the “add Livemark” button at the top to create a new live bookmark for the RSS feed in Firefox.The extension adds it to the Bookmarks menu of the Firefox browser automatically when you activate the option.Open the Bookmarks library to move the live bookmark to another location, for example to the bookmarks toolbar or another bookmarks folder.You can manage all live bookmarks that you have added to the Firefox browser with the help of the extension in the Livemark’s options.There you find listed all live bookmarks and a menu icon next to each. Activate the icon to display the fields that you may edit. These are, at the time of writing: name of the feed. feed URL, Site URL, parent folder, maximum items.Livemarks cannot be used to import existing live bookmarks from Firefox or an OPML feed; this means that you need to add the bookmarks one by one to the extension.Closing WordsLivemarks restores functionality in Firefox that Mozilla plans to remove from the browser in the near future. It is useful for Firefox users who use the Live Bookmarks functionality right now, and new users who discovered it just now.Summary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 4 votes Software Name LivemarksSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

Major transport congestion predicted for Sydney Airport

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T A federal and state government report into the construction of a second Sydney airport suggests excessive traffic woes will befall future commuters. The government inquiry deems that a second airport in Sydney is urgently required. Trains servicing the airport will exceed capacity as early as next year, reported. Important motorways and roads will also be heavily affected, resulting in massive traffic jams on the M5 and CBD access roads. The lack of a second airport in Sydney will cost the Australian economy $59.5 billion, as well as forgoing $34 billion worth of GDP. The report, commissioned by Transport Minister Anthony Albanese, also calls for a provision to elevate the current flight cap of 80 take-offs per hour to 85.The existing 11pm – 6am flight curfew, although drafted to be altered, will not be challenged.

Hotelbeds strengthens commitment

These channels provide hotel partners with returning guests that book further in advance, cancel less, spend more in-destination and stay longer.In addition to accommodation, Hotelbeds is also the world’s largest B2B seller of travel ancillaries, offering 24,000 transfer routes and 18,000 activities, as well as attractions, tickets and car hire. Operating under the ‘Beyond the Bed’ product line, it provides both hoteliers and travel distribution partners with an efficient platform and powerful tools to easily integrate and commercialise its leading portfolio of high-margin products.The company is headquartered in Palma, Spain and employs around 5,000 employees across over 60 offices globally.last_img read more
