A Big Name Is Being Mentioned For The Colorado Job

(Photo by Garrett W. Ellwood/Getty Images)Colorado football will reportedly fire Mike MacIntyre after six seasons, per a report.Things have gone way downhill for MacIntyre and the Buffaloes since the team made the Pac-12 Championship Game in 2016.The team lost its final three games in 2017, to finish 5-7 and miss bowl eligibility. This year’s collapse was far worse.The Buffs were 5-0 to start the 2018 season, including wins over rival Colorado State, Nebraska, Arizona State and UCLA. Since, the team has lost six straight.On Saturday, the team was blown out by No. 21 Utah, 30-7.A new report by ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg identifies a few names that could be on Colorado football’s list to replace Mike MacIntyre.The biggest name is probably West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen. Last night’s loss at Oklahoma State aside, the Mountaineers are having a tremendous season and could play for the Big 12 title game.If he wants a change of scenery though, Colorado is an interesting job in a winnable division, at least as long as USC continues to sleepwalk.Other names raised include former Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich, who coached the Ducks to a national championship appearance, Fresno State’s Jeff Tedford, Boise State’s Bryan Harsin, and Syracuse’s Dino Babers.“I’m hearing Colorado athletic director Rick George wants a recognizable name with previous head-coaching experience. Possible candidates include Fresno State coach Jeff Tedford, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin, former Oregon coach and Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, and West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen, who may be interested in making a move. Syracuse coach Dino Babers also could be an interesting option.”All four college head coaches listed have had their teams ranked in the Top 25 this season, and two of the five names have Pac-12 head coaching experience.[ESPN]last_img read more

Fallout from Trudeaus brownface photo bombshell sure to dominate campaign

first_imgOTTAWA — It won’t be campaigning as usual for Justin Trudeau today as the Liberal leader grapples with the fallout from a bombshell that landed on the campaign trail.An 18-year-old photo surfaced Wednesday of him dressed elaborately as Aladdin, with his face and hands blackened by makeup.Trudeau apologized profusely for having indulged in what he acknowledged to be a racist act during an “Arabian Nights”-themed party at the Vancouver private school where he once taught.He conceded it will take some doing to restore his image as a champion of diversity and tolerance.“I’m asking Canadians to forgive me for what I did,” he said during an emergency news conference aboard the Liberal campaign plane before taking off from Nova Scotia for Winnipeg, where he is scheduled to have events today.“I shouldn’t have done that. It was a dumb thing to do. I’m disappointed in myself. I’m pissed off at myself for having done it. I apologize for it.”He added that he didn’t consider it a racist action at the time, “but now we know better.”“This is something unacceptable and it is racist.”Trudeau also confessed to having worn makeup during a high school talent show, while performing a version of Harry Belafonte’s “Banana Boat Song (Day-O).”He said he’ll spend this morning talking to his three kids about “taking responsibility for mistakes we make, about living every day to try to be a better person.” And he said he’ll be spending time talking to visible minority Liberal MPs and candidates, some of whom he spoke with Wednesday evening.Trudeau’s foes will no doubt also be grappling with the fallout while they go about their more routine campaigning. They all responded Wednesday night, but now have to weigh whether to pile on Trudeau or adhere to the political maxim of never interfering when an opponent is the process of destroying themselves.NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, the first federal party leader from a visible minority, is scheduled to be in Hamilton today. On Wednesday night, he responded more personally than politically, choking up as he talked about how people who have faced discrimination because of their skin colour will be hurt by the revelation about Trudeau’s past activities.Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer spoke only briefly after landing in Quebec, where he has events today in Saint-Hyacinthe, Granby and Sherbrooke, but signalled that he intends to give no quarter.“Wearing brown face is an act of open mockery and racism,” Scheer said. “It was just as racist in 2001 as it is in 2019. And what Canadians saw this evening is someone with a complete lack of judgment and integrity and someone who is not fit to govern this country.”Throughout the first week of the campaign, the Liberal war room has made hay with past comments and social media posts from Scheer and Conservative candidates, exposing what Liberals deem examples of intolerance toward minorities. Trudeau himself has called out Scheer for his refusal to march in gay Pride parades.On Twitter late Wednesday, People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier said he won’t accuse Trudeau of being a racist.“He’s the master of identity politics and the Libs just spent months accusing everyone of being white supremacists,” he tweeted. “He definitely is the biggest hypocrite in the country.”Green Leader Elizabeth May, who is to speak to the British Columbia Assembly of First Nations today in Vancouver, said Trudeau “must apologize for the harm done and commit to learning and appreciating the requirement to model social justice leadership at all levels of government. In this matter he has failed.”The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN human rights office regrets Israeli pullout from upcoming racism conference

19 November 2008The United Nations human rights office today voiced regret over Israel’s confirmation that it does not plan to take part in the so-called Durban Review Conference next year, which will examine the progress made worldwide since the 2001 global anti-racism summit was held in the South African city. “Given the critical importance of the issues under discussion at the Conference, broad participation is essential,” said Rupert Colville, a spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“These issues of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance are issues which affect all countries and millions of individuals around the world on a daily basis.”The review conference will be held in Geneva in late April next year to monitor the implementation of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action, which was agreed to by consensus at the summit in 2001.The spokesperson said the Declaration and Programme of Action were extremely valuable and contained “important and innovative recommendations for tackling racism in all its manifestations.”Israel and the United States also pulled out during the 2001 conference, citing concerns they had that the forum was being used by some Member States to push an anti-Israel agenda. read more

Retailers bracing for impact of economic slump this holiday season

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Retailers bracing for impact of economic slump this holiday season FREEIMAGES.COM by Jonathan Muma Posted Nov 13, 2015 11:44 am MDT The shopping season is officially upon us, but with all of the economic woes facing the province; it may be a less than stellar year for retailers.Most are trying to stay positive.CrossIron Mills General Manager James Moller predicts people will stop shopping for themselves, before they stop shopping for others.“I don’t know if it’s about Christmas shopping, but maybe it’s more about (purchases of) that new winter coat, or those winter boats. We’ve seen that been a little bit slower off the mark,” he said.He says there’s one benefit from the slumping economy: the low Canadian dollar.“It’s kept a few more shoppers at home this year, that maybe would be travelling to the U.S., so, we’re hoping that translates into a bit more sales,” Moller said.It’s unlikely there will be row after row of empty parking spots, but Chinook Mall Spokesperson Paige O’Neil says volume is one of the factors to consider.“I think our traffic, the number of guests that come through the building will be equal to or more than last year. It will depend on how much they’re spending this year,” she said.Both O’Neil and Moller say retailers will really be pushing Black Friday this year, which should be a good gauge as to whether it will be Happy Holidays for all, or a Blue Christmas.Maggie Schofield with the Downtown Business Association is bracing for the worst, but hoping for the best.“Well we certainly know that this will be a tougher Christmas season than we’ve seen in a number of years, even last year was really not that bad, all things considered, so, it was sort of at the beginning of the real downturn,” she said.She adds retailers and businesses have been quick to get up the lights and decorations, which always helps to lighten the mood. read more

No 7 Ohio State mens gymnastics in transition

It’s been a year of transition for the Ohio State men’s gymnastics team. Combine a young squad with an entirely new coaching staff led by former Oklahoma assistant, Rustam Sharipov, and it’s clear why some believed 2011-12 would be a rebuilding year for the Buckeyes. But for senior Ty Echard, that’s just not the case. “It’s gone better than I would have thought it ever would have gone,” Echard said. That’s not to say the changeover has been easy, though. “It’s a battle, the whole season’s a battle,” Echard said. In fact, Sharipov said the focus coming into the season was on molding the team internally, rather than to necessarily “accomplish a lot of stuff on the field.” “Our goal is more (to) accomplish (work) at the gym. In the practice, our goal is to unite the team, change their work ethics, how the guys interact with each other, with the coaches,” Sharipov said. “I think that’s going to affect how we look at the competition.” Sharipov said the way the team practices should dictate their performance against other teams. “(Our) outcome is going to come from how we act at the gym,” he said. Being ranked No. 7 nationally suggests the Buckeyes have done just that. Freshman Danny Steiner said he thinks the team has defied much of the expectations that surrounded them at the beginning of the season. “With the change in coaching with Rustam as our head coach now, I definitely think it’s gone a lot farther than anyone expected us to go,” he said. Steiner credits Sharipov and his staff as the reason the team has been able to get adjusted to the new coaching changes, and said he believes they’ve been able to “move forward and progress a lot faster than (they) would usually be doing.” Although OSU fell 355.500-347.200 to No. 2 Penn State Saturday, Sharipov said his team’s performance was an improvement from how they competed against Michigan more than two weeks ago. He said against the Wolverines, the Buckeyes’ hit percentage was too low, and it’s always tough traveling to a place where it isn’t a secret that they’re not liked. “They’re going to do everything to make you be uncomfortable,” Sharipov said. Against Penn State, though, he said he was pleased with OSU’s 77 percent hit percentage, despite the loss. Sharipov said consistently improving the Buckeyes’ hit percentage, which measures the frequency an athlete successfully lands his routine, is going to be a key to their success down the stretch, and he wants to see it improve to 80-85 percent by the end of the season. And with a contest at Illinois looming Friday, that mindset remains the same. “Our plan is to beat them on execution and the hit percentage,” Sharipov said. “I watched their routines against Penn State a couple weeks ago and they also messed up a couple events. Everybody’s a human being; there’s always room for error.” Steiner said he thinks this season has said a lot about what kind of team the Buckeyes have. “We’re a hardworking team who’s out to prove everyone else wrong — everyone’s assumptions about Ohio State and where the gymnastics has gone,” he said. “I think we’re just proving people wrong, just making our point saying, ‘We’re here, don’t count us out.’” read more

Facebook works around Google contacts block UPDATED

first_imgFacebook does not share its data unless it wants to, but will happily take all the data it can get from other services. And it was doing so up until a few days ago from Google by pulling down contact information from the Google Contact API.Google didn’t like the fact it was giving but not receiving, so it blocked users from connecting Facebook and Gmail accounts. We all thought that was the end of it, but Facebook decided to retaliate and has found a workaround to continue getting the data.AdChoices广告A hack implemented by someone on Facebook’s dev team allows the social network to use a feature Google has released that allows users to download their data. Facebook is piggybacking that and extracting the data for itself.It’s being viewed as a very aggressive move by Facebook, and one that Google is sure to see as hostile. Don’t expect the search giant to sit still on this one folks.UPDATE: A Google spokesperson has now responded to the actions of Facebook by saying:We’re disappointed that Facebook didn’t invest their time in making it possible for their users to get their contacts out of Facebook.  As passionate believers that people should be able to control the data they create, we will continue to allow our users to export their Google contacts. Read more at TechCrunchMatthew’s OpinionThis strikes me as Facebook believing they are above working with Google and deciding to take what they want regardless. Google blocking the data on their service was a clear sign they didn’t want Facebook to take it without giving something back. Facebook’s response is basically saying “we don’t care, we’re taking your user data any way we can.”There’s some very clever people at Google, and I bet that the contacts data flow to Facebook won’t last much longer. The measures implemented next time won’t be so easy to circumvent and Facebook will face a complete cut off of data. In my opinion Facebook has given Google the perfect excuse to block them completely. If a service doesn’t want to share its data with you it’s their right to do so. If you then try and hack around the block you are opening yourself up to attack.The losers in this are the users who will now have a tougher time getting their contacts shared between the two services. The solution is for Facebook to start sharing its data with Google, but it doesn’t look as though Facebook are willing to back down on that front.last_img read more

Chine des morceaux de fusée se crashent sur un village du Sichuan

Mais à leur réveil le matin suivant, ils ont pu observer d’importants débris de métal jonchant le sol entre leurs habitations. Des images diffusées sur Internet par les villageois montrent ces morceaux de fusée, provenant de la seconde mission lunaire de la Chine. Personne n’a heureusement été blessé durant cet incident.D’importants débris métalliques se sont éparpillés dans l’atmosphère après que la fusée transportant la sonde lunaire Chang’e II a terminé sa course dans l’espace vendredi 1er octobre au soir. La fusée portant la sonde aurait manifesté des problèmes techniques dus à l’intense chaleur produite par la séparation de la sonde. La Chine avait lancé Chang’e II vendredi dernier, dans le cadre d’un programme spatial ambitieux qui vise à faire marcher un Chinois sur la Lune. La sonde avait été lancée à bord d’une fusée depuis le site de lancement situé dans la province chinoise du Sichuan.
