Join NWS to measure percipitation for research

admin No Comments

first_imgStatewide—The National Weather Service needs your help.  They rely on volunteer weather observers that take precipitation readings in their own backyards.  Maybe observers are needed because precipitation is highly variable. CoCoRaHS (pronounced KO-ko-rozz) is a grassroots volunteer network of backyard weather observers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail, and snow) in their local communities. By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, the aim is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education, and research applications. The only requirements to join are an enthusiasm for watching and reporting weather conditions and a desire to learn more about how weather can affect and impact our lives.To learn more or to become a community collaborative rain, hail, and snow network observer, visit the website by clicking here.  Online training webinars will be held tonight from 7-8 pm (click here for webinar link) and Wednesday, March 18 from 7-8 pm (click here for webinar link).last_img read more

Eva Carneiro takes FA to task over Mourinho investigation

admin No Comments

first_img Press Association The Football Association’s handling of Jose Mourinho’s disciplinary case involving Eva Carneiro has come under fire from the former Chelsea team doctor herself. Carneiro broke her silence to insist the FA had never requested she make a statement and effectively ignored some evidence in its investigation into alleged remarks made to her by Mourinho. She also said the FA did not ask her for a statement after being the victim of sexist abuse at West Ham last season and criticised the lack of support from the football authorities. center_img Carneiro was dropped from first-team duties after Chelsea manager Mourinho criticised her for going onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard during the opening match of the season against Swansea. She has since parted company with the club, while this week Mourinho was cleared by the FA of making discriminatory remarks. In a statement to Press Association Sport, Carneiro said: “I was surprised to learn that the FA was allegedly investigating the incident of 8th of August via the press. I was at no stage requested by the FA to make a statement. “I wonder whether this might be the only formal investigation in this country where the evidence of the individuals involved in the incident was not considered relevant. Choosing to ignore some of the evidence will surely influence the outcome of the findings.” The FA said it had contacted Carneiro’s lawyers, who had an opportunity to make a statement. It is understood that had a formal request been made she would have done so but she was still formally employed by Chelsea at the time. Carneiro’s statement added: “Last season I had a similar experience at a game at West Ham FC, where I was subject to verbal abuse. Following complaints by the public, the FA produced a communication to the press saying there had been no sexist chanting during this game. At no time was I approached for a statement despite the fact that vile, unacceptable, sexually explicit abuse was clearly heard. “It is incidents such as these and the lack of support from the football authorities that make it so difficult for women in the game.” The FA’s independent board member Heather Rabbatts has criticised the organisation for not interviewing Carneiro herself. Mourinho was asked about the Carneiro case three times at his weekly press conference but refused to comment on the controversy. The FA said in response to Carneiro’s statement: “We have never received any information or complaint from Dr Carneiro. “Including in written correspondence with her lawyers, it has been made explicitly clear that if Dr Carneiro had evidence to provide or wished to make a complaint she was more than welcome to do so. That route remains open.” last_img read more

Ringo’s Rambles: I am a free agent – RT’s appreciated

admin No Comments

first_imgLeague of Legends is the most watched esport in the world. It has a huge player base and recently packed out a stadium in Beijing as SK Telecom T1 were dethroned by SSG. The North American side of the esport has just welcomed in the Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets and the Cleveland Cavaliers to the new franchised league system. Disclaimer: With Editor Sam away on holiday, I have now been left in charge of the site and as a result have decided to launch a brand new feature – Ringo’s Rambles. This will be a weekly column that will likely run until Sam returns and he decides to pull the plug on it due to it having little to no relevance and being a few hundred words of utter tripe written by yours truly. The inaugural Ringo’s Rambles will be around the classic League of Legends free agency “RT’s appreciated” that seem to continue to pop-up each and every time.  Esports elsewhere has seen the Dallas Cowboys come along and nab compLexity, and hundreds of sports clubs have come in to grab a proverbial slice of the ever growing esports pie. It’s serious business now.So why do we have players who have competed at the World Championships – the top competition for any League of Legends player – tweeting they’re a free agent and asking for retweets?I don’t know if it’s a meme or if these folk genuinely do it for a reason, but surely, just surely, the likes of the Houston Rockets aren’t browsing Twitter and hoping they notice a player is a free agent from my mate Jimmy’s retweet? One would assume enquiries are made far in advance as to a player’s availability, and those scouting players will have a list of targets should they become available.Upon rigorous, timely investigation of this lovely chaps followers, the eight of them are a mixture of what one would assume friends and bot accounts. I’m not wholly sure what value Flame obtained from having his plea for a new team heard by these eight people – but hey, that seems to be the way we operate now.Maybe I am simply overestimating how teams work in a $10,000,000 franchise league or am I just completely missing the point? This still seems fabulously amusing to me.Now all I am waiting for is Faker to turn up in a Range Rover outside Longhzu’s office trying to force a deadline day move just like Peter Odemwingie famously did a few years back in the Premier League. That or I’d love to see Grant from Splyce sitting with his head out his motor proclaiming he’s a “wheeler dealer” as he makes a last minute signing. I’m not sure either of these will happen in the near future – but I still can’t quite understand this “RT’s appreciated” malarky. Perhaps it’s just me.last_img read more

Former WWE and ECW star Tommy Dreamer admits he considered murdering Paul Heyman and commiting suicide at WrestleMania 17

admin No Comments

first_img“When ECW went out of business I was 29 years old,” Dreamer said on his podcast. “I had a lot of my money, my parents’ money, trying to float the company. Paul Heyman, who I thought me and him were super tight, he screwed me over big time. He was in the WWE, the whole time. I had turned down hundreds of thousands of dollars to go to WCW. And now was unemployed. I went from a $750,000 offer, and Paul Heyman crying to me, that if I leave ECW, it will go out of business. Meanwhile, he was getting a paycheck from WWE. I don’t begrudge him, but then I did. I was depressed as depressed can be. I had women, I had fame, I had everything, and yet it was the worst time of my life. It really was. I was doing indies, making decent money on the indies. But I lived at home.”Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearThings appeared to be looking up for the “Hardcore Legend”, as he was told by Heyman that he would be initially debuting in WWE at Wrestlemania 17 in April 2001 at the Astrodome in Houston and interfering in the triangle ladder match between The Dudley Boyz, The Hardy Boys and Edge and Christian. As things often happen in wrestling, plans changed and Dreamer would no longer be appearing on pro wrestling’s biggest annual event. Being removed from the show sent Dreamer spiraling and had him consider entering the Astrodome during WrestleMania, making his way to Heyman, who was announcing the show with Jim Ross, inflicting harm to his former boss and then turning it around on himself. “I remember I did a show there, and I saw a sign that said, ‘Guns Welcome,’ and I was in Houston,” Dreamer said. “I did an indie show, and I said, ‘What is this?’ I’m from New York, what do you mean, ‘guns welcome?’ and they said, ‘Oh you are allowed to bring a firearm into the venue.’ I was across the street from the Astrodome. When I tell you it resonated in my head so, so much.“That I’ll tell you what I wanted to do. It’s sick that I think this. At Wrestlemania, I was gonna hop the rail, and I was gonna whack Paul E. in the back of the head right at the announce table, then I was gonna whack myself. The ultimate martyr, I was gonna hit my pose crack, boom, pull the trigger. Because I was that insane. Don’t know if I would have went through with it, but that’s what I was thinking about every day. I was like, ‘I will go down in history.’ Pop, boom. First, they’d think it as an angle until I shot him. I was so severely depressed and so mental with rage, I needed help.”Luckily, Dreamer didn’t do the unthinkable and help was on its way from Hall of Famer announcer and the person at the time who was the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, Jim Ross. Because of one phone call, the violent thoughts Dreamer had faded away. Instead, he bided his time and went on to make his debut in the company in July 2001 as part of the WCW/ECW Alliance.”That help came from a phone call from Jim Ross,” Dreamer said. “Randomly I get a phone call from a number I didn’t know… I didn’t pick up, and I remember having these thoughts, and it was bad. I had a gun; I was psssh man. Could you think about the horribleness that I would have done for my legacy? I would have ruined Wrestlemania, which I love Wrestlemania. For everybody. These thoughts were so so crazed in my head. “I’m glad I didn’t do it. But when that phone call came from Jim Ross. Again, just said leave a message. It said “Hey Tommy, it’s Jim Ross, just want to let you know, we are still thinking about you, we are gonna get it done, just got to hang tight. Thank you. Think of how stupid I would have been, how dumb and how messed up my thoughts would have been if they would have come to fruition. I am so happy I didn’t do it, I am so happy that I did get that phone call, from someone who was a stranger, I barely knew the guy.” Depression is a more significant issue than people can comprehend and in turn, cause one to do unimaginable things.Former ECW heavyweight champion and WWE star Tommy Dreamer took to his House of Hardcore podcast and revealed that when ECW officially went of business in March 2001, he battled through a severe bout of depression. last_img read more

The law allows Madrid to sign Camavinga at 17 years old

admin No Comments

first_img2. The following three exceptions are allowed:b) The transfer is made within the territory of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) and the player is between 16 and 18 years of age. The new club must meet the following minimum obligations:i. Provide the player with adequate football training or training that corresponds to the best national standards. There is another fact that is decisive for Camavinga to be a good option for Madrid. Last November he obtained French nationality. Of Angolan origin, the midfielder arrived in the neighboring country at the age of six, accompanied by his parents. Now, not only can be summoned by Deschamps for the absolute team (he has already played a game with the U21), but also he would not occupy an extra-community position in a squad, that of Real Madrid, loaded with them: now Vinicius, Reinier, Rodrygo, Militao, Kubo … ii. In addition to football training or training, guarantee the player academic or school training, or training or education and training according to their vocation, that allows them to start a non-football career in the event that they cease their professional player activity.iii. Take all necessary measures to ensure that the player is assisted in the best possible way (optimal living conditions in a family or in club accommodation, provision of a tutor in the club, etc.).center_img The FIFA Players Transfer Statute, the standard by which all international football must be governed, allows Real Madrid to sign Camavinga before he turns 18 (in the next month of November). For this reason, for example, Rainier, Vinicius and Rodrygo were unable to complete their transfer until they reached that age. This statute, in section IV (Transfer of minor players) it is limited to the prohibition of the international transfer of minors under 18 years of age. But it establishes several caveats. One favors Madrid in the case of Camavinga.last_img read more
