Texas Football 4-Star Has Decided To Retire

(Photo by Ron Jenkins/Getty Images)It’s a sad reality that not every player who gets into a major college program will be able to finish their playing career on their feet. For Texas offensive lineman Patrick Hudson, that truth has become all too real.In a media interview on Monday, Texas football head coach Tom Herman revealed that Hudson has decided to retire ahead of his junior year. Herman explained that injuries and surgeries contributed to the decision. He also added that he would remain with the team even though he will no longer play.The 6-foot-5 Hudson was a four-star prospect when he was recruited in 2016. Per 247Sports, he was the No. 50 overall prospect in the country, the No. 2 offensive guard in the country, and the No. 7 prospect from the state of Texas.Tom Herman tells the media after the opening of spring drills that OL Patrick Hudson has decided to retire from football following handful of injuries/surgeries. Hudson will remain in the program despite no longer playing. #HookEm pic.twitter.com/evWPJExw1F— Clif Thornton (@ClifOnFOX7) March 11, 2019Hudson redshirted in 2016 before making his debut for the Longhorns in 2017. He appeared in only two games before suffering a season-ending injury.The 2018 season seemed poised to be a breakout year for Hudson, but an early-season trip to the hospital ultimately ended his season before it began.Back in September 2018, Hudson had to be hospitalized and taken to the intensive care unit after collapsing in practice. He had suffered heat cramps while practicing in 95-degree weather.Hudson did not play a game in 2018, and it was widely believed that 2019 would require a major decision from him.last_img read more

Drake got friendzoned hard after declaring his love for Rihanna at MTV

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With: Rumours have circulated for more than a year that there’s more than theatrics behind the steamy duets between Rihanna and Drake. And things got ratcheted up a notch the weekend of the MTV Video Music Awards when Drizzy went above and beyond — as he would — by placing a billboard ad on behalf of himself and OVO placed high in Los Angeles congratulating Rihanna on her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award (which has previously been awarded to Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and David Bowie).Rihanna certainly seemed to approve when she shared it herself on Instagram, but if there were ever a clear friendzoning, it happened on the MTV stage Sunday night, for the entire world to see.

US automakers post first monthly sales gain of year in Sept

first_imgDETROIT – The auto industry posted its first monthly sales gain of the year in September, led by strong truck and SUV sales and the replacement of cars destroyed by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.U.S. sales rose 6.1 per cent to just over 1.5 million vehicles, according to Autodata Corp., as Toyota, Honda, Ford, General Motors, Nissan and Volkswagen all posted strong numbers. Of major automakers, only Fiat Chrysler and Hyundai reported sales declines.Industry analysts predicted that positive sales would continue through the end of the year fueled by customers whose cars were destroyed by Harvey and Hurricane Irma in Florida. But sales aren’t expected to be strong enough to match last year’s record of more than 17.5 million.Christopher Hopson, manager of light-vehicle forecasting for IHS Markit, said September had a perfect mix of hurricane replacement demand, high incentives, rising fleet sales and strong sales of outgoing 2017 models.“While this strong level of demand isn’t expected to be sustained throughout the fourth quarter, these short-term supports are not likely to drop off in a meaningful way, setting the stage for strong Q4 results,” Hopson said in a statement.GM reported on Tuesday that sales rose 11.9 per cent from a year ago, while Ford sales rose 8.7 per cent. Toyota posted a 14.9 per cent increase, while Nissan sales were up 9.5 per cent and Honda sales rose 6.8 per cent. Volkswagen said its sales rose 33.2 per cent over numbers that were depressed a year ago by its diesel emissions cheating scandal.Fiat Chrysler sales fell 10 per cent and Hyundai, which relies on cars for much of its results rather than SUVs and trucks, saw sales fall 14.4 per cent. Both blamed reductions in sales to big fleet buyers such as rental car companies.Industry analysts had predicted a small sales rise for the month, with the Edmunds.com auto site expecting a 0.4 per cent increase. But automakers, aided by hurricane sales, powered past the forecasts.For the first nine months of the year, overall industry sales were down 1.8 per cent. September sales would have been even higher without Hurricane Irma, which forced many Florida dealerships to close for a week or longer due to lack of electric power.Ford gained 5,000 to 6,000 sales from replacement of flooded cars in the Houston area, where it offered employee pricing. But it lost about 1,000 vehicle sales in Florida due to closed dealerships, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Mark LaNeve said on a conference call. He expects industry sales to get a boost through the rest of the year from cars being replaced due to hurricane damage.Strong pickup truck and SUV sales once again propelled the September increase.Ford’s F-Series pickup sales rose 21 per cent from a year ago, while SUV sales were up 8.8 per cent. Inventory levels dropped to a 72-day supply, and LaNeve said Ford may even increase production to raise that a little. Automakers have been trimming production, especially of cars, for much of the year.Even car sales, which have been battered during the past few years as buyers switched to SUVs and trucks, showed a bit of life. For instance, Toyota’s midsize Camry, once the top-selling car in the U.S., posted a 13 per cent sales gain as all-new 2018 models reached showrooms. Honda’s Accord, once the No. 2-selling car, saw a 9.5 per cent increase.Still, Edmunds predicted that midsize cars would drop to the fifth-largest segment so far this year with just 10.7 per cent of the market, the lowest share recorded since Edmunds began tracking numbers in 1991. Midsize cars were the top-selling segment in the U.S. just three years ago, but have been passed by compact SUVs, large trucks, midsize SUVs and even compact cars, Edmunds said.last_img read more

Modi govt a sinking ship Maya

first_imgLucknow: BSP chief Mayawati on Tuesday called the Narendra Modi government a sinking ship which even its ideologue RSS is deserting and said the country now needed a real prime minister, not a chaiwala or a chowkidar .She also attacked the fashion among politicians of visiting temples during the poll campaign and said the Election Commission should take note. Narendra Modi government boat is sinking, and everyone knows this, she said at a press conference here. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThe biggest example of this is that the RSS is also deserting them, she said, claiming that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh workers are missing from the Bharatiya Janata Party campaign. I cannot spot them anywhere in the election doing hard work with their ‘jholaas’ (bags), thanks to the non-fulfilment of promises and the intense resentment by the people, Mayawati said. As a result of this, Modi is sweating, she claimed. The BSP supremo said the country will not be fooled by “dual personalities” any more. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad”The country has already seen a number of leaders in the form of sevak (servant), mukhya sevak (chief servant), chaiwala (tea vendor) and chowkidar (watchman), who indulge in misleading the people, she said, referring to labels attached to Modi. But the country now needs a real prime minister who can run it in accordance with the spirit of welfare in the Constitution, she said. The public has already been fooled by people of dual character, and will not be fooled anymore,” she told reporters. Mayawati took exception to political leaders visiting temples during the period they are banned from campaigning by the Election Commission. “If someone is banned from campaigning for violating the model code of conduct and he visits public places and temples to take part in prayers, and it is publicised in a big way by the media, then it should also be banned,’ she said. “The Election Commission needs to take some steps in this direction as well and ban it,” she said. Mayawati appeared to be referring to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minster Yogi Adityanath’s visits to temples during the period he was banned from electioneering over the “Ali-Bajrang Bali” comment he made at a rally. She demanded the EC should include the money spent on roadshows and temple visits in the election expenditure by the party. Earlier, in an election rally along with BSP chief Mayawati, former chief minister and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav said the alliance would get massive support all over. “A change will be brought in the politics. Even the foundation of the BJP will not be visible because of the alliance storm that is sweeping the state,” Yadav said. “The ‘josh’ (energy) is absent in the BJP rallies…. Perhaps those who raised the slogans have gone in search of good days.” The SP chief said the BJP might have failed to make the country clean under the Swachh Bharat scheme, but he claimed that the people had cleansed the state of the saffron party.last_img read more

Breach at Texas tank farm causes chemical spill

HOUSTON — Potentially hazardous chemicals spilled Friday at a Houston-area petrochemical tank farm where a dayslong fire damaged several tanks, the company that operates the farm said.The breach occurred before 12:30 p.m. in a containment dike near a damaged tank that crews were trying to drain of flammable product that includes benzene, said Dale Samuelsen, a spokesman for Intercontinental Terminals Company. An estimated 20,000 barrels of liquid were in the tank, which was one of several to catch on fire.Samuelsen said the company asked its neighbours, including other industrial sites and the nearby San Jacinto Texas State Historic Site, to shelter in place. He said the company was trying to find out what chemicals were in the dike that breached.The tanks on site contain components of gasoline and materials used in nail polish remover, glues and paint thinner.Authorities had not asked residents in surrounding Deer Park to shelter in place early Friday afternoon. People living near the plant in Deer Park were told Thursday to remain indoors after air monitors detected elevated levels of benzene. The order was lifted later Thursday.Adam Adams of the Environmental Protection Agency said authorities believe the other tanks that burned on site were stable.The fire began Sunday and was extinguished Wednesday. It caused a giant plume of black smoke that billowed over much of Houston.Area schools cancelled classes as tests on Thursday indicated higher-than-normal levels of benzene in the air. Benzene is a highly flammable liquid found naturally in gasoline and crude oil. It evaporates quickly and can cause drowsiness, dizziness, and headaches.Adams said air tests by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the company had not shown any positive results for high levels of benzene Friday. One positive test after 4 a.m. from a sensor operated by Harris County was verified to be a false alarm, a county spokeswoman said.The Associated Press read more

Security Council backs committees help to countries in antiterror fight

In a statement read out in an open session by the Council President for July, Ambassador Mihnea Ioan Motoc of Romania, the 15-member body also welcomed preparations for the first visit by the CTC to a Member State in implementation of resolution 1373, the landmark text adopted in the wake of the 11 September 2001 attacks against the United States which set up the Committee.Officials told the UN News Service that initial preparations are in discussion but no decision has yet been made on which country will be the first visited by the group.The Council also invited the CTC focus in the next three months on practical measures to implement resolution 1535, as well as to “accelerate its work on country assessments of assistance needs that can be shared with interested donor States and organizations,” said Ambassador Mihnea Ioan Motoc of Romania.Resolution 1535, adopted in March, restructured the Committee to include a Counter Terrorism Executive Directorate, enabling the panel to be more agile and efficient as it helps countries comply with resolution 1373. That text compels countries to report regularly on their efforts to combat terrorism, and the Council noted today that as of the end of June, 71 States still had not met the deadline to submit the required reports.The Council’s statement followed a briefing by the CTC Chairman, Ambassador Alexander Konuzin of the Russian Federation, who noted that the panel’s work had prompted more countries to join anti-terrorism treaties “thereby making an important contribution to strengthening the international legal basis for the fight against terrorism.”The CTC has also continued work on the Directory of Counter-Terrorism Information and Sources of Assistance, he said, while acknowledging the limitations of this effort. “The Directory alone cannot properly meet the new requirements,” he said, pledging more direct work with Member States.He also called attention to the problem of inadequate general understanding of the CTC’s work. “This lack of public awareness of the activity of the CTC may have led to some misperceptions of the Committee’s work, adding to the problems of communication and practical cooperation with Member States,” he said. In response, he said, the CTC would “continue its efforts to improve its communication methods.” Video of Security Council meeting [2hrs 35mins] read more

Liechtenstein manhunt seeks suspect in fatal shooting of CEO of Bank Frick

by John Heilprin, The Associated Press Posted Apr 7, 2014 3:06 pm MDT GENEVA – Police in Liechtenstein launched a manhunt Monday for a former fund manager suspected of shooting to death a 48-year-old CEO in a bank’s underground parking garage.The police said in a statement that the suspected shooter, Juergen Hermann of Liechtenstein, had fled the scene in the village of Balzers in a white-and-grey Smart car.Swiss broadcaster SRF identified the victim as Juergen Frick, the chief executive officer of Bank Frick, based in Balzers.The police said Hermann’s passport and driver’s license were found near the Rhine River and inside the passport were “handwritten notes confessing to the crime” including a farewell that indicated he may have committed suicide.On his website, Hermann calls himself Liechtenstein’s “Robin Hood.”The newspaper Liechtensteiner Vaterland reported that the police believed Hermann may have drowned himself in the river and Liechtenstein’s water rescue were searching a dam.But the newspaper said police told a news conference in Vaduz that it could take days or even weeks before the search would be completed, and the alleged murder weapon, a 9-millimeter pistol, also remained missing.A video surveillance camera in the parking garage of Bank Frick allegedly showed Hermann killing Frick with three shots, the newspaper reported, which followed a past series of well-known threats and insults that Hermann levelled against the bank executive.

Des crash interstellaires éjectent les planètes loin de leur étoile

first_imgDes crash interstellaires éjectent les planètes loin de leur étoileUne nouvelle simulation a montré que les collisions entre les systèmes planétaires entraînaient l’éjection massive de planètes de la taille de la Terre et également capables d’abriter la vie.Selon une nouvelle étude germano-anglaise, les collisions entre systèmes planétaires provoquent l’éjection massive de planètes du gabarit de la Terre. Car si les planètes de notre système tournent de façon stable autour du Soleil dans le même sens de rotation que celui-ci et sur le même plan, cela ne se déroule pas partout de la même manière, révèle le site de Ciel et espace.En effet, les scientifiques de l’université de Bonn, emmenés par Ingo Thies et Pavel Kroupa, ont réussi à établir un modèle de formation qui permettrait d’expliquer comment fonctionnent ces autres systèmes. Si au début tout se déroule normalement, le nuage de gaz présent finit par s’effondrer sur lui-même, faisant briller l’étoile, alors qu’un disque géant de matière se met en orbite autour d’elle. Sauf que ce nuage de gaz est rarement seul, il n’est qu’un composant d’un amas et la même scène se joue juste à côté de celle qui vient d’être décrite. C’est à ce moment-là que les deux formations vont entrer en collision, ce qui se révèle en fait, être extrêmement fréquent. L’apport de matière d’un système dans un autre serait alors colossal, estimé à 30 fois la masse de Jupiter. Le système solaire, un rescapé de la Voie lactéeÀ lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAS’en suit une série de modification de l’organisation stellaire qui va fortement perturber les orbites déjà en place. Les planètes passent alors sur un plan fortement incliné, adoptant une orbite elliptique et même, dans certains cas, rétrograde. Quant aux plus petites planètes, de la taille de la Terre, elles sont purement et simplement éjectées. Loin de toute étoile, elles refroidiraient ainsi lentement pour se fondre dans la nuit noire du cosmos, où elles erreraient lugubrement pour l’éternité, rapporte Cieletespace.fr avec mélancolie.Vu sous cet angle le système solaire fait donc figure d’exception, selon le site qui précise que nous serions une véritable rareté dans la Voie Lactée. Par ailleurs, ce phénomène d’éjection ne serait pas non plus une bonne nouvelle quant à la recherche de vie extraterrestre : ainsi éloignées et privées de leur étoile, les planètes ne seraient probablement plus assez accueillantes pour abriter la vie.

Federal judge stings Woodland police officer

first_imgLONGVIEW — A federal judge has awarded both sides some victories in a lawsuit in which a former Woodland woman alleges an abuse of police power by the Woodland Police Department and two officers.But in a ruling handed down last month, U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton had some stern things to say about now-retired Woodland officer Brad Gillaspie.Leighton wrote that there is strong evidence indicating Gillaspie stalked and threatened Jody Petersen, caused her to lose her job, spread lies about her parenting ability, interfered with her child custody proceedings, interfered with her attempt to divorce her husband and tarnished her reputation in the community.“By stalking Petersen’s home, threatening her, belatedly initiating an investigation that resulted in her losing her job … and tarnishing her reputation in the community, Gillaspie egregiously influenced and interfered with Petersen’s divorce and child custody proceedings. A reasonable jury could find he was motivated by malice and a perverse sense of friendship, not by some ethical sense of duty,” Leighton wrote.Gillaspie, officer Brent Murray and the city of Woodland had asked Leighton to dismiss Petersen’s suit, filed Sept. 25, 2016, in U.S. District Court in Tacoma. Leighton tossed out the cases against the city and Murray, saying there was no evidence that they had engaged in or encouraged any systematic or unfair treatment or violation of Petersen’s rights. But the judge sustained Petersen’s complaints against Gillaspie, meaning they will now go to trial or lead to a negotiated settlement.last_img read more
