Google+ Pinterest Wrestleview Live #65: Reviewing and discussing WWE Clash of Champions from Charlotte Ric Flair signs deal with Adidas, Says “We’re fixin’ to make Nike the second brand” Wrestleview Weekly: Predictions for tonight’s Clash of Champions event in Charlotte On a recent episode of “The Ric Flair Show” on the MLW Radio Network, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair interviewed fellow Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels about Michaels’ career and their matches against one another.During the podcast, the conversation turned to Flair and Michaels’ match at WrestleMania 24 in 2008, which at the time was to be Flair’s retirement match. Flair notes that he now regrets wrestling after that match and going to TNA, where Flair worked from 2010 to 2012 and wrestled several matches for the company.Yes, I do [regret wrestling again after WrestleMania 24]. There [are] a couple of things I regret. Number one was ever going to work for TNA. That’s my own fault. It was just a lot of money to wrestle 65 days a year, right? 65 days and make a lot of money. Do you know what I mean? Not WWE money, but pretty good money to do nothing. And I made a lot of friends. I like Kurt Angle very much and I like [James] Storm and [Bobby] Roode. I liked AJ [Styles]. Everybody treated me great. I mean, I don’t have any bad things to say about TNA or the people there at all. After being in the WWE, it’s pretty hard to work any place else because you’re always comparing them no matter how hard you try not to.You can listen to this episode, as well as other episodes of “The Ric Flair Show” on the MLW Radio Network by going to MLWRadio.com.Source: Cagesideseats.com Jason Namako RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Facebook WhatsApp

Local road crews are preparing to take to the streets Monday morning, should the threat of snow hold true. The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the greater Vancouver area, beginning today and lasting through Thursday. A strong cold front will bring snow levels below 1,500 feet, with the greatest chance of snow in the lowlands expected Monday morning, according to the weather service. “We could get a little bit of snow that could make the morning commute a little dicey,” said Paul Tolleson, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.Both Vancouver and county public works officials are keeping a close eye on the forecast and making sure that everything runs smoothly should the weather result in slick road conditions. De-icing equipment has been mounted on Vancouver Public Works trucks, and crews will be prepared to hit the streets for a preemptive strike at 4 a.m. Monday, the city agency said.
Europe woke up to the news of Donald Trump being elected president of the United States on Nov. 9. The day was also the 27th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall; an irony that did not go unnoticed by many Europeans. Trump’s campaign pledge to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico had drawn harsh criticism.On Friday, Berlin Mayor Michael Müller became one of the most outspoken foreign critics of President Trump’s plans to build the wall. In a statement published on the city’s official website, Müller was quoted as saying: “We can simply not accept that all our historic experiences are being thrown into disarray by the ones we have to thank most for our freedom: the Americans. I call on the U.S. President to not go down this wrong track of isolation and exclusion.”American commitment to Berlin during the Cold War prevented the city from falling to East German control and eventually helped facilitate reunification following the fall of the Berlin Wall.President John F. Kennedy became an icon for Germans when he declared in 1963: “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner). In 1987, President Ronald Reagan famously addressed the Soviet Union leadership with the words: “Tear down this wall.”“For that reason I say: Dear Mr. President, don’t build this wall,” Müller said Friday in remarks which were directly addressed to Trump.
SMYRNA, Del. (AP) — Police breached a building at Delaware’s largest prison early Thursday, ending a nearly 24-hour hostage standoff that left one staffer dead.Inmates assumed control of the building at the James T. Vaughn Correction Center on Wednesday, taking four employees hostage. The inmates told a local newspaper that concerns about their treatment and the leadership of the United States had prompted their actions.Authorities did not immediately explain how the employee died. They said Delaware State Police entered the building about 5:05 a.m. Thursday and found the man unresponsive. He was pronounced dead about 25 minutes later.A second Department of Correction employee who had been held hostage was rescued. She is being examined at a hospital.The prison is in Smyrna, about 15 miles north of the state capital of Dover.Delaware Gov. John Carney said the priority now is to determine what happened and why.In a statement released Thursday, the new Democratic governor said officials will “hold accountable anyone who was responsible” for taking the hostages. He said officials will “make whatever changes are necessary to ensure nothing like it ever happens again.”Details of how the inmates managed to take over the building were not immediately clear. Robert Coupe, secretary of the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security, said authorities don’t know “the dynamics of the takeover” or whether inmates had been held against their will.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will use his first visit to the Middle East to call for unity in the fight against radicalism in the Muslim world, casting the challenge as a “battle between good and evil” and urging Arab leaders to “drive out the terrorists from your places of worship,” according to a draft of the speech obtained by The Associated Press.Abandoning some of the harsh anti-Muslim rhetoric of his presidential campaign, the draft of the speech, slated to be delivered in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, envisions new partnerships with America’s traditional allies in the Middle East. It notably refrains from mentioning democracy and human rights — topics Arab leaders often view as U.S. moralizing — in favor of the more limited goals of peace and stability.“We are not here to lecture — to tell other peoples how to live, what to do or who to be. We are here instead to offer partnership in building a better future for us all,” the document said.Trump left Washington Friday afternoon for Riyadh, the first stop on his maiden trip overseas trip as president. The marathon trip will also take him to Israel, the Vatican, Belgium and Italy. The trip is a key test of the president’s diplomatic skills and a chance to add substance to a foreign policy he has described broadly as “America First.”Two different sources provided the AP with copies of the draft of his remarks, billed as a marquee speech of the trip. One version, obtained late Thursday, included edits with comments from an administration official, indicating it was still a work in progress.
The controversial Human Services Facilities Siting ordinance may soon come to an end. After nearly two years of discussion, the Vancouver City Council could move forward with repealing the rule in May.The ordinance — which was implemented in 1991 — regulates where services such as soup kitchens and day centers are allowed. But the city is now concerned about potential legal implications of the rule thanks to a recent 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling that rejected the approach to siting service facilities.The city began reviewing the ordinance in July 2016. More specifically, the ruling raised concerns for city officials about the potential for discrimination based on physical abilities and familial status, both protected in the Fair Housing Act. As the population continues to grow and the demand for services grows along with it, the dispersal requirements — how close facilities are in proximity to each other — will lead to discrimination at some point in time, said Chief Assistant City Attorney Jonathan Young.“We’re going to have to make property unavailable,” Young said of the rule’s location restrictions during a council workshop Monday evening. The ordinance states services cannot be located within 1,320 feet of each other and transitional housing cannot be sited less than one mile from another similar facility. The city is running out of space to locate new services based on those distance requirements.The Planning Commission has spent the last several months discussing the issues at hand and considering what policy should replace the Human Services Facilities Siting ordinance. As it stands, the proposed approach repeals the ordinance entirely and amends existing code to allow service facilities to locate wherever a similar use is allowed.
Vicki Fitzsimmons recalled going to an open house held by Clark County in 2006 about infrastructure projects along Northeast Highway 99 between Northeast 99th and 117th streets. She recalled hearing some encouraging news about how the project called for more sidewalks along the corridor that’s particularly unfriendly to pedestrians.“I just thought, ‘It’s about time,’ ” she said.Since then, Fitzsimmons has kept the handout from the meeting that promised the highway “will become more pedestrian friendly” and set preliminary construction dates of winter 2011 and summer 2012 for the $2 million project.Twelve years later, the county has made some pedestrian-oriented improvements along the stretch. But Fitzsimmons said the corridor remains dangerous for pedestrians. She said she’s frustrated by the lack of progress, particularly as she’s watched other county projects move forward.“I just kind of feel like I’m banging my head against the wall,” she said.Fitzsimmons, who serves as president of the Sherwood Hills Neighborhood Association, said that having pedestrian-friendly infrastructure is a quality-of-life issue. She said that for some more vulnerable residents, it’s an issue of basic safety.She said there is a trailer park as well as apartments that house low-income individuals along the corridor. She said that many of their residents don’t have cars. Fitzsimmons also said they have no choice but to make their way to the store or bus stops along the busy highway using bike lanes or deteriorating patches of pavement. She said that sometimes she sees people in wheelchairs or pushing baby carriages.
By Amie SillahA peasant family of two girls and a son, they occupy a family farm and a village house neither rich nor poor but have enough to eat when their field is harvested. Pa Bangaly has an industrious wife Naa Jumpfolo and their three children the first daughter, Jaha, first child (taw) 19, Jonsaba, second 13 and only surviving son, Jewru, 10 years, after they lost 4 boys in infancy. He is a jewel in the eyes of his parents who spoil him ‘pata-pata’ especially his father. He works less but is given more and the best chunk of the food ration. “I want the best for my son who will continue my lineage,” Pa Bangaly posited. “What about our daughters? Are they not precious?” “Yes they are only precious when we fatten them and sold to best suitors who will pay money to educate my son, these girls are being prepared for men to take them home to build their families and I’ll never marry my girls to poor suitors,” Pa Bangaly posited.Jaha She is easy going and calm very submissive and not an academic stuff. Naa Jonsi is preparing her for marriage. As a ‘taaw’ she takes responsibility of her siblings when Naa is away.Jonsaba She is the tigress of the family a right fighter and very academic; “I want to be a pediatrician to save the life of children. Naa Jumpfi lost 4 sons, how is that possible? No wonder Jewru becomes the family eye and precious stone, do I blame them?”Pa Bangaly He is a hard working peasant living under harsh backward conditions. The family has no help from any quarters working with crude back breaking tools, cannot afford expensive fertilizer therefore can only apply it scantly. The family struggle with herbs when they are sick because they cannot afford expensive drugs, the nearest health facility can only afford pain killers and that is when you are lucky to find any. Life is very difficult in the countryside. But his small size and hardworking family is an asset and sometimes he enjoys bumper harvest and he plants water melon which fetch him cash to pay his children fees. Jewru is special. “Everything for my son whom I’ll educate and spend my last butut I want him to pull the family out of poverty,” he soliloquised.Naa Jumpfolo She is an African woman par excellence all encompassing, everyone is her child and she feeds them when they come to her abode. She is energetic and hardworking never tired as she is always bogged by the household drudgery; every household chore is manually done assisted by the girls. Jewru is exempted from any chores but she insisted that he fetches firewood which he does reluctantly.Jewru The only surviving male child, he is spoilt ‘pata-pata’, lazy and always dodging household work when he is able to but Naa Jumpfi insists for Jews to do household chores to the displeasure of Baa Bangaly. “You hope to travel how will you cope if none of us are around?” “I’ll hire house help.” “With which money? What are you going to save even if the money is available? Wake up boy and smell the coffee. Your father is deceiving you.”At the Farm The kids are happy working at the farm especially when it is time to return back to the village which means going back to school and meeting old friends.Baa Bangaly He assembled his household and announced to them; “We are returning back to our village, we all missed our old dry season house; harvest time we will come back and harvest our crops. Good bye farm house we will be back!” The kids are very excited jumping and singing.Naa Jumpfi She stayed and prepared a delicious chicken findi and ‘domoda’ (groundnut soup) for the family. The family came back to the farm house and enjoyed their meal. “Naa prepared the meal to treat all of us for a work well done. Eat and enjoy yourself.” Baa posited. He later called his son and gave him more meat and soup. “But the girls work harder why did you give him more meat and soup?” “He is a boy with huge appetite; it is fine the one to continue my lineage.”Long walk to the village The farm hut is a bit far from the village and the family has to trek it; the kids are very tired, Baa carry Jewru all the way through. Jonsi protested; “I am very tired I cannot walk again.” Naa slowed down and carried her.At the Village The family arrived tired the parents asked for water as they drank Jonsi left them and headed to an old text book scattered on the ground. She held it and kissed the book all eyes focused at her. Parents shook their head and Jonsi fixed her eyes on them.Jonsaba She is nostalgic and very sad as she protested and confronted her mom as she refused to eat her food. “I want to go back to school I am not going back to that god forsaken farm house, I want to stay in the village and go back to school.” She sobbed. She is 15 years and in secondary school. “Eat your food are you going to starve yourself? I’ll talk to your dad, just eat your food.” She urged.Jumpfolo She spoke to her husband and tried to reason with him. “Baa! Jonsi said she wants to go back to school and I support her. We can support all our children to school.” Baa rebuked her; “Naa! What are you saying? You know we cannot afford to send all our children and I cannot compromise on my son’s education, the girls will marry and Jonsi’ rich husband will send her to school I hope.” Naa wanted to speak further but he shut her up. “Do you want me to eat your food or do you want me to go on fasting?” “I’m sorry eat your food.” Jonsi heard them arguing and she rushed out into the dark. “Go after your naughty child before wild animals eat her up!” Naa ran after her and calling her to come back.To be Cont.
Fabio Capello has ruled himself out of the running for the Italy vacancy by announcing his retirement from football managementThe Italian was recently dismissed by Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning in March and had been touted as one of the leading candidates for the vacancy as the new manager of the Italian national team.But Capello, who has managed the likes of AC Milan, Roma and Real Madrid in his 36 year managerial career, has now ruled himself out and announced his retirement.“I’ve already had the experiences of managing England and Russia national teams,” said the 71 year-old, according to Sky Sports.“I wanted to train a club team again and being in charge of Jiangsu was my last football experience.“I did everything I wanted, I’m very happy with what I did and now I’m delighted to be a commentator – you always win in this role.”Following the dissmissal of Gian Piero Ventura, Italy have been actively pursuing their options with former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini being Capello’s preferred option.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“Roberto is a coach of experience who has traveled the world.” said the former England coach.“His experience will help him build relations with the players, but the national team lack talent.“We are good coaches when we have good players.“It is difficult to do well with mediocre players. At the moment Italian football is missing great players that can make the difference, there are no leaders.“In Serie A there is little quality. You learn from the best but if the best are bought by the strongest foreign clubs, Italian football doesn’t have good teachers, good players from whom to learn.”
Loris Karius’ proposed transfer from Liverpool to Besiktas has reportedly been delayed by an unusual reasonThe two clubs are understood to have settled on a £9.5m fee for the under-fire goalkeeper on Monday, which saw Karius being withdrawn from the Liverpool team that defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 that same evening.But confirmation of the deal has not yet arrived.The Liverpool Echo reports that the delay is down to a four-day national public holiday in Turkey.The holiday is called the “Feast of Sacrifice” and is supposed to be the most important Islamic religious festival of the year.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.But Karius could still complete his move to Besiktas later today with the German set to undergo a medical in Istanbul.The Turkish giants will initially sign him for a two-year loan deal, which will cost them £2.25m.By 2020, Besiktas will then have to pay Liverpool a further £7.25m to buy Karius – if he meets the performance criteria and makes the required number of appearances, as well as the club qualifying for Europe.Liverpool will also have a 20% sell-on clause included as part of the deal.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Feb 2015 – The Hon Dr. Rosita Butterfield is laid to rest now, the country’s first woman elected to parliament on the PNP ticket for the constituency of Kew in North Caicos. She was and is a woman who many now know grew through education and politics and business and philanthropic endeavors to be considered a wealthy Turks and Caicos Islander. Current House Speaker, Hon Robert Hall reminded us at the State Funeral last week that it was not always the case; Rosie came from very humble beginnings. “Even after she was married, you may have heard the son speak about coming to Turks and Caicos, living in a trailer – a number of them – and living in a one bedroom. So when one looks at the vast empire they have today, some people think it was always that way, but with their sweat, blood, tears, dedication they really achieved great heights.”Dr. Rosita Butterfield was 78 years old when died on January 10, 2015.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, August 11, 2017 – Nassau – Tourism and Aviation Minister, Dionisio D’Aguilar says he is trying to save $1m a year at the ministry with the layoff of mainly recently recruited staff. The Minister said 22 people were hired within weeks leading up to the General Elections and that the new hires would cost the country some $750,000 in salaries.Speaking to media about the layoffs, Minister #D’Aguilar explained, “… we are mindful of the fact that people need jobs but we also must be mindful of the fact that the core mission of the Ministry of Tourism is to grow the overall visitor count or the total number of stopover visitors to our country and therefore they bring significant spend to the country and create economic opportunities. You don’t grow employment by the government hiring more people, you want the private sector to grow and thereby hire more people, that’s the route you need to take.”It was reported that last week 11 people in Grand Bahama were made redundant and that in July 12 people were recalled to Nassau as Tourism combined its Washington, DC and Los Angeles offices with New York and Houston. The minister accused the Christie Administration of gross spending just before the election and shared, that there were 260 employees when former Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe assumed office in 2012, five years later the staff ballooned by 155% to 403 people.#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#D’Aguilar, #magneticmedianews
