OVERTIME 9-25-13

first_img:10 First things first. A fond farewell to another “Bad Man.” Former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Ken Norton, one of only three men to beat the baddest of them all, the great Muhammad Ali. Norton passed away at the too young age of 70 from complications from a stroke he suffered last year.:09 I told ya, I told ya, I told ya. Nothing good can come from losing. Be it pre-season or regular season. Even the Penguins admit to it, although they don’t seem to be doing anything about it. Chuck “The Emperor” Noll said it best when asked how he felt about pre-season games. “If they weren’t important, we wouldn’t play them.” Coach Tomlin, you should buy into that. I’m just sayin!!:08 And speaking of back-ups… no, I wasn’t, but I was thinking about it. Got-cha! Anyway, you know that whole next man up thing? Well, it means just that. The worst man on the worst team in the NFL is better than 95 percent of the rest of the world at what they do. The next man up should not be a huge drop-off. If he is, it’s bad drafting.:07 Please go see “The Butler.” The movie should be a must-see for all Black folks and must, must, must see for all White folks. Yep, it’s that good! I told you I gave it 5 basketballs.:06 Heath Miller is due back this week and Le’Veon Bell is right behind him. I agree with Coach Tomlin that he doesn’t expect them to have an “S” on their chest and a red cape, but pulling up to the stadium as the “dynamic duo” in the batmobile would be great!:05 The Pirates are in. I told you not to worry. It’s just a matter now as how, division winners or one game playoff and out. I am just sayin’.:04 No, the Lakers won’t win the title this year. There Fred and “Big D,” I said it. Are you happy? But guess what, Miami won’t repeat either. And that you can take to the bank. (Please God, close the bank on the Heat!):03 The only person that can beat Floyd “Big Money” Mayweather is “Father Time.” No one out there is even close!:02 But it’s a good thing Mayweather doesn’t have two ringside judges like Las Vegas Judge Cynthia Ross who scored the fight between Floyd and Canelo Alvarez a draw. He wouldn’t have “No Money!” She did what? Oh no, she did-nt… oh yes, she did!:01 Get ready to get ready! The Champions and Roland Ford presents, the last Harlem Nites and you won’t want to miss it. Honoring the legend of R&B, D.J.’s Sly Jock and special honored guest, Master Jacquet Bazemore for his recent Karate Hall of Fame induction – Sept. 27 – 3 Lakes Golf Course, 6700 Saltsburg Rd., Penn Hills – cash bar – cash kitchen – 50/50 – free parking – quality vendors – special guest D.J. the Line Dance King Roland Ford – special guest Salsa Dancers… line dancers… and ball room dancers – proceeds benefit Champions Toys for Tots – bring a toy and help the children 412-628-4856 for more information.~ GAME OVER ~ Your comments are welcome.

Nelson Home Building Centre Leafs Player Profile of the Week — Tyler Moffat

first_imgFacebook or Twitter: TwitterOther interests: Fly-fishingHockey History:2012-13 Kindersley Klippers, SJHL, Creston Thunder Cats2011-12 Lloydminster Bobcats, SJHL, Creston Thunder Cats2010-11 Calgary Midget AA2009-10 Calgary Midget AA2008-09 Calgary Minor Midget AAAThe Nelson Daily: What brought you to the Leafs?Tyler Moffat: A trade. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go back to Creston and when I found out you could attend post secondary school with Nelson, and obviously they’re a good team I asked my coach if it would be possible to get a trade worked out with Nelson.TND: What type of a goalie are you?TM: I’m a more athletic goalie. I can’t really rely on my size so I have to rely on reactions and agility.TND: What strengths do you bring to the Leafs?TM: I think I can give the team a chance to win in every game we play. I consider myself a bit of a leader in the room. I’m pretty easy-going guy but I can definitely give the rookies advice if they need it.TND: Your former team is having a pretty good season. Any regrets leaving? Why?TM: No. I enjoyed my time in Creston but it just wasn’t the best place for me to go back to for my final year considering I do want to start post-secondary education and Nelson’s really the only team that offers that opportunity.TND: The recent success of Brad Rebagliati, do we have the makings of a Luongo/Schnieder Canuck goalie controversy with the Leafs?TM: Not really. I think it’s really good we have two goalies that can win us games every night. This isn’t just like any other year in Nelson because the team is hosting the Cyclone (Taylor Cup). So to be in tournament like that and have the pressure of being a championship team you need two goalies that can steal a game on any give night. . .. It’s only going to help us win more games and just going to make everybody look better. . .. It gives me motivation to play well as well because otherwise I won’t be able to get in the nets.TND: What are your individual goals this season and beyond?TM: Win league this year because this is my last year of junior. So definitely win the league and if we win the Cyclone, that would be a huge bonus. And individually, it’s a goal of mine to get a scholarship in hockey for a post-secondary education in either Canada or the USA.TM: Bachelor of Commerce degree specializing in petroleum land management. Being from Alberta obviously oil huge for us. So to get into that industry would be great.TND: Where do you hope to be next year?TM: At a post-secondary institute in Canada or the USA getting an education.TND: In 5 years?TM: Definitely be graduated and looking for a job somewhere.TND: In 10 years?TM: Married, for sure, settled down somewhere in Alberta. It’s been said that a change is as good as a rest.For Tyler Moffat, a change in scenery has definitely made an impact on his save percentage, wins and almost everything else with the Nelson Leafs Hockey Club.In 11 games, the Calgary native has backstopped Nelson to 10 wins — the lone loss coming in overtime.Moffat is second behind teammate Brad Rebagliati in both goal average (2.13) and save percentage (.921).“Moffs” as he’s known to his teammates no doubt will get the call this weekend — even against his former Creston club — when the Green and White take to the ice for a three-game Kootenay International Junior Hockey League weekend.First up is Friday against Princeton Posse before Murdoch rival Spokane makes its first appearance at the NDCC Arena.Both games have a 7 p.m. puck drop.Sunday is that Kootenay Conference showdown in the East Kootenay against the Thunder Cats.Here’s a quick look at Moffat in the Nelson Home Building Centre Leafs Player Profile of the Week.Nelson Home Building Centre Leafs Player Profile of the WeekTyler MoffatAge: 20Place of birth: Calgary, Alta.Hometown: Calgary, Alta.Height: 5-foot, 9 inchesWeight: 175 poundsYears in Hockey: 17Years playing goal: 14Favorite NHL Player: Jonathan BernierFavorite NHL Team: Calgary FlamesFavorite Music: Hip HopPre-Game Meal: Chicken/PastaBiggest accomplishment in hockey: Stopping 70 shots during a KIJHL playoff game against Kimberley Dynamiters.School: Selkirk College, Castlegar, Economics/EnglishNickname: Moffslast_img read more

Kansas Removes Darwinism from Protected Status

first_imgIt’s official; the Kansas school board has accepted new science standards that permit criticisms of Darwinism, reported Evolution News.  This makes Kansas the fifth state to allow both evidences for and against Darwinism to be taught, and brings their definition of science in line with the majority of other states.    News reactions were not far behind; MSNBC news was perhaps the mildest, even though they incorrectly defined intelligent design with reference to a “higher power.”  USA Today said that evolution defenders weighed in their voices before the vote with an email campaign calling the standards “backward.”  The new standards still teach only Darwinism, however – intelligent design is expressly denied – but the fact that evidences against evolution would be permitted was enough to anger opponents of the decision; EurekAlert posted a response by AAAS president Alan Leshner, for instance, that claimed the decision will hurt the economy and undermine science education.  BBC News actually lied about the ruling, calling it an “intelligent design policy” and claiming that teachers have been “ordered” to tell pupils that the “universe is so complex that it may have been created by a higher power.”  The standards contain no such statement or obligation; on the contrary, the standards explicitly disclaim the teaching of intelligent design.  Nevertheless, even though students will be learning more about Darwinism than ever before, the BBC titled their article, “Evolution suffers science setback” accompanied by a picture of Charles Darwin that made him look saddened by the decision.  LiveScience proclaimed, “Kansas School Board Votes Against Science.”    Science1 magazine last week hoped that a move to prohibit use of copyrighted material in the standards might delay adoption till a time-consuming rewrite with substitute language could be completed (the NAS and Natl. Science Teachers Assn. are denying the school board permission to use any of their materials).  If this delays adoption of the standards for a year, five seats on the board will be up for election in November 2006 – and four of those are held by conservatives.    In Pennsylvania, testimony wrapped up last Friday in the Dover trial.  The L.A. Times gave pretty good press about Michael Behe’s testimony; at least Jonathan Witt thought so on Evolution News.  The controversy draws in lots of opinions from all quarters.  Owen Gingerich criticized both sides on Science and Theology News; MSNBC posted a large photo of Darwin’s great-great-grandson in the Harrisburg audience, probably more for anecdotal than substantive value; French Catholic Cardinal Paul Poupard warned against fundamentalism in attempting to smooth relations with the Darwinists, according to Associated Press; E. O. Wilson coined the phrase “intelligent evolution” in his article praising the legacy of Charles Darwin in Harvard Magazine (though EvolutionNews insisted he got the definition of I.D. wrong again); and Casey Luskin, reporting in Evolution News about the cross-examination of biochemist Scott Minnich on the witness stand in Dover, overheard a listener on the plaintiff side admitting, “the witness is smarter than the lawyer.”1Yudhijit Bhattacharjee, “Groups Wield Copyright Power to Delay Kansas Standards,” Science, Vol 310, Issue 5749, 754, 4 November 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.310.5749.754a].Everybody seems to be claiming the other side is generating more heat than light.  Don’t they know that heat is a form of light?  That’s basic physics, and so is Newton’s 3.5th Law: every action has an equal and opposite criticism.  Heat feels good on a freezing day.  It’s about time things thawed out a little since the wicked witch Tinker Bell (09/22/2005) turned the animals to stone and made it always winter and never Christmas.  Fear not the warming rays, but rather the bluster and howls of rhetorical witchery that blankets the landscape with lies and hate.  At the end of the long Darwinian ice age, seeing the sun again finally, with both heat and light, is making the world come alive.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Four Important Ideas about Success

first_imgAspire to be more: Your vision of yourself isn’t big enough. Your capacity far exceeds any limits that you perceive. You are capable of being and doing more. You only begin to stretch yourself when your vision grows big enough. Once you believe that you can be more, you will become more.You can create a lot more value than you are presently. Go ahead and be more.Fear isn’t real: There are plenty of bad and unpleasant things that will happen to you over the course of your life. Those bad things can cause you great pain. But fear isn’t real. It’s an emotional state. It’s suffering an imaginary pain. It takes courage to face the things that may harm you. But it’s the thing itself that harms you; the fear is something you conjure up in your mind.Go ahead and act.There is only abundance: There are a lot people who go without what they need to survive. But that isn’t because there isn’t enough food, clothing, shelter, or water. There are people who need help because they have no money. But that isn’t because there isn’t enough money in the world. And there are people that go without love, but that isn’t because love is a finite resource. Because we humans are endowed with curiosity, creativity, and resourcefulness, we have nothing but abundance. Scarcity is a mindset.Believe that you can give more, and be open to receiving more.Love is what matters most: You are only going to judge your life by your relationships. You are going to consider your successes in life to be the times when you made a difference for other people. You are going to remember the people that lifted you up, that cared for you when you needed help. More than “success,” more than money, more than any possessions, love is what matters most of all.Go ahead and love more. That’s all there really is.last_img read more
