Ancaman teror itu nyata dan kami tidak mengambil risiko ketika harus melindungi kehidupan para pelancong,” ujar Direktur Keamanan Federal New Jersey TSA Tom Carter.Carter menambahkan, orang yang membawa perangkat tersebut ke pemeriksaan, harusnya tahu dia memiliki bom replika.

Top 10 NFL Logos

It’s one of the best logos that has withstood the test of time. Even the updated logo with the band of gold added to it looks good. I hate to say it, but the Cowboys star and Giants “NY” logos are also very well done, timeless and traditional. If you do it right the first time, you don’t have to update every ten years.The Buccaneers have the greatest modern logo package in football, I think. It transformed an entire team and a city. As soon as they ditched Bucco Bruce and the bright orange, the Bucs became the NFC Raiders, except they have a shorter prison rap sheet and actually win games. When a logo redesign changes the entire attitude of your organization, that’s worth recognizing.The Cleveland Browns lack of logo, that awful Atlanta Falcons logo, and the Cincinnati Bengals “B” logo, are on this list. Are they serious? The Bengals have great helmets, but the logo? Come on. I think some “homer” element was involved in this selection process.Oh, and I happen to like the flying Elvis Pats logo, though I am a native New Englander and not a Patriots fan. 115 posts Members Share this post Share this post 1 Location:Portland, Oregon Posted October 24, 2006 Initialisms Suck By plamenj, October 23, 2006 in Sports Logo News 43 0 Share this post My top ten NFL logos would consist of:1) Jacksonville Jaguars2) Seattle Seahawks3) Philadelphia Eagles4) Atlanta Falcons5) New England Patriots6) Tampa Bay Buccaneers7) Houston Texans8) Denver Broncos9) St. Louis Rams10) Arizona CardinalsMy top ten NFL helmets would consist of:1) Seattle Seahawks2) Cincinnati Bengals3) Jacksonville Jaguars4) St. Louis Rams5) Philadelphia Eagles6) Atlanta Falcons7) San Diego Chargers8) Tampa Bay Buccaneers9) Denver Broncos10) New England Patriots Share this post Posted October 24, 2006 TenaciousG hecticbro Posted October 24, 2006 Favourite Logos:Boston Red Sox San Francisco 49ers Orlando Magic (1989-2000) Detroit Red Wings Hartford Whalers Charlotte Checkers (Current) Share on other sites 2,396 posts 0 Seriously, are we not doing ‘phrasing’ anymore?

There is a very harsh difference between the ones that are a nice design, and those that are bad design. Not team preference, but design.Goods: Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Indy, Philly, Seattle, TennesseeThose are far and away the best. Strange the ‘designers’ picked the Pats’ flying elvis. That logo blows goats. Recommended Posts 0 Share on other sites 2,305 Share on other sites Share this post zig Share this post SportsLogos.Net I think the Jags’ logo is pretty awful. It looks awkward, has a nasty teal color in there, and it disappears on the black helmet.My top ten helmets would be: Bengals, Seahawks, Bucs, Falcons, Texans, Broncos, Giants, 49ers, Rams, Cardinals Are they voting for the 10 WORST Logos?They are all horrible except for the Seahawks.AND… NFL logos aren’t important, it’s the helmet design that should be voted on. The team helmet is their identity.Agreed. Especially since it’s the most visible element of the NFL uniform. Sure, people see the jerseys as the main ingredient, but it’s that dome that really sets off everything else. And so, in that regard, if I was to vote on best HELMET, ain’t no way the Broncos helmet would be that high up on the list. It ain’t bad–just not one of the best in terms of identity. I like the Texans’ dome a lot, but if you were going for sheer identity–something that upon seeing it ONCE the image got burned into your head, like you INSTANTLY know what it is…that’d HAVE to be my Buccaneers’ domes. That bright red flag set off against that petwer background…you wanna talk about POP? There you go…Of course, there are others. For the sake of ingenuity, I’d give that vote to the Eagles (for the winghead look) and the Vikings (with or without black detail). OH–and the Bengals, for those tiger stripes.

Photo/Jason GoormanIn both 2014 and 2015, Yates was pinned by his opponents in the state finals and took home second place. His sophomore loss may have been the most painful when Yates held a 7-2 scoring advantage before being pinned in the final second of the second round.“It feels real good,” said Yates who finishes with a 37-1 record on the year. “After being up both my freshmen and sophomore years but losing, it means a lot.”Yates, who broke his leg during the football season, but still managed to wrestle and play basketball this winter, said the support of all his coaches really helped him.“My basketball coach and football coach have been supporting me and texting me after my match,” said Yates. “It feels great to have everyone supporting me.”One person who supported Yates was his wrestling coach, Doug Baird, who was happy for his championship break through.“I’m very proud of Gerrit,” said Baird. “He got the monkey off his back. I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out for him today.Hesperia Coach Doug Baird anticipates the Yates pin and first state title. Photo/Jason GoormanI think Gerrit had enormous pressure with coming up short the last few years and it meant a lot to him to win this year.”Another local wrestler who picked up a state title on Saturday was Jacob Shoop of Mason County Central.Shoop, a senior, won the Division 3 152-pound weight class title via a 17-1 technical fall. Shoop qualified all four years for state, and prior to Saturday, his best finish was third place as a junior.“It feels incredible,” said Shoop who finishes the year with a 56-1 record. “To do everything I’ve done in the past and all the extra work I’ve put in, it feels great to have it pay off.”One of the proudest people of Jacob was his father, John Shoop, who is also an assistant coach for the Mason County Central wrestling team.“Words can’t describe it,” said John about his son’s state championship. “It’s been a journey his whole life. He’s been wrestling since he was four, so it’s truly been a life long journey for him and I can’t describe how happy I am for him.”Jacob Shoop swings around his opponent while his father John Shoop (left) encourages from the sideline with Coach Jim Allen.

Felt finished his season with a 49-2 overall record.“Coming in I wanted to do my best,” said Morley about his finals loss and finishing his senior year with a 29-5 record. “I got to the finals and that was more than I expected.

Tokyo Olympics hold test event without fans, top athletes

first_img Despite the spreading virus, Tokyo Olympic organizers have finally held a test event. The recent outbreak of the coronavirus has forced them to cancel or postpone several. But they allowed a sport climbing event on Friday to go ahead, with a few restrictions: no fans and no top athletes. Instead they used amateurs to test the climbing facility. Almost all sports events and large gatherings have been shut down in Japan. Preseason baseball is being played without fans, the soccer J-League is suspended until March 18, and a spring sumo event will be contested in an empty arena. Schools are also closed across the country.The International Olympic Committee and local organizers say the Olympics will open as scheduled on July 24. The Paralympics are set for Aug. 25. Virologists, however, say it’s impossible to tell if the spreading virus will allow that to happen, and a cancellation or a postponement are possible. Twelve deaths in Japan have been attributed to the virus.China is reporting more than 3,000 deaths from the virus, and still has more than 80% of the world cases, though outbreaks are surging in Italy, Iran, and South Korea.

Jarrell Miller ‘committing attempted murder’ by being found drugs cheating for second time, says cancelled opponent

first_img Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Funny Moments Of Football 8 MOST DANGEROUS RAINS of All Time | TOP 10 INTERESTING What’s This “Trick” Called? Comment Down Below!! JARRELL MILLER’S second failed drug test has been likened to “committing attempted murder”.The 31-year-old American last year lost out on a reported £5million payday and the opportunity to challenge for the unified titles after he failed a hat-trick of drug tests prior to fighting Anthony Joshua. Jarrell Miller’s second failed drug test has been likened to ‘committing attempted murder’Following a measly six month ban by the WBA, Miller was rewarded with a deal to sign for US promotion Top Rank and was scheduled to make his ring return this week against Jerry Forrest.That was until news broke that the heavyweight bad boy had once again tested positive for a banned substance – believed to be GW1516, one of the substances that ruled him out of fighting Joshua.And Forrest, who avoided fighting the drug-shamed heavyweight, has hit out at ‘Big Baby’.He told BoxingScene: “That’s who he is. When someone shows you who they are, you believe them.“He’s shown us who he is multiple times. It’s time for people to believe him.“Unfortunately, the way I look at it is, I don’t know him as a person, but, I am going to assume he’s a bad guy.“Any time you’re willing to cheat and use PEDs in a sport where you’re physically hitting someone, to me, that’s attempted murder in my eyes, because we can kill anyone with one punch.” MILLER SPEAKS OUTMiller attempted to protest his innocence after the shameful news by insisting he never willingly took the performance enhancing steroid and was left more “outraged” than anyone else. He told Fight Network: “This is something that was ingested.  “We don’t know if it was contaminated, but we’re investigating as of right now. Me and my team are just working due diligently to get the facts 100 per cent straight.“I have never ever willingly take a steroid for performance enhancement purposes.“Did I take something for healing properties, for injury, yes I have. Before a fight to win a fight and during a training camp, no, I have never done that.“Nobody can be more outraged than me. I’m the one that’s lost millions of dollars. I’m the one that’s had his career on the line. “But I have to think about it with a straight mind. I have to figure it out. Sit down with my team. Get everything in order and get everything done in the right way.”Miller will now be placed on temporary suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.Eddie Hearn says Jarrell Miller’s career is over after failing another drug test Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heelscenter_img Source: Boxing – thesun.co.uk Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night. 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!

On Thursday, Pena Nieto said search and rescue efforts in Mexico City were ongoing at 38 buildings damaged from the earthquake. But it was unclear Friday how many collapsed buildings may contain survivors. The 7.1 magnitude quake struck Tuesday afternoon, just hours after the region engaged in earthquake drills on the 32nd anniversary of a 1985 earthquake that claimed thousands of lives in Mexico. Tuesday’s quake was centered near Raboso in Puebla state, some 75 miles southeast of Mexico City, according to the United States Geological Survey. The natural disaster caused extensive damage across the capital, leveling at least 44 buildings, including homes, schools and office buildings, Pena Nieto said. In Mexico City alone, more than 1,900 people have been treated in health facilities after the quake and most of them have been discharged, according to Pena Nieto. Out of the 295 people killed in the earthquake, 157 deaths occurred in Mexico City, National Civil Protection chief Luis Felipe Puente wrote on Twitter. The number of dead is on the rise as rescuers continue to pull bodies from the piles of debris. Much of the rescue effort in Mexico City focused on the Enrique Rebsamen primary and secondary school, where officials offered conflicting information on the death toll and whether there were pupils trapped beneath the cinderblock and rebar that once made up a wing of the three-story building. Rescuers spent days trying to tunnel inside the debris after Mexico’s education minister said multiple students there — including a 12-year-old girl — were still alive within the pancaked piles of concrete slabs. Then, in a stunning turn of events, Mexico’s deputy minister of information told ABC News on Thursday afternoon it appeared no children remain trapped inside after cross-referencing all of the names of students and speaking with parents. He couldn’t explain the discrepancy. Members of the Los Angeles County Fire Department trained and equipped for urban search and rescue missions were deployed to Mexico City on Thursday by the United States Agency for International Development’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. They swept most of the collapsed school with canines and found no signs of life, though the team told ABC News they were only able to access about 75 percent of the rubble. On Wednesday night, Mexico’s president said 95 percent of electricity had been restored to the nearly 5 million customers in the country who lost power due to the massive earthquake. Mexico has accepted technical and specialized assistance from many countries, including the United States, Spain, Israel, Japan and several Latin American countries. “We are all one when it comes to saving a life or helping a victim,” Pena Nieto said.
