LSU’s Jalen Mills set to return

first_imgLSU safety Jalen Mills is expected to return to the field for the first time on Saturday against Florida.LSU safety Jalen Mills is expected to return to the field for the first time on Saturday against Florida.BATON ROUGE – LSU senior free safety Jalen Mills is expected to play for the first time this season on Saturday against Florida after missing the first five games of the season with an injured ankle, LSU coach Les Miles said after practice Wednesday night.“Jalen Mills practiced the whole week,” Miles said. “He was pretty good. I’d be surprised if he didn’t play. The thing is, he was never in a cast, constantly working out everything he could work out while rehabilitating his leg. I think he’ll see the field.”Mills, a native of DeSoto, Texas, injured his ankle just days before the scheduled season opener against McNeese State on Sept. 5, but that game was cancelled due to weather. He is a three-year starter, having started at cornerback in 2012 and ’13 and at safety last season.“He gives you experience, the ability to make checks, comfortable with adjustments,” Miles said. “We’re going to keep an eye on him certainly, making sure. It’s hard for me to figure anything but a real quality performance. He won’t be playing at mid-season form but I can’ imagine he won’t be playing very well.”Junior Rickey Jefferson has been starting in Mills’ place at free safety and has played very well. He is third on the team with 25 tackles and has three pass breakups.“He’s back,” Jefferson said. “I think he’ll be ready. It’s good to have a guy like that back on the field – somebody you can count on. We’re looking forward to see what he does, honestly. I play my part. I’ve never been a selfish teammate even if situations do happen to where I’m not on the field as much or at all, really, I’ll be all right. I’ll keep working hard.”OTHER STARTERS RETURNING: Miles also expects two other injured starters to return to action when the No. 6 Tigers (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) host No. 8 Florida (6-0, 4-0 SEC) at 6 p.m. Saturday on ESPN.Tight end Dillon Gordon is expected to play for the first time since injuring his Achilles against Auburn in the second game of the season. Defensive end Tashawn Bower, who has missed the last two games since injuring his leg at Syracuse, is also expected to play.Starting fullback John David Moore (thigh) will not play against Florida and may not be back until the Western Kentucky game on Oct. 24 or the Alabama game on Nov. 7.QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Yes, we are working on it.”— LSU senior associate athletic director for NCAA compliance Bo Bahnsen on the status of LSU tailback Leonard Fournette going through the proper channels to auction off his jersey from the South Carolina game Saturday for flood relief in South Carolina.Coverage of LSU and Glenn Guilbeau commentary supported by Hebert’s Town and Country Auto Dealer in Shreveport located at 1155 E.

Thinking about SELLING a China Counterfeit?

first_img 4,436 Saying that quality has nothing to do with it then mentioning how they want gently used stuff (i.e. not “rags”) two sentences later = contradiction.#let’sgetbackontopichereDo what you want, but I think that if you donate it, there’s a good chance someone will re-gift it, which as you mentioned, you don’t want. At first I was under the impression of donating it for free to hobos and I didn’t even consider thrift stores, which is why my comments seemed to make no sense. Posted March 27, 2012 All Activity 1,359 posts Thinking about SELLING a China Counterfeit? 0 4,132 posts The only reason I might be against donating it is because it wouldn’t really be a very good thing to donate. A shirt would be way more comfortable and would last way longer. The jersey is of crap quality and is certainly not as good as a shirt would be (but yet again, beggars can’t be choosers – literally).

Someone can look at that jersey, determine whether or not it’s worth their $5-$20, and then purchase it. It’s not like you’re sticking someone with that fake jersey as their only clothing. Really, somewhere like Goodwill or Salvation Army are the only fitting places for a counterfeit like that. coozapalooza Posted March 25, 2012 BigBubba 786 So, I have a bit of a possible dilemma, looking for a little feedback/advice from the CCSLC crowd. Here?s the story: about 2 years ago, a family member bought me as a present an ?authentic? Adrian Peterson purple Vikings jersey. (?Got a great deal!!?? well, I hope so.) I spotted 5 flaws before I pulled it out of the box? no gold stroke around the wordmark, wrong number font, terrible collar, thinner material, and worst of all, a blue-ish purple color. Also, no white stroke around the back logo, and 3 completely different golds, ranging from almost orange on the collar, to a sickly butter yellow on the side trim. I said awesome, thank you so much, blah blah blah, and hung it in the back of my closet. I didn?t worry about it much, I do collect jerseys, of course, but I?m too old to wear them around town anyway, and if I go to see the Vikings in person, I?m wearing throwback.Anyway, fast forward to this week, my wife and I are doing some Ebaying to clean out the place before someone calls ?Hoarders? on us, and while digging through my jerseys to see what I can part with, I come across this thing, which I hadn?t thought about in a year. So now, I?m considering putting it on Ebay, BUT? I don?t want to do to someone what was done to my very nice family member. Questions; would you sell it? If so, how would you word the description? How would you make it clear to the people (like us) who care about these things that it isn?t ?real?, while still making it appeal to the people who wouldn?t even notice the details? Or would you just scrap the whole idea?I thought about listing it with the words ?Chinese Knock-Off? in the heading, but then I thought I could get myself in trouble.

Let them sell it for $20 in their store and be happy that something is going to a charity. Ebay is flooded with fakes anywhere, so it isn’t like anyone would buy yours for more than $20 or so, especially if you say that it’s counterfeit in the listing. Also, if you actually say that in the posting, you are likely going to get the posting removed and your account suspended. Although probably 99% of ebay jersey listings are for fakes, they do occasionally remove postings and suspend users because selling counterfeits is against their rules. 1 Share on other sites Link to post 786 Posted March 25, 2012 0 Members 0 Followers 1 0 786 There’s a reason they ask for gently used clothing – so it’s not crap quality.

Tottenham now only a ‘second-row’ option for striker – Has to…

first_imgTottenham’s interest in AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piątek appears to have subsided, with them now only described as a ‘second-row’ option for the Polish striker. Spurs need a striker this month after losing Harry Kane until April at the earliest with a hamstring injury.They had been heavily linked with Piątek in recent weeks, with the striker out of favour at AC Milan this season.With ten days of the window left, time is running out for the Polish forward to get his move, but according to Tuttosport, Tottenham may no longer be an option.The newspaper reports that Piątek will have to make a decision this week as the club cannot risk being left without a viable replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimović.They name Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Tottenham as suitors, although the latter have moved back into the ‘second-row’ as an option for him.That suggests their interest is not as strong as it once was, and with Aston Villa and Crystal Palace both having signed the strikers they need this month, perhaps Piątek won’t be moving to England after all.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

This Day in History: Toussaint L’Ouverture of the Haitian Revolution was…

first_imgToussaint L’Ouverture was born in 1743By: Cerone White On this day in Caribbean history May 20, 1743, Francois-Dominique Toussaint L’Ouverture, most well-known and prolific Haitian leader of the Haitian revolution, was born on the Breda plantation in Saint-Domingue. The revolution was an anti-slavery and anti-colonial insurrection that took place in the French Colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti) that began in August 1791 and ended January 1804, lasting a total of twelve years, one week and four days. This revolution helped preserve the freedom and rights of Haitians, and turned what was the most prosperous slave colony of its time into the first free colonial society. The Haitian Revolution is said to be the greatest slave uprising since Spartacus.While there is no evidence to prove that L’Ouverture was formally educated, his writing would suggest that he was an  very educated man. The letters that he wrote tells us that he had a great command of the French language, and was also familiar with Epictetus, the Stoic philosopher. L’Ouverture’s work, according to biographers, shows familiarity with the writings of Machiavelli.On August 29, 1954 the Haitian ambassador to France, Léon Thébaud, inaugurated a stone cross memorial for Toussaint L’Ouverture who in 1800 had been proclaimed Governor for life by the colony’s constitution following the revolution. Toussaint L’Ouverture, however, was forced to resign in 1802 by armed forces sent by Napoleon Bonaparte to restore the French authority. L’Ouveture was then deported to France, where he died in 1803. The Haitian Revolution continued under his lieutenant, Jean-Jacques Dessalines who declared independence on January 1, 1804.Did you know?In 1782, Toussaint married Suzanne Simone Baptiste L’Ouverture, who is thought to have been his cousin or his godfather’s daughter.He told French general Caffarelli that he had fathered 16 children, of whom 11 had predeceased him.last_img read more

Valiant first innings batting key to outcome: Holder

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – Captain Jason Holder has pointed to West Indies’ rear guard batting effort in the first innings as the foundation of Sunday’s 226-run victory over Sri Lanka in the opening Test. The hosts were floundering at 147 for five just before tea on the opening day when Shane Dowrich, who made a splendid unbeaten 125, anchored three key partnerships to help lift the total to 414 for eight declared.Dowrich put on 90 for the sixth wicket with Holder (40), 102 for the seventh wicket with tail-ender Devendra Bishoo (40) before crushing Sri Lanka’s spirits in a 75-run, eighth wicket stand with Kemar Roach (39).“Credit to the batters and the bowlers. I thought it was an exceptional effort,” Holder told reporters. “To put us in that position on the first day’s play into the second day’s play with the bat, for a total in excess of 400 was really good. It gave our bowlers an opportunity to come out and run at the Sri Lankans. “Our lower order has probably been one of the most consistent lower orders in world cricket for the last two, three years and I always back the guys to put up a partnership and put a fight.”He continued: “It really started with the partnership that Shane and I had, then Devendra came in and played an outstanding knock and not only did he take time out of the game but he also scored as well. That really wore down the Sri Lankan bowlers and made it tough for them.”The victory for West Indies was their first over Sri Lanka in 10 years and handed them a 1-0 lead in the three-Test series, ahead of Thursday’s start of the the second Test in St Lucia. And with West Indies having endured a humbling whitewash to New Zealand in a two-Test series last December, Holder said Sunday’s victory was an ideal start to his side’s Test schedule for the year.“It feels really good. I thought the preparation was very good,” Holder explained. “We had a lot of time to sit back and reflect on how the year ended last year and to come to start this Test series the way we started it is quite pleasing, knowing in the past we have been a little lacklustre in starting series and playing catch-up cricket.“It is good to come out of the gates on a winning note and hopefully we can continue in St Lucia.” Prior to the Test, there were calls from sections of the Trinidad cricket community for a boycott, to protest what some saw as unfair treatment of their international players by West Indies selectors.However, Holder said his side had been buoyed by the support of the Queen’s Park Oval crowd.“I’m sure everybody is upbeat about the victory. Everybody was very supportive of the team,” he said.“Obviously [there was some] talk about people not being interested in Test cricket and not coming out to support us but I must say credit to the Trinidad public for supporting us over the last five days. “I think the crowd support was tremendous, they really got behind us throughout the game and we fed off of that energy.”last_img read more

McLaren launches Shadow Project esports programme

first_imgMcLaren has today announced the launch of the McLaren Shadow Project, supported by Logitech G, HTC Vive, Sparco Gaming and Alienware.Coming off the back of the Mclaren World’s Fastest Gamer competition in 2017, won by Rudy van Buren, who is now simulator test driver for McLaren F1 – McLaren is set to dip their toes back into esports in a big way with their new esports initiative, Shadow Project. This new global sim racing event will feature players across multiple games, including Xbox One title Forza Motorsport, Real Racing 3 on mobile, iRacing and rFactor 2 on the PC.Qualification is open to anyone aged over 18, with heats kicking off in August 2018 and run throughout the summer. The final of the competition will take place in January 2019 with the winner being crowned McLaren’s esports champion.Ben Payne, Mclaren Director of esports, had this to say on the news: “Last year’s competition proved that the skills learned as a racing gamer are transferable to the realworld. This is unique to the racing genre. We believe that esports and real-world racing have much to learn and give to each other and last year’s competition was just the start.”The winner of Shadow Project 2018 will win a place on the new McLaren esports team and represent the team across the world. The winner will also have access to Mclaren’s esports development programme, as well as receiving an ‘enviable stash of goodies’.Payne continued: “McLaren Shadow Project will be the most open and inclusive racing esports competition on the planet. We are looking for the most talented virtual racers from all countries and backgrounds. To make this possible we have partnered with the biggest racing game brands in the world – Real Racing 3 on mobile, Forza Motorsport on Xbox, PC racing sims iRacing and rFactor 2”McLaren also noted the inclusion of more casual titles such as Real Racing 3 was a key decision. Last year featured finalist and surgeon, Henrik Drue who reached the finals despite never playing racing games on a console or PC before. He out-performed most of the other finalists in the rigorous cognitive tests while also holding his own on the track.Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, had this to say: “Season one proved that esports are a new talent frontier for motorsport and after pioneering the programme in 2017, McLaren plans to develop the concept to generate greater global reach and engagement in season two. A strong, diverse esports programme has a direct benefit to McLaren’s innovative ambitions, bringing in new audiences, partners and talent to motorsport. By ramping upover multiple platforms across the online world, it will establish McLaren as an important brand in the motorsport esports community.”McLaren is set for a busy few months in esports, not only is Shadow Project launching, they will also be involved in next weeks Formula 1 Esports Pro Draft, taking place in London on the 9th of July.Esports Insider says: This is great news for sim racing, the scene has been one of the slowest gaming genres to adapt to esports, with F1 the biggest player in racing it was always going to be F1 that made sim racing esports big. With the second F1 esports season starting soon and Mclaren now starting their own project, which surprisingly does not feature an F1 game as an event, the future is looking bright for sim racing as an esport.Sign up to our newsletter!last_img read more

Worlds collide as Celine Dion, Kanye West, and Ryan Reynolds get into a “Deadpool”-themed Twitter exchange

first_img20th Century Fox(LOS ANGELES) — One might not expect a superhero team-up to include Deadpool, Celine Dion and Kanye West, but that’s just what happened — at least on Twitter.While tweeting his love for the Deadpool movies, the controversial rapper asserted that some of the music used in the films was reminiscent of his own work.“I love both Deadpool movies… I heard tracks in it that sound similar to mine,” Kanye tweeted. “bro I would have cleared my music for Deadpool.” He added, “your guys writing and approach is so innovative … I love how you guys break the 4th wall… thank you for being innovative and please know I’m down to clear next time.”Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds responded to Kanye’s tweet about the music sounding similar to his, writing, “Agree. I’m having a word with Celine Dion.” Celine, of course, recorded the song “Ashes” for the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, and Ryan appeared in the video with her.Then Celine got into the act, tweeting, “Hmm, ‘Ashes (Yeezy Remix)’ does have a nice ring to it…”Your move, Kanye.
