Anyone who has ever pulled a hamstring knows how painful it can be. Former Louisville defensive lineman B.J. Dubose, competing at the NFL Combine Sunday morning, did just that, pulling up lame near the end of his 40-yard-dash run. Dubose eventually lost his balance and fell to the ground as well. It’s tough to watch.B.J. Dubose. That’s no good. https://t.co/ZRBQeo3N0k— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurke_SI) February 22, 2015We’re actually surprised this doesn’t happen more, given the fact that these athletes are giving it their all for four to five seconds. Hopefully he makes a fully recovery.
CALGARY – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has some advice for the next leader of Saskatchewan: handle the economy differently than the government has under current premier Brad Wall.The governing Saskatchewan Party is to choose a new leader later this month to replace Wall, who announced last summer that he was leaving politics.Wall rose to national prominence for his down-to-earth style, sharp wit and, more recently, his willingness to lock horns with Ottawa.The conservative politician has also been known to trade jabs with his left-leaning Alberta counterpart on everything from provincial budgets to beer taxes.There’s also been an interprovincial spat over Saskatchewan banning Alberta licence plates on trucks working on future government road and infrastructure projects.Notley said whoever wins the Saskatchewan Party’s leadership race can learn a thing or two from Alberta.“I believe that the advice I’d give to the new premier is to look at the facts, look at the data, look at the reporting on economic activity and reconsider the approach they’ve taken up ’til now, because one province is making its way out of a recession and one is not,” Notley said Thursday during a visit to Calgary’s Minhas Micro Brewery.The brewery said it has been able to grow its business thanks to NDP policies.“One province is adding tens of thousands of new jobs; one province is losing jobs. I would suggest that they should look at the data and start drawing some different conclusions.”Wall responded to Notley’s comments with a few rhetorical jabs of his own.He said his advice to his successor will be to not listen to an NDP premier who imposed a carbon tax on her oil-dependent economy and is presiding over an annual $10 billion deficit.Wall also accused Notley of not standing up to the federal government.“Rather than defend her province against carbon taxes imposed by the Trudeau government, this is a premier who actually called her own province ‘Canada’s embarrassing cousin that nobody wants to talk about,’” Wall said in a statement Thursday night.“Well I am proud to talk about both Alberta and Saskatchewan and their huge contribution to the country. If her government is not prepared to defend the interests of Alberta, we are happy to help.”Five candidates who hope to lead the Saskatchewan Party face a vote on Jan. 27 in Saskatoon.
VANCOUVER, B.C. – LNG Canada’s CEO says construction will start in 2018 on the $40-billion LNG facility.During an LNG conference Tuesday, Andy Calitz was quoted by Reuters news service as saying “It didn’t make sense in July 2016. When (our stakeholders) asked the inevitable question, when will you reconsider the FID? Our answer was: We will be in construction in 2018. I reaffirm that commitment today.”Calitz confirmed a final investment decision was still on target to be made in 2018. Reuters also quoted Calitz as saying anti-dumping tariffs on fabricated industrial steel was no longer an issue for the project and wouldn’t have an impact on the final investment decision.LNG Canada requested an exemption from the 45.8 percent tariffs.LNG Canada is a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell Plc, PetroChina Co Ltd, Mitsubishi Corp and Korea Gas Corp. TransCanada Corp will build the pipeline.
(THE CANADIAN PRESS) Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to face criticism from premiers about the federal approach to pipelines, carbon taxes, oil prices, environmental assessments and a planned General Motors plant closure in Ontario, none of which is specifically on the agenda.Notley also said she doesn’t want to spend time listening to what the federal government says it is already doing to try to address Alberta’s concerns.“It just doesn’t make sense … talking about things that have already happened,” she said. “We don’t need federal ministers to explain to us what they’ve already done. We’re all capable of reading their press releases.”In Ontario, Doug Ford’s office said the Ontario premier is prepared to walk away from the meeting Friday if it does not include specific discussions on the federal carbon tax. Ford was set to meet with Trudeau in Montreal on Thursday afternoon.Sources familiar with the dispute said Ford and Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe have not been satisfied by the federal response that the first ministers meeting agenda already includes a discussion on economic competitiveness, a broad topic that Ottawa says will allow premiers to raise all the issues they please.Ontario government house leader Todd Smith said the agenda doesn’t deal with the concerns of the provinces, which include the carbon tax, the GM plant and the oil-price crisis. EDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she’ll have allies in the room to help push talks on the oil-price crisis at the upcoming first ministers meeting.“There is really no province in the country that doesn’t owe Alberta to some degree for their schools, their hospitals, their roads. The fact of the matter is Alberta has to do well for Canada to do well,” Notley said in Edmonton Thursday before leaving for the meeting in Montreal.She noted that forecasts for Canada’s economic growth are already more muted because of the low price Alberta is getting for its oil in the United States and its inability to move its product to ports for shipment overseas. Federal officials have privately conceded that little headway is likely to be made on the official objective of the meeting: reducing interprovincial trade barriers.Asked by reporters in Montreal about the premiers’ dissatisfaction with the agenda, Trudeau refused to engage with the question directly.“I’m looking forward to a productive discussion. I have no illusions that we’re going to agree on everything,” he said.He was to have a private meeting with Ford later Thursday. The formal meeting among all the first ministers is Friday.
Actor Julia Roberts spent time with prostitutes who were paid $35 each to talk to her before filming Pretty Woman. Barbara Marshall, a former nurse and the widow of the movie’s director, Garry Marshall, has opened up on how she was volunteering at a free clinic here in 1989 when she got a call from her spouse, reports New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column. She said: “Garry would never visit me at the clinic, because he was a hypochondriac and afraid of getting a disease. But he asked if Julia could come and talk to some of the patients. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka”I recruited two young women who came to the clinic regularly, and I paid them $35 each to meet with Julia. I went back to work, and about 20 minutes later, Julia yelled from the end of the hall, ‘Bye, Barbara. We’re going to take a drive. We’ll be back later.'” Marshall panicked and called her husband and told the director: “Your star just left with a group of girls, and I think they were heading to Hollywood Boulevard. I’m worried. What if she doesn’t come back?” But the group returned later and Barbara praised Julia as “one tough lady who can take care of herself on and off camera”. Her most successful films include Mystic Pizza (1988), Steel Magnolias (1989), Pretty Woman (1990), to name a few.
New Delhi: Just a fortnight ahead of the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections, the Opposition parties have started questioning the Election Commission of India (EC) and its alleged ‘political predisposition’. On Wednesday the TDP-ruled state government in Andhra Pradesh filed a petition in High Court challenging the orders of the EC transferring three top cops on Tuesday night. The court accepted the petition.Meanwhile, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu expressed serious concern over the issue and questioned how the Election commission reacts immediately on the complaint of an alleged economic offender Vijayasai Reddy. He further alleged that the Opposition YSR Congress party was trying to terrorise officials. He said that the transfer of officials who will not come under EC purview sends wrong signals.

The AP CM further warned of launching ‘Save Democracy and Save Democratic Institutions’ agitation. A TDP delegation of MPs CM Ramesh, K Raveendra Kumar and other senior leaders met the Chief Election Commissioner of India (CEC) Sunil Arora on Wednesday evening and submitted a memorandum.

Over one year ago (Feb 2018) Trinamool had raised an objection to his presence in uniform at an RSS function,” Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien tweeted. The Election Commission appointed four special observers, two retired IRS and two IPS officer, to spearhead its efforts to check the abuse of black money and illegal inducements to voters and monitor deployment of security forces in select sensitive states during the Lok Sabha polls. Sharma is one of them.
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party is likely to release its election manifesto on Hindu New Year, however, a party source told the Millennium Post that the Prime Minister’s office is yet to confirm.In 2014, the manifesto was released only on the morning of the first day of polling for the first phase. Avoiding the erstwhile situation, the saffron party had launched a mega drive this time, in the month of February – ‘Bharat Ke Mann Ki Beat’ – where BJP has taken public opinion to make the final ‘Sankalp Patra’.

Suggestions from citizens received in the boxes on the more than 300 mobile video raths and feedback received through other means like emails and public meeting-level consultations in all states are expected to be in by the end of March. A ‘Special Focus’ on the growth of the economy, farmer’s welfare and national security, nationalism is being given this time, party sources said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KIn 2014 ‘Sankalp Patra’, the party mentioned its intention to increase public spending on education, universalise secondary schooling (Class IX and above) and a range of reviews and reform of existing schemes and programmes. Further, special emphasis was given on vulnerable children and especially those belonging to the vulnerable communities like SCs, STs, OBCs, migrants, slum dwellers, street dwellers and those with disabilities. Girl child education, public spending on education would be raised to 6 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product and involving the private sector on this and other important issues were also in priority for the last Lok Sabha election. But this time, the defence infrastructure, mechanism of tackling terrorism, employment generation etc. are likely to be part of the ‘Sankalp Patra’, confronting the opposition’s election manifesto. Apart from the platform of the election campaign, BJP is likely to highlight the PM Kisan Nidhi Samman scheme.
