UPDATE: How close is Christian Wade to joining the NFL?

first_imgTuesday Feb 26, 2019 UPDATE: How close is Christian Wade to joining the NFL? The former Wasps star and England winger has had a challenging time coming to grips with his new-found sport of choice as he works hard to get drafted into the NFL. After leaving rugby behind, he’s embarked on the arduous task of getting up to speed with the sport. ADVERTISEMENTWade has been through stringent testing, both on and off the training ground, to get himself ready for selection. He’s said that finding his feet has been more challenging than he expected, as there is so much to learn about American Football, perhaps more than he anticipated.The try-scoring machine is up or the challenge though and continues to be put through his paces as he transitions from a professional rugby player into a super athlete ready for the NFL.The journey continues, as ESPN caught up with him recently where he explained the gruelling process and said that very soon he will find out if he has what it takes when coaches and scouts witness him performing in the combine.If he impresses he will likely be drafted to a squad and the first chapter of his monumental journey will have been a success. Fingers crossed!credit: espnADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Two Philippine journalists freed

first_img News PhilippinesAsia – Pacific to go further News Help by sharing this information February 16, 2021 Find out more On 7 October, police in Sulu province jailed Hadja Jarma Mohammad Imran, better known as Hadja Lyn, after charging her with the kidnapping of two GMA television reporters she was accompanying on Jolo island. Lyn, who works with the army disarming rebel groups on Jolo, says she is innocent and accuses three members of the Moro National Liberation Front (who are also members of the national army’s 104th Battalion) of being behind the kidnappings. She said one of them was Capt. Alex Musngi. She was charged in the absence of her lawyer, has refused to sign several statements and has called on GMA journalist Carlo Lorenzo to give evidence in her favour.___________________________________________________________Reporter Carlo Lorenzo and cameraman Gilbert Ordiales were freed on 3 October after being held in captivity for six days in the mountains of the southern Philippine island of Jolo. They were taken to the provincial governor in Sulu. Following the intervention of local officials, the two men were found safe and sound not far from the spot where they were kidnapped. The television channel GMA has denied any suggestions that a ransom was paid to the kidnappers. The kidnappers have not been formally identified. They are probably former Moro National Liberation Front rebels who have turned to crime. The rebels threatened Mr Lorenzo and Mr Ordiales with a gun and took all their personal belongings of any value, but the two men say they were not ill treated. In a statement to the press, Mr Lorenzo said, “I thought they were going to kill us, to decapitate us, but we are safe and sound”. Seven people are still being held hostage on the Jolo Island.___________________________________________________________Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières) expressed its great concern today about the disappearance of two television journalists on the southern Philippines island of Jolo and said it feared they had been kidnapped.Nothing has been heard from the two – reporter Carlo Lorenzo and cameraman Gilbert Ordiales, both of the privately-owned TV station GMA – since 28 September.”Events in recent years on Jolo, which is plagued by guerrillas and bandits, lead us to fear they are being held hostage,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. He appealed to the leaders of the Muslim guerrilla Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) to release the journalists if it was holding them.At least 27 Filipino and foreign journalists have been kidnapped by Muslim rebels and bandits in the Sulu Archipelago since May 2000.Lorenzo and Ordiales went to the town of Indanan on 28 September to interview three Indonesian hostages or the leader of the armed group holding them. Police said they were supposed to meet Arola Abubakar, one of the MNLF leaders.The two reporters met their first contact, Jalma Abdurajak, in the village of Ommol Quid, near Barangay Buansa. They then went to Barangay Talibang where Abubakar and his men met them and took them on foot to one of their camps near Barangay Kagay. The journalists’ driver then lost contact with them. The Philippines army began searching for them near Indanan on 1 October.The authorities have for several years warned local and foreign journalists to stay away from the Sulu Archipelago, where the army clashes frequently with armed groups, especially the forces of Abu Sayyaf. Journalists are often robbed or taken hostage. Victims have included Andreas Lorenz, Maryse Burgot, Jean-Jacques Le Garrec and Roland Madura, in July 2000, and Arlyn de la Cruz, in January this year.

Sara Bowden and I were going to do a short dialogue. I didn’t know how it would go over but Shelia Jackson was going to sing so I knew we had an ace in our pockets.”The BHS got the seed money for the play. For North Carolina storyteller Michael Reno Harrell, Folkmoot 200 was a homecoming of sorts. The nationally acclaimed storyteller has been featured at five or six “who’s counting” Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festivals. Either by fate, or a gig date, Harrell was placed in Pike County at just the right time to be the featured performer at the Brundidge Historical Society’s Folkmoot 200 Bicentennial event at Lake Simmie Friday night.The Folkmoot was a gathering of those who have been a part of Alabama’s Official Folk life Play, “Come Home, It’s Suppertime” over 17 years and counting. “The Folkmoot was a way to say thank you to those who have been the success of our folk life play over the years,” said Lawrence Bowden, BHS president who joins Johnny Steed as the only cast members who have been in all productions of ‘Come Home.’ “Many of those who came to Folkmoot 200, have been in the play 10 or more years and none less than four or so. It was good to see everyone again. Hopefully, before long, we can gather again.

Woman’s emotional post shows mom with COVID-19 meeting grandchild through glass

first_imgJessica/Our Mama Village(ONTARIO, Canada) — A woman’s powerful post about her mother meeting her newborn through a glass door is resonating with parents who’ve experienced the same moment amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.The touching photograph has garnered thousands of likes on Instagram.“My mom is a great grandma, loves her grandkids a lot,” said Jessica, a mother of two who declined to give her surname for professional reasons. “She’s [my] No. 1 support system.”“I really debated sharing it because it’s a super personal moment,” she added. “I’ve gotten so many messages from people going through the same thing. It’s like this collectively heartbreaking experience but when we can share it together it somehow feels little bit better.”Jessica, a mom to a 3-year-old and a 2-week-old from Ontario, Canada, told “Good Morning America” her province is shut down due to the pandemic. Her husband is working from home, and she is taking some time off after giving birth.When she went to the hospital to give birth to her youngest, both her parents had tested positive COVID-19, she said.“They were quite sick and quarantined at home,” Jessica noted. “They didn’t have to be in the hospital which is great, but I worried about my mom because she had asthma.”Jessica said her parents are thankfully in recovery. On Easter Sunday, her mother Sandra approached the sliding glass door to meet her newest granddaughter.Jessica shared the image with her 106,000 Instagram followers on her page Our Mama Village, writing in part:Never imagined the first time my parents would meet my daughter would be through a sliding glass door…This is not what any of us expected. These times are challenging. I’m not immune to these challenges. I’ve cried about COVID, worried about my parents and all the others who are sick, lost sleep, grieved over the postpartum l had planned and more.But I’ve also witnessed the kindness of strangers, the amazing care of hospital staff and midwives. I’ve seen healing, had a positive birth experience, felt love and prayers from others, and experienced amazing friends and family helping from a distance.These times are scary, hard, AND there is still good, light, and joy.Parents have commented on the April 13 post, revealing they too had their newborns meet grandparents through glass.“I had my son March 24 and I can relate to your post whole heartily,” one person wrote. “This has been one of the most challenging time’s in my life as well.”“We did this today too … it was so sad,” said another. “Definitely not the normal or what we wanted.”Jessica said she’s looking forward to the day when her mother can hold her grandchild for the first time.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Family of Andrew Brown to reveal results of independent autopsy

first_imgAndrew Brown Jr. in an undated photo. – Courtesy Brown Family(ELIZABETH CITY, N.C.) — The family of a 42-year-old Black man who died in a barrage of bullets fired at his car by North Carolina sheriff’s deputies are expected to announce the results of an independent autopsy.Andrew Brown Jr.’s relatives and attorneys plan to announce the outcome of the postmortem exam they commissioned during a news conference Tuesday morning outside the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Department in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.The announcement will come a day after family members were allowed to view what they described as a 20-second clip from one police body camera of the unarmed Brown being shot to death with his hands on the steering wheel of his car outside his home in Elizabeth City.Brown’s son, Khalil Ferebee, described what he saw in the footage as his father being “executed” as he attempted to drive away.Attorneys for the family said Brown was shot at least once in the back of the head.“He still sat there in his vehicle with his hands on the steering wheel while being shot at,” Chantel Cherry-Lassiter, one of the family’s attorneys who was allowed to watch the video, said during a news conference on Monday.Cherry-Lessiter said that at no time in the short video snippet did she see Brown threatening the officers, adding, “He was trying to evade being shot.”Seven Pasquotank County deputies involved in the April 21 shooting have been placed on administrative leave while the North Carolina Bureau of Investigation probes the circumstances of the deadly encounter. The names of the deputies have not been released.Pasquotank County Sheriff Tommy Wooten said on Monday evening that the county attorney had filed a motion asking a judge to allow the public to see the video, but did not indicate when the footage might be released.“This tragic incident was quick and over in less than 30 seconds,” Wooten said in a video statement, adding that the footage from officer body cameras is shaky and sometimes hard to decipher.“They only tell part of the story,” Wooten said.Relatives of Brown and their attorneys complained that they were not shown all of the video available of the deadly confrontation, including footage of what prompted the shooting and its aftermath.The Pasquotank County Sheriff Department has released few details of the shooting.The shooting unfolded about 8:30 a.m. when deputies from Pasquotank and Dare Counties went to Brown’s home to attempt to serve an arrest warrant on Brown that stemmed from a felony drug investigation, officials said.Deputies opened fire on Brown’s car as he attempted to drive away from his home. A first responder was recorded on 911 dispatch saying Brown was shot in the back.According to the search warrant obtained by ABC News, sheriff’s investigators wanted to search Brown’s home for crack cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin. In an affidavit attached to the search warrant, detectives claimed they used a confidential informant to record audio and video of the informant purchasing crack cocaine and methamphetamine from Brown on several occasions.Brown’s family and their attorneys claimed investigators failed to find weapons or drugs in Brown’s vehicle and home.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
