Video Maryland HS pulls off the perfect bounce pass TD trick

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix I’m not football historian, but I imagine that the bounce pass trick play has been around for as long as artificial grass / astroturf has been around when coaches and players discovered that a bounce pass is almost as predictable on those surfaces as it is on the hardwood.North Point HS (MD) pulled out the bounce pass play from their bag of tricks recently, and executed it to near perfection.Notice how players on defense stop once the ball skips across the ground backwards (thus making it a fumble), allowing the receiver turned quarterback to deliver a strike down the field for the score. It looks like the reception could have been a little cleaner, but other than that, this is a play of beauty.last_img read more

Mike Leach wants people to rally for his missing paycheck

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix I see one problem with this right off the bat: Jones Stadium is in Lubbock, and Leach will (presumably) be in Pullman on Saturday as the team he gets paid $2.95 million to coach hosts Colorado later that day.I’m not sure how many people will rally to get $2.5 million for a guy who isn’t even at the rally and has banked upwards of $10 million since his firing but, hey, rally and ye shall receive, I guess. Texas Tech owes Mike Leach $2.5 million. Or, at least Leach claims it does. Texas Tech says it doesn’t owe its former coach the money, but Leach believes the school has withheld it from him since his 2009 firing, and he isn’t afraid to tell anyone who will listen about it.In fact, Leach told me about it in a 2013 interview, and his determination to get that money has only hardened as more time goes by. He has launched a 1-man Twitter campaign to get the money — and a campaign against a Texas law that won’t allow him to sue for the money — and Leach’s chase for those Benjamins has now bled over into the real world.Leach — or someone on his behalf — has organized a #PayCoachLeach rally outside Jones A&T Stadium on Saturday.last_img read more

Ministry survey shows drivers bad stubborn and dangerous

first_imgCypriots drivers are bad, stubborn and dangerous, according to a survey carried out on behalf of the justice ministry in a bid to draft a new communications strategy on traffic safety.Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said on Friday the aim was to change the way messages about driv-ing are made to the public so they also reach younger drivers.Focusing on younger ages was driven by the fact that out of the 50 road deaths this year, 14 con-cerned youths.“Unfortunately, the number of young drivers whose dreams end on the tarmac remains high, as in the past seven years around 30 per cent of deaths in road accidents are youths who have only been driving six or seven years,” Nicolaou said.The survey canvassed new drivers, future drivers, but also men and women who are drivers, and parents of children and adolescents.Its findings more or less confirmed what is common knowledge, that Cypriot drivers are bad, careless, always in hurry, stubborn and dangerous.They flout traffic rules, they are rude and selfish on the roads. People aged between 15 and 25 also said they lacked respect towards pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.Many motorists also combine driving with other activities like phoning, messaging, eating and drinking, smoking, and some women go as far as doing their make-up and hair.The poll found that youngsters aged between 15 and 17 highlighted the poor public transport. They also said they knew and frequently get into cars driven by people near their own age who had a habit of drink driving.These teenagers associated getting a drivering licence with freedom and independence and there were also those in rural areas who drive without one.Most traffic violations were committed by new drivers, aged 18 and 19. These ages have proven to be one of the high-risk groups because they are usually overconfident about their abilities, have no experience, disregard dangers on the road and drive drunk, without using a seatbelt or crash helmet, talk on the phone, run traffic lights and speed.People in the 19 to 25 age group are more aware of the dangers of driving under the influence and try to protect themselves and their friends. They do however, use their phones while driving, run traffic lights, speed and smoke.Older drivers who are also parents, between 35 and 50, recognise the dangers and take all safety measures when they have kids on board.They are less prone to violating traffic rules and avoid serious offences such as drink driving and not wearing a seatbelt.But they also run lights, use their phones and smoke while driving.“Presentation of the conclusions of the study aims to make every driver, especially youths, reflect how easy it is, without thinking, if they should drive, to lose” everything in just a moment, the minister said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

the play Gazab Teri Adaaa (Source: NSD website) Related News Do you recall those plays from high school ‘Et tu Brute’ ‘The Bishop’s Candlesticks’ Yes not so much The backdrop was a setting of a small fort with an elevated pedestal and a projection screen behind It was the clash of two art forms the real and the representation The play ‘Gazab Teri Adaaa’ performed by National School of Drama Repertory Company was a commemoration to the lives lost in the World Wars A play to show how painful war is and how peace is a state of mind just a thought away to reach I never thought that I could enjoy a play anymore After all the movies I have watched in theaters and the flash drives I have filled with pirated versions of films in 720p I wasn’t ready to face this event I was uptight with many thoughts of what could go wrong in the play ‘Will anyone forget their rehearsed lines’ ‘I hope the set is strong enough not to break or fall in the middle of the play’ Honestly I was apprehensive of any damp squib A still from the play Gazab Teri Adaaa (Source: NSD website) Scene – I As the curtain rose the floor fell silent It was supposed to be a 100 minutes play (without any interval) A few breaths later there were drumbeats and a slow narration to provide the backdrop A group of seven women entered the stage from the right and stood in the middle a perfect formation Those initial moments made the impression The play was a tragic comedy pulling emotional chords in a subtle and amusing way The central theme of the play was women revolting against men who were soldiers to stop wars and spoils of wars The women wore traditional saris and were holding bells in their hands They all sang in unison like the birds at dawn at the acme of their might with a mellifluous voice that settles and eases every mind I wondered how DTS or Dolby could produce this extent of reality The males on the other hand were in regal Rajput outfits with appropriate props A still from the play Gazab Teri Adaaa (Source: NSD website) The lithe expressions of the performers were complementing their songs They were swaying with the storyline and their faces wore a hundred masks reflecting every mood There was so much of life on the stage All the characters were in their final enactment after umpteen rehearsals It is a place where the actor cannot go wrong; there is no room for a retake It’s a perfectionist’s play a refined role where the actors relive in a different character for the next hour It is where the skin and costume take a backbench and the expressions demand your exaltation The play had the traditional and indigenous folklore with a tinge of lexicon it was like a slice of the rich past with characters breathing life into it The costumes were reminiscent of the cultural heritage of India It was a perfect ambiance set for a laid-back evening There was a uniformity in the lighting with timely drop of spotlights in between In fact the mild salmon pink hue from the sodium-vapor lights was quite easy on the eyes and even worked well with the costumes The sound was clear and audible with perfect intonations I wasn’t sure about the sound amplification but I believe it was completely natural with a little digital effort maybe A still from the play Gazab Teri Adaaa (Source: NSD website) The match cuts were also quite smooth and connecting Technically speaking the setting seemed perfect for the performers to blend in Meanwhile few montages of the wars were screened intermittently on the projection screen in the background But I couldn’t connect the screen suddenly became a distant relative as the reality in the foreground began to establish a sync to my mind In fact the fast pacing socio-cultural evolution has endangered such art forms where every coming generation is having a far more faint memory of the plays than the one before There is an influx of the demography into the digital age and traditional art forms are becoming a thing of history

she feels romantically inclined is “What will others say” Related News Our society’s most killing missile that prevents us from taking ownership of our lives is to wonder at every step what others will say Nandita a highly educated 24-year-old working woman was telling me that her parents will not object to her possible love marriage Yet they and close family members have overdosed her to be very conscious about whom to choose otherwise “What will people say” Her core investigation of boys and the big dilemma that comes to her mind when she feels romantically inclined is “What will others say” She was expressing that by nature she will not go against her parents in choosing a boyfriend which amounts to following a pre-determined pattern of who should be her ideal husband In India’s contemporary situation she explained in a matter-of-fact way having an affair need not translate to marriage an area that’s not under her control Somehow she was realising her inner emotional content is getting disturbed She said she has time up to age 27 but her conversation became indifferent “With all my restrictions I may fail in a love marriage so I have to depend on my parents to find me a bridegroom” While I was doing some research in an Indian village a farmer’s son told me their two-acre land gave them Rs 50000 while Rs 20000 was spent on input costs With Rs 30000 a year it was impossible to run their seven-member family On his own initiative he bought a small motorbike and became a mobile barber going to people’s houses to earn money This brought him nearly Rs 15000 per month But his relatives wanted to disassociate with him Why Because they are Brahmins and he was “defiling” the family’s image by pursuing a lower-caste job I really appreciate this courageous spirit of today’s young generation not caring about what people say After the research I went to his house and found the family living conditions quite comfortable with the money he brought in He showed me his barber kit His parents were despondent wondering how they would get a Brahmin girl for him because his entrepreneurship was not acceptable in their community My own barrier was not so different When Mr Jacques Gourdon owner of the lithography printshop near Paris very kindly offered me a sweeping job in 1974 I was totally shocked It was unimaginable I was from a Bengali bodhiya family We were extremely poor in India lived in a refugee colony But how could I be a sweeper I’d just arrived in France knew no French was penniless and without any job prospect My growling stomach quickly won over my cultural blocks I de-conditioned my Indian caste conscious baggage and graciously accepted the job But more mental torture awaited me My job entailed taking six big dustbins full of used ink-cleaning cloth and papers out from my printshop to the road at the end of each working day That immediately traumatised me “What if someone saw me” That this instant fear was ridiculous did not occur to me then Just imagine the kind of complex I was carrying in my head Nobody knew me in France then which Indian would see me or even wonder who I was How can any acquaintance or neighbour from my Indian village ever know I was here that I had to be careful of “What will they say” But psychologically I was very disturbed Lots of cars and buses plied on the main road so every time I went outside the door with my dustbins I used to hide my face to not be recognised as a sweeper After some time I discovered this anguish to be totally absurd when I found Mr Gourdon was respectfully presenting me to other artists who came to the printshop as a painter from Calcutta He’d even promote my paintings so I could make some extra money The artists who’d come to the printshop to make their lithographs never looked down at my sweeping work like we tend to do in India That broke my whole misconception of what other people might think I started to boldly say then that my occupation was a sweeper while I was a painter My morale was boosted when fellow students at my Parisian art college appreciated that I worked hard to support my education and livelihood while undermining themselves that they were studying with their fathers’ money So I learnt that worrying about what others will say is the most indecent social education system in our country because it puts you in a cage you cannot break free from Just imagine a cobbler in our country is considered the lowest caste mochi I remember even in my poverty-stricken childhood my grandmother never allowed me to touch the cobbler when he came to repair a broken sandal After he left the place he occupied was cleaned with water Does it mean our cobbler has no chance of becoming a Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo the celebrated shoe designers whose hand everyone wants to shake “Hats off to you You don’t care what others will say” is what people in India often tell me about the bright holiday colours I wear to work to meet top global corporate managers Actually I started wearing such colours in France to differentiate myself from the high-flying CEOs I had to mingle with and didn’t really pay heed to this habit

Advocate was like a blast from the past part glam rock part acid jazz with strong overtones of Purple Haze An outfit like that should come with a free laser and disco ball But Bardhan didn’t let it rattle him Thapar was not his usual intrusive self halting his guest in mid-flow with a suddenly upraised hand and the result was a mighty fine interview Bardhan was polite but candid as always He declared the expectations of the Left (32 Lok Sabha seats up from 24 in 2009) and dismissed the fall predicted by the NDTV poll (18 seats) “Being a student of statistics I know what sort of poll surveys are being done these days” he laughed He diagnosed Manmohan Singh as “a non-functioning non-delivering person a failure as a prime minister” Asked about Rahul Gandhi’s viability he grinned: “Should I comment at all All right another failure” The interview ended there and as Thapar shook hands with him Bardhan said impishly: “Shaking hands on someone’s failure is not good” Before every election when the great and the good become vulnerable political satire becomes as exciting as political news Cyrus Broacha’s The Week that Wasn’t (the title of the programme sends up Prannoy Roy’s

Singh’s office bending both backwards and forwards Beemar Singh queried inscrutably: “Tum karo to tum rangeela hum karen to hum Godzilla” Broacha has also done a face-to-face between Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi in which Modi denied any resemblance between Hitler and himself because “Hitler did not get a clean chit” The skit on Arvind Kejriwal’s visitation of Mumbai is great satire with Broacha explaining why the real aam aadmi of his city does not vibe with the Aam Aadmi Party — because Kejriwal muffed the act He found an auto the moment he stepped out of the airport while the authentic aam aadmi must wait until his children forget what he looks like And he got a window seat in the train to Churchgate while the real thing hangs on in the doorway with his face in someone’s armpit “Please

Srikanth has resurfaced on Indian badminton’s horizon since the surprise of a win over Lin Dan in the China Open final in November 2014 The 24-year-old would win at home in 2015 and dazzle briefly at the Rio Olympics before disappearing like a shooting star making his fans wish that he would get a little more consistent His return might yet be more glorious than his first sighting Here are the 10 things that most don’t know about the newly minted double Super Series champion Ran In Training After 18 It’s hard enough for most at the Gopichand Academy as trainees are put through rigorous routines of lapping different distances of the synthetic track in specific times but it was doubly challenging for Srikanth “It’s because he wasn’t used to running in training till 18 in his childhood He started very late” informs physio C Kiran In the high-intensity workouts Srikanth could hit a heart rate of 180-200 and finish almost breathless Gym reps were easy in comparison Running those 2 to 10 km — time trials after a taxing gym workout are the hardest for India’s top shuttler “Before Olympics he puked and almost fainted in those sessions” recalls coach Gopichand waving away all complaints “Running was hard work for me too in my playing days but it’s gotta be done” Ask the coach if running laps has gone out of fashion replaced by game-specific workouts and he answers “No If you want to win you still run” South Indian Fare Srikanth was driven enough for success to teach himself to wean himself away from anything sweet “In general he just lost the craving for sweets If it’s in a very minuscule quantity and just to taste he is allowed But he disciplined himself pretty early on” Kiran says Never a big fan of fast-food – pizzas or burgers – Srikanth was encouraged to stick to food he had grown up eating “Rice is good When he travels south-east Asian food is his preferred choice” Kiran adds At home it’s whatever his mum makes Dhoni Inspired “It’s one autograph he really wants I think MSD will give it now” laughs brother K Nandagopal explaining the teenaged inspiration K Srikanth loves his aggressive attacking smashing but has always admired the former India cricket skipper’s temperament “I don’t know if I’m as cool as him but I want to be I love the way he believes in himself and backs himself in the big important moments” Srikanth says It’s the restrained no-antics aggression why he’s a Roger Federer fan too “It’s about how Dhoni conducted himself in tough situations” the brother adds “Srikanth always wants to respond the same way that Dhoni did when the situation was not in his hands He has a cool dignified way Srikanth thinks” Inside Box Treatment PV Sindhu had suffered a freak foot injury before the Olympics and had spent her time recovering by sitting inside a marked box and hitting shuttles working on every other part of the upper body “That experience helped us when Srikanth suffered his right ankle stress fracture” Gopichand says “The credit for his injury recovery goes to the physio Kiran who didn’t let him go home when he got injured Like Sindhu we made him sit inside the box and play He used his injury period to get physically stronger in fact” he adds But the support staff didn’t back off from high intensity training while the ankle healed “What takes 6-8 weeks to come out from in his case took 3 months” Kiran says No Clutter Thinking Closely linked to the injury rehab was Srikanth’s absolute faith in his coaching staff Gopichand has long maintained that one reason for Srikanth’s success is he doesn’t over-think even when he’s down “He doesn’t try to make too many decisions on his own off-court When athletes get injured they’ll cross-check with many doctors or try for quick-fix” Kiran says Srikanth trusted his team Tournament routines too are designed to ensure this “Warm-ups matches recovery sessions and evening recovery is all planned so that he’s kept busy and doesn’t over-think – not about the last match and not too much about the next one” the physio informs Aside of the night’s sleep there’s only two hours in the day when he’s not doing something “Oh but that’s when he’s having lunch or dinner” Kiran wickedly informs Patching Body Together Srikanth always played the aggressive game as a junior but his body couldn’t take the strain for more than 15 minutes He survived lower levels on this cloud-burst of attack but found it tough at the Super Series level A 3-year-plan was set into motion“We worked on strength and endurance and stabilised the body but his movement became slower Then the next year was movements and finally injury prevention” Kiran says It was risky training initially but for all the imbalance of the body position when playing strokes it was what was needed The strokes that he initially played using proximal areas – chest back thighs the coaches slowly moved to the calf and forearm The Big Smash While the overhead jump smash of K Srikanth is a work of art most of it was a natural talent the finishing though needed an injection of strength It’s not just the speed of the smash or the ferocity or proclivity but the angles on the smashes “There’s straight cross a smash with 80 percent power and 100 percent Though we can’t tell from the action what he’ll hurl next we can guess based on his mindframe” Kiran says Facing Two Imposters The most common line brother Nandagopal has heard Srikanth say is “For everything my time will come” The older sibling is thoroughly impressed with how the younger one deals with the equanimity that Srikanth shows dealing with failure and success “He says he can’t bring time back So best to prove to the world whatever he’s trying to in the next tournament” he says “He’ll enjoy the moment and not carry it forward After the loss in Singapore murmurs had begun that Srikanth would never match his heady results of 2014-15 “He doesn’t take any criticism personally His mental clarity is brilliant” the brother adds Patience & Consistency “There’s a difference in the two” Nandagopal insists It’s not about consistency in results The big lesson from Olympics was how small mistakes at 20-19 cost him so many matches Against Chen Long on Sunday he turned the tables “He’s learnt to not rush And wait for opponent to make mistakes” he adds Besides not giving Chen Long a chance to attack Srikanth ensured accuracy of his smashes was clinical and it’s all those sprayed kills from the Olympics and the Singapore Open final that have cured his impatience “They have no option but to learn this lesson” Gopichand says “Sindhu shouldn’t have rushed against Tai Tzu You need to keep reminding them this There’s a subtle difference between overdoing attack and getting it right” At 70 Percent “He’s operating at 70 percent of his capacity right now” the coach says “There’s a half dozen contenders at World Championships but after Australia Srikanth will be the marked man” For all the latest Sports

It is on India’s western border (and until 1971 was also on the eastern border) It cannot be wished away; nor can India pretend it will go away On the very day the two countries became independent they inherited a clutch of problems that was the inevitable result of Partition I know of no example in history where two countries born out of a division of land lived in peace ever after Learn and forget History also teaches us that such countries must learn to live with each other and the only way to peaceful co-existence is to talk to each other If that means talking to each other every day or every week or every month so be it That lesson was learnt and forgotten and relearnt many times since 1947 Every government in India — and needless to say every government in Pakistan — was guilty on that count The period after the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 was a particularly difficult period It was akin to the post-war situation in 1965 1971 and 1999 In a sense it was worse because it brought the conflict from the borders to the heart of India The mood in India was bitter and implacably opposed to Pakistan: no to talks no to exchanges no to cricket no to everything The Government could not ignore the anger among the people; yet there was no way forward but to negotiate the hurdles and find a way to engage with Pakistan The UPA governments (first and second) tried to do that and got mixed results Fast forward to 2013 Enter Mr Narendra Modi He had adroitly positioned himself as the alternative to Mr L K Advani who was increasingly seen as not a winner He had also successfully positioned himself as the alternative to the Congress party Within the BJP it was Mr Modi versus Mr Advani In the country as a whole it was Mr Modi versus Congress Such positioning required a new rhetoric laced with hyperbole that presumably reflected the mood of the people It is here that Mr Modi scored over every other political leader in the country Modi on talks with Pakistan In the context of Pakistan let me recall some of the statements that he made in 2012 and in the run-up to the elections in May 2014 On December 12 2012 Mr Modi said “Delhi is working behind the scenes keeping people in the dark and making a deal with Pakistan” At Tiruchirappalli Tamil Nadu on September 26 2013 Mr Modi said “Pakistan army can behead Indian soldiers Still the Delhi government eats chicken biryani with the Pakistan Prime Minister in the name of protocol” When the election results were a few days away on May 8 2014 a supremely confident Mr Modi answering a specific question on the Composite Dialogue process said “Is it possible to have a discussion amidst bomb blasts and gun shots So to have a reasonable discussion first the blasts and the gun shots have to stop” The statements evoked both praise and concern They appealed to certain sections that the BJP was trying hard to woo They also raised serious concerns among diplomats and security experts Was Mr Modi setting the bar at an impossibly high level that no talks with Pakistan would be possible during his entire term However Mr Modi surprised everyone by inviting all SAARC leaders including the Prime Minister of Pakistan to his swearing-in It was a political masterstroke and led the world to believe that the rhetoric of the elections would be left behind Is there a strategy In retrospect every assessment was wrong Neither the rhetoric nor the masterstroke was the result of a carefully thought out strategy Much of it was impulsive The months that followed proved that the new government simply lacked a strategy to deal with Pakistan Recall the starts and stops and the twists and turns of the last 18 months Invitations and cancellations and handshakes and cold stares left the world bewildered as they did most discerning observers in India The sum and substance of the last 18 months was that the Government of India had no policy on Pakistan It was also clear that policy-making had been taken away from the Ministry of External Affairs and vested completely in the Prime Minister’s office The Minister had been reduced to Minister for rescuing stranded people Seasoned diplomats had been assigned crucial jobs in Event Management In the last few days the Government has sprung another surprise Despite a 25 per cent increase in infiltrations this year over last year reported by
