TCU head coach Gary Patterson said Turpin’s passion helps fuel the success on gameday.“Turp just loves to play the game,” Patterson said. “You put him out there in front of people and he loves to play.”Saturday, Turpin totaled 169 return yards, including a career-long 64-yard kickoff return with less than a minute to play in regulation, putting TCU in field goal position for a potential win against the Arkansas Razorbacks.“Turpin is everywhere and he’s one of those guys who you can’t quantify by size what he means to a football team and what he does,” Patterson said.Turpin tied a career high with seven receptions for 126 yards while recording a career-best 3695 all-purpose yards. He averaged 22.7 yards each time he touched the ball.Turpin leads the Big 12 in punt return average (28.8 yards) and kickoff return average (34.0 yards). He also leads the nation in all-purpose yards (236.0 yards per game). He is the only player nationally to rank in the top five in both categories, placing second in punt returns and fifth in kickoff returns. Turpin also leads the Horned Frogs with 14 catches. His own personal record has been tied with seven catches in each of TCU’s first two games.Patterson compared Turpin to former TCU wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, who Monday night led the San Francisco 49ers with seven receptions for a team-high 61 yards in the team’s victory against the Los Angeles Rams. The Horned Frogs face the Iowa State Cyclones Saturday at 11 a.m. in Amon G. Carter Stadium.

The fair was officially opened by Chilean president Sebastián Piñera, who expressed his gratitude for “the arrival of cargo planes from abroad (with humanitarian aid), the donation of resources in cash by the exhibitors, and the donation of the entrance fees for this fair.” The planes flew from the United States to Chile without stops and were refueled in the air by U.S. Air Force tanker planes. They have the capacity for radar invisibility and are expected to be the fighter planes of the next fifty years. By Dialogo March 25, 2010 The fair’s star attraction is the U.S. F-22 fighter plane, known as the ‘Raptor.’ Two of these planes, valued at more than 200 million dollars each, arrived for the exposition.

He noted that the entrance fees collected over the weekend, when the fair will be open to the public, will be turned over in full to the victims of the earthquake and seaquake of 27 February.

Associated Press Shortly after Dhoni’s announcement, former India all-rounder Suresh Raina also said he was retiring from international cricket “It was nothing but lovely playing with you (Dhoni),” Raina, a Chennai teammate, wrote on Instagram. “With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you in this journey. Thank you India.” As well as 18 tests and 78 T20s, the 33-year-old Raina played in 226 ODIs, where he averaged 35 with the bat, including 36 half-centuries and five 100s, and took 36 wickets. ___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Under his stewardship, India won the T20 World Cup in 2007, the 50-over World Cup in 2011 on home soil, which he spectacularly clinched off his own bat with a six, and the Champions Trophy in 2013. The team also reached the top of the test rankings in 2009 under his leadership.Current top-ranked ODI batsman Virat Kohli, who succeeded Dhoni as India captain, paid an emotional tribute to one of the modern game’s greatest players. “Every cricketer has to end his journey one day, but still when someone you’ve gotten to know so closely announces that decision, you feel the emotion much more,” Kohli said on a social media post. “What you’ve done for the country will always remain in everyone’s heart, but the mutual respect and warmth I’ve received from you will always stay in mine. The world has seen achievements, I’ve seen the person. Thanks for everything skip. I tip my hat to you.” Fitting the impact Dhoni had on the international stage, the broader cricketing world also took to social media to praise and reflect on Dhoni’s decorated 15-year career at the highest level.

From 1929 hours consider me as retired,” the 39-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman posted on his Instagram account.The news came as he joined his Chennai Super Kings teammates ahead of next month’s Indian Premier League tournament which will be held in the United Arab Emirates because of the coronavirus pandemic. India great Dhoni retires from international cricket “Congrats on a wonderful cricketing career,” said Australian great legspinner Shane Warne. “Was a pleasure watching you play & the way you led your troops too. Good luck with everything you choose to do in the future ! Absolute legend.”Former England captain Michael Vaughan also took to Twitter saying “the 2011 World Cup win was Tendulkar’s farewell but masterminded by MS Dhoni. What an incredible international career. You could argue the greatest ever white ball captain & finisher. Cheers for all the memories MS.” In tests, Dhoni made 4,876 runs with the bat, averaging 38.

A Donegal County Councillor has said ongoings issues with poor phone coverage in a south Donegal village should be rectified within days. Concern has been raised locally in Malin Beg over the continuous lack of signal strength in the area, with Community First Responders prohibited from being contacted in the area due to the lack of coverage.However, Cllr Niamh Kennedy said funding had been granted and workers would be addressing the issue imminently. She told Donegal Daily: “This has been going on for years now, which is far too long, and you can understand why people in the community are so upset over this issue.“Funding has been sought and granted and the (Donegal County) Council have granted permission for them to carry out the work and a contractor has been appointed.“It should take two or three days for the work to be completed and we are just waiting for them to arrive any day now.“They are going to erect the mast in the old school and that should finally sort the problem. “I am just waiting on an actual date from the council and I have been working on this for such a long time, so I will be happy for the people of Malin Beg to get this long-overdue work completed.“And it is first of its kind in the country, the way we are doing it, where the local community, a local councillor, local authority and government department are all getting involved.”Meanwhile, funding had been granted to the local community recently for extra defibrillators, but Cllr Kennedy said they were of no use if the emergency services or first responders could not be reached.She continued: “It is a huge concern for the area (that emergency services cannot be contacted) and it would have been one of the presentations that Donegal County Council would have made to the Department of Communication in regards to Malin Beg.“We had a situation where the doctor refused to come into the area because they couldn’t be contacted so the patient would need to go to the local surgery rather than the doctor coming out. “And it is the same with the Silver Strand beach,” she added. “If anything was to happen, it is 200 steps down to the beach and there is simply no coverage.“It was getting that bad that there was a consideration in the area to get a phone box because people didn’t want to be annoying people in their homes if something did happen.“But it is definitely on the way and the community should be assured of that after an awfully long wait.”Poor phone coverage in Malin Beg to be rectified within days was last modified: August 21st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
28 September 2015Government wants to engage more actively with South African youth, using the pillars of the National Development Plan (NDP) to highlight and solve challenges in unemployment, education and social cohesion.Minister Malusi Gigaba during the Governance and Administration Cluster Media Briefing #GABriefing pic.twitter.com/oo77kpqfda— GCIS Media Liaison (@GCISMedia) September 27, 2015Home Affairs minister Malusi Gigaba stated government has partnered with youth organisations and business to make sure youth development is prioritised.At a media briefing of the Governance and Administration Cluster on Sunday 27 September 2015, the Minister said the partnerships were formed to alleviate the challenge of youth unemployment.Presidential Youth Working Group“President Jacob Zuma launched the Presidential Youth Working Group in June 2015, to promote youth participation in governance and policymaking and to mainstream youth development and empowerment in the work of government, to build a better life for young people,” Minister Gigaba said at the briefing.“In the work of the Presidential Youth Working Group, the Department of Performance, Monitoring and Evaluation, the following work streams have been established: Economic Participation and Transformation Education; Skills and Second Chances; Health Care and Combating Substance Abuse; Nation-Building and Social Cohesion, and Effective and Responsive Youth Development Institutions.”The Minister’s statement comes after Minister in the Presidency, Jeff Radebe, accompanied by Deputy Minister Buti Manamela, signed the National Youth Policy in Khayelitsha, in the Western Cape in August this year. This policy framework, which was signed after a lengthy consultative process, also identified partnerships with all sectors of society as a way of advancing youth development.Minister Gigaba said that the strategies of the Presidential Youth Working Group’s work streams would form part of the Integrated Youth Development Strategy and progress will also be included in the MTSF for proper monitoring and evaluation.“The process to amend the National Youth Development Agency Act, 2008 (Act 54 of 2008), is ongoing, with a draft Bill currently with the State Law Advisors,” the minister said.Interventions to fast-track NDP implementationMinister Gigaba said interventions had been implemented to assist in fast- tracking several NDP imperatives, including growing the economy with an appropriate and healthy Growth Domestic Product (GDP) rate, as well as creating jobs and eradicating poverty and inequality.He said these were implemented using government’s Medium Term Strategic Framework 2014-19, which Cabinet adopted last year.“The current initiatives to stimulate growth include government’s Infrastructure Build Programme, the War Room on electricity, Operation Phakisa on the Ocean Economy and in Mining, and the Nine-Point Plan to boost economic growth and create jobs,” the minister said. He also stated that there were other reports showing success linked to the implementation of the framework.A recent report on education and skills development showed that tremendous progress was made in the education sectors which continue to be a priority area of focus.While with rural development and land reform, progress on land acquisition for smallholders has been slow, but government’s implementation of programmes are being reviewed and strengthened to resolve some of these issues.Health care, crime and social cohesionMinister Gigaba said in regards to health care, South Africa has received worldwide recognition for its HIV and Aids programme, which has over three million people initiated on treatment, contributing to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals.“Good progress is being made under safety and security, regarding the reduction of overall levels of serious crime,” he said, “the department is implementing Operation Fiela (Reclaim), to rid our country of illegal weapons, drug dens, prostitution rings and other illegal activities.”“This multidisciplinary, interdepartmental operation is contributing to the safety and security of our communities,” the minister concluded.Source: SAnews.gov.za

I tip my hat to him.”Butler may have only spent a season with Bryant in Los Angeles, but he had a fruitful run with theLakers, averaging 15.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.4 steals in the 2004-2005 season. Though he was traded after the season to Washington, that was enough for the 6-foot-7 forward to sign a 5-year, $46-million deal with the Wizards as he, Gilbert Arenas, and Antawn Jamison formed the team’s “Big Three,” with Butler providing the toughness that earned him the nickname, “Tough Juice.”Looking at today’s NBA, Butler is glad to see that most of the superstars exemplify the same grit he had back in his heyday.“Russell Westbrook is relentless, aggressive, and he plays at an unbelievable pace. Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, and Kevin Durant are also some who have that ‘tough juice.’ Lebron James shows no signs of slowing down. There’s a lot of amazing talent in the league right now and I could go on forever,” he said.It shouldn’t come as a surprise, too, that these are the guys who Butler believes are capable of winning the Most Valuable Player award this year.“Lebron, KD, and Harden are my safe bets. If we’re gonna go out of the box, it’s Kyrie Irving and John Wall. But my wild card off the left field, it’s Blake Griffin,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ PBA: Alaska staves off elimination, shackles Globalport NATO’s aging eye in the sky to get a last overhaul Caron Butler could only smile as he looked back on his 14-year NBA career.ADVERTISEMENT Though much of Butler’s prediction coincides with the mainstream opinion, the Racine, Wisconsin native, though, offered one wild guess.“Houston’s gonna win the Western Conference,” he said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
