Latest Patriots’ win highlights weapons Brady still has

first_img“It’s really not about those things to me. It’s about points,” Brady said after New England’s 38-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night .It was the second straight game the Patriots have scored 38 points. It’s also the second consecutive week that it’s looked like Brady and the offense are turning a corner following a lackluster 1-2 start to the season that included a paltry 10-point effort in a loss to Detroit.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“Ultimately we gotta score more points,” Brady said. “We scored 38, which is great. But we have more in us.”Buoyed by the return of receiver Julian Edelman from his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancers, Brady looked like the reigning regular-season MVP for the first time this season. Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption MOST READ “It was great. There’s some things that obviously we have to work on. But it was good to get out there and catch some rocks and go out there and make some plays and be with the fellas,” Edelman said. “I haven’t played football in like, 405 days or something like that. It was good to be out there with the crowd rocking. It was awesome. It was amazing. It’s great to be back.”DISAPPOINTING STARTWhile the Patriots are finding their footing, the Colts have lost three straight and slipped to 1-4.One of the recurring themes has been self-inflicted mistakes, particularly turnovers. Indianapolis had three more on Thursday.“We’re not going to win consistently until we learn how to get out of our own way,” Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said. “I think when we look at ourselves, we’re going to have to learn how not to lose before we want to give ourselves a chance to win. And so, it’s frustrating, the stuff out there. We’re all frustrated but I don’t think anybody’s losing the belief.”INJURIES PILING UPLuck did his best to keep Indy in the game, even as injuries continue to pile up around him.Indianapolis entered the game with receiver T.Y. Hilton headlining a list of five starters that were sidelined. The Colts added four more key players to that list on Thursday.Linebacker Anthony Walker left in the first quarter with a concussion. Safety Clayton Geathers was initially evaluated for a concussion early in the second quarter, before clearing the protocol. But he remained out with a neck injury. Defensive tackle Margus Hunt (knee) and DT/DE Denico Autry (hamstring) also both had short nights.Coach Frank Reich said the injuries weren’t even discussed entering the game.

Brady didn’t complete more than two passes on an opening drive in any of the team’s first four games.And after an offseason that featured lots of player departures on the offensive side of the ball, Thursday’s victory also highlighted just how many weapons Brady still has at his disposal.Rookie running Sony Michel came up just two yards shy of his second straight 100-yard game. Tight end Rob Gronkowski broke out of a recent fog with six catches for 75 yards. And recent acquisition Josh Gordon notched his first touchdown — Brady’s 500th — showing off his ability as the big-play threat this offense has been missing.Edelman’s return might have simply been an extra cherry on top an already-decadent cake.ADVERTISEMENT New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady signals on the sideline during the first half of an NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, in Foxborough, Mass.

So, we just got to pick up the pieces and I still have a lot of confidence in our players.SLINGING IT AROUNDPerhaps because of all the injuries, Luck is having to carry a lot more of the offensive load for the Colts.Over the last two games, he has attempted 121 passes. According to Elias Sports Bureau that’s the second-most pass attempts in a two-game span in NFL history and the most ever in a five-day span. Philip Rivers holds the record with 123 pass attempts in Weeks 6 and 7 in 2015.MILESTONESColts K Adam Vinatieri missed a 38-yard field goal in first quarter. But it marked his 673rd attempt, passing Gary Anderson for second on the all-time list.Vinatieri made a 54-yarder in the second quarter on his 674th attempt. He now trails only Morten Andersen’s 709 career attempts.With his victory, Brady has now tied Vinatieri for most wins by player in NFL history (226).

Speaker Tyler’s Exit: What Next?

first_imgThe Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alex Tyler, last Thursday stepped aside as Speaker, paving the way for the plenary of the House to be resumed, in order to get on with the nation’s urgent business.For several weeks now the House has been bitterly divided into two factions, each holding a separate session, a situation that is patently unconstitutional. One faction, headed by House Deputy Speaker Hans Barchue of Grand Bassa County, demanded that Speaker Tyler, in the wake of Global Witness report alleging that he had received US$75,000 in connection with the Sable Mining bribery scandal, should recuse himself from presiding over the House until his name was cleared.But the Speaker said the allegations were false and insisted he had done nothing wrong that would warrant his recusal. The Barchue faction, on the other hand, decided that so long as Tyler did not recuse himself, Barchue and his colleagues would not sit under Tyler’s gavel and proceeded to form their own body, with Barchue as chair.The Daily Observer is on record in stating that it would have been more prudent for the Speaker, as well as Grand Cape Mount Senator Varney Sherman, who was also indicted in the Global Witness bribery allegation, to both step aside until their names are cleared. Both, however, declined to do that. Senator Sherman’s Senate colleagues were not so insistent on their Judicial Committee Chairman stepping aside; and so Sherman has remained in office undisturbed.On the other hand, it was Speaker Tyler who has been under tremendous pressure to step aside and his refusal, until last Friday, and the intransigence of the Barchue faction, which insisted on holding their “separate session” because it was unconstitutional and even treasonable, brought the Legislature to a standstill. This came for the entire country at a critical time, when the National Budget for 2016/2017 languished in the divided House because it could not meet as one to act on the budget for submission to the Senate for concurrence.Political observers believe that Speaker Tyler became emboldened to do what he did—step aside—because several members of the Senate late last week threw their full weight behind him, contending that he was the legitimate Speaker of the House and that the Hans Barchue faction was illegal.There is speculation that having reached out to him in his predicament, the Senators developed the political metal to approach the Speaker and plead with him to demonstrate statesmanship to help resolve the impasse in the House.It was at that point that Speaker Tyler came forward and declared that it would be what the Reggae singer Jimmy Cliff called “foolish pride” for him (Tyler) to sit and see the nation “disintegrate into anarchy.” He was, therefore, stepping aside as Speaker.Insisting, however, that a mere indictment is not a guilty verdict, Speaker Tyler said in his statement that his recusal should not be a “sign of weakness.” He accused the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, of having played what he called “an incendiary” (combustible, fire-starting) role in fueling the conflict in the House. Whether or not this is true, the public perception is that her hand was detected in it, given a letter which her Information Minister Eugene Nagbe, who is also the ruling Unity Party’s Secretary General, wrote backing the Hans Barchue faction in the House.Moreover, even some leading members of the Senate have accused their leader, Senate President Pro-Tempore Armah Jallah, of having engaged in what they called “clandestine” dealings with the Executive. These Senators did not stop there. They, too, want their Pro-Temp removed from office.As this Editorial’s heading indicates, the public is wondering ‘what next?’ now that Speaker Tyler has recused himself. Is it automatic that Deputy Speaker Hans Barchue should ascend to the lofty position? Not so quickly, many are saying. Hans Barchue may have his own bogeyman (monster) waiting in the closet to haunt him.

Teenage girl placed in Police lock-ups for 4 days

first_imgA Corentyne, Berbice mother is seeking answers after her 16-year-old daughter was placed in the lock-ups for four days. The mother was also asked to pay $100,000 station bail after the minor was accused of simple larceny.The 16-year-old was locked up since last Friday.According to her mother, Radikha Udho, last Thursday morning, an elderly woman from the village told her that she could not find her US Green Card. She said she went and assisted the elderly woman in the search for her Green Card. The villager then discovered that gold and silver jewellery was also missing.Udho said when she was at the market later that day, she received a telephone call stating that the Police were at her home. She said she went to the Number 51 Police Station to enquire and was told that the elderly woman had accused her daughter of stealing the jewellery.However, on Friday, she took her daughter to the Police station as requested. A statement was taken and the teenager was detained and subsequently placed in the lock-ups.Guyana Times is in receipt of recordings where a Police Officer is heard saying it was the station Sergeant who had set the teen’s bail.Addressing the issue, a senior Police Officer from the Division [B Division] stated the bail required was excessive. The officer said given the circumstances, the officer could have used his discretion. However, after much lobbing, the station bail was reduced to $50,000.Meanwhile, the senior officer told this publication that the matter should have been handled differently and if it was that the teenager had to be detained, it could have been done without placing her into the lock-ups for such a long period.

Wall Street holds gains on hopes of rate cut

first_imgTim Krause, director of risk management at California-based Zecco Trading, agreed that Tuesday’s rally was due to institutional investors being optimistic about a rate cut. However, he’s not entirely convinced the Fed will cut rates, given that it will impact an already weakened dollar – which is now near a record low versus the euro. “The Fed is between a rock and a hard place,” he said. “If they lower interest rates, the dollar will keep getting crushed. If they don’t, the subprime mess will get worse and hurt the housing market.” Though much of the attention was on the central bank, there was some corporate news that influenced stocks. The Nasdaq got a boost due to ImClone Systems Inc., which along with Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. said the drug Erbitux improved the survival rate of lung cancer patients in a late-stage study. ImClone soared $6.97, or 18.4 percent, to $44.90. Bristol-Myers rose 23 cents to $28.23. The Dow, meanwhile, benefited from strong gains in McDonald’s Corp. shares. The fast-food chain, which is one of the 30 companies that make up the Dow, rose $1.61, or 3.2 percent, to $51.76 after reporting that global sales at restaurants open at least a year rose 8.1 percent in August. Boeing Co. also helped the blue chips advance after it was awarded a $1.1 billion U.S. Air Force contract. Shares picked up $2.11, or 2.2 percent, to $97.44. General Motors Corp. rose $1.33, or 4.6 percent, to $30.54 as investors got a glimpse of new models at the Frankfurt Auto Show.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The stock market has been volatile since midsummer, with jitters high about the sluggish housing market and debt aversion causing a standstill in the credit markets and damaging the economy. Last Friday’s jobs report, which showed the first monthly payrolls decline in four years, aggravated those concerns. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s, predicted the risk of a recession in the next six to 12 months has increased to nearly 40 percent from less than 15 percent before subprime concerns began riling the markets. Investors nervous about the U.S. economy slipping into recession got a bit of relief from the Commerce Department’s report on the U.S. trade deficit. The trade gap narrowed modestly in July to $59.2 billion from $59.4 billion in June, thanks to record exports of farm goods, autos and other products. Many economists had anticipated a widening of the deficit. The Dow rose 180.54, or 1.38 percent, to 13,308.39. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 19.79, or 1.36 percent, to 1,471.49, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 38.36, or 1.50 percent, to 2,597.47. Bonds fell as investors withdrew money to buy stocks, pushing the 10-year Treasury note’s yield up to 4.37 percent from 4.27 percent late Monday. The dollar weakened against the euro and British pound, while gold moved higher. NEW YORK – Wall Street rose sharply Tuesday as investors grew more confident that the Federal Reserve will lower interest rates next week, even after its chairman gave no clues about the central bank’s intentions. The Dow Jones industrials rose 180 points. Traders had been hoping Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke would give some indication during a speech to Germany’s Bundesbank about the Fed’s next move. Wall Street is looking for a rate cut to help bolster the U.S. economy and ease problems caused by tightening credit availability. Instead, Bernanke talked about the need for countries around the globe to cooperate toward economic stability. He said “global imbalances” occur when countries run up trade deficits or produce big trade surpluses. “Bernanke didn’t really say anything about interest rates, but at this point the feeling on Wall Street is that it’s mandatory,” said Steven Goldman, chief market strategist, Weeden & Co., speaking about a rate cut. “At this point, the market is pricing in not just one rate cut, but a couple, and that’s helping to stabilize stocks.” last_img read more
