They have an edge rush that can chase Deshaun Watson and a cornerback in Tre’Davious White who can contain DeAndre Hopkins. They also have two receivers who can burn the Texans short and deep witih Cole Beasley and John Brown.Josh Allen will be confident making plays with his arm and legs, and he will get help from rested rookie Devin Singletary in the traditional running game. For a second consecutive year, the Texans will lose at home in the playoffs as weak division champions.Pick: Bills win 24-17. This will come down to which quarterback, Russell Wilson or Carson Wentz, can improvise better to make their typical clutch plays when nothing seems to be there in the fourth quarter. Wilson has a few more reliable weapons, and the Eagles’ defense is weak enough for him on the back end. The Seahawks will continue their fine track record on the East Coast under Pete Carroll.Pick: Seahawks win 20-17 and cover the spread.Stats of the Week:Week 17 record straight up: 11-5Week 17 record against the spread: 7-9Season record straight up: 170-85Season record against the spread: 134-113Upsets of the Week: 8-8Locks of the Week: 9-7 Seattle Seahawks (-1 1/2) at Philadelphia EaglesSunday, 4:40 p.m. ET, NBCThe Seahawks won their Week 12 matchup in Philadelphia, 17-9. That game was sloppy for both offenses, with the difference being a 58-yard touchdown run by Rashaad Penny. The Seahawks will be without Penny and Chris Carson against a good Eagles power run defense. The Eagles’ offense is limited on targets who can make the Seahawks’ defense sweat downfield, especially if Zach Ertz can’t play. It also will be tough for the Eagles to run on Seattle.

Derrick Henry is a hard running back to stop even when teams commit to doing so because of the Titans’ strong blocking scheme. Stephon Gilmore, coming off a rough coverage outing against DeVante Parker, draws the toughness and quickness of rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown. Ryan Tannehill also is no stranger to facing the Patriots.The problem will be the Titans’ defense. Expect Tom Brady to execute his classic short-to-intermediate passing game well and finish those drives in the red zone. The Patriots might give up some chunk plays to Henry and Brown, but they will tighten up to limit most of the damage to field goals. The New England defense also will force a key turnover or two from Tannehill.Pick: Patriots win 27-23 but fail to cover the spread.  Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints (-8)Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET, FoxThe Vikings match up rather poorly with the Saints, thus the big number against them. The Saints stop the run well even with their defensive injuries up front, and the Vikings’ offense is predicated on getting Dalvin Cook going to facilitate Kirk Cousins in the passing game. And we all are aware Cousins isn’t known as a big-game QB.The Vikings also can’t stop Michael Thomas and the Saints’ receivers anywhere on the field with Drew Brees confidently and accurately spreading the ball. The speed of Alvin Kamara will cause problems for the Vikings’ linebackers. Marshon Lattimore will contain Stefon Diggs to make sure there’s no Minneapolis Miracle in New Orleans, making this a Big Easy win for the home team.Pick: Saints win 27-17 and cover the spread. The 2020 NFL playoffs are here. After making 256 game picks for the 2019 regular season, there are only 11 more picks and predictions against the spread to be made all the way through Super Bowl 54.After going through a tricky slate of games last week, there are only four games to prognosticate for wild-card weekend. That means 12 fewer chances to get games wrong, but also 12 fewer chances to get games right.last_img read more

first_imgAware Founder Gopinadhan Pillai, his wife and principal, Beena Gopinadhan posed with some of beneficial students and their parents. -Presents L$100K to Kissi Town Community SchoolAware International School System, an Indian operated institution in the country on Friday, August 30, 2019 distributed a good number of copybooks, pencils and sharpeners to over 180 students in the Kissi Camp Community School in the GSA Road Community in Paynesville.The school also presented L$100,000 to the Kissi Camp Community School’s administration as part of measure to support salary payment of staffs during the 2019 academic year.Aware founder Gopinadhan Pillai, who distributed the educational materials, said his school was driven by the passion to offer quality education to children, who are the leaders of “tomorrow’s world.”Mr. Gopinadhan said that he believes in providing relevant education for all children regardless of their backgrounds, affiliation, origin, nationality or association.He was accompanied to distribution by his wife and principal, Beena Gopinadhan“In the prevailing circumstances,” Mr. Gopinadhan said “Where the social-economic conditions cannot easily permit us to reach all the children of school-age, we would like to help them.”He also said that they have decided to offer “these little materials as a demonstration of our passion for education.” He then pleaded with the beneficiary students to make the best use of the gifts by progressing in their respective educational sojourns.Reflecting on Aware’s relationship with the Kissi Camp School, Gopinadhan said explained how a few months back, he visited the school campus and saw the need to help the administration and students with some educational materials, as well as some cash in order for the school to function effectively.“I see it important to give back to the community, and also to the people of Paynesville,” Mr. Gopinadhan said.The Indian educator recalled the challenges associated with running a school in Liberia, adding, “This is why the Aware administration decided to to give back to the society as parts of our social and corporate responsibility.”He also encouraged the Kissi Camp School administration to call on him when there are any challenges facing the school.“We are going to make our auditorium available to you to hold any of your school’s programs without paying any money.

Wesseh, praised the Aware family for the gifts, which he described as “a blessing from God, Almighty.” He described the donation as very important and timely, considering the dire economic situation of the country, which is posing financial challenge to the parents in meeting the needs of their children’s education.Early this year, Aware School rehabilitated the Kissi Camp and the Joe Bar five-kilometer roads that connect the corridor of the GSA Community with Paynesville Redlight. The project, according to its implementing partners, will cost US$10,000.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

President stands firm on original nominees

first_imgCJ, Chancellor appointments…refuses to confirm Justices Cummings-Edwards, George to postsPresident David Granger on Wednesday confirmed his unwillingness to confirm the two judges who have been acting in the capacity of Chief Justice and Chancellor respectively since last year, as he declared that he was sticking with his original nominees for those posts even though they have been rejected by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo.President David GrangerThe Guyana Constitution does not allow the President to confirm a substantive Chief Justice or Chancellor without the agreement of the holder of the Office of the Leader of the Opposition.President Granger on Wednesday continued to pour cold water on the criticism that his Government is facing for its inability to strike a compromise with the Opposition Leader on candidates.Justice Yvonne Cummings-Edwards is the current acting Chancellor while Justice Roxane George is acting in the capacity of Chief Justice.The President’s nominee for the post of Chancellor is Justice Kenneth Benjamin and for Chief Justice, Justice Cummings-Edwards.Jagdeo has hinted several times that he was willing to have dialogue to arrive at a more suitable consensus candidate, who would enjoy the full confidence of the entire Judiciary and political corps. Asked whether he was inclined to support Justices Cummings-Edwards and George to be confirmed as the country’s next Chancellor and Chief Justice respectively, President Granger dodged the question, signalling an outright unwillingness to even entertain the idea.“I am inclined to support the Constitution. The Constitution makes it clear, very clear, how the Chancellor has to be appointed. I don’t have the authority to go outside of the Constitution … Everything I have done is according to the Constitution. If other people can tell me what part of the Constitution empowers them, I would like to become aware with them myself.”The Head of State’s comments come on the heels of calls within the Diaspora, the legal fraternity and pressure from the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) to fill the top two posts in the Judiciary, which would restore complete confidence in their remit and the Judiciary’s ability to pilot reforms.President Granger instead is standing by his nominees Justices Benjamin and Cummings-Edwards – for the substantive posts of Chancellor and Chief Justice respectively.Asked further if he intended to replace Justice Benjamin with another nominee, Granger responded in the negative.“I took my time in making that decision, and I am not prepared to throw it out of the window,” he said.Meanwhile, when asked of his intentions to meet with Jagdeo to discuss the matter, the President said, “I have other business to discuss with him: the appointment of the Chairman of the Public Service Commission and some other Commissions and when Parliament gives me those names, I will put all of those on the agenda for the meeting.”Guyana’s last Chancellor was Justice Desiree Bernard, who resigned to join the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) in 2005 and its last substantive Chief Justice was Justice Carl Singh.last_img read more

Baby rescued; woman arrested on kidnap charges

first_imgEL MONTE – A 9-month-old boy and his mother were reunited Sunday after their housemate allegedly abducted him and threatened his mother with deportation if she tried to get him back. Police arrested Artemia Hernandez, 44, on suspicion of kidnapping and child concealment. If convicted, she faces life in prison, authorities said. Hernandez and Veronica De Los Reyes, 20, a Mexican national, shared a home in La Puente when De Los Reyes was pregnant with her son Allen, officials said. Hernandez convinced De Los Reyes that because she was not a U.S. citizen, it would be better to list Hernandez as the child’s mother, detectives said. “She began visiting the baby but wasn’t able to take him from the house,” he said. Batres said personnel from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services helped detectives locate the baby in the day care facility in the 12200 block of Ferris Road. They reunited him with his mother Sunday morning. “We know a lot of people are here illegally,” Batres said. “But when they have a baby here in the U.S., the baby has rights. We are here to help people, not to turn them away.” He added De Los Reyes is not facing deportation. Batres said the child’s father had left De Los Reyes upon finding out that she was pregnant. He said he did not know if Hernandez has children of her own, but said she is a divorcee. There were no signs the child had been abused while separated from his mother, Batres said. bethania.palma@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2393160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Allen was born at Citrus Valley Medical Center – Queen of the Valley Campus in West Covina and was given Hernandez’s surname, said El Monte police Detective Ralph Batres. About two weeks later, the suspect allegedly began hiding him from his mother. Hernandez moved to several cities, including Baldwin Park, El Monte and South El Monte, in an effort to keep De Los Reyes away from her child, Batres said. “When \ wanted the baby back, Hernandez started threatening her, saying she’d call INS and have her deported,” Batres said. He said De Los Reyes learned the suspect was taking the baby to a day care facility in El Monte. last_img read more

Parents worried about staff cuts

first_imgAt Thursday’s meeting, Assistant Superintendent Linda Lowe said the cuts were needed mostly because one special-education class at Granada Middle School was being eliminated due to students moving back to their home schools or on to high school. But parents adamantly opposed any reduction in instructional aides. They said they had previously experienced what it’s like not having sufficient aides available to work in their children’s classrooms. “My child is already suffering from a lack of having aides in the classroom,” parent Kathy Deratany, 44, said during the nearly two-hour meeting. “My son has been lost at school and gotten out to major streets because of a lack of having enough supervision.” Even though the board approved cutting 10 aide positions, Gillentine said only two aides will be immediately laid off. The remainder of the positions are expected to be shifted into spots that should open up next year, he added. Also, there’s a good chance that two more positions may open up before September, officials said. tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955 Ext. 3051 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EAST WHITTIER – Angered by a plan to cut instructional aides in special-education classes next year, dozens of parents in the East Whittier City School District demanded explanations Thursday from administrators. The hastily set up meeting at 9 a.m. was prompted by rumors that 19 instructional aide positions were being axed, as well as complaints from parents that they had been “ambushed” by the school board’s last-minute decision to cut staff. On Monday, board members reviewed an administrative recommendation to cut 19 instructional aide positions from the Severely Handicapped and Resource Specialist Program/Special Day Classes. However, the board voted to cut only 10 positions. last_img read more

Thank you to everyone who voted for us and do call to the Waterfront Hotel for a bowl of our award winning seafood chowder!”Meanwhile world champion Kieran Duey Doherty who is a member of The Food Coast Network, is under no illusions about the benefits that brings.“It’s a great support for anyone working in a food related business in the county and it encourages businesses to collaborate and work towards a common goal of making Donegal famous for good food. Events like the All-Ireland Chowder Cook-Off are great fun, but they also have a serious role to play in helping us share Donegal’s food story with a wider audience and I was honoured to be able to do that when I travelled to Rhode Island.”Michael Tunney, Head of Enterprise in Donegal says The Food Coast is about helping businesses work together to highlight the developing food culture in the county. “The Food Coast Initiative gives new and existing food businesses in Donegal the opportunity to connect with fellow businesses while building the profile of Donegal.
