Friday Funnies – George Ford’s Innovative Kick

first_imgFriday Oct 4, 2013 Friday Funnies – George Ford’s Innovative Kick Bath flyhalf George Ford put in another impressive performance in his side’s 33-18 victory over London Irish last weekend. In addition to an outstanding try and four conversions, he even had time to develop an unconventional goal kicking technique. Sadly for George, and despite the crowd’s amusement at what could have been a fairly historic moment, his innovative kick did not meet the IRB requirements for a successful kick at goal.Specifically, it fell short of Law 9.A.2. Kick at goal – special circumstances. (a) If after the ball is kicked, it touches the ground or any team-mate of the kicker, a goal cannot be scored. Ford has been on the radar for several years. In 2009 he was nominated for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year and in 2011 he became the first Englishman and youngest ever winner of the IRB Junior Player of the Year award. He is now putting in top performances at senior level too.During the summer he switched from Leicester to Bath, and since moving away from Toby Flood’s shadow his performances have been making headlines. Some have suggested an England call up may not be too far away. Amongst his admirers is London Irish director, Brian Smith. “He’s tearing up trees at 10 and England are lucky to have him. George has a lot of control, you can see the way players rally round him, he’s a class act. If he keeps playing like this, I don’t think England can ignore him for too long,” said Smith after the match. Despite all the plaudits he has been receiving of late, he is sure to stay grounded. “It’s not all about George. We have lots of people in that back line who can excel,” said Mike Ford, Bath head coach and once England defence coach. Then again he is George’s father. View full highlights of the match, including his great solo try, on page two below this videoPhoto via Onside Images Official highlights of Bath vs London Irish from the Recreation GroundADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Photo courtesy: GoFrogsWomen’s tennis continued its winning ways Friday against the University of North Texas by using its momentum to close out tough sets even when emotions were running high. TCU grabbed the doubles point with victories from Aleksa Cveticanin, Ellie Douglas, Chloe Hule and Stevie Kennedy, but it split sets in the singles round put the Frogs to the test for the first time this season. “Our coaching philosophy revolves around managing momentum, we attempt to take some of the raw emotion out of it,” assistant coach Christopher Williams said. Douglas defeated No. 45 Tamua Kutubidze 7-5 in the first set, but she dropped the second set 6-7(5). Cveticanin cruised past Maria Kononova in a 6-1 victory in the first set, but she fell in the second set 6-7(8). “When it really came down to it, there were some emotions that worked against us in splitting sets for Ellie and Aleksa,” Williams said. “Contrary to that, they did a really good job coming down to it and closing those sets.”Cveticanin sealed the Horned Frogs’ match win in her 6-4 win in the third set over Kononova. Kennedy split sets with No. 102 Minying Liang on court five, but she then found a way to rally for a win in the third set with a 6-4 win. “Stevie did a really good job playing with a lot of resilience,” Williams said. “I’m really proud of her.” Williams also congratulated freshman Kate Paulus for continuing to find a way to use her momentum to both her and her team’s advantage. Paulus secured the first singles point in a 6-1,6-3 win over Nidhi Surapaneni, continuing her streak of dominant singles performances this season. Both Paulus and fellow freshman Mercedes Aristegui have won five-straight singles sets to start the season. “I think staying focused and zoning in on my match and trying to be a good teammate by feeding off of everyone’s energy really helps,” Paulus said.  Addy Guevara was forced to retire on court six, giving the Mean Green its sole point of the match. “It was really tough for Addy. She was playing with a lead quite well and she had to retire,” Williams said.

France didn’t have enough of the crosses to go around. That medal meant a lot to me. I really wanted it and I’m so proud of it. I wear it every day and everywhere I go.”Furlow accepted the Legion of Honor medal for every American soldier who was never so honored.“There are a lot of Troy men who should have gotten this medal,” he said. “This one is for all of them.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Published 7:44 am Thursday, November 3, 2011 Furlow was a member of the Alabama National Guard’s 117th Field Artillery, 31st Dixie Division that was made up primarily of men from the Troy area.“There are only two of us left now, James L. Boutwell who lives in Panama City and me,” Furlow said. “We left on November 25, 1940 and served until 1945. We started out with 155mm guns in North Africa but, when we got to France, we were given split-trail howitzers and later we became an armored battalion. We were in France six months and 15 days and were in conflicts all the way through. Yes, I wanted this medal.”The National Order of the Legion of Honor was established by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 to reward civilians and soldiers and only merit counted.The order remains the most prestigious way in which the French Republic can recognize the merits of those who achieved great things in the service of France. After 66 years and four days, Gerald Furlow finally received the medal that he earned during World War II.Furlow, a Pike County native, received the Legion of Honor medal at a ceremony in Houston, Texas, where he now makes his home.The National Order of the Legion of Honor is the highest decoration in France and was presented to Furlow in lieu of the Croix de guerre, which was one of the major military distinctions in France. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration In the presentation of the medal to Furlow, the French Consul, said that Furlow will wear the title of “chevalier de la Legion d’ Honneur.”“The Consul said that ‘knight’ is a strange title to be worn in the 21st century but that three words summarize the whole concept – virtue, bravery and commitment to a noble cause,” Furlow said.Furlow served in France with the 933rd artillery battalion, which made its way up the Rhone River valley in support of the French 1st Army. The battalion’s first combat position was in the province of Haute-Saoen then on to Vosges, Belfort, Colmar and the Rhine River.During the campaign in France with the French Army, Furlow’s unit received three letters of commendation from various French units. All commendations emphasized the military qualities and the efficiency of the battalion, as well as the comradeship the battalion shared with the French soldiers of the 1st Army. For its actions in support of the French army, the 933rd artillery battalion was awarded the Croix de guerre.The battalion’s campaign in Europe didn’t stop at the French border.“Our battalion moved to Germany in March 1945, and that’s where we stayed until the surrender of the German Army in May 1945,” Furlow said.After completing his military service, Furlow worked for American Airlines as a security officer, then as an accountant and with a company that was building a pipeline from Mercedes, Texas to New York City before going to work with Transcontinental Gas for 33years.Furlow and his wife, Joanne, have one son, David Allen, and three grandchildren.

South Carolina police officers charged with taking bribes to falsify immigration papers

first_imgiStock(SPRINGFIELD, S.C.) — Seven law enforcement officers, including one department’s police chief, were indicted Friday on charges they took bribes to falsify immigration statuses and obtain visas, according to the Department of Justice. Several of the officers were also charged with taking bribes to protect methamphetamine and cocaine traffickers.The indictment was handed down by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina against members of the police department in Springfield, South Carolina, and the county sheriff’s office in Orangeburg, South Carolina.“We will not tolerate the hypocrisy of those who pretend to enforce the law while violating it themselves, all to line their pockets,” Sherri A. Lydon, U.S. attorney for the District of South Carolina, said at a press conference. “We call that public corruption, and we will always call that out.”Springfield Police Department Chief Lacra Sharod Jenkins, the department’s top officer, was charged with conspiracy, visa fraud, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Springfield Officer Allan Hunter Jr. was charged with the same offenses.Four deputies or reserve deputies with the Orangeburg Sheriff’s Office face the same four charges: Carolyn Franklin, Nathaniel Shazier III, Stanley Timmons and James Tucker. Deputy Willie Rogers faces charges of conspiracy and visa fraud, but was not involved in the drug offenses.Excluding Rogers, the other six law enforcement officers face a maximum of life in prison. If found guilty, the defendants would also have to pay back the money from bribes.According to the indictment, the scheme involved fraudulently acquiring U Nonimmigrant Visas, “which are set aside for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse as a result of the crime.” The immigrants must assist police in apprehending the suspect of those crimes to be eligible for the special visas.The attorney’s office said the officers would take bribes to fill out forms with fake information and even falsify entire crime reports.Saurabhkumar Patel, of Orangeburg, South Carolina, and Tarang Patel, of Newport, Kentucky, were charged for paying bribes to officers for the falsified immigration forms.The incidents took place from February 2018 to February 2019.As for the drug charges, officers allegedly accepted bribes 10 different times to protect tractor-trailers that were transporting illegal narcotics, according to the indictment.The indictment says that in addition to taking money, Rogers and Hunter both allegedly accepted gifts of laptops, X-Boxes, and Amazon and Google speakers.
