The decision was announced late Monday afternoon on the court’s website, and it left Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu wondering if the city should keep fighting the Angels in court.So they’re the LA Angels for at least the rest of the season. They’re also looking pretty good to win in court in November, if the city even fights it that long.Myself, when they do win, I’d like to see them put “Los Angeles” on the roads. And not just because I already worked up a couple concepts for it: Link to post Forums Home It was the city’s lawyers who screwed up. When they wrote the contract with Disney to put money into the ballpark, they included a clause that the name “Anaheim” had to “appear in the name” or something odd like that.After it was signed, they realized the size of the loophole and tried to get Disney to change the contract. Disney turned them down flat, and I suspect the city’s lawyers have been living in fear that someone would find their mistake and exploit it. Which Moreno did. And technically, he’s in full compliance with the contract, which is why the Angels keep winning in court. If Anaheim continues to fight it (and that’s a big if, considering their legal bills are already half a million bucks), I expect the Angels to keep winning until it’s over.Personally, I believe that in a couple years Moreno’ll either work out a new deal with Anaheim or buy them out of what’s left on the contract. I see this name as a strictly temporary situation.

Ravens begin putting together practice squad

first_imgLess than 24 hours after making final cuts to reduce their roster to the 53-man limit, the Ravens welcomed back several players to their practice squad.On Sunday afternoon, Baltimore announced the signings of linebacker Brennen Beyer, wide receiver Jeremy Butler, guard Kaleb Johnson, safety Nick Perry, quarterback Bryn Renner, tight end Konrad Reuland, and offensive lineman De’Ondre Wesley to officially fill seven of their 10 spots on their practice squad.However, the Ravens appear to be on the verge of filling the remaining spots.Waived on Friday, rookie wide receiver Daniel Brown indicated on Twitter that he was joining the Ravens’ practice squad after spending the spring and preseason with them. A punt block and a touchdown reception in the preseason finale in Atlanta helped his cause a great deal.According to multiple reports, the Ravens are also adding former Houston Texans cornerback Charles James to their practice squad. A charismatic figure in HBO’s “Hard Knocks” series this summer, James has also played some running back and has ability as a returner, which could lead to him getting a long look in practices. The third-year defensive back and Charleston Southern product also posted via Twitter that he was joining the Ravens, but nothing had been made official as of Sunday afternoon.The Ravens saw two of their former players claimed by other teams on waivers Sunday as cornerback Asa Jackson was awarded to the New York Giants and rookie guard Robert Myers was assigned to the Indianapolis Colts. Baltimore was not awarded any players off waivers on Sunday.last_img read more

Emma Gonzalez brings March for Our Lives rally to an emotional silence

first_img Related ABCNews.com(WASHINGTON) — Emma Gonzalez, a leading and powerful voice in the movement spawned by the mass shooting at her Florida high school last month, brought hundreds of thousands of passionate protesters at the March for Our Lives rally in the nation’s capital to a complete silence Saturday afternoon. The 18-year-old student activist, who survived the shooting that claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, addressed the crowd by first reading the names of the students and educators who were killed in the Feb. 14 massacre. And then, for more than 4 minutes, Gonzalez — tears streaming down her cheeks — went silent and stone-faced. The protesters went somber at first, before breaking into the powerful silence with chants of “Never Again!” “Never Again!” Gonzalez’s pause represented the time it took the alleged shooter, Nikolas Cruz, to carry out the shooting.A timer went off, breaking Gonzalez’s silence.“Since the time that I came out here it has been 6 minutes and 20 seconds,” she said.“The shooter has ceased shooting and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape and walk free before arrest,” she said, referring to Cruz. “Fight for your lives before it’s someone else’s job.” The March for Our Lives demonstration drew not only hundreds of thousands of protesters to Washington, D.C., but also to rallies in cities across the United States and around the world. The organizers called on politicians to enact gun reform in the wake of mass shootings in schools and elsewhere. Cruz allegedly walked into his former high school, killing the 17 victims and injuring several others. He was arrested after the shooting, and has since pleaded not guilty.Gonzalez was one of the final speakers at the Washington, D.C., rally. Before her silent gesture, she seemingly spoke directly to victims of gun violence, especially those who survived the shooting at her school.“Everyone who was there understands. Everyone who has been touched by the cold grip of gun violence understands,” she said. “For us, long tearful, chaotic hours spent in the scorching afternoon sun were spent not knowing.“No one understands the extent of what happened,” she continued. “No one could believe there were bodies in that building waiting to be identified for over a day.”She said her friends and classmates would never do the mundane things they did before the shooting, or would never realize their dreams.“My friend Carmen would never complain to me about piano practice,” she said. “Aaron Feis would never … Joaquin Oliver would never … ,” naming each of the 17 victims.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Ramil de Jesus: La Salle morale ‘really down’ after loss to UP

You’re on your own out there.”“You’re by yourself, you don’t have someone guarding you. That’s a big factor for a team and how it can impact the whole team’s performance.”And it was a service error that practically doomed the Lady Spikers against UP.Trailing 23-19, Lourdes Clemente came up to the baseline to start what would’ve been La Salle’s offense but her service attempt went so low that it went under the net putting UP at the 24-19 match point.ADVERTISEMENT Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netANTIPOLO CITY—De La Salle’s seemingly impenetrable fortress has started to show its cracks.The Lady Spikers rarely lose a season series and they don’t often drop their third game until the final match or two of the tournament but such is the predicament of the defending champions in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament.ADVERTISEMENT Clemente, overall, committed five service errors, Aduke Ogunsanya, Marionne Alba, and Jolina Dela Cruz had three apiece while Tin Tiamzon, Desiree Cheng, and May Luna each had one.“That was the big factor in the third set, we still carried our mistakes from the previous sets,” said De Jesus. “We never recovered, and the we didn’t regain our confidence.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next NorthPort ends skid, routs TNT Sarah Geronimo’s ‘Tala’ enters Billboard’s world digital song sales chart Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Tim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’ LATEST STORIES Comelec assures no disruption in operations with retirement of execs View comments Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

CUREkids Launches STEAM Building Blocks Enrichment Program

first_imgCUREkids is gearing up for the exciting launch of its STEAM Building Blocks Enrichment (CSBBEP) Program for underserved children. The launch will take place at Cyber-Ed Christian School of Excellence, opposite the South African Embassy, Sophie Road, Congo Town on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The CSBBEP program is based on collaborative, real-life problem solving activities to help children explore the world around them. Targeting kids ages 6yrs- 12yrs, CUREkids founder Amanda Hill says that is a perfect age range to embrace science and technology. “STEAM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. We believe our kids will one day be the architects and engineers building the infrastructure and skyline of a prosperous Liberia,” she said. During activities, the kids will be paired with local college students pursuing a STEAM degree or graduates of TVET (Technical Vocational Education Training) schools. The children will experience real life application of what they learn on field trips with volunteer STEAM professionals. METS Afrika4d, a mobile STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) lab will engage the kids in STEAM activities during the launch. Captain Raynold Mitchell, the CEO of Liberty Aviation Group located at Spriggs Payne Airport is enthusiastic about the program and looks forward to being a CUREkids volunteer. He says as a child, he discovered his love for flying and desire to be a pilot while watching planes lift off from Spriggs Payne Airport. He says “It is only when access and opportunity are given to children do they know they can become pilots or anything they want to be.” Monrovia City Mayor Clara Doe Mvogo, who is also a devoted supporter of CUREkids, will participate in the launching of CSBBEP. She says science was her first love and she pursued it with passion as an adolescent. “More children need to understand science and technology and how it affects everything in their world,” she said. CSBBEP will include volunteer motivational speakers who will teach the children how to advocate for themselves in all settings. “And because so many kids in Liberia grow up not knowing what direction to take in life,” Hill says, “our motivational speakers along with the CSBBEP curricula should give them a map that will get them to a destination that enriches their community, country, and the world.” According to her, CUREkids was designed and CSBBEP developed to provide Liberian children the opportunities and tools to mentally remove the shackles of poverty from their spirit and realize the greatness in them and their nation. “CSBBEP with its focus on science, technology, art, and team building activities will develop inspired little problem solvers to affect change in their immediate environments. It is an exciting time to be a child in the 21st century and Liberian children should be active participants,” she says. The CSBBEP is sponsored by Jhpiego, Monrovia City Corporation, Cyber-Ed School of Excellence, Petro Trade, Murphy Logistics, Project Liberia, LIBTELCO, Pan African Engineering Group and METS Afrika4d. CUREkids stands for Care, Understanding and Respect for Exceptional Kids. Amanda Hill can be reached at info@curekidslib.org.
