Carolina PanthersThe Panthers look like they might be down with a healthy Cam Newton for Matt Rhule and Joe Brady after all. So this can happen only if the Panthers would trade Newton and create a clear starting vacancy. Carolina doesn’t seem locked into taking a quarterback early and Winston’s downfield passing skill set can mesh well with Brady’s scheme. The chance of Winston playing for another NFC South foe is slim, but if the Panthers quickly go from “maybe” to “out” on Newton, then Winston could make sense as a successor.Tampa Bay BuccaneersWinston’s best “landing spot” is where he already is. As much Arians doesn’t like the interceptions, he needs a big-armed aggressive passer to execute his scheme. Bridgewater or Brady would take away some of the upside in stretching the field with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard and others. Those other free-agent moves could be made to bolster the D, as an improved Bucs defense can be a big factor in 2020, and they can also upgrade the running game to better support the QB.The Bucs will likely want to see what all of their options are before thinking about circling back to Winston. When the dust settles, led with Brady finding new home, there’s a chance Winston still represents Tampa’s best QB solution going forward. MORE: If Tom Brady were the Bachelor, who’s getting a rose?The Bucs have several alternatives in mind, ranging from the Saints’ Teddy Bridgewater to the Patriots’ Tom Brady. Joining them and Winston in a veteran game of musical chairs are Philip Rivers and Ryan Tannehill. There’s a chance that when the music stops, Winston may need to settle for needing to prove himself again in a backup role, like ’15 draftmate Marcus Mariota might have to.But terms of starting gigs, here’s exploring the five most logical teams that can provide Winston with a solution:MORE: Odds on where Winston will signIndianapolis ColtsThe Colts have been attached most to Rivers as a potential replacement for Jacoby Brissett. But Rivers, a fellow fearless downfield slinging quarterback, is a dozen years older than Winston. Also, Rivers was much less productive while having much of the same inefficiency in 2019. Rivers can be only a short-term answer, while Winston, with his upside, can be the long-term successor to Andrew Luck.Frank Reich and Nick Sirianni form a good offensive braintrust to get the best out of Winston by helping him curb his turnovers in a less high-risk passing game. The Colts also have ample salary-cap space and a good haul of draft picks to make much-needed improvements to the receiving corps to further boost Winston.Los Angeles ChargersRivers’ former team has intrigue as well for Winston, because it looks less likely that Brady will be headed to LA. The Chargers, like the Colts, can also see Winston as being a younger version who can be tailored to make fewer mistakes in their offense with Anthony Lynn and Shane Steichen at the helm. Between Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Austin Ekeler and likely to be re-signed tight end Hunter Henry, the Chargers have the skill support to settle Winston.The Chargers could avoid free agency for this position and simply roll with Tyrod Taylor, most likely as a bridge for a high-drafted QB. But if they look to sign a veteran to start, with Bridgewater and Brady likely out of play for them, Winston makes a lot more sense for them than either Rivers or the play-action dependent Tannehill.Miami DolphinsWinston can’t be ruled out for a relocation within Florida. The Dolphins have Ryan Fitzpatrick, with whom Winston toggled as the Bucs’ starting QB in 2018, for one more year. The Dolphins could look at Fitzpatrick as a possible bridge for a first-rounder as well.Going the Winston direction would indicate the Dolphins believe in him as more than just a stopgap, given his age. Miami’s new offensive coordinator, Chan Gailey, has had success working with different types of quarterbacks over the years. With DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and tight end Mike Gesicki, Miami’s receiving corps already carries more upside than you think before it adds another weapon.Chicago BearsIn this scenario, the Bears, in the market for a backup quarterback, would sign Winston at that price point to both replace free agent Chase Daniel and compete with Mitchell Trubisky. Much like Tannehill replaced a shaky Mariota, Winston would have a good opportunity to displace Trubisky, but he would need to accept a lesser, short-term contract should all the other direct starting spots become filled.Based on supply and demand, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Winston perceived more in the Mariota/Case Keenum tier of free agent QBs. This would be his best shot to prove himself again and prove those perceivers wrong. Jameis Winston is only 26 and is coming off a season in which he passed for a career-high 33 TDs and 5,102 yards. But by also throwing a NFL-high 30 interceptions, he’s put his league status as a starting quarterback in doubt for 2020.His current team, the Buccaneers, haven’t been motivated to re-sign him, despite his pedigree as the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He’s likely to move on, but “the where” is the biggest mystery to be solved in an unusually loaded QB free-agent market.

“So I come through with a lot of injuries this year with my knee, a lot of issues. But thank God I come through, and we’re here. I’m very excited to have the win.”– ‘It was a great job’ –After knee and ankle injuries, Nunez had his magical moment.“When you’ve got a guy like him on the bench, it’s a weapon for us. And when he’s going well, we all seem to go well,” Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi said. “It’s not easy to come off the bench and pinch-hit, especially when it’s (cold). It was a great job.”Cora appreciated how much the moment meant.“As a baseball man, that was sad to see last year. He changed the complex of the Red Sox. He carried this offense and put this team in a different dimension. And he got hurt and only one pitch in the playoffs, and then he was out of it,” Cora said.“For him to show up today and put up a big swing, that’s his first World Series swing, it’s very gratifying to see him do that.” LATEST STORIES View comments Boston Red Sox’s Eduardo Nunez reacts after hitting a three-run home run during the seventh inning of Game 1 of the World Series baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018, in Boston.

…outline security plans for ChristmasThe Guyana Police Force on Monday said the crime rate in Berbice has been reduced by 42 per cent. According to the GPF, serious crime has shown a decline over the past year; between January 1 and October 21, 2017, Police have recorded 236 incidents of serious crime, and for the corresponding period this year, the record shows 199 incidents. Murders for the period under review in 2017 were 24, as against 17 this year.Deputy Commander, Superintendent Wayne De HaarteWhile robbery under arms incidents wherein guns were used moved from 24 to 32, a 30 per cent increase, robberies under arms wherein instruments other that guns were used showed a steep decline, with seven recorded this year as against 27 for the corresponding period last year. Break and enter and larceny also showed a significant reduction, from 168 in 2017 to 68 in 2018. Robbery with violence, according to the GPF, also had a decline, moving from 15 to 13.These figures were release on Monday as “B” Division launched its Christmas Policing for 2018. Deputy Commander of “B” Division, Superintendent Wayne De Haarte, told reporters that the division has put in place a number of strategies to make the area safer for residents and visitors during the Christmas period.“We will be having mobile patrols by day and night in the housing and business sectors. Patrols will be deployed in all sectors: vehicular, motorcycle, bicycle, and foot patrols, in the main commercial areas,” he said.These areas include New Amsterdam, Rose Hall Town, Port Mourant, Hampshire, Rosignol, D’Edward, Corriverton and several villages along the Upper Corentyne.Divisional Commander Senior Superintendent Paul Langevine assured that the Division is well equipped with human resources.“We have enough officers,” he said.The Christmas Policing Programme in Berbice will also see mounted patrols in the backlands and roadblocks being maintained on the eastern end of the Berbice River Bridge and at Weldaad Police Station.“Ranks will be detailed to monitor the linking and shopping areas in all sectors, and we will continue our social crime prevention activities within communities,” De Haart has said.“Ranks will be deployed at markets on the following days: New Amsterdam, Mondays to Saturdays; Rose Hall Town, Mondays to Saturdays; Port Mourant, Fridays and Saturdays; Springlands, Mondays to Saturdays; and Rosignol, Mondays to Saturdays.Marine patrols will be conducted in the Berbice River (and in) Canje Creek,” the Deputy Commander has outlined.However, he noted that the Police need the support and cooperation of members of the public to ensure that the Christmas Policing Programme is a success.As such, he urges that during the Christmas period, when persons are shopping or going home from parties, they use a valid taxi service. Business persons who are transporting large sums of money are being urged to do so with effective security. De Haarte noted that any concerns persons have relative to their personal security when they are out shopping could be related to a Police officer on duty, who will be in all the major shopping areas. DeHaarte has said that from now until mid-January, there will be regular vehicular patrols throughout the day and night in all communities. The Divisional Commander expressed confidence that persons who live in Berbice or those who may wish to visit will be safe.“This programme will not achieve its success if we do not get support of the members of the public. Our plan entails a lot of stop-and-search and patrols. We cannot be here, there and everywhere; so we will depend a lot on members of the public. We don’t want citizens seeing things happening and not reporting to us.“Our intention is to get anyone who is bent on breaking the law and making citizens’ lives uncomfortable. Just like how we’re planning, the criminals are planning to take advantage with the increased commercial activity and congestion on the road; so we have to work towards ensuring that their plans are not successful,” Langevine said.

Thirty-two-year-old Kess Brown was on Wednesday brought before Magistrate Faith McGusty at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to the charge of robbery with violence.The welder, who resides at Water Street, Georgetown, denied the charge which stated that on April 19, 2019, at Camp Street, Georgetown, he robbed Sabrina Dugnauth of a handbag containing her driver’s license and cash – a total value of $9000.The prosecution is contending that on April 19, the defendant, while being in the company of another, robbed the Virtual Complainant while she was walking along Camp Street. The court heard that the VC put up a fight but the defendant was very aggressive and hit her.The VC raised an alarm but the man escaped. He was later apprehended by police ranks and the items were recovered.Police Prosecutor Annalisa Brummel objected to bail on the grounds that the defendant is a flight risk. She also stated the serious nature of the offence where personal violence was used.The defendant in a bail application told the court that he is innocent and was trying to assist the VC after witnessing her being robbed. He claimed that the police case is false since no item was found on him. He urged the police to review security cameras in the area. Magistrate McGusty remanded him to prison. The case will continue on May 15, 2019.
LOS ANGELES – Pebbles, a doe-eyed Yorkshire terrier that became a symbol of the national pet food scare, has died while being treated for kidney failure that developed after she ate some of the suspect food. The 7-year-old pooch died early Thursday, her owner Jeff Kerner said Friday. The dog had been treated with intravenous fluids at Sylmar’s Collett Veterinary Clinic for a week. “Although my family loves me, no one ever loved me like that dog,” Kerner, 48, said tearfully over the phone. “Every Web site I go to I see my dog. She was so cute.” Officials said Friday that the toxin aminopterin – used to kill rats in some countries – was found in the food. Pebbles became ill with kidney failure after being fed Nutro foil pouches – a product that was subsequently recalled, Kerner said. The dog’s appetite returned a bit by Wednesday, but her kidney levels were far from normal. A qualified clinic staffer took Pebbles home with her that night and the dog died in bed there, Kerner said. “She could barely stand up when I saw her. She just wanted to lay on me,” he said. “I wish I could have taken her home. … But I’m glad she didn’t die in a cage in the vet center.” Los Angeles County officials have confirmed at least 16 cases of kidney failure in dogs and cats exposed to the recalled food, and at least five of those have died, said Jonathan Fielding, county director of public health. Seventy-five more cases are being investigated, he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
Philippe Coutinho put the visitors ahead inside two minutes before Ivan Rakitic’s spectacular volley doubled Barca’s lead before half-time.Harry Kane and Erik Lamela twice reduced Spurs’ deficit, but Messi made the difference by scoring a double as the La Liga champions withstood a rousing finale from the hosts.Messi means Champions League businessThe Catalans’ domination of domestic matters in La Liga in recent years has been overshadowed by eternal rivals Real Madrid’s romp to three consecutive Champions League titles.Barca set their stall out to end Real’s European reign before a ball was even kicked this season with Messi in his first statement as new club captain after the exit of Andres Iniesta promising to “bring this beautiful cup back home to the Camp Nou”.On the site of two of Barca’s greatest ever triumphs where they won the European Cup in 1992 and 2011, Ernesto Valverde’s men dispelled any doubts caused by a three-game winless run in La Liga.Draws with Girona and Athletic Bilbao either side of a shock defeat by Leganes were partly caused by Valverde prioritising the Champions League with Messi left on the bench at the weekend.Back in the side, the five-time World Player of the Year ran the show, also hit the post twice as his two goals and brilliant first-half finishes by Coutinho and Rakitic earned all three points for the visitors.Messi now has five goals in just two Champions League games this season.Spurs squad exposedTottenham are already paying for the club’s failure to add a single player in the transfer market to a squad burned out by World Cup commitments.From the side that famously beat Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley just under a year ago; Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli were all absent through injury.Beating Barca at full-strength is hard enough, but Spurs simply don’t have the squad depth to compete with the best when so many of their key men are missing.That lack of investment threatens to stall Spurs’ progress under Mauricio Pochettino as having reached the last 16 last season, an early Champions League beckons unless there is a big turnaround after starting with two defeats.Oh no HugoTottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made a huge error to help Barcelona go in front at Wembley© AFP Adrian DENNISThe one injury boost for Spurs appeared to be the return of captain Hugo Lloris in goal for the first time in five weeks.Lloris has endured a troubled time after admitting to drink driving during his absence with a thigh injury.Another poor decision from the French World Cup winner gave his side a mountain to climb as he raced from his goal and got caught in no man’s land when Jordi Alba teed up Coutinho for the opener.Messi could have profited from another erratic Lloris moment, as the goalkeeper ran outside his box just as Spurs got back into the game at 3-2, before the Argentine’s second goal settled matters late on.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lionel Messi was inspirational as Barcelona won a thrilling Champions League clash 3-2 over Tottenham Hotspur© AFP Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 4 – Lionel Messi inspired a return to form for Barcelona in a thrilling 4-2 win at Tottenham that leaves the English side with a mountain to climb to reach the last 16 of the Champions League.Spurs have now lost their opening two games in Group B to fall six points behind Barca and Inter Milan and were left to rue a slow start.
Two people who returned to school after dropping out were featured speakers during today’s launch of LAUSD’s “My Future, My Decision” program, which targets the district’s high dropout rate. Appearing with Los Angeles Unified School District Board President Monica Garcia and Superintendent David L. Brewer III, Jordan High School students Miguel Garcia and Araceli Vasquez urged their classmates to stay in school. “The reason I kept going is I wanted to go to college and be a medical assistant,” said Vasquez, who told her story to reporters in English and Spanish. Now in her fifth year at Jordan High, Vasquez drew a cheer when she answered Monica Garcia’s question about her anticipated graduation date. “In February,” the beaming Vasquez said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityThe soft-spoken Miguel Garcia told the gathering he also is in his fifth year at the school. He said that this time, he won’t stop step off campus for good without having that piece of paper in hand. “I always knew that having a diploma is important,” he said. “I don’t want to have a bad job and be stuck in the streets all my life.” Miguel Garcia and Vasquez wore T-shirts touting the “My Future, My Decision” program, the details of which are available at www.myfuturemydecision.com. Monica Garcia said the LAUSD’s goal is to have every student who comes through the classroom doors as a ninth grader reach their senior year and get a diploma. She said that with “My Future, My Decision,” the district is reaching out to its students in danger of dropping out, or who have already quit school. “You are not alone,” she said. “We know you can succeed when we connect you to our services.” Brewer echoed Monica Garcia’s plea to those students who gave up on getting a diploma. “Come back, come back to school, we have resources for you,” Brewer said. “Do not stay out there and become a statistic in our society.” Those who finish high school on average make $300,000 over the course of their careers than those who do not, Brewer said. Board member Richard Vladovic said the LAUSD is no place for losers. “A winner gets off the ground and overcomes those obstacles,” Vladovic said. “It’s a new day, we’re going to help you be successful.” Marshall E. Drummond, Los Angeles Community College District Chancellor, said his schools are the key to achieving more dreams for those who drop back in and want additional further success. He said money is not an obstacle to college. “We have more financial aid than we can give away,” Drummond said. Debra Duardo, director of the LAUSD’s Dropout Prevention and Recovery Program, said she left school in the ninth grade and had a baby at age 16. But she said she persevered, obtained her first degree from the LACCD and later bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UCLA. “We understand things happen in life,” Duardo said while urging students to not let those setbacks be permanent roadblocks to getting finishing school. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
