His status for the Outback Bowl is unclear.Asked what Williams’ illness was, Malzahn declined to specify.“I’m not going to get into all that,” Malzahn said.Asked if the LaPlace, Louisiana native was in some kind of altercation resulting in the apparent injuries to his face, Malzahn again declined to comment.Even if Williams arrives, Malzahn would not say if his top wide out would play against No. 18 Wisconsin.Williams has not stated whether he’ll return for his senior season or declare for the NFL Draft, where he is projected as a second-round pick by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.Auburn (8-4) played Georgia and Samford without Williams, who suffered a sprained right MCL against Texas A&M. Williams returned for the Iron Bowl, making seven catches for 121 yards against Alabama.If the Tigers have to play without Williams again, they’re confident in their ability to overcome the personnel loss.“This foundation has been built on more than any one great player,” defensive tackle Gabe Wright said. “That’s what coach Malzahn always preaches: Auburn was great before and it’ll be great even after you got here.”Even with Williams’ status in limbo, Wisconsin doesn’t plan on changing its game plan.“It won’t change our preparation,” Wisconsin athletic director and interim coach Barry Alvarez said. “I’ve always believed that you worry about yourself and you worry about what you do and you try to get your team to execute well and play well. Then see where it goes from there.”Williams provided Auburn a big, reliable target over the middle at the split-5 role in Malzahn’s Hurry-Up, No-Huddle offense. Melvin Ray (seven receptions for 177 yards) filled in for Williams when he was injured, making catches of at least 18 yards against Texas A&M, Georgia and Samford.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Him, myself, we have other people that can fill in that position and do other things.“We’ve been doing the exact same thing if he were there. Nothing in the game plan has changed.

Fewer fireworks heard in city

first_imgAlthough the council had sought to lift the ban, members backed off that proposal after receiving numerous complaints from residents opposed to fireworks sales. Four teams of two officers specifically assigned to combat fireworks began patrolling Whittier on June 28 and continued through July 4. The teams issued 12 citations on Wednesday and 10 during the previous six days. Those cited face fines of up to $1,000 each. The Police Department also received 244 calls reporting fireworks during the past week, including 115 on Wednesday. WHITTIER – A police crackdown on Fourth of July fireworks resulted in 22 citations and an overall feeling among city officials that fewer residents violated Whittier’s fireworks ban, officials said Thursday. While the number of citations issued to residents for firing off fireworks was up from five last year, Officer Diana Salazar of the Whittier Police Department said officers in the field reported fewer people shooting off fireworks. “It seemed to me like it was less,” said City Councilman Greg Nordbak. “It also appeared that most of those going off were safe and sane. And most of those people took it to their back yard.” A 20-year city ban on all fireworks, including the “safe and sane” types sold legally in some nearby cities, including Pico Rivera and Montebello, was upheld earlier this year by the City Council. Salazar said it’s difficult for police to catch people actually breaking the fireworks law. “You have to catch people in the act,” she said. “You’ll see fireworks in the street, but there’s nobody lighting them. That makes it difficult to pinpoint who the person is.” After deciding to continue the 20-year ban, council members ordered a police crackdown. Signs were posted at the city borders stating that fireworks are illegal in Whittier. Edith Thede, a resident of the Palm Park area since 1968, believes the crackdown might have made an impact. She said she hosed down her roof and lawn on Wednesday, preparing for the worst, but that turned out not to be necessary. “Usually it starts around late June, when we hear the firecrackers and the booms,” Thede said. “This year was much quieter. I give a lot of credit to the police and the city.” Councilman Joe Vinatieri credited the residents. “I believe the people of Whittier got the message,” Vinatieri said. “It means our emphasis paid off.” [email protected] (562)698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ask It Results: A Stitch-y Question, What’s Best for Stitch in Tomorrowland?

first_imgShare This!All joking aside about how dated the Carousel of Progress is or how deep under your skin the song in it’s a small world can get, people genuinely like those attractions. If either of them were closed to make a meet and greet, there would be justifiable outrage from every corner of the Disney fanverse. But sometimes there are attractions that have earned a reputation for being irritating with a surprising amount of universality.Mission to Mars is one of the attractions that I have distinct memories of on early trips to Walt Disney World. (Although technically it was Mission to Almost Mars, seeing as you never actually got there.) It was a solid enough attraction, but it was incredibly dated. I personally loved ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter, except being nailed in the face one time with “blood”, but I do remember watching adults and children alike come out ashen-faced and clearly traumatized. Disney must have had at least decent hopes for it, putting the “part B” of the ride in DisneyQuest, and yet it really missed the mark in Magic Kingdom because of the high kid:adult ratio. Why they didn’t just move it over to the Studios is anyone’s guess–it would have been amazing there. But I remember the outright hate about the attraction going around while the ride was open, with the idea that something…ANYTHING….would be better than this. I can imagine that a boardroom discussion went something like this:“Well, we’ve got this attraction where a scary alien comes out and eats people. Can we make that a little more kid friendly?”“Stitch is an alien, but not scary.”“Okay, but what about the eating bit?”“We’ll have him eat a chili dog. People will love that. Just a scent, no blood and guts being splattered on people.”And thus Stitch’s Great Escape was born. And….people generally didn’t like it. But how much did people not like it? Recently, Stitch’s Great Escape has moved to seasonal and now appears to have been replaced with a Stitch meet and greet. Was this an improvement or not? We asked you:Which do you think is a better use of the Stitch attraction space in Tomorrowland?Here’s your results.Meet and Greet (1,157 votes, 68%)Overall, while many more people think that a meet and greet is better than the attraction, for some people, it was a case of “anything is better than the attraction”. Some other write-in suggestions we received included stroller parking, a new attraction (with ideas like WALL*E or Tomorrowland being mentioned by name, although my vote would be for Big Hero 6), or bringing back the previous attraction(s). Some people were actually keen with the idea of a Stitch meet and greet, if Stitch was in his alien form or Stitch was meeting and greeting with fellow experiment Angel. There also was quite a bit of love for having a meet and greet inside, out of the rain and the heat. But in general, the consensus by most votes was anything is better than the attraction, and since there were only two choices, this was the default.Stitch’s Great Escape (535 votes, 32%)At the end of the day, some people actually do like this attraction. It has some neat effects, and it does fit the bill for being more child friendly than the previous version. For kids who are fans of Lilo and Stitch, this attraction has a bit of child-like charm, and has some appeal because the height requirements means it is something to look forward to. In many ways, the popularity of hating the attraction is far greater than actually hating the attraction. And there’s many people who would prefer to have any attraction–even an unpopular one–over yet another meet and greet.So there’s the results. Feel free to share what you think would be the best use of the space in the comments. Meanwhile, next week’s Ask It is live on Twitter and on the blog here. We’ll be back with your results next week!last_img read more

Young Inuit artists from Cape Dorset unveil mural about climate change in

center_img A group of young artists from Cape Dorset have left their mark on the walls of Montreal, with a massive colourful mural that speaks about the impact of climate change on Inuit.The mural on Rue Ontario East is the Embassy of Imagination’s second project in the south.Last year, the Cape Dorset-based youth art group created a mural in Toronto, their first foray out of Nunavut. The artists left to right: Salomonie Ashoona, Saaki Nuna, Tommy Quvianaqtuliaq, Johnny Samayualie standing in front of the half-finished mural. (Embassy of Imagination)The four are joined by mentors Susan Rowsell and Parr Josephee, who was part of the group that painted the Toronto mural last summer during the Pan Am Games.The youth, who come from a Baffin Island community of about 1,200, say painting on a three-storey building has been an eye-opening experience for them.

Rep Afendoulis recognizes Michigan bookmark contest winners

first_img State Rep. Lynn Afendoulis recently held a bookmark-creating contest for students at Orchard View Elementary of Forest Hills Public Schools and Beach Elementary of Cedar Springs Public Schools to commemorate March is Reading Month. The Michigan-themed bookmarks were reviewed by a committee before being judged by Rep. Afendoulis and Rep. Jon Hoadley of Kalamazoo. The representatives serve as co-chairs of the bipartisan Creative Caucus, a group of legislators dedicated to supporting the arts in Michigan.“Interacting with our young people is one of the things I love most about being your state representative,” Rep. Afendoulis said. “I always appreciate the opportunity to answer their questions and hopefully pique their interest in positively engaging with their state government. It is a very rewarding part of my job.”The winners were announced at their respective schools and received a 20th anniversary copy of The Legend of Sleeping Bear by Kathy-Jo Wargin. Their classrooms also received cookies to celebrate the event. After presenting the awards, Rep. Afendoulis read Duck for President by Doreen Cronin to several groups of students at each school and emphasized the importance of reading throughout the year.March is Reading Month is an annual educational program designed to recognize the importance of reading inside and outside of the classroom and to instill a love of reading in young people. Many legislators use the opportunity to read to youth across their district.Rep. Afendoulis serves the people of Michigan’s 73rd House District, including the city of East Grand Rapids and the townships of Grand Rapids, Plainfield, Cannon, Courtland, Spencer, Nelson, and Oakfield.PHOTO INFORMATION: State Rep.

Energy recovery of urban waste

Explore further According to data from the European agency EUROSTAT, 13 of the 28 countries in the EU are still dumping more than 50 percent of their solid urban waste. These are mainly the member states situated in the south and east of the continent. Spain is seventh last in this list, with a dumping level of 251 kg per person per year.Researchers from the Higher Technical School of Engineering (Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería—ETSI) of the University of Seville have proposed a system capable of converting waste in a more controlled manner in two stages: First, the solid is converted to gas in reducing conditions (that is, in the presence of little oxygen), and then the generated gas is burned very efficiently in specifically optimised equipment. “The great environmental advantage of this method as opposed to incineration is that in reducing conditions the generation of toxic substances is minimised. The energetic efficiency of the process is, on the other hand, similar to incineration.”The environmental advantage of gasification, therefore, would be to avoid the emission of the equivalent of up to 300 kg of CO2 per ton of solid urban waste treated, while the economic impact would be to increase the rate of management of solid urban waste. The transformation of the current system of solid urban waste management would mean the fomenting, also, of the sustainable industrial activity necessary for complying with the objectives of the struggle against climate change to which Europe has committed.Today, Finland has continually experienced this type of industrial activity since 1998, and there have been pilot programmes in Germany, Norway and, above all, the United Kingdom, where the rate of solid urban waste management is significantly higher than in the other countries, “which clearly indicates the interest in promoting energy recovery as a method for managing the fraction of solid urban waste which cannot be recycled.” Africa’s urban waste, a valuable source of electricity The use of urban waste for energy creation, especially the use of technologies based in gasification, is presented as a more sustainable alternative than controlled dumping at a tip.
