ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – It was a blazing tornado that ripped through homes and buildings in St. John’s, N.L., torching everything it crossed as residents ran for safe ground with all they could carry.The city will this weekend mark 125 years since “The Great Fire” on July 8, 1892, incinerated Newfoundland’s commercial hub and left about 11,000 people homeless.The actual cause was never confirmed. It was blamed on a dropped tobacco pipe or match in a stable on Carter’s Hill overlooking the harbour and city centre. By the time it burned out 12 hours later, 2,000 houses and dozens of businesses were in smoking ruins.“It was like a war zone, like something you might see if an atomic bomb had gone off in the city,” said St. John’s city Coun. Sandy Hickman. “It really burned a lot of the eastern half of the city down.”An investigation would later lambaste city managers and overhaul firefighting services.Flames first erupted at about 4:45 p.m. and were soon whipped up by strong winds. They scattered hot embers like so many fireballs over the wooden houses below. St. John’s, then a city of about 30,000 people, had been baked dry that summer after a month with little rain.“It was tinder dry,” said Larry Dohey, director of programming at The Rooms archives, art gallery and museum in St. John’s. “What could go wrong, went wrong.”The fire raced down Freshwater Road then split in two as it swept down Harvey Road and Long’s Hill. It picked up strength as clapboard homes and stores became powerful kindling.A few strokes of bad luck and even worse planning hampered firefighters who then served as volunteers: water supplies had been turned off earlier in the day as new pipes were installed. Although it had been turned back on, pressure in higher elevations where the blaze broke out was weak. A nearby tank that could hold almost 114,000 litres had been drained during a recent drill and wasn’t refilled, Dohey said.There was a lack of equipment, including hatchets. Old rope snapped as the men tried to use it to pull down a burning house in hopes of creating a firebreak.Another peril was the way St. John’s was rebuilt after a previous massive fire in 1846. Regulations meant to avoid a similar catastrophe were often ignored in the rush to reconstruction. They set out that buildings should be made of stone or brick with slated roofs and protective firebreaks.Instead, tightly packed wooden structures sprang up on narrow streets as before.When flames once again engulfed the city, horrified residents tried to save what they could. They raced with their possessions into stone churches and other structures they thought wouldn’t burn.“In fact, some would suggest that as they were running through the streets, embers were getting into blankets and clothing and they were actually bringing the fire into these public buildings,” Dohey said. “All of these churches would eventually burn.”All but the Basilica Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, which towered on a hill above the fire and still dominates the St. John’s skyline today.Four people died, according to archival documents. They were identified as a local woman and her daughter, another woman described as an “elderly girl, not married” and a “servant girl” whose name wasn’t immediately known, Dohey said.In the days after the fire, residents who’d lost everything huddled near the basilica “because they felt safe there,” he added. Thousands more stayed in tents or makeshift shelters in nearby Bannerman Park.The massive blaze raged into the next morning, cutting a ruthless swath right down to the waterfront. Daylight laid bare the full extent of ruin: for blocks and blocks all that remained of gutted homes and offices were charred brick chimneys that eerily stood watch over the destruction.Moses Harvey, a Presbyterian minister and writer, described his walk that morning. “Nothing visible for a mile from Devon Row but chimneys and fallen and tottering walls,” he wrote.“It made the heart ache to see the groups of men, women and children with weary, blood-shot eyes and smoke begrimed faces, standing over their scraps of furniture and clothing — some of them asleep on the ground from utter exhaustion — all with despondency depicted on their faces.”Damages were estimated at $13 million, of which only about $5 million was insured, according to Heritage Newfoundland and Labrador. The disaster threw Newfoundland, then a British colony, into economic turmoil.Many of the colourful “Jellybean Row” houses that exist today in St. John’s date back to 1892 and were among the first homes rebuilt.Government officials revamped the city’s previously volunteer fire brigades, hiring 22 paid firefighters and creating three new stations. A new force which included fire and police staff reported to the police inspector-general. Such changes stemmed in part from a scathing report by Judge D.W. Prowse, who investigated the disaster.Municipal council, he bluntly concluded, had severely mismanaged firefighting volunteers and equipment.“If this department is ever left again in the same hands, all I can say is that we deserve to be burnt.”Follow @suebailey on Twitter.

12 December 2011The International Criminal Court (ICC) decided today that Malawi failed to cooperate with the court when it did not arrest and surrender Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is facing charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, when he visited the Southern African country two months ago. Following its decision, the pre-trial chamber I of the ICC referred the matter to the Security Council and the Assembly to States Parties of the Rome Statute, the ICC said in a news release from The Hague, where it is based.The chamber found that there is no conflict between Malawi’s obligations to the court to arrest and hand over Mr. Bashir and its obligations as a country under customary international law. ICC judges also indicated that their analysis addressed the legal validity of the African Union’s position, which Malawi relied upon in its submission to the court.On 19 October the ICC requested Malawi to explain why it had failed to arrest Mr. Bashir five days earlier when he visited the country. Under the Rome Statute, States that fail to comply with a request to cooperate with the court may be referred to the Assembly of States Parties or to the Security Council.“The current position of Omar al-Bashir as head of a State which is not a party to the Statute, has no effect on the court’s jurisdiction over the present case,” the chamber said in a statement, adding that Malawi “failed to comply with its obligations to consult with the chamber by not bringing the issue of Omar al-Bashir’s immunity to the chamber for its determination.”In today’s decision, the chamber also examined Malawi’s observations submitted last month, and considered that international law does not exempt a head of State when he or she is sought out by an international court for crimes.The ICC judges noted that immunity for heads of State before international courts has been rejected time and again dating all the way back to the First World War, and gave examples of international prosecutions against Slobodan Miloševic, Charles Taylor, Muammar al-Qadhafi and Laurent Gbagbo, noting that initiating international prosecutions against heads of State has gained widespread recognition as accepted practice.The ICC first issued a warrant against Mr. Bashir in March 2009, making him the first sitting head of State to be indicted by the court. A second arrest warrant was issued in July last year.
Minister for Public Administration Ranjith Madduma Bandara says Santhigiri, a world renowned spiritual and pilgrim centre in India, could spread the message of peace in a world torn apart by hatred and violence.The Minister said this at an event held at Santhigiri in Thiruvananthapuram in India. C. Divakaran, MLA, presided over the function. Sri Lankan Minister for Industries Daya Dharmapala Gamage, Minister for Petroleum Anoma Gamage, provisional council member Chandra Kithsiri Kahatapitiya, and Kataragama church chief incumbent Don Kumarage were the chief guests.Kottayam diocese Metropolitan Thomas Mar Themotheus, Ashramam organising secretary Swami Gururethnam Jnana Thapaswi, Ashramam general secretary Swami Chaitanya Jnana Thapaswi, and former Deputy Speaker Palode Ravi were present. Later, inaugurating the valedictory, Minister for Cooperation Kadakampally Surendran said Karunakara Guru had enriched the cultural arena. Santhigiri had become a symbol of secularism. There was no religion or caste here.Its contribution to the State’s renaissance movement was valuable. At a time when peace and quiet were lacking, Santhigiri had become a place of shelter. District panchayat president V.K. Madhu presided. (Colombo Gazette) He was speaking after inaugurating the Navoli Jyothirdinam, held in connection with the 18th anniversary of the samadhi of Karunakara Guru, in Thiruvananthapuram, The Hindu newspaper reported. Bandara said Santhigiri could be the door to peace in the world. Karunakara Guru’s messages were very similar to that of Buddhism.
This grant, which is a part of the EU’s wider programme of support to rural development in Sri Lanka, will benefit rural communities in the Monaragala, Badulla, Nuwara Eliya and Matale Districts. The programme is expected to be operational for five years (2017-2022). The programme will be implemented by five partner organsiations. The European Union launched one of the largest programmes of development support in the country. The European Union will contribute Rs. 5.4 billion in to reduce poverty in the provinces by improving the income of poor people living in rural areas and helping to ensure that they have enough food to eat, even in times of hardship.Speaking at the launch alongside the Governors, Chief Ministers and Chief Secretaries of Uva and Central Provinces, Tung-Lai Margue, the Ambassador of the Delegation of the European Union to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, said “This programme has been designed with the needs of the poorest in mind. From better water and sanitation to increasing technical knowledge and empowering women, people in these rural areas should see a marked improvement in their lives. We are very pleased to partner with both the Government of Sri Lanka and a number of civil society organisations in this initiative, partnerships that will ensure that the assistance provided makes a lasting difference in people’s lives.” ACTED will aim to create jobs and increase income levels by building capacity and bringing value-addition to local farming SMEs, specifically targeting women-led businesses in dairy, vegetables, floriculture, fruits and spice value chains. Additionally, the project will promote a business enabling environment for SMEs, by strengthening local business support services and engaging local governance actors in integrated, climate-resilient and inclusive coordination mechanisms and economic development planning.Oxfam’s work will entail improving income and providing work opportunities. In addition, emphasis will be put on integrating women in economic activities. Activities include increasing veterinary services and dairy markets, improving potato seeds, cinnamon and cocoa production. The project will train civil society organisations and local government authorities to better engage in policy discussions on how to support entrepreneurs. Specifically, CARE will assist in establishing and strengthening Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that are led by women and youth from rural and estate communities. In addition, they will aim to increase their participation in decision making around employment creation, business development and economic growth of the rural and estate sectors. Adventist Development and Relief Agency and Stichting Solidaridad, will work with the rural and estate communities to increase access to water and sanitation facilities, improve personal hygiene and sanitation practices, and strengthen public authorities.

Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones (12) carries the ball during the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin on Dec. 6 in Indianapolis. OSU won, 59-0.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorAs most people that follow Ohio State football know well, redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones’ career in Scarlet and Gray did not get off to the greatest of starts.Behind then-sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller and then-junior Kenny Guiton, Jones sent out the now infamous tweet claiming his dislike for school.Jones was suspended one game by coach Urban Meyer, who said Thursday that Jones’ journey as a Buckeye is not over just yet, despite the recent success.“Cardale is a great story. It’s still in process now,” Meyer said Thursday. “He’s not the grown man that he needs to be, but he’s getting close.”For Meyer, Jones took a big step in his maturity process in his first ever start as a Buckeye in the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game. But it wasn’t the 266 total yards or three touchdowns that impressed Meyer the most in that game.“The thing that really struck me is when he made a mistake during the course of the game … he looked me right in the eye and said, ‘I made a mistake, coach. It won’t happen again.’ I said, ‘Go back and tell the offensive line that,’” Meyer said. “That’s a good sign of maturity.”OSU co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Ed Warinner said Thursday that he too has noticed Jones’ development, more specifically as a quarterback.“Cardale has come a long way in terms of the first time I watched him practice and throw the ball, to where he is at now — tremendous development,” Warinner said. “Credit to him and his (position) coach (Tom Herman) for the way he has developed his technique.”Jones said Thursday that after the infamous tweet, he was able to begin his turnaround because of a second chance given to him by the coaching staff.“The coaches gave me that fresh start. I never really thought about going somewhere else,” Jones said. “The coaches basically told me I needed to get my act together and mature off the field before I could be a starting quarterback here.”Being the starting quarterback at OSU brings a lot of pressure, and Jones said he has relied on a core group of people that includes his brothers, sisters, mother and even an OSU Heisman Trophy winner and fellow Glenville alumnus.It’s a relationship with Troy Smith — an influential relationship that Jones described as “weird.”“At times, he comes off as a great friend and great mentor, and then he can be that coach,” Jones said. “He can be that hard-nosed guy out of nowhere. It is very similar to (my relationship with Glenville) coach (Ted) Ginn (Sr.).”In his first start against the Wisconsin Badgers, Jones led an OSU offense that totaled 558 total yards of offense on the then-No. 2 ranked defense in the country.Entering the Sugar Bowl and College Football Playoff semi-final game against No. 1 Alabama, Warinner added that Jones has not yet reached his full potential despite the impressive first start.“He is one of those guys that has a lot of talent and a high ceiling. He played well in his first outing, and he has really continued to develop that here in practice as we are getting ready for Alabama,” Warinner said.Entering the game against Alabama, the Buckeyes other co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman is preparing to take over the head coaching duties at Houston, which was announced earlier in the week.While Herman will remain with OSU until the end of its run in the playoffs, Meyer said he has noticed Herman has been slightly on edge since taking the job at Houston.“Looks like someone hit him with a bat when he’s walking around here. A good bat though. There are bad bats, and a lot to go on with college football with bad bats,” Meyer said. “He’s a pro. We had a good conversation this morning.”While Herman might be flustered, Jones said he doesn’t anticipate any difference in the way Herman will prepare for the matchup with Alabama.“Definitely not. He is all about Ohio State right now,” Jones said. “He has a whole other team to lead, but that time hasn’t come yet. I believe he said in the press conference that he is going to coach these next two games like he is coming back next year.”While Herman won’t be around next year, he, Jones and the Buckeyes are set to take on the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide on New Years Day at 8:30 p.m. in New Orleans.
Quand la science s’intéresse aux flocons de neigeUn physicien du California Institute of Technology est parvenu a découvrir un des principes dictant la formation d’un flocon de neige. Kenneth Libbrecht, professeur de physique au California Institute of Technology et remarquable spécialiste des flocons de neige pense être en bonne voie pour élucider enfin le mystère des formes de ces minuscules cristaux de glace. Les scientifiques savent déjà depuis des années que les flocons se forment dans les nuages à partir de cristaux hexagonales qui se ramifient par la suite en branches délicates. Ce modèle de croissance est étroitement lié à la température environnante. Aussi, à près de -2 degrés Celsius, ils grandissent pour donner de petits disques plats, à -5 degrés ils se structurent en fines colonnes et aiguilles, à proximité de -15 degrés ils deviennent des lamelles extrêmement fines et au delà de -30 degrés, ils se présentent de nouveau comme de minces colonnes. Comment de telles variations de températures aussi minimes soit-elles peuvent-elles engendrer des changements aussi radicaux sur la structure des cristaux ? La question est jusqu’à présent resté en suspend.Un développement différent en fonction de la température Pour tenter d’expliquer cette problématique, Kenneth Libbrecht a observé une série de flocons prélevés dans différentes parties des Etats-Unis. Ses observations se sont effectuées au moyen d’un photomicroscope spécialement conçu pour les cristaux de glace. Au total, plus de 10.000 photographies de cristaux de glace ont été répertoriés dans son inventaire. Grâce à cette banque d’images, et une série d’expériences, le chercheur a pu mettre en évidence le processus de développement des flocons. Ses résultats montrent qu’à une température de 15 degrés Celsius, les coins du cristal hexagonal forment une petite bosse qui progresse le plus loin du centre pour recueillir un maximum d’humidité. Par effet de rétroaction positive, la progression de ces nouvelles branches devenant de plus en plus intense, engendre une accélération de son développement. À lire aussiLes images d’un incroyable phénomène sous-marin aperçu sous l’Antarctique (Vidéo)Pour l’heure, cette découverte représente seulement la première étape vers la compréhension des formes du flocon. Le scientifique s’attache désormais à découvrir pourquoi différentes températures conduisent à un développement différent des crêtes de l’hexagone résultant tantôt des colonnes tantôt des disques, ou tantôt des plaques.

Each stair in this U.S. Army Reserve administration building on the Fort Vancouver National Site carries a message for a boot-clad foot — and the soldier attached to it.Left foot: “I will never accept defeat.” Right foot: “I will never quit.” Left foot: “I will never leave a fallen comrade.” Up it goes to the top.The better part of two centuries of military history permeate every inch of the 366-acre Fort Vancouver National Site. But it is on the 33 acres of the East and South Barracks that the Army — in the form of the 104th Reserve Division — still physically remains.But not for much longer.The Army, under orders by Congress, will be dispersed to Fort Lewis and to a new reserve recruiting center east of Orchards by September 2011. It’ll be up to a different branch of the federal government, the National Park Service, to keep the East and South Barracks going strong.The Army’s been holding down the fort, waiting for its next deployment, in the dozens of wooden buildings constructed in the early 1900s. Like anyone with plans to leave a place, some of the maintenance work has been deferred.

I’ve never been a fan of survival or roguelike games. Having to scrounge around for items gets monotonous, as does unexpectedly dying and having to essentially start over again. The need to keep an eye on deteriorating health is annoying too. Despite this, I actually enjoyed my time with Skyhill, which is now available on Nintendo Switch. Don’t get me wrong, this title isn’t one I see myself coming back to, but it is a deceptively pleasant experience.Originally released on Steam in 2015, Skyhill takes place in the final days of World War 3. You play as a businessman staying at the Skyhill hotel. Everything is going fine until a nuclear bomb drops and the hotel goes into lockdown. Now, you must descend from the hundredth floor all the way to the first. The catch is you’ll have to survive against all manner of nasty monsters on your way down and do so while gathering useful items.AdChoices广告Each floor has two rooms to enter. The floors and rooms are randomly generated, which makes it impossible to map out a route. Most of Skyhill’s suspense comes from not knowing what awaits you. You’re just as likely to encounter a mutated baddie as you are to find absolutely nothing. You’ll eventually need to revisit the 100th floor in order to upgrade the penthouse (which serves as your base of operations). Doing this lets you rest up and gives you a nice breather. Thankfully, you continue from where you left off and don’t need to go down every single floor again.Combat is turn-based. You can attack specific body parts on enemies but you’ll have to carefully consider where to attack. For example, attacking the head deals the most damage but has a higher chance of missing. Attacking the chest has a high chance of hitting but deals less damage. If you go into a fight with nothing equipped, things will likely not end well. This means you’ll need weapons like a knives or guns equipped at all times.Performing actions eats away at your hunger meter. Because of that, you’ll need to always have food handy. It helps that your backpack has unlimited space. Cheese and bread alleviate hunger, and combining the two items to create a sandwich keeps you fuller longer. If you have no food left, actions deplete your health. While the thought of having to constantly monitor a character’s hunger sounds tedious, it’s not so bad in Skyhill. It becomes second nature after a while. But it’s still something players don’t want to ignore.Killing enemies rewards you with experience points. Leveling up makes you deal additional damage and also makes you harder to kill. You gain different skills (both active and passive) when you level up. These increase your health, dexterity, speed, accuracy, and stamina. Considering how challenging the lower floors are, leveling up and assigning skills literally means the difference between life and death.Skyhill is a simple game in terms of its mechanics. This is a double-edged sword, however. While it’s nice you don’t need to memorize overly complicated features, the game can get too simplistic. Each floor only ever has two rooms. While randomized, the game does start to get repetitive. Even the bottom 50 floors are more of the same, just with less items to pick up. To be fair, this is a personal complaint since I’m not generally a roguelike fan. Those who enjoy the genre will likely not get bored since there is just enough variety to keep things interesting. If you’re like me, you probably won’t play Skyhill for more than 20 minutes at a time.The Nintendo Switch is a perfect platform for indies and Skyhill is certainly no exception to that rule. The straightforward gameplay mechanics make the roguelike and survival elements easier to swallow. It can get tiresome at times and it’s difficult to play for long stretches of time. However, it is an overall well-crafted title even folks who aren’t into these genres can enjoy. Skyhill makes a persuasive argument for roguelikes and survival titles and is worth trying out.More on Geek.com:‘Crypt of the NecroDancer’ Is Switch’s Grooviest RoguelikeNintendo Gets Labo VR HeadsetThese Are the Games You Should Check Out in March 2019 Stay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits
4. Akron (+26) at Nebraska (-26) – The highly anticipated Scott Frost era starts this week for a Nebraska program that hasn’t won 10 games since 2012. Last year, Frost’s UCF squad scored 40 or more 9 times, and over 60, 4 times. Frost will start true freshman dual threat QB Adrian Martinez, who he described as a perfect fit for his offense.Akron is a middle of the road MAC team coming off a 7-7 season, but Terry Bowden’s Zips return all of its starting defensive backs, which may be the only hope the Zips have to slow down the new Big Red O. The reality is that if you’re taking the Huskers and the points, it has nothing to do with last year, and everything to do with Frost and his offensive scheme. Frost, coming home to Memorial Stadium as the savior of the program against Akron sounds like it could get uglier than 26, but the Zips are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. How may points is Scott Frost worth? We’ll find out.Trends:Akron: 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games, and 5-2 ATS in its last 7 road games The first week of college football is a sacred American tradition, but so is figuring out which huge favorites to bet and which big boys are in danger of blowing a cover by allowing some late garbage time touchdowns by the backups from Roast Beef Tech.We picked 5 games with at least a 24-point spread, with the purpose of giving you some info and nuggets to help you make your decision if you want to bet money on the powerhouses in a blowout, or roll with the points and stick it to the man.Western Kentucky (+36.5) at #4 Wisconsin (-36.5) – The Badgers are laying anywhere between 36.5 and 37 depending on where you look as of Friday morning, but they are stacked with Alex Hornibrook entering his third year as a starter at QB, and potential Heisman candidate Jonathan Taylor (10 100 yard rushing games in 2017) running behind a typically punishing Wisconsin o-line that returns five starters. Western Kentucky averaged 25.4 points per game in 2017, but this year they need to find a replacement for quarterback Mike White, who totaled 8,540 yards and 63 touchdowns in his last two seasons. With no clear heir apparent in the wings, points could be hard to come by in Camp Randall, even with the Badgers replacing key contributors on defense.5 touchdowns and a field goal is a big number to cover, but Wisconsin has a track record under Paul Chryst of blowing out early season small school opponents. in 2017 they opened with a 59-0 (-27 cover) over Utah state, in 2016 they blew out Akron 54-10 and covered -24, and in 2015 bounced back from a loss to Bama with a 59-0 thrashing of Miami, OH. This one could easily get out of hand for Western Kentucky especially if Alex Hornibrook starts connecting with one of the best collection of wide receivers Wisconsin has ever had. Trends: Western Kentucky: 3-10 ATS in its last 13 games, 1-6 in its last 7 road gamesWisconsin: 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games 2. Oregon State (+38.5) at #5 Ohio State (-38.5) – The Buckeyes are coming off the most tumultuous offseason in college football, and will enter the opener with interim head coach (OC) Ryan Day as Urban Meyer sits out the first game of his 3 game suspension following the Zach Smith investigation.Ohio State replaces longtime starter J.T. Barrett with the unproven, but mega talented sophomore Dwayne Haskins, who is more of a pocket passer that can stretch the field vertically with a loaded stable of wide receivers. All told, Ohio State returns a dozen starters on both sides of the ball, including Nick Bosa anchoring the defense, and key playmakers in Parris Campbell and sophomore superstar running back J.K. Dobbins on offense.With Oregon State coming off a 1-win season, and the outlook for this year not looking much rosier, this one will likely be decided early, the only question here is if the Buckeyes want to beat the Beavers senseless. It’s good bet they will. This Ohio State team is loaded and angry with an offense should continue to hum with offensive whiz Ryan Day running the show in Urban’s absence. This feels like 55-10, but 38 points is ton to give, and any late Oregon State TD’s are going to blow this bad boy up.Trends:Ohio State: 3-6 in its last 9 at home, OVER in 8 of its last 11Oregon State: 1-3-1 ATS in its last 5 games, 1-5-1 ATS in its last 7 games on the road Advertisement 3. Bowling Green (+32) at #24 Oregon (-32) – Mario Cristobal makes his debut as Oregon head coach after taking over for Willie Taggart, and he has some boosters to impress. The Ducks are only ranked #24 in the first AP poll, but return top NFL QB prospect Justin Herbert, who was leading the Duck offense to 52 points per game and completing 68% of his passes before he went down with a broken collarbone, last year.Bowling Green is coming off a 2-10 2017 season, and are still trying to figure out the direction of the program after Dino Babers left for Syracuse. The Falcons gave up an eye-popping 506.6 yards per game in 2017, which is a bad omen when heading into an opener in Autzen, and Mario Cristobal out to prove he’s not the next Mark Helfrich. 32 points is a a lot to cough up, but this could get Chip Kelly ugly if it’s clickin’ early.Trends: Oregon: Oregon is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games at homeBowling Green: 3-10 ATS in its last 13 games, 3-10 ATS in its last 13 road games 5. Louisville (+24.5) vs. Alabama (-24.5) (Neutral Site) – Nick Saban and Bama come in as a 24-point favorites against Bobby Petrino in his first game without 3-year starter Lamar Jackson, and a defense that gave up 27.5 points per game in 2017 and lost six starters. Alabama is replacing 8 starters on defense, but they do that seemingly every year.The Tide Rolls into the opener with unsettled QB battle, and both Tua Tagavailoa and Jalen Hurts will likely see action.

up their rifles and he lined up the 50 people and they shot 49 of those people And the 50th person he said you go back to your people and you tell them what happened” For Muslims ingesting pork is a sin and pig’s blood is considered unholy Brian McAllister Linn a history professor at Texas A&M University who is an expert in the Philippine conflict said he first remembers this tale about Pershing surfacing right after the terrorist attacks on September 11 2001 (Another version of the story has Pershing burying Muslim bodies with pigs) Linn said that he and Frank Vandiver who wrote a biography of Pershing and passed away in 2005 were contacted at the time about the veracity of the story “We both checked our notes and found no evidence to support this” Linn told TIME “We also concluded it was out of character” Snopes a myth-busting site came to the same conclusion: “We haven’t yet found any references to this alleged incident in Pershing biographies however nor does it match the way

particularly with its blood these American roughnecks when they had killed a juramentado held for him a very public funeral The body of the defunct bad man having been deposited in the grave a pig was brought stuck its blood sprinkled freely over the D B M the dead pig thrown in with him and the burial completed” Some reports do say that Pershing was engaged in burying Muslims with pigs or throwing pig’s blood on them According to the History News Network a Chicago Daily Tribune article from 1927 describes Pershing sprinkling prisoners with pig’s blood then setting them free to warn others of being doused with the blood “Those drops of porcine gore proved more powerful than bullets” the article wrote Christopher Capozzola a history professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology also cited an incident in which Pershing brought a pig’s head to a ceasefire negotiation with a Muslim leader “So yes there were deliberate efforts to offend Muslim Filipinos’ religious sensibilities”
