IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The trial for the man charged with killing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts in 2018 has been delayed.Cristhian Bahena Rivera had been scheduled to stand trial for first-degree murder on Feb. 4 in Sioux City.That plan became uncertain last week when Judge Joel Yates suspended the case so that the Iowa Supreme Court could decide whether to grant Rivera’s pretrial appeal of a key ruling.Iowa Judicial Branch spokesman Steve Davis said Tuesday that the trial has been delayed and will not happen in the month of February. A new trial date will be set after the Iowa Supreme Court decides how to handle Rivera’s appeal.State prosecutors on Monday urged the Supreme Court to refuse to hear Rivera’s appeal before the trial.Investigators say the 25-year-old Rivera stalked Tibbetts while she was out for a run in Brooklyn, Iowa, stabbed her to death after a confrontation and dumped her body in a cornfield. They say he led them to her body after a lengthy interrogation.Rivera’s lawyers argue that much of the evidence should be suppressed because his cooperation was coerced and he wasn’t initially read his legal rights. Yates ruled that his statements were voluntary and key evidence is admissible.
Just 17 days after Arsenal’s 4-2 Premier League win against Pochettino’s team, this was a welcome early Christmas present for Tottenham.– Thrilling Spurs –Against the run of play, Tottenham gave a thrilling glimpse of their class as they snatched the lead with a lethal counter-attack in the 21st minute.When Lucas Moura’s aerial challenge deflected the ball into Alli’s path, the Tottenham midfielder instinctively clipped a superb pass over the Arsenal defence.Son anticipated the delivery with a perfectly-timed run behind the flat-footed Nacho Monreal and kept his nerve to slot a fine finish past Petr Cech.Arsenal appealed in vain for a penalty when Lucas Moura nicked the ball away from Henrikh Mkhitaryan as he prepared to shoot.With Arsenal still protesting, Tottenham threatened to double their lead when Christian Eriksen broke away and teed up Moussa Sissoko, only for the midfielder to scuff a woeful shot high over the bar.Aaron Ramsey was inches away from equalising when he met Alex Iwobi’s cross with a volley that cannoned back off a post.Arsenal’s profligacy proved costly as Pochettino’s men turned up the heat after half-time.Pochettino went for the kill as he sent on Harry Kane for his first appearance in the tournament since 2015.It was an inspired move as Kane played a key role in Tottenham’s second goal in the 59th minute.When Cech miskicked a clearance straight to Kane, the Tottenham striker floated a superb pass to Alli, who beat the offside trap before clipping a majestic finish over the Arsenal keeper.In the other quarter-final, Eden Hazard came off the bench to score Chelsea’s 84th-minute winner in their 1-0 victory against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.Manchester City and third tier Burton advanced to the last four on Tuesday.Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham marched into the League Cup semi-finals with a 2-0 win at bitter rivals Arsenal, but the north London derby was overshadowed as Dele Alli was hit by a bottle thrown from the crowd.South Korea forward Son Heung-Min put Tottenham ahead in the first half of a fiery quarter-final clash.Alli increased Tottenham’s advantage after half-time as they won at the Emirates Stadium for the first time in 10 visits dating back to 2010.The England midfielder’s decisive contribution provoked a disgraceful reaction from an Arsenal fan, who threw a plastic bottle that cracked Alli on the back of the head in the 73rd minute.Alli rubbed his head but appeared unharmed as he responded by gesturing towards the Arsenal fans to indicate the scoreline.“It is what it is. It made the goal even sweeter, and the win,” Alli said with a smile.“We knew how important it was today, a big test. It was a strong performance in the end.”There also appeared to be other objects thrown by Arsenal supporters into the section occupied by Tottenham’s fans as the atmosphere turned toxic.The shocking incidents came after a Tottenham fan was banned for four years after being found guilty of throwing a banana skin at Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when the teams met in an acrimonious clash earlier this month.It continued a worrying trend of fan behaviour after the recent alleged racist abuse of Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling by a Chelsea supporter.The unsavoury issues in the stands took the gloss off a mature Tottenham performance that underlined why Mauricio Pochettino has been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed the sacked Jose Mourinho as Manchester United’s next permanent manager.Pochettino has yet to win a major trophy in his four-year reign at Tottenham, or in his previous jobs at Espanyol and Southampton.But if the 46-year-old does take charge of United at the end of the season, once Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finishes his spell as interim boss, he remains in with a chance of leaving with silverware back in the Tottenham trophy cabinet.Tottenham haven’t won a major prize since lifting the League Cup in 2008 and this will be their first semi-final appearance in the competition since they reached the final in 2015.
Tags: English Women’s County Finals 11 Sep 2019 Gloucestershire defending Women’s County Finals title at Delamere Forest Last winner’s winners defied a series of storms to beat Buckinghamshire 5-1 in the deciding match at Royal North Devon after the final fixtures in this round robin competition were reduced to four singles and two foursomes because of the weather. Surrey and Yorkshire were also in the title hunt going into the wind-strewn final day but the former lost to Staffordshire and Norfolk earned their first win of the week against the latter.Last year Gloucestershire claimed the title for a second time in three years with a team comprising Rachael Archibald, Jess Brown, Grace Connelly, Charley Hiatt, Ebonie Lewis, Caley McGinty, Claudia Ovens, Sam Round, Alex Saunders and Ffion Tynan and Brown, Connelly, Lewis, Ovens, Round, Saunders and Tynan all return this year. They are joined by Megan Bartlett, Issy Hopkins and Bethan Popel.They will begin their defence with an opening fixture against Norfolk while Lincolnshire play Surrey and Buckinghamshire face Yorkshire. Yorkshire are the most successful team in this year’s competition having claimed the title 13 times most recently in 2017 at Felixstowe Ferry. Surrey have lifted the trophy nine times and Lincolnshire once. Both Norfolk and Buckinghamshire are seeking their maiden victory. Each of the teams in the England Women’s County Finals came through a qualifying competition in one of England Golf’s six women’s regions: East, Midlands North, Midlands South, North, South and South West.Three matches take place on each of the five days of the competition with the teams playing three foursomes in the morning and six singles in the afternoon. Each county can enter a team of up to 12 players. Any six of those competitors can play in the foursomes and singles.Image courtesy of Leaderboard Photography.

The Holiday Kids’ Tree Project is a charitable project of the Association of Washington Business (AWB) that benefits children and families in rural communities statewide. AWB members, including large and small employers from across the state and individuals support the program with donations.A long line of eager children visited with Santa and posed for pictures with him and his North Pole entourage in front of the 2017 Holiday Kids’ Tree on Friday, Dec. 1, in the state Capitol rotunda. (Photo: Brian Mittge/AWB)AWB also hosts the annual tree-lighting ceremony at the state Capitol Rotunda where money and gifts are presented by AWB and the governor to the rural fire departments. While the tree-lighting ceremony is the most visible symbol of this effort, the real joy is in the hundreds of needy families supported through donations from AWB member businesses and individuals.When did this program begin? Started in 1989, this year’s ceremony marks the 30th anniversary of the Holiday Kids’ Tree. The first year of the event, AWB raised just enough money to set up the tree.Who contributed to the effort this year and how will the donations be distributed? To date, 67 AWB member businesses and individuals from around the state have donated to the project. Each of the 18 fire districts will receive $1,000 and a large bag of gifts to distribute to families in need this holiday season.Northwest native animals decorate the 2017 Holiday Kids’ Tree in the Capitol rotunda. At the end of the month when the tree is taken down, the stuffed animals will be donated to children’s hospital patients. (Photo: Brian Mittge/AWB)How much money has the project raised since it first began? Since 1989, AWB has raised more than $420,000 for families who benefit from this project.What does AWB do with the money for this project? The money is distributed to 18 rural fire districts in nine counties, which use the funds to buy food and gifts for families in their communities. The counties that will receive funds are Grant, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Mason, Spokane, Thurston, Okanogan, Chelan and Walla Walla.Who provides the decorations? What is this year’s theme? AWB purchased the decorations. The tree will be decorated with 7,000 LED lights and festive traditional decorations, along with stuffed characters representing this year’s theme of “Military Bears” and will represent all branches of the U.S. military. The stuffed ornaments will be donated to an area children’s hospital when the tree comes down at the end of December. The stuffed characters will be individually wrapped and then handed out to children at the hospital.Who provides the tree? The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services provides the tree. Like last year, Weyerhaeuser’s Vail Tree Farm donated the tree.How tall is the tree? What kind of tree is it? This year’s tree is a 25-foot Noble fir, donated by Weyerhaeuser’s Vail Tree Farm in Rainier, Wash. The elevation of the tree farm is roughly 2,100 feet.Gov. Jay Inslee joins Washington Department of Enterprise Services employees to help put the 2017 Holiday Kids’ Tree into place in the Capitol rotunda on Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017. The 30-foot noble fir was donated by Weyerhaeuser and grown on its Vail Tree Farm. (Photo: Brian Mittge/AWB)Who decorates the tree? The State Visitor Services helps coordinate this event each year. Staff from the Department of Enterprise Services put the tree in place and decorate the tree alongside AWB. The tree was donated by Weyerhaeuser.Who will light this year’s tree? Gov. Jay Inslee and First Lady Trudi Inslee will light the tree with help from Officer Jon Hazan, Olympia Police Department, and former Sergeant in the Army Reserves with the 448th Civil Affairs Battalion, along with his wife Christy and their 6-year-old son Matthew and 5-year-old daughter Allison.Moment of Silence: This year’s Holiday Kids’ Tree lighting ceremony falls on December 7, which marks the 77th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

(Visited 55 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A new outcrop of the Burgess Shale formation in Canada appears to be richer and more diverse than the original.Live Science calls it a Mother Lode – a new outcrop of Cambrian fossils in Kootenay National Park, Canada, that is revealing more species in more detail than the famous Burgess Shale, a World Heritage site. It’s about 26 miles southeast of the Burgess site in Yoho National Park. Already, researchers have found 3,000 fossils of 55 species, 15 of which are new to science, the article says (a photo gallery shows some of the specimens). The rate they’re finding new fossils is “astonishing,” diggers say. They are keeping the location of the “Marble Canyon” site secret to prevent looting.The find is published in Nature Communications, which states: “The presence of the stem arthropods Misszhouia and Primicaris, previously known only from the early Cambrian of China, suggests that the palaeogeographic ranges and longevity of Burgess Shale taxa may be underestimated.”The preservation appears to be even better than at Burgess. The article describe the soft tissue impressions:Many of the fossils at the new site are better preserved than their quarry counterparts, the researchers report. The new fossils reveal the internal organs of several different arthropods, the most common type of animal in both the new and old Burgess Shale locations. Retinas, corneas, neural tissue, guts and even a possible heart and liver were found.“This is the first time we’re seeing these details,” Gaines said.Some surprises include: (1) Finding similar fossils to the Chinese ones at Chengjiang that were thought to have gone extinct 10 million years earlier. “Until now, researchers thought these Cambrian animals went extinct by the time the Burgess Shale formed. Their discovery in Canada means that many Cambrian life forms were more widespread and longer-lived than previously thought,” the article states. (2) There are fewer sessile marine fossils at the new site, which researchers think is 100,000 years younger than Burgess. (3) The rocks at Marble Canyon have a different lithology than at Burgess.Contorted strata in Kootenay National ParkThe article mentions the Cambrian explosion but none of the problems, explaining away the invention of new body plans with complex organs (“retinas, corneas, neural tissue, guts and even a possible heart and liver”) with a quick reference to hard parts to cover the hard parts of this embarrassing conundrum for Darwinian evolution:Other arthropods developed hard parts, such as shells, to protect themselves from their fellow predators. This “arms race” between predator and prey is one of the drivers of the Cambrian explosion, scientists think.Some scientists think otherwise: including Stephen Meyer, whose best-selling book Darwin’s Doubt not only dismissed Darwinian evolution, but explained how intelligent design is the only cause sufficient to produce new body plans.So these dumb animals “developed” hard parts. Right. They did it “to protect themselves.” They met in war rooms to discuss plans for their “arms race.” They “drove” evolution. This is all the fallacy of personification. It won’t work for a theory that champions unplanned, unguided, aimless, blind natural processes. Read Darwin’s Doubt, and watch the Illustra documentary Darwin’s Dilemma.This discovery spells trouble not only for Darwinian evolution, but for old-earth creationism. Notice how the evolutionists toss around millions of years recklessly; 100,000 years between the Burgess and Marble Canyon outcrops, 10 million years earlier for the Chinese site – yet they all have basically the same creatures in the same habitats. Do they know these dates? No! It’s all made up to fit their made-up evolutionary timescale, that is crumbling anyway under the Cambrian explosion. If we can’t trust them with that, why should we trust them with dating? It’s like dealing with known liars. You can’t trust anything else they say. Theistic evolutionists and old earthers should consider the source of their trust in those dates.What this also means is that these outcrops are just the tip of the iceberg. The same fossils in the same strata from Canada to China – think of it! Something happened to them that prevented the normal process of decay when animals die. They were all buried so quickly, even their corneas and hearts were preserved. What could do that? Hint: it was global, and it took one year, not 10 million.Evolutionists have wiped out. Stop trusting their Darwine-inebriated notions. Let the evidence speak for itself – outside the Darwin box.
Wma sport mens metal alice football running hair headband hairband. Got this for my son, i can see his face now. Effective at controlling the hair. Would recommend it to others. This product works well and is value for money. Band is sprung steel and the fingers bend to desired position for comfort. Excellent hair band for serious workouts. This hairband is really excellent. I needed something to keep my hair off my face during boxing classes and had previously tried elasticated headbands but these kept slipping off or were too warm. This metal hairband grips very well without being too tight or painful behind the ears. It is so good i am thinking of ditching elasticated headbands until the winter when i need something to cover my ears. I use these for tiara making and they are fantastic and fast delivery aswell xxx thank u xxx. A man-band at last.WMA Sport Mens Metal Alice Football Running Hair Headband HairbandNot bad for the priceExcellent hair band for serious workoutsYou get what you pay forArrived late, very small.WMA Sport Mens Metal Alice Football Running Hair Headband HairbandEnter your model number above to make sure this fits.These hair bands have become a firm favorite with football players including Beckham, Berbatov, Torres, Drogba, WoodgateManufactured to the highest standard this product is durable and comfortableSuitable for Ladies and Gentlemen.Keep even the most unruly hair in checkTeeth on the band help to grip the hair firmly in place. Keep your hair away from your face during sport and increase concentration.Size: 14*12.5*1.5cm/Keep even the most unruly hair in check! Ok, so a 58 year old bloke with a huge mane of hair looks a bit odd. It looks even more odd when the only hair-bands you can find are all very, very “girlie”. Hoo-blooming-rahi had to take a miniature file to the ends because i found them to be a bit sharp and uncomfortable, but otherwise its a great product. It took 5 weeks for it to arrive. It is thin and not up to much. I have a feeling it won’t last long. But having said that it wasn’t expensive. Bought this ages ago, been using it ever since, not only does it keep my hair back, but slicks it back each time i remove it. Arrived at least 3-4 days late. Not sure if it was worth the money as it seems to be much smaller than necessary. This is a good product & does stay in place but it’s quite big on my head so was uncomfortable behind my ear. I use them for sports and need to wash them as they get a little sweaty & they get a little rusted after a few months, i guess if you put them in the hot water cupboard after drying, or you could just not wash them. This headband is dope, it looks great and feels great on my hair, i’ll recommend it to anyone that has long hair. Bought for my husband when he goes to the gym as his hair falls onto his face. He was unsure to wear it in the beginning but after seeing another guy wearing something similar he has never looked back for his work out routine without it. Looks masculine and all the blocks are wearing them in the gym now because of it. I mean my husband is pretty cool. I bought this to wear at work as i have a long one length bob. Once in it isn’t going anywhere but can become uncomfortable after a few hours. Taking it out can be a chore as often you hair is tangled around the combs so i would suggest that it is better for shorter hair hence the word ‘mens’ in the description. This is my second headband of this style so comfy to wear and the price is incredible would definetly recommend. It holds my hair in place whilst doing my karate its a good item to have,. For the price i am very pleased and it fits very well. I am a woman but have a large head so i dont know what other reviewers are talking about when they say it doesnt fit well. It fits like a glove, doesnt dig in behind my ears and keeps tyhe hair out of my face. Simple, but does the job :). Imagined i would mature my hair, wanted to have lengthy hair after in advance of i go bald. Labored a deal with with out any difficulties.Very good to use, strong and lasts extended than anticipated. Only damaging is the paint arrives off if you sweat in any other case superior.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement “The set was otherworldly. It was like being in, well, it was literally another world.”As Cineplex Entertainment gets set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the romance disaster – with screenings on Feb. 5 and Feb. 15 to launch its Classic Film Series – Garber still marvels at the experience.“It’s one of the things I’m recognized most for wherever I go,” said the London, Ont., native, whose credits also include the TV series Alias and The Flash, and the films Godspell and Argo.“For me, it’s amazing. I sort of have to pinch myself when I think about being involved with that movie because it was such a cult and huge success. That story is something that grabs, especially young kids.”And yet, Garber said he and his castmates – from Leonardo DiCaprio to Kate Winslet and Billy Zane – didn’t fully realize just how epic the film would be.
