Nonetheless, Stoll isn’t shying away from talking about how prolific the Cornhuskers can be.From the Omaha World-Herald:“We’re confident as an offense we’re gonna go out there and ball out,” Stoll said. “Whatever everyone else is saying, that’s fine; we know we’re walking around with confidence and swagger like we’re gonna go out there and put out 50, 60 points every single game, and I know that’s something we are definitely capable of doing.”Scott Frost has shown that his offensive scheme can thrive both at Nebraska and UCF.It’ll be extremely difficult for the Cornhuskers to come close to the scoring totals that Stoll is aiming for, but many analysts are confident in the team’s outlook this fall.We’ll get our first look at Nebraska’s offense next Saturday when it hosts South Alabama. LINCOLN, NE – NOVEMBER 17: Tight end Jack Stoll #86 of the Nebraska Cornhuskers signals to the fans during the game against the Michigan State Spartans at Memorial Stadium on November 17, 2018 in Lincoln, Nebraska. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Nebraska’s offense sounds pretty confident in its ability to score tons of points this upcoming season. To be more precise, tight end Jack Stoll is setting lofty expectations for his team.Stoll is entering his junior season with the Cornhuskers. Last year, he totaled 21 receptions for 245 yards and three touchdowns.The Cornhuskers could use a big year from Stoll, who has developed a solid connection with dual-threat quarterback Adrian Martinez.With Nebraska’s season opener almost a week away, Stoll believes the offense can score 50 points each game. It’d be quite the jump from the team’s average last year of 30 points per game.
15 Best Subscription Boxes for Men Who Love Gifts Bundle Up Right Now With the Best Sweaters for Men Inspired by a desire to make simple men’s basics extraordinary, NYC-based designer Nick Lewis founded N/A (Necessary Anywhere), a new menswear brand of essentials.Though Lewis eventually plans to expand the brand to include a line of both t-shirts and boxers, he decided to begin his design process by perfecting the product that, to him, most personified the everyday—the sock.“I’ve always hated socks,” Lewis begins. “From a buyer’s perspective, they were always a filler item, something I needed but didn’t really care about. This presented a real design challenge—how do we make something so mundane exciting for our customers in the same way that they might be excited to buy an expensive statement piece?”The solution was found in experimenting with texture. Instead of crafting his latest line of socks with a traditional knit, Lewis incorporated a number of different band patterns into each sock in order to give them a unique feel and look. This extra texture not only adds lift and support, but also deepens the richness of their hues.Related: These high-performance dress socks will seriously up your style game“Take sock 1 for example,” Lewis states. “From afar, it looks like a plain black sock with a white stripe, but once you look up close, you’ll see multiple knit bands. The bands not only lend the socks a complex feel, but make it look as though the sock is changing color, depending on one’s perspective.”“Traditionally, this category is pretty simple and straightforward,” he added, “so the notion that everyone who buys the sock will see something distinct in the design is very exciting.”This treatment exemplifies N/A’s commitment to putting a subtle”twist” on everyday essentials. In addition to sock 1, N/A’s spring collection offers up fourteen other pairs of socks, which include mid-calf ($18), low-ankle ($15) and no-show ($12) lengths. The socks come in varying shades of black, white, grey and navy in solid and striped patterns.Check them out, here. 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Know What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable Editors’ Recommendations The Best Fun Socks for Men to Spruce Up Your Footwear Game

Editors’ Recommendations “A jet lag plan consists of small actions to be taken at specific times like light-dark exposure schedule. Light is the most important time cue for resetting your circadian clock so for a few hours/day, the app will tell the traveler when to avoid light and when to prioritize bright light,” says Beyer-Clausen. “Actions also include sleep and napping schedule and melatonin treatment plan (optional).”Speaking of the right light, on the first night at Six Senses, after a nourishing dinner, guests retire to their rooms for a turndown service that includes specialty bedding and mattresses, as well as soothing Lighting Science GoodNight lamps that ease people into a restful sleep. When used in the evenings, this light should support a natural circadian rhythm, which is vulnerable to jet lag effects.Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas“GoodNight bulb is scientifically engineered to remove blue light which is responsible for activating the brain and keeping you awake,” says Anna Bjurstam, vice president of Six Senses Spas. “By creating a light bulb without this blue spectrum we are able to enhance restfulness by allowing the body to start to create melatonin and start the sleep cycle … you immediately feel more relaxed and sleepy.”When’s the last time you came home missing your hotel bed.? I’d bet never — until now.Sleep with Six Senses is a program designed by Dr. Michael Breus to help guests sleep better not just at the resort, but to take back home and help redefine sleeping habits.“Six Senses vacations are about resting the mind, rejuvenating the body, and boosting the immune system, and all of this starts with a good night’s sleep,” adds Bjurstam. “Although a third of your life is dedicated to it, we might not be getting the best length or quality and so the goal is for our guests to feel recharged and relaxed after they leave.”Even if you add an epic day of yachting or whiskey tasting. Roughly 94 percent of long-haul travelers suffer from jet lag. That could mean indigestion, wonky bowl functions, malaise, daytime sleepiness, difficulty sleeping, and reduced physical and mental performance, according to the World Health Organization.So, exactly the symptoms that will make your business meetings or epic vacation a bust.“Jet lag affects millions of travelers each day,” says Mickey Beyer-Clausen, CEO and co-founder of Timeshifter, an app that generates personalized jet lag plans based on a traveler’s sleep pattern and chronotype (the natural time you feel most energetic or sleepy), as well as the traveler’s itinerary.Six Senses Hotels Resorts SpasSix Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, in their mission to promote more mindful travel, sought to bring this technology, along with the jet lag-curing LED lighting power from Lighting Science, into a holistic jet lag-combatting travel package.“Sleep with Six Senses” is an upgrade offered at Six Senses hotels in East Africa, Fiji, and Turkey, with plans to expand to more of the brand’s 16 resorts and 31 spas across 21 countries.Here’s how the system works:When guests arrive at Six Senses, they tap into the Timeshifter app, easing them into their new time zone via circadian neuroscience.

One of the recommendations is to prioritize for relocation people who staying in areas prone to flooding and related hazards.OCHA also reported that 74 per cent of the 1.3 million people in need have received emergency shelter materials. Distribution of waterproof shelter materials ahead of the upcoming rainy season remains a top humanitarian priority.The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported that it has scaled up efforts to reach 108,000 farmers with seeds and tools. The targeted farmers include 68,000 who will be assisted during the spring planting season in southern Haiti, and 40,000 who will receive help during the summer planting season in Artibonite, the country main rice-growing area in the northeast.The UN World Food Programme (WFP), for its part, said it is currently providing food assistance to 67 hospitals with the aim of reaching up to 100,000 beneficiaries in the facilities.In response to rising reports of gender-based violence incidents, the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) and the national police have stepped up security patrols at six settlement sites.Meanwhile, findings of the post-disaster needs assessment show that the earthquake caused damage and losses estimated at $7.8 billion – $4.3 billion in physical damage and $3.5 billion in economic losses.

BLOCK ISLAND, R.I. — The winds are blowing fair for America’s wind power industry, making it one of the fastest-growing U.S. energy sources.Land-based turbines are rising by the thousands across America, from the remote Texas plains to farm towns of Iowa. And the U.S. wind boom now is expanding offshore, with big corporations planning $70 billion in investment for the country’s first utility-scale offshore wind farms.But there’s an issue. And it’s a big one. President Donald Trump hates wind turbines.Now, wind industry leaders and supporters fear that the federal government, under Trump, may be pulling back from what had been years of encouragement for climate-friendly wind.Ellen Knickmeyer And Rodrique Ngowi, The Associated Press

Who’s getting set for quarter-final action?The new system in the Allianz hurling league sees quarter-finals come into play this year. We already know five of the teams who will be in the last eight matches on Sunday week, March 30th.Clare have booked their place from Division 1A while Cork, Limerick, Wexford and Laois are the teams that have qualified from Division 1B.That leaves Galway, Kilkenny, Dublin, Waterford and Tipperary from Division 1A battling it out for the three remaining quarter-final places. The quarter-finals will see Top 1A v 4th 1B; 2nd 1A v 3rd 1B; 3rd1A v 2nd 1B; 4th1A v Top 1B.The venues will be decided as follows – a county which had two home games in the group section will have home advantage. If both teams had two or three home games in 1A/1B, a draw will be made to decide on home advantage.Galway, Dublin, Waterford, Limerick and Wexford have all had only two home games to date in the league.So, then who’s going to emerge from Division 1A to contest the quarter-finals?There’s a cluster of teams on four points with scoring difference likely to come in to play. Galway (+7), Kilkenny (+3), Dublin (-7) and Waterford (-7) are all on four points. Bottom of the table is Tipperary on two points with a current scoring difference of (-13).Tipperary have to beat Dublin to have any chance of escaping from the relegation play-off (bottom two meet to decide who drops to 1B) but even if they win, they could still find themselves in the shoot-out, depending on scoring difference and other results.However, Tipperary could still make the quarter-finals if they win and other results go their way. A Dublin win would almost certainly secure a quarter-final place for Anthony Daly’s men but if they lose they too could be in relegation trouble. Dublin’s David O’Callaghan and Tipperary’s Michael Cahill. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOClare will definitely top the group if they draw or win against Galway and, depending on other results, could still finish top through scoring difference even if they lose to Anthony Cunningham’s men. A draw would be enough to make sure that Galway reach the quarter-finals but they could still make it, even if they lose.A quarter-final place will also be on the agenda when Kilkenny host Waterford in Nowlan Park. Kilkenny have a 12 points superior scoring difference, which could prove significant. The losers could be in relegation trouble.Who’s set for the drop from Division 1B?It’s already determined that Offaly and Antrim will be in the Division 1B relegation playoff. Offaly have only one point to their name so far, which they claimed after that late comeback last week against Limerick secured a draw. Antrim are rooted to the bottom having lost their four games to date.The losers of that game between the Faithful and the Saffron will have one last chance then to save themselves. They will take on the winners of Division 2A to determine who will be playing in Division 1B next year.Kerry and Carlow have already qualified for the Division 2A final, even before tomorrow’s final round of games. Kerry have a 100% record so far. They defeated Carlow by 3-14 to 0-17 in Tralee in their last round.6 talking points before Sunday’s hurling league action9 reminders of how good a player Michael Meehan has been
By Associated Press Minutes later, the chamber voted against Trump’s proposal. Besides helping Dreamers achieve citizenship, the president’s measure would have provided wall funding in one burst, rather than doling it out over 10 years as the bipartisan plan proposed.In addition, Trump’s bill would have prevented legal immigrants from sponsoring parents and siblings for citizenship and would have ended a visa lottery aimed at allowing more diverse immigrants into the US. The compromise bill would have left that lottery intact but barred Dreamers who obtain citizenship from sponsoring their parents.Dreamers“Dreamers” are immigrants brought to the US illegally as children who risk deportation because they lack permanent authorisation to stay.Trump annulled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, that President Barack Obama created that’s protected the Dreamers. He’s given Congress until 5 March to restore the program, though federal courts have blocked him temporarily from dismantling it.Senate leaders opened the day’s debate by trading blame. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell assailed Democrats for failing to offer “a single proposal that gives us a realistic chance to make law”. Instead, he said, Democrats should back Trump’s “extremely generous” proposal.Instead, Democratic leaders rallied behind the bipartisan plan. Eight Republicans joined most Democrats in backing that compromise, while three Democrats joined most GOP senators in opposing it.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump has “stood in the way of every single proposal that has had a chance of becoming law”.He added: “The American people will blame President Trump and no one else for the failure to protect Dreamers.”Overnight, the Department of Homeland Security said in an emailed statement that the bipartisan proposal would be “the end of immigration enforcement in America”.That drew fire from Senator Lindsey Graham one of eight GOP co-sponsors of the bipartisan plan. “Instead of offering thoughts and advice — or even constructive criticism — they are acting more like a political organisation intent on poisoning the well,” Graham said in a statement.Bipartisan compromiseThe bipartisan compromise was announced today by 16 senators with centrist views on the issue and was winning support from many Democrats, but it faced an uncertain fate.Besides opposition by the administration and leading Republicans, the bipartisan plan prompted qualms among Democrats. The party’s second Senate leader, Dick Durbin of Illinois, said some Democrats had “serious issues” with parts of the plan. Those concerns focused on its spending for Trump’s wall and its prohibition against Dreamers sponsoring their parents for legal residency.The bipartisan measure’s sponsors included eight GOP senators. It was produced by a group led by Senators Susan Collins and Joe Manchin, who spent weeks seeking middle ground.The moderates’ measure would not have altered a lottery that distributes about 55,000 visas annually to people from diverse countries. Trump has proposed ending it and redistributing visas to other immigrants, including some who are admitted based on job skills, not family ties.Also rejected was a more modest plan by McCain and Senator Chris Coons. It would have let many Dreamers qualify for permanent residency and directed federal agencies to more effectively control the border by 2020. But it didn’t offer a special citizenship pathway for Dreamers, raise border security funds or make sweeping changes in legal immigration rules.Read: Trump wants border wall and green card reform or he’ll end protection for young immigrantsMore: Nancy Pelosi gave an eight-hour long speech defending immigrants in Congress yesterday Share34 Tweet Email1 Image: J.

Scott Applewhite via AP Short URL US Senate rejects immigration bills following White House veto threat The Senate rejected both a bipartisan immigration plan and a more restrictive proposal by Trump. THE US SENATE has rejected both a bipartisan immigration plan and a more restrictive proposal by President Donald Trump this evening, suggesting the latest election-year debate on an issue that fires up both parties’ voters will produce a familiar outcome – stalemate.Facing a White House veto threat and opposition from the Senate’s GOP leaders, the chamber derailed a plan by bipartisan senators that would have helped 1.8 million young immigrant Dreamers achieve citizenship.It also would have doled out $25 billion (€20 billion) for Trump’s coveted wall with Mexico and for other border security measures, but it didn’t go as far as Trump wanted in curbing legal immigration.It lost 54-45, six short of the 60 votes that were needed for passage. That scuttled what had seemed the likeliest chance for sweeping immigration legislation to make it through the Senate this year.Trump’s own plan fared even worse as 60 senators voted no and just 39 voted for it – 21 shy of the 60 needed.Top Democrats had held out faint hopes that the bipartisan package would prevail, or at least force Trump to negotiate further. But he proved unwilling to fold on his demands for a tougher bill, reflecting the hard-line immigration stance that was a cornerstone of his 2016 presidential run.‘A dangerous policy’ In a written statement earlier today, the White House labelled the bipartisan proposal “dangerous policy that will harm the nation”.It singled out a provision that directed the government to prioritise enforcement efforts against immigrants who arrive illegally beginning in July. Trump and GOP leaders said he had already shown flexibility by offering a 10 to 12-year path to citizenship for so many Dreamers, a key demand for Democrats and some Republicans.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece can play an important role in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East according to the Greek Opposition leader, George Papandreou.Papandreou made the statement at the press conference after the 12th Symi Symposium on the Aegean island of Skiathos finished.However he attacked the Karamanlis Government for its governing of the nation, emphasising that the “crime rate, corruption, lawlessness and the practices of whitewashing scandals are unprecedented.” Papanadreou also made reference to Greece’s potential with regard to “green development” and democracy issues.Papandreou underlined that Greece can also play an important role in Europe-Russia relations and in relations between Europe and Turkey, with which it can enter into cooperation on energy issues.He also underlined the need for innovative steps in the utilisation of Renewable Energy Sources (RES).The symposium also focused on security issues concerning the protection of borders, trade, illegal trade, drug trafficking and observed that a major deficit existed in democracy on a global level, mostly in terms of who makes the decisions and in what way decisions are made.Turning to Greece’s foreign policy he said it was “suffering a crisis of strategy as regards the major national issues,” particularly in relation to relations between Greece and Turkey. Papandreou pointed out that “Greece is not adequately prepared,” expressing opposition to a visit to Turkey by the Greek foreign minister.The Karamanlis government is accused by Papandreou of dealing with Greek-Turkish relations in a “contradictory manner,” using as an example the continental shelf issue.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Unprecedented tensions erupted at the annual Justice for Cyprus March on Sunday, as local members of the group ‘United Greeks’ (Ενωμένοι Έλληνες – EE) widely considered to be affiliated to the right wing of politics in Greece, attended with banners depicting leader of the Cypriot guerrilla organisation EOKA, Georgios – “Digenis” – Grivas and bearing the legend: “Ελλάς-Κύπρος, Ένωσις” (Greece-Cyprus, Union). This immediately sparked a debate among attendees as to the appropriateness of the banner, which ultimately led to the police being called. They in turn requested that the offending banners be withdrawn and this request was immediately complied with by the members of EE.One attendee who was offended by the banner commented: “Grivas is a divisive figure in history. As leader of EOKA, he did fight for the independence of Cyprus from British rule. However, his subsequent role in destabilising the politics of Cyprus ultimately led to a civil war and, arguably, the partition of the island. His role in organising the X Battalions, which committed atrocities against leftist resistance forces in World War II in Greece, also is execrable. As for the words ‘Greece-Cyprus: Union’, it was on the pretext that Greece was about to annex Cyprus that Turkey invaded the island in 1974, in the first place. As such, this banner is offensive and counterproductive. We should be focusing on the plight of refugees and reunification of the island as a functioning democracy. In the 44 years that I have been attending the Cyprus Rally, I have never seen anything like this.”One of the organisers of the march, elaborated: “The policy of the Cypriot government is for the island to be reunified so that all citizens, regardless of ethnicity can live in peace and harmony, without the intervention or interference of other countries. There were several representatives of the Cypriot government present and their attendance at a demonstration where there are calls for the union between Cyprus and Greece can be taken as tantamount to an endorsement of that stance, though this is not the position of the Cypriot government or the organising committee, placing them in an embarrassing and difficult position. Our march protests against the continuing occupation of Cyprus by Turkish troops and the perpetuation of the division of the island. Therefore, the banner was clearly inappropriate. The owners of the banner were asked to withdraw it and they complied immediately.”However, a member of EE present at the March expressed indignation at the treatment received by its organisation.“This is a rally that has extremely poor attendance. Not even Cypriots turn up to protest. And when young Greeks turn up, willing to lend a hand, how are they treated? They get set upon, as if they are criminals. This is going to leave a lasting impression in the minds of the youth. Don’t complain that the young Greeks of Melbourne don’t take part in the community when the community sets the police on them”.Another member of EE commented as follows: “Whatever happened to democracy? Why can’t we express our democratic right to express our beliefs?”When it was suggested to him that it was held by some attendees that the sentiments expressed by the banners were either offensive or not specific to the focus of the march, he responded:“First of all, our banners also had photographs of Tasos Isaak and Solomos Solomou, both heroes murdered by the armed forces occupying northern Cyprus. Are they offensive too?“Secondly, our banner’s legend ‘Greece-Cyprus: Union’ was trying to express the sentiment that Greece is united with Cyprus in seeking a solution to the Cyprus problem and that Greece stands with Cyprus. Obviously, some ‘well-wishers’ chose to interpret that differently for their own reasons. We don’t appreciate people disrespecting our right to voice an opinion. Especially when the Cyrpus March is clearly in terminal decline. Our members will continue to advocate for justice.”During the march, the slogan “Τσεκούρι και φωτιά στα Τούρκικα σκυλιά” (Axe and fire to the Turkish dogs) was also heard being chanted. Members of EE denied responsibility for this.
La Belgique ordonne le blocage du site The Pirate BayLa Cour d’appel d’Anvers a ordonné aux fournisseurs d’accès le blocage du site de téléchargement illégal The Pirate Bay. Pas sur pourtant que cela décourage les utilisateurs…La Belgique entend s’attaquer au téléchargement illégal. La Cour d’appel d’Anvers a en effet ordonné aux différents fournisseurs d’accès à Internet (ou F.A.I.) locaux de bloquer 11 adresses internet menant au plus gros site de partage de fichiers, The Pirate Bay. La plateforme d’origine suédoise constitue la plus grosse offre de liens vers des œuvres culturelles.Comme l’explique Gizmodo, la décision de justice consiste à ne plus donner l’accès vers le site en question via l’adresse internet traditionnelle ou des dérivés. Mais les fondateurs de la plateforme ont déjà organisé la riposte face à ses mesures restrictives.Ainsi, il est tout à fait possible à la population belge de passer outre ses limitations en ôtant simplement l’entête “www” de l’URL du site. Egalement, un nouveau foyer communautaire spécifique à la Belgique appelé depiraatbaai.be est mis en place et recensera les mêmes millers de liens déjà présents. Ce nouveau nom de domaine n’est pas concerné par le blocage demandé par les autorités belges. Le jeu du chat et de la souris continue donc toujours entre les pirates et les la justice. Pour rappel, The Pirate Bay existe aujourd’hui depuis huit ans et aucune solution légale n’a réellement pu contrer le site de partage.Le 10 octobre 2011 à 17:59 • Maxime Lambert

Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Florian Thauvin were the four players nominated for Ligue 1’s Player of the Year award.It is not surprising to see three of the four nominees belong to by far the best team in the league PSG. Marseille’s Florian Thauvin is the black sheep in the group. The side from the French capital has collected 90 points in 34 matches played, already breaking the 100-goal barrier and still has a shot at going over 100 points on the season.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…Cavani has scored 25 of the 104 goals for Paris SG and has 6 assists behind his name. Neymar, who has been out injured since late February, shares second place on the goalscoring chart with Thauvin with 19 goals. The Brazilian also has 13 assists, three more than the Frenchman. Imagine the numbers Neymar could’ve had if he hadn’t got hurt. Mbappe is some way below with 13 goals and 7 assists.Considering the circumstances, Cavani is the favorite to win the award for the second season in a row, with Thauvin, who has enjoyed a brilliant season in Marseille, the likely runner up.

It offers Wi-Fi connectivity and supports all the important wireless options: AirPrint, Google Cloud Print and printing via Samsung apps.It can crank out pages at up to 21 per minute and make copies at roughly the same speed. You can scan in color, of course, but it’s a flatbed, so you’ll have to do pages one at a time. (The lack of an auto-document feeder may be the dealbreaker for some.)When evaluating any printer, you should check the price of consumables. I did it for you: Compatible toner cartridges can easily be found for as low as $20.Surprisingly, there are no user reviews of this model on Office Depot’s site. Reviews I found elsewhere are mostly positive, with the exception of a handful on Amazon (where the printer is available only from third-party sellers). However, nearly all the negative reviews there date back to 2015; newer ratings are much higher. Not entirely sure what to make of that, but the advantage of buying from a brick-and-mortar is that if you don’t like the product, it’s pretty easy to return it.If you happen to own this printer already, by all means hit the comments and share your own review.Read more: The best printers for 2019HBO Now deal!Do you subscribe to HBO only during new seasons of certain shows?
