We are here and we deserved it, and I am really happy about that.“So far, we fought for each opportunity to get it — and then to use it is so hard. But that’s what we will do.

The senior citizen, 89 years old was so stunned and abused in the attack that he was helpless until a friend came to visit. That friend reported the brutal crime to Police since Friday night; Police are today asking the public for help in foiling the crime.James Selver was flown into Provo with cuts and bruises about the face, damage done his eye and Magnetic Media was told that now it is hard for him to see clearly out of what he called his, ‘good eye.’ The vile attack on this self-sufficient senior seems to relatives to be the beginning of a low down trend. Robbers in Grand Turk are now becoming so debased that they think nothing of attacking an older person for their National Insurance pension money. Mr. Selver is now released from the hospital, but he is in Provo. Magnetic Media asked for photos of the abuse and James Selver agreed. A relative provided photos of the day after the attack, and as of today – which is four days later.Our hope is that as the photos are viewed, there would be someone whose heart and conscience is pricked enough to offer the Police information which could lead to the arrest of the culprits behind this unthinkable act.

first_imgJürgen Klopp insists he isn’t keen on Liverpool’s statistics as they welcome Crystal Palace at Anfield where they’ve remained unbeaten.The Eagles were the last team to defeat Klopp’s men on Merseyside back in April 2017 thanks to a brace from former Reds striker Christian Benteke.Since then Liverpool have gone 31 top-flight matches without defeat on home soil. And Red’s boss previewed the game via LFC.TV“The boys have produced a few nice performances at home since then, so it’s a completely different atmosphere. That’s really, really cool and it helps massively.“There is an atmosphere and you have to use it. That’s what the boys did. It’s always who starts it first – is it first atmosphere and then the performance, or is it the performance and then the atmosphere? Meanwhile, we have reached a nice level and we have to use it again.Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, LiverpoolMo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.“Crystal Palace are really strong. I have said it a couple of times, but I don’t know a lot of teams in Europe who have a front line with the quality of players like Townsend, Zaha, Benteke, Ayew or whoever else plays. It is really, really high quality.“We can talk about the defence, with one of the most exciting right full-backs in England on the one side [Wan-Bissaka], a very experienced Dutch guy on the left side [Van Aanholt] and Sakho and Tomkins [in the middle]. Midfield, Milivojevic, Kouyate, McArthur, Meyer, whoever – it is a proper team.“That’s what we have to know and respect. It is not important how we played them last year or two years ago.“We won there [earlier in the season] and it was a difficult game. We know that and that’s what we prepare for. It is not important how we were last week, a year ago, half a year ago, a month ago – it is only important how we will be tomorrow.

(AP) — A lingering storm kept dumping immobilizing snow, sleet or freezing rain across five southern states, leaving dangerously icy roads and hundreds of thousands of people without electricity. Authorities urged people to stay home Monday in areas where driving was dangerous.A winter storm in the southeastern United States was impacting travel Sunday, causing the cancelation of more than 1,000 flights, including some to and from San Diego.American Airlines canceled 225 flights on Saturday and 1,100 flights on Sunday — most of them in and out of Charlotte Douglas International Airport, where the airline has a major hub. Another 300 cancellations were expected for Monday.The airline canceled two direct flights from Charlotte Douglas to San Diego International Airport and one direct flight from San Diego to Charlotte on Sunday, as well as multiple others with layovers, according to the American Airlines website.“If you are traveling to an area that’s affected by bad weather, check the status of your flight,” San Diego International Airport spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield advised travelers. “Even if you aren’t, the flight may be coming from an affected area.”American Airlines also issued a travel alert for nine airports throughout the Carolinas, Tennessee, and Virginia, meaning passengers may be able to change travel plans without a fee.Travelers were advised to check their flight status before heading to the airport. Cancellations were reported on flights from as far as the Midwest.Accidents on snow-covered interstates caused major delays Sunday, hundreds of flights were canceled and drivers in North Carolina and Virginia got stuck in snow or lost control on icy patches. But the commuters’ nightmare provided pre-winter thrills for kids and the young at heart, who were able to go sledding and build snowmen in places that don’t often see so much of the white stuff.The National Weather Service said a “prolonged period of snow” began late Saturday and would last until Monday in the region, with the heaviest snow in northwest North Carolina and southern Virginia. Some areas of North Carolina and Virginia saw more than a foot (30 centimeters) of snow by Sunday afternoon.More than 300,000 power outages were reported across the region, with North Carolina bearing the brunt of it, and nearly 270,000 remained without power Monday morning, according to poweroutage.us. South Carolina and Virginia, along with parts of Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee, also saw outages.Police in North Carolina and Virginia said they’d responded to hundreds of snow-related traffic accidents as of Sunday afternoon, as cars, trucks and tractor-trailers all struggled with the snow and ice.North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper strongly urged residents to stay off the roads, asking drivers not to put lives of first responders needlessly at risk. Cooper said emergency crews, including the National Guard, worked overnight to clear traffic accidents on major roadways.“Stay put if you can,” Cooper said Sunday. “Wrap a few presents, decorate the tree, watch some football.”Five members of a dive team searched the Neuse River in Kinston, North Carolina, for a missing driver Sunday after a tractor-trailer ran off a road and into the river, WRAL-TV reported . Police just outside of Charlotte said a driver died when a tree fell on a moving vehicle.Some found that walking was a more reliable means of transportation as the roads were blanketed with a wintry mix. On Sunday, Tervante Wilkerson trudged through blowing snow up Old NC 98 in Wake Forest, North Carolina, to walk across town to see his two young children.Still, he made light of the situation, saying: “It’s definitely a Kodak moment in Wake Forest.”In Greensboro, a few restaurants were open Sunday night for NFL games despite as much as one foot (.3 meters) of snow falling on the city, according to the News & Record.“We’ve got some nice homemade chicken soup, some tacos and we’ve got beer,” Greg Munning, owner of Taqueria el Azteca, told the newspaper. “We’re just hanging out and chilling and watching the Panthers game.”The Roanoke, Virginia, area saw 10 or more inches (25 cm) of snow. And it came down so fast that some people couldn’t keep up with their snow shovels, such as Adam Thompson, who was working on the walkway to his house.“That’s funny,” he told The Roanoke Times. “I just shoveled that part and it’s already covered in snow again.”Governors and local officials in several states declared emergencies ahead of the storm crossing several Southern states, which hit portions of North Carolina and Virginia particularly hard.Virginia State Police said Interstate 81 in far southwest Virginia was particularly dangerous, with snow coming down faster Sunday afternoon than crews could clear it. Police said several tractor-trailers slid off the highway.Officials warned residents to prepare emergency kits and stay off roads in impacted areas. Several schools districts in North Carolina and Virginia announced they’ll be closed Monday.“Virginians should take all necessary precautions to ensure they are prepared for winter weather storm impacts,” said Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the sixth busiest airport in the country, said American Airlines reduced its operations, with more than 1,000 flights canceled on Sunday.

Russo brothers field questions from Avengers at ComicCon

Russo brothers field questions from Avengers at ComicCon

first_img July 19, 2019 FacebookTwitter AP, SAN DIEGO (AP) — “Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo are doing a victory lap at San Diego Comic-Con Friday.The brothers reflected on their blockbuster being so close to matching “Avatar’s” all-time box office record and even fielded questions from some unlikely fans.“Avengers” stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Paul Rudd grilled their directors via video message on everything from who is the smartest Avenger to what Captain America did after completing his big task in “Endgame.”“By the way has, anyone not seen ‘Endgame?’” Joe Russo asked, as the crowd of 8,000 laughed. “If not you should leave now.”Joe Russo, left, and Anthony Russo participate in a conversation with the Russo Brothers on day two of Comic-Con International on Friday, July 19, 2019, in San Diego. (Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP)It was a mostly tongue-in-cheek question. Not only is Comic-Con home base for some of Marvel’s most enthusiastic fans, but there also aren’t many moviegoers who didn’t see “Avengers: Endgame” earlier this summer. The film has grossed $2.782 billion to date, just shy of “Avatar’s” record of $2.788 billion.“Give yourself a round of applause,” Joe Russo said to the audience. “You made the Marvel Universe happen and we couldn’t be more grateful.”The directors riffed about who needs the most takes on set (Anthony Mackie) and who gets it in “one shot” (Scarlett Johannsson), revealed that they had a monthslong conversation about the length of Captain Marvel’s hair, and the most emotional day on the set of “Endgame” (Robert Downey Jr.’s last day).For fans, the highlight of the panel was when a few of the Avengers appeared on screen to ask their directors some questions, even if they evaded answering most. Ruffalo wanted to know if the Hulk is now the smartest and strongest Avenger. Evans asked what the next thing Captain American does after he gets his dance with Peggy.“Perhaps he and Peggy tried to make a baby?” Anthony Russo responded.“I think he went to the bathroom,” said Joe Ruso.The Russos’ have had a good run with Marvel, having directed four films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They don’t have any official future plans with the comic giant, but they did say they would love to direct an adaptation of the Marvel comic “Secret Wars.”The brothers are already on to their next projects as producers. One reunites them with “Spider-Man” star Tom Holland on a movie about the opioid crisis set in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. Another will see Michael B. Jordan star in “The Thomas Crown Affair.”They also announced that they’ll be producing adaptations of the cult comic “Grimjack” and “Battle of the Planets” with their AGBO production banner.But the big Marvel news is yet to come at the annual fan convention. Saturday evening, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will take the stage in Hall H where many expect him to announce plans for the next phase of Marvel films. Although details of what exactly will happen and who might appear at this point are being more closely guarded than one of the series’ infinity stones.
