Despite RGIIIs Pleas Redskins Will Not Rush QB On

Photo by The Washington PostRobert Griffin III, perhaps the most recognizable personality in the NFL, wants to do more than 7-on-7 drills. The Washington Redskins’ second-year quarterback said he feels great after major knee surgery in January. He’s ready to go.The Redskins are not so ready for him to go.No matter how strong and stable Griffin says his knee feels, the team will not succumb to his desires. That’s what got him in this position in the first place.“We do have a plan for him,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “He may not always like that plan, but that’s my job sometimes not to be liked. My job is to do the best thing for him. That’s what I’ll do.” Shanahan added:“You always want them a little bit antsy. I don’t want to put him in there too quick for the obvious reasons, but I like what I’ve seen. He’s had no swelling. He’s making a lot of progress. We’re getting a lot of quality work done.“If he continues this with no setback, we’ll keep on giving him more freedom, a little bit more reps and hopefully get him ready. When you slow a guy down, that’s the job of a head coach to hopefully put him in a position where he’s going to be healthy and ready to play by the first game.” read more

Duffy is happy for yesterdays goal

first_imgThe Brighton and Hove Albion defender equalized the game against Huddersfield to pave the way to an eventual victoryMathias Jorgensen scored for Huddersfield during the first minute of yesterday’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion.But Seagulls’ defender Shane Duffy was able to equalize the match at the dawn of the first half paving the way to an eventual victory.“The timing of my goal was important because when we went in at the break we knew we then had a full half to get another,” the Irish player told the club’s official website.“It’s another result that we have to build on away from home. We have a big week, but we’re always full of confidence and we’ll always try to keep a clean sheet.”Webster knows there’s a lot of competition before he debuts Manuel R. Medina – August 24, 2019 Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, hasn’t debuted in the English Premier League because he knows the competition is fierce.“If we can do that then we know we have the pace and ability in attacking areas to hurt teams and it’s all about building momentum,” he added.Teammate Florin Andone scored the second goal of the day and sealed the win.“It’s nice for him to score and I was delighted for him because he’s worked really hard and been given an opportunity,” Duffy explained.“Glenn [Murray] has been in great form and Florin’s had a few injury setbacks, but he’s kept working hard and stayed focused.”last_img read more

Valdes details the whole process these children go through after being detained, and it is not what you expect. The interview with Valdes can be seen by clicking here.Thursday, Criminal Justice Attorney Saman Nasseri joined KUSI’s Carlos Amezcua on Good Morning San Diego to further explain what exactly President Trump’s executive order means, and how it impacts the San Diego community. Nasseri said the number of people coming to our border seeking asylum is actually higher this year than it was last year.During the interview, Carlos asked Nasseri, “What is the difference between an asylum seeker and an illegal immigrant?” Nasseri responded, “An asylum seeker is someone that comes to the port of entry and says, “I have a fear of returning back to my country, I would like asylum.” That individual with their family, is going to get processed. They’re going to get processed through, get their interview, get their documents, go through the immigration court, or through the asylum office, depending on the case. They’re not going to get apprehended, they’re not considered illegal entries. Its people who are just apprehended at the border, who are just trying to cross the border illegally, those are the ones that are being taken into custody and prosecuted. Later they say, “I have a fear of returning to my country, don’t deport me, please.” They get processed separately from the asylum seekers. The last group of people who has been grouped in here is the unaccompanied minors. Those are not children that are being housed away from their families, those are children that are sent here by themselves.” Posted: June 21, 2018 Updated: 7:54 AMlast_img read more

Starvation may shorten lifespan of future generations Study

first_imgPeriods of fasting or starvation may significantly shorten the lifespan of children and their male descendants, a new study has found. The study focused on survivors of a mass famine that took place in the early 1920s in several rural regions of Russia.“A variety of experimental and epidemiological studies have tried to propose that intermittent or periodic fasting, like caloric restriction, may slow the aging process and extend lifespans,” said Eugene Kobyliansky of Tel Aviv University (TAU)’s Sackler School of Medicine in the US.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelf“But there is also evidence demonstrating that even moderate caloric restriction may not extend but, on the contrary, can shorten the human lifespan,” he said. Past research suggests a strong correlation between telomere dynamics and the processes that determine human ageing and lifespan.Telomeres, compound structures at the end of each chromosome that protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration, are the genetic key to longevity. They shorten with every chromosome replication cycle.

The situation only began to improve in April 1923. By the end of that year, the mass famine in Chuvashia was considered over. The researchers arrived at three major discoveries. They found that there were shorter leukocyte telomeres in men born after 1923 after the mass famine ended than in men born before 1922. They also found that there was a stable inheritance of shorter telomeres by men born in ensuing generations.There was an absence of any correlation between shorter telomeres and women born before or after the event, researchers said. The study was published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.last_img read more
