  • Austin Hays on Mike Gundy Dancing: ‘I Didn’t Know You Could Do That’

    first_imgChandler Vessels (a PFB contributor) did a great piece for the O’Colly on who would win a dance-off between Baker Mayfield and Mike Gundy. Some of the answers to his questions are absolutely spectacular.Consider this from Austin Hays on his favorite Mike Gundy dance move.“When he just drops it. You’d think he wouldn’t be able to because you never really see him do anything like that, and then all of a sudden, he just drops it to the floor, and you’re like, ‘Oh, wow, coach, I didn’t know you could do that.’”That is the best.AdChoices广告One of my other favorites is from Emmanuel Ogbah.“His dances moves are one of a kind. You never know what to expect. Even though he does the same moves every time, you still don’t expect it, but you do expect it. It’s kind of weird.”Strangely, I know exactly what Oghab is saying.Anyway, you should go read the whole piece. It’s a great idea and it’s well executed. Also, I am all in favor of a Mayfield-Gundy dance-off at midfield on Saturday. “I’m going to have to say the head man, Coach Gundy,” Jordan Sterns told the O’Colly when asked who would win this hypothetical dance-off. “I don’t know how he does some of the things he does. He gets low and all that other stuff. They should have a dance contest after the game. We’ll see who wins.” While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

  • Moda Midstream Commissions VLCC Loading Berth in Texas

    first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Liquids terminaling and logistics provider Moda Midstream has commissioned upgrades to Berth 2A at the Moda Ingleside Energy Center (MIEC) in Ingleside, Texas, to enable loading of very large crude carriers (VLCCs).As informed, the upgrades will enable loading of VLCCs at rates of up to 80,000 barrels per hour.“Today we are loading our fourth VLCC at MIEC since late December,” Bo McCall, Moda President and CEO, said.“With today’s commissioning of our upgrades to Berth 2A, we now have the US Gulf Coast’s most efficient crude export loading rates,” McCall added.Moda also announced it has commenced a further expansion of its docks, which originally were designed by the US Navy to support a battleship and aircraft carrier group. Upon completion, MIEC will have combined vessel loading rates of 160,000 barrels per hour and improved berthing efficiencies.MIEC has worked with the US Coast Guard and the Aransas-Corpus Christi Pilots to ensure efficient transit times and safe berthing of vessels. In addition, the Corpus Christi Ship Channel Improvement Project, when completed, will increase the depth from 47 feet below mean lower low water (MLLW) to 54 feet below MLLW, which will allow for the loading of increased volumes on VLCCs at MIEC.As part of the expansion program, Moda has commenced construction of an additional 10 million barrels of crude oil storage. Substantially all of the new storage tanks will be placed in service throughout 2019, and the expansion will be complete by the second quarter of 2020, according to the company.Moda has begun construction of a new manifold and interterminal piping to allow MIEC to receive direct “basin to berth” deliveries from the Cactus II Pipeline, Gray Oak Pipeline and Epic Crude Oil Pipeline. These upgrades will be completed prior to the pipelines’ expected in-service dates. MIEC will be able to receive simultaneous deliveries from these three new “next generation” long-haul crude pipelines at their full mainline rates.“As the gateway to foreign markets for Permian and Eagle Ford crude production, MIEC has seen very strong customer demand, and we have had tremendous success in securing new customer commitments to support our ongoing expansion,” McCall said, adding that Moda is evaluating additional expansion phases that would increase available storage and waterfront capabilities at its 900-acre site.MIEC has approximately 2.1 million barrels of oil storage capacity and receives deliveries from the Cactus Oil Pipeline.last_img read more

  • Seth Rogen Speaks Alzheimers To The Senate

    first_imgIn a personal, serious speech, with several funny bits thrown in, actor and comedian Seth Rogen spoke before the US Senate last month regarding the need for more funding for Alzheimer’s research and better support for families affected by the disease.Video: Seth Rogen Makes Statement On Alzheimer’s ResearchWhen his mother-in-law was first diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 55, Rogen said, “I thought [Alzheimer’s] was something only really really old people got, and I thought the way the disease primarily showed itself was in the form of forgotten keys, wearing mismatched shoes and being asked the same question over and over.“After that is when I saw the real ugly truth of the disease. After forgetting who she and her loves ones were, my mother-in-law, a teacher for 35 years, then forgot how to speak, feed herself, dress herself, and go to the bathroom herself, all by the age of 60.”Without a prevention, cure or even a way to slow the progression, says Rogen, all that is available is for families to care for Alzheimer’s patients through dedication. Shame and stigma are further challenges to them.For these reasons, Rogen cofounded Hilarity for Charity, “a fund we have as part of the Alzheimer’s Association, to raise money to help families struggling with Alzheimer’s and support cutting edge research,” he said. “That’s right, the situation is so dire that it caused me, a lazy, self-involved, generally self-medicated man-child to start an entire charity organization.”Concerned about the cost of Alzheimer’s and related dementia to the public, as well as the staggering increase in the death rate from the disease, Rogen says he can’t imagine how people with limited means cope.“People look to their government for hope, and I ask that when it comes to Alzheimer’s Disease you continue to take more steps to provide some more.”Copyright ©2014Look to the Starslast_img read more

  • Judge who jailed KI 6 named interim head of law school in

    first_imgCorrection: APTN News incorrectly labelled the Bora Laskin Law School as an Indigenous law school in this story on Friday. While Indigenous laws and rights are a part of the school’s agenda, Natural Resources and Environmental Law, and Sole, Small Town Practice with the Integrated Practice Curriculum is also taught according to the school’s website.APTN NewsA judge who jailed six members of the Kitchenumaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nation in Treaty 9 has been named the interim head of the Indigenous law school at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay.Ten years ago, Justice George Patrick Smith sent the chief and five councillors from KI to jail for contempt of court because they refused to stop blocking access to their territory to a resource company.Chief Donny Morris was one of those jailed.“For him to take interim… it has to be somebody else in that position,” Morris told APTN News.“It is a polluted environment now. Some sort of opposition will be forthcoming in the form of a letter.”The university is searching for a full-time dean of the law school after the departure of Angelique EagleWoman who resigned saying that she experienced racism and a university board that was apathetic towards Indigenous issues.Morris questioned whether Smith had an understanding of the country’s Indigenous issues when he sentenced the six KI members almost a decade ago. He said he invited Smith to his community after his release from prison, but the justice never accepted.“He would’ve heard firsthand from our elders why we are like this,” Morris said. “We truly believe this is our land, our area, our issues, the non-native system is not recognized. It’s faith-based too, we believe God put us here, this is our area, we didn’t migrate here. We were born and raised here, this is our land, our territory and his expertise and his areas contradicts what we believe in.”More to come…[email protected] files from Willow Fiddlerlast_img read more

  • Progress finally being made on understanding ABC proof

If the proof turns out to be verifiable, most in the field believe it will be a truly historical event.last_img read more

  • Smoking may affect male fertility

    first_imgMale infertility accounts for about 30 to 50 per cent of all infertility cases, and infertile men tend to have high levels of damage to the sperm DNA.“More and more studies are demonstrating a harmful effect of smoking on male fertility,” said a senior author of the study Ricardo Pimenta Bertolla from Sao Paulo Federal University in Brazil.“Our results point in the direction of important semen alterations: Semen of smokers presents an inflammatory nature, associated with decreased capacity of sperm to achieve fertilisation and generate a healthy pregnancy,” Pimenta Bertolla noted. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The study involved 20 nonsmoking men and 20 men who smoked. Researchers also assessed 422 proteins in the participants’ sperm. The analysis revealed that one protein was absent, 27 proteins were underrepresented, and six proteins were over-represented in smokers. Analyses of these proteins suggest that cigarette smoking may promote an inflammatory response in the male reproductive tract. The study was published in the journal BJU International.“It is especially noteworthy that, in our study, sperm DNA fragmentation was increased. Other studies have proposed this to be a potentially pro mutagenic effect, which is to say that sperm with altered DNA may lead to health problems in the offspring,” Pimenta Bertolla explained.last_img read more
