600 icy cold ones

600 icy cold ones

Whyalla City Council media and communications manager Phill Stone has braved the chill for a cause.

After being nominated to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by the Whyalla News, Phill graciously accepted the challenge to raise much needed funds for both Motor Neuron Disease and the Whyalla Hospital Auxiliary.

Phill said he decided to split the funds between Motor Neuron Disease Australia and the Whyalla Hopsital Auxiliary because they were both close to he and his wife’s hearts.

“I decided to go half and half,pandora essence 50\50 with motor neuron because that particular disease is close to my wife’s heart because she was a carer for many years,” he said.

“I have a soft spot for our Whyalla Hospital Auxiliary and have spent a bit of time at the Whyalla hospital, I know how fortunate we are although we have our U bute new hospital we certainly [still] need lots of support.”

During the week leading up to the event, Phill fundraised within the council, as well as many community groups he is involved with locally.

On Friday, September 5 at 12pm Phill was doused with icy cold water by his co worker Rebecca Neilson.

“The trick to the degree of wetness is to wear thick cotton clothes which minimise the opportunity for the water to soak in, but you can’t escape that moment of icy cold sensation when the slurry first comes into contact with your scalp particularly when you have little hair to use as a barrier.” Whyalla City Council media and communications manager Phill Stone

“I have done a quick tally at the moment and the figure currently stands at more than $500 and by the time everything comes in and is added it should exceed $600,” Phill said.

“So that means a minimum of $300 for both Motor Neuron Australia and Whyalla Hospital Ladies Auxiliary.

“The main part of this is from my workmates, who have overwhelmed me with their generosity, supported by some of my Whyalla Players ‘family’ and some rattling of the donations jar outside council at high noon.”

Phill said the trick to enduring the icy cold pour was to wear ‘thick cotton clothes’.

“The trick to the degree of wetness is to wear thick cotton clothes which minimise the opportunity for the water to soak in, but you can’t escape that moment of icy cold sensation when the slurry first comes into contact with your scalp particularly when you have little hair to use as a barrier,” he said.

“It certainly wakes and freshens you up.”

Phill thanked his work colleagues at the council whom he said were a great bunch to work with and were quick to support him, and his co worker Rebecca Neilsen.

“My ‘partner in crime’ Rebecca Neilson, who I work with as a two person media and communications department in council, ably performed the task of upending a very full bucket of ice and water, while saying ‘I am sorry’ but I reckon she still enjoyed it,” he said.

The Ice Bucket Challenge, otherwise known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of myotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Motor Neuron Disease, and encourage donations to research.

The understanding is that foreign buyers flush with cash have been buying up many homes at the high end of their values, continually pushing the market higher again, artificially higher, according to. With the values ever increasing in Vancouver and no more land to add to the market, it is one of the safest places to put money, and it will likely bring a better return than many investments.

Vic Beasley in the 2015 NFL Draft

FLOWERY BRANCH The Falcons selected Clemson defensive end/outside linebacker Vic Beasley with the eighth overall pick in the the NFL Draft on Thursday.

Beasley weighed in at 246 pounds at the combine and wanted to show teams that he could drop into coverage and rush the passer as a linebacker during Clemson’s Pro Day. Scott 27 of the Louisville Cardinals during the game at Memorial Stadium on October 11, 2014 in Clemson, South Carolina.

“I grew up a Falcons fan,” he said. “I would love to play for the Falcons. But wherever I go I’m going to honor that team and give my best effort.”

The stars aligned for Beasley to end up playing for his favorite team.

The Falcons have a new coach, Dan Quinn, who values pass rushers and the team is in desperate need of players who can fire off the edge and get to the quarterback. Beasley, Clemson’s all time sacks leader, is among the best pass rushers in the draft.

College: Clemson. Height: 6 3. Weight: 246. Hometown: Adairsville. High school: Adairsville. Age: 22.

Highlights: Clemson’s all time sack leader and a native of Adairsville, Beasley wants to play for the Falcons. He had 37 tackles, a team high 21.5 tackles for loss, a team high 12 sacks, nine quarterback pressures, three pass breakups, two caused fumbles, one recovered fumble and a 16 yard fumble return for a touchdown in 557 snaps over 13 games (12 starts) last season. He was the ACC defensive player of the year, as voted on by the coaches and the media. He finished with 33 sacks in his career, which he started as a running back.

Q: How did you learn to set the edge so well?

A: Coming from Clemson with a great coach like (Marion Hobby) really instilled in us great technique and discipline. We just have to use what we learned in the film room and in the meeting room and apply it out there on the field.

Q: Can you drop back into coverage at the NFL level?

A: I’m comfortable doing that.

Q: Which NFL outside linebackers stand out to you?

A: Guys I look up to are guys like Von Miller, Bruce Irvin, guys who I plan on mirroring my game after on the next level. I see those guys drop back in coverage here and there, and that’s why I try to mirror their game.

Q: Have you met with the Saints and would you love to playing under (Saints defensive coordinator) Rob Ryan?

A: I would love to play under him. His defense is great, he’s a great defensive coordinator and whichever way he’s willing to use me, I’m available.

This is an offense that Marquette held to just two goals only nine days earlier. Duke allowed more goals than VMI despite the Spiders winning more face offs, having more clear attempts and forcing more failed clears against the Keydets. I want to wait for the play to play in order to compute a possession total and figure out how bad this performance actually was, but I’m not optimistic..

Vick issues apology after guilty plea

RICHMOND, Va. Looking somber and speaking “from the heart,” Michael Vick apologized Monday for “using bad judgment and making bad decisions” and vowed to redeem himself after pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting charge. District Court to formally enter the plea.

In Atlanta, the Falcons said they would not cut Vick immediately because of salary cap issues.cheap jerseys The team intends to pursue the $22 million in bonus money that he already received in a record $130 million contract signed in 2004.

“We cannot tell you today that Michael is cut from the team,” owner Arthur Blank said. “It may feel better emotionally for us and many of our fans, but it’s not in the long term best interests of the franchise.”

Vick made his first public statements on the dogfighting ring and said:

“I made a mistake of using bad judgment and making bad decisions. Those things just can’t happen. Dogfighting is a terrible thing, and I do reject it.”

He singled out NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Blank, coach Bobby Petrino and his teammates for personal apologies, saying “I was not honest and forthright in our discussions.”

He also apologized to “all the young kids out there for my immature acts and what I did and what I did was very immature. So that means I need to grow up.”

“I totally ask for forgiveness and understanding as I move forward to bettering Michael Vick the person, not the football player,” he said.

He concluded by saying, “I offer my deepest apologies to everyone. And I will redeem myself. I have to.”

Vick took no questions. District Judge Henry E. Hudson’s questions. Family members occupied the front row of the packed courtroom for the 15 minute hearing.

The plea by the suspended quarterback was accepted by Hudson, who asked: “Are you entering the plea of guilty to a conspiracy charge because you are in fact guilty?”

Vick answered yes.

Hudson emphasized he is not bound by sentencing guidelines or the recommendations of prosecutors and can impose the maximum sentence. Prosecutors proposed a 12 to 18 month prison term.

“You’re taking your chances here. You’ll have to live with whatever decision I make,” Hudson said. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg said in a statement. “We thought, however, that the conduct in this conspiracy was heinous, cruel and inhumane.” Vick is one of four defendants in the case.

The first defendant to plead guilty left the conspiracy in 2004 and is not as culpable, Rosenberg said.

Blank and general manager Rich McKay refused to say that Vick’s career in Atlanta was over, though that is likely more a legal issue than an indicator of their future plans.

“We cannot undo what’s been done,” Blank said. “But we can and will recover from this.”

The Falcons will receive a $6 million cap credit for Vick’s salary this year since he’s been suspended without pay. They are still on the hook for approximately $22 million in prorated bonus obligations spread out over this season and the next two. Ambassador Andrew Young, both members of the Falcons’ board, attended the news conference at Blank’s corporate headquarters.

In his written plea filed last week, Vick admitted helping kill six to eight pit bulls and supplying money for gambling on the fights. He said he did not personally place any bets or share in any winnings.

Shortly afterward, the NFL suspended him indefinitely and without pay. Merely associating with gamblers can trigger a lifetime ban under the league’s personal conduct policy.

A federal indictment issued in July charged Vick, Purnell Peace of Virginia Beach, Quanis Phillips of Atlanta and Tony Taylor of Hampton with an interstate dogfighting conspiracy. Vick initially denied any involvement, and all four men pleaded innocent. Taylor was the first to change his plea to guilty; Phillips and Peace soon followed.

The details outlined in the indictment and other court papers fueled a public backlash against Vick and cost him several lucrative endorsement deals, even before he agreed to plead guilty.

The Falcons were to play an exhibition game at home against the Cincinnati Bengals later Monday. This will be the first chance for the team to see what effect Vick’s case has on attendance at the Georgia Dome. Vick wears the biggest selling jersey in team history and is given much credit for its 51 consecutive sellouts.
