It may be counterintuitive to think that the Arkansas Razorbacks’ passing game could improve this season given that former standout receiver Treylon Burks is plying his NFL trade with the Tennessee Titans rather than playing his senior year with the Hogs.

Maybe it’s just crazy to think the Hogs’ overall passing game could be better without Burks?

After all, Burks had 66 catches for 1,104 yards last season as the primary option for Razorback quarterback KJ Jefferson. Critics might even say that Burks was mostly his only option last year, or the only one he was really looking for before he started racing.

As you probably know, Jefferson was the Razorbacks’ leading running back last fall with 664 rushing yards. Jefferson actually rushed for 838 yards on 146 carries before losing 174 yards, mostly to sacks in the passing game.

I think it’s fair to say that Jefferson and the Hogs as a whole depended on Burks last season, and why not, the man delivered like Federal Express. Had Burks returned for his senior season, he likely would have crushed most if not all of Arkansas’ career by receiving records with a healthy season.

But has that addiction had a general chilling effect on Arkansas’ passing game?

Next showdown for No. 19 Razorbacks

Opponent: Cincinnati
When: 2:30 p.m. Saturday, September 3
Where: Razorback Stadium, Fayetteville
Diffusion: ESPN

Remaining schedule

September 10 – South Carolina
September 17 – State of Missouri
September 24 – Texas A&M at Arlington
October 1 – Alabama
October 8 – in the state of Mississippi
October 15 – at BYU
October 29 – at Auburn
November 5 – Freedom
November 12 – LSU
November 19 – Ole Miss
November 25 – in Missouri

I think so. Intuitively, Jefferson knew that getting the ball to Burks was almost always the Hogs’ best option for a big play, so often he was just looking for him instead of moving through the progression of his course tree. For a relatively inexperienced quarterback with legs, that was probably his best bet at the time — get the ball in the hands of your best weapon or run.

However, this reliance on Burks might have had a general chilling effect on the rest of the host corps. When you know the ball is probably not coming your way, it’s hard to put in the maximum effort every time. It’s just human nature. Unfortunately, most college players can’t just turn the tap on and off. If you ride at three-quarters most of the time, that ends up becoming your top speed most of the time.

We saw the results of the Razorbacks’ reliance on Burks in the Outback Bowl. The receivers had trouble opening and Jefferson had trouble finding them. Cleverly, Arkansas offensive coordinator Kendall Briles relied heavily on the quarterback rush, and Jefferson and backup QB Malik Hornsby ran all over a depleted Penn State defense that was missing several starters. who have retired from the bowl game.

As Briles told reporters during his media interview during training camp, he’s not worried about the stats. He just wants to win. That’s exactly what the Hogs did in running over the Nittany Lions, 24-10. Running the ball led to a victory over Penn State in the only game between the two proud programs.

The Hogs won, but the way Arkansas won is why analysts like Tim Tebow and Jordan Rodgers don’t rank KJ Jefferson among the best quarterbacks in the SEC.

By the way, Tebow and Rodgers will be on campus this weekend for their SEC Nation TV program which airs at 9 a.m. Saturday on the SEC Network ahead of the ESPN No. 19 Razorbacks TV season opener at 2:30 p.m. with the No. 23 Cincinnati Bearcats.

The Paul Finebaum also hails from Fayetteville at 2 p.m., and “Marty and McGee” will kick off Saturday’s festivities at 8 a.m. Host Marty Smith almost said John Daly would be a guest on Saturday morning. The stage for all three programs will be set up on the lawn at Old Main, unless rain forces other plans.

Both Tebow and Rodgers see Jefferson as a runner who chops the ball up, but not really a skilled passer. It’s kind of ironic that Tebow made a name for himself as a quarterback for the Florida Gators.

These pundits wonder what the Hogs will do without Burks, and that’s legitimate.

I personally think we’re going to see growth in the Razorbacks’ passing game. Jefferson is going to go through his progressions this season, and because of that, the big, fast receiving body Razorback is going to break his tail to open up and make plays.

Come midseason, returns like Warren Thompson and Ketron Jackson Jr. as well as transfers like Matt Landers and Jadon Haselwood will be known and respected by the Arkansas fan base and Hogs opponents.

Is this a pie-in-the-sky perspective on the Razorbacks passing game? Probably, but until there is evidence on the ground in the country, I’m going to expect the best, rather than the worst.

What I like the most about Pittman as a coach is his positive attitude. He strongly believes that people speak results through their vision and their attitude. Pittman is so positive with people, and especially with his players. The Hogs Plus streaming service currently has a standout feature on Pittman, in which he wears a microphone while working out. Positivity just emanates from the man.

Now he coaches and corrects, but Pittman does it with encouragement and affirmation, and you can see the players bursting with pride and self-esteem. Undoubtedly, the piece has been edited and is only an excerpt from a two-hour practice, but it certainly gives you an idea of ​​how the man directs and guides his program. That positivity has been key to Jefferson’s development and will be with the receiving corps this season.

Hog fan confidence currently appears to be at its highest level in a decade. I think that’s fine, but Cincinnati isn’t a one-year wonder of a program. The Bearcats had a lot of turnover last year, but coach Luke Fickell has a mature program. Cincinnati is reloading this season, rather than rebuilding.

Pittman summed up his eagerness and anxiety for Wednesday’s season opener in his last media encounter until after the game.

“The first game, you better be ready because you have no idea what they’re about to do,” Pittman said. “They have their basics, but you walk into LSU and they have you covered zero all night. You go to a different party than you expected…You have to adapt…These first matches are different. You don’t know what they’re going to throw at you… You learn a lot about your team in the first two or three overs of Game 1.

Much more will be known about this Razorback team around 6 p.m. Saturday, but there’s no certainty in the SEC or with a schedule like the Hogs.

Speaking recently with longtime football watcher Razorback, he summed up the Arkansas schedule as well as anyone.

He said it looks like the Razorbacks have a certain win at Missouri State and a likely loss to Alabama. He tagged the other 10 draw games. I think that’s a pretty nifty summary of an incredibly tough schedule for what could be Razorback’s best team in a decade, whether they finish 7-5 in the regular season or 10-2.

Terrence Williams pleaded guilty in a fraud case involving 17 other former NBA players, according to the Associated Press.

An October 2021 indictment accused Williams, 35, of orchestrating an effort to commit health care fraud and identity theft involving the NBA health plan. He filed his plea Friday in Manhattan federal court and will be sentenced in January. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison for conspiracy and a mandatory two-year sentence for identity theft.

The scheme involved false claims and documents submitted to the health plan for reimbursement of medical and dental expenses. Authorities reported that at least $5 million in false claims were filed by former players from 2017 to 2021.

US attorney Damian Williams said Terrence Williams took at least $300,000 in bribes as the ringleader of the scam. He recruited other former players to participate and gave them fake papers to submit.

Under a plea deal, Terrence Williams will pay $2.5 million in restitution to the health care plan and forfeit more than $650,000 to the federal government. He has been in detention since the beginning of the year, when he was accused of threatening a witness.

Terrence Williams, the 11th pick in the 2009 draft, played for the Nets, Rockets, Kings and Celtics during his four-year NBA career.

LGBTQ Resource Center to Benefit from Anti-Gay Church Sanctions for Illegal Portrayals of Hamilton – Baptist News Global https://atriunfar.net/lgbtq-resource-center-to-benefit-from-anti-gay-church-sanctions-for-illegal-portrayals-of-hamilton-baptist-news-global/ Thu, 25 Aug 2022 09:33:21 +0000 https://atriunfar.net/lgbtq-resource-center-to-benefit-from-anti-gay-church-sanctions-for-illegal-portrayals-of-hamilton-baptist-news-global/ Did you hear the one on the church who ripped off Broadway’s most successful musical of the moment, rewrote parts of the script, and turned it into an altar evangelistic event?

Did you hear the one on the church who ripped off Broadway’s most successful musical of the moment, rewrote parts of the script, and turned it into an altar evangelistic event? It turns out that the anti-gay church in McAllen, Texas will pay damages to the copyright holders of hamiltonwho in turn plan to donate the money to an LGBTQ resource center in church town.

Leaders of The Door Christian Fellowship are now likely to wish they hadn’t been in the room where it happened.

Let’s take this story from above.

hamilton, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, remains Broadway’s highest-grossing new show and is — hands down — the most talked about new show of the decade. The show has been hailed as transformative in the theater world, is now touring nationally, and has been made into an equally successful film version.

The Door Christian Fellowship describes itself as a “non-denominational, Spirit-filled, Bible-based family of believers.” The 32-year-old congregation is based in McAllen, which is located on the southernmost tip of Texas, just across the border from Reynosa, Mexico. McAllen and Harlingen are the two largest towns at the bottom of the state and are just a bit inland from South Padre Island.

The church changed the plot and some lyrics to refer to Jesus and to show that Alexander Hamilton was repentant.

On August 5 and 6, the church staged an unauthorized version of hamilton — regional theaters can’t even get permission to stage this show yet — and streamed the performance online. Additionally, the church changed the plot and some lyrics to refer to Jesus and to show that Alexander Hamilton was repentant. The church ended its performance with a sermon invite people “struggling” with alcohol, drugs or homosexual orientation to ask for forgiveness.

In legal terms, this amounts to not just one violation, but multiple violations: unauthorized performance, unauthorized modifications of copyrighted material, unauthorized online performance.

For example, in the song “Enough,” sung in Hamilton by his wife Eliza, she says, “I know who I married, as long as you come home at the end of the day, that would be enough. The church changed its sentence to: “My hope is in Jesus, if you could give him a chance today, that would be enough.”

On August 23, McAllen Church released a statement on its social media platforms and on its website homepage regarding Pastor Roman Gutierrez’s offense.

Romain Gutierrez

“On behalf of The Door Christian Fellowship McAllen Church, I would like to personally apologize to the creator of hamiltonLin-Manuel Miranda, the producers of hamiltonand the many others who contributed their intellectual property to hamiltonfor arranging an unauthorized production of hamilton which infringed the rights and copyrights of many.

“The Christian Gate Fellowship McAllen Church has not requested or received any license from the producers or creators of Hamilton to produce, stage, reproduce or modify any part of hamilton; nor did we seek prior permission to alter Lin-Manuel Miranda’s work by changing music, lyrics, removing songs and adding dialogue.

“We respect the copyrights of from Hamilton author and contributors. These copyrights are protected by federal law. We recognize that there are legal ways to obtain a license to stage properties that we have not pursued. And it is never allowed to modify an artistic work such as hamilton without legal permission. I acknowledge as pastor of the church that I have an obligation and responsibility to follow the law and educate our community on these protocols. Our ministry will use this time as a learning opportunity about protected artistic works and intellectual property.

“On behalf of The Door Christian Fellowship McAllen Church, we agree that we will never stage the performance again and will destroy all video or sound recordings and images of unauthorized performances or rehearsals, and ask all of our members to do the same. . Finally, we will pay damages for our actions.

In general, legal penalties for copyright infringement range from $200 to $150,000 per violation. Courts can also order infringers to pay the copyright owner’s legal fees.

How much this damage total was not disclosed. In general, legal penalties for copyright infringement range from $200 to $150,000 per violation. Courts can also order infringers to pay the copyright owner’s legal fees.

The Hamilton producers released their own statement:hamilton will donate all damages paid by The Door Christian Fellowship McAllen Church to the South Texas Equality Project. The South Texas Equality Project is a coalition of organizations working to advocate, celebrate, uplift, educate, and provide support for the LGBTQIA+ community in the Rio Grande Valley.

While this is a flagrant – and probably costly – violation of copyright law by a church, the problem of the church ignoring copyright is not new.

These violations can range from clever corporate logo ripoffs to spiritualized T-shirts (think “Jesus Christ” in Coca-Cola font) to illegal duplication of music, unauthorized performances, unauthorized rewrites of lyrics . (Has anyone ever sung “Praise the Lord” to “Edelweiss”?)

Churches have a religious exemption to make or broadcast music recordings in their live worship services. The key words here are “live” and “worship services.” The exemption does not extend to recordings or even live streaming, and the use must take place as part of a regular worship service. Even so, “dramatic-musical” works – such as hamilton — are expressly excluded from this exemption.

Churches also commonly violate copyright laws by making copies of music.

There are legal ways to circumvent some of the most common copyright issues for churches, including special third-party licensing. However, none of these solutions apply to theatrical works, which always require special licenses, if not available.

Brotherhood Mutual, one of the nation’s largest church insurers, offers this general advice: “While there are some limited exceptions to copyright protection, your ministry should always investigate the status of copyright. author of any literary, musical, dramatic or audio-visual works before using them. Mere crediting of the creator of copyrighted works used in a newsletter or program is no defense to charges of copyright infringement.

The government plans to introduce a new insurance scheme offering more facilities to Bangladeshi expats from December this year as the existing insurance policy will expire at the end of 2022.

The new plan, which will be implemented by the state-owned Jiban Bima Corporation, includes increasing the insurance coverage up to Tk5 lakh from the existing Tk4 lakh, reducing the premium and extending of the police to five years instead of two years.

This means that Bangladeshi expats will be eligible for insurance support in the event of death or serious injury during the five-year insured period.

Ahmed Munirus Saleheen, secretary of the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment, told The Business Standard that they would further expand the scope and benefits of the insurance.

“The government is working to make the formal channels more attractive so that more people go abroad and send money home. We will soon implement the new insurance policy,” he said. added.

According to the new insurance scheme, the single premium will be 200-250 Tk, as the amount is now 490 Tk.

Jiban Bima Corporation says it is planning such a policy after being instructed by the high level of government to provide special benefits to “remittance warriors”.

The new program also offers support for expats if they need to return home after losing their jobs six months or a year after migration, according to the company.

However, the company says there is no data available on how many workers return home each year after losing their jobs.

The public insurer said it would finalize the program after obtaining information from the Wage Earners’ Welfare Board.

Jiban Bima Corporation prepared the new plan on July 28 following a meeting to review insurance benefits provided to expatriate workers on April 12. Representatives of Wage Earners’ Welfare Board, Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training, Bangladesh Overseas Employment and Services Limited, Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment and Financial Institutions Division were present at this meeting.

During this meeting, the company was invited to submit an insurance plan with greater facilities for expatriates.

“Expats are people worthy of the country. They are now the lifeline of the country’s economy. As the remittances they send play an important role, the new program has been designed to provide them with better services. “, said Saiful Islam, managing director of the Jiban Bima Corporation, told The Business Standard,

Jiban Bima insurance is compulsory for all Bangladeshi nationals traveling abroad for work. The Wage Earners’ Welfare Board collects bonuses on behalf of expatriates and pays them to the company.

In 2016, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued instructions to impose insurance on all outgoing workers. In December 2019, she inaugurated the insurance scheme for expatriates.

Referring to the Prime Minister’s measures, Saiful Islam said everyone at the political level wanted to provide more facilities for expatriates.

According to company officials, the insurance was Tk2 lakh at the start with a premium of Tk990. The term of the insurance policy was initially two years.

In December 2020, the Wage Earners’ Welfare Board signed a new contract with Jiban Bima Corporation after the agreement expired. The premium was later reduced to Tk 490, the coverage was increased up to Tk 4 lakh and the period of insurance remained unchanged.

This agreement will expire in December this year, paving the way for the new regime.

The secretary of the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare said the government is taking initiatives to identify the problems expatriate workers face when sending remittances home through a formal channel. Representatives from the ministry, central bank and banking sector will visit major overseas labor markets to see various other issues of Bangladeshis working overseas, he told TBS, referring to the government plans for migrant welfare. “We are working on improving the facilities for expatriate workers at airports in Bangladesh. We are also trying to provide them with better services at our overseas missions,” said Ahmed Munirus Saleheen, saying a coverage of wider insurance will be part of a series of things planned to serve. remittance warriors are better.

In addition, ongoing services such as legal support and loan facilities will be made more efficient while measures will be taken for proper reintegration once expatriates return home, he added.

A good deal too

In Bangladesh, about 6 lakh workers go abroad every year. Since the launch of the insurance in 2019, the company receives Tk 490 from each of the workers.

As young people make up a large portion of overseas workers, Jiban Bima Corporation has faced fewer insurance claims – raking in profits for the state-run organization every year.

According to the Ministry of Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment, the company received Tk 53.34 crore as a bonus for 853,573 workers from December 2019 to 2021. Against the bonus, Jiban Bima had paid the claims insurance of Tk 2.72 crore of 103 expatriate workers.

A Jiban Bima official said an insurance claim is only filed when an expatriate dies abroad. They usually do not get a claim even if the workers suffer serious injuries.

“Injured or ill people do not file insurance claims because they are abroad. Also, the company cannot verify such a claim if the claimant is not in the country. Therefore, we grant priority to insurance claims in the event of death,” the official added while speaking to TBS on condition of anonymity.

Chowdhury Rafiqul Abrar, Executive Director of the Refugee and Migrant Movements Research Unit (RMMRU) told TBS that a broad campaign should be carried out so that expatriates know the details of the insurance scheme and draw the maximum benefit from the initiative.

He said that the process of obtaining insurance benefits or the insurance claim process should be much easier so that expatriate workers or their families get the desired service without hassle.

The premium should not be given as a subsidy, Dr Abrar suggested, as he believed that expatriates would own the insurance scheme once they pay the premium themselves.

The Ravens are on a liaison trip, but it’s also a work trip.

Afternoon temperatures were in the mid-90s on Friday in Tempe, Ariz., but that didn’t stop the Ravens from practicing for more than two hours outside the training facility at the Arizona State. Their four-day stay in Arizona will culminate with Sunday night’s preseason game against the Cardinals, and it’s the kind of extended trip the Ravens couldn’t plan for during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. .

Head Coach John Harbaugh and many players thought it would be important to take a pre-season trip that would build camaraderie and build relationships for a 17-game regular season that will put them to the test of many manners. Even before Friday night’s team dinner, Harbaugh saw the benefit of deciding to leave early for Arizona. The Ravens left Thursday afternoon and won’t return until after Sunday’s game.

“We went through a situation in a recent season where we had to train and go home, and either we had to have zoom meetings, or we had to keep six feet apart,” Harbaugh said after Friday’s practice. “It weighs on the teams and on people in general.

“Now that we’re back together, we felt we should take advantage of the situation. Let’s see if we can spend four or five days together on the road. What starts on the pitch, it shows on the pitch. Whether that whether it’s work ethic, discipline, or relationships, building those kinds of connections is important.”

The Ravens had originally planned to practice indoors on Friday, but the players preferred to practice on grass which is easier on their legs than on an artificial surface. So, Harbaugh made the switch to work on the outside court, and the players showed their commitment with a solid session.

“The practice was sharp, it was sharp, it was hot,” Harbaugh said. “But we had another good day at work, and the guys were in good spirits.

CHEBOYGAN — On Thursday, the Cheboygan County Veterans Services Office, in partnership with the Michigan Veterans Agency, hosted a Veterans Benefits Fair at the Cheboygan Eagles Club.

The event is designed to showcase local and regional resources for veterans.

“We had about 200 people there,” said Sara Cunningham, a veterans services officer for Cheboygan County. “There were 30 vendors or organizations there, with 41 representatives from those organizations and others, as well as 11 volunteers helping out.”

Cunningham said the event was a great success, especially with the high turnout. Prior to the benefit fair, organizers were unsure what kind of turnout to expect since the event was scheduled to take place during county fair week.

“Our fair was great. We stayed busy the whole time,” said Cheboygan County Veterans Services Officer Brian Crittenden. “Hopefully we have reached a lot of people who didn’t know the services were available to them.”

The goal of the event was to connect veterans not just in Cheboygan County, but across the region, with housing, health care, education, and nonprofit resources. It was the first time the event had been held in two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sarah Battice, volunteer services coordinator at McLaren Health Management Group, was among more than 30 vendors who set up tables at the 2022 Veterans Benefits Fair on Thursday.

These resources included the Disabled American Veterans Office, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Military OneSource, Habitat for Humanity and Restore, Mission Six Service Dogs, Hospice of Michigan, Michigan Works, and many others. Several county Veterans Services offices were also available to help veterans with their issues.

Veterans were also able to get copies of their retrieved and printed DD-214 discharge documents. They could also get answers to their questions about filing disability claims and other documents through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Several vendors had tables set up at the Veterans Benefits Fair to showcase employment opportunities available to local veterans if they were looking for work, including Coca-Cola Bottling.

“I’ve met a lot of veterans and people with resources to help veterans. I want to thank them all,” Crittenden said. “If they couldn’t come to the fair, they can come to our office or call us. We’re here to help all veterans.”

Any Cheboygan County veteran in need of any assistance is encouraged to contact the Cheboygan County Veterans Services Office by calling (231) 627-8883 or emailing scunningham@cheboygancounty .net or brianc@cheboygancounty.net.

In a pair of gruesome scenes on Saturday that deepened the tragedy of a recent deadly fire in eastern Pennsylvania, a man rammed his car into a fundraising event for families affected by that blaze, killing a and wounding 17, then drove off and fatally beat a woman before police arrested him, authorities said.

Four of those injured in the crash in Berwick, a borough about 45 miles southwest of Scranton, were in critical condition late Saturday, said Joseph H. Stender III, a spokesman for the Geisinger Medical Center, where many victims were taken away. The woman was found dead in the nearby neighborhood of Nescopeck, which was the site of the deadly August 5 fire that tore through a two-story house and killed 10 people.

The fundraiser was intended to benefit victims and families of the house fire, including Harold Baker, a volunteer firefighter who responded to the blaze and ended up losing his 22-year-old daughter and son of 19, along with six other family members, in the fire. Among those killed in the Nescopeck fire were three children, ages 5, 6 and 7, Pennsylvania State Police said. The oldest victim was 79 years old.

In a cruel twist, just eight days after the fire, Mr Baker responded at the scene Saturday in Nescopeck, where the woman was killed. He said a daughter-in-law and several other relatives were injured and his daughter-in-law’s aunt was killed in the fundraiser accident. “I haven’t dealt with the fire yet and now I have to deal with this,” he said.

In a statement late Saturday, Pennsylvania State Police called the crime scenes “very active.” The statement said the suspect was arrested by local police at the scene of the murder and was in custody pending criminal charges. His name has not been disclosed.

Saturday night’s crash added another wave of grief to a small community devastated by the August 5 blaze that authorities described as “violent” and “powerful”. The cause of the fire has not been disclosed. At a press conference Saturday night, Trooper Anthony Petroski said the suspect in Saturday’s death was not a current suspect in the fire, according to the Times-Leader of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Locals struggled to make sense of what had happened in just over a week. The confusion and anger were compounded because there were so many unanswered questions about the fire, Robin Massina, a Berwick resident who is the daughter of the mayor of Nescopeck, said in an interview on Saturday evening.

“What is this madness?” said Madame Massina. “Why is this happening? We’re a small town that probably hasn’t made the headlines since the 1978 flood.”

She said the community had pulled together after the fire and she believed enough money had been raised for families to bury their loved ones and get back on their feet. Saturday’s event demonstrated the spirit of community, but the violence that followed destroyed the healing process.

Prior to the accident, Lauren Hess, the owner of the poisons department, the bar and restaurant that hosted the event, said she quickly planned the event to help those affected by the fire, according to WNEP, a Scranton-based television station. Donations from the community poured in, she said.

“I got a call on Friday and immediately said, ‘What can I do to help them because they’re going through so much grief and pain? ‘” Ms Hess told the station, adding that she was friends with mothers who have lost children. in the fire.

The event began cheerfully, with scenes of laughing children, country music and water balloon fights. “It’s going to be an amazing day!” the organizers had posted on Facebook early Saturday.

The bar released a statement Saturday night on Facebook calling the day “an absolute tragedy” and said it would be closed until further notice.

Ms Massina, the daughter of the mayor of Nescopeck, said the community rarely sees violence “other than your stupid Saturday night bar fights”.

“And now it’s devastation after devastation, literally days apart,” she said.
