Josh Brent Now Banned From Cowboys Sideline

Josh Brent, who surprised Dallas Cowboys management with his appearance on the team’s sideline Sunday against Pittsburgh, was banned from doing so again by the team Tuesday.Just two weeks after driving a car that crashed and killed teammate Jerry Brown — an accident for which he faces intoxication manslaughter charges – Brent spent more than half of Dallas’ victory over Pittsburgh on the sideline among teammates. He left in the third quarter.The Cowboys and officials in the NFL’s offices were unaware that Brent — who is on the reserve/non-football injury list — would be on the sideline. Both the team and the league agree that it was not appropriate, sources told ESPN.Several of Brent’s teammates encouraged him to attend Sunday’s game, but coach Jason Garrett, who spoke to Brent the day before the game, said he did not know about it until pregame warm-ups.The game already had begun when Garrett realized Brent was on the sideline, and owner Jerry Jones didn’t know until he saw Brent on television.Garrett said Monday that Cowboys players were following the wishes of Brown’s mother, Stacey Jackson, who asked the team to include Brent as much as they could, as part of his healing.Brent attended the game, but had to be convinced to do so.  He was driven by a teammate on injured reserve, according to ESPN,  who told Brent that all of his teammates wanted him to be there. But when Brent learned his being there became a point of contention for some, he left Cowboys Stadium in the third quarter.Meanwhile, a judge ordered Brent to wear an electronic ankle monitor, and also modified conditions for his continued release. His bond was reduced from $500,000 to $100,000 during his Tuesday court appearance.Brent also was ordered not to consume alcohol or drive until he has a valid Texas license, and he was fitted with a SCRAM device that will detect any alcohol consumption. The judge warned Brent that any violation of these terms will result in him being immediately returned to jail.Heath Harris, the first assistant district attorney, said he expected Irving police to file a case against Brent with prosecutors this week. Prosecutors hope to present their case to a grand jury before the end of the year, Harris said. read more

An apt message as Inter Milan prepare for a must-win Champions League tie against PSV on Tuesday.“My new book is different compared to my last one: it doesn’t concern my career as a footballer, but my adventure as a director,” Zanetti told the club’s website.“This is an important new stage in my life. Many people thought I would only be focusing on the sporting side of things, but for me, it’s vital to look at things from all aspects and to make my contribution to all the club’s projects.“The biggest challenge is sustainability. We are working with this in mind: we are taking part in many international projects with the aim of increasing the amount of money coming in. After a career as a footballer, this new challenge fascinates me a lot.“I am making my contribution so that the club can increase its revenue and the team can become more competitive. Inter has changed a lot.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“Ownership changes have taken place and I feel very comfortable in transmitting the values of the club as we look to continue along the path we’ve taken.”Inter Milan need to beat PSV in San Siro and hope Barcelona at least draw with Tottenham for them to qualify for the knockout stages.“Before we think about the result in the match between Barcelona and Tottenham, we need to do our job. We need to win our match, although it won’t be easy.“We will have to do our best to beat PSV Eindhoven, and then we can hope for a positive result at Camp Nou. Based on our performances, I think we deserve to make the Round of 16. Let’s hope we do,” Zanetti said.“We knew it would be a difficult group when the draw was made, but we also knew there was the possibility we could do well. We want to keep playing until the end, and we have to approach the match with confidence.”last_img read more

Tota Miahs Bharta offers for foodies

first_img.A restaurant selling heavy local foods in a remote village of Gazipur attracts hundreds of food lovers of different places to taste traditional items.Bharta — traditional mashed dishes made up of vegetables, fish and meat — is the main offer of Tota Miah’s ‘Niribili Restaurant’ or the restaurant of tranquility.And the number of items of such Bharta that are served there from time to time is unthinkably high — 70.Every day, around 300 foodies visit ‘Niribili Restaurant’, which is also called Tota Miah’s Hotel, located in Tok Nayan Bazar of Kapasia upazila, Gazipur, far away from hue and cry of metropolitan life. Many people in this part of the world refer to restaurant as hotel.”I always try to serve my customers with fresh foods,” Tota Miah said.Other than Bharta, he sells around 40 items of curry and also home-made pickles.”The fishes we cook are bought directly from the fishermen so that they contain no preservatives and people can take their original taste,” Tota Miah said of quality of foods.There are 15 cooks and 5 waiters there to serve the customers from morning till late night.Nur Mohammad was one of the customers, who came along with his family members from Narsingdi on last Saturday.”We very much loved the delicious mashed dishes and they are being offered at quite reasonable prices,” he expressed his experience.The restaurant sees much more customers at the weekend — Friday and Saturday. Tota Miah’s cooks then prepare more items. In all, this restraunt offers up to 150 items at the weekend.A package of 20 different mashed dishes is sold for Tk 200 or so and a package of 15 items of curries for the same amount. A package of fish or meat curry with rice is sold for Tk 150.Tota Miah said, fifth among eight children of his parents of the locality, he had to begin working at a very young age. He first worked a waiter and later as a boiled-rice vendor.Tota Miah shifted to beach town of Cox’s Bazar and then Chittagong, seeking a better fortune. He eventually came back within a few years to venture on a restaurant of his own as the local people encouraged him to sell foods.Banking on his initial success in Niribili, Tota Miah has transformed once corrogated iron sheet house into a pucca (brick-built) house.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat.last_img read more

Canada lawmakers declare Rohingya killings genocide

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 25 August 2018 Rohingya refugees perform prayers as they attend a ceremony organised to remember the first anniversary of a military crackdown that prompted a massive exodus of people from Myanmar to Bangladesh, at the Kutupalong refugee camp in Ukhia. Photo: AFPCanadian lawmakers on Thursday unanimously voted to declare Myanmar’s military against the Rohingya people a “genocide.”The House of Commons endorsed the findings of a UN fact-finding mission on Myanmar that found “crimes against humanity have been committed against the Rohingya” and that these acts were sanctioned by top Myanmar military commanders.In a motion, Canadian lawmakers said they “recognise that these crimes against the Rohingya constitute genocide” and urged the UN Security Council to refer the case to the International Criminal Court, while also calling for Myanmar’s generals to be investigated and prosecuted “for the crime of genocide.”“I want to underscore how tragic, how horrific the crimes against the Rohingya are,” foreign minister Chrystia Freeland said. “We are leading an international effort for justice and accountability for the Rohingya.”“Today’s unanimous motion is a very important step in that effort.”A brutal military campaign drove more than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar into neighbouring Bangladesh, where they now live in cramped refugee camps.Many have given accounts of extrajudicial killings, sexual violence and arson.Bangladesh and Myanmar signed an agreement last year to repatriate the Muslim minority—but it has stalled as the Rohingya fear returning to Rakhine without their safety and rights guaranteed.last_img read more
