first_imgTUSCALOOSA — Iron Bowls cause a great deal joy and anguish for the players, depending on the outcome.Alabama’s senior class experienced both ends of the spectrum against Auburn in the last four years.The Crimson Tide is still smarting from last year’s dramatic loss. That’s why the seniors hope to go out on a positive note against the Tigers tonight in Bryant-Denny Stadium.“It means a lot,” senior safety Nick Perry said of the game. “It’s my last game in Bryant-Denny. I want to go out on top.”Perry, from Prattville, grew up an Alabama fan, even though he lived in the middle of the two schools.As soon as Alabama offered him a scholarship, he jumped at the opportunity. And a big reason was to play in the Iron Bowl.“Just the tradition and how big of a deal it is in Alabama,” Perry said. “Growing up in Alabama, the Iron Bowl has always been the biggest game of the year. I’m just fortunate to be a part of it.”Perry’s first highlight of the game was in 2011, a 42-14 victory at Jordan-Hare Stadium that led to the national championship game.He’s also fond of the 2012 win, 49-0, in Bryant-Denny Stadium on the way to another national championship. Perry started that game and assisted on two tackles.“Just winning the Iron Bowl is a great feeling,” Perry said.The disappointments stick out most for senior offensive tackle Austin Shepherd. He experienced helplessness of the two losses that bookend the wins.His first Iron Bowl was the 28-27 loss at home in 2010. Shepherd was redshirting that year. He could only watch as Cam Newton threw the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter and completed Alabama’s second-half meltdown after leading 24-0 at halftime.Shepherd also felt the hurt of the Auburn’s last-second win last season on a missed field goal returned for a touchdown.“It’s been a couple of disappointments,” Shepherd said. “I’ve been around a lot of crazy stuff in Iron Bowls.”Still, he’s ready for one more to make his memories of the game pleasant.“Always great energy,” Shepherd said. “I know the stadium is going to be rocking for sure. It’s always a good game and it always matters, so I love playing in games like that. Those are the best games to play in.”Senior quarterback Blake Sims will play a major role in the game for the first time.He watched them as a backup his entire career, except for the brief opportunity to run the ball six times for 25 yards in the 2012 blowout.“At the beginning of the season, I guess you can say I dreamed about it,” Sims said of the Iron Bowl start. “I’m looking forward to this game and playing my role and executing the best I can.”Having been on the sidelines each game, he was able to take in the atmosphere and was impressed.“It’s been great,” Sims said. “I’ve seen a lot of players come through that and have been very legendary from the game. There’s a lot of memories and hopefully that will be the memory of this game. Hopefully, we can just do what we have to do.”Being on the periphery of the team as a redshirt early on, he saw the agony of the 2010 loss. It stuck with him, just like Shepherd “The 2010 game, that’s something that hurt a lot of people,” Sims said. “We tried to use that as a motivation, and I feel like it helped us. In 2011, we did a good job. The main thing we’re trying to do, the way we played in 2011, that’s what we look back to if we’re looking to the past. We’re looking to 2011 and hoping we can do what we have to do like we did then.”Motivational posters adorned the Crimson Tide locker room in 2011 saying “Never Again” to remind players to never let Auburn come back on them again.That technique wasn’t used again after last year’s defeat, but the motivation was already there for the seniors who felt earlier disappointment.“Coach (Nick) Saban does not want to do that,” Sims said of the posters. “He keeps reminding us and reminding us to stay to the future. Stay to the future and don’t worry about the past.”That’s what the Crimson Tide seniors accomplished all year. They’ve looked to reach their national title goal one more time.To them, Auburn is the next opponent in their way.last_img read more

Here is the original story on Manziel’s middle finger and here is the Redskins’ reaction to it.  The fine is extremely small and little more than a warning to Manziel.  Manziel has already been an off the field head case to the Browns and the first-round pick will be starting the season on the bench.  Manziel had everything going for him – including a chance to win the Browns’ starting job.  Instead, Manziel partied all off season and got way too full of himself.Here is the tweet from Schefter on the fine.Browns QB Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for flipping bird at Redskins bench Monday night, per league source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 22, 2014 Please follow and like us:last_img read more

first_imgJuventus concerned over Aaron Ramsey strugglesby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJuventus management have concerns over Aaron Ramsey’s season start.The Wales international left Arsenal in the summer and moved to Turin on a free transfer.The Daily Mail says with just three starts across all competitions so far this season, Ramsey is just an added cost to the income statement and has not yet proved the value the Old Lady had hoped for.Juventus have, so far, not been satisfied with their summer investment.Since his injury as an Arsenal player away to Napoli in April in the Europa League, Ramsey has played just a handful of games. The Caerphilly-born midfielder is muscular yet fragile and at the age of 30, he finds rapid physical recovery difficult to achieve. Then there is a secondary layer to his struggles. It seems to those at the club that Ramsey has not understood the correct rhythm and demands of Italian style training. About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_img Facebook Login/Register With: Advertisement But in October 2015 a few members of Sudbury’s filmmaking community decided it was time to unionize to receive the benefits that have been commonplace in other sectors locally.Matthew Ellis, currently first assistant art director with the locally produced show “The Food Market”, and a nine-year veteran of Sudbury’s film sector, was one of those film technicians to get the ball rolling on unionization.Instead of reinventing the wheel, Ellis and his colleagues decided it made more sense to join and expand a union that already had 24 members with northeastern Ontario’s live theatre sector.That union is the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, its Territories and Canada (IATSE) — Local 634. The union opened its doors to local film technicians, who already had similar skills and qualifications to their peers in live theatre.Since then, the union’s local membership has ballooned to 250 technicians in Sudbury, Parry Sound,  North Bay, Timmins and Sault Ste. Mary.Ellis said now that it has established itself in northeastern Ontario, IATSE Local 634 can leverage jobs for its members.“A lot of people think the unions will scare away producers, but it’s a symbiotic relationship,” he said. “They’re going to get the best crew from us. They’re coming to us.“When you have a pool to pull from, of 250 technicians across all departments, it’s very appealing to a production.”Once a production brokers a deal with the union, they sign a collective agreement that includes stipulations for overtime and contributions into a registered savings plan for the union members.Ellis said the local plans to purchase a health plan for its members within the next six months.The size of a production dictates the terms of the collective agreement, said Ellis.In recent years, larger productions have come to Northern Ontario – thanks to tax incentives and funds from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation – that have allowed Local 634 to set aside funds for training and development.There are currently three Tier A shows shooting in northeastern Ontario (with budgets of $2 million or more per episode). Those shows are “John Cardinal”, “Eye Witness” and “The Food Market”.Ellis said the union local was able to use funds the “John Cardinal” production had set aside for the training and development of its members to host a two-day symposium Sept. 24 and Sept. 25. The symposium included 14 certified courses for members on everything from working at heights to accounting. https://www.sudbury.com/local-news/train-the-new-film-industry-and-sudbury-will-succeed-expert-423079Ellis said the courses gave members the skills to do their jobs safer and better, making them even more attractive to producers looking for film crews.The union is also making careers in film more attractive to people in the region, Ellis said, thanks to the benefits it can provide for workers in the industry.“There are hundreds of people with careers in film now,” Ellis said.But Ellis said now that IATSE 634 has 250 members, the focus is shifting more towards additional training and development for those members, as opposed to recruiting new members. Until recently, basic benefits and recognized overtime were not a reality for most film crew members in Northern Ontario.Film technicians – including workers with the electrical, transportation , hair and makeup, wardrobe, sets and props, construction and special effects departments – would sign a contract with a local production and get paid a daily rate that wouldn’t change based on hours worked.If film technicians wanted to invest into a registered savings plan, they would have to do so on their own, and wouldn’t get matching funds from their employer. And benefits were non-existent. Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – Opposition parties say that a plan to shift more than $2 billion worth of federal infrastructure spending points to problems with one of the government’s cornerstone programs, despite what the Liberals say.The cash comes from planned spending in multiple years and multiple funds set up by the Liberals and the previous Conservative government, as well as large-scale projects, such as the Champlain Bridge replacement in Montreal.More details are expected some time next week when departmental reports are tabled in Parliament.Conservative infrastructure critic Michael Chong said he is hearing concerns from cities that they don’t have enough time to spend their transit and water money, pointing to a need to change the terms and conditions on the Liberal infrastructure cash.“This is not just a cash flow issue, this is actually impacting real infrastructure decisions that are being taken on the ground,” Chong said.He also said the delay conveniently helps the government “with its ballooning deficit, something that they’re clearly worried about.”NDP critic Matthew Dube said the figures should give the government some pause as it negotiates longer-term agreements with provinces and territories to make sure the money delivers the social and economic benefits the Liberals have promised.“We can brag about how much money is being invested into infrastructure, but at the end of the day, if the shovels aren’t in the ground, and the projects aren’t happening … you can’t start looking at that upside.”Infrastructure Canada’s website shows that as of last Friday, there was about $20.5 billion left unspent across 13 different programs, including two set up by the Liberals. More than half the money, about $12.8 billion, is from the marquee infrastructure fund the Tories set up.The two Liberal funds — one for public transit projects, the other for water systems — have together doled out about $82 million, leaving about $5.2 billion unspent.The federal government regularly has to carry over infrastructure money from one fiscal year to the next: Spending analyses have shown about one-quarter of infrastructure funds don’t get spent in the year for which they are budgeted.Federal dollars only flow once project proponents submit receipts for reimbursement, often leaving a lag of weeks, months or years between when work takes place and when infrastructure money is actually spent. Projects can also be delayed for reasons beyond the control of the federal government, such as bad weather or a labour disruption.The Liberals have already carried over $828 million to this fiscal year because it couldn’t be spent in the 12 months leading up to April 1.Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi said Tuesday that the majority of the approximately 4,000 projects the government has approved for funding since November 2015 are underway, based on the information cities and provinces have provided the Liberals — even though federal payments so far are a fraction of what’s budgeted.Sohi said the government’s plan to move funding to later years has more to do with cash flow management than it does with the state of infrastructure work.“We’re the last ones to pay out because that’s how the system works,” Sohi said. “If you visit various communities where these projects are being funded, you can actually see the work being done.”The Liberals promised in the last election to move unspent infrastructure money into the gas tax fund that goes directly to cities for transit, water or roads projects.The government closed out several old infrastructure programs at the end of March, giving the gas tax fund $30.1 million of money that provinces didn’t earmark for any projects.That won’t happen in this case because the money comes from programs that still have years left before they expire.— Follow @jpress on Twitter.last_img read more
