It was chosen as the Autobiography of the Year ahead of books by Ian Poulter, Chris Froome, Nicole Cooke, Roy Keane and Guy Martin.Ghost-written by Michael Calvin, Pearey called it “a very powerful story”.The other shortlisted rugby books were The Test by Brian O’Driscoll, The Secret Life of Twickenham by Chris Jones, Behind the Rose, Playing Rugby For England by Stephen Jones and Nick Cain, and Undefeated, the Story of the 1974 Lions by Rhodri Davies.

Home Local News Crime OPD honoring fallen officers Facebook Previous articleTEXAS VIEW: Journalists in the world still face greater dangerNext articleMeet and Greet with Miss Texas 2018 admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Related coverageFor National Police Week, the Odessa Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies will be hosting a memorial service to honor fellow officers who have been killed in the line of duty.This memorial is particularly poignant this year, as OPD Spokesman Steve LeSueur said there has been an approximate 75 percent increase in gunfire related deaths for law enforcement nationally in the last year. Why, he said, comes down to several factors.“In the last few years, there’s obviously been an increase in ambush attacks. The aggression is definitely there,” LeSueur said. “There’s a lot of reasons, not just one thing.”National Police Week was instated in 1962 as a week to honor law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty over the last year. While OPD and the Ector County Sheriff’s Office haven’t seen any officers killed in the last year, LeSueur said there have been 18 officers killed in the state of Texas and one K-9 in that time who will be honored at the ceremony with a wreath ceremony.The memorial ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Friday at Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home, 6801 East Highway 80.LeSueur said eight local officers will be honored at the ceremony who have been killed in the line of duty, including the five officers who have been killed in the history of OPD, one Ector County deputy, one Midland County deputy, and a Lubbock police officer who is buried in Odessa.“They gave the ultimate sacrifice,” LeSueur said. “They risked their lives protecting others and it’s important that they get remembered and that their lives are honored.”Of the five OPD officers who have been killed, three of them were killed on Sept. 8, 2007 on what many consider the darkest day in OPD. Cpls. Arlie Jones and Scott Gardener were shot and killed instantly that day by 59-year-old Larry Neil White, who was suffering from cancer that later killed him, and Cpl. Abel Marquez died four days later from injuries.Two other OPD officers, Officer Scott Stanton Smith and Cpl. Gordon Terry Toal, died in separate motorcycle crashes in 1988 and 1982, respectively.Also being remembered during the event will be Ector County Deputy Thad West, Midland County Deputy Mike Naylor, and Lubbock Officer Rodney Kendricks.The OPD Honor Guard and Midland Police Department Honor Guard also flew to Washington D.C. for National Police Week, and will be back in time for the memorial service Friday, LeSueur said.OPD is encouraging the public to show their support during National Police Week by replacing their porch lights with blue bulbs.If You Go Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends Twitter WhatsApp What: Police memorial ceremony.When: 10 a.m. Friday.Where: Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home, 6801 East Highway 80.

Before vanishing on paddleboard, man who owed $500,000 in child support had ‘flamboyant and expensive lifestyle’

first_imgFort Lauderdale Police Department(MIAMI) — The Florida man who mysteriously vanished on a paddleboard into the Atlantic owed $500,000 in child support — yet had been living a “flamboyant and expensive lifestyle,” according to court documents.Constantine Theoharis — who police say was last seen on March 20 near his Fort Lauderdale home, heading north into the ocean on his paddleboard — had traveled to the Bahamas, Costa Rica and ski resorts, the documents show.He was living a “flamboyant and expensive lifestyle while ignoring his child support obligations,” according to the court documents, which were filed by Theoharis’ ex-wife, Stacy.“He is refusing to pay any of his Court-ordered financial obligations,” according to documents filed in Broward County last month. “The severest of sanctions must be imposed against Former Husband, including, incarceration and the imposition of monetary fine.” Constantine and Stacy Theoharis had been divorced since 2008.In happier times, the couple married on February 28, 1998. They had two children, who are now 17 and 14 years old.But nine years after being married, the couple separated, three days before what would have been their ninth wedding anniversary.According to court documents, the couple separated “in consequence of disputes and irreconcilable differences.”At the time of the divorce, Theoharis had visitation rights two weekends per month, split holidays with his ex-wife, and had time with his children during the summers.Court papers from 2008 said he had a “recent substance abuse problem” and was ordered to undergo random drug testing four times per year until 2010.An affidavit from December said he had not paid any child support after Aug. 6, 2014.He owes more than $549,000 in child support, according to court records from last month. Constantine Theoharis does not appear to have an attorney at this time.Theoharis’ ex-wife and her lawyer declined to comment. When Theoharis, 52, mysteriously disappeared, a neighbor’s surveillance camera captured him taking off on his paddleboard, according to his brother.“It’s like the worst dream you could imagine,” his brother told ABC News on Wednesday. “I want answers.”Theoharis’ cousin, Chris Damian, reported him missing on March 23, telling police he hadn’t heard from Theoharis since March 18 when they spoke on the phone.According to the police incident report, Damian told the authorities that Theoharis had “been depressed lately and they usually talk by phone daily. … He was depressed over a recent divorce and child support payments but he was not suicidal.” Damian told police he “thinks that the child support issues could have forced him to leave the U.S. because of pending upcoming court action for nonpayment,” the incident report said.But police said Damian had “no proof that he took this type of action.”Damian said it’s unusual for his cousin to not contact anyone in the family for that long, the incident report said.When Theoharis headed into the ocean on his paddleboard, he left behind his phone, wallet, keys and passport at his house, his brother Rick Theoharis said, which alerted him that “something was way off.”Rick Theoharis said his brother was very adept in the water and a frequent paddleboarder.

Man, 20, arrested in road rage killing of 10-year-old girl: Police

first_imgPhoenix Police Department(PHOENIX) — A 20-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly gunning down a 10-year-old girl in what police called an apparent road rage killing, authorities said. Joshua Gonzalez was booked on one count of first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault in connection with the slaying of 10-year-old Summerbell Brown, Phoenix police said Friday. The truck and weapon believed to be involved in the shooting were also recovered, police said.The shooting unfolded at about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, when 10-year-old Summerbell was in the car with her sister and parents on their way home, according to Phoenix police.As the family reached their street, the girl’s father, who was driving, “thought he was going to be able to make that turn and avoid the approaching white truck,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Vince Lewis told ABC News.“He got very close,” Lewis said, but there was no collision. Then the truck followed the family’s car very closely, Lewis said. “As soon as the truck was behind the victim, he stayed relatively close, as if he was intentionally following the victim,” Lewis said. As the family turned into their driveway, the truck stopped behind them, Lewis said. “I got out of my vehicle,” Summerbell’s father, Dharquintium Brown, later told reporters. “I asked him, ‘What’s going on?’ And he just got to firing.”The suspect, who never exited his car during the shooting, fled the scene. Summerbell, who had been sitting behind the driver’s seat, was shot and pronounced dead at the hospital, police said.Dharquintium Brown on Thursday told reporters he “watched her eyes roll in the back of her head. And I pray nobody has to experience that.” “She died in front of me,” he said. Dharquintium Brown was also shot and suffered a non-life-threatening injury, police said. Summerbell’s mother and sister were not hurt.“This is heartbreaking … that I lost my baby like this,” Summerbell’s mother, Taniesha Brown, told reporters Thursday, overcome with emotion. “There was no reason for her to be taken like this. I wish it was me instead of my baby,” Taniesha Brown said. “This nightmare’s going to be playing in my head every day,” she said. “I just really hope she’s at peace.” Lewis said the suspect and victims likely did not know each other.

The Antarctic palaeo record and its role in improving predictions of future Antarctic Ice Sheet change

first_imgThis paper reviews the ways in which the palaeo record of Antarctic Ice Sheet change can be used to improve understanding of contemporary ice sheet behaviour, and thus enhance predictions of future sea-level change. The main areas where the palaeo ice sheet record can contribute are understanding long-term ice sheet trajectory; providing data against which ice sheet models can be tested; to identify and understand the range and types of natural ice sheet behaviour; to balance the global water budget; to correct contemporary glaciological measurements of mass change; and to understand the relationship between polar ecosystems and the ice sheet. I review each in turn and argue that research priorities include understanding past West Antarctic Ice Sheet collapse and its timing; a focus on the palaeo record of rapid retreat events and how these unfolded in the geological past; improving the number and range of ice sheet reconstructions, particularly through the Holocene; continuing to investigate the potential for using sediments and landforms to parameterise basal conditions in ice sheet models; and understanding past East Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics, particularly the evidence for partial deglaciation.

NCAA penalizes University of Missouri for academic fraud

first_imgJanuary 31, 2019 /Sports News – National NCAA penalizes University of Missouri for academic fraud Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailjetcityimage/iStock(INDIANAPOLIS) — The NCAA Committee on Infractions levied postseason bans for three athletics programs at the University of Missouri, Columbia on Thursday for academic misconduct involving student-athletes.According to the committee’s report, a former University of Missouri tutor completed academic work for 12 student athletes on the football, baseball and softball teams.  The completed work included courses at the University of Missouri, courses completed at other schools, and a placement exam at the University of Missouri.As a result of the violations, the committee recommended the school’s athletics department be placed on three years of probation, as well as a one-year postseason ban for the baseball, softball and football teams. Additional penalties will include scholarship and recruiting limitations. The report follows a two-year investigation. Missouri athletic director Jim Sterk released a statement saying that the school will appeal the ruling.“The Committee on Infractions has abused its discretion in applying penalties in this case,” Sterk said. “It is hard to fathom that the University could be cited for exemplary cooperation throughout this case, and yet end up with these unprecedented penalties that could unfairly and adversely impact innocent current and future Mizzou student-athletes.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
