Michigan State Board Of Trustees Member Epically Trolls Jay Harbaugh On Twitter

first_imgMichigan State Board of Trustees member Mitch Lyons.Michigan may have completely overhauled its coaching staff this offseason, but clearly, Michigan State and its fans aren’t conceding state bragging rights any time soon. Thursday night, one MSU board of trustees member made that clear.Mitch Lyons, the Vice-Chair of the Michigan State Board of Trustees, had a little fun with new Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh on Twitter. Harbaugh, clearing trying to endear himself to his new fan base, asked his followers if it was legal to own a Wolverine as a pet. Lyons responded, telling Harbaugh he should ask Coach Mark Dantonio. If you aren’t connecting the dots, he’s claiming that Dantonio owns the Wolverines.@JayHarbaugh @ryanschuiling Ask Coach D…..#GoGreen— Mitch Lyons (@mlyons85) January 23, 2015Considering Dantonio is 6-2 against Michigan in his time in East Lansing, this is an A+ troll job.

Ohio State womens ice hockey crushed twice in Wisconsin

Then-sophomore forward Katie Matheny (23) skates down the ice during a game against New Hampshire on Oct. 4, 2014 at the Ohio State Ice Rink. OSU won, 4-3. Credit: Lantern file photoAgainst the high-scoring Wisconsin Badgers, the Ohio State women’s hockey team failed to sustain momentum after its opening-weekend victories against Lindenwood, getting dismantled twice.The Buckeyes allowed 15 goals on 102 shots in the two games, including a combined five first-period goals. Conversely, the Scarlet and Gray only took a combined 29 shots of its own in the two games.The third-ranked Badgers’ goal scoring opened early on Saturday when sophomore forward Emily Clark tallied a point 30 seconds into the game. The Badgers would proceed to score three goals on the power play in the third period of the first game, en route to topping the Buckeyes 7-0.Special teams play had been an emerging strength for OSU early in the season, but the series against Wisconsin demonstrated that there is still plenty of work to be done. In addition to the three goals the Buckeyes allowed with a player in the box, the Badgers scored a goal while on the penalty kill on Saturday. The Buckeyes went 0-of-4 in power-play opportunities on Sunday, which ended as another lopsided loss by the final score of 8-0.The squad’s strongest period of play from the weekend was the second period on Sunday, when OSU recorded nine shots on goal and successfully killed two penalties, and despite the penalties was able to control the pace of play for much of the period. The Buckeyes will look to get back on track when they return to Columbus for their first home series of the season against Minnesota beginning on Friday. The puck is set to drop in the first game at 6:07 p.m. and 2:07 p.m. the following day. read more

Stellar Attorneys Step Up To Defend Dawnta Harris

first_imgBy Sean Yoes, Baltimore AFRO Editor, syoes@afro.comDawnta Harris, 16, sits in the Baltimore County Detention Center awaiting trial as an adult for the killing of Baltimore County Police Officer First Class, Amy Caprio. On May 30, just nine days after Caprio’s death, a Baltimore County grand jury indicted Harris, Darrell Ward, 15, Derrick Matthews, 15 and Eugene Genius,17, for first-degree murder, burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary.Harris is being represented by two of the best defense attorneys in the state; J. Wyndal Gordon and Warren A. Brown.“This is not a kid that has a murderous spirit at all. This is a kid who panicked,” Brown told Fox 45 News. “…A lot is on the line,” he said.Sean Yoes (Courtesy Photo)Indeed, a lot is on the line, but it is a familiar position for both Brown and Gordon, who decided to take the Harris case pro bono.Brown, a veteran of over 5,000 criminal cases since being admitted to the Maryland Bar in 1980, has been a player in Maryland’s legal arena for decades. In the 1990’s Brown spent thousands of his own dollars annually around the Christmas holiday, buying back guns off the street at $50 a pop, no questions asked. In 2005, Brown represented Dontee Stokes, the man who shot defrocked priest Maurice Blackwell in 2002, in Stokes’ sexual abuse case against Blackwell (Stokes was an altar boy at Blackwell’s church when the abuse began). Brown got a conviction in the case, which garnered national headlines at the height of the Catholic priest sexual abuse scandals. Brown, who was named one of Maryland’s “super lawyers” five years in a row (2007-2011), has also experienced his share of adverse moments in the spotlight.In 2015, Brown’s son Matthew was arrested on charges of human trafficking connected to three underage, teenage girls allegedly forced into prostitution. The younger Brown was sentenced to two years last July. Just weeks earlier on July 1, Warren Brown’s stepson, Louis “Cody” Young, was gunned down at a West Baltimore gas station and Matthew Brown was allegedly the gunman’s target.Brown has spent much of his distinguished career, as well as instances in his private life, fighting to keep young Black men and boys from being devoured by the criminal justice system.Gordon has been licensed to practice law in the state of Maryland since 1995, the same year he graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law.In 2006, Gordon was appointed lead standby counsel for John Allen Muhammad, the so-called “Beltway Sniper,” thrusting the attorney on to the national stage. Gordon has maintained a national presence as a legal commentator on several cable news network shows such as, CNN, TruTV and Headline News and he has been a part of several high profile cases prior to teaming with Brown to defend Harris.Gordon represents Aaron Winston, who at 5’6”, 150 pounds, was allegedly brutalized and had his arm broken by 6’2”, 350 pound Baltimore police officer Alexandros Haziminas. Winston was acquitted of assault and other charges connected to his arrest that led to him allegedly being beaten up by the behemoth Baltimore cop. A lawsuit by Gordon on Winston’s behalf is pending.Gordon also represents the family of Korryn Gaines, the 23-year old mother of two who was shot to death by Baltimore County police on Aug. 1, 2016, who was awarded $37 million in damages Feb. 16 in a wrongful death lawsuit against the county.Now, Gordon and Brown have decided to defend Harris, this 16-year old boy at the center of a tragic series of events that took the life of a young woman and threatens to incarcerate him and three other boys for decades. Harris has been branded by virulent online trolls as every vile thing from  a “nigger” to the devil and everything in between. He is none of those things, he is a child that made a horrific mistake.In a commentary by E.R. Shipp, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist in residence at Morgan State University, Brown said, “In taking on the case pro bono, J. Wyndal and I are saying, `He matters. He’s not garbage. He’s clothed and covered with our credibility.’”A lot is on the line.Sean Yoes is the Baltimore editor of the AFRO.last_img

Dance of irrevocable passion

first_imgThis particular “Maharaas” is unique in the way it combines the traditional Raas of Brindaban with classical Kathak, a field in which Uma Sharma has done considerable research. The ballet is based on the 10th chapter of the Shreemad Bhagavat.  According to the text, it was on a full moon night that Lord Krishna decided to dance the Raas, with his ‘gopis’. He decorated himself with fragrant flowers and played his flute. On hearing the notes from his flute, the Gopis were enchanted, and left rushed to be with their loved Krishna. The lord reprimanded them for leaving their homes and husbands and rushing to him at the dead of night into forest. On hearing this, the gopis were disappointed and annoyed. Giving in to their pleasure Krishna surrounded by many gopis, started dancing. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThis show of affection and lavish attention by the supreme Lord himself soon made them proud. Krishna sensing this, decided to teach them a lesson as he along with Radha disappeared. When the gopis realised that ihs absence they went mad with the agony of separation. They started looking for him everywhere to diminish their sorrow, they started enacting scenes from Krishna’s life. Realising that the gopies had learnt a lesson, Krishna decided to reappear before them. To satisfy and pacify the gopies he started the Maharaas dance which is a spiritual experience. With his supreme powers he multiplied his form so that each gopi felt that Krishna was at her side and dancing with her alone.The Maharaas, conceived by Uma Sharma as a dance form is a unique blend which pinpoints her creative originality as a choreographer and also shows her concern for placing Kathak in it’s true perspective as a dance for the gods, to the gods, in the home of the gods – in the temples.last_img read more
