‘Liverpool have evolved’ – Wijnaldum impressed with progress

first_imgLiverpool evolved over the course of the 2018-19 season, says Georginio Wijnaldum, who believes the Reds are now strong enough to win “really tough” games.Jurgen Klopp’s side finished the season by lifting the Champions League trophy after beating Tottenham 2-0.It was a much-needed piece of silverware to cap off an incredible campaign on Merseyside, with Liverpool having amassed 97 points to finish runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League.

And Wijnaldum, who scored twice after coming off the bench in the crucial Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona, is sure the club is moving in the right direction. “We have evolved a lot,” Wijnaldum told Liverpool’s official website. “You can see it not only with the results but also with the way we were playing. We grew during the season.”We started really well and we managed to win difficult games where in the past it was quite difficult and if we didn’t play really well we didn’t win the games that were really tough.”But this season we managed to win those games. We learned a lot. Everyone is a better player than they were before.”Liverpool had the best defensive record in the English top flight last year, with the likes of Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk putting in consistent performances at the back.Van Dijk was voted PFA Player of the Year for his imperious form, and Wijnaldum has been in awe of his fellow countryman. “What has impressed me the most with Virgil is that he’s consistent, he barely makes a mistake,” the midfielder continued.”He developed really well at Celtic and Southampton and Liverpool, he developed a lot.”What also impressed me is that other players play better when he plays; the defenders next to him defend better, the players in front of him play better because when you play and you know he’s behind you, you have a safe feeling.”Liverpool will reconvene for pre-season next month, with fixtures taking place against Tranmere Rovers and Bradford City on July 11 and July 14 respectively.The Reds then face further friendlies against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Sporting, Napoli and Lyon before competing in the Community Shield ahead of their Premier League opener at home to Norwich City on August 9.

Malala Yousafzai Accepts An Honorary Canadian Citizenship

first_imgIn her second attempt, activist Malala Yousafzai was successful in coming to Canada’s capital to accept an honorary citizenship.During her first attempt in October 2014, she was stopped at the airport due to an attack at Ottawa’s Parliament Hill. This time, however, went off without a hitch, while Malala’s 20-minute speech to Parliament received several standing ovations. The first ovation came in reference to the 2014 incident.“The man who attacked Parliament Hill called himself a Muslim, but he did not share my faith,” Malala said. “He did not share the faith of one and a half billion Muslims, living in peace around the world. He did not share our Islam, a religion of learning, compassion and mercy. I am a Muslim and I believe that if you pick up a gun in the name of Islam and kill an innocent person, you are not Muslim anymore.”In her speech she also spoke about world refugees, the violence many are fleeing and praised Canada’s efforts thus far yet holds out hope for more. “Your motto and your stand ‘Welcome to Canada’ is more than a headline or a hashtag,” she said. “It is the spirit of humanity that every single one of us would yearn for if our family was in crisis.”Malala said she was impressed with Canada’s first gender-balanced cabinet, but she also had a message for her new fellow citizens.“I would like to tell something to the children of Canada: You do not have to be as old as the very young Prime Minister Trudeau to be a leader,” she said. “I have learned that even a child’s voice can be heard across the world. To the young women of Canada I want to say, step forward, raise your voices, and the next time I visit, I hope to see more of you filling these seats. And to the men of Canada, be proud feminists, and help women get equal opportunities as men.”But her bigger ask was for the leaders in the room: to seize every opportunity to ensure that all girls in all countries receive an education. After reciting several statistics showing the economic benefits to countries that educate their boys and girls, Malala said: “Education is vital for the security of the world because extremism grows alongside inequality, in places where people feel they have no opportunity, no voice, no hope. “You can see Malala’s full speech here.Copyright ©2017Look to the Starslast_img read more

Ktaka students who missed NEET will get another chance Javadekar

first_imgNew Delhi: Karnataka students who missed the medical entrance examination NEET on Sunday due to a train delay will get another chance, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Monday.The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for these students will be conducted on May 20, he said. The decision was taken following a request by Karanataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy. “Happy to announce that Karnataka students who missed NEET exam due to railway delay will get another chance,” Javadekar tweeted.

In West Bengal’s Siliguri, where students at one exam centre couldn’t take the test because they didn’t get the question paper in the opted language Hindi, the reexamination will be held on the same day, the minister said. The NEET for admission to medical colleges was held across the country on Sunday. But hundreds of students from Karnataka missed the exam as their train reached Bengaluru an hour after the scheduled reporting time for the exam.

Better future for Somalia must remain collective priority Ban says at highlevel

Addressing a high-level meeting on Somalia, held on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly’s annual debate, Mr. Ban said the country has made “steady progress” in building a federal, democratic State. In particular, he highlighted the formation of a new interim regional administration, the launch of the constitutional review process, and the creation of a National Independent Electoral Commission. In addition, a National Consultative Forum was launched on 19 September to agree on the 2016 electoral process.“These are important steps, but the momentum must be sustained. Somalia cannot afford to get side-tracked by partisan politics or self-interest,” the Secretary-General cautioned.“I urge all parties to work together on the goals they have set, including to complete state formation, advance the constitutional review and ensure an inclusive electoral process in 2016. There can be no extensions of the constitutionally mandated terms of the executive and legislature.”Noting that the threat of Al-Shabaab continues to destabilize the country, Mr. Ban paid tribute to the African Union and bilateral partners, whose operations with Somali forces have expelled the militant group from key strongholds. At the same time, he stressed that the threat of Al-Shabaab cannot be defeated by military means alone. “I call on all Somalis, as well as Somalia’s friends, neighbours and partners, to reflect on the need for a more comprehensive approach to counter violent extremism in the country,” he said.“We need to understand the factors that drive people to join Al-Shabaab. We must help Somali authorities forge a viable alternative: notably by building a State that offers political inclusion, security, justice and economic opportunity to all – and that respects the human rights of all and empowers the country’s women.“We must help counter propaganda, and offer a path out of violence for those ready to leave Al-Shabaab. A strong regional approach and collaboration will be important in furthering this objective.” Mr. Ban also stated that the time has come to invest more support in the Somali police, to help provide security in areas recovered from Al-Shabaab. He asked all partners to deepen their efforts as part of the broader development of the criminal justice system. Greater attention also needs to be devoted to the country’s economic recovery, as well as to the dire humanitarian situation in which some 855,000 Somalis face acute food insecurity and over a million are internally displaced.President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud told the meeting that Somalis are about to begin consultations for an electoral process that will enable them to elect their own leaders for the first time in 47 years, since the last election in 1969.He highlighted key areas of focus, including ensuring security and economic recovery, which is critical to a better life for the Somali people, and the need to support the recently established regional governments, which will be the foundation of a full-fledged federal republic of Somalia.Also vital will be ensuring that the “fragile” humanitarian situation in Somalia does not also contribute to the country’s insecurity, he stated.“Three million Somalis are dependent on humanitarian assistance to meet their most basic daily needs. This is not acceptable anymore compared to the development and the progress in security and politics in Somalia,” said the President.He added that the Government is committed to a broad and inclusive process that makes certain that decisions are taken in a representative manner and that promotes the participation of women and minority groups. “There will be room for discussion but not disengagement. There will be room for perspectives but not for politicking. There will be room for negotiations but not for negativity. The Somali people deserve success not spoilers.“The seed for peace has taken root in Somalia and I have no doubt it will bloom into a tree whose branches shelter us all.” read more

Studentmade app aims to improve the lives of individuals with intellectual and

Tackling any task can often be made easier by focusing on one step at a time.Brock student researchers have used this logic to develop an app meant to improve quality of living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs).StepByStep Tasks was launched by Computer Science students Javon Luke and Tianyuan Zhang, under the guidance of Senior Lab Demonstrator and Co-ordinator Poling Bork. The app, through which Luke and Zhang have been working with staff and clients of Community Living Haldimand, is part of a study aimed at increasing the community participation and independence of people living with IDDs.The project is a collaborative effort that began with Bork consulting with Associate Professor Kimberly Maich in the Faculty of Education at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Bork then connected Luke and Zhang with PhD student Courtney Bishop and Associate Professor Tricia Vause, both in Brock’s Department of Child and Youth Studies, Assistant Professor Priscilla Burnham-Riosa, in the Department of Applied Disability Studies, and stakeholders from Community Living Haldimand.An under-represented community, individuals with IDDs account for one to two per cent of the population. Many people with IDDs not only struggle with a wide range of limitations, including difficulties with perceptual reasoning and verbal comprehension, but are also at a higher risk for social exclusion than their non-disabled peers.The StepByStep Tasks app provides a variety of prompting options on how to complete a task. Prompts provide visual and/or audio assistance to help users understand each step and can be modified to meet the individual needs of the user.These individuals often rely on assistance from support workers to complete everyday tasks and errands. By introducing the app, the team hopes to make significant contributions to improving the quality of life for many.Just as its name suggests, the StepByStep Tasks app instructs users on how to complete a task, one step at a time.Instructions can be presented through a variety of audio and visual prompts, with options ranging from instructional videos (most prompting) all the way to simple text instructions (least prompting). The amount of prompting, however, is completely up to the user and their specific needs.Customizability allows for users to modify the format in which they receive each instruction. For example, if someone was interested in learning how to do laundry, they could start off with a video accompanied by audio or text that explains how to complete each step from start to finish. As the user gains confidence in their abilities, they can begin fading out the amount of assistance they receive at each step. They can go from requiring a video or picture to completing that step independently.The hope is that users can eventually learn to complete the entire task with little to no prompting.Before introducing the app to users, the research team had to first teach Community Living support staff how it works. Through a behavioural skills training program, staff are taught how to properly use the app, set up tasks and fade their support using principles of applied behaviour analysis.They then work with the individual to identify skills to focus on and compile a list of tasks. Once the tasks and steps have been uploaded, staff provide a demonstration and explanation of the app to the individual. Staff participants then use most-to-least prompting to fade their own supports.“It’s working really well,” Bishop said when asked about the results the team has received. “When we first started, people were needing anywhere from 60 to 100 per cent support from their staff and we’re now seeing many of those drop down to zero.”Over the course of the year, the research team will grow the app’s user base by introducing more participants into the study. Currently, 12 people are actively using the technology. That number will nearly triple to a total of 35 by the end of the project’s second phase in April 2020.Unparalleled in its ability to fade levels of prompting, members of the developmental services field are growing increasingly interested in the app and how it can be implemented into their work. With such an opportunity to grow, StepByStep Tasks is now available for free in the Apple App Store.“None of this would be possible without the help we received from the Department of Computer Science and Poling Bork,” Luke said. “She came up with the idea for the app and played a vital role in this project by connecting Tianyuan and I with Courtney and Community Living Haldimand.”Bork also met regularly with the students and representatives from Community Living to ensure the initiative was on track.“It brings me great pride to see students from our Faculty making a difference in the community,” said Ejaz Ahmed, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Science. “I applaud their efforts and would like to thank Poling Bork for guiding them through this endeavour.”Bork specializes in serious games — video games that are designed for more than pure entertainment, with intended purposes such as intervention or education. She has guided more than 30 Computer Science undergraduate students in the development of innovative therapeutic video games.“She continues to be very active in getting our students involved as participants in real-world programming applications,” said Brian Ross, Chair of Brock’s Department of Computer Science. “Her doctoral expertise in education means she has many network connections with faculty and community partners who are in need of applications like StepByStep Tasks. Not only do the ends users benefit, but also our Computer Science students gain invaluable experience in app development.”Later this month, Luke and Zhang will further promote their work as they attend Connect 2019, Canada’s largest educational technology conference. The pair will provide demonstrations and discuss the process they took to develop the app with fellow conference delegates.“This was my first time developing an IOS app,” Zhang said. “I learned a lot from my role in this project and am very excited to speak to people about our experiences.” read more

Upcoming horror movie The Woods was actually a Blair Witch Project sequel

first_imgThis happened during our screening in the lobby. pic.twitter.com/XJO45I2bAL— Simon Barrett (@Simon_Barrett) July 23, 2016Then, the movie unleashed the first trailer for the newly titled Blair Witch, revealing it starred James Allen McCune (Shameless) as the brother of the Heather Donahue character from the first film (the actors in the first film used their own names as character names). Heather’s body was never found, so he sets off into the woods where she disappeared to find out the truth about what happened to her.Early buzz about Blair Witch indicates that it doesn’t reference the ill-reviewed sequel, Blair Witch Project 2: Book of Shadows, but is more of a direct continuation of the first film in a way that could recontextualize the ending. If that sounds vague, it’s because it is vague, but it indicates the mythology of the original movie is still relevant to whatever is going to happen this year.Good thing the old Blair Witch Project mythology site is still up! It’s official. The Woods booth is now The Blair Witch booth at #SDCC. #SDCC2016 pic.twitter.com/YgmjA3m2Hw— Johnny Zaccari (@JohnnyZaccari) July 23, 2016There was a screening of The Woods on Friday in San Diego and as the movie unspooled for fans and critics, the advertising all changed. The Woods ads around San Diego were replaced with Blair Witch ads, the Lionsgate booth on the convention floor changed to a Blair Witch booth, the Twitter account abandoned The Woods for @BlairWitchMovie while the screening was in progress. Surprise! There’s a new sequel to the 1999 found footage horror movie The Blair Witch Project coming out this September. Lionsgate, who is distributing the movie and has the Blair Witch rights after purchasing Artisan, managed to keep this a secret until the movie premiered at San Diego Comic-Con late Friday night. In a world where we have drones taking set photos from Star Wars movies a full year before they are due to be released, it’s quite an accomplishment that the filmmakers managed to keep Blair Witch a secret.Up until the film was finished, the movie that is now called Blair Witch was in production in Vancouver last year under the title “The Woods.” In May of this year, Lionsgate even released a trailer for The Woods without revealing the subject matter of the movie.As far as anyone knew, The Woods was just the next movie from director by Adam Wingard and writer by Simon Barrett, who had previously collaborated on other films You’re Next and The Guest. What the production managed to keep secret was that they were rebooting the Blair Witch Project franchise.“The Woods was our working title,” Wingard told Entertainment Weekly. “When we signed on to it, we knew that it was eventually going to be changed. To us, it wasn’t even going to be part of the marketing. But I think Lionsgate made a really smart decision, using that.”last_img read more

Gilberto tells Emery Ozil must play for Arsenal

first_imgGilberto Silva has advised Arsenal boss Unai Emery that a player of Mesut Ozil’s calibre cannot be left benched and added that Arsene Wenger should have left in 2017.The German playmaker appears to be struggling to gain favour with Emery at Arsenal this season with just 13 starts in the club’s 25 Premier League matches.In fact, Ozil has only featured twice for the Gunners in 2019 due to both fitness struggles and Emery’s decision to omit from matchday squads.The Spaniard has recently stated that Ozil does still have an Arsenal future, despite growing concerns that his time at the Emirates Stadium is coming to an end.But Gilberto believes there is a simple solution to the Ozil problem.“He has to be on the field,” Gilberto told talkSPORT.“A player of his calibre cannot be on the bench, in my opinion.“People are always trying to find something to talk about Ozil – why is he not playing and, when he is playing, why is he not playing well?“This kind of player, you have to give them responsibilities. What’s the best way to give him responsibility? Put him on the field!“Right now it’s down to the manager. It’s a good challenge for Unai.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“What’s the best setup for the team? Why not find a way for the team to play and find a place for him, where he can be important for the team?“I think for Arsenal fans it’s difficult to see him on the bench.”Gilberto played at Arsenal between 2002 to 2008 and made 244 appearances in the midfield under Arsene Wenger.The Brazilian also formed part of Wenger’s famous “Invincibles” squad that went the entire 2003/04 Premier League unbeaten on route to the title.After 22 years in charge of the Gunners, Wenger stepped down at the Emirates Stadium last summer following two successive seasons of failing to finish in the top-four.But Gilberto believes his old boss should have left in 2017 on the back of Arsenal’s 2-1 FA Cup final win over Chelsea, which secured the Frenchman his seventh title in the competition.Gilberto added: “When Arsenal won the FA Cup against Chelsea that was a good moment for Arsene (to leave) in my mind.“But, of course, I know Arsene very well, he is a football man. He loves the game, and he loves Arsenal.“You have to respect someone like that and let him leave on his own terms.“At the time when he won the FA Cup it was also difficult to find someone to replace him.”LONDON, ENGLAND – MAY 27: Arsene Wenger, Manager of Arsenal lifts The FA Cup after The Emirates FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on May 27, 2017 in London, England.

The 85 mile fire destroys a home spreads to State Forest land

first_imgRobbins says USFS firefighters will continue to focus on protecting residences when they arrive in Haines. “We don’t usually pick up many fires in Southeast obviously because it’s a rainforest,” he said. About 150 miles up the highway from the blaze in Haines, CBC reports a nearly 500 hectare fire burning near Haines Junction in the Yukon. Eight Forest Service firefighters took over suppression efforts of the 8.5 Mile Fire mid-day Tuesday. (Tongass National Forest photo) A fire started at 8.5 mile on the Haines Highway at about six o’clock on Monday evening. The fire consumed one residence and fire fighters are working to protect four others. There are no reported injuries. At last report the five-acre fire moved on to state lands burning uphill and north. “We have a twenty person forest service crew mobilizing which should be on scene by the end of the day,” said Paul Robbins Jr., the Public Affairs staff officer for the Tongass National Forest. There is a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Forest Service and Alaska State Forests when it comes to fighting fires. So U.S. Forest Service will relieve the Haines Volunteer Fire department this evening. A five-acre fire destroyed one home in Haines and spread to State Forest land Monday night. The National Forest Service is flying in Tuesday evening to aid the local volunteer fire department. Alaska transitioned into fire season this month, but Alaska Division of Forestry’s Tim Mowry says fires in the Southeast region are rare. There’s an increased risk of fires in Alaska this year especially along main road corridors. Mowry attributes this year’s increased risk to an early spring and abnormally dry or drought conditions in the panhandle. Haines Borough dispatch got the call just before six thirty on Monday and Haines Borough Volunteer Fire Department has been fighting the fire since that evening. Private company Coastal Helicopters is delivering water by bucket to the firefighters. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. The fire department does not yet have a representative available for comment. “Thirty-three thousand acres is really nothing in Alaska because we’re so big. Typically we’re gonna see 650-700,000 acres in a typical year,” Mowry said. Statewide this year there have been 135 reported wildfires that burned over 33,000 acres. Only six of those were in southeast. “Some of the crew is coming from the Tongass, some are coming from the Chugach, so they’re coming in from all over Alaska,” he said.last_img read more

6 Han Solo Comics You Should Be Reading

first_imgStay on target Mattel Unveils Fashionable ‘Star Wars’ x Barbie Dolls‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Finale Sets Up ‘The Rise of Sk… Han Solo is a man who seems to have lived many different lives among the galaxy. In the Star Wars universe, there’s a couple of ways writers, artists, developers, creators and more have explored this smuggler from Corellia. Books, video games, spin-off films and, for our purposes here, comics books have played a big part in expanding the universe and bringing us new stories and characters to love. Before Solo comes out, we’ve compiled a list of Han Solo comics that you should be reading before he makes his young big screen debut.HAN SOLO(W): Marjorie Liu (P): Mark Brooks (I): Mark Brooks & Dexter Vines (C) Sonia Oback with Matt Milla (L): Joe Caramagnavia MarvelIf you’re going to pick a comic that’s solely Han Solo on a wild adventure, you need to read Han Solo for yourself. Han Solo focuses on Solo reluctantly accepting a top-secret mission from Leia that involves him picking up informants for the Rebellion. This comes at a very steep cost because to complete his task he’ll have to take place in the Dragon Void – an intergalactic space race. In the mists of all this, there’s a traitor to the Rebellion aboard the Falcon, just what Han needs. Will Han be able to complete his dream of winning the ultimate title in the Dragon Void? Will he be able to complete the mission for Leia without letting his ego get in the way?Marjorie Liu spins a narrative that’s entirely out of this atmosphere. She pits Han between whats right and wrong and his ever-growing ego and reputation. Liu knows how to weave an excellent narrative as well as nail Han’s characterization from screen to comics. Brooks’ pencils are to die for, creating a visually stunning work of art. This is only matched by his inks with Dexter Vines by his side. In that, we have stellar colors from Sonia Oback with Matt Milla and letters by Joe Caramagna. Han Solo is the perfect stand-alone that leaves you completely enthralled and entertained from start to finish.STAR WARS ADVENTURES – HAN SOLO AND THE HOLLOW MOON OF KHORYA(W): Jeremy Barlow (A): Rick Lacy (I): Matthew Loux (C): Michael Atiyeh (L): Michael Heislervia Dark HorseAfter another disastrous and dangerous mission, Han and Chewbacca race away to live another day. Chewie is understandably upset with Han, telling him that he’s way too reckless. Han suggests they take a little bit of time away from each other. This comes sooner than later. Han is recruited (captured) to carry out a mission to retrieve a droid with his old partner Billal. Han and Chewbacca quickly learn that they need each other to keep in other in line, balance each other out and for their own sanity’s.This all-ages adventure is something that everyone will enjoy and tests the friendship of the most loved besties in the universe. Jeremy Barlow writes Han Solo and the Hollow Moon of Khorya with such heart that it’s impossible not to give it such praise. It’s short but provides a space venture worth taking. Rick Lacy gives a cartoonish, wacky style with his art, especially in the many facial expression the character uses and with Matthew Loux on inks, he brings this out tenfold. The colors of Michael Atiyeh are bright and fresh yet gives you a feeling of a fun-filled adventure that you’ll be able to sink into.STAR WARS: SHATTERED EMPIRE (W): Greg Rucka (A): Marco Checchetto, Angel Unzueta, Emilio Laiso (C): Andres Mossa (L): Joe Caramagnavia MarvelPalpatine’s reign should have come to an end, but just like tyrants, you can never keep one down and out for long. In Shattered Empire, Emperor Palpatine’s reign never truly comes even after death. The planet must find a way to build itself back up in the mists after the Battle of Endor. Just like a snake, Palpatine finds his way to slither himself into playing a dominant force in another catastrophic event as he commands Operation Cinder start at once.Han doesn’t play a massive role in Shattered Empire, but he does make his presence known. We mostly see Shattered Empire through the lives of Shara Bey, Poe Dameron’s mum! Yes, you also get Poe’s handsome father Kes Dameron as well. Shattered Empire is set after Return of the Jedi. Greg Rucka does an outstanding job in weaving the original trio in with new characters. If you look closely, Shara and Kes almost mirror Han and Leia in some ways. This might be me reading way too into it, but I also find it kind of cute. If you’re interested in the inner workings of Operation: Cinder, look into playing Battlefront II (if you want to, just saying).STAR WARS: VADER DOWN (W): Jason Aaron & Kieron Gillian (A): Mike Deodato, Salvador Larroca (C): Frank Martin Jr., Edgar Delgado (L): Joe Caramagna, Chris Eliopoulosvia MarvelThe Vader series written by Kieron Gillian and the Star Wars series written by Jason Aaron are two of the well-made and definitive Star Wars books you’ll come across. Both of these writers come together in perfect harmony for a trade that’s utterly impossible to describe how insanely ingenious it is. When Darth Vader crash-lands on Vrogas Vas, he’s immediately surrounded by the Rebellion. To get out of there alive, he has to fight his way out. He doesn’t care if he has to do it through one rebel at a time.The exciting thing about Vader Down is how much they pack into one giant trade! It honestly blows your mind how action-packed it gets, and the story keeps picking up, never slowing down for you whatsoever. Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa shine in this volume as they (especially Leia) face off against Vader. You also have fantastic new characters from the Vader series laced in such as Aphra, Triple-Zero, and BT-1. We’re met with some cool fights like Chewbacca vs. Black Krrsantan, which you need to get behind. This series will be something of a classic because of the epic storytelling behind two greats and the art behind some of the best the stars have to offer.STAR WARS – HAN SOLO: AT STARS’ END(W): Archie Goodwin (A): Alfredo Alcala (C): Penny McNamee via MarvelLooking for some classic Han Solo adventures? There’s no classic comic better than Han Solo: At Stars’ End. This classic is an adaptation of Brian Daley’s novel of the same name. The Millennium Falcon is in desperate need of repairs, and Han can’t make the repairs on his own. Han and Chewie land in the Corporate Sector – a neutral playground between the corporation and the Empire. They meet up with Jessa, and she immediately makes a deal with Han. If he helps her find her father Doc, then they’ll make repairs to the ship and give him the Waiver that he needs. Han, reluctantly, takes this offer and all things go downhill from there. Chewie is taken to Stars’ End, a prison they were hoping to free others from but now Chewie’s held hostage!This is one of the best classic Star Wars stories I’ve read in such a long time. It feels timeless and very much captures the relationship that Chewbacca and Han have with each other and the lengths he’ll go through to get back his friend. Goodwin shines adapting the novel into slick comics that you can treasure. He doesn’t skip on how slick Solo can be, but also not afraid to turn up the flirty resourcefulness of our leading man as well.STAR WARS – SKYWALKER STRIKES VOL. 1(W): Jason Aaron (A): John Cassaday (C): Laura Martin (L): Chris Eliopoulos via MarvelOne of THE best Star Wars comics out now the Star Wars comics from 2015 til now. They’re incredibly detailed, exploring the world and characters of Star Wars as we’ve never seen before. In this series, Luke, Leia, Han and the rest of the gang come out of the massive triumph of blowing up the Death Star. However, things aren’t always as they seem. The Emperor and his apprentice Darth Vader are still out there making massive plans for the universe. The gang plans to attack the Empire when everything goes wrong, leading all of them to scramble and find a way out.Coming out of A New Hope and into Empire Strikes Back, this is the perfect companion piece to the movies. Again, not only does this explore worlds and characters, but it brings in new characters that we’ve never seen before. Jason Aaron and his creative team utterly slay this series with everything they have. It always weaves it’s way to other tie-in’s but always comes back to the source. We see more from insanely dope characters like Boba Fett and Obi-Wan. We also recieve characters like the beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, fine as hell Sana Solo, Han Solo’s wife! This is one comic series that you should definitely check out, especially if you’re a loyal fan of the original trilogy and want more.In addition to these Han Solo comics, here’s a list of other titles that you should be reading.LANDO – (W): Charles Soule (A): Alex Maleev (CA): Paul Mounts (L): Joe CaramagnaSTAR WARS INFINITIES: A NEW HOPE – (W): Chris Warner (A): Drew JohnsonCHEWBACCA – (W): Gerry Duggan (A): Phil NotoSTAR WARS ADVENTURES #10 – (W): Cavan Scott, Elsa Charretier, Pierrick Colinet (A): Derek Charm, Elsa Charretier (C): Sarah Stern (L): Tom B.

The Arizona Cardinals may not have a coach but ap

first_imgThe Arizona Cardinals may not have a coach, but apparently that won’t stop them from interviewing potential assistants. According to CBS NFL insider Jason La Canfora, the team has checked in with former Eagles defensive coordinator and offensive line coach Juan Castillo.

Would imagine its for the OL spot vacated by Russ Grimm— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 9, 2013 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories center_img Interesting.Castillo was the Eagles’ offensive line coach from 1998-2010, when he was moved into the defensive coordinator position. He was fired from that post in October 2012, though. La Canfora notes the Cardinals’ interest would likely be for his work with offensive linemen, as that is an area the team has struggled with for the better part of forever. However, that they would be looking to add to the coaching staff without having a coach on board yet would seem like a questionable move. 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more
