I was looking for a new challenge and when the opportunity came up with WWE, the timing just felt right. Even though I was in Japan the majority of my career, I was always captivated by the allure of WWE and their worldwide appeal. There is no bigger stage in sports entertainment, so it has always been in the back of my mind.”Kana on how working American independents will help with the transition to WWE:“Having already experienced American crowds I think will definitely help me with the transition.

first_imgTweets and texts have their place in a family’s communication network, but your grandkids are unlikely to come across them some day in the attic.That’s why a local author worries about how family stories will be shared decades from now.“I wonder about the future,” Diane Green-Hartley said. “People don’t keep journals any more. There’s no paper trail.”She was able to bring new life to her family’s role in American history through words that were set down on paper almost a century ago. Those journal entries and letters between family members resulted in her book, “Lillie’s Jasper: The 1930 Pilgrimage of a Gold Star Mother.”(Author John Graham just asked her for permission to use two of her images in an article he is writing for National Genealogical Society Magazine.)Now, with families getting together for the holidays, the topic of preserving and sharing their common heritage is timely. Gatherings are opportunities to remind siblings and cousins who has grandma’s old diary or the bundle of letters mom and dad wrote in 1944.And don’t forget oral histories.“I had an amazing story play out at a museum in Madras, Ore.,” she told The Columbian during an interview for an Nov. 24 story. The trigger was a World War II F4 Corsair fighter in the Erickson Aircraft Collection at the Madras airport.last_img read more

first_imgSEOUL, South Korea — In its latest effort to develop its ballistic and nuclear weapons, North Korea fired a medium-range missile Sunday that appeared to be similar to one the country tested earlier this year, U.S. and South Korean officials said.The rocket was fired from an area near the North Korean county of Pukchang, in South Phyongan Province, and flew eastward about 500 kilometers (310 miles), South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said. The U.S. Pacific Command said it tracked the missile before it fell into the sea.White House officials traveling in Saudi Arabia with President Donald Trump said the system that was tested had a shorter range than the missiles fired in North Korea’s most recent tests.The missile appeared to be similar in range and maximum altitude to the missile that North Korea test-fired in February, an official from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said. The missile launched on Sunday reached an altitude of 560 kilometers (347 miles), said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing office rules.The February test involved using a launch truck to fire a solid-fuel missile that North Korea calls the Pukguksong (Polaris)-2, a land-based version of a submarine-launched missile the country revealed earlier. That missile traveled about 500 kilometers before crashing into the sea, according to South Korean and U.S. officials.last_img read more

first_img“She told me the seasons were changing. The sun was shining but it was not hot. I could feel a sense of irritability in the air. Breezy, calm, breezy, no one noticed, and no one cared at least not this day. Perhaps when one thinks about yet another change to endure, the water down the drain, or maybe the days gone by they will fret. It will turn cold; it will rain or maybe snow. Residing indoors hovering near a warm cavern of sorts will be utmost. Watch through your window, it will come, the night will last. She told me the seasons were changing. I told her, yeah, I know.”A favorite piece I wrote some years ago while soaking in the autumn sunshine on a bench along the Columbia River walkway. A day perhaps like Wednesday. Fresh east winds, sunshine and warm temperatures but not feeling hot. This lady came by and sat down and made the comments that the seasons were changing. There was something peculiar about her, but the short conversation about the new season has stuck in my mind.Summer is busy, busy, busy. In fact, the other seasons winter and spring also seem busy. Maybe that is why fall is a favorite of most people. Everything tends to wind down and come to a slower pace. Outside on the sunny days and back inside cozy in front of the fire.Yep, the seasons are changing, but nature remains on the busy side. Plants, animals, insects and the like are rapidly preparing for a long winter slumber. Gathering their needs for the dormancy that falls upon us.We enjoy one more summerlike day today before we slide into a period of cooler and wetter weather on Friday. I don’t see an extended period of dry weather at this point, so we wait and see what the second and third weeks of October bring us.last_img read more

first_imgThe Vancouver Police Department was able to successfully reunite a woman with her mother’s missing family photo album Friday.According to a news release, the woman didn’t know the album was missing, but she contacted law enforcement about the family heirloom Friday at the urging of several family members who saw stories about it online.On Oct. 31, The Columbian and other news outlets reported that the police had discovered the album in a discarded suitcase and were trying to find its rightful owner. The album was discovered inside a suitcase found in some bushes near Roosevelt Elementary School on Falk Road in central Vancouver on Oct. 26.Several items were inside the suitcase, and among them was the album, which contained pictures likely shot between the 1940s and ’70s, along with several family names.Although its material value wasn’t much, police knew it would likely have a lot of sentimental value for its original owner. They weren’t able to match the album to any reported incidents, so they brought the story to the public.The woman didn’t respond to a request for comment before press time.last_img read more

first_imgPORTLAND — The Trump administration is angering environmental groups and residents of the Columbia River Gorge by rolling back a 2015 rule on oil train safety.Oregon Public Broadcasting reported Thursday that the Obama administration rule change required trains carrying highly explosive liquids to have electronically controlled pneumatic brakes installed by 2021.Those new systems were intended to help prevent fiery oil train wrecks like the one that happened in the Oregon town of Mosier in 2016.President Donald Trump’s administration says the rule change would cost three times the benefit it would produce.Chet Thompson, of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, says in a statement that the rollback a “rational decision.”Electronically controlled pneumatic brakes are supposed to be safer than air-controlled brakes because they are faster.last_img read more

first_imgWhen Shana Newton injured her hand and was benched for months, she still scheduled and managed the Portland Avalanche goalball team. That’s what team captains do, she said.Newton also pulled up goalball videos to watch on Youtube. At night, Newton said, she even dreamed goalball dreams.“It’s really become a lifestyle for me,” Newton, 21, said on Saturday afternoon while her Portland Avalanche teammates were working with out-of-town visitors, the Tacoma Typhoon, to build skills and scrimmage. Everybody was wearing masks across their eyes, she pointed out, because not all goalball players are completely blind — but you want everybody on the court to be playing at an equal level of sightlessness.Newton herself is a good example. She’s legally but not totally blind, she said. She’s extremely athletic and loves to compete. But when she used to try playing basketball or other sports with sighted friends, “it didn’t work out for me,” she said.Then she discovered goalball while a student at the Washington State School for the Blind in Vancouver. Goalball is a three-on-three court sport that was developed in the aftermath of World War II as a way to help rehabilitate blinded war veterans; it became a regular part of the summer International Paralympic Games in 1980 and is now considered the premier team game for blind athletes worldwide.The Vancouver-Portland area is a hotbed of goalball activity — and other recreations and outings for seeing-impaired people, whether they consider themselves athletes or just plain folks — largely thanks to the Northwest Association for Blind Athletes, a homegrown Vancouver nonprofit agency. The Association works with grants and donations to provide blind people with all sorts of physical fun — from guided hiking to tandem biking and swimming to sailing to judo — that they might not be able to access otherwise.last_img read more

first_imgThe Safeway grocery store on Mill Plain Boulevard might not be closing after all, according to a corporate spokeswoman. The company is currently negotiating with the store building’s owner to try to reach a new deal to allow the store to stay open.“We are currently working in good faith with the landlord, and are excited at a potential opportunity to extend our business at this location,” Safeway spokeswoman Jill McGinnis said in an emailed statement on Thursday.News of the ongoing negotiations is a change from last week, when it was announced that the store would close by Dec. 1. At the time, McGinnis said that the company had been unable to reach a lease renewal agreement and would be working to relocate the store’s employees to nearby locations.The potential closure of the store was first reported in May when John Beardsley, whose company Beardsley Building Management owns the building, said that the grocery chain had opted to not renew its lease. The store opened at the Mill Plain location in 1993, and Beardsley said he bought the building in 2015, taking over as the landlord in Safeway’s existing lease agreement.Beardsley said this week that Safeway had resumed negotiations after previously walking away when Beardsley did not accept the company’s request that its rent be lowered by a third. He said a store representative had argued that Beardsley had previously raised the rent substantially — an assertion which Beardsley denied. The last rent increase was in 2013, he said.last_img read more

‘300 Tonnes of Fertilizer Available’ Agric. Minister Fabureh

first_imgBy: Kebba AF TourayThe new Minister of Agriculture Amie Fabureh, has disclosed that a total of 300 tons of fertilizer, is currently available in the country, and that by end of June 2019, the remaining consignment of fertilizer will arrive.Minister Fabureh made this remark on Saturday during President Barrow’s rally in Brikama.“A total of ten tractors from NEMA and the Agriculture Value Chain, have been distributed among the cooperatives during our tour. This is to mechanize agriculture and help farmers work with ease to boost their production,” she told the gathering. She informed that two rice production projects are in the offing which once started, will address the problems of rice shortage in the country.“There is also a project for animal husbandry in the pipeline. This will help those in the domain to rear their animals within the country, without having to go to foreign countries,” she said.She continued that this is due to the fact that during feasts, a huge amount of money is spent on meat and sheep and other small ruminants. ‘‘My Ministry will stand firm to ensure that this project succeeds,” she said; that presently, they have the Department of Seed and FAO officials in Brikama Ba who are distributing seeds to farming communities and that farmers are receiving seeds from these officials. She assured that they will today Monday June 17th 2019, proceed to Farafenni.“So there is no delay in this rainy season and this year’s farming season will be a success. The outcry of farmers on fertilizer and the lack of it, will be history. Currently we have 50 tons of groundnuts at our depots across the country and whoever needs seeds, will be provided with it,” she said. “Agriculture will continue to progress because we have the farmers and we will do our utmost to empower them. We have small scale farmers but we try to ensure that they conduct the trade for themselves,” she concludes.It has been reported recently that farmers are eager to have fertilizer as they prepare for the upcoming farming season; that they raised the issue of affordability and accessibility of fertilizer even if when it is available, which they said Government should look into and support them to get it on time and at reasonable cost.last_img read more

Review Manchester United – Tottenham

first_imgEven though Tottenham was the one that took the lead through Dele Alli, goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera gave Manchester United a 2-1 victory and a place in the FA Cup final.All the players who were rested versus Bournemouth (Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Nemanja Matic, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia) were in the starting lineup for this FA Cup semi-final. The rest of the starters for Manchester United were David de Gea, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard. As for Tottenham, Dembele, Dier, Trippier, Alli and Davinson Sanchez didn’t feature in the draw at Brighton and were in the starting eleven today. They were joined by Kane, Son, Eriksen, Ben Davies and Vertonghen. Pochettino’s FA Cup goalkeeper Michel Vorm was on goal.The atmosphere at Wembley was terrific. The tempo at the beginning of the match was excellent. Tottenham had the early initiative and had two corners to show for it. Manchester responded with pressure and two corners of its own. In the 11th minute, Eriksen broke free on the right flank. Dele Alli followed his run and Eriksen found him with a great pass at the far post to give The Spurs a 1-0 lead. The game was open anyway. This just made it even more interesting. Tottenham was playing with great intensity, similar to its display in Juventus in the Champions League.Alexis Sanchez, Jose Mourinho, Manchester UnitedMourinho explains why Alexis Sanchez flopped at Man United Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes Alexis Sanchez failed miserably at Manchester United because he was a “sad man”, but hopes things will improve at Inter Milan.It took some time, but United eventually settled down after the goal. In the 24th minute, Dembele needlessly lost a ball in his third. Pogba was the one who took it away and sent a superb cross right onto the head of Alexis Sanchez, who guided the ball back across the other side of the net and the score was tied. A couple of minutes later, Valencia received the first yellow card of the game for a reckless two-footed challenge on Dele Alli. Not long after that, Son earned Tottenham’s first booking for a foul on Alexis Sanchez. In the 47th minute, Eric Dier decided to try his luck with a long-range shot. It deflected off Smalling and hit the post. We went to the locker room even at 1-1. The players barely took a breather in what was a gripping, absorbing first half.It was quiet a subdued second half, but Manchester United lit it up in the 62nd minute, when Ander Herrera flew in inside the box and fired a shot right in the middle of the goal. Vorm was caught on the wrong foot and it was 2-1 for The Red Devils. Lloris probably would’ve saved the shot. Pochettino had some problems to solve and the first attempt at a solution was sending Lucas Moura onto the pitch. Ben Davies was the player taken off. By going with a 3-man defense, Pochettino showed he wasn’t going to waste any time on tactics in the search for an equalizer.In the 75th minute, Vorm made a nice save on Pogba’s shot from the edge of Tottenham’s box. Later on, Wanyama came in for Moussa Dembele. Manchester had to withdraw its captain Antonio Valencia, who suffered from cramps. Mateo Darmian came in his stead. A few seconds later, Marcus Rashford replaced Jesse Lingard. Erik Lamela was Spurs’ last substitution. Tottenham failed to create a real chance until the end, as the match finished with a final score of 2-1. It was Hotspur’s 8th straight FA Cup semi-final defeat. Both Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba were wonderful today and that’s when Manchester United is at its best. Mourinho worked his magic once more, as The Red Devils booked their place in the final.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo takes just four minutes to score his first goal

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has started rolling out goals for the 2018 World Cup as he has given Portugal a 1-0 lead over Spain in tonight’s World Cup clash and stroked his chin.But he looked to have dived to win the penalty in the first place. Even up against David de Gea in goal for the Spanish, Ronaldo made no mistake as he fired home from the spot, but a look at the replays suggest it shouldn’t have been given.This is really the kind of start Fernando Hierro could have done without, with the former Real Madrid defender being named manager after the surprise sacking of Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the tournament.Checkout the goal moment: Ronaldo has converted a penalty to score inside the opening five minutes.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Cagliari is motivated by AC Milan

Playing against them has to be motivating and not a reason to be timid or nervous.”“[Joao Pedro] has been training regularly, so the only issue is match fitness. The Brazilian has qualities and characteristics that are different to everyone else in the squad and his return is certainly an extra weapon in our armory.
