first_imgNational Championship in Tampa Bay for 2017.Who will win enough games to compete for this?The NFL Draft is dominating today’s news cycle but it’s always a good time to make some College Football Playoff predictions. About five months away from the 2016 season, some of ESPN’s College GameDay crew has done just that. ESPN play-by-play announcer Chris Fowler tweeted out the teams himself, Jesse Palmer, Desmond Howard, Joey Galloway and Kaylee Hartung are picking to make the College Football Playoff. Clemson was the only unanimous selection between the five college football personalities, while seven other teams – Oklahoma, Baylor, Alabama, LSU, Stanford, Tennessee and Houston – were picked by at least one of them. fired up panel @JessePalmerABC @DesmondHoward @Joey_Galloway @KayleeHartung making bold CFB predictions at our sponsor summit tonight! 1/2— Chris Fowler (@cbfowler) April 28, 20162/2 our panel’s consensus CFB playoff pick: @ClemsonFB w/ OU, BAY, ALA, LSU, TENN, STAN, HOU also mentioned by at least one of them.— Chris Fowler (@cbfowler) April 28, 2016Some pretty popular choices, but it’s surprising to see no Big Ten teams on their list.

Homelessness declining in Calgary

first_imgNine and a half years in, the 10 year plan is proving effective.Calgary’s plan to end homelessness began January 1, 2008, and as of May 31, 2017, the School of Public Policy reports the number of people affected by the issue, appears to have dropped.“It’s a good news story, in that, the 10 year plan to end homelessness has shown success,” study author Ron Kneebone told 660NEWS. “The maximum number of beds that shelters have to provide to people in Calgary, has fallen quite dramatically, and I think we’re eventually approaching where we want to be,” he said. And, that is, a low number of people dealing with homelessness, and affordable accommodations for people with limited incomes.“When we try to identify, you know, are we doing a good job of addressing homelessness, you have to pay attention to the fact that the city is growing really quickly,” Kneebone noted. “Over the last 10 years, it’s grown by over 26 per cent.” That’s a population increase, coupled with a 40 per cent decline in the number of stays at Calgary emergency shelters.“What we’re showing here is that despite the fact that we still have very high rents in Calgary, we’ve made real progress,” Kneebone declared, “the progress would be even greater and faster if we could do something about the cost of housing.”Calgary is the most expensive city in Canada for people with limited incomes.last_img read more

Aston Villa beat West Brom

first_imgLondon: Aston Villa progressed to within one game of a return to the Premier League after edging West Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion 4-3 on penalties in the Championship playoff semi-finals. West Brom won 1-0 on the night at the Hawthorns to level the tie at 2-2 on aggregate thanks to Craig Dawson’s first-half header. However, the Baggies’ hopes of an immediate return to the top-flight were dented when captain Chris Brunt was sent off 10 minutes from the end of normal time. The hosts held out manfully during extra-time, but Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer saved West Brom’s first two penalties of the shootout from Mason Holgate and Ahmed Hegazi. “There’s obviously a lot of luck involved but wow,” Steer told Sky Sports. “We practise penalties, so I think I must’ve faced a 100 a day the last few days.” Conor Hourihane, Mile Jedinak, Jack Grealish and Tammy Abraham kept their cool from the spot as Villa set up a May 27 Wembley meeting with Leeds or Derby for a lucrative place in the Premier League. Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds hold a 1-0 first-leg lead over Frank Lampard’s Rams ahead of the second leg at Elland Road on Wednesday. Villa missed out in the playoff final last year, losing 1-0 to Fulham and Grealish, who has been linked with a summer move to Tottenham, is keen to make amends in what could be his final game for the club. “The crowd made it tough with the atmosphere but in the end I felt we ran out worthy winners,” said the midfielder. “It’s no good getting to Wembley and falling at the final hurdle again, so fingers crossed. All of us are very hungry.”last_img read more

December Employment Down 03 Percent Oil And Gas Stabilizing

first_imgWiebold attributed some of the job growth from the recent uptick in the oil and gas industry: “Oil and gas employment over the summer and fall has basically stabilized. They lost a lot of jobs pretty dramatically in late 2015, and 2016, so really employment for oil and gas has stabilized in the past few months.”  Alaska’s seasonally adjusted December unemployment rate remained at 6.3 percent, and the comparable national rate increased from 3.7 to 3.9 percent. She says while the state anticipates more jobs within the upcoming year there are some factors that could potentially impact that growth. Karinne Wiebold, Economist: “We do believe that the job losses have begun to taper. While we are still continuing to lose jobs, and I believe we are in our 38th or 39th month of job losses, those losses are kind of starting to diminish. We anticipate that there is going to be growth in the next year.” center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享December 2018 employment was down an estimated 0.3 percent, or 900 jobs, from December 2017, according to the latest numbers released from the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Wiebold: “The government shutdown, if it goes long enough it could start to affect employment in Alaska. If the state government decides to have a hiring freeze, or significant cuts that could also impact the job numbers. Lastly, some of the growth that we anticipate is revolving around some potential projects on the North Slope. In the event that several of those decided to pull out we would not see the growth that we are anticipating.”last_img read more
