The 11 Power 5 College Football Teams That Improved The Most Statistically In 2015

first_imgiowa midseason hype videoTwitter/@hawkeyeFBvideoVirtually every college football team makes changes from season to season. Players graduate, enroll, and transfer out and in, coaches take new jobs and rise through the ranks, and systems change all the time. In college football, you can have a team like TCU, which was a 4-8 club in 2013, find itself on the precipice of the College Football Playoff in 2014. While not every rise or fall is that drastic, the sport does lend itself to steep turnarounds. This year, Larry Fedora, Kirk Ferentz, and Bob Stoops all answered questions about their job statuses with remarkable runs, and all are positioned to go to top bowls, if not compete for national championship.These improvements bare themselves out on the stat sheets as well. When comparing the numbers from 2014 to 2015, it isn’t very shocking which teams have seen the biggest jumps this season.Using scoring offense and defense, we measured which power conference teams improved the most in total point differential from 2014 to 2015. Many of the top ten teams are among those that helped define the 2015 college football season. Next: Florida State >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12last_img read more

Colorado communities launch lawsuit claiming Suncor climate change damages

first_imgIn a joint news release, the three claim that the communities will have to spend at least US$100 million over the next three decades to deal with climate change caused by the use of Suncor and Exxon products.They say that Suncor, which has its U.S. headquarters in Denver, Colo., and supplies about 35 per cent of the state’s gasoline and diesel fuel demand, directly emitted one million tonnes of greenhouse gases in Colorado in 2016.They also say that Suncor and Exxon have known about the costs of fossil fuel use for more than 50 years but still promote and sell their products while “recklessly deceiving” the public and policymakers.The Colorado action comes as several U.S. municipal governments including San Francisco and New York pursue lawsuits against big oil companies for allegedly contributing to global warming. CALGARY, A.B. — Three Colorado communities have filed a lawsuit demanding that Calgary-based Suncor Energy Inc. and U.S. giant Exxon Mobil Corp. “pay their fair share” of costs associated with climate change.In a U.S. court filing, the communities of Boulder County, San Miguel County and the City of Boulder claim the two oil companies have significant responsibility for climate change that is damaging local roads and bridges, parks and forests, buildings, farming and agriculture, the ski industry and public open space.A Suncor spokeswoman said the company hadn’t yet received the lawsuit and therefore had no comment. None of the claims have been proven in court.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: “I am a person in my own right”, retorted senior advocate Indira Jaising while taking strong exception to Attorney General K K Venugopal’s comment in the Supreme Court on Thursday that she be referred to as the wife of senior counsel Anand Grover.The incident occurred before a bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra and Navin Sinha when Grover told the court that he was appearing for Jaising, who has filed an application seeking to intervene in the contempt petition filed by the Attorney General against activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan.

At this juncture, Venugopal who was present in the court, said: “He (Grover) should say (he is appearing) for his wife.” To this, Jaising took umbrage at the comment and said, “Mr Attorney General you should withdraw his remark. I am a person in my own right”. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedMinutes later however, she said: “I am sorry that I lost my temper Mr Attorney. We identify as individual lawyers. We are not to be identified as somebody’s spouse or somebody’s wife or husband. We are maintaining our individuality. Hence, we chose not to change our names.” Jaising told the bench that she has filed an application to intervene in the matter as the court was dealing with the issue of whether lawyers and litigants can criticise the court proceedings in a sub-judice matter to influence public opinion. “I also write frequently. I am concerned and I must know the limit of law,” she said, adding, “It is my own choice as to who should represent me. Kindly allow Mr Grover to appear for me”. To this, the bench said, “Do not worry, we will hear everybody when we will hear the issue”. During the hearing, Bhushan admitted before the court that he had made a “genuine mistake” by tweeting that the government had perhaps submitted in the apex court fabricated documents of the high-powered selection panel on appointment of interim CBI chief.last_img read more

Trump orders withdrawal of sanctions against N Korea

first_imgWashington DC: Donald Trump has abruptly ordered the withdrawal of additional “large-scale” sanctions on North Korea, immediately after the Treasury Department imposed them, with his press secretary saying that the US President “likes” North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and does not think they are necessary. President Trump’s unusual move comes after his second summit with Kim, held last month in Hanoi, Vietnam. Trump walked out of that summit after refusing to agree to the North Korea’s demands of lifting all sanctions. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”It was announced today by the US Treasury that additional large- scale sanctions would be added to those already existing sanctions on North Korea. I have today ordered the withdrawal of those additional sanctions!” Trump tweeted on Friday. This was an apparent reference to sanctions the Treasury Department has announced Thursday on Chinese shipping companies doing business with North Korea. Those sanctions prompted swift pushback from the Chinese and North Korean governments. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe two companies are Dalian Haibo International Freight Co. Ltd and Liaoning Danxing International Forwarding Co. Ltd. The sanctions were the first new sign of pressure since talks between Trump and Kim broke down in Hanoi. “The US and our like-minded partners remain committed to achieving the final, fully verified denuclearisation of North Korea and believe that the full implementation of North Korea-related UN Security Council resolutions is crucial to a successful outcome,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “Treasury will continue to enforce our sanctions, and we are making it explicitly clear that shipping companies employing deceptive tactics to mask illicit trade with North Korea expose themselves to great risk,” it said. The National Security Advisor John Bolton described it as an “important” action. “The maritime industry must do more to stop North Korea’s illicit shipping practices. Everyone should take notice and review their own activities to ensure they are not involved in North Korea’s sanctions evasion,” Bolton tweeted. The White House, however, defended Trump’s decision. “President Trump likes Chairman Kim and he doesn’t think these sanctions will be necessary,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. In June, Trump and Kim had their first-ever historic meeting aimed at normalising ties and complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.last_img read more
