Colin Cowherd Made A Bold Claim About Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins

first_imgColin Cowherd and Joel Klatt talk Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State vs. Penn State.FOX Sports 1Dwayne Haskins has been spectacular so far this season for Ohio State football. The quarterback has led the Buckeyes to a 4-0 start, and has brought a new dimension to the offense.Through the four games, Haskins is 87-for-115 for 1,194 yards, 16 touchdowns, and one interception. He’s thrown for 300 yards in three of four games, and five touchdowns in two separate games.The quarterback whose job he inherited, J.T. Barrett, was a great four-year starter for the Buckeyes. Urban Meyer has had numerous other great quarterbacks as well, including Braxton Miller at Ohio State, Tim Tebow at Florida, and Alex Smith at Utah.It is early in his tenure, but Colin Cowherd thinks Dwayne Haskins may be the best quarterback Urban Meyer has ever had.He is focused on NFL potential, but considering Alex Smith’s lengthy career, which seems to be improving over the last few seasons.Cowherd spoke to Joel Klatt about Ohio State at Penn State, and Haskins specifically:”This is the best QB talent Urban Meyer has ever had, including Alex Smith… this kid’s an NFL QB.”@ColinCowherd on Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins pic.twitter.com/iejcuZjKnP— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) September 26, 2018From the clip:“Klatt: You gotta deal with Dwayne Haskins. This Ohio State offense is one of the best Ohio State offenses I’ve seen in a long time.”Cowherd: This is the best quarterback talent Urban Meyer’s ever had, including Alex Smith. This kid’s the best talent he’s ever had. J.T. Barrett, I loved. Chris Leak at Florida. These are good guys, college guys. This kid’s an NFL quarterback. He’ll play on Sundays.Klatt: Pure quarterback acumen, he’s the best Meyer’s ever had, and that includes Tebow. And I think Tebow was a great competitor, and a great college football player, but this kid has immense talent.Cowherd: This kid’s good enough to face Saban and beat him. He’s an NFL thrower. You can’t be a system pocket guy. This kid could beat Nick Saban.”First, he has to beat Trace McSorley and Penn State. If Haskins pulls that off, Ohio State is one big step towards another College Football Playoff appearance, and a possible rematch with Nick Saban and Alabama.last_img read more

New Surveillance System for the Global Maritime …

first_imgApril 21, 2014 zoom Liquid Robotics and Ultra Electronics USSI have announced the joint development of a revolutionary and cost effective surveillance system for the global maritime security market.This new product leverages the Liquid Robotics Wave Glider, the world’s first wave powered ocean robot, with Ultra Electronics USSI’s state of the art acoustic sensing and signal processing to provide a persistent, best-of-breed, surveillance capability. This solution helps address the critical need for affordable, long duration, maritime surveillance of the world’s Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), Exclusion Economic Zones (EEZs), ports and coastlines.“Countries around the globe are losing valuable natural resources and economic opportunity without the ability to persistently patrol their coastlines, MPAs and EEZs,” said Bill Vass, CEO of Liquid Robotics. “This strategic partnership will bring to market a powerful solution with the ability to help close this gap globally.”The Sentinel Passive Acoustic Sensor, designed and manufactured by Ultra Electronics USSI, will be scalable and configurable to meet the end user’s operational requirements covering a broad range of mission applications. The sensor/software suite is designed to acoustically detect, track and form contact reports on waterborne targets that are transmitted to a command and control node on shore, ship or aircraft platform.Contact reports will contain spatial information that allows for data fusion with other sensor sources to achieve an affordable common operational picture that will provide the user maximum situational awareness.Applications for this product are vast and include area surveillance, perimeter trip wire notification, marine mammal monitoring and data collection, environmental data collection and defense and military mission capability sets.Liquid Robotics’ Wave Gliders will host the Sentinel Passive Acoustic Sensors in conjunction with additional weather, optical, communications and computing resources to provide real time maritime domain awareness. Able to operate 24×7, through all weather conditions, the Wave Glider reduces the risk and costs to long duration maritime security.Both Liquid Robotics and Ultra Electronics USSI’s combined engineering excellence have resulted in an integrated system that brings a disruptive persistent platform surveillance capability to a host of water surface security applications.last_img read more

NHS care workers did not aid patient in crisis as staff about

first_imgHer daughter, Kim Vella, 57, told the inquest that at 4.10pm on the day of her mother’s death she received a telephone call from her in a “manic state”.She said she then called the older persons mental health care team, saying she was “extremely concerned”, and was put through to her mother’s carer, Emma Bulbrooke.She said: “She was of the opinion that they were due to go out of hours and that it was best for me to make my way to the house and do the best I could.”If I didn’t like what I saw I was to call 999 but I wasn’t told what to ask for. They were closing at 5 o’clock.”Mrs Vella said she then went to her parents’ house, where she found her mother in an “uncontrollable state”, accusing her and her father of “ganging up on her” and attempting to get her sectioned.She said she did receive a call while at the house from Ms Bulbrooke but this had been passed to her father.She said her mother attempted to hit her and, with her father, restrained her on the floor but she managed to escape when she went to get a phone to call 999.Mrs Vella said she had been “shocked” by the response from the care provided to her mother in the weeks and months leading up to her death as she felt her case was not “prioritised” despite her deterioration.Describing her mother before her illness, Mrs Vella said: “She was one of life’s beautiful people.”Pathologist Dr Adnan Al-Badri told the inquest that toxicology tests carried out after Mrs Munns’ death showed no trace of the anti-psychotic drug risperidone which she had been prescribed suggesting that she had not taken it for up to five days previously.The inquest is expected to last for four days. A care worker from the controversial Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust told the daughter of a 74-year-old woman just hours before she fell to her death from a motorway bridge that they could not respond to a “crisis call” because the office was about to close for the day, an inquest has heard.Marion Munns, a retired nurse, had previously been admitted to the Western Community Hospital in Southampton, Hampshire, for three months in 2014 for depression and had returned home after showing improvement – but her condition deteriorated again the following year.The grandmother died on November 12 2015 after she had become distressed and escaped from her Southampton home through an upstairs window before climbing off the garage roof and running away. Marion MunnsCredit:Family handout/PA Marion Munns Her body was found on the M27 motorway and the Winchester inquest heard that the mother-of-two died of severe multiple injuries.Her husband, John Munns, said in a statement that her condition deteriorated during 2015 and her behaviour became increasingly “erratic”, including an obsession with drinking water.He said she had become “sullen and lethargic” and added: “She was zombie-like with no personality. This wasn’t my Marion, she was deteriorating.” If I didn’t like what I saw I was to call 999 but I wasn’t told what to ask for.
