FLINT, MI — Free COVID-19 and flu shots will be available at a “Family Vaccination Day” event in Flint this weekend.

Hamilton Community Health Network will be hosting the event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 22.

Hamilton Community Health Network pediatrician Shaheen Sheikh said getting your children vaccinated can help them feel a sense of control.

“Many children fear they will get COVID or their parents will develop it,” Sheikh said in a press release from Hamilton. “COVID-19 can affect children beyond illness, as the general well-being of many children has been negatively affected by the pandemic.”

Supplies are limited and the event will be first come, first served. More information is available at Hamiltonchn.org.

Genesee County suffers from a high COVID-19 positivity rate of 38.6% on average. This is on the other side of the period of record new cases since the start of 2022. To date, there have been more than 84,000 cases and 1,429 people in Genesee County have died.

The towns of Bellaire and West University Place are using smartphone technology to make city services more accessible.

For Bellaire, the city unveiled SeeClickFix Bellaire: a localized job and request management application. Bellaire Community Relations Administrator Cheryl Bright said the app replaces the city’s Resident Request Center and allows residents to report issues or concerns in real time.

“If they see something like a pothole, residents can take a picture of it and send it directly to the correct department they need to go to,” Bright said.

According to Bright, the app should streamline and help promote engagement between residents and city staff. There are also plans to expand the application, if successful, to include an internal work order system.

The app also includes links to the city’s holiday trash and recycling schedule, and can help with lost and found pets, Bright said.

“If you found an animal or lost an animal, it will take you directly to the phone number to call on the app,” Bright said.

The app should not be used for things that pose a threat to public safety or require immediate attention, such as fallen cables or tree branches in the street, which should be reported directly to the city or Bellaire’s non-emergency line. For issues that require a community process, involve multiple departments or non-municipal entities, residents should also contact the city directly.

The Bellaire website also displays a map of current applications.

To download the app, go to bellairetx.gov/seeclickfixbellaire. The application is free on the App Store or Google Play.

West U’s MyWestU app was recently launched in conjunction with the city’s updated website. The app is designed as an extension of the city’s website, aiming to give residents better access to city information.

“We’re hoping to make this a one-stop-shop for residents so they don’t have to open a window browser and try to find things on the website,” West U communications coordinator Bianca Cuccerre said. . “They will be able to do everything from the app itself.”

MyWestU also allows residents to submit service requests and upload relevant photos that could help streamline city services.

“The app really is the best way for residents to stay connected,” Cuccerre said. “In addition to receiving our texts and emails, they can also receive a push notification on their phone. It really gives them the ability to customize how they get their information from the city. »

To download the app, go to www.westutx.gov/1366/MYWestU-App.

SAN FRANCISCO — There’s a conversation Trey Lyles, 26, would love to have with himself, 20. It’s brutal but necessary. It is rooted in experience and seasoned with wisdom.

It would look something like this…

“I would tell him to be confident,” Lyles told The Athletic on Monday. “Trust the work you do. Don’t worry about what people are going to say, or what people are going to say about a missed shot or whatever you’re doing there. Go ahead and trust yourself. ”

However, time does not allow us to go back. He just goes forward. Lyles can’t go back in time, re-enter the league and get a leg up that his current version didn’t have. Lyles doesn’t want that, though. He is happy where he is in life, in his job. Lyles appreciates where the lessons and the journey have taken him so far.

“My first two years, if my confidence was down, I would be out there and not shoot the ball. I would let punches pass,” Lyles said. “I would try to be a spin type and move the ball around and stuff like that. I had spurts where my confidence was high and I was playing really well. Then I would have a bad game and the confidence would be shaken.

“Over the years I have tried to improve my mental ability to bounce back. This year was a turning point for me with that. I worked a lot during the off-season on my state of mind. Just having faith in who I am as a player is huge.

What’s a sure sign that you’re getting older, that you’ve traveled a lot in the neighborhood, or both?

For me, Saturday’s class at the Indiana State Athletic Hall of Fame, celebrated by the Hulman Center crowd during media breaks from the ISU men’s basketball game with Loyola, was yet another reminder.

Of the five honorees blessed to be loved by the Sycamore faithful, three of the members – Darcy Wood of softball, Lauren Martin of athletics and Sean Manaea of ​​baseball all plied their trades while I plied the mine as Tribune-Star’s ISU beat writer.

A fourth Hall of Famer – Shannon Jackson – played at ISU before my time, but coached twice with me.

Of course, it’s not about me, and for the fans? The most visible of the inductees is Manaea — given the wildly successful Major League Baseball career he’s had since his equally successful stint as a Sycamore put him on the map.

Manaea had serious promise of being drafted in the first round by Kansas City in 2013 – he would have been drafted earlier than he was at No. 34 overall if not for a hip injury he had at the start. era – and he did nothing but live up to it.

Traded to Oakland while still in the minor leagues, Manaea is 129-128 in six seasons with the A’s. Manaea has a career ERA of 3.86, good for an ERA+ of 107, which means he is better than the MLB average over this career. Manaea has 641 career strikeouts and is averaging 7.9 punches per nine innings.

Most National baseball fans, and honestly, probably many ISU fans as well, see Manaea as the confident cog in an A’s staff who put Oakland in the American League playoffs twice in career de Manaea – with a near miss in 2021. The no-hitter southpaw, a feat he accomplished in April 2018 against the Boston Red Sox.

I remember Manaea as a kind of shy, soft-spoken and very often awkward kid from Wanatah, whom then-ISU coach Rick Heller took on as one of his biggest projects. successful.

The guy who once interviewed me with a baseball glove on his cap. (And who made another, slightly modified, Double Bubble bucket over his head in Oakland after his no-hitter.)

Like everyone who goes from young man to finished product, it was cool for me to see Manaea not only comfortable with his career, but also, legitimately happy to be back at ISU, a place for which he still has a lot of love.

“There are a lot of people I don’t talk to or communicate with as much as I would like, but coming back brings back those memories. The people here have played a huge part in who I’ve become. It’s great to be back in the state of Indiana. A lot of things have grown here,” Manaea said.

Manaea is a baby as far as the ISU Hall of Fame is concerned. He is only 29 years old. It’s a young age to be able to reflect on a still very thriving career, but Manaea appreciates his ISU experience and relishes the chance to return to Terre Haute not just to be appreciated, but to demonstrate his own appreciation.

“Reflection is a relative thing. It’s nice to look back. The things I’ve done, where I’ve been and where I’m from. I think it really puts things into perspective. I don’t am not just a big shot I came from Wanatah and I went to Indiana State which is not the biggest name or the school and I made it to the major leagues Coming back reminds me so much memories,” Manaea said.

Manaea is coming off a 2021 season which, by advanced statistical measure, has been its best. Manaea was 11-10 with a 3.91 ERA and a career-high 194 strikeouts for an Oakland team that won 86 games. Per WAR, Manaea’s 3.8 was a career high, just edging out his rookie season.

It was especially nice for Manaea, who missed most of the 2019 season with left shoulder tendonitis and had to undergo surgery to fix it.

“Every day you ask this question [health-wise], will I be good today? It eats you up a bit. You start to doubt yourself a little. Have that off the plate and feel good? Then it’s more about executing than giving your arm away. I don’t think about that when I go out there on the mound [in 2021]”said Manaea.

Manaea used his lead-change-curve combination to good effect for the A’s. Batters hit just .213 against his curve, according to baseballsavant.com, an improvement of 83 percentage points over his 2020 rate.

Manaea threw a fastball and a slider for the Sycamores, but another thing he was known for was a phenomenal pickup move.

It was absolutely a weapon for Manaea during the 2012 ISU Regional season, including three one-game selections in the 1-0 ISU Regional loss to Austin Peay in Oregon. Statistical standards for pickoffs are tricky, but what if you counted pickoffs marked as stolen? Manaea easily achieved double-digit success rates in 2012.

However, Manaea’s withdrawal move unfortunately became inactive as a pro.

“Coach Heller told us lefties – Paz [Tyler Pazik] and Greg [Kuhlman] – and said he would teach us a pick-up move. He had a full program of six different exercises and we mastered it in the fall. Man, that was a game-changer,” Manaea said on his ISU tee shot.

“I’m coming to pro ball and trying all of that stuff. First I was slow and had trouble throwing first because of yapping. In middle school, I was pretty accurate throwing first, but outside factors came into my head and I wasn’t picking anyone up, so we gave it up. I haven’t had that pick-up since my healthy first year in professional ball,” Manaea lamented.

It’s OK. We remember how good Manaea was at knocking out runners and, more importantly, his excellence on the mound. Oakland fans can appreciate Manaea up close at RingCentral Coliseum, but ISU fans nod proudly as they salute him from afar.

Unfortunately, it could be a while before anyone gets a chance to see Manaea star on the mound. Major League Baseball locked out the players with the expiration of the collective agreement in December. MLB and the Major League Baseball Players Association show little sign of a thaw in their icy labor negotiations.

“I don’t know if I’m doing well or badly, but the only thing I can do is be ready. Be ready like the regular season is about to start [on-time]. I’m ready for this, but if [it doesn’t start time], I’ll be ready for that too. There are things to understand. I hope we can understand these things and start the season,” Manaea said.

Saturday was not the day to reflect on the uncertainty of the big league. It was time to show appreciation for one of ISU’s all-time greats…and for Manaea to return his love.

“Indiana State allowed me to get out and play, good or bad. This place believed in me,” Manaea said. “Indiana State’s part in my success is huge. It’s a totem…and Indiana State is way up there.”

How or where to store your loaf of bread isn’t ideally the sort of thing that keeps you up at night, but it’s something Ms. Hinch fans can’t agree on.

A kitchen cupboard? The freezer? Above the microwave?

With so many options, there might not be a right answer, but one thing is certain: bread bins are out.

When a member of Ms Hinch’s Cleaning Tips and Tricks Facebook group asked how others store theirs, nearly 700 people responded.

The poster read: “My bread basket has seen better days and is taking up too much room on the side.

“How do you store yours? »

A straightforward response from a number of commentators was to simply keep it “in a closet”.

One of them added: “…aux biccies” (biscuits).



For households that cannot go through a loaf of bread in a few days, the easiest option was to put it in the freezer.

But for those who might not have the luxury of extra storage space or a pantry, a few had other ideas.

Rather controversially, a large number of band members have said they keep it in the fridge.

“In the fridge, it lasts much longer,” replied one.

But a handful of comments roundly condemned it.

One person said, “Can’t believe how many people keep bread in the fridge?? It’s getting stale!!”

While another said: “The cupboard where it doesn’t sit down so quickly, if the bread was meant for the fridge the supermarkets would store it there.

“I freeze sometimes if I’m not going to finish all the bread because it’s good for toast.”

It’s very easy to sign up – all you have to do is click here and enter your email address.

A quick Google search, which was also shared as a screenshot by a few members, warned people to “never” leave bread in the fridge.

According to Good Housekeeping, storing bread in the fridge can cause it to go stale faster because starch molecules recrystallize quickly in cool temperatures.

One person said, “Really, it should be fresh every day. Birds have leftovers.”

But for those who can’t get through a loaf of bread in a day, another suggestion was the freezer.

“In the freezer. There are only 2 of us and 1 loaf lasts us about 4 weeks,” said one member of the group.

A third option suggested by Mrs. Hinch’s army was to use the microwave.

Presumably an empty kitchen side container for most of the day, some preferred to use the microwave for storage instead of a bread basket.

One Ms Hinch fan said: “If you don’t use your microwave very often it’s airtight and keeps the bread fresh longer. The only problem is when you need to use it and it stays warm for a while, you have to put the bread somewhere else.”

With the Facebook group tearing up, at the end, the original poster replied, “Thank you all, I’m going to ditch the bread basket and try the fridge.”

JACKSONVILLE – Let’s go…

Is a head coach’s relationship with the players or the other coaches more important? In other words, does a head coach’s ability to manage and lead their coaching staff deserve more weight when it comes to head coach candidates? This seems like something very difficult for outsiders to assess, but essential for long-term success.

I consider the ability to manage and relate to people to be the most important trait for an NFL head coach – far more important than Xs and Os, ability to play, motivational lyrics, appearance in a suit, his reputation, etc. I guess I would put the relationship of the head coach with the players slightly above that of the relationship with the assistant coaches in terms of importance, but not by much. It is the ability to relate to and manage people. Everybody. Assistant coaches. Players. Support staff. Media. Etc., etc. You’re right that it doesn’t get as much attention when people discuss head coaches as most other things. And that’s because it’s harder to discuss and analyze. But that’s the key. That doesn’t mean every NFL head coach has to approach and handle people the same way. But if you can’t do that effectively, you’ll struggle to succeed as an NFL head coach.

John, if (and when) Covid goes away, do you think the media will be allowed back into the locker room? As a fan, I want the media to get more direct quotes there and, more importantly, off-the-record commentary. I guess players and teams want you out so they have more control over “the story”. How do you see this happening?

That is yet to be determined – and there is no doubt that coverage from all types of media has suffered from a lack of locker room access since the onset of COVID-19. While the media is still talking to players via zoom and in group/podium settings, there are far fewer opportunities for one-on-one chat without so-called “open locker room” periods. This hurts the media covering the team as it is more difficult to get honest assessments in the less intimate podium access. It’s also rarer for the media to be able to turn off cameras and recorders and have “real” conversations with players. Such conversations sometimes produce “scoops” and “exclusives”. More often than not, this is simply a chance to speak more frankly and openly than happens in group settings – which can benefit both players and the media. Anyway, the cover is more sterile and much less intimate. I guess it’s not the end of the world for fans, but it erodes the quality of coverage. Do I think locker room access will return? I’m skeptical. Optimistic? Yes, but definitely skeptical.

Keep telling yourself that John, but the check’s already in the mail. Bill O’Brien will be the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and that’s a very bad thing.

It is a beautiful thing when the uninformed among us speak with the confidence of the well-informed. It’s not as always accurate, but it’s beautiful.

Culture, culture, culture. The most overused word in the NFL – and really, everywhere. Pete Prisco says the culture has to change, but isn’t that what former Jaguar head coach Urban Meyer did? What did former Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone do? What did former Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley do? Culture doesn’t change every few years – and if it does, then it really isn’t culture, is it? I don’t know… I ask.

The culture almost always changes with a new head coach in the NFL. For the best or for the worst. Culture change is not always positive. And a change in culture can be fleeting. Here’s the thing to remember about culture and “membership”. They are not “easy” to create, but most head coaches can create them. Maintaining them is difficult and almost always involves winning. Regularly.

Donny from Heathrow, Florida, section 38, day 2

Wow…the quest to criticize Jaguars owner Shad Khan doesn’t stop. Besides your specific point that Mr. Khan is doing his due diligence (as he should), the Jags are still ahead of any team with an HC vacancy. They have already interviewed three candidates with three more interviews scheduled for this week, they have satisfied the Rooney rule by interviewing minority candidates, and Mr Khan could make a decision at any time. The Las Vegas Raiders had their vacancy before the Jags but have yet to publicly announce they have interviewed anyone. The Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos and New York Giants just fired their head coaches this week and are just beginning their search. The Jags are still in the driver’s seat to hire their selection of coaches if it’s the right person…there’s nothing smart about what Mr. Khan is doing!

There is no need to rush. The Jaguars are a good position for a head coach. It’s a good job. There’s a potential franchise quarterback, the No. 1 overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, and a patient owner willing to spend. Don’t worry about being the first to hire a head coach. Don’t worry about having a “name” or a “hot” candidate. Worry about doing things right.

“If you want to build the roster well, you’ll have to build through the draft — and you also have to provide the accompanying time to develop to build that way.” I generally agree with that statement, but these are the Jaguars we’re talking about. We both know that drawing and developing are not their forte. I’d rather see Shad overpay for senior players in free agency.

Just because the Jaguars haven’t drafted and developed enough doesn’t mean it’s the wrong way to build a roster. And that in no way means they won’t do well in the future. And if the Jaguars take the “well, we’ve never done it well, we’ll try” approach, then there’s no way the franchise will ever improve. As for simply overpaying in free agency to fix all of the Jaguars’ problems, the same free agency caveat that has always applied still applies: you can overpay anything you want – and you will. certainly – but players available through free agent are usually flawed. and sometimes seriously. This is because teams value their own players and don’t want to let them go if they consider them elite. It’s just not the way to build.

Is there any truth to the rumor that the Culligan Girl is being interviewed for the head coaching job?

I have no idea what you are talking about.

I traditionally believe you should draft a high-end lineman (offense or defense) on WR, but the Cincinnati Bengals make me think a little differently now. Chase (Bengals) looks like the absolute best option over Sewell (Lions). We need weapons.

You make a good point, and there’s no doubt that the Bengals’ success this season after selecting wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase No. 5 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft will change the way of think league wide. While it was once commonly believed that a great offensive lineman trumped a great wide receiver in the draft, the dynamics of the modern NFL are at the very least causing league members to reconsider this. The issue in the 2022 NFL Draft may be whether there is a receiver worthy of selecting that tier. If a Chase-like receiver were available, the Jaguars could go in that direction. The first indications are that there is none. Stay tuned, I guess.

Ozone, is the linebacker too high to be picked at No. 1 overall? Alabama linebacker Will Anderson is a stud and was arguably the best defensive player in the nation this season. I just worry if we need more help up front and his skills duplicate Josh Allen.

The No. 1 is usually too early to select a linebacker. I expect the Jaguars to select a No. 1 overall offensive or defensive lineman in the 2022 NFL Draft because it’s not considered too strong of a quarterback draft — and the latter factor will make it difficult to trade the No. 1 pick. But hey… given that the draft isn’t considered great at the top, this could be a year where a “strange” position moves to No. 1. (Note Editor’s Note: Alabama linebacker Will Anderson Jr. just completed his true second season and is ineligible for the 2022 NFL Draft.)

I love how people accuse you of being an accomplice to the company because you’re not an accomplice to the fans. Then people throw in words like no integrity when they judge people for not agreeing with their opinion. We live in a dysfunctional myopic world. It is impossible to converse with people who already know everything.

The world is a crazy place. It is inhabited partly by crazy, sometimes irrational, always passionate people, called fans. These fans sometimes write this forum. Sometimes they say nice things. Sometimes they don’t. But thank God for them. They are rarely boring.

The Kansas City Chiefs have placed a player on the COVID-19 practice squad roster.

According to the official NFL staff notice for Wednesday, the Chiefs placed TE development Mark Vital on the COVID-19 training team roster due to a positive test. This roster works like the normal reserve / COVID-19 roster, but for players on the practice squad. He will join his training teammate Josh Jackson as the only two players currently on COVID-19 rosters for Kansas City.

Vital, 25, is a former Baylor Bears college basketball player who undergoes a conversion to a tight end position. He joined the practice squad in September and has been working to make the change ever since. Despite a few injuries and COVID issues at the close end of the race earlier this season, Vital has yet to be elevated to the 53-player roster this season.

Wednesday was the first day the players were back in the team building after their Week 18 game against the Denver Broncos. There should be no concern about the spread as a result of this positive test.

Vital will be under the NFL’s most recent COVID-19 return-to-play protocols. This means that he will need at least one negative test result to be reinstated in the training squad.

It shouldn’t impact the team’s ability to prepare for the Pittsburgh Steelers ahead of the wildcard round. The team currently has three tight ends on the 53-man roster in addition to Nakia Griffin-Stewart and Matt Bushman on the practice squad.

Boba Fett? Boba Fett? When? In terms of fundamental questions about the Disney + series Boba Fett’s book, it’s easy to understand Who It is. But for the casual fan – or maybe even the most serious – knowing or and when all of this happening in the larger Star Wars context can be a bit confusing.

Where is Tatooine Boba fett event? When do the two timelines take place? Here is the complex setting of Boba Fett’s book Explain. Spoilers ahead for Boba Fett’s book Episodes 1 and 2.

This part of Boba fett comes five years later Return of the Jedi. The flashbacks happened five years ago.Lucasfilm

When Book by Boba Fett take place?

In the Star Wars timeline, Boba Fett’s book takes place in two distinct periods, separated by approximately five years. Here is how it goes:

  • The “gift“of Boba Fett – when Fett and Fennec Shand try to take control of a crime empire – pretty much goes 9ABY, on five years after Return of the Jedi. It was just after the events of The Mandalorian Season 2.
  • The “pass“of Boba fett – in which we follow Fett becoming a member of a Tusken Raiders tribe, following his escape from Sarlacc – takes place right after the events of Return of the Jedi. This therefore means that the “past” is approximately five years ago the current timeline of the show.
  • We also get some glimpses of Boba Fett’s childhood, which takes place during Attack of the Clones in 22 B.Y., so approximately 31 years before the “present” of the show.

Obviously, Fett has been hanging out with the Tusken tribe for a little while, so presumably the “past” of the show will catch up with the “present” at some point. In The Mandalorian Season 2 (9ABY again), we met Fett in the current timeline, as he was walking through the Tatooine Desert. Mando reunited him with that armor during this season, which set the context for the current timeline of Boba Fett’s book.

Now, it’s possible that the series will have flashbacks from different eras, in which case some of the timelines listed above will change.

Where is Book by Boba Fett take place?

Boba Fett’s book takes place on Tatooine. Star Wars never meticulously designed Tatooine geography like JRR Tolkien’s maps of Middle-earth or George RR Martin’s design of Westeros. Yet because most of the series takes place on this famous desert planet – the home of Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, and the affairs of Jabba the Hutt – the geography of Tatooine matters a lot. Here are the most important locations:

  • The sea of ​​dunes (of which there are maybe more than one)
  • Jabba Palace
  • Mos Espa (a town)
  • La Grande Fosse de Carkoon (location of Sarlacc)
  • Tosche station (where Fett steals these speeder bikes)
  • Mos Eisely (a spatial city, so far only mentioned and not seen in Boba fett)

But where are these places in relation to each other? Well, first of all, there are a few semi-official Tatooine maps floating around there, and they generally seem to focus on the immediate areas we know from the Star Wars movies and TV shows.

One of these cards is from media produced alongside the non-canon novel (Legends) Star Wars: Kenobi, published on Star Wars.com in 2013. It also now exists on Reddit and Wookieepedia.

There is also a much more colorful map from the 2017 book. Star Wars: Galactic Maps – An Illustrated Atlas of the Star Wars Universe, illustrated by Tim McDonagh. Of the two more easily searchable maps, this one is probably closer to canon, simply because it is newer.

What do we learn from these maps? Well here’s the big stuff:

  • Mos Eisely is northeast or southeast of Jabba Palace
  • Mos Espa appears to be the closest town to Jabba Palace but possibly northwest of it.
  • Tosche station is south of Mos Eisley
  • The Great Carkoon Pit is apparently east of Jabba Palace
  • “The Sea of ​​Dunes” is either southwest of Jabba’s Palace or northeast. (A card has of them Seas of dunes.)

Because Boba Fett talks about the sea of ​​dunes in Boba Fett’s book a lot, and these Tusken Raiders found him quite close to The Great Pit of Carkoon, it stands to reason that the flashbacks find Boba Fett in the sea of ​​dunes. North from Jabba Palace, Tosche Station and Mos Eisely. It also places this sea of ​​dunes quite far east of Mos Espa. Of all the places, it seems that Mos Espa is quite far from the Sea of ​​Dunes.

How big is the sea of ​​dunes?

The second episode of Boba Fett’s book – “The Tribes of Tatooine” – made a big deal out of the idea that Tatooine was once a planet with oceans, and that at least one of those oceans became “The Sea of ​​Dunes”. If this is true, the “sea of ​​dunes” could be much larger than we previously thought, meaning some of that patchwork geography could be incorrect.

However, assuming we are close in our assumptions about relative cardinal directions, the actual size of the sea of ​​dunes may not matter. Or if there are two seas of dunes. In any case, the sea of ​​dunes is far enough away from Jabba Palace, Mos Espa and Mos Eisley. Only Tosche station was close enough to the sea of ​​dunes for Boba Fett to go there. foot. So the sea of ​​dunes is vast and miles from any real civilization. In terms of direction, it’s probably north of everything, which means that when Boba Fett goes from the Sea of ​​Dunes to Tosche Station in Episode 2, he’s traveling south. (Unless he comes from the “western sea of ​​dunes” then he travels is.)

Where is Boba Fett’s ship parked?

In The Mandalorian In Season 2, we saw Fett reunite with his ship (which previously belonged to Jango Fett). The ship is sometimes referred to as “Slave I” in Legends canon. In the “present” of Boba Fett’s book, it is not difficult to know where the ship is. It’s probably parked at Jabba Palace or Mos Espa. But where is he in the flashbacks? If we assume it’s at Jabba’s Palace, that means Fett is enough away from his ship, however you look at him.

In Return of the Jedi, everyone must take a group of skiffs and a sailing barge to Sarlacc. Assuming they were traveling north (or east) – and Boba Fett only left Deeper in the sea of ​​dunes since then (in flashbacks) – that could easily mean that Boba Fett is much further from his ship than ever before.

So even if he could walk to Tosche Station, he might be too far away to take his ship, however fast these Banthas may gallop.

Pitt orders shelter in place for returning students; negative covid test to attend classes in person https://carfin.org.uk/pitt-orders-shelter-in-place-for-returning-students-negative-covid-test-to-attend-classes-in-person/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 13:16:32 +0000 https://carfin.org.uk/pitt-orders-shelter-in-place-for-returning-students-negative-covid-test-to-attend-classes-in-person/

Students returning to University of Pittsburgh campuses Monday for the start of the spring semester were ordered to stay in their dorms and get tested to make sure they haven’t been infected with the coronavirus.

The university has announced that it will provide its approximately 34,000 returning students with a free covid test through Quest Diagnostics.

School officials have asked students to submit test results before returning to campus housing in Oakland, Hempfield and other locations.

Unvaccinated students living on campus are required to submit a negative covid test result before returning to class.

Students began returning to the dorms on January 8.

“A university-wide shelter-in-place period will begin on Saturday, January 8 at all campuses,” officials from the Pitt Covid-19 Medical Response Office said. “After arrival, students must shelter in place for at least five days, whether you live on or off campus. ”

“Students should not go to class until they test negative for covid-19,” officials wrote in a communication to families. “Students who test positive will be given details on how to self-isolate. ”

University officials also asked students to limit close contact, wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

Students were advised to leave their residences only to attend in-person classes, collect food, visit the library, and for other essential activities. The group study is expected to be done remotely, officials said.

For courses in which in-person instruction has been approved, students should only attend if they have been vaccinated and do not show symptoms of covid. Unvaccinated students must provide the university with weekly covid tests that show they are negative for the virus.

All staff and students must also wear face coverings inside all buildings on campus.

Public access to the Pitt building is also restricted to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo .– For the second time in four years, the Denver Broncos’ continuing playoff drought has cost the head coach his job.

The Broncos, after a 7-10 record, sacked Vic Fangio on Sunday as they missed the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season.

Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis said he briefed Fangio of the decision in a conversation on Sunday morning that also included general manager George Paton.

“Over the past three seasons, Vic has put all his heart and soul into coaching the Broncos,” Ellis said in a statement. “I would like to thank Coach Fangio for giving the maximum effort to our organization since the day he was hired.

“George will have full authority to select the next Broncos head coach. It is his decision and his schedule. I have every confidence in George’s ability to conduct a comprehensive and successful head coach search.

“We will give George all available resources and fully support him in hiring the best head coach to lead the Broncos.”

The Broncos fired Fangio’s predecessor Vance Joseph after the 2018 season after two years of service. He is currently the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals.

The Broncos’ defense finished in the league’s top 10 in almost every major category, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater clocked a career-high 18 touchdowns despite missing the last three games with concussion. . But Denver’s hesitant offense and inconsistent special teams play ultimately cost Fangio his job.

Fangio, 63, has completed the third year of a four-year contract he signed when he replaced Joseph in 2019.

Fangio’s fall, beyond his record 19-30 in his three seasons, has been fueled by the still-ongoing search for a long-term solution to the quarterback, a change at GM ( Paton was hired to replace John Elway in 2021) and a struggling to score points. There were also some ownership upheavals, which included a legal battle with the team set to be sold over the coming year.

Fangio has also encountered obstacles amid the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two seasons, including a 2020 loss to the New Orleans Saints in which the Broncos had none of their quarterbacks in uniform. for the match.

“I have immense respect for Vic and all he has accomplished in the NFL,” Paton said in a statement. “Over the past year, I appreciate his partnership, his friendship and the tireless work ethic he has demonstrated as a head coach.

“Vic will continue to be very successful in this league, and I thank him for all he has done for the Broncos as well as for me personally.”

The Broncos were 7-6 and were squarely in the AFC’s confused playoff race with four games to go. Paton had said several times during the second half of the season how much he respected Fangio and how much he enjoyed “working with Vic”.

But the last four games haven’t gone well, with the Broncos losing everyone. Denver has not played a playoff game since winning Super Bowl 50 to close the 2015 season, and has not finished above 0.500 since a 9-7 in 2016.

Players had often said that they appreciated Fangio’s honesty and straightforward demeanor. But the quarterback’s turnstile, another season where he failed to score more than 23 points per game – they haven’t since 2014 – and more than a few other bobbles on special teams were too tough to overcome for Fangio.

Bridgewater was the 10th different quarterback to start at least one game for the Broncos since Week 13 of the 2016 season, a total that does not include running back Philip Lindsay opening behind center in the 2020 game against the Saints.

Elway, who stepped down as the team’s chief football decision maker after the 2020 season – he remained president of football operations – hired Fangio with the hope that his discipline, responsibility, teaching and expertise. the defensive side of the ball would be enough to break the Broncos’ drought in the playoffs.

At the time, Elway called these things “the foundation of football,” and Fangio had waited decades for his first opportunity as a head coach. Fangio had promised that the details would matter and that the Broncos would not suffer “death by inches”.

But even his hope of a dynamic pass rush duo of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb fueling the defense failed to materialize. Chubb missed all but four games of the 2019 season with an ACL tear and Miller missed the entire 2020 season with an ankle injury.

Chubb then missed nine of the season’s first 10 games after ankle surgery, and Paton traded Miller to the Los Angeles Rams in early November.

The Broncos will be an attractive landing point for Fangio’s replacement with a young team, plenty of room for the salary cap and 11 picks already in hand for the April draft.

“Looking forward, there is a lot of work to be done for us to take the next step,” Paton said in a statement Sunday. “Winning is not easy, and we will take the opportunity to improve in every area of ​​our operations.

“Our search to find the next Broncos head coach will be a comprehensive and collaborative process. We approach it with an open mind and look forward to spending time with outstanding candidates.”
