Joel Embiid considers himself the James Harden of big men

Image
Coming into the season, the Philadelphia Sixers big man Joel Embiid was one of the favorites to win the NBA’s MVP award, an award that was won by the Houston RocketsJames Harden.An article in The Athletic details how Embiid thinks of himself as the ‘James Harden of big men’ and citing a story with Dwight Howard as an example:

“An irate Howard complained to an official that the swipe-through move shouldn’t be rewarded but started to chuckle when Embiid whispered something as he walked to free throw line. Asked later what Embiid stated that was so funny, Howard shook his head and said, “Blame James Harden.”



When reminded of that exchange with Howard, Embiid flashed a grin and added, “I did that three times in a row. He didn’t learn from it. And I did it again the next game and I was like, ‘You stupid or what?’
“I’ve said it before; I’m the James Harden of bigs. I know how to draw fouls.”

Embiid is not only comparable to Harden just because he can draw fouls but also because of the skill l…

SDSS students rebut "dangerous" characterization

Image
To the Editor,
This letter to parents and students of future Grade 7 and 8 students was shared with the Shoreline Beacon We are Grade 12 students at Saugeen District Secondary School (SDSS), as well as members of our Student Council.
After attending the information session at SDSS Nov. 5, it was unfortunately obvious that some parents have a very skewed view of our school. We are writing this letter to both acknowledge these concerns and to rebut them. Students at SDSS are academically driven, very involved, and passionate. The students strive for success in many different aspects of school, and do so with maturity and respect to all. At SDSS we have a broad range of programs and clubs specifically directed towards inclusivity, allowing all students to find their place.
As members of Student Council, we have committed our year to increasing school spirit, with much success. We have started to create an environment where students of all ages and backgrounds are able to work together, allo…

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. -- There were harsh insults unleashed by the man who represents the defeated Adams County Sheriff about the man who will soon take over that office.
Current Sheriff Mike McIntosh, a Republican, is out and his Democratic challenger Rick Reigenborn is in.
That clearly didn"t sit well with department spokesman Jim Morgen, who posted angry, profanity laced comments on a friend’s Facebook page saying voters who chose Reigenborn are “stupid.”
"I’m so disgusted with Colorado and specifically Adams County voters that could only see a d. It makes me completely sick that some complete dumb ass will win as sheriff with no ability only and I mean only because he has a d in front of his name.” Morgen wrote, ”23 years of service down the drain with only retiring as an option."
Another vulgar comment strongly insults the sheriff-elect"s intelligence.
The posts have since been deleted. Both McIntosh and Reigenborn shared s…

Carvajal: Stupid and inept

Image
I’VE had my share of very exasperating moments in a traffic gridlock but none of them lasted for seven hours like the one reported in San Fernando, Cebu, on All Saints Day, Nov. 1. (All Souls Day is Nov. 2.) Anyway, in practically all of them the main cause--not so much of the gridlock but of the excruciatingly long time to unravel it--is counter-flowing stupid drivers.Stupid and/or ill-disciplined drivers have been known to occupy the oncoming lane and cause traffic to lock vehicles in place. Thus, in this latest case the gridlock was caused more by the local government unit’s (LGU) failure to anticipate a most likely problem than by the problem itself of stupid counter-flowing drivers.The road widening is a given. But with a thorough plan, the much bigger volume of vehicles through the construction areas should only slow down but not stop traffic. Only stupid counter-flowing drivers would stop it. And this the San Fernando LGU (and the Land Transportation Office?) failed miserably …

It"s not just the economy, stupid: Trump and Turnbull know it too well

Image
“Well, we have the greatest economy in the history of our country. But sometimes it’s not as exciting to talk about the economy.”Trump thought it was more exciting to talk about the 15,000 troops he"d ordered to the Mexican border to halt an “invasion” by immigrants. Illustration: Jim PavlidisCredit:More exciting to talk about how they might shoot the caravan heading for that border in the event that one throws a rock: “We will consider that a firearm. Because there’s not much difference.”More exciting to threaten an end to the centuries-old constitutional right to birthright citizenship, which he mocked as “ridiculous”. And when his party officials proposed that they finish the campaign with ads celebrating the economic “Morning in America”, Trump instead endorsed an untruthful ad demonising immigrants as cop-killers, an ad so incendiary that US TV networks refused to air it.“They argue it"s "morning in America," but in their ads, it"s not morning in America,” …

Prince Charles: "Me, meddle as a king? I"m not that stupid"

Image
The Prince of Wales has sought to quell concerns that he would be a “meddling” or activist king , saying “I’m not that stupid”. His words, the strongest yet on the subject of his kinghood, are to be broadcast in a documentary on BBC One on Thursday to mark his 70th birthday.
Declaring the role of sovereign and heir to be different, Prince Charles maintains he is aware of the constraints he will encounter as king, and says his behaviour will change. Acknowledging that some people have accused him of being a meddling prince, he argues that he has always tried to be non-party political. “It is vital to remember there’s only room for one sovereign at a time. Not two,” he says.
He also says in the documentary, entitled Prince, Son and Heir, Charles at 70: “You can’t be the same as the sovereign if you’re the Prince of Wales or the heir. But the idea somehow that I’m going to go on in exactly the same way if I have to succeed, is complete nonsense because the two situations are completely dif…
