They will probably be charged with contempt of court in the next few days, and will as a result face a prison sentence or a fine. They are due to appear in court again in early September._____________________________________________________________________________19.08.2005Two journalists summoned to reveal sourcesReporters Without Borders is alarmed that witness summonses have been issued against journalists Michael Harvey and Gerard McManus compelling them to appear before a court in Melbourne on 23 August where the two, of the daily Herald Sun in Canberra, will be asked under threat of legal penalty if the defendant is one of their sources.The two journalists disclosed in a 20 February 2005 article a government plan not to pay war veterans 500 million dollars they had been promised in supplementary benefits. After the article appeared, both men were summoned as witnesses to the trial of government official Desmond Patrick Kelly, who is charged with leaking the information.”Reporters Without Borders believes that this judicial step is damaging to the principle of the protection of sources. Forcing journalists to reveal this kind of information would constitute an extremely dangerous precedent for press freedom in the country”.”The Australian justice system has to understand that, without the protection of sources guaranteed to journalists before the courts, nobody in possession of sensitive information would any longer dare to make it available,” the organisation said.The two told Reporters Without Borders that they had no intention of giving way to the court’s demand. McManus, who has already been brought before a preliminary hearing, refused to reply to the judge when he asked him if he knew Kelly.Harvey and McManus both face prison.

Distinguished Visitors Participate in Four-Day Embark Aboard USS Missouri

first_img View post tag: Distinguished View post tag: Aboard Training & Education View post tag: Four-Day Back to overview,Home naval-today Distinguished Visitors Participate in Four-Day Embark Aboard USS Missouri View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Missouri March 16, 2012 Distinguished visitors participated in a four-day embark aboard Virginia-class submarine USS Missouri (SSN 780), as it operated in the Atlantic Ocean, March 9.The guests gained an appreciation and awareness of the capabilities of the Missouri as it transited from the Navy’s Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center in the Bahamas to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia.“As the first Senior Executive Service member to hold the new OPNAV N9I position, it was of great value to me to come to sea on the USS Missouri to see firsthand all the capabilities that are resident in this awesome warship,” said Deputy Director Warfare Integration (N9I) Mike Novak.Visitors witnessed the enhanced capabilities of the Virginia-class platform as the submarine transited through the oceans’ depths. They also gained an appreciation for the submarine’s enhanced sensor and ship’s control capabilities, as well as a better understanding of what the platform provides to the nation’s defense. Attack submarines provide offensive and defense capabilities to include: insertion of Special Forces, as well as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.Rear Adm. Rick Breckenridge, commander, Submarine Group 2 hosted the distinguished visitors and discussed what Missouri’s latest certification means not only to the submarine force, but to the nation’s defense. “After USS Missouri’s commissioning and her impressive completion of its post-shake down availability the submarine is at a major transition point in the ship’s life and is ready to go into harm’s way in the defense of our nation,” said Breckenridge. “It’s an exciting time to be in the submarine force as USS Missouri joins the active fleet to assume her rightful position in defense of our nation.”Two academic leaders from Yale University also participated in the embark and reflected on the engineering marvels the agile platform provides and the takeaways they can bring back to the university for the benefit of their future scholars and new Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps class.“The two biggest impressions I will share with my students and colleagues are that the Virginia-class submarine is an incredibly impressive engineering platform for the submarine force, and that the skill, dedication and commitment of the officers and crew are inspiring,” said Paul Van Tassel, professor of engineering, Yale University.Navy Capt. Glenn Kuffel, assigned to the Force Development office in the office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, discussed his personal takeaways from his embark experience. “These boats have a great utility across a variety of missions in defense of our nation and our national security interests,” said Kuffel.Army Maj. Glen Clubb, an advisor for the deputy assistant secretary of defense for plans in OSD policy said experiencing life aboard a submarine provides a unique perspective.“Books will not do it, one must have an experience like this to fully appreciate the capabilities provided by the submarine force,” said Clubb.On the final night aboard Missouri, the visitors witnessed a rite of passage when three officers and two enlisted Sailors received their dolphins granting them the right and honor to be called “submariners.” “It’s a major milestone and first impressions mean a lot in the submarine force,” said Lt. j.g. Joseph Innerst, one of the five submariners who received dolphins. “When you’re submarine qualified you demonstrate the technical knowledge in all warfare capabilities.”Breckenridge praised the crew for the accomplishments and congratulated those who received dolphins.“To the fighting men of USS Missouri, I’m very proud of you and wish you the best in all your endeavors,” said Breckenridge.Prior to the visitors’ embark, Missouri successfully completed their operational certification and was deemed ready for tasking, which prepares the submarine and its crew for deployment. Cmdr. Tim Rexrode, Missouri’s commanding officer reflected on the submarine’s certification and reaching this pivotal milestone.“The certification is the final testing of the ship in order to enter the Navy’s deployment preparations,” said Rexrode, who added that Missouri is the first Virginia-class submarine to complete its post-shake-down availability from General Dynamics Electric Boat six weeks early which directly supports the Navy’s submarine force. “When we partnered earlier on during our availability it delivered USS Missouri six weeks early and enabled us to support fleet exercises, which in turn provided the opportunity for other submarines to support major naval fleet exercises,” said Rexrode.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , March 16, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: USS View post tag: participate View post tag: Visitors View post tag: Embark View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval Distinguished Visitors Participate in Four-Day Embark Aboard USS Missouri Share this articlelast_img read more

Byron Murphy, CB, WashingtonWhat Murphy gives up in size (5-11, 170 pounds) and press coverage potential, he makes up for in speed, aggressiveness and ball-hawking skills.22. Garrett Bradbury, C, N.C. StateAt 6-3, 306 pounds, Bradbury has the smarts, leadership qualities, agility and strength needed to be a long-term NFL starter at his position.23. Irv Smith, TE, AlabamaSmith is a technically sound run blocker and route runner who has shown some vertical receiving juice to go with compact size (6-3, 243 pounds).24. Dexter Lawrence, DT, ClemsonLawrence is a textbook inside run-stuffer with ideal size (6-4, 351 pounds) to both occupy and engulf overmatched blockers.25. Marquise Brown, WR, OklahomaBrown offers plenty of flash as a field-stretching receiver at 5-10, 160 pounds. He has elite vertical speed, plus great quickness going into and coming out of routes.26. Deandre Baker, CB, GeorgiaBaker plays bigger than his size (5-11, 185 pounds) and can give any team a smart, physical coverage presence.27. Jaylon Ferguson, OLB/DE, Louisiana TechCarrying some nice pop as a pass-rusher and having been productive in that area, Ferguson will get on the field first in the NFL as a big (6-5, 269 pounds), natural run-stopper on the edge.28. Christian Wilkins, DT, ClemsonWilkins brings size at 6-4, 315 pounds, and he is the most versatile of the Tigers’ first round-worthy linemen. He is equally adept at controlling blocks vs. the run and getting to the passer.29. Kaleb McGary, OT, WashingtonMcGary has moved up the board as he has proved to scouts he can match his massive frame (6-7, 317 pounds) with power and explosiveness. He is athletic enough to handle at least starting at right tackle before rounding out his footwork and agility to possibly play on the left side.30. Drew Lock, QB, MissouriEntering the draft as a four-year starter from Missouri, Lock has the arm to go with his ideal size at 6-4, 225 pounds. He also has the fearlessness and elusiveness NFL teams like in an aggressive, downfield passer. 51. Damien Harris, RB, Alabama52. Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina53. Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple54.

Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio StateBosa, at 6-3, 270 pounds, can be dominant rushing the passer from any spot with his strength, length and smarts. He carries more explosive upside than brother Joey of the Chargers.2. Josh Allen, OLB/DE, KentuckyAllen is loaded with moves to get to the quarterback at a sleek 6-4, 258 pounds. He also has the athleticism to help in second-level pass coverage.3. Quinnen Williams, DT, AlabamaWilliams shot up the draft board as a disruptive interior force for the Crimson Tide. His massive frame (6-4, 295 pounds) suggests he has Aaron Donald-like potential.4. Rashan Gary, DT/DE, MichiganGary is a high-upside, versatile player. He uses his hands, power and big frame at 6-5, 280 pounds to occupy run-blockers, and he also has some intriguing inside pass-rush ability.5. Montez Sweat, OLB/DE, Mississippi StateSweat brings ideal size (6-6, 241 pounds) and relentless productivity as an edge pass-rusher. He fits well in either a 4-3 or a 3-4 scheme.MORE NFL DRAFT:• 7 safest prospects in 2019• 7 riskiest prospects in 2019• Derek Carr to Redskins and other player-for-pick trades6. D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole MissMetcalf is a classic size-speed prospect at 6-4, 230 pounds who can both stretch the field and use his strength to catch contested balls in traffic and in the red zone.7. T.J. Hockenson, TE, IowaHockenson has the ideal size at 6-5, 243 pounds to do anything and everything at tight end with his hands, physicality, smarts and agility. He can be the next great all-around player at the position.8. Clelin Ferrell, DE, ClemsonFerrell’s size at 6-5, 260 pounds provides a good baseline as an outside run-stopper and explosiveness as a pass-rusher.9. Ed Oliver, DT/DE, HoustonOliver has slipped only because there’s a question of what position he fits best on the defensive line. He has become more of an end/tackle tweener at 6-1, 274 pounds in many scouts’ eyes rather than a can’t-miss inside pass-rush presence. But he is still an elite line prospect.10. Devin White, ILB, LSUWhite shows top-end athleticism while covering ground against the run, and he has good enough instincts to be a top intermediate cover man. At 6-0, 240 pounds, he is easily the rangiest defender in the 2019 class. 90. Beau Benzschawel, G, Wisconsin91. Andy Isabella, WR, UMass92. Michael Jordan, G, Ohio State93. Amani Hooker, S, Iowa94.

As teams have gotten closer looks at the top prospects from the NFL Combine through the pro day workouts in March, many have risen or fallen.Here is a look at the best 100 players available in the 2019 NFL Draft regardless of position, and how high each might be picked in relation to other players based on team needs, position scarcity and other factors. Also included are the rankings of the best players in the 2019 NFL Draft by position. 31. Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas StateRisner is a technically sound lineman with a mean streak to pair with his physicality. He is being undersold as a pass blocker, but he is already a huge (6-3, 308 pounds) asset in the running game.32. Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi StateAbram (5-11, 205 pounds) is a physical run defender who has shown he can be more than a clean-up man in the box. He also can use his position-ideal frame well in coverage.33. N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona StateAt 6-4, 216 pounds, Harry is a matchup nightmare through the red zone. He also can be a strong deep threat.34. Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre DameTillery was a beast as a three-technique at Notre Dame. At 6-7, 305 pounds, he matured well with his play and temperament to unleash the best of his inside pass-rush skills.35. Trayvon Mullen, CB, ClemsonMullen is emerging after an up-and-down 2018 season to stand out with his size (6-1, 194 pounds), speed, length and physicality.36. Noah Fant, TE, IowaLike his Iowa teammate Hockenson, Fant is an athletic receiver. But at 6-4, 232 pounds, he needs some work to develop into a reliable in-line blocker.37. Kelvin Harmon, WR, N.C. StateAs a deep threat, Harmon’s size (6-3, 214 pounds) and speed stand out. But he is also a savvy route-runner and a tough, willing blocker.38. Daniel Jones, QB, DukeJones has all-around, pro-tailored skills to go with his ideal size at 6-5, 220 pounds. He also has bonus qualities with his tough physical and mental make-up.39. Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Ohio StateJones is a natural inside pass-rusher who needs some bulking (6-3, 283 pounds) and coaching before he can be used consistently on running downs. But he can develop quickly in that area.40. A.J. Brown, WR, Ole MissBrown, at 6-1, 230 pounds, fits the profile as a No. 1 wide receiver in the NFL. He is a strong-handed, reliable route runner who is tough enough to make big plays after the catch, even in traffic.NFL DRAFT PLANS:Steelers | Cowboys | Browns | Dolphins41. Greg Little, OT, Ole MissLittle has the size (6-5, 325 pounds), agility and athleticism to suggest great upside as a pass protector, but his technique needs refinement, and he must learn how to better use his strength to his advantage.42. Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa StateButler has a massive frame for the position at 6-6, 225 pounds. He can dominate in going up to get balls in traffic, especially in the red zone.43. Taylor Rapp, S, WashingtonAt 6-0, 212 pounds, Rapp plays like an extra linebacker with his work in run support. He also is capable against the pass, at his best when blitzing and covering a short area.44. Nasir Adderley, S, DelawareAdderley has a good blend of cornerback coverage traits and physical tackling against the run and after the catch, playing longer and meaner than size at 6-0, 200 pounds.45. Mack Wilson, ILB, AlabamaWilson has the size (6-2, 236 pounds), ranginess and toughness against the run to be the next solid inside clean-up man from the Tide.46. David Montgomery, RB, Iowa StateAt 5-11, 216 pounds, Montgomery has emerged as a strong, all-around feature back prospect. He finishes runs strong and has shown some good hands and wiggle as a receiver.47. Jachai Polite, OLB/DE, FloridaAlthough a little undersized at 6-2, 242 pounds, Polite’s speed and athleticism are off the charts. He is a freak who channels some of former Gator Jevon Kearse. He just needs to harness it better.48. Juan Thornhill, S, VirginiaThornhill has great size (6-0, 210 pounds), smarts and coverage skills. He also cleans up well against the run.49. Yodny Cajuste, OT, West VirginiaCajuste plays with good power and length at 6-5, 315 pounds, and he is best pure edge run blocker in the class. He needs to become a smoother pass protector in order to be trusted on the left side.50. Zach Allen, DE, Boston CollegeAt 6-5, 280 pounds, Allen is a big, smart, strong, high-effort player who excels at stopping the run. He has room to grow as a pass-rusher, too. 11. Jawaan Taylor, OT, FloridaTaylor offers great agility, smarts and technique to handle most athletic edge-rushers given his size at 6-5, 334 pounds. Scouts have learned that he is meant to be a left tackle.12. Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio StateHaskins cemented his stock late in the Buckeyes’ 2018 season, when he had some jaw-dropping games with his big arm and downfield accuracy. He has ideal size as a strong pocket passer (6-3, 220 pounds) and is advanced in reading defenses.13. Devin Bush, ILB, MichiganBush cleans up against the run with his quickness, and at 5-10, 225 pounds, he has all the attributes teams need in a cover linebacker. Little separates him and Devin White now.14. Andre Dillard, OT, Washington StateDillard is light on feet for his size (6-5, 306 pounds) and carries all the natural pass-protection skills NFL teams love.15. Cody Ford, OT, OklahomaFord is a tough mauler at 6-4, 330 pounds who can open running lanes from right tackle. He is athletic enough to develop into a top pass-blocker in time, too.16. Josh Jacobs, RB, AlabamaA smart, complete back at 5-10, 216 pounds who runs with good vision and power, Jacobs is equally elusive as an outside runner and receiver.17. Greedy Williams, CB, LSUWilliams carries a long, lean frame at 6-3, 184 pounds with rare speed, quickness and agility for his size. He is not the most physical player, but he is fundamentally sound in coverage, and he uses his length well at the line to break up routes.18. Kyler Murray, QB, OklahomaMurray has some “it” qualities at quarterback to go along with his Heisman Trophy-winning passing and running. He lacks ideal size at 5-10, 195 pounds and is not the pocket prototype, but his playmaking flair is attractive enough for him to be drafted earlier than his profile suggests.19. Jonah Williams, OT, AlabamaWilliams is a smooth pass protector who also is big enough at 6-5, 301 pounds to pave the way in the running game.20. Brian Burns, DE/OLB, Florida StateComing off 15.5 sacks in his final Seminoles season, Burns is a dynamic edge pass-rusher and athlete. At 6-5, 231 pounds, he needs to get a little tougher in order to be used on running downs in the NFL.last_img read more

first_imgDodgers first baseman Max Muncy and Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner exchanged some words and gestures in a bizarre scene during Sunday’s game at Oracle Park.Muncy blasted a first-inning pitch from Bumgarner out of the stadium into McCovey Cove, then stood at home plate momentarily to admire it.

You run,'” Muncy said. “And I just responded back, ‘if you don’t want me to watch the ball, go get it out of the ocean.'””If you don’t want me to watch the ball, you can get it out of the ocean.” 😂@maxmuncy9 on his 1st inning HR off Madison Bumgarner. pic.twitter.com/lBSkGADMQd— SportsNet LA (@SportsNetLA) June 9, 2019As it turned out, that was the only run of the game as the Dodgers held on to win, 1-0. As Muncy trotted around the bases, he and Bumgarner exchanged words and gestures. At one point, Muncy appeared to gesture in the direction of McCovey Cove.
