Members of the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force were seen on the grounds of the Financial Center during the protest action while opposition members stood outside bearing placards.According to information disclosed by Opposition Leader Lennox Linton, which we have not yet been successful in verifying, four of the DLP candidates have been given government employment.They are Dr Martin Christmas, who contested the Marigot Constituency, as liaison in the ministry of health, Nicholas ‘Shanks’ Esprit who contested the Salisbury Constituency, as adviser in the ministry of agriculture, Athenia Benjamin who contested the Wesley Constituency as liaison officer in the ministry of diaspora Affairs and Alvin Bernard who contested the Roseau Central constituency as analyst in poverty reduction.Mr Linton also disclosed that the four candidates are receiving compensation of eighty thousand dollars ($80,000) a year.Mr Linton told Dominica Vibes there are several burning issues affecting the country that are not being given priority by the government. “We have a situation where these rejected candidates have been retained by the government using state money for eighty thousand dollars each per year, at the same time the National Employment Program appears to be under threat and the Black Sigatoka issue is not improving, banana ills are not going anywhere, we are not selling any more bananas, poor people children remain unemployed at the rate of upwards of seventy percent of our young people,” he said. Linton noted that another issue of concern to the Opposition is the infestation of bed bugs at the Princess Margaret Hospital, a situation which the chief medical officer Dr David Johnson reported “is under control”. He said the government has not given priority to these “critical situations” but is instead “putting priority on employing its own”.“They are making sure that they are taken care off, they are setting up an economic council so they can have a director, Ambrose George for eighty thousand dollars a year,” Mr Linton said. He said all of these salaries were not budgeted for in the 2014/2015 national budget and is considered to be reckless spending of the public’s money.Mr Linton reiterated his earlier call for the downsizing of the Cabinet saying it is hurting the finance of the country. “We also note the expansion in the size and the cost of the Cabinet and we really think that the government can do better than that”.“We really think this is totally unnecessary and this focus on really taking care of your own, at this time when people are suffering is insensitive as it is corrupt and we are hoping that the government will change its mind about that,” he said. – / 11
Sep 19, 2015; Starkville, MS, USA; Mississippi State Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott (15) runs off the field after the game against Northwestern State Demons at Davis Wade Stadium. Mississippi State won 62-13. Mandatory Credit: Matt Bush-USA TODAY SportsSTARKVILLE – Two quarterbacks orbited Southeastern Conference Media Days as the league’s biggest stars in July. The gravitational pull of Dak Prescott and Jeremy Johnson reeled to their tables the largest hordes of media.When the league released its preseason All-SEC teams, Prescott was first-team. Johnson was second.Las Vegas viewed Johnson as a better player, handing the Auburn quarterback 10/1 odds to win the Heisman Trophy in July. Prescott, Mississippi State’s quarterback, paid out at 12/1.Saturday was supposed to feature Prescott squaring off against Johnson at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Instead, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday that Sean White will start at quarterback for the Tigers.“We feel like that is the best for the offense right now,” Malzahn said. “Sean White is a guy that has gotten a lot of reps. He has responded very well in practices and in scrimmages. We feel like he needs a shot right now and we have a lot of confidence in him. He is our starting quarterback.”Sep 19, 2015; Baton Rouge, LA, USA; Auburn Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson (6) reacts after a fumble is lost to the LSU Tigers during the third quarter of a game at Tiger Stadium.Johnson’s hype never translated to the field.He threw six interceptions in three games. The junior completed 59.7 percent of his passes for 473 yards and five touchdowns.The quarterback debuted as Auburn’s starter with three interceptions against Louisville. The Tigers struggled to beat FCS-opponent Jacksonville State in week two. Auburn won 27-20 in overtime. Johnson threw two interceptions in the game.In his final game as starter, Johnson completed 11 of 19 passes for 100 yards against LSU last week. He threw for two touchdowns and an interception and Auburn lost 45-21.Auburn ranks 12th in the SEC in passing yards per game. Only LSU and South Carolina average less than Auburn’s 157.7 yards per game. Johnson ranks 11th among SEC quarterbacks in passing yards per game. His six interceptions are the most among SEC starters. Eight quarterbacks own a better completion percentage.“It is pretty unique, and it is a little surprising from a coach’s standpoint,” Malzahn said. “You have to do what you feel is best for your team and your offense each week. We have confidence and I am looking forward to seeing Sean.”White, a redshirt freshman, hasn’t taken a snap in a game since high school. He passed for 2,679 yards and 30 touchdowns at University Nova South in Fort Lauderdale Florida. He was named the MVP of the Under Armour All-American Game and ESPN ranked him as the No. 2 high school quarterback in the country. Rivals rated him No. 4, 247Sports ranked him as the No. 6 quarterback.Prescott started his first SEC game at Jordan-Hare Stadium in 2013. From there he grew into the best quarterback in Mississippi State’s history.The fifth-year senior has captured a school record in MSU’s first three games this season. Last week, he became the school’s all-time leading passer. He now owns 21 school records.“Wins are the most important record to me right now,” Prescott said. “Whatever records I have broken, I’ll look back at later in life and be proud of that.”Prescott is playing his best football of the season. He’s completed 33 of his last 43 passes for 474 yards and three touchdowns. He’s yet to throw an interception this season.“It is not just him, it’s the offense,” MSU coach Dan Mullen sad. “The offense, for the most part, was clicking on Saturday.”Both teams own 2-1 records and are 0-1 within the SEC. Since 1992, only LSU has won the league championship game after starting the season 0-2 in the SEC.Auburn is a shell of the team picked to win the SEC. In addition to Johnson’s benching, the Tigers’ top defender, Carl Lawson, won’t play this weekend.Mississippi State, picked to finish last in the West, is healthy with a veteran quarterback.“We’re rolling,” Prescott said. “I think we are dangerous when we can do that.”Auburn benches QB Jeremy Johnson, will start Sean WhiteContact Michael Bonner at [email protected] Follow @MikeBBonner on Twitter.

If these proportions are correct and maintained to other teams, the striping on the Lions’ helmet will be really narrow.

If these proportions are correct and maintained to other teams, the striping on the Lions’ helmet will be really narrow.Actually, since I kept the proportions pretty similar league-wide the Lions may be the closest. I also just realized I forgot the Cowboys’ classic helmet sticker in the white stripe. I’ll update those real quick.EDIT: I adjusted the proportions of the helmet stripes. Looks better now, I think. vicfurth Link to post 4,184 posts 0 Members 8,082 posts 1 Share this post Share on other sites 629 376 Sign in to follow this Link to post Share this post 376 376 Prev Link to post vicfurth Posted December 3, 2012 tohasbo 8,082 posts Location:Wembley Stadium Location:Washington, DC Share on other sites Share this post 376 8,082 posts vicfurth 46,552 posts Share this post 0 376 376 Giants helmet stripe is too thin. I believe the NY is disproportionally small too.Also stripes on Skins white pants seem too thin. First outline of the numbers of Eagles white jerseys is charcoal, which should be much darker than the silver it appears that you used here.Also, are you using some kind of standard block for the block number teams? I think their true block styles are slightly different than the block you’re using – the angles on the corners don’t start as low / inside as yours (there’s more straight horizontal and vertical, and shorter diagonal in real life.) 4 0 3,260 Share this post Share on other sites Link to post This topic is now closed to further replies. 8,082 posts 4 3,260 376 8,082 posts Link to post Sec19Row53 SportsLogos.Net Share this post vicfurth 18,003 Sec19Row53 Forums Home Members Members Share on other sites Posted November 28, 2012 vicfurth Blake!
