Notre Dame Champion Bill Whiteside Sees a New England Win in Super Bowl 51

first_imgBill Whiteside Played on the Notre Dame National Championship Team of 1949. By Tim KellyBill Whiteside knows a thing or two about championship caliber football.The Ocean City resident was a member of Notre Dame’s undefeated and untied 1949 national championship team, as well as the 1948 team that went 9-0-1 (Michigan edged out the Fighting Irish for the championship that year).At the time Whiteside was at South Bend, pro football was still in its formative years and college ball was king. Under legendary coach Frank Leahy, Notre Dame was in the midst of its greatest run of success, going 36-0-2 in four years and winning three national titles during that span.  The 1949 squad is regarded as one of the greatest college teams of all time.Whiteside, a 5-10, 172-pounder from LaSalle High in Philadelphia, saw action at quarterback, halfback and defensive back during his Notre Dame career.Bill shared his views on today’s Super Bowl 51 matchup with OCNJDaily, and like many fans who snoozed through more than a few Super mismatches; he is mostly rooting for a good game.“I don’t care who wins,” the longtime Eagles fan said. “I want to see a good game and I think we will.”Bill feels the Atlanta Falcons have a great chance to pull off the upset and have been largely underrated by the pundits.“They have a good group,” Whiteside said. “They have a terrific quarterback (Matt Ryan), the kid from (Philadelphia’s) Penn Charter. I really like him. And Julio Jones is just an outstanding player. Their running back (Devonta Freeman) is really good, too. They have a nice, balanced offense.  But people have really overlooked their defense.  Nobody expected them to (shut down) Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers the way they did.”If the Falcons pull off another upset, it wouldn’t surprise Whiteside.But on the other hand, he said, the Patriots are still the Patriots.“As much as you have to respect Atlanta, my thinking keeps coming back to New England. I mean, these guys just seem to find a way to win. Heck, they have taken Eagles castoffs who are being really productive for them,” he said in reference to cornerback Eric Rowe, who surrendered just two completions in nine targets in the AFC championship game, and who made a key interception on a Ben Roethlisberger pass late in the game.“It’s coaching,” Whiteside said, “but it’s also the players buying in.”And then of course, there is Tom Brady. “Nobody is better than Brady,” Whiteside said, “but they have a backup in Jimmy Garoppolo who would start for most NFL teams.”  Garoppolo filled in admirably during Brady’s “deflategate” suspension, going 2-0 with zero interceptions before being sidelined with a shoulder injury against Miami.OK, put Whiteside’s feet to the fire and does he think the Falcons win their first-ever Lombardi? Or will Brady get a ring for his thumb?“New England!” Whiteside said with emphasis. “It’s just too hard to go against them.”last_img read more

Press release: Minister for Europe statement on election of new Armenian Prime Minister

first_img Follow Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan on Twitter @AlanDuncanMP and Facebook Follow the Foreign Office on Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn Minister for Europe, Sir Alan Duncan said: Media enquiries I am pleased that a solution to the political situation in Armenia has been found, via negotiation and through the Parliament, and congratulate Nikol Pashinyan on his election as Armenia’s new Prime Minister. It is to the credit of all involved that events over the last three weeks have unfolded peacefully and largely without incident. It is important that the restraint and statesmanship shown by all parties continues and that the political process moves forward, based on solid constitutional and legal foundations. In my two visits to Armenia in the last 12 months, I have seen first-hand the country’s rich history, and its huge potential. I was particularly impressed by the many young people I met, who are determined to build a bright future for Armenia. The UK, as a longstanding friend of Armenia, stands ready to support its efforts to strengthen its democracy, deliver good governance, and improve economic opportunities for all.

From Your Mouth to a Thousand Ears, New Apps Make Mobile Podcasting Easy

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Features#mobile#Product Reviews#Publishing Services#web Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Imagine if Tom Paine, or Benjamin Franklin, or Emma Goldman had the power to cast their passing thoughts, while walking down the street, to thousands or millions of people all around the world, with ease, in minutes. They would expel the building material of a mason, wouldn’t they?That power is now in all of our hands, thanks to a new class of mobile applications that’s maturing very quickly. Mobile podcasting apps are now powerful, easy to use, free and tied to big social networks for distribution. The latest to hit the scene is Cinch, from BlogTalk Radio, which landed in the Android marketplace this morning after several months on the iPhone. Cinch is a relatively simple app, and it has its technical issues on occasion, but it’s absolutely revolutionary and so far could be the best in its class. Users launch the app, hit record, speak into their phone, press stop, give their recording a title, aim it at their Twitter or Facebook friends, and then hit publish. Within minutes the recording is uploaded to the Cinch servers and a link to listen is pushed out to the designated social networks.I’ve been using Cinch on the iPhone for months now, to record my thoughts about art and the internet, about writing, or the soundscape from the train station in my home town. I marvel, every time, at the fact that I can publish my thoughts so effortlessly in audio out to the world now, from wherever I am. Just like blogging made text publishing and distribution more accessible and democratic than it had ever been before in human history, mobile audio publishing apps like this are truly world changing. The availability of Cinch on Android is an important event.Cinch isn’t the only mobile podcasting app available for today’s smartphones. AudioBoo is another one that you might enjoy on the iPhone. It’s far more attractive visually, has more features, more users and appears to have fewer bugs. It has a 5 minute time limit on audio recording, though. That’s very inconvenient, as the timer is usually out of sight up against my ear. I also regularly have 6 or 7 minute long thoughts. I haven’t hit the time limit on Cinch yet. Social media apps come and social media apps go, more launch every day than anyone can keep track of, but some of them are worth taking pause and considering the implications of. The power of instant, mobile, global audio publishing in your pocket, for free? That really means something.
