Ezekiel Elliott Plans On “Salmoning” President Obama Today

first_imgezekiel elliott smiles after winning the national championship.ohio state ezekiel elliottThe national champion Ohio State Buckeyes are in Washington D.C. Monday morning, and in just a few hours, they’ll make their way to the White House to officially be congratulated by President Barack Obama on winning the inaugural College Football Playoff. The leader of the free world may, however, want to make sure he has an extra body guard on staff before they arrive.OSU running back Ezekiel Elliott and his teammates enjoy trolling people when they’re live on television, using a move called “salmoning.” Basically, the way we understand it, the perpetrator moves his hand back and forth to mimic a salmon swimming, before poking or tickling the subject right at the end. Elliott, on Twitter, suggested that he’s planning on figuring out a way to do it to Obama this [email protected] thanks Jacoby. You are greatly appreciated. Now we need to plan the salmoning of the president @BarackObama— EzekielElliott#⃣1⃣5⃣ (@EzekielElliott) April 20, 2015If @EzekielElliott doesn’t salmon @BarackObama today, was the trip to the White House even worth it?— Jillian Yuricich (@Jill_Yuricich) April 20, 2015Here’s video of Elliott doing it to the president of the Sugar Bowl live on television.We hope he pulls it off, and somehow isn’t attacked in the process.last_img read more

Film Industry Humor Top Ten Things To Do On Set When Youre

first_img5. Freestyle Yoga. Yes it will look weird to the other people in holding but it’s good to stay active especially when there’s a catered buffet meal being served after 6 hours. Stay limber, try the flank steak! 2. Tinder. Yes, you might as well start the search for Mrs. Right! Who knows she may even be in here today. Just set the distance parameters to 1km and swipe away. Cheryl, 32, loves to bake and adores horses. Drinks wine like a fish and owns a cottage. What’re the odds! A match made in holding! She could be three tables over eating flank steak and studying for her real estate license.  10. Call Rogers. Those bastards are overcharging you anyways. Call and complain. When you get on the line with an agent just say ‘retention’ and threaten to go to Bell! You’re welcome! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment 8. Stock up. Tea. Stir sticks. Napkins. Oranges. Etc. I haven’t bought napkins in 11 years. Everyday take a small stack and start stockpiling in case shit goes south and you need to fill your nuclear bunker. Sip tea casually watching Friends reruns as the world burns. Advertisement 3. Write a novel. Call it: The Confused Ramblings Of No One In Particular! Try to shed some insight to laypeople about the goings on behind the scenes on film sets. The seedy underbelly of the industry where Stand Ins throw each other under the bus for a shot at the new series. Where DOPs and directors argue over minutiae. Where extras sneak off at lunch to auditions. Where the grips tell each other of their Tinder conquests!!! 7. Craigslist. Comb this site for random jobs to supplement your income. Sign up for that focus group on Tide Pods or help that old lady with yard work for 17$ per hour cash! You’re not gonna be on set on Saturday anyways. Get that money! Login/Register With: Twittercenter_img 6. Practice. Get the sides from the set box when no one is looking and run lines with that apprentice sitting next you. Hone your craft. Keep your knife sharp. You never know when the director is going to ask you to say, “No sir!” When the lead character asks you if the Chief Johnson is in his office (assuming you’re on a cop show in a precinct) Top Ten Things To Do On Set When You’re Bored: 1. Social Media. Facebook bud. Check this app every 45 seconds to avoid making eye contact or communicating with real people. Join Alien Conspiracy groups and post photos of the flank steak with #foodporn. You might as well hit Insta as well. Tweet that you just got booked on a sci-fi tv show as SWAT for tomorrow and it’s SSE. Snapchat a pic of you and Cheryl hitting it off. The possibilities are endless!!!#setlife #actorslife #freeoranges.SPECIAL THANKS TO NATHAN HOPPE FOR TODAY’S SMILE!  🙂 Advertisement Advertisement Facebook 4. Sell something. Look there’s 300 extras today. Join a MLM and pitch hair products to unassuming non-unions. Better yet, become an accountant and do people’s taxes so you can get that extra money and so they can realize that writing off nights out at the cinema as an actor is considered research and development. 9. Get you’re real estate license. You might as well create an exit strategy. Something to fall back on in case your dreams of becoming a series lead evaporate. You don’t want to banana forever.last_img read more

Ottawa to assess impact of climate change on Nova Scotias land link

first_imgAMHERST, N.S. – Ottawa says it will study ways to protect the 275-year-old dikes that connect Nova Scotia to the rest of Canada from being washed away by rising sea levels, storm surges and other effects of climate change.The $350,000 study will look at how rising water levels could affect key infrastructure in the Chignecto Isthmus trade corridor, including the Trans-Canada Highway, the Canadian National rail line and electricity transmission lines, Nova Scotia MP Bill Casey said in a statement Monday.The study will involve an engineering assessment of existing infrastructure, consultation and options to protect the corridor, which carries an estimated $50 million worth of trade a day between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.“Trade between our two provinces is the lifeline that keeps our economies growing and our goods moving and this is why we must do all we can to protect the Chignecto Isthmus trade corridor from climate change,” Casey, the MP for Cumberland-Colchester, said in a release.The initiative comes amid increasing calls for something to be done to maintain the land link between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia by raising and reinforcing dikes at the narrow isthmus that joins the provinces and allow goods to travel to and from the busy port of Halifax.The dikes in the Tantramar Marshes were built by Acadian settlers for agricultural purposes in the 1700s. The Chignecto Isthmus was cut off for several days in an 1869 storm, according to a 2008 study by Memorial University geologist Norm Catto.The study said the odds of a recurrence would increase as sea levels rise.Last month, the NDP in Nova Scotia said it would introduce a private member’s bill requiring the province’s agriculture minister to take steps to maintain the low-lying area where the Trans-Canada Highway goes over the Tantramar Marshes. The party said the governing Liberals should spend at least $10 million per year on maintaining the dikes in each of the next five years.Last fall, the mayor of Amherst also raised concerns about the condition of the historic Acadian dikes and their ability to hold back rising sea levels occurring due to climate change.Mayor David Kogon has said sea levels are projected to rise in the Bay of Fundy over the next two decades to the point where the Chignecto Isthmus will flood even when there is no storm surge, leaving Nova Scotia cut off.The area where flooding could occur includes 20 kilometres of the Trans-Canada Highway, 20 kilometres of CN Rail, 35 kilometres of electricity lines and 35 kilometres of dikes. The isthmus itself is a narrow, low-lying strip of land that is about 20 kilometres at its narrowest point.At the time, he said he wanted all three levels of government to work together, adding the first step would be an engineering study to determine the scope of the required repairs.The Nova Scotia government has said it is developing new design standards that incorporate sea level rise and storm surge into dike maintenance and construction.The province has also said that in the Amherst area specifically, it has allocated $10 million be spent to replace the Laplanche aboiteau for local farmland.last_img read more

Jackets look to put postseason in the past with rematch against Red

Consider this a midterm week for the Blue Jackets.Columbus (9-5-2) hosts central division rival Detroit (7-5-3) Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Nationwide Arena.After practice Monday, coach Ken Hitchcock spoke with members of the media and said facing the Red Wings will be a good test for the team.“Those guys have targets,” Hitchcock said. “They’re the measuring stick for everybody. Detroit gets everybody’s ‘A’ game early in the season. I hope our team is excited to play them because they gave us a lesson at the end of last year.”In its first playoff appearance in franchise history last season, the Jackets faced Detroit in the first round. Although the Red Wings swept Columbus in four games, the team has added experience in postseason play.“I think the big thing for us is we are finally getting to play some division games,” Hitchcock said. “We are going to get a better read on how good we are in our division.”Columbus has played well at home, going 4-1-2 to begin the 2009-10 campaign.The Jackets began a four-game home swing with a 3-2 victory against Carolina last Saturday. Staying at home means extra practice time for the team and Hitchcock is taking advantage of it.“Not being able to practice has really slowed down our game,” Hitchcock said. “I told the players that this is really it for getting two practice days. We won’t be able to do this for some time after, so these next two days are important for us.”Detroit has been nowhere perfect on the road with a 2-4-2 record to begin the year, but Columbus knows the Red Wings are one of the top franchises in the NHL.“Hopefully we will be on our game and be able to match them for 60 minutes of hockey,” forward Raffi Torres said. “It’s no secret that they don’t like playing us. We are going to have to make sure to get the puck deep in the zone and make it tough for the defense.”Torres has scored big for the Blue Jackets. He has claimed eight goals in 16 games, including four coming off the power play. “I trained hard this summer and got everything back to where it needs to be,” said Torres, who has 87 goals and 68 assists in 374 career NHL games. “I got my confidence up towards the end of last season and I’ve tried to take that momentum into this year.”The Red Wings have three members with double-digit totals in points. Forward Henrik Zetterberg has four goals and nine assists to lead the team with 13 points. Forward Pavel Datsyuk has ten assists with two goals, while forward Tomas Holmstrom leads the team in goals with eight.“They are one of the best teams in the NHL,” Columbus forward Jakub Voracek said. “They’ve made the Stanley Cup Final two years in a row and obviously it’s going to be a tough game. There is going to be a lot of people in the building and we are excited.”As for the Jackets’ defense, the unit has been improving.Key defensemen Mike Commodore and Jan Hejda have been back as regulars in the lineup after suffering injuries in the beginning of the year, and the squad continues to gel together.“We have seven guys here that can play with anyone,” defenseman Kris Russell said. “As a group we feel we are starting to find each other and play well together. It’s nice to get a consistent groove when playing with the same group of guys.”With goaltender Steve Mason playing in form lately, the defense could be the difference in the outcome vs. Detroit. Mason is 7-4-2 with a .891 save percentage in his second season in the league.“He’s playing really well and is confident,” Hitchcock said. “I think the big thing is the puck has not been moving fast for him. He’s in sync with where the puck is on the ice and gets across the net really well now. He’s squared to shooter much better than the start of the year.”In observance of Veterans Day, the matchup vs. the Red Wings will be military appreciation night in tribute to those in the armed forces. read more
