Video : Watch Oprah Winfrey Intense Lance Armstrong Interview

first_imgOprah Winfrey said today that disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong came well prepared for their highly anticipated interview, although he “did not come clean in the manner [she] expected.”Winfrey, who discussed the interview on “CBS This Morning” today, said, “We were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. I feel that he answered the questions in a way that he was ready. … He certainly had prepared himself for this moment. … He brought it. He really did.”Armstrong had apologized to staffers at the Livestrong Foundation before the Monday interview with Winfrey at a hotel in Austin, Texas, and reportedly admitted to them that he used performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied career.Armstrong also confessed to Winfrey to using the drugs, sources have told ABC News. Winfrey said this morning that the entire interview, for which she had prepared 112 questions, was difficult.“I would say there were a couple of times where he was emotional,” she said. “But that doesn’t describe the intensity at times.”As for the cyclist’s sense of remorse, Winfrey said that will be for viewers to decide. “I would rather people make their own decisions about whether he was contrite or not,” she said. The interview will air on the OWN network for two nights, starting at 9 p.m. ET Thursday and continuing Friday.Meanwhile, the federal government is likely to join a whistle-blower lawsuit against Armstrong, originally filed by his former cycling teammate Floyd Landis, sources told ABC News.The government is seeking to recoup millions of dollars from Armstrong after years of his denying that he used performance-enhancing drugs, the sources said. The U.S. Postal Service, which is an independent agency of the federal government, was a longtime sponsor of Armstrong’s racing career. cyclist Lance Armstrong Apologizes to Livestrong Staff for Doping Scandal Watch VideoLance Armstrong Stripped of Tour de France Titles Watch VideoThe deadline for the government’s potentially joining in the matter was a likely motivation for Armstrong’s interview with Winfrey, sources told ABC News. The lawsuit remains sealed in federal court.Armstrong is now talking with authorities about possibly paying back some of the Postal Service sponsorship money, a government source told ABC News Monday.The deadline for the department to join the case is Thursday, the same day Armstrong’s much-anticipated interview with Winfrey is set to air.Armstrong is also talking to authorities about confessing and naming names, giving up others involved in illegal doping. This could result in a reduction of his lifetime ban, according to a source, if Armstrong provides substantial and meaningful information.As for the Winfrey interview, it was Armstrong’s first since officials stripped him of his world cycling titles in response to doping allegations. Word of Armstrong’s admission comes after a Livestrong official said that Armstrong apologized Monday to the foundation’s staff ahead of his interview.The disgraced cyclist gathered with about 100 Livestrong Foundation staffers at their Austin headquarters for a meeting that included social workers who deal directly with patients as part of the group’s mission to support cancer victims.Armstrong’s “sincere and heartfelt apology” generated lots of tears, spokeswoman Katherine McLane said, adding that he “took responsibility” for the trouble he has caused the foundation.McLane declined to say whether Armstrong’s comments included an admission of doping, just that the cyclist wanted the staff to hear from him in person rather than rely on second-hand accounts.Armstrong then took questions from the staff. Armstrong’s story has never changed. In front of cameras, microphones, fans, sponsors, cancer survivors — even under oath — Lance Armstrong hasn’t just denied ever using performance enhancing drugs, he has done so in an indignant, even threatening way.Armstrong, 41, was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from the sport for life by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in October 2012, after allegations that he benefited from years of systematic doping, using banned substances and receiving illicit blood transfusions.“Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling and he deserves to be forgotten in cycling,” Pat McQuaid, the president of the International Cycling Union, said at a news conference in Switzerland announcing the decision. “This is a landmark day for cycling.”The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a200-page report Oct. 10 after a wide-scale investigation into Armstrong’s alleged use of performance-enhancing substances.Armstrong won the Tour de France from 1999 to 2005. According to a source, speaking to ABC News, a representative of Armstrong’s once offered to make a donation estimated around $250,000 to the agency, as “60 Minutes Sports” on Showtime first reported.Lance Armstrong’s attorney Tim Herman denied it. “No truth to that story,” Herman said. “First Lance heard of it was today [Monday]. He never made any such contribution or suggestion.” Armstrong, who himself recovered from testicular cancer, created the Lance Armstrong Foundation (now known as the LIVESTRONG Foundation) to help people with cancer cope, as well as foster a community for cancer awareness. Armstrong resigned late last year as chairman of the LIVESTRONG Foundation, which raised millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a200-page report Oct. 10 after a wide-scale investigation into Armstrong’s alleged use of performance-enhancing substances.Armstrong won the Tour de France from 1999 to 2005.According to a source, speaking to ABC News, a representative of Armstrong’s once offered to make a donation estimated around $250,000 to the agency, as “60 Minutes Sports” on Showtime first reported.

The Times’ unnamed sources said he would admit the information in order to restore his eligibility in athletic events such as triathlons and running events.Herman denied the claims were true.Herman told The Associated Press he had no knowledge of Armstrong considering a confession and said: “When, and if, Lance has something to say, there won’t be any secret about it.”Armstrong, who has spent so much energy bitterly fighting accusers and whistleblowers, has left many questioning whether Winfrey’s televised absolution will be able to help his cause.Winfrey tweeted the news to her followers last Tuesday night. “BREAKING NEWS: Looking forward to this conversation with @lancearmstrong #nextchapter.”last_img read more

Kevin Pietersen reveals the bowling GOAT of IPL!

first_imgAdvertisement di5pz3NBA Finals | Brooklyn VsscfdWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ea7a( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) zbnmWould you ever consider trying this?😱nhllCan your students do this? 🌚8jinRoller skating! Powered by Firework England star and former RCB batter Kevin Pietersen has named Lasith Malinga as the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time) bowler in IPL history. In a contest arranged by a national sports channel, the Mumbai Indians speedster was declared the best against the likes of other IPL greats such as Ashish Nehra, Dale Steyn, Jasprit Bumrah and Sunil Narine.Advertisement Playing for the Indians since 2008, the Sri Lankan pacer is the tournament’s highest wicket-taker with 170 scalps in as many as 122 games. Nicknamed the ‘Malinga Slinga’, the 31-year-old altered the definition of a T20 bowler from day one; in a game, which is exclusively a batsman’s favourite format.Advertisement “I’m going with Lasith. You look at the numbers he has served up and the way he has consistently used that yorker, that makes everyone talk about it. Malinga is my guy. I would go with Narine, but he has bowled on wickets which helped turn. Also, he has been questioned on a few occasions for this suspect bowling action, so I am afraid to say that I am going with Malinga.” Pietersen announced.While fitness has been a serious concern for him, Malinga on his day is the most lethal pacer in the world with his toe-crushing and pinpoint yorkers. In fact, last year, Mumbai Indians clinched their 4th IPL title in the penultimate over through some ecstatic death bowling by the Lanka skipper. Therefore, it was no brainer for the judges to choose the GOAT bowler of the tournament’s 12-years history.Advertisement The first Sri Lankan to claim four wickets in four deliveries in the 2007 Cricket World Cup, Malinga, easily beat the likes of Ashish Nehra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dale Steyn, Amit Mishra, Imran Tahir, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravichandran Ashwin, Sunil Narine and Yuzvendra Chahal, the other nominees for the title.Besides Pietersen’s vote, Malinga also got the nod from several other cricket pundits like, Dean Jones, Mathew Hayden, Aakash Chopra, Graeme Smith, Simon Doull, Ian Bishop and Tom Moody. You may also like:There’s more than one: Sri Lanka unearths another Slinga, picks 6 wickets on debutGautam Gambhir reveals which player would have landed KKR more IPL titles!

First of Fort Hancock Buildings Are Leased By Private Owners

first_imgBy Liz SheehanSANDY HOOK- After attempts reaching back to 1999, The National Park Service (NPS) announced on May 9 that it has finally issued the first lease on a building in Officers Row in historic Fort Hancock.The lease was issued to Brian Samuelson and Joseph Dorsey.Daphne Yun, acting public affairs officer, said the details of the 60-year lease were not available.Samuelson, of Atlantic Highlands, said that work was being done on the two-family house, known as building 21, which faces Sandy Hook Bay. The goal is to get one section, which has three bedrooms, ready for occupancy this summer.Samuelson said Tuesday that the building would be rented out for monthly or seasonal use, or for holiday vacations, such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. This is consistent with his application, which said the house would be used as “a family residence in the off-season and a weekly, monthly or seasonal rental during the summer months.”Samuelson, an airplane pilot, said that “everything is up in the air,” when asked if he would be using the house as a residence.The application also said that Samuelson was interested in rehabilitating “between one and five” other buildings on Officers Row.When asked if he would be doing other renovations of buildings at the fort, he replied that he would handle “one crisis at a time,” but “I’m keeping an open mind.”The announcement from the park service of the lease quoted Samuelson and Dorsey as saying, “We hope to eventually make accommodations for the general public for summer rentals” which plan to advertise with a website.The park service’s first attempt to lease the buildings was in 1999, when a 60-year lease was given to Rumson developer James Wassel to renovate and commercially develop more than 36 buildings at the fort. The park service said it did not have the funds to restore the buildings covered in the lease. The proposal was met by strong opposition from local residents who formed Save Sandy Hook, a grassroots organization, to oppose the plan.The Wassell lease was cancelled in 2009, when the developer, after a series of extensions, was not able to show he had the financial means to rehabilitate the buildings.In 2012, a notice was put in the Federal Register that an advisory committee would be appointed by the Secretary of the Interior with White House Approval to form plans for Ft. Hancock’s future. The committee, named the Fort Hancock 21st Century Committee, has 23 members, including local elected officials.The interior of the building. Photo: Liz SheehanLast December, a spokesperson for the park service said it was in negotiations with potential lessees for three of the fort buildings.According to the park service website, those leasing the buildings have to pay to renovate the structures, following the standards of historic preservation properties. The proposed rent would be offset by the cost of renovation.The terms of the lease would be based on fair market value, John Warren, External Affairs Officer at the NPS, said.According to the NPS the Fort Hancock has been a major factor in the defense of the New York harbor since colonial days. It served as a proving ground and was renamed in 1895 and deactivated in 1974.last_img read more

Kootenay Mountaineering Club celebrates 50th anniversary

first_img 2) Serve as a nucleus for people interested in mountaineering and wishing to associate with others of like interests, and The KMC also manages and maintains the four huts on the famous Bonnington Traverse.Highlights of the KMC’s year are the three-one week hiking camp sessions and the Kokanee Glacier ski week. Both are so much in demand that the club holds lotteries to select the participants.The club’s semi-annual socials are always popular for meeting friends and viewing members’ slide shows of some of their more exotic or adventurous trips.Some things have changed in 50 years. While the KMC frowns on motorized, off-road back country recreation, the back country is becoming increasingly crowded with quads, snow mobiles and commercial cat- and heli-skiing operations.The club doesn’t instruct technical climbing anymore, now relying on certified instructors to provide its members more advanced training.When the KMC isn’t in the back country having fun, some challenges of a different nature are taken on. In the early years, the club lobbied successfully for preservation of Kokanee Glacier Park and the formation of the Valhalla Provincial Park and the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy.Today, the KMC is actively trying to keep the Jumbo Valley ‘wild’ and is rallying opposition to the resort’s development.Another concern is that, while access to the back country is better than it was in the 60’s thanks to logging roads, today many of the forestry roads are being decommissioned and some of the favorite hiking and climbing destinations are once again becoming difficult to impossible to access.On (Saturday) June 7 the KMC will celebrate its 50th anniversary and host the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC’s AGM in Castlegar.The club is partnering with the FMCBC to fill the 200+ seats in the Old Castlegar Theatre to hear guest speaker, Dave Quinn, the ‘Outdoor Guy’ on CBC Radio West, talk that evening about conservation issues and his adventures in the Kootenays.The KMC looks forward to meeting the FMCBC Directors representing 31 outdoor clubs from around the province and sharing concerns, solutions and inspirations.Check outKMC at:    http://www.kootenaymountaineering.bc.ca 3) Maintain records of pertinent information on trips in the Kootenay area.The club still does all of this, but 50 years ago the logging industry had not cut many roads into the mountains and access to some of the most beautiful Kootenay country was difficult.The early years of the club saw much effort directed into cutting a trail into Mulvey Basin in the Valhallas from where, if not a first summit, then second or third ascents could be launched.Many trails were cut in the KMC’s early years and first ascents were made throughout the Kootenays by KMC members. Weekly rock climbing classes were conducted and early records abound with accounts of very technical climbs. Ski touring and hiking in Kokanee Glacier Park was and still is popular.The old Slocan Chief cabin, built in 1896 to service mining operations in the Kokanee Glacier area, hosted many KMC winter and summer outings.The cabin still exists but today it houses historical information displays and the luxurious Kokanee Glacier Lodge has become the main destination for overnight trips since it was built 10 years ago.center_img The Kootenay Mountaineering Club celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014.The KMC existed as a section of the Alpine Club of Canada for its first five years, but went its own way when it could not or would not persuade sufficient numbers to sign up with the ACC.Today, the KMC numbers over 300 members and schedules more than 100 outdoor trips and activities every year. Its membership resides primarily in the West Kootenays with most members residing within the Rossland-Trail-Castlegar-Nelson corridor.Fifty years ago the KMC’s constitution stated the objectives of the club were to: 1)  Maintain a program of climbs during the summer season and ski touring trips in the winter and spring,last_img read more

Dan Uetrecht, Nov. 26

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We finished up last Thursday, Nov. 8 with the double-crops. Even an old timer told me that there are more beans still out after Thanksgiving than he can ever remember. It has been frustrating for a good year to be such a struggle at the end. I saw a couple guys running on Thanksgiving Day. There has been progress around here, but I feel for some of these guys.The weather has been some of the worst for late fall I can ever remember. There are probably more beans out down here than corn. The little corn that is still out is because it is down. Especially with the quality issues, guys are really pushing to get after it, but there just haven’t been good days to run. Even with a freeze, the beans are going to be so wet and they will still have to figure out a way to dry them.We have had a little ponding in the wheat but the water has gotten away. The wheat is still looking really good and I think it is going into winter really healthy.With the stuff we got off early, we were right behind the combine planting cover crops. We have some rye and crimson clover growing. In some of the later stuff we got off, we were never able to get those cover crops planted, so we still have some seed in the mini bulk bags to use after the wheat crop comes off next year.I am moving some grain out. I set the basis on a contract for some corn and we are going to move some the second half of December. I am concerned with quality issues and I want to get these bins cored. I want to be proactive in moving some grain.last_img read more
