By Dialogo April 23, 2010 They are friends on the sidelines, but foes the instant they step directly in front of each other only 10-15 feet apart, staring eye to eye. Under the watchful eyes of an FBI agent instructor and fellow students, they receive the command to draw their weapons and point their muzzles at the person that only a few moments ago was sitting next to them in the classroom. During the multinational exercise Tradewinds 2010 in Belize, the FBI is adding to the 6,000 international law enforcement officers they train annually around the world. Tradewinds is a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored annual exercise conducted in the region designed to improve responses to regional security threats. This year’s joint, combined interagency exercise is being held in Belize and Jamaica April 12 – 26. The exercise includes more than 400 military and security personnel from 15 Caribbean Basin nations, the United Kingdom and the United States. Price Barracks is one of a multitude of training sites the FBI visits across the globe furthering relationships with Caribbean Basin partner nation security forces, explained Michael Parmigiani, a supervisory special agent with the FBI. “We elevate their heart rate and put them under realistic pressure in the simulations so they can take the lessons learned to the street,” said Sam Mullins, a supervisory special agent with the FBI’s international training and assistance unit. With simulation rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber, the students have less than a second to react and shoot the enemy — or be eliminated themselves. “In my head, over and over, I’m planning what I’m going to do once I draw that weapon,” said Marine Cpl. James Medley, a military policeman, Military Police Company A from Lexington, KY. “It’s mostly instinct once it actually happens, but I’m just hoping I don’t get shot.” Two Marines, alongside soldiers from 15 Caribbean partner nations had the chance to receive training from multiple, experienced FBI agents during Tradewinds. The agents, who specialize in various fields, bring decades of real-life experience to students who are participating in mock-drills using sim rounds.
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York education officials are set to begin outlining what needs to be done to reopen schools. The state Education Department is scheduled to present a framework for reopening guidance Monday to the Board of Regents, with the full guidance to come later. With coronavirus cases on the rise in much of the country, districts elsewhere have announced plans for distance learning or a blend of remote and in-person classes. New York officials Sunday announced five new coronavirus deaths, matching an all-time low number for the state. But Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged people to remain vigilant with mask wearing and social distancing. He says officials are monitoring an uptick in Rensselaer County
Connie LawsonIndianapolis, In. — Secretary of State Connie Lawson announced today that some Indiana businesses have received a deceptive letter that may appear to come from the office’s Business Services Division. The letter is attempting to solicit Indiana business owners. It is not from the Secretary of State’s office.The letter informs the business that Indiana law requires a business entity report to be filed every two years and if it is not filed there may be penalties. In the middle of the page, it says the letter is from a private business that will assist in filing your business entity report for you. It is legal for businesses to make this offering, but many business owners think complying with the letter is mandatory.Secretary Lawson is concerned businesses may be confused by the letter and may believe responding to it substitutes the need for filing a business entity report, which is required by state law. Businesses operating in Indiana can securely file their business entity report online at INBiz.in.gov. There is a $10 charge for non-profits to file on INBiz and a $20 charge for for-profits. The deceptive letter charges $107 to file the report for you.Businesses wishing to check the validity of any mailing from the Indiana Secretary of State should contact the INBiz help desk at [email protected] or (317) 234-9768.More information about the letter and a sample is here.
UW senior tailback Montee Ball played like a man on fire in his final home game at Camp Randall, rushing for 191 yards and a touchdown on 39 carries.[/media-credit]When Montee Ball took the ball at the 7-yard line, he cut left, leapt into the air and landed on his left foot before flopping into the Camp Randall end zone. The perfect Senior Day tale, the one where he would tie and then break the all-time NCAA touchdown record, seemed to be falling perfectly into place.But that tale quickly turned sour when Ball dove over a goal line pile-up with his arms fully extended, as Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier jarred the ball loose. The Buckeyes recovered the fumble at the 6-yard line and that second quarter score would be his lone touchdown of the game as Wisconsin (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) fell to Ohio State (11-0, 7-0) in a 21-14 overtime loss Saturday. “Stupid play. Stupid decision,” Ball said of the play. “I just feel like I had to do something in that situation because they submarined our linemen, [the defensive line] kind of dove to the ground and it was clogged up.”A demoralized Ball returned to the sideline feeling as if he had cost the team not only the game-tying score, but a shot at handing the undefeated Buckeyes their first loss of the season.“He was pretty upset,” junior running back James White said. “Anybody in that position probably would be, so I just went over there, talked to him, was like, ‘Keep your head up, the game’s not over with, we have enough time to come back and win this.’”White’s words of encouragement held true less than three minutes of gametime later.A well-executed two-minute drill from UW quarterback Curt Phillips gave Ball another shot at career touchdown No. 79 – the record-breaker – but Ball’s two carries amounted to only four yards in Wisconsin’s only drive of extra period.“Extremely bittersweet,” Ball said postgame. “It would have been perfect for us to win with a touchdown in overtime and to break the record, but Ohio State played well and they deserve it.”The senior tailback finished the day with 191 yards on 39 carries, pushing and pounding his way to an average of 4.9 yards per carry. Redshirt senior center Travis Frederick described Ball’s physical style as “running as hard as I’ve ever seen him run today.”But after that fourth quarter mistake, it was difficult to recall the momentum-inducing excitement of the running back’s 78th career touchdown.As Ball climbed back to his feet after crossing the goal line, the neighboring student section erupting in cheers, he took a moment to soak in the situation before jogging to the sideline with the historic ball placed firmly in his right hand.The next stop was the bench, where he thanked the offensive linemen who paved the way for the impressive touchdown total that tied the NCAA career record.“It was just like, ‘Let’s keep going, let’s get the next one,’” Frederick said of Ball’s message to the offensive line after the touchdown. “You guys are doing great up there, and keep going.”Although his parents joined him on the field pregame and created what he described as the “ideal picture” for breaking the record earlier this week, the game did not pull together in picture-framed fashion for the senior tailback.But as it became increasingly apparent that the stars were not aligning for the senior’s big day and that he could not yet add his name to the NCAA record books, UW head coach Bret Bielema could not contain his emotion after the loss.“Seniors, those guys mean the world for me. I know Montee’s hurting, I know he wanted that [record],” Bielema said, his voice cracking as tears welled up in his eyes. “He was like a man possessed there in the second quarter, fun to watch. But the good news is it will make everybody stronger, just sucks to go through.”Picking up 41 yards in the first quarter, Ball’s day got off to a convincing start. In the second quarter on the drive that ended with his only touchdown, the senior tailback received the ball on four straight plays and rushed for 38 yards.Ball admitted that a swirl of frustration and disappointment ate at him in the locker room postgame. But looking surprisingly composed as a swarm of reporters gathered around him following the defeat, he twirled a certain football emblazoned with a red Motion ‘W’ in his hands. It was the record-tying football, a piece of history he said he still planned to hand over to his parents.Even after the difficult loss that made it impossible for the Badgers to officially win the Leaders Division crown, he acknowledged the magnitude of the moment when he tied former Miami (OH) running back Travis Prentice’s record.“It’s memorable,” he said. “It’s something that I’m going to look back on, cherish it for the rest of my life, so I just wanted to make sure to soak it all in.”Follow Ian on Twitter

The Aussie wicketkeeper was at his witty best at the press conference following an innings and five runs victory over Pakistan in the first Test at Brisbane.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesThe Woolloongabba Stadium or better known as the Gabba in Brisbane has been the venue for the first match of the Australian summer since a long period, but last year the series against India kicked-off at Adelaide and the Gabba did not feature at all in the entire series.“We’ll certainly try and we’ll have to run that by Virat,” Paine joked.“That’s (Gabba) where we like to start our summer and it has been for a long, long time except for last summer. As I said, we’ll ask Virat and see if we can get his permission to play here and maybe even get a pink-ball Test if he’s in a good mood,” he added.Prior to their historic day-night Test against Bangladesh, Virat Kohli claimed that he was open to playing a pink-ball Test in Australia as long as the team could get a day-night practice match at the venue.Read Also:Shane Warne bats for D/N Adelaide test when India tour Australia in 2020Virat Kohli ready to play pink ball cricket in Australia – provided there is a practice match beforehand!
