Styles IGN.com is featuring an interview with Chris Jericho to promote his new WWE DVD “The Road is Jericho.” During the interview, Jericho was asked about if Roman Reigns is ready for the main event of Wrestlemania 31 and the recent fan criticism of Reigns.“Look, like I’ve said before, if you’re going to give someone a shot, give them a shot. There’ve been tons of guys who when they’ve been put in the main event at WrestleMania might not have been quote unquote ready. Who’s to say who’s ready and who’s not? Let’s see how the crowd reacts when they get there. But all I know is that Roman Reigns was everybody’s favorite guy until the Royal Rumble. And then everyone turned on Roman Reigns. It’s so funny how two days before, and the year before, everybody loved Roman Reigns. Everybody. All the fans did. And don’t tell me that you didn’t because they were all saying ‘Roman Reigns, Roman Reigns, Roman Reigns …what? Daniel Bryan didn’t win the Royal Rumble? We hate Roman Reigns! Boo!’And meanwhile, ever since then – I mean, we did house shows in Calgary and Edmonton and it was like Beatlemania. They were going nuts for him. And that was a week after the Royal Rumble. So I think that he is ready, as much as anyone can be ready in this day and age. So let’s see how it goes. I mean the match he had with Daniel Bryan at Fastlane was incredible. And you can’t tell me that it was all because of Daniel Bryan. Really? Because I always heard in the business that it takes two. And I think I’ve proven myself to be a fairly decent worker, so if I’m telling you it takes two, I think every fan should shut the hell up and listen to what I’m saying. He did a great job of living up to his end of the bargain and he’ll do the same thing at WrestleMania. They will leave no stone unturned to make that a great match. They will get all the benefits. All the bells and whistles. And as long as they can hold it together, I think it’s going to be great.”IGN.com: CHRIS JERICHO TO ROMAN REIGNS HATERS: SHUT THE HELL UPRecommended videosPowered by AnyClipWWE Still Moving Forward With Crown Jewel Event In Saudi ArabiaVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:34/Current Time 0:02Loaded: 100.00%0:02Remaining Time -0:32 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Drug takeback event gathers 1654 pounds of medications

first_imgMore than 900 Clark County residents handed over 1,600 pounds of unwanted medications to law enforcement and volunteers last weekend.The Saturday drug take-back event offered residents three sites to dispose of prescription and over-the-counter medications. During the four-hour event, 921 people discarded 1,654 pounds of medicines.The busiest drop site was the Kaiser Permanente Cascade Park medical office, where 423 people disposed of 823 pounds of pills. The other two sites were PeaceHealth Memorial Health Center in Vancouver and the Battle Ground Police Department.All pills were separated from plastic containers. The pills will be incinerated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Kaiser is recycling plastic pill bottles.Unused medications left in the home increase the opportunity for drug abuse, according to a news release from Clark County Public Health.More than half of people 12 years or older who used pain relievers for nonmedical reasons report getting the drug from a friend or relative. Reducing access could lead to lower overdose death rates, which have increased nearly 140 percent since 2000, according to public health.Unwanted medications can be disposed of year-round at several collection sites across Clark County. Controlled substances, such as tranquilizers and painkillers, can be taken to participating law enforcement agencies. Noncontrolled substances, such as over-the-counter medicines, can be taken to participating pharmacies.For more information about both types of disposal, visit www.recyclinga-z.com and search “medications.”Unused medications should never be flushed down the toilet or dumped down the drain because they can contaminate wastewater systems, according to public health officials.The take-back event was a community partnership between law enforcement, medical providers, substance abuse prevention groups and local schools.last_img read more

Washington political hopeful to host shooting campaign event

first_imgSPOKANE — An eastern Washington congressional candidate is inviting voters to a “shooting with the candidate” campaign event.KREM reports that Republican Jered Gavin Bonneau plans to host the event in April after announcing it last month with a Tweet saying “We will be having some good ol’ American fun, shooting, talking of freedom and getting to know each other.”He also used hashtags linking to the National Rifle Association and “Make America Great Again,” President Donald Trump’s campaign rallying cry.Bonneau said he was inspired to host the shooting event because he enjoys shooting his firearms and thought: “What a great way to have a blast and meet people.”The 31-year-old from Spokane is running against incumbent Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers in the Republican primary for Washington’s 5th district seat.last_img read more

CTran union agree on contract

first_imgAfter nearly 10 months without a labor agreement, C-Tran and the Amalgamated Transit Union 757 have agreed to a new 4-year contract.“We’re really pleased,” said Andrew Riley, communications coordinator for the union. “This is probably the best contract our operators at C-Tran have ever seen.”The C-Tran Board of Directors unanimously approved the contract Tuesday night during its regular meeting.C-Tran officials say the 10-month delay was caused by changes in C-Tran leadership in the past year and union leadership’s busy schedules with the nearly 20 other transit organizations it serves.“This process may have taken longer than in years past, but the end result is a solid agreement that both sides can take pride in,” said C-Tran spokeswoman Christine Selk.Riley said the workforce had a 70 percent voter turnout, with 85 percent of them voting in favor.The contract for fixed route and paratransit operators is retroactively effective beginning Jan. 1, 2018, through Dec. 31, 2021. Under the agreement, wages will increase between 2.75 and 3.25 percent each year.“It’s going to keep pace with inflation,” Riley said. “That’s the gold standard we need to be trying to go for.”He added that paratransit operators are going to earn nearly as much as the higher-paid fixed-route service drivers, which is rare in the transit world.last_img read more

States day care rule changes may not be kids stuff

first_imgWhen Helene Padget watched the four children playing in her bonus room, she wondered how much longer she could make a living in child care. The Vancouver woman has run the business out of her home in the Sunnyside neighborhood for nearly 40 years, and said she has typically kept rates below the market.“I haven’t raised my rates in 15 years, and I think I could be well under what I should be charging,” she said.She may not have an option soon. New state rules aim to streamline Washington’s diverse market of child care, putting a greater emphasis on certification and the safety of the facilities themselves. While in-home care providers agree child safety is paramount, they also say they will incur higher costs to stay compliant.Karen Hart, president of the Family Child Care Providers union, said she worried the moves are putting child care providers in a box, preventing them from having the flexibility to meet individual children’s needs.“Family home providers feel the state is trying to fit a one-sized-fits-all system,” she said. “Parents aren’t looking for one-sized-fits-all. Kids need different styles and curriculum.”The state, on the other hand, says that setting more uniform standards should make it easier for public and private initiatives to give more funding to child care operations.last_img read more

Washington teacher strikes escalate with arbitrator request

first_imgTACOMA — Two school districts in Washington have escalated their fight with teacher unions by calling for the intervention of a state arbitrator in contract talks.District leaders in Tacoma and Battle Ground are seeking the intervention through the rarely used Public Employment Relations Commission, though any pay recommendations that might result would not be binding.Bargaining units at most of the state’s 295 school systems have sought to renegotiate salaries this year after the state infused $1 billion for teacher pay to resolve a long-running court battle that determined the state was inadequately funding public education.Tacoma Public Schools has said it has been treated unfairly in the state’s new funding formula and doesn’t have a windfall of cash to give away like some other districts.The Tacoma district said it hopes an independent third-party can confirm its financial condition so contract talks with teachers can move forward.Union leaders have decried the district’s move as a “novel way” to avoid good-faith bargaining by using an arbitrator to prolong the process that could keep teachers and students out of school.last_img read more

Survey Businesses add jobs at slowest pace in 18 months

first_imgWASHINGTON — Companies added the fewest jobs in 18 months in March, a private survey found, suggesting employers may have grown more cautious as signs of slower economic growth have emerged.Payroll processor ADP said Wednesday that businesses added 129,000 jobs last month, down from the previous month’s gain of 197,000. Still, the job gains in March are enough to slightly lower the unemployment rate over time.All the job gains were in service sectors, such as education and health care, which added a combined total of 56,000. Professional and business services, which include engineering, accounting, and other higher-paid work, added 41,000.Manufacturing and construction firms both cut jobs last month.Small businesses added just 6,000 jobs, far below the hiring by large and medium-sized businesses. Smaller companies typically struggle to compete in hiring with bigger businesses when fewer workers are available. Bigger companies can often provide higher pay or greater benefits.ADP’s report does not include government employees and frequently diverges from the official figures. The government’s jobs report, due Friday, is expected to show that employers added 170,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate remained 3.8%.last_img read more

Arsenal became stagnated under Wenger – Aubameyang

first_imgArsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes that the club had become “stagnated” under Arsene Wenger and has welcomed the arrival of Unai EmeryThe former Paris Saint-Germain manager was confirmed as Wenger’s successor on Wednesday after the board had conducted an extensive process into looking for a new head coach at the Emirates.Aubameyang, who joined the Gunners in January for a club record fee of £56m, believes that the appointment of Emery is a step in the right direction for Arsenal.“He’s a really good coach,” he told RMC.“In Paris, it’s never very easy. There’s a huge amount of pressure… I know he did really good work with Sevilla and with PSG too.”The Gabon international admitted that it will be “strange” not see Wenger at the club anymore, but believes the change was necessary as things had become to get “stagnated” over the past few years.“I think it’s a little bit of a mixed feeling in fact,” admitted Aubameyang, when asked about Wenger.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“On one hand, it’s strange for all the fans that the coach has left.

It’s going to be a new start so we’ll have so we’ll have to see how it goes… everyone will have to get it into their heads that we have to work hard to rival the best.”The 28-year-old would prefer a more central role in Arsenal attacking line-up, but is prepared to be deployed as a winger if Emery wants to.“I think everybody knows that I like playing through the centre. I hope that we can play with two attackers — that would be ideal. But if the new coach needs me on the wing, there’s no problem,” he said.Since arriving in January, Aubameyang got off to a very impressive start at Arsenal by scoring 10 goals and adding four assists in his 13 Premier League games.last_img read more

They’re not playing well, none of them, and it’s great to see,” said Gallagher in a cheeky response to how Mourinho is doing with the Red Devils.“It’s really, really great to see for City fans, particularly as the United fans had that banner up for 30 years about us not winning a trophy.”“Every day that goes past and that club is in turmoil is a great day. They’ve lived through that period Liverpool went through, when you couldn’t see them not winning the league.”“But they’re floundering at the minute. There’s no plan. They’re saying Jose is going to go, but the only thing that is keeping him in the job is the fact there’s nobody there to take it.”Gallagher also gave his two cents on the chances of Zinedine Zidane taking the seat at Old Trafford: “Zidane? He doesn’t speak English – it would be chaos. That club is in a chaotic state.”“The thing about Mourinho, is that he gets a lot of flak for telling it how it is.

Bernando Silva, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, John Stones, Kyle Walker – they were all big money signings but all turned out to be brilliant, massive players for us.”“United, on the other hand, seem to be just buying big money players without a plan.”🙌 “Every day that goes past with that club in turmoil is a great day!”🤔 “They’ve a lot of fans from all over the country but would they travel up if they were in the Championship?

So we know that is an area we have to tighten up with Customs. We were trying to put into place a program where we can have scanning of containers at the port of entry using new technology and we will be looking at that even more so than ever now than ever, because we really have to in the first instance, stop the importation of guns.”And the country leader is of the view that the public knows a lot but is sharing nothing. “We know in our communities who have the guns and person in our communities must take the initiative and report those persons whom they know have guns in their possessions, are illegal or even if it is not illegal. Police can do a background check to see if those individuals are licensed gun holders or not.”During that crime matters press conference held yesterday by the Premier, it was explained that the Police Commissioner will hold his own media debriefing next week. “The Commissioner of Police has committed to doing a press conference next week Tuesday and any specific technical questions that you may have I suggest that you start to accumulate them from now, so that during the press conference he can answer specifically some of those questions that you may ask.”Hon Rufus Ewing said he is in regular communication with the Governor on National Security issues, and that he has met three times with James Smith, who was installed as Commissioner of Police since February 2015.
