first_imgLifeNews 31 October 2013A group of 16 states have filed briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court this week that encourage the high court to reverse a federal appeals court decision overturning a ban the state of Arizona passed to ban abortions after 20 weeks because unborn children feel pain.The states are among the parties that filed briefs asking the high court to reverse a U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit decision against an Arizona law restricting non-emergency abortions after 20 weeks. Arizona legislators enacted the law based on evidence that shows children experience pain beginning at least at that stage and that women can experience increased physical risk and significant psychological trauma from late-term abortions.Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys are co-counsel in the case, Horne v. Isaacson, along with Arizona Solicitor General Robert Ellman, Maricopa County Attorney William Montgomery, former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III, John Eastman of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and attorneys with Americans United for Life. Last month, Montgomery and Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne petitioned the Supreme Court to hear the case.“Every innocent life deserves to be protected,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox. “Not only does this law protect children in the womb who experience horrific pain during a late-term abortion, it also protects mothers from the increased risk of physical harm and tremendous psychological consequences that come with late-term abortions.”“As the numerous states and organizations who have filed briefs with the Supreme Court rightly argue, Arizona’s law is entirely reasonable and constitutional,” added lead counsel John Eastman, director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence and one of nearly 2,300 attorneys allied with Alliance Defending Freedom. “We hope the Supreme Court accepts this invitation to revisit the extreme constraints Roe v. Wade imposed on the ability of states to respond to new medical knowledge and safeguard women’s health.” read more

first_img Press Association The Pat Martin-trained colt has finished no worse than fourth on his last nine starts and was second to Captain Power, who reopposes now, over the course and distance last week. There is a 5lb swing in the weights between the duo and this should give Ishebayorgrey the upper hand. Glimmer Of Peace has been knocking on the door of late and another solid effort can be expected from her with Pat Smullen in the saddle. Other leading contenders in the six-furlong contest are Tom Dooley, Oor Jock and Pretty Famous. Juliette Fair ran a fine race on debut at the Curragh in June and is sure to prove popular with punters in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden. The Dermot Weld-trained grey has most to fear from Ballydoyle newcomer Seventh Heaven, David Wachman’s Gilded Reflection and Mick Halford’s Indrahar. Connections of Octavia, Bainne, Creggs Pipes and Peace Mission will all fancy their chances in the five-runner Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Handicap, while Cullentry Royal, Pullman Brown, My Twinkle and Prussian Eagle look the ones to focus on in the Today FM Apprentice Handicap. Unicorn was well-fancied on debut at Galway but ran very green and finished a never-nearer third. With that experience under his belt the well-bred colt should prove hard to beat in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. The concluding Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden is a surprisingly weak affair with the Johnny Murtagh-trained Jolyne the clear form choice. center_img The ultra-consistent Ishebayorgrey goes in search of his fifth win of the season as he lines-up in the Bulmers Live At Leopardstown Handicap.last_img read more

first_imgThe Big Ten could not have asked for a better season under its new format with multiple upsets, primetime games and a budding rivalry between two revenge-minded teams who are set up for the rematch of the year.But before either Michigan State or Wisconsin even clinched their respective divisions, an unprecedented sense of parity in the conference throughout the course of the season became apparent. And it’s a good thing.Only two teams in the conference finished below .500. Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin all finished with a 10-2 record. Nebraska and Penn State finished at 9-3, while Iowa was the lone 7-5. Indiana and Minnesota rounded out the bottom-feeders at 1-11 and 3-9, respectively, while everyone else (Northwestern, Purdue, Ohio State and Illinois) finished at 6-6.At some point this season, every team beat at least one other conference team, with the exception of Indiana.Before the season started, two things seemed clear: Wisconsin and Nebraska were going to control the battle for the conference title, and Minnesota was going to be the sad, forgotten, red-headed step-child of the Big Ten.But once the season was underway, it was clear Nebraska was not quite the hard-hitting, dominating team everyone expected, Wisconsin had special teams issues and was easily foiled twice by a Hail Mary pass, and Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill could do more with a riff-raff team than anyone thought possible.No one expected the Big Ten race to be as close as it was and still is.While Michigan State was still expected to be one of the conference’s best and few but The Badger Herald’s own sports editor Mike Fiammetta expected the Spartans to win the Legends Division. Even I had my doubts.Questions surrounded the Badgers’ offense as to whether transfer quarterback Russell Wilson knew the playbook well enough, but before long, much of the nation was touting Wisconsin as a potential national championship team.Analysts expected Nebraska to seamlessly transfer into its new conference and instantly dominate. Before anyone knew it, the Big Ten race was frighteningly closer than anyone imagined.After toppling the Badgers, the Spartans could not recreate their offensive magic after devastating Wisconsin as they fell to Nebraska the following week. Wisconsin allowed blocked punts in back-to-back games, leading to their demise twice over. After opening conference play at Camp Randall Stadium, Nebraska gave up a huge upset at home to Northwestern.And while the expected frontrunners struggled, the middle-of-the-road squads came up with key wins to keep things interesting.Lowly Purdue took care of business at home and outplayed Ohio State in overtime for a 26-23 win.Michigan surprised everyone, handing Nebraska and Ohio State a loss each.Defensive-minded Penn State outplayed Ohio State in the Horseshoe and even had a chance at a birth into the conference title game.But all of this is a good thing.Having two or three teams control a conference doesn’t bode well for the entertainment value of games. Sure, it’s fun to see your team win week in and week out, but constantly winning against a lack of competition does not say much for a team.This new level of competition – or rising level – that developed this season only indicates a stronger Big Ten conference next year.While individual teams are currently not all that strong, if they keep trying to work up to the level of the leading squads, forcing those upsets, the conference overall will get more competitive.The Big Ten has already started to move in that direction this year with the amount of upsets and progress that took place. Now more teams need to be more formidable than simply resting at .500.Kelly is a junior majoring in journalism. Were you surprised by this year’s Big Ten conference play?

The No. 23 Orange, with a 4-7 record in doubles, went up against the Cavaliers’ three ranked doubles pairings. Sofya Golubovskaya and Sonya Treshcheva were the first to fall, losing their set 6-1 against No. 41 Vivian Glozman and Rosie Johanson.

Syracuse’s top singles player, No. 82 Guzal Yusupova, came soon after, losing 6-2, 6-1 against No. 10 Natasha Subhash. Virginia clinched the match after Hansen lost her singles point 6-3, 6-4 against No. 86 Sofia Munera. Losses from both Erman and Treshcheva extended the Cavaliers’ lead 6-0.Ramirez won the lone set for Syracuse, pushing her match to three sets after dropping her first set against No. 47 Rosie Johanson 6-3. When she won the second set, 6-4, Ramirez had a chance to earn a point back.

first_imgMORE:  Join DAZN and watch Canelo vs. Jacobs on May 4Not the fashion that Crawford wanted to get his latest victory in, but a win, nonetheless.Even if the low blow never happened, you got the distinct feeling that Khan (33-5) didn’t stand a chance anyway.Crawford started the fight dropping Khan with a vicious overhand right, which spun Khan around before he fell to the canvas.From there, “Bud” asserted his complete control and punished Khan’s body and stung him with hard shots that landed flush to the British fighter’s face.If the fight didn’t end on a low blow, there’s a solid chance that Crawford would have made sure to finish it via his scintillating skills as boxing’s arguable pound-for-pound best.”I could tell I was breaking him down. It was just a matter of time,” Crawford (35-0, 25 KOs) said during his post-fight interview. “I just took my time. I was disappointed the corner stopped the fight in that manner, but Virgil [Hunter] is a great coach, and he was looking out for his fighter. I know he didn’t want to go out like that.”After the disappointing win, Crawford also didn’t waste time calling out IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. for a unification fight.“The fight I want next is Errol Spence,” Crawford said. “Whenever he is ready, he can come and get it.”Here’s how the Crawford vs. Khan main card went.( All times Eastern. )Main card live updates, resultsMain event: Terence Crawford def. Amir Khan by TKO to retain WBO welterweight title after Khan can’t continue due to accidental low blowRound 6:  Crawford hits Khan with an accidental low blow, as the ref is giving him some time to recover here early in the sixth. But Khan claiming he can’t continue and just like that, the fight has been stopped. You never want to see a fight end like this. Any way, but this. Round 5:  A punishing left hook to the body begins Crawford’s attack and a left-right combo lands flush to Khan’s face moments later. Electric stuff from “Bud.” Left-handed uppercut lands for good measure. Khan trying to fight back, but it’s Crawford showcasing all of his skills, polish, power and boxing superiority five rounds in. (50-44 Crawford)Round 4:  A left hook lands for Crawford, who’s in complete control here. Vicious bodywork from Crawford that follows, working Khan’s body with unanswered punches — about six of them in a flurry. A punishing right to the body hurts Khan even further. Khan’s body is battered. (40-35 Crawford)Round 3:  Khan lands a left-right combination to get Crawford’s attention early in the third. A stiff right lands moments later. Just as I was close to giving Khan the edge this round, Crawford begins to dig into the body and ends the third with a left upstairs. Khan might have landed more shots this round, but Crawford still stuck the crisper punches. (30-26 Crawford)Round 2: Another overhand right followed by a left to the body was the highlight of the punishment Crawford dished out in the second round. Entering this bout, Khan had carved out the reputation of being a quick starter. Well, not this fight. (20-17 Crawford)Round 1:  Crawford drops Khan! And he’s going for the kill, trying to end this early. He was almost successful, too. Good grief! “Bud” dropped Khan on a vicious overhand right, which spun Khan around, before he fell to the canvas. Wow. Major fireworks from Crawford already and we’re only one round in. (10-8 Crawford)12:01 a.m.:  Crawford out to DMX’s “What’s My Name?” cut to Jadakiss “The Champ is Here” and cut to Jay Z’s “Encore.” The building is rocking, eating up every bit of this entrance from the arguable pound-for-pound best.12:00 a.m.:  Here comes Amir Khan out to Eminem’s “Not Afraid” and a loud ovation from the crowd here at MSG.11:50 p.m.:  Crawford-Khan in the main event is up next.11:47 p.m.:  Teofimo Lopez is one bad man.

It’s a wrap. Yet another KO for Lopez. Not as spectacular as the last couple of knockouts, but stinging nonetheless. Plus, you know when you’re comparing a fighter’s own knockouts, it’s someone special in the ring. “The Takeover” continues. And Lopez hits the LeBron James’ celebration, before sticking his traditional backflip. Lopez did say that he would end this fight before the sixth round and made good on that prediction. A KO, a @KingJames celebration and a backflip. No one is more entertaining than @TeofimoLopez #TheTakeover #CrawfordKhan— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) April 21, 2019After the fight, Lopez (13-0, 11 KOs) made it clear that it’s all main events from here on out.”I want a world title shot next,” he said in the ring. “That’s what I want. We promised to take over the show, and once again, I took it over. I’m ready for Richard Commey or the WBC title. As long as it’s for a title, I am ready to go. No one can take my power.”Round 4:  Lopez is tenderizing meat out here, repeatedly working the body and aiming upstairs with that right hook. (40-35 Lopez)Round 3:  “The Takeover” looking all too strong here early on, as Lopez lands a three-punch combination near the end of the third. All Lopez thus far. (30-27 Lopez)Round 2:  Lopez continuing to pepper Tatli with colorful jabs and combinations. Meanwhile, Tatli is hardly throwing any punches. This looks like it’s not going to end well for the fighter from Helsinki, Finland. (20-18 Lopez)Round 1: Lopez and Tatli trying to get a feel for each other, with the former landing stinging jabs to start things up. At about the minute mark of the first, Lopez takes an angle and lands a hook-uppercut combination to put Tatli on notice. (10-9 Lopez)11:12 p.m.:  Teofimo Lopez entering the ring to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” is going over really well. Another dynamic KO from Lopez, followed by another viral celebration would go over even better. The co-main event is up next.11:05 p.m.:  Terence Crawford looking more than ready to defend his WBO welterweight title against Amir Khan. The champ is ready! @terencecrawford #CrawfordKhan— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) April 21, 2019 11:03 p.m.:  You get the feeling that this Garden crowd is ready to unhinge.

The 21-year-old Newark product made that look too easy. “I’m the smartest boxer in boxing,” Stevenson said, earning him boos from the Garden crowd. “I feel like I’m the next Floyd.”Well, Mayweather himself dubbed Stevenson as “the next Floyd Mayweather” at one point. With the way the kid hits and doesn’t get hit much, you kind of see why.10:52 p.m.:  The 10th and final round of Stevenson-Diaz is coming up. Meanwhile, “The Takeover” looks to continue, as Teofimo Lopez faces Edis Tatli next. And you already know that Lopez is going to try to steal the show.  Final good luck wishes from family before @teofimolopez takes center stage. #CrawfordKhan— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) April 21, 2019 10:44 p.m.:  Replays caught Diaz resorting to stepping on Stevenson’s lead foot before Shakur returned the favor. That’s about the only way that Diaz is going to slow Stevenson down at this point, as he’s just not landing enough shots.10:33 p.m.: Stevenson’s hand speed is blinding, as he puts combinations together lighting fast. About 40 seconds into the fifth round, Diaz manages to get in close and unleash a couple of hooks. He has to continue doing that and try to muddy up this fight or else it feels like Stevenson is going to use the real estate given to him, pump that jab and keep stinging Diaz to yet another victory. 10:24 p.m.:  Diaz hits the canvas early in the third round and it’s ruled a slip, but that doesn’t stop a Stevenson supporter in the crowd from yelling “Get used to it!” Stevenson is about as polished of a 21-year-old boxer that you’ll see. SN has him pitching a shutout thus far.10:18 p.m.:  Stevenson looking razor sharp in the opening round, going straight down the middle with his jab and even piecing together combinations.10:12 p.m.:  Newark, N.J.’s own Shakur Stevenson getting a nice pop from the Garden crowd.
