Death Toll in Mexico Blast Rises to 66; Leader Vows to Intensify Crackdown on Fuel Theft

Death Toll in Mexico Blast Rises to 66; Leader Vows to Intensify Crackdown on Fuel Theft

Oasa/EPA, via Shutterstock MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s president vowed on Saturday to redouble his fight against an epidemic of chronic fuel theft after thieves punctured a pipeline north of Mexico City, causing an explosion that killed at least 66 people and injured 76 others. The blast underscored the deadly perils of the fuel-theft racket, which has cost the government billions of dollars a year and has been the target of a weekslong crackdown by the administration of Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. “We will not stop. It was the deadliest pipeline explosion in Mexico in recent memory. Fuel theft has been a longstanding problem in Mexico that, until recent years, was mostly written off by the government as a business cost, analysts said. They have generally used high-powered drills to perforate the pipes, installing taps to siphon the fuel. The problem has soared in recent years. In a news conference on Saturday morning, Octavio Romero, the general director of Pemex, said that in the past three months, thieves had drilled at least 10 holes in the same pipeline that exploded on Friday, also causing fires. “Today the state of Hidalgo is crying because of this tragedy, which has taken so many people’s lives. “Many of the gravely wounded are battling between life and death,” he said.
Five possible candidates to be the Dallas Cowboys’ next offensive coordinator

Five possible candidates to be the Dallas Cowboys’ next offensive coordinator

Here are five possible candidates to be the Cowboys' next offensive coordinator: 1. Nussmeier has experience in the college game, working as offensive coordinator for Washington, Alabama, Michigan and Florida within the last 10 years. In his end-of-season news conference Monday, Garrett spoke highly of Nussmeier's first season coaching the Cowboys' tight ends. Before Georgia, Coley was offensive coordinator at Florida State and Miami. Dan Campbell The New Orleans Saints' tight ends coach and assistant head coach played tight end for the Cowboys from 2003 to 2005. Campbell has been in his Saints role since 2016. Like Moore, Lal would bring continuity since both are familiar with the roster and staff. If Romo or Witten wanted to go directly from the broadcast booth to an NFL staff, they'd likely have to start as a position coach before elevating to offensive coordinator. More on Dallas' OC search -- A Cowboys sacrifice has been made in Scott Linehan, and here's the added meaning behind the timing of it -- Five possible candidates to be the Cowboys' next offensive coordinator -- Three must-have qualities a new offensive coordinator should bring to the Dallas Cowboys -- The Cowboys' next step after removing Scott Linehan is the important one -- and no, it's not firing Jason Garrett -- Linehan's departure as OC may give Cowboys fans hope, but it's hard to foresee huge changes with Garrett still at the helm -- National reaction to Scott Linehan departure: Dez Bryant throws some shade; should Cowboys reach out to Jason Witten?

Marquise Brown Declares for 2019 NFL Draft, Will Leave Oklahoma

Marquise Brown Declares for 2019 NFL Draft, Will Leave Oklahoma

Oklahoma receiver Marquise Brown announced his intention to declare for the 2019 NFL draft Wednesday on Twitter: The former junior college transfer had one more year of eligibility remaining but will instead try to move on to the next level. He led the Sooners this season with 75 catches and 1,318 receiving yards to go with his 10 touchdowns. The 5'10" receiver reached the 1,000-yard milestone in each of his two years at Oklahoma, finishing tied for eighth in the country in yards this season. His production and skill as a deep threat make him one of the top prospects in the 2019 class at his position. According to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, Brown is the No. 3 receiver in the upcoming draft as well as the top slot receiver and best route-runner. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network compared him to another successful player: Daniel Jeremiah OU WR Marquise Brown reminds me of Desean Jackson when he was at Cal. He is so smooth & explosive—Natural hands and he can run every route with ease. There is no denying the receiver's skills as a game-changer with the ball in his hands, finishing the year with six touchdown catches of 50 yards or more. On the other hand, he also had a tendency to disappear at times during the season.

Home News Health Daily news 17 January 2019 Could a diet save the planet? Only if we pay the real cost of food Ilka & Franz/Getty By Michael Le Page Our food is killing us, and the planet. That’s the message from a group of 37 experts called the EAT-Lancet commission, which spent three years poring over the evidence to work out the best diet in terms of health and the environment. Their conclusion: we need to radically change what we eat. That means far more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and tubers, and far less meat, dairy and sugar.

In 1993, the Cowboys put it ‘in 3-inch headlines.’ Now they celebrate wild-card wins

Those charming, captivating days of the Dallas Cowboys are so long gone we are left to celebrate wild-card wins, and owner Jerry Jones’ proclaiming that his head coach of eight years and two playoff wins would have five other head coaching offers if he left. 00:58 What's impacting the New England-Kansas City line DraftKings NFL | 00:58 01:14 Intriguing conference championship prop bets DraftKings NFL | 01:14 01:55 How the conference championship lines could change DraftKings NFL | 01:55 15:58 La NFL, mediotiempo y Buffalo Wild Wings Medio Tiempo Sports | 15:58 01:17 Is Kelce worth the lofty DK price? Galloway was on the air when his producer, David Hatchett, told him, “Jimmy Johnson is on the line and he wants to talk to you.” “One side of my brain is thinking, ‘What did I say in the last hour that would have made him mad?’” Galloway said this week. One year later, the Cowboys hosted the 49ers in the NFC title game. By that point, Hatchett had already alerted the Associated Press, and the local media. “Put it in three-inch headlines” would become part of NFL lore right next to Jimmy’s, “How ‘bout them Cowboys!” Many of the players thought Jimmy was under the influence of a drink or two, or 10. Later, long time Cowboys public relations director Rich Dalrymple approached Johnson about his comment. Dallas out-gained the 49ers 273-110 in the first half and led, 28-7. The year after, they won their last Super Bowl in a game that every veteran on that team will admit they had no idea how they won. Everyone associated with that NFC title game has moved on, with the exception of the owner/GM of the Cowboys himself who, not long after this day, claimed “500 coaches” could win a Super Bowl with that assembled roster.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Torches Trump For Shutdown In First House Floor Speech

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Torches Trump For Shutdown In First House Floor Speech

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) used her inaugural speech on the House floor to condemn President Donald Trump over the ongoing partial government shutdown. The freshman congresswoman said Wednesday the shutdown was not really about Trump’s demands for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border or “the well-being of everyday Americans.” Instead, she said, it was “about the erosion of American democracy and the subversion of our most basic governmental norms.” ”It is not normal to hold 800,000 workers’ paychecks hostage. It is not normal to shut down the government when we don’t get what we want. It is not normal for public servants to run away and hide from the public that they serve,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “And it is certainly not normal to starve the people we serve for a proposal that is wildly unpopular among the American people.” The jobs performed by federal workers and the anti-immigrant sentiment of Trump’s administration were “stressful enough” without the shutdown, she said, noting that Trump shared in the “responsibility to maintain the basic functioning” of government. Check out the full clip here: Earlier in the day, Ocasio-Cortez joined fellow freshmen Democrats in searching for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). They wanted to hand over a letter demanding the end of the shutdown. Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues documented their hunt, which proved unsuccessful, on Twitter: The #WheresMitch hashtag also captured the imagination of others online:
