This is unbelievable. We certainly did not see this happening a few years ago when we battling in our club loosing as many games as we were winning, said the Alberta skip pointing out The Dominion is growing in popularity for club curlers. Martens and his Martensville Curling Club rink of Leo Perrin, Kevin Fehr and Chad Krikau proved a worthy opponent http://free.yudu.com/item/details/1422340/Popwatch-Entertainment-Weekly-s-Popwatch-Blog for Alberta as the two teams had finished first in their respective pools with 5-1 records and both came through the semi-finals with convincing wins. The three ender in the seventh end was generated by relentless pressure from the Edmonton rink who went into the seventh end tied at two knowing that they didnt want to get forced to one. Our plan was to load em up in the top of the house and probably leave myself a tough shot for two or at worst give them a steal of one http://billiotsany.fotopages.com/?entry=9718834 with us having the hammer coming home, said the 28-year-old Alberta skip showing great respect for Martens and his squad. The Saskatchewan skip knew he was in trouble when he came to throw his final stone without hammer as Alberta was lying four with 13 of the 16 rocks in play.

Alberta captures 2014 Canadian Mixed Championship




Were talking about contaminants that have been spread out over 150 plus kilometres of the river, says Ramsey Hart of Mining Watch. There may be hot spots that can be cleaned up from the most heavily polluted areas, but its going to be impossible to remove all the contaminants that have now been released. According to a new website established by Sherritt International, the plume of wastewater is now moving north at an estimated two to five km/h. Hart says the Alberta government talks about sucking up or dredging some of the sediments, but getting all of it will be a complicated process. Sherritt monitoring the spill Sherritt International says it's still evaluating the cost of cleaning up the massive spill... and determining what caused it. The company says a team of Sherritt employees and independent fish and other experts were dispersed along the creek system that travels down to the Athabasca and along the Athabasca River. They say they have been doing visual inspections on the land, in boats and in the air to asses the impact on any sediment and fish habitat. However, according to the Obed Mountain Mines website, visual inspection could be not be done Thursdaysince the river hadstarted to freeze. Sean McCaughen is the senior vice president of Sherritt Coal. What we have done already, we have installed some monitoring stations along the river.

will make all decisions related to resource development and will keep half of the royalty revenues, to a maximum of $60 million. That might be a rounding error for Alberta, but it's a significant sum for the territory. And it's clear, in speaking with Ramsay over the course of a lunch hour, that the N.W.T. is facing many of the challenges Alberta deals with, albeit on a smaller scale. What's of interest to N.W.T. officials is Alberta's new regulatory structure, which takes a big step toward consolidating the regulatory functions contemplated under the Responsible Energy Development Act at the end of this month under the newly created Alberta Energy Regulator.

It was a crazy game, said Moulding. We had our chances; we almost broke it open in five when I had a shot for five or six. After missing that it felt like somebody kicking me in the gut. But then you go, OK, were tied with the hammer. Someone tells us were tied with hammer with five ends to go to win a Canadian championship, you take it, right? Its amazing to share it with this team. Its just one of those things where you want to win more for the people on your team than yourself, right? I think thats when people perform their best. With the win, the Moulding team gets two entries (two two-person teams) into the 2014 Canadian Mixed Doubles Trials, slated for March 19-23, also in Ottawa.

Texas Congressmen Recall Where They Were When Jfk Was Shot









During the 28-year period that Texas A&M has served as science operator for the program, it has received funding in excess of $1.5 billion, with much of it spent in Texas. IODP headquarters are located in the Texas A&M Research Park. Of federally funded programs that have successfully been carried out in Texas, only the Johnson Space Center in Houston has received more financial support than IODP, according to tapes informal tabulations. This is another homerun for Texas A&Mand for Texas, economically and otherwise, said Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp.It puts us even more in the worldwide vanguard of scientific research, and Im confidentthat the findings that come from this research can have far-reaching applications.

Behind two seasons with at least a combined 19 wins (A&M still has three games remaining this season), Sumlin has transformed the program, and no matter his results for the coming three to four years, the head coach will have a job in College Station. USC's situation is a little more volatile, and by a little, I mean a lot. After losing Pete Carroll to the NFL, the Trojans have been unable to find a suitable replacement, joining the flurry of programs in a down stretch while searching for the right fit. If Sumlin left for Los Angeles today, he would be under immediate pressure to elevate the program's performance to the same high level he has at A&M in such a short time. However, USC is a whole other world compared to College Station, and there remains no guarantee Sumlin's system, nor his recruiting tactics, would work at all. USC's patience wouldn't last long. sites Recruiting Scott Halleran/Getty Images When it comes down to comparing California and Texas in terms of the fertility of the respective recruiting grounds, it's basically a toss-up. Throw Florida into the mix and you have the who's who of richest talent pools in the country. However, Sumlin has established his presence in Texas. And while A&M's recruiting efforts continue to be national, including California, the Lone Star State remains the primary target for the maroon and white.

(USA TODAY Sports) Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin played a pivotal role in moving the Aggies to the SEC. When the university left the Big 12, it also left the 118-year rivalry it had with Texas.

Ive always said anytime, anywhere, although others [in the A&M administration] are not saying it that way anymore, Loftin told the San Antonio Express-NewsBrent Zwerneman .I still think that, left to ourselves, we will find a way to get together.
