Tua Tagovailoa delivered a quick strike to Jaylen Waddle and the rookie catcher was off to the races.

Exactly as designed.

It was Waddle for 57 yards and he set up a touchdown and it was just a telltale play of a telltale loss of the Dolphins to the Panthers on Sunday.

The Hard Rock Stadium was vibrating.

And Tua was making an incredibly high passing percentage.

As designed.

And Waddle was gaining yards after catching – and, zoom in! – he looks so fast right now.

Four in a row: Instant takeaways from the 33-10 eruption of the Dolphins Panthers

Game summary: Miami Dolphins won fourth straight game on Sunday

Deep ball? No problem: Dolphins thought Tua could throw it deep

Miami beat the Panthers, 33-10, and they won four straight games.

“We look like the team we kind of wanted to be at the start of this year,” Tagovailoa said at the end.

After a 1-7 start it’s 5-7 and the Giants and Jets are suddenly waiting for a 7-7 mark and the playoff odds talks aren’t that crazy after all.

When the Dolphins drafted Waddle, they thought he would have the kind of game he played on Sunday, a big game-breaker for his former college teammate, Tua.

And as Tua has gotten healthier (from hip to ribs to finger), it looks like Waddle has been waddling around as well. He’s just looking faster over the past few weeks as his yards per take increase.

Tua attempted 31 passes. He finished 27.

He was a dart thrower. And he was approaching perfection.

In his last two starts, Tua completed 54 of 64 assists. It’s 84 percent.

Waddle put in a magnificent performance with 137 receiving yards. That day, Waddle lived up to his sixth overall pick status in an NFL Draft.

“Jaylen was in the right place at the right time,” Tua said. “There are times when it’s covered and it’s always open.”

No, it’s not perfect.

Miami’s offensive line still has its fragile moments. But Tua often overcame this on Sunday, moving around and out of the pocket, sometimes by design, and sometimes, by improvisation.

Tua defeated the NFL’s No.1 ranked pass defense.

When general manager Chris Grier and Flores put together this 2021 Dolphins roster, they envisioned a lot of what we saw unfold.

The Dolphins’ defense embarrassed accomplished Carolina signalman Cam Newton. Second-round rookie Jevon Holland intercepted him. Then, on the next series, Howard, with his contract changed and everything, intercepted it again.

Dolphins rookie first-round pass thrower Jaelan Phillips was a terror. He fired Newton. Then he added two more bags. He was relentless.

Miami’s defense looked like it was in 2020, only better.

So many reasons to be optimistic. So many reasons to hope. And after all it looked so lost in an almost inexplicable 1-7 start.

“Credit to the players,” said Flores, adding that, yes, his coaching staff have done a good job of putting their players in a better position to be successful.

George Godsey has become the undisputed leading offensive player. And while it’s not perfect, he’s done a good job in recent weeks.

The Dolphins have found ways to slightly improve the racing game.

The Dolphins have found ways to give Waddle a chance to play bigger.

And they won those four games without DeVante Parker or Will Fuller, by the way.

Tagovailoa has achieved a pass rating over 100 in four of his last five appearances, which is progress, which is exactly what Miami needs to see.

He showed tenacity, playing through painful wounds. And he’s won games, which matters most.

Under Flores, the Dolphins have improved after slow starts every season. It would help if Miami got off to a quicker start, but the mark of a well-trained team is one that improves instead of regressing.

In 2019, it was a 0-7 start, but a 5-4 finish.

In 2020, it was a 1-3 start, but a 9-3 finish.

And in 2021, a 1-7 start but now a 4-0 streak.

How will it end? Could Miami seriously be the first team to advance to the NFL playoffs after a 1-7 start?

It is not yet easy to make this call. But it’s clear the Miami players haven’t given up on Flores and left the season.

For that reason, it seems quite likely now that owner Stephen Ross won’t give up on Flores and probably not Grier either, anytime soon.

After all, a lot of Grier’s decisions are starting to look better.

But let’s see how it goes. Sure, it’s a lot more fun, isn’t it?

A four-game winning streak for Tua and the Dolphins.

And, to be clear, it’s not about smoke and mirrors. Sunday was a domineering performance returned by Miami, as a slight underdog at home.

There was a fierce defense. There were timely offensive plays, including several key third-down conversions from Tua, which improved Miami’s third-down offense.

There was a blocked punt recovered for a touchdown. It was total teamwork.

It was, on a glorious late November day in South Florida, exactly how dolphins designed things to go.

Have you ever wondered why the pain from a toothache doesn’t seem to stay in the tooth? A photo shared on social media offers a complex insight into the proximity of nerves from the human brain extending around the face and spreading to every tooth.

The image in question was popularized in November 2021 when it was shared on Reddit, but had been shared on social media in previous years by doctors and dentists.

The nerves that innervate the teeth of interest

And it is true and authentic. The image was created by Anatomy Next, a medical publishing company specializing in print books and digital software and representing the nerve connections between the brain and teeth.

The nerves that end in each tooth originate from the maxillary nerve, which originates from the trigeminal nerve, a mixed nerve bundle made up of motor and sensory fibers that extends around the brain and all over the face. The trigeminal nerve provides sensory innervation to the oral and nasal cavities, as well as the ear, conjunctiva (mucous membrane that covers the front of the eye) and facial skin, according to Anatomy Next.

Being the second branch of the trigeminal nerve, the maxillary nerve provides sensory information to the central nervous system from the teeth of the upper jaw, upper lip and check, and the middle parts of the face.

It is very important for everyone to cultivate compassion within. Compassion is important to yourself and to those who make up your community. Its community includes family, friends, but also those with different points of view: your adversaries and your enemies. A little compassion goes a long way in turning an enemy into an enemy. An enemy is just one step away from a friend.

Looking through a lens of compassion can be a daunting task, especially when so many people are just plain wrong! Where are they? Each person has their own perspective which is part of what we hold dear about our First Amendment. Seeing the world through the eyes of another helps to see eye to eye. People often disagree so bitterly on such pressing matters. Compassion is one of our most crucial tools in finding common ground to understand each other and to implement solutions that work for all parties.

Even the most favorable cannabis advocates would do well to feel compassion for those who are afraid to regulate the substance. Opponents of cannabis tend to cite the safety and protection of children as their main concerns. As an advocate for cannabis regulation, I hear these concerns loud and clear and I share them. Cannabis regulations help alleviate these concerns, which gives me hope that the “divide” is not as big as we have been led to believe.

In 1996, California Proposition 215 (The Compassionate Use Act) proposed to allow the personal use and cultivation of medical cannabis for people on the recommendation of a physician. It was designed to help people with cancer, AIDS, glaucoma and other debilitating illnesses find relief.

It rose from 55.6% statewide (MUCH higher in Sonoma County), illustrating that enough people have found it in their hearts to give this ‘alternative’ substance a chance ( remember that cannabis has been used for medical purposes for 5,000 years by written record).

The initiative to legalize medical cannabis was created on the basis of compassion for people with HIV and AIDS. Just take Brownie Mary as an example. During the height of the AIDS epidemic, Mary Jane Rathbun was famous for making hundreds of pot brownies a day to give to AIDS and cancer patients. She distributed them throughout the San Francisco community. While she has been arrested a few times for possession, her compassion has helped pave the way for California to be the first to choose cannabis regulations over ban. She was just an ordinary woman who saw a need for pain relief, and she made a commitment – something we could all do in our own way. Its legacy lives on through the Brownie Mary Democratic Club, the first cannabis organization to be officially connected to a major political party, the California Democratic Party.

This compassionate foundation for the medical cannabis movement has also been found elsewhere, in Santa Cruz, California. After becoming a consumer of medical cannabis and suffering the consequences of her illegal status, Valerie Leveroni founded the Wo / Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM) in 1993. WAMM is a non-profit medical cannabis distribution collective in through which members receive biological drugs. cannabis at cost. Valerie Leveroni and WAMM were key aspects of the legalization of medical cannabis in California and provided a much needed pain relief substitute for so many people with chronic pain and AIDS. When you look at the history of cannabis in this state, much of it exists thanks to compassionate efforts to help those in need. It is something that we must continue to support and nurture.

Modernization of regulations, at local and state level, provides adults with access to regulated cannabis. Cannabis is a therapeutic substance. More and more people, with the advice of their doctors, are able to substitute cannabis for certain prescription drugs with monstrous side effects. Imagine the power of adults able to grow or buy an herb that provides healthy relief.

Regulated cannabis brings relief to millions of people in our state every day. Cannabis has been illegal federally since 1937, but prohibition collapses one state regulatory effort at a time. The federal government has come to their senses and legalized hemp and, in all likelihood, will legalize cannabis soon. Undoing the prohibitionist preference and bringing in culture will take time. Slowly but surely, local governments in California are adopting and improving cannabis trade regulations over prohibitionist policies. Adapting to this change and seeing how we can work together to create safer, quality-tested, ecologically grown and accessible cannabis is the future. There are fears on this plant that need healing. There are needs for this plant that require access. A little “two-sided” compassion will help us best meet each other’s needs, allowing us to be on the same side of what is happening.

LAS VEGAS – All questions about Terence Crawford have been answered.

For years, the only hit on him was that he was missing a signing victory. He eventually recovered one – and in an exceptional way – when he became the first fighter to stop Shawn Porter, registering a 10th round TKO to retain his WBO welterweight championship in front of 11,568 fans at Michelob ULTRA Arena.

Now the world will be clamoring for a unification fight with IBF and WBC champion Errol Spence Jr.

As has always been the case against Porter, winning wasn’t easy.

At the time of the shutdown, Crawford was up on all three scorecards: 86-85, 86-85 and 87-84. Porter steadily stepped inside and kept Crawford off balance with the aggression and pressure. But Crawford started timing Porter’s advances, then knocked him out with counters that eventually exhausted the former two-time champion.

On lap 10, Crawford opened with a dull left hand that dropped Porter onto his back. A frustrated Porter got up but encountered a glittering jumpsuit that knocked Porter to his knees. Porter hammered the web in frustration and got to his feet. Sadly, his father and trainer Kenny Porter decided his son had had enough and threw in the towel.

Crawford improved to 38-0 with 29 KOs. Porter became his ninth consecutive knockout victim. As for Porter, his career is sort of at a crossroads as he drops to 31-4-1 and slips to the back of the pack when it comes to title opportunities.

Here’s how it all went in Las Vegas.

Terence Crawford vs. Shawn Porter live updates, highlights

(All Eastern hours.)

Premier League football is finally back. Every Arsenal fan watching what was in fact an exciting international break rushed for the return of domestic action to see Mikel Arteta’s side again.

Then everyone remembered it was Liverpool. At Anfield. Under the projectors.

Suddenly, the level of excitement dropped somewhat. But over the years of annual beatings, supporters have grown thick. Losing on the side of the “big six” has become the norm. It’s still hopelessly painful, mind you.

What Arsenal has now is renewed optimism. Then again, those words have been used on several occasions in conjunction with trips to the red half of Merseyside, and two points in the last eight league games at Anfield are all there is to show.

Liverpool vs Arsenal: Gunners’ weakness to be negative when passing ahead could turn into effective tactical strategy at Anfield

But they are a thriving, confident team, fifth in the Premier League table and unbeaten in ten matches in all competitions. There is the conviction of getting a result no matter how incomplete the team is in some departments and after taking into account how devastating this Liverpool side really is.

Arteta was built over the summer and this squad of players is nothing like those who made the journey north and left empty-handed for nearly a decade. From back to front there are exciting players, talented individuals and a collective spirit.

The new signings have had a magnificent impact, playing a substantial role in making Arsenal more solid, structured and fluid.

However, all is not where it needs to be, and one of the team’s biggest weaknesses is their attitude and reaction when they walk past. Ironically, that could work to their advantage on Saturday.

We will learn a lot about the confidence of this group from the way they start this game. Over the past few weeks, there has been a growing trend that has become so common it is even less of a shock: Arsenal are breaking out of the traps, pressing high and pushing their center-backs all the way to the middle line.

This forward-thinking and assertive approach saw the Gunners teams move away and effectively win games in 20 minutes. On display against Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Leicester, this flamboyant mantra is both exhilarating in its execution in the blink of an eye, then biting. Arsenal got those leads and then sat on them.

So how will this work in their favor?

Students use art as a tool to protest divestment – The Williams Record https://web-xpress.com/students-use-art-as-a-tool-to-protest-divestment-the-williams-record/ Wed, 17 Nov 2021 05:57:50 +0000 https://web-xpress.com/students-use-art-as-a-tool-to-protest-divestment-the-williams-record/ Art has a long history in social protest, and the gray clouds and rainy weather on Friday morning cleared up just in time for students to cover the damp steps of the Paresky Center with vibrant chalk drawings and posters calling on the College to publicly withdraw from fossil fuels.

Art has a long history in social protest, and the gray clouds and rainy weather on Friday morning cleared up just in time for students to cover the damp steps of the Paresky Center with vibrant chalk drawings and posters calling on the College to publicly withdraw from fossil fuels.

Although the College has announced its intention to phase out the remaining 4% of indirect investment in the fossil fuel industry, the administration refuses to announce a concrete commitment like its counterparts. Young Democratic Socialists of America (yDSA) organized the protest to pressure the college to publish a statement via campus-wide email and a standing post on the website signaling their commitment to end all forms of investment in fossil fuels.

In addition to an eye-catching poster depicting the group’s requests, various other art forms embodied the spirit and feelings of the gathering.

Coconut Rum ’24

On the Tuesday before the event, one of the organizers – Coco Rhum ’24 – hosted a community art creation event in which around 20 people helped design the banner and make posters. “We also had so many people who helped design and make buttons, create digital art and of course sign the banner and draw with chalk at the protest,” he said. she said, referring to the orange banner on which all the protesters signed. their names before it hung on Paresky’s balcony. “The banner is a perfect example of how we can clarify our demands and gain community buy-in by doing so, through people signing their names.”

“Making art is definitely a big part of our movement,” said Rhum. “Art allows us to bring people into our work in a tangible way and to communicate our values ​​and goals in a way that is engaging and engaging with a given audience. ”

Annie Scott ’25 and Deion Hammond ’25

“I think there is something about the way the chalk sticks to the ground,” said Annie Scott ’25, sketching an earth next to the words “Williams [Hearts] Oil, oil kills. “Art as a medium tends to stick a lot more than other forms of communication,” she said.

Writing ‘EPHS’ alongside Scott, Deion Hammond ’25 noted the abundance of like-minded artists. “Art will never exist on the side of the oppressors,” Hammond said. “That’s why in those kinds of cases you get a lot of people together, they’re very creative and very ready to take those systems out. “

Erinn McKenzie ’23

Erinn McKenzie ’23 said she uses art as a means of personal and social expression. “I have been an artist for most of my life, so activism in the form of art helps me convey that I am a black person, a queer person and a person facing this current climate issue.” McKenzie said. His poster read “DIVEST OR DIE” in red letters.


Dalilah Montesino ’25

A poster by Dalilah Montesino ’25 spoke of the lack of transparency, in letters of glittery glue demanding that the university “disclose, separate and reinvest.” “[Williams] doesn’t want us to think he’s divested, ”she said. ” It’s bland. If they have already divested but have not issued a return, there is no way to withhold [the College] indebted. ”

Emma Nathanson ’25

Emma Nathanson ’25 – who designed the button that reads’ divest williams stand with us! – said she appreciated how protest art often captures the positive possibilities activists fight for. “I think a lot of the climate change stories focus on destruction, sacrifice and pain,” she said. “It’s good to focus on joy, rebirth and regeneration.”

Waking up that morning, Renie heard drops outside the house. I opened the blinds on the bedroom window and saw a soggy lead gray sky. Immediate reaction? “Oh no! A horrible, gray, depressing, endless rainy day. I’m going to sink into depression. In fact, I’m already there.

Then the thought struck. You have a choice, Reeno. You may be gloomy and depressed all day from the cold and rain, or you may be reminded that the grass and flowers need and love it.

Perspective.

How we choose to look at a situation makes a huge difference. This determined why Renie turned on all the lights, put on some happy music, and got to work feeling grateful for the sky-sent automatic sprinkler system. Rather than sink emotionally into a dark quagmire of unhappy childhood memories of dark, lonely, icy and hazy days.

If you’re like the rest of us mere mortals, you have weaknesses, fears, and emotional struggles. And if you don’t struggle with any of these attributes, then I’d like to spend a few weeks tapping into your superhumanity. Or, more likely, having the opportunity to look each other in the eye and call you a liar in the face.

Because the point is that as human beings who live on planet Earth with all of its pains and problems, each of us has bad experiences. These days leave their mark on our psyche in the form of painfully uncomfortable memories. And when something happens to trigger those memories and the feelings that result from them, then we have to make a choice. Wallowing in negative emotions or realizing that we can deliberately choose to find positive emotions.

Difficult to do? Yes. It’s worth a try ? Absoutely.

After all, going through the real situation that created the pain was bad enough, why do you relive that pain, anger, and depression over and over again? A much better choice? To kind of find gratitude in that same memory.

Yes, I realize that many of you reading this are in great pain. And that grief and pain is not something to cover up, but to go through at your own pace. But your future peace and happiness will depend on how you deal with the memories of this depressing time.

Do yourself a huge favor.

Accept that you have hurtful memories. Deliberately acknowledge these memories – don’t refuse to admit that they exist. Realize that they have an extreme impact on your current emotions and thoughts. If possible, when pain strikes, find gratitude in that memory. And put a lot of emphasis on this gratitude to change your state of mind and your emotions. You cannot change the memories – only your perspective.

If you are not up to the point in your life to be able to do this, then please find someone who you can trust with your thoughts, and TALK. A friend, counselor, pastor, or someone on the other end of a HELP hotline.

You’re worth it.

“One of the only things I remember was talking to the anesthesiologist about ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’.” https://web-xpress.com/one-of-the-only-things-i-remember-was-talking-to-the-anesthesiologist-about-rupauls-drag-race/ Wed, 10 Nov 2021 12:27:37 +0000 https://web-xpress.com/one-of-the-only-things-i-remember-was-talking-to-the-anesthesiologist-about-rupauls-drag-race/ He started to experience headaches, dizziness and pain behind his eyes at the beginning of June of this year.

He started to experience headaches, dizziness and pain behind his eyes at the beginning of June of this year. In a huge whirlwind, he went from diagnosis to emergency surgery to remove the tumor in just a few days.

Tom went to his GP on the advice of a nurse while working as a police detention officer and he felt dizzy. The GP suggested he see an optician, and when the optician found the backs of Tom’s eyes to be red and swollen, he was immediately sent to the Bristol Eye Hospital eye clinic. Although the optician told him not to worry and that he probably needed eye drops, Tom would soon discover that the swelling was a sign of pressure on his brain that could be caused by a tumor.

This was unfortunately confirmed after Tom underwent various eye tests and a CT scan with contrast dye at the nearby Bristol Royal Infirmary. He was then transferred by ambulance to the Neurology Department at Southmead Hospital for treatment.

Tom said: “The optician checked my eyes and looked a little panicked. Still, I went to the eye hospital thinking it was all simple and I had no idea that anything was seriously wrong. I didn’t feel like I was in the right place when I was then sent to the hospital majors department. It all happened so fast.

“You could have heard a fly fly when a neurosurgeon told me at 11:30 pm that night that I had a brain tumor.

“I called my partner and we both got teary eyed when I told him I was going to have a biopsy and a drain placed in my skull to relieve the pressure. I thought it might be. the last conscious time that I spoke to her.

“A strange memory that will stay with me forever was being brought to the operating room at 1 a.m. and talking to the BBC’s RuPaul’s Drag Race anesthesiologist because she had one.” badge on its lanyard. We discussed the American series and the upcoming British series. I said badges were only available to UK Series winners and she suggested I look for one on Etsy right before they knocked me out.

After further MRI scans, Tom underwent surgery two weeks later, which successfully removed 95% of the tumor, which turned out to be a neurocytoma. He had a seizure following the operation, the only one he has had, although he is now taking anti-epileptic drugs which are gradually reduced in dosage over time. After also spending time in intensive care and also undergoing another round of MRI scans, Tom was able to return home on June 23. He is now on a supervised treatment program and he has MRI scans every six months to monitor his condition for any changes.

Tom said: “I was so grateful to come home that day in June – it was during the heatwave so I had very hot days in the hospital. I have found that my type of brain tumor is very rare. We don’t know much about it. But, due to the size of my tumor, the doctors think it might have grown in the past five years. It’s very scary to think of especially when, during that time, I was doing physically demanding jobs, got a full truck license, worked for a transport company, and drove offenders into custody across the country.

“Since then, I’ve had good days and I’ve had bad days. I can’t drive now, what you don’t realize is such a gigantic freedom until it is gone. The scans showed the tumor has not grown – and I will have it checked again in March with the next scan. I still have some aches and pains and a few headaches, but it’s nothing a pain reliever can’t fix now.

Tom credited The Brain Tumor Charity with providing him with invaluable help and support to get him through the ordeal he has been through since his diagnosis.

He added: “The Brain Tumor Charity has helped me tremendously, especially the Facebook support groups. When you are diagnosed you are suddenly thrown into a world you know very little about and are supposed to deal with it on your own. Support groups provide a place for you to ask all of these questions and get answers from people who are going through the same thing. I was worried about the results of the MRI, the DVLA and the pain in my head. You can also read other people’s messages and take comfort in the fact that you are not alone.

“The BRIAN app is also fantastic. I find the daily recordings and reminders that you can set up when you need to take medication or make appointments very useful. Honestly, I don’t think I would have coped so well with everything that has happened to me without The Brain Tumor Charity.
