If the projections turn into a reality, the Cornhuskers might not be bowling this season.Nebraska had an epic meltdown against Colorado this past Saturday. The Buffaloes are projected to be one of the worst teams in the Pac-12. Nebraska’s loss to them is not only bad for the program, but for the Big Ten conference.NU was expected to be one of the surprise breakout teams in the Big Ten, but those high expectation appear premature at the moment.Out of 10 remaining games, ESPN’s computer projects Nebraska will lose six and win just four more. As a result, and if the projections were to turn into a reality, the Cornhuskers would finish the season 5-7. Here’s the projected likelihood of Nebraska winning each individual game remaining on their schedule:vs. Northern Illinois – 82.8%at Illinois – 62%vs. No. 6 Ohio State – 19.9%vs. Northwestern – 67.5%at Minnesota – 33.6%vs. Indiana – 58.1%at Purdue – 49.4%vs. No. 14 Wisconsin – 24.6%at No. 21 Maryland – 18.8%vs. No. 19 Iowa – 34.2%ESPN projects Nebraska will beat Northern Illinois, Illinois, Northwestern and Indiana. Although, the Cornhuskers are also projected to lose to Ohio State, Minnesota, Purdue, Wisconsin, Maryland and Iowa.The closest projection on Nebraska’s schedule is Purdue. Though, the Cornhuskers are just 0.7% away from being favored in that match-up.Several of these projections are a bit surprising. But understandable given Nebraska’s horrific loss to Colorado.Can Nebraska rebound and do better than these projections suggest?last_img read more

UN chief horrified at buying and selling of African migrants in Libya

“Slavery has no place in our world and these actions are among the most egregious abuses of human rights and may amount to crimes against humanity,” Mr. Guterres told reporters at a press stakeout at the UN Headquarters, in New York, Monday. He added that he has asked the relevant UN actors to actively pursue the matter. Mr. Guterres also called on all countries to adopt and apply the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its protocol on trafficking in persons and I urge the international community to unite in fighting this scourge. The Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air, supplementing the Convention, was adopted by the UN General Assembly in November 2000. It entered into force in January 2004. It is an important legal instrument that seeks to prevent and combat the smuggling of migrants, as well as to promote cooperation among States Parties, while protecting the rights of smuggled migrants. Further in his remarks, the UN chief urge the international community to unite in fighting the scourge. He also called for addressing migration flows in a comprehensive and humane manner, including through the development cooperation among States to address its root causes, meaningful increase of all the opportunities for legal migration, and enhanced international cooperation in cracking down on smugglers and traffickers and protecting the rights of their victims. read more
