I had just crossed Summerlin Road onto Bass Road and I was T-Boned. I had a significant loss of blood. My car was totaled. Multiple fractures.” Dennis Lock was transported to the Lee Health Trauma Center where he underwent several surgeries. “Blood needs are constant for this health system. There are always people receiving blood products and we need people out to donate for that need,” said Lee Health blood center supervisor, Jeremy Puckett. Lee Health uses about 800 units of blood products a week. “It makes a huge difference. It’s a very important, lifesaving item when you need it,” he said. One blood donation can save up to two lives. “The gift of blood saved my life. Just take a few minutes out of your day and try to give that gift because it could be you, or one of your loved ones. I’m living proof that it does work,” said Lock. A gift that for Dennis Lock was lifesaving.

Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 12 episode 9 recap

first_imgRaven roasting herself is an entire mood. 😂 #DragRace pic.twitter.com/ydz7wS7pAl— RuPaul’s Drag Race (@RuPaulsDragRace) April 25, 2020 “LOOK OVER THERE!” 😂☝️@jaidaehall @Racheldoesstuff #DragRace pic.twitter.com/qXORt2u6ul— RuPaul’s Drag Race (@RuPaulsDragRace) April 25, 2020 These ladies are lighting up the stage tonight, henny! 🎆 #DragRace pic.twitter.com/9A27pL4JvB— RuPaul’s Drag Race (@RuPaulsDragRace) April 25, 2020 Heading in to the runway, it felt like Jaida was leading the pack and Widow and Gigi could be in trouble.The category for the runway was Stars and Stripes Forever and there was much to like from the seven queens in a strong round. We’ve reached episode 9 of Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 12 and in case you missed it, I’m bringing you a handy recap of the goings on.If you want to avoid spoilers for Rupaul’s Drag Race, stop reading now.Last week we said goodbye to one of the favourites, Jan and she even got a little montage at the start of this week’s episode as the other queens talked about her bright, upbeat persona.Moving on to this week and Ru set the girls a quick mini challenge to become Kitty Girl 2020 – an excuse for some product placement from a kitty litter company.  First up was Crystal who playfully knocked over a vase, then came Purrrtha Kitt (Jackie) who rolled her r’s as she had Ru and the other queens laughing.  I think Heidi, Jaida and especially Widow took it too literally as they rolled around with a ball of wool, chased a laser pointer and even pole danced the scratching pole.  Gigi kept it cool as she played a disinterested fashion kitty with a cool edge and in the brief glimpse of Sherry she spat out a fur ball.  Jackie was rightly crowned queen.Ru then announced that this week’s maxi challenge would be a Presidential debate and invited Raven to the Werk Room to advise the girls.  Raven was never a favourite of mine, fashion wise she’s great but I found her a bit bitchy, however in this episode she was incredibly witty and self depreciating.  She gave some good advice to the girls telling them to not take it too seriously and make sure they had a good platform that would allow them to bounce off the hosts.center_img Category is: Stars and Stripes Forever ⭐️🇺🇸Whose patriotic lewk was your favorite? #DragRace pic.twitter.com/Xkwdj0ZkH0— RuPaul’s Drag Race (@RuPaulsDragRace) April 25, 2020First out was Crystal who had thrown together a mish mash of fabrics and prints in red, white and blue complete with a red fedora, blue wig and gorgeous glittery eye make up.  It fit with her hippy aesthetic.  Heidi was next in a sequined short top/dress with red wig and red knee high boots that looked part pageant part Beyonce in Telephone.  Widow brought an interesting twist with a black and white striped body suit with a few giant sparkly, silver stars and a black panthers pose.  Jackie also made a political statement with a red and white striped caftan and a blue starred hijab to show her muslim heritage.  Gigi looked a little costumey for me as she wore a red coat soldier look – fashionably of course.  Sherry gave a street look which was a nice change for her and then came Jaida, or should that be Super J, in her see-through body suit complete with well placed stars and stripes, plus giant shooting star shoulder pads.As Ru and the guest panel gave their critique, Sherry was told to show a different persona in future challenges and Crystal and Heidi were praised for their performances.  Widow got upset and didn’t take her criticism too well feeling like she couldn’t please the judges whatever she did.  Knowing Ru, it was  not a good move for Widow to give back chat.  In contrast, Jackie took criticism for her one-joke Presidential candidate rather well before getting emotional about her  auntie not being able to com to America because of Trump’s travel ban from certain countries.   That’s how you save yourself Widow!Gigi’s outfit excited Carson but the debate performance was a bit frigid.  Jaida received praise for both her look and her Presidential performance with all agreeing she brought the house down.Then came time for Ru to reveal who was top and bottom this week starting with Sherry, Crystal and Heidi being sent to safety.  Jaida was condragulated as this week’s winner (and rightly so) and that left Widow, Jackie and Gigi in the bottom.  Gigi was sent to safety, leaving Widow and Jackie to lip sync to Katy Perry’s Firework. The debate was hosted by Jeff Goldblum and Rachel Bloom and the fun and games began.  Sherry Pie was marginalised again in terms of air time but her cause was about feeding everyone up.  Crystal was all about glitter and had a party mullet going on, clearly playing to her strengths.  Heidi was a sweet, respectable southern Belle; Gigi a fashionista; Widow was stern and fiercesome; Jackie was all about Canada and Jaida was a bitch for the bitches.It’s not the greatest challenge and despite Jeff and Rachel trying to pull it all together, some of it fell flat.  Jackie, who is usually great at these improv comedy challenges seemed to only have one gag (that she was all about Canada) and that quickly became stale.  Plus how did she not use ‘Oh say canada you see’ for her national anthem joke?Gigi also failed to get started.  Her performance was very wooden and unintentionally robotic this time, unlike her brilliant Snatch Game performance.  I still think this competition is hers to lose mind.  Widow took it too literally and was trying to act like a Presidential candidate and unfortunately didn’t have any gags.On the plus side, Jadia played her street ho style candidate well and managed to throw in the art of distraction which played nicely to what most politicians seem to do – avoid the question.  She had Jeff and the other queens laughing along with her.  Personally, I would’ve liked to see more from Heidi.  She acted disgust and shock well when others were talking but didn’t seem to have much to say herself. Widow tried her best but ended up looking a bit pedestrian next to Jackie who won me over straight away by pulling out a plastic bag and chasing it round the stage to the lyric ‘do you ever feel like a plastic bag, blowing through the wind’.  She kept a good balance of comedy and movement going through the song and there could only be one winner.  Jackie was safe and Widow was asked to sashay away.I feel like Widow has had a bit of a journey in this show and hopefully watching it back will make her realise she needs to believe in herself.  As we get closer to the finale my money is still on Gigi for the win but Jaida has definitely elevated herself and could steal it yet.Who do you think will win?  Tell us @EFtelevision.Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 12 is available on Netflix in the UK with new episodes landing each Saturday.Read my Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5,Episode 6, Episode 7 and Episode 8.last_img read more

Laatsch Wills UWF to Overtime Win Over West Georgia

first_img— GoArgos.com — Full Schedule Roster For information on all UWF athletics, visit GoArgos.com. “Being a senior and being a leader, you want to have the ball in your hands,” Laatsch said. “As a senior leader you want to take those shots and I’m happy today and other times this season I was able to make those shots.” Next Game: West Florida dominated on the glass, outrebounding West Georgia by 15 at 51-36. UWF exerted its muscle on the boards early and often by recording 24 first-half rebounds in comparison to UWG’s 12. January 28, 2016 CARROLLTON, Ga. – Momentum had swayed in West Georgia’s favor when Willie Evans drilled a game-tying triple with two seconds remaining in regulation, but Jason Laatsch’s six-point effort in overtime helped lead the UWF men’s basketball team to an 85-80 win on the road on Saturday afternoon. “There’s a lot more maturity and experience this year when it comes to winning close games. Just being able to play together and play as a team has been key for us,” stated Laatsch. UWF, who has played five games in the last nine days, now sees a brief break in action before a Mississippi road trip next weekend. West Florida will play Delta State on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. before heading to Mississippi College for a Saturday tilt at 4:00 p.m.center_img After UWG’s Evans recorded the game-tying basket to end regulation, the Argos built a five-point lead behind a Benson jumper and Laatsch’s fifth triple of the day. Just 51 seconds after Laatsch’s first overtime three-pointer, the senior recorded his career-high sixth three-pointer of the day to give UWF an 84-78 lead. The Argos only allowed four overtime points to seal its third overtime victory of the season. Live Stats BOX SCORE: PDF | HTML at Delta State 2/2/2017 – 7:30 pm The Argos had a season-high six players turn in point totals in double figures, led by Laatsch and Marvin Jones who each had 18. Darryl Tucker recorded his second consecutive and fourth double double of the season with a 10-point, 14-rebound performance, while Deangelo Legrier was just a rebound shy of his own double double with 14 points and nine rebounds. Moter Deng posted 12 points to go along with a season-high 7 rebounds, while Rashaan Benson recorded 11 points and had a team-high five assists. Since starting the conference schedule 0-4, UWF has won eight of its last 10 games and has tied its highest single-season win total since the 2011-12 season. UWF is now 13-6 on the year and sits in fifth place in the Gulf South Conference with an 8-6-league mark. Preview  Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Five questions pondering Joseph, Garcia, others

first_img5. Do we still not appreciate Jim Palmer enough? The Hall of Fame pitcher celebrated the 50th anniversary of his major league debut Friday and he continues to remain a fixture on Orioles telecasts five decades later. As someone who only remembers Palmer the broadcaster, I marvel at his numbers, which included a period of nine times in 10 years from 1969-1978 in which he posted an ERA below 3.00 and at least 4.1 wins above replacement. His 211 complete games, 53 shutouts, and four seasons of 300 or more innings are numbers we don’t even see in video games today. Every Friday, I’ll ponder five topics related to the Orioles or Ravens (or a mix of both).Five questions …1. Does Caleb Joseph make it easy to wait for Matt Wieters to take his time to return? No, I don’t expect the former to continue hitting .375, but it’s difficult to argue how good his defense has been as Orioles pitching posted a 3.00 ERA with him behind the plate in 2014, he threw out 40 percent of runners trying to steal, and his pitch framing rates better than Wieters’ did in either of his his last two full seasons. The question isn’t whether Joseph is better than or as good as the pre-injury Wieters — he’s clearly not — but it remains to be seen if the post-surgery Wieters will be the same defensively and whether he’ll provide enough offense to justify being the undisputed starter if he’s a shell of his old self behind the plate.2. Does Buck Showalter need to figure out exactly what he has with Jason Garcia sooner rather than later? I know the Orioles love the Rule 5 pick’s arm and he has nice potential at age 22, but they can’t afford to carry him if it means they essentially have a 24-man roster. If his arm is special enough to warrant keeping him, he should be able to get some meaningful outs along the way. The early-season struggles of Tommy Hunter and and the rest of the bullpen have magnified the situation, of course, but Showalter needs to be able to use Garcia in some legitimate situations, especially if he’s not going to give the Orioles length in the same way that T.J. McFarland did as a Rule 5 pick in 2013.3. Should third base coaches take more chances around baseball? I thought about this at different times this winter after Kansas City elected not to send Alex Gordon home as the potential tying run in Game 7 of the World Series, and the question returns with Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson drawing the ire of fans with some questionable sends at the start of the season. Historically, a runner standing on third base with two outs will score only 27 percent of the time, but data shows only five percent of runners being sent home from second base on a single with two outs are thrown out at the plate. Yes, that success rate looks great, but how many potential runs are ultimately being stranded at third base to avoid the chance of a runner being thrown out in favor of the potentially lower-percentage chance of the next batter driving him in. Of course, there are many variables involved such as the speed of the runner, the location of the ball, and the arm strength of the fielder, but it’s still interesting to ponder how many potential runs are lost due to the fear of failure and the criticism that a third base coach can face.4. Is the exuberant friendship between Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop a joy to watch? I first watched these two play together when they were at Single-A Frederick in 2011, and it’s scary to think how young both still are with so much untapped potential. Of course, scenes like this don’t hurt, either:last_img read more
