Aung san suu kyi Release

Aung san suu kyi Release - Aung San Suu Kyi is ''certain'' to be freed from house arrest today, military sources in Burma have said.

The news of her imminent release comes as the military junta that jailed her claimed a crushing election win.

Expectation, domestic and international, has been building for months that Ms Suu Kyi, Burma's most famous democracy campaigner and the junta's bete noire, would be freed after seven years in detention.

The Nobel peace laureate has spent 15 of the past 21 years in some form of incarceration.

''The authorities will release her. It is certain,'' a government official was quoted as saying yesterday. Another official told Agence France-Presse: ''She will be released for sure as planned. We are just waiting for the time to release her.''

In Rangoon yesterday truckloads of armed police in riot gear were massing at points around the city, including the Shwedagon Pagoda and government buildings. It appears the government is preparing troops to be on the streets if mass protests break out.

Win Tin, a senior member of Ms Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy, said her supporters were already planning for her release today. ''We are very confident.''

Fracking Creates A Stir

Fracking Creates A Stir - Residents of Lake Township heard a rather upsetting news this Wednesday when Supervisor Amy Salansky announced after a township meeting that the residents will have to face even louder noises in the days to come due to fracking. She told the media that EnCana Oil and Gas has already started the process on the land which is owned by her and her husband. The process of fracking involves forcing large amount of water mixed with chemicals and sand to force the natural gas out. Amy Salansky said that EnCana has confirmed that they will only frack during the day. She also said that the truck traffic in the area of the Salanksy Well off Zosh road will increase as fracking requires a lot of fresh water which will be carried in trucks to the location. She also said that she could not confirm the exact number of trucks as EnCana had ‘downsized’ on the horizontal drilling.

She added that they drilled only 2500 feet instead of the expected 6000 but she was not sure of the reason. In Pennsylvania, fracking continues to create controversy as the latest laws have taken away the rights of the local communities to prevent fracking in any of the areas. Earlier the communities had made land use zoning to keep the drilling companies out. Several bodies have raised questions about the process’ environmental effects.

The communities of Licking Township, however, chose to defy the laws of the state and banned corporations from dumping fracking waste water in the township. Mik Robertson, chairman of the Licking Township Supervisors, said in a statement that the local community was the best judge in such matters as they feel the impact of the actions most acutely.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens - Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed walked out of the locker room with a parting shot late Thursday night. With his luggage in hand, Reed, unprovoked, had a message for the media before exiting the Georgia Dome.

"We let them off the hook," Reed said loudly to make sure everyone could hear.

"We" was the Ravens' defense, which has been one of the most consistently dominant units of the past decade. "Them" was the Atlanta Falcons, which improved to 7-2 after an exciting -- and some would say controversial -- 26-21 victory over Baltimore (6-3). In what was viewed as a possible Super Bowl preview, neither team disappointed as each club held the lead in the final minute.

The difference was the Falcons' last offensive drive, where they marched 80 yards in 45 seconds against a Ravens' defense that had snuffed out those scenarios many times before. A 33-yard touchdown catch by Falcons receiver Roddy White over Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson sealed the game for Atlanta.

Wilson argued vehemently with the referees that he was pushed but no flag was thrown.

"I was playing coverage, man, and I guess it's tough to play good coverage in this league," said Wilson. "I don't know. I can't call it."

The Ravens have felt they were on the short end of calls or no-calls before. But the overriding theme in the locker room this time was that they missed chances to make key stops.

"They made the plays at the end and we didn't," Ravens cornerback Chris Carr said bluntly. "It was a very difficult loss. With our defense we figured that we would stop them."

Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons - While it wasn't Atlanta Falcons 2008 NFL 1st Round Draft pick QB Matt Ryan's best statistical game (in BCSsportsweekly photo), that was the 39 to 32 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Falcons 26 to 21 win over the AFC Baltimore Ravens at The Georgia Dome in Atlanta was the game many can point to where Ryan came of age.

Down by 6 points with just over 1 minute in the game, Ryan directed an 80 yard drive, capped with a 35 yard pass to Falcons Wide Receiver Rodney White for the go-ahead score.

The Falcons came in with an excellent game plan that featured quick passes out of shotgun formations, and play action. They threw a whopping 50 times, completing 32, for 316 yards and three touchdowns, against no interceptions. Ryan finished with a quarterback rating of 101.8, and sent a message.

For teams that believed they could load up their defense to stop the Falcons ground game, and place the ball in the hands of Ryan, the message was simple: he will beat you. Ryan showed an ice-cool calm, and seemed to welcome the 4th quarter situation he was placed in.

Dave Niehaus Hall Of Famer

Dave Niehaus Hall Of Famer - Many of us never met him. But, for years, each night we invited him into our home to share our baseball experience. He rode with us in our cars, keeping us company. He attended family barbecues on warm summer nights. And, last night as each of us heard of his passing, we all felt as though we lost a dear friend.

Dave Niehaus, the voice of the Seattle Mariners since the franchise's inception, a man who broadcast over 5000 games and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008, passed away yesterday after suffering a heart attack.

He is known for having made so many memorable calls. His calls have become household clich├ęs all over the Pacific Northwest. Mariner fans celebrate a "Grand Salami," or watch fly-balls "Fly Away" over the outfield fence. Some of us express our satisfaction after a great play with a simple "My Oh My." When I think of Dave Niehaus' great, poetic calls, three specific calls stand out to me.

1. The Double (10/8/1995)--probably Niehaus' most popular call, "The Double" was the capstone of the great 1995 playoff run. It was Game 5 of the 1995 ALDS, at the Kingdome, in front of 57,411 rabid Mariner fans. The Yankees sent David Cone to the mound to take on Andy Benes. The Mariners scored two runs in the 8th inning to even the score 4-4. In the top of the 9th inning, Norm Charlton, who had taken over with 2 outs in the 7th, was still on the mound for the Mariners. He gave up a double and a walk to begin the inning, and Lou Piniella decided to bring in Randy Johnson out of the bullpen. The Big Unit wiggled out of the jam in the top of the 9th without allowing a run. Neither team was able to score in the 9th or the 10th. So, the game went to the 11th, where the Unit issued a leadoff walk that ultimately came around to score after a sacrifice bunt and a single.
