Brett McMurphy Explained How He Broke The Urban Meyer Story

first_imgA closeup of Urban Meyer in an Ohio State windbreaker.PISCATAWAY, NJ – OCTOBER 24: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes during a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at High Point Solutions Stadium on October 24, 2015 in Piscataway, New Jersey. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images)Wednesday, former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy released a report on Facebook, alleging that Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer lied when he said at Big Ten Media Days last week he had no knowledge of 2015 allegations of domestic violence against wide receivers coach Zach Smith. In the time since, McMurphy has made a number of appearances on both television and radio to talk about the case.One of this interviews came Thursday with his former colleague Bruce Feldman. McMurphy was asked exactly how he broke the story, and he divulged all:“He was so cut and dry that he did not know about it. If you guys remember, Monday night, I reported about the 2015 incident and now he’s saying it didn’t happen. I made it up out of thin air. His direct quote was “who would create such a story?”Well, I would create such a story because I had the police documents. So once that happened, what that made me do was made me report more and then follow the breadcrumbs. And here we are waiting to see the ultimate fate of Urban Meyer.…so I guess about a week or two before Big Ten Media Days, I started looking into the Zach Smith domestic violence issues and then I, through a public records request, found the information that I reported at Big Ten Media Days.Basically, I was still trying to report, see what I could find out. You keep making calls, pushing for different things. So when Urban said the quotes on Tuesday, all of a sudden it was like red flags went up. Wait, this doesn’t make sense. Why in the world is he denying this? There’s a police report, etc. I kept reporting, kept looking around. Eventually, I was able to contact Courtney Smith. I tracked her down.I said “I’d like to talk to you.” She agreed to talk to me. The first time I talked to her on the phone we talked for two and a half hours. It was unbelievable details – just everything she had gone through.At that point, this story was the abuse of Zach Smith against her – an ex-wife of the wide receivers coach. At that point, I had no clue what Urban Meyer did or didn’t know.So we talked a couple more times on the phone and I’m trying to write this story. And I basically, I knew as a journalist that I have to talk to her in person. This is not a phone interview.So I flew to Columbus. I spent three days there and I talked to her. I went over every detail that she gave me. I told her “you don’t have to convince me this is accurate. You have to convince everyone out there that’s not going to believe your story.” I need documents, emails, text messages, photos, whatever you have.She provided all of those. She provided all of those. So I went through everything line by line. What date was this sent on? What day did you receive this? What’s this from? Specifically – so there was no misunderstanding. I told her that if she had any information that I could not verify that I was not going to report it.So at that time when I finally was comfortable that I had went through all of these potential – not issues, but made sure I had all my bases covered, because again I don’t have 50 editors looking at this. I’m basically on my own.At that point, and during that process, it hit me with like “holy cow, Urban Meyer knew about this.” But wait, he just said Tuesday he didn’t know about it. So then, the shift of the story changed. That was never my intention.Ultimately, when I was finished reporting it, then Wednesday, that’s when I was ready. I felt comfortable to go with it. And then I reported it on Facebook Wednesday morning.”Now, we wait to see what Ohio State decides on Urban Meyer’s fate. In the meantime, Ryan Day has been named the team’s interim head coach.last_img read more

Executive Director of JCPD, Christine Hendricks, welcomed the partnership in providing much-needed health services to persons with disabilities (PWDs). She said it will also enable the entity to reach persons, who are not yet registered with the cou Story Highlights Persons with disabilities in St. Thomas will benefit from free health services at a health fair on Friday (July 21) at the Yallahs Baptist Church. Persons with disabilities in St. Thomas will benefit from free health services at a health fair on Friday (July 21) at the Yallahs Baptist Church.The event, from 9:00 a.m. to 4: 00 p.m. is being staged by the Dorman family in collaboration with the Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities (JCPD).Services to be provided include medical examinations; blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol checks; hearing tests; and counselling.Executive Director of JCPD, Christine Hendricks, welcomed the partnership in providing much-needed health services to persons with disabilities (PWDs).She said it will also enable the entity to reach persons, who are not yet registered with the council.“JCPD was approached because we are the organisation that would have the majority of the clients with disabilities, so we were more than happy to partner with them because our registration continues. Particularly in the rural areas, there are PWDs who are still not registered, so this is an awesome opportunity for persons with disabilities,” she said.Co-founder of the Dorman family’s We Care Health Fair, Carol Higgins, told JIS News that the family decided to target PWDs this year, because of a family member, who has been disabled due to a recent motor vehicle crash.She informed that another family member died as a result of heart failure.Ms. Higgins said the family is motivated to give back to the St. Thomas community where they grew up.“We know how expensive health care is and all our lives as young children there was a doctor in our community, who always provided free health care to us. We saw the benefit of somebody giving free health care, so we are doing this to support the people,” she said.In addition to the JCPD, a number of other agencies will be on hand to provide services on the day.These include: Early Stimulation Programme (ESP), Programme of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH), Jamaican Association on Intellectual Disabilities, Registrar General’s Department (RGD), National Housing Trust (NHT), Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ), Jamaica Fire Brigade (JFB) and the Bellevue Hospital.The Jamaica Association for the Deaf, Diabetes Association of Jamaica, general practitioners and counsellors will also provide services to the residents.The Dorman family has been hosting the annual health fairs in honour of late family matriarch, Leila Maye Dorman, who passed away in 2004.last_img read more

Building More Energyefficient Homes

first_imgNova Scotians are being encouraged to build more energy-efficient houses. Plans have begun to make energy efficiency and water conservation standards part of the provincial building code before the end of this year. As a result, new energy efficiency levels will be required for several programs. “Building an energy-efficient home is a good choice for any homeowner,” said Barry Barnet, Minister responsible for Conserve Nova Scotia. “Homes that use less energy save homeowners money and protect the environment.” The energy rating of a house is based on an EnerGuide scale of 1 to 100. The higher the rating, the more efficient the home. The proposed changes to the building code will require that new houses meet minimum insulation and efficiency standards, or achieve a minimum EnerGuide 80 rating. For homeowners to qualify for rebates, their homes must reach higher EnerGuide ratings. Starting April 1, the EnerGuide for New Houses rating will increase from 77 to 80 for the $250 rebate. To receive an additional $500 rebate, a home has to have an EnerGuide rating of at least 83, up from 80. This makes up to $750 available for building a more energy-efficient home. The EnerGuide rating for the R-2000 program will also increase from an 80 to an 83. R-2000 homes enrolled after April 1, that achieve an EnerGuide rating of 83, will receive a $1,000 rebate. “People are looking for new homes that are more energy efficient,” said Paul Pettipas, chief executive officer, Nova Scotia Home Builders Association. “By building more energy-efficient homes today, we’re working toward a cleaner, greener tomorrow.” Under the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act, Nova Scotia has a goal of reducing greenhouse-gas emissions by 2020 to at least 10 per cent below 1990 levels. Call Conserve Nova Scotia at 1-800-670-4636 or visit www.conservens.ca to find out how you can have building plans evaluated, or to register a R-2000 home.last_img read more

Migratory birds of prey to be protected by UNbacked agreement

23 October 2008A new United Nations-backed agreement that aims to protect migratory birds of prey in Africa and Eurasia has been signed in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates by 28 countries and will enter into force at the end of next week. Working through the UN Environment Programme’s (UNEP) Convention on Migratory Species (CMS), the governments of the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates have led the negotiations on the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), resulting in the signatories yesterday.The new agreement area stretches across more than 130 countries from the African, Afrotropical, Palaearctic and Indo-Malayan realms and protects more than 70 species of migratory birds of prey including Falconiformes, ospreys, eagles and owls.More than 50 per cent of migratory birds of prey have poor conservation status as a result of habitat loss due to agriculture, forestry, industry and fisheries, collisions with power lines, hunting and trapping for falconry, according to a UNEP press release issued today.Signatories to the new agreement – which enters into force on 1 November – are committed to restoring positive conservation status of migratory birds of prey and protecting such bird species from illegal killing, including poisoning and shooting and unsustainable exploitation.To promote and monitor the new agreement an extra CMS coordinating unit of six staff will be established in Abu Dhabi as a UNEP initiative.“The establishment of this tri-continental agreement for birds of prey, with a coordinating unit in Abu Dhabi, UAE, marks a new era for the Convention,” stated the Chairman of the meeting Professor Colin Galbraith. “Here is the Gulf, at the crossroads of migration and culture, we have a chance to establish a new UN base for wildlife conservation.”The action plan foresees collective efforts for more research on species ecology and migratory behaviour, patterns and routes as well as data analysis. read more

Philippines UNESCO chief condemns murder of journalist

Roger Mariano, of DZJC-Aksyon Radio was shot dead by unknown assailants in Laoag City, in the north of the Philippines on 31 July shortly after leaving the radio station. He is the 46th journalist to be assassinated since the restoration of democracy in 1986. “It is essential that the perpetrators of this cowardly act be brought to justice,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said, noting that the murder “appears to be a cold blooded attempt to silence a critical voice. “The link between a free and independent press and democracy cannot be overstated. Intimidation and murder of journalists is therefore a crime against society as a whole, not just against the individuals targeted,” he concluded. Earlier this year Mr. Matsuura drew attention to what he called “a sharp increase in the number of journalists killed over the past year, despite the efforts of the authorities to fight these crimes.” Seven journalists were reported to have been killed in the country in 2003, the worst year for the profession there since 1986. read more

Buchanan Rola march on for Ohio State tennis

Most of he Ohio State men’s tennis team might already be back in Columbus after its weekend loss against UCLA, but two members of the team are still on the road chasing national championship dreams. The No. 5-seeded Buckeyes were eliminated by No. 4 UCLA Saturday, 4-2, but senior Chase Buchanan and sophomore Blaz Rola remain in Athens, Ga., to compete in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships. Rola and Buchanan received at-large selections for the singles tournament and, after posting a 30-4 record in doubles matches this season, will also team up for the doubles championship. NCAA Singles and Doubles Championship action begins Wednesday in Athens at the University of Georgia’s Dan Magill Tennis Complex and will last throughout the day. “We would like to be playing in the Final Four but it wasn’t in the cards for us,” said OSU coach Ty Tucker. “There was no shame losing to UCLA. We needed to be about 5 percent better in every spot.” The Buckeyes finished the season with a 34-4 overall record and their quarterfinal berth marked their seventh consecutive NCAA quarterfinal appearance. After Buchanan and Rola’s loss Saturday, the top-ranked doubles pair in the nation dropped an 8-6 decision to the No. 44-ranked doubles team from UCLA, made up of redshirt junior Alex Brigham and sophomore Adrien Puget. Buchanan said while the loss was disappointing, the best thing to do is move on. “You try to forget about it. You can’t take it too hard,” he said. “It was tough playing as my last time with the team, but I’m looking forward to the opportunity to play with Blaz.” For the senior, looking forward was a bit easier than for the sophomore from Slovenia. “It’s been tough. I didn’t regroup yesterday (Monday),” Rola said. “Not at dinner, I couldn’t talk in the press conference, but I slept through it – thank God – and I have some time to get ready.” Tucker said both players have good momentum after the loss and Buchanan said he is preparing for his final opportunity to leave a lasting impression on the program. “Mentally and physically, I have prepared all season. I took a day off yesterday,” he said. “There’s a lot of great teams and we need to prepare hard and take everyone seriously so we can come out on top.” Though both players said they are sad to compete for the last time together, the nation’s top-seeded doubles pairing agreed they are still excited for the task ahead. “It’s a great feeling to be the first seed, but I never go into a match thinking we’re No. 1 in the country,” Rola said. “Maybe I should, but I stay humble to keep the pressure away.” Both players said they welcome the challenges presented by the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, as well. “This atmosphere is intense,” Rola said. “It’s unbelievable. (It’s) the best place to play in college tennis.” read more

Even leaders dont know when Khaleda will return

first_imgKhaleda ZiaSenior leaders of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) are not sure when the party chairperson Khaleda Zia, now in London with her son, will return home.Khaleda’s personal secretary ABM Abdus Sattar, now staying with her in the United Kingdom, however, said the BNP chairperson may return in the third week of this month.”Her treatment is yet to be done. We hope she will return home after her treatment by the end of October,” Abdus Sattar told Prothom Alo on Thursday over phone.The BNP chief has been in London since 15 July for medical treatment. She is staying at her elder son Tarique Rahman’s house in London.Party leaders said Khaleda is taking treatment in her eye and leg in London.Ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) leaders, however, alleged that she is hatching ‘conspiracy’ staying in London.Staying in London for more than two and a half months, Khaleda did not participate in any political programme.After Khaleda’s arrival, the BNP will present the framework of a supportive election-time government and has plans to take to the street for the supportive government.In Khaleda’s absence, BNP leaders were seen delivering speeches on various issues including Rohingya refugees, chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha’s one-month leave, and so on.About Khaleda’s return, BNP standing committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain said he does not know when Khaleda will return home.He told Prothom Alo, “Organisational works are going on smoothly even in the absence of the party chairperson. She gives the party leaders necessary instructions from London. Sometimes BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir takes decision. We, too, highlight the party’s position after conduction meetings.”The senior vice chairman of the party, Tarique, has been living in the UK since 2008.last_img read more

HighSpeed Rail Project Moves Forward But Not Everyone Is Happy About It

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /01:07 Texas Central Railway says it’s now secured options to buy about 30% of the land it needs along the proposed corridor.  It also says it will no longer seek court orders to access private property for land surveys.We spoke with Holly Reed, Texas Central’s Managing Director of External Affairs.“Our approach with landowners which is very open and collaborative and personal, is working,” says Reed.But the project remains controversial, especially in Grimes and Waller counties, where the company says it has purchase options for about 50% of the required property. Texas Central also maintains it has the authority like other railroads to use eminent domain but will only use it as a last resort.Grimes County Judge Ben Leman questions whether Texas Central is actually a railroad that can use that authority because it doesn’t yet have tracks or equipment.“If you’re not currently a railroad that has been vetted through the process, then you need to go through a normal process,” states Leman.  Texas Central had hoped to start construction on the high-speed line in 2018. Now the company says it’s waiting for a draft environmental decision before announcing that date.  Sharelast_img read more

first_imgBank of Cyprus and Deloitte programme to aid aspiring entrepreneurs Accelerator Aris, A Really Inspiring Space, has grown with the addition of another team.The latest team, Exal is about developing a decentralised e-commerce platform for small and medium enterprises backed-up by blockchain.For this, as for its other six teams, Deloitte and the Bank of Cyprus provide support not only with offices but with their advice and guidance.In this case, Deloitte Moscow is mentoring Exal to facilitate the successful launch of their product, because, as Monica Ioannidou, Aris director and head of Deloitte’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centre, put it “we provide expertise, and when we can’t find it locally we find it from abroad.”The Moscow branch has worked with blockchain for ten years, she explained.Most times, the residents will get enough from the local team, which is based in a Limassol office.“We are a dedicated team which provides office space and everyday assistance,” Ioannidou said.The accelerator, so-called because it shortens the time a new business venture takes from an idea to a product, works with participants whose ideas are innovative and connected to technology.At the moment, teams are involved in projects such as geological tourism, shipping and e-commerce.There is no deadline, but an ongoing call for applications. “We encourage more teams to join. We are selective, but when we have accepted a team we keep supporting it. As projects need to be market relevant we help finding investors and customers with the expertise of our company and the bank,” the director said.Teams are of two to five persons, one of whom must be present in the office every day.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
