timberland wiki built North American Mustang

One of the finest American fighter aircraft of World War II, the North American Mustang owed its origin to a RAF specification for a single seat fighter to replace the Curtiss P 40s. The first flight of the prototype NA 73 occurred in October 40. Production models reached the RAF in November 41 and these aircraft became known as Mustang Mk I (P 51) and Mk II (P 51A).

The original 1,150 hp Allison engine lacked performance at high altitude, and the RAF employed the early Mustangs on low level armed tactical reconnaissance sorties. Meantime, the USAAF ordered a limited number of P 51s and P 51As as the Apache, a tentative name which was later cancelled.

The aircraft’s potential appeared promising and RAF Mustangs Mk III (P 51B, P 51C and F 6) and Mk IV (P 51D) was the most widely produced version and 8,956 were built. Interesting developments of the Mustang included the XP 51F and XP 51G lightweight versions and, the fastest Mustang of all, the P 51 H with a top speed of 487 mph at 25,000 ft.

The ultimate development occurred, post war, when two Mustang fuselages were joined resulting in the USAAF F 82 Twin Mustang.

Keith Meggs comments: This was in fact a new design with a close relationship to the P 51 H

In Nov 44, RAF serialled Mustangs were first flown by the RAAF’s No 3 Sqdn in Italy.

In 1943, the Australian Government arranged for the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) to manufacture the Mustang Mk IV (P 51D) under licence from North American Aviation. The RAAF urgently needed a new fighter, and so the first CAC Mustangs were built mainly from imported semi finished parts.

A prototype Mustang, A68 1001 was used for development trials and the first Australian production Mustang, A68 1, flew on 29 April 45. This aircraft was handed over to the RAAF on 4 June 45 and was used for trials by No 1 APU until October 46. It was placed in storage until 1953 when it was delivered to the Department of Supply at Woomera.

The first 80 Mustang 20s (A68 1/80) were delivered with Packard Merlin V 1650 3 engines, under the CA 17 designation. A second contract called for 170 improved Mustangs, but only 120 were completed. Known as CA 18, the first 40 were built as Mustang 21s (A68 81/120) with Packard Merlin V 1650 7 engines.

The remaining CA 18s comprised 14 Mustang 22s (A68 187/200) with Packard Merlin V 1650 7 engines. A CA 21 contract for a further 250 Mustangs was cancelled and, in lieu of the remaining CA 18s and CA 21s, 298 lend lease P 51Ds and Ks were taken on strength (A68 500/583 and A68 600/813).

Keith Meggs comments: The 298 lend lease P 51Ds and Ks were imported were in service long before the later contracts were cancelled.

In addition, the RAAF also accepted Mustangs for the Netherland East Indies Air Force (N3 600/640). Produced too late for World War II, RAAF Mustangs were assigned to Japan for occupation duties and, early in 1946, No 76, 77 and 82 Sqdns flew into Iwakuni.

Keith Meggs comments: Only imported Mustangs were sent to Japan, until 4 or 5 CAC aircraft were sent to 77 Sqdn early in 1951

In 1949 Nos 76 and 82 Sqdns withdrew to Australia and the Mustangs of 77 Sqdn remained to take part in the Korean War from June 1950 until April 1951, when they were replaced by Gloster Meteors. In Australia, Mustangs remained in service with CAF Sqdns until they were withdrawn from service in 1959.

Keith Meggs comments: The first 77 Sqdn mission was in fact on July 3, 1950

TECHNICAL DATA (CA 18 Mustang Mk 21)

WEIGHTS: Empty, 7,000 lb; loaded, 11,600 lb.

PERFORMANCE: Max speed, 437 mph at 25,000 ft. Climb, 13 mins/30,000 ft. Service ceiling 41,900 ft. Range, 950 miles normal/1,700 miles max.

ARMAMENT: Six 0.50 calibre guns; two 1,000 lb. bombs or up to 10 rockets.

“The Squadrons Mustangs were used extensively in the close support and interdiction roles, striking Communist targets both south and north of the 38th parallel. In April 1951 77 Squadron was re equipped with Meteor jet fighters. The Australians gained their first confirmed MiG “kill” on 1 December when twelve Meteors were engaged by over fifty MiG 15s over Pyongyang. For the destruction of one MiG the squadron lost three Meteors with a further two damaged.

This encounter highlighted the MiG’s superiority in aerial combat, and as a result, the Meteor’s were confined to ground attack operations. In this role, the Meteors took a considerable toll on North Korean and Chinese ground forces, however, the Squadron suffered heavily at the hands of the MiG’s and anti aircraft units. By the end of hostilities in July 1953, 76 squadron had lost thirty eight aircrew, with another seven captured by the enemy.”The F 82 was not the only Mustang to serve in Korea. The old P 51D, by then redesignated F 51D, fought with distinction, back in the original Mustang assignment of “mudfighter”. After the end of WW II, piston engine fighters were rapidly phased out of front line service in favor of new jet fighters, such as the P 80 Shooting Star.

Keith Meggs comments: The F 82 ‘Twin Mustang’ was only a minor player. It was used as a nightfighter on a ‘one off’ basis flying from USAF bases in Japan . The P 51 was the most numerous aircraft in use overall

The USAAF retained a few squadrons of P 51Hs, but the older P 51Ds were passed on to the Air National Guard (ANG). As late as 1952, the ANG would still have 68 squadrons flying the Mustang, though the last of them would be gone in 1957. Most of the remaining Mustangs were either sold to foreign operators or scrapped.

In the early summer of 1950, the USAF had three fighter groups operating in Japan that had converted from the F 51D to the F 80, and the old F 51Ds were sitting in storage, waiting to be scrapped. When the war broke out on 25 June, the USAF realized that the F 51Ds were what was needed to help stem the North Korean offensive.

“I wanted to get as far away from my home as possible,” he says. “I ended up in Boston. I was aiming for New York or Los Angeles, but I had a friend moving to Boston and it was just easier to move with a buddy. I started doing comedy there.”

He wound up back in Wisconsin last year, staying at his parent’s house for an extended period of time, recovering from an injury suffered while hiking with friends in Arizona.

Finding a place to climb though was difficult due to wildfires in Arizona. While hiking, Mauss and his friends came across an area that afforded them a chance to do it. “I misjudged the height of something,” he adds. “I had jumped off much higher things, but the angle was weird, and I was wearing bad shoes.”

Mauss wound up writing an entire hour about the experience, though he was reluctant to do so at first. “As far as I was concerned, I didn’t want to be writing jokes about my broken feet,” he says. “I didn’t really care to be using my injury as inspiration, but it was kind of unavoidable because I was on crutches out onstage so I had to talk about why I was on crutches.”

The situation forced him to alter his usual writing process,
timberland outlet stores Building a Set on Two Broken Feet
too. “At the time the injury was just a pain in the ass. It was the hardest I’ve ever tried to write material.”

Normally, Mauss will just write down observations and experiences as they happen. “When stuff comes to me, I just write it up. But with this I was like, ‘What’s funny about broken feet?’ It turned out to be a monster and it took over my whole act and turned into roughly an hour of material.”

Not only did the injury itself turn out to be a source of material, but the subsequent recovery and repeated medical procedures were as well. Just when he thought his mending was well on track, complications developed.

“One of the heels started swelling, and in December I started getting a fever.” His doctors told him that the hardware in his feet was likely infected. “It was such a nightmare situation,” he says. “I was on the road at the time. I was paying for my post operative care out of pocket in Wisconsin, just so I could get it there because my insurance is in California.”

The procedure would have to be done back in Los Angeles. “So, I had to go back to California or it wouldn’t be covered.” Mauss wound up canceling a string of dates and driving from Cleveland to Los Angeles. “It’s a 32 hour drive and I had 40 hours to do it.” After a stop for gas, he looked at his GPS which indicated it was a straight shot to Southern California, and informed him the next turn he had to make was in 1250 miles. “I’ll look out for that,” he laughs.

The promotion, which is part of the sports apparel giant’s NikeID campaign, lets passersby with a cell phone to call a toll free number to access the technology and use the dial pad to choose aspects of a sneaker they prefer and build it in real time on the sign.

“The more you allow people to stop what they are doing and interact with a brand, the better it’s going to be,” said John Mayo Smith, vice president of technology at R/GA, the interactive agency that handled the campaign. “But just as important, the people who are watching the sign are getting a brand experience, too.”

“It fits in well with the other kinds of marketing that go on in that part of Manhattan,” such as the Today Show’s live broadcasts from Rockefeller Center, visible to all who pass, said Joe Wilcox, senior analyst at online market research firm Jupiter Research.

The effort also makes good use of proven technologies, he pointed out, like using a mobile phone to make a call and the key pad to design the shoe. “Too often there’s this newfangled approach to emerging technology, and people try to use what doesn’t really work well.”

timberland chelsea boots for men Buick bets big on March Madness marketing

timberland laces Buick bets big on March Madness marketing

“We were looking for a high profile platform large enough to build on the momentum we’ve already established in the marketplace,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of marketing for Buick. “These are the right customers for Buick,” he said. “The NCAA audience is affluent and highly educated.”

Buick steps into a void left by Pontiac, which was an NCAA sponsor before the brand was terminated in 2009. marketing.

“If we’re a brand that enables and inspires and celebrates human achievement, boy, that’s March Madness at its core,” Perry said.

The marketing deal goes beyond basketball, though, and will include college football, women’s soccer and the Frozen Four hockey tournament.

As part of the NCAA sponsorship, Buick will air commercials that profile former college athletes’ charitable pursuits. One will tell the story of Emmanuel Ohonme, a former University of North Dakota basketball player and Africa native who started a charity that has provided shoes to 3 million children in 40 countries.

That series of commercials will air during the basketball tournament. Other athletes whose charitable works will be shown include Gabe Lewullis, a former Princeton University basketball star and surgeon who’s involved in a charity that supports middle and high school athletics, and Sean James, a track and football star at Southern Missouri State University who started a foundation that offers scholarships to student athletes.

In addition, on April 2, before the basketball finals, Buick will sponsor a 30 minute TV show devoted to the topic of athletes’ charities.

The sponsorship marks the first big Buick push since GM overhauled its marketing department last year.

Under Joel Ewanick, GM’s global marketing chief, the automaker has resumed advertising and sponsorship ties with major events such as the Super Bowl and World Series.

Perry is following the playbook from his brief stint as Chevrolet marketing chief last year, when he used the World Series to launch the “Chevy runs deep” image campaign.

During the men’s basketball Final Four next month, Buick will run a 60 second anthem commercial that will aim to create an emotional tie between the brand and its customers.

“We really haven’t done a good job the last several years to establish the Buick brand,” Perry said. “This is really our first phase of that, during the March Madness, to kind of establish what Buick stands for.”

To set it apart from Cadillac, Perry described Buick as “approachable luxury,” with “comfortable, refined, confident performance.” He said it’s for an audience that considers itself “inclusive,” wanting “to be part of the community, rather than above their community.”The NCAA sponsorship is another move by Buick to appeal to younger buyers. The average age of Buick drivers has dropped to 67 last year from 70 in 2009, according to Strategic Vision Inc., a San Diego research firm.

Buick recently began airing TV commercials for the Regal sedan with a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine. The spot shows a driver who looks to be in his 20s zipping along a hilly road with a voiceover that says: “Turbo. Buick. Don’t worry, you’ll get used to the sound of it.”

timberland shoes for kids Buffalo State students hear tips on finding a job in fashion industry

While Americans account for 5 percent of the world’s population, they wear 25 percent of its clothes and shoes.

And while 97 percent of the apparel and 98 percent of the footwear are made outside of the country, the industry still employs 4 million Americans and contributes $350 billion in annual sales to the American economy. auto industry,” Kevin Burke, president of the American Apparel and Footwear Association, pointed out as he shared industry facts and job hunting tips Tuesday with students from SUNY Buffalo State’s fashion and textile technology program.

“This, to me, is the future of the industry I represent,” he told the students, as he took in the classroom so packed that some students stood and sat on the floor.

About 100 students from the program attended the talk in the Technology Building. Burke, a 1979 graduate of Brockport State, spoke about the goal and role of the AAFA, the national trade association that represents 1,000 major brands.

Last year alone, Americans bought 2 billion garments and 2 billion pairs of shoes. The average American purchased 62 garments and almost seven pairs of shoes, Burke said.

China remains the No. 1 manufacturer of apparel and shoes, with $30 billion or 42 percent of apparel and $166 billion,
timberland hat Buffalo State students hear tips on finding a job in fashion industry
or 84 percent, of footwear, made there.

But Burke said labor costs and workforce shortages in China are making it less attractive to brands and retailers. Vietnam, Bangladesh, Indonesia and some Central American countries are also suppliers of clothing and footwear.

About 4 million Americans are employed directly by the industry, in positions such as designers, textile mill workers, retail floor associates and marketing professionals.

“It’s never easy finding a job in this business,” Burke told the students. “The competition is fierce.”

Buffalo State’s fashion and textile technology program is the only area baccalaureate program geared toward the fashion industry. Burke said students graduating next spring will be competing with 90,000 other fashion industry graduates from across the country.

“You have to put yourself in the best position,” he said. Starting out, he said, they will most likely work as paid interns without benefits. “It’s not pretty, but it’s the world you want to enter,” Burke said.

He encouraged students to learn Spanish if they plan to work in this in hemisphere, and be familiar with legislation and regulations, which will impress prospective employers,

timberland boots for kids Buffalo man takes plea in fatal shooting over stolen sneakers

timberland boots on sale Buffalo man takes plea in fatal shooting over stolen sneakers

The double shooting on East Amherst Street last September stood out, even in a month that saw more than its share of gunfire.

A man was found shot in his minivan. He died soon after police arrived. Another victim, 20 years younger, was just inside a neighborhood store. He was shot in the back and needed help.

Police and prosecutors know exactly who shot the two men they shot each other. But no one is being charged for pulling the trigger that day. It made for some cryptic proceedings this week in State Supreme Court.

Javaughn Hogue, 19, was wounded last Sept. 14 when 39 year old Saeed Moore was shot and killed. On Wednesday, events of the day caught up with him as Hogue pleaded guilty to a second degree robbery that happened earlier that day and to criminal possession of a weapon a gun he was carrying later.

In accepting the plea, Justice Russell P. Buscaglia carefully worded his questions to Hogue about when he had the illegal weapon and where that weapon may have been when the shooting occurred. The judge didn’t go any further, however, because a grand jury in December declined to indict anyone in the death of Moore, the man who died in the minivan.

Attorneys involved on both sides of the case agree on the fundamentals of what happened.

The violence started with a pair of sneakers.

Earlier in the day last Sept. 14, Hogue and a friend accosted another teen and ran off with his shoes each taking one sneaker.

Hogue went home with the sneaker he had grabbed from Kalon Moore, Saeed Moore’s son. In Hogue’s mind, it was more a gag than a robbery, because what was he going to do with one sneaker?

The younger Moore wasn’t laughing. He contacted Hogue they knew each other and said Hogue better bring his shoes back. According to Hogue’s attorney, Thomas Eoannou, Moore also may have made some threats threats that seemed serious enough to Hogue that he decided to take a gun with him before he left to meet the other teen near a neighborhood store.

Hogue knew something about threats and violence. His father, Robert Hogue, was killed when Javaughn was 12 he was shot to death in a Bailey Avenue storefront he was working on. No one was ever charged in that case.

Kalon Moore knew about violent death, too. Saeed Moore shot and killed his own identical twin brother, Sadat Moore, in 2005, during an argument over a car. Saeed Moore pleaded guilty to second degree manslaughter and spent nearly seven years in prison.

But by Sept. 14, Saeed Moore was a free man, and that day he also was an angry one. He went with his son to a spot near the corner of Parkridge Avenue and East Amherst Street to get the sneakers back and possibly to teach someone a lesson.

When Hogue showed up with the shoe, the elder Moore reportedly grabbed it and used it to batter Hogue while demanding he come up with its mate.

It could have stopped there, with a bruising for a bruising.

Instead, at some point in the confrontation, Saeed Moore also pulled out a gun.

Moore then ordered Hogue around the side of a building and, pointing the gun at his head, ordered him to his knees while threatening to kill him.

Hogue, terrified, expected to die until Saeed Moore turned, briefly, to order his son to get in their car.

Hogue slipped his own weapon into his hand and fired upward before frantically racing away. The wounded Moore shot Hogue once in the back before climbing into the driver’s seat of his minivan and trying to drive away.

Hogue, meanwhile, made it to the nearby store.

When police arrived, they found the minivan crashed into a fence a short distance away. Despite the efforts of emergency responders, Moore died at the scene.

Hogue, seriously injured, was taken to Erie County Medical Center and recovered, although he still carries the bullet in his back. Two weeks after the shootings, he was arrested.

Hogue can expect to receive a prison term of three and a half years when he is sentenced April 13. Because of the grand jury’s no bill in the death of Saeed Moore, the case is not classified as a homicide.

sale timberland boots Buffalo lawyer brings depression out of the darkness

timberland work boots on sale Buffalo lawyer brings depression out of the darkness

You get to be 40 and you figure you’ve outrun your past.

A father who used booze to drown stresses endured in the Pacific during World War II, who was tough on his five kids and died at age 56, when you were just 19.

Yet here was Dan Lukasik, a successful Buffalo attorney, father and husband, struggling with sleep. Straining to focus as managing partner of a law firm he helped start. Pulling into quiet parking lots to cry for up to an hour at a time behind the wheel of his car.

“It didn’t provide any relief,” he said of the tears. “I didn’t understand what was happening to me.”

Lukasik had slipped into his first bout of clinical depression, a debilitating condition that can strike anyone, anytime, from childhood into old age. It discomfited his parents, and now was raining down on his life.

“It’s like crossing the border of another country,” Lukasik said. “You enter this land that is devoid of joy, that is very painful. It feels like a physical thing. It does not feel like an emotional thing. The worst part of it is a lot of people don’t feel anything.”

Lukasik was hardly alone. Depression will endanger 1 in 3 Americans at some point during their lives and 1 in 5 in any given year. In half of those cases, it comes with anxiety. In many cases, substance abuse becomes part of its damaging force.

Lukasik and other Western New York mental health experts want those caught in the worst of depression’s grip to know this: They do not suffer alone, help is available, things can get a whole lot better and there is a roadmap to recovery and good mental health that includes the following steps.

Dan Lukasik, who struggled for years with crippling symptoms of depression, got help and manages his illness with a variety of strategies.

“Identifying and recognizing the signs are a good first step,” said Lukasik, now 55 and one among many who let symptoms fester for years, even decades.

“There’s many, many people out there with a mental health condition who haven’t sought treatment,” Erie County Mental Health Commissioner Michael Ranney said. “Either they haven’t recognized it, it hasn’t affected them significantly enough or they’re afraid to get help because of the stigma attached. It’s fairly normal to have some sad and anxious feelings, but if they’ve lasted a while and they’ve affected your functioning, that’s when people need to think about getting help.”Lifetime risk of depression is about 1 in 3, meaning about 400,000 people in Western New York will experience it at some point. 43.8 million people experiences mental illness in a given year. Others include:

Fatigue and lack of energy

Unwarranted, but intense feelings of worthlessness and guilt

Difficulty concentrating and making decisions

Moving more slowly, becoming easily agitated, or both

Having a hard time sleeping or sleeping too much

Loss of interest in eating or eating too muchThinking about death or wishing to be dead

Lukasik felt many of these feelings for years before they became unbearable.

“It was a cumulative effect,” he said. “Depression often doesn’t come out of the blue for people. There’s footprints left genetically and from experiences people have had.”

District Judge William M. Skretny, the same judge who oversaw his trial, pointed to his upcoming Supreme Court case and the possibility that his only felony conviction might be reversed.

Skretny’s ruling came just a week after federal prosecutors agreed not to oppose Marinello’s release.

For the former small business owner, now 70, the developments of the past few weeks are an acknowledgement of why he spent five years fighting the government, according to his lawyer, Joseph M. LaTona.

They also said the criminal case “cleared a garden path for prosecutorial abuse.”

Judges warn of ‘prosecutorial abuse’ if Buffalo IRS ruling stands

“Too much power. Too much discretion,” LaTona said. “No prosecutor should be able to indict a taxpayer because they don’t like the records they keep.”

Marinello, owner of a small courier service, was convicted in 2014 of obstructing the IRS. The verdict hinged, in part, on the government’s contention that years of sloppy record keeping was grounds enough to convict him.

The jury also found Marinello guilty of several counts of tax evasion, all misdemeanors. He was sentenced to a year in prison on those lesser charges and, because of the one felony obstruction charge, a total of three years in prison.

“He’s already served his time for the misdemeanors,” LaTona said.

Even Marinello admits his business records were inadequate, and that he was lax in filing tax returns. He also acknowledges destroying bank statements and commingling business income and personal expenses.

In his defense,
timberland boots for babies Buffalo businessman freed from prison
he argued, his sole focus at the time was on building his company, Express Courier Group/Buffalo Inc.

LaTona, in his petition to the Supreme Court, said his client’s appeal raises the question, should poor bookkeeping land you to prison?

In ordering Marinello’s release, Skretny pointed to the “substantial question of law” raised by his appeal to the nation’s highest court.

The court’s decision came after eight of the 10 judges on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals who heard Marinello’s case agreed with the jury verdict. They also found that Marinello did not have to be aware of the IRS investigation into his business in order to obstruct or impede the agency.

Two other judges disagreed and, in their dissents, warned of the potential consequences to taxpayers. Circuit Judge Dennis Jacobs said. “At some point, prosecutors must encounter boundaries to discretion, so that no American prosecutor can say, ‘Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.’ ”

LaTona thinks Marinello’s petition to the Supreme Court also benefited from a split in how the nation’s appeals courts view the IRS “omnibus clause” at the heart of his appeal.

Three appeals court have ruled in favor of the IRS with just one, in Ohio, ruling against it, according to court records.

Supreme Court agrees to hear Buffalo tax case

Marinello’s petition to the court also may have benefited from two national organizations the American College of Tax Counsel and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers that filed briefs in support of his case.

In its court papers, the College of Tax Counsel, a professional association of tax lawyers,
timberland boots for babies Buffalo businessman freed from prison
said the case’s consequences to everyday taxpayers is “neither imaginary nor hyperbolic.”

Budweiser has launched a beer made from a recipe that was created over 90 years ago but was almost forgotten about when America entered the Prohibition period.

The new amber lager is a 6.1% ABV, higher than Budweiser’s original 5% ABV.

It was concocted before the US passed the Eighteenth Amendment on January 16, 1920, which meant the production, importation, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages was completely prohibited in the country.

Finally, on December 5,

1933, the Eighteenth Amendment was repealed, replaced by the Twenty First Amendment, which allowed the manufacture and sale of 3.2% beer and light wines.

To celebrate the anniversary of the repeal, Budweiser has created the new beer , influenced by a stronger beverage that dates back to pre Prohibition and had only just been developed when the ban came into place.

Budwieser’s Vice President, Ricardo, Marques, said: “We are excited to mark the upcoming holiday season and the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition with this new brew on a forgotten recipe.

LOS ANGELES (AP) ?Buddy Hackett, the squat, round, rubbery faced funnyman who appeared for more than 50 years as a top act in nightclubs, Broadway shows, on television and in such movies as he Music Man,?he Love Bug?and t a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,?has died, his son confirmed Monday night. He was 78.

Hackett died at his Southern California beach house either late Sunday or early Monday, Sandy Hackett told The Associated Press on Monday. The cause of his death was not immediately known; his son said Hackett had diabetes.

e was one of the greatest ever. He was a terrific father. He was my best friend. He prepared me very well for this day, but no matter how much you prepare it still hurts,?Sandy Hackett said as he arrived at his mother house in Los Angeles.

The younger Hackett, who is also a comedian, said he had driven to Los Angeles from his Las Vegas home as soon as he got the word of his father death.

Hackett was invited to join the Three Stooges when urly?Howard, the bald headed member of the comedy team, suffered a stroke in 1946. But Hackett declined, believing he could develop his own comedy style.

timberland boots in usa Bucs potential spoilers for Falcons

timberland earthkeepers jacket Bucs potential spoilers for Falcons

The way the Tampa Bay Buccaneers see it, they still have a lot to play for in a year in which they will miss the playoffs for the 10th straight season.

Facing NFC South rivals Atlanta, Carolina and New Orleans the next three games provides the last place Bucs (4 9) an opportunity to impact the division race, as well as the postseason outlook for the Falcons, Panthers and Saints.

That prospect is enough to keep a smile on the face of Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who is clinging to hope that a biceps injury won’t sideline him from a stretch run that begins Monday night against defending NFC champion Atlanta (8 5)

The Bucs play at Carolina (9 4) on Christmas Eve and finish at home against New Orleans (9 4) on New Year’s Eve.

“It is the season of giving. But for us, it’s the season of spoiling. We’ve got an opportunity to do that, and I’m just praying I can be a part of that,” McCoy said.

“You don’t want to leave with a bad taste in your mouth in the offseason. What better way to leave on a high note than to get three division wins?” the five time Pro Bowl selection added. “We don’t want to give those guys the upper hand going into next season.”

The prime time matchup will be the second between the teams in four games. The Falcons won the meeting 34 20 in Atlanta, with Julio Jones catching a season best 12 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

After facing the Bucs, the Falcons travel to New Orleans next week before returning home to play the Panthers in the regular season finale.

Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said it was predictable that the division race wouldn’t be decided until late December.

If there’s a surprise, it’s that the Bucs are already eliminated from playoff contention after going 9 7 a year ago.

“For us, we knew it was going to come down to the end. I think all four teams are capable of being the one right down there at the end,” Quinn said.

Like McCoy, Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter expects the Bucs to embrace the challenge to finish strong.

“The league has made a conscious effort here the last two years to have the division games mean something at the end, and I think they’ve succeeded in what they were trying to do,” Koetter said.

“Do you like it? It’s the same. It’s really no different,” the coach added. “It’s weird playing somebody three weeks apart, but it’s happening league wide,
timberland boots in usa Bucs potential spoilers for Falcons
and it’s just something we have to adjust to and be ready.”

Some things to know about Falcons Buccaneers:

Former Bucs coach Jon Gruden, who led the franchise to its only Super Bowl title 15 years ago, will be inducted into the Ring of Honor during a halftime ceremony at Raymond James Stadium. Gruden coached the Bucs from 2002 to 2008 and has spent the past nine seasons as ESPN’s game analyst on “Monday Night Football.”

Jones is the only receiver in NFL history with three 250 plus yard games in his career. No one else has more than one. He’s had plenty of big days against the Bucs. In 11 career meetings, the Falcons star has 1,359 receiving yards an average of 123.5 per game and 10 TDs. He needs four catches to reach 574 for his career and move ahead of Terance Mathis for second place on the franchise list. Roddy White is first with 808.

“Obviously what we did to try to stop Julio last game didn’t work too well,” Koetter said, adding that containing Jones won’t necessarily guarantee shutting down the Falcons’ offense led by Matt Ryan, who’s thrown for 995 yards, seven TDs and zero interceptions in his past three games against Tampa Bay.

“He is one of the best receivers in the league,” Koetter said. “You always have to honor him, but they’ve got other guys.”

Atlanta RB Tevin Coleman, with seven TDs and an average of 5.2 yards on 160 touches, went in the concussion protocol after last week’s 20 17 victory over the Saints and won’t play. That means Devonta Freeman will get the bulk of the snaps, with Terron Ward filling in behind him. Freeman has had 100 plus yards from scrimmage the last two times he faced the Bucs.

McCoy was injured during Tampa Bay’s 24 21 loss to Detroit, leaving in the first half and not returning. He’s had biceps injuries to end seasons prematurely twice during his career, but said he’s going to do everything possible to try to be ready to play Monday night.

“It’s viable. . He’s had experience with bicep injuries in the past,” Koetter said. “They’ve told him that this is something that doesn’t need to be surgically repaired at this time, and that (he’s) not going to make it worse by playing, but it’s a matter of can he play at the level that he’s used to playing at?”

timberland school shoes Bucs Hold High School Football Media Day at One Buc Place

On Friday the Bucs hosted high school football teams from Pinellas and Hillsborough county to take part in a media day at One Buc Place in Tampa Bay. one on one, press conference, and media scrum).

“It’s kind of crazy,” said a smiling Brent Szasz from Shorecrest high school. “We really don’t get too much of the spotlight (as an offensive line) so being here and being on TV is pretty awesome.”

“It’s pretty cool,” said Riverview’s junior quarterback Tamel McCall. “To think these Bucs’ players were once in this position (in high school) and now I am here. I can picture myself being in their shoes one day in the future.”

And there were some nerves even from some of the biggest players to occupy One Buc Place on Friday.

“I was a little nervous,” said the 6’3″ senior offensive lineman, Bryce Foxworth from Boca Ciega. “But my mom just told me to be myself, so after that I was ok.”

The day wasn’t just filled with interviews. It was also a chance for Buc’s personnel to help these young players understand the importance of understanding social media and responding to questions during interviews.

“Social media is a big part of how we are supposed to talk and we need to be aware of that because social media is basically another version of dealing with the media,” explained Robinson senior cornerback Anfernee Alston.

“A lot of high schools have social media and you need to know what you can say,” said Leto senior offensive lineman Austin Harmon. “We need to know what to say and what not to say, especially now that we have to be ready to deal with colleges and other people to impress.”

blue timberland boots Buckingham Palace flag NOT at half mast after ’emergency meeting’ sparks fears for Queen and Prince Philip

The Queen’s most senior aides reportedly ordered all staff from royal residences across the country to London, sparking frenzied speculation as to the reason behind the sudden request.

Following reports of royal staff spotted on the roof of Buckingham Palace, social media users shared images showing the Royal Standard is not at half mast.

Queen’s most senior aides ‘call ALL royal staff into emergency meeting at Buckingham Palace’

Prince Philip was also out on public duty yesterday when he opened the new Warner Stand at Lord’s .

The 95 year old Duke wore a tie matching the ceremonial ribbon he cut to officially open the stand, named after former England captain Sir Pelham Warner.

Last month, Buckingham Palace released an adorable picture of the Queen as a baby to mark the monarch’s 91st birthday.

Taken on the day of her christening way back in 1926, the one month old is held by her mum Elizabeth , the Duchess of York.

While her dad who later became King George VI clasps her tiny hands.

It was a subdued affair compared to last year’s 90th festivities, which saw celebrations across the country.

In December, Buckingham Palace was forced to quash rumours of the Queen’s death.

Speculation was sparked after Her Majesty missed a Christmas Day church service at her Sandringham Estate because of a heavy cold.

In the following days rumours began spreading over Twitter, most notably when a fake BBC News account duped scores of people with a fake report of her death.

The speculation prompted Buckingham Palace to take the unusual step of commenting on Her Majesty’s health, saying the Queen “continues to recover from a heavy cold and will stay indoors to assist with her recovery.”

But the news has prompted many to question what WILL happen when the Queen does, one day, pass away.

(Image: PA)

The Queen’s body will be taken to Parliament, where she will lie in state in Westminster Hall like the Queen Mother in 2002 until her funeral.

More than 200,000 people travelled to pay their respects to the Queen Mother and that number is expected to be vastly exceeded in the event of the Queen’s death.

Media coverage The licence fee funded BBC will suspend all programming and screen BBC One coverage of the event.

If Her Majesty dies during the night, her death would reportedly not be announced until 8am, after which her portrait will be displayed on the screen accompanied by the national anthem as happened following the death of Princess Diana in 1997.

The succession As first in line to the throne, Prince Charles will automatically become King when the Queen dies as the throne is technically never vacant.

However, the accession council would need to be convened at St James’s Palace to formally declare Charles the king.

He would be asked to swear loyalty to Parliament and the Church of England in front of the council.

The Queen handing over patronages is a small announcement that paints a bigger picture just don’t expect an abdication

In turn, the Houses of Parliament will be recalled to swear loyalty to him.

The words to the National Anthem will be changed and new postage stamps and currency created to reflect Prince Charles’ ascension to the throne.

timberland apparel Bubba Watson more concerned with his head than his swing

timberland kids clothing Bubba Watson more concerned with his head than his swing

He hits a golf ball with so much natural ability combined with such an unorthodox style that it piqued the curiosity of Tiger Woods when Watson first got on the PGA Tour, and even now it enough to cause his peers to stop and watch on the practice range.

His entourage has never included a swing coach. It all Bubba.

of the shots he hits are so creative. He really has his style of golf under control, Adam Scott said. don think you can teach it. He just such a natural talent. Watching a guy hit 5 iron to four different greens on the range about 85 yards, 120, 170 and 240 is pretty fun to watch. 11px;

Scott didn have to watch him on Sunday, which was just as well because it might not have been all that fun for guys trying to beat him at the Northern Trust Open. Watson took the lead for the last time by swinging so hard that he nearly came out of his shoes on the par 5 17th. The ball traveled 334 yards up the hill, setting up a 2 iron that went 256 yards and led to a two putt birdie. He wound up winning by one shot over Scott and Jason Kokrak.

He called it Golf when he won the first of his two Masters titles in 2012. Everyone knows what that is when they see it. It just hard to describe.

not trying to do anything. I don work on anything, Watson said. just play golf. I see a shot and try to hit it. I scared to death on most of them, but I try to hit it anyway.

Watson life is filled with conflict. He rubs some players the wrong way by bragging about the value of his watch. But there are plenty of other moments of quiet charity, such as the time he walked into a tournament office and wrote a $50,000 check to help with tsunami victims in Japan without saying a word.

He doesn like big crowds, but he couldn leave Riviera fast enough Saturday night so he could get to the Clippers Warriors game and be part of the celebrity scene. He says he doesn like a lot of attention, but he is constantly posting videos of wild stunts and trick shots.

He is known for his prodigious tee shots, and one year at Doral he would turn to make sure fans were watching as he bashed tee shots to the back of the range. But then he refused to take part in a long drive competition at the PGA Championship two years ago.

Watson said is trying to get better,
timberland apparel Bubba Watson more concerned with his head than his swing
even though he accepts that he has flaws.

Most of the credit goes to his wife, Angie, and his caddy, Ted Scott, with whom he has worked for close to a decade.

is a saint. For her to marry me . she might have issues, too, I guess, Watson said.

The wisecracks come easily when a trophy is nearby.

Angie has changed as much as I have since the day Teddy met me in 2006, we call her the second Mother Teresa. You know what I mean? Watson said. I just a loser. I started as an and now I a D plus. But me as a person has changed, and that what is happening in my golf. Not the swing.

swing? he said dismissively. can hit shots.

Yes, he still gets angry. One video that showed up on social media at the Hero World Challenge was Watson screaming at the ground to say, BALL! after an errant shot caused by a speck of mud. It looks as though he is harping on Scott when shots don go his way, but that was a product of a rant caught on TV a few years ago.

Watson said he was hurt by the verbal abuse he endured at the Phoenix Open two weeks ago, when he started his week by saying he didn like changes to the TPC Scottsdale and that he was playing mainly for his sponsors that week. He felt his comments were misconstrued in a headline. Watson said he reads only the headlines,
timberland apparel Bubba Watson more concerned with his head than his swing
and he believes that all anyone else does. He was booed so often Saturday in Phoenix that at least one player complained on his behalf to the tour.
