NTSB releases final report on FIU bridge collapse

first_imgOn Tuesday, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released its final report on the FIU bridge collapse that left six people dead and ten others injured in Miami on March 15, 2018.NTSB officials held a hearing about the results Tuesday, where its staff of engineers and investigators presented evidence that the bridge’s “catastrophic failure” stemmed from a flawed design with “significant errors.”NTSB officials not only blamed design errors for the tragedy but also faulted “Florida International University, the Florida Department of Transportation and the project’s engineers and contractors for failing to exercise independent judgment, or even common sense, in leaving the busy road underneath the bridge open while a construction crew performed emergency work.”An NTSB official reiterated the findings of the investigation that FDOT engineers failed to listen to warnings about cracks in the bridge before the collapse.The cracks were “screaming that there was something definitely wrong with this bridge, and yet no one was listening,” said NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt.The investigation has officially come to an end, but the case may be far from over.According to The Miami Herald, the NTSB’s ruling may influence whether Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle plans to file criminal negligence charges against the project team for its decision to treat the cracks the bridge as minor.Click here to learn more.Related content:NTSB report reveals shocking new details in deadly FIU bridge collapselast_img read more

Lynch’s brace keeps Den Amstel at top of points standing

first_imgA BRACE off the boot of Alister Lynch ensured Den Amstel maintained their lead in the points table of the West Demerara Football Association (WDFA) STAG Beer Senior League, which continued on Sunday at the Den Amstel ground, West Coast Demerara.Lynch’s double assisted his side to secure a narrow 3-2 win against Eagles.The game started badly for Den Amstel as Eagles were first to go ahead through an Alonzo Henry sixth-minute conversion, but 13 minutes later, the home side found the equaliser as Lynch found the back of the opposition’s net for the first of his double.Thirteen minutes before the break, Kevon Ward sent Den Amstel into the lead, but one minute before lemon-time, Eagles were able to level the score as Henry tucked in another goal (44th minute).Locked 2-2, going into the second session, both teams were guilty of not finishing some good build-ups for the most part of the session and it was not until the 67th minute that Lynch netted his second goal to take his team to 19 points from seven matches.Den Amstel won six of their matches to date and drew the other. They have so far scored 18 goals and conceded eight.Eagles, on the other hand, are fourth in the standing with 10 points from six matches. They have won three, lost two and drawn one and have so far recorded 21 goals and conceded 11 for a plus 10 goal difference.Meanwhile, in the opening fixture on Sunday, Stewartville secured a walkover victory over Veggae Boys and are currently sixth in the points standing with 10 points from seven matches after winning three and losing a similar number while drawing one.Veggae Boys, on the other hand, are second from the bottom of the standing after playing eight matches. They won one and lost the other seven. They have conceded 36 goals while scoring only nine.last_img read more

UEFA Investigating Sergio Ramos over Booking Comments

first_imgSergio Ramos Ramos said suggestions he intentionally played for the yellow card “hurts”, tweeting “I have not forced the card”.Earlier Ramos had told reporters he would “be lying if I said I didn’t force [the booking]”.On Thursday, Uefa said: “A disciplinary inquiry has been opened in connection with the statements made by Real Madrid player Sergio Ramos.”The Spain international was making his 600th appearance for Los Blancos and his side secured a first-leg advantage through Marco Asensio’s goal two minutes before the controversial booking.Pundit Martin Keown said it was “very obvious” Ramos was looking to pick up a third booking in the competition to be banned for the second leg – a suspension at this stage greatly reduces the risk of missing a match later in the competition with all bookings wiped following the quarter-final stage.“In a game there are many tensions, many sensations and many pulsations,” Ramos tweeted. “You have to make decisions in seconds. The best of today is the result. The worst, not being able to be with my team-mates for a game.”Ramos’ team-mate Dani Carvajal received a two-game ban from Uefa when he was judged to have been booked on purpose in the final minute of a 6-0 win over Apoel Nicosia in last season’s tournament.Ramos and former Real midfielder Xabi Alonso were both booked late on in a 3-0 quarter-final first-leg victory over Galatasaray in 2013.Both players were also criticised in 2010, when they were booked and sent off in the final five minutes of a group game with Ajax, meaning they missed the next fixture, with Real already assured of progress to the knockout stage.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram UEFA is investigating comments from Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos after it was suggested he was booked on purpose late in Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg at Ajax.Ramos fouled Kasper Dolberg in the 89th minute with Real leading 2-1, earning a suspension for the second leg.A player who purposely obtains a booking can be banned for two games.last_img read more

Day records 7 blocks, 13 rebounds in Syracuse win over Wake Forest

first_img Published on January 16, 2015 at 12:34 am Contact Paul: pmschwed@syr.edu | @pschweds Briana Day was sprawled across the court four minutes into the second half. Head coach Quentin Hillsman and a trainer were gathered around Day, whose heavy breathing was audible from across the court just after she tweaked her ankle.On the Syracuse sideline, associate head coach Vonn Read told other players to get ready to step up as Day limped to the locker room.But five minutes later, Day returned to the game and added five more crucial rebounds as Syracuse pulled away late.“Briana really, really grew up today,” Hillsman said. “… Last year, I don’t know if she would have came back tough like that. I think she understood the urgency. She understood that we really needed her.”Despite missing the game’s final 2:19 after fouling out, Day’s 13 rebounds and seven blocks — tied for a career-high — were instrumental in No. 25 Syracuse’s (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) 73-62 win over Wake Forest (9-9, 0-4) in front of 364 in the Carrier Dome on Thursday night.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd though Day only totaled six points, she battled down low with the ACC’s fourth-best rebounder, Dearica Hamby, who Hillsman called a “future WNBA lottery pick.”“It was really tough playing with fouls and then the injury but … I feel like I came back and did the best I could, knowing that I was still hurting,” Day said. “It was all for my team, really.“That’s all it is every night.”While the Orange’s Alexis Peterson shined with a career-high 32 points, Day’s gritty, grind-it-out performance keyed SU’s 28 offensive rebounds and a 47-35 overall rebounding advantage against the Demon Deacons.Day tallied six first-half blocks, and did a good job defensively on Hamby, who took fewer shots in the paint as the game progressed.“I usually don’t block because they always call the foul, but I guess tonight, (the refs) were my friends tonight,” Day said. “They just let me play basketball.”After Day returned, she continued to impress even though she admitted after the game the ankle injury slowed her down.With six and a half minutes left in the game and Syracuse possessing a five-point lead, Diamond Henderson drove to the paint and forced a layup that ricocheted off the backboard.In the middle of four Wake Forest players, Day rose up, snagged the ball out of the air and kicked out a pass to an open Brianna Butler, who knocked down a 3 to open up an eight-point Orange lead.“Briana’s a tough player,” Peterson said. “A lot of people may think she’s undersized or she’s too small but Briana has one of the biggest hearts.”But Hamby responded. The Demon Deacons trailed SU 59-51 with 4:43 to go and over the next minute and a half, and Hamby scored six straight points to pull WFU within two.On the next possession, Henderson missed another jumper, but Day got position in front of Hamby and grabbed the rebound. She missed her put-back, but out-muscled Hamby for the second consecutive board. Five seconds later, Peterson hit a 3 with 2:39 to go.Day’s two rebounds against Hamby were the two final plays she made before fouling out, but what she accomplished in her 28 minutes on the court was more than enough.Said Hillsman: “For Briana Day to come off and play like that, what else can you ask for?” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
