Morecambe 3 Pompey 1
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
There was already a hint of blue sky congregating above the wind-torn Globe Arena. Yet it was an 18-year-old from Worthing who supplied the glorious sunshine. And with it, Conor Chaplin lifted the spirits of Pompey supporters on another gloomy afternoon in a season whose lights were switched off long ago. The Fratton faithful will gratefully embrace any positive at present, such has been the demoralising campaign they have been forced to endure. On 85 minutes that moment emerged. Matt Tubbs spun and cut across the face of a congested penalty area before having the presence of mind to slide a pass into the left channel. There was Chaplin, who took one touch before driving an angled left-foot shot across the Morecambe keeper and into the far corner of the net. It was a finish of marvellous quality to reduce Pompey’s deficit against Jim Bentley’s side to 2-1. Perhaps more importantly in the context of this dead rubber run-in, it was a maiden goal for a homegrown talent who has won ...

Stop and search: on the streets with the police
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
With its 9% success rate and disproportionate targeting of young black men, stop and search is widely blamed for public distrust of the police. Ben Ferguson joined a London patrol to see how the power is used Willesden, north-west London, 2.30am. A passer-by has seen a man try to break into some vehicles, chased him away and called 999. Minutes later, PC Paul Jones reaches the area and begins searching through bins, down alleyways and behind fences until he spots someone fitting the description. Jones is not convinced by the 19-year-old's account of why he's there, and soon discovers what he thinks might be a tool for breaking windows nearby. This gives Jones the grounds he needs to search him, and he begins running his hands down the man's legs, through the seams of his jacket and the turn-ups of his trousers. As one suspect admitted to me – immediately after Jones had unloaded a spare watch and a wallet containing someone else's ID card from his jacket – Jones is "one of the good ...

How Some Of The World's Most Successful People Discovered Their Spiritual Side
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In a 1967 interview, "What I Believe," John Lennon opened up to the world about how he discovered God. "You don't have to have a great faith or anything. The whole thing is so simple -- as though it's too marvelous to be true," Lennon said of discovering Transcendental Meditation in India with guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, during the interview with The Daily Sketch. "I don't and never did imagine God as one thing. But now I can see God as a power source, or as an energy." Lennon went on to say, "It's all like one big jelly. We're all in the big jelly." Now, with nearly one in five Americans identifying as "spiritual but not religious," and countless successful people in a range of professions saying that meditation is their greatest secret to success, some of America's most beloved public figures and successful business leaders are following suit, opening up about their first "big jelly" moments of spiritual awakening -- and telling the world why they believe.

WATCH: Sherlock's Return Revealed In Teaser Trailer - What Does It Tell Us?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
'Sherlock' fans got a tiny taster last night of what's to come in Season 3, but what are we to make of it all? The BBC ran a 30-second teaser trailer following the re-run of the last of Season 2, which saw Sherlock somehow fake his own death, but sadly forgetting to let his closest friends in on the secret. And what did we see? One shot of Benedict Cumberbatch is all we get in the Series 3 teaser trailer The answer is, not much. The most shocking reveal of all was that John Watson (Martin Freeman) looks years older, sporting a bushy moustache. This was evidently designed to tell viewers that some time has gone by, and Sherlock's nearest and dearest have somehow gone about the business of trying to cope with life without him. Mrs Hudson is washing up. Mycroft Holmes is, as usual, working in a leather chair. Lestrade is investigating in a darkened alleyway. Watson is drinking in a bar. Is this really who we think it is? As for the distinctive silhouette at ...

CO: Well, that could be debated, but I think I'll probably just agree with you there. MR: [laughs] You have a new album, Have Harmony, Will Travel. How did you come up with the material for this one? CO: Several years ago, I was in between production projects, which is what I mainly do. I haven't done a studio album in a long time, mainly because I've been working at producing. One day I just thought, "Well, I'm in between projects. Maybe I should try to start something." I did have about half an album's worth of material written, but it wasn't really what I wanted to do at the time.

Is The New Testament Missing A Few Books?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
By Caleb Bell Religion News Service (RNS) Is the New Testament missing a few books? In a move that may seem heretical to some Christians, a group of scholars and religious leaders has added 10 new texts to the Christian canon. The work, "A New New Testament," was released nationwide in March in an attempt to add a different historical and spiritual context to the Christian scripture. Some of the 10 additional texts -- which have come to light over the past century -- date back to the earliest days of Christianity and include some works that were rejected by the early church. The 19-member council that compiled the texts consisted of biblical scholars, leaders in several Christian denominations -- Episcopal, Roman Catholic, United Methodist, United Church of Christ and Lutheran -- two rabbis and an expert in Eastern religions and yoga. * EXCERPT: "Jesus said, 'Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.

Tories accused of ‘not in my backyard’ housing strategy
Belper - over 4 years
The leader of Amber Valley Borough Council’s Labour group has accused members of the Tory–run authority of taking a “not in my backyard” approach to building 9,000 homes in the area. Paul Jones claimed the authority’s proposals for large housing developments in the area ensure that none of the building sites are in the wards of Conservative councillors. Tory leaders have angrily denied Mr Jones’ claims, saying Labour politicians were involved in the process which saw sites, including nearly 2,000 homes in Far Laund and Mill Lane, Belper ditched. At a meeting on Wednesday night the council decided to put out six sites for public consultation including 1,800 homes at Cinderhill, in Denby. Cllr Jones said: “In fact, four of the six sites proposed are between Heanor and Ripley.If you look at these proposals they are all on the eastern side of the A38, with the exception of the proposals for Alfreton, “It is noticeable that the only town with no significant developments is Belper. ...

Leeds property news: Sales are up for the agency
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
BUSINESS is up for a Leeds estate agency but it warns sellers that they have to still be realistic in their expectations. It is still a buyers market, it says, and asking prices will be cut. Paul Jones, director and manager of Kath Wells estate agents, says properties are being sold as more people are able to enter the market. The firm has just helped support the Gildersome Scarecrow Festival, along with other local businesses. It has a branch in the Gildersome community, as well as another one in Wortley. There is a hope, says Mr Jones, that another will be opened as the housing market picks up. Mr Jones told the YEP that trading is currently looking good. He said: “We are really busy. There are a lot of first-time buyers coming back onto the market. “They had to come back at some stage. We are not really a rental nation. “The rates are really good at the moment. There are still some lenders doing five per cent.” Mr Jones said that the big sellers have previously been three- ...

Brooks Students Serve as Mentors for Oak View First Graders
Bolingbrook Patch - almost 5 years
Six Brooks Middle School students, all members of the Brooks King Bees program, spent almost an hour Tuesday working on math skills with first graders at Oak View Elementary School. “We’ve been wanting to do some math intervention and have our kids work on some of their math skills,” said Oak View school social worker Amber King. “We thought having some extra hands on deck to play with math manipulatives would be a good way for them to help.” Brooks school psychologist Miguel Salinas and seventh grade counselor Demea Richards-Scott proposed the mentoring trip for the six at-risk Brooks students figuring it was a win-win situation for both schools. “Our goal is to have them give back and make them feel connected, not only to the school but to the community,” Salinas said. “This was an opportunity for them to figure out who they are and what they are about…to develop their own spirit by giving back to someone else.” King termed the visit a great way for the Oak View first gra ...

Posh 2, Watford 2 - Taylor made for the big time
The Evening Telegraph - almost 5 years
Championship report: If ever an X Factor show for footballers is made Paul Taylor would be a hot favourite for victory. He has the natural talent, he has the drive and he even has the obligatory weepy tale involving a tough upbringing, bad decisions and a potentially career-ending rejection. Just under 18 months ago Taylor was a nobody in search of a kick-around. Today he stands on the verge of a lucrative salary and a shot at the big-time thanks to a stunning first season as a Championship footballer. Taylor may infuriate fans and team-mates alike as Stevie Wonder would probably show more vision on a football pitch. He’d be called a ‘ball-hog’ in the playground, but no-one should doubt his technical excellence and the stir he prompts in the crowd when he picks up possession and starts dribbling at defenders. Goal number 12 of his season was a stunner. A 54th-minute corner rolled at pace to the edge of the area was dummied by two Posh players before reaching Taylor who unleashed a ...
