slobo/iStock(SYKESVILLE, Md.) — A Maryland sheriff criticized Walmart for what he described as its lack of armed security following several incidents involving guns in recent weeks at Walmart locations, including an armed robbery that occurred last week at a local store.On Friday morning, a man walked up to a register at a Walmart in Sykesville, Md., and “repeatedly” displayed a handgun while demanding money, according to a statement from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office. The Walmart employee complied, and the man fled the area, authorities said.Carroll County Sheriff Jim DeWees blasted the company’s corporate security policies, telling the Carroll County Times on Friday that it “breeds this type of activity.”DeWees described the company as being “reactive” rather than “proactive,” saying that would-be criminals are aware that they will encounter little to no security when conducting illegal activity in the store.“They all but wait for these things to happen before they put measures into place,” DeWees said of Walmart.The Maryland incident came less than a week after a gunman killed 22 people and injured dozens more at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, three days after two men who were arguing pulled guns on each other at a Walmart in Baton Rouge and one day after a man in Springfield, Missouri, walked into a Walmart armed with a rifle and wearing body armor.In addition, on July 30, two Walmart employees in Southaven, Mississippi, were shot dead by a coworker.DeWees said Walmart needs to start employing armed security to prevent crimes from occurring at the store, adding that his deputies patrol the local Walmart more frequently.“Find me a Walmart that isn’t a burden on law enforcement resources and I will kiss your a–,” he told the Carroll County Times. “Their corporate policies are pitiful when it comes to securing their stores and protecting their employees and the customers that are there.”Walmart Director of National Media Relations LeMia Jenkins told ABC News in a statement that the corporation values its relationship with the sheriff’s office and understands that the sheriff “has concerns.”“Anytime a member of law enforcement raises concerns, we want to have dialogue with them to better understand them and how we can work together,” Jenkins said, adding that Walmart representatives plan on meeting with DeWees.Walmart spokesman Casey Staheli told the Carroll County Times that the company recognizes the security issues “at the highest levels of the company” and is “investing in people, programs and technology to support our stores.”The company doesn’t just want to ‘detect” crime but “deter” it as well, Staheli told the local newspaper.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

London, United Kingdom | AFP | Wayde van Niekerk’s bid for a first world double since 1995 now turns to the 200m after he stormed to a comfortable victory in the 400m.After initially struggling with the cold, the 25-year-old ran a solid final bend to blast to victory in 43.98 seconds with a lot to spare, and went straight into recovery ahead of Wednesday’s 200m semi-finals, with the final on Thursday.“It was quite freezing and I struggled to get myself warmed up and ready,” said Van Niekerk, who came into the 400m as defending world and Olympic champion.“I was doubting my momentum. In the last 150 metres I tried putting in an extra gear, but I couldn’t catch my stride until my last few metres. I just allowed the race to go through to the finish line.”Thoughts will turn straight to the 200m, and a rare double.The last athlete to claim the 200/400m double was American Michael Johnson, who achieved the feat the 1995 worlds in Gothenburg, repeating the achievement a year later in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.“It’s easier said than done,” said Van Niekerk, who smashed Johnson’s 400m world record when winning gold in Rio and then his rarely-run 300m record in Ostrava last month.“It’s competition, it’s very unpredictable.“My body still feels very good. It took me a while to recover. “But from endurance I go straight to speed… It’s a day-by-day, step-by-step process for us athletes.”– New challenges –Van Niekerk reiterated that every season threw up new challenges.“I know it’s never going to be a walk in the park,” he said. “I’m just so grateful to say I came through with a gold medal.“Every year has its new challenges, and every year it gets tough. I don’t think it ever became easier. Right after Rio I found out I had a back injury, and this entire season I have been struggling to find fitness, but at the same time my times have been getting better, especially in the short sprints.”Van Niekerk, the first athlete to break 10 seconds over 100m, 20sec over 200m and 44sec over 400m, added he was delighted his coach Anna “Tannie Ans” Botha would also receive a medal as part of a championships initiative to reward coaches.“Everyone knows the superstar coach I have,” he said of the 74-year-old great-grandmother who oversees the hottest property in world athletics.“It’s actually a massive honour for me to be able to reach these great heights with her.“She has had to wait a long time – with the third gold, she gets to take one home with her too. Unfortunately my two previous medals had to go to Mum as she said ‘Everything achieved at home has to stay here’. So I am glad to be able to take this one home myself!”Share on: WhatsApp
Well, we are officially in the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season as the remnants of hurricane Cristobal continue to dump rain along the Gulf coast.Cristobal is the earliest third storm to be named in the Atlantic hurricane season.Compared with the worst storm to hit South Florida, Hurricane Andrew, which started off the season in August of 1992. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-58-wicked-killer-terrorist-mother-nature/id1460268436?i=1000477159252Hurricane Andrew was a powerful and destructive Category 5 Atlantic hurricane that struck the Bahamas, Florida, and Louisiana in August 1992.On August 24, Andrew struck Elliott Key with winds of 165 mph (266 km/h) and a pressure of 926 mbar (27.34 inHg).About 25 minutes after its first Florida landfall, Andrew made another landfall just northeast of Homestead, with a slightly lower pressure of 922 mbarThis barometric pressure made Andrew the most intense hurricane to strike the United States since Hurricane Camille in 1969 and the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall in Florida since the Labor Day hurricane of 1935.The United States and Florida would not experience another landfall from a hurricane at Category 5 intensity until Hurricane Michael in 2018 which wiped out portions of the Florida panhandle.Andrew was so strong it blew the wind meter off the roof of the National Hurricane Center which at the time was located in Coral Gables.The NHC then moved its facility west, miles inland near the Everglades to prevent any future direct hits.Andrew caused major damage in the Bahamas and Louisiana, but the greatest impact was felt in South Florida, where the storm made landfall as a Category 5 hurricane, with 1-minute sustained wind speeds as high as 165 mph.Passing directly through the city of Homestead with wind gusts up to 177 mph, Andrew stripped many homes of all but their concrete foundations. In total, Andrew destroyed more than 63,500 houses, damaged more than 124,000 others, caused $27.3 billion in damage, and left 65 people dead.The cities of Florida City, Homestead, Cutler Ridge and parts of Kendall received the brunt of the storm. As many as 1.4 million people lost power at the height of the storm; some for more than one month. In the Everglades, 70,000 acres of trees were downed, while invasive Burmese pythons began inhabiting the region after a nearby facility housing them was destroyed.The 1992 Atlantic hurricane season was a well below average hurricane season that had one of the latest dates on record for the first named storm.There were only six named storms, with Andrew being the only major hurricane. But as the head of the National Hurricane Center always says, “it just takes one.”

DELHI, India (CMC):All-rounder Dwayne Bravo has spoken out in support of West Indies T20 captain Darren Sammy, who faces possible disciplinary action for publicly criticising the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) after the regional team won the T20 World Cup in India on Sunday.Bravo says he and the rest of the champion West Indies T20 side are in full support of Sammy, who hit out at the WICB for its lack of support to the players.”The most unprofessional board”In an exclusive Skype interview from India with Trinidad and Tobago’s CNC3 television yesterday, Bravo described the WICB as “the most unprofessional board” in the world.”The players feel hurt, and the time has come where we cannot take it anymore, and someone needs to put a stop to it because the cricket is being run by people who do not have the interest of West Indies cricket at heart,” Bravo said.Sammy faces possible disciplinary action after a statement from the WICB described his comments as “inappropriate” and promised an investigation.”I was not surprised by Sammy’s speech. I think we had enough as players. A lot of people don’t understand what we go through as players dealing with our board,” said Bravo.”It is the most unprofessional board in the world, and I think Sammy spoke from his heart.”

The basketball court isn’t the only place where Andre Iguodala is a straight shooter. On Tuesday, appearing on ESPN’s “The Breakfast Club” to discuss his newly released book “The Sixth Man” he said he believes former Warriors coach Mark Jackson has been blackballed by the NBA.“I do,” he said. “Yes. Absolutely.”Iguodala joined the Warriors for the 2013-14 season in Jackson’s third, and final, season as the team’s coach.“He was one of my favorite coaches of all time,” Iguodala said. “It was …
Another year, another training camp, another NFL season for the indomitable Frank Gore.A 2005 draft choice of the 49ers, Gore doesn’t predate leather helmets. But he could tell his teammates about a time when helmet-to-helmet contact was just part of the game. He’s 36, three years older than Rams head coach Sean McVay.Gore doesn’t know when he’ll retire. But he knows where, and isn’t shy about his post-football plans.“I’m going to be a Niner, you know,” Gore told Florida’s Sun-Sentinel last …
Port Elizabeth is the city of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. Within the metro limits there are lovely walks, some fantastic mountain bike trails, pretty good surfing, fantastic sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, and great diving.The beach front opposite the Boardwalk in Port Elizabeth. The Boardwalk has a whole host of fashionable shops and several coffee shops and restaurants, as well as a casino. (Image: Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism)Brand South Africa reporterOften overlooked by travellers in search of glitz and glamour, Port Elizabeth is probably South Africa’s best-kept secret. Fantastic weather and an enormous range of attractions make it a great place for a totally relaxing stay.The beaches range from crowded, social and developed to long and deserted. Lovely old buildings reflect PE’s past as an integral part of the development of the Eastern Cape and South Africa, and a host of cultural activities will offer you an insight into the lives of other people.Some of the attractions seem a tad, well, gloomy, but are actually very interesting. A visit to the cell in which Black Consciousness activist and freedom struggle martyr Steve Biko was held before his death is certainly an eye-opener, and graveyard and ghost tours are really far more positive than they may sound.Port Elizabeth is a significant industrial centre, with much emphasis on the motor manufacturing industry, so it’s quite appropriate that it has the country’s most impressive motor museum.For an innovative shopping experience close to the beach, the Boardwalk has a whole host of fashionable shops and some wonderful coffee shops and restaurants, as well as a casino. It’s an open-air space as opposed to a mall, and a semi-natural water feature winds through the complex, which seems to please a range of birds as well as shoppers.Port Elizabeth is a great place to base yourself for a while, as it is so close to many other wonderful destinations. You could do day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, Shamwari, the Baviaanskloof, Port Alfred, Jeffreys Bay or Grahamstown. Within the metro limits there are lovely walks, some fantastic mountain bike trails, pretty good surfing, fantastic sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, and great diving.You could even dive in the predator tank of the Bayworld aquarium. There are some excellent golf courses, most notably Humewood, which is the only true links course in South Africa.Source: South African TourismWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
