Vine/Andy WittryMaryland struggled down the stretch this season, but played Big Ten favorite Michigan State very tough in today’s conference semifinal. With 0.8 seconds left, down 64-61, the Terps had a chance at a long Melo Trimble heave to tie the game, and on the play it appears that he may have been fouled by Michigan State’s Eron Harris while shooting. A call would have put Trimble, an 86-percent free throw shooter, on the line with a chance to tie the game, but the referees swallowed their whistles, giving Sparty the win.Was it the right call? You decide:Last shot by Maryland. Close call on if it’s a foul or not. Michigan St. wins and will play Purdue tomorrow https://t.co/lCScEB2jwb— THE MAIN MANN™ (@JacobMann_1) March 12, 2016Twitter certainly doesn’t have a consensus.Don’t think that was a foul on Harris but WHY IS HE THERE???— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) March 12, 2016That was a foul on the last shot but #Terps had their chances.— Zachary Cohen (@ZcohenCNN) March 12, 2016LOL Maryland got screwed on the last play. Clear foul.— Peyton Manning GOAT (@mranieri17) March 12, 2016Maryland didn’t deserve a foul at the end. They got too many of them the first 15 minutes of the 2nd half. So no, Terp fans can’t complain— Adam Ruff (@AdamMRuff) March 12, 2016Terps nation: dont complain about the “foul” at the end. Complain about the coach that doesn’t prepare our team or make any adjustments— DLee (@dmvDLEE) March 12, 2016At any other point in the game that’s a foul. Basketball is dumb— Alyssa Goins (@AlyssaGoins) March 12, 2016“I swear to god I didn’t see it” as CBS shows him losing it because it was clearly a foul— Anthony Valle (@Ant_Films) March 12, 2016That was probably a foul at the end of the Maryland-Michigan State game, but a referee is never going to call that.— Justin Howard (@JustinHoward44) March 12, 2016At the same time, if you’re stupid enough to contest a 3/4-length shot and make contact, you should probably be punished with a foul.— Jesse Yomtov (@JesseYomtov) March 12, 2016“If that was a foul, I will tell you some other ones on our side that were fouls.” -Tom Izzo #goat #V4MSU #bigtentournament— Jerry VanDorpe (@JDVanDorpe) March 12, 2016That is 100 percent a foul.— Andrew Holleran (@andrewjholleran) March 12, 2016Calling a foul there would be very rough, but Harris can’t put himself in that position.

Sir Richard Branson has blogged about the immigration bans imposed by the US government over the weekend.“There are many reasons to be concerned about the Executive Order issued by US President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon, suspending all refugee immigration for 120 days and specifically barring citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and Africa from entering the United States.“The ban, which went into effect immediately, has already caused enormous confusion and despair. Hundreds have been stranded at airports around the world and thousands more are left in uncertainty. The growing number of those denied entry to the US includes students with valid US visas, academic researchers en route to their workplaces and conferences, and even several people who have risked their lives working as interpreters for US forces in Iraq. The people affected are as diverse as they can be, yet they share one thing in common: they pose no threat whatsoever to America’s security.“What worries me the most is that the President’s order breaks with well-established US humanitarian policy – and international law. Opening her door to “the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free”, has made America great for more than 240 years. If life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness have been the engines that power the American Dream, immigration has been its fuel. And many among the tens of millions who have arrived at American shores in hope for a better life were refugees who lost everything – from European Jews escaping persecution in Nazi Germany to Vietnamese boat people hoping to start a better life after the end of the war that ravaged their country.“To them, the US stood and continues to stand for a life free from oppression and fear, a haven of freedom and opportunity, regardless of the colour of their skin or their religious beliefs. Just imagine how many of today’s truly American success stories are refugees’ stories. Albert Einstein and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin and artist Wyclef Jean stand for millions of others whose ethnicity or beliefs didn’t matter. What mattered was that they needed a compassionate welcome and a fresh start.“I fear that Friday’s order has set a dangerous precedent for the systematic exclusion of those who come full of hope and with the best intentions. And I’m reminded of the darker chapters of US history, like the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 or the ineffable internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II – racist policies that caused untold suffering. “The necessary, decisive battle against terrorism does not justify a general suspicion against people of a certain origin or a certain religion,” said the spokesperson of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and I agree wholeheartedly.“And praise to the America’s northern neighbour whose Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote earlier that “Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength.” I haven’t given up hope that Congress, across the aisle, will come to the same conclusion.“In the meantime, I applaud the thousands who have taken to the streets and the airwaves in solidarity across the US; the hundreds of lawyers camping out at airports and donating their time to fight the good fight on behalf of those caught up in this mess; the brave federal judges who have shown that checks and balances are still in place. They all stand for a kinder, gentler and more welcoming America – the America that is admired the world over.“The Virgin family includes many companies in the US and elsewhere that are proud to employ people from all around the world, and I speak on behalf of us all in saying we stand together in valuing an open and diverse society. As George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic, tweeted: “The best of America is open, courageous and compassionate. That’s when we’re strongest. The EO should be withdrawn.” Mary Wittenberg, CEO of Virgin Sport, also wrote to her team: “We stand for diversity – of all types. We welcome all to join us, and we are inspired by the values of our birth countries, the United States and the UK. With chaotic winds of change whipping, we will stand strong for, and on the side of, our values and people.”“Like many others, including Google’s wonderful crisis fund, I am donating to the American Civil Liberties Union and the International Rescue Committee, and would urge anyone who can afford it to donate to the causes close to their heart too.”Read Branson’s blog here.Jennifer Lawrence has also made a statement about the bans on her Facebook page, saying: “My broken heart goes out to the innocent lives of Muslim refugees that are trying to escape terror and find safety for their families. I and millions of Americans understand that someone’s race or religion should never keep them in harms way. It should be every person’s duty to help and protect anyone no matter their nationality. I pray for sanity and compassion to return to the Whitehouse.”The world continues to condemn the US government’s immigration bans, and the effects they could have on world peace.
PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies MP Bob Zimmer hosted a roundtable discussion regarding new proposed federal firearms laws in Prince George earlier this week.In a release, Zimmer said the discussion topics included Canada’s current firearms classification system, the process a law-abiding firearms owner has to go through to purchase a firearm legally, and the recent introduction of firearms legislation by the Liberal government.“I wanted to hold this roundtable to have an open conversation about firearms and our current laws. It is important to me that I consult with constituents from Prince George and the region about how they feel about this issue. If people have concerns, it’s my goal to hear those concerns and help with them in any way I can,” said Mr. Zimmer. “There is a lot of misinformation out there about our current firearms laws, and one of the reasons why I wanted to have this roundtable was to be able to provide accurate information.” “It was a great discussion and I was able to learn a lot about where people are at on the issue. I want to hear from any of my constituents regarding any changes that they would like to see to firearms legislation. It is also my hope those who attended were able to come away with a better understanding of our current system.”

New Delhi: India staged a decent comeback to restrict Australia to 272 for nine after Usman Khawaja continued with his imperious form by hitting his second hundred of the series in the decisive fifth ODI here Wednesday. Khawaja, who had not scored a century before arriving to India for this series, hit an exact 100 off 106 balls and shared two big partnerships at the top of the order. Australia were placed comfortably at 175 for one in the 33rd over and set for a kill in slog overs, but the script changed for the hosts when Bhuvneshwar Kumar got rid off Khawaja in the last ball of the that over. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football together The visitors added only 97 runs after that in 17 overs, surrendering the advantage, which was well-earned by Khawaja and his top-order colleagues. The left-hander, who hit a century in Ranchi as well, first raised a 76-run stand with Aaron Finch (27) after his skipper elected to bat in hazy and overcast conditions and followed it up with a 99-run partnership with Peter Handscomb (52). Bhuvneshwar took three wickets for 48 runs while Ravindra Jadeja (2/45) and Mohammed Shami (2/57) accounted for two batsmen each. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open The Feroz Shah Kotla wicket did not have much for either spinners or pacers but was far from usual low and slow track as the Australians easily worked the ball around. Khawaja was yet again impressive with his footwork, handling the Indian spinners nicely before being caught at shot extra cover by Kohli off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The left-hander hit 10 fours and two sixes before driving straight to Kohli. Jadeja then got rid of Glenn Maxwell (1) and Shami sent back Handscomb as Australia lost three wickets in the space of 14 balls. The tide turned in India’s favour with Australia managing just 27 runs in overs between 34 and 40. Jadeja, who replaced Yuzvendra Chahal, made a strong case for himself for inclusion in the World Cup squad with figures of 10-0-45-2. Jasprit Bumrah was exceptional in his first eight overs giving just 14 runs but Jhye Richradson (29) spoilt his figures by creaming off four boundaries from his ninth over, providing one last push to Australian innings. It turned out to be a forgettable day for chinaman Kuldeep Yadav who bled 74 runs in his 10 overs but dismissed dangerous Ashton Turner (20) cheaply. Earlier, it was only Mohammed Shami who initially tested Finch with away-going and in-coming balls but once the Australia captain got his eye in, he went about his business without fuss. Khawaja continued with his rich form, striking boundaries easily. His straight boundary, punched on the up, off Bhuvneshwar was a treat to watch.
