Zion logo laughed that it was a bit difficult for him and the rest of his Georgia teammates to step out of the shadow of last year’s “generational” defense.

Questions about replacing players taken in the NFL Draft are displayed. How many?

“Speaking for me, a lot,” Logue smiled after practice on Tuesday. “I have family members, really anyone. It certainly comes back a lot.

While not what you would call a key figure, Logue has played a relatively big role for Georgia’s defense in 2021.

Logue estimates he averaged 20-22 reps per game for a defense which was obviously a huge reason the Bulldogs were able to win the 2021 national crown.

But as Georgia prepares to face Oregon in the season opener on Saturday, Logue admits last year’s defensive success is something this year’s unit would like to leave in the past. However, that was easier said than done.

“It’s getting old,” Logue said. “It’s a compliment, but you know, you kind of want to step in and create your own legacy. So I sort of see it two ways, but I try to put it in the past and look towards this year.

… Later, Logue talked about being ready to face a different opponent and said he was tired of hitting Georgia’s offensive line.

As a follow-up, Logue was asked specifically who he was most tired of hitting.

“Man, I’d probably say big Devin Willock. He’s a man,” Logue said. “That’s 335 pounds full man right there. You get that in a double team, it’s a lot to deal with.

Highlights from the Kirby Smart Press Conference

… Thunderstorms forced the Bulldogs indoors for the final two-thirds of Tuesday’s practice.

“We wanted to be out in the field all day, but we only got about a third of it because of the storms,” ​​Smart said. “There were no problems, however, when we got inside, as the red zone was the focus today.”

…Smart said they will decide later this week if Will Mushchamp Where Glenn Schuman will be in the press box for Saturday’s game.

…Smart said the second defensive back Javon Bullard has been “a ball hawk” all camp. Smart said Bullard – who mainly worked at star – has impressed with his physique and toughness and comes to work every day.

… Regarding the tight end Arik Gilbert, Smart said: “It’s hard to gauge how close he is to where he needs to be. The sky is the limit, but it has to be consistent. No one wants it more than him.

… Smart paid a nice compliment to the freshman linebacker Milestone Walker: “He is a hard and physical player. He plays both as an inside backer and as a rusher in the sub-packs. Smart also notes that Walker is a coach’s son, something close to his heart. “He’s going to be one hell of a player,” Smart said.

More accessories for McIntosh

… By all accounts, running back Kenny McIntosh had a great pre-season month.

Center Sedrick Van Pran can testify to that. When asked what the biggest difference was in the seniors compared to last year, Van Pran had a lot to say.

“How explosive he is,” he said. “It’s amazing how you can give this guy an inch, just a hole, he can take it 70 yards. That’s something we learned during our team running times, through our scrimmages, anyway. If you give this guy a hole, he can shake things up.

…Van Pran also answered a question about which young Georgian players he thinks will make headlines.

“I’m excited about a lot of young guys. Mikel (williams), there are Pops (Jamon Dumas Johnson) … I know he’s not one of the youngest, but I’m excited about the growth he’s taken,” Van Pran said. “He did a good job aligning our defence, knowing the missions and taking control from the front.”

Second-year cornerback Kamara Lassiterwho is expected to open opposite Kelee Ringo, has also been an eye opener.

“I’m really excited about Kamari,” Van Pran said. “I call him ‘Lockdown’. He’s my guy, but I’m excited about all these guys and I want to see them succeed.

‘Big Beefy’ continues to push Nolan Smith

Lassiter isn’t the only Bulldog with a new nickname.

outside linebacker Robert Beal Jr. apparently has one too, courtesy of Nolan Smith.

“Big Beefy,” he brings a lot of things,” Smith said. “He brings a lot to my game in terms of how he pushes me to be better. We push each other every day. »

Beal Jr. led the Bulldogs last year with 6.5 sacks.

“It boosted his confidence,” Smart said. “He’s very confident in the system now, and we’re confident in him because of the playing time he’s gained. He’s had a really good side. He’s playing physically, he’s playing hard. He’s created a great opportunity.”

Don’t ask about offensive line starters, dadgum it

No, Smart didn’t REALLY say that, but he might as well.

Although fans and the media may want to know, Smart doesn’t bother to answer questions about potential starters when those decisions haven’t been made.

So when Smart was asked if he knew who would be opening guard on Saturday, his answer was predictable.

“I know that’s all you want to know is who’s going to start, but there’s a bunch of guys there in between diviner (Willock), Jared (Wilson), Tate (Ratledge), and (xavier) framework who all pass there,” Smart said. “Micah (Morris) gets repetitions, Dylan (Fairchild) gets repetitions, and Warren Ericson replaced some in custody,” Smart said. “So it’s not a question of, okay, it’s going to be these two guys. It’s going to be the guys who will play and train the best, and at the moment we haven’t decided who is going to take the first snap so everyone can talk about who took the first snap. We’ll watch and say, who’s playing the best in the game and giving us the best opportunity.

Still no quarterback named for WVU’s next Backyard Brawl | WVU Mountaineers https://thistuesday.org/still-no-quarterback-named-for-wvus-next-backyard-brawl-wvu-mountaineers/ Tue, 23 Aug 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://thistuesday.org/still-no-quarterback-named-for-wvus-next-backyard-brawl-wvu-mountaineers/ MORGANTOWN – The biggest news to come out of West Virginia football coach Neal Brown’s press conference on Monday was that there was no news to report on who his starting quarterback would be in the 105th renewal. from the Backyard Brawl, just 10 days away in Pittsburgh.

MORGANTOWN – The biggest news to come out of West Virginia football coach Neal Brown’s press conference on Monday was that there was no news to report on who his starting quarterback would be in the 105th renewal. from the Backyard Brawl, just 10 days away in Pittsburgh.

The gathered media expected to hear that Brown had chosen veteran JT Daniels, the former 5-star quarterback who started as a freshman at USC and also at Georgia before transferring to the WVU this year.

There was what seemed like a huge void at the job with Jarrett Doege having been traded and with no real experience ready to stop behind him in as crucial a season as Brown will ever face as a coach.

It was a no-brainer and it almost certainly still is, but Brown wasn’t about to say that Daniels won the job over last year’s replacement Garret Greene, this freshman phenom. year Nicco Marchiol and last year’s freshman rookie Will “Goose” Crowder.

Brown wasn’t ready to announce anything.

“I’m not really going to announce anything today,” Brown said.

When he said that, it was like the air left the room.

Was he playing games with Pitt? Almost certainly not. It’s not like they haven’t spent their time preparing for Daniels.

“I’m not trying to be shy about it,” Brown said, sounding quite coy. “I will announce it before the game.”

He better, if not to the media, if not to the fans, if not to Pitt, at least to his quarterback room so that someone knows how to get away with the offense.

Of course, the team already knows who it will be…not because he said so but because he didn’t have to tell them, like he said on media day. of the Big East.

“Quarterback competitions, when they’re won, it’s obvious,” he said. “Your team knows it. It’s not like you have to post an announcement on social media or stand in front of the team and say, ‘That’s our starter’. When a quarterback wins this competition, it is very clear. It is clear who the team believes in, who they are productive for. Everyone wants to talk about it but it’s really the easiest to choose.

Still, he insists it hasn’t been that easy.

“There was no final decision,” he said.

From there, Greg Hunter of the Gold and Blue News attempted to enter the back door, asking him what he had seen in all three quarterbacks.

Brown was more than willing to get into it, but he started with Marchiol, not Daniels.

Was there a clue in there? Is Brown really considering starting the southpaw in Arizona? Certainly, he spoke well of Marchiol.

“Speaking of Nicco first, I really like his progression from spring to fall camp,” Brown said. “What a lot of true first-year quarterbacks don’t get is a lot of rep like a game against first defense. He has a bunch. He had a bunch of them in the spring. He had a bunch of them at fall camp.

Again, any clue? Maybe not, because in practice it’s normally attack #2 against defense #1. Still, Marchiol made progress against the No.1 defence.

“His progress is good to see,” Brown said. “The knowledge he’s shown of attack, of what the defense is trying to do, you can see the game is slowing down for him.”

He then went to Greene.

“He has matured. He needs to keep working on his decision-making, but from a punctuality standpoint, the throws he’s made have been flashed. And he got faster.

It’s important because Greene offers a running alternative to the offense.

“On the GPS he ran some of the fastest times in our camp,” Brown said.

He eventually got to Daniels, but it wasn’t like he won her heart and soul, let alone the job.

“He has experience, he is very mature. We talk about his intelligence,” Brown said, calling him “the smartest quarterback we’ve ever had.”

“He has improved. You know, summer training is so different when it comes to top speed. You don’t throw against a defense. He just had these 14 or 15 practices to cut his time and you can see it improving,” Brown said.

Brown said he feels the future is in good hands with his young quarterbacks, but for him, after a 6-7 season and a nasty loss to Minnesota to end his third year at WVU, he needs to know that his own future is now.

It’s a huge season for him and the opener, fair or not, is the most important game he will play all season.

With that in mind, he needs what Daniels displays as his greatest asset – experience in the big games.

Brown noted that Greene played Oklahoma last year in a nationally televised game on Saturday and that Marchiol had a high showdown against one of the top programs in the country, but, folks, that’s not nothing like playing your rival Backyard Brawl in a sold-out 67,000-fan stadium at an NFL stadium down the road.

Brown admitted that when trying to decide the starter for any position among young players they do all they can to put pressure on, but admitted ‘you can’t mimic that in training’ .

You must have been there and Daniels threw for over 300 yards while starting out as a true USC freshman in rivalry situations against Notre Dame and UCLA while passing for 300 yards against Texas.

Then, he threw over 400 yards over Georgia after coming back from one of several career-derailing injuries and pulled off the knockout blow by beating Clemson at a neutral site.

OK, that wasn’t one of his best outings, throwing for just 135 yards and only putting up 10 points on the board, but he completed 22 of 30 passes in that atmosphere.

Because of this, Brown really doesn’t have much choice but to go with Daniels if he’s healthy and, he admitted, they’re almost ready to make a decision on quarterback. it’s hard to imagine Brown risking losing his first Backyard Brawl meeting with anyone but Daniels at quarterback.

The deadline to register if you plan to vote in the August 2 primary is fast approaching.

Registration registers will be closed on Tuesday, with advance voting by mail and in person beginning Wednesday, July 13.

0706-Hedge 1

The Aug. 2 primary includes a question for voters regarding the constitutionality of abortion rights in Kansas, a topic that has garnered more attention in the past two weeks following the Supreme Court’s ruling in United States to quash Roe v. Wade, who for nearly 50 years protected the right to choose at the federal level.

A no would not change the constitution. A yes vote would affirm that there is no constitutional right to abortion or to require the government to fund abortion. Hedge says a yes vote wouldn’t officially ban abortion, at least not right away.

0706-Hedge 2

Since summer is a busy season for travel, Hedge notes that some may opt to vote in advance for convenience, either in person or by mail.

0706-Hedge 4

The last day to request an early mail-in ballot is July 26.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. He did, however, take a stand on the matter, pleading for a no.

The Value Them Both Coalition pleads for yes. The coalition is led by Kansas Family Voice (formerly Family Policy Alliance of Kansas), Kansans for Life and the Kansas Catholic Conference.

Tuesday news and notes from around the world:

You’ve no doubt come across genetic testing when looking for horses to sell or stall. But while we’ve relied on the same tests for many years to spot the likes of PSSM, are they actually accurate and useful or are they just red flags? [Find out here]

They don’t always get the attention and headlines they deserve, but the owners of our sport are pretty cool. Meet Steve and Vicki Sukup, who own a thriving business, a Belmont Stakes winner – and share Renkum Corsair, Elisa Wallace’s exciting mount. [They always bet on the rider]

We all embarrassed ourselves at some point during the competition. (If I’m being honest, I do this pretty much every time I go out one way or another – like the time I went for my trail and fell face down in the mud just in front of the busy dressage warm-up- and then Francis Whittington asked me if I’d poop every time I saw him for MONTHS.) Either way, take comfort in knowing you’re not not alone – the pros have some pretty good blunders to their name too. [Oops, I did it again – horse edition]

Although we still mourn the loss of Irish Tattersalls International, the George Mernagh Fund is about to be put to good use. Created in honor of its namesake, the founder of this great event, it is now used to provide training scholarships to young riders to help build on Ireland’s eventing heritage.

The 2022 draft takes place on Thursday, and we’re going to have dozens upon dozens of trade rumors and draft speculation swirling before that. We’ve already seen two first-round picks trade hands with Denver acquiring the 30th pick from Oklahoma City and the Dallas Mavericks giving up the 26th pick in a deal with Houston that nets them Christian Wood. As we head into the draft on Thursday, it’s time for a mock draft.

Every year, dummy drafts fuel anticipation of what might happen that night. I love reading them. I love creating them. And this year is no different.

Ahead of Thursday’s draft, here’s my final mock draft, pick 1-58 (Miami and Milwaukee both had second-round picks excommunicated from the draft due to fraudulent transgressions). With the first round we look at the expected picks or maybe even what I think might happen based on rumors and innuendo and scuttlebut around the league. Additionally, we’ll look at the odds of the pick being distributed and the specific needs of the team.

In the second round, we will play a roster, reserve or G League game – in which we will try to determine if it is a selection for a roster spot, to play abroad or to immediately develop into the G League.

WASHINGTON — Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is scheduled to testify before the House committee on Tuesday, Jan. 6, about the extraordinary pressure he came under from former President Donald Trump to “find 11,780” votes. who could swing the state to prevent Joe Biden’s election victory

Raffensperger, along with his deputy Gabe Sterling and Arizona State House Speaker Rusty Bowers, are expected to be key witnesses when the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, uprising resumes on Tuesday.

The focus will be on how the former president and his allies vigorously lobbied officials in key battleground states with plans to reject ballots or tallies from entire states to overturn the results. of the 2020 presidential election.

Additionally, the panel will highlight how Trump knew his relentless pressure campaign could potentially provoke violence against state and local officials and their families, but pursued it anyway, according to a select committee aide.

“We will show brave state officials who stood up and said they would not go along with this plan to recall legislatures in session or uncertify the results for Joe Biden,” Rep. Adam Schiff said. D-Calif., one of the Democratic members of the committee, told CNN on Sunday.

The hearing, the panel’s fourth this month, is the latest effort to delve into Trump’s unprecedented bid to stay in power, a sprawling ploy that the Jan. 6 committee chairman likened to an “attempt to Rebellion”. look at how Trump relied on Raffensperger to invalidate ballots voters cast for Biden.And then he appealed to state lawmakers in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and other disputed states to reject the election results of their own voters.

Although the committee cannot charge Trump with any crime, the Justice Department is closely monitoring the panel’s work. Trump’s actions in Georgia also come under scrutiny. grand jury investigationand the district attorney is expected to announce his findings this year.

Raffensperger, Georgia’s top election official, rejected Trump’s request that he “find” enough votes to overturn Biden’s victory in the state – a request recorded in a phone call days before the Jan. 6 attack.

During the call, Trump repeatedly cited refuted fraud allegations and raised the prospect of a “criminal offense” if Georgian officials did not change the vote count. The state had counted its votes three times before certifying Biden’s victory by a margin of 11,779.

Sterling, Raffensperger’s chief operating officer, has become a notable figure in Georgia’s lengthy post-election count and presidential ballot recount, with his regular updates often broadcast live in a divided nation. At one point, the soft-spoken Republican implored Americans to tone down the impassioned rhetoric.

“Death threats, physical threats, intimidation – it’s too much, it’s not right,” said Sterling, a Republican.

Bowers is expected to discuss the pressure he faced to overturn the Arizona results – demands from Trump advisers that the Republican state leader on Monday called “juvenile.”

In a interview with the Associated Press after arriving in Washington ahead of the hearing, Bowers said he should be asked about a call with Trump in which attorney Rudy Giuliani floated the idea of ​​replacing Arizona voters with those who would vote for Trump.

Bowers also revealed a second phone call with Trump in December 2020 which he said was mostly a casual conversation, although Trump also referenced their first conversation.

On Tuesday, Wandrea “Shay” Moss, one of two Georgian election workers who also testified sued for defamation in December 2020 against a conservative site. Moss claimed One America News Network falsely spread allegations that she and her mother engaged in voter fraud during the election.

The trial, which was settled in Aprilalso names Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani as a strong supporter of the baseless claim, which the mother and daughter say has led to intense harassment, both in person and online.

The select committee also plans on Tuesday to unravel the elaborate “fake voters” scheme that was intended to halt Biden’s election victory. The plan saw fake voters in seven battlegrounds – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada and New Mexico – sign certificates falsely stating that Trump, not Biden, had won their states.

Conservative law professor John Eastman, Trump’s attorney, pushed fake voters in the weeks following the election. Trump and Eastman summoned hundreds of voters in a January 2, 2021 call, encouraging them to send alternative voters from their states where Trump’s team alleged fraud.

The fake voter certificates were produced and mailed to the National Archives and Congress. But the effort ultimately failed, as Vice President Mike Pence refused repeated requests from Trump to stop certifying Biden’s victory on January 6, 2021 – a power he did not possess in his purely ceremonial role. .

The committee says it will also show on Tuesday that it has gathered enough evidence through its more than 1,000 interviews and tens of thousands of documents to link the various efforts to overturn the election directly to Trump.

At least 20 people connected to the fake voter scheme have been subpoenaed by the House panel, including former Trump campaign staff, state party officials and state lawmakers.

“We will show in a hearing what the role of the president was in trying to get states to nominate alternative voter lists, how this scheme initially depended on the hope that the legislatures would reconvene and bless him” , Schiff said.

Schiff told the Los Angeles Times on Monday that the hearing will also delve into the “intimate role” former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows had in the plot to pressure lawmakers and election officials. of the state of Georgia.

Raffensperger’s public testimony comes weeks after he appeared before a special grand jury in Georgia, which is investigating whether Trump and others unlawfully tried to interfere in the state’s 2020 election.

In retaliation for Raffensperger’s refusal to support his election lies, Trump recruited a primary challenger in an effort to impeach him. But Raffensperger narrowly withheld the threat in the primary last month, leaving him in a position to compete with a Democrat in the general election.

MORGANTOWN — Two West Virginia University undergraduate students will spend the next year conducting funded research to better understand neurodegenerative diseases and inflammatory responses in respiratory disease through the Beckman Scholars Program.

Biochemistry majors Zachary Ellis, from Renick, and Bryan Ho, from Martinsburg, were named to WVU’s third and final cohort for the award, which was originally given to the University in 2020. Both are members from the WVU Honors College.

WVU is among the top 12 research universities in the United States selected for the competitive program. Awarded by the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, the 15-month mentored research experience is for outstanding undergraduate students in chemistry, biological sciences, or interdisciplinary combinations of the two.

Ellis and Ho will receive a stipend of $18,200 for their research and $2,800 for supplies or travel to present at conferences. Their mentor teachers will receive stipends of $5,000.

“Zachary and Bryan are extremely talented student researchers who recognized the importance of the scientific process early in their academic careers,” said Amy Hessl, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research. “Participating in the Beckman Scholars program will allow them to deepen their knowledge and skills as well as prepare for rewarding scientific careers.”

Zachary Ellis

As a freshman at WVU, Ellis didn’t know where he wanted to be in four years — or even beyond — but knew he loved science and wanted to explore undergraduate research opportunities.

His participation in the research apprenticeship program during his first year on campus set Ellis on the path to self-discovery. It also gave him the skills he needed to become a Beckman Fellow.

While exploring mentor and lab options, Ellis found Justin Legleiter, a chemistry professor at Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, and his biophysical chemistry research lab.

“It means biology, physics and chemistry,” Ellis said. “I liked all three, so I thought maybe it was a good place to be. I was able to apply my interest in science in ways that I had never really considered, that which allowed me to discover my passion for research.

His initial research project focused on developing techniques and protocols to measure mechanical changes in biological samples and allowed him to transition easily to this new endeavor.

As a Beckman Fellow, Ellis hopes to better understand Huntington’s disease by studying the changes seen in Caenorhabditis elegans, microscopic roundworms often used in studies of aging because they exhibit specific mechanical changes as they age.

Huntington’s disease is a rare inherited disease that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. Ellis will compare changes in C. elegans with pathogenic and non-pathogenic Huntington protein fragments.

According to Legleiter, using tiny transparent worms has several advantages, including shorter lifespan, ease of maintenance, and the ability to use fluorescence microscopy.

“The other really cool thing is the model of C. elegans we’re using that expresses huntingtin proteins in peripheral tissues, as opposed to just the nervous system,” he said. “A lot of model species for Huntington’s disease only exhibit it in neurons, but we’re able to see how peripheral tissues mutate huntingtin, which isn’t really studied much. It gives more insight. “a sense of novelty to research. It could also expand our knowledge of the impact of huntingtin aggregation on peripheral systems.”

Ultimately, Ellis hopes her research can provide a building block for identifying more treatment options.

“Currently, there is no cure for Huntington’s disease. There are treatment options, but they are incredibly limited,” he said. “If the work we’re doing can contribute to the overarching problem there, that’s really what we’re trying to achieve.”

Bryan Ho

As a philosophy of life, Ho believes that all he wants is “on the other side of fear” and it takes a number of “uncomfortable yeses” to achieve his goals.

He remembers an advanced chemistry lab during his freshman year where he accidentally broke an unusually large number of beakers and had trouble following all the protocols.

“I was interested in research and didn’t want to do something in a traditional lab. I thought I was going to smash it all again,” he said. “I had no experience when I started. It was the biggest learning curve.

Now, as a senior with more confidence and research experience, Ho has said “yes” to a program that will fund a computer research project that could lead to the discovery of new, affordable drugs to reduce inflammatory responses in people. people with respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Alongside Blake Mertz, associate professor of chemistry, he is working to characterize the structure-function relationship of the platelet activating factor receptor, a protein responsible for the primary inflammatory response in many respiratory diseases.

Working with a library of 50,000 ligands – small molecules that bind irreversibly to the target protein – the researchers will use molecular docking and molecular dynamics simulations to observe how the platelet activating factor receptor responds to each molecule.

The computational approach will help researchers map the structure-function relationship as well as identify candidates for drug development.

“To experimentally screen a database of ligands of this size would take an enormous amount of time and effort,” Mertz said. “By tackling the problem with computational approaches, we can reduce the time to identify viable ligands to around a year. This not only makes it an excellent research project, but one that fits well with the timeline of the Beckman Scholars program.

Jurors deliberating on the dueling libel allegations of actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard adjourned on Friday without delivering a verdict, leaving the resolution of the widely watched six-week trial to next week.

Depp, the 58-year-old ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star, sued his ex-wife Heard in Virginia for $50 million and claimed she defamed him when she called herself ” public figure representing domestic violence” in an opinion piece she wrote.

Heard, 36, countersued for $100 million, claiming Depp smeared him when his lawyer called his accusations a “hoax”.

The seven-person jury deliberated for more than two hours on Friday. They will resume talks on Tuesday after the US Memorial Day holiday.

Depp denied hitting Heard or a woman and said it was she who became violent in their relationship.

“Mr. Depp suffered persistent verbal, physical and emotional abuse from Ms. Heard,” attorney Camille Vasquez said in closing arguments on Friday.

She said Depp’s allegations of abuse of Heard, including a sexual assault with a liquor bottle, were “savage, exaggerated and implausible” and had ruined his reputation in Hollywood and among fans.

“We ask that you bring Mr. Depp back to life by telling the world that Mr. Depp is not the abuser that Ms. Heard says he is,” Vasquez said.

Heard’s attorney, Benjamin Rottenborn, in his closing argument reminded jurors of Depp’s explicit text messages to friends or associates.

“It’s a window into the heart and mind of America’s favorite pirate,” Rottenborn said. “He’s the real Johnny Depp.”

At the center of the court case is Heard’s December 2018 opinion piece in the Washington Post, in which she made the statement on domestic violence. The article never mentioned Depp by name, but his attorney told jurors it was clear Heard was referring to him.

Heard’s lawyers argued that she had told the truth and that her comments were covered by freedom of speech under the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

“Your key question to answer is ‘does the First Amendment give Ms. Heard the right to write the words she wrote? Rottenborn told the jury. “You can’t simultaneously defend the First Amendment and rule in favor of Johnny Depp.”

Depp and Heard met in 2011 while filming “The Rum Diary” and married in February 2015. Their divorce was finalized about two years later.

During six weeks of proceedings, jurors listened to recordings of the former couple’s fights and saw graphic photos of Depp’s bloody finger.

Depp said Heard threw a bottle of vodka that cut off the top of his finger during an argument in 2015. Heard denied hurting Depp’s finger and said Depp sexually assaulted her that night with a bottle of liquor.

The testimony was widely streamed live on social media, drawing large audiences to hear details about the couple’s troubled relationship.

Once among Hollywood’s biggest stars, Depp said Heard’s allegations cost him “everything”. A new “Pirates” movie has been put on hold, and Depp has been replaced in the “Fantastic Beasts” movie franchise, a “Harry Potter” spin-off.

Depp lost a libel case less than two years ago against the Sun, a British tabloid that called him a “wife beater”. A High Court judge in London ruled that he repeatedly assaulted Heard.

Depp’s attorneys filed a lawsuit in the United States in Fairfax County, Virginia, because the Washington Post is printed there. The newspaper is not accused.

Prepare to be frozen.

The National Weather Service is issuing a frost warning that will take effect overnight tonight and last through Tuesday morning.

Weather officials say sub-freezing temperatures are expected to drop to 28 degrees in the region.

Meteorologist Ray Miller says freezing conditions can kill crops, vegetation and any gardening you may have started “If you’ve already started gardening, if you have some of the more delicate plants outside…really anything that can’t survive a freeze, you want to at least cover it if possible. Anything potted, bring it inside if possible.

Miller also says the cold is deadly to animals and can damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.

Experts say that to avoid freezing and possible water lines, residents should wrap them, drain them or let them drain slowly.

If you have pets that normally stay outdoors, local shelters advise you to bring them inside or contact them if you need help.

***More information
