And although it’s still not clear what the future brings, the positivity and love that I’m feeling for moe.’s and my next chapter is beyond exciting. I feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas, and our energy as a band, is like nothing I’ve experienced before. Thank you all for the well wishes, prayers, and healing vibes.”moe.

Record number of holiday travelers predicted

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Estimates show more than 54 million Americans will travel during the Thanksgiving weekend. Indiana State Police will join local agencies and agencies in other states for Operation C.A.R.E.Operation C.A.R.E.—short for Combined Accident Reduction Effort—reduces crashes by enforcing laws relating to impaired driving, seat belts, speeding and young-adult driver licenses. It is a year-round effort that increases traffic enforcement around major travel holidays including Christmas and New Year’s Eve.Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter stated, “We are proud to have been the co-founding agency of C.A.R.E. back in 1977, along with the Michigan State Police.” Carter concluded, “It’s important for all to remember, this isn’t about writing tickets; it’s about saving lives.  And now 41 years later there is no doubt that agencies who participate in this project has saved countless lives.”Overtime patrols and equipment purchases are supported with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration funds distributed by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.Impaired DrivingIn every state, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. In Indiana, drivers under age 21 with a BAC of .02 or higher are subject to fines and a license suspension for up to one year. This year, ISP troopers received 777 new portable breath test devices as part of more than 2,600 such devices recently purchased for law enforcement agencies across Indiana.Unlike with alcohol-impaired drivers, there is no quick field test for the many prescription, over-the-counter and illegal drugs that can also impair drivers. Indiana police agencies are trained to recognize and enforce drug-impaired driving. ISP advises anyone taking a new or higher dose of a drug to speak with their doctor or avoid driving until they know the effect the medication could have while behind the wheel. Even over-the-counter medication can cause impairment, especially when combined with alcohol or a second drug.Getting arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated will result in jail time and loss of a driver’s license, carrying an average cost of about $10,000, including car towing, attorney fees, fines, court costs, lost time at work and other hefty expenses.Seat Belts2018 marks 30 years since Indiana’s seat belt law took effect. Since then, Indiana and 35 other states have enacted primary seat belt laws, allowing police officers to ticket unrestrained drivers or passengers even if no other traffic violation has taken place. Indiana law also requires all passengers under the age of 8 to be in an approved car seat or booster seat.Indiana has made great progress through stronger laws and highly visible enforcement—seat belt usage studies show an increase from 62 percent in 2000 to 93 percent in 2017. Yet the small percentage who don’t buckle up make up half of those killed on our roadways. In 2017, 310 of the 607 people killed in passenger vehicle crashes in Indiana were not wearing seat belts.While pickup trucks and SUVs may feel safer because they are larger and sit higher on the road, state troopers caution against drivers or passengers feeling a false sense of security. Unrestrained occupants of pickup trucks are 12 times more likely to be killed than those wearing seat belts. For unrestrained SUV occupants, the risk is even greater at 18 times more likely to die than restrained occupants.ICJI partners with the Indiana University Public Policy Institute to analyze annual data from the state’s crash-records database. A series of 2017 Fact Sheets summarizing a variety of topics including alcohol-impaired driving, dangerous driving, and seat belts are available at https://trafficsafety.iupui.edu/topical-facts.last_img read more

The highlights of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s book launch

first_img “Every word I say is a big risk for me. I am happy that I don’t have an electronic tag. I think it’s not far from (that). I also think that £50,000 in the world where we live today is an absolute disgrace. And I also think that the possibility of getting a stadium ban is also something absolutely astonishing.” On perceived inconsistencies in the FA’s disciplinary process, mentioning Wenger in all but name: “There is something that, now, we know. One, we can push people in the technical area. The word ‘afraid’ is a punishment, and a hard punishment. But to say the referee was ‘weak and naive’, referring to one of the top referees, not just in this country, also in Europe, to call him ‘weak and naive’ we can do.” On his future: “If you ask me how many years I’m still going to coach, I’d risk 15 more. I’m in the middle: I did 15, I have 15 more to do. I’ll finish at 67. Maybe later if I can. Can I stay 15 more years at Chelsea Football Club? I don’t think so. I don’t think modern football allows it any more, so normally I will not finish my career at Chelsea. I would like to, but I don’t think it’s possible.” On a future book, insisting it will include more titles, which he celebrates by showing the number of successes on his hands: “The next book would have lots of chapters. The first one will be the moment I’m living now, with four defeats in eight Premier League matches, with two defeats at home which is more than the defeats I’d had in the previous 100 matches at home. But, for sure, it’ll be a book with lots of good moments, lots of cups, lots of trophies. I think I wrote it (in) there: I still have two fingers, but I have feet. So I don’t think I’m going to be just 10 times a champion in my career. I have feet.” On the photo at Old Trafford, when Mourinho’s Porto beat Manchester United en route to winning the 2004 Champions League: “That photo represents a dramatic change in my career. It’s a picture which put me in the eyes of the football world. I was standing before the ball hit the net and I was fast. I’m still quite fast, but at that time I was even faster. It was a great run and an iconic picture in a moment that changed my career.” Mourinho wrote next to the picture that the following day he “had two big English clubs knocking on my door. A blue and a red.” The “red” is believed to be Liverpool. He says now: “Don’t try to find controversy in such a clean book. It’s gone. It was 10 years ago.” Ahead of his second Chelsea chapter, Mourinho wrote “Tradition says: ‘Don’t go back to a club where you were happy before’. Perfect – another challenge is exactly what I wanted!”. He says he has no regrets: “I’m so happy to be back, so happy to do what we managed to do last season. And we want to do more. Obviously I’m not going to run away from the moment. The results are bad, but I’m not going to run away from it and I believe more good moments are going to happen again. I signed a new contract a few months ago. When I signed it was not to run away from responsibilities, but to work and fight and wait for the results of our work.” Press Association Jose Mourinho on Thursday night hit out at the Football Association, Arsene Wenger and revealed he does not expect to finish his career at Chelsea – just three highlights of a media conference at Waterstones Piccadilly to promote his book MOURINHO. center_img Here Press Association Sport looks at some more: On the Football Association’s punishment – a £50,000 fine and one-match suspended stadium ban: last_img read more
