Stay on target If you still feel the need for speed, Tom Cruise has some exciting news for you: On Thursday, the Top Gun actor crashed San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), where he revealed a new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, the action-packed sequel we’ve been waiting for since the ’80s.The trailer, which was released by Paramount Pictures on Thursday, teases all the things we love about Top Gun, including Cruise engaging in some thrilling jet stunts in the sky. Except, Top Gun: Maverick isn’t about Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) climbing the ranks, rather, it’s about Mitchell not quitting his role as a captain at a time where fighter pilots could be replaced by technology, like drones, in coming years, Esquire reported.“I was always asked ‘When are you going to do another one?’ Well, you’ve been very patient with me. I felt like it was my responsibility to really deliver for you,” Cruise said at an SDCC panel on Thursday.Top Gun premiered more than 30 years ago, but Mitchell’s legacy lives on and as the trailer shows, he’s not ready to retire or stop flying anytime soon, Deadline noted.“Maverick you should be headed to extinction,” Ed Harris tells Cruise in the trailer.Cruise replies, “Maybe so, sir, but not today.”Top Gun: Maverick will premiere in theaters on June 26, 2020.More on Geek.com:SDCC 2019: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Why He’s ‘Addicted’ to ‘Terminator’ ‘It Chapter Two’ Final Trailer Teases Pennywise’s Return at SDCC 2019‘Game of Thrones’ Showrunners Are Not Coming to SDCC 2019 ‘Death Saves’ D&D Streetwear: Interview With Designer D…Wesley Snipes Says ‘It’s All Good’ With Marvel Studios’ ‘Blade’ Reboot Film
The archaeological mission also found remains of previously undiscovered buildings, and other treasures such as gold and bronze coins, and jewelry.The “completely destroyed” temple was found inside the southern canal of the sunken city of Heracleion, according to Franck Goddio, head of the Egyptian-European Archaeological Mission of the European Institute of Marine Archeology. The mission also uncovered bronze coins, believed to be from the reign of King Ptolemy II, utensils from the second and third centuries BC, and the remains of a smaller Greek temple covered in the layers of sand and silt.Archaeologists also uncovered coins at the sunken ancient Egyptian city. (Photo Credit: Christoph Gerigk / Franck Goddio / Hilti Foundation)In the site of the submerged ruins of Canopus, archaeologists found previously unmapped buildings, stretching the map of the ancient city to the south. The buildings contained pottery, bronze coins from the Ptolemaic period, and gold coins from the Byzantine era, the Ministry of Antiquities said.The city of Heracleion (also known by its Egyptian name Thonis, and also called Thonis-Heracleion) was one of Egypt’s most important harbor towns between about 600 and 100 BC. Located on the Mediterranean coast at the mouth of the Canopic branch of the Nile, the city guarded the western entrance to Egypt and controlled its maritime trade.Built on unstable wetlands and weakened by earthquakes, tsunamis, and rising sea levels, the city collapsed into the sea, probably after a severe flood during the eighth century AD. It was hidden away, submerged for over a thousands years.But in 1999, after a five-year search, the ruins submerged in the sea were finally located and explored by Goddio and the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM). Goddio has since excavated colossal statues, inscriptions and architectural elements, jewelery and coins, ritual objects and ceramics, at the site. But even with the recent discovery of the temple, buildings, and objects, Goddio estimates that only 5 percent of the site has been explored.More on Geek.com:Ancient Egyptian Tomb With More Than 30 Mummies FoundNewly Discovered 4,000-Year-Old Tomb Stuns Archaeologists‘Untouched’ Tomb Discovered in Egypt Amazing Hoard of 1,000-Year-Old Coins Discovered by Metal Detectorists7th-Century Skeleton From Merovingian Era Unearthed in France Stay on target Marine archaeologists have found the remains of a destroyed temple at the underwater site of the ruins of Heracleion and Canopus in Egypt.According to Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities, researchers spent two months studying the site, located in the Gulf of Abi Qir in Alexandria, and used side-scan sonar to conduct surveys of the seafloor.

CAMAS — Workers at the paper mill in downtown Camas have been in labor negotiations with owner Georgia-Pacific Corp. for nearly two-and-a-half years, but there’s no contract in sight, according to the workers’ union.The Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers Local 5 represent some 350 employees at the company’s pulp and paper mill, where workers have been on the job without a contract since the last deal expired in May 2014. The latest offer from Georgia-Pacific, union representatives contend, cuts wages for new hires, drops a handful of paid holidays and offers “substandard” health insurance.“It’s the worst economic offer I’ve ever seen and I’ve been doing this for awhile,” said Jim Anderson, a union negotiator.The current offer, he said, would pay new hires 20 percent less at entry-level jobs and raise deductible and out-of-pocket maximums on health coverage. The union is also fighting what it calls “attacks” on seniority.Representatives with the Atlanta-based company, which has been a subsidiary of Koch Industries since 2005, said the proposed contract is the same as agreements at other Georgia-Pacific mills in the Pacific Northwest. The company owns the Camas mill and three in Oregon.

Back-to-back spills of liquid substances in an alleyway in Uptown Village recently left some neighborhood businesses fuming.Bryan Shull, owner of Trap Door Brewing, called it a “nightmare” when, in November, a sheen of oil coursed across the floor of his newly built grilled cheese sandwich food cart connected to his brewery at 2315 Main St.A jug of oil, believed to be cooking oil, was run over by a passing vehicle near 25th Street, according to an incident report from the City of Vancouver Water Resources Protection Program, a division of the Public Works Department.The oil in the alleyway, which runs from 22nd to 25th streets behind a block of businesses that includes Bleu Door Bakery and Arnada Naturals, reportedly started spreading on the wet road conditions that day.Shull said it was smeared further by unwitting passing cars and tracked into businesses on the shoes of people.“It was all over back here,” Shull said in the alley. “Cars were pulling up, driving and taking it down all down Broadway and all up Fourth Plain, and it just spread.”Shull, a former engineer for a renewably energy company, and some other employees in the area started to try and clean it up themselves, but weren’t much help, he said. A crew from the city arrived to clean it up as best as they could, but the damage was done, Shull said.
The weather is beginning to feel more fall-like as we get more clouds drifting by, cooler days and even light sprinkles or showers around the county. Nothing major yet, but the weather pattern has changed from last week.We had a large area of high pressure off the coast for a couple of weeks keeping weather systems to our north and only brushing us at times. We shot back up into the 90s earlier last week before a slow cool-down with highs in the 80s Thursday and Friday.Saturday was pleasant with afternoon temperatures in the low 70s.Now we have a large area of low pressure off our coast in the Gulf of Alaska spinning around. This will continue for a good share of the upcoming week. A series of weak systems will move inland and bring us an increased chance of showers. At this point, most rainfall from any storms will be light, a tenth of an inch maybe here in the lowlands if we are lucky.I’m still looking for a good soaker to arrive, but I doubt we’ll get one unless one front enhances overhead. So, we keep a chance of light rain or showers Monday through Thursday. This means rain could fall at any time but also partial clearing as well. That low spinning off the coast is like a roulette wheel, where she stops no one knows.Astronomically, autumn will arrive at 6:54 p.m. Sept. 22, but signs of fall are everywhere. I see that pumpkins are piled high at some grocery stores, and fall chrysanthemums are bright and colorful waiting to be taken home. Soon, many of us will be out raking leaves. Yep, the seasons are changing.Patrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is aware of the importance of their upcoming semi-final against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and has claimed that their “season is on the line” for the encounterThe cup-holders will travel to the Allianz Arena on Wednesday to face the Bundesliga champions for the first leg of their semi-final clash with both sides hoping to progress to the final of the Champions League in Kiev on May 26 against either Liverpool or AS Roma.Real, on the back of very disappointing domestic campaign, are aiming to save their season by winning Europe’s elite club competition for a third consecutive time and Ramos is certain that both himself and his teammates are up for the challenge.Report: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…“Our whole season is on the line next Wednesday. We have the opportunity to play another Final and defend the title we conquered last season. We’re in good form and hopefully we will be able to enjoy another Champions League Final,” said Ramos, as reported on ManagingMadrid.The Spanish defender believes that Real have nothing to fear against Bayern, after having defeated the likes of fellow European giants Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus in the previous knockout stages.“We always drew the toughest teams, but it’s better to play them now than in a Final. Bayern are a great team and we know each other fairly well. It would be great to make history,” added Ramos.
Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli has urged his teammates not to underestimate BSC Young Boys suggesting every match in the Champions League is difficult.The Bianconeri defeated Valencia away despite going one man down in the first round of matches, and take on the Swiss side in Turin tomorrow night.“It’s clear to everyone that tomorrow is the second match of the Champions League group stage and it’s very important for us to win tomorrow and maintain maximum points,” Barzagli explained, sitting alongside Coach Max Allegri in the pre-match Press conference.“It’s a dangerous game, difficult because in the Champions League every match is difficult. Every team comes in with great enthusiasm.“We’re starting anew, it’s a different year and we’re really motivated to get to the end, and it’s with that spirit and desire that we face this competition.“We’re thinking about putting in a great performance tomorrow and taking three points.”Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.Barzagli received a standing ovation by the Juventus crowd at the weekend, and he was asked about that, as well as managing his body at the age of 37.“It was really nice because I don’t often come off to that kind of applause. It took me a bit longer to come off because I was enjoying it and the Coach asked me: ‘what is this? A goodbye?’.“I enjoyed it, but I always think about giving my best for the team.“My preparation? Clearly, things have changed in recent years, it’s part of the career of a footballer.“I’ve definitely improved physically, I’m more conditioned than I was a few years ago.“Of course I don’t have the same stamina of a few years ago, but I always try to train with my teammates, and if I need something different we adjust to that.”
For the Brighton and Hove Albion defender, his team deserved more yesterday and he is not happy with how the match played outA Sol Bamba goal in the 90th minute gave a 2-1 win for Cardiff City over rivals Brighton and Hove Albion yesterday in the English Premier League.And for Brighton defender Shane Duffy, the goal should have been called offside as he explained how he feels his team deserved more.“There’s a lot of anger at the moment – the winning goal is offside which makes it even harder to take because we defended well, but that’s football,” he told the club’s official website.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“We felt like we deserved something from the game and we felt like we were the better side today, the referee has a tough job but it’s also tough for us to accept.”“We knew straight away it was offside and you can see that by our reaction – we didn’t have the luck on Saturday, and we feel we could’ve taken something,” he added.“We have to go away now and regroup over the next few weeks, and make sure we’re ready to hit the ground running after the international break.”“We know it won’t define our season and we felt we deserved something – we’re a good group of players with a good manager so we’ll pick ourselves up,” he concluded.
Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has no doubts that Christian Pulisic will quickly adapt to Premier League football and thrive at ChelseaThe Blues signed the highly-rated Pulisic in a €64m deal this month and have loaned him back to Dortmund for the remainder of this season.Since arriving at Signal Iduna Park in 2015, Pulisic has grown into one of the most exciting young prospects for both European football and the United States.Therefore, Zorc has no doubts that the 20-year-old winger will prove to be a success in the Premier League.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He’s a lad who comes with that typically American self-confidence,” Zorc told ESPN.“Many of his characteristics will help him in England where everything is just little bit more intense than in the Bundesliga.“He has the pace, he’s got the dribbling, he wants to get ahead at all costs. I don’t know a single reason why he wouldn’t make it there.”Dortmund are currently training in Marbella, Spain, ahead of their return to Bundesliga action from the winter break on January 19 away to RB Leipzig.

City Council Rules Committee approves Styrofoam product ban Posted: July 11, 2018 KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A proposal to ban products made with Styrofoam, or expanded polystyrene, in San Diego was approved Wednesday evening by the City Council’s Rules Committee by a 3-2 vote.The proposal would restrict the sale and distribution of food service wares, fish and meat trays, egg cartons, coolers and beach toys made with expanded polystyrene, also called EPS. Take-out food containers made with the plastic foam would also become restricted.The ordinance would mandate the city’s Environmental Services Department to provide a list of safe and affordable alternatives to EPS products. Staff would also develop a process to phase implementation of new rules to limit the impact on small businesses.Representatives from the Surfrider Foundation, 5 Gyres Institute, SD350.org, Teamsters Local 911, California Grocers Association, and Business For Good all spoke in support of the proposal.Chris Duggan, director of government affairs for the California Restaurant Association’s San Diego chapter, called the proposal short-sighted. He said recycled EPS has economic potential.“San Diego has been a leader in sustainability by expanding its curbside program which has resulted in reducing waste in landfills. In fact, early results have indicated that more material such as plastics and expanded polystyrene are being recycled. Recycled expanded polystyrene has domestic markets,” Duggan said in a May interview.Councilman Chris Ward, the proposal’s author, and Councilwomen Barbara Bry and Myrtle Cole voted in favor of the proposal. Councilmen Mark Kersey and Chris Cate voted no.The vote sends the proposed ordinance to the full council. July 11, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom,
