(Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)Though he has yet to be formally named the starter by Ryan Day, Justin Fields is widely expected to play most of the season at quarterback for Ohio State. One ESPN analyst had a comment today on Fields that should be especially exciting for Buckeyes fans.Taking to Twitter on Sunday, ESPN analyst Ryan Clark recalled seeing Fields and Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence at The Opening several years ago. He said that he felt Fields was the best he’d ever seen for a player his age.When I saw Justin Fields and Trevor Lawrence at @TheOpening 3 summers ago I knew they’d both be stars. Honestly, Fields was the best I’d ever seen at that age. So, to watch where his journey has gone these last 2 years is just crazy to me.Clark is no Ohio State homer, so you don’t exactly need to take his statement with a grain of salt. Considering how good Trevor Lawrence was as a freshman, even being in the same paragraph as him has got to be pretty reassuring.Fields transferred to Ohio State in the offseason after riding the bench for Georgia as a freshman.When I saw Justin Fields and Trevor Lawrence at @TheOpening 3 summers ago I knew they’d both be stars.

He was the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and the No. 8 prospect on the site’s all-time rankings.But despite his big move to Columbus, he has huge shoes to fill. If named the starter, he’ll be taking over for Dwayne Haskins following a record-breaking year at quarterback. His strong season culminated in a historic blowout win over Michigan, a Big Ten title, and a Rose Bowl win.Suffice it to say, being about as good as or better than Trevor Lawrence may be Fields’ best chance of leading the Buckeyes closer to a national title.last_img read more

Stealing food from hungry Yemenis must stop immediately says UN agency

discovered that unauthorized people were given food. found that beneficiary selections were being manipulated by local officials identified that food was being sold in Sa’ana markets.,The de facto authorities in Houthi-controlled abuse-prone areas have been resisting a WFP-supported overhaul of the relief system there, including more monitoring and revamping the beneficiary registration and selection processes.Meanwhile, the WFP chief said: “We’re continuing our investigations and addressing those shortcomings which have given rise to this misuse of aid.”The Yemen war intensified in early 2015 when a Saudi-led coalition joined the Government fight against Houthi rebels, instituting an aerial bombing campaign.The warring sides have recently begun peace talks that have eased the challenges of getting food through the gateway port city of Hudaydah. However, the problem remains with what happens to the aid once it makes landfall.As millions of people depend on humanitarian food assistance for their survival, it is vital that it reaches those who most need it. “This conduct amounts to the stealing of food from the mouths of hungry people,” WFP Executive Director David Beasley said on Monday.Prompted by an increasing number of reports that humanitarian food was on sale in the capital, WFP conducted a survey to discover the misappropriation of those supplies.It unearthed fraud by at least one local partner organization affiliated with the de facto Ministry of Education in Sana’a handling and distribution of WFP food assistance.“At a time when children are dying in Yemen because they haven’t enough food to eat, that is an outrage,” stressed Mr. Beasley. “This criminal behaviour must stop immediately.”,The UN food agency’s assistance has been key in preventing famine, but as the food security situation deteriorates further aid is being dramatically ramped up to reach as many as 12 million severely hungry people in the war-torn country.“I’m asking the Houthi authorities in Sana’a to take immediate action to end the diversion of food assistance and ensure that it reaches those people who rely on it to stay alive,” Mr. Beasley said.“Unless this happens, we’ll have no option but to cease working with those who’ve been conspiring to deprive large numbers of vulnerable people of the food on which they depend,” he added.,During their checks, WFP monitors:amassed photographic and other evidence of trucks illicitly removing food from designated distribution centres. exposed falsified food distribution records. read more
