Us weekly only confirmed Schinelli’s identity later this month, as the couple continued to be seen collectively in Nashville.

An excessive surfing advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service warning of huge waves likely to display along the southern California coast from Tuesday, January 11.

The advisory warns of waves between 5 and 8 feet on the coasts of Los Angeles and Orange counties, increasing the risk of reverse currents and various coastal hazards. The advisory goes into effect at 3 p.m. Tuesday and 9 p.m. Wednesday, though surf will be solid ahead of the weekend nonetheless.

With global warming on Tuesday – expected to be around 70 levels on the coast and close to 80 inland – beachgoers should use an additional warning on the coast if they make their way to the edge of the sea. sea ​​to relax.

“My advice to the average swimmer would be to stay out of the waves,” NWS meteorologist Philip Gonsalvef said, regardless of the good weather forecast. “If you’re just going to the beach to enjoy the good weather, you’ll want to stay away from the waves.

The climate service warns of a high risk of drowning in large waves, in addition to return currents that can pull swimmers out to sea. Large breaking waves can cause damage, taking individuals offshore and sea. rocks and capsize small boats.

In addition to the excessive surf warning, the NWS has also issued a small craft warning of the hazards at sea to boaters.

High tides occur in the morning hours, but generally should not be excessive, so while flooding in low areas is possible, it is unlikely, Gonsalvef said.

“Some of these areas could experience minor flooding, but it will be a combination of tide and waves,” he said. “The risk of flooding is still quite low.”

Santa Ana winds will persist on Tuesday, but look set to weaken in Orange County on Wednesday, which may bring temperatures down. It will likely be even cooler on Thursday and throughout the weekend.

Winds are likely to be strongest in the Los Angeles County mountain ranges, with a wind advisory in place until Tuesday. Winds from the northeast to the east are forecast to reach 20 mph to 35 mph with gusts of 40 mph to 50 mph.

DePaul Prep knows how to set up a shootout. Everything went about on time, there was wifi and lists you don’t have to beg for and a nice table to sit on. I could spend the whole season sitting on the balcony watching basketball. Well done Pat Mahoney and Tom Kleinschmidt.

The basketball was pretty good. Highlights below and there’s a full story on St. Ignatius beating Bolingbrook. The Wolfpack looked pretty good playing fast at the start of this one. Bolingbrook is speeding everyone up and St. Ignace handled it really well.

After driving home through the ice, I watched Kenwood take on Christian Brothers, a team from St. Louis, at the Highland Shootout. The Broncos took a big lead early behind some big plays from guard Darrin Ames, who is back from injury.

Christian Brothers has a really intriguing sophomore, 7-2 John Bol. Kenwood dominated most of the first half and led in the fourth quarter, but ended up losing 73-69. It’s a win the Broncos should have been able to finish. The techniques and some really reckless decisions cost them a victory.

Ames finished with 21 points and Trey Pettigrew scored 17. Bol had 14 for CBC and Robert Martin led them with 26.

Saturday’s best matches

Glenbard West 60, Benet 45: The Hilltoppers are going about business in the final game of the DePaul Prep shootout. Caden Pierce had 17 and Bobby Durkin added 15. Braden Huff had 11. Senior grand Kyle Thomas led the Redwings with 16 points.

DePaul Prep 45, Homewood-Flossmoor 35: Vikings fans are going to start bribing me to leave the gym before their team plays. HF always falls flat when I watch. The Rams were in control from start to finish in this one. Dylan Arnett was very aggressive and senior goaltender Julian Green had a great time for DePaul Prep.

Loyola 55, Saint-Patrick 53: I watched the fourth quarter of it. The Shamrocks led early but Loyola took the lead on a three from junior Alex Engro with 2:26 left. St. Patrick’s senior Brandon Adorno scored with nine seconds left, but runner-up Miles Boland was 3-4 from the free throw line in the final 18 seconds to seal the Ramblers victory.

Peoria Notre Dame 50, Sainte Rita 38: Did everyone expect too much from a busy sophomore team? May be. I received a few texts after this one. I guess I’m not as worried as everyone else. How beautiful Mustangs looked in late February and March was always going to be more important than now. They lost by 12 against a good team. Kaiden Space scored 14 and Illinois rookie Morez Johnson had 11.

York 65, Sandburg 44: The Dukes won on the road behind a big effort from Drew Kircher. The senior scored 31. James White led Sandburg with 17 points.

Morgan Park 56, St. Viator 47: The Mustangs have moved away from the spotlight since Nick Irvin left, but they’ve been a tough game for the opposition this season. Big man Lidell Miller had 20 points and 16 rebounds and star quarterback Aaron Warren added nine points. They improve to 5-5.

Hyde Park 84, Professional 59: Another great victory for the Thunderbirds. No disappointment after a quick turnaround with an early afternoon game after winning at Riverside-Brookfield last night. Malik Jenkins scored 15 points and Cam Williford added 14 points. Damarion Morris contributed 11 points and six assists. The Thunderbirds are 11-3 and have won seven straight games. LaShawn Pollard continued his senior season with 35 points and eight rebounds for the Cavaliers.

Saint-Louis Chaminade 103, Yorkville Christian 59: A tough one for the Mustangs at the Highland Shootout. Duke rookie Jaden Schutt led Yorkville with 22 points.

Lake Forest Academy 67, Proviso East 65: I never know what to do with LFA. They usually play a lot of local teams, but they’re not in the IHSA playoffs so it’s easy to overlook them. They now have two different teams appearing in the standings and I don’t know what it is. Either way, they took out the Pirates today. Simon Weisserman, a 6-7 junior, led the Caxys with 23 points and 15 rebounds.

Leon 71, De La Salle 55: The Meteors knocked out DePaul Prep last night but fell tonight against Leo. JaKeem Cole scored 29 points and Tyler Smith added 13 points, five assists and six rebounds.

Lindblom 49, Palatine 43: What a solid victory for the Eagles, beating a good Mid-Suburban League side. Senior Zachary Royser had 14 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks. Sophomore Je’Shawn Stevenson scored 17 and Reggie King senior had 9 points and 10 rebounds. Lindblom is 11-3.

Wheaton Warrenville South 40, Lake Park 28: Another high-quality victory for the Tigers. Tyler Fawcett scored 13 points and Braylen Meredith added nine points.

Young 75 years old, Totino Grace, MN 67: Darrin Ames isn’t the only talented goalie in the Public League to return today. Dalen Davis had a huge game in Minnesota with 31 points, seven assists and three steals.

The tennis powerhouse Spain has always seemed the favorite to move up to Group A in Sydney this week, even without the superstar, the powerhouse major winner Rafael Nadal.

Effectively with two former top 10 stalwarts like world No.19 Roberto Bautista Agut and No.20 Pablo Carreno Busta in their corner, and only one top 20 player in Norway and Chile – and Serbia without their own superstar, Novak Djokovic – this It was a deal done almost from day one. The two Spaniards in their 30s have won their three singles matches, and the team lost just one point in the nine games played to seal their place in the semi-finals, 8-1.

Perhaps more surprisingly, Poland became the other side to advance to the semi-finals on a busy Wednesday in humid Sydney. The team’s singles players were led by one of the most improved men on the tour in 2021, No.9 Hubert Hurkacz, but compatriot Kamil Majchrzak, ranked only 117, tied Hurkacz with a streak of three singles wins, with the two men dominating Argentina’s strength against No.13 Diego Schwartzman and No.44 Federico Delbonis.

Thus, like Spain, Poland is heading towards its semi-final at 8-1: the Poles have conceded only one doubles match.

However, things were going straight on Thursday, as the other two groups contested for a spot in the other semi-final.

For Group B, the scenario was simple: the winner won everything between Russia and Italy.

The Italians appeared to be the favorites of their group at the start of the tournament, fielding as they did No.7 Matteo Berrettini, No.10 Jannik Sinner, as well as singles substitute for No.27 Lorenzo Sonego and no. ° 37 Fabio Fognini. Combined with the expertise of Simone Bolelli in doubles, this helped sweep the three compatriot nations.

But it didn’t start well for Berrettini, who lost both singles and doubles matches in their opener against Australia. But a 3-0 run against France kept Italy in the race, although world number 2 Daniil Medvedev, with the exceptional support of number 167 Roman Safiullin, knocked out both of their ties and dominated the group before the last one. group game day.

So, could the defending champions, even without two of their best players – Andrey Rublev and Aslan Karatev, sidelined by Covid infections – be able to seal the semi-final?

Medvedev would team up again with Safiullin for Russia on Thursday, while Italy would also team up with Berrettini and Sinner. And once Sinner completed his winning streak against Safiullin, all eyes turned to Berrettini, who faced Medvedev for the first time since the 2021 ATP Cup final, where the Russian was the 6-4 winner, 6-2 to seal the trophy for Russia.

And once again, US Open champion Medvedev delivered a three-set thriller that lasted two hours 40 minutes, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-4, to bring the draw to a double confrontation.

Once there, the four key protagonists teamed up, and again it took Russia three sets to deny Italy, 5-7, 6-4, 10-5.

But that got Russia to the semi-finals, but who would they meet there? As this unfolded in the Ken Rosewall arena, GB faced off against the United States in the Qudos Bank arena, knowing they had to win to stay in the chase.

If Cam Norrie and Dan Evans got the upper hand over John Isner and Taylor Fritz – and it was the bottom-ranked Evans who won all three games rather than Norrie – then the Brits would have to wait until evening to see if Germany could beat Canada and propel GB to the semi-finals.

Because if the Canadians, in the form of their young hard-working stars Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov, beat Alexander Zverev’s Germany, it was the Canadians who made their way to the semi-finals.

And Evans, once again, gave GB a good start with an impressive 6-4, 7-6 (3) victory over Isner, the Briton, a foot shorter than his imposing American opponent, outclassing Isner in both. first and second serve, and with enough touch, variety and speed to bamboozle the American at key points.

However, for the third time, Norrie was unable to win her singles match, this time losing in three sets to Taylor Fritz. Thus, the doubles would be the key again for GB, and it was Evans who lent himself to play with Jamie Murray for almost two more hours; His reward, however, was to keep GB’s hopes, 6-7 (3), 7-5, 10-8.

Evans and his fellow Britons could do nothing more. Their hopes now depended on Germany’s victory over Canada in a late-night session, a session that began with another long battle between Shapovalov and Jan-Lennard Struff. It took over two and a half hours and three sets, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-3, for Canada to take the lead.

It was now up to Auger-Aliassime to beat Zverev, whether in singles or doubles. He had only beaten the No.3 World, Olympic and ATP Finals champion in five previous encounters just once, but this time he got off to a perfect start with a break in Game 1. He then sealed the set, 6-4, and although Zverev leveled things in the second, 4-6, the 21-year-old Canadian lived with the German’s powerful play at 3-3 in the third, before breaking in the seventh game.

From there, Auger-Aliassime played near flawless tennis, using power, depth and angles to outscore Zverev for the win, 6-3, after more than two and a half hours.

And so it is Canada that will face Russia on Saturday, and perhaps now with the advantage, as Auger-Aliassime and Shapovalov have taken on the challenges more and more as the week goes on and also proved to be a formidable one. double duet. And while Medvedev has seen lower-ranked compatriot Roman Safiullin play well above his No.167, the pressure will now surely start to kick in as Russia laments the absence of Rublev and Karatsev.

MADISON – As the reigning 2022 Miss Madison Teen USA, Rosalee Mahdi will represent Madison in the upcoming Miss Alabama Teen USA pageant and promote her belief in studying languages ​​for children.

The Gouge Performing Arts Center at Auburn University will serve as a place of historical reconstruction. After the preliminaries on January 14 at 7:30 p.m., the finals on January 15 will determine the winner.

“I’ve always admired girls who have entered contests, especially the Miss Universe system, and played with competition for a long time,” Rosalee said. “Last year, I decided to start my very first competition” in January 2021.

“I loved meeting all the girls and seeing how sweet everyone is. I didn’t make the top 16, but I was addicted to the culture, ”said Rosalee.

Rosalee has made long-standing friendships with some very accomplished women in her age group. Networking is one of his favorite aspects of competing.

To help Rosalee reach the Top 16, vote for her at https://www.missalabamausa.com/contestants-teen.

Rosalee will compete with 46 young women. The winner will compete for Miss Teen USA.

The Miss Alabama Teen USA contest has three sections for judging: Interview; Sports clothing / Swimwear; and evening dress. The top five will face questions on stage.

For the interviews, Rosalee anticipates questions about her personality, her platform and the reasons for aspiring to the title. Her platform, TALK or Teaching Accelerated Languages ​​to Kids, follows Rosalee’s passion for foreign languages.

She did not have the opportunity to study languages ​​properly until her first year, but she wants young people to learn early. “I think children should have access to foreign languages ​​from elementary school onwards, and my platform revolves around promoting this change,” Rosalee said.

In this effort, she reads foreign language books to students at Horizon Elementary School and volunteered for the Liberty Middle School language camp. “The kids loved hearing about foreign languages ​​and asked me about the languages ​​I studied,” Rosalee said. “I met with Rep. Terri Collins from Decatur about (her) biliteracy seal bill.”

“I was pleasantly surprised at how many people were eager to help a woman with a plan and a passion,” Rosalee said. At first, his journey to increasing language study “seemed daunting and impossible,” but many people listened to him and helped him.

If Rosalee wins Miss Alabama Teen USA, she will tour Alabama and promote TALK, especially to the state legislature. The winner will also attend scheduled appearances to represent Alabama and meet “queen sisters from other states.”

An elder at James Clemens High School, Rosalee is undecided about college, but the University of Alabama at Huntsville has offered a full tuition fee. For two years she has already studied Russian at the UAH. She will specialize in international relations or political science.

Rosalee sits on the Student Advisory Committee with Madison City Schools. She works part time at Lucky Finds.

Her parents are Alexander and Susan Mahdi.

Germany’s Alexander Zverev plays a forehand in his Group C match against American Taylor Fritz on matchday four of the 2022 ATP Cup at Ken Rosewall Arena on January 4, 2022 in Sydney.

Strong points

  • Zverev defeated Fritz 6-4, 6-4 in the second of the singles matches
  • In another singles match, Germany’s Struff held off 34 aces in a 7-6 (7), 4-6, 7-5 win over Isner
  • Earlier, Isner and Fritz combined for a 6-0, 6-3 victory over Krawietz and Puetz in doubles

Alexander Zverev brought the German ATP Cup campaign back to the track as the Olympic gold medalist beat Taylor Fritz in straight sets to seal his team’s victory over the United States.

Jan-Lennard Struff held off 34 aces in a 7-6 (7), 4-6, 7-5 win over John Isner to give Germany the lead and Zverev sealed it, on his fifth ball match, with a 6-4, 6-4 victory in the second of the singles matches.

Isner and Fritz combined for a 6-0, 6-3 victory over Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz in doubles. Both teams are now 1-1 in Group C. The United States started with a 3-0 victory over Canada and Germany had just lost 2-1 to Great Britain.

“A great effort from Jan to beat John in these conditions… we needed this win, we had to get on the board,” said Zverev, No. 3 in the table. “It’s the second game of the season. I’m still doing it. I’m still trying to adapt, but I’m happy with the way things are going.

Italy rebounded from their loss to Australia to beat France in Group B.

Finalist last year against Russia, Italy took the lead when Jannik Sinner beat Arthur Rinderknech 6-3, 7-6 (3) and secured their victory over France when Matteo Berrettini beat Ugo Humbert 6- 4, 7-6 (6).

Sinner and Berrettini completed the sweep with a three-set doubles victory. For Berrettini, it was a victory that boosted confidence following a loss to Australian Alex de Minaur. Humbert was emerging from an upheaval against US Open champion Daniil Medvedev.

“I had to play my best tennis in the important moments to win the game and I’m really happy with my performance,” Berrettini said in a television interview on the court.

Canada faced Great Britain later Tuesday in Group C and Russia faced Australia in Group B. The four group winners of the 16-team tournament advance to the semi-finals on Friday and Saturday, with the final being scheduled for Sunday.

But on Sunday night, Australian world No.34 Alex de Minaur defied the odds to defeat No.7 Berrettini in straight sets and tie the biggest win of his career.

From there, the Australian doubles team froze the Italians to seal an unlikely 2-1 tie victory at Ken Rosewall Arena.

“Alex played fantastic,” said Hewitt, who is Australia’s captain of the Sydney-based tag team tournament.

“He had a really big preseason. He came over there and held the game from the start.

“It’s a hell of a victory for him to start the season on the right track. That then gave us the opportunity for the boys to go over there and play doubles.

“I think the two (Australian doubles Luke Saville and John Peers) played a fantastic game.

“It’s good that we always have a chance to fight.”

De Minaur suffered his fair share of setbacks in 2021, including a coronavirus episode that excluded him from the Tokyo Olympics.

But the 22-year-old Sydney native said he put the tough year behind him and is ready to make a splash in 2022.

“I’ve been hitting the ball really well in practice the last few weeks, and it’s great to be able to go out there and perform,” he said.

“I feel in the best shape I have felt in my entire life, so I’m going to really cherish this, carry that on the pitch every time I go out and be ready to take on any challenges that are thrown at me.”

Hewitt said the Australian squad would enjoy the first of those challenges – meeting Russia on Tuesday night at Qudos Bank Arena.

He’s the brightest star in the ATP Cup, but Medvedev has already been brought back to earth once in this year’s tournament – Frenchman Ugo Humbert came from a set to knock out 2021 US Open champion in of the day session Sunday.

Medvedev recovered from the defeat by teaming up with compatriot Roman Safiullin to win the double and avoid what would have been a catastrophic result for the Russians.

“They did extremely well in their game, especially with Medvedev losing, which few would have predicted,” Hewitt said.

Hewitt said his troops would be delighted to be able to compete with the reigning ATP Cup champions.

“It will be over in the other arena (Qudos Bank Arena), which will be slightly different for the boys,” Hewitt said.

“We’re going to do our best and give ourselves a chance.

“We look forward to these tough chances and opportunities against the best players.”

And now, on Saturday, Orange County officials have reported another increase, estimating the sewage spill to reach around 8.5 million gallons.

There is no official timeline on how long it will take to clean up the sewage spill.

A sewage spill of this magnitude is dangerous and unacceptable and we need to understand what happened, ”said Los Angeles County supervisor Janice Hahn.

In a sprawling colony of mud brick huts in the west Afghanistan sheltering people displaced by drought and war, a woman fights to save her daughter.

Aziz Gul’s husband sold their 10-year-old child in marriage without telling his wife, taking a down payment to be able to support his family of five. Otherwise, he told her, they would all starve. He had to sacrifice one to save the others.

Much of the growing number of poor people in Afghanistan are making decisions so desperate that their nation is sinking into a vortex of poverty.

Afghanistan’s aid-dependent economy was already faltering when the Taliban seized power in mid-August amid a chaotic withdrawal of US and NATO troops. The international community has frozen Afghanistan’s assets abroad and halted its funding, refusing to work with a Taliban government given its reputation for brutality during its previous rule 20 years ago.

The consequences have been devastating for a country ravaged by war, drought and the coronavirus pandemic. State employees have not been paid for months. Malnutrition hits the most vulnerable and aid groups say more than half of the population faces severe food shortages.

“Day by day, the situation is deteriorating in this country, and in particular the children are suffering,” said Asuntha Charles, country director of aid organization World Vision in Afghanistan, which runs a health clinic for the displaced. near the western town of Herat. “Today it was heartbroken to see families willing to sell their children to feed other family members.”

The organization of weddings for very young girls is common in the region. The groom’s family pays money to close the deal, and the child usually stays with their parents until they are at least 15 years old. Yet, with many not even having the means to buy basic food, some say they would allow the bride and groom to take very young daughters or even try to sell their sons.

Gul, unusual in this deeply patriarchal, male-dominated society, resists. Married at 15, she says she would kill herself if her daughter, Qandi Gul, was taken away.

When her husband told her that he had sold Qandi, “my heart stopped beating. I wish I could have died then, but maybe God didn’t want me to die, ”said Gul, with Qandi by his side, staring shyly under his sky blue scarf. “Every time I remember that night … I die and come back to life.”

Her husband told her he sold one to save the others, saying they would all have died otherwise.

“Dying was much better than what you did,” she told him.

Gul rallied her brother and the village elders and, with their help, obtained a “divorce” for Qandi, on the condition that she repay the 100,000 afghanis (about $ 1,000) her husband received. It’s money she doesn’t have.

Her husband fled, perhaps fearing that Gul would report him to the authorities. The Taliban government recently banned forced marriages.

Gul says she doesn’t know how long she will be able to put off the family of the future groom, a man around 21.

“I am so desperate. If I can’t provide the money to pay these people and I can’t keep my daughter by my side, I said I would kill myself, ”she said. “But then I think of the other kids. What will happen to them? Who will feed them? Her eldest is 12 years old, her youngest – her sixth – barely two months old.

In another part of the camp, Hamid Abdullah, a father of four, also sold his young daughters to arranged marriages, desperately seeking money to care for his chronically ill wife pregnant with their fifth child.

He cannot repay the money he borrowed to fund his wife’s treatments, he said. So, three years ago, he received a down payment for his eldest daughter Hoshran, now aged 7, in an arranged marriage with a person now aged 18.

The family who bought Hoshran wait until she is older before they pay the full amount and take her. But Abdullah needs the money now, so he’s trying to organize a wedding for his second daughter, Nazia, 6, for around 20,000-30,000 Afghanis ($ 200-300).

“We have nothing to eat,” and he cannot afford his wife’s doctor, he said.

His wife, Bibi Jan, said they had no other choice but it was a difficult decision. “When we made the decision, it was like someone had taken part of my body.”

In neighboring Badghis province, another displaced family is considering selling their 8-year-old son, Salahuddin.

Her mother, Guldasta, said that after days without eating anything, she told her husband to take Salahuddin to the bazaar and sell him to bring food to others.

“I don’t want to sell my son, but I have to,” said the 35-year-old. “No mother can do this to her child, but when you have no other choice, you have to make a decision against your will.”

Salahuddin blinked and watched silently, his lip quivering slightly.

Her father, Shakir, who is blind in one eye and suffering from kidney problems, said the children had been crying from hunger for days. Twice he decided to take Salahuddin to the bazaar, and twice he hesitated. “But now I think I have no other choice.”

Buying from boys is believed to be less common than for girls, and when it does, it appears to be cases of families without sons buying infants. In her desperation, Guldasta thought that maybe such a family might want an 8-year-old.

Charles, World Vision’s country director for Afghanistan, said humanitarian aid funds were desperately needed.

“I’m happy to see the promises are made,” she said. But the promises “must not remain promises, they must be seen as a reality on the ground”.
