For the first time since his fallout with the Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre is taking responsibility for his role in the way things ended.
“I was at fault,” Favre said in a Buffalo radio interview on WGR 550. “I feel like both sides had a part in it. If you could go back, would I or them have done things differently? I’m sure both sides would. But you can’t.”
Favre had previously not shown much contrition since being traded by Green Bay to the New York Jets in 2008. That certainly wasn’t a typical player-trade situation, though. Favre had retired following the 2007 season, prompting the Packers to give an unproven Aaron Rodgers a shot as the team’s starter after three years on the bench. When Favre changed his mind and wanted to return as the starter, general manager Ted Thompson wouldn’t budge.
As the relationship got messy between Favre and the franchise that he led for 16 seasons, Green Bay eventually shipped Favre to the Jets. After one year in New York, Favre played his final two NFL seasons with the team he wanted Thompson to trade him to in the first place: the Minnesota Vikings.
“The things that transpired that led to us breaking up, if you will, to me, are over and done with,” Favre said on WGR 550.
Now that Favre is 43 years old and retired for good, Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy has been working towards repairing the team’s relationship with the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player.
Murphy told FOXSportsWisconsin.com in May that he wants Favre “back in the family” and to retire the No. 4 jersey at Lambeau Field.
“I don’t know of any player who would not want that to happen,” Favre told WGR 550. “I’m honored just by the thought. Obviously there was, if you want to call it bad blood or whatever, I just think that people started picking sides. And really, I’m over that and have been over it.
“Mark Murphy and I have talked on numerous occasions. I never expected them to do anything. I’m not one to sit here and say, ‘I think they need to do this and do that.’ They have a very good ball team and that’s their primary focus, and it should have always been, which it has.
“As time goes, it heals a lot of things. I know for me, as I’ve gotten further and further removed from the game, I think of statistics and things of that nature, which I don’t know any player where that didn’t matter some. But it matters a whole lot less now.”
In an interview with Jim Rome in May, Rodgers stated that he wants the Packers to retire Favre’s jersey before 2016. That’s the year when Favre is likely to become a first-ballot Hall of Fame selection.
“When will that happen? I don’t think either side is trying to push the issue,” Favre said on WGR 550. “Mark (Murphy) really came in the last few weeks of my career in Green Bay; he kind of came into a hornet’s nest, if you will. He’s been extremely great in trying to make this work. In our discussions, it will happen. I think both sides are genuine. I know they are. And that’s the way it has to come across because that’s the way it should be.
“We don’t want to go out there waving to the crowd with our backs to each other. And I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
Murphy credited Rodgers with providing a “great first step” in getting Favre back into the fold with the Packers. That was at the NFL Honors show in February when Rodgers and Favre surprisingly presented together on stage, shaking hands and laughing.
“Aaron has said some very nice things,” Favre told WGR 550. “He and I have a good relationship. I had a chance to present an award with him at the Super Bowl and that was for real. It wasn’t for show. And so I think everything will be fine.”
This has been a lot of progress in a short amount of time for Favre and the Packers. A year ago, all of this seemed nearly impossible. The “bad blood,” as Favre called it, just seemed like too much to overcome any time soon. But with Murphy, Rodgers and now Favre all moving in the same direction, it seems that No. 4 could soon be commemorated at Lambeau Field.
“I think things will be fine in due time,” Favre said on WGR 550.

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: 'I don't want to live in a society that does these sort of things' – video

Sunday 9 June 2013             16.17 EDT

The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.

The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said.

Snowden will go down in history as one of America’s most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world’s most secretive organisations – the NSA.

In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: “I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions,” but “I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant.”

Despite his determination to be publicly unveiled, he repeatedly insisted that he wants to avoid the media spotlight. “I don’t want public attention because I don’t want the story to be about me. I want it to be about what the US government is doing.”

He does not fear the consequences of going public, he said, only that doing so will distract attention from the issues raised by his disclosures. “I know the media likes to personalise political debates, and I know the government will demonise me.”

Despite these fears, he remained hopeful his outing will not divert attention from the substance of his disclosures. “I really want the focus to be on these documents and the debate which I hope this will trigger among citizens around the globe about what kind of world we want to live in.” He added: “My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.”

He has had “a very comfortable life” that included a salary of roughly $200,000, a girlfriend with whom he shared a home in Hawaii, a stable career, and a family he loves. “I’m willing to sacrifice all of that because I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.”

‘I am not afraid, because this is the choice I’ve made’

Three weeks ago, Snowden made final preparations that resulted in last week’s series of blockbuster news stories. At the NSA office in Hawaii where he was working, he copied the last set of documents he intended to disclose.

He then advised his NSA supervisor that he needed to be away from work for “a couple of weeks” in order to receive treatment for epilepsy, a condition he learned he suffers from after a series of seizures last year.

As he packed his bags, he told his girlfriend that he had to be away for a few weeks, though he said he was vague about the reason. “That is not an uncommon occurrence for someone who has spent the last decade working in the intelligence world.”

On May 20, he boarded a flight to Hong Kong, where he has remained ever since. He chose the city because “they have a spirited commitment to free speech and the right of political dissent”, and because he believed that it was one of the few places in the world that both could and would resist the dictates of the US government.

In the three weeks since he arrived, he has been ensconced in a hotel room. “I’ve left the room maybe a total of three times during my entire stay,” he said. It is a plush hotel and, what with eating meals in his room too, he has run up big bills.

He is deeply worried about being spied on. He lines the door of his hotel room with pillows to prevent eavesdropping. He puts a large red hood over his head and laptop when entering his passwords to prevent any hidden cameras from detecting them.

Though that may sound like paranoia to some, Snowden has good reason for such fears. He worked in the US intelligence world for almost a decade. He knows that the biggest and most secretive surveillance organisation in America, the NSA, along with the most powerful government on the planet, is looking for him.

Since the disclosures began to emerge, he has watched television and monitored the internet, hearing all the threats and vows of prosecution emanating from Washington.

And he knows only too well the sophisticated technology available to them and how easy it will be for them to find him. The NSA police and other law enforcement officers have twice visited his home in Hawaii and already contacted his girlfriend, though he believes that may have been prompted by his absence from work, and not because of suspicions of any connection to the leaks.

“All my options are bad,” he said. The US could begin extradition proceedings against him, a potentially problematic, lengthy and unpredictable course for Washington. Or the Chinese government might whisk him away for questioning, viewing him as a useful source of information. Or he might end up being grabbed and bundled into a plane bound for US territory.

“Yes, I could be rendered by the CIA. I could have people come after me. Or any of the third-party partners. They work closely with a number of other nations. Or they could pay off the Triads. Any of their agents or assets,” he said.

“We have got a CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong – and I am sure they are going to be busy for the next week. And that is a concern I will live with for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be.”

Having watched the Obama administration prosecute whistleblowers at a historically unprecedented rate, he fully expects the US government to attempt to use all its weight to punish him. “I am not afraid,” he said calmly, “because this is the choice I’ve made.”

He predicts the government will launch an investigation and “say I have broken the Espionage Act and helped our enemies, but that can be used against anyone who points out how massive and invasive the system has become”.

The only time he became emotional during the many hours of interviews was when he pondered the impact his choices would have on his family, many of whom work for the US government. “The only thing I fear is the harmful effects on my family, who I won’t be able to help any more. That’s what keeps me up at night,” he said, his eyes welling up with tears.

‘You can’t wait around for someone else to act’

Snowden did not always believe the US government posed a threat to his political values. He was brought up originally in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. His family moved later to Maryland, near the NSA headquarters in Fort Meade.

By his own admission, he was not a stellar student. In order to get the credits necessary to obtain a high school diploma, he attended a community college in Maryland, studying computing, but never completed the coursework. (He later obtained his GED.)

In 2003, he enlisted in the US army and began a training program to join the Special Forces. Invoking the same principles that he now cites to justify his leaks, he said: “I wanted to fight in the Iraq war because I felt like I had an obligation as a human being to help free people from oppression”.

He recounted how his beliefs about the war’s purpose were quickly dispelled. “Most of the people training us seemed pumped up about killing Arabs, not helping anyone,” he said. After he broke both his legs in a training accident, he was discharged.

After that, he got his first job in an NSA facility, working as a security guard for one of the agency’s covert facilities at the University of Maryland. From there, he went to the CIA, where he worked on IT security. His understanding of the internet and his talent for computer programming enabled him to rise fairly quickly for someone who lacked even a high school diploma.

By 2007, the CIA stationed him with diplomatic cover in Geneva, Switzerland. His responsibility for maintaining computer network security meant he had clearance to access a wide array of classified documents.

That access, along with the almost three years he spent around CIA officers, led him to begin seriously questioning the rightness of what he saw.

He described as formative an incident in which he claimed CIA operatives were attempting to recruit a Swiss banker to obtain secret banking information. Snowden said they achieved this by purposely getting the banker drunk and encouraging him to drive home in his car. When the banker was arrested for drunk driving, the undercover agent seeking to befriend him offered to help, and a bond was formed that led to successful recruitment.

“Much of what I saw in Geneva really disillusioned me about how my government functions and what its impact is in the world,” he says. “I realised that I was part of something that was doing far more harm than good.”

He said it was during his CIA stint in Geneva that he thought for the first time about exposing government secrets. But, at the time, he chose not to for two reasons.

First, he said: “Most of the secrets the CIA has are about people, not machines and systems, so I didn’t feel comfortable with disclosures that I thought could endanger anyone”. Secondly, the election of Barack Obama in 2008 gave him hope that there would be real reforms, rendering disclosures unnecessary.

He left the CIA in 2009 in order to take his first job working for a private contractor that assigned him to a functioning NSA facility, stationed on a military base in Japan. It was then, he said, that he “watched as Obama advanced the very policies that I thought would be reined in”, and as a result, “I got hardened.”

The primary lesson from this experience was that “you can’t wait around for someone else to act. I had been looking for leaders, but I realised that leadership is about being the first to act.”

Over the next three years, he learned just how all-consuming the NSA’s surveillance activities were, claiming “they are intent on making every conversation and every form of behaviour in the world known to them”.

He described how he once viewed the internet as “the most important invention in all of human history”. As an adolescent, he spent days at a time “speaking to people with all sorts of views that I would never have encountered on my own”.

But he believed that the value of the internet, along with basic privacy, is being rapidly destroyed by ubiquitous surveillance. “I don’t see myself as a hero,” he said, “because what I’m doing is self-interested: I don’t want to live in a world where there’s no privacy and therefore no room for intellectual exploration and creativity.”

Once he reached the conclusion that the NSA’s surveillance net would soon be irrevocable, he said it was just a matter of time before he chose to act. “What they’re doing” poses “an existential threat to democracy”, he said.

A matter of principle

As strong as those beliefs are, there still remains the question: why did he do it? Giving up his freedom and a privileged lifestyle? “There are more important things than money. If I were motivated by money, I could have sold these documents to any number of countries and gotten very rich.”

For him, it is a matter of principle. “The government has granted itself power it is not entitled to. There is no public oversight. The result is people like myself have the latitude to go further than they are allowed to,” he said.

His allegiance to internet freedom is reflected in the stickers on his laptop: “I support Online Rights: Electronic Frontier Foundation,” reads one. Another hails the online organisation offering anonymity, the Tor Project.

Asked by reporters to establish his authenticity to ensure he is not some fantasist, he laid bare, without hesitation, his personal details, from his social security number to his CIA ID and his expired diplomatic passport. There is no shiftiness. Ask him about anything in his personal life and he will answer.

He is quiet, smart, easy-going and self-effacing. A master on computers, he seemed happiest when talking about the technical side of surveillance, at a level of detail comprehensible probably only to fellow communication specialists. But he showed intense passion when talking about the value of privacy and how he felt it was being steadily eroded by the behaviour of the intelligence services.

His manner was calm and relaxed but he has been understandably twitchy since he went into hiding, waiting for the knock on the hotel door. A fire alarm goes off. “That has not happened before,” he said, betraying anxiety wondering if was real, a test or a CIA ploy to get him out onto the street.

Strewn about the side of his bed are his suitcase, a plate with the remains of room-service breakfast, and a copy of Angler, the biography of former vice-president Dick Cheney.

Ever since last week’s news stories began to appear in the Guardian, Snowden has vigilantly watched TV and read the internet to see the effects of his choices. He seemed satisfied that the debate he longed to provoke was finally taking place.

He lay, propped up against pillows, watching CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ask a discussion panel about government intrusion if they had any idea who the leaker was. From 8,000 miles away, the leaker looked on impassively, not even indulging in a wry smile.

Snowden said that he admires both Ellsberg and Manning, but argues that there is one important distinction between himself and the army private, whose trial coincidentally began the week Snowden’s leaks began to make news.

“I carefully evaluated every single document I disclosed to ensure that each was legitimately in the public interest,” he said. “There are all sorts of documents that would have made a big impact that I didn’t turn over, because harming people isn’t my goal. Transparency is.”

He purposely chose, he said, to give the documents to journalists whose judgment he trusted about what should be public and what should remain concealed.

As for his future, he is vague. He hoped the publicity the leaks have generated will offer him some protection, making it “harder for them to get dirty”.

He views his best hope as the possibility of asylum, with Iceland – with its reputation of a champion of internet freedom – at the top of his list. He knows that may prove a wish unfulfilled.

But after the intense political controversy he has already created with just the first week’s haul of stories, “I feel satisfied that this was all worth it. I have no regrets.”

It’s a fridge big enough for a family of four.

New York’s Office of General Services has turned to eBay in an attempt to sell off a huge, steel morgue refrigerator now located at a Manhattan psychiatric hospital.

Bidding on Saturday morning was up to $355 US for the four-drawer unit, but that price doesn’t include delivery. Buyers have to be willing to remove the fridge themselves from the Manhattan Psychiatric Center.

Office of General Services spokeswoman Heather Groll tells the New York Post that the ad is no hoax.

She says the agency does get unusual surplus items to sell from time to time, including barber chairs from prisons and police cars, but she doesn’t recall a previous sale of a morgue cooler.

The auction runs through June 6.

St-Pierre’s autobiography, “The Way of the Fight,” is now available in his native Canada and is scheduled for an April 23 release in the U.S.

Additionally, EW.com recently confirmed previous reports that St-Pierre has been cast as villain Batroc the Leaper in the upcoming film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

In St-Pierre’s autobiography, the UFC champ promises to share “the lessons he learned on his way to the top,” including “how he overcame bullying and injury to become an internationally celebrated athlete and champion.” St-Pierre began writing the book suring his extended time off to recover from ACL surgery.

Canadian outlets are already carrying the title. It can be pre-ordered ahead of its U.S. release at numerous online retailers, including Amazon.com, which is offering the book for $18.99.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which is based on a Marvel Comic and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, hits theaters in April 2014. Production began Monday, though it’s not expected to keep St-Pierre on the sidelines for an extended time.

St-Pierre’s character in “Captain America,” Batroc The Leaper, first appeared in comic books in 1966. The mercenary is a master of savate, a French form of kickboxing.

St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) is next scheduled to fight top contender Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC), who earned his shot with a recent decision win over onetime title challenger Carlos Condit. However, a date hasn’t been set for their title fight.

Hi-res-5623188_display_image

January 24, 2013            7:15am

Defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson was one of the most-hyped players to come through the Missouri Tigers program in the last few years. He was recruited by the Tigers of his home state, but started his collegiate career at College of the Sequoias, a junior college in Visalia, California. He made his return to his home state to make his debut with Mizzou in 2011, when he racked up 37 tackles, eight tackles for loss and two sacks in only eight games, two of which he started.

He moved into a starting position in 2012 and finished the season with 75 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, three forced fumbles, three batted passes, a blocked kick and he topped it all off with a 60-yard fumble return. After his impressive season, he was named to the 2012 All SEC First Team, becoming Missouri’s first player to win the honor.

Many mock drafts have Richardson being selected in the first round, as he could add a significant burst to a team looking to boost the production of their defensive line. The 6’4, 295-pound defensive tackle not only shows an ability to stop the run, but to rush the passer as well and has found success playing against some of college football’s best offensive lines in the SEC.

He is No. 8 on SB Nation’s big board and according to his SB Nation scouting report, he has the potential to be a top-10 pick.

Richardson has an ideal skill set to make a quick impact in the NFL. He’s going to blow people away at February’s combine with his speed and agility at 300 pounds. Richardson plays defensive tackle with a relentless attitude and a mean streak. He should find a home in the first round with his draft ceiling being the first ten picks.

Pros:

  • Richardson has the size to be a dominant defensive tackle in the NFL
  • His size comes along with incredible speed and quickness considering the weight he’s moving
  • He’s athletic enough that Missouri coaches asked him to drop back in pass coverage occasionally
  • He’s instinctive enough to accurately sniff out screens and draws
  • Explodes into tackles
  • Plays best against some of the toughest competition

Cons:

  • Only had one dominant season at FBS level
  • Sometimes stands up and loses leverage against blockers
  • Struggled academically throughout his college career
  • Underwent shoulder surgery after the 2011 season
  • Seems to run his mouth a bit too much in interviews

Richardson would likely fit best in a 4-3 defensive scheme where he could do the most damage, especially when it comes to providing pressure on the quarterback from the middle of the line. Some teams that may be interested in the Missouri defensive tackle are the Titans or Seahawks, who are likely looking for depth on the line.

From DraftBreakdown.com:

Quotables

– From ESPN’s Todd McShay:

– Richardson enjoys talking to the media, and had some interesting comments after Missouri’s season-opening win, before his team’s game against Georgia:

“If we execute,” he added, “nobody in this league can touch us. Period.”

On Georgia football: its “like watching Big Ten football. It’s old man football.”

Richardson was banned from talking to the press for a month by coaches after the incident.

Sheldon Richardson

19 (S is the 19th letter of the alphabet) + 8 (h is the 8th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 32

So the number 32 rules his first twenty-seven years of life.

¡Uno!

September 13, 2012

Just when you thought Green Day didn’t make albums like this anymore – 12 blasts of hook-savvy mosh-pit pop, cut hot and simple with no operatic agenda – singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool do three at once and issue them in rapid-fire installments. It’s lunacy, of course, in what now passes for the music business.

In fact, Green Day’s triple play with longtime co-producer Rob Cavallo is the way things used to be. In 1964 alone, the Beatles put out two albums, three singles and two EPs in Britain; the next year, the Rolling Stones whipped out five singles and three LPs in the U.S. ¡Uno! is Green Day’s first studio album in three years, but they deliver it like late-breaking news, with mid-Sixties-guitar clamor, ’77 velocity and no breathing room. Every track is written like a single – the glam-Jam jolt of “Nuclear Family,” the Cheap Trick-style zoom and vocal sunshine of “Fell for You” – then thrown at you like a grenade. From what I’ve heard so far of ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!, the same goes for them too.

After the Quadrophenialike weight and worry of 2004’s American Idiot and 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown¡Uno! feels like plain relief. There are strong whiffs of Green Day’s biggest seller, 1994’s Dookie, in the honed buzz of Armstrong’s and Jason White’s guitars, Dirnt and Cool’s airtight gallop, and Armstrong’s lyric emphasis on girl troubles and starting the party that never stops. There is also a hipper, richer grip in the details. The martial clip of “Carpe Diem” is an exuberant throwback to the Mod-era Who. “Troublemaker” jumps like a dirty-glitter union of U2‘s “Vertigo” and the Knack’s “My Sharona,” and has a liquid-fuzz guitar break that starts like the drone in David Bowie‘s “Heroes” and ends with a vicious tremolo-bar spasm, as if Jeff Beck has taken over straight from the Yardbirds.

“Stay the Night” and “Let Yourself Go” are the kind of pop-smart here’s-my-fucking-problem miniatures Armstrong was writing like second nature when he, Dirnt and Cool were too young to drink (legally) where they gigged. But Armstrong is 40 now, married and a dad, and a lot of this ruckus sounds designed to drown out the time bombs ticking in his head and the maddening static outside. In “Kill the DJ,” Armstrong turns the avenging spirit of the Smiths‘ “Panic” (“Hang the DJ”) on the noxious vapors of rabid talk radio, with more Taxi Driver in his threats and a catchy echo of the Clash‘s “The Magnificent Seven” in the charge. Despite the jolt of Slade in the chorus, “Loss of Control” isn’t about sucking up every drop at the bar. It’s a lonesome fury, spit out by a guy stranded in righteousness and stung by the betrayal. “Hey, isn’t that old what’s-his-face/That I see walking down the street,” Armstrong sneers. “We never had anything in common/And I never liked you anyway.”

“Where the hell is the old gang at?” Armstrong sings to the void in “Rusty James.” Unlike most adult punks, though, he still has his original sidekicks, and their band in a new peak form. The action continues with ¡Dos! in November. Seven weeks with ¡Uno! will leave you in shape, and hungry, by then.

from:  http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/uno-20120913#ixzz26qPVKM7a

—————————————————————————————-

Billie Joe Armstrong was born on February 17th, 1972 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billie_Joe_Armstrong

February 17th, 1972

2 + 17 = 19 = his core number = Front and center.  His time to shine.  Proud of his hard earned success.

The Sun Tarot card

—————————————————————————————-

February 17th, 1972

February 17th

2 + 17 +2+0+1+2 = 24 = his personal year (from February 17th, 2012 to February 16th, 2013) = Dominating.  In charge.  Cleaning up his act.  Need for clean living.

The Queen of Wands Tarot card

24 year + 10 (October) = 34 = his personal month (from October 17th, 2012 to November 16th, 2012) = Generating a buzz.  Ratings spike.  Things happen really quickly.  Getting people all fired up.

—————————————————————————————-

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name.

February 17th, 1972             Billie Joe Armstrong

17 (born on the 17th of the month) + 12 (l is the 12th letter of the alphabet) + 9 ( i is the 9th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 43

So the numbers 17 (born on the 17th of the month), 26 (the sum of the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name), and 43 (17 +26=43) rule his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

17 = Inspired.  Inspirational.  Superstar.  Health issues.  Need to stay positive.

26 = Popular.  Fans.  Photogenic.  In the news.  Making headlines.

43 = Congratulations.  Celebrating.  Bands.  Singing and dancing.  Having fun.  Enjoying himself.

—————————————————————————————-

1      2      3       4       5       6      7      8      9
A      B     C       D       E       F      G      H      I
J      K      L      M      N       O      P      Q      R
S      T      U      V      W      X      Y      Z

B = 2              K = 2             T = 2

C = 3              L = 3             U = 3

G = 7              P = 7             Y = 7
