Beast Mode is back: Lynch signs with Seattle Seahawks

first_imgWhen Pops met Martin’s son Santino Thailand reports case of coronavirus from China Lava gushes out of Taal Volcano as villagers flee Turbin played for Seattle from 2012-14 and was Lynch’s backup.“Happy to be back home,” Turbin wrote on Instagram.Lynch visited Seattle’s facility earlier this month but the team said it was simply to see some friends. The team had to report the visit to the league because Lynch has not officially filed retirement papers and could be signed by any team.Carroll said general manager John Schneider had been in contact with Lynch’s representatives on the off-chance there was a need down the road.“John is always on the options and in astute fashion he’s been connected with this one just in case for a long enough time that we’ve had some runway for it. He’s had plenty of time to be working and get ready in case something came up and I’m anxious to see him when we get him here,” Carroll said. “There is a lot of history here that is great history and there was nobody that ever amplified the kind of mentality and toughness we like to play with, so if we get a chance to get the beast back on the field we’ll see how that works out.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Lynch will always be remembered for his touchdown run in the 2010 playoffs against New Orleans that helped establish the “Beast Mode” persona. It was the top of the long list of highlights with the Seahawks.“My relationship with him, it was really fun for me for the most part,” Carroll said. “There were some hard times with it because he challenged the system so much. He challenged so many different aspects — the things with the media and all those kinds of things — he was hard on the regular routine of this job in some regards, but he always played and he’d always bring it and I loved the spirit that he’d bring and the toughness he brought. He’s a very charismatic person and player and he affected a lot of people and he affected this program in a big way.”Ultimately, Seattle needs production and that will be the big question with a 33-year-old running back.Lynch averaged 4.2 yards per carry and 62.7 yards per game before getting injured last season. The Seahawks would take that kind of production to help make up for the loss of Carson, who finished the year with a career-high 1,230 yards and 4.4 yards per attempt.Lynch may not be the only reunion for Seattle. Former running back Robert Turbin posted a picture from the Seahawks locker room on social media late Monday. There was no confirmation from the team that Turbin has signed, but he had been in for a workout with the team last week.ADVERTISEMENT No shortage of struggle for Olympics chasing Tsukii LATEST STORIES Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:15Trump signs Anti-Semitism order at Hanukkah event00:50Trending Articles01:05Poor visibility, nakaapekto sa maraming lugar sa Batangas03:028,000 pulis sa Region 4-A, tuloy ang trabaho03:57Phivolcs, nahihirapan sa komunikasyon sa Taal01:04Sold-out: Stores run out of face masks after Taal spews ash01:45Iran police shoot at those protesting plane shootdown01:54MMDA deploys rescue team to Batangas following Taal eruption ‘People evacuated on their own’center_img NFA assures ample rice supply in ashfall, eruption-affected areas MOST READ No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist Seattle is in desperate need of running backs after Chris Carson (hip) and C.J.

Sterling Products to open 2 more Igloo outlets in 2017

first_imgDespite facing challenges in 2016, Sterling Products Limited (SPL) is set to open two additional Igloo Ice Cream outlets this year, as the company remains optimistic that economic conditions in Guyana will improve.One of the two outlets will be located on the East Coast of Demerara while the other will be opened on the Corentyne Coast, East Berbice.The Igloo Ice Cream Parlour and Fun Park that opened in December at Providence, East Bank DemeraraAccording to Chief Executive Officer Ramsay Ali, it is expected that a total of 20 new jobs will be created with the opening of them new outlets.In December, SPL opened its new Igloo Ice Cream Parlour and Play Park at Providence, East Bank Demerara, which has been well received by the public. “We’re very proud of the Igloo Ice Cream Parlour we’ve built. Since opening in December to now, sales have actually doubled, if you look at year-on-year,” Ali said.The company invested significant sums in its infrastructure in 2016, as well as over the last 10 years, and the development of new products, such as the zero-cholesterol Abbey Butter Spread. Work is also ongoing on the development of new products. “We’ve up our ante in the export markets as it relates to all of our products and we continue to invest heavily in our quality,” the CEO stated.SPL held its Annual General Meeting on April 21 at the Guyana Marriott Hotel in Georgetown, where shareholders were apprised of the company’s performance in 2016 and plans for the New Year.In his report, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Dr Leslie Chin, in highlighting some of the challenges the company faced in 2016, said, “Upon careful analysis of the company’s performance, we fully recognise that year 2016 was a challenging year for manufacturers as well as the wider business community. We have seen reduction of 14 per cent of manufacturing within the economy as at half year 2016; the official year end 2016 economic performance is expected in a downward trend. ”Dr Chin said the company recorded third party revenue of G$3.076 billion in 2016, a decrease of G$3.0 million compared to 2015 revenues. Nevertheless, “The economic activity as it relates to our business, and in general, resulted in stable year on year results,” he said.The company is proud of its prudent financial management which has seen it performed fairly well, despite a slowdown in the economy. Finance Controller/Company Secretary, Deodat Indar, said both profits and revenue were relatively stable over 2015 figures. One of the things SPL is paying close attention to, in terms of the expense side of the business, he said, is continuing to adopt a hands-on management approach. “If the country is in a slowdown, you have to manage as such too. There is also the view that there are opportunities coming up in this country everywhere and the company has to see where it is strategically fit for us to be in.”Looking forward, SPL’s CEO said optimism is high that the economy will improve. “The economy is going to get better. Oil and gas is looming… those revenues will come. We are eagerly looking to see how it will be dispensed.”last_img read more
