Peter Weber Is the Star of The Bachelor Season 24 – E! NEWS

September 17th, 2019

Prepare for a full season of jokes about planes and windmills. 

Peter Weber will be the next star of The Bachelor, as announced on tonight’s finale of Bachelor in Paradise. Peter came in third place during Hannah Brown‘s season of The Bachelorette, and he made quite the splash after Hannah revealed they had sex in a windmill four times during their fantasy suite date. 

Peter is a 27-year-old pilot who lives at home with his parents about five minutes from Bachelor mansion, as he and Chris Harrison discussed on stage at the BIP reunion. 

“It’s still hitting me right now, and I feel so grateful right now just to have this opportunity in front of me,” Weber shared onstage. “I feel, like, emotional, right now. This is crazy. This is life-changing. I have truly, you know, my entire life looked forward to finding, you know, my girl, and that person that I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with.”

When asked if he’s feeling nervous about filling the coveted role, Peter had this to say: “There’s gonna be ups and downs. I know that’s coming. And, you know, I’m not gonna be perfect… I’m gonna follow my heart. And as cliché as that sounds, I trust this, you know?” 

Earlier today, ABC revealed the ladies who were picked to compete for Peter’s love and attention. 

And if any of those lucky women are reading this right now, their potential husband has a few words of wisdom to impart. 

“Show me that vulnerable, raw side from the beginning,” Peter remarked. “If you’re feeling with me, if you’re starting to fall, tell me. If you’re pissed at me, I did something wrong, tell me. Don’t hold back. Wear that heart on your sleeve, and I promise you if you do that, I will give it right back 100 percent.”

This was Peter’s official bio when he was announced as a part of Hannah’s cast: 

In this pilot’s family, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Peter’s parents met while his dad was a pilot and his mom was a flight attendant. When Peter is not flying the friendly skies, he enjoys snowboarding, watching football and line dancing. Peter’s life motto is “you should live this life always expecting something great is about to happen to you.” Could meeting Hannah be that next great thing?

– Peter’s grandma’s name is Rose.
– He once took a girl on a sunset flight to Santa Barbara for dinner.
– Even though he is a man of the world, Peter still lives at home.

The Bachelor will begin filming soon, and will premiere in January 2020 on ABC.

Cavan Biggio makes history as 3rd-ever Blue Jay to hit for cycle – Sportsnet.ca

September 17th, 2019

BALTIMORE — Cavan Biggio hit for the cycle, just like his dad.

Biggio homered in the third inning, singled in the sixth, doubled in the eighth and tripled in the ninth to boost the Toronto Blue Jays over the Baltimore Orioles 8-5 on Tuesday night. The rookie drove in four runs and scored three times.

“I did know my dad had one,” Cavan Biggio said. “I have a ticket to the game he got it in in my room my whole life. I didn’t think I was going to get up there for the opportunity.”

He got his first hit off Chandler Shepherd, the second against Shawn Armstrong, the third versus Richard Bleier and the last off Mychal Givens.

Craig Biggio hit for the cycle at Colorado’s Coors Field on April 8, 2002, as part of a career that earned him induction into the Hall of Fame. He led off with a single against Denny Neagle, then tripled and homered off Neagle before doubling versus. Mike James in the eighth.

The only other father-son duo in major league history to hit for the cycle was Gary Ward for Minnesota at Milwaukee on Sept. 19, 1980, and Daryle Ward for Pittsburgh at St. Louis on May 26, 2004.

Cavan Biggio became the first player to hit for the cycle for Toronto since Jeff Fry against Texas on Aug. 17, 2001, and the first opponent to accomplish the feat in the 27-year history of Camden Yards.

“That was a crazy scene,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. “The whole dugout was cheering for him. A triple is hard to get in this ballpark. He was really going all out rounding second. He’s aggressive at the plate and he’s really doing better.”

Trey Mancini and Jonathan Villar homered for last-place Baltimore, which lost for the third time in four games and dropped to 49-102.

Mancini finished with four RBIs. He hit his 34th homer in the first and snapped a tie with a run-scoring single off Justin Shafer in the seventh.

“I think everybody wants to finish the year strong,” Mancini said. “It sounds cliche but it’s honestly what I think about when I go up to the plate is to do what I can to help the team win and try to have a good at-bat.”

The Blue Jays tied the game again when Biggio doubled, stole third and scored on a sacrifice fly by Lourdes Gurriel Jr. in the eighth.

Justin Smoak put Toronto ahead when homered off Givens (2-6) leading off the ninth, Smoak’s 21st homer and first since Aug. 27.

Biggio tacked on two more runs with a triple to before an error by Villar at shortstop allowed the eighth run to score.

Derek Law (1-2) pitched a scoreless eighth inning.

Randal Grichuk hit his 10th homer in 26 games against Baltimore.

Villar hit his 22nd home run off Ken Giles in the ninth.

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde was not happy about several gaffes his team made on the bases and defensively.

“I feel like for the most part this year we’ve competed our tails off. Just fell short quite a few times,” Hyde said. “I just thought we made a lot of mistakes tonight. I thought we played like a really tired team. We need better effort.”

REED

Former Baltimore Ravens safety and NFL Hall of Famer Ed Reed threw out a ceremonial first pitch — a strike down the middle. Reed also handled grounders at shortstop during Orioles batting practice.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Blue Jays: RHP Jordan Romano (elbow) is expected to throw Wednesday and could pitch this weekend if there are no setbacks, according to Montoyo.

Orioles: DH Mark Trumbo was scratched because of neck and back tightness but was available off the bench. … INF Renato Nunez was hit by a pitch in his left hand Monday in Detroit and was not in the lineup. . CF Mason Williams crashed headfirst into the wall on Biggio’s triple but did not show any signs of a concussion, Hyde said.

UP NEXT

Blue Jays: RHP Clay Buchholz (1-5, 5.63 ERA) is 1-3 with a 4.47 ERA since returning from a shoulder injury Aug. 25. He is 11-7 with a 3.76 ERA over 23 games (20 starts) against the Orioles but is facing them for the first time since 2016.

Orioles: RHP Dylan Bundy (6-14, 4.99 ERA) was pushed back a day and will make his team-leading 29th start. Bundy is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts against Toronto this season.

Preseason Game Notes: Ottawa Senators 3 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 1 – Maple Leafs Hot Stove

September 17th, 2019

Well, we’re one game closer to the regular season.

This was exactly what you would expect from the first game of preseason in terms of the competitive intensity and the number of successfully-completed plays (not much in the way of either). The Leafs controlled significant portions of the game and ultimately were out-goaltended in a sloppy, low-scoring affair to kick off preseason out in St. John’s.

The Senators led for much of the game after a weak opening goal by Maxime Lajoie snuck through Frederik Andersen following a giveaway up the wall by Jason Spezza in the first period.

Kasperi Kapanen scored the lone Leaf goal after Mitch Marner took over for a shift in the offensive zone and set up Kapanen in the slot for the 1-1 goal midway early in the third period.

Marner then gave it back six minutes later with a giveaway through the middle of his own zone from behind the goal line that led to Kasimir Kaskisuo getting caught off guard by Tristan Scherwey (who is a real person) for the Senators’ game winner.

That’s all this game really deserves in the way of a recap. Shots finished 24-19 in favour of the Leafs.

Some quick notes:

Jordan Schmaltz stood out positively in his preseason Leafs debut. He played with a lot of urgency to his game — got back on pucks quickly, broke pucks out quickly — looked poised in possession, and moved the pill well throughout. It’s definitely too early to be making these kinds of statements, but he certainly outshone Justin Holl in this one.

Frederik Gauthier was among the best Leaf forwards. As is tradition, he left with nothing to show for it offensively. The ice was consistently tilting the right way with him on the ice; he was gathering speed through the neutral zone, extending plays on the cycle, was all around the net for tips and rebounds, and could’ve easily scored a couple in this game. Goat’s limitations in finishing plays is always going to be his downfall, but a major credit to him for coming out and looking hungry/prepared for the challenge with his 4C job from last season very much in peril. He skated really well throughout and — mandatory mention — was 6’5 every shift.

Egor Korshkov skated on a line wth Goat, and you can see the flashes of potential there. There’s quite a bit of skill to go along with the big frame, but he really fades in and out of games. Curious to see where he’s at after a full season with the Marlies.

– Obviously a nothing tune-up game for Tyson Barrie (reflected in his effort on the Senators’ empty-netter), but it’s going to be enjoyable to watch him each night as the games pick up. He’s a silky-smooth operator breaking out with the puck on his stick as well as manning the offensive blue line, and he’s highly aggressive pinching down the walls knowing he can recover so well with his feet. There was one really nice shift in particular where Muzzin and Barrie hemmed the Sens in for a minute-plus along with the Spezza line, leading to a power play for the Leafs late in the first period.

– We knew this from the end of last year, but Trevor Moore is going to be a useful player this season; you can throw him on either wing on whatever line and you know what you’re going to get from him — boundless energy, consistent second and third efforts, lots of puck pressure all over the ice.

Mason Marchment’s gumption for going to the net and getting on the body is a refreshing sight and it definitely leaps off the page on this Leafs team. He also covers ice deceptively well. The biggest area for improvement for him might be adding some strength/bulk and more stability in his lower half. He made some moves to protect the puck and take it wide only to get thrown off balance a number of times in this game.

– In Dallas, Jason Spezza was often tasked with breaking the zone on the power play for his unit; he could take up the role for the second unit in Toronto, but it might depend whether William Nylander is a part of that group. Given the chance to gain a head of speed, Spezza’s hands are obviously his best asset, and it’s one area where he looked good in this game. Remains to be seen if he can penalty kill; the one time he played a notable role there was in 2010-11 with the Senators (1:52 per game), and to a lesser extent in 2013-14 (47 seconds/game). Otherwise, he hasn’t done it throughout his career.


Mike Babcock Post Game: Senators 3 vs. Leafs 1

On the team’s performance:

I thought they played harder in the first than us. I thought we got it going pretty good in the second and then took a couple penalties. I thought we really had it going in the third. We made a couple of mistakes and it was in our net. Obviously, we’ve got to play a lot better, but for me, a big part of it was just watching guys play. You just put them out there and you watch them play.

We’re going to know them pretty good by the end of his week. I think that is the most important thing. There were lots of things in our team game I didn’t like, so we are going to have to work on that, and that’s what we’ll do.

On standout players:

I liked Goat. I thought Goat was strong. He drove play. He was good without it and good with it. I thought he was a factor for us for sure.

On Kapanen’s game on the left side of the Tavares line:

I’ll watch these guys over [time]. The veteran guys aren’t quite the same thing, if that makes any sense. Obviously, he is a real good player for us. He normally plays in a different type of role, but that line had the puck a lot.

On Jason Spezza’s role:

I am going to figure it out, right? I tried lots of spots there. He is trying to figure out if he is interested and we are doing the same.

We are going to have him penalty killing and taking faceoffs and playing on your fourth line, t’s not what you’re used to. It’s a totally different thing. We are just going to keep plugging away and see where it goes.

On the big bodies of Korshkov, Engvall and Marchment:

I thought big Korshkov has real good hands and he’s a big, big body. We’d love for one of these guys to be NHL ready. We’d absolutely love that. Just because we’d love that doesn’t mean that is going to happen. We’re just going to watch them. They’ve got a couple of weeks here to show.

On the power play:

It didn’t score any goals and we needed one. We had some looks and stuff like that, but I am not very concerned about our power play. We will get our groups together. The rest of the group is on the other team and we don’t have them combined. I am not as concerned about that.

If you look at our game, we weren’t very good without it at times and they used the speed like we do to flip it and get us in trouble. They had us in trouble at times, so we’ve got to fix that.

Nick Carter revealed Tuesday on Twitter that he and his sister have sought a restraining order against their brother, Aaron Carter.

“After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today,” the 39-year-old singer stated.

“In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family,” Nick — who’s expecting his second baby with wife Lauren Kitt — alleged.

“We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else,” Nick concluded the post, which he shared with the hashtags #mentalhealth, #GunControlNow and #GunControl.

Truth Tracker: A look at Trudeau’s claim that Conservatives are ‘in the pocket of the gun lobby’ – CTV News

September 17th, 2019

TORONTO – Faced with questions about a rash of gun violence in some Canadian cities — most notably in the Toronto area — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said his party has a plan to “strengthen gun control” and accused the Conservatives of being “in the pocket of the gun lobby.”

Speaking to a Kitchener, Ont., radio station on Monday, Trudeau said the Liberals have already improved gun control “in meaningful ways over the past year.”

“Unfortunately, the Conservatives have announced they’re going to roll back those gun control protections which I think is moving in the wrong direction,” he said. “Canadians need to be safe. We’re not in the pocket of the gun lobby like the Conservatives seem to be.”

Accusing a political rival of bowing to the gun lobby is common in the United States, where the National Rifle Association (NRA) wields significant political power. The NRA has donated large sums of money to U.S. lawmakers to advance its agenda and its role is hotly debated after every mass shooting in the country.

However, corporate donations are banned in Canada, which means lobby groups don’t have the power to influence political parties like the NRA does. 

And while Conservatives have taken meetings in the past with Canada’s two largest gun groups – the National Firearms Association and the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights, so have the Liberals. The lobbyist registry shows several such meetings were held with MPs, ministers’ staff and even members of the Prime Minister’s Office.

The Liberals announced in 2017 that they would allocate up to $327.6 million over five years and $100 million a year after that to fight gun and gang violence. The $100-million-per-year pledge was part of their 2015 election campaign platform.

Some voters question whether Canada is ready for a PM with a turban – CTV News

September 17th, 2019

Wearing a bright yellow turban, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh stepped onto the orange tractor in Verner, Ont., on Tuesday to a round of applause from supporters. But in the back of the crowd at this year’s International Plowing Match, some voters were turned off by the image.

“Me, it does not bother me too much but that guy, that is a very smart guy, but to wear his hat the way it is, I don’t think everybody likes that,” said Verner resident and self-declared NDP supporter Marcel Betty.

Betty, just one of thousands at the plowing match known as a fall must-stop for provincial politicians, told CTV News he likes what Singh stands for and has voted for the party provincially and federally — but he feels that Canada isn’t ready for a Sikh prime minister.

“He could explain something why he has to wear that here because we are not familiar to have a guy like that with a position like that,” Betty went on to say. “If he would take it off, and be normal like us, I would vote right away because I am a (New Democrat) myself.”

CTV News spoke to a number of other voters at the same event who wouldn’t give their name but issued the same sentiment. Many said they wished they knew more about Sikhs and said they felt they weren’t ready just yet to vote for a party leader who wears a turban.

Singh has been open throughout his career about the racism he faced from a young age. He said his mother taught him to fight division and negativity with a message of unity and love.

It’s that message he shared with a roomful of hundreds of supporters at a town hall in Sudbury, Ont., on Tuesday.

“I believe in Canada. I believe in Canadians and I believe Canadians are ready for someone who is going to put them first,” Singh said.

“A lot of people face barriers because of who they are. I’ve experienced a little bit of what that’s like and I want to build a Canada where everyone is included,” he added.

Support for the NDP in Quebec has been eroding since Jack Layton’s Orange Wave united the province in 2011. Singh and his team are trying to build off Layton’s vision for the province by promoting the party as an ally to Quebecers. But that will not be easy, since he is openly opposed to Bill 21, which is extremely popular in the province.

The NDP leader says he knows standing up for what is right takes courage and he vowed to continue doing just that.

“I faced it all my life, that people have said things about my look — that’s not new,” Singh said in Sudbury.

“When faced with negativity the only way to overcome that is not with more negativity, not with name calling, but by trying to find that human connection, by saying I care about you and I want to build a better country and I want to build that together.”

Two weeks ago, Jonathan Richardson, the former federal NDP’s executive member for Atlantic Canada who was one of the defectors, said some potential candidates were hesitant to run in the province because they thought Singh’s turban limited their chances of getting elected.

While Singh was running for the NDP leadership in 2017, he was heckled in Mississauga, Ont., by a woman who yelled at him asking whether he supports Sharia Law.

And earlier this month, Singh’s brother Gurratan, an NDP legislator in Ontario, was accosted by a far-right activist at a MuslimFest in Toronto.
