Biar Tidak Kecopetan, Yuk Kenali Ciri-Ciri Terduga Copet

first_img1. Gerakan tanganBiasanya gerak gerik seorang pencopet memang susah dikenali, namun ada beberapa gerakan yang bisa dilihat yakni tangan si pencopet. Tangan pencopet akan mencari sasaran dan menyelinap di antara himptan-himpitan tubuh orang-orang baik yang akan menjadi korban atau tidak.2. Lirikan mataPaling mudah sebenarnya adalah melihat lirikan mata. Pencopet tidak akan melirik pada satu tujuan bila belum menemukan targetnya. Namun, bila target sudah ditemukan maka, si copet akan terus melihat ke arah target. Contohnya bila melihat tas terbuka atau dompet yang sedikit menyembul keluar dari saku, penglihatan copet ini seperti mata elang dan bisa dengan mudah melihat targetnya dengan jelas.3. Posisi berdiriPencopet bila sudah mendapatkan target incarannnya, akan berdiri mendekati sang korban. Kemudian perlahan-lahan memepet korban dan langsung mengambil barang-barang korban seperti dompet ataupun ponsel.4. PenampilanSetiap copet pastinya tidak ingin diketahui dirinya copet. Kadang orang yang layaknya pekerja kantoran juga bisa menjadi seorang copet dan yang berpakaian kumal biasanya bukan. Namun, banyak yang berpersepsi seorang copet lebih ke berpakaian kumal. Bila Anda melihat yang kumal berarti copet benar-benar seperti bunglon. Selain itu tampang seroang copet juga tidak bisa dikenali dengan jelas. Karena mimik wajahnya sama dengan masyarakat biasanya yang sedang naik kendaraan umum.5. GenderJangan salah, seorang copet bukan hanya laki-laki, karena perempuann juga ada yang berprofesi sebagai copet.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related The New Yorker Apa yang kerap di khawatirkan saat naik kendaraan umum?

Sani Brown sprints to head of class

first_imgOSAKA – The 10-second barrier has been unbreakable for Japanese sprinters in the 100 meters, Koji Ito coming the closest in 1998 when he ran it in 10 seconds flat.But Abdul Hakim Sani Brown, the 18-year-old half-Ghanaian prodigy, is giving Japan hope the wall may finally come down after completing the 100-200 double at the national athletics championships on Sunday, the first sprinter to accomplish the feat since Shingo Suetsugu in 2003. University of Florida, Abdul Hakim Sani Brown, Koji Ito, National Athletics Championships, Shota Iizuka Sani Brown rewrote his personal best in both the 100 and 200, his time of 10.05 in the 100 the sixth fastest ever by a Japanese. He did it while beating all four members of the nationally heralded Rio Olympic silver medal-winning 4×100 medley relay team — Ryota Yamagata, Shota Iizuka, Yoshihide Kiryu and Aska Cambridge.Sani Brown will make his second appearance at the world championships in London in August, when all eyes in Japan will be on him to see how much he has gained on the likes of Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin.The nationals were a confirmation of Sani Brown’s touted potential, and have quickly shot him to Tokyo Olympic-bound stardom alongside fellow teenagers such as Takefusa Kubo in soccer and Rikako Ikee in swimming.While he missed Rio last year due to injury, Sani Brown broke Bolt’s record in the 100 and 200 at the 2015 world youth championships. The double there earned him the IAAF Rising Star award.None of the early success seems to be going to Sani Brown’s head, however. What was on his mind after being named the top male athlete of the nationals on Sunday evening was — supper.“I’ll crash for a few days and eat some good food and recover,” Sani Brown said with a big smile, salivating over his options in the Japanese carbs-capital that Osaka is known for being. “Then I’ll go back to the Netherlands and work hard again.“I’m very happy about being No. 1 in Japan, but I don’t want to settle for this. I want to do well at the world championships and other competitions I’ve got ahead of me.”He drew singular praise from his fellow competitors at the nationals who struggled to keep up with the 188-cm speedster.“He’s so big I thought I was competing at the world championships,” said Iizuka, who was the defending 200 champion at the nationals and will compete against Sani Brown in the discipline in London. “Not too many Japanese are bigger than me in athletics, but he’s massive.“I think what he’s doing is great. We went to Rio and achieved what we achieved, and it probably spurred Hakim on. So now we have to feed off him and try to do better.”Sani Brown has taken his training base abroad, and is set to enroll this fall at the University of Florida, one of the top sports colleges in the United States. He credits his improvement from last season to the coaching he has received overseas.“I think there’s a difference in the way coaches work in Japan and the way the top coaches in the world work,” Sani Brown said. “I’ve done a lot of weight training which has strengthened my core, and that’s stabilized my upper body when I run.”Japan’s 100 record-holder Ito, now the head of development at the Japan Association of Athletics Federations, said the wunderkind has a feel for sprinting that only the great ones have.“For someone his age, he knows how to take it up a notch with each round in a competition,” Ito said. “It’s a good sign because he’s been a junior champion, but to do it at the senior level, he will need to put up fast times comfortably.“Like Carl Lewis or Bolt, he has the ability to rein it in until 60 or 70 meters before letting it all go, and that is a quality not everyone has. The four who won a medal in Rio have talent, but so does Hakim, who beat them all.”Yet Sani Brown’s most admirable quality might be his temperament, the easy-going way he carries himself in a country where athletes tend to be overhyped at a young age, and can be forgotten quickly and ruthlessly without instant results.“It’s understandable for people to get nervous or worked up wanting to win, but I think the most important thing is to enjoy the race, have fun competing,” he said. “As long as you don’t forget that part, I don’t think you can become nervous.“It feels great to run fast, and the more competitive it gets, the better for me.” RELATED PHOTOS KEYWORDScenter_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Abdul Hakim Sani Brown (center) ran personal bests in both the 100 and 200-meter sprints during the national athletics championships. | KYODOlast_img read more

Trump gives posthumous pardon to first black heavyweight champion Jack Johnson

first_img“I am taking this very righteous step, I believe, to correct a wrong that occurred in our history and honor a truly legendary boxing athlete,” Trump told his guests. “Jack Johnson was not treated fairly and we have corrected that.”Johnson was convicted under a law that prohibited the transport of women over state lines, called the Mann Act. The law was sometimes employed by racist authorities to punish black men who had relationships with white women; it was later amended to apply only to the transport of women for purposes of prostitution or illegal sex acts.Johnson’s case has been derided for decades as shaky and motivated by racial animus toward the boxer, who defeated white opponents in the ring and enjoyed relationships with white women out of it. WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump granted a full, posthumous pardon for Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was convicted of racially tinged federal morals charges more than a century ago.Trump signed a full posthumous pardon for Johnson while flanked by boxing royalty including Lennox Lewis, Deontay Wilder and Rocky himself, actor Sylvester Stallone.

Sleeman helps PNG girls and women aspiring to be referees

first_imgRugby League Belinda Sleeman was front page news in Papua New Guinea last season (2017) when she was appointed with Chris Anderson to referee the Round 22 Intrust Super Cup game at the Oil Search National Football Stadium in Port Moresby between the PNG Hunters and Ipswich Jets. The Queensland referees high performance unit member made history in that game as the first female match official to be involved in a game of that level in front of rugby league fans in PNG. Her involvement in the women in league match was seen as a big step in helping to show women and girls in PNG who have aspirations to become referees in the future that anything is possible. In great news – this game, in turn with some fantastic work at the grassroots level – has paid dividends with a number of girls signing up to be part of the match officials pathway in PNG. Sleeman saw this growth first hand when she recently visited the country as part of the officiating squad at the Prime Minister’s XIII matches this past October. The Australian-based match officials attended a beyond the goal posts clinic, which is part of a program run by NRL development staff on the ground in PNG. The referee education program is aimed at girls and boys in upper primary and high school and will provide participants (junior referee) with NRL level 1 accreditation to officiate in PNGRFL mini mod competition. The course is made up of 10 units and upon completion, participants will receive accreditation equivalent to Australian NRL level 1 accreditation. While attending the clinic, Sleeman encouraged the girls to remain committed to their training, stating that as challenging as officiating may be, it was a rewarding pursuit as it helps build character and allows those who do it to learn a lot about themselves. She also helped educated the students on the laws of the game and led participants through signal and whistle techniques before taking part in a Q and A session. After the clinic, the young referees were each given a jersey and were excited to continue working hard to become accredited match officials.last_img read more

Chelsea ‘willing to bid strong’ for player as potential transfer is…

first_imgSport reported on Wednesday the midfielder has put pressure on president Josep Maria Bartomeu to offer him a new deal, but the La Liga winners have no plans to meet his demands.Today’s edition of the same publication explains there are several clubs after the Croatia international and the Catalan newspaper claims one of them is Chelsea, who are ‘willing to bid strong’ for the former Sevilla man.Rakitic has been a key player under Ernesto Valverde’s guidance and if the latter is at the helm next season, the manager is likely to urge the player to stay at the Camp Nou.The former Athletic Club Bilbao boss will ‘do everything possible’ to prevent Rakitic from being seduced by any of the interesting offers he has on the table.Another report from Sport claims the 30-year-old’s exit would not be an issue for the Spanish champions since Frenkie de Jong will arrive at the club next season. If Rakitic wants to leave, Barca will demand €65m from potential suitors and the Blaugrana are aware that big clubs are interested in him.Whether Chelsea will be interested in spending €65m on a player who will be 31 in March is to be seen.A potential Rakitic transfer has been strongly pushed by the Spanish media this week, which may suggest someone is encouraging the story.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameWill You Build The Most Beautiful City?Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles find each other in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥Undo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoCNN with DBS BankWhat Banks Did To Help Corporations Mitigate Future CrisesCNN with DBS BankUndo Ivan Rakitic has over two years left on his contract at Barcelona.last_img read more

He was a starting wide receiver in Michigan’s legendary upset of No. 1 ranked Ohio State in 1969.Former Michigan football player and coach Bill Harris, who sill speak at the June 2 LSJ Golf Outing. Photo/Marc HoeksemaHe later coached under Schembechler and his successor, Gary Moeller, and served alongside Lloyd Carr and Les Miles on the Michigan staff. Jim Harbaugh was the Wolverines’ quarterback during Harris’ first season of coaching.But his greatest claim to fame was the recruiting effort that made Brady a Wolverine.“Every college coach has a recruiting area,” said Harris, 69, an Oceana County resident who will be the featured speaker at the Local Sports Journal  Golf Outing on June 2 at Oakridge Golf Club. “I happened to have the west coast, and Brady was from San Mateo, California.“Brady’s high school coach had sent us some film of him playing. It ended up on my desk, I liked what I saw, I showed the quarterback coach and Gary Moeller, and they liked it.“I went out there (to California) to meet this young man. I saw that he was 6-4, and the coach told me he also played baseball. I’m assumed, because of his throwing arm, that he must be a pitcher, but then I found out he was a catcher. From what I know about baseball, if you’re a catcher you must be a pretty tough nut. I figured this kid must have a little toughness to him.“So I met Tom, we had an opportunity to bring him to Ann Arbor, and we convinced him it was the place to be.”Harris said he quickly recognized qualities that Brady had in common with Harbaugh, who was an NFL quarterback by then.“I got to be around (Harbaugh) a lot, and he was always striving for perfection,” he said. “Getting to know Tommy, that was one thing that everybody out there – parents, coaches and teachers – would talk about, that he had a drive to be the best at whatever he did.”Harris recalls the phone call from Brady, in February 1995, that sealed the deal.“I explained to Tommy what it means to be a Michigan man, how we want to succeed the right way, and he called me and said he wanted to be a Michigan man,” Harris said. “I told Coach Moeller, and he called Tommy and said we have a scholarship for you. Let’s run with it.”Ironically, Harris recruited Brady to Michigan after he had coached his final season at Michigan. He moved on to coach at Stanford University in the 1995 season, and was not on staff when Brady joined the team.But before moving on, Harris struck up a friendship with Brady and his parents, which endures to this day.When Brady came home from college to visit his family, Harris, then working at nearby Stanford, would often join him and his father for golf. When Harris left Stanford to take a coaching job at Eastern Michigan University, his wife stayed with Brady’s parents for about six months, before she joined him in Ypsilanti.When Harris’ daughter was married in Ann Arbor, Brady attended the wedding and reception.“A few years ago, when we went out to New York and saw Tom play, we met up with him and he introduced me as the man who brought him to Michigan,” said Harris, whose son-in-law, former Michigan standout Corwin Brown, was an assistant coach with the New York Jets at the time.Playing for Bo Harris’ connection to the Michigan football program dates back to the 1960s.He graduated Clintondale High School in Mount Clemens, Michigan in 1966, and was recruited by both Michigan and Michigan State.Bump Elliott, the Michigan head coach who preceded Schembechler, visited his home. Former Michigan State Coach Duffy Daugherty spoke at his high school senior banquet.Harris catches a pass during Michigan’s 1969 upset of No. 1 ranked Ohio State.He said he chose Michigan after visiting both schools and meeting the football players.“All those guys (at Michigan State) did was party, and I was not exactly a party animal,” Harris said. “At Michigan all the talk was about academics and chilling. I just knew they were more like me.”Harris played at Michigan from 1966 through 1970, spending his first season as a redshirt freshman. He was a starting wide receiver for two full seasons and part of a third.He was there when Schembechler came on board in 1969 to replace Elliott as head coach.He said Schembechler’s reputation for being an intense and demanding coach was completely accurate.Harris remembers one instance when Schembechler blamed offensive lineman (and current U-M football radio broadcaster) Jim Brandstatter for missing a block during a game that resulted in a blocked punt.“At practice after that, Bo chased down Brandstatter and kicked him in the butt for missing that block,” Harris said. “Then Jerry Hanlon, the offensive line coach, informed Bo that Brandstatter was not the one who missed the block.”Harris recalls being the target of Bo’s wrath once or twice himself.“I remember one time in practice, the quarterback threw me a little pass that I should have caught, but I dropped it,” he said. “Bo let me know, in no uncertain terms, that that was unacceptable, and if I kept it up I would not be playing for Michigan.”The highlight of Schembechler’s first season in 1969 was Michigan’s shocking 24-14 upset of undefeated and No. 1 ranked Ohio State. Harris started in that game, and remembers it as the high point of his college career.“Particularly after the year before, when they beat us 50-14,” Harris said about the joy of beating the Buckeyes. “When Ohio State scored its last touchdown in that game, Woody Hayes put his first-team people back in there and went for two points (on the conversion). They got it and ended up scoring 50 points.“After the game the reporters asked Woody why he went for two, and he said it was because he couldn’t go for three. The next year, when Bo came in, he put a sign up on everyone’s locker that said ’50-14.’ That got everybody a little lathered up to play them again.“Ohio State had not been beaten in like 2 ½ years. They were fat and happy, so when we beat them we were pretty happy.”Years later, Harris’ adult son, also named Bill, was watching an old film of that game on ESPN Classic.“He called me and said, ‘Dad, I knew you played in that game, but I didn’t know you were a starter,’” Harris said with a chuckle.The upset victory earned the Wolverines a berth in the 1970 Rose Bowl against USC. But the team played with a heavy heart, after learning that Schembechler had suffered his first heart attack the night before the game.“Right before we got on the bus to go play the game, (assistant coach) Jim Young told us that Bo had a heart attack the night before, and then all these guys were crying and feeling bad. That was not the best way to get ready to go win a game.“We ended up losing 10-3. I had a chance to catch a ball in the end zone and it rolled off the tip of my fingers. I could have tied that game up.”To make matters worse, Harris suffered a knee injury in the Rose Bowl that all but ended his playing career. He suited up for the 1970 season, but did not play.Schembechler gave him a final honor in the final game of the 1970 season, at Ohio State.“He wrote my name down as a starter for that game, so I was announced as a starting wide receiver, even though I couldn’t play,” Harris said. “Bo was real nice about it.”Going home to Ann ArborHarris became a college football coach after leaving Michigan.He spent time as an assistant at Grand Valley State University, Western Michigan University, Dartmouth and the University of Washington, under legendary head coach Don James.In 1984 Washington visited Ann Arbor and beat the Wolverines at the Big House. Not long after Harris visited U-M and Schembechler summoned him to his office.Harris in the basement of his New Era home, with his U-M  memorabilia collection. Photo/Marc Hoeksema“He said he was going to be making some changes, and that I should come and join the staff,” Harris said. “I said I had a great job at Washington, and Don James was treating me well, but he said ‘No, no, you need to come back home.’”So that’s what Harris did.“This was 1986, Jim Harbaugh was the quarterback, and we ended up winning the Big 10 and going to the Rose Bowl,” Harris said of his first season on the U-M staff.Harris spent that first season as the receivers coach, then became the defensive backs coach.Schembechler retired after the 1989 season. Harris stayed on under the new head coach, Gary Moeller, for the next five seasons.Harris helped coach six Michigan teams to Big 10 championships, including five that played in the Rose Bowl.He coached many outstanding defensive backs at Michigan, including All-Americans Ty Law and Tripp Welborne. Harris was also the punt return team coach, and worked with Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard.His experience at Michigan led to the job as defensive coordinator at Stanford, from 1995 through 1998. He said the team had limited success during his time there.“Our only claim to fame is that we beat Michigan State, under Nick Saban, 38-0 in the Sun Bowl,” Harris said.Harris’ last college coaching stop was at Eastern Michigan University, from 2000-2003. He served under head coach Jeff Woodruff, whom he had worked with at Washington.“I spent three years at Eastern, and we all ended up getting fired,” Harris said about coaching at a school with a long history of football futility. “We thought we had the answer, but we didn’t. The coaches before us got fired, we got fired, and the coaches after us got fired.”In the years since he left U-M, Harris has watched with pride and amazement as Brady, his prize recruit, went on to win five Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, and become one of the greatest – and perhaps the very best – quarterback to ever play the game.Brady was good at Michigan, but showed few signs of developing into the superstar he’s become. Harris said that was because he never had the chance to play every game on a consistent basis.Brady shared playing time for several seasons with Drew Henson, another prized quarterback recruit.“Brady was recruited under Gary Moeller, then Lloyd Carr went out and recruited Drew Henson, who was the number one high school player at the time,” Harris said. “Tommy took over as quarterback, then the next year Lloyd opened up the quarterback position for competition. He wanted Drew to play and not leave and go to the Yankees (who had selected Henson in the Major League Baseball draft).“If Lloyd had done what other coaches did, and let his starting quarterback remain the starter unless he stopped winning, (Brady) would have had the chance to show what he had. But we never got the chance to see it.” Add Comments (Max 320 characters) Add Comments (Max 320 characters) ENDS IN Inappropriate / Offensive DEAL OF THE DAY Shop Related Products Other ENDS IN Displayed poorly Bestseller DEAL OF THE DAY Ads by Amazon Displayed poorly ENDS IN (394) Share Other Bestseller A Very Brady Sequel DEAL OF THE DAY Inappropriate / Offensive Ads by Amazonlast_img read more

Many teams have extended the allowances.In addition, about 370 players with major league service who were at spring training with minor league contracts received advance payments of up to $50,000 each from the union.Image credits: AP FOLLOW USlast_img read more

Ibrahim Sannie picks FPA Media Award

first_imgGhanaian BBC journalist, Ibrahim Sannie Daara has along with his two colleagues Gavin Lee and Edward Main, won the Best Sports Story of the Year award at the prestigious Foreign Press Association Media Awards (FPA Media Awards) in Britain.The scooping of the award on Tuesday night is massive accomplishment for Sannie as winning a FPA Media Award is justly seen as the crowning achievement of any journalist’s career.Their investigation exposing conmen masquerading as agents in African football edged out stiff competition from the UK’s Observer Newspaper and Bloomberg TV of the United States to win the award at the event presided by the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles.The investigation received worldwide acclaim as fake agents in Nigeria were exposed for exploiting many poor young African footballers who were conned out of thousands of dollars in the sophisticated scam.Many of the world’s major broadcasters, newspapers and news magazines were among the large number of entries for the eleven awards but the BBC dominated the event.This year’s ceremony at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in central London marked the 120th anniversary of the FPA, which was founded in 1888 to help journalists from across the globe report on events. Ibrahim Sannie joined the BBC in 2004 after working with Choice FM in Accra and also as the Ghana correspondent for South African broadcaster SABC TV Africa.He has secured exclusive interviews with leaders in world football from FIFA president Sepp Blatter, CAF boss Issa Hayatou and UEFA president Michel Platini as well as German legends Franz Benkenbauer and Lothar Matthaus.The Ghanaian has also interviewed almost all of Africa’s top players of the present and past generations including George Weah, Abedi Pele, Samuel Eto’o, Stephen Appiah, Michael Essien, Emmanuel Adebayor and Amr Zaki.Sannie gained international prominence in 2001 when his personal appeal to FIFA earned Ghanaian goalkeeper Sumaila Abdallah the FIFA Fair Play Award for saving an opponent’s life during a game through mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.His tremendous reporting and humanity at the Accra Sports Stadium on 9th May, 2001 when 126 fans perished during a local league game was also highly praised. While reporters and fans rushed home to watch a UEFA Champions League game on television immediately after the infamous match between arch-rivals Hearts of Oak and Kotoko, Sannie stayed behind to discover the gory sight.He broke the news on radio with a brief report before joining the few fans at the stadium to give first aid to the injured and helped to evacuate the dead as the emergency services delayed in arriving.Sannie graduated from Cardiff University with an MA in International Journalism where he wrote a thesis was on: ‘The exploitation of African footballers in Europe’.Source: Ghanasoccernetlast_img read more
