first_imgSting, Shaggy move to the top of the Billboard chartsThe unlikely duo of Sting and Shaggy continue to make waves in reggae circles, with their album taking the number one spot on the Billboard Reggae Charts for another straight week.‘44/876,’ which features such tracks as ‘Don’t Make Me Wait,’ “Gotta Get Back My Baby,” “Waiting For The Break Of Day,” and ‘Morning Is Coming,’ has earned rave reviews for the chemistry between the two and playfulness of the album. The two apparently met after Shaggy apparently crashed one of Sting’s performances of ‘Roxanne.’”Shaggy has explained that despite the abrupt way the two met, they ended up having a good rapport with one another. So much so that he eventually asked Sting to offer his vocals to a track he was working on. In the studio, the duo realized that their voices blended really well together and the rest was history._______________________________________________________Mr. Vegas releases ‘Wakanda Jam’ Reggae and Dancehall star, Mr. Vegas, has dropped his newest single just as the blockbuster movie Black Panther is released on DVD.“Wakanda Jam” was officially released May 4th, 2018 and is a playful uptempo song that has taken dance floors by storm.

If you are rich, you are benefited when you look at short term…..but he has screwed the future of this state. ANYTHING or ANYONE is better than Brownback. Ignorance is continuing to do something that you know doesn’t work, but expecting a different outcome.

Kansas schools rank in the top five nationally. All I hear from Paul Davis is that he is going to raise taxes and give more money to education. We have been through that experience before and the only result we got was higher taxes. More money for education does not guarantee any improvement, all it guarantees is higher taxes that will impede economic growth, lead to fewer business ventures and a reduction in population as people leave the state for lower taxes and more opportunities.

What Andy Dalton’s release from Bengals means for Patriots, Cam Newton

first_imgMORE: SN’s latest NFL Power RankingsSo that immediately brings up the question: Does Dalton become a realistic option for the Patriots? Second-year QB Jarrett Stidham remains New England’s starting replacement for Tom Brady after the team neither added a veteran contingency option nor drafted any rookie competition. Second, how does Dalton’s sudden availablity affect the unsigned status of Newton?Here’s breaking down what Dalton’s release means for the two biggest quarterback queries left in the 2020 NFL offseason:Would the Patriots sign Andy Dalton?Dalton is a 32-year-old three-time Pro Bowler. The times he was at his best with the Bengals, he had everything in place around him with the receving corps, offensive line, running game and defense. “Game manager” is an unfair label for Dalton, but “dependent” is not. He won’t carry a team with limitations in the way Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers do. But he can lean well on a good supporting cast to be efficient and win a lot of games.The Patriots have some seasoned answers with their wideouts in Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu, who had good chemistry with Dalton in Cincinnati. They have a solid front and did a draft overhaul of their tight ends. They can rebound as a stronger running team and should still feel confident in their defense.So the enviroment is favorable for Dalton to “do his job” for Bill Belichick with the intelligence to pick up Josh McDaniels’ offense well in a crash course. The problem is, Dalton doesn’t really offer more upside than Stidham, who already has a year in the system and is capable of at least being a caretaker to meet the Patriots’ needs with the potenital for more. The Patriots also have only around $1 million under the salary cap, and it’s not worth it to free up room for Dalton at the cost of likely cutting or trading from the offense elsewhere.There wasn’t much of a sense that the Patriots were interested in trading for Dalton before the draft. After the draft, knowing they didn’t address the position over all three days, it would be odd for them to want to grab Dalton now. Just like with Newton, attaching New England to Dalton seems to be out of convenience, rather than reality, although for different reasons.MORE: Complete 2020 NFL Draft resultsWould Andy Dalton be signed ahead of Cam Newton?Unfortunately, Dalton’s release creates another obstacle for Newton in trying to find a team. Part of the reason the Patriots would be out on Newton are the unknown quantites regarding his health and personality fit. Part of the reason other teams haven’t acted on Newton are concerns over whether he would be a willing veteran backup.There’s no issue like that with Dalton. He has the right makeup to accept that job. He also has a better direct connection to a possible landing spot for Newton. The Bengals won’t be keeping Andy Dalton as the backup quarteback to No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow. Cincinnati finally released its long-time starter Thursday, one week after drafting Burrow.With Jameis Winston signing with the Saints, it’s now Dalton and fellow 2011 draftee Cam Newton as the best quarterbacks available in NFL free agency. The Jaguars hired Jay Gruden as their offensive coordinator. Gruden also was in that capacity for the Bengals when Dalton was an immediate successful starter during his first three seasons in the league. There’s a very good chance with Gardner Minshew currently backed up by rookie sixth-rounder Jake Luton and former Steeler Joshua Dobbs, that Dalton ends up serving as the veteran No. 2 they need to help Minshew with the transition.Newton had some similar connections with the Broncos (Mike Shula) and the Redskins (Scott Turner). But the Broncos made their offseason all about supporting and further developing second-year QB Drew Lock instead of turning back to the bridge veteran route. The Redskins already traded for Newton’s former teammate Kyle Allen to bring some offensive familiarty to pair with second-year QB Dwayne Haskins.It’s difficult to see Dalton having a long wait to land with another team, with Jacksonville being the ideal, most logical new spot. As for the Patriots and Newton, Dalton entering the market likely does nothing to change their current situations, for better or worse.last_img read more
