The “Jane Doe” accusing Derrick Rose of rape and suing him for $21.5 million said that despite his game face, the Knicks guard is “in a bad place” and “has to deal with” what he did to her.

“I think he must be in a bad place with everything that happened to me. I just feel like knowing that he was able to do what he did, he has to deal with that,” the 30 year old California woman told the Daily News. “He has to deal with that. He has to deal with what he did to me with his friends. I think that alone is a huge deal for him whether he’s showing it or not.”

The woman said there were two Roses: the one she saw in their private moments, and the one who takes over after he gets around his friends.

“The person I met is different from what happened, than what transpired after we stopped talking,” she added. “I just think he’s in a bad place and I know that he’s confused and his environment has really influenced his actions and his understanding of what’s right and wrong.”

“I have two views of him,” the accuser said.

“It’s almost like there are two different identities. 4 his 28th birthday on charges that he and two of his friends sexually assaulted the woman when she was passed out.

She alleges that Rose, a former league MVP, and two other men, Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen, gang raped her at her home in the early hours of Aug. 27,

Despite the acrimonious back and forth, the unidentified woman has nearly kind words for Rose, views she said were forged from a two year relationship with the all star point guard.

She also said her parents knew nothing about the relationship or the lawsuit.

Derrick Rose kept asking gang rape accuser for foursome

She told The News that she wants to keep it that way, which is why she is hoping Rose settles before the case goes to trial.

The woman said she doesn’t want to risk her name going public.

“I just don’t know who knows,” she said.

“I just don’t know when I look around, and when I see people staring at me, I don’t know if they’re staring at me what their reason is. I never had those thoughts before. Now I think about whether they know who I am, whether they’ve seen something online or somebody told them something and they don’t like me.”

Derrick Rose gang rape accuser’s texts prove she’s lying: lawyers

Although she is suing Rose for millions, she insists she’s no gold digger.

“When he sat at that deposition for all those hours, he never said anything that implied me as a money chaser,” she said. “He was the one that would offer me things and I would say no. He knows that. Everything that they’ve said about me, and the way they try to paint the picture, I know has been done by others.”

She also addressed criticism about her decision to file a civil lawsuit against Rose and his pals rather than pursue criminal charges.

“I’m not familiar with the law,” she said.

“I didn’t know the difference between civil and criminal and all the different concepts and language of the law. But I knew that if I came forward to the police,

states border the Pacific Ocean? Which president signed the 1958 act that created NASA? They not only have to buzz in before the other team, but they could also face a point penalty for the wrong answer.

Among them this year is a group of students from Salem High School, who have been preparing for months. But, anything could happen when they begin competing in the Granite State Challenge this week or continue on in the New Hampshire Quiz Bowl League next month.

Being good at these academic and cultural quizzesisn’t something that can be taught, Salem High School teacher and quiz bowl coach Bernie W. Campbell said.

“One third of it is knowing the answer, and two thirds is having the confidence to push the button first and risk being wrong,” he said. “You have to be confident, overconfident, almost arrogant.”

Thestudents may not be feeling overconfident or arrogant heading into their first competition this weekend, after a loss officials called heartbreaking last year, but theteam comprisedmainly of seniors is eager to enjoy their final year and potentially secure the championship that has eluded them the last few years.

“It’s a really fun atmosphere.

Salem’s team was named the Granite State Challenge champions in the 1997 1998 and 2001 2002 school years, but have not made it to the finals in recent years. Since the team was revitalized in 2014, however, they have made it to the semi finals. They hope to go all of the way this year.

“We think we’re going to do well this year,” said senior Alexis Ahern, 17.

Each students has their own strengths. Tarness and sophomore Kolby Dezan, 16, are considered to be the American history experts, while seniorOba Oseghali, 18, has strengths in the sciences.

Together, this may be Salem’s dream team.

“We’re not looking for the geniuses. We’re looking for kids that are well rounded, that have a broad level of interest in not just academic subjects, but in current events and pop culture,” Adams said.

The Granite State Challenge is a also personal passion for their coach of three years. Bernie Campbellwas a member during theteam’s championshipseason in 1998, and connected with his now wife, Sara Campbell, during his time as team captain.

The Campbell household has become a bit of a quiz capital. Not only did the couple bond over the competition, but Sara Campbell now coaches the Merrimack High School team, which narrowly lost the championship match to Nashua High School South last year.

“My dream is to have them meet each other in a game,” said Susan Adams, who produces the Granite State Challenge telecast for New Hampshire Public Television. She notedthat both teams are incredibly strong coming into this season.

Bernie Campbell estimates the Salem High School team is among the top seated teams going into the first round of competitions this weekend. The competition will beshown on New Hampshire Public Television beginning Feb. 10.

adidas gazelle navy ‘Good times all around’

His days of “Burnin’ Up” and Disney’s “Camp Rock” may have passed, but Nick Jonas has not left the public eye. Over the past few years, the singer and actor has continued to produce an eclectic collection of fresh content, much to the excitement of his substantial fan base. Recently, Jonas has even broken into the world of blockbuster movies, appearing as the gallant, margarita making pilot Alex in “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

The film, a sequel to the original 1995 “Jumanji,” follows four teenagers whose encounter with an old video game sucks them into the virtual world of the game itself, operating from within the bodies of their chosen avatars.

The film features stars including Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Jack Black, allowing Jonas the opportunity to act alongside some of contemporary Hollywood’s biggest names.

From the start, Jonas noted a key difference between his experience in the world of music and that of acting the social element.

“The fun of making an album is that you get to tell your own stories, go on your journey creatively and I think it’s really individual to you,” the actor mused in a roundtable interview with The Daily Californian. “With a film, you’re telling somebody else’s story and working with a group. That’s really a team effort. All hands on deck are required to make it happen.”

In fact, the collaborative nature of the process yielded some of Jonas’ fondest memories from the shoot. He spoke of his time with fellow actor Jack Black with particular affection “We would jump around on the weekends to different spots to go eat food and hang out. And he’s just the best, one of my favorite guys, and really someone I hope I get the chance to work with again.”Jonas went so far as to label the relationship a true “bromance,” and the pair graced fans with an original theme song for the movie.

At the same time, despite the intrinsically collaborative elements of acting, Jonas pointed out the influence of his personal life in his approach to embodying Alex.

In fact, Jonas refers to the deeply personal nature of music as a significant point of departure in the process of merging his own life with his character on screen. “I think it’s the best way, from the songwriting side, for me to connect the dots creatively, and it really does kind of apply on the acting side of things as well,” he stated.

While his own life has informed his role in the film, Jonas also cited the film’s role in spurring him to reflect upon himself. “In my own life, I’ve been thinking a lot about what my strengths and weaknesses would be if I had to categorize it like a video game,” stated the actor. “And I think I would say that my strength would be that I’m very present, I’m very focused. My weakness would be that I get in my own head sometimes and kind of overthink things and I think I could just learn to chill out a little bit.”One gets the sense that moviegoers concerned that this sequel may taint the original “Jumanji,” which starred the deceased and much beloved Robin Williams could also chill out. Jonas, however, offered assurance of continuing the legacy of “Jumanji” as opposed to overriding it in any way. The actor cited “Jumanji” as formative in his approach to his character.

“Everyone has a connection to it and to Robin Williams and his legacy, his brilliance. I think that’s why we really approached this with a lot of care and with a real focus on having the moment or moments to acknowledge that, but also finding a way of giving the audience something really fresh.”

Regardless of the film’s reception, however, Jonas highlighted the importance of his own development as an artist over the course of the shoot above all else. “I try not to stress about perception, you know?” stated the actor, suggesting a notable maturity despite his youth, at 25 years old. “I think for me it’s just about taking strides to grow. That’s what drives the conversation.”

All things considered, Jonas looked back on his experience as part of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” fondly: “It was a fun time, a great experience.” He grinned, adding with a chuckle, “I’ll just remember for next time to bring some more bug spray.”.

mens adidas samba ‘Go back to California’ painted on Prius in Portland

adidas court shoes ‘Go back to California’ painted on Prius in Portland

In the latest round of the anti California resentment that’s been a cottage industry for decades in the Pacific Northwest, a Southern California couple over the weekend got a nasty surprise when they awoke Sunday morning in their Portland home. Preston Page and Jessica Faraday found messages including “Go back to California” spray painted across their house and car.

It didn’t take long for the Californians to get an un welcoming welcome the couple had moved up in February because Page got a job in Portland with Adidas.

The graffiti may have stemmed from an earlier incident on Saturday when an impatient driver exchanged words with Page about his California plated Prius blocking the street in front of his house. And, to be sure, the vandalism went far beyond the more subtle forms of resentment experienced by Golden State refugees in the Pacific Northwest and especially The City of Roses under the breath muttering and sideways glances by old timers being priced out of their leafy city by yoga bending, cold brew swigging, hybrid driving elitist Millennials.

Still, the weekend assault was another reminder that as more newcomers arrive in Oregon and Washington not everyone’s thrilled. Animus toward its neighbor to the south has a long and rich legacy in Portland. Just ask Daniel Bullington. Last year, just 18 months after moving up from Southern California, the car salesman decided he had had enough of the bad vibes from longtime locals.

So Bullington did what any self respecting, car selling new father would do: He createda GoFundMe page, vowing to move back to the Golden State if and when he raised $3,500.

Oregon is “a beautiful state,” Bullington wrote at the time, but “Oregonians are not keen on Californians. It’s clearly apparent.”

The photo on the GoFundMe page, which was apparently taken down after Bullington’s wife complained to him about it, resembled the anti California stickers that appeared on For Sale signs around Portland in the summer of 2015. Census Bureau found, 30,500 newcomers were from California a far greater number than the 18,500 who came from Washington, the second largest group. Many native Oregonians see that, and then see the rising cost of living and lack of affordable housing in places like Portland, and the resentment is off and running.

It’s not new. As John Findlay, a history professor at the University of Washington, wrote 20 years ago in a course treatise, “I would argue that the recent anti Californian sentiments perpetuate an ugly form of bigotry that has long characterized Pacific Northwest history.” Former Californians,
mens adidas samba 'Go back to California' painted on Prius in Portland
he wrote, unfairly get a bad rap when they arrive in the region and that antipathy has been simmering for nearly 100 years.

“Perceptions of Californians as the ‘other’ during the 1920s embodied the same kind of bigotry as was expressed by whites against people of color throughout the region’s history,” Findlay wrote. “I would argue that perceptions of Californians during the 1980s and 1990s have continued the trend. Stereotypes of people assumed to be different have consistently offered a way to help define the Pacific Northwest as a region and to provide it with a sense of identity, but they have done so at considerable expense.

“Like any stereotype,” Findlay wrote, “they have grossly misunderstood and dehumanized the people they have been meant to portray.”

People, perhaps, like Preston Page and Jessica Faraday.

But the Pages and Faradays aren’t going away. In fact, some say the recent California drought and other troubling weather patterns could end up fueling a massive northern migration that will make past movements seem relatively tame.

Clifford Mass, a professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington, writes a weather blog and has concluded that climate change, whether its rising seas, water shortages, hurricanes or superstorms, could soon start driving huge masses of Americans from their homes and into Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

“The Northwest,” Mass wrote, “may well become a climate refuge during the upcoming century.”

And that could be just the beginning. Vancouver residents, Slade suggested, might want to think now about heading even further north to the Yukon to escape the approaching marauders from San Francisco and LA.

Forty years ago, then Oregon Gov. Tom McCall famously told refugees from the Golden State: “Visit, but don’t stay.”

This past weekend, someone with a can of spray paint delivered that same message to Page and Faraday.

It didn’t work back then for McCall, who saw the state’s population grow 25 percent during his eight years in office, and it probably won’t work now,

adidas trainer ‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ introduces PvP mode

adidas originals beckenbauer ‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ introduces PvP mode

Fans of Ubisoft’s tactical military shooter “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands” have much to anticipate in an upcoming free update to the game. Over six months after the game’s initial release, Ubisoft has announced a new player versus player, or PvP, game mode in the form of the “Ghost War” downloadable content, or DLC, coming this fall. Staged as a four versus four team battle royale in a best of three format, “Ghost War” capitalizes on the strategy based gameplay that has become a hallmark of the third person shooter franchise.

“Ghost War” features a range of new PvP exclusive maps that showcase a number of unique environments, from an abandoned quarry to a jungle retreat, in the game’s beautifully reconstructed Bolivian landscape. In the upcoming standalone beta test that will run from Sept. 21 25, players even those who do not own the game will be able to access five of the eight maps featured in the DLC, as well as six of the twelve total character classes to be featured in the full version of “Ghost War.”

The most intriguing factor of the DLC’s new gameplay is indeed the twelve unique playable character classes spread across the Assault, Marksman and Support categories. Notably, the Assault category will showcase a Tank class that makes use of the game’s new suppressing fire mechanic, as well as a Pointman class consisting of a heavy gunner. The Marksman category also features strategic gunplay in the form of the Enforcer, while the category’s Sniper class remains a traditional sharpshooter build. The Support category, on the other hand, will allow players to mark enemy targets through the Scout class or call mortar strikes as the Artillery class.

The introduction of a robust class system in “Ghost War” plays to the base game’s tactical team play mannerisms, as “Ghost Recon Wildlands” was originally developed with a four player co op experience in mind. Navigating the rather tight cornered maps featured in the PvP mode is nearly impossible without a specific team strategy placing a Sniper at a height above the base of the map to take out enemies long range and recruiting a Scout to establish the locations of targets is just as important, if not more so, than sending in a Tank or Pointman to do the heavy lifting.

The battle royale gameplay of “Ghost War” certainly appears to be Ubisoft’s response to “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,” the massive online last man standing shooter that, despite still being in early access release on Steam, has managed to dominate the PC platform for the majority of 2017. Like “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,” “Ghost War” focuses on strategy and stealth gameplay over mundane shooting, in order to bring a new element of anticipation to the game. Yet whereas the sprawling maps of “Battlegrounds” allow for baiting targets and camping in wait, the significantly smaller maps of “Ghost War” place players in close proximity to one another, forcing them to run, hide or shoot at a faster pace.

Consistent with the camera mechanisms of “Ghost Recon Wildlands,” the DLC allows for third person movement with first person gunplay that emphasizes tactical shooting, while “Battlegrounds” remains strictly third person or first person alone, depending on the player’s choice. The team reviving abilities in “Ghost War” also force players to strategize guarding fallen enemies to prevent them from being revived, as well as using stealth to revive their own injured teammates, all while avoiding detection by enemy drones in the process. These additional strategies that the player is forced to account for in “Ghost War” add interesting details to the otherwise traditional PvP mode of the tactical shooter.

The four versus four nature of “Ghost War” certainly gives the DLC a fast paced and close combat feel that plays well off of the strategy based shooting that dominates the base game, adding a competitive edge to the original co op system of the main campaign. As additional maps and classes are added beyond the scope of the open beta test, players can certainly expect a challenging but fun PvP mode to supplement the base game.

adidas la Amazon Nixes Connecticut Bids For 2nd Headquarters

adidas football shoes Amazon Nixes Connecticut Bids For 2nd Headquarters

Amazon Inc. has rejected Connecticut’s long shot bid for its second headquarters, announcing Thursday the selection of 20 jurisdictions as finalists in the online retailer’s closely watched North American competition.

Other Connecticut proposals made separately by Bridgeport New Haven, Danbury and Enfield also fell as Amazon said it sorted through 238 plans.

“Getting from 238 to 20 was very tough,” the Seattle company said in a prepared statement. “All the proposals showed tremendous enthusiasm and creativity.”

Catherine Smith, commissioner of the state Department of Economic and Community Development, said a look at the finalists shows Amazon is interested in cities much bigger than what Connecticut offers. “When you’re recruiting 50,000 people, you have to have access to a very large talent pool,” she said.

“Obviously, we’re very disappointed, but not surprised in some ways,” Smith said.

In a statement, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Connecticut “did not have a large enough metropolitan area for this particular proposal.”

New Haven Mayor Toni Harp said that. despite Amazon’s decision. she is willing to match the New Haven area’s “talent pool, market accessibility, quality of life and cultural amenities with literally any other American city.”

New England still has a shot at the prize: Boston was picked as a finalist.

The offer was tantalizing to communities. Amazon promises to spend up to $5 billion developing 8 million square feet of office space for 50,000 workers. Amazon founder and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.

Connecticut pitched Stamford and Hartford East Hartford after paring a list of 17 municipalities hoping to make the final cut. Proposals also were submitted to Amazon by Danbury, New Haven and Bridgeport in a single bid, and Enfield, which pitched the faded Enfield Square Mall as a site for Amazon’s second headquarters.

While many of the cities chosen by Amazon are major population centers, smaller cities such as Columbus, Ohio, are not. Still, with a 2016 population of 860,
adidas la Amazon Nixes Connecticut Bids For 2nd Headquarters
090, Ohio’s capital city is significantly larger than Hartford and East Hartford, with a combined population in 2016 of 174,495, and Stamford, with a population of 129,113.

It’s also home to Ohio State University, a state institution with an enrollment of more than 66,000.

In its proposal to Amazon, Connecticut officials broadened the potential sites for the retailer’s headquarters, with the Hartford East Hartford and Stamford regions each boasting a population of 1 million, a requirement set by Amazon.

The two cities also offer a “deep talent pool,” are close to international airports and have easy access to mass transit and interstate highways, the state said in its proposal.

State officials submitted Connecticut’s proposal in October, touting the state’s rivers and forests, universities, industry, transportation and communities.

It included a video narrated by Malloy, who described Connecticut as a “great place to live, from the shores of Long Island Sound to the hills of Litchfield and everywhere in between.”
