first_imgMichael Olugbode in MaiduguriThe United Nations has revealed that 6.2 million people are targeted in the crisis ridden North-east with aids by humanitarian organisations in 2019.It also said as a fallout of the crisis, $983 million is needed during the year to provide basic necessities to the victims of the crisis in the Northeast and Lake Chad region. A statement signed yesterday by the Head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Communications, Samantha Newport, lamented that the crisis in the Northeast continued to make many people homeless.According to the statement, “Millions of civilians continue to grapple with extreme adversity across North-east Nigeria and the rest of the Lake Chad region where a recent surge in violence displaced tens of thousands people, exacerbating an already dire humanitarian situation.“Top UN officials are calling for support to respond to a humanitarian crisis that is now in its tenth year. The UN and partners, in support of the governments of Nigeria and of countries hosting Nigerian refugees, simultaneously launched the 2019 to 2021 Humanitarian Response Strategy and the Regional Refugee Response Plan, respectively seeking $848 million and $135 million to continue to provide food, water, shelter and protection to the most vulnerable people in Nigeria and neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger.“The Humanitarian Response Strategy also articulates a collective vision for the next three years of humanitarian action and marks the first time in Nigeria that humanitarian actors are adopting a multi-year approach.”The statement quoted UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, Mr. Edward Kallon, to have said: “We must sustain the efforts made over the recent years to ensure that aids reach those who need them most. The decade-long conflict has brought immense suffering upon children, women, men, their families and communities. We have saved millions of lives, and as we strive to provide immediate response to new and existing humanitarian needs, we must also focus on addressing the causes of such untold suffering.”The statement further said: “Humanitarian organisations in Nigeria are targeting 6.2 million people who are hardest-hit by the crisis in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States in the North-east region. Although aid groups targeted almost the same number of people in 2018, this year’s budget is around $250 million less than the previous year, based on the assessed needs and the realistic capacity to deliver aid. Last year, donors provided 67 per cent of the funds, or $700 million, enabling humanitarians to provide aid to more than 5.5 million people.“UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, seeks funding for the 228,500 Nigerian refugees who have fled into neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger, pointing to a disturbing trend of events.”Also, the UNDP’s Regional Coordinator, Nana Oumou Touré-Sy while lamenting that “the continuing conflict in the Northeast further increases the vulnerability of refugees, IDPs, families and host communities already facing deep development challenges,” warned that “Together with humanitarian partners and governments, UNDP supports the comprehensive response to the refugee crisis by targeting weaknesses and vulnerabilities of refugees and host communities as a way to mitigate the risk of conflict between communities.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgAlso included are wide receiver Terrelle Pryor (83 throw power), who played quarterback for a brief time in the NFL; strong safety Jameill Showers (80 throw power), who was a quarterback in college; wide receiver Braxton Miller (74 throw power), who played QB at Ohio State, and oddly enough, tight end Hayden Hurst.What makes Hurst interesting is that he has 73 throw power — with accuracy ratings of 15, 10 and 6. This is because Hurst didn’t play quarterback at any point, but was a highly scouted pitcher who wound up being drafted by the Pirates. He could throw up to 90 mph as a high school freshman.Just goes to show the people behind the Madden ratings put a lot of research into their work. The player ratings for “Madden NFL 20” are here, as EA Sports released its entire database ahead of the game’s Aug. 2 release date.We looked beyond the top overall players to find some interesting notes buried deep within the player ratings system. It’s worth noting these are just the launch ratings for the game. Every week, EA Sports will update the ratings based on player performance to account for breakout stars, such as Patrick Mahomes last season. We’ll go through and explain all of them.Matt HaackThe Dolphins punter played wide receiver growing up. He earned first-team all-state honors playing receiver in high school and made the change to punter essentially when he went to college.Mitch WishnowskyThe 49ers punter ran a 4.63 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. As a punter at Utah, he showed off his ability to run a few times.Jake BaileySimilar to Wishnowsky, Patriots punter Bailey has shown off his wheels on fake punts in the past.IT’S FAKE PUNT SZN!!!! JAKE BAILEY GOT SOME SPEED! 😤 #PATRIOTSpic.twitter.com/plBXGBcxCD— #34 (@ftbeard_17) April 27, 2019The offensive lineman who can play receiverIf you filter out the positions that would have obvious receiving skills (WR, HB, CB, S, LB, etc.), you get some interesting results on out-of-position players with surprising hands. A few of them are explainable. For instance, J.J. Watt (LE) has 78 catching since he has played on offense a few times and has intercepted passes.Ryan Tannehill (who played wide receiver briefly in college) has 76 catching. Joe Webb, a listed quarterback who has experience playing receiver, is at 72.But the shocking player here is Seahawks right tackle George Fant.He has 70 catching, 66 catch in traffic and 68 spectacular catch. Not bad for an offensive lineman.So where does this come from? How can a 322-pound lineman be such a great receiver? Because last season, he showed off his hands in a game against the Vikings.🚨 GEORGE FANT CATCH & RUN 🚨 pic.twitter.com/DfpJgBjYkt— Seattle Times Sports (@SeaTimesSports) December 11, 2018The surprising thing here, though, is he’s just four catching ratings lower than the wide receiver with the worst catching rating: Isaac Whitney. And fun fact for that, Whitney’s catching is so low because he’s a converted cornerback.The best non-QBs who can play QBThis is somewhat of a misleading title, because a lot of the non-QBs in Madden actually played quarterback at some point in their career.Lions tight end Logan Thomas, for example, has the best overall ratings among the non-QBs. He played quarterback at Virginia Tech, which explains his decent ratings. He could actually swap positions and be an interesting option at quarterback with his speed ratings. But for the most part, these ratings provide an important base for the remainder of the season.MADDEN 20 REVIEW: The good, the bad and the new from EA SportsMost of the ratings make a lot of sense. Tyreek Hill is fast, so he gets 99 speed (the fastest player in the game). Orlando Brown ran the fifth-slowest 40-yard dash ever at the NFL Combine, so he gets the slowest speed (50). But some of the ratings may make you question a few things.We spotted five of those ratings, and will explain all of them below.Odell Beckham Jr. the kickerOdell Beckham, the three-time Pro Bowl receiver, has the second-highest kick power (75) out of all non-kickers. He even has a solid kick accuracy (53), which would make him somewhat useful at the kicker position. Obviously he’s much better as a receiver, but if you want to have some fun you could turn him in to a decent kicker.His ratings are so high in these categories because he actually has shown off his kicking skills in the past. 🙌Another impressive pregame field goal from @obj: pic.twitter.com/BQBe5Gvshw— Sporting News (@sportingnews) November 25, 2018If that didn’t impress you, here he is making a 46-yard kick.We mentioned OBJ was the second-highest non-kicker/punter in the kick power category, so let’s explain the first: linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill. He actually has 85 kick power, which is just two points below an actual punter (Kasey Redfern) and just five points below a kicker (Sam Ficken). So what’s the story here? Grugier-Hill played soccer in high school, where he was an all-conference and second-team all-state punter in high school in Hawaii. In 2017, when Eagles kicker Jake Elliott had to leave a game because of a concussion, the linebacker stepped up and took over kicking duties.Zach Wood: The worst player at 36 overallZach Wood is listed as the Saints’ tight end in Madden, but not that’s not his role in real life. Wood is a long snapper, and unfortunately for this unique position, Madden doesn’t really have a way of rating it. As there’s no snapping category, there’s no official long snapper position. Most of the time, the person snapping the ball in the game is actually an offensive lineman.Seven players are ranked 40 overall or less, and they’re all listed as tight ends (but are actually long snappers). One of those long snappers, Patrick Scales, plays for the Bears — and he couldn’t believe his rating when read aloud to [email protected]’s got our #Madden20 ratings and he’s revealing them to some very interested teammates.PS – @EAMaddenNFL rating adjustor… @The_Dream99 is 👀 for ya. pic.twitter.com/oBa98G6w3t— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) July 15, 2019Please respect the long snapper, Madden.MADDEN: NFL players upset with ratings: ‘Put some respeck on my name’These punters have some serious speedDolphins punter Matt Haack is the fastest kicker/punter in the game with 85 speed, 86 acceleration and 61 agility. Saying he could play running back is a bit of a stretch since he has just 24 elusiveness and 18 trucking, but the point is he’s really fast. And the surprising part is that he’s not the only one.Let’s take a look at some of the punters and kickers with decent speed.
