Webb’s first career goal sends Kingsway past Clearview in OT

Posted on

When Zach Webb suddenly found himself on the field Tuesday afternoon in a huge rivalry game, his main priority was to not stand out because of a glaring error.

He did end up finding the spotlight – but for all the right reasons.

Webb scored the game-winning goal just over four minutes into overtime to lift the Kingsway boys soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Clearview in Tri-County Conference Royal Division action.

Chris Spicer also scored an assisted on the game-winner as the Dragons improved to 2-2-1 overall and 2-1-1 in the division. The Pioneers suffered their first loss and fell to 3-1 overall and in the Royal.

“We had a corner kick and I have height so they told me to go up and try to score a goal,” said Webb, a sophomore defender. “But it wasn’t even a header; it was on the ground. I was in the right spot at the right time and I hit it and it went in. That was my first varsity goal and it was a great feeling.”

Spicer, a senior striker, collected the ball off the corner kick and did not hesitate in setting up his young teammate, who was all alone near the top of the box.

“I didn’t have an angle on that shot,” Spicer said. “I knew if I shot it would not have gone in and would have hit off a defender. So I went to my next best option and got it to the kid. I know he hasn’t played much but I had trust in him and he scored a great goal.”

The fact that Webb was even in the game was a surprise. He entered with about 24 minutes remaining in regulation to replace starting outside back Pat Roche, who suffered a high

China’s Mars Probe Tianwen-1 Sends Home Selfies Captured 15 Million Miles From Earth

Posted on

KEY POINTS

  • The CNSA released new selfies of Tianwen-1 captured 15 million miles away from Earth
  • The Mars probe took images of itself using a tiny camera ejected from the spacecraft
  • Tianwen-1 is expected to reach the red planet in February 2021

Talk about a clever way to take self-portraits in space! Tianwen-1 has snapped some selfies while in outer space using a camera ejected from its spacecraft.

While on its way to Mars, Tianwen-1 sent home new images of itself captured 15 million miles away from Earth. They were released by the China National Space Administration earlier this month as part of the country’s national day celebrations.

The small camera the Mars probe used to snap selfies had wide-angle lenses on each side and took one photo every second. It sends the images it takes to Tianwen-1, which would then transmit the pictures to Earth.

One of the many photos snapped by the camera is a close-up of the Tianwen-1 spacecraft that shows its two silver solar arrays and the conical aeroshell containing the mission’s rover. Another photo was taken from farther away and showcases the vastness of outer space surrounding Tianwen-1 as it makes its way to its mission.

The little photoshoot went both ways as the Tianwen-1 also took images of the tiny camera while it was being jettisoned into outer space and leaving the spacecraft.

Tianwen-1 was launched by China on July 23 aboard the Long March 5 rocket from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center on Hainan Island. This mission is considered to be China’s first attempt at reaching and eventually landing on the red planet.

If all goes according to plan, Tianwen-1 should arrive on Mars in February 2021. The rover will land on the red planet’s surface somewhere along Utopia Planitia, a large empty

‘Fox & Friends’ Hosts Look On in Horror as Rudy Giuliani Blurts Out Biden Dementia Conspiracy Theory

Everyone knows that live television isn’t easy. Anything can go wrong—from a faulty connection, a verbal slip-up, or, as was the case on Tuesday morning’s Fox & Friends, Rudy Giuliani bellowing insane conspiracy theories at the nation with no obvious way to stop him.It’s always a risk to allow Giuliani to share his wildly unpredictable stream of consciousness live. The man who was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2001 has long since been reduced to sharing the latest Trumpist conspiracy theories on any cable news channel that has the budget to cover any possible subsequent defamation lawsuits.This time, his F&F hosts looked on with visible horror in their eyes as Giuliani shared his completely baseless belief that Joe Biden is suffering from dementia. If you have the time, it’s worth watching the clip at least three times so you can see each of the hosts panicking in their own unique way as the former New York City mayor rambles on and on.> On Fox & Friends, Rudy Giuliani says Joe Biden “has dementia. There’s no doubt about it. I’ve talked to doctors. … The president’s quite right to say maybe he’s taken adderall.” The hosts get visibly uncomfortable. pic.twitter.com/2Ma7DKNBpS> > — Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) September 29, 2020With a mischievous cackle, Giuliani began: “The man [Biden] has dementia. There’s no doubt about it. I’ve talked to doctors. I’ve had them look at a hundred different tapes of his five years ago and today.” Trying his very best to shut Giuliani down, host Steve Doocy interjected that Biden’s team has said the Democrat has no serious medical problems.Giuliani then made an extraordinary noise at Doocy that can best be
