Patriots’ QB Tom Brady: ‘I still have more to prove’

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPhoto by Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — As New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady begins to plan out his plans for the future, he posted to Instagram on Wednesday indicating he might want to return to the field for the 2020 season.“In both life and football, failure is inevitable,” Brady wrote. “You don’t always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.”The 42-year-old Brady will become a free agent for the first time in his career this March. ESPN notes that the Patriots can not assign Brady the franchise tag, giving the quarterback more leverage to dictate his plans.“II wish every season ended with a win, but that’s not the nature of sports (or life),” Brady continued. “Nobody plays to lose. But the reward for working hard is just that, the work!!”“I have been blessed to find a career I love, teammates who go to battle with me, an organization that believes in me, and fans who have been behind us every step of the way.”After New England’s first-round playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Brady had told reporters that it was “probably unlikely” that he would retire. His latest social media post expands on that, insisting that he wants to learn from failure, and, he says “I still have more to prove.”Patriots owner Robert Kraft told NBC Sports this week that he strongly hopes Brady either returns to the only team he’s every played for, or retires. Meanwhile, head coach Bill Belichick told reporters on Sunday that the organization would take the time to determine how they view the future of all of their free agents, Brady included. Belichick additionally referred to Brady as an “iconic figure in this organization.”It’s unclear what contract demands Brady would make, should he choose to return. He earned $23 million in 2019, less than 12 other quarterbacksThere has been some speculation that Brady could look to sign with the Tennessee Titans to be reunited with their head coach, and his former Patriots teammate Mike Vrabel. Some have also wondered whether Brady would return to his California roots and sign with the Los Angeles Chargers.  Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

first_img ExxonMobil’s Baton Rouge Refinery in Louisiana. (Credit: WClarke/Wikipedia.org) Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards revealed that oil and gas major ExxonMobil is mulling to invest over $240m at its Baton Rouge Refinery in the US state.The investment is planned to be used by the company for boosting the processing capability of the refinery, enhance flexibility for coping up with market demand, and advance overall competitiveness of the site.As part of the suite of projects, ExxonMobil also plans to install technology at the Baton Rouge Refinery for reducing its volatile organic compound emissions by 10%, said the Louisiana Governor.The planned projects are subject to final engineering, design and investment decisions with a decision to proceed to be made by the company next year.Governor Edwards said that the proposed projects at the oil refinery will retain 1,300 existing roles, while supporting over 600 construction jobs on-site over a period of three years.ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Refinery plant manager Gloria Moncada said: “This suite of projects positions our site for future investment at our refinery and chemical plants in Baton Rouge. We look forward to working with Gov. Edwards and our local community stakeholders in partnership as we move toward a final decision.”Commissioned in 1909, the Baton Rouge oil refinery is an integrated refining and petrochemical complex that produces fuels, lubricants, and wax products for customers across the world.The petrochemical complex features a refinery, plastics plant, resins plant, chemical plant, polyolefins plant, and Port Allen lubricants plant. The facilities have a combined annual production of over 3.6 billion gallons of gasoline along with billions of pounds of petrochemical products.Last year, ExxonMobil began construction on a new polypropylene plant at the petrochemical complex with an investment of over $500m. The project, which is expected to be commissioned in 2021, will double the capacity of the Baton Rouge Polyolefins Plant.Governor Edwards said: “ExxonMobil has operated in Baton Rouge for more than 110 years and has provided high-quality jobs for decades at the integrated refinery and chemical plant complex.“The 2019 announcement of the company’s decision to progress the Baton Rouge polypropylene project, combined with this potential investment, demonstrates that ExxonMobil has confidence in the future of Louisiana and in our outstanding workforce. Louisiana looks forward to working with ExxonMobil to make this investment happen.” The US oil and gas firm is planning to implement a suite of projects at the oil refinery with a decision to proceed to be taken in 2021last_img read more

Time warp home sells before going to auction

first_imgThe home at 14 Dodds St, Margate sold before auction.A CHARACTER cottage on two lots in Margate went under contract the evening before it was due to be auctioned. The property at 14 Dodds St sold for $601,250. Marketing agents Loren Mulholland and Jonathan Gordon said the property attracted a high level of interest. “More than 50 people inspected the home in just a few weeks and we had nine contracts submitted,” Ms Mulholland said. Mr Gordon said the home was a well-maintained time capsule.“The vendors were only the second owners of the property and they kept is largely untouched to keep the character,” he said. “That, combined with the block being on two lots, created quite a rare opportunity for the area.”More from newsLand grab sees 12 Sandstone Lakes homesites sell in a week21 Jun 2020Tropical haven walking distance from the surf9 Oct 2019The home had a retro look.Mr Gordon said the home was sold to an interstate investor who planned to modernise it and hold on to it for the time being. Ms Mulholland said the Margate market was proving equally popular with owner-occupiers and investors, though stock was low. “Demand is far outweighing supply and listings are few and far between,” she said. “We think it is because 50-60 per cent of people in the area are investors and, with low interest rates, it makes more sense for them to hold on to property rather than have money in the bank.” Mr Gordon said the number of buyers looking in and around Margate was on the up. “A lot of people are drawn to the area,” he said. “We are being inundated with inquiries on properties but we can’t meet demand.”last_img read more
