Un 10e championnat de division de suite pour les Patriots




Les Pats, qui avaient perdu leurs deux derniers matchs, ont maintenant un dossier de 10 gains en 15 matchs.

Les hommes de Bill Belichick sont invaincus dans leurs sept rencontres à domicile cette saison.

Le quart-arrière Tom Brady a connu un après-midi plutôt modeste avec une seule passe de touché et deux interceptions. Il a conclu le match avec à peine 126 verges aériennes.

Brady a tout de même passé le cap des 4000 verges par la passe pour la 10e fois de sa carrière. Seuls Peyton Manning, Drew Brees et Philip Rivers ont préalablement réalisé cet exploit.

Tampa Bay 20 Dallas 27

Les Cowboys ont remporté le titre de la Division est de l’Association nationale en renversant les Buccaneers de Tampa Bay 27 à 20.

La formation texane (9-6) accède ainsi aux séries pour la deuxième fois en trois ans.

Les Bucs (5-10) ont dominé avec 383 verges combinées contre seulement 232 pour les favoris de la foule, mais le quart Jameis Winston s’est rendu coupable de deux échappés dont l’un après un sac de Randy Gregory qui a été retourné sur 69 verges pour un touché par Jaylon Smith.

Houston 30 Philadelphie 32

Les Texans de Houston (10-5) devront quant à eux patienter jusqu’à la semaine prochaine pour s’assurer du titre de leur division.

Ils se sont inclinés au compte de 32-30 à Philadelphie alors que Jake Elliott a réussi un placement de 35 verges dans les toutes dernières secondes du quatrième quart.

À son deuxième départ de la saison, Nick Foles a connu un match du tonnerre avec 471 verges par la passe et quatre touchés.

Les Eagles, champions en titre du Super Bowl, ont conservé de minces espoirs de participer aux éliminatoires, eux qui revendiquent 8 victoires en 15 rencontres.

Jacksonville 17 Miami 7

Les Dolphins (7-8) ont été éliminés devant leurs partisans en subissant un échec de 17-7 face aux Jaguars de Jacksonville.

Ils ont été exclus des séries pour la 15e fois en 17 saisons.

Les Jaguars (5-10) enregistraient quant à eux un deuxième gain seulement à leur 11 dernières sorties.

Giants de NY 27 Indianapolis 28

Les Colts d’Indianapolis ont vaincu les Giants de New York 28-27 alors qu’Andrew Luck a uni ses efforts à Chester Rogers pour une passe de touché d’une verge avec 55 secondes au cadran.

Il s’agissait d’un huitième triomphe en neuf matchs pour les Colts (9-6), qui pourraient gagner le championnat de leur division s’ils battent les Titans du Tennessee la semaine prochaine et que Houston s’incline devant Jacksonville.

Cincinnati 18 Cleveland 26

Les Browns de Cleveland ont offert un beau cadeau de Noël à leurs partisans en défaisant les Bengals de Cincinnati 26-18.

Ce faisant, les Browns balayaient la série de l’Ohio pour la première fois depuis 2002.

Avec leur cinquième gain en six matchs, ils ont maintenant une fiche de 7-7-1. Cleveland n’avait pas gagné autant de matchs depuis 2007. Ils ne seront toutefois pas des séries.

Baker Mayfield a réussi trois passes de touché et en compte maintenant 24 à sa fiche, deux de moins que le record pour un quart recrue que détiennent conjointement Peyton Manning et Russell Wilson.

Ottawa performer leapfrogs from gymnastics to Broadway to TV




A new AppleTV+ series set in a magical town that’s stuck in a neverending 1940s musical includes a pair of Ottawa siblings in the cast. 

Warren Yang and his sister, Ericka Hunter, play two of the singing, dancing residents of the village portrayed in Schmigadoon!, a small-screen series that takes its cues from classic musicals like Brigadoon, Wizard of Oz and Sound of Music, and skewers them with the offbeat comedic mastery of Saturday Night Live. 

In fact, you’ll recognize many of the names from SNL, starting with executive producer Lorne Michaels, creator of the late-night, live-comedy sketch show. Schmigadoon! also stars SNL cast member Cecily Strong and comedian Keegan-Michael Key, who hosted SNL in May. They play a New York couple who get lost on a hike and stumble into a strange town where everyone sings and dances. 

For Yang, a relative newcomer to show-biz, the series marks his television debut. For Hunter, the younger of his two older sisters, it’s the latest in a career path that began with dance lessons as a child more than 30 years ago. She attended Canterbury High School, Ottawa’s arts-focused secondary school. 

“Her dream was always to perform,” said Yang, 34, in an interview. “But that was never the path I thought was an option for me.” 

While his sister studied dance, Yang did gymnastics. He was an elite gymnast throughout his youth, ultimately leaving Merivale High School at 16 to train in Montreal, finishing high school through correspondence courses. He was a member of the Canadian National Team and received a scholarship to study at Penn State, majoring in marketing. 

A few years after graduation, Yang was working at an advertising agency in Toronto when he got a call from a Manhattan number. To his astonishment, they asked if he would be interested in auditioning for a Broadway revival of Miss Saigon.

COVID-19: uOttawa to require vaccination for students living in residence




Vaccination will be mandatory for students who want to live in residence at the University of Ottawa this year, with proof of vaccination and at least one dose required before move-in, or within two weeks of doing so if they can’t secure a shot before arriving.

Those who can’t receive a vaccine for “health-related reasons or other grounds protected under the Ontario Human Rights Code” will be able to submit a request for accommodation through the university’s housing portal, according to information on the university’s website.

Students with one dose living in residence will also have to receive their second dose “within the timeframe recommended by Ottawa Public Health.”

People who haven’t been granted an exemption and don’t get vaccinated or submit proof of having done so by the deadlines set out by the school will have their residence agreements terminated, uOttawa warns.

“Medical and health professionals are clear that vaccination is the most (effective) means of protecting people and those around them,” reads a statement provided to this newspaper by uOttawa’s director of strategic communications, Patrick Charette.

Article content

“It is precisely for this reason that the University of Ottawa is requiring all students living in residence for the 2021-2022 academic year to be fully vaccinated. The University recognizes that some students may require accommodations for a variety of reasons and will be treating exceptions appropriately.”

Faculty, staff and students are also strongly encouraged to get vaccinated, the statement notes.

“Ensuring a high vaccine coverage in all communities is critical to ensuring an ongoing decline in cases and ending the pandemic. This will be especially important with the return of students to post-secondary institutions in our region in the fall of 2021.”

Neither Carleton University nor Algonquin College is currently mandating vaccination for students living in residence, according to the websites for both schools. But uOttawa isn’t alone in its policy – Western University, Trent University, Durham College and Fanshawe College have all implemented similar requirements. Seneca College, in the GTA, is going even further, making vaccination mandatory for students and staff to come to campus, in-person, for the fall term.
