NFL security chief: No threats to Super Bowl have surfaced

By Jeff Martin, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — The National Football League is not aware of any security threats against the Super Bowl, now four days away, the league's top security officer said Wednesday. "We have no credible or specific threats that have been brought to our attention," NFL Chief Security Officer Cathy Lanier said. She spoke at a news conference in host city Atlanta alongside the nation's Homeland Security secretary as well as state and local law officers. Outside, low-flying helicopters swooped over Atlanta's downtown and police patrolled the streets on horseback, bicycles and on foot. On the ground, trained police canines sniffed visitors to some hotels and other buildings. The New England Patriots face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53 on Sunday. Despite the recently ended partial government shutdown, Homeland Security employees are committed to keeping the Super Bowl secure, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said. "Protecting an event such as the Super Bowl is no easy task," Nielsen said. "I want to make clear that despite last month's lapse in funding, DHS employees are and have been committed to keeping our nation and Super Bowl 53 secure," she added. More than 600 employees from her agency will be protecting the city, she said. U.S. Secret Service officers and members of the Coast Guard also will be on the ground and joining local and state police and other agencies, Nielsen said. "We've conducted more than 100 different physical and cybersecurity assessments and conducted outreach activities ... so that any vulnerabilities can be addressed before they are exploited," Nielsen said. "Part of what we bring to bear is our expertise in the tactics and techniques that potential adversaries could bring against events such as these in crowded places." The U.S. Department of Energy advised residents not to be alarmed by low-flying choppers equipped with radiation-sensing technology. The aim is to measure naturally occurring radiation to establish baseline levels — a routine step in securing major events, the agency said. Air space in the area of Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be restricted and drones will not be allowed to fly. City police officers are working 12-hour shifts and aim to be highly visible, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields said. For local police, the greatest concerns in recent days have been the weather and traffic, and weather conditions are expected to improve in the days before the Super Bowl. Shields urged motorists to use public transportation, which would keep some cars off the streets. "If you must drive, please, please, please secure any valuables and your firearms prior to coming," Shields said. She said police are relying on the public to call 911 if anything seems suspicious. "We just really, really want to emphasize, if people see something that is strange, a little off, or gives them any pause to call 911 immediately," Shields said. "Let us sort through it.".....»»

Cargo Movers collect fifth straight win

BACOOR CITY --- F2 Logistics banked on its collective effort to overcome a hard-fighting Cignal squad, 25-22, 23-25, 25-14, 25-17, and stretch its winning streak in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Bacoor Strike Gym here. Ara Galang and Majoy Baron led the attack of the Cargo Movers, who annexed its fifth straight win. Smart made short work of Foton, 25-21, 25-19, 25-18, to notch its first back-to-back wins. Despite missing setter Jasmine Nabor and middle blockers Celine Domingo and Czarina Carandang due to their respective academic commitments, the troika of Aiko Urdas, Grethcel Soltones and Jerrili Malabanan powered the Giga Hitters to earn their second win in the second round to improve to 4-5. Urdas unleashed 18 points off 16 kills and a pair of service aces. Soltones, who struggled with five points in their past game against Sta. Lucia, had 13 hits and as many as excellent receptions while Malabanan added 12 markers and had 10 digs. Galang dropped 18 points built on 16 spikes and a pair of aces laced with 10 excellent receptions while Baron unloaded eight kills, five blocks and three aces for 16 points as F2 Logistics improved to 7-2 win-loss record to claim the solo second spot. Cha Cruz-Behag was also instrumental with 12 points and 23 digs while Aby Maraño added 10 markers for F2 Logistics, which finished the job in just one hour and 36 minutes. Fajardo made 45 excellent sets as their team continued to miss Kianna Dy for the second straight game due to knee soreness and the wake of her grandmother in Davao. “I’m happy even we lost the second set because somehow I saw the determination of my players to win the game,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus said. “Even we’re not complete, they were composed.” The Cargo Movers fought back from 17-24 deficit in the second set and trimmed it down to 23-24. But Mylene Paat nailed a kill to end the frame and level the match to one-set apiece before the Cargo Movers recovered their groove en route to the victory. Cignal managed to keep F2 Logistics within striking distance in all departments as it had a 12-10 advantage in blocking, trailed only three in attacking, 42-45 and had 10 team aces each. The Cargo Movers also played more fluid with only 14 errors while the HD Spikers committed 33 miscues. Paat had 18 points while Rachel Anne Daquis delivered 15 hits, including 15 excellent receptions, for the HD Spikers, who dropped to a 4-5 card......»»
