After suffering a broken collarbone against Michigan State, Joel Stave is expected to miss the rest of the season.[/media-credit]Wisconsin starting quarterback Joel Stave will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his left collarbone against Michigan State Saturday, according to a report from Jake Zimmermann at WKOW. Stave, a redshirt freshman, went down less than 10 seconds into the third quarter when 6-foot-7, 278-pound Michigan State defensive end William Gholston sacked the Badgers’ quarterback with a powerful hit that drove him into the ground. Stave briefly regained his footing before falling to his knees, when the UW medical staff came onto the field to attend to him. He remained on the field for several minutes, wincing in pain as the medical staff took him to the locker room for further evaluation. Stave later reappeared on the sideline but did not re-enter the game. He had been remarkably effective against the Spartans’ defense up to that point, completing nine of his 11 passing attempts for 127 yards and a touchdown pass to tight end Jacob Pedersen. Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said he didn’t “know anything further on Joel,” aside from the fact that it was a left shoulder injury, postgame. However, Zimmermann says he spoke with Stave’s family Saturday night. The Greenfield, Wis., native saw his first playing time in the second half against Utah State – the Badgers’ third game of the season – and earned his first career start against UTEP the following week. He has been the starter since and in the seven games he has appeared in this year, Stave has proven to be an efficient signal-caller with 1,104 passing yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions on the year. Zimmermann is also reporting Stave’s injury will not require surgery and that this is the third time he has broken his collarbone. With Stave out, Danny O’Brien will likely take over for the Badgers under center. O’Brien, a redshirt junior who transferred to Wisconsin from Maryland in the offseason, began the year as the starting quarterback before struggling through the first three games of the year, when Bielema benched him in favor of Stave. In the second half Saturday, O’Brien looked shaky at times behind a leaky offensive line, completing five of his 11 passing attempts for 44 yards. The Spartans also sacked O’Brien three times in the final 30 minutes. The 2010 ACC Freshman of the Year threw for 454 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in his 10 quarters of play as UW’s starting quarterback.

For the next few weeks the City of Lauderhill will be hosting a Caribbean Culinary Museum & Theater exhibit at the Lauderhill Historical Museum through a partnership with Island Syndicate. The exhibit opened last week with a successful grand opening . Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the traveling exhibit of artifacts carefully selected from several Caribbean islands.The various display of aspects of Caribbean culinary culture brought patrons back in time to a rich history of artifacts, cooking utensils and herbs used to prepare food decades ago. The collection was assembled from countries like the Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and other islands.Attendees are also able to watch a theatrical presentation representing various cultural backgrounds including Haiti, Cuba, and Jamaica as actors on-screen give an aspiring story on the food history exhibited in the museum. The exhibit has been described as a walk down memory lane. For those who have never experienced the items displayed, the exhibit offers a rich education and stimulating learning environment. The culinary exhibit is not just for cooks or chefs, but for anyone who has eaten, prepared a meal, or just walked through a kitchen. The Caribbean Culinary Museum and Theater Exhibit is the first of its kind in South Florida and Lauderhill has become the flagship for this traveling presentation.“Seeing the Dutch pot and the cast iron brought back memories of home and my childhood. When I was young, my grandmother used those same pieces to stir up my family a delicious meal. What a great way to reminisce on the past,” said David Muir, Island Syndicate President. He continues, “Lauderhill Commissioner Howard Berger was a big part of this display coming to Lauderhill. As a big supporter of all cultural efforts in his City, he believed food has a way of bringing all people together – connecting us.”The Lauderhill Historical Museum is located at 1080 NW 47th Avenue, Lauderhill, FL 33313. The exhibition is only available for limited time, running from Thursday, February 28, 2019 to Saturday, March 16, 2019.

Roared on by the home fans, Porto started brightly and Brazilian midfielder Otavio was denied an early goal by a last-ditch tackle from Lovren.But it didn’t take Liverpool long to grow into the game, as left-back Andrew Robertson fired over on his Champions League debut and Ivan Marcano’s brave block prevented Firmino from heading in.But the five-time European champions were gifted the lead in the 25th minute as Porto goalkeeper Jose Sa, who has replaced former Real Madrid great Iker Casillas this season, allowed Mane’s tame strike to squirm underneath his body and into the net.Mane has been overshadowed so far this term by the blistering performances of Firmino and Salah, but the Senegalese forward’s first goal in six games was his fourth in the Champions League.– Salah’s delightful skill –Liverpool took total control of the tie just four minutes later as Salah scored in style.James Milner’s strike crashed into the post, but the Egyptian star was on hand to flick the ball over the onrushing Sa with a magnificent piece of skill and slot into the net.The visitors were utterly dominant, but Tiquinho Soares, playing in place of the injured Vincent Aboubakar, fired narrowly wide for Porto on the stroke of half-time.Porto had plenty of the ball but were always vulnerable to Liverpool’s waves of rapid counter-attacks, and Mane made it three shortly after the restart.The away side cut the Portuguese league leaders to shreds with a series of first-time flicks and passes, and after Firmino was denied by Sa, Mane was on hand to tap in the rebound.The visitors’ relentless pressure meant another goal was almost inevitable, and it arrived when Milner picked out Firmino from a posse of unmarked Liverpool shirts in the centre to slot home his seventh Champions League goal of the campaign.The English outfit still weren’t finished, though, as Mane’s long-range effort flew past Sa with five minutes remaining to round off the procession in fine fashion. Share on: WhatsApp Porto, Portugal | AFP | Sadio Mane scored a brilliant treble as Liverpool romped to a 5-0 thrashing of Porto at the Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday to march towards the Champions League quarter-finals.Mane fired the away side ahead in the first leg of the last-16 clash, before Mohamed Salah’s audacious finish for his 30th goal of the season quickly made it two.The Senegalese forward slotted in his second as Liverpool completely outclassed their opponents, with Roberto Firmino adding his name to the scoresheet with 20 minutes to play, before Mane’s searing strike completed his first European hat-trick.“It was important to play as a team and we did, we played great football from the beginning,” Mane told BT Sport.“We created so many chances and we scored five. It was well deserved.”Playing in the last 16 of the competition for the first time in nine years, Liverpool are now all but certain to reach the quarter-finals ahead of the second leg at Anfield on March 6.Jurgen Klopp’s men had scored 23 goals in the group stage and continued that scintillating form in Portugal to become the top-scorers in this season’s competition, while the defensive frailties that have plagued them at times this season never resurfaced as Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk put in accomplished displays at the back.“I saw a lot of fantastic performances tonight. The result is only possible if they are all spot on,” said Klopp.“Of course, Sadio is man of the match, three fantastic goals, but they all did well and that is the only way to be successful.”Sergio Conceicao’s deflated Porto will now turn their attentions back to domestic matters, where they hold a two-point lead in the league and are in the Cup semi-finals.
