(BUSINESS WIRE)– NIKE, Inc. (NYSE: NKE) and Arsene Wenger, Manager of Arsenal FC, today launch “The Chance,” a global search for talented footballers to join the Nike Academy, a high performance training program, supported by the Premier League in England.

The Nike Academy offers non-contract players unattached to professional clubs a chance to enter the professional game through world-class coaching and games against elite academies and professional reserve teams. Since the academy’s start in 2009, eight players in the UK have received professional contracts.

“The Chance” marks the next stage of Nike’s “Write the Future” campaign, where some of the world’s best players including Ronaldo, Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney feature in a short film about iconic game moments where headlines are written from a single pass, or one strike can bring a nation eternal happiness, while bringing others to their knees.

Players can register for “The Chance” at nikefootball.com, where they can use digital assets to create custom campaign materials that build on the inspiration behind “Write the Future.” To support their bid, prospects can insert their image into a video that shows what their future might look like if they won “The Chance” complete with celebrity style pop culture moments. Entrants will also create a Facebook fan page to generate awareness and campaign support to get noticed.

The best 100 players from around the world are selected by Nike through Nike Elite Training events, the Nike City Cup, happening in 32 cities, as well as exposure through the digital platform. They will then be invited to a final trial in England, where they will compete for one of eight international places in the Nike Academy. These eight will have all their expenses paid to live in the UK for a year starting in July 2011 and be a full-time member of the Nike Academy.

“Providing young players from around the world with the opportunity of elite coaching and state-of-the-art facilities to reach their full potential is a very powerful proposition,” said Arsene Wenger, Manager of Arsenal FC, in launching “The Chance” from the Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto, which provides high performance training facilities and HIV / AIDS Life Skills for the local community. “I look forward to actively participating in the scouting and review of exciting young players as they compete in ‘The Chance.’”

As members of the Nike Academy, players become full-time participants at a residential training centre in England with access to elite coaches, nutritionists, psychologists and fitness conditioners, along with world class facilities to perform at the highest level.

“Nike is passionate about giving footballers insider access to the best coaching and training in the world to improve their game and fulfill their potential,” said Trevor Edwards, VP of Global Brand & Category Management. “‘The Chance’ is a unique opportunity for players to prove themselves on the global stage, take their game to the next level and even get a shot at a professional contract.”

“The Nike Academy has a number of success stories with players that have entered the professional game, helped by the superb environment that has been created,” said Ged Roddy, Director of Youth at the Premier League. “’The Chance’ is a great opportunity to identify talented young players to show their skills, get noticed and win a place at the academy.”

For more information or to register for “The Chance,” visit nikefootball.com. Players can register from 6pm GMT today.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers apprehended a convicted child molester who was attempting to enter the U.S. by intermingling with the legitimate traveling public.

On June 12, at about 5:30 p.m., CBP officers were screening traffic coming from Mexico, when the officers became suspicious of a man who was operating a motorcycle. The man, who was accompanied by a woman, was identified as 38-year-old Jesus Castillo Esquer, a registered sex offender for child molestation.

Further investigation revealed that the man had confirmed warrants for indecency with a child and sexual contact, with a $100,000 bond, and aggravated sexual assault with a child, with a $50,000 bond. Felony indictments are pending upon the subject’s arrival in Montgomery County, Texas. The woman accompanying the man was identified as his 52-year-old wife. The woman had no pending issues and was allowed to proceed.

“Our endeavor here at the border carries a lot of responsibility,” said Michael Humphries, area port director for the Douglas-Naco ports of entry. “We truly are the nation’s first line of defense. This is just one example of the many threats that face our nation. As guardians of our nation, Customs and Border Protection remains committed in maintaining a high state of vigilance.”

CBP officers apprehended the man and released him to the custody of the Douglas Police Department, pending extradition to Montgomery County.

A criminal complaint is simply the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity and raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

 

Yesterday, in two separate incidents in San Diego County, U.S. Border Patrol agents seized more than 500 pounds of marijuana and arrested four men for suspected drug smuggling.
One drug seizure occurred at about 10:45 a.m., after agents stopped the driver of a Chevrolet Suburban about a quarter mile north of the Murrieta Border Patrol Checkpoint on Interstate 15. During the stop, agents observed several large plastic bags in the back of the vehicle. Agents inspected the contents and discovered 38 bundles of marijuana. A digital weight scale was also inside the vehicle. The marijuana had a total weight of 306 pounds and an estimated street value of $153,200. The driver, a 34-year-old male, U.S. citizen, was arrested for suspected drug smuggling and turned over to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department along with the drugs.
A second drug seizure occurred at about 1:30 a.m., when Border Patrol agents on patrol observed three men carrying large backpacks in Campo, Calif. Agents encountered the men, later identified as Mexican nationals, and determined that the backpacks contained 10 bundles of marijuana. The marijuana had a total weight of nearly 200 pounds and an estimated street value of $100,000. The three men were arrested and are being held in federal custody pending drug smuggling charges.
While U.S. Border Patrol agents in San Diego Sector maintain a strong enforcement posture on the immediate border to detect and interdict all potential cross-border threats, a layered enforcement posture is also maintained along major routes of egress through coordinated enforcement operations and interior checkpoints.

 

CALEXICO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT CLOSES SWIMMING POOL AND HALTS ALL SUMMER SWIMMING PROGRAMS DUE TO EXTENSIVE DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE 7.2 EARTHQUAKE OF APRIL 4, 2010.

CALEXICO – The Calexico Unified School District swimming pool and adjacent building will be closed for the remainder of the summer due to extensive damage that resulted from the 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake of April 4, 2010 announced Calexico Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Christina Luna.
“Calexico Unified School District continues to be vigilante about the safety and security of all of our structures, especially during the recurring aftershocks that continue to affect the rebuilding of our sites” stated Dr. Luna. Adding to the safety component is the damage to the building. After inspections were conducted by state engineers, the main building and shower/changing rooms were red tagged due to extensive damages to the building structure, pool and deck. The entire area was deemed unsafe for reentry and occupancy. Extensive cracks are evident throughout the swimming pool, the deck and adjacent building. The pool is leaking from 1 to 1.5 inches of water on a daily basis. With the structure of the pool compromised, CUSD cannot assure that the pool is safe for public use. CUSD continues to work with engineers to determine whether both the building and pool should be repaired or demolished and if replacement is possible or if relocation will be necessary. “The CUSD swimming pool has served the Calexico community for many years and with the summer weather upon us, it is definitely going to be a challenge for our community to find substitute recreational activities” stated Dr. Luna. Many swimming pools only last up to ten years, our pool was built in 1956, refurbished in 1984 and has been well cared for since then. Unfortunately we could not foresee the destruction that the 7.2 earthquake caused.
“We realize the pool closure will be an inconvenience, however students and community safety are the District’s main concern. During the swimming pool closure, we suggest that you enroll your students in the Kiki Camarena Public Library Summer Reading program. For swimming lessons and other aquatic programs , you can contact the Imperial School District, The Brawley Lions Center, the NAF (Naval Air
Facility) Base, and Jacques n’ and Jills Health Club.
