As the leaves begin to change, so do the big-name artists on the walls of Twin Cities art institutions: Vincent Van Gogh and David Hockney are on their way out; Sandro Botticelli is headed into town.

And in the meantime, in St. Paul spots like the Minnesota Museum of American Art, the Friedli Gallery, and studios and churches across the city during October’s St. Paul Art Crawl, local artists take the spotlight. Through painting, ceramics, textile and more, they explore city life and cultural change.

Here are some of the many exhibitions coming up in galleries, studios, and museums around town this season.

Quarterback Zach Wilson ‘not flinching’, rallies New York Jets to early season win

Quarterback Zach Wilson 'Not Flinching', Rallies New York Jets To Early Season Win
google news

PITTSBURGH — Quarterback Zach Wilson’s season debut included a historic touchdown catch, a two-quarter fall that nearly doomed the New York Jets and the biggest fourth-quarter comeback of his young career.

“It was an ugly win, but it was one of the most fun I’ve had playing football,” Wilson said Sunday after a 24-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Acrisure Stadium.

It was a wild game.

The Jets led by 10 points in the first quarter and trailed by 10 in the fourth, but Wilson rallied them with touchdowns for 81 and 65 yards on their final two possessions to earn their second win from behind on the road. Wilson returned to huddle after a preseason knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery on Aug. 16. With just three days of full practice, he was predictably rusty (18 for 36, 252 yards, two interceptions), but he made several clutch throws in the fourth quarter. Sunday’s game was the first time since 1988 that the Jets led by 10 points, trailed by 10 and won the game, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.

Wilson was nearly flawless in the fourth, completing 10 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown — a 5-yard rush to wide receiver Corey Davis with 7:31 remaining.

“The young man doesn’t flinch,” coach Robert Saleh said.

Wilson, drafted second overall in 2021, showed tenacity and resilience in the final minutes. He’s completed his last seven passes, including 5-on-5 for 57 yards on the final drive. The Jets took over on Michael Carter II’s interception with 3:34 remaining and marched to Breece Hall’s 2-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left.

Wilson said he didn’t think about his surgically repaired knee during the game. He was under heavy duress by a makeshift line. He’s only been sacked once, but he’s been hit six times and pressured 14 times, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.

“I thought it was probably the most comfortable I’ve ever felt from a pre-game perspective before a game,” said Wilson, who went 3-10 as a starter during a tough rookie year.

Wilson proved he could catch a pass. In the second quarter, he scored on the Jets’ version of the “Philly Special,” a dazzling play in which he handed it to wide receiver Garrett Wilson, who threw it to receiver Braxton Berrios, who threw a pass from 2 yards. to a wide-open Wilson.

He became the first quarterback in Jets history to score a touchdown reception and the first to catch a pass since Geno Smith in 2013. Wilson celebrated with a “Griddy” dance in the end zone.

“It’s pretty cool,” he said of his touchdown, joking, “I have the best hands on the team.”

The Jets looked in control with a 10-0 lead, but Wilson threw two interceptions (one from tight end Tyler Conklin) as the Jets squandered chances to put the game away. Wilsons said “there was frustration, but it was the right frustration”. The defense made four interceptions, including two by safety Lamarcus Joyner, to keep the Jets in the game. It gave Wilson two big possessions at the end.

“He never stopped. He never turned it off. You can tell he just believes in himself. He may not have played a perfect game, but it was his first game and everything,” Hall said of Wilson.

Wilson, showing no ill effects from his knee surgery, escaped a handful of sacks thanks to his mobility. He said he was “in a good position” with his knee, thanking the coaching staff for preparing him. He was on the run because his offensive line suffered another key injury, as rookie right tackle Max Mitchell (knee) was knocked out in the second quarter — the Jets’ fourth tackle to be injured since training camp.

The day started with a surprise move, with right guard Alijah Vera-Tucker starting at left tackle. At halftime, only two of the five Week 1 starters were in their original positions – center Connor McGovern and left guard Laken Tomlinson. Led by Wilson, the Jets (2-2) overcame a lot of adversity.

“I think he played a good game for his first game back,” Saleh said.

The Steelers (1-3) had a hard time swallowing. Said safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, “It’s very frustrating. It’s frustrating to lose to people you know are better than, more talented than.”

Fire Damages Abandoned Apartment In Grant Hill Prompts Arson Investigation
google news

Firefighters launched an arson investigation on Sunday after a blaze damaged an abandoned apartment building in Grant Hill, the third fire at the property in less than a week, authorities said.

The fires caused at least $470,000 in damage, San Diego Police Sgt. Rick Pechin of the Metro Arson Strike Team.

The property, located on K Street near 38th Street, has been frequented by squatters “for quite some time,” Pechin said.

The property includes a front house that was destroyed by a fire early Saturday.

Around 11:45 a.m. Sunday, San Diego police officers were driving down an alley that borders the building when they noticed smoke billowing from the two-story structure.

Pechin said the fire started in an upstairs unit and caused damage estimated at $120,000. No one was hurt.

The fire was the third in recent days. Few details were available on the first fire, which occurred on Wednesday. Pechin said it was an outdoor fire in front of the front house which caused “fairly minor” damage.

The second fire broke out shortly after 4 a.m. Saturday. The fire engulfed the house, which was boarded up.

When firefighters arrived, no one was inside. The estimated damage from this fire was $350,000.

Pechin declined to comment on the cause of the fires, citing ongoing investigations. “However, we treat them as arson,” he said.

Sacheen Littlefeather, the Native American actress and activist who turned down Marlon Brando’s Best Actor Oscar in 1973, has died, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Sunday night. She was 75 years old.

The Academy announcement Littlefeather’s death on his Twitter account. No cause of death was immediately given, but several news outlets reported that Littlefeather suffered from breast cancer.

Born Marie Louise Cruz on November 14, 1946, in Salinas, California, Littlefeather then changed her name in her twenties as she explored her Native American heritage and became an activist.

On March 27, 1973, she delivered one of the most dramatic moments in Oscar history. As Brando’s name read for winning Best Actor for his role in The GodfatherLittlefeather took the stage wearing loafers and a buckskin dress to politely offer Brando’s regret for turning down the award due to Hollywood’s treatment and portrayal of Native Americans.

His speech to refuse the Oscar on behalf of Brando was met with a mixture of boos and cheers. She said she saw actor John Wayne being restrained from rushing onto the stage while she was on it, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Last August, NPR’s Mandalit Del Barco reported on an interview Littlefeather gave to member station KQED in 2020 about the speech and its fallout.

“People were making money off this Hollywood Indian racism. Of course they’re going to boo. They don’t want their party to be interrupted.”

Littlefeather said she was escorted off stage at the Oscars by a team of security guards. She said that for years Hollywood boycotted her, calling her redlisted.

Earlier this year and almost 50 years later, the academy officially apologized to Littlefeather for the abuse she subsequently suffered as a result of her Oscar appearance. In a June letter from former academy president David Rubin, the academy described the “unwarranted and unwarranted” abuse she endured.

Brando later admitted his regret for the position he put Littlefeather in, according to The Los Angeles Time. “I was distressed that people booed and hissed and stomped on, even though it may have been directed at myself,” he told then-talk show host Dick Cavett. “They should have at least had the courtesy to listen to him.”

Even the most ardent fan of either team would be shocked to start October with three wins. Justin Fields for the Bears and Daniel Jones for the Giants are limited passers, so both teams rely on the ground game.

How to watch the Bears vs Giants game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you are unable to view the game locally due to incorrectly enforced blackout restrictions, you may need another way to watch the game and this is where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to prevent your ISP from throttling your game day speeds by encrypting your traffic. Plus, it’s a great idea when you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and connections.

With a VPN, you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet, or laptop to access the game. So if your ISP or mobile carrier has blocked you with an IP address that says incorrectly your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can fix this problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, unobstructed zone. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPNmake it really easy to do.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in all countries where VPNs are legal, including the United States and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You need to make sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even when VPNs are legal, the streaming service can terminate the account of anyone it believes is circumventing properly applied blackout restrictions.

Looking for other options? Be sure to check out some of the other great VPN offers is taking place at the moment.

Sarah Tew/CNET

ExpressVPN is our current best VPN for people who want a reliable and secure VPN, and it works on a variety of devices. It’s normally $13 a month, and you can sign up for ExpressVPN and save 49% and get three months of free access – the equivalent of $6.67 a month – if you get an annual subscription.

Note that ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Stream the Bears vs Giants game live in the US

This week’s Bears vs Giants game is on Fox, so in addition to a VPN, you’ll need a live tv streaming service which carries a local Fox affiliate that airs the game. The cheapest service is Sling TV Blue. You’ll need to be a Sling Blue subscriber in order to watch the game, and you’ll need to switch your VPN to the Chicago or New York areas.

Fronde/CNET

Of the live TV streaming services that carry local Fox stations, the cheapest is Sling TV Blue at $35 per month. Note that Sling is currently running a promotion where the first month of service is half price ($17.50) for new subscribers.

An important caveat: In our experience, local Fox affiliates will only be available if your billing address is in one of the 18 metropolitan areas covered by Sling’s agreement. If you’re outside of one of these areas, you’re probably better off opting for one of the alternative services listed below.

Many others live tv streaming services also broadcast local Fox stations, namely YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream and FuboTV. They all cost more than Sling TV, but they also offer more channels, including football-specific channels like Fox, ESPN, NFL Network, and/or RedZone. Discover our guide to live tv streaming channels for more details.

Quick tips for streaming Bears vs Giants using a VPN

  • With four variables in play – your ISP, browser, video streaming provider, and VPN – experience and success can vary.
  • Sling Blue is only an option if and when the ability to get local Fox affiliates is active on your account. You may want to verify that your billing address is eligible for this option before committing your credit card.
  • Sling Blue has agreements with local Fox channels in Chicago and New York, so Express VPN users can choose between locations.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as the default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for a city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after turning on your VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure that the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file in your account. Second, some smart TVs – like Roku – don’t have VPN apps that you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll need to install the VPN on your router or whatever mobile hotspot you use (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network will now appear in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with Smart TV services, after installing a cable network’s sports app, you will be asked to verify a numeric code or click on a link sent to your registered email address for your Smart TV . This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, as both devices will appear in the correct place.
  • And remember, browsers can often give away location despite using a VPN, so make sure you’re using a privacy-focused browser to connect to your services. We normally recommend Brave.
