Sport Don't judge Manly too harshly: Brown
What Biden’s first list of judicial nominees tells us about his approach to the courts
Biden named a diverse group of 11 lawyers to the federal bench on Tuesday, including several former public defenders.During his presidency, Donald Trump reshaped the judiciary, appointing a third of the Supreme Court and about as many federal appellate judges in four years as President Barack Obama appointed in eight. Biden’s first slate of nominees hardly even begins to turn back that tide, but it does offer a window into how he is likely to approach the courts during his presidency. The 11 nominees are racially diverse and predominantly female, and quite a few are lawyers with backgrounds as public defenders.
Warriors coach Nathan Brown believes Manly's winless start to the NRL season comes with an asterisk as the teams shape up for their Central Coast Stadium showdown on Friday night.
The Sea Eagles' season appears in disarray after failing to notch a win - or even mount a genuine challenge - in the opening four rounds.
The Warriors meanwhile, have split their results.
But Brown, who will mark his 250th NRL game as coach, felt Manly were stronger than their results suggested.
"The Eagles have played Penrith, Souths and the Roosters - all extremely difficult teams who were considered top four coming into the season," Brown said.
Beloved Michigan Cop Took Vacation. COVID Made It His Last.
Trooper Herman Brown of the Michigan State Police was sometimes actually thanked by people he arrested. “Most of the time,” his longtime fellow trooper, Sgt. Sharon McCarthy, attests. That included people who were being their wildest or worst selves when Brown arrived on the scene. “You’re acting silly,” he would tell them. “Calm down.” He would then offer an affirmation. ‘You’re still a good person,” he would say, his words matched by voice and demeanor.After almost 28 years as a “road dog” patrolling Monroe and Lenawee counties in a radio car, he still chose to see the best in his fellow humans.“He made people feel special,” McCarthy said.
"They're going through some difficult times with Tommy Trbojevic being out and a couple of other blokes being out so I wouldn't look too much into where they are on the ladder.

"They've played some very good teams, and for us, we've got to sort out our own backyard to give ourselves a good chance."
Manly have named Jack Gosiewski in the second row to replace the injured Morgan Boyle (shoulder) while centre Morgan Harper will cover Moses Suli (back).
The Warriors suffered a huge blow this week, losing representative enforcer Addin Fonua-Blake to a knee injury which is likely to sideline him for at least eight weeks.
Tohu Harris has been named in the front row while ex-Parramatta prop Kane Evans has been included on the bench to make his Warriors debut, in a timely boost.
With the Warriors ranked first in the competition for set completion, Brown demanded an improvement in his team's defence following their 20-point loss to the Sydney Roosters last round.
"The key thing is obviously the defence," Brown said.
"We got well beaten there with the speed of the game by the Roosters the other day so it's an area of the game we've certainly got to improve."
