The Tigers had a disappointing 2018 season, one that nearly resulted in the ousting of Malzahn, according to reports. If the same happens in 2019, he’ll likely be done, says Finebaum.Finebaum said on ESPN’s Get Up! this week that he thinks Malzahn will “likely be gone” without a “significant season.”Auburn does have talent, though.“I happen to think top to bottom as a football team, particularly on the defensive side of the ball — and also offensively with some of the weapons they have got coming back, which is virtually everybody, this may be the best top-to-bottom team Gus Malzahn has had,” ESPN’s Tom Luginbill said, per AL.com.Finebaum isn’t quite as high on the Tigers, however.“(Luginbill) is looking at it analytically,” Finebaum added. “He’s as good as anyone there is, but the problem is psychological. (Auburn) is a slight favorite against Oregon, but you have a brand-new quarterback. Oregon has an experienced quarterback. If Oregon gets on the roll and beats them, the pressure becomes intense.“Gus Malzahn was nearly fired last season with 35 million in buyout money hanging in the balance. For as talented as they may be, if they don’t gel well, he’s not going to have an answer for the schedule.”Auburn will get a chance to make a statement right away.The Tigers begin the year on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. E.T. against Oregon. ESPN’s College GameDay will be there for that one.

“Whether caused by fighting or a breakdown in Government control, the damage to the environment has devastating consequences for people’s health and well-being […] it is not a new problem, but is one that can last for decades,” said Mr. Guterres in a message on the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict.“Areas of Europe are still affected by heavy-metal contamination from munitions used during the First World War.” In his message, the Secretary-General also highlighted the importance of a healthy environment for people to rebuild their lives once fighting stops, noting that the shared management of natural resources can also provide avenues to maintain or improve relations. Given the importance of the environment and natural resources for sustainable development, the UN chief called for steps to reduce the collateral damage from conflicts and protect them. “The UN is committed to protecting the environment as an essential pillar of peace, security and sustainable development,” he stressed. According to the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), conflicts over natural resources are among the greatest challenges confronting today’s world, with serious threats to human security. Furthermore, at least 40 per cent of all internal armed conflicts over the past 65 years have had an important natural resource dimension. Since 1989, more than 35 major armed conflicts have been financed by revenues from conflict resources, and there are fears that in the coming years, extreme climate stresses could double the risk of violent conflict. However, despite these risks, there are also “significant opportunities” linking the environment and peacebuilding, added UNEP. “Let us not forget the power of environmental cooperation to drive peace and prosperity,” said UNEP Executive Director Erik Solheim. Also today, joining forces with the Environmental Law Institute, the Earth Institute at Columbia University, Duke University, and the University of California at Irvine, UNEP opened the enrolment at the online course, Environmental Security and Sustaining Peace, which aims to build a community of 10,000 practitioners that can make natural resources a reason for global cooperation. The course covers a range of natural resources, from extractives to land and water, as well as a range of tools and approaches from conflict and gender sensitivity to assessments, meditation and spatial planning.
