76ers’ Jimmy Butler, Nets’ Jared Dudley ejected in Game 4

first_imgLATEST STORIES Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting “I don’t be paying attention to him too much,” Butler said. “I just don’t think you should run up on anybody like that.”“Especially because the foul was actually all ball,” Embiid interjected.That’s not the way the referees saw it, with crew chief Ed Malloy saying they ruled it a flagrant 1 after a video review because of Embiid’s windup and unnecessary contact they saw as excessive.Dudley and the Nets had already been angered by Embiid, who elbowed Allen in Game 2 and was given a flagrant 1 that the Nets thought should have been a 2, which means an automatic ejection. They were further upset when he laughed afterward while apologizing during his postgame news conference.“Yeah, for sure I send a message,” Dudley said. “When you have a guy giving flagrant fouls, I mean Joel Embiid is second in the league in flagrant fouls. So for that elbow he had before just to have a flagrant 1, no fine, no nothing, laughing in the media, if you think that a team that I play on is going to have (to accept) that, that’s another thing coming, especially on this young team.”ADVERTISEMENT Simmons and Dudley — who had exchanged words earlier — along with Malloy all went tumbling into the front row as referees rushed in to intervene. Dudley and Butler were both given technical fouls.“Dudley and Butler were ejected for their role as escalators, from taking a situation that was under control and escalating it to a heightened altercation,” Malloy said.Malloy said referees also looked at the roles of Simmons and the Nets’ D’Angelo Russell during their lengthy video review but determined they were acting as peacemakers who did not escalate the situation.

The teams that did not make the final selection for the men?s League were Ireland, Malaysia and Spain, whilst those not chosen for the women?s League were Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Japan and Spain women. “The announcement follows an extremely competitive candidate evaluation process which saw 13 men?s and 12 women?s applications submitted by National Associations,” FIH said in a release. “The confirmation of teams follows approval from the FIH Executive Board.

It embodies everything our 10-year strategy aims to achieve ? making hockey a global game that inspires the next generation.” PTI AT ATadvertisementlast_img read more

Ramos Does Self-Interview to Discuss Madrid Crisis

first_imgMADRID (AP) — With Real Madrid still recovering from one of the worst weeks in club history, team captain Sergio Ramos felt some issues needed to be addressed publicly.So he did it himself.In a self-interview posted on Instagram, Ramos talked about the “disastrous” recent events that ended Madrid’s hopes of winning another title this season. The Spanish team collapsed in a week in which it twice lost to Barcelona and once to Ajax, being eliminated from the Champions League and the Copa del Rey, and seeing its Spanish league title chances all but end.“As footballers we like to do our talking on the pitch but this season is not turning out that way,” Ramos wrote on Monday in English. “I’m not hiding. We are not hiding. We the players are primarily responsible and I, as captain, more than anyone. That’s why I thought that the most honest way to answer the questions that are circulating around us would be to tackle them directly.”Referee Alberto Undiano Mallenco gives a yellow card to Real defender Sergio Ramos, center, during the Spanish La Liga soccer match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona at the Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Saturday, March 2, 2019. (AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)He said forcing a yellow card in the first leg against Ajax — so he could be available for later phases of the competition — was “an error and I take the blame 200 percent.”He downplayed a supposed heated discussion with president Florentino Perez following the 4-1 loss to the Dutch club at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, saying “dressing room issues are discussed and resolved in the dressing room. There’s no problem whatsoever and everybody has the same interest: Real Madrid.”He also addressed criticism for allowing a film crew to shoot a documentary about him during the Ajax match at the Bernabeu.As footballers we like to do our talking on the pitch but this season is not turning out that way.Recent events have been disastrous and I’m not hiding. We are not hiding. We the players are primarily responsible and I, as captain, more than anyone. pic.twitter.com/QtooxgoJLY— Sergio Ramos (@SergioRamos) March 11, 2019“There are certain commitments made and it never remotely went through my head that the game could have turned out as it did,” he said. “The recording itself was scaled down as the game went on.”Ramos also dismissed having a problem with left back Marcelo after reports surfaced about a discussion between the veteran players during a recent practice session.“We have exchanges in every training session,” he said. “It’s part of working with pressure. But it’s just an anecdote like so many others that happen from day to day. (Marcelo) is like a brother to me.”Ramos could not play in Madrid’s 4-1 win at Valladolid on Sunday because of a suspension, but made the trip with the squad because he “wanted to be close and support my teammates.”He said he didn’t criticize the rest of the squad after the consecutive home losses that practically ended the team’s season.“We always talk and motivate each other in the dressing room and always in a constructive way,” he said.That’s why I thought that the most honest way to answer the questions that are circulating around us would be to tackle them directly.— Sergio Ramos (@SergioRamos) March 11, 2019Ramos also commented about Madrid’s coaching situation, with Santiago Solari on the brink of being fired.“It’s a decision that’s not ours to make and in which we never interfere,” Ramos said. “We have enormous respect for the position and we always support the Real Madrid coach.”Ramos closed his post by saying “these reflections are, without doubt, the result of a deeply disappointing season but if success didn’t stop us, we’re not going to let defeat stop us. It’s our obligation to carry on, to work and to evolve.”“And to remember that some of us are lucky enough to play for @realmadrid, some of us are lucky enough to form part of its history, but #RealMadrid was, is and will always be #RealMadrid. No one name makes the legend of Real Madrid, but we have all written that legend together. Together we have to work for the future and restore our hope.”By: Tales Azzoni, AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

IPL 2019: Rohit Sharma reveals Chepauk mantra after MI outclass CSK to reach final

first_imgThe MA Chidambaram Stadium has been Chennai Super Kings’ fortress over the years. In fact, MS Dhoni’s men have won 19 of their last 24 matches at the “Anbuden”.Over the years, Chennai Super Kings have banked on their performances on the slow Chepauk pitches to outfox opponents and consistently qualify for playoffs. However, when Mumbai Indians invade, Chepauk no longer remains the three-time champions’ den.Mumbai Indians were at it again in Chennai as they thrashed Chennai Super Kings in the Qualifier 1 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 and made it to their fifth final. | MI vs CSK Qualifier 1 – Highlights | Report |On a sluggish wicket at Chpeauk, Mumbai beat Chennai in their own game — use the spinners and strangulate the batting side.Mumbai Indians clinched a comfortable six-wicket win after restricting Chennai Super Kings to a below-par 131 for 4 in 20 overs. Rahul Chahar (2 for 14), Krunal Pandya (1 for 21) and Jayant Yadav (1 for 25) put the brakes on the scoring rate and kept even the likes of MS Dhoni quiet in front of a sea of yellow.Mumbai Indians have extended their positive record at Chepauk to 5-2 and are now unbeaten at CSK’s fortress since 2010. In IPL 2019, Mumbai have successfully overcome the Chepauk hurdle twice.Shedding light on Mumbai Indians’ consistent success in Chennai over the years, captain Rohit Sharma said their all-conditions attack and a batting unit that is keen on executing its plans well have helped them tame CSK at their own backyard.”We’ve got a balanced squad. Whatever the conditions are, we’ve got the squad for them. Have the balance we need on that kind of pitch. Even the batters are confident in what they want to execute. That’s probably one of the reasons we’ve had some success in Chennai because we play the conditions well and understand the conditions well,” Rohit Sharma said on Tuesday.advertisement5th @IPL final2010 -2013 -2015 -2017 -2019 – ?#OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvCSK @surya_14kumar pic.twitter.com/hUcgEXGvweMumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 7, 2019Mumbai Indians reached the fifth IPL final after their dominant win over Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday.

Grange Sees New businesses with Britain in Cultural and Creative Industries Emerging Through UK-Jamaica Trade Fair

first_imgStory Highlights “Our name has become synonymous with creativity and speed on the track. Put another way, the world knows, loves and respects Jamaica for its culture, including Reggae music, and sport, which many of you may know, I refer to as physical culture.” The Honourable Olivia Grange, Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, has said that Jamaica will be provided with an avenue to pursue new business ventures particularly in the Cultural and Creative Industries with Britain through a UK-Jamaica Trade Fair to be held by the British High Commission in Kingston next month.Minister Grange spoke today as special guest of the British High Commissioner, His Excellency Asif Ahmad, at a media launch for the UK-Jamaica Trade Fair held at the High Commission.“In spite of its small size, Jamaica has received global recognition — the kind that only superpowers command and sometimes demand.“Today, the name ‘Jamaica’ is never uttered anywhere in the world without a response.“Our name has become synonymous with creativity and speed on the track. Put another way, the world knows, loves and respects Jamaica for its culture, including Reggae music, and sport, which many of you may know, I refer to as physical culture.”The Minister said, “I see Jamaican creative men and women creating and capitalising on business opportunities in the UK.“We believe in our cultural goods. We know their potency. But we have to design and package our goods in ways that make them attractive to our audience in Britain and elsewhere. Both genders should enjoy access to the cultural goods on a basis of equality to cater to the gender-differential and facilitate diversity.“We are proud and happy to celebrate with Britain the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush, the ship that brought Jamaican and Caribbean people to start a new life in Britain and help in the development of what we then called the “Mother Country”.“We have brought our culture to enrich Britain, and the Notting Hill Gate Carnival, spearheaded by Jamaicans is the biggest summer carnival in all of Europe, bringing together people of all nations and races to enjoy and celebrate Caribbean culture, especially in music.High Commissioner Ahmad said the UK-Jamaica Trade fair which will take place on the grounds of the High Commission on March 3, 2018, “will be a platform for a modern UK Jamaica relationship.

India Incs Q1 earnings poorest in 3 years festive season may be

first_imgBENGALURU: India Inc has turned in its most disappointing quarterly numbers in at least three years and analysts warn hopes for any festive season cheer are likely to be dashed by a slowing economy. More than 60 per cent of 125 firms that have reported so far, and are tracked by analysts, missed profit forecasts for the June quarter, the most since at least 2016, Refinitiv data shows. India’s biggest lenders and automakers have all sounded warning bells over the slower growth in demand and consumption. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”It’s going to be a gloomy Diwali. Things are not going to change immediately in the next two or three months,” said Umesh Mehta, head of research at Samco Securities. The Indian festive season, which starts in September and runs through the end of the year, is the biggest sales season for companies. It typically peaks around Diwali, or the festival of lights, in October. But this time, the outlook for the period is subdued after India’s economy grew at the slowest pace in more than four years in the January-March quarter. An erratic monsoon, high rates of unemployment and a liquidity crisis in the shadow banking sector have added to the uncertainty. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost”Consumers are currently postponing their purchases because of the general slowdown,” said Neeraj Dewan, director, Quantum Securities. Consumer goods giant Hindustan Unilever has warned demand will “remain subdued given macroeconomic conditions”. The benchmark Nifty index NSEI has dropped more than 10 per cent since hitting an all-time high in early June and is the fourth-worst performer among its major Asian peers so far this year. “The growth engine is slowing down, which is why we are seeing a sell-off,” Samco’s Mehta said. Automakers have been among the worst hit by the slump in demand, with monthly auto sales in India down 17-20 per cent since April. Preliminary data shows overall car sales in the country may have dropped as much as 30 per cent in July. Tata Motors, India’s top automaker by revenue, posted a bigger-than-expected loss for the June quarter. Rival Maruti Suzuki, which managed to top estimates aided by cost cuts, saw an 18 per cent drop in sales. Gopal Mahadevan, finance head at truck maker Ashok Leyland, has said the lower auto sales have “more to do with the general economic condition” and not a demand problem. Among the few bright spots for the quarter was Johnny Walker and Smirnoff maker Diageo, which reported an 8 per cent rise in sales in India, led by strong demand for scotch. Its subsidiary, United Spirits, posted a near 10 per cent rise in sales. “The lipstick effect, which indicates consumers spend more on low-ticket luxury and instant gratification items during a crisis, could be at play here,” said Gnanasundaram Saminathan, a research analyst at Spark Capital Advisors.last_img read more

Fastfood operator kicks in 80 million to help UN feed schoolchildren

25 September 2008The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) will be able to provide over 200 million meals to hungry schoolchildren in the developing world, thanks to commitment of $80 million announced today by leading restaurant company YUM! Brands. The pledge was made during the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in New York, which coincides with the UN high-level event on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – the eight targets for slashing poverty, hunger, illiteracy and other socio-economic ills by 2015.Set up in 2005 by former United States president Bill Clinton, the CGI – rather than giving away money – creates an opportunity for people with ideas to connect with people with resources. Its members have made commitments designed to, among others, reduce poverty and hunger, work toward education for all and combat disease.“We are ever so grateful to President Clinton, who acted as catalyst to draw together some of America’s most dynamic corporate actors in this groundbreaking initiative,” said WFP chief Josette Sheeran, after the announcement by YUM! Brands, a conglomerate that is the parent firm of TACO Bell, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken. “This incredible expression of generosity shows what can be done when the private sector joins with a major humanitarian agency to help meet the needs of some of the world’s most vulnerable children,” said Ms. Sheeran.WFP has made a commitment to provide meals for an additional one million children for an entire academic year. Daily meals offer an enormous incentive for poor families in the developing world to send their children to school and commonly lead to drastically improved attendance rates.The push comes as part of a multi-pronged effort by WFP to help nations manage the impact of high food prices that have driven millions more into hunger and poverty. President Clinton has also announced a partnership with WFP to combat intestinal worm infections among children, a huge and debilitating health problem in developing countries. WFP hopes to reach more than 2 million schoolchildren a year with de-worming tablets. read more

Bills shuffle punters by signing Darr releasing Schmidt

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills are shuffling punters by signing Matt Darr and releasing Colton Schmidt for the second time in three months.Darr has not played since spending the 2015 and ’16 seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He averaged 47.6 yards per punt in 2015, and was selected to the all-rookie team.Schmidt struggled during three games in which he averaged 42.3 yards per punt, and was particularly inconsistent in a 24-21 win against Jacksonville last weekend. Schmidt spent the previous four seasons with the Bills before being released after Buffalo claimed rookie Corey Bojorquez off waivers in September.The Bills re-signed Schmidt last month after Bojorquez hurt his shoulder and was placed on injured reserve.Buffalo is 4-7 and travels to play at Miami on Sunday.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLThe Associated Press read more

Microsoft helps Barnes and Noble announce Nook Video

first_imgIt’s been a few months since Microsoft announced an intent to invest in Barnes and Noble. The early suspicion was that these two companies were going to work together on a new tablet, or maybe Microsoft wanted to add the eBook retailer to the list of launch applications for Windows 8. There’s been very little said about that investment until today, when Barnes and Noble announced Nook Video, a new video store and streaming service.The Nook Video store will offer users the ability to shop for movies and TV shows from a wide selection of content creators. Starz, Viacom, HBO, and Disney are just a few of the companies that have signed on to provide content to the store, with a promise from Barnes and Noble that more will be available later. Everything you purchase from Nook Video will be available in the Nook Cloud, and it’s likely that everything with access to the cloud service will be able to stream Nook Video purchases.On top of digital purchases from Nook Video, users will be able to add content from Blu-ray and DVD purchases that are Ultraviolet compatible, which will give Nook users access to some content weeks before it is available in other digital retailers.Nook Video will offer Barnes and Noble subscribers a massive infusion of content, quickly elevating the Nook tablets to a highly competitive state. The selection available on the Nook will quickly surpass what is available on Google’s Play Store, and the service will be the only one to offer Ultraviolet natively instead of through the Flixster app.B&N was able to put together all of this because of Microsoft. The content creators that are going to be providing content to the Nook are the some ones currently providing content through Microsoft’s Xbox Live service. Even the Ultraviolet integration is due largely to Microsoft being one of the principal backers of the the budding digital content service. Nook Video will be available in the Fall for the US and available in the UK by the holiday season.last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Because Johnson wasn’t a first-round pick, there’s no fifth-year option on him, and his extension likely has to get done this summer. Assuming it does and he doesn’t miss any 2018 games, Johnson is in position to shoulder more of his team’s offense than any other player in the league. As a runner and a pass-catcher, Johnson should be the best friend of whomever the Cardinals use at quarterback — Sam Bradford or Josh Rosen. And if he does get a huge new deal, you can bet the Cardinals will use him as much as they can to justify it. Johnson’s 2017 injury was a wrist, not a leg injury, so there’s no reason to doubt that he can return to his dominant 2016 form.Johnson has shown he can rack up the yards in both the run and passing games in a hurry.Prior to his injury in 2017, Johnson was one of the top backs in the NFL.His 1,239 yards on the ground were seventh best in the league, while taking home the No. 2 spot in touchdowns with 16. Only seven running backs had double-digit touchdowns.Related LinksCardinals’ David Johnson ready to reclaim his future in 2018‘Mindset of a vet’: Cardinals rookie QB Rosen is no long shot to be starterAnd if he wasn’t running out of the backfield with the rock, he was burning people as a receiver.Johnson was the only running back in 2016 in the top 40 for receiving yards. He compiled 879 yards on 80 receptions to go along with four scores. His MVP-esque season was almost one for the record books as well. If he would have reached the 1,000-yard mark through the air, he would have joined Marshall Faulk and Roger Craig as the only players to record a 1,000-1,000 season. (AP Photos) But unlike his 2016 season, Johnson is going through something relatively new in 2018.The running back, who is in his final year of his rookie deal, held out of mandatory mini-camp in June as both sides failed to reach a contract extension.Rosen, who has already been in numerous headlines during the offseason, is the other Cardinal mentioned.My offshoot prediction is that, at the conclusion of the 2020 season, Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson is the 2018 draft quarterback about whom the league’s fans are most excited. But since I don’t expect Jackson to start at quarterback for the Ravens until 2019, I hedge here against Sam Bradford’s injury history. The Browns, Bills and Ravens don’t want to play their first-round quarterbacks this year, and the Jets probably would rather wait to play theirs as well. The Cardinals, given Bradford’s well-known fragility, may have no choice.While quarterbacks like Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield have garnered a lot of attention, it looks like they will have to sit and wait for a period of time.With Sam Bradford’s injury history, Rosen could get his chance sooner than later.The rookie has already seen time with the first-stringers and has turned heads within the organization with his confidence and command since he arrived. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “He’s smart. This guy is extremely smart. I mean, his ability to see certain things from the defense and pick it up quickly and execute — I don’t want to say this, but he has the mindset of a vet, the way he sees the game,” head coach Steve Wilks said during the second week of organized team activities.Here are some of the eyebrow-raisers within the 25 predictions:– Odell Beckham Jr. will change teams.– The Dallas Cowboys win one of the next three Super Bowls.– Jim Harbaugh returns to the NFL as a head coach.– The kickoff will disappear.
