Takeaways: On dreary night at the Tank, Sharks “got what we deserved”

first_imgSAN JOSE — The Sharks knew they were going to face a hungry Columbus team at SAP Center on Thursday, particularly after the Blue Jackets were beaten on home ice by the struggling Detroit Red Wings earlier this week.But the Sharks — even though they were coming off their own forgettable loss — didn’t match the Blue Jackets’ desperation level, or their work ethic, until it was too late.That’s a bit concerning.One would have figured the Sharks would have come out harder than they did to start …last_img

Kyler Murray giving up football for A’s? It’s complicated

first_imgOAKLAND — When Kyler Murray was selected ninth overall by the A’s in June’s MLB Draft, the thought of him actually having a shot to play in the NFL was a mere fantasy.He was the heir to 2017 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, taking over as quarterback for a traditionally high-powered Oklahoma squad. But listed at just 5-foot-11 and around 195 pounds, there was no chance of Murray playing on Sundays unless it was a 1:05 matinée with the A’s. The only real concern on Oakland’s side of things …last_img

Photos/Video: Ohio State Kicked Off Spring Practice Tuesday

first_imgOhio State spring ball poster.It’s been less than two months since Ohio State shocked the college football world by upending Oregon in the College Football Playoff National Championship game. The Buckeyes are already back at it. Tuesday was the first day of spring practice for the squad, which will look to defend its title in 2015.Here are some notes, photos and clips from the event. It’s noted that quarterback Braxton Miller was able to do some light throwing, but that Cardale Jones was the only signal-caller able to participate fully. In the background of a few of the videos, you can see the National Champions 2014 banner hanging in the team’s practice facility.Braxton Miller off to the side at Ohio State spring practice throwing a little.

Trudeau No comment on North Korea threats lets pursue a diplomatic solution

first_imgUNITED NATIONS, N.Y. – Justin Trudeau avoided being drawn into the tit-for-tat threats between the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea, pointing instead to signs that diplomacy might prevail in a nuclear standoff that has the countries trading insults.Canada’s prime minister said he spoke this week with the South Korean president about possible solutions to the standoff, notably by working with China. There were indeed signs Thursday of a bolstered Chinese role, via economic measures.What Trudeau wouldn’t do was comment on the threats — Kim Jong Un called U.S. President Donald Trump “deranged” on Thursday, and said he would “pay dearly” for talking about “totally destroy(ing)” the country, in a speech where Trump also dubbed the North Korean leader, “Rocket Man.”“As always I will pay close attention to what our American friends and neighbours have to say. … But it’s not my job to opine,” Trudeau said when asked by journalists about the earlier Trump comments.“It is my job to ensure that we maintain a good relationship with the United States — particularly as we renegotiate NAFTA. And also that Canada stays focused on de-escalating the situation … through diplomatic means.”There were signs of that non-military force being ramped up Thursday.Trump escalated pressure with an executive order that punishes companies that do business with North Korea, forcing them to choose whether they want to do commerce with the superpower U.S. or the so-called Hermit Kingdom.He also relayed some apparently big news: “I’m very proud to tell you that … China, their central bank, has told their other banks — that’s a massive banking system — to immediately stop doing business with North Korea. This just happened,” Trump said, citing reports.The young North Korean leader offered a bitter late-day riposte.Kim insulted the U.S. president as deranged, unfit for high office, he warned Trump would pay dearly for his threats, and he called Trump “a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire.”Kim said he is, “thinking hard” about his response, in a statement carried by the state news agencyTrudeau was asked whether he thinks this is empty insult-flinging between two perennial adversary nations — or a true emerging security crisis, with the risk of devastating consequences.“I think the situation in North Korea is extremely serious,” Trudeau replied.“The North Korean regime represents a threat to not just regional security, but global peace,” he said. “The reckless behaviour, pronouncements and the development of nuclear weapons by North Korea represents something that all countries in the world should be seized with and concerned about.”last_img read more

How Many Digits Of Pi You Have To Have Memorized To Be

3.1415926535 3.141526 If you can get to the first 3 after the decimal point, you’re in the top 5 percent of pi memorizers. I asked the people who got that far to keep going, and most tapped out shortly after.The biggest drop came after “3.14,” as respondents who got that far made it to “3.141” only about 52 percent of the time.And that’s fine!NASA employees can probably get away with knowing only the first six digits after the decimal point. Also, we have calculators for when we need a few more digits, TI-89s for when those calculators are insufficient and Wolfram Alpha for when we reduce those calculators to a smoking, melted mess.Maybe after the highly anticipated apocalypse, the guys at the Large Hadron Collider will be happy to have that dude who memorized tens of thousands of pi digits around, but for now, he’s just got a weird hobby. Knowing pi is strictly a performative act, like people who readily volunteer their SAT score or high school completion percentage.But, uh, happy holidays. Today is Pi Day — the day each year, March 14, that follows the first three digits of pi (3.14). And this year’s Pi Day is a special one: Since — in the U.S. — the date is represented as 3/14/15, we have the first five digits of pi on the calendar.That’s news for some people. When it comes to how many digits of pi people know by heart, the majority only know 3.14. Which is fine! Unless you’re building a bridge, that’s the most you will really need to know.I asked SurveyMonkey Audience to put out a poll to see how far people could get reciting the infinite digits of pi. Of 941 respondents, 836 attempted to name the digits after the decimal point. This is how far they got: 3.173 3.1415919 3.14133 3.141592610 3.141592657 3.14159212 LEVEL OF PRECISIONPERCENTAGE OF RESPONDENTS 3.1464 read more

Columbus Crew unveils new uniforms preps for opener

Warzycha was released from his contract Sept. 2, and then-technical director Brian Bliss served as interim head coach for the final eight games of the season.“We’re excited about the season, we’re excited to have you guys behind us, we’re excited to unveil the jersey and we look forward to this Saturday’s game,” Berhalter said.McCullers and Berhalter then removed a large poster emblazoned with the team logo to expose an oversize mounted replica of the new Adidas jersey.At the same moment, Crew players overlooking the crowd from a second-floor balcony at the venue all removed their warmups to reveal their new jerseys, a surprise move that elicited loud cheers from those in attendance.“I love it. I mean, I think it’s lighter than last year’s jersey. No collar, I like it, it’s much cleaner,” midfielder Wil Trapp said. “I think it’s gonna come in handy when we get into the summer months and it’s humid. That takes a huge toll on your body, honestly. You want something that’s breathable and you can move around in.”Trapp said the material was similar to that of the team’s training jerseys but that the players have yet to wear-test the new kit on the field.In keeping with soccer tradition and MLS rules that dictate the goalkeeper’s jersey be of a different color than his teammates’, Columbus native and Ohio State product Matt Lampson’s jersey featured a turquoise-and-pink color scheme that he said is “very 80s retro.”Despite the different appearance of his uniform, Lampson corroborated Trapp’s testimonial of the fabric by saying it felt “comfortable, light (and) breezy.”“I’ve only seen this one and a green one that we have as well and I like them both,” Lampson said. “They’re very different, very progressive, compared to the typical ones we’ve had the past few seasons … I can’t wait to rep them on the field.”Former player and member of the 2008 MLS Cup-winning Columbus squad, Crew brand ambassador Frankie Hejduk was also on hand for the event.Functioning as an impromptu master-of-ceremonies after the unveiling, he invited fans up to the platform to start supporter chants for the crowd’s enjoyment.Hejduk also talked about the buzz surrounding the team leading into the regular season.“They dismantled (reigning MLS Cup Champions Sporting) KC like it was nothing, man,” Hejduk said of the team’s last outing, a 4-1 win that capped off an unbeaten five-game preseason slate. “You saw that counterattack going down. So they have some high expectations of this season and we’re gonna get behind them. Win or lose (or) draw, you know this: we bleed black and gold.”The Crew is scheduled to take the field against D.C. United in Washington, D.C., Saturday at 7 p.m. read more

Villa Boro want Bolasie

first_imgAston Villa and Middlesbrough both want Yannick Bolasie from Everton despite the close of the summer transfer window in England, according to Birmingham Mail.The winger has fallen out of favor at Goodison Park with new manager Marco Silva opting to spend around £45million for Brazilian youngster Richarlison, who plays the same position as Bolasie.Bolasie joined Everton for a then club-record fee of around £30million from Crystal Palace back in 2016 and was linked with a return to Selhurst Park this summer but that failed to materialize.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.With the loan window still very active, Aston Villa want the Congolese star to join the club on loan as they look to improve their squad for the upcoming season after decimating the squad initially due to financial issues.Meanwhile, Middlesbrough are also believed to be interested in the services of Bolasie. Tony Pulis is in search of another winger to replace the already departed Adama Traore who joined newly promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.Bolasie appears to have little or no future with Everton and he’s widely expected to leave the Toffees this summer.last_img read more
