first_imgNEW YORK — Brandon McCarthy. Chris Capuano. Shane Greene. And now, Esmil Rogers.The New York Yankees have gone on an improbable run to get right back in the thick of the playoff race and an unlikely bunch of pitchers have led the way.Rogers, perhaps the unlikeliest of all, worked five sharp innings Aug. 8 and Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs as the Yankees beat the sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 for their sixth win in seven games.“They’ve pitched extremely well,” Manager Joe Girardi said. “I’m not sure any of us knew exactly what to expect, but since the All-Star break we’ve had a chance to win every game and that’s because of them.”The Yankees walked seven times in moving seven games above .500 (61-54) for the first time this season. They are 14-7 since the break.Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career list with his 3,430th hit in a five-run first inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7).Beltran’s 11th career slam highlighted a five-run sixth. The Indians, who have the majors’ worst fielding percentage, prolonged both innings with errors in their fourth straight loss overall and seventh in a row in the Bronx.“I think we all understand the type of team we need to be to win, and not making teams earn every single thing they get does not put us in the best position to win,” Indians Manager Terry Francona said.Picked up off waivers on July 31 after the Toronto Blue Jays cut him for the second time this season, Rogers (2-0) became the 12th player to make a start for New York.Pitching in place of David Phelps (elbow inflammation), he allowed one run and four hits over five innings in his first start since Sept. 25 for Toronto and threw 88 pitches — 45 was his high this season coming in.“I didn’t have my confidence like I have right now,” Rogers said about the difference between the way he is pitching now compared to earlier in the season.Rogers’ outing followed four fine starts by a makeshift rotation against the Detroit Tigers’ heralded staff. Three of those came from pitchers who made their first start for the Yankees in July: McCarthy, Capuano and Greene.The Yankees took advantage of three walks by Bauer in the first inning. Beltran, Stephen Drew and Martin Prado had RBI singles and another run scored on second baseman Jason Kipnis’ throwing error.Bauer was charged with five runs and six hits in 3 1-3 innings.John Axford walked the bases loaded — one intentional — before Beltran connected.(HOWIE RUMBERG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgPress Release, September 05, 2014 zoom Middle Harbor Terminal Redevelopment ProjectThe Long Beach City Council voted unanimously Tuesday, September 2, to approve an USD 858 million budget for the Port of Long Beach for the upcoming fiscal year, with two-thirds of the spending set aside for a robust building and modernization program.For the fiscal year starting October 1, 2014, the Harbor Department plans to spend USD 579 million on capital projects ― part of a decade-long, USD 4 billion investment in Port upgrades and efficiency improvements.The ongoing Desmond Bridge Replacement Project and Middle Harbor Terminal Redevelopment will continue to be the Port’s largest construction projects.The ambitious spending plan reflects the Port’s commitment to boosting its competitiveness in the long term by updating or replacing older facilities and infrastructure.“To remain competitive, the Port needs to continually reinvest in major facilities upgrades,” said Chief Executive Jon Slangerup at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. “We are proud that the Port of Long Beach remains financially strong. And we continue to work to make it stronger.”The budget projects operating revenue of USD 346.8 million in the coming year, on par with this year’s revenues.The approved budget adds 28 new full-time positions, which include 20 in Engineering to support ongoing capital improvements, and six to enhance Port security operations.The budget also includes funding of more than USD 30 million for environmental programs and projects such as technology-advancement demonstrations of a barge-based pollution-control system for ships at berth and an electric highway truck system.last_img read more

EDMONTON — Two federal cabinet ministers are making appearances in Alberta today following the Trudeau government’s controversial second approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi is set to visit Trans Mountain Corp.’s terminal in Edmonton, while Finance Minister Bill Morneau will address an Economic Club of Canada breakfast in Calgary.The appearances in oil-rich Alberta come a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave approval to build the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, which would carry diluted bitumen from Alberta to an export terminal near Vancouver.In a news conference in Ottawa on Tuesday, Trudeau attempted to strike a balance between finding new markets for Canadian oil and his party’s own branding as protectors of the environment.The decision to approve the project a second time came nine months after the Federal Court of Appeal quashed Ottawa’s initial approval, citing incomplete consultations with Indigenous communities and a faulty environmental review.WATCH: Federal Court of Appeal quashes Trans Mountain approval Alberta Premier Jason Kenney was among those applauding the federal government’s decision on Tuesday, while expressing skepticism the project will actually be completed.“This second approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline isn’t a victory to celebrate. It’s just another step in a process that has frankly taken too long,” Kenney said.READ MORE: Alberta lauds re-approval of Trans Mountain expansionConservative Leader Andrew Scheer also scoffed at the idea the pipeline would ever be built, and cast doubts on Trudeau’s sincerity about supporting the energy industry.“He hasn’t done anything,” Scheer said. “Show me the pipeline. Where is it?”On the other end of the political spectrum, Green party Leader Elizabeth May and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh were unequivocal in their opposition to Trudeau’s decision.That’s what we said in #GPC press release denouncing the cynicism of investing billions of $$ of our money in fossil fuel expansion and then claiming “profits” will go to clean energy – someday. We have to keep fighting this insanity. #StopTMX #climate #ClimateEmergency— Elizabeth May (@ElizabethMay) June 19, 2019The project has also caused major friction between British Columbia and Alberta. Trudeau called both Kenney and B.C. Premier John Horgan to inform them of the decision Tuesday.Horgan said Tuesday he reiterated his concerns about the potential of a marine spill.

first_imgSamsung’s new flagship phone, the Galaxy S4, is set to release at AT&T stores on April 27, but customers that pre-ordered the device may receive it a couple of days before. Due to the nature of smartphones and the news cycle surrounding them, we generally know their capabilities before they hit the market. What we don’t know, however, is how much abuse they can take, which is why drop and scratch tests are always so prevalent right around a major phone release.Thankfully, the Galaxy S4 is no different, and if you have the stomach for it, you can watch someone else attempt to ruin his phone with the help of some knives, pens, and coins.The video shows various knives having their way with the Galaxy S4’s screen, from what looks to be some sort of letter opener or cheese knife, to a serrated knife and a big steak knife. Each knife slices, rubs, and stabs the screen, causing us to wince in anticipatory fear as if the screen will suddenly be replaced by someone’s hand.The most likely culprit of a scratch that gets tested, though, are some pennies and keys, as those have a higher chance of being in the same pocket as your phone than a steak knife does.The Galaxy S4 is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, which certainly seems to hold its own against a barrage of cutlery, coins, and keys. The tester isn’t going easy on the phone either, as each item generates a loud noise when making contact with the screen.The end result is a screen without any damage whatsoever. So, if you were on the fence about purchasing a Galaxy S4 because you didn’t want to give up stuffing your pockets full of knives, you have nothing to fear.last_img read more

Rs 13000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs Mamata

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday announced a slew of industrial projects involving an investment of Rs 13,000 crore that is tipped to create employment for almost two lakh people.”Our state is the safest place for investment and so IT majors, namely Wipro and Infosys, are coming here. These industrial and MSME projects will come up on 1633 acre land which involves an investment of Rs 13,000 crore. There will be the employment of 2 lakh people in these projects,” she said at Howrah’s Nabanna Sabhagar event where she laid foundation stones and inaugurated a host of projects. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe Chief Minister added: “I am very much against sitting with placards protesting in front of factory gates and hosting agitations. The factories should run and if there is any discontent on the part of the employees, it can be resolved through talks. Stalling of work is not a solution. The owner and the employee should work hand-in-hand to solve any crisis.” Banerjee also took the opportunity to hit out at the saffron party (without taking any name) and said that Bengal does not believe in violence and anarchy. “There should be competition on the basis of work shunning the path of anarchy and violence. If there is a split in communities in a factory then how can it run,” she questioned.

We have a commitment towards the common people and also towards the industry. We want industries to come here.” Referring to the recession in the country, Banerjee said many industries are closing down with the automobile sector being the worse hit. “Bengal has registered the highest GDP growth in the country and recently we have created the potential for five lakh jobs at the Bantala Leather Complex,” she added. The Chief Minister also stressed on revamping the existing single window system of the state government. “There should be a nodal officer and officials of the government departments to expedite projects. The mechanism should be extended to the district levels also,” Banerjee said emphasizing on quick issuance of fire license and other necessary clearances for business ventures. Among the projects, Banerjee handed over some possessions to units at the Gems and Jewellery Park at Ankurhati and announced several projects including the hosiery park in Jagadishpur, foundry park at Ranihati, chemical park in Jagatballavpur, mini foundry park at Jagatballavpur and multimodal logistics park in Sankrail. The investment at the logistics park alone will be more than Rs 600 crore and more than 3,500 people will be getting employed. Banerjee also inaugurated the newly constructed head office of the state Food and Supplies department and a digital library bringing 21,500 books to the public domain. A total of 90 passenger shelters under the PWD were also unveiled.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element. LISTEN: Luke and Paige Show SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Drew Stanton was not special for the Cardinals in Thursday’s 33-21 win over the 49ers, but he didn’t have to be.Facing an opponent that ranked last in the NFL in rushing defense, the gameplan was to run the ball until the 49ers stopped it. They never did, so the Cardinals kept running.It was the perfect scenario for the Cardinals and their backup quarterback, who got his first start since 2014 due to Carson Palmer recovering from a concussion. They weren’t.Along with Golden, Calais Campbell had two sacks, Kevin Minter had 1.5, D.J. Swearinger had one and Alex Okafor had 0.5.“Everybody is competitive,” Golden said. “You wouldn’t be in the NFL if you were not competitive. Everybody just wants to get a sack. Everybody wants to make plays to make the team win and we did that tonight.”Mathieu back in the slot, but not back yetEarlier this week, Tyrann Mathieu said he was ready to return to his former role in the slot if the team needed him there.Once it was learned safety Tyvon Branch was placed on injured reserve, the Cardinals needed Mathieu there.Mathieu lined up in the slot for much of the game Thursday night, and was in on a few tackles but also got burned on some plays and drew a penalty.“I felt good, at times,” he said. “I wasn’t really able to practice covering — I haven’t covered since December of last year, man-on-man; everything this week was a walk-through.“So at first it was kind of sloppy; I felt like I played a little sloppy, as far as the coverage side of it. The more I play in the slot, the more I’ll get back comfortable covering people, different things like that.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling In a lot of ways, Stanton was the perfect backup quarterback Thursday. He did not lose the game and made enough plays to supplement a great effort from the running game and defense. And while that recipe may not lead to wins every week, for at least this one, it worked.That it took a little while for Stanton to settle in and settle down is less relevant now.“Yeah, it’s hard to do, you know,” Arians said about Stanton slowing things a bit. “It’s hard to do when, you know, when you haven’t played in a little while and you know where you want to go with it. And it’s like guys were turning around and pft, there’s the ball, you know?“And so, I didn’t want him to play any slower, you know? But, I was very pleased with his effort.”Markus Golden leads the pass rushMarkus Golden came on strong toward the end of last season as a rookie, finishing the year with four sacks.Five games into the 2016 seasons, he has already blown past that number.“Oh, he’s lightyears ahead, because he understands what he’s doing,” Arians said of Golden. “He’s gotten better. He’s got better guys around him, and he’s been a force since he’s been here.” Golden now has six sacks on the season, two of which came in Thursday’s win over the 49ers. His effort was part of a seven-sack night for a Cardinals defense that seemed to spend at least half of its time on the field in San Francisco’s backfield terrorizing San Francisco QB Blaine Gabbert.“We have to give credit to the coaches,” Golden said. “All of them called the right calls today. We were able to get after them up front.”Even when the Cardinals weren’t bringing Gabbert down, they were pressuring him.“I think there was a little bit more twist game going on up front and then we didn’t do a very good job of handling that, from where I’m standing,” 49ers coach Chip Kelly said. “We have to go through that because a lot of those pressures that occurred on the quarterback occurred in a four-man rush.“So, they have a lot of guys in coverage and there for the quarterback has to hold the ball a little bit to make sure that we’re getting the ball out to the right receiver and then he doesn’t have a lot of time because of the pressure that they got. But they did a nice job in their twist game with four guys, just four men rushing, creating pressure on the quarterback. Obviously, mathematically, we should be up there. There’s five offensive linemen and four defensive linemen. We should be in a good situation.” Stanton completed 11-of-28 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns. He struggled with his accuracy early, often overthrowing receivers, but settled into a bit of a groove toward the end of the second quarter and then played fine the rest of the way.Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Stanton was playing a little fast early in the game.“He is so smart sometimes,” the coach said. “He knows where he’s going with it. He’s got to let the play develop, but I was really pleased with the running game, and especially the last (touchdown) drive.”With the help of an opportunistic defense and a dominant running game, any problems Stanton did have were minimized and ultimately not particularly costly.Arizona’s first two touchdowns came from short fields following turnovers. The Cardinals produced just three drives that lasted more than five plays and produced six passes that went for a first down.But he threw two touchdown passes, and when time ran out the Cardinals had more points than the 49ers.“Yeah, it feels great,” Stanton said of earning the win as a starter. “This is a huge team win. This is what we needed. That was my mindset all week. I felt good about it. I liked the gameplan. It’s tough going through a walk-through because you’re trying to visualize everything that’s going on but at the same time I really liked it.center_img Top Stories Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton (5) passes against the San Francisco 49ers during the second half of an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif., Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016. (AP Photo/Ben Margot) Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “I was on the same page as B.A. Once I got a chance to settle down and feel good about everything, I was very comfortable.”Stanton completed 7-of-20 passes in the first half and 4-of-8 in the second. He found the bulk of his success when throwing to Larry Fitzgerald, who caught six of the eight passes thrown his way for 81 yards and two touchdowns.Arians pointed out that Fitzgerald played more on the outside in this game because they felt his ability to pull off double moves could give the 49ers secondary some trouble, and it did.But all the double moves in the world would be useless without the throw going to the right guy in the right place, and while it wasn’t always pretty, Stanton was mostly effective.“Well, Drew did a great job today of getting us in the right plays, being a real sparkplug, inspiration in the huddle for guys,” Fitzgerald said. “We really fed off his energy. He made some great throws. He got out of duress a couple times when things broke down. He was able to extend some plays.“So, he really did a great job of managing the game in terms of not turning the ball over and when things weren’t there, just throw it away and our defense played outstanding.” Mathieu acknowledged there was some rust, and while he said he was ready to cut it loose and be his former self before the game, actually getting on the field and attempting to do that was a good thing.“I made it out of there alive — one play I gave up a touchdown, on the pick route, but other than that I felt like I played pretty well,” he said.Follow Adam Green on Twitter – / 31 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Time to get rid of guarantors president says updated

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades said Friday it was high time to get rid of the curse of the presence of third parties or those who want third parties controlling Cyprus, as he criticised those who blamed the Greek Cypriot side too for the failure of the talks.Speaking at a farming festival in Paralimni, Anastasiades said he was truly saddened when people tried to assign blame on the Greek Cypriots.“Who can argue that we could have accepted a solution with the continuation of Turkey’s rights of intervention but also worse, a permanent military base and permanent presence of a Turkish army division in Cyprus?” he said. “There are things you can be flexible and things that go beyond the boundaries of tolerance and acceptance.”It was the first time Anastasiades made reference to a division in relation with Turkey’s demand for troops to remain on the island.To date, the understanding was that Turkey wanted to keep 650 soldiers, whereas a division may comprise between 10,000 and 15,000 men.Asked about this on Twitter, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said Turkey’s position was for a force of 1,800 troops plus officers.It remained unclear however if the reference was a mistake.In his speech, Anastasiades reiterated that Turkey bore the responsibility for the deadlock in the talks, insisting in positions that were impossible for any Greek Cypriot to accept.“Because what we need, Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots, is confidence and security, and one’s security cannot constitute a threat to the other,” he said.The latest round of reunification talks at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana took place between June 28 and July 6 but again ended in deadlock over disagreements on security and guarantees.Both sides have since blamed each other for the collapse, while the Greek Cypriots have also censured UN special adviser Espen Barth Eide, accusing him of being biased and a liar.Anastasiades said various problems throughout the years had been caused by Cyprus’ guarantors.“It is high time to get rid of the curse of the presence of third parties or those who want third parties.”“We are a European state. Let us utilise the European principles and values to create conditions of growth for everyone in this country.”You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
