MLB payrolls dropped for 1st time since 2010

first_imgNEW YORK — Spending on Major League Baseball payrolls dropped last season for the first time since 2010, a decline attributable to drug and domestic violence suspensions and a player retiring at midseason.That’s according to figures compiled by the commissioner’s office and obtained by The Associated Press.Even a year with flat payrolls is unusual. The only previous drops since 2002 were by $3 million in 2010 and by $32 million in 2004.Teams combined to spend $4.23 billion on major league payroll last year, down $18 million.World Series champion Boston had the highest payroll for the first time since the free-agent era started in 1976 at $230 million. A record 24 teams had $100 million payrolls, and the Red Sox figure was the lowest for the top payroll since 2012.Ronald Blum, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Tamil Nadu fishermen seek urgent talks with Sri Lanka

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament last Thursday that bottom trawling by Indian fishermen is having an impact on the livelihood of fishermen in the North and East. Bottom trawling by Indian fishermen is a serious concern for Sri Lanka and the matter has been raised in Parliament as well. He said Tamil Nadu fishermen are prepared to sit down with their Sri Lankan counterparts to map out a time based solution top end the crisis.“We have had talks before with Sri Lankan fishermen but most often it is the businessmen who attend the talks and not the fishermen themselves. Some of these businessmen have their own agendas so the talks never go forward,” Emiret said.Emiret said that recently his association met Indian External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and urged her to take efforts to resolve the issue. Tamil Nadu fishermen have expressed the desire to hold urgent talks with Sri Lanka and reach a compromise in order to resolve the long standing fishing issue.Tamil Nadu Fishermen’s Association President S. Emiret told The Sunday Leader they are even willing to consider giving up bottom trawling if an alternative solution is provided to them. However Emiret noted that even some Sri Lankan fishermen engage in bottom trawling so it is unfair to only blame Indians.“Also don’t forget even Sri Lankan fishermen poach in Indian waters. So this is not just something to point fingers at us. We must discuss are resolve this issue,” he said. “We need to have three meals a day. The fishing industry feeds us as this is our job. We will look at alternative means if we really must give up bottom trawling to resolve this issue,” he said.Emiret also asserted that Tamil Nadu fishermen have no qualms with fishermen in the North and East and want to prevent the issue from hurting the relationship between both countries.When asked about the comments being made by politicians in Sri Lanka and India on the issue, Emiret said politicians look to take advantage of the issue and more often than not prevent the issue from reaching an end. However he said Tamil Nadu fishermen feel only direct talks with their counterparts will result in a solution acceptable to both sides. He said both governments need to understand that the issue affects the lives of ordinary people and so no one should play politics with the fishing dispute. read more

US durable goods orders up 48 per cent in October

US durable goods orders up 4.8 per cent in October WASHINGTON – Orders for big-ticket manufactured goods increased in October by the largest amount in a year, reflecting a surge in demand for commercial airplanes. The category that tracks business investment spending showed a far more modest advance, indicating this key category remains under stress.Orders for durable goods rose 4.8 per cent in October, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. That is the best showing since a similar advance in October 2015. The gain primarily reflected a 94.1 per cent jump in demand for commercial airplanes, an extremely volatile category.The category that tracks business investment plans was up a slight 0.4 per cent, erasing only a small part of a 1.4 per cent plunge in September. Business investment spending has been a drag on the economy this year, reflecting in part big cutbacks in the energy sector.So far this year, orders for nondefense capital goods excluding aircraft — the category used to track business investment — are down 4 per cent from the same period in 2015. This weakness in investment has held back overall growth this year.Economists said that the small rise in the investment category should strengthen further as the energy sector stabilizes following a big plunge.“Manufacturing is not booming, despite the headline today, but neither is it sliding into the recession some feared earlier this year,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. “We expect a gradual pickup in activity.”Economists believe the gradual gains in manufacturing will support a rebound for the overall economy in the second half of this year.Part of the optimism stems from a view that the plunge in energy investment, fueled by the sharp fall in energy prices, is coming to an end. The count of oil drilling rigs is up 49 per cent from the low hit in May. Manufacturing has also been hurt this year by a strong dollar, which makes U.S. goods less competitive in overseas markets.The economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, grew at a 2.9 per cent rate in the third quarter, a significant improvement after growth averaged just 1.1 per cent in the first half of the year.In October, orders for machinery edged up a slight 0.2 per cent, while demand for primary metals such as steel fell 0.1 per cent. Orders for computers rose 6.8 per cent. by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Nov 23, 2016 6:35 am MDT Last Updated Nov 23, 2016 at 10:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Prof recognized for archaeological research

Angus Smith has literally moved tons of soil looking for fragments of pottery to piece together our understanding of life in ancient Crete.The Department of Classics Associate Professor was recognized with the Faculty of Humanities Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Activity at the annual Humanities Research Institute (HRI) fall symposium Tuesday, Dec. 11.Associate Professor Angus Smith receives the Faculty of Humanities Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Activity from Associate Dean Mike Carter at the annual Humanities Research Institute fall symposium.Smith researches mortuary remains and ceramic analysis in the Bronze Age Aegean and is the Associate Director of Excavations for The Gournia Excavation Project in Crete. The international team of archaeologists excavated the Minoan town of Gournia from 2010 to 2014. Gournia was a significant Late Bronze Age (c. 1500 BCE) town, featuring cobbled streets, fortifications and a Minoan palace. It was a regional administrative centre and conducted trade for its products across the Aegean and Near East.Smith has been working at publishing the pottery finds from the site, including several deposits of pottery used during feasting, which he presented as part of the HRI symposium.“Although spending summers in Greece is certainly not a chore, the excavation, processing and analysis of literal tons of soil and artifacts, and the preparation for publication of a complex archaeological site can be a daunting task,” said Smith.Archaeological fieldwork requires a large team of archaeologists, scholars, students and volunteers, both in the field and in preparing work for publication.“Without my team members, including many Brock students who have helped as students and served as research assistants over the years, my research would not have been possible,” he said.Smith’s co-authored volume, Ayia Sotira: A Mycenaean Chamber Tomb Cemetery in the Nemea Valley, Greece is a publication of the results of the excavation of six Mycenaean chamber tombs in the Nemea Valley of the Argolid region in Greece. The work includes analysis of artifacts including pottery, jewelry, figurines, metal objects, skeletal remains and botanical remains.His publications also include work on pottery and society at the Late Minoan III settlement and cemetery of Mochlos, on Crete, and he is currently working on a project involving the study of legacy material from unpublished excavations of Minoan tombs on Crete.Smith is also President of the Canadian Institute in Greece and President of the Niagara Peninsula Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America.His research has been funded by the Institute for Aegean Prehistory, SSHRC, and other sources including Brock’s Humanities Research Institute. read more

US moves to strip citizenship from two war criminals

first_imgSALEM, Ore. — Federal authorities on Wednesday began legal proceedings to strip U.S. citizenship from two Bosnians, including one living in Oregon, for war crimes including executing civilians during that country’s civil war in the 1990s.The move by the U.S. Justice Department comes years after Rasema Handanovic and Edin Dzeko were extradited and later convicted by courts in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2011. After serving her sentence, Handanovic returned to Beaverton, Ore., according to a statement from the Justice department, while Dzeko has not yet been released by Bosnian authorities.The department filed denaturalization lawsuits against the pair in federal courts in Oregon and the District of Columbia Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately clear if Handanovic has an attorney in Oregon, and information about an attorney for Dzeko was not immediately available.Members of the same military unit during the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990’s, the pair were convicted of executing civilians and unarmed soldiers during a massacre in the tiny mountain village of Trusina.The larger conflict between Bosnia’s three main groups — Muslims, Serbs and Croats — lasted from 1992 until 1995, killed 260,000 people and displaced forced 1.8 million more to flee. Muslims and Croats were allied against the Serbs at the start of the war, but they became enemies when Croat forces sought to capture territory held by the Bosnian army.last_img read more

Napoli are Juventus biggest title rival – Ventura

first_imgFormer Italy national team coach Giampiero Ventura believes that Napoli are the closest title rival to Juventus in the Serie A this season, with Inter Milan and AC Milan still rebuilding their squad.Juventus have been dominant in Italy, having won the league title for the past seven years in a row and needed 95 points to finish above Napoli last season.According to Football Italia, former Italian coach Giampiero Ventura has been paying close attention to the title race in Serie A this season and has given his opinion.“There’s been a lot of talk about the anti-Juventus, but it’s still the Napoli that got 91 points,” Ventura said on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.Mario Mandzukic, JuventusJuventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“[Carlo] Ancelotti is not only a great Coach but an intelligent person, he’s not throwing away the work of his predecessor [Maurizio Sarri], then week-by-week he’ll put in something of his own.“Inter have made great signings but, as happened with Milan last year, that doesn’t guarantee you results.“No-one imagined they’d take one point from two games.”last_img read more

Fast response wary public keeping Alaska wildfires down

first_imgAggressive response and the public’s adherence to good fire practices are keeping forest fires down in Alaska despite tinderbox conditions in much of the state.Through Sunday the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center reported 159 fires this year but fewer than seven square miles burned.Unseasonably warm and dry temperatures coupled with grasses that remain brown from lack of moisture are making spring fire danger high.The Yukon Flats and surrounding uplands, Fortymile River country, the Deltana-Tanana flats, and the Eastern Alaska Range remain under a red flag warning watch.Fire agency spokesman Tim Mowry says two air tankers, a water-scooping aircraft and 16 smokejumpers from Boise, Idaho, were moved to Alaska last week because of the continued danger.He says the public is to be credited for following burn laws.last_img read more

Walker signs opioid addiction prevention bill

first_imgGovernor Bill Walker on Tuesday signed into law House Bill 159, which aims to help prevent opioid addiction before it starts. (Casey Grove/Alaska Public Media)Governor Bill Walker on Tuesday signed into law House Bill 159, which aims to help prevent opioid addiction before it starts.Listen nowThe law puts new limits on opioids like capping new prescriptions at seven days-worth of pills, and requires training about abuse for medical practitioners.In February, Walker issued a disaster declaration for Alaska’s ongoing opioid epidemic.On Tuesday, the governor was at a homeless youth center in Wasilla for the bill signing. He said the the multi-pronged legislation is a good first step.“The most important step is the next step, whatever that is. This is something that, to get on top of the situation, you have to have an action plan and each day take a step you didn’t take the day before.”Walker said more needs to be done, adding that at least 70 people have died in Alaska from overdoses attributed to prescription painkillers and heroin so far this year.The state’s ongoing effort to prevent opioid addiction and overdoses falls under the purview of a team Walker assembled.The state’s public health director, Doctor Jay Butler, leads that team and says prescriptions are only one part of the problem.“Things that we still need to do address access to treatment for people with addiction, undoing some of the stigma that is associated with a variety of addictions, and then also getting into the more fundamental questions, such as how do we mitigate and prevent adverse childhood experiences, which we know is one of the drivers that puts people at risk for substance abuse and addiction,” Butler said.When asked about the U.S. Senate’s vote on healthcare today, Walker responded by saying that repealing the Affordable Care Act without legislation to replace it would likely make it harder for Alaskans to get access to substance abuse treatment.Walker said he will not support any move that will hurt Alaskans and is staying in close contact with the state’s congressional delegation.“I don’t have a rear view mirror,” Walker said. “Today is the vote it is, but I want to continue to stay in close contact with them, which they’ve been very good about keeping in contact with my office, with me personally, about the legislation, because, you know, at the end of the day, the states are going to have to deal with this.”Asked about how Alaska’s senators split on the vote and what his message is for the congressional delegation, Walker said he hopes to learn about what will be included in any upcoming healthcare legislation through his reports from the delegation.last_img read more

Proposed visitor center for Akumal Bay lacks funding

first_imgTulum, Q.R. — The proposed creation of a visitor center and museum for Akumal Bay requires an investment of 10 million peso as well as one hectare of land, say officials.The proposal, which was made by the Secretariat of Environment and Ecology (Sema) for the creation of the Visitor Center and Museum of the Sea Turtle, requires an investment of 10 million peso that would be managed through the Sedetur, with resources of Magic Proder.The project also requires an area of one hectare that is also being managed, according to information from Sema’s secretary, Alfredo Arellano Guillermo.The Sea Turtle Visitor and Museum Center is a complementary proposal to address the need to organize the tourist-recreational activity in Akumal Bay and in particular with the turtle swim. It is a proposal of the three levels of government, federation, state and municipality.The proposal was raised before service providers and permit holders of swimming with turtles in one of the last meetings that have taken place with hoteliers.The goal is to meet the need for a control site for the departure of the turtle swimming tours while at the same time, making things such as bathrooms, parking, museum and information available to visitors.This would allow rotation to be established so that all service providers have the same opportunities, he added.To complete this project, it requires approximately one hectare of land, an area on which “we already have a proposal on land owned by the state government”.“We are looking for resources through the Ministry of Tourism (Sedetur). The funds for their execution will be managed with resources from the Sustainable Tourism Regional Development Program and Magic Towns (Prodermagico), for an investment of about 10 million peso.”However, the proposal faces problems with some companies in regard to permission to swim with turtles, noting they feel the proposal is intended to close access to the bay of Akumal.As for bringing order, leaders such as the Federation of Cooperatives of Akumal, which brings together 11 organizations, say they agree but not at the expense of giving up the access road that has been used by the residents of Akumal.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

More engine woes for Qantas

first_imgAustralia’s iconic airline is in trouble again after an engine fault was discovered on one of its superjumbo jets at a factory in France. A faulty oil tube is said to be the cause of the problem Qantas is facing in regards to the new Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine. The engine fault has caused delays in the transfer of aircraft ownership, as Qantas awaits the delivery of another A380 this month. Qantas’ fleet manager is reluctant the aircraft will be operational anytime soon. “We will be lucky to see it in service by Christmas. “One step forward and two back! We can’t take a trick in getting more aircraft into the air and back into service,” he said in an email to pilots earlier this week.Rolls-Royce is also under the hammer as lawyers from the engine manufacturing company failed to appear in Federal Court this week to hear Qantas’ compensation claims.

Not in Week 4.“I think, number one, they’re learning,” Steve Wilks said. “They’re getting ahead of the curve, particularly in their rookie year. A lot of guys sit back and they come back their second year.“Mason is doing a tremendous job, unfortunately what happened early with A.Q. [Shipley]. The same thing with Chase, and all of a sudden you see Christian emerging and doing some great things. And all of a sudden now Josh has his opportunity to step in.”Regardless of how quickly any or all of the rookies learn the ins and outs of the NFL game, the future is now for Arizona. If these four gain valuable experience that helps them in 2019 and beyond, there’s suddenly some tangible value to the rest of this currently disappointing season after an 0-3 start.And if they can jump-start the offense and win a few more games right now, even better. TEMPE, Ariz. — This is what a youth movement looks like.Sure, the headlines this week are focused on quarterback Josh Rosen making his first NFL start. And rightfully so.In a season that hasn’t offered much in the way of optimism for Arizona Cardinals fans, there’s at least some hope when watching the guy touted as the franchise quarterback of the future.Thing is, there are always growing pains with a rookie signal caller. That’s to be expected. And in Rosen’s case, he’s stepping into an offense where he’s not the only player lacking experience. Far from it. Still, the attention will fall largely on Rosen. That’s the nature of the position and a byproduct of the hype that surrounded the UCLA product on draft night.While it’s not ideal to be relying on a rookie four games into his head coaching career, Wilks is intrigued by the upside.“I’m very excited,” he acknowledged. “That’s why I didn’t hesitate the other night as far as putting (Rosen) in. He’s shown the ability to be able to come in and command the huddle. Again, he’s smart. The accuracy, the arm strength is there. I can’t wait to see him play this week.”He won’t get an argument from the fans on that one. 12 Comments   Share   center_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “It was one of those years where, as an offensive staff, you’re going ‘OK good, keep going. Let’s go, one more. We’ll keep going.’ Coaches, you know, we want as many players as we can get. So you always look at that draft. So it was good.”For his part, Rosen agrees that this could be an impressive group, and he’s not surprised so many of his first-year counterparts are already playing significant roles.“I think we’ve got a really good draft class,” he said. “I think that’s kind of where sports in general are heading. I think a lot of younger guys are playing, at the high school level, at the college level, in the NFL. So we’re taking our opportunity and running as far and as fast as we can with it.”Edmonds agreed, saying that’s simply life in the NFL now.“I don’t know man, I feel like in today’s league, nowadays, I feel like rookies are more and more expected to just perform right away,” the running back said.That’s especially true in Arizona’s case.Yes, this is still a team that will probably have to lean heavily on its defense in 2018. Obviously, the Cardinals have established star power with David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. But a huge chunk of the offense isn’t just new to the desert, it’s new to the league. “It’s really awesome,” Rosen said. “I’ve got special relationships with all of them.
