Rose Still Eyes Hall of Fame

first_imgLAS VEGAS — Pete Rose insisted Dec. 15 he is a changed person even if he still likes to bet on an occasional baseball game.Baseball’s career hits leader said he was disappointed at not being allowed back in the game but held out hope he could still one day be inducted into the Hall of Fame.“It would be nice to have the opportunity to go to the Hall of Fame,” Rose said. “My whole life has been a Hall of Fame life just by the association with the teammates I had.”At a news conference fronting his restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip, Rose said he couldn’t rewrite history but still believes even at age 74 that he can one day be back in baseball. He said he was sorry for his mistakes of the past, which included betting on games while with the Cincinnati Reds.Rose said he believes Rob Manfred will be a great Commissioner, but that Manfred was put in a tough spot in having to rule on Rose’s reinstatement 26 years into a lifetime ban.He also said his meeting with Manfred earlier this year — where he first denied still betting on baseball and then admitted he did — could have gone better.“I’m a good guy, to be honest with you,” Rose said. “I tried to be as honest as I could with the Commissioner, but I made some mistakes and I clarified them. Some of his questions, though, I kind of panicked.”Rose was contrite and somewhat upbeat in offering his first comments since Manfred on Dec. 14 rejected his application for reinstatement.But he refused to be drawn into the debate of whether players linked to steroids should be allowed in the Hall of Fame when anyone on the permanently excluded list — Rose is currently the only living person on it — cannot be on a Hall of Fame ballot.He also would not comment on Manfred’s decision to keep him out of baseball partly because he still does gamble on baseball while at the same time Major League Baseball has a stake in the daily fantasy site DraftKings.“You can make that evaluation. I’m not a DraftKings guy. I’m not an online guy,” said Rose, who had 4,256 hits in a career that stretched from 1963-86. “I just try to have fun and live my life and have some enjoyable moments.”Rose spoke on an outdoor patio fronting the Strip, where a crowd of a few hundred onlookers gathered behind the television cameras to watch the spectacle. At one point the crowd started chanting “Let him in, Let him in,” getting a wide smile from Rose in reaction.While Manfred had the final say in whether Rose could be reinstated, he made a point of noting that his decision was separate from that of the Hall of Fame, which in 1991 adopted a rule keeping anyone on the permanently ineligible list off the ballot.Rose was joined by one of his sons and flanked by two attorneys, one of whom argued that Rose should be allowed on the Hall ballot.“He has been punished and he has been punished severely from being banned from the sport he loves,” attorney Mark Rosenbaum said, noting that other players with character flaws have gotten in the Hall of Fame. “It is the Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Saints.”Rose agreed to the ban in August 1989 after an investigation for Major League Baseball by lawyer John Dowd found Rose placed numerous bets on the Reds to win from 1985-87 while playing for and managing the team.The ban prevents Rose from working for any major league team or minor league affiliate, but he is allowed to make ceremonial appearances with the commissioner’s permission and may work for third parties such as Fox, which hired Rose this year as a baseball analyst.“I’m in control of my life now,” Rose said. “I watch baseball, talk on Fox and talk baseball to anyone who wants to talk about it.”Rose acknowledged he hasn’t always been in control of his life, including a period in the late 1980s when he said he gambled way too much. He still likes to place bets, he said, but they are not for big money and are perfectly legal in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas.He’s at peace with Manfred’s decision, he said, but still yearns for a relationship with the game he has loved all his life.“All I look forward to being some day is a friend of baseball,” Rose said. “I want baseball and Pete Rose to be friends. I want to say I’m not an outsider looking in. I have grandkids, and they want their grandpa to be associated with baseball.”He is, said Rose, not a complicated person. “I’m a baseball player. I’m a baseball person,” he said. “That’s never going to change.”(TIM DAHLBERG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

I’m now playing with a lot of confidence,” he told Sporza after bagging a brace in a 3-2 Europa League win for Dortmund over Atalanta on Thursday.“Sitting on the bench, score a goal and then back to the bench is quite difficult to deal with for an attacker.”Batshuayi’s loan deal does not include the option for a permanent move to be made at the end of the season.That means he could still have a future at Chelsea, although he is giving little thought to that scenario at present.Pressed on whether he is aware of the Blues monitoring his progress in Germany, Batshuayi added: “I don’t know if Conte was watching my game.“They are focusing on the Premier League and have an important Champions League tie next week.

Finance Minister Announces Details of Increase in Rate of Equity Tax Credit

first_imgFinance Minister Graham Steele, today, Sept. 16, announced the details of a commitment to increase the Equity Tax Credit to help small and large businesses in communities throughout Nova Scotia. The rate will be increase to 35 per cent of the value of eligible investments, from 30 per cent, starting Jan. 1. The maximum annual claim will rise to $17,500 from $15,000. “Boosting the Equity Tax Credit meets our commitment to promote investment in our communities,” said Mr. Steele. “The higher rate is expected to provide over $1 million in new incentives to support investments by Nova Scotians in local enterprises.” Boosting the equity tax credit is one element of government’s plan to support jobs that Nova Scotia’s economy needs, the minister added. The Equity Tax Credit is offered to individuals who invest in Nova Scotian small businesses, co-operatives, and community economic development initiatives. Since its introduction in 1994, about $160 million has been invested in Nova Scotia enterprises through the Equity Tax Credit. The credit is projected to provide an incentive of $6.8 million in 2009 to support investments in communities. With a higher credit rate, the incentive is expected to rise to $7.9 million in 2010. With the increase, an investor will receive a tax credit of 35 per cent of the investment made to a maximum annual investment amount of $50,000. The credit that can be claimed in a single taxation year cannot exceed $17,500. Receipts are issued by the Department of Finance and must be submitted with an individual’s T1 Income Tax return for the tax year. The Equity Tax Credit will be extended to December 31, 2011.last_img read more

US Attacker at Michigan airport was on mission to kill Americans

first_imgFLINT, Mich. – A U.S. prosecutor says a Montreal man accused of stabbing a police officer at a Michigan airport was willing to die if he could have seized the victim’s gun and attacked others.Jurors heard opening statements Wednesday in the trial of Amor Ftouhi, a Tunisian who was living in Montreal. He’s charged with three crimes at the Flint airport in 2017, including an act of terrorism.Federal prosecutor Jules DePorre said Ftouhi saw himself as a martyr who wanted to “kill Americans until he himself was killed.” Ftouhi’s lawyer didn’t make an opening statement. Ftouhi says he is innocent.The trial opened Tuesday with jury selection.The weapon allegedly used in the attack will apparently be shown to jury members. The federal prosecutor received authorization from a judge to bring two weapons into the courtroom, a hunting knife and a machete.The government says Ftouhi legally entered the U.S. at Champlain, N.Y. in June 2017 and attacked Lt. Jeff Neville five days later at the Flint airport, about 80 kilometres northwest of Detroit. Neville survived.Witnesses at the airport reported that the suspect yelled “Allahu Akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great.” The attacker also made reference to people killed in Syria, in Iraq and in Afghanistan, according to information reported by the FBI.Ftouhi, 50, has been detained since his arrest June 21, 2017. Married and the father of three children, he had been living in Canada for 10 years and worked occasionally as a truck driver. He holds Canadian and Tunisian citizenship.last_img read more

Israels restrictions violate its international obligations UN envoy says

During a meeting held in the Foreign Minister’s Tel Aviv office, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Terje Roed-Larsen, referred in particular to the blockage this morning of a convoy of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which was trying to reach the south of Gaza.Describing that incident, a UN spokesman in New York said UNRWA Commissioner-General Peter Hansen had been blocked at an Israeli check point for an hour and a half as he was on his way from Gaza to the Khan Yunis and Rafah refugee camps “to get a first-hand look at the recent damage from the fighting which took place there.”Spokesman Manoel de Almeida e Silva told reporters that Mr. Hansen and his party “were eventually allowed to proceed after UN staff contacted officials at the highest level at Israeli Ministry of Defence in Tel Aviv.”In his meeting with the Foreign Minister later that day, Mr. Roed-Larsen stressed the critical importance of UNRWA’s work and expressed his full support for the efforts of its Commissioner-General.The discussion covered a range of issues, including security questions, political issues, the economic crisis in the Palestinian territories and the humanitarian situation.Foreign Minister Peres invited Commissioner-General Hansen and Mr. Roed-Larsen to meet with him tomorrow to discuss a full range of issues related to humanitarian access.Reached by phone in Gaza, a spokesman for Mr. Roed-Larsen told the UN News Service that the meeting would take place. read more

1st day of Penn Station repairs crowds delays mostly OK

1st day of Penn Station repairs: crowds, delays, mostly OK MTA employees direct Long Island Rail Road commuters as they transfer to a subway station at the Hunterspoint Ave. station in the Queens borough of New York, Monday, July 10, 2017. Amtrak has begun extensive repairs Monday to tracks and signals in Penn Station, which it owns and operates. For several hundred thousand commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit, as well as Amtrak passengers who ride between Boston and Washington, D.C., that means fewer trains during peak periods, the result of track closures to accommodate the repairs. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Commuters in and out of New York City handled Monday’s first day of extensive repair work to the nation’s busiest train station without any major issues.Hundreds of thousands of commuters dealt with some confusion, a bit of overcrowding and some delays at the start of what figures to be an arduous two-month period.While some seem bewildered by a new routine devised to accommodate the major repairs to the tracks and signals at Penn Station, others said the commute wasn’t much different than normal and the transit agencies were exhaling.“A lot of confusion and too many people gathered in one space,” Lex Marshall, 35, of Morristown, New Jersey, said at New Jersey Transit’s Hoboken Terminal. “Everybody’s just bumping into each other, pushing each other, to get to their destination.”Jesse Krakow, of South Orange, New Jersey, who transferred through Hoboken, described being packed “like sardines” on a Port Authority Trans-Hudson train that stopped several times between stations as it waited for other trains up ahead. He said his trip took about 45 minutes longer than normal.Elsewhere, some took advantage of alternative modes of transportation put in place by the Long Island Rail Road and NJ Transit to accommodate overflow due to reduced rush-hour train service.Vicki Kapotis, of West Orange, rode the ferry for the first time from Hoboken in the morning and took a shuttle bus to her job at a private equity firm. She planned on taking a PATH train home from a station a long block from Penn Station.“The morning was good, it has gone well so far,” she said. “I am a little nervous because NJ Transit was kind of empty this morning. I don’t know if a lot of people were staying home. We’ll see what happens by the end of the week.”The work was initially scheduled for nights and weekends over a few years, but two recent derailments and other problems that spotlighted the station’s aging infrastructure convinced Amtrak to accelerate the schedule.For commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and NJ Transit — as well as Amtrak passengers who ride between Boston and Washington, D.C. — the Penn Station work means fewer trains during peak periods.The station handles about 1,300 daily train movements. Roughly 600,000 people pass through each day on the three railroads and on New York City subways.NJ Transit spokesman Charles Ingoglia declared the morning commute a success, but said there was room for improvement, including directing people to a less crowded PATH entrance.“We’re pleased with what we saw,” he said. “Our customers seem to have done their homework.”The work is scheduled to last through the end of August. When it’s completed, rail riders will benefit from increased reliability from the up-to-date equipment in and around the station, but could still fall prey to other problems, such as electrical wire failures in the tunnel between New York and New Jersey, and signal and track problems in northern New Jersey east of Newark.Those problems will have to wait for the completion of the Gateway project, which calls for building a second rail tunnel under the Hudson River, repairing damage in the existing tunnel from 2012’s Superstorm Sandy and making substantial improvements on the New Jersey side and in Penn Station.That work is expected to take at least another decade to complete, although federal funding for the project is in question after President Donald Trump proposed changing a federal grant program that was supposed to be used for it.Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Cory Booker called on the Trump administration to honour that commitment at a news conference near the spot on Manhattan’s west side Monday where preliminary work has already begun.Booker said it’s time for Trump to “put up or shut up.”While Monday’s commute had gone about as well as it could for most, the real test for the “new normal” won’t come until the weather, equipment problems or police activity somewhere along the train line interrupts service.“The measure is how good are you when things are bad,” Ingoglia said.__Neumeister reported from Hoboken, New Jersey. by David Porter And Larry Neumeister, The Associated Press Posted Jul 10, 2017 2:48 am MDT Last Updated Jul 10, 2017 at 4:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Liverpool Vs Arsenal Klopp says Unai Emery has won enough

first_imgLiverpool and Arsenal will clash for the first time since losing the 2016 Europa League final and Klopp believes Unai Emery has won enough in his career.Unai Emery has won three successive Europa League titles and five major trophies while at Paris St Germain which brings about the respect his current 13-match unbeaten run deserves.“All people in football knew how good he is but I am not sure all Arsenal fans were over the moon at first when they heard it would be Emery,” said Klopp via Irishexaminer.“But that’s England a little bit, you want the poster boys. Unai was in France and before that in Spain in a smaller club, so you can go a bit under the radar.“Not for all the people in football, though. I saw yesterday that he won eight titles in two or three years. That’s pretty big.”“You’re giving managers a bit too much credit if you think we have that much influence. He couldn’t defend us in the first half, we had to help with that by missing our chances,” he added.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We have to check the dressing room at Basel again about what happened in there because the game changed immediately when we came back out.“We had a big influence on that game. It was a question of momentum; they had it, we lost it. We had it in the wrong half of the game I would say, in the first half. We didn’t score often enough.“They had it in the second half and we couldn’t fight back in the 63rd game of the season, there was not a lot of fuel left in the tank.“I don’t think he had a lot of influence in the first half and I couldn’t have any influence in the second half,  that was the problem of that day.“They won, we lost, that’s already history.”“It doesn’t look like that will change. They score a lot of goals and are really good offensively,” said Klopp.last_img read more

Ana Marie Cox

first_imgCox has promoted her reporting and commentary as its own media network, utilizing all of the requisite social media tools—Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pandora and Flickr.More recently, she has experimented with an embeddable liveblog and chat feed for coverage of political events—including the inauguration and Proposition 8 hearings—and a personal podcast.The Cox brand has carved out so much of a following that she received “a good seat assignment” at the first presidential news conference of the new Obama administration. And, not surprisingly, Cox uses her access to mock White House and Senate briefings on her popular Twitter feed, which has more than 200,000 followers.“Okay, am in,” Cox wrote after a recent tussle with treasury secretary Timothy Geithner’s publicist before a press conference. “I AM a ‘News organization!’”VITAL STATS: After Radar folded, Cox raised over $8,000 to stay embedded with the McCain campaign. It was an interesting year for Ana Marie Cox in 2008. The ex-Wonkette-turned-Time political blogger, who rose in the ranks to become the Washington editor of Time.com, decamped for Radar in September to cover the election. When Radar folded for the third time in October, Cox was left with credentials to cover the campaign (she was embedded with the McCain camp) but no one to pay for her travels.Undeterred, she launched an online pledge drive. (For $250, Cox would pose your question to a senior McCain advisor; for $1,000, you’d get a “post-election dinner debriefing.”) Cox raised more than $8,000 “from total strangers amused by my not entirely straightforward political reporting,” she says, and was able to cover the rest of the campaign for her personal blog. That led to a regular column on the Daily Beast, Tina Brown’s fledgling Web site, a gig as the national correspondent for Air America, the liberal radio network, and a guest spot on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.But where Cox really shines is online, where she’s perfectly suited for the frenetic pace of the Web while skewering the special interests of Washington.last_img read more

8 Industries Being Disrupted by Virtual Reality

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. July 21, 2017 For the past several years we’ve been told that the age of virtual reality is upon us. Tech companies have introduced new hardware and updated systems to much fanfare, but so far have not been able to turn widespread interest into practice.Virtual reality, and now augmented reality, are often seen as novelties: cool to play with in a store or at that one tech-obsessed friend’s house, but most of us are not putting on clunky headsets or Google’s cardboard system and walking out the door.However, it’s finally looking like the VR and AR industries are on the cusp of going mainstream, as industries start to figure out how to implement transformative technology in the user experience. These 10 industries are pioneering ways to integrate VR and AR tech and offer customers more opportunities to explore products and services.1. Real EstateLooking for a new home or apartment can feel like taking on a second job. Between endlessly checking listing updates to taking time to visit every open house on the market, buying (or renting) a new place can be a daunting and tiresome task.But what if you could experience all that a house has to offer without leaving your home? Real estate companies are toying with VR solutions that offer prospective buyers the chance to walk through a property and survey every room, hallway, nook and cranny without actually leaving their own homes.Related: Real Estate, Movies, Retail: VR Is Exploding. The Opportunities for Entrepreneurs Are Huge.2. ZoosGoing to zoos gives people the opportunity to experience wildlife up close, albeit behind a sturdy partition. However, zoo trips often spark more questions than they answer. Most zoo experiences consist of visitors wandering from exhibit to exhibit and reading about the species on small placards and in outdated pamphlets.Guru is an app that is seeking to redefine the zoo experience by bringing the animals and their habitats to (virtual) life. The app allows users to choose customized audio experiences that share facts about specific animals, as well as behind-the-scenes videos and augmented-reality portals into the actual habitats and lifestyles of animals in the wild.Related: 12 Amazing Uses of Virtual Reality3. FashionEvery millennial woman remembers the first time she saw Cher Horowitz’s closet in Clueless — it was a magical moment. The idea of being able to test clothes and match outfits without actually having to try them on resonated with an entire generation.Now, over 20 years since Clueless sparked an obsession, Cher’s closet, or at least the idea behind it, has become reality. Gap recently unveiled a VR solution that enables customers to digitally “try on” pieces within its collection. Other retailers are bringing VR headsets into stores to allow visitors to feel as though they’re sitting in the front row at the designer’s latest fashion-week presentation.Related: Virtual Reality Is About to Change Your Business4. HospitalityThe internet has made the world a smaller place. Thanks to programs like Google Earth, people can walk pathways in Santorini one minute and find themselves at a busy Sydney intersection the next. More travel organizations are tapping into consumers’ love for virtual exploration.Expedia recently announced a new VR-based initiative that will allow travelers to “step inside” hotel-room listings before making their destination decisions.Related: Why This Restaurant Chain Has Started Using VR to Train Employees5. MedicineThe world of medicine is exploring several avenues and uses for VR to help doctors and patients. Some doctors are now wearing VR headsets in the operating room to give medical students a more in-depth look at the surgical procedures.Additionally, hospitals are experimenting with VR as a means of making patients feel more comfortable. For example, VisitU, an emerging Dutch company, has created virtual glasses to give children at hospitals the chance to experience life at home or in the classroom, even though they are bedridden.Related: VRcade: Be the First to Open One in Your Town6. Entertainment and FilmSince Hollywood’s inception, film studios and production companies have been searching for new ways to make their projects more engaging and lifelike. Now, with virtual technology, film studios have the opportunity to transform the viewing experience from passive to participatory.Companies like Within are gaining the attention and support of major studios because their technology creates fully immersive viewer experiences that, until recently, Hollywood could only dream of.Related: Google: 180-Degree Video Is the Future of VR7. FitnessMany people have a hard time self-motivating when it comes to fitness. It can also be difficult to carve out the time to travel to a gym or fitness studio to take a class. Thanks to emerging VR programs, those wanting to get in shape no longer have to sacrifice their time.Startups like Icaros are creating fitness solutions that take the boredom out of getting fit. These systems allow users to feel as though they’re actually climbing a rock wall or boxing an opponent, when in fact they haven’t left their living rooms.8. AutomotiveHistorically, the automotive industry has needed a physical shopping experience to stay afloat. Before people are willing to make huge investments in new vehicles, they usually want to test the car out for themselves. For this reason, the automotive industry has struggled to find ways to connect with younger generations. Not only are millennials and Gen Zers supporters of the ride-sharing economy; they’re also digitally driven shoppers. Now, automobile makers like Ford are introducing VR experiences intended to give shoppers a real sense of a car’s interior and create a strong enough virtual experience to encourage them to visit a dealership and test drive the real thing.

Reform training sought for Singapore teen over blog video

first_imgSINGAPORE (AP) — Prosecutors in Singapore say they are seeking reform training for a teenager who is refusing probation and who again made public the video and blog posts a court deemed offensive earlier this month.The court on May 12 found Amos Yee, 16, had offended Christians in a YouTube video and had transmitted online an obscene image of Singapore’s founding leader Lee Kuan Yew and Britain’s Margaret Thatcher. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Comments   Share   How do cataracts affect your vision? How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Sponsored Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Top Stories He initially agreed to take down the two offending posts and to cooperate with arrangements to serve probation, but then failed to attend scheduled interviews and failed to return home by times stipulated on a trial basis by his probation officers. Court documents shown to The Associated Press revealed that Yee’s parents declined to meet with the officers, saying there was no need to do so since Yee himself “was not keen on probation.”According to the court documents, Yee had told his assigned probation officer that he did not want to be placed on probation. Last Thursday, his case investigation officer discovered that Yee had made his offending video and blog post publicly viewable once again, actions which deputy public prosecutor Hay Hung Chun said were contemptuous of court.In a statement shared with media Wednesday by the Attorney General’s Chambers, Hay said Yee “is clearly a misguided youth who seeks attention by deliberately posting provocative content, who has no insight into his offending behavior, and who is likely to keep repeating this pattern of conduct.”Hay recommended reform training because jail time or a fine would not rehabilitate him. Yee may be jailed while his suitability for reform training is assessed, however. Yee’s defense counsel asked for time to speak with the teenager and his parents, and District Judge Jasvender Kaur is likely to decide on Yee’s next steps when he next appears in court on Tuesday.Reform training in Singapore is for convicted offenders between 16 and 18 who have been assessed as unsuitable for probation. They are housed in a training center without adult inmates for a set time. Yee, who turns 17 in October, would have term lasting at least 18 months, if the judge accepts the prosecutors’ recommendation.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

South Korea sends 2 North Korean fishermen back home

The ministry official said those three fishermen were receiving resettlement training. North Korea had been demanding that the South send back all five fishermen, whose damaged boat was found drifting in waters near South Korea’s Ulleung island on July 4.The two Koreas are still technically at war because the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.Tensions between the countries have increased recently over the opening of a U.N. office in Seoul tasked with monitoring human rights in North Korea, and the North’s detainment of several South Koreans, including two who were sentenced to life in prison last month on charges of spying for the South.Copyright © The Associated Press.
