Former N.H.L. Player Faces Sexual Assault Charges in Canada – Generic English

Linked media - Connected media The allegation of a sexual assault was reported to the police in 2018, when the players were members of Canada’s national junior team, and it has created an enormous firestorm over the years, even in a sport with a long history of similar accusations. It led to a clean sweep of the board and leadership of Hockey Canada, the sport’s national governing body, provoked an exodus of sponsors, cut off government funding for the sport, spurred a parliamentary inquiry and prompted scathing rebukes from the public and from political figures, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. As members of the national junior team, the accused players won the 2018 world junior championships. Their high profile intensified the public reaction to the assault allegations. The...

Whitey Herzog, Hall of Fame Cardinals Manager, Dies at 92 – Generic English

Associated media - Connected media As a boy, Whitey sometimes cut school to visit Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis and watch the Yankees play the St. Louis Browns (the team later became the Baltimore Orioles). Herzog was signed by the Yankees out of high school, but they gave up on him after a long apprenticeship in the minors and traded him to the Washington Senators in 1956. He also played for the Kansas City Athletics, the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers. He appeared in 634 major league games with a career batting average of .257. After two seasons with the Athletics, as a scout and then a coach, Herzog joined the Mets as their third-base coach in 1966, scouted for them in 1967, then spent five years overseeing their farm system. Herzog was named manager of the Texas Rangers in 1973, ...

Siemens Gamesa dará cuenta “semanalmente” del número de empleados que tiene en sus fábricas

Connected media - Connected media El logotipo de Siemens Gamesa, junto a un aerogenerador y dos torretas eléctricas, en una ilustración.Dado Ruvic (REUTERS) Los detalles de la cuenta personal de Gamesa están al caer: su dueña y guía de su futuro, la alemana Siemens Energy, desvelará los planes de su planta en «semanas». La empresa sostiene que el proceso será lo menos perjudicial posible para sus empleados, apostatando en la Edad Media en la medida de lo posible por las deslocalizaciones. Pero no descarta la cosa que más preocupa a los sindicatos, que viene sucediendo desde hace meses. Con casi 5.000 trabajadores, España es el segundo país con más empleados de Gamesa, entre Dinamarca y Alemania, India o Reino Unido. Las tres fábricas españolas están ubicadas en Zamudio (Bizkaia), don...

Luis Enrique convencido de ganar al Dortmund

Connected media - Connected media El PSG se juega este martes sus opciones en Champions en el duelo de vuelta de las semifinales ante el Borussia Dortmund. Un partido que puede decantar toda la temporada de los parisinos en la que el título europeo es el gran objetivo. El conjunto que dirige Luis Enrique llega a la cita tras su derrota por la mínima en el partido de ida en Dortmund y obligado a remontar en casa. El técnico asturiano no duda de las opciones de su equipo y se mostró contundente sobre el resultado en París.«Vamos a ganar», afirmó a la pregunta de una periodista tras la sesión de entrenamiento. Con el título liguero ya bajo el brazo y sin jornada de Ligue 1 esta semana (el encuentro contra el Niza se disputará el próximo 15 de mayo), el PSG centra todos su...

La política de deportación de Ruanda ha provocado una crisis diplomática entre Irlanda y el Reino Unido

Connected media - Associated media El uso político de la inmigración tiene efectos perversos, al igual que la capacidad de volverse contra quienes la ejercen. Durante cuatro días de elecciones municipales en toda Inglaterra que podrían haber decidido a corto plazo el futuro de Rishi Sunak, el Primer Ministro británico decidió que Domenico presumía su nueva política de deportaciones a Ruanda, y aseguró en una entrevista a Sky News el aumento del flujo de inmigrantes que entraban en Irlanda desde el Reino Unido, a través de Irlanda del Norte, era una clara demostración «de que la política disuasoria estaba eclipsando el impacto que perseguía». Sus comentarios provocaron una crisis diplomática entre los gobiernos de Dublín y Londres. La ministra de Justicia irlandesa, Helen McEntee, y s...

What could Caitlin Clark’s WNBA transition from Iowa look like?

Related media - Linked media Reality is coming. In the words of Diana Taurasi, as spoken to Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter, Caitlin Clark is due for a reckoning when she gets to the WNBA. After four years of dominating the college game, Clark is starting the next chapter of her career at the bottom as one of the youngest players in the most talented league in the world. Regardless of what the overall arc of Clark’s career ends up being, it is unlikely that she hits the ground running as the best player on the court every night, as she did at Iowa. Diana Taurasi on Caitlin Clark coming to WNBA «Reality is coming….you look superhuman playing against some 18 years olds but you’re going to come play with some grown women that have been playing professional basketball for a long time» pi...

NFL Draft 2024 ‘The Beast’ Guide: Dane Brugler’s scouting reports and player rankings

Connected media - Linked media Finally! It’s here. I’m thrilled to share this year’s draft guide with everyone. I don’t remember who first referred to it as “The Beast,” but I use that moniker as motivation to make sure this annual primer lives up to the nickname — and I don’t think I’ve let you down this year. Every NFL prospect is a puzzle. And it is a scout’s job to find the puzzle pieces to create as clear a picture of each player as possible. Those puzzle pieces include everything from the player’s physical traits to his mental makeup to the details of his upbringing — and everything in between. That’s precisely how I attack this draft guide. Over the last 18 months, I’ve collected as many puzzle pieces as I could dig up, through countless hours of tape study and conve...

NBA Pre-Postseason Player Tiers 1 and 2: Wembanyama quickly rising; Giannis, Jokić steady at top

Related media - Linked media Yesterday, I largely focused on setting the table for the updated NBA Pre-Postseason Players Tiers before revealing Tier 3 (players between the 24th and 42nd spot) and Tier 4 (Nos. 43-80). Today, I’m going to get a little more into some of the more interesting and/or challenging placements, as well as note a few overall trends. For starters, a consistent bit of feedback — and one I’ve gotten from multiple sources since the release of Tiers 3 and 4 — is the always difficult evaluation of which player is more valuable between an elite role player and a good-but-not-great primary or secondary creator. A senior analytics staffer within the league went so far as to argue they would prefer essentially the entirety of Tier 4A, largely made up of elite role playe...

U.S. Soccer took a gamble waiting for Emma Hayes, leaving USWNT’s style of play in limbo

Linked media - Related media In November, U.S. Soccer gambled that it was worth sacrificing a year of continuous preparation under a permanent manager to hire Emma Hayes. For eight months following the 2023 World Cup, interim management has overseen the U.S. women’s national team. To her credit, Twila Kilgore’s tenure as placeholder helped turn over the player pool and saw her team win a pair of tune-up competitions this spring. Still, it’s been a lost year for the program at a time when it was in sore need of a clear new vision. Hayes’ first games as USWNT manager in June are still two months away, bringing the post-World Cup interlude to 10 months — and a full seven months from her appointment in November. With the CONCACAF W Gold Cup and SheBelieves Cup in the rearview, it’s time ...
