But the executive committee of French soccer’s governing body has overruled that decision.The FFF says that “the two relegations for the 2019-20 season are maintained and the second division will remain at 20 clubs for the 2020-21 season.” The Ashland and Blue Grass are now back in play for the Oaks and Derby, which are set for Sept. 4-5 at Churchill Downs in Louisville.“Keeneland appreciates the quick response of the Commission to our request, and we applaud all their work on behalf of Kentucky racing during these unprecedented times,” said Keeneland President/CEO Bill Thomason, who also thanked Ellis Park in a news release.Added Ellis Park general manager Jeffrey Inman, “We are all in this together, and Ellis Park is pleased to work with Keeneland on a plan that benefits our horsemen and Kentucky racing.”Keeneland plans to run at least nine races each day and will feature 10 graded stakes events.___ Associated Press To resume, a team or a league must develop a coronavirus safety plan that has been approved by the state Department of Health.

It will be played from June 23-28.Organizers say the event will be conducted without fans. The facility had been scheduled to host the Volvo Car Open this past April, but the tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will work with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to ensure safety and health protocols are adhered to. To minimize people necessary on site, players will call their own lines and get assistance from only one ball person and one official on court.___Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has announced a multimillion-dollar commitment through the team’s foundation to provide jobs and food during the coronavirus pandemic.

Watt hopes there are fans in the stands when the NFL season kicks off this fall.“We love our fans and (having their) energy, the excitement, the adrenaline, it makes it what it is,” Watt said Wednesday.But if fans aren’t allowed in stadiums because of the coronavirus pandemic, it won’t change anything about how the defensive end plays.

And goalies Joonas Korpisalo and Elvis Merzlikins will be healthy simultaneously for the time since late December.In the 24-team playoff plan announced by the NHL on Tuesday, the Blue Jackets will play the Toronto Maple Leafs in a best-of-five qualifying series.“Now it’s time to put what we learned this year to good use and make sure it’s not wasted,” Columbus captain Nick Foligno said. “If we’re going to get healthier, then the bar gets raised.”___ The federation says it “wants to clearly show its good will” and is also willing to extend the exception into the beginning of next season depending on how the pandemic progresses and if games will continue to be played without fans.The league says it will appeal the judge’s decision. It says it jeopardizes the soccer industry in Spain. The league was not able to schedule matches on Mondays before the competition was suspended in mid-March.___Premier League clubs have voted unanimously to resume contact training in the latest step toward restarting the soccer season amid the coronavirus pandemic.The league says players are now able to train as a group and “engage in tackling while minimizing any unnecessary close contact.” Athletic director Ron Stollo said about half of the 22 are coaching positions. The school has 21 intercollegiate sports, and none are being eliminated.Strollo said as an enrollment-boosting measure the school had added men’s swimming and women’s lacrosse and doubled the size of the men’s and women’s cross-country teams before the pandemic and uncertainty about the future adversely affected revenue.The personnel cuts and other moves in the sports department are expected to save $2 million, said Strollo, who along with coaches took pay cuts ranging from 6% to 10%.New football coach Doug Phillips was in the process of hiring his coaching staff when the school was forced to shut down.

Jayhawks athletic director Jeff Long said in an email that employees making less than $50,000 will face a three-week furlough this summer; those making up to $149,000 can choose between a 10-day furlough or a pay cut of either 3.5% or 5% depending on their salary; those making up to $299,000 can choose a 10-day furlough or cut of either 7.5% and 10%; and those making $300,000 or more will take a 10% pay cut.Long joined football coach Les Miles and basketball coach Bill Self in taking pay cuts in April. When those are combined with the latest cuts, Long said the athletic department would save about $1.15 million.“We prolonged enacting measures that impact our people as long as we could,” Long said in the email, “but it has become clear that the across-the-board reductions were necessary for the short and long-term financial needs of this department.”___ Professional sports can resume but without spectators in parts of Pennsylvania where the governor’s stay-at-home order to stem the spread of the coronavirus is no longer in force.Gov.

Watt said he doesn’t have any inside information as to whether the season will begin as planned amid the pandemic, but he’s working on the assumption that it will.___The pause in the NHL season has allowed the hard-luck Columbus Blue Jackets to get healthy again.The Blue Jackets had a group of veterans sidelined and were patching together lines with rookies when the season was halted in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It ended its 2019-20 season part-way through the playoffs without declaring a champion.The league says Sept. 2 is a preliminary date which could be subject to “necessary corrections” depending on how the coronavirus situation develops.International travel restrictions became a problem for KHL teams.

World Number One, Murray, Dumped out of Australian Open

first_imgShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram * Federer progresses to meet Murray’s conqueror in q’finalAndy Murray’s hopes of winning a first Australian Open title ended with a shock defeat yesterday by world number 50 Mischa Zverev of Germany in the fourth round.Murray, the world number one, dropped serve eight times as Zverev won 7-5 5-7 6-2 6-4 on Rod Laver Arena.It is the Briton’s earliest defeat in Melbourne since 2009, and the lowest-ranked player he has lost to at a Grand Slam since the 2006 Australian Open.Zverev goes on to face Roger Federer in the quarter-finals.“It was kind of easy to stay aggressive but it was tough to stay calm,” said the German, who won in three hours and 33 minutes.“I was expecting to maybe double fault in the last game but somehow I made it.”Murray had been hoping to go one better than five runner-up finishes in Melbourne, but he was unable to cope with the serve-and-volley skills of Zverev.The 29-year-old German, a contemporary of Murray from junior days, was ranked outside the world’s top 1,000 two years ago after a succession of injury problems.He fought his way back up the rankings with an attacking style that he used to great effect against Murray, serve-volleying 119 times and winning 65 points at the net, while dismantling the Briton’s second serve.Murray ended the match with an impressive 71 winners to 28 unforced errors, but it was still not enough against an opponent constantly putting him under pressure.The top seed began well, holding points to lead 4-1, but Zverev got the break back with a return winner and would not give the world number one a chance to settle from then on.Zverev recovered another break in game nine and then moved ahead with a delicate drop volley before seeing out the set.Murray roared in relief when he levelled at a set all with a rasping winner after again being pegged back twice, but from midway through the third set it was clear that Zverev was the man in command.He reeled off five straight games to move two sets to one and a break up, and despite one desperately nervous smash into the net – managed to serve his way to victory.The defeat is Murray’s worst at a Grand Slam, in terms of the ranking of his opponent, since he lost to world number 51 Juan Ignacio Chela at Melbourne Park in 2006.His chances of finally landing the third leg of the career Grand Slam looked to have been enhanced following the surprise defeat of six-time champion Novak Djokovic in the second round.However, the wait for a first Australian Open title goes on and Murray will turn his attention to Britain’s Davis Cup tie in Canada next month.“He deserved to win because he played great when he was down, and also in the important moments,” said Murray.“I was kind of behind in the last couple of sets the whole way but I have had tough losses in the past and I have come back from them.”Also yesterday, Roger Federer cast off doubts about his fitness by winning a five-set thriller with Kei Nishikori to reach the Aussie Open quarter-finals.This was only Federer’s fourth official match since returning from six months out with injury but the Swiss stayed tough on Rod Laver Arena to win 6-7 (4/7), 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 in three hours and 24 minutes.He will now continue his pursuit of an 18th grand slam title against Mischa Zverev, the world number 50 who had earlier pulled off a shock win over Murray.Federer’s previous five-set match came at Wimbledon last year when he was beaten by Canada’s Milos Raonic in the semi-finals, two days after winning a decider against Marin Cilic.The Swiss will be hoping to avoid a similar hangover this time around, particularly given the draw has opened up for him following Murray’s surprise early exit.Nishikori stormed 4-0 up in the first set and held on in the tie-break but the Japanese was on the back foot thereafter, particularly after needing to take treatment on a back injury in the fifth.  He was playing his heart out,’ Federer said. ‘I thought it was a great match and joy to be a part of it.‘I wasn’t playing badly in the first set, maybe not serving at my spots very well or he was reading it well. It was about staying calm, after almost going down 6-0, I thought it wasn’t getting any worse from there.‘Kei can give you some looks, he’s not the biggest server on tour but he is one of the baseliners. It paid off in the end somehow.’ last_img read more

Farm groups weighing in on WOTUS

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The 2015 version of the Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule must be permanently rescinded, and the prior version of the regulation re-codified, to provide certainty for dairy farmers, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) said.In comments submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) this week, NMPF outlined its support for both agencies’ proposal to repeal the current definition of WOTUS and rewrite it to reflect common-sense approaches to protecting the environment. In addition, NMPF joined numerous farm and food organizations to submit an additional 22 pages of comments that provided an extensive legal and technical assessment of what the two agencies did wrong three years ago in an attempt to update the regulation.“Dairy farmers undertake extensive efforts to manage the natural resources that are critical to their livelihoods,” said Jim Mulhern, NMPF President and CEO. “WOTUS must provide proper clarity on what falls under its jurisdiction so that farmers can better meet the industry’s shared commitment to clean water.”In early 2017, the Trump Administration ordered a review of the WOTUS rule in response to concerns many farm groups had raised since the measure was finalized in 2015. Because the WOTUS regulation significantly expanded the EPA’s authority over waterways used by farmers for drainage and irrigation, the measure was challenged in a federal appeals court and ultimately put on hold.“The 2015 Rule should be repealed and, for absolute clarity, done so permanently,” NMPF said. “We believe the 2015 rule failed to provide regulatory certainty and consistency and exceeded the Agencies’ legal authority under the [Clean Water Act].”The Clean Water Act (CWA) of 1972 gave the federal government jurisdiction over navigable waters but left the regulation of non-navigable waters to the states. However, over the years, the federal government has continually and wrongfully expanded its authority over these non-navigable waters, according to NMPF.NMPF said the two agencies need to apply the definitions of the WOTUS rule in ways that are consistent with recent Supreme Court decisions and long-standing farming practices. Re-codifying the regulations that existed before the 2015 rule was developed will provide continuity and certainty for dairy farmers, other regulated entities, states governments, agency staff, and the public, the comments said.The EPA and ACE should proceed with a notice-and-comment rulemaking process, in which two agencies re-evaluate the definition of WOTUS. NMPF said this must be done to correct the 2015 rule’s lack of clarity on key terms, such as “adjacent,” “floodplain,” and “significant nexus.” Dairy producers must be able to understand what constitutes federally-regulated waters of the United States, so they can better manage water quality on their farms.With the repeal docket now closed, it is likely that the 2015 rule will be repealed permanently. NMPF will now focus on suggesting modifications to the pre-2015 rule and how it can be changed to provide the necessary clarity and certainty.last_img read more

She will be marrying Monaco’s Prince Albert II. Wittstock attended Armani’s shows in Italy in 2008 and 2009. Giorgio Armani refused give any details on the gown for the July 2 nuptials. Despite his silence, comparisons to Grace Kelly’s celebrated 1956 gown are already being made. It’s the perfect collaboration between a celebrated designer and a much talked-about couple!The spice cellar: A glass full of summeradvertisementAs the heat steadily rises I sit in my comfortable armchair sipping a delicious, aromatic-full of spring-red wine and wonder is it the end of the red. The thought of drinking red wine in summer makes me feel hot and bothered and I am instead drawn to a bouquet of fragrant and crisp whites. In the midst of this mental tussle between red and white, enters the rose, one of my summer favourites. The rose has found a niche for itself in the Indian market, especially when white is not enough and red is just too much. Aromatic, fresh, fruity and floral are some of the first hints I get when I swirl a mouthful of rose to combat the mad afternoon heat.Only a select few imported rose wines are available in Indian importers’ portfolios. Some Indian wineries like Sula with its Brut Blush Zinfandel or Grovers’ Shiraz Rose are beginning to introduce the rose into the Indian market and the time to get reacquainted with the best rose is just right, as we make our way through a typical Indian summer.My pick this summer would have to be the perfectly poised Sula Rose Brut. This salmon pink sparkling wine is an amalgamation of two very different grapes-the Chenin Blanc (90%) from the Loire Valley which is used to make slightly sweet and dry white wines and the Zinfandel (10%) from California which has a predominant note of blackberry and pepper. A combination of these gives this sparkling pink a fullbodied feel and the bouquet a freshness that’s just right for summer. The end result is an afternoon, sipping a crisp sparkly with hints of strawberries and melon. This rose while bordering on being dry and firm, has elements that make it fun, fruity and fresh.Rose wines need a little pampering of their own and don’t do too well in the heat. Best served chilled (5 degree Celsius) on a stifling afternoon or hot and heavy evening. As rose wines have a more robust structure than that of white wines it is easy to pair them with Indian dishes like biryani, fiery fish curry and most other dishes that are part of North West Frontier cuisine. This summer give your brunch an edge by creating a heady punch with rose as its defining ingredient. It’s guaranteed to knock the summer heat out of your guests and keep them coming back for more. Here’s a simple recipe that packs some punch.Empty a bottle of Sula Blush Zinfandel into a jug or bowl. Add about 15 strawberries (if other berries are available add them too) cut into chunks, 120 ml sugar syrup, 120 ml lime juice and two cans of ginger ale (to make it a little stronger you can add 120 ml of a berry flavoured vodka ). Chill the punch for an hour or two and serve with light tapas. Say cheers to rose and goodbye to summer.-Aftab Sidhulast_img read more

Lionel Messi breaks his duck against Chelsea to earn draw for Barcelona

first_imgShare on Messenger Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Nonetheless, Conte refused to blame Christensen, who was chosen ahead of the experienced Gary Cahill. “No, absolutely no, no, no,” he insisted. “Christensen’s performance was great, incredible. He is only 21 years old, it’s great that he’s able to play this game with his maturity and personality. He was one of the best players tonight. A top, top game and I’m very pleased for his performance.”Even so, it was still a frustrating night for Conte and his players bearing in mind the 13-minute spell when they had the lead and seemed to have the measure of their opponents.Eden Hazard had frequently unsettled the visiting defence. Thibaut Courtois was scarcely troubled in Chelsea’s goal and the home side could also reflect on two moments in the first half when Willian tried his luck from 20 yards out and – agonisingly, almost implausibly – both shots came back off the woodwork.The first was just before the half-hour mark when the ball thudded off Marc-André ter Stegen’s left-hand post. Ten minutes later, Willian tried again from the same distance, 20 yards out, and this time his shot ricocheted off the other upright.Stamford Bridge howled with anguish but these were encouraging moments for Chelsea and when Willian tried for a third time, in the 62nd minute, he had seen a small gap inside the right-hand post and picked it out beautifully.More than anything, the frustration for Chelsea was exacerbated by the sense that the team currently seven points clear at the top of La Liga might be running out of ideas. Barça had played every kind of pass bar the killer variety.They did not manage a shot on target in the first half and it was unusual, in particular, to see Luis Suárez looking as subdued as he did in the opening 45 minutes. These are the occasions – the big nights, under the floodlights, with the Champions League anthem blaring – when Suárez usually loves to compete with Messi for the leading role. Not here, though.Instead, the narrative came back – as it often does – to the little guy wearing Barca’s No 10 shirt. Messi did not invent the art of dribbling but he has certainly taken it to its highest level.One early slalom left Antonio Rüdiger in such a fix it was difficult not to feel a pang of sympathy for the defender. Messi then proceeded to remind everyone that too much time had been wasted in the build-up to this match analysing his lack of goals in these fixtures.His movement, his distribution, the deftness of touch – as much as Chelsea’s fans must have wished the ball could avoid him, they will surely realise these are moments to treasure. And Messi, true to form, had not yet finished with Rüdiger.Equally, Messi’s influence had waned after the interval and Chelsea were looking relatively comfortable as the game reached the final quarter of an hour. They had defended stoutly, with N’Golo Kanté having one of his better performances in front of the back four.Chelsea did not start with an orthodox centre-forward but the speed and movement of Hazard, Willian and Pedro always made them dangerous on the counterattack. Willian’s goal was a peach and, frankly, it felt ludicrous that Conte is widely assumed to be on his way out in the summer. Stamford Bridge, once again, felt like a happy place.Yet this was a big night for Christensen, only 21, and there were some tell-tale signs, perhaps, in the first half when he misdirected what should have been a routine pass and sent the ball out for a corner.His next mistake was far more serious and, though Messi will inevitably dominate the headlines, the goal would never have been possible had it not been for Iniesta’s brilliant anticipation. Messi was waiting, unmarked, and was never going to let Chelsea off the hook.

Chelsea had been leading, courtesy of Willian’s goal, and showing all their better qualities.Yet no side can defend this generously and expect to get away with it. Not, at least, when the opposition has Andrés Iniesta and Lionel Messi among its front line.Messi’s goal was his first against Chelsea in nine attempts and in that moment the advantage swung towards Barça ahead of the return leg. Chelsea had looked vulnerable as soon as Christensen committed the defender’s sin of playing the ball across the front of his own penalty area. If the pass was intended for Cesc Fàbregas, it was not entirely clear.The ball went from one side of the pitch to the other and, in his desperation to cut it out, César Azpilicueta put his team in even more danger by lunging in and failing to make contact. Iniesta was free. Messi, as always, was backing him up. And it is tempting to think Chelsea might live to regret that combination of errors in the second leg at the Camp Nou on 14 March.
