Friday’s games mark the start of the quarterfinals and feature a UEFA vs. UEFA matchup in the morning followed by a CONMEBOL vs. CONMEBOL game in the afternoon. In the first match of the day, Germany has a 52.5 percent chance of defeating France and advancing to the semifinals, according to FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup predictions. In the second, however, Brazil is heavily favored to defeat Colombia (72 percent to 28 percent) and play the winner of Germany vs. France in the semifinal next week.France vs. Germany: 12 p.m. EDTBrazil vs. Colombia: 4 p.m. EDTIN BRIEFSee our World Cup predictions for the latest probabilities.IN DEPTHAll eight teams still in the tournament won their respective groups, so there are no true underdogs left. But if we go back to the beginning, Brazil and Germany both had very good chances of reaching this stage of the knockout rounds (80 percent and 68 percent) compared to Colombia and France (46 percent and 45 percent).France and Germany are old foes, having faced each other 25 times since 1930 (prior to 1990, Germany competed as West Germany). In those games France has been victorious 11 times compared to Germany’s eight. However, almost all of these games were friendlies. The last time these two teams met competitively was in the 1986 World Cup semifinals, and Germany edged France 2-0. ESPN’s Soccer Power Index rates France vs. Germany as the most evenly matched of all the quarterfinal games.Brazil vs. Colombia, on the other hand, is supposed to be anything but even. Strangely, these teams have also met 25 times, and Colombia has managed to win only twice. A Seleção have slaughtered Los Cafeteros on more than one occasion, 9-0 in 1959 and 6-2 in 1969, but this is a different Colombia team. Their last meeting with Brazil, a friendly in the U.S. in 2012, ended in a 1-1 draw.Brazil trumps Colombia in overall and offensive SPI ratings (90.6 and 3.1 to 89.4 and 2.6) but Colombia’s defense is slightly better, with an SPI rating of 0.4 average goals allowed to Brazil’s 0.5 (lower defensive scores are better). Brazil’s defense has something to worry about in James Rodriguez, this World Cup’s breakout star for Colombia, who has tallied five goals — the most of any player so far — including this beautiful chest-to-volley on the turn against Uruguay:But Brazil’s Neymar (and Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Germany’s Thomas Muller) are only one goal behind Rodriguez, so if Brazil clinches a win in this clash of the golden boys, Rodriguez may be out of the race for this year’s golden boot.OFF THE PITCHFrance and Germany are neighbors, and each has international power and its own distinct culture — berets and baguettes vs. lederhosen and bratwurst. So given the ease of travel between the countries, it’s not surprising that there’s a lot of cross-tourism. According to the French Ministry of Handicrafts, Trade and Tourism, there were about 6.3 million overnight stays in France from German tourists in 2012. Conversely, the German National Tourist Board reported that there were roughly 3.1 million, or half as many, overnight stays in Germany from French tourists in the same year. When adjusted for each country’s total population at the time, this means that about 8 percent of Germany’s 80.4 million people stayed overnight in France at least once in 2012, while about 5 percent of France’s 65.7 million people stayed overnight in Germany. They may not be the best of friends, but it looks like the old enemies have at least upgraded to a friendly rivalry — at least as far as tourism goes. — Hayley MunguiaFURTHER READINGWith the U.S. Out, Which World Cup Team Will Americans Root For?Tim Howard Lost, But He Just Had the Best Match of the World CupA Chart For Predicting Penalty-Shootout Odds in Real TimeCORRECTION (July 4, 10:57 a.m.): An earlier version of this post had the incorrect year of the last competitive meeting between France and Germany.

OSU freshman Emily Clark (20) during a game against Penn State on April 6 at Buckeye Field. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorThe Ohio State-Michigan rivalry continued this weekend, but this time, the Wolverines came out on top. The OSU softball team (25-11-1, 9-4-1) suffered its first sweep of the year at the hands No. 2 Michigan (33-4, 11-2), with three lopsided games in Ann Arbor, Michigan.OSU junior Shelby Hursh pitched 11 innings with 10 strikeouts over the three games, taking her record to 13-5. For the Wolverines, junior Megan Betsa dominated in the circle with two complete games and 25 strikeouts.At the plate, freshman Emily Clark continued her confident approach, hitting .500, and senior Cammi Prantl hit .333 with a double in the final game, which brought her within three of tying the program’s all-time record.Game 1The Buckeyes opened their tough weekend with an equally tough loss, an 8-0 shutout in six innings.Clark went 2-for-2 and redshirt senior shortstop Maddy McIntyre went 2-for-3. The pair were the only batters to record hits, as OSU struggled against Michigan junior Megan Betsa, who struck out 13.McIntyre started the game with a single through the left side and a stolen base, but the Buckeyes left her stranded. In the bottom of the first, Michigan earned two bases after Hursh hit two batters, but she recorded two strikeouts to keep the game even.The game remained this way until the bottom of the fourth, when the Wolverines grabbed a one-run lead after junior Abby Ramirez singled to left field to bring in junior outfielder Kelly Christner, who had reached first base on a throwing error. Despite loading the bases on Clark’s single and two walks in the next inning, OSU could not tie the game.Michigan stretched its lead to four on sophomore Aidan Falk’s three-run shot to center field in the bottom of the fifth and pushed the margin to 5-0 on a deep triple by senior Kelsey Susalla in the following inning. The Wolverines continued to dominate at the plate with leadoff hits from sophomore Tera Blanco and junior Lindsay Montemarano and a walkoff single by Falk to end the game after six innings.Game 2In Saturday’s matchup, the Buckeyes were able to score their first run of the weekend, but once again were overwhelmed by the home team in a 5-1 loss.OSU left six runners stranded throughout the game, and Michigan took control of the fifth inning to score three runs with two outs. However, for the first time this season, no Buckeye struck out at the plate, which is somewhat of silver lining amid a tough three-game sweep. Both redshirt junior Alex Bayne and sophomore Taylor White went 2-for-3 with pairs of singles, and sophomore Becca Gavin earned an RBI on a single through the left side. OSU junior Lena Springer and sophomore Shelby McCombs managed to strike out only one batter and gave up seven hits.Like Friday’s game, Michigan scored first on a solo home run by Christner in the bottom of the second. The Wolverines took their lead to two on Susalla’s outfield single to bring in Romero.The Buckeyes briefly responded on Gavin’s hit but could not stop Michigan’s bats from adding three more runs to the scoreboard. Freshman Faith Canfield, on her second homer of the year, senior Sierra Lawrence and senior slugger Sierra Romero recorded big hits to maintain the Wolverines’ hold on the game.The final three innings were unsuccessful for both dugouts, especially for OSU, as its last nine batters of the game went down in order.Game 3Michigan, once again, scored first on a throwing error from behind the plate by Gavin. In the bottom of the third inning, a sacrifice fly to right field by Blanco brought in Lawrence to make the game a 2-0 battle.While OSU got runners aboard, it could not send them around the bases to score. Through the first three innings, the Buckeyes left four stranded with only one hit. White brought the Wolverines’ lead to one with a leadoff inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning, but Gavin, junior Anna Kirk and Leonard went down in order to stifle the rally.The Buckeyes took their first lead of the weekend on Prantl’s double up the middle to bring in freshman Bri Betschel and Bayne in the fifth inning. This lead did not last long, though, after Michigan’s Blanco sent a booming three-run homer over the center-field fence.Heading into the final two innings behind two runs, OSU could not jumpstart a late rally, handing Michigan a 3-0 weekend and another notch in the rivalry history.Up nextOSU is scheduled to take on the Ohio Bobcats in another midweek, intrastate doubleheader Tuesday before returning home for a series with Purdue from Friday to Sunday. The first game against the Bobcats is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. in Athens, Ohio. read more

Courtesy of FacebookFreshman midfielder Paige Hamilton looks for the ball during a game against New Hampshire, at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU won, 3-2.Ohio State’s field hockey team finished the Buckeye Classic 1-1.On Friday the team was victorious against Missouri State, 5-1 and on Sunday they took on Bucknell and fell in overtime, 3-2.In Friday’s game, sophomore forward Peanut Johnson recorded her first hat trick of the season, the second time in her career she has achieved the feat.Johnson said the whole team stepped up and that contributed to the win.“We really came together as a team. I don’t think one person tried to do too much,” Johnson said. “We just kind of tried to rely on each other. I think that’s what helped a lot.”Coach Anne Wilkinson said she was impressed with many of the players’ aggressiveness and their abilities to attack the ball on both sides.“I think (senior midfielder Mona Frommhold) really did a great job of keeping the space and the shape of our defense and being able to step up and intercept,” Wilkinson said. “And (senior) Maria Swartz, she was our left back, she must have had at least 12 interceptions out of the back and she was really playing aggressive and stepping up.”Wilkinson said her players were faced with good pressure from the opponents but they were able to execute based on their fundamental skills. She also said they need to work on some more things as well.“I think our stick skills really stood out… our ability to pass the ball and distribute, but we will continue to work on our team speed,” Wilkinson said.Johnson said there are some things the team needs to improve on though.“We just need to keep making sure we keep the work rate up and off ball movement too, like if we lose it we just need to keep hustling back. I think that will win some more games for us,” Johnson said.Senior midfielder and co-captain, Arielle Cowie, said she noticed the team’s endurance was better due to all the practice they put into their fitness last week.“There wasn’t a moment I was really tired and I think we didn’t let the intensity drop,” Cowie said. “We kept the tempo upbeat and it really helped that each and every person was on the same page.”Even though the team fell in overtime again this season, senior midfield and co-captain, Nora Murer, said the squad did a great job together over the weekend.“I think we worked really hard as a team,” Murer said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to Syracuse, N.Y., this weekend to play Massachusetts Saturday at 2 p.m. and Syracuse Sunday at 2 p.m. read more

first_imgHelen Woodward staff members and 80 rescued animals to return from Houston Tuesday RANCHO SANTA FE (KUSI) — 9/4/2017 — The Helen Woodward Animal Center is expecting 80 orphaned cats and dogs from Houston to arrive Tuesday. The non-profit, located in Rancho Sante Fe, sent a team of four veterinarian technicians to the flood-ravaged area Thursday. They spent time helping shelters, inundated with abandoned animals from Hurricane Harvey, by administering vaccinations and medications.The team will return with animals that were already in shelters, to make room for the countless others who still need to be reunited with their owners. Southwest Airlines partnered with the animal center, offering free passage for the team of vets and animals. Helen Woodward Center is also raising money for the Montgomery-County Animal Shelter in Texas, which has the bigger burden of taking in not only dogs and cats but abandoned livestock, horses, and reptiles. The flight lands in San Diego around noon. The animals will then be transported to the center around 2 p.m. The center is inviting the public to come welcome the new animals to San Diego, while also informing them how they can adopt or become foster parents. Foster parenting allows the animals to become socialized so they can find a forever home faster. There is a critical need for cat fosters parents. For more information, visit the Helen Woodward Animal Center Facebook page. 8/31/2017 — Four staff members from the Helen Woodward Animal Center boarded a plane Thursday morning bound for Texas to help rescue stranded animals. With the Houston-Hobby Airport remaining closed, the flight was Austin-bound with an SUV ready to drive the group to the Lone Star Convention Center where Montgomery County-based rescue organization – Operation Pets Alive! – had set up an emergency shop. There, 100s of orphan dogs and cats pulled from devastated Houston shelters are waiting for rescue and Helen Woodward Animal Center is ready to assist.The destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey has captured the media spotlight globally for days, depicting unimaginable loss and nightmarish scenarios few can imagine.For the staff at Helen Woodward Animal Center, however, the tales have a ring of familiarity to them.  In 2012, Center staff welcomed 60 orphan dogs and cats from New Jersey (who had been stranded in underwater shelters during Hurricane Sandy), via a donated charter from Southwest.  Similarly, in 2005, the Center aided with the transportation and placement of Hurricane Katrina animal victims.  The impact of helping those who were unable to help themselves, orphan dogs and cats facing displacement and possible euthanasia, made its mark on all who had a hand in it.One such person is now Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Director of Operations Jennifer Shorey. In 2012, Shorey had been part of a team who had donated their services to the Helen Woodward Animal Center rescue by chaperoning the orphan pets across the country.  Her work with those rescued dogs and cats played a part in her decision to begin working with Helen Woodward Animal Center.  “You look at all of those faces and know that their stay at the shelter was meant to be temporary,” Shorey stated.  “It was supposed to lead them to forever homes.  But when something as devastating as a hurricane hits, so much has to be left behind.  People lose their homes, their possessions, and just focus on survival.  And those orphan pets are left behind too.  You realize how much of a difference you can make and how many lives you can save.”Helen Woodward Animal Center’s rescue of Houston pets was initiated by a call for help from Operation Pets Alive! – a non-profit, all volunteer organization “striving to elevate Montgomery County to a No-Kill Community.”  Helen Woodward President and CEO Mike Arms immediately agreed to assist.  As in 2012, Southwest also jumped in to donate the use of a plane, with Southwest Employees donating their time, all for the extraordinary rescue.“These are the silent victims,” Arms said. “There are shelters that have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey, without electricity, without supplies.  Operation Pets Alive! has taken in an overwhelming number of orphan dogs and cats who had inhabited those shelters before the storm and were suddenly facing euthanasia simply because they had no place to go.  We are honored to help save those lives and we are lucky to have incredible friends like Southwest to help make this all possible.”Tuesday, Sep. 5, approximately 80 orphan dogs and cats (from Operation Pets Alive!) are flying across the country to Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe. “The devastation of Hurricane Harvey has impacted a number of our communities along the Gulf.  Our hearts are with our Customers, Employees, family and friends who have experienced loss and devastation from the storm,” said Linda Rutherford, Southwest Airlines Chief Communications Officer.  “We’re so happy to partner with the Helen Woodward Animal Center to extend hope to Houston by transporting shelter animals to a new home in San Diego, while making additional space for family pets whose humans are currently displaced.  Our Employees care so deeply for our Customers and all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, including our sweet little four-legged friends.”HOW YOU CAN HELP: Helen Woodward Animal Center is also sending a $5,000 donation to Operations Pets Alive! to assist with the continued orphan animal rescue efforts and encourages other to make a donation to the organization as well. To do so, please log onto https://poundwishes.com/donate/2159787/help-for-harvey-s-homeless-pets.To assist the Houston arrivals here in San Diego, Helen Woodward Animal Center asks for the donation of towels and blankets.  Show Caption Hide Caption Posted: August 31, 2017 Show Caption Hide Caption Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter 12 August 31, 2017 Show Caption Hide Caption , Show Caption Hide Caption last_img read more

Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) vowed to fight the Army’s planned restructuring after learning from Army Secretary John McHugh on Wednesday that two Georgia posts would lose a total of 4,350 soldiers.“I am demanding answers from the Department of Defense on how they are justifying these troop cuts in Georgia,” Isakson said of the Army’s plans to eliminate, on a net basis, 950 soldiers from Fort Stewart and 3,400 troops from Fort Benning.“I have talked in great detail with Secretary McHugh today and will continue to fight to see to it that we preserve every soldier in Georgia that we can,” according to his press release.Isakson also threatened to stop a nominee to a senior DOD position from gaining a confirmation vote in the Senate.“I have also taken steps to block a Senate vote on the president’s nomination of a new congressional liaison for the Department of Defense in light of the department’s failure to give Congress a heads up before these cuts were made public,” he stated.Isakson’s comments came one day ahead of the Army’s public announcement of which installations would be affected by its plan to shrink the Army by 40,000 soldiers by fiscal 2017 to comply with stringent spending caps. The service also is expected to announce 17,000 civilian layoffs.The chairmen of the House and Senate Armed Services committees also decried the pending cuts that would reduce the service’s active-duty end strength from 490,000 to 450,000.Senate Armed Services Committee Chair John McCain (R-Ariz.) called the Army’s plan a “dangerous consequence of budget-driven strategy,” reported Defense News.“Any conceivable strategic rationale for this cut to Army end-strength has been overturned by the events of the last few years from the rise of ISIL, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Ebola crisis, and more,” McCain said.McCain called for a bipartisan budget deal to lift the spending caps, which would force Army officials to cut end strength to 420,000 and increase “the risk that in a crisis, we will have too few soldiers who could enter a fight without proper training or equipment.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

first_imgThe Jurassic World franchise has been one of NBCUniversal’s biggest blockbusters.  Universal NBCUniversal — the Comcast media giant behind the Jurassic World franchise and TV networks like NBC, Bravo and Syfy — reportedly plans to launch a streaming service next year.The service will include original content, licensed programming and titles from the company’s archives, according to Variety, which cited two unnamed people familiar with the matter. It will reportedly be available free with advertising for people who already pay for TV through Comcast or Sky, the company’s European satellite provider. But people who aren’t Comcast customers can still access it with a paid subscription, and NBCU will offer an ad-free version for an extra fee too, the report said.  0 Share your voice TV and Movies Digital Media Tags Now playing: Watch this: Disney Comcastcenter_img It makes NBCUniversal the latest gigantic company jumping on the streaming-video bandwagon. Just this year, streaming services are expected from Apple, which has been reportedly investing $1 billion in programming for its as-yet-unconfirmed service; Disney, which will be the exclusive place to stream all its blockbuster Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars films; and WarnerMedia, the AT&T unit that owns HBO and movies like Harry Potter and Wonder Woman.  It will mark the coming year as one of major renovation for traditional Hollywood giants, which are all grappling for ways to take on deep-pocketed tech companies pouring money into original shows and movies, like Netflix and Amazon. NBCUniversal didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment. NBCU has long had a streaming operation through Hulu, the service jointly owned by Comcast, Disney, Fox and Warner.

first_img Tags After the InfoWars channel became available, we heard from concerned parties and have determined that the channel should be removed from our platform. Deletion from the channel store and platform has begun and will be completed shortly.— Roku (@Roku) January 16, 2019 @slpng_giants Hey guys, Roku just Put an Infowars channel up today, here’s some screen shots of my interactions. pic.twitter.com/fqiiUcpsYf— The Hamberdglar (@DanielMadison78) January 15, 2019 Comments Conspiracist Alex Jones’ Infowars is now a channel on Roku.  Tom Williams/Getty Images Roku pulled conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars from its platform amid user backlash early Wednesday, shortly after it was spotted on the streaming service.The Infowars channel’s appearance was highlighted by Digiday early Tuesday, six months after Jones and his controversial show were banned by multiple social and video platforms, including Facebook and YouTube. Digital Media Politics Roku’s initial response was an emailed statement that the company sees the controversy about Jones as a matter of opinions and perspectives. “While the vast majority of all streaming on our platform is mainstream entertainment, voices on all sides of an issue or cause are free to operate a channel. We do not curate or censor based on viewpoint,” a Roku spokesperson said. “We’re not promoting or being paid to distribute Infowars. We do not have any commercial or advertising relationship with Infowars.”The service clearly decided to abandon this approach, since it announced that Infowars would be removed hours later.Infowars and Jones’ other accounts were widely banned last year. In August, he was kicked off YouTube, Facebook, Spotify and iTunes for violating their policies. Twitter permanently banned Jones and his accounts in September. The same month, Jones was also kicked out of Apple’s App Store. “While open to many voices, we have policies that prohibit the publication of content that is unlawful, incites illegal activities or violates third-party rights, among other things,” said the Roku spokesperson prior to the decision to remove the channel. “If we determine a channel violates these policies, it will be removed. To our knowledge, InfoWars is not currently in violation of these content policies.” Jones is a right-wing conspiracist who’s promoted false claims about tragic events such as the 9/11 attacks and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. He’s faced at least five defamation lawsuits, including three filed by families of Sandy Hook victims.Just last week a Connecticut judge ruled that the families of Sandy Hook victims could review the internal marketing and financial documents of Infowars, according to the Associated Press. Infowars didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the removal.First published on Jan. 15 at 3:58 p.m. PT.Updated on Jan. 16 at 1:54 a.m. PT: Adds that Roku removed Infowars. Other users condemned Roku for allowing Jones on the streaming platform. “After the InfoWars channel became available, we heard from concerned parties and have determined that the channel should be removed from our platform,” Roku wrote in a tweet. “Deletion from the channel store and platform has begun and will be completed shortly.”The sudden removal follows users noticing Infowars on Roku and tweeting at the service seeking answers.

As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Share your voice Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X 11 DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters.

first_img Tesla Model 3: The one you’ve been waiting for 50 Photos 13 2019 Tesla Model S Long Range review: Familiar, yet oh so much better How much range is enough range in an electric car? It wasn’t that long ago that 200 miles was considered a luxury, but that bar was only ever going to get higher. Tesla just hiked it up another notch, upgrading the Model S sedan to a whopping 370 mile EPA-rated range on a single charge. The Long Range Model X SUV, meanwhile, now does 325, all thanks to a new drivetrain that ekes out more miles from the 100 kilowatt-hours of battery at its disposal.A new, permanent-magnet motor up front and induction motor on the rear, plus a number of other smaller changes hinted at in a new blog post, offer this enhanced utilization of the capacity slung in the low-mounted battery pack. Tesla claims a 93% efficiency in the cars, along with “significantly” more torque and power to increase performance. They still won’t trump the Ludicrous Model S, however, with a Long Range sedan doing the 0-to-60 run in 3.7 seconds vs. 2.4 for a Ludicrous Performance. Enlarge ImageTesla’s updated Model S and X ranges are getting a slew of meaningful upgrades. Tesla But that’s not all. The sedan and SUV both now offer a new adaptive suspension system, the details of which weren’t disclosed, except that Tesla is promising more intelligent behavior from the four corners of the car. This includes softening the ride while commuting on Autopilot and automatically lowering the car at speed to decrease drag and increase range. When you do run out of range, Models S and X are now capable of sucking down 200 kW of juice from Tesla’s new V2 Superchargers, meaning in optimal conditions they’ll charge twice as fast.And how much will the cure for your undiagnosed case of range anxiety cost? Tesla’s new, 370-mile Long Range Model S starts at $88,000 before any federal and local incentives, while a 325-mile Long Range Model X will set you back at least $93,000. Meanwhile, the company has introduced an updated Standard Range Model S, with a (still quite healthy) 285 miles of EPA-rated range starting at $78,000. The 250-mile Standard Range Model X is $83,000.  Tesla Tesla Model 3 Review: Performance trim More From Roadshowcenter_img Comments Share your voice Tesla Model 3 barrels through the snow in Track Mode Tags Electric Cars Car Industry Teslalast_img read more
