Fernando Tatis Jr. injury update: Padres rookie phenom (hamstring) to start rehab

first_img MLB trade rumors: Phillies deal for Jay Bruce ‘is complete’ The Padres surprised many be including him on their Opening Day roster, opting not to throttle his MLB service time, and Tatis justified that decision immediately, slashing .300/.360/.550 in his first 100 at-bats and .333/.385/.500 as the leadoff hitter.The combined line of the other five Padres who have batted leadoff: .222/.287/.379. Related News Rookie phenom Fernando Tatis Jr., out since April 28 with a left hamstring injury, will begin a rehab assignment Monday at Double-A Amarillo. If all goes well, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported, the star shortstop could be back atop the Padres’ lineup by the end of the week.Rated MLB Pipeline’s No. 2 prospect, Tatis, 20, led the Padres in almost every offensive category when he was sidelined. Joey Gallo injury update: Rangers outfielder (oblique) placed on 10-day ILcenter_img Tatis was excellent defensively and on the basepaths, too, the Union-Tribune noted, showcasing the five tools that make him the Padres’ clear shortstop of the future. In Tatis’ absence, key offseason acquisition Manny Machado moved from third to short seamlessly.Still, the Padres have not only missed Tatis’ presence atop their lineup, but also have searched for answers at third while getting little production from the leadoff spot. Tatis has been at extended spring training in Arizona in recent weeks, slowly working his way into game action. Manager Andy Green has offered no timeline on Tatis’ rehab stint (per MLB.com). “How quickly he returns will be dictated by how he performs and how he feels,” Green said over the weekend.The Padres could use the young star as soon as possible. They are 2-5 over their last seven games and just lost two of three at home to the NL-worst Marlins to fall to 30-29 and into third place in the NL West, 10 1/2 games behind the first-place Dodgers.last_img read more

Limiting Hospitality to Fight Ebola

first_imgOur Defense Correspondent C.Y. Kwanue last Friday reported that Ebola had hit the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL)  in a big way.  Within a week the AFL lost eight stalwart and well trained soldiers to the deadly virus. How did they get it all in the way in that secluded army barracks? One of the male soldiers received a female visitor who was believed to have been Ebola affected.  But he did not know this.  It is she who spread the deadly disease in the barracks.This is a cogent, alarming and serious reminder that we Liberians, known the world over as among the most hospitable people, especially in Africa, have to be very careful today whom we welcome into our homes, places of work, our communities, towns, cities and country.  In the Kesselly Barracks last week, one visitor caused the death of eight of our soldiers.  We hope this is warning enough.Just about 10 days ago in Bensonville, Montserrado County, a similar incident almost happened.  Four men, believed to have links with Guinea, entered a village and moved into a vacant hut there.  They were immediately spotted and approached by one of the town’s elders who asked them what they were doing there.  They told him they were diamond diggers and came to prospect for the mineral because people had told them that Bensonville was “diamond-rich.”The elder promptly told them that in this state of emergency in Liberia, which the President declared several weeks ago as part of the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, people were not supposed to be moving from place to place, but have been advised to stay where they are until this crisis is over.  So the four men were asked to leave, and they did.Liberians, with very few exceptions, are very hospitable people, who are willing, ready and able to welcome any stranger into their towns and homes, and offer them water, food and even a place to pass the night before continuing their journey the following morning.  But for now, not anymore because it is simply    too dangerous.  Who knows   what could have happened in that Bensonville village full of children had those four strangers remained there? Today, people throughout Liberia know that as soon as they spot a stranger in their midst, they should seriously question that person, and persuade him or her to return to where they came from until we have overcome this Ebola virus.  We can no longer take chances.Ebola has terribly affected our traditional cultural practices, which are rooted in love and hospitality.  Now, even in church or in the mosque, people can greet one another only from a distance.  No hand shaking, no snapper of the fingers—the symbol of our friendship—no hugging or kissing, only clasping of the palms and bowing from a distance, in the same way it is done in Far Eastern culture.This has to be done to protect ourselves and one another and keep the virus from spreading.  Here, we invoke the age-old dictum (truism), HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY.   If one knows one has been in contact with anyone who may have been detected of the virus, be should honest and say so and, like the two outstanding women from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Dr.  Bernice Dahn, Chief Medical Officer, and Deputy Minister Yah Zolia.  These women had come into contact with Ebola-infected people; so the two MOH officials, without even being asked, immediately quarantined themselves from their families, their offices and their friends.That is what Eric Duncan did not do—he lied on the form he filled out at Roberts International Airport (RIA) and jumped on the plane to the United States, where he immediately started spreading the virus.We have to suspend our  traditional hospitality for now, but certainly treat people with utmost courtesy, respect,  WITHOUT COMING TOO CLOSE, WITHOUT TOUCHING.    This we must do until Ebola is driven out of Liberia.      Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Redknapp: Zamora’s condition is so bad he can’t sit down at half-time

first_imgHarry Redknapp says Bobby Zamora’s hip condition is so acute the QPR striker cannot sit down at half-time during games.The Rangers boss, who also says Zamora suffered ligament damage when he recently picked up an ankle injury, believes he is a crucial player in the battle to stay up.Redknapp said: “Bobby needs a hip operation and has torn an ankle ligament but has played through it.“At half-time we have to keep him on the move. If he sits down it will seize up.“He can’t get into his car after the game. It’s a nightmare for him trying to get in.”Zamora played 72 minutes of Saturday’s 3-1 win against Sunderland – a result which maintained Rangers’ fighting chance of avoiding the drop.And Redknapp is desperate for the former West Ham man to get through the all-important run-in to the season.“He’s a proper bloke. You want him in your squad,” Redknapp declared.“He’s good for the team, talks to the boys and is an influence in the dressing room – and you need characters like that.”See also:Zamora gives QPR a scare but is passed 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

May 7, A.J. Baltes

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest There are a few guys who have gotten out to plant but we got more rain again. There are a handful of guys who have started planting around here but we haven’t started yet. Ground temperatures are still kind of cold. The forecast is calling for nice weather until Thursday, I believe, with warmer temperatures this week. It has been in the 70s and 80s but I checked ground temperature last week and it was only at 47 or 48 degrees. A lot of fertilizer is being spread. We have all of the wheat sidedressed and we have been getting the bulk fertilizer out. We are going to finish that and then start planting as long as the forecast holds. Further south I heard of more guys planting and there are some beans out already. We got a little rain right after we sidedressed. We got an inch Thursday into Friday and you could tell it made a big difference. The wheat greened right up. The hay looks pretty good. The guys with the triticale and the cereal rye that they are going to use for silage are hoping it gets a little more height to it before it heads out so they can get more tonnage. It is pretty short compared to where it normally is at this time of year. We probably won’t cut hay for another week or two. We still haven’t hooked up the corn planter yet. We have some corn from last year to haul out too before we plant. We’re hoping we can get the ground warmed up so we can get the crops out of the ground quickly. A lot of guys who planted early last year had a lot of replanting and they are waiting until the ground really warms up this year. This is still about normal for our area. We are always a couple of weeks behind the rest of Ohio.last_img read more

How To Crowdsource from the Cloud

first_imgTags:#cloud#cloud computing Crowdsourcing is the outsourcing of work to a large community of people. The size and quality of Wikipedia and open source projects like Linux and WordPress are a testament to what crowdsourcing can accomplish.But what if you do not have a community ready to show up for work? Luckily there are Web services like Mechanical Turk and LiveWorks that can help broker tasks with people who will do them for money.Amazon’s Mechanical Turk allows you to integrate a human being into your application or business process to do work that computer programs traditionally find difficult. Amazon describes work units as:A Human Intelligence Task, or HIT. A question that needs an answer. A HIT represents a single, self-contained task that a worker can work on, submit an answer, and collect a reward for completing.For example, if you need to check that user uploaded photographs are not offensive, you can integrate your application with the Mechanical Turk API to submit a HIT for each piece of content that is uploaded. The HIT would require a worker to decide whether the photograph was offensive or not. Each worker who performs a HIT by submitting their judgment call would earn a fee. You decide the fee a worker will earn each time a HIT is done. If you set the fee too low, then you will find it difficult to attract workers to do your task.Once a Mechanical Turk Worker (a Turker) submits a HIT, the requester can approve or reject the result. These results contribute to the worker’s reputation. Mechanical Turk supports restricting the pool of workers who are eligible to work on HITS using worker attributes such as their language skills or their geographic region.In contrast, LiveWork takes a different approach to getting work done. LiveWork is more suitable to organizations that are looking for a longer lasting relationship with workers, or where the work is more complex than answering a question. LiveWork provides a list of workforces you can hire. Workforces may be an individual or a team who offer different services and rates – often negotiable. Work is not submitted via an API, but rather described via a Project mechanism similar to freelancing sites like eLance and Rent-a-Coder. Once projects are underway, bulk tasks can be created via an upload mechanism. For example you may upload a CSV file containing many sales calls for a workforce make.The LiveWork site also maintains workforce reputations via ratings, but also via written reviews – a clear indication that tasks require more engagement between client and worker.The two services provide very different approaches to outsourcing work. LiveWork focuses on building a flexible extension to your business whereas Mechanical Turk facilitates very brief encounters with no enduring client and worker relationship.Photo credit: Sanja Gjenero Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img tim hastings Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

I Support Women In Sport Campaign

first_imgThat’s a statistic that Women’s Health is trying to combat in their new campaign, I Support Women In Sport. On Wednesday, 19 January 2011 – Australia’s biggest-selling healthy lifestyle magazine, Women’s Health, and Rexona announced a 12 month partnership for I Support Women In Sport, the country’s most significant female sports awareness campaign in history.Felicity Harley, editor, Women’s Health, comments, “I Support Women In Sport has two clear objectives: participation and recognition.”“Firstly, we aim to encourage over 100,000 Australian women who currently do not participate in sport, to pledge their support and become involved in a sporting activity during 2011. Secondly, we will celebrate female athletes from all fields whose achievements are often undervalued or unrecognised.”“We believe the campaign is the most significant of its kind in history – and our goals are timely and ambitious, but ultimately achievable,” adds Harley.Rexona will feature up-and-coming female athletes in advertorials throughout the course of 2011, commencing with the February 2011 issue of Women’s Health and professional triathlete Courtney Gilfillan.Women’s Health magazine will support the drive with a dedicated website www.isupportwomeninsport.com.au which will track the number of sporting “commitment pledges” made and simplify the participation process, with a directory to find the nearest sports team, key calendar dates, a library of relevant information and social media to start community conversations. Each issue of the magazine will dedicate at least six pages of editorial showcasing inspirational female athletes and actioned-orientated tips to motivate and inspire readers.The campaign will culminate in a finale awards ceremony in October, which formally and publicly recognises Australian female sporting achievements.Harley adds, “I Support Women In Sport seeks to support Australian sportswomen from the grassroots level to our next generation of female stars. For too long, Aussie sportswomen have lacked the support they deserve – from sponsorship dollars, to community backing and public recognition of their achievements. The campaign seeks to address the imbalance by promoting positive female role models, recognising female sporting achievements and by actively encouraging female sports participation via highlighting its many physical and mental benefits.”Women’s Health has created a special subscriptions offer in conjunction with this program. This link: www.subscribetoday.com.au/wh/8380 will allow a discounted Women’s Health discount subscription offer.For more information on the I Support Women In Sport campaign and to find out how you can get involved please visit the following website:www.isupportwomeninsport.com.au To keep up-to-date with Women’s Health and the I Support Women In Sport campaign, please visit their Facebook and Twitter pages:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Womens-Health-Magazine-Australia/15083547539 http://twitter.com/womenshealthauslast_img read more

ESPN’s College Football “Future” Power Rankings Top 25

first_imgThe College GameDay crew in Columbus Ohio.ESPN College GameDayESPN has updated its college football “future” power rankings. The “FPR” is a projection of which college football teams will dominate the sport over the next three years. Here’s ESPN’s description:FPR is a projection of a program’s strength over the next three years, not just the 2016 season. An eight-person panel of ESPN reporters and analysts — Heather Dinich, Brad Edwards, Travis Haney, Sharon Katz, Tom Luginbill, Ted Miller, Adam Rittenberg and Mark Schlabach — graded teams based on five criteria, which were weighed differently to account for their impact on overall sustained success. The criteria: coaching (27 percent of the formula), current talent (27 percent), recruiting (20 percent), title path (16 percent) and program foundation (10 percent).Which team does ESPN think will rule the sport over the next three seasons? The reigning national champions.Alabama, which was overtaken by Ohio State in the 2015 edition of the FPR, has its No. 1 spot back. The Crimson Tide continue to recruit as well as ever and, coming off a national title, they’re an obvious choice for No. 1. Here’s the rest of the top 25:  Alabama's at No. 1, of course.
