NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith.With the NFL season set to begin tonight, the NFL Players Association has asked a federal judge for a temporary restraining order that would allow players suspended in connection with the NFL’s bounty investigation to rejoin their teams in time to play regular season openers.If you think the players are giving up on this thing, think again.The union, which filed the motion Tuesday on behalf of New Orleans defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita, and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, argues the players will suffer irreparable harm if they are forced to miss games while their case against the league proceeds.An NFL investigation found the New Orleans Saints operated a bounty system rewarding between 22 and 27 players for hard hits and injuring opposing players.Suspended Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma had already filed a similar motion when his full-season suspension began earlier. The other three players’ suspensions began this week.The players ultimately want their suspensions thrown out because they argue the disciplinary process was fundamentally flawed and unfair.U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan, who is hearing the case, has said she found the league’s handling of the bounty matter to be unfair to the players and their punishments excessive, but she has also said she is not yet comfortable that federal courts have jurisdiction to rule on a process that was collectively bargained between the union and the league.She has already indicated, in response to Vilma’s earlier request for a temporary restraining order, that she was inclined to wait until players had exhausted their remedies under the league’s collective bargaining agreement before she ruled.Still pending on that front is a decision by a three-member panel that last week heard arguments in the NFLPA’s appeal of a system arbitrator Stephen Burbank’s ruling that commissioner Roger Goodell had the authority both to punish the players and hear their appeal in the bounty matter.The union had argued that because actions alleged in the bounty matter happened on the field, the league’s labor agreement calls for someone other than the commissioner to hear players’ appeals of the commissioner’s disciplinary action.The three-member panel has indicated that it hoped to rule by this week. If it rules in favor of the players, Berrigan would have no reason to act. read more

On Thursday, Williams beat Barbora Strycova, a 33-year-old who had never reached a Grand Slam singles semifinal. Strycova, who has a fine track record at doubles, reaching the semifinals in each major event, couldn’t control Williams, who won 6-1, 6-2.But Williams hasn’t played anyone like the 27-year-old Halep. She’s great at receiving serves and, at times, pouncing on them, too. Halep has won 53 percent of return points — and that includes first and second serves. Williams, known as an all-time returner, has won 43 percent.Halep also sounds eager and hungry. “I feel stronger mentally facing her,” she said. “We will see what is going to happen.”Williams has yet to play against a top 15 player in this tournament. According to the WTA, Williams’s opponents so far had an average rank of 75.2, and only two of them were seeded (No. 30 Carla Suarez Navarro in the fourth round and No. 18 Julia Goerges in the third). A similar scenario unfolded a year ago, when Williams coasted to the finals with her average opponent ranked even lower at 80, until she faced Angelique Kerber in the final. Kerber, who has an attacking style similar to Halep’s, beat Williams 6-3, 6-3.Williams needs to serve as well as possible to tie Court’s record, and so far, her serve has seemed vulnerable. Throughout the event, Williams has won 54.2 percent of second-serve points, which is solid and in line with her career numbers at Wimbledon. But the first serve counts the most, and Williams has not nearly been her best. She has won 74 percent of her first serves in her six matches. That’s lower than for all of her Wimbledon wins; her previous low at a Wimbledon in which she won was 75.8 percent in 2003. Her share of first serves won was much higher for her most recent match, at 89 percent, so perhaps she has started to find her footing.At her best, Williams’s serves have been efficient and brutal. In 2010, she won 87.5 percent of the points for which she landed her first serve, the highest at Wimbledon in her career. (That year, Williams hit 23.5 percent of her total points served as aces.) Williams didn’t lose a set that year (she also lost no sets in 2002). In 2012, Williams had stats nearly as impressive, hitting 20.9 percent of her total points served as aces. That’s the only time Williams hit more than 100 serves as aces (102 in all) at Wimbledon.Williams has played Halep 11 times, including three at a Slam. Halep has won just once, in 2014. But she played Williams close at the Australian Open this year and won a set from her in the 2011 Wimbledon, back in their first matchup. Williams knows this will be her biggest test, and she knows that Halep is ready.“The biggest key with our matches is the loss that I had. I never forgot it. She played unbelievable,” Williams said. “That makes me know that level she played at, she can get there again. So I have to be better than that.” With one more win at Wimbledon, Serena Williams would tie Margaret Court, the only player in history with 24 Grand Slam singles titles. In Saturday’s final, the 37-year-old Williams will battle Simona Halep, who won the French Open last year but has never won a Wimbledon title. Williams appears to have shaken off the rust of earlier this season and seems, at last, to have returned to her perch as the most dominant player in the history of tennis.There’s just one problem: Williams’s incredible serve is still a little shaky.“I don’t know if I’ve had my best serves this tournament,” Williams said. “I’m just now starting to use my legs again.” read more

first_img JBL Flip The new JBL Flip 5 in front of the Flip 4. It’s really only a little bigger than its predecessor. David Carnoy/CNET Lay the JBL Flip 5 next to last year’s Flip 4 like I did at this year’s CES in Las Vegas and you’ll notice that the Flip 5 looks pretty similar but is slightly bigger than its predecessor. That increased size has allowed JBL’s engineers to equip the Flip 5 with a larger battery and more power so that it delivers a little bigger sound. It also now has USB-C charging for quicker battery charging. Like its predecessor, the JBL Flip 5 is fully waterproof, has a buillt-in microphone for speakerphone calls and comes in multiple color options. It’ll ship this spring for $100 and should gradually come down in price over the course of the year.I’ll have a full review shortly before it hits stores. jbl-flip-5-colorsEnlarge ImageAll the new color options.

first_imgWikimedia Commons/BrackezMassimoA Bharatiya Janata Party worker in Ghaziabad has filed a case against her friend for allegedly stalking her, stealing her laptop and posting her photos on social media with lewd captions.The accused has been identified as Thakur Prithviraj Singh. He and the victim were friends from 2002 till 2012 when there was a falling out between the two. Singh had borrowed Rs 20 lakh from her and did not return it, causing a rift in the friendship. She also alleged that Singh took the victim’s car and also did not return it, reports The Times of India.Recently, Singh also stole the victim’s laptop. He even hacked into her Facebook account and uploaded her photos with disturbing comments, which the victim said caused her severe mental trauma. The stress she underwent did not let her fulfil her political duties.”The trauma does not end here. He had sent me several threatening as well as obscene messages on WhatsApp between April and May this year. He has also threatened to kidnap and murder me,” the woman wrote in her complaint, which she filed at the Indirapuram police station in Ghaziabad. She also said that she received acid attack threats from Singh.Singh would pose as a private secretary of senior politicians to get her to talk and then would issue threats to her. The victim said that in the most recent incident, Singh stood outside her residence and told her that she will face the consequences if she doesn’t act according to his demands.The victim is scared and has written to the Prime Minister, the Uttar Pradesh government and the National Commission of Women.The woman went on to confess that she thought of committing suicide many times because of the mental trauma she is going through.The Indirapuram police have filed a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 420 (cheating), 507 (criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication), 506 (criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 406 (criminal breach of trust), 354-D (stalking), and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace).The police also booked Singh under sections 72 (penalty for breach of confidentiality and privacy) and 66A (sending offensive messages through communication service) of the Information Technology Act.last_img read more

first_imgIndia go into the World Cup as favourites and one of the main reasons why they have this tag is their well-rounded bowling attack. Virat Kohli has plenty of attacking options as far as his bowlers are concerned and this gives the captain a lot of confidence.Former Australian bowler and multiple World Cup winner Glenn McGrath believes that India’s pace ace Jasprit Bumrah will play a huge role in shaping India’s journey at the marquee event. He also cautioned that India should not chop and change too much and always stick to their strengths.”If a combination works, I see no reason to change that. Bumrah will be the key to India’s success. He needs to bowl well in the powerplay and at the death. The runs you save in the powerplay really matters,” McGrath said.’Middle overs are important’ Indian cricket team Ian Kington/AFP/Getty Images”Bumrah needs to be accurate, mix his slower ones up nicely. His short deliveries must catch batsmen by surprise, as he did in IPL. Middle overs are very important. This is where many teams let the opposition off the hook. Hardik Pandya’s role here will be important,” he further added.Much of India’s success in ODIs over the years has been because of the consistency of their top order and the Australian legend believes that it should continue even in the tournament. However, according to him, they can only be successful if they are willing to adapt and adjust to conditions and then dig in for the long haul.”As we saw in the last few days, 300-plus is the norm. So India’s top order — Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli — must click. They need to be patient and judicious in shot selection to put runs on the board. It depends upon how they adapt,” McGrath further added. Rohit needs to find formIANSFor India, the form of the openers is a concern as both Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have not looked anywhere close to their best in the two warm-up games. Although captain Virat Kohli did not sound too concerned with his openers, India need them to stand up and be counted on the day when it matters the most.Also, the pitch at Southampton has always been a flat one that produces high-scores, a factor that could force India to go in with Bhuvneshwar Kumar as the third seamer. There could be a toss up between Ravindra Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav as the second all-rounder in the side after Hardik Pandya.last_img read more

first_img“Some parliamentary constituencies are re-demarcated by the Election Commission ahead of every national election, which created controversies and cast adverse impacts on public mind. So, there’s no need for delimitation of constituencies (before next election),” the party said in one of their written proposals. The Election Commission on 24 August last started dialogues with 40 registered political parties to receive their opinions over the EC’s preparation for the 11th national election likely to be held in December 2018. Another proposal says, “The army will have to be kept deployed one month before the election to maintain peace and order. The army members will be engaged to provide security to voters and candidates on the election. And the army will have to be kept in the field to maintain peace and order till 15 days after the voting day.” A 14-member Bikalpadhara delegation, led by its chief and also former president AQM Badruddoza, placed a 13-point proposal participating in an EC dialogue held at Nirbachan Bhaban with chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda in the chair. The dialogue began at 11am. The party, however, proposed deployment of army for 45 days from 30 days before the election and restoration ‘No Vote’ provision. AQM Badruddoza ChowdhuryBikalpadhara Bangladesh on Tuesday urged the Election Commission (EC) not to re-demarcate the parliamentary constituencies ahead of the next general election saying that it will invite controversies.
