The article says that the filing is basically a formality and that Jagermeister and the Bucks are working together to make sure the Bucks ante up some cash come to an agreement in which the Bucks can use the logo.  Share on other sites Members 517 Members wences 65 1 Link to post 26,933 posts hawk36 65 3,160 posts Also, couldn’t they have figured this out sooner than 20 months later?

Stricker appoints Love, Zach Johnson as Ryder Cup assistantsStricker appoints Love, Zach Johnson as Ryder Cup assistants

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Ryder Cup captain Steve Stricker has asked two-time U.S. captain Davis Love III and Zach Johnson to be his assistants for the upcoming matches at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. Stricker previously appointed the last captain, Jim Furyk, to be one of his assistants. The Ryder Cup is still on schedule to be played Sept. 25-27 — one week after the rescheduled U.S. Open. Associated Press Television News COMMENT WATCH US LIVE Written By He referred to Love and Johnson as “strong communicators.” Love was captain at Medinah in Illinois in 2012 when Europe rallied from a 10-6 deficit on the final day, the largest comeback by a visiting team in Ryder Cup history. He was appointed captain again for the 2016 matches at Hazeltine in Minnesota, the first Ryder Cup since players were given more control over decisions. The Americans won for only the second time in eight matches. Europe won in France two years ago.The Americans wanted more continuity when their task force met after the 2014 matches, and one of the arrangements was for two of the assistant captains to formerly have been captains. The other two had to have Ryder Cup experience. Johnson has played on five teams and had an 8-7-2 record. The 2016 Ryder Cup was the last time he played. He was an assistant to Furyk in France, and he was an assistant to Tiger Woods at the Presidents Cup in December. Love played in six Ryder Cups, most recently in 2004. Along with twice being captain, he was an assistant to Corey Pavin in Wales in 2010 and to Furyk at the last Ryder Cup. center_img Last Updated: 12th May, 2020 08:54 IST Stricker Appoints Love, Zach Johnson As Ryder Cup Assistants Ryder Cup captain Steve Stricker has asked two-time U.S. captain Davis Love III and Zach Johnson to be his assistants for the upcoming matches at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin First Published: 12th May, 2020 08:54 IST “Jim and I have talked about this a lot in the last year and now we are happy to add two Ryder Cup veterans in Zach and Davis to the conversation with the goal of putting this team in a prime position to win,” Stricker said.

Archer selection would be morally unfair: WoakesArcher selection would be morally unfair: Woakes

first_imgBarbados-born Archer — described by England all-rounder Ben Stokes as the most “naturally-gifted” bowler he has seen — became eligible for England earlier this year.The 24-year-old Sussex bowler — whose father is English — was the only high-level player to benefit when the England and Wales Cricket Board decided in November to alter residency rules.Previously, players who entered the UK after turning 18 needed to live in the country for seven years to be eligible for England, but the ECB reduced that to three years. Archer arrived in 2015. Woakes told BBC Sport that England, the top-ranked one-day-international team, have become close under captain Eoin Morgan as they prepared for the World Cup which gets underway in England at the end of May.“It probably wouldn’t be fair, morally, but at the same time it’s the nature of international sport,” said Woakes.“If he was to come in and someone was to miss out, it would be extremely unfortunate.“We’ve been a tight-knit group for the last two to three years, played some really strong cricket, won a lot of series.“I wouldn’t want to see any of my mates and team-mates miss out.”But the all-rounder insisted that England would remain focused on the job at hand should Archer get a call-up.“I don’t think it would disrupt the team, because everyone would find a way to move on and we’re trying to win a World Cup for England. That’s the bigger picture,” added the 30-year-old.Archer, who is playing in the IPL for the Rajasthan Royals, has appeared in just 14 one-day matches as a professional, but England coach Trevor Bayliss has said the all-rounder will feature in the ODIs against Ireland and Pakistan in May.Other England pace bowlers have also expressed doubts.David Willey said in March he did not know “whether someone should just walk in at the drop of a hat because they’re available”.Mark Wood said last week that selecting Archer risked changing the “dynamic” of the side.last_img read more

The highlight of Google’s Daydream VR is … its controllerThe highlight of Google’s Daydream VR is … its controller

first_imgNEW YORK | The best thing about Google’s new virtual-reality headset isn’t the headset at all.In fact, Daydream View would pale compared with Samsung’s Gear VR headset were it not for Daydream’s controller, a handheld device that responds to gestures and other motion.With Gear VR, I have to move my head to point a cursor at something, then reach for a button on the headset. With Daydream, I can just aim and click the controller in my hand. Sensors in the device tell the headset what I’m trying to do, whether it’s swinging a tennis racket or casting a fishing rod. The headset’s display responds accordingly. FILE – In this Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, file photo, Clay Bavor, Google vice president of virtual reality, talks about the Daydream View virtual-reality headset during a product event, in San Francisco. Google’s Daydream View virtual-reality headset sets itself apart by including a handheld controller that responds to gestures and other movement. It’s a fine device for its price, but it still needs more apps to make its potential more than a dream. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File) FILE – In this Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, file photo, Clay Bavor, Google vice president of virtual reality, talks about the Daydream View virtual-reality headset during a product event, in San Francisco. Google’s Daydream View virtual-reality headset sets itself apart by including a handheld controller that responds to gestures and other movement. It’s a fine device for its price, but it still needs more apps to make its potential more than a dream. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File) The headset and controller are sold together for $79, starting Thursday. No rush in getting one, though, as the virtual experiences built for Daydream are still limited. And for now, it works only with Google’s Pixel phone .THE MANY FLAVORS OF VIRTUAL REALITYWhile sophisticated systems like Facebook’s Oculus Rift and HTC’s Vive let you walk around in the virtual world, Daydream View is a sit-down experience in which you use the controller to move yourself around. (You could walk around with the Daydream on if you wanted to, but you won’t go anywhere in virtual space — and you might run into the wall.)But the Rift and the Vive each costs more than $1,500, once you include powerful personal computers they require. Suddenly, $79 sounds like a bargain. Daydream stays cheap by using the display and processing power of your phone, which you insert into the headset at eye level.Gear VR, at $100, takes a similar approach, but it works only with Samsung phones. While Daydream works only with Pixel for now, several other Android makers plan to make compatible phones. Sorry, iPhone users.Those without compatible phones still have Google Cardboard, a $15 contraption you hold up to your face. Using Daydream View, by contrast, is more like wearing goggles. While Gear VR has a better fit, with focusing and a second strap over your head to keep the headset from sliding too low, Daydream is much more comfortable to wear and use than Cardboard.ALL ABOUT THAT CONTROLLERThose who’ve played Nintendo’s Wii system will find the Daydream controller familiar. It’s about the size and shape of a chocolate bar, and it has motion sensors to track movement.Although I’m not a big gamer, I enjoyed shooting water out of a hose to put out fires. You simply hold a button to spray and move the controller around to douse flames. You can even tilt the controller to control the angle of the hose. Another app lets you explore the universe by using the controller as a laser pointer to bring up more information.The controller makes it easier to navigate menus without making yourself dizzy; just move it around to point at things. And while getting the full 360-degree experience of VR often requires spinning around (a swivel chair helps), some apps in Daydream let you grab the scene with your controller and drag it around you, just as you would with a PC mouse.It’s also handy to have volume controls and a home button in your hand rather than on your head.NAUSEA FREE?VR can be nauseating, and Daydream is no different. I found that it’s less about the headset, and more about the VR video.The best videos use stationary cameras and let you move your head (or controller) around to explore. The nauseating ones tend to treat VR cameras like regular movie cameras , with a lot of panning in response to a subject’s movements. The viewer, not the subject, should be the one doing the moving.And while I enjoyed watching a woman’s skydive in VR on YouTube, scenes of her preparing to jump felt jarring because the camera was on her shaky arm. I had to remove my headset.WHAT’S THERE TO DO?You can view 360-degree YouTube videos and any 360-degree photos you store on Google Photos. You can visit other destinations such as the Galapagos Islands in a 360-degree version of Google’s Street View. A few games, museum artworks and The Wall Street Journal’s app were also available to try out prior to Thursday’s launch.A handful more are coming Thursday. Even more are promised by the end of the year, including apps for Netflix and Hulu — though all that does is offer video on a giant screen in a virtual living room.There’s much more available for Cardboard. Unfortunately, app developers will need to make some tweaks first to make them compatible with Daydream. They’ll need to do even more to take advantage of the motion control.Daydream has promise, but until more apps arrive, its potential is still a dream.

Strong finish produces GSAC title for womenStrong finish produces GSAC title for women

first_img BY TIM MORRIS Staff Writer A return trip to the Region XIX Women’s Soccer Tournament wasn’t a gimme for Brookdale Community College, Lincroft. Yet, while the Jersey Blues (with several new faces) absorbed some early-season losses, coach Frank Lawrence always looked at the bigger picture. “My approach to the season is to get to the point that, when we get to the tournament, we’re ready to play,” said Lawrence. That was a project this year with such a huge turnover from 2002. The Jersey Blues had just two players returning, but that didn’t prevent them from playing for the Region title in Lincroft. Camden, which shared the Garden State Athletic Conference championship with Brookdale this year, edged the Jersey Blues 3-2, scoring twice in the last 13 minutes of the match to snatch the win away from Brookdale, which had taken a 2-1 lead in the second half on a goal by Kerry O’Mara. It was Camden that went on to the District Championship game, with a trip to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Division III Tournament Final Four at stake. Brookdale put itself in position for another run at the Region XIX title by making steady progress throughout the season. The progress was slower at times than Lawrence would have liked, but in the end, the Blues were a championship team. Brookdale shared the Garden State Athletic Conference title with Camden, with both teams finishing the season with identical 4-0-1 records. The teams played to a 1-1 tie in their only meeting of the conference season. BCC’s overall mark for the season was 10-5-2. “It took a little longer than I initially thought,” said Lawrence. “We weren’t consistent with our play. That’s typical of a young team. “It took a while to find the right people and for the team to learn their new positions,” he added. Everything came together for the Jersey Blues on Oct. 18 in their final Garden State Athletic Conference match of the season, with a 7-0 win over Middlesex. The Blues’ defense held Middlesex without a shot on goal and 11 different Blues scored a point. Middletown North grad O’Mara had two goals for BCC, and Marlboro alumna Jenna Masiello contributed a goal and an assist as the Jersey Blues clinched the GSAC co-championship. Thing began to turn around for Brookdale when 5-foot-10 Tammy Wood, a freshman from South River, became the starting goalie. “She is very athletic and can come up with the big save,” said Lawrence. “She has solidified the way we play defense and given everyone confidence.” Wood closed out the regular season with four straight shutouts. Sweeper Laura North, another Mid­dletown North grad, and Sayreville’s Jes­sica Roy have been the mainstays on de­fense. Roy guards the opposition’s tough­est player, while North is the link be­tween offense and defense. “Our defense has been strong,” noted Lawrence. “We’ve started to play better offensively. We’re getting everyone in­volved and we’re finishing our chances.” Sophomores Maria Lombardi (Freehold Township) and Masiello (Marlboro) have been the cornerstones of the 2003 Blues, not just for their play, which has been outstanding, but their leadership as well. “Maria and Jenna have done a great job,” Lawrence remarked. “They have picked up the scoring, like we needed, and they have done a really, really good job of leadership, keeping the chemistry good.” Lombardi was the leading scorer in the GSAC, with 39 points on 14 goals and 11 assists. Masiello was third with 31 on 11 goals and nine assists. Both are among the top 25 scorers in the country. Midfielders O’Mara and Katie Dooling (Marlboro), and forwards Jessica Zito (St. Rose via Howell) and Tara Driscoll (St. John Vianney) have been making an im­pact on offense also. “We’re well balanced,” said Lawrence. “A different person is stepping up each game.” In the first round of the Region, the Jersey Blues had it gong offensively beating Gloucester, 7-2. Lombardi and O’Mara each netted two goals. BY TIM MORRISStaff Writer last_img read more

Ref calls off title decider as firecracker hurts APOEL defenderRef calls off title decider as firecracker hurts APOEL defender

first_imgBy Staff ReporterTHE Cyprus football association KOP will decide who takes the championship title after referee Demetris Mashias suspended Saturday’s crucial game just six minutes into the second half when firecrackers, thrown by AEL fans, hurt an APOEL player and a doctor.The suspension could dash all hopes for the Limassol side to win the title for the second time in three years, as it was just three points clear of the Nicosia side and needed a win to lift the crown. On the other hand, if APOEL wins the ruling, it could win the title and head confident into Wednesday’s Cup final at GSP in Nicosia against Ermis Aradhippou.Brazilian defender Kaka and doctor Costas Schizas were hurt by a firecracker thrown from the AEL fans’ stands in Limassol’s Tsireion stadium in the 51st minute of the game, when the score was still at a nail-biting 0-0. They were put on stretchers and rushed to hospital. Three minutes earlier, fans from the APOEL stand had thrown other objects onto the field.The record 500 police, brought in to prevent clashes among fans of the two clubs known for their violence, were moved in and after an hour’s deliberation, the referee and his assistants decided the game would be suspended.The police said that fans were leaving rather peacefully, while it also announced that the main roads around the APOEL club in the capital would be closed to traffic, for fear of violent outbursts or celebrations by the rowdy fans.Three points separated the two sides going into yesterday’s title decider with the Limassol club knowing that either a win or a draw would be enough to earn their second championship in three years.APOEL went into the game knowing that only a win would be enough to give them their first back-to-back league titles since the 1948/49 campaign when they sealed three consecutive league wins.The first half saw the home side defend efficiently, and their aim to contain an APOEL team which had no other option than to go for all three points worked well.In a typically heated atmosphere for a game of such importance, the match saw tempers flare leading to more petty squabbles rather than clear-cut goal-scoring opportunities for either side.Ultimately, the match was marred by an incident in which fans through objects onto the field, some of which hit players and staff, leading to the game being suspended with the score at 0-0.APOEL entered the field with the best defence, having conceded just 25 goals in 36 matches, and the most fearsome attack, scoring 77 goals, but it remains to be seen as to whether they can retain their records.While the title remains undecided, both APOEL and AEL will be in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Champions League as the 2014/15 season will be the first to include two Cypriot clubs in the preliminary rounds of Europe’s elite competition.KOP will have to decide whether the game will be awarded to either of the two teams or if the game will be continue from suspension time. Alternatively, there is also the possibility of the game being replayed from the start. (Additional reporting by Andreas Vou)last_img read more
