Detroit Defenseman Niklas Kronwall Retires After 15 Seasons (Video)

No Comments on Detroit Defenseman Niklas Kronwall Retires After 15 Seasons (Video)

first_imgDETROIT — Niklas Kronwall is retiring after 15 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings.The hard-hitting defenseman announced his retirement in a video Tuesday on the team’s Twitter account. He will remain with the Red Wings as an adviser to the general manager. Kronwall played in 953 games in his NHL career and was part of the Detroit team that won the Stanley Cup in 2008.“They say every journey has to come to an end,” Kronwall said. “My journey as a player for the Detroit Red Wings ends here.”Kronwall had three goals and 24 assists in 79 games last season.The rebuilding Red Wings are in their first offseason since the return of Steve Yzerman as general manager. They have missed the postseason three straight years.“My best memory as a Detroit Red Wing is obviously when we all got to hoist the Stanley Cup in 2008,” Kronwall said. “We’re going to get back there. I just won’t be a player when it happens.”Kronwall’s future was uncertain when 2018-19 ended, but he’d shown over the past couple seasons that he could stay healthy.“I was a 22-year-old kid when I came over from Sweden. Now at 38, I have my own family here,” he said. “Detroit has become home for us. This franchise, this city and the people of Michigan have shaped me into who I am today.”Kronwall joined the Triple Gold Club in 2008 when he added a Stanley Cup title to the gold medals he’d won at the Olympics and world championship.“I had the pleasure of playing with Niklas early in his career, and it was evident from his first season what a special player and person he would become,” Yzerman said in a statement. “He was among the NHL’s best two-way defensemen of his era and will go down as one of the greatest at his position in Red Wings history.”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Saying Cheers with Anniversary Beers

No Comments on Saying Cheers with Anniversary Beers

first_imgThe annual recognition of a birthday, time spent together as a couple, a business venture or any significant milestone is the perfect excuse to gather friends and family to throw a party. It’s common to pop a bottle of champagne or open a cellared wine to celebrate one of those special occasions. But beer has a special place in the world of anniversary beverages as well. A large number of breweries produce limited edition beers to mark another year in the life of its business. These “anniversary ales” are typically crafted with unique ingredients and many of the recipes vary from year to year. The next time you have a day to remember, grab one of these special brewery anniversary brews to celebrate in style.Westbrook Anniversary SeriesMount Pleasant, South Carolina’s Westbrook Brewing Co. has released 5 anniversary beers to date, including the first release of the highly regarded Mexican Cake. The last two years have seen the debuts of Fourth Anniversary Chocolate Coconut Almond Imperial Stout and Fifth Anniversary Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Stout. These are big dessert beers, chock full of robust flavors that can be hard to recreate in a glass. Lucky for us, the brewers at Westbrook are magicians and regularly surprise and delight with these year-end releases.Firestone Walker Anniversary SeriesFirestone Walker Brewing Co. makes delicious, burly dark beers. Parabola, Stickee Monkee, Bravo and Velvet Merkin are all first class brews in their own right, but for last year’s release of Firestone 19, barrel aged versions of those beers were all blended together for an exciting, all-new tasting experience. Notes of specific original beers shine through, while at the same time blend together for a broader sensory experience. Previous years’ anniversary releases have seen vastly different blends of the brewery’s flagship and more limited release beers.Stone Anniversary SeriesStone Brewing does everything big. From the insane hopping of its India Pale Ales to the higher-than-most alcohol levels in Russian Imperial Stouts, Stone has a reputation for being up-front and in your face. Its Anniversary line of beers continues that trend by creating new, unexpected flavor combinations in large format bottles. The summer of 2016 marks Stone’s 20th year and they are celebrating with an invitational beer festival and, if tradition holds, a new beer release. Previous anniversaries have brought Thunderstruck IPA, a double IPA with 100% Australian hops, Escondidian Imperial Black IPA and Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.Whether you’re celebrating another year around the sun, six months with that special someone, or 24 hours since your last beer, check out a brewery anniversary ale to make the date that much sweeter. 9 Best Fall Beers to Drink This Year, According to the Brewing Experts Editors’ Recommendations Elysian Brewing Celebrates Moon Landing Anniversary with Special Labels Why Tea and Beer Go Well Together (and 5 Tea Beers to Try) The Best Coffee-Infused Beers to Flip All the Switches Jameson Releases Two New Caskmates Editionslast_img read more

No Comments on Konecranes Secures Loan to Buy Terex’s MHPS

first_imgzoom Finnish manufacturer of cranes Konecranes Plc has signed EUR 1.5 billion (USD 1.6 billion) unsecured financing facilities to fund the proposed acquisition of US-based Terex Corporation’s Material Handling & Port Solutions (MHPS) business.The company said that the committed credit facility includes a syndicated EUR 300 million term loan with a tenor of three years, EUR 600 million amortizing term loan with a tenor of five years and EUR 400 million revolving credit facility with a tenor of five years, alongside a EUR 200 million bridge term loan facility.Furthermore, the revolving credit facility would be used to “refinance the existing EUR 200 million revolving credit facility signed in December 2015 and the EUR 100 million revolving credit facility signed in February 2014,” Konecranes said.The two companies postponed their merger in February 2016, and subsequently decided to terminate the initial plans and instead signed an agreement for the acquisition of Terex’s MHPS segment in mid-May.The acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, and is expected to close in early 2017, Konecranes earlier said.Valued at EUR 1.13 billion (USD 1.28 billion), the MHPS acquisition would improve Konecranes’ position in the Industrial Lifting & Port Solutions market, according to the company.last_img read more

Rabat – Fifteen minors who allegedly sexually assaulted a donkey in the small rural town of Sidi Kamel in the communal providence of Sidi Kacem have been treated for rabies infections received from the animal.The 15 children and teenagers stayed at the Mechraa Belksiri Hospital for one week to receive rabies vaccinations after the animal transmitted the disease to them, claimed Moroccan daily Al Akhbar in its August 10 edition.The incident has put the families of these fifteen young people into distress and horror, reports the daily. Local authorities have been alerted and search for find anyone else who has “approached” and “admired” the animal closely, in order to limit the risk of rabies spreading among the inhabitants of the region.The alleged incident became the subject of mockery and ridicule among the population of the small town.However, it has also become a subject of fear and shame for parents who, in the utmost secrecy, hastened to have their children vaccinated in case they had approached the animal.According to the daily, the number of infections could be much higher, as some families preferred to take their children to hospitals outside the region to avoid humiliation.The local authorities ordered the owner of the animal to slaughter it to avoid further risk of spreading the disease.Update: According to a thorough investigation conducted by Moroccan news website Ledesk, the incident, which was widely reported by Moroccan and international media, turned out to be a hoax. read more

Office of Ontario ombudsman reviewing cannabis delivery complaints

No Comments on Office of Ontario ombudsman reviewing cannabis delivery complaints

TORONTO — The Office of the Ontario Ombudsman says it has received complaints over delays in the delivery of cannabis in the province, almost two weeks since the drug was legalized across the country.In an email Monday, spokeswoman Linda Williamson says there is no formal investigation, but staff are reviewing all complaints against the Ontario Cannabis Store and resolving them informally wherever possible.She says the office has been receiving complaints “over the past several days,” but did not say how many have been filed.The online Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) is the only legal retailer of cannabis in the province, and private retail brick-and-mortar stores aren’t set to open until April next year.Williamson says if the ombudsman decides to pursue a formal investigation, the process is to first inform the organization in writing and then announce it publicly.She adds the ombudsman has been in contact with OCS officials and is monitoring developments.Ontario residents have expressed their frustrations on social media at the delays, saying consumers have no other legal means of purchasing cannabis while they await their orders.The provincially run OCS warned on its website last week that delivery times for their orders may be longer than expected due to “unbelievably high demand” and labour action at Canada Post.It said in a statement Thursday that it has processed more than 150,000 orders since Oct. 17 and has added “additional capacity” to its processing facility to meet the “unprecedented demand” for legal marijuana.The OCS was not immediately available for comment Monday night. read more

Despite Ohio States success against the run USC believes Ronald Jones is

No Comments on Despite Ohio States success against the run USC believes Ronald Jones is

Ohio State junior defensive end Sam Hubbard speaks to the media on Dec. 27 prior to the 2017 Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorDALLAS — Every team with a stud running back that faced Ohio State’s run defense believed it had the key to breaking through a stingy front that has allowed just 108.8 yards per game, eighth-best in the nation. But the Buckeyes stuffed nearly every high-level back they played against. Penn State’s Heisman Trophy contender Saquon Barkley managed just 2.1 yards per carry on 21 rushes, while Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor had 15 carries for 41 yards. Like all other challengers that have come before, USC believes it has a running back — junior Ronald Jones — who can break through.And while Jones sits in the shadow of potential No. 1 NFL draft pick quarterback Sam Darnold, he might be the key to a USC victory in the Cotton Bowl Friday.“They’ve done a good job against some really good running backs,” Trojans offensive coordinator Tee Martin said Wednesday. “But Ronald, I think, is different than some guys they’ve seen.”Jones sits at No. 5 in the record book for most rushing yards in USC history with 3,555 yards. This season, he has racked up 1,486 yards on 242 carries and became the first player in the program since Lendale White (2004 and 2005) to rush for at least 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons. Through 12 games, he has 18 touchdowns on the ground and has added 14 catches for 187 yards, with a touchdown.“I don’t know if, number one, I haven’t coached one like him,” Martin said. “I don’t know if in my career I’ll have another one like him.”Ohio State sophomore linebacker Malik Harrison (39), Damon Arnette (3) and Damon Webb (7) take down Penn State’s Saquon Barkley in the third quarter in the game against Penn State on Oct. 28. Ohio State won 39-38. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe challenge Jones presents to Ohio State in Friday’s Cotton Bowl differs from its prior matchups against top running backs. His combination of speed and acceleration with unexpected power from a 6-foot, 200-pound frame differs from the unexpected speed of Taylor and Barkley, both of whom weigh at least 15 pounds more than Jones.While Taylor and Barkley look physical and surprise defenses with their speed, Jones’ speed is well documented, where his physicality and power can shock the opposition.“He kind of takes a, what you call a raised step right before he gets hit and really delivers a blow, as opposed to a guy just continuing to run,” Schiano said. “That is something that I don’t know if it’s coached or not. You don’t see a lot of guys that are able to do that. I think that’s kind of a gift. And if you make a mistake, the one thing, he’s gone.”Redshirt junior defensive end Sam Hubbard said he believes Barkley and Taylor are “typical Big Ten-great running backs,” but Jones is smaller and much faster than them. Regardless, he said, the defensive gameplan does not change. “Everything’s the same,” Hubbard said. “You’ve got to be fundamentally sound, stay in your gaps and build a wall.”That wall has held strong nearly every game, though a few players — such as Iowa’s Akrum Wadley, who rushed for 118 yards on 20 carries — have broken through. Even Barkley managed a 36-yard rush in his 41-yard performance against the Buckeyes.The Trojans hope Jones can break through that wall, but are prepared to sub in backup running backs. Martin said all four tailbacks — Jones, Stephen Carr, Vavae Malepeai and Aca’Cedric Ware — are healthy for the first time this season.“We can go big, we can go small,” Martin said. “We can go fast or faster with the four backs that we have.”But the Buckeyes feel confident that they can counter the Trojans’ stable of running backs with their dominant defensive line rotation.“If they’re going to keep cycling running backs in and running the ball, their offensive line is going to get worn down,” Hubbard said. “I feel like we have that advantage in at least the rotation if they try and go up-tempo just because we’re so deep at the defensive line.”Though the Trojans plan to rotate running backs, Jones will be the key to kick-starting a run game that became more important late in the year.During the final stretch of the season, Jones became USC’s featured offensive weapon. After having more than 20 carries just once through the Trojans’ first nine games of the year, he had 25-plus carries in each of the final four games, tallying at least 122 yards in each contest. Ohio State quarterbacks coach Ryan Day told the defense Jones would be one of the top-two running backs the Buckeyes face this season, along with Barkley, sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa said. But the ever-confident, second-team All-American is not worried.“[Jones] was a track guy, so he’s really fast and he’s a pretty big dude,” Bosa said. “So we just have to bottle him up. “We’ve done pretty well with that this year so it’ll be just like the same.” read more

Space shuttle replacement

No Comments on Space shuttle replacement

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and aerospace pioneer Burt Rutan have announced they’re building a giant plane and spaceship to zip people and cargo into orbit. But unlike traditional rockets and government spaceships, this new commercial spaceship will drop from a high-flying plane instead of blasting off from a launch pad. Mr Allen and Mr Rutan join a field crowded with Silicon Valley veterans who grew up on Star Trek and now want to fill a void created with the retirement of NASA’s space shuttle. Several companies are competing to develop spacecraft to deliver cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station. The duo won a prize in 2004 with a spaceship that went into space but not orbit. Their new business model includes tourism and satellites. Their new plane will have a wingspan of 116 metres, longer than a football field.last_img read more

Turkeys peaceful invasion into Greece

No Comments on Turkeys peaceful invasion into Greece

first_imgGreece has been hoping for foreign investments to help shore up the economy, but the kind of foreign investment it has been attracting recently is probably not what the country’s leadership had in mind. A wave of wealthy Turks are acquiring property in Greece, rapidly earning a place among the most dynamic buyers in the market, along with the British, the Germans, the French and the Italians. Turkish property investment in Greece has been on the rise since the beginning of the crisis, when property prices started to drop, but the trend has mostly been modest so far. According to official Bank of Greece data, the number of buyers from Turkey increased by 11.7 per cent in 2012 and 10.9 per cent in 2013; however, market professionals claim that demand has taken off during 2016, especially after the failed coup in Turkey. Spurred by political insecurity, many wealthy Turks are eyeing Greece as a relatively safe place for property acquisition. Investors are mostly coming from the western part of Turkey, specifically Istanbul and the Aegean coast − they represent the country’s upper classes; their income is well above median and their education level is high. Most of them see Greek land as a safe investment in a time of political turmoil, but few of them are actually looking into relocating to Greece. This kind of peaceful Turkish ‘invasion’ is still in the very early stages, but it will certainly have an impact on the market − and on the relationship between the two neighbouring countries.

Slowmoving landslide near Oso closes State Route 530

No Comments on Slowmoving landslide near Oso closes State Route 530

first_imgOSO, Wash. (AP) — The discovery of a slow-moving landslide near the site of a 2014 Washington state mudslide that killed 43 people has prompted transportation officials to close a state highway until Thursday.Crews with the Washington Department of Transportation were notified last week about ground movement near Montague Creek along the south side of State Route 530 near the tiny northwestern town of Oso. On Friday, crews saw additional movement at the site and the road was closed as a precaution. The area is about 60 miles (97 kilometers) northeast of Seattle.Geologists say the mudslide is the “reactivation of small portion of a previous landslide,” said Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.Officials believe that recent heavy rains most likely contributed to the ground movement.Authorities sent out a voluntary evacuation notice to about a dozen homes in the area.The new landslide is about two miles west of the site of a deadly March 2014 mudslide that buried the highway under as much as 20 feet (6.1 meters) of mud and killed the 43 people.Tiffany Robles told KOMO-TV she decided to stay at a hotel Friday night instead of taking a long detour to get to get home. The highway closure means people wanting to travel between Oso and the town of Darrington must take an alternate route that adds at least an hour to each trip.last_img read more

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.

Wait — no, I’m not. 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. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. 0 Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves.

Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout).

Disney/Lucasfilm Star Wars: The Clone Wars will reportedly drop off Netflix on April 7, days before Disney is expected to unveil its own streaming service.The beloved CGI animated series’ departure from Netflix, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, isn’t a huge surprise. We found out last summer that the show would be getting a seventh season exclusively on the Disney+ service. It makes sense that that Disney would want the rest of The Clone Wars — which is set between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, and which consists of a feature-length movie and six seasons — on its own platform. last_img read more

Joint Session to Address Marijuana Decriminalization As Municipalities Scramble to Regulate

No Comments on Joint Session to Address Marijuana Decriminalization As Municipalities Scramble to Regulate

first_imgSenate Bill 30 has a deadline of February 24th in order to meet the requirements of Ballot Measure 2.Republican Senator Lesil McGuire of Anchorage has introduced the first large-scale bill regulating marijuana like alcohol in Alaska. The measure includes fine points that lawmakers, police, and the public need to adapt November’s Ballot Measure 2 into a legal framework.Senate Bill 30 lays out a new, more specific definition of marijuana that includes derivatives like hash oil, as well as byproducts like hemp. McGuire says the bill is the first of three that will come out of the Judiciary committee.“It decriminalizes marijuana in the case of 21-year-old Alaskan adults using marijuana for recreational and medicinal uses,” McGuire said, for, “up to one ounce.”The legal defense for transport of marijuana is defined, as well, something the 1975 Ravin decision did not cover even after sanctioning personal use.McGuire’s bill comes as government bodies across the state are mobilizing on measures to create boundaries for legal marijuana use that will be clear to both the public and police. Under SB-30, for example, you cannot drive with “an open marijuana container,” which is further defined as everything from paraphernalia to a broken seal on packaging. Similarly, there is a mechanism for ticketing open consumption—something the city of Anchorage is currently considering.Myron Fanning is deputy chief for the Anchorage Police Department, and said a big concern in implementing the new laws is squaring local rules with those being drafted by the Legislature.“One of the big challenges is telling my officers what they can and can’t do,” he explained. Fanning was part of a delegation the city of Anchorage sent to Colorado for a recent conference on what has been learned a year in to its legalization.Deputy Clerk Amanda Moser  also attended, and thought the conference helped officials learn about different strategies to address many of the unanticipated issues arising from legalization.“One of my main take-aways from the conference was we don’t have to re-invent the wheel here in the municipality of Anchorage,” Moser said after the delegates presented to an Assembly committee looking into commercialization. “We can take what Colorado has done over the last year, what’s been successful, what hasn’t been successful, and use that as we begin to write our regulations.”SB-30 will be introduced to a joint hearing between the Senate and House Judiciary committees on Monday.last_img read more
