Schilling came within one out of a no-hitter June 8. And right now, Buchholz stands alone. None of the multi-millionaires in the Boston Red Sox’s rotation has thrown a major league no-hitter. Not Schilling, who is making $13 million this season. Not Beckett ($6 million). Not Tim Wakefield ($4 million). Daisuke Matsuzaka ($6 million) is in his first year in the majors, but never threw a no-hitter in eight seasons in Japan. “You have to have great stuff on a certain night,” Boston manager Terry Francona said Sunday, “but you have to have breaks, too.” Buchholz hurled his masterpiece – a 10-0 win Saturday over the Baltimore Orioles – in just his second major league appearance. Another outstanding rookie, second baseman Dustin Pedroia, saved it for him with a diving stop behind the base. He got up and threw out Miguel Tejada leading off the seventh. Center fielder Coco Crisp also made several good running catches. From news services Seconds after Clay Buchholz finished his no-hitter Saturday, the rookie’s teammates pounced on him in front of the plate. Josh Beckett flashed a big smile, rubbed Buchholz’s head and hugged him. “A lot better than Curt Schilling did,” Beckett shouted. “It was a great day for me and, hopefully, more to come,” a groggy Buchholz said Sunday morning. Soon after the game, he found about 80 text messages on his phone. He finally called his father, “Skip,” back home in Texas about 90 minutes after the crowd stopped cheering. He tried to go to sleep at 4 a.m. and couldn’t, so he got to Fenway Park at 8 a.m. “I’m still living sort of a blur,” he said before Sunday’s game at his locker, where he had Saturday night’s lineup card. “It’s probably going to sink in as the day goes on.” Encarnacion update The damage a foul ball did to Juan Encarnacion’s left eye was the worst the St. Louis Cardinals medical director has ever seen to a baseball player. Dr. George Paletta was not optimistic that the outfielder will regain full vision after his frightening injury and resume his career. “It’s the worst trauma I’ve seen. Absolutely,” Paletta said, adding that the future holds no guarantees. “You hope the best for Juan, but he suffered a severe injury with a very guarded prognosis. It’s way too early to say whether he will or he won’t, and if he doesn’t what percentage of vision loss he may have.” Bat flap is history Bat-gate is over, as least as far as the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays are concerned. Third baseman Akinori Iwamura and his Yankees counterpart, Alex Rodriguez, both had their bats confiscated during New York’s 9-6 win Saturday in one of the more bizarre sequences in the Bronx since George Brett stormed the field in the “pine tar” game on July 24, 1983. “For me, it’s over,” Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. “We got it out of our systems yesterday. They did what they did and we did what we had to do.” First, Yankees manager Joe Torre asked if Iwamura’s unusual model, featuring a flat end rather than a rounded one, was legal. Not to be outdone, Maddon asked the umps to examine Rodriguez’s bat an inning later. A message was left Sunday seeking comment from the commissioner’s office, where both confiscated bats were sent for inspection. Around the leagues Blue Jays: Purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Joe Kennedy from triple-A Syracuse. Kennedy fills the final spot on Toronto’s 40-man roster. Cardinals: Left-hander Mark Mulder will rejoin the rotation for the first time in more than a year on Wednesday, just in time for the stretch drive. Mulder had rotator cuff surgery in September 2006. In his fourth rehab start, Mulder allowed two runs in five innings Friday for triple-A Memphis. Tigers: Kenny Rogers is scheduled to start Wednesday’s home game against the Chicago White Sox, which will be the first outing for the left-hander in more than a month. Rogers went on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season July 26 with inflammation in his left elbow. Twins: Kevin Slowey will be recalled from triple-A Rochester in time for tonight’s game against the Cleveland Indians. The team said it would also purchase the contract of Nick Blackburn from Rochester. Yankees: First baseman Andy Phillips left New York’s game against Tampa Bay because of a right wrist contusion. Phillips was hit by a pitch from Devil Rays starter Jason Hammel with one out in the fifth inning. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm `Brokeback Mountain leads Academy Awards field with 8 nominations
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – The cowboy love story “Brokeback Mountain” led the Academy Awards field Tuesday with eight nominations, among them best picture and honors for actor Heath Ledger and director Ang Lee. Also nominated for best picture were the Truman Capote story “Capote”; the ensemble drama “Crash”; the Edward R. Murrow chronicle “Good Night, and Good Luck”; the assassination thriller “Munich.” The Johnny Cash biography, “Walk the Line,” considered a likely best picture nominee, was shut out, though Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon earned acting nominations for the film. George Clooney picked up three nominations: as supporting actor for his role as a steadfast CIA undercover agent in “Syriana” and best director and co-writer for his Edward R. Murrow tale “Good Night, and Good Luck.” Along with best-actor contender Ledger, and directing nominee Lee, “Brokeback Mountain” scored nominations for Michelle Williams as supporting actress, Jake Gyllenhaal as supporting actor and Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana for their screenplay adaptation of Annie Proulx’s short story. The acting categories were a mix of familiar Oscar faces such as past winners Judi Dench and Charlize Theron, veterans like Clooney, Witherspoon, Rachel Weisz, David Strathairn and Felicity Huffman gaining their first academy attention, and young performers such as Williams and Amy Adams. Philip Seymour Hoffman, the best-actor favorite for his remarkable impersonation of author Truman Capote in “Capote,” joined Ledger in the best-actor category. Hoffman has triumphed at earlier film honors, including the Golden Globes. Along with Hoffman, Ledger and Phoenix, the other nominees were Terrence Howard as a small-time hood turned rap singer in “Hustle & Flow” and Strathairn as newsman Murrow in “Good Night, and Good Luck.” The best-actress race presumably will shape up as a two-woman contest between Huffman in a gender-bending role as a man about to undergo sex-change surgery in “Transamerica” and Witherspoon as singer June Carter, Cash’s musical companion and future wife, in “Walk the Line.” Huffman won the Golden Globe for best dramatic actress, while Witherspoon earned the Globe for best actress in a musical or comedy. Witherspoon beat Huffman on Sunday for the best-actress prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Also nominated for the best-actress Oscar were Dench as a society dame who starts a nude stage revue in 1930s London in “Mrs. Henderson Presents”; Keira Knightley as the romantic heroine of the Jane Austen adaptation “Pride & Prejudice”; Charlize Theron as a mine worker who leads a sexual-harassment lawsuit against male co-workers in “North Country.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Barcelona cope without Messi but Real Madrid are not over Ronaldo’s departure
REVEALED 6 This was the first El Clasico without either of the superstars since 2007 Bale was off the pace throughout With Cristiano gone, this was supposed to be the No.11’s season, unshackled and unleashed like the days at Tottenham that had provoked his move to the Bernabéu in the first place. Instead, he hid when things got tough – not for the first time in recent weeks.Bale was not the only one to blame nor the only passenger, and was instead representative of a team looking in need of a major shake-up.Madrid’s temporary resurgence in the match, marked by Marcelo’s goal following a tactical change to three at the back after half-time, only lasted as long as the 20 minutes it took Valverde to make his own change in response, after which Barcelona scored their third and the visitors crumbled once again.Two more Barça goals followed in the space of eight minutes, and at least two on top of that would have been added had the final ball been better. The writing is on the wall for Julen Lopetegui Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions 6 Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho tormented Real Madrid all game RANKED 6 MONEY Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade For Barcelona, Messi’s injury meant it was up to someone else to seize the reins of the Catalan side, in a dilemma that will only become more relevant as the 31-year-old inevitably begins to slow down in the coming years.It also left Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique as the only surviving starting players from the Pep Guardiola era, the dazzling football of which had elevated this fixture to a new level of recognition.Ernesto Valverde had trusted Rafinha to play the role of Messi on the right, the left-footed Brazilian tasked with imitating the talisman’s movements from the flank inside and looking for the diagonal ball to Jordi Alba on the overlap.Continuing to pursue that approach was worth the effort: it was on the Catalan left-back’s side that Barcelona hammered Madrid in the first half. There is always a huge amount of anticipation when Barcelona and Real Madrid play.However, the fact this was the first edition of El Clasico in 11 years without the presence of one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi provoked plenty of pause for reflection in Spain. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? ADVICE 6 no dice Suarez scored a hat-trick against the hapless Los Blancos Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 6 huge blow Varying his movement between pulling Raphael Varane and Nacho to the flanks or dropping deep to dribble away and draw defenders out in the middle, Coutinho created space for other players to attack and helped Barcelona to connect their lines on the pitch.The Brazilian doesn’t have Messi’s prolific talent in front of goal, but his goal on Sunday – a fourth in La Liga this year – showed he will still chip in with plenty, including on the big occasions.Perhaps just as importantly, the intelligence, decision making and movement he showed suggested that there is also the quality to be a bigger influence on Barça’s overall play in a future, where he will inevitably be asked to pick up more slack.For Madrid, there was far less cause for optimism. 6 Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card With Messi on the pitch, who knows what the score would have been.Without him it was resounding regardless, a hint that the Blaugrana machine better prepared to keep rolling on for years to come, while Madrid’s looks rusty, broken down, and in desperate need of repair. Real Madrid’s ageing side seemed to have no idea on how to deal with Barca’s attacking flair BEST OF Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move REVEALED Nacho, starting at right back for Los Blancos, had been a fitness doubt just before kick-off, ultimately managing to shrug off his niggle.The Spain international must wish he hadn’t: Alba and Philippe Coutinho tormented him from the start and rarely stopped, aided by Gareth Bale doing nothing to help his full-back.Released by Ivan Rakitic, Alba had time to pause, pause again, then patiently and cold-bloodedly pick out Coutinho’s late run into the area for the Brazilian to fire home the opening goal, unmarked, with only 10 minutes gone, in a sign of a trend that would continue for much of the match.If Rafinha was given the job of tactically imitating Messi, it was his compatriot in the number seven shirt who most resembled the number 10 in terms of his influence on the game. Would the game still deliver the adrenaline-inducing excitement for which it has gained a global reputation in the modern era, without two of the greatest players of all time leading the charge?By the time substitute Arturo Vidal headed in the sixth goal of the game with four minutes left to play, that question had been resoundingly answered.In many ways Sunday afternoon’s clash served as a glimpse into the future for both teams. Cristiano is already gone but for Madrid, the likes of Marcelo (aged 30), Luka Modric (33) and Sergio Ramos (32) soon will be too.A generation of elite level winners that will soon need replaced, just as is the case with their rivals. Latest Football News The coach can be changed and it’s understood Lopetegui said goodbye to the players after the thrashing by Barca with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte set to step in for him.But at least until January the list of players cannot, and the fact that it was the same veteran names providing the brief moments of positivity – Marcelo, with his third goal in three games, being the obvious example – is a reason to be concerned.The younger players are not delivering, the older ones are winding down, and others who were supposed to be improved with a greater deal of trust afforded to them are instead declining in impact.Bale in particular will leave the game with less credit to his name, his presence on the pitch only really made apparent by his absence when Nacho needed him, or his failure to be decisive on the few occasions where Madrid managed to release him in the final third.

DONEGAL saw off Mayo in a challenge match today – winning by 1-14 to 3-07.But the match was more about remembering the late Garda Robbie McCallion at the club he loved – Swinford.Garda McCallion died in April 2009 while on duty in Letterkenny.He was knocked down and fatally injured by a car thief.Today the community in his native Swinford came out to honour him. Garda McCallion was part of the Swinford team that won an Intermediate title in 1999 and represented Mayo at under-21 and senior level. Today the club’s new all-weather pitch was dedicated in his honour.The day began with a game between Swinford and a Garda Selection.Swinford and Mayo GAA legend Dr. Padraig Carney flew home from America especially for the occasion.Swinford GAA Chairman Michael Murtagh said:: “Robert was a huge part of the club and the community and was an extremely nice person. He always had a smile. He was a truly dedicated member of the Swinford team and brought that same dedication as a player. “He was a totally different person on and off the pitch. He was on the successful Swinford minor team of 1997 which won every match they played that year. He would have been a driving force on that team.“He played mainly centre half back. He travelled from Donegal to Swinford all the time to train and never transferred clubs.”DONEGAL SEE OFF MAYO AS THE LATE GARDA McCALLION IS REMEMBERED was last modified: May 6th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL SEE OFF MAYO AS THE LATE GARDA McCALLION IS REMEMBERED
Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Economy full of jolly surprises
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Last year, the 19-year-old was waiting tables, but now he’s working in a tax office. He had his eye on clothes, electronics and gaming systems. He said he is shopping online as well as at the mall. As he forked out cash on gifts for his relatives, his optimistic mood mirrored that of the nation. The Conference Board, a nonprofit organization that tracks shopper sentiment, said Tuesday that its consumer-confidence index had risen to 98.9 in November, sharply above what analysts expected. That, combined with a 55-cent drop in gasoline prices since they hit a record high in September of $2.999 in Los Angeles after Hurricane Katrina, makes shoppers such as Ana Solares increasingly likely to spend on holiday gifts. The 35-year-old Westlake Village resident economizes all year and clips coupons to purchase gifts for her three children. “I end up saving about $2,000,” she said, grabbing a bit of rest at the Simi Valley Town Center. “And I still go over budget.” At a time of year when a little good news goes a very long way, things are looking up on the economic front. According to a series of reports released Tuesday, consumers’ optimism is at its highest level since August, orders for pricey durable goods are up, and home sales made their biggest one-month gain in more than 12 years. While the economy hasn’t completely escaped the slow-simmering malaise of the past few years, shoppers are feeling good as they plunge into their holiday buying. “It’s a little bit … easier on the pockets since I’m getting paid a lot more,” said James Blake of Los Angeles, shopping at the Glendale Galleria. “I don’t have to think about it as much.” Folks like her pushed same-store sales up 5.1 percent last week over the same period a year earlier, according to numbers released Tuesday by the International Council of Shopping Centers. Though that’s inflated by unusually long hours for Black Friday shopping, it still represents the strongest increase since June 2004. “We saw in the last couple months that consumers perceived inflation becoming a problem, but it’s come back a lot,” said Mike Niemira, the trade group’s chief economist. “We’re not out of the woods, but we’re in the sweet spot between the drop in gasoline prices and the next home-heating bills.” That’s not to say all the news is good. Even with eight weeks of declines at the pump, at the $2.448 the Automobile Club of Southern California says motorists are paying in Los Angeles, a gallon of regular is still more than 17 cents costlier than a gallon was a year ago. Household heating bills – whether for natural gas or, on the East Coast, heating oil – are also expected to leap upward. And though unemployment is relatively steady at 5 percent, there’s also gloomy news, such as General Motors layoffs on the horizon and Delta Airlines bankruptcy battles. Still, consumers want to buy, and retailers are more than happy to accommodate them with discounts, cheap financing and delayed-payment plans. “We still see a great deal of the wealth effect taking place,” said Aubie Goldenberg, a partner in Ernst & Young’s Los Angeles retail group. “People still want to feel good about the way they’re living, so they’re still buying. Maybe they’re treating themselves above their means.” Becky Wray of Northridge, with a bag on each arm at the Northridge Fashion Center, conceded she overspends but said that’s an annual occurrence. “I tend to spend too much every year,” the 56-year-old Wray said. “I figure I’m going to buy a certain number of things for each person, and when I’m done, I’m done.” Staff Writers Alex Dobuzinskis, Lisa M. Sodders and Angie Valencia-Martinez contributed to this story.

Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm More Fossil Forests Found in Antarctica
The extent of fossil forests buried in the coldest continent on earth continues to grow and astound explorers.Last November 17, 2017, we relayed findings about fossil forests discovered by Erik Gulbransen’s team in Antarctica, with wood “so well-preserved in rock that some of the amino acid building blocks that made up the trees’ proteins can still be extracted.” Now, National Geographic reports that five new fossil forests have been found. The article is part discovery and part adventure story, as the team endured incredible hardships in “one of the harshest environments on the planet.”The team is wedded to the view that these fossil forests date to the time of one of evolutionary science’s mythoids, the Permian Extinction. (It’s one of many beliefs that is taken for granted based on the geologic column and belief in slow, gradual, progressive, Darwinian evolution.) By looking past the adventure parts, questioning the evolutionary parts, and doubting the dates, a perceptive reader can detect some anomalies with the evolutionary story:“Gondwana was humid and carpeted with a network of hardy plants. As the turbulent climate shifted from hot to cold on a sometimes monthly basis, the streamlined foliage would have needed to withstand extremes.” Clearly this part of the world, now frozen in ice, was capable of supporting large plants, even though nothing can grow there now.“But then, a massive extinction event pulsed through the land. It catapulted nearly all life to an end, obliterating more than 90 percent of the world’s species at the time.” In science, it’s not proper to invoke ad hoc scenarios to keep your world view from being falsified. Evolution is supposed to be about progress, not extinction.“What caused this die-off, called the Permian extinction or the Great Dying, is still shrouded in mystery. Clues to the massacre come to us in the form of fossilized trees, but much of the reasons behind this extinction remain unsolved.” In other words, this fossil evidence does not support the mythoid of the Permian extinction. Why believe in a mythoid if it is “shrouded in mystery” and has no known cause?“What we know about the Permian extinction we know through marine fossils of animals that once lived in the oceans. Many scientists agree that during this period about 299 to 251 million years ago, a volcanic event triggered a crisis that exterminated about 90 percent of all species on the planet. It eradicated more than 95 percent of marine species and more than 70 percent of all land species.” Now they propose a mechanism—a volcanic eruption—after having just said the cause is unknown. They say it eradicated 70 percent of all land species, but just said what they know about the Permian extinction comes from marine fossils.“But beyond the broad outlines, a number of the details are unclear. Some geologists and paleontologists say the Permian extinction occurred over 15 million years, but others say it lasted 20,000 years—a blink of an eye in the scheme of geologic time.” They know less than their triumphal claims suggest. Broad outlines can be wrong. The devil can be in the details.“The fossilized trees look a lot like the petrified forests of Yellowstone National Park. Before this expedition, science wasn’t sure if the Permian interval was preserved in sedimentary rocks in Antarctica, but the expedition members think the sedimentary succession they discovered happened at the same time as the extinction interval.” As we reported before, the Yellowstone fossil forests were buried in mudflows, contrary to what evolutionists had taught for decades. (28 Sept 2015).“‘I’m trying to put a puzzle together, but I have no reference picture to do it,’ Ryberg says.” What’s wrong with the reference picture from Yellowstone?“Permian-era plants are like nothing alive today, Ryberg says. She studies a group of foliage in the genus Glossopteris, which is characterized by woody plants dated roughly 300 to 200 million years ago.” This observational fact does not imply evolution. Many “weird” plants are extinct, and many weird plants remain with us today.Issues with the dates should still bother evolutionists. The last report in November said that they could still extract amino acids from the proteins. This is from plants said to have perished “299 to 251 million” Darwin years ago.So let’s see here now. They have a name for a mythoid (“The Permian Extinction”) without an identifiable cause, that lasted they don’t know how long, dated to a time with 50 million year error bars, known from seashells but implied for trees, that is still shrouded in mystery after a century of treating it as a fact. The fossil forest looks like the Yellowstone case, but they don’t make the connection as to the mechanism, which certainly did not require 20,000 years or more (the trees in Yellowstone were buried probably in a day). The observational fact that should be screaming for attention is the preservation of the amino acids and possibly other original material. Last November they said, “What’s more, fossil microorganisms and fungi have been preserved inside the wood.” How can they possibly believe that this wood is at least 251 million Darwin years old? Is there anyone in the Darwin Party who could take an unbiased look at this belief and admit it’s crazy?But you know what they are focused on instead? Climate change. They’re studying the mythoid of the Permian extinction because they think humans might be causing another extinction event by burning fossil fuels. “Whereas other extinction events have been triggered by natural causes, the one we may be in is likely driven by habitat destruction, climate change, and pollution, among other factors” – all human-caused, you see. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself.That’s evolutionary science. A string of mythoids held together by faith, occasionally interrupted by anomalous facts, used to lecture everyone else on global warming.
