jim harbaugh jameis winston crab legs storyLast April, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston set the blogosphere on fire after it was revealed that he stole crab legs and crawfish from a Tallahassee Publix. Eventually, Winston was suspended from the baseball team, though he faced no suspension from the football team for his transgression. Still, it was a big deal.Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who back then was the coach of the San Francisco 49ers, clearly hadn’t heard about Winston’s mistake. In a recent interview recorded for ESPN’s Draft Academy, Harbaugh and Michigan QB coach Jedd Fisch peppered both Winston and Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty with some questions they’ll face from real NFL teams. When Fisch brought up Winston’s “stone crab” issue, Harbaugh, who definitely had no clue what he was talking about, gave Winston a bewildered look. It’s incredible.Here’s a Vine of his reaction, per Barstool. Winston made a number of mistakes in his short time on campus – a few of which weren’t even mentioned in the clip. It’d be interesting to hear whether Harbaugh would be willing to take a chance on him – if he were still in the NFL. read more

In becoming the 18th major-league player to hit four homers in a game (and the second player this season), Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder J.D. Martinez did something rarer than a perfect game. But in accomplishing the feat, Martinez has also become the poster boy of one baseball’s biggest trends: the overnight fly ball-smashing sensation.Martinez began his career as a slap-hitting prospect for the Houston Astros — and to be charitable, he was not successful at it. Over his first three MLB seasons, Martinez had an adjusted on-base plus slugging that was 12 percent worse than average, accumulated negative 1.3 wins above replacement1Taking the average of Baseball-Reference.com’s and FanGraphs’s versions of WAR. and hit for very little power, belting just 24 home runs in 252 games. By 2014, Martinez was struggling so much that Houston released him.“I’m doing everything the coaches tell me,” Martinez told Travis Sawchik of FanGraphs in March about that period of his career. “I’m swinging down on the ball. In BP, I’m hitting low line drives everywhere. In games, it doesn’t play.”But the Detroit Tigers saw potential in Martinez, snapping him up a few days after his release. And Martinez repaid their faith by turning his career around, with the help of a new philosophy at the plate. He became one of baseball’s earliest fly-ball revolutionaries, reducing his ratio of ground balls to fly balls from 0.87 in his first three seasons to 0.64 in the seasons since. And the results were striking. Since 1901,2The first season of MLB’s modern two-league era. only Hall of Fame second baseman Rogers Hornsby increased his isolated power — which is slugging percentage minus batting average — more from his career average through age 25 to his average between the ages of 26 and 29 (Martinez was coming off his age-25 season when the Astros waived him): Ivan Rodriguez.14997.8.235127.7+.086 Harry Heilmann.125118.3.216165.4+.092 PLAYERISOWRC+ISOWRC+ISO DIFF.

Nor is Martinez the only exemplar of the fly-ball phenomenon sweeping across the game; from Daniel Murphy to Yonder Alonso, plenty of players have given their careers new life by way of an uppercut swing.But Martinez might be the best of the bunch.Because of his newfound affinity for fly balls, Martinez — who landed in Arizona via a midseason trade — has remade himself into one of the game’s most dangerous hitters. Over the past four seasons, Martinez ranks as the eighth-best batter in all of baseball according to Weighted Runs Created Plus, which measures how many runs a player generates per plate appearance.Early in his career, it would have been a pleasant surprise if Martinez had hit four home runs in a month. But after Martinez modified his approach, Monday’s accomplishment is just the latest signpost along his road to stardom. And with the red-hot Diamondbacks practically assured of making the playoffs, a national audience will have a chance to get acquainted with Martinez’s power stroke this fall.Check out our latest MLB predictions.

Jose Mourinho moaned about Manchester United’s lack of physicality and blamed most of the injury-prone players.The Red Devils were annihilated by leaders Liverpool in a 3-1 defeat at Anfield meaning they are 19 points behind their arch-rivals and 11 points off the top four after just 17 games.Speaking in his post-match press conference, United manager Mourinho was brutally honest about which qualities his side are lacking, and used Liverpool’s physicality and energy as an example of what to aim for.26 – Manchester United have picked up 26 points after their first 17 Premier League games; their worst points haul in the top-flight at this stage since 1990-91 (also 26 points). Dip. pic.twitter.com/FI2avHKq1D— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 16, 2018Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“First of all, we have lots of problems related to physicality,” the United boss told Sky. “We have lots of players that I could consider ‘injury-prone’, because some of our players are always injured. And it’s not with me, it was before me.“If you look to the stats with Mr.Van Gaal, and before him with David [Moyes], that period there were players that were permanently injured. When you are permanently injured, physicality is difficult to get. Then there are qualities that a player has, and doesn’t have, you cannot improve and cannot make them have.“I give you an example; Robertson, Mane, Salah, Wijnaldum, Keita, Fabinho, they are physical players. On top of that, they are good players technically.“I also have lots of good players technically, but we don’t have lots of players with that intensity, with that physicality. So when the game has high levels of intensity, it is difficult for us.” read more

Zaheer Iqbal, Pranutan in NotebookTwitterAt a special screening of Notebook prior to the release, Bollywood celebrities undeniably touted the Nitin Kakkar directorial as a feel-good film that leaves a mark. Receiving a thumbs up from American YouTube sensation Amanda Cerny along with Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Sidharth Malhotra, Remo D’Souza, Sonakshi Sinha, Iulia Vantur, and Sangeeta Bijlani, Notebook struck the right chord with the celebrities. And in addition to it, the movie has also received positive reviews from critics as well.Marking the debut of Zaheer Iqbal, Pranutan, Notebook showcases the journey of Kabir who finds his love in a woman Pranutan, who wrote her story in a Notebook. Eventually, the book falls in his hand when he is employed to teach six kids in a remote location of Kashmir, thereby tracing Kabir’s his emotional voyage to reach for Firdaus. Produced by Salma Khan, Murad Khetani, and Ashwin Varde, Notebook is directed by national award winning director Nitin Kakkar.And after watching Notebook, critics couldn’t help but shower praises upon the new talents Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan for their debut performance. While the critics found the film’s storyline quite fresh and visually appealing, they felt that somewhere down the line, the screenplay and dialogues felt short in heightening the drama to requisite levels. Take a look.The Times Of India: “‘Notebook’ is an easy watch where you can appreciate the humour, drama and romance. But the film leaves you wanting for more. Perhaps with more creativity in writing, this young romantic saga could have achieved more.”Rating: 3 stars out of 5.Times Now: “Overall, if you are a sucker for old-school romance and are ready to take a leap of faith with Nitin Kakkar’s narrative then Notebook is for you. It’s entertaining, has good music, good performances by the whole cast and captures the beauty of Kashmir quite eloquently.”Rating: 3 stars out of 5.Pinkvilla: “Very subtly, Notebook tries to show the plight of Kashmiris and the kids there who are made to confront the harsh realities of the region. But in the end, love triumphs everything. Though we appreciate the subtle message, the mention of Kashmiri Pandits and history of Kabir’s parents felt forced and unnecessary. Given the social age we live in, such love stories are hard to resonate with but nonetheless, for those who believe in destined love stories, Notebook might work for you!”Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5. read more
Indian stock markets plunged on Thursday witnessing a sell-off for the seventh consecutive session, taking the benchmark indices to their lowest levels in more than 10 weeks. The correction in the markets was largely led by foreign investors who sold blue chip stocks.The S&P BSE Sensex fell below the 28,000-mark, closing at 27457.58, down 654.25 points, or 2.33 per cent. The CNF Nifty dropped 188.65 points to end at 8342.15.Key Reasons for the Sell-offWeak global cues: Correction in global markets on the back of weak US economic data on Wednesday is one of main reasons behind the sharp fall in Indian stock markets. The orders for US durable goods fell in February, suggesting that the world’s largest economy probably slowed sharply in the first quarter.Following the data, key US stock indices declined sharply, with the Nasdaq Composite down 2.37 per cent.The Asian markets corrected lower, taking a cue from the sell-off on Wall Street, with Japan’s Nikkei 225 dropping 1.38 percent.Geo-political tensions: Saudi Arabia announced on Wednesday that it had launched airstrikes in Yemen against Houthi rebels. As a result, crude oil prices climbed over 4 percent, a negative development for the Indian economy. Analysts expect crude oil prices to go up to $60 per barrel if tensions escalate in the Middle East.Low rollovers in F&O segment: Low rollover of the derivative contracts from March series in Futures & Options (F&O) segment, as traders liquidate their positions ahead of fiscal year ending.”Fresh and aggressive call writing is seen at 8550 and 8600 strike which indicates immediate hurdle near to 8575 and a very rare chance of moving towards 8600 zones,” Chandan Taparia, derivatives analyst, Anand Rathi told The Economic Times.Poor corporate earnings forecast: Many analysts expect fourth quarter earnings of Indian companies to be disappointing. read more
sanjeri/Getty ImagesStudy participants often answer questions differently, depending on the questioner’s gender. Sex hormones can affect results, too.The results of an IQ test can depend on the gender of the person who’s conducting the test. Likewise, studies of pain medication can be completely thrown off by the gender of the experimenter. This underappreciated problem is one reason that some scientific findings don’t stand the test of time.Colin Chapman found out about this problem the hard way. He had traveled to Sweden on a Fulbright scholarship to launch his career in neuroscience. And he decided to study whether a nasal spray containing a hormone called oxytocin would help control obesity. The hormone influences appetite and impulsive behavior in obese men.“I was really excited about this project, from what I understood about how the brain works, I thought it was kind of a slam dunk,” he says.Chapman set up the experiment and then left for a few years to attend Harvard Law School. When he returned, the findings were not at all what he expected, “and I was really disappointed because this was my baby, it was my big project going into neuroscience.”But Chapman, who is now a graduate student at the University of Uppsala, says his idea turned out to be right after all.“There was another research group that around the same time came up with the same idea,” he says. “And they ran basically the same project and they got exactly the results I was expecting to get.”That led him to wonder what had gone wrong with his experiment. One possibility was that the hormone he was using, oxytocin, can waft through the air and affect social interactions, especially between heterosexual people of opposite sexes. So he started to worry that hormones from the experimenters could have been messing up his results.One man and two women had been conducting the actual experiments. But when he went to find out which scientist did which test, “nobody had kept track of that, because that’s not something that’s commonly kept track of in science, just in general.”Chapman and two colleagues now argue that’s a huge mistake. In this review paper in the online journal Science Advances, they dig back through the history of science and find many, many other examples of studies that are influenced by whether the experimenter and subject are the same gender.“Even something that’s supposedly as stable as IQ can be affected by the gender of the experimenter,” he says, referring to a study conducted in the 1970s. “If you have a female experimenter with a male student, for instance, you’re going to see higher IQ scores.”It’s also a big problem in pain research. A heterosexual man participating in a pain experiment will report more pain to a male tester than to a female, Chapman says. He suspects this is partly because the man is — subconsciously or otherwise — trying to impress the woman, and partly because the biochemistry of sexual attraction is at work.“If you’re testing out a new drug for pain, and you’re getting these kinds of great results, you might want to look at [the genders of] who’s running the experiment and who’s participating in the experiment, because that could explain it more than the drug itself,” Chapman says.And the subjects of these experiments don’t even have to be humans.In 2014, researchers discovered that the sex of a laboratory worker could completely screw up the results of pain experiments in rats and mice.A sweaty man’s T-shirt in the room, or a swab from a man’s armpit, was enough to skew the results. Even scents from other animals affected the rodent studies.“If you present the male chemical in front of rats or mice, they are stressed and that stress ends up killing pain,” says Dr. Jeffery Mogil, a neuroscience professor at McGill University who led that study.The study got a fair amount of attention at the time. But since? “Scientists change their practices very, very slowly,” Mogil says, “and I think it would be fair to say very little has happened” as a result of those eye-opening observations.In the meantime, scientists continue to come across these problems. Mogil saw a report at the Society for Neuroscience meeting last November, in which mice responded to an antidepressant only when it was administered by men, not women.He and Chapman agree that a simple first step would be for scientists to report the gender of the people who run these kinds of experiments. Editors of scientific journals could require that, or funding agencies. But at the moment, they don’t.You can contact Richard Harris via email.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Kolkata: State Home Secretary Atri Bhattacharya has written to Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Bengal Ariz Aftab on Monday, pointing out excess action on the part of Central Forces during elections in the state, to the extent that they have ‘sometimes appeared to intimidate voters’.He has requested the CEO to take steps to sensitise Central Forces to the needs of voters who are exercising their franchise, so that the perceived need to resort to physical force by the jawans get reduced. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata”There have earlier been complaints about CAPF using excessive force to maintain law and order, to the extent that they have sometimes appeared to intimidate the voters,” the letter stated. Bhattacharya has also pointed out in his letter that there had been five incidents of firing at places like Gopiballavpur, Bishnupur, Moyna, Bhagawanpur and Sabang on the part of Central Forces, in the sixth phase of polls in the state on May 12. He also stated that there were reports of Central Force jawans behaving roughly with voters in queues and even resorting to lathicharge without apparent justification. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe letter further states that Central Force personnel had fired in Parui and Dubrajpur of Birbhum and also beat up members of the public in places like Thanapara and Haringhata in Nadia district in the fourth phase of polls in the state. It also points out the incident of Central Forces using force on sitting MP Prasun Banerjee in Howrah during the fifth phase of election. “CAPF personnel carrying arms have also entered booths in contravention of the Model Code of Conduct. This has been brought to the notice of their senior officers, with the request to brief them more thoroughly about their duties during the conduct of elections,” the letter stated. Bhattacharya has also pointed out delay by Quick Response Teams (QRTs) in reaching places of disturbance due to the presence of only Central Forces in the teams in the sixth phase and urged the Commission to revert back to its decision of including state police in QRTs. It may be mentioned that the Commission has already taken lessons from their experience and has announced that at least one civil constable will be deployed in each QRT in the seventh phase. read more
Tags: State of the State State Rep. Kathy Crawford, of Novi, released the following statement following the governor’s State of the State address Tuesday:The governor began his powerful message quoting the Wall Street Journal from Oct. 20, 2009. The headline read, “The State of Joblessness.” Then, he quoted the Wall Street Journal from Sept. 25, 2017, which read “The Michigan Comeback Story.” I was struck by the short time frame – just nine years – under the governor’s leadership that Michigan has gone from worst in the nation to number one in the nation. With 122,800 manufacturing jobs created and number six in the nation for private sector job creation. Ours truly is a remarkable comeback story.
