Syracuse sophomore Lysianne Proulx started her first game in net on Sunday afternoon, but her offense failed to produce and the Orange fell, 3-1, to Colgate. Although SU (3-4) outshot Colgate (2-2-2) and controlled most of the possession, the Raiders were able to capitalize on their quality chances to beat in-state opposition in Hamilton.Colgate’s defense remained stout throughout the game and limited the Orange to eight shots on goal on 17 total shots. Colgate converted three goals on five shots on net.In the 40th minute, Colgate drew a foul in the box and elected Abby Sotomayor to take the penalty kick. She drilled a shot on the ground to the bottom left corner, opposite of where Proulx guessed. The PK gave the Raiders a 1-0 lead.In the 49th minute, Colgate’s Sage DiGiulio launched a shot from 25 yards out, which floated over Proulx’s fingertips for a 2-0 advantage.Sotomayor was not content with just the penalty kick goal. In the 76th minute, she lasered a long ball off her right foot into the upper right corner to put the Raiders up 3-0.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse answered a minute later with a Kate Hostage penalty kick, which she drilled into the top right corner. Hostage’s goal was not enough for SU to mount a true comeback effort, though.Proulx registered two saves, and none of the three goals were preventable. It is unclear whether her performance earned her the full-time job, as head coach Phil Wheddon has kept his options open. The team returns to SU Soccer Stadium for the first time in September for a Thursday matchup versus Kent State.

Khurtsidze has 32 wins (21 by KO), two draws and two losses from his 36 professional fights since October 2002.CEO Einar Knobel commented: “Having worked with some of the biggest names in the sports betting industry, we felt it was the perfect time to take TXODDS into the sports arena. We were attracted to linking up with British Boxing, and in particular the so far undefeated Tommy Langford, with an agreement which comes just before his next big fight at the Leicester Arena in April.”
Ex-college teammates Todd Gurley and Sony Michel landed with “perfect” teams for them when they were drafted by the Rams and Patriots, according to former Georgia colleague Brendan Douglas.Gurley and Michel, both starting running backs who were drafted in the first round by their respective NFL teams, have returned to the state where they played college football for Sunday’s Super Bowl in Atlanta. “Sony was quiet when he came in and he’s still a pretty quiet guy. … Todd’s not quiet — as you can probably see,” Douglas told Omnisport. Super Bowl 53: Todd Gurley admits he wasn’t impressed with Sony Michel at first GEORGIA‼️A post shared by Todd Gurley (@tg4hunnid) on Jan 24, 2019 at 3:09pm PST”They’re a lot alike as far as players – explosive, can catch the ball well, and run the ball well. But, as far as personality, Todd was very comfortable and talked a lot.”It’s panned out perfect for both of them. They’re happy where they are and obviously both in the Super Bowl. The cities and the organizations kind of fit their personalities a little bit.”Michel’s coach Bill Belichick would likely have taken a dim view of Gurley’s Instagram post after the Rams’ victory over New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game.He uploaded a photoshopped picture of him swapping shirts with an official after a controversial no-call left the Saints furious.And Douglas insists Gurley was being tongue-in-cheek again this week when he suggested he had to teach Michel to “run and catch” when he first came to Georgia.”He jokes around about it, Sony was good as soon as he came on campus,” Douglas said. “Todd definitely took those young guys under his wing, coached them and helped them out wherever he could.” View this post on Instagram Rams star Gurley was taken 10th in the 2015 NFL Draft, three years before Michel was selected as the 31st pick by the Pats, but the pair were on Georgia’s roster in 2014 when future Cleveland Browns back Nick Chubb was the team’s leading rusher.Douglas was the fourth running back on the depth chart that year and he believes extrovert Gurley was made for the bright lights of LA, while Michel suits the team-first environment in New England.

WASHINGTON – The House on Thursday passed a $4.1 trillion budget plan that promises deep cuts to social programs while paving the way for Republicans to rewrite the tax code later this year.The 2018 House GOP budget reprises a controversial plan to turn Medicare into a voucher-like program for future retirees as well as the party’s efforts to repeal the “Obamacare” health law. Republicans controlling Congress have no plans to actually implement those cuts while they pursue their tax overhaul.That’s especially so in the Senate, where the Budget Committee on Thursday gave party-line approval to a companion plan.Instead, the nonbinding budget’s chief purpose is to set the stage for a tax overhaul plan that is the party’s top political priority as well as a longtime policy dream of key leaders like Speaker Paul Ryan.The White House issued a statement saying the House plan is a key step toward “Making America Great Again.”The House measure, passed by a near party-line vote of 219-206, calls for more than $5 trillion in spending cuts over the coming decade, promising to slash Medicaid by about $1 trillion over the next 10 years, cutting other health care costs, and forcing huge cuts to domestic programs funded in future years by Congress.“It’s a budget that will help grow our economy, and it’s a budget that will help rein in our debt,” said Ryan, R-Wis. “It reforms Medicaid. It strengthens Medicare.”But Republicans are not actually planning to impose any of those cuts with follow-up legislation that would be required under Washington’s Byzantine budget rules. Instead, those GOP proposals for spending cuts are limited to nonbinding promises, and even a token 10-year, $200 billion spending cut package demanded by tea party House Republicans appears likely to be scrapped in upcoming talks with the Senate.Instead, the motivating force behind the budget measures is the Republicans’ party-defining drive to cut corporate and individual tax rates and rid the tax code of loopholes. They promise this tax “reform” measure will put the economy in overdrive, driving economic growth to the 3 per cent range, and adding a surge of new tax revenues.“In order to pay for these huge tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, this Republican budget makes savage cuts to the life and death programs that mean so much to ordinary Americans,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.Passing the measure in the House and Senate would provide key procedural help for the tax measure because it sets the stage for follow-on legislation that can’t be filibustered by Senate Democrats. Republicans used the same so-called reconciliation procedure in their failed attempt to kill “Obamacare,” including its tax surcharges on wealthy people.“Through reconciliation, our budget specifically paves the way for pro-growth tax reform that will reduce taxes for middle-class Americans and free up American businesses to grow and hire,” said Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., who chairs the House Budget Committee.Eighteen Republicans opposed the measure, including several from high-tax states like New York and New Jersey who are concerned that the upcoming tax effort would repeal the deductions for state and local taxes.Democrats blasted the sweeping spending cuts proposed by Republicans — more than $5 trillion over 10 years in the House plan and somewhat less in the Senate GOP measure — as an assault on middle-class families and the poor.“Is it a statement of our values to take a half-trillion dollars out of Medicare to give a tax cut to the wealthiest people in our country?” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.The Senate Budget Committee’s companion plan approved Thursday differs in key details — but would still result in a deficit of $424 billion in 2027, according to the Congressional Budget Office.The House measure assumes the upcoming tax bill won’t add to the deficit; the Senate version, however, would permit the measure to add $1.5 trillion to the $20 trillion-plus national debt over the coming 10 years. The final version is likely to stick closely to the Senate measure in key respects. A final House-Senate agreement won’t come until November, Black said, but she anticipated conflict over the Senate plans.“That is certainly going to be a very lively discussion,” Black said of House-Senate talks. “Our members are concerned about (budget) balance and they’re also concerned about the debt and deficits.”The real-world trajectory of Washington, however, is for higher deficits as Republicans focus on tax cuts, a huge hike in the defence budget, and a growing disaster aid tally that is about to hit $45 billion.“The train’s left the station, and if you’re a budget hawk, you were left at the station,” said Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C.___This story has been corrected to change the amount in the first paragraph to $4.1 trillion, not billion.
PARIS – French filmmaker Jean-Jacques Annaud, the maker of Mirage fighter jets and oil giant Total SA are among high-profile French names defending themselves after leaked documents showed they used tax havens.As part of the “Paradise Papers” global investigative reporting, French media reported Wednesday that Annaud used accounts in the Cayman Islands and Hong Kong. Annaud’s directing credits include “The Name of the Rose” and “Seven Years in Tibet.”Annaud’s lawyer, Eric Delloye, told Radio France that the filmmaker informed French tax authorities last month about his offshore holdings as a result of the investigation.Dassault Aviation, maker of Mirage and Rafale fighter jets, acknowledged financial activities in the Isle of Man but insisted that it’s not evading taxes. Energy company Total SA denied hiding money from tax authorities.
Shimla: Himachal Pradesh power minister Anil Sharma seems to be on his way out from the state cabinet.Sharma is the son of former telecom minister Sukh Ram, who had joined the Congress along with grandson Ashray Sharma, Anil Sharma’s elder son recently. In a quick move, the Congress has also fielded Ashray from Mandi Parliamentary constituency for which he had earlier been asking for a ticket from the BJP. Put in a piquant situation over Anil Sharma’s status as a cabinet minister—whose son is fighting the BJP, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Sunday served a clear ultimatum to Anil Sharma to make his position clear on campaigning for the son. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Sharma last week had announced that he will not campaign against his son in Mandi parliamentary constituency though being a sitting MLA from Mandi assembly seat. “Well, if you can’t campaign against your son, the BJP can’t sit back. We have fielded sitting MP Ram Swaroop Sharma from Mandi. It’s the duty of every BJP leader to work for the victory of the BJP candidate. Defiance of the party discipline can attract action. Better Anil Sharma quit the BJP, and the cabinet and opt to go with the son,” Chief Minister said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KOnly some days back, the Chief Minister had held a meeting with senior BJP leaders in Delhi and updated them on Anil Sharma’s position. “It’s very clear that Sukh Ram had dented his own credibility by joining the Congress with grandson. He has also created a serious problem for Anil Sharma – who was brought to the BJP by Sukh Ram in 2017. We gave him a ticket and made a cabinet minister. What else Sukh Ram wanted more than this? he asked. Thakur accused Sukh Ram of changing the parties for his son’s political career but now he has chosen to defect for the grandson. “Next, Sukh Ram will take a jump somewhere else to get a ticket for daughter-in-law or grand-daughter-in-law. This is very serious,” he warned. Meanwhile, the Congress has cleared the name of five-time MLA Ram Lal Thakur for Hamirpur to fight the poll against three-time MP Anurag Thakur.
Redshirt freshman right-hander Adam Niemeyer (43) delivers a pitch against Louisville on April 14. OSU won, 2-0.Credit: Ryan Cooper / Sports EditorAdam Niemeyer was making the second appearance of his collegiate career last season when he knew something was wrong.“I threw a curveball and I just knew it wasn’t good when I threw that pitch. I tried to throw again in another game, but it just kept getting worse and worse, so I got an MRI and found out that I had to have surgery,” the Ohio State redshirt freshman right-hander said.The procedure that Niemeyer had to undergo was ulnar collateral reconstruction surgery, commonly known as Tommy John surgery. It is an operation where a damaged ligament in the medial elbow is replaced with a tendon from elsewhere in the body, and it is becoming almost commonplace for pitchers.Last season, more than 25 major league pitchers required the operation. This year, over 10 have already gone under the knife.For Niemeyer, the elbow problems began during his junior year of high school. After a summer to rest it, however, he felt no discomfort — that is until a game at Oregon on March 7, 2014, when the pain returned.He made one more appearance six days later against Siena after the fateful one in Oregon. In that outing, he gave up four unearned runs. After that night, he was shut down before undergoing the procedure on April 9, 2014.“It was pretty disappointing, just because I was coming off my best outing of the year, really felt like I was contributing to the team, and then hearing that news was just really devastating,” Niemeyer said.Jason Good, the athletic trainer for the OSU baseball team, was tasked with bringing Niemeyer back to full strength.“It’s a pretty long process, as you can imagine,” Good said. “Prior to the ‘80s, you were done, but now we’ve kind of developed a rehab progression where we start off with just range of motion, just moving the joints to get them going, to strengthening the shoulder, elbow, wrist flexors, and now really we’re starting to get even further, to where we’re working from the ground up, and almost rebuilding an athlete.”Good said the timetable to return is set at 12 months from the date of surgery, with a couple of months on either side depending on the success of the rehab.For Niemeyer, it was on the quicker side, as he made his return to the diamond with a scoreless inning against Pittsburgh on Feb. 15 — just over 10 months after the surgery.“I could tell he was down a little bit, because I knew he wanted to be out there with us, especially after a good outing against Oregon, and then he finds out he can’t pitch the rest of the year,” sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson, who was roommates with Niemeyer last year, said. “But he handled it really well. He wanted to get the surgery right away, start the rehab and now he’s back here.”Niemeyer said the support of fellow Tommy John recipients — junior infielder Jacob Bosiokovic and sophomore right-hander Yianni Pavlopoulos — a select group they call “The Zipper Club,” helped him cope with his rehab and recovery.But more than anything, it was the Minster, Ohio, product’s hunger to return to the mound and help his team toward its goal of making the NCAA tournament that drove him.“It’s good to go out there and contribute to the team, help the team win,” Niemeyer said. “That was the hardest part last year, just watching from the sidelines, not really being able to go out there and help the guys.”After six appearances out of the bullpen to start the season, OSU coach Greg Beals handed Niemeyer the ball for his first collegiate start — a start that just so happened to come against a team that was ranked No. 4 in the nation at the time in Louisville on April 14.Niemeyer responded masterfully, tossing five shutout innings and only allowing two hits to guide OSU’s 2-0 upset victory.He then made another start a week later, a 6-3 victory over Morehead State, before returning to the bullpen to toss three scoreless innings of relief against Illinois last weekend.Good said he was not surprised to see the right-hander come back with a vengeance based on his work to get back following the surgery.“Adam’s doing really well. He was a good foundation,” Good said. “He’s kind of the model of, ‘All right, if you have somebody who’s going to get hurt, this is the foundation that you want to work with,’ because he has a good structure, he works hard and he’s driven to want to be back.”While Good said that it usually takes about two years for a pitcher to feel like they did before the surgery, Niemeyer, just over a year removed from the operation, said he feels he is already at that point.“I think I am (100 percent). I feel pretty good,” Niemeyer said. “I still have things I have to work on. I think my control is what I have to focus on to get that back to where it was, but arm-wise, I feel pretty good.”Niemeyer and the Buckeyes are set to close out their home schedule with a three-game series against Maryland from May 8-10. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m., 3:05 p.m. and 1:05 p.m. for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann talks to sophomore center Micah Potter (0) during a timeout in the first half of the game against Iowa on Feb. 10 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorNo. 8 Ohio State just had to win its remaining four games to become outright Big Ten regular-season champions. But going into State College, Pennsylvania, to face off against Penn State, the only conference team that had beaten Ohio State this season, the road was not going to be easy.The Buckeyes left Happy Valley anything but happy after getting mauled by the Nittany Lions 79-56, bringing Ohio State to a tie for first place in the conference with No. 2 Michigan State. Ohio State still holds the tiebreaker for seeding in the Big Ten tournament.The Buckeyes (22-6, 13-2 Big Ten) shot just 39 percent overall and 13 percent from 3-point range, while the Nittany Lions (19-9, 9-6 Big Ten) shot 48 percent from the field, and were commanding from beyond the arc, shooting 45 percent.In the head-to-head matchup between Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop and Penn State sophomore guard Tony Carr, the conference’s scoring leaders, Carr finished with the upper hand, scoring 30 points off 9-for-15 shooting, including 50 percent from 3. Bates-Diop had just 10 points and five rebounds.Penn State went on a near-four-minute scoring drought, but went on a 15-3 run with 1:30 left in the first half to go up 40-19. The first half came to an end with a full-court pass that was caught by Carr on the baseline, who made the layup and the subsequent and-1 to give Penn State the 45-21 halftime lead. It was the largest first-half deficit Ohio State has faced all season.Ohio State began to show some life around the middle of the second half. Trailing by 30 points, the Buckeyes went on an 18-4 run to bring the game to 58-42 with 10:37 left to play. The game got off to a rough start for Ohio State. The Buckeyes had four points from freshman center Kaleb Wesson, but he landed awkwardly on his ankle trying to grab a defensive rebound and was forced to leave the game. Wesson returned with 10:50 left in the first half.After the injury, Penn State sprinted to a 12-0 run that included Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann getting hit for a technical foul for arguing with the referees. Wesson’s four points were the Buckeyes’ only points until junior guard C.J. Jackson made a layup with 13:31 left in the first half. Penn State guard Tony Carr responded immediately with a 3 to bring the Nittany Lion lead to 17-6.
Colombia coach Jose Pekerman is expected to make a last minute decision as to whether to play James Rodriguez in their all-important second round World Cup clash against England considering his state of health or not.Initial scans have shown that the injury suffered by the Bayern Munich star in their final Group H encounter against Senegal are better than first feared.

Pep Guardiola is impressed with the way Riyad Mahrez has smoothly settled into his new surroundings at Manchester City.The Algerian winger joined the Blues from the Foxes and has started one and came off the bench in two of City’s opening three Premier League games.And, speaking ahead of Saturday’s late kick-off with Newcastle United, Guardiola said he was more than satisfied with how the player had adapted to life at City.“I would say quite well, for how quickly he has adapted and especially for the quality,” said Pep.“He’s one of the most technical players I’ve ever seen, the skills and everything.“It’s just, of course, there’s a lot of information – the way we want to play, the way we want to do things, the corrections after the games that we have to do, in all things, defensive and offensive set-pieces.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“But he settled well. He has respect in the locker room and that is the most important thing.”After tomorrow’s visit of Rafa Benitez’s Magpies, the league takes a fortnight’s break with the focus switching to internationals.But asked whether the 2018/19 campaign was shaping up to be an even tougher proposition than last season, Pep said it was too early to judge.“Quite similar, I would say,” Guardiola added.“New managers are here – Marco Silva at Everton, Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea – new managers, new clubs. Javi Garcia at Watford is doing amazingly. But I think it’s too early.“Last season we cannot forget all the six contenders playing international competitions, not like the previous season when Chelsea didn’t play there. It was tough last season it will be tough this one.”
