The Nets finished the season under Jacque Vaughn, who will remain on staff as Nash’s lead assistant.The Nets reached the postseason despite having Irving for only 20 games and Durant for none, but the two stars who came to Brooklyn together last summer are expected to be ready for the 2020-21 season. That made the Nets vacancy an attractive position.In other NBA news:—The Charlotte Hornets have fired play-by-play radio broadcaster John Focke (FOH’-kee) after he used a racial slur on his Twitter account last month. The team announced on Twitter Thursday that Focke would not return due to “a violation of the organization’s social media policy.” The decision comes after the team investigated the matter in which Focke used the slur while Tweeting about the Jazz-Nuggets playoff game on Aug. 17. He has since deleted the tweet and apologized, saying it was a typo.NFL-NEWS Browns acquire safety Harrison from Jaguars for draft pickUNDATED (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have acquired safety Ronnie Harrison in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cleveland gave up a fifth-round pick for Harrison. The loss of rookie safety Grant Delpit for the season with a torn Achilles tendon sent the Browns shopping for a safety and they landed Harrison, who is in his third season from Alabama. The 6-foot-3, 214-pound Harrison made 22 starts for Jacksonville, which selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft. He’s played in 28 games and made 103 tackles along with three interceptions.In other NFL news:—The Seattle Seahawks are bringing back Josh Gordon on a one-year deal as the talented wide receiver awaits reinstatement from the NFL after his latest suspension.

(AP) — Athletics right-hander Daniel Mengden has tested positive for the coronavirus and is quarantined at home in Houston, where he received the result that forced Oakland and Major League Baseball to postpone four games this week. A’s general manager David Forst said Thursday that Mengden is asymptomatic and was placed on the 10-day injured list. The A’s don’t know how Mengden contracted the coronavirus. In other MLB news:—The New York Mets are paying tribute to Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver with a series of salutes. When the Mets took the field for their game at Citi Field against the Yankees, they all had a smudge of dirt on their right knee. That’s a nod to how Seaver’s uniform looked when he pitched, with his knee dropping low to the mound for more power. Seaver died Monday at age 75. His death was announced Wednesday. US-OPEN Greinke struck out a season-high nine in six innings, allowing three runs and six hits.

NASCAR at its discretion grants waivers during its regular season for illness, emergency or personal reasons. The waiver maintains playoff eligibility, if the driver qualifies, but no points are awarded while sidelined. Jimmie Johnson and Austin Dillon both missed one race during the season following a positive COVID-19 test and earned zero points. Dillon won a race — worth an automatic berth in the playoffs — but the seven-time champion Johnson went winless and missed the cut by six points.

Williams plays later in the night against Russian Margarita Gasparyan.In other action:—Matteo Berrettini produced a memorable shot at the U.S. Open — and a reminder that the rules of tennis don’t say the ball must go over the net. Around the net is just fine, too. At 5-all in the third set of his third-round victory, the 2019 semifinalist sprinted to his right, far wide of the doubles alley, to get to a ball that seemed completely out of reach and somehow laced a forehand that went between the net post and the chair umpire, curling in for a winner. The sixth-seeded Italian beat Ugo Humbert 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (6).

Panelists talk about putting intimate information online

first_imgNearly everyone in Doheny’s Friends Lecture Hall raised their hand when Marissa Gluck, the panel moderator for “Privacy and Identity in the Age of Facebook,” asked the audience “How many of you have a Facebook account?”The panelists at the event were Henry Jenkins, a USC professor of journalism, communications and cinematic arts; Whitney Phillips, a University of Oregon Ph.D. student; and Nathan Ruyle, an adjunct faculty member at California Institute of the Arts.Jenkins said Facebook has become part of our culture and allows people to connect with friends from middle and high school. The information people put on their Facebook can define who they are, the panelists said.“In the 1960s, people were disposable and there was no reason to build relationships,” Jenkins said.Social networking forces people to think about how they present themselves to others on the Internet, Jenkins said.Everything a person searches online remains on the cookies that store information on a person’s computer. Social networking sites can track one’s searches, according to Gluck, so marketers are now creating advertisements geared toward one’s specific interests.Facebook has become a “marketing utopia” because it is used for a person’s own publicity and functions like a private marketing campaign, Ruyle said.Some students said they were not aware that marketers and other individuals can collect information based on the websites a person visits.“I didn’t think about data mining,” said Rihao Gao, a junior majoring in political science. “It’s pretty scary.”Phillips suggested people try not to post things they don’t want their grandmothers stumbling upon.“People post things they shouldn’t,” she said. “It’s important to make deliberate choices about what they put online.”For instance, the “Asians in the Library” video posted on March 11 by Alexandra Wallace, a UCLA student, extended beyond her university and created negative press, according to Jenkins.“Why would she post that,” Phillips said. “I don’t understand why people choose to do what they do on the Internet.”Though Facebook has changed its layout and features, from privacy settings to personal information, several times since the site’s introduction in 2004, it remains up to the individual to determine what information they make available to others.“Facebook has responded to that and you can now change settings to show your status only to certain people,” Phillips said.Knowing this information, however, does not deter some students from posting personal information on their Facebooks.“There are so many people here who have pinpointed all the things that are wrong, but we are all still on Facebook and updating our statuses saying ‘I’m at a conference about Facebook,’” said America Hernandez, a freshman majoring in political science.last_img read more
