As hostile environment awaits, is C.J. Beathard ready for prime time?

first_imgSANTA CLARA — Quarterback C.J. Beathard started his first game on the road as a professional almost 12 months ago when the 49ers visited arguably the most hostile environment in the NFL — Lincoln Financial Field — to face the Philadelphia Eagles.Beathard came away battered and bruised, as the eventual Super Bowl champion Eagles intercepted him twice and sacked him four times in a 33-10 drubbing of the 49ers before nearly 70,000 fans.Now a veteran of all of two NFL road starts, Beathard can …last_img

Embattled swimmers hope to make a mark at CWG

first_imgIt is a discipline which has never fetched India any medal in the Commonwealth Games and the swimmers are not exactly expected to create a splash even this time around with a dope slur and concerns about the venue’s preparedness adding to their woes ahead of the event.Indian swimmers have never created much of a buzz at the Commonwealth level given the competition in the pool features powerhouses such as Australia, Canada and England among others.Australia has 557 medals at the Games and are expected to rule the pool even this time.Home advantage could have been factored in India’s favour but the swimmers have hardly got a feel of the still under-preparation Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Complex.Swimming Federation of India (SFI) Secretary General Virender Nanavati says there is nothing like home advantage for the locals.Another swimmer M B Balakrishnan suffered injuries after being assaulted by yet-to-be identified persons, and there are chances that he might also be ruled out of the October 3 to 14 event.Even coaching and training of the swimmers for the Games was not complete without controversy.Nanavati complained that despite the SFI providing a list of 12 coaches to the Sports Authority of India (SAI) and also finalising the name of Australian Alan Thompson as chief coach, SAI failed to strike a deal. This had not just left the federation red-faced but also hampered India’s preparations for the Games.But internal matters are not the only obstacles standing in India’s way of winning medals, there are bigger challenges awaiting the national swimmers during the competition itself.advertisementThe dominant Australians, the ever-improving England and even the South Africans are set to rule the podium.Although three-time Olympic champion Stephanie Rice’s pullout due to a shoulder injury and Ryan Napoleon’s doping ban had weakened the Aussie squad a bit, but it still has the potential to give its opponents a run for their money.Australia’s triple Olympic champion Leisel Jones and former world champion Geoff Huegill would lead a 52-strong swimming contingent.Swimming accounts for 127 medals and despite having some improving bunch of swimmers led by Virdhawal Khade and Sandeep Sejwal, it would be difficult for India to get on the medal sheet but Nanavati wants to stay positive.Nanavati has pinned his hopes on Sejwal, Aaron D’Souza, Rehan Poncha and Khade to bring laurels for the country.”On the basis of their past performances and the way they are training at the moment and making efforts against all odds, I am confident they will shine at the upcoming Games,” insisted Nanavati.last_img read more

This is why Samper left Barcelona

first_imgThe Spanish 24-year-old midfielder has joined former teammate Andres Iniesta at Japanese club Vissel Kobe.Sergi Samper’s career at Spanish La Liga club Barcelona was not an illustrious one.He debuted with the B team in 2013, playing during three years where he appeared in 103 matches.He got his first chance at first-team football in the 2014-2015 Copa del Rey, playing three matches there.But his progress with the Blaugrana was cut short with two loans: Granada and Las Palmas.Now, he has chosen to leave Barça and joined Japanese team Vissel Kobe where his former teammate Andres Iniesta is.“Yes, Andres has been key,” Samper admitted according to Spanish media outlet Marca.“He called me many times and told me Japan was a great place to develop.”“Gerard [Pique] was the one who gave me the news, and I’m very grateful for that,” he continued.“It wasn’t an easy decision, going to Japan at 24 wasn’t something I had thought about.”Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“I’ve seen what is behind the project,” he explained.“I have seen that I can feel loved and valued again, I’m focused on the present.”“I haven’t had good luck, injuries have been a burden for me,” Samper said.“You never know what might have happened without them. I’m convinced things would have gone better for me, although you’re never sure.”Samper will now play together with Iniesta, Spain’s David Villa, and Germany’s Lukas Podolski.📷Photo ReportMarch 2nd, 20192019 MEIJI YASUDA J1 League 2nd Sec.VISSEL KOBE vs. SAGAN TOSUhttps://t.co/EMClbOy5KD#vissel #visselkobe #神戸vs鳥栖 #WeAreKobe #一致団結 #Jleague pic.twitter.com/wpVefwmFjS— ヴィッセル神戸 (@vissel_kobe) March 3, 2019last_img read more

Fighting heavy smoke, Guzman ran to the back and found Gabbana still on her leash, but crouched inside the bathroom, the only room that had not burned.As the video shows, only a few moments later, both of them emerge, running out of the property to safety.With his adrenaline pumping, Guzman said he did not realize that he had been burned on his face and arms, until the rescue was over. His two and a half year old dog was singed on her nose and paws.In the blaze, Jose, his wife and three daughters lost almost all their possessions, including the tools that Jose uses for work.Guzman works two jobs, in construction, and as a landscaper. However, amid the rubble and ruin, Guzman said he sees the blessings. He has his family and their love, including the love of one family member who can’t put her appreciation into words.When asked what does the dog mean to him, he told us with his voice choking up with emotion, “She’s been with us forever. She’s part of the family. We love her.”You can help the Guzman family recover from the fire by donating to their GoFundMe page ( https://bit.ly/2VRoMne ).

When Texans Arent Engaged Texans Dont Vote

first_imgGraphic by John JordanTexas is about to have one of its periodic and deeply disappointing tests of civic engagement — a November election built around constitutional amendments and not around warring political personalities.Conflict and advertising and the tons of news coverage generated by candidates and campaigns drive turnout. It’s easy to chart: More Texans vote in presidential years than in gubernatorial years, partly because of the relative power of those offices but also because of the overwhelming focus on national campaigns. In last year’s presidential election, more than 8.9 million Texans voted. In the 2014 race for governor between Greg Abbott and Wendy Davis, 4.7 million voted.In between those two elections, fewer than 1.6 million Texans turned out for a constitutional amendment election. That one actually had a couple of issues of interest to ordinary voters, including an attempt to lower property taxes for homeowners, a plan to increase state spending on highways and transportation by up to $5 billion and an end to the requirement that statewide elected officials live in the state capital. Each of the seven proposals on that ballot passed easily.Most of the state’s voters slept through it.The 2013 election was a yawner, attracting only 1.1 million voters. Everything passed, including an amendment legalizing reverse mortgages in Texas.2011? Only 690,052 Texans showed up — of the 12.8 million who were registered to vote at the time — to vote on 10 amendments. They voted three of them down, proving that the few who bothered weren’t there to simply smile and nod. Still, the relatively local and technical measures on that ballot failed to attract a crowd.The pattern, though, is that constitutional amendment elections draw small crowds of mostly agreeable voters. In 2009, just over 1 million Texans approved 11 amendments. In 2007, about the same number of voters okayed each of the 16 amendments before them.You see how this goes.This year’s line-up is not exactly front-page news; most of the scant attention the election has attracted comes from a proposal to ease restrictions on borrowing against home equity.Here’s a decidedly non-scientific way to test voters’ interest: Have you heard people talking about it? At this time a year ago, did you hear people talking about the presidential election?Early voting begins Monday. Election Day is Nov. 7. There are seven proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution that would change state law for sports raffles, savings contests run by financial institutions, the tenure of state appointees who haven’t been replaced and so on. Here’s a list, along with an analysis or two done by the state.It’s an election where each vote is fractionally more important than normal: With fewer voters showing up, each vote counts for more. And changes to the constitution are more permanent — most of the time — than the changes in officeholders that attract more voters to most other elections.Texans, like voters in most places, have proved they’re more interested in deciding which people will govern than on the sometimes-narrow policies presented in these off-year elections.You can’t blame the low turnouts for elections like this one on partisan redistricting, though ballot access laws that arguably make it more difficult to vote certainly don’t help.You can blame the legislators who schedule these elections, often on dates when low turnout is all but assured — when contests that might get the kind of attention and debate that attracts widespread interest, and with it, citizens who want to register their views.You can always blame voters, since turnout is a measure of how many people came to the polls to register their opinions. But they’re capable of getting interested. It’s been a long time now, but the Texas Lottery was approved in a constitutional amendment election that drew almost 2.1 million voters — at a time when there were only 7.8 million registered voters in the state. More recently, Texas voters approved a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in 2005 (a provision later voided by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling). The turnout for that 2005 vote topped 2.2 million.Civic engagement is, after all, about engagement. Boring or narrow issues don’t attract voters. But if you interest them, they will come.
