TweetPinShare0 Shares Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios said Olympic swimming legend Dawn Fraser was a “blatant racist,” after she criticized him for giving up at Wimbledon where he lost a match in listless fashion.Frasier said should “go back to where their parents came from” if they did not set a better example to Australian youth. Kyrgios’ father is Greek while his mother is Malaysian.Although only 20 and showing potential for brilliance, Kyrios has earned the reputation of being tennis’ new bad boy with what critics call a bad temper and outlandish behavior.The former champion swimmer won four gold medals in the 1956, 1960 and 1964 Olympics. After initially standing by her comments and denying they were racist, she later issued an “unreserved apology for any comments… which may have caused offence to my fellow Australians including Nick and his family,” Reuters reported.Kyrgios was the subject of a barrage of criticism back home for his on-court antics when he was beaten by Richard Gasquet in the fourth round of the Wimbledon championships on July 6.The 20-year-old was accused of giving up, or “tanking”, in one game, received a warning and a fine for an audible obscenity and conducted a running debate with the umpire throughout the match.After the match Fraser, 77, said, “It’s absolutely disgusting. I am so shocked to think that he went out there to play and he tanked, he did all that tanking, that’s terrible.”“They should be setting a better example for the younger generation of this country, a great country of ours. If they don’t like it, go back to where their fathers or their parents came from. We don’t need them here in this country if they act like that.”Kyrgios responded by linking to a video of Fraser’s comment on his Facebook page. “Throwing a racket, brat. Debating the rules, disrespectful. Frustrated when competing, spoilt. Showing emotion, arrogant.” “Blatant racist, Australian legend.”“Australians have a rich sporting heritage made up of individuals from a variety of different countries of origin,” she said later.“My intended message, which was not delivered as articulately as it could have been, was on a purely sporting level rather than meant as an attack on Nick’s ethnicity.“Nick’s representing Australia and I want to see him representing Australian tennis in the best possible light,” she added.Kyrgios’ defeat came after Bernard Tomic, who was born in Germany but moved to Australia with his Yugoslavian-born parents when he was three, was dumped from Australia’s Davis Cup team for launching a tirade at Tennis Australia officials after he lost at Wimbledon too.
Share via Email Share on Twitter Quick guide Greg Wood’s racing tips: Wednesday 23 May The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian’s sport coverage Hazapour hails from the same family as the 2016 Derby winner Harzand also trained by Weld, who is currently without stable jockey Pat Smullen, who has taken time off for health reasons.Dettori’s agent, Ray Cochrane, said: “I can confirm Frankie rides Mr Weld’s horse in the Derby. It’s a great ride to get. He looked really impressive in winning the Derrinstown, which is always the best trial in Ireland. He looks an exciting horse.”Dettori has won the Derby twice, on Authorized in 2007 and Golden Horn in 2015. He was quoted in the press two days ago that he was available for a Derby ride. Gosden can challenge O’Brien in trainers’ battleAidan O’Brien is, inevitably, the strong favourite to retain the UK trainer’s title, which he won for the sixth time last season while also setting a new record for Group or Grade One wins in a calendar year. O’Brien’s overall dominance, though, has somewhat overshadowed John Gosden’s rise to unchallenged pre-eminence among domestic stables, and the hot novice stakes event which opens the card at Yarmouth on Wednesday offers another reminder that in Britain at least, all the power seems to be coalescing in Gosden’s Newmarket yard.Gosden, who was bidding on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin operation, was the underbidder when a Scat Daddy juvenile out of the mare Madera Dancer was knocked down for 900,000gns at Tattersalls’ Craven Breeze-Up sale in April. Stephen Hillen, the bloodstock agent who saw him off with the winning bid, said afterwards that he had made the purchase “for a client who wishes to stay anonymous,” adding that “he will be staying in the UK”.Two months later, and with the name Legends Of War, the colt in question makes his racecourse debut today in the colours of Qatar Racing – and trained by John Gosden, who is also responsible for Qatar Racing’s Roaring Lion, the second-favourite for the Derby. … we have a small favour to ask.

Hazapour’s impressive success that day was secured under Declan McDonogh, but Weld has booked Dettori, whose retained trainer John Gosden has a Derby contender in Roaring Lion, owned by Qatar Racing Ltd who will call on the services of their main rider Oisin Murphy.

If it can be maintained, the sheer scale of his operation means that he could yet mount a serious challenge to O’Brien in this year’s title race, with a mix of quality and huge quantity threatening to overwhelm his rival’s prize-money haul from a relative handful of top events.Most of the big Newmarket yards have a runner in the race at Yarmouth and the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot could well be the next step for the winner. Legends Of War is the early favourite, but far from the only runner with an impressive pedigree or price tag. Roger Varian’s San Donato (2.20), who cost £500,000 as a yearling, qualifies on both counts, though this is really a race to watch with an eye to the future.Call Out Loud (4.25) could get an easy time of it on the lead in the seven-furlong handicap later on the card, while Tanasoq (4.05) and Star Cracker look like the pick of the prices as Flat racing returns to Ayr.Birds Of Prey (7.25) finished strongly on his first outing for Paul Nicholls after being bought from John Oxx’s stable in Ireland and can improve the trainer’s excellent record with his daughter Megan in the saddle when he runs at Kempton this evening. Sister Sibyl (3.15) should also go well on the jumps card at Warwick. Topics Share on LinkedIn Was this helpful? Read more Thank you for your feedback. Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content

The emergency kits will support a Government request to increase the supply of essential medicines that the medical teams are bringing to the temporary settlement of the displaced population, WHO Country Representative Soe Nyunt-U said.Thirty-four villages have been affected by the fighting, with more than 7,050 families displaced. Although relief goods, compact food, chlorine granules, vaccines and medicines have been provided to the affected areas, there is a serious lack of medicines and medical supplies such as instruments for treating trauma.“WHO will support the Government’s efforts to ensure access and availability of health services to the displaced population,” said Hendrik Bekedam, Director, Division of Health Sector Development of WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific. A WHO regional and country office team visited Davao City in Mindanao to meet with the Secretary of Health of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, Tahir Sulaik, to discuss the situation and plan further support for the emergency.Provincial health officers present at the meetings with WHO reported on the difficulties of reaching communities affected by the conflict. 19 September 2007The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) is providing emergency medicines and supplies people displaced by the escalation of fighting between the Philippines army and the Moro National Liberation Front in the southern island of Mindanao.
LONGUEUIL, Que. – Airplane landing gear maker Heroux-Devtek says its first-quarter net income rose 8.4 per cent to $6.3 million, helped by higher deliveries to commercial aircraft and business jet markets and stronger sales of its industrial products.The earnings amount to 20 cents per dilluted share compared with 19 cents on a profit of $5.8 million in the same quarter last year, the Montreal-area company said Thursday.Consolidated sales reached $99.2 million, up eight per cent from $91.9 million a year earlier.Results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 included start-up costs of $502,000 related to the company’s new facility in Mexico.“Military sales also increased, reflecting our extensive diversification with regards to product and service offering as well as aircraft programs,” said chief executive Gilles Labbe in a news release.The company is also keeping an eye on possible acquisitions.“Our balanced portfolio between commercial and military activity, combined with our internal strengths and extensive know-how, gives Heroux-Devtek the ability to capture any new business opportunity that may arise,” he said.“We are looking forward to further enhance our presence in the landing gear market, as we continue to build Heroux-Devtek into a world-class organization.”Heroux-Devtek Inc.

One side says they are too complex and lengthy, while the other says they don’t protect fragile ecosystems and leave out important considerations.During the federal election, Trudeau spoke about the need to reform a process that he said had lost the trust of Canadians. That promise was repeated in the throne speech.The first Liberal budget committed $16.5 million over three years to improve consultations already ongoing and support First Nations involvement.The new review promises extensive opportunities for pubic input, as well as direct consultation with interested organizations. Meetings are to be held in areas where projects have been through an environmental assessment.The panel will be led by Johanne Gélinas, a former federal commissioner of environment and sustainable development.Retired Teck Resources vice-president Doug Horswill and environmental and aboriginal lawyers Rod Northey and Renee Pelletier round it out.The panel is expressly instructed to engage with First Nations individuals and groups. It is also instructed to work together with other reviews being done by Fisheries and Oceans, Natural Resources and Transport Canada.The panel is to begin next month and finish by the end of January.Environmental groups welcomed Monday’s announcement.“This review marks the beginning of a rare opportunity to build a next-generation environmental assessment law for Canada,” said a statement from Jessica Clogg of the West Coast Environmental Law Association. “With widespread conflict over projects like oil pipelines and dams, the stakes have never been higher.”Stephen Hazell of Nature Canada said in a release he was pleased by the panel’s makeup and terms of reference.“We look forward to working with the panel in the coming weeks to develop proposals for the next generation of laws to ensure that development is sustainable and nature is conserved.”— By Bob Weber in Edmonton.

Yesterday Google formerly revealed the Google Glasses project in a future-looking promotional video that had us all looking forward to wearing glasses full of tech linked to its services. We also got a new name for this tech project: Project Glass.The video painted a very rosy picture of wearing Project Glass specs to help us through our day. They look so useful due to always being connected to the web, and offering instant access to Google Maps navigation, the weather, reminders from your calendar, what time it is, your text messages, and of course video chat.The reality of Project Glass is ultimately going to be very different, though. Google is, after all, a company that relies on adverts for most of its revenue. When was the last time you used a Google service that didn’t have adverts injected into it?Ultimately, Google will include adverts from Adwords with Project Glass, and the remixed video above gives us a more realistic idea of what we can expect to see (quite literally) every time we put our glasses on. Of course, they may not be that intrusive, but then neither were the YouTube adverts that popped up when the service first introduced them. Now they appear all the time, multiple times, and even interrupt the video depending on what you choose to watch. Surely Project Glass will face a similar fate?Project Glass is an exciting combination of hardware tech and proven, established services. But we can’t forget which company is spearheading the project, and that their ultimate aim is to make money from everything they do. Advertising will be a major part of Project Glass, we guarantee it.

LAS VEGAS — Rob Ledbetter’s battlefield instincts kicked in quickly as bullets rained overhead.The 42-year-old U.S. Army veteran who served as a sniper in Iraq immediately began tending to the wounded, one of several heroes to emerge from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Amid the massacre in Las Vegas, which left 59 people dead and more than 500 injured, there were acts of compassion and countless heroics that officials say saved many lives.There was a man one survivor knows only as Zach who herded people to a safe place. There was a registered nurse from Tennessee who died shielding his wife.Like many people in the crowd of some 22,000 country music fans Sunday night, Ledbetter heard the pop-pop-popping noise and figured it was fireworks. Then he saw people dropping to the ground. When more booms echoed in the night air, he recognized the sound of automatic weapons fire.The gunman, identified as Stephen Craig Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant from Mesquite, Nevada, created his own sniper’s perch inside the 32nd floor room at the Mandalay Bay casino hotel, across from the concert grounds. He appeared to fire unhindered for more than 10 minutes, according to radio traffic, and then killed himself before officers stormed in and found 23 firearms.“The echo, it sounded like it was coming from everywhere and you didn’t know which way to run,” said Ledbetter, who was at the concert with seven people including his brother, who was shot and injured, and his wife. They found cover in a VIP area of the concert. Once out of harm’s way, he turned to injured strangers.
Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor is expecting a tough fixture list in December and has urged his teammates to “put the foot to the floor”.Celtic have five more Scottish Premiership games before the end of the year and McGregor says they must battle through the fixture schedule if they want to remain top spot in the new year.“The fixtures have been pretty grueling and the boys have been playing games every couple of days at high intensity,” McGregor told Sky Sports.“Another positive is we went through on Thursday night [in the Europa League]. We have to pick ourselves up again and Easter Road is a tough place to go.Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“We have had tough games against them as well there so we need to be fully ready for that. We need to recover and be flying for Sunday.“November and December are a big couple of months in the fixtures and if you get through them and come out the other side well you are in a pretty good place.“We have the cup in the bag, we have five games left so we have to put the foot to the floor and get as many points as we can.”
Sonos ended its most recent quarter with much narrower losses than Wall Street had anticipated, with solid revenue growth across its core product categories, and some added revenue from its new cooperation with Ikea.In its fiscal third quarter, which ended on June 29, Sonos generated revenue of $260.2 million compared to $208.4 million during the same quarter a year ago. Net losses for the quarter were $14 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to losses of $27 million in fiscal Q3 of 2018.Analysts had expected losses per share of $0.23.Sonos officially rolled out its partnership with Ikea at the beginning of this month, with the furniture giant selling 2 Sonos-powered and co-branded speaker models in around 300 stores worldwide.Sonos generates revenues by selling Ikea a hardware module necessary for multi-room audio streaming. The company’s Q3 2019 earnings report listed that added revenue in an “other” product category, which grew from $5.5 million in fiscal Q3 of 2018 to $17.7 million for this past quarter.

During the quarter, wireless speakers were responsible for $104.6 million of revenue, with home theater speakers accounting for close to $89.7 million.However, Sonos clearly believes that the Ikea partnership won’t just add some incremental revenues in the form of hardware module sales. “The IKEA partnership represents an innovative way to bring the Sonos experience to new potential customers at a global scale,” wrote CEO Patrick Spence in his letter to investors.“We believe it has the potential to significantly expand our audience by bringing the Sonos experience into millions of new homes that our current portfolio does not address,” he added. “Once introduced to the simplicity of the Sonos experience, we anticipate that many customers will consider adding additional Sonos products to their homes to augment their home sound systems.”On Wednesday’s earnings call, Sonos CFO Brittany Bagley said that the company was prepared for the 10% tariffs that the Trump administration said it would impose on imports from China starting on September 1. “We are focusing on managing that impact,” she said. “We have been moving towards diversifying our supply chain outside of China.”Spence also used the earnings call to once again hint at plans to release products in new categories. “We see a lot of opportunity in a variety of markets,” Spence said, adding that the company was looking to share “something new we know customers will love” later this quarter.

ATLANTA, Georgia – Twelve Pacific rim countries sealed aTrans-Pacific Partnership deal early Monday on creating the world’s largest free trade area, delivering U.S. President Barack Obama a major policy triumph.Working around the clock for days past their deadline, haggard trade ministers announced they reached agreement on the ambitious Trans-Pacific Partnership just before dawn, capping five years of difficult talks led by the United States.The deal aims to set the rules for 21st century trade and investment and press China, not among the 12, to shape its behavior in commerce, investment and business regulation to the TPP standards.“After five years of intensive negotiations, we have come to an agreement that will create jobs, drive sustainable growth, foster inclusive development, and promote innovation across the Asia Pacific Region,” said U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman.The hard-won deal to create the world’s largest free-trade area, encompassing 40 percent of the global economy, came after five days of round-the-clock talks in an Atlanta hotel.President Obama, who made the TPP a priority of his second term, said the accord reached in Georgia “reflects America’s values and gives our workers the fair shot at success they deserve.”“When more than 95 percent of our potential customers live outside our borders, we can’t let countries like China write the rules of the global economy,” Obama said in a statement. “We should write those rules, opening new markets to American products while setting high standards for protecting workers and preserving our environment.” A dairy farmer protests the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on Sept. 29, 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario. A cow and hundreds of dairy farmers driving tractors blocked road access to Canada’s parliament to protest agricultural concessions in trade talks with other Pacific Rim countries. Michel Comte/AFP‘Trade deal for 21st century’The accord involves significant market openings from Canada, the United States and Japan for farm products from sugar and rice to cheese and beef.Japan has made major concessions to lower tariffs and reduce non-tariff barriers on food imports, long a challenging domestic political issue and a chronic sore point with major food exporters like Australia, New Zealand and the United States.The United States agreed to lower its tariffs on Japanese car parts from non-TPP locations like China and Thailand, even though that hurts the privileged position in the U.S. market that the 1994 NAFTA trade pact gave Canada and Mexico — both in the TPP deal.But more broadly, the agreement establishes mechanisms to handle disputes between foreign investors and governments; requires governments to not discriminate between their own state companies and foreign investors in major contracts; and demands countries like Vietnam, Mexico and Malaysia improve labor standards.It also addresses new issues like data trade and intellectual property that have not been covered in multilateral trade pacts of the past.Canada Trade Minister Ed Fast called the deal “truly transformational.”“The magnitude and importance of rules for 21st century issues can’t be underscored enough. … It will shape the future for many trade agreements in this 21st century,” he said.The talks went four days past deadline to resolve conflicts over Canada and Japan opening up their dairy markets to New Zealand exports, and objections from Australia, Peru and Chile to the U.S. push for longer biologic patent protections.New Zealand Trade Minister Tim Groser said his side of the talks worked to 5 a.m. Monday morning before an agreement was set.The deal is “profoundly important and beneficial to the generations of people in our respective countries,” he said.The negotiators, including from Singapore and Brunei, also part of the agreement, said everyone had given in some areas and gained in others to reach a deal.“We are satisfied with the result. We’ve defended all our country’s most sensitive issues,” said Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz.Concretely, Fast said, the deal will result in significant reductions of bureaucratic and tariff barriers to trade and investment among the 12 countries.“Red tape is consuming so much world activity, … this is a massive achievement in reducing that red tape,” he said. TPP “is going to lead to far more seamless trade.” A file photo taken on Nov. 10, 2014 shows U.S. President Barack Obama taking part in a meeting with leaders from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. Mandel Ngan/AFPRatification challengeThe accord still must be signed and ratified by the respective countries. But that could be a challenge in a number of countries.Many of the details of the deal were negotiated in deep secret, drawing persistent criticism that business interests dominated the talks and that the public interest in many countries was being thrown aside.Once made public, the details of the TPP could spur a backlash, especially in Canada, facing a national election in two weeks, and in the United States, with elections coming in one year.U.S. members of Congress have already warned that they will not ratify any deal that gives up too much in U.S. interests.Powerful U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch warned Monday that he will scour the deal “to determine whether our trade negotiators have diligently followed the law so that this trade agreement meets Congress’s criteria and increases opportunity for American businesses and workers.”Read more free trade stories here Facebook Comments Related posts:Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiators push hard for deal A look at the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which rewrites rules on trade in autos, patented drugs Ex-trade minister Anabel González: TPP, like CAFTA, will help Costa Rica in long run US lawmakers ease Obama’s path to Pacific trade deal
The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Former Arizona Cardinal Michael Floyd spoke publicly Thursday for the first time since his arrest on DUI charges in Scottsdale on Dec. 12.After being cut by the team and picked up by the New England Patriots, Floyd is looking to move on from the situation.“I understand what happened last week was last week and I’m excited about my opportunity here, being a Patriot with a great group of guys, a great group of coaches and an organization that treats people well,” Floyd said in some opening remarks with media members. “I love that organization.
