Michigan State redshirt senior quarterback Connor Cook (18) celebrates following the Spartans’ upset of the Buckeyes on Nov. 21 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Muyao Shen | Assistant Photo EditorAll good things must come to an end, which the Buckeye faithful learned painfully as the Michigan State Spartans hit a last-second field goal to end Ohio State’s 23-game winning streak.For the final home game of the season, OSU honored its winningest senior class in history (which now currently stands at 48-4), but the Spartans played spoiler and came away with a 17-14 victory in Columbus even without star redshirt senior quarterback Connor Cook.Right away, it was clear that Michigan State was playing with a chip on its shoulder as its defense smothered the Buckeyes. OSU limped to 75 yards of total offense in the first half, luckily tied with the Spartans at 7 after a fumble recovery led to a touchdown in the second quarter.The Buckeyes came into the game with the best offense in the Big Ten but barely managed more than a fourth of their normal yardage per game as they finished with a measly 132 yards and only five first downs.Momentum came at a premium throughout the cold and rainy night as both teams struggled to find a groove. OSU caught a major break when Michigan State fumbled a punt return, which led to another touchdown and a 14-7 lead heading into the fourth quarter. However, the Buckeye offense never threatened again as the Spartan rushing attack imposed its will on a beleaguered defense in the final 15 minutes of play.For the game, the Buckeyes were led by redshirt sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett, who finished with 46 yards passing and a touchdown, as well as another 44 yards on the ground.  Junior running back Ezekiel Elliott, who came into the game with Heisman Trophy aspirations, only managed 33 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, of which only two came in the second half.However, despite the multiple miscues and shortcomings of OSU, Michigan State’s fantastic performance should not be overlooked. The Spartans had a simple gameplan and stuck to it: stop the Buckeye rushing attack, impose their will through their own rushing attack and own time of possession. Michigan State finished with 203 yards rushing for game, led by redshirt sophomore running back Gerald Holmes with 65 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Redshirt junior quarterback Tyler O’Connor stepped into the spot of Cook and also performed efficiently, passing for 89 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-12 passing with another 25 yards added on the ground.With the victory, Michigan State took control of first place in the Big Ten East, and will play in the Big Ten Championship Game as long as it defeats Penn State next week. OSU, meanwhile, can still play in the Big Ten Championship Game if the Spartans get upset and the Buckeyes are able to bounce back and take care of business against archrival Michigan next week in Ann Arbor. By the numbers:108,975: The number of fans who braved some brutal weather to cheer on the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium, a new attendance record.48: The amount of wins by the senior class at OSU, the most in any four-year stretch in Buckeye history.4: The amount of losses suffered by Urban Meyer after four seasons at the helm of the Scarlet and Gray.2: Of those four losses, two have come at the hands of Mark Dantonio and the Michigan State Spartans.1: Urban Meyer finally suffered his first regular-season defeat in the Big Ten Conference after starting 30-0 as a Big Ten coach.2.93: The amount of yards OSU averaged per play on Saturday, the fewest it has since Meyer took over. 86: The total number of rushing yards the Buckeyes had against the Spartans. It is the lowest total OSU has registered inside Ohio Stadium since Oct. 1, 2011 against — Michigan State. read more

first_imgThese latest rumblings about a publisher supergroup led by Time Inc. joining together in a dramatic effort to head Apple and Amazon off at digital distribution pass is significant news. You’ve got the country’s biggest publishers—Time Inc., Hearst, Condé Nast, possibly Meredith—in a bid for solidarity to fulfill this statement copped from a leaked PowerPoint: “Whoever defines the interface wins.”That’s a reference to a digital storefront that the consortium is to build, whether through a possible expansion of Time Inc.’s Maghound subscription site, which already offers subscription bundles from many of these same publishers and then some (yes, a la Netflix), or through a separate company created from a joint investment.iTunes and Hulu business models are reportedly in the works, or at least are generating comparisons to what unnamed sources think is in the works. One makes money off of small, per-item payments, the other makes advertising revenue, which, apparently, is too old-school when we’re talking about paid digital content. So far, no one can hazard a guess at how the joint venture content will be formatted that’s any different from what you get on a Web site, on an iPhone or in a digital edition. There’s been some mention of personalization, but there is major balking at exactly how the consortium will get its content to be universally ported to devices that have proprietary formats.And let’s not forget that so far, Apple’s iPhone/Touch tablet is still a rumor, albeit a strong one, and so is its $700-$900 price tag, which is an awful pricey device for reading magazines on.Presumably (hopefully), Time Inc.’s John Squires and his colleagues have been busy working out the details on content formats, particularly if customers will be allowed to view on the variety of devices out there.One industry executive I spoke with says this is no easy task. The joint venture is reportedly targeting HP and the Apple tablets for their hardware distribution. But what about the installed base of Kindle and eReaders? Who’s going to purchase another device any time soon to read magazine content on?Also difficult is asking consumers to mix and match and otherwise “personalize” their content—unless Time Inc.’s Mine magazine experiment has revealed something we don’t know yet. Imagine the process a customer will have to go through to search and compile content from dozens of magazines? Maybe that’s as fun as crafting a mix in iTunes, but songs have longer staying power than most magazine articles.”We see things a little differently,” said the executive I spoke with. “We believe that consumers will sign up for your magazine, but there’s no way to know what device they’ll be on the day you publish your issue. That’s the publisher’s problem—not the consumers problem.”Rather, he said, publishers should be thinking about seamless access regardless of device. “It’s an important difference between solutions that require active ‘management’ and solutions that find the consumer,” he said.I’m all for reaching the customer when and where they are, but is it possible to over-saturate a market with access points, especially ones that require effort to manage?last_img read more

first_imgBALTIMORE (AP) — Sipping a tea latte in the window of a Baltimore mall, former Mayor Sheila Dixon, whose long political career was derailed by a fraud conviction, waved at a seemingly never-ending stream of admirers.“You look so beautiful!” one passer-by mouthed, tracing a heart shape on the glass. Another woman and her sheepish teenage daughter gingerly approached Dixon as she walked out of the coffee shop.This photo Oct. 19, 2016 photo shows former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon in Baltimore. Born and bred in West Baltimore with no family ties to City Hall, Dixon moved up the political ladder on her own, from City Council member to Council president, to the first woman to hold the highest office in the city. She’s still greeted with hugs, praise and pleas to continue her latest election bid, despite losing the Democratic primary in April to State Sen. Catherine Pugh, who once served one council with Dixon. (AP Photo/Juliet Linderman)“Ms. Dixon?” the woman said, “I have one question for you. Can I have a hug?”It’s not the reaction one might expect a disgraced ex-politician ousted for stealing gift cards meant for poor children. But in Baltimore, Dixon — even five years after being booted from office — is still The Mayor.Born and bred in West Baltimore with no family ties to City Hall, she moved up the political ladder on her own, from City Council member to Council president, to the first woman to hold the highest office in the city. She’s still greeted with hugs, praise and pleas to continue her latest election bid for mayor, despite losing the Democratic primary in April to State Sen. Catherine Pugh, who once served on the council with Dixon.Pugh narrowly won the nomination and, in a city where voter registration heavily favors Democrats, faces an easy race against Republican Alan Walden.The primary, though, was characterized by mudslinging. Pugh claimed Dixon volunteers intimidated voters, and Dixon alleged that Pugh offered chicken boxes and rides to the polls in exchange for votes.On primary night, Dixon cryptically proclaimed: “I am not through yet.”Now, with less than three weeks until the general election, her intentions have become clear. Dixon has launched a write-in campaign, even though no write-in candidate has ever won an election in the city’s history, Baltimore elections chief Armstead Jones said.Why take the risk?“I feel like I need to fight until the end, because I don’t want to look back and think, ‘Shoulda, coulda, woulda,’” Dixon said.Maybe the real question is: why not?“She has a heart for people,” said Linda Alston, who gave Dixon a big hug after running into her in the mall. “She made a mistake. We all make mistakes.”As Dixon walked away she handed Alston a campaign palm card.“Don’t forget to write me in!” she said. “You know I will!” Alston shouted back at her.Dixon said she has a core group of about 12 volunteers working to promote the campaign, which consists of passing out palm cards to constituents on the street and at events, sending mailers and phone banking. Roughly 1,200 more are willing to pitch in to help spread the word, she said.Funding is tight — she’s got roughly $5,000 in the bank. But she’s determined to make sure Baltimore residents know she hasn’t gone away.Dixon said the results of the primary, in which state election officials decertified the result, inspired her to revive her campaign. After a precinct-level investigation of irregularities, the State Board of Elections found problems with about 1,600 provisional ballots and some precincts opening late, but concluded they weren’t enough to change the outcome. Dixon said she hopes to restore some faith for those who feel disenfranchised.“I’m from here. I pay taxes. I’ve been just really disheartened by what I’ve seen,” she said. “Whatever happens, if people are coming out to vote who were discouraged, if it means making history, if it means the city Board of Elections will get it right this time, it’s worth it.”Win or lose, Dixon has an order of business to take care of, and soon: to commission a portrait of herself to join the rest of the city’s previous mayors on the walls of City Hall. She didn’t have the opportunity before she resigned from office in 2010.“One way or another,” Dixon said with a smile, “I’ll be watching over them.”last_img read more

first_imgU.S. Home Flipping Drops to Five-Year Low in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Share Home flipping sales declined nationwide both quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year, hitting their lowest level since the second quarter of 2009, according to RealtyTrac’s Q3 2014 U.S. Home Flipping Report released Thursday.The number of home flipping sales, or those in which a home is purchased and sold within 12 months, represented 4 percent of all single-family home sales in the United States in the third quarter, a decline from 4.6 percent in Q2 2014 and from 5.6 percent in the third quarter of 2013, according to RealtyTrac.The average gross return on investment for flipped homes in Q3 was 36 percent, a slight increase from 35 percent in Q2 but a slight decline from 37 percent from the same quarter last year, according to RealtyTrac. The average gross profit per home flipped for investors was $75,990 in the third quarter, RealtyTrac reported.”Flipping returned to its historic norm of 4 percent in the third quarter as home price appreciation cooled in many of the hot flipping markets across the country,” said Daren Blomquist, VP of RealtyTrac. “Meanwhile, the record-high average profits per flip in the quarter demonstrate that flippers are still filling an important niche in an aging housing market with historically low levels of new homes being built. The most successful flippers are buying older, outdated homes in established neighborhoods and rehabbing them extensively to appeal to modern tastes.”The top five metropolitan areas with the most home flips were Miami (1,190), Los Angeles (1,170), Phoenix (1,147), New York (1,070), and Tampa (789), with Tampa being the only one of those five that saw a year-over-year increase in home flips in Q3, according to RealtyTrac. The top five metros that saw the highest year-over-year increase in home flips were Louisville, Kentucky (117 percent), Kansas City (66 percent), Boston (40 percent), New Orleans (38 percent), and Indianapolis (35 percent).Metro areas with the highest return on investment for home flips in Q3 were Baltimore (88 percent), Pittsburgh (79 percent), Detroit (61 percent), Richmond, Virginia (60 percent), and Mobile, Alabama (59 percent), according to RealtyTrac.San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, and San Diego posted the highest average gross profit among metros per home flip, all with more than $125,000 per home flip.”The markets with an increase in flipping tend to be those with older, distressed inventory still available that flippers can often buy at a discount and add value to,” Blomquist said. “Those discounted distressed properties have become harder to find, but a recent jump in scheduled foreclosure auctions could provide more fodder for flippers in the next three to six months.”The national average amount of time it took to complete a home flip in the third quarter was 185 days, a slight decrease from 187 days in Q2 but an increase from 133 days from the third quarter of 2013, RealtyTrac reported.center_img November 19, 2014 488 Views Home Flipping Investment Investors RealtyTrac 2014-11-19 Seth Welbornlast_img read more

The challenge, especially when it comes to the most talented players waived, is believing their red flags can be mitigated if not outright fixed.Related LinksNew Cardinal D.J. Swearinger learns lessons with release from RedskinsArizona Cardinals roster reset after the 2018 seasonDating back to the end of last season, the Cardinals have picked up a number of players from the waiver wire and off the street to begin the roster refurbishing before first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury and Keim hit the draft and free agency markets.Here is who they’ve picked up since the last few weeks of 2018 so far.Safety D.J. Swearinger (Dec. 25, 2018)(AP Photo/Bill Kostroun, File)Arguably the most impactful player on this list, Swearinger had enough juice in 2018 to earn some Pro Bowl hype with Washington. So one might wonder why he landed on the waiver wire at all.The safety was critical of his defensive coordinator’s play-calling following a loss to the Tennessee Titans, and his heated postgame comments to reporters didn’t sit well with his team. Washington released him, and Arizona pulled the trigger on bringing back a familiar face who played for the Cardinals in part of 2015 and all of 2016. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo You thought Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was kidding when he expressed excitement over having — not the No. 1 overall draft pick — the top waiver-wire claim spot.He wasn’t.The NFL Draft and free agency are months away, but Arizona has already been plugging holes with hopes of turning around a franchise fresh off a 3-13 season.“Generally when I’ve looked back to previous seasons, the team who has had the number one claim pick has generally claimed … I think it was five to seven players in final cuts who have stuck with their team and certainly helped out in one way or another,” Keim told Doug & Wolf on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.

Miczek)At a very late point in the 2018 season, Alford had allowed more yards (737) than any other cornerback in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. He lost his job to rookie Isaiah Oliver and was released by Atlanta to clear nearly $8 million in cap space.The 2013 second-round pick had his moments in six years with the Falcons, a pick-six of Tom Brady in Super Bowl LI among them.Arizona signed him to a three-year deal that could reach up to $24 million, and Keim said Alford is one of the more talented cornerbacks opposite Patrick Peterson the Cardinals have had in some time. Keim also divulged on Doug & Wolf during Newsmakers Week that Alford’s production dropped off after a Sept. 30 game against the Cincinnati Bengals that included a high-ankle sprain — doctors told him not to play on the injury.center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Alford has 10 career interceptions over 88 games and is expected to play with physicality as Arizona goes to more press coverage under defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.Tight end Charles Clay (Feb. 20)(AP Photo/Nick Wass)Waived due to his large cap hit on the Buffalo Bills, the Cardinals picked up a starting-caliber pass-catcher who could complement or even replace veteran tight end Jermaine Gresham.Clay’s production took a hit last year. He appeared in 13 games but caught just 21 passes for 184 yards without no scores. In his first seven seasons, he never recorded fewer than 212 yards and two touchdowns and from 2013-17 posted at least 528 receiving yards per year.At tight end, Arizona could lose Ricky Seals-Jones, their top pass-catching TE. They could also consider releasing Gresham, who this past year was limited coming off an Achilles injury suffered in 2017.Gresham is owed $8.2 million next season and $8.8 million in 2020.Outside linebacker Brooks Reed (Feb. 9)(AP Photo/Chris Szagola)The Tucson native and former Arizona Wildcat returns to his home state after spending 2011-14 with the Houston Texans and 2015-18 with the Falcons. Signed to a one-year deal, Reed should slot in nicely as an outside linebacker who is familiar with Joseph, who was the Texans’ defensive backs coach from 2011-13.Reed recorded 24 tackles with 1.0 sack and a forced fumble last season. He is likely a third outside linebacker behind Chandler Jones.The Cardinals face losing pass-rusher Markus Golden in free agency after his relatively quiet season coming off ACL surgery. They could fill the void in the draft, where Ohio State’s Nick Bosa and Kentucky’s Josh Allen are viewed as top-five prospects.Linebacker Tanner Vallejo (Feb. 5)(AP Photo/Adrian Kraus)The sixth-round pick by the Buffalo Bills in 2017 has 28 games of NFL experience, mostly as a special teams player. He did, however, record 20 tackles as a linebacker for the Cleveland Browns last season. He added seven special teams tackles with two forced fumbles.An undersized inside linebacker, Vallejo could provide depth behind returning linebacker Josh Bynes.The Cardinals have more holes to fill if they don’t opt to re-sign linebacker Deone Bucannon as well.WR Pharoh Cooper (Dec. 19, 2018)(AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack)The 2016 fourth-round pick was a Pro Bowler for his return abilities in 2017 and is a depth option as a receiver. He has 25 receptions for 190 yards over 33 games with the Los Angeles Rams, who cut him late in the 2018 season after he missed a good deal of the year with injury.

first_imgTurkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci was meeting on Tuesday with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in the north, the outcome of which is expected to determine the outcome of the talks.Akinci and Cavusoglu are expected to make statements in the afternoon.President Nicos Anastasiades is ready to attend the scheduled leaders meeting on Thursday, the government spokesman said on Monday and expressed the hope that Akinci would also take part.But it was clear from statements coming out of the north that Akinci was not ready to commit and likely not until he has met Cavusoglu who arrived on Monday night.Last Thursday’s leaders’ meeting left the talks up in the air after a vote the previous week by parliament that would see the anniversary of the 1950 Enosis – union with Greece – referendum commemorated in schools, brought an abrupt end to the proceedings.Akinci wanted Anastasiades to publicly disavow the vote, tabled by far-right Elam, and have it annulled. The president conceded on Saturday he believed it was a wrong move but said he could not compel an independent legislature to reverse it. He also reiterated that the Turkish Cypriot side was overreacting.More laterYou May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.

first_imgLong queues formed at petrol stations in the north on Wednesday evening before an increase in petrol prices which came into force at midnight.People were attempting to fill their vehicles before the price hike which is said to bring prices to an unprecedented height. Some were reportedly filling containers and plastic bottles as well as their cars.To cope with the run, some petrol stations reduced the number of pumps which were working or set a price ceiling of 50 Turkish lira, the equivalent of €6.74, per person.The press and social media on Thursday strongly condemned the price hike, which aggravates the lives of people who are already suffering because of the slide of the Turkish lira.Daily Havadis wrote that the public revolted and noted that strong comments criticising the government were made on social media such as “they tore out our souls” and “enough is enough”.According to the paper, the price of 98-octane gasoline was raised from 5.16 to 6.01 Turkish lira per litre (from €0.71 to €0.80), and for 95-octane from 4.97 to 5.81. Diesel prices went up by a whole lira, from 4.76 to 5.76 and kerosene from 4.65 to 5.59 lira.  The prices in the north, even with the hikes, are far below those in the government-controlled areas where lowest prices on Thursday for petrol hovered around the €1.20 and above mark.While Greek Cypriots continue to cross to the north in droves to take advantage of the slide in the Turkish lira, the full force of the ongoing crisis is biting ever deeper into the pockets of Turkish Cypriots causing them to fear for the future.Just two days ago it was reported that for Greek Cypriots, prices of products sold in the north are now almost 50 per cent lower than in the government-controlled areas according to a survey by the Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce.You May LikeFresh EditsWhat’s Life Without Some Cat HumorFresh EditsUndoFood PreventThis Is What May Happen When You Eat Oatmeal DailyFood PreventUndoApartments | Search AdsCheap New Apartments in California Are Turning HeadsApartments | Search AdsUndo Cypriot ambassadors gather in Nicosia for annual briefingUndoNew equipment for Paphos lifeguards but ‘proper’ towers neededUndoRussian opposition leader Navalny hospitalised for allergic reactionUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
