  • MLB free-agent rumors: Nationals say only Strasburg or Rendon can return

    first_imgEven without Gomes’ deal, they’re more than halfway toward the $208 million CBT threshold when also factoring in minor league salaries and player benefits. Washington exceeded the $206 million 2019 threshold by $75,844, according to Baseball Prospectus.Strasburg and Rendon are in line for huge contracts this offseason after leading the Nats to the franchise’s first World Series title.Strasburg, 31, opted out of the final four years of a seven-year, $175 million contract in November. The Yankees are among the teams to have met with Strasburg and agent Scott Boras since then. Rendon, 29 and also a Boras client, made $18.8 million in 2019, per Baseball Prospectus. The Dodgers and Rangers are rumored to be among the most interested outside suitors. Nationals ownership negotiated with its star free agents through the media Thursday.Managing principal owner Mark Lerner told NBC Sports Washington’s Donald Dell that the club has the money to bring back right-hander Stephen Strasburg or third baseman Anthony Rendon, but not both. “We really can only afford to have one of those two guys,” Lerner told Dell. “They’re huge numbers. We already have a really large payroll to begin with.”SN’s FA PREDICTIONS: Where Strasburg, Rendon may landAccording to NBC Sports Washington, Lerner later put the onus on Strasburg and Rendon to work with ownership on new deals.”We can give them a great offer — which we’ve done to both of those players. They’re great people. We’d be delighted if they stay. But it’s not up to us, it’s up to them. That’s why they call it free agency,” Lerner was quoted as saying.FAGAN: Yankees smartly aggressive with pursuit of Strasburg, ColeThe world champion Nats have about $91.5 million committed to five players for the 2020 season per Competitive Balance Tax calculations, per Baseball Prospectus. Those commitments do not include a reported two-year, $10 million contract for free-agent catcher Yan Gomes.last_img read more

  • Federal judge overturns Iowa’s 2012 ‘ag gag’ law

    first_imgDES MOINES — A federal court has ruled Iowa’s so-called “ag gag” law is unconstitutional.The law set up a penalty for people who get a job on a farm or in a livestock confinement in order to go undercover to release details of the operation or free the animals. Rita Bettis Austen of the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa says the law violated First Amendment rights.“An especially grievous harm to our democracy occurs when the government uses the power of the criminal laws to target unpopular speech, to protect those with power,” she says, “and that’s exactly what this law was always about.”Randy Evans, executive director of the Iowa Freedom of Information Council, says the court mentioned the value of undercover investigations.“To allow and to prevent the state of Iowa from making a criminal action for entities that publish the truth,” he says, “that shine the spotlight on activities that are of deep interest to the citizens of the state of Iowa.”Matthew Liebman, an attorney for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, says the law stifled investigations his clients might have conducted.“They weren’t willing to put their investigators at risk of going to prison,” he says, “so now that this law is no longer an obstacle, I think we could expect to start seeing undercover investigations in Iowa.”Governor Terry Branstad signed the law in 2012, saying it’s wrong for people to try to disrupt farming operations. Others who supported the law say people who enter livestock barns under false pretenses can expose the animals to diseases. Federal courts have struck down laws in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming that were — like Iowa’s law — intended to discourage groups like PETA from videotaping inside livestock confinements.last_img read more

  • Police to use body cameras during traffic stops, arrests

    first_imgAs part of the reformation process for a more modernised and efficient Guyana Police Force, 40 ranks from within D Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) were trained to use Portable Video Recording kits or ‘body cameras’.The purpose of the training was to allow ranks to be able to operate the equipment to capture digital audio and video evidence for criminal, civil and traffic related offences, which will also assist ranks with recalling facts and other details captured by the equipment that would accurately relate a chain of events when writing reports, Police headquarters said in a statement.The ranks will be required to wear the body cameras during their shift at all times and should activate it when it is absolutely necessary in situations such as traffic stops, priority responses, vehicle pursuits, arrest situations, vehicle searches, physical confrontations and crimes in progress etc.The training was conducted at the Leonora Police Station Recreational Hall on March 27, 2019, by Constable 24148 Callace Isaacs and Constable 24606 Leon Joseph of the Information Technology Department of the Guyana Police Force.last_img read more

Beckham is a true football icon of his generation.”Beckham won the Champions League with United in 1999 and later played for Los Angeles Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Madrid.He hung up his boots in 2013 and earlier this year was awarded an MLS franchise in Miami.“During my career I always gave 100 percent and tried to uphold the values of teamwork and fair play and I am proud to join the illustrious list of players who have previously won this award,” said Beckham, who is now involved in charity work with UNICEF, the UN Children’s Fund.“Many of the unforgettable moments I had on the pitch came in the UEFA Champions League such as that magic night in Barcelona in 1999 when we beat Bayern Munich in such dramatic fashion.”Last year’s UEFA President’s Award was given to former Italy star Francesco Totti.
