Wimmers could return as soon as this weekend

“He’s progressing day to day and getting better,” pitching coach Eric Parker said. “We’ll keep evaluating, especially in the middle of the week, and see where he’s at.”To this point, Wimmers — a Pitcher of the Year quarterfinalist — has only been lifting, rehabbing and throwing on flat ground. Tuesday marked his first bullpen session since the injury.Wimmers himself hopes he will be ready to return to game action as soon as this weekend.“I’m trying to get back for this weekend,” Wimmers said, “trying to get back for Saturday or Sunday.”The Buckeyes head to Iowa City, Iowa, Thursday to take on the Hawkeyes in a critical three-game series. However, the coaching staff isn’t as optimistic as Wimmers that he’ll be ready to go this weekend.To ask him to pitch this weekend “would be a lot to ask of anyone,” Parker said.Coach Bob Todd went even further, saying that he won’t know if Wimmers will travel with the team until they leave on Thursday.“He’s obviously got a bright future and we’re not going to do anything to jeopardize that,” Todd said.Wimmers acknowledged that he needs to recover fully before he can take the mound for the Buckeyes and that the coaching staff will ensure that.“I don’t think anybody would let me go out there if I was just 90 percent. I have to be 110 percent in order to go back out there,” Wimmers said.So far this season, Wimmers has been dominant, posting a 9-0 record with a 1.61 ERA.With just six conference games remaining, the Buckeyes could use their ace as they are just one game out of first place in the standings. Wimmers is all too aware of the team’s situation.“It’s killing me,” Wimmers said about not being able to pitch. “With the conference as close as it is, you just want to be out there helping your team as much as possible.” Ohio State pitcher Alex Wimmers threw off a mound Tuesday for the first time in nearly three weeks. The Buckeye ace has been sidelined since pulling his left hamstring during a pregame stretch at Michigan April 30. read more

Mens Volleyball No 11 Ohio State hopes to regain momentum against George

Credit: Ris Twigg | Former Assistant Photo EditorThe No. 11 Ohio State men’s volleyball team hopes to end its two-match skid this weekend when it takes on George Mason (3-1) and Erskine (0-4) at St. John Arena.The Buckeyes return to Columbus following tough road losses against then-No. 5 BYU and then-No.11 Stanford.Ohio State played close matches, with each of those seven sets won by five points or fewer.Head coach Pete Hanson said that looking at these matches as only losses is missing the point.“Yeah, two losses, but two losses in January against two teams that are legitimately top 10 teams are not anything to panic about,” Hanson said. “We played them close, we played in hostile environments and we’ve got young guys.”Redshirt senior middle blocker Blake Leeson is still adapting to his leadership role among the young middle blockers, this being the first year he’s the oldest in the position.“I feel more responsibility in terms of making sure all the guys are on the same page and living out the set of expectations that the guys before me did,” Leeson said. “I try to provide that support, letting them know it’s a long season and one or two games isn’t going to dictate this whole season.”On Friday, the Buckeyes will face a George Mason team coming off a four-set loss to No. 3 UC Irvine.The Patriots are led by junior opposite hitter Hayden Wagner, who leads the team with 63 kills and 4.50 kills per set. Wagner brings the distinction of Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Offensive Player of the Week into the matchup against the Buckeyes.On Saturday, the Buckeyes will take on Erskine, who’s still searching for its first win this season through four matches.If Ohio State wants to get back in the win column this weekend, they’ll have to do so with a different starting lineup.Junior outside hitter Reese Devilbiss is expected to sit out this weekend due to a concussion sustained during practice this week. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by sophomore outside hitter Kyle Skinner.Skinner, who replaced Devilbiss in the third set of the match against Stanford, said he’s ready to step up whenever his team needs him.“Whenever I get in, it’s an opportunity for me to perform and show the coaches what I can do,” Skinner said. “Being on the court a lot more this weekend will give me a chance to show not only that I can come in and make a difference, but that I can stay in the game and make a difference throughout the entire match.”Ohio State takes on George Mason at 7 p.m. on Friday and Erskine at 7 p.m. on Saturday. read more

From the seventh division to the Bundesliga the story of Weydandt

Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“This is what makes football so special. He was still kicking about in the local amateur leagues just a few years ago and I think this was only his second or third time on the ball, and he takes his chance so coolly.”“He was so nervous, he made such a mess as he was getting changed,” revealed Heldt.“Although I would have expected more from his celebrations,” continued Heldt and promised, “we’re going to give him a professional contract now”.76′ TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR FÜR #H96! ???

All eyes on Stamford Bridge as Premier League returns

No your ATT phone doesnt have 5G yet

Roberto Machado Noa 5G, the next generation of wireless technology, is going to be a big deal when it starts hitting phones next year. And phone carrier companies are getting excited about it — maybe too excited.AT&T has already reportedly rolled out “5G E” to some phones (including the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, LG V30 or LG V40). Select phones in specific regions will connect to this new network and show “5G E” in the top corner of the screen instead of the usual “LTE” indicator. Even more phones are expected to get 5G E later on.The only thing is that 5G E isn’t actually 5G. AT&T’s 5G Evolution technology is really just advanced 4G LTE with some confusing marketing language. It’s supposed to set the foundation, so AT&T can eventually roll out 5G, but it’s still 4G technology.

These are all controls that users of discrete graphics from Nvidia and AMD are used to, but which Intel never really had a reason to provide.I tried it on a few systems and didn’t see any real-time (or even delayed) affects on the previews, but it was an earlier version and it’s possible the screens weren’t good enough to reflect any subtle changes. But I was hoping for a big red “disable iGPU” button, anyway.IGCC will work on systems with sixth-generation Core chips (Skylake) or newer, and the old control panel will remain for a while — the IGCC will be available through the Microsoft Store until then (it’s free). While Intel may eventually release versions for MacOS and Linux, for now it’s Windows 10 only.The company also teased the release of its ninth-generation H-series processors — the performance-class mobile CPUs — indicating that we should see them (presumably in products) before the end of June.Intel’s presentation included a photo of the Microsoft Surface Studio as an example of its target user for the ninth-gen mobile H-series processors (desktop all-in-ones use mobile parts as a way to keep heat at bay) and while it might have only been illustrative, we’re hoping it means that the Studio will finally get the processor upgrade it deserves. When the newest model launched in the fall of 2018, its bump to only a quad-core seventh-gen i7 was disappointing.

Texas Will Rescind Its List Of Possible Noncitizen Voters Ending Its Botched

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneVoters lined up at the Austin Community College Highland Campus in Austin for the first day of early voting on Oct. 24, 2016.Three months after first questioning the citizenship status of almost 100,000 registered voters, the Texas secretary of state has agreed to end a review of the voter rolls for supposed noncitizens that was flawed from the start.The deal was announced Friday as part of an agreement to settle three legal challenges brought by more than a dozen naturalized citizens and voting rights groups against the state. The groups alleged that the voter citizenship review, which was launched in late January, was unconstitutional and violated federal protections for voters of color.Secretary of State David Whitley — who has yet to be confirmed by the Texas Senate amid the fallout over the review — agreed to scrap the lists of registered voters his office had sent to county voter registrars for examination. Whitley’s office will instruct local officials to take no further action on the names of people it had classified as “possible non-U.S citizens,” and county officials will be charged with notifying voters who received letters demanding they prove their citizenship that their registrations are safe.The state is also on the hook for $450,000 in costs and attorney fees for the plaintiffs’ lawyers.The agreement must still be approved by the federal judge overseeing the case, and the state will have five days after the judge dismisses the plaintiffs’ legal claims to officially rescind the list. But the settlement amounts to a profound defeat for the state leaders who had defended the review even though it had jeopardized the voting rights of tens of thousands of naturalized citizens.“Today’s agreement accomplishes our office’s goal of maintaining an accurate list of qualified registered voters while eliminating the impact of any list maintenance activity on naturalized U.S. citizens,” Whitley said in a statement Friday. “I will continue to work with all stakeholders in the election community to ensure this process is conducted in a manner that holds my office accountable and protects the voting rights of eligible Texans.”The original review had been mired in controversy since day one, largely because of the faulty methodology the state used to compile the list and the fanfare with which it was announced.Top Republican leaders, including Gov. Greg Abbott and President Donald Trump, took to Twitter to falsely tout the list as proof of illegal registrations and voting in Texas. In reality, the secretary of state’s office matched the voter rolls with data it requested from the Texas Department of Public Safety for individuals who at some point in the last few years told the department they were not citizens when they obtained a driver’s license or ID card. But the review did not account for people who could’ve become naturalized citizens since then and weren’t required to update DPS.The settlement does not prohibit the secretary of state from screening the state’s massive voter registration database for possible noncitizens, but state officials agreed they would rework their methodology to only flag voters who provided DPS with documentation showing they were not citizens after they were registered to vote.It’s unclear how that will shrink the original list of voters whose citizenship was questioned. Officials agreed to provide the plaintiffs with that number as well as three more updates once the state begins compiling weekly lists to send out to county officials.Those changes are expected to address the issues at the heart of the state’s first botched attempt at reviewing the voter rolls, which unraveled within days of announcing the effort when state workers began quietly informing local election officials that thousands of the names on the original list shouldn’t have been there. A top election official in the secretary of state’s office would later acknowledge that his office had overstated the number of flagged voters by about 25,000 names because of the mistake. And local officials would quickly note they had been able to verify that hundreds of other individuals on the list were naturalized citizens.“After months of litigation, the state has finally agreed to do what we’ve demanded from the start — a complete withdrawal of the flawed and discriminatory voter purge list, bringing this failed experiment in voter suppression to an end,” said Andre Segura, legal director for the ACLU of Texas, which represented plaintiffs in the case. “The right to vote is sacrosanct, and no eligible voter should have to worry about losing that right.”In court in February, lawyers for the plaintiffs in the three lawsuits zeroed in on state officials’ own admissions that they knew naturalized citizens would be affected by the review. Despite those admissions and errors in the data, state officials continued to stand by the review as routine list maintenance and a good faith effort to maintain the integrity of the voter rolls. They also went as far as blaming individual county officials for acting too quickly to question voters on their lists, even though those local officials followed the state’s instructions for reviewing the eligibility of those voters.Under the settlement, the state agreed to provide local officials with new training materials.The plaintiffs and the state reached the settlement agreement two months after District Judge Fred Biery signaled his displeasure with the way Texas handled the review. In temporarily putting the effort on hold after three days of testimony in San Antonio, Biery chided state officials for putting “perfectly legal naturalized Americans” on a path to receiving “ham-handed and threatening” letters that demanded they prove their citizenship to avoid getting kicked off the rolls.In a scathing four-page order, Biery wrote that the letters exemplified “the power of government to strike fear and anxiety to intimidate the least powerful among us.”“No native born Americans were subjected to such treatment,” Biery said.State attorneys indicated to Biery in late March that they had proposed a deal to end the litigation. Despite early reports of an agreement, it took several weeks to iron out a deal in which the plaintiffs agreed to rescind their legal claims against the state and their requests for documents. (The plaintiffs indicated in the settlement agreement that they are not conceding that the state’s review efforts comply with federal law, leaving them room to take the state back to court if they’re troubled by subsequent reviews.)The debacle prompted a congressional inquiry as part of a larger investigation into voter suppression in various states. Congressional investigators have requested documents and communications related to the review. But the state has so far mostly denied those requests, only handing over documents that were already public.It remains unclear what the settlement means for the registered voters whose names were referred to Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has the authority to prosecute claims of voter fraud. In announcing the original review, Whitley noted his office had immediately handed over the list of names to the attorney general. Since then, Paxton’s office has offered mixed messages on whether it has begun to criminally investigate voters.On Friday, the groups and lawyers who sued the state celebrated the settlement but lamented the confusion and frustration the review effort caused..“State officials have wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars and struck fear and confusion into thousands of voters in order to pursue their voter suppression agenda,” said Beth Stevens, voting rights legal director with the Texas Civil Rights Project, which was also involved in the lawsuit. “We are glad that this particular effort was stopped in its tracks and we will remain vigilant to ensure that not one single voter loses their right to vote due to the actions of state officials.”This piece was originally published in The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. last_img read more

New DC Fashion Art Gallery Opens as the The Museum

first_imgThe Museum on opening night. (Twitter Photo)The Museum isn’t your typical art gallery. After launching on April. 8, many young D.C. residents are already showing up at this creative space.Greg Harrison, general manager, said The Museum is an attempt to influence young leaders in the world of fashion and art through his eyes.“I expected more,” said Harrison. “I’m an extremist.”Before Harrison became an owner of his own art gallery, he was heavily involved in the music industry. In 2008 he owned a “multifaceted marketing and managing company” which helped build brands for their clients involved in music, entertainment, sports management and more.As a proud native of D.C., he has worked with music artists who have taken their talents outside of the district (respectfully) while working with Wale and Northeast rapper, Fat Trel.Growing up in Southeast, D.C., Harrison saw his city rapidly changing for the better and worse, but knew in order for him to continue to see his city grow in a positive direction, it would start with working with other inspirational artists who shared his passion.Even though the fashion and art gallery carries an un-Googleable name, it is far from an actual museum. Harrison focuses on the “root” word of museum, “muse.” He wants his shop to become “a source of inspiration” for other artists to follow. “We wanted to display artwork from the old D.C. culture,” said Harrison.Thus far, The Museum has hosted an array of pop up shops, a fashion show collaboration with Reebok, a book signing with Karen Civil, author of “Be You & Live Civil,” and listening parties.Located in Northeast, D.C., The Museum is surrounded by a small market strip that serves more nutritional meals than your average fast food carryout most may run into while in D.C. “This looks like Fairfax District in L.A. to me, so to me this is going to be Fairfax,” said Harrison. “I want to have that coffee shop feel. This is a more family and more neighborhood feel…it’s like that pure culture.”Inside the art space the feel of the energy of urban culture and a modern lifestyle is everywhere. From graffiti that says, “The Museum” to an exclusive sneaker collection displayed as art to hand crafted chairs and a sofa blocked off by a gated rope, because it is not art but furniture for sale for between $2400 and $7500.Further inside the building there are canvas paintings, a station for people to curate posts on social media, figurines, sneakers, and clothing and accessories from well-known designer labels like Ceast and Desist, Billionaire Boys Club and Publish.Harrison collaborates with many brands by hosting pop up shops before selling any of the designer’s merchandise at The Museum. “When we do pop up shops that’s how we introduce new brands,” said Harrison. The Museum even has their own private label that is sold in the store, like their original Southeast hoodies, called “S.E” as well as designer fitted baseball caps.As for how the art displayed is picked, “For the most part we’ve been getting artists who’ve been organically hitting us up,” said Harrison.For more information go to themuseumdc.com.last_img read more
