Dybala, Maldini test positive for coronavirus

first_imgRome, Italy | AFP | Argentina striker Paulo Dybala said Saturday that he has become the third Juventus player to test positive for coronavirus while former AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini revealed that he and his son have also been infected.“Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you know that we have received the Covid-19 test results and that Oriana (Sabatini, his girlfriend) and I are positive,” the 26-year-old Dybala tweeted.“Fortunately, we are perfectly fine. Thank you for your messages.”Italian champions Juventus said that Dybala had been self-isolating since Wednesday.“He will continue to be monitored. He is well and is asymptomatic,” said the club in a statement.Later Saturday, the club said Maldini, now the technical director at Milan, and his 18-year-old son Daniel, a youth team player, were also battling the disease. “Paolo and Daniel are both well and have already completed two weeks at home without contact with others,” said a statement from AC Milan.“They will now remain in quarantine until clinically recovered, as per the medical protocols outlined by the health authorities.”Maldini, 51, is considered one of the greatest defenders of all time.He won five Champions Leagues with Milan and appeared in 647 matches.Juventus teammates Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have also tested positive for the disease which has claimed almost 800 lives in Italy.

Steelers prep for post-lockout transition period

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP)—New Steelers secondary coach Carnell Lake walked through the team’s practice facility on Pittsburgh’s South Side late Monday afternoon with a purpose.“Now,” Lake said as he headed up the stairs to the coaches’ offices, “the real work begins.”Hours after the NFL’s four-and-a-half-month lockout was officially lifted, things weren’t quite back to normal yet at Steelers headquarters. But they were at least on the way to getting there.By Tuesday morning, players were permitted to report to the team facility for voluntary workouts. And like the other 31 teams, the Steelers were to open negotiations with unsigned players.Still, expect some confusion and chaos during what will be a frenzied week. Even Steelers President Art Rooney II—a member of the owners’ labor committee—was hazy on the terms of the transition period for the new collective bargaining agreement and its compacted schedule.The Steelers will report to St. Vincent College in Latrobe by 3 p.m. Thursday and will perform a conditioning drill. Their first official practice is Friday.“We only received this memo a short time ago, so I want to put a little caveat out there: I could be wrong,” Rooney said midway through a late-afternoon Monday press conference. “I am going to give the best information I can give you.”It became clear Rooney, like everyone else, still was learning the details of the free-agency period, signing deadlines, reporting dates and training camp practices that traditionally take place over the course of months, but is compressed into mere days in this most unusual of offseasons.“It’s fair to say we’re in uncharted territory,” Rooney said. “We’ve never had to start up a league year like this. It will be different, but every team is in the same boat. Once we get to September, I know that coach (Mike) Tomlin feels like we’ll be prepared to play, and that’s got to be our mindset: Be ready to play when the season kicks off.”Tomlin said back in March that the lockout could, in fact, be an advantage to the Steelers. The team has a veteran roster already set in its ways that, the theory goes, has less to gain from offseason workouts than a younger, less-experienced team.Also, Tomlin reasoned, the Steelers annually undergo little turnover relative to many other teams. Plus, there was less wear-and-tear this summer on the team’s older bodies.“Having a veteran team can be an advantage in a lot of different circumstances,” Rooney said. “But it is hard to predict. It is up to our players and coaches to make sure that is an advantage and prepare in a way to take advantage of that if that occurs.”Pittsburgh has 14 unrestricted free agents and two restricted free agents, but only one of those players (cornerback Ike Taylor) started on offense or defense last season. Taylor is the only Steelers free agent expected to garner heavy attention on the open market, though other contributors of last season’s AFC-champion team are free agents.Also, the Steelers are currently over the salary cap of $120 million, and Rooney said the team will be talking with some its players about restructuring their contracts to provide cap relief this season.“Being prepared to get under the cap is something we’ve been through before. The challenge this time around is to handle that business in such a short period of time,” Rooney said. “But our guys are back there right now, trying to work on how we will get there and trying to piece together the rosters.”The players association successfully negotiated the elimination of two-a-day practices and reduced practice workloads both in terms of frequency and in their intensity.Rooney said he had “mixed feelings” about such things, but that it was an issue the owners gave on.“It’s probably fair to say that if it were up to us, we probably would have had a little different approach to some of the practice rules,” Rooney said.Although Rooney said he had not yet spoken to commissioner Roger Goodell about any of the Steelers recent potential violations of the league’s personal-conduct policy, he did say that he expected to hear from Goodell soon.Earlier this month, receiver Hines Ward was arrested on a drunken driving charge, and linebacker James Harrison was quoted in Men’s Journal magazine ripping Goodell in scathing fashion.“These things will be under review by the commissioner’s office in due time,” he said, “and we will be communicating about these things.”last_img read more

SNOW CHIEF STAKES QUOTES

first_imgFLAVIEN PRAT, NEVERADOUBT, WINNER: “(Mike) Puype was pretty confident before the race. I didn’t know this horse but the pace helped him a lot and the track was a little bit soft and that helped as well. The pace was pretty fast so that’s good when you’re behind.“He doesn’t look like he’s got a turn of foot but he’s got one pace. I didn’t think I would win but I thought we would be close, third, second.“There wasn’t any bumping (in response to Rafael Bejarano’s claim of foul) It was pretty tough but he was never tired. He won pretty easy today.”VICTOR ESPINOZA, ZINVOR, FIFTH: “He broke too sharp. There were fast fractions and I was trying to relax him but he was a little bit too keen. The outside horse was pushing me and that’s when he got a little aggressive. I wanted him to break clean and be comfortable either on the lead or behind but be relaxed but that never happened. On the first turn he was working too much, too hard and it was just too much for him.”TRAINER QUOTES             MIKE PUYPE, NEVERADOUBT, WINNER: “Flavien rode a great race and saved a lot of ground. Tom Hudson, who manages the horses, wanted to go in the race. Tom said, ‘He should go the distance. He’s doing good.’ But Flavien Prat rode the race and it was a great ride. We just took a shot he could cover the distance.“It was a good ride and patient handling and he did a great job with the horse. He had a big abscess in his foot (right hind) a few weeks ago and it took time to get it taken care of. The shoer did a good job, he put a bar shoe on him and got him to where we could get him back to the track to train and it was wonderful.(On running this kind of race in only his fourth start): “He broke his maiden the first time and what a great ride today. We couldn’t be happier with the event.“The second race on the dirt, he was rank, threw his head and didn’t like the dirt. Third race was an open allowance race; it wasn’t a Cal-Bred race. It was a sprint and it wasn’t that bad of a race. Realistically, handicapping the race, I didn’t think any of these horses were that great at a mile-and-an-eighth. We were just hoping the distance would be the equalizer to allow us to have a chance. Remember this, if you look at the history of the Snow Chief and look at the stats, plenty of longshots and maiden winners have won this. You better believe it. It’s because of the distance. There are a lot of good horses bred in California that are fast but a lot that can’t run the full distance and the distance really helped this horse today.(On the inquiry) “There was nothing there. That was a joke of an inquiry.” NOTES: The winning owners are Donald Patrick of San Luis Obispo (SLO Racing); Tom Hudson; and Tony and Suzie Narducci. JOCKEY QUOTES -30-last_img read more

Options on how to treat livestock sales due to adverse weather conditions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Brian E. Ravencraft, CPA with Holbrook & ManterThis article is a follow up to last month’s Crop Insurance Deferral  Considerations as we now turn our attention to options available should farmers find themselves in the unfortunate situation of having to sell livestock due to extreme weather conditions.Livestock sold due to weather related conditionsFarmers forced to sell livestock early to floods, drought, or other adverse weather conditions have two options:1.They may elect to include income from the sale of the additional livestock in the following tax year, or 2. Deem the forced sale as an involuntary conversion.For option one, as prescribed by Internal Revenue Code Section 451, the following conditions are required:The farmer uses cash method of accounting,The farmer can establish that the sale would have occurred but for the weather-related event, andThe weather event resulted in designation of that area (where the livestock resided or where the feed is normally obtained) as eligible for federal assistance. The designation can be made by the President, the Department of Agriculture, or other federal departments or agencies.For example, if Daniel, a cash method taxpayer, usually sells 500 head of cattle in a normal year. As a result of a severe drought, he sells 750 head during the current year at $1,000 per head and realizes $750,000 of income from his sale. The area was declared a disaster area by a federal agency and ruled eligible for federal disaster assistance. Daniel can defer $250,000 ($1,000 x 250 head) of income to the following year, which is the portion of the original $750,000 (750 head) that exceeded the normal number of cattle sold (500 head). Option two: Involuntary Conversion RulesThis one is perhaps the better solution. Under Code Section 1033, the sale of livestock (other than poultry) held for draft, breeding, or dairy animals due adverse weather-related conditions (droughts, floods and other weather related conditions designated as eligible for federal assistance) in excess of the number of livestock that normally would have sold can be treated as an involuntary conversion. To meet the involuntary conversion requirements, the farmer must replace the livestock within four years (the replacement period) after the end of the first year in which any part of the gain from the conversion is realized.This provision provides a much greater deferral opportunity over the one year deferral under Code Section 451, as explained above. In an involuntary conversion, the excess gain that was to be recognized on the sale reduces the basis of the replacement livestock. This procedure defers the gain until the replacement livestock is ultimately sold, which could be perhaps spread over several years. In most instances, the involuntary conversion election will be the most advantageous.The farmer has options when the involuntary election is made. No gain is recognized in the year of sale and the farmer has until the end of the replacement period to determine which of the following is most advantageous:Report the sale and gain in the year the event occurred on an amended return,Report the gain in the year after it occurred, orDefer the gain by reducing the basis of the replacement livestock.If the farmer cannot reinvest the proceeds from the sale in similar property or property related in the use of livestock, the code allows for the farmer to reinvest in other farm property to avoid recognition of the gain.Finally, livestock destroyed by disease, or are sold or exchanged because of disease can be treated as an involuntary conversion, but the replacement period is only two years.Over the course of your farming careers, you are bound to be hit with these situations. Know the tax ramifications and potential solutions can be a useful planning tool.As always, consult with your CPA about your concerns.

Fifty years after its invention by the British Royal Navy for use by fighter pilots, the technology of layering information on top of our naked view of the world may soon cross over the line between science fiction and mass consumer experience. “The internet smeared all over everything.” An “enchanted window” that turns contextual information hidden all around us inside out. A platform that will be bigger than the Web. Those are the kinds of phrases being used to describe the future of what’s called Augmented Reality (AR), by specialists developing the technology to enable it. Big questions remain unanswered, though, about the viability of what could be a radical next step in humanity’s use of computers.5 Ways Sentiment Analysis is Ramping Up in 2009 The New York Times had an article this week about sentiment analysis, a trend which has been accelerating on the back of the Real-time Web – and Twitter in particular. Sentiment analysis is no short-term hot trend. It will eventually become a key feature of search engines, which will integrate the aggregate sentiment of the crowd into search results. In our post we take a look at five examples of how sentiment analysis is starting to ramp up on the Web.

Nuggets top Lakers as LeBron passes Jordan

While the Lakers aired a tribute video during the ensuing timeout, James covered his face with a towel, apparently crying under it.“A lot of stuff that I’ve done in my career, this ranks right up at the top (with) winning a championship,” James said. “For a kid from Akron, Ohio, that needed inspiration and needed some type of positive influence, M.J. was that guy for me. I watched him from afar, wanted to be like M.J., wanted to shoot fadeaways like M.J., wanted to stick my tongue out on dunks like M.J., wanted to wear my sneakers like M.J. I wanted kids to look up to me at some point like M.J., and it’s crazy, to be honest. ”ADVERTISEMENT The 34-year-old James began the night needing 13 points to pass one of his heroes.

Indian woman creates history, climbs Mount Everest twice within a week

first_imgAn Indian climber on Sunday reached the summit of Mount Everest for the second time in less than a week, her expedition team said, setting a women’s record for a double ascent of the world’s highest mountain in a single season.Anshu Jamsenpa, 37, returned from the 8,848-metre (29,028-feet) peak on May 16, before turning around after a short rest to repeat the feat.”Anshu reached the summit of Everest at 8:00 am (0215 GMT) today for the second time this season, setting a new record,” said Dawa Lama of Dream Himalaya Adventures.Jamsenpa, a mother of two, was blessed by Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama before leaving for the expedition.The current female record, certified by Guinness World Records, is held by Nepali climber Chhurim Sherpa, who in 2012 become the first woman to scale the peak twice in a season.Jamsenpa has climbed Mount Everest five times.She intended to make the summit in 2014 but the climbing season was cancelled after an avalanche killed 16 Nepali guides.Another attempt the following year was foiled after an avalanche — this one triggered by a massive earthquake that left swathes of Nepal in ruins — killed 18 people at Base Camp.Last week, Nepali climber Lhakpa Sherpa broke her own record for the greatest number of summits by a woman after scaling the peak for an eighth time.More than 120 climbers have made the summit this season, with the first ascents delayed by high winds, fresh snowfall and unusually cold temperatures.There are concerns that a high number of summit permits issued by Nepal could cause dangerous “traffic jams” on the mountain as climbers target a brief window of favourable weather before the monsoon in June.advertisementThis year’s climbing season has already been marred by two deaths, including legendary Swiss climber Ueli Steck who fell from a ridge during an acclimatisation climb.last_img read more
