What do Curiosity

What do Curiosity, the Hiroshima bomb, Cox and a bunch of scientists and ex-scientists under the moniker ‘Occam’s Typewriter’ have common? Scientists at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory celebrate the safe Milan Lucic Jersey landing of the Curiosity rover on . Photograph: Dovarganes AP I set alarm for 6 am on Monday 6 2012 I would wake time to follow the live feed of the landing of Nasa’s Curiosity rover on . As a scientist who is also a bit of a , this is the sort of thing I like to do. Back I got up even earlier to catch a glimpse of the last transit of that occur lifetime. […]

NBA coaches and players speak out about racial violence in U.S.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest of kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games, citing racial injustice and police brutality, has sparked a major reaction across the sports world. During the NBA’s media days around the country on Monday, players and coaches spoke out about the social issues the U.S. is facing. San Antonio Spurs’ coach Gregg Popovich gave a pointed response when asked his thoughts about social unrest in the country. And Kupchak again deferred such questions as the youthful Lakers, without the retired Kobe Bryant, opened training camp. “I’m not really in a position to debate some of the stuff,” Kupchak said. “I’m not even sure […]

Point guards hold the key to New York Knicks’ summer 2017 plans

Training camp is still a few weeks away. Opening night is nearly two months away. So there’s plenty of time to talk about pertinent issues surrounding the 2016-17 New York Knicks. Among them: Will Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Brandon Jennings stay healthy? How much of the triangle offense will Jeff Hornacek implement — and how much will he tweak? Do the Knicks have enough in the second unit to contend for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference? Answers to all of these questions, of course, will arrive in the coming months. Will the Knicks be among those teams? That depends largely on what happens with Rose and, to […]

Alex Reyes could supplant Jaime Garcia in Cardinals’ rotation

Can the St. Louis Cardinals afford to have two rookie pitchers in their starting rotation when the games become do-or-die? Can they afford not to? After all, it is the veterans who have gotten them into this touch-and-go spot. “I’m trying to figure out what’s going on, whether it’s push things a little more or back off. I’m doing everything that’s in my power to be the best I can for the team, and unfortunately, I’ve let my team down,” Garcia said. “I’ve been through tough times before, and I’m going to continue to do what I can to fight and be there for the team.” And more and more […]

No. 1 pick Jared Goff might not even be Rams’ No. 2 QB

Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick who is expected to become the face of the Los Angeles Rams, isn’t even a No. 2 quarterback right now. The video was captured for “A Season With Florida State Football,” a TV show that premiered Tuesday on Showtime. “I really don’t think they needed it,” Winston said of the speech. “I think Coach Fisher was going to get in their tail — like he could barely talk — but he was still getting on them. I just felt like I needed to say that.” At the half, the Noles were down 28-13. Francois had led a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive with 0:28 […]

Starter-turned-reliever Joe Kelly part of Red Sox’s first wave of call-ups

BOSTON — Yoan Moncada will hog the headlines, but he won’t be the only player to join the Boston Red Sox on Friday. To mark the annual expansion of major league rosters in September, relievers Joe Kelly and Robby Scott, and infielder Deven Marrero will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket, the Red Sox announced late Thursday night. In addition, catcher Ryan Hanigan will be reinstated from the disabled list after missing nearly all of August because of left ankle tendinitis. “Sometimes I feel fine, sometimes I feel tired,” Chapman said before the game. “Sometimes I feel good pitching three in a row. Sometimes I don’t.” OK then. Well, Maddon […]

red soxs mookie betts hit 30th home run

The emerging power of Mookie Betts allowed the recently installed cleanup man to reach a special place in Red Sox history on Monday night. When Betts clubbed his 30th homer run, a towering shot off of a sign behind the Monster Seats in the bottom of the second inning against the Rays, he became just the third Boston player to reach that number in a season before turning 24 years old. The others? Hall of Famer Ted Williams, who did it in 1939 and 1941, and Tony Conigliaro, who achieved the feat in 1965. Betts turns 24 on Oct. 7, five days after the regular season ends. At that point, […]

Bill Walton still blames self for Clippers’ departure from San Diego

San Diego hasn’t had an NBA team in more than three decades and is unlikely to ever get one again — and Bill Walton still blames himself. Walton recalled a time Hayes phoned his house, and his mother answered. In an attempt to muster up support for the cause, Nazari wrote: “Ladies and gentlemen, the great state of Oklahoma has been betrayed. As many of you know, Kevin Durant has left our state, torn out our hearts, and left our beloved Oklahoma City Thunder in depleted shape. All of this after even being offered a cabinet position for the State of Oklahoma. It is because of this heinous action that […]

Memo to Jets: More not always merrier when it comes to quarterbacks

A look at what’s happening around the New York Jets: 1. Four! It might seem crazy to some, but the Jets are trending toward keeping four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. Some perspective: In 2015, nearly half the teams (15) opened the season with only two quarterbacks, while 17 (including the Jets) began with three on the roster, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The most recent team to carry four was the 2013 Washington Redskins. 2. Masking other problems: The Jets must be a pretty good team if the hottest preseason issue is the backup quarterback. 3. Geno speaks: Geno Smith ended his weeklong media silence on Friday, when […]
