He added: “Dan is one of those riders who you don’t want to give too much time to. He’s the kind of rider on his day who can rise to the occasion. If he gets in a lucky break and gets five, 10 minutes up, it would be very hard to get them back.” Martin is likely to play a key mountain support role to Garmin-Sharp team-mate Ryder Hesjedal, the 2012 Giro d’Italia champion, but the Irishman is capable of seizing any opportunity. “Dan’s the kind of guy who will look for those lucky breaks,” Roche added. “He isn’t the kind of guy who would say, ‘The Tour’s not for me, it’s too big for me’. “I know deep down he’s thinking, ‘I can win this’. They will underestimate him a little bit, but at the same time, Dan’s the kind of guy that even if they do give him the recognition that he deserves, he can slip away. “He’s the kind of guy where you don’t see him and he’s gone. He can hide very well and can make himself forgotten easily. He’s one of these guys who is a joker for any big tour, capable of winning stages, sourcing the lucky break and gaining some time. “He’s very consistent. We saw that in the Tour of Spain two years ago (when Martin finished 13th). He’s getting stronger and stronger and definitely this year a top-10 contender.” Another Irishman, Nicolas Roche, faces a new experience at the Tour. The son of the 1987 winner is used to leading a team at the Tour and carrying the expectations, but this time around will be riding for two-time champion Alberto Contador in the Saxo Bank-Tinkoff team. Dan Martin is expected to be confirmed in the Garmin-Sharp Tour team this week and is being backed by 1987 champion Stephen Roche for a successful three weeks in France. There is a caveat to Roche’s comments: he is Martin’s uncle. But there is no doubt the 26-year-old is a prodigious talent, who earlier this year won fabled one-day race Liege-Bastogne-Liege. “Dan is capable of anything,” HotChillee ambassador Roche told Press Association Sport. “Dan’s capable of winning the Tour, more than capable of winning one, two, three stages, maybe.” All British eyes will be on Team Sky’s Chris Froome at the Tour de France, but a Birmingham-born Irishman is capable of upsetting the odds, according to one former winner.

MIAMI, Florida – On Halloween, twice as many kids are hit and killed while walking than on any other day of the year. The sugar rush, yard-to-yard running and sense of community make it easier for a “rules no longer apply” mentality when trick-or-treating.Because of this, each year Federal Express prepares its drivers with tips for safe driving on October 31. As an expert behind the wheel, FedEx has teamed up for 20 years with Safe Kids Worldwide to make sure everyone on the road is as safe as possible on Halloween. The work between FedEx and Safe Kids coincides with the FedEx Cares 50 by 50 initiative, a new journey to positively impact 50 million people around the world by its 50th anniversary in 2023.Below are safety tips from both organizations that encourage safety.FedEx’s Safe Driving Tips:●Pay close attention to stopped or parked vehicles on the road in case they’re dropping off or picking up young children.●Use headlights and hazard lights, turn signals and your horn if necessary to communicate with other drivers and pedestrians.●Watch for children and yield to pedestrians as they might not see you, or maybe distracted.●Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully and wait until you’ve arrived at your destination to use your cellphone.Safe Kids’ Safe Walking Tips:●Carry glow sticks or flashlights, use reflective tape or stickers on costumes and bags.●Always walk on sidewalks or paths, and if there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.●Cross the street at corners; use traffic signals and crosswalks and make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.●Put electronic devices down and keep heads up as you walk across the street.●Watch for cars that are turning or backing up, and don’t cross between parked cars.●Make sure costumes aren’t too long so kids don’t trip on curbs or stairs. Masks can make visibility tough for kids, so choose face paint instead.●Join kids under age 12 for trick-or-treating. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, tell them to stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.Also note that some states have made it illegal for kids over the age of 12 to go trick-or-treating, while others have banned the wearing of masks. Florida has not adopt any age law, but law enforcement officers are discouraging wearing masks, as teens could be confused with criminals who use Halloween as an opportunity to carry out masked robberies.
Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams will miss two games when the NBA season restarts after admitting he visited a strip club, breaking security rules.Some 22 teams and their players are based at Orlando’s Disney World Resort, where the season resumes on Thursday.Williams had permission to leave campus after the death of his grandfather.The 33-year-old would have faced a four-day spell in quarantine but he was photographed at a strip club, meaning he must now spend 10 days in isolation.Williams posted on social media to say his visit to the strip club was brief and that he went there to eat because it is his favourite restaurant.“Ask any of my team-mates what my favourite restaurant in Atlanta is,” he tweeted. “Ain’t nobody partying. Chill out lol.” Williams will now miss games against the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans.He averaged 18.7 points, 5.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 60 games, including eight starts, before the regular season was shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I think at times obviously the execution could have been better. I just don’t think we played well behind him,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of a defense that made three errors (two by first-base trainee Joc Pederson). Gonsolin contributed to his own troubles by failing to cover first base in time on one play and allowing three stolen bases as well.“It’s funky. You get that first hit … you get ahead 1-2 and to his credit (Jarrod) Dyson just lays down a perfect bunt. Then we don’t cover first base and I think things just sped up there. We know (Tim) Locastro is a good runner. He steals second and the next thing you know all heck is breaking loose. It’s just part of the process, part of the experience.”Gonsolin was willing to accept and even described the experience as … fun.“It was a lot of fun,” Gonsolin said anyway. “Definitely a learning opportunity.“Results-wise, not the best obviously. But my takeaway is it was a lot of fun. A lot of firsts for me and you can always get better.” Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dyson started things with that bunt single. Then Gonsolin was slow to cover first base on a ground ball to Pederson and Locastro beat him to the base for an infield single. Pederson botched a ground ball by David Peralta, the first of his two errors as the Dodgers continue to force-feed him as a first baseman.“We’re committing to it,” Roberts said of Pederson, who has started five of the past six games at first base. “He’s fine catching the baseball, for me. He’s taken grounders the last few years. But obviously, in the game, things speed up. That’s part of it.”Dyson and Locastro each stole second base after their singles. The Diamondbacks hadn’t hit a ball out of the infield and Gonsolin had already surrendered his first run as an MLB pitcher on the error.Then Eduardo Escobar hit a ball out of the infield – way out. His three-run home run made it a 4-0 start for Gonsolin’s big-league career.“That first inning was a tough one,” Dodgers catcher Russell Martin said. “It just sucks – for the team, not just for him on the mound – when you give up free baserunners and you have to get more than three outs in an inning. I felt like he had to get five or six outs that inning. It’s just tough.”Things got marginally better from there. The Diamondbacks scored another unearned run in the second after a throwing error by shortstop Chris Taylor and Dyson drove in another run in the fourth.The lone highlight for Gonsolin – who split time between pitching and playing the outfield at St. Mary’s College before he was drafted by the Dodgers in 2016 – was a single in his first big-league at-bat.Related Articles Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “I think he’s definitely going to be a good pitcher,” Martin said of Gonsolin, who is likely to be optioned back to OKC on Thursday. “I like his mix – good fastball, good changeup, good slider and good curveball. Just a little bit of bad luck for him tonight.”Put in an early hole by Gonsolin’s struggles – and their failure to support him defensively – the Dodgers never mounted much of a comeback effort, managing just five hits against an assortment of Diamondbacks pitchers.One of those hits was Cody Bellinger’s 26th home run of the season (surpassing his total from 2018 in just 82 games this year), a 427-foot solo shot into the camera-well opening in the hitter’s background in straightaway center field.The home run was the 90th of Bellinger’s three-year career and came in his 372nd major-league game. According to STATS. com, that is the fastest any Dodger has reached 90 home runs. Mike Piazza hit 90 home runs in his first 378 games.With an eye toward the upcoming four-game series at bullpen-taxing Coors Field, Roberts sent Martin out to pitch the eighth inning. It was his second pitching appearance this season (and of his career) and he has retired the side in order both times. Against the Diamondbacks, Martin touched 90 mph while striking out pinch-hitter Christian Walker.

In organisation of SKI Club ”Karaula”, on 2 and 3 February 2013, there will be a BiH Championship in slalom and giant slalom for younger contestants.It is a traditional event called ”Vlašić Cup” and it is being held in Babanovac.This 9th ”Vlašić Cup” will host over 200 skiers from the entire BiH.
DES MOINES — Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack — who served eight years as President Obama’s secretary of agriculture — says having congress ratify the “U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement” will provide stability to farmers and momentum for other trade deals.“Having this agreement passed creates optimism, creates a hopefulness about the future,” Vilsack said Monday, “which is incredibly important for agriculture and for the food industry, to have that optimism that things are going to be better.”Vilsack hosted a forum early Monday morning in central Iowa with representatives from most of the state’s ag commodity groups.“This isn’t about giving President Trump a victory. It’s about giving the farmers in this room a victory,” Vilsack said. “It’s about giving all the people who are connected to the food and agriculture industry a victory. It’s about giving the American economy a victory.”According to Vilsack, 28 percent of the American workforce is employed in the food and agricultural sector. Vilsack is now president and CEO of the U.S. Dairy Export Council. He said the USMCA preserves Mexico as a market for about 30 percent of all U.S. dairy products. The new agreement also opens Canada to more U.S. dairy sales, Vilsack said.Drew Mogler of the Iowa Pork Producers Association said the deal is important because one out of every four hams produced in the U.S. ends up in Mexico.“Last year, Iowa exported about $700 million worth of pork to both Canada and Mexico,” he said. “This year our exports have dropped off a little bit, volume-wize, down to Mexico, so getting some certainly back (for) producers is important for us.”Greta Irwin of the Iowa Turkey Federation said Mexico is the number one foreign market for U.S. turkey and the deal could increase turkey exports to Canada by up to 30 percent.“This type of agreement is huge for our industry,” Irwin said.Kevin Studer of the Iowa Corn Growers said the USMCA is the kind of “break” farmers need.“This spring has been a mess. We all know it. We’ve got to get this anxiety off the table,” Studer said. “Let’s clear the deck on USMCA. Let’s get our trade people to be able to focus on getting China done.”The U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement is also important for the state’s biofuels industry. Monte Shaw of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association said Mexico is an emerging market for Iowa-produced ethanol.“If that market were to go away because this (USMCA) fell apart and we actually pulled out for some period of time from NAFTA, that’d be like shutting down three and a half plants,” Shaw said.The Trump Administration has not yet forwarded the new trade agreement for North America to congress. Once that happens, the U.S. House and Senate will have 30 days to ratify it. Vilsack said it would be best to have that vote this year, rather than having it happen in 2020 — during a politically-charged election year.
