Cardale Jones Softball SwingUpdate: It turns out Joey Bosa doesn’t suck at softball. He hit a home run during the intra-team scrimmage.Earlier: Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones is a gifted athlete – that’s been made clear over the past five or six months. But he doesn’t seem to have much talent for hitting a softball. Friday, OSU’s Instagram account posted a funny video of Jones completely whiffing on a high-arc softball pitch. One of his teammates took footage of it, and even slowed it down to show how much he missed the ball by.Thankfully, Ohio State fans don’t really have to worry here. Whatever 35+ softball team he joins two decades from now might want to, though.

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Friday declared its first list of 21 candidates in Maharashtra for next month’s Lok Sabha polls, retaining 17 sitting MPs and denying ticket to the lawmaker who had allegedly slapped an Air India employee in 2017.Ravindra Gaikwad, the 59-year-old MP from Osmanabad constituency, had hit an Air India staffer with a slipper at the IGI Airport in New Delhi and then openly boasted about it. The Sena replaced Gaikwad, who briefly faced a travel ban by airlines for his act, with Omraje Nimbalkar in Osmanabad in central Maharashtra. Another Sena Member of Parliament, Rajan Vichare, who was accused of force-feeding a canteen employee on fast during Ramzan in 2014, has been fielded again from Thane. As per the pre-poll alliance sealed by the BJP and the Shiv Sena, the former will contest on 25 seats and the latter on 23 out of the Lok Sabha 48 constituencies in Maharashtra. Of these 23 seats, the Uddhav Thackeray-led party announced candidates on 21, leaving out two constituencies — Palghar and Satara — in the first list. Currently, the Palghar seat adjoining Mumbai has a BJP MP, but the Sena has staked its claim to the constituency. “We will announce the names of remaining candidates by Sunday,” senior Sena leader and Maharashtra minister Subhash Desai told reporters here after releasing the list.

It seems West Ham have lodged a bid to sign Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid in the current summer transfer window, according to reports from TMW.If the claim is true, the Hammers would become the leading club in the chase to sign the Croatian midfielder, who has shown repeatedly he desires to exit the Spanish giants.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.After starting only 10 times in La Liga last season, Kovacic is open for new offers that would grant him regular game time. He has also been linked with a move to Arsenal and Tottenham in the past, but no obvious sign of genuine move has been seen so far including signs that suggest real move over speculations that he could decide to move to the Italian sides Juventus, Roma and Napoli.On the other hand, Read West Ham believes that a deal to sign Kovacic would certainly be something of a coup for Manuel Pellegrini’s men, as the new Hammers boss looking to bring in some fresh faces over the summer.
Sinisa Mihajlovic has sued Sporting Lisbon for €11m in damages citing wrongful dismissal and reputational damage.Mihajlovic was signed by President Bruno de Carvalho but he was then deposed by Sporting Lisbon’s Board of Directors.A new President was put in place who then fired Mihajlovic just nine days later. And he never even had the chance to arrive for pre-season training.Sporting Lisbon now confirm that Mihajlovic is suing them for €11.195m. Football Italia reports.“I can confirm that I was sacked without just cause by Sporting CP just a few days before the start of the contract that would’ve tied me to the club for three seasons.” Mihajlovic told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.Tottenham did not have the credentials to buy Fernandes George Patchias – September 5, 2019 Sporting president Varandas says Tottenham did not have the credentials to fulfill the bid for Bruno FernandesIn an interview with Sporting Lisbons president Frederico…“In the middle of June, I went to Lisbon to negotiate with the Sporting directors for my personal terms and those of my staff.

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner believes his team deserved at least a point from their game against Liverpool.The Terriers lost 1-0 to the Reds on home soil and Wagner argued a first-half handball in the box by Milner could have given his side a chance to score their first home goal in the Premier League this season.“This handball situation was a huge situation and I don’t understand why it wasn’t a penalty,” he said, according to Herald.“I haven’t spoken to the referee.”“It was a clear handball and the ball changed direction because of this handball and Laurent Depoitre couldn’t receive the ball. It is handball. That could easily decide the direction of the match.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie missed the game’s best second-half chance in the 82nd minute, leaving the Terriers goalless in their last seven home league games, a new club record.Despite putting up a good fight against Liverpool, Huddersfield defender Chris Lowe cut a dejected figure afterward.“It gives us a bit of confidence if we see that we can give them a real fight and play really well against such a team,” Lowe said.“But the most important thing is to get the first win and get some points on the board.”“We’ve played some good games in the past few weeks, but in the end, we are here after the game with nothing in our hands and that is the most important thing.”
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wouldn’t underestimate his team when both sides meet on Sunday.The Reds host United at Anfield looking to maintain their unbeaten run in the Premier League this season, and knowing a victory against their arch rivals will see them return to the top of the league.Notwithstanding, Mourinho is of the opinion that Klopp will not be underestimating the challenge that awaits, regardless of the visitors’ inconsistent campaign so far.“I think Liverpool are obviously very, very confident but I think they are not stupid.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hailed Mohamed Salah’s goal as “world-class” as they made a welcome return to winning ways.Following back-to-back 1-1 draws in their last two Premier League games, Liverpool showed Bournemouth no mercy at Anfield to claim a convincing 3-0 win.Sadio Mane opened the scoring with a header in the 24th-minute from James Milner’s cross for his fourth goal in a row.10 minutes later, Georgino Wijnaldum found the net after controlling Andrew Robertson’s lofted pass and then raising the ball over Bournemouth keeper Artur Boruc.Then a brilliant bit of teamwork saw Milner, Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino all get in on the act with the latter’s backheel enabling Salah to finish the manoeuvre off by smashing it into the far corner of the net.“We were not happy with the performances from the previous two games and struggled a bit with set-pieces. There were a lot of things we had to improve,” Klopp told BBC.“We have high expectations and today we won in an impressive manner – we had some outstanding performances on the pitch. Goal number three was world-class.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We wanted to show a reaction.

We pride ourselves in never quitting. We lived on the edge a little bit but looked more of a threat in the second half.“We had some moments early in the match. We looked fine until that first goal went in.”Liverpool have now moved back to the top of the Premier League table on 65 points from 26 games.
© 2013 Phys.org DARPA’s ATLAS robot unveiled (w/ Video) The feat is a tribute to the company’s control system for the robot. The demo shows how Atlas can stay upright using kinematic and load data from its sensors. Commenting on his reaction to seeing Atlas stay balanced despite being hit by the ball, Noel Sharkey, professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at the University of Sheffield, told the BBC it was “an astonishing achievement” and “remarkable feat.” Next on the engineering agenda is to give Atlas an articulated head with stereo cameras and a laser range finder, along with sensate hands capable of using tools. More information: www.bostondynamics.com/index.html Legged Squad Support System (LS3) is a four-legged robot designed to travel 20 miles on rough terrain carrying 400 lbs of load. The video shows field testing at Twentynine Palms, CA. Testing includes rough-terrain mobility, endurance, visually guided following, GPS guided maneuver, and overall reliability. LS3 is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA and the US Marine Corps. The company’s history dates back to when it was a spinoff from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where Marc Raibert and colleagues developed animal-inspired robots. They founded the company in 1992. This document is subject to copyright.

Explore further Atlas is part of the DARPA Robotics Challenge Program. The robot is tethered, powered from an off-board, electric power supply. Atlas’ reason for being is to serve as a humanoid robot that will be capable enough to move in outdoor, rough terrain. The limbs need to perform well, to be able to lift, carry and manipulate in rough environments. Atlas was unveiled in July at the company, as a robot that can respond to dangerous emergencies.The video shows the Atlas robot now on rough terrain walking with bent knees and arms stretched, on rubble and rocks, maintaining its balance as it moves along. In another scene, a ball is trying to knock it over as Atlas stands on one foot, maintaining its balance even while standing on one leg and being hit by the ball from the side. WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far WildCat has run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits. The video shows WildCat’s best performance so far. This month, Boston Dynamics also posted a video of its WildCat robot, funded by DARPA and developed for emergency response and aid scenarios, in a public outing beyond and free from indoor treadmills. The big news about WildCat is that, unlike its robotic cousin Cheetah, this quadruped is untethered. Cheetah drew attention for its speed; the robot could run at 28 miles per hour but that was on a treadmill indoors tethered to a power supply. WildCat can sprint and gallop unrestrained at 16 miles per hour outside of the lab. The video shows its capabilities. (Phys.org) —Boston Dynamics, the Waltham, Massachusetts robotics company that receives funds from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is making more video news. Whether the company turns out videos of intros and updates of robots such as BigDog, or Petman, or Cheetah, its animal- and human-inspired robots promptly make the rounds of dozens of news sites and blogs. The company has made these robots interesting works in progress, as we see them, from development phase to phase, advancing in balance, agility, speed and strength. This month’s video hits from Boston Dynamics show the company’s two tests, for its bipedal Atlas and its quadruped WildCat.
