Miami: Novak Djokovic put his Indian Wells disappointment behind him on Friday at the ATP and WTA Miami Open with a ruthless 7-6 (7/2) 6-2 destruction of Australian Bernard Tomic to move into the third round. The Serbian world number one endured a meek exit at the hands of German Philipp Kohlschreiber in the California desert but arrived desperate to land what would be a record seventh title in South Florida. Tomic, the current world No. 81, gave the 31-year-old a few problems yet the Australian struggles to consistently challenge the best players and this was evident once again as Djokovic eased through the gears at Hard Rock Stadium with just one hour and 13 minutes on the clock. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh “In Indian Wells I wasn’t feeling my best,” conceded Djokovic who won 81 per cent of points on his first serve and hit 11 aces. “Everyone has nerves coming onto center court regardless of how much experience you have and what your ranking is. You care about it and if you are nervous that means you care. “I commonly feel like that. This was my first time playing at this new stadium, it felt like being indoor a little bit. It’s unique. “Now hopefully,” he added, “I can build some momentum.” On a day that saw Djokovic, top-ranked woman Naomi Osaka and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams advance, the shock of the day was the departure of Indian Wells Masters winner Dominic Thiem, who was beaten 6-4 6-4 by highly rated Polish 22-year-old Hubert Hurkacz.

The fifth seed lost to Serbian Dusan Lajovic 2-6 6-2 6-3 but reigning champion John Isner outlasted Italian qualifier Lorenzo Sonego 7-6 (7/2) 7-6, (9/7). Japanese star Osaka had to keep her emotions in check as she opened her campaign by outlasting Yanina Wickmayer 6-0 6-7 (3/7) 6-1. Since winning her second consecutive Grand Slam title in January at the Australian Open, Osaka has failed to go deep in Dubai or Indian Wells. But she appeared in solid form against 141st-ranked Wickmayer, despite losing her way in the middle of an entertaining match at Hard Rock Stadium. The 21 year-old was forced to dig deep after the Belgian, who reached the Miami Open last eight in 2010, forced a third set as Osaka’s game badly dipped. – ‘Just breathe’ – ================== “In the second set, I got really emotional, so in the third, I just tried to shut off my feelings,” Osaka said. “I started thinking about winning and not the things I could do in order to win. I had a dip and she started playing really well. “I just had to breathe and regroup,” she said. “I find myself doing it often when I am in emotional situations, it’s like an energy saver.” Next up in the third round is Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-Wei, who defeated American Alison Riske 6-2, 7-5. The pair had a rollercoaster clash in the Australian Open at the start of 2019 with Hsieh a set and 4-1 up in Melbourne only to lose a dramatic third-round encounter. Serena Williams survived a second-set lull to beat Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson 6-3 1-6 6-1 and elder sister Venus also advanced with a 7-6 (7/4) 6-1 win over Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro. There will be a repeat of last week’s WTA final in Indian Wells between Bianca Andreescu and Angelique Kerber. Canadian 18-year-old Andreescu, who brilliantly won her maiden WTA title in California, beat American Sofia Kenin 6-3 6-3 to book a third-round meeting with three-time Grand Slam winner Kerber, who saw off Russia’s Karolina Muchova 3-6 6-3 6-3.

Boys have been lagging behind girls in academic achievement in recent years, and John Storm says it’s a modern dynamic that signals trouble.John StormStorm, a community volunteer and owner of Oxford Learning in St. Catharines, worries for our social and financial future. Young men are earning fewer degrees, gaining fewer employable skills and lagging behind girls in test scores, he said.Storm will be the main speaker at an upcoming Community Learning session on Oct. 17 entitled “The education of boys: our goals and fears.”“I hope by the end of the evening that we have a few people who can spark the same conversation with other groups of people,” he said. “This is an important issue.”The session is just one of 14 Conversation Cafés planned for the Community Learning fall season. “The education of boys: our goals and fears” will be moderated by Kim Yielding, manager of communications and public relations with the District School Board of Niagara. Storm will speak for about 15 minutes, followed by about an hour of group discussion.“We know a couple of things,” said Storm, who hosts a weekly current affairs show, Taking Niagara by Storm, on TV Cogeco. “We know that boys are failing academically like never before. We know that their communication skills are lagging.”Kate CassidyIn a transitioning area like Niagara where unemployment is high, it’s important that our young men are flourishing, he said.“My hope is that if we get 15 or 20 people in a room, we can get things done, even if it’s to get more people talking about this.”Getting people talking is the purpose of Community Learning, now in its second year. Other topics this season include “Can human differences peacefully co-exist?” on Nov. 6 and “Why do we hide hurt, illness, and injury?” on Nov. 14.• Download the Community Learning brochure with a full list of sessionsCommunity Learning tackles topics that are current and appeal to a broad range of people, said director Kate Cassidy.“We try to bring different people together from across Niagara who wouldn’t typically have the opportunity to interact with each other to discuss questions with no easy answers and hear other’s unique perspectives.”Conversation Cafes are free and held in meeting rooms and coffee shops across Niagara, Cassidy said. Some people come with statistics. Some people come with opinions.“Whatever people want to bring to it, we want them there,” she said. “If they want to come listen, that’s important. If they want to come talk, that’s important too.”Community Learning also hosts Community Discovery events such as the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts on Oct. 15, and “Family Learning Adventures” such as the Robo Tech: Vehicle Challenge on Oct. 15 in Fort Erie and Mega Mystery Niagara at Brock on Oct. 22.Storm will also participate in the session “Why get involved in the community?

Granger hopes for GECOM’s position on early elections within a weekAugust 9, 2019In “latest news” President David Granger has signaled his government’s intention to appeal the High Court’s ruling on the challenge against the house-to-house registration, if the outcome is not favourable.Chief Justice Roxanne George is slated to rule on the cases on August 14 – that is, she will determine whether the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) should proceed with the exercise in light of the Guyana Constitution and the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).When asked this morning if he will accept an unfavourable ruling, President Granger said: “We are ready to pursue any legal action that we feel would be a favourable outcome to have credible elections in Guyana.”“Our concern is credible elections and we have said that over and over again that if the list is flawed then we must correct it,” he posited.When asked pointedly if this means his government will appeal the ruling, if it is not favourable, the Head-of-State contended “I said what I said”.Christopher Ram, a political commentator, lawyer and accountant, has filed a challenge against the ongoing house-to-house registration exercise on the grounds that it violates the CCJ ruling and the Constitution that elections must be held within three months after the passage of a no-confidence motion against a government.The APNU/AFC government was defeated by a no-confidence motion on December 21, 2018.
Epiroc, one of the leaders in mining and mining equipment automation development, says it is constantly pushing the boundaries in the rock excavation industry. Proof of this is that the world’s first fully autonomous SmartROC D65 surface drill rig, is now in production.“In the midst of the 4th industrial revolution, Epiroc presents an important milestone for surface drilling in open-pit mining and quarrying. With a push of a button it is now possible to complete entire drill patterns autonomously.”Not only will this remove the operator from potentially hazardous benches in a mine or a quarry, it will let the operator carry out other tasks while the rig is drilling. Other benefits are increased productivity and better hole quality. This means more holes drilled per shift, in part because automating the drilling process results in continuous operations without breaks and with less wear on drilling tools. In addition to this, positioning is faster and more accurate.Epiroc says the achievement would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the strong partnership between Epiroc and Newmont Goldcorp and their dedicated staff in the Hollinger open-pit mine in Timmins, Canada. Epiroc’s 6th Sense way of working was used to implement and develop the fully autonomous SmartROC D65. In the project, Epiroc and Newmont Goldcorp collaborated on a tailored solution that gathers ongoing insights to optimise process and people performance and unlock the potential of machine automation using interoperability.“The Hollinger project is a perfect example of collaboration between a mining company and Epiroc, which demonstrates what our industry is capable of achieving. The future is very exciting,” says Brian Doffing, President of the Surface and Exploration Drilling division at Epiroc.Autonomous drilling employs already existing technologies developed by Epiroc, such as Rod Handling System (RHS), Hole Navigation System (HNS) and Auto Positioning. Another crucial factor is the scalability of the Rig Control System (RCS).“To make this work we are using the smart functions on the drill rig that are already there. Since we developed these functions over the years we have a good understanding of how to incorporate them in the autonomous mode,” says Mayya Popova, Product Manager Automation, Surface and Exploration Drilling division at Epiroc.
The installation of a FLSmidth KREBS millMAX™ pump at Namawka Diamonds’ Kao mine, in Lesotho, is, according to the mining equipment maker, providing the miner with significant cost savings through increased impeller, casing and back liner wear life.FLSmidth’s engagement at Kao started when the mine required a pump conversion in the field – an undertaking that can be difficult and time consuming, according to the mining OEM. “It is also a high-stakes operation as a cyclone feed is critical to the overall process and ability to generate returns. A wrong decision can mean a lot of lost revenue,” the company said.It was the potential for cost efficiency that convinced Kao diamond mine to implement the KREBS millMAX Pump. After initial discussions, the first trial pump – a millMAX 8×6 centrifugal seal (C/S) – was installed in a cyclone feed application (DMS 2 pump 1).Initial results after seven months showed the millMAX was performing extremely well on the wear side, according to FLSmidth.“So, once you get the green light, you need to confirm the duty details and measure up the existing installation to ensure that when you begin to install the pump there are no surprises,” the company said.Brad Moralee, Head of Product Unit Pumps, Cyclones and Valves at FLSmidth, said: “It’s high pressure for us: you are typically given a window of opportunity during a shutdown to complete the change, after which the new pump must run as expected when the plant is re-started.“You need the combination of a great product but, more importantly, great technical understanding of the duty to be able to propose the correct solution. We understand what is at stake from the customer side.”The change produced impressive results in comparison with the previous solution from another supplier, according to FLSmidth, with the millMAX increasing the wear life by nine times, across impeller, casing and back liner. “This has seen Kao make significant cost saving on direct replacement costs, reduced downtime and saved labour expenditure,” the company said.While Kao mine operators were impressed with the benefits from the switch, a slight gland leakage was causing concern, according to FLSmidth. To resolve this, FLSmidth suggested running a one-month trial with the slurryMAX, which had just recently arrived on the South Africa market.“The slurryMAX trial was based purely on its sealing capabilities as Kao were confident of the hydraulic performance of the pump and had no concern about wear as they were confident the slurryMAX would show predictable and even wear life across all wet-end parts,” the company said.Kao’s confidence also came from the fact the slurryMAX design is based on the millMAX range, whose wear ring technology has created an efficient and long-lasting slurry pump.The main difference between the millMAX and the slurryMAX is that the millMAX is an all-metal pump meaning it does not have an outer casing and an inner wear liner (the casing itself is made from the high chrome wear material), while the slurryMAX is a split casing design that has a replaceable inner liner. The purpose of this design is that multiple material liner options are available to fit in the same outer casing.“The slurryMAX features an improved, more efficient impeller and an optional water drain plug for easier maintenance, allowing water that might have settled at the bottom of the pump to be drained quickly,” the company said.Leigh Rieder, FLSmidth Sales Engineer, concluded: “Kao is extremely happy with the hydraulics and lack of excessive wear of our pumps, which has meant that their cost of ownership is low. We have recently received an order from the customer for two more slurryMAX pumps and they have expressed interest in our slurryMAX 6×4 and slurryMAX 10×8 pumps.”
The news that won’t surprise any gamer out there has been confirmed: Call of Duty is heading to the PS Vita. What may surprise you is the fact it will enjoy a simultaneous launch with the next installment of the game on consoles and PC later this year, suggesting it could offer up a mobile version of what we play on those other formats.In the past, Call of Duty has taken different forms in order to get it running on mobile hardware. As these formats have limited processing capabilities, porting the console version has never really been possible. But the PS Vita is a very powerful machine, and a true port of the console version of the next game is viable, albeit with some graphical effects turned off or level sizes trimmed.Surprisingly, the confirmation of the game for PS Vita didn’t come from Activision. Instead, Sony’s senior vice president of PlayStation Brand Marketing, Guy Longworth, mentioned the game during a chat with GameTrailers’ Geoff Keighley about the launch of the handheld. For Sony to be making a big deal about a game several months away, and before the publisher, shows how important the title is. But it also suggests Sony may be a little concerned about how much interest there is in the Vita. Usually platform holders want to talk about the titles available at launch, not those arriving at the end of the year.It was inevitable that Activision would choose to support the PS Vita. Not only will that mean even more sales for the franchise, they can also advertise how well the Call of Duty Elite service works on the go, therefore enticing more gamers to subscribe.

Gail Cheney holds open the finished “Leadership and Change” robe, woven by her mother Della Cheney. It’s made of merino and alpaca wool. (Photo by James Franco)The biennial culture and dance festival Celebration ended Saturday night in Juneau with a Grand Exit.The gathering of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshians began in 1982 with just a few hundred people. This year, 7,000 were expected in Juneau for the 4-day event.Download AudioThe festival, organized by Sealaska Heritage Institute, included performances, lectures and language sessions. The Juried Art Show features Della Cheney’s Ravenstail robe “Leadership and Change.”When Cheney started weaving the robe in honor of her daughter’s doctorate, she didn’t realize she would go through her own big change.“Every time she wraps the robe around her she is getting a hug from her family,” says Della Cheney, of her daughter Gail Cheney, who’s wearing the robe. (Photo by James Franco)In early 2011, Della Cheney started weaving a Ravenstail robe for her daughter in honor of her doctoral degree. She had weaved about a quarter of it, when she began to feel not right.“I knew something was wrong but I didn’t know, so I went to get my yearly test and they found something abnormal,” Cheney says.She was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. She stopped weaving and had to have surgery and chemotherapy.A year later, Cheney went back to the robe and started over. This meant undoing 14 inches of weaving, more than a year’s worth of work.“You don’t want to have bad feelings in the robe. You don’t want to be weaving while you’re thinking bad things or in a bad place, ” Cheney’s daughter, Gail Cheney, explains. “So can you tell yourself, ‘No, I want to start again’? That’s hard when you’ve gone down as far as she did when she took it back. In the midst of all her challenges, she held herself to a very high standard.”Gail was in the process of getting her Ph.D. in leadership and change from Antioch University, a program focused on bringing about change in workplaces and communities.She was also the Human Resources Director at Sealaska Corp., a position she still holds. Her dissertation explored the future of Native values at an Alaska Native corporation.Gail says Sealaska has been working on integrating Native values at a corporate level for the past few years. She uses Haa Aaní, meaning ‘our land,’ as an example:“We have a sense of what Haa Aaní means at a community level – subsistence, maintaining our resources,” Gail says. “What does that mean at a corporate level? Perhaps it means figuring out sustainable uses because we do need to use our land, but we need to use it in way that it’s there for future generations and for everyone’s use.”Cheney’s challenge was how to show leadership and change in her weaving. She had to work with shapes like rectangles, triangles and squares, characteristic of Ravenstail weaving.“So I chose to do the pattern called the flying geese pattern to show the change with the geese arriving in the spring and leaving in the fall and how the leadership changes when they’re flying in a flock. They take turns leading,” Cheney says.The robe shows three rows of geese changing direction, flying right and left, then right again. The prominent colors are red and white.“The red color shows the power of change and the white color shows the integrity that needs to be followed in order for change to happen,” Cheney says.On the bottom of the robe is a black design that Cheney calls, “All of Our Ancestors.” It’s the foundation of the robe.“That’s where our lives started, was from our ancestors,” she says.The black also represents loss.“We had four of our family members pass away with cancer in the time I started the robe to the end,” Cheney says.For Cheney, no evidence of cancer remains. She says weaving is a form of art therapy and helped her through the process of being OK again.“There’s all that healing that goes on because of that long repetitive movement that you have across the 60-inch robe, going over and under. Each row is a long ways across, maybe 45 minutes to get across. And what do you think about during that time besides the pattern? Really it’s a healing time,” Cheney says.On the top of the robe, Cheney weaved the words Keex’ Kwáan in big, bold letters, which is Tlingit for their home village of Kake. This was Gail’s idea.“She has grown up with this love from our family in Kake, so every time she wraps the robe around her she is getting a hug from her family,” Cheney says.After seven years of studying, Gail received her Ph.D. this past February and had the graduation ceremony in Kake to thank the community. It took her mother three years to finish the robe. In the final year, she brought the loom wherever she went. She weaved in Juneau and Kake. She even brought it to Anchorage.Gail says the robe represents journeys they both finished.“When I look at this I think, ‘I’m done, I’m really done.’ I still have a lot of work to do, but the piece that’s kind of been nagging at me for seven years, the wait’s gone. It’s nice to see it finished. I think she feels the same, ‘Oh thank God, I’m done.’”The robe will outlive both of them, Cheney says. In 500 years, the robe will continue to tell their woven stories of leadership and change.
An Israeli military digger works on the Lebanese-Israeli border next to a wall that was built by Israel in the southern village of Kafr Kila, Lebanon, Tuesday, 4 December 2018. Photo: APThe Israeli military launched an open-ended operation Tuesday to destroy what it said was a network of attack tunnels built by Hezbollah, saying it had foiled a plot by the Iranian-backed militant group to carry out a deadly infiltration in northern Israel.Israeli forces did not enter Lebanese territory, and there was no immediate reaction from Hezbollah. But the Israeli announcement threatened to push the bitter enemies closer to an open confrontation for the first time since a bruising 2006 war. The military said it had protectively increased forces along the border and warned Hezbollah to keep its distance from the tunnels.”Hezbollah knows well that whoever attacks the state of Israel will paid a very heavy price,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a nationally televised address in the evening. “What has been revealed to you now is but a small part of the bigger picture of our preparations and our activities and the activities we’re planning.”The Israeli operation began shortly after Netanyahu returned from a surprise trip to Brussels to meet US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Netanyahu said he had discussed the operation with Pompeo, and he planned to talk to other world leaders, including the UN secretary-general.Israeli military officials have long seen the northern front as the country’s most pressing security concern, with archenemy Iran entrenched in Syria and Hezbollah gaining strength in Lebanon.Hezbollah is believed to be far more powerful than in the monthlong 2006 war, in which it battled Israel to a stalemate. The group has gained valuable battlefield experience fighting alongside Iranian and Syrian troops in Syria’s civil war, and it is believed to possess an arsenal of 150,000 rockets and missiles capable of striking virtually anywhere in Israel.Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, said the army has been tracking the Hezbollah tunnel project since 2014 and that Tuesday’s operation, codenamed “Northern Shield,” had been in the works for a year and a half. He said the tunnels were not yet operational.Standing alongside Netanyahu, Israeli military chief Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said the mission would last for several weeks. “The operation commenced because the threat posed by the tunnels became an immediate and direct threat to residents of the north and Israeli army bases,” he said.The army said the tunnel revealed Tuesday stretched some 200 meters (yards) from a home in the Lebanese village of Kafr Kela across the border and exited in farmland southwest of the pastoral Israeli border town of Metula. It said was outfitted with electricity, a ventilation pipe and a communications cable.Residents told Israeli media they had been hearing digging noises for years and had reported their suspicions to the military.Metula resident Michael Mazeika said he and others received texts early Tuesday from local officials informing them of the situation.”We’ve kind of been waiting for something like this,” he said. “I’m just glad that they found it before anything really bad happened.”People went about their daily routines, he said, and Israel gave them no special orders, signaling it was not expecting an immediate response from Hezbollah.Hezbollah is emerging from Syria’s civil war with thousands of its fighters killed and wounded and is averse to another military adventure with Israel. The group, however, is feeling empowered by what its leadership regards as a victory for their ally, President Bashar Assad, who has survived a seven-year war and revolt against his rule.The group is feeling increasingly emboldened internally in Lebanon, where it made significant gains in parliamentary elections in May. Hezbollah can also count on support from the Lebanese president, who is an ally, in case of confrontation with Israel.There was no immediate comment from Hezbollah.An official from the so-called “Axis of Resistance” — led by Iran and made up of Syrian officials, Iraqi Shiite militias, Hezbollah and other groups — said Hezbollah fighters were “on high alert to confront any possible Israeli aggression.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the group’s military activities with the media.The Lebanese military said the situation on its side of the border is “calm and stable,” adding that army units in the area were conducting their usual missions in coordination with UN peacekeepers. “The army command is ready to confront any emergency,” it said.Malene Jensen, spokeswoman for the UN force in Lebanon, said the situation “remains calm.”Although Israel believes Hezbollah is in no rush to go to war, the army has been preparing for renewed hostilities for some time. Last year, it held a large-scale drill simulating war with Hezbollah. It also has reinforced a massive border wall and stepped up foot patrols on the border.Under the UN resolution that ended the 2006 war, Hezbollah is barred from operating in southern Lebanon. Israel has long accused it of violating the resolution.Netanyahu said he holds the Lebanese government responsible for Hezbollah’s actions.At the UN, Israel Ambassador Danny Danon said he urged Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to “condemn Hezbollah’s violations” and called for the Security Council to “condemn this terrorist threat.”US National Security Adviser John Bolton said the US “strongly supports Israel’s efforts to defend its sovereignty” and urged “Iran and all of its agents to stop their regional aggression.”Israeli officials believe Hezbollah has long been preparing for an operation to shift the battlefield to Israeli territory. Conricus said the tunnels were meant to be a “surprise component” of that plan.The 2006 war began with a cross-border raid in which Hezbollah abducted two Israeli soldiers whose remains were returned two years later in a prisoner exchange. Hezbollah’s leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, on several occasions has vowed to storm northern Israel.The border has been relatively quiet, but the sides have come into conflict in Syria, where Israel has carried out scores of airstrikes purportedly meant to prevent Iranian arms from reaching Hezbollah.Netanyahu recently has faced a major crisis in his governing coalition over the handling of a cease-fire with Gaza militants. Facing heavy criticism over the cease-fire, he cited Israel’s “complex” security situation, in what was seen as a reference to the north.The operation also came days after Israeli police recommended indicting Netanyahu in a corruption case. The timing of the operation did not appear to be linked to his legal woes, given the months of preparations involved. Eisenkot, the military chief, said the Israeli Cabinet authorized the operation weeks ago, on Nov. 7.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan speaks during an interview with Reuters at an event to promote the start of London Tech Week, in London, Britain, 10 June 2019. Photo: ReutersUS president Donald Trump once again criticised London mayor Sadiq Khan on Saturday, saying he is a “disaster” and will “only get worse” after three people were slain in the city in less than 20 hours.Trump retweeted a tweet by the right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins who called London “stab city” and said “this is Khan’s Londonistan,” a phrase used to describe the city’s failure to tackle Muslim extremists.”LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster – will only get worse!” Trump said on Twitter.Trump called Khan, a Muslim of Pakistani heritage, a “stone-cold loser” earlier this month after the mayor criticised the British government for inviting Trump for a state visit and compared him to 20th century fascists.Trump’s feud with Khan dates back several years. Khan has criticised Trump’s effort to ban travellers from Muslim countries, while the president has castigated the mayor for his handling of a 2017 terrorist attack on the London bridge that killed 11 people.
Share David Dermer/APHouston Astros’ George Springer (4) and teammates celebrate after defeating the Cleveland Indians in Game 3 of a baseball American League Division Series, Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/David Dermer)When the challenge arose in August, the Houston Astros responded like champions.They’re doing it again in October.Two months ago, last year’s World Series winners hit one of those predictable lulls that every team encounters during the dog days of a season. Maybe feeling a bit overconfident and invincible, the Astros were caught atop the AL West by the Oakland Athletics, a scrappy squad that sneaked up on everyone in 2018.But just when it appeared the Astros might be in some trouble, they switched on their after-burners. After Aug. 18, Houston went 29-10 to finish with 103 wins.“There is an extra gear that our guys have,” explained manager A.J. Hinch. “And once we hit the postseason, it looks like, as of right now, our guys really, really turned it on.”Showing no weaknesses while exposing Cleveland’s flaws at every opportunity, the Astros took another step toward defending their crown Monday by finishing off a surprisingly easy three-game AL Division Series sweep with an 11-3 blowout of the Indians, who were overmatched on the mound, at the plate and in the field.Houston outscored Cleveland 21-6. The Astros outhit the Indians .327 to .144 and banged out eight homers with making an error.“They beat us in every area of the game,” said Indians reliever Trevor Bauer, whose two throwing errors in the seventh inning of Game 3 propelled Houston’s convincing clincher. “They’re tough, man. They keep coming. We didn’t play our best. I’m not sure if they played their best either, but they played much better than we did. And so, the better team won.”The Astros, who have some time to relax and get ready for the Boston-New York series survivor in the ALCS, can win in so many different ways.They have one of baseball’s best rotations, anchored by Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole, a devastating 1-2 pitching punch that staggered the Indians in Houston. The Astros can play long ball, small ball and any kind of ball needed with a balanced lineup loaded with contact hitters.Sure, they’ve got All-Stars in Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman, but the Astros are a selfless group that plays as one.“We have the most complete team in baseball,” Verlander said between puffs on a cigar as his teammates showered each other with champagne in the clubhouse. “I’ve been part of really special teams, but the drive to win here trumps everything else. Everybody is OK with whoever is the hero.”It was Verlander in Game 1, Marwin Gonzalez in Game 2, and George Springer was among a number of deserving candidates with two homers in Game 3.Springer has found his groove at just the right time. The 2017 World Series MVP was sidelined by a sprained left thumb that landed him on the disabled list in August. He struggled after returning and connected on just three homers over the final six weeks of the regular season.The postseason is his playground.Springer hit three homers in the final two ALDS game, giving him a franchise record 10 postseason homers.“I said this to our team in there — special teams do special things in October,” Hinch said. “And I believe that about players. George is one of them. We’ve seen him come up as an uber-prospect, produce at an uncanny level, hit the lowest of the lows in the World Series and then be the World Series MVP.“I don’t think this should surprise anyone. He’s a really special player.”On a really special team.Before his team was pushed aside by the Astros, Indians manager Terry Francona sat at his office desk and described what makes them so good.“Well, besides the talent, because they are obviously really talented, I do think they do a really good job of playing until the game’s over,” he said. “Like it’s been noticeable for a while. You know some times, like I think I said this the other day, when you beat them, sometimes they just run out of time.“You gotta have talent, but when you have talent and you play the game the right way, so that’s why they have a lot of ways to come at you.”Oddly, the Astros seem to get overlooked, lost deep in the heart of Texas amid the endless debate about whether the Yankees or Red Sox are the league’s best.Houston makes its case on the field.“That’s a big-time rivalry and I understand that,” Springer said, adding the Astros aren’t craving publicity. “But it’s all about us and our task at hand. That’s all we focus on. We’re going to sit back and watch and see what happens.”While he watched his young teammates party after another postseason triumph, Verlander looked like a proud father. He arrived last season to help the Astros get over the hump, and now that they have, there’s no going backward.“At no point this season was there any complacency with this team,” he said. “If I had been traded here after they won the World Series, instead of before it last year, I would have assumed this was a young and hungry team when I walked in the clubhouse.“No one takes anything for granted here. That’s the DNA of the guys in this clubhouse. This team has a propensity to do big things in big spots.”
How much do you know about keeping your data and information safe?A new study from Pew Research Center finds that even amid high profile hacks on businesses and institutions that affect millions, many Americans don’t have a comprehensive understanding about what precautions need to be taken to prevent cybersecurity breaches. And perhaps it is unsurprising, but Pew says that “those with higher levels of education and younger internet users are more likely to answer cybersecurity questions correctly.”Of the 1,055 people polled in an online survey in June 2016, 75 percent of adults were able to select the strongest password — no words from the dictionary and is a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols — from a list of four options. And 73 percent know that even if a public Wi-Fi network is password protected, you still should probably wait to pay off your credit card at home instead of in line for a coffee.Related: The Worst Hacks of 2017 — So FarMeanwhile, 54 percent of internet users could ID an example of a phishing attack, and 52 percent were correct in saying that that if you turn off your phone’s GPS function, the device can still be tracked.When it came to questions around encryption, the number of those who got the answers right decreased again. Forty-six percent accurately answered that email is not encrypted by default and that Wi-Fi traffic isn’t encrypted by default on every wireless router.Related: 4 Easy Ways to Protect Your Company From a Cyber AttackAdditionally, 39 percent knew that internet service providers have access to their customers search history even if they are in private browsing mode. And while two-factor authentication is often a first step in preventing breaches, only 10 percent of adults were able to choose the one example of a multi-factor authentication process.For the full survey results, you can head over to the Pew site and test your own knowledge with an interactive quiz that the center has made to accompany the results of the study.
