    KAZUHIRO NOGI/AFP via Getty Images The Tokyo Olympics says athletes should keep a two-meter distance from other participants and avoid hugs, handshakes, and high-fives at the 2021 Summer Games. Organizers also say they're supplying athletes with 150,000 free condoms, per the SCMP. People are mocking the decision, saying it sends mixed messages during the pandemic. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The athletes set to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games — which were postponed to the summer of 2021 due to the pandemic — are getting some mixed messages. On one hand, the International Olympic Committee is telling athletes to "avoid unnecessary forms of physical contact" like hugs, high-fives, and handshakes, and to keep a two-meter distance from other athletes during the Games to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus, according to a 33-page playbook released this week.  On the other hand, athletes are being...

    LeBron James asserts he is the King During their last game, LeBron had a terrible performance. He shot a miserable 6-16 from the field and 2-7 from three against the Warriors, and this was one of the main reasons the Lakers lost. So coming into tonight’s game, he knew that not only were the stakes higher, but he also needed redemption. The Clippers had taken over their #1 spot in the West, so the Lakers had to maintain the pressure. With this in mind, LeBron went full throttle on offense tonight, and the Bucks had no way to stop him. They had their best defender, Jrue Holiday, on him, but even he was rendered useless by the King. LeBron had a massive 34 points display while shooting 13-25 from the field, and 6-10 from the three-point line. He also had six rebounds and eight assists, as he...

Yes, the Chiefs took the lead on a late TD and relied on a missed Younghoe Koo field goal to seal the win but their 17-14 win was less about whether or not it was close and more about a dominant team who was just playing with a team they knew they were going to beat from the start. © Provided by The Comeback Sure, there were some scares.

    A birdwatcher has stumbled across a hoard of 2,000-year-old Celtic gold coins worth £800,000 that date back to the time Boudicca was at war with the Romans. The keen metal detectorist, who has not been named, spotted a glint of gold while looking at a buzzard in a recently ploughed field in eastern England.  Having rubbed off the mud to reveal a 2,000-year-old gold stater coin, he dashed home to pick up his metal detector and returned to carry on searching. After several hours, and to his utter disbelief, he unearthed about 1,300 coins, all dating to circa 40-50AD.  Experts believe each coin could be worth up to £650, putting the value of the hoard at £845,000. The lucky finder says he saw a 'cascade' of golden coins fall from an urn he unearthed from a recently-ploughed field in eastern England  It comfortably surpasses the previous record Celtic hoard...

    A 55-yard field goal is nothing for Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. Tucker was 23-of-24 on the year, and a 55-yarder that would pose a significant challenge to most NFL kicker was a piece of cake for the best in the game. JUSTIN TUCKER. FROM 55 YARDS OUT. AUTOMATIC. #RavensFlock #BALvsCLE pic.twitter.com/MbYBUbu8bw — NFL (@NFL) December 15, 2020 He’s automatic from anywhere with 60 yards. Hell, we like his chances from 65. Despite Baker Mayfield’s heroics — and Lamar Jackson’s untimely absence due to so-called cramps — the Ravens were victorious in Cleveland, winning the game of the year so far and adding a significant blow to the Browns AFC North title hopes. Somewhere, Pittsburgh Steelers fans are thanking their hidden Tucker shrine, as the Browns loss helps avoid a catastrophe…for now.  
    The referees of this game better be thanking Kevin Stefanski after the game.  Kevin Stefanski has done his part to turn the Cleveland Browns around. More than that, he’s been a blessing in disguise for the club that hasn’t felt like they’ve had a chance to win in quite a long time. One can see how much he cares for his team and players. No more was that relevant when he risked a challenge flag to keep a drive alive in.a crucial game. As the Browns were getting ready to call another play, one could see there were more than 11 Baltimore Ravens defenders on the field. In fact, there were more than just your average man stuck somewhere in the mix. Instead, there were 15 men on the field. The referees though were too busy twiddling their thumbs and missed the call. Instead of taking the fourth down play call,...
    The Voyager probes are still contributing to science over 40 years later and billions of miles from home. Researchers have detected a new form of cosmic ray electron burst using instruments aboard Voyager 1 and 2. Coronal mass ejections from the Sun created shockwaves that first manifested as near-light-speed electron waves, followed by plasma waves and then the shockwaves themselves. The electrons appear to have been propelled after reflecting off a strong magnetic field at the edge of the shockwave, with the wave motion and interstellar magnetic field lines respectively accelerating and guiding the electrons. The concept isn’t new (it happens with solar winds), but scientists haven’t seen interstellar shockwaves in a new medium like this.

    Cutting down the competition took on a whole new meaning on Thursday night when a Mississippi community college football team tried to bring an actual chainsaw onto the football field. As the players were about to take the field Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College defensive tackle Brian Merritt revved up a chainsaw.

    A Canadian farmer trimmed his field into the shape of a giant penis that can be seen on Google Maps, which collects imagery with satellites more than 22,000 miles above the surface. Prince Edward Island resident Jamie Rix originally cut his soybeans into a crop circle about a year and a half ago.  After he added a straight line so he could drive directly down the field, a friend dared him to turn it into 'a giant Johnson.' 'I said, 'Why not,'' Rix told the CBC. ''Challenge accepted,' and away I went.' The 800-foot phallus is something of a protest against government inaction, Rix added, which is why it points toward Ottawa, Canada's capital.

    Notre Dame President John Jenkins condemned the actions of Notre Dame students in a Sunday statement, though video shows him applauding as students rush onto the football field to celebrate their victory. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish defeated Clemson 47-40 Saturday night, prompting “thousands” of students to storm the field and celebrate the victory, according to the Chicago Tribune. Many of the students who rushed the field were not wearing masks or had their masks pulled down, the publication reported, and students reportedly attended parties following the celebratory field rush.

    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse Another week, another set of unthinkably bad officiating decisions in the NFL NFL officials are notoriously bad at explaining themselves. Unlike the NBA, which often releases a two-minute report or at least some sort of defense for those who dare to wear the black-and-white stripes on a weekly basis, the NFL leaves just about every call up to interpretation, and expects the head official to explain themselves postgame. It’s similar to MLB, but with more controversial decisions up for debate. In baseball, bad decisions by umpires can be overturned, minus the obvious strike zone. The NFL tried something of this merit last season with the pass interference review system, but officials never went against their original word, making the coaches’ challenge obsolete. The one surefire way to at the very least make things right after the fact is a...
    Once upon a time in October baseball, publications including SN would designate players as the “Hero” and “Goat” of World Series games. That tradition is mostly gone now, but the final play of Saturday’s outrageously entertaining Game 4 between the Dodgers and Rays had so many heroes and goats that it’s worth reviving the custom for a night. To appreciate just how many players need to be singled out on this play, take a look at it first. This sequence gave Tampa Bay an 8-7 victory that evened the 2020 Fall Classic at two games apiece. Got all that? Good. Time now to separate the heroes from the goats: Hero: Brett Phillips All praise to Phillips, who shook off two questionable strike calls that put him in a hole against Kenley Jansen and produced the biggest hit of his career, a looping single to shallow center field that turned into a play...

Head coach Jon Gruden told reporters that right tackle Trent Brown was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list and that the rest of his line mates were barred from team facilities. A least until Thursday. The reason? They were in contact with Brown. Brown’s placement on the list doesn’t necessarily mean that he caught COVID-19. It does mean the team believes he’s been exposed to the coronavirus and placed in quarantine. “I guess they were around Trent," Gruden told reporters on a video conference. “I can't get into things any more than...
    A professor of neuroscience at the University of Surrey claims to have solved the long-standing mystery of what creates human consciousness.   According to Dr Johnjoe McFadden, the electromagnetic field produced by the brain's neurons is what produces this uniquely human trait.  Vast amounts of research has gone into deciphering why humans have awareness of one's own existence, whereas other animals do not.  Previous attempts to understand this have involved the spiritual and supernatural, including suggesting it comes from a soul.

Shortly after the former Alabama quarterback made his NFL debut for the Miami Dolphins late in their 24-0 victory over the winless Jets, Tagovailoa sat at the 15-yard line at Hard Rock Stadium and FaceTimed his parents, Diane and Galu. “The biggest thing that really stands out to me is just being able to make my parents proud,” Tagovailoa said after the game. “Whether that’s Tua as a football player, Tua as a person, Tua as a son, I think that’s what brings me the most joy is seeing how happy my parents get and then seeing how happy my family gets, as well, with who I am and also what I do.” Tagovailoa, the fifth overall pick in the 2020 draft, replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick with the game in hand...

    In August, the Weld County District Attorney's Office revealed that a grand jury "has accepted the investigation into the death of Jonelle Matthews," a twelve-year-old who vanished from her Greeley home in late 1984 — although her remains weren't found in a rural Weld County field until 2019. Attention immediately turned to Steven Pankey, who had been named a person of interest in the case by the Greeley Police Department. Pankey was a resident of Idaho, and a prominent one, having twice run for governor of that state, in 2014 and 2018. Now, the 69-year-old Pankey has been formally indicted on five counts related to Matthews' death: murder in the first degree after deliberation, murder in the first degree/felony murder, second-degree kidnapping and two crime of violence charges.Related Stories Jonelle Matthews Death With Bizarre Tie to Politician Goes to Grand Jury Ex-Denver DA Using Familial DNA to Heat Up Cold...

    A federal appeals court decided Wednesday to let stand a preliminary injunction barring the Trump administration from shutting down the census count early in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that stopping the Census Bureau’s count now “risks undermining” its mission. “Given the extraordinary importance of the census, it is imperative that the Bureau conduct the census in a manner that is most likely to produce a workable report in which the public can have confidence,” wrote Judge Johnnie B. Rawlinson, a Clinton appointee, for the majority. The coronavirus outbreak severely disrupted the census count this year. The bureau, which is part of the Department of Commerce, had to suspend field operations in March, and when they resumed it was unable to recruit enough temporary employees to work in the field.

Already trailing 7-0, the Browns apparently thought themselves in need of a spark. But the trickery immediately backfired, as punter Jamie Gillan was quickly caught and wound up fumbling the ball...
    (CNN)It's been over seven months since Super Bowl LIV, and the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs picked up right where they left off with a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans.However, this was far from a typical start to an NFL season. Interactive: What makes 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' so iconic The last time the NFL played, life in the US was still fairly normal. It was February 2 and the novel coronavirus was to the American public still mostly a mysterious disease overseas. There were less than a dozen confirmed cases in the United States. There are now more than 6.3 million reported cases in the US -- and as a result NFL stadiums either will have a smaller amount of fans than normal (like Kansas City did Thursday night) or will be empty as the season begins.There's also the league's shift on racial and social justice...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The field for the Kentucky Derby has been reduced to 16 after Finnick the Fierce was scratched on Friday. The one-eyed gelding may have an issue with his foot. He’s missing his right eye because of a congenital cataract. The Derby on Saturday will have its fewest starters since 2003, when Funny Cide beat 15 rivals. King Guillermo, owned by former major league All-Star Victor Martinez, was scratched because of a fever. Finnick the Fierce drew the No. 1 post position and was listed at 50-1 on the morning line. His absence means Max Player will break from the inside position. The field will be loaded into posts 2 through 17, with posts 1, 18, 19 and 20 left vacant in the new starting gate, according to Churchill Downs stewards. “Because he’s blind on the right eye, he carries himself a little funny and we always...
    Midfielder Weston McKennieque signed in exchange for $ 20 million from Schalke 04 Raúl Jiménez has not yet received the final call to go to Juventus in Serie A, as has the American Weston McKennie, a midfielder that he signed in exchange for 20 million dollars from Schalke 04. The American player who is about to turn 22 years old has played since 2017 in the Bundesliga and now he comes to one of the most powerful teams in Europe to fight for a place in the center of the field after Miralem Pjanic left for Barcelona. ????

    SAN FRANCISCO — When the San Francisco Giants recruited free agent Kevin Gausman to sign with the club during the offseason, they left out one key detail in their sales pitch. Gausman, who inked a one-year, $9.5 million deal with the club in December, couldn’t wait to join the Giants and make half of his starts in the pitcher’s oasis formally known as Oracle Park. No one bothered to tell him the outfield fences were coming in. “I didn’t know about that till I already signed,” Gausman said, “I was a little, like, ‘What the heck? Now they’re bringing in the fences?’ That’s another issue.” Triples Alley will remain, but it’s no longer a 421-foot poke out to right center field. The wall in the farthest reaches of the ballpark has been moved in a few yards to 415 feet, while the fence in dead center field now sits 391...
    NASA unveiled its plans to launch a gigantic balloon attached to a telescope for examining stars and gases in the cosmos. The project, called ASTHROS, short for Astrophysics Stratospheric Telescope for High Spectral Resolution Observations at Submillimeter-wavelengths, will use a football field-sized balloon to hoist a telescope into the stratosphere - about 130,000 feet into the air. NASA says that, when fully inflated, the balloons are 400 feet (150 meters) wide and tentatively plans to launch on December 2023 from Antarctica. The balloon (rendered) will ascend 130,000 feet from Earth's surface into the stratosphere and use a telescope to examine wavelengths not seen from Earth Once lifted into the stratosphere ASTHROS will observe wavelengths that aren't currently visible from the ground  in an effort to measure the motion and speed of gas around newly-formed stars.  NASA says that during flight, the mission will study four targets, including two star-forming regions...
    As US coronavirus cases surpass 4 million, medical experts urge to shut down and start over An Unknown Salmonella Outbreak has Infected Over 100 People in 15 States Nationals and Yankees throw 2020s first pitch, but the story remains far from the field WASHINGTON — If everyone would just grit their teeth, keep their eye on the ball and not the empty seats, Baseball would finally get to focus on baseball again. That was the plan, anyway. They played swelling music and raised a World Series championship flag in our nation’s capital Thursday, a heavy-handed metaphor about the political experience of pretending that everything is just fine.  But even from a seat in the press box — one of just a few dozen people who would witness the 2020 opening day live — I barely noticed. Without the context clues from a celebratory crowd, the whole thing felt like...
    Longtime Twins television broadcaster Dick Bremer will settle into his familiar seat at Target Field on Friday night with color commentator Justin Morneau by his side. One booth over, radio broadcasters Cory Provus and Dan Gladden will occupy the visiting TV area. The four will sit at an empty Target Field and call the first game of the Twins’ shortened season — a game taking place more than 400 miles away in Chicago. Bremer, entering his 37th season calling Twins games, can’t even remember the last time he didn’t attend the team’s Opening Day game. “I’ve only done it one way, actually seeing the game I’m asked to call,” Bremer said. “It’s not normal and it’s not ideal, but what about calendar year 2020 is normal or ideal? It’s just the way it is. I’m delighted that the games are going to be on, and I know how hungry fans...
    The Twins haven’t been shy about their expectations this season: They believe they are a World Series-caliber team. Manager Rocco Baldelli said it during his first team meeting with his group back in February. President of baseball Derek Falvey reaffirmed it on a Zoom call Sunday with reporters. And in between that, multiple players have laid out those same high expectations, too. But in order to get to that point, the Twins will need good health. And good health means players and staff members taking the necessary precautions away from the field to keep from contracting COVID-19. The Twins have had two presentations in the last few days led by Dr. Chris Camp, their team physician, on the specifics of COVID transmission, Falvey said. “Embedded in that was a lot of conversation about how you can protect yourself when you’re away from the ballpark, when you’re...
    The New York Yankees first official summer camp workout was hit with horror Saturday as pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was slammed in the head by a line drive off the bat of slugger Giancarlo Stanton.  The frightening scene took place just minutes into live batting practice and caused right-hander Tanaka, 31, to collapse on the ground for around five minutes before he was able to sit up.   Tanaka's hat flew off and he immediately collapsed to the ground, cradling his head at Yankee Stadium.  Trainers quickly ran to Tanaka and appeared to check his vision, as Stanton also fell to the ground and held his head in fear.   Scroll down for video  The horrifying moment that pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was smashed in the head New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka lies on the field after being hit by a ball off the bat of Yankees Giancarlo Stanton during a baseball a workout...
    BOSTON (AP) — Tucked under the center field seats at Fenway Park, down some stairs from Lansdowne Street in an area previously used as the visiting team’s batting cage, is a sports bar that is preparing to reopen from the coronavirus shutdown. Largely windowless and decorated with sepia photographs hung on dark wooden walls, the main source of light is the sunshine streaming in through a thick metal screen that reveals the true treasure of the location: a view of the Boston Red Sox field, from Green Monster to Pesky Pole, that could make the Bleacher Bar one of the few spots to watch a major league game in person this season. “It’s one of a kind. It really is,” said Joe Hicks, who runs the restaurant and three others in the area. “Kids and families, they get excited when they walk in here and they see how cool this...
    Vicky Kaushal, it seems, has become one of the go-to actors for biopics. His Udham Singh is ready for release which is directed by Shoojit Sircar and he will start shooting for another on Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw. Last year, the first look of the actor from the movie was released and we were stumped. He had completely blended with the character. Today on the Manekshaw’s death anniversary, the actor shared a short video on his social media platform revealing yet another look of his character from the film. Vicky Kaushal’s Sam Manekshaw Biopic to Go on Floors in 2021 Here too, you will be lost. Vicky’s face and demeanour have transformed so much that you wouldn’t find the actor in the character.

    Breaking News — Rome, June 22 . .- The Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, with a penalty goal, and the Argentine Paulo Dybala, with a left-footed shot to the squad, decided on Monday the 2-0 victory of Juventus against Bologna and strengthened the leadership of his team in Serie A. The youth team currently has a four-point advantage over Lazio, second, waiting for what the Roman team will do this Wednesday in the difficult field of Atalanta, fourth and that has the best forward in the tournament. After the Italy Cup final lost in the penalty shootout against Napoli, Juventus jumped into the field of Bolognese Renato Dall’Ara under pressure, forced to win so as not to offer Lazio the possibility of taking the lead from him. And technician Maurizio Sarri’s men imposed their technical superiority and sentenced the duel before the break thanks to a penalty scored by Cristiano, who...
    By PAT EATON-ROBB, AP Sports Writer CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — The tournament director for this week’s Travelers Championship had an idea. How about filling the natural amphitheater around the 18th green at TPC River Highlands with giant video boards showing fans watching the golf and cheering from home? “We started there. We wanted a Zoom wall with like 5,000 people,” Nathan Grube said. We looked at the renderings, the tech. Let’s just say, that was not feasible.” The tournament also considered setting up a VIP viewing area so that its top donors could come and watch from a safe social distance.

    Creative Commons/Flickr/Tony WebsterGov. Tim Walz and other DFL state leaders announced a package to address police reform and accountability in Minnesota on June 11. The package includes a number of proposed reforms, including but not limited to pairing of officers with a social worker (a “co-responder”), creating an independent investigation unit within the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for police-involved cases, and banning the use of all restraints or holds by law enforcement that purposely restrict a person’s airways or blood flow. According to Walz, the data show that these proposed reforms work in places around the country where they have already been in place. The package also calls for more accountability with the expansion of the Police Officers Standards and Training Board (POST) and the creation of a “Police-Community Relations Council.” Binnur Ozkececi-TanerWhat is not included in these proposals, or at least not yet clearly specified, is the creation of...
    Nine cows on a farm in Ireland were killed after they were struck by lightning during a heavy thunderstorm on Sunday. The incident happened Sunday afternoon as heavy thunderstorms bore through Dunlicky, County Clare, located on the west coast of Ireland. The country's weather service had issued a weather alert for large parts of Ireland as thunderstorms brought the threat of torrential downpours, hail, and flash flooding. LIGHTNING SAFETY: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW The Irish Examiner reported that a passer-by was driving along when the person spotted a number of animals with their "legs in the air."

    DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Spurred by a voice telling him, “If you build it, he will come,” the Iowa farmer played by Kevin Costner dutifully carved a baseball field out of his cornfield and then watched as Shoeless Joe Jackson and his Chicago White Sox teammates strode out of the stalks and onto the Field of Dreams. Major League Baseball is building another field a few hundred yards down a corn-lined path from the famous movie site in eastern Iowa but unlike the original, it’s unclear whether teams will show up for a game this time as the league and its players struggle to agree on plans for a coronavirus-shortened season. The owners of the Field of Dreams and residents of the farming community of Dyersville desperately hope so, saying that after months of isolation and loss caused by the virus, not only their area but the entire country could...
