    TAMPA — Sunday marked the first game of spring training for the Yankees, as well as their first experience playing with the redesigned baseball MLB is using this season that many believed won’t travel as far as in recent seasons. Very early results were mixed. There were some balls hit during batting practice, Aaron Judge said, that didn’t have as much distance on them as he and his teammates expected. But in the game, a 6-4, seven-inning loss to the Blue Jays at George M. Steinbrenner Field, Judge hit one to deep center that surprised him by how close it came to being a homer. “It went a little further than I thought,’’ he said of the fourth-inning shot. “I kind of got underneath it. I knew I missed it. But I saw it was near the track and thought maybe someone snuck in an old baseball for me.” Overall,...

    Jay Bruce made it to the New York Yankees, 3 1/2 years later than he first thought. Bruce had just reached a Philadelphia hotel room after a train ride that followed a hitless afternoon in the New York Mets’ loss to Texas at Citi Field on Aug. 9, 2017. He was with his family and hearing talk he was about to be dealt to the Yankees. Then that swap fell through and he was sent to Cleveland for minor league pitcher Ryder Ryan. “I wanted to go somewhere I had an opportunity to win a World Series,” he recalled. Two weeks later, the Indians started a winning streak that extended for an American League-record 22 games. “So I was extremely happy being in Cleveland. I would have been extremely happy being in New York,” Bruce said Friday at spring training in Tampa, Florida. “That’s why I absolutely picked the Yankees...
    Social media in Queensland, Australia lit up on Thursday night, matching the flashing night sky as users posted short videos of what experts later said was debris from a Chinese rocket burning up as it re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere. “I thought it was a meteorite at first, but later as it split, my mate and I began thinking it was space junk,” said Jasper Nash, who filmed one of the videos circulating on social media. “It was very fascinating.” Professor Jonti Horner of the University of Southern Queensland’s Centre for Astrophysics said the light show came from the re-entry of a Chinese rocket launched in November 2019, carrying a satellite into orbit. Others with less expert knowledge were at first spooked by the display. “I initially thought it was something other than space debris,” said Jack Robins, another observer who took to social media to post video. “To be...

    (Reuters) - As proprietor of the landmark City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco, Lawrence Ferlinghetti was a Beat Generation poet, a publisher and a free-speech advocate. Following are quotes from Ferlinghetti, who died on Monday at the age of 101. "I keep telling people I wasn't a member of the original Beat Generation. I was sort of the guy tending the store." - Los Angeles Times interview in 2005 "In Plato's Republic, poets were considered subversive, a danger to the republic. I kind of relish that role.

    Astronomers might need to adjust their expectations for black holes. According to the New York Times, an international research team has determined that Cygnus X-1, one of the first discovered black holes, is considerably more massive than once thought. The binary-system based hole was originally pegged at ‘just’ 15 solar masses, but is now believed to be 21 solar masses. That may not sound like much when supermassive black holes are equivalent to millions or even billions of solar masses, but it’s enough to throw off existing models. A black hole that massive can’t have formed in the Milky Way based on past estimates of lost stellar mass — scientists might need to rethink their calculations for those losses. It’s no longer all that certain how Cygnus-X1 became a black hole. It’s not a complete shock. Teams using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) have generally observed black holes...
    New observations from first black hole ever detected They have led astronomers to question what they know about the most mysterious objects in the Universe. Published in the journal Science, the research shows that the system known as Cygnus X-1 contains the stellar-mass black hole most massive ever detected without the use of gravitational waves. Cygnus X-1 is one of the closest black holes to Earth. It was discovered in 1964 when a pair of Geiger counters were transported aboard a suborbital rocket launched from New Mexico. The object was the focus of a famous scientific bet between physicists Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne, with Hawking betting in 1974 that it was not a black hole. Hawking granted the bet in 1990. In this latest work, an international team of astronomers used the Very Long Baseline Array, a radio telescope the size of a continent made up of 10 dishes...
    Fox News’ Chris Wallace praised President Joe Biden for “not getting pushed around by the left” on issues like student loan forgiveness, saying he was “impressed” by his performance at a town hall this week. Wallace made the comments on America’s Newsroom, in response to anchor Bill Hemmer’s question about how he thought Biden’s first month in office was going. “How would you size up the first month of the Biden presidency, the good and the bad?” asked Hemmer. “What do you think about?” Wallace replied that he thought it had been “surprisingly good” how “disciplined” Biden had been, noting his occasional penchant for verbal gaffes and meandering speeches seemed to be much improved lately. “He has been very focused and disciplined in terms of his activities and messages and he really has kept to the idea that Covid, the public health aspect and economic aspect, is job one,” said Wallace. “One thing that I was impressed by in...
    ELIZABETH, Pa. (KDKA) – A local police chief is sharing his experience for the first time after testing positive for COVID-19. He recently got back to work after being out for over a month.

    A supermassive black hole 7,200 light years from the Earth is aroud 50% larger than originally suspected, a new study has revealed. Named Cygnus-X-1, it was the first black hole confirmed by astronomers, after first being discovered in 1964 when two Geiger counters were sent to space on a rocket. Its final confirmation as a black hole in 1990 lost legendary British physicist Sir Stephen Hawking a bet he made with Professor Kip Thorne over its status. Thanks to a combination of new techniques and more advanced telescopes, including the continent sized Very Long Baseline Array, astronomers have been able to determine that the stellar phenomenon is 21 times the mass of the Sun.   Astronomers from Curtin University in Australia say this is the record for a black hole that has been directly observed as a result of matter falling into it. The new measurements also found it was 20% further...

    (CNN)A wide array of Senate Republicans harshly criticized former President Donald Trump's defense team on the opening day of his second impeachment trial, arguing that Trump attorney Bruce Castor had delivered a rambling and unfocused argument in making the case that the proceedings are unconstitutional."I thought the President's lawyer, the first lawyer, just rambled on and on and on," John Cornyn of Texas, a member of Senate GOP leadership, said of Castor, adding that the lawyer "didn't really address the constitutional argument. Finally the second lawyer got around to it, and, I thought, did an effective job."Trump unhappy with his impeachment attorneys performance, sources sayCastor opened Trump's defense with a meandering presentation and warned that a second impeachment trial in 13 months would "open the floodgates" to future impeachments, even making the rhetorically unfounded suggestion that former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder could be impeached.Prominent Republicans argued on Tuesday...

    Getty Brad Stevens head coach of the Boston Celtics takes questions from reporters during Celtics Media Day. As Kemba Walker’s slump grows increasingly concerning, rookie guard Peyton Pritchard continues to be a bright spot for the Boston Celtics. In his second game back from injury, the former Oregon standout headed a second-half charge against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. While the Cs ultimately failed to capture the “W”, marking their fourth loss over their last six games, Pritchard helped claw his team back into contention as Boston closed the third quarter on a 9-0 run. “He helped us get back in the game in the late third (quarter), hit some big shots,” head coach Brad Stevens said of Pritchard. “He gave us a chance. Payton was a good reason why we got back in. But it was (his) defense that got him jump started. I thought he was...

    Astronomers have detected what they believe to be one of the earliest instances of "galactic cannibalism" — when one galaxy consumes one of its smaller neighbors — in an ultrafaint dwarf galaxy called Tucana II. The findings stem from the discovery of an ancient dark matter halo, located in a galaxy 163,000 light years from Earth.  Tucana II is just one of dozens of dwarf galaxies surrounding the Milky Way. They are thought to be artifacts left over from the first galaxies in the universe — and Tucana II is among the most primitive of them.  In a new study, published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy, astrophysicists report detecting nine previously unknown stars at the edge of Tucana II, using the SkyMapper Telescope in Australia and the Magellan Telescopes in Chile. The stars are shockingly far away from its center but remain in the small galaxy's gravitational pull.  The...
    The Los Angeles Rams reportedly jumped in front of the Carolina Panthers to land Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions. On Saturday, the Los Angeles Rams were the winners of the Matthew Stafford sweepstakes after agreeing to trade future first-round picks, a third-rounder and quarterback Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions. After the deal became official, the identities of other prospective teams that were in the running for Stafford surfaced, including the Washington Football Team and Indianapolis Colts. As it turns out, no team was closer to landing Stafford than the Carolina Panthers. According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the Panthers were about to receive Stafford’s medical records from the Lions on Saturday. But then, the Rams entered the sweepstakes with their offer and won out. Another wrinkle in the Matthew Stafford trade: At one point on Saturday, the #Lions and #Panthers were so close that Carolina was in...
    Was the United States Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, prepared for operating under pandemic conditions? Did we have a plan? The answer to the first question is, “we thought we were.” The answer to the second is a simple yes. Do the answers matter at this point? The rest of the world was not prepared. Law enforcement in general is an exercise of immediate crisis response and also planning for a potential one. The SARS virus emergence in 2003 and the threat the H1N1 in 2009 were opportunities the Border Patrol took advantage of to develop pandemic plans on a local level. Table-top exercises with medical professionals, state health officials, and local community leaders led us to believe we were prepared. In the words of boxing champion Mike Tyson, “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” COVID-19 was our punch in...

    Danish scientists believe the Kent variant of coronavirus is less infectious than previously thought.  Analysis at the State Serum Institute in Copenhagen found the mutant strain, scientifically known as B.1.1.7, is 36 per cent more infectious than previous variants. This number is significantly lower than the 70 per cent figure first cited by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, as well as the latest UK estimates, which suggest the Kent strain is around 56 per cent more infectious. However, the researchers caution estimating transmissibility is a tricky science, and its true increased infectivity could be between 20 and 50 per cent.   Scroll down for video  Analysis at the State Serum Institute in Copenhagen found the mutant, scientifically known as B.1.1.7, is 36 per cent more infectious than older strains  'In our calculations, we have found that the contact number for the British variant is 1.36 times higher than the other variants,' Tyra...

    The Rangers didn’t get off to the kind of start they wanted to for the second time in the past three games.

Chris Kreider, discombobulated, then took a tripping penalty at 1:02. It was the second time this season the Rangers were penalized within a game’s first two minutes. Blueshirts defenseman Jack Johnson was called for holding 1:49 into the season-opening 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Thursday. “The real story was the start of the game for us,” head coach David Quinn said on a Zoom call after the loss, which dropped the Rangers to 1-2. “I thought we started playing the last seven or eight minutes of the first.

    Israels coronavirus czar said a single dose of Pfizers vaccine might be less effective than the drugmaker indicated. Nachman Ash, considered the Israeli "Dr. Anthony Fauci," told Army Radio, protection offered by the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine was "less effective than we had thought." "Many people have been infected between the first and second injections of the vaccine," Ash said, per the New York Post. Pfizer has said trials showed the vaccine was roughly 52% effective around 12 days after receiving the first shot, the BBC reported. That level of protection rises to 95% about two weeks after the second dose. Ash said the protective effect appeared "lower than [the data] presented by Pfizer." More than 2 million Israelis had received the first dose of the vaccine. During a talk among Health Ministry officials Tuesday, Ash also said it was not certain the vaccine can protect against mutated...

The New Horizons mission, which yielded the first close-up photos of Pluto, provided enough data for scientists to make the determination that it's likely the number of galaxies is in the hundreds of billions, rather than 2 trillion, as initially believed.  "It's an important number to know — how many galaxies are there?" the study's lead author, Marc Postman, said in a statement. "We simply don't see the light from 2 trillion galaxies." This artist’s illustration shows NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft in the outer solar system. In the background lies the Sun and a glowing band representing zodiacal light, caused by sunlight reflecting off of dust. By traveling beyond the inner solar system and its accompanying light pollution, New Horizons was able to answer the question: How dark...
    Ohio State entered the game at No. 15 Rutgers without its senior leader in point guard C.J. Walker and 0-3 on the road in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes left with a win, but another injury. Duane Washington Jr. scored 17 points and Justice Sueing addded 12 points, 10 rebounds and five assists as Ohio State closed the first half with a big run to beat Rutgers 79-68 on Saturday. "Just losing him as a leader and a ball handler," Sueing said of Walker’s absence. "As far as me handling the ball, coach (Chris Holtmann) trusts me enough to be a ball handler, to make those decisions as well and other guys need to step up, too, and I thought we did a good job of adjusting." The Buckeyes (9-3, 3-3 Big Ten) used a 22-4 burst to take a 42-30 lead at halftime in sending Rutgers (7-4, 3-4) to...
    Twice since the last time they got it right, the Giants got it wrong. Very wrong. This time, with Joe Judge as their head coach, it has felt right. For the first time since 2004 — when Tom Coughlin was hired and went on to coach 12 seasons, putting two Lombardi trophies inside the glass-enclosed trophy case in the lobby of the Giants training facility — it feels like ownership has chosen the right head coach. The fact that Judge isn’t preparing the Giants for one of the six playoff games scheduled for this weekend, instead finishing 6-10 and out of the postseason for the fourth consecutive season and eighth in the past nine might not back that up. But this feels different from the previous two post-Coughlin hires. Ben McAdoo, even when he took the Giants to the playoffs in his first season (2016) with Coughlin’s players, never felt...
    There was no formal announcement by the Giants or co-owner John Mara on Wednesday relaying that Dave Gettleman is coming back as general manager. Asked about this, Mara smiled and said, "Well, he is coming back, if you want a formal announcement about that.’’ It clearly was not something weighing on Mara’s mind, whether he needed to move on from Gettleman. The reason for the return is not based wholly on the performance of the team – the Giants this season finished 6-10 and, once again, did not make the playoffs – but rather on the way Gettleman and Joe Judge, the first-year head coach, worked as allies in their first year together.

    So much for the ridiculous idea that only the Giants and their fans were outraged by the Eagles coaching to lose. Doug Pederson has a problem in his own locker room, as confirmed by running back Miles Sanders on SportsRadio 94 WIP in Philadelphia. “Man, if I’m being honest, nobody liked the decision. Nobody,” Sanders said. “That’s all I can say really. I don’t know who was the main person behind that decision. All I know is a lot of people on the team was confused.” The Eagles pulled starting quarterback Jalen Hurts in favor of bumbling third-stringer Nate Sudfeld at the start of the fourth quarter, facing a three-point deficit. A sulking Carson Wentz was inactive. Washington’s win over the Eagles clinched the NFC East title and eliminated the Giants from playoff contention. Pederson has been on blast from former NFL players, including Eagles great Seth Joyner, and most...
    The Browns needed two yards to clinch their first playoff berth since 2002. Baker Mayfield headed to the sideline during a Steelers timeout, and he first heard the final play call from his backup, Case Keenum. He thought it was a joke. Cleveland has the best running back duo in the league with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. But Mayfield thought he’d heard that coach Kevin Stefanski wanted the Browns QB to run for the first down himself. “I thought he was joking at first because I didn’t hear it from Kevin,” Mayfield told reporters after the game.  But then Stefanski said the play again, and Mayfield heard him this time. The ball would indeed go to Mayfield, who had fumbled three times (losing two) in Week 16, adding to his initial disbelief. Mayfield took a shotgun snap and took off running to his right behind a convoy of...
    The location of the hacking itself may have played a role as well. Investigators are determining whether or not the hack breached SolarWinds’ offices in eastern European countries like Belarus, the Czech Republic and Poland. Engineers there had wide access to the Orion network software compromised in the hack, and Russia would have more familiarity with the region. The Times also claims that SolarWinds was slow to address security, taking on security execs in 2017 in response to EU privacy law and reportedly ignoring adviser Ian Thorton-Trump’s calls for “more proactive” internal safeguards. Thorton-Trump left the company in frustration with the unresponsiveness to his concerns. SolarWinds has declined to comment on questions about its security, instead reiterating that it was the target of a “highly sophisticated, complex and targeted cyberattack.” The full extent of the damage isn’t certain, although it’s already clear that the culprits accessed Microsoft source code and...

    ROSEMOUNT — Contrasting styles and contrasting experience made Monday’s non-league girls game between Valley and Clay a tight one throughout. Behind a pair of 27-point halves, the Lady Indians managed a 54-46 road win over the Lady Panthers to improve to 2-4. The win was Valley’s first away-from-Lucasville triumph of the 2020-21 season, and the first under first-year coach Tyson Phillips. As for the contrast in styles between Phillips’ Lady Indians and coach Scott Artis’ Lady Panthers, those figures came way of both teams’ scoring efforts. While Valley thrived by connecting on field goals of the two-point variety, Clay kept its guests within arm’s reach thanks to 10-made three-pointers. Each of the Lady Indians’ 21 made field goals were two-point tries, while their other 12 points came way of the charity stripe, meaning Valley made no threes but still managed to walk away with a near double-digit victory. “Coming into...
    One of the lone lighthearted moments of the Knicks’ disappointing home opener against the Sixers on Saturday was Reggie Bullock’s wardrobe malfunction. With the Knicks wearing for the first time their new city-edition jerseys, the starting shooting guard had no clue he was provided a defective jersey. On the front was his correct number, 25. However, the back had Mitchell Robinson’s number, 23. Bullock had no idea as social media buzzed throughout the first quarter. “I definitely found out later,” Bullock said after Tuesday’s shootaround in Cleveland. “Our jerseys (in our locker) are not turned around. (The front) is facing us in the locker room. So it was normal routine, going in the locker room and putting my jersey on. “If I would’ve noticed it, I definitely wouldn’t have put the jersey on.

    Melania Trump 'should have thought twice' before letting her former best friend and advisor take the fall over Trump's expensive inauguration, an insider close to the White House has told DailyMail.com.  They added: 'Three years later it's all come full circle, and now Stephanie is the one with the last laugh - and the last word.' Stephanie Winston Wolkoff served as an informal, unpaid advisor to her close friend Melania in the East Wing of the White House until February 2018 when she left the position amid controversy. Reports said she was ousted because Trump and Melania were angry over the spending for the January 2017 inauguration celebration but Wolkoff has long insisted that she wasn't fired, yet simply 'thrown under the bus'.  In January, Trump's inaugural committee was sued over allegations it had spent more than $1 million to book a ballroom at the Trump International Hotel for his...

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunner Soulscare considers Fred to be “very sensible” in the second half against Paris Saint-Germain.

    Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill might still be riding the high of his incredible game Sunday against the Buccaneers. The speedster turned in a historic performance, catching 12 passes from Patrick Mahomes for 261 receiving yards and three touchdowns of 75, 44 and 20 yards, respectively. Moreover, he had 203 receiving yards in the first quarter, accounting for 83 percent of Mahomes’ passing totals in the period.

    Though the first case of the coronavirus wasn’t identified in the U.S. until January, a new study suggests that the novel disease was present earlier in the country than first thought.  A study published Monday in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases conducted by researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that the novel virus was present in the United States as early as mid-December 2019.  The conclusion is based on blood donations from the Red Cross from nine states, including Washington, Oregon, California, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Rhode Island and Wisconsin.

By March, when testing ended, almost a third of the patients had antibodies. Researchers called it “an unexpected very early circulation of coronavirus”. They said the finding “clarifies the onset and spread” of the pandemic and may “reshape” its history.

    By Giselda Vagnoni ROME (Reuters) - The new coronavirus was circulating in Italy since September 2019, a study by the National Cancer Institute (INT) of the Italian city of Milan shows, signaling that COVID-19 might have spread beyond China earlier than previously thought. The World Health Organization has said the new coronavirus and COVID-19, the respiratory disease it causes, were unknown before the outbreak was first reported in Wuhan, in central China, in December. Italy's first COVID-19 patient was detected on Feb. 21 in a little town near Milan, in the northern region of Lombardy. But the Italian researchers' findings, published by the INT's scientific magazine Tumori Journal, show that 11,6% of 959 healthy volunteers enrolled in a lung cancer screening trial between September 2019 and March 2020, had developed coronavirus antibodies well before February. A further specific SARS-CoV-2 antibodies test was carried out by the University of Siena for...

    PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Freshman Jayden de Laura has been named the starting quarterback for Washington State when the Cougars open their season at Oregon State on Saturday, first-year coach Nick Rolovich said. “Jayden’s going to take the first snap for us at Oregon State,” Rolovich said Monday evening during a Zoom call with reporters.

De Laura is thought to be the first true freshman quarterback to start for the Cougars in a season opener.
