Probe into tainted chicken continues

first_imgWashington D.C. — Officials from the Center for Disease Control say an antibiotic-resistant strain of salmonella is responsible for multiple reports of sickness in 29 states, including one Hoosier.The source of the raw chicken is unclear from lab tests, and no single common supplier has been identified. The strain has shown up in samples from a variety of raw chicken products including pet food, chicken pieces, ground pieces and whole chickens. The bacteria have also been found in live chickens. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is monitoring the outbreak, and the CDC’s investigation is ongoing.People sick with this strain have experienced stomach pain, cramps, diarrhea and fever 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria.Most people infected with salmonella, the most frequent cause of foodborne illness, get better in four to seven days without treatment. Symptoms can be worse for people with underlying medical conditions, children under 5 and people older than 65, as they typically have weaker immune systems.The CDC says the outbreak started in January, and more people have tested positive for this strain through September.The patients live in California, Washington, Texas, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Massachusetts and Maine.For more information from the CDC click here.last_img read more

The Bottom Line: Experience will decide Super Bowl winner

first_imgWhile everyone in the NFL is trying to hire the next (young, upstart) Sean McVay, the reality is that seven of the last eight coaches left in the playoffs were at least 50 years old. NFL history has shown that a coach’s years-long accomplishments are ultimately the deciding factor when it comes to major games. The bottom line? Experience will decide the Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams. However, McVay is a one-of-a-kind coach in the NFL. In press conferences, he never ceases to amaze reporters with his photographic memory of games and his ability to describe plays that took place during games from years ago. No team will be able to find an exact replication of McVay, no matter how hard they try. This will be the ninth Super Bowl appearance in both Brady and Belichick’s illustrious Patriots careers (with the first dating back to 2002). Brady has suffered some disappointing losses during that time, yet he still has five rings to his name and is looking for his sixth after last year’s defeat of the Philadelphia Eagles. There’s a reason why this will be the fourth time the Patriots will play in the Super Bowl in the past five years. They only have arguably the greatest player and the greatest coach of all time in Tom Brady and Bill Belichick; in addition, these two are the most experienced personnel the league has to offer. But McVay lacks the true big game experience Belichick brings to the table. At 33, McVay is half the age of Belichick, 66, and has played in nine fewer Super Bowls. While McVay may have a couple of tricks up his sleeve, Belichick has likely already seen every trick in the book and will know how to cope with any of McVay’s plans. Before the season started, I took a look at the Rams team and predicted that they would be Super Bowl champions. I originally questioned how Rams general manager Les Snead was able to fit all of these marquee players into the team’s salary cap. His ability to put this team together is undoubtedly impressive, and he has proved himself as one of the elite general managers in the game with the roster. As for the quarterback position, while the Rams’ Jared Goff has had an impressive season this year and has great potential, there is no denying that Brady is much better than Goff at this moment. That’s not a knock on Goff, who performed brilliantly in his last game against the Saints, but rather the reality of Brady’s prowess. As with the game against the Chiefs in the AFC Championship, everyone knew as soon as the Patriots won the coin toss that Brady would put the game to bed. He’s cool under pressure and has consistently shown his quality when it matters. Robby Aronson is a sophomore writing about sports. His column, “The Bottom Line,” runs every other Wednesday. The Rams are a worthy opponent for the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Their star-studded lineup is stocked in almost every position. Their defense is full of big names like defensive tackle Aaron Donald, while the offense also boasts some of the best in the league, like running back Todd Gurley. McVay and most of the Rams have never made a Super Bowl appearance before. Meanwhile, the Patriots have been to the last three. New England is used to the big-game environment, and its fanbase has come to expect great performances from them. But for most Rams players and fans, this will be the biggest game of their lives. The players’ nerves will most certainly play a part in this game. As for McVay, there is a reason why every team in the league is looking at the young, tactically astute players’ coach. McVay’s work with the Rams has been tremendous, and he has set the standard for coaching hires in the NFL. Not only is he great with the players, but his charm off the field has also impressed many in and outside of the league. A new, fun generation is shaping up in the NFL. With McVay’s Rams and Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs, the NFL’s next generation looks like it is in place to take the league by storm over the next few years. Every football fan is now looking forward to the energetic path the league is going. But right now, the league still belongs to Brady and Belichick’s Patriots. Over the past five Super Bowls, the Patriots haven’t necessarily had the greatest supporting cast in the league. Often, I’m sitting on the couch, watching the big game and saying, “Who’s that guy?” when I’m watching the Patriots play. Yet, time after time, the Patriots seemingly find a way to win the American Football Conference and reach the Super Bowl.last_img read more

LA Lakers’ Kobe Bryant fondly recalls inbounds scuffle with Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes

first_imgIt did not take long for Lakers rookie forward Larry Nance Jr. to redeem himself after tipping a rebound into the wrong basket during the Christmas Day loss to the Clippers. Against Memphis, Nance Jr. posted his first career double-double with 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting and 11 rebounds in 24 minutes. “I loved the way he played,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “His confidence is growing and growing.”Nance Jr. credited his teammates for both passing to him and encouraging him to take open shots. “Their confidence helps my confidence, Nance Jr. said. “I was real hesitant. If I don’t take the shot, they’re mad at me. Whether it goes in or not, they don’t care.” As for his blooper against the Clippers? Nance Jr. called the play a “freak accident.”“The rebound went way over my head. I reached back and tried to catch it. It was one of those that slipped out of my hands,” he said. “It was one of those things I’ll be seeing for a long time. But at the same time, I’m not worried about it.”That’s because Nance Jr. insisted he won’t appear on TNT’s “Shaqtin a Fool” after posting on his Twitter account a so-called “golden ticket” that makes him exempt from appearing on that segment. “The producer of ‘Shaqtin a Fool’ was a Northeast Ohio guy,” said Nance Jr., who grew up in that area. “He hooked me up on that one.” Words of wisdomIt did not take long for Bryant to come up with what feedback he would offer his younger self. “It’s hard to tell somebody at that age to understand compassion and empathy,” Bryant said. “That would be my advice. It comes with time.” Bryant said he improved those qualities after former Lakers forward Rick Fox told Bryant in a team meeting in the early 2000s, “We just want to feel like you need us.”“The biggest thing about being a leader and winning a championship is understanding how to put yourself in other people’s shoes,” Bryant said. “It’s not necessarily the individual skill you possess. It’s about understanding others and knowing what they may be going through.”Bryant then argued that issue has little to do with his high-volume shooting. “Bringing the best out of people isn’t passing the ball and giving them open shots,” he said. “It’s about how to connect with them and how to communicate with them so they can navigate whatever issues they may face. That’s a very, very hard thing to do.” “He’s crazy, but he’s not that crazy,” Bryant said, alluding to Barnes’ reputation as an emotional and physical defender. “So I didn’t bother flinching.”Bryant’s reaction soon became an Internet sensation and furthered his legend as an unfazed competitor. Yet, Bryant recalled Barnes’ reaction that many have echoed: “It’s human nature to flinch.”Yet, Bryant offered a simple explanation for his stoic reaction. “It was a split second and I processed it pretty quickly,” Bryant said. “I realized he wasn’t going to do it. We laughed and joked about it a lot when he played together.”Breakout game Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img MEMPHIS >> As soon as they crossed midcourt, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes hugged each other.It signified the bond they built when Barnes played for the Lakers (2010-12). But it also showed a much different exchange than when Barnes, a former Orlando Magic forward, pretended to inbound the ball at Bryant’s face during the 2009-10 season. “I thought it was funny,” Bryant said following the Lakers’ 112-96 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday at FedEx Forum. So much that Bryant did not even flinch. last_img read more

Giants’ Daniel Jones challenges doubters with perfect preseason debut

first_img2019 NFL PREDICTIONS:Standings, playoff projections, Super Bowl pickJones also managed a perfect QB rating on his drive, but he did not miss a throw. The 22-year-old completed all five of his passes for 67 yards and a touchdown on what was his team’s second possession after Eli Manning started and the Giants’ offense went three-and-out earlier in the first quarter.After an hour-long weather delay on the heels of Jones’ TD drive, the game resumed with the rookie passer parked on the sideline for the night. It signaled the accomplishment of Jones’ first NFL mission.We’ll spare you the overreaction to a single drive in a Week 1 preseason game. This is not sudden validation for Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, who selected Jones with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. For now, Manning is safe as the starter. This is nothing more than a step for Jones in his NFL development.But it’s not insignificant. Jones did everything he needed to do and more Thursday. His performance was something of a dare. Go ahead, keep doubting me.Drive 1: Every single Daniel Jones pass-5/5, 67 yds and a TD 👀Say goodbye, Eli pic.twitter.com/MURmdOceVD— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) August 8, 2019In the preseason, which is defined by basic schemes and random mixtures of first-, second- and third-team offenses and defenses, we can’t draw real conclusions about any QB’s play. It’s also worth noting that Jones faced a grand total of zero pressure while slinging the ball around with ease.But we can at least reference the realistic goals for Jones cited by ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan hours before kickoff.”1. Move the offense and score points.” That’s a big check. With Jones at QB, the Giants needed only eight plays and 4:23 to get into the end zone.”2. Execute consistently.” Another big check. All five of Jones’ passes were thrown perfectly.”3. No negative plays (take care of the ball).” The only negative play on Jones’ drive was Wayne Gallman’s three-yard loss on a run up the middle.More impressive than Jones checking off those objectives, though, was the way in which he did it.He showed timing with his throw on a slant pattern to Golden Tate. He showed his ability to read coverage when he found Cody Latimer slipping behind the Jets’ zone defense. He showed arm strength when he roped a pass to Bennie Fowler on an out route. He showed all of the above, plus some touch, when he hit Fowler for the 12-yard touchdown.DAAAAAAAMN Daniel! 👀 pic.twitter.com/y916nWoLqO— New York Giants (@Giants) August 8, 2019″I think he did an unbelievable job, understanding the offense, reading the defense, putting the ball where it needed to be,” said Giants running back Saquon Barkey, who did not play Thursday, of Jones. The best way to illustrate the unofficial beginning of Daniel Jones’ career with the Giants is to compare the rookie quarterback’s one and only drive of Thursday night’s preseason opener to that of Sam Darnold, who started for the opposing Jets. In the opening series of the game, Darnold completed four of five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown. His passer rating was a perfect 158.3.And yet, Jones was better. These kinds of attributes are vital for a quarterback to succeed in the NFL, and they make themselves evident (or not) even in an otherwise meaningless preseason game.Jones’ numbers on his lone drive were great, but they don’t mean anything. His poise and apparent comfort at this stage of his career, on the other hand, were telling.We’re months away from finding out whether Jones is worthy of his status as a top-10 pick, but it took only five throws for many to realize he is not the joke they thought he was.last_img read more
