In the news today April 9

first_imgFour stories in the news for Tuesday, April 9———FEDS SEEK TO STEM IRREGULAR MIGRATIONThe Liberal government is taking steps to stem the tide of asylum seekers who’ve been crossing into Canada from the U.S. at unofficial border crossings. Tucked into this year’s 392-page omnibus budget bill, which arrived in the House of Commons on Monday evening, is a provision that would prevent anyone who has made a refugee claim in certain other countries from making another claim in Canada. The provision applies to claims made in countries with which Canada has information-sharing agreements. Only a handful of countries qualify. The United States, through which all of the irregular border crossers pass, is one of them.———LIBERALS DEFEND TRUDEAU’S THREAT TO SUE SCHEERLiberals are defending Justin Trudeau’s threatened libel suit against Andrew Scheer, arguing that the Conservative leader’s editing or deleting online statements proves he knows he’s gone too far in criticizing the prime minister’s handling of the SNC-Lavalin affair. Scheer revealed Sunday that he’d received a letter from Trudeau’s lawyer, Julian Porter, serving notice of a possible libel suit over a statement issued on March 29, in which the Conservative leader accused Trudeau of leading a campaign to politically interfere with the criminal prosecution of Montreal engineering giant SNC-Lavalin and directing his former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to break the law. The notice is not an actual lawsuit, just a threat that one might come — a standard first step in a defamation claim.———IMMIGRANTS BEAR BRUNT OF QUEBEC BILLSImmigrants and visible minorities are noticing how some of the most significant pieces of legislation introduced by the Coalition Avenir Quebec government since it took power last October have something in common — the bills disproportionately affect them. Quebec’s Bill 21, which bans some public sector employees from wearing religious symbols, has drawn widespread criticism since Minister of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusiveness Simon Jolin-Barrette tabled it last month. Haniyfa Scott, a teacher in Montreal, says it is Muslim women who wear the hijab — as she does — who will feel it the most. Transport Minister Francois Bonnardel’s Bill 17, tabled last month, overhauls a taxi industry that is heavily composed of immigrants. ———SOME GIVE YOU HAVING CHILDREN TO SAVE THE PLANETRoy Sasano of Vancouver is among those who believe that giving up on the idea of having children will help reduce their carbon footprint and save the planet. Sasano is part of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement that believes in “refraining” from reproduction and says creating more people just adds more suffering for overselves and the Earth. Alistair Currie, with the U.K.-based charity Population Matters, says choosing to have fewer or no children is essential to ensuring people have a “decent living” on the planet in 50 years’ time. Currie says it’s hard to estimate how many people are choosing not to have children, mainly because they feel judged, although that perception is slowly changing.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Alberta Premier Rachel Notley testifies by video before the Senate transport committee on Bill C-48, the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act.— The Alberta Liquor and Gaming Commission appeals ruling that the government’s mark-up policy on craft beer is unconstitutional and the province must pay two out-of-province breweries $2.1 million in restitution.— Abdulahai Hasan Sharif will appear in court today with his new lawyer on five charges of attempted murder.

Defending champion Ohio State wrestling team enters new season with bullseye on

Coach Tom Ryan lifts the the Buckeyes’ national championship trophy as fans applaud during a national championship celebration for the OSU wrestling team on March 28 at St. John Arena. Credit: Lantern File PhotoWhile the Ohio State football team has begun its quest for a second-straight national title, the wrestling team is right on its heels in pursuit of its own repeat.After guiding the squad to its first national title in school history last year, head coach Tom Ryan and assistant coach J Jaggers both agree that there’s one thing this year’s team cannot do: be complacent.“We’ve got a big bullseye on our back now,” Jaggers said. “We’re kind of new to the party, we’re the most recent people in the club.”Ryan said he had fears about the dangers of falling into traps that many defending championship teams can face.“The one thing you always fight is complacency,” Ryan added. “Sometimes it’s unnoticeable, so you really have to look closely.”Both coaches said that the loss of four-time national champion Logan Stieber will not be easy to overcome, but incoming freshmen might be able to fill the void.“With elite level programs, the names change but the tradition continues, I’m thinking,” Ryan said. “So, there will be a different guy in there, but if the system and the process is being followed, we’re in a position to win it again.”Ryan tabbed Ke-Shawn Hayes, Myles Martin and Kollin Moore as three freshmen to watch this season.“For us to be back on top and to stay on top, we’ll need lots of points from those guys,” Ryan said. “And they’re all capable of it.”Jaggers also singled out Hayes and Martin as wrestlers who could make some noise in the upcoming season.“They are 100 percent the guys that we thought they were going to be when we recruited them.” Jaggers said. “They have looked phenomenal, and they’re just into it. They seem to fit our culture and what we’re looking to do.”The wrestling team is set to take the mat for the first time of the 2015-2016 season on Sept. 29 with its annual Wrestle Offs event at St. John Arena, which will feature members of the squad competing against each other. read more

Baseball Ohio State hopes to snap threegame skid in midweek matchup against

OSU freshman infielder Noah West (8) hits a home run during the first game of their double header against Minnesota on Mar. 25. Credit: Ed Sutelan | Lantern reporterIn the Ohio State baseball team’s first taste of Big Ten play for the season, little went right for the Buckeyes. Over the three-game sweep at the hands of the Minnesota Golden Gophers, the Buckeyes surrendered a total of 26 runs on 41 hits and managed to produce only 12 runs on 19 hits over the weekend.With another chance to pick up some wins in conference play this upcoming weekend against Purdue, the Buckeyes must first gain some momentum against the 11-11 Ohio University Bobcats at home on Tuesday. Coach Greg Beals believes the team is currently missing that one hit and that his offense will need to start finding some consistency in order to find its stride again.“Offensively, we’re always searching. We need to get better,” Beals said. “I thought we had some quality at-bats, but … we’re missing the hit when we really need one.”Scouting Ohio UniversityOSU has not been playing its best baseball of late, but OU has itself been finding difficulties making it into the win column. After starting the season 11-7, the Bobcats have lost each of their past four games, including a three-game sweep at home to Butler University.The 11 wins the team has compiled at this point have been derived largely from the success of its pitching staff. As a unit, the team has a combined ERA of 3.65, Of the nine pitchers who have contributed double-digit inning totals to the team so far, only one has an ERA north of 3.50 while five of the pitchers have sub-3.00 ERAs.A big reason the team’s pitching staff has found so much success so far is its ability to miss bats. In 202 innings pitched this season, the Bobcats have struck out 199 batters (8.87 batters per nine innings) and have held opposing hitters to a measly .243 batting average. While the pitching staff has been able to keep runs off the scoreboard, the Bobcat offense has had an equally challenging time bringing runners across the plate. The lineup does not have a single batter with a batting average over .300 and, as a unit, the team is batting just .254. OSU has struggled to make consistent contact, as well as the inability to make much out of the contact it makes. While the team’s on-base percentage is at .333, its slugging percentage is actually a point below, sitting at .332 on the season. They have 10 home runs, less than half of the 22 accumulated by the OSU offense. The star on the team this season has been redshirt junior pitcher and designated hitter Michael Klein. As a batter, Klein is slashing .299/.371/.517 with team-leading totals in walks (nine), hits (26), RBI (13) and slugging percentage. He is also tied for the team lead in batting average and home runs (four).On the mound, Klein has been the top starting pitcher for the Bobcats. Klein has the lowest ERA of any of the weekend starting pitchers at 2.19 and has allowed just 22 hits and six walks with 27 strikeouts in his 24.2 innings of work.Injury-riddled Bullpen Needs Arms to Step UpThe Buckeyes were missing two key arms in their bullpen over the past weekend, and it certainly did not help an aspect of the team that has struggled this season. With redshirt junior starting pitcher Adam Niemeyer out with an elbow injury, sophomore pitcher Connor Curlis was forced to shift from bullpen arm to starting pitcher on Saturday. Redshirt junior relief pitcher Kyle Michalik was also out over the weekend with an ankle injury. His status for Tuesday’s game against OU remains uncertain.After his team’s bullpen was unable to keep the game close in Saturday’s 15-5, Game 1 blowout, Beals said his team needs to get healthy soon in order to help alleviate some of the woes of the pitching staff.“We’re a little banged up in our pitching staff and when we put together the travel roster opening day, there’s four guys that as far as the pitchers, the 12 pitchers, there’s four guys that we had on that opening day travel roster that were not available to us this weekend,” Beals said. “So we need to get healthy to help us on the mound, so that we can keep ourselves in ball games better than we did there in Game 1.”Junior relief pitcher Seth Kinker is currently the only healthy Buckeye reliever owning a sub-3.00 ERA and one of only three arms with a sub-4.00 ERA.And as one of the leaders in that bullpen, Kinker is trying to help the inexperienced arms develop that relief mindset of trusting their stuff and being ready for any moment to be brought into the game.“Some of the leaders in the bullpen have also brought everyone together and we’re talking about certain situations where your name is going to be called and you need to be able to step up and command that situation,” Kinker said.Kinker also emphasized that the only way pitchers will develop confidence in their skill is by continuing to work on it and gaining experience on the mound.“You’ve got to be out there to get that confidence. And the only time you get that confidence is going day in and day out, working day in and day out and in the end, you’re going to find that confidence in your stuff,” Kinker said. “Rather than going out there, not being ready for that situation. I think that everyone just needs to calm down a little bit, it’s the first weekend. We’re going to find that confidence here in a little bit.”The two teams will look to get back to their winning ways on Tuesday with first pitch scheduled for 6:35 p.m. at Bill Davis Stadium. read more

Griezmann handpicked Lemars transfer to Atletico

first_imgWe go over the whole process Atletico Madrid went through to pick Thomas Lemar as their new transfer, Antoine Griezmann was directly involved.Right before the World Cup began for France, Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann was convinced by his club to stay with the promise of signing new players like Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco. We believed that the Colchoneros had been the ones who chose this young French midfielder but we weren’t aware that Griezmann had a lot to do with his arrival, turns out Antoine practically hand-picked Lemar as the new signing for Atletico Madrid and that was the reason he ultimately decided to stay with Diego Simeone’s club. The two players ended up making history for their country at the World Cup, Lemar had a lot less participation than Griezmann during the tournament but they were both important in getting France’s second ever World Cup success. Now as World Cup champions, the two players came back to Atletico as teammates and have already strengthened their bond as friends and also on the field. Thomas Lemar is arguably one of the players that a club like Atletico needed in their ranks, a creative midfielder who could distribute the football to the strikers.Entretien exclusif avec les trois Bleus de l’@Atleti à lire ce week-end dans le magazine @lequipe ! pic.twitter.com/PA6fbyVG4m— le magazine L’ÉQUIPE (@lemaglequipe) September 7, 2018But the whole process of signing Lemar wasn’t easy, because the Monaco midfielder was being procured by many of the biggest clubs in European football. The list of squads included FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Bayern Munchen, Chelsea FC, Manchester United, and even Tottenham Hotspur. All of those clubs knew the kind of special talent Lemar is, but Griezmann as his teammate in the national team had a special type of bond with Thomas that worked perfectly during the negotiations with Atletico Madrid. The season may have started slow for the newly arrived player, but nobody doubts his capabilities and everybody feels like his best football will come sooner rather than later. The period of adaptation for any player who comes from a different country tends to be different depending on the man, Lemar doesn’t speak the language and he is still learning how to get used to the lifestyle in Madrid. Fortunately for him, Lemar has Griezmann and also Lucas Hernandez to help him get more familiar with the club or culture.? Vigo, we’re here! ?⚪#AúpaAtleti #CeltaAtleti pic.twitter.com/vImsQ7m5ge— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) August 31, 2018Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Lemar is only 22 years old and what he does is very difficult for a young man his age. We really need a player who can give us that last pass, that was our weak point and Thomas will bring that to us. He has started the season as a starter which already turns him into a very important player for us. It is also up to us to help him, especially when he doesn’t participate in the game as much, which is something very normal during the adaptation process. He can have a very good moment during October for instance but it depends on each and every one of us to stay at that level of performance. Thomas is actually in very good hands, and he is the very first name I come up with when people ask me who I feel the most comfortable with. He is very smart and he understands the game of football very well, he also knows how to stop or pick up the speed during a game. He does everything well, always with a lot of experience which would transform any player into a top professional,” said Griezmann in the most recent interview with French journal L’Equipe.no words necessary. pic.twitter.com/f7eKCCoAA5— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) September 3, 2018Thomas Lemar’s objective with Atletico.Even if everybody at Atletico knows that winning La Liga is very important for the club, this is a different season for everyone because the Champions League final will take place at the Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid. The Colchoneros are obviously looking to get that spot in the final this season, because they would absolutely love to win their first ever Champions League trophy in front of their own fans at home. Atletico Madrid is arguably one of the most underrated clubs in European football, they have already reached two of the last five finals but they lost them both against Real Madrid. For Diego Simeone the whole process has been very stressful, which is why he believes this season will be different given all the new players who arrived at the club and the fact that they didn’t let any of their best players leave to new clubs this season. Thomas Lemar is one of Atletico Madrid’s biggest hopes for this season, alongside Antoine Griezmann.??Before kick-off, @AntoGriezmann, @LucasHernandez and Thomas Lemar wanted to share something special with all the Atlético fans out there! ?⚪?➡️ https://t.co/qZWQwJFpLZ#AúpaAtleti #AtletiRayo pic.twitter.com/6wIRlmE1Au— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) August 25, 2018How many trophies do you think Thomas Lemar will win this season with Antoine Griezmann?
