Notre Dame’s men’s basketball team played one of the best games we’ve seen from a squad in the NCAA Tournament Saturday night. The Fighting Irish’s valiant effort ultimately wasn’t enough, though, as they fell to undefeated Kentucky, 68-66. Still, Mike Brey’s team has plenty to be proud about this season; an ACC Tournament championship and an Elite Eight run highlight an awesome year. Following the loss to the Wildcats, Notre Dame’s fans welcomed their team home with roaring applause. Much-deserved welcome home for one of the best @FightingIrish teams you’ll ever see. Thanks, @NDmbb. pic.twitter.com/ET6mvODLlJ— Josh Flynt (@jflyntnd518) March 29, 2015That’s a great scene. Notre Dame’s run to the Elite Eight was the sixth in program history and the first since 1979.

The four-star plays quarterback and safety for Wossman High School, and shined in a recent scrimmage against Peabody.

WASHINGTON – In a test case for the aggressive use of trade penalties in Donald Trump’s America, the Canadian and British governments urged a U.S. tribunal Monday not to impose duties on Bombardier planesCanada’s ambassador to Washington argued that potential duties of up to 300 per cent on Bombardier’s C-Series jet were illegitimate and he urged the U.S. International Trade Commission to reject them.On the same day the ambassador was fighting one commercial dispute, the Trump administration released a new national security strategy mentioning trade almost five-dozen times, heralding an elbows-up attitude to trade in general.And, in New York state, the governor instituted a new law with Buy American provisions.MacNaughton listed several problems with the penalty on Bombardier. First, he said it’s rooted in speculation that American powerhouse Boeing will be hurt by Bombardier C-Series imports, the sort of conjecture forbidden not only under U.S. law, but also by World Trade Organization rules.Moreover, he told the commission there’s no evidence Bombardier planes will be exported to the U.S.; that the C-Series does not compete with similar-sized Boeing aircraft; that Boeing has a seven-year backlog in sales, invalidating its claim of an injury; and that duties would ultimately hurt Americans because Bombardier accounts for 23,000 jobs in nine U.S. states.The British ambassador to the U.S. made a similar case, and added another shot at Boeing. Kim Darroch argued that Boeing has benefited from billions in government support via different U.S. mechanisms, while it complains about subsidies elsewhere.MacNaughton acknowledged the broader implications of this fight.Speaking to reporters outside the hearing, he said anti-trade rhetoric in the U.S., not just from the Trump administration, has emboldened companies to launch commercial attacks on their foreign rivals.“What we are seeing is because of, in large measure, the rhetoric that exists in the United States at the present moment — and I’m not just referring to one source of the rhetoric, I’m talking broadly of the anti-trade rhetoric — it has given U.S. companies the permission to take action they wouldn’t have taken before,” MacNaughton said.“The real danger of this is it’s going to have a negative impact on U.S. jobs.”The Trump administration itself has boasted about how trade complaints like Boeing’s have surged since it took office. On Monday, it released a new national security strategy and listed trade as a top threat.“Economic security is national security,” it said the document. “Unfair trade practices (have) weakened our economy and exported our jobs.”In New York State, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law with Buy American rules for steel and iron on bridges, more limited than earlier domestic-procurement rules Canadian premiers had lobbied against.Boeing argued that it’s Canada that is practising unfair trade.The company said public subsidies in Canada have allowed its rival to stay alive, and creep into potential markets. It said C-Series sales are already hurting its orders and claimed the recent Bombardier-Airbus partnership to build in Alabama is a ruse that would disappear if duties are rescinded.It’s hard to compete when your rival benefits from a bottomless source of funding from foreign taxpayers, said the president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Kevin McAllister.“Boeing makes the best airplanes in the world. But we can’t compete with companies funded and backed by governments,” McAllister said.“In a fair competition, I’ll bet on Boeing, our U.S. employees, and the U.S. industry every time. But we should only have to compete against private companies — not governments and the airplanes they create and produce through endless subsidies.”He cited examples of how hard it is to compete with government. For example, he noted that the Canadian government recently cancelled a big military contract for Boeing Super Hornets, in retaliation for the fight with Bombardier.He also argued that rock-bottom prices, subsidized by Canadian taxpayers, helped Bombardier swoop in to steal a contract with Delta, when that airline had initially looking to buy used airplanes in a deal brokered by Boeing.“Essentially Bombardier offered new airplanes at used airplane prices. And it worked,” McAllister said.He also cast this fight as something bigger. The Boeing executive explained how he grew up in Bethlehem, Pa., and saw the iconic Bethlehem Steel company shut down a generation ago, killed slowly by a variety of factors including dumped foreign steel.He said he now keeps a painting of the old plant in his office: “This left an impression on me.”One trade expert said the aircraft feud might have happened under any other presidency, as Boeing has the right to a bureaucratic investigation under American trade laws — independent of the politics.But Chad Bown, co-host of the “Trade Talks” podcast and senior fellow of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said it’s notable that Boeing filed this case in the U.S., rather than going the usual route of past aircraft disputes: the WTO.“I would argue that Trump’s approach to trade policy made it more likely that Boeing would file this case,” Bown said.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has demanded a “bigger performance” when his side faces Celtic in the Scottish League Cup final on Sunday.Aberdeen won the cup in 2014 and will be looking to lift the trophy again on Sunday when they holders Celtic at Hampden Park, and McInnes has called on his side to build on their fantastic run to the final as defeated three Scottish Premiership sides without conceding a goal.“We feel we have got the big performance in us to win the game,” McInnes told Sky Sports.“Celtic are the bigger club. They have got the bigger, better squad. But we are capable of a bigger performance on the day and that is what we will be looking for.”Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“In the last few months, we have had two very tight games against them.“The game we won there was nothing really in the game. We have come up with a big moment to get the three points and an important result.“The last two performances have been encouraging for us. Celtic are a good side – we all recognize that especially with where they are at the minute.“You have to get the balance right between attacking and defending. You have to try and recognize and nullify their key players from having an enjoyable day.“If they start enjoying the game it can be very difficult. We were far better in the second final against them and gave ourselves a chance to win.”

Dan Cohen AUTHOR Washington, D.C. — While much of the opening day of the 2018 Defense Communities National Summit focused on recognizing the contributions communities make on behalf of the missions and personnel at neighboring installations, keynote speakers highlighted additional actions local leaders can take to support military readiness. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson urged community officials to take a public stance when a dispute involving an installation and the community arises; for example, if residents were to complain about noise from military aircraft or traffic at a gate backing up onto local roads. When such a conflict surfaces, it’s important for community members to explain why “the sound of freedom” is important, Wilson said. Rather than base officials calling in to radio shows to explain the requirements of a military mission, listeners need to hear community representatives make the case for a particular sacrifice on the part of residents. “You need to make the call,” she said. “These things matter.”Meanwhile, Lucian Niemeyer, assistant secretary of defense for energy, installations and environment, urged community leaders to consider projects outside the gates that support installation readiness, including efforts to enhance energy and water resilience or resolve environmental concerns. Local commanders already have a lot on their plate, Niemeyer said.Phyllis Bayer, assistant secretary of the Navy for energy, installations and environment, advised community leaders to come forward with prospective ideas for partnering or for introducing smart cities technologies that could benefit a local base. Wilson also cited two specific issues communities can address to support military families. The first is focusing on the quality of public schools, an overriding concern as military families move frequently. The other issue is easing the way for military spouses to continue their careers by ensuring their states offer reciprocity for spouses’ professional licenses. “[It’s] a very big deal,” she said. In February, all three service secretaries wrote the National Governors Association to underscore the importance of the two issues.Air Force photo by Senior Airman Quay Drawdy
MONEY SHARMA/AFP/Getty ImagesBahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Wednesday said that she will not be contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. This comes as a shock since it was assumed that the BSP supremo, who never shies away from taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would compete against the BJP and Congress and gain a foothold in Uttar Pradesh. A war of words has been going on between BSP and BJP over the past few days with Mayawati making fun of PM Modi’s #MainBhiChowkidar campaign and BJP going to an all new low by speaking about her physical appearance. Mayawati had earlier tweeted, “The person who lives life in a royal manner, as against the principle of simple living and high thinking, had portrayed himself as a ‘chaiwallah’ (tea seller) in the last Lok Sabha elections for votes.” She also said, “Now he is declaring himself a chowkidar (watchman) with pomp and show for votes in the elections. The country is really changing!”In response, Baria’s BJP MLA Surendra Singh had said, “She gets a facial every day. The person who herself gets a facial daily is telling our leader that he is ‘shaukeen’ (vain).”He added, “Wearing clean clothes is not being ‘shaukeen’. Colouring hair at the age of 60 to look young is ‘shaukeen’. Her hair has turned grey but she colours it black.”
Kate MiddletonGetty imagesKate Middleton may have angered Meghan Markle’s fans with her behavior at baby Archie’s christening. Meghan’s fans have accused Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, of trying to steal the thunder at Archie’s christening by her choice of earrings.We have to say that, earrings are quite an outrageous and nitpicky details to get angry about. Reportedly, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex christened their son in an intimate ceremony in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle. After the ceremony, they released two official portraits of the big day to share with their fans. The focus of the images was the newly christened Royal. But it looks like some Meghan Markle fans had eyes only for the Duchess of Cambridge. Reportedly eagle-eyed social media users were quick to notice Kate was wearing Princess Diana’s Collingwood Pearl earrings, which she wore to Harry’s christening. Some fans were not impressed with this move, as they suggested Kate was trying to “upstage” Meghan. Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesFans took to Twitter to express their varying opinions on a pair of earrings. The opinions ranged from how Kate Middleton wanted to upstage Meghan, why else would she wear earrings that Princess Diana wore during Prince Harry’s christening. We have to say, that is some deeply researched observation. While another said that the earrings were a tacky move on Kate’s part, something for which Meghan would have been roasted. Meghan sure seems to have some supportive fans.Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle may not be on the best of terms but we thin these fans are reading a little too much into a pair of earrings.

Comcast this week came good on its promise of a bid for Sky, throwing a spanner in the works of 21st Century Fox’s moves to consolidate the pay TV operator ahead of its own acquisition by Disney.The £22 billion (€25 billion) bid means it is now far from clear how Fox’s plans will pan out. Fox will be under pressure to up its bid for the UK-based pay TV operator, and it seems likely that it will do so, because Sky is a keystone of Disney’s ambition to build an international business spanning content creation and distribution that will give it the scale to compete head-to-head with big tech players converging on the coveted media space.Fox now faces uncertainty on two fronts. It is still not cleared to complete its acquisition of Sky, which the UK Competition and Markets Authority is investigating on grounds of whether it will compromise media plurality. There is still plenty of political opposition to a deal, and it is still the case that the CMA’s provisional finding was that the deal s not in the public interest. That has led Fox to offer to either sell Sky News or bring about a legal separation and ring-fencing of the channel.Fox said that both proposals “comprehensively address any plurality concerns the CMA may have” and would guarantee Sky News’ future and editorial independence.Interestingly, the fate of Sky News figured prominently in Comcast CEO Brian Roberts’ remarks about how Sky fitted into Comcast’s wider strategy to UK investors. He said that Comcast would “fully maintain” Sky News’ “strong track record for high-quality editorial and journalistic independence”.Speaking separately to US investors and analyst, Comcast finance chief Michael Cavanagh said that the deal was “not trying to solve for just being international for the sake of being international” and emphasised that Comcast was “not striving for diversification internationally just for its own sake”. The attraction of the deal was Sky’s specific value and performance, he said.When Comcast initially indicated it would bid for Sky in February, ahead of the firm offer that was announced this week, there was much speculation about the US cable giant’s intentions, particularly in view of the fact that it was known to have previously made a move to acquire 21st Century Fox itself , a move that was rejected by Fox, supposedly on the grounds that it was less likely to be successfully executed than Disney bid.The firming up of the offer indicates that Comcast is serious, but it remains the case that one major effect is to discomfit both Fox and Disney.Fox and Disney are now likely to be locked in discussion about how to proceed. If Fox raises its bid for Sky, that will have an impact on the terms of Disney’s bid for Fox. If Comcast succeeds in acquiring the bulk of Sky’s shares – but not Fox’s 39% – the value of Fox to Disney is diminished significantly.If Comcast succeeds in its bid and an amended Disney-Fox deal is completed, the scene would be set for Sky to emerge as an uncomfortable Disney-Comcast JV – a situation that would be unlikely to persist for the long term. Disney could offer to acquire Comcast’s stake at a premium and for Comcast to sell, or vice versa.The stakes for both companies are high – but particularly for Disney. Another scenario could be for Disney to bid separately for Sky ahead of completing an amended Fox deal, but it will be wary about getting into a bidding war. The most likely scenario remains a counter-bid by Fox, backed by Disney. Whatever the outcome, it seems that Fox and Disney are likely to have to cough up quite a bit extra to realise their dream.
