    ATLANTA (AP) — Dead last in the AL East, the Boston Red Sox were due for a hard look in the mirror. That’s where manager Alex Cora thinks he found the problem. The Red Sox manager has shaved the salt-and-pepper beard he grew prior to this season, hoping a new vibe might help Boston snap its season-worst five-game losing streak. Cora arrived clean shaven for Tuesday night’s opener of a two-game series in Atlanta, and he was willing to pin his team’s 10-19 start on his new look. “If we win 10 in a row, it’s on me because I should have recognized that before,” Cora said with a smile. After being held to a combined five runs while being swept in three games by the Chicago White Sox, Boston is 10 1/2 games behind the first-place New York Yankees. The Red Sox have lost 14 of 18 games. Of course, Cora tweaked his lineup, too. Trevor Story, hitting .194, hit sixth instead of at the top of the lineup. Designated hitter J.D. Martinez hit third instead of fourth. Xander...
    A day later, Zhu was back on the ice for the women's free skate. But once again, she was unable to get through the performance on her skates. After landing the first two jumps, she fell to the ice on the third, a triple flip, and fell again on her very next jump, Yahoo Sports reported. What was the reaction?"This is such a disgrace," a comment with 11,000 upvotes said, CNN reported. The outlet noted that some mocked her for not being able to speak fluent Chinese. "Please let her learn Chinese first before she talks about patriotism," one critic said. Another chimed in to say, “Zhu Yi, how ridiculous your performance is! How dare you skate for China? You cannot even hold a candle to an amateur!" Others reportedly criticized her privileged background and family ties. Zhu's father, Zhu Songchun, is reportedly a renowned artificial intelligence scientist who, in 2020, joined Peking University in Beijing from the University of California, Los Angeles. "Anyone would question how she was chosen to the team. Is it because she has...

    A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Tuesday: FRANCE The day’s only action sees Lens facing Lille in a local derby with the winner earning the last place in the last 16 of the French Cup. They are closely matched in the league table with Lille in eighth place and Lens one point behind in ninth at the halfway stage of the season. When they met back in September their league game was interrupted for about 30 minutes when fans from the northern rivals clashed at halftime. A large group of Lens supporters ran to the away section where they fought with Lille fans in one of several violent incidents to mar French soccer this season. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    MANCHESTER CITY are reportedly yet to launch a fresh transfer offer for Harry Kane, having seen their initial bid rejected by Tottenham. The England striker, 28, is top of Pep Guardiola's wishlist following the Premier League champions' opening day defeat to Spurs. 2Tottenham have so far refused to sanction a move for Harry KaneCredit: Reuters A sale is not on Tottenham's agenda but Kane has told the club that he wants to leave. City have been strongly linked with a move and a nine-figure bid said to be worth £120m was launched last week, according to transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano. But it is said that there has been no change in the Manchester club's offer since. SunSport revealed on Wednesday morning that Kane's camp is increasingly expectant of a breakthrough in negotiations. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wants around £160m for his star forward. The saga has led to the club and player's relationship deteriorating with differing claims over whether he had permission to extend his post-Euro 2020 holiday in Florida and the Bahamas.

    St. Petersburg, Florida — Pandemic restrictions on Florida-based cruise ships will remain in place for now after a federal appeals court temporarily blocked a previous ruling that sided with a Florida lawsuit challenging the regulations. The one-paragraph decision by a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was filed at 11:50 p.m. Saturday, just minutes before a Tampa judge's previous ruling on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention restrictions was set to take effect. The judges' issuance of a temporary stay keeps the CDC regulations regarding Florida-based cruise ships in place while the CDC appeals the June decision by U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday. The lawsuit, championed by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, claims that the CDC's multiple-step process to allow cruising from Florida is overly burdensome, harming both a multibillion-dollar industry that provides some 159,000 jobs and revenue collected by the state. A spokeswoman for DeSantis didn't immediately respond Sunday to an email and a text message from The Associated Press seeking comment. In a court filing, attorneys for Florida urged...

    GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) — Schalke won a Bundesliga game for only the second time in 15 months as Suat Serdar scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Augsburg on Sunday to delay the last-place club’s seemingly inevitable relegation. A goalkeeping blunder handed Schalke the lead when Augsburg’s Rafal Gikiewicz dropped a none-too-threatening cross from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar at Serdar’s feet. The midfielder marked his 24th birthday by knocking the ball past the prone Gikiewicz for his first league goal since January 2020. Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann kept his team in the game with key saves, blocking Ruben Vargas’ attempt after a defensive error gave Augsburg’s Swiss winger the ball, and punching away an audacious bicycle kick from Marco Richter. It marked the first win for Schalke under coach Dimitrios Grammozis, who started with on-loan Arsenal players Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi on the bench and only brought them on in the 74th and 78th minutes, respectively. Schalke’s only other win in the Bundesliga this season was an unlikely 4-0 victory over Hoffenheim under then-coach Christian Gross in January....
    Most of the Cowboys aren’t focused as much on their 4-9 record these days. They’ve got their eyes on something much bigger: A division title. Not Aldon Smith, though. Smith, the former 49ers and Raiders pass rush standout, has gone through way too much for way too long on his path back to the NFL to get sidetracked by illusions. He looks at the Cowboys record and sees it for what it really is. “We suck right now,” Smith said on the Cowboys’ radio station, “The Fan,” KRLD-FM (105.3) Monday. “I love these guys. We haven’t made the plays we need to make, but we will. “Stick along for the ride. (Stuff) happens.” Dallas Cowboys defensive end Aldon Smith (58) in action during the first half of an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens, Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2020, in Baltimore. (AP Photo/Terrance Williams)  The Cowboys head into Sunday’s game against the 49ers in last place in the weak NFC East. They’ve won just one of their four division games and they’ve been outscored by a whopping 103 points this...
    MILAN (AP) — Last-place Crotone recorded its first win of the season with an emphatic 4-1 victory against Spezia in Serie A on Saturday. Both sides were promoted last season. Spezia went into the game with 10 points but Crotone had just two from 10 matches and was the only team in the Italian league yet to win a game. Crotone hadn’t even scored in its last four matches but Junior Messias broke its goal drought in the seventh minute following a rapid counterattack. A mistake by Crotone midfielder Niccoló Zanellato led to Diego Farias scoring the equalizer 11 minutes later for the visitors. However, Crotone started the second half aggressively and Arkadiusz Reca and Eduardo Henrique netted shortly after the interval. Messias doubled his tally in stoppage time. Crotone remained bottom, four points from safety. It is a point below Genoa and Torino. Torino played Udinese later Saturday before the focus switches to the other end of the table where Lazio hosts Hellas Verona with both sides looking to close in on the top four. ___ More AP soccer:...

    For retired radiologist Scott Atlas, this is the best of times. For months, the federal government has not just don’t nothing, it’s done less than nothing to halt the advance of the pandemic that has so far killed more than a quarter of a million Americans. With Atlas helming Donald Trump’s “coronavirus task force,” and everyone who knows even the slightest bit about infectious disease pushed to the sidelines, the task force has become a clearinghouse for misinformation and attacks on states still trying to show they give a damn about the lives of citizens. Atlas has to be smiling as the number of daily COVID-19 cases rockets upward, even as Republican governors across the country continue to quiver in fear—not that thousands of people in their state will die, but that Trump might say something … unkind about the level of loyalty they’ve displayed to his policies. After all, Trump imposed a partial travel ban on China in February, don’t you know, and that solved everything. Now Atlas can smile as he fully engages in his dream of infecting hundreds of millions of...
    Researchers say the ongoing civil unrest taking place across the country isnt just a reaction to societal issues, Study Finds reports. Mathematically speaking, the country was due for a period of protests and turmoil, according to a study. Peter Turchin, a Russian American scientist from the University of Connecticut, predicted the unrest that has taken place over the past few years in the U.S. and western Europe would occur back in 2010 using the structural-demographic theory. In a new paper published in the journal PLOS ONE, Turchin and co-author Andrey Korotayev explain how math can be used to forecast future events. According to the study, there is a mathematical theory to determine when a country will face social and political instability. Using the theory, researchers say the U.S. will experience a violent surge every 50 years. To come up with their predictions, the scientists created a historical theory before making any calculations. The original 2010 study found that violence took place in 50-year cycles in 1870s, 1920s, and 1970s. Experts say the unrest isnt short lived either. They predict social...
    ACC football (Photo by Jacob Kupferman/Getty Images) Which college football teams will finish last in each Power 5 conference? While Group of 5 storylines are often entertaining and fun to follow, the simple truth in college football is that more focus is placed on the Power 5 conferences. Considering that every College Football Playoff team in the system’s albeit brief history has come from a Power 5 conference, it stands to reason why so much attention would be paid to them. Of course, the 2020 season will be a bit different as it pertains to Power 5 conferences for the simple fact that two of them, the Big Ten and Pac-12, won’t be competing in the fall if they end up playing at all. Yes, that does give Group of 5 teams a potentially better chance to make some noise but it also places even more attention on the three remaining Power 5 leagues, the ACC, Big 12 and SEC. All you have to do is look at the consistent contenders from each of those conferences to identify the teams...
    (CBS Local)– There are over 50 million people in the United States living with environmental illness. As Oliver Broudy discovered in his Simon & Schuster book “The Sensitives: The Rise Of Environmental Illness And The Search For America’s Last Pure Place,” chemicals can impact people who suffer from EI in many different ways. Some people with this illness are smell sensitive to things like perfume and bleach, while others need to live in the woods in order to avoid any chemicals in their lives. Broudy went on a cross country trip with one man who suffers from environmental illness and met many others in order to write this book. “I got exposed to this world in the summer of 2016 and randomly stumbled across this community and was immediately fascinated for several reasons,” said Broudy. “First because you couldn’t really tell whether what they were experiencing was real or not. There was a great deal of debate about as to whether this disease or syndrome or whatever you want to call it is a real thing. There are some scientists and...
