Anthony Fenech Detroit Free Press Published 5:39 PM EDT May 26, 2019 QUEENS, N.Y. — Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire hadn’t looked at the replay because there was nothing he could do about it. Instead, he was standing behind a desk inside the visiting manager’s office at Citi Field, sounding like he did the day before. The Tigers fought, they had a chance, they couldn’t get the big hit. But nearby, JaCoby Jones was looking at the replay of the final pitch of Sunday’s series finale against the Mets, a 96.8 mph fastball from closer Edwin Diaz that was close enough for Strike 3. Jones eventually offered this assessment of home plate umpire Jerry Meals’ call: “It was off the plate.” Whether it was or not — “Everybody in here said it was really close,” Gardenhire said —the pitch was too close to watch with the game on the line, and after Jones did so, as his momentum from expecting a walk took him toward … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers go down looking on strikeout call

We’ve all had it happen: You look at your phone and notice a missed call from a familiar-looking number that isn’t in your contacts. Your first instinct might be to call back and see who it was, but that’s the last thing you should do.You might assume calling back is safe because a number happens to be from your area code. Is it your doctor? Your kid’s principal? A neighbor? Unfortunately, the answer is probably none of those, says Adam Levin, founder of CyberScout and author of Swiped: How to Protect Yourself in a World of Scammers, Phishers, and Identity Thieves.

Long before there were pink protest hats, or “Notorious RBG” T-shirts celebrating Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, women on both sides of the Atlantic were making fashion statements about feminism. On Dec. 5, 1908, at Royal Albert Hall in London, David Lloyd George gave a speech that went on for more than two hours. As he wound down, it became clear that the Lloyd George — a top official in Britain’s ruling party and later the prime minister — was not going to address one of the most pressing issues of the time: Women’s suffrage. A cry went up: “We want deeds, not words!” Helen Ogston, a 25-year-old Scottish woman wearing the green, violet, and white sash of the suffragettes around her shoulders, flowers in her hair, stood up and excoriated Lloyd George. As Royal Albert Hall guards approached, she pulled out a dog whip and began hitting the men.
