By Jeff McDonald Published 8:25 am CDT, Monday, August 26, 2019 Derrick White was bandaged and banged up, but otherwise able to suit up for Team USA on Monday morning in Australia. The Spurs guard scored six points with two steals, an assist and a block in 13 minutes as the United States crushed Canada 84-68 in its final tune-up before the start of the FIBA World Cup tournament. White's availability for Monday's exhibition had been in doubt after he took a nasty spill in Team USA's 98-94 loss to Australia on Saturday in Melbourne, opening a gash above his left eye. The defeat ended the United States' 78-game winning streak in international competition, dating to the 2006 World Championships. White, a 25-year-old entering his third NBA season this fall, left the setback against Australia with an ice pack on the gash over his cut forehead. He needed four stitches to close the wound, but later passed concussion tests and played Monday with a large bandage on his head. … [Read more...] about Spurs’ Derrick White returns to floor for Team USA

Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz USA TODAY Published 10:24 AM EST Feb 5, 2019 Now that Super Bowl LIII is wrapped up, the full order for the first round of the NFL draft officially has been set. And while free agency is still more than a month away and will greatly reshape teams' needs ahead of the draft, the NFL scouting combine is just weeks away from kicking off in Indianapolis. With less than three months until the first round begins in Nashville, here's our latest projection for the first round: 1. Cardinals — Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State: Arizona is returning to a 3-4 scheme under new coach Kliff Kingsbury and defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, but the shift shouldn't alter the team's view of Bosa. Like his older brother Joey of the Los Angeles Chargers, the two-time consensus All-American offers the athleticism and well-rounded skill set to make life difficult for opposing quarterbacks no matter where he's deployed. As they build up a talent-bereft roster, the … [Read more...] about USA TODAY NFL mock draft: Detroit Lions get Greedy, Round 1
Jamie L. LaReau Detroit Free Press Published 9:00 AM EST Feb 5, 2019 World's fairs of yore have introduced remarkable innovations and landmarks: The Eiffel Tower in Paris in 1889, the first Ferris wheel built for Chicago's 1893 fair, Seattle's Space Needle for the 1962 expo, the X-ray machine and even Belgian waffles, to name a few. Once spectacular, enchanting events, most Americans today care little about world's fairs. The United States has hosted only 11, the last in New Orleans in 1984. “I don’t think people have any sense of the world’s fair. The response I got when I asked millennials about it was laughter,” said Jessica Caldwell, executive director of industry analysis at Edmunds. “They thought they’d see hot air balloons and light bulbs. They think it’s a notion from an older time.” That makes things tough for Frederick Bush, who is chairman … [Read more...] about World’s Fair centers on mobility, so are automakers biting?
Ren Zhengfei founded Huawei in 1987 and watched it grow into a global behemoth. (Photo: AFP) Ren, 74, founded Huawei in 1987 with just 21,000 yuan (US$5,600) and watched it grow into a global behemoth with 180,000 employees operating in 170 countries, sales of 206 million smartphones last year, and revenue topping US$100 billion. But broad criminal charges unveiled in the United States this week are now threatening to wreck his empire and put his daughter, Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, behind bars. The accusations dealt a blow to Huawei's image just as the famously secretive company had mounted a media blitz to salvage its reputation, with Ren leading the charge to dispute espionage concerns. Huawei's PR department "says we're at a stage of crisis transition, I need to make our customers understand us," Ren told Chinese media this month. "I've been forced" to speak out, he said. Meng, who was arrested in Canada and faces a US extradition hearing in March, was … [Read more...] about Huawei”s founder faces fight for company and family
