first_imgIan Holloway says QPR will take no chances with Jack Robinson following the left-back’s latest injury.Robinson has returned to light training following a hamstring problem and will not be considered for Thursday’s match against Wolves.He also missed Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Ipswich, having had to be substituted at half-time during the home win against Norwich the previous weekend.Robinson, who has battled his way back from a long-term knee injury, impressed Holloway in his 45-minute outing against Norwich.And the Rangers boss is determined to give him time to make a full recovery.Holloway has been impressed with RobinsonHolloway said: “We can’t risk it. He’s out there running but with one game and then almost 10 days (without a game), we can’t risk it.“I never risk my players. I need him long term, not short term.”Holloway rates Jake Bidwell as one of the Championship’s best left-backs but Robinson’s display as a wing-back gave Holloway food for thought.“I thought he was terrific – absolutely the sort of attitude I’m looking for,” Holloway said.“We lack that a little bit in wide areas – wonderful skill.

first_imgShortest hole at longest US Open course could bring trouble MOST READ “It’s the business of basketball obviously so nothing is for sure, but here I feel like we can work that out and we’ll have a chance to do this again next year,” Durant said. “It’s easier said than done obviously, but that’s the goal. We want to keep this thing together and see how we can continue to keep getting better.”The group that recruited Durant in the Hamptons that day last summer has the same philosophy about winning more championships. Along with Curry that day were Iguodala, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.“I do know me and KD had a conversation along with Draymond and Klay and Andre last year before he even showed up that that was kind of the identity of who we are as a team that we understand how important it is, the guys that are here,” Curry said. “You don’t want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense, you don’t want to force anybody to take that approach but at the end of the day we know what’s best for us as a group going forward. We’re going to do everything we can to keep this team together. I’ll have that mindset, KD’s going to have that mindset, I know Dre, Shaun, all the guys that are up for negotiating a new contract. We’ll see what happens. The beauty of what I know of this team, we all want to provide for our families, we want to get all that we can out of this game while we still have the legs to do it, but there are no egos when it comes to that side of the equation when it comes to us as professional athletes.”Curry and Durant also heard from former President Barack Obama with congratulations, though Durant said he was most excited that among 200 messages was a text from a high school girlfriend he didn’t realize still had his number.While the Warriors haven’t formally met to discuss whether they will visit President Donald Trump’s White House as is customary for championship teams, Curry said his mind hasn’t changed from when he was asked earlier this year about the possibility. Coach Steve Kerr also has been outspoken about issues with Trump.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

APOAKLAND, California — Stephen Curry will likely go from being the NBA’s biggest bargain to signing the richest contract in the league at more than $200 million.

Still feel like that today,” Curry said. “But obviously as a team we’re going to have a conversation. This is a moment that we all need to enjoy together. Nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together and the different kind of ceremonies that have happened around championship-winning teams. We don’t want that to taint what we’ve accomplished this year so we’ll handle that accordingly and responsibly and do the right thing for us individually and as a group.” “It would mean everything. What we’ve built here is truly special, it’s unique, it’s something that you don’t want to see end at all,” Curry said. “All the pieces that we have are important to the equation of winning a championship and competing for a championship every single year. It is a business. There are decisions that need to be made every single year and you’ve got to assess the situation as it is.“… As we go into the talks and this whole process, which is obviously new for me, I will approach it to get the most out of it I can as an individual, as a player, and something that I’ve been working for for a very long time. In the context of keeping the team together, if there are decisions that need to be made, we’ll talk about it for sure.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutTwo days after capturing the franchise’s second title in three years against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors prepared to part ways for what will be a busy offseason for general manager Bob Myers and the front office.Durant said he has “no question” in his mind he will be back with the Warriors.

Schad, formerly of ESPN, posted a long note to Facebook Tuesday afternoon, reporting that a former Baylor student named Dolores Lozano claims she was assaulted by former football player Devin Chafin and that both Briles and assistant Jeff Lebby knew about it. She even alleges that she and Lebby exchanged texts about the situation. She says that she brought allegations to the Waco Police, but Chafin was allowed to continue playing.

first_imgWASHINGTON – A Canada-U.S. women-in-business group created by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump released its first set of recommendations Wednesday, proposing more affordable child care and a new binational procurement initiative.It’s the first of five anticipated reports from the Canada-U.S. Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders, created during Trudeau’s first meeting with Trump last February.It is delivering its findings to the two leaders. This first report is on supporting women-owned businesses, and subsequent ones due through July will look at science education, attracting entrepreneurs, and improving access to capital.This first report makes four recommendations: affordable child care, getting startup-funding groups to measure and encourage women’s access to investment, diversity programs in private-sector supply chains and a new public-sector procurement initiative.The procurement idea calls on Canada to create a program like one in the U.S. where five per cent of public contracts are set aside for women-owned businesses in sectors where women are under-represented.It says the countries’ programs should be linked, with women able to qualify for the contracts in either country.The report notes the differences between existing child-care policies in Canada and the U.S.: Canada has a national system allowing paid parental leave, unlike the U.S. But the report says access to day care remains a challenge in both countries.”We recognize that Canada and the United States have taken different approaches to family policy and unpaid care work and do not suggest there is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution,” said the report.”In the United States, we heard women say that the high cost of childcare or in-home support prevented them from scaling their companies to their full potential. In Canada, we heard the need for more affordable quality child care programs… (Solutions) could include things such as maternity leave policies and tax incentives. It could also include measures to level the playing field between caregivers — for example, paternity leave policies.”The 20-page report lays out numerous gender disparities in the business world.It points to the minuscule percentage of major companies owned by women. The percentage is even smaller in Canada than the U.S. Citing federal data from both countries, it notes that a mere 14 per cent of companies in the U.S. with 100-500 employees are female-owned, and just seven per cent in Canada. The numbers for smaller businesses are only slightly higher.There’s a similar disparity in startup funding: 19 per cent of startups that get seed funding have a female founder, according to figures it cites from CrunchBase. The ratio drops for companies getting subsequent funding — for later-stage funding, 13 per cent or less of it goes to companies with a female founder.The paper urges funding groups to keep these statistics, and track them, quoting one CEO: ”You cannot improve what you don’t measure.” It also encourages companies to establish more networking opportunities.The challenge of networking is laid out in another part of the paper that cites survey stats showing there’s no clear consensus among men and women when asked whether it’s appropriate to have dinner, have lunch, drive in a car, or have a drink with a women who’s not their spouse.”It is worth noting that business relations between men and women are receiving greater scrutiny in the wake of recent sexual harassment scandals,” says the paper.”It is critical that women be encouraged and supported as they come forward about these instances. At the same time, some men have described heightened caution when interacting with women, especially in professional settings. A big takeaway is the need to challenge harmful social attitudes and biases, but also to be mindful of overcompensating behaviours that can further isolate women in business.”The paper released Wednesday was part of the project led by GE Canada President Elyse Allan, and NRStor Inc. CEO Annette Verschuren.The U.S. president’s daughter Ivanka, who participated in the launch of the project, saluted the arrival of the first report: ”Thanks … for your recommendations on growing women-owned businesses,” she tweeted.”We value private sector input in advancing the success of women entrepreneurs in US & Canada.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version said the council was created by Trudeau and Ivanka Trump and that it was expected to produce just four reports.last_img read more
