Coleman easily found: At the front of the pack at worlds

first_imgTaal Volcano’s lava fountain weakens, but Phivolcs says it’s not sign of slowing down View comments Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next And the United States found a surprising, maybe shocking, gold medal in one of the very few spots it hasn’t dominated at some point in track and field’s long history — women’s hammer throw. It came courtesy of a softball player-turned-throwing star named DeAnna Price whose first experience hurling that big piece of metal resulted in her getting bonked in the head.“I remember literally dropping it and saying, ‘I’m never doing this again,’” she said.Could anyone have blamed Coleman for thinking the same five weeks ago when his name started showing up in the headlines?The leak of information about his troubles with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency opened up a spigot of allegations and recriminations that followed him to Doha and could stay with him on the road to next year’s Tokyo Olympics.“It’s pretty disturbing to know people out there say things and they don’t know me personally at all,” Coleman said. “But at this point, I’m over it.”His case involved three “whereabouts failures” that occurred between June 6, 2018 and April 26, 2019. Three failures in a 12-month span can trigger an anti-doping violation.But the rules are technical, and there’s a difference between not being where you say you’re going to be and simply failing to update the app that tells authorities where you can be found. Because of those details, Coleman’s first violation was backdated to April 1, 2018 — the start of the three-month period at which the original information is supposed to be inputted. That took his first violation out of the 12-month window and compelled USADA to drop the case.It allowed Coleman to race here in Doha, but couldn’t strip away the words “Coleman” and “Doping” that appeared in headlines worldwide.Coleman, who has been subject to more than 20 doping tests over the past two years and never been hit with a positive, posted a long YouTube video to explain the situation. He came to Doha thinking that would calm things down. It hasn’t, and at this point — with the 200-meter qualifying starting Sunday and relays on his plate later next week — he’s done trying.“I’m not spending much time trying to explain things to people who aren’t interested in the truth,” he said. LOOK: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3 takes you straight to hell with a Music Video and First Look-Images Best, perhaps, to let his running do the talking.With Tokyo a mere 10 months away, Gatlin, who came in as defending champion, bronze medalist Andre De Grasse and Yohan Blake of Jamaica found out just how much room they have to make up.When did Coleman know he had it wrapped up?“From the start,” he said. “I got up on top of everybody. … I knew that if I was being patient, the end would take care of itself.”At the end, Coleman let out a primal scream, then pounded his chest twice and jogged a half-circle around the track, shouting into the stands. He blew a couple of kisses toward the heavens and kneeled for a brief second.The half-full, 40,000-seat stadium was emptying. It was a far cry from the Bolt celebrations, all infused with reggae music, Jamaican flags, plenty of preening, picture-taking and the bow-and-arrow pose.“There are so many people doing really good things right now,” Coleman said. “Everyone should be celebrated. It doesn’t have to be one face. I’m happy to part of that group.”Fair enough. But on the first big night of track without Bolt, Coleman found himself separated from that group, not running with it.

Towering, aged oak removed after experts declare it a hazard

first_imgThe street north of Brandeis-Bardin Institute presumably got its name from the tree, Dwyer said, adding, “Indian kids probably climbed this tree.” “Five hundred years ago Indians were probably sitting in the shade of this tree,” she said Friday as she watched workers begin to cut it down. “How many history-making conversations took place here?” Still, the tree is clearly dead, she said. “If the trunk is in good enough condition, the ultimate goal will now be to display it at the historical park,” Dwyer said. Clark said there was actually a palm tree growing out of the oak tree’s massive trunk, so the palm would be removed as well. But the huge open area where the tree stood was expected to be replanted with more trees. “There is a long history of the demise of this tree,” he said. “Oak trees are known to be slow-growing and very slow to die. You cannot have a dead tree in a public right of way. It’s a matter of safety.” eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

SIMI VALLEY – A majestic oak tree in the center of Heritage Oak Court was cut down Friday and Saturday after city officials concluded it was dead and had become a hazard to the cars and pedestrians below its branches. Jerry Clark, a landscape architect for the city of Simi Valley, said the nearly 100-foot-tall coast live oak in the cul-de-sac might have been as old as 700 years. Judy Dwyer, a member of the city’s tree advisory committee, said if a good cross section of the 8-foot-diameter trunk can be saved, she hopes it can be moved to the Strathearn Historical Park, where its tree rings could show important times in the area’s history. “It’s not one of the largest, but it is one of the oldest trees around here,” she said. “It makes me sad. … It’s history.” last_img read more

Enbridge and Spectra Energy merger expected to close February 27th

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. — Enbridge Inc. and Spectra Energy Corp. announced on Friday that the previously announced merger of the two companies is expected to close on February 27th, after the merger was cleared by the Canadian Competition Bureau.“We are very pleased to have now received all required regulatory clearances and we look forward to realizing the significant customer and shareholder benefits of combining these two strong companies,” said Al Monaco, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enbridge. “With the completion of the Transaction, Enbridge will become a leading global energy infrastructure company and the largest in North America with roughly C$166 billion in enterprise value and the strongest liquids and natural gas infrastructure franchises on the continent. We will have a diverse set of low-risk businesses comprised of a best in class network of crude oil, liquids and natural gas pipelines, a large portfolio of strong, regulated gas distribution utilities and a growing renewable power generation platform. The combined company will be positioned to provide integrated services and first and last mile connectivity to virtually all key liquids and gas supply basins and demand markets in North America.”Monaco added, “A significant amount of collaboration has allowed us to get to this point. The two companies have completed extensive planning in advance of closing and will be focused on a successful integration. Our teams are well prepared to ensure a smooth transition for our customers, employees and other stakeholders, while maintaining a sharp focus on our number one priority – the safety and reliability of our networks. We look forward to realizing the benefits of this strategic combination while delivering the energy people want and need.”- Advertisement -Spectra Energy Chief Executive Officer Greg Ebel, who will become chairman of Enbridge once the Transaction closes, said, “By combining the strength of Enbridge with the strength of Spectra Energy, we are creating an unrivaled company that will provide superior value – now and into the future – for our customers, employees, investors and communities. The Transaction will significantly enhance and extend the dividend growth outlook for Spectra Energy shareholders. No other company in our industry will have this kind of high-return, low-risk model that investors value so highly.”Enbridge expects the Transaction will support its 12 to 14 percent secured ACFFO per share CAGR guidance over the 2015-2019 planning horizon, and will be strongly additive to the Company’s growth outlook beyond that timeframe.As previously announced, following the closing of the merger, Enbridge will have a substantial capital project portfolio, including C$27 billion of commercially secured growth projects coming into service between 2017 and 2019, and C$48 billion probability-weighted development project portfolio. The growth program is expected to enable the Company to deliver highly visible ongoing dividend growth of 10 to 12 percent per year, on average, through 2024, while maintaining a conservative payout of 50 to 60 percent of ACFFO.Advertisementlast_img read more

Economy springs ahead but may fall

first_imgThe gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic health, expanded at an annual rate of 4 percent in the April-to-June quarter, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. That was the strongest showing in more than a year and considerably higher than the 3.4 estimate for growth made a month ago. The improved performance reflected higher activity in such areas as international trade and business investment, which offset an ongoing plunge in housing construction. But that growth could be the best showing for some time as the economy gets battered by the worst housing slump in 16 years and a widening credit crisis that has sent financial markets on a roller-coaster ride in recent weeks. “The economy has taken a significant blow from the turmoil in financial markets and the housing downturn, which is intensifying,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com. Many economists said they expected growth to slow to around 2 percent in the current quarter, just half the spring pace, and perhaps dip below 2 percent in the fourth quarter as the effects from the market turbulence on consumer and business confidence take more of a toll. But analysts said they still believe the economic expansion, which will be six years old in November, will be able to avoid a full-blown recession. “While a recession in the United States is clearly possible, one of the biggest positives going forward is that the rest of the world still looks good, which means we will get continued help from rising exports,” said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at Global Insight. An improved trade performance, representing higher sales of American products overseas and lower imports, was the biggest factor contributing to the second quarter improvement, adding 1.4 percentage points to the 4 percent growth rate. Analysts said they also had confidence that the Federal Reserve would act in time to ward off a recession by cutting interest rates should financial troubles intensify. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke triggered a big rally on Wall Street on Wednesday after a letter was released in which he repeated assurances that the Fed was ready to “act as needed” to help the economy. Bernanke is scheduled to deliver a speech on housing and monetary policy at a Fed conference in Wyoming today, when he may offer some hints about future Fed rate actions. Wall Street had a back-and- forth session Thursday as investors awaited Bernanke’s speech. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 50.56 points to close at 13,238.73. The Fed’s next meeting is Sept.18, and many analysts predict the Fed will start cutting the federal funds rate then, delivering from two to four quarter-point reductions this year and early next year. The funds rate has been at 5.25 percent for more than a year. Those cuts would make borrowing cheaper for consumers and businesses and also help to mitigate the payment shock facing 2 million mortgage holders as their adjustable-rate mortgages reset in coming months. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Proposal mandates universal insurance

first_imgSACRAMENTO – An Assembly committee approved a bill Tuesday that would mandate that Californians buy health insurance coverage, much as drivers are required to purchase auto insurance. Although California voters and politicians repeatedly have rejected forcing individuals and employers to pay for a universal insurance program, lawmakers are seeking to capitalize on the momentum from a new Massachusetts law that will make that state the first in the country to establish mandatory health insurance. “We have a choice about whether we’re going to stay stuck in the mud,” said Assemblyman Joe Nation, D-San Rafael. “We have a situation where we have 20 percent of the population without health insurance.” The Assembly Health Committee on Tuesday held the first hearings on two proposals from Nation and Assemblyman Keith Richman, R-Granada Hills, that both lawmakers said would insure the estimated 6.5 million Californians who lack health insurance. The committee approved Nation’s bill, 9-3, but rejected Richman’s bill 10-1. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventAt the center of both bills is a mandate that individuals be responsible for getting themselves health insurance – a controversial proposal that taxpayer and consumer groups warned could lead to higher premiums, more uninsured people and increased medical bankruptcies. “The problem with the health care system is that health insurance is unaffordable or unavailable,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access, a statewide health care consumer advocacy coalition of more than 200 groups. “It’s not that there’s people who don’t want coverage.” Both bills would require that health insurance companies offer an essential benefit plan, which would cover medically necessary services to the country’s largest population of uninsured. But that’s where the similarities appear to end. Nation’s bill would create a benefits fund that would be financed by employers that do not offer health insurance to their workers, individual premiums and state-appropriated dollars. Meanwhile, Richman said individuals alone should be asked to pay for their health insurance. Aside from low-income families that would qualify for assistance, Richman’s bill would mandate that Californians buy coverage that carries at least a $5,000 deductible. Critics said both bills fail to address the problem – skyrocketing health care costs and barriers that preclude individuals with pre-existing medical conditions from buying affordable coverage. California voters have been opposed to forcing private employers to pay health insurance costs. In 2004, voters narrowly nullified a state law that would have required large and midsize employers to help pay for health insurance for their workers.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
