    Ivy also believes that racism undergirds efforts to undermine transwomen in female sports. "Who gets singled out for scrutiny is based on white women's conception of femininity," Ivy said and argued that any effort to exclude transwomen is based on "protecting the fragile, weak, cis white woman from the rest of us." For his part, Noah spent much of the interview playing some version of devil's advocate while still attempting to keep the lines of communication open because, he says, the topic has become so heated that people often revert to silence rather than engage in dialogue. Transgenderism "feels like one of the biggest issues in America, and yet, no one can seem to talk about it," Noah said to open the segment. Noah, for instance, wondered about biological women who are not transphobic but still believe that transwomen athletes have a distinct advantage in competitive sport, and the victory of 29-year-old transwoman skateboarder at the Boardr Open women's finals in New York City late last month seems to support this argument. He also tried to calm fears about the...
    A proper football man of Burnley Football Club.Imago/Zuma Press Facts matter: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter. Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.Burnley Football Club is not one of the planet’s great soccer powers. Over the last decade-and-a-half the Lancashire-based squad has gone back and forth between the bottom half of the English Premier League—the world’s best domestic league—and the country’s second division, which is, for reasons not worth getting into, called the Championship. The team’s style of play is grass-stained, low-scoring, and deeply frustrating. Their nickname is “The Clarets.” Their field is called Turf Moor. Their manager, until he was fired quite recently for reasons I will get to, had the look of a man who would glass you at the pub if you spoke ill of the pea wet. But he was actually a nice enough guy, by most accounts, and Burnley has been more competent for a while than they really ought to be. Now that you’re all caught up on what Burnley is, let’s talk about why they’re screwed. For...
    (CBS4) — The weather changes quickly in Colorado — and Lake County Search and Rescue has some important advice for anyone heading out into the backcountry. They say it’s a mistake that could be a matter of life or death. (credit: Lake County Search and Rescue) “Our mission coordinators would tell you they wish they had a dime for every time a rescue subject’s cellphone died just after the 911 call,” officials in Lake County stated on Facebook. That’s exactly what happened on Sunday, Nov. 28. At approximately 8 p.m., LCSAR was notified of two hikers in distress on Mount Massive. “The hikers said they needed help, but unfortunately their phone died before any more information could be communicated.” “A mission coordinator spent the night working with Colorado Search and Rescue Association coordinators to narrow down the subjects’ location via cellphone forensics, but because the subjects’ phones were dead, efforts in this area were met with only partial success.” A full scale search was launched at dawn the next morning.

    Eight need-to-knows for Week Nine of the Pac-12 football season … 1. At some point this weekend, the Pac-12 will announce kickoff times and TV networks for two key games next weekend: Oregon-Washington and USC-Arizona State. Welcome to the stretch run, where schedule uncertainty moves in lockstep with game stakes. As part of their $3 billion contract with the conference, ESPN and Fox have the right to place four games (two per network) on what’s known as a six-day hold — meaning, they don’t release the kickoff time until the weekend before the game. Two six-day holds have been used thus far. That leaves two for the final three weekends. ESPN and Fox aren’t required to use the full allotment, but they usually do. Their goal is to broadcast the best matchups possible during the month of peak interest, November. Waiting for the results of the previous week’s games gives them the best chance to put the top games in the premium broadcast windows. Yes, it creates difficult logistics. Oregon fans planning to make the five-hour drive from Eugene to Husky...

    Man’s best friends might be scared of vacuum cleaners but they are smarter than given credit for, according to a study. Scientists researching their intelligence in Japan found dogs can remember if a person is trustworthy. If they decide the person giving them an order is not, the clever canine will often decide not to follow their orders. The findings, published in the Animal Cognition journal, found the animals are quick to figure people out. The team from Kyoto University found the dogs in the study remembered if someone was being truthful towards them (stock image of Maddie, left and Barney) RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Pawsitively goofy!

    January 18, 2021 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. As an entrepreneur, time is not on your side. Yet spending those tedious hours to identify and vet the optimal candidates for your growing company is crucial. When your team needs to expand rapidly to meet organizational demands and challenges, it’s quite easy to hire the first person who looks good on paper. But making the wrong hire costs about 30% of the individual’s first-year expected earnings, according to the US Department of Labor. I can also tell you from experience that the wrong hire doesn’t just constitute monetary repercussions; it can permeate throughout your organization. It can have a detrimental impact on team morale and cause employees to question your leadership and decision-making abilities. The wrong hire consumes more resources than if you spent the time and due diligence to identify the right employee from the onset. With one wrong move, you’re consulting with employment lawyers, combing over your hastily created HR policies, trying to define how to handle...
    When did your team last win a national title in football?
    The hiring process can be one of the most difficult—and rewarding—parts of running a company. Adding a new team member can help meet your company’s needs, bring new perspectives to old processes, and help you grow in the long run. But with long hours, tough decisions, and seemingly endless interviews, the light at the end of the hiring tunnel can feel impossible to reach. Fortunately, there are some ways to make this essential process a little less grueling. If you’re looking to fill a new position with greater ease, read on for four tips to follow when hiring! #1 Make Your Candidate Requirements Crystal Clear When your job listing isn’t clear, the batch of applications you receive can quickly grow out of hand. The best way to narrow down your search (and make the process easier on yourself) is to be as specific as possible with the job description. This means listing mandatory qualifications needed for consideration, such as: A minimum amount of industry experience (in years) Educational requirements (degree, major, etc.) Specific certifications Proficiency in programs (with proof)...
    Snow is falling steadily. It's -15c, my hands are frozen and the icy windburn is cutting into my face. But I'm having the time of my life driving a sled hauled by six husky dogs across classic Arctic terrain. In front of us is a large frozen lake. Our instructor is far ahead on his snowmobile. Much can go wrong, but the dogs follow the track and then head into a large pine forest, with darkness descending. If you want to get a fix of real winter - and when travel restrictions allow - then head north to Swedish Lapland. My wife Zsuzsanna and I arrive here after a 15-hour train and coach journey from the ski resort of Are, as the third leg of our ten-day tour of Sweden. But you can, if you wish, take a faster route by plane. Dog sledding across the Arctic terrain in Swedish Lapland is the ultimate winter activity A husky sits in the snow - these dogs are strong, alert and always ready to spring into action The hiking and...
    Reddit is debating the toughest time for fans to have watched their college football teams, and this one is easy for me. College football is all about living life on a wave. That’s just the way it works. You have the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) When was the most frustrating time to watch your team? from CFB Well, as a Wisconsin fan, there was never a more frustrating season in my lifetime than the one back in 2018. Remember, we’re not just talking about what was the worst season to watch. We’re talking about the most frustrating, which obviously implies that it was also disappointing. The Badgers entered the 2018 campaign with all the hype in the world. We were viewed by many as a strong favorite to win the national title. Instead, we finished the regular season 7-5 with losses to BYU, Michigan, Northwestern, Penn State and Minnesota. To say the wheels fell off would be an understatement....
