    The winter meetings should be a hectic time for Jed Hoyer and Rick Hahn, the two men consigned with the task of making baseball in Chicago relevant again. Hoyer, the Cubs president, and Hahn, the White Sox general manager, are fortunate enough to have the complete support of their respective owners and have been around long enough to know what they do this week in San Diego will make an immediate impression on their fans, for better or worse. If they don’t make make any significant moves to bolster their rosters, they’ll be judged harshly. If they make a splash, they’ll be lauded for their effort. But sometimes a splash can turn into a albatross, as the Sox discovered after signing catcher Yasmani Grandal and starter Dallas Keuchel to multiyear deals three winters ago and the Cubs learned when they signed Jason Heyward to an eight-year, $184 million deal in 2015. The Sox waived Keuchel in May in the third year of his contract but probably are struck with Grandal in 2023, the final year of his four-year, $73 million...
    Share this: When you look to the top of the sports broadcasting profession you see Syracuse alumni everywhere you turn – from Bob Costas on the MLB Network and HBO, Class of ’74; and Mike Tirico, Sunday Night Football on NBC, Class of ’88; to Lincoln High’s Marv Albert, ’63; the (retired) Voice of the NBA; add ESPN’s Sean McDonough, ’84; Dave Pasch, ’94; Dave O’Brien, ’86 and Beth Mowins ’90 and CBS’ Ian Eagle, ’90. But Xaverian High grad (’81) and former Fordham voice on WFUV (90.7) FM, Joe Favorito makes a strong case for his alma mater. “As Michael Kay calls Aaron Judge’s record-breaking home run soon, how about some of these Fordham Ram voices who have been on hand for history,” he writes on social media.
    In this article AAPLApple introduced the iPhone 14 lineup, Apple Watch 8 products, and new AirPods Pro at an event in Cupertino, California, on Sept. 7, 2022.Sofia Pitt, CNBCApple just released its high-end iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max last week and some complaints are coming in about a bizarre camera flaw. Some users of Apple's new high-end phones, which start at $999 and $1,099 respectively, have reported problems when using third-party camera apps like TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram. Some have experienced the rear camera physically shaking, blurring the photos and creating a buzzing or grinding noise. CNBC could not duplicate the issue, but Apple has acknowledged its existence. "We're aware of the issue and a fix will be released next week," an Apple spokesperson told CNBC. Reddit users and Twitter accounts have been posting videos that show the flaw in action. One YouTuber, Luke Miani, uploaded a video to Twitter showing how his iPhone 14 Pro Max camera vibrates when using Snapchat, causing his photo to be blurry. You can also hear the phone's camera making a loud buzzing sound...
    NOISY neighbours are annoyingly a curse that some of us are forced to bear. One nursing student, however, decided that she’d had enough of her neighbours being loud at all times of day and night, and instead got some petty revenge before moving out. 1The nurse says her nightmare neighbours were keeping her up all night when she had to work 16-18 hours the following dayCredit: Getty Posting to the Reddit forum r/pettyrevenge, the anonymous nurse says that this occurred a few years ago when she was working full-time and attending nursing school, so was pulling 16-18 hour working days. She says that after moving into a new flat she discovered that the walls were pretty thin which added to the annoyance, writing: “During the day, I found it annoying to hear them yelling and playing music, but it wasn’t their fault the walls were thin. “The issue was, the noise continued into the early hours of the morning. Sometimes going on until 3-4am. Doors slamming, music blaring, conversations being yelled from upstairs to downstairs, unnecessarily loud sexual activity etc.”...
    Cupertino-Toyokawa Sister Cities Inc. (CTSC) hosted its third annual Bell Ringing for Peace Ceremony at Cupertino’s Memorial Park Aug. 6 to commemorate the end of WWII 77 years ago and the bombings of Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Toyokawa. Each holding a bell and origami crane symbolizing peace, attendees gathered around the stone lantern, a gift from Cupertino’s sister city Toyokawa, Japan, and rang their bells for 30 seconds as a gesture of remembrance. “This event is unique from what I’ve seen of any activity in organizations across the country,” Mayor Darcy Paul told attendees. “This is truly an ongoing dedication to making sure that we don’t have these types of really catastrophic events happening that are of our own making against each other. It reminds all of us to observe peace, and this is precisely the essence of what we’re trying to achieve worldwide.” “This is a time of solemn remembrance of all of us Japanese people, and we pray for the souls of those who lost their lives,” said “Jimmy” Kishimori, acting consul general of Japan in San Francisco and...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Draymond Green believes that he’s the NBA’s best at playing defense. Except on Twitter. There, he plays offense. This explains why, on Friday night between Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals, the Golden State forward opened up his Twitter page and let the 1.7 million people who follow him there know what he was thinking. “Let me guess…. Go to the gym Draymond you suck? I’ve been there already! How about Go watch film y’all Took an L? did that last night and today and will watch more later… SHUT UP!!” he wrote, followed by four crying-laughing emojis. Thing is, he wasn’t really responding to anyone. He didn’t quote-tweet somebody’s hot take or reply to somebody who directed a comment his way. Green simply presumed that complaints were out there after he struggled and the Warriors lost Game 1 of the title series to the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. “To be honest with you, I don’t really read my Twitter, so I was just saying stuff that I know people would say,” Green...
    SOME people can hear a strange rumbling noise in their ears when they tense their muscles. A Twitter science enthusiast who goes by Massimo went viral after tweeting about a muscle in your lugs that can create a "roar" noise. 1Some people can hear a strange rumbling noise in their ears when they tense their muscleCredit: Alamy To create the sound, which comes from inside your ear, you have to contract the muscle – but most people can't do this. Simply screw up your face really tightly, including your eyes, and see if you can hear a low, thunder-like rumble. Massimo wrote in February 2020: "A part of the human population can voluntarily control the tensor tympani, a muscle within the ear. "Contracting this muscle produces vibration and sound. The sound is usually described as a rumbling sound." The phenomenon has been known about since the 19th Century. It's thought that the muscle in question, the tensor tympani, dampens out loud noises such as sound of your own chewing or the clap of thunder. When tensed, the muscle changes the...
    (CBS4) – Quiet skies are quite literally non-existent for many residents in Boulder and Jefferson counties. “It is a recipe for disaster,” said Hep Ingham, a resident and member of Quite Skies Boulder County. “Then they do their loops all day long over the neighborhoods there and they violate the noise abatement regions.” Ingham said for years, he and his neighbors have been concerned with the increase in air traffic not only from the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, but also the Boulder Municipal Airport, among others. Not only does all the air traffic bring noise issues, but environmental and safety concerns as well, especially when planes are flying so low. Ingham said from an environmental standpoint, many of the planes are burning leaded fuel. He also said planes are not restricted to flight paths. “It’s pretty much laissez-faire at these airports, where pilots can do whatever they want and they do whatever they want, and it’s not good for the people on the ground,” he said. CBS4 spoke to several concerned residents off camera about the issues, but many did...
    Getty Texans QB Deshaun Watson shakes hands with Patrick Mahomes after a playoff game. The path is almost clear for Deshaun Watson to play meaningful football again. The embattled quarterback was cleared by a grand jury of criminal charges related to sexual misconduct allegations against him. With his legal woes in the rear-view mirror, Watson should be eligible to play in 2022. The Houston Texans had been trying to trade him last year, but many suitors were worried about a possible suspension. Which isn’t off the table. According to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, the league is still reviewing Watson’s case amid 22 civil lawsuits to see if he violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy. The Deshaun Watson media coverage has been, well, not a good look for the industry. — Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) March 12, 2022 Read More From Heavy How You Can Help Ukraine: Verified Charities, GoFundMe & Ways to Support Ukrainians But the first hurdle has been cleared and a suspension seems unlikely. Watson should be good to go. And the Philadelphia Eagles are “in play”...
    UFC star Israel Adesanya offered a strong defense of Joe Rogan, whose most recent controversy came as video emerged of him using the N-word multiple times on past episodes of his podcast. Adesanya is scheduled to defend his middleweight title against Robert Whittaker this Saturday for the main event of UFC 271. Rogan, a longtime UFC analyst will be on the call for the fight. During the pre-fight press conference, a question was directed at UFC president Dana White, asking about Rogan’s past use of the N-word. As White walked away from the podium, Adesanya jumped in and intercepted the question. “First off, let me take this one,” Adesanya said. “Hold up. I’m Black. I can take this one. Look, there’s a lot of c*nts in this game. There is a lot of snakes in this game. I’ve been in this fight game since 2008. And Joe Rogan is one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherf*ckers I’ve had the pleasure of working with.” “F*ck the noise,” Adesanya continued. “You know what they’re trying to do. You can’t control the...
    A PASSIVE aggressive noise complaint divides the internet after it's shared by an outraged resident - but some claim it's polite. A man who took to social media to share the letter his friend received from their neighbour has sparked a heated debate about racism. 1The letter appeared to make reference to the Black Lives Matter movementCredit: ElPapiShow Posting under the handle @ElPapishow, a London man said the letter felt like an insult and asked his thousands of Twitter followers if they could spot the racist comment. Responses to the post were torn over the bottom paragraph of the letter, which seemed to make to the reference to the Black Lives Matter movement, by saying: "We sincerely respect your 'lives' and space and genuinely believe that it 'matters". "Hope similarly you can respect our lives and the environment that we chose to live in too." Many people argued the noise complaint would've been phrased differently if it was being sent to a white tenant, but others said those offended should stop "running to the race card".   The man posted a photograph of the...
    IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (AP) — Some residents in a northern Michigan community are complaining about noise during summer nights. Rowdy teens? No. Adults playing pickleball. Iron Mountain in the Upper Peninsula won’t restrict pickleball hours at four courts. City Manager Jordan Stanchina had suggested ending games at 6 p.m., but 20 players attended a recent council meeting to object, The Daily News reported. Roxanne Hudson, who lives next to the courts, said she and her husband “just want to move.” Noise from the paddles and plastic balls goes on “hour after hour” and “just drives you nuts,” Hudson told the council. Pickleball is played on courts that resemble tennis courts but are much smaller. That’s part of the appeal. “We’ll try to mitigate (the noise) somehow,” Mayor Dale Alessandrini said. Scott McLure, speaking on behalf of players, said they might try quieter paddles. A 6 p.m. curfew isn’t favored because it wouldn’t give people time to play after work. “Every recreational activity has noise,” council member Bill Revord said. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    It is not as if the Giants had to re-sign Dalvin Tomlinson, although it would have been nice. It is not as if the Giants had to land a starting wide receiver on the first day of the NFL free agency legal tampering period, but it would have been appreciated. It is not if the Giants on Day 1 had to come to contract terms with Bud Dupree or Leonard Floyd or Trey Hendrickson, but it surely would have helped their pass-rush. The first day was more about what the Giants did not do, because re-signing Austin Johnson and getting running back Devontae Booker secured are not moves to assuage anyone’s fears that the Giants’ salary-cap restraints will lead to an uninspiring haul. Johnson was a backup with the Giants in 2020 and Booker has been an NFL backup for five years, turns 29 in May and is expected to once again be a backup, with Saquon Barkley’s return from injury. The Giants certainly did not “win” opening day. That does not matter much or at all, as long as the...
    A man shows AirPods Pro at an Apple store on East Nanjing Road on October 30, 2019 in Shanghai, China. Apple's new AirPods Pro with active noise cancellation are on sale on October 30 in China.Wang Gang | VCG | Getty Images Apple said on Friday that it's replacing AirPods Pro headphones that have sound problems. These problems include a static or crackling sound that increases in loud environments and issues with active noise cancellation. Apple said AirPod Pros made after October 2020 don't have the issue. Owners who experience problems can contact Apple online or make an appointment at an Apple store to get their AirPods Pro replaced for free. Only devices that are confirmed to have the issue will be replaced. The replacement only applies to the buds, not the charging case. Apple's not offering a similar program for other AirPod models. Crackling problems with AirPod Pros were reported by users earlier this year. In May, Apple issued support documents on its website with troubleshooting advice for the issue. It was replacing those units under warranty. Apple's...
    Crunch, crunch, grind, grind. I am addicted to mouth noise. Yes, flavor and aroma are important. But for crunch lovers, foods with noisy-crisp textures offer the most satisfaction. So when I make a pureed soup, I add a crunchy garnish. I pass the garnishes at the table, so guests can add the crunch-makers at the last minute. My favorites include coarsely crumbled tortilla chips, crostini or Corn Nuts or corn nut-like kernels (toasted or roasted or fried corn kernels – my favorite brand is Inka Corn that is sold at natural food stores or Trader Joe’s). Quick Black Bean Soup With Noisy Garnishes Serves 3 to 4 Ingredients 1½ teaspoons jerk seasoning Two 15- to 16-ounce cans black beans, drained 1¼ cups vegetable broth or chicken broth 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice Garnishes: Drizzle of heavy whipping cream or sour cream; corn nuts popcorn or broken tortilla chips; fresh lime wedges; fresh cilantro Pureed black bean soup can get crunchy with a garnish of roasted corn kernels or partially crumbled tortilla chips.

    What to Watch on Wednesday: Adam Sandler returns to his comfort zone with Hubie Halloween 5 Overlooked Facts Every IRA Investor Must Know Like little brother in Paris, Korda sisters look to make some major noise at KPMG NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – For once, it’s little brother who’s getting the attention. © Provided by Golf Channel Jessica and Nelly Korda are competing in this week’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. That’s nice. But that routinely happens with a pair of sisters ranked inside the top 20 in the world. It's not often, however, that the 213th-ranked player in the world goes on a Grand Slam run that concludes with a battle against arguably the greatest ever in their sport. That happened this past week to Sebastian Korda, who faced Rafa Nadal in the fourth round of the French Open. Nadal won, rather easily, 6-1, 6-1, 6-2. But you don’t beat Nadal on clay and certainly not at Roland Garros, where he’s an unfathomable 12-time champion. The thought of winning that match, for Sebastian, seemed to be riding in the passenger seat of this...
    DENVER (AP) — Broncos quarterback Drew Lock felt like he was at the library, whispering in the huddle at empty Empower Field so the Tennessee Titans couldn’t eavesdrop. All the vacant seats at Gillette Stadium had Patriots star Julian Edelman reminiscing about his time in junior college. Aaron Rodgers capitalized on the silenced Gjallarhorn in Minneapolis to repeatedly draw defenders offside with his signature hard count, something that’s next to impossible in the normal din of a packed US Bank Stadium, which was unoccupied last weekend. The coronavirus pandemic that has altered the sports landscape from youth leagues to the pros resulted in just two teams permitting spectators on the NFL’s opening weekend. The Super Bowl champion Chiefs allowed 16,940 fans into 77,000-seat Arrowhead Stadium for their season kickoff against Houston, and the Jaguars allowed 16,800 fans for their game against the Colts on Sunday, although only 14,100 fans showed up. The 16 teams who opened on the road have their home openers in Week 2 that began with the Browns allowing 6,000 fans into FirstEnergy Stadium for their...
    Arizona residents fight for compensation for nuclear tests McDonalds Travis Scott campaign is a brilliant marketing ploy that creates massive buzz — without adding a single menu item Week 1 of NFL broadcasts included some issues implementing fake crowd noise The NFL is essentially the last major sport to return to action, and with that their respective broadcast production. And while NBC, FOX, and CBS have all been back at it with other sports throughout quarantine, it’s still understandable that some of the wrinkles and changes required by the pandemic will take some time to work out, especially with no preseason. © Provided by Awful Announcing A prime example: networks pumping in fake crowd noise. That’s something we debated a few months back, and since then it’s become fairly standard, despite not always working well. (Virtual fans are also now a thing, but only FOX elected to use them this week, and even then just for one game as a test run.) This week saw broadcasts struggle at times with volume and timing, which was to be expected. Still,...
    Sainted Oh oh – here I was nauseated, sweating profusely, about ready to puke – and my nitroglycerine tablets were elsewhere. Our young friend Rehar the Safety Guy, an EMT, had admonished me to have my nitro on my person at all times. “Your meds will do you no good sitting on the kitchen shelf,” Rehar had said. Fortunately, fellow golfer Darrell had his little nitro container in his pocket – and I was soon out of trouble. So SAINTED be Darrell, an old U.S. Navy medic, nurse practitioner and EMT – and thanks also to the St. Paul firemen who were nearby and checked into my situation – and thanks also to the beautiful bartender who got me icewater and a cold bar rag for my neck. All this at Neumann’s Bar in North St Paul on a very hot 90-degree Monday. A final thanks to golfer Pat who followed me as I drove home and arrived safely. Thanks again. And I will learn to carry my nitro on my person. Oh yes – the beverages and burgers...
    Officials in San Francisco are working to figure out a way to quiet a low hum coming from the famed Golden Gate Bridge that has become annoying to some residents. SFGate.com reported Wednesday that the noise was first reported on June 5. The culprit is reportedly the northwest winds hitting the bridge's sidewalk railings that have recently been installed in a retrofitting. The Marin Independent Journal reported earlier this week that some residents at a meeting on Friday said the noise that was produced sounded like torture and caused them physiological distress. Ewa Bauer-Furbush, the chief engineer for the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, said at the meeting that engineers were unaware that the sound would be produced, according to the Journal. Consultants have been asked to help solve the issue.Edmund DeMarche is a senior news editor for FoxNews.com. Follow him on Twitter @EDeMarche.
    Veterinarians are pleading for an end to the nightly roar of fireworks in New York City, warning that the loud blasts could cause more than just anxiety for pets -- it could be fatal. Cats, specifically, are at risk of developing life-threatening urethral obstructions from fear due to the incessant pyrotechnics, experts told The New York Post. “The stress of fireworks right now is a lot on pets,” said Dr. Natara Loose of The Neighborhood Vet in Brooklyn. Male felines especially can get stressed out by loud noises, affecting their bladders to the point where they’re unable to urinate. (iStock) Male felines especially can get stressed out by loud noises, affecting their bladders to the point where they’re unable to urinate. “What ends up happening is they get an infection in the bladder and their urethra gets spasms… they get a functional obstruction and that can be fatal for them,” said Loose, a veterinarian of 17 years. Warning signs of the potentially deadly condition include running in and out of the litter pan, going in places where they don’t...
    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The Fourth of July is still more than a week away, but communities across the Bay Area have already been listening to fireworks for weeks. And humans aren't the only ones losing sleep over the nightly noise. Animals at local zoos are having trouble too."We've had some really loud ones," said Colleen Kinzley, the Director of Animal Care, Conservation, and Research at the Oakland Zoo. "I actually live here on the zoo grounds and last night it really caught my attention."RELATED: Bay Area cities see increase in illegal firework activity, July Fourth show almost every nightKinzley says the explosion of fireworks has been scaring their animals and sending them into hiding. "The giraffe and eland, we'll see that startle response, where they'll kind of take off across the exhibit.""The chimpanzees and the baboons we call a fear bark, and so they're making that fearful vocalization, it's an alarm call really. They feel like something's wrong, they're in danger. Making that vocalization to let the whole troop know that there's danger."The zoo's birds have been particularly sensitive...
