(AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Moments after Chicago beat Lynnwood, Washington, on Thursday in the Little League World Series, outfielder Pierce Jones looked at his phone — and had to turn it off.“I didn’t want to deal with all the notifications,” Jones said.Jones had three homers and four RBIs in Jackie Robinson West’s 12-2 victory in five innings.Manager Darold Butler the players on the all-Black team hear about the support in and around Chicago, but that they do haven’t grasped the magnitude.“I know for a fact they don’t know how big it is, or what exactly is going on at home,” Butler said. “It’s just baseball to them.”Jones homered leading off in the first inning, and also tripled in the game. Shortstop Ed Howard added a two-run homer in the second inning.Chicago scored five runs in the third inning. Logan Kruse relieved Ian Michael, and Chicago capitalized on a passed ball and other misplays behind the plate.For Chicago, pitcher Joshua Houston settled down after Lynnwood scored two in the first. Houston went four innings, striking out seven and giving up two hits.“We’re just trying to make the city proud. We’re trying to make the state proud,” Butler said. “From the batting practice we’ve been taking here and the comeback win that got us here, the kids have been very relaxed. … I felt good going into this game.”
“Studying helped me relieve some of the pressure in the world of football, and kept my brain sharp,” said the Juventus captain.But only 13 percent of footballers have a higher education compared to 53 percent of men in Europe, says FIFPro.“As a footballer, at 20 years old you feel indestructible and able to do anything in football,” said Chiellini.“But at 35 your career is more or less finished. You then have the rest of your life in front of you, and just being able to play football is not enough.“Only a few players manage to find a job in football. There’s also the risk of depression, and there are many former players with financial problems because they have not thought about what they are going to do, they have not opened their minds by studying.”The towering defender from Pisa started his career at Tuscany club Livorno before joining Roma, with a season spent on loan at Fiorentina before signing for Juventus in 2005.“As a footballer, you need to start thinking about life after football at the beginning of your career, not at the end,” added Chiellini who has also played 99 times for Italy.“If you are not sharp in matches you can’t make the quick decisions that you need to reach the top level in football.”As part of the ‘Mind the Gap’ campaign, player development managers (PDMs) will be appointed at several national player associations to help footballers prepare for life after retirement.“The statistics show each year professional footballers are not as prepared as other workers to enter the employment market outside football,” FIFPro secretary general Theo van Seggelen said.“With this campaign, we are encouraging players and player associations to work together to correct this.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000“Studying helped relieve some of the pressure in the world of football,” said Juventus and Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini © AFP/File / JAVIER SORIANOMILAN, Italy, Oct 17 – Italy and Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini urged players to think more about their careers after football on Wednesday as he helped launch an education campaign led by global players’ union FIFPro.Chiellini, 34, studied for a degree in economics and a Masters in business administration at Turin University at the same time as winning seven straight Serie A titles with Juventus from 2012.

The Roadrunners received a No. 6 national ranking in the season-ending poll put out by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. “This is the highest we’ve ever been ranked,” Brenes said. “It’s a tremendous accomplishment for our players and team, especially considering we’re talking the entire nation.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa AnitaThe Roadrunners finished 20-7-2 and registered postseason upsets over Mt. San Antonio College and L.A. Harbor. Rio Hondo was led by, among others, Carlos Lopez, Javier Delgadillo and Jeff Meyer. Whittier College has done well of late in men’s basketball. The Poets have won their past three games and tonight will take a 6-5 record into the beginning of SCIAC play. Unfortunately for Whittier, it will be traveling to Pomona-Pitzer for a game against the two-time defending conference champion Sagehens. Pomona-Pitzer is only 5-5, but it has played a very difficult nonconference schedule. Two of its losses were to UC San Diego, a Division II school, and Amherst College, which was ranked No. 4 in Division III. Rio Hondo College, after a gut-wrenching 3-2 loss to Santa Rosa last month in the state men’s soccer semifinals in Fresno, was upset because it believed it had been victim of poor officiating. Said officiating, Roadrunners coach Orlando Brenes believed, allowed Santa Rosa a free kick that resulted in the game-winning goal in overtime.

The mirrorless camera wave continues to gain momentum as Panasonic reveals two new L-mount camera models forthcoming in 2019.In what already feels like the year of the mirrorless camera — with new models coming from Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, and Blackmagic — we’ve now got yet another contender for the mirrorless title.

Their flagship camera, the Panasonic Lumix S1R, promises a 47-megapixel sensor with the now-standard 4K at 60fps and 10-bit 4:2:2 video recording. More technical details are forthcoming over the next few months, leading up to the camera’s release in 2019.47-megapixel sensor.4K at 60fps.10-bit 4:2:2 video recording.Built-in image stabilization.Tiltable LCD.High-resolution EVF.The Panasonic Lumix S1Like many of their competitors, Panasonic is developing a companion camera in the Panasonic Lumix S1 that features a 24-megapixel sensor at a lower price point, but it will still reportedly include the same 4K 60fps recording and other video specs.

Ismail Merchant, Mira Nair, Shekhar Kapur, Deepa Mehta, Gurinder Chadha. You can take all of them out of Bollywood, but can you ever take Bollywood out of them?Apparently not! These internationally acclaimed filmmakers may have achieved recognition for their work in Hollywood and around the world, but they all acknowledge their indebtedness to Indian cinema.Their films may be vastly different from the regular Bollywood fare, yet it is in darkened cinema halls across India or on borrowed Hindi film videos in immigrant homes in the U.K. that they first began their love affair with film.Mira Nair, whose Monsoon Wedding has been such a major box-office hit across the world, has always created realistic, edgy cinema from the days she made documentaries and the Oscar-nominated Salaam Bombay! Yet even when she’s making films as starkly true-to-life as Hysterical Blindness, elements of Bollywood seep in.As she explained in a lecture she delivered at the Netherlands Film Festival, “I’ve seen that the Indian films’ influence, specifically that unabashed emotional directness, the freewheeling use of music, that emphasis on elemental motivations and values, is a thread running consistently through every one of my films; even when exploring foreign worlds, I have taken the bones and flesh of those societies and tried to infuse them with the spirit of where I’m from.”Yes, no one can escape the powerful impact of Bollywood. Ask producer-director Ismail Merchant. He first brought his Bombay sensibilities to the world screen three decades ago, as one half of the elite Merchant-Ivory production company. Noted for classic literary films like Room with a View and The Bostonians, the duo’s first film ever was The Householder by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala and starring a handsome young newcomer called Shashi Kapoor.“I can remember the exact moment when I knew that I wanted to spend my life in the world of movies,” observes Merchant in his book, My Passage from India: He was 13 years old and had been invited to accompany the winsome, green-eyed actress Nimmi, a family friend, to the premiere of her first film Barsaat.He recalls, “As we drove toward the cinema in her green Cadillac convertible – quite an impressive car in India at that time – a shower of marigolds began to rain down on us. I looked up, and it seemed as though the marigolds were dropping from the night sky – thousands of golden flowers gently falling around us.By the time we emerged, the open car was full of marigolds – and still they fell as we walked into the cinema, scattering petals along the way, as crowds of people stared and called out Nimmi’s name.”After that, the magic of darkened cinema halls had him hooked, leading him and James Ivory on their Oscar laden path. Merchant has also brought his directorial talents to many screen adaptations of serious literature including Anita Desai’s In Custody and V.S. Naipaul The Mystic Masseur.If there’s ever an example of Bollywood making it big in Hollywood, it’s Shekhar Kapur, Mr. India himself. The creator of such Bollywood favorites as Mr. India and Masoom, Kapur got the attention of the West with his stark and potent Bandit Queen. He next made Elizabeth with all the kinetic color of a Bollywood film, and went on to Four Feathers Kapur was the producer for the recent Bollywood style romantic comedy The Guru, complete with dance numbers and dream scenes. He’s also the man behind Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Bombay Dreams, which after its success on London’s West End is going to be making its Broadway debut next year.Even that big Hollywood phenomenon M. Night Shyamalan of the mega box-office blockbusters may owe something to Indian cinema. As Nayay Bhushan, editor of Connect Magazine, notes, ” Shyamalan may not be Bollywood-savvy but his script for The Sixth Sense somehow exhibits elements often seen in Indian films – mysticism, the central figure of the mother, life beyond death. Bollywood may only package this with syrupy sentimentalism but Shyamalan turned it, knowingly or unknowingly, into a global cinematic phenomenon.”Gurinder Chadha’s Bend it like Beckham has certainly been a big plug for everything Indian, and according to Gitesh Pandya of Boxofficeguru.com, it was among the top 20 films in the U.S. for 17 consecutive weeks. Produced at a cost of roughly $5.5 million, the British-Indian comedy has grossed $70 million at theaters worldwide making it one of the most profitable films in recent years.Parminder Nagra, the young British Asian actress who made her debut in this film, has bagged the lead in Ella Enchanted and also will be seen in the popular TV series, ER. Keira Knightley, who plays her friend Jules Paxton, has had an even more astounding success with Pirates of the Caribbean, in which she stars with Johnny Depp and which has been breaking box office records. As for Chadha, she’s off and running to another big success: Bride and Prejudice for which she’s got Miramax. And how much more high art can you get then Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice? Based on this classic, Chadha’s film is a contemporary adaptation starring Bollywood Queen Aishwarya Rai and New Zealand actor Martin Henderson.A posse of Bombay stars like Rekha, Vivek Oberoi and Milind Soman are said to be featured in Conde Nast Traveler magazine in the September issue. And recently Amitabh Bachchan, already immortalized in wax by Madame Tussaunds, also made it to list of 100 top film stars of all time, conducted by Channel 4 television. He was listed 92nd in a list that included Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Harrison Ford, Sean Connery and Cary Grant.Indian films, both from the North and South, are winning an astounding number of awards at festivals, as the world gets to see the work of Indian directors including Deepa Mehta, Mira Nair, Shekhar Kapur and Mani Ratnam.Stars including Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Roshan Seth, Saeed Jaffrey and Gulshan Grover are acting in films internationally. According to a PTI report, Hrithik Roshan turned down an offer from Warner Bros to act in a Hollywood production of Hamlet. And yes, there was talk of Aishwarya Rai starring in a James Bond film. Every week seems to bring a fresh story of the Hollywood-Bollywood connection.So as the Bollywood behemoth continues to find acceptance across the world and as its stars become known to mainstream audiences, diehard fans can take joy in the fact that the Bollywood tamasha has only just begun!
