Rays hope to get wet and wild and finish the playoffs at Tropicana Field Tue, 21 Sep 2021 14:43:18 +0000

NS. PETERSBURG – The Rays have had a lot to celebrate in recent years.

In 2019, the final year BC (Before Coronavirus), their return to the playoffs, then a wildcard game win in Oakland, was crowned last weekend in Toronto for the first time in six years.

During last year’s pandemic, fanless and entertaining season, they booked a return trip to the playoffs in Baltimore and then took the coveted American League East title after beating the Mets in New York.

Although the Rays came home for the extended first-round playoff series and the Blue Jays swept away with limited family members, given Major League Baseball’s mandate for muted and socially distant celebrations, as well as the team housed at the Renaissance Vinoy Hotel Quarantine.

Then they made their way to the MLB bubble in San Diego, where they defeated the Yankees in the AL Division Series and the Astros in the AL Championship Series and were similarly restricted from partying at Petco Park. Then it went on to Arlington, Texas, where they lost in the World Series to the Dodgers.

But the Rays stepped into the game Tuesday night with a chance – they needed a win and a Yankee loss and A’s – to do something they haven’t done since the historic Game 162 drama festival in 2011: get a playoff spot at Tropicana Field and party in front of their fans.

“It would mean anything,” said midfielder Kevin Kiermaier, the longest-serving Rays player and team leader. “I sit here and always say in spring training that we’re just trying to do a show for our fans all season, give people a reason to come to the games and fill that space and really see what for a special group we have available.

“And here we are in that position, six months later from all of the spring training interviews, and we’re at one particular point in the best division in baseball, I don’t care what you say. I don’t care.” It’s so special to be part of it. If we could do it in front of our home fans for the first time – especially for a guy like me, I’ve been here since (2014), part of the teams that didn’t have the best records – it would mean the world to me personally.

“But I know what it would mean for everyone in this clubhouse and shelter, including all the fans in the stands. Hopefully we can step on the plate and let it happen. It would be a memory that no one can take away from us. “

Something the Rays have never done is take the league title at home, which if they win enough – and the runner-up Red Sox lose enough – they could get there by the trop final of the regular season on Sunday.

The three previous times they finished as Beasts of the East, they toast before their larger budget rivals as visitors.

They were in Detroit in 2008 when they lost an afternoon game, then got back together after eating or visiting the nearby casino in Comerica Park. They switched from street clothes to party clothes (shorts, t-shirts, goggles) to – of all things – make sure the Yankees eliminate the Red Sox in a twice delayed rain game that ended just before 1am

In 2010, they were playing an afternoon final in Kansas City when they got the news – through pitcher David Price running from the clubhouse to the dugout, screaming at the top of his mouth – that they’d won the title because the Yankees had lost (the Rays held the tie-break). But that wasn’t enough as the Rays lost 2-0, rallied in ninth place, and then won in 12 innings to directly win the division, which in the opinion of then manager Joe Maddon was important to them.

And last year they were at Citi Field where they took the title with three games left in the shortened season by sticking to beating the Mets.

The Rays celebrated by popping confetti cannons instead of champagne bottles and dousing each other with silly string instead of beer. There were also some cigars smoked in the dugout and a parking lot dance party that helped introduce the world to the greatness of Randy Arozarena and Brett Phillips.

“I’m completely dry right now, which I’m not a big fan of,” said Kiermaier at the time. “But you have to adapt to what is required of us.”

Now they hope to have two wet and wild parties at home by the end of the week.

“I think we can taste it – I’d be lying to you if I told you the dressing room isn’t really good right now,” said rookie pitcher Shane McClanahan. “It would be great (to clinch at home). (Last Friday) night it had a taste of playoff atmosphere. The place rocked. The place was full. And I would lie to you if I told you we don’t talk about it in the dugout. So it’s really exciting to have the opportunity to do this in front of the big fans (Tampa Bay Area). That is really what we want. “

Manager Kevin Cash, who seemed itchy about a possible clinch even when answering a question, nonetheless gave the house party tacit approval. “I don’t like to talk about it before it happens,” he said, “but yeah, you want to do special things in front of your fans at your ballpark.”

Also, emergency responder Andrew Kittredge, a Ray since 2017, said there is a natural curiosity about what it would be like.

“I’m really excited to see what the clubhouse will hopefully look like when everything is covered with tarpaulin,” said Kittredge. “Hopefully we’ll get a chance here. If not, it will be special when we have the chance to shine no matter where it is. But it would be great to do it here. “

The chairman of the People’s Party of Canada, Maxime Bernier, loses his seat – again Tue, 21 Sep 2021 03:45:14 +0000

Maxime Bernier, the leader of the People’s Party of Canada, failed to win the seat in his riding from Beauce, Que. for the second straight election, despite growing support for his party in recent weeks.

Bernier lost his ride on Monday to Conservative Party candidate Richard Lehoux, who defeated the PPC leader in the last federal election in 2019. Bernier previously held the seat as a member of the Conservative Party of Canada for 13 years until he stepped down in 2018 to start the PPC.

Support for the PPC has risen sharply in the past few weeks, but that hasn’t translated into seats in the government. As of 10:53 p.m. ET, the PPC improved its performance in 2019 with 4.9 percent of the popular vote but no seats in government.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to continue this struggle in Parliament, but we will continue this struggle to unite Canadians under the umbrella of freedom.Maxime Bernier to the supporters

“When the next elections come we will be even better prepared and this time we will win seats in parliament.

Despite not winning seats, the growth in popular support is an improvement for a party that was on the verge of extinction after failing to win a seat in the 2019 election and receiving 1.6 percent of the vote.

Bernier’s party ran a campaign mainly focused on resisting COVID-19 lockdowns and vaccine mandates. The PPC party is also against policies related to multiculturalism and promises to significantly reduce the number of immigrants and refugees admitted to Canada. The party also promised to withdraw government intervention related to climate change, saying “Climate change alarmism is based on flawed models”.

An Ipsos poll in the run-up to election night showed that the party is expected to receive 4 percent of the votes cast. Support for the PPC reached 7 percent in Saskatchewan and Manitoba and 6 percent in Alberta, according to Ipsos. A Leger poll found that voting intent for the PPC party reached 6 percent nationwide, and up to 10 percent in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The ArtParty of the Anton Art Center returns to the Clem – Macomb Daily Mon, 20 Sep 2021 17:45:04 +0000

The ArtParty was held as a virtual fundraiser last year, and while they still raised $ 20,000 for the Anton Art Center in downtown Mount Clemens, it just wasn’t the same.

On September 23, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., it returns as the party everyone will remember – and since it’s already its 30th year – it promises to be the best ever.

“There will be a lot of food to try,” said Phil Gilchrist, general manager of the Anton Art Center, referring to the Flavor Festival portion of Flavor by Macomb of the fundraiser that supports the program at the Art Center. “We have 22 different restaurants on the way.”

Each September, community and art center members gather together with civic leaders, business owners, art lovers, and more for the annual fundraiser that supports the center’s mission to enrich and inspire people of all ages through art.

Tickets are $ 75.

These include an evening outdoors with fun and friendly conversation and the traditional silent auction with a variety of unique arts, crafts and other valuable items to bid on. These items are often donated by renowned community artists or local businesses. The bidding on the silent auction items is already running online.

The entertainment at ArtParty includes live music, which not only provides a beautiful backdrop for the get-together, but also provides an opportunity to dance the night away. The party will take place in the parking lot next to the Anton Art Center – which is open exclusively for a private after-hour for ArtParty visitors.

In addition to the art market, guests of the Art Center have the opportunity to see “Dreamscape”, an exhibition on the first floor showing the works of Luzhen Qiu and Cathy Jacobs. On the second floor, in the Petitpren Community Gallery, the annual Artists’ Choice Members Show is shown.

“After such a long year of adapting to the pandemic, we look forward to returning to face-to-face events,” Gilchrist said. “The Art Party is a great event that so many are looking forward to. It supports the arts and the Anton Art Center, but it’s also a great time with great people. “

Of course, a good party is not complete without food and refreshments and at this event – the Taste of Macomb – the party is taken to a whole new level. Each restaurant or caterer, and there will be dozens of them present, will serve their typical dishes.

ArtParty guests will enjoy strolling through the tents and sampling from each restaurant and caterer and are encouraged to vote for the best dish and presentation, which will be given out at the end of the evening. In addition to the large selection of starters and dishes, admission to the fundraiser includes free drinks for the evening, which is hosted by the bar sponsor Orleans Sports Café.

The First State Bank, which acts as the presenting sponsor of the 30th annual ArtParty, plays a decisive role in the success of the night. Also noteworthy is the Honorary Committee of ArtParty 2021, including: Gebran and Suzanne Anton, Jinny Curatolo, KC Curatolo, Denise Anton David and Rick David, Dr. Julie Dichtel, Gerry and Laura Fournier, Mary Anne and Gene Gargaro, Gene Lovell, Terri North, Larry Powe and Mary Heston-Powe, Macomb County Treasurers Larry Rocco and Linda and Jim Sawyer. Oakland University also sponsored The Wandering Sinner, Gerry and Laura Fournier as entertainment sponsor, Crest Lincoln as decor sponsor, and Printing by Johnson as printer sponsor.

“It really is a great party,” said Gilchrist.

To purchase tickets, visit or call 586-469-8666.

The ArtParty on Thursday will take place in an open-air party tent next to the Anton Art Center at Macomb Place 125 in Mount Clemens. The Anton Art Center will continue to monitor COVID-19 infection rates and will follow appropriate precautionary measures recommended by the relevant health authorities.

Dinner party style Emmys are showing little sign of pandemic restrictions Mon, 20 Sep 2021 05:19:31 +0000

While the television top-tier awards ceremony on Sunday once again strayed from the look of the primetime Emmys of yore, it gave the small, obvious impression of being constrained by the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

So much so, that the night’s first host, comic book actor-writer Seth Rogen, joked that he found the website uncomfortable, though, from hundreds of attendees who had gathered in an enclosed space with no visible signs of social distancing Vaccinations were required. “Let me start by saying that there are far too many in this small room. Roe, glowing in a bright orange sports jacket, nervous for the first few minutes of the show. “We are currently in a hermetically sealed tent. I would not have gotten around to it.”

From the inaugural hip-hop song and dance number “Just a Friend,” performed as a lively fellow singer under the direction of the show’s host, Cedric the Entertainer, organizers tried, despite ongoing public health and travel Entertainment value and shine projecting limitations. Show producers tried in advance in media interviews to reassure viewers that the 73rd annual Emmys would indeed be held safely, even if they worked to render the show to look like a glamorous, star-studded dinner party https: // www .reuters .com / lifestyle / royals-underdogs-friends-baby-yoda-its-time-emmys-2021-09-19.

Though attendees’ faces were revealed on camera, they were masked during commercial breaks – a routine many screen artists got used to as they returned to production sets amid the pandemic. The show even made COVID-19 security laugh when comedian and host Ken Jeong was denied entry by a security officer because he lacked adequate vaccination records.

“WE ARE ALL VAXED” “Dude, I didn’t get four booster shots to show them remotely,” Jeong insisted during the gag to a security guard, before winning “Saturday Night Live” as the winner for the best variety show. Sketch series announced.

According to manufacturers and Cedric, the precautions were very real. “We’re all annoyed,” said the presenter to the audience at the beginning of the show. “I was upset and I didn’t respond, Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s boyfriend,” a reference to a headline-making but unsubstantiated claim about vaccination side effects from the Trinidadian rap star.

The CBS Network show was broadcast from an air-conditioned outdoor tent at the LA Live entertainment complex in downtown Los Angeles, where 500 TV luminaries were seated at tables, vaccinated and tested, rather than in the auditorium, which was usually filled with far more affairs . It was one of the larger personal get-togethers of celebrities for an entertainment awards show since the pandemic began in early 2019, and was a far cry from last year’s largely virtual Zoom-like Emmy show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

Seating for the event on Sunday was limited to no more than four tickets per nomination. And due to ongoing travel restrictions, many Emmy contenders joined the negotiations via satellite from London. A contingent of British nominees, including actors, producers, writers and directors of one of the night’s big winners, The Crown, gathered at Soho House nightclub in London, eight hours ahead of the Pacific time zone for them in the middle of the night.

The show, which was repeated and seamlessly cut to London throughout the show as “The Crown”, which traces the history of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and the royal family, garnered awards for best actor and best actress in a drama, among other things and a best drama series. Politics, which increasingly prevailed as the seasonal motif of the Hollywood awards ceremonies, were largely avoided.

One of the few notable exceptions was when CBS host “The Late Show” Stephen Colbert took the stage to present the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama – the winner was Gillian Anderson for “The Crown” – and forged California’s youngest Recall governorship election. Colbert’s show later won an Emmy for broadcast live on Election Night 2020.

In one of the night’s most memorable acceptance speeches, Renée Elise Goldsberry of Broadway hit musical “Hamilton,” which won for a Best-Recorded Vaudeville Special, praised the key cultural role television played during the pandemic while creating a tone of hope the imminent return of Broadway triggers. “TV gave us the platform to get together and put on a show. Look around, look around, ”she said, alluding to the lyrics of the“ Hamilton ”song“ That Would Be Enough ”. “The curtains go back up and the lights go back on.”

“The deck is stacked against” Green Party, especially with the platform’s late release, experts say Sat, 18 Sep 2021 23:10:05 +0000

While the Greens have secured their place in parliament as the country’s fifth political party for the past decade, their future in the political landscape seems to have been marred by struggle and controversy. That could suggest why the party released a platform less than a week before the election.

The Greens secured their first seat in the lower house in 2011 through then-chairwoman Elizabeth May. While their number of seats grew to three in the 2019 elections, May resigned as chairman immediately afterwards. In 2020, Annamie Paul was elected party leader, although the Greens have since been consumed by contestation. The Federal Council, a governing body appointed by party members, attempted to withdraw Paul’s party membership, a matter that has been brought to arbitration and has since been blocked. The dispute is now a matter for the courts and the party has now elected a new Federal Council. In June, MP Jenica Atwin crossed the Liberals over the Greens’ Middle East policy and reduced the party’s number of seats to two.

The internal quarrel seems to go beyond the party’s tension with its leader. The globe and the post received a copy of an internal report by the Greens which found that the party had significant problems with racism and transphobia and that the organization had not effectively resolved the problem.

It remains to be seen how the challenges within the climate change-focused Greens will affect the upcoming elections.

The Greens’ climate change policy is strong, but they have left no mark

Gerald Baier, associate professor of political science at the University of British Columbia, says the Greens are contenders when it comes to policies specifically related to climate change, though it doesn’t look like a breakthrough will happen if the Canadians break out Polls on September 20th.

“You have been involved in climate change issues for a long time, and these have a more prominent place in the elections than in the past,” he says. “The Greens are jointly responsible for ensuring that this is promoted. The question is whether the party has served its purpose in addressing these issues or whether they will have a real place in the House of Commons in the future. “

Cara Camcastle, a lecturer in the Political Science Department at Simon Fraser University, says the Greens won the election.

“The Greens who were elected in BC have been elected several times,” she says. “Elizabeth May is well known in her community … she and Paul Manly are experts in criticizing the government and speaking out on climate change issues, which is a top priority for Canadians.”

But Baier says if a party leader has lost the trust of candidates and campaigners, it can drain the energy of what they can do locally to win seats.

“It has been successful in finding mounts like Elizabeth Mays riding that they have a good chance of,” says Baier.

The deck is stacked against them so they must play the game that is dealt them. So that means finding a way and hoping to build on that dynamic in the future.Gerald Baier, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of British Columbia

What do the Greens stand for?

Less than a week before the election, the party released a platform the core of which is focused on aggressively reducing greenhouse gases to “net zero” by 2050 – something no other party has promised – and removing pipelines.

During her campaign in August, chairwoman Annamie Paul said one was coming, but that the party’s environmental policy was the same as it outlined earlier in 2019. She also urged Canadians to resort to online research if they wanted to learn more about the Greens’ climate change policy.

Under the heading “Our Vision” on the website of the Greens, the party promises to “take sensible measures to avoid a climate catastrophe”.

Some important points are:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent by 2030 and to zero by 2050

  • End all fossil fuel industry subsidies

  • Lead a movement to end fossil fuels, starting with the federal government

  • Coal-based power generation will be phased out quickly and transition to a prosperous decarbonised economy

  • Invest in a Canadian grid strategy to deliver 100 percent renewable electricity across Canada

The Greens have also vowed to abolish the electoral system from the beginning, to develop and protect the health system, and to combat homelessness. They have pledged to work with other parties to tackle unmanageable housing costs by declaring a national housing emergency.

The party has also promised to create a guaranteed basic income and work to build at least 300,000 affordable homes over the next decade.

After his misogynistic comment, Rakhi Sawant knocked out party spokesman Aam Aadmi, Raghav Chadha Sat, 18 Sep 2021 09:46:24 +0000

Actress Rakhi Sawant is known for simply wearing her heart on her sleeve. She is never afraid to call a spade a spade. She has now criticized Aam Aadmi Party spokesman Raghav Chadha for his misogynistic comments.

It so happened that cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu shared a video on social media yesterday and Chadha came back to it calling him “Rakhi Sawant Of Punjab Politics”. That didn’t go down well with Sawant’s fans, who flooded social media with tweets and posts criticizing this “despicable misogyny”. It became the top trend last night and caught the attention of the actress herself.

Sawant also spoke to the media afterwards and said, “Raghav Chadha, stay away from me and my name. Mr Chadha, aap khud dekhiye aapko mere naam ki zaroorat padd gaye trending mein aane ke liye. Toh aap socho main kaise trending mein rehti hoon (Mr. Chadha, you had to use my name to trending on social media. Remember how I trend almost every other day). “

There has been no apology or comment from Chadha’s side on the entire episode.
