SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey Responds To Jim Harbaugh’s “Whining” Subtweet

first_imgJim Harbaugh addresses a group of reporters. Jim HarbaughYouTube/Jim HarbaughThe war of words between Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh and the SEC continues. After Jim Harbaugh blatantly subtweeted about the SEC “whining” over his upcoming spring football team trip to IMG Academy, the conference’s commissioner Greg Sankey has responded. From“I’m not going to reduce what is an important conversation to some childhood use of Twitter,” he said. “This is an important issue.”It doesn’t sound like the SEC will be able to block Harbaugh from doing what he wants this spring, so he’ll win this round. Even if the conference successfully changes spring football rules, Harbaugh’s not going to stop pushing the boundaries, no matter what schools and leagues it annoys.[]last_img read more

Mnuchin Plane request was about national security

first_imgWASHINGTON – Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday the initial request for use of a government plane for his European trip last month was about national security and not his own personal convenience on his honeymoon.Mnuchin said as a member of the president’s National Security Council he needed a secure communication link with Washington and his staff put in a request for use of an Air Force jet for his honeymoon trip with his wife Louise Linton to Scotland, France and Italy.But he said it was just an option being explored and once it became clear he could obtain secure communications links without a government plane, the request was withdrawn.“Let me just set the record straight. First of all, the government never paid for any of my personal travel,” Mnuchin said at a conference sponsored by Politico. “This had nothing to do with convenience. This was purely about national security.”Mnuchin denied reports that he and his wife used a government plane to travel to Kentucky so they could view last month’s solar eclipse. He said the trip had originally been scheduled for a different time and added that he was not very interested in the celestial spectacle in the first place.“You know, people in Kentucky took this stuff very serious,” he told the conference. “Being a New Yorker and (living for a time in) California, I was like, the eclipse? Really? I don’t have any interest in watching the eclipse.”He did view the event with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell as part of a visit to Fort Knox, where the nation has $200 billion worth of gold stored. He said he scrapped a staff plan to view it from the roof of a building at Fort Knox and instead looked at it briefly from the ground using a pair of eclipse glasses that someone handed him.Asked by the moderator if it was an “eclipse boondoggle,” Mnuchin said, “We went to see For Knox …. Fort Knox is a symbol of the economic might of our country.”President Donald Trump said he had “total confidence” in his Treasury secretary.“I have known him a very long time,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One after viewing hurricane damage in Florida. “He is a very straight shooter …. He’s a very honourable man.”Treasury’s Office of Inspector General, however, confirmed Thursday that it was looking into “all requests for and use of government aircraft” at Treasury.The Kentucky trip sparked controversy after Mnuchin’s wife posted a photo on Instagram that showed Mnuchin and Linton stepping off the government jet. In her post, Linton included hashtags of various luxury designers she was wearing, which prompted criticism from an Oregon mother of three who wrote “glad we could pay for your little getaway.”“Pretty sure the amount we sacrifice per year is a lot more than you’d be willing to sacrifice if the choice was yours,” Linton wrote back.Linton later apologized for her comments.Treasury secretaries in the past have flown commercial on domestic trips but have used Air Force jets on official travel overseas.___This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Linton’s first name. It’s Louise, not Louis.last_img read more

Federal budget to unveil incentive for 5week leave for second parent official

first_imgOTTAWA – The upcoming federal budget will include a five-week, use-it-or-lose-it incentive for new dads to take parental leave and share the responsibilities of raising their young child, The Canadian Press has learned.In recent days, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has mused about just such an additional parental leave for the second parent.The goal behind the measure — to be included in Tuesday’s budget — is to give parents more incentive to share child-rearing responsibilities so that new moms can more easily enter the workforce, said a government official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the budget details have yet to be made public.The government has been under increasing pressure from advocates to make further changes to Canada’s parental leave policies.Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s budget is expected to have a strong focus on gender equality and on finding new ways to help more women enter the workforce — not only as a matter of fairness, but also as a way to bolster the entire economy.A recently released briefing note prepared for Morneau said Canadian women with children are less involved in the labour market than their counterparts in many of the industrialized countries in the OECD.In general, the participation rate of women in Canada’s job market is largely unchanged from where it was in the early 2000s, said the memo, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.The idea of parental leave for a second parent would be similar to a policy in Quebec, which is the only province that pays for leave for new fathers. Quebec’s system provides up to five weeks of paid leave to new fathers and covers up to 70 per cent of their income.The Liberals have heard from experts that the popular program in Quebec should be replicated at the federal level.They’ve also been urged to raise the value of benefits paid out for parents who opt for an 18-month parental leave, and to provide low-income families with access to a six-month leave option with a higher rate of income replacement.Some have also recommended making leaves available to people who aren’t considered a primary caregiver, such as a grandparent.Earlier this week, Trudeau said making it easier for fathers to take time off to care for a newborn would help remove workforce barriers for women that are created by the expectation that they should take on the primary child-rearing role.There is anecdotal evidence that women who are of child-bearing age or are pregnant are passed over for jobs or promotions, even though such actions are prohibited under the Canadian Human Rights Act.Trudeau, who was speaking at a forum in Ahmedabad, India, said his government would consider parental-leave changes, specifically “leave that can only be taken by the second parent, in most cases the father.” He said it would be “a use-it-or-lose-it” model.The prime minister also suggested the leave could include, for instance, a partner in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transge+nder relationships.“Whatever format you have, that path is removing some of the barriers and the obligations and the expectations that hold women back in the workforce, so there are a lot of things to do,” he said.Trudeau’s government has been paying closer attention to parental leave options since some of their earlier changes received a cool welcome late last year.Under rules that came into effect in December, new parents can spread 12 months of employment insurance benefits over 18 months, even though experts, labour and business groups expressed concern the program would only benefit families with higher incomes.Last year’s budget pegged the cost of the measure at $152 million over five years and $27.5 million a year afterwards.An analysis of recently released census data by the Vanier Institute of the Family found fathers are increasingly taking more time off after the birth of a child. In a report last month, the institute found 30 per cent of new fathers in 2016 reported they took, or intended to take, parental leave, up from three per cent in 2000.Much of the national increase was due to Quebec’s program. In that province, 80 per cent of fathers claimed or planned to take parental leave in 2016, almost triple the 28 per cent recorded in 2005.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitterlast_img read more

Conservatives say Liberals fail to be transparent with canola farmers

first_img“Today, the Liberals members of the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-food blocked opposition attempts to get answers on the Canada-China trade dispute. It is now crystal clear that the Liberals do not have a plan to restore Canadian canola exports to China.”According to the Conservatives, canola growers are getting extremely concerned about the embargo on canola and are worried about how this will affect them.“Conservatives have heard from canola growers loud and clear. They are extremely concerned that if the Chinese government’s trade embargo is not lifted, there will be massive ramifications on their families and well-being.”The Conservatives are calling on the Liberal Government to do the right thing and take action on this file before further damage is done to the Canadian canola market. OTTAWA, O.N. – The Federal Conservatives have put out a release claiming that the Liberals are failing to be transparent with canola farmers.Luc Berthold, Shadow Minister for Agriculture and Agri-food, and Randy Hoback, Deputy Shadow Minister for International Trade, say the Liberals are blocking opposition attempts to get answers on the Canada-China trade dispute.The Conservatives also feel that the Liberals have no plans on restoring exports to China.last_img read more

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor to make first NFL start

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor is scheduled to make his first NFL start. Pryor, who’s seen little action for the Oakland Raiders, is slated to start at quarterback in Sunday’s season-finale against the San Diego Chargers. The team announced the development through the Raiders’ official Twitter account, @OAKLAND. “Head Coach Dennis Allen names @TerrellePryor staring QB for Sunday,” the tweet read. Pryor was given the nod over former USC quarterback and 2004 Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart after Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer suffered a bruised lung and broken ribs in a 17-6 loss against the Carolina Panthers last Sunday.  In his NFL career, the 6-foot-6, 230-pound signal-caller has completed 1-of-2 passes for five yards and rushed once for two yards. It’s Pryor’s first start since the 2011 Allstate Sugar Bowl, which OSU defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks, 31-26. In what would be his last outing as a Buckeye, the Jeannette, Pa., native amassed 336 yards of total offense and was named the game’s MVP. Under the direction of former OSU coach Jim Tressel, Pryor and the Buckeyes finished the year 12-1 with a Big Ten Championship. The season, though, has since been vacated because of NCAA violations stemming from the program’s “Tattoo-Gate” scandal. Pryor, who was one of five players suspended for the first five games of 2011 because of his involvement in trading tattoos for Buckeye memorabilia, opted to forgo his senior season in response to mounting allegations and a separate investigation regarding his use of multiple automobiles while in Columbus. Pryor, who arrived on campus in 2008 as arguably the nation’s most heralded recruit in recent memory, helped guide the Buckeyes to a 31-4 record as the team’s starting quarterback, a role he assumed against Troy on Sept. 20, 2008. In addition to the his Sugar Bowl performance, Pryor earned MVP honors en route to a 26-17 win against Oregon in the 2010 Rose Bowl. The game, which was dubbed by some as Pryor’s coming-of-age party, saw Pryor throw for 266 yards and two touchdowns on 23-of-37 attempts. He also ran for 72 yards on 20 touches. Pryor amassed 8,341 yards of total offense and 76 touchdowns as a Buckeye. Oakland (4-11) is set to face the Chargers Sunday at 4:25 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. read more

Mens Volleyball Ohio State drop second league match against Purdue Fort Wayne

Redshirt sophomore Jake Hanes (16) anticipates making contact with the ball at the game against George Mason on Jan. 18 at St. John Arena in Columbus. Credit: Ethan Clewell | Senior Reporter.Playing its first match as an unranked squad since 2014, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team fell to No. 15 Purdue Fort Wayne, its second conference loss in as many matches. After winning a close first set, the Mastodons used a kill and two aces by redshirt senior opposite hitter Colton Stone to break the second set wide open, pushing their lead to 12-7. The lead grew to as many as 10 points after an Ohio State service error, with the score 23-13. The second set, much like the rest of the match, was less about Ohio State’s struggles than it was about the dominance of Purdue Fort Wayne, as the Mastodons terminated 13 of their 20 attack opportunities for a .450 hitting percentage, adding three aces. Junior outside hitter Pelegrin Vargas led the Mastodons with 15 kills, five block assists and an ace, while Stone added six kills and three aces. The Buckeye offense hit at a measly .167 clip, managing 30 kills on 72 total attacks, while adding three aces. Freshman middle blocker Ethan Talley had 10 kills on 14 attacks for a team-high .714 hitting percentage. Sophomore outside hitter Martin Lallemand was the only other Buckeye with more than five kills, finishing six and adding an ace and a block assist. Ohio State always seemed to be playing from behind, and without a consistent offense, they relied mostly on the 39 total errors committed by the Mastodons to stay in the game. In the third set, Purdue Fort Wayne used a 7-1 run to build a 20-16 lead over the Buckeyes, but four errors by the Mastodons brought the Buckeyes even at 20. Kills by Vargas and Stone finished off the Buckeyes, leading Purdue Fort Wayne to a 25-22 win. Both sophomore opposite hitter Jake Hanes and senior setter Sanil Thomas were out for the match with injury, the third straight match each had missed. Ohio State did have one player return from injury as freshman setter Luke Lentin was able to recover in time for the match. Lentin totalled 27 assists and three digs, while adding a kill and an ace for the Buckeyes. Lentin’s return allowed freshman libero Parker Mikesch to return to his regular duties as a libero alongside redshirt senior Aaron Samarin. Mikesch has spent the past two matches serving as the team’s full-time setter in the absence of Lentin, Thomas and junior setter Andrew Hillman. Ohio State will face No. 6 UC Santa Barbara at 7 p.m. on Friday and No. 1 Long Beach State at 10 p.m. on Saturday in Long Beach, California. read more

Mens Lacrosse No 9 Ohio State continues hot start with 148 win

Then-sophomore attack Jack Jasinski heads for the goal in the fourth quarter during the first round of the NCAA tournament against Loyola Maryland on May 14, 2017. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Former Oller ReporterIn a game all about momentum, the No. 9 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team strung together 10 unanswered goals to pull away and remain undefeated in a 14-8 victory against Hofstra in Hempstead, New York on Saturday.Ohio State (6-0) did what it does well: scoring early, putting up four straight goals on Hofstra to begin the game. Two of the goals came from junior attack and team-leading goal scorer Tre LeClaire, with both assists coming from sophomore attack/midfield Colby Smith.That hot streak transferred right over to Hofstra (2-4) as the Pride answered back with two goals to end the first quarter and continued that momentum in the second, scoring two straight again to tie the Buckeyes with four unanswered goals of its own. Every goal for the Pride came from a different player in the run.After the Pride’s breakout, the rest of the second quarter was all Buckeyes. Ohio State scored five straight before halftime to make it 9-4 at the half. The five goals included two from freshman attack Jack Myers and LeClaire’s third of the game.Though the Buckeyes had the lead at the half, the anticipated face off battle between Hofstra’s sophomore midfield/forward Brian Heber and Ohio State’s sophomore midfield Justin Inacio was in favor of Herber 8-7. Herber finished with 14 wins on 26 faceoffs, while Inacio won 10 of his 18 attempts.Although the faceoff may have been won in the second half, the game quickly became about Ohio State’s dominance in the third quarter. Ohio State scored four more goals from four different players — LeClaire scoring his fourth of the game, Myers getting his third to complete the hat trick and senior midfielder Jack Jasinski got his first of two.Leclaire is up to 20 goals on the season to led the team, while Jasinski is No. 2 with 16.With the game looking out of hand, the Pride came roaring back, again scoring four straight goals. But it came too late,  ending the game 14-8. No. 9 Ohio State comes back home to Ohio Stadium against No. 8 Denver at 1 p.m. Saturday. read more
