first_imgGophers’ senior captain thrives in both facets of the gameBaldwin has won WCHA defensive player of the month and offensive player of the week.Easton Green, Daily File PhotoSenior defender Sydney Baldwin prepares to get on the ice at Ridder Arena during the Gophers’ game against Wisconsin on Sunday, Oct. 29. Max BiegertNovember 2, 2017Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIt is not often that a player wins Western Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive Player of the Week and then WCHA Defensive Player of the Month, but Gophers senior captain Sydney Baldwin did just that. Baldwin leads the Gophers with 11 points. She is the WCHA’s top scoring defender and fourth in scoring among all WCHA players this season. She also has 34 blocked shots, 10 assists and 29 shots on goal. The 34 blocked shots leads the WCHA.She also received the WCHA offensive player of the week after the Gophers’ series against Bemidji State, where she totaled four points in two games. “I think she has improved on her defensive aspect of her game since she started and that is why it is neat to see her as the defensive player of the month,” said head coach Brad Frost. “The intensity you have to play with, the battle and compete level you have to play with is something she does day in and day out, which is great.”Baldwin said she has never been too concerned with accolades, but for someone who says that, she has a lot of them.Baldwin has played all four years, coming in as Ms. Hockey from Minnetonka, Minnesota and playing on two national championship teams. She knows what it takes to be successful and looking at the Gophers who are ranked sixth in the nation and have four losses, she realizes the team is more important than an award. “It is a really cool individual accolade, but everyone on our team can say the same in that we are more focused on the team as a whole rather than some individual accolades,” Baldwin said.  She has had to carry a much heavier load this year. The Gophers the past few weeks have been working with just four defensemen, two of those defensemen being freshman. At the beginning of the season, the Gophers were letting in too many goals to Frost’s liking, but recently their defense has tightened up thanks to Baldwin’s leadership.In the first four games of the season, the Gophers let in a total of 11 goals. In the last six games, they gave up nine. The senior captain has faced pressure to get the freshman up to speed as quickly as possible, and the stats show they’ve been coming around.“She is really the staple on our defense, she has been playing really hard and really well for us,” said Nicole Schammel. “She leads by example on the ice and it is proven with that award.”  Baldwin will look to continue to improve in her last season in a Minnesota uniform. Baldwin said she feels that in her time here at Minnesota, she has learned to lean into her strengths like blocking shots and getting more involved on the offensive. That’s proven, too, as she leads the Gophers in points.As for what she wants to do after the hockey season, Baldwin said she might look to play more hockey once she is done, but really has no idea. “That is the golden question. I have tossed around the idea of continuing to play, possibly getting a job and maybe do some traveling,” Baldwin said. “It is something I will have to figure out here as the season goes along.”Drew Cove contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_imgHowever, LAPD understands with fewer vehicles on the roadway it may provide more opportunities for speeding due to the lack of congestion. In addition, there are more children and families out walking, jogging, and crossing the road than previous years. LAPD wants to urge motorists to slow down and assist them in their efforts for speed reduction.  It is important to remember that speed limits may not even be the “safe speed”, especially when you add more pedestrians and cyclists. When you drive in a neighborhood with grades, curves, parked vehicles, etc. it creates hazards that should require a prudent driver to reduce their speed. Los Alamos County has a specific ordinance to address this issue called the “Basic Speed Rule”.No person shall drive a vehicle at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing. Consistent with the foregoing, every person shall drive at a safe and appropriate speed when approaching and crossing an intersection, when approaching and going around a curve, when approaching a hill crest, when traveling upon any narrow or winding street, and when special hazards exist with respect to pedestrians or other traffic or by reason of weather or highway conditions.LAPD wants the public to assist them in keeping the above rule in mind. LAPD also is working with Traffic & Streets to deploy speed monitoring devices in problem areas. They also have sent letters to certain neighborhoods asking for help in speed reduction. LAPS believes if they work with local citizens they can continue to keep Los Alamos safe.There is a Traffic Board zoom meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6. Cmdr. Oliver Morris will attend the meeting to hear any public comment on traffic concerns.The community is invited to attend the Zoom webinar.When: Aug 6, 2020 05:30 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)Topic: Transportation Board Monthly MeetingClick the link below to join the webinar:https://zoom.us/j/97630631133?pwd=VmhxZ2IxcnlJd2gzRlVoSGVxMURPZz09Passcode: 833325 LAPD Cpl. David Boe conducting speed enforcement near the golf course. Courtesy/LAPDLAPD News:The Los Alamos Police Department has noticed an increase in speeding concerns from the Los Alamos public over the last month. These concerns have come in a variety of forms to include; social media posts, emails, phone calls, and citizens utilizing the crime-tip submission tool on the LAPD website.LAPD wants to take the opportunity to assure the public these concerns are being addressed and it is an area of focus for traffic safety in the community. Extra Patrols have been communicated to each shift sergeant who is responsible for ensuring their units respond to areas of concern.Between March 1 and July 31, LAPD officers have made 768 traffic stops and written 578 citations. This is down from the same time period in 2019 where they made 1,120 traffic stops and wrote 902 citations.  There are several factors for this related to the COVID-19 pandemic, however LAPD is still enforcing traffic laws to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians. Traffic counts are lower due to the partial closures of LANL, school closures between March and May, and other closures.  A recent study of traffic counts on Trinity Drive revealed it is seeing about 50 percent of the normal traffic compared to previous years.  Traffic crashes have declined compared to the previous year, (see chart). last_img read more

first_img COMMENT LIVE TV Last Updated: 17th May, 2020 06:53 IST MLB Projects $640K Per Game Loss With No Fans Major League Baseball told players their prorated salaries would contribute to an average loss of $640,000 for each game over an 82-game season in empty ballparks, according to a presentation from the commissioner’s office to the union that was obtained by The Associated Press. First Published: 17th May, 2020 06:53 IST WATCH US LIVE Major League Baseball told players their prorated salaries would contribute to an average loss of $640,000 for each game over an 82-game season in empty ballparks, according to a presentation from the commissioner’s office to the union that was obtained by The Associated Press.Painting a picture of a $10 billion industry shuttered by the contagion, the 12-page document titled “Economics of Playing Without Fans in Attendance” and dated May 12 was an initial step in negotiations aimed at starting the delayed season around the Fourth of July.Teams say the proposed method of salvaging a season delayed by the coronavirus pandemic would still cause a $4 billion loss and would give major league players 89% of revenue.They contend they lose more money with each additional game played. The players’ union, however, believes clubs would lose less money with more games. In addition, many teams and/or their owners have stakes in their regional sports network that would benefit from additional games.Owners voted Monday to proposeThe New York Yankees alone would have $312 million in local losses when calculating their earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. New York’s figure includes about $100 million in payments toward the bonds that financed new Yankee Stadium.The Los Angeles Dodgers were at $232 million in local losses, followed by the New York Mets at $214 million, Chicago Cubs at $199 million and Boston Red Sox at $188 million.Detroit would have the lowest negative EBIDTA — an accounting measure used to assess profitability — at $84 million, with Baltimore at $90 million, and Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay at $91 million each. Figures exclude distributions from the central office, which projects to collect $1.34 billion in media revenue.The figures were calculated by MLB and its clubs, and the frequently skeptical union already hasMLB said 2019 revenue was 39% local gate and other in-park sources, followed by 25% central revenue, 22% local media, 11% sponsorship and 4% other.Teams fears a second wave of the coronavirus would devastate finances if renewed government restrictions cause cancellation of the postseason, which brings in $787 million in media money. The document details who pays what: $370 million by Fox, $310 million by Turner, $27 million by ESPN, $30 million by the MLB Network and $50 million from international and other.Teams project to increase their debt from $5.2 billion last year to $7.3 billion in 2020, leaving most clubs out of compliance with the labor contract’s debt service rule. MLB’s central office increased debt by $550 million to support clubs and is seeking $650 million more credit. MLB said many teams do not have the capacity to add more debt to fund losses in 2021.MLB and the union agreed to aNow that plans have been formulated to possibly start the season in early July in disinfected stadiums with no gate revenue, at least at the start, MLB says the current economics are not feasible. Players have said they already made a deal andBut that deal is contingent on playing in front of fans at regular-season ballparks. The agreement committed both sides to “discuss in good faith the economic feasibility of playing games in the absence of spectators or at appropriate neutral sites.”Players traditionally have questioned team accounting on what counts as a baseball revenue or expense. Cincinnati pitcher Trevor Bauer speculated this week over whether an owner could increase prices of a parking garage near the ballpark the owner also controls and generate money that would not be included in the club accounts.Since the start of revenue sharing 25 years ago, MLB repeatedly has said team accounting is monitored and follows strict rules.Still, for all the questions, the presentation does detail the pandemic’s financial destruction.Revenue from regional sports networks drops in proportion to the lost games, from $2.3 billion to $1.2 billion and an average of $980,000 per game for both teams, according to the projection. Teams fear some additional losses because the regional networks will have to give up games to Fox and ESPN to fulfill national contracts. MLB said rights holders have already reserved rights to stop payments or demand refunds if agreed to inventory is not delivered.Player salaries under the March 26 deal average $1.67 million per game for both clubs. MLB projects overall local revenue at $1.23 million a game for both teams and cost at $1.87 million.MLB headed into the season projecting $9.967 billion in revenue, including $7.548 billion at the local level, according to the presentation.Expenses totaled $10.234 billion: $4.366 billion for major league player compensation, $198 million for pensions and benefits, $537 million to sign amateurs, $4.73 billion in local expenses and $403 million for the central office.That left MLB with a projected EBIDTA of $143 million after stadium depreciation and noncash add backs. Free cash flow was predicted at negative $95 million after interest expenses, mandatory principal payments and non-baseball income and losses, but excluding capital improvements. MLB says EBIDTA has been within $250 million of break-even annually since 2010.Under the newly developed plan, MLB projects revenue at $2.87 billion, including $1.522 billion at the local level.Expenses drop to $6.819 billion: $2.36 billion for major league player compensation, including salaries, prorated shares of signing bonuses, termination pay and buyouts of declined options.Pension and benefits stay the same, and money to sign amateurs decreases to $440 million as part of changes that cut the amateur draft from 40 rounds to five, caps the bonuses of undrafted players at $20,000 and allows most of the money to be deferred through July 2022.. Local expenses drop to $3.46 billion and central office expenses to $360 million.That leaves a $3.58 billion EBIDTA loss and negative $4.016 billion in free cash flow. If fans could be in ballparks, MLB projects a $1.626 billion EBIDTA loss and negative $2.076 billion in free cash flow.MLB anticipates $1.788 billion central office revenue for an 82-game schedule with empty ballparks and a $1.345 billion net after expenses for MLB Advanced Media and Major League Baseball Properties.Revenue includes $155 million from sponsors (excluding the MLB Network); $112 million from consumer products, $93 million from digital such as MLB.tv and At Bat and $89 million in non-media revenue. center_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News Written By FOLLOW USlast_img read more
