We already looked at how a few of the proposed new rule changes for college football and recruiting either help or hurt Oklahoma State, but it’s worth revisiting today because the NCAA set in stone an early signing period for college football. It goes into effect later this year (as do the other changes).Monday, the Collegiate Commissioners Association officially approved a three-day signing period for high school seniors. The 72-hour window will begin Dec. 20 and end Dec. 22. Seniors who are settled on their college choice can sign a National Letter of Intent in that timeframe. Any player who doesn’t sign in the early-signing period will have to wait until National Signing Day on Feb. 7, 2018 to sign with a school. [Yahoo]This may or may not be significant to Oklahoma State, but I think it probably helps them as a program. On a case-by-case basis, nobody knows whether a recruit will want to lock down a commitment early or wait until the end, but generally Oklahoma State seems to be good at evaluating talent up front.What this means is that you might be able to get a player or two to sign early that would have flipped in January before the traditional February signing day to Texas or OU. You won’t get this every year, to be sure. Some players won’t sign in December and will still flip in January. Many players who will sign in December wouldn’t have flipped anyway.But this drops a feather on the OSU end of the scale if the other side is the Ohio States and Texas A&Ms — recruiting behemoths who often swipe stars at the end of the road. One other thing we haven’t discussed is that a December signing period doesn’t allow for the Bamas and Clemsons to win their titles and make a victory lap on the recruiting trail. That’s a good thing for smaller schools like Oklahoma State. Plus a lot of players are just ready for the recruiting hoopla to be over at that point.It will be impossible to determine the true effect on OSU, but I think over the course of, say, five years, you’re going to see a really good player or two sign in December and be thankful you didn’t have to insulate them all the way until February.
Davide Astori O captain, my captain – Fiorentina’s Saponara in emotional Astori tribute Ryan Benson 02:08 6/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Serie A Udinese v Fiorentina Fiorentina Tributes have poured in following the death of Davide Astori, and his Fiorentina team-mate Riccardo Saponara has written a moving message. Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Saponara produced an emotional tribute to Davide Astori after the death of La Viola’s captain.Astori, 31, was found dead in his hotel room prior to Sunday’s match against Udinese.Results of an autopsy are yet to be revealed, though Udine’s public prosecutor Antonio De Nicolo said on Sunday it was likely Astori “died of cardiac arrest by natural causes.” Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis!

Oklahoma State picked up a huge win on the football field Saturday night, then a big win on the recruiting trail less than 24 hours later. Class of 2022 offensive line prospect Kelvin Banks Jr. committed to the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon, pledging his allegiance to the Pokes over offers from Texas, Arizona State, Florida State and Houston.Banks is a 6-foot-4, 285-pound recruit from Humble, Texas and Summer Creek High School — a mammoth prospect for just a sophomore.

Getting him to commit early could certainly help in OSU’s early pursuit of skill talent in the class with five-star running back Raleek Brown and other blue-chippers at quarterback likely to emerge in the near future.

World Cup Why Carlos Vela’s World Cup form should earn MLS some respect Ives Galarcep 01:47 6/25/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Clive Brunskill World Cup Mexico Los Angeles MLS The Los Angeles FC star has been one of Mexico’s best players during its strong World Cup run, and that form is making Major League Soccer look good Carlos Vela has been one of the key contributors in Mexico’s impressive start to the 2018 World Cup, with his strong showing against South Korea on Sunday following up a pivotal performance in the 1-0 upset of Germany.Vela’s efforts have made it easy to forget that it wasn’t too long ago that there were real questions about what sort of form he would be in after making the surprising decision to leave Spanish side Real Sociedad to sign with Major League Soccer expansion team Los Angeles FC.The move was seen as a step back for Vela, who at 29 could have still found plenty of teams in top European leagues to play for. Would the quality of play in MLS slow him down and maybe even cost him a starting role at the World Cup? Article continues below Editors’ Picks Perfection from Pulisic: Chelsea’s Captain America has arrived in the Premier League Why always Raheem? ‘Unplayable’ Sterling setting a standard Man City’s other stars need to match ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Among those concerned was Mexican national team coach Juan Carlos Osorio, who has made no secret of his preference to have El Tri’s best players playing in top European leagues over moves to MLS and Liga MX. Though he didn’t criticize Vela’s MLS move publicly when it happened, Osorio expressed real concerns privately about what the move might mean for the form of a player who was supposed to be an important piece in the El Tri attack.Those fears were put to rest once Osorio had Vela in camp and saw a player not only brimming with confidence, but also one who was in peak physical condition, something that was vital to the plans Osorio had for his team in Russia.”You can see the improvement in his condition and it is a testament to the physical demands of the MLS,” Osorio told Goal before the start of the World Cup. “Playing for a good coach like Bob Bradley has clearly helped him adapt and you can tell he is enjoying his football.”That much has been clear to anyone who has seen Vela’s World Cup performances. On the ball, the forward has been clinical and effective. Defensively, he has been relentless, as evidenced by his outstanding work to help neutralize Toni Kroos in the win against Germany.That performance caught the attention of many, including former Arsenal teammate Cesc Fabregas, who pointed out that fears about MLS hurting Vela’s game appear to have been misguided.”In terms of the individual players who have impressed me the most, Vela deserves a mention for what he did against Kroos,” Fabregas wrote in a recent column for the BBC . “Vela left Real Sociedad to join Los Angeles FC at the start of the year and people seem to think that when you go to the MLS, or that type of league, your level drops.”That was not the case when he played against Germany, because Kroos could not shake him off. He tried but he could not influence the game.”Vela was at his best again on Saturday, working both ends of the field, putting in the effort defensively while also delivering dangerous passes. His converted penalty kick capped another strong showing to pull Mexico to the brink of the knockout rounds.In the process, he has provided some pretty convincing evidence that moving to MLS doesn’t have to mean a player will see their impact diminish on the international level. It is a stigma that has existed for some time, and one that continued to circulate as U.S. national team stars like Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley returned to MLS.The reality is that there have been several foreign players who have been able to maintain or boost their international careers after moving to MLS. Four years ago, Costa Rican defender Giancarlo Gonzalez joined the Columbus Crew before going on to star for the Ticos during their impressive run to the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals. His form earned him a summer move to Italian side Sampdoria that same year. This time around, Seattle Sounders defender Gustav Svensson is part of Sweden’s World Cup team and played a role in Sweden’s successful qualifying campaign. Vela’s LAFC teammate Laurent Ciman is in his fourth season in MLS and was the final cut from Belgium’s stacked World Cup squad.That doesn’t mean there haven’t been MLS players whose international careers were hurt by the stigma surrounding MLS’ quality. Toronto FC’s Italian star Sebastian Giovinco is a prime example of a player who has thrived in MLS but hasn’t been able to translate that into a return to the Italian national team, though given Vela’s success at the World Cup you can’t help but wonder if some in Italy aren’t looking at Giovinco’s absence from the Azzurri’s failed World Cup qualifying campaign through a different lens now.Vela’s form in Russia should help foreign MLS players generate a bit more respect and consideration from their national teams, and should serve as evidence to players considering moves to MLS that they don’t necessarily have to see their international careers wane or end because they decide to play in the league. It should also help the league make that very case to prospective players as teams continue to scour the international market for higher-level talent, as the money being spent on MLS salaries continues to grow.

He’s a legend really.”Four or five names came to my mind, maybe Steve Bruce or Ryan Giggs. It’s a different type of management, with (Mike) Phelan coming back in, Sir Alex’s man. With the players they’ve got, young lads, I bet he can’t believe his luck.”I think it’s the best job Ole will have in his life, because you can’t lose! Hold the fort until the end of the season, if he does well he’ll get a couple of years. If he doesn’t, he’ll go back to where he was enjoying [managing] anyhow.”

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2019 Science X Network Based on new data from ESA’s Gaia satellite, astronomers have provided more insights into properties of the nearby open cluster NGC 2682, revealing that its size is at least two times greater than previously believed. The findings are detailed in a paper published May 6 on the arXiv pre-print repository. More information: R. Carrera, et al. The extended halo of NGC 2682 (M 67) from Gaia DR2. arXiv:1905.02020v1 [astro-ph.SR] arxiv.org/abs/1905.02020 Located some 2,800 light years away, NGC 2682 (aka Messier 67, or M67 for short) is an open cluster in the constellation of Cancer. With an estimated age of about 3.6 billion years, it is one of the nearest old open clusters. Notably, its age and initial chemical composition is similar to that of the sun, hence astronomers even considered that the sun might actually have originated from NGC 2682.Published about one year ago, the latest catalog of data from Gaia satellite (known as Data Release 2, or DR2) provides high-precision measurements, including positions in the sky, parallaxes and proper motions for more than 1 billion sources in the Milky Way. The release contains observational data collected by Gaia in the timespan of nearly two years – between July 25, 2014 and May 23, 2016.DR2 has the potential of revealing more insights into the nature of NGC 2682 as astrometric information in this release could be a valuable tool to investigate extra-tidal regions of several open clusters in the solar neighborhood. So a team of European astronomers led by Ricardo Carrera of Astronomical Observatory of Padova in Italy recently decided to use DR2 in order to learn more about NGC 2682.In particular, the researchers investigated the spatial distribution of this cluster of stars in order to constrain its dynamical evolution. Given that most open clusters should dissolve at an age of around 1 billion years, the fact that NGC 2682 survived until now suggests that it was likely much more massive in the past and has an interesting dynamical history.”We use Gaia DR2 data to identify NGC 2682 members up to a distance of about 150 pc (10 degrees). Two methods (Clusterix and UPMASK) are applied to this end. We estimate distances to obtain three-dimensional stellar positions using a Bayesian approach to parallax inversion, with an appropriate prior for star clusters,” the paper reads.The main conclusion from the study conducted by Carrera’s team is that NGC 2682 is at least twice as large than previously thought. Based on the DR2 data, the astronomers found that this cluster extends up to approximately 160 light years, while other observations carried out in the recent years suggested not more than 78 light years.Furthermore, the study confirmed that NGC 2682 is mass-segregated with the most massive objects concentrated in the central regions. However, there are also stars outside the tidal radius of this cluster. The researchers assume that these extra-tidal stars in NGC 2682 may originate from external perturbations such as disk shocking or dynamical evaporation from two-body relaxation. They also plan more studies of the cluster to test these scenarios.

David ZaslavDiscovery says it is driving hard on 4K to ensure it is ready when pay TV platform operators start to demand content in the ultra high definition format.CEO and president David Zaslav and international president JB Perrette both affirmed the factual channel specialist’s commitment to the emerging format at a Discovery event in Paris.“Our content looks fantastic in 4K,” Zaslav said. “When there was the transition to HD we saw a bump in our market share because our content looked fantastic. We have been quietly driving very hard on the 4k transition, and are starting to see that happen; so, when distributors raise their hand and say we want some 4k, we are the leader and out content looksgreat. It’s an additional opportunity for us.”International chief Perrette added that while in-home 3D has not worked, with consumers failing to take to wearing the required glasses for small-screen viewing, Discovery is keen to be ready should 4K take off in the same way as HD.“On the non-fiction side, we’ll be doing more 4K commissioning, although how it will get exploited is to be decided,” he told TBI. “It uses a lot of bandwidth and a lot of distributors are working out what the level of demand is, but ultimately we want to be at the leading edge ofthat evolution.”Channel operators and pay platforms are proceeding cautiously in terms of full 4K networks. BT recently announced an upcoming 4K sports channel, requiring customers to take a new settop box. That will be the first 4K channel in Europe when it rolls out in August.Perrette added that having acquired Eurosport, sport could be a genre that lends itself content in the new format. “I think in sports we’d like to try and experiment in more ways and bring Eurosport into that widerDiscovery fold of being on the cutting edge and do some more things in 4k.”
