War of Will gets ‘fair shot’ and wins Preakness featuring riderless horse

War of Will won the Preakness Stakes under rising star jockey Tyler Gaffalione over a field that included riderless Bodexpress Mark Casse completed a lifelong quest two weeks after the scare of a lifetime. And he did so in a race featuring a riderless horse that threw his jockey out of the gate and kept running. Since he was a child, Casse wanted to win a Triple Crown race, and the well-respected trainer got that victory when War of Will bounced back from a bumpy ride in the Kentucky Derby to win the Preakness on Saturday. Casse, 58, was more relieved than anything that his prized three-year-old colt didnt go down in the Derby, which couldve been a multihorse catastrophe, …

Wilder, Joshua, Fury mark time amid lost heavyweight season

The three men with claims to the title of worlds best heavyweight will each fight in the next month, but the 19-year wait for an undisputed champion presses on Of the many well-documented reasons for boxings protracted retreat toward the periphery of the mainstream, the lack of clearly identifiable champions rates high on a competitive list. At one time the heavyweight championship of the world was the most prestigious title in sports, yet boxings lack of central authority has left us with four major sanctioning bodies that have served to create confusion among casual observers while devaluing the currency of a title. Only five and a half months ago, the sports bellwether division appeared on the cusp of a new …

Tram Bowling Is an Actual Sport. Let’s Look at the Physics

Yes, this just keeps rerunning the collision over and over. Oh, if you want to change some things, there are three variables I suggest (in the code). You can change the effective spring constant and the masses of the two objects. See what happens. For my initial model, the tram has a mass of 10,000 kilograms compared to the ball at just 1 kg. This gives the the ball a final velocity of about 10 m/s (the tram was moving at 5 meters per second). Next, as a physicist, I am legally required to create a plot of momentum vs. time for these two objects. If I use the same masses as before, the graph is boring. The change in …

VW Will Make Its Own Batteries to Power an Electric Future

Four years after getting caught cheating emissions standards with millions of diesel-powered cars, Volkswagen has become the most (outwardly, at least) zealous of converts to an electric future. By 2028, it intends to offer 70 battery-powered models. To make that happen, it’s retooling 16 factories to build electric cars. It’s pushing suppliers to ramp up battery production and has already locked in battery supplies for 15 million vehicles, CEO Herbert Diess told Automotive News late last year—a huge number even for a company that builds 10 million cars annually. But the conversion hasn’t been entirely smooth. Last month, reports surfaced that VW luxury arm Audi will build 10,000 fewer electric E-tron SUVs than expected, because of a battery shortage. Now, …

Georgetown Student Sues School After Dad Admits to $400K Bribe in College-Admissions Scam

A Georgetown University undergraduate whose father admitted to called the largest college admissions scam prosecuted by the Justice Department. We got an email Tuesday that Adam would not be allowed to withdraw from Georgetown until the review is finished, but they did not give us any time-frame of when that would be, Semprevivos lawyer, David Kenner, told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. All we are asking for is to just let Adam go with his credits so he does not have to start life all over again at such a young age. Kenner added that Wednesdays letter must mean someone had to stay up all night to conduct the entire investigation. The students father, Los Angeles executive Stephen Semprevivo, charged …

The Jeremy Kyle Show axed by ITV

ITV’s statement in full: “Given the gravity of recent events we have decided to end production of The Jeremy Kyle Show. Damian Collins MP, chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee, said the broadcaster had made the right decision. “However, that should not be the end of the matter,” he said. “There needs to be an independent review of the duty of care TV companies have to participants in reality TV shows.” Programmes like The Jeremy Kyle Show risked “putting people who might be vulnerable on to a public stage at a point in their lives when they are unable to foresee the consequences”, he said. ‘I was traumatised’: Jeremy Kyle guests relive their appearances The committee …

Steve Mnuchin Can’t Answer Basic Questions About IRS Presidential Audits

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) asked Mnuchin during a hearing if the mandatory presidential audit would encompass previous tax years if the person who became president had been under audit for those years. Mnuchin’s inability to answer such a basic question about the IRS’ presidential audits comes on the heels of his refusal to comply with a federal law allowing congressional tax-writing committees to obtain any person’s tax returns. Mnuchin rejected Neal’s lawful request by insinuating that the committee’s interest in IRS presidential tax audits was merely a pretext to obtain and disseminate Trump’s tax returns for partisan political purposes. If Democrats really wanted to know about presidential audits, Mnuchin said in a letter last month, “we would be happy …

I Hope Hannah B. Doesn’t Get Engaged On ‘The Bachelorette’ Here’s Why Betches

Whatever your feelings are on the new Bachelorette pick, I think we can agree: the last few seasons have been severely lacking. Becca Kufrin and Rachel Lindsay handled themselves with grace, don’t get me wrong. But they also both wound up with supremely disappointing mates: Becca’s, a man who liked memes so offensive they made my eyes water; and Rachel’s, well, a man who isn’t Peter Kraus. (This is not just Peter-favoritism; Vulture, The New Yorker, and The New York Times all agree with me.) On the flip side, the last two Bachelor seasons have ended with our suitor saying “f*ck it” and doing whatever he wants, regardless of how it messes with show protocol or their runner-ups’ emotions. And sadly, I have more faith in both of …
