Dodgers, Angels notes: Clayton Kershaw goes on DL

first_imgANAHEIM — Clayton Kershaw played catch with Dodgers head athletic trainer Stan Conte on Saturday at Angel Stadium. Each of his throws was a little bit farther than the one before as Kershaw moved back until he stood about 100 feet from Conte. One throw was interrupted by a magnitude-4.1 earthquake about 14 miles north of here. Kershaw experienced some discomfort on his 27th and final throw, in the area of the same teres major muscle that showed inflammation in an MRI exam Wednesday. The pain was enough to end Kershaw’s throwing session and earn him a spot on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 23.“I’m not going to get into specifics,” Kershaw said. “I can’t pitch right now. I’m going to take a few extra days. It’s frustrating. I’ve been hurt before. Right now it’s just not getting better fast enough. Mattingly wouldn’t say whether or not Kershaw is expected to miss only the minimum seven games.Kershaw will take a day off from throwing today, then try to resume throwing Monday when the Dodgers have an off-day workout at Petco Park in San Diego.With Kershaw sidelined, Hyun-Jin Ryu is expected to start the Dodgers’ home opener against the San Francisco Giants on Friday. Saturday’s start will go to either Josh Beckett — who is eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list at that time — or Paul Maholm.Ryu will start today’s regular-season game in San Diego against the Padres. Zack Greinke starts Tuesday’s game and Dan Haren starts Wednesday.Dominguez optionedPitcher Jose Dominguez was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, essentially beating Chris Withrow — another hard-throwing right-hander — for the final spot in the Dodgers’ bullpen.Dominguez allowed three runs while recording only one out in the Dodgers’ second regular-season game in Sydney. He spent most of last season in Triple-A, then made nine relief appearances for the Dodgers and allowed just two runs.The Dodgers’ roster for Opening Day (in North America) is all but official. The team will carry four starting pitchers: Ryu, Gerinke, Maholm and Haren. The bullpen will consist of Kenley Jansen, Brian Wilson, Chris Perez, J.P. Howell, Paco Rodriguez, Brandon League, Jamey Wright and Withrow.A.J. Ellis and Drew Butera are the catchers. Adrian Gonzalez, Dee Gordon, Hanley Ramirez, Juan Uribe, Chone Figgins and Justin Turner round out the infield. Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig, Mike Baxter and Scott Van Slyke are the outfielders.Figgins can play the outfield too, and Van Slyke can back up Gonzalez at first base. The roster, which must be submitted to the league prior to today’s first pitch, probably would change only if a player was injured during Saturday’s game against the Angels.Cowgill, Stewart make Angels’ rosterThe Angels’ Opening Day roster announcement came after some tough conversations behind closed doors.Collin Cowgill beat out J.B. Shuck, Matt Long and Brennan Boesch for the final outfielder’s job. Ian Stewart beat out Grant Green for the final infielder’s job. Matt Shoemaker made the club as a long reliever.Sean Burnett (left-elbow surgery), Dane De La Rosa (right forearm inflammation), Ryan Brasier (right elbow strain) and Brian Moran (left elbow inflammation) will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 21.That means Shuck, Green, Boesch and Long — among others — will begin the season at Triple-A Salt Lake.“That’s about as tough as it gets,” manager Mike Scioscia said of his conversation with Shuck. “J.B. had a terrific season for us last year and a great spring training. J.B. was not going to be getting many at-bats without someone going down.”Shuck batted .293 with 20 doubles and eight stolen bases in 2013, his first full season in the major leagues. He batted .281 in spring training.Joining him in Salt Lake were pitchers Cory Rasmus, Jose Alvarez, Brandon Lyon and catcher Luis Martinez.Also …The Angels officially announced Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago will start in that order during the season-opening series against the Seattle Mariners. Seattle will counter with right-hander Felix Hernandez, right-hander Erasmo Ramirez and left-hander James Paxton. … Ryu said he felt no pain in his right big toe during a bullpen session Friday. Ryu injured the toe rounding third base during the Dodgers’ first game of the regular season in Sydney. “I tried to throw harder today, felt it, so I’m going to have to take a step back a little bit.”Kershaw, who signed a seven-year, $215 million contract in January, allowed one run in his Opening Day start against the Diamondbacks in Sydney, Australia. He’s never been on the disabled list in his career.The 26-year-old will be eligible to return as early as April 7. That’s an off-day for the Dodgers, who host the Detroit Tigers on April 8-9. Kershaw can miss a minimum of seven games, including the Dodgers’ second game against the Diamondbacks in Sydney.There’s a possibility Kershaw might be healthy enough to pitch sometime at home next weekend against the San Francisco Giants — at least, that Kershaw would try to be ready by then. But, as Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, “we have to save Clayton from Clayton.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Zach Profit, June 8

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Today we are working on tiling. We have about 15 acres to finish up and an outlet we need to put in. We have 62 acres of that field planted and the beans are up and looking good and we are trying to get the rest finished up and planted.We finished sidedressing last night with our unique nitrogen things we are trying. We did some straight anhydrous, we applied some with a lower rate where we will come back with Y-DROPs and we also did some straight 28% Y-DROPs. We got all of that on and then we got some really nice, easy rains to work that 28% into the soil. We’re thankful for that.This week we had seven tenths at the farm. I got an inch at my house. It was a nice rain. We have good soil moisture but we really need to keep getting these rains every week. There are parts of the county that are still pretty dry. The whole county could use another good drink. The crops are looking good but we are going to need those rains.Wheat is looking really good around here. We don’t have any but I have been driving around the county and I haven’t seen a bad field. I think the conditions have been good for fungicide application and there will be a good wheat crop in this area. It is nowhere near turning yet.If you got the seed down into moisture when you planted things worked out pretty well with emergence. In some fields where the seed was not deep enough, there were emergence problems. This year that depth was critical. There are some uneven stands out there because of uneven seeding depths in the fields. You could not dust them in this year. They needed to be down into the moisture because we didn’t get a good soaking rain during planting.I think we’ll get done with the post- application of soybeans today. We had a couple of fields that were getting pretty hairy. We put down some different products this season to control some late waterhemp this year. We got that all down. We did see a little bronzing on the beans but they grew out of that. Weed control now looks pretty good because we have been able to get out there and get things sprayed.I you go north things don’t look so good. If you go south things get drier. I was down around Chillicothe and normally they are a couple weeks ahead of us but this year things look pretty similar to what we have here. We are pretty fortunate in this area and we don’t have much to complain about.last_img read more

Salesforce Is Making Its Play For The Mobile Enterprise Developer

first_img“As far as I can tell, it is a renaissance in mobile right now,” said Salesforce VP of developer relations Adam Seligman. “There are hundreds of new libraries and frameworks popping up right now. There are hundreds of thousands of new apps popping up. We want to be right in the middle of that and make sure that the enterprise and customers have these hundreds of thousands of apps for business.”Consumer Solutions For Enterprise ProblemsOne of the reasons that apps have exploded in the last couple of years is that companies have worked to lower the barrier to entry for building and designing mobile apps. Services like Conduit have created templates and libraries that make it easy to turn any website into a mobile app, providing all the cloud integration, design templates and app functionality that a consumer-facing app would need through a few simple clicks. Salesforce’s goal is to take that approach and apply it to the enterprise.As Gold told me by email:Salesforce, while it has some tools of its own, is not really a leader in any mobile app dev sense of the word. It is specific to its own platform, and not going after a general purpose audience of mobile developers. Still, this is not a bad strategy as it can quickly build up a portfolio of mobile apps tied to its backends that preempts its large customer base from thinking about switching (although the alternative players in this space aren’t so great at mobile either).What has Salesforce really done here? It has made it pretty easy to build your apps … on Salesforce. Despite the open source library of app templates, Salesforce really only cares about getting its clients to use its cloud, its services, its data integration. In that way, Salesforce is really no different from the rest of the mobile ecosystem full of companies that want to lock you into their proprietary platforms.  Tags:#app development#cloud services#enterprise Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Salesforce wants to make itself a one-stop-shop for mobile enterprise developers.The cloud services and customer management company is aiming to place itself at the center of the enterprise app revolution. Just like it did when enterprises started coming online over the last 15 or so years, Salesforce is building toolsets for enterprises developers—ones that Salesforce says they can use to build just about app their companies will need for smartphones or tablets.See also: Why Mobile Developers Are Really Starting To Embrace The EnterpriseSalesforce isn’t alone in its mobile-enterprise ambitions, of course. Appcelerator has a similar suite of tools for developers to build enterprise apps, while IBM, Google and Apple all have programs to help companies take their data to the cloud and to build the apps they need. Mobile cloud service companies (often known as “backend as a service”) like Parse, StackMob, Kinvey and others have focused on enterprise data and integration.Salesforce also battles its traditional rivals such as Oracle, Microsoft and SAP for mindshare among enterprise developers. This group (outside of Microsoft’s Windows-focused mobile products) has not been particularly adept at handling the mobile revolution. Salesforce’s aim is to out-nimble its old competitors while getting developers to build apps that hook into its existing cloud and customer relationship products as quickly as it possibly can.Where Salesforce Fits In“Salesforce is trying to extend its ability to get lots of smallish apps quickly tied into its platform for mobile Salesforce users,” said Jack Gold, principal analyst at J.Gold & Associates, in an email to ReadWrite. “That is their key objective. Doing it through supporting various templates and various programming models widens their ability to get big numbers of apps (much as they did in the early days with PC apps).” The mobile revolution still has a long way to move through the large organizations of the world. Companies that have built one or two core apps now find themselves in need of an app for everything they do, be it customer relations, marketing or internal efficiency. Enterprise is not a monoculture world of iPhone or Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry or the mobile Web. Corporations across the world use all of these platforms. Their apps need to work across all the mobile platforms and enterprise developers need a toolset that gives them the flexibility to work within any environment they need.In April, Salesforce tossed its hat in the ring with a product it called Salesforce Platform Mobile Services. This suite was really a set of tools meant to accelerate the production of enterprise apps that use Salesforce data.On Tuesday, Salesforce expanded its platform with refinements that intended to make it easier for enterprise developers—who may or may not be using Salesforce for customer management or cloud data—to design and develop mobile apps.Salesforce mobile app galleryThe addition to the Salesforce Platform Mobile Services includes four main ingredients:Design templates for enterprise apps: Seligman said that Salesforce saw that a lot of enterprises have the developers they need to build functional apps, but not the designers. So, Salesforce did the work for them and has come out with 20 templates for app design that can be easily integrated by enterprise developers. The templates are open source, made from HTML and CSS and link to a GitHub repository where enterprise developers can cut and paste or modify the code as needed. Developers that don’t use Salesforce for their cloud data will also be able to use these templates.Mobile Gallery: After the announcement of the Mobile Services platform, Seligman and his team went on a tour around the world to see what enterprise CIOs and developers wanted. The reaction?Show me. While Salesforce talks a big game about how it is trying to making enterprise developers lives easier by providing tools and easy framework integration, CIOs wanted to see what could really be done. So Salesforce created the mobile gallery of work from other companies for inspiration to sell mobile services.Mobile Packs: As mentioned above, not every enterprise is built the same or has the same processes. Salesforce is well aware of this. Hence Salesforce is creating the ability for enterprise developers to work through as many different integrated developer environments (IDE), tool sets and programming languages as possible to build apps. The Mobile Packs in the latest version of the Salesforce Mobile Platform integrate frameworks like Knockout.js, Appery.io, Sencha Touch and Xamarin.SmartSync Data Framework: A lot of progress has been made in the last couple years for mobile developers to create online/offline modes for mobile content. The ability to cache data from the cloud within an app has been an ongoing developer issue. SmartSync is Salesforce’s instantiation of online/offline mode, creating JavaScript plumbing that developers can use to build apps that work wherever their users happen to be.

As pot becomes legal parallels drawn to the waning days of alcohol

first_imgCOLEMAN, Alta. – A notorious 1922 police shooting in southwestern Alberta and the sensational trial that followed caused many to wonder whether enforcing alcohol prohibition was worth the trouble.Alberta’s move to outlaw drinking in 1916 was wildly unpopular in the Crowsnest Pass, a cluster of coal mining towns nestled in the Rocky Mountains not far from the B.C. boundary.The area became a hotbed of bootlegging and rum running, with prominent businessman Emilio Picariello — known also as “Emperor Pic” or the “Bottle King” —dominating the trade.But on Sept. 21, 1922, Picariello got word that his son was wounded in a police stop. That led to a deadly confrontation outside the Alberta Provincial Police barracks in downtown Coleman hours later.No one knows for sure whether Picariello or family friend Florence Lassandro fired the shot that killed Const. Stephen Lawson. Both were hanged the following spring — Lassandro the only woman in Alberta to meet that fate.“It gripped the nation,” said Fred Bradley, a Crowsnest Pass heritage advocate. “It would have been the 1920s version of the O.J. Simpson trial.”With provinces plotting out how they will manage the regulation and distribution of recreational marijuana once it becomes legal this summer, history buffs see some parallels to the waning days of alcohol prohibition in Canada.Every province had its own approach to battling booze in the early 20th century.And, like the way the federal government has approached the legalization of cannabis, the rules for ending prohibition of alcohol were up to each province.Booze flowed freely in British Columbia three years before Alberta, so rum running between the two provinces was rampant.For many in Alberta, the Lawson shooting underscored how difficult and dangerous it was to police prohibition, Bradley said.The province voted to repeal the policy six months after Picariello and Lassandro were executed. Booze sales were legal again in 1924.Other provinces, too, grew weary of the corruption and violence that came with prohibition. Nearly a century later, the Liberal government has said one of the main goals of legalizing marijuana has been to take organized crime out of the picture.“The end of prohibition was brought about because people began to recognize that the cure, as it were, was worse than the disease,” said Vancouver historian Daniel Francis.Prohibition had mostly ended in Canada by the end of the 1920s, but it lasted until 1933 in the United States.That presented a lucrative window of opportunity to supply the U.S. market.The distilling business founded by the now-prominent Bronfman family made a fortune. Fishermen in B.C. made good money transporting booze down the coast as a side business.“They saw an opportunity to make a few bucks,” said Francis. “Most of them were small-time businessmen. They weren’t big crooks.”When prohibition ended in the Unites States, the low-level rum runners mostly got out of the illicit trade and went back to their law-abiding lives, said Francis.“They had no regrets over what they’d done and no guilt that they had been engaging in criminal activity,” he said. “They saw themselves as a public service satisfying a quite understandable public need.”Some of the kingpins, meanwhile, went on to deal in harder drugs like heroin or cocaine. And some people who served booze on the sly during prohibition became legit vendors at hotels and restaurants.But Just because booze was legal didn’t mean it was a free-for all, said Dan Malleck, an associate professor of health sciences at Ontario’s Brock University who specializes in the history of drug and alcohol prohibition.At Ontario outlets, there were no displays of products on offer. A customer had to fill out a form, line up at a counter and hand a passport-like booklet to a clerk, who would note each purchase.Bottles were handed over concealed in brown paper bags.It was no fun, but people put up with it.“Most people were decent citizens who wanted to follow the rules,” Malleck said.There was a bit of a clean-up period while governments tried to nail down the right number of stores, product prices and authorized drinking locations.Provinces will have to find a similar balance once pot is legal, Malleck said, and its effectiveness will depend on how easily consumers can get what they want the legal way.“The black market always will exist,” said Malleck.“But after prohibition that black market in booze was a fraction of what it was.”last_img read more
