There’s been plenty of rain in recent weeks and days are growing shorter and cooler, but the Divisions says it will only take a few hot, dry days to create the perfect conditions for a potential wildfire. The Division also asks hunters to ensure spark arrestors on ATVs, chainsaws and other equipment are working properly before heading into the field. Govoni: “If you’re going to have a fire, like a campfire, keep your fire small, make sure you have your area cleaned out around it so it can’t catch into the grasses or spruce trees, monitor the fire at all times, have water and hand tools available. Then when you’re done, make sure it’s completely out and when we say completely out, to the point where you can stick your hand into what was there and it would be cool to the touch.” Dan Govoni in charge of Wildfire Prevention and Investigation with the state of Alaska Division of Forestry… FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享With hunting season underway, the Alaska Division of Forestry and Bureau of Land Management are asking hunters to be careful with anything that could cause a wildfire.

U.S. District Court Judge Kevin Sharp dismissed a lawsuit on Thursday that alleged college sports’ biggest conferences and broadcast partners exploited the images of 10 former athletes.A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by 10 former college football and basketball players who alleged their images were improperly used without their permission by broadcast networks and eight NCAA conferences.Chief District Judge Kevin H. Sharp ruled in Nashville on Thursday that the players’ claims that they were entitled to monetary compensation because they played in televised games do not represent a sufficient case.The ruling is a win for the networks and conferences in a battle over the billions of dollars earned in college sports. It opposes a judge’s ruling in a similar California case and ensures publicity law — and payments — for college players will be tested in multiple appeals courts.Sharp dismissed the plaintiffs’ arguments that were based in publicity law, trademark statute and antitrust law, throwing out claims that television networks, NCAA conferences and their licensees were conspiring to exploit rules forbidding student-athletes from making money.The lawsuit, filed in October, named ESPN, CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox as defendants, as well as eight conferences, including the SEC.Former Vanderbilt, Tennessee players sue over use of imagesIn a memorandum of law attached to the dismissal, Sharp acknowledged that college basketball and football are “big business.”“Many believe that ‘amateur’ when applied to college athletes today is a misnomer — an artificial label and anathema, placed on players, like Plaintiffs, whose efforts on the court and field lead to untold riches for others, such as (the TV networks and conferences),” Sharp wrote. “Cogent arguments have been raised that it is time student-athletes share in the bounty, above and beyond any scholarships they may receive.”But, Sharp continued, the issue of player payment isn’t for the court to decide.Instead, it must determine whether sufficient evidence has been put forth to establish the plaintiffs are entitled to compensation for performing in televised games. Sharp ruled the group of former players failed to do so.Nine of the athletes who filed the suit have ties to Tennessee. The group includes three former Vanderbilt football players — Javon Marshall, Eric Samuels and Steven Clarke — as well as ex-Tennessee football players Rod Wilks, Byron Moore and Marlon Walls.“I agreed to be a plaintiff in this lawsuit because ESPN doesn’t own my image — I do,” Marshall, a native of Nashville, said in a press release at the time the suit was filed. “While TV networks and college sports leagues make billions of dollars off the images of college athletes like me, college athletes get no compensation. Nowhere else in America do the creators of a multibillion-dollar enterprise go unpaid for their effort.”Former Chattanooga football player Chaz Moore and former Tennessee State basketball player Patrick Miller were also plaintiffs in the suit, as was Nashville native and former University of Maryland Eastern Shore basketball player Chris Conner.All 10 of the plaintiffs participated in college sports between 2008 and 2013.A similar case heard in California is being contested before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals after a judge last year issued an injunction to stop the NCAA from restricting players from licensing their names and images. In doing so, the judge ruled that players could be compensated beyond the value of their scholarships and said that money should be held in a trust payable when the player leaves school.That case, brought by players including former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon, made some of the same arguments as the Tennessee case. It was an initial ruling in favor of the players in an arena that few courts have considered.When it went before the federal appeals court in San Francisco for argument in March, the judges did not seem impressed by the NCAA’s contention that federal case law allows the NCAA to preserve its amateurism system without being subject to antitrust law.However, they did signal that they have questions about whether the players have shown they are being harmed by the NCAA’s refusal to allow athletes to be compensated for the use of their names, images and likenesses in live television broadcasts.Contributing: USA TODAYReach Stacey Barchenger at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Twitter @sbarchenger.

For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been covering several stories from the Italian media saying Juventus have Harry Kane as a target for the summer window. Newspaper Tuttosport does it again today. This time, they say the Old Lady’s number one target is PSG’s Mauro Icardi, with the Tottenham Hotspur star coming next on the list.It’s claimed that Kane has previously shown his loyalty to Spurs, but with the club risking staying out of the Champions League next season, it’s time for him to consider that he may never win a title at the club.Tuttosport once again says Kane would cost around €150m, and the new information we see this time is that they bring back the rumour linking Tottenham to Paulo Dybala.Embed from Getty ImagesThey say Juventus could use the Argentine player in a swap, even though he rejected a deal to join the London side back in the last summer window.Tuttosport says Dybala was worth €62m back then, but given how good his season has been, his price would rise now, and that could help Juve to get Kane.The report, however, doesn’t seem to know if Tottenham would still be interested in Dybala.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

(Reuters) – Indian captain Virat Kohli will be rested for the fourth and fifth one-day international matches against New Zealand as well as the subsequent Twenty20 international series, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) said yesterday. The BCCI is keen to manage Kohli’s workload in the build-up to the World Cup in England and Wales, with India set to continue their preparation for the tournament with a limited-overs home series against Australia starting on Feb. 24.“Considering (Kohli’s) workload in the last few months, the team management and senior selection committee is of the view that it would be ideal for him to get adequate rest ahead of the home series against Australia,” the board said in a statement. Kohli has been in stellar form, scoring 282 runs in the recent test series in Australia to help India end a 71-year wait for a series victory Down Under.He extended his purple patch in the subsequent ODI series, finishing with 153 runs at an average of 51 in three matches, including a match-winning century at the Adelaide Oval. The 30-year-old finished as top scorer in both tests and ODIs with 11 centuries across the formats, and earlier this week won the International Cricket Council’s cricketer, test and ODI player of the year awards.Rohit Sharma, who led India to the Asia Cup title in September last year, has been named stand-in captain and selectors are not planning on calling up a replacement for Kohli.India lead the five-match ODI series against the Kiwis 1-0 after an eight-wicket win in Napier.
Tony Hofbauer took the lead in the Modified main and kept hold of it until Joel Rust ran him down at halfway. Rust was looking strong but soon had Tim Ward and then Thornton bearing down on him. Mueller held on to the runner-up spot and Wollam finished third. Ricky Thornton Jr. was a double winner Friday night at Marshalltown Speedway, topping both IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main events. ((Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photography) Thornton slipped into second and set his sights on the leader. He then made a slide job work with four laps left in the contest to nab the lead. Thornton sailed home to the win, Rust took second and Ward was third. Jarred Daggett led the Stock Car troops in the opening laps only to have Jeff Mueller dig his way to the lead on the bottom at lap three. There was a fierce battle going on behind Mueller as tenth place starter Thornton was now fending off Jeff Wollam, Daggett and Jay Schmidt. Thornton began reeling in Mueller, setting sail on the top of the track, while Mueller held firm to the bottom, and now young Dallon Murty was throwing his hat into the ring as well. Thornton made his top side run work at lap 13 and took over the number one position and then led to the checkers.

By Elaine Ganley THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS – A decade after Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were killed in a Paris car crash, a British coroner’s jury comes to the French capital this week to retrace the lovers’ fatal path in an attempt to put to rest the dark suspicions surrounding their deaths. Although the events leading up to the deaths have already been dissected in two lengthy investigations, the visit today and Tuesday marks the first time an inquest jury has left Britain. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Where the 11-member jury will stay is top secret, and their exact itinerary while the court is “in session” in Paris will not be divulged in advance. It is known, however, that they will visit the Place de l’Alma by the underpass where the Mercedes crashed and the Pitie Salpetiere Hospital where Diana died. “It is very difficult to conduct this sort of visit where you are leaving the protection ? offered by your own legal system,” said a spokesman for the inquest, who asked not to be named in keeping with British procedure. “All of a sudden, we are about to walk down streets in Paris with no legal authority over those people around us.” Under British law, inquests are held when someone dies unexpectedly, violently or of unknown causes. Diana, 36, and Fayed, 42, were killed along with their driver, Henri Paul, when their Mercedes crashed in the Pont d’Alma tunnel shortly after midnight on Aug. 31, 1997.
