It was also announced that Intel will sponsor future Overwatch competitive events as well as the OWL. Image courtesy of BlizzardThe release outlines that all players will be using a combination of Intel & HP gear when competing at the LA Arena for the upcoming season. The PCs will be powered by Intel’s i7 Processors and the gaming PC and displays will be provided by OMEN by HP. Pete Vlastelica, President & CEO of MLG stated: “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with HP and Intel to ensure that the teams competing professionally in Overwatch are equipped with top-end technology.

‘Proud’ Lampard eyes first Chelsea win in home debut

Posted on by

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Frank Lampard Chelsea managerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Frank Lampard admits his first match as Chelsea manager at Stamford Bridge will be a proud occasion, but only a win against Leicester will make Sunday’s homecoming a truly memorable occasion.After successive defeats in his opening two competitive games in charge, Blues legend Lampard is desperate to get his reign up and running with three points this weekend.The 41-year-old, Chelsea’s record goal-scorer, is certain to get a hero’s welcome from his adoring fans despite the frustrating start to the season.A crushing 4-0 defeat at Manchester United in Chelsea’s opening game of the Premier League campaign was followed by Wednesday’s penalty shoot-out loss to Liverpool in the European Super Cup in Istanbul.Both performances featured moments of promise for Chelsea, but Lampard knows he will be judged on results, making it essential to avoid a third consecutive defeat when Leicester visit west London.“I’m proud to manage this club. I’ve been back a few times and had great support,” Lampard said.“It will be an emotional, special day for me but the important thing is trying to get the three points and that’s what I am really worried about.”“There were good parts of the Man United game that got lost in the result but not lost on me — against Liverpool, we played one of the top teams in the world and really matched them.”Lampard has only one season of managerial experience in the second tier with Derby, but his strong connection with Chelsea persuaded owner Roman Abramovich to hire him in the close-season.It was a bold move and Lampard is enduring a baptism of fire after Chelsea sold star playmaker Eden Hazard while operating under a transfer ban that has forced him to turn to the club’s youngsters.– ‘Big challenge’ –Lampard is still getting settled into the job and he acknowledges Leicester, who opened the season with a goalless draw against Wolves, will pose a stern test to his hopes of a maiden win. “It’s a big game for us in front of our home fans for the first time this season,” Lampard said ahead of the game against Brendan Rodgers’ team.“Leicester are very much a team that should be respected for the players and manager they have got and how they have performed in recent years.“I know Brendan well. He’s a fantastic manager. He’s got a great group of players there. They will be well coached so we are going to have a big challenge.“Our mindset is important. It’s been a strange two games. We can’t think the strong performance on Wednesday will replicate itself just because we walk out on that pitch. It’s important we tackle it head on with a real focus.”Lampard was forced to condemn racist abuse of Tammy Abraham on social media after the young Chelsea striker missed the decisive penalty against Liverpool.It remains to be seen if Abraham returns to the team after he started the United game and was then a substitute against Liverpool as Olivier Giroud came in.Lampard also has German defender Antonio Rudiger and Brazilian winger Willian back in contention after the pair returned to training.Rodgers, who worked in Chelsea’s backroom staff during Lampard’s playing career, believes the inexperienced manager will prove a success in the long-term.“In the games I have seen, Chelsea have played with a good tempo and intensity,” Rodgers said.“Frank understands the importance of giving those young players a chance, but he also knows he has to win matches and get results, and I believe he will do well there.”last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgThe Florida Department of Health confirmed Wednesday that some private labs were not reporting negative COVID-19 test results to them, as required by the state.That ended up leading to 100 percent positivity rates being reported for those labs.Department of Health spokeswoman Olga Connor told Miami television station WPLG in an email that public and private labs are required to report all of their COVID-19 test results to the state, regardless of whether the tests are positive or negative. “In recent days, the Florida Department of Health noticed that some smaller, private labs weren’t reporting negative test result data to the state,” Connor wrote. “The Department immediately began working with those labs to ensure that all results were being reported in order to provide comprehensive and transparent data.”She went on to say that the Department of Health will continue to educate labs “on the proper protocol for reporting COVID-19 test results.”So far, state health officials have not disclosed how many labs reported incomplete data.last_img read more

21-year runner Harrison runs short one leg

Posted on by

first_imgSCENIC ROUTE—Every year, William Harrison joins thousands of others in the Pittsburgh Marathon. William Harrison can tell you horrific stories of his time as a 911 dispatcher. He can also take you on a journey through his rich family history, most notably holding the distinction of the most degrees from the University of Pittsburgh of any African-American family. But perhaps what he’s most proud of, is being a part of the elite 13, a group of runners who have been through every Pittsburgh Marathon, including the first two Great Races.This year’s race marked Harrison’s 21st marathon. What makes him different from probably most of the others is that he doesn’t train between marathons. In fact, he can’t train. While in high school, Harrison, 59, discovered he had non-cancerous bone growths in his left leg. Four operations and four decades later, his left leg is still the source of constant pain.“If I trained the way people are supposed to train, I probably wouldn’t be able to run the race. I don’t have the strength in my left leg that I do in my right leg,” Harrison said. “That kind of strain on my knee, I just wouldn’t be able to do it. The only thing I can consider training is the last race I ran.”As a former athlete at Westinghouse High School, the loss of strength in his left leg hit Harrison particularly hard. He has spent the rest of his life trying to show people how he has been able to overcome his disability through the power of God.“I ran the Great Race with the hope of telling my surgeon he couldn’t tell me what I can’t do. After I ran the first two Great Races, I called him up. I said is that good enough for you? He said no, I shouldn’t be doing that,” Harrison said. “I ran the first six before he stopped telling me what I couldn’t do.”The Pittsburgh Marathon takes runners on a tour of the city, confronting a variety of neighborhoods, not only the nicest ones. For native Pittsburghers, the sight of familiar landmarks is what inspires them to continue.“Running through Homewood is special. Homewood is in such bad shape,” Harrison said. “In this family you’re born Westinghouse Bulldogs. I use that because Westinghouse is right by mile 18 and most runners will tell you mile 18 is where you hit the wall. There’s no quit in me. There’s no quit in a Bulldog.”Mentally, Harrison’s weak leg has been a counterbalance for his physical shortcomings. Coupled with his devout religious beliefs, he sees his ability to overcome the odds and finish every race as a miracle.“A large part of finishing longer distance races is mental. First and foremost I think about God, I think about all the factors in my life that allowed me to run, I think about being the descendants of slaves,” Harrison said. “Clearly Jesus gave me the power to run with one and a half legs.”Harrison’s story has inspired others including his sons to begin running. Throughout each race he also serves as constant inspiration to his fellow runners.“All I can tell you now with the future of the Pittsburgh Marathon is, if I’m alive, I’ll do it. They start blending together after awhile. After number seven my body was pretty much imprinted with I’m going to do this every year. It can’t be pain because my left leg hurts all the time. Because it hurts all the time it can’t be an excuse,” Harrison said. “I talk to people during the race. I tell them, I’m going to finish this race so you’ve got to finish. There’s no reason I should be finishing this race.”last_img read more

Clippers land new coach in Rivers

Rivers, who had three years and $21 million left on his contract with the Celtics, must also reach an agreement on a new deal with the Clippers.Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said the team had no announcement.The tentative agreement on Sunday wraps up weeks of haggling over the deal and frees Rivers from presiding over the dismantling of the team that won the franchise’s record 17th NBA title in 2008.The Celtics and Clippers have also discussed sending Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles in a package with Rivers for draft choices, center DeAndre Jordan and point guard Eric Bledsoe. But NBA commissioner David Stern nixed those talks this week, saying teams aren’t allowed to trade active players for a coach.A deal for Garnett could still happen, but the teams would have to convince the league that it was a separate deal. The 37-year-old big man has a no-trade clause in the contract that will pay him 23.5 million over the next two years, but it is believed he would waive it to be reunited with Rivers on the West Coast. He has also discussed retiring.Boston could also cut ties with Paul Pierce, the longest-tenured member of the team, who is due to earn $15.3 million next season; he could be bought out for $5 million. Pierce will be 36 by the 2013-14 opener and showed signs of slowing down this season, when he averaged the fewest minutes per game in his career.Rivers took over the Celtics in 2004 in the midst of the longest title drought in franchise history and—with thanks to the New Big Three of Garnett, Pierce and Ray Allen—guided them to the 2008 NBA title. They returned to the NBA Finals two years later, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games.But the Celtics have regressed steadily since then, twice failing to get past the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference playoffs. This year they finished third in the Atlantic Division—they had won it five straight times—and lost to the New York Knicks in the first round.That convinced many that it was time to rebuild—a process Rivers was reluctant to supervise. If the Celtics unload Garnett and Pierce, that would leave them with point guard Rajon Rondo as their only established star.Rivers had the second-longest tenure of any NBA coach to San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich, compiling a 416-305 record in Boston that was the third-most wins in franchise history behind Red Auerbach (795) and Tommy Heinsohn (427). He also spent four-plus seasons with the Orlando Magic and is 587-473 in all.Trades for coaches have occurred about a half-dozen times in NBA history, most recently in 2007 when the Heat received compensation for allowing Stan Van Gundy to go to the Orlando Magic.In 1983, the Chicago Bulls sent a second-round draft pick to Atlanta as compensation for coach Kevin Loughery. The Hawks used that pick to take Glenn “Doc” Rivers. DOC RIVERS (AP photo/Charles Krupa)last_img read more
