Narine open to Tests once action improves – Gayle ready for all formats, pending back injury

first_img REHABILITATION PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Embattled off-spinner, Sunil Narine, could be available again soon for West Indies in the longest version of the game, but first wants to continue fine-turning his action. West Indies head coach, Phil Simmons, said he had spoken to the 27-year-old during the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), who indicated he would make himself available only for the limited overs versions at this stage. Coach Simmons, meanwhile, confirmed that opener Chris Gayle would be available for all formats once he recovered from back surgery. “Speaking with Narine during the Caribbean Premier League, he still wants to be 100 per cent confident about the consistency of his action before returning to Test cricket,” Simmons told the Trinidad Newsday newspaper. CBA PAY STRUCTURE “He noted he is happy with the improvement (in) his action during CPL and is available for West Indies in the limited overs section at present.” Narine has not suited up for the Windies in over a year, with his last appearance coming during Bangladesh’s tour of the Caribbean last year August. His last Test outing was nearly two years ago. His action has since come under heavy scrutiny in the Indian Premier League and he was twice called for a suspect action during the Champions League Twenty20 and subsequently banned from bowling in the final for Kolkata Knight Riders. Narine opted out the West Indies World Cup squad earlier this year to focus on his rehabilitation and was forced to undergo Indian Cricket Board-sanctioned testing on his action before he could turn out for KKR in the 2015 season. West Indies will also have to do without all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and opener Lendl Simmons in the Test format, with the players indicating their unwillingness to return because of the pay structure of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. “I have had good discussions speaking with all the players. Yes, Bravo and Lendl said they don’t want to play Tests for reasons (CBA pay structure) you mentioned, but I’m happy that they were honest about that,” Simmons said. “My position is if you don’t want to play Test cricket for whatever reasons, we won’t select you. But if players openly state they are available for that format, I don’t really want them changing their minds when we select them.” Both Bravo and Lendl Simmons announced their retirement from Tests earlier this year. West Indies travel to Sri Lanka for a Test and one-day series next month.last_img read more

Writers strike after bargaining fails

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “It is unfortunate that they choose to take this irresponsible action,” producers said in a statement. Producers said writers were not willing to compromise on their major demands. The writers union confirmed that talks had ended and that members would strike, but did not have any further comment. The guild earlier announced sweeping plans to picket every major studio in Los Angeles, along with Rockefeller Center in New York, where NBC is headquartered. The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers previously called a writers’ strike “precipitous and irresponsible.” The guilds had been preparing for these negotiations for years, hiring staff with extensive labor union experience, and developing joint strategies and a harder line than producers have seen in decades. “We haven’t shown particular resolve in past negotiations,” said John Bowman, the WGA’s chief negotiator. “The sea change is that this is an enormously galvanizing issue and two, that the new regime at the guild actually has a plan, has an organization and a structure to respond to something.” The writers are the first union to bargain for a new deal this year. Their contract expired Wednesday. In past years, actors have almost always gone first, although the Directors Guild of America, which is seen as the least aggressive of the three guilds, has sometimes taken the lead. Whatever deal was struck first was usually accepted by the others. The guilds are aware that if writers fail to win concessions involving DVDs and the Internet, actors may have to take up the fight. “This is an issue that touches every member of this guild and every member of the Screen Actors Guild as well,” said Carlton Cuse, executive producer of the ABC drama “Lost.” Consumers are expected to spend $16.4 billion on DVDs this year, according to Adams Media Research. By contrast, studios could generate only $158 million from selling movies online and about $194 million from selling TV shows over the Web, although those numbers are expected to skyrocket in coming years. Writers only get about 3 cents on a typical DVD retailing for $20. Studios argue that it is too early to know how much money they can make from offering entertainment on the Internet, cell phones, iPods and other devices. Hollywood unions have long regretted a decision made in 1984 to accept a small percentage of home video sales because studios said the technology was untested and that costs were high. The guilds have tried and failed for two decades to increase video payments, even as DVDs have become more profitable for studios than box office receipts. The first casualty of the strike would be late-night talk shows, which are dependent on current events to fuel monologues and other entertainment. Daytime TV, including live talk shows such as “The View” and soap operas, which typically tape about a week’s worth of shows in advance, would be next to feel the impact. The strike will not immediately impact production of movies or prime-time TV programs. Most studios have stockpiled dozens of movie scripts, and TV shows have enough scripts or completed shows in hand to last until early next year.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Writers and studios broke off talks late Sunday after East Coast members of the writers union declared they were officially on strike, the group representing producers said. Last-ditch negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers ended after about 11 hours. Producers said writers refused a request to “stop the clock” on a planned strike while talks continued. last_img read more

Mother criticized for Spears sisters’ folly

first_imgNEW YORK – As Britney Spears was shaving her head, popping in and out of drug rehab, flashing her nether regions and otherwise shocking us over the past year, fresh-faced tween star Jamie Lynn was the scandal-free Spears sister. Now she’s a pregnant 16-year-old. And the question everyone’s asking is this: Where the heck was Mom? We all know it’s often not fair to blame a parent for a child’s wayward ways. But Jamie Lynn’s predicament, piled on top of Britney’s woes, certainly made it seem as if a critical mass of evidence was gathering against Lynne Spears’ parenting skills. (Maybe that’s why her publisher announced that her book – about being a mom and due on Mother’s Day – is on indefinite hold.) Across the Web, the gloves were off Wednesday, if they’d ever been on. “Is Lynne Spears an even worse mother than Britney?” asked celebrity editor Bonnie Fuller on The Huffington Post. She excoriated her for apparently never having had “the talk” with her daughters: the talk about birth control and the dangers of unprotected sex. (Jamie Lynn, the star of Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” told OK! magazine that she was 12 weeks pregnant and the father was 19-year-old boyfriend Casey Aldridge.) 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champEven worse than an apparent lack of parental guidance, for many, was the possibility that the Spears family stood to profit financially from the pregnancy story. A spokesman for OK! magazine, which routinely pays celebrities for their cooperation, would not comment on whether it had paid for the story. “The sad thing is that you now have a second daughter with a career built on scandal, and a mother who is leading the charge,” said Janice Min, veteran celebrity-watcher and editor of US Weekly. To be sure, Lynne Spears isn’t the only parent in the entertainment industry to be accused of imbuing less-than-stellar values in her children. Britney’s occasional partying buddies, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, and their families have undergone similar scrutiny. In a number of Hollywood cases, Min noted, the table gets turned as youngsters – successful too early in life – become the main breadwinners in a family. The power dynamic shifts. In other cases, it might just be that fame is intoxicating and the parents get sucked up in the desire to make the most of it, sometimes partying and drinking along with their offspring. “This is such a strong case for why you should be a parent and not a friend,” said Janet Chan, editor in chief of Parenting magazine. “A friend can teach your kid to make farting noises. A parent makes the rules, sets a role model. I think it’s the No. 1 parenting issue today. Too often parents feel guilty about working too many hours … and they err in thinking they should be friends rather than parents.” last_img read more

Inmates shuffled after violence

first_imgHundreds of county jail inmates were being transferred to the state corrections system after a series of racially motivated brawls killed two inmates and rocked the county jail system for more than a week, authorities said Monday. “We are in the process of getting all the prisoners we can out of here and into the state prison system,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s Chief Marc Klugman said Monday. About 200 inmates already have been moved out and an additional 400 were expected to be transferred this week, said Klugman, head of the nation’s largest jail system. “We are trying to stop all this fighting,” sheriff’s Deputy Alba Yates said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant The county jail system, which held 18,425 inmates as of Monday morning, remained on lockdown, meaning restricted movement within the jails and a loss of privileges such as visiting rights, Yates said. The latest inmate death occurred Sunday afternoon after a fight between four Hispanic and two black prisoners in a six-man cell at the downtown Men’s Central Jail. A 38-year-old black inmate collapsed and died after the fight. Another black inmate was killed Feb. 4 in racial fighting at the Pitchess Detention Center’s North Facility in Castaic, north of Los Angeles. On Sunday, two fights between black and Hispanic inmates broke out at the Pitchess facility. Five inmates suffered minor injuries before the fights were broken up with tear gas and pellet weapons. No deputies were hurt. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

CASSIDY SENSATION: FANS REACT WITH ANGER
