Theunis de Bruyn scored his very first Examination century, in his 6th suit, to earn Sri Lanka benefit their collection win. Yet he can not avoid the unavoidable. The hosts finished up triumph 40 mins after lunch on the 4th day, to secure the collection 2-0.

Sri Lanka’s rewriters took all 20 gates in the suit, as well as 37 of South Africa’s 40 gates in the collection. Dilruwan Perera ended up as the joint leading wicket-taker with 16 scalps, degree with Keshav Maharaj, South Africa’s various other standout entertainer from the 2nd Examination. Rangana Herath, playing in his penultimate collection probably, took 12 gates throughout both suits, consisting of a second-innings six-for in Colombo, his 12 th five-wicket take the 4th innings of a suit.

Herath made up both South Africa’s primary resistors on the 4th day– de Bruyn as well as Temba Bavuma. Both shared South Africa’s very first century stand of the collection, as well as came to be the only 2 gamers in their line-up to raise fifties on the excursion. Their 123- run stand is the greatest by a South African set in the 4th innings of a suit in Asia. It took the Examination right into an 11 th session, yet South Africa still shed inside 4 days.

On the proof of South Africa’s previous 3 innings, Sri Lanka would certainly have been warranted in assuming they would certainly take the continuing to be 5 gates rapidly on the 4th early morning, yet they were made to wait up until 10 mins prior to lunch for an advancement. De Bruyn as well as Bavuma were certain on the move shot as well as compelled Sri Lanka to look even more compared to their 3 primary rewriters, with Suranga Lakmal having his very first dish of the suit in the 55 th over, as well as Dhananjaya de Silva as well as Danushka Gunathilaka both transforming their arms over.

De Bruyn nearly sent out a Herath shipment right into the hands of Angelo Mathews at slip yet the following sphere he dealt with, he punched with the covers to raise his first Examination fifty, in 118 rounds.

Both batsmen expanded in self-confidence as the session took place, regardless of the variety of times Sri Lanka’s bowlers appeared to have the much better of them. Herath defeated Bavuma on the front foot typically yet the batsman bisected square leg as well as great leg to send out a Herath shipment to the limit; Herath likewise attracted a cutting edge from de Bruyn that dropped risk-free yet de Bruyn developed authority with shots like the manage Lakmal to square leg. Bavuma’s half-century came off 69 rounds, as well as he might have been looking at a long-overdue 2nd Examination hundred yet, with lunch impending, pressed ahead to a Herath shipment as well as was captured behind.

Quinton de Kock opened his account with a reverse-sweep, which recommended his time in the center can be enjoyable, yet it upright the stroke of lunch. De Kock was broken down lbw to a Herath shipment as well as the batsman assessed. Replays revealed “umpires call” on leg stump to finish a frustrating excursion for de Kock, that racked up 53 runs in 4 innings.

De Bruyn might have been worried regarding lacking companions as his hundred came close to yet Kagiso Rabada worked out the 2nd brand-new sphere well to remain with him for an eighth-wicket stand of34 Rabada also flaunted his very own expertise, with a roaring 6 over Herath’s head. De Bruyn raised his century off 228 rounds with a paddle to great leg as well as was dismised 4 rounds later on, leaving an arm sphere, to offer Herath his 5th.

Gleyber Torres A Late Scratch From Monday’s Game Due To Being ‘Under The Weather’, Judge In Lineup For 53Rd Straight Day
google news

ARLINGTON —  Gleyber Torres was a late scratch from the Yankees’ lineup on Monday as they began a four-game series over the next three days. Torres was in the original lineup playing second and hitting third. Aaron Boone said that he was just “not feeling great, under the weather.”

With the Yankees having clinched the No. 2 seed in the American League playoffs and already won the AL East, this is the time to take those days to get better. The Yankees’ manager is going to try and get some players days off. That started Monday night with Anthony Rizzo, Harrison Bader and Jose Trevino having the night off.

But, Aaron Judge was back in there for his 53rd consecutive start and still chasing history. Judge is tied with Roger Maris for the AL and Yankees single-season home run record of 61.

And he may stay in there until he hits No. 62, Boone indicated.

“A lot is contingent on that. So I don’t have a plan in place yet. He’s in there today. And then we’ll just, he and I’ll get together after the game and have those conversations and decide what the best course is moving forward,” Boone said.

Judge has four more games to try and set a new mark. He is hitting .233 with one homer, 18 walks and 14 strikeouts since hitting his 60th homer on September 20. The Yankees’ slugger has reached base safely in 30 straight games, dating back to Aug. 29 in Anaheim when he hit his 50th homer. He’s slashing .398/.562/.847 with 20 extra base hits, 21 RBI, 30 runs and 37 walks in that span.

The Yankees do have a five-day break that comes with the first-round bye in the playoffs, which Boone takes into consideration when playing Judge.

“Yeah, so I’m not worried about the physical part of it. Sure, I’d love for him to do it and then really be able to get him out of there, but for right now moving forward, these next few days, they’ll just be him and I kind of get together after the game.”

Boone said there is a chance that Judge could play both games of Tuesday’s doubleheader if he hasn’t reached 62 homers.

NO NEWS IS?

Ron Marinaccio had an MRI, CT scan and an examination on his right shin Monday morning and did not rejoin the team in Texas before the game.

“It’s just reading it and what it means,” Boone said. “He’s not here. So we’ll see what we have here. Hopefully, we’ll know something in the next couple hours.”

Marinaccio has stepped up, making 40 appearances and pitching to a 2.05 ERA in his rookie season.

LEMAHIEU FEELS READY

DJ LeMahieu has played just twice since missing 21 games with right big and second-toe inflammation, but the veteran infielder thinks he will be able to play effectively in the playoffs.

“It feels a little bit better than a couple of weeks ago. But I don’t think it’s gonna go away,” LeMahieu said. “So I just have to manage it.”

LeMahieu has these four games, which he’d like to play in, to get his timing back. He will also have the five-day break between the end of the regular series and the Division Series.

“It’s still too early. I mean, these few days here will be important to have him back in there today,” Boone said. “I’ll probably play in just half or two thirds of the game today. So we’ll just continue to see what it looks like and how it’s bouncing back.”

LeMahieu, who has four years left on his $90 million deal with the Yankees, has been a key cog in the Bombers offense the last few years. The contact hitter, who won the batting title in 2020, usually leads off. The Bombers missed his presence last season when he was shut down in September with a sports hernia.

In a world where nearly everyone is a plastic surgery lover, it is admirable to see icons like Ashanti advocating body positivity such as exercising and healthy eating.

The “Foolish” singer prior to her new song release and 41st birthday has revealed a new body that fans are proud of and admire. According to her rep, it’s an all-natural body kind courtesy of dieting and exercise.

The rep also added that the 41-year-old award-winning singer has lost a whopping 15 pounds so fans should get ready for a dazzling body in a few days. Looks like Ashanti is going all Adele on us and we can’t wait.

Via Media Take Out:

‘R&B singer Ashanti turns 41 years old in just a few days. And according to Ashanti’s reps, she’s been dieting heavily and working out religiously to make sure that her body is in tip top shape when she rings in a new born year.

Oh, and Ashanti’s people wanted Media Take Out to know that she lost 15 pounds all of her body parts are 100% natural.

Media Take Out learned that Ashanti is planning on releasing some new music – and re-record some of her old tracks, and plans a new world tour to go along with it.

Here is more on Ashanti’s career:

In 2002, Ashanti released her eponymous debut album, which sold over 505,000 copies throughout the U.S. in its first week of release. The album earned her many awards, including eight Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, and a Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Contemporary R&B Album. The album has since been certified triple platinum in the United States and sold six million copies worldwide by the end of 2003.

The lead single for the album, “Foolish”, was a critical and commercial success; it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. With “Foolish”, she became the second artist (after The Beatles) to have their first three chart entries in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously. Ashanti wrote and sang for Jennifer Lopez’s “Ain’t It Funny (Murder Remix)”, which also reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Aside from music, Ashanti has also acted in various productions. In 2005, she made her feature film debut in Coach Carter alongside Samuel L. Jackson, as well as starring as Dorothy Gale in the made-for-television film The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, which attracted nearly 8 million viewers when it premiered. She has since appeared in the films John Tucker Must Die (2006) and Resident Evil: Extinction (2007).

Can we all take inspiration from the award-winning singer, pay attention to our diet and add a little exercise?

Magic’s Paolo Banchero makes preseason debut; Franz Wagner sits vs. Grizzlies

Magic’s Paolo Banchero Makes Preseason Debut; Franz Wagner Sits Vs. Grizzlies
google news

Paolo Banchero has experienced many firsts since the Orlando Magic selected him with the No. 1 pick in June’s NBA draft.

His first summer-league game, media day and practice during training camp have been notable moments.

Now he can add his preseason NBA debut to the list — Monday night’s exhibition at the Memphis Grizzlies.

“Obviously, it’s something I’ve been waiting for for a while,” Banchero said ahead of Monday’s game. “Excited to get on an NBA court in an NBA arena and just play a game. I’ve been waiting for a long time. Summer league was a step, but it wasn’t the real thing. So, happy to be here.”

In addition to the already-known absences of Markelle Fultz (left big toe), Gary Harris (left knee) and Jonathan Isaac (left knee), Admiral Schofield (sore left knee) and Franz Wagner (rest after EuroBasket play) were ruled out for Monday.

“A lot of that is monitoring his workload,” coach Jamahl Mosley said of Wagner. “He averaged about 29 minutes over there and just getting acclimated back to what we’re doing here. Making sure we’re staying on top of it.”

Banchero, Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs, Mo Bamba and Wendell Carter Jr. started against Memphis.

Monday’s game was the first of five preseason games the Magic will play before kicking off the regular season against the Pistons on Oct. 19 in Detroit.

Orlando will play the Spurs in San Antonio Thursday in its next preseason game before matching up against the Mavericks in Dallas Friday.

The Magic wrap up their preseason slate with home games vs. the Grizzlies (Oct. 11) and Cleveland Cavaliers (Oct. 14).

For second-year coach Mosley, preseason is about experimenting with different lineups and combinations while also continuing to lay the foundation that was started last season and seeing where players’ understandings of the team’s concepts are.

“It’s our ability to see if they’re grasping the things we’ve asked from them from last year,” Mosley said. “The level of consistency we’re asking them to play with; how they do things from what we learned last year. That’s the idea of leveling up — making sure they understand what we put in and how fast they can pick it up.”

Radio announcer

Ahead of Monday’s game, the Magic officially named Jake Chapman as Orlando’s radio play-by-play announcer.

Chapman began his career with the Magic in 2006 as a radio intern before serving as the team’s radio producer from 2009-14.

He’s entering his 10th season with the Magic after stints as the pregame and postgame host and executive producer of the Detroit Pistons Radio Network and a producer and host for 92.3 The Fan and the Cleveland Browns Radio Network.

Chapman, who returned to the Magic in 2019, also serves as the team’s radio producer, pregame and postgame radio host for the Magic Radio Network.

Naver agrees to acquire fashion market Poshmark for $1.2 billion • TechCrunch

Naver Agrees To Acquire Fashion Market Poshmark For $1.2 Billion • Techcrunch
google news

Naver, the South Korean search giant, today announced plans to acquire second-hand clothing marketplace Poshmark for $1.2 billion in cash. The deal values ​​Poshmark’s publicly traded shares at $17.90 – a 15% premium to today’s closing price – and the companies expect it to close by the first quarter of 2023, subject to Poshmark shareholder approval and “the satisfaction of certain other customary closing conditions”.

If the transaction is successful, Poshmark will become a stand-alone subsidiary of Naver led by CEO Manish Chandra and Poshmark’s current management team. It will also continue to operate under its existing brand and maintain its staff, user base, and headquarters in Redwood City, CA.

In a press release, Naver and Poshmark lay out several arguments as to why the deal makes sense for both parties. By acquiring Poshmark, Naver hopes to capitalize on the service’s growing social shopping platform, where users buy and sell clothes online, with its “technological prowess”. As for Poshmark, it is supposed to benefit from Naver’s image recognition and smart goal search technologies, which Naver says will enable the shopping platform to offer new search, recommendation and shopping that allow users to find clothes by searching colors, designs and materials and identifying where to find products by scanning clothes using their phone’s camera.

Naver also touts its robust ad serving and payments infrastructure, saying Poshmark will be able to leverage it to better analyze sales statistics and serve international customers. The long-term plan is to – with the support of Naver – expand Poshmark’s business into other developed markets in Asia and elsewhere where Naver has significant business holdings, in part by integrating some of the live shopping services from Naver to the Poshmark platform. At the same time, Poshmark will leverage Naver’s U.S. footprint, which includes digital comics portal Webtoon Entertainment and online storytelling platform Wattpad.

Naver optimistically predicts the acquisition could boost Poshmark’s annual revenue “beyond” 20% and save the company $30 million in annual run rates within two years.

Poshmark CEO Manish Chandra said in a press release:

The opportunity to join forces with Naver – one of the most innovative and successful internet companies in the world – is a testament to the strength of our brand, our operating model and what we have built over the decade with our talented team and incredible community. . Our industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and we’re excited to continue leading the future of shopping by providing our community with an unparalleled experience that’s simple, social, fun and sustainable. This is a very attractive opportunity for our employees, who will benefit from being part of a larger global organization with shared values ​​and complementary strengths. This transaction also delivers significant and immediate value to our shareholders. Longer term, as part of Naver, we will benefit from their financial resources, significant technology capabilities and leading presence across Asia to expand our platform, improve our products and user experiences and penetrate new and vast markets. I look forward to partnering with Naver as we take our business into its next phase of growth.

Naver CEO Choi Soo-Yeon said:

The combination will create the strongest platform to power communities and reshape commerce. Poshmark is America’s definitive fashion brand that provides a social network to buy and sell clothes. Naver’s cutting-edge technology in search, AI recommendation and e-commerce tools will help propel the next phase of Poshmark’s global growth. Poshmark is a natural fit for our business – our two companies share a common set of values ​​and vision around content, community and empowerment. The combination of Naver and Poshmark will immediately put us at the forefront of creating a new socially responsible and sustainable shopping experience designed around sellers of all sizes and interests – from individual sellers and influencers to professional sellers, brands and specialty shops – and a large, loyal and highly engaged social community. We are excited to work closely with Manish and his talented team to create lasting value for all of our stakeholders.

Poshmark’s exit comes more than a decade after it was founded in 2011. Chandra – alongside Tracy Sun, Gautam Golwala and Chetan Pungaliya – started the business out of Chandra’s garage, funding it in part with proceeds from sales from Chandra’s former company, social shopping startup Kaboodle, to Heart. Prior to its Nasdaq listing at a valuation of over $3 billion, Poshmark raised over $160 million in venture capital from venture capital firms such as Temasek, Menlo Ventures, GGV Capital and Mayfield.

Poshmark claims to have over 80 million registered users.

Nia Long Dumps Ime Udoka As He Faces Sanctions From Boston Celtic For Sleeping With A Staff Member

Ime Udoka’s Sidepiece Handled His Travel Arrangements Including Nia Long’s Move To Boston
google news

Looks like the counseling didn’t go well as Nia Long has finally dumped Ime Udoka for cheating on her with one of his staff members.

If you recall, TGS reported on Ime Udoka‘s affair that sent their relationship to their pastor for ‘repairs’. However, it appears the pastor did a terrible job or made Nia realize what an a** her ex-partner is. A man who puts his job on the line for “2 minutes” pleasure is surely not worth it and Nia grasped just that.

Besides, what will a 51-year-old successful actress do with a cheating partner? Nia allegedly left together with their 12-year-old son. And Udoka is now left to his fate.

In addition to his family, Ime Udoka is likely to lose his job as the head coach of Boston Celtic – over a violation of organizational guidelines as the affair is allegedly not entirely consensual. An affair to die for huh?

Via Media Take Out:

Gorgoeus actress Nia Long is officially back on the market. Media Take Out has learned that Nia has decided to officially end things with her estranged “spiritual’ husband, Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka.

And according to one of Nia’s close friends, Nia is getting over her relationship, by listening to plenty of Glo Rilla tracks – especially her hit song “FNF.”

Nia’s friend told Media Take Out exclusively, “Nia is not trying to get tangled up into his mess, she left him alone. She is f**k n***a free.”

The friend also told us that right now Nia has pulled her son out of school in Boston and moved back to Los Angeles – she is moving on with her life.

Yesterday TMZ cameras caught up with Nia and she laughed when asked whether she plans on “working thing out” with her disgraced former partner.

Nia Long is an actress best known for her work in Black cinema, Long rose to prominence after starring in the film Boyz n the Hood (1991). And for her portrayal of Beullah “Lisa” Wilkes on the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1991–1995). She then appeared in Friday (1995), as well as the 1997 films Love Jones and Soul Food.

Long is also known for her roles in the films The Best Man (1999). And its sequel The Best Man Holiday (2013), as well as Big Momma’s House (2000) and its sequel Big Momma’s House 2 (2006). On television, she portrayed Sasha Monroe on the crime drama series Third Watch (2003–2005). And has starred on the Fox drama series Empire (2017), and the CBS action series NCIS: Los Angeles (2017-2018).

She has received several accolades, including three NAACP Image Awards and a Black Reel Award.

Nia Long who is not a big fan of marriage apparently – is not ready to deal with this sh** and it looks like Ime Udoka will be dealing with his mess alone with no family and likely a loss of job.
