“Although this is a very sad day, I have comfort and peace that he is in a better place,” said the actor’s son Christopher.

“He was the best father anyone could ask for. He was my coach, my mentor, my voice of reason, my best friend, my best man at my wedding, and my hero.

“My wife said something powerful and showed what kind of man he was. She said, ‘Tony was such a kind man. He had such a big heart and I’ve never heard Tony say anything bad or negative about anyone.’ “

The actor’s team said they received “confirmed” information from Christopher about Dow’s death.

“We have received confirmation from Christopher, Tony’s son, that Tony passed away this morning, with his loving family by his side to accompany him on this journey,” Dow’s team posted on Facebook.

“We know the world is collectively saddened by the loss of this incredible man. He gave so much to all of us and was loved by so many.

“One fan put it best: ‘It’s rare that there’s a person as universally loved as Tony.’

“Our hearts go out to Tony’s wife Lauren who will miss her 42 year old soul mate. To his son Christopher, who will greatly miss his father, who was also his best friend.

“For his daughter-in-law, Melissa, who loved him like her own father. For his granddaughter, Tyla, who will no doubt pass on her grandfather’s kind soul.”

The statement continued: “To his brother Dion and sister-in-law Judy and to all his extended family and friends.

“Words cannot express how much we will all feel his absence, but we will cherish the memories he left for each and every one of us.”

EARLY ANNOUNCEMENT

Dow’s team falsely announced his death on Tuesday, telling TMZ that his wife “believed her husband was dead — and told his management.”

Lauren Shulkind said that due to some health issues that arose the night before Tuesday, she told several people close to her that her husband had died.

The actor’s wife said she had been distraught and saddened by his health struggle for the past few months.

Despite the excitement, Dow died Wednesday after being in hospice care at his home.

In the now-deleted Facebook post, Dow’s team wrote: “It is with an extremely heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved Tony this morning.

“Tony was a beautiful soul – kind, compassionate, funny and humble. It was truly a pleasure just to be around him. His soft voice and unpretentious manner were instantly reassuring and one couldn’t help but love him.

“The world has lost an amazing human being, but we are all richer for the memories he left us. From the warm memories of Wally Cleaver to those of us lucky enough to know him personally – thank you Tony.

“And thank you for the reflections on a simpler time, the laughs, the friendship and for making us all feel like you were a big brother. We will miss you.”

Dow and his wife announced his recurrence of liver cancer on May 5.

“Unfortunately, Tony has been diagnosed with cancer again. He approaches this reality so bravely, but it’s really heartbreaking. We would like to thank you in advance for your thoughtful thoughts.”

Chicago White Sox make costly mistakes in loss to Kansas City Royals – Reuters Sports News

Chicago White Sox Make Costly Mistakes In Loss To Kansas City Royals - Reuters Sports News

Chicago White Sox starter Johnny Cueto has pitched for winning teams throughout his career, including 2015 World Series champion Kansas City Royals.

After another night of missed chances in an 8-3 loss Wednesday to the Royals at Kauffman Stadium, the Sox had to think about what it would take to show the consistency so many have been waiting for all year.

“I think we need to be more aggressive and show more swagger,” Cueto said through an interpreter. “We have to go out there and play and play hard and show what we can do.

“We have to fight. We have to show the fight, we have to show the fire that we have – if we have it.

The Sox broke through offensively with three runs in the top of the sixth to take a two-point lead. The Royals tied the game in the bottom of the sixth and took the lead in the seventh on MJ Melendez’s solo home run against Jake Diekman. They walked away with four in the eighth.

“I see it as having a two-point lead and that’s part of the game,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Sometimes we had rallies that started with a ball hitting a sack or a blooper. It happened for them.”

The Sox were trailing 1-0 when they charged with one out in the sixth.

Gavin Sheets, who flew to the left in a similar situation in the second, hit a ground second with an exit speed of 106.1 mph. Michael Massey was unable to field the hard hit ball cleanly and two runs were scored on the play, which was originally ruled a hit before it was changed to an error.

The Sox tacked on a third run on a two-out RBI single from Josh Harrison.

The Royals responded with two goals late in the sixth.

Bobby Witt Jr. hit a field single, beating the third pitch after a slight double clutch from Yoán Moncada. Witt scored first on Salvador Perez’s double.

Perez advanced to third on a throwing error from Moncada, who made a good field play on Hunter Dozier’s field but dismissed first baseman José Abreu. Perez scored on a two-out single from Massey.

“I fought,” Cueto said. “Just two balls on the floor that unfortunately Moncada couldn’t finish those games. But I kept fighting. I did what I could.”

Cueto allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits with four strikeouts and one walk in six innings.

“Part of baseball,” La Russa said. “And he almost got away with it. It’s a tough way to get the guys down to the basics. A tough way to give up racing from Johnny’s perspective.

Diekman has been effective since the Sox acquired him in a trade from the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 1, striking out 10 of 12 batters in the face of six strikeouts in his first four outings.

He gave up the home run to Melendez on a 1-2 pitch.

The Royals added the insurance runs in the eighth against Jimmy Lambert, who had allowed no runs in his last 12 outings.

“Diekman made a mistake and (Melendez) knocked him out of the park,” La Russa said. “And then it got away from us in round eight. It wasn’t the way Lambert pitched. He is still very good. As soon as he rests, he’ll be back there.

The Sox haven’t produced anything offensively outside of the sixth. While Royals starter Kris Bubic didn’t factor in the decision, he lowered his career ERA against the Sox to 2.72 in seven outings (six starts) after allowing one earned run on seven hits in 5⅔ sleeves.

“You look at life, this guy was tough on us,” La Russa said. “We had all three, I was proud of that. Even the first time Sheets hit the ball in left field, he couldn’t score. And he touched the ball (in the sixth). (They ) pitched well against us, but we had a chance to win this game just got away from us.

The Sox fell to one game over .500 at 56-55. They are third in American League Central, 2½ games out of first place.

“Not yet,” La Russa said of enduring success, “doesn’t mean you can’t and won’t.”

He thinks that always happens for the Sox.

“Because I know what’s in it,” he says. “If we didn’t have that, we would have been buried long ago. The fact that we are still hanging on and fighting tells you that we can do something good that is consistent.

The Sox trailed 1-0 when they loaded the bases with one out in the sixth.

Gavin Sheets, who flied out to left in a similar situation in the second, smacked a grounder to second with an exit velocity of 106.1 mph. Michael Massey couldn’t cleanly field the hard-hit ball, and two runs scored on the play, which was originally ruled a hit before being changed to an error.

Exchange platform Zerodha’s Kite mobile app was not working on several devices while prices were not updating on many others, users complained on Twitter on Thursday morning.

#zerodhadown trended on Twitter within minutes as users took to the microblogging site to post screenshots of the issues they were facing.

However, Zerodha shared an update on their website at 9:21 a.m. to say that the issue with Kite has been resolved.
“Some of our users may not be able to view live streams on the Kite mobile app. We are reviewing this and will fix it shortly. Please use Kite Web in the meantime. Order placement is not affected “said the brokerage.

While a few Twitter users said that if the Zerodha issue hadn’t happened, they wouldn’t have incurred any losses while others appreciated the platform for resolving the issue within minutes.

However, several users said they turn to other platforms like Angel One or Finvasia to trade.

Also earlier in November 2021, users encountered difficulties in trading due to a technical issue on Zerodha’s trading platform. The brokerage faced anger from customers as they complained about prices and trading freezes on its platform during trading hours.
