The Commonwealth Seems On The Verge Of Shrinking After The Death Of The Queen, Under Charles
google news

“Whatever you think of the Commonwealth – a relic of the colonial era or an institution of modernization – I don’t think the Queen’s commitment to the organization can really be doubted,” Christopher Prior, associate professor of history colonial and postcolonial at the University of Southampton in the UK, said in an email to NBC News.

But in recent years, Britain’s former colonies, particularly countries where black residents were enslaved by their colonial masters, have held the royal family to account, which became fabulously wealthy on the backs of slaves.

So while there were tributes to the Queen across the Commonwealth – on Thursday hundreds of people gathered at an Anglican cathedral in the Ugandan capital of Kampala for a service in honor of Elizabeth – there there was also simmering discontent.

In March, the now heir to the throne, Prince William, his wife, Kate, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex were met with protests and demands for reparations for slavery during a royal tour of the Caribbean who took them to former colonies. Jamaica, Belize as well as the Bahamas.

Many locals were especially furious that their countries were helping to pay for the royal tour.

“Why are we footing the bill for a regime whose rise to ‘greatness’ has been fueled by the extinction, enslavement, colonization (sic) and degradation of the inhabitants of this earth?” said the Bahamas National Reparations Committee in an open letter. “Why are we still being charged?”

In Australia, a Commonwealth country where many revered Queen Elizabeth, the government of newly elected Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has already raised the possibility of holding a referendum to get rid of Charles and the monarchy and become a republic.

The same is true for Canada, where support for a foreign head of state has also eroded.

“I prefer someone from Windsor than the House of Windsor” to be head of state, Flavio Volpe, president of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association of Canada, told Reuters after Elizabeth’s death.

Windsor is a Canadian city just across the Detroit River from Motown.

The sun was already setting on the British Empire when Elizabeth took the throne in 1953. And during her 70-year reign, 17 countries abandoned monarchies and became republics – the latest being the small island nation of Barbados earlier this year – although it continues to be part of the Commonwealth.

With Charles now king, that trend is set to continue, Prior said. And he can’t do much about it.

“I don’t think these conversations that are happening around the world are conversations that the new king would have much control over,” Prior said. “If we have Commonwealth nations becoming republics, that obviously removes even more some of the old Imperial-era ties that originally bound the Commonwealth together.”

After World War II, with many countries gaining independence from Britain, the modern Commonwealth was born.

Dolphins Q&A: Does Bridgewater have QB job locked up regardless of performance? Should Dolphins be worried about Jets?

Dolphins Q&Amp;A: Does Bridgewater Have Qb Job Locked Up Regardless Of Performance? Should Dolphins Be Worried About Jets?
google news

Here’s the latest installment of our Miami Dolphins Q&A, where South Florida Sun Sentinel writers David Furones and Chris Perkins answer questions from readers.

Q (1a): Does Teddy have the job locked regardless of his level of play — @RayF1nkle on Twitter

A: Probably not. Backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is the starter now, with Tua Tagovailoa (concussion protocol) sidelined. But we don’t yet know how coach Mike McDaniel operates in that regard. In general, I’d say very few backups have the job locked up regardless of their level of play. And that’s probably true for the majority of starters, too.

Bridgewater is a good backup because he’s got starting experience and he’s a veteran. I expect he’ll do well enough to keep the job until Tagovailoa returns.

Q (1b): Under what circumstances can we see Skylar Thompson?

A: If Bridgewater doesn’t effectively or consistently get the ball to wide receivers Tyreek Hill or Jaylen Waddle, or if Bridgewater doesn’t give the team a chance to win. The former is self explanatory. You want to get the ball in the hands of your best players. The latter mostly means too many interceptions/turnovers or, perhaps taking too many sacks when he should be getting rid of the ball, things along those lines. Bridgewater is a good leader and seems to have the confidence of his teammates. If Bridgewater loses his hold on the job it’s more likely to be something tangible (interceptions, etc) rather than intangible (loses faith of coaches or teammates, etc).

Q: Should we be worried about the Jets? — @1972wasgreat on Twitter

A: Yes. But let’s not get crazy here. As a fan, you’re not as concerned as you were with New England, Baltimore, Buffalo or Cincinnati. But you definitely give the Jets (2-2) respect. And you worry about the game’s outcome because the Jets are a .500 team as well as an AFC East opponent, meaning they know your personnel very well. Plus, going on the road and starting your backup quarterback isn’t usually a recipe for success.

On top of that, the Jets, who got quarterback Zach Wilson back from a knee injury in their last game, have a decent receiving crew among Garrett Wilson (20 receptions, 255 yards, two touchdowns), Corey Davis (15 receptions, 261 yards, two touchdowns) and Elijiah Moore (15 receptions, 192 yards). Combine that with Miami’s injury concerns in the secondary and there are reasons to keep an eye on things.

If the Dolphins (3-1) play the way they played in the first four games they should be OK. But if they struggle to run the ball, and the defense gives up big pass plays such as it did at Cincinnati, things could get dicey.

Q: Can we see the offense incorporate the run game more while Tua is out? And if so can that lead to the run game being used more when Tua does come back? — @Davis_T94 on Twitter

A: Those are good questions. The Dolphins, who are 30th in rushing at 69.3 yards per game, are trying to get the running game going. Coach McDaniel had San Francisco’s run game No. 7 in the league last year (127.4 yards per game) when he was the 49ers offensive coordinator. And when the Dolphins acquired running backs Raheem Mostert and Chase Edmonds, and added center Connor Williams and left tackle Terron Armstead, you figured there would be a commitment to the run game. That’s still true, but the production hasn’t reflected that commitment.

One thing to remember, and a point I frequently make, is there’s a lot of “new” in the offense and the running game among the new coach, new offense, new offensive coordinator, two new running backs, and two new offensive linemen.

Having said all of that, yes, the Dolphins would love to get the running game going because that would mean they could force defenses to drop a safety in the box to stop the run, which would open up more deep opportunities for Hill and Waddle. Also, with a good running game the quarterback, whether it’s Bridgewater or Tagovailoa, could throw off play-action, which helps their production.

There are numerous benefits to getting the running game going, and the Dolphins would love to reap those benefits regardless of who is playing quarterback.

Q: With Cedrick Willson banged up, when are we gonna see Easy E? — @Dolphinsnation2 on Twitter

A: From listening to wide receivers coach Wes Welker two weeks ago, it appears Erik Ezukanma (Easy E), the rookie fourth-round pick from Texas Tech, isn’t yet ready. They like Ezukanma, but it seems he needs to be more detail-oriented.

Here’s what Welker said:

“I just can’t, I and our whole staff can’t, have that knot in your stomach when he’s out there and say, ‘Is he going to do the right thing? Is he lined up in the right spot? Do we need to call a timeout?’ ” Welker said on Sept. 22.

“All those things are so critical that he is starting to understand it’s not just being more talented. Everybody’s talented. But it’s all about the details and being on point with every single play that you’re out there because one MA (missed assignment) or anything out there can be the difference between winning and losing, and right now that’s just not something that we’re willing to do right now. He’ll get there.”

Q: Do you think target shares remain consistent at WR position with QB change? — @OverEsq on Twitter

A: I think Hill and Waddle continue getting the majority of the targets because they’re your best offensive players. As for who gets more each week, in general it’ll likely be Hill but it also depends on matchups. If they think they have a huge edge for the next two weeks with Waddle and his defender, they’ll go with Waddle. It appears McDaniel is very matchup-oriented in his game plans, perhaps more than any of the previous four Dolphins coaches (Brian Flores, Adam Gase, Joe Philbin, Tony Sparano). We still have a lot to learn about McDaniel, but he seems to be the type who goes with the matchup instead of automatically forcing the ball to a specific player (although you want the ball in Hill’s hands as often as possible).

The more interesting area to watch for targets is the No. 3 offensive option. You’ll never stop feeding the ball to Hill because he’s always a matchup advantage, and Waddle is your clear No. 2. But that third option among players such as Mostert, Edmonds and tight end Mike Gesicki could vary greatly.

Tyler Herro extension viewed as both living in moment and a bridge to Heat’s future

Tyler Herro Extension Viewed As Both Living In Moment And A Bridge To Heat’s Future
google news

For Tyler Herro and the Miami Heat’s front office, the four-year, $130 millon extension for the fourth-year guard announced Sunday came down to salary-cap economics.

To Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, it also came down to demographics.

That balance, in the wake of agreement with Herro, left Spoelstra both confident about living in the moment as well as looking ahead, now that Bam Adebayo, 25, and Herro, 22, are locked into long-term deals.

“I felt very similar about Tyler when we were able to extend Bam,” Spoelstra said, with the agreement with Adebayo reached in 2020. “The cool thing about it is yes, they are the future, but they also are the present and that’s what makes this group unique. We have a lot of different age groups.”

To some, the issue with the Herro extension is that, because of salary-cap rules, it effectively removes the winner of last year’s NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award from the trade table, leaving the Heat with limited avenues to upgrade alongside 36-year-old point guard Kyle Lowry and 33-year-old shooting guard Jimmy Butler.

But to Spoelstra, such is the tradeoff for having bridges to the future.

“I think we have a good balance of the veteran experience, the guys that have been around the league a long time,” said Spoelstra, with his team opening the preseason Tuesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves at FTX Arena. “We have the mid-vets. And then we have the youth movement and the future, who also are really contributing to the now. And then we have our younger development crew.

“And if you could map it out, this is, ideally, how you would try to map out a roster. It doesn’t always work out that way. But Tyler’s really come a long way. It’s really a credit to his drive, his ambition. But his work ethic matches that, and that’s what’s important. And that’s what you’re excited about, because he’ll continue to improve.”

While Herro’s extension doesn’t kick in until the 2023-24 season, he still can be dealt without his current “poison pill” trade restriction as soon as July.

But Herro signed with the intent and desire to stay.

“It’s a really good feeling,” said the No. 14 pick out of Kentucky in the 2019 NBA draft. “When I came here, I had a dream of getting paid by the Heat and being here for a while and bringing a championship here. And we came close, but we haven’t gotten there yet.

“And to be locked in for the next five years means a lot to me, because the goal is still to win a championship and we feel like we can do that.”

Adebayo said it is comforting knowing that the window to make championship runs with Herro has been extended.

“I mean, it’s dope,” he said, “because I felt like he deserved it. He got his bread now. So it’s good to have him around for five more years. You know, the future’s bright for us.”

For now, Herro will play out the season with the $5.7 million that already is on the books from his rookie-scale contract.

Then, Adebayo said, the pressure will rise, just as it did after Adebayo signed his five-year, $163 million extension.

“I told him welcome to the club of whatever we do wrong is his fault,” Adebayo said with a knowing smile. “He’s stepping into that realm now.”

Glad, Herro said, to have such an opportunity.

“To get the extension from the Heat after my third year and be one of the few guys out of my draft class to get extended, it means a lot,” Herro said of the exclusive extension club from the 2019 first round that so far includes himself, Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, Darius Garland, R.J. Barrett and Keldon Johnson. And it’s just the beginning. We’ve got to continue to put the work in and continue to get better.”

To Spoelstra it is an investment on an investment already made.

“It is gratifying for everybody involved, everybody in our organization, for Tyler and his family, his representation,” Spoelstra said. “He’s improved every single year. And this is what we’re about, developing players and then hopefully trying to keep them in our program and to be able to take care of them and compensate them. His ceiling, we don’t know where it’ll be, the way he just continues to improve.”

No sooner was the agreement announced, than Herro posted a GIF of Bugs Bunny counting cash.

“I was just having some fun,” he said. “One of my boys had it ready for me. It was just fun, I was just having fun.”

But there also was a line drawn when it came to humor from one teammate amid the congratulations.

“They all reached out, which meant a lot,” he said. “And then Caleb [Martin] said I have to buy the whole team Rolexes now. I shut that down quick.”

5 things to know about Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe

5 Things To Know About Patriots Quarterback Bailey Zappe
google news

patriots

The rookie went from being buried on the depth board to leading the Patriots offense on Sunday, and his performance drew praise from his teammates.

Despite pressure from players like Green Bay linebacker Rashan Gary, Patriots rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe showed composure in his NFL debut. (Matthew J. Lee/Globe Staff)

The plan for Bailey Zappe in her freshman year seemed pretty straightforward. As the Patriots third-string quarterback, he could learn from watching Mac Jones on Sundays, as well as veteran Brian Hoyer.

And while both were healthy this season, Zappe didn’t even think about getting dressed, let alone seeing the action in a game. He was listed as one of the inactive for each of the first three games of the season. But when Mac Jones was ruled out with an ankle injury for Week 4 against Green Bay, Zappe was brought up to support Hoyer.

He was then spurred into action when Hoyer came out with a head injury in the first quarter and put together a solid day, completing 10 of 15 passes for 99 yards while directing two second-half touchdown passes during of the 27-24 overtime loss against the Packers.

At the very least, Zappe could be in uniform again on Sunday when the Patriots host the Lions, as Jones may miss more action. If Hoyer isn’t cleared to play, Zappe could get the call again.

Here’s a look at the young caller the Patriots selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft last April.

He draws praise from his teammates

Zappe’s ability to come off the bench despite having little practice time with the starters impressed his Patriots teammates.

“I just want to thank Zappe, man,” linebacker Matthew Judon said after the loss at Green Bay. “The way he intensified in that game, I don’t even believe he took that much [practice] reps with the [starters]. The way he played and the balance he had…it’s amazing for a rookie, it’s good for our team. Kudos to him for being ready.

It was a less than ideal situation for his debut – in the middle of a game, on the road, against one of the best teams in the NFC.

“Proud of the way he competed, man,” center David Andrews said. “He went very quickly from thinking he probably wasn’t playing much this year to getting thrown into the mix in a pretty hostile environment against a really good defence. I think he led us well, he did a really good job… just proud of how he competed.

He made progress in pre-season, but had his struggles

“Every day is a learning day for him,” coach Bill Belichick said in August. “He got better every day. Hopefully this will continue. But he’s been good to work with, he works hard, he’s smart and has good skills.

In the preseason opener against the Giants, he struggled early but finished 19 for 32 for 205 yards, including a fourth-quarter touchdown that culminated in a throw to Lil’Jordan Humphrey.

For the preseason, he completed 45 of 71 passes for 462 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. In Game 2 of the preseason, Panthers cornerback Tae Hayes returned one of the interceptions for a touchdown.

Zappe, who grew up in Victoria, Texas, played at Houston Baptist, making nine starts as a freshman and starting all 11 games as a sophomore. In 2019, he led the nation with 35 touchdown passes as a junior.

After throwing 15 touchdown passes in four games in 2020, he took advantage of the NCAA’s extra year of COVID-19 eligibility and dated Western Kentucky. There he was able to continue working with Zach Kittley, who had been his offensive coordinator at Houston Baptist before moving to the same position with the Hilltoppers.

In Western Kentucky, he completed nearly 70% of his passes for 5,967 yards and 62 touchdowns in 2021. He set FBS season marks for yards (previously held by BJ Symonds) and touchdowns (formerly owned by Joe Burrow).

He topped the Wonderlic test among QBs

Zappe scored 35, just ahead of Sam Howell (34) and Malik Willis (32) and well ahead of everyone else whose results surfaced in the league intelligence test.

He is considered a smart quarterback who makes smart decisions with football. Running Kittley’s Air Raid system played on his brain strength. He has excellent recognition skills and throws a very catchable ball.

He adjusts arm slots and can insert balls into precise windows without needing a ton of speed, The Globe’s Jim McBride wrote ahead of last April’s draft.

Screening report

Here’s his pre-draft scouting report, courtesy of Field Level Media.

The preview: Zappe has one of the best resumes in college quarterback history if based on production alone. He was a dominant force in the FCS in 2019 and 2020 but took his game to new heights as a member of the Hilltoppers. He earned Conference USA MVP honors in 2021, taking Western Kentucky to its first C-USA Conference Championship appearance since 2016 and earning a Senior Bowl invite.

The strong points : There’s no shortage of system quarterbacks in the record books with fast, fast upside down calls, but Zappe is more than numbers. He is able to make beautiful tactile throws, and knows how to change trajectory effectively. Zappe has an exit with no loss of movement, and he is a good short passer who leads his targets well. He is also incredibly confident and ready to take pictures.

The weaknesses: Zappe is an undersized passer who does not meet typical height thresholds (he is 6 feet tall). Arm strength is well below average for an NFL quarterback and will be a tough hurdle to overcome. He’s also a limited athlete who will struggle to make plays and survive in the pocket when the going gets tough.

Pro Comp: Gardner Minshew, Eagles

Zappe doesn’t have the same level of pocket feel as Minshew, but he’s a similar athlete with limited arm talent. Just like Minshew, it has enough precision to move strings.

Aaron Boone pulls Luis Severino after seven no-hit innings; Yankees beat Rangers 3-1

Aaron Boone Pulls Luis Severino After Seven No-Hit Innings; Yankees Beat Rangers 3-1
google news

ARLINGTON — Luis Severino was not happy and neither were most of the fans at Globe Life Park Monday night.

Despite the Yankees pulling out a 3-1 win over the Rangers, nobody got what they really wanted. Aaron Judge did not hit a home run for the fourth straight game and remains tied with Roger Maris for 61, the most ever hit by an American League player. Severino was throwing a no-hitter after seven innings when Aaron Boone had to take him out.

The Yankees (98-61) have three games left for Judge, who went 1-for-4 with a strikeout, to try and best the 61-year-old record with Maris’ children and his family watching. Severino may never get another chance at throwing another no-hitter, but it was the move the Yankees’ manager had to make.

While Severino wasn’t happy, he understood.

“I was trying to fight him, but you can do nothing about it,” Severino said of Boone’s decision. “He told me ‘What you think?’ I said I’m gonna die out there. But it was not a good idea to go out there and push it to 115 pitches.”

Severino was making his third start after missing two months with a lat strain. The right-hander insisted he felt good enough to come back sooner, but the Yankees have been very careful with him due to his previous bouts with serious injuries. Boone let him just go over the 90 pitches he was scheduled for, but wasn’t going to take him to 120-130 that he would need to finish the game.

After Severino struck out Nathaniel Lowe to end the seventh inning, Boone met him at the dugout stairs. With both his hands on Severino’s shoulders, Boone continued talking and Severino kept turning his head away and would not look at his manager.

“I mean, nobody wants to be taken out or take you out in that situation. I understand, you know, I’ve been out for a couple of months. I think I throw 90-something pitches. And the start before this one was like 70-something, so I think it was a good decision,” Severino said. “I don’t want to go out there and kill myself and not be good for the postseason.”

Severino walked one and struck out seven. He was brilliant throwing 94 pitches and getting 13 swings and misses. His fastball touched 100 mph, without much effort. He went to a full count just seven times all night and Josh Smith needed a nine-pitch battle before earning a walk in the third. He was Severino’s only baserunner.

And Severino believes he would have gotten the no-hitter if could have gone on.

“One thousand percent,” he said. “To get a no-hitter is tough. You need all your guys up there. How I was feeling, how the fastball was, I feel like I would have.”

He’s allowed three runs and struck out 17 batters over 16 innings for a 1.69 ERA since returning from the injured list.

“Terrific I mean the stuff was all there. His changeup’s become such a good pitch for him. I think that’s one of the things [to come out of] the injuries he’s had over the last couple of years,” Boone said. I think one of the beauties of that is it’s made him really develop that changeup to become a really good pitch for him and it’s a pitch he has a lot of confidence in.

“Obviously his fastball and slider are calling cards for him, but that changeup becomes such a good third pitch for him,” Boone continued. “And I just thought he was he was great again tonight. It’s been really exciting to see what he’s been off the IL with three, I think, really excellent starts.”

It was his final start of the regular season and it was a good prep for the playoffs, but it was a kind of disappointing night.

“I mean it puts a little damper on the night, honestly, that it’s not a fun thing to have to do when a guy is pitching the highest league in the land and he’s out there doing his job at a really high and special level,” Boone said. “And to have to be the one that shuts that down, it’s not fun to do.”

Trump’s attorney refused to sign false statement about Mar-a-Lago Docs: Reports

Trump'S Attorney Refused To Sign False Statement About Mar-A-Lago Docs: Reports
google news

  • A lawyer has refused to back Donald Trump’s claim that he turned over all government records in January, according to reports.
  • The attorney, Alex Cannon, was involved in negotiations between Trump and the National Archives.
  • Months later, the FBI recovered caches of government documents from Mar-a-Lago during a search.

Trump attorney Alex Cannon declined to put his name to a statement by the former president saying he had returned all government records held at Mar-a-Lago, according to multiple reports.

Former President Donald Trump wanted to release a statement in January saying there were no more documents after many were turned over, The Washington Post first reported.

The report was later confirmed by The New York Times and CNN.

Cannon had acted as liaison between Trump and the National Archives as the agency repeatedly asked Trump to return documents he kept in Florida.

Trump’s push to make the statement came after Trump voluntarily returned 15 boxes of material, months before the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago and found no more documents.

But Cannon refused to take the message to the archives because he didn’t know if it was true, according to reports.

According to CNN, Cannon decided not to confirm the statement because he had handled the issue from New York and could not say whether all of the material held at Mar-a-Lago had been returned.

Shortly after, according to the report, Trump ordered her not to get involved in the case any further.

The statement claiming that all records had been returned was ultimately not released, according to reports.

In the boxes of documents Trump returned to them in January, the National Archives found highly classified information and alerted the Justice Department.

When FBI agents visited Mar-a-Lago in June, Trump aides turned over more boxes of government documents and a Trump lawyer signed a statement saying no classified documents wanted by the National Archives was still being held at Mar-a-Lago. , a claim similar to the January statement that was never sent,

But the FBI said it found numerous other classified documents when it ran its search, contradicting Trump’s earlier claims.

In court documents, the DOJ said Trump kept the material in a store and his private offices, stored haphazardly next to his personal effects.

Trump used a range of defenses in response to the raid, saying the investigation was part of a political plot to destroy him.

However, NARA and the DOJ have apparently made several attempts to resolve the issue without having to resort to obtaining a search warrant, after initially asking him to return the documents shortly after leaving office in 2021. .

Insider reached out to Cannon and Trump’s representatives for comment.

Giancarlo Stanton blasts 30th home run; Aaron Judge goes homerless again

Giancarlo Stanton Blasts 30Th Home Run; Aaron Judge Goes Homerless Again
google news

ARLINGTON — Aaron Judge watched in the background.

Giancarlo Stanton blistered his 30th home run of the season Monday night to help the Yankees to a 3-1 win over the Rangers at Globe Life Park, but Stanton was being asked about Judge’s chase for his record-breaking 62nd homer of the season.

Judge made faces and laughed as he watched and listened.

So, no, the fourth straight game without a home run as the Yankees’ regular season has just three games left does not seem to have him pressing or anxious. It did have the 35,906 at the new ballpark disappointed though. They came to see Judge make history. Instead, he went 1-for-4 with a strikeout. His batting average remained at .311, now four points lower than Minnesota’s Luis Arraez who leads the American League.

If Judge is able to surpass Arraez’s batting average, the slugger will be in position to win the Triple Crown award. It would be the first Triple Crown winner since Miguel Cabrera won in 2012.

In the top of the ninth, Judge was on deck when Marwin Gonzalez popped out to end the inning. The pop up made the crowd boo loudly. Gonzalez denied them another chance to see Judge chase history.

In the eighth, Gonzalez led off with a homer off of Jonathan Hernandez and then Judge struck out swinging on a 99-mile an hour sinker.

Giancarlo Stanton followed with his 30th home run of the season. He is the third Yankee this season to hit at least 30 homers, joining Judge and Anthony Rizzo, who has 32. They are the first trio of Yankees to hit at least 30 homers in the same season since 2005, when Jason Giambi, Alex Rodriguez and Gary Sheffield did it.

Boone said that Judge could play in both games of a split doubleheader on Tuesday and his schedule is contingent on him hitting No. 62.
