TORONTO – Toys “R” Us’s Canadian operations have found a safety net months after the retailer’s demise in the U.S. and overseas.Documents filed in a Richmond, Va. bankruptcy court on Monday revealed the retailer will be cancelling an auction for its 82 Canadian stores and seeking approval on Tuesday to sell them to Toronto-based Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd., which is involved in property and casualty insurance and reinsurance and investment management.The auction was triggered by a recent $300-million stalking horse offer Fairfax made that allowed others to make competing bids for the Canadian operations until Monday at 10 a.m. EST, but court filings showed no bidders other than Fairfax registered an offer.Fairfax’s successful bid signals an end to the uncertainty that has followed the beleaguered company’s Canadian arm since September, when it filed for creditor protection and its U.S. division sought bankruptcy protection. The moves, said to be the product of heavy debt and the rising popularity of e-commerce and electronic-based toys, prompted disappointment from toy lovers and investors alike.Among the most upset by the company’s demise was Isaac Larian, the executive behind California-based, Little Tikes- and L.O.L Surprise!-maker MGA Entertainment Inc.He and investors he refused to identify made a bid for the retailer’s Canadian operations, which are run separate from its U.S. dealings, outside of the now-cancelled auction in March, calling Toys “R” Us’s Canadian arm a “good business.”“They run it efficiently, and have good leadership,” he said. “At the right price, it makes economical sense.”When rumours suggesting Larian’s bid had been rejected started circulating last week, he at first said it was “disappointing,” but as more details about Fairfax’s bid emerged, he appeared to have taken on a new outlook.“As long as Toys “R” Us and jobs are saved, I’m happy. That’s what #SaveToysRUs was and is about,” Larian said in a statement.“In regards to Toys “R” Us USA, the fight to save it is just beginning.”For Larian, that fight has largely centred on a crowdfunding campaign he launched on Mar. 21 in hopes of raising $1 billion to salvage the business’ 70-year-old U.S. operations.He chipped in $200 million himself, but as of Monday at noon, had only raised an additional $62,000 from 2,043 toy lovers. The donors were being enticed to give with promises of #SaveToysRUs bumper stickers, special edition toys, invites to a reopening block party and opportunities to tour the oldest toy factory currently operating in the U.S. depending on the amount they give.Larian also vowed to give 10 per cent of proceeds from Little Tikes purchases made between the campaign’s launch and its May 28 end date to the plot.When the campaign launched, Toys “R” Us’s bankruptcy documents showed Larian was facing plenty of competition. There were 20 interested parties vying for the U.S. business, which includes 740 stores.Fairfax has not said whether it will vie for the U.S. operations, but the business, owned by billionaire Prem Watsa, has been on a recent spending spree.In February, it acquired part of infrastructure services company Carillion Canada, which filed for bankruptcy protection in January, and in November, it increased its stake in Torstar media company, which holds an investment in The Canadian Press as part of a joint agreement with a subsidiary of the Globe and Mail and the parent company of Montreal’s La Presse.Companies in this story: (TSX:FFH)
Damascus: Syria said Wednesday that Israel had attacked targets just north of the city of Aleppo and that its defences had shot down several missiles. “Army air defences repels an Israeli air aggression that targeted a number of industrial sites in Sheikh Najjar industrial zone, north-east of Aleppo, and downed a number of the hostile missiles,” the official SANA news agency said, citing an unnamed military source. A number of residents of Aleppo city told AFP that the attack led to a power cut in the whole city. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Israeli bombardment hit “ammunition stores belonging to Iranian forces and allied groups, and caused huge explosions.” If confirmed, this would be the first attack on Syrian territory since US President Donald Trump signed Monday a proclamation recognising Israel’s 1981 annexation of the strategic Golan Heights plateau which it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. Earlier this year in January, Israel targeted a number of Iranian installations in the country, hours after intercepting a rocket fired from Syrian territory. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 21 people, mostly Iranians, were killed in those attacks. Israel insists that it has the right to continue to target positions in Syria held by Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah. In May 2018, Israeli strikes killed 27 pro-regime fighters including 11 Iranians in strikes on dozens of targets inside Syria.
Panaji: A Goa court on Wednesday issued summons against Union minister and North Goa MP Shripad Naik directing him to depose as a witnesses in a cheating case registered against his former staffer last year. Panaji Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Vijayalaxmi Shivolkar directed Naik to appear in person by June 3. The JMFC also asked Naik to testify and bring material evidence, if any, on what he knows about the case. The former staffer in question, Vinod Desai, was booked last year under section 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for allegedly demanding Rs six lakh from one Mervin Fernandes under the pretext of providing him a job in the Goa government. Desai had allegedly taken an advance payment of Rs two lakh from Fernandes. As Desai failed to keep his promise, Fernandes demanded refund of his money. However, the cheque of Rs one lakh issued by Desai bounced, following which Fernandes approached Old Goa police on September 20, 2018.
The Golden State Warriors didn’t lose very often this year, but when they did, the Dubs tended to bounce back with a vengeance. Following the 15 losses for which we know the next game’s outcome1So, not counting the Warriors’ loss in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. (including the playoffs), Golden State went 14-1, which was not only the NBA’s best record coming off a defeat, but also 24 points of winning percentage better than a statistical power-rating such as our Elo method would predict. (That was also tops in the NBA.) As terrifying as the Warriors are in general, they’re ever so much scarier still after a loss. That’s the version of Golden State the Cavaliers will tangle with Thursday night in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. As usual, LeBron James will have his work cut out for him.The good news for Cleveland: The game will be played at Quicken Loans Arena. Putting aside everything else, that means the Cavs should probably be favored to force Game 7. The bad news: Golden State’s not-so-secret weapon, Draymond Green, is coming back from his suspension.And less obvious on Cleveland’s bad-news front — but perhaps equally important — is how much the Cavs relied on an uncharacteristically amazing Kyrie Irving performance in Game 5. According to Game Score (John Hollinger’s rough estimate of a player’s performance in a given outing), Irving’s 33.2 mark easily represented his best game of the 2015-16 season, and was more than double his usual per-game output.In his career, whenever Irving has notched a Game Score of at least 25 — the benchmark of a very good outing — his output dipped to a Game Score of 18.9 in the very next game on average. And Irving’s Game 5 performance wasn’t just very good — it was transcendent. In fact, it was so far outside his usual production that he isn’t likely to approach it again: VIDEO: LeBron’s Game 5 performance was historically greatOur sports podcast Hot Takedown talks about the Cavs’ comeback chances. Irving is, by nature, on the streaky side as far as NBA players go — the standard deviation of his Game Scores was 19th largest among 126 qualified players this season.2We’re defining those as players who played at least 50 games and averaged a Game Score of at least 8.0 per game. (Stephen Curry, believe it or not, is the most “streaky” player, in terms of standard deviation in his Game Score — though his variance runs from “extremely great” to “closer to league average.” On the other end, Jonas Valanciunas and DeAndre Jordan ranked as the most “consistent” players among those performing at league-average or better.) So although Irving is capable of putting up huge numbers, as in Game 5, it also takes something fluky, like a hot night of unsustainable shooting, to pull it off.Speaking of which, Irving’s Game 5 featured the second-best “shot-making” performance of the entire playoffs,3Minimum 20 field goal attempts. with Kyrie hitting for an effective field goal percentage (eFG%) 34.1 points higher than we’d expect based on the location and defensive pressure applied to his shots. During the regular season, Irving outshot expectations by only 1.9 points of eFG%, and shot-making tends to regress heavily to the mean from game to game.To stave off elimination, the Cavs might need Irving to buck those odds. That 33.2 Game Score represented the best performance by a LeBron teammate all season; Irving also owns five more of the top 10, and 12 more of the top 25. LeBron chronically seems in need of strong supporting performances from his teammates, and if Irving doesn’t supply that again, it’s not clear who will — particularly with Kevin Love limited (to say the least) after suffering a concussion earlier in the finals.In other words, a not-insignificant portion of the Cavs’ Game 6 hopes are resting on a repeat performance from a streaky player. When it comes to Cleveland sports, crazier things have happened. Perhaps this time, the Cavs will come out ahead in the exchange.
The OSU football team returned to the practice field on March 10 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, less than 2 months after the Buckeyes beat Oregon in the 1st-ever College Football Playoff National Championship. Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorAfter putting the pedal to the metal to complete “The Chase,” the Ohio State football team moved straight into “The Grind.”But as the Buckeyes completed practice Tuesday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center — just their third since winning the National Championship — coach Urban Meyer said it might be time to pump the breaks. Meyer said OSU is monitoring the reps of certain players, leading to less cohesiveness on the practice field.“That’s why sometimes it looks really bad, and today it was not a pleasant one,” Meyer said Tuesday. “We’re not gonna blame players or coaches yet. That’s coming, though, if you don’t get better.”The Buckeyes played 15 games — winning all but one — in 2014-15, marking the first time a collegiate team had played more than 14 times in a season. But game reps aside, OSU is monitoring “competitive reps” players get in practice, Meyer said.The fourth-year OSU coach said senior offensive lineman Taylor Decker has had more than 2,000 live reps in his career, and named off redshirt-junior offensive lineman Pat Elflein, redshirt-senior tight end Nick Vannett, senior linebacker Joshua Perry, redshirt-junior safety Tyvis Powell and junior defensive lineman Joey Bosa as other high-rep players.While Meyer didn’t name any of those players among the injured Buckeyes, OSU has learned that at least four players would no longer be able to play football because of past injuries since the beginning of 2015. With linebackers Devan Bogard and Trey Johnson, safety Ron Tanner and cornerback Armani Reeves done for good, the Buckeyes are being careful with other injured players in practice.Redshirt-senior quarterback Braxton Miller has been pulled back in practice, Meyer said, but only for precautionary reasons.Meyer added that the trainers are being very cautious with junior running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has a bone graft in his wrist. Along with Miller and Elliott, Meyer said senior offensive lineman Jacoby Boren and junior H-back Dontre Wilson are both still working back from injuries.“Jacoby’s had several things, but I don’t see any Band-Aids on him any more, so he’s getting close,” Meyer said. “Dontre has a broken foot, pin’s out; I saw him running in the water the other day.”But among the players being held back, Meyer said he’s been surprised to see the progress of yet another injured quarterback — redshirt-sophomore J.T. Barrett.“J.T. is doing good, he’s doing more,” Meyer said. “I thought he would be much more limited but he’s getting every mini field and 7-on-7 rep.”As more experienced players are given a bit of a break and younger players earn more reps, Meyer said he wasn’t pleased with Tuesday’s showing. With that in mind, the Buckeyes have some time to prepare before taking the field against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va.“It wasn’t a great day,” Meyer said. “But it’s spring practice.”
Sean Dyche insisted that he doesn’t want to spend a lot in the upcoming summer transfer window despite his side have been doing really well and is likely to make it to the Europa League for the next season.The talented British coach claimed that he has to think about future – not just about the next six months, but about the next couple of years and he can’t spend all the money that he will be given just for a couple of high-profile players.Dyche spoke about his plans for the transfer window as he said, according to Independent:It’s hard for us to buy ‘the one’ who can walk straight into our team.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“We have to look at a high level of development player – not necessarily someone for £100,000 to turn into a world beater – but the kind of market for us is a few million quid.”“We can’t jump to £25million for people, five times over, we’ve got to look not just for the next six months but the six months after that, 18 months, 24 months, and that is tough.”“But you have to keep looking and future proofing, getting the players in we think we can mould for the future.”
AS Roma owner James Pallotta has been banned by UEFA for criticizing referee, according to Sky Sports.Roma owner has been suspended for three months by the European Football governing body for criticism of the referee after his team’s second-leg semi-final Champions League tie against Liverpool last season.Pallotta publicly criticized the central officials of the game calling his officiating embarrassing while also saying the ref cost Roma an appearance in the final.Roma defeated Liverpool 4-2 that night at the Stadio Olimpico but lost the tie 7-6 on aggregate as Liverpool qualified for the final in Kiev.The Roma supremo also claimed that the use of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in that game would have overturned a number of decisions made in favor of Liverpool.Karsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R.

Simon Mignolet believes Liverpool would learn from their late title twist in 2014 as they close in on their first Premier League crown.Only three players Mignolet, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge who were all instrumental in that campaign are in the current team.And five years on they are on the cusp of something special with a four-point lead ahead of Man City.“So much has changed over the past five years here,” he told the ECHO.“It’s only Hendo, Studge and me still here from the last time we really fought for the title.“Back then a lot of it was about Luis Suarez and Studge, whereas now the goals are shared about more. We had a really good team in 2013/14 but the moment we got one or two injuries it became difficult.“We’ve got a broad squad now which means we can cope with injuries. That’s probably the biggest difference with last time.“If a game is deadlocked there is always someone ready on the bench who is capable of opening a game up. In that sense, we’re in a much better position than we were then.23 – Mohamed Salah & Roberto Firmino have combined to set up 23 goalscoring chances for one another in the Premier League this season; more than any other pair.

Ever since he’s come in he’s made a huge difference.“It’s not only his playing ability but the character and the leadership he sends out from the back. It’s especially important when you play teams like Brighton and Crystal Palace recently.“It’s the pressure he eases with his clearing headers. He always makes it look so easy. Something that’s very difficult for anyone else, just looks like a walk in the park for Virgil. He’s made us a lot more solid than before.”
