NEW YORK – New transcripts of witness testimony and news reports revealing key details on the Ukraine scandal timeline show in vivid detail the way United States President Donald Trump and top officials maneuvered behind the scenes to block aid to Ukraine as the President sought an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden. The developments on Tuesday illuminatedthe fact that there’s still much to learn about the President’s actionsregarding Ukraine as the House races toward a potential vote on impeachment byChristmas. (CNN) The new revelations, coming at a time when half of Americans support impeaching and removing the President even though impeachment proceedings have not moved the needle of public opinion, underscored the problem for Trump and his supporters in Congress: Public hearings in the impeachment inquiry may be in the rearview mirror, but new details about his pressure campaign on Ukraine continue to trickle out.

Hull’s owners remain committed to changing the name of the club to Hull Tigers despite stiff opposition from fans’ groups, and have reiterated their threat to walk away from the club if their plans are blocked. In an open letter published in the Hull Daily Mail, vice-president Ehab Allam said the Barclays Premier League outfit needed to become financially self-sustainable as his family had “nothing left to give” in terms of future financial investment. Hull’s owners, headed by chairman Assem Allam, have ploughed £74million into the club since 2010 – an investment that almost certainly warded off a Portsmouth-style meltdown following their relegation from the Premier League in that same year. The Allams have already changed the company name to Hull City Tigers but they need the permission of the FA Council to change the club’s playing name. A formal application was submitted to the FA in December but the high-profile ‘City Till We Die’ supporters’ group is vehemently opposing the plans, and it is far from certain the governing body will sign off on the proposal. Ehab Allam’s open letter strikes a far more conciliatory tone than some of the past pronouncement of his father – who famously said the City Till We Die members could “die as soon as they want” – but nevertheless underlines the continuing determination of the family. “We feel that now is the right time to reassure our fans of the reason for the application,” the letter read. “With our family having lived in the area for 40 years, we decided to invest £24million of our own money to save the club from liquidation, and probable extinction, in 2010. Since this point we have invested a further £50m to get the club into the Premier League. “We have nothing left to give, and this is the reason why the club has to become financially self-sustainable. “For the club to become sustainable we need further investment in the form of increased sponsorships and partnerships, and by utilising the global pull of the Premier League this is possible.” Assem Allam previously said he considers a Tigers brand to be more marketable, and the word ”City” to be ”lousy” and ”common”. Press Association The letter continued: “Currently there are six teams in the Premier League with ‘City’ in their name, and, with the exception of Manchester City, all of those clubs are in a similar league position to us, and playing to similar-sized crowds. “We need something that makes us stand out from the pool of teams we find ourselves in when it comes to attracting potential international sponsors, who are simply hoping to use the Premier League, and its global audience, to advertise. “We feel the Hull Tigers brand would give us an edge in any negotiations.” And the letter signed off with another warning that the Allam family is prepared to walk away should the name change be blocked. “We hope the fans understand that we cannot own or run a club where we cannot make the right decisions,” it read. “If we were denied the chance to operate the business in the way we feel fit, and that we firmly believe is in the long-term interests of the club and the fans, then we would have no alternative but to offer the club for sale.”

Background checks could soon be required for delivery employees across our state, following the murder last summer of a 75-year-old Boca Raton woman.Republican State Representative Mike Caruso, of Delray Beach, filed a proposal (HB 1129) this week that would make it mandatory for all home delivery workers to undergo background checks including a search of a multi-state criminal database, as well as and a search of the National Sex Offender Public Website, which is maintained by the U.S. Department of Justice.The checks would be required “regardless of whether such person, employee, or agent intends to enter a consumer’s home.”Caruso’s proposal would still allow deliveries to be made before background screening is completed, although delivery workers in those cases would have to be supervised while they are with customers. They would also not be allowed to enter homes.The proposal is named after Boca Raton resident Evelyn Udell, who died last August, one day after she was beaten with a mallet, doused in a chemical, and then set on fire.The suspect, 21-year-old Jorge Dupre Lachazo, was at the victim’s house to deliver and install a new washer and dryer. He is facing charges of first-degree murder with a weapon, in addition to burglary, robbery, and first-degree arson.Udell’s family has filed a lawsuit against retailer Best Buy, J.B. Hunt Transport and XM Delivery, a Hialeah company that subcontracted the delivery job.The bill will be considered during the legislative session that begins on January 14.

New Delhi: A 0-5 whitewash against Australia. Against England in England, 0-4 with one match getting abandoned. A loss in the warm-up game to Afghanistan and a complete washout against Bangladesh. As far as ideal preparations for a major tournament go, Pakistan has not gone according to the script. To compound their woes, they face a West Indies side who are on the resurgence. In 10 World Cup encounters between the two sides, West Indies hold a massive advantage of 7-3 against Pakistan. With so much going against Pakistan, they head into this contest low on confidence and momentum.When one compares the two sides, it is the question of West Indies’ batting and Pakistan’s bowling. Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Andre Russell and Carlos Brathwaite form the core of an intimidating top order. Gayle, in particular, can take the game away from the opposition with his big hits in the powerplay while Andre Russell can decimate the bowling in the death overs. If Russell can repeat his IPL 2019 heroics in the World Cup, then the task will be uphill for Pakistan. For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights Pakistan has won only three out of 10 World Cup encounters.Pakistan last won in a World Cup against West Indies in 2011.Pakistan has lost nine out of 10 games before the World Cup. For Sarfaraz Ahmed’s side, they can draw inspiration from their past record in ICC events in England. In 2009, they had won the World T20 and in 2017, they got the better of India in the ICC Champions Trophy final. Mohammad Amir, initially left out of the preliminary squad, is back and he forms a good bowling line-up with Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Hasnain. Shadab Khan, who missed the series against England due to a virus, is back and he will be a vital role in restricting West Indies’s power-hitters.The Pakistan batting is also not that bad. Babar Azam has been the bedrock of their success while Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik in addition to Sarfraz have been consistent but they lack the power-hitting capabilities of the West Indies.Team combinationsTrent Bridge has been the venue for big scores in England this summer. A total in excess of 350 is considered about-par at this venue. Looking at the team combinations, both teams will be tempted to play some spinners and slow the scoring rate down. Pakistan’s spin department is slightly better than the West Indies but the Windies’ batting gives them the edge.West Indies (From): Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope(w), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Fabian Allen, Nicholas PooranPakistan (From): Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Asif Ali, Mohammad Hasnain, Haris SohailWho will win?It is the battle between two volatile teams. If the West Indies batting clicks, then Pakistan will be in trouble. Pakistan’s bowling will be vital in restricting West Indies. On paper, West Indies appear the winner.Weather and pitchConditions will be overcast but it will make no difference to the nature of the pitch, which will be flat. Bowlers are expected to suffer.StatisticsIn 10 World Cup encounters between the two sides since 1992, West Indies hold a 7-3 advantage.

Braun: The UW men’s basketball team had a season to remember. Marcus Landry eclipsed the 1,000-point mark, Joe Krabbenhoft set a new record for games played and the Badgers bounced back to make the NCAA Tournament after losing six consecutive Big Ten games.But none of that compares to what Trevon Hughes did in the first round of the NCAA Tournament against Florida State.After being down by 31-19 at halftime, the Badgers crawled back to force overtime against the No. 5 seed Seminoles. Hughes wasn’t himself the entire game, taking only three shots before the fateful final seconds.With seconds ticking away and the Badgers down by one, Hughes drove to the lane with every Badger fan holding their breath. Most were probably thinking, “We’ve seen this before,” and hoping somehow Hughes would find an open player.Well, that wild runner in the key soon turned into a bucket and a foul — somehow, Hughes gave Wisconsin a two-point lead, one which it wouldn’t relinquish in the final two ticks, pushing the Badgers into the second round of the NCAA Tournament. That play, reminiscent of Hughes’ wildness all year long, was the best moment of the entire year in UW athletics.So it wasn’t the Sweet Sixteen or a National Championship, but considering all the adversity the Badgers faced during the season, Hughes’ wild runner in the lane gave Wisconsin that ounce of glory it hadn’t had all year long.Solochek: As exciting as it was to watch Trevon Hughes bury the game-winning shot in the first round of the NCAA Tournament (especially because it was only being televised intermittently while I was in Mexico), there was no more exciting game than the football team’s season finale against Cal Poly last fall.Despite the positive outcome, the game wasn’t exactly that exciting for a good reason. In theory, the Badgers should have used the game as a tune-up for the bowl season, not have to sweat it out as Cal Poly’s spread offense dismantled a clueless Wisconsin defense.But, especially on senior night, there was no way Wisconsin was going to let a bunch of West Coasties get in the way of them finishing the season on a high note. As it turned out, neither was the Mustang’s kicker. I don’t know if it was the wind, or maybe there was someone moving the goalposts Christopher Lloyd-style from “Angels in the Outfield,” but those few missed extra points gave the seniors on the field and in the stands a night to remember.Sure, the football team may have had a less than memorable bowl appearance down in Orlando this winter, but it will be very hard to forget the rollercoaster ride that was, if anything, a fitting end to an up-and-down 2009 Wisconsin football season.

The 23-year-old was replaced by Jose Cisnero after Yoan Moncada’s RBI single tied it at 3.Dunning also yielded three runs on five hits and struck out seven while walking one through 4 1/3.Neither Mize nor Dunning had pitched above Double-A prior to this season.Mize, ranked as the eighth-best prospect in all of baseball by MLB Pipeline, and lefty Tarik Skubal were called up this week fill a gap in the Tigers injury-depleted rotation.Candelario lined Dunning’s first pitch of the game to the wall in right for a double, but the big righty set down the next 11 hitters, fanning six of and striking out the side in the third.Encarnacion launched Mize’s hanging curve deep to left for his third homer to lead off the second. Nomar Mazara followed with a line-shot double off the left-field wall. But Mize retired nine of the next 10 Chicago hitters.Dunning was nursing a 1-0 lead until Candelario’s towering fly narrowly cleared the wall in right center to make it 3-1.COVID CLEARWhite Sox OF Adam Engel, placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday as a precaution, started in center in place of injured rookie Luis Robert after multiple negative tests for the virus.Engel quarantined himself at home — and away from his family — after being informed he might have been in contact with a non-baseball person who has the coronavirus.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: Placed INF/OF Harold Castro on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain and selected the contract of OF Jorge Bonifacio, who started in right. … RHP Buck Farmer (groin strain) threw 15 pitches in a simulated game Wednesday at the team’s alternate site in Toledo, Ohio, and is close to returning.White Sox: Manager Rick Renteria said Robert’s sore right hand is “nothing of significant concern whatsoever,” and the outfielder could return as early as Thursday.
