Los Angeles Rams’ Sean McVay wishes communication with Jared Goff was better ahead of trade to Detroit Lions

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Nearly nine months after the Los Angeles Rams agreed to trade Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions , and with a pending reunion at SoFi Stadium on Sunday, coach Sean McVay expressed regret about how the deal went down with his former quarterback.

"Yes, I wish there was better, clearer communication," McVay said Monday. "To say that it was perfectly handled on my end, I wouldn’t be totally accurate in that. I’ll never claim to be perfect, but I will try to learn from some things that I can do better, and I think that was one of them without a doubt."

The Rams are 5-1 and heavily favorited against the 0-6 Detroit Lions in the Week 7 matchup, but plenty of intrigue surrounds the game as McVay and Goff prepare to face off after a conflicted ending to their four-year run.

"I think he’ll be received well," McVay said about Goff’s return to L.A., where he spent five seasons after the Rams traded up 15 spots to select him first overall in 2016. "I think the L.A. fans and I think the Rams fans know what a great job he had done and how much — I think how much he meant to the Rams organization both as a football player and also the community."

After McVay was hired in 2017, he and Goff won two division titles and an NFC championship. However, following a 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, the Rams offensive production declined, and they missed the 2019 playoffs.

Following a divisional playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers last season, Goff’s status as Rams starting quarterback appeared in question when neither McVay nor general manager Les Snead committed to him. Days earlier, quarterback Matthew Stafford requested a trade from the Lions, and a chance run-in between Stafford and McVay — both were vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico — marked the end of Goff with the Rams, as he was traded along with two first-round picks and a third-rounder to the Lions in exchange for Stafford.

In the aftermath, Goff told reporters that McVay and the Rams had no contact with him from the time the season ended to when he received the phone call about the trade. Goff claimed he was blindsided by the move.

"You don’t want to catch guys off guard," McVay said. "It came together a lot faster than anybody anticipated, but yeah, of course I think that any time that tough decisions and things like that where people are affected, you always want to be as understanding, as empathetic as possible, think about it through the other person’s lens and there’s certainly things that I know I would do it a little bit differently if — when those situations arise in the future."

McVay insisted Monday that there was no tipping point in his relationship with Goff and that the chance to acquire Stafford was too great to pass.

"That was why that decision was made and that was […]


Lakers’ LeBron James adamant limiting workload won’t shield body from injury: ‘Feel worse when I play low minutes’

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — LeBron James does not buy that monitoring his minutes will have any effect on his health as the Los Angeles Lakers are about to start their new season this week.

"I don’t play the game thinking about injuries," James said Monday, ahead of L.A.’s regular-season opener against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. "And I also feel worse when I play low minutes."

In what has become a near annual ritual for the 19-year veteran, James — already sixth on the all-time minutes played list — flatly rejected the notion that limiting his playing time can shield his body from potential harm.

The fact is that even though James logged a career-low 33.4 minutes per game last season, he still suffered a severe high ankle sprain that caused him to miss 26 games and derailed a potential MVP campaign.

While James played on the right ankle in all six games of the Lakers’ first-round loss to the Phoenix Suns , he averaged just 23.3 points on 47.4% shooting, 8.0 assists and 7.2 rebounds, performing below his usual postseason standard.

James, who will turn 37 in December, said his injury dragged on well into the offseason.

"It took a while," he said. "I didn’t do much basketball stuff for probably the first two months of the summer, which is very rare for me, because my ankle wasn’t responding how I would like it to respond.

"And the best thing about the summertime was I had time. I had time to just really get ready when my ankle was ready to go. I was always training, just wasn’t on the basketball court much. Always doing other stuff, training, pushing, seeing if I could do other stuff with my ankle, and until I got to a point where I didn’t feel any sharp pains anymore, and my flexibility was back to where it was before. That’s when I knew I could get back on the floor."

Lakers coach Frank Vogel said he plans to abide by a scripted rotation that would keep James on the court in the range of 34 to 36 minutes per game.

Vogel also explained what James meant about feeling better the more minutes he plays.

"Actually in some ways if he stays over there [on the bench] too long and he gets cold, it’s worse for him to get back in there [on the court]," Vogel said. "Especially since he’s been playing this type of rotation for so long."

Beyond that, Vogel does not have a rigid plan to manage James’ workload as he embarks on what he hopes will be the 11th trip to the NBA Finals of his stellar career.

"Obviously, it’s probably don’t want to have him play 82 games," Vogel said. "But we’re not going to pre-script X amount of nights off. We’re going to take it as it comes throughout the year."For James, coming off the only first-round exit of his career, there is no hangover from last season’s disappointing title defense."It’s definitely a completely clean slate," he said. "And […]

Fox News Flash top entertainment headlines for October 18 Paulina Porizoka has returned.

The 56-year-old model recently took a brief hiatus from Instagram when she jetted off on a "top secret" adventure, but returned to the photo-sharing app on Monday with a steamy picture of herself in bed.

In the pic, Porizkova appears to be nude while under the covers, flashing her legs for her followers while wearing a smile.

She then gushed over her cozy bed in the caption. Paulina Porizkova shared a photo of herself wearing nothing but a bedsheet for her return to Instagram. "Mankind’s greatest invention. It’s not fire, it’s not the wheel, it’s not pre-sliced bread…" she wrote . "It’s Incontestably, incontrovertibly, irrefutably – A MATTRESS."

She added that she’s "convinced" that a good mattress is why humans live longer "these days." The 56-year-old model gushed over her mattress in the caption of her post. "The beauty and wit of middle age is quickly lost if deprived of a comfortable spot to rest ones bones," the model said. "Here’s to the padding which supports us while we slumber- hay or straw, down or feathers, coils or foam- whatever it is- as long as it is there! #sleep #mattress #goodtobeback #stayinginbed."


The star went on to address her recent absence from the social media platform.

"YES, I’m back and NO, I cannot even whisper of my travails," she teased. "All shall be revealed next spring." Porizkova recently took a break from Instagram while on a ‘top secret’ adventure. On Sept. 30, the star shared a photo of herself sitting on a dark-colored Vespa with her blonde hair flowing over her shoulders and revealed that she’d be taking a break from the app.

"Aaand, I’m off! Hello all my lovely IG friends, supporters, peeps and even you little trolls," she began in the caption. "I’m off on a grand adventure. Top secret of course, as those things tend to be when done for viewing at a later date. I will miss you all for the next three weeks. I’m excited, terrified, anxious and filled with gratitude for this opportunity."


She continued : "AND I NEVER RIDE MY VESPA WITHOUT A HELMET. This was just for the shot by my friend @jillgreenberg, who is a frequent backseat passenger and can testify to helmet use."

In Monday’s post, Porizkova also responded to a commenter who suggested she show "less skin."

"You’ve got brains and wit and a dazzling smile," the social media user wrote in part, to which Porizkova replied: "I’m not old. I’m happily middle aged. And showing the skin of a middle aged woman is exactly my point. Because that is what we don’t see enough of. Being my age doesn’t mean I should only get to spout cheery wisdom."I appreciate your compliment very much, but I will show lots more skin. It [sic] it offends you, you may […]

Kim Kardashian West is keeping her home in Hidden Hills, California, amid her divorce with estranged husband Kanye West .

According to legal documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Oct. 12 and obtained by PEOPLE on Monday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum, 40, has acquired the former couple’s house — and "all finishings, furniture, fixtures, appliances’ collectibles, silver and art currently located in said Residence" — for $23 million as part of their ongoing divorce proceedings.

The filing states that $20 million of the agreed-upon price is allocated for the the property itself, while $3 million is going towards its contents.

The residence was appraised by an independent appraiser in June 2020, according to the documents. Inside Kim and Kanye’s Home Kim Kardashian/Instagram

Kardashian West and West, 44, purchased the house for a reported $20 million in 2014 and worked with Belgian architect Axel Vervoordt to create a unique all-white interior for the space.

The pair — who share four children, North , 8, Saint , 5½, Chicago , 3½, and Psalm , 2 — stayed with Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner , during renovations and moved into the residence in December 2017.

Jenner tweeted in April 2018 that the house had reached a worth of $60 million.

In September, PEOPLE obtained legal documents filed by Kardashian West’s neighbor asking a judge to stop the reality star from adding various features to the property , including "underground vault, subterranean parking, an attached subterranean ‘wellness center’ and a detached guardhouse."

The filing — which was made by resident Sarah Key and named the Hidden Hills Community Association, not Kardashian West, as the respondent — requested that the Association end the SKIMS designer’s plans to "flatten two hills" and build upon "two high-pressure gas transmission lines," as she feels that the neighborhood should keep its "natural and rustic county setting" and building upon the gas lines will put "Hidden Hills community members at risk of catastrophic bodily injury and irreparable real personal property damage."


Four LHC experiments are preparing for pilot beam

Since 2019, many locations at CERN have behaved like honeycombs to complete the scheduled upgrade of the accelerator complex’s second long shutdown (LS2). This period of intense work is nearing its end with the injection of the first pilot beam into the LHC. This key milestone will be featured at a live event on CERN’s social media channel on October 20th at 4 pm (CEST).

The pilot beam is part of a test run of the LHC machine in preparation for Run 3 starting in 2022. With integrated luminosity equal to the combination of the previous two runs, more accurate measurements can be made in four LHC experiments. Still, all of them had to undergo a series of upgrades and conversions to keep up with the improved vitality of the accelerator.

A refurbished Time Projection Chamber (TPC) and an improved miniframe were added to the cave’s ALICE detector, followed by the reinstallation of the new muon forward tracker sub-detector. In May, the new internal tracking system (ITS), the largest pixel detector ever built, became the seat of the previous system between the beampipe and the TPC. The last piece of the ALICE puzzle, Fast Interaction Trigger (FIT), was installed in July.

At ATLAS, the muon spectrometer has been upgraded as part of the ongoing work. In particular, one of two new small wheels using new technologies such as the new Small Strip Thin Gap Chamber (sTGC) and Micromegas detector has been installed. The twins will be dropped into the detector cave in November.

In 2020, CMS experiments completed the installation of the first GEM (Gas Electron Multiplier Tube) station, a new sub-detector system for detecting muons in the area closest to the beampipe. This year, a new redesigned beam pipe with a new vacuum pump group was installed. During the summer, after the design was improved and the innermost layer was replaced, a pixel tracker was placed in the center of the CMS detector, followed by a beam emission, instrumentation, and brightness (BRIL) sub-detector.

For the LHCb experiment, significant metamorphosis has occurred in the last two years. New scintillation fiber particle tracking detectors (SciFi) and upgraded ring-imaging Cherenkov detectors RICH1 and RICH2 were installed this year before the beampipes were restarted. A faster VertexLocator (VELO) installation is planned for the next few months.

The first proton beam circulated through CERN’s accelerator chain last December, and the first beam was injected into the PS booster (PSB) and connected to the new Linac 4 for the first time. The proton synchrotron then accelerated the first beam in March, and the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) accelerated the first beam in May.

Equinix and PGIM Real Estate have signed a $ 575 million joint venture agreement to develop and operate two data centers for hyperscale customers in Sydney.

According to Equinix, the facilities (SY9x and SY10x) provide over 55 MW of power capacity. Both facilities are located in Rosehill, a western suburb of Sydney.

Under the agreement, PGIM Real Estate will own an 80% stake and Equinix will own the remaining 20%. Waiting for regulatory approval, the joint venture will be completed by the end of the year and the SY9x facility will open early next year.

Charles Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Equinix, said:

“These companies recognize that digital infrastructure is a source of competitive advantage and leverage Platform Equinix to connect directly to the largest cloud companies that are enhancing this infrastructure. And operate. ”

The new relationship with PGIM Real Estate follows the partnership with Equinix. Formed by GIC Last year, one in Osaka and two in Tokyo to expand hyperscale facilities in Japan.The pair also announced the expansion of their joint venture in June. Additional $ 3.9 billion investment In a hyperscale enterprise data center.

To date, Equinix has six hyperscale data centers globally. In addition to TY12x in Tokyo, there are PA8x and PA9x in Paris, LD11x and LD13x in London, and SP5x in Sao Paulo.

Equinix also has 17 data centers in Australia, which will increase to 18 when PE3 in Perth opens later this year.

Meanwhile, Australia’s top end is expected to be home to the latest DCI data center facilities after securing 2.7 hectares of land in Darwin to build a cloud-edge data center called DRW01.

DCI said it has enough space to support an IT load of up to 10 MW, subject to approval of the development application, and can grow up to 5 hectares in the future.

“Darwin is Australia’s strategic location and has already created a digital ecosystem with key elements such as renewable energy, international and Australia-wide network connectivity,” said ANZ Malcolm Roe, CEO of DCI. Mr. says.

“It is also the northern headquarters of Australia’s Defense and Coastal Border Forces, hosting important U.S. military technology and aerial assets. In the fast-growing space sector, NASA and other global players, etc. Organization has established a presence, all in addition to the existing mining, agriculture and tourism sectors. ”

“These industries need a secure ICT infrastructure, so it makes perfect sense to start with the purchase of this land and increase its footprint to include NT.”May, DCI Invested A $ 70 million What it called is South Australia’s “Most Energy-Efficient and Safe Data Center Facility.” Based in Kidman Park, Adelaide, the facility will increase DCI’s existing site capacity by 4 MW, bringing the total IT load to 5.4 MW by mid-2022.
