Amazon to open non-Whole Foods grocery chain

Posted On May 18 2021 by

first_imgablokhin/iStock(SEATTLE) — Amazon, which bought Whole Foods in 2017 for about $13.7 billion, is planning to open a separate grocery chain, beginning in Los Angeles, according to The Wall Street Journal.Sources familiar with the project told The Journal the first new store could open at the end of 2019 and that talks are underway to add locations in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle, where the company is based. Amazon, which at the end of January reported a quarterly profit in excess of $3 billion as revenue surged 20 percent to almost $72.4 billion, also is considering acquiring regional grocery chains.The new grocery stores are expected to offer a variety of products at lower price points than many of those carried by Whole Foods, which, according to the company’s website, has 497 locations — 476 in the U.S., 14 in Canada, seven in the U.K. — and employs 89,000 people.Amazon recently abandoned plans to open a massive office in New York City that, the company said, would have created tens of thousands of jobs.Politicians and business leaders this week composed an open letter to CEO Jeff Bezos begging him to reconsider.When trading concluded on Friday, Amazon’s market cap was more than $821.1 billion.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

ASU (7-2, 2-0)defeated Washington State, 5-2, and then posted an upset over No. 18 Washington, 5-2.

Hughes: Badgers fortunate to attend Granddaddy of Them All

Posted On Sep 16 2020 by

first_imgIn a way, this will be sort of difficult to admit, but a large portion of my sports-watching career was spent struggling to consider that the idea of going to the Rose Bowl – or any BCS game that wasn’t the national championship – was as exciting of a thing as people made it out to be.And before you land on me like an anvil, note the past tense.For the longest time I couldn’t help but feel the Rose Bowl – or, again, any bowl game that was not the national championship game – was merely a consolation prize. It was like in youth soccer tournaments when everyone would be given a tournament-issued ribbon afterwards while two teams got to play for a trophy and one kept it. It was like saying, “Everybody wins! But this other team wins more! Thank you for playing!’”Those sentiments have slowly receded ever since Bret Bielema began wielding teams with flashy top-10 tags on them. As a born-and-raised Wisconsinite, I was too young to fully experience Barry Alvarez’s teams, but once Rose Bowl possibilities seemed real again with Bielema, I began to really sense a divide between Pasadena and whatever Florida and Texas had to offer (outside of the Orange Bowl).But even when I was standing in section 112 of the 97th Rose Bowl, the thought still creeped in my head – especially when Wisconsin lost – that it was just a consolation prize, anyway.I can say now, though, without reservation, that I have since exterminated that idea, and anyone else who feels what I felt should do the same.I just had to realize that college football is a game of inequality and is, therefore, not always a game about winning a championship. Due to its structure, this game is sometimes just about winning respect – or salvaging what’s left of it.Don’t take this as a validation of the nefarious BCS’s existence. It’s a crappy state of affairs for any sport to be in. It’s just that dollars and cents keep the current design in place. And it would be hard to escape the annual controversies of worthiness. Four- or eight-team playoffs would still leave teams hanging and spark whines of disrespect.And in this game where respect is real currency, playing in the Rose Bowl is the next-best thing to playing in a national championship. It is a game drooling with prestige, and if you’re a sports nerd, or nerd in general, you have to love what it offers.For starters, what a thrill it must be to play in not only college football’s oldest bowl game – the 98th edition comes this year – but to play in a stadium designated a National Historic Landmark, an ultra-rarity in the world of sports.In all of college football, there are three other stadiums with such a sticker – the Yale Bowl, Harvard Stadium and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Outside of college football, I couldn’t find any other NFL stadium that holds major sporting events.Not even Fenway Park, Wrigley Field or Lambeau Field can claim such regality as the Rose Bowl. For a stadium to remain relevant these days, it’s forced to either renovate or be wiped off the face of the earth. Soldier Field’s NFL tag was removed as a direct result of its spaceship-esque renovation, and if you thought old Yankee Stadium would have been fitting for such an honor, well, it doesn’t exist anymore.Wisconsin will play on a field that has hosted five Super Bowls and events for two summer Olympics, the 1994 FIFA World Cup (including the championship game) and the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup – also including the championship game, which the United States won.This is a field where, literally, some of the world’s best athletes have played on, and now, for the second consecutive year, the Badgers will be aligned with them.No, Wisconsin wasn’t selected by anyone to play in this game. It earned its ticket instead. Yeah, voters might not have been all too kind to the Badgers this year, but that doesn’t hide the fact that Wisconsin will still be earning some princely respect for appearing in this game against a worthy opponent in Oregon.You can’t attack the kind of history the Rose Bowl has in relation to its BCS counterparts, and they benefit more from people calling them prestigious, whereas the Rose Bowl is by its own nature.All you have to do is peer across Lake Michigan and compare what we have to what Michigan State has. The Spartans played a fine season (and admit it, you like Kirk Cousins and wouldn’t mind seeing him in the Rose Bowl), but they’ll (undeservedly) be an afterthought on Jan. 2 when they appear in the Outback Bowl.The Badgers, meanwhile, will be playing in a sumptuous scene in southern California, basking in the glow of prestige – which is really what everyone else is out to get.Elliot is a senior majoring in journalism.

USA Boxing says Queen Underwood headed to London

Posted On Aug 12 2020 by

first_imgUnderwood is a five-time national champion who won the first U.S. Olympic boxing team trials in February. But she dropped a one-point decision to Norway’s Ingrid Egner in the preliminary round of the world championships in China last month, falling just short of Olympic qualification and jeopardizing her berth in London’s 12-fighter lightweight field.Underwood finally learned Monday morning she had been chosen for an Olympic spot by AIBA, the international governing body of amateur boxing. The news reduced her to tears.“This past three weeks almost destroyed me mentally,” Underwood said. “All this pressure, everything since China, has been so hard. … I now have the chance to write my own story and my winning the gold medal is now going to be the headline. That’s what I owe to everybody and to myself. I can’t wait to get in the ring, I really can’t. It is going to be way different this time.”Underwood started boxing nine years ago after becoming fascinated by the sport’s one-on-one competition. After overcoming sexual abuse during a difficult childhood, she worked in construction while training for national championships and Pan-Am Games trips.When women’s boxing was added to the Olympic program in 2009, she focused on London—and after one misstep, she was still rewarded.Underwood’s selection means the American team will have a fighter in each of the three weight classes when women’s boxing is contested for the first time as an Olympic event. Flyweight Marlen Esparza and middleweight Claressa Shields earned Olympic spots at the world championships after winning the trials with Underwood.“We are thrilled for Queen, and believe that she absolutely deserved to be in London,” said Anthony Bartkowski, USA Boxing’s executive director. “She has been an outstanding representative for the sport since her first national championship win in 2007, and the team feels complete now that she will be joining Marlen and Claressa in London.”The 36-fighter field should be completed soon as news of AIBA’s decisions trickles out. Russia, Britain and the American team will have fighters in all three weight classes.Spencer, a 27-year-old middleweight from Windsor, Ontario, also fell short of qualification at the world championships after being touted as an Olympic medal favorite. Boxing Canada announced she had received a berth Monday.“I feel even stronger and more focused right now,” Spencer said in a statement. “The route to London was not as expected, but I feel I’ve learned a lot, and I will take those lessons with me on the final leg of the journey.”Canada’s other two Olympic hopefuls—flyweight Mandy Bujold and middleweight Sandra Bizier—weren’t selected for London.“This is excellent news for Mary,” said Mark Tewksbury, the Canadian team’s chef de mission. “I wish her good luck in training and can’t wait to see her in the ring. by Greg BeachamAfter a few weeks of uneasy waiting, Queen Underwood learned she’ll get to fight for an Olympic medal.USA Boxing said Monday that the 28-year-old lightweight from Seattle has been awarded a berth in the first Olympic women’s boxing tournament in London.Three-time world champion Mary Spencer of Canada also received an at-large berth.

Rosas’ goal in OT leads Dons, 12-11

Posted On Dec 29 2019 by

first_imgKatie Sandvig, who scored four goals, put Temple City in a position to win when she scored on a 4-meter penalty shot. She barely got the ball past Aguirre’s outstretched arm to give Temple City an 11-10 advantage with 46 seconds remaining. El Rancho took its time bringing the ball up pool before Melanie Rodriguez passed from one side to Petragon on the other side. Petragon brought the ball two strokes closer, then skipped it past Carol Li to knot the score, 11-11, with 12 seconds left. Walsh made a last-gasp effort when she slammed the ball into the net, but it was a second too late and the game went into overtime. Walsh opened the extra period with a pair of close-in backhand scoring attempts that were just wide and short, respectively, before Rosas scored what turned out to be the game winner with 22 seconds left in the period. Aguirre then came up a sparkling stop on a shot from four meters by Cardenas in the first minute of the second overtime period. Walsh had another close call when her shot to tie bounced off the outside edge of the right post with 1:10 remaining.

You’re all set! “A very physical game,” Rosas said as she attempted to catch her breath afterward. “This was a good win for us, because it has been an up-and-down season. We just got a new coach and we’re still getting adjusted to a new program.” Rosas led the Dons with five goals, including two in the opening period that helped El Rancho to a 4-2 lead. PICO RIVERA – Valentina Rosas won the race to a loose ball in front of the goal, then drove it into the net to provide El Rancho High School with a 12-11 overtime victory over visiting Temple City in their nonleague girls water polo match Tuesday afternoon. The goal came in the first of the two three-minute overtime periods, and goalkeeper Anna Aguirre made a big save in each period to preserve the win. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa AnitaEl Rancho, which improved to 7-3, is ranked No. 4, along with Crescenta Valley, in the CIF-Southern Section Division III poll.
