CONCORD, North Carolina – The NASCAR Cup Series returns to Darlington Raceway for the 73rd race of the Southern 500. Sunday’s race will mark the start of the playoffs. This final ten-race streak will ultimately crown the 2022 Cup Series champion in November.

Darlington Raceway’s flagship event has a rich history on the Cup Series calendar dating back to the event’s first run in 1950. Since then, the facility has hosted Cup Series races at least once a year with the Southern 500 traditionally held on Sunday evening of Labor Day weekend.

The track earned the nickname “Too Tough Too Tame” due to its unique composition. The racetrack is more of an egg-shaped design due to a minnow pond located on the outside of turn four. When the facility was built, the facility’s architect, Harold Brasington, promised the pond owner that the track would not disturb the minnow pond. This required workers to build much sharper three and four turns as opposed to the longer, more gradual one and two turns. The result is a very challenging circuit that forces riders to be on the edge of control during the heat of competition.

ATLANTA (AP) — A prosecutor announced a sprawling indictment Monday targeting members of what she called a violent street gang that targets the Atlanta-area homes of famous athletes, entertainers and other people flaunting expensive goods on social media.
Singer Mariah Carey, Marlo Hampton of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, Atlanta United player Brad Guzan and Calvin Ridley of the Atlanta Falcons all had their homes broken into, the indictment says. The 220-count indictment was filed on August 22 and charges 26 people, most of whom are charged with violating Georgia’s gang and racketeering laws.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said the crimes alleged in the indictment — carjacking, kidnapping, armed robbery, shootings, home invasions — were committed by members of the Drug Rich gang, which she says began to emerge in 2016 in a nearby county. In addition to celebrity targets, social media influencers have also been victims of home invasions and burglaries, Willis said.
“What they do is target people who show off their wealth on social media,” she said. “So I have a message for the public: where it’s kind of fun to put your stuff on social media and show off, unfortunately these gangs are getting more and more savvy, more sophisticated in how they target you. .”
But Willis also had a message for suspected gang members: ‘If you thought Fulton was a good county to bring your crime, to bring your violence, you’re wrong and you’re going to face consequences and today is the start of some of these consequences.
Willis said the indictment, filed last week, represented a collaboration between different law enforcement agencies working together. Gang suppression is a priority for Willis, and she said she intends to impose tough penalties on those involved in violent gang activity.
“I will not negotiate with gang members. I’m not going to allow pleas,’ she said. “We’re going to find you, we’re going to convict you, and we’re going to send you to jail for the rest of your life, and I don’t apologize for that.”

Nazem Kadri brings the Stanley Cup to his hometown mosque https://937thewave.com/nazem-kadri-brings-the-stanley-cup-to-his-hometown-mosque/ Sun, 28 Aug 2022 22:25:55 +0000 https://937thewave.com/nazem-kadri-brings-the-stanley-cup-to-his-hometown-mosque/ Former Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown mosque on Saturday.

Former Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown mosque on Saturday.

It was a day filled with pride and joy for Kadri, 31, who won the title with the Avs last season.

“That’s the goal, to inspire and motivate young people. This younger generation is looking for role models, so I’m trying my best and I’m just happy to be able to share it with everyone,” he said.

“I didn’t expect this kind of turnout. I am very grateful to all the supporters.”

Kadri started her day with the cut at the Muslim Mosque in London. He said the mosque was part of his past.

“It’s part of my roots, it’s part of who I am,” he said.

“For all these people, I know they’re on my side, (it) just goes to show that they came here for me – just so grateful for them.”

Hundreds of people, many wearing Toronto Maple Leafs Kadri jerseys and t-shirts, gathered shortly before noon at the mosque alongside Kadri’s family and loved ones. He was greeted with a loud ovation.

Munir El-Kassem, religious director of the Islamic Center of London, and Faisal Joseph, a lawyer, activist and long-time community member, addressed the crowd, sharing stories about Kadri’s character and what he represents for the community, especially Muslims. from London.

Mayor Ed Holder also addressed the crowd, declaring Kadri “the greatest Londoner”.

After Kadri paused to sign t-shirts, jerseys and photos, the celebration moved to Victoria Park, to the Kiwanis Memorial Bandshell Stage. A number of Lebanese flags – the country where Kadri’s family is from – were held high, along with a few Canadian flags.

Holder presented Kadri with the key to the city.

“There’s a reason I don’t just celebrate this with my family. I wanted to come here and share with you guys,” Kadri told the crowd. “You have been supporting me since day one and I can’t tell you enough how much that means to me.

“I hope this inspires and motivates the kids to chase your dreams, because I never thought it was possible. I had a lot of support and people made me believe. If you believe in it, you can succeed. Seeing everyone come here and support me inspires me and motivates me even more, so we’re going to try to bring this thing back (when) I go to Calgary.

Kadri’s message of hope touched the young Muslims present.

“I think it’s really an amazing experience for the Muslim community and it’s really inspiring for us,” said 15-year-old Zayan Khan. “If he can win the Stanley Cup as a Muslim, he will inspire more Muslims to achieve their dreams.”

Kadri’s visit was a welcome celebration in a community that was rocked by tragedy last year. Four members of a Muslim family were run over by a truck and killed in what police described as being motivated by anti-Muslim hatred.

“It is difficult. We are still dealing with the scars and grief that stemmed from the horrific attack that happened last year in our community,” said Hassan Mostafa, a family friend who sits on the board of directors of the Kadri foundation.

“Does celebrating this erase all of this? Absolutely not. But it’s great to have something huge like that to celebrate. Our community needs something like this, and we’re so excited and so proud.

Kadri has faced his share of racism and Islamophobia, especially in the recent playoffs.

After a collision with St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington in Game 3 of the second round that knocked Binnington out of the series with an injury, Kadri was the target of numerous racist threats and comments on social media.

Kadri’s father, Samir, said his son’s strength in fending off noise makes his accomplishment even greater.

“I could say it’s nice, but it’s not like revenge or anything like that to be honest with you, I don’t think it’s like that,” he said. “I think it’s really amazing to be able to experience that, especially when you’re going through the trials and tribulations of racing.

“I felt it myself immigrating from Lebanon in the 60s and going through the school system here and dealing with this stuff. I know my son took care of it, but I feel like there’s more of a connection, you know, where people will realize, ‘Hey, you know, maybe they don’t are really no different.’ This kind of helps in this case. We are blessed for this.

Kadri set career highs with 59 assists and 87 points in his third and final season with the Avalanche. He had seven goals and eight assists in 16 playoff games in Colorado’s title run.

Kadri signed a seven-year, $49 million contract with the Flames last week.

AM radio vs. digital audio; robot referees; and Amazon cuts the line – GeekWire https://937thewave.com/am-radio-vs-digital-audio-robot-referees-and-amazon-cuts-the-line-geekwire/ Sat, 27 Aug 2022 17:39:44 +0000 https://937thewave.com/am-radio-vs-digital-audio-robot-referees-and-amazon-cuts-the-line-geekwire/ Sitting in the first base line bleachers Thursday at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, I felt like a true fan, in my white Mariners jersey with GEEKWIRE on the back, Louisville Slugger baseball glove, Mariners spring circa 2007, white Felix Hernandez socks and noise-canceling headphones attached by cord to my portable AM-FM radio, perched between the […]]]>

Sitting in the first base line bleachers Thursday at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, I felt like a true fan, in my white Mariners jersey with GEEKWIRE on the back, Louisville Slugger baseball glove, Mariners spring circa 2007, white Felix Hernandez socks and noise-canceling headphones attached by cord to my portable AM-FM radio, perched between the seats in front of me for optimum reception.

It was then that the guy a few seats to my left turned to me and made a humiliating observation… he wondered if I was cosplaying as Steve Bartman.

You may remember Bartman as an unhappy Cubs fan with the hat and headphones in the 2003 National League Championship Series, who deflected a ball that might otherwise have been caught by the Cubs outfielder. Moises Alou. If you’ve seen the video or a photo or watched the documentary, you’ll have an idea of ​​what I looked like.

But it wasn’t cosplay. It was a technical test.

In this episode of the GeekWire Podcast, we pit old-school terrestrial radio against state-of-the-art digital audio streaming for play-by-play in the stands. Next, we discuss the pros and cons of baseball analytics and robot umpires. And finally, we get to see the highs and lows of Amazon’s latest retail tech at the tech giant’s hometown stadium.

Listen above and keep reading for more.

Radio vs smartphone: I love baseball, but I’m a big fan of multi-sensory experiences, especially seeing something live and simultaneously having someone talking in your ears, pointing out things you might otherwise miss.

In a modern baseball game, there’s so much going on in the stands, on the scoreboard, and among the people around you that it’s easy to lose track of what’s happening on the field.

Longtime baseball fans know the solution: bring a transistor radio to the game, perhaps with headphones, and follow along with the help of the play-by-play announcer and color commentator in the booth.

These days, there are several apps that provide the ability to stream game audio to your smartphone. In an ideal world, the experience of listening to the game via your phone in the stands would be perfectly synchronized.

But in reality, anyone streaming audio from the MLB app, TuneIn, or the 710 Seattle Sports radio app wouldn’t hear a home run call or any other play-by-play in their ears until at least 30 seconds after this happens. the field, given a significant delay in the audio stream.

This annoyed me for a while. My ideal scenario would be going to the game with a family member or buddy who also wanted the play-by-play to happen. Sitting next to each other, we could each have an Airpod in one ear, listening to the live stream from our phones, and chatting between locations, almost like we were sitting on the couch together, except the game would be live in real life in front of us.

But the delay makes the term “live stream” misleading and makes this scenario laughable. Testing it during Thursday’s game, my phone’s stream was usually about two casts behind the live action, at least.

I had a similar experience the last time I tried this at the ballpark a few years ago, so this time I was ready. I brought an AM FM portable digital transistor radio, bought the day before from Amazon for $21.99.

Listening to the game, literally. (Photo GeekWire/Todd Bishop)

Sure enough, a good old-fashioned terrestrial radio saved the day. There was a slight delay, but only a few seconds, between the action on the pitch and the AM broadcast reaching my ears.

It was certainly doable and an interesting example of old technology beating new.

I have a few theories as to why the difference – including network latency, additional advertising in the live stream, or possibly an MLB policy or media rights issue – but couldn’t get to response in time for this episode. I’ll see if I can find out, and please let me know your thoughts and theories at todd@geekwire.com.

In the meantime, I’ll be perfecting my Steve Bartman cosplay in the stands. Anyone who enjoys listening to play-by-play while watching a live game is fine with me.

Tech at the ballpark: In the second segment, my colleague John Cook and I discuss and debate ways to make the game faster, the potential for augmented reality in the stands, the pros and cons of replacing referees with robots, and surprising apprehensions of John about T-Mobile Park’s retractable system. roof.

Amazon One and “Just Walk Out” at play: Of course, one of the worst parts of going to any professional sports game is standing in line for a drink or snack and missing a crucial game on the field.

But it’s one of the places Amazon is offering its Just Walk Out technology, in a take-out food and beverage store called “Walk-Off Market,” which opened in T-Mobile Park earlier this year near section 126 behind plate at home.

Using my palm to enter the “Walk-Off Market” powered by Amazon. (GeekWire Photo/Taylor Soper)

You can enter by swiping a credit card or scanning your palm if you are already registered on the Amazon One system. Overhead cameras and sensors follow you around the store to see what you’re picking up and taking, and automatically top up your card.

Since I had already registered my palm and credit card with Amazon One in the Amazon Go store at the company headquarters in 2020, I was able to enter the store in T-Mobile Park simply by passing my palm above the sensor and the tipped open door. I headed straight for the large refrigerators out back…but was stopped by a worker who asked to see my ID.

I understand there are liquor laws that govern this but if I have to give Amazon my biometrics it would be great if the system could know that I am well over 21 and allow me a way or another to pass in the beer section without having to show my ID. Consider guest reviews for Day One Tower folks.

Anyway, after considering the large selection of beers, I made my selection and grabbed a Mariner Dog in the hot case. Before going out, I opened my beer can as instructed by another worker – they don’t want fans to be able to use an unopened beer can as a projectile from the stand. Even with that, and getting a patent, the whole experience lasted about two minutes. It could easily have been less than a minute if I had spent less time selecting the beer.

My colleagues Kurt Schlosser and Taylor Soper put together a full video and story at the opening of the “Walk-Off Market”.

But I have an important postscript to add about this hot dog, which Taylor and I discussed when we were back in the stands Thursday afternoon. The hot dog was lukewarm and the bun was stale. As Taylor observed, I had encountered one of the downsides of the takeout service.

OK, podcast fans, this is the ball game. Thank you for listening (and reading).

The second PGA Tour event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs is underway with players making the trip from Memphis, Tennessee, to Wilmington, Delaware for this week’s BMW Championship. Three rounds of action are now in the books, and we’re heading for an exciting end on Sunday as defending FedEx Cup champion Patrick Cantlay holds the solo lead at 12 under.

Cantlay’s lead is far from comfortable as Xander Schauffele and Scott Stallings sit within a shot of the lead at 11 under with a host of golfers also in pursuit. One golfer who won’t be chasing victory, however, is the man who entered the tournament at No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings. Will Zalatoris was forced out of the tournament in the third round after suffering a back injury, but will return next week for the Tour Championship final.

Still, we’re guaranteed to have a new top dog in the FedEx Cup standings, so you won’t want to miss any of Sunday’s action.

WARNING: This article contains details about suicide and abuse.

A South Asian radio host in Richmond, British Columbia, has been suspended after saying the husband of a woman who killed herself in New York, following what she described as years of domestic violence, should not automatically be blamed because he hasn’t been criminally charged in the tragedy.

Paul Brar, host of Sher E Punjab AM 600, spoke on air on Thursday about the death of Mandeep Kaur, who died by suicide last week after posting videos online accusing her husband of physically assaulting her for years and begged for help.

Other videos posted online appear to show Kaur, 30, being choked and choked by a man in a house, while the sound of children screaming can be heard.

Brar’s comments about the death have been condemned online and by advocates who support victims of domestic violence.

“We take this matter very seriously”

On Friday morning, the station announced that Brar had been suspended and an internal review had been launched into the matter, the results of which would be made public.

“The management and staff of Sher E Punjab do not condone or condone violence in any form and strongly oppose any form of bullying that targets women, the elderly, children and the most vulnerable of us,” the statement on the station’s website read.

“We apologize for any offenses committed and assure all of our listeners that we take this matter very seriously.”

Advocates for victims of domestic violence worry the station isn’t doing enough to respond to Brar’s comments and learn from them.

“What’s happening now, is he getting training, is all the staff getting training, is the organization sitting down and doing some soul-searching?” said Satwinder Bains, director of South Asian studies at the University of the Fraser Valley.

The station had no further comment on Saturday after being contacted by CBC News.

Nimi Chouhan, founder of the Sahara Services Society in Surrey, which supports South Asian women, children and families affected by domestic violence and abuse, said Brar’s comments make it more difficult for victims to recover. express, get help, or leave abusive marriages.

“These types of thoughts and behaviors continue in our community, but our radio hosts, our television, our dramas and our films continue to allow, perpetuate and build on all of this, which makes them victims and survivors. harder for them.”

Members of Surrey’s South Asian community plan to hold a vigil for Kaur on Sunday.
