It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”“We’re excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” added Meher Tatna, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which has held the Golden Globes each year since 1944. “Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage.”The former “Grey’s Anatomy” star — who won a 2006 Golden Globe for her work in the hit medical drama — missed out on making history at the Emmys earlier this year when she failed to win an Outstanding Actress award for her work in critically acclaimed thriller “Killing Eve”, which would have made her the first woman of Asian descent to win an Emmy in the lead actress category.Oh and Samberg have some history together; the pair co-presented an award at this year’s Emmys, and their award-show chemistry clearly caught the attention of the HFPA.Paul Drinkwater/NBCCheck out the Twitter reaction to the Globes’ announcement:Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will co-host the 2019 Golden GlobesThe duo will serve as hosts of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, which will air on Sunday, January 6.Sandra Oh & Andy Samberg are hosting The #GoldenGlobes January 6 on NBC!

Alex Benay exits as Canadas CIO joins AI startup from Ottawa

Canada’s chief information officer is leaving his post to join a startup in Ottawa. Alex Benay, who for two-and-a-half years was tasked with modernizing the government’s digital infrastructure, made it official on Twitter this morning with a statement that indicated he’s taking on “a new challenge”. Benay is joining MindBridge AI as the firm’s chief client officer and will be responsible for the company’s global growth strategy. MindBridge uses artificial intelligence to help auditors and financial regulators put the troves of collected data to better use and stomp out fraud. In June the company said it closed its Series B round of financing and investment through the Government of Canada’s Strategic Innovation Fund for a combined total of $29.6 million. The investments brought the total fundraising to date to over $45 million. The Globe and Mail reported that $14.5 million of that $29.6 million was government funded. Made the decision to leave the public service today. Thank you to all those who have supported me over the years.

All public office holders are required to follow their obligations regarding future employment under the Conflict of Interest Act. The act specifically says all outside employment offers must be disclosed to the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner within seven days of receiving them. “Alex has consulted the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner on the matter of his employment with MindBridge, and the constraints that he will be required to observe,” indicated Bianca Healy, chief communications officer for the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, in an email to IT World Canada. “Alex has recused himself from all major files and decisions and has not, since being approached, been present at TB, or otherwise advised ministers on TB business.” Farees Nathoo, a spokesperson for the treasury board, added Benay helped the board instill a digital-first mindset. “Minister Murray thanks Mr. Benay for his service at the Treasury Board Secretariat, where he worked with dedication to place digital at the heart of our efforts to better serve Canadians. The Minister is confident that the team will continue this important work,” Nathoo said in a separate emailed statement.   This section is powered by IT World Canada.

Serial pursesnatcher sought by Peel police

Peel police are looking for a man suspected of snatching purses from four women on separate occasions last month. Police say between Feb. 13 and Feb. 26, four women had their purses stolen by a man on a bicycle in Mississauga. A 42-year-old woman was injured during one robbery after she was dragged about 20 feet before she let go of her purse.Police believe the same man is responsible for all four incidents. He is described as white, 20 to 25 years old, was wearing a silver jacket and riding a black and red bicycle.Police are reminding residents to be aware of their surroundings, keep bags and purses close to you, and to be aware of suspicious people in their area. If anyone tries to grab your purse, police recommend you let go of your purse to avoid injuries. Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to contact Peel police. read more

Iraqi personnel decline UN request for private interviews

On Friday, the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) requested “further interviews with Iraqi personnel in private” but “two individuals concerned did not agree to it without the presence of a witness,” said Hiro Ueki. As a result, those interviews were not held.”UNMOVIC will continue to seek interviews in private, as allowed in Security Council resolution 1441,” Mr. Ueki stressed, referring to the landmark text which paved the way for resumed inspections following a four-year suspension.According to the spokesman, officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) – the UN watchdog probing Baghdad’s nuclear weapons programme – flew by helicopter with representatives of the Iraqi National Monitoring Directorate to a facility formerly known as Al Jesira to conduct an interview in private. “The individual concerned declined the request,” Mr. Ueki said, adding that the interview was then conducted in the presence of a representative of the Directorate.Also today, two incidents took place at and around the Canal Hotel, where the UN is based. In the first, an Iraqi man holding an iron rod approached the main gate of the UN premises before being subdued and apprehended by UN security personnel, who found three knives on his body and then handed him over to the Iraqi authorities. In the second incident, an Iraqi man stopped a convoy of inspectors as it headed onto Canal Road. “When the driver of the lead UN vehicle got out of the car to talk to the man, the man jumped into the driver’s seat,” Mr. Ueki said. “The man was subsequently removed from the vehicle and handed over to Iraqi authorities for questioning.”Meanwhile, inspectors continued their activities, including visits to the Al Rasheed State Company at Al Mamoun, the Sumaykah surface-to-surface missile support facility, the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Education at Quadisiyah University, the Al Qa Qaa complex, the North Oil Company and the Colleges of Education and Engineering at Tikrit University.On Friday, an UNMOVIC chemical team returned to the Al Qa Qaa complex for the seventh day to inspect the Research and Development Centre and a waste treatment facility. Afterwards, the team went to the Mamoun Factory, which belongs to the Al Rasheed Company and is located next to the Al Qa Qaa complex. “The factory produces munitions and chemical materials for munitions,” Mr. Ueki said. The team then proceeded to the Al Basil Centre – which is primarily a research centre for chemical products – in the Jadriyah complex in Baghdad to assess its current activities. read more

9 days after baby arrives Mom gets her PhD

Other award recipients included:Governor General’s Silver Medals: Stacey Van Herk (Mathematics and Computer Science) and Cameron Giles (Medical Sciences).Board of Trustees Spirit of Brock Medals: Dinara Salaeva (Applied Health Sciences); Huzaifa Faizan (Accounting); Lee Belding (Chemistry); Gianluca Agostinelli (Social and Cultural Contexts of Education); Stephanie Culp (Classics); Gabriela Ruiz Rodriguez (Aboriginal Adult Education); Malvina Skorska (Psychology).Applied Health Sciences Research Excellence Award: Kinesiology professor Sandra Peters.Distinguished Research and Creative Activity Award: Economics professor Robert Dimand.Both Fall Convocation ceremonies can be watched in full belowMorning Ceremony:Afternoon Ceremony: There’s a tradition in university convocation ceremonies where PhD graduates immediately get to sit on the stage with their colleagues after they’re conferred.It was a tradition Izabella Ludwa got to enjoy for about five minutes Saturday morning before her responsibilities as a mother trumped her reward for holding a doctorate.Izabella Ludwa with her daughters Elowen, left, and Willow, right.Nine days before she walked across the convocation stage at Brock University to receive her Doctor of Philosophy, Ludwa gave birth to her second daughter.“I got teary eyed when I walked out. Just being here is amazing,” Ludwa said as she sat with her two children at a table overlooking Ian Beddis Gymnasium, where the morning convocation ceremony was still going on.The Toronto native, who now lives in St. Catharines with her husband Tito and daughters Willow, three, and the newborn Elowen, has spent more than a decade as a student. She took her undergrad at the University of Toronto and then moved to Brock for her masters in kinesiology and finally her PhD.But getting to Saturday’s ceremony – Brock’s 100th Convocation – has been far from an easy journey for the Ludwa family.“It was hard. My husband was a huge help and you try to figure out what works. There are moments where it doesn’t work and things go by the wayside in terms of trying to finish school,” she said.Six months after her first child was born, she considered leaving school.“There was a point where I thought I should just quit. It was too much,” she said. “We don’t have family here so it’s not like I can go drop someone off. And being a student, financially it’s difficult. Day care is expensive.”Ludwa credits her supervisor, kinesiology professor Nota Klentrou with pushing her on. Ludwa’s research focused on investigating the bone-muscle interaction during growth and development in children and she’s hoping to continue that research if she’s able to get some post-doc funding.Ludwa was one of 955 students to graduate during two convocation ceremonies at Brock Saturday.The Fall Convocation event marked the first for Interim President Tom Traves, who started at Brock two weeks ago, as well as for Registrar Geraldine Jones, who took over the role from the retired Barb Davis over the summer.During the morning ceremony, Applied Health Sciences Research Excellence Award recipient professor David Gabriel gave the convocation address and reminded the graduates about the importance of friendship.“Convocation is for family who have sacrificed so much for you, but today I want to acknowledge the friends,” he said. “These are the people who have been with you through the trials and tribulations when you tell your family ‘everything is OK,’ and then you go home and spend time with your friends who help you through day-to-day life.“Never forget to take an opportunity to tell your friends and all those who are there for you that you care about them,” he said.The afternoon address was delivered by Faculty of Education professor Nicola Simmons, recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award, who said graduates need to remain creative, patient and inquisitive.“My wish for you is that you use your degree wisely; That you continue to ask good questions; That you do today what will be good for tomorrow; That you creatively imagine the future; That you not be rushed and that your life indeed will be rich and full,” she said. read more

Womens basketball out of a slump and on a roll

After a midseason lull that saw the Ohio State women’s basketball team lose nine of 15 games, Jim Foster’s team is back on track. After four consecutive wins, the Buckeyes are once again in the race for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. Tonight, OSU (17-9, 8-6 Big Ten) takes on first-place Michigan State (24-3, 12-2 Big Ten) in a game in which the Spartans will seek revenge for the 14-point loss they suffered Jan. 16 in Columbus. After clinching at least a share of the regular season Big Ten title, MSU can secure the title outright with a win. Foster said his team was lacking defensive intensity and attention to detail during a three-game skid from Jan. 27 to Feb. 6. He questioned his team’s mental toughness, but said it’s better now. “If you’re going to be in the NCAA Tournament,” Foster said Wednesday, “you couldn’t ask for a better situation than our schedule was down the stretch for this particular group of players that had that goal in mind.” That stretch included two wins against Purdue (18-10, 8-7 Big Ten) and road wins against Minnesota (11-16, 3-11 Big Ten) and No. 23 Penn State (21-7, 10-4 Big Ten). Foster said his team has been playing in tournament mode for a few weeks now. “These are the teams that are going to be in the tournament,” junior point guard Samantha Prahalis said, noting the importance of finishing the regular season strong. “We got to keep winning to give us a better seed. It’s just important that we win.” Tied for fifth place in conference standings, the Buckeyes look to crack the top five and earn a bye in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. The winner of the conference tournament gets an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. “You just want to get better,” Foster said. “They’ve won before — they understand winning and the detail things that are necessary.” OSU is tied with Iowa (20-7, 8-6 Big Ten) in the standings. The two split their series, each winning its respective home games against the other. Senior forward Sarah Schulze made her way back to action in the team’s buzzer-beating 76-74 win at Purdue on Sunday after suffering a knee sprain that had kept her out of action since the Jan. 16 win against MSU. Her return has inspired her teammates. “That just shows toughness,” sophomore guard Tayler Hill said. “When we’ve seen her out there, if she can do it, we know that we can play tough too.” The Buckeyes will have to contend with Spartans leading scorer Kalisha Keane. The forward is averaging 16.3 points while shooting nearly 45 percent from beyond the 3-point line. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Breslin Center. read more

Les traces de pas dun reptile vieilles de 280 millions dannées

first_imgLes traces de pas d’un reptile vieilles de 280 millions d’annéesSelon un récent communiqué du Muséum national d’histoire naturelle et du CNRS, des paléontologues français ont découvert en Turquie les empreintes de pas fossiles d’un petit reptile vivant il y a 280 millions d’années, dont on ignorait la présence dans cette région.À la recherche de fossiles de dinosaures dans la région de Cakras, près de la Mer Noire, en Turquie, le paléontologue Jean-Sébastien Steyer et son collègue franco-turc Sevket Sen sont tombés par hasard sur… un reptile aux allures de lézard. Ou plutôt sur ses empreintes de pas fossilisées, de quelques centimètres seulement. Une surprenante découverte qui s’est faite dans le cadre d’une expédition organisée pour le compte commun du Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (MNHN), du CNRS et de l’Université Pierre et Marie Curie. À lire aussiPourquoi les dragons de Komodo n’ont jamais conquis le monde”Nous étions partis pour trouver des dinosaures dans l’arrière-pays. Bredouilles, nous nous sommes alors tournés vers les falaises du bord de mer. Nous avons bien fait”, explique le paléontologue Jean-Sébastien Steyer dans un communiqué. C’est alors en retournant un bloc éboulé que Sevket Sen a aperçu de curieuses traces de quelques centimètres seulement. Traces qui ont ensuite été comparées avec d’autres empreintes connues aux Etats-Unis, en France et au Maroc, permettant ainsi d’identifier le spécimen de la famille des Captorhinidae vivant il y a 280 millions d’années, soit 60 millions d’années avant l’apparition des dinosaures.Or, si les chercheurs connaissaient déjà ce reptile de la taille d’un petit varan, ils n’avaient jamais observé des preuves de sa présence dans ces régions. “La présence de ces traces, uniques dans cette région du monde, est très importante : elles font le lien entre les reptiles de l’ouest et ceux de l’est de la Pangée [le supercontinent unique de l’époque]”, a souligné Jean-Sébastien Steyer. Quant aux fossiles de plantes découverts à proximité des empreintes, “ils suggèrent un climat chaud et humide qui a peut-être favorisé la dispersion de ces reptiles”, a t-il ajouté, cité par l’AFP.

TShirt Tuesday Best SpiderMan Shirts

first_img Back in the days of geek prehistory, a T-shirt was a signal to the world around you that you cared about your nerdy pursuits enough to fly them like a flag. Companies like Graphitti Designs contracted with movie studios and comics publishers to create shirts with our favorite characters and sold them up on the walls of comic book stores and through mail order.The computer revolution has enabled the T-shirt world to become something totally new – affordable production and distribution means that shirts can be printed in small quantities and sold anywhere in the world. Starting with Threadless, dozens of companies popped up letting artists and designers show their stuff. It’s a better time than ever to be a geek fashionista, and if you’re looking to expand your wardrobe we’re going to help you out every week… on T-Shirt Tuesday.This week: eleven sweet-ass shirts inspired by the wall-crawling hero who recently underwent a cinematic reboot.The Spider-ManThe thing with Spider-Man is that his costume manages to be simultaneously complicated and iconic. The web pattern on the suit is a pain in the ass to draw, but it can inspire artists to really make some cool stuff. Case in point: this unusual illustration by JoshBelden, which transforms Peter Parker into an actual eight-limbed life form. It’s both creepy and deliciously drawn, a fine tribute to a character who has received as much hassle as he has heroism.$20, buy it here.Midtown HighPeter Parker rocks a bunch of super geeky T-shirts in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but the one we craved was the official Midtown School of Science & Technology shirt. The high school that Spidey attends is just as important in the flick as all of the spandex action, and the logo for the fictional institution, ably reproduced by Vicener, pays tribute to the Atomic Age origins of Marvel in a stylish way. Now all you need is a student ID card.$20, buy it here.Feudal WebslingerRecasting iconic heroes like Spider-Man in different contexts is a fun thing for artists, and we have to give props to Figzy for their slick take on a Japanese feudal samurai Peter Parker locked in combat with an equally historical Doctor Octopus. The linework, color choices, and composition in this one are all totally on point, making for a classy superhero shirt that you could wear pretty much anywhere.$20, buy it here.E. Brock’s ElixirThe black costume era of Spider-Man is a favorite for many fans. After the events of Secret Wars saddled Peter Parker with a slick looking black & white costume, he discovered that it was actually a parasitic alien entity that bonded with him. Parker eventually managed to shake it off, but the symbiote found a new host in Eddie Brock, who became the rampaging Venom. This charming shirt from OrderedChaos takes that black goo and recasts it as an old-timey health tonic. Special props to the bubbles in the bottle mimicking Venom’s face – a nice subtle touch.$20, buy it here.Ooh YeahOne of the most memorable moments in the first Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movie is when he climbs in the ring with professional wrestler Bonesaw McGraw to make some extra cash and test his new abilities. Bonesaw was played by the in-ring legend “Macho Man” Randy Savage, and this T-shirt from westonoconnor merges a classic John Romita Spidey drawing with Savage’s iconic 80s shirt design that featured his wrap-around shades to create something truly wonderful. Snap into a radioactive Slim Jim!$20, buy it here.Venom Wants To PlayWe’re trying to keep this list Peter Parker-centric, but this Venom shirt by MiraDesigns is just so striking that it needed to find a place on the list. It takes the blobby, amorphous nature of the symbiote suit and uses it as a graphic element to form words and the shapes of Venom’s face. It’s a real eye-catcher that doesn’t look like any T-shirt we’ve ever seen.$20, buy it here.Strange Impulses From BelowTaking old comic books out of context for comedy value is a time-honored tradition in geek circles, and this T-shirt design from ronwlim does exactly that with a Steve Ditko panel featuring the tingling of the Spider Sense. We’ve always wondered exactly what Peter Parker’s danger perception actually feels like – from the art, it’s something like when your foot’s asleep, except on your head. That doesn’t sound too comfortable, but maybe he gets used to it.$20, buy it here.Where The Amazing Things AreSpider-Man’s rogues’ gallery is one of the most well-developed in comics, springing primarily from the fertile minds of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Artist TanoshiBoy re-interprets some of Peter Parker’s most deadly foes – Venom, the Lizard, the Rhino, Doctor Octopus and the Green Goblin – in the style of Maurice Sendak’s classic Where The Wild Things Are. It’s a remarkable feat of visual invention that makes for a cute and charming T-shirt.$20, buy it here.The Mary JanesThe alternate universe of Spider-Gwen has proven surprisingly popular, which is good because it’s a lot of fun. Gwen Stacy got the radioactive spider bite, while Peter Parker became the Lizard and lots of other things changed as a result. When she’s not fighting crime in one of modern superhero comics’ best costumes as Spider-Gwen, Stacy plays drums in a band called the Mary Janes; their logo cribbed from Queens’ favorite sons the Ramones. Artist Ziem83 lets you represent the band in style.$20, buy it here.Michigan J. VenomI don’t know why this is cracking me up so much, but it is. This design from hellboy (presumably not the actual Hellboy) takes the Venom symbiote and attaches it to the Warner Brothers dancing and singing amphibian Michigan J. Frog. Why exactly this would be a thing that happens (especially since Warner Brothers owns DC, not Marvel) is anybody’s guess, but the image is just so ridiculous that it kills me.$20, buy it here.Italian SpidermanForeign knock-offs of American heroes are always funny, but none is quite as weird as Italian Spiderman, the Australian parody of same that was released in 2007. This shirt by faceofpuma depicts the movie’s star Franco Franchetti in full spider-duds cradling his trademark pump-action shotgun and getting ready to spring into action with his razor-sharp mustache and massive physical strength. It was made by the same minds behind the genius Danger 5, which you should watch immediately.$20, buy it here.

Police Arrest 15Yearold Boy Suspected of Killing Father in Scripps Ranch

Anthony Dupree said.A preliminary investigation concluded the father and son lived together at the condo, but detectives do not know what led to the shooting at the complex just north of the Scripps Ranch area and east of Interstate 15.The first officers to arrive at the scene found the 46-year-old victim lying on a bedroom floor suffering from at least one gunshot wound to his upper body, Dupree said. “Officers provided immediate medical aid to the victim, until relived by paramedics,” the lieutenant said. “Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.” The suspect, whose name was not released, had fled from the condo on foot before police arrived, but he was arrested about 1 a.m. about two miles from his family’s dwelling when someone called 911 after spotting the teen on Scripps Poway Parkway near the I-15, Dupree said. He was allegedly arrestedwith a handgun in his waistband and dozens of rounds of ammunition in his backpack.Footage from several news cameras at the scene showed officers taping brown paper bags around the suspect’s hands, presumably to preserve possible gunshot residue evidence. Cameras also captured officers collecting evidence on the hood of a patrol vehicle that included a black handgun, at least two ammunition clips and two boxes of bullets.After the suspect was booked into jail, he was taken to a hospital out of precaution after complaining of injuries, Dupree told City News Service. The lieutenant did not know what type of injuries the teen said he had.Contrary to some news reports, Dupree told City News Service that investigators have no evidence suggesting the teen was planning any other violence. “There was some speculation that the suspect was planning on shooting up a school or something,” Dupree said. “That obviously caused some trepidation for some people. We have absolutely no evidence that was the case.”Anyone with information about the slaying was urged to call the San Diego Police Department’s homicide unit at (619) 531-2293 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers’ anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.

Googles Project Fi adds support for the Moto G6 LGs G7

first_imgProject Fi, Google’s wireless service, is getting support for a number of new phones today. Until now, if you wanted to switch to Fi, the only officially supported phones were Google’s own Pixel and Pixel 2 phones, the Nexus 5X and 6P, as well as the Moto X4 and its Android One variant. Today, Google is adding to this list the Moto G6, as well as LG’s G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ phones.Since Google’s network is a bit different from its competitors, thanks to Fi’s ability to switch between the networks of T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular to provide users access to the strongest signal in a given area, the company has always taken a very strict approach as to which phones it officially supported.If you want to make the switch to Fi, which also recently introduced its own take on its competitors’ flat-rate plans, then the 32GB version of the 5.7-inch Moto G6 is now available for $199 (discounted from $249). The two LG phones will be coming to Fi next month for their standard retail prices of $899 for the V35 and $749 for the G7. While Google isn’t offering any major outright discount for the LG phones, those who pre-order one will get a $50 Fi credit.It’s worth noting that the V35, LG’s new six-inch flagship phone, only launched today and is essentially a G7 with more RAM, a different display and larger battery. The phone was originally rumored to be an AT&T exclusive, but I guess we can put that idea to rest now.Both the G7 and Moto G6 have generally received favorable reviews. Google also currently offers the Moto X4 for a heavily discounted $249, but that still makes the G6 the most affordable option for Fi. This may create a bit of confusion for potential users, though, as those are quite similar and it’s hard to figure out which one to pick (just like choosing between the G7 and V35). At the same time, though, it’s nice to see Google add more options for its Project Fi customers.last_img read more

Don Shooter shows health improvement TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards paramilitary units plan to teach drone-hunting to school students, an Iranian newspaper reported Monday.The report by pro-reform Etemad daily quoted Gen. Ali Fazli, acting commander of the Guard’s Basij militia, as saying the new program will be taught as part of a “Defensive Readiness” lesson in high schools from late September.He did not elaborate but the plan suggests students would be taught how to track and bring down drone aircraft by hacking their computer systems.

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories The man can coach, and I think he’ll remind Cardinals fans of that fact soon enough. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   But mostly I wish him well because I hope it will end, for the rest of eternity, this inane debate that Cardinals fans love to have. The Super Bowl year, how much of it was Whiz and how much of it was Kurt Warner? Toward the end of his time here, the chorus of voices claiming he deserved no credit — that he was just here when the wheel went round — were loud and persistent. I wanted to see a new coach like every other barstool expert. The lines between coach and personnel guy had become so blurred change was necessary. But to suggest he had nothing, or very little, to do with a Super Bowl appearance was always, well, silly. The attempt to assign some kind of a ratio of credit (70:30 Warner, for example) was the hamster wheel of local sports for a solid year or so. The truth is this organization has evolved mightily in the days since a mostly empty Sun Devil Stadium. Whisenhunt was a big part part of that evolution, as were Dennis Green’s draft picks and Warner. And Adrian Wilson, Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald and countless others. The construction of University of Phoenix Stadium was perhaps the premiere driving force behind that evolution. Stubborn to a fault? Sometimes. Struggles to evaluate quarterbacks? Surely. But you don’t take a team to the Super Bowl and then follow it up with a 10-win season by being somebody’s caddie. Here’s wishing Ken Whisenhunt well. And I don’t mean that in a false, fakey, good-luck-go-get-em kind of way. It’s a genuine desire to see him succeed in his second go-around as a head coach, and it’s for a couple of reasons.First, he deserves another shot to prove his worth as a head coach in this league. There’s no doubt his time here had run its course, but his résumé was too impressive to think he hadn’t earned another opportunity to show he can do it.
