Tom Brady reminds rookie to ‘study your playbook’ in Instagram comment

Tom Brady clearly wants his teammates focused on winning another Super Bowl this season.

So when rookie edge rusher Chase Winovich posted an Instagram photo Wednesday and captioned it with a helping of poetic verses from William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” Brady had to make sure his New England Patriots teammate got his head back in the game.

TOM BRADY HAVING HARD TIME ADJUSTING TO NEW HELMET: ‘I DON’T REALLY LOVE THAT ONE THAT I’M IN’

“Study your playbook,” Brady commented.

The Patriots selected Winovich in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Winovich attended Michigan, the same college Brady attended in the late 1990s.

In his final season with the Wolverines, Winovich recorded 59 total tackles and five sacks in 13 games. He led the Big Ten Conference in 2017 in tackles for a loss with 19.

New England is looking for its seventh Super Bowl title this season, after defeating the Los Angeles Rams in February to pick up ring No. 6.

The Patriots defeated the Detroit Lions 31-3 in their first preseason game of this season. The Patriots have the Tennessee Titans, Carolina Panthers and New York Giants left on the schedule.

R. Kelly fails to appear for Chicago court date, prosecutors allege he ‘refused transport’

R&B singer R. Kelly missed a status hearing in court Thursday after prosecutors allege he “refused transport” from his Chicago jail cell.

Kelly, 52, was arrested in llinois last month on several charges including child pornography, coercion or enticement and transporting for prositution after prosecuters in several states accused him of using his fame to recruit young women and girls into illegal sexual activity.

R. KELLY UNDER PRESSURE TO MAKE DEAL FOLLOWING FEDERAL CHARGES IN SEX CRIME CASES 

He was due to appear in a Cook County federal court Thursday for a status hearing but when he failed to show, Judge Lawrence Flood wanted answers.

“The defendant was to be brought to court today. That was all worked out. The sheriffs were going to be bringing him over,” Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Gonzalez said according to an NBC report.

“As I understand it, he refused transport and so that is why the defendant is not before your honor today,” she continued.

But Kelly’s defense attorney Steve Greenberg denied the allegation, arguing instead that the singer failed to show because of transportation issues.

“I don’t want to discuss matters that I discussed with the U.S. Marshals Service in open court,” Greenberg told Flood according to the report. “Suffice it to say, the Marshal Service says that moving Mr. Kelly is a large undertaking.”

R. KELLY CHARGED WITH SOLICITING A MINOR IN MINNESOTA 

Some of the transportation issues Greenberg could be referencing may include the fact that Kelly is facing several sexual abuse charges in several states including New York and recently Minnesota.

Kelly faces 40 counts, including two state counts brought against him earlier this month in Minnesota, that carry a combined maximum prison sentence of more than 500 years. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges aside from the new ones where he has yet to be arraigned.

The 21 Illinois state charges accuse him of sexually abusing three girls and a woman over a roughly 10-year period starting in the late 1990s. The two Minnesota charges, prostitution and solicitation, alleging that he invited a 17-year-old girl to his hotel room in 2001 and paid her $200 to dance naked with him.

The 13 federal counts brought in Chicago accuse him of, among other things, filming himself having sex with underage girls and of paying off potential witnesses in his 2008 trial to get them to change their stories. The New York federal charges accuse Kelly of running a racketeering enterprise that arranged for girls to have sex with the singer.

Thursday’s hearing proceeded without Kelly but he is due to appear for another status hearing on September 17.

America’s largest asteroid impact left a trail of destruction across the eastern US

About 35 million years ago, an asteroid traveling nearly 144,000 mph (231,000  km/h) smashed into the Atlantic Ocean near the modern-day town of Cape Charles, Virginia. The space rock vaporized instantly, but its impact triggered a gargantuan tsunami, cast up a monsoon of shattered rocks and molten glass that spanned hundreds of miles and carved out the single largest crater in the United States — the so-called Chesapeake Bay impact structure.

Today, that 25-mile-wide (40 kilometers) crater is buried half a mile below the rocky basement of Chesapeake Bay — the 200-mile-long (320 km) estuary linking Virginia and Maryland on the East Coast. That hasn’t stopped scientists from trying to piece together the site’s mysterious history since it was first discovered during a drilling project in 1990.

In a recent study of ocean sediment cores taken almost 250 miles (400 km) northeast of the impact site, researchers found traces of radioactive debris dating to the time of the strike, providing fresh evidence of the impact’s age and destructive power.

RELATED: CRASH! THE 10 BIGGEST IMPACT CRATERS ON EARTH

When the Chesapeake Bay impactor smashed into the Atlantic, it showered the surrounding land and water with shards of molten glass (known as “tektites”) for hundreds of miles in every direction. This rain of meteoric debris formed what scientists call the North American tektite strewn field, the study authors wrote, which stretches from Texas to Massachusetts to Barbados, covering about 4 million square miles (10 million square km) of terrain. By studying shards of meteoric rock buried deep within this sweeping field of impact wreckage, scientists can gather clues about the asteroid’s key characteristics, including its age.

In their recent study (published June 21 in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science), researchers from Arizona State University dated 21 microscopic shards of zircon — a durable gemstone that can survive underground for billions of years. These zircons were lodged in a sediment core taken from roughly 2,150 feet (655 meters) below the Atlantic Ocean. Not only is zircon commonly found in tektites, but it is also a choice mineral for radiometric dating, thanks to some of its radioactive elemental components.

In this case, the researchers used a dating technique called uranium–thorium–helium dating, which looks at how radioactive isotopes, or versions, of uranium and thorium decay into helium. By comparing the ratios of specific helium, thorium and uranium isotopes in each mineral sample, the researchers calculated approximately how long ago the zircon crystals solidified and started to decay.

The team found that the 21 crystals ranged widely in age, running the gamut from about 33 million to 300 million years old. The two youngest samples, which had an average age of about 35 million years old, fit in with previous studies’ estimates for the time of the Chesapeake Bay impact. A closer examination showed that the zircons also bore a cloudy appearance and deformed surface, two signs the minerals were kicked through the air and water by a great impact.

The team concluded that these two young crystals were part of the Chesapeake impact’s path of destruction, confirming that the impact occurred about 35 million years ago. Moreover, the researchers wrote, it showed that uranium–thorium–helium dating is a viable method for constraining the age of ancient impact events, giving scientists a fresh tool to reveal our planet’s long and violent past.

Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell photographed at California burger joint: report

Westlake Legal Group Ghislaine-Maxwell-GettyImages-590696434 Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell photographed at California burger joint: report fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc df55cdae-697d-5c34-9ed1-29a86cbe741a Danielle Wallace article

Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious, alleged madam surfaced Thursday at a California In-N-Out Burger, where a photographer snapped her reading a spy novel while scarfing down a burger and fries.

Ghislaine Maxwell, 57, allegedly provided Epstein with underage sex slaves. Court documents allege Maxwell, who is the daughter of the late, disgraced publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, also participated in threesomes with Epstein and underage girls, according to multiple women who have come forward in the case.

EPSTEIN ACCUSER’S LAWYER: GHISLAINE MAXWELL WAS A ‘PRINCIPAL CONSPIRATOR’ IN ALLEGED SEX-TRAFFICKING RING

On Wednesday, one of Epstein’s alleged victims sued Maxwell and three other unidentified female staff members for allegedly conspiring to allow her to be raped, the New York Post reported.

Jennifer Araoz alleged in an op-ed for the New York Times that Maxwell and the other defendants helped Epstein lure her to his mansion when she was a 15-year-old high school freshman under the guise that he would help her career and family. Epstein allegedly forcibly raped her when she refused to have sex with him.

Araoz was first to file a lawsuit after New York’s Child Victims Act went into effect Wednesday. The new law removed a statute of limitations and permits victims to file lawsuits against those who sexually assaulted them as children until they turn 55-years-old.

The elusive former associate of Epstein could face criminal prosecution, and is believed to have valuable information about Epstein’s illicit activities. Epstein was found dead in his prison cell early Saturday. Authorities said it appeared he committed suicide, but an autopsy has raised questions about his cause of death.

Maxwell was photographed sitting alone in the outside patio area of a Los Angeles In-N-Out Burger restaurant Thursday. She is seen reading an opened book with a burger and fries on the table in front of her, the Post reported.

The front cover of the book, which was not visible in the photograph, featured the title “The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives.” The best-selling work of investigative reporting written by Ted Gup uncovered the untold stories of CIA agents who died anonymously serving the country.

Maxwell has not been photographed in public since 2016, the Post reported. It was reported Wednesday that Maxwell was hiding out in her boyfriend Scott Borgerson’s home in Massachusetts.

A ragged Federer stunned in Cincinnati; Djokovic advances

Westlake Legal Group 1f99918a35574c0aa2f44d4555e45f72-1 A ragged Federer stunned in Cincinnati; Djokovic advances fox-news/sports/tennis fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 782a10b2-81ae-5d05-b171-465274ca8a64

For Roger Federer, it was one big blur. The seven-time champion was ousted from one of his favorite tournaments in barely over an hour, falling in straight sets to a 21-year-old qualifier he’d never faced.

Andre Rublev — with only one career win over a top-five player to his credit — took advantages of Federer’s numerous mistakes for a 6-3, 6-4 victory Thursday that further depleted the top of the men’s bracket in the Western & Southern Open.

“The biggest and the most emotional win,” Rublev called it.

And shockingly fast, too: Federer’s quickest defeat on the tour since 2003.

“To be honest, it’s tough when it’s fast like this to tell you, well, I could have done this or that,” he said.

Federer has won the tournament more than anyone, using it as a springboard to the U.S. Open. He had 16 unforced errors against the 70th-ranked Rublev , who raised both fists and wiped a teary eye in celebration after Federer’s forehand sailed long to end it.

Struggling with his serve, Federer got broken twice in the first set.

“And there you have it. It set the tone for the match a little bit,” Federer said. “He was super clean — offense, defense, serving well. He didn’t give me anything.”

Federer, who lost a classic five-set match for the Wimbledon title to Novak Djokovic, thinks he’s in good shape heading into the U.S. Open despite the upset in Cincinnati.

“I played 45 matches this year, so I think I should be fine,” he said, smiling.

But oh, this last one.

And oh, what about that Big Four reunion?

The tournament originally had Djokovic, Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray together again for the first time since January. Nadal, the second seed, withdrew after winning the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Sunday, citing fatigue.

Murray returned to singles for the first time since another hip operation in January and lost his first match. Federer was gone before the weekend. Djokovic — the last one standing — reached the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Pablo Carreno Busta.

“All in all, it was a very good, quality match,” Djokovic said. “I’m pleased I’m going in the right direction and looking forward to the next one.”

The men’s bracket has become a qualifier’s dream.

Qualifier Yoshihito Nishioka followed his upset of sixth-seeded Kei Nishikori — a player he called his hero — by beating Alex De Minaur 7-5-6-4. It’s the first time in 10 years that two qualifiers have reached the quarterfinals of an ATP Masters 1000 event.

The day began with the ATP fining Nick Kyrgios $113,000 for expletive-filled outbursts that included smashing rackets, insulting a chair umpire and refusing to get ready to return serve during a second-round match the previous night.

In the women’s bracket, top-seeded Ashleigh Barty reached the quarterfinals, joined by a resurgent Venus Williams.

Barty beat Anett Kontaveit 4-6, 7-5, 7-5, raising her fist in triumph after fighting off one match point to take the 2-hour, 10-minute match. She was down a break in the second set before rallying on a day when she struggled to find consistency.

“The best thing is when my back was against the wall, the tennis was there,” Barty said. “It may not have been there the whole match, but we were able to find it when we needed it.”

Barty, the French Open champion and currently ranked No. 2, can move up to the top spot by reaching the final.

With the crowd cheering for her, Williams recovered from a rough first set and beat Donna Vekic 2-6, 6-4, 6-3, her best stretch of tennis in since she won three straight matches in March at Miami.

After a first-round loss in Toronto last week, her ranking slipped to No. 65, her lowest in seven years. With sister Serena cheering courtside, Venus reached the semifinals.

“I mean, I’m pretty pumped,” Venus Williams said. “When you’re winning, it’s fun.”

Serena Williams withdrew from the tournament because of back spasms. She calmly watched her sister advance.

“I think she believed in me,” Venus Williams said. “She was rooting hard but didn’t seem panicked at all after I lost the first set.”

Second-seeded Naomi Osaka and No. 3 Karolina Pliskova also advanced. Madison Keys got a 6-1, 3-6, 7-5 win over No. 4 Simona Halep, still hobbled by a sore left Achilles that caused her to drop out of the Toronto quarterfinals last week. Keys will face Williams in the quarterfinals.

Stanton, Yankees targeting September return from knee injury

Giancarlo Stanton wants to return from his knee injury in time to fine-tune that powerful swing for October.

Sidelined nearly all season, the New York Yankees slugger is hitting indoors and throwing as he rehabs from a sprained right knee that’s been slow to heal since he got hurt June 25. The next step will be jogging and running outside before ramping up baseball activities.

General manager Brian Cashman originally targeted August but now says the AL East leaders hope to get Stanton back sometime in September.

“Once I start moving around, just see how it bounces back. But I do want to have a few weeks of at-bats before October, for sure,” Stanton said Thursday in his first comments to reporters in a while. “I want to be out there for a couple weeks, just the game routine and having whatever amount of at-bats I can.”

The 2017 NL MVP said he’s confident he’ll return to health this season but has no particular date in mind.

“I’m doing everything I can to get there, so that’s what this process is and that’s what I’m working for,” he explained.

“The deadline is when my knee is ready to play major league games,” Stanton added. “So if something happens to that, then I can always get at-bats, non-big league at-bats, but by close to big league pitching, to catch me up if need be. But that is the deadline — not any rush past when my knee is ready.”

Stanton strained his left biceps on March 31 in his third game of the season, strained a shoulder and calf during his rehabilitation and returned June 18. He quickly went down again and is batting .290 with one home run and seven RBIs in nine games this year.

The outfielder and designated hitter was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday.

“It’s been brutal on my side, but it’s been really good to see the team playing so well. I mean, that’s what’s really kept it not so bad for me is just to watch everyone bringing together wins in all different type of ways, not one hero every night,” Stanton said. “That’s what I’ve been focusing on. Not poor me, all this stuff. I’m just watching how good we’ve been playing and just, what strategy for me to come file in. Not to just be back playing, but to get another little boost to what we’ve already been doing really well.”

Despite a cavalcade of injuries to All-Stars and other accomplished players, the streaking Yankees began the day tied for the best record in the majors with the Los Angeles Dodgers at 81-41.

Pointed toward the playoffs, New York held a 10-game lead in the AL East with 40 to play.

“I’m definitely glad to be hitting and moving around. Still got a lot of work to do, but I’m definitely glad for that,” Stanton said. “Just waiting on this knee to be full go and then we’ll be ready.”

Rutgers University asks Louisiana high school to change logo

New Jersey’s flagship university has asked a high school in Louisiana to change its logo because it’s identical to the block “R” that Rutgers has trademarked.

Lincoln Parish Schools official Ricky Durrett tells the Courier News of Bridgewater the company that manages Rutgers’ brand requested Ruston High School stop using it.

Rutgers says the high school has 10 years to replace the logo on gear, social media platforms and on the school’s website.

Rutgers spokeswoman Dory Devlin says the university addresses trademark infringement issues to avoid confusion among brands and to ensure its logos are used for their intended purpose.

Durrett says Rushton Bearcats supporters frequently purchased Rutgers Scarlet Knights athletics gear and apparel for the logo.

Israel’s interior minister has reportedly approved a request from Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., to visit Israel just hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., were barred from entering the country this weekend due to their support of an anti-Israel boycott movement.

In a letter sent to Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Tlaib requested being able to visit her Palestinian grandmother who lives in the West Bank, according to the Jerusalem Post.

“This could be my last opportunity to see her,” Tlaib wrote of her grandmother, who is in her 90s. “I will respect any restrictions and I will not promote any boycotts against Israel during my visit.”

It was not immediately clear if the visit would include any political activities.
