BA and Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving has been the center of the league’s attention with the uncertainty surrounding his future. The superstar guard has a player option for next season which must be decided before the June 29 deadline.

The Nets superstar attended the BET Awards on Sunday night with his stepmother Shetellia Riley Irving, who also happens to be his agent. A reporter for Complex News asked Irving about his future and asked him “if he still wanted to be a Brooklyn Net”. Irving replied

“Pass it… pass it to my left,” Kyrie said, pointing to her mother-in-law.

Irving’s future with the franchise has been the subject of mass speculation, with constant rumors linking him with a move elsewhere. The LA Lakers and New York Knicks are said to be two teams vying for guard duties ahead of the 2022-23 season.

If Irving were to leave the Brooklyn Nets, it would also mean he would leave close friend Kevin Durant after convincing him to join the Nets instead of the Knicks in the summer of 2019.


Dreary summer for Kyrie Irving and the Nets

Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets – Game 3

When the 2021-22 season began, the Brooklyn Nets were heavy favorites to win the championship with a Big Three of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden. However, things didn’t quite go as planned for Irving or the Nets.

Harden is currently with the Philadelphia 76ers. Kyrie Irving has missed most of the season due to his reluctance to get vaccinated. Irving’s former team, the Celtics, swept the Nets in the first round of the playoffs. Boston’s defense smothered Durant and Irving. The duo struggled to shoot because of the constant double teams.

Kyrie Irving is the 5th player with multiple career games of 50 points and 75% FG pct in the stopwatch era. He and Michael Jordan are the only primary guards with multiple of those games. https://t.co/HT5dD59vBL

In the Harden trade, the Nets received Ben Simmons in return. However, this acquisition didn’t make any difference as the Aussie didn’t play a single minute due to a back injury.

Things are looking bleak for the Nets as a summer full of question marks looms on the horizon. Kyrie Irving is set to walk away from the Nets and potentially team up with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. This decision could very well cause Durant to want to leave the franchise because Irving and KD are as big as thieves.

Irving’s future and potential coaching changes are high on Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks’ list of priorities as they aim to build and challenge for the championship next season.

Carol Vorderman was left almost speechless on the latest episode of Celebrity Gogglebox as her co-star Gyles Brandreth asked her about her sex life.

The former Countdown star, 61, sat down with Gyles, 74, to watch shows such as Love Island and The Bridge – but it was a screening of Fifty Shades of Gray that caused a stir.

The TV duo watched the film sexily, with a scene showing Christian Gray (played by Jamie Dornan) introducing Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) to her so-called game room.

Anastasia asked Christian about his whips and restraints, then asked if he was a “sadist”.



Gyles Brandreth asked Carol Vorderman if she was a ‘dominant’

But he told her he was more of a “dominant,” prompting Gyles to ask Carol his own question.

Gyles, who is also a regular on This Morning, turned to Carol and asked, “Are you a Dominant? I’ve known you for 40 years, are you a Dominant?”

Carol kept her mouth shut and laughed before she knew exactly what to say.

Going back to her countdown roots, she joked, “It’s an eight-letter word.”

And Gyles, seemingly pleased with the response, replied, “Very well.”

Carol got fans excited earlier this week when she revealed she would be on Celebrity Gogglebox with Gyles.

She shared a series of images of their time on the couch and wrote alongside them, “So I’m making my debut this Friday at 9pm on one of my favorite shows of all time and joining the Gogglebox gang with my friend from 40 year old Gyles.”

The beauty continued, “Watch this week and let me know if you’re ok…we talk a little…unrestricted.”

Fans and her celebrity pals were quick to respond, with ITV’s Andi Peters saying, “Are you talking a little? Are you saying that’s not true? I can’t believe it. Lots of love darling can’t wait to see it!”

And Gabby Logan told her, “I love Gogglebox, I love you…so this is a must-have watch.”

Carol and Gyles were on the show alongside other famous faces including Fearne Cotton and Gok Wan, Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash and Fred Sirieix and his fiancée Fruitcake.

Frequent small-stakes assessments can help marginalized students close an achievement gap in teaching physiology, according to research to be presented this week at the American Physiological Institute on Teaching and Learning. Society (APS) in Madison, Wisconsin.

Low-stakes assessments, sometimes also called low-stakes assessments, are ways of assessing student progress that do not have a large impact on final grades or results. Quizzes, practice exams, and other quick-response activities are types of low-stakes assessments. Physiology educator-researchers at the University of Minnesota previously found that low-stakes assessments helped improve test scores in a basic physiology course. In a new study, the research team examined achievement gaps in a principles of physiology course compared to grade point average (GPA) in physiology majors over three years.

Educator-researchers looked at the identifying factors of students, including:

  • race;
  • genre;
  • first-generation status (if the student was the first in their family to go to university);
  • class (sophomore, junior or senior); and
  • stated financial need.

Enrollment in the principles of physiology course tends to be predominantly white women who are first-generation students. Non-white students enrolled in the course tended to be the ones who underperformed, with grades below 70%. However, the low-stakes assessments helped reduce the number of students who received lower grades in the course. Additionally, the semester GPAs of the non-white group were between 3.0 and 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, confirming that frequent testing opportunities helped close this achievement gap.

“The female, non-white, first generation [students] tended to have lower final scores to begin with, but have improved year over year,” said first author Steven C. Wu, Ph.D. “Giving students more opportunities to earn points helps to narrow the gaps and narrow the gaps in academic performance and physiology knowledge. However, there is still a long way to go for those who are underperforming against their GPA.”

Can you name the Chelsea XI of Frank Lampard’s debut in 2001? https://buzzez.co.uk/can-you-name-the-chelsea-xi-of-frank-lampards-debut-in-2001/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 10:59:29 +0000 https://buzzez.co.uk/can-you-name-the-chelsea-xi-of-frank-lampards-debut-in-2001/

Frank Lampard is one of Chelsea’s greatest legends, but there were still doubts when he arrived at Stamford Bridge from West Ham in 2001.

He made his debut against Newcastle in the first game of the 2001-02 Premier League season, but can you name the Chelsea team that started that game?

Lampard, the most scored midfielder in Premier League history, cost the west London club £11million.

He was signed by London rivals West Ham, where his father had played and where he had worked his way through the youth academy to become a first-team star under his uncle Harry Redknapp.

“He’s good enough and he will definitely be good enough,” Redknapp replied when a fan asked why the youngster had so many chances in the first team.

“I didn’t want to say that in front of him. But he will go all the way up.

“There is no doubt in my opinion. Because he has everything it takes to become a top midfielder. His attitude is first class. He has strength. He can play. He can pass it. And he can score goals.

And go to the top that Lampard did. At Chelsea he won it all, winning the Premier League three times, the FA Cup four times and of course the Champions League in 2012.

But do you remember the starting line-up in Lampard’s first game for Chelsea, a 1-1 against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on August 19, 2001? The office time to beat is 00:59 and we gave you Lampard for free.

If you want another challenge after that, why not try and name Chelsea’s starting XI in Claudio Ranieri’s last game as boss in 2004?

ED interviews Rahul for the 3rd day in a row https://buzzez.co.uk/ed-interviews-rahul-for-the-3rd-day-in-a-row/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 17:30:12 +0000 https://buzzez.co.uk/ed-interviews-rahul-for-the-3rd-day-in-a-row/

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi appeared before the ED on Wednesday for the third straight day of questioning in the National Herald money laundering case, with the agency seeking answers over decisions made at the regard to the media organization and its owner Young Indian. Gandhi (51) arrived at ED headquarters on APJ Abdul Kalam Road in central Delhi at around 11:35 a.m. with his “Z+” category CRPF security escort.

He was accompanied by his sister and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as his convoy sped past police barricades crowded with journalists and party supporters. The interrogation began at 12 noon. He was grilled for about three hours, after which he left for an hour’s break, possibly for lunch. He joined the probe around 4 p.m.

A huge contingent of police and paramilitaries has been deployed around the office of the federal agency, and restraining orders under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) are in effect. Priyanka Gandhi left shortly after dropping off her brother at the Law Enforcement (ED) Directorate Pravartan Bhawan office on Vidyut Lane which borders APJ Abdul Kalam Road.

A number of protesting Congress leaders and supporters were detained by police and herded into DTC and Delhi Police buses at several locations between the ED office and the party headquarters at 24 Akbar Road . Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel told reporters outside the Congress headquarters that the government was “killing democracy” because party workers and office bearers were not allowed to enter the premises of the Congress. AICC by the police.

Rahul Gandhi clocked over 24 hours in multiple question and answer sessions over the past two days at the ED office. He left at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday after being interrogated for more than 11 hours on the second day. Officials said Gandhi’s interrogation could not be completed on Tuesday, and therefore he was asked to continue recording his statement on Wednesday. About 15 to 16 questions about the formation of the Young Indian Society, the operations of the National Herald newspaper, the loan granted by Congress to the Associated Journals Limited (AJL) and the transfer of funds within the media establishment have were asked of Gandhi. during the interrogation held so far, sources said.

They said Gandhi’s role and detailed statement in the case was vital as he is a “major shareholder” of Young Indian (YI) and an “important person” in the affairs of the AJL and the National Herald. It is understood that the agency asked him about the assets held by AJL. With the agency tying up a building worth over Rs 16 crore in Mumbai in 2020, proceedings in the case have become criminal compared to civil proceedings conducted under the Income Tax Act. Gandhi was also reportedly asked about a loan of Rs 1 crore taken out by YI from a Kolkata-based company in February 2011 and the rationale behind it.

The questions posed to Gandhi, the sources said, start from the year 2011 when YI was incorporated. It was also learned that the questions related to changes in the company’s shareholding scheme subsequently, the procedures followed and the salaries and VRS granted to journalists working in the organization, among other issues. Congress has denied any wrongdoing in the matter, saying YI is a nonprofit corporation established under Section 25 of the Corporations Act.

The party said the AJL, which was established in 1937, was facing huge debts and Congress, from 2002 to 2011, gave Rs 90 crore to the National Herald newspaper, of which Rs 66 crore went to been used to pay journalists’ salaries/VRS. and the employees who worked there. The rest of the money was handed over to the government as a pending rental amount for assets held by AJL, its electricity and construction expenses and council tax, the spokesman said. Congress, Randeep Surjewala.

Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Pawan Bansal were questioned in the case recently, and Kharge said he provided “evidence” to the agency during his interrogation. The investigation relates to alleged financial irregularities in the Congress-promoted Young Indian Private Limited, owner of the National Herald newspaper. The newspaper is published by AJL and is owned by Young Indian Private Limited. Rahul Gandhi’s mother and Congresswoman Sonia Gandhi, who is currently admitted to a hospital here due to Covid-related issues, was also summoned by the agency for questioning in the case on June 23. The ED recently registered a new case under the criminal liability provisions of the PMLA after a Magistrate Court heard of an investigation by the Department of Income Tax against Young Indian based on a private criminal complaint filed by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy in 2013.

Sonia and Rahul Gandhi are among the promoters and shareholders of Young Indian. Swamy had accused Sonia and Rahul Gandhi and others of conspiring to cheat and embezzle funds, with YI only paying Rs 50 lakh for the right to recover Rs 90.25 crore which the AJL owed Congress.
