The Cubs Curse Is Now More Likely To End Than To Continue

The Cubs Curse Is Now More Likely To End Than To Continue

With an 8-4 victory in Los Angeles Thursday night, the Chicago Cubs took a 3-2 NLCS lead over the LA Dodgers and now head back to Chicago just one win away from the World Series. According to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo prediction model, the Cubs have an 81 percent chance of capturing the franchise’s first pennant since 1945. And with a 51 percent probability of winning the World Series, Chicago is now more likely than not to end its 108-year drought and celebrate a title for the first time since 1908.Of course, Cubs fans have heard some version of this before. The team entered Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS under the same conditions — up three games to two, needing only to win one of the next two games (both at Wrigley Field) to clinch the pennant — but then disaster struck. They also led the 1984 NLCS two games to none, needing to win only one of the next three games in San Diego to advance (back when the league championship series used a best-of-five format). That advantage conferred an even greater pennant probability184 percent, according to a basic calculation that just looks at home-field advantage and the number of games remaining at each location. than Chicago has now or had in 2003,279 percent in both cases, according to the same measure we looked at for 1984. and they still managed to blow it. So Chicagoans can be forgiven if they’re not booking travel to Cleveland quite yet.And if the Cubs’ championship dreams end up being deferred to a 109th year, it’ll probably be because of the Dodgers’ pitching trio of Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen and Rich Hill. According to Elo’s starting-pitcher rating component, Kershaw is the best starter in baseball by a mile — he boosts LA’s Elo rating by a whopping 71 points when he takes the mound — and he’ll try to help the Dodgers stave off elimination Saturday night. Hill, LA’s starter for a potential Game 7, is no slouch either: He ranks 14th among starting pitchers in our ratings. And for his part, Jansen, the Dodgers’ closer, has completely shut down the Cubs when called upon in the NLCS so far, notching 16.2 strikeouts per 9 innings over a couple of multi-inning appearances.The Cubs will counter with their own aces — Game 6 starter Kyle Hendricks ranks seventh in Elo, and they’ll likely send 18th-ranked Jake Arrieta to the hill in Game 7 — but Chicago’s fate might come down to how well its lineup hits LA’s star pitchers. Although the Cubs’ offense has been incredibly uneven in this series, scoring eight or more runs in each of the team’s three wins and zero in each of its two losses, the common threads in those scoreless games have been that either Kershaw or Hill took the mound as the starter, and Jansen (who appeared in both games) came in to close it out. Before Chicago can pop champagne in Wrigley’s spacious, newly renovated locker room, they’ll probably have to score some runs off the Dodgers’ aces.But for now, the Cubs find themselves in a good spot. They’ve been the talk of baseball all season long; now they’re closer than ever to fulfilling their potential and ending the franchise’s absurdly long dry spell.

Sumitomo takes 5 stake in Newmontoperated Minera Yanacocha

first_imgNewmont Mining has welcomed Sumitomo as a new and valued partner in Minera Yanacocha SRL following its purchase of a 5% stake in the partnership. Newmont, Buenaventura and Sumitomo completed the transaction today in which Sumitomo paid $48 million for the ownership interest in Yanacocha. In December 2017, Yanacocha repurchased the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) 5% stake which it held since 1992 when it provided debt financing for construction of the operation.As a result of the transaction, Newmont and Buenaventura’s ownership interests in Yanacocha will revert to 51.35% and 43.65%, respectively, the proportion held prior to the repurchase of the IFC’s ownership stake in December. The transaction is structured as a new share issuance to Sumitomo, with the payment going towards Yanacocha’s cash balances.“Sumitomo brings mining expertise, high performance standards, and a shared commitment to extending profitable and responsible production at Yanacocha,” said Randy Engel, Executive Vice President, Strategic Development. “We had a long and productive partnership with Sumitomo at Batu Hijau in Indonesia, and we look forward to working with them and Buenaventura to advance the next generation of profitable production at Yanacocha.”In October, Newmont’s Board of Directors approved full funding for Quecher Main which is expected to extend Yanacocha’s oxide mine life to 2027. Quecher Main also will serve as a bridge to future growth options, including development of Yanacocha’s extensive sulfide deposits. If approved, the sulfides project could extend Yanacocha’s operational life through 2039. Sumitomo also is currently partnered with Buenaventura at Freeport’s Cerro Verde copper mine in southern Peru.last_img read more

Heres How to Turn Off Googles Saved Searches and Personalized Results

first_imgSeptember 25, 2018 6 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globalcenter_img What’s the difference between President Donald Trump and a takeout sandwich?For one, it’s how Google treats a search for each. Type “best sandwich shops” into the search engine, and chances are you’ll be presented with top-rated spots in your current zip code. Search “Donald Trump,” and more generally applicable content — recent news hits, the president’s Twitter account and the White House website — receive top billing. Though we have an idea of how Google prioritizes different sets of search results, the algorithms themselves are a mystery. When it comes to personalized search, though, we do know one thing: The company saves user data, including recent search history, to potentially tweak results based on each individual. For your lunchtime query, if you type only “sub” into the search bar, Google may use your search history to determine you’re talking about a sandwich and not a submarine.No matter whether you’re seeking out the president or a panini, there’s a chance your past search history could inform the order of results. If you’re, say, a CNN loyalist, Google may use your search history to bump up that publication’s Trump content a couple of spots, whereas staunch readers of Fox News may see that publication featured slightly more prominently on the results page. By and large, however, searches should yield similar results for any user — and Google will never personalize results to be more liberal- or conservative-oriented, said Danny Sullivan, Google’s public liasion for Search. The company does not even have a way of sorting results into such categories, he said. It’s important to note that personalization is often conflated with localization, but the search engine giant maintains that they’re two separate entities. For your lunchtime query, spots within walking distance of your office may show up first, but those results should be the same for everyone in your area. “Personalization is when search results change on something that is related to only you and no one else,” Sullivan told Entrepreneur. “Localization is when something changes based on the location where a search is happening, which isn’t unique to an individual because it’s shared by a group.” According to Google, around 2 percent of search queries are treated with some level of personalization. And though the company supports personalization, it condemns bias, as CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in an email to employees on Friday.“We do not bias our products to favor any political agenda,” he wrote. “The trust our users place in us is our greatest asset, and we must always protect it. If any Googler ever undermines that trust, we will hold them accountable.”Pichai’s comments follow a recent report in The Wall Street Journal that brought to light an internal Google discussion after President Trump’s 2017 travel ban. The ban restricted travel to the U.S. from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, and in the internal email thread, employees discussed an idea to volley pro-immigration results in search. According to Google, the discussion was simply a brainstorming session and none of the ideas were ever implemented. But the disclosure will likely fuel critics’ complaints, especially as the 2020 election approaches, that large tech companies such as Google suppress conservative perspectives online.“We build products for people of every background and belief, and we have strong policies to ensure that our products remain free of bias,” Pichai wrote.It’s a vital conversation to have, as prominent tech companies hold the power to influence public opinion on a mammoth scale. According to peer-reviewed research published in 2015, a search engine’s algorithm may have the ability to shift undecided voters’ voting preferences by 20 percent or more — and up to 80 percent in some demographic groups — without the voters’ knowledge.But in Google’s case — as far as personalized search results go — that doesn’t seem to be a pressing issue. Although as much as 11.7 percent of search engine results may show differences due to personalization, according to a 2013 paper by Northeastern University’s Algorithm Auditing Research Group, researchers were surprised to find that past searches and browsing history did not seem to inform results in a signfiicant way. They found that a user’s location — as well as the status of being signed into a Google account — had the most impact on results. (Note that in this paper, researchers included localization in their definition of personalization.) Related: Here’s How to Stop Third Parties From Reading Your GmailThough Google works to avoid top-level bias, there’s a more overarching idea to consider here: Personalization in any capacity can contribute to ground-level bias — or a “filter bubble” on the consumer level. The term was coined by internet activist Eli Pariser around 2010, and balancing that very idea — of an “echo chamber” of sorts that purports an individual’s own way of thinking — is something many tech companies continue to struggle with.“While personalization provides obvious benefits for users, it also opens up the possibility that certain information may be unintentionally hidden from users,” the Northeastern University researchers wrote.Whether you’re concerned with data security or want to avoid potential tweaks to results, here’s your starter guide for turning off Google’s personalization features on your computer.To prevent saved searches and browsing history:Go to Activity Controls, then pause each feature, such as Web & App Activity, Location History, Device Information, YouTube Search History and YouTube Watch History.To delete account activity:Go to Delete Activity, then select the date ranges for which you’d like to delete your account activity.To control ad personalization:Go to Ad Personalization, turn off the feature, then go here to control it on other websites and apps that use Google ad services.If you’re aiming to turn off personalization on your Android, iPhone or iPad:Go here.

EU raises eurozone forecast despite bleaker Greek outlook

EU raises eurozone forecast despite bleaker Greek outlook

first_img BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union has nudged up its forecast for economic growth across the 19-country eurozone despite a much gloomier outlook for Greece, which is struggling to get its hands on vital bailout cash it needs to pay off debts.In its spring forecast published Tuesday, the EU’s executive branch said it is predicting 1.5 percent growth for the eurozone in 2015, up 0.2 percentage points from the previous forecast in February. For 2016, the Commission has kept its forecast of 1.9 percent for the eurozone. Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep.

The European Union on Tuesday nudged up its forecast for economic growth across the 19-country eurozone despite a much gloomier outlook for Greece.(AP Photo/Geert Vanden Wijngaert) The Commission’s Moscovici conceded that the forecast for Greece is subject “to a high degree of uncertainty” and is premised on a successful conclusion to the current discussions between the Greek government and creditors. The two sides have been locked in talks for months but there are some hopes that a deal may be seen on May 11 at a meeting of the eurozone’s 19 finance ministers in Brussels.“What I would hope between now and May 11, the eurogroup will be able to see significant progress in our discussions with Greece,” he said. “I think that is the signal everyone is waiting for both in Greece and among Greece’s partners.”___Pylas contributed from London.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility One country seemingly going the other way is Greece, which is struggling to agree on a package of economic reforms with European creditors to unlock bailout funds. Without the 7.2 billion euros ($7.8 billion), Greece could face bankruptcy and a potential exit from the euro.The uncertainty, which has grown since the left-wing Syriza party won January’s general election on a promise to bring an end to hated austerity policies, has weighed on the Greek economy. Businesses and investors are wary of making long-term plans in a country whose economic future is clouded in uncertainty.The European Commission now anticipates 0.5 percent growth this year. That’s a stunning 2 percentages points lower than the forecast made just three months ago. For 2016, the Commission anticipates Greek growth to accelerate to 2.9 percent.In its forecast, the Commission said the “positive momentum” that was building up last year after Greece’s savage recession came to an end has been stunted.The Commission also said the uncertainty has contributed to a “significant shortfall” in state revenues at the turn of the year.Greece has relied on bailout cash — some 240 billion euros — from its euro partners and International Monetary Fund for five years after its public finances spiraled out of control and investors were reluctant to lend it money. Years of austerity, such as big cuts to government spending, have helped reduce the country’s borrowing levels but the debt burden as a proportion of economic output has continued to rise amid recession. Top Stories It said the eurozone as a whole is benefiting from a number of factors, including lower oil prices, a steady global outlook, the weaker euro, the 1.1 trillion-euro monetary stimulus ($1.2 trillion) from the European Central Bank and less stringent budget policies.“The European economy is enjoying its brightest spring in several years, with the upturn supported by both external factors and policy measures that are beginning to bear fruit,” said Pierre Moscovici, European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs. “But more needs to be done to ensure this recovery is more than a seasonal phenomenon.”The recovery is being powered by Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, which is expected to post solid growth of 1.9 percent this year, followed by 2 percent next. Another standout is Spain, which is expected to grow by a healthy 2.8 percent in 2015 and 2.6 percent the following year.For some it was proof that a relaxation in the government belt-tightening measures that dominated EU policy for much of the financial crisis is starting to pay off.“The recovery has arrived because Europe has taken a break from the policies of austerity,” the European Trade Union Confederation said in a statement. “Growth has finally been given a fighting chance.”last_img read more
