What does your dreams really mean
Early arrivals to Target Field on Tuesday unaware the Twins traded Brian Dozier to the Dodgers figured it out quickly. Around 3 p.m., well before batting practice, third base coach Gene Glynn was out hitting ground balls to the presumed starting infielders. The sight of utility man Ehire Adrianza at second base instead of Dozier suggested something was up, and a quick scroll through Twitter confirmed it.Back in the clubhouse, Dozier said hasty goodbyes while packing for a dash to the airport and a flight to Los Angeles. Kyle Gibson, the Twins starting pitcher that night, hurried to the ballpark as soon as he heard the news and caught Dozier before he left. Dozier inherited the Twins leadership mantle from Torii Hunter, and Gibson said Dozier told him, “Don’t let these guys quit.” Gibson wondered how to tell his three-year-old daughter, Hayden, that one of her favorites no longer played here.Then Dozier was gone, leaving a clubhouse of angry teammates and an even … [Read more...] about What does the Twins sell-off mean for the future of Joe Mauer?
Mark Kurlyandchik Detroit Free Press Published 9:13 p.m. UTC Jun 13, 2018 At this year's James Beard Foundation Awards — the Oscars of food, as they're known — women and chefs of color took home a historic number of awards in a reckoning not unlike the one that swept through the actual Oscars last year. But the accolades and newfound media attention bestowed upon historically marginalized restaurant professionals mean little if they don't lead to structural changes that address the pervasive inequities of what's still very much a male-dominated, Euro-centric industry. What might a more equitable food future look like? A temporary restaurant popping up Thursday through Tuesday in Detroit will attempt to answer that question. For those six days, the Cass Cafe in Midtown will transform into the Dream Cafe. "The Dream Cafe is demonstrating that a different way is possible," said Allied Media Conference Culinary Director Ora … [Read more...] about Temporary Dream Cafe in Detroit brings social justice to the table
The krona dropped still lower last week after Sweden's central bank signalled that with inflation still stubbornly under target there was now no chance of an end to negative interest rates this summer. You now need 10.6 kronor to buy a euro, up from 8.2 back in 2012. "It's quite clear that the krona is exceptionally weak," Andreas Wallström, Chief Analyst at Nordea Markets, tells The Local. "Apart from the financial crisis, you have to go back 100 years to find it weaker...although of course the euro didn't exist back then, so it's sort of a synthetic euro." He doesn't expect change any time soon. "There's currently nothing really pointing to a strengthening of the krona. If you look at growth relative to the eurozone, we are really in for a slowdown now, whereas growth in Europe is quite strong." Richard Falkenhäll, Senior FX Strategist at SEB, agrees: "We have probably, along with Switzerland, the lowest … [Read more...] about What does the ‘exceptionally weak’ Swedish krona mean for you?
After a whirlwind free agency period, Bears general manager Ryan Pace was able to recharge a little during the NFL owners meeting before a four-week sprint to the draft that begins next week.Pace touched on a variety of topics in an interview with the Tribune. Answers are edited for space and clarity.How did the timing of the offer sheet that Kyle Fuller signed with the Packers play out?RP: We didn’t have a lot of heads up on it. We found out very close to receiving the offer sheet that he was in Green Bay. When he was coming back from that trip he was connecting in Chicago on a layover and he stayed in Chicago.The Bears announced their intention to match the offer sheet within hours of it being signed. Why act immediately?RP: We could have waited and dragged it out. Hey, we know we like the player. Once we understood the contract and we knew it was a fair contract, let’s just be decisive and go.Was it your hope that Fuller would sign an offer sheet so another team would … [Read more...] about What’s Ryan Pace’s ideal draft scenario?
