Braves Add Justin Upton With Brother BJ Upton in

The Atlanta Braves, long criticized locally for the lack of African-American players on its roster, traded Thursday to acquire former Arizona Diamondbacks Justin Upton, which pairs him in the outfield with older brother B.J. Upton, who signed as a free agent in the summer.Throw in right-fielder Jason Heyward, and Atlanta has an all-black outfield, something not seen since the 1996 opening day lineup featuring Marquis Grissom, David Justice and Mike Kelly.The trade brings to Atlanta Justin Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson, while the Diamondback receive pitcher Randell Delgado, infielder Martin Prado and minor league prospects Nick Ahmed, Brandon Drury and Zeke Spruill, according to ESPN.The deal is pending physicals of players involved.After signing, B.J. Upton said he wanted to play with this brother in the same outfield. Matched with Heyward, the Braves have built one of baseball’s best outfields. Heyward won his first Gold Glove in 2012, when he hit .269 with 27 homers and 82 RBIs.The Diamondbacks once viewed Justice Upton as a player they would build around for years to come. At age 21, he hit 26 homers, scored 84 runs and drove in 86 runs. In March 2010, Arizona signed Upton to a six-year, $51.5 million deal. The D-backs made the playoffs in 2011, and Upton finished fourth in NL MVP voting.But the Diamondbacks started discussing possible Upton trades that fall, and after he got off to a poor start in 2012, Arizona owner Ken Kendrick criticized Upton and other players in a radio interview.Arizona again looked into trading Upton before the July 31 deadline last summer and continued to have discussions once this offseason began. It became increasingly apparent that the relationship between the Diamondbacks and Upton had been damaged.The Diamondbacks had agreed to a deal to trade Upton to Seattle earlier this month, but the player vetoed it. Seattle was among four teams on Upton’s contract that he could nix. Atlanta was not on that list.B.J. Upton signed a five-year, $75-million contract with the Braves, the richest in the team’s history.  In August, he and Justin made history when they reached 100 home runs for their careers an hour apart. read more

BAHAMAS Minister Campbell Bids Farewell to Retiring Commodore Davy Rolle

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 16, 2018 – Nassau – Minister of Transport, the Hon. Frankie Campbell bade farewell to retiring Commodore Davy Rolle during a gala dinner held at SuperClubs Breezes on Friday, January 12, 2018.   In 2010, Commodore Davy F. Rolle was appointed Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA) after completing 30 years of military service with the Royal Bahamas Defence Force.Minister Campbell thanked the Commodore for his years in the Public Service, and his significant contribution to the country.“As the Managing Director, Commodore Rolle was responsible for the day-to-day management of the Bahamas Ship Registry, which is the one of the largest in the world with over 1500 totaling 64 million gross tonnage,” said Minister Campbell.   “The Bahamas Maritime Authority also has the responsibility of advising the government on regulatory shipping matters to ensure that The Bahamas can fulfill its international obligations under the international Conventions as adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).”The Minister said the latter is of ‘critical’ importance to the country given the archipelagic nature of The Bahamas and its reliance on maritime trade.“Shipping is an international industry with maritime transport representing more than 80 percent of global trade and the IMO is the regulatory forum that develops the standards for the ships, persons sailing on the ships and companies managing such ships,” he said.He explained that the Council of the IMO has the responsibility of supervising the work of the organization.   “I am pleased to note that under the Commodore and the Authority’s team in conjunction with the Bahamas High Commission (representing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) was elected to the IMO Council on four occasions,” said Minister Campbell.He said that membership of the IMO Council represents a ‘significant’ achievement not only for the nation but also regionally for the Caribbean and globally for small island developing states.   The Commodore, according to Minister Campbell, was also instrumental in several initiatives in the maritime sector, including being one of the first countries to ratify and implement the International Labour Organization (ILO) Maritime Labour Convention, which provides for more suitable working and living conditions for seafarers.Mr. Campbell said that Commodore’s military background allowed him to utilize his management experience to “ensure the task was achieved with the resources available.”“Let’s get the job done became his buzzword as he strived to balance the national objectives with the delivery of a quality service to all the Authority’s stakeholders,” he said.   “Getting the job done has resulted in global expansion of the Registry’s service offering — through opening of offices in Hong Kong and Greece with the latter being the largest ship ownership country, and the former targeting a greater share of the Far East market.”The Bahamas, said Minister Campbell, remains the flag of choice for passenger ships.   “The Authority’s oversight of the quality performance and standards has been rewarded by the Bahamas achieving United States Coast Guard ‘Qualship 21’ (quality shipping for the 21st century), and being a non-targeted/low risk flag with Europe and the Far East,” said Minister Campbell.   “These matrices are key performance indicators with the shipping sector and their achievement is attributed the effective management and oversight of the Registry by Commodore and the highly professional and dedicated BMA staff.”He added that the Commodore’s background as a former educator enabled him to focus on the importance of training and education.   “In this vein and a national level, he continued, the strengthening of the national capacity [was achieved] through financial offering to the Bahamas Maritime Cadet Corps and scholarships to State University of New York (SUNY), California Maritime and LJM Maritime Academy.  These schemes provided shipping as a viable career options for young Bahamians,” said the Minister.“Last and not least, I wish to highlight Commodore’s chairmanship of the Committee that drafted the Bahamas National Maritime Policy which was central to the development of the broader shipping strategy.”The Minister bade Commodore Rolle farewell, and wished him well in his future endeavours.

Time Inc. will also provide content for Sprint’s retail stores—the device and network provider will use branded content to demonstrate the capabilities of their devices in-store.“There is a lot of work to be done here and different pieces will be moving at different speeds,” he says. “We certainly want to take this app opportunity to drive people to subscriptions, additional paid content offerings or paid apps, though we’ll have to figure out exactly how that flow works as we develop it with Sprint.”Stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, follow us on Facebook & Twitter!
