What net neutrality’s end means for advertisers

first_imgIt sounds like the plot of an 80’s movie about the technology of the future… The End of Net Neutrality.You’ve undoubtedly heard about the controversial decision made by the FCC late last week. In a 3-2 decision, the commission voted to end the neutrality regulations that have been in place since 2015. I won’t get into all the ins and out of the net neutrality repeal, but you can read more about that here.In the simplest terms, the newly repealed regulation stated that all websites, large and small, should be treated equally and specifically prohibited:• Blocking: Broadband providers may not block access to lawful content, applications, services or non-harmful devices. continue reading » 30SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Dodgers’ bullpen falters in loss to Cardinals

first_imgThe Dodgers’ bullpen is like your Wi-Fi connection. You only notice it when it doesn’t work.The relief corps had quietly gone over a week (19 1/3 innings) without allowing an earned run, stranding all 12 inherited runners along the way, before Dave Roberts pulled Sunday’s starter Alex Wood after six strong innings.A tie game didn’t stay that way. The St. Louis Cardinals scored three times in the seventh inning and avoided a sweep at Dodger Stadium with a 5-2 victory over the Dodgers on Sunday night.“That’s how it works,” veteran reliever J.P. Howell said. “You want no attention because that means things are going good. This is a reminder to stay on top of things, keep working.” Coleman has been the Dodgers’ most reliable reliever for some time now. He hasn’t given up a hit in May, retiring 13 of the 14 batters he has faced (seven by strikeout with one walk). That included Aledmys Diaz to start the seventh.But Diaz’s comebacker ricocheted off Coleman’s right hip before it was redirected to third baseman Justin Turner who threw to first for the out. Coleman left the game.With two left-handers coming up, he probably would have anyway. Howell came in to face Hazelbaker and got a ground ball back to the mound. Howell was only able to reach up and deflect the ball, however, and this one went for a hit.“I wish I was shorter. I would have missed it,” said Howell who has struggled this season with both poor pitching and bad luck. “That’s kind of the way it’s gone.”Howell did retire Kolten Wong for the second out of the inning and Roberts brought Joe Blanton in to face pinch-hitter Brandon Moss. With first base open, the Dodgers intentionally walked Moss and the Cardinals brought Yadier Molina in to pinch-hit.“At that point in time, I wanted to make the righty beat us,” Roberts said. “Yadi, obviously he’s a great hitter, a clutch hitter. But the way Joe throws the baseball against right-handed hitters that was the decision I chose to make.“He’s faced numerous great right-handed hitters and since he’s gone to his role in the pen, he’s dominated them. … He’s been great in those situations. I’d take him 10 times over.”At the time Roberts was making that decision, right-handed hitters had batted .191 against Blanton with a strikeout every three at-bats since the journeyman was reborn as a reliever in 2015.But the Cardinals’ righties went 3 for 4 against Blanton on Sunday, starting with Molina cracking his bat on a 1-and-0 slider from Blanton but dropping a two-run double down the left field line.“It was a broken bat, off the end of the bat and found some outfield grass,” Roberts said. “It’s not hard contact but obviously it got the job done.”Stephen Piscotty added an RBI single before Blanton could get out of the inning and the Cardinals added another run off Blanton in the eighth after Randal Grichuk led off with a double.Decisive as the bullpen’s latest failure was, the Dodgers’ offense was also culpable in wasting Wood’s performance.The Dodgers managed just five hits in the game, two of them solo home runs by Corey Seager. It was the first multi-homer game of Seager’s career and part of a hot streak that has seen him go 15 for 35 (.429) with three doubles and four home runs in his past nine games.Seager’s second home run was the Dodgers’ only hit after Wood himself led off the fifth inning with a single, and he was their only runner to advance past first base after the fourth inning. Things have been going pretty well recently for Wood who held the Cardinals to just one run (a solo home run by Jeremy Hazelbaker) on three hits, a walk and a hit batter in his six innings.But he had to work out of trouble in the sixth and was nearly pulled then by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.“He was going to yank me,” Wood said of a mound visit after the first two batters had reached base on a walk and a hit batter. “I asked nicely if he would leave me in. … I don’t remember if I said, ‘Please’ or not.“He asked me if was going to get a ground ball and I said, yeah, even though I didn’t know if I was.”Wood got two ground balls to escape damage but he had thrown 92 pitches to that point and Roberts went to his bullpen, sending Louis Coleman out to start the seventh.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
