Naples: Cagliari secured a smash-and-grab 1-0 win at Napoli thanks to a late goal from substitute Lucas Castro and Fiorentina ended their long winless run against 10-man Sampdoria on Wednesday.Cagliari midfielder Castro headed home from a Nahitan Nandez cross with two minutes remaining to stun the dominant hosts. Napoli controlled large parts of the game but could not find a way past visiting goalkeeper Robin Olsen, and Dries Mertens was denied twice by the woodwork.Things got worse for Carlo Ancelotti’s side when substitute Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off for dissent after the goal.The result left both sides on nine points but Napoli occupy fourth, ahead of fifth-placed Cagliari on goal difference.Fiorentina climbed off the foot of the table with a 2-1 home win over Sampdoria, who consequently dropped to the bottom.German Pezzella put Fiorentina in front before Samp defender Jeison Murillo was sent off for two bookings after the break.Federico Chiesa doubled the hosts’ advantage and Federico Bonazzoli pulled one back for the visitors, but it didn’t stop Vincenzo Montella’s side from ending their 18-match winless run in the league.Struggling SPAL fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to promoted Lecce, who registered their second away win of the season.Bologna winger Nicola Sansone missed a penalty as they drew 0-0 away to Genoa, while Parma had two goals disallowed and a penalty saved before beating Sassuolo 1-0 thanks to a stoppage-time Mehdi Bourabia own goal.
O.J. Simpon sided with President Trump over Colin Kaepernick when it comes to protesting the national anthem. (Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)/Julie Jacobson-Pool/Getty Images/)O.J. Simpson doesn’t think Colin Kaepernick made the best decision when he decided to kneel during the national anthem two NFL seasons ago. While the formerly incarcerated football star initially gave the ex-San Francisco 49er credit for standing up for his beliefs, he admitted he felt Kaep made a “mistake.”“I think Colin made a mistake,” Simpson told Buffalo News Friday, March 16. “I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag.“I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK,” adds Simpson, who generally sides with President Donald Trump on his stance on NFL players protesting. “I don’t disrespect the Bible because of those guys. The flag shouldn’t be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be.”Trump has voiced similar support for the flag and last year he called for players who exercise their first amendment right on the field to be fired.Ahead of Trump’s statement, Kaepernick left the 49ers and became a free agent. He hasn’t been signed by an NFL team ever since.Still, other athletes have protested the anthem too and his movement has spread beyond football and into leagues like the NHL.“When he did it the first time I thought, ‘Well, you took a gamble, and I give you credit,’” Simpson said, reflecting on Kaepernick. “But it was him continuing to do it where he made the biggest mistake.“I’m a firm believer of doing what you think is right, but I would always stand for the flag.”

As part of the agreement, the companies will jointly develop cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure, according to a release. Sony might also use Microsoft Azure for its game and content streaming services. The efforts will also include building better tools for content creators.”Sony has always been a leader in both entertainment and technology, and the collaboration we announced today builds on this history of innovation,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, in a release. “Our partnership brings the power of Azure and Azure AI to Sony to deliver new gaming and entertainment experiences for customers.”Also, the companies will explore working together in the areas of semiconductors and artificial intelligence.Both Sony and Microsoft revealed new details on new gaming consoles in April, which are expected to be released next year. Sony said its next-gen console — likely called the PlayStation 5 — will be AMD-based, support high-end graphics features like ray tracing and 8K output, and switch to high-speed SSD storage. Microsoft followed with the announcement of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, a late-in-life addition to the Xbox One line that finally ditches the optical drive. $520 at HP DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters.

Angela Lang/CNET $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. $999 JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) Sprint Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen.

It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Sarah Tew/CNET Chris Monroe/CNET DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Comments See It I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $999 Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) Read the AirPods review See at Amazon Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) Amazon Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

00:00 /00:45 Gage Skidmore/FlickrU.S. Sen. John Cornyn Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Republican Sen. John Cornyn is facing a growing field of challengers to keep his seat, with the entry of Houston City Councilwoman Amanda Edwards. Other Democratic candidates already in the contest include Air Force veteran M.J. Hegar, former Congressman Chris Bell and Houston activist Sema Hernandez.Cal Jillson with Southern Methodist University says the crowded presidential contest to challenge President Donald Trump is largely driving the interest in the Senate race.“I think that represents the uncertainty of the electoral climate as we move toward 2020,” Jillson said. “Will President Trump’s appeal to racial divisions in the country affect the presidential election and all the Senate elections and House elections going on around the country?”Jillson says at this stage the large number of challengers to Cornyn could generate enthusiasm among the Democratic base in Texas. Brandon Rottinghaus of the University of Houston agrees.“A growing primary field for Democrats is a good problem of their own making,” Rottinghaus told the Texas Standard. “Twenty-eighteen showed that Texas is winnable, it’s flippable, or purple, or it’s a toss-up, depending on how you want to characterize it.”Jillson argues that, at this point, the odds still favor Cornyn winning a fourth term, both because of his advantage in cash-on-hand and his greater name recognition.“M.J. Hegar is out front. Chris Bell won one U.S. House race, lost the governor’s race, lost a race in Houston for local office. Amanda Edwards is a local candidate in Houston who has no name recognition outside the city,” Jillson said.A fifth Democrat, State Senator Royce West of Dallas, is expected to declare his candidacy on Monday.

Netflix is in talks with several US cable companies with a view to making its service available via their platforms.Netflix has already started working with cable companies in Europe, inking a deal with Sweden’s Com Hem to offer its service via the cabler’s Tivo settop box, which launched last week. It has also agreed a similar deal with Liberty Global-owned MSO Virgin Media in the UK.Over the weekend the Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix is discussing partnerships along the same lines with US cable companies including Comcast and Suddenlink.The paper said the talks are at an early stage although Netflix executives have already publicly indicated they are open to working with existing pay TV operators in the US.One potential obstacle to a Netflix-cable deal is the former’s insistence upon partners using its Open Connect technology, which requires operators to allow Netflix to connect servers direct to their networks.The news comes following calls last week from Liberty Media boss John Malone for cable companeis to join forces to create an OTT service that would jointly buy content and provide a rival to Netflix. The MSO’s streaming service could then be bundled with their other video, broadband and telephony products, the cable mogul said.
