He said Joshua and his team are “getting what they deserve” by being sidelined from his two most high-profile potential opponents.“We had to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best, and look at the outcome,” Wilder said. “No one has talked about Joshua in I don’t know how long and we plan on keeping it that way.”Wilder said he broke his right arm and had surgery about 12 weeks before training camp and threw few right hands during training, which he feels might have affected his accuracy. Co-trainer Jay Deas said limiting the right in camp was a precautionary measure.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ “I’m ready whenever he’s ready,” Wilder said. “I’m ready whenever he’s ready to do it.

A dozen of the nation’s largest newspaper publishers have signed off on a broad partnership with Yahoo Inc., stoking optimism among the newspapers as the industry tries to find its way in an increasingly digital age. The consortium of newspaper publishers includes Denver-based MediaNews Group and 11 other newspaper companies, covering 264 newspapers across 44 states. The participating papers count more than 50 million unique online visitors per month. MediaNews is the nation’s fourth-largest newspaper publisher and owner of the Daily News and of the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, which includes nine daily papers in Southern California. The deal, first announced in November, has been expanded beyond its initial scope of allowing help-wanted advertising to be listed jointly by the newspapers and on Yahoo’s HotJobs service. The number of participating newspaper companies has also grown, increasing from seven publishers to 12. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “The newspaper industry is changing,” Gary Pruitt, chief executive of McClatchy Co., one of the newest members of the consortium, said during a conference call Monday. “This is a big step.” The newspaper industry has seen advertising revenue decline in recent years as readers migrate to the Internet and other media for entertainment and news. The Newspaper Association of America last month reported that overall print advertising at newspapers fell 1.7 percent in 2006, and that total revenue fell 0.3 percent. Online advertising surged by 31.5 percent. With that in mind, the consortium and Yahoo during the next 18 months intend to roll out a variety of revenue-sharing initiatives. The idea is to harness Yahoo’s technology and online presence with the newspapers’ wealth of content and sales teams, opening up new streams of revenue for both sides.

LANCASTER – If Marshall Zaun’s middle school teachers saw him now, they would be shocked. Back then he was more interested in surfing and skateboarding than school, and he recalls being required to write “I will not talk in class” over and over. Today he is the Lancaster School District’s Teacher of the Year. “I would say I was the ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) student before they had the medicine for it or classified it. They called me hyper. Teachers didn’t know how to deal with me,” said Zaun, 38, of Lancaster. With the help of a continuation high school teacher, Zaun found his calling and became an educator. A 15-year teacher in the district, he is now at Endeavour Middle School, where he teaches computer science and visual communications to students who produce a weekly television show about the school. The “Endeavour in a Box” broadcast mixes spots on Teacher Appreciation Week and Hispanic Heritage Month with video footage of soda eruptions when Mentos candy is combined with Diet Coke. He also has coached basketball, cross country, volleyball and soccer at Monte Vista Elementary School, Amargosa Creek Middle School and Endeavour. Zaun said his own school experiences help him connect with students. Principal Bob Porter agrees. “He’s one of those people in education that I wish we had more of. He has an ability to really connect with and relate to kids. I’ve had more compliments from parents and students about his class,” Porter said. “Deep down, he cares deeply about kids,” added Porter, who praised him for humor, energy and enthusiasm. Megan Bistline, 17, was one of Zaun’s students at Amargosa Creek and credits him with helping her focus on her future. “He’s an amazing teacher. He made learning fun. Even students that didn’t have him would be in his classroom,” Bistline said. “He opened my eyes to college.” Zaun taught Barbara Lods’ two children. “I think he’s an unbelievable teacher. He is innovative in getting the kids to be interested in curriculum that would otherwise be humdrum and boring,” Lods said. “He’s very good at getting the higher-end kids to achieve beyond what they think they can and the lower-end kids to excel when they didn’t think they could.” “Everyone goes back to see Mr. Zaun,” Lods added, attesting to his popularity. About three years ago, Zaun created his own MySpace page to respond to students who e-mailed him from their MySpace pages. “I think what I enjoy most is when kids come back later, after they’ve left, to … tell you what’s going on and tell you the influence you’ve had on them. It’s an amazing thing,” Zaun said. “Sometimes you think you don’t reach a kid, and they come back and tell you four or five years later what an impact you had on their life.” The son of a school nurse and a car designer, Zaun entered a regular high school but after a month switched to Silverado Continuation High School in Mission Viejo because of poor attendance – “I was busy surfing” – and because his mother thought it better to try a different route. At Silverado, he fell under the sway of an English teacher who was able to reach him and whom he credits with influencing him to become a teacher. “Her name was Mrs. Africano. At the time she let me run and do things that were of interest to me. She changed my language-arts lessons to focus on music and song lyrics. It peaked my interest. She chose books I was interested in reading,” Zaun said. He graduated on time as the valedictorian. He went to San Diego State University as a liberal-arts student and got a bachelor’s degree with honors. Zaun and his wife, Marla, a second-grade teacher at Desert View School in Lancaster, have two daughters, ages 11 and 4. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 267-5744
Liverpool target Victor Valdes could reunite with his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich.The Spanish goalkeeper is a free agent following the expiry of his contract at Barcelona earlier this summer.He had been set to join Monaco but the Ligue 1 side pulled the plug on the deal due to concerns over his fitness. The 32-year-old suffered anterior cruciate knee ligament damage back in April.Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been linked heavily with Valdes as he bids to provide competition to Belgium international Simon Mignolet, but the former Nou Camp ace could be on his way to Germany instead.Bayern boss Guardiola wants to sign an understudy for Germany ace Manuel Neuer and could now pursue a move for Valdes, who played under him for four seasons at Barcelona. 1 Victor Valdes in action for Barcelona
1 Swansea have made an offer for Tottenham’s Kyle Naughton Tottenham have reportedly accepted a bid from Swansea for right-back Kyle Naughton, which is believed to be around £5m.Naughton has been used as a back up lately and the move to South Wales is likely to see him play the first team football he craves.When rumours of a £5m bid surfaced, Spurs fans seemed delighted with chairman Daniel Levy and that is a rare thing these days.Even though Levy tends to sell the club’s best players whenever someone shows an interest, he has a reputation for always getting the best deals and some supporters were quick to point out Swansea and their manager Garry Monk had been ‘Levyed’.
Dietmar Hamann believes Rafa Benitez is likely to stick with Newcastle United if they are relegated from the Premier League this season.The Spaniard has a break clause in his contract allowing him to leave St James’ Park if the club lose their battle for survival.Having been boss of Real Madrid at the start of the year, dropping into the Championship would be a huge fall for the Champions League-winning boss.But Hamann says the Magpies’ massive potential means his old Liverpool manager is likely to stay on whatever happens this term.“I think Newcastle would love to keep him and I wouldn’t put it past him to stay,” said Hamann, who spent a season at Newcastle in his playing days.“Obviously he needs to weigh up his options but if there is one club he will go into the Championship with it, it will be Newcastle.”“He has seen in the few weeks he has been there that there is a lot of potential up north and it is a fantastic club.”Benitez has still not given up hope of rescuing Newcastle’s Premier League status and Hamann believes he could yet pull off the impossible.They are sitting 18th in the Premier League table with one game left to play and need to beat Tottenham on the final day and hope Sunderland slip up in their final two matches to stay up.“Sunderland still has to get a few points, I expect them to beat Spurs, because they have a few players out suspended, and that may still be enough. Fingers crossed they do stay up.”
The Los Angeles City Council approved $9.25 million in city liability payments Wednesday, including $1.5 million in the controversial 2005 shooting death of a 13-year-old suspected of stealing a car. The settlement with the family of Devin Brown caps a case that had stirred racial and political tensions across South Los Angeles last spring after Los Angeles Police Department officers chased and killed a boy who was driving a stolen Toyota Camry. Officers said they feared for their lives when the car began backing up and Officer Steven Garcia fired into the car, but ensuing inquiries found the shooting violated department policy and the family filed a wrongful death lawsuit. While the council voted 12-2 to approve the settlement, Councilmen Dennis Zine and Greig Smith – both of whom are reserve officers – said they did not believe the city should make the payment. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“This was investigated by the district attorney, by the FBI and by everyone else and they found the officers had acted properly,” Zine said. “It looks to me like we are rewarding the mother, who I think was irresponsible. She let a 13-year-old out late at night, maybe he was drunk. Maybe he was on marijuana. It’s a tragedy any time someone that young loses their life, but I don’t think the city should be responsible,” he said. After the incident, changes were made to department policy on officers firing into moving vehicles and how the LAPD releases information about officer-involved shootings. But Smith echoed Zine’s views. “It looks to me like we are rewarding someone for being a bad mother,” Smith said. “I disagree with what the Police Commission did on this and I think it just set us up for this payment.” Council President Eric Garcetti said the council believed it could face even higher costs if the family’s wrongful death lawsuit went to trial. Brian Dunn, the attorney for Brown’s mother, Evelyn Davis, said he was not surprised at the harsh comments made about his client. “That’s politics talking and precisely what motivated her to file this lawsuit,” Dunn said. “She did all she could as a single mother to protect her son. … I wish they could walk a mile in her shoes before they say something like that.” Dunn said he was not completely satisfied with the settlement but Davis wants to put the issue behind her. The council also approved a $6.25 million payment for an accident involving Arthur Lisechko, who suffered brain damage when his car was struck by an unmarked police car on July 23, 2003. Officials said the money will cover the cost of his care and medical treatment. Another payment of $1.5 million went to the family of Christopher Justin Oliver in connection with an off-duty officer who fired into a car, killing the driver and damaging 10 other cars. email@example.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
