9/3 CBS2 Thursday Morning Weather Headlines

By Giorgio Panetta
CBS2 Chief Meteorologist/Weather Producer

Good morning!

Another 90-plus degree day is in store for us all. We will have mild platform this morning to launch from, so expect some mid-90s possible for some communities inland.

Now, the only caveat to our forecast would be the risk for a few storms. Most of the activity WILL remain north of the metro NYC area, but we cannot rule all of the activity out.

The risk rolls on through early Friday morning with a backdoor trough continuing the wet weather chances.

Tonight’s low: 76°. Friday’s cooler high temp: 82°!

Manchester United Transfer News: Gareth Bale Hopes Crushed by David De Gea Saga

The fallout from the failed transfer of David De Gea from Manchester United to Real Madrid continues to spread, as it now appears the ongoing row between both clubs means Los Blancos will not be dealing with the Red Devils in the future, ruling out a possible move for star forward Gareth Bale.

That’s according to the Daily Star‘s Jeremy Cross, who shared comments from a senior United source who believes their chances of signing any Real players are over:

“I don’t think they (Real Madrid) will be too keen to do business with us again considering the way this has gone.”

[…] Real president Florentino Perez is understood to have told senior colleagues at the Bernabeu he is finished with United and will not deal with them ever again.

Perez has no intention of selling them Bale and even United accept the most recent feud between two of football’s biggest clubs will ruin their chances of landing the Welsh superstar.

The two clubs have been involved in a public row since the deal for De Gea fell through on Monday, blaming each other because the required paperwork was not sent to La Liga and FIFA in time.

Both clubs related statements regarding the situation, pointing the finger at each other, and as reported by Bleacher Report UK’s Sean Swaby, the feud has dominated national media in the past two days:

Much of the debate has focused on the futures of De Gea and current Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who was supposed to move to Old Trafford in the deal, and which club was at fault for the move falling through. Most pundits, including BBC Sport’s Simon Stone, have tried looking at the situation from both perspectives:

But regardless of where De Gea ends up playing his football―he’s set to become a free agent at the end of the season―it’s becoming clear that the relationship between United and Real has soured tremendously in the span of just two days, and it could have major repercussions down the road.

Both rank among the biggest clubs in the world who chase similar targets on the transfer market and are part of a select group of clubs with the financial means to do business with each other. Just last summer, Angel Di Maria moved from the Bernabeu to Old Trafford in a record £60 million deal, per the Daily ExpressJoe Short.

Apart from obvious local or historic rivals, massive clubs of this level tend to business with each other all the time, and should the bad blood that currently exists between the two continue into the future, the dynamic of the transfer market could change drastically.

Bale is but one example. The Wales international has enjoyed a solid start to the 2015-16 campaign, scoring two goals and adding an assist in two La Liga starts, per WhoScored.com. The 26-year-old is coming off a disappointing season in the Spanish capital, and should he fail to find success again this year, a transfer would become a realistic option.

There are only a handful of clubs in the world that would present a realistic destination, and one has to assume rivals Barcelona are not an option. It now seems the Red Devils could also be removed from the discussion, bringing an end to one of the most talked-about transfer links of the summer.

The De Gea debacle may lead to the birth of a new rivalry of epic proportions in Europe, and as shared by football journalist Liam, fans of the sport have to be begging for a Champions League clash between the two in the near future:

Whether De Gea would still be in goal for United by that time remains to be seen. But a move for Bale seems highly unlikely at this point, and it might take years for the two clubs to repair their relationship to the point where transfer dealings become a possibility once again.

Japan Display CEO hints at strong Apple orders ahead of new iPhone launch

By Ritsuko Ando and Reiji Murai TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan Display Inc Chief Executive Mitsuru Homma on Thursday said the screen maker’s “biggest client”, widely understood to refer to Apple Inc, is increasing orders ahead of the expected launch of a new iPhone this month. Homma said weakness in China’s smartphone market, the world’s biggest, amid that country’s broader economic slowdown did not appear to be affecting Apple’s display orders. Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook last week reassured shareholders about the strength of the Chinese market for iPhones after a slump in China’s stock market and the devaluation of the yuan rattled investors.

Completely paralyzed man voluntarily steps out in robotic exoskeleton

UCLA researchers claim to have provided the means for a person with chronic, complete paralysis enough voluntary control to actively walk with a robotic exoskeleton.

Working with a team of UCLA scientists, a man with protracted and complete paralysis has recovered sufficient voluntary control to take charge of a bionic exoskeleton and take many thousands of steps. Using a non-invasive spinal stimulation system that requires no surgery, this is claimed to be the first time that a person with such a comprehensive disability has been able to actively and voluntarily walk with such a device.

Infento offers transformable transportation for kids as they grow

The reconstructible Infento lets young designers build 19 models of scooters, bikes, trikes, carts, and sledges

Looking to both solve the problem of children quickly outgrowing their rides and give parent and child a fun project to create together, two Dutch inventors dreamed up Infento. The name, inspired by the Latin for “infinite makes,” is a collection of creative ride-ons for ages 0-13. With just a hex key and a couple of hours, an adult and child can make a sledge, a recumbent bike, a trike with a cargo box, and more.

Washington Just Sinks Lower and Lower, with No End in Sight

You think things with the football team in Washington can go no lower. They just can’t. No way in hell.

Then the bar goes lower. You stand there, mouth agape. And then even lower. You stand there, mouth on the floor, holding back the urge to scream like you’ve seen a ghostly spirit. Lower, putting on its wading boots, walking through the muck and slop and the broken dreams, cutting like glass. You say: Can’t go lower than that.     

Then the team goes so low, it goes subterranean.

There was the time the team sued a 72-year-old grandma over tickets. Damn. Sued Grammy. Over some freaking tickets. Can’t go lower than that.

There was when Dan Snyder became one of the first to charge fans for the privilege of attending training camp. If not the first. Ten bucks to get in. Ten bucks to park. Lower.

There’s of course the constant descent of defending that horribly racist nickname. No, no. Lower.

There’s firing Marty Schottenheimer despite an 8-3 record in his last 11 games. Why? Because it is Washington, and Washington goes low.

Many in the media believe a team official has been used to attack reporters gutlessly and anonymously on message boards. No way the team can go lower than that, right?

Then it does. The team once sold beer in the bathrooms of FedEx Field. Nothing unsanitary about that. The bar is now an inch off the floor, and the team goes lower. The franchise once sued a newspaper for this excellent, truthful article, which lists a lot of the horrendously stupid acts the team has done. It was a remarkable piece of bullying.

The team once banned signs because they were critical of Snyder and a former general manager. That is, until it allowed a sponsor, GEICO, to have its signs in the stadium.

We’re below the surface of the Earth now, we’re so low. There were the insane free-agent pickups, like Jeff George and a decrepit Deion Sanders and Bruce Smith, who by the time he signed in Washington had knees made of aluminum foil. For years and years and years, those busts defined the Dan Snyder era. No way it gets lower than that, then, we creep below the mantle.

Once, in 2005, the team said the only credit card it would take for season tickets was the team’s MasterCard. The team revoked the policy once ticket holders went ballistic.

And lower. Snyder was involved with cutting down federally protected trees so he could have a better view of the Potomac River from his backyard.

And of course, there’s the losing and losing and losing.

Then along came Robert Griffin III, a savior, a ray of hope. So the team ran him until his knee turned to dust. Several years after becoming the face of the franchise, he’s third string, behind two dudes who will be playing in Saskatchewan not long from now.

Those moments are the culmination of low.

But nothing, not even all of that, embodies how low this franchise has sunk like what happened on Wednesday night.

The site Black Sports Online found a series of ugly, distasteful, unfounded tweets about an ESPN reporter tweeted by Jessica McCloughan, the wife of Washington general manager Scot McCloughan. Her accusations—and you can read them elsewhere, but they won’t be reprinted here—were tremendously ugly and petty.

Initially, this could have been written off as something separate from the team’s previous lows. After all, the rantings of a GM’s wife aren’t the fault of the organization.

But then the team denied the whole thing. Said the tweets weren’t from her. Said it was a fake account.

Except it wasn’t. And just a matter of hours later—surprise!—the team admitted it. 

The team blatantly issued a statement that was a lie. About something this low. Because of course it did.

Jessica McCloughan later issued a statement that read:

I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account. The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.

The ugliest part of this is the tired use of a stereotype that women journalists often have to fight, that they sleep with sources to get their information. This doesn’t happen, but that notion is sometimes wielded like a weapon.

No one ever accuses a male insider of this. It’s only the women.

That is what makes this moment so awful. Of all the low moments in this team’s history. Of all the failures. Of it all, this is the lowest. Go ahead and argue others, and you may be right. As someone who once admired this franchise, grew up adoring it and now sees a team falling through the center of the planet, this latest incident is tops—err, bottom—to me.

We have reached a new moment of achievement for this team. Another new low.

But just wait. It’s only a matter of time before it goes lower.

Because it always does.
