Weaver Set for Minor League Rehab Start on Thursday

Monday, July 27

The Inland Empire 66ers, the Los Angeles Angels’ High-A affiliate, announced Monday that Weaver is set to pitch Thursday against the Bakersfield Blaze. The 32-year-old hasn’t made a start since going on the disabled list last month.

Before suffering a hip injury, Weaver was having the worst season in his 10-year MLB career. In 15 starts, he has gone 4-8 with a 4.75 earned run average and 4.76 FIP, per Baseball-Reference.com.

With Los Angeles only a game up in the American League West heading into Monday night, getting Weaver back to 100 percent might help the team consolidate its position atop the standings.

An Apple logo hangs above the entrance to the Apple store on 5th Avenue in the Manhattan borough of New York CityBy Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some of the biggest U.S. corporate names on Monday offered their support – and billions of dollars in green financing pledges – to buttress the Obama administration's quest for a global agreement on combating climate change. Google, Apple, Goldman Sachs and 10 other well-known companies joined the White House in launching the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, a campaign that the White House said would inject $140 billion in low-carbon investments into the global economy. Massive private sector commitments are seen by participants as essential to getting a global agreement on climate change in Paris in December.

The Results Of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Initial Autopsy Are In

After Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s tragic passing on Sunday, reports surfaced that her death will be investigated as a homicide.

Authorities are saying they suspect foul play in the terrible tragedy, and are continuing to keep their attention on BK’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

In January, the 22-year-old was placed on life support after being found face-down in a bathtub, and remained unresponsive up until she died.

To shed some light on her untimely passing, an autopsy was scheduled for the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston.

The initial results of the procedure were revealed on Monday afternoon, but didn’t provide much insight. The findings didn’t show any significant injuries or underlying cause of death, other than the fact that she suffered irreversible brain damage before being rushed to the hospital almost six months ago.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner‘s office also added that BK didn’t have any sort of medical conditions that played any role in her untimely death.

The office had anticipated that the autopsy might not reveal much about what happened to the aspiring singer, since so much time had passed between January 31 — the night of the incident — and her death.

However, a subpoena has reportedly been issued to collect more information about her passing, and they’ll continue to run more tests to get a better idea of what happened. These tests could take weeks.

Our hearts are with Bobbi Kristina’s loved ones during this tough time.

Nutley To Employee Dogs To Chase Away Geese

NUTLEY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A new plan is in place to chase away the endless number of Canadian Geese who have been flocking in the parks of Nutley, New Jersey.

Nutley is home to 110 acres of municipal park land, manicured lawns, bike trails and picturesque ponds. But as CBS2’s Elise Finch reports, residents say that in the past few years the geese have really taken over.

“I like their beautiful feathers but I don’t want them pooping all around here,” 5-year-old Matthew BeBello said.

Another Nutley resident agreed with the child.

“Their feces is all over, you can’t even have a picnic or anything over here,” David McCabe said.

Nutley officials say the geese droppings are a nuisance and a health hazard. So they’re unleashing the dogs. Specifically, a group of border collies trained to scare the geese away — but not hurt them.

“Hopefully what they’re going to do is  and they’re going to realize that this is not a friendly place to be and they’re going to go somewhere else,” Commissioner of Parks and Public Property Mauro Tucci said. “Now while we want to rid our parks of them we want to do it in a very humane way.”

Experts say because the geese have been living in these Nutley parks for several years they won’t leave quickly, Finch reports. So the dogs will be out chasing them twice a day every day for the next 12 weeks.

“The natural predator in the wild is the Arctic Fox and what they do is get down low and stalk and stare so the border collies actually replicate that,” said ‘Geese Chasers’ Brooke Bello.

“Everything I’ve learned, everything I’ve read about them, you just have to annoy them and I believe the dogs will do that,” General Superintendent of Parks Harry Kirk said.

While some residents have expressed their disapproval of this technique, people CBS2 spoke to were supportive.

“I think it’s a great idea because you can’t even walk over there,” said Clifton resident Barbara Pietruszewski.

Officials and park goers hope the collies will finally make their poop problems go away for good.

“If the dogs are going to be successful in chasing them away, frightening them but not bringing any long lasting harm I think it’s a great idea,” said Nutley Resident Lou DeBello.

In the past, Nutley employees used balloons, cardboard coyote cut outs and even sounds machines to get the geese to leave.

They will pay the geese chasers $1,500 a month for three months to parole the area with border collies.
