Football – SGB Sports Tue, 17 May 2022 19:29:34 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Football – SGB Sports 32 32 ‘Baie-Jolie sur mer’ is out, the Nordic community submits a new name Tue, 17 May 2022 18:30:01 +0000

After an unfavorable reception, a merged community decided to change its proposed new name.

The new entity, made up of Beresford, Nigadoo, Petit-Rocher, Pointe-Verte and surrounding local service districts, will be called Belle-Baie, if the name is approved by the province.

The new new name was chosen after residents spoke out against the original name chosen by the transition committee, Baie-Jolie sur mer, calling it redundant and too long.

Maxime Lejeune, mayor of Pointe-Verte, said the committee had made a mistake in choosing the first name, and that he is satisfied with the one he submitted for the province’s approval.

“We went back to the drawing board,” Lejeune said. “Ninety percent of all comments made were genuinely respectful.”

The name will be used for administrative purposes by the new city council and in tourist advertisements.

But according to the rules of the province, the current addresses will not be changed.

Baie-Belle was one of the leading candidates among the 70 suggestions received by the committee, Lejeune said.

Sharing the proposed name helped the steering committee

Not everyone shares their proposed names, for better or for worse.

Lejeune said the name came out publicly because of a “slip”. The committee was not supposed to reveal his proposed name before the deadline to submit it to the province on May 16, he said. Last week, the name of Balie-Jolie sur mer came out and the response guided the committee to modify the submission before it was too late.

Lejeune said it was a silver lining.

“The slip-up happened, and that name came out and we realized we made a mistake,” he said. “It shows the people of the new entity that we have listened to them and taken their feedback into account for a new name.”

Other communities, like Woodstock, which merges with two surrounding local service districts and parts of four others, keep the cards close to the chest. Mayor Arthur Slipp said he would not reveal the name because the province has not yet approved or rejected it.

Vicky Lutes, spokeswoman for the Department of Local Government and Local Governance Reform, said the province would be “better placed” to share a list of proposed new names in the coming days.

The choice of the new name is a step in the province-mandated merger of municipalities and LSDs, with the goal of reducing municipal entities from 340 to less than 100.

Website launched in name of Mamata Banerjee to tackle BJP digitally – The New Indian Express Mon, 16 May 2022 02:16:00 +0000

Express press service

NEW DELHI: Digital mega plan launched by Trinamool Congress to counter BJP
and propel party matriarch Mamata Banerjee as the sought-after opponent against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the
2024 elections.

Launching a dedicated website and Twitter account in Didi’s name, TMC MP Derek O’Brien said the platforms will be used to break fake news and “empty rhetoric” pushed by the BJP. The platforms titled “India Wants Mamata Di” went live on Saturday.

“We have made it clear that India wants Mamata Banerjee to lead the next federal government. There is no doubt that only she can challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political hegemony in 2024,” a senior TMC official said.

With that, the TMC sounded the poll trumpet projecting Mamata Banerjee as the face of Prime Minister for 2024, albeit numerically. The website describes Mamata Banerjee as the “tigress of Bengal and India”, with many firsts to her credit.

Launching a pan-India digital campaign projecting Mamata Banerjee as the next prime minister, the TMC said it wants every Indian to benefit from good governance through its pro-people policies aimed at holistic development – making her India’s first-ever Bengali Prime Minister in 2024. “The projection of TMC supremo as the face of the Prime Minister on all digital platforms will gradually intensify until the next Lok Sabha elections,” a source said. of the TMC.

Brantford Elementary School drops Ryerson name in favor of pioneering Indigenous nurse Edith Monture Sat, 14 May 2022 10:01:50 +0000

Pioneering Aboriginal nurse and veteran Edith Monture will be the new face of an elementary school in Brantford.

Ryerson Heights Elementary School in West Brant is named after Egerton Ryerson, a 19th-century educator whose views later formed the basis of the residential school system.

On Thursday, the Grand Erie District School Board announced that the school would be renamed Edith Monture Elementary School, the culmination of a months-long process that generated 250 name suggestions and considerable public interest.

“In education, we always look for teachable moments, and this one has been incredibly valuable,” said school principal Doug Ouellette, a member of the name change committee that reduced the number of finalists at 11.

The students then researched the nominees and made presentations to committee members.

“Not only did the students learn more about our local histories, but they also became part of the process around what it means to honor our commitments and responsibilities to reconciliation,” Ouellette said.

The committee ultimately chose to honor Monture, who was born in Ohsweken on the Six Nations of the Grand River territory in 1890 and died just before her 106th birthday in 1996.

Monture was the first female Indigenous registered nurse in Canada, a career that led her to enlist as a volunteer with the United States Army Nurse Corps during the First World War.

Due to her wartime service, she also became the first Aboriginal woman and the first registered band member to be granted the right to vote.

Working as a nurse and midwife on Six Nations until 1955, Monture advocated for better Indigenous health care throughout her life.

The announcement of the school’s new name comes weeks after Ryerson University changed its name to Toronto Metropolitan University to distance the institution from its former namesake. Susan Gibson chair.

“The process has been a learning opportunity to help us all critically examine the past and work for a better way forward.”

The school board said the name change will be fully implemented by the fall, with new signage welcoming the 800 students at Edith Monture Elementary.

]]> The Producer: Marc Brady is the biggest name in Chicago sports TV you don’t know Thu, 12 May 2022 18:36:00 +0000

If you’re a long-time viewer of Chicago sports, you’ve undoubtedly – and probably unknowingly – seen and heard the work of Marc Brady.

He is 30 years oldand year on the game broadcast production side. He produced Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs and White Sox games. He helped introduce viewers to some of the greatest moments in Chicago sports history. He currently produces Bulls games for NBC Sports Chicago.

Yet you never hear his voice. You only hear his name in the end credits.

But that’s not entirely true. Although Brady doesn’t actually talk to you, he communicates with you through advertisers. Call it a ghost talker, if you will.

Cubs fans of a certain age remember revered producer-director Arne Harris. Today, such accolades belong to Brady, whom his colleagues sincerely respect, trust and adore.

“He’s like the Zelig of Chicago sports producers,” Bulls announcer Adam Amin said.

The producer is the boss of the “show”. This is what the producers call the shows. For them, it’s more than a game.

“It’s the original reality TV,” said Brady, 51. “It’s a show. And if it’s done right, it’s a complete presentation.

Brady said the game still lends itself to the type of show he does. If it goes down to the wire, it’s a drama. If it turns into an eruption, that’s something else.

“That’s when it’s time to inform and entertain because it’s a spectacle,” he said. “There is always someone who cares. There are people who have been waiting all day for this game. My job is to take you away from the world you were in. Your world is now here. This is an opportunity for me to present this to you.

There is a distinct difference between the producer and the director, who chooses the footage and the camera angles you see.

“The director is a person now; the producer is a planning person,” Brady said. “The director has to be constantly moving with the action, while I’m looking for my place to enter. I set the tone; he must realize it. And if it works well, it’s a hand-in-hand thing that’s a perfect dance.

Brady grew up in Hazel Crest watching the Cubs on WGN. Harry Caray often made Harris the third stand member with analyst Steve Stone. Brady didn’t understand Harris’ work at the time, but his fascination with television production led him to learn. At Columbia College, he enjoyed creating shows more than being the center of them, and his first job outside of college was as a stage manager at SportsChannel in 1992.

He worked White Sox games with “Hawk” Harrelson and Tom Paciorek and Bulls games with Tom Dore and “Red” Kerr. His job was to be the eyes in the field or on the ground for the production truck, showing the team what to look out for. He passed papers to advertisers, got them talking, and helped them with whatever they needed.

After producing Bulls pregame shows with Norm Van Lier and Steve Kashul, Brady left in 1998 for WGN, where he worked with Harris and became associate producer for Bulls and Cubs games. This job involved working on statistics and charts, which was a dream come true after years of watching the sports pages as a kid, studying numbers whether or not they made sense to him.

He was working on May 6, 1998, when Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood tied the major league record for strikeouts in a game with 20. Harris told Brady to go out in the field and grab Wood for a meeting. The enormity of what had happened hit Brady when he tried to put an IFB in Wood’s ear.

“Both of our hands were shaking so violently from being nervous,” Brady said. “It became my regular role, running around the field and getting players after the big games. I had Sammy Sosa in Detroit when he hit [home run] No. 20 in a month.

Along the way, Brady learned from Harris, whose habit of showing fans’ unique headwear left an impression.

“People came to the game wearing hats for Arne to show them,” Brady said. “You pay for a ticket to get in and worry about whether Arne will show you. He has influenced more lives than you can ever think.

Harris died in 2001 at age 67. Brady became WGN’s Cubs producer in 2008, although he also produces shows about the Blackhawks, Bulls and Sox. As soon as WGN lost every team in 2019, NBC Sports Chicago called Brady, who wasn’t even looking for a job. The network tabbed him for his Bulls games.

It was a smart move considering Brady’s history with the team and the quality of his work, which is tinged with his passion for the job. He writes most of the openings to buzz about games, and he’s the creative force behind the graphics and interstitials that lead to a single-player package.

More importantly, Brady builds relationships with his colleagues that extend off the air. The crew has a group chat with a continuous conversation that can lead anywhere. Basketball is inevitable, and Amin said it makes it easier to prepare for games.

“The best teams I work with, including my football team, are like that,” said Amin, who also works for Fox. “The crews that are constantly communicating are the ones that are in the lockdown phase.”

This is especially important for the producer and voice play-by-play. Brady and Amin constantly talk during games.

“It’s a relationship that you have to make sure you’re okay with,” Brady said. “There’s nothing I can really tell Stacey King that he doesn’t know about basketball.”

Said Amin, “You need to have a producer you trust, who knows the material, and you need someone who keeps us at the table, even faired. Brady sums it all up.

“The broadcast truck must be a well-oiled machine. The driving force behind this must be the producer.

Brady’s truck for the Bulls games includes director Russ Leonard and associate producer Tamra Anderson, both essential to the operation. Brady will switch trucks next month when he briefly replaces Sox producer Chris Withers.

Even in his 30sand year, Brady still enjoys being at games and bringing them to viewers.

“I was a very lucky person and I don’t take anything for granted,” he said. “It has been a joy for me to be allowed into people’s homes, even though most of them don’t even know it.”

Hearing the name of our country was a good feeling: Aishwarya Jadhav Wed, 11 May 2022 02:05:28 +0000 IF TRUST had a face, it could very well be that of Kolhapur tennis player Aishwarya Jadhav. Jadhav, continuing her consistency since the start of the year, said she had regained her confidence and would exploit it.

At the end of April, Jadhav, India’s No. 1 player in the U-14 girls category, graced the Indian jersey and displayed an outstanding performance of skill and courage in the qualifying finals of the World Cup competition. Asia/Oceania Junior Tennis (U14 Girls) 2022, held in New Delhi. Jadhav will now be seen in action with her teammates in the World Group matches, which will be held in August.

“I have evolved a lot as a player and I have become more aware of my inner potential. After our training at the national camp, when the matches of the world junior tennis competition started and each time the referee announced “India advantage” or “India leads by..” it gave me faith that I am representing my country in the arena world.Of course hearing your country name instead of name habit of the player gives you goosebumps, and the determination to give 110% on the courts… I love having that feeling,” the 13-year-old said, beaming from ear to ear .

Armed with an aggressive and fast-paced style of play, Jadhav said working on her mental toughness has now become her greatest armor in her matches. “For the past few years, I was a defensive and quite slow player on the court. Over time, I became the fast and aggressive player that I am now. Tennis is as much a physical game as it is a mental one…”.

What does Sinn Féin mean? English translation of party name Sat, 07 May 2022 10:11:45 +0000

Sinn Féin is an Irish republican political party, but what does its name mean and what are the origins of the party?

Register to our NationalWorld Today newsletter

What does Sinn Féin mean?

In English, its name translates to “(We) Ourselves”.

What is Sinn Féin?

There is an overall leader of Sinn Féin, which operates as a single organization across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Sinn Féin’s current president is Mary Lou McDonald, who was elected in 2018.

Sinn Féin’s current president is Mary Lou McDonald, who was elected in 2018

Before that, Gerry Adams had led the party for over 30 years.

In the 2019 general election, Sinn Féin won 22.8% of the Northern Irish vote, winning seven of Northern Ireland’s 18 seats.

The party currently holds seven seats in the House of Commons. However, Sinn Féin MPs refuse to take their seats as they would have to swear allegiance to the Queen to do so.

In the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont, Sinn Féin also currently holds 27 seats out of a total of 90, with another 105 councilors across Northern Ireland.

In the Republic of Ireland, Sinn Féin won 24.5% of the vote in the 2020 Dáil Éireann elections.

What are the origins of Sinn Féin?

Arthur Griffith helped found the Sinn Féin movement in 1905.

To achieve nationalist goals, he advocated passive resistance, with Irish MPs withdrawing from Westminster and forming a national assembly in Ireland.

He insisted on the need for high protective tariffs to enable Ireland to exploit its internal market, develop its own resources, support itself and stop emigration.

Sinn Féin gained notoriety for its anti-British propaganda and later, in wartime, its opposition to military recruitment.

It was widely held responsible in Britain and Ireland for the Easter Rising, although as an organization it had no part in it.

In the December 1918 general election, Sinn Féin won 73 of Ireland’s 103 seats.

Sinn Féin then formed the Dail government in Dublin in 1919 and declared Ireland an independent republic.

However, his political activities were overshadowed by the military campaign of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) during the Anglo-Irish War (1919–21). It was a campaign that Sinn Féin helped but never effectively controlled.

In the 1970s, Sinn Féin was split over the issue of parliamentary abstention.

One wing of the party urged all elected representatives to take their elected seats and another wing strongly opposed it.

The anti-abstentionists split to form official Sinn Féin, later known as Sinn Féin – The Workers’ Party, then simply as the “Workers’ Party”.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s Sinn Féin shifted from its military focus to becoming more politically active. He won over 100,000 votes in the 1983 general election, with Gerry Adams being elected MP for Belfast West in 1983.

In 1986, the party decided to put an end to its policy of abstentionism in the Irish Dáil of Dublin.

When the Provisional IRA declared a ceasefire in 1994, Sinn Féin was initially allowed to join talks with the British government, but the dismantling of all IRA weapons was a condition to the continued inclusion of the party in the talks, which led to the end of the first. cease fire.

After the Labor Party was elected to government in 1997, peace talks resumed and a new ceasefire was announced.

Multi-party talks with the UK government resulted in the Good Friday Agreement.

This resulted in a permanent ceasefire and a new devolved Northern Irish administration known as the Northern Ireland Assembly.

MC5’s name and legacy redeployed by Wayne Kramer as he kicks off his tour Thu, 05 May 2022 10:04:26 +0000

In 2020, Wayne Kramer found himself in a funk. Frustrated by the Trump presidency, upset by the COVID-19 pandemic, he was grumpy about the American situation.

This is how the Detroit-born guitarist says he turned to “the biggest megaphone” in his arsenal: the MC5.

Half a century after the late Detroit rock band disbanded, Kramer has reignited the MC5 brand as he embarks on a spring tour and album slated for release in October.

“I have concluded that the only way to militantly challenge my own apathy, my own nihilism, my own cynicism is to take direct ethical and creative action and use the most powerful tool I have. I have, which is my imagination and my creativity,” says Kramer. .

Kramer, one of two surviving members of MC5’s original main lineup, will kick off his eight-show series, dubbed the Heavy Lifting Tour, with a show Thursday at Detroit’s El Club – just around the corner from his childhood neighborhood of Clark Park.

He will be joined by vocalist Brad Brooks, bassist Vicki Randle and guitarist Stevie Salas, as well as drummer Winston Watson, who replaces drummer originally named Stephen Perkins. The show will mostly feature vintage MC5 material, with a few new songs added as an “acid test”, says Kramer.

In reviving the MC5 name, Kramer says he is “using this band’s legacy to deliver a message to people today, which MC5 has carried since its inception: we need to take action.”

“You know, we don’t distribute the jams. We do not distribute jams. We eliminate jams. It’s a physical thing,” he says. “And democracy requires participation. The forces we are fighting against, I will call them what they are: fascists.

It’s a brand of rhetoric that dates back to 1968, that tumultuous pivotal year when MC5’s agenda included a one-day performance amid the chaotic scenes outside the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

After: Eminem heads to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, leader of 2022 class of inductees

Sale of tickets at $25: Chris Rock, Ted Nugent, Miranda Lambert Metro Detroit shows

The new project follows Kramer’s MC50 adventure, launched in 2018 with an all-star band to relive the music of the MC5 – including a trio of Halloween week shows in Detroit marking the 50th anniversary of “Kick Out the Jams”.

This debut album, recorded in October 1968 at the Grande Ballroom, was the first of three records by the incendiary quintet with incendiary leftist politics. Combining Detroit muscle with free jazz and R&B influences, the Downriver-born band had a brief but lasting impact before collapsing into a heap of drug addiction and busted finances.

The Five, as they are colloquially known to hometown fans, never achieved the big breakthrough the band had been striving for. Even in 2022, respect can seem elusive: On Wednesday, MC5 again failed to make the winner’s circle when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame unveiled its latest inductees – a botched sixth nomination for the band.

But Kramer knows there’s substance to go with the spirit, and he says this year’s effort aims to pick up where MC5’s 1971 swan song left off.

“(The album) ‘High Time’ held great promise for the future of this iteration of the MC5, which ultimately didn’t have a future,” he says. “We were so poor. We were banned from the radio. We couldn’t get reservations. It’s really hard to keep a band together when there’s no money coming in.

The good news, he says: With age comes improvement, and Kramer is confident he’s able to create art in ways he couldn’t for himself 50 years ago.

“Music is not related to youth,” he says. “Young people carry most of the weight in music, but older people have more money to spend, they have more influence, they know more about how things work. You can become more passionate about music, better at playing guitar, writing songs, arranging, recording, performing, none of these things are related to youth.

What became the new MC5 project originally came to life as a songwriting collaboration with Brooks, a singer and musician from Oakland, California. Kramer has also teamed up with veteran rock producer Bob Ezrin, with whom he had recently spent time in the studio collaborating on Alice Cooper’s “Detroit Stories” album.

As the music took shape, Kramer had his revelation: the album had to be presented in an MC5 context.

“The more we worked on it, the more I absorbed the world around me, the clearer it became that you couldn’t separate the artist from his time and the world he lives in,” says Kramer. “The situation was so serious.”

Harnessing the MC5 name and motto for his latest project was bound to ruffle some feathers, and sure enough, Kramer’s plans received a cold reception in some corners of the Detroit rock world. This is a band, after all, that broke up in 1972 and lost three leaders over the following decades: vocalist Rob Tyner died in 1991, followed by guitarist Fred Smith (1994) and bassist Michael Davis ( 2012). In Detroit, there’s a sense of protection when it comes to the MC5 heritage.

Kramer and drummer Dennis Thompson — who will feature on at least two of the new album’s tracks — are the band’s only surviving originals.

Kramer is aware of the pushback and said he anticipated it. But he insists moving forward was important in the service of the larger cause.

“My feeling is if you don’t want to be criticized, don’t do anything,” he says. “If you’re going to do something, if you’re going to act, then you’re going to be criticized. You just have to accept that it comes with the territory.

He points to the slogan accompanying the tour and the album: “WE ARE ALL MC5”. It’s a message, he says, designed to evoke a sense of unity and inclusiveness in his mission. He cites the range of players involved in new music – Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, William Duvall of Alice in Chains, Tim McIlrath of Rise Against, pop singer Kesha and roots-punk musician Alejandro Escovedo among them.

Beyond his MC5 efforts, Kramer continues his work with Jail Guitar Doors, the nonprofit prison outreach program he co-founded in 2009, including his new initiative for young people – the CAPO Center (Community Arts , Programming and Outreach) – which recently opened in its adopted Los Angeles home.

He also kept busy with the film and television composition work that has become a major activity over the past decade, including his score for the award-winning 2018 Red Wings documentary “The Russian Five.” His current work includes the score for the upcoming documentary “Coldwater Kitchen” — directed by Freep’s Brian Kaufman and former food critic Mark Kurylandchik — and a drama set in 1930s Germany.

Some rock musicians become more conservative as they age; Kramer’s close friend, fellow Detroit guitarist Ted Nugent, is a perfect example. But the MC5 co-founder, who turned 74 last week, says his political sensibility remains unchanged.

“It’s important for me to be aware of the day, to understand why the world is doing what it’s doing today,” he says. ” How did we get there ? Where could we go? It is infinitely fascinating. me and they are eternal.”

Government wins bill allowing athletes to use UConn name in deals Tue, 03 May 2022 06:06:21 +0000

Connecticut lawmakers have passed a bill that would allow state college athletes to use their school’s name and logo in sponsorship deals.

It still needs the signature of Gov. Ned Lamont, whose office said Monday it supports the concept of the legislation but will need to read it before deciding whether to enact it.

UConn had requested the bill, which updates last year’s state law that allows athletes to make money by marketing their name, image and likeness.

As a result of this law, Connecticut athletes – led by UConn women’s basketball star Paige Bueckers – were able to sign deals for products such as clothing lines and sports drinks, but did not been authorized to use the name of the school in these endorsements.

UConn executive associate athletic director Neal Eskin said the current law, which also prohibits athletes from using the UConn logo, mascot or other corporate marks, puts the Huskies at a recruiting disadvantage.

“None of us want to hinder the ability of our exceptional coaches to recruit talented student-athletes to UConn,” he said in March. “In order to compete at the highest level, we must ensure that student-athletes who choose to enroll at the University of Connecticut have the same opportunities as those at schools in other states.”

Connecticut and several other states passed laws last year to allow athletes to earn money on endorsement deals starting July 1. .

The NCAA never found a way to bring the new business model under its umbrella until state laws took effect, leading to different rules in different states.

Other states have made similar changes to what Connecticut did this session — or repealed NIL laws entirely to remove restrictions on athletes making money from their name, image and likeness.

“If I were to advise state legislatures, I would tell them to repeal all state NIL laws,” Blake Lawrence, whose company Opendorse helps schools and athletes navigate the NIL landscape, told the AP. in March. The NCAA has changed its rules and student athletes are being generously compensated and everything the states have put in place is unnecessarily restrictive.

Connecticut’s new bill would also require the UConn Board of Trustees and the Higher Education Board of Trustees to each submit a report to lawmakers by January on the tax impact of student endorsement contracts. athletes, employment activities and the use of their corporate marks.

]]> Bearish bets: 3 high-profile stocks you should consider shorting this week Sun, 01 May 2022 14:30:00 +0000

Each week we identify names that look bearish and may present attractive investment opportunities on the short side.

Using technical analysis of these stocks’ charts and, where available, recent stocks and ratings from TheStreet’s Quant Ratings, we focus on three names.

While we won’t dive into fundamental analysis, we hope this article gives investors interested in falling stocks a good starting point to do some additional research on the names.

DR Horton hurts

DR Horton Inc. (DHI) was recently downgraded to Hold with a C+ rating by TheStreet’s Quant Ratings.

Housing inventories have been a disaster since the start of 2022. No surprise though, as rising interest rates have kept borrowers on the sidelines, waiting for when interest rates stabilize. It could be a while. In the meantime, homebuilders like DR Horton are stuck trying to build up the right amount of inventory.

Earnings are solid, but frankly the charts tell a story that is bearish down the road. This stock is showing a steep downtrend channel of lower highs and lower lows. The cloud is red and the money flow is strongly bearish. No relief here.

Grab some shorts and aim for the mid $50, stop at $77.

Starbucks has stage fright

Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) was recently downgraded to Hold with a C+ rating by TheStreet’s Quant Ratings.

Even the return of the former CEO can’t help Starbucks pull itself together. The stock has been swirling in a downtrend for months, with lower highs and lower lows. Money flow is weak and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) has just crossed a bearish signal.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is negative and shows a steep downward slope. This tells us that other downsides are likely.

Target the mid-$60s, but stop at $86, which is quite aggressive. This stock should eventually move towards the target.

Boston beer goes flat

Boston Beer Co. (SAM) was recently downgraded to Sell with a D+ rating by TheStreet’s Quant Ratings.

The brewer behind the Samuel Adams brand is showing a miserable downtrend with high volume, poor price action and a bearish MACD. The RSI is in a strong downtrend and the recent contact of the 20-day moving average and the downtrend line has reversed sharply. This tells us that the price is being rejected at every dip, with lower highs and lower lows.

It’s hard to believe this stock was at $550 just five months ago, but it looks like there’s more downside to be had. Target the $300 area, put a stock at $395.
