Time to shut down the United Nations

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion One can only hope that Trump’s greatest accomplishment will be closing the cesspool known as the United Nations. Instead of giving voice to all nations, large all small, they have taken on the task of eliminating Israel. Syria gases innocent citizens, silence — drinks and dinners as usual. Israel bombs a military site — emergency meeting. Please, President Trump, hang a closed sign on the United Nations. Geraldine KrawitzSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

Harvick denies Keselowski in overtime at Michigan

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By Associated Press Television News Kevin Harvick raced to his fifth NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season, outlasting Brad Keselowski in overtime Saturday in the opener of a weekend doubleheader at Michigan International Speedway.Keselowski was denied again in his home state. He’s never won a Cup race at Michigan, but it would have been a tall order to overcome a dominant Harvick on this day. Harvick won for the fourth time at MIS — and three of those victories have been in the last three years.Ford has now won five straight Cup races at Michigan and swept the top two spots Saturday with Harvick and Keselowski. Martin Truex Jr. was third, followed by Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch.Busch remained winless on the year with five races left in the regular season.It was a clean race until the final stage, when several cautions forced Harvick to navigate some tricky restarts. There was even a brief red flag at one point for track cleaning.The race went to overtime after Christopher Bell made contact with Austin Dillon to bring out the final caution.Starting this weekend, NASCAR is incorporating the “choose rule” into the restart procedure for all national series races except those held on road courses and superspeedways. As drivers approach a designated spot, they must commit to the inside or outside lane for the restart.On the final restart, both Harvick and Chase Elliott picked the outside, while Keselowski and Denny Hamlin went inside. Harvick’s No. 4 and Keselowski’s No. 2 raced side by side for a bit, but Harvick had a clear lead out of Turn 4, then held on for another lap to win.Image credits: AP First Published: 9th August, 2020 06:49 IST FOLLOW UScenter_img WATCH US LIVE Last Updated: 9th August, 2020 06:49 IST Harvick Denies Keselowski In Overtime At Michigan Kevin Harvick raced to his fifth NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season, outlasting Brad Keselowski in overtime Saturday in the opener of a weekend doubleheader at Michigan International Speedway LIVE TV COMMENTlast_img read more
