Champions League: Messi scores hat trick as Barcelona blanks PSV Eindhoven

If the World Cup had given the impression that Lionel Messi was slipping down soccer’s pecking order, the Argentine star made it clear he remains at the top of his game. Messi scored a record eighth Champions League hat trick on Tuesday in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven as Europe’s top club competition got underway. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe, the teenage star widely viewed as the man capable of dethroning Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a near future as the best player in the world, endured a frustrating night in a 3-2 loss with Paris Saint-Germain at Liverpool. The World

Tango in Paris

From my parents’ old house, high above the White Cliffs of Dover, you could look out across the English Channel on sunny days and see the outline of the French coast. I used to imagine that somewhere beyond the horizon there was a French version of me, a bon viveur enjoying better weather, better clothes, better friends: chic, debonair, nonchalant, hanging out in cafés and brasseries, quaffing aperitifs, maybe Champagne, living with elan and panache; living une vie en rose. This alternate life could be glimpsed on family motoring holidays in the Loire Valley or the Dordogne, or cycling through

Alouettes QB Johnny Manziel to replace struggling starter Pipkin

The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel is once again the next man up. The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal’s first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. Pipkin, 23, started the last four games for Montreal but threw four interceptions in a 32-14 loss to the visiting B.C. Lions last Friday. “I think Johnny deserves the opportunity to play this week based on last week,” Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said after practice. Sherman also

POV podcast: Stephanie Labbe plays the long game

Stephanie Labbe approaches soccer like Bobby Fischer approached  chess. She’s thinking many, many moves ahead. So — when the  goal is unprecedented, like getting Canada atop the World Cup podium, Labbe takes an unprecedented approach. She joined a men’s team in the Premiere Development league so she could face an exceptional proving ground between the pipes. No one questioned her skill: she stoned the best they could throw at her. But the league played the gender card: men only. Labbe was ready for that. Plan B? Learn. Adjust. Move on. In the latest podcast, Steph and her old bud Anastasia Bucsis talk about Labbe’s next step,

A North Dakota golf course is dropping burgers from a drone

These drones can fly themselves

A golf course in a part of North Dakota locals call “Sili-drone Valley” believes it has a solution to declining membership at courses nationwide: Drone deliveries.

Beginning Sept. 15, players at King’s Walk Golf Course in Grand Forks, North Dakota, will be able to have refreshments delivered to them by drone for just $3.

This being 2018, they’ll order refreshments via an app, and watch as the drone lowers their snack to them on a rope about 10 minutes later.

Like many golf courses, an employee roams the area in a beverage cart. But on busy days, players might wait as long as an hour before having the chance to buy something. Yes, they can duck into the restaurant positioned midway through the 18 holes, but the course and its partners say that’s a bit much to ask in today’s age of instant gratification.

“Wherever you are, you should be able to get what you want within a few minutes,” Yariv Bash, CEO of FlyTrex, the Israeil drone logistics startup operating the service, told CNNMoney. “Why wait?”

FlyTrex has already made hundreds of automated food deliveries in Iceland this year, and wants to expand. It considers golf courses a natural market, and the added convenience could help reinvigorate a sector that’s seen the number of 18-hole US courses decline 7% since 2007.

FlyTrex found a willing partner in Grand Forks, a hotbed of drone activity. The local Air Force base focuses on drone missions, and the University of North Dakota was the first university with an undergraduate drone degree. Keith Lund, president and CEO of Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corporation, calls the area “Sili-drone Valley.” Since 2008 one of his employees has been focused entirely on developing local drone businesses.

Drone delivery remains a rarity in the United States. Regulations generally restrict flying over people, and require operators to keep their aircraft within sight. That makes delivery services impractical in most situations. And automated drones must be monitored by a human, which make the services expensive to operate.

Golf courses make it a bit easier, though. The tend to have wide open spaces, few people, and clear sightlines along the links.

King’s Walk plans to start with a six-week trial run with a single drone making deliveries to a single location. If things go well — and it receive an FAA permit to fly over people — the course expects to add delivery points throughout the course.

03 golf course drone

Bill Palmiscno, executive director of the Grand Forks Park District, which operates the course, can foresee replacing one of the course’s beverage carts if the drone tests succeed.

Players have had varying reactions to the drone, which weighs about 33 pounds, makes a steady buzzing sound and flies at 30 mph.

“”The young golfers think it’s great. We’ve had people already call and ask — when’s the drone flying?” Palmiscno told CNNMoney. “The old members kind of think, ‘oh you’re wasting your money.’ “

He’s explained to them how much cheaper a drone is when compared to the price of a beverage cart.

Palmiscno has also heard from the neighboring softball complex, whose organizers are open to drone deliveries from his course’s restaurant. Palmiscno envisions athletes sitting around after a game, drinking beer, and having food dropped from a drone.

To prevent being hit by wayward balls, the drone flies at between 200 and 300 feet above the ground. It descends to 45 feet above the ground when lowering a delivery.

“If it goes well, this could be great,” Palmiscno said.
