Coyotes' Conor Timmins, Carter Hutton out several weeks

It’s not like this has any drastic effect on the Coyotes; performance, considering that Arizona is obviously set up for a losing season and hasn’t even registered a single win to this point. But the development of Timmins – who was acquired in the Darcy Kuemper trade this summer –is certainly something to consider.
BEIJING (AP) — A renowned Chinese fashion photographer has apologized for her past work after online critics called it insulting to the Chinese people and fashion house Dior removed one of her photos from a show in Shanghai.
Chen Man acknowledged the criticism of her earlier work, including “Young Pioneers,” a series of images of a young model with backdrops of major landmarks such as China's massive Three Gorges Dam or with an image of the country's first lunar orbiter flying out from under her dress.
The criticism was reported by the state-owned Global Times newspaper, which said that comments on social media had called her work “implicit child pornography and insulting the young pioneers,” the name of a Communist Party-affiliated youth organization.
Golden Knights sign defenseman Ben Hutton to one-year, $750K deal
The Vegas Golden Knights have added a bit of extra defensive depth, signing Ben Hutton to a one-year contract worth $750K. Hutton had attended the very end of Anaheim Ducks training camp on a PTO, but to this point had not carried an NHL contract. He’ll now join the Golden Knights organization on the league-minimum contract. © Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Ben Hutton is heading to Vegas. Hutton, 28, was an interesting case this offseason in terms of his unrestricted free agency.
“I have reflected deeply and blamed myself for my naivety and ignorance at the time. I think that I must still formally apologize to everyone,” Chen wrote this week on her social media account.
“I’m a Chinese person, born and raised, I deeply love my motherland," she wrote. “And I know, deeply, that as an artist, I have a responsibility to the mission to record and spread the Chinese people’s culture.”
She joins numerous Chinese and foreign celebrities, brands and artists who have made public apologies following criticism of their work in state media. Some have been boycotted for refusing to apologize or if the apology is deemed insufficient.
Chen's apology came more than a week after Dior was attacked over the photo at its exhibition in Shanghai, which pictured a model of Asian descent with tan, freckled skin and darkened eyelids holding a Dior purse.
Mega Failure: Game Platform ROBLOX has been offline
for days since October 28th is the world's popular game platform Roblox, which was successfully successfully launched in March, completely offline. Guilt are larger server problems. © Roblox Corp At the moment there is no one. For more than two days, all Roblox services for millions of players and players worldwide are out of service. Roblox had reacted quickly and communicated that the technical team "hard work hard to get the things back to handle".
Critics deemed the photograph contrary to East Asian beauty standards of fair skin and said it perpetuated Western stereotypes of Asian faces, such as slanted eyes.
At least one photo editor has praised her work in the past for creating an aesthetic that was neither aping Western magazines or Japanese and South Korean ones. And in 2019, the Global Times described Chen as China's answer to U.S. photographer Annie Leibovitz, calling her a "shining star” with a unique perspective.
Dior removed the photograph, adding that it was part of an art project and not an advertisement. In a statement on its Chinese social media account, Dior said it “respects the feelings of Chinese people” and “strictly abides by Chinese laws and regulations.”
Other luxury brands have previously been embroiled in controversies in China. In 2018, a Dolce & Gabbana advertisement sparked public outrage after the Asian model in the ad was instructed to eat spaghetti, cannolis and pizza with a pair of chopsticks. The videos were later removed.
NBA Power Rankings 2021: Each team's biggest X-Factors through Week 3
Three weeks have now gone by in the 2021-22 season and as teams approach the 10-game checkpoint, we're learning more about who's who around the league. How does that impact this week's rankings?Three weeks have now gone by in the 2021-22 season and as teams approach the 10-game checkpoint, we're learning more about who's who around the league. While a select few teams have come out of the gate firing on all cylinders, there are some other teams with major aspirations that have stumbled while they work to figure things out.
Chen's social media post said she accepted criticism of her work including that for a certain brand, but didn't specify Dior.
The photograph taken down from the Shanghai exhibit was shot in a similar style to a series of covers Chen did for British fashion magazine i-D that featured 12 young Chinese women from different ethnic minorities. Many of the women did not fit what has become a common definition of beauty in China — some had small eyes and others had freckles.
Ding Yining, a photo editor at Sixth Tone, praised Chen's work in a 2018 article for the state-backed English-language features website.
“From her works, it would seem that Chen prefers female models with narrow, single-lidded eyes and a sense of traditional East Asian elegance,” Ding wrote.
Chen told Sixth Tone that “as a professional visual artist, I believe that I should help more people recognize the face of modern Chinese beauty with greater confidence.”

Broncos hope to keep AFC West jumbled against Chiefs .
The Broncos don't beat the Chiefs. Andy Reid almost never loses coming off a bye. The NFL flexed Denver at Kansas City with those facts staring directly at the league Well, yes. Sunday night's game, which replaces San Francisco at Seattle, is for the AFC West lead, which makes it significant enough. Plus, anytime the NFL and NBC can get Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the rest of the Chiefs in prime time is an opportunity they tend to seize. “It’s like somebody mentioned the other day: Sunday night is THE game,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said this week, “so players get amped for it. I don’t think we’ll have an issue being emotionally ready.
