Predators claim former first-round pick Luca Sbisa off waivers

  Predators claim former first-round pick Luca Sbisa off waivers The Carolina Hurricanes claimed Anton Forsberg (EDM), the San Jose Sharks claimed Rudolfs Balcers (OTT) and the New Jersey Devils claimed Eric Comrie (WPG) as well.Forsberg, 28, returns to the organization he played for last season, an interesting move given the Hurricanes did not re-sign him in the offseason. The veteran goaltender has spent time with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Chicago Blackhawks as well but has been limited to minor league duty for most of the past two years. In 2019-20 he played three games for the Hurricanes, posting an .897 save percentage. In the minor leagues, he had a .905.

The PGA Tour is heading to California for the second week in a row as the Farmer Insurance Open tees off at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, Calif.

It marks the 17th official event of the 2020-21 PGA Tour, which includes an absurd 50 such tournaments this season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Nothing wrong with a little extra golf, right?

This week will see the return of 2020 Farmers Insurance winner Marc Leishman as he tries to win the event for the second time in his career. If he achieves that feat, he would be the first golfer since Tiger Woods (2005-08) to earn consecutive tournament victories. Speaking of which: Tiger will not be in attendance at the event — neither will several top-tier golfers — as he recovers from recent back surgery.

A comment. © Photo: dpa Protest: At the end of the year, farmers demonstrated against the butter price cut. This time everything is different: no calves, no currywurst, the Green Week takes place only on the Internet due to the corona pandemic. And the large demonstration of trekkers and demonstrators, which otherwise paralyzes on the occasion of the Messe Berlin Mitte, was much more modest this year.

Canadian Sikhs worry for families in India as farm protests turn violent .
For several days, Karan Singh has been frantically checking the latest news from India where his father and other farmers have been demanding the government repeal new agriculture laws that open more space for private investors. The 25-year-old from Sudbury, Ont., says concern for his father — who farms cotton, wheat and sugar cane in India's northern Punjab state — started in September. That's when Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced three bills that farmers say will reshape agriculture in the region, and Singh's father and friends joined protests.
