Get Ready for More Football… TSL Games to Air Weekday Evenings on FS1 Starting Tuesday, Oct. 27

FOX Sports Secures Option to Acquire Minority Equity Stake in TSL

Los Angeles – Today, FOX Sports and The Spring League (TSL) announced an extensive, multi-year agreement to televise TSL games beginning Tuesday, Oct. 27. Featuring some of the brightest up-and-coming prospects in the game, TSL football will air weekdays on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings on FS1. As part of the agreement, FOX Sports also secures an option to acquire a minority equity stake in TSL.

TSL’s 2020 fall season features six teams, competing in a 12-game format spanning four weeks from the Alamodome in San Antonio. The season culminates in a championship matchup the week of Monday, Nov. 23, exact date and time to be announced at a later date.

“As we’ve said time and time again, FOX is football. We’re excited to add TSL to our already robust football programming lineup complementing our NFL and college football coverage,” said Mark Silverman, President, National Networks, FOX Sports. “We believe in TSL’s mission as a developmental league and we are excited to grow with them in partnership over the coming years.”

“Given the reduction in roster sizes heading into NFL training camps this year and the cancellation of the CFL season, it was critical to accelerate our League expansion and provide additional development opportunities for players this fall,” said Brian Woods, CEO of The Spring League. “We also wanted to seize the opportunity to play TSL games when America traditionally watches football. Our plan will be to return to the Spring season in 2021.”

TSL enters its fourth season this year as the premier professional football development league in the United States and abroad. Since 2017, TSL has seen almost 100

Mothers are using a label maker to tidy their homes with military precision for spring, eliminating the hassle of rummaging in drawers forever.

The craze began when an Australian woman posted photos of her immaculately organised home in a Facebook group.

She told members she used the $460 ‘Explore Air 2’ Cricut from arts and crafts store Spotlight to label storage boxes and pantry baskets in the new house her family has just moved into in Melbourne.

The machine – which creates labels on everything from cardboard and vinyl to thicker materials like leather – heralds the end to rooting and misplacing belongings because the contents of containers can be clearly displayed on the front.

Photos of her house-wide labelling have drawn delighted responses from fellow mums, with comments including ‘wow this is nice’, ‘goals’ and ‘serious label envy’.

‘Can I borrow you for a weekend to do my house?’ one woman asked.

A second called the organisation ‘next level’ while a third described it as ‘an awesome job’.

Others were inspired to invest in a label maker of their own.

Harvard Cancels Study Abroad Programming for Spring 2021 | News

Harvard’s Office of International Education announced Friday morning that it would cancel study abroad programming for the Spring 2021 semester.

The decision comes in light of continued concerns over student health and safety, persistent travel restrictions, and countries’ evolving entry requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual study abroad programming will not be available as “for-credit options” for Harvard College students, OIE’s notice added.

However, the announcement does not apply to homebound international students enrolled in their local universities.

Camila L. Nardozzi, director of the OIE, called Friday’s decision “excruciatingly disappointing.”

“We’ve been watching the public health situation for months and months, since the start of all of this,” Nardozzi said. “Unfortunately, things worldwide haven’t progressed in the way that I think, globally, we would have hoped they would.”

Nardozzi said her office’s decision came as a result of extensive discussions with Harvard’s Office of Global Support Services, Provost Alan M. Garber ’76, and the Office of Undergraduate Education.

As the OIE monitored the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide, staff largely anticipated the eventual decision to cancel study-abroad programming. That choice “was made for us,” Nardozzi noted.

The announcement came a day after the deadline by which many students had to submit applications for international universities, leaving them frustrated.

Kyle D. O’Connor ’22, who is on a leave of absence for the fall semester, had submitted applications to schools in Scotland, England, and Australia, hoping to study abroad for the spring semester.

“I’ve wanted to study abroad ever since I started. It’s been a dream of mine,” O’Connor said.

For O’Connor, the OIE’s decision came as a surprise. He said he had already solicited letters of recommendation, paid the fees that came with requesting and sending his transcripts, and sat down for hours with OIE staff.

“So, this comes as
