NEW YORK — Frustrated fans woke up Monday morning to the reality that things remain the same for the New York Jets.In a word: painful.Adam Gase is still the coach. The offence is still struggling. So is the defence. Special teams, too. But, hey, at least the 0-6 Jets are now “winning” the slow crawl to the No. 1 overall draft pick. Whether that ends up being Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence remains to be seen.One thing's for sure, though: This season has been tough all around.“You can get all caught up in the emotions of this game and the outside noise of the fans, but no one cares more than the guys in the locker room,” guard Greg Van Roten said. “This is my job. I get paid to play football. I love this game and I want to go out there and play a perfect game every week. It's incredibly frustrating when you lose a game."It's even more frustrating when it's not even close because you have a short window to do this as a professional athlete.”Van Roten, a native of Long Island, grew up a Jets fan and said his father Thomas has followed the franchise for nearly 60 years.“As frustrated as the fans are, I understand that, but I'm way more frustrated than you are because this is a year of my playing life that's not going the way that you want it to go,” said Van Roten, in his first season with the Jets. “Dealing with that, you allow yourself to do your job and this is what you get paid to do, so you've got to find a way to stay positive, block out that noise and just play a good game the next time you get to go out there."Because, eventually, there's not going to be a next time.”Van Roten credited the embattled Gase with trying to find different ways to turn things around, from when they've met to how they've communicated and who has attended meetings. He said the coach showed about 30 plays Monday of Sunday's 24-0 loss at Miami to understand what the players were thinking in those situations and how they can all improve moving forward.“You don't want to show up on a Monday and it's the same as last week and the same as the week before that when you're not being successful on Sundays,” Van Roten said. “He is doing everything he can do to make sure we're all set to go for our next opponent.”WHAT’S WORKINGJoe Douglas' cellphone. With the Jets' season spiraling, the fire sale is officially on.Last week, the general manager tried finding a trade partner to move Le'Veon Bell before ultimately releasing him last Tuesday. After the game Sunday night, Douglas agreed to deal veteran nose tackle Steve McLendon to Tampa Bay. The Jets also sent a 2023 seventh-rounder to the Buccaneers in exchange for the Buccaneers' sixth-rounder in 2022.Douglas is likely not done, especially with plenty of time before the NFL's trade deadline on Nov. 3.WHAT NEEDS HELPWell, everything. But one key area that has been brutal: third-down efficiency. The Jets were an awful 2 of 17 in those situations at Miami, a major reason for their inability to get on the scoreboard.“Hey, man, it was a tough game and the only thing you can do in these situations is just hold your head up high and keep on fighting and fighting and fighting,” quarterback Joe Flacco said. “It was ugly."But it hasn't just been that game. New York is last in the NFL with a 30.23% conversion rate on third downs.STOCK UPMarcus Maye. The safety provided one of the season's lone highlights when he intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick by pinning the ball against his backside while on the ground — The Butt Pick — and then securing it behind his back. It was an athletic play for Maye, who was moved this week to the deep safety role while Bradley McDougald was switched to the strong safety spot.STOCK DOWNFlacco. The 35-year-old quarterback hasn't been able to do much in Sam Darnold's place to get anything going on offence. Against the Dolphins, he was 21 of 44 for 186 yards with an interception and two penalties. He also lost 28 yards on one of his three sacks.“I definitely made some mistakes and have got to clean some things up and keep on going,” Flacco said. “But we’re playing in some really tough conditions right now and we’ve just got to keep getting better.”INJUREDIn addition to Darnold and LT Mekhi Becton, LG Alex Lewis has what Gase says is “multiple” shoulder issues and is week to week. ... OL Chuma Edoga has a calf injury. ... S Matthias Farley has a sprained ankle. ... LB Frankie Luvu could miss time with a groin injury.KEY NUMBER0 — The number of points the Jets scored against the AFC East-rival Dolphins. It marked the first time New York was shut out by Miami since losing 14-0 in the AFC championship game in January 1983.NEXT STEPSCould things get worse? Oh, yeah. The Jets' schedule is tough over the next several weeks: home vs. Buffalo, at Kansas City, and at home vs. New England on a Monday night before the bye-week break. For the record, no Jets team has started 0-9. Not even the 1996 squad, which opened 0-8 on its way to a franchise-worst 1-15.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLDennis Waszak Jr., The Associated Press
Purdue coach Jeff Brohm will miss the season opener Saturday against Iowa after testing positive for COVID-19, he confirmed Monday. Younger brother Brian Brohm, the Boilermakers' co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, will handle the game-day decisions and serve as acting head coach against the visiting Hawkeyes. Big Ten rules require Jeff Brohm to remain in isolation for at least 10 days and then would allow him to return if he has been symptom-free for 24 hours.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Clayton Kershaw has pitched in the final game of the season for the Los Angeles Dodgers six of the last seven years. None of those were followed by lifting the World Series trophy.There are his three National League Cy Young Awards, even an MVP during one of his 21-win seasons, and the current streak of eight consecutive NL West titles for the Dodgers.But the 32-year-old ace lefty has a losing record (11-12) in the post-season — and Los Angeles hasn't won a World Series since 1988. That is the same year Kershaw was born in Dallas, where he still lives and not far from where he is about to get another chance to change that for the Dodgers and add a huge missing piece to his otherwise sparkling resume.“I was throwing sim games May and June in Dallas, thinking about, man, are we even going to play a season?" Kershaw said Monday.And now for the third time in four years, Kershaw is set to start Game 1 of the World Series for the Dodgers, who were on the verge of their season ending when he left his NL Championship Series start last week in Arlington, Texas, where the World Series is also being played.California-born Tyler Glasnow, a 27-year-old right-hander who grew up watching the early part of Kershaw's career, starts Tuesday night for the Tampa Bay Rays in their first World Series game since 2008. Glasnow was 5-1 with a 4.08 ERA in 11 starts during the regular season and is 2-1 with a 4.66 ERA in four post-season starts.The World Series opener comes a week after Kershaw was scratched before his scheduled start in Game 2 of the NLCS against Atlanta because of back spasms. He instead started two days later in Game 4, which was tied 1-1 before he left after allowing three hits in a row to start the sixth in what became a six-run inning for the Braves on the way to a 10-2 win and a 3-1 series lead.But the Dodgers then won three consecutive games when facing elimination — only the second time in their storied history they did that. Kershaw was in the bullpen stretching at times during Game 7 on Sunday night, but never entered the clinching 4-3 victory.Before these unusual playoffs after the pandemic-shortened regular season, with the Dodgers already playing the Division Series and NLCS there, Kershaw hadn’t pitched professionally in Arlington. His rotation turns never matched up with trips to Texas, not at the old stadium across the street where he used to watch the Texas Rangers and one of his favourite players, Will Clark — the reason he wears No. 22 — or for the Dodgers' series at the new $1.2 billion Globe Life Field at the end of August.Kershaw was 6-2 with a 2.16 ERA in 10 starts during the regular season, then had 13 strikeouts in eight scoreless innings to win the clinching Game 2 against Milwaukee in the first round. He went six innings to beat San Diego during the NLDS in his first Arlington start.“He's so competitive," first-year teammate and 2018 AL MVP Mookie Betts said. “He does everything right.”But as good as Kershaw has been in going 175-76 with a 2.43 ERA in the regular season over his 13 seasons, the eight-time All-Star has had plenty of disappointing finishes in the post-season, when his ERA is nearly two runs higher at 4.31.— In relief during Game 5 of the NL Division Series at home against Washington last October, Kershaw allowed back-to-back homers to start the eighth that tied the deciding game before the eventual World Series champion Nationals won on a grand slam in the 10th.— There was a scoreless inning in relief to close out Game 7 of the NLCS in 2018 before he lost both his starts against Boston in that World Series — Game 1 and the deciding Game 5.— His World Series debut in 2017 included 11 strikeouts while allowing one run over seven innings to win Game 1 at home against the Astros. But after LA took an early 4-0 lead in Game 5 at Houston, Kershaw gave up six runs and left after 4 2/3 innings — whether he tipped his pitches, or the Astros benefited from their illegal sign-stealing scheme that was revealed years later. The Astros won that game 13-12 in 10 innings, and clinched the series in Game 7, when Kershaw pitched four scoreless in relief at Dodger Stadium.— Kershaw was the loser in season-ending games against the Cardinals in the 2013 NLCS and the NLDS the next season. He was 2-0 with a save in his first four appearances during the 2016 post-season before losing the deciding Game 6 of the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs.“Postseason, you have that experience to draw on, just trying to learn from that as best we can,” Kershaw said. “At the same time, every year is different. Every team is different. The Rays are a different team than the Astros and the Red Sox. I’m going to prepare like I always do and be as ready as I can be."For another chance.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsStephen Hawkins, The Associated Press
Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson and 12 city councillors agreed Monday their wages should be frozen for the next two years on recommendation from an independent committee. The salary freeze is part of several changes proposed by the Independent Council Compensation Committee, which reviewed council's salaries, benefits and allowances. Iveson said taking a wage freeze is a symbolic gesture and a practical move to reflect the current reality. "Councillors living within the same kind of constraint that we've asked our employees to take through the zero-per-cent settlements that we've negotiated with many of our labour units," Iveson said. "I think it's important for Edmontonians to know that their elected officials are enduring that same constraint." In 2020, the mayor was paid $206,500 and councillors $116,670. With the economic uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the committee was set up in February and asked to compile recommendations by the end of the year. Phyllis Clark, chair of the five-member committee, said elected officials' salaries and benefits should reflect the impact COVID-19 is having on residents in the near and long term. "We wanted to make sure that the economy and fiscal realities of the city were taken into account," Clark said. "We also wanted to recognize the extraordinary time commitment that councillors put into their jobs, and the broadness and depth of responsibilities of municipal elected officials." Transition pay The committee's recommendations included a higher cap for transition pay. Councillors leaving office should get an allowance equal to three weeks of pay for every year served to a maximum of 39 weeks, the committee recommended, up from the current cap of 36 weeks. Coun. Scott McKeen suggested the transition allowance be higher, to a maximum of 48 weeks. Some former city councillors have had a tough time returning to their previous professions, he noted. "[They've] devoted tremendous amounts of life and lifespan — I would even argue — into this role, I don't think the transitional allowance reflects that enough." Clark agreed the hours and effort councillors commit to the job are massive. "I think people need to recognize that." McKeen, a former news reporter and columnist with the Edmonton Journal, argued that a further increase is fair based on conversations he'd had with former councillors "who left the role — left the role in their 40s and 50s — and struggled to get back to where they were." But council rejected McKeen's motion 9-4, with Sarah Hamilton, Moe Banga and Ben Henderson also voting in support of it.

Winter has come to Prince George earlier than usual, with snow accumulations of up to 15 centimetres in some areas.Environment Canada forecasts flurries in the northern city for most of the week, with nighttime temperatures between -2 C and –13 C and daytime temperatures between 4 C and –4 C.These are much lower than records for the same period in previous years, where the average low temperature was around –1 C and the average high temperature around 8 C."So, we're not getting as much melting [of the snow] happening," Environment Canada's senior meteorologist Carmen Hartt told Carolina De Ryk, the host of CBC's Daybreak North. Hartt says the current snowy weather in Prince George is part of the La Niña global atmospheric phenomenon that is affecting Western Canada, which means winter is colder than in other years.Other parts of B.C.'s northern Interior are also seeing heavy snow this week."It's all due to that Arctic air that's been pushing down, and it is expected to continue to push down this week," she said.The snowy weather is proving to be a boon from Mother Nature for the Prince George Caledonia Nordic Ski Club, which is witnessing a 154 per cent growth in new memberships this season, amid the COVID-19 pandemic."It looks like we're going to enter into an amazing season with all the snow," said the company's general manager Angela LeFebvre. "It's going to be a very busy year."On Monday, the City of Prince George begins to clear snow and ice on roads and sidewalks. Following a heavy snow last Friday, the city also closed some parks and outdoor recreational facilities. Hartt says the cold will start to ease this weekend, but, in Prince George, the snow is unlikely to disappear."Our [climate] normals are getting colder," she said. "Next week, it looks like we might rebound a little bit closer to normal temperatures, but it'll still be cold enough to snow."Subscribe to Daybreak North on CBC Listen or your favourite podcast app, and connect with CBC Northern British Columbia on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Pentagon has raised to $95.8 billion the estimated cost of fielding a new fleet of land-based nuclear missiles to replace the Minuteman 3 arsenal that has operated continuously for 50 years, officials said Monday. The weapons, known as intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs, are intended as part of a near-total replacement of the American nuclear force over the next few decades at a total cost of more than $1.2 trillion. The Trump administration affirmed its commitment to fielding a new generation of ICBMs in a 2018 review of nuclear policy.
