Report: Atalanta 2 Juventus 2

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo came off the bench to rescue a point for 10-man Juventus as they drew 2-2 with Atalanta to preserve their unbeaten run in Serie A.Massimiliano Allegri rested Ronaldo for Wednesday’s clash, but was forced to call on his star man when Duvan Zapata headed the hosts in front in the 56th minute.Berat Djimsiti’s own goal had put Juve ahead early on, but Atalanta drew level through Zapata’s 24th-minute strike, with Rodrigo Bentancur’s dismissal making matters worse for Juve.

But Allegri’s decision to bring on Ronaldo paid off when he nodded in from close range, with Leonardo Bonucci having a stoppage-time goal disallowed for offside as Juve had to settle for a share of the spoils.78′ GOALLLLLL!!!!!!!! @Cristiano EQUALISES FROM THE CORNER!!!!!!!!! #AtalantaJuve [2-2] #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/fUVeXgA0Tv— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) December 26, 2018Ronaldo’s absence was not felt when Juve went in front inside two minutes – Djimisti’s wild swing sending Alex Sandro’s deflected cross into the back of Atalanta’s net.Bentancur’s excellent strike from 20 yards would have doubled Juve’s tally three minutes later, if not for Etrit Berisha’s touch taking the ball onto the crossbar.Atalanta rallied, though, and after Giorgio Chiellini had spared them by heading wide at the other end, Zapata drilled across Wojciech Szczesny to haul the hosts level.Having earlier picked up an early booking for a foul on Josip Ilicic, Bentancur handed Atalanta the advantage eight minutes into the second half when he lunged in on Timothy Castagne.And Atalanta made Juve pay, Zapata heading in from three yards out after the visitors failed to clear Alejandro Gomez’s corner.Allegri had little choice but to introduce Ronaldo to the action and the 33-year-old stepped up with 12 minutes remaining to spare his side’s blushes by heading in from Mario Mandzukic’s flick-on.Bonucci thought he had wrapped up all three points in injury time when he nudged home from a free-kick, but his goal was correctly ruled out. What does it mean? Juve’s slip up hands Napoli hopeJuve would have matched their best points total after 20 games of a Serie A season with a win, but their draw has perhaps given Napoli hope, with the second-placed side able to move within six points of the leaders should they beat Inter.Zapata’s December delight continuesThe striker had scored just one Serie A goal this season heading into December, but Zapata now has eight to his name. He ran Juve’s defence ragged, and while his first-half equaliser was an exceptional display of strength, skill and composure, his second was a typical poacher’s goal.Djimisti, Bentancur have nightmares after ChristmasOne of four changes from Gian Piero Gasperini, Djimisti made a torrid start with a dreadful own goal. His embarrassment was at least eased though by Bentancur’s rash challenge to receive a second booking.Key Opta Facts- Juventus are unbeaten in Serie A away games in 2018.- Prior to this game, the last time Juventus conceded two goals in a Serie A game was on matchday one against Chievo.- Duvan Zapata has scored eight goals with his last eight shots on target.- Zapata has scored in his last three Serie A home games against Juventus, with Udinese, Sampdoria and Atalanta.- For the first time, Zapata has scored in five Serie A games in a row.What’s next?Juve will look to bring 2018 to a close with a win when they host Sampdoria in an early kick-off on Saturday, while Atalanta visit Sassuolo. read morelast_img read more

Supreme Court on Net Neutrality Review Not Happening

Text Message as Information Service: What It Means Martha Buyer February 04, 2019 Opponents aren’t taking the FCC’s recent decision lightly. Net Neutrality, the Midterms… & California, Too! Martha Buyer October 03, 2018 The time is now to consider how your representative feels about Net neutrality and use that information to vote accordingly. us-supreme-court-building-2225766__340.jpg SHAKEN/STIR Makes Its Grand Entrance Joyce Osenbaugh April 10, 2019 It’s been a long time coming, but we still have a long way to go in combating robocalls. Since the earliest days following the D.C. Circuit’s decision to uphold the FCC’s 2015 Net neutrality rules, seven separate court cases have been appealed to the Supreme Court. Last Monday, Nov. 5, the court, by a 4-3 majority (more on that in a few paragraphs), decided NOT to hear any of those appeals on the rules invalidated by the Republican-controlled FCC. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be more attempts in the future, but for now, all’s quiet on the Supreme Court front.As has been presented in this space many times, the 2015 regulations, put in place during the Obama Administration, prevented broadband providers from blocking websites, throttling traffic, or charging for higher-quality service or content. Most importantly, particularly to the underserved, these regulations, which were validated by the D.C. Circuit in 2016, allowed the federal government to regulate high-speed Internet delivery like a utility by regulating it as a telecommunications service and not an information service. In the deregulated environment championed by the current administration and its appointees, the FCC has abandoned these rules in favor of a market-based regulatory approach that has allowed Internet service providers (ISPs) to charge more, provide less, and be less than forthright (and I’m being kind) about the performance of their specific service offerings and the reliability and costs of those offerings. The Net neutrality regulations offered consumers some protections and assurances that their individual and collective Internet access would not be throttled, blocked, or prioritized in the name of increased ISP income.In late 2017, to the disgust/disappointment of most Americans, the FCC issued its poorly named “Restoring Internet Freedom Order,” which essentially invalidated Net neutrality as it had existed since 2015. Why, since the rules had been abandoned, should the 2016 decision that confirmed those rules be considered at the Supreme Court?The reason is this: because it’s very, very likely that with a Democratic majority in the House come January 2019 and the popularity of Net neutrality guarantees of equity, that the Obama-era rules may be restored in one way or another. If the Supreme Court had opted to consider the 2016 rules jettisoned last year, particularly with its conservative majority, the position of those who support Net neutrality would likely have been weakened as the light regulatory hand that the 2017 rules imposed would have had the tacit blessing of the court. This would not have been an impossible burden to overcome, but a Supreme Court decision overruling the D.C. Circuit in this matter would have created a very high barrier.However, this session, when the Supreme Court justices considered weighing in on the Net neutrality 2015 Obama-era rules, two of its conservative justices recused themselves because of prior history with the case at lower courts. As such, with only seven justices able to vote on hearing the case, the remaining majority (Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan) voted against doing so, thus effectively supporting the Net neutrality rules. Essentially what this means is that the 2015 Net neutrality rules remain good law, despite the fact that they are currently (this being a keyword) moot due to the current administrative agency’s decision making.Further, since the 2018 rules are currently under legal challenges of their own, the D.C. Circuit’s 2016 decision and validation of the 2015 rules creates lasting legal precedent. This could be extremely helpful in re-establishing true, enforceable provisions of Net neutrality, which a majority of Americans (both Republicans and Democrats) support, as shown in public opinion polling.As a final note, while this may not be the first issue that the new Congress takes up in January, I expect that it will be part of the House agenda in the early part of the year.
