What channel is the NASCAR race on today? What time does the NASCAR race start? These are the questions that plague race fans every Sunday, when each Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race will be on either NBC or NBCSN for the second half of the 2019 season with differing start times.As for Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the Cup Series’ only visit to the track all season, the channel that will broadcast the race is NBCSN. The start time for the race at New Hampshire is 3 p.m. ET. Of course, any mention of favorites for a Cup race needs to include Kyle Busch, who would have earned his fifth win of the season last week had his brother Kurt not beat him to the checkered flag at Kentucky. Like Harvick, Kyle Busch also has three career wins at New Hampshire, tied for the most among active drivers.Among those in Sunday’s field, Busch also has the second highest driver rating at New Hampshire. His Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Denny Hamlin, has the best rating.As for a couple wild-card picks, Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman are interesting contenders at New Hampshire. They have the third and 10th best driver ratings at the track, respectively, and both are hanging around the playoff cut line in the Cup Series points standings. MORE: Watch the New Hampshire race live with fuboTV (7-day trial)The 3 p.m. ET start time is the fourth such start time this season (Texas, Sonoma and Chicagoland were the others). As for the TV channel, the NASCAR Cup Series this weekend is on NBCSN for the third time this year. As part of NBC’s TV deal with NASCAR for the 2019 season, NBC is slated to show seven of the final 20 races of the season, with the other 13 scheduled to be shown on NBCSN.Sunday’s race at New Hampshire, which will consist of three stages (75 laps, 75 laps and 151 laps), is the 21st race on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule (20th when not counting the All-Star Race). There are 17 races left this season, and seven races left before the playoffs.New Hampshire Motor Speedway, an oval that features variable banking at two and seven degrees in the turns and one-degree banking on the straights, is a relatively flat track that is just over a mile in length (1.058). The slower speeds make for a race that resembles more of a short-track event than, say, a race on a one-mile track with high banking like Dover.”Loudon is a Martinsville-like short track,” Kyle Busch said this week. “It’s a little more spread out, but there’s some rooting and gouging going on because it’s a one-lane track and everybody fights for that particular groove.”Below is all the info you need regarding how to watch Sunday’s NASCAR race at New Hampshire.What channel is NASCAR on today?

Harvick won this race last year, his sixth of eight victories in 2018. But the optimism the Stewart-Haas Racing driver carries with him to New England is rooted in more than just recent success.Harvick has 11 career top-five finishes at New Hampshire, tied with Kurt Busch for the most among active drivers. He has finished in the top five in four of the last five races at the track, winning two of the last four. Hence the reason to believe the No. 4 car could end up in victory lane Sunday for the first time this season.MORE: Full 2019 NASCAR Cup Series schedule
This file photo taken on Jul 3, 2019 shows a man working at the under-construction Olympic Aquatic Centre, venue for the swimming, diving and artistic swimming at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, in TokyoTokyo, Japan | AFP | As Tokyo 2020 Olympics preparations enter their final stage, officials are touting the city’s readiness, but activists and workers groups say speedy venue construction has had dangerous consequences.The Olympic opening ceremony is now less than a year away and more than half the new venues being built for the Games are already complete.“We are where we want to be,” Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike confidently told reporters earlier this month.But some argue the city has kept on schedule at the cost of the health and safety of the thousands of workers building the sites.An official tally shows there have been at least two deaths linked to Olympics construction in Tokyo.In 2017, a 23-year-old Olympic stadium worker killed himself after clocking nearly 200 hours of overtime the month before, with the local labour office recognising his suicide as a case of death from overwork, a phenomenon known as “karoshi”.The following year, a man was crushed to death between a crane and scaffolding.Fourteen people have also been injured during construction, according to official records through the end of 2018.But while London had a near perfect construction safety record for the 2012 Games, Tokyo is still doing significantly better than other Olympic hosts.In Rio, at least 11 people were killed during construction for the Games, and in Beijing authorities acknowledged at least six deaths but media reports said more than 10 people were killed.– ‘Too busy’ –Still, workers in Tokyo say they are being squeezed by the twin pressures of labour shortages and a tight schedule.“The work is hard,” said one veteran contractor in his sixties, who works as a sub-subcontractor on a project to build the Olympic Village.He said manpower was about 40 percent short, and the pressure to stay on schedule has led to safety shortcuts.He described days when he and his colleagues continued to work as a crane arm clutching a huge block of concrete moved overhead. They didn’t move even after safety whistles were blown.“We were too busy,” he told AFP on condition of anonymity.“It’s like an assembly line for cars. You have to install the hoods no matter what because those putting in the windshields are waiting next.”They would only move when labour office inspectors came over.“The breaks resulted in us being forced to hurry even more for the rest of the day, only increasing the risks,” he said. Labour unions say the problems with Olympic construction reflect issues in the industry in Japan more broadly, including the widespread use of multiple subcontractors who have little power to protest poor conditions.Six-day work weeks are common, and the ageing country’s labour shortage means workers are stretched thin.One in four workers in Japan’s construction industry is 60 or older, far outstripping the number of workers aged 30 or younger.Overwork is also a problem for workers in other industries, despite government efforts to address excessive hours.– ‘Conditions are really good’ –The conditions have raised concern among labour activists.In May, the Building and Wood Worker’s International union reported “alarming” testimony from 40 workers building the new national stadium and Olympic village.The report warned of “dangerous patterns of overwork” and alleged some workers had been forced to buy their own protective equipment.It said workers described unsafe conditions and that half of those interviewed did not have formal contracts — a situation not illegal in Japan but uncommon in industrialised countries.It also accused employers of creating a “culture of fear” with workers afraid of losing their jobs if they complained or reported problems.Olympic organisers, along with the Tokyo local government and the Japan Sport Council (JSC) in charge of building the new stadium, said they are discussing the report with BWI.JSC vice president Jugo Imaizumi said he thought there had been a “misunderstanding”.“Many people who came back here after working elsewhere say they realised conditions here are really good,” Imaizumi told AFP.Olympics worksites close at night to prevent overwork and employees have Sundays off, he added.Officials also say only a handful of complaints have been submitted to the Tokyo local government and Olympic organising committee.But labour officials said that is merely evidence of workers’ reluctance to speak up because although they can request anonymity they are required to submit their name and phone number when filing a complaint.“Their logic is that since there is no filing of complaints, there is no problem,” a labour union official near Tokyo told AFP.“The system is just to establish an ‘alibi’ for them.”Share on: WhatsApp
Facebook21Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Rebekah Finn for Harlequin ProductionsHarlequin Productions’ 27th season of Real. Live. Theater. is shaping up to be one of the most exciting yet, and they’re inviting you to be a part of it. Unlike a subscription for a movie streaming service, a season subscription at Harlequin Productions supports local artists and businesses, and gives you the chance to come face-to-face with art in real time.One local resident recalls how seeing a Harlequin play ignited a curiosity in him as a teenager:Sitting in the front row, I was inches away from Hamlet as he pondered the meaning of life and death, and it sparked something in me like I had never experienced before. Live theater gets you into the mind of another person and forces you to ask questions like nothing else can.In the 2018 season at Harlequin Productions, you can expect to get into the minds of a whole slew of characters who ponder life’s big questions in vastly different ways:The dog of a famous racecar driver who exemplifies loyalty, adventure, and trust;a transvestite in 1930s Berlin who brings joy to a war-torn world through a love of nostalgic artifacts;two famous 1960s New York architects, and their three grown children discovering their secrets after their deaths;a ruthless and talented 8-year-old actress, and the mother and agent who inspire her;and two Chicago cops whose careers are at stake when a split-second decision blurs the line between racism and political correctness;….just to name a few!Don’t be afraid to sing along during Harlequin Production’s Stardust. Photo courtesy: Harlequin Productions.In addition to the above characters, Harlequin’s 27th season also offers heaps of fun in the form of fantastic singing and dancing. The Magical, Mystical, Midsummer Musical in the summer of 2018 will feature local artist Bruce Whitney in celebration of his 30th year of theatrical composing and musical directing. And of course, a season of Olympia theater would be absolutely incomplete without a Stardust holiday show. This year’s Stardust musical starts in November and will feature a title chosen by participants in the Eclectica! season announcement party that happened on April 1, 2017 (if you weren’t there, you sure missed a fun celebration, so be sure to attend next year).Can you see all these shows without buying a subscription? Sure you can! But you’ll save a lot of money if you sign up for the whole season. For example, general admission tickets bought one at a time can add up to over $270 per person, but subscriptions provide a 25% discount! And you can sign up for a plan of small payments over 10 months to make it even easier.The State Theater, built in 1949, is now home to Harlequin Productions. Photo courtesy Karen Crooks.Subscribing will also give you first pick of seats, free ticket exchange and replacement (not offered to one-time ticket buyers), half-price repeat tickets, and many other benefits. But most important of all, you’ll always see the best shows you’ve never heard of and probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise.Call the Box Office at 360-786-0151 or stop by at 202 4th Ave. E in downtown Olympia to subscribe, and visit www.harlequinproductions.org for more information.
