- Kyle Shanahan: 49ers not trying to trade Carlos Hyde
By Eric Branch - Sunday Oct 15, 2017
LANDOVER, Md. — It doesn’t sound as if running back Carlos Hyde is leaving the 49ers. At least not this season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the chatter that the 49ers were looking to trade Hyde, who is in the final year of his contract, wasn’t accurate after a 26-24 loss to Washington on Sunday. “Absolutely 100 percent false,” Shanahan said. “There’s nothing true about that.” On Saturday, Denver radio host Benjamin Allbright said the 49ers had “received and made calls” about Hyde. It followed an overtime loss to the Colts in which undrafted rookie running back Matt Breida had more snaps than Hyde and was more effective.
- Free day brings out the sailor in visitors to SF’s Hyde St. Pier
By Steve Rubenstein - Friday Aug 25, 2017
It was a great day to look at old ships in San Francisco, especially because you didn’t have to pay $10 to do it. On Friday, walking on the vintage vessels at the Hyde Street Pier cost absolutely nothing. The National Park Service, in honor of its birthday, waived all entrance fees at the 124 parks that ask visitors to pony up. Hardly anyone knew the Park Service was having its 101st birthday, which made the $10 bonanza a nice thing. It was also free to visit places like Muir Woods, Yosemite and Yellowstone, but none of those places comes with a tall ship like the C.A. Thayer, which a lot of people were climbing on and grabbing the ropes of.
- Nearly 2 tons of seized ivory to be crushed in Central Park
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.
