Nah, lain cerita dengan apa yang dilakukan oleh sekelompok pengemudi bus di Okayama, Jepang. Alih-alih menyelesaikan masalahnya dengan musyawarah, mereka justru tetap ‘narik’ tapi tidak memungut biaya perjalanan kepada para penumpangnya. Nah lho!Baca Juga: Dari Jepang Hingga Bandung Tawarkan Sensasi Makan di Atas BusSeperti yang dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman theguardian.com, aksi ini mereka lakukan atas dasar ‘perselisihan’ antar perusahaan bus lain yang menawarkan tarif perjalanan yang lebih murah. Ketika tuntutan mereka terkait peningkatan jaminan pekerjaan kepada pihak Ryobi Bus Company selaku operator tidak dipenuhi, sejumlah pengemudi bus lalu melancarkan aksi yang merugikan perusahaan tersebut. Kejadian ini sendiri terjadi sekitar awal Mei 2018 kemarin. Aksi ini tergolong unik karena biasanya penyampaian aspirasi pihak yang dirugikan selalu diidentikan dengan tindakan anarkis. Para pengemudi ini mengambil inisiatif untuk menutupi mesin pembayaran di dalam bus dengan menggunakan kain putih dan sama sekali tidak menarik ongkos dari para penumpang.Sebelumnya, kejadian hampir serupa juga pernah menimpa salah satu perusahaan jasa transportasi bus di Australia, tepatnya di Sydney dan Brisbane pada akhir tahun lalu. Dilatarbelakangi hal yang berbeda, para pengemudi di Benua Kangguru ini pun memberlakukan ‘hari perjalanan gratis’ kepada setiap penumpangnya.Sudah barang tentu, aksi para pengemudi bus ini menuai banyak respon dari netizen – namun kebanyakan dari mereka malah menyayangkan aksi unik ini.“Sebenarnya ini tidak terlalu baik untuk para pengemudi. Itu sama saja dengan bekerja tanpa digaji,”“Menurut saya, mogok kerja akan memberikan tekanan lebih kepada pihak perusahaan,”Baca Juga: Gunakan Ponsel Saat Bertugas, Masinis di Jepang Diganjar Sanksi“Saya suka cara mereka, dimana para pengemudi ini mencoba sesuatu yang baru untuk memenuhi permintaan mereka terhadap perusahaan,”Ya, tiga contoh komentar netizen di atas mewakili keseluruhannya, dimana masing-masing dari netizen punya pandangannya sendiri terhadap aksi berkendara tanpa biaya. Mungkin kalau aksi serupa terjadi di Indonesia, para penumpang akan berharap kejadian ini terjadi setiap hari ya!
Yet another potential franchise quarterback for the Cleveland Browns is no longer available as Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting the New England Patriots have traded backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers.The talk all day has been about how badly the Cleveland Browns whiffed on not drafting two stud quarterbacks that both fell into their lap. Those two quarterbacks being Deshaun Watson (Houston) and Carson Wentz (Philadelphia) who have both been impressive since coming into the league. Wentz in 2016 and Watson in 2017.The pair of young signal callers have been arguably the most consistent and effective quarterbacks in the NFL thus far this season. The Browns front office is under a lot of heat for passing them up. Now, things have gotten even worse for those who were holding out hope that the Browns would find a way to use one of their 5 picks in the first 60 next season (2 first round, 3 second round) to trade for New England’s Jimmy Garoppolo.The backup to Tom Brady has now been dealt to the other winless franchise, the San Francisco 49ers for a second round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. To think the Browns could have had him by giving up one of their own 3 second round picks, and passed on it, is simply inexcusable, but what we’ve come to expect from this front office.In three starts last season for the suspended Tom Brady, Garoppolo shined. He tossed 4 touchdowns with 0 interceptions while completing 68.3 percent of his passes. Far better numbers then any Cleveland Browns quarterback during any 3 game stretch the past two seasons. To make room for Garoppolo, the 49ers will be releasing former Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer.The beat rolls on…… Related Topics Vince McKee

OXFORD — Ole Miss cornerback Tee Shepard’s status is uncertain.Ole Miss Spirit reported Monday night that Shepard was considering leaving the team, adding “it’s not 100 percent, but it looks like he will leave.” The site also reported Tuesday afternoon that the junior would not be leaving the Rebels.Shepard wasn’t on the field Tuesday during the portion of practice open to media— about the first 40 minutes, which is largely filled with drills — and Rebels defensive coordinator Dave Wommack declined comment Tuesday evening on Shepard’s status, saying he’d let Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze address Shepard’s status in Freeze’s media availability Wednesday evening.Shepard appeared in five games this season, collecting two tackles and one pass breakup. He signed with the Rebels last year out of Holmes Community College in Goodman but tore a toe tendon that forced him to miss the 2014 season.If Shepard decides to leave the team, Carlos Davis, Kailo Moore and Cameron Ordway, who the Rebels were hoping to redshirt this season, may receive more playing time.Also missing from the open period of practice were offensive linemen Justin Bell, Robert Conyers and Javon Patterson. Linebacker C.J. Johnson also underwent left knee surgery Tuesday and is expected to miss four to six weeks.Ole Miss junior cornerback Tee Shepard’s status is uncertain.Contact Daniel Paulling at firstname.lastname@example.org.

COLUMBIA – Dawn Staley competed against a good friend on Sunday.South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley coaches against Notre Dame during an NCAA Final Four tournament semifinal game, Sunday, April 5, 2015, in Tampa, Fla.Staley’s former Virginia teammate Wendy Palmer brought her UNC Greensboro team to Columbia in an attempt to test itself against one of the best collegiate teams in the country.Despite the coaches’ friendship, Staley and second ranked South Carolina dismantled UNC Greensboro 92-44 in front of 13,607 at the Colonial Life Arena.“I respect Dawn to the utmost,” said Palmer. “She is the reason, along with (former Cavalier teammate and Clemson coach) Audra Smith and Tammie Reiss, are the reason I decided to go to Virginia.“I thought it was good for my kids to get this opportunity.”The Gamecocks inside performers scored 50 points, grabbed 31 rebounds and blocked seven shots in helping Carolina improve to 2-0.A’ja Wilson led the way with 19 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks, while Sarah Imovbioh added 14 points, 11 rebounds and two steals.“That’s something we focused on,” said Wilson. “They had some undersized posts so we just sort of used our length and used our height advantage to shoot over them and score easy baskets.”The ability to dominate inside allowed the Gamecocks hand out 25 assists with the guard trio of Tiffany Mitchell, Khadijah Sessions and Tina Roy combining for 15.Despite the lopsided win that comes on the heels of a victory over sixth ranked Ohio State on Friday, Staley sees places her team needs to improve.“I think we need to address the fact that we’re not as strong defensively as I would like them to be,” said Staley. “From an offensive standpoint, I would [like] for us to be a little more fluid in what we’re doing.”Despite Staley’s defensive concerns, the Gamecocks held UNCG to 25.8 percent field goal shooting, while making 52.2 percent of their attempts.One player Staley has been impressed with is Imovbioh, who came to the USC program for a fifth year after graduating from Virginia.“I’m extremely pleased with Sarah,” said Staley. “She is the consummate team player. She is a sacrificer. She does all the blue collar work that some of our other post players aren’t doing.“She just wants to win. She just wants to contribute. She is great to have on the team, great to coach. She wants to get better and I’m glad she chose us to finish her career with.”The Gamecocks travel to Clemson for a game against the Tigers, Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Jervey Gymnasium.
