For those who are really into Peacock’s version, take comfort knowing there is potential for more. I think it’ll successfully lead into a second season. I hope they do. Wiener further says that the second season could, maybe, take cues in Huxley’s actual “sequel” to his novel. In , nearly thirty years after the publication of Brave New World , Huxley published a book-length essay, Brave New World Revisited that reexamined his own work. There were avenues that seemed more dramatically interesting to go at the end.
MLB World Series 2019: Daily schedule, start times, bracket, dates live stream and TV channels
Starting in , the winner of the All-Star Game decided which team would get home-field advantage in the World Series. Before the season, however, the MLB ruled that the exhibition game would no longer determine something as big as home-field advantage in the most important series of the year. Now the team that had the better record during the regular season is the one that gets home-field advantage in the World Series.
Games 1 and 2 are played at the stadium of the team that had the better record during the regular season, and Games 6 and 7 would also be played there if the series goes on that long. In the first ever modern World Series there were other attempts at naming a champion before they found a way to make this work in , the Boston Americans now the Boston Red Sox took on the Pittsburg Pirates now the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Americans won that —five games to three, that is, as the series was a best-of-nine affair at that time.

After 21, kilometres, two continents and 17 countries, the teams embark on the final leg of their epic journey. However, a mammoth 4,km still stands between them and the finish line of Ushuaia, Argentina, the most southerly city in the world. Before leaving the last checkpoint in Mendoza, the racers are rocked by the departure of one team from the race. There is an emotional farewell as they reveal that, despite a valiant effort, they have finally run out of money and their race is over.
Just under nine hours separate the remaining three teams, but budgets are running perilously low, meaning each team has to call on all the skills, ingenuity and strategies developed over the past seven weeks in order to win the race. In a thrilling finale, the lead changes hands throughout as the teams navigate their way down through Patagonia towards Ushuaia.
All teams are constantly juggling the desire to win the race with the need to work. Living hand to mouth, they negotiate tricky connections and sold-out buses and endure hours by the side of roads, desperately trying to hitch rides. As one team benefits from a monumental act of kindness to dig them out of a massive hole and keep them in the race, another eyes a prime opportunity to accelerate to the finish line, while the third gambles everything when it matters most. This gruelling race has pushed them all to their limits both physically and emotionally.
It has taken the travellers to far-flung places — through deserts, mountains and island paradises – giving them the chance to experience incredible adventures, immerse themselves in different cultures, make lasting connections and often be overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers. The racers embarked on personal journeys too, with relationships tested and bonds strengthened. This dramatic and at times unpredictable experience means the travellers complete the race very different people from the ones that started.
Strasburg Shines, Nationals Blow Out Astros, Lead World Series, 2-0
HOUSTON — First came silence from the shocked Houston Astros fans, then some grumbling, and finally a round of sarcastic claps and whistles when the home team finally converted a routine play. The way their team was playing, there was little else to cheer. In a game that was as surprising as it was lopsided, a strong performance from Washington pitcher Stephen Strasburg and an utter collapse by the Astros gave the Nationals a victory in Game 2 of the World Series and stunned the crowd at Minute Maid Park.
The Nationals, playing in their first World Series, grabbed a two-games-to-none lead and are now heading home for the next three games, beginning Friday night at Nationals Park. Washington has history on its side: Only three teams have lost the first two games of the World Series at home and gone on to win the title — the Kansas City Royals, the Mets and the Yankees. For the Astros, who won the World Series in seven games, joining that group will require summoning all of their experience and skill to reverse course immediately.
Applications for series three of the BBC One travel competition are now open, with the closing date set for 31st May BBC Two are inviting.
The wild-card Nationals and the win Astros took the World Series to the max. He was just one of the many top-flight starting pitchers who threw in this Fall Classic.

World Series: Nationals Stun Astros in Game 2 to Seize Control
Famously held out of the postseason seven years ago, Strasburg delivered on the biggest stage of all Wednesday night. The right-hander outdueled fellow ace Justin Verlander, overcoming a shaky start to give the Washington Nationals a win over the Houston Astros and a commanding lead in the World Series. Kurt Suzuki hit a tiebreaking homer in what became a messy six-run seventh inning, and the Nationals headed back home to Washington for three games — if needed.

Wednesday, Oct. World Series Game 2: Nationals @ Astros. Time: p.m. ET. TV Channel: FOX. Friday, Oct.
It’s a shame that there are not any highlights of the Chicago Cubs season. The season was filled with some of the greatest old-time baseball players, an exciting playoff race culminating in a dominant pitching performance by the cubs leading them to their 2nd consecutive championship in the World Series against the Detroit Tigers and Ty Cobb.
The Cubs were a very complete club with dominant pitching and a line-up without one stand out superstar hitter, but rather many very good hitters that led to a team that ended up with a record. The Cubs needed every victory that they got as both the New York Giants with pitcher, Christy Mathewson, and Pittsburgh Pirates, led by Honus Wagner, finished just one game behind the Cubs with records.
The pennant race was characterized by back and forth lead changes and one of the most controversial games in major league baseball history on September 23, when an apparant victory by the Giants over the Cubs was suspended due to a play that has since been called “Merkle’s Boner”. Fred Merkle, a 19 year old first baseman failed to touch 2nd base on what would have been a game winning hit by Al Bridwell.
Moose McCormick was on third base with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth and would have scored the final run had Merkle touched second base. So, an apparant Giant victory over the Cubs was ruled a tie game that ultimately would be replayed in a new game scheduled for October 8. Even though the Cubs were fortunate in the overall outcome of this, they still had to earn the NL title by defeating the Giants best pitcher and probably the best pitcher that season, Christy Mathewson.
Mathewson won the pitching Cy Young in with a record, 1.

We went in skeptical, but season 1 of The Witcher on Netflix turned out to be one of our favorite shows of , and Henry Cavill proved to be an excellent Geralt, nailing the softy-with-a-gruff-exterior act and swinging his swords around with convincing panache.
