Urban Meyer Instead of joy Indiana win a relief

A week after giving up 49 points to Indiana, No. 7 Ohio State (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) is scheduled to host Purdue (3-3, 0-2 Big Ten) this weekend. Escaping Bloomington, Ind., after nearly relinquishing OSU’s 18-point lead in the fourth quarter was more of a relief than a joyous celebration, Buckeyes’ first-year coach Urban Meyer said. Meyer addressed the Buckeyes’ great escape from Bloomington and Purdue coach Danny Hope likened OSU’s offense to that of the Wisconsin Badgers during the weekly Big Ten teleconference Tuesday. Meyer addresses the defense, again Earlier this week Meyer indicated that he would be more involved with the team’s defense. The first-year coach provided insight on what exactly he will be doing to improve a unit that has allowed an average of 43.5 points in the last two games. “It’s my job to prepare the team and we are having some struggles on defense,” Meyer said. Though his fingerprints will likely be more prominent on this week’s defensive game plan, Meyer indicated that he is not trying to undermine his coaching staff. “In no way am I going to go in there and change what we do,” Meyer said. “I’m just going to support our staff and support our players.” Meyer said the defense’s performance was “painful to watch” against Indiana and admitted that when the Buckeyes recovered an onside kick late in the game to secure a victory, he had trouble enjoying the moment. “Instead of the joy of victory, it was relief that the whole thing was over,” Meyer said. An improved offensive line The defense might be struggling, but Meyer said that he is very pleased with the team’s running game and, in particular, with the play of the offensive line. Meyer said the unit has come a long way since he took over as OSU’s coach. “The area that’s most improved is our offensive line play,” Meyer said. “They are not playing perfect, but they’re playing much better than they have since our staff’s been here. (I’m) very pleased with that so far.” The offensive line was instrumental in the Buckeye’s 52-49 win against Indiana, as OSU rushed for 353 yards. “The offensive line is giving them a chance,” said Indiana coach Kevin Wilson. “I think (it’s) one of the reasons they are playing at a high level and scoring points.” Badgers like the Buckeyes? This might be the first and only time you hear someone say the Buckeyes’ spread offense is similar to Wisconsin’s smash-mouth style. Both teams would prefer to run than pass, but OSU tends to line up in the shotgun, spread out with multiple receivers, while Wisconsin plays tight, “I-form” football. However, Hope said that there is a glaring similarity between the two offenses. “Wisconsin is a physical football team with great backs and Ohio State is a physical football team with great backs,” Hope said. Purdue didn’t fair well against Wisconsin’s “great backs,” last week. The Badgers gashed Purdue’s defense for 467 yards rushing while senior running back Montee Ball rushed for a career-high 247 yards. This weekend poses, perhaps, an even tougher challenge for Purdue’s defense, as they travel to Columbus to face the nation’s eighth best rushing offense. The Buckeyes average 263.6 yards per game on the ground this season. “We’re going to have to tackle somebody,” Hope said. Dual-threat déjà vu Michigan and Michigan State will face off in their annual meeting this weekend in a contest with major conference implications on the line. The Spartans are 1-2 in conference play, and a loss to their in-state rival would effectively eliminate them from the race for the Big Ten title. Michigan State has won the last four meetings against Michigan, but the Spartans have never won five in a row against the Maize and Blue. In order to capture its historic victory, MSU will likely need to contain Michigan’s senior quarterback Denard Robinson. The Spartans faced a similar challenge on Sept. 29 against OSU when sophomore Braxton Miller torched the MSU defense for 136 yards rushing. Miller and Robinson are both athletic quarterbacks who can extend plays that would otherwise end in losses, and then turn them into big gains. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said that in order to win, his Spartans have to tackle Robinson when they get the chance. “It’s those loose plays, when you have a guy bottled up, it’s those plays that cause you a lot of anguish,” Dantonio said. Miller currently ranks as the nation’s sixth best rusher with 912 yards on the season. Robinson trails him with 804 yards, but the senior has played in one less game. read more

24 Indians aboard Iranian oil tanker Grace 1 released in

first_imgLondon: The police proceedings against four Indian crew members, including the captain, aboard an Iranian oil supertanker has ended and they were released by authorities in Gibraltar on Thursday, even as the US Department of Justice made a last-minute claim on the vessel. “I am grateful and thankful for my release. And I am grateful to all who have facilitated my release in my legal team,” the Captain of the Grace 1 tanker said in a statement.

Muraleedharan (@MOS_MEA) August 15, 2019A spokesman for Gibraltar’s government also confirmed that police proceedings against four members of the crew had ended. The arrested Indian crew members the Master, Chief Officer and two Second Mates were aboard the Panama-flagged supertanker that was detained off Europa Point in Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory on the Spanish coast, last month. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us The Gibraltar authorities had said the vessel was loaded to capacity with crude oil enroute to Syria, in breach of European Union (EU) sanctions. However, the Gibraltar authorities have since been given assurances from the arrested crew members and Iran that the ship was not on its way to Syria. A total of 28 crew were on board including majority Indians but also Russians, Latvians and Filipinos, who have spent over a month in detention on board the ship since it was seized in early July. Advertise With Us Their further course remains unclear and complicated as a result of the US intervention to request the seizure of Grace 1, which is set for a hearing in the Supreme Court of Gibraltar later on Thursday. “The US Department of Justice has applied to seize the Grace 1 on a number of allegations which are now being considered. The matter will return to the Supreme Court of Gibraltar,” noted a statement from the government of Gibraltar. The UK Foreign Office has declined to comment on the US request and said that investigations conducted around the Grace 1 are a matter for the government of Gibraltar. The Gibraltar port and law enforcement agencies had detained the supertanker and its cargo on July 4 during an operation conducted by the Royal Gibraltar Police (RGP), Customs and Port Authority with the support of British Royal Marines. A Gibraltar government statement noted: The detention of the vessel relates to the suspected destination of the cargo, the Banyas refinery in Syria, which is owned by a company, the Banyas Oil Refinery Company. This company is the subject of European Union sanctions under EU Regulation 36/2012, which is directly applicable in Gibraltar. “The investigations of the Royal Gibraltar Police continue and the vessel remains detained under an Order of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Gibraltar.” However, following the assurances given by Iran and the captain of the ship, the Gibraltar government was all set to allow the vessel to set sail before the US demand, which is reportedly part of the Trump administration’s efforts to intensify the effect of existing Western economic sanctions on both Iran and Syria. Iran had called for the UK to release its oil tanker and warned Britain not to get involved in “this dangerous game”, which eventually led to Iran’s seizure of a British-flagged tanker in the Gulf as well. Tehran blames the US for arranging to have its ship seized in the wake of sanctions imposed against Iran with the aim of halting all its oil exports. European countries do not have sanctions against Iran but have had them in place against Iran’s ally Syria since 2011.last_img read more

Indians seem to be comfortable with Caucasians writing about themselves

first_imgJhinuk Sen chats up Raghu Srinivasan about his The Avatari, the story of a British man’s journey through Ladakh, Pakistan and Afghanistan that is mainly set in 1986, during the height of the Soviet Afghan War. Read on… How did The Avatari happen? How did this story come about?The Avatari owes its origins to a drink I had with an old timer huddled over a stove, in an arctic tent in the shadow of the Karakorum ranges. The old timer had been a mountaineer before he had had a bad fall and had tramped all over the Karakorums, spending much of his time with local porters and guides. It was from them that hewho had picked up a story of a group of Germanswho had formed an expedition to search for Shambhala, and were never heard of again. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’What kind of research did you need to do for The Avatari?I am an avid reader, and the one thing I promised myself while writing The Avatari was that I should attempt to make no factual errors. I remember reading San Andreas by Alistair Maclean; where one of the characters is a Pakistani, but the story is set during World War II – when there could have been no Pakistanis. So starting with reading the BardoThodol (The Tibetan Book of the Dead) and everything that has ever been written about the Shambhala myth, to events as they chronologically happened in history in 1296, 1956, 1963 and 1986 has been researched. I had to do a fair bit of reading on Kublai Khan and Marco Polo as also the Afghan War. Likewise I needed to read up on travelogues of people who had visited the enchanting places which Henry Ashton and his team visit in the book. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhat were the toughest times you faced as The Avatari fell into shape?The Avatari actually began as a short story which I gave up after the first 100 pages. Also it was to deal with a mystical journey and then metamorphosed into an action-quest-adventure.  So at times I must confess I was not totally in control, and the story was writing itself. Also I would write parts which I would fall in love with but had no relation to the movement of the story. I think excising those, especially for a first time author, was really tough. The longest time was spent in figuring out how Shambhala would confer immortality; making it believable to the reader. What was also difficult was getting the story to be chronologically correct; both in terms of years and dates. I received a lot of help getting that right from my wife, Sumita. And … what were the best times?The best times were when I was writing about the military action or the mountains. I could sit on the computer the whole night typing away, actually feeling the sweat stinging my eyes, the sound of gunfire and the icy wind on your face. I would sit at the computer long after I had finished writing, and enjoy the emotion as it slowly drained away.How easy or difficult was it to get a story like this figured out in your head and on paper?I think I started out with a beginning and an ending and some marks in between which I had to get to on the way. But then, like I said at times the story would write itself and I would veer away from the mark, having to create a new one. When you have so many characters and so many periods in history to deal with, the difficult part is to decide how much of detail you need to go into. For the last seven years I have always had The Avatari humming in my head – at times I would be unaware of what was happening around me (much to Sumita’s annoyance). There were times when I thought that I wouldn’t be able to make the story stick and I couldn’t resolve the contradictions for many months; and then luckily I would have a ‘eureka’ moment.Why pick a British hero? Just for argument’s sake – why not an Indian?The story involves the hero undertaking a journey through Ladakh, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and is mainly set in 1986, during the height of the Soviet Afghan War. I don’t think an Indian could have gone to those places at that time without arousing tremendous suspicion or being interned at some stage.You don’t really have an Indian character in the book and even the story touches India only briefly in Leh – was this a conscious call?Like I said it was a question of locations and periods of history where an Indian on the group would have stood out like a sore thumb; and the discerning reader would have easily made out that it was a poorly contrived attempt to bring in an Indian character. Here I would like to make a point that Western writers don’t seem to get asked about the same thing – starting from Jungle Book and The Far Pavilions right up to Dalrymple and Patrick French; Indians seem to be comfortable about Caucasians writing with authority and felicity about themselves. It’s just that an Indian writer hasn’t tried the obverse out so far. As far as locations go, it was just that the story found itself happening at these places.How true are the legends of the Avatari and the Shambhala?They are true!  When you live for eight months on the wrong side of the great mountains, with the passes closed – it is an enchanted world which not many people have the privilege to be part of. For Tibetans, Shambhala exists; definitely on the spiritual plane and possibly at the physical level also. Similarly, the Tibetans believe deeply in the concept of an Avatari – and so do I.What’s next in the pipeline?I am mulling over a story set in China in the near future, and like The Avatari it has historical references. So far I have only the broad contours, but I am hopeful that I will be able to write it faster than The Avatari which took seven years!last_img read more

Let grandpa walk the dog for a healthier life

first_imgFor older adults who share a special bond with pets like dog, walking can benefit in lowering body mass index (BMI), cause fewer doctor visits and more frequent exercises, and increase in their social circle, finds a study.People with higher degrees of pet bonding were more likely to walk their dogs and to spend more time walking their dogs each time than those who reported weaker bonds, the researchers found.“Our study explored the associations between dog ownership and pet bonding with walking behaviour and health outcomes in older adults,” said Rebecca Johnson from University of Missouri-Columbia in the US. The team analysed 2012 data from the “Health and Retirement” study that included data about human-animal interactions, physical activity, frequency of doctor visits and health outcomes of the participants. “The results showed that dog ownership and walking were related to increases in physical health among older adults,” said Johnson. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The findings can provide the basis for medical professionals to recommend pet ownership for older adults and can be translated into reduced health care expenditures for the ageing population.The results also revealed that pet walking offers a means to socialise with pet owners and others.“The study provides evidence for the association between dog walking and physical health,” the researchers added in the paper published in the journal The Gerontologist.last_img read more

Moral decisions linked to brain activity

first_imgWhat makes our decisions morally just or objectionable? It is the brain activity that is responsible for the differences in our moral behaviour, reveals a new study. “Our study demonstrates that with moral behaviour, people may not in fact always stick to the golden rule. While most people tend to exhibit some concern for others, some others may demonstrate ‘moral opportunism’, where they want to look moral but want to maximize their own benefit,” said lead author Jeroen van Baar, a postdoctoral research associate at Brown University, US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, published in Nature Communications journal, researchers developed a computational strategy model to examine the brain activity patterns linked to the moral strategies. The team tried to determine which type of moral strategy the participant was using – inequity aversion; guilt aversion; greed or moral opportunism. The study showed that people used different moral principles to make their decisions and also changed their moral behaviour depending on the situation. “Our results demonstrate that people may use different moral principles to make their decisions, and that some people will apply different principles depending on the situation,” said Chang.last_img read more

Nigel Farage praises principled candidate who thinks gays should be jailed

first_imgFormer UKIP leader Nigel Farage says he has “no hesitation” in supporting a US Senate candidate who has suggested gay sex should be criminalised.Fringe UK politician Nigel Farage spoke at a rally in Alabama last night for Roy Moore, who is in the running for a vacant US Senate seat. Moore is on course to become the most homophobic politician elected to office in recent US history, and has said that “homosexual conduct should be illegal” and compared it to bestiality.Just last week Moore spoke at a debate where he complained that the US had been “shaken” because “sodomy [and] sexual perversion sweep our land”, also lashing out at “social experimentation like transgender troops in our bathrooms”.But it did little to dissuade Nigel Farage, who has long dodged questions about homophobic views in the UK Independence Party.Speaking at the final rally before the run-off election, Farage gave his enthusiastic backing to Moore.He said: “I have absolutely no hesitation in putting my support and my backing behind a man like judge Roy Moore, who has shown in his career that he will always put principle before his own career advancement.”The comment appeared to be a reference to Moore’s dismissal from the Alabama Supreme Court for an illegal crusade against same-sex weddings.Moore formerly served as Alabama’s Chief Justice, but was ejected from the role after fragrantly abusing his authority in a bid to block gay weddings in the state.The disgraced justice had issued a string of orders declaring the US Supreme Court ruling on equal marriage “doesn’t apply” in Alabama due to state anti-gay laws, and ordered probate judges to enforce a gay marriage ban.At the same rally, Farage branded left-wingers “unpleasant”. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) He said: “There are others on the left who are turning increasingly away from democratic process and towards violent, unpleasant, nasty protest.“We see some on the left who now even want to rewrite history, tear down statues and pretend we are different people to who we are.”(Photo by Gary Tramontina/Getty Images)An investigation by CNN last week revealed that Moore believes gay sex should be illegal, confirming in 2005: “Homosexual conduct should be illegal, yes.”Moore has also compared gay sex to bestiality, saying: “Just because it’s done behind closed doors, it can still be prohibited by state law“Do you know that bestiality, the relationship between man and beast is prohibited in every state? It’s the same thing.”It was also revealed that he has appeared multiple times on a radio show hosted by pastor Kevin Swanson, who is known for preaching that gay people must be stoned to death.In a 2015 interview Moore himself refused to say whether he supports gay people being put to death.The winner of this week’s Republican run-off will take on Democrat Doug Jones in the special Senate election on December 12.Victory in the GOP run-off all-but-guarantees victory in the special election, as no Democrat has won a Senate race in the state in more than two decades.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… New UKIP leader Henry Bolton: LGBT rights have gone ‘too far’Trump-backed Senate candidate has praised Russia’s gay propaganda lawRoy Moore’s sexual abuse accuser loses home in possible arson attackPINK NEWS-last_img read more

One repeat exam can throw off an entire day’s schedule by two to three hours, affecting throughput and patient satisfaction. Ingenia 1.5T S is designed for “First Time Right” imaging, addressing the issue in a holistic way.Ingenia 1.5T S combines fat-free and motion-free imaging techniques, patient-centric workflow and a unique patient experience during the exam. The system is complemented with the patient in-bore solution, which offers a comforting, engaging visual distraction. It provides patients with the option to personalize their experience by selecting a visual theme to fill the room with colorful video images, which they can view during the examination. This is combined with soothing audio to create an immersive experience, allowing the patient to relax through the exam.The system also includes AutoVoice to provide clear instructions and coach the patients, while scanner noise is reduced through ComforTone scan techniques. Its Premium IQ imaging, powered by dStream, allows for faster and more robust imaging, while the automated and intelligent iPatient platform provides quick patient setup, allowing clinicians to focus time on ensuring patient comfort.”The MRI exam’s success is dependent on the patient experience: A relaxed and cooperative patient will move less, which benefits the diagnostic quality of the exam,” said Anna-Märta Strömberg, radiographer at Karolinska Children’s Hospital. “Our goal is to coach and try to soothe and relax the patient with a multi-sensory in-bore experience, so that we can complete a scan faster and more accurately.”Ingenia 1.5T S is the newest addition to the Ingenia product line.For more information: www.philips.com/healthcare FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

It should be an embarrassment when you watch the

first_img“It should be an embarrassment when you watch the film, the way we played.”On if there was a no-call penalty on the Jaguars 68-yard kick return:“We decided to kick it left. Phil (Dawson) wanted to kick it left, and we had all our success to the right. We had two new guys over there, too, that got out of their lanes. But yeah, there could have been a call.”On the offensive line’s performance:“I thought it was outstanding. I thought they kept the quarterback clean. We ran the ball well. One of our best performances this year against a really good front.”On why the punt coverage has improved the last month besides the play of Budda Baker and Justin Bethel:“Andy’s (Lee) kicking the ball so well. We’re doing a really good job of securing the protections, so that he can step up and really get it off. His hang time and direction has been outstanding.”On if Andy Lee is doing more directional punting than before:“He’s always been able to do pretty much whatever you want him to do. I think he would like to have that one knuckleball a little bit higher near the end there.”On Foster’s upside:“He took a blitz pick up, up the middle. He stuck his face in there and did a heck of a job. So yeah, his role’s only going to continue to increase.” (AP Photo) On how much upside Gabbert has:“Oh my gosh, a ton. A ton, just as he continues to grow. He’s never been in the same offense two years in a row, so he can blossom.”On if there’s something about his offense that’s conducive to quarterback success:“It’s a very quarterback-friendly offense. It’s a heavy workload on a quarterback, and we ask them to do an awful lot. But, once you get it, it’s pretty quarterback-friendly.”On Gabbert’s football intelligence compared to other quarterbacks he’s coached:“He’s up there. You don’t just come in, change protections, see your hots and sights, and all the things that he has done so fast. He was doing it in OTAs (organized team activities) and preseason games. As he sees the exotic looks, he’s starting to know how to pick them up, how to get out of there and make plays.”On if Gabbert is on the level of Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck or Peyton Manning with his football intelligence:“Yeah, he’s up there. To play at this level in seven offenses is not easy, and he’s had success, especially in this offense. But yeah, he’s up there with those guys mentally with Drew and those guys.”On if play-action and intermediate calls helped free up Jaron Brown for the touchdown: Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “Nothing. Just continue to grow. Just get better. Protect the ball when you’re scrambling around. The other thing is when he does break out, we did a really … We haven’t had a scramble drill in so long, our receivers did a really bad job of scramble drill – who was going deep, who was coming back.“Guys were shooting the opposite way across the field. We’ve got to get that cleaned up, so that when he gets out of there, he can still make plays down the field. He anticipated a coverage on the interception. The safety just bit on his eyes, and he really had Jaron wide open. But, it was Cover 3, so he thought the safety would have been back on the post, but he could have pumped him and got a touchdown.“So, little things like that that he’ll continue to improve in the offense.”On where Drew Stanton is in the equation:“Drew will be backing him up. He’s getting healthier and healthier, but we’re going to stick with Blaine right now.”On how Gabbert is taking this opportunity:“I’m really proud of him. These things don’t happen – you hope they don’t happen very often when your top two guys go down, but we’re very blessed to have him, and he has taken the bull by the horns and showing us, ‘I’m a player. I can play at this level and play very high.’” “Well running the ball, we got the linebackers out of there, but then Larry (Fitzgerald) came on a deep cross and that’s like a magnet. He jumped Larry on a deep cross, and it’s pretty much a given that when we run that play, they’re going to jump Larry if we have time to throw it deep.”On if there are times when Gabbert needs to take some arm strength off his passes when he’s on the run:“He does a fairly good job of that. There’s not a lot of times where he’s throwing it too hard. Now, he still gets off behind hips a little bit, and we’ve got to make some catches for him. The almost interception to J.J. (Nelson) needs to be about two feet out in front of J.J. instead of the back hip. Just those accuracy things, and he’s very capable.”On D.J. Foster’s catch in the fourth quarter:“I thought it was a great play by both of them – D.J. to stay with the route because they had changed coverage. Myles Jack slipped, and he got it in there and just did a great job of keeping his feet down.”On if he’ll stick with Patrick Peterson at punt returner if Kerwynn Williams can’t play:“J.J. was ready, and we’ll see who else can go back there.”On what Josh Bynes gave the defense: The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media several times leading up to gameday.Here, in this space, with help from the Cardinals’ media relations staff, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following practice.Opening statement:“Injury-wise, it does not look like Deone’s (Bucannon) is as severe as it once looked. We’re still waiting on some images to come back. We sent everything off to the surgeon who did his repair because all the injury is to that part of the leg. It could be a day or two; it could be serious. So, we don’t know yet. On how comfortable he would be with Gabbert starting at quarterback in 2018 should Carson Palmer retire:“The way he’s playing right now, I’d be very, very comfortable.”On if he thinks that could happen:“Oh yeah. I think it’s a possibility.”On his thought process on the fourth-and-one on the 50-yard line:“Blaine tried to talk me into it, and I just kept looking to see if it was going to be six inches or a yard. We knew we’d get the ball back, and I’m really pissed off because we didn’t line up properly on that one play; it cost us one of our timeouts, or we’d have two timeouts. But, we knew we were going to get the ball back if they threw it, and they did.”On the problems it causes for opposing defenses to have Ricky Seals-Jones split out wide:“That’s why he has to line up and block. So, he’s considered a tight end. He did a good job on those assignments in that ball game. So that when he gets split out, he’s got a safety or linebacker. If it’s a corner, you know the coverage. It’s zone. So, those types of things are real easy for a quarterback to see. He’s got enough explosiveness to beat a corner, but it’s also very easy reads for a quarterback.”center_img On if he has noticed a difference in Chandler Jones this season after he lost weight:“Oh, yeah. He looks like a linebacker instead of a defensive end, and he’s got his quickness. I think the other thing is his stamina. He never wears out during the game.”On if Jones’ improvements this year result from comfort with the playbook and better understanding of his role:“I think all those things – being comfortable with who he is on the team, his status on the team and just going out and play. Nobody’s holding him back, and he can do anything he wants out there, just make sure it’s good.”On what he saw from Robert Nkemdiche:“I thought he had one of his better games, and he got a slight ankle sprain again. We’ll see how bad it is, but I don’t think it’s anything serious. He had one of his better games.”On having a lot of fans in Seattle rooting for him this upcoming weekend:“Oh, yeah. For sure. We have three or four different groups cheering for us, but I was really happy with the way our fans turned out. Man, they were loud and great.” – / 51 Top Stories “He’ll get a game ball. He played lights out, especially in that sub-package, which he hasn’t played in yet, but he got mental reps. And he had no mental errors, just had unbelievable stats, but he led the team and was truly a true ‘next man up’ mentality. And he was more than ready to play and played as a starter and played at a very high level.”On if he anticipates moving Haason Reddick inside if Deone Bucannon is out:“Yeah, those things we’ll talk about, because Josh played so well. We’ve got packages with him back there anyways and especially on sub.”On what it means for the team to still be in the playoff race after all the team has been through this year:“It’s never over, especially this year. It’s a crazy year and having all these home games at the end of the season, had we just scratched out one or two road games earlier, we knew they’d be very, very important.”On the importance of this Sunday’s game against an NFC West opponent:“It’s huge. To climb back in the division, get a division win, bringing them back to us and us get higher, it’s a big, big game.”On if the loss to the Rams in London lingers as the team prepares for the Rams: 2 Comments   Share   “Josh Mauro sucked it up. He didn’t last very long on his ankle and re-sprained it. Other than that, I can’t think of anybody else that is going to miss any time. Kerwynn (Williams) cracked a couple ribs, so it’s just going to be how much he can play with pain. That’s pretty hard to do as a running back. I would anticipate he might miss some time. As far as the game, some really, really good plays.“The one thing I thought throughout the game, our guys played hard, really gave great effort in all three phases. It wasn’t perfect, but it was good enough to win. Been waiting to get some home games because that’s exactly what we needed, and the crowd was fantastic.“I thought Blaine’s (Gabbert) play to the 50-yarder to Jaron (Brown) was one only a few guys can make because Calais (Campbell) came fairly unblocked, and he knew. He had enough instinct not to draw back with the ball and still had enough strength to put it out there and not get it tipped. That was a fantastic play by him.“Overall, Chandler (Jones) was unbelievable. We had so many game balls, but the guys had a victory Monday, so we’ll give them out Wednesday.”On what else Blaine Gabbert needs to show him: Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Airbus A318 Elite has successfully passed the mil

first_imgAirbus’ A318 Elite has successfully passed the milestone of its tenth aircraft delivery, highlighting the widespread and growing appeal of this new member of the family, which was launched less than four years ago, in November 2005.The A318 Elite has won more than 25 sales in Asia, Europe and the Middle East – about a quarter of the 100-plus sales won by the Airbus ACJ Family to date.Derived from the smallest member of the modern Airbus aircraft family, the A318 Elite is unique in bringing the space and comfort previously only associated with much larger jets, to a much broader market.“Our A318 Elite is the new space-ship of corporate jet travel, because of the leap in comfort and space that it brings to a broad market,” comments Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “The A318 Elite is also a very affordable package, delivering value as well as comfort and space,” he adds.The A318 Elite features an optimised cabin, produced in co-operation with Lufthansa Technik, offering attractive affordability and unmatched comfort.Comlux of Switzerland took delivery of the first A318 Elite in 2007, and recently became the first to take delivery of a second for VVIP charter, which Airbus is displaying at this year’s NBAA show. The A318 Elite has met with great success on the VVIP charter market, and is currently available for charter from Global Jet Concept in Geneva, as well as Comlux Aviation in Zurich.This A318 Elite on display at NBAA features further improvements, such as a domed ceiling that brings a refreshing new ambiance to what is already the widest, tallest and most spacious cabin in its class.In essence, customers get even more of a feeling of being in a stylish home or office rather than an aircraft, which is, in Airbus’ experience, what most of them really want.Airbus can offer the domed ceiling because the upper interior of its aircraft is relatively uncluttered, allowing the installation of concave panels that create a pleasing impression of light and space that is unique to its aircraft in this class.The A318 Elite has a range of more than 4,200 nm/7,800 km, allowing it to fly coast-to-coast within the USA, and to fly non-stop between London and New York.Total sales of the Airbus corporate jets now stand at more than 150, comprising over 100 of the ACJ Family, plus a further 50 or so Airbus widebodies for VIP and government use.www.airbus.comlast_img read more

running for president office? connections between FB and national intelligence services esp of third world countries.I’d like to know about new fb CEO tendencies on these matters LG Me too Nick Rowan asks How worried are you that we might eventually loose so many beautiful local languages because of Facebook’s reach LG: Im more than worried its almost certainly happening now I dont think theres any way to stop it If we want to be a connected species one of the ways were going to pay for it is by sacrificing our linguistic diversity Nick Rowan asks One more question: I understand Facebook’s intention is to try to connect the people of the world which is great But I worry about American talents spending so much resources to create something great without having any intention of the creator to share it with the global marketplace People and the companies here in the US meant to share some of these ideas with each other Do you think Does Facebook worry about sharing too much information with the rest of the world Doesn’t Facebook’s own existence depend on America’s superiority LG: I dont think Facebook is sharing too much information if youre talking about trade secrets and intellectual property that kind of information Or not that I know of And I dont think Facebook depends on American superiority but I definitely think it helps the people I met in India felt like Facebook offered them not just social connectedness but economic opportunity a connection however tenuous to American wealth Though I wouldnt rule out the possibility that America might start depending on Facebook one day deconstructiva asks #AskTIME Lev we’re all too aware of the disgusting Gamergate issues against women but has Gamergate been infiltrating fantasy literature too or has it avoided it Might upcoming fantasy novels and series help fight back against Gamergate misogyny and help level the playing field for young girls and women Or just stay out of the whole mess altogether LG: I dont think fantasy literature has avoided it I dont think its nearly as bad in gamingI mean the kind of harassment and hate speech we saw with GamerGate was absolutely vilebut sexism is definitely present in fantasy in places Also a serious lack of diversity Unlike in gaming I think theres already a strong powerful and very old tradition of women writing fantasy that we can build on But our work is far from done yogi asks Lev I’ve read the first two books in your Magicians trilogy (3rd is in the to read pile) I remember hearing a little while back that there was initial work into looking to make the series a TV show Is that still in the works LG: Its happening Theyre filming the pilot now Im not there but Ive seen some amazing photos from the set deconstructiva asks Lev where do you stand on the paper books vs e-books epic battle I don’t think paper books will ever go away For one thing servers crash and files corrupt so e-books do NOT always last forever In music vinyl records still exist let alone CD’s And when the power goes out during a long storm and the mobile devices’ batteries have died the paper books are still there to read LG: Im an evangelist for the paper book I just think its better information technology than any e-reader that exists And nobody owns it nobodys making money off it it’s not a proprietary format E-books are great for textbooks (which you don’t always hang on to after the course is over) and reference works (because of the searchability) but no screen can match the experience of reading a novel on paper When I die Im not going to leave my kids an Amazon account Im going to leave them a library deconstructiva asks Lev thanks for earlier writing about Apple invading our bodies After Apple’s watch Google Glass eyewear and fitness applications the next logical step is to go inside our bodies so that we really do turn into RoboCops While we already have smart medical devices how far away or close are we to conscious personal implants like iBrain and Google (rhymes with Glass) Would you be comfortable with personal control and privacy issues I sense not from your Apple-invading article and I’d be wary of literally losing control of one’s own body but I digress LG: I think we’re decades away from implants but not centuries away I know neural implants are already in use for medical purposes I don’t think I’m unusually squeamish but it would be hard for me to name a corporation I trust enough that I would let them put their product in my body as an implant deconstructiva asks Lev thanks for writing about Mark Zuckerberg Since his mission is to connect the world (literally) he might also want to tackle harder Facebook’s long history of privacy problems I’ve read many articles about people’s privacy issues with FB and even quitting the service So how much does Zuckerberg recognize this problem or is this just another technical issue to him After all the human element is more critical here than the technical one since if people can’t trust Facebook with their privacy he won’t be able to succeed in his Big Picture goal of wiring the world correct LG: Correct It’s been consumers rather than government that have been pushing back on this issue And in the early years Facebooks handling of privacy issues was clumsy and insensitive at best But one thing Zuckerberg does do is learn even when he doesn’t have a natural feel for something I dont know if its driven by ethical or economic motives or both but Zuckerberg has been learning to satisfy people’s demands for privacy on Facebook That said I don’t know how clear an idea people have of what exactly is done with their personal information on Facebook On that issue no amount of transparency is too much nflfoghorn asks Lev what do you think of this journalistic “list of” fad “Sixteen Things We’ve Learned About Kardashian’s Rump” “Four Things You Must Know About Ebola”…IMO it should be “One Thing You Must Know About American History” Every day LG: I think that would be a good idea The listification of American journalism is not a step forward PaulDirks asks In the ’60s we were all taught to fear government surveillance and the Church Commission did much to curtail the worst abuses In the 90’s we did battle over the clipper chip and for a while it seemed that the notion of 24/7 monitoring of citizens was put to a rest Today OTOH we offer Google and Facebook absolute knowledge of our every movement and no one seems to bat an eyelash at the fact that all that information can be subpoenaed at any moment Furthermore the people who have the most to lose with cameras everywhere appears to be the police Do you think that we’re being naive about the amount of information we make available online or is this just the unstoppable march of progress LG: I do think were being nave And its definitely the march of progress but I dont think its unstoppable I dont think well see people getting up in arms about it not directly because the vast majority of Americans havent and will never have their personal information used against them by the government The issue just doesn’t seem urgent to most people If the Snowden leak doesnt do that nothing will But were seeing it in other arenas: Sony getting hacked the mass theft of credit card info from Target naked pictures getting made public etc People understand about protecting their money and their bodies they’re less abstract than civil rights I think were learning hard lessons about how much information were willing to give out just because its conventient DonQuixotic asks Lev as someone who has worked in the process I assume you have some insight as to the selection process for TIME’s Person of the Year Is there a reason each year the list is padded with celebrities Hollywood start and music artists that have zero impact on the world Why we see a nomination for someone like Kim Kardashian but not say the people of Ukraine Mark Zuckerberg certainly earned his person of the year status Is it just a popularity contest now LG: Its a fair assumption But the truth is I dont participate very much in the selection process Early on in the process all staff members are asked to nominate candidates and I definitely do that But the rest of it happens above my pay grade Contact us at editors@timecomCoca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent likes new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau A lot The chief of the beverage giant brought up the newly elected prime minister during a panel on women in corporate leadership at the Women’s Forum of New York’s Breakfast of Corporate Champions on Nov 19 Later Kent brought Trudeau up again in an interview lauding the PM’s insistence on a Cabinet that is 50% female “Im a big big fan” Kent said “Hes my favorite feminist right now” Kent it seems isn’t shy with the f-word “If you’re a male and you’re at the top you have to be a feminist and you have to be proud of being a feminist” he says “Being a declared feminist Id even go as far as to positively discriminate to put it in peoples annual assessment” When Kent became CEO of Coca-Cola in 2009 he noticed a stark contrast: 70% of consumers were female but there were only two women on the corporate board and female senior leadership was in the low teens He says he recalls thinking to himself “this is the lowest-hanging fruit we need to solve this” Since then Kent has doubled the number of women on the board of the company (from two to four out of a total of 15) External hiring of women to senior leadership roles has increased from 13% in 2007 to 28% in 2014 And under Kent’s leadership the company has launched a 5by20 program with the goal of providing economic empowerment to women to 5 million women by 2020 Some 865000 women have participated in the entrepreneurial program across 52 countries Read More: Here’s What Happens When You Put More Women in Government That’s all part of the CEO’s “golden triangle” plan: getting more women on the board aiming for gender parity in senior leadership and doing something meaningful for women outside the company “In the second decade of the 21st century unless you’re able to balance the social and economic values properly you are not going to succeed economically” he says “Women have a better feeling a better immersion a better ideation on how to create positive balance between social and economic values” Cautioning against “lip service” corporate feminism Kent insists that “theres a lot of talk but you have to also actyou have to act with real precision and a real commitment” He says his company currently offers seven to eight weeks of paid maternity leave but that it is re-evaluating leave policies During the panel he said he favors term limits for board members to encourage more turnover and to help create opportunities for women (although Coca-Cola does not currently plan to implement board term limits) Companies need to be more flexible in allowing talented women to take advantage of technology to make their jobs work he says recalling an example of a high-ranking operator whom he allowed to telecommute from Paris to London so she wouldn’t have to uproot her daughter Flexibility through technology he says is his chief advice to young women leaders especially mothers: “If theres a dinner you don’t have to go for the entire dinner” he says “You stop by for 10 or 15 minuets before you go home you see and be seen establish the contacts and then call them on your phone Establish a network through technology” And the five million women he’s
