Thai soccer players can return home after two weeks trapped in flooded

first_imgMembers of a Thai youth soccer team who were trapped in a cave have left the hospital where they have been treated since their rescue, and held news conference before they return to their homes.The 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach had been pronounced generally healthy by doctors, aside from some minor infections.Entering to applause from the media and classmates, the team appeared to be in good spirits.The boys put on a quick demonstration of their ball-handling skills in a special miniature soccer field set up in the hall where they met the media on Wednesday.They then hugged their friends before taking seats up front with doctors and others who helped them during their ordeal.Doctors took the first two questions, and said the 13 were healthy in body and mind. Doctors said the boys gained around 3 kilograms on average since they were rescued from the cave last week. They were said to have lost an average of 4 kilograms during the more than two weeks they were trapped in the cave.The boys described the terrifying moment they realized they were trapped all the way into the cave and described how when they tried to make their way back they faced a sea of water.Officials reviewed reporters’ questions in advance to make sure they wouldn’t cause damaging psychological effects.last_img read more

Egyptian Copt gets life over sectarian killings

first_imgCAIRO – An Egyptian Copt was sentenced Saturday to life in prison as 10 others got jail terms from six months to 15 years over sectarian deaths in April, judicial sources said.Seven people — five Christians, one Muslim and an unidentified man — were killed when sectarian violence erupted in Al-Khusus, north of Cairo, after a Muslim objected to children drawing a swastika on a religious institute.He then insulted Christians and the incident flared into an exchange of gunfire between Muslims and Christians, security officials said at the time. Several shops and houses were also set ablaze.On Saturday, a court in Benha, north of the capital, delivered the verdicts against 11 Christian and Muslim men.It also acquitted 32 others out of a total of 43 defendants in the case, the judicial sources said.Five defendants are still at large, they added without offering further details.Of those sentenced three were Copts. One was handed down a life term and the other two got 15 years.The others found guilty were Muslims: four were sentenced to five years, three to three years and one to six months.Sectarian clashes between Copts and Muslims regularly occur in Egypt.Copts represent nearly 10 percent of Egypt’s population of about 85 million people and are the largest Christian community in the Middle East.last_img read more

GEEK PICK Nintendo Switch Adjustable Charging Stand

first_img Obviously the biggest appeal of the Nintendo Switch (besides its banger library of exclusive Nintendo video games) is its ability to be played in all kinds of context. Put it in the dock and play on your television. Hold it in your hands and play portably. Or prop it up on its kickstand for a sort of hybrid “tabletop” mode.Out of these three modes though tabletop mode has always seemed the shakiest, literally once you realize how flimsy the default kickstand is. Sure you can have multiplayer sessions with everyone crowding around the six-inch screen. But the limited battery life puts a time cap on the fun, and since the charging port is on the bottom of the tablet it can’t be accessed while playing like this, unlike with the other two modes.That last part, the blocked charging port, has always just seemed like a straight-up design flaw. And now Nintendo apparently agrees because they’ve just released the Nintendo Switch Adjustable Charging Stand ($20).This tiny black stand connects to the Switch’s USB-C port and has a USB-C port of its own. So simply connect it to your Switch power adapter to keep the system alive while propped up in tabletop mode. The sturdier adjustable kickstand on the back also lets you view the Switch at different, more comfortable angles.「Nintendo Switch充電スタンド(フリーストップ式)」は本日発売です。本体の画面の角度を自由に変えられる、テーブルモード用のスタンドです。— 任天堂株式会社 (@Nintendo) July 13, 2018And that’s pretty much it! A bunch of third-party Switch stands had offered functionality like this beforehand. Heck, some of them offered more functionality like a HDMI port turning the stand into a miniature dock, a feature we can’t fathom why Nintendo didn’t include here. However, recent firmware updates have also been bricking Switches connected to third party docks. You (hopefully) won’t have this issue with an official Nintendo accessory. It would really suck to lose all that progress just weeks before cloud saves roll out with Nintendo Switch Online.The Nintendo Switch Adjustable Charging Stand is available now, oh-so conveniently timed with the release of two exciting new Switch games in the form of Octopath Traveler and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Wreckage of crashed Alaska sightseeing plane recovered

first_imgThe wreckage of a sightseeing plane that crashed near Ketchikan last month, killing all nine people onboard, has been recovered.Clint Johnson, chief of the Alaska regional office of the National Transportation Safety Board, says the wreckage was removed from the steep, rugged terrain over the weekend, loaded onto a barge and transported to a locked hangar at Ketchikan on Monday. The next step is for the investigation team to reconvene there.The plane was carrying eight cruise ship passengers on a shore excursion to Misty Fjords National Monument near Ketchikan when it crashed June 25. The pilot also died.Authorities had been waiting for a heavy-lift helicopter to become available to remove the wreckage.The cause of the crash remains under investigation.last_img read more

Defense Secretary says hell visit Alaska this week little else

first_imgDefense Secretary Ash Carter testifies at a Senate hearing. (Photo: DoD)Another member of the president’s cabinet is coming to Alaska. Defense Sec. Ashton Carter revealed this morning that he’ll visit the 49th state some day this week.Download AudioDetails are scarce, but Sec. Carter let slip his travel plans at a Senate Armed Services hearing, after agreeing with Sen. Dan Sullivan that the military should have a serious operation plan for the Arctic.“And we’ll have a chance, actually, to discuss that in Alaska later this week,” Carter said.That was all he said about the trip. A Pentagon spokesman confirms Sec. Carter will visit this week and says they’ll release details in the coming days. Mike Anderson, a spokesman for Sen. Sullivan, says the secretary expects to land in Fairbanks.At the hearing, Carter was oblique when Sullivan asked him to confirm news that the U.S. sent a ship into waters China claims for itself.“We have said, and we are acting on the basis of saying, that we will fly, sail and operate wherever international law permits,” Carter said.Sullivan asked again.“There have been naval operations in that region in recent days,” Carter acknowledged.When Sullivan was done, Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican who chairs the committee, said it’s frustrating that Carter is keeping mum about a known operation.“You refuse to confirm or deny something that’s been all over the media, and confirmed by everyone, and you come before this committee and say you won’t comment on it?” McCain asked, voice laden with incredulity. “Why?”Carter cracked.“I’m going to not be coy with you,” he said. “I don’t like in general the idea of talking about our military operations, but what you read in the newspaper is accurate.”Sullivan is a critic of what he sees as the Defense Department’s inaction in several parts of the globe, including the response when Chinese military ships were spotted within the 12-mile territorial zone off the Aleutians.U.S. Defense officials concluded it was “innocent passage,” that the Chinese were heading home after a joint exercise with the Russians.  Sullivan said it was more like provocation.last_img read more

11 Best SciFi TV Shows to Binge Watch

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target There’s nothing that makes a human happier than binge-watching a good show. You’ll sit and let Netflix yell at you to get up and stretch once in awhile, but you can’t stop a good show once it gets started. One thing I personally love to binge is a great sci-fi show. Sci-fi has a lot of different plots, storylines, layers, and imagery that you want to soak in as much as possible without stopping.So, what better way to give that love of binge-watching than to suggest some television shows for you guys. Here are 11 of the best sci-fi tv shows to binge-watch. Don’t let Netflix tell you what to do, watch to your heart’s content!BLACK MIRROR(Photo: Screenshot via YouTube/Netflix)Have enough comfort snacks at your disposable and want to see bad things happen to people via technology? I suggest you start your binge of Black Mirror sooner than later. Black Mirror is an anthology in the vein of shows such as The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits that proves just how technology and humanity are the absolute worst.Created by Charlie Brooker and showrun by himself and Annabel Jones, Black Mirror is designed to make you think. More in the realm of how often and how much we use technology in our everyday existence and the amount of energy we’re putting into it. We aim to make our lives better with it. Are we getting better though, or only getting worse? Black Mirror has some heavily episodes under its belt with four seasons on Netflix and with a couple of awards as well. “San Junipero” (one of the only happy episodes you will receive) was nominated and won an Emmy award! Black Mirror is almost way too horrifying realistic, but with it’s vivid and star-studded episodes, Black Mirror is guaranteed to have you wanting to live in a remote cabin in the woods forever.TWILIGHT ZONEvia CBSFun fact about this writer: I’m heavily obsessed with The Twilight Zone. This was the first show I ever binge-watched as a young. I will re-watch to this day because I have the box set of all six seasons. It started to become a ritual treat yo self-gift. The Twilight Zone, created by Rod Serling, is an anthology series that wasn’t the first of its kind, but the first to do it bigger than ever with everyone trying to capture that magic. The one thing about The Twilight Zone that continues to get fans, critics and first-time watchers to this day is the spans all genre it goes through without compromising the show whatsoever.Twilight Zone gives moral dilemmas and lessons on the backdrop of stories that use science fiction, drama, suspense, thriller, horror and more. This has long-time fans hanging on and new fans tuning in. The lessons and storytelling don’t age a bit. Humans are still latched to these problems today. The Twilight Zone gives you a terrifically rich and dramatic setting to tell these problems in. This is much like it’s successor Black Mirror that uses technology to teach about war, injustice, social issues, conflict, and much more. The Twilight Zone captures you because of its different type and types of storytelling. Rod Sterling, his writers and the team that worked behind this series were developing something extraordinary that shocks and astounds to this day.STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARSvia always feel like I give a particular show on this list that will make readers squint a little with heads to the side. However, I stand by this one (as do all my terrible choices) 100%. If you want a terrific show that gives a lot of characterization to some Star Wars characters that you found weak in the prequels, you totally want to see what this show is about. I was even super hesitant at first. I’m a massive Star Wars fan. I bounce in and out because of what people are doing to the franchise. But I took my time watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and once I started, the fun didn’t stop.Created by George Lucas and developed by Dave Filoni, Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes place in the prequel between Episode II and Episode III. You know, back when everything was okay, and Anakin wasn’t so… Anakin. The Clone Wars ends up breathing new life into the Star Wars canon and taking characters in a direction that you wish would have happened on screen. They are stand-alone episodes, so you don’t have to watch them in order, but it shows epic development with Obi-Wan, Anakin, Ahsoka, Darth Sidious, Padme, Darth Maul, Grievous, the list goes on and on. Give it a try. Also, if you want to watch them in order, has given a chronological guide here.WESTWORLDvia HBOThe first time you hear the concept of Westworld, you can already think of how much of a bad idea it would be in retrospect. A technology-based amusement part with hosts at your disposal. You can do anything you want to them, and they can’t hurt you. If that doesn’t sound like a recipe for disaster, right? Well… Westworld gives it to you on a horseback ride into nowhere. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy created the series based on the film Westworld (1973) by author Michael Crichton, who also wrote Jurassic Park. The film focuses on the same premise as the show but focuses its scope on a smaller level. With the TV show, Nolan and Joy take the ideas that Crichton made in that original movie and makes it completely bonkers.Westworld is genuinely a delight with a killer build-up and containing a star-studded cast of Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Hopkins, Jimmi Simpson and more. Westworld is something that you have to binge straight though. It’s hard to sit and wait each week for new episodes because of the guaranteed twist and turns you’re going to get. You’ll marvel at the visuals of the west, countered with the techno based lab and elegant settings with Ford (Anthony Hopkins). It combines so many fascinating intertwining loops that keep you drawn to your TV set. The second season of Westworld is premiering on April 22nd, so you better get your HBO subscription and check.DOCTOR WHOWilliam Hartnell as the First Doctor (via BBC)Without a doubt, Doctor Who is probably one of the best shows that you can binge. This is biased of my cause I adore the show so much. It’s a show that’s stood the test of time in sci-fi shows and continues to be as significant since its conception in 1963. Created by Sydney Newman, C.E. Webber, and Donald Wilson, Doctor Who tells the many journeys and misadventures of The Doctor, a mysterious, delightful and sometimes frightening time-traveling alien from Gallifrey. He travels in his beautiful blue-box called The Tardis, which looks like a police box and always manages to pick up a couple of companions along the way to join in his adventures. The Doctor change from time to time, as well as the companions. It keeps the stories fresh and exciting for the old and new audiences to jump in on the action.Doctor Who is one of those shows that continue to be a part of geek life. It has a lot of history, lore and fictional goodness to absorb. If you haven’t watched this show, you’re missing out on storytelling that is something out of this world. These seasons and series carry plots that are heartwarming, heartbreaking, visually stunning, morally engaging and comedy gold. Currently, we’re in a massive shift in the Whoniverse. We just lost our Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companions (Pearl Mackie, Matt Lucas). But we now have our next one with Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor and Chris Chibnall as showrunner.If you’ve binged Doctor Who and want some other shows in the Whoniverse that can satisfy your cravings, I got the perfect ones for you. Class, created by Patrick Ness, revolved around the adventures of kids attending Coal Hill Academy, the reassuring fictional school of the show. Torchwood, created by Russell T Davies (past Doctor Who showrunner) and lead by Jack Harkness (a companion of the 9th and 10th Doctor), this series is an absolute trip. It follows Jack Harkness and his team, Torchwood, as they go alien hunting in Wales. Sarah Janes Adventures, also created by Russell T Davies, puts Sarah Jane Smith, a past companion, in the title role as an investigative journalist. There are the comics, published by Titan Comics and Big Finish Productions. They specialize in storytelling audiobooks that brought back past Doctors to tell new stories for Who fans to enjoy.ORPHAN BLACKvia BBC AmericaOrphan Black in itself is just a big experience that you have to be apart of at least once. Even if you end up not liking the show, it will be something that sticks in your mind for a very long time because of how insanely quick and brilliant it is. Created by Greame Manson and John Fawcatt, Orphan Black stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Manning, Cosima Niehaus, Helena, Alison Hendrix, Rachel Duncan and so many more. It’s hard to describe Orphan Black without getting into the full scope and spoilers of what it’s about so I won’t even try.The show centers around a woman named Sarah Manning, who assumes the identity of another woman who has her same face and turns out to be her clone. The show centers heavily around human cloning, the ethics surrounding it and the bond of sisterhood. If you need another great reason to watch it, Tatiana Maslany is an absolute FORCE. She commands the screen in her many, many roles and carries a great and powerful presence in the show. She also makes every character remarkably individual and special. This show is utterly different and way out of the box then things we’ve seen on TV before. It’s honestly unique in a way where you won’t forget about it even when you finish watching.X-FILESvia FoxThere will never be a day where we don’t stop believing in The X-Files. For a good reason, it’s highly bingable and monumentally addictive. This sci-fi show is created by Chris Carter, airing on Fox in 1993 and lasting til this day. With a few brief hiatus and cancellations in between, The X-Files is stronger than ever. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson play Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, a believer and a skeptic working together at the FBI to solve cases that are… just a bit too odd for anyone else.Something that has stood the test of time about the show is the storytelling themselves and the natural chemistry that Anderson and Duchovny have with each other. The stories are something out of the box. It sticks to the typical sci-fi elements that you’re “supposed” to do, but it doesn’t stop there. It gets into the weird and wacky parts of it while veering off into horror and drama sometimes. This gives the show a more realistic tone with also being out of this world. Anderson and Duchovny as Scully and Mulder are absolute delights that hold this show in such high regards. It doesn’t feel like The X-Files without them. They slowly become your parents of the paranormal and you walk hand in hand with them looking back at their cases together.FRINGEvia FoxAre you a massive geek for strange science that people won’t think is exactly “normal” science? Science that pushes you over the head? Looks at the unexplained, imaginary or extraordinary? You definitely want to watch Fringe. From the brilliant, noble minds of JJ Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci comes a show about a division of the FBI that revolves around science practices that dabble in the parallel universes, dreams, shapeshifters and so much more. The show is a bit bananas but in the best kinds of ways.The one thing I appreciate Fringe for is the pay off when a plot happens. Many shows build up a side plot that’s so interesting and drop it halfway throughout the season. Fringe tries to keep that mystery going within its episode with a payoff at the end. It’s a show that keeps you glues into whats going or about to happen cause the situations, people and science get even more bonkers than the last. I will say this, season five of the show does get a little murky and muddy. Before you start your binge of this dope show, I should warn you about the slight bit of disappointment you may feel. (Or not! You may love it! Who knows? That’s the fun!)RICK AND MORTYvia Adult SwimIf we’re gonna talk about animated sci-fi, we can pull out a lot of different shows. I don’t think I can just leave Star Wars: The Clone Wars for you guys. We can pull out some utterly dope animated sci-fi such as Futurama, Dexter’s Laboratory, Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, The Jetsons and more. There’s one show that has ultimately made everyone go absolutely mad as they can get and that’s Rick and Morty.Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, created this wickedly hilarious yet polarizing show about Rick, the maddest of scientists. With his nephew Morty, his boy assistant/torture-weapon/unwilling participate by his side and their family Sarah, Beth, and Jerry. The show is absolutely bonkers. No one should take it as anything but that. On my very first watch, I observed this show with a bewildered face, but laughing all the way through. Harmon and Roiland tend to create lightning in a bottle. They shake that bottle enough for it to obliterate everything when you let it go completely. I think that’s the best metaphor for this show.LEGIONvia FX NetworksI could go on and on about Legion, but I swear, I’ll keep it short and sweet. This was one of my picks for best TV to come out of 2017. It’s so different from any X-Men show or movie we’ve gotten in the past few years. Legion, created by Noah Hawley, focuses on the mutant David Haller aka Legion. He just so happens to be one of the most powerful mutants alive as he tried to navigate his new powers and tries not to let his mind wander. He’s also the son of Charles Xavier, yes, THE Charles Xavier. Legion is a character meant to blow your mind. As an omega mutant, it’s almost hard to imagine how this show was going to be a thing. Legion is a complex character filled with psychological, emotional storylines and characterization that can get a little…. weird.This show absolutely nails everything you thought about the title characters. It’s funky, bizarre, wacky and downright brilliant in very few words (trust me, I could go on). It’s a show that isn’t afraid to push the limits and visuals of what a traditional show is. That’s the most crucial part about Legion. You’re dealing with a mind practically fractured. You need to go the extra mile to nail what the show can be. Legion does this by going above and beyond whats necessarily to the show. It brings viewers a fantastically beautiful and insane piece of TV that you can’t help but binge.STRANGER THINGSvia NetflixI feel like everyone knew this one was coming. Stranger Things was a sleeper hit that exploded overnight. Developed by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things implements a lot of elements from different genres including as sci-fi, horror, drama, and romance (which, happily doesn’t take up a big chunk of the story).Stranger Things centers around the group of four friends (Mike, Will, Dustin, and Lucas) who are the greatest of nerds in the 1980s. Their lives drastically change when one of their friends goes missing. They search for him, but in between this, they also find a strange girl on a rainy night. Weird labs, conspiracies, upside down plans of existence, this show has it all.The young cast, plus some fantastic actors lead this series to full glory and will leave you holding your breath with its many, many, MANY hilarious, but terrifying moments. Plus, it fuels the nostalgic fix inside all of us.It references some incredible movies of the 70s and 80s including, but not limited to The Goonies, IT, Altered States, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Videodrome. Stranger Things is such a study in character development and design. It’s also a study in the art of storytelling in a setting that twists and turns so frequently it leaves you NEEDING more.center_img Netflix Axes ‘The OA’ Sci-Fi Series After 2 Seasons‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ Becomes Mostly Harm… last_img read more

Mustwin is probably overused A team is on a lo

first_img“Must-win” is probably overused. A team is on a losing streak? Their next contest is a must-win. A team goes down 2-0 in a seven-game series? Game three is a must-win. A team is playing an inferior opponent late in the season with a slew of far more difficult opposition awaiting them? That’s a must-win.Of course, none of these scenarios are technically true must-wins — in a “win or go home” sense — but their gravity cannot be understated, thus the emphatic tag. Top Stories Mathieu’s absence will surely be felt in the Cardinals’ secondary, but it is up to Cason and company to play stopgap — minimizing the effect of Honey Badger’s injury. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick’s frequent downfield throws will make this especially difficult for the secondary. Deep threats like Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Justin Hunter and company will surely test a Mathieu-less defensive back core.3. “There’s no place like home; there’s no place like home”The Cardinals get homesick easily. With their only road wins coming in Florida against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on Sunday against the Titans, it’s crucial that they play as if they’re at University of Phoenix Stadium, where they’ve gone 6-1. Of course, none of the Cardinals’ previous losses have come to particularly easy opponents, nor easy environments — including the Super Dome, Candlestick Park and Lincoln Financial Field.LP Field and the Titans don’t look to be as trying as previous contests, but they’re neither as easy as the Cardinals’ two trips to Florida. Finding a way to cope with the environment, and the weather — which is expected to be in the 30s around the time of kickoff — will prove trying for Arians and team. Comments   Share   Big plays in the first half will make things all the more trying for the Cardinals, who will be facing more pressure than their opponent in the game who will also be dealing with colder, foreign temperatures than they’re used to.Getting pressure on Palmer will likely be key to this effort, as will the Titans’ ability to hold playmakers like Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Ellington and Michael Floyd in check.3. Delanie WalkerA 6-foot, sixth-round pick out of Central Missouri State can be key to the game? Against the Cardinals’ defense, you’d better believe it.Tight ends have been the Cardinals’ kryptonite all season long, making Walker a key to the Titans’ offensive attack. Of course, Walker is no Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis or Jared Cook — all of whom torched the Cardinals earlier in the season — but his playmaking ability against the most vulnerable part of an otherwise strong defense means more than can be stated.Walker has 45 receptions for 454 yards so far this season. Keys for the Titans1. Stretch the fieldThe Cardinals may have one of the top rushing defenses in the NFL, but Chris Johnson and the Titans’ ability to establish the run and draw in the opposition’s secondary will be crucial for the offense. Despite Mathieu’s absence, the Cardinals’ defense is too good to get much traction against if they don’t have to worry about a rushing attack. Johnson, the AFC’s fourth-leading rusher, has 820 yards on the year, but has been held to under four yards per carry over 217 rushing attempts. In 13 games this year, the running back has already surpassed last season’s receiving numbers, however, logging 277 yards and three touchdowns through the air. Short, efficient plays for the Titans must precede the chunk yard plays.2. Early environmentThe longer the Titans can keep the home crowd engaged in the game, the better, given the Cardinals’ road struggles. An early lead at home may prove the difference for the Titans, just as it has in each of the Cardinals’ opponents home wins this season. First half deficits against the Rams, Saints, 49ers, and Eagles were too much for the Cardinals to overcome. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Such is the case for the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Nashville, Tenn. as they face the Tennessee Titans. Must-win? Basically, but not technically.The Cardinals, themselves, feel that they have to win out in order to make the playoffs, although a loss on Sunday doesn’t completely knock them out of the picture.That they control their own destiny down the stretch, however, is the bigger point. And Sunday’s game at LP Field in Nashville looks to be the most winnable of the three remaining games, with others coming against the Seattle Seahawks on the road and the San Francisco 49ers.The Titans, 5-8, have struggled throughout the season, and especially of late — losing their last game at Mile High 51-28 to the Denver Broncos and dropping four of their last five and seven of their last nine.The Cardinals, meanwhile, at 8-5, are riding something of a hot streak into Music City, with a +46 point scoring margin over their previous three games, including a 30-10 blowout win over the division rival St. Louis Rams their last time out.Keys for the Cardinals1. Protection packagesOffensive line woes have been the yarn in Glendale for each of the previous two seasons — weaving their way into most Cardinals happenings. Did the Cardinals win? They must have done well with pass protection. They lost? The offensive line will eat at least a slice of the pie of blame. So coach Bruce Arians’ recently-upped utilization of tight ends and backs for quarterback Carson Palmer’s protection. As ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski pointed out following the Cardinals’ 41-10 over the Indianapolis Colts, “(Palmer) feels comfortable with multiple tight ends on the field; I think he feels comfortable because he feels protected.” Added Jaws: the Cardinals tight ends do “a tremendous job in pass protection in some very well-designed scheme protections.”With the Cardinals’ seemingly unavoidable O-line struggles, helping Palmer as much as possible — as Arians, offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin and company did in the team’s eye-opening 30-10 win last weekend — should find itself atop the team’s offensive priority list. 2. Antoine Cason, Javier Arenas and Jerraud PowersWith rookie sensation Tyrann Mathieu out for the season with an ACL and LCL injury, roles are shifting.Among those most affected by Mathieu’s absence are defensive backs Javier Arenas, Jerraud Powers and Antoine Cason. And Cason, in particular, will see the most dramatic increase in playing time, after spending most of the Cardinals’ previous 13 games on special teams, despite playing defense in all 16 of the San Diego Chargers’ games last year.

Greek Cypriot arrested in the north

first_imgA 58-year-old Greek Cypriot man was detained in the north in connection with illegal entry and exit, Turkish Cypriot Kibris newspaper reported on Wednesday.Ioannis Kyriakides is accused of entering the north from Ayios Dhometios checkpoint on Monday morning without following proper procedures.He then tried to exit the north from Strovilla checkpoint in Famagusta the same way. As he was passing through, the Turkish Cypriot authorities activated the bollards used to stop vehicles.The man claimed that no one stopped him at Ayios Dhometios checkpoint, and after driving around Nicosia, Kyrenia and Kythrea, he went to Famagusta to cross over to the south.He said because the bollards were raised, he crashed his car and got out and ran towards the Dhekelia British base, where he was stopped and arrested before being handed over to the Turkish Cypriot authorities.Kyriakides claimed the Turkish Cypriot authorities tried to kill him and objected to a three-day remand.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppTake Online Privacy on a whole New levelFigLeaf Beta AppUndoYahoo Search | Search AdsResearch About Hepatitis C – The Early Signs Of Hepatitis CYahoo Search | Search AdsUndoMemory Care | Search AdsLuxury Memory Care Assisted Living Facilities in Rowland HeightsMemory Care | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Government keeps up pressure on BoC

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouTHE BANK OF CYPRUS appeared no closer on Monday to resolving the stalemate caused by the unwillingness of the lender’s board to concede to pressure from the government and the Central Bank to recapitalise.“For the government the issue of capital increases by commercial banks is a matter of strategic importance to the Cypriot economy,” government spokesman Nikos Christodoulides warned on Monday. “It is being handled by the Central Bank and we are monitoring developments closely.”He was referring to a row between the BoC’s board of directors and executive management, festering for months but surfacing on Friday, over how and when the lender should proceed to issuing new capital.Despite repeated winks and nudges from Finance Minister Harris Georgiades for the BoC to press ahead with issuing new capital, culminating in a loud and clear message to the same tune from Central Bank governor Chrystalla Georghadji last week, a 10-hour session on Friday by the lender’s board offered no concrete pledge to do so.She reportedly decided to address a letter to the board, warning members that if stalling tactics are not abandoned, heads may have to roll.On Sunday Archbishop Chrysostomos weighed in on the top-level conflict at the BoC. The archbishopric is one of the parties that took a hit following the forced conversion of uninsured deposits to equity and is keen on seeing the bank standing on its feet again.“I observe two camps, each aiming at controlling the Bank of Cyprus,” Chrysostomos said after performing a church service on Sunday. “That is the absolute worst each camp can offer the bank. Everyone needs to work together – the board and executive management.”To this end, he said, he would arrange various meetings over the next few days, including with the BoC’s board and Georghadji.“I might even need to bother the president,” the Archbishop said. “Our country has suffered enough. Many have lost their life savings in the banks and there is no need for further contraction. We don’t need to destroy the country,” he added.But for all his good intentions, Chrysostomos was unable to offer any solutions bridging the fundamental gaps separating the two sides. While acknowledging the need for a capital issue by the lender, he also set out restraining conditions that lie at the heart of the conflict.“If some think we will sell the bank for peanuts, or that some funds will step in and buy the bank cheap, I think they should not be allowed to,” he said.It is understood that some board members, who represent unwilling depositors-turned-shareholders following a bail-in on uninsured deposits in March 2013, oppose a new share issue that would dilute the existing structure to incorporate new shareholders. Instead, they argue, existing shareholders should be granted some time to raise the cash that would be required in a future capital increase.But time, the government and Georghadji counter, is a scarce commodity at this juncture. The BoC needs to build a capital buffer so that it can withstand imminent shocks, as well as in preparation for the upcoming EU-wide stress tests this fall.Following partial repayment of a €1.8 billion government bailout bond issued in favour of now-defunct Laiki Bank – issued approximately a year before it was absorbed by the BoC – that would inject some €950 million into the bank, its core-tier 1 capital is expected to hover around 11 per cent, comfortably above the 8 per cent threshold that stress test baseline scenario calls for.But the bank is plagued by a potential time bomb with regard to non-performing loans that might need to be written off as losses. These comprise roughly half its total loan portfolio and the bank has been having a hard time curbing their rise, posing a significant risk as any loss provisions on these loans will be made against its available capital reserves.Secondly, the government and Georghadji desperately need the bank to start resuming its role in the economy – extending loans and other credit. The country’s largest lender has been unable to play this role since its major depositors were bailed in to help recapitalise it, to the hindrance of the whole economy. Any serious attempt at economic recovery necessarily involves enhancing the bank’s liquidity buffers through the injection of fresh capital. You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Indian Express AppWritten by Benita Chacko | Mumbai | Published: May 1 2017 2:04 am Top News Mumbai is a step closer towards having its own ropeway transport with the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the ropeway over the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) connecting Thane and Borivali almost complete “The project survey is complete and Tata Realty and Infrastructure Ltd the consultants for the project should submit the DPR by the end of May It will be a cost-effective public transport facility and will also promote tourism as passengers will get a bird’s eye view of the national park” said Pravin Darade Additional Metropolitan Commissioner Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) Proposed to be a 9-km ropeway the Rs 1000-crore project will provide east-west connectivity between the two suburbs and drastically reduce travel time As a mode of public transport it is touted to be at par with the metro and can transport 4000-5000 people per hour in one direction The exact location of the ropeway is yet to be finalised and the consultants are considering several options “Since it is an environmentally sensitive area we are looking at options that will cause the least amount of damage to the environment” said an official working on the DPR With most ropeways in the country serving tourism purposes this ropeway might be one of the few that will help passengers commute to work Meanwhile the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has also begun the survey for an 11-km underground tunnel that will run under the SGNP connecting Borivali and Thane The construction of the tunnel will help motorists avoid the current 23-km drive through Ghodbunder Road in the process decongesting the road Speaking about the need for both the projects connecting the same places Kiran Kurundkar Joint Managing Director MSRDC said “With Mumbai’s population whatever we plan can fall short The two modes of transport will complement each other The tunnel will ensure faster connectivity for vehicular traffic whereas the ropeway will be for public transport” Transport expert Ketan Goradia agreed that the city needs east-west connectivity However he said that the government should focus on cheaper projects first “The tunnel is a good idea as it will improve east-west connectivity With the western suburbs saturated more residences are moving to the east However the focus right now should be on the Goregaon-Kanjurmarg road through Aarey rather than Borivali-Thane Also the ropeway has a very low capacity and has little to offer besides its tourism value” he said Environmentalists too have raised concerns saying any development project passing through a national park is bound affect the environment However both the MMRDA and the MSRDC claim the projects are environment-friendly “The tunnel will be 100-metre underground and will not disturb the flora and fauna in any way The animals will not hear any vehicular sound The tunnel begins and ends outside the national park and we have found places where there are no trees Only some shrubs will have to be cut” said Kurundkar Environmentalist Clara Correia said instead of both the projects the government should choose the one less damaging “Between the two the ropeway would be a more environment-friendly project However it also depends on how they implement it as the construction activity itself will disturb the ecosystem There is life underground as well and the tunnel will ruin it Also it will cause damage to the water table in the area In India plans are often not followed Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) reports are prepared but more often than not they give favourable views The suggested mitigation measures are also rarely followed” she said
