No parole for 70 years for man who killed 3 women in

first_imgPEMBROKE, Ont. – A 60-year-old man convicted of killing three women during an hour-long rampage in the Ottawa Valley two years ago has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 70 years.Basil Borutski was convicted late last month of first-degree murder in the deaths of 36-year-old Anastasia Kuzyk and 48-year-old Nathalie Warmerdam, and of second-degree murder in slaying of Carol Culleton.Culleton was strangled with a television coaxial cable and Kuzyk and Warmerdam were both killed with a 12-gauge shotgun fired at close range. They all died within about an hour of each other at their residences in Renfrew County on the morning of Sept. 22, 2015.Court heard Borutski shot Kuzyk while she cowered behind her kitchen island and chased Warmerdam around her farmhouse before shooting her at point-blank range as she tried to run up the stairs.He broke into Culleton’s cottage, picked up a coaxial cable and wrapped it around the 66-year-old’s neck six times, the Crown told court.Justice Robert Maranger ruled Wednesday that Borutski will serve two consecutive life sentences — which each carry a parole ineligibilty of 25 years — for first-degree murder followed by at least 20 years of a life sentence for second-degree murder.The Crown had asked for the severe penalty at a sentencing hearing on Tuesday as families of Borutski’s victims appealed to the judge to imprison him for life.“I beg the court to keep this man away from my family and society for the rest of his living days,” Warmerdam’s father Frank John Hopkins said in a statement read to the court.Borutski refused to make any comments or submissions and showed no emotion as the families of his three victims told of their heartbreak through victim impact statements.“There is a huge hole in our lives and our family. Daily we walk under a black cloud,” said her mother Maz Tracey.Five impact statements were read in court Tuesday including one from Lorraine Wallace, a friend of Carol Culleton.“All her dreams cannot be realized because of you,” she said.A community impact statement read by Jennifer Valiquette and Joanne Brooks with End Violence Against Women in Renfrew County told how that September day in 2015 changed the lives of many.“For many in the violence against women community, September 22 is known as the Renfrew County massacre. They no longer feel safe walking on the rural roads or hiking in the bush.”Prior to the murders, Borutski — who chose to forgo having a lawyer during the trial, but barely said a word during the proceedings — had twice spent time in jail after two of the women accused him of assault and uttering threats.Following his conviction, Leighann Burns, executive director of Ottawa-based women’s shelter Harmony House, said Borutski’s reputation as a violent and dangerous person was well-known in and around the Ontario community of Wilno, not far from where the three women lived.In a videotaped interview played at trial, Borutski expressed a degree of remorse for his actions, which he said were fuelled by rage at what he considered to be the lies and betrayals of his victims.In the video, he described how he was acting like a “zombie” on the day in question, saying he’d originally planned to take his own life, but decided against it because he believed it was wrong to take an innocent life.“I killed them because they were not innocent,” Borutski says in the video. “They were guilty. I was innocent. I’ve done nothing wrong.”He argued that Kuzyk and Warmerdam lied in court when they helped get him convicted of threatening and assaulting them and Culleton lied about her relationship with him and then shunned him for another man.“Borutski would have us cast some sort of biblical justification upon what is really nothing more than a callous, premeditated act of revenge, an act of murder in any way you define it,” Crown attorney Jeffery Richardson said in his closing statement to the jury. “There is no justification for what he did.”(CFRA, The Canadian Press)last_img read more

Insurance and bank stocks weigh on Toronto stock index as loonie edges

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s largest stock index finished in the red for a third consecutive trading session on Friday, as banks and insurance companies lost ground.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index fell 42.83 points to 16,039.26, with the financial sector down about three-quarters of a percentage point.All the big banks reported losses as did major insurers including Fairfax Financial Holdings (TSX:FFH), which saw its shares fall $13.76 or 1.98 per cent to $680.46 at the closing of markets.“The bank group is kind of taking a breather this week in particular after having a pretty good year to date. I think most bank shares are up 10 per cent this year,” said Cavan Yie, a portfolio manager at Manulife Asset Management.“But what I think you’re seeing is investors kind of taking money off the table ahead of 2018, potentially ahead of some mortgage rule changes in Canada which are likely to impact loan growth for 2018. You’ll see lower mortgage originations and potentially lower-than-expected bank earnings.”Canada’s banking regulator reported last month it’s going ahead with a new stress test for home buyers who don’t need mortgage insurance but who will soon have to prove they can make their payments if interest rates rise.The move is expected to reduce the maximum amount buyers will be able to borrow to buy a home, even if they have a down payment of 20 per cent or more, starting in January.South of the border, markets were mixed and relatively flat a day after Wall Street was caught off guard by a proposed delay in President Donald Trump’s proposed tax plans. On Wednesday, Senate Republicans said they’re rolling out their own tax bill, which would delay Trump’s corporate tax rate cut until 2019, instead of 2018 under the House bill.“There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the current regime in the U.S.,” Yie said. “Investors are taking a wait-and-see approach and not reacting right away.”The Dow Jones industrial average declined 39.73 points to 23,422.21 and the S&P 500 index edged down 2.32 points to 2,582.30. The Nasdaq composite index eked out a 0.89 of a point rise to 6,750.94.In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 78.85 cents US, up 0.06 of a U.S. cent. That marks the loonie’s third straight day of gains against a weakening greenback.On the commodities front, the December crude contract gave back 43 cents at US$56.74 per barrel and the December natural gas contract was up a cent at US$3.21 per mmBTU.The December gold contract fell $13.30 to US$1,274.20 an ounce and the December copper contract was down a cent to US$3.08 a pound.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.last_img read more

The Most Consistent Hitter In Baseball History

Gary Matthews1974- Braggo Roth1916- Roy Campanella1951-55.325.269.312.207.318.315 According to Fangraphs, none of the 21,214 other qualifying five-year periods1Using a minimum of 350 plate appearances in each season and including overlapping periods for the same hitters. is even close. Journeyman outfielder Nori Aoki had a total movement of 9 points between 2012 and 2016, which comes in second but is still more than double Davis’s. And only one other hitter in history finished with the same average in three straight years — Mookie Wilson for the Mets, hitting exactly .276 from 1983 to 1985.2With an average of .279 in 1982 and .271 in 1981, Wilson’s total movement in the period was 11 points. Just 178 hitters have had the same rounded average in two consecutive seasons.To get a better sense of how bizarre Davis’s consistency is, consider FanGraphs’s finding that batting average does not even stabilize until 910 at-bats. (By “stabilize,” we mean getting to the point at which a player’s batting average is roughly halfway explained by his own skill, with the other half still owed to random variance.) Of course, batters never get 910 at-bats in a 162-game season, which is why batting average has typically been the bane of projection systems. Incredibly, a player’s current batting average is actually a poor predictor of his future batting average even in the same season, never mind from season to season.So wild swings are perfectly normal. The average movement for the entire sample is about 100 points in every five-year period. A perfect example of average variance in the category is Babe Ruth from 1930 to 1934, when he hit, consecutively, .359, .373, .341, .301 and .288.But in 2018, we are witnessing history in batting average on both sides of the spectrum. The exact opposite of Davis is Bryce Harper of the Nationals. He’s tied as the third most volatile hitter ever over a five-year period. Harper’s roller coaster ride in the statistic has taken him from .273 in 2014 to .330 in 2015, back to .243 in 2016 then up to .319 last season. This year, Harper is down to .214. That represents a total movement of 325 points. Harper was bested in extreme variance only by Brooklyn Dodger Hall of Fame catcher Roy Campanella, who had a 358-point swing from 1952 to 1956 and a 338-point swing from 1953 to 1957, and King Kelly of the Chicago White Stockings and Boston Beaneaters, who had a total movement of 331 points from 1883 to 1887. Kelly is also in the Hall of Fame, and Campanella was a three-time National League MVP, an award Harper won unanimously in 2015.

After hitting exactly that in each of the past three seasons, Davis appears to have broken free of the .247 spell: He’s hitting .248.Baseball’s measure of hitting success has always been rounded to the third decimal. Technically, the Oakland Athletics outfielder has hit .2474489796, .2468468468 and .2473498233 respectively from 2015 to 2017, and this year his average is all the way up to .2484848485. In his only other year of at least 350 plate appearances (2014), he hit .2435129741, or .244. Regardless of how you round these numbers, they make Davis the most consistent hitter in baseball history over any five-year stretch. The total movement of his three-digit average — calculated by simply adding the absolute differences from season to season across five years — is just 4 points (that’s .004 in nonbaseball speak). And the average movement of his average is an absurdly low four-fifths of a point per season. SpanYear 12345TOTal Movement Nori Aoki2013- So a lack of consistency doesn’t imply that a hitter is bad — though you may not want to invest in him in your fantasy baseball leagues just on the basis of last season’s numbers. The people who “owned” Kelly when he hit .288 in 1885 between two years leading the National League in hitting with an average north of .350 doubtlessly took a bath in their hypothetical, old-timey roto leagues. Harper’s owners this year are echoing their pain, 133 years later.But Davis is Mr. Reliable. You expect .247 and he gives you .247 — or maybe .248. At worst, .244. Davis is a beacon of consistency in what’s otherwise a wilderness of batting average randomness.Check out our latest MLB predictions. read more

NuSTAR un nouveau télescope spatial pour observer les trous noirs

first_imgNuSTAR : un nouveau télescope spatial pour observer les trous noirsLa NASA doit placer ce mercredi 13 juin un nouveau télescope à rayons X en orbite. Baptisé NuSTAR, cet appareil offrira une résolution exceptionnelle et devrait permettre aux chercheurs, en scrutant mieux que jamais l’univers, de mieux comprendre la façon dont il a évolué. Dans un premier temps, c’est aux trous noirs que le télescope s’intéressera.Ce mercredi 13 juin, dans l’après-midi, la NASA lancera dans l’espace son télescope NuSTAR, un appareil à rayons X qui observera l’Univers avec une précision jamais égalée. C’est depuis la base américaine des îles Marshall que le télescope décollera. Accompagné d’une fusée Pegasus qui le mettra en orbite, il sera éjecté à 11.900 mètres d’altitude par un avion Lockeed L-1011, un tri-réacteur répondant au nom de Stargazer.C’est vers 15H30 GMT que la fusée sera larguée. Elle devra alors emporter le télescope et le placer sur orbite terrestre basse à 600 kilomètres, indique la NASA dans un communiqué. Grâce à NuSTAR, “nous verrons les objets célestes les plus chauds, les plus denses et ceux qui sont le plus chargés d’énergie d’une façon fondamentalement nouvelle”, s’enthousiasme Fiona Harrison, la principale responsable scientifique du projet, citée par l’AFP. Le télescope spatial complétera les données déjà fournies par deux autres appareils à rayons X, le XMM-Newton de l’Agence spatiale européenne et le Chandra de la NASA.Comme l’expliquait le mois dernier le directeur de la division d’astrophysique au siège de l’agence Paul Hertz, après que la mission prévue en mars a été reportée, “NuSTAR va nous aider à comprendre comment notre univers a évolué depuis le stade du Big Bang pour devenir aussi complexe aujourd’hui”. Ce télescope est unique en son genre.

Neon Genesis Evangelion Completes Netflixs Anime Ambitions

first_img ‘One Punch Man’ Get A Video Game, Probably Has More Punches‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting… Stay on target You deserve a fair warning. The Netflix premiere of Neon Genesis Evangelion, the heady mech anime to end all anime, is upon us. All 26 episodes episodes and more will hit the streaming TV service with a brand new English dub. Discourse will never be the same. Get in the robot. Watch the show.Netflix never wanted to just be a new type of TV channel with its original content. It wanted to be an entirely new type of TV offering everything any viewer could want from superhero crossovers to goth puppet cooking shows to subversive comedies to overrated dramas. And while it is a mistake, lots of viewers want anime, and Netflix has delivered by streaming some of the best classics and commissioning great original works like Devilman Crybaby. They even got Jaden Smith involved.However, even an anime skeptic like me can recognize that some series stands above others. So it’s a big deal that Netflix has announced Gainax’s mecha deconstruction Neon Genesis Evangelion is coming to the streaming TV service in Spring 2019.The 26-episode Neon Genesis Evangelion run from 1995 is coming to Netflix along with several films including End of Evangelion, or as I know it the one with the big head poster. We don’t know any release date beyond Spring 2019.Having not seen Eva myself yet (I’m looking forward to finally seeing what the big deal is on Netflix) my attempts to describe it probably won’t do it justice. But from what I understand based on people I trust, the show uses its stock “giant robots vs aliens” premise to make intelligent and surreal (Watchmen-esque?) commentary on its own fantasy genre that’s been a Japanese mainstay for decades. And considering how widely acclaimed it is, it must have done it pretty well.I don’t mean to clown so much on this honestly important piece of animation history. It’s a legitimately exciting announcement! Finally, I can understand why these parody Seinfeld/Evangelion “Cruel Angel’s Thesis” music videos are so funny. And I have a ton of respect for Eva creator Hideaki Anno who later brought this postmodern kaiju energy into the awesome, heady Shin Godzilla.It’s just that people treat Eva’s legacy with such serious reverence, I just can’t help but laugh a little bit, even while keeping an open mind. Mostly, I’m excited that soon we’ll all be able to easily watch Neon Genesis Evangelion on Netflix instead of paying “30 bucks for two episodes per VHS tape from Suncoast Video mode.”last_img read more

Dairy Farmers Urged To Improve Pasture Management

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:Hugh Graham, Jamaica Dairy Development Board Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Jan. 28 (JIS): Dairy farmers are being encouraged to use proper pasture management techniques in order to boost milk production and improve herd quality. Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jamaica Dairy Development Board (JDDB), Hugh Graham, made the call, while speaking to JIS News at the launch of the ‘Drink Real Milk’ educational campaign at the Terra Nova All Suite Hotel in St. Andrew today (January 28).He noted, for example, that farmers do not typically fertilise their pastures. “They will fertilise other crops but never the pastures. The grass and the legumes on the pastures are crops and have to be treated as such, so we have to look at how to manage the soil, how to manage the crop so you can maximise yield,” he pointed out.He noted that once pasture yield is maximised “you are able to have better nutrition for the animals and the animals will, in turn, give you more milk or more meat,” Mr. Graham told JIS News that programmes are already in place to provide assistance to farmers in this regard.He said farmers are also receiving support to combat recurrent drought conditions, with new varieties of fodder provided.“We have new drought-tolerant varieties (such as) brachiaria species (and) the mulato two…those we have introduced quite successfully in some areas,” he said.He informed that farmers are also being assisted to establish fodder banks, “for instance, sugar cane, which they will grow and use during that period when the drought is on. We have …included equipment where you chop the forage up to feed it to the animals, thereby you improve on the digestibility of the feed.”Mr. Graham said the JDDB also provides technical assistance such as the modernising and upgrading of milking and cooling equipment. In addition, players in the industry are benefiting from training to ensure that they adhere to best practices and international production standards.Mr. Graham informed that there are approximately 100 dairy farmers in the island, who supply milk to processors. “Our statistics really only cover the supply to the processors because under Jamaican law, you cannot sell unpasteurised milk and that is why from the farm, it’s delivered or the processors pick it up and then they take it to the next level,” he pointed out.Meanwhile, the JDDB CEO said the agency will continue to partner with the agricultural schools and the 4-H clubs to establish their dairies as centres for best practices.“We have already delivered 25 heifers to all except the Jamaica 4-H Clubs and we are working very closely with them in terms of training,” he informed.The ‘Drink Real Milk’ campaign is a partnership involving CB Group (through Nutramix), Seprod Limited (through Serge Island), Newport Fersan Jamaica Limited and the Jamaica Dairy Development Board.The goals of the campaign are: to increase awareness and demand for Jamaican milk; produce 20 million litres locally annually; and create a sustainable and self- sufficient industry.The JDDB was established in 2009 to promote and foster the development of the dairy sector with particular emphasis on promoting local milk production and achieving efficiencies in the production, processing, marketing and other trade in dairy products.

Assemblymember announces bill aimed at banning tackle football at levels lower than

first_imgAssemblymember announces bill aimed at banning tackle football at levels lower than high school Among the parenting decisions the state regulates: if your child is in a car or booster seat, gets a vaccine, wears a helmet, smokes a cigarette, drinks alcohol, gets a tattoo, goes to school, buys a gun, gambles. I’m ok with adding plays tackle football to the list.— Lorena (@LorenaSGonzalez) February 9, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Organized tackle football would be banned at levels lower than high school under a bill announced Thursday by San Diego Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, who says the rule would follow medical research in an effort to protect kids from the lasting effects of traumatic brain injury.The bill would allow only high-contact elements of the sport in high school-level leagues to protect young athletes from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a disease found in people who have had multiple head injuries. The disorder has been especially common among football players. The onset of the disease occurs years after the injuries and symptoms can include depression, memory loss and dementia. It is diagnosable only after death.“The research is clear — when children participate in high-impact, high-contact sports, there is a 100 percent risk of exposure to brain damage,” said Dr. Bennet Omalu, author of the book “Concussion” about CTE. “Once you know the risk involved in something, what’s the first thing you do? Protect children from it.”Since 2014 the state has put in place stricter protocols that aim to protect young athletes from head injury. Among the requirements of a law passed last year is that athletes, coaches and parents receive educational information about the signs and symptoms of concussion and protocols in dealing with such injuries, which include being evaluated by a doctor.But Gonzalez Fletcher said such rules don’t go far enough.“Head injuries sustained at a young age can harm kids for the rest of their lives,” she said. “Developing skills through flag football before high school is sound public policy from a health and safety standpoint.”She cited several NFL greats who got their start in non-contact leagues: Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Lawrence Taylor, Jim Brown and Tom Brady.The bill will be considered by the Assembly this spring. No states have passed such a law, though similar rules are being considered in Illinois, Maryland and New York, according to Gonzalez Fletcher.The bill is co-sponsored by Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento.

Vermont Voters Hope to Block Air Guards Basing Plan

first_imgVoters in Burlington, Vt., on Tuesday approved a non-binding ballot referendum calling for the city council to ask the Air Force to cancel its plan to bring 18 F-35 fighter jets to the Vermont Air National Guard base at Burlington International Airport. Opponents of the Air Force’s basing decision — whose efforts to block the move previously failed in both state and federal courts — say the fifth-generation combat aircraft would be too loud and could pose a safety threat in a densely populated area. Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger said he would revisit the issue but added the city is “a long way” from making a request to the Air Force to change its plans, reports VTDigger.VTDigger photo by Bob LoCicero Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Top five investment options for salaried individuals

first_imgTop five investment options for salaried individualsIANSThe law of compounding works wonderfully for salaried people who invest regularly across savings instruments. Safety, return, liquidity and tax benefits are the major points a salaried investor is always on the lookout for. There are only few investment instruments that can offer these three together.Here are top five instruments the salaried can invest for decent returns.1. KTDFC Kerala Transport Development Finance Corporation Ltd (KTDFC) is a government of Kerala owned non-banking Company, which is registered under RBI. For 1 year the interest rate on a KTDFC deposit is 8.25 percent for one year, while it offers 8.50 percent for senior citizen deposits. As of now no banks excluding co-operative banks in the country offer these interest rates along with safety.2. PPF Public Provident Fund offers customers an interest rate of 7.8 percent currently. The interest earned under this instrument is tax-free and the amount invested qualifies for tax rebate under sec 80C of the Income Tax Act. In PPF the amount invested has a tenure of 15 years. Partial withdrawals can be made after 7 years.3. Company FD There is some AAA-rated Company fixed deposits which beat bank FD interest rates. For example, Bajaj Finance offers an interest rate up to 7.85 percent per annum. Mahindra Finance FDs offer an interest rate of 7.75 percent to 7.80 percent depending on the tenure of investment. Senior citizens are entitled to an extra 0.25 percent.4. Systematic Investment Plan SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) is based on the idea of averaging your investment cost over time. Under SIP the investor invests a constant amount every month and keep doing it for a long time. ICICI Prudential Value Discovery Fund, SBI Blue Chip Fund, and Aditya Birla Sun Life Frontline Equity Fund are popular SIPs.5. Bank FDs Tax-saving FDs are offered by many leading banks including SBI, HDFC, Axis, ICICI Bank, they may not offer the best rates on these fixed deposits. Most of the tax-saving FDs have a compulsory lock-in period of 5 years and maturity period from 5-10 years. Government banks are at best offering 7.5 percent interest on normal deposits.last_img read more

On the relationships between Bidwill Keim and Ari

first_imgOn the relationships between Bidwill, Keim and Arians:SK: “I think that the success we had was built on that trust and respect for each other, and it was a philosophy Michael had when he hired us. It’s ‘roll up our sleeves, stay in our lanes and let’s do everything we can to improve this organization,’ and that’s what we did. He was unbelievable to work with. There were times I’d go down to his office – and I’ve told you guys – I could tell him, ‘Hey, we’re signing this player. We’re signing that player.’ The response was, ‘Cool, baby. We’ll get him ready.’ That just doesn’t happen in this league. So many times you get questions of, ‘Why are we signing this guy?’ And then Bruce had that trust, and the fact that we had so many examples of success in late signings were because his lack of fear for playing players off the street. And I think it’s a credit to him and his coaching staff that we had success with those guys because they catered to their strengths and put them in positions to succeed, and again, that’s the special qualities that Bruce had – not only the ability to coach guys hard and get them to love them later. As Michael said, he started a great foundation for us. We have a great culture here, and there’s no doubt in my opinion that this coaching position is going to be certainly one of the best out there.” (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo On the future of the current staff:MB: “That’s something Steve and I will be talking about. A number of years ago, we went through a similar situation. Some of those folks are under contract, and we’re going to honor all of the contracts, obviously. We’ll be in the individual discussions with them as well.”On how Arians approached him with the decision and ensuing conversation:MB: “Ultimately, it was yesterday we learned the news. Then he announced it today, just now.”On if he tried to talk Arians out of retirement and if he can provide a glimpse of the conversation:MB: “I think the most important thing is respecting (his decision). This is a very difficult decision for him to come to, and when you look at everything around his decision, I want to respect his decision and not try to put any pressure on him to come back, especially with some of the health issues and things like that he’s had over the years. Steve and I love him, and we want to see him have a great retirement. And we know he has left the organization in a great place with a great culture here, the locker room and everything else. And we appreciate everything he’s done – two-time (NFL) Coach of the Year and he’s just done tremendous things for this organization. I want to see him be happy and healthy in his retirement, and none of us were going to put any sort of pressure on him. We want to see him be happy and healthy.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 3 Comments   Share   On if the relationship between Keim and Arians contributed to a successful run:SK: “It’s a number of things. I think the day that Michael put us both in this position was the fact that all three of us would have open lines of communication, which I’m proud that we did. And really, at the end of the day, we grew up 15 miles apart. I mean, how many times does that happen in the National Football League where you grew up that close to the person you work with? Very rarely did we have disagreements and when we did, we made Cardinal decisions and it was never personal. I think the best thing is looking back on the relationship and the way that he and Michael and I were able to communicate and how much pride I take in that.”On if Arians’ teams reflected his personality:SK: “No doubt. No doubt. When Jude asked that question to Michael, ‘What did you learn or take away?’ Mine was, ‘No risk it, no biscuit.’ No need to apologize for going for it and that’s what we’re going to continue to do as an organization. We’re going to continue to go for it.”On if there are any feelings as to whether QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald will return next season:MB: “I’m not going to speculate on anything, or speculate on speculators.” SK: “As a matter of fact, I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to talk to (Head Athletic Trainer) Tom Reed, but I know that Jermaine (Gresham) had the Achilles last night. Aside from that, I think there were some bumps and bruises but I don’t anticipate any major time lost or offseason issues.”On C/G Evan Boehm’s knee injury:SK: “As far as I know, it wasn’t serious. At least I haven’t heard that now. Many times, the MRI will prove whether that’s right or wrong. I haven’t gotten that information yet.”center_img On the need for a quarterback and if the new head coach will need a track record of developing quarterbacks:SK: “I don’t know necessarily ‘need to,’ but at the end of the day, having your next franchise quarterback is no different from finding the next head coach and that’s going through the process, like Michael talked about, being true to it, and at the end of the day, you usually know in your heart who the guy is. The biggest thing is that we just have to make sure we aggressively approach it and take that on. Like I said, five years ago we started with no head coach and no quarterback and I feel like that ended up pretty good. I think that’s the way we need to approach this, this time around.”On if Arians will help with the coaching search:MB: “As Steve said, his door’s open and my door’s open. Bruce has given his, and will keep his comments private, but he’s given us his advice and wants to see us be successful and he is going to continue to be a friend of the organization, there’s no doubt. I’m excited he’s got that perspective and we’ll continue to have the benefit of his best judgment.”On updates with the players who were injured yesterday: On what was learned during the hiring process five years ago that can be applied now:SK: “That’s a great question. Again, what questions to ask and the process. Some of the things along the way that has happened in my tenure as a GM that I wasn’t prepared for or was all new to me that I can impress upon this coach that, ‘If this happened, how would you handle this? How would you deal with it?’ And the same type of questions that Michael would ask as well. Make sure that once we face adversity, are we going to be on the same page? Are we going to stay in your lane? And again, so many experiences that I’ve gone through now put me in a better position to be able to ask those type of questions, and I know Michael feels the same way.”On whether the team has reached out to anybody yet or if it’s too early to have done so:MB: “We’re going to be reaching out right after this press conference. We’ve got some permission slips that are part of the NFL process that are filled out. I’ll be signing them and we’ll be sending them off, probably within 15 minutes of the end of this press conference.”On what will be Arians’ lasting imprint on him:MB: “The ones on the field. The Green Bay game, the playoff game, that was unbelievable. Yesterday in the locker room – I’ve been around this my whole life, and that was one of the more incredible locker room environments yesterday afternoon in Seattle and it was the first retirement that I’ve seen and it was pretty emotional in the locker room. I think what he’s done in the community, all the different Arians Family Foundation events that I’ve attended. All the moments where we’ve sat, the three of us up in the draft war room, late at night, early in the morning, just kicking around what we’re going to do and things along those lines. I think Steve and I have both learned a lot from Bruce. There are many lessons that I know I’ll be carrying forward and same with Steve. It’s just been an honor to work with him and that culture that he’s brought. I think he’s really helped us with this organization. I look forward to taking those lessons that we’ve learned and making a better organization as we moved forward.” Opening statement: Michael Bidwill: “Good morning everyone and Happy New Year. Obviously, you just heard from Coach Arians and I want to echo my thanks for coach. Five years ago, we met, and it’s been an incredible journey since then – got to the NFC Championship game, been to the playoffs and had tremendous success. He leaves the game today as the winningest coach in Cardinals history, both total wins and regular season wins. Really proud of the success he’s had with his coaching staff and all the players that have played for us, as well what he’s done in the community, just not on the field, but the off the field things that you heard about just a couple of minutes ago. The impact he’s had has been very real in the community and we couldn’t be more grateful to him and to his family for everything that they’ve done. He leaves the team in a very good position.Steve Keim: “Obviously, I would like to thank Bruce Arians, as well. Probably a lot like Adrian Wilson’s retirement, you can tell it’s kind of hard not to get choked up. I don’t think there is any doubt that it’s going to be hard to replicate the kind of relationship we all had with Bruce and how special he was to us. We had some special moments – a lot of wins and battled through adversity together – and there’s no doubt that he’ll always hold a special place in my heart. As Michael said, we’ll now start our search for the next head coach. It’s an exciting time. We feel like we have a great core of talent on this football team. We’ll make some improvements this offseason, as well, and hit the ground running for 2018.” Tempe, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians officially announced his retirement in a press conference at the Cardinals’ practice facility Monday.Following Arians’ announcement, Cardinals president Michael Bidwill and general manager Steve Keim answered questions regarding Arians and the future of the Cardinals’ organization.With the help from the Cardinals’ media relations staff, we’ve highlighted the conversation both Bidwill and Keim had with reporters on Monday. On desirable qualities of a head coaching candidate:MB: “I think we’re looking for primarily three things. We’re looking for a leader. We’re looking for somebody with a track record of performance – different places, different personnel, different things. And I think we’re looking for somebody that’s going to keep this culture of accountability moving forward.”On if the number of head coaching vacancies creates a sense of urgency:MB: “You look at the urgency, and a number of years ago, when we hired Coach Arians, there was all sorts of urgency. I think there were seven coaches hired that year, and he was the seventh. I’m glad we didn’t get caught up like it’s a race or something because I think we made the right decision by being patient, following our process, which is going to be thorough, and we’re going to do the same thing again.”On if an in-house candidate will be considered:MB: “We’re going to look at all sorts of folks. I’ll kick that over to Steve.”SK: “Yeah, I think we’ll leave no stone unturned, and that kind of information that you gain from the interview process is extremely helpful organizationally. You can learn different things from different organizations and how they do things. You’re always trying to look at self-growth and, ‘How can you get better as a franchise?’ And to me, this is a great opportunity for Michael and I to get out there and learn more about other teams.” Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Unplug means to literally tug an electric plug from a wall socket, but now, it also has a more metaphorical meaning, as in to disconnect from social media, he said.And yes, a snowflake is still a beautiful ice crystal that floats from the sky during winter, but it now also has a usually disparaging meaning of “someone who is overly sensitive,” according to Merriam-Webster’s definition.Some of the words have been around for decades, but are included in the dictionary because of increased usage.Omnicide, which means “the destruction of all life,” dates to the Cold War and was used in reference to the threat of nuclear annihilation, but lately it has been used to define the risk of other man-made disasters, primarily climate change.Popular culture —movies, TV and sports — is a common source of new words, such as buzzy, an adjective that literally means creating a buzz, such as a “buzzy new movie.”And then there’s EGOT, a noun that refers to an entertainer who has won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. Audrey Hepburn, Marvin Hamlisch, Mel Brooks and Whoopi Goldberg are among the elite group .Garbage time, those painful final minutes of a game when one team has an insurmountable lead and both teams empty their benches, has been around since 1960, but is on the latest list of new words.With the rapid advance of science, many new words come from the fields of technology and medicine.In the internet age when it’s sometimes difficult to determine whether the vast amounts of information we’re exposed to is accurate, the dictionary is a rock, Sokolowski said.“We need the dictionary more than ever now that we have information flying at us from all directions,” he said.Mark Pratt, The Associated Presslast_img read more
