Since then, she has spent her life within the cramped, chemically treated confines of a concrete tank, enduring trauma, loss, and sadness. But as Stodden reveals, Corky has a chance to go home — if SeaWorld retires her to a seaside sanctuary in her home waters, where she could feel the ocean currents and communicate with her brother and sister, Fife and Ripple, who are her only surviving family and swim freely nearby.“SeaWorld, take it from someone who has experienced great personal loss: Corky has suffered enough,” says Stodden. “Please, do the right thing and let her go home. The time is now.”For more information, please visit SeaWorldOfHurt.com.last_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – In one of the biggest crackdowns on the corrupting role of money in college basketball, 10 men — including a top Adidas executive and four assistant coaches — were charged Tuesday with using hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to influence star athletes’ choice of schools, shoe sponsors, agents, even tailors.Some of the most explosive allegations appeared to involve Louisville, one of college basketball’s biggest powerhouses, which is already on NCAA probation over a sex scandal.Federal prosecutors said at least three top high school recruits were promised payments of as much as $150,000, using money supplied by Adidas, to attend two universities sponsored by the athletic shoe company. Court papers didn’t name the schools but contained enough details to identify them as Louisville and Miami.“The picture of college basketball painted by the charges is not a pretty one,” said acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim, adding that the defendants were “circling blue-chip prospects like coyotes” and exploited them to enrich themselves.Prosecutors said that while some of the bribe money went to athletes and their families, some went to coaches, to get them to use their influence over their potentially NBA-bound players.The coaches charged are Chuck Person of Auburn, Emanuel Richardson of Arizona, Tony Bland of Southern California and Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State. Person and Evans were suspended, and Bland was placed on administrative leave.Bland appeared in court in Tampa, Florida, wearing handcuffs and ankle chains. He said little during a brief hearing other than to answer the judge’s questions and did not enter a plea.Richardson appeared in court in Tucson, Arizona, where he was set for release on $50,000 bond. His lawyer declined to comment.Those charged also include James Gatto, director of global sports marketing for basketball at Adidas; Rashan Michel, a maker of custom suits for some of the NBA’s biggest stars; and various financial advisers and managers.NCAA President Mark Emmert condemned the alleged misconduct, saying, “Coaches hold a unique position of trust with student-athletes and their families, and these bribery allegations, if true, suggest an extraordinary and despicable breach of that trust.”Since 2015, the FBI has been investigating the influence of money on coaches and players in the NCAA. Kim noted a special FBI hotline was set up and asked anyone aware of additional corruption to come forward.Prosecutors said the coaches took bribes to use their “enormous influence” to steer players toward certain financial advisers and agents.Most if not all of the 10 defendants were under arrest. Lawyers for Gatto and two of the coaches did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It was unclear whether Evans had an attorney.Adidas said it was unaware of any misconduct by an employee and vowed to fully co-operate with authorities.Gatto and others are accused of funneling $100,000 to the family of a high school athlete to gain his commitment to play at Louisville and to sign with Adidas once he became a professional. Louisville and Adidas announced a 10-year, $160 million extension of their sponsorship deal over the summer.The player’s name was not released, but details in the criminal complaint make it clear investigators were referring to Brian Bowen, who did not return messages seeking comment.Louisville coach Rick Pitino said the allegations “come as a complete shock to me.”The development comes as Louisville is appealing a four-year NCAA probation over a scandal involving escorts hired for players and recruits. The scandal could cost the school its 2013 national championship.In court papers Tuesday, the FBI said it recorded a July meeting at which an assistant coach at Louisville was briefed on a plan to funnel thousands of dollars to a potential high school recruit. The participants in the meeting noted they had to be careful because Louisville was on probation.“We gotta be very low key,” said the coach, according to the FBI.Investigators said agents wiretapped a call in which Gatto and another defendant discussed an unidentified coach at Miami requesting that Adidas pay as much as $150,000 to another recruit, in part to prevent him from accepting a similar offer from a rival apparel company.Louisville interim President Gregory Postel confirmed the university has been informed it is part of the investigation and said, “Any violations will not be tolerated.”Miami said it will co-operate with authorities, while USC said it appointed former FBI Director Louis J. Freeh to conduct an internal investigation.The investigation began after Martin Blazer, a Pittsburgh-based financial adviser to pro athletes, began co-operating with authorities in 2014. Blazer, accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of taking money from clients without permission, pleaded guilty this month to fraud and other crimes.He admitted making payments and loans to NCAA athletes as far back as 2000 to get them to hire him.Person, associate head coach at Auburn, was drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 1986 and played for five NBA teams over 13 seasons.Prosecutors said Person accepted about $91,500 in bribes from Blazer last year to steer clients to him when they reached the NBA. Some payments were alleged to have been arranged by Michel, a former NBA referee turned high-end clothier.Person was quoted by prosecutors as telling one player: “The most important part is that you … don’t say nothing to anybody … don’t share with your sisters, don’t share with any of the teammates, that’s very important ’cause this is a violation … of rules. But this is how the NBA players get it done.”Prosecutors said Evans solicited at least $22,000 over the past two years, while Richardson in February was paid $20,000 in bribes, some of which he kept for himself and some of which he gave to at least one high school athlete to get him to play for Arizona.___Associated Press writers Fred Goodall in Tampa, Florida, Gary Graves in Louisville, Kentucky, Larry Lage in Detroit and Fred Lief in New York contributed.last_img read more

Rabat – Leader of Justice and Development Party (PJD) and former head of government, Abdelilah Benkirane, has once again addressed the issue of the party’s current status following the upheavals of recent months which have seen the PJD’s influence in Moroccan politics wane.‘In life, you can’t always win,” said Benkirane during a meeting with the PJD’s members abroad on Saturday. “Our rivals are not throwing up hands.” He added that “Democratically, we defeated them. But they had to try to beat us in away or another.”Benkirane was making a clear reference to the PJD’s victory in the general elections of October 2016 when the Islamists won 125 seats. Still, despite that unprecedented victory in the history of Moroccan elections, the party could not form the coalition it wanted. After months of unfruitful negotiations with other parties, Benkirane was dismissed by King Mohammed VI in Marchand the current Head of Government and President of the PJD’s national council, Saad Eddine El Othmani, was appointed in his place. The coalition formed by El Othmani, comprised of six parties, had previously been rejected by Benkirane.In addition to the disappointing outcome of the government coalition and the unpopular management of the crisis in the Rif region, internal divisions within the Islamist party grew.Despite criticism, however, the PJD still proclaims its “reformist” agenda. On Friday, during the national convention of Attajdid Atolabi, a student union with close ties with the PJD, El Othmani stated his government party will follow in the foot steps of Benkirane’s government (2011-2016) in pursuing reform. The same discourse was echoed by Benkirane on Saturday. The Islamist leader said the reason they are engaged in politics is to enforce reforms.“Did we achieve something or not? If we didn’t, why Moroccans voted for us?” he asked.Despite the fact that the PJD, and especially its leader, retain some popularity among Moroccans, many members of the party are worried that the increasingly unpopular PJD-led government will gradually make the party lose its previous achievements. read more

Rabat – Morocco’s Ministry of Labor and the Ministry in Charge of Moroccans Living Abroad signed an agreement on Monday to monitor the situation of strawberry pickers in Spanish farms.The agreement entails the founding of a joint commission to organize visits to the Spanish farms where an estimated 19,000 strawberry pickers work, to examine their working conditions in the company of Spanish authorities, reported Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).The workers who have already undergone training to harvest strawberries and other berries this season will receive a wage of €37 per 6.5 hours each day in addition to accommodations. The workers were scheduled to leave Morocco for Spain on Tuesday. Upon their return, they will be accompanied by Morocco’s National Agency for Employment and Skills (ANAPEC).Last year, Spain agreed to hire over 10,000 Moroccan agricultural workers to pick berries for the April to June harvest season. In May, some Moroccan women working in Huelva farms filed complaints against their employers for sexual assault.Read Also: 19,000 Moroccan Seasonal Workers to Go to Spain in 2019News of the assault allegations broke internationally. In June, Moroccan and Spanish women rallied in Huelva in a march of solidarity with the seasonal workers, denouncing the sexual assaults.Later, a Moroccan-Spanish delegation visited the farms to monitor the workers’ situation.Before that, the Moroccan Ministry of Employment had maintained that “no specific case of abuse or violation against Moroccan workers was found.”While in previous seasons, 11,000 went to Spain’s Huelva province to harvest and fulfilled their commitment to return home to Morocco afterward, some did not comply with the condition.In October, some 2,500 (17 percent) of the workers declared their wish to stay in Spain, according to the Moroccan-Spanish commission, which had organized the workers’ travel last season. read more

first_imgIn the largest ever study looking at the genetic basis for intelligence, researchers at the University of Edinburgh and Harvard University discovered hundreds of new genes linked to brain power. Previous studies have suggested that between 50 per cent and 75 per cent of intelligence is inherited, and the rest comes through upbringing, friendship groups and education. That figure was calculated by studying identical twins who share the same DNA, therefore any differences in IQ between them must be non-genetic. Intelligence could be measured with a swab of saliva, or drop of blood, after scientists showed for the first time that a person’s IQ can be predicted just by studying their DNA.center_img But nobody…last_img

first_imgAnchorage’s newest piece of equipment to handle the upcoming Vote By Mail system arrived in several boxes and cost $610,599 to purchase (photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media)Though still a few months away, Anchorage is getting ready for its first election set to be conducted by mail. In April, as residents pick a mayor and weigh in on a controversial public bathroom measure, they won’t be heading to the usual polling locations. Instead, they’ll be sending envelopes to a white, rectangular sorting machine that arrived at the city’s election center Monday morning.Listen nowMoving trucks backed up to an expansive warehouse that’s largely empty, save for clusters of new election equipment and computers. Half-a-dozen workers used wrenches and drills to take apart shoulder-high wooden crates. The cargo inside was metal sorting trays and a boxy machine that resembles a filing cabinet.The official name is the Bell and Howell Envelope Intake and Signature Verification System, Deputy Clerk Amanda Moser explained. Moser is responsible for overseeing much of the multi-year process converting Anchorage to a Vote By Mail election system. The Bell and Howell machine cost the municipality $610,599, and the Anchorage Assembly voted to include an additional $56,790 contract for installation and continued support.This particular piece of equipment is a crucial part of the new order. Voters will now get ballots sent to them 21 days before an election. They can turn ballots in at any time, either by mail, putting them inside giant metal deposit boxes distributed across town, or at a drop-off site. When the envelopes arrive at the election center by Ship Creek, the Bell and Howell machine starts comparing signatures to those on record, and sorting valid ballots to tabulate the votes.“We’ll be able to do this process for weeks before the election, and we’re going to be scanning the results but not finalizing them,” Moser said. “So on election night we will be able to report results as the polls close.”The change only affects local municipal elections, like those for mayor, assembly and school board seats, along with bonds and ballot propositions. For state and federal elections in November there will still be 122 polling sites set up across the city.Part of the reason the city started looking into Vote By Mail in 2014 was to save on the expense of staffing so many locations and maintaining the equipment. Local officials are hoping to increase turnout in local elections, which has been between just a third and a quarter of eligible voters in recent years.The traditional voting model also depends on the participation of hundreds of trained election workers.“We’re really beginning to see a lot of those folks retire,” Moser said. “It’s getting harder and harder to have enough workers to make election day happen.”Three states have already implemented Vote By Mail systems — Oregon, Washington and Colorado. The clerk’s office has been looking to them as models while it designs procedures of its own, and tries to get voters ready for the big change in how Anchorage residents pick their local government.More information on the Municipality’s Vote By Mail system is available here.last_img read more

first_imgIn the prokaryotic respiratory chain, the situation is more complicated. A complete pathway of electron flow has not yet been determined in the cell type due to its complexity. It is therefore necessary to understand the complete structure of a “supercomplex” involved during bacterial electron transfer to assist the goal. In the study, the researchers extracted and purified the complex from M. smegmatis to visualize the architecture using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) at a resolution of 3.5 Å. The structure provided crucial insights into the mechanism of direct electron transfer within a respiratory supercomplex. The dimensions of the supercomplex were in the range of 200 x 70 x 120 Å, in a symmetrized linear architecture completely different from previously reported respiratory supercomplexes. By composition, the linear dimeric CIV1-CIII2-CIV1 was arranged such that individual CIVs flanked the central CIII dimer on either side. The information revealed a direct link between enzymes during electron transfer, representing a new mode of respiratory chain catalysis. The detailed structural findings have potential to assist with antimycobacterial drug discovery efforts. The architecture of the supercomplex in its entirety: The cartoon representation shows the menaquinone/menaquinol (MK) in bright green colored solid spheres and phospholipids as yellow sticks. Credit: Science, doi: 10.1126/science.aat8923 The authors revealed the cryo-EM structure of a CIII-CIV respiratory supercomplex of the M. smegmatis bacteria. The intra-complex electron transfer pathway ranged from quinol oxidation in CIII to oxygen reduction in CIV. The results showed a new mechanism for bifurcating electron transfer to ensure completion of the Q cycle (the net movement of protons across a lipid bilayer) for energy transduction. The association of a superoxide dismutase in the architecture of the system can protect against oxidative damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS). The architecture of quinone binding sites also provided a framework for future studies in structure-based antimicrobial drug discovery. Study shows how bacteria guide electron flow for efficient energy generation In a recent study conducted by Hongri Gong and colleagues, a respiratory supercomplex was isolated from the bacterium Mycobacterium smegmatis, and its structure was visualized at a resolution of 3.5 Å using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). The bacterium is a close relative to M. tuberculosis and a popular model used to study many other bacterial species. The detailed structure revealed how electrons were transferred in the cell in a process hitherto unseen.

In aerobic cellular respiration, energy is extracted from electron donors to the terminal acceptor, oxygen, via the electron transport chain (ETC) to create a transmembrane proton gradient known as a proton motive force (PMF) that drives ATP synthesis. The new results now published in Science reveal a direct link for electron transfer between enzymes to represent a new mode of respiratory chain catalysis. Quinones and cytochromes are two types of electron carriers in ETCs used to shuttle electrons to and from large macromolecular structures embedded in the membrane. Four membrane oxidoreductases are involved in the mitochondrial respiratory chain for electron transfer. These include complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase, CI), complex II (succinate:ubiquinone oxidoreductase, CII), complex III (bc1-type ubiquinol:cytochrome c oxidoreductase, bc1-type CIII) and complex IV (aa3-type cytochrome c oxidase, aa3-type CIV). By function, CIII can oxidize ubiquinol to ubiquinone and pass the electrons to soluble cytochrome c. Electrons are then shuttled to CIV, where oxygen is reduced to water. The transmembrane PMF is generated by proton pumping in CI, CIII and CIV. The composition and structure of CIII dimer.

The cells were cultured and the membrane isolated as previously described. After cell culture, harvesting and cell lysis, cell membrane pellets were harvested to extract respiratory supercomplexes. The supercomplexes were characterized using optical spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy and 3,3′-diaminobenzidine (DAB) staining. To identify heme groups, selected fractions were analyzed by recording spectra before and after reduction with dithionate as described previously. The purified samples were analyzed using native mass spectroscopy to investigate the architecture and the individual structural components were analyzed using previously established protocols.

Women who received this minimally invasive treatment also had a slightly lower need for additional treatment than those who underwent surgery.UFE is a minimally invasive treatment for uterine fibroids that is less painful, preserves the uterus and allows women to get back to their lives sooner than surgical options. However, past research suggests U.S. women, a majority of whom will experience uterine fibroids by age 50, are largely unaware of UFE despite more than 30 years as an evidence-based treatment.“Women have options for treating their uterine fibroids. UFE and myomectomy are procedures with similar efficacy and durability for treating fibroids, but UFE has fewer complications and shorter hospital stays,” said Jemianne Bautista-Jia, M.D., radiology resident at Kaiser Permanente and lead author of the study. “There are important factors women should consider when choosing between the procedures. These factors include risk of bleeding, possibility of infections, and recovery time.”In the retrospective cohort study, researchers analyzed treatment outcomes of 950 uterine fibroid patients from Jan. 1, 2008 through Dec. 31, 2014. Half of the patients underwent UFE, a non-surgical treatment that eliminates the blood supply to fibroids, causing them to shrink or disappear. The other half were treated surgically through myomectomy, a procedure that removes existing fibroids.After an average seven-year follow up, the study found that women who underwent myomectomy had a higher rate of postprocedural complications, including a 2.9 percent rate of blood transfusion, which was significantly higher than the 1.1 percent rate for those who were treated using UFE. Patients in both treatment groups demonstrated a significant increase in hemoglobin one year after the initial procedure due to reduced bleeding. The two methods were comparably effective based on the rate at which secondary interventions — including UFE, myomectomy and hysterectomy — were needed. Second interventions were completed in 8.6 percent of women who received an initial UFE compared to 9.9 percent for women who initially underwent a myomectomy.This study also showed similar rates of miscarriage for women who underwent either UFE or myomectomy. Future research should explore the impact of all uterine-sparing fibroid procedures on pregnancy, which remains still poorly understood.A uterine fibroid (leiomyoma) is a noncancerous tumor that occurs in the muscle cells of the uterus. These growths do not spread to other regions of the body and are typically not dangerous. While some women do not experience symptoms, others have very heavy and prolonged bleeding that can be debilitating, as well as pelvic pain and abdominal enlargement.Treatments for uterine fibroids can range from monitoring the fibroids or administering medications to relieve the symptoms, to more invasive approaches, such as myomectomy and hysterectomy. UFE falls in the middle of the spectrum of treatment options and is performed through a tiny incision. Using real-time imaging, an interventional radiologist guides a catheter into the uterine arteries and then releases tiny particles to block the blood flow to the fibroid tumors.For more information: www.sirweb.orgReferenceBautista-Jia J., Chuprin A., Geisbush T., et al.

first_imgTravel News Digest spoke to some of the key industry people to know their opinion on the present state of MICE, Business, and Luxury Travel markets in India. The Industry believes that the segment is poised for vigorous growth. Thus, creating an efficient, productive business travel platform will facilitate in addressing the specific needs of these segments, and fully leveraging the growth opportunities.By Sulagna GhoshBusiness Travel industry in India is emerging as a specialised market with differentiated needs, in tandem with the global trends. The strongest growth in travel from India in the recent years has been by business travellers, with an almost five-fold increase in travel expenditure for business purposes over the past five years. As Indian companies are globalising, and the Indian market integrating with the world economy, Indian business travel is surging. The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) predicts that 15 years from now, India will likely be a top-three market in business travel spending.Luxury travel is also growing rapidly, buoyed by the new phase of conspicuous consumption by the affluent Indian traveller, where the demand is fuelled not only by FITs, but also uniquely Indian markets for weddings and other social occasions. The future of luxury tourism sector in India looks promising taking into consideration the increasing demand for exotic and unique holiday experiences from Indian travellers. The holidaymakers are becoming more evolved and they do not want to compromise on anything less than the best.Gaurav Sundaram, Regional Director, GBTA India, said, “The Indian market is seeing aggressive growth across the segments. With the increased economic and political stability in the country, these positive trends are more pronounced in the last two years.”Karan Anand, Head, Relationships, Cox & Kings, said that India is one of the fastest growing travel market in the world and business, MICE and luxury travel markets are growing at a very fast pace. “Top corporates, film production houses and destination wedding planners in India contribute to most of this business and are keen to explore newer destinations- domestic as well as international,” he said.Sharing similar sentiments, Vishal Suri, Managing Director, SOTC Travels, said, “MICE, Business and Luxury travel markets in India have emerged as important segments of the travel industry. India is going the global way and MICE is fast becoming a major part of its travel and promotional budgets. Meeting demand, size and space is crucial for rapid growth within the segments. Each of the segments would require high levels of innovation and customisation.”A huge growth can be seen in these sectors as India is emerging as one of the largest markets for Outbound, MICE, opined Gajesh Girdhar, Founder Member and National Coordinator, Network of Indian MICE Agents (NIMA). The current growth shows that by 2020, India should be on the top of the global list.India has emerged as the 10th largest business travel market in the world, spending over US$22 billion and is expected to grow by 13.5%, year-on-year, as indicated by a survey conducted by Deccan Herald. At present, India’s share of outbound business travel is pegged at US$4.8 billion worldwide. Industry experts say that the luxury travel market is growing by around 20% annually and over the next 10 years; it will grow around 15-20% every year. Also, Outbound MICE and Business Travel from India are predicted to increase by 62% by 2017.In order to further promote these segments, the industry has to strategise and reinvent itself to face new challenges and leverage fully the opportunities.Sundaram opined that in order to boost this industry further, the government needs to maintain and increment policy stability and incentives for industry. “Further efforts should be made by the External Affairs Ministry to improve the efficiency and ease with which business travellers can secure visas for travel purposes with limited documentation and speed. Continued investments in infrastructure related to the travel industry will also facilitate Business Travel,” he said.Anand said that we need to recognise the changing way in which the world is conducting business; the changing trends which are influencing global economies; the technological revolution which is changing the way in which events and meetings are being conducted. Assimilating these changes seamlessly and responding to it with strategic initiatives will only make the industry stronger than before.Corroborating with Anand, Suri said that the future of the industry will be influenced by the following major factors: Economic uncertainty, better, cheaper technological options for live events, Faster, shorter business cycles, placing their best foot forward to attract and support business groups from various industries in India.Suri further adds, “What is always needed is to recognise the changing way in which the world is conducting business; the changing trends which are influencing global economies; the technological revolution which is making its presence felt in the way in which events and meetings are being conducted. Assimilating these changes seamlessly and responding to it with strategic initiatives will only make the MICE, Business and Luxury industry stronger than before.”As India’s Business Travel industry is maturing, there is a growing need among Indian business travellers for information on the latest trends in this sector. The industry needs to make a conscious effort in educating the niche audience. This will help it to keep pace with the ever growing needs of the Indian traveller.At present in India, GBTA is the only industry body that looks at Business Travel as a special niche segment in India. They conduct events, networking forums, education and professional certification in this domain.Sundaram mentioned that a focused Business Travel Mart will allow industry partners specialising in this domain to showcase their capabilities and products to the buyer community. This will also allow for greater interaction and appreciation of best-in-class solutions for the client’s needs. He said, “Such a mart should provide a platform for industry partners to showcase their solutions and products, ability for buyers and sellers to interact effectively to address the pressing concerns of today, an education forum that provides insights into global best practices that are being used across the world and which can be implemented in India.”Suri believes that attending travel marts and conferences is an important business practice that can benefit tour companies in many ways, including building professional relationships, meeting the media, leveraging tips from other like-minded businesses, learning new ideas from industry experts. “Creating an efficient and productive business travel platform will benefit trade relations, help take advantage of business opportunities and learn about new trends and innovations within the Business Travel industry,” he said.According to Anand, specialised Business Travel Marts can help to address the specific needs of this segment. He further said that such a mart should have maximum business opportunities, community of qualified hosted buyers, delegates from multiple destinations across the globe and involvement of different industry segments in forums, talks and roundtable discussions to keep abreast of industry updates.With India set to be the 3rd fastest growing market in Business Travel from 2010-2019, this is the perfect time for a marketing and networking platform for this high-potential market.last_img read more

first_img NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah joined Bickley and Marotta Thursday afternoon on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. Here is what he had to say about the Arizona Cardinals story lines son far in training camp. On Jonathan Cooper not living up to expectations in camp:“Jonathan Cooper is not really having a great camp, that has surprised me. I’ve heard from several people that is absolutely the case. I liked him at North Carolina, obviously he had the injury last year, but I thought he would be a big addition to this team. Maybe he’s got some rust he needs to knock off, maybe that player will eventually emerge, but to me that’s a major storyline we’re following.” Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Your browser does not support the audio element.

He’s just got a nack for it, and those guys can do that for a long period of time. To me, the concerns are definitely what’s going on off the field and having your head right.

first_img Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Related LinksTale of two quarterbacks: Cards’ Bradford outplayed by Rams’ GoffCardinals looking for answers on offense after loss to RamsCardinals CB Patrick Peterson gets first interception of 2018Wide receivers couldn’t create separation off the line of scrimmage. The expectation of a strong running game still hasn’t come to fruition.Not only can the Cardinals not convert third downs, they struggled to even get into position to do so.On six attempted third-down conversions in the first half, three times the Cardinals were more than 10 yards behind the first-down marker.In the second half, Arizona only had one attempt of two yards or shorter. Overall, the team converted three of 12.The Rams were 8-for-15.Wilks said the failures on both ends contributed to the other.“I’m not going to sit here and put it on either side. I think, No. 1, we could do a much better job sustaining drives, moving the chains,” he said. “We could do a better job as well getting off the field on third down, and giving the ball back to the offense.”To the first point of sustaining drives: Only two Cardinal wide receivers had receptions. Larry Fitzgerald had three for 28 yards before leaving the game early with a minor hamstring injury, and Christian Kirk had four receptions for 27 yards.Chad Williams, listed as the No. 2 receiver, didn’t catch any of his three targets. J.J. Nelson was only thrown to once. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires As the Cardinals failed to present any receiving threats and the Rams ran up the score, David Johnson only got 13 carries. He finished the game with 48 yards on the ground.To Wilks’ second call of getting the ball back to the offense: the Rams wide receiver corps was everything the Cardinals want out of theirs.Brandin Cooks, a speedy playmaker, caught seven receptions for 159 yards, including beating cornerback Jamar Taylor to a 57-yard pass. Taylor won the No. 2 CB job behind Patrick Peterson this offseason.Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp caught six passes apiece for a total of 144 yards.This success came even when the Rams run game wasn’t working.Arizona held Todd Gurley to -1 yards in the first quarter. The Cardinals largely contained him, limiting him to 42 yards on 19 carries, but they couldn’t stop him in the red zone. Gurley scored three touchdowns.The Rams quarterback took care of the other 80 yards of the field. Jared Goff completed 75 percent of his passes for 354 yards.Sam Bradford completed 63 percent of his passes for 90 yards.Wilks declined to say the offensive problems stemmed from him, instead telling media he would go watch the film and look at Cardinals personnel.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks wouldn’t go into specifics.He said he needed to look at film, re-watch clips of the 34-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, and see what exactly went wrong and where the team can make improvements.But he didn’t mince his words.“I’m not going to sit here and say right after the game what we’re going to do from a personnel standpoint, but I will say this: Everybody will be evaluated,” Wilks said. “Everybody needs to check themselves and we’re going to do that as we watch this tape and find a way to win a football game,” Wilks said. – / 19 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 51 Comments   Share   last_img read more

first_img Harvey Weinstein is escorted into court, Friday, May 25, 2018, in New York. The movie mogul turned himself in at a police precinct earlier Friday. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan) by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted May 25, 2018 6:17 am PDT Last Updated May 25, 2018 at 9:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Rose McGowan on Weinstein: ‘One win is a win for all of us’center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – She was one of the earliest Harvey Weinstein accusers, and she thought the mogul might never face justice in a court of law.Now, actress Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of raping her 20 years ago, is gratified but “still in shock” at his surrender Friday in a Manhattan courtroom on rape charges. And she prays that the charges will stick.“I still have very guarded hopes,” McGowan told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday night. “The justice system has been something very elusive. I hope in this case it works. Because it’s all true. None of this was consensual.”Weinstein, who has long denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex, was arraigned Friday morning on rape and other charges involving two of the scores of women who have accused him. It was the first criminal case against Weinstein since the revelations about him erupted last October and sparked the cultural “reckoning” that became the MeToo movement.“We got you, Harvey Weinstein, we got you,” she tweeted Friday morning.“I hope this gives hope to victims and survivors everywhere, that we are one step closer to justice. Because one win is a win for all of us,” McGowan said Thursday night. “It shows that it can be done.”After talking and writing about the case for so long, including in a recent memoir, “Brave,” McGowan, 44, said it came as a huge surprise when news of the legal case finally came.“I haven’t come out of the shock of it yet,” she said. “This is somebody who has been my nemesis for 20 years.”Besides the immediate satisfaction of seeing Weinstein face justice, McGowan said she firmly believes that his story, and the cultural earthquake that followed, will have a profound and lasting impact on how society treats powerful abusers who engage in sexual misconduct.“We can’t go backward,” she said. “The genie can’t go back in the bottle. This is the first time since written history that women are being believed — begrudgingly, but still.”Equally important, McGowan said, is that the MeToo movement will help women who aren’t famous, well-off movie stars, like many of Weinstein’s accusers, but less powerful women without a voice. “If it’s being done to me and other people who are well-known, what’s happening to those who aren’t?” she said.As for what she expects to see in five or 10 years, McGowan said “there are always going to be social predators. And sociopaths. But the ones that to me are more guilty are the ones that kept everything quiet and covered everything up. Those are the ones that need to change their behaviour. They know who they are. I think five years from now, a lot of these weeds will be taken out.”“The conversation will keep getting deeper,” she said. “It will continue. Because we needed to have a conversation about truth. And … victims tell the truth, no matter how long and how hard it is to tell the truth, or whether you’ve been saying it for 20 years and nobody cared to listen.”When asked if she planned to be in the courtroom should Weinstein go to trial, she said “Yes,” with a quiet laugh. “Yes, I will.”last_img read more
