Draft Analyst: Top Prospect’s “Stock Is Dropping” Days Before Draft

first_imgA general view of the NFL Draft as the Broncos are set to announce their selection.ARLINGTON, TX – APRIL 26: The Denver Broncos logo is seen on a video board during the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft at AT&T Stadium on April 26, 2018 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images)The 2019 NFL draft kicks off in just under a week. NFL teams are in the final stages of their preparations for the draft, compiling a full list of prospects on their respective big boards.While some prospects did well during the combine and lead-up to the draft to enhance their chances of being selected in the first round, one prospect appears to be falling.According to a recent report from NFL draft expert Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, one top prospect’s “stock is dropping.”Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary was seen as a potential top-five pick after the season. However, now he could slide to the mid-to-late first round.Here’s more from Miller.Rashan Gary has been billed throughout the draft process as someone who has untapped potential and wasn’t developed well at Michigan. That might be true, but NFL teams are approaching Gary with caution as the draft nears.While falling to the middle of the draft might not seem bad, it would significantly impact Gary’s wallet.The total contract value for the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s draft sits at $29,114,286 according to Spotrac. Contrast that with the No. 15 overall pick, which pays out $14,328,004.The NFL draft kicks off with Round 1 on Thursday night.last_img read more

Confusion over separate cutoffs for EWS category

first_imgNew Delhi: Confusion prevailed among students at the “Open Day” organised at Delhi University’s Rajdhani College on Friday as a professor announced that there will be no separate cut-offs for candidates belonging to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).The professor’s remark came a few days after the varsity had said there will be separate cut-offs for the category. This year, the varsity has effected a 10 percent increase in seats for the EWS and maintained that there will be a rise of close to 6,000 seats, taking the total number of seats for undergraduate courses to 62,000.

However, on Friday, at the Open Day at Rajdhani College, Dr Sangeeta D Gadre, a professor at Kirori Mal College said, “There will not be separate cut-offs for EWS students and they will have the same eligibility criteria as students from the unreserved category.” She also cited the admission bulletin, which said, “Eligibility Criteria for merit-based admissions under the EWS category shall be identical to that of unreserved category.” Also Read – Two persons arrested for killing manager of Muthoot FinanceGadre said EWS students are only entitled to fee concession. However, another official said, “The university is trying to work out the modalities of the process and trying to look at having separate cut-offs for EWS applicants. “When the varsity has increased the seats, they will ensure that there is enrolment on them. The modalities of having separate cut-offs for the category like there are for SC, ST, OBC categories will be worked out,” the official added. At the “Open Day”, students complained that despite the Delhi government issuing a direction to the relevant authorities to issue EWS certificates, the officials were still not issuing them.last_img read more

Mexicos oil company cuts theft output still falling

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos company says it reduced fuel theft 79% in the first quarter, but continues to lose money and produce less crude.The company is known as Pemex. It produced an average of 1.66 million barrels of crude a day in the first three months of 2019, down about 11% from 1.87 million barrels in the same period of 2018.The company used tanker trucks to bypass pipelines tapped by fuel thieves, cutting fuel thefts 79% as compared to December. The company has also reportedly poured concrete atop some frequently tapped stretches of pipeline.The company loses money due to high taxes and transfer payments. It said Tuesday that losses in the first quarter totalled 35.7 billion pesos, or about $1.84 billion at end-of-March exchange rates.The Associated Press read more

Miller isn’t the Indians’ closer — that distinction belongs to Cody Allen — and in fact, Miller doesn’t have a single save yet this season. But no reliever has contributed more to his team’s bottom line so far.Miller has appeared in 23 games, usually entering in the 7th or 8th inning. All but a handful of those appearances have come in high-leverage situations. He’s yielded just two runs — one of them unearned — while striking out 37 batters and allowing just 5 walks and 13 hits in 26.1 innings. He’s been as unhittable as pitchers get. But while Miller hasn’t earned any saves for his efforts, he does have 17 goose eggs, tying him for the major league lead. He also leads the majors in goose wins above replacement (GWAR), having added 2.3 wins to Cleveland’s tally so far. If his performance so far is the source of any disappointment, it’s that, unlike during last year’s postseason, Miller hasn’t been used in many multi-inning appearances — but that’s on manager Terry Francona, not Miller.The co-leader in goose eggs is the Brewers’ Corey Knebel, who started out as a setup man but worked his way into the closer role. We’re more interested in pitchers with less conventional usage patterns, however, and a couple of them have fallen off the pace slightly. The Astros’ Chris Devenski, who we highlighted last month for often working multiple innings at a time, is up to 15 goose eggs, but he also has 5 broken eggs (the goose equivalent of a blown save). And the Reds’ Raisel Iglesias, who’s mainly used as a closer but who often enters the game in the 8th inning instead of the 9th, is stuck on 12 goose eggs, mostly because the Reds have been playing like crap and not providing him with enough clutch situations to pitch in.You can find a complete rundown of goose stats in the table below. We’ll continue to update these numbers once a month or so.

A Suitable Boy BBC casts unknown actress as star of The Crown

It has an Indian cast unknown to the average British viewer and is based on a novel that, at 1,535 pages long, has defeated many a reader. Set in the 1950s, A Suitable Boy does not concern itself with the British in India, as classics such as The Jewel in the… But the screenwriter Andrew Davies has reassured audiences that they will relate to his new adaptation of Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy, the first BBC drama to be made without a single British actor – a project jokingly referred to by its director as “The Crown in brown”. The corporation announced today that the six-part drama will star 22-year-old newcomer Tanya Maniktala in the central role, alongside the renowned Indian actress, Tabu.

Espèce menacée lun des derniers rhinocéros de Java retrouvé abattu pour sa

first_imgEspèce menacée : l’un des derniers rhinocéros de Java retrouvé abattu pour sa corne Viêt Nam – Alors qu’il reste moins de soixante rhinocéros de Java sur la planète, l’un des derniers individus de cette espèce en danger critique d’extinction a été retrouvé mort, abattu par des braconniers en fin de semaine dernière.C’est dans le parc national de Cat Tien qu’a été retrouvé l’animal, abattu pour sa corne. “Une nouvelle désastreuse pour la protection du rhinocéros, et pour le Viêt Nam” a déploré Dung Huynh Tien du WWF.L’association de protection de la nature mène actuellement une étude afin de déterminer s’il reste encore aujourd’hui des rhinocéros de Java en vie au Viêt Nam, où une dizaine d’individus seulement étaient recensés ces dernières années. Dans l’est de l’Asie, la corne de ces animaux est utilisée pour soigner la fièvre et l’hypertension. Répertorié uniquement au Viêt Nam et en Indonésie, le rhinocéros de Java est classé en danger critique d’extinction sur la liste rouge de l’Union internationale pour la conservation de la nature (UICN) depuis 2009. Avec seulement deux populations existant à l’état sauvage, l’animal est considéré comme l’un des grands mammifères les plus menacés au monde.Victime de la chasse, le rhinocéros de Java s’est aussi raréfié en raison de la disparition de son habitat forestier. Il vivait anciennement dans un vaste croissant allant du nord de l’Inde à l’actuelle Indonésie, en passant par la Birmanie, la Thaïlande et la péninsule Malaise.Le 16 mai 2010 à 10:26 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Vancouver City Council studies 30M tax proposal

first_imgDeliberation over A Stronger Vancouver continued Monday evening with a city council workshop targeted at all the services and upgrades the city might be able to buy with an additional $30 million a year in tax revenue.The result of two years of analysis and outreach, the sweeping package would pour resources into economic development, public safety and city parks.“It’s a big project. It’s going to be the largest undertaking the city has done in recent history, if ever,” Councilor Laurie Lebowsky said at the April 22 meeting.Parks and Recreation Director Julie Hannon, Community Economic Development Director Chad Eiken and Fire Chief Joe Molina laid out the benefits of the project to their respective departments in a presentation to council. It was a follow-up to last week, when representatives from the Vancouver Strong Executive Sponsors Council presented their formal recommendations — including how to pay for them.Among other things, the Stronger Vancouver plan would provide funds to:• Replace the Operations Center.• Rebuild two fire stations and renovate three.• Enhance the parks system, which would include building nine new parks on city property, improving 14 existing parks and redesigning two others.• Increase investments in areas needing a boost, like the Fourth Plain corridor and the Heights district.• Establish a citywide culture, arts and heritage program.• Improve response times of emergency services.• Support and extend operations serving the homeless at the Vancouver Navigation Center.• Make the Affordable Housing Fund property tax levy permanent.• Update fire safety requirements to include sprinklers in all new buildings.• Improve pedestrian and cyclist safety.One of the goals of the package was to help restore the staff levels after the Great Recession slashed city payrolls. If approved, A Stronger Vancouver should stabilize the city’s operating budget through 2030.“Since about 2012, the city has been relentlessly focused on: how do we optimize the best results to the community that we can with the resources we do have? And after we do that, what gaps do we have?” said City Manager Eric Holmes. “What mix of programs and projects could achieve that vision?”last_img read more

Wes Morgan We were very sloppy

first_imgLeicester City captain Wes Morgan has urged his team to improve in breaking teams down in order to reach their target in the Premier League this season.Morgan slammed his team for being too sloppy in their 2-1 home defeat to ten-man Southampton at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.The visitors went one goal in the 11th minute, thanks to James Ward-Prowse who stepped up to convert a penalty after Nampalys Mendy’s clumsy challenge in the box.Southampton defender Yann Valery received his second yellow card and was sent off in the 45th minute of the game.But Shane Long doubled the Saints’ advantage in the stoppage time to make it 2-0 to the visitors going into the break.Wilfred Ndid pulled one back for Leicester to reduce the deficit in the 58th minute, but the Foxes failed to find the equalizer and the game ended in a 2-1 defeat.“At home, we want to pick up points and put in good performances, and especially the first half, we were very sloppy,” Wes Morgan told the club’s website.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We were getting into good positions and the ball was breaking down for no reason. We conceded two very sloppy goals, which isn’t like us.“It’s obviously very frustrating to go in at half-time 2-0 down when we felt we should have done a lot better.“We tried and tried in the second half. I’m not sure what the possession stats would have been, but it was waves and waves of attack. We got one goal, but we couldn’t get the second and it’s difficult.“They had 10 men and they stayed in two solid blocks, which was very difficult to break down and we couldn’t get through. It’s very frustrating.“We shouldn’t have been in that position in the first place. 2-0 down just gives us a very tough task and we’ve got to start looking at our performances and doing a lot better.”last_img read more

India’s EV incentive wants to make that happen. Hindustan Times/Getty Images Lots of places around the world are looking for ways to incentivize folks to ditch their internal combustion vehicles and get shiny new(er) electric vehicles instead. America famously has its EV tax credit and all its production number provisos and phased phase-out. China has something similar regarding EV purchase subsidies.India is keeping things a little simpler, according to a report Wednesday by Reuters. Rather than dealing with credits or rebates, India is considering simply not charging EV owners registration fees. It’s brilliant.India’s plan would apply not only to cars but to all kinds of electric vehicles, including motorcycles, scooters and autorickshaws. Frankly, we want to see people driving electrified Hindustan Ambassadors around because that would be great.In any case, this a plan that would, in theory at least, require minimal effort on the part of the government and it could prove to be a boon to pollution-clogged India.

first_img Box Score (PDF) Story Links Teeter/Players Postgame Video center_img LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Tessa Chad scored nine goals and tallied two assists, setting a program record for points in a single game, to lift University of Louisville women’s lacrosse team past Ohio State 19-7 on Tuesday afternoon.Chad’s nine goals also tied her own program record for goals scored in a single contest and allowed her to earn both her 200th career point and 100th point as a Cardinal.”My teammates found me a lot today when I was open, I couldn’t score without my teammates,” said Chad. “Our offense had a good flow today and I think we’re finding a groove out there.”With the victory, the Cardinals snap a four-game losing streak and improve to 5-10 on the season, while the Buckeyes drop to 8-6.Ohio State opened the game with two goals in the first two minutes, but the Cardinals quickly countered as Chad converted on two free position attempts to even the score at 2-2.The Buckeyes responded with a pair of goals before the Cards fired off six unanswered goals to secure an 8-4 lead heading into halftime.Louisville continued its run with five more goals to start the second half and overall used an 11-0 spurt to take a 13-4 lead with 24:19 to go.Ohio State scored two straight to pull within 13-6, but the Cardinals scored six of the final seven goals to cruise to a 19-7 win.”We sputtered coming out of the gate a little bit, but we responded and played an excellent game in all areas,” said head coach Scott Teeter. “We competed for draws, went after 50/50 balls and really limited them defensively.”Chad’s nine goals tied her program-record for goals in a game, which was set earlier this year against Duquesne. Her 11 points broke her own program-record of 10 points in that same game vs. Duquesne.She now has 107 points in her two years at Louisville and 209 points in her four-year collegiate career.Ally Hall also finished with a hat trick for the Cardinals, while Paige Richbourg added two goals and two assists. Louisville finished with 37 shots, while limiting Ohio State to just 14. The Cardinals return to ACC action when they play at Virginia on Saturday at 12 p.m. ET.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

SpaceX Successfully Launches Lands 2 Rockets in 3 Days

first_imgStay on target I don’t know about you, but Elon Musk had a great weekend.His private aerospace firm SpaceX successfully launched and landed two rockets in three days.On Friday, the Falcon 9 Full Thrust sent Bulgaria’s first geostationary communications satellite into orbit from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center, before touching down on SpaceX’s east-coast drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You,” stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.Iridium-2 satellite launch (via SpaceX)A geostationary communications satellite, the BulgariaSat-1 should be operational by early August to provide various communications services to Bulgaria, Serbia, and the Balkans for 15 years.Watch the launch webcast below for an in-depth look at the operation.SpaceX, meanwhile, scored another win on Sunday, when it lobbed 10 Iridium-2 satellites into low-Earth orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.The space syndicate in January dispatched the first 10 satellites, each weighing about as much as a Mini Cooper, as part of Iridium Communications’ next-generation global satellite constellation, Iridium NEXT.Scheduled for completion in 2018, the mission continued yesterday with the release of another 10 satellites, leaving only 55 more for departure over the next year.BulgariaSat-1 launch (via SpaceX)“Right now, it’s two down with six more launched to go,” Iridium CEO Matt Desch said in a statement. “Our operations team is eagerly awaiting this new batch of satellites and is ready to begin the testing and validation process.”Following stage separation, the first stage of Falcon 9 safely docked on drone ship “Just Read the Instructions,” despite what SpaceX called “challenging weather conditions” in the Pacific.For more, check out the the full Iridium-2 launch webcast (all 1.5 hours of it) below.It’s not always been smooth sailing for Musk’s space venture: In September, something went wrong during a routine test of the unmanned Falcon 9 rocket at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, resulting in an explosion that rocked the launch site.The company, however, dusted itself off and moved on, making history in March when it successfully reused its rocket to launch a commercial communications satellite into geostationary transfer orbit.

Hakim lashes out at Centre over new policy on cable TV subscription

first_imgKolkata: State Urban Development minister and Kolkata Mayor Firhad Hakim slammed the Centre for its new policy on cable TV subscription. He alleged that broadcasters will get more profit due to the new policy and the income of local cable operators and Multiple System Operator(MSO)s will go down.On Wednesday, Hakim inaugurated SAARC region’s largest cable and broadband show organised by the Cable TV Equipment Traders and Manufacturers Association (CTMA) at the Cable TV Show 2019 at the Science City. Also Read – 3 injured, flight, train services hit as rains lash BengalDuring the programme, he alleged that incase of the new policy regarding the cable TV network and broadcasting, the Centre is greasing the pumps of broadcasters. Broadcasters earn a huge amount of money from advertisements. “In several areas, this business is the bread and butter for several unemployed youths. Broadcasters are forcing them to pay from their pockets. If cable operators and MSO’s charge the subscribers then they would face questions regarding this,” said Hakim. The organisers at the show said cable operators and MSO’s can witness new technologies. The industry is getting upgraded every year. There are 24 pavilions and 106 stalls present at the show. “The digital cable television network and broadband industry are expanding rapidly. New vendors are coming up with new technologies and consumer friendly solutions,” said Pawan Jajodia, Chairman Exhibition of CTMA.last_img read more

Air Canada WestJet Sunwing update trade as 737 Max grounding takes effect

first_imgAir Canada, WestJet, Sunwing update trade as 737 Max grounding takes effect TORONTO — Their Boeing 737 Max aircraft may make up a fraction of their fleets but with the sudden grounding of more than 40 planes, the rebooking process for Air Canada, WestJet and Sunwing is nevertheless a massive undertaking, and agents are right in the thick of it helping clients.Here’s what we’re hearing from the airlines. Sunwing Airlines says it is finalizing a revised schedule to accommodate the temporary removal of its 737 Max aircraft from service.“We appreciate the patience of our retail partners and customers while we work to communicate these updates,” says Sunwing.“We will endeavor to minimize the impact of these schedule changes and we will not be cancelling any flights as a result.”As announced yesterday, Air Canada’s cancellation and rebooking policies are in place with full fee waiver for affected customers.Air Canada’s 737 Max operations carry, on average, 9,000 – 12,000 customers per day. That said, Air Canada typically operates about 75 737 Max flights daily out of a total schedule of approximately 1,600 daily flights system-wide, representing less than 6% of its total flying. The airline has a total fleet of 400 aircraft (including 24 737 Max aircraft), made up of Air Canada mainline, Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada Express aircraft.Air Canada says: “We are making adjustments to our schedule to minimize the disruption to customers as much as possible, by optimizing the deployment of the rest of our fleet and looking at alternative options, including accommodating customers on other airlines.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTThe airline’s adjustments include re-scheduling wide-body aircraft to serve Hawaii.Some Air Canada flights will operate according to schedule with mainline or Air Canada Rouge aircraft, such as Montreal-Martinique and Montreal-Guadeloupe.Other routes, notably Halifax-London and St. John’s-London, are cancelled in the short term, with passengers re-routed through Montreal and Toronto hubs.As Air Canada’s operations teams make changes to the airline’s flight schedule, clients whose flight times change or flight numbers change will receive an email update to their itineraries as soon as changes are finalized. Air Canada is prioritizing clients travelling within the next 72 hours.Agents can direct Air Canada clients to the Manage My Bookings section of aircanada.com if clients want to know what type of aircraft they’re flying on.WestJet is also working with agents and passengers on the rebooking process. WestJet has 13 737 Max aircraft. Meanwhile WestJet has 162 aircraft – or more than 92% of its overall fleet – that remain in service, say WestJet President and CEO Ed Sims.WestJet said the grounding order will affect about 1,400 customers daily. WestJet says it will “attempt to rebook guests for no additional charge,” but is sticking to a policy that could see passengers pay the difference in fares or fees for the changed ticket.More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesCanada’s decision yesterday to ground the 737 Max aircraft, matched quickly by the U.S. and the FAA and following the lead of other countries around the world, has the added wrinkle of timing, coming in the midst of March Break, one of the busiest travel weeks of the year.More than 40 countries have now grounded or banned the Max 8 from their airspace over safety concerns.Adeel Khamisa said his family’s United Airlines flight from Montreal to Los Angeles on an Air Canada-operated Max 8 plane was full last Saturday.“All those people need to get home,” said the Ottawa resident. “I’m getting passed around back and forth between two airlines, each saying it’s the other’s responsibility.”Jason Scarrotts, a father of two young children, said he was on the phone with Air Canada for 90 minutes before speaking with an agent to rebook their Max 8 flight from Vancouver to Palm Springs, only to be disconnected. “Please help,” he tweeted.With files from The Canadian Press Thursday, March 14, 2019 Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >>center_img Travelweek Group Tags: Air Canada, boeing, WestJet Sharelast_img read more

Dbacks president Derrick Hall Franchise still f

first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Brady Henderson, editor of MyNorthwest.com for ArizonaSports 620’s sister station in Seattle, 710 ESPN, points out a fewinstances of “extra stuff” in a blog post.One came in the first quarter after Lynchdragged a pile of defenders for several seconds. DarnellDockett, one of two Cardinals to finally bring Lynch down,put his knee into his facemask while getting up. Duringthe end of a tackle in the second quarter, Adrian Wilsonpulled Lynch’s helmet off and pushed it away from thepile. Lynch was visibly miffed while talking with Carrollon the sideline following that play.The old saying is “you don’t want to know what goes on atthe bottom of piles in the NFL”, so these “charges” don’texactly surprise anyone.And Dockett and Wilson haven’t exactly been on-field choirboys during their tenures with the Cardinals. Add that tothe fact that Lynch is arguably the toughest runner in theleague to bring down, and maybe, just maybe, somefrustration set in.This sounds like the beginning of another heated rivalrybetween the Cardinals and an NFC West foe — which isexactly what the Cards, and the division, need. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories Many thought the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawkswould just play nice in their season finale last Sunday atUniversity of Phoenix Stadium. After all, both teams had been eliminated from playoffcontention and were playing mostly for pride…and secondplace in the NFC West, for whatever that’s worth.But credit goes to both teams, they played hard for wellover 60 minutes, with the Cardinals winning 23-20 inovertime. Things got chippy along the way, and Seahawks’coach Pete Carroll came out and accused the Cardinals ofdoing some “extra stuff” to Seattle runnning back MarshawnLynch at the bottom of piles.center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Comments   Share   Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right awaylast_img read more
