We’re working calmly because we know trophies will follow.“I feel best in the middle of the park, but I also enjoy playing on the left. I fell in love with fotball thanks to Xavi.“He was a pillar for Barcelona and Spain for so many years and I dream of following in his footsteps.“My day usually consists of raining, eating lunch with the team and then relaxing at home.“In the evening I go out with Mertens, who shows me Naples. He’s a great player and person.“I still speak only a but if Neapolitan, but there is the word ‘fra’ [brother in Neapolitan], which amuses me a lot. ‘Fra’ to me is Mertens, but I never eat pizza.

Fisker plans to launch 40000 300mile electric SUV in 2021

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Share your voice Fisker says the new model is a “futuristic, elegant muscular EV.” Fisker Inc Fisker is jumping into the electric-crossover fray, announcing Monday plans for a new model that will have a 300-mile driving range and a starting price below $40,000. Sales to customers are expected to begin in the second half of 2021, and the company promises a “drivable prototype” of the new model will be revealed before the end of 2019.A teaser image of the all-electric Fisker SUV shows a squat, wide design with functional aerodynamic elements on its front fascia. Behind the grille is a larger radar sensor, the company says, and the wheels measure 22 inches in diameter. Without offering specifics, Fisker says the new model will have “an extended open-air atmosphere,” hinting at some kind of convertible roof. Inside, a large head-up display and “a unique, intuitive user interface” will allow drivers to operate the vehicle.In terms of electrification, Fisker says the car will use an 80-plus-kilowatt battery pack and will manage about 300 miles of range per charge. That would compete well against new electric crossovers like the Tesla Model Y and Jaguar I-Pace. There will be two electric motors, one at each axle, to provide all-wheel drive. Fisker plans to sell the new car directly to customers and says it will establish a concierge-style servicing network.There’s still a long way to go between now and the car’s eventual launch in 2021. Fisker hasn’t even picked a name for the vehicle, for instance, and says it is still determining where it would build the car, though the California-based company apparently is looking for a factory in the US.Fisker, of course, has famed designer Henrik Fisker as its chairman and CEO. The last vehicle it revealed was the EMotion, introduced more than a year ago. Fisker says this SUV will launch first, before the EMotion. Though there are still many unanswered questions, we’re eager to see what becomes of both models in the coming years. Comments GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 18 Photos Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 68 Photos Share your voice 69 Photos 31 Photos Tagscenter_img 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal More From Roadshow Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available.

Tiff over tolls troubles bridge critics

first_imgWhen the state department of transportation took over the Knik Arm Crossing project from previous developers, the Knik Arm Bridge and Toll Authority, or KABATA, in July of last year, planners took a fresh look at traffic projections needed to ensure adequate tolls could be collected to pay project costs. But critics of the new plan say it’s the same old numbers game.A conceptual concept rendering of the KABATA bridge. Image from the Knik Arm Bridge and Toll Authority.Download AudioA socioeconomic study released by the state department of transportation shows a scaled down approach to fiscal plans to pay for the proposed bridge linking Anchorage and the Mat-Su Borough. DOT has applied for a federal loan to foot the bill for the bulk of construction costs of the bridge project, according to project director Judy Dougherty. She says the new look incorporates recent information.“Since DOT and the state is bringing financing to this project, they are taking a much more conservative look at the population projection.”Dougherty says that the new financing outlook would depend on a minimum of 18,000 vehicles a day paying a toll to cross the bridge. The traffic projections are based on expectations of population growth in the Borough.Dougherty says, under the current plan, toll revenues from the bridge are to be tapped to pay for the state’s share of the construction costs of the project. Dougherty points out that the old plan relied on tolls to pay for all bridge construction costs.“Under the new plan, which is a public finance plan, the tolls will only be responsible for paying for operations and maintenance and for the TIFIA [Transportation, Infrastructure, Finance and Innovation Act] loan, which is approximately one-third of the construction costs. ”A TIFIA loan is federal transportation money. The bridge project has applied for and been denied TIFIA funds, half a dozen times.But the traffic projections for potential users of the proposed Knik Arm Bridge are not realistic, according to an opponent of the project, independent financial analyst Jaime Kenworthy. He says consultants for the bridge project have inflated traffic estimates.“DOT has now spent a million dollars on new consultants to come up with the same numbers criticized by the LBNA audit. Their population projections for Mat-Su in 2040 project 60 percent more growth than the state demographer, and that AMATS is using for their 2040 plan.”Kenworthy, a longtime critic of the bridge, brought his analysis to a meeting of the KABATA board in Anchorage on Thursday.  DOT consultants’ information shows a doubling of population by 2040 in most Mat Su communities based on 2012 population figures.“And KABATA/ DOT has put five times more people and twice as many jobs at Point MacKenzie in 2040 than the Borough’s own consultant projected for 2035.”Dougherty says DOT’s population projections are centered on growth at Point MacKenzie. She says TIFIA experts will decide on the validity of the toll estimates.“Our studies will have to be investment grade. We will have to have two rating opinions and they will evaluate our project and our projections.”Kenworthy counters that a fiscally strapped state needs to proceed with caution.DOT consultants Cardno, Agnew-Beck and CDM Smith have worked on different aspects of the most recent Knik Arm Crossing study.  All three consulting firms have worked on previous studies related to the plan.  The KABATA board did not have a quorum at the meeting, and took no action Thursday.last_img read more

Virtual 3D nanorobots could lead to real cancerfighting technology

first_img Citation: Virtual 3D nanorobots could lead to real cancer-fighting technology (2007, December 5) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2007-12-virtual-3d-nanorobots-real-cancer-fighting.html Nanorobots search for organ-inlets demanding protein injection. Image credit: Adriano Cavalcanti, et al. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. To demonstrate the system, the researchers tested several cases where the nanorobots used different strategies to detect proteins, and in vessels with varying diameters. As expected, their results showed that nanorobots have a better chance of finding a target in smaller vessels. Also, the use of both chemical and thermal biosensors greatly improved the nanorobots’ efficiency compared with random motion.In addition to sensing, the simulation will hopefully provide interactive tools for many challenging aspects of nanorobot design, such as control methods, manufacturing approaches, actuator (motor) design, and more. The researchers are currently using the simulation for tests in laparoscopic surgery, diabetes, cancer, brain aneurysms, cardiology, military biohazard defense, and drug delivery. The development is highly collaborative, with advances depending on future improvements in nanoelectronics, new materials, and genomics research. “One of the major factors for successfully developing nanorobots is to bring together professionals with interdisciplinary views of science and technologies,” Cavalcanti said. “It is necessary to keep your eyes open for chemistry, materials engineering, electronics, computing, physics, mechanics, photonics, pharmaceutics, and medicine technologies. Our work is advancing progressively because we have experts from different backgrounds participating. We all pursue a common interest in working together to build medical nanorobots.”With all these disciplines moving ahead, a precise simulation system can help researchers understand the performance requirements for practical nanorobots, even before the technologies exist.“Some existing components, like sensors, motors, actuators and antennas, are already available as nanodevices,” said Cavalcanti. “Then you have to take the next step: those components should be integrated as embedded parts assembled into a nanorobot.”He explained that the biggest motivator for innovation comes from economic and strategic interests. Due to the wide variety of applications, nanorobots will almost certainly offer economic incentives.“In the case of nanorobots, you have huge potential for commercialization, with enormous chances of profit for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors,” Cavalcanti said. “Among other applications in medicine, nanororobots also represent an important strategic technology for military defense against biohazard contamination, which should help to protect against different sorts of pandemic outbreaks.”Due to these motivations, Cavalcanti hopes that working nanorobots will be here in the not-too-distant future.“If you consider the velocity that miniaturization is moving, from micro to nanoelectronics, then you can easily understand the feasibility to have medical nanorobots integrated as a nanoelectronic molecular machine before 2015,” he predicted, adding that nanorobots, like all medical technologies, would still need to undergo safety testing, which would push back the date for mass production and commercialization.More information: www.nanorobotdesign.comPublication: Cavalcanti, Adriano, Shirinzadeh, Bijan, Freitas, Robert A Jr., and Hogg, Tad. “Nanorobot architecture for medical target identification.” Nanotechnology 19 (2008) 015103 (15pp).Copyright 2007 PhysOrg.com.

To try to pick up the pace, a group of researchers has recently developed an innovative approach to help in the research and development of nanorobots – virtual reality. Adriano Cavalcanti, Bijan Shirinzadeh, Robert Freitas, Jr., and Tad Hogg, representing institutions in Melbourne, Australia, and the U.S., have published their simulation procedure in a recent issue of Nanotechnology. Just as 3D simulations previously helped engineers greatly accelerate developmental research in the semiconductor industry, Cavalcanti and colleagues hope that virtual nanorobots, virtual biomolecules and virtual arteries will accelerate the progress of nanorobot development.“The software NCD (nanorobot control design) is a system implemented to serve as a test bed for nanorobot 3D prototyping,” Cavalcanti, CEO of the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech and researcher at Monash University in Melbourne, told PhysOrg.com. “It is an advanced nanomechatronics simulator that provides physical and numerical information for nanorobot task-based modeling. Serving as a fast development platform for medical nanorobots investigation, the NCD simulations show how to interact and control a nanorobot inside the body.”In a demonstration of the real-time simulation, the nanorobots had the task of searching for proteins in a dynamic virtual environment, and identifying and bringing those proteins to a specific “organ-inlet” for drug delivery. The researchers analyzed how the nanorobots used different strategies to achieve this goal. For instance, the nanorobots could employ different sensory capabilities such as chemical and temperature sensors, as well as random movement.For the nanorobots, one of the most difficult parts was maneuvering close enough to a biomolecule to be able to sense that biomolecule, while accounting for many different forces and moving bodies. Unlike on the macroscale, viscosity dominates movement in arteries, affecting the nanorobots’ traveling as it encounters obstacles and proteins moving passively through the fluid. From eliminating the side effects of chemotherapy to treating Alzheimer’s disease, the potential medical applications of nanorobots are vast and ambitious. In the past decade, researchers have made many improvements on the different systems required for developing practical nanorobots, such as sensors, energy supply, and data transmission.last_img read more

Ancient crafts brought to life

first_imgThe ancient skills of spinning, weaving and other fibre-related crafts were the reason for a recent, one-week workshop held at the Highlands Estate in Van Reenen. Two friends, Glynis Brooke and Linda Tacke, have long been involved with various aspects of these crafts. Glynis, as a professional weaver and agent for Ashford Handicrafts from New Zealand, frequently meets people interested in spinning and weaving.Ashford is currently the largest manufacturer of spinning wheels in the world, with more than one million Ashford wheels in use worldwide. While most of these are used by crafters, they are also used extensively in rural upliftment programmes.Linda has long been involved with knitting, yarn, dyeing and weaving. As a specialist knitter, she produces beautiful pieces that are unique, full of colour and texture.This fascination with colour and texture is also reflected in her weaving.Glynis and Linda decided there was a need for a forum where people with an interest in any branch of fibre crafts could meet for mutual exchange of information.They felt these crafts should be made more widely accessible and the perception of them being old-fashioned needed to be dispelled. Thus the dream was born of bringing together a group of like-minded people to share knowledge and skills, and to teach and mentor others.Two years of discussion led to a group of people from around South Africa gathering in Van Reenen for a week, for the first Thread-Handed Fibre Fun Week.It was a meeting of like minds that forged new friendships and promoted much discussion on the way forward for fibre crafts in South Africa.It was a busy week, with Linda opening the proceedings and then putting on a presentation on her uniquely ‘wild’ style of knitting, together with a class in rigid heddle weaving.Sunday and Monday were spent on spinning, dyeing and weaving classes.On Tuesday, the focus was on learning the ancient craft of tablet or card weaving, as employed by the Vikings, Incas and Egyptians. Learning about spinning art yarn took up Wednesday and the workshop ended on Thursday when classes were held on rigid heddle weaving with the focus on warp rather than weft.The 8th Wakkerstroom Natural Fibre Handcraft Fair was held in the town on Saturday, with workshops in various weaving and knitting disciplines being held on either side of the actual fair.The 11th annual Clarens Quilt Festival will be held from July 14 to 18 and offers quilting, knitting, Tunisian knitting, crocheting and weaving.Anyone who would like to learn more about Thread-Handed is welcome to contact Glynis Brooke on 082-886-2152 / glynis@brooklands.co.za or Linda Tacke on 082-488-5730 / treeknits@gmail.comDID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter  why not join us there WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsitelast_img read more

Unions targeting QF Joyce

first_imgQantas chief executive Alan Joyce said that unions representing pilots and engineers have “singled out” the carrier, with “unacceptable demands” that could prevent the airline from moving into the future.Speaking to the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the carrier’s head stressed that the target against Qantas was “nothing short of a kamikaze campaign” as demands pitched by the union could “kill the jobs of their members”.While Mr Joyce sympathised with the need for job security, the airline’s head noted fighting for it was irrelevant as Qantas employees work under “great” conditions and jobs “have historically been secure”.  “We have a lower turnover rate than most Australian companies,” Mr Joyce added.“We probably have more people with 30, 40 and even 50 year employment milestones than any company in this country.  “But it is no more in my power to guarantee jobs in writing than to promise that Santa will swing by on 24 December.”Mr Joyce continued, describing the looming threat of industrial strikes as “damage to our brand” as it causes concern amongst passengers looking to place forward bookings.In a bid to protect the company’s future bookings, the airline confirmed that during industrial disputes it has always developed a contingency plan which involves sending managers overseas to train up pilots.Qantas’ chief defending the company’s back-up plan, refusing to apologise for establishing flight security for its customers.  In regards to relocating its business offshore, Mr Joyce described the move as a “myth”, highlighting that while the company will continue to look for expansion overseas, up to 93 percent of its 35,000 staff are located in Australia.  Qantas’ chief stressed that the with uncertainties such as fuel prices and natural disasters, the aviation industry “has never been more challenging” and international growth would provide the carrier and its staff with “new sources of income and profit”. Jetstar Asia established in 2004 has helped maintain Australian jobs according to Mr Joyce, by contributing its profits back into the Qantas Group.  Mr Joyce concluded, stating that he will continue to focus on moving the company into the future but will also “stay on track and keep doing what is right for Qantas, including all our employees”.

Mortgage Monitor Finds that 65 Million Borrowers Could Benefit From Refinancing

first_img in Featured, News, Uncategorized July 5, 2015 526 Views A total of 6.5 million borrowers could qualify for and benefit from traditional refinances and the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), according to the Data and Analytics division of Black Knight Financial Services latest Mortgage Monitor Report, based on data as of the end of May 2015.After reviewing current interest rates on existing 30-year mortgages and applying broad-based underwriting criteria, Black Knight found that 6.1 million borrowers could reap benefits from financing the traditional way. Additionally, given that HARP has extended it program through 2016, another 450,000 borrowers that meet HARP guidelines could benefit from refinancing through the program.Black Knight Data & Analytics SVP Ben Graboske noted that these refinance opportunities could lead to massive savings for borrowers that qualify.“For both groups, the potential monthly savings could be substantial. Some 500,000 American homeowners with a mortgage could save $500 or more each month by refinancing at today’s rates,” Graboske said. “Three million could save at least $200 per month. All told, in the aggregate we’re looking at about $1.5 billion dollars that American homeowners could be saving every month. It’s important to remember how rate-sensitive this population is, too; if rates go up just half a percentage point, 2.6 million people fall out of that refinanceable population.”According to Black Knight, there are 1.6 million more refinanceable borrowers today than one year ago. This is partly due to home price appreciation, but mostly due to interest rate reductions. The refinanceable population is up from late 2013 and early 2014 levels, but still well below the peaks seen in 2012 when interest rates were at historic lows.Black Knight also reviewed state refinance eligibility among borrowers finding that California leads the country with 14 percent of borrowers or 830,000 could likely qualify for and benefit from refinancing. Although Hawaii leads the country with about $550 in average monthly savings for refinance, the state only has 27,000 potential refinance candidates. Likewise, with an average savings of $364 per month, Washington, D.C. is second on that list, but has only 17,000 refinance candidates. California, New York, and Virginia are in the top 10 for both number of refinance candidates and average potential savings.Click here to view Black Knight’s complete Mortgage Monitor Report.

Whats the key for you guys to stay focused on Det

first_imgWhat’s the key for you guys to stay focused on Detroit? In all the times that you’ve done this, what’s the key for west coast teams when they have back-to-back east coast games?“I just think it’s not looking ahead. It’s taking one game at a time. More specifically when you’re playing in a game, one snap at a time. Every day that you come in you’ve got to get better and you’ve got to be prepared to play against that specific team. Every day this week these guys have got to come in focused and ready to play against the Detroit Lions and some of the obstacles that we’ll have and face against them. I think it’s just not looking ahead. I think you’ve always got to take every day and use it as a growth period.” – / 27 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element. How did the Cardinals come out of this game from a health perspective?“Pretty healthy. So far it looks pretty good. I’ll meet with Tom Reed and our medical staff this morning a little bit later and find out a little bit more but so far it seems like we came away pretty good.”What’s Andre Ellington’s health standpoint and what do you expect from him against Detroit?“He was close to being ready this week. As a matter of fact he practiced and I thought he looked pretty good out there. There were some things with deceleration that were still giving him a little bit of a problem. But I think he feels pretty good and he’s excited and ready to go. Hopefully he’ll have a good week of preparation and we’ll see him out there against Detroit.”Do you think that it’s your role as a general manager to talk to players or do you leave that more up to Bruce?“We both do. You want to make sure you instill confidence in these guys and that you still have faith in them. After every loss, on Monday morning it feels like the sky is falling. It does this year, it did last year and it did the year before. That’s not going to change and I don’t want that to change. I want that to fuel these guys and be a chip on their shoulder. But at the end of the day you can’t get too high and you can’t get too low. That’s really to me, the mindset you have to have. You’ve just got to make sure you’re putting in the work and you’re correcting these mistakes. I know that after this loss, these guys will be ready.” Some of the things that we have heard from the players had a lot to do with second half gap control, staying disciplined. What did you see as you watched the film? Was that an issue?“Yeah, from a defensive perspective it was just guys being out of their gaps, avoiding run lanes and that sort of thing. Again, when you look at the positives, I’m not sure I’ve seen a defensive tackle dominate a game like I saw Calais Campbell. I mean he had 11 tackles and completely controlled the line of scrimmage. To me, maybe his best game as a pro. But then there was stuff when you know, Kevin Minter was out of a gap or Deone Bucannon or Rashad Johnson took a bad entry level. There were a number of things and it was a team loss and I know our coaches will get these things corrected.”You throw the ball 46 times in this game, how did you think the offensive line held up?“Average. I will say this, when we were getting three and four man fronts I thought the guys did a decent job. Really where we had some issues from a protection standpoint was when they brought a lot of pressure. When they brought two to three extra defenders and if we didn’t see the hots or the sights. We had a little bit of issues with that. That’s where the number of sacks really came from. But they’re a good, talented defensive front. We knew it was going to be a challenge going into the game, and they get paid too. I’m more disappointed for the organization, the fan base because I know our fans brought it yesterday. They were extremely loud out there. We’ve just got to bounce back. It’s a long season and again there are some exciting positive things to look at.” Top Stories LISTEN: Steve Keim, AZ Cardinals GM Comments   Share   Do you look at yesterday’s game and immediately think we’re moving on to Detroit and it’s over? How long does this fester? “I think there’s always that period of time that you need to take as an organization to correct the errors. That’s how you grow and get better, through self-evaluation. I just got done watching the tape again. There’s a lot of things that were actually good and obviously some things that need to be corrected. When you have 447 yards to 328 yards, how do you lose? You lose because you have three turnovers and you’re one of five in the red zone. It’s pretty simple Football 101.”When you look at some of the position groups on the team and you evaluate the players and how they played, what’s the first thing you think of? Where were you disappointed? Where were you encouraged?“It was one of those days. It was one of those days where you saw guys, like a rookie like David Johnson do some things where you’re like, ‘wow, what a phenomenal skill-set the guy has,’ and then he has a fumble on the opening kickoff and he has a dropped touchdown. There’s a lot of good things to take away from it and some bad. The thing that’s positive to me – and if you’re going to take away any positives from a loss, which again very discouraged with the way we played yesterday – is that we were still in the game with a few minutes to go to win the game and we played as poorly as we did.”center_img Sometimes, it’s best to go straight to the man in charge.And when it comes to the Arizona Cardinals’ roster, that man is Steve Keim.Arizona’s general manager since January 2013, Keim has overseen a transformation that has led to 21 wins over two seasons. His deft touch with the draft and free agency has led to the team becoming a contender in the NFC.Lucky for us, Keim happens to be a weekly guest on the Doug and Wolf Show, right here on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. And since what he has to say is important, we thought it would be a good idea to put his words into print, allowing you to read what the GM is thinking. So, without further ado, here’s this week’s edition, which follows Arizona’s 24-22 loss against the St. Louis Rams: Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (31) his hit by St. Louis Rams outside linebacker Alec Ogletree (52) and safety Mark Barron (26) during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) When you were watching Mike Iupati, how did he play as an individual when you take the whole picture into account?“Probably like David Johnson, good and bad. There was some stuff and some rust he needed to take off, some bad footwork issues. And then there were a few good things. I don’t know if anybody played great. I would say if I had to pick one guy that played exceptional yesterday it would be Calais Campbell.”How do you process what Carson Palmer did on the field? How did he play?“A lot like David Johnson, some good and some bad. I don’t know if there’s anybody other than Calais that I could say played an excellent game. Carson is still to me doing a fantastic job. He made some great throws and there were some throws I’m sure he’d like to have back. You go to the third and two on the screen, probably if you put a little more air under it and got it over Robert Quinn you know you’re looking at a big play. And on the last play of the game, offensively for us, David was wide open on that slant and Carson just got a little too much air under it so we’ve just got to go back to the film and make the corrections and I know this staff and this team will be ready when we play in Detroit next weekend.” When you’re watching everything, did anything jump out and alarm you as a general manager making you say wow I’ve got to get this problem solved now? Or was it just hey, we lost to a team that played well?“I think they played well and I think we played poorly. We didn’t execute. We’ve had a lot of success early on this season for a number of reasons. Number one, red zone efficiency. The red zone efficiency probably couldn’t have been worse yesterday. You can’t come away one of five and kick field goals against a team that has a defense like this. And the plays were out there on the field to be had, we just left them out there, we didn’t execute, we didn’t make the plays when we needed to. As much yardage as we did get, as much as Carson threw for and Chris Johnson I thought had some really nice runs and did a nice job pick and sliding in the hole, but again we’ve got to get some things corrected.”Not a lot to be happy about, but at the same time nothing that you feel you need to do dramatically different?“Well you know, listen. Losing is not acceptable to me, so you’re asking the wrong guy. I’m not very happy obviously, but that’s the way that this organization needs to be run. From the top down we don’t want to lose and that’s what we should get our fans in a habit of having is a team that’s not accustomed to losing here. That’s the motto and the mindset that I think that we need to have. We have an infectious group of leaders in our locker room and I know that they’ll get this thing turned around and corrected. I know they’re extremely disappointed after the game yesterday.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

AP) Related News Uber Technologies Inc fired self-driving car executive Anthony Levandowski yielding to mounting pressure in its court fight with rival Waymo to part ways with the engineer after a judge concluded he took thousands of confidential files from the Alphabet Inc unit Levandowski joined the ride-hailing startup in 2016 after several years at Google’s autonomous driving project which is now called Waymo In February Waymo sued Uber alleging that Levandowski stole trade secrets and patents from Waymo for the development of self-driving technology and brought them to Uber Levandowski has invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify in the case hindering Uber’s ability to defend itself against Waymo’s claims The firing indicates a possible split between Uber and Levandowski who for months had presented an allied front in the fight against Waymo’s claims After US District Judge William Alsup told Uber it wasn’t doing enough to compel Levandowski to cooperate the company threatened to fire him if he didn’t change his stance The engineer had countered that it was an unfair burden to make him choose between his constitutional rights against self-incrimination and his job In a termination letter dated May 26 Uber gave Levandowski 20 days to comply with the requests to help in the investigation Levandowski isn’t a defendant in Waymo’s lawsuit though Alsup has asked federal prosecutors to investigate claims made in the case In a May 11 order Alsup gave Uber until May 31 to turn over all Waymo materials downloaded by Levandowski before he left the company While Uber hasn’t denied that Levandowski took the proprietary files the company has repeatedly insisted that they can’t be found on its computer servers Shortly after Uber announced Levandowski’s ouster on Tuesday his lawyer filed arguments in court urging the judge to back off the May 11 order which led to Uber’s initial threat to fire Levandowski “The government — no matter the branch — may not force a person to choose between her continued employment and her Fifth Amendment rights” Levandowski’s lawyer wrote in the filing Lawyers for Levandowski didn’t immediately respond to a request for additional comment An Uber spokeswoman declined to comment further on the termination A representative for Waymo didn’t immediately comment The New York Times reported on Levandowski’s termination earlier Tuesday Lidar Files Waymo’s lawsuit accuses Levandowski of illicitly downloading 14000 files including some on Waymo’s lidar a key component of self-driving systems Alsup ruled that Levandowski needed to step aside from working on the technology at Uber until the Waymo dispute was settled Uber replaced Levandowski as head of its self-driving program placing engineer Eric Meyhofer in charge Uber employees were told about the termination in a staff email on Tuesday Levandowski’s tenure at the private ride-hailing juggernaut valued at almost $70 billion was brief and dramatic He came to Uber via the acquisition of Otto an autonomous trucking startup he formed after leaving Waymo With his arrival Uber received another injection of engineers experienced with building self-driving systems A year before Uber jump-started its own autonomous program after hiring a slew of roboticists from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh Some Uber executives and investors had voiced concern that the company’s lack of involvement in the field placed it at an disadvantage against Alphabet and traditional carmakers which have invested heavily in the tech Levandowski’s pay package at Uber also entered the legal dispute Waymo’s lawyers said in court that the engineer was awarded Uber shares worth more than $250 million that were dated the day after he left Waymo However the compensation was tied to certain performance milestones according to documents filed by Uber The company said Tuesday that none of Levandowski’s stock has vested because he wasn’t at the company
