.Some 120 Islamic State fighters and 60 foreign mercenaries were killed in a series of Russian air strikes in Syria over the past 24 hours, the defence ministry in Moscow said on Saturday.Puzzlingly, the ministry also said three senior IS commanders including Omar al-Shishani had been confirmed dead as a result of an earlier Russian strike.Moscow reported al-Shishani’s death despite the fact that the Pentagon said in 2016 the notorious fighter had been killed by American troops in Iraq.”A command post of the terrorists and up to 80 (IS) fighters including nine natives of the Northern Caucasus were destroyed in the area of Mayadeen,” the ministry said, adding that another 40 IS fighters were killed around the town of Albu Kamal.Mayadeen is one of the Islamic State group’s last bastions in Syria.In another air strike, more than 60 foreign mercenaries from the former Soviet Union, Tunisia, and Egypt were killed in the Euphrates Valley south of Deir Ezzor.The ministry said “large numbers of foreign mercenaries” were coming into the Syrian border town of Albu Kamal from Iraq.It also said Russian forces had killed senior IS commanders Omar al-Shishani, Alaa al-din al-Shishani and Salah al-Din al-Shishani, all natives of the Northern Caucasus.Moscow reported their deaths after taking “several days” to confirm the results of an earlier strike on the northern outskirts of Albu Kamal which destroyed an IS command post with more than 30 fighters including the natives of the Northern Caucasus.- ‘Omar the Chechen’ -=======================The Pentagon announced in March 2016 that American forces had killed Shishani, one of the most notorious faces of IS known for his thick red beardShishani, whose nom de guerre means “Omar the Chechen,” came from the former Soviet state of Georgia’s Pankisi Gorge region, which is populated mainly by ethnic Chechens.He fought as a Chechen rebel against Russian forces before joining the Georgian military in 2006, and fought Russian forces again in Georgia in 2008.He later resurfaced in northern Syria as the commander of a group of foreign fighters and became a senior leader within IS.The Russian defence ministry was not immediately available for further comment.Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, disagreed with Moscow’s report.”Salah al-Din al-Shishani is still alive and is somewhere in the regions controlled by jihadist groups in the west of Aleppo province. He is a famous commander, and his jihadist group is allied with the jihadists of the Al-Nusra front but only in their fight against the regime,” he said.”He has no links with IS.The advances against IS in Deir Ezzor have resulted in a heavy civilian death toll through Russian and coalition air raids.The Observatory said Russian air strikes on Thursday night killed 14 people, including three children, fleeing across the Euphrates on rafts near Mayadeen.Since it intervened in Syria in 2015, Russia has not acknowledged any civilian deaths from its strikes, and it dismisses the Observatory’s reporting as biased.Moscow has been staging air strikes in support of its ally Damascus targeting both IS in Deir Ezzor province and rival jihadists led by Al-Qaeda’s former Syria affiliate in Idlib province in the northwest. read more
A man suspected of attempting to hijack a Biman Bangladesh airliner was killed in a commando operation by the army personnel at Shah Amanat International Airport in Chattogram on Sunday evening.The alleged hijacker was Mahadi, the general officer commanding of Chattogram cantonment told newsmen, attributing to a crewmember of the aircraft.The hijacker held a crewmember, flight steward Sagor, hostage for hours at gun point before being killed by the commandoes, according to a press statement of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) department.He was shot inside the aircraft which was cordoned off immediately after its emergency landing there. He was brought out dead after the operation, said the GOC, major general Motiur Rahman.UNB reports: All the 142 passengers and pilots of the Dubai-bound flight from Dhaka earlier disembarked safely from the aircraft, said Shakil Miraj, Biman general manager (public relations).Gunman trying to hijack Biman aircraft killedHe said the Dubai-bound flight took off from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport after 5:00pm and it made landing at the Chattogram airport around 5:40pm.Biman manager (PR) Tasmin Akhter said the flight made the emergency landing suspecting a passenger to be a hijacker.Tasmin, however, said it was not still clear whether it was a hijacking bid.Members of Rapid Action Battalion, Bangladesh Army and the police had then cordoned off the aircraft.Officer-in-charge of Patenga police station in Chattogram Abul Quashem said two bullets were fired in the aircraft.Contacted, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan said around 7:10pm that they were still not clear what actually happened in the aircraft.Earlier, civil aviation and tourism secretary Mohibul Haque told UNB all the passengers were evacuated from the aircraft following the suspicious behaviour of a passenger. read more
Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen and US Secretary of State Mike PompeoBangladesh has sought US support to create a safe zone in Rakhine for Rohingyas, monitored by international human rights groups, with credible international pressure on Myanmar for their safe return.Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen met US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington on Monday and discussed the situation.This was the first meeting between the two leaders since their assumption of office in respective governments.Issues featuring in the meeting were: repatriation of the Rohingyas and creation of credible international pressure on Myanmar in that respect, deportation of Bangabandhu’s killer Rashed Chowdhury from USA to Bangladesh, shared vision of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific, US investments in Bangladesh, duty and quota free access of Bangladesh’s garments products in the US market and US-Bangladesh partnership in multiple sectors.He informed that Bangladesh at its own expense has developed the island “Bhashanchar” into a livable place in which one lakh Rohingyas are planned to be relocated in coordination with UN agencies and different aid groups, according to Bangladesh Embassy in Washington.The US secretary of state re-assured that the one million plus forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals have to return to Myanmar without any form of fear and persecution.He said it is the responsibility of the Myanmar government and military to create conducive environment so that the Rohingyas feel safe to return home.The US secretary of state reiterated that US would stand beside Bangladesh (both politically and financially) in finding a permanent solution to the Rohingya crisis.He also lauded the humanitarian gesture of the government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for temporarily sheltering the persecuted Rohingyas.Regarding deportation of Bangabandhu’s self-confessed and convicted killer Rashed Chowdhury from the USA, the Bangladesh foreign minister pointed out that he is fleeing justice.He said this is essential to carry out a vital common agenda of both countries pertaining to Counter-terrorism and Countering-Violent Extremism and upholding rule of law.Both leaders agreed that for greater prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region, vital energy and infrastructure projects need to be implemented on regional partnership basis.In that respect, leaders of the region need to work together on issues such as governance, accountability, rule of law and maritime security.Momen stated that Bangladesh is lauded internationally for its impressive development journey.He sought more investment from the USA in the oil and gas sector and US presence in the Special Economic Zones.Minister Momen sought US support to the candidature of Bangladesh in the upcoming election to the post of deputy director general of International Organisation for Migration (IOM).Later in the day, the visiting Bangladesh minister held meetings with senior officials of the US State Department and Deputy National Security Adviser Charles Kupperman. Bangladesh Ambassador to the USA Mohammad Ziauddin accompanied the minister at the meetings. read more
There were some very promising games among the tables, though. XGen Studios’ The Low Road stood out as both the most mechanically interesting and the most polished presentation. It’s a point-and-click adventure game that takes place in the 1970s, following corporate spies digging for secrets. The main gameplay looked very Sierra-like, but I saw a fascinating first-person section where the player rifles through documents while talking to a contact to figure out the best way to get information from them. New York Comic-Con was over a month ago, PAX East isn’t until the Spring, and I’ll be waiting until the summer to shlep out to E3, but there was still a pretty good little game convention in New York last weekend, and considering recent events it was pretty on-point. GaymerX is an annual independent video game convention in San Francisco. After four years on the eh-est coast, it spin off to the beast coast for the first time this year as GaymerX East.The event was held at the Microsoft Technology Center in Times Square, with the space helpfully donated for the weekend by Microsoft. It’s an office building, not a convention space, so the layout and feel was markedly different, and smaller, than most gaming cons. GaymerX East took place across two floors of the Microsoft Technology Center, with expo halls, panel rooms, arcades, and tabletop areas spread out over multiple conference rooms.Hundreds of LGBT and supportive gamers attended the con, which included panels, indie developers, merch vendors, and tons of games. Local retro/import gaming standby Video Games New York set up the largest arcade room, making available several RetroN 5 systems, displays, and cartridges for anyone who wanted to play. It wasn’t a huge event, but it was a very positive one. I sat in on the “Gaming Journalism from the LGBTQIA Perspective” panel, moderated by The New York Times‘ Jude Biersdorfer and featuring Kotaku managing editor Riley MacLeod, writer and I Need Diverse Games founder Tanya DePass, and NYC Gaymers organizer James Nieves. I’m primarily a tech writer rather than a game critic, and it was pretty interesting getting perspectives of people in the industry who are both LGBT and focus almost entirely on games in their coverage. There’s a great deal of discontent regarding representation of minority and LGBT people in both games and game media.Mafia 3 was brought up as a game with a very racially and socially charged premise, and the panel discussed the necessity of coverage written by people with perspectives that can more personally understand the points of that premise. The game raises some very valid questions of who should cover what games how, when the reaction and interpretation of characters using racist epithets heavily varies changes a great deal depending on whether the writer has personally dealt with those epithets.The indie games showed off at GaymerX East looked generally promising, but they largely suffered from the same problem many indie developers showing off their upcoming projects at less-than-huge events suffer: a lack of commercial polish. Many of the games I saw looked overly simple and unfinished, but that’s common for events of this scale regardless of social themes. And, while the games shown off all included LGBT developers, they weren’t all focused on LGBT perspectives in their themes and concepts. Escape From Clowntown was another good-looking game at GaymerX East, though it isn’t nearly as interesting in concept as The Low Road. It’s a mobile action/puzzle game where you jump between spinning wheels to reach the end of the level. The art is what really makes it stand out, with bright, surreal, very dense art evocative of grafitti, Giger, and Bratz. I’m not a fan of the character designs, but the levels are all stunning murals filled with strangeness. The gameplay left a lot to be desired, though, and I really hope Seagull Fish Entertainment can tighten up the jumping, since it’s basically the only mechanic you have control over.GaymerX East wasn’t a big event, and I’m curious to see just how larger the west coast version is. It was, however, very positive, bringing together a large segment of gamers and developers that are largely underserved by the industry.View as: One Page Slides1.

The ads indicate that these representations of remote conference attendees are on Microsoft’s virtual conferencing technology agenda. One of the two ads posted was for a Software Development Engineer, Principal. The ad asked: “Want to be responsible for redefining how people telecommute, communicate and work? Not just getting them connected, but truly bringing them together with cutting edge software and hardware.” Microsoft said it is now developing the hardware and software necessary to have a realistic physical body-double or proxy taking part in a remote meeting.Microsoft said the remote worker will have a “true seat at the table, the ability to look around the room, turn to a colleague and have a side conversation. Longer-term, this same platform will enable high-definition communication scenarios for consumers over Skype.” That wording indicates the new technology, once ready for release, would take videoconferencing beyond talking heads and into the realm of communications capturing dynamic exchanges of multiple conversations. The frequently heard reservation by business managers about tele-meetings has been how in-person meetings generate more substantive idea-swaps and better collaborations. Should the technology enable a true seat at the table, as described by Microsoft, then businesses may be far more amenable to teleconferencing.Microsoft’s ad called on experienced developers (C/C++/C#). The leader is expected to not only lead the project but also contribute to the architecture and hands-on coding. The ad called for expertise in “any of the following,” WinRT, Win 8, mobile applications, communication applications, distributed systems, Lync/Skype, video & audio codecs; image/video processing, computer vision, embedded systems, firmware, sensing, robotics, control systems, and hardware products.The other job listing was similarly for a software development engineer, and this ad referred to a “Microsoft Mesa project.” According to the ad, “The Microsoft Mesa project is creating immersive telepresence products that will change the way remote workers experience and are experienced in meetings.”The ad mentioned how Microsoft builds on technologies like Lync and Skype and also “emerging” ones like Windows 8 and Surface, with the additionof “unique Mesa specific technologies (like video processing).” According to the ad, experience with “XAML, MVVM and property models is a plus.” Explore further Skype jacks ads into free Internet phone calls Citation: Microsoft job ads for engineers show body-double plans (2013, April 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-04-microsoft-job-ads-body-double.html © 2013 Phys.org More information: Viewport: A Fully Distributed Immersive Teleconferencing System with Infrared Dot Pattern: research.microsoft.com/pubs/16 … 5/msr_tr_2012-60.pdf (Phys.org) —The buzz around new happenings at Microsoft stems from two job ads posted last week. The ads reveal that Microsoft means serious business about working on telepresence technology that will enable body doubles, in the next wave of business conference calls. Microsoft seeks two software development engineers, and the job ad wordings reveal Microsoft’s research goals: Microsoft plans to deliver a telepresence technology system that can depict a person on the other end of a business conversation.

6 min read This story originally appeared on Due Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. February 16, 2018 Many naysayers claim that artificial intelligence could destroy the world, often using the storyline in The Terminator to prove their point. In reality, AI can do more to save the world. Fortunately, it seems as though more people are beginning to understand the benefits of AI rather than fearing it. For example, Strategy Analytics found that 41 percent of consumers surveyed believed that AI would “enrich” their lives. Consider these five examples:1. Saving lives in the workplaceMany jobs, despite a focus on health and safety, still involve a considerable amount of risk. In an article in Manufacturing Business Technology, DataRPM, a Progress company, notes that risks involved for employees of U.S. factories can be alleviated by the use of the Industrial Internet of Things and predictive maintenance.The article states, “There is an estimated $40 billion worth of outdated machinery currently in use at United States factories, and that figure does not account for equipment that is simply overdue for maintenance. As that machinery inevitably begins to break, it will lead to loss of uptime, breach of service-level agreements. Also been known for quality issues, warranty claims and, unquestionably, workplace injuries. In fact, as much as 30 percent of workplace deaths happen during maintenance activities.”DataRPM then notes the role of AI and cognitive computing in improving the link between maintenance and workplace safety. Rather than purchasing new equipment, companies can use connected technologies to lengthen their machinery’s lifespan. These technologies address issues before they put factory workers at risk. In addition, AI can take on more roles within the factory, eliminating the need for humans to work in potentially dangerous areas.2. Saving the environmentUp to now, there has been no way to fully understand the impact that human beings and economic development have on the environment, including their adverse effects on plant and animal life. But that may soon change, as AI provides the necessary tools to collect, sift and organize extraordinary amounts of data.An extensive article in The Guardian illustrates the numerous ways that AI can help us prevent further damage and better understand how to address development needs while focusing on sustainability. The article discusses how Microsoft and other companies are using AI to assess land use patterns via land cover maps. Increased understanding of the patterns enables better decisions about using land and deploying appropriate conservation tactics.Indeed, AI technology is revolutionizing the modeling and management of environmental systems. Scientists and policy makers can use the information gained to help maintain biodiversity and the ecosystem for generations to come. Such modeling efforts include projects like EarthCube, which examines the impact of particular actions on specific aspects of the earth’s ecosystem, including its crust and oceans.3. AI can save the world by saving citiesSmart cities, powered by AI platforms, are changing the very fiber of urban areas. AI technology is addressing old social ills in new ways.According to The Motley Fool, companies like NVIDIA plan to use video cameras to connect to AI platforms to improve how cities are managed. For example, it has a Metropolis artificial intelligence platform for cities. It can use those cameras to monitor and discourage crime and improve traffic flow. The article relates how NVIDIA’s partnership in China has upped traffic speed by 11 percent in one test city.Other improvements to cities include using AI and robots to assess and improve a city’s utility infrastructure. Fast Company observes that this technology could help save American water utilities considerable money while driving greater enhancements to water conservation efforts and water quality.In addition, an article by Tech Emergence offers other insights on how AI can improve city living and development. For example, in 2017, GE announced it will provide San Diego with the largest smart city IoT sensor platform, installing an initial 3,200 CityIQ sensor nodes throughout the city. Data from the nodes can be used to help drivers find parking spots, assist first responders and pinpoint hazardous intersections.4. Saving peopleAI bots now being used on social media platforms like Facebook may be saving the lives of people at risk of committing suicide, thus demonstrating how a very inhuman tool can gauge the human need for help. As a Fast Company article explains, Facebook is making an effort to help people through AI technology: “In March, the company announced a pilot project in the U.S. that would leverage AI to proactively identify Facebook posts signaling a user’s suicidal intent and expedite bringing those posts to the community operation team’s attention.”Facebook’s AI tools monitor both text posts and live video for any signs of people at risk of suicide. Which appears to be a very beneficial strategy. The article states that, in one month, Facebook’s AI technology “identified more than 100 instances. All around the globe that required intervention by first responders.” The company “also found that reports accelerated by proactive detection. Those requiring immediate attention. Those have been escalated to first responders twice as fast as those reported by users.”5. Saving human rightsMore and more, organizations are leveraging AI to create social change. An article from TOPBOTS outlines various ways that AI bots are helping address human rights around the world, enhancing lives by raising awareness of social problems and collecting funds to help.For example, the article explains, “Charity:Water teamed up with Lokai and AKQA to create Yeshi, a Facebook Messenger chatbot that humanizes the water crisis in Ethiopia.” After learning about Yeshi’s difficult journey, users can donate funds to Charity:Water through Facebook Messenger.The article also explains how AI can deliver health and social services to more people. GYANT is a Facebook Messenger-based healthbot that guides users through a series of questions about the symptoms they are experiencing to help determine whether they’re likely to have Zika. Rather than wait for an appointment with a healthcare provider, users can get an immediate personalized answer. All this from GYANT to guide their future steps.Then, there is Sensely, a digital nurse bot that supports healthcare professionals by taking on the job of monitoring whether patients are adhering to their prescribed treatments. Lastly, there is Ellie, “a digital therapist … [that] can interview patients. It can detect depression and anxiety by analyzing words, facial expressions, and tone.” Human therapists are still vital. The AI helper can do some of the work and reach more people to provide care.More human than human — AI can save the worldAI addresses social issues in a human way without needing the manpower to do so. It is working toward saving the planet from all angles. This includes reducing deaths, addressing health problems, increasing sustainability and enhancing the quality of life for all.

Cloud mining has become into one of the biggest trends in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. The reason is simple: it makes mining Bitcoin incredibly easy. By using cloud, rather than hardware to mine bitcoin, you can avoid the stress and inconvenience of managing hardware. Instead of using the processing power from hardware, you share the processing power of the cloud space (or more specifically the remote data center). In theory, cloud mining should be much more profitable than mining with your own hardware. However, it’s easy to be caught out. At best some schemes are useless – at worst, they could be seen as a bit of a pyramid scheme. For this reason, it’s essential you do your homework. However, although there are some risks associated with cloud mining, it does have benefits. Arguably it makes Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency in general, more accessible to ordinary people. Provided people get to know the area, what works and what definitely doesn’t it could be a positive opportunity for many people. How to start cloud mining Let’s first take a look at different methods of cloud mining. If you’re going to do it properly, it’s worth taking some time to consider your options. At a top level there are 3 different types of cloud mining. Renting out your hashing power This is the most common form of cloud mining. To do this, you simple ‘rent out’ a certain amount of your computer’s hashing power. In case you don’t know, hashing power is essentially your hardware’s processing power; it’s what allows your computer to use and run algorithms. Hosted mining As the name suggests, this is where you simply use an external machine to mine Bitcoin. To do this, you’ll have to sign up with a cloud mining provider. If you do this, you’ll need to be clear on their terms and conditions, and take care when calculating profitability. Virtual hosted mining Virtual hosted mining is a hybrid approach to cloud mining. To do this, you use a personal virtual server and then install the required software. This approach can be a little more fun, especially if you want to be able to build your own Bitcoin mining set up, but of course this poses challenges too. Depending on what you want to achieve any of these options may be right for you. Which cloud mining provider should you choose? As you’d expect from a trend that’s growing rapidly, there’s a huge number of cloud mining providers out there that you can use. The downside is that there are plenty of dubious providers that aren’t going to be profitable for you. For this reason, it’s best to do your research and read what others have to say. One of the most popular cloud mining providers is Hashflare. With Hashflare, you can buy a number of different types of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. You can also select your ‘mining pool’, which is something many providers won’t let you do. Controlling the profitability of cloud mining can be difficult, so having control over your mining pool could be important. A mining pool is a bit like a hedge fund – a group of people pool together their processing resources, and the ‘pay out’ will be split according to the amount of work put in in order to create what’s called a ‘block’, which is essentially a record or ledger of transactions. Hashflare isn’t the only cloud mining solution available. Genesis Mining is another very high profile provider. It’s incredibly accessible – you can begin a Bitcoin mining contract for just $15.99. Of course, the more you invest the better the deal you’ll get. For a detailed exploration and comparison of cloud mining solutions, this TechRadar article is very useful. Take a look before you make any decisions! How can I ensure cloud mining is profitable? It’s impossible to ensure profitability. Remember – cloud mining providers are out to make a profit. Although you might well make a profit, it’s not necessarily in their interests to be paying money out to you. Calculating cloud mining profitability can be immensely complex. To do it properly you need to be clear on all the elements that are going to impact profitability. This includes: The cryptocurrency you are mining How much mining will cost per unit of hashing power The growth rate of block difficulty How the network hashrate might increase over the length of your mining contract There are lots of mining calculators out there that you can use to calculate how profitable cloud mining is likely to be. This article is particularly good at outlining how you can go about calculating cloud mining profitability. Its conclusion is an interesting take that’s worth considering if you are interested in starting cloud mining: is “it profitable because the underlying cryptocurrency went up, or because the mining itself was profitable?” As the writer points out, if it is the cryptocurrency’s value, then you might just be better off buying the cryptocurrency.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Here” is a familiar place for Grice, who played the final two seasons of his college career at nearby Arizona State University. It was there where he rushed for 1,675 yards and 25 touchdowns and caught 91 passes for 860 yards and 14 scores, developing into the kind of all-purpose back teams can often find a place for.And in Arizona, where there is uncertainty behind starting running back Andre Ellington, those qualities led to interest in the sixth-round pick. “He just gives us another great back,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “Obviously we have to replace Jonathan (Dwyer), and unfortunately that situation has got to take care of itself, but he gives us a guy who had a great preseason in San Diego. “He can catch the ball, he can do the things we want to do, so we like him.”Grice had a modest preseason, gaining 167 yards on 41 carries and catching three passes for 14 yards. That included a 17-carry, 79-yard performance against the Cardinals, where he also caught one pass for five yards.Goodwin said while he did not watch much of Grice while he was at ASU, he did see enough on film to be intrigued, and everyone who went to his Pro Day in Tempe — a group that included running backs coach Stump Mitchell — “all loved him.” 0 Comments Share TEMPE, Ariz. — Marion Grice did not expect to be an Arizona Cardinal.But he is.“I was pretty much coming off of lifting weights and then I got a phone call and it was the Cardinals, and they were asking me if they can get me on the next flight out,” he said Tuesday. “And I got pretty excited, and we started talking from that point on about getting me on the next flight and bringing me out here.” Top Stories “He was kind of a guy that we would like to get, but we didn’t get, obviously,” he said. “But (it’s) good to have him and he’s going to be a great addition to our team.”Grice’s college coach agrees.“Marion being in the Cardinals’ system is going to really be a great fit for him,” Todd Graham said. “So a very good move by them by bringing him here because I just don’t think — there’s not a guy that I’ve coached that I think more of than Marion Grice.”Having been signed off San Diego’s practice squad, Grice will be on the Cardinals’ 53-man roster. It’s a promotion for the rookie, who has yet to appear in a regular season NFL game, and one he is not necessarily surprised to be getting. However, he thought it would come with San Diego, who has lost two of its top backs to injuries over the last couple weeks. In fact, he said his Chargers teammates were talking to him about his likelihood of moving up.“We had a team meeting at one o’clock, but I got the call from the Cardinals before one o’clock, so I had to leave,” he said. Grice figures to have a role with the Cardinals. With the team on bye this week, he’ll have a chance to earn reps while learning the system ahead of the team’s Week 5 matchup with the Denver Broncos. Goodwin said he sees Grice as being similar to Ellington in that he can handle a variety of roles. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “He can still run it as a power back, he can still run it with the outside zone, he’s good with the downhill runs,” he said. “Whatever we ask him to do. He just caught a great pass there at the end of practice right there on kind of a wheel route, and caught it one-handed, it was great. He’s a real athletic kid and he’s going to bring a lot to the table.”Grice, who is confident the Cardinals will be able to maximize his skills, is just glad to have a chance.“I was pretty excited,” he said of joining the team as part of the 53-man roster. “To get an opportunity to come here and compete and play — that was my biggest thing.“I just wanted to play for the longest time.”Arizona Sports’ Craig Grialou contributed to this report read more

already-injected synthol or its equivalent will remain in his muscles for the next five to seven years The former inmates would also be responsible for the cost of the treatment while they are on parole2A former Minister of Police Affairs and governorship candidate under the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Yobe State in 2007 Alhaji Adamu Maina Waziri has stated that the party will capitalize on the under-performance of the All Progressives Congress APC-led administration in its bid to regain power in 2019 The PDP BoT member disclosed this in an interview with the Sun newspaper where he admitted that the party had made some serious mistakes that led to its defeat in the 2015 general elections adding that for the PDP or any party to rise up to the APC in 2019 with President Muhammadu Buhari in the saddle they must come with clean hands He said “First the PDP must be led by people of honour and integrity “Secondly the candidate of the PDP must be somebody who should stand up with credentials that are same with the current President “Thirdly the party and its candidate must understand that money cannot replace credibility It cannot replace good behaviour “If it were on account of money alone PDP would not have lost the election People should not be saying that we need a national chairman who is a money bag We need somebody with integrity “We need somebody who is intelligent well lettered and who will be in a position to confront the leadership of the APC on equal terms “We will not be sending our worst eleven Many leaders of PDP in Wadata plaza have been guests of EFCC In a situation where the world is expecting Nigeria to redeem itself from the abyss of corruption it has found itself we should put forward people who are credible to run the party” The former minister of state for Agriculture claimed that some of the party members including him spoke against Jonathan’s candidature when some elders from the region openly urged and campaigned for the former President in the last election He added “There are always two sides to the coin We had people who campaigned for Jonathan and we lost “Those people are now saying yes we made a mistake We had people who didn’t campaign for Jonathan and we lost” Waziri maintained that the PDP must take responsibility for what has happened adding that there is no need living in self-denial “PDP should come to terms with its past misdeeds and offer the necessary apologies and entreaties to Nigerians “At the end of the day no matter what you do you are a human being you are bound to make mistakes” He said the party must accept that mistakes were made and seek measures to amend them by not falling into traps Waziri said that having lost the presidency and two-third of states in the last elections the party is “hopelessly weak” but added that there is hope of doing better in 2019 than it performed in 2015 He added “Possibly if the APC will continue the way it is doing we will win the presidency or we will give them a fight for their money” He further explained that there are some mistakes the incumbent APC-led government is making now that will easily bring the PDP back in power saying that the 2016 budget was one of those mistakes According to him “The budget is one of them We are not talking of the delay of the budget but the controversy that has dogged it which ought not to be exhibited by a party that has an overwhelming majority in the National Assembly “Secondly the economy has not been favourable Every Nigerian knows that his or her standard of living was better in 2015 than as it is in 2016 I am not listing out the reasons “Thirdly there is no cohesion in the APC Unfortunately there is also lack of cohesion in the PDP “Fourthly the APC through President Buhari has set a bar of integrity We must reach that bar to be a competitor to the APC” Abia government has slated December 2013 for the first Abia Carnival Mr Cosmos Ndukwe the Chief of Staff to Gov Theodore Orji said on

the distribution of vehicles to deserving Abia Youths at no cost to the beneficiaries and more than 400 youths have benefitted from that gesture “The governor in furtherance of his desire to carry out a salient and extremely fruitful restoration and transformation of Abia has also approved the hosting of the first ever Abia Carnival 2013 with the theme ‘Showcasing our Cultural Heritage’ slated to hold from Dec 13 and Dec 14’’ He said that the tourism potential of the state was often not appreciated adding that the present administration had done well in that sector “Many are not aware of the rich cultural heritage that abounds in Abia Many cannot imagine the tourism potential we have conscientiously garnered in the last few years “This carnival will apart from offering Abia people a dynamic tool for self-expression and exploration provide also a platform for us to prove to the world that tourism destination we have become “It will also feature rich cultural displays There will be financial rewards to Abia citizens that have distinguished themselves especially in the social world “The reward will be to boost their endeavours while serving as a formidable springboard for upcoming ones We intend to gather our best together for the world to appreciate’’ Ndukwe urged residents of the state and other organisations to take advantage of the event to make their presence felt in the state “It is expected that our corporate friends and especially distinguished Abia people both at home and in the Diaspora will identify with this noble cause as we are kick-starting it from today “The government is already talking with some of them to see how they can key into this great opportunity to help themselves and to show-case their products especially the multinationals’’ if
