Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 12 Comments   Share   On the rise, Rice left the desert to sign with Tampa Bay, joining what some consider to be one of the best defenses of the 2000s consisting of Hall of Famers Derrick Brooks and Warren Sapp as well as All-Pro defensive backs Ronde Barber and John Lynch.With the Buccaneers, Rice won a Super Bowl and recorded double-digit sacks in five consecutive seasons.He has not played since the 2007 season but expressed serious interest about making a comeback in 2017.Quarterback Jake Plummer (1997-2002)Signed with Denver in 2003Plummer’s 30-52 record was not what the Cardinals anticipated after spending a second-round pick on him in 1997. However, he was the only Cardinals quarterback to make the playoffs between 1983 and 2007.Arizona’s 1998 NFC Wild Card win was the franchise’s first playoff appearance since 1982 and the first playoff win since 1947.The Broncos signed Plummer to a seven-year deal during the 2003 offseason and his record improved drastically in four seasons with Denver. He went 39-15, reaching the playoffs in each of the first three seasons before being benched 11 games into the 2006 season.Safety Antrel Rolle (2005-09)Signed with New York Giants in 2010 A former first-round pick, Rolle was one of top players at his position in the NFC during his time in Arizona. He recorded 12 interceptions but what stands out is that he returned four of those for touchdowns.A starter on the Cardinals 2008 Super Bowl team, Rolle made the Pro Bowl in the final year of his contract and was primed for a large payday.In the words of The Godfather and Don Vito Corleone, the New York Giants “made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.” New York signed Rolle to a five-year, $37 million contract that made him the highest paid safety in the NFL at the time.Rolle recorded 14 interceptions and five forced fumbles in five seasons with the Giants and was part of the team that won the Super Bowl in 2011.Defensive end Calais Campbell (2008-16)(AP Photo/John Froschauer)Signed with Jacksonville in 2017The longest-tenured Cardinal on this list, Campbell spent nine years in Arizona. Selected in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft, Campbell recorded at least five sacks in each of his nine seasons with the Cardinals, missing six games in that span.He became both a seasoned veteran and fan favorite with the Cardinals. In the offseason of 2017, Arizona briefly exercised its franchise tag on pass rusher Chandler Jones before signing him to a five-year, $83 million extension. Following Jones’ extension, Campbell hit the free agent market.

(AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) As free agency winds down and the 2018 NFL Draft approaches, the Arizona Cardinals have undergone changes to their roster.This year, like any other, saw the Cardinals welcome in new faces while saying goodbye to others that are more familiar.Here are some of the franchise’s biggest names to leave Arizona in free agency.Defensive end Simeon Rice (1996-2000)Signed with Tampa in 2001Having recorded 122 sacks over 12 seasons, Rice was one of the most-feared defensive ends in the NFL. Selected No. 3 overall by Arizona in the 1996 NFL Draft, Rice spent five years of his career with the Cardinals. While he was named Rookie of the Year, his best season in Arizona came in 1999 when he forced five fumbles and posted a career-high 16.5 sacks. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Jacksonville signed Campbell to a four-year deal worth $60 million. In his first year with the Jaguars, he made that contract look wise. Campbell reached a career high in sacks (14.5) and became the backbone of one of the top defenses in the NFL.Safety Tyrann Mathieu (2013-17)(AP Photo/Ralph Freso)Signed with Houston in 2018Arizona’s most recent impact free-agent departure was Mathieu. Drafted by the Cardinals in 2013, Mathieu spent five seasons in Arizona.A talented defensive back, Mathieu had 11 interceptions and four forced fumbles in five seasons with the Cardinals. He was an All-Pro in 2015 but knee injuries limited his time on the field and eventually impacted his style of play.Mathieu signed with Houston this offseason after turning down a pay cut from the Cardinals.Honorable MentionsWide receiver David Boston (1999-2002) – Signed with San DiegoLinebacker Karlos Dansby (2004-09) – Signed with Miami Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

If You Crash Your Tesla to Save a Life Elon Musk Might

first_img Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business If You Crash Your Tesla to Save a Life, Elon Musk Might Foot the Bill February 16, 2017 Buying a Tesla certainly isn’t cheap — the 2017 Model S starts at $68,000 and tops out at $138,000. So it stands to reason that the vehicles are probably fairly expensive to fix, too. But if you wreck your Tesla while being a Good Samaritan, Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk may happily foot the bill.This week, a Tesla owner in Munich, Germany, used his car to save the life of a fellow driver on the Autobahn.Related: Elon Musk Personally Cancels ‘Super Rude’ Customer’s Tesla Model X OrderWhen 41-year-old Manfred Kick realized that the driver of a nearby Volkswagen Passat was unconscious at the wheel, he pulled in front of the vehicle and braked until both cars came to a safe stop. He then proceeded to give the ailing driver CPR and had other passersby call the fire department for help, the Muenchner Merkur reported.Both men are fine now, but Kick’s quick thinking landed them with combined damages of more than $10,000.

EU Lawmakers to Vote on Google BreakUp Motion

first_img Reuters 2 min read This story originally appeared on Reuters November 24, 2014 EU lawmakers will likely vote on Thursday on a motion proposing the break-up of Google and other Internet technology companies, increasing political pressure on the bloc’s antitrust regulators to take a stronger line on the group.The parliament has no power to dismember a firm. But the vote, underlining widespread concern among EU politicians about American dominance of the Internet industry, would be a significant public challenge to Google’s business in Europe.Andreas Schwab, a German Christian Democrat lawmaker at the European Parliament, and Spanish liberal Ramon Tremosa unveiled a draft of their resolution last week, saying separating search engines from other commercial services would ensure a level playing field for rivals in Europe.The conservatives, liberals and socialists, who command a large majority of the parliamentary seats, will work out a joint motion on Tuesday and expect to debate the issue in parliament on Wednesday and vote on it on Thursday, Tremosa’s aide said on Monday.European politicians and some competing companies have complained that Google’s dominance allows it to promote its own services at rivals’ expense, and attacked it on a range of issues including its tax and privacy policies.Google has regularly said it faces fierce competition in a constantly-changing market.The parliament’s proposal to the commission, if passed, would put pressure on new EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager to take a tougher line than her predecessor in resolving complaints against Google.Vestager’s predecessor, Joaquin Almunia, held four years of investigations, triggered by complaints from rivals including Microsoft. German publishing group Axel Springer has also complained about Google’s market power.The European Commission has never ordered the break-up of any company for anti-competitive practices.Kurt Lauk, the head of the pro-business wing of Germany’s conservative party CDU, which is also Schwab’s party, criticized the proposal to break up Google.”Instead of exploiting the opportunities of the Web, some lawmakers in the European Parliament are nursing their phobias,” he told Saturday’s edition of German paper Handelsblatt.”Threatening Google and other large Internet companies who are in fierce competition with each other, is a loser’s debate,” Lauk was quoted as saying.(Reporting by Foo Yun Chee; editing by Philip Blenkinsop and Andrew Heavens) Add to Queue International Business Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful.center_img Next Article EU Lawmakers to Vote on Google Break-Up Motion Image credit: Reuters | Francois Lenoir Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand –shares Enroll Now for $5last_img read more

Cooking vegetables with extra virgin olive oil favors absorption release of bioactive

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 14 2019Cooking vegetables in the sofrito (sauté) with extra virgin olive oil favors the absorption and release of bioactive compounds of its traditional ingredients (garlic, onion and tomato), according to the study conducted by a research team of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences at the University of Barcelona (UB), from the Physiopathology of Obesity and Nutrition Networking Biomedical Research Centre (CIBERobn) and the Diabetes and Associated Metabolic Diseases Networking Biomedical Research (CIBERDEM), led by the tenure lecturer Rosa M. Lamuela. These results, published in the science journal Molecules, allow an insight on the mechanisms with which gastronomy could play a relevant role in the health-improving effects of the Mediterranean Diet.The Mediterranean diet, known for a high consumption of phytochemicals from vegetables, fruits and legumes, has been correlated to health-improving effects in cardiovascular and metabolic health. This relation is mainly based on the results of the PREDIMED study, a multicentre clinical trial carried out from 2003 to 2011 with more than 7,000 people and in which Rosa M. Lamuela took part too.However, the effects regarding health in the Mediterranean diet have been hard to reproduce in non-Mediterranean populations, probably, according to the researchers, due differences in cooking practice. Therefore, researchers try to assess whether the Mediterranean gastronomy can bring health benefits, not only for its food but also for the way they are cooked.Sofrito, a key element in the Mediterranean diet In this context, the objective of the study was to assess the effect of the extra virgin olive oil in bioactive compounds in tomato, onion and garlic -traditional ingredients in sofrito, one of the key cooking techniques in the Mediterranean diet. According to the researchers, this sauce has forty different phenolic compounds and a high amount of carotenoids, and its consumption is associated with an improvement of the cardiovascular risk parameters and insulin sensitivity. Related StoriesReplacing a small amount of red meat with healthier foods may improve life expectancyAlmost 3 million deaths linked to low fruit and vegetable intake, warns studyStudy reveals link between inflammatory diet and colorectal cancer riskFrom vegetables to olive oil The study also found out a new trait of olive oil. So far, researchers had stated that this oil and onion can produce isomers -molecules with the same molecular formula but with different traits- from carotenoids, variants which are more bio-available and have a higher antioxidant capacity. However, the study proved that oil plays an essential role in this process, not only in carotenoids, but also in polyphenols, which go from vegetables to the oil.Anti-inflammatory effects These results could explain the causes for which previous studies by this research group had stated that the presence of oil increases the anti-inflammatory effect in the tomato sauce. “We saw that this increase can occur due the migration of bioactive compounds (carotenoids and polyphenols) from the tomato to the oil during the cooking process, which favors the absorption of these compounds”, concludes José Fernando Rinaldi de Alvarenga, INSA-UB member and first author of the study.Source:University of BarcelonaJournal reference:Alvarenga, J F. et al. (2019) Using Extra Virgin Olive Oil to Cook Vegetables Enhances Polyphenol and Carotenoid Extractability: A Study Applying the sofrito Technique. Molecules. The main result of the study is that cooking vegetables with extra virgin olive oil favors the bioactive compounds, such as carotenoids and polyphenols that are present in vegetables we find in sofrito, to move to the olive oil, which enables the absorption and bioactivity of these compounds.”Rosa M.

Womens work in agriculture seems to have negative impact on household nutrition

first_imgProf Rao’s research draws on primary data from 12 villages in two Indian districts, Wardha (Maharashtra) and Koraput (Odisha) between 2014-2016. The study villages comprise a mix of castes and ethnicities, all with distinctive cultures and livelihoods, from land-owning cultivators to landless groups who survive by engaging in wage labor. Malnutrition is high in both areas, with near or more than 50 per cent of children underweight. In both regions, women account for nearly all the household work, such as bathing and feeding children, washing clothes and collecting water.Related StoriesNew therapeutic food boosts key growth-promoting gut microbes in malnourished childrenClinEpiDB releases data from MAL-ED study that addresses childhood malnutritionGut-boosting food may put an end to childhood malnutrition worldwideIn Wardha, women harvest cotton manually, but the semi-arid region has reported severe agrarian distress over the past decade. Moreover, the smell of cotton and cotton dust causes headaches and leaves workers with no appetite or desire to cook or eat, which has implications for the rest of the household.In Koraput, located in the semi-humid tropics, literacy rates and other human development indicators are low. People in this region work, on average, close to 13 hours a day, resulting in sleep deprivation, especially during the peak agricultural seasons of planting and harvesting.As Koraput participant Kamala Paroja said: “We leave for our fields for transplantation early in the morning. There is no time to go to the forest to collect vegetables or greens, and no time to cook. We eat once a day – rice and ambli (sour gruel of rice flour and tamarind).”Prof Rao said in order to improve women’s lives and household nutrition and health outcomes, policies need to be context-specific, taking into consideration factors such as caste and location. Regardless, though, policies must aim to reduce the time- and effort-intensity of women’s agricultural work.Prof Rao said: “The lack of attention to women’s time as a key factor in child nutrition outcomes is perhaps the main reason for the persistence of poor nutritional outcomes despite economic growth.”Infrastructural support that can reduce the drudgery and effort/time intensity of tasks, especially cooking, as well as clean energy and drinking water, alongside strengthening child-care services, will help India move toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of reducing hunger and stopping intergenerational nutritional deprivation.”This article is part of the gender research in India generated by the Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) Research Consortium, led by the M.S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF). The project is funded by UK aid from the UK government. Source:University of East Anglia This new research examines how social identity, seasonality and context shape women’s agricultural work, as well as food intakes and feeding practices.Women’s agricultural work could potentially have negative outcomes, especially for the young child whose nutrition depends more on the mother’s time for breastfeeding and supplementary feeding. The double burden of work and care often leads to a time trade-off between the two.” Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 26 2019Recognition of Indian women’s roles in both agriculture and domestic work is key to improving household nutrition outcomes, according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA).New research concludes women’s work in agriculture potentially has a negative impact on household nutrition, through a combination of reduced time for care work and seasonal energy deficits.The findings are part of a study led by Prof Nitya Rao, professor of gender and development in the University of East Anglia’s (UEA) School of International Development.In most of rural India, women work as agricultural and family farm laborers, in addition to performing nearly all the childcare and household duties. Often men have gone to work in urban areas, leaving women to balance agricultural and household work, including food gathering and preparation.Overall, women’s work in agriculture seems to have a negative impact on household nutrition, through a combination of reduced time for care work and seasonal energy deficits. Longer working hours for women or increased work intensity can have detrimental effects on their own health and, in turn, their ability to care for their children. This leads to poor child- and household-level nutrition outcomes.The study examines the intersections of gender with other forms of social identity and inequality. The paper titled, ‘Gendered time, seasonality and nutrition: Insights from two Indian districts’, is published on June 26, 2019 in the journal Feminist Economics, a leading peer-reviewed journal that provides an open forum for dialogue and debate about feminist economic perspectives.In India, class, caste and ethnicity play important roles in shaping access to resources, especially land. Those structural factors also determine women’s agency, social norms around appropriate behavior, notions of care and food cultures.Prof Nitya Rao, Professor of Gender and Development, University of East Anglia’s (UEA) School of International Development:last_img read more

Prior to this sudden bullish development, Elsoft’s technical outlook was not showing the best fortunes.The stock had been on a decline since falling off a peak of RM1.48 on Nov 21, 2018.The protracted downtrend meant the the moving averages had taken on negative crossings, which remain unresolved, and continue to suggest weakness in the overall price trend.For the short-term however, the rally remains intact given the improving momentum, and the positive sentiment has yet to subside despite the profit-taking that saw the counter close with a mere one sen gain yesterday. Looking at the technical indicators, the slow-stochastic momentum index has spiked up closer to overbought conditions at 78 points. The sharp vertical rise indicates that the growth may continue in extended overbought mode.The 14-day relative strength index has also risen to overbought conditions at 85 points and looks headed for more extreme trading conditions. The daily moving average convergence/divergence line has risen sharply off the signal line in a sign that the uptrend has firmed.At present, the 200-day SMA continues to be a stiff hurdle for the share price, as reflected in Friday’s profit-taking.Should this hurdle be surpassed however, the share price will target RM1.17.The 100-day SMA is a resistance-turned-support at 93 sen while lower still, support can be found near the convergence of rising short-term SMAs at 81 sen.The comments above do not represent a recommendation to buy or sell.center_img Related News Support Line 11 Jul 2019 Support Line ELSOFT Research Bhd (code: 0090) surged on Thursday and yesterday as a fresh buying catalayst pulled investor attention into the counter.The stock rose as much as 33.33% to pull clear of several resistance points and return it to a bullish outlook.
