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

Leonid Belyaev CEO Play Russian OTT service provi

first_imgLeonid Belyaev, CEO PlayRussian OTT service provider Play plans to introduce a 4K service later this year, focusing initially on an electronic sell-through model, according to Leonid Belyaev, CEO. The OTT operator also plans to unveil a new linear channel-based offering next month and to launch a premium offering to international markets, possibly next year.Speaking on the sidelines of the Digital TV CEE conference in Budapest this morning, Belyaev told DTVE that Play was in the final stages of negotiations to secure content rights for the 4K service from Hollywood studios.He said that the service, which will offer first-run Hollywood movies, would require additional security measures. Belyaev said that Play was well-served in this case by its focus on smart TVs as its primary distribution channel, as these platforms are inherently more secure that other devices that may, for example, require HDMI connectivity to deliver the content to the TV screen.The service will be launched in the third or fourth quarter. One key issue currently is the lack of availability of 4K content. Belyaev said Play “wants to be able to tell people to buy a new 4K TV”. He said the bandwidth requirement would be between 15-25Mbps. “This willstart in big cities where optical fibre networks are available for a reasonable price,” he said. The 4K TV service will be delivered via adaptive bit-rate streaming, encoded in HEVC.Belyaev said he believed 4K would deliver a premium of 30-40% per title on the existing service. Play will focus on electronic sell-through initially, a model it has already implemented for its existing catalogue. “We’ve done EST from the inception. It’s surprisingly popular because people associate it with owning DVDs. Renting on the other hand was never very big in Russia,” he said.Content will be stored in Play’s proprietary – but UltraViolet-compatible – digital locker, Belyaev said.Belyaev said that Play is looking at international expansion, possibly starting next year, focusing on a premium, niche offering for the European market. “We are looking at international expansion next year, starting in Europe,” he said. “We can test our belief in smart TV and see how it resonates.”Belyaev said Play would look at transactional rather than subscription-based services internationally. “We don’t believe in the SVOD model for the long run. Rights are getting more expensive everywhere, but that’s not necessarily the case with transactional rights.”Belyaev said Play would also unveil a new linear channel-based service on July 15. “It will be a linear TV service, but not a traditional linear service, and it will have a new brand,” he said.Play has about five million registered users in Russia, of whom about 300,000 pay for services. In addition to its transactional offering, it provides a RUB500 a month subscription service, with the ability to pay for transactional content on top. About 90% of users access the service via smart TVs.last_img read more

Updated at 745 pm ETDr Leana Wen the health c

first_imgUpdated at 7:45 p.m. ETDr. Leana Wen, the health commissioner for the city of Baltimore, has been named the new president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. It will be the first time in nearly five decades that a doctor is the head of Planned Parenthood, according to the organization. She’s replacing longtime President Cecile Richards, who announced in January that she would be stepping down. Wen was an emergency room physician before she transitioned to the world of public health. She will continue to serve as Baltimore’s health commissioner for one month before she departs, according to a statement from the city. In her new role, Wen will also be the president of Planned Parenthood’s advocacy arm, which lobbies for reproductive health issues, including wider access to abortion. In a video released by Planned Parenthood, Wen describes how when she was a child, her family immigrated to the U.S. from China. The new arrivals relied on Medicaid, food stamps — and medical care from Planned Parenthood. Then she shared a personal story from her medical career. “In the ER I saw what happens every day when people don’t have access to the basic right to health care,” Wen said. “I remember seeing a young woman lying on a stretcher, pulseless and unresponsive, because of a home abortion — because she was too scared to seek medical care. “I did everything I could to resuscitate her, but she died.” Wen says in the video that she “wanted to fight for our most vulnerable individuals on a bigger scale,” which is why she decided to become Baltimore’s health commissioner. Wen, who has been a contributor to NPR’s health blog for more than five years, once wrote about that choice to leave clinical practice behind: “Policy decisions that affect everyday life are the ones that can do the most for people’s health. For all the billions of dollars invested in new technologies, it’s still our environment — indeed, our zip codes — that predicts more about our health than our genetic codes. Where people live, work and play is where we can do the most to prevent disease and ensure wellness. … “The move from academia and daily medical practice to city government presents a daunting challenge, but it’s one that I have spent my entire life preparing to face. Given where I come from and what I’ve seen, I just can’t accept geography or circumstance as destiny.” Now, she’s moving onto the national stage.”A core principle in public health is to go where the need is,” Wen wrote in a statement released by Baltimore. “The single biggest public health catastrophe of our time is the threat to women’s health and the health of our most vulnerable communities.””I have seen firsthand the lifesaving work it does for our most vulnerable communities. As a doctor, I will ensure we continue to provide high-quality health care, including the full range of reproductive care, and will fight to protect the access of millions of patients who rely on Planned Parenthood.”NPR’s All Things Considered followed Wen’s work as health commissioner for a monthslong series about health issues in Baltimore. At the end of that series, Wen told NPR’s Audie Cornish what she’d learned on the job. “I’ve learned that I like a fight,” she said. As a doctor, trying to save lives, and as health commissioner, trying to advance legislation, change public perceptions and start new programs.”I like a fight, and I’m good at it, and that is what motivates me,” she said. As the new head of Planned Parenthood, Wen will certainly find no shortage of fights. “She’s stepping in at a time of great controversy surrounding abortion rights,” NPR’s Sarah McCammon notes. “With the makeup of the Supreme Court changing, a lot of abortion rights opponents are hoping to restrict abortion, hoping that more severe abortion restrictions could hold up under a newly configured court — especially if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is indeed confirmed to the court, as he’s expected to be very soon,” McCammon says.As McCammon wrote in January, Planned Parenthood “has long been a lightning rod for criticism from abortion-rights opponents, who’ve made cutting public funding for the group a major priority.” McCammon notes that federal funds generally cannot pay for abortions, but Planned Parenthood receives public money to cover the other services its clinics provide, such as birth control and cancer screenings. President Trump made a campaign promise to “defund” Planned Parenthood, which he has pursued both through Congress and through executive branch rule-making. He’s proposed allowing federal family planning funds to go to groups that oppose contraception. Planned Parenthood has sued the Trump administration over cuts in sex education funding and shifts in family planning funding. As commissioner, Wen notes in the Planned Parenthood video, she helped sue the Trump administration to preserve funding for Baltimore’s sex education programs. Wen and her husband have a 1-year-old son.While she was pregnant, Wen wrote for NPR about the astronomical cost of pregnancy and childbirth for women who don’t have insurance. Her most recent commentary was about the importance of supporting nursing moms. The president of the antiabortion group Susan B. Anthony List, Marjorie Dannenfelser, released a statement saying, “Planned Parenthood’s selection of a doctor to be their next president is an opportunity to clean up their sorry record.”She said Planned Parenthood specializes in “ending the lives of unborn children, not offering lifesaving health care,” and the “best thing Dr. Wen could do for Planned Parenthood is to help them live up to their claim of being an authentic women’s health care provider.” Copyright 2018 NPR.

High sodium intake increases gastrointestinal bloating

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Jun 27 2019A study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that individuals reported more gastrointestinal bloating when they ate a diet high in salt.The scientists re-analyzed data from a large clinical trial, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension-Sodium trial (DASH-Sodium)- conducted two decades ago, and found that high sodium intake increased bloating among trial participants. The researchers also found that the high-fiber DASH diet increased bloating among trial participants compared to a low-fiber control diet.The study was published June 17 in the American Journal of Gastroenterology. Bloating is one of the leading gastrointestinal complaints in the U.S. and can be exacerbated in some people by a high-fiber diet; our results suggest that they might be able to reduce that bloating, without compromising on healthy fiber, by lowering their sodium intake.”Study senior author Noel Mueller, PhD, MPH, an assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Bloomberg School Bloating is estimated to affect up to a third of U.S. adults overall, and more than 90 percent of those with irritable bowel syndrome. Bloating features a buildup of excess gas in the gut. The production of gas can be attributed to gas-producing gut bacteria breaking down fiber. There is also some evidence that sodium can stimulate bloating. The study by Mueller and colleagues is the first to examine sodium as a cause of bloating in the context of low- and high-fiber diets.The study analyzed data from the DASH-Sodium trial, which was co-led by Bloomberg School researcher Lawrence Appel, MD, MPH, and sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Conducted at four clinical centers during 1998-99, it tested the DASH diet, a high-fiber diet which is relatively low in fat and high in fruits, nuts, and vegetables, against a low-fiber control diet. Each of the two diets was tested at three levels of sodium, and the 412 participants all had high blood pressure at the trial start. The trial was set up chiefly to determine the effect of dietary sodium and other factors on blood pressure, but included data on participants’ reports of bloating-;data that Mueller and colleagues analyzed for the new study.Related StoriesHealthy high-fiber diet could reduce preeclampsia riskImplanted device uses microcurrent to exercise heart muscle in cardiomyopathy patientsCancer incidence among children and young adults with congenital heart diseaseThe team found that prior to the trial, 36.7 percent of the participants reported bloating, which is more or less in line with national surveys of bloating prevalence. They found too that the high-fiber DASH diet increased the risk of bloating by about 41 percent, compared to the low-fiber control diet-;and men were more susceptible to this effect, compared to women. But the scientists also determined that sodium was a factor in bloating. When they combined data from the DASH and control diets, and compared the highest level of sodium intake to the lowest, they found that the high-sodium versions of those diets collectively increased the risk of bloating by about 27 percent compared to the low-sodium versions.The key implication is that reducing sodium can be an effective way to reduce bloating-;and in particular may be able to help people maintain a healthy, high-fiber diet.How sodium causes bloating is still being studied. Salt causes water retention, and that may be one factor. “We hypothesize that sodium intake also alters the gut microbiome in a manner that modifies bacterial sulfide production,” Mueller says.He and his team are now researching how bloating is affected by the major dietary macronutrients: protein, carbs and fat.

Researchers 3D print electronics and cells directly on skin

Researchers also successfully printed biological cells on the skin wound of a mouse. The technique could lead to new medical treatments for wound healing and direct printing of grafts for skin disorders.The research study was published today on the inside back cover of the academic journal Advanced Materials.”We are excited about the potential of this new 3D-printing technology using a portable, lightweight printer costing less than $400,” said Michael McAlpine, the study’s lead author and the University of Minnesota Benjamin Mayhugh Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering. “We imagine that a soldier could pull this printer out of a backpack and print a chemical sensor or other electronics they need, directly on the skin. It would be like a ‘Swiss Army knife’ of the future with everything they need all in one portable 3D printing tool.”One of the key innovations of the new 3D-printing technique is that this printer can adjust to small movements of the body during printing. Temporary markers are placed on the skin and the skin is scanned. The printer uses computer vision to adjust to movements in real-time. Provided by University of Minnesota One of the key innovations of the new 3-D-printing technique on skin is that the printer uses computer vision to track and adjust to movements in real-time. Credit: McAlpine group, University of Minnesota “No matter how hard anyone would try to stay still when using the printer on the skin, a person moves slightly and every hand is different,” McAlpine said. “This printer can track the hand using the markers and adjust in real-time to the movements and contours of the hand, so printing of the electronics keeps its circuit shape.”Another unique feature of this 3D-printing technique is that it uses a specialized ink made of silver flakes that can cure and conduct at room temperature. This is different from other 3D-printing inks that need to cure at high temperatures (up to 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit) and would burn the hand.To remove the electronics, the person can simply peel off the electronic device with tweezers or wash it off with water.In addition to electronics, the new 3D-printing technique paves the way for many other applications, including printing cells to help those with skin diseases. McAlpine’s team partnered with University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics doctor and medical school Dean Jakub Tolar, a world-renowned expert on treating rare skin disease. The team successfully used a bioink to print cells on a mouse skin wound, which could lead to advanced medical treatments for those with skin diseases. In a groundbreaking new study, researchers at the University of Minnesota used a customized, low-cost 3D printer to print electronics on a real hand for the first time. The technology could be used by soldiers on the battlefield to print temporary sensors on their bodies to detect chemical or biological agents or solar cells to charge essential electronics.

New US tariffs a headache for foreign automakers

first_imgIn 2017, about 17.2 million vehicles were sold in the United States, of which nearly 8.7 million were imports US President Donald Trump’s threat to impose steep tariffs on auto imports will hit foreign automakers that export a large number of vehicles to the US market, but many also manufacture cars domestically. Explore further Volkswagen rejects ‘protectionism’ after US car tariff threat Most of these brands, such as Mercedes and BMW as well as Nissan, Honda and Volkswagen, have at least one auto plant on US soil, where they employ tens of thousands of workers. These automakers have invested billions of dollars in their US facilities. Toyota and Mazda announced at the start of the year plans to build a $1.6 billion joint facility in Alabama that will be capable of producing 300,000 vehicles a year.Volvo Cars, which plans to open a plant in South Carolina by the end of the year, has warned that new import duties would affect its investment plans.US auto marketIn 2017, about 17.2 million vehicles were sold in the United States, according to AutoData, which compiles figures from manufacturers and dealers.Nearly 8.7 million of these were imports, according to the Center for Automotive Research, mostly from Mexico and Canada— partners in the North American Free Trade Agreement—as well as from Japan, Germany and South Korea.Since the start of this year, the share of domestically-manufactured autos sold in the US has fallen to 50.1 percent, down from 51.1 percent over the same period in 2017, according to Edmunds.com.At least 82 percent of Volkswagens sold in the US were imports, according to Edmunds, as well as 55 percent of Toyotas, 57 percent of Hyundais, 70 percent of Mercedes-Benz and 68 percent for BMW.On the other hand, more than half the cars sold in the US by the “Big Three” in Detroit were made locally: 80 percent for Ford, 60 percent for General Motors and 55 percent for Fiat Chrysler.Honda is the sole foreign automaker manufacturing a large majority of its locally-sold cars in the United States.Major exporterThe US auto industry is the largest US manufacturing sector which employs about eight million workers, directly or indirectly through related industries.It also is one of the largest export sectors, according to the American Automotive Policy Council, an industry body representing the major US manufacturers, General Motors, Ford and Fiat Chrysler, and foreign automakers.Auto exports virtually doubled between 2009 and 2015 to $137.7 billion from $74.1 billion, according to AAPC, supporting 771,000 US jobs.BMW and Daimler, maker of the Mercedes-Benz, notably send US-built cars to the European Union and China.BMW, which says its Spartanburg, South Carolina plant is the world’s largest, exported 70 percent of the 371,284 autos manufactured at the site last year, or about 272,346, representing about $10 billion in total exports.Domestic manufacturingToyota, which employs more than 36,000 people, has 10 factories at locations in Alabama, California, Mississippi and Texas. It produces 1.2 million cars and sells 2.4 million, according to 2017 figures, with the difference made up by imports.Honda, which employs 4,000, has factories in Alabama, George, Indiana and Ohio and produces 1.2 million, selling 1.6 million.German giant Volkswagen, which has a Tennessee factory with the capacity to produce 150,000 units annually, did not disclose production figures but sold 339,679 autos. It employs 2,444 workers.Daimler maintains auto plants in Alabama, Indiana, and South Carolina and has 4,900 local workers. In 2017, it produced more than 286,000 cars and sold 337,246.BMW, which employs nearly 9,0000 workers, produced 371,284 automobiles in 2017 in the US, and sold 305,685.Nissan maintains two factories in Mississippi in Tennessee and produced 930,000 autos, selling $1.6 million. It employed 14,400 workers.Auto importsVolkswagen luxury brands Audi and Porsche have no US factories and as a result import all the vehicles sold in the US market. In 2017, Audi sold 226,511 units while Porsche brought 55,420 to market.center_img © 2018 AFP Citation: New US tariffs a headache for foreign automakers (2018, May 25) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-05-tariffs-headache-foreign-automakers.html This document is subject to copyright.
