Weather Eye Northwest weather remains difficult for forecasters

first_img“The Rise and Fall of Weather Forecasting.” That sounds like a good title for a book, especially after the variety of weather we have endured the past week or so and with the forecasts of windstorms and snowstorms and not really much of either materialized.I started a book on Northwest weather and haven’t completed it as I ventured into writing my first fiction novel. But I will return to the weather book eventually, which will talk among other things about the ups and downs of weather forecasting here in the Pacific Northwest.There was more kinds of weather around the Northwest on Wednesday than I can describe in this column but everything from rain, snow, hail, thunder, winds, flooding, blizzards to name a few. A large storm off the coast fueled high winds and surf along the coastal strip and heavy snow in the Cascades. Even the Columbia River Gorge received upwards of six inches of snow from the Oregon towns of Cascade Locks to Hood River.The combination of southerly winds and lack of heavy precipitation to bring down the snow level eliminated the threat of snow here in Clark County, except at the highest elevations. Snow did fall in the Olympia-to-Everett areas early Wednesday, however.We aren’t through with the active weather as more rain and wind and low-elevation snow daunts the Northwest. As heavier precipitation falls, snow levels behind the cold front will drop again to the Coast Range and foothills. Snow levels remain low through the weekend.last_img read more

Clouds delay Midnight Sun Baseball Game

first_imgFairbanks annual Midnight Sun Baseball Game continues Wednesday night after being suspended early that morning due to low light.Download AudioThe Alaska Goldpanners are off to a strong start in the 111th edition of the Midnight Sun Baseball Game at Fairbanks Growden Park. The home team is leading the Kenai Peninsula Oilers 8 to nothing through 6 innings, in the suspended game.With 6 innings done and a team ahead, the game could have been considered complete, but as clouds blocked the midnight sun after 1 AM, umpires and coaches instead opted to halt play for half an hour, and then, when conditions didn’t improve, rather than break tradition by turning on the stadium lights, delayed the remainder of the game until tonight.The final 3 innings of the Midnight Sun Game will be followed by a second game on Wednesday night at Growden Park.last_img read more

Jet Airways lenders may be facing dilemma of writing off 80 dues

first_imgJet Airways aircraft are seen parked at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, India, April 13, 2019. The airline shut down all operations from April 17. REUTERS/Anushree Fadnavis/File PhotoThe lenders to grounded private airline Jet Airways may have tactically erred in failing to keep the airline airborne by releasing emergency funds, some circles believe. The airline management suspended all flights from Wednesday (April 17) after the debt-laden carrier failed to secure operational funds from the banks. The airline had only five planes airborne when the decision came.The lenders were unable to decide on the amount they should release to the stricken airline, whose fleet of 120 aircraft had dwindled to five in a matter of months. While the management’s demand was at least Rs 1,500 crore, which the lenders, who are looking for buyers for up to 75 per cent stake in the company that Naresh Goyal founded, initially accepted. Later reports said the lenders were considering releasing Rs 1,000 crore as some lenders belonging to the State Bank of India (SBI)-led consortium were sceptical of the bids. The lenders finally released only Rs 200 crore, which was not enough to keep flying the airline that owes lenders and other stakeholders Rs 8,500 crore.There were reports that some of the lenders wanted to apply the squeeze on the emergency funds to hasten the bidding process after four bidders were chosen. Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, the foreign strategic partner of Jet who holds the 24 per cent stake in Jet that they bought in 2012, is the only airline in the fray. Another bidder Indigo Partner is a US-based private equity firm with controlling stakes in US-based American Frontier Airlines and Chilean low-cost startup JetSmart. The state-owned National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) and US private equity fund TPG Capital that specialises in leveraged buyouts, has little exposure to the aviation sector.

Courtesy: etihad.comThe bidders may have wanted the airline to remain airborne when they board it as part of the lenders’ rescue plan, but now that the airline is grounded they may not be in a hurry to see the planes back in the sky, according to observers. This is because the grounded airline has increased the bidders’ bargaining power against the creditors to the stricken airline, which Naresh Goyal founded in 1992 as India’s first private airline.”The investors are ready to provide funds. However, the lenders have made it overly challenging for any bid to work in the time frame required,” said a person close to the development who was quoted in a report in the Economic Times. “The lack of interim funding has forced Jet to shut operations. The lenders see this as an opportunity to expedite the sale process. But this does not allow time for adequate due diligence,” he added. Jet has net debt of about Rs 8,500 crore on its books and dues to lessors and vendors add up to about Rs 3,500 crore. The potential investors are prepared to take on only 20 per cent of the airline’s debt.An estimate says Jet will require up to Rs 20,000 crore over the next three years even with the many austerity steps the investors plan to implement. This includes funding towards estimated losses, dues and investments in improving the operations, according to the report.last_img read more

DACA UPDATE Congressman Calls Trumps Chief Of Staff A Liar

President Donald Trump plans to end a program that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought into the country illegally as children and call for Congress to find a legislative solution.The Latest on President Donald Trump’s decision to phase out a program that shields from deportation young immigrants brought to the country illegally (all times local):President Donald Trump says he has a “great love” for the young immigrants protected by the DACA program.Speaking before a meeting with administration officials and congressional leaders Tuesday, Trump says he has a “great heart” for the young people. He says he hopes “Congress will be able to help them and do it properly.”The Trump administration announced Tuesday it’s phasing out the program and leaving it to Congress to come up with an alternative. The program has provided nearly 800,000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation.Trump says he has spoken with members of Congress who “want to be able to do something and do it right.” He adds that he thinks “long-term, it’s going to be the right solution.”__A Republican senator is urging President Donald Trump to get personally involved in advancing legislation that would put a select group of young immigrants on a path to U.S. citizenship.Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says Trump should “work the phones” to get the votes needed to pass the bill Graham is sponsoring with Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat.Their legislation would allow young immigrants who grew up in the U.S. to earn lawful permanent residence and eventually American citizenship if they meet several requirements. They have to have come to the United States as children, graduate from high school and pass background checks.Graham says the bill “is a good down payment on what will eventually be a comprehensive solution to a broken immigration system.”__A Democratic congressman is calling White House Chief of Staff John Kelly a liar after President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind the government program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children.Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois lashed out at Kelly, the former head of the Homeland Security Department, on Tuesday. The lawmaker says Kelly has “no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the president’s actions by ‘just following orders.’”Gutierrez says Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that the mass deportation of so-called “Dreamers” would be prevented. The lawmaker says Kelly, a former Marine, is a “disgrace to the uniform he used to wear.”Former President Barack Obama calls President Donald Trump’s decision to phase out the so-called DACA program “cruel” and “self-defeating.”The program has provided nearly 800,000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation. The Trump administration announced Tuesday it’s rescinding the program and leaving it to Congress to come up with an alternative.Obama did not mention Trump by name in his statement but says a “shadow has been cast” over some of the nation’s best and brightest young people. He says targeting them is wrong “because they have done nothing wrong.”Obama says it’s up to members of Congress to act and he joins his voice with the majority of Americans who hopes Congress will step up. The White House says it wants Congress to come up with a plan to replace the program the Trump administration is phasing out, which shields young immigrants from deportation.White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says President Donald Trump wants to see “responsible immigration reform” from Congress. She says it should also include controlling the U.S. border, improved vetting and enforcing immigration laws.The administration is giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the government stops renewing permits for people covered by the program.___1:45 p.m.Mexico says it “deeply regrets” the Trump administration’s decision to phase out a program that shields young immigrants from deportation, and the Mexican government is urging U.S. lawmakers to pass a replacement.The Foreign Relations department says in a statement that “it is undoubtedly the sole responsibility of U.S. citizens and institutions to determine U.S. immigration policy … but in the current situation, the Mexican government has a moral imperative to act.”The department said Tuesday that Mexico would provide legal defense services for any of its citizens affected by the decision. The department said of the young immigrants, dubbed “Dreamers,” that Mexico “will receive with open arms any dreamers who return.”___12:30 p.m.President Donald Trump is defending his decision to phase out a program protecting young immigrants from deportation, saying he is giving Congress a “window of opportunity” to act.Trump is stressing in a statement that he is “not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act.”The program created by former President Barack Obama has given nearly 800,000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country.Trump says he is not in favor of punishing children for the actions of their parents.But he says: “Young Americans have dreams too.”___11:45 a.m.House Speaker Paul Ryan says Barack Obama’s existing policy for immigrants brought to the country as children was a “clear abuse of executive authority” and now it’s incumbent upon Congress to act.In a statement Tuesday, the Wisconsin Republican says the heart of the issue is “young people who came to this country through no fault of their own.”Ryan says it is his hope that the House and Senate — with the president’s leadership — will find consensus on a permanent legislative solution to the issue. He says it is important to ensure that those who have done nothing wrong can still contribute “as a valued party of this great country.”Ryan’s statement came after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he was rescinding the program known as DACA.___11:45 a.m.House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is calling President Donald Trump’s decision to end the program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children “a deeply shameful act of political cowardice.”Pelosi also said in a statement that the widely expected announcement on Tuesday was a “despicable assault on innocent young people in communities across America.”The California lawmaker said the decision requires immediate action from the Republican-led Congress, and Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP leadership must hold a vote immediately to address the issue.___11:15 a.m.The Trump administration has announced that it will wind down a program protecting young immigrants from deportation.Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday called the program known as DACA as an “unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch.”He says the Trump administration is urging Congress to find an alternate way to protect young immigrants brought into the country illegally as children.Sessions says the U.S. needs to have a lawful immigration that “serves the national interest” and the U.S. cannot admit everyone who wants to come to the country.___10:26 a.m.President Donald Trump will phase out a program that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought into the country illegally as children. He will call for Congress to find a legislative solution to protect the immigrants, who are often called “Dreamers.”That’s according to two people who were briefed on the plan set to be announced later Tuesday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the plans publicly before the announcement.Trump suggested in an earlier tweet Tuesday that it would be up to Congress to ultimately decide the fate of those covered by President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program.DACA has provided nearly 800,000 young immigrants a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the U.S.— By Jill Colvin.__8:25 a.m.President Donald Trump says Congress should “get ready” to take on immigration legislation.Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to announce Tuesday it will end in six months a program that shields from deportation young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.The decision to delay the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, would give Congress time to act. But Congress has struggled to act on immigration because of divisions within the Republican party.Trump tweeted early Tuesday: “Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!”__3:38 a.m.Potential battles may lie ahead for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in the wake of his decision on whether to keep the program that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.Some Republicans want to maintain the program while others want it ended. Waiting for the president’s decision are those who came to the U.S. illegally as children and in some cases have no memories of their native countries.Trump is expected to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but with a six-month delay. Congress could use that extra time to pass legislation that would address the status of the so-called Dreamers.The Justice Department says Attorney General Jeff Sessions will address the DACA program at a Tuesday morning briefing.last_img read more

Texas Coastal Bend Residents Continue To Rebuild After Hurricane Harvey

first_imgDAVID MARTIN DAVIES / TEXAS PUBLIC RADIOWeeks after Hurricane Harvey hit Fulton damage and debris line the streets.Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast on Aug. 25 and became the state’s most costly storm on record, causing almost $200 billion in damage. Houston bore the brunt of it and has received the most attention. But many frustrated residents of Aransas County say more help is needed.The sound of power saws and drills permeates the streets of Fulton — a town of 1,300 located about a half hour northeast of Corpus Christi. Some are calling this the DIY recovery because residents aren’t waiting around for aid. They’re picking up their tools and getting to work, including the mayor, Jimmy Kendrick.“I’m trying to build a fence back,” he said, while gesturing towards a half-completed project. Lumber, tools and other equipment are scattered around the yard.Kendrick said Hurricane Harvey gave his home a wallop and not many in Fulton were spared.“The eye hit right where you’re standing right here,” he said. “This is where the eye came aboard.”There’s a new raised concrete slab where the garage used to be. But a structure will be coming soon, Kendrick said.He said his roof leaks and only the front of the house has electricity.“I live in this half of the house right here where the living room is with my wife because that’s where the air conditioner’s at,” he said.For Kendrick, taking the rebuilding into his own hands isn’t just necessary — he said it’s therapeutic.“What you hear right now is people trying to get out of that depression stage – that down stage and get into something positive,” he said. “Once you are using your hands, (you’re) building something, (you’re) seeing something improve, then you are making it better for yourself.”Recently, Kendrick and other coastal bend officials testified at a hearing before state lawmakers.“Our community is hurting. It’s hurting bad,” he told lawmakers.He said to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Disaster Impact and Recovery that the stress of dealing with Harvey’s destruction is getting to be too much for him and the town.“Folks, I didn’t sleep last night from one o’clock to three o’clock. There are times that I sat there and thought about sticking a gun in my mouth and pulling the trigger, folks,” he said.The mayor of nearby Port Aransas, Charles Bujan, was there too. He told lawmakers that Port A city facilities alone suffered at least $47 million in damage.“Our fire equipment and fire department suffered major damage. Our public works building was completely destroyed with most of the vehicles. Our (emergency medical service), and police and constable and court — municipal court building is totally destroyed. Our library is destroyed and all of the books in it. Our marina is not usable and completely 80 percent destroyed. Our 12,000 acre nature preserve was heavily damaged with all the walkways gone,” he said.Bujan said to deal with future super storms, the city will raise all its public buildings by 15 feet. He also expects the city council to require all new construction be raised. And to protect the city, it needs a seawall on the bay side of the island.“Our city needs help. We’ve suffered many storms but nothing like Hurricane Harvey. This storm has dealt us a deadly blow. As mayor I’m reaching out to you on this panel and this state government for assistance,” he said.Kendrick said he asked his community what it needs most.“Every one of them said ‘Pay my bills. Help me pay my bills.’ ” Let’s start giving money to people,” Kendrick said.There’s no indication the state plans to give money directly to Hurricane Harvey victims, but one organization is.On Saturday, the Taiwan-based humanitarian organization Tzu Chi Foundation set up rows of tables and chairs in Fulton’s fire department station, where residents received free debit cards.CREDIT DAVID MARTIN DAVIES / TEXAS PUBLIC RADIOThe Taiwan-based humanitarian organization Tzu Chi Foundation gave out gift cards to aid Fulton residents.“It can not be used to buy tobacco or alcohol,” said Chi Yao, a spokesperson for Tzu Chi. He said the amounts on the cards vary depending on the family size and the need. The foundation is also providing emergency relief to victims of Mexico City’s Earthquake, Hurricane Irma and the California wildfires.“We don’t ask for anything in return.”But Chi said his group, which is rooted in Buddhism, wants to spread the word of love, stewardship of the planet and vegetarianism.Rockport Police Commander Jerry Lawing said the arrival of the Tzu Chi Foundation was a welcomed surprise and its help means many people in Aransas County will be able to have a traditional Thanksgiving.“We didn’t know anything about these people and now we got to be real close friends,” he said.Lawing added whether the people of the Coastal bend feast on real turkey or tofu turkey, they will now have plenty to be thankful for on Thanksgiving thanks to those who are helping their community recover.David Martin Davies can be reached at or on Twitter @DavidMartinDavi Sharelast_img read more

Houston Scientist James Allison Wins Nobel Prize

first_img Share MD Anderson Cancer CenterDr. James P. Allison in his laboratoryThe Nobel Prize in medicine was awarded Monday to two researchers from the United States and Japan for advances in discovering how the body’s immune system can fight off the scourge of cancer.The $1 million prize will be shared by James Allison, Ph.D., chair of Immunology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Tasuku Honjo, M.D., Ph.D., a professor at Kyoto University.Watch the moment the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is announced. Presented by Thomas Perlmann, Secretary-General of the Nobel Committee.— The Nobel Prize (@NobelPrize) October 1, 2018Allison is the first MD Anderson scientist to receive the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, according to MD Anderson. Allison and Honjo’s parallel work concerned proteins that act as brakes on the body’s immune system and it constitutes “a landmark in our fight against cancer,” said a statement from the Nobel Assembly of Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, which selects winners of the annual prestigious award.Allison studied a known protein and developed the concept into a new treatment approach, whereas Honjo discovered a new protein that also operated as a brake on immune cells.2018 #NobelPrize laureate James P. Allison studied a protein that functions as a brake on the immune system. He realised the potential of releasing the brake and unleashing our immune cells to attack tumours. He developed this concept into a new approach for treating patients.— The Nobel Prize (@NobelPrize) October 1, 2018“I’m honored and humbled to receive this prestigious recognition,” Allison said in a statement. “A driving motivation for scientists is simply to push the frontiers of knowledge. I didn’t set out to study cancer, but to understand the biology of T cells, these incredible cells that travel our bodies and work to protect us.”Last year’s prize went to three Americans for work in identifying genes and proteins that work in the body’s biological clock, which affects functions such as sleep patterns, blood pressure and eating habits.The physics prize is to be announced Tuesday, followed by chemistry. The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be named Friday and the economics laureate will be announced next Monday. No literature prize is being given this year.For more on Allison and Honjo’s discoveries and background, click here. last_img read more

Mark Zuckerberg on Why Facebook Wont Remove Fake News and 3 Other

first_img 5 min read July 18, 2018 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goalscenter_img “We’re not kids in a dorm room anymore, right?”That’s what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Kara Swisher, co-founder of Recode, in a recent podcast interview. The full transcript is available here, but we pulled out some of the key takeaways — including the company’s plans for regulating “fake news,” its new AI tools for monitoring content, Zuckerberg’s own mentor and what he sees as the new frontier for technology.1. Facebook will not remove “fake news” — it will simply reduce that content’s distribution.Zuckerberg said he grapples with the balance between giving people a voice and keeping the community safe. “In this case, we feel like our responsibility is to prevent hoaxes from going viral and being widely distributed,” he said.When it comes to false news, Zuckerberg’s approach is to make sure that the top items going viral or being distributed by Facebook on a large scale aren’t hoaxes or blatant misinformation. If users flag content as a potential hoax, it’s sent to a team of fact-checkers, and if they say it’s provably false, Facebook will reduce that content’s distribution and move it down in News Feed.But the company won’t remove content from the platform — even if it’s provably false — unless it attacks individuals or will likely result in physical harm. “I’m Jewish, and there’s a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened,” Zuckerberg said. “I find that deeply offensive. But at the end of the day, I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong. I don’t think that they’re intentionally getting it wrong.” Moving forward, organizations posting provably false content on their own pages will only be checked by a reduction in distribution via News Feed.2. The company will prioritize monitoring fake accounts, advertisements and Facebook Live broadcasts.Zuckerberg said the company is prioritizing monitoring on a large scale. Facebook’s content review team now numbers 20,000 people, he said, and the company is pouring resources into artificial intelligence (AI) tools that identify and remove fake accounts, as well as tools that flag and remove terrorist content.Another thing Zuckerberg touched on: With the launch of Facebook Live, some individuals began to use it to broadcast self-harm or — “in a few cases” — suicide. He said the company built more AI tools and hired a team of 3,000 so they could up response time to Live videos within 10 minutes. (The company’s typical response time for content ranges from hours to one day.)“In the last six months, we’ve been able to help first responders get to more than a thousand people who needed help quickly because of that effort,” he said.Related: The Biggest Revelations and Strangest Moments From Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional Testimony3. Zuckerberg named Bill Gates as his mentor.Zuckerberg called Microsoft founder Bill Gates one of his chief mentors and inspirations — even before he knew him personally. “Growing up, I admired how Microsoft was mission-focused,” he said. “It was a company that had a clear social goal. … It was like an Apollo-like goal to me.”Zuckerberg says he admires Gates’s “second act” with charitable giving, saying he hopes to follow in the philanthropist’s footsteps by making it a priority right now.As for others he admires? Zuckerberg emphasized the team he works with on a daily basis — specifically that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg taught him much of what he knows about leadership, business and building organizations. “I always tell people that you should only hire people to be on your team if you would work for them,” he said.4. Virtual and augmented reality is the new frontier, according to Zuckerberg.Every 10 to 15 years, Zuckerberg said he sees a new computing platform emerge that’s better at capturing the human experience. That’s why he thinks virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) will soon be a “really big deal.” He brought up the history of the internet, saying it started as primarily text, moved to emphasize images, then prioritized video — and he says he believes VR and AR are likely next.“I do think that we’re gonna move towards this world where eventually you’ll be able to capture a whole experience that you’re in and be able to send that to someone,” he said. “I think that that’s just going to be an amazing technology for perspective — taking and putting yourself in other people’s shoes [or] being able to feel like you’re really physically there with someone even when you’re not.”Related: Here’s What Mark Zuckerberg’s Testimony Could Mean for the Future of Facebook Register Now »last_img read more

Cornerback Justin Bethel tries to run past Jumal R

first_imgCornerback Justin Bethel tries to run past Jumal Rolle during an OTA practice May 16. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Top Stories Justin Bethel knows his 2016 season was not a good one, save for the last couple of weeks.After struggling to make much of an impact most of the year, he collected 11 tackles along with one interception — which he returned 66 yards for a touchdown — over the final two games, both of which were Cardinals wins.At that point, the broken foot that required surgery and plenty of rehab and time had started to feel good. 0 Comments   Share   Your browser does not support the audio element. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact If Bethel rebounds and has a productive 2016, he will be hitting the free agent market at just 27 years of age.“Betting on yourself,” is how he described his situation.It is a gamble for a player who has three career interceptions, but might be one worth making.Bethel had originally signed the three-year extension worth a reported $15 million in December 2015 as the team viewed him as an ace special teams performer and emerging cornerback.But the foot injury that hampered him toward the end of that season and in the playoffs required surgery and led to him missing most of the 2016 offseason. Then, by the time he finally got back on the field, he struggled to the point where late in the campaign head coach Bruce Arians called his growth as a cornerback a “failure in progress,” in part because he was battling the injury.Bethel said he appreciated his coach’s perspective because, as he said, Arians understood his situation and was not holding it all against him.“We’re on good terms and I don’t hold anything against him,” Bethel added.Bethel’s perspective heading into this crucial season is a good one, as he seems comfortable with his contract status as well as his foot. Now entering his sixth season, there is no shortage of confidence that the only thing that has held him back is an injury he is now finally past. LISTEN: Justin Bethel, Cardinals cornerback The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires While he expects to make his mark on defense, Bethel said he is still likely to contribute on special teams, where he has made three Pro Bowls due to his prowess. He can change games there, and he understands why the coaches would not want him to give up that part of his game.The balancing act comes in him needing to play well on defense in order to maximize his value in what is now a contract year, but Bethel said the key will be managing his greater role.“It’s a little bit of doing what I need to do to take care of myself, but also, usually if the team is very successful, a lot of individual success comes along with that,” he said. – / 20 “I knew I wasn’t healthy enough to play corner full-time; it was like, at least let me get healthy enough so I can at least help on special teams and do something,” Bethel told Bickley and Marotta on 98.7 FM, Arizona’s Sports Station Thursday. “As the season went on I got healthier and healthier, and by the end of the season I was able to really practice and really be able to go out there and play.“It was evident on the field and obviously I’m trying to take that and keep moving forward with it.”Bethel said being able to finish strong and end the season on a high note felt good, and it allowed him to feel confident heading into the offseason.That confidence is in part why he agreed to take a paycut in exchange for his contract coming to an end following the 2017 season.“I think it was just one of those things where it was a situation where the team thought, because of how the season ended and because of where they wanted me to be in the future, it was something that they wanted to throw out there,” he said. “We just ended up making it beneficial for both sides.“I don’t have any ill-will; you’ve got to play to earn your money in this league and I already know what I can do and I plan on going out there and proving what I can do so where taking a paycut isn’t that big of a deal to where I end up making it back.”last_img read more

the real issue is not numbers it is how to maintain the quality of the workforce" The report notes however that "the historical record of forecasting the number of scientists and engineers needed to work in national security has been abysmal at best" so problems could appear suddenly The report suggests that DOD focus on meeting its own special workforce needs rather than trying to improve the overall quality of STEM education in the United States "DOD needs to concentrate on solving its own problem not the country’s problem" Mote says DOD now employs just about 2% of the total US STEM workforce the report notes and is "a small and diminishing part of the nation’s overall science and engineering enterprise One consequence is that DOD cannot significantly impact the nation’s overall STEM workforce-and therefore with a few exceptions DOD should focus its limited resources on fulfilling its own special requirements for STEM talent" Some practical steps that the Pentagon can take to recruit and retain top talent include adjusting compensation levels and streamlining hiring and security clearance practices in order to make DOD "fully competitive" with more nimble industry and academic employers And it could also "ring fence" employees and positions that it considers particularly important protecting them from budget cuts layoffs and hiring freezes A more ambitious recommendation is for the Pentagon to sponsor "unconventional" research and engineering projects that offer "exciting challenging and highly attractive opportunities" to potential workers The problem Mote says is that as the Pentagon buys fewer large weapons systems DOD workers have fewer opportunities to hone their technical and leadership skills solving big complicated problems But a series of smaller challenging projects—perhaps modeled after prize competitions for developing "disruptive" technologies or Lockheed Martin’s famed "Skunk Works" facility that pioneered futuristic spy planes and supersonic aircraft—could help build esprit de corps he says "We felt very strongly about the unconventional programs idea" Mote says "It’s been shown over and over again that the idea of working on a challenging project is a very attractive recruiting tool" Mote said the panel spent "a lot of time" discussing its recommendation that DOD try to hire more non-US citizens for STEM jobs Currently the Pentagon limits most STEM positions to US citizens in large part as a result of security clearance requirements But that restriction means DOD can’t directly tap a rising tide of foreign talent including those who could like to become US citizens To break the logjam the panel says DOD should "reexamine the need for security clearances in selected positions in order to permit non-US citizens to enter the STEM talent pool … under tailored circumstances" The US Department of Energy it notes already has programs that give foreign scientists jobs and clearances if they commit to obtaining US citizenship; DOD could start with similar efforts The panel also called for expanding the number of visas available for highly skilled technical workers "to provide the nation and the DOD with a substantially larger pool of extraordinary talent in areas of need" Mote concedes that the foreign hiring recommendation may be difficult to implement "There is a feeling that this is a very steep hill to climb" he says A host of laws and regulations would need to be changed he says steps that are "out of the hands of DOD" Pentagon officials are still reviewing the report a Pentagon spokesperson wrote to ScienceInsider in an e-mail And Mote says it is unclear "whether the department as a whole will want to take this on in a big way" as it struggles with impending budget cuts and other issues "These are some rather big changes we are talking about" he says "But it’s clear that DOD needs to be more assertive and prepared to compete for its STEM workforce" A sit-in at Duke University entered its fourth day on Monday as students occupied an administrative building to call for three school officials to resign and for Duke to offer a $15 minimum wage for campus workers The nine students who started the sit-in were largely protesting Tallman Trask III Duke’s executive vice president over a 2014 incident in which Trask was accused of hitting a parking attendant with his vehicle and calling her a racial slur as he drove away according to a lawsuit filed earlier this year Trask has denied using a slur against Shelvia Underwood the parking attendant but has admitted he unintentionally hit her with his car On Monday he issued an official apology “While the details of what happened are a matter of disagreement and subject of civil litigation I recognize that my conduct fell short of the civility and respectful conduct each member of this community owes to every other” Trask said in a statement “I express my apology to Ms Underwood and to this community and re-commit myself to ensuring that these values are upheld for all” The protesters occupied the second-floor lobby of the school’s Allen Building which houses administrative offices on Friday afternoon On Sunday Duke issued a statement saying the administration would close the building to the public on Monday The school has been in discussion with the protesters and will not discipline them the statement said On Monday Duke administrators said they would not continue negotiating with students until they leave the building “Closing the Allen Building while these negotiations go on has presented a significant disruption to students faculty staff and visitors and cannot continue indefinitely” the school said in a statement “The university is committed to completing these negotiations and reaching a mutually agreeable resolution in a peaceful and productive way” Write to Maya Rhodan at mayarhodan@timecomS” and of course including the Russian minority Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Union Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Babul Supriyo lambasted the state government saying and go run a mile to dinner Nobel Laureate and author of Thinking had recently criticised the state unit Congress president Ashok Chavan had earlier clarified that he was not going to leave the Congress and had blamed his "detractors" in the party for spreading such rumour who were licensed as foster parents Its about sometimes being willing to make hard choices that might not directly benefit the company in the short term” Owoyomi said when the crisis started.
