Nick Saban An ‘Obvious’ Fit For One NFL Team, Colin Cowherd Says

first_imgNick Saban stares on the sideline.TUSCALOOSA, AL – SEPTEMBER 08: Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks on during the game against the Arkansas State Red Wolves at Bryant-Denny Stadium on September 8, 2018 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Nick Saban has built college football’s greatest modern dynasty, and continues to add to his resume as perhaps the greatest coach in the sport. That doesn’t stop him from being the subject of NFL rumors every off-season, though.The chance to coach Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers is going to be an attractive one for a number of candidates. Saban has been mentioned for that job, though it is unclear if there are any real legs there.FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd doesn’t like that fit, but he does think Saban would do well with one NFL team.Colin Cowherd thinks that if Nick Saban is to move up to the NFL, the “obvious” match is to coach Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns.He raised the possibility in the Wednesday edition of his FS1 and FOX Sports Radio show The Herd.Nick Saban would be a lousy fit in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers…”The one [fit in the NFL] that’s so obvious to me is the Cleveland Browns and Baker Mayfield.” — @ColinCowherd— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) December 19, 2018Cowherd makes a number of interesting, if not convincing, points, including Saban’s penchant for roster construction matched with the Browns’ cap space and draft picks, his familiarity with Mayfield and the former SEC stars on the roster, the Browns’ Southern ownership, and his own experience with the franchise and in the Midwest.If Saban does go to the NFL, maybe Cleveland would make more sense than other options. The Browns do have a lot going for them, battling against the pervasive poor reputation of the franchise.Still, it would be shocking to see Saban make a move to the pros, whether it is for the Browns, Packers, or any team. He has a very good thing going in Tuscaloosa.last_img read more

Moreover, with two of the most-celebrated India cricketers, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli, leading the sides, there’s a lot of interest surrounding the South Indian derby of the cash-rich league.Moments after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the schedule for the first 17 matches of IPL 2019, social media banter between the CSK and RCB resumed over a much-talked-about issue Sambar.”A spicy south Indian Derby for starters – but we prefer the sweet sambar…,” RCB wrote on Twitter, referring to their first match of the season away from home. CSK’s social media handle, known for its quirky tweets, was at it again when it said: “But sambar is always #Yellove in colour no?”For starters, Sambar, a lentil-based vegetable stew, served in Bengaluru and Chennai differ in taste with the one served in Karnataka generally sweeter in taste.But sambar is always #Yellove in colour no? Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) February 19, 2019Notably, only one IPL match was held in Chennai last year as games over moved out of the capital city of Tamil Nadu after protests erupted over the long-standing Cauvery river water issue. Nonetheless, CSK went on to lift the trophy after finishing second in the league stages, beating RCB twice en route.advertisementChennai will be hosting two matches in the first two weeks. Rajasthan Royals will visit the city on Sunday, March 31.The IPL governing body has announced the schedule only for the first two weeks, keeping in mind the impending announcement of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

USD 100 million).Apart from the one unit PSV and two units AHTS which were sold to a repeat customer, the rest of the vessels were sold to new customers. Clinching of these new contracts has further strengthened the Group’s already sizeable order book, which provides greater earnings visibility for the Group.All of these vessels are expected to be delivered in 2013 and 2014. Consequently, the revenue stream from these vessels is expected to contribute positively to the top and bottom line performance of the Group for the financial years ending 31 December 2013 and 31 December 2014. As of to date, Coastal Group has approximately RM1.28 billion worth of vessel sales orders awaiting delivery to customers up to 2014.Mr Ng Chin Heng, the Executive Chairman of Coastal, commented: “I am pleased to announce that Coastal Group has secured another major win of vessel sales orders with an aggregate value of approximately RM318 million.Following our order book intakes in April, July and August this year, this is our fourth major win in FY2013. As of to date, the cumulative vessel sales orders secured in FY2013 alone amounted to approximately RM1.35 billion, which is approximately two times of the Group’s total vessel sales orders secured in FY2012 which amounted RM698 million. This is a strong indicator for the Group’s rebound momentum, which is benefiting from the currently booming oil and gas sector. Our order inflow looks favourable. Including these new contract wins, Coastal Group’s vessel sales orders as at to date stands at approximately RM1.28 billion.With current highly buoyant offshore market, we believe the Group would be able to capitalise more opportunities moving forward. Anchored on the buoyant oil and gas upstream sector globally with increasing offshore exploration and production activities, we are upbeat with the prospect of OSV market over the medium to long term, especially for more sophisticated and deepwater-capable OSV.”Mr Ng further added: “Finally, we are pleased to have the opportunity to enter business relationships with our new customers.

Open Farm Day Set for Sept 25

first_imgNova Scotians will have an opportunity to enjoy a day in the country and learn about life on the farm during the fourth annual Open Farm Day on Sunday, Sept. 25. “Farms play such an important role in providing us with the foods and products we use every day, yet many of us don’t have the opportunity to really learn first-hand how they work,” said Chris d’Entremont, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries. “Open Farm Day gives us all a chance to better appreciate the impact agriculture has on our everyday lives.” Nova Scotia farms generate more than $420 million in varied products each year. The province’s major farm sectors are dairy, horticulture, poultry and eggs, and livestock. There are about 2,700 registered farms in Nova Scotia. In 2004, there were more than 8,000 visits to 46 farms across Nova Scotia as part of Open Farm Day. This year 46 farms will participate in the event, which is being hosted by the Department of Agriculture, through its Nova Scotia Agricultural Awareness Committee. A map and list of all the farms participating in this year’s Open Farm Day is available at Sobeys, Price Chopper and Foodland stores.

Maple syrup lost after remote operation burns to ground in Cape Breton

first_imgBOISDALE, N.S. – A maple syrup operation in Cape Breton has burned to the ground, destroying much of the family-run business’s product for the year.Highland Gold Maple Products, which has produced maple syrup from about 8,000 trees in the Boisdale Hills for more than 15 years, said on its Facebook page that the operation was levelled by the fire Wednesday.“We are very sad to inform our customers that our operation was destroyed by fire this week,” the owners said. “No one was hurt. We wish to thank you all for your support and patronage over the years. We have some very limited product left and will contact customers over the coming days.”Joe MacDonald of the Boisdale volunteer department said Friday that they were called to the operation at about 5 p.m. Wednesday.He said the building is in a remote area with a road that was covered in deep snow, preventing them from easily accessing the site.MacDonald, who didn’t go the site, said firefighters trudging through the snow were met by the company owner who told them the building was already extensively damaged, along with much of this year’s maple syrup.“It was obviously gone before they got there,” MacDonald said. “There was nothing left.”He said the community usually has a pancake breakfast every May 1, with the syrup being provided by the company. He said they will likely have to cancel that.“It’s really devastating,” he said. “We feel it here because they are friends.”The company owners were not available for comment.last_img read more

Over the rest of the week, traders will take in reports from resource giants including Talisman Energy, Cenovus Energy, gas giant EnCana Corp. and Barrick Gold.“I think what we will see in terms of energy companies, more specifically oil and gas, is going to be a function of continued persistent multi-year weak gas prices which will hold back those with gas production,” said Garey Aitken, chief investment officer at Bissett Investment Management.“The earnings season has been pretty decent from our vantage point. I’m just hopeful that what’s going on at the corporate level will shine through and play centre stage.”Outside of the resource sector, Sun Life Financial, and telecoms Telus Corp. and Rogers Communications will also hand in results.In other corporate news, engineering firm Genivar confirmed that it engaged in “inappropriate conduct” several years ago in the financing of political parties in Quebec and the awarding of municipal contracts as outlined in recent allegations to the province’s corruption inquiry.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy combines classic RPG and rhythm genres

first_imgSquare Enix unveiled Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, a mash-up of the music rhythm and RPG genres, for the 3DS in this week’s issue of Japanese magazine Shonen Jump. The game is, as translated by Japanese industry watcher Siliconera, a “theater rhythm action game” where players explore towns and dungeons and fight battles, but the battles are tests of musical rhythm instead of the usual combinations of attacks, items and armor.Being a 3DS release, the game naturally uses the stylus to allow players to tap or hold notes on the touch screen. The look and feel is also different, as evidenced by the screenshot on the right side of the magazine scan above. Final Fantasy heroes and monsters alike have a decidedly cartoony appearance and calls to mind the softer look of Nintendo’s Paper Mario series.AdChoices广告No release date was indicated in Shonen Jump, but there is hope for a North American release after an American trademark for the title appeared a few weeks ago.Read more at SiliconeraBlake’s OpinionWhy release this for the 3DS?The game will surely retail for around $40 in a Japanese market that never outright fell in love with the rhythm genre the way the American market did during the heyday of Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Maybe this one is for the fans of the more obscure rhythm games to come out of the Japanese market such as PaRappa the Rapper.For me, however, the question is much more about “Why not for the iPhone?” than “Why 3DS?” Between the approachable, cute characters (check out the cute version of Cloud in the screenshot above), the touchscreen interface, and the simpler rhythm gameplay, Theatrhythm feels like a natural pick for iOS devices, where selling at a much lower price point could yield much more revenue.Still, Square Enix could have a variety of reasons for choosing to release on the 3DS. Maybe the bean counters decided the 3DS platform needed the Final Fantasy brand name. Or perhaps this game, smaller in scope, could be a 3DS development exercise in preparation for something more epic, like the next Dragon Quest.I, for one, will wait with bated breath for the iOS port.last_img read more


Les dépenses informatiques mondiales en hausse de 7 en 2011

Le cabinet d’études Gartner a en effet publié ses prévisions et table sur une hausse de 7,1%, qui porterait les dépenses à quelque 3.672 milliards de dollars. Une croissance encouragée par une forte demande pour les nouveaux réseaux télécoms et le matériel informatique.À lire aussiLes scientifiques appellent à l’utilisation globale des données pour comprendre la planètePrenant en compte un possible impact du séisme qui a dévasté le nord-est du Japon en mars dernier, le cabinet avait au second trimestre misé sur une croissance de 5,6% en 2011 par rapport à 2010. “C’est un peu surprenant que nous n’ayons pas un impact plus significatif sur nos dépenses globales du séisme et du tsunami japonais. Mais malgré les inquiétudes initiales concernant une possible rupture de la chaîne d’approvisionnement, ce n’est pas le cas”, souligne l’analyste Richard Gordon dans le communiqué de Gartner.Le cabinet indique en outre que les dépenses dans les services informatiques dématérialisés (cloud computing), devraient augmenter “quatre fois plus vite” en 2011 que le secteur dans sa globalité.

Clark Countys fallen soldiers remembered

first_imgA few elderly men gingerly rose from folding chairs when Bob Knight, president of Clark College and a featured speaker at Monday’s ceremony at the Clark County War Memorial, called upon veterans of World War II to stand.A few more men stood up as veterans of the Korean War; Vietnam War veterans numbered even more. Then a handful of Gulf War veterans were met with applause.Knight, former commander of Vancouver Barracks, surveyed the crowd of several hundred at the barracks and said he wished more people were there to honor the veterans. He knows some people view Memorial Day as simply a day off from work or school, a day to check out sales at the mall, gather with friends for barbecues and watch sports on TV.Maybe the threat of rain kept people away, he said.But soldiers “fought in much worse weather than this,” Knight said.“For those of us who are here today, this is the least we could do for them,” he said.The war memorial features nearly 600 names of soldiers with a Clark County connection — those either born here or who were legal residents at their time of death, although exceptions have been made — who have died in combat since the Spanish American War. Twelve of the names are listed under “Global War on Terrorism.”Knight read off each of those 12 names, followed by a “thank you.”The last name he read was Pfc. Christopher Ian Walz.Vancouver Councilman Larry Smith told the crowd Walz was killed Oct. 27 in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb. Smith said Walz was killed with six other soldiers, his “band of brothers.” Their unit, 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 2nd Infantry Division, based at Fort Lewis, is due to rotate home in the next few months.last_img read more

Liz picked some of her produce this morning,” Goforth said, nodding toward the booth where Liz Pike was selling vegetables as well as other items from her Shangri-La Farm.“And,” Goforth added, “it tastes delicious.”Pike also was putting on a cooking demonstration, sizzling up thick slices of french toast.“These are our farm-fresh eggs,” said Pike, who described herself as a foodie.The bread came from the adjoining booth, where Mary Hargrave’s offerings included an orange- and cranberry-studded variety of challah from Vancouver’s Julia Bakery.But french toast isn’t their only collaboration. Pike and Hargrave also are part of the team that’s helped the Washougal Farmers Market stay in business.last_img read more

Turkey updates visa process with online preapplication system

first_imgIn line with the procedure observed by Schengan countries and to make it transparent, Turkey has updated its visa application process for various sub categories. For this reason, the Turkish Ministry of External Affairs has come up with ‘pre-application system for Turkish Sticker Visa’ system which will require applicants to fill basic details and agree to the terms and agreements online. “Travel agents may enter the details, but the application form needs to be signed by the applicant. Applicants will upload their biometric photograph, income proof, flight reservation, hotel bookings and other supporting documents online, which after uploading successfully will be given a confirmation and a physical application form to be printed and signed by the applicant,” the Consulate General of The Republic of Turkey said.One can seek an appointment online and a travel agent/applicant can visit the Consulate and submit all documents with the passport and make payment. Applicants will have the option to submit their photograph online. However, the online pre-application system is different from the e-visa system.Addtionally, Turkey has witnessed a growth in tourist arrivals from the Indian market. In 2013, the country welcomed 95,000 nationals from India, and in 2015, the figure touched 140,000. “We expect a lot of diplomatic traffic between two countries this year.

We are hopeful of policy changes and Turkey being offered Visa on Arrival by India,” said Erdal Sabri Ergen, Consul General, Turkish Consulate General in Mumbai.last_img read more
