Travel warning issued for Playa del Carmen in wake of ferry explosion

first_imgThe Canadian government has issued a safety and security warning for travellers visiting Playa del Carmen in Mexico.The advisory notes that the United States issued an alert on Wednesday warning American citizens that information had been received about a security threat in the coastal resort town.U.S. government employees are currently not allowed to travel to the area until further notice.The warning comes in the wake of an explosion last month on a tourist ferry in Playa del Carmen, which injured more than 20 people.Another explosive device was found on a ferry last week, but did not detonate.The Canadian notice, which comes as many are preparing for spring break vacations, warns travellers “to exercise a high degree of caution in Playa del Carmen” and avoid taking tourist ferries.last_img read more

Suncor Energy says driverless trucks will eliminate a net 400 positions

first_imgCALGARY – About 400 jobs are expected to disappear at Suncor Energy Inc.’s oilsands mines in northern Alberta as it deploys driverless ore-hauling trucks to replace the ones humans operate now.“We have about 500 roles that will get eliminated through this and we’re going to add about 100. So the net change in our workforce is about 400 positions,” chief operating officer Mark Little said in an interview Wednesday.The company has been testing the 400-tonne capacity Komatsu trucks for about four years and has nine now. It announced Tuesday it will gradually build a fleet of more than 150 driverless trucks over the next six years, starting with the North Steepbank mine at its Base Camp north of Fort McMurray.Suncor is the first oilsands mining operation to adopt the technology.Tokyo-based Komatsu Ltd. this week celebrated the 10th anniversary of deployment of its first autonomous truck at a Codelco copper mine in Chile, noting that more than 100 trucks now operate at four Rio Tinto Ltd. iron ore mines in Australia, the mine in Chile and at Suncor.On Tuesday, Melbourne-based Rio Tinto announced its autonomous haul trucks had achieved the milestone of having moved a total of one billion tonnes of material without being involved in any injury accidents. In December, it announced it would expand its fleet of about 80 trucks to 140 by the end of 2019.Suncor’s plan to test the autonomous truck systems was initially criticized by the Unifor union local because of job losses. But Little says Suncor is working with the union to minimize job impacts by retraining workers whose jobs will disappear.The company has been preparing for the switch by hiring its truck drivers, including those at its just-opened Fort Hills mine, on a temporary basis, he added. Suncor said the earliest there will be a decrease in heavy equipment operator positions at Base Plant operations is 2019.Little said the company will replace trucks that have reached the end of their useful life with new Komatsu trucks. He said they cost about $5 million each, not including the obstacle detection systems and computer gear needed for autonomy.Some of Suncor’s newer existing trucks will be retrofitted, he added.He said the autonomous trucks are so efficient — because they operate 24 hours a day and stop only for fuel — the company will need fewer trucks in the future than it employs now.Komatsu says tires on its autonomous trucks last 40 per cent longer because the trucks avoid sudden acceleration and abrupt steering.Rio Tinto’s trucks are controlled remotely from its operations centre in Perth, about 1,500 kilometres from the mines, but Little said Suncor is initially going to operate the trucks from control rooms at each mine site.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:SU)last_img read more

Ottawa denies claims from Quebec it will modify Temporary Foreign Worker Program

Ottawa denies claims from Quebec it will modify Temporary Foreign Worker Program QUEBEC – The federal government quickly closed the door on Monday to claims from Quebec it was open to modifying the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to address the province’s concerns.Quebec Labour Minister Sam Hamad said Monday his federal counterpart agreed to talks aimed at easing frustration from some businesses that the program was excessively burdensome.The program has been a source of tension between Quebec and Ottawa since the federal government changed the rules in 2014 to make it harder to hire foreign workers after reports businesses were abusing the system.Hamad said federal Employment Minister Pierre Poilievre was “very open” to changing the rules.He added Quebec’s immigration minister is to meet Tuesday with Poilievre to “discuss and to understand … to take into account the particularities of Quebec.”But Poilievre, who was also in Quebec City on Monday, denied the federal government had any intention of changing the program.He said 140 000 people benefited from employment insurance in Quebec in 2013 and businesses need to hire local workers before they look to recruit foreigners.“Quebecers are totally in agreement with our approach,” Poilievre said. “Employers are looking for 8,000 temporary foreign workers. I say: ‘Hire Quebecers first.’”Ottawa tightened access to temporary foreign workers in 2014 after news reports revealed businesses across the country were replacing local workers with foreigners and paying them less.The new rules force companies to prove they tried to look for local workers before seeking permission to hire foreign nationals.The changes also forbid businesses in certain industries from hiring temporary foreign workers if they operate in regions with an unemployment rate under six per cent.Quebec says the changes penalize certain regions in the province and make it excessively complicated for businesses with worker shortages to hire talent. by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 6, 2015 2:54 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 6, 2015 at 4:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Man spies on husband and wife using flying drone transmits images to

first_imgIn the world of normal people, it’s not okay to breach anyone’s privacy using any sort of means, except for the utmost extreme cases, such as for military use. In the world of certain crazy people, though, spying on unsuspecting folks is as normal as normal can be. In the world of uniquely crazy people, sometimes spying on people involves complicated unmanned air vehicles loudly buzzing outside of a third-story window, hovering over a populated road in plain sight. A Seattle man was caught involved in such an act, spying on someone else’s family.A woman inside an apartment building that the drone was seemingly spying on noticed the aircraft thanks to a loud noise it emits while operating, reportedly similar to that of a weed whacker. The drone had a camera equipped, so the woman’s husband asked the man to stop using the drone in such a way, but the drone operator claimed that he was performing research and declined to cease. The operator also claimed that the drone’s camera was sending images down into his glasses, which certainly didn’t make matters any better for the couple who was worried he was using the drone to spy. It is unclear if the man was using Google Glass.The main claimed that he was allowed to operate the drone in such a way because it was operating in the air, which is something of a legal grey area. Back in 1946, the Supreme Court ruled that the “air is a public highway,” which means that, for example, a plane can fly over your house and not be considered trespassing, whereas if someone drives into your backyard, that’s considered trespassing.While the man most likely has the right to fly a drone in the air over someone’s yard, what he was photographing certainly changes the legality of the situation. It’s unclear what the man was photographing. If he simply took some pictures of the street or some neighboring trees, that’s most likely fine, albeit an annoyance for anyone trying to have a peaceful afternoon without the sound of weed whackers flying through the air. If the man was capturing images through the windows of people’s homes, that’s another story entirely.The couple called the police, but the man left before they could show up, so there’s no way of knowing what the man was spying on. However, due to the proximity of the drone — only a few feet away from the third-story window — the couple was quite worried that he could either be a burglar casing the joint before a robbery, or a technologically advanced peeping tom.Image credit: Betabeat, Don McCulloughlast_img read more

Game on

first_imgIn the first polling to be announced since Kevin Rudd’s return as PM, a Morgan poll shows Labor trailing the Coalition by just one point – 49.5 to 50.5 in two-party terms. Mr Rudd faced off with Opposition leader Tony Abbott for the first time on Thursday during Prime Minister’s question time, just hours after being sworn in by Governor-General Quentin Bryce. Mr Rudd’s performance out of the blocks was warmly received from his backbench, many of who feel they now have a fighting chance of retaining their seat at the election; a forlorn hope just days ago. The collective sigh of relief in federal Labor ranks could almost be heard from Canberra. Maria Vamvakinou MP, a staunch supporter of Mr Rudd during the divisive leadership challenges told Neos Kosmos: “These things are always difficult, but it’s the right decision in terms of going into the election. “It’s about better articulating our policy to the electorate and focusing attention on the absence of policy from the Opposition. “It’s now going to be a robust contest between two or three sets of ideas about the future, not about distractions.” Despite her allegiance to Mr Rudd, the Labor member for Calwell said that she empathised with Julia Gillard. “I’ve know her for many years and she achieved something incredible in being Australia’s first female Prime Minister,” said Ms Vamvakinou. “A large number of the public never really moved on from what happened in 2010, it was always there in the background.” Ms Vamvakinou, talking in an upbeat mood after question time on Thursday, said that Labor MPs were confident a robust challenge could now be made by the party at the election, which is likely to take place in August. “I can tell you one thing about politics, nothing is impossible, nothing can ever be ruled out,” she said. “I want to achieve a victory at the election for the Labor Party and for it to form a government in its own right.” Asked if her loyalty to Mr Rudd might offer the chance of elevation to cabinet, Ms Vamvakinou said: “I’ve no idea what the Prime Minister’s view is on his front bench. I’ve not been made any promises, and I’ve never asked for promises to be made.” Steve Georganas MP described Mr Rudd’s return as PM as a “game changer”. “There’s now a competition on,” he said. “Julia was a great Prime Minister in terms of getting legislation through, ensuring we had a stable parliament, but for whatever reason this didn’t reflect in the public’s view.” Asked what Julia Gillard’s legacy would be, Mr Georganas, who had backed Australia’s first female PM in previous leadership counts but who switched his vote to Mr Rudd on Wednesday, said: “Julia has a great track record. Look at the National Insurance Disability Scheme, the education reforms, and the 960,000 jobs that have been created since we’ve been in government. These are all big reforms made in difficult times because of the hung parliament.” The Labor member for Hindmarsh added that the decision to oust Gillard was made partly as a result of the damage inflicted on the leader of a minority government. “This is the nature of a hung parliament, from day one we had an Opposition in Tony Abbott who did all he could to tear parliament down, and he failed. “The reality is that whatever happened is now in the past and we move on, and do everything we can to keep Abbott out of the Lodge because we know the future for Australia will be far worse under an Abbott government.” At state level, two former ministers gave their verdict on this week’s dramatic events. Kon Vatskalis MP, former Labor minister in the NT government, said that he welcomed Kevin Rudd’s return, not least because of Rudd’s support for and knowledge of Hellenic issues. “Rudd has been a supporter of Greece and Greek Australians on issues like Cyprus and others; he’s someone who’ll stand by his mates. He is a good communicator and it’s time to unite. The threat is not each other any more, the threat is Abbott and what he would do for Australia.” In Victoria, John Pandazopoulos MP, a former state minister for employment and tourism said: “Rudd has more resonance in the community that will give Labor a competitive chance. “The risks of Abbott are too high and Rudd will focus on traditional Labor values of a fair go, jobs and quality services.” Meanwhile the federal Opposition has poured cold water on Labor’s new found confidence. “The return of Kevin Rudd highlights how dysfunctional Federal Labor is,” Senator Arthur Sinodinos told Neos Kosmos. “Recycling a Prime Minister, based on polling and self-preservation is not good for democracy or running the country. “In 2007 Kevin Rudd proclaimed himself an economic conservative, but he overreached in responding to the financial global crisis, [he] failed to manage the economy in his first term,” said the Shadow Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Opposition. “Nothing has changed with Federal Labor, except the faces. Under Rudd the economy will not be strengthened, the books will not be balanced and productivity will continue to decline. The Rudd Government is still the same old Labor.” After a chapter of bloodletting that ranks as high as any chapter in Australian political history, one of the first requests Prime Minister Rudd conveyed was for MPs of all political persuasions to be a “little kinder and gentler with each other”. We shall see if it’s a call that’s heeded. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Justice Department indicts Chinese hackers allegedly behind Anthem breach

first_img Share your voice Post a comment Security Politics The FBI released a wanted poster of the two alleged hackers behind Anthem’s breach. Federal Bureau of Investigation The Justice Department has charged two Chinese hackers accused of stealing millions of records from one of the largest health insurance companies in the US.On Thursday, the US government announced charges against Fujie Wang and another hacker with three different aliases (Deniel Jack, Kim Young and Zhou Zhihong), accusing the two Chinese nationals of hacking Anthem in 2015. “The allegations in the indictment unsealed today outline the activities of a brazen China-based computer hacking group that committed one of the worst data breaches in history,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski said in a statement.The hack affected up to 78.8 million people using Anthem, and included sensitive data like names, Social Security numbers, phone numbers, email addresses, income and birthdates, according to court documents. In 2017, Anthem settled a class action lawsuit, agreeing to pay $115 million to the affected victims.”We are grateful for the support and partnership of the FBI and extended law enforcement team in investigating the sophisticated cyber-attack that Anthem was a victim of in February 2015, and are pleased with the action taken today,” an Anthem spokeswoman said in a statement.According to the indictment, the two are also allegedly behind attacks on three other US companies, including a large tech company and a communication services company.They were able to access these networks and steal millions of records through spear-phishing emails, prosecutors said in the indictment. Once victims at Anthem and the other three companies clicked on the link, it’d download a file and deploy malware, granting the attackers remote access, the Justice Department said.After the hack, Anthem revealed that the stolen data it stored wasn’t encrypted, but it’s likely that security measures wouldn’t have protected the sensitive records. Originally published May 9, 1:17 p.m. PT.Updates, 1:24 p.m.: Adds remarks from the Justice Department; 2:05 p.m.: Includes response from Anthem.center_img Tags 0last_img read more

Back To Basics

first_imgAfter over-the-top dramas and slick urban stories, Hindi cinema is drawing inspiration from small-town India.Hindi cinema is fast evolving even as the industry grapples with keeping its finger on the pulse of changing audience tastes. Despite this uncertainty, one thing’s certain – larger-than-life dramas that inspired flights of fantasy in the audience are passe. Hindi movies are no longer aspirational, at least, not in the traditional sense of the term. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSo, out with dream sequences in foreign locations and uber-cool settings as shown in films like Student Of The Year, Jab We Met, 2 States, 3 Idiots, OK Jaanu and many others. It seems Dangal, which released in December 2016, was a turning point. The film seems to have struck a desi chord and set off a trend where stories that are grounded and simple in terms of their setting are capturing the audience’s hearts. Take a look at the success stories that released this year and their performance at the ticket counter. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe year 2017 started with two superstars, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan, coming out with decently successful films like Raees and Kaabil. Both films were not only set against the most basic backdrops but also presented heroes that the audience could easily relate to. These two movies were followed by films like Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Tubelight, Hindi Medium, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and several others. Interestingly, while almost every filmmaker is trying to elbow their way to the `100-crore club, the top four films in the `300-crore club – Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan and Aamir Khan’s PK and Dangal, featured somewhat rustic concepts.The recent line-up of films makes one wonder whether there is a deliberate shift towards cinema that connects with the Indian audience at a basic level. Or is it pure coincidence that we have a slew of ‘grounded scripts’ making their way to the silver screen in quick succession?To shed some light on this, we spoke to experts from the industry. Here’s what they had to say:AANAND L RAI, PRODUCER-DIRECTOR I have never deliberately placed a film in a rural setting; it has happened naturally. I have made no attempt to ‘Indianise’ a storyline to make it more appealing. It is the world in which the story is set that attracts me. Whenever one forces something, it is bound to backfire. This year, people have been connecting with ethnic storylines and things have been flowing in that direction naturally. But we have to be careful not to push too much in that direction.BHUSHAN KUMAR, PRODUCERMany of our current films have been shot at beautiful locations in our country. The location of a story in our Hindi films usually turns out to be a character in the film. So, if you want your film to look convincing, it is important to shoot within the country. It helps the audience connect with the film easily.JAYANTILAL GADA, PRODUCER This is not the first time films are being shot in India; we shoot overseas only when we are offered tax benefits. It majorly depends on the script of the film. Last year, we had a lot of films that were shot in India but if the story requires the film to have a foreign country as its backdrop, we go for it. Nowadays, audiences are accepting good scripts. It is more about ‘film following’ than ‘fan following’. People are looking for content. Films like Baahubali have proved that people will watch a film only if it has strong content. No one knew who Prabhas was in other parts of the country before this film released. Recently, Hindi Medium and Bareilly Ki Barfi have made a mark.SUBHASH GHAI, DIRECTOR I have written and directed 19 movies, of which only four movies were shot abroad. Pardes, Taal, Yaadien and Yuvraaj were films where locations were the part of the stories. I prefer to shoot in India as we tell stories of Indian people. Also, we know these people who are connected with their roots. The fascination for foreign locations is just a personal fascination; it is no longer a fascination with the audience, with social media growing.NITESH TIWARI, DIRECTOR For me, it is always the story and the characters that should dictate the location and not vice versa. If the story doesn’t really demand a particular location, then there is merit in setting it up in a location that allows the characters to flourish and the story to be told more interestingly. In that case, small – or mid-town India is getting chosen more often now because it has a distinct and charming appeal that people haven’t experienced much. NIKKHIL ADVANI, DIRECTOR / PRODUCER I think as filmmakers we still do not know what will work but a lot of us have finally begun looking for inspiration from within India. I don’t think it’s only about desi versus foreign, even in Baazaar, we are making a film about India, about Mumbai and power, money, rules that are always broken. Once again, as filmmakers, we chose to take inspiration from real life incidents that have rocked the financial markets.ANUBHAV SINHA, DIRECTOR / PRODUCER That’s the real India. What connects with the audience is a good story. It’s true that more films are being shot within India. There’s a bunch of new filmmakers who are setting their films in India. People are identifying with those stories more and more because those films are about our problems, our celebrations. So they are more rooted in our society and that is why they are connecting with people better. I have only shot Thathastu in India. Most of my movies have been shot abroad. And I am shooting in India next month. The reason is that I got a little tired of stories that were set abroad. So it happened organically. BOIlast_img

Alfred Duma Local Municipality has reported that earlier this month, the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria dismissed AfriForum and AfriBusiness’ urgent interdict to stop Eskom from cutting electricity to municipalities that had outstanding bills, arguing that it was unconstitutional and would affect ordinary citizens and businesses alike.The municipality confirmed there would be no power cuts in Ladysmith because of bad debt.“The recent High Court ruling has a huge impact on society. Let us all unite and be a responsible collective in paying for all services rendered by government and its parastatals, particularly Eskom for it to continue supplying electricity to our municipality and community,” said the municipality.However, the municipality raised issues surrounding electricity theft and meter tampering where an electricity user bypasses the municipal/ Eskom’s meter to avoid paying for the electricity they use.last_img read more

Breeza, by Beekley Corp., was developed in response to industry requests for a beverage to deliver oral iodinated contrast that patients would find more palatable, enabling them to drink the entire volume within the allotted time.“Breeza has provided a contrast delivery product that almost every patient has tolerated well and not gagged getting down. This provides for a much more complete study and our patients appreciate having something that tastes good,” said CT scan technologist Joseph Piadade of Halifax Regional Hospital in South Boston, Va. “Patients are able to drink according to our instructions and the colon is well contrasted during the scan. We have noticed a marked decrease in intolerance and patients have no problem drinking the required amount for the study being performed.”Breeza is sugar-free and tropical-fruit-flavored, and is sold premixed and packaged in 16 oz under-filled bottles, to allow for addition of the oral iodinated contrast. Using Breeza is also meant to save time, since facilities will not have to mix powdered drinks, coax patients to drink, employ nasogastric tubes or need to rescan.

The manufacturer’s quality control (QC) program benefits the facility that wants to provide the best possible quality in any hard copy mammography images it prints. Although the FDA’s Mammography Quality Standards Act and Program (MQSA) inspection program has removed printer QC questions from its inspection procedures, if a facility decides to maintain a printer, medical physicists must continue to include that printer QC in the mammography equipment evaluation upon installation, after a major repair, and annually, if required by the printer’s or image receptor’s manufacture quality control program.For more information: www.fda.gov/Radiation-EmittingProducts/MammographyQualityStandardsActand… News | Mammography Reporting Software | July 26, 2019 Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured… read more Technology | Mammography Reporting Software | July 25, 2019 Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution Hologic announced a partnership with mammography information solutions provider MagView to develop Unifi EQUIP, an… read more News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more Qlarity Imaging’s software is used to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast lesions.

As the technology has evolved, so has the role various peripheral devices played. The utilization of film printers by facilities was prevalent, especially when digital mammography first entered the market. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported in November the need for mammography printers in the digital age has significantly dropped.Some of the needs the printers served in the past were the provision of hard copy comparison images from digital facilities to requesting facilities that were not capable of viewing digital images, the submission of images for accreditation, and providing copies of mammograms to be viewed in the operating room. However, in the digital age, the FDA said the need for hardcopies has been significantly reduced. Digital mammography was introduced into clinical use 15 years ago, and today fewer than 350 screen-film units remain in use in the United States. The nearly universal availability of computers for viewing of digital images diminishes the need for a facility to maintain a printer, the FDA said. Another change in current practice was the introduction of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in 2011 and its rapid clinical adoption. DBT images are intended solely for soft-copy interpretation.Today, with many mammograms shared on computer media such as compact discs or via online access, the provision of printed hard copies is becoming obsolete, the FDA said. Many medical facilities have the ability to review images on monitors throughout their facilities. Please note that any exchange of images between requesting and image-providing facilities is to be accomplished in a mutually agreed-upon format since there is no regulation dictating format. Additionally, all FDA-approved accreditation bodies can accept images electronically needed for accreditation, additional mammography reviews, etc.Therefore, in today’s world, the option to maintain a printer and/or the ability to print hard-copy images is a decision left to each individual facility, according to the FDA.  read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Related Content Feature | Breast Imaging | November 24, 2015 | Dave Fornell FDA Offers Guidance on Printers for Mammography In the digital age, there is little need for printers for hard copies of mammograms Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more last_img read more

Global stocks lower after Greece delays IMF payments

first_img LONDON (AP) — Greece’s decision to bundle together its upcoming repayments to the International Monetary Fund roiled financial markets Friday as investors fretted over the possibility of a Greek debt default and the country’s exit from the euro. U.S. jobs figures later will provide investors with a distraction from the mounting uncertainty over Greece’s financial future.KEEPING SCORE: In Europe, Greek shares led the way lower with the benchmark Athens index down 5 percent. Elsewhere, France’s CAC 40 slid 1.5 percent to 4,912 while Germany’s DAX fell 1.4 percent to 11,180. Britain’s FTSE 100 fell 0.9 percent to 6,793. U.S. stocks were poised for a lower opening with Dow futures and the broader S&P 500 futures down 0.5 percent. GREEK TURMOIL: The decision Thursday by the Greek government to bundle together its four payments totaling 1.6 billion euros ($1.8 billion) due to the International Monetary Fund this month into one on June 30 raised fears across markets that the country’s financial position is even worse thought, threatening its place in the euro. It’s the first time a developed economy has taken the option of bundling payments together — an emergency maneuver that’s allowed by the IMF but taken up last by Zambia in the 1980s. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is scheduled to address an emergency session of parliament Friday as discontent rises within his party.ANALYST TAKE: “Last night’s sudden change of mind has raised the stakes even further as this high stakes game of Jenga goes on between Greece and its creditors,” said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets. “One false move from one side or the other, and the whole fragile edifice could well come tumbling down.”AMERICAN JOBS: Though clearly focusing on the developments surrounding Greece, investors have key U.S. data to digest before Wall Street opens for business. May’s nonfarm payrolls data could well set the market tone for a while as investors assess when the Federal Reserve will start raising interest rates. Economists predict that employers added 227,500 jobs in May and the unemployment rate will hold steady at 5.4 percent. “Having seen the previous three sets of figures being revised lower, and the slightly cooler economic data releases the U.S. has had, expectations could be forgiven for dropping a little,” said Alastair McCaig, market analyst at IG.

Ahead of the figures, the euro was flat at $1.1225 while the dollar rose 0.2 percent 124.79 yen.ASIA’S DAY: Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 fell 0.1 percent to close at 20,460.90 and South Korea’s Kospi fell 0.2 percent to 2,068.10. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng dropped 1.1 percent to 27,260.16 and Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 slipped 0.1 percent to 5,498.50. Southeast Asian benchmarks were also mostly lower but the Shanghai Composite Index in mainland China gained 1.5 percent to 5,023.10.ENERGY: As traders awaited the latest decision to OPEC, benchmark U.S. crude rose 50 cents to $58.50 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. OPEC is expected to keep its production unchanged at 30 million barrels a day. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oil used by many U.S. refineries, rose 50 cents, too, to $62.532 in London.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians left a

first_imgArizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians, left, and general manager Steve Keim discuss the upcoming NFL football draft, Tuesday, April 19, 2016, in Tempe, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York) 0 Comments   Share   It also means a long wait on draft night.The Cardinals must sit and watch 28 other teams turn their pick in and then listen to Commissioner Roger Goodell announce the selection.“When you’re picking so late it’s so hard to forecast what happens the 28 picks prior,” Keim said. “The thing I will tell you is we will be prepared.”That includes, according to Keim, possibly moving up or back, the latter of which may leave the Cardinals without a first-round pick on April 28.Currently, the Cardinals have six picks in the 2016 NFL Draft with one each in the first, third, fourth and sixth rounds and two in the fifth round, including No. 170 that the team received as a compensatory selection.Remember, the Cardinals do not have a second-round or seventh-round pick. Those were traded to New England and Philadelphia for linebacker Chandler Jones and quarterback Matt Barkley, respectively.The lack of a second-round selection (61st overall) is just fine by Arians.“Just write Chandler Jones’ name on a tag. You’ll be happy as hell,” he said, laughing.Keim has been known to covet picks — he’s been involved in at least one draft-day trade each of the three years since he’s been GM — but this year he may go against the norm. TEMPE, Ariz. — It’s the one downside to a successful NFL season: a late first-round draft pick.Not that the Arizona Cardinals are complaining or would prefer the alternative; quite the opposite, really.Both general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians like the view from where they stand, drafting in the lower-third of the opening round for the second straight year.It means they’re coming off a good season, and at 13-3, the Cardinals enjoyed their best regular season in franchise history. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “In four years together, we feel like we’ve gotten significantly better as a roster,” Keim said, referring to Arians, “so acquiring more picks gives you the obvious, which is to hit on more players, yet at the same time because of our roster and the depth that we currently have, it’s harder to make our football team.”In other words, Keim may be less inclined to part with either their first- or third-round (92nd overall) selection in favor of being busier on the draft’s third day, even though the Cardinals have had great success recently in the later rounds, i.e. Andre Ellington and Justin Bethel, who were each sixth-round picks.While meeting with the media on Tuesday, Keim said they had completed their top-120 board, which ranks draft-eligible players taking into account their talent, medical history and character, both on and off the field.Keim said they expect to draft an impact player at No. 29 again, should they keep the pick.As far as which direction they may go, Keim provided no hints, though he liked the defensive line depth and Arians pointed to a handful of quarterbacks with great potential.Of course, no names were spoken.The Cardinals also have needs — center and cornerback are considered the most pressing — and should be addressed accordingly in the draft. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “When you have a roster to the point that where we feel pretty good about it, like we that could play tomorrow,” Keim said, “it makes it a lot easier to be honest with the system where you don’t feel like you have to reach for a need.”Added Arians, “Take the talented player. You will miss on the needs. The needs will get you broke and fired.”It’s been seven years since the Cardinals drafted this late in the first round, and this year marks the fifth time in the last eight years that the Cardinals’ first-round pick is 20th or later.“Quite frankly, there’s talent throughout the whole draft,” Keim said. “It’s just making sure we get it right.”last_img read more
