Van with 140m of meth smashes into police car

first_imgSydney: Australian authorities have uncovered a USD140 million stash of amphetamines after an alleged criminal’s run-in with the law saw his drug-filled van crash into an officer’s car outside a police station. Security camera footage released on Tuesday showed a white van ploughing into the front of a vehicle parked outside a suburban Sydney police station before speeding off down the street. Police said the alleged 26-year-old driver was pulled over about an hour later, less than a 10-minute drive away from the accident scene.

Australia has a growing problem with meth, with a government report released last year showing the country has proportionally more users than most nations. The van driver has been charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving, and not giving particulars to police. He was due to appear in a Sydney court later on Tuesday. No one was injured in the incident.last_img read more

Security Council debates legal options for pursuing pirates off Somali coast

25 August 2010Commending the efforts undertaken so far to combat piracy off the coast of Somalia, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today stressed that more can be done, as the Security Council debated legal options to help bring the perpetrators of such crimes to justice. Commending the efforts undertaken so far to combat piracy off the coast of Somalia, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today stressed that more can be done, as the Security Council debated legal options to help bring the perpetrators of such crimes to justice. “Over the past three years, the international community has made concerted efforts to combat the problem, including by establishing a Contact Group and deploying significant naval assets to the region,” he told the Security Council as it met to discuss the issue. “Nonetheless, we can do more,” he added. “In particular, we need to implement the existing legal regime, so the fight against piracy in international waters is effective. In a report released last week, Mr. Ban identified seven options for furthering the aim of prosecuting and imprisoning persons responsible for acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea, which has been a growing problem in recent years.In the past seven months there have been 139 piracy-related incidents off the coast of Somalia, he noted. Thirty ships have been hijacked, and 17 ships and 450 seafarers are being held for ransom.The first option presented in the report is to enhance ongoing efforts to assist regional States to prosecute and imprison those responsible for acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea.The second would involve locating a Somali court, applying Somali law, in a third State in the region. The third and fourth options would involve assisting a regional State or States to establish special chambers, embedded in the State’s national court structure, to conduct piracy trials. Option five would require active engagement by the States of the region and the African Union to establish a regional tribunal to address the scourge of piracy.Option six would be an international tribunal – analogous to existing “hybrid” tribunals – with national participation by a State in the region.Option seven would be a full international tribunal, established by the Security Council acting under Chapter VII of the Charter.Mr. Ban emphasized that achieving substantive results in combating piracy – whether through a new or existing judicial mechanism – will require political and financial commitment from Member States.“We will need both to establish the mechanism and ensure that it has the capacity and resources to prosecute a large number of suspects, while ensuring due process,” he stated. “Furthermore, in considering the establishment of such a mechanism, a host State will need to be identified.“This, in turn, will require adequate arrangements for transferring those convicted to third States for their imprisonment. This is particularly relevant given the large number of suspects apprehended at sea.” To further explore these issues, the Secretary-General announced that he intends to appoint a Special Adviser on Legal Issues Related to Piracy off the Coast of Somalia.UN Legal Counsel Patricia O’Brien noted a number of challenges associated with achieving and sustaining substantive results in the fight against piracy off the Somali coast. These include the large number of suspects, the fact that any judicial mechanism would be addressing a symptom of the situation in Somalia, not its causes, and the lack of any defined completion date for the mechanism’s work.“It is for these reasons that sufficient political and financial commitment by States would be necessary, not only to establish a new mechanism, but also to sustain it.” The Council welcomed the report containing the possible options, and deemed it vital to find long-term solutions to the problem of prosecuting suspected, and imprisoning convicted, pirates.“The Security Council strongly believes that persons responsible for acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, including those who incite or intentionally facilitate such acts, should be brought to justice,” the 15-member body said in a presidential statement adopted at today’s meeting. Speakers at the meeting also stressed that effectively tackling piracy and armed robbery off the coast of Somalia will require a sustained response, not only at sea, but also on land where piracy originates. Therefore, it is vital to support efforts to achieve peace and stability in Somalia, which continues to be plagued by fighting between Government forces and rebel groups, and remains the scene of one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world with 3.2 million people – more than 40 per cent of the population – in need of aid. read more

UN officials urge collective action to save Central African Republic from current

“The crisis that continues to unfold in the Central African Republic poses a test for the entire international community,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his remarks to the Security Council, as he outlined a set of measures to address the greatest risks facing the country. “The situation in the country has been on the agenda of the Security Council for many years now. But today’s emergency is of another, more disturbing magnitude. It is a calamity with a strong claim on the conscience of humankind,” said the United Nations chief. He noted that over the past year, CAR has witnessed, in quick succession, the violent overthrow of the Government, the collapse of State institutions and a descent into lawlessness and sectarian brutality. The crisis has already claimed thousands of lives, uprooted almost one million people and left more than 2.5 million people in need of immediate humanitarian assistance.The conflict erupted when mainly Muslim Séléka rebels launched attacks in December 2012 and has taken on increasingly sectarian overtones as mainly Christian militias known as anti-Balaka (anti-machete) have taken up arms. With whole populations being moved, Mr. Ban said “a creeping de facto partition of the country” is setting in, with Muslims in one part and Christians in another. “This separation is laying the seeds of conflict and instability for years, maybe generations, to come.”The UN’s Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Valerie Amos, who wrapped up a visit to CAR today, said she was “shocked” by burned homes and people so scared by violence that they sleep in the bush at night. She noted that tensions between communities are high, and stressed the need for more troops on the ground to provide security and protection across the country.Echoing the call for security and protection was Michel Sidibé, the Executive Director of the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), who also witnessed the desperate conditions facing the people of CAR as he travelled with Ms. Amos. Prior to the current crisis, the country was already struggling with its AIDS response. Since the violence began, two-thirds of people living with HIV on treatment have fled their homes and are no longer able to access the medicines and care they need. The African Union and France have deployed troops to CAR to help stem the violence, and Mr. Ban voiced his gratitude to them for saving many lives and providing protection where they can. “However, given the scale and geographic breadth of the violence, the security requirements far exceed the capabilities of the number of international troops now deployed,” he stated. “In places where there are no international forces, the choice for far too many civilians is to flee or be killed.“The human family must not shy away from what is happening today in the Central African Republic, or from our responsibilities – both yours and mine – under the United Nations Charter,” he stressed. “Events in the CAR have implications across the region, and summon us to defend universal values as well. This complex security, humanitarian, human rights and political crisis demands a comprehensive and integrated response.”The Secretary-General is expected to report soon to the Security Council on the outlines of a future UN peacekeeping operation with a robust mandate to protect civilians and promote stability in CAR. However, he noted, the deployment of a peacekeeping operation, if authorized, will take months. “The people of the Central African Republic do not have months to wait. The international community must act decisively now to prevent any further worsening of the situation and to respond to the dire needs of the country’s people.”Therefore, he proposed a six-point initiative to address the greatest risks being faced by the people of CAR, beginning with a call for the rapid reinforcement of the AU and French troops now on the ground with additional deployments of at least 3,000 more troops and police.He also proposed that all international forces in CAR be brought under a single coordinated command, and that the mission of these forces be focused on the most urgent priorities. These include containing the violence, protecting civilians, preventing further displacements, and creating a secure environment for the delivery of humanitarian assistance. In addition, the African troops that join this force should be provided with logistic and financial support.Further, Mr. Ban called for rapid, tangible support to the Government of CAR, led by Acting Head of State Catherine Samba-Panza, to help it establish a minimum capacity to function. “This support should include the financial assistance necessary to get police back on the streets, judges back in the courtrooms, and prison guards back on the job,” he stated. In addition, he called for the acceleration of a political and reconciliation process to prevent a “further fraying of the communal bonds,” as well as for urgent funding for humanitarian aid, which is currently insufficient to address the crisis.“We know what is happening in the Central African Republic. We know why it is different from previous outbreaks of violence. We know why it matters to all of us and what we must do,” said Mr. Ban.“Knowledge is not all we have. Through collective action, as envisaged by the United Nations Charter, we have the power to stop the killing and save the Central African Republic from its current nightmare.” read more

The Music Business Sucks—So Does the Magazine Business

first_imgThe music business sucks. At least that’s what everyone tells me. You hear the same thing about the magazine business. “That’s a tough business,” people say.Is there such a thing as an “easy” business? Being a pro athlete might seem easy, but try throwing a 20-yard pass with a 300-pound lineman ready to separate you from your shoes. No thanks, I was never good with pain. If I get a paper cut I call in sick.So if I detest pain, why am in the music magazine business? (My company, Zenbu Media, publishes Relix, Metal Edge, Metal Maniacs and Global Rhythm.) It would seem to be a double whammy. Fortunately, it’s not. Music is not going away and neither is the printed page. Picture yourself on the beach trying cuddling up to a great article or novel on your PC. It doesn’t feel the same. It’s kind of like a Stepford wife. Sure the PC is a fantastic way to connect, socialize, learn and listen but it lacks one thing. Tangibility. People flock to concerts and music festivals in record numbers to see the artists, feel the vibe and experience something real. Tangible. It is easier (and cheaper) to sit at home and watch the Rolling Stones on YouTube, but you miss the energy, the camaraderie and the feeling of true artistry. Music has never been more accessible (legally or not). Myspace and other social networks have made it easier for garage bands to be heard. Hundreds of thousands of them. From all over the world. How do you choose what to listen to? How do you cut through the crap and find the gem? Ask the people who live for music. Those who are out every night and are never without pods in their ears.Fortunately they write about it, too.last_img read more

New Mormon policy no longer calls samesex marriage apostasy

New Mormon policy no longer calls samesex marriage apostasy

first_img Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email By: Bob Smietana @bobsmietana Bob Smietana @bobsmietana Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS)  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Thursday (April 4) that church members in same-sex marriages will no longer be considered apostates. The policy change also clears the way for children of LGBT members to be baptized.“Previously, our Handbook characterized same-gender marriage by a member as apostasy,” the church said in a statement posted on its online newsroom. “While we still consider such a marriage to be a serious transgression, it will not be treated as apostasy for purposes of Church discipline. Instead, the immoral conduct in heterosexual or homosexual relationships will be treated in the same way.”LGBT parents can request that their children be blessed under the new policy. Their children can also be baptized “if the custodial parents give permission for the baptism and understand both the doctrine that a baptized child will be taught and the covenants he or she will be expected to make.”Church leaders said the new policy does not change the church’s position on marriage. Same-sex marriage will still be considered a “transgression.”Still, they hope the changes will be seen as an act of goodwill.“We want to reduce the hate and contention so common today,” the statement read. “We are optimistic that a majority of people — whatever their beliefs and orientations — long for better understanding and less contentious communications.”In 2015, the LDS church announced that children of LGBT parents could not be blessed or baptized. Church President Russell M. Nelson reaffirmed the policy in 2016, calling it a “revelation from God,” according to The Salt Lake Tribune.The new policy will be sent to Mormon leaders around the world and will be included in an update to the church handbook. The church’s statement also referenced comments made by President Henry B. Eyring at a General Conference Leadership Session.Eyring spoke about the church’s belief in continuing revelation, according to the release.“One reason is that we need the Lord’s direction to meet changing circumstances, and He has guided changes in practice and policy throughout the history of the Church,” the statement said.

HPD West Houston Shooter Discharged Rifle More Than 200 Times

John McGalin said the first call came in at 10:15 Sunday morning.“Our officers were dispatched at 10:17. They arrived five minutes later. At 11:10, the threat was eliminated,” he said.He said a police sniper shot and killed Garza from a residence more than 100 yards away after the shooter killed one man and wounded three bystanders, two officers and an armed resident, John Wilson, who tried to confront him.Police previously identified that man as a second suspect.Acting Chief Martha Montalvo said in active shooter situations, residents are urged to shelter in place.“What (Wilson) did was very brave, but officers are trained in these active shooter situations, and obviously he wasn’t able to engage,” she said. “He was outgunned and probably outmaneuvered and, as far as his tactical training, wasn’t at the same speed as our suspect. Just call the police and let us do what we have to do, and not put yourself in a situation where you become a victim.”Florian MartinHPD homicide Lt. John McGalin says Dionisio Garza fired 212 rounds from an AR-15 assault weapon, injuring six. He killed one man with a pistol.McGalin said Garza fired 212 rounds from an AR-15 military-style rifle, including at passing vehicles, patrol cars and even a police helicopter.And he had more ammo in a backpack.Montalvo said police destroyed the bag because they weren’t sure if it posed a threat.“We, in essence, blew it up. It should have been collected. It was not,” she said. “There was an assumption made by two different units that the other was going to take care of that. Obviously, that will not occur again.”She said HPD is still interviewing witnesses and processing evidence.Apparently, Garza suffered from depression, but McGalin said they have not determined a motive, and there seems to be no connection between the shooter and his victims or the location he chose.last_img read more

Analysis Adding A Citizenship Question To The Census Could Screw Over Texas

Analysis Adding A Citizenship Question To The Census Could Screw Over Texas

first_imgBy Andrew WhalleyCounting is one thing. Culling is something else entirely.As the federal government prepares for its once-every-decade count of the U.S. population, it has decided to ask residents whether they are U.S. citizens or not. At a time when immigration and sanctuary cities top Republican lists of political concerns, that question has less to do with counting and more to do with culling.Including that question could be a strong disincentive for some respondents to even talk to a census worker, if they feel that answering in the negative — “Not a U.S. citizen” — might expose them to legal consequences. Being counted is one thing. Volunteering for immigration scrutiny is another. It’s not an academic exercise, either — or someone else’s problem.In a terrific preview of the 2020 census by the Tribune’s Alexa Ura and Chris Essig, the ties between the citizenship question and the Texas count were made explicit: “Almost 5 million immigrants live in the state, and it’s estimated that about two-thirds are noncitizens — legal permanent residents, immigrants with another form of legal status or undocumented immigrants. Additionally, more than 1 million Texans who are U.S. citizens live with at least one family member who is undocumented.”Hispanics and poor people are already harder to count — whether there’s a citizenship question in place or not. Census tracts with lower-than-average response rates tend to have higher Hispanic and/or poor populations. Opponents to including a question on citizenship contend it will further increase chances of an undercount — particularly in areas with higher numbers of poor and Hispanic Texas residents.The federal government could save itself billions of dollars in population-related programs and services by undercounting the state’s population, and critics of the decision to include a citizenship question in the 2020 census say a Texas undercount will be one of the results. Whether that’s a conflict of interest or a clever economic strategy is up to each voter.An undercount could cost the fast-growing state some representation in Congress. It would also short-sheet Texas in funding for various federal programs, from transportation to health care, that are ladled out according to population.Within the state, the effects could be even more pronounced. When a state prepares for political redistricting following a census, the first thing that happens is called reapportionment, which is when the feds decide how many congressional seats each state should have. Texas now has 36; early estimates are that 39 might be in order after the next census.The second piece is the redistricting itself, which is when state lawmakers carve Texas into congressional, legislative and State Board of Education districts. Counties do it with their commissioner seats, and so on.If the 2020 census were to undercount Texas, and if the undercounted populations were evenly distributed across the state, the internal effects of an undercount would be relatively minor. But that’s not how the population is distributed. Remember: The census tracts with the lowest response rates tend to be more Hispanic and more impoverished than average. Take a look at the distributions of those tracts in Texas; more of them are in places like El Paso and Laredo than in Texarkana or Midland. That means, in turn, that certain parts of the state are more likely to be undercounted than others, and that the same kinds of inequities that start at the federal level will ripple through state programs and services.It could have the effect of keeping people down. And if while you’re designing a program like the 2020 census you find that something you’re doing has a pretty good chance of keeping people down, you’re on the hook for what you ultimately decide to do.In this case, that’s a choice between asking people to say whether they’re U.S. citizens or not, and — according to some demographers — dropping that question in the interest of getting a more accurate count of the number of people living in the U.S. and in each of its more than 73,000 census tracts.It’s not like the people who aren’t counted will get out of the lines for state benefits, from education to roads to health and human services to prisons. They’ll still be in those head counts. It’s just that the feds won’t have to help pay for the services those uncounted Texans will receive.Other places less affected by the counting rules will win out when it comes to politics, too. Seats in Congress are doled out — apportioned — according to population. An undercounted state will get fewer seats in Congress — less representation — than a properly counted one.And Texas, with its large Hispanic and poor populations, could be one of the big losers if the census counts are incorrect.center_img Sharelast_img read more

Reading a childs play

first_imgGlazed with myriad books from varied genres, the ongoing World Book Fair in the capital’s Pragati Maidan, shone with an astounding collection of books for children and youth, with an entire hall dedicated to this section. Move aside encyclopedias, puzzles, toys, fables, story books and novels, now its the era for three-dimensional books for children, which has replaced them all. In fact these books emerged as the most popular choice during the fair. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Visitors to the children pavilion were the highest and, interestingly, had a mix of all age groups. Apart from just reading a story, nowadays children need that extra edge to keep them hooked, was the feeling I garnered from most publishers concentrating on children’s literature. Ajay Parmar, who heads Bonnier Publishing, explained this trend, ‘There is a need for publishers to pack in a lot of activity in children’s books now. Such books instantly attract their attention. We have a series of puppet books, which makes the entire process of story-telling interesting as well as refreshing. There are also varied activities which have been incorporated in children’s books, to include 3D cut-outs, illustrations, dot-to-dot diagrams, paintings and also jigsaw puzzles. The entire process of storytelling has been completely renewed and revamped now.’ Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAn innovative book Lets Lace at Ajay’s stall focused on the process of tying laces, and at the end had a 3D shoe cut-out which pops out, where the child can actually implement what they had learnt through the course of the book. Another interesting book Theo focused on smell, where the little pup Theo goes out in search of adventures and discovers honey, rose and strawberry through the course of the journey. Each of these flavours can be touched and then smelt by the reader.A lot of young mothers and their children were seen at the stalls that had displayed books exploring fairy tales and nursery rhymes in three-dimension. Lucky Dhawan from Future books had a fantastic collection of 3D books. ‘There is a huge demand for such books. As children view them as something different and interesting, they get immediately attracted to them,’ says Lucky. There was a dedicated stall to 3D books –  what with the special glasses provided, the children had a riot reading these books. This hall, apart from books, also showcased stationary items, toys and computer games CDs for children. Naturally, children flocked here, pittering and pattering about. You could see them pulling their parents to the 3D stalls to have a look. Neeta Sinha, a young mother who bought a collection of these books said, ‘My son dragged me here as he was so fascinated by the whole idea of 3D books. Cinema has a huge role to play here, as children have been watching a lot of such films.’Apart from this hall dedicated to books for children and youth, the pavilion hosting foreign publishers was a sheer delight as well. Organised by the National Book Trust of India, the fair saw books from countries such as China, the US, Poland, South Korea and Turkey as well as United Nations agencies. This year, the focus is on France and its publishing industry and contemporary literature.Walking past the energised crowd of young school kids, families as well as couples with tiny tots, one is immediately engulfed by a feeling of sheer thirst to purchase an instant good read.The chilly breeze supplemented by the winter sun, walking past the enthusiastic faces discovering the fair was an engaging experience for a first-timer like me at the popular book fair.  For the sheer delight of engulfing yourself in an intellectually and creatively stimulating environ, don’t give this fair a miss. It is on till 10 February, so go ahead pile up some more books. And make sure you grab a 3D copy that interests you as well.last_img read more

Mamata likely to attend United India rally at Vizag on Sunday

first_imgKolkata: With the highly anticipated Lok Sabha elections drawing closer, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee is likely to attend a United India rally at Visakhapatnam on Sunday.Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telegu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu has invited Banerjee to address the rally. National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are expected to address the gathering as well. Banerjee is likely to address a political rally at Dhubri in Assam in support of the Trinamool Congress candidate on April 5. She is likely to publish the party’s election manifesto on Wednesday. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIt has been learnt that the manifesto will be divided into two halves. The first part contains the development work carried out in Bengal in the past eight years, while the second part contains the failures of the Narendra Modi government in the past five years. It was Mamata Banerjee who had initiated the move to set up the United India front to oust Narendra Modi. On January 19, the historic United India rally was held in Kolkata, where leaders of 21 political parties took part. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe rally was addressed by political veterans like Sharad Pawar, Farooq Abdullah, former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, and Mallikarjun Kharge. There were youngsters like Akhilesh Yadav, Tejashwi Yadav and Hardik Patel in the rally as well. M K Stalin had also addressed the rally. Banerjee was the first political leader to criticise the banning of high value notes announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8, 2016. Within half-an-hour of the demonetisation being announced, she had said that it would stall the development of the country and affect the common man badly. Over the years, economists of both national and international acclaim had pointed out the disaster which had hit the Indian economy due to the decision of the Narendra Modi government. One after the other, Banerjee has highlighted the shortcomings of the BJP government. Over 12,000 farmers have committed suicide, hasty implementation of GST has affected the industrialists and traders badly and Modi’s statement that Rs 15 lakh would be deposited in the bank accounts of every Indian, has not come true. Banerjee has spoken about the importance of the regional parties and emphasised that in order to save the Indian Constitution, the regional parties should be strengthened. Political experts said that Banerjee’s presence at the rally would increase the strength of the United Front.

first_img Comments   Share   TEMPE, Ariz. — For an offense, punting is considered to be a bad thing.Touchdowns, on the other hand, are considered to be a good thing. The best thing, actually.Through 15 games this season, the Arizona Cardinals have more touchdowns than punts by a 57 to 55 margin.Now, 50 of those franchise-record 57 touchdowns are courtesy of the offense, with the other seven a combination of defensive and special teams scores. What that next level could entail is anyone’s guess. If it is indeed an attainable mark then, well, wow.If nothing else, the level the Cardinals have achieved to this point is the culmination of a process that began when Arians took over before the 2013 season. The year before he arrived, in 2012, the Cardinals mustered just 21 offensive touchdowns and 25 overall. Four different quarterbacks combined to pass for just 11 scores.Arians said the difference since then is Palmer and fellow quarterback Drew Stanton staying healthy. That, and the work put in by GM Steve Keim.“The rest of it is guys growing, putting better pieces in the puzzle around him — a better offensive line, a corps of running backs,” he said. “The receiver group has gotten better. Our tight ends have really improved. So, it’s just Steve putting better pieces around Carson.”A look at the roster then and now would show a vast improvement, but still, it may be a little difficult to believe it could go from what it was to what it is so quickly. However, Arians, an offensive-minded coach, is not surprised. In fact, he thinks this level should have been reached even sooner.“This is about where I thought we’d be in Year 3,” he said. “We were getting real close last year, until the quarterbacks got hurt, and the running backs.” Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown (12) scores a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Even still, 50 offensive touchdowns still tops the league, with the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots trailing at 49 each.Arizona’s offense is good. Really, really good.After Sunday’s 38-8 win over the Green Bay Packers, Cardinals coach and play-caller Bruce Arians was asked how fun it was to call plays during a game like that.“It was fun,” he said. “It was fun.”Why wouldn’t it be?For comparison’s sake, the Cardinals’ 2008 offense, which was led by QB Kurt Warner and his trio of 1,000-yard receivers in Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston, tallied 45 offensive touchdowns  — and 51 overall — before embarking on a Super Bowl run.“That offense in 2008 was special,” Cardinals defensive lineman Calais Campbell, who was a rookie on that 2008 team, said. “There was something about it that just, I mean, the receiving corps, three guys over 1,000 yards, Kurt Warner was slinging the ball around anywhere he wanted to.“But this offense is more explosive, which is hard to say because that offense was so great. But you have so many different guys that can make plays. Our running game is going strong, our O-line is playing tough. Really, our receiving corps with so many different guys who make plays. You don’t know who’s going to be the guy who comes up with the big play, but we have a fourth, fifth, sixth receiver stepping on the field and making plays.” He’s not wrong, as 13 different offensive players have reached the end zone for Arizona this season.With just quarterback Carson Palmer playing at an MVP level while throwing to receivers like Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson along with tight ends Darren Fells and Jermaine Gresham, the team would be difficult to stop. Add in a running game that has really taken off with rookie David Johnson and is now boosted by the return of Andre Ellington and, well, you have a group that seems impossible to slow down and, if history is any indication, primed to make another Super Bowl run.No doubt Arians, along with everyone else on the team, would tell you the offense is far from a finished product.After Sunday’s win, in which the Cardinals produced 381 total net yards (121 of which came on the ground), made good on three of four trips inside the red zone and converted half of their third-down attempts, quarterback Carson Palmer said the effort was not a complete game, which is something they are still striving for.“I missed a couple throws I shouldn’t have,” he said. “So, just got to keep continuing to work and get better, and try to reach that next level.” Arians is not wrong in that it was believed, or at least hoped, that a healthy Arizona offense could be among the league’s best. At the same time, the additions of Pro Bowl guard Mike Iupati, the drafting and ascension of the rookie Johnson and the improvement from other players on the offensive side of the ball created a monster that no defense has really yet to contain.Does that mean the Cardinals are guaranteed to finish this season as Super Bowl 50 champions? Of course not, but they’re certainly in the running. Their defense has been good for the last handful of seasons, and now they have an offense to match.“It makes our job a lot easier, that’s for sure,” Campbell said of having an offense like this. “We know that we don’t have to carry the load. For a while, the defense, we felt like if we didn’t play a great game it would have been tough to get wins.“The last three years, Carson Palmer, he’s led us. He’s made the defense’s job a lot easier. There’s games where we feel like we really didn’t do much and we blew a team out. That’s the sign of a good team, you never know who you’ll have to lean on in a game. Sometimes it will be special teams, sometimes it will be offense — it just depends on the game. “But we have all facets of the game, all phases of the game. We can win any way we need to; that’s a good sign going forward.” – / 36last_img read more

How lovely to come into contact with a hidden secr

first_imgHow lovely to come into contact with a hidden secret, and like many others, fall in love with it straight away. That is what Pierre Cardin did when he first saw the six-storey Paris house that the Duke of Morny had built in 1854. Morny, the illegitimate son of Hortense de Beauharnais, was Napoleon III’s half-brother and, after a successful career in finance, his dandy pursuits took over, which included launching Deauville as a resort. The building is on Avenue Gabriel, named for Ange-Jacques Gabriel (1698-1782), Louis XV’s architect who also created what is now Place de la Concorde. Cardin used it as a showroom as well as a home, and from him it passed to Michel Reybier, who turned it into the luxury hotel it is today.Reybier is a man of wide interests, heavily into healthcare as well as wine (his eight-bedroom villa at Cos d’Estournel can be rented, but only as a buy-out). He owns the VJ Collection, led by Hotel Victoria-Jungfrau in Interlaken, and he funded, and still partly owns, Mama Shelter, which coincidentally announced last Monday 13 March 2017, its latest property, a conversion in Prague. He has his own Réserve portfolio, in Geneva, in Ramatuelle and here in Paris. The ground-floor salons, where Cardin must have had his frocks on display, now form an interconnecting series of libraries, with walls filled ceiling-high with real books, some leather bound, some, like an Assouline of Pierre Cardin, simply too heavy for any shelf. Jacques Garcia was brought in to decorate. He turned the basement wellness area, which has a considerable pool, into a red-lacquered retreat, its reception area highlighted by a pair of gold elephants, with howdahs on their backs. There is a splendid 24/7 Technogym here, and a three-cabin spa, with Nescens products, as used by Professor Jacques Proust at the Genolier Clinic for the Prevention of Ageing – I had a divine back massage that, thanks to soft piano music (other spas, please note) seemed to soothe away all the knots and pains. And then I went back up by 73 purple carpeted stairs from the lobby to my gorgeous suite overlooking Théâtre de Guignol des Champs-Elysées, Laurent restaurant and the Eiffel Tower. It was all typical Garcia: rich damasks, in shades of deep gold and dark chocolate, with a grey-flecked white marble bathroom, and two washrooms, with Toto washlets, their doors hidden behind damask wallpaper.All evening-long there are locals in the salons, the cigar room, the bar and the brasserie. At two-Michelin-star dinner in Le Gabriel chef Jérôme Banctel offers a set menu but we went à la carte, which included Norwegian salmon confit with miso, black radish and organic avocado, and green Provence asparagus with wasabi pistou and lemon zest cream. The best-selling dessert, by the way, is a hilarious six-inch-long coffee bean, formed of chocolate-dusted meringue and filled with birch syrup ice-cream. I had breakfast in the brasserie, à la carte only, with bircher muesli amuse bouche and choices that include a healthy avocado with gomasio, whole sesame seeds, roasted in hemp, with lemon, and Okinawa oils 3, 6, 9 to recover one’s omega balance (instead, they brought me a toast tasting, multi-grain rolls and gluten-free).I smiled a lot at this luxury hotel, particularly when we toasted the owner of our Michel Reybier Goulée by Cos d’Estournel 2013 wine, in glasses – Riedel, of course.Mary Gostelow travels over 300 days a year, doing one-night stands in top hotels around the world.last_img read more
