first_imgThe most fashionable sisters of Bollywood, Karisma and Kareena Kapoor, were recently spotted at the Mumbai airport along with cousin Ranbir Kapoor.While the sisters were returning from Dubai after attending a promotional event for Kareena’s soon-to-be-released film Heroine, Ranbir had been holidaying there with his family to celebrate father Rishi Kapoor’s 60th birthday.Not seen together too often, the Kapoor cousins surely made heads turn at the airport.

HMD Global teases Nokia launch event in India, Nokia 6.1 Plus expected

first_imgHMD Global hasn’t had a major Nokia launch event in India since April when it brought the Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco. It’s interesting because the company has announced a number of new Nokia phones since April in places like China and Moscow that are yet to make their way to India. But HMD this week posted a teaser that suggests the company is planning its next India launch event soon while announcing a Nokia fan contest. Winners of this contest will get to attend the launch event that is yet to have a date.HMD’s teaser doesn’t give us any details as to the nature of the event and the next Nokia phone we can expect. Based on the phones launched in recent months, it could be anything from the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 5.1 to the Nokia 6.1 Plus aka Nokia X6 and Nokia 5.1 Plus aka Nokia X5. Rumours, however, have been leaning more towards the Nokia 6.1 Plus, which has been a highly requested phone from fans around the world, including India.The Nokia 6.1 Plus was initially announced only for the China market as the Nokia X6. But after a poll conducted by the company that saw a majority seeking a global launch of the Nokia X6, HMD announced the device as the Nokia 6.1 Plus with Hong Kong being the first global market. The company’s latest contest seems like a perfect homage for fans to join the event for a Nokia 6.1 Plus India launch.A report by NokiaPowerUser suggested the Nokia 6.1 Plus could come to India by the end of August or early September, based on information from sources in retail. The phone has also popped up on the official Indian website with its user guide and India SAR details being listed. This strongly suggests the upcoming event could see the launch of the Nokia 6.1 Plus.advertisementThe Nokia 6.1 Plus (or Nokia X6) is the first Nokia phone to sport a display notch. The device sports a 5.8-inch FHD+ (1080×2280) 19:9 display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 636 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. This is offered with 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.The dual camera system on the Nokia 6.1 Plus includes a primary 16-megapixel sensor and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor. Housed within the notch on the front is a 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The cameras get some AI support as well which helps improve image quality and bokeh effect. The dual-SIM Nokia 6.1 Plus houses a 3,060mAh battery with support for fast charging via USB Type-C.In Hong Kong, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is priced HKD 2,288 (approx Rs 20,100). If he device is indeed on its way to India, we expect the pricing to be in this same region so that it sits comfortably between the Nokia 6.1 and the Nokia 7 Plus. We should know more about the upcoming Nokia event in the coming days.last_img read more

Gautam Gambhir bats for Ravichandran Ashwin’s inclusion in World Cup squad

first_imgFormer opener Gautam Gambhir wants Ravichandran Ashwin to be included in the India’s one day international team ahead of the 2019 ICC World Cup in England and Wales. Gambhir said a finger-spinner like him could be as effective as a wrist-spinner in English conditions.Ashwin last played for India in coloured clothing in July 2017. Wrist-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have since become frontline spinners for India in limited-overs format. While Ravindra Jadeja has managed to make a comeback in the shorter formats, Ashwin has not.”Both wrist-spinners [Kuldeep and Chahal] have done well in the last one year. But I still feel that Ashwin is somebody we should look at. I’ve always believed that a quality spinner is a quality spinner irrespective of whether he is a wrist-spinner or a finger-spinner,” said Gambhir at a promotional event.Gambhir cited the example of premier Australia tweaker Nathan Lyon, who recently made an ODI comeback following his stellar performances in the longest format.”He [Lyon[ is probably the best off-spinner in the world and he’s a finger-spinner. I feel that we should not differentiate because there’s a wrist-spinner and so there’s no space for a finger-spinner.”I think R Ashwin is someone who we should always consider because we are looking at conditions in England during that time of the year. Wickets could be flat and worn out. So a finger-spinner can be effective with the ball as well,” said Gambhir.Commenting on opener Shikhar Dhawan, who was not amongst the runs in the ODI series against Australia, Gambhir said the southpaw should have played first-class cricket since he was not part of the Test series Down Under.advertisement”I am a little disappointed because some of the guys should have played first-class cricket. Being away from Test cricket should have actually pushed them to play first-class cricket.”Whoever was selected to play [only] white-ball cricket, because it is a World Cup year, I think it should have pushed all these guys like MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan and Ambati Rayudu all those who went to Australia – to play first-class cricket,” he said.last_img read more

Ive never even put her to rest yet … Cindy Gladues mom

first_img(Cindy Gladue in an undated photo was found murdered in a motel room in 2011. The accused, Bradley Barton was acquitted. The Crown has appealed the acquittal)Editors Note: This report contains graphic details. Brandi MorinAPTN National NewsDonna Mcleod gets constant flashbacks of a photograph of her daughter Cindy Gladue, 37, lying dead in a bloody scene in a bathtub.She wasn’t supposed to see the picture.While attending the murder trial of the man accused of killing her daughter, she had made clear to the court to let her know when something unsettling would be shown.That day she was told it was an error as she broke down in tears and left the room.“I sat through a lot of stuff,” said Mcleod. “Now that picture is stuck with me.”Bradley Barton, a trucker from Ontario passing through Edmonton, was charged with first-degree murder after Gladue was found dead in his hotel bathroom in June 2011.He checked out of his hotel after finding Gladue lifeless in the bathtub the morning of June 11.Mcleod said she heard in court that he panicked and walked around outside in the parking lot before going back to the room and calling 911.He told the operators that he didn’t know Gladue – but later, he admitted to hiring her for sex.His lawyer told the judge and jury that Gladue’s death was a result of Barton and her having rough sex.The chief medical examiner said Cindy injury was caused by an object such as a knife or with extreme force by his hand because it was a clear cut.Donna McLeod. Photo: Brandi Morin/APTNMcleod attended the trial, mostly alone, for four weeks.It was there that she first learned that Gladue’s pelvic area had been cut from her body by the chief medical examiner before her cremation.Preserved and presented to the jury as evidence, it was thought they would be able to observe more clearly the 11 cm wound inside Gladue’s vagina that killed her.“I’ve never even put her to rest yet because they have part of her…it’s like a piece of her is missing, she’s not all there,” said Mcleod who has Gladue’s ashes in an urn at home.Barton said he had inserted four fingers, past the knuckles, into her vagina. But prosecutors couldn’t prove that Barton cut her or hurt her on purpose.It’s been almost two years since Barton was acquitted of Gladue’s murder.Barton’s acquittal sparked countless protests across Canada demanding a retrial.“I was shocked, I couldn’t believe it (that he was acquitted),” said Mcleod.Last September crown prosecutors appealed the case before the Alberta Court of Appeal.The Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) joined the Institute for the Advancement of Aboriginal Women to request intervenor status.LEAF director Kim Stanton said they took issue with the way the trial had addressed the law of consent.The jury believed the defence argument that Gladue had consented to rough sex with Barton after he had hired her for two nights of sexual intercourse.“We were concerned given everything else that would be going on in the appeal that the concerns we had about how the law of consent was applied and interpreted, as well as how Cindy was characterized in the trial-the stereotyping of her as an Indigenous woman in the trial,” said Stanton.Throughout the trial, Stanton pointed out that there were several references made to Gladue as “the native girl” and a “prostitute.”“Aside from the horrendous use of her body as evidence, the way that she was referred to, not as Miss Gladue, but as “the native girl”. It’s just so emblematic of how indigenous women are dehumanized and treated as less than other people,” said Stanton.Mcleod said the jurors were mostly white and that if Cindy wasn’t Indigenous she may had gotten justice.Stanton believes it’s important that what happened to Cindy is understood in a broader sense.“I’m not just talking about her death, I’m talking about the treatment of her by the justice system after her death. It’s not just important to Indigenous women but to all because of the way the law of consent was applied,” she said.Although Gladue had her struggles including an addiction to alcohol, she was a friend, daughter and mother.Her three daughters are doing well, said Mcleod who has become a mother figure to them.Gladue now has a two-year-old grandson.Mcleod wants to take Gladue’s remains home to Athabasca to be buried alongside her grandparents whom she was close to.But it could be a while before the rest of Gladue is returned to her family.Mcleod is prepared to sit through another trial for her daughters’ sake and hopes that the crown’s case is successful this time.The night Gladue died Mcleod said she couldn’t sleep, something was off. All of a sudden she felt a hand come and rub her back.“Maybe that was her coming to tell me goodbye.”The appeal decision is currently on reserve while the justice reviews the evidence and the law, prior to delivering a decision at a later date.bmorin@aptn.calast_img read more

Sri Lanka backs Belarus at UNHRC

Sri Lanka today backed Belarus when the Special UN Rapporteur on Belarus submitted a report against the country at the 23rd session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) meeting in Geneva.The Sri Lankan delegation said that it was disturbing to note that the report of the Special Rapporteur on Belarus emanated from a politicized mandate and was not the result of genuine dialogue with the Belarus government. The Foreign Ministry said that during the debates a group of countries supported Belarus and ranged against the mandate of the Special Rapporteur. They were as follows: Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Venezuela, Cuba, Turkmenistan, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Indonesia, Zimbabwe, Myanmar, Lebanon, Djibouti, Uzbekistan, Morocco, Palestine, Bahrain, Bolivia, Laos, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and others.Mainly EU member states, which charged the death penalty and insufficient protection of the rights of sexual minorities as a major human rights violation in Belarus supported the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on Belarus. (Colombo Gazette) Meanwhile the Belarus Foreign Ministry, this evening, noted the support given by Sri Lanka to the country at the 23rd UNHRC session today. “We also note that the human rights situation of Belarus does not warrant urgent and immediate attention on the ground,” the Sri Lankan delegation said. read more

Rain snow and frost further delays harvest risks damaging crops

A weekend of nasty weather is slowing a harvest that’s already well behind schedule, after rain, snow and sub-zero temperatures descended over crops in Saskatchewan.The Ministry of Environment’s latest crop report estimated that farmers had harvested less than 40 per cent of the crop as of Sept. 23. Shannon Friesen, a crops extensions specialist with the ministry, expects to see little progress in the week since.“We will continue to see a delay in harvest,” Friesen said. “Now we have to wait for the snow to melt, for those fields to dry up and for equipment to actually be able to get back into the fields.”Temperatures dipped below freezing early Saturday morning in the area around Regina. Then heavy rain and snow battered the fields for hours on Sunday. Snow also fell around Saskatoon. Most weather stations in the province’s agricultural region detected temperatures near 0 C at the chilliest points of the weekend.According to Friesen, frost may also have caused damage to crops, particularly in areas to the north where harvest is less advanced.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.She fears crops will continue to be downgraded as bleaching, staining and sprouting lower quality.With so much money still lying out in the fields, farmers are feeling the pressure. Lorne Herauf, who owns Hilltop Farms near Regina with his wife, feels like he hasn’t had a week of decent weather all harvest.“You just get a half a day here, a half a day there,” Herauf said. “It’s usually too wet to get out there before noon.”He’s only combined about 500 acres of his roughly 1,500 acres of wheat, barley, canola, flax and lentils. It’s the cereals he worries about the most.“It’s downgraded now,” he said. “I’d say most of the cereals would just be feed because they’ve been out there a long time.”Herauf expects that hundreds of thousand dollars worth of crop is at stake.“It’s very stressful when you’ve got all that money sticking out there and you can’t do anything about it,” he said.Environment Canada is forecasting yet more precipitation on Tuesday before conditions begin to improve. But with double digits in the forecast by Thursday, Friesen is hoping that farmers might be back at work by next week.Donna Demyen said it will take at least three days for her fields to dry out. She owns Ol Mill Berries near Qu’Appelle. Her fruit is safe and mostly harvested, but she can’t say the same about her quarter section of canola.The whole crop is still on the field, swathed and ready for a combine that won’t be out for days at best.“It’s rather depressing because this is what your livelihood is based on, and it’s not getting into the bin,” Demyen said.Three times this harvest season, a short spell of decent weather has come to raise her spirits, before the wet weather pounds them back down to earth.“Just when you think you’re ready to go again, you get more moisture,” she said.Some farmers are much further ahead, like Milt Rigetti. He and his son farm 17,500 acres around Moose Jaw and Grand Coulee, and have just 2,700 acres of canola left to go. But he still expects a below-average harvest.It seems like the rain didn’t come when it was wanted, and then stuck around when its welcome had run out.“I don’t know if we’ve ever had a year start so dry and then end up so wet,” said Rigetti.awhite-crummey@postmedia.com read more

Royal Navy confronts Argentine vessel snooping for oil near Falkland Islands

An Argentine ship has been caught in Falklands waters ‘snooping for oil’, the Royal Navy has revealed.HMS Clyde was scrambled to see off a ship from the Argentine navy thought to be prodding military defences in seas off the Falkland Islands on September 2.The Argentinian survey ship, ARA Puerto Deseado, switched off her satellite tracker and sailed up to the edge of British territorial waters on Sunday afternoon.The Royal Navy patrol vessel stationed in the Falkland Islands, HMS Clyde, reacted swiftly after the Argentinian vessel changed course and speed towards the 12-mile territorial limit.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––The stand-off ended when ARA Puerto Deseado, bristling with equipment to investigate the depths of the ocean, retreated and turned on her tracker again. She returned to port the next day. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Do we need a frigate or destroyer in the South Atlantic all the time? Not necessarily. This in no way should take anything from the excellent HMS Clyde, operating alone and unafraid around the clock in some of the most hostile waters on the planet.”A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: “This was unusual activity rather than illegal or confrontational. We are comfortable with vessels working in that area, but it was the course and speed [of the Argentinian ship] towards the islands which was unusual”. Nick Childs of the International Institute for Strategic Studies says it was a fairly minor incident and part of the nature of maritime operations, especially when compared to the military probing immediately after the Falklands War.However, he said “the maritime domain is increasingly contested globally and this incident shows how the Navy is increasingly being  pulled in all sorts of directions at the same time with limited resources”.Former captain of frigate HMS St Albans, Commander Tom Sharpe, suggested the Argentinian ship had been snooping for oil reserves. He thought the response from HMS Clyde had been timely, proportional and appropriate, and therefore had the desired effect. HMS Clyde, a River Class Patrol Ship.

Column We need new ways to acknowledge grief in our rapidly changing

first_imgTRADITIONALLY, THE IRISH do death really well. We have many rich practices engrained in our culture that have historically assisted the grieving process. From the vocal lament of keening at funerals to wearing a black pin on clothing for a year after bereavement, these supports have helped people work through pain and loss with personal dignity, honour and the support from their community.But what happens when these traditions fade away? What happens when your community experiences mass emigration? What happens when the previous centres of community no longer serve a huge portion of the population, as is case with churches? What happens when your community is more online than offline?These are some of the questions that Ireland’s new National Grieving Day are trying to address. The Day, which is being celebrated today in Ireland and around the world, is being marked by community-hosted events which are helping people move through their hurt, loss and grief towards celebration, hope and light. National Grieving Day arose from a recognition that in these modern times, we need to find new ways for our society to collectively acknowledge and release our grief, mindful that our losses might be that of a loved one, or an expectation, a home, a way of life or a period in our life.Working through grief in daily lifeMany traditional cultures around the world today have vibrant rituals integrated into their society to honour grief. But these days in Ireland, unless you’re religious or engaged in regular spiritual practice, there’s no place for people to work through their grief in daily life.But it’s not just the lack of a central location to mourn that is the problem. Grief also seems to have a short shelf-life these days. We are expected to ‘get over’ things quickly by outsourcing our emotional processing to professionals or to compartmentalise our life, so we end up not bringing our whole person to work or to our position in the community or to the family dinner table.The national guidelines around bereavement leave for civil servants is five days and it has become almost taboo to show our sorrow or rage, as it can make others feel uncomfortable and be perceived as a sign of weakness or dysfunctionality. This tendency to ‘just put the head down and get on with things’ can potentially be damaging, as by denying or repressing our grief, and treating it as a private pathology, our power to deal with life’s many hurdles is greatly diminished. We become more apathetic and our capacity to respond to our own suffering and that of those around us is greatly reduced.So how do we allow our pain to be fully part of our lives? Could it be to befriend it as much as the joy we all seek? How can we learn to continue living vibrant lives in co-existence with our grief in all its complexity?The gift of permissionThe attitude of ‘getting over’ grief is a misnomer. The only way past our grief is to move through it. Grief is a verb the way love is verb. To make grief manifest in our lives is not just to feel it inside but to make movements and create actions bringing us deeper into it – the scary part we shy away from – and then through it towards a new perspective. That’s where change becomes possible. We need to acknowledge our grief not just on an intellectual level but through direct embodied experience, and key to this is giving ourselves permission.The gift of permission, of allowing ourselves to acknowledge what we’re feeling without trying to deny any part of it, is transformational. What do you say when you meet a friend who has lost their job, or their home, or when their business has gone down the tube? Navigating the compassion and the shame around grief can be difficult and uncomfortable. We can only overcome our fear, anger, sorrow, emptiness, and despair when we give ourselves full permission to feel these emotions completely. The phrase “For every tear that is suppressed, another bullet is manifest” frames the importance of honouring these sometimes unwelcome feelings in our life.We all encounter dark emotionsThe experience of the darker range of emotions is healthy and natural, we all encounter them at some point in our life. To help communities and our nation move forwards, practical ways to help people move through these emotions are vital. Perhaps the local events around National Grieving Day today can go some way towards lifting the bind that unprocessed grief can lock us into.What a gift we can give to the next generation, and many generations to come, if we as a nation commit to changing our attitudes about grief. A brighter, more hopeful future can emerge from the personal and societal acknowledgement of grief and the learning that arises from such witnessing. It is time to bring the grieving process out of the shadows.Written by Lydia Kiernan, founder of National Grieving Day, and Christine Hadekel, of the National Grieving Day team.Lydia Kiernan is a change catalyst who works globally and at home in Ireland, directing transformational leadership and personal development programmes.

Pourquoi éternue ton Les petits secrets de léternuement

first_imgPourquoi éternue t-on ? Les petits secrets de l’éternuementBruyant ou plus discret, incontrôlé ou prévisible, l’éternuement est une brusque expiration d’air par le nez et par la bouche qu’il n’est pas rare d’entendre au quotidien. Pour autant, savons-nous réellement pourquoi nous éternuons et comment ceci se produit ? Explications.Les narines qui chatouillent, grattouillent et tout d’un coup “aaaaatchouuuuum !”, c’est l’explosion. Ces derniers temps, il n’est pas rare d’entendre quelqu’un éternuer. Une fois, deux fois, parfois plus et ce, en pleine air dans la rue, au bureau ou même chez soi. Le plus souvent, l’éternuement est totalement imprévisible et incontrôlé. Pour autant, ce geste est bien moins simple et anodin qu’il n’en a l’air. Il fait même appel à un mécanisme bien précis qui remonte jusqu’au cerveau.Expulser l’air pour nettoyer le nez L’éternuement est une brusque expiration d’air par le nez et la bouche provoqué par un mouvement tout aussi brusque des muscles expirateurs. Mais il se produit dans des circonstances bien particulières : lorsque le nez est confronté à une substance ou un élément jugé irritant. L’éternuement constitue alors un mécanisme de défense bien rôdé qui va permettre d’expulser l’intrus. Et c’est dans les narines que tout commence : ces orifices sont chargés de filtrer l’air que l’on inspire. Pour cela, ils sont tapissés de poils et de mucus qui vont capter les éléments indésirables emportés par l’air pour les empêcher de passer dans le reste des voies respiratoires. Dans certains cas, ces éléments sont suffisamment petits pour être poussés vers l’oesophage et l’estomac afin d’être éliminés. Mais dans d’autres, ils sont trop gros pour que le même système se mette en place. Or, le nez est aussi chargé de récepteurs qui vont détecter la présence de ces éléments. Une fois ces derniers attrapés, les capteurs vont alors envoyer un signal au cerveau via certains nerfs qui va en retour ordonner leur évacuation. Une expulsion qui va passer tout d’abord par l’inspiration d’un grand volume d’air puis par la contraction des fameux muscles expirateurs. L’air expulsé peut atteindre la vitesse de 200 kilomètres par heure à la sortie du nez. D’où le bruit parfois tonitruant. La fonction de l’éternuement est donc simple : nettoyer le nez de tous les éléments intrus qui s’y trouvent. Pollen et poussières, des déclencheurs variés Toutefois, les déclencheurs possibles de ce mécanisme sont variées : il peut s’agir de poussières, de certaines substances comme du poivre ou d’autres éléments tout à fait anodins qui sont naturellement irritants. Mais les pollens qui volètent dans l’air peuvent aussi être responsables d’éternuements chez les personnes qui souffrent d’allergie. Ceci parce que l’organisme de ces individus reconnait ces pollens comme étrangers et ordonne donc leur évacuation. Et lorsque l’on a un rhume alors ? La fonction est la même à la différence qu’elle prend une dimension encore plus importante. En effet, selon une étude parue en 2012, l’éternuement et l’expiration brutale d’air provoque aussi une surpression à l’intérieur des poumons jusqu’au nez. Ceci a pour effet de redynamiser le système de circulation du mucus afin qu’il parvienne mieux à capter les poussières et à les éliminer. C’est pourquoi on éternue davantage lorsque l’on est enrhumé. De façon générale, tant que l’intrus n’est pas évacué, les éternuements se répètent. On peut donc éternuer une fois, deux fois voire plus si l’expulsion n’est pas assez efficace. On parle alors de sternutation. Et pourquoi ferme t-on systématiquement les yeux quand on éternue ? Tout simplement parce que la pression générée par le mécanisme est tellement forte qu’elle pourrait endommager les yeux en les faisant sortir des orbites. Paupières fermées, il n’y a donc pas de risque qu’ils s’échappent ! Eviter l’éternuement ?Au vu d’une telle fonction, il est préférable de ne pas empêcher un éternuement. Néanmoins, lorsqu’il survient dans des circonstances inappropriées, il existe quelques méthodes pouvant permettre de le retenir : retenir sa respiration, serrer la racine du nez, avaler sa salive de façon répétée, poser son doigt sous son nez ou encore fermer les yeux et poser ses doigts dessus. Reste que ces gestes ne sont sans surprise pas toujours efficaces… Certains conseillent ainsi de se boucher le nez en fermant la bouche. Toutefois, si cela n’empêche pas l’éternuement, il ne faut pas maintenir son nez pincé, sans quoi la pression de l’air qui n’a pas pu sortir peut endommager l’oreille interne. De même, il faut être prudent lorsque l’on éternue car dans certains cas, l’expiration est tellement puissante qu’elle peut provoquer un traumatisme (en se cognant par exemple) voire des lésions dans certaines parties du corps.  L’éternuement, révélateur de personnalité À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Par ailleurs, cela n’aura échappé à personne : tout le monde n’éternue pas de la même manière. Certains sont très bruyants, d’autres plus discrets. Chez certains, les éternuements ne sont que faibles quand chez d’autres, ils expulsent de grandes quantités d’air, prenant un aspect plutôt explosif. Pourquoi de telles différences ? La structure du nez et des os de la face entrerait bien évidement en jeu, mais pas seulement selon Alan Hirsh, neurologue et psychiatre de Chicago.Ce spécialiste estime que si l’éternuement est mécanique, il pourrait aussi refléter un peu de notre personnalité, “comme le rire”. La manière dont nous l’appréhendons aurait ainsi une influence sur les caractéristiques de notre éternuement.  Le 4 juillet 2013 à 10:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Police release photos of Pembroke Pines school burglar

first_imgPEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) – Police have released surveillance pictures of a man who, they said, broke into and robbed a school in Pembroke Pines, last month.According to investigators, the burglar targeted West Broward High School, located near Johnson Street and Northwest 209th Avenue, Sept. 23, just before 2 a.m.Police said the subject broke into the school by forcibly opening a door on the first floor.

first_img Comments   Share   However, according to ESPN NFL writer Josina Anderson, free agent tackle Max Starks visited and took a physical with the Cardinals Tuesday, and Arizona Republic Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers says the player’s agent says his client is considering “several” teams, including Arizona.A veteran of nine NFL seasons — all with the Pittsburgh Steelers — the 6-foot-8, 345-pound Starks has long been regarded as a solid player.How he would fit in Arizona is unclear, though he’d presumably start at left tackle, meaning the rest of the line would shift around some. However, given that the Cardinals allowed the most sacks in the NFL last season and had the league’s worst rushing attack, adding any talent — no matter how it affects the rest of the line — would have to be considered a good thing. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Arizona Cardinals have spent a considerable amount of time trying to upgrade their offensive line, and as OTAs commenced this week it appeared they were fairly set.Levi Brown and Bobby Massie will be the tackles, Daryn Colledge and Jonathan Cooper will line up at guard, and Lyle Sendlein will be the center.Add in the depth provided by tackles Nate Potter and guards Chilo Rachal and Earl Watford, and it didn’t seem like much more needed to be added to the group.
