China sends missiles to contested South China Sea island: Taiwan

first_imgChina has deployed an advanced surface-to-air missile system to one of the disputed islands it controls in the South China Sea, Taiwan and US officials said, ratcheting up tensions even as US President Barack Obama urged restraint in the region.Taiwan defence ministry spokesman Major General David Lo told Reuters the missile batteries had been set up on Woody Island. The island is part of the Paracels chain, under Chinese control for more than 40 year but also claimed by Taiwan and Vietnam.”Interested parties should work together to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea region and refrain from taking any unilateral measures that would increase tensions,” Lo said on Wednesday.A US defence official also confirmed the “apparent deployment” of the missiles, first reported by Fox News.Images from civilian satellite company ImageSat International show two batteries of eight surface-to-air missile launchers as well as a radar system, according to Fox News.News of the missile deployment came as Obama and leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations concluded a summit in California, where they discussed the need to ease tensions in the region but did not include specific mention of China’s assertive pursuit of its claims in the South China Sea.China claims most of the South China Sea, through which more than $5 trillion in global trade passes every year, and has been building runways and other infrastructure on artificial islands to bolster its claims.”We discussed the need for tangible steps in the South China Sea to lower tensions including a halt to further reclamation, new construction and militarization of disputed areas,” Obama told a news conference.advertisementThe United States has said it will continue conducting “freedom of navigation patrols” by ships and aircraft to assure unimpeded passage through the region, where Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Taiwan have rival claims.Rising tensionsMira Rapp-Hooper, a South China Sea expert from of the Center for a New American Security, said it was not the first time that China has sent such weapons to the Paracels, under Chinese control since 1974.”I do think surface to air missiles are a considerable development,” she said. “If they have been deployed they are probably China’s effort to signal a response to freedom-of navigation operations, but I don’t think it is a totally unprecedented deployment.”A US Navy destroyer sailed within 12 nautical miles of Triton Island in the Paracels chain last month in a move the Pentagon said was aimed at countering efforts by China, Vietnam and Taiwan to limit freedom of navigation. China condemned the US action as provocative.China has said it would not seek militarization of its South China Sea islands and reefs, but that did not mean it would not set up defences.”Woody Island belongs to China,” said Ni Lexiong, a naval expert at the Shanghai University of Political Science and Law.”Deploying surface-to-air missiles on our territory is completely within the scope of our sovereign rights. We have sovereignty there, so we can choose whether to militarize it.”Taiwan President-elect Tsai Ing-wen said tensions were now higher in the region.”We urge all parties to work on the situation based on principles of peaceful solution and self-control,” Tsai said.The missiles arrived at Woody Island over the past week, Fox News said. According to the images, a beach on the island was empty on Feb. 3, but the missiles were visible by Feb. 14, it reported.A US official told Fox News the imagery viewed appears to show the HQ-9 air defence system, which has a range of 125 miles (200 km) and would pose a threat to any airplanes, civilian or military, flying close by.Asked about the report, Bill Urban, a Pentagon spokesman, said: “While I cannot comment on matters related to intelligence, we do watch these matters very closely.”last_img read more

Chelsea lose in Lyon but Erin Cuthbert gives hope for semi-final second leg

first_imgWomen’s football Share via Email Read more With Fran Kirby having seen her tame penalty saved by Sarah Bouhaddi on the stroke of half-time and the French goalkeeper smartly blocking from Maren Mjelde at close range, it seemed the visitors had let one chance too many slip through their fingers.Hayes spoke of “fighting fires” against Paris Saint-Germain and at the Groupama Stadium that quickly became her task. Sophie Ingle, Ji So-yun, Karen Carney and Cuthbert all took turns dropping deep to help protect the back four against “the Harlem Globetrotters of women’s football”. And, initially at least, the dam held.But the warning signs where there. After only three minutes Delphine Cascarino flew past Joanna Andersson on the right but her sweeping cross was a just too far ahead of Eugénie Le Sommer.Perhaps hoping to unsettle Ann-Katrin Berger, who spilled the ball across the line in the second leg of Chelsea’s quarter-final win against PSG, Jess Fishlock had a go from distance but did not muster enough power to trouble the German.Chelsea’s first chance came just inside 10 minutes when Cuthbert shrugged off Fishlock and looked to free Kirby but her pass was intercepted.With Hayes pacing on the edge of her box Lyon upped the pressure. Lucy Bronze raced clear of Carney and into the box. Without looking up, she squared to Ada Hegerberg but the Ballon d’Or winner’s first-time shot from close range was brilliantly kept out by a diving Berger.It was just shy of the half-hour mark when the dam broke, and how cruelly it did. Cascarino raced into the box and her shot was lifted over Berger by the heel of Eriksson, whose 91st-minute own goal last weekend sent Chelsea to defeat in the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.With Le Sommer throwing her arms up and down to encourage the crowd after getting the better of Millie Bright and winning a corner, there was no let-up. A Dzsenifer Marozsán corner got a sliver of a touch from the leaping Henry before flying past Berger to bounce on the line and in for 2-0. On the stroke of half-time Chelsea again had a golden chance to score a desperately needed away goal when they were awarded a penalty after Le Sommer tripped Bachmann just inside the box on the left. Kirby stepped up – and stuttered her run – but her tame shot was palmed away by Bouhaddi. Share on Twitter Reuse this content Two minutes after the restart and again the Blues should have scored, Mjelde found herself on the end of a long pass before beating both Selma Bacha and Wendie Renard but – again – Bouhaddi made the save, this time with her feet.From there it was all Lyon. Hegerberg fired wide before Berger dealt well with efforts from Le Sommer and Renard. But the introduction of England had an immediate impact. “I think Renard needed a bit more pressure,” she said. Back to goal, she headed the ball powerfully down at the feet of Cuthbert, who fired delightfully past Bouhaddi. “A lot of it can be luck sometimes and I knew if we kept fighting like we did we could get a better result,” said England.“It’s who we are: we get back, get up, be brave,” said Hayes. “Leave with no regret, I don’t want any regret and I know what our team is capable of. The rest of the world saw that today. I don’t know too many teams that have come here and played as well as we have.” Emma Hayes and Beth England said Chelsea showed that the five-times Champions League winners Lyon are human after Erin Cuthbert’s second-half volley left their Champions League tie wide open, with Hayes adding she was disappointed not to leave with a victory.“I’m gutted, I can’t lie,” said the Chelsea manager. “We’re in the tie but we should have won the game. I really do respect Lyon and their achievements but I think we showed today that they are human.”England, who set up Cuthbert’s goal, said: “Look they’re humans, we’re all humans, they’re not unbeatable and as long we stick to our plan we know we can exploit their weaknesses – every team has them.”Hayes had warned in midweek that Chelsea “always score an away goal” but at half-time, a second own goal in a week from Magda Eriksson and an Amandine Henry header looked to have ended their hopes of an upset. However, Cuthbert’s stunning volley ensured her side welcome the Champions League holders to Kingsmeadow on Sunday with a vital away goal on the board.

We created the most dangerous chances and we were the ones that could have won.”We have to defend as a team and we must attack and hurt them like we did today. We hope to get better luck in Barcelona.”Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Alonso echoed the sentiments of their team-mate, the goalkeeper pointing to the obvious threat posed by Barca’s talisman.”We have to defend well, we will try to keep Messi as far away as we can from the goal, and then I believe we have the level to go forward and to score and to make them doubt,” Courtois said.”We know playing in that stadium is very hard, they have great games where they score a lot but it’s my task to avoid that.”Alonso added: “For sure, it will be more difficult than today, there. As a team we’re satisfied with this match and excited to go there.”Barcelona is the favourite, especially in their stadium. But, we don’t give up and Chelsea will face them there.”last_img read more

Cabinet Mikmaq Chiefs Work Together to Strengthen Communities Create Jobs

first_imgThe province and Mi’kmaq Chiefs are working together to help build stronger communities and take best advantage of the economic opportunities ahead in Nova Scotia. These were the lead agenda items at the fourth annual meeting of the provincial cabinet and Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs today, Oct. 18. The meeting in Millbrook First Nation brought together cabinet ministers and chiefs to discuss these issues, as well as shared concerns about changes to the federal approach to funding and negotiations. “This meeting is an opportunity for us to further our nation-to-nation relationship,” said Chief Terrance Paul, co-chair of the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs. “Through this dialogue, we hope to see tangible results for the Mi’kmaq, and for all Nova Scotians.” “With so many opportunities on the horizon, we need to make the most of them, to create jobs and stronger communities for first nations across the province, and for people of all backgrounds, from all communities,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “Working together, we can help Mi’kmaq businesses grow, and get people ready for good jobs, which will benefit the entire province.” Premier Dexter said the Mi’kmaq should have the opportunity to understand the path needed to take advantage of opportunities like shipbuilding contracts, for example, and then have access to the skills and training needed to build a career in the marine industry. The two governments meet annually to review progress and set priorities. The province is working with the Mi’kmaq in a number of areas, including the Made-in-Nova Scotia Process negotiations, the Mi’kmaq-Nova Scotia-Canada Tripartite Forum and a Mi’kmaq-Nova Scotia-Canada Consultation Terms of Reference.last_img read more

UN delegation to focus on Darfur deployment at AfricanEuropean summit

6 December 2007Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro is heading a United Nations delegation to this weekend’s African Union-European Union summit in Lisbon amid mounting international concern about the obstacles to deploying a hybrid UN-AU peacekeeping force to the war-wracked Darfur region of Sudan. Ms. Migiro will be joined in the Portuguese capital by the UN High Representative for Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Countries and Small Island Developing States Cheick Sidi Diarra, Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet and Deputy Chef de Cabinet Kim Won-Soo.Mr. Mulet and Mr. Kim are scheduled to meet with the Sudanese delegation attending the summit on issues relating to the deployment of the hybrid force, known as UNAMID, to try to quell the fighting between rebels, Government forces and allied militias that has left at least 200,000 people dead and more than 2.2 million others displaced since 2003.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told reporters today that the UN officials will be holding the meetings on the sidelines of the summit to try to resolve the issue of the composition of UNAMID and other issues concerning its deployment.“We must absolutely have an effective, robust force,” Mr. Ban said. “Without it, there can be no security, nor credible progress in the peace talks. Rebel leaders will simply not join the process without an effective peacekeeping force in place.”UNAMID is due to take over from the existing but under-resourced AU mission (known as AMIS) by the start of next month, but it lacks offers for crucial force units and the Sudanese Government has raised a series of objections and obstacles.The mission is short of one heavy and one medium transport unit, three military utility aviation units and one light helicopter unit, while an earlier pledge for one reconnaissance company has been withdrawn.Mr. Ban said that, despite bilateral talks in person or by telephone with “all possible potential” contributor countries, “I have not been able to get even one single helicopter commitment. We need, at this time, 24 helicopters – three tactical helicopter [units] and one light tactical helicopter unit.”Acknowledging that many potential contributing countries are overstretched in their critical military assets, he warned that nevertheless “the entire mission is at risk” from the lack of key capabilities.The Secretary-General has written to Security Council President, Ambassador Marcello Spatafora of Italy, to voice his “grave concern with regard to the shortage of critical assets” and to urge Council members to “exercise their influence so as to transform international concern for the situation in Darfur into the tangible provision of the 24 helicopters that could make such a critical difference to the people of Darfur.”Khartoum is also yet to approve units for the force, which is supposed to be predominantly African, from Thailand, Nepal and Scandinavia, and it has also not facilitated the acquisition of land and flight operations rights for UN aircraft, impeding the ability of UNAMID to carry out its mandate.Stating he will write a letter to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on the issue, Mr. Ban warned: “Without mobility and transportation, it will be extremely difficult for us to deploy our forces. And even [if] they are deployed, without effective, efficient, mobility capacity, we will not be able to protect civilians and even our own soldiers.”The UN chief also noted that his Special Envoy on Darfur, Jan Eliasson, is considering holding a major meeting among the region’s rebel movements to help them find a common negotiating position and team for planned direct talks in Sirte, Libya, between the Government and the rebels to solve the conflict.Meanwhile, Choi Young-jin, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Côte d’Ivoire, will also be attending the Lisbon gathering to participate in a separate mini-summit on the West African nation’s current problems and challenges. read more

Chinese iOS developer accused of stealing Torchlight assets booted from App Store

first_imgA few days ago, the indie game developer Runic Games started making it known that a Chinese developer had ripped it off. A development house called EGLS had published a game in the Canadian App Store called Armed Heroes that seemed to have stolen all the game assets from Runic’s popular Torchlight RPG. It’s now looking like Apple has pulled the app, but the controversy isn’t over quite yet.Runic is adamant that EGLS has copied its game assets. While exploring the iOS application package, Runic found that most of the files were exact matches for the ones in Torchlight. Despite being shifted around for a touchscreen, even the HUD seemed to use the same elements. In addition, some of the sound files packaged with Armed Heroes have the voices of Runic employees included. If true, this would really be a smoking gun.In a statement, EGLS admits no wrongdoing, and insists that Runic is simply mistaken. Although, it concedes that it is removing the assets at issue in hopes of having its game returned to the App Store.It seems Runic was taking issue with virtually the entire game, so it’s not clear what would be left if EGLS removed everything that appears to have come from Torchlight. On a strictly visual level, Armed Heroes is at the very least a slavish copycat of Torchlight. At worst, it’s outright theft.EGLS has apparently prepared evidence for Apple it claims will prove it designed the game from scratch. Now that the app is out, there is no guarantee it can get back in even if EGLS somehow manages to prove its case.via Pocket Gamerlast_img read more

County manager search coming up short

first_imgClark County is moving forward with its recruitment efforts for a new county manager and might have a final pick for its top executive in January. However, county council Chair Marc Boldt said the response so far has been underwhelming and it’s possible the county might restart the process if it doesn’t yield the right candidate.“To be honest, I’m fairly disappointed,” said Boldt.In May, the county council voted unanimously to terminate County Manager Mark McCauley. In August, the council voted to authorize Interim County Manager Jim Rumpeltes to sign a $27,000 contract with Strategic Government Resources, a Texas-based recruiting and consulting firm, to find McCauley’s replacement.Boldt said the firm conducted a national search for the position and received 22 applications.“I was expecting 50, 60 or 75,” said Boldt, who noted that applications are still being accepted.Boldt said he’s not sure why the county received so few applications, but he said the advertised salary may have something to do with it. McCauley received an annual salary of $169,460 as well as a severance package. Boldt said that the county has advertised an annual salary of $160,000 to $180,000. He said that if the county wants to attract more applicants, it may have to raise the salary.“It’s kind of hard, the (applicants) don’t know the county,” he said.Boldt said that the council has picked 10 applicants to move forward with in the hiring process. He said they will be asked to respond to written questions on topics including growth management, working with the council and other local governments, as well as other issues. He also said the firm will solicit videos of each applicant talking about their experience.Boldt said the council should have a final list of five candidates, which he said will be made public, right before Christmas. The council could make a final decision in the middle of January.last_img read more

PDM says Resign Now Review Now

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 29, 2016 – The PDM today called for resignation of the Premier and Finance minister in the aftermath of the revelation of the shocking financial state of the NHIP.Party Leader, Sharlene Robinson said her concerns with the Plan date back to her stint on the Consultative Forum where she offered that the fund would not be able to generate enough money to take care of the medical bills of employers, workers and their children.The Opposition Leader who also heads the Public Accounts Committee reminded that it was in recent months that she exposed there had been no audit presented for scrutiny in the six years of the National Health Insurance Plan.Robinson said a motion was shut down in the House of Assembly when presented by her requesting full disclosure on the Health Plan and the PDM leader added that the contents of a Cabinet report of last week, where it was said the Plan’s financial woes were unknown, is unacceptable.Not only does Robinson believe the two leaders knew of the state of NHIP, but that they intentionally suppressed information from reaching public domain.The Opposition Party is calling for the announced review of the NHIP to happen, not end of January but immediately.  The PDM charged that the Premier, Rufus Ewing; Finance Minister, Washington Misick and immediate past Chairman, Mark Fukford are all unfit to run or hold office and should be rejected at the election polls.Mark Fulford last Friday declined comment; he referred Magnetic Media to the current Chairman, who is Delton Jones.

Jon Gruden wants to return to coaching Im preparing to come back

first_imgJon Gruden’s name is the mythical white whale that surfaces every time there’s a major college or NFL coaching vacancy. To this point Gruden has been content to to stay in the Monday Night Football booth and haul in north of $6 mil a year, but in an interview with the Buccaneers blog, Pewter Report, Gruden went on the record and stated he wants to make a coaching comeback.Gruden has maintained an extremely close connection to the game since he last coached in 2008. He still watches film before the crack of dawn everyday, runs his quarterback draft workouts, and attends practices, but he says he’s not just doing it for kicks. He wants to return to the sidelines.“I’ve met with several people, I won’t deny that. People, just about every year I talk about coming back to coach. I’m not in here every day at 4:30 or 4:00 in the morning watching pinball. You know? I’m preparing myself to come back. I am. Every day. I’m preparing to come back.”Gruden said he would want to return to the NFL because he couldn’t handle the limited practice time and all the NCAA rules that come with a college job. After spending time with Nick Saban and Chip Kelly after getting fired in Tampa, he concluded he would be a walking NCAA violation. He’s hardwired to be an NFL guy.Too many rules, man. I mean I like to work. I don’t like to be working 15 hours a week with players. The recruiting, Facebook, texting, e-mails – all that stuff. Yeah, I’d probably have you in real deep, deep trouble if I was your college coach.”Gruden didn’t set a timetable for his return, but just to actually hear him say, publicly, that he intends to coach again is a revelation in itself. This certainly won’t make his name appear any less in upcoming coaching rumors. He knows that. It’s hard to imagine him saying it if he wasn’t considering making the jump sooner than later.“I’m very happy with what I’m doing. I haven’t lost the itch, though. I miss the players. I won’t deny that.I don’t want to start anything, but I say the same thing to everybody. There are very few passions in my life. The man upstairs, family and football.”Jon Gruden? Returning to the N-F-L? I’m telling you what, man.Here’s oldie but goodie of Gruden being Gruden at Bucs training camp. He loves football, man.last_img read more

Opera 52 is out here is what is new

first_imgOpera 52 is out: here is what is new by Martin Brinkmann on March 22, 2018 in Opera – 23 commentsOpera Software released Opera 52 to the stable release channel on March 22, 2018. The new version of the web browser includes ad-blocking improvements, new error page animations and an option to copy multiple URLs at once.Opera 52 is already available through the browser’s automatic update system. Opera users need to select Opera Menu > About Opera to run a manual check for updates. While the update will be picked up by Opera automatically eventually, users who want to update as soon as possible can use the method to do so.Another option is to download Opera 52 Stable from the official Opera website to install it over the current installation.Opera 52: what is newOpera 52 improves the built-in ad-blocker which the company introduced back in 2016. Opera Software notes that the ad-blocker performs 16 percent faster than in Opera 51 and 44 percent faster than the native ad-blocker of the Google Chrome web browser.The comparison is not entirely fair though considering that Opera’s ad-blocker, when enabled, blocks all advertisement that sites try to load while Google Chrome’s ad-blocker becomes active only when Google flagged a site for using certain ad types and formats that impact the user experience the most.Still, a 16% improvement in performance when compared to Opera 51 improves the user experience significantly.Opera achieved the improvement by optimizing string matching algorithms.Opera 52’s ad blocker is now faster than its predecessor and outperformed the recently unveiled ad blocking contender from Google Chrome. Thanks to improved string matching algorithms, Opera’s ad blocker mechanism got increased performance gains to assist in faster page loading.Opera 52.0 includes an option to copy multiple page addresses in one operation. You may know that you can select multiple tabs in Opera by holding down the Ctrl (Mac OS Command) key on the keyboard and using the left mouse button to select tabs.The selected tabs can be moved to another window or position on the tab bar in Opera. Opera 52.0 displays the new “copy page addresses” option when you right-click on the selection. Opera copies all URLs of selected websites and services to the Clipboard.All URLs are concatenated and will be pasted as a single line of characters.

The first mock scenario otherwise known as the M

first_imgThe first mock scenario, otherwise known as the Mike Glennon mock draft, didn’t sit well with the Cardinals fanbase. That means I highly discourage Cardinals fans from reading the latest Josh Norris mock at NFL.com .This week we are moving to scenario number two, which would be to fill the Cardinals’ second-biggest need: pass rushers.I know, I know, the offensive line; they have to draft offensive linemen. They’ve needed to draft offensive linemen each of the past five seasons as well, and they have seven picks to address the offensive line, and will…I hope. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Armstrong is a big, physical safety, who would be worth bringing in to learn under the tutelage of Adrian Wilson.Armstrong may not even be drafted. In fact, we may be talking about another Vontaze Burfict-type but with a extra picks comes the ability to take some risks, and Armstrong is the type of prospect you take a risk on with an extra selection.Round 6: Bruce Taylor, ILB, Virginia TechTaylor is an undersized, yet physical inside linebacker that was making his way up draft boards in 2011 before an injury.He wasn’t as imposing but still showed flashes in 2012, and now sits in the lower range of linebacker prospects.What Taylor showed in his early 2011 film was a player that was athletic enough to make plays in the run game and could cover the middle of the field effectively in the passing game.He shows plus explosiveness when at full strength, and if he’s able to get back there, Taylor could be a strong fit as an inside linebacker next to Daryl Washington.There’s the Arizona Cardinals Mock Draft 2.0, or as I like to call it, the pass rusher mock draft.I know, I know, we want an offensive lineman — whether it’s Warmack or Fisher — on day one, so we can focus on the second round and beyond to fill other needs. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires He needs to get used to lining up under center, as well as just natural seasoning, as he has only played in 17 collegiate games. However, he is an intriguing day three quarterback prospect.Round 5: Chris Faulk, LT, Louisiana State UniversityWhile he may not possess the ideal size of today’s left tackles, Faulk is a powerfully built, yet smooth pass blocker.He’s coming off a major injury and there are plenty of question marks with not only his health but his conditioning as well.However, Faulk has the upside, if healthy, to become a franchise-type left tackle, who would also be an excellent fit in the run game.Round 6: Mychal Rivera, TE, Tennessee Rivera, like many others on this list, may not make it down this far when it’s all said and done, but he is another good receiving option, especially in the middle of the field for whoever the Cardinals peg as their starting quarterback in 2013.He isn’t overly athletic or consistent as a run blocker, but he runs good routes, finds ways to get open, and despite a lack of build, works hard to block in the run game.Round 6: Ray Ray Armstrong, SS, University of Miami This pick may raise some eyebrows, hell, some of you may wonder who this is, but the reality is Armstrong was on the fast track to being a special prospect before ruining his eligibility with an agent meaning. Warford is a powerful run-blocking offensive lineman that will be ideal in the power-heavy run scheme the Cardinals are likely to employ.Round 3: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State Slay’s stock is rising fast, meaning the internet is finally catching up to what the scouts have already seen.That means he may not even be available in the third round, but for a mock two months early this pick seems about right.Slay is deft in coverage, with a long, lanky frame, smooth hips and an ability to turn and run with his man.Slay closes exceptionally well and is good in 50-50 situations.Adding Slay to a young defensive backfield could be a solid coup for the Cardinals at the end of day two, and he would fit well across from Patrick Peterson, as he is used to playing across from star defensive backs.Round 4: Matt Scott, QB, ArizonaScott isn’t of the same pedigree as other quarterbacks that might be available in the fourth round like a Landry Jones, but his upside is better, and he has the movement skills to be effective in-and-out of the pocket that Arians likes in his passers.Scott possesses a good feel inside the pocket, shows good zip on his throws and has good accuracy on both intermediate throws and deep balls. Comments   Share   center_img Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Note: The draft order was taken from information provided by dailynorseman.com, who noted that the Cardinals will receive the Minnesota Vikings sixth-round selection and another sixth-round selection from the Vikings by way of the Tennessee Titans (so the 8th and 21st picks in Round 6).Round 1: Barkevious Mingo, OLB, Louisiana St University The Cardinals have a lot of pieces in place on the defensive side of the ball, but they lack a player that can create consistent pressure as a pass rusher.Mingo didn’t show up on the stat sheet the way casual fans would like, but he creates pressure consistently, and he has upside that needs to be harnessed and coached up.Mingo moving to a pass-rushing OLB position seems natural to me, he has the build, quickness and agility to play the position, and he wouldn’t have to add much more, if any, weight.Round 2: Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky I will continue to mock Warford to the Cardinals in the second round in any mock draft that doesn’t have them taking an offensive lineman in the first round. He’s the best guard prospect that will be available on day two, and he fits into the Arians mold of what he wants in offensive line talent. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The reality is the Cardinals may not have an opportunity to take the offensive tackle of their choice, and as much as I would like to see Chance Warmack at No. 7 in the first round, that may not be a viable option…til next week’s mock draft.last_img read more

Day after focus on new alliances ahead of presidential runoff

first_imgThe day after the first round of the presidential elections kicked off, setting the tone for behind-the-scenes meetings, negotiations and likely some hard bargaining as each candidate from the two camps vies for the top seat in government.President Nicos Anastasiades and Akel-backed independent Stavros Malas were voted through to the second round with a marginal difference – the incumbent with around 35 per cent and the later with around 30 per cent.The difference in their speeches however put them miles apart.While Malas brushed off questions about who he might be making alliances with diplomatically saying he would wait for the next day and enjoy spending some time with his family, Anastasiades was keen to stress that the real work begins now.Fears his campaign team were concerned about the marginal difference between himself and his opponent were evident in his speech that were compounded with earlier concerns that supporters might not vote thinking they had the victory in the bag.Anastasiades encouraged people to head to the polls because “without a positive vote there is no positive result.“Too many words mean nothing. As of tomorrow morning, we have work to do. We have to expand our allegiance.”That was his second speech during the night – in less than an hour – that he highlighted the door was open for negotiations with anyone and spoke of a government of “broad acceptance”, reiterating that this was the last time he would be running for office.The burning question remains as to whether he will he get into bed with far-right Elam?Across Cyprus, Elam’s leader Christos Christou garnered 5.65 per cent of the votes after being elected to parliament for the first time in 2016  with two seats.He received more support than Citizens’ Alliance leader Giorgos Lillikas who has been in the political spotlight far longer and is running for a second time, with dwindling support arriving at just over two per cent of votes.During the big debate last week before the first round of votes, Christou, asked who he would support in the second round said Elam would send a questionnaire to the two candidates and would evaluate the answers before making a decision – whether it be positive, negative or leaving it up to the party members free will.Malas received a lot of support for categorically stating he would be doing no such thing no matter what the circumstances were. He was the only candidate to do so.Stavros MalasTo complicate matters, during Anastasiades’ speech at the presidential palace, he highlighted that to effect change, one must have allegiances and a majority support in parliament.“The priority is the good of the country.”His spokeswoman Annita Demetriou speaking to Cybc after the results were out, said the president never ruled out any dialogue with anyone or filling in a questionnaire. Doing so would not mean he was ‘discounting’ his values.All parties -winners and losers – said meetings would begin on Monday internally, before decisions were made though it is certain a lot of behind the scenes negotiations are currently taking place.Edek, the Green Party and Solidarity Movement has all pledged their allegiance to Diko leader Nicolas Papadopoulos. In her first statements after the result however, Eleni Theocharous, Solidarity Movement’s leader when asked if she would follow Papadopoulos’ decision on how to proceed said her party was independent with its own values.A share of her party had voted for Anastasiades as had several Diko ‘dissidents’ lead by Marios Garoyian, former Diko leader.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
