It is developing hydrogen bunkering services optimized for the growing hydrogen bunker market in Norway.“Hydrogen as marine fuel is in an early phase, and … we still have a way to go with regards to developing suitable concepts, technical solutions, regulations and operational requirements,” Are Magnussen, Partner and project manager at Cryo Shipping, explained.The company said it is cooperating with major players in the hydrogen industry, initially serving Norwegian shipowners who are taking early positions as consumers of fully renewable marine fuels.As the maritime industry is slowly moving towards a clean and renewable future, Cryo Shipping said it “aims to take the lead in the future green energy development”.The company also strives to accelerate the development of LNG as a future marine fuel. Earlier this month, Cryo Shipping conducted its first LNG bunkering operation in Sweden with the cement carrier Greenland being supplied with this green fuel.Read more:Will Hydrogen Power Shipping’s Shift to Renewables?

BRUSSELS — Prime Minister Theresa May is trying to persuade European Union leaders to delay Brexit by up to three months, just eight days before Britain is scheduled to leave the bloc.May will meet the 27 national other EU leaders in Brussels on Thursday, a day after she requested an extension until June 30.European Council chief Donald Tusk says a short delay may be possible, but only if Britain’s Parliament approves May’s divorce deal with the bloc before the scheduled March 29 departure date.U.K. lawmakers have already rejected the deal twice. May says they face a “final choice” between her deal, a no-deal departure that could hammer the economy, and cancelling Brexit.But May angered many legislators with a televised speech Wednesday blaming Parliament for the Brexit impasse.The Associated Press
A 47-year-old moulavi, an Islamic preacher, was arrested at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) on charges of using social media platforms to air extremist views, the police said on Sunday.The suspect, a resident of Vavuniya, was arrested on Saturday morning by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) upon his arrival from Mecca after performing Hajj.
“Inaction could see this turn into a crisis. That is why joint reflection is in order on how the current impasse came about and ways to overcome it,” Robert Serry, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, warned the Security Council in a briefing on the current “political stalemate” that has endangered what many see as perhaps the last chance to achieve the long-sought two-State solution. He said that nine months since the launch of United States-brokered negotiations on the previously agreed objective of achieving a comprehensive settlement on all core issues by 29 April, “efforts have faltered given the inability of the parties to bridge the gaps on their substantive positions or even accept, with reservations, a US framework that would attempt to do just that.” Summing up the events of the past two months, Mr. Serry said that on 28 March, Israel postponed its decision to follow through with the release of the fourth and last tranche of 30 pre-Oslo prisoners. On 1 April, interpreting this as a breach of the quiet understanding of a diplomatic truce in return for the release of the prisoners, the Palestinians proceeded with submitting accession instruments to 15 international treaties and conventions.“The announcement of 708 reissued tenders for settlement units in Gilo on the same day added to the Palestinian conviction that they had no other choice. Nevertheless, President Mahmoud Abbas reiterated his commitment to negotiations, Mr. Serry said, adding that despite these events, the negotiators continued to meet in an effort to find a way out of the impasse. In a subsequent development, Palestinians reached a unity agreement on 23 April stipulating, among other things, that a National Consensus Government would be formed within five weeks and elections held no later than six months after the formation of this Government. “Israel [then] cancelled a meeting scheduled between the Israeli and Palestinian negotiators and after an emergency cabinet meeting on 24 April, took the decision to suspend the talks,” he said.The political stalemate poses great risks to the prospects of a two-State solution and “will also not be without impact…on the ground,” he continued, noting that 2013 had seen the highest number of Palestinian fatalities in the West Bank since 2009. Condemning the “appalling” violence, he noted two particularly disturbing instances: the killing of an Israeli man and the injury of two others, including a child, in an attack near Hebron on 14 April, during Passover; and the shooting by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) of a14-year-old Palestinian boy crossing the Barrier on 19 March, which resulted in his death.Mr. Serry said the rise in violence in the West Bank was reflected by the following trends, among others: increased clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinians, particularly in and around refugee camps; Palestinian stone and Molotov cocktail throwing resulting in some injuries and material damage; and settler attacks against Palestinians and their property in spite of some Israeli efforts to crack down on so-called “Price Tag” attacks which have also targeted Israeli security forces. “Settlement activity also continued,” he said, adding that the situation in East Jerusalem remains worrisome as tensions and clashes in the Old City continued, including during the holiday period. “All of this points to the fact that the situation on the ground is serious and likely to further deteriorate if not addressed. And we must not forget Gaza, where practical steps are urgently needed to improve the humanitarian and security situation.”Against this troubling backdrop, Mr. Serry said: “Difficult choices are now required of the parties. They should realize that not making a choice is the most detrimental choice of all – namely to accept that we are going down the path of a one-State reality on the ground. This is a time for the parties to reflect whether they wish to live up to their stated commitment to the two-State solution, or whether they will by default let it slip further away.”First and foremost, he urged the parties to refrain from steps which will render futile any efforts to find a way back to negotiations and salvage the two-State solution. “Both sides have to convince each other anew they are partners for peace. If Israel is serious about the two-State solution, it must recognize the negative impact of continued illegal settlement activity. Palestinians in turn should be reflective of their actions in international fora.”Moreover, he said that the international community and the region should also reassess its role if they remain convinced of the importance of the two-State solution, and ask what the world can do to persuade the parties to make the right choice. “This can no longer be ‘business as usual.’ Unrealistic and prescriptive timelines may be counterproductive, as can rushing the parties back to the table without having the necessary framework in place,” he said, expressing his belief that the “current moment of reflection” must be devoted to discussion on a substantive basis for an early resumption of talks, building on the US effort of the past nine months and relying on continued US engagement.
Reading a statement at Headquarters in New York, UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric told reporters that Mr. Ban and Mr. Kerry had announced that the UN Representative in Jerusalem, Special Coordinator Robert Serry, has received assurances that “all parties have agreed to an unconditional humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.”“This humanitarian ceasefire will commence at 8 am local time on Friday, August 1, 2014. It will last for a period of 72 hours unless extended. During this time, the forces on the ground will remain in place,” said Mr. Dujarric.“We urge all parties to act with restraint until this humanitarian ceasefire begins, and to fully abide by their commitments during the ceasefire.”The spokesperson went on to say that the pause is critical to giving innocent civilians a much-needed reprieve from violence. During this period, civilians in Gaza will receive urgently needed humanitarian relief, and have the opportunity to carry out vital functions, including burying the dead, taking care of the injured, and restocking food supplies. Overdue repairs on essential water and energy infrastructure could also continue during this period.“Israeli and Palestinian delegations will immediately be going to Cairo for negotiations with the Government of Egypt, at the invitation of Egypt, aimed at reaching a durable ceasefire,” he said, adding that the parties will be able to raise all issues of concern in these negotiations.“We thank key regional stakeholders for their vital support of this process, and count on a continued collaborative international effort to assist Egypt and the parties reach a durable ceasefire as soon as possible,” Mr. Dujarric added.News of the ceasefire comes as UN relief officials urged the parties to protect civilians amid the ongoing conflict, which has resulted in thousands of casualties and caused widespread displacement and destruction.“The reality of Gaza today is that no place is safe,” Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos said in her briefing to the Security Council on the latest situation. “We have all watched in horror the desperation of children, of civilians as they have come under attack,” she added, speaking via videoconference from Trinidad and Tobago. “Under international humanitarian law, the Government of Israel, Hamas and other militant groups must distinguish between military objectives and civilian objects and between combatants and civilians. They must also avoid harming civilians or civilian objects, and protect them from the effects of military operations.” Nearly four weeks of conflict have left more than 1,300 Palestinians dead and 6,000 injured, Ms. Amos reported. Over 80 per cent of those killed have been civilians; 251 children. Israel has faced rocket fire, and the hostilities have resulted in the deaths of 3 civilians and 56 soldiers, with dozens injured. She noted that the current crisis in Gaza takes place against the backdrop of decades of instability, poverty and vulnerability resulting from repeated outbreaks of hostilities and the ongoing blockade on land, air and sea. Over 80 per cent of Gaza’s population of 1.8 million – more than half of them children under the age of 18 – were already dependent on humanitarian aid before the outbreak of hostilities. Up to 440,000 people in Gaza are now displaced, almost 24 per cent of the population. Over 240,000 are being hosted in schools run by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), while others are seeking refuge wherever they can; in government buildings, hospital grounds or with families and friends. “People flee to areas they believe are safe from attack. But these areas are becoming harder to find,” said Ms. Amos, who is also UN Emergency Relief Coordinator. “So, they come to United Nations facilities for protection when their homes and neighbourhoods come under fire – more than 240,000 people. But over 103 UN facilities have come under attack including an UNWRA school hosting over 3,300 displaced yesterday,” she stated. “The parties to the conflict have an obligation – an absolute obligation – to protect civilians from direct or indiscriminate attacks. Under international law, United Nations operations, personnel and premises, must remain inviolable, and parties to the conflict should protect humanitarian workers. There can be no justification for failing to do so.” Ms. Amos said the relief effort is “stretched,” with ongoing fighting and insecurity hampering the ability of UN agencies to move around and making it difficult to sustain the delivery of assistance to people in need. “Until a longer-term ceasefire is agreed, we need more humanitarian pauses to enable us to reach those in need. Pauses must be daily, predictable, and adequate in length so that humanitarian staff can dispatch relief to those in need, rescue the injured, recover the dead and allow civilians some reprieve so that they can restock and resupply their homes. “We urgently need the Government of Israel, Hamas and other militant groups to comply with their international legal obligations, including international humanitarian and human rights law. Each party must be held accountable to international standards; not the standards of the other party,” Ms. Amos added. Briefing the Council from Gaza City, UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl said the most difficult challenge facing the Agency today is the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians it is currently hosting. “We are doing everything possible to provide the displaced with minimum needs – food, mattresses and blankets – but we are now into the fourth week of mass displacement in facilities unequipped to shelter large numbers for such a duration,” he told the Council via teleconference. “Conditions are increasingly dire in the shelters,” he continued. “There is no water for personal hygiene, very few showers and latrines are totally inadequate. Disease outbreak is beginning, with skin infections, scabies and others. There are thousands of pregnant women in our schools, deliveries are precarious and we are sheltering newborns in these appalling conditions. Our ability to mitigate this situation is of course heavily restricted by ongoing hostilities.” Stating that the current reality on the ground is not sustainable, Mr. Krähenbühl renewed his call for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to be agreed by the parties.
The United Nations today expressed concern about the latest developments in Venezuela, calling on the Government and the opposition to address the country’s challenges for the benefit of the people.“We call on the Government of Venezuela and the opposition to engage sincerely to reactivate dialogue efforts,” according to a statement attributable to UN spokesman Stéphane Dujarric. Specifically, he noted dialogue around critical issues that are already agreed to be placed on the agenda, namely the balance of power among branches of the State, the electoral calendar, human rights, truth and justice and the socioeconomic situation.Mr. Dujarric called for “concrete gestures” to reduce polarisation and to create the necessary conditions to address the country’s challenges.
The family of a teenager fatally stabbed by his friend have launched a legal challenge against the “unduly lenient” sentence he received.Yousef Makki, 17, died after being knifed in the heart in Hale Barns, Greater Manchester, on March 2.The teenager who dealt the fatal blow, referred to as Boy A for legal reasons, admitted perverting the course of justice and possession of a knife, and was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter.He was handed a 16-month detention and training order and will spend half of that period in custody.Another 17-year-old, known as Boy B, also admitted possessing a knife and was given a four-month detention and training order. He will also serve half of that sentence in custody.Yousef’s family is now appealing to the Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox QC, for the “unduly lenient” sentences to be increased.They wrote in legal submissions: “Public concern at the increase in knife crime must be reflected in the sentences imposed.”A sentence of 16-months did not reflect the overall criminality involving Boy A.”So far as Boy B is concerned, for substantially the same reasons as identified in relation to Boy A, the sentence imposed was unduly lenient.”Yousef’s sister Jade added: “We believe that these sentences do not send the right message to society. Knife crime is at its highest at the moment and we need tougher sentencing.” On the day of the murder, Boy A lied to police that Yousef had been stabbed by someone who fled the scene by car. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. This meant he was treated as a witness rather than a suspect and wasted valuable police resources, crown court judge Mr Justice Simon Bryan QC previously said.During sentencing, the judge said Boy A “found knives cool”, videoed himself with them and listened to drill music and gangster rap which “glorified” the carrying and use of blades.Last month a disturbing video emerged showing Boy A making stabbing gestures as drill music referring to “blades” and “shanks” – slang for “knives” – plays in the background.The footage, seen by The Telegraph, is believed to have been filmed in a toilet cubicle at Manchester Crown Court during the trial while the teenager was on bail.The video ended up being sent to Yousef’s family, who then sent it to the judge presiding over the case.Detectives are investigating if the person who sent it to the family have committed an offence under the Malicious Communications Act.Yousef, who had dreamed of becoming a heart surgeon, had won a scholarship to the prestigious Manchester Grammar School before his death.

Last weekend the advertisement went out for the first four of the eight houses, the tenders are supposed to be open this week so more than likely the contract would be awarded soon” he noted.In an interview with the DPI, Samuels noted that along with the completed twelve houses, the installation of its new generator in 2017 and prospective solar panels in 2018, the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) also plans to increase the number of hours during which electricity is provided on the island facility.This, Samuels said, will not only make the officers’ stay a more comfortable one, but will also aid its electronic surveillance security system and increase the opportunities for its skills training programme.“It will increase our ability to be able to offer skill training to prisoners because most skill training requires power tools and it restricted the capacity of the prison to offer training in carpentry and other such areas that would require the use of power tools when power was not adequately available. We are also looking at the installation of solar panels which will also complement the generators especially for our CCTV expansion which will be part of our 2018 project as well.”Midair view of the area designated for the prison’s constructionAccording to Samuels, these upgrades are in keeping with the budget request of the GPS and the recommendations from the Commission of Inquiry (CoI).In the 2018 National Budget, the sum of $1.5 billion has been allocated to the GPS, a sizeable amount of which will go towards continuing the expansion of the prison with construction of a new brick wing to house an additional 400 inmates. The penitentiary currently houses 452.
THE MEDICAL DEVICES and drugs company Abbott is to cut 200 jobs from a based in Co Tipperary.The jobs will be cut through a round of voluntary redundancies from Abbott’s facility in Clonmel.About 1,400 people are employed at the facility, which manufactures vascular products.The company said it was entering a “30-day consultation period” with employees to discuss how the redundancies could be managed.It said the adjustments were part of a global programme “to meet the evolving needs of the business and to remain competitive in a challenging global environment”.In addition to the 200 staff, “a few dozen” contractor positions will be dropped at the end of March when current contracts expire.Abbott said the Clonmel site remained important to its global manufacturing network.“Going forward, the Clonmel site will focus primarily on the manufacture of newer, advanced medical devices that incorporate a drug and device combination,” it said, saying capital investment would be made later this year to affirm the plant’s futur.“We regret the impact of this adjustment on our employees in Clonmel and the wider community, and our focus is on supporting our impacted employees. Favourable redundancy terms and outplacement services will be provided to affected employees,” it said.Clonmel-based MEP Phil Prendergast said the announcement was “very distressing news for the workforce, their families, and the wider community”.“The company must give all workers in that situation the full picture in terms of its intentions and their entitlements as soon as possible,” she said.Local TD Tom Hayes, of Fine Gael, said job losses at any time were tough but redundancies at this particular time were particularly tough.“Unfortunately, Clonmel appears to have taken the brunt of Abbott’s restructuring plan as it is the only one of the eleven Abbott locations in Ireland to be impacted by this decision,” he said.“My thoughts are with the staff at this difficult time.”Four months ago the company said it was cutting about 180 jobs from a plant in Ballytivnan, Co Sligo, with the jobs to be lost throughout this year.Read: 180 jobs to go at Abbott in Sligo in unexpected cut

MIAMI (WSVN) – Two women are taking legal action against the Florida Department of Transportation and DBi Services for what they call a highway hazard.Cynthia Fleischmann and Catherine Milagros Perez Garcia are suing the FDOT and DBi Services after they were struck while riding their motorcycles in 2015 by a driver who illegally entered the express lanes on Interstate 95.They both had to go to the hospital where doctors had to amputate one of their legs.The women said roadway officials should do more to keep South Florida drivers safe.“The orange pins on the highway,” said Fleischmann, accident victim, “and it’s an invitation for cars to come through them.”Perez Garcia expressed how traumatic the incident was. “It haunts me every time I see or hear 95,” she said.The women claim officials failed to properly separate the general purpose lanes from the express lanes, which poses a dangerous risk for all drivers.
There are two types of people on this planet: Those who hv watched #Kabali & those who hven’t. Period.â€” MRV (@MRVChennai) July 23, 2016 “Kabali” had a mixed effect on share prices of select film-related companies listed on the stock exchanges on Friday, the day the Rajinikanth-starrer film was released worldwide at more than 4,500 screens simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.Eros International Media (up 6.08 percent at Rs. 234.80) rode on the “Kabali” box office success, but shares of PVR (down 2.57 percent to Rs. 1,064.20), Inox (down 1.74 percent to Rs. 248.20) and Balaji Telefilms (down 3.01 percent to Rs.91.75) could not encash the film’s popularity even as the S&P BSE Sensex gained 93 points on what was flatteringly described as “Kabali Day”. Balaji Telefilms is the producer of “Great Grand Masti,” which put up an average show at the box office, reckon trade analysts, in the context of Salman Khan’s “Sultan” released a week earlier, on July 5. Eros also minted money at the box office, with its “Housefull 3″ earning Rs. 100 crore (about $15 million) in its opening weekend, according to a regulatory filing by the company to the BSE.”Kabali” sent cash registers ringing even at its select screening overseas, not to talk of its box office collection on its opening day.”Kabali” collected $2 million from its premiere shows in North America (U.S. and Canada), according to distribution company CineGalaxy Inc. The multi-lingual blockbuster was released in over 400 screens in the two countries.”It is easily the best opening for an Indian film from premiere shows in North America. The film has collected $2 million from the premiere shows and it includes both the Tamil and Telugu version of ‘Kabali’,” Sanjay Dusari, the Co-Founder of CineGalaxy Inc, told IANS.It’s Rajini and his popularity among fans that is driving box office collections. “To collect $2 million from premieres is no easy feat and it was possible because of the excellent pre-release buzz and Rajinikanth’s association with the project,” trade analyst Trinath told the news agency.Another trade analyst Taran Adarsh also spoke about “Kabali” doing roaring business in its premiere screening. #Kabali [Tamil+Telugu] sets new benchmarks in preview shows in USA-Canada… Takes an EPIC start on Thu: $ 1,925,379 [â‚¹ 12.93 cr].

.A message board at the city’s Manika Miah Avenue reads: “Restricted for movement of private vehicles”.The restriction is applicable only for a day, the first Friday of a month, according to a decision announced by the road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader.The decision was taken, on 22 September, the world car-free day, to keep the city’s widest road in front of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban (parliament house) free from movement of private vehicles.However, since the decision was taken, never was the road free from private vehicles — not on 6 October, the first Friday and again on 3 November.It was observed in the morning on Friday that private cars were moving and the police took no step to stop them.The onduty police officer there, Md Alamgir Hossain, said many people are not aware of the car-free day. “Once there will be enough publicity, the police will stop cars,” he added.Dhaka Transport Coordination Authority, supported by 36 organisations, took the decision as part of global campaign to reduce pollution.
Millisecond pulsars spin rapidly, at hundreds of times per second. Astronomers searching for new MSPs focus their observations on globular clusters (GCs), as such gravitationally bound collections of stars are ideal factories for the formation of a large variety of astronomical objects, including pulsars. So far, 146 MSPs were detected in 28 globular clusters, but it is believed that a very large population of several thousand millisecond pulsars is still to be uncovered.Now, a team of scientists led by Mario Cadelano of the University of Bologna, Italy, has replenished the list of known MSPs in GCs by finding three new objects of this type in the Terzan 5 globular cluster. Residing in the bulge of the Milky Way galaxy, Terzan 5 is most likely a heavily obscured globular cluster. However some studies have found that it is probably not a genuine GC, but could be a pristine remnant of a building block of the galactic bulge. All in all, Terzan 5 is perceived by astronomers as a prolific MSP factory as previous observations have detected 34 such pulsars in this cluster.Cadelano’s team has analyzed the archival observational data of Terzan 5 obtained by the 100-m Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in Green Bank, West Virginia, for over five years—between August 2010 and October 2015. As a result, they identified three previously unknown MSPs in the inner regions of this cluster, designated: J1748−2446aj, J1748−2446ak and J1748−2446al.”We report on the discovery of three new millisecond pulsars (namely J1748−2446aj, J1748−2446ak and J1748−2446al) in the inner regions of the dense stellar system Terzan 5. These pulsars have been discovered thanks to a method, alternative to the classical search routines, that exploited the large set of archival observations of Terzan 5 acquired with the Green Bank Telescope over 5 years (from 2010 to 2015),” the astronomers wrote in the paper.According to the research, J1748−2446aj, J1748−2446ak and J1748−2446al are isolated MSPs with spin periods of 2.96, 1.89 and 5.95 milliseconds. Therefore, J1748−2446ak turns out to be the fourth fastest MSP in Terzan 5 and the fifth fastest among all the known pulsars in globular clusters.Moreover, the researchers estimated the intrinsic spin-down rates for J1748−2446aj and J1748−2446ak, which are consistent with those typically measured for MSPs in globular clusters. In general, the new discovery increases the number of known MSPs in Terzan 5 to 37, which now hosts one-fourth of the entire pulsar population detected so far in globular clusters. More information: Discovery of three new millisecond pulsars in Terzan 5, arXiv:1801.09929 [astro-ph.HE] arxiv.org/abs/1801.09929AbstractWe report on the discovery of three new millisecond pulsars (namely J1748-2446aj, J1748-2446ak and J1748-2446al) in the inner regions of the dense stellar system Terzan 5. These pulsars have been discovered thanks to a method, alternative to the classical search routines, that exploited the large set of archival observations of Terzan 5 acquired with the Green Bank Telescope over 5 years (from 2010 to 2015). This technique allowed the analysis of stacked power spectra obtained by combining ~206 hours of observation. J1748-2446aj has a spin period of ~2.96 ms, J1748-2446ak of ~1.89 ms (thus it is the fourth fastest pulsar in the cluster) and J1748-2446al of ~5.95 ms. All the three millisecond pulsars are isolated and currently we have timing solutions only for J1748-2446aj and J1748-2446ak. For these two systems, we evaluated the contribution to the measured spin-down rate of the acceleration due to the cluster potential field, thus estimating the intrinsic spin-down rates, which are in agreement with those typically measured for millisecond pulsars in globular clusters. Our results increase to 37 the number of pulsars known in Terzan 5, which now hosts 25% of the entire pulsar population identified, so far, in globular clusters.

TEMPE, Ariz. — A common story throughout the second half of the Arizona Cardinals’ 2013 season was that quarterback Carson Palmer was finally familiar with the offense, and thus playing at a higher level. It was not an outlandish idea, especially given that Palmer threw 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in the team’s first eight games and 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions over the final eight. Palmer completed 61.3 percent of his passes in the first eight games and 65.3 percent over the last eight. His QB rating was 72.4 in the first half and 95.3 in the second. Speaking of the team as a whole, Arians said the difference in year two is very substantial.“Year Two, when you’re watching yourself do it on tape instead of watching the Colts or the Steelers do it on tape, it’s a whole lot easier to transform that onto the practice field,” he said. “The installation process is so much easier. The route concepts, the steps, footwork, all the little things, the minor details, they’re all in there now.”Last offseason, Arians and his staff spent much of the time learning their players while the players were learning their schemes. That’s no longer the case, and that understanding makes heading into the offseason that much easier, even if closing the book on this season is a tough pill to swallow.“It’s awesome, I can’t wait,” Palmer said. “It’s a shame it’s over.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments Share Top Stories In short, Palmer looked like a completely different quarterback, and his progression helped the Cardinals to a surprising 10-6 record. “I think the guys I’ve been with have gone from as many as 20 (interceptions) down to eight,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “You’re still going to get a tipped ball here or there or a guy is going to make a play on a ball, but the huge number of interceptions should go away.”The hope — the expectation, really — is that the quarterback will take another step forward as he heads into his second offseason with the team. Monday, as the players cleaned out their lockers at the Tempe training facility, Palmer said he’s looking forward to the team’s future and his part in it.“I can’t wait,” Palmer said. “OTAs, all the stuff in the spring and just to add to foundation and see where we can go with this offense and see what we can add, that’s also exciting.”It was no secret that coach Bruce Arians’ offense took time to learn, and probably a little more than anyone would have hoped. However, the coach noted that it usually takes about half a season for players to really get it, but once they do, things really take off.

by The Associated Press Posted Apr 8, 2019 10:09 am PDT Court: State must pay legal fees over ‘In Cold Blood’ notes AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WICHITA, Kan. — Kansas must pay legal feels arising from its efforts to stop publication of notebooks kept by the lead investigator into the murders of a Kansas family chronicled in Truman Capote’s book “In Cold Blood.”The Kansas Court of Appeals ruled last week that the state must pay more than $168,000 to attorneys representing the investigator’s son and a literary memorabilia dealer in Seattle, KCUR reported .The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt sued in 2012 to prevent the publication or selling of notes from Harold Nye, who led the KBI’s investigation into the killings of the Herb Clutter family in 1959 in Holcomb, Kansas. Capote’s book drew international attention to the murders.The state argued that Nye’s material belonged to Kansas because he was a state employee. Kansas officials also argued that the Clutter family’s privacy concerns justified blocking their release.Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks in 2012 granted the state’s request for a temporary order blocking the sale or publication of the notebooks. But he reversed himself in 2014 , saying the notes’ publication or sale were protected by the First Amendment and the Kansas Constitution. He also ordered the state to pay legal fees to Nye’s son, Ronald, and Gary McAvoy, an author and literary memorabilia dealer.McAvoy said during the litigation, the state argued that Harold Nye “was a liar and thief . In that process, they said many nasty things about him that were completely untrue in order to swing the court in their favour.”“For me, it’s not about the money,” McAvoy said in a phone interview. “It’s the righting of an injustice. They dragged Harold Nye’s good name through the mud in the process. Not only was it wrong and unfair, it was almost like win-at-any-cost on their part.”A spokesman for the Kansas Attorney General’s office declined to comment on the appeals court ruling.Harold Nye kept the case files at his home. Hendricks ruled in 2014 that Ronald Nye’s constitutional right to publish the material outweighed the government’s desire to keep its investigative records confidential. Harold Nye worked for the Kansas bureau from 1955 until his retirement in 1975; he was its director from 1969 to 1971.McAvoy used the notebooks to write a book on the Clutter killings. “And Every World Is True,” which was published recently and contains a forward and material from Ronald Nye.Herb Clutter, his wife and two of their four children were bound and gagged and shot to death at their farm in near Holcomb. The killers, Richard Hickock and Perry Smith, were arrested six weeks after the murders and eventually executed.The Associated Press
