New Delhi/Kochi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said he welcomed “constructive criticism” and there should be enough space in public life for “differing streams” to listen to each other’s point of view.There should be continuous dialogue in society irrespective of differing views, the Prime Minister asserted. People with differing views do not have to agree on everything but there must be “enough civility in public life for differing streams to be able to hear each other’s point of view…,” he said.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar, BJP’s Meenakshi Lekhi, Congress’ Shashi Tharoor, CPI general secretary D Raja, CPM’s Mohammed Salim and TMC’s Mohua Moitra were among those present at the event.

It is usually believed that public figures prefer to be on forums whose thought process matches with the person’s own world view because there is a lot of comfort in being among such people, he said. “Of course, I also cherish being among such surroundings but, at the same time, I believe there must be a constant and continuous dialogue between individuals and organisations irrespective of one’s thought process,” he said. The organisers, Modi pointed out, had selected ‘New India’ as the theme of the conclave. “Critics will ask you — are you also speaking the language of Modi ji now? I hope you have your answers ready for that,” the prime minister said. With agency inputs
Quebecers less exposed to Holocaust than other Canadians poll findsQuebecers less exposed to Holocaust than other Canadians poll finds
October 17, 2019October 17, 2019
MONTREAL — A new poll suggests that Quebecers are significantly less likely than other Canadians to have learned about the Holocaust in school or read a book about the Second World War genocide.About 40 per cent of respondents across Canada said they did not learn in school that roughly six-million European Jews were murdered by the Nazis during the Second World War, while more than 53 per cent of Quebecers said so.More than 61 per cent of Quebecers polled said they’d never read a book about the Holocaust, compared to the Canadian average of 41 per cent.And 36 per cent of respondents from Quebec said they had never had contact with a Jewish person. The Canadian average was 18 per cent.Leger surveyed 1,560 Canadians over the age of 18, between June 7-11, 2019, in the poll commissioned by Jack Jedwab, president of the Association for Canadian Studies.In an interview Saturday, the historian said he was surprised to learn the gap between Quebec and the rest of the country was so high.“These are very surprising gaps — which is telling,” Jedwab said adding that he’s studied the Quebec history curriculum and the province’s schools don’t teach the Second World War in great detail.“And if you’re not going to deal with WW2, probably the end result is that you won’t learn a lot about the Holocaust because they are connected,” he said.Other than Quebecers, the Canadians least likely to have learned about the Holocaust in school were from Ontario and Atlantic Canada, both at 31 per cent.About 38 per cent of respondents from Manitoba and Saskatchewan, who were grouped together in the survey, said they had never read a book about the Holocaust, second only to Quebec.Ontarian respondents were the most likely Canadians to know someone who is Jewish — only 12 per cent of them said they have “never” had contact with a Jew.The survey results should be a wake-up call to Quebec’s minister of education, Jedwab said. Learning about the genocide of the Jews empowers people to fight discrimination and strengthens one’s sense of tolerance, he added.According to B’nai Brith Canada, anti-Semitic incidents in Quebec increased from 474 in 2017 to 709 in 2018, a jump of 50 per cent. Anti-Semitic incidents rose roughly 17 per cent between 2017 and 2018 across Canada.The 2,041 hate acts against Jews in 2018 was the first time since 1982 that there have been more than 2,000 such incidents in the country over a 12-month period, B’nai Brith Canada noted in its April report. The Jewish advocacy group also said in its most recent audit that the year 2018 “was characterized by a dramatic increase in anti-Semitic incidents worldwide.”A September 2018 survey that polled 1,100 Canadians, conducted by New York City-based Schoen Consulting, indicated 22 per cent of respondents between 18 and 34 years old were unaware or unsure if they had even heard of the Holocaust.In response to the rise of anti-Semitic acts in Canada and the decline of Holocaust awareness across the country, a foundation that educates young people about genocide is partnering with the Quebec government to offer high school teachers a study guide on genocide.Heidi Berger, head of The Foundation for Genocide Education, told The Canadian Press in April that beginning in the fall, a selection of high schools across Quebec will be offered the universal teaching guide as part of a pilot project. Her goal is to have the guidebook in every public and private high school across the province by 2020.Giuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Press
Moroccans Protest Water Turning off on Eid al-AdhaMoroccans Protest Water Turning off on Eid al-Adha
October 12, 2019October 12, 2019
Rabat- Several Moroccan towns had their water cut off on Eid al-Adha and protested at water distribution offices.Residents of several towns woke up on August 22, the Eid al-Adha holiday, to find that their water had been cut off without prior notice from their water supplier.The affected towns included Tinjdad in the eastern Draa-Tafilalet region, Ait Milk in the southern Souss-Massa region, Taounate in the northern Rif Mountains, and Ksar el-Kebir in northwest Morocco. On any other day, Moroccans in many regions of the country are obliged to patiently wait when the tap goes dry.However, on Eid al-Adha (the festival of sacrifice), when people use more water than usual to clean up after the sacrifice, the lack of water becomes a crisis to many.In rural areas or villages people rely on wells when tap water is cut off, however in cities there are no wells on which to fall back. Protests on Eid al-AdhaEid al-Adha is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide, on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah (the month of pilgrimage) in which the Hajj pilgrimage takes place.On Eid, families gather together to share their joy after performing the morning Eid prayers and making the sacrifice by slaughtering a sheep or goat.Demonstrating both anger and frustration for not being able to enjoy Eid to the fullest extent, dozens of residents in Taounate rallied in protest on Wednesday in front of the office responsible for water distribution, reported Moroccan newspaper Akhbar Al Yaoum.The residents complained about authorities’ lack of action to fix the problem, especially since the region is home to a large reservoir dam, Al Wahda Dam.Ksar el-Kebir residents protested the lack of water in their own way by hanging sheepskins on the gate of the water distributor in the region, Radeel.In the Draa-Tafilalet region, water is finally back on Thursday, the second day of Eid.

Are you enjoying our weather? You better be, because it just doesn’t get any nicer here in the Pacific Northwest.With a rather quiet weather pattern, I would usually say there just isn’t much to write home about weatherwise, but I think a mention of the very placid weather conditions we have had late summer into early autumn meets the honorable-mention category.More of the same continues into the weekend, and still no rain on the horizon. Some longer-range models try bringing a change in the pattern now being advertised later next week, but my confidence at this point is very low. I would guess little, if any, rain for the first full week of October! As we enter into October weather, it is best to take the forecast a day or two at a time due to possible sudden changes in the pattern.With new fires in the eastern Gorge and a slight drift of east wind today, we may see more haze and smoke in our skies. It probably won’t be as bad as last week, and a shift in the winds to northwest Friday and Saturday will push any smoke away.I certainly won’t be doing any rain dances or such, as I really like the change of seasons arriving on a dry note. There will be plenty of time for October skies with rain showers and blustery winds.This does look like we will end up September as one of the driest in the past 20 years or so. It is the driest July through September time period at Portland International Airport, with only a quarter inch of rain. Maybe we should start a rain pool and guess when the fall rains will begin?

MIAMI (WSVN) – Two Miami teens who were caught on surveillance video being ambushed by three robbers in broad daylight refused to go down without a fight.The street scuffle went down while the victims were walking home from school in the area of Northwest Ninth Street and 36th Avenue, on Valentine’s Day, at around 12:15 p.m.City of Miami Police Officer Kiara Delva had one word for the confrontation.“It’s very disturbing,” she said.One of the victims told police he had a sense they were in danger. Moments later, officials said, the subjects approached them from behind.It was then when the teens realized they were about to be robbed and started to defend themselves.“These victims were simply minding their business, casually walking home from school, not bothering anyone,” said Delva. The footage shows the ensuing brawl, as one of the attackers is seen going after the victims. He is then seeing trying to get away, with one of the teens hot on their tail.Meanwhile, another assailant slammed the second victim to the ground. Once on the sidewalk, the robber went through the victim’s pockets.Officials said that crook snatched a cellphone and a pair of keys before getting away.“It was very brutal,” said Delva.Investigators said the robbers, who were between 15 and 18 years old, got away in a red car, probably a newer model Toyota Camry or Corolla.Police said they need help in finding this violent trio.“If you have information, please contact us,” said Delva. “That might be the very little bit of information that we need to solve this case.” Thankfully, the victims only suffered a few scrapes and bruises, but the memory of this fight will be hard to forget, which is why, officials said, their assailants need to be taken off the street.“We don’t want these subjects to strike again,” said Delva.If you know anything about this attack and robbery, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

On one hand, the most important part of the tablet — the 8,192-level pressure sensitivity support and the ability to use the standard styluses and software — is the same, as is the essential drawing experience, and comparable to the screen-free Intuos Pro. So as a training-wheels-for-artists or a budget option until you can afford the higher-end model, it’s not a bad deal.But the display/tablet surface is different than the Pro, which may possibly result in slightly worse parallax, though I really didn’t perceive any. In part, I think it’s less perceptible because of the 1,920 x 1,080 HD screen compared to the pricier model’s 4K; I suspect there’s a lot more latitude with the cheaper tablet’s lower pixel density. The Pro model also supports touch, which can be a mixed bag. On one hand, I habitually found myself trying to use the Cintiq 16 as a touch screen. On the other, it was really nice to not have to worry about palm rejection problems.More noticeably, the screen is fairly dim, testing out with a peak brightness of only 215 nits (250 nits is typical for a cheap monitor) and the matte screen looks really soft and low contrast, which isn’t great for detailed work. It also has a relatively small color gamut, measured at about 95 percent sRGB and meh accuracy. The pro model’s gamut hits 94 percent Adobe RGB.The 3-into-1 cable is at least two too many. Lori Grunin/CNET The tablet’s design can be cumbersome as well. It uses an old-fashioned hydra cable with three heads — HDMI, a USB-A connector and and power connector, to which you attach an AC adapter, which in turn attaches to a standard power cable — which doesn’t mesh with modern laptops. For example, a lot of them only offer USB-C connections these days, which means you’d need a USB-C to HDMI adapter or hub as well, and you never know if the adapter will affect the performance. Even if you do have the requisite ports, they’re often on different sides of the system, as was the case with the HP ZBook Studio I hooked it up to at one point.It also has the side loop to hold the Pro Pen 2; those loops tend to be awkward to use since the rubberized grip of the pen keeps it from sliding easily in or out of it (of course, that’s what keeps it from easily falling out as well).The optional stand provides sturdy support. Lori Grunin/CNET Out of the box it has no stand, just two flip-out legs which lift it to a 19 degree angle (or almost flat without them). You’ll probably want the optional stand, which not only lets you ratchet to a larger selection of angles, but lets you stand the Cintiq up to use it as a secondary display or to reduce its footprint when you’re not using it as a tablet.Unfortunately, you have to screw the stand on, which means you can’t use it only occasionally — it’s heavy and bulky, so you can’t easily tote the Cintiq somewhere for an afternoon, say. You also have to pick an orientation, portrait or landscape, when you attach it, and because of the angle it’s not comfortable to use in anything but the preselected orientation. It would be great if it snapped or latched on and could rotate to any orientation. But otherwise it’s not hard to assemble and is quite sturdy and easy to angle.

CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events. Here’s what to expect. Sarah Tew/CNET If you’ve been yearning for a Wacom Cintiq Pro but can’t bear the high prices, the company’s new entry-level Cintiq 16 may offer a more wallet-friendly option. Cintiqs are the line of pressure-sensitive pen displays that provide a mobile tablet-like experience for drawing but connect to a standalone computer; the Pro models start at $800 for a tiny 13-inch model, then jump to $1,500 for the 16-inch model and beyond. At $650, the Cintiq 16 isn’t cheap, but for amateur and budget-strapped professional creatives, it may be the on-ramp you’ve been waiting for.Whether the differences between the Cintiq 16 and its $1,500 brother Cintiq Pro 16 are worth the double the bucks depends on how important aspects ot the display are for you as well as how sensitive you are to parallax (the offset of the pen tip).

Share your voice 28 Photos E3 2019 Every Death Stranding trailer so farKojima has not been stingy with Death Stranding trailers, dropping a number of teasers and extended cinematic looks at the game since its first announcement three years ago at E3. That first trailer (and a crowd going wild for Kojima) is below and features the first time we came to see the star of Death Stranding, Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame, as a naked and hunched over Sam. Video Games Gaming Note: This article was originally published May 30, 2018 and is updated as trailers and news rolls in. Then bang! Gameplay trailer at E3 2018. This was our first real look at what players might be doing in-game — so what did it reveal? Gameplay! Death Stranding will have exploration elements and gorgeous vistas that bring to mind the best elements of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Decima Engine, used to build the game world, provides stunning hyper-realistic landscapes.Yikes. Kojima Productions A teaser came at the Tokyo Game Show in 2018, revealing Troy Baker’s character wearing a Gold half-mask and summoning a terrifying tentacle-lion beast. You can watch that here: 1 See All • Hideo Kojima’s new project, Death Stranding, has raised our eyebrows so much they’re basically flying off of our collective skulls.Kojima has set a high bar for weirdness with the twists and turns fans loved in the Metal Gear Solid series. Since departing the franchise, he’s set his sights on a new project: the PlayStation 4-exclusive Death Stranding. Outside Kojima Productions and the halls of Sony, concrete details about Death Stranding have been relatively sparse.However, after a brief livestream over at Twitch broadcasting creepy, inky hands on May 29, Kojima revealed yet another trailer to go with Death Stranding’s previous four — but this time, we got a release date. We’re not too much wiser about how the story will play out, but we do have a better understanding of how it will play and, importantly, when we can get our hands on it: Nov. 8, 2019. After working our way through trailers, teasers, fan speculation and rumors galore, this is everything we know about Death Stranding. We’ve collated all the teasers so far, and dived into its world, the famous faces involved and a few of the gameplay elements. What is Death Stranding? Gold (gold), always believe in your soul! CNET screenshot/Kojima Productions Death Stranding is the first game from Kojima Productions, a studio founded by legendary game developer Hideo Kojima. After a rocky departure from Konami, where he built up the Metal Gear franchise, among other projects, Kojima started his independent studio and revealed the first title would be exclusive to Sony’s PlayStation 4. The reveal trailer premiered during Sony’s 2016 E3 conference, and sets the stage for the weirdness we’re delving into. Still confused? Don’t worry. Ever since its initial announcement, Death Stranding has been shrouded in mystery. Kojima is famous for his unconventional promotional methods (at one point pretending to be part of a non-Metal Gear studio making a non-Metal Gear game) and for building strangeness into his games (see any Metal Gear ever), and Death Stranding is no exception. It’s important to note that much of what we’ve seen so far is ripped directly from the game’s cutscenes, as confirmed by Kojima. He’s responsible for the scenario, game design, production and direction of the highly cinematic offering, while long-time collaborator Yoji Shinkawan, who worked on Metal Gear and Zone of Enders, is the lead on character and mechanical design. Kojima is marketing Death Stranding as a “completely new type of action game”. The 28 best games on PlayStation 4 The Death Stranding castDeath Stranding’s most recent trailer gave us a ton of new information about the cast and the characters they are playing in game. Some of the names are classic Kojima. Here’s the entire cast we have so far:Norman Reedus is SamMads Mikkelsen is CliffLea Seydoux is FragileMargaret Qualley is MamaGuillermo Del Toro is DeadmanNicolas Winding Refn is HeartmanTommie Earl Jenkins is Die-hardman (yes, seriously)Troy Baker is HiggsLindsay Wagner is AmelieVoice-over work provided by Emily O’Brien, Jesse Corti and Darren JacobsNorman Reedus is the face of Death Stranding. He’s prominently featured in two of the trailers and plays a character know as Sam. What’s up with Sam? Well, let’s hear it straight from Kojima himself: Sam is unlike any other hero you may have seen in games before. A typical hero is usually some sort of elite or someone with a military background. Sam is not. He is a working man of sorts — a hands-on professional. Someone with a skillset akin to a blue-collar worker. Reedus and Kojima previously worked together on the canceled Silent Hills project. If you’re lucky enough to know someone with that project’s demo, P.T., still installed on their PS4, drop everything and play it. Digital Reedus has seen some things. Kojima Productions Reedus elaborated on his experiences with Kojima and teased the weirdness to come in an interview last year with CNET: “It’s mind blowing. He’s a genius. He came out to San Diego for Comic-Con, and he had some stuff on an iPad that he wanted to show me. I sat in a little restaurant at a booth watching this iPad and the things he’d created, and I was just blown away. I was like, ‘Whatever you want to do, let’s do it. I don’t even know what you’re talking about.’ It’s unreal. People will do whatever he wants because he’s a visionary.” Mads Mikkelson’s Cliff appears to be an antagonist to Reedus’ Sam. It appears the characters played by del Toro, Wagner, Seydoux, Winding Refn and Qualley will all aid Sam in his journey in some way. On the flip side, you have Troy Baker’s gold-faced Higgs who may have some connection with Cliff and Tommie Earl Jenkins’ Die-hardman is surely just involved because of his excellent name. Little else is known about their roles in the story so far.Deadman and Cliff. Kojima Productions It’s an intriguing cast, and Kojima said as much in a blog post. “Although it wasn’t my initial intention, we now have a cross-generational, international cast… Across countries, time and generations, we have come together to realize this vision. Coincidentally, this theme is strongly connected with that of the game, and is a theme I strive to realize as a game creator.” What do we know about its gameplay? Kojima helped create the stealth-action genre with Metal Gear, so his area of expertise is well defined. But he’s strayed into horror with P.T. and tried bizarre concepts with Boktai (a game that required you to take your Gameboy into the actual sun), so there’s no guarantee Death Stranding will be MGS in a new universe — though it certainly has that feel at the moment.So long, tactical espionage action. Konami Kojima has persistently hinted at are “ropes” and “sticks.” Citing a Japanese play titled “The Man Who Turned Into a Stick,” Kojima has said that he has focused on the idea that humans first invented ropes and sticks. Sticks are for protection, to create space between a person and harm, while ropes tie people to things they treasure. “Most of your tools in action games are sticks. You punch or you shoot or you kick,” Kojima told IGN upon the game’s reveal. “The communication is always through these ‘sticks.’ In [Death Stranding], I want people to be connected not through sticks, but through what would be the equivalent of ropes.” In a later interview, Kojima hinted at Death Stranding’s death mechanics. Players will be placed in an interactive purgatory, where they can gather items before being brought back into the game world. “Death will never pull you out of the game,” Kojima said, meaning that in Death Stranding, death… will never leave you stranded. *points finger guns*Given the popularity of the Dark Souls series and its imitators, it’s easy to see a similar blend of uncontrolled cooperative-competitive mode taking hold in Death Stranding and, at least from what we know now, there’s some weight to that prediction. In some early marketing materials, there’s the suggestion players can help one another on their journey without actually ever running into each other. You’ll be able to “send supplies, share safe houses and walk in the footsteps of fellow couriers to reunite civilization.” That sounds very Soulsy to us. Umbrellas get weird in the future. The world of Death Stranding We know less about the world of Death Stranding than we know about the gameplay of Death Stranding and we know very little about the gameplay so far. Let’s run through just some some of the disparate elements that have been a part of its trailers so far… Tube babiesInvisible monstersWWII weaponrySpooky skeletonsScientific research teamsWhalesDead whalesUpside-down whalesGiant humanoid creaturesDystopian imageryMale childbirth?Pollution, especially oilChattering backpack robotsYou only have to go as far as the Death Stranding subreddit to see the rampant speculation about what any of those elements actually mean for the game’s story and world. We know those aforementioned babies have a particularly important role in the story and gameplay — Kojima has already said as much. Yep, that happened. Kojima Productions So… where is all of this going? What does it all mean? Are we just going to get an endless series of trailers or will Death Stranding actually get a release date? We’ll update this page as more information emerges, which could be as soon as E3 2019, which takes place between June 11 and 13 in Los Angeles, California. Sony won’t be holding a press conference this year, but when has that sort of roadblock ever stopped Kojima?

Young batting prodigy Shubman Gill has been making headlines recently. He expressed his disappointment at not being a part of India’s squad for the West Indies tour. However, he is focused on churning out the runs and making his case extremely strong in front of the selectors.The road ahead looks cosy for the young man, but he wants to be rooted and keep getting the basics right. He spoke about the influence of Rahul Dravid, who has been his mentor in his Under-19 days.”Rahul sir has been my coach since the India U-19 days and then India A. There is one basic advice from him which I always keep in mind. He would tell me that come what may, never change your basic game that got you success,” said Gill, who became the youngest Indian to score a first-class double hundred earlier this month against West Indies ‘A’.Was not advised to change his game by Rahul Dravid India’s Shubman GillMARTY MELVILLE/AFP/Getty ImagesThe right-hander said that he would rate his double hundred early this month as one of his best innings considering the pitch, the conditions and the bowling attack.”I would certainly rate my double hundred against the West Indies A as one of my best knocks in red ball (cricket) considering the opposition, surface and match situation,” Gill said.The Punjab batsman said that Dravid had asked him not to change his game even if he is not getting the runs as it would then not be his natural game anymore.”Rahul sir told me that if I change my game, it won’t be natural anymore and may not provide success. His focus has always been on the mental make-up while we face the challenge posed by the best,” Gill further added.Much like Virat Kohli, Gill too plays an aesthetically pleasing cover drive and this has evoked comparisons with the Indian skipper. However, the young man said that the stroke came naturally to him since his younger playing days. Yuvraj Singh.Reuters.”…because I have an attacking game against the spinners. Since childhood, I have practised a lot against spin bowling. So while playing on turners, I developed this particular stroke,” said Gill.Gill has shared the Punjab dressing room with Yuvraj Singh and said that the former Indian player gave him a lot of confidence and advice on how to deal with pressure.”Yuvi paaji gives me a lot of advice about handling pressure, fame and adulation. In the Punjab team, I confide a lot in my senior Gurkeerat Singh Mann. And obviously, any for life decision, I always look up to my dad,” he concluded.

CCEnhancer 4.5: HTTPS downloads, new features by Martin Brinkmann on September 24, 2017 in Software – 33 commentsCCEnhancer 4.5 is a new version of the popular Windows software that you may use to add hundreds of new definitions to CCleaner and other programs that support the format (the developer’s own program System Ninja and Bleachbit support it as well).The program downloads the latest definition file and adds it to CCleaner automatically if the program is installed. It adds new custom scan locations to CCleaner in the process which extend the program’s capabilities to clean the computer system.The automatic integration works only if CCleaner is installed. You need to select Functions > Add Portable Location if CCleaner is not installed, as the automatic integration of the set of definitions won’t work when that is the case. This is the option to select if you use a portable version of CCleaner, or another program that supports the definition format.CCEnhancer 4.5Version 4.5 of CCEnhancer is the first significant update of the application in nearly three years. The new version includes new features, bug fixes and even some security hardening.The application uses HTTPS exclusively for all downloads in CCEnhancer 4.5. This improves the security of the process thanks to the exclusive use of secure connections. The developer notes that users on Windows XP and other operating systems that don’t support Server Name Indication (SNI) may have to select “Use alternative download URL” under Advanced if the default download functionality does not work properly.Error Messages that occur when downloads fail or when other download related issues occur are improved in the new version. They should make the cause of the issue clearer.Another new feature is the integrated update check. CCEnhancer checks for updates automatically by default. You may block this from happening in the Settings by removing the checkmark from “Check for program updates”.CCEnhancer comes with a debug tool that you may run to make sure the definitions file is properly formatted and without issues. Since you may add your own definitions to the definitions file in the Settings, a check for duplicate entries is now provided in the debug tool as well.CCEnhancer 4.5 introduces a handful of smaller changes on top of all that. It features a new program icon, a link (ad) to System Ninja which will open the program if it is installed already, automatic detection of the language on first run, and a download button that matches the color of that of CCleaner in the new release.Closing WordsCCEnhancer is a handy program for CCleaner users, and users of other system cleaners that support the custom definitions format as well. The new version improves the security of definition file downloads with the switch to HTTPS exclusivity, and introduces other new features that users will certainly appreciate.Now You: Do you use custom cleanup locations in CCleaner or other cleaning tools?Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 4 votes Software Name CCEnhancerOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://singularlabs.com/software/ccenhancer/ Advertisement

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Nkemdiche, who was slowed a year ago by an ankle sprain, has not practiced since Aug. 22 and did not appear to be ready to do any on-field work on Monday. He and dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon both worked outside with a trainer while their teammates were inside the practice bubble.“It feels good,” Nkemdiche said. “My status is between me and the coaches and the staff in there, so I’m just going to keep going forward and getting healthier and taking it day by day.”So, does Nkemdiche think he’ll play against the Lions?“We’ll see,” he said.The Cardinals did not have to issue an injury report on Monday, and Arians was not forthcoming with any news on that front.The first injury report of the regular season will be released Wednesday.Philip Wheeler just wants to make playsSome eyebrows were raised when the Cardinals decided to keep only three outside linebackers—Markus Golden, Chandler Jones and Kareem Martin—on the initial 53-man roster.Perhaps, many reasoned, rookie Haason Reddick could slide outside if needed. That was, after all, the position he played and excelled at in college.On Monday, Arians offered up another explanation: Philip Wheeler.A nine-year veteran, Wheeler had been practicing at outside linebacker the week leading up to the preseason finale. Against the Broncos, he recorded three tackles, including one for loss, one sack and one quarterback hit in 26 defensive snaps. The Cardinals will practice four times ahead of their Week 1 opener at Detroit.“It’s definitely game week, and we’re ready to go play some football,” linebacker Karlos Dansby said.Over the weekend, the Cardinals released 31 players, placed wide receiver Aaron Dobson on injured reserve, waived/injured defensive tackle Ed Stinson and reached injury settlements with linebacker Tre’von Johnson and linebacker Jarvis Jones.In addition, 10 players were signed to the practice squad, including guard Dorian Johnson and linebacker Scooby Wright; both of whom had been cut on Saturday.Finally, a group of players who had come together in late July have become the 2017 Cardinals, a familiar refrain of Arians.“I think we’re smarter,” he said, comparing this year’s roster to 2016. “That’s the biggest thing, especially in the back end of the secondary. We’re, I think, longer and faster again. Each year, we’ve tried to get longer and faster. I think our biggest improvement would be special teams.”Robert Nkemdiche healthierDay-to-day is how the Cardinals described the status of defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche after he strained his calf the last week of training camp. On Labor Day, the Arizona Cardinals labored.For 90 minutes Monday, the Cardinals got after it inside their practice bubble. It marked their first time together since the preseason finale in Denver and cuts reduced an 89-man roster to the required 53, per NFL rules.“I really like the look of our squad,” head coach Bruce Arians said. “All the painful days are over and it’s good times. We got a very good practice start with the bonus day and I look forward to getting back here Wednesday.” Top Stories “I like to go where the ball is going,” he said. “I would like to think that if I get in a game that I’m getting in there to make a play. I want to be where the action is. If team is running behind the tight end a lot, I want to go on that side. I want to be stacked behind that side. If their passing a lot, sometimes I might want to be pass rushing. Wherever the team needs me. If they don’t need me. Whenever they do, I’ll be ready.”The Cardinals signed Wheeler when injuries depleted the depth at inside linebacker a week into training camp. Soon Wheeler, too, got hurt. A foot injury cost him the first three preseason games, leaving him not much time to impress the coaches.“It kind of made me feel like I need to show everything I got and make plays; try to make plays. I was able to make a couple of plays the other night,” he said, referring to the Broncos game. “I feel like it worked out fine.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 6 Comments Share

In partnership with SeedSpot, a nationally recognized social impact entrepreneurship organization, we hosted ten students including some residents and one participant from the Phoenix area. Their work involved creating storyboards, testing market assumptions, engaging with potential customers, and finally preparing a one minute pitch that could communicate all of the key aspects of their idea to potential partners or investors. The week was a blast for both the facilitators and participants. This pilot project reminded us of how powerful Arcosanti can be as an incubator for ideas and creative problem-solving. Not only was the week a great exercise in entrepreneurial thinking, but we gained several very promising proposals for site-specific partnerships next year, many of which seemed both promising and feasible to onsite managers who were in attendance at Pitch Night. Project pitches included a natural building course, a traveling photo exhibition, and an augmented reality tour. (Text By Sean P.V., Edits by Tim Bell, Photos by Keven Keleher and Rob Jameson) Last week marked the conclusion of the first Convergence Workshop. The capstone of the workshop engaged students in a four-day long accelerator program, encouraging workshop participants to synthesize the lessons learned over the past weeks into a focused project or business proposal that could create positive change, both at Arcosanti and in the world at large. Pitch Night marked the summit of our five weeks with this amazing cohort – a chance to showcase to the community the ideas we had been working to refine. It was amazing to see so many come out to watch as our newest workshop graduates pitched their projects and expressed appreciation for their experience on site. Based off of this success, we look forward to the potential of more SeedSpot programs in 2019! November 12, 2018@Arcosanti,AZ
