Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorWhen thinking of Ohio State’s defensive line, most people immediately turn their attention to defensive ends like sophomore Nick Bosa, redshirt junior Sam Hubbard, or Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year redshirt senior Tyquan Lewis.But last season, the leading tackler on that line was none other than then-redshirt freshman defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones.Jones finished 2016 with 52 total tackles — four of which were for a loss — in what was an impressive debut season for the now-third-year defensive lineman.Coming off a strong freshman season, Jones has only made improvements in the spring, so much so that coach Urban Meyer has called him “the most improved” player this offseason.“Dre’Mont Jones is really turning into a fine player here for us,” Meyer said.It has taken Jones some time to work himself into this position. He missed his true freshman season while recovering from a torn ACL he suffered while playing basketball at his high school, St. Ignatius in Cleveland. Jones said it took him about 10 months to make the full recovery.Once he joined the Buckeyes, his work began with trimming down weight. He entered OSU weighing about 285 pounds and said he dropped that number down to around 260 in an effort to change “baby fat into real muscle.” “I was a little heavy when I first got here, had to drop about 30 pounds and then get it all back,” Jones said. “I don’t want to be all blobby.”Defensive line coach Larry Johnson said that Jones’ shape has improved as he plays, thanks in large part to a game built around running and rushing the offensive line.“Dre’Mont can run like a running back,” Johnson said. “Very smooth, transitional player and he’s in great shape. Dre’Mont’s one of the guys who’s in shape all the time because he’s running. I think that’s what makes the difference. He can go get the football.”Johnson added that Jones has demonstrated talent not only on the field, but in the classroom, helping make him stand out.“He’s doing a great job academic wise in the classroom. He’s a really smart football player, IQ football is really high and now just to be able to continue to grow,” Johnson said. Back when Johnson was the defensive line coach at Penn State, he coached a linebacker named Tamba Hali, who has since gone on to become a five-time Pro Bowler and enjoyed an 11-year career in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs. Johnson said Jones reminds him a lot of Hali in how their speed and athleticism translate to success on the defensive side of the ball.“He’s close to Tamba Hali,” Johnson said. “Tamba Hali was like that. He would run all day long.”The other defensive lineman have taken note of Jones’ presence on the line, including Lewis, who said Jones’ versatility and speed that Jones provides can be a huge asset for the defense.“He’s a high motor guy,” Lewis said. “He does a lot of things for us. He moves around a lot. He’s all over the place. I don’t think nobody could outrun him. It’s like he doesn’t get tired so he’s all over the place. It’s hard not to love him on the field.”That versatility might be tested in 2017 with OSU possibly looking at running out a new-look defensive line. Meyer spoke on Tuesday about out a line that featured four defensive ends and Dre’Mont Jones in a heavy-loaded front five.“I would like to see all five on the field at one time,” Meyer said on Tuesday. “Coaches like to say that we have to hold the checkers. You got five really good checkers right there, play them all at once.”Lewis said such a defensive alignment could be dangerous, but also added that he doesn’t know if the five-man front is a reality yet.Regardless of what players are out on the field, Jones knows that he will need to make improvements in his own game to really help out the team. “Last year, one of the things we evaluate, we thought he did a great job playing the run, great job affecting the pass, but not a lot of sacks,” Johnson said. “So what we worked on this spring, improving that and that’s a matter of technique. This spring, he’s been very effective and he’s bought into it.”With an experienced defensive line coach in Johnson to help him become a better pass-rusher, Jones is making sure to put in all the hard work and is excited to get back onto the field in games and prove that he can get after the quarterback in his second season.“That’s what coach Johnson emphasizes a lot. Just getting to the quarterback, getting to the quarterback, getting to the quarterback so that became my philosophy too,” Jones said. “So I’m eager to get the quarterback every trip. Doesn’t matter, run or pass.”

Marée noire : BP consacre 500 millions de dollars à la recherche sur son impact environnementalÉtats-Unis – Le groupe pétrolier britannique BP s’est engagé à consacrer jusqu’à 500 millions de dollars à un programme de recherche visant à étudier les impacts de la marée noire sur l’environnement. Rappelons que la catastrophe a été engendrée par l’explosion puis le naufrage d’une plate-forme que le groupe exploitait dans le golfe du Mexique.Alors que le gouvernement américain commence à hausser le ton face aux échecs successifs des tentatives de colmatage de la fuite de pétrole, BP a annoncé qu’il versera 500 millions de dollars destinés à la recherche sur les conséquences de la marée noire sur l’environnement.À lire aussiMaladie d’Alzheimer : les femmes discriminées dans la recherche ?”BP s’est engagé à faire tout ce qu’il pouvait pour amoindrir l’impact de cet incident tragique sur les riverains et l’environnement de la côte du golfe du Mexique”, a assuré dans un communiqué le directeur général du groupe pétrolier, Tony Hayward. Et d’ajouter : “Nous devons faire tous les efforts nécessaires pour mesurer cet impact”.Le programme de recherche que financera BP, d’une durée de 10 ans, sera dirigé par un comité “indépendant”. Ce dernier devra répartir les fonds en fonction des différentes études que mèneront des équipes de spécialistes de la biologie marine et de l’océanographie. Pour débuter ce programme de recherche, une première somme dont le montant n’a pas encore été précisé, sera versée à l’université de l’État de Louisiane.Depuis l’explosion et le naufrage de la plateforme pétrolière Deepwater Horizon dans le golfe du Mexique, ce sont chaque jour plusieurs centaines de milliers de litres de pétrole brut qui continuent à se déverser dans la mer.Le 26 mai 2010 à 09:44 • Emmanuel Perrin

Dismantling of derelict Davy Crockett about 80 completeDismantling of derelict Davy Crockett about 80 complete
With more than 80 percent of the vessel now gone, the dismantling of the Davy Crockett continues at a steady clip.But even with an aggressive work pace — crews have pulled as much as 50,000 pounds of steel from the broken vessel in a single day — officials now say it could be late August or September before the broken liberty ship-turned-barge is gone from the north bank of the Columbia River near Camas.“They’ve been pretty much working on this thing seven days a week, almost nonstop,” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Shawn Eggert.The numbers continue to climb — 3.6 million pounds of steel removed, another 730,000 pounds of debris, more than 13,000 gallons of bunker oil and almost 5,000 pounds of asbestos.And the cost stands at $16.6 million to date, paid for by the federal Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund.At this point, most of the work is taking place underwater, said Kim Schmanke, a Washington State Department of Ecology spokesperson. Recent photos show little remaining of the 431-foot vessel.“We’re down to about the last 100 feet of bow section,” Schmanke said.Owner investigatedThe saga began in January, when Davy Crockett owner Brett Simpson attempted to scrap the damaged vessel while it was afloat. Instead, the vessel buckled and partially sank, releasing oil and debris into the Columbia River.
Firefighters were able to extinguish a Tuesday afternoon fire at a west Hazel Dell house in about 25 minutes. A fire that appeared to have started in the attic caused significant damage to a west Hazel Dell house Tuesday afternoon.The fire was reported at 1:51 p.m. at 801 N.W. 79th St., a quiet residential street southeast of Jason Lee Middle School.Clark County Fire District 6 firefighters arrived to find heavy brown and white smoke coming from both ends of the L-shaped ranch-style house, said Assistant Chief Dave Taylor.Three District 6 engine companies attacked the fire, assisted by an engine and a truck company from the Vancouver Fire Department.The fire was initially difficult to reach. It was burning toward the middle of the house, and the roof was weakened by the blaze. So firefighters attacked the fire from the ground, pulling down several ceilings to reach the attic.The fire was declared under control in about 25 minutes.Taylor said no one was home at the time the fire was reported. County property records show the ranch-style house, built in 1958, is owned by Victor Von Fumetti Jr.According to Columbian records, Vic Fumetti died June 23 at age 83. His wife, Bettye, died in 2004. The couple had lived at the home for many years.The house sustained significant damage to the roof and attic, and its interior was damaged by smoke and the remains of the pulled-down ceilings and blown-in attic insulation. A damage estimate had not been determined Tuesday.
(Photo by Heather Bryant/KTOO)More than two-thousand Southeast Alaska Natives danced their way to Juneau’s Centennial Hall on Wednesday evening for Celebration 2014.The biennial festival is the largest cultural event in the state. Organized by Sealaska Heritage Institute, it brings multiple generations of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people together to celebrate their culture.Download AudioThe Saanya Kwaan, Cape Fox dancers, were chosen to lead the processional of 50 dance groups in the Grand Entrance.Harvey Shields is the leader of the Chief welcome dance.“We are the Saanya Kwaan people and we originate about 50 miles south of Saxman,” he says.Like other groups here, the Saanya Kwaan range in age from about 5 years old to elders.“At two and three years old, they put regalia on them and then they start walking around and as they get older they find their place of where they need to be,” Shields says.The Johnson O’Malley dance group from Wrangell is further down the street.“I was still sewing on the ferry,” Sandra Churchill says, laughing. She made two button robes this year for Celebration.“I know we know it’s every two years, and we still put it off ’til the last minute, but it’s worth it,” she says.Celebration started in 1982 and Churchill has been to all 16 events. Her dance group has been practicing for months for this year’s festivities.“It’s important for the young children,” she says, “to see the elders and how much they love it and instill that so they will carry it on for us.”The sidewalks were clogged with people snapping pictures and taking videos. Patricia McGraw and her husband Gary looked like they were on a safari. They had traveled from Pensacola, Florida to Juneau specifically for Celebration.McGraw grew up in Juneau. She chokes up as she recalls that time.“When I was young the Native traditions were totally disrespected. And you know kids knew. I was told not to play with the Native kids. But kids know what’s right, what’s wrong, and I’ve always felt quite strongly that they needed their traditions and we needed to honor their traditions,” she says.And as a non-Native, Celebration is a homecoming McGraw embraced.At age 75, Ken Grant says his dancing days are over. But he’s danced at many Celebrations with the Mount Fairweather group from Hoonah.Grant works for the National Park Service and lives in Bartlett Cove, where he has a spectacular view of the Fairweather range on clear days.His formal Tlingit name even comes from Mount Fairweather.“It means being proud, and having pride in the mountain and all that it stands for; the songs, the regalia and the stories that come from it,” he says.Much like Celebration, he says.“Most of all I think it builds in pride, it builds in passion, which I think is really important. For anything to function properly you need to have that pride and passion,” he says. “And I think that Celebration is a good source for pride and passion.”Celebration continues through Saturday with dance performances, Native Art, Native language sessions, lectures, a parade and the Grand Exit.
Corps of Engineers halts cleanup after workers discover buried DDTtainted junkCorps of Engineers halts cleanup after workers discover buried DDTtainted junk
DEC Contaminated-Site Specialist Danielle Duncan says she thinks it’s unlikely the DDT and chlordane present a threat to human health, because it’s been re-buried and because so far only residues of the toxins have been found. (Eielson AFB file photo)The Army Corps of Engineers last fall halted cleanup of fuel-tainted soil near Birch Lake, about 60 miles south of Fairbanks, when workers uncovered buried junk that included barrels with residues of a different contaminant – the banned pesticides DDT and chlordane.Listen nowCleanup project manager Beth Astley says contractor workers discovered the junk while excavating soil contaminated by leaky fuel-storage tanks in an area that’s now part of the Birch Lake State Recreation Site.“We ran into some trash, some buried metal, some drums that were empty,” Astley said. “And when we got to some rusted-out cans of insecticide that were labeled as containing DDT, we stopped.”Astley says Anchorage-based Bristol Environmental Remediation Services had to stop excavating the site because its contract called for removal of soil contaminated by fuel.“That’s a different contaminant than we thought we were removing, which is petroleum,” Astley said. “So we stopped, we sampled, and at that point, we decided to terminate the removal effort until we could determine the full extent of this buried debris that may contain pesticides.”The Birch Lake cleanup is one of several the Corps has conducted in recent years along the old Haines to Fairbanks Pipeline, a 626-mile, 8-inch line built by the military in the 1950s and shut down in 1973.Astley and other Corps officials talked about the discovery of the toxins last week at a public meeting in Delta Junction.“The pesticide contamination is different,” Astley said, “Because it requires us to ship soil out of the state for disposal, because there’s no permitted landfills in the state of Alaska that will accept this soil contaminated with pesticide.”Astley says workers found the debris about three feet below the surface in an area between where two large above-ground tanks were located. She couldn’t say exactly how much of the debris is buried at the site. She says a geophysical survey the Corps conducted at the site last month may help agency officials estimate the amount of excavation that’ll be needed to remove the junk, which includes some crushed 55-gallon drums that may have been used to mix the pesticides.The fuel- and pesticide-contaminated soil and junk is located in a military-personnel recreation area built by the Air Force when it was managing the Birch Lake Tank Storage Site that was part of the old Haines-Fairbanks Pipeline. (Alaska Department of Fish and Game)“So we have a better idea of the area that contains this buried waste, which includes mostly crushed drums,” Astley said. “But we don’t know how much of that might contain residue from pesticide drums that were crushed and disposed of.”Astley says the DDT and perhaps the chlordane were being used to kill mosquitoes. That was a common use for DDT from when it was developed in 1940s until it was outlawed in 1972. It’s categorized it as a carcinogen, and tests have shown other health impacts.Chlordane was used as a pesticide from 1948 until it was banned in 1988 after tests linked it to neurological and reproductive systems disorders. But Astley says the toxins shouldn’t present a health threat now that the junk has covered with a plastic liner and re-buried with clean fill.“And so now the next step is to go back and to investigate the extent of this buried debris and to remove any hazardous debris or soil remaining at that site,” Astley said.Astley says once that analysis is done, Corps officials will develop a new contract would to remove the junk and contaminated soil. She says if all goes well the work could be done in the summer of 2020.Astley’s state counterpart agrees the junk shouldn’t threaten human health, both because it’s been re-buried and because it appears there were only small, residual amounts of the pesticides in the crushed drums and cans.“This isn’t something that’s on the surface – this isn’t something that if you were to be on-site you’d encounter,” Danielle Duncan, a contaminated-site program specialist with the state Department of Environmental Conservation, said. “So, as far as an immediate threat to human health and the environment, that’s not the case.”Duncan, who’s been working with Astley on the cleanup projects, says the Corps’ tests showed the presence of the pesticides in soil around the buried junk, but she thinks it’s unlikely to have seeped into the groundwater or the lake’s surface water. She says DEC will, however, likely conduct tests to confirm that.“That is on our radar, as is groundwater (testing),” Duncan said.Astely says the Corps has finished its cleanup of the Birch Lake site and another near Quartz Lake. She says the Corps officials now plan to study another lesser-known site near Tenderfoot Creek, just north of Shaw Creek, where the pipeline burst in 1971 and spewed fuel into the creek.
Is Indian team afraid of playing daynight Tests Cricket Australia tries toIs Indian team afraid of playing daynight Tests Cricket Australia tries to
Day-night Tests have become an integral part of Australian seasonReutersThe relations between Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Australia (CA) have become strained over the last few months. The Indian board flexed its muscle and got its Australian counterpart to take the unprecedented step of organising an away tour in the middle of the Australian season – to India.But there is more than scheduling that has been keeping the two boards apart. There are no Australian cricketers taking part in the ongoing Women’s T20 challenge in India. This too was a result of tensions between the two bodies.Disagreement over D/N TestTwo senior officials of the CA – chairman Earl Eddings and chief executive Kevin Roberts – are coming to India for holding talks with the BCCI and improving relations. While there would be many issues that will be brought up, the matter of Australia playing day-night Tests against India might be among the trickiest.Day-night Tests have been a regular part of the Australian season ever since their introduction in 2015 during the series against New Zealand. CA wanted one of the four Tests against India played in the last season to be a day-night affair as well. But the Indians rejected the proposal due to worries about the home team getting too much of an advantage. Indians didn’t play any day-nighters in their last Test series in OzMark Kolbe/Getty ImagesHowever, the Australians are hopeful that they would get BCCI to agree to playing a day-nighter on their next tour of the country, set to take place during 2020/21 season. This won’t be easy for the two-member delegation. Considering India’s clout and the vulnerability shown by the team in swing-friendly conditions during their tour of England last year, Aussies will have a hard time getting them to agree.Characteristics of D/N Tests in OzAll day-night Tests held so far in Australia have been highly favourable to swing bowlers due to the propensity of the pink ball to move in the air. But, unlike the very first day-nighter in Australia, played at the Adelaide Oval, where the ball swung so viciously that the match ended in less than three days, the subsequent matches saw an exciting contest between bat and ball.Besides, India now possess a very capable bowling attack that can exploit seamer-friendly conditions as well as any other line-up. So, there is a possibility that BCCI may relent and let the Australians have their wish. Then again, the Aussies have won all five day-night Tests they have hosted – including against teams like South Africa and England. So, getting the Indians to concede such a big advantage may prove a tough task.

Related Nas, in a statement, said, “The direct relationship between artists and their fans is more important than it’s ever been, and podcasting is the perfect medium to build that relationship. Five years from now, people are going to be earning annuities off of podcast content, and Glow is going to help make that happen.”Glow co-founder and CEO Amira Valliani previously served as an adviser in the Obama administration and a special assistant in the U.S. State Department, before launching a career in tech and media. says she started the company after launching a local news podcast only to find that despite her listeners’ willingness to pay for more content, she lacked the infrastructure to be able to turn her hobby into a business.Valliani teamed with Ben Gilbert, co-host of tech podcast “Acquired,” who was looking to solve the same problem. They collaborated on launching Glow out of Pioneer Square Labs, the startup studio Gilbert co-founded. Glow now powers subscriptions for the premium version of “Acquired,” which generates more revenue than the original ad-supported podcast.Also coming on board for the company’s launch was chief product officer Brian Elieson, a former Amazon exec who most recently was senior manager of product and engineering for Alexa Shopping.Glow isn’t trying to build a “Netflix for podcasts,” according to Valliani — that’s closer to the model of Luminary Media, which offers a $7.99 monthly subscription-based service for access to exclusive content. Rather, Glow is like the “Shopify for podcasts,” she said, referring to the company that lets merchants set up their own ecommerce businesses. “Glow is building a solution targeted at these hundreds of thousands of podcasters feeling the pain of this monetization gap,” Valliani said.Greycroft, whose portfolio focuses on internet and mobile companies, has made other investments in the podcast space including Hernan Lopez’s Wondery and analytics platform Chartable.“We’ve been looking for a company tackling the subscription business model in podcasting in the right way that’s native to the medium,” Alan Patricof, founder and managing director of Greycroft said in a statement. “Creators have relied solely for advertising for too long, and we love the sustainable way that Glow enables podcasters to thrive in this incredibly fast-growing media category.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

PS Vita Memory Card prices leak they are very highPS Vita Memory Card prices leak they are very high
US retail prices for the PlayStation Vita‘s proprietary memory cards have appeared on the website of game retailer GameStop, and they look to put the hurt on players who were initially attracted to the upcoming handheld’s otherwise attractive base price tag.The prices start at $29.99 and go all the way up to $119.99 – for a mere 32GB. The full range of prices includes:4GB: $29.998GB: $44.9916GB: $69.9932GB: $119.99The prices are generally in line with those in other territories, including Japan, which is notorious for high-priced electronics. Over there, a 32GB Vita card is set to cost 9,500 yen, or roughly $120.Meanwhile, a cursory Google search yields 32GB SD cards selling online for less than $40. However, SD Cards or even the PSP’s old Memory Stick Pro cards will not be usable, as Sony has adopted a completely proprietary storage format.Worse, 7 of the 21 upcoming launch titles (in Japan) will require the Vita card, which means that players will have to further pay up for the privilege of playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Ridge Racer or Disgaea 3 Return, among others. External storage is also required to acquire games by download from the PlayStation Store, so those who were hoping to turn their Vita into a primarily cloud system will ultimately pay a heavier price.The PS Vita launches on December 17 in Japan and February 2012 in the US.via CVGBlake’s OpinionSony appears to be adopting the razor-and-cartridge model with the Vita, telling by accessory prices. A simple USB cable? $17, at current exchange rates. How about that carrying case that got its own 8-minute video? $23. Earbuds? $36.It’s been a proven model for decades that console makers sell the hardware at a loss and make the loss back up with software royalties. Making up the loss on required, not included, proprietary accessories may or may not be new, depending on how you view the Xbox 360‘s hard drive options.
The sequel to 1986’s hit Top Gun is taking off from a real aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln, off Norfolk, Virginia, according to the U.S. Navy. The first day of shooting of Top Gun: Maverick took place at Naval Air Station North Island in California, the Navy said. In mid-August, shooting moved to the East Coast for at least a week.The Abraham Lincoln is the fifth vessel of the Nimitz-Class nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. The vessel is homeported in Norfolk.The USS Abraham LincolnTom Cruise and Val Kilmer have both returned to the cast of the sequel, slated to hit the big screen in July 2019. Media reports say Cruise plays an instructor instead of a fighter pilot this time. However, no one expects Maverick to stay on the ground when the plot’s action kicks in.New cast members: Whiplash actor Miles Teller as the son of Maverick’s former wingman, Goose, who was played by Anthony Edwards in the first film; Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), as a single mother running a bar; Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit) as the daughter of Connelly’s character; Charles Parnell (A Million Little Pieces) as an admiral; Bashir Salahuddin (GLOW) as an engineer; and the trio of Jay Ellis (Insecure), Danny Ramirez (Assassination Nation), and Monica Barbaro (The Good Cop) as pilots.Miles Teller.

We’ll have big, fast machines. … It’s going to be a competition film like the first one and it’s going to be in the same vein, the same tone as the first one, but a progression for Maverick.”The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) was also used as a filming location for the 2004 movie ‘Stealth’Oblivion’s Joe Kosinski is directing the film. Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced Top Gun with the late Don Simpson, has returned to produce the sequel.Pilot Online reports: “A 15-person crew from Paramount Pictures and Bruckheimer Films went aboard the Lincoln on Sunday and will remain through Saturday”, said Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Cmdr. Dave Hecht. He said no actors are aboard and that the crew is shooting footage on the flight deck of air operations, which include F/A-18 Super Hornets from Virginia Beach-based Carrier Air Wing Seven taking off and landing as part of their carrier qualifications.”Tom Cruise in San Diego filming “Top Gun” sequel“This opportunity is one of many aircraft carrier embarks planned pierside and at sea on both coasts coordinated by the Commander, Naval Air Forces,” Hecht said in an email from aboard the Lincoln.“Top Gun inspired countless men and women to volunteer to protect and defend our country as Naval aviators and the crew of USS Abraham Lincoln are excited to play a small role in bringing this story back to the silver screen and inspiring another generation to serve in the world’s finest Navy,” he continued.This image shows the Naval aircraft carrier the USS Abraham Lincoln docked in Everett, WA, March 21, 2010.The original Top Gun earned more than $300 million at the box office and is considered one of the quintessential 80s movies, the highest grossing film of 1986.In the original film, Cruise’s character, U.S. Naval aviator Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, attends the Top Gun school at the Naval Air Station in Miramar, California.

VIDEO Johnny Manziel openly discusses substance abuse depression admits wrongdoing in precomebackVIDEO Johnny Manziel openly discusses substance abuse depression admits wrongdoing in precomeback
Johnny Manziel has embarked on his pro football comeback, and offered some insight into his mindset interview with Good Morning America.A newly engaged Johnny Football spoke openly about his battles with substance abuse and depression and accepted responsibility for the hard partying that ended up seeing him bounced all the way from the NFL to Coachella and wrecked L.A. mansions. He revealed that he has been medically diagnosed as bipolar and is taking medication to treat it.“[I’m] Watching other guys doing what I want to be doing, and I’m sitting on the couch being a loser.”He did not address anything regarding domestic violence allegations against his ex-girlfriend that landed him in legal trouble. Johnny sounds like he’s in a far better place than the ‘going to Vegas dressing in a blonde wig’ days, but he’ll have to walk the walk for a long time, likely in the CFL, before getting another crack at the NFL. He acknowledges as much.Best of luck to staying straight in his comeback szn.Former NFL star @JManziel2 reflects on ‘mistakes,’ reveals bipolar diagnosis in an exclusive interview with @tjholmes. https://t.co/gZfdnK5Ybz pic.twitter.com/eZl0XPpUzN— Good Morning America (@GMA) February 12, 2018 Advertisement

TEMPE, Ariz. — February 1.That is the date Larry Fitzgerald offered, not because it’s when he plans on making an announcement with regards to his future, but because it is about that time when his body will have recovered from the season he just played.Whether he plans on coming back for the 2017 season or not, he likely won’t have any inkling until at least then.“You’ve played in 16 games, you’re banging with very strong guys every week, it’s just part of it,” Fitzgerald said Thursday as he held court with the media in front of his locker. “Once that wears off, you kind of have a better determination, feeling of what you want to do at that point. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (11) waves during the second half of an NFL football game against the New Orleans Saints , Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Only Fitzgerald truly knows what will be the determining factors, and as he’s repeatedly said, as of now he’s still not sure what he is going to do. That uncertainty has led some to surmise he will return in 2017, which may very well be the case.Or, he could decide 13 seasons, 10 Pro Bowls and countless other awards and records are enough, and that it’s time to move on.When the time comes, Fitzgerald said “I’ll know.”If it is the latter option, then Fitzgerald’s career will have ended without much fanfare, as there has been no farewell tour for one of the best players the franchise has ever known. That may seem odd and perhaps even criminal, but for Fitzgerald, he would not want it any other way.“It’s not about me; this is a team game,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m one of 1,600. I’ve had a great time doing it but I will never say ‘I’m about to do this’ and try to get some adulation. That’s not how I’m wired.“Tim Duncan’s more my speed.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter “So I think the best thing is not to make any haste decisions and that’s kind of the process I’m going to take.”With that in mind, as Fitzgerald and the Cardinals head into the final game of the 2016 season — and possibly the last game in the receiver’s Hall of Fame career — his status offers an interesting backdrop to an otherwise interest-lacking Week 17.Fitzgerald enters the game four receptions behind Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown for the NFL lead, and with Brown set to sit out the Steelers’ final game, the door seems to be open for the Cardinals’ veteran to take home the receptions crown.Yet, Fitzgerald said if Brown does not play the achievement will not mean as much, adding it will require an asterisk if it happens.While Fitzgerald needs four catches to pass Brown, seven would tie his career high for receptions in a season, with his mark of 109 being set just last season. Even surpassing that would ring hollow, though, because as the receiver pointed out, last year’s effort came in a playoff season.“Nothing felt better than that,” he said.At this time last season, as Fitzgerald and the Cardinals were gearing up for a postseason run, there was not much talk about his place in the record books or possible retirement. But with the team having been eliminated from playoff contention for a few weeks now, the topics have understandably changed. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact If you’re looking for any hints, however, you can perhaps take solace in the fact that Fitzgerald, 33, said he feels “pretty good” physically.“No, like, glaring issues or anything like that,” he said. “Just normal, overall fatigue and tired, sore. I think everybody around the league, Week 17, probably feels about the same.”However, when prompted about how his gaudy statistics would seem to indicate he still has a few good years left in him, Fitzgerald responded, “some people could say that.”If Fitzgerald calls it quits sometime after Sunday’s game, he said the thing he would miss the most is being around his teammates, joking that paychecks are a close second.“And then I would say third, the competition and the game speaks for itself,” he said. “There’s nothing like running out, hearing your name called, and you hear 60,000 people cheering or booing.“That’s a high that can’t be replaced.”It may not have to be, at least just yet. Fitzgerald is under contract for next season, and though he has talked about considering retirement, there has been little inkling of which way he will go. He said physically he could still compete at a high level, adding that is not what the issues are. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments Share Top Stories

his work over the decades is Adwaita Gadanayak, making the electricity source less competitive with fossil fuels like natural gas and coal The case was brought by two US solar panel manufacturers Suniva and SolarWorld that have struggled to compete in recent years as Chinese manufacturers slashed solar panel prices and US energy companies bought and installed them “Without temporary relief there will likely be no existing American [solar] cells or modules industry within a short period of time” wrote Suniva in a federal complaint “Relief is necessary to prevent the permanent loss of a competitive domestic industry” While the ruling could protect American solar panel manufacturers from foreign competition it could also threaten other sectors of the solar power industry and renewable energy in the US as a whole Thousands of Americans rely on the solar industry for jobs installing repairing and operating solar panels whether those panels are made in the US or not The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has claimed that a tariff could cost 88000 US solar jobs of more than 250000 employed in the industry (Solar panel manufacturing accounts for about 8000 of those 250000 jobs) “If you were to double the price of a solar module it would have massive negative impacts for 99% of the solar supply chain" said Amy Grace head of North American research at Bloomberg New Energy Finance a research firm before the decision "You would be cutting off your entire body to save your pinky" The decision on whether to impose a tariff now falls to the Trump administration And while President Trump has not yet said what he will do many observers expect him to impose a harsh tariff based on his repeated questioning of free trade barbs directed at China and promise to restore American manufacturing Still that move would face major pushback from conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which have publicly opposed a solar tariff A bipartisan group of governors has also raised concerns about the effect of a tariff on jobs in their states “Tariffs today would amount to nothing more than a crony capitalist giveaway” conservative groups including Heritage and Alec said in a September open letter “They would be paid for by crippling an otherwise growing domestic solar industry” Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomMoscow: Vladimir Putin cruised to victory in Russia’s presidential election on Sunday giving him at least another six years in power as Moscow’s relations with the West become increasingly strained Putin who has ruled Russia for almost two decades recorded his best ever election performance with more than 76 percent of the vote but the Opposition cried foul Monitors reported ballot stuffing and other cases of alleged fraud as the Kremlin pushed for a high turnout to give greater legitimacy to Putin’s historic fourth term The Russian strongman ran against seven other candidates but his most vocal critic Alexei Navalny was barred from the ballot for legal reasons and the final outcome was never in doubt "I see in this (result) the confidence and hope of our people" Putin said in an address to a crowd of supporters on a square next to the Kremlin after exit polls put him on track for a resounding victory "Our thoughts will turn to the future of our great country and the future of our children" said the man who is already Russia’s longest-serving leader since Stalin File image of Russian president Vladimir Putin AP About 107 million Russians were eligible to cast ballots and in its latest update on participation three hours before polls closed in Moscow the central election commission said turnout was at 60 percent Authorities used both the carrot and the stick to boost engagement in the polls Selfie competitions giveaways food festivals and children’s entertainers were laid on at polling stations in a bid to create a festive atmosphere around the election But employees of state and private companies reported coming under pressure to vote while students were threatened with problems in their exams or even expulsion if they did not take part according to the independent Novaya Gazeta newspaper According to central election commission data with 90 percent of ballots counted Putin took 764 percent of the vote well ahead of his nearest competitor Communist Party candidate Pavel Grudinin who was on 12 percent Ultra-nationalist firebrand Vladimir Zhirinovsky took around 6 percent former reality TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak was on 15 percent and other candidates were on less than a single percentage point each The election was held as Russia faces increasing isolation on the world stage over a spy poisoning in Britain and a fresh round of US sanctions just as it gears up for the football World Cup in the summer ‘Unprecedented violations’ Navalny — who called on his supporters to boycott the "fake" vote and sent more than 33000 observers across the country to see how official turnout figures differed from those of monitors — said there had been "unprecedented violations" His lawyer Ivan Zhdanov said the actual national turnout at 1700 GMT when polls closed in Moscow was 55 percent according to data collected by monitors Navalny’s Opposition movement and the non-governmental election monitor Golos reported ballot stuffing repeat voting and Putin supporters being bussed into polling stations en masse One election commission worker in the republic of Dagestan which traditionally registers extremely high official turnout figures told AFP around 50 men entered the station where he was working and physically assaulted an observer before stuffing a ballot box But the electoral commission dismissed most concerns saying monitors sometimes misinterpret what they see Runner-up Grudinin said the elections had been "dishonest" in comments carried by news agencies following early results Putin ‘a hero’ Since first

the humiliating collapse of the Soviet Union "Of course I’m for Putin he’s a leader" said Olga Matyunina a 65-year-old retired economist "After he brought Crimea back he became a hero to me" Sunday

London expelled 23 Russian diplomats prompting a tit-for-tat move by Moscow Also this week Washington hit Russia with sanctions for trying to influence the 2016 US election After his victory Putin
