Raptors in court battle over logo Monster Energy says clawmarks too similar

first_imgWhether or not the NBA’s Toronto Raptors take home the league championship after tonight’s basketball game, the team still faces a court battle of a very different kind.Monster Energy, makers of a well-known sports drink, says the team’s logo of a clawed-up basketball is too similar to theirs.The drink company has been fighting with the Raptors over the image before the U.S. Patent Office’s trial and appeal board since 2015.That was almost right after Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which owns the Raptors, registered the new design. Monster has filed similar complaints in Canada and as far afield as Peru.U.S. patent lawyer Josh Gerben says there is a small chance the Raptors could lose the right to the popular logo.He says it’s most likely the companies will settle out of court.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

SUNDANCE COFOUNDER STERLING VAN WAGENEN SENTENCED TO 6 YEARS TO LIFE IN

first_img Twitter Advertisement “You did the right thing and you’re not responsible for anything that happened and anything that will happen,” said Griffin during the hearing south of Salt Lake City. “You’re a brave young lady.”The sister of the victim, whose name The Associated Press is withholding because she is a victim of sexual abuse, read a letter on her sister’s behalf blasting Van Wagenen for lying and being a coward.“I strongly believe the only thing you were actually torn up about is the fact that you got caught,” the sister said.Apology ‘meaningless’Van Wagenen declined to apologize when he spoke to the victim and her family.“It’s clear that any kind of apology I can make is meaningless at this point,” Van Wagenen said. “So I am not even going to attempt one. I want you all to know I feel the consequences of what I’ve done. I feel them deeply.”He pleaded guilty earlier this year to two counts of sexual abuse of a child, both involving the same victim, as part of a plea deal.Van Wagenen co-founded a Utah film festival with Robert Redford that came to be known as Sundance Film Festival. He was the Sundance Institute’s founding executive director, but hasn’t been with the organization for more than 20 years.He was a producer on the 1985 film The Trip to Bountiful, a story of an elderly woman who longs to return to her home. The film earned the late actress Geraldine Page an Academy Award.He has also worked over the years as a film instructor at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University and as a director and producer for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on a variety of projects, including temple videos.Van Wagenen resigned from his part-time instructor position at the University of Utah’s film and media arts department on Feb. 15, university spokesperson Chris Nelson said.Van Wagenen’s resignation came after a man accused Van Wagenen of molesting him as a boy in 1993. No charges were filed in that case, which was made public by a website that serves as a watchdog for The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints, widely known as the Mormon church.Van Wagenen thanked that man, who was in court Tuesday, saying it was a “blessing” that he brought “this all to light.” Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisementcenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Sterling Van Wagenen, left, who helped found the Sundance Film Festival, was sentenced on Tuesday for sexually touching a young girl on two different occasions between 2013 and 2015.

But he does say that having the cold temperature and snow at the same time is rare for this time of year.“Snow in May is not impossible in the Peace, this is not a record really yet. The temperature isn’t really a record even though it’s -5ºC. To have it that cold and snowy is what really peaked my eyebrows today.

Streaks Like Zack Greinkes Require A Ton Of Luck

Sometimes a great pitching performance is about spreading excellence over an entire season. Pedro Martinez, for instance, produced arguably the two best pitching seasons of all time, in 1999 and 2000, by consistently overwhelming hitters over the span of months and even years.1Over a two-year span, no starter has ever struck out a higher percentage of batters he faced or walked fewer opponents relative to his strikeouts than Martinez did in those seasons. His dominance could certainly be glimpsed in specific moments as well, but the magnitude of Martinez’s accomplishments is best described with broad numbers (for example, he has the lowest single-season ERA, relative to the league, in major league history).For others, though, pitching greatness manifests itself in far shorter sequences. When Orel Hershiser unanimously won the 1988 National League Cy Young, it was more about his 59 consecutive scoreless innings — which broke fellow Dodger Don Drysdale’s then-20-year-old major league record — than his season-long numbers. Although Hershiser tied Cincinnati’s Danny Jackson for the NL lead in wins, he wasn’t No. 1 in winning percentage or ERA — to say nothing of newer metrics such as fielding independent pitching (FIP), on which he lagged well behind league leaders.2It’s tough to fault Cy Young voters from 1988 for not knowing the finer points of defense-independent pitching statistics and cluster luck. But in retrospect, almost half the wins generated by the Dodgers with Hershiser on the mound could be attributed to aspects of the game relatively beyond the pitcher’s control, such as defense and stranding runners by scattering opposing hits.That year, Hershiser’s historic streak meant more than performance over the season as a whole. And the same thing might be playing out in the NL this season. With eight scoreless innings Sunday against the Nationals, another Dodger, Zack Greinke, has extended his own scoreless streak to 43⅔ innings. Greinke is one of the best pitchers in the game, but just like Hershiser, he’s being oversold by The Streak.Greinke leads the majors in ERA with a microscopic 1.30, but he’s also been the beneficiary of good fortune. Similar to Hershiser, almost half the wins generated by LA’s run-prevention corps with Greinke on the mound can be attributed to factors outside his own pitching skill. Take those wins away, and Greinke has been only the sixth-best pitcher in baseball this season. (He ranks fourth even if we just look at the past 30 days.)During Greinke’s streak, his fielders have converted into outs 82.4 percent of the balls he allowed to be put in play, a far greater rate than the league average of 70.6 percent. And it doesn’t seem to be possible to produce a historic consecutive-innings streak without benefiting from that kind of defense (and luck). Behind Hershiser, 81.4 percent of the balls in play were turned into outs, and for Drysdale, the rate was 81.6 percent.We can debate whether Greinke’s pursuit of the streak is easier or harder than Hershiser’s or Drysdale’s was. Greinke has had to throw more pitches per inning,3During the streak, 30 percent of the batters Greinke has faced either struck out or walked — both of which are typically more laborious from a pitch-count perspective than a standard plate appearance. That proportion was only 21 percent for Hershiser. but he has also spread his innings over a greater number of starts, which has allowed him to benefit from a reduced “times through the order” penalty. The bigger takeaway, however, is that these kinds of streaks — even those of the 59-inning variety — cover only a few starts, too small a sample for us to easily untangle the effects of luck and skill.Streaks are nothing if not one of baseball’s favorite preoccupations, but they also take a fundamentally long-term game and focus it on the short term. Joe DiMaggio won the 1941 AL MVP in large part because he hit safely in 56 straight games, but Ted Williams was easily the better player over the entire season.4In fact, Williams famously had the higher batting average during the span of DiMaggio’s streak! Hershiser won the Cy Young but probably wasn’t the NL’s best pitcher in 1988. And Greinke’s streak, impressive and exciting as it is, shouldn’t obscure the other fantastic pitching seasons we’re seeing across MLB this year. read more

LeBron May Already Be The Greatest Laker Of AllTime

PER and WS/48 are calculated since 1952.Source: Basketball-Reference.com 9Grant+4.0Howard22.3Howard.172 LeBron James in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform used to be the stuff of fan photoshops and NBA 2K’s franchise mode.1Usually accomplished by switching off the game’s trading AI. But now it has become reality, after the announcement Sunday night that James is signing a four-year, $153 million free-agent contract with L.A. It might be jarring at first to see James in Lakers gear this fall — but he’ll fit right in with a franchise whose destiny has always been determined by Hall of Fame talent. In fact, even among the Lakers’ many, many historical stars, James could be the best player who ever suited up for the team the first second that he steps onto a court wearing Forum blue and gold.In their 70-year history, the Lakers have won 16 NBA championships, one behind their archrival Boston Celtics for the most by any franchise in the league. And most of that success has been due to the team’s immense star power: players such as Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor … the list goes on and on. If we measure player value using a mixture of Basketball-Reference.com’s Player Efficiency Rating and Win Shares, and look back in history to 1963,2For accounting purposes, this was the first season for which we know exactly how many minutes a player split between teams if he switched teams midseason. Los Angeles has gotten nearly 1,200 total wins above replacement3Using the same replacement-level threshold as in Daniel Myers’s VORP metric. from players who either eventually ended up in the Hall of Fame or are likely to be there someday — a number that represents roughly 60 percent of the team’s total wins above replacement over that period. In each regard, only the Celtics have gotten more out of their Hall members, and the Lakers might have surpassed even Boston if we could have also included the contributions of Mikan and Vern Mikkelsen (who played before we have a precise accounting of a player’s minutes spent with each team during a season). 4O’Neal+5.3West23.1Johnson.225 1James+11.1Mikan28.5Chamberlain.248 2Johnson+7.4James28.3James.238 7Gasol+4.4Chamberlain22.8Malone.205 The Lakers’ greatest players, by the numbersWhere LeBron James ranks in career Box Plus/Minus, Player Efficiency Rating and Win Shares per 48 minutes relative to other Lakers Which teams have relied on Hall of Famers?The franchises with the most wins above replacement (WAR) from players who are currently in, or are likely to be in,* the Hall of Fame, 1963-2018 PistonsLanier • Thomas • Hill56239 Top 10 in BPMTop 10 in PERTop 10 in WS/48 WarriorsCurry • Barry • Mullin53939 * Weighting active players’ WAR by their Hall of Fame probability.WAR is calculated using a mixture of Win Shares and Player Efficiency Rating.Source: Basketball-Reference.com 76ersBarkley • Erving • Chamberlain71350 3Jabbar+5.4O’Neal26.1Jabbar.228 Thunder/SonicsPayton • Durant • Westbrook56636 FranchiseTop three HOF players by WARWAR By all HOFHOF % of total WAR LakersBryant • Jabbar • Johnson1,16558 6Bryant+4.4Johnson23.0O’Neal.208 From 1997 through 2013, the Lakers had picked up double-digit WAR from Hall of Fame players in 16 of 17 seasons, almost always managing to pair Bryant with an all-time great like an O’Neal or a Pau Gasol (who, perhaps surprisingly, has a 93 percent Hall probability according to Basketball-Reference). It was part of a pipeline that had flowed nearly uninterrupted since the days of Mikan in the 1950s. But since 2014, Los Angeles has gotten a mere 2.4 WAR from future Hall of Famers, almost all of it belonging to Gasol before he departed for the Bulls. (Apologies to Lou Williams and Jordan Hill, but they’ll probably have to pay to visit Springfield like the rest of us.)Even granting that we don’t know what the future will ultimately hold for younger prospects such as Julius Randle, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, the Lakers had never gotten fewer than 7 WAR from Hall of Famers in any five-year span since 1963 — and that dark period came from 1992 to 1996, right after Johnson abruptly retired after contracting HIV. The franchise really was never forced to confront life without an NBA legend for so long until very recently.And thanks to James, it won’t have to anymore. Our CARMELO projection system thinks LeBron will add about 12 wins to the Lakers’ tally next season. Depending on whether L.A. can also trade for Kawhi Leonard (or sign another star to pair with James), the team could see its Hall of Fame contributions be rebuilt even further. Either way, the Lakers’ pipeline of all-time talent is gushing again.Moreover, by the historical metrics, LeBron might instantly be the best player who has ever suited up for the Lakers (in terms of stats produced across a player’s entire career, not just with the Lakers). James is the NBA’s all-time career leader in Box Plus/Minus (which can be calculated going back to 1974), easily outpacing Johnson. Among fellow Lakers, he trails only Mikan in Player Efficiency Rating (ranking one slot ahead of O’Neal), and he trails only Chamberlain in Win Shares per 48 minutes (coming in one spot better than Jabbar): 5Horry+4.8Jabbar23.0West.213 JazzMalone • Stockton • Dantley55841 SpursDuncan • Robinson • Gervin73939 CelticsBird • Pierce • Parish1,21363% 10Harper+3.8Baylor21.8Bryant.171 RocketsOlajuwon • Harden • Malone68845 KnicksEwing • Frazier • Reed56339 You can make the case that Jabbar — and maybe also Chamberlain and Karl Malone, who had a cup of coffee with the Lakers when he was 40 — generated more total value in their careers than James has to date. So his case as the greatest player to ever wear a Lakers uniform is not totally open and shut. But the fact that James can even enter the argument, a day into his tenure with one of the most decorated franchises in pro sports history, is telling about his stature among NBA legends.It remains to be seen if James will be the Lakers’ lone surefire future Hall of Famer next season; whether he gets big-name help will likely determine L.A.’s viability as a true threat to the Golden State Warriors’ supremacy right away. Whatever happens, though, James has finally restored to the Lakers the one resource they’ve scarcely been able to live without over the years: legendary talent. read more

Another Xbox 180 Alwayson Kinect no longer mandatory

first_imgIn what is hilarious, though completely expected news (by now), Microsoft has pulled yet another Xbox 180: the mandatory, always plugged-in Kinect is no longer mandatory. You can shove that thing in a drawer if you want, and never feel weird when you aren’t wearing pants in your living room like we all know you do.Microsoft already stated that the Kinect doesn’t have to be powered on, but at that time, it was still required to be plugged into the Xbox One. This, of course, remains a little nerve-racking. The paranoid among us suggest that the Kinect never actually shuts off, and Microsoft could spy on us in our undies. Speaking with IGN, Xbox vice president Marc Whitten confirmed that the Xbox One will no longer require the Kinect to be plugged into the console. Yes, another Xbox One reversal.If you end up living in a constant cycle of shutting off and turning on your Kinect and simply can’t remember what state the sensor is in anymore, the Xbox One will prompt you to turn on the Kinect whenever a feature requires it.So, since the Xbox One’s reveal not too long ago, Microsoft has reversed just about every single policy of which the public wasn’t fond. From the always-online policy, to not allowing developers to self-publish titles, and now the mandatory Kinect, Microsoft pulled so many 180s we aren’t quite sure which direction the company is facing anymore.Now, if only Microsoft would do something about that $500 price tag.last_img read more

Two leading charities Oxfam Ireland and GOAL enter into merger negotiations

GOAL’s action-oriented approach and first responder ethos is core to their DNA and has saved millions of lives.Oxfam’s approach of practical action and people-led response, challenging the structures and systems that keep people locked in poverty, has led to real change across the world. Bringing our organisations together will increase our scale, which means we can deliver greater impact for people in poverty and in crisis.Commenting on the proposed merger, GOAL general manager Celine Fitzgerald said, “In looking to its future, GOAL has assessed the merits of continuing as a standalone entity or achieving a step change in scale and impact in the delivery of humanitarian support and advocacy.“A merger with Oxfam would create a strong organisation in Ireland with a true global reach, saving and changing the lives of millions of the poorest and most vulnerable people on our planet for the better.”According to one source, GOAL started looking at its options last autumn and began talking to Oxfam which has since progressed into formal negotiations.If the merger is to go ahead both organisations will continue with their respective aid plans while ‘assessing how to combine the best of both organisations to increase the overall reach and impact of resources and programmes.’Clarken added, “As we begin a robust due diligence exercise and examine the possibility of a merger over the coming weeks, I’d like to assure our donors and supporters that we will continue with our life-saving and life-changing work as normal.”Last month, GOAL announced 25 redundancies across its office in Dublin and London. The charity said at the time that the redundancies were necessary due to a ‘tighter funding environment’ while aiming to prioritise their relief efforts.Both organisations have a history of working in Ireland. This year, GOAL is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Ireland and Oxfam has been operating in Ireland since the 1950s.It is believed that if the merger is to go ahead, the process could take up to a year to complete.READ: ‘We’ll be here as long as it takes’: Striking Tesco workers say they’re in it for the long haulREAD: Proposal to redraw Waterford – Kilkenny boundary ‘will leave a very bitter taste’ Two leading charities, Oxfam Ireland and GOAL, enter into merger negotiations If the merger goes ahead the new global development agency named Oxfam Goal will be based in Ireland http://jrnl.ie/3239799 Feb 14th 2017, 7:04 PM last_img read more

Wait times have doubled- even tripled in some parts of California. Getting there early to avoid the lines didn’t help much Monday morning.Shortly after opening their doors, the Department of Motor Vehicles in El Cajon temporarily closed up shop for part of the morning due to technical difficulties. Some people turned around and left. Others didn’t want to call it quits.It’s probably not the way you want to start your Monday. Folks woke up at the break of dawn to beat the long lines at the DMV Monday morning.“The line is really far away already,” said Julea Osorno, Resident of El Cajon.“The DMV is always frustrating because of it’s archaic system,” said Robert Velaso, Resident of Santee. “Eventually they’re going to catch up with the times.”Their strategy was to get there earlier than the next person, like Robert Velaso and his son. They showed up at 9:15 a.m. for a 10:30 a.m. appointment.“Expect the unexpected and be patient,” said Velaso.Things at the DMV took an unexpected turn. This time it was not the lines. It was the system.“They just said the system got shut down completely and they said we have to wait,” said Alex Torres, Resident of El Cajon. “It was pretty horrible.”The DMV said multiple DMV field offices, including the El Cajon branch, experienced technical difficulties that affected customer transactions. Customers said the DMV stopped letting anyone in at around 8:30 this morning.The people waiting in line thought the worst.“I was mad because I wanted to take my written test and I studied really hard for it, so I was bummed,” said Karissa Kaye, Resident of East County. “I thought they weren’t going to let me in.”“When you take a day off of work, you want to take care of the one thing you needed to do,” said Velaso.Some people turned around and left because they thought the DMV was calling it a day.Others didn’t give up. They had every intention of waiting it out, no matter how long it took.“We don’t have a choice,” said Osorno. “We needed the license or car renewal, so you know, whatever we have to do in this place, we don’t have a choice.”“If it wasn’t back up when we came, it would have been a bummer because I would have had to take another day off this week, but luckily we got everything done,” said Velaso.The office in El Cajon was back up and running a few hours later by 10 a.m. The people walking out of the DMV that had the chance to take care of business said it was well worth the wait.“We came in there and took his test, took a picture,” said Velaso. “This was the quickest the DMV has ever been. Ever.”Some of the field offices in San Diego County were also impacted. This includes the field offices in Rancho San Diego, San Diego Normal, San Marcos and the San Marcos Industry Business Center.Folks with the DMV apologized for any inconvenience this may have caused customers and they appreciated their patience. They said they’re still looking into the cause, but believe this was an isolated incident.

TEMPE — Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians

first_img TEMPE — Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians meets the media the day after every game. This week, after a 44-6 season finale againts the Los Angeles Rams, he met with the media as the team cleaned out the locker room.Here in this space, with help from the Cardinals’ media relations staff, we’ll highlight some of the most notable quotes from his session.He began with an opening statement.“This is always a tough day, because when it comes to an end it comes to an end, and when you’re not putting a ring on your finger, saying goodbye to some players is hard. Obviously you never have the same team back. This team was extremely fun to coach because they came to work every day and I never questioned their effort and intensity in which they practiced and prepared. We just didn’t play well enough in five ball games, the last five minutes in those games, and that stopped us in playing in the rest of this tournament. We will go back and research why we didn’t play well in those five minutes that cost us games that took us out of the playoffs. That will be the research we do as a coaching staff – if we asked them to do things that they couldn’t do too much, why we weren’t successful, because we had been successful in those scenarios for two to three years. Was it the personnel? Was it scheme? What it all was and we will evaluate every single situation and try to improve it. I have all the faith in the world in Steve Keim that we will have a heck of a roster. We will start building all of that soon. Re-signing guys, hopefully re-signing guys that we want back under contract and we will move on. Great news on David Johnson – no surgery. There is no tendon damage, just a MCL sprain. Very similar to Tony Jefferson, 6-8 weeks just rest and rehab but no surgery. That’s great news.” On his health:“Probably as healthy as I’ve been. Hopefully I don’t get sick. I’ve been doing a lot of work with a couple different doctors and it seems to be working. I’m going to be really pissed if I can’t play golf, and my wife will be too, because I’ll drive her nuts.On if there is concern about Tyrann Mathieu’s injury issues:“No. The second ACL was a freaky one, because he had that year to train. I expect, and he’s already started training like a wild man, that he’ll come back to that form. Freak injuries are freak injuries. Both his ACLs – one was contact, the other was non-contact. The rest of it, he knows how to take care of himself.”On Mathieu’s shoulder injury:“Just one of those things.”On if D.J. Humphries projects as a left tackle long-term:“He can be, yes. Whether he is, we’ll wait and see, but he can be for sure.”On how he feels about their offensive line depth going forward given all the reconfigurations this season:“That’s the nice thing. We found some guys that we think can play. Actually, the last drive we had Cole Toner and Givens Price out there on the left side. I’m really excited about both those young guys. A nice camp, for those 7, 8, 9 spots, it will be great competition – (John) Wetzel proving he can be a solid contributor, Boehm did a good job at guard. The pieces are in there. It will just be great competition, because the core guys are there.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “I’m not in it. That’s a strictly personal thing for Larry to decide. Does he want to continue to be the warrior that he is, how his body feels, does he want to continue to train and do all of those things to come back and try to get that championship? Obviously I have my fingers crossed that he does, but there’s nothing I can do to be a part of that decision.”On what his gut tells him about that decision:“I have never been in this situation so I really don’t have a gut feeling about it.”On reports saying he has health issues:“My shoulder that Larry (Fitzgerald) screwed up. I just got it injected and will see if I have surgery on it.”On if Fitzgerald will pay for his surgery:“Oh, he’s going to pay. If I have to have surgery, he’s going to pay.”On reports of the Jaguars wanting to interview Harold Goodwin for the head coach position and if there are any other teams:“Buffalo and Los Angeles. We wish him well.”On if this season is frustrating because so many things went right, like the pass rush:“That’s the frustrating part, we set some things out like the pass rush and we fixed it. Steve (Keim) did a great job of getting Chandler (Jones), and Markus (Golden) improved, so that’s the frustrating part not to win those five close ball games.” On if they need to improve the interior offensive line:“No, I think through all the injuries we’ve developed some pretty good depth. These guys that have played the last few weeks, I’ve been very pleased with.”On the close games they lost and if that had anything to do with overconfidence or not turning the page on last year:“I think a lot of it goes back to the New England game. Had we won the game like we should have, with the field goal, I think the whole season is different. Why we didn’t finish the Ram win? The first two losses at home set us way back for the season, because you had to fight from the back end of the hole the rest of the way. To have the lead and fumble the ball going in for the clincher, and then not stopping them – those two five-minute scenarios; we did a great job in the two-minute drill against New England’s defense to put us in the situation to win the game like we had in years past. We didn’t win it. That set a little bit of ‘are we good enough?’ Then the Ram loss, I think maybe everybody started pressing a little bit more. Those will be the critical areas of games lost. The Miami one, that was different because of the rain and everything else, but that was another game that we should have won.” On if Deone Bucannon could move back to safety:“No, Buc’s got his spot. He’s a very unique player. Very few guys can do what he does. We can always play him at safety in a role, but to take him out of being the disruptor he is up front, I don’t think would be good for us.”On if Bucannon was battling injury most of the season:“Yeah, that ankle – that’s why we didn’t know if he’d have to have surgery, because it was chronic. But, now it looks like it’s healing itself better.”On how he would feel about using the franchise tag:“In a heartbeat on the right guy. Number 55. Not to mention any names.”On their draft class this season:“I think they all are going to be fine. Robert (Nkemdiche), that ankle has bothered him all year. He fought through it, and then again he re-injured it the other day. It looks like it will heal itself in time, but I think he’s going to be a heck of a player. Brandon (Williams) is going to be a heck of a player. Our number two choice is really good – 55. Evan (Boehm), the whole class, Harlan (Miller), he found a spot. That was a great play he made coming out of the middle to read that halfback pass.”On if Miller could move to safety: On how he would describe David Johnson’s season:“It’s rare. What he did – it was a shame because you knew he was going to get his 100 easily. But you knew that an injury was probably going to stop the streak, and just very happy that it’s not a serious one.”On what David Johnson’s upside is from here:“Sky is the limit. I mean, 200-yard games every week. I’m serious. He’s capable.”On what it means to him to see this team respond in the final two games:“It told me that we have the core values in our locker room that it takes to succeed and go forward. A lot of teams you saw the last two weeks, they’re already making vacation plans. These guys, they want to go back to work. It’s a shame that it came down to that, but we’re really proud of the way that, especially guys that stepped up. Sio Moore came here three weeks ago and he had 13 tackles against Seattle. Those guys that stepped in, Harlan Miller, all the young kids, (Evan) Boehm, stepped up and played winning football against two division teams that were pretty solid.”On what bothered him most about the underachievement this year:“The fact that we didn’t overcome the injuries that we should have, and that we have in the past. Next man up didn’t necessarily do his job good enough the first week.” “The guys we have – Coop (Marcus Cooper) is great. I think Coop’s a hell of a player. I think Brandon’s going to be. Those guys will fight it out if we get Coop signed.” On if he anticipates changes in his coaching staff aside from head coaching opportunities:“We will have everybody back. They are the same coaching staff that won all of those games. I’m just hoping that Goody (Harold Goodwin) gets a job, but I’m not anticipating any changes.”On if there is a priority when it comes to resigning free agents like Chandler Jones, Calais Campbell and Tony Jefferson:“We’ll just wait and see. Hopefully we get them all back. The dollars will have to add up with the cap. That’s Steve (Keim) and Mike’s (Disner) job, and they do a great job with it. So we’ve already prioritized our list and we will try to get as many of those guys as possible.”On if Harold Goodwin does get a job who takes over that role:“We’ll wait and see.”On Calais Campbell’s season:“I thought it was very solid, one of his better ones, especially the last half of the season. I thought he really benefited from Chandler (Jones) and Markus (Golden).”On Chandler Jones, Markus Golden and the pass rush:“That’s exactly what we set out to do was create a pass rush from the edge. Chandler’s not going anywhere because if we have to, we will franchise him. Hopefully we will get it all done and be able to move on.” On if he feels the team core is still intact:“There is no doubt. Some of that depends on retirement. We’ll get those questions answered in the near future. I think the core is here and there is no doubt that we had high expectations coming into this year with the roster we had. Those expectations will never change. We’ll set our goal to win a championship next year like we always do.”On if he treats this season like an anomaly:“Yeah because the games we lost were the games we always won. Win them at the end, win close games. I think we did it better than anybody in the league over the last couple of years, and this year we didn’t. Whether it was make a completion, make a kick, get off the field defensively, whatever it was in those games, those one-score games that we lost.”On if it is perplexing because he can’t put a finger on what happened:“If you can put a finger on an individual, you replace him. If you can put a finger on something, you fix it right away. But this was different scenarios each week and that’s why this will be fun as a coaching staff to go back and review it all. Hopefully it’s things that we can correct.”On if he will play a role in Larry Fitzgerald’s decision: Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians yells at side judge Scott Novak (1) 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) “Now he’s got good position flexibility, so that bodes well for his future.”On if Nkemdiche’s season was disappointing:“No, because it was going to be hard for him anyway. Unless there was a major injury to Frostee (Rucker), Calais (Campbell) or Corey (Peters), he was going to be a role player. I think his time will come quickly. Everybody expects these guys to be world beaters because they’re number one draft picks. It ain’t the same anymore.”On Rodney Gunter:“Rodney had a great game in Seattle. He’s been a physical presence all year. His snaps, 16-20 a game, easily will go to 40 and you’re not going to miss anything.”On Markus Golden and what he’s evolved into:“Exactly what we thought. We drafted him because of his motor, his energy. That’s the type of guys we want in our locker room. It doesn’t surprise me at all.”On the untapped talent they have in Elijhaa Penny:“That’s another one I can’t wait to see, because he became a pretty good special teams player and could fill a role as a big back. He’s got good hands. He’s done a great job on our scout team all year, so he’s got a real good future.”On the priority of finding someone for the cornerback spot opposite Patrick Peterson: Top Stories Comments   Share   On if anybody needs offseason surgery:“I haven’t gotten a doctor’s report. They’re still checking out with the doctors right now.”On Chandler Catanzaro going forward:“We’ll wait and see. Again, a lot of it’s going to be contractual. I forget what his tender would be. That’s all up to Steve. He’s a very talented young guy. Whether he’s here or not, we’ll see.”On his consistency being something Catanzaro can improve:“You would think so. When looking at kickers, the great ones I’ve been around, Nick Lowery and Phil Dawson, all those guys, they had really struggled early. Most kickers do, but then they hit a spell where it’s automatic.”On what goes into the decision at left tackle next year:“We’re very fortunate. We have two. It’s just who plays left and who plays right. We’ll make those decisions later. Watching Jared (Veldheer) rehab and see where he’s at rehab-wise, but we’re very fortunate we have two of them.”On if A.Q. Shipley showed enough to be the center going forward:“Oh, yeah. I would love to have A.Q. back because he brings that mental toughness and physicality that you want. He comes back, he’s going to fight with Evan (Boehm), and Evan could be our starting right guard. We’ll wait and see how that all plays out.” On if he feels the personnel is there and he’s not worried about needing an infusion of talent:“Talent’s not the issue. Keeping them all healthy, that’s a different story. Losing Evan Mathis hurt, because we weren’t quite ready. Then losing Jared, those two were huge hits offensively. John Brown’s illness was a huge hit; J.J.’s (Nelson) broken thumb, because we lost so much speed early in the season. John’s illness hadn’t shown itself on what it was, but you knew there was some problem because he didn’t have the gear when the ball was in the air that he’s always had.”On if John Brown is still exploring how to handle his illness this offseason:“Yeah, to find that gear. He’s had a couple balls thrown deep that he’s always had that catch-up speed to go get it. That’s not there right now.”On his feelings on the WR position:“They played extremely well down the stretch. Jeremy Ross comes in and does a hell of a job. That’s the one position to me that is very easy to fix. Now, is there a Fitz laying out there? No, but there are some very capable guys that could come fit in our offense.”On Clemson WR Mike Williams being a possible fit:“Well, you’re going to take a high draft choice; I don’t think it’s going to be a wideout.” On if he feels an obligation to find Carson Palmer’s heir:“I hope to. That will be one of our main objectives in the offseason is to make sure the franchise isn’t in the situation it was after Kurt (Warner), that the next guy is here and ready to roll.”On what he thinks of this year’s crop of quarterbacks:“Really haven’t studied them at all; just talked to Steve (Keim) on the plane about who the scouts have ranked and start watching them in a couple weeks. I’ll go down to the Senior Bowl and start looking at all of them.”On if he feels good about their depth at corner:“Marcus (Cooper) should’ve had another interception yesterday. He got Pro Bowl nominations so that’s pretty damn good. I don’t know if you can get better unless you’re a starter in the Pro Bowl. Brandon (Williams) is going to be a hell of a player. I think we have more than enough guys back there.”On if Justin Bethel can be in the mix as well:“I think Justin found his spot inside. He played really well in the nickel and we’ll have to see if we can create a nickel or dime situation. He’s done it in the past when Tyrann Mathieu is the nickel and he’s had tight ends or somebody else.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more

Mafuru deflects blame defends FBME shareholders

first_imgLawrence Mafuru, the person appointed by Tanzanian authorities as statutory manager at FBME Bank and is considered uncooperative in Cyprus, blamed the Central Bank of Cyprus for the delay in refunding depositors, and the loss of value.“The whole problem with FBME Bank is a direct consequence of the CBC’s (Central Bank of Cyprus’s) rushed, unilateral and not well-thought out decisions which resulted in wrong actions that are now legally challenged in the courts both in Cyprus and Europe,” Mafuru said in an emailed letter to the Cyprus Mail on Thursday. “These actions victimised the bank prematurely and are making it very difficult to undertake any orderly process of managing the outcome”.The Taznania-based FBME Bank, which US authorities described almost three years ago as of primary money laundering concern and barred US banks from opening or maintaining correspondent accounts with it -effectively banning it from carrying out transactions in US dollars-,carried out the bulk of its operations mainly through its branch in Nicosia. The Central Bank of Cyprus revoked the licence of its Cyprus branch and fined the bank €1.2m in 2015 for failing to comply with anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules.In April last year, the Central Bank of Cyprus which initially placed the bank under administration and later under resolution, triggered the deposits guarantee scheme which allows depositors to receive up to €100,000 from their account at FBME. So far, the Central Bank of Cyprus which received 1,200 applications out of 6,500 customers, satisfied up to 700 applications. Total customer deposits are estimated at up to €1.4bn.The owners of FBME, the Lebanese brothers Ayoub Farid Saab and Fadi Michel Saab deny all money laundering claims and resorted to an arbitration court in Paris seeking up to €500m in compensation from the Republic of Cyprus. The Nicosia court is expected to decide within the next weeks or months on the appointment of a liquidator.“The fact remains that FBME should never have been placed under resolution and that the CBC acted without informing the bank or the Home Regulator – Tanzania,” Mafuru continued. “It then proceeded to make decisions for the funds of the bank forcing the statutory manager to react to protect the interests of the bank, and all its depositors”.The Cyprus branch, he continued, “has no legal personality, and can thus own no assets”.Mafuru, who though he is considered a person with political connections, in December lost his job as head of the Tanzanian Treasury Registry, a body entrusted with all state investments in companies and corporations, and is also involved in a legal battle facing a probable prison term, said that the Central Bank of Cyprus should explain “why after two years of resolution the financial position of the Bank is significantly worse”.Mafuru, in line with the defence of the shareholders, raised questions about funds “wasted on professional fees,” the necessity of appointing a special administrator, why the Central Bank of Cyprus waited until last April to trigger the deposits guarantee scheme instead of doing so in 2014 or declined to accept a plan proposed by FBME to repay depositors.The Cyprus Business Mail understands that Mafuru was referring to an idea tabled by the Saab brothers in late 2015 proposing the migration of deposits to Tanzania. “FBME Bank Ltd is in a position to repay its depositors in a structured manner and has been hampered from the start because of the erratic and unreasonable behaviour of the Central Bank of Cyprus,” he said.Cypriot officials often complained in the past about Mafuru’s reluctance to cooperate with Cypriot authorities to resolve the situation saying that he does not even respond to their letters.“If there is someone who’s not cooperating that’s Mafuru who is not acting in the best interest of customers,” special administrator Chris Iacovides said in a telephone interview. “He acts with ulterior motives”.A Central Bank of Cyprus official contacted by the Cyprus Business Mail declined to comment.“The mishandling of this affair has been so extensive that the questions are increasing by the day,” Mafuru said adding that he will refrain from further comments citing pending procedures in various jurisdictions. In line with that, he did not respond to a question about when was the last time he had communicated with Cypriot authorities.The Cyprus Business Mail understands that should Mafuru remain uncooperative, in case the Nicosia district court does rule in favour of allowing FBME’s liquidation, the liquidator will be in position to satisfy claims worth several hundred million euros, only a fraction of the estimated up to €1.4bn in customer deposits. In that case, only Cypriot assets which include inter alia land and buildings as well as Cypriot government bonds will be liquated to compensate depositors.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
