New literary prize for Indigenous writers to offer 25K in awards

first_imgAdvertisement It’s the result of a crowdfunding campaign that emerged this summer after an editorial in Write magazine argued in favour of “cultural appropriation.” They say jurors will include Indigenous writers Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, Virginia Pesemapeo Bordeleau, Rachel Qitsualik-Tinsley, Gregory Scofield and Richard Van Camp, as well as poet Rodney Saint-Eloi and CBC Radio personality Shelagh Rogers.

Onreserve election reform launched

first_imgAPTN National NewsHalifax–The federal government took its first steps Friday toward overhauling on-reserve elections.Indian Affairs Minister John Duncan announced in Halifax that two First Nations organizations would begin consultations across the country and lay the groundwork for the creation of opt-in federal legislation to reform reserve elections.Duncan made the announcement along with representatives from the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs (APC) and the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC).“This reform will help First Nations create the political stability they need to establish solid business investments, practice long-term planning, and build relationships that will increase economic development for First Nations,” said Duncan, in a statement.The existing electoral system under the Indian Act has faced widespread criticism from First Nations community members who say it is too easy to manipulate the results.Accusations of vote buying and ballot tampering are widespread across the country. There are also widespread concerns around the appeals process, the existing two year length of terms and a lack of defined penalties for election infractions.“Our joint initiative…is ‘paving new ground’ by making the necessary changes to the existing election system which will support the stability of leadership, long-term planning and increased accountability,” said New Brunswick Chief Candice Paul, co-chair of the congress, in the statement.“The ultimate goal of all First Nations is to be self-sustaining and self-governing,” said Grand Chief Ron Evans, who leads the AMC.There are currently 247 First Nations that hold Indian Act elections, 338 First Nations that use a custom or community-designed election process, and 29 First Nations that follow rules set out in their self-government agreements.The announcement comes the same day a Conservative MP tabled a private members bill to make all chief and band council salaries public.last_img read more


Elder inspired mom to go on Twitter to get kids out of

first_img“They tried to quiet me by saying that they were going to sue me, charge me with a $50,000 fine and two years in jail,” Twitter Mom said.The penalties apply to news organizations like APTN, too. That’s why we can’t publish her real name or show her face.Her friend, artist and Indigenous rights activist Christie Belcourt, can’t believe the family was ripped apart.“She’s a victim of domestic violence. CFS should have supported her and her kids to be together during that time,” she said.“Her story is a lot of people’s story. It’s also one of the worst cases that I’ve ever heard.”Twitter Mom shared those details with the online world, too, tweeting out how she and her son were abused by her husband and the boys’ father but social workers blamed her and seized the children when police questioned her.She says she cut off contact with the father and hasn’t seen him since.And she’s been trying to get the boys back the entire time.Support for her is strong on Twitter where her posts are retweeted thousands of times. People are also donating money to her legal defence fund.She says she’s showing people how child welfare really operates.“I feel that I’m a voice for a lot of women who can’t speak,” she said.“I feel as if I’m able to be a voice on Twitter because on Twitter I have a huge audience who’s really paying attention to this issue.”However, the government and agencies involved declined to comment, citing the privacy law.kmartens@aptn.ca Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsShe can be fined or jailed or both, but a woman we’re calling “Twitter Mom” says it’s worth the risk.“I met with an elder once and he had told me to share my story in the open,” she said. “And from there it went forward.”Now, the elder didn’t say go public on social media, but that’s what Twitter Mom is doing.She’s sharing pictures of her home, business and children, along with details of her dealings with two child welfare agencies that have custody of her sons.The information is all in a series of tweets she hopes will pressure social workers to reunite her family.“Pretty much the agency is saying that I’m not co-operating,” she said in an interview.“But I find how can you co-operate with somebody who has had your kids for 10 years?”How her children wound up in care and everything she has done to free them is now on Twitter.It’s something the agencies, which are protected by a powerful privacy law, don’t like.last_img read more


Rival groups clash in Behala over supply of building materials several injured

first_imgKolkata: Several persons got injured after two groups got involved in a clash over supply of building materials at Prafulla Sen Colony in Behala on Sunday night.Locals claimed that at least seven persons were injured and two of them reportedly sustained major injuries. The locals also alleged that during the scuffle someone had fired a shot but no one was hit by the bullet. According to locals, the two groups were involved in supplying building materials in the area and they often used to get involved in altercations and scuffles over the same. Recently, one of the group’s leader, identified as Satyajit Sarkar, allegedly attacked his rival group’s members.

International Day spotlights need for more women in UN peacekeeping

29 May 2009The United Nations is marking the annual International Day of Peacekeepers by honouring the brave troops, police and civilians who serve in some of the most difficult places around the world, and by stressing the unique role played by women and the need to deploy more of them. This year’s commemoration comes at a time when the services of UN peacekeepers are in greater demand than ever. Deployment is at a record high, with more than 113,000 peacekeepers serving in 18 operations on four continents. Yet, “there are still far too few women peacekeepers,” as Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noted in his message for the Day, pointing out that women make up only 8 per cent of the UN police and 2 per cent of its military personnel.“We have a long way to go both with the military and the police,” Susana Malcorra, Under-Secretary-General for Field Support and one of the UN’s senior female officials, told a news conference in New York.She stressed the importance of women in the UN’s peacekeeping activities, which in many cases also involve programmes related to peacebuilding, reconstruction and reconciliation.Often, female blue helmets, human rights monitors and other mission staff can better communicate with local women, generating a greater sense of security, as in the case the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where rape has been used as a weapon of war and UN agencies estimate that 200,000 women and girls have been assaulted over the past 12 years.Serena Tiberia, a human rights officer with the UN peacekeeping mission there, known as MONUC, said that she experiences easier access to victims, as a woman. She added that female UN staff can also serve as models of women’s empowerment. “I think the fact of seeing women working [with the UN], driving cars and managing teams, it can be a good example for Congolese society,” she said. “Women can care about the family, but they can also study, they can also work, they can also do other things. I think reinforcing the role of women within the UN system, from the lowest to the highest level, could definitely serve as an example for the society we work with.”India was among the first to answer the call for more women personnel with the deployment in 2007 of an all-female Formed Police Unit (FPU) – comprising police officers who have received specialized training in high-risk operations and managing crowds – to the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).That subsequently led to a marked increase in women applicants to the West African country’s national police force.UNMIL chief Ellen Margrethe Løj, the only female currently heading a UN peacekeeping mission, highlighted the important impact of the Indian police officers on the local society, during a medal ceremony last year in the capital, Monrovia.“You have made a real difference, not only to us in UNMIL, but to a cross-section of Liberians, especially women and girls. Your presence in Liberia has demonstrated that women can play and have an increasingly crucial role in the establishment of the rule of law in post-conflict countries,” she stated.As noted by the Secretary-General, UN peacekeepers often face insecurity, disease and violence on a daily basis while working to make a tangible difference in the lives of many in some of most difficult and inhospitable places around the world. “Peacekeeping is tough and it means spending a lot of time away from your family,” said Bokani Hart, who heads MONUC’s civil affairs unit. The Zimbabwean native added that the UN could look at issues such as conditions of service, and help with work/life balance. At the same time, the job was not without its advantages, she said. “It’s very, very interesting work. Every day is different. I come into work and I’m juggling 101 different issues and that’9s what I love about my job.”Ms. Hart said her decision to work with UN peacekeeping has to do with her own personal history. “I spent the first 15 years of my life as a refugee and I’ve always been pulled to this kind of work. So I have sort of a personal attachment to my UN peacekeeping job, and I’m very proud to call myself a UN peacekeeper.”She added that while there are many women working in the UN system, there could be more, especially in decision-making positions. “If we put our own house in order, then we could be a very good example to wider Congolese society,” she noted. The UN is working to increase the number of women in senior positions at Headquarters and in field missions, according to DPKO. “We have done a lot but we need to do a great deal more,” UN peacekeeping chief Alain Le Roy said, noting that women peacekeepers make a critical contribution in areas such as providing security, reforming State institutions and supporting political processes, and their work encourages others to participate in local peace processes.General Assembly President Miguel D’Escoto, in his message for the Day, stressed that peacekeepers do not just carry out their mandated tasks. “They create a lasting legacy by exemplifying how military and police can engage in humanitarian work while interacting respectfully with civil society.” From New York to Naqoura, Darfur to Dili, the Day is being marked at UN offices around the world with a range of events, including ceremonies to honour those who paid the ultimate price in the service of peace. In 2008, 132 peacekeepers – including 10 women – lost their lives, whether through attacks, illnesses or accidents – one of the highest one-year totals in the history of the Organization. “The legacy of these men and women lives on. It lives on in what they did for the people of the countries in which they served. It lives on in the example they set for all of us as talented, dedicated professionals,” Mr. Ban said at the wreath-laying ceremony in New York.The Secretary-General also presided over the awarding of the Dag Hammarskjöld Medals, which are given posthumously to the military, police and civilian personnel who lost their lives last year. He said he hoped the Medals – named for the former UN Secretary-General, who himself died on a peace mission to the Congo – “can serve as a tangible symbol of our sincere condolences as well as our immense gratitude for their sacrifice.”Designated by the General Assembly in 2002, the International Day is observed on 29 May, the date in 1948 when the first UN peacekeeping mission, the UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), began operations in Palestine. read more

Trudeau seeks to right his campaign in Toronto as Scheer heads to

OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau pushed aside Friday global mockery of his decisions years ago to dress in blackface, saying he’s focused on apologizing to Canadians — including his rival, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh.But images of the three times he chose to put on black- or brownface for costume events continued to flash around the world, reaching even the White House.U.S. President Donald Trump’s reaction summed up how the incidents have surprised people accustomed to seeing Trudeau as a champion of inclusivity and diversity, raising questions about whether that brand is forever tarnished.“I was hoping I wouldn’t be asked that question. … Justin. I’m surprised and I was more surprised when I saw the number of times and I’ve always had a good relationship with Justin. I just don’t know what to tell you. I was surprised by it, actually,” Trump said.Trudeau apologized profusely for the third day in a row for the incidents — one from his teens, one from his time as a whitewater rafting guide in his 20s and one when he was a teacher at a Vancouver private school. He said they were mistakes, and he did not understand at the time how racist wearing black- or brownface is.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Former Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne, a Liberal, said she’s worried that the apology will fall on deaf ears around the world.“People in other countries don’t have the benefit or the access or the interest in, quite frankly, the day-to-day machinations of Canadian politics so they don’t know him as well as we do,” she said.“So they kind of had him on this pedestal, which was unrealistic and ridiculous, and now he’s fallen off that pedestal and so there’s almost even more of an oversimplification on the international stage: he was perfect and now he’s the devil.”Since the first photo emerged Wednesday night, Trudeau has been calling members of his cabinet, candidates and community leaders to try to make amends. In turn, all day Thursday, many of them were speaking out publicly, if a tad cautiously, in support of their leader.On Friday, the day after Trudeau was the butt of late-night TV jokes in the U.S. and shocked headlines around the world, Chrystia Freeland took a turn.As Trudeau’s foreign affairs minister, she has had the ears of many influential leaders and their aides around the globe.Freeland said she was troubled and disappointed by the images, calling racism and intolerance unacceptable. But she said she accepts his apology and commitment to do better.“The prime minister continues to have my full and unwavering support,” she said in the statement posted to Twitter.Trudeau said he’d also like to speak to the NDP’s Singh, who has condemned the images he saw as personally hurtful.“I will be apologizing to him personally as a racialized Canadian,” Trudeau said Friday at an event in Toronto.“As I have been apologizing to Canadians who have suffered discrimination and intolerance their entire lives in ways some of us like me have never had to experience on a daily basis.”Singh said he is open to having a private conversation with the Liberal leader, declining to disclose what he’d say.Where he wants to keep the focus, Singh said, is on all of the Canadians who’ve been hurt by what Trudeau did.“I’ve spoken with young people who tell me that if the prime minister can mock their reality, can mock their struggles, then what’s to stop other people from saying ‘if the prime minister can make fun of people for what they’re going through, why can’t I?’,” Singh said at an event in Windsor, Ont.The incidents made the front pages of news websites around the globe. Trudeau attracted scorn as well from prominent civil-rights advocates in the U.S., a country that has grappled with its own cases of prominent politicians having been found to have, or admitting to have, worn blackface.Trump has in the past called for Democrats outed for wearing blackface to resign, but at the same time as he supported Republicans caught in similar scandals.The U.S. has always viewed Canada as being a bit smug on issues of diversity and inclusion, said Chris Sands, director of the Center for Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins University, based in Washington, D.C.In Trump’s eyes, this might knock Trudeau down a peg, he said.“I think this will make Trudeau look like he’s just another liberal-left opponent of Trump who preaches all the right things about minorities and diversity but is secretly not sensitive at all,” Sands said.Trudeau took a small jab at the U.S. Friday, though, in announcing his party’s marquee policy on gun control, picking up on a theme in the contentious debate in that country.Those in favour of stronger gun regulation in the U.S. have in recent years argued that it is no longer enough for politicians to respond to mass shootings by saying their “thoughts and prayers” are with the victims.And that was how Trudeau styled his campaign pledge Friday to ban assault rifles and institute stricter regulations on who can buy guns and import ammunition.“Thoughts and prayers aren’t going to cut it,” Trudeau said.He also promised to allow municipalities the right to ban handguns, a policy also advocated by the NDP.That party was shopping its policy on expanding public coverage for drugs and dental care on the campaign trail Friday, while Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was also campaigning on the health-care theme, pledging $1.5 billion to buy new medical imaging equipment for facilities across the country.The Conservatives had been behind the release of a brief video documenting Trudeau wearing blackface. Their campaign received the clip and turned it over to Global News. The other two images were given directly to the media.Scheer said Friday he’s not aware of the existence of any more photos or videos. Trudeau has said he won’t say definitively there aren’t any, as he doesn’t necessarily remember everything.While Trudeau talked of a gun ban, Green Leader Elizabeth May promised a ban of her own — on the kinds of cars the vast majority of people drive. A ban on sales of new internal-combustion engine passenger vehicles by 2030 is part of her party’s broader transportation strategy unveiled Friday, which seeks to get to zero-carbon transportation in Canada.People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier is trying to hold onto his own seat in Quebec and spent most of Friday campaigning there, though he has a swing to Western Canada next week.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 20, 2019.–With files from Allison Jones in Toronto read more

12 challenges men face that women just dont understand

first_imgLAST NIGHT, WE brought you some of the challenges women face that men will never understand, so tonight we thought it would be only fair to acknowledge the pain of the other side.For they too suffer at the hands of biology and this cruel cruel world.After much research, here are 12 challenges men face that women just don’t understand.Having to wear suits in hot weatherGoing to a formal occasion on a hot day?  As a woman, you can pop on a light dress and you’ll probably be alright.As a man, you’ll be forced to wear a suit and then spend the day afraid to take off your jacket because of the gargantuan sweat patches that now consume most of your shirt.TesticlesWomen will never ever understand what it’s like to get kicked in these guys.  They will just never understand.As for the itching at times when a good scratch is not an option?  A nightmare.SpotsAll humans get spots, but most men do not feel they have the option to cover them up with makeup.It’s a cruel, cruel world.Not getting complimentsWomen compliment each other all the time, and frequently expect their men to compliment them too.Guys?  Sure you’re lucky if a mate says he likes your runners.  Take it from us, men, you’re bleedin’ gorgeous.Inconvenient erectionsUncomfortable and beyond your control.  No woman can even imagine what that’s like.Being expected to make the first move Yes, dynamics have changed somewhat over the past fifty years, but the bulk of the initial activity in relationships is still expected to be done my men.And let’s be real, that ain’t easy.Nipple chafing while runningIf you’re a running woman, you’ve probably got a sports bra protecting your delicate nipples.Men?  They learn about nipple coverage the hard way.  Frequently by bleeding through their t-shirts.Restricted clothing optionsMany men are happy to spend the bulk of their life wearing jeans and a t-shirt, or a suit.  However, there are some who would love to have the full range of colour and style that women have to choose from.Guys who wish they could occasionally throw on a David Beckham style sarong?  We feel for you.ChildbirthYes, it’s the woman who has to endure the physical pain, but it’s not easy to watch the person you love experience something that difficult knowing that there is nothing you can do to help.It’s a different kind of pain, but it’s pain all the same.ShavingIt’s inconvenient, time consuming and never-ending!Not to mention frequently itchy and painful.Hair lossCompletely beyond your control (unless you’re doing a Wayne Rooney) and actually really troubling.One day you’re a young virile man, the next day you’re middle aged with a receding hairline.Hair gainSomehow, when all the hair is leaving your head, it starts appearing in places you don’t want it.Who wants tufts of growth coming from their ears and nose?  No one, that’s who.12 challenges women face that men just don’t understand>There’s a new ‘UCC Bird of the Day’ Facebook page already>last_img read more

Airbnb acquires Gaest expands into meeting space rentals

first_imgAirbnb is tapping into the meeting and event space rental market.  Airbnb You might book space for your next event or meeting through Airbnb in the near future. The short-term apartment rental company said on Friday it will acquire Gaest.com, a Danish startup that offers meeting space rentals for periods as short as a several hours or as long as multiple days. Gaest will be folded into Airbnb for Work, the company’s effort to enter the workplace market, according to the company’s blog post. “We imagine a world where anyone can share their space for professional events,” David Holyoke, global head for Airbnb for Work, said in the post.Airbnb has steadily been moving into the business market. Last August, Airbnb rebranded its business travel operations and said that nearly 700,000 companies have had employees sign up and book with Airbnb for Work. In a September blog post, Airbnb said the company would branch out into offsite meeting spaces, team-building experiences and professional relocations.

Donlin Gold looks to schools workforce development for future employees

first_img“Basically, what we do is we take a look at what jobs that are available in the region,” said Carol Wilson, executive director of Excel Alaska, another workforce training program that starts with students as young as seventh grade. Back at Yuut Elitnaurviat, Teeluk is helping build portable teacher housing that will be shipped to villages in the Lower Kuskokwim School District. When asked if she wants to work for Donlin, she shrugs and smiles. Desiree Teeluk pulls her bag filled with tools out from her locker at Yuut Elitnaurviat, a workforce development organization located in Bethel. She came from Kotlik, a village south of Norton Sound. Desiree has dreamed of being a carpenter since she was small. Donlin promised to prioritize shareholders from the two Native corporations that own the mineral rights and land for the mine. To do that, Donlin has to have a pipeline of shareholders already trained for the jobs at a mine that might not begin operating until years down the road. Donlin is already hiring for its drilling and exploration efforts, and it spends $1 million each year on community programs throughout the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta like Yuut Elitnaurviat and Excel Alaska. Welding students at Yuut Elinaurviat designed and fabricated a road grader that can be transported to villages in a shipping container. It could be used to grade remote roads for mining operations.(Photo by Krysti Shallenberger / KYUK) Jeremy Osborne is the director of programs at Yuut Elitnaurviat. He also works as a part-time copy editor for KYUK. He’s confident that his students will be ready for a job at the Donlin mine. “They have already hired and have called back probably between eight and 10 of our students that they hired last year, or that they’d have put into work internships that are now being looked at to bring back on for their summer drilling program,” Wilson said.  “I guess so,” Teeluk says.  “It’s just, like, in the blood. My dad was a carpenter and my biological dad is one too,” Teeluk said. center_img Excel tailors sessions to fit the skills that a student needs to get a job in their village. Teachers and community members refer a student to the program, and Excel gives them training for skills on local jobs until they graduate high school. Donlin Gold promised to hire local workers for its proposed gold mine. To fulfill that promise, the company knows that it has to start now — and it has to start young. Donlin is already investing in schools and programs in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta in anticipation. Donlin has already hired employees who have gone through Excel Alaska. She’s one of hundreds of students who have gone through Yuut Elitnaurviat or similar programs that train rural Alaskans for jobs at home. “So if the Donlin project goes, which is something we’ve talked about with Donlin Gold for a number of years, we actually have the capacity to house 160 people, which is pretty darn good,” Osborne said.  Donlin is preparing to hire more than 100 people for the final drilling program for its dam safety certification. Those jobs will only last a year, but Donlin also is playing the long game. They help fund scholarships from Calista Corporation and The Kuskokwim Corporation, which own the surface and mineral rights. Donlin also gives money to the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program or ANSEP. Right now she has this semester, and one more class, before she can fulfill her dream of being a carpenter.last_img read more

Following RBIs crackdown cryptocurrency exchanges look to shift base abroad

first_imgA copy of bitcoin standing on PC motherboard is seen in this illustration picture, October 26, 2017. Picture taken October 26, 2017.REUTERS/Dado RuvicMany bitcoin exchanges, including Zebpay and Unocoin, are looking to move their headquarters to jurisdictions outside India following the central bank’s clamp down on crypto-currencies.India’s aversion to virtual currencies was first displayed in December 2013 when the central bank issued a few words of caution.But last week, the Reserve Bank of India banned all financial firms from dealing with or providing services to any individuals or business entities dealing with or settling virtual currencies.Officials at the top echelons of the government, including finance minister Arun Jaitley, have already expressed their strong dislike for virtual currencies.The price of bitcoin plummeted to a low of Rs 350,000 ($5,392) versus its international market price of $6,617, following the RBI announcement.Mirroring the concerns, many bitcoin exchanges are exploring whether they could shift base to countries like Singapore, Delaware or Belarus and have approached their advisers and are working on various tax structures, the Economic Times reported on Monday.”We have to move our company to some foreign country where regulations allow opening of bank accounts plus we won’t be dealing in fiat currency,” Shivam Thakral, CEO, BuyUcoin told the Economic Times.Fiat money is a currency that a government has declared to be legal tender and its value is derived from the relationship between supply and demand.According to tax experts, the exchanges have only two options — either shut down the business or move to any other jurisdiction.In an interview last week, billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper advised blockchain and crypto companies to shift base to countries where initial coin offerings are allowed.”If the local authorities are banning crypto, then companies in the space should move elsewhere. The government needs to realize that it is stifling innovation and should instead be creating an environment where these ideas can be tested and promoted,” Draper told the Economic Times.last_img read more


Democrats Breathe Sigh Of Relief After Tuesdays Primaries

first_img Share Across the country Tuesday night, Democrats got good news in their effort to take back the House.They advanced candidates in key races in California (after being concerned they could be shut out), put forward what party operatives see as the best candidates in suburban New Jersey, and they feel good about their candidates who won in New Mexico and Iowa.Tuesday night’s results by no means mean taking back the House is assured for Democrats. In fact, indicators have moved the other direction over the past several months. But Tuesday night could have made things far worse – and they didn’t, which means Democrats have to be breathing a sigh of relief.Here are five takeaways from the primaries:1. Democrats still dreaming in California, avoid political nightmareGoing into Tuesday’s primaries, the big story to watch was the key House races in Southern California. Because of its primary system, in which the top two vote-getters advance to the general election regardless of party, Democratic operatives were concerned that the party could get shut out in places it needs to compete in this fall. Despite the large number of Democratic candidates who split the vote in some districts, it appears to be on track to put Democrats on the November ballot in each of those races, although final results are not yet known and might not be for several days.In California’s 39th district, the district Democrats were most concerned about beforehand, not only did a Democrat advance, but Washington operatives’ preferred candidate, Gil Cisneros, made it through. The district is one of seven held by the GOP that Hillary Clinton won in the state. Its unique demographics make it a real target for Democrats. The district is majority nonwhite – Latinos make up a third of residents while Asians make up slightly less than that. Democrats advanced Cisneros, who is Latino, and Republicans put through a vaunted candidate of their own, Young Kim, who finished first (slightly ahead of Cisneros) and is Asian.It was a tight race in California’s 48th district. Who makes it through will likely take some time to figure out. The top spot went to incumbent Dana Rohrabacher, whom Democrats see as very vulnerable. Currently, two Democrats are separated by just 73 votes out of 105,000 total cast. And a Republican is just 1 percentage point behind them. Republicans were concerned they might get shut out for the two big statewide offices — governor and U.S. Senate. It didn’t happen in the governor’s race, which will likely help turnout for the GOP in the fall. And President Trump is taking a measure of credit for that Wednesday morning:But for the second straight election, Republicans could not get a candidate through to the general election for the Senate. It means that Sen. Dianne Feinstein will be pitted against state Sen. Kevin de León, who is appealing to progressives and Latinos. Still, Feinstein enters in a very strong position, winning 1.2 million more votes than de León Tuesday night.2. The party is positioned well in the suburbs so farHalfway through the primary calendar, Democrats appear to be holding up where they need to — in the suburbs.Like in California, the seats Democrats hope to pick off in New Jersey are full of affluent, suburban voters. There are four districts in particular that they were targeting, and in all of them Democrats advanced candidates whom national Democrats see as the strongest candidates. What’s more, Democrats turned out at higher levels than Republicans in every single contest in the state where there was a competitive primary.Trump won three of the four big seats Democrats are targeting in New Jersey, so the party was wary of advancing candidates who might not be able to have some crossover appeal. But so far, with the exception of Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District, Democrats are putting forward candidates who match the districts they’re running in.(A race to watch this fall, however, could be Democrat Bob Menendez’s Senate seat. He underperformed in his Democratic primary, finishing with just 62 percent of the vote. And he’s facing a well-funded Republican this fall, former Celgene CEO Bob Hugin, who coasted in the GOP primary. Hugin has already spent $7.5 million of his own money and has run blistering TV ads against Menendez, questioning his moral fitness for office.)3. Republicans could benefit from the country’s changing regional politicsRepublicans also got their preferred candidate in a New Jersey House race against a freshman Democrat, Josh Gottheimer. It was a district Trump won in 2016. It’s important to remember that this year may be different than past potential wave years, because it’s not all headed in the same direction. That could be evidence of a continuation of a political reformation in the United States. In New York, which has its primary at the end of this month, Democrats are targeting about half a dozen upstate districts, but all of them went more for Trump than they did for Obama in 2008 and 2012. And Republicans are targeting similar Democratic-held seats in Minnesota, too.4. GOP members of Congress fared well Up to this point in 2018, being a Republican member of Congress wasn’t such a good thing. One GOP incumbent has already lost a primary and others have been denied promotions for the nomination to the Senate or for governor in Indiana, West Virginia and Idaho.But Tuesday night, two GOP members advanced to general elections for governorships in South Dakota and New Mexico.5. But whether they can speak up against Trump will be testedAt the same time, GOP Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff in Alabama after speaking out against President Trump. Roby said she couldn’t vote for Trump after the Access Hollywood tape emerged. But her district went for Trump by 30 points, and she drew a primary opponent. On Tuesday, she wound up with only 39 percent of the vote and will face off against former Rep. Bobby Bright, who finished with 28 percent, or about 10,000 fewer votes. There is a catch here, though — Bright isn’t a standard Republican. In fact, he hasn’t been a Republican all that long. He’s a former Democrat who voted for Nancy Pelosi for speaker.But Roby clearly has some work to do to get to 50 percent by the runoff on July 17, and the race will test just how short a leash a member of Congress who criticizes the president has with the base.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires He played in the Sooners’ Air Raid offense, where he was able to play predominantly from a two-point stance. In 2011 he lined up at right tackle, and flipped over to the left side in 2012.The GoodPass BlockingWhen it comes to the athleticism needed to line up at the tackle position in the NFL, Johnson has that in spades.Johnson uses his athleticism to get himself into good position on initial contact.The lineman has the ability to come out slow in his movement, but recover and get on the defender immediately.Johnson shows an incredible ability to mirror his defender, which again stems from his unbelievable athletic ability. When it comes to the run game, we discussed his flaws earlier: He often aims wildly, causing him to take on defenders incorrectly. This will allow the defender to free himself and make plays in the run game. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The UglyAthlete vs. ExperienceWhen it comes to Johnson, there is a divide amongst many within the draft community. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The BadTechnique and BuildJohnson is thin in his frame and lacks the desired build in his lower body at this time.Too often this will lead to Johnson playing with poor technique in the pass and run game. He can get his base too wide, which causes him to get off balance and the defender to beat him with a counter move.He didn’t give up many sacks, and that’s because he was so athletically gifted that when he over-set himself initially, or when he over extended allowing for a counter move, he was able to recover with elite change of direction skill.center_img When he locks onto a defender in pass protection, he is able to move them past the quarterback or stone them and not allow them to advance.He uses good hand placement and consistently fights to get inside position on his defender’s pads.Run BlockingWhile Johnson has issues maintaining his positioning on contact and “holding” onto his man, it’s not from lack of effort.Johnson is still extremely raw in the knowledge and technique base of his game, often taking bad angles, giving up the wrong shoulder, or overall just missing in the run game. Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   The positional journey for Lane Johnson through his collegiate life is truly amazing.He was a quarterback-turned tight end-turned defensive end-turned offensive tackle, where he now will likely be a top-seven pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.The Oklahoma Sooners’ offensive tackle is a special athlete; he ranked in the top five in all positional drills at the combine, highlighted by his exceptional explosion and change of direction skills. When he does make the right reads, Johnson is ferocious.He plays with an undeniable nasty streak, playing through the whistle.He is excellent in space when going toward the edge or getting to the perimeter in the run game.When asked to move to the second level he does so with extremely light feet, and is excellent in accelerating through his blocks. Johnson is one of the most elite physical specimens we have seen come out in the draft in years. He moves like a tight end, but has the build and size of a franchise left tackle.The problem is simply that he’s been a left tackle — and for that matter, a tackle in general — for such a short time that it’s hard to gauge how effective of a player he will be at the immediate onset of his career.His athletic ability made up for his inexperience technically and allowed him to be a more dominant overall player in games and on film than he actually is.Can he make the transition from athletic freak to masterful technician and become an elite left tackle in the league? Or is he so raw and underdeveloped that he won’t be able to make an impact?OverallPeople know I am not overly excited with taking Lane Johnson at the seventh pick in the draft, and it’s not because I don’t see the upside or potential greatness.It’s simply because the Cardinals — and mainly Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians — need a guaranteed upgrade from Levi Brown right now.Is Johnson an upgrade? I think he can be, but I don’t think he will be as soon as he steps on the field. Technically speaking, he needs work on the little things, and while that may lead to him becoming the best left tackle in the draft like some experts are saying, it doesn’t mean it will happen in a timely manner.last_img read more
