Kyler Murray’s NFL Decision Might Not Be 100 Percent Finalized

(Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray declared for the NFL Draft on Monday, as the Heisman Trophy winner said he was fully committed toward becoming an elite professional QB that will compete for championships.“Moving forward, I am firmly and fully committing my life and time to becoming an NFL quarterback,” Murray tweeted. “Football has been my love and passion my entire life. I was raised to play QB and I very much look forward to dedicating 100 percent of myself to being the best QB possible and winning NFL championships.”The Murray saga might not be over just yet, though.The Oakland A’s, who took Murray in the top 10 of last year’s MLB Draft, are not giving up hope.Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic is reporting that the A’s still believe Murray could end up choosing baseball and they haven’t given up on him.The A’s have reportedly received “conflicting signals” from Murray and they “believe Murray’s statement was crafted by his football agent, Erik Burkhardt of Select Sports Group, to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the NFL—the kind of commitment NFL teams wanted to hear.”There are now some within the NFL who believe Murray could go back and choose baseball if he ends up not loving his landing spot within the league.“Prescient point from one GM last night: Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray has power to dictate his draft spot like no one since Eli Manning. If he so desires, Murray can tell a team primed to draft him, “Don’t bother, I’ll play baseball.” Adds a fascinating dynamic,” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted.Prescient point from one GM last night: #Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray has power to dictate his draft spot like no one since Eli Manning.

Quebec MP Maxime Bernier bails on Conservatives lays rhetorical waste to party

first_imgOTTAWA – Renegade Conservative MP Maxime Bernier declared open war on his own party Thursday, abruptly quitting the Tory caucus, announcing nascent plans for a new political movement and deriding his former leader and colleagues as “intellectually and morally corrupt.”With Conservative caucus members gathering in Halifax for a policy convention that was expected to bring the Bernier boil to a head, the controversial Quebec MP stayed behind instead, hosting a snap news conference that proved breathtaking in its defiance.“I am no longer a Conservative,” Bernier declared after reading a scathing diatribe against his party and its leader, Andrew Scheer — the Saskatchewan MP who narrowly edged Bernier out of the leadership job last year in a loss some have suggested he never got over.“I am now convinced that what we will get if Andrew Scheer becomes prime minister is just a more moderate version of the disastrous Trudeau government,” he said.“I have come to realize over the past year that this party is too intellectually and morally corrupt to be reformed.”The shock of Bernier’s rebellion was still reverberating on Parliament Hill when Scheer emerged in Halifax to return fire, accusing his former leadership rival of putting his own “personal profile” ahead of the goals of the party.“It’s obvious that this has been coming for a long time, and in retrospect he probably made this decision to help Justin Trudeau a long time ago,” Scheer said.“I always challenged him to put personal ambition aside and to concentrate on the common ground that all Conservatives can rally around … I always challenged him to work together as a team, as he claimed that he would.”Bernier said he plans to contact Elections Canada about the path towards creating a new party and will spend the next several weeks travelling the country to meet with people interested in joining his cause.He accused Scheer of being too focused on polls and focus groups, and afraid of being attacked by people on the left and in the media, to come up with policies that adhere to bedrock Conservative principles. And he rattled off a laundry list of grievances:— Scheer’s support for Trudeau’s decision to impose retaliatory tariffs against the United States;— The Conservative party’s ongoing support for supply management, the system that regulates the price of Canadian milk, eggs and poultry and a major sticking point in NAFTA talks;— The reinstatement of regional ministers to lead development agencies.Bernier’s decision to drop his bombshell with Conservatives gathering in Nova Scotia for a policy convention was no coincidence; he wanted to make a big splash, said one source close to the MP who spoke on condition of anonymity.Conservative caucus members likely knew something was up, since Bernier had stopped taking their calls in the days leading up to Thursday’s announcement, the source said.Bernier said the last Conservative member he spoke to was Scheer himself — an Aug. 14 conversation that prompted his decision to leave the party, after the Tory leader issued a statement denouncing Bernier’s recent tweets about the perils of “too much diversity.”“We had a very polite discussion,” Bernier said. “After that discussion, I realized that I don’t have any place in that party anymore.”“It does not represent them anymore. And it has nothing of substance to offer Canadians looking for a political alternative.”The news prompted a torrent of Conservative reaction on Twitter and elsewhere, with the prevailing sentiment a show of solidarity with the party and its leader.“It’s clear that Max never accepted the result of the leadership vote and seeks only to divide Conservatives,” wrote former prime minister Stephen Harper.“Today’s Conservative Party is a mainstream, democratic coalition that is ready to govern,” added Jason Kenney, leader of Alberta’s United Conservative Party.“One man’s ego must not risk the imperative of defeating the Trudeau government.”Others were less diplomatic.“You had every opportunity to stand in caucus to share your views and provide input,” tweeted B.C. MP Todd Doherty. “When given the opportunity — you stayed silent or blamed it on others around you. You’re Twitter tough … all bark no bite.”While a number of observers lamented the electoral consequences for the Conservatives of a split on the right of the political spectrum, others were more sanguine about Bernier’s departure.“He has disregarded the caucus and disregarded what Canadian conservatives want, which is a very positive vision for the future of the country,” said Ontario MP Tony Clement.“I think is actually liberating for us, because we have rid ourselves of a giant distraction who was saying things that are not mainstream, so I think this actually rebounds in our favour.”last_img read more

Saks Fifth Avenue president talks about luxury

NEW YORK — Saks Fifth Avenue President Marc Metrick wants to bring theatre to luxury shopping at a time when shoppers can buy their designer handbags online.Under his leadership, Saks is in the last phase of what he calls a $250 million redevelopment of the storied Saks Fifth Avenue flagship in Manhattan just as luxury rivals Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom expand into the city. Metrick, who took over the helm of Saks in April 2015, aims to reinvent the department store experience. He’s added a fancy Parisian restaurant import, and is dedicating the main floor to luxury handbags that’s staffed with handbag style advisers in addition to the sales associates. Last year, he relocated the beauty department from the first floor to the second floor, while adding luxurious treatment rooms, new brands, and more beauty services. The remaining 40 Saks stores are getting touches that include warmer lights and lower lines of sight. Some stores’ beauty areas are offering expanded treatment services. Online, shoppers can connect with style advisers in the same market.The moves come as Saks Canadian parent Hudson’s Bay Co. has floundered, but the Saks business has been a bright light, even though it shuttered its much-hyped women’s store at Brookfield Place in downtown Manhattan after two and a half years. In the latest quarter ended Nov. 3, 2018, Saks Fifth Avenue enjoyed a 7.3 per cent increase in sales at stores opened at least a year.Metrick, 45, spoke with The Associated Press about competition and his outlook. Questions and responses have been edited for length and clarity.Q. How are the renovations at your flagship part of the chain’s overall strategy?A. We are calling it the new luxury. As it relates to the customer, it’s everything about how they experience our store, how they experience our website, how we communicate with them. I think the New York flagship store serves two purposes. It’s a beacon for everything we do at Saks on brand and our positioning in the world. It also acts as the first stop along the way for rolling out concepts for the other stores.Q. Did new competition spark renovation of the flagship?A. We are always going to be spending money and investing in our flagship store. It’s a very important part of our business, but the size and the scale of what we are doing was in response to competitive entry. I learned from having my Brookfield store down here. First, you can’t bring a branch store to New York City. The New York City customer wants a flagship type of experience. In New York City, you cannot bring a knife to a gun fight.Q. What’s the reason for shoppers to come to Saks stores?A. I believe luxury is theatre… Friends of mine who are in banking or are doctors always say to me, why would I want to buy something in your store, when I can buy it online? And I say to them, why don’t you just stream “Hamilton” on Netflix?Q. What’s your outlook?A. I would call my mood cautiously optimistic…There’s a fairly tight correlation between the Dow Jones Industrial Average and our business. I still feel pretty good. I am excited about what’s ahead for us.Q. What’s been the impact of the trade wars with China on your business?A. We are monitoring the situation, but there has been no impact to our business._______Follow Anne D’Innocenzio: http://twitter.com/ADInnocenzioAnne D’Innocenzio, The Associated Press read more

At Paris conference Ban pledges UN support for democratic and stable Libya

Six months after the world leaders met to agree on joint action to prevent a massacre of Libyan civilians, they reconvened in Paris today for the International Conference in Support of the New Libya, hosted by President Nicolas Sarkozy of France and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom. Mr. Ban told the gathering that the most immediate challenge is on the humanitarian front, with some 860,000 people having left the country since February, when opposition forces rose up against the regime of Colonel Muammar al-Qadhafi as part of a wider pro-democracy movement across North Africa and the Middle East. In addition, public services are under severe strain, including hospitals and clinics, there is a major water shortage, and sporadic fighting continues, particularly in the country’s south. “Looking beyond the immediate humanitarian crisis, it will be essential to work closely with the Libyan leadership to identify their needs and priorities,” stated the Secretary-General, who was accompanied by his Special Envoy for Libya, Abdel Elah Al-Khatib, and his Special Advisor for post-conflict planning, Ian Martin.“Once those needs are identified, we will have to act in harmony and in a coordinated manner to ensure effective, collective action,” he added. Mr. Ban, speaking to reporters later in the day, welcomed the broad participation in today’s meeting. “It sends a strong and unmistakable signal of international unity in support of our work for a democratic and stable Libya,” he noted.In his address to the conference, he said his discussions with leaders of the National Transitional Council (NTC) as well as with representatives of regional organizations had resulted in a clear message.“At this critical moment, the international community must come together with an effective, well-coordinated program of action,” he stated. “All agreed, as well, that the United Nations should lead that effort.”He outlined three principles that will govern the planning for the post-conflict stage – national ownership, speed of response, and effective coordination. In addition, he highlighted the areas for assistance that have been identified by the NTC, including transitional justice, policing, election preparation and constitution-making.“It is essential that the international community respond in the moment of need – not weeks or months down the road,” he noted. Mr. Ban said he intended to work closely with the Security Council in crafting a mandate for a UN mission, with the express aim of beginning operations with minimum delay. In the meantime, Mr. Martin will travel to Tripoli immediately to begin on-the-ground planning for the UN’s operations. The Secretary-General added that he will convene a high-level meeting on Libya on 20 September in New York on the margins of the 66th session of the General Assembly “to take stock and calibrate our efforts on behalf of the new Libya and its people.”Prior to the conference, Mr. Ban met separately with Nabil El-Arabi, the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States; Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the Chairman of the NTC; and Jean Ping, Chairman of the African Union Commission. 1 September 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today pledged the continued assistance of the United Nations in helping Libya tackle its humanitarian challenges, as well as in building a democratic and stable nation once the current conflict is over. read more

Metro Appeals To Riders To Pay Attention Along The Light Rail Lines

first_img– / 7In their bright yellow safety vests, Metro police converged on a rail stop in the Med Center to talk to riders about safety. Officers made their appeal just blocks away from where a Rice University professor was struck and killed by a train back in February. There was another fatal crash days later just outside the Super Bowl.Metro has also released videos of close calls, showing pedestrians and cyclists who were nearly hit.On the rail platform in from of Memorial Hermann Hospital, we spoke with medical student Dylan Supak. She rides the rails frequently and says a lot of  people simply get distracted.“Especially with headphones in and listening to music or looking down reading on phones. I think that’s the biggest thing,” says Supak.And that’s a big deal to Metro Police Captain Darren Lewis, who oversees patrols along the rail lines. Lewis says looking up from your phone could literally save your life.“We always want to look both directions before we cross,” says Lewis. “Look at the signals. All of those intersections have a button that you push to walk and you’ve got to make sure you’re looking at the right signal before you cross.”Metro says it’s currently instituting safety measures like louder horns and brighter colors on the rail cars. The transit agency is also considering more barriers that would separate people from moving trains. 00:00 /01:09 Listen X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharelast_img read more

Sometimes Hackers Just Want to Embarrass You

first_imgFebruary 3, 2015 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Cyber attacks can have a detrimental impacts on customer relations, revenue, intellectual property and the overall health and welfare of an organization. But one significant impact, which can cost a company considerable time and money to repair, is in the area of public relations.This was the case recently when Amy Pascal, Sony’s co-chairman and chief of its film division, came under intense criticism for her remarks about President Barack Obama and less than flattering statements about high-profile actors, including Angelina Jolie, Kevin Hart and Adam Sandler.The comments were leaked by hackers who infiltrated the company’s emails and then leaked her exchange with movie producer Scott Rudin. Despite her quick apology, some in the industry initially speculated whether Pascal would be forced to resign.Related: 3 Lessons From Sony Pictures Cautionary Tale Other damages certainly occurred from the attack. The group claiming to have carried out the cybertheft also took terabytes of Sony’s financial information, budgets, payroll data, internal emails and films. Yet the longest lasting impact of the incident may very well be the buzz now permeating through social media and other gossip media pages about the salacious views expressed by the company’s top brass.And that will be the aspect that the public will remember most for some time to come. Although there are many victims of cyber attacks, Sony’s name may become synonymous with corporate losses and embarrassment from careless emails and protection of data as was the case for Target.The reality is that these embarrassing moments can have as big of an impact on an organization’s bottom line as the attacks aimed at uncovering trade secrets or bank accounts. The time and money spent to respond to awkward statements could be extremely costly and the upheaval that can result from shifts in a management team can slow down or even derail mission-critical initiatives.Related: Better Safe Than Sorry: How Startups are Staying Protected in CyberspaceAny good incident-response policy should include a public-relations plan that specifically addresses the potential fallout from stolen emails, letters or other information that could have a negative result if publicly released. Corporate managers need to have an understanding and anticipation of the information in their computing networks that could result in a public-relations debacle. Let this serves as a visible warning to corporate managers: You may certainly have regrettable slips of the tongue or articulated or comments out of frustration — ones that, at your core, you abhor and wish you could take back. And when written in text, the fallout can become magnified when shared in a public forum — on the digital realm.Every email, text, social media post or communique leaves a trail that can be accessed and exploited by someone with the right training and sophistication. Treat correspondence through such venues as ultimately open to anyone.So be mindful of what you share on digital platforms. Count to 10, take a deep breath and ask yourself if you want what you have typed, texted or posted to appear in a broad forum. If the answer is no, then don’t share it electronically.I recommend that if you need a place to vent the stresses of the day, work out regularly. Trust me: Your the time will be spent far more benefically.Related: Hackers’ Next Major Target: Your Smartphone Register Now » 3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globallast_img read more

How can we make adjusting to new time zones simpler and how can we help our bodies cope with the effects of long-haul flights? Whether you’re heading off on a bargain break to Orlando or you’ve found a great deal on a cheap holiday… Keep HydratedIt is easy to become dehydrated whilst flying, as the air inside a plane cabin is very dry, so make sure to drink plenty of water. The one bottle of water supplied by the flight attendants won’t be enough for a long haul flight, so to avoid the hassle of constantly having to ask for water, bring along your own filtered water bottle and refill it with tap water on the plane. Although it might be tempting to indulge in a glass of wine or cocktail to relax your nerves, try to avoid alcoholic or carbonated drinks, as they will only add to dehydration.Eat RightNothing can add to the discomfort of a flight like improper diet. Eat lightly on board, and stay away from gaseous foods. When flying at a high altitude bodily gases expand by one third causing aches and uneasiness. Make your flight more enjoyable by eating foods to strengthen your immune system, such as fresh fruits and veggies like raw carrots, apples and bananas – the airline might not stock these so bring your own snacks when possible.Dress ComfortablyDon’t let vanity get the better of you on long-haul flights; ditch the suits and heels and opt for comfortable loose fitting clothing instead. If you don’t want to be seen wandering through the airport in your pyjamas, pack some clothes to change into on board. Don’t forget to take off your shoes too, as ankles tend to swell slightly at high altitudes. Long haul flights aren’t everybody’s idea of fun, but with a few simple rules, you can stay healthy and arrive at your destination ready to enjoy your holiday.Paul Joseph, director of Health and Fitness Travel introduces seven top tips for preparing for a long haul flight and staying healthy when flying.center_img Care For Your SkinLong haul flights are known to take a toll on personal appearance. Make sure you reach your destination looking fresh and rested by hydrating your skin at regular intervals throughout the flight. Invest in some high quality natural moisturiser or spritzer spray enriched with essential oils to keep you feeling and looking your best. Keep MovingIt is important to keep the blood flowing on long haul flights as sitting for hours at a time can increase the risk of blood clots. Take a look at the inflight magazine, as most will suggest a number of simple exercises that help your blood circulation. Most importantly remember to stand up, stretch and walk around at least once every hour.Boost Your Immune SystemA strong immune system is key to ensuring a healthy holiday, so prior to your trip make sure your system is up to speed by taking high-end multi-vitamins and multi-mineral supplements on a regular basis. A healthy immune system will help your body cope with the recycled air and dry atmosphere that are inevitable on long haul flights.RelaxIf you are a nervous flyer, try to relax before boarding because stress will only add to the discomfort you feel whilst in the air. This may seem easier said than done, but there are a number of techniques you can use to help; for example meditation, taking deep slow breaths, or counting backwards from 5 to 1. If you’re really worried about flying, see your doctor who may be able to prescribe some medication to help. If it’s an especially long flight you may want to get some sleep to pass the time. If you have trouble falling asleep whilst flying you may want to invest in a natural sleep aid._Health and Fitness Travel provide tailor-made active and wellness holidays worldwide.
