What the new iMac looks like basically the same as before

first_imgOh, look what just arrived in the office, if it isn’t a 27-inch, Spring 2011 iMac packing all sorts of Sandy Bridge goodness. It’s even the high-end model, with the 3.1GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB of storage, AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics, FaceTime HD, and, of course, the 2560×1440 display. This model starts at $1999 (the 27-inch iMac starts at $1699 with the 2.7GHz CPU), so you are definitely paying for all that updated gear.AdChoices广告This post would have been a lot more exciting if something significant had been changed on the outside of the iMac, but that wasn’t the case. The only change of note, the use of Thunderbolt ports on the back, can be seen above. They are the two electric-looking icons to the right of the port lineup. They look like mini DisplayPorts because they use the same connector.Those Thunderbolt ports also make up a notable difference between the 27-inch iMac and its smaller, 21.5-inch brother: the large models has two while the smaller has just one. Since Thunderbolt has very few uses right now this isn’t too big of a deal, but if you’ll be driving display or attaching storage (and you don’t want to daisychain components) an extra port could come in handy one day.In case you hadn’t heard, the new iMacs include either the Magic Trackpad or Magic Mouse with a purchase. If you want both you’ll have to spend an  extra $69… in other words, the full retail price. Our unit had the Magic Mouse.That’s is for now, because the new iMac looks just like the old one. Once some reviews appear (probably very soon) we’ll be able to see just how effective the new processor and graphics card are. If it’s anything like the other computers that moved to Sandy Bridge the performance bump should be considerable.last_img read more

ISPs launch Six Strikes program today aims to educate and punish pirates

first_imgIn a bid to curb piracy, various ISPs are said to be launching their version of the Six Strikes program sometime this week. The ISPs in question are the big boys, including Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner, and Cablevision. According to reports, each ISP will be launching its own version of the program at different times this week, with Comcast set to go first sometime today.Known as the Copyright Alert System (CAS), the program is also referred to as the Six Strikes program due to its graduated response system. Though the graduated steps aren’t entirely clear just yet — and can differ between ISPs — each step becomes more severe, with the lower-tier responses being warnings, and the higher-tier responses being anything from having to watch an “educational” video to throttling bandwidth.The new program comes with a revamped website, featuring a new video (set to smooth elevator music) that explains the process, seen below.Seeing as how the video is on YouTube, and it supports a program that many argue infringes on the rights of internet users (or at least, would be a pain to deal with), we wouldn’t be surprised if someone hits the video with a bogus DMCA takedown. To some, it would be delicious irony.Back in January, Verizon’s Six Strikes policy reportedly leaked, and detailed a process that begins as simple warnings in the form of emails and automated voicemail messages. The third and fourth infringements will result in the user’s browser being redirected to a site that forces them to watch an educational video about copyright infringement, then click on a popup that acknowledges they watched the video. The fifth infringement results in a bandwidth throttle, and the sixth could result in direct legal action.As mentioned before, not every ISP has to take the same route, but it’s likely the plans will be similar to the above steps. We don’t condone piracy, but any kind of punishment system that can be mistaken (for example, because someone used your ISP without your knowledge) isn’t the most ideal kind of system. The only thing we can really do, though, is wait and see if the CAS causes more trouble problems than it intends to fix.last_img read more

Talking to the kids on the phone asking them how their day

first_img http://the42.ie/3326917 Image: PA Archive/PA Images Share50 Tweet Email Apr 6th 2017, 8:00 PM Lawrie retired from professional golf in September after 20 years on tour. 3 Comments 30,620 Views Player and Nicklaus pay emotional tribute to Arnold Palmer as 2017 Masters gets underway Short URLcenter_img Thursday 6 Apr 2017, 8:00 PM Lawrie retired from professional golf in September after 20 years on tour. Image: PA Archive/PA Images ‘Talking to the kids on the phone asking them how their day was, and you say to yourself, I really should be at home’ It’s seven months since Peter Lawrie walked away from professional golf after falling out of love with life on tour. IN THE END, it was all rather abrupt — no deliberation, no second thoughts, no regrets — but, deep down, Peter Lawrie had known for some time the flame was beginning to flicker.The will to play on simply wasn’t there and life on tour was no longer what it was. The game had moved on, developed and changed, and there came a point when Lawrie realised it was time he moved on too.The nomadic existence, the weeks and months spent away from home and family, and the perpetual battle to justify it all wasn’t what he wanted anymore. Enough was enough.“I was on a train track and I couldn’t get off it and no matter what I did the end was in sight,” he tells The42. “Did golf give me up or did I give up on it? I think it was a bit of both, to be honest.”Lawrie officially turned his back on professional golf last September, but the beginning of the end can be traced back to November 2015. It was at that stage, as he returned to Qualifying School in Catalunya, when he began to question it and the doubts started to reverberate.“You look back on it,” he continues. “You’re 42 years of age and can you just picture yourself going back into Sixth Year in school to do your Leaving Cert again. I would say that would horrify a lot of people and that’s exactly what it was like.“I was going back mixing with young lads who were trying to come up on tour. It’s actually funny as I probably looked at older lads when I came out as a young guy, thinking ‘what are these lads still doing out here, they’re way past their prime’ and that was me in that situation.”It was the lowest point of his career and Lawrie’s performance that week hinted that his desire was beginning to fade as a nightmare situation was compounded after an incorrect drop from a staked tree. The Dubliner won once on the European Tour. Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesHe refused to sign his card and was automatically disqualified, a decision he knew would end his hopes of regaining his full playing rights for 2016.“I won’t give up,” he said at the time, but Lawrie knew. He knew there wasn’t much more he could give to a game, and lifestyle, which had changed dramatically in the two decades he had been on tour.Ten starts sprinkled throughout 2016 failed to yield much return and financially it was no longer viable for him to chase one final payday whilst leaving his wife at home with four young kids.“I would always weigh up the situation of walking out the door and leaving them behind. Was it worth my while?” he said.“Not just in terms of me being competitive but also in a monetary nature and when that wasn’t stacking up, when I was walking out the door and leaving my family behind and not earning a decent wage and then struggling and losing a bit at the end, it was time to call it a day.“It’s a hard thing to do, to look at your career and accept it’s time to move on. I just needed to tell myself that I’d had a good career but now I need to stop and do something else. If I kept chasing it I would be talked about as one of those players who was good but now can’t hit snow off a rope.”His last shot in professional golf was at the KLM Open on 9 September 2016, as he carded rounds of 76 and 77 to finish 149th out of 156 entries. He had hoped for a final swansong at the Dunhill Links or in Portugal but a sponsor’s invite never came.“You just have to look at how long they hit it now, and their physiques,” he says. “Golf has changed so dramatically to a power sport rather than a master craftsman getting the ball around the golf course. Lawrie has taken up a role as director of golf at Luttrellstown Castle. Source: PA Archive/PA Images“Golf moved on to a certain extent because the golf courses I could contend at were short and tight and now they play courses that are mainly wide open, long and with plenty of rough.”Lawrie hadn’t so much fallen out of love with golf — the game is all he’s ever known and wanted to play — but had become tired and disillusioned by everything that goes around it; the airports, the travel, the hotels, the endless pursuit of ranking points and the pressure to come home from far-flung places with something to show for it all.“It just got tiresome after a while, I had done enough of it.” he admits. “Twenty years as a pro, 15 of them were on the European Tour and the other five were pretty much going around the world chasing a card. It was enough, I had done enough.The hardest part was probably in the evening time, you’ve finished your dinner and there’s nobody around you. You’re talking to the kids on the phone: ‘How are you today, what did you get up to today Daddy?’ and you say to yourself really I should be at home. That was the hardest part more than anything else.“You’re trying to get home on a Sunday night or a Friday night when you’ve missed the cut as quickly as you can to see the kids. They need their Dad, especially my son more than anything. The youngest is five, then seven, nine and 11.”Now, Lawrie gets to spend a lot more time at home after taking up the role of director of golf at Luttrellstown Castle Golf Club, with the commute for his new day job taking just five minutes.Life has moved onto the next chapter.Lawrie is just about coming to terms with that, and beginning to accept the way a career which garnered one European Tour win, at the Spanish Open in 2008, came to a halt earlier than he would have liked. He still questions if he made the right decision, but insists he just has to park that period in his life and look forward. Celebrating the putt to win the 2008 Spanish Open. Source: Ross Kinnaird“The 19 September 2016 is a date which will be etched in my brain forever,” he explains. “I still wonder have I made the right decision. I’m watching and thinking I could still be out there but there’s a day and a day when things move on and that’s life.“Dealing with the fact that I’m not playing anymore has been the hard part. Watching the television or watching the scores on the internet, the lure is still there. I suppose it’s a bit like being a gambler, golf was like that, it was the thrill of the next big win. That’s been tough to push aside.You have to move on and when you’re in that situation, just accept it’s time and let someone else in the door. I have no regrets because that would kill you. I made that decision and you have to get on with it. I’ve closed one chapter and opened up another.”Fresh pastures, but Lawrie can look back on his time at the top with great pride and satisfaction. The ultimate professional, who earned the respect of his peers through sheer hard work, perseverance and an unflinching passion for the game, the Dubliner was one of the most consistent performers on tour. He kept his  card for 12 straight years and could have easily been a four-time winner had he not been pipped in three separate play-offs.His one win also involved a play-off, but on that occasion Lawrie came out the right side as he defeated home favourite Ignacio Garrido at the Spanish Open nine years ago.“It was definitely one of the highlights with the other being when I played with my brother in the Dunhill Links at St Andrew’s and we finished sixth. To be able to share that with him was fantastic and not many sportsmen can say they shared the arena with their brother.“I consider myself very lucky because of what I achieved and what I did. You could look back on the four play-offs I was in and say I could have won them all and could have been a four-time winner on tour but I can’t do that. At the time I gave it my best shot and that’s as good as I could give and I was a thorough professional from start to finish. Source: Ross Kinnaird“I wasn’t one of the lads who was down the pub at the night time, I gave it all I could and here I am, that’s it, I couldn’t have done any more. I’m proud of what I did but would I liked to have been there a little longer? Yes, but sometimes that’s not the way it works out.“I grew up with golf and dreaming of playing it professionally. When I was in Terenure College, a big rugby school, I didn’t play rugby because I didn’t want to damage myself for golf.“I used to get laughed at for saying ‘my left hand was worth €2 million and my right worth €3 million’ but that’s the way I looked at it. I always wanted to be a professional golfer and I reached that.“I’m one of the few players out there who can say they won on the European Tour and had a successful career.”The42 is on Instagram!

After 8years delay India to get 1st dolphin research centre in

first_imgPatna : The foundation stone of India’s first dolphin research centre will be laid here on October 5, after an eight-year delay since it was first mooted, an officer confirmed. D.K. Shukla, the senior officer from Bihar’s Department of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, said: “It was announced by Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi in state Assembly that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar would lay the foundation stone of the National Dolphin Research Centre (NDRC) on October 5 on the bank of river Ganga in the premises of Patna University.” Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us Shukla said the development was a good news for conservation of the endangered Gangetic river dolphins in the country. According to Gopal Sharma, a senior scientist at the Zoological Survey of India (ZSI), the population of the endangered Gangetic river dolphins was stable along nearly 1,000 km stretch of the Ganga and its two major tributaries, Gandak and Ghaghra. Also Read – CBI carrying out surprise checks at 150 government departments Advertise With Us More than 1,500 dolphins were spotted by three teams of experts and scientists who undertook the exercise of enumeration of the species earlier this year. The NDRC will play an important role to strengthen conservation efforts and help in research to save the endangered mammal. Another officer of the Department SAID the NDRC remained stuck for over four years due to refusal of Patna University to part with its land for it. Advertise With Us Unhappy over the delay, Nitish Kumar threatened last year that the NDRC might be shifted to Bhagalpur. After this, the varsity finally gave its clearance. A well reputed expert on the Gangetic river dolphins, R.K. Sinha, who is also the current Vice Chancellor of the Nalanda Open University in Patna said the NDRC will prove a boon for research and conservation of dolphin. “It will help in reserach as well as conservation of dolphins.” It was Sinha’s idea to set up the NDRC in Patna and a proposal was approved by then Planning Commission Chairman Montek Singh Ahulwalia during his visit here in mid 2011 and early 2012. Within a year, the commission had sanctioned Rs 28.06 crore for the NDRC in 2013 followed by the state government that also released Rs 18,16 crore to the Infrastructure Development Authority in 2014. But till July 2018, the NDRC remained a non-starter. Sinha, known as the ‘Dolphin Man’ for his research of the Gangetic dolphins, said the species habitat has been threatened and disturbed in the river. He said the Gangetic river dolphin is India’s national aquatic animal but frequently falls prey to poachers and sometimes killed without intention after being trapped in fishs net and hit by machines. The mammals are killed at an alarming rate with wildlife officials saying poachers kill them for their flesh, fat and oil. Sinha, who was conferred the Padma Shri for his research on dolphin, said dolphin presence is the sign of a healthy river ecosystem. Dolphins prefer water that is at least 5ft to 8ft deep. They are usually found in turbulent waters, where there are enough fish for them to feed on.Gangetic dolphins live in a zone where there is little or no current, which helps them save energy. If they sense danger, they can dive into deeper waters. The dolphins swim from the no-current zone to the edges to hunt for fish and return, Sinha added. Gangetic river dolphins fall under Schedule I of the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act, and have been declared an endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).last_img read more

Nearly 170000 flee violence in Syrias Afrin UN

first_imgA picture taken on 22 March, 2018 shows a man walking with a loaded donkey and followed by a dog past the rubble of a destroyed building in the northwestern Syrian city of Afrin. Photo: AFPNearly 170,000 people have fled after a Turkish-led assault on the Kurdish-majority Syrian city of Afrin, the UN said Friday, pointing to the harrowing conditions faced by those displaced.”The estimate now is 167,000 people have been displaced by hostilities in Afrin district,” Jens Laerke, spokesman for the UN humanitarian agency, told reporters in Geneva.He said most of those who had left had gone to nearby Tal Rifaat.The World Health Organization (WHO) meanwhile said it had deployed mobile medical clinics and health supplies to areas hosting those displaced from Afrin, warning that health services inside the city were also lacking.”Children, women, and men have undertaken harrowing journeys to flee Afrin and need urgent health assistance. Our staff have met civilians who reported walking for 36 hours to reach safer areas,” WHO’s representative in Syria Elizabeth Hoff said in a statement.Marixie Mercado, a spokeswoman for the UN children’s agency, also said displaced people arriving at collective shelters in Nubul had described “running in the face of shelling, sleeping in the open, being separated from their families”.Turkish troops and allied Syrian rebels seized control of Afrin city from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia on Sunday.Ankara began its offensive in January against the YPG, which it says is allied with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) waging an insurgency against Turkey since 1984.The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has put the number who have fled Afrin at 250,000, and says dozens of civilians have been killed in the fighting, in addition to around 1,500 Kurdish fighters.According to Laerke, between 50,000 and 70,000 civilians are estimated to remain inside the city.The health situation there is also difficult, the WHO said, pointing out that only one of four hospitals was currently functioning.More than 350,000 people have been killed since Syria’s war started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.last_img read more

NZ mosque shooting victims being buried

first_imgPeople attend the burial ceremony for the victims of the mosque attacks at the Memorial Park Cemetery in Christchurch, New Zealand on 20 March. Reuters File PhotoThe bodies of two victims from New Zealand’s mosques mass shooting were carried in open caskets on the shoulders of mourners into a large tent at Christchurch’s Memorial Park Cemetery on Wednesday – the first burials of the 50 victims.Wrapped in white cloth the bodies, a father and son, were laid to face Mecca, and after jenazah (funeral) prays, were carried towards their freshly dug graves.Several mounds of dirt piled high marked the site of multiple graves which will be used for New Zealand’s worst mass shooting.Hundreds gathered to mourn, some men wearing a taqiyah (skullcap), others shalwar kameez (long tunic and trousers), while women wore hajibs and scarfs.“Seeing the body lowered down, it was a very emotional time for me,” said Gulshad Ali, who had travelled from Auckland to attend the funeral.An area was set up for mourners to wash their hands ahead of the service, as is the tradition in Islam. Heavily armed police stood watch with flowers tucked in their revolver holsters and attached to their high powered rifles.Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist who was living in Dunedin, on New Zealand’s South Island, has been charged with murder following the attack on two mosques last Friday.He was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5, when police said he was likely to face more charges.New Zealand’s police chief said global intelligence agencies, including the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and those from Australia, Canada and Britain, were building up a profile of the alleged shooter.”I can assure you this is an absolute international investigation,” Police Commissioner Mike Bush said at a media briefing in the capital Wellington.New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said the suspect in the shooting had traveled around the world and was not a long-term resident.As of Tuesday night 21 victims had been identified, said police and their bodies would be released for burial. Final identifications should be completed by Wednesday night.Families of the victims have been frustrated by the delay as under Islam bodies are usually buried within 24 hours.Bush said police had to prove the cause of death to the satisfaction of the coroner and the judge handling the case.”You cannot convict for murder without that cause of death. So this is a very comprehensive process that must be completed to the highest standard,” he said.Twenty nine people wounded in the attacks remained in hospital, eight still in intensive care.Many have had to undergo multiple surgeries due to complicated gunshot wounds. The gunman used semi-automatic AR-15 rifles, with large magazines, and a shotgun.Tragedy For A SchoolArdern, who has promised tough new gun laws which could ban semi-automatic weapons and make buying a gun harder, has said the victims would see justice.She has refused to mention alleged gunman Tarrant’s name, saying he does not deserve publicity.The Cashmere High School in Christchurch lost two students in the attack, teenagers Sayyad Milne and Hamza Mustafa, Hamza’s father Khaled, and a former student Tariq Omar.About 200 children gathered at the school auditorium on Wednesday and listened to Ardern who spoke to them about racism and changes in gun laws. She said: “Never mention the perpetrator’s name … never remember him for what he did.”The students performed an emotionally-charged haka, a ceremonial war dance, for Ardern.As she was leaving, a little girl ran up to Ardern and hugged her. The prime minister hugged her back.”The impact of this terror attack has been particularly cruel and tough for our school community,” the school principal Mark Wilson said in a statement late on Tuesday.last_img read more

Groovy gifts for new age grooms

first_imgIt has been ages since someone thought of gifting gold to the newly wed couples. The trend then was to secure the couple’s future with the resale value of the yellow metal, but with time other gifting options like crockery sets, home furnishing, clothing, propped up in marriage ceremonies. But have you ever given it a thought of how women-oriented the wedding gifts are? Gold earrings, rings, pendants, saris… all for the bride. The groom barely gets anything other than the commonly shared-with-the-bride bed-sheets, bed-covers, dinner sets, cookware or home decorative pieces.

This needed to be done.”Despite all the reforms, official figures show Beijing’s average density of PM2.5 — harmful particles that are small enough to enter bloodstreams — was nine times the World Health Organization air quality safety level in the first three months of the year. That still marked a 19 percent drop from pollution levels a year before.The city has shown it can bring back days-long stretches of blue skies for high-profile events such as last year’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation group meeting, but only by wielding the toughest of measures, such as encouraging residents to leave town and closing factories more than 120 miles away. Keeping the skies clean on a daily basis will require more permanent fixes, said Li Xiang, with Beijing’s Environmental Protection Ministry.“Changing air pollution is a long-term project,” Li said. “In other cities, like London and Los Angeles in the U.S., it took about 50 years to reduce air pollution and show significant change. … Beijing has made significant improvements, but meeting people’s expectations will take some time.” Parents, stop beating yourself up Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Comments   Share   4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches The anti-pollution fight has become a particularly sensitive task for image-conscious Chinese leaders as the country becomes known globally as much for its severe pollution as its economic growth.Environmental woes have also become one of the top causes of social unrest in China, as well as a major health hazard. Studies show pollution causes more than a million premature deaths annually in China and shortens life spans by an average of five years.Lax enforcement of the new environmental restrictions is a clear obstacle to cleaning up the capital’s air.For example, although Beijing has banned open-air barbecues within its Fourth Ring Road, clouds of skewer smoke are common sights in the twisting alleyways and roads throughout the city center. Many drivers regularly flout restrictions that require cars to stay off the roads on certain days of the week.The biggest problem, however, is much of Beijing’s smog drifts in from beyond its borders, especially if winds blow in from the south or east.Heavy industry in neighboring provinces, in particular Hebei, Shanxi and Shandong, account for 28 to 36 percent of the fine particulate in Beijing’s air, according to Chinese state media. Shutting down those industries would hit one of the most economically vital areas in the country. A Rock Check spokesman said last week the company was considering an interview request, but subsequent phone calls to him rang unanswered.“Why does Beijing have so much pollution?” Hang asked as the factory’s multiple smokestacks puffed smoke high into the sky. “It’s because of the areas around it. It’s all like this. Beijing hardly produces any of its own pollution anymore. We have industry all around us. It doesn’t matter which way the wind blows.”___Associated Press videojournalist Helene Franchineau contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories An analysis by the environmental group Greenpeace showed the five smoggiest parts of China all sit just hundreds of miles from Beijing, with the capital itself suffering the country’s fourth-worst air quality average.“You have to work with the surrounding region and control the heavy industries there,” said Fang Yuan, a campaigner in Greenpeace’s East Asia office.Yet without much of the international media and diplomatic corps watching, like they do in the capital, companies have been much slower shutting down cement, chemical and other industrial factories elsewhere in the northeast.About a three-hour drive from Beijing, on the outskirts of the city of Tianjin, hundreds of angry residents have taken to the streets over the past week to protest what they say are the rising emissions of the giant Rock Check steel plant, which churns about a mile from a teeming housing complex. The protesters say they suspect the plant has caused outbreaks of lung cancer in the area.A neighbor who would identify herself only by her surname, Hang, said she and other protesters have blocked coal-carrying trucks from the plant and wouldn’t leave the streets until the plant either closes or cuts emissions to a tolerable level. Now, more than a year since Chinese Premier Li Keqiang declared war on pollution across the country, Beijing’s massive anti-smog fight is transforming this 20-million-person metropolis in ways both big and small. Still, as was evident on several days over the past week, when a thick gray pall filled the streets, the Chinese smog battle is far from won.Authorities in Beijing are shutting down coal-fired power plants within the city limits and have tried to reduce vehicle exhaust by forcing many residents to wait years to win a license plate. The capital last Monday launched the country’s strictest ban on smoking indoors. Officials have even tried to convince people to cut back on the centuries-old tradition of setting off fireworks during Chinese New Year, though booms and crackles still rang out across the city in February.In the predominantly Muslim neighborhood where Dong runs her restaurant, inspectors have become a regular sight as they make sure vendors have installed thousands of dollars’ worth of ventilation and filters. Though Dong doesn’t think her business had much to do with the state of Beijing’s air, she says the extra enforcement in general has made breathing easier. BEIJING (AP) — When Dong Yingli first opened her east Beijing meat skewers restaurant six years ago, her chefs cooked the lamb, chicken hearts and assorted treats over an uncovered grill, with giant fans blowing the clouds of pungent smoke from the sidewalk into the middle of the street.Elsewhere in this sprawling capital city, four coal-fired power plants belched exhaust into the smoggy skies, while countless steel and cement factories in neighboring provinces emitted millions of tons of cancer-causing particles into the air.

For all intents and purposes it can be assumed tha

first_imgFor all intents and purposes it can be assumed that Thursday’s game against the Tennessee Titans will be the final chance for both Kevin Kolb and John Skelton to audition for the role of Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback.It’s John Skelton’s turn to start, so he’ll get the first shot at impressing the coaches. Kevin Kolb will also get some snaps, and as offensive coordinator Mike Miller told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday, the hope is the QBs will continue to improve. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Comments   Share   Top Stories center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “I think we are just trying to build that continuity, see these guys continue to expand what we’re able to operate,” Miller said. “And just see the physical things — the accuracy, just being aware of the pre-snap reads, the poise.“And then just the anticipation, just the overall continued development within their job and the offense.”So in a perfect world both Skelton and Kolb would play well, though that task may be a bit more difficult now that left tackle Levi Brown is out after suffering a torn tricep last Friday against Oakland Raiders.That leaves the inexperienced D.J. Young getting the nod Thursday in Tennessee, and he’ll be followed by a few others whom the coaches want to get a look at in one of the most crucial positions in the game.
