first_imgThe Harlem Globetrotters, the most storied sports and entertainment franchise in the world, will bring their talents to a different stage on April 26.The Globetrotters will sport custom-designed, one-time-only red jerseys in the motif of the American Red CrossAs part of the American Red Cross’ annual Giving Day, the team will participate in a charity game to benefit and bring awareness to fundraising efforts for disaster relief.“If there’s anyone who doubts the impact that the American Red Cross can have, I am proof of how much they do to help,” current Globetrotters star Big Easy Lofton said. “When my family was displaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it was the Red Cross who was there to help us out – and the rest of our community. Even a simple donation of $10 can go a long, long way. Believe me. Taking part in this game to raise awareness is something that is very special to me and the rest of the Globetrotter organization.”The charity game – to be played at Kailey Gymnasium at Miles Community College in Miles City, Mont., tipping-off at 6 p.m. – will have all proceeds going directly to the American Red Cross. All tickets are $20, and can be purchased online at, or at the Miles Community College Business Office.The game will also feature a unique twist, specifically-tailored for the American Red Cross.Globetrotter players will sport custom-designed, one-time-only red jerseys in the motif of the American Red Cross. From the jerseys – only the third time in history that the Globetrotters will don a uniform other than the traditional red, white, and blue – to the red-and-white ball, the charity game will draw awareness to Giving Day activities. The Globetrotters will also be encouraging fans to donate to the American Red Cross, by texting “90999” at any point during April 26.The American Red Cross joined forces with the Harlem Globetrotters in December 2016, becoming the team’s official charity partner through its Great Assist initiative – helping communities across the country prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters of all kinds.“Having the Globetrotters involved in Giving Day is wonderful,” said Gail McGovern, American Red Cross President and CEO. “For over 90 years, the team has been putting smiles on the faces of adults and children all over the world. To have their energy behind Giving Day, and helping us raise money for disaster relief victims across the United States, is truly invaluable. We are also extremely thankful to Miles Community College for donating the use of their facility to host this wonderful event.”Additionally, the Globetrotters will also be making the push to raise awareness for Giving Day across its social media platforms, replacing its Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram avatars with the Giving Day logo. On those three platforms alone, the Globetrotters have more than 1.5 million followers, providing a major platform to bring Giving Day efforts to a greater audience. The Globetrotters will also be encouraging fans to use the official Giving Day hashtag, #Help1Family throughout its social channels.“This is part of the fabric of the Globetrotter identity – giving back,” Howard Smith, Harlem Globetrotters president said. “Giving Day is one of the staples of the American Red Cross’ fundraising campaign, so to be involved fits in with who we are. The Red Cross is our official charity partner, and does so much for millions of families across the country, so to lend a hand was a no-brainer for us.”The Harlem Globetrotters are legendary worldwide, synonymous with one-of-a-kind family entertainment and great basketball skills for the past 90 years. Throughout their history, the Original Harlem Globetrotters have showcased their iconic talents in 122 countries and territories on six continents, often breaking down cultural and societal barriers while providing fans with their first-ever basketball experience. Proud inductees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Globetrotters have entertained hundreds of millions of fans – among them popes, kings, queens, and presidents – over nine thrilling decades.

Survey shows unexpected increase in German business confidence despite market plunges in

Survey shows unexpected increase in German business confidence despite market plunges in China by David McHugh, The Associated Press Posted Aug 25, 2015 2:10 am MDT Last Updated Aug 25, 2015 at 3:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FRANKFURT – German companies shrugged off concerns about China’s economy and turmoil in Greece, a key survey showed. The result, however, likely did not yet reflect the latest plunges in Chinese and global stock markets.The closely watched Ifo institute index of business sentiment in Europe’s largest economy rose unexpectedly to 108.3 points for August from 108 in July, Ifo said Tuesday. Analysts had predicted a slight decrease to 107.6 points.Companies’ outlook for the coming months fell, but only slightly.The bulk of the responses came in the first two weeks of August, a period which included China’s surprise devaluation of its currency on Aug. 11 — but which preceded the dizzying stock market plunges Friday and Monday.The upbeat result comes amid uncertainty about slowing economic growth in China. The world’s second-largest economy is a major market for German companies, but worries over a slowdown there were not widely felt in the survey, even though exports have already slowed somewhat. Recent figures show that German’s economy, Europe’s largest, is increasingly supported by domestic consumer spending as well as exports.Analysts cautioned that the Ifo survey may not yet fully reflect all the turmoil.Still, there are reasons to argue that a China slowdown will not derail Germany’s economy.“German companies remain unimpressed by the current series of uncertainties and turmoil,” wrote analyst Carsten Brzeski in an email to investors.Brzeski said that a slowdown in China’s high economic growth rates was not the same as drop in output.He noted that German exports to China have already slowed in the first half of the year, without derailing the German recovery.“The geographical diversification of German exporters should cushion any further weakening of Chinese demand,” he said. “As long as other major export markets like the U.S., the U.K., Eastern Europe and the eurozone are continuing to grow or at least avoid a new slowdown, German exports should remain solid.”German companies have also looked past troubles in Greece, which agreed with eurozone creditors last week on a third bailout to rescue the government’s finances.The Ifo index is considered an early indicator for Germany’s economy. Each month some 7,000 companies are asked for their assessment of the current economic situation and their outlook for the coming months.Separately, Germany announced a budget surplus of 21.1 billion euros ($24.26 billion) in the first half of the year on healthy tax revenue and a windfall from the sale of cellphone frequencies. read more


Hydrogen fuel cell cars face obstacle few fueling stations

DETROIT – Hydrogen fuel cell cars could one day challenge electric cars in the race for pollution-free roads — but only if more stations are built to fuel them.Honda, Toyota and Hyundai have leased a few hundred fuel cell vehicles over the past three years, and expect to lease well over 1,000 this year. But for now, those leases are limited to California, which is home to most of the 34 public hydrogen fueling stations in the U.S.Undaunted, automakers are investing heavily in the technology. General Motors recently supplied the U.S. Army with a fuel cell pickup, and GM and Honda are collaborating on a fuel cell system due out by 2020. Hyundai will introduce a longer-range fuel cell SUV next year.“We’ve clearly left the science project stage and the technology is viable,” said Charles Freese, who heads GM’s fuel cell business.Like pure electric cars, fuel cell cars run quietly and emission-free. But they have some big advantages. Fuel cell cars can be refuelled as quickly as gasoline-powered cars. By contrast, it takes nine hours to fully recharge an all-electric Chevrolet Bolt using a 240-volt home charger. Fuel cells cars can also travel further between fill-ups.But getting those fill-ups presents the biggest obstacle. Fueling stations cost up to $2 million to build, so companies have been reluctant to build them unless more fuel cell cars are on the road. But automakers don’t want to build cars that consumers can’t fuel.The U.S. Department of Energy lists just 34 public hydrogen fueling stations in the country; all but three are in California. By comparison, the U.S. has 15,703 public electric charging stations, which can be installed for a fraction of the cost of hydrogen stations. There are also millions of garages where owners can plug their cars in overnight.As a result, U.S. consumers bought nearly 80,000 electric cars last year, but just 1,082 fuel cell vehicles, according to WardsAuto.That’s why automakers will keep hedging their bets and offer electric vehicles alongside hydrogen ones.Honda began leasing the 2017 Clarity fuel cell sedan earlier this year; about 100 are already on the road. At this week’s New York Auto Show, the company also introduced electric and plug-in hybrid versions of the Clarity.The plug-in hybrid can go 42 miles in electric mode before a small gas engine kicks in, Honda says. The all-electric Clarity can go 111 miles on a charge. Both will go on sale later this year.“We think going forward the powertrain market is going to be very diverse,” said Steve Center, vice-president of the environmental business development office at American Honda.Hyundai’s Genesis luxury brand also blended technology with its GV80 SUV prototype, which was revealed in New York. The GV80 is a plug-in fuel cell vehicle, which means it would get power from stored electricity as well as hydrogen. It’s not clear when — or if — the GV80 will go on sale.Fuel cell cars create electricity to power the battery and motor by mixing hydrogen and oxygen in the specially treated plates that combine to form the fuel cell stack.The technology isn’t new. GM introduced the first fuel cell vehicle, the Electrovan, in 1966. It only seated two; the back of the van housed large steel tanks of hydrogen and oxygen. It went about 150 miles between refuelings, and its hydrogen tank exploded on at least one occasion.Advances in hydrogen storage, fuel cell stacks and batteries have allowed engineers to significantly shrink those components to fit neatly inside a sedan. Oxygen is now collected from the air through the grille, and hydrogen is stored in aluminum-lined, fuel tanks that automatically seal in an accident to prevent leaks. Reducing the amount of platinum used in the stack has made fuel cell cars less expensive.Honda’s new Clarity can go 366 miles between fuelings, the longest range in the industry.The Clarity leases for $369 per month for 36 months. That’s more than the $354 monthly lease payment for the Chevrolet Bolt electric. But Honda, Toyota and Hyundai are all throwing in free hydrogen refuelling . It costs between $13 and $16 per kilogram for hydrogen, or up to $80 to fill the Clarity’s 5-kilogram capacity, according to the U.S. Energy Department.Even with that perk, analysts think sales of fuel cell vehicles will be limited until more fueling stations are built. But carmakers will still invest in fuel cells. GM’s Freese says there are many applications beyond cars, including unmanned, deep-sea vehicles or backup home power systems.“One of the reasons global car companies do something like this is they want to have a finger in the pie. Should we suddenly have to shift over, they want to be able to do it,” said Jack Nerad, an executive market analyst with Kelley Blue Book.The number of fueling stations could also grow quickly if automakers partner with governments and energy companies, as they have done in California. Earlier this year, 13 companies — including Shell and BMW — formed a council to accelerate the adoption of hydrogen as a transportation fuel.Heather McLaughlin of San Ramon, California, was one of the first customers to lease a 2017 Clarity. She says she prefers a fuel cell car over an electric because she can refuel it in minutes. And one fill-up a week more than covers her 50-mile daily commute to Benicia, where she serves as the city attorney.She recently drove the Clarity to Southern California and found plenty of stations along her route.“I like the innovation,” said McLaughlin. “It helps if we can have more of these on the road.” Hydrogen fuel cell cars face obstacle: few fueling stations by Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Press Posted Apr 17, 2017 2:09 am MDT Last Updated Apr 17, 2017 at 3:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Trump partially rolls back Obamas Cuba thaw

What are Cubans in Miami saying?“The embargo should continue. Why give credit to a country where the people don´t see a penny? They are still starving and there is no freedom whatsoever. Why should we keep feeding the people who are on top when they repress their own people.” Jose Nadal “I am 100% Republican. I agree 150% with everything Trump says and does. They should impose more sanctions against Cuba. When Obama made the agreement and restored relations with the Cuban government, he gave them everything they asked for. We received nothing from the Cuban government. This is why Trump wants to strengthen the sanctions.” Cathy Henderson“I am against the embargo. The Cuban tyranny uses the embargo as a pretext to justify that it has failed. Everything bad that happens in Cuba, they blame the embargo.” Santiago Portal Courtesy of BBC MundoA history of the US trade embargo with Cuba1959: Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro leads a guerrilla army into Havana overthrowing the Batista regime.1960: In response to Castro’s communist reforms, US breaks off diplomatic relations with Cuba and imposes a trade embargo.1962: Castro agrees to allow the Soviet Union to deploy nuclear missiles on the island bringing the US and the USSR to the brink of nuclear war.April 2009: President Barack Obama lifts restrictions on family travel and the sending of remittances to Cuba.July 2015: The US and Cuba reopen embassies in each other’s capitals and restore full diplomatic ties.March 2016: President Obama makes a three-day visit to Cuba and holds talks with President Raul Castro.

Obama and Cuban president Raul Castro took in a baseball game in Cuba (Getty Images)(BBC) US President Donald Trump says he is rolling back the Obama administration’s “completely one-sided deal with Cuba”.Speaking in Miami, Florida, he said his new policy would tighten rules affecting travel and on sending funds to the Caribbean island nation.But he is not reversing key diplomatic and commercial ties, and will not close the US embassy in Havana.Commercial flights from the US will continue, as will allowing Americans to return home with Cuban goods.Mr Trump said the Obama administration’s March 2016 deal with the “brutal” Castro government was “terrible” and “misguided”.On Friday, Mr Trump signed a presidential directive calling for tighter enforcement of a longstanding ban on American tourists going to Cuba.The new policy bans most US business transactions with the Armed Forces Business Enterprises Group, a Cuban entity involved in all sectors of the economy.However, it exempts air and sea travel, allowing US airlines and cruise lines to continue serving the island.Mr Trump had faced calls from the business community not to completely reverse his Democratic predecessor’s diplomatic rapprochement between the two former Cold War foes.Zane Kerby of the American Society of Travel Agents said before the speech it was “disappointed” at Mr Trump’s plans to “turn back the clock” in terms of expanded travel and trade between the U.S. and Cuba.“The past few years have seen a growth in business for US travel agencies, tour operators, airlines, cruise lines, hotel and other travel companies. That progress now appears to be at great risk,” he added.Granma, the Cuban government’s state-run newspaper, said the president was “stuck in a failed policy that has caused much damage to the Cuban people and has left the United States isolated”.Trump spoke during a visit to Miami (Getty Images)The Miami speech is the latest part of former President Barack Obama’s legacy that Mr Trump has moved to dismantle.He cancelled the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, announced he would withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord, and is attempting to repeal and replace Obamacare, his predecessor’s signature policy accomplishment.In Friday’s remarks, Mr Trump set out how his administration would seek to prevent US dollars from being used to fund what it regards as a repressive military-dominated government.“The profits from investment and tourism flow directly to the military,” he said to applause. “The regime take the money and owns the industry.”“We do not want US dollars to prop up a military monopoly that exploits and abuses the citizens of Cuba,” he told the audience.Earlier in the day, Vice-President Mike Pence visited Little Havana in Miami to play dominos with Cuban-Americans.Cruise ships are relatively unaffected by the announcement (Getty Images) Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related read more

47 believe flexible working hours can reduce workplace stress

first_imgJust under half (47%) of respondents believe that the introduction of flexible working hours would help to reduce workplace stress, according to research by Cascade HR.Its Stress report 2016, which surveyed 1,011 UK full and part-time employees, also found that 39% of respondents would value an early finish on Fridays to help combat workplace stress.The research also found:35% of respondents feel financial rewards such as a cash bonus would help to tackle stress at work, and 34% believe holidays in lieu would reduce stress levels.14% of respondents experience stress at work every day.20% of respondents carry work stress home with them.18% of respondents believe an office gym could help combat stress at work, and 21% think that an office masseur would have a positive impact on workplace stress levels.29% of respondents would value a space away from their desks to relax, and 27% would prefer a separate area to eat during breaks.Oliver Shaw (pictured), chief executive officer at Cascade HR, said: “It is interesting to see that the measures that employers can take which have the most significant impact on reducing workplace stress are actually relatively achievable and inexpensive.“British employers looking to create a calmer, less stressful environment for [employees] don’t need to invest in dramatic overhauls of the office environment. British employees are quite content with simple environmental enhancements; whether it’s music playing in the office or simply putting some chairs and perhaps some plants or a screen, to create a quiet, separate space within the office for relaxing during break times.”last_img read more

A look at Elementary OS 041 – Loki

first_imgA look at Elementary OS 0.4.1 – Loki by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on March 25, 2018 in Linux – Last Update: March 27, 2018 – 15 commentsSo, I’ve taken a look at a number of distributions so far, like Linux Mint, Manjaro and KDE Neon, but I figured I should show another distribution that I’d highly recommend for users who are new to GNU/Linux systems: Elementary OS.If you’re a seasoned power user, you’ll likely find Elementary OS to be rather boring, closed off, and annoying. However, I have installed Elementary OS on machines of friends who are not very computer friendly, and they have had no problems for years now, without a single complaint.Loki is based on Ubuntu 16.04, and so reaps the benefits of the Ubuntu repositories.InstallationElementary OS uses the same installer as most other Ubuntu derivatives, so if you’re comfortable installing practically any of the mainstream distros, you’ll have no issues here. I’d rather not focus on the installation process, and just say, “It went smoothly.”User InterfaceElementaryOS uses their own desktop environment called Pantheon. Pantheon most closely (in my opinion) resembles Mac OS with its design, button placement, layout, even colours. If you’ve ever used a Mac before, or are looking for a cheaper alternative, you’ll find that Elementary OS may be a smoother transition than some other distributions.There is a dock at the bottom, and the system task icons kept in the top right corner, with the applications menu station in the top left.Elementary is laid out very simply, and somewhat minimally, while still maintaining its own little bit of eye-candy at the same time. While it’s not my preferred environment, I’ll give the dev team credit, they have made a very gorgeous and smooth flowing system in regards to the UI, and its default applications.You’ll find however, that Elementary doesn’t include much in the way of visual customization. Unlike KDE or GNOME, you can’t really drastically alter the way Pantheon looks; which is fine, it’s nice how it is.One thing that drives me nuts though, is the lack of minimize button. You can maximize / window an application, and close it, but by default you are unable to minimize, unless you click on the application icon in the dock. The logic, is that the main Elementary OS Applications save their state, and reopen to that state quickly when relaunching, and so there is no real need to minimize.gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance button-layout close,minimize,maximize By using the above code in a terminal, you can get a minimize button as well, and arrange your buttons somewhat similar to Mac OS.ApplicationsOne of the selling points of Elementary OS, especially in my opinion to Mac users who are used to having a suite of software to manage everything they need in their lives, is the customized software included in Elementary OS. Managing photos, checking email, videos, music, calendar… Elementary OS has a number of applications either forked from others or built from the ground up, with redesigned interfaces to blend in seamlessly with the Pantheon environment.For surfing the web, the default browser is Epiphany; lightweight and decent, but unfortunately lacking in many features; such as the ability to watch Netflix without fighting with outdated plugins and packages. Users will want to install either Chrome or Firefox, to replace Epiphany, if they find themselves unable to do everything they need in their browser.Otherwise, you’ll find that Elementary OS doesn’t actually come with much in the way of software; only what I would call the bare-bones-essentials. However, it does have a fairly decent AppCenter application, for installing new software and managing updates. One complain I do have about the AppCenter however, is the lack of support for things like Snaps. Actually, I couldn’t even install the Snap of Spotify, until I installed Snapd itself, to give Elementary OS the ability to handle Snap files.sudo apt install snapdsnap install spotifySadly, snaps must be installed via terminal, and not AppCenter. But, again, overall for new users I would say that the AppCenter is well laid out, and easy to use; and has the massive Ubuntu repositories to use.Final thoughtsElementary OS while being a bit basic and lacking in features for more advanced users, is perfect for newcomers; runs smooth even on lighter systems, and has the support and power of Ubuntu behind it.If you’re looking for a simple system to run without all the mucking around and changing of a million settings; Elementary OS might be for you.Now you: What are your thoughts on Elementary OS? Good, bad? Let us know in the comments!Related articlesA look at Arch Linux based AntergosA look at KDE Neon – a minimal mini-distributionA look at Ubuntu 17.10 Artful AardvarkCore Linux Question and Answers For BeginnersHave a sleek, simpler NautilusSummaryArticle NameA look at Elementary OS 0.4.1 – LokiDescriptionSo, I’ve taken a look at a number if distributions so far, like Linux Mint, Manjaro and KDE Neon, but I figured I should show another distribution that I’d highly recommend for users who are new to GNU/Linux systems; Elementary OS.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Home Prices Expected to Continue Stabilizing Fitch

first_img Lower unemployment figures and higher GDP growth continue to help stabilize home prices amid a still-steady recovery, “”Fitch Ratings””: said Monday.[IMAGE]The ratings agency found in a report that home prices may plunge 9.1 percent nationally but that the figures remain below estimates [COLUMN_BREAK]of 13.1 percent from the fourth quarter.Fitch said that declines may contract by around 6 percent in lieu of inflation and benefit from improvements in macro-economic indicators, such as unemployment and GDP growth.Still, Fitch said, “”there remains a long and difficult road to get back to pre-recession levels. Though home prices are falling nationally, price movement in some regional markets is still quite volatile due largely to the volume and pace of distressed sales being processed.””The report said that still-anemic mortgage volume remains a problem even in an era of all-time highs for housing affordability, with tight underwriting, qualification standards, and credit access restricted to borrowers with healthy equity and sizable down payments.Fitch said that markets in Arizona, Nevada, and Michigan continue to follow “”steeper corrections”” while home prices in the Northeast follow slower declines as a result of foreclosure delays and fewer liquidations for homes in distress.

Our ‘go where our customers grow’ strategy has led us to new geographies and has required us to continually reinvent the way we do things,” says Dave Brazelton.“This transition of leadership is really about commitment to our customers. It gives us a top-level leadership platform to launch the company’s next chapter of growth and to serve the industry in the transformative way our mission calls on us to achieve.”This unique leadership model was recommended by Fall Creek’s board of directors after assessing the company’s growth plan, internal talents and team-based corporate culture, the company said.“I’m looking forward to seeing each member of the new leadership team work together while they also develop their individual areas of focus: Cort, on global business development and key relationships; Amelie, on strategy and company culture; and Oscar, on the management of a growing global entity,” says Roland Wolfram, the newest member of the Fall Creek board.(L-R) Oscar Verges, Amelie Brazelton Aust and Cort BrazeltonAmelie Brazelton Aust said: “When the board of directors recommended this leadership structure, Cort and I were both surprised.”“A co-CEO model had never occurred to us, but it should have. As we have spent most of 2018 diving into what this will look like, studying the pitfalls, and gaining vision into how this has worked well for other global companies, we are excited. Cort and I are as different and as similar as can be.”We challenge each other and hold each other accountable to focus opportunities, manage risk, and protect our company values. At the same time, Oscar brings decades of global corporate experience that is essential for us to enrich strategy and to bring what’s most special about Fall Creek to the entire organization and the people we serve, everywhere in the world.”Cort Brazelton said: “Our industry is on the verge of enormous change. We’ll have to continually renew our strategy and preserve what is most valuable in our culture to serve our customers.””The three of us will share that responsibility. Our father didn’t do it alone. He fostered a team atmosphere with shared decision-making, recognizing where others could fill knowledge and technical gaps. The three of us serve the organization – especially the team of directors that is empowered to run and grow the company – and our job is to clear the way forward.”Oscar Verges said: “Only eight years ago, Fall Creek was a nursery in the U.S. Pacific Northwest with some exports, licensing and business relationships abroad.”Now, true to our commitment to serve our customers and the industry, Fall Creek has bricks-and-mortar throughout the Americas and Europe.”As the company grows, maintaining our company culture and values becomes ever more important.  Collaborative decision making, serving each other and our customers, and shared leadership are principles Amelie, Cort and I vow to maintain and plan to model throughout the organization.” Blueberries in Charts: Finding opportunities in th …last_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. — It goes without saying that a matchup between a pair of struggling teams, like the one between the 3-6 Washington Redskins and 1-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week does not carry much intrigue. Arizona’s tilt with the Detroit Lions has no such problem.The Cardinals enter the game with an NFL-best 8-1 record; the Lions are one game behind them at 7-2. The winner will have the tiebreaker between the teams, and thus be in great position while battling for playoff positioning. “But hell yeah it does.”If the playoffs started Thursday, the Cardinals would have the top seed, a first-round bye and home field advantage in every game they played by virtue of their record. The Lions would be the second seed, thus giving them a bye week as well as home field advantage for any game they would play — except against the Cardinals. A Lions victory Sunday would put them in contention for the top seed, while a win for the Cardinals would extend their lead as well as guarantee the franchise its fifth winning season since moving to Arizona in 1988.Though they certainly hope to play in even bigger games down the road, this one has a lot riding on it.“This is a huge game for us,” cornerback Patrick Peterson said. “Now, from this point on, every game from this point on is going to be a huge game because now that we are the number one team not only in the NFL, but in the NFC, everyone’s gunning for us, everybody wants what we have right now, and that’s at the top of the division.“So this is a very huge game. These guys are right on our tail. These playoff implications are going to be huge at this point and time in the season because it could mean a lot in the back half of the season. We don’t want to go anywhere; we want to play at home in the playoffs.” – / 26 Top Stories center_img Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “This obviously is a big game,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday. “They’re all big at this point in time. It’s nice to be in big games. It beats the alternative. Obviously, a lot of implications hopefully down the road. Not necessarily at the end of this week, but hopefully down the road.”Arians’ counterpart in Detroit, Jim Caldwell, has a different view of the game. He says he’s not looking at this matchup as a big one for the playoffs, saying his team does not even talk about the playoffs right now.“You don’t get any awards, anything of that nature, any locks in terms of positioning and so and so forth or even entrance into that area,” he said. “That’s something that’s earned; we haven’t earned it yet. We’ve got to keep playing.”It’s true that neither team will clinch a playoff spot or win any trophy for coming out on top in this game. However, that does not mean it is just your average game, which is why Arians had no trouble answering a question of whether or not he looks at this matchup as one that will have an impact on the standings. “Hell yeah,” coach Bruce Arians said. “It’s for the No. 1 seed in the NFC this week. Just this week now; not the rest. It’s big. I feel a hell of a lot better with those four wins against the NFC East right now if we get there. That’s a long way off.last_img read more
