WASHINGTON – The Trump administration is moving ahead with Obama-era requirements to post calorie counts in restaurants, supermarkets, convenience stores and pizza delivery chains nationwide next year.Despite years of opposition by some food sellers, the Food and Drug Administration is offering only minor compromises to industry complaints about the difficulties of displaying calories at takeout chains, self-service buffets and other non-restaurant food locations.The FDA posted a preliminary guidance online Tuesday to help businesses comply with the law.Trump appointees have delayed or upended regulations passed by the Obama administration including rules for water pollution, fuel emissions and policing for-profit universities. But the menu labeling rules, championed by former first lady Michelle Obama, appear on track to take effect next May after years of delays.Behind the law is the idea that people may think twice about buying their daily doughnut at the gas station if they see how many hundreds of calories it contains.“When you arm consumers with reliable information, they are going to make better decisions, smarter and more informed decisions about their diet,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Providing this information is more important now than ever because more people are eating their meals away from the home.”In a key move, the FDA rejected requests from pizza chains, including Domino’s Pizza, which wanted to post calorie information on their websites instead of each store location, arguing that most customers don’t visit their physical locations. However, the agency said stores have a variety of options for displaying calorie counts beyond traditional menu boards, including electronic kiosks, tablet devices and even paper menus.“At first glance, there appears to be some progress, showing that the FDA is listening to concerns,” Domino’s spokesman Tim McIntyre said in an email.However, he added that the company still wants Congress to intervene to change the law. Industry groups are backing legislation in the House of Representatives that addresses many of their concerns.Pizza chains have argued that displaying calorie counts in their locations doesn’t make any sense because most of their customers don’t come into the store. Grocery and convenience stores have said the rules would be more burdensome for them because they typically have more limited offerings than restaurants and one central ordering point.The FDA offered clarifications that it said could reduce the workload for some businesses. The agency said posters, coupons, mailings and other advertising materials are not considered menus and do not have to list calories.The agency will take comments on its guidelines for 60 days before moving to finalizing them.The restaurant industry has backed the law and major chains including Starbucks, Subway and McDonald’s are already posting calorie counts. New York City and several other cities have passed laws requiring restaurant chains to list the information, but the federal rule would apply to more places and require them in non-traditional food outlets such as gas stations and movie theatres.Most of the setbacks to implementing the 2010 law came during the Obama years. The FDA took more than four years to write the rules and establishments originally had until the end of 2015 to comply. But that deadline was pushed back twice. Last year, the Trump administration pushed the date back again to May 2018 to review how to “reduce costs and enhance flexibility.”Consumer advocates who lobbied for years to pass the law expressed relief after reviewing the FDA guidelines.“We were worried about the Trump administration caving to industry and weakening the information people get when they eat out,” said Margo Wootan, a lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “That didn’t happen today and that’s great news.”

Captain America and Spiderman are seeking to dominate the Chinese box office in the coming weeks, proving that U.S. patriotic superheroes can overcome China’s leeriness of foreign films if they promise big money. Chinese authorities, wary of outside cultural influences and competition, restrict the number of foreign movies shown in the mainland’s cinemas to 34 each year.

Only a handful of this year’s Oscar winners have been shown so far in mainland China, including the 3-D space odyssey “Gravity,” highlighting how visual spectacle translates better than dialogue-driven drama. Oscar best picture “12 Years A Slave” and the other leading Oscar-nominated movie “American Hustle,” which in the end went home empty-handed, haven’t been shown here.“The American movies that have succeeded in this market in a big way typically have special effects, lend themselves to 3D and are emotionally satisfying stories,” said Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, which is behind the new Spider-Man film, in an interview in Beijing.“I think we’re all learning about the Chinese marketplace, it’s growing so quickly and probably the demographic make-up of the audience is changing, but it seems like there’s a young audience, romance seems to work pretty well here, adventure heroes, I think those are ingredients that work well.”Hollywood is keen to get a big slice of China’s movie market, which is now the world’s second biggest after the United States. Movies increasingly contain China elements to appeal to the audience, such as “Gravity’s” inclusion of a Chinese space station and the casting of actress Fan Bingbing in a Chinese version of “Iron Man 3.”At a news conference in Beijing this week to promote “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which is scheduled for release in mainland China on May 4, two days after its U.S. release, the movie’s producer was asked whether the audience could expect to see female characters from China in sequels.“Emphatically yes, you will see that,” responded Matt Tomach, explaining that “China’s an enormous part of the movie-going world and our community.”Zhao Zhiyong, an official at Beijing city’s bureau of press, publication, radio, film and television, said that for a foreign film to be successful in China, it should have a story line that is “touching and can arouse empathy.”“The film has to be able to produce strong emotion in Chinese viewers, and this is related to cultural understanding. This doesn’t mean that the film has to feature Chinese actors or actresses, rather it should know what Chinese are interested in,” said Zhao in an interview Thursday.China’s authoritarian government strictly controls print media, television, radio and the Internet. Movies have to clear censorship, and those that fail don’t necessarily know why, although China censors according to political sensitivities and cuts excessively sexual and violent material.One surprise approval last year was Quentin Tarantino’s violent slave-revenge movie “Django Unchained,” which debuted only to be pulled on opening day for unspecified “technical reasons.” After undergoing an edit, it returned a month later.Robert Cain, a Los Angeles-based producer and entertainment industry consultant, said Hollywood movies that make it to China are usually visual-effects driven, action or animated movies that appeal to young adults aged about 18-25 — those films likely to make the most money.“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” involving the warrior soldier dedicated to defending U.S. ideals such as truth, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, is a Marvel Studio title that is scheduled for release in China on April 4.China has led overseas box office for every Marvel Studio title since the 2012 release “The Avengers,” according to information from The Walt Disney Company, which owns Marvel Entertainment.“Apparently the authorities there don’t mind the rah-rah America kind of movies,” said Cain. “I think maybe 10 years ago the attitude would have been a little bit different, but now I think they feel the audience has matured and is sophisticated enough to know these are really just fantasy stories.“Anything that remotely has a sniff of being anti-China is a completely different story but that’s not the case with these superhero movies, I think they just see them as being big moneymaking fantasy vehicles,” he said.
David Byers, Interim Chief Executive, Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) notes the industry’s latest ad in its Making the Future Possible campaign, promoting the industry’s use of innovation including drone technology.“Australia’s world-class mining workforce is the result of industry innovation, attraction of talented employees and investment in employee skills and training. Innovation is central to maintaining Australia’s comparative advantage in mining and helps drive high-value, high-wage jobs in a range of scientific and highly-skilled professional occupations.”Drones are important to the minerals sector’s environmental, cultural heritage, safety and productivity performance including:conducting site environmental surveys and monitoring impacts on wildlife such as turtle nesting sitesimproving road safety by monitoring traffic, road conditions and hazards and inspecting overhead cranes, towers and roofs of tall buildings to avoid working at heightmaking it faster to gather more information about mine sites, saving millions of dollars when compared with using planes for survey workmapping and digitally recording areas of Indigenous cultural heritage.The Making the Future Possible campaign – which is fact-based and non-political in tone and content – outlines how the Australian minerals industry provides jobs, raises living standards and builds future opportunities for young Australians.“The campaign also emphasises that the minerals industry is a major contributor to and driver of innovation in the Australian economy.“Future opportunities and growth make the Australian minerals sector an exciting place to forge a career in technology and innovation.“The minerals workforce is younger, better-paid, better-trained and has a much higher share of Indigenous employees than all-industry averages.“Average full-time weekly pay in the mining sector is A$2,610, which is 67% higher than the all-industries average, and almost all jobs (98%) are full-time – the largest proportion of all industries.”The ad was filmed at Rio Tinto locations including the Perth head office and Remote Operations Centre and the Mesa A site near Karratha, Western Australia.
MINISTER FOR JUSTICE Alan Shatter has sharply criticised Independent TD Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan in an unexpected personal attack over penalty points.In a statement released just 45 minutes after the publication of two reports into penalty points cancellations by Gardaí, the Minister said Flanagan had been due to meet with investigating Gardaí about his allegations that he had penalty points unexpectedly quashed, but had cancelled the meeting and said he didn’t wish to engage any further.Alan Shatter said he was disappointed ‘but not entirely surprised’ that despite Flanagan’s ‘self-serving’ public statements, he had refused to engage with the investigation.“I am disappointed but not entirely surprised that Deputy Flanagan, despite all his public statements and having written a very self-serving letter to me on 21 March 2013 regarding the matter, naming individuals he claimed were involved and stating that he believed ‘the truth about the situation must be established’ and that he ‘would have a very strong argument for having the points removed’ is unwilling to engage further with the Garda investigation,” the Minister said this afternoon.Shatter said that Flanagan’s claim that TDs were exempt from penalty points if they were travelling to the Dáil – which Flanagan says he was informed of by Gardaí – is “simply incorrect”. He cited the Constitution, which says that members of the Oireachtas have immunity from arrest, but not for less serious offences.Alan Shatter said the investigation into the cancellation of Flanagan’s penalty points is almost complete but investigators want written confirmation of some details from the TD so that the investigation can be brought to a close.It is not the first time that the Justice Minister has strongly criticised Flanagan. In February, Shatter told the Dáil that he found it “a little bit difficult not to totally throw up” when listening to the Independent TD talk about alleged Garda corruption.Earlier this year the Independent TD revealed that Gardaí had removed his penalty points and told him that he was exempt because he had been travelling to the Dáil at the time the points were awarded. Flanagan strongly criticised the Gardaí for quashing his penalty points.Read: Three ‘possible breaches’ identified in penalty points report > Read: Ming: I want my penalty points back >
Dengue : l’épidémie antillaise continueFrance – Les ministères de la Santé et de l’Outre-mer appellent à la mobilisation de tous pour enrayer l’épidémie de dengue qui sévit actuellement.L’épidémie a débuté fin 2009 et près de 20.000 cas évocateurs de dengue ont été comptabilisés depuis en Guadeloupe. La Martinique est également touchée, avec près de 13.000 cas recensés. Cette grippe tropicale peut avoir de graves conséquences. A titre d’exemple, un enfant de moins de 3 ans est décédé. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Roselyne Bachelot et sa consœur, Marie-Luce Penchard, appellent donc à la mobilisation de tous. Elles rappellent les gestes à effectuer pour prévenir les dangereuses piqures du moustique Aedes, vecteur de la dengue : utiliser des moustiquaires, porter des vêtements couvrants et user de répulsifs pour dormir, vider systématiquement l’eau stagnante, etc. Il faut également consulter un médecin de toute urgence lorsque les premiers symptômes apparaissent, comme une fièvre brutale, par exemple. La France n’est pas la seule à être touchée puisque l’OMS estime que 50 millions de personnes sont infectées par la dengue chaque année dans le monde.Le 29 juillet 2010 à 12:34 • Emmanuel Perrin
Le web français perturbé par une panne chez TelehouseUne panne électrique est survenue ce mercredi perturbant les clients de l’hébergeur de datacenters, dont Free et OVH. Une panne électrique s’est signalée mercredi 11 avril vers 10h30. A ce moment-là, plusieurs clients de l’hébergeur de datacenters n’ont pu accéder à leurs sites durant une demi-heure. L’incident, qui a aussi affecté les services de Free et d’OVH, a été causé par une coupure électrique dans l’un des datacenters parisiens de Telehouse, situé boulevard Voltaire.Cet incident a été confirmé par l’hébergeur. Il aurait eu lieu au premier étage de son datacenter Telehouse 2 (TH2)Sur le compte Twitter de Telehouse, on pouvait lire : “Disjonction du Masterpact de Voltaire 1er étage ouest à 10h17. Remise en service à 10h53. Clients en 48V et dual-feed non impactés.”Le datacenter héberge des serveurs liés à de nombreux sites Web ainsi que des équipements déployés par les opérateurs pour raccorder leurs réseaux. Free ou encore OVH ont été victimes de l’incident. Plusieurs sites hébergés par le groupe américain ont été perturbés voire coupés durant plusieurs heures. La rupture d’une canalisation d’eau permettant d’alimenter le circuit de refroidissement serait à l’origine de cette panne. Le 12 avril 2012 à 09:06 • Maxime Lambert
Stay on target 2019 Tech Trends Worth Getting Hyped AboutYou Can Finally Buy A Terabyte SD Card Thanks to Lexar Tiny e-paper displays have popped up in smartwatches. They’ve even started replacing printed price tags on some grocers’ shelves. Now they’re being used as keys on one of the most customizable keyboards ever made.It’s called Nemeio and it’s turning heads at CES 2019. The keyboard is rechargeable and can connect to computers, tablets, and phones via USB-A, USB-C, or Bluetooth.What earned it a CES Innovation Award, however, is its 81 backlit e-paper keys. You can customize them any way you choose using a companion app and switch configurations on the fly as you change tasks. Move from Photoshop to Outlook to respond to an email and Nemeio can switch up its layout to put the commands you need within easy reach.Need to communicate or comment on code in more than one language? Nemeio can reconfigure itself on the fly to meet your multilingual needs.Nemeio’s creators plan to start shipping keyboards later in 2019. They haven’t settled on an exact price yet, but they’re shooting for somewhere between $300 and $500.That’s not a shocking figure for a keyboard like this. More than a decade ago, Art.Lebedev Studio dropped jaws with keyboards that had tiny displays integrated into their keys. Sadly, the Optimus lineup was a tad on the expensive side.Sure, the Optimus Mini sold for about a hundred bucks, but it only had three keys. The Optimus Maximus sold for nearly $1500 when went up for pre-order back in 2007.A more recent comparable is the Sonder keyboard. Early backers were able to secure their own for just $199, and you can still pre-order one for that price today.Sonder’s keyboard was designed to be used with Macs, however. That’s not necessary a dealbreaker for Windows users, but the command and option keys aren’t e-paper so they can’t be customized.Nemeio is 100 percent customizable… and even if it’s reportedly not the greatest thing to type on there will no doubt be people out there who are willing to buy it just for the cool factor.More on Geek.com:Google Assistant Will Soon Be Available on One Billion DevicesBread Bot That Makes 10 Loaves Per Hour Lets You Load Up on CarbsGarmin Unveils Its First 4G LTE-Enabled Smartwatch
Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas has opened up about interest from Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid but claimed he is committed to Celta Vigo.Aspas has made a bright start to the season, having found the back of the net twice in four league games for Celta.And following a prolific campaign(22 goals) last season, the Spanish striker has attracted attention from some Europe’s top clubs during the transfer window.But he told Radio Marca that he had no intentions of leaving the club where he first made his name a decade ago.Aspas said: “I personally did not call another team. It is true that several got in touch with my brother and my agent.“I have always been honest; anyone interested had to agree with Celta first, and then we would see if it interested me later.Zidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.“There were important teams, interest from Real Madrid and Atletico came out in the press, and I imagine it was true.“The club did not say anything to me. I suppose there were talks and nothing went any further.”Aspas has less than four years left to run on his current contract, which he signed in April 2017 and will keep him at Celta until 2022.“I have always seen myself at Celta for as many years as possible,” he added.“That’s why I signed a contract extension.“I hope to speak with the club in the future and continue as many years as possible.”
3 Sport and Outdoors Motorcycles Auto Tech 20 Photos Andrew Hoyle/Roadshow Stand on a corner of a street in almost any city today and you’ll see a huge range of electric bicycles being ridden by morning commuters. Most tend to follow the small, light and folding trend. But the Uni Moke Classic by Urban Drivestyle doesn’t. It’s massive and weighs as much as a cathedral. But what it lacks in portability, it more than makes up for in sheer badassery.With its gigantic LED lamp on the front, long seat and utterly enormous Kenda off-road tyres, the Uni Moke’s design is more reminiscent of classic motorbikes from the 1930s than today’s slick, modern commuter bikes. But it’s still a bicycle at heart. You’ll find pedals either side, with seven-speed Shimano gears and tucked into the back wheel is a Bafang hub motor that provides electric assistance to your pedalling. Comments The electric assistance settings run from 1 (a gentle help, but you’re doing most of the work) through to 9, which lets you sit back, be lazy and enjoy the ride. Assistance levels are easy to control using the up and down buttons on the left hand grip. The motor is available in either 250-watt or 500-watt variants, depending on where you live. In the UK, you’ll need to get the lower 250-watt model because anything above has to be registered, taxed and insured as a motorcycle. In the US, you can opt for the full 500 watts, but the top speed is electronically limited to 20 mph.A powerful stance Andrew Hoyle/Roadshow But what’s it like to ride?As a cruising bike, it’s wonderful. Setting the assistance at about halfway and finding an open countryside trail is my favourite way to enjoy this thing. It might be big and heavy but once you get going it’s easy to maneuver and you won’t struggle to negotiate tight paths between trees, cars or people. Urban Drivestyle reckons you’ll get up to 60 kilometers (37 miles) of range from the battery, though of course that depends on terrain, your weight and how hard you hammer the motor. Based on my time with the bike, I’d say that figure is pretty accurate. Whacking the assistance up to the max (or using the optional throttle, if your local laws allow) is exhilarating, with the bike casually tearing up distances as the wind rushes through your hair. Those immense wheels mean that rough, stony ground is no problem. Just bear in mind there’s no suspension on it, so it’s probably not a bike you’d want to ride down mountains.Those are some fat tyres Andrew Hoyle/Roadshow It’s also not the bike for you if you’re an athlete looking to hit a new personal best time on your favourite route. Sure, you can work up a sweat on this thing, but it’s set up more for casual cruising than for a real workout. I wore jeans, boots and a leather jacket when riding it, rather than a lycra bodysuit, and boy did I feel at home.Getting it home is more of an issue, particularly if you live in a smaller urban apartment. Its whopping 33-kilogram (72-pound) weight means you won’t want to carry it up a flight of stairs, while its bulky size means leaving it in a narrow corridor can be impractical. I opted for the latter, but had to get an Allen key to fold in the handlebars each time I parked it to allow people to get past. Ideally, you’d have a garage or garden shed where you can comfortably leave it, only bringing the removable battery pack inside to recharge. Basically, if you’ve got room for a motorbike, you’ve got room for this.Just look at it. Andrew Hoyle/Roadshow It may not be ideal if you’ve got a small place, and the 2,890-euro price (about $3,240, £2,600, AU$4,670) means it’s not exactly cheap, but it’s unlike any bike I’ve seen on the roads before. I loved riding it, loved feeling like a retro badass and loved the appreciative stares I got from passersby. Like a sports car, it’s hugely impractical. But, also like a sports car, that impracticality pales into insignificance against the thrill it offers to anyone who rides it.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser released a statement saying she plans to create a Green Bank in the city. (Courtesy PhotoD.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) will send legislation to the D.C. Council to start a publicly-funded financial institution, known as a Green Bank. This entity will focus on investing in environmentally-safe and sensitive technologies and products. “As the nation’s capital, we need to lead the way when it comes to protecting and preserving the environment,” Bowser said in a statement on March 15. “By creating a Green Bank, we will create more jobs for D.C. residents, which will allow us to continue our push for inclusive prosperity, and will take an important step toward reaching the sustainability goals set forth in Climate Ready D.C.”Climate Ready D.C. is Bowser’s program addressing climate change in the city that results in adverse weather conditions like heatwaves, storms, and flooding.In its Oct. 12, 2016 edition, WalletHub, a widely-distributed personal finance web site, rated the District the sixth greenest city in the country, with San Francisco as No. 1. The factors used to determine the ranking were greenhouse-gas emissions per capita, smart-energy policies and initiatives, green space, bike score, number of farmers’ markets per capita, and walking score. London is the only other world city to have a Green Bank.If the District were a state, it would be the greenest state in the nation based on building space per capita, according to the U.S. Green Building Council’s annual list of top states for LEED Green building.The Green Bank will be capitalized with $7 million in taxpayer funds which will then used to offer loans, leases, credit enhancements, and other financial services to close funding gaps for clean energy projects. The bank would invest in technology products such as solar energy systems, energy efficient measures, water management systems, and clean transportation infrastructure and equipment to support projects ranging from greening government and private sector buildings to support placing solar panels on individual homes.Former Ward 6 D.C. Council member Tommy Wells is the director of the District’s Department of Energy and the Environment and is an advocate of the Green Bank. Wells told the AFRO that Black businesses can benefit from the bank.“The Green Bank will put a lot more capital into the city’s green infrastructure,” he said. “Minority businesses in the city already play a role in the solar power development, retro fitting buildings, high energy efficiency light bulbs and heaters. These products are especially needed in low-income neighborhoods.”The Green Bank would ease the financing of clean energy technology projects by removing upfront costs, leveraging private investment and the wise use of public funds. Wells said that Black businesses have a major hurdle to cross and the Green Bank could help them with that obstacle.“The problem is access to capital,” he said. “The Green Bank can help Black businesses get loans at low rates for green projects and arrange reasonable payment terms. The problem with many businesses is getting a loan in the first place and the Green Bank can guarantee loans with a private bank.”The D.C. Council’s Committee on Transportation and the Environment, which is chaired by D.C. Council member Mary Cheh (D-Ward 3), will take up Bowser’s Green Bank proposal. “I think that helping minority businesses in the city should be the number one issue with this Green Bank in my mind,” Joshua Lopez, a small-business owner in the District told the AFRO.”This bank could help minority businesses develop with investments and they will grow. However, for this to work, it has to be intentional on the part of the government.”
Sushi Striker is a Tastier Puzzle Game on Nintendo SwitchWhat If I Told You The Matrix Code is Just Sushi Recipes? Stay on target Star Wars has a whole menagerie of awesome items you can buy to show off your fandom. If you want a Death Star waffle maker, you can get one. You can even get Han and Leia hand towels. But more importantly, how you can get a set of special soy sauce dishes by way of Rowen Japan. They’re all meant to give your sushi a little touch of the Force to keep it safe. Because you never know what kind of nefarious things soy sauce is getting up to.The dishes include R2-D2, C-3PO-, Darth Vader, and a stormtrooper included in the set, which looks even more impressive when they’re filled with soy sauce or your condiment of choice. They were made like this on purpose, so when your soy sauce hits the dish, you can see the tastiness even better than before. They were made by master craftsmen out of Arita ware, or Japanese porcelain made from the area of Arita in Northwest Kyushu, Japan. There were no happy mistakes here, just an excellent dish that’s meant to perfectly complement how much sushi and soy sauce you get in each bite and so the character looks good, too. Beautiful.AdChoices广告All of the soy sauce dishes come in a special wooden box with the Star Wars logo on the front, so they fit all nicely when you want to put them away post-sushi party. They’ll cost you about $101.03 if you want to purchase a set online, and you should if you take your sushi as seriously as you take Star Wars. Just make sure you don’t get caught up in any sushi traps with flavors you don’t know. It isn’t a good look to spit out flavors in the company of guests, and you wouldn’t want to sully your adorable new dishes.You can, however, pick up these super cute R2-Q5 and R2-D2 soy sauce dispensers right now for a lot less.
In her exhibition titled Traditional Beats, Anuradha Thakur depicts the life and culture of tribal communities across India through her paintings. They portray tribal culture rooted in tradition and tribal life ever blossoming in accordance with the realities of existence.’The selection of paintings in the my collection focuses on rituals that create bonding, whether it be for newly-weds or for the community. Rituals, formal or informal, generate togetherness. The textures, patterns, forms, shapes and hues represent the regional flavour of traditional art from different areas of India and their combination is such that the rawness and dignity of tribal life are juxtaposed to create a spontaneous pleasing expression,’ said Thakur. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Thakur’s signature style is the use of black and white that defines strength complemented by earthen colours. The colour Black represents strength and sense of community that the people enhance by holding on to tradition and the earthen hues reflect the diversity of individual experience and expression.

The canal would end the traffic jams. It will change the face of the provinces and make the country a global reference,” she said.Public Works and Transport (MOPT) Minister Carlos Villalta said this would be the most ambitious and expensive project in the country’s history. Villalta said that the first phase of the project is already underway: analyzing the documents that make up the CANSEC proposal.“The impact of this project would be similar to that of Panama Canal, as it would create about 80,000 jobs for the country,” Villalta said.Initial estimates indicate that completion of the project would take five years. The feasibility studies of the project will be ready in a year, while the public bidding and the signing of the contract with the selected firm would take 18 months. Construction would take about three years, MOPT reported.Minister Villalta also said that four investor groups have already shown interest in financing the project.

Combine that with the fact he completed less than 60-percent of his passes and failed to connect with Larry Fitzgerald after the first quarter, and it’s safe to say things cannot get much worse for Lindley over the final five weeks of the season.Nonetheless, it’s important when evaluating the 23-year-old to remember that he’s less than a year removed from San Diego State, and that rarely are sixth-round selections anything more than projects during their rookie season.While Kurt Warner and Ron Jaworksi seemed to understand that, ESPN.com’s Ross Tucker apparently didn’t feel the same way.Speaking on the Football Today Podcast, Tucker was asked to address the Cardinals’ game Sunday against the New York Jets and wasted little time going after Arizona’s rookie quarterback.“I don’t have a ton of faith in Mark Sanchez, but I have less in Ryan Lindley,” Tucker said. “Watching that guy play against the Rams, he threw some of the worst passes I’ve ever seen in the NFL.“Those interceptions were just awful.”Lindley was not known for his accuracy coming out of college, and that will definitely be a point of emphasis over the final few weeks of the season. With that said, taking shots at a quarterback with 72 career attempts is a bit much. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Outside of two first-half touchdown drives and a 312-yard passing day, quarterback Ryan Lindley looked every bit the part of a rookie making his NFL debut in the Arizona Cardinals’ 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams last Sunday.Not only did he throw four interceptions on the day, Lindley of course also became a footnote, as cornerback Janoris Jenkins became the first rookie in Rams history to return two interceptions back for touchdowns in the same game.
