London: Former England captain Nasser Hussain sees Sourav Ganguly as the man who changed Indian cricket. “Indian cricket changed because of Ganguly,” Hussain said at the India Today show Salaam Cricket 2019. Hussain said that the personality of the Indian team changed while Ganguly was captain. “Sourav was never bothered about being friends with people. He transformed them from a nice cricketing nation to a ruthless one which was only interested in winning,” he said.

Apart from recording a number of famous series wins, India reached the final of the 2003 World Cup under Ganguly. Hussain also said that current India captain Virat Kohli can break a number of records that the legendary Sachin Tendulkar has set. “Virat is not worried about anything else other than winning games for the country. That is his greatest asset as a captain, I feel. I thought there never will be someone to replace Sachin, but Kohli is going to break them all — just a phenomenal achievement by a phenomenal player,” said Hussain.

In fact, it was during the practice sessions on Saturday that Kohli injured his thumb. While it wasn’t initially clear if it was due to batting at the nets or during fielding drills, it was later confirmed that he has not sustained any serious injury. South Africa on the other hand have a tough job at hand as they have lost both the games they have played in the World Cup. While they were thrashed in the first game by favourites and hosts England, Faf du Plessis’ men were also beaten on Sunday by Bangladesh.
By Jorge Barrera and Kenneth JacksonAPTN National NewsAboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan is “hiding behind his staffers” and “ducking” questions on his relationship to Bruce Carson, a former aide to Prime Minister Stephen Harper currently under an RCMP investigation, the NDP said Wednesday.Timmins-James Bay NDP MP Charlie Angus said Duncan’s office was “at the centre” of the Carson scandal that broke after APTN National News revealed the former political operative nicknamed “The Mechanic,” was lobbying for a water company that had a financial deal with his fiancée, a former Ottawa escort, on the sale of filtration systems to impoverished First Nation communities.“At the centre of it is his office and the fact that Bruce Carson and his girlfriend were going to hit up a bunch of impoverished First Nations communities,” said Angus, in the House of Commons during Question Period. “What is (Duncan) trying to hide…what does he know and what was his involvement with the Bruce Carson gang?”Duncan responded saying he couldn’t comment because the matter was under investigation.“We know that the member from Timmins-James Bay likes to throw dirt around this place,” said Duncan. “All I can say is that it is under investigation, therefore it is inappropriate to comment. The member knows that and I don’t know why he is pursuing this type of questioning.”Duncan cancelled a planned interview with APTN National News on the budget Tuesday after his staff discovered that the minister would also face questions on his relationship to Carson.Carson is currently facing probes from the RCMP, the Lobbying Commissioner and the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner. The lobbying probe is ongoing, while the ethics probe was suspended last November. None of the investigations have reached their conclusions.The OPP is also investigating the water company, H2O Pros, for allegedly defrauding customers.“Talk about investigation. We have the Lobbying Commissioner, we have the Ethics Commissioner, we have the RCMP, we have the OPP,” said Angus. “When you think about the Conservative Party and Bruce Carson, this man is like a one-man stimulus package for the police.”APTN National News reported this week that the lobbying investigation was scrutinizing Carson’s claimed links to Duncan.Carson met with at least two officials in Duncan’s office about the water company and its product in January 2011, two months before Harper called for the three-pronged investigation. Carson and the president of the now shuttered company met at least three times with Aboriginal Affairs department officials in the fall of 2010.Carson told APTN National News that Duncan’s office was aware of the company and its product and he was hoping to involve Environment Minister Peter Kent in the discussions.Duncan and Kent both denied ever discussing the water company with Carson.Questions still linger over how Carson managed to obtain “secret” level clearance to work in the Prime Minister’s Office, despite being convicted on three counts of fraud in the 1990s. He was disbarred and convicted on two counts of fraud and sentenced to 18 months in jail in the 1980s. Carson also declared bankruptcy in 1993.“How a four time convicted fraudster gets an all-access-pass into the Prime Minister’s Office remains a mystery,” said Angus, during question period. “But we know that wherever Bruce Carson goes he leaves a lot of ethical violations and a lot of unanswered questions.”email@example.comKennethbrianjackson@gmail.com

TORONTO — Sears Canada has been given approval to begin liquidation sales Friday at the 59 locations it plans to close.Ontario Superior Judge Barbara Conway approved the motion Tuesday.Earlier in the day, Sears lawyer Jeremy Dacks said the company wanted to start sales of its merchandise, furniture, fixtures and equipment as soon as possible so it can “maximize” benefits for its stakeholders.The liquidation sales will only occur at the 59 stores that are set for closure. They will begin Friday and run until Oct. 12, with the majority to be overseen by a third-party liquidator.Here are the stores Sears is closing:Current employees in the stores pegged for liquidation will be asked to stay on the job until the sales are complete and the locations are shut down.The beleaguered department store owner has been operating under court protection from creditors since June 22 when it announced its plan to shutter 59 stores and cut approximately 2,900 jobs.Last week, Ontario Superior Court Judge Glenn Hainey gave the company the green light to begin the process of putting itself up for sale. He also gave the retailer approval to pay $9.2 million in retention bonuses to executives and other key employees.Is Sears Canada closing the store in your neighbourhood?

I won’t lie: This is a tough one. There’s a lot about this film that just doesn’t work, and it feels like something that really needed a few more passes through editing or a longer run time to move around in. But there are other parts that work so damn well, the whole thing is so well-intentioned and it’s so nice to see Tim Burton back making something close to a good movie for a change (I mean, I guess Big Eyes was okay, but even I keep forgetting that actually came out). I’m inclined to be perhaps kinder to it than I may have been otherwise.In any case: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children feels like something that was almost tailor made for Burton’s sensibilities – which actually makes it all the more amazing that it’s any good since you could say exactly that about Alice In Wonderland and that fucking Willy Wonka movie, and those were both so bad I went to see a doctor afterwards.The whole thing is based on a series of YA books the conceit of which was author Ransom Riggs taking a collection of strange old photos of unexplained phenomena largely involving children and building a story around them… which ends up feeling significantly less quaintly inventive once you realize the story he built was the story of X-Men.I’m not even exaggerating, either – for all the agreeable idiosyncratic flourish, the material plays like somebody tried to imagine what a “circa-1994 Tim Burton version” of the X-Men movies would be and then managed to hand the movie version off to the actual Tim Burton.Sing along if you know the words: There are people called “Peculiars” who are born with genetically-gifted superhuman abilities that also make them strange and ostracized from normal human society. Most of them are good and want to be left alone, but some of them are evil and want to kill the good ones and (I think) also rule the world. Eva Green’s Miss Peregrine is a good Peculiar charged with keeping a group of children safe in a makeshift orphanage/boarding-school hidden from the outside world in a stable time-loop permanently fixed in 1942 Wales.Our hero is a seemingly normal teenager played by Asa Butterfield who ends up traveling back through the loop and meeting this odd lot by following clues left by his mysteriously murdered grandfather; only to discover that he himself is Peculiar and (wouldn’t you just know it?) blessed with a specific super-power needed to protect them from the evil Peculiars led by Samuel L. Jackson as what might be the most fucking terrifying villain in a kids’ movie since Who Framed Roger Rabbit’s Judge Doom.I can’t stress that point enough: The bad guys in this are scary as all hell, and when we finally get the reveal of what it is they’re doing it comes in the form of an extended gross-out gore gag that I’m kind of shocked made it into a family movie. But it’s also illustrative of what works best about the overall film.I’ll ride it for being way too similar to X-Men and also Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and all the other look-alike YA magical-school/camp/refuge series; but where it differentiates itself is by being shockingly grotesque and weird and disturbing and above all else extremely reminiscent of Burton’s oeuvre from the period before he decided to double-down on being little more than “Hot Topic Chris Columbus.”And when that side of the material is front and center, Miss Peregrine is firing on all cylinders and kicks a decidedly strong amount of ass. The kids all have interestingly realized abilities, the casting is on point (Eva Green doing the stern-yet-nurturing British headmistress routine? To borrow a quote from Patton Oswalt: Which gods did I please!?), the bad guys and monsters are suitably horrifying and you can feel Burton’s long-atrophied creative muscles flexing again whenever it’s time to dive back into his familiar Ray Harryhausen meets German Expressionism meets Roger Corman wheelhouse.Unfortunately, to get there you’ve got to first slog through some setup that’s roughly just as fucking tedious as this stuff always is. It has the same annoying problem as the first two Potters and really almost all of these Young Adult franchise-movies end up having. In order for everything to play out once it gets going, we first have to understand how it all works; and that means an overlong first act loaded with exposition and introductions, a regular sized third act that’s all payoff-action and spectacle, and a second act that feels rushed and truncated… which is a problem because Act 2 is sort of where the emotional core of the movie is meant to go.The stakes of the story are supposed to be that Butterfield feels an immediate attachment to this place and is compelled to put his life on the line (not to mention forsaking not only a normal human existence but potentially his entire 21st century existence) to protect his new friends, but all the places where that connection would’ve happened for him and for us have been rushed through in order to accommodate all the narrative machinery. As a result, we’re made to understand how everything is able to happen functionally without really being invited to care why it’s happening emotionally or psychologically.To cite only the most obvious example: The “tactile” part of his motivation is meant to be a burgeoning romance with a female Peculiar that rears its head so inorganically I genuinely wondered if a scene was missing from the print.So when the big finale rolls around and it’s time to do the X-Men/Harry Potter/etc “students must use their skills in the real world to pull off a rescue and fight the bad guys” action sequence, you get which story threads are coming together in terms of how a love triangle plays out, who’s got a self-esteem issue to get over, who’s got differences to set aside, who has something to prove or ovrercome, etc because you can see the pieces all laid out. However, you just don’t feel it like you should because the movie had to rush through the parts where all that should’ve been taking shape instead of letting it sink in naturally – which also has the effect of blunting the impact of certain plot twists that should be huge emotional gut-punches but just… aren’t, because there’s no time to take a breath and feel the weight of it.On the other hand… “big ideas, iconic characters, great atmosphere, gorgeous visuals… doesn’t really hang together as a cohesive story” in some respects could be viewed as one more thing that makes it feel like a “vintage” Tim Burton movie (let’s face it: Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, the first two Batman movies, Mars Attacks etc are celebrated justly for many things, but rock-solid story structure isn’t one of them). So perhaps an adjustment of expectation is in order.Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is a good movie that comes frustratingly close to being great, but on balance I’m recommending it.**1/2 (out of 4)

(Alaska Jewish Museum graphic)A family story of the early gold rush days in Alaska was featured in Anchorage on May 14th at the Alaska Jewish Museum. The documentary, A Rose in Candle, was directed by Anchorage history enthusiast Russ Reno and tells the story of a young Jewish woman who was a violist from Romania.Rosa Robinson toured Europe and then the U.S. with a family orchestra in the early 1900s. She married in Seattle and moved to Candle with her husband to mine gold. Rosa’s granddaughter Beverly Churchill recorded her grandmother’s stories.Churchill and Reno spoke with Alaska Public Media’s Lori Townsend about the film.Listen nowCHURCHILL: When the orchestra settled in Seattle, she was the conductor, at that time, of the orchestra, which was unusual in those days. So I kinda like to think of her as an early feminist.TOWNSEND: And did they come to Alaska specifically because the lure of gold was there?CHURCHILL: Well, she met her husband in Seattle and he came out because his father, my great-grandfather was a gold rusher. He came originally to the Klondike and then he, when gold was discovered in Nome, he came over to Nome. So yeah, he was very involved with the mines and the Gold Rush. But my grandmother was there just because she happened to be married to his son.TOWNSEND: Russ, I want to get you in here now. Russ Reno, you’re the director for this film, A Rose in Candle, which is Beverly Churchill’s grandmother’s story. How did you get involved in this? How did you even hear about it?RENO: Wow. What an amazing story it is. Beverly approached me; she had these old cassette tapes, and she wanted to have them put onto a DVD. So I said, “Sure. I’ll help you with that.” And I did, we got them over and put them on there. Well, I started listening to these stories, I thought, “This is amazing. This is some really cool stuff here.” So I went back to Beverly, and I said, “Beverly, how would you like to put this to be a little bit more than just changing over those cassette tapes over to DVD? Let’s make a documentary out of it.” And three years later, we went for it, and we put together a 53-minute little “mini-movie” about her life.TOWNSEND: Why was this important for you to get involved in this project that took quite a bit of time?RENO: One word: history. It’s an amazing thing, and I learned a lot of things on this. And one was the influence of the Jewish immigrants that came up to Alaska. And I was surprised to hear how large and how acclimated Nome became with the 20,000+ estimated people that lived there during that time. So it was a really neat experience to understand how it got started, and these people that started out as originally coming up to gold mine then found a niche or a need for all of these little shops and merchants, and they started the first infrastructure for major cities and populations up in Alaska that was more modernized. Just an amazing story, from coming up on the SS Victoria and from dog mushing to Nome from Candle in order to just have her baby to walking all the way from Candle to Nome… Things like that that just… real true stories about Alaskan history.TOWNSEND: Is Candle still there? Is there still a village there?CHURCHILL: It is not an active community, but it is still there. The hospital was probably the best structure made there; it’s still standing. I believe a family still lives in it now. I took my father up there when he was probably about 86 years old, and this is where he was born, and my brother kind of puttered my father around on this four-wheeler. And there was some active mining going on up further from where we were, but it was funny to me because my father kept going down to the beach and looking around going, “This isn’t how I remember it. This isn’t how I remember it.” So I don’t know what’s happened. I do know probably about 1930, there was a major fire that pretty much leveled Candle, so it’s never been quite the same.
Mehdipatnam: The poor condition of the roads at Humayun Nagar in Mehdipatnam has been worst since the past 7 years. The roads are filled with garbage in the corners and are left in improper conditions. There are many smaller gaps in the roads, making it difficult for the motorists to ride on this road. Add to this, there is even garbage that is being dumped on the corner of the roads. The garbage is leading to foul smell and mosquito menace all over the area.
Khaleda ZiaExtending her bail until 8 October, the High Court (HC) on Wednesday directed the counsels of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia to finish within the next three working days the arguments of hearing of an appeal filed by her seeking cancellation of her sentence in the Zia Orphanage Trust case.A bench of justice M Enayetur Rahim and justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order as Khaleda’s lawyers sought time for taking part in the hearing, reports UNB.While passing the order, the court also expressed dissatisfaction as Khaleda’s lawyers have been escaping the appeal hearing and seeking bail extension again and again, said Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) lawyer Khurshid Alam.There is a directive of the Appellate Division to dispose of the case within 31 October.On 8 February, the Dhaka Special Court-5 convicted the former prime minister and BNP chairperson and sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.Since then, Khaleda Zia has been in Old Dhaka Central Jail at Nazimuddin Road.
Listen X 00:00 /03:52 Matthew Prendergast Share Republicans have dominated Congress for the better part of a generation. One of the main reasons is they’ve held most of the power when redrawing congressional boundaries. Republicans have focused on winning and holding state legislatures, and in most states, those legislatures steer redistricting. One-party control often leads to partisan gerrymandering, including in Texas. Matt Angle – director of the Lone Star Project, a Democratic research organization – says you can see that in the statewide vote. “That percentage vote is much higher than the percentage of the districts that Democrats hold, which really throws into relief how grossly gerrymandered the congressional districts in Texas are,” Angle said. Last year, Republican congressional candidates took 51% of the vote statewide, Democrats 49%. Yet Republicans wound up winning 23 of the state’s 36 congressional seats.Democrats finally seem to grasp how important the state contests are. Former Attorney General Eric Holder’s group, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, made a big 2018 push at the state level. “We flipped six state legislative chambers. We broke supermajorities in four chambers. We made really significant gains in seven additional chambers,” Holder told The New York Times’ podcast The Daily.As part of that wave, the Democrats picked up 12 seats in the Texas House of Representatives, bringing them within nine seats of a majority in the chamber. “We know that when we compete on fair maps, Democrats win,” said Jessica Post, executive director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, a national organization aimed at winning state legislative races. “We’ve seen that in states like Pennsylvania and in Florida, where lines have been redrawn and Democrats have finally been able to get a greater share of the congressional delegation that is in keeping with the share of statewide votes that they’re getting. And that’s absolutely not the case in Texas right now.” Post says the DLCC plans to spend a record $50 million nationwide in the current state legislative election cycle. Texas is one of her group’s top 2020 targets.If the Democrats win the Texas House, that will give them an equal voice with the GOP-led Texas Senate when drawing the new district lines. The state’s Republicans can see that as well as the Democrats.“I think taking the Texas House back is going to be Democrats’ number one priority in 2020 in Texas – more so than winning it at the presidential level, more so than defeating Senator John Cornyn, more than any other political goal,” said Matt Mackowiak, a Republican consultant based in Austin.But Republicans won’t just hand over the keys to the State House. Speaker Dennis Bonnen is investing $3 million of his own campaign funds in a political action committee to help reelect Republican state reps. And that’s just part of the effort. The Republican Party of Texas is engaged in the largest voter registration drive in its history.“Since January, we have had thousands of deputy voter registrars trained,” said State Party Chairman James Dickey. “We are getting those deputy voter registrars out at events and out into communities so that we can register many of the 1 million conservative Texans who have never registered to vote.”Republican consultant Matt Mackowiak says it’s an uphill battle for the Democrats, who’ll need to win more than just the nine seats they’re aiming for.“The challenge that you have when you take back seats is that you oftentimes you win in areas that you can’t hold so they’re not going to need to win nine. They’re going to need to win 12 or 13 probably,” Mackowiak said. Texas is expected to pick up as many as three congressional seats in the next census, making a total of 39. With that prize on the line, and with Democrats and Republicans from around the country spending millions in pursuit of it, 2020 could prove to be the most expensive contest for control of the State House in Texas history.MORE: Full Conversation on Houston Matters To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /10:16 X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen
Watch Dogs looks to be one of the first games to pick up on next-gen consoles, but it’s also being released on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U. And while you may have already decided which platform to buy the game for, you now have another choice to make–do you buy the standard or limited edition?Ubisoft has announced that a Limited Edition Pack version of the game will be made available across PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (the Wii U isn’t mentioned). Unlike the standard game, which is expected to cost $60, the Limited Edition will be $130.That’s a high price to pay, especially if you’ve just shelled out for a brand new next-gen console, but in return you get the following items:Watch Dogs game disc in collectible steelbook featuring DedSec artHardcover 80-page book full of concept art for the gameSoundtrack from composer Brian Reitzell9-inch Aiden Pearce statue including gun and glowing smartphoneAiden Pearce vigilante maskThe image of the pack Ubisoft has released suggests the statue is of a very high quality. If that remains the case for the statue that ships in the box, then this is quite a good selection of items, although a $99 price point would have been more realistic.Both the standard and Limited Edition Pack will be available when the game launches on November 19. However, we don’t yet know the launch dates of the PS4 and Xbox One, so the Watch Dogs launch may be delayed or brought forward for those platforms.
Run Chrome Stable, Beta and Dev side-by-side on Windows by Martin Brinkmann on August 22, 2017 in Google Chrome – 9 commentsChrome uses on Windows could not use Chrome Stable and one of the pre-release versions of the browser side-by-side up until now.This changes with today’s announcement as Google lifted the restriction. This means that it is now possible to install and run Chrome Stable and pre-release versions of Chrome on Windows.Google notes that this has been a problem for web developers as they had to decide between running stable Chrome for testing or a pre-release version.Historically it’s been impossible to install these pre-releases on the same computer as stable Chrome, forcing developers to choose between testing their site in the next version of Chrome and experiencing their site as users see it now.Run Chrome Stable, Beta and Dev side-by-side on WindowsChrome users may install and use Chrome Beta and Chrome Dev on the same computer that Chrome Stable is installed on starting today.This adds Windows to the operating systems that support side-by-side installations (Android and Linux support the feature already). Google promises that it will bring the feature to other platforms in the future as well.Chrome Stable users and admins can install Chrome Beta or Dev from the official download site. The page highlights the fact that all Chrome channels may be run in parallel on Windows.Pre-release versions of Chrome need to be removed and re-installed if Chrome Dev or Beta are installed already on a system with Chrome Stable according to Google.Google suggests that users sign in to Chrome to enable sync before removing the development versions to get bookmarks, settings and other data synced after the re-installation of the development version on the system.Canary and Chromium versions were exempt from the restriction in the past.Closing WordsI checked the Chrome installations on a test PC and found Chrome Stable, Development and Canary installed on it. While I cannot say anymore whether it was possible to run the browser’s side by side, installation at least seems to have been possible before.I’m able to run Chrome Stable and Dev side by side however without going through the recommended removal and reinstallation of Chrome.I’m not sure if this has something to do with me using an offline installer for Chrome, or using different profiles for Chrome Dev and Stable.Now You: Do you run Chrome?SummaryArticle NameRun Chrome Stable, Beta and Dev side-by-side on WindowsDescriptionChrome uses on Windows could not use Chrome Stable and one of the pre-release versions of the browser side-by-side up until now.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
Close Last week, NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover has detected high amounts of potentially life-indicating methane from its location inside Gale Crater.The six-wheeled robot reported methane levels around 21 parts per billion units by volume (ppbv). It is far higher than the usual background concentration in the area, which ranges from about 0.24 ppbv to 0.65 ppbv.Is There Life On Mars?The large presence of methane is exciting because, on Earth, the gas is produced by microbes and other organisms. However, methane can also be generated abiotically through geological processes, like the interaction between water and rocks.

If the unusually high levels of methane are confirmed by the rover, the next step is to locate the source of gas and determine what is producing it. On Monday, June 24, NASA released an update. The space agency revealed that the methane detected last week was a transient plume. A similar phenomenon has been observed in the past, but it was the largest amount of methane that the rover has found on Mars since its arrival in 2012. This past weekend, the level of methane went down to 1 part per billion by volume on early Monday morning. This was closer to the background levels in Gale Crater that Curiosity observes all the time. Unfortunately, there is no way to say whether the plume of methane was caused by normal geological processes on Mars or if Curiosity has stumbled upon signs of microbial life on the Red Planet. The rover does not have the right instruments to make that kind of assessment. Mystery Of The Martian Methane PlumeScientists have detected methane on Mars as far back as the 70s with the Viking missions. More recently, Curiosity sniffed out spikes in methane levels (peaking at around 6 or 7 ppbv) in June 2013 and from late 2013 to early 2014. NASA, however, has not seen a pattern of the occurrence of these transient plumes. “The methane mystery continues,” said Ashwin Vasavada, Curiosity project scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “We’re more motivated than ever to keep measuring and put our brains together to figure out how methane behaves in the Martian atmosphere.”The U.S. space agency is set to launch the Mars 2020 rover designed specifically to look for evidence of past habitable conditions and past microbial life on the Red Planet.

Share The 55 and over population is not behaving the way it used to. Whereas the 55+ population in previous generations was retiring (or close to retirement) and moving to senior living communities, the 55+ population of today (the baby boomer generation) are living longer, retiring at later age, and are on the move.Dave Lowman, EVP of Single-Family Business at Freddie Mac, called the 55+ age group “your next business opportunity.” What has grown to be the second-largest generation in history (approximately 67 million, currently) accounts for one-fourth of the population, but holds about two-thirds of the country’s housing wealth. Lowman said the decisions this age group makes “will have a significant impact on the demand for housing and mortgage credit.”“Their numbers and their housing wealth guarantee that the housing decisions of older homeowners will play an outsized role in shaping the housing opportunities available to the generations that follow them—gen X and the massive millennial generation,” said Sean Becketti, Chief Economist with Freddie Mac. “And the influence of the 55+ population will last a long time. Today’s 65-year-old can expect to live until age 84 on average. In contrast, the life expectancy of the Greatest Generation—those born between 1900 and 1924—was 47 years. With a longer life span and ample wealth, many older homeowners may buy and sell several more homes before they’re done.”Population data combined with results from a survey by GfK commissioned by Freddie Mac about the plans of 55+ homeowners revealed three things about that population: a large percentage of them plan to move, millions will be looking for financing options, and 55+ consumers are a financially confident generation.Nearly 25 million of 55+ homeowners expect to move one more time, 9 million of them plan to move in the next four years, and 6.5 million of them plan to buy a house, according to Freddie Mac. The survey also showed that 20 million 55+ homeowners plan to either buy a house or finance age-in-renovations, which creates a significant market opportunity, Lowman said.Many 55+ homeowners are still paying for their home and will be for some time—the survey found that out of 55+ homeowners who are retired, 36 percent of them have a mortgage. Out of those still working, 57 percent have a mortgage. According to Freddie Mac, a majority of those homeowners have 10 years or more left to pay. In addition, this generation has $8 trillion in housing equity and 51 million of them out of the 67 million (slightly more than three-quarters) say they are confident they will be financially comfortable in retirement.“The bottom line: This is a sizable market,” Lowman said. “Even a relatively modest increase in lending to 55+ homeowners could add trillions of dollars in new originations in a relatively short time.” in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News 55+ Homeowners Baby Boomers Freddie Mac 2016-08-11 Seth Welborn August 11, 2016 650 Views Freddie Mac: Opportunity Lies with 55+ Population
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (10) gets off a pass before Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, left, arrives during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) TEMPE, Ariz. — Good things might come to those who wait, but in the NFL, time doesn’t slow down for those who are patient.The Arizona Cardinals know the feeling. They have been waiting for defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche to meet the expectations of being a 29th overall draft pick, and as 2018 has grown old, an approaching contract year for him has made the team anxious to see the third-year pro take steps forward. Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo So far this year, Nkemdiche has compiled 30 tackles with 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble. The Cardinals hope his latest performance can be harnessed starting Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.“Even if you’re not being fully productive, still find ways you can affect the game, in whichever way you can,” Nkemdiche said. “Even if it’s putting the extra bit of fertilizer on this part of the grass because they’re going to be here, so they’re going to trip.“Before anything, it’s a mindset. (Having) certainty … you know what the (expletive) you’re doing and you’re going to do it and this dude’s not going to stop you. You play with that mindset, and then play with intensity and technique and the call within the scheme.”LINEBACKER SHUFFLEThe Cardinals ruled out linebacker Deone Bucannon (chest) for Sunday’s game in Green Bay, setting an already-atrophied position group back even further.MIKE linebacker Josh Bynes, the team’s signal-caller on defense, was put on the injured reserve list on Monday, while fellow starter Haason Reddick is listed as questionable with a neck stinger.Undrafted rookies Zeke Turner and Dennis Gardeck, plus third-year pro Joe Walker are the next players up at linebacker. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 5 Comments Share Injuries on top of inconsistencies played a part in pushing Nkemdiche’s breakout NFL game back.He hardly played as a rookie and last year as a reserve recorded just 11 tackles without a sack. His first big play didn’t come until the home finale in 2017, when he forced a fumble and scored on a 21-yard touchdown during a shutout win over the New York Giants.The Cardinals let veteran tackle Frostee Rucker walk in the offseason, effectively handing Nkemdiche an opportunity to win a starting role.He’s battled foot and calf injuries, missing three games this year. Two weeks off led to better health, enough for his performance in a 45-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.“For lack of a better term, he’s a violent player when he comes off the ball,” defensive coordinator Al Holcomb said. “He’s just so aggressive. When he’s playing fast like he did Sunday, that’s what you get. Now, we need him to be more consistent with his technique as he’s being aggressive coming off the ball.”Keim pointed toward gap integrity and playing the run game “a little more stout” as areas needing improvement for Nkemdiche.“But when you see his get-off, his twitch and his explosiveness … there’s not many guys with that kind of skillset,” the GM said. Veteran Gerald Hodges steps into Bynes’ leadership role. The concern is not limited to whether inexperienced replacements know the schemes. How Hodges communicates with the rest of the defense is a work-in-progress heading into the game against the Packers.“That’s always a concern,” Holcomb said. “Just a different-sounding voice, so the other 10 men in the huddle have to get used to that — the tempo that the call comes out. The guys were joking the other day Gerald speaks a little bit quicker than Josh.” “Robert’s a guy we drafted high, has not lived up to expectation to this date, point blank. That’s not a secret,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Doug & Wolf show Friday.Nkemdiche made a little of that anxiousness go away Sunday in what was without question his best game as a pro. The 6-foot-4, 296-pound lineman made seven tackles with 2.5 sacks and a stuff.To him, the numbers were a reminder to focus on the now. Maybe, it relieved him of the pressures of living up to his draft slot.“It’s good to understand the concept of process … and how to become better at your craft,” he said Friday. “Don’t let other people decide (expectations) for you. Kind of have you own pace of what you’re doing … but always know you’re working at a high rate of speed.Related LinksThe Patrick Peterson saga in Arizona isn’t overWeek 13 injury report: Arizona Cardinals at Green Bay PackersCardinals GM Steve Keim using rest of 2018 to evaluate youthLarry Fitzgerald recounts Cardinals’ OT playoff win vs. Packers, big playsCardinals’ task gets even tougher against Packers’ Aaron RodgersPeterson refutes Sanders’ belief CB wants out of Cardinals“That game was more of a testament for me and just clarity, solidification (to) just keep doing what you’re doing. Keep getting better, pay attention to the little things, be aggressive,” Nkemdiche added. “You go forth from there keep getting better and keep trying to bite the other peoples’ face mask off when you have a chance to do it.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling
Joel Thomas Hynes says CBC series ‘Little Dog’ is about comebacks “Rocky” long ago proved that when it comes to boxing movies, audiences love an underdog.The new made-in-Canada series “Little Dog” will test whether that also holds true for television. The black comedy steps into the ring Thursday on CBC.“Little Dog” is a passion project of Newfoundland-based actor-writer-producer Joel Thomas Hynes. He describes the series as a “raunchy family comedy” about a burnt out, washed-up boxer named Tommy (Little Dog) Ross who left the ring in disgrace five years earlier and now has a shot at a rematch with his old rival.“More than his career is at stake,” says Hynes. “There’s his personal pride and his relationship with his family.”While the rival he’ll face is Rico (Havoc) St. George (played by Dwain Murphy), Tommy’s greatest opponent may be his mother, Sylvia (Irish actress Ger Ryan). She’s a failed lounge singer who will never let her son forget that he’s a loser. Tommy’s brother “Lowly” (Stephen Oates) works hard at making “Little Dog” feel small, too, as does his sister Ginny (Katharine Isabelle). The only family member in Tommy’s corner is Ginny’s bicycle-riding son, Chelsea Ross (Billy Cochrane). To him, uncle Tommy is a hero. In this messed-up family, that’s pretty much right.According to Hynes, who created the series, the character of Tommy was somewhat inspired by a real-life boxer named Andrew Golota. In a heavyweight match with Mike Tyson in 2000, Golota did the unthinkable: he quit the fight, walking out of the ring after the second round. The 32-year-old boxer had been knocked down in the first round and was later diagnosed with a concussion.“There’s extraordinary footage online of the fans smashing drinks off his chest and everything as he’s walking away,” says Hynes. “We just started thinking, ‘Where the hell is that guy now, and do you ever come back from that, if that’s your legacy?’”Adds showrunner and executive producer Sherry White (“Rookie Blue,” “Saving Hope”), “it’s really about do you ever get a second chance?”Hynes was never a professional boxer, but says he has had “my share of fights.” Several of those were of the hockey variety.“I spent seven years on the ice and I spent a lot of time just street fighting,” he says, “so it’s not a foreign thing to me. I eventually moved towards boxing and martial arts because you can’t get away with just fighting anymore.”Before filming began in St. John’s last September, Hynes trained with Newfoundland featherweight Jason Heyward. The boxer put Hynes through ring sessions “just like I had a real fight coming up.”The 41-year-old actor doesn’t only use his hands for boxing. He’s punched out scripts, too, including the seven episodes of this series. He’s also written stage plays and novels, including “We’ll All Be Burnt in Our Beds Some Night,” winner of the 2017 Governor General’s Literary Award for English language fiction.His acting credits include roles on a few other Newfoundland-based projects including “Republic of Doyle,” “Frontier” and “Hatching, Matching and Dispatching.” He’s also appeared on “Mary Kills People,” “Rookie Blue” and “Orphan Black.”This isn’t the first shared project for Hynes and White. They also produced a son, Percy Hynes White. The teenager is also an actor.As Hynes says, “We’ve created great things together.”Hynes and White split up as a couple 10 years ago, but unlike the family in “Little Dog,” they can work together — as parents as well as filmmakers.Percy, in fact, was supposed to have a role in “Little Dog” until he landed an acting job on an American network series: the Marvel Comics’ X-Men drama “The Gifted.”“We were scooped,” says mom White.— Bill Brioux is a freelance TV columnist based in Brampton, Ont. by Bill Brioux, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 27, 2018 11:19 am PDT Last Updated Feb 27, 2018 at 12:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Governor General Julie Payette presents Joel Thomas Hynes with the Governor General’s Literary Award for English fiction, titled “We’ll All Be Burnt in Our Beds Some Night” in Ottawa on Wednesday, November 29, 2017.
