Raiders address penalty problem for playoff push

first_imgALAMEDA — Jon Gruden brings back Raiders legends as often as possible to remind his team of the the rich tradition of the franchise.One tradition the Gruden would like to do away with is penalties. The Raiders have led the NFL 18 times since 1963 (the most in NFL history) and are currently No. 2 in the NFL in both penalties (88) and penalty yards (779). Only Arizona (94) has more penalties and Cleveland (822) more penalty yards.“It’s been addressed,” Gruden said Friday before the Raiders …last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast December 13, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I think we get away with another 2 days with no precipitation over Ohio. Today definitely. We may be dealing with a bit of leftover precipitation in NE Ohio this morning, but generally, the state looks pretty good. Some clouds were around yesterday, and we wont rule out some today, but nothing significant. Tonight and tomorrow we see rains starting to work into Indiana, but they seem to die as they move east. WE wont rule out a bit of moisture in western or NW Ohio, but think your Friday looks mostly dry too, at least over a majority of the state. That will change tomorrow night. Thick clouds and well organized precipitation pushes into SW Ohio tomorrow night, and then continues to spread across the state through the overnight, through Friday and finally leaves early Sunday morning. This moisture is fairly consistent through that entire period, but generally stays over the southern half of the state. We look for precipitation through the period to run from half to 1.5″ with 80% coverage south of I-70. North of there little to no rain, with a dry outlook completely north of US 30. This rain action will be streaming west to east hitting the same areas over and over…which is leading to our higher rain totals. Everything should be done by mid morning Sunday.  The map at right shows rain totals through Sunday morning. We turn dry in all areas from Sunday afternoon through next Wednesday. High pressure will be in control, with 2 high pressure centers sliding across the state in that period. Temps will not fall off that much, and we should stay near normal through midweek next week. Moisture is back for the second half of next week, as scattered showers arrive Thursday, likely around midday or early afternoon. At this time we are expecting .1”-.5” rain potential with coverage at 80% of the state. This system may skew a slight focus on the northern half of the state, but honestly it’s a bit early to finesse the forecast that much. We will watch it. The low tracks across NW Indiana, which puts all of Ohio in the warm (south flow) sector, keeping all precipitation rain. Action should be done by next Friday morning. Dry but turning colder behind that system next Friday, which can lead to a chance of very light snow next Saturday, the 22nd. This will not be enough snow to really talk much about a white Christmas yet. The extended period is relatively dry, especially through Christmas. Models are split on temps, but we think a move to colder air for the week of Christmas is likely, cold enough to support snow, if any moisture were to materialize. Right now, we are going to keep a dry pattern through most of the 11-16 day forecast window, with our only system in that period coming for Friday the 28th. A south flow ahead of the strong low would bring warm air in, enough to at least have the moisture start as rain, and we could see .25”-.75” of precipitation out of that event.last_img read more

Who Needs The 64-Bit Chip In The iPhone 5S? You Do

first_imgApple yesterday introduced the A7 chip, the 64-bit chip at the heart of the new iPhone 5S that provides impressive graphics capabilities and processing power. The mobile game Infinity Blade III launched with the 5S, and during its presentation Apple used the game to show off the new iPhone’s powerful graphics chops.But the A7 isn’t just for gamers. It powers a whole bunch of features that you, the ordinary user, are likely to care about. A lot.In a nutshell, the 64-bit chip provides better speed, faster applications, more processing power, and better graphics. That means you can download videos and update your social media feeds faster. Apple’s highly anticipated camera upgrade and fingerprint-based smartphone security both also require significant processing power. The camera application includes auto image stabilization and a feature that takes multiple photos with each button press, then discards all but the best one. An improved flash can adjust both color and intensity for different lighting situations, supposedly significantly decreasing overexposure, and a camera sensor that’s 15 percent larger than its predecessor in the iPhone 5. Touch ID, Apple’s new security function that scans your fingerprint to unlock your phone and pay for purchases on iTunes, is located on the sapphire glass crystal home button.None of those features are easy to pull off. All benefit from the extra horsepower provided by the A7.iOS 7 has been completely reengineered for the 64-bit processor, Apple says. iPhone 5S will be backwards compatible with existing older 32-bit applications, but Apple said developers should be able to upgrade their apps to 64 bit easily.

Wine From a Bottle is So Last Year

first_img Ditch the Bottle Opener Because Canned Wines are Having More than Just a Moment America’s Oldest City Has a Super-Modern Dining and Drinking Scene When you think of buying an alcoholic beverage on tap, most likely your mind goes to craft beer. But it’s becoming quite the thing for bars and restaurants to add kegs of wine to their offerings and fill customer’s wine glasses from a tap. This results in a lower price because of the lack of bottling  (Can we get an Amen?). It’s great for the environment because there’s no packaging waste (glass, corks, labels, cardboard and foil), plus the kegs are reusable. Below you will find three such establishments where wine on tap is all the rage.Sante Wine Bar, Asheville, North CarolinaLocated in the historic Grove Arcade in the downtown area, Sante Wine Bar became the first in the state in 2012 to offer wine on tap. The current selection of 12 different varieties poured from kegs includes the following—Estate Acrobat Pinot Gris ’10 – Oregon; Gotham Project ‘Anassa’ Moscofilero – Greece; Tangent Albarino ’11 – Spain; Charles & Charlest Rose ’11 – Columbia Valley, WA to name a few.The Chop Bar, Oakland, CaliforniaThis restaurant has a variety of wines stored in stainless steel kegs that they serve by glass or carafe to their customers. The wines complement their diverse menu, which includes charcuterie, artisan cheeses, and such entrees as pork confit, oxtail poutine and rainbow trout.Vera Restaurant, Chicago, IllinoisRecently named by Chicago Magazine as one of the city’s top wine bars, Vera has some varieties on tap to complement the Spanish tapas plates. Operated by Elizabeth and Mark Mendez, the wine selection features seasonally rotating choices from Spain, Europe and the Americas.

Over $1 Billion Spent on Potable Water Project in Portmore

first_imgOver $1 billion has been spent to improve the delivery of potable water to several communities in south eastern St. Catherine and its environs, says Minister of State in the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Colin Fagan.The improvements, which were completed in May 2013, fall under the Portmore Pipeline Project implemented by the National Water Commission (NWC).Mr. Fagan, who provided details during his recent Sectoral presentation in the House of Representatives, said the project involved the construction of 10 kilometres of 30-inch transmission main from the Rio Cobre pipeline in Caymanas, across Mandela Highway, along Municipal Boulevard, and to the existing Marley Hill Reservoir at Braeton.It also included reinforcement of the distribution network in Passage Fort Drive, Germaine Road, Port Henderson Drive, and Portmore Parkway.“While the inconsistent water supply has not been fully resolved, it has certainly improved. The residents in areas of Cumberland, Edgewater, Independence City, Passage Fort and Waterford, to name a few, are already experiencing the benefits of this work which was completed…two months ahead of schedule,” he said.Mr. Fagan informed that phase two of the water supply improvement exercise is underway and will see the replacement of the transmission line from Flat Bridge to Mandela Highway.“This will then be interconnected with the transmission line that was recently completed. This phase is expected to take 18 months, after which, the residents of Portmore will have consistent and reliable high-pressured quality water,” he said.Contact: Chris Pattersonlast_img read more
