Edwin AW14: No-nonsense Clothing for the Street to the Slopes

first_img Dickies 1922 Collection Offers Some of the Best Menswear Made in America We can hardly believe its time for all our favorite brands to show us what they got for AW 2014- has 2013 been the quickest year yet? Nevertheless, here’s one of the standout collections from Japanese denim brand Edwin.The best way to ‘feel’ the collection is to watch the awesome accompanying film created by Jonny Kight and Benjamin Robinson. The film was shot in the Les Vosges Mountains in North East France where, at times, the temperature dropped to a ball-shrinking -15ºC. A testament to guy time and good, sturdy, no-nonsense clothes, the film features Edwin’s FURTHER crew larking about on 70s trial bikes.For those out of the know, the FURTHER crew are a motley of acquaintances known by the brand that have been gathered and sent on several road trips by now. Essentially, as described by Benjamin Robinson, Edwin’s Art Director and the director of the FURTHER films, the film is ‘a roadtrip where everyone was wearing Edwin’. This has become a tried and tested formula for the brand to establish the hardwearing, grease-stained potential of their clothing- and one that we really love.The pieces within the collection retain that lovable sturdy, pulled-on from off the bedroom floor appeal. As the crew wades through the knee-deep snow it’s encouraging to see the new steely-washed indigo denim being dragged through the icy wet without any wincing. Throughout the collection, the color palette is casual and understated; shades of cognac, leather black and a spectrum of grey-tinged blues feel welcome and utterly wearable. Photographic mountain prints on t-shirts and flannel and Fair Isle jacquard on shirting are classical and intrinsically winter.All in all, Edwin have got us in the mood for a little winter bromance, 70s trial bikes and all.

NAVTOR to Assist with EU Autonomous Vessel Project

first_imgzoom Norway’s mapping services company NAVTOR is to spend the next three years helping the EU chart a route towards autonomous vessels as it was selected to represent the maritime industry in the ENABLE project – conceived to prove, verify and validate the safety of autonomous vehicles in Europe. The company said that it now received funding to investigate the concept of shore-based bridges, a steppingstone on the path to autonomy.ENABLE was originally proposed by the car industry, before the EU widened its scope to take in the full spectrum of transport, including ships.NAVTOR’s role in ENABLE, which runs through to October 2019, will focus on testing the validity of the software element of a remote bridge concept. This will be built upon continuous data sharing between vessels and land, with key navigation functions migrating from the crew to office-based teams.“We believe autonomous vessels will be a reality within the next 10 to 15 years,” NAVTOR e-Navigation Project Manager Bjørn Åge Hjøllo said, adding that the shore-based bridges will be “a vital part of realising that vision.”NAVTOR launched the initiative with a pre-project meeting for 16 European experts, representing some of Europe’s leading research and development institutions, in its hometown Egersund last month. Other ENABLE participants include IBM, Philips Medical Systems, Renault, Tieto and Siemens.last_img read more

River Hebert Renovations Now in Provincial Hands

first_imgThe province will take over the management of renovations at River Hebert District High School starting today, Sept. 12. “The community is eager for this project to move forward and government feels this is the best way to proceed,” said Carole Olsen, deputy minister at the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The renovations will create a Primary to Grade 12 school. River Hebert Elementary students will then move into the improved and expanded school. As part of the project, the province will examine how the concept of a community hub school can be applied to the current design to provide the best educational experience for the children and maximum long-term benefit to the community. Chignecto-Central Regional School Board was notified today it is no longer responsible for the project. The project has faced delays, including an unexpected pause to review a tender that came in more than 45 per cent above the budget estimate of $6 million. Tenders for the second phase of the project are expected to go out in the next few weeks.last_img read more

Techies death HC frowns on illegal hoardings

first_imgChennai: Coming down heavily on the Tamil Nadu government over illegal hoardings, the Madras High Court on Friday wondered how many more lives should be lost as a result of such banners, endangering the lives of people.A day after a 23-year-old woman techie came under the wheels of a water tanker after she fell losing balance when an illegal hoarding crashed on her in a city suburb, the court asked if the government will take a firm stand against such unauthorised banners. “How many more litres of blood the state government needs to paint the roads with,” a Division Bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and N Seshasayee wondered. The court asked whether at least now Chief Minister K Palaniswami will be willing to issue a statement against such unauthorised banners.last_img

Remembering Holocaust victims Ban urges unity to eradicate antiSemitism all forms of

“As we remember what was lost in the past, and as we recognize the perils of the present, we know what we must do – and we know we must do it together,” said Mr. Ban in opening remarks to the UN General Assembly’s annual commemoration of the Day. Joining the Secretary-General at the event this afternoon were, among other speakers, Reuven Rivlin, President of Israel, and Denis Antoine, Vice-President of the General Assembly, as well as Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans. Maher Nasser, the acting UN Under-Secretary-General for Public Information, presided over the event.The International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust is marked every year on 27 January, the date on which Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated in 1945. This year’s observance, on the theme ‘Liberty, Life and the Legacy of the Holocaust Survivors’, coincides with two milestone events: the 70th anniversary of the Second World War’s end and the founding of the UN. Recalling his visit to the Auschwitz Birkenau camp in November 2013, Mr. Ban said: “I saw the full machinery of murder: the railway platform where the infamous selections were made; the barracks that held Jews, Roma, Sinti, non-Jewish Poles, Soviet prisoners of war, dissidents, disabled persons and homosexuals; and finally the ovens where human beings were turned to ashes.” “I was especially moved by the displays of photographs and films of European Jewish life before tyranny took hold – family meals, weddings and other rituals, performances by the singers and actors who enlivened the cities in which they lived. We can still feel the pain of all that was lost and destroyed in a frenzy of cruelty,” the Secretary-General added. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pays a visit to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland (November 2013). UN Photo/Evan Schneider ‹ ›The images of emaciated camp survivors and piles of dead bodies were prominent in the minds of those who gathered to establish the United Nations, Mr. Ban continued. A determination to uphold human dignity was written into the Organization’s founding Charter 70 years ago – and has defined the UN’s work ever since. But there is still a long way to go. The struggle for justice and tolerance faces widespread challenges. “Anti-Semitism remains a violent reality; Jews continue to be killed solely because they are Jews. Extremism and dehumanization are present across the world, exploited through social media and abetted by sensationalist press coverage. The targets are as diverse as humankind itself,” the Secretary-General said. In Europe and elsewhere, Muslims are under attack, the victims of bigotry at the hands of political opportunists and ultra-nationalists. Vulnerable populations everywhere bury their dead and live in fear of further violence. “I take heart from counter-demonstrations, rallies and interfaith dialogue. We must all remain on our guard. We must uphold human rights, democratic freedoms and our responsibility to protect people at risk. And we must respond to terrorism and provocation in ways that resolve – instead of multiply – the problem,” he underscored.In his address, Reuven Rivlin, President of Israel, recalled the “brutal”, “perverted” extermination of Jews during the Holocaust “in the most horrifying crime ever committed in the history of the human race.” The United Nations rose on the ruins of the Second World War, he said, stressing that the International Day was not just a gesture because the pledge ‘Never again’ was “the very essence of the UN,” and the principle and primary reason for its existence. However, since the UN was founded, more nations and communities had been slaughtered. “We must ask ourselves honestly: is our struggle – the struggle of the General Assembly against genocide – effective enough?” he said. “Are we shedding too many tears and taking too little action?”Mr. Rivlin noted that the Convention on Genocide was now 64 years-old but remained a merely “symbolic document” that had not realized its objectives. The international community had a duty to lay down the red lines defining genocide and to make clear that crossing those lines must mean intervention. Humanitarian and moral considerations had to take precedence over economic, political or other interests in the fight against genocide.“Nations cannot be saved and must not be saved as an afterthought or from considerations of cost-benefit,” Mr. Rivlin said. “Unless the moral fire burns within us, the lessons of the Holocaust will never be learned.”The General Assembly must act as a determined and unified international community or else risk leaving the ‘Never again’ oath hollow and defiled.“We must remain silent no longer. We must rise up and take action,” he said.Also in opening remarks, General Assembly Vice-President Denis Antoine also underscored the importance of drawing lessons from the tragedy of the Holocaust and the need to “pass them on to the present and future generations,” particularly as the world continued to conf read more

Mens Hockey No 15 Ohio State looks to fix home woes against

Ohio State junior forward Mason Jobst prepares for a face-off against Robert Morris on Oct. 27. The Buckeyes won 5-3. Credit: Nick Hudak | For the LanternThe No. 15 Ohio State men’s hockey team (8-4-4, 3-4-1-0 in Big Ten) will continue its streak of conference play with a weekend series against No. 7 Minnesota (10-7-1, 4-5-1-1 in Big Ten) on Friday and Saturday. The Golden Gophers enter the series losing three of the past four games, but the losses were against high-ranked opponents in No. 14 Wisconsin and No. 4 Notre Dame. Ohio State is coming off a disappointing series against No. 18 Penn State, in which they lost in shootout after a 5-5 tie, then lost 4-0 the following game.“No one likes to lose, and certainly you don’t like to lose the way we lost on Saturday,” head coach Steve Rohlik said. “We’re playing one of the better hockey teams in the country, and we know we have to be ready, so obviously it’s important for us to get back and have a good effort.”Minnesota gets its scoring from a variety of players. Three Golden Gophers rank top-50 in the NCAA in points. Sophomore forward Rem Pitlick leads the team with eight goals and 19 points, followed closely by junior forward Tommy Novak and freshman forward Casey Mittelstadt with 17 and 15 points, respectively.With the Buckeyes taking a few weeks off after this series, junior defenseman Sasha Larocque understands the importance of playing well against Minnesota.“It’s huge, they’re a top team, both in the Big Ten and nationally, so it’s a good marker for us going into break here,” Larocque said.Minnesota is ranked 30th in goals for and tied for 12th in goals against in the nation. Its impressive lack of allowed goals can be largely credited to junior goalie Eric Schierhorn, who has played in goal every game for the Golden Gophers this season.Last season Ohio State and Minnesota split both series. The four games totaled a combined 39 shots finding the back of the net between both teams.“It’s an easy team to get up for,” Larocque said. “We’ve had … some real tough series against Minnesota, and we know they’re a great program, so we’re excited to play against them.”The Buckeyes look to fix their struggles at home and Rohlik said it’s all about fixing the mentality going forward.“That’s a good question. Certainly if I had (that answer) we’d already have that fixed, but I think it’s just a mindset,” Rohlik said. “On the road we feel a little more loose for whatever reason, and we just have to come out here at home and we have to win hockey games no matter where we’re at.”Puck drop for the series against Minnesota is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday and 8:00 p.m. Saturday at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Type 2 diabetes can be reversed in just four months trial shows

first_imgThe number of people in the UK with type 2 diabetes has trebled over the last two decades, rising from 700,000 in the 1990s to 2.8 million today, according to new figures from Cardiff University. The condition costs the NHS around £14 billion a year, but if the intervention worked at the same level for Britons, then more than one million people could benefit.The condition occurs when an individual does not produce enough insulin, the hormone that allows cells to absorb glucose into the blood, or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly.As a result, blood sugars build up in the body and the cells do not receive the energy they need. Over time type 2 diabetes can lead to damage to the blood vessels, nerves and organs and trigger kidney disease and blindness. It also increases the risk of a heart attack and stroke.The increased number of people with the disease has been linked to rising levels of obesity.  Between 1993 and 2010 the proportion of obese people in the UK went from 13 per cent to 26 per cent for men and from 16 per cent to 26 per cent for women. “However, this is a very controversial hypothesis.  Most researchers think that in order to have diabetes undergo proper ‘remission’ it’s about more substantial weight loss, without use of drugs and to sustain benefits required keeping most of the weight lost off.   I tend to agree with latter notion.”  The research was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.Elsewhere researchers from Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark warned that ibuprofen should not be sold over the counter after finding that it raised the risk of a heart attack by 31 per cent.  Encouraging exercise and cutting calories allowed the pancreas to rest, scientists believe Credit:Getty  Emily Burns, the research communications manager of Diabetes UK said: “We’re looking forward to seeing the results in 2018. In the meantime, we encourage people with Type 2 diabetes to follow a healthy diet that is low in sugar, saturated fats and salt.“We know that diet, exercise and medications can help people with Type 2 diabetes to manage their condition. We’re starting to see mounting evidence that putting Type 2 diabetes into remission is feasible as well.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Encouraging exercise and cutting calories allowed the pancreas to rest, scientists believe  Type 2 diabetes can be reversed in just four months by cutting calories, exercising and keeping glucose under control, a trial has shown.Although the condition is considered to be chronic, requiring a lifetime of medication, Canadian researchers proved it was possible to restore insulin production for 40 per cent of patients.The treatment plan involved creating a personalised exercise regime for each trial participant and reducing their calories by between 500 and 750 a day. The participants also met regularly with a nurse and dietician to track progress and continued to take medication and insulin to manage their blood sugar levels.After just four months, 40 per cent of patients were able to stop taking their medication because their bodies had begun to produce adequate amounts of insulin again.  Naveed Sattar, a professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow, said: “We know now that intensive diet changes – with calorie restriction over period of few weeks to few months can reverse diabetes in many patients but what we need to determine are ways to keep the weight off and keep people in diabetes ‘remission’. “What happens with weight loss per se is that fat is sucked out of key organs relevant to the efficient metabolism of sugar so this means liver, muscles and pancreas lose fat and start to restore their normal functions leading to lower sugar levels.   “The present trial is unusual in that it also uses drugs to help get to low glucose levels in the short term with the hypothesis that getting sugars to normal may also help reduce toxic effects on pancreas and kick starts its function. “This likely gives the pancreas a rest and decreases fat stores in the body, which in turn improves insulin production and effectiveness.” The charity Diabetes UK is currently funding a large trial to find out if a low-calorie diet can put type 2 diabetes into remission in the long term. The researchers at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, said the programme worked because it gave the insulin-producing pancreas ‘a rest.’”The research might shift the paradigm of treating diabetes from simply controlling glucose to an approach where we induce remission and then monitor patients for any signs of relapse,” said the study’s first author, Dr Natalia McInnes, of McMaster.”The idea of reversing the disease is very appealing to individuals with diabetes. It motivates them to make significant lifestyle changes.last_img read more

SME Executive Director David Kanagy awarded MMSA Gold Medal

first_imgThe Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration Inc (SME) has announced that Executive Director David Kanagy was awarded the 2015 MMSA Gold Medal by the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America (MMSA) at their annual dinner on February 16, 2015 in Denver, Colorado.The MMSA Gold Medal is awarded to individuals who have made significant contributions to the mining industry. Since its founding in 1908, MMSA has bestowed only 34 Gold Medal Awards. In presenting the 2015 award to Kanagy, MMSA Past President and Gold Medal Committee Chairman Mark Jorgensen noted that, as the new Executive Director of SME, Kanagy had spoken to MMSA members in 2004 about his vision for the future of SME and the mining industry.“Over the next ten years, Dave was able to accomplish some remarkable things,” stated Jorgensen. “He took ideas that were brought to him by people in this room and shared a vision about how to achieve them.” Jorgensen continued by saying that the Gold Medal Committee has cited David for, “Outstanding leadership that has advanced the global collaboration of technical information, networking and professional development for mining professionals and enhanced public education about mining and minerals.”Jorgensen mentioned the value that SME provides to its members and stakeholders, and noted specifically:• OneMine.org, the largest online digital mining research library in the world• The Government and Public Affairs Committee which provides technical briefing papers to policy makers• Establishment of the SME Congressional Fellowship program• Leadership of the World Federation of Engineering Organisation’s task force on Mining and Sustainability• Collaboration with other organisations to form the Global Mineral Professionals Alliance• Establishment of PhD Fellowship and Academic Career Development Grant programs• Significantly downsized the SME Board of Directors“I accept the MMSA Gold Medal with a sense of humbleness and gratitude to all those whom I have worked with during the past 11 years,” said Kanagy in accepting the award. “Without the success that SME has had in recent years, we couldn’t take on projects of the magnitude as stated by Mark Jorgensen. It is the volunteers and staff working together that has put all of this together; I just provided a little vision and leadership.”Kanagy has more than 30 years experience in the non-profit association industry and has been Executive Director of SME since 2004. During his tenure, SME has tripled revenues and increased global membership to more than 15,000. Through collaboration and cooperation with other organisations, as well as a strong connection to the institutes of higher learning which teach mining and metallurgy, SME continues to evolve to provide greater value for its members worldwide. The 2015 SME Conference drew 7,804 attendees, with 740 international members and 685 students. A total of 906 exhibit booths provided attendees with information and demonstrations of the latest trends and technologies.last_img read more

Violent and aggressive Man who took child with him after he punched

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Friday 28 Apr 2017, 6:15 AM http://jrnl.ie/3362230 A DONEGAL SEX offender who punched his former girlfriend as their six- month-old baby lay beside her on a bed has been jailed for one year.Martin O’Hara (31), who has a previous conviction for rape, “lashed out” at the woman a second time after he left the house with their baby without her agreement following an argument.Yesterday, O’Hara of St Benildus Avenue, Ballyshannon, Co Donegal, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to assaulting the woman causing her harm in Tallaght on 28 July, 2016.Judge Karen O’Connor said it had been “violent and aggressive behaviour” in the presence of a young baby and had no doubt been terrifying for the woman. She noted his remorse and his recent efforts at rehabilitation and counselling.She said the physical effects of the assault had been at the lower end of the scale but noted the woman also suffered psychological effects. Judge O’Connor imposed a 12-month prison term.Garda Stephen Neilan told Fiona Murphy BL, prosecuting, that O’Hara and his former partner had at that time been in a relationship for about 18 months and had a child together.He said they were in Dublin visiting O’Hara’s sister and his partner woke up him that morning to look after the baby as it was his turn. The woman said he was in a bad mood and he asked her to make a phone call. She asked if he could do it so that she could have a rest.She said O’Hara walked over and punched her once as the baby lay beside her.O’Hara went then downstairs and made the baby’s bottle but an argument ensued. The woman told him she would ring the gardaí if he took the baby out. O’Hara left with the baby in a buggy and was followed by his partner and sister.He got his sister in a headlock and punched her as she tried to take the baby back and then struck his partner on the nose as she tried to take the buggy. She fell to the ground dazed.Gardaí were alerted and were initially concerned for the child but O’Hara returned the child without incident after he was spotted walking near Luas tracks. The baby was calm and uninjured.O’Hara was arrested and admitted “lashing out” at the women. Gardaí asked him what he had been planning to do and he replied that he was not sure.Garda Neilan said the pair remained in a relationship for a time but it later broke down.The woman said she had been scared because her child was taken without her consent and she now attends a domestic violence counselling service.Garda Neilan said O’Hara has 15 previous convictions which include less serious assaults, burglary and one conviction for rape.Kitty Perle BL, defending, said things went “off the rails” for O’Hara when he was 15-years-old and his father died. He began abusing drugs and getting into trouble. She said he had severe difficulties with anger in his background.She said the relationship with his former partner had been a “tumultuous” one and there was now no contact between them. She said he wished to offer an apology to the woman.Ms Perle said he had taken steps towards rehabilitation for the first time in his life and had attended counselling. She asked the court to take into account his guilty plea and remorse.She said it was a “despicable offence” but asked Judge O’Connor to be as lenient as possible in the circumstances.Read: Jackie Lavin and Bill Cullen to face off in court over alleged €1m house purchase dealRead: ‘I felt I was running for my life’ – Joan Burton gives evidence in Jobstown trial Apr 28th 2017, 6:15 AM Share Tweet Email By Fiona Ferguson ‘Violent and aggressive’: Man who took child with him after he punched girlfriend jailed for one year Martin O’Hara has 15 previous convictions, including one for rape. 8,332 Views Image: Shutterstock/FabrikaSimf Image: Shutterstock/FabrikaSimf Short URL 15 Comments last_img read more

Inform Bohemians striker appears on Channel 4 show Countdown

first_imgPresenter Nick Hewer asked Corcoran about his footballing experience, quizzing him on why Irish football has adopted summer football, with the perplexed Bohs star unsure of the answer.While his Countdown skills could do with plenty of improvement, the same could not be said of the Dubliner’s on-field performances. Corcoran netted three times during the opening weeks of the campaign, including the winner in the Dublin derby victory over Shamrock Rovers, as Bohs secured three wins and two draws from their first five Premier Division outings. Corcoran netted the winner in the Dublin derby last month. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHOThe 30-year-old, who has been a consistently prolific goalscorer for Keith Long’s side over the last two seasons, claimed the monthly prize ahead of team-mate James Talbot, who finished runner-up, and Ciaron Harkin of Derry City in third. “It’s great to win the award,” Corcoran said. “Personal achievements are always good, but more importantly we’ve had a great start to the season as a team and hopefully we can push on and get more points on the board now.“I’m feeling good and I had the perfect start to the season personally with the three goals. We also kept three clean sheets in those games, which is nice.”Bohs, who sit second and just two points off early pacesetters Rovers after five rounds of action, travel to Turner’s Cross to face Cork City on Friday night.“We lost three or four big players last season, but I think Keith must be used to it at this stage as it has been happening regularly over the last few years due to other teams having more money,” Corcoran added. https://the42.ie/4534825 Mar 11th 2019, 1:32 PM Subscribe Short URL 17 Comments In-form Bohemians striker appears on Channel 4 show ‘Countdown’ It’s been a memorable day for Dinny Corcoran, who was named Player of the Month earlier.

Obésité du vin rouge contre la prise de poids féminine

first_imgObésité : du vin rouge contre la prise de poids féminine ?États-Unis – Une étude réalisée par les chercheurs du Brigham and Women’s Hospital de Boston montre que la consommation de vin rouge réduit la prise de poids chez les femmes de plus de 40 ans.Ces chercheurs ont tenté d’établir un lien entre l’absence de consommation d’alcool et la prise de poids chez les femmes. Ils ont pour cela suivi 19.000 Américaines n’ayant pas de problèmes de poids, âgées de 39 ans et plus.Les résultats montrent qu’après 13 ans, les femmes qui ont pris le moins de poids sont celles qui buvaient l’équivalent de deux verres d’alcool par jour. Parmi les différentes boissons à base d’alcool comme le vin blanc, la bière ou les spiritueux, le vin rouge s’est révélé être la boisson la plus efficace pour maintenir son poids.Il est néanmoins important de rappeler que l’alcool est à consommer avec modération. Il contient du sucre et un nombre important de calories qui participent à l’augmentation de la prise de poids et de la glycémie, c’est pourquoi une consommation raisonnable est encore davantage conseillée aux personnes souffrant de diabète.Le 9 mars 2010 à 12:51 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Lego Not all of us can afford a genuine, 789-horsepower McLaren Senna — and after all, each of the 500 copies has already been sold. But for just one 50,000th of the price, you can get a 5-inch-long recreation in the form of the new Lego Speed Champions Senna set.Where the genuine McLaren Senna requires about 300 hours of labor to assemble by hand, the Lego version apparently takes a lot less time, with the set consisting of just 219 pieces. The Senna’s shape has been faithfully recreated, with details like its roof snorkel, massive rear wing and striking, aerodynamically optimized nose all produced in plastic bricks. The paint scheme is a menacing Victory Grey with orange accents.

Sadly, unlike the genuine article, the Lego model does not include a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, so it’s unlikely that the model car will be able to rocket to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds.McLaren has previously teamed up with Lego to offer Speed Champions versions of the P1 and 720s, both of which the carmaker says sold out quickly. The Senna set is on sale now for $15. Disclaimer: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the services featured on this page McLaren Legolast_img read more

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen showed up

first_imgArizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen showed up to conditioning workouts — first.He’s a few weeks into installs of Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, picking it up quickly, the first-year head coach said Tuesday. By all accounts, the assumption that Arizona will draft quarterback Kyler Murray first in the NFL Draft and trade Rosen haven’t affected the second-year pro’s attitude or focus.But in a pre-camp trip to the Grand Canyon where Sports Illustrated TV tagged along with Rosen and his friends, the quarterback did admit the trade rumors about his uncertain future are a tad annoying, if nothing else. Top Stories “I think when people talk about, like, you can’t listen to criticism or you can’t read articles, you have to be aware of what’s going on to a certain extent,” the quarterback said. “I definitely understand the situation. It’s annoying but it is what it is — football’s a business. I definitely respect the higher-ups and their decisions.“I think the best advice I’ve gotten in life from so many different people is control what you can control. Whatever decision is made, it’s my duty to prove them right if they keep me and prove them wrong if they ship me off.”Related LinksCarson Palmer believes Josh Rosen is not in dark, but Cards should be vagueCardinals QB1: The Franchise Focus with Kurt Warner and Carson PalmerAs Rosen-Murray rumors swirl, winds are calm at Cardinals workoutsESPN’s Barnwell proposes 3 potential Josh Rosen NFL Draft tradesThe 5: Most intriguing matchups on schedule for Cardinals in 2019What we can believe: Cardinals GM Keim keeping NFL Draft options openRosen was viewed as the face of the franchise just three games into last season.As Arizona tumbled to a 3-13 record by the end of the year, his 2,278 yards, completion percentage of 55% and touchdown-to-interception ratio of 11-to-14 sank some belief in his future, even if he was playing without talent around him or stability under two offensive coordinators.Still, the Cardinals showed a commitment to Rosen in their actions following the season.They fired head coach Steve Wilks after his first year on the job and hired Kingsbury in January. At that point, it was unlikely either the Cardinals or Kingsbury believed that anyone but Rosen would be their starting quarterback to begin 2019. 12 Comments   Share   As it stands, both parties are going about their usual business.In front of Sports Illustrated cameras, Rosen did make one thing clear: He wants to play and he wants to win, wherever he ends up.“I think this (past) season went as poorly as it could possibly go, but within that, I had an unbelievable time,” the quarterback said.“We won three games and each one of those wins, to me it felt like we won the Super Bowl. That feeling is so intoxicating, and that’s why I just want nothing more to be part of a team next year and have the same opportunities to go out and compete.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Things changed when Murray decided to leave Oklahoma, not for a pro baseball career, but for an NFL future.Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and Kingsbury haven’t pushed back against the idea they could draft a quarterback with their No. 1 pick. At the NFL Draft Combine, Keim infamously dropped a key qualifier when answering whether Rosen was the team’s quarterback.“Yeah, he is right now, for sure,” Keim said.During Keim’s last time in front of microphones before the NFL Draft, he made it clear that he never said whether Arizona would be open to drafting a quarterback — he also made it clear he never said they wouldn’t be.The GM did make sure to compliment Rosen handling the situation in stride.“We’ve had good dialog. He is a pro’s pro, and the one thing that I’ve appreciated about him the most since we’ve drafted him, the kid has an unbelievable amount of mental toughness,” Keim said on Tuesday. “Physical toughness, mental toughness, Josh Rosen has it all.”Rosen hasn’t been made available to the media since Cardinals conditioning workouts began last week. Whether you believe that Keim’s gushing was more about Rosen’s trade value or not, it seems from afar that team and player are in a good place.
