Shepherdess of the Glaciers takes the Grand Prize at the Banff Mountain

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Facebook “Half way around the world – the filmmakers’ ability to make an intimate and isolated existence “universal” is what makes this film at once moving and engaging,” said Elizabeth Yake, a member of the 2016 Banff Mountain Film Festival jury. “This expansive film absorbs the viewer into the conjoined, meditative world of a harsh environment – which includes the passing seasons, a barren mountainous landscape and the intimate relationship between humans and animals in their care. She added: “Capturing a moment in time – quietly observing a spirited individual eking out a basic existence with all of life’s necessities -the filmmaker uncovers a life that is organic  – filled with struggles- but ultimately a life abundant with awe and joy.”Category winners for the 2016 Banff Mountain Film Competition include:Grand Prize – Sponsored by MECShepherdess of the Glaciers(France, 2016, 74 min)Director/Producer: Christiane Mordelet, Stanzin DorjaiProduction Company: Les Films de la DecouverteCreative Excellence Award- Sponsored by Mountain Life MediaThe Accord(Iceland/USA, 2016, 19 min)Director: R.C.

Ohio State field hockey come back against Kent State to end losing

Then-sophomore midfielder Mona Frommhold (8) plays the ball during a game against Penn State Oct. 19, 2012, at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU lost, 3-0.Credit: Courtesy of FacebookThe Ohio State field hockey team suffered four consecutive losses, but ended its slump with a 4-3 win over Kent State.OSU claimed its first win since Sept. 6 when it took on the Golden Flashes at Murphy-Mellis Field Tuesday afternoon in Kent, Ohio a game in which both teams were able to score twice in the first half. Freshman forward Brooke Hiltz stood out for the Buckeyes, netting two goals, once in each half and adding an assist.The Golden Flashes got on the board early in the game, when junior midfielder Hannah Faulkner scored seven minutes in. The Buckeyes answered quickly, though, as Hiltz scored the first goal of her career less than two minutes later. Sophomore forward Peanut Johnson put the OSU in the lead with another first half goal, before Kent State was able to tie the game up heading into the break.The Golden Flashes came out of halftime quickly, taking a 3-2 lead just 27 seconds after the intermission.The Buckeyes completed the comeback with another goal from Hiltz coupled with one from senior midfielder Mona Frommhold in the 52nd and 54th minutes respectively.Coach Anne Wilkinson said the offense stepped up and was able to control themselves through the ups and downs of the game.“Our focus was mainly on our offense this game,” Wilkinson said. “I am pleased with the win … it was nice to see us finishing.”Wilkinson said it is never easy winning on another team’s turf, let alone an in-state team that targets OSU. She added it is nice to be going into a Big Ten game coming off a win.“It was a great game for both teams,” Wilkinson said. “It was a high pace game and it was nice to see a lot of people step up in different areas.”Frommhold said it was a tough match, going down two times, but the team pushed one another to finish the game.“We played really (well) together,” Frommhold said. “We supported each other and motivated each other through the whole game.”OSU is scheduled to take on Michigan State Saturday in East Lansing, Mich., at 1 p.m. This is the first Big Ten opponent the Buckeyes will face this season. They are scheduled to return to Buckeye Varsity Field Tuesday to take on No. 25 Louisville. read more

FLSmidth maintenance approach reduces unplanned stoppages at Jwaneng

first_img“We therefore encourage customers to conduct independent assessments of the total lifetime cost of ownership. In execution models where capital expenditure is minimised, as soon as the project elements have been constructed and commissioned the plant designers leave the site, leaving it up to the owner and a group of suppliers to navigate the operational issues for the life of the mine. “FLSmidth is a premium supplier, but the benefits of total lifecycle support far surpass the initial investment,” Roodt continues. “Based on the lifetime cost concept, less than 15% of the lifetime cost of owning and operating a piece of process equipment is the capital cost. The balance is all operating costs so there are many factors that should be taken into account when a company looks at purchasing equipment. Further customer support will come out of FLSmidth’s brand new Supercenter in Delmas, Mpumalanga. This is the first FLSmidth Supercenter on the African continent and the seventh of its kind worldwide. Essentially an extensive aftermarket hub, the new facility houses a concentrated stockholding and is poised to become the South African construction base service and repair facility for all FLSmidth activities. “The project environment in this market is structured in a way that customers who are executing project models to construct new plants generally don’t incentivise optimised lifetime costs. Instead they incentivise lowest capital expenditure at project stage, which ultimately leads to procuring lower quality equipment at higher operating costs. In the six months since implementing a maintenance contract at Debswana’s Jwaneng diamond mine in Botswana, FLSmidth states that it has reduced unplanned outages by more than 5%. Jwaneng is a longstanding FLSmidth customer and has purchased a range of materials handling equipment from the company. “We’ve deployed a significant number of technicians on site to support and maintain the equipment we’ve supplied to Jwaneng, only six of whom are expats,” Buks Roodt, Director responsible for customer services at FLSmidth, said. “The scope of the maintenance contract includes mechanical maintenance of 102 conveyors including all chutes and belt magnets, as well as maintenance management, spares and maintenance planning using the customer’s SAP system, standby and breakdown support and cleaning services. Having designed and manufactured this equipment puts us in an ideal position to add real value to the mine’s operation and maintenance.”He adds: “Every additional percent of plant availability means direct revenue to the customer and we’ve demonstrated that the new maintenance contract is already benefitting the Jwaneng mine. We’re very proud of these early gains and are committed to sustaining them. This achievement underpins our role as a ‘one source’ company, whose support and service extends to the complete lifecycle of a project — this is what differentiates FLSmidth from many other companies in the mineral processing field.” Roodt adds that a great deal of value is added to the customer’s operation through focused OEM services. In addition to its Operation and Maintenance offering, the company’s Parts Availability Guarantee program includes stocking of fast moving and strategic parts, stock location optimisation, simplified order processing, 24/7 ordering and troubleshooting, as well as service and training programmes.center_img “What we’re saying is that ideally, FLSmidth would like to help design the plant because we can offer customers a bundle of processing equipment across the system, which gives us critical mass on sites anywhere in the world. This makes it easy for us to dedicate services to support the operation in the long term. However, even if a customer buys only one piece of equipment from us we’ll also support this equipment for the life of the mine. Ultimately we’re here to provide our customers with service from conceptualisation of a project and throughout the life of the mine.” MozambiqueAs part of this service, FLSmidth has established various regional service centres, the latest of which has just been set up in Tete, Mozambique, employing skilled and competent technical service staff. The decision to set up an office in this region is part of a strategic plan to service the company’s growing installed base across all the major coal projects in the area. FLSmidth’s Service Visits programme covers service audits, troubleshooting, on-site repairs, parts installation, service supervision and on-site training, while its Rebuild, Upgrade and Replacement programme includes complete rebuilds, repairs, retrofits and calibration, laboratory sampling services, and assistance with process optimisation.last_img read more

Sirius unveils first of its TBMs for 23 mile polyhalite transport tunnel

first_imgSirius Minerals has unveiled the first of its 1,800 t tunnel boring machines (TBM) that will construct the company’s underground mineral transportation tunnel between Whitby and Teesside. The 225 m long machine is undergoing final checks in Germany before being shipped to Teesside in the coming weeks, where it will be reassembled and start tunnelling in the second quarter of the year. Primary schools across Redcar and Cleveland have been given the opportunity to enter a competition to name the first machine.The single-shield TBM will be operated by leading construction firm Strabag, who also worked on the 35 mile Gotthard Base Tunnel under the Alps. Initial excavations have already begun to prepare for the machine’s arrival. The machine will bore the first of three planned tunnel drives which will make up the 23 mile tunnel from a new underground mine, near Whitby, to a processing facility on Wilton International in Redcar. Two other machines are planned to be launched in 2020 from Whitby and Lockwood Beck, near Guisborough, to complete the final 15 miles of the 6 m diameter tunnel. Workers will operate the TBM 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, lining the tunnel with concrete segments as it goes.When complete, the tunnel will transport up to 20 Mt a year of polyhalite ore on a conveyor belt from the mine, to a purpose-built processing and shipping facility in the shadows of the old Redcar Steelworks, for distribution around the world. A tunnel was chosen as the transport solution to avoid impacting the local landscape and will have no impact on the ground above, sitting at an average of 250 m below ground level.Chris Fraser, Managing Director and CEO of Sirius said: “The assembly of our first tunnel boring machine represents an exciting milestone for the company and the region. With around 1,000 people currently employed across all of our sites, the team working to make this project a success continues to grow as we deliver this world class project. We expect to create hundreds more skilled construction roles in the coming months to help build our mineshafts, tunnel and mineral handling facility.”Sirius expect to reach the polyhalite seam in 2021 and to be producing 10 Mt of fertiliser per annum by 2024, bringing about around 1,000 new long-term operational jobs.last_img read more

NASA spots meteors crashing into Saturns rings for first time

first_imgA NASA PROBE has for the first time found direct evidence of meteors crashing into the rings of Saturn.Up until now, the only places where meteor impacts had been observed as they happened were Earth, the moon and Jupiter.Some of the meteoroids spotted by NASA’s Cassini probe were tiny, measuring just half an inch across, while others were several metres in size. NASA researchers say that being able to study these meteor crashes will help scientists understand how different plant systems in the solar system formed.NASA said it took scientists years to make out the marks and tracks which were left by nine meteoroids between 2005 and 2012.“We knew these little impacts were constantly occurring, but we didn’t know how big or how frequent they might be,” said Matt Tiscareno, the lead author of the paper on the meteors which was published in Science.An equinox in the summer of 2009 made it easier for researchers to see the debris left by meteoroid impacts.“The sunlight shining… on to the rings at the Saturnian equinox acted like an anti-cloaking device, so these usually invisible features became plain to see,” said Tiscareno.Tiscareno and the team of researchers believe that meteoroids probably break up into smaller pieces once they crash into the rings, and then enter into orbit around Saturn.Read: Earth isn’t so special anymore, apparently > Read: Radical science guide to Dublin wins €10,000 prize > Read: Education Minister: Do we really need 150 minutes of religion class per week? >last_img read more

Coal Burning Out As Way To Make Electricity In Texas

first_img Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Dave FehlingTexas power plants that burn coal produce 13 million tons of coal ash a yearBurning coal to make electricity continues to plummet in Texas. A decade ago, coal was the fuel source for 50 percent of the power generation in the state. It’s now fallen to around 20 percent. Two decades from now, it’s projected coal will generate maybe six percent of the state’s power.So what’s replacing it?“We’re continuing to see growth in natural gas and we’re also seeing significant growth in solar and wind. Coal… no,” said Robbie Searcy, spokesperson for ERCOT, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, the nonprofit company that manages the state’s electricity market. Searcy said during one windy period this past March, more electricity was being produced in Texas by wind turbines than by coal-burning power plants.Environmentalist said market forces are merging with their goals to make the Texas electricity grid cleaner and greener.“Renewables, especially wind and solar, will constitute as much as 90 percent of what we’re adding to the grid. And the remainder of course is natural gas,” said John Hall, Texas Clean Energy Director with the Environmental Defense Fund.Hall is talking about recent studies that predict that in just the next five years, more than half of the 18 coal-burning power plants in Texas will have shut down.Federal data shows no state has more new natural gas power plants slated to be constructed in the next couple of years than Texas. A good number of the projects are located in East and South Texas near natural gas wells. Those wells are producing so much natural gas that a couple of Houston-based companies are building pipelines to send some of it into Mexico to fuel their power plants.Natural gas burns cleaner than coal and when combined with non-polluting solar and wind, environmentalists say it’ll mean Texas should have little trouble meeting new federal guidelines for clean air.ERCOT contends the federal government’s Clean Power Plan could raise electricity prices.  Listen 00:00 /01:34last_img read more

The Gifted Season 2 Episode 11 Recap The Past Finally Starts to

first_imgStay on target ‘The Gifted’ S2 Finale Recap: Death, Destruction & Hope for Season 3’The Gifted’ Season 2, Ep 5 Recap: The Reunion We’ve Waited For We’re in the second week of the winter season, but last night’s episode of The Gifted felt much more like a premiere than last week’s return from the show’s short hiatus. That episode focused all its different characters around one goal: Thunderbird. The Purifiers had him, the Underground wanted him back, Lorna and Andy temporarily rejoined their old allies to make that happened. It wasn’t a bombastic return for the show, but it was a fairly strong episode on its own. This week provided pretty much everything we want when a show comes back from a break. It started to make good on everything the first half of the season set up, while sending the plot speeding towards its eventual conclusion.It’s also a rare episode where the opening flashback has an impact on the story. Usually, these just set the tone of the episode, or at most let us know what themes the episode will be dealing with. This time, we get a brief look back at Andreas von Strucker picking up his music box from an antiques dealer. He’s had it restored, and had a secret addition put in. One only he knows about, after he kills the dealer with a flaming sword. Really going for it with the biblical imagery here, aren’t we? In the present, Lauren has been studying her great grandparents and listening to that music box nonstop. At the same time, her powers have transformed from a bubble shield into a spinning circular blade that fires around the room when she has a bad dream. Safe!Amy Acker (Photo Credit: Annette Brown/FOX.)Lauren’s parents aren’t the only ones concerned with her sleep-blading. Their landlord’s been getting some noise complaints from the neighbors, and he’s starting to suspect there’s more going on than a few seizures. He also seems real keen to evict any mutants in his building. That mutant panic underscores every scene of this episode. As a result, every scene feels precarious. Like we’re just one wayward glance away from everything falling apart. The episode is fun to watch even when there aren’t any shiny special effects on screen. The landlord’s mutant panic comes back to bite him when the cops show up at the Strucker’s apartment (and no one else’s.) They have their guns drawn as soon as Reed opens the door, but Lauren hasn’t been studying and training for nothing. She hides in the back room, and breaks some things across the street. With the cops thrown off the trail, Lauren confronts the landlord herself. She slices his desk and TV in half as a warning that he should never try to rat them out again. I think he’s going to listen.By the way, I love Caitlin Strucker’s turn this season from constantly worried mom into freedom fighter and co-conspirator. Reed’s trying to keep some semblance of the American nuclear family together, and Caitlin’s done pretending that was ever what their lives were. Amy Acker’s really killing it with the material too. With more emotions to play than straight worry, she’s become one of the more enjoyable actors to watch on this show.Emma Dumont and Sean Teale (Photo Credit: Wilford Harewood/FOX.)Racist humans aren’t the only ones with mutant-based fears in this episode, either. Reeva brought in some new recruits, whom Polaris immediately recognizes. They’re especially violent criminals. Hitmen who destroyed a cruise ship full of families. That’s not what Polaris signed up for. And it’s enough to send her back to Eclipse. Maybe this new world Reeva promised won’t be as safe for her baby as claimed. Who would’a thunk? Honestly, this development works really well here. Lorna playing double agent makes her scenes feel so much more dangerous. The Inner Circle scenes are more engaging and tense automatically. And yes, I love that it brings Eclipse and Polaris back together. I’ll admit I’m a total sap, and after everything we’ve seen them go through this season, the kiss with the aurora borealis encircling them was a satisfying, beautiful moment.The only part of this story that didn’t work for me was the detour to the DC underground to visit the Morlocks. As much as I loved their introduction earlier this season, the show has done less and less with them in each subsequent appearance. We get one scene that does little more than remind us that they’re still here, and will probably be involved in the fight against the inner circle somehow. Then it’s back to our regularly scheduled threat of genocide. Disappointing as this is, at least it’s better than that Blink cheating drama we got the last time the Morlocks showed up. God, that was stupid.Sean Teale and Jamie Chung (Photo Credit: Annette Brown/FOX.)Elsewhere in the story, we might be seeing the beginnings of a change of heart for Jace Turner. Well, maybe that’s too optimistic. He’s at least more conflicted than we’ve seen him in the past. For all his hemming and hawing over whether or not to join a militant hate group, he sure dedicated himself to the cause quick. On that note, as ham-handed as having a kid call him out on it was, it’s about time someone said something like that to him. “My granddaddy didn’t need a reason to run from the Klan, and neither did yours.” Damn, kid. You can tell that hurt too. Turner’s “no problem with mutants as long as they’re following the law” line sounds especially hollow after that. So Turner’s conflicted, but he’s not ready to leave the Purifiers just yet. When his buddy shoots a kid, Turner repeats the story of the kid charging him to the investigator. Even though he knows the story doesn’t add up. Because racists stick together, and cops stick together and racist cops especially stick together. At the very least he feels bad about it. Bad enough that he doesn’t even take comfort in the fact that his wife’s talking to him again. He forced his way into a homeless youth shelter, and an innocent kid is dead. He knows he messed up.So much of this episode worked, I almost wonder why this wasn’t the midseason premiere. It got the ball rolling on the rest of the season’s storylines so effectively. As someone who was definitely growing skeptical of this series over the last few episodes, this one got me back in all the way. The alliances established at the season’s outset have been upended once again, and I’m excited to see where this all goes. Even the ending cliffhanger left us on a decent mystery. Polaris and Eclipse discover that Reeva and the anti-mutant Sean Hannity-type are sharing information. Do they have a common goal? Or is the unrest both of their actions sow mutually beneficial? If Lorna wasn’t back on board with the Mutant Underground already, she is now. And thankfully, so am I.The Gifted airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.Previously on The Gifted:The Gifted Season 2, Episode 10 RecapThe Gifted Season 2, Episode 9 RecapThe Gifted Season 2, Episode 8 Recaplast_img read more

While Category III codes generally are not initially reimbursed, they often become payable when they are used routinely in clinical practice.Research has shown that strain imaging can improve diagnostic assessment, standardize interpretation and assist in improving the monitoring of patients over time to optimize care. Additionally, measurements derived from strain imaging have been shown to be more sensitive and less variable than gold standard measurements like EF, making it increasingly important.American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) chamber quantification guidelines now recommend strain imaging when assessing function. ASE recommendations for assessment and monitoring with echo of cardio-oncology patients indicate strain imaging should be monitored in this patient population.The ACVI/ASE/Industry Task Force to Standardize Deformation Imaging issued definitions to improve standardization of 2-D speckle tracking measurements.Increasingly, studies show that assessing and monitoring strain may improve quality of patient care and reduce costs with patient readmissions.Although strain imaging has proven to be valuable in the assessment and management of patients with echo, until now, diagnostic software solutions with strain imaging have been research-oriented, laborious and workflow-inefficient in clinical practice.EchoInsight is among the companies pushing for increased usage of strain imaging to improve diagnostic confidence, standardization and efficiency. Epsilon Imaging’s proprietary speckle tracking technology, TissueTrack, provides robust strain imaging with automation of cardiac functional measurements. It provides clinical strain imaging for improved confidence in assessment and monitoring of wall mechanics for the entire heart. It is available as a stand-alone workstation or client-server architecture using a vendor neutral platform.For more information: www.epsilon-imaging.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 11, 2019 360 Degree View of a Smartphone Performing a Cardiac Ultrasound Exam This 360 degree photo shows a basic, point-of-care cardiac echocardiogram being performed using a smartphone turned i read more The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies.

6 camouflaged Costa Rican creatures you probably havent seen

first_imgThe jungle can be a scary place, and even for some of the fiercest of Costa Rica’s creatures, sometimes the best defense is just to hide. Fortunately, these six animals have figured out a way to hide out in plain sight. Potoos will stretch out their necks and freeze when predators are near so that they blend into the stump they are perched on. (Courtesy of Flickr Creative Commons)1) The PotooNorthern potoo (Nyctibius jamaicensis), common potoo (Nyctibius griseus), great potoo (Nyctibius grandis)A dead, bare tree stump might not seem like the best place to seek out wildlife, but if you are trying to spot one of Costa Rica’s three species of potoos, that’s exactly where you should look. As nocturnal insectivores, potoos rarely fly during the day. Instead, they perch on top of thin tree stumps. With their dark, speckled plumage, the potoos blend in with the dead trees. When they detect danger, they freeze, extending their necks upward so that they appear to be part of the tree. Potoos also use this technique to protect their unhatched eggs. Rather than constructing a nest, potoos lay a single egg on a branch or stump. The male and female potoos then take turns sitting on the egg to camouflage it from monkeys and other egg predators. Parent potoos continue to sit on their young to camouflage them for two months. Once the baby potoo is too large to hide under its parents, it will adopt the same freeze behavior as its parents. With their white feathers, the baby potoos often look like fungus to predators. Some leaf-mimic katydids have such detailed camouflage that you can find what look like leaf veins on their skin. (Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)2) Leaf-mimic katydid(Mimetica spp.)To conceal themselves from birds and other predators, several species of katydids have evolved camouflage that resembles leaves. The wings of the bug are often crinkled to resemble actual leaves, and some katydids’ camouflage is so detailed that you can see what look like leaf veins on their skin. There are both brown and green variations of the insect that take on the appearance of either living green leaves or dead brown ones. Silky anteaters hide out in kapok trees where they resemble the fuzzy balls formed by the flowering fruits. (Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)3) Silky anteater(Cyclopes didactylus)Though the silky anteater is not very rare, it is almost impossible to spot due to its excellent camouflage. The nocturnal anteater hides out in the branches of kapok trees during the day, curling up into a ball to sleep and blending in with the kapok tree’s pods, which are of similar color and texture to the anteater’s fur. The golden morph of the eyelash pit viper can only be found in Costa Rica where it often hides out in trees with yellow palm fruits. (Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)4) Eyelash pit viper(Bothriechis schlegelii)Though smaller and less aggressive than some of Costa Rica’s other venomous snakes, the eyelash pit viper can still be lethal to humans, and with its variations of vibrant colors, the eyelash pit viper is as beautiful as it is deadly. In Costa Rica, eyelash pit vipers come in brown, gray, light blue and rust-colored. There is also a bright golden morph of the snake that can only be found in Costa Rica and aids the viper in blending in with palm fruits. The snake’s “eyelashes” are a small row of scales over its eyes that biologists believe the snake uses to distinguish its profile from other snakes and aid in camouflage. Bransford’s litter frog camouflaged in a forest in Costa Rica. (Courtesy of Getty Images)5) Bransford’s litter frog(Craugastor bransfordii)Though Bransford’s litter frog is perhaps the most common frog in Costa Rica, chances are you haven’t seen it. Using variations of colors and textures, Bransford’s litter frog is able to blend in with the wet forests along the country’s Caribbean slope. The Celerio Sister caterpillar employs elaborate camouflage to protect itself before it becomes a butterfly. (Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)6) Celerio Sister caterpillar(Adelpha serpa celerio)Before morphing into a beautiful orange, white and black butterfly, the Celerio Sister caterpillar camouflages itself to blend in with mossy tree trunks. The caterpillar dwells in Costa Rica’s rain forests and cloud forests, and has antennae near its head that look like mossy plants. Originally published on Nov. 1, 2014.  Facebook Commentscenter_img Related posts:High-tech backpacks key to saving baby sloths On Pacific beaches, dancing the hermit crab conga Urban flocks (Part 1): 5 common birds of San José Urban flocks (Part 2): 5 more common birds of San Josélast_img read more

Strategic to unveil Air Australia

first_imgStrategic Airlines has set a date to unveil its new brand, as it ditches its full service business model and leaps into the low-cost sector.While revealing its new look on Thursday 3 November this year, the carrier said it will not officially take off as Air Australia until 15 November.With aircraft expected to fly in green and gold livery, the Brisbane based carrier said it is ditching the full service model in order to offer Aussies heading to Bali, Phuket and Hawaii cheaper fares.Earlier this year the carrier’s chief executive Michael James said the change was made to keep up with growing demand for low-cost options in the travel market.”We see a very strong opportunity in the Australian market with Virgin changing its model to focus on corporate and higher-yield passengers, and a large segment of potential domestic and international travellers now somewhat unattended,” Mr James said.”Those are the passengers we are interested in. “Australians are used to regular travel and at a time when interest rates are rising, the cost of living is rising and Australians are even more price-driven than in the past decade, we intend to look after them with a new airline alternative.” Click back onto e-Travel Blackboard later this week for more on Air Australia.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell (93) celebrates his sack of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling If Campbell does leave Arizona, he will finish his time in the desert with 541 tackles, 56.5 sacks, three interceptions, 42 passes defensed, eight fumble recoveries and seven forced fumbles.center_img Eight of Campbell’s sacks came in 2016, and in a season that saw the Cardinals fall short of expectations, Campbell once again proved he is an impact player.Because of that, and other reasons, NFL.com’s Adam Schein put the two-time Pro Bowler at the top of his list of veteran free agents who can help a team.Campbell, who’ll turn 31 just before the start of next season, is still a strong and versatile player, as well as a team leader. He’s been a rock for the always-stout Cardinals defense and a gem in the locker room, on the practice field and in the community, as well. Campbell is still a fine defensive lineman who can play (and has played) in all defensive schemes.The 6-foot-8, 300-pounder posted his typical production in 2016: 53 tackles, eight sacks, six pass deflections, two forced fumbles and even a pick. With his hulking size and powerful game, Campbell’s a problem for opposing offenses. Honestly, he’s one of my favorite players in the league.Campbell would shore up a lot of problems on the Broncos’ defense. He also makes a ton of sense for the Falcons, Cowboys, Saints, Lions and Patriots, if he does indeed leave the Cardinals.The Cardinals have expressed a desire to have Campbell return, and likewise Campbell himself has talked about wanting to remain in Arizona. However, with roughly $17 million of salary cap room available and plenty of holes to fill, it seems somewhat unlikely the sides will be able to come to an agreement unless the player takes significantly less money than he will be offered elsewhere. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo For the longest time people seemed to understand it was possible, yet even still the concept is somewhat difficult to imagine.On March 9, or in the days following, Calais Campbell could sign with a team that is not the Arizona Cardinals.The defensive lineman who was chosen in the second round of the 2008 draft has been a fixture along the team’s defensive line since 2009, and is currently second on the franchise’s all-time sacks list with 56.5.last_img read more
