  • Ohio State victory fueled by big plays in the secondary

Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorA pick-six and three interceptions against Bowling Green in Week 1 was the start coach Urban Meyer was looking for out of his defense. However, all along, he knew Tulsa’s offense would be more of a test for his secondary.From the very first play from scrimmage, the OSU defense made its presence felt.Tulsa redshirt senior quarterback Dane Evans threw to his left on the first play of the opening drive where redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore made a diving interception the pass inside the Tulsa 20 yard line.OSU only mustered a 29-yard field goal from the short field, taking an early 3-0 lead, and continued to look sluggish throughout the first quarter.Redshirt quarterback J.T. Barrett was 2-for-6 passing for 19 yards in the first quarter. Junior H-back Curtis Samuel — who accumulated 261 yards of total offense against Bowling Green — didn’t register a touch on the team’s four possessions in the first quarter, three of which ended in three-and-outs.The offense started to move the ball in the second half, but only could add another short field goal to extend the lead to 6-0.OSU was likely heading into the half without a touchdown when the defense decided to take matters into its own hands.Redshirt sophomore Malik Hooker intercepted a pass from Evans and returned it 26 yards for his first touchdown as a Buckeye, giving the Scarlet and Gray a more comfortable lead heading into halftime.Then, right before the half, the defense struck again. Lattimore returned to the scene in the middle of an intense rainfall at the end of the second quarter, making his second interception of the game when the intended Tulsa wide receiver lost his footing and the ball fell right into the hands of Lattimore, who returned it 40 yards for his first-ever pick six.“Just getting here on defense and having the whole team get hyped for you, it’s a blessing,” Lattimore said. “I love it. I loved getting everybody hyped like that.”The play of the defense thus far has lifted the team at several points in OSU’s first two games. Hooker and Lattimore each sit with a touchdown and five combined picks in just the first two weeks of the season. Hooker said after the game that he had been battling a stomach bug and a nagging back injury throughout the week, yet his performance yielded more raving reviews of his athleticism.At halftime, the Buckeyes led 20-3 without having an offensive touchdown and with just 161 total yards of offense. Co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell that his defense prides itself on harnessing momentum when it’s available.“Whether it’s the offense, defense or special teams, there is momentum in every game and once you get it, you got to keep it,” Fickell said. “If you don’t have it, you got to find a way to get it. We have to be able to feed off of each other, and I think we did a good job of that today.”Fickell compared the 2016 defense to that of 2006 when the Buckeyes had to replace several starters, yet caused turnovers at will.Meyer credits the play of the defense thus far to coaching and the ability of young players to buy into the coaching. He said guys like Lattimore, Hooker and sophomore cornerback Denzel Ward have waited for their opportunity and it’s paying off now.“Secondary tonight, we knew they were going to come out and try to throw the ball around a lot,” Hooker said. “We just wanted to go out there and play our technique, our fundamentals and it ended up working out for us.”Gareon Conley had his first pick of the season late in the third quarter for the defense’s fourth on the day. Moving forward, OSU has its toughest opponent yet of the young season in No. 14 Oklahoma next week in Norman.The secondary has been the best unit on the team for Meyer and company through the first couple weeks, but it knows the road that lies ahead.“The great thing is we have some depth and we have talent,” Fickell said. “But we have to make sure we understand this is a process that we’re going to continue to grow.” read more

    first_imgRelated posts:New plan aims to boost medical tourism industry in Costa Rica Costa Rican companies visit U.S. to promote medical tourism services Medical tourism healthy in Costa Rica Costa Rica: Medical tourism hot spot Arizona-based company American World Clinics (AWC) confirmed the construction of a private hospital in Costa Rica that will offer health care services to foreign retirees and medical tourists.The group will invest $150 million in the construction of a 12,000-square-meter hospital scheduled to open in 2016 in San Rafael de Alajuela, on a nine-hectare property along Route 27, the main road connecting San José with the Pacific province of Puntarenas.The hospital will provide general surgical services and medical specialties including orthopedics, cardiology, urology, oncology, plastic surgery, and others.AWC estimates the hospital will have the capacity to perform up to 18,000 surgeries annually.The project also includes construction of a five-star, 100-room hotel operated by California company K-Hotels, and a retirement community  for some 400 people.The initiative will be funded with capital from National Standard Finance, a long-term investor based in New York, and locally, AWC will work with real estate developers Brenes & Salas, said Enrique Volio, AWC’s representative in Costa Rica.The venture will create some 300 direct jobs, mostly for Costa Rican professionals including doctors, microbiologists, nurses, physical therapists and other support staff.“The quality of its medical professionals, political stability and geographic location of Costa Rica were the main factors for choosing the country,” Volio said.The company currently is developing similar projects in the Dominican Republic and Barbados.Data from the Council for International Promotion of Costa Rica Medicine (PROMED) show that Costa Rica in 2012 attracted nearly 50,000 medical tourists and each one spent an average of $7,000. Medical tourism generated some $338 million in revenue for the country that year, PROMED reported. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

  • Super Committee May Axe Home Benefits Agency Debt

Capitol watchers say important housing laws and provisions may await the congressional guillotine, with the mortgage tax rate deduction, mortgage debt, and other housing-related giveaways in line.[IMAGE]House minority leader “”Rep. Nancy Pelosi””:http://www.pelosi.house.gov/ (D-California) tied off her side of the lower chamber’s committee by tapping “”Rep. James Clyburn””:http://clyburn.house.gov/ (D-South Carolina), “”Rep.

The Senate side will include “”Sen. Jon Kyl””:http://kyl.senate.gov/ (R-Arizona), “”Sen. Pat Toomey””:http://toomey.senate.gov/ (R-Pennsylvania), and “”Sen. Rob Portman””:http://portman.senate.gov/public/ (R-Ohio) as well as “”Sen. Patty Murray””:http://murray.senate.gov/public/ (D-Washington), “”Sen. John Kerry””:http://kerry.senate.gov/ (D-Massachusetts), and “”Sen. Max Baucus””:http://baucus.senate.gov/ (D-Montana).Pelosi offered encouraging remarks in a “”statement””:http://pelosi.house.gov/news/press-releases/2011/08/pelosi-joint-select-committee-must-put-prosperity-for-the-american-people-first.shtml, saying the “”Joint Select Committee has a golden opportunity to take its discussions to the higher ground of America’s greatness and its values. It must meet the aspirations of the American people for success and keep America number one.”” She outlined several areas that she said deserves the super committee’s focus, including deficit reductions helpful to job creation, economic growth, and wage productivity.The super committee appointments follow a recent Senate proposal that aims to progressively slash the mortgage tax rate deduction. Senators say that trimming the deduction could raise as much as $1 trillion in revenue and slash deficits by about $4 trillion over the next decade. The cost for homeowners: approximately $1.2 trillion in tax hikes over 10 years.And the $1.2 trillion question: Will the Senate super committee take an axe to the mortgage tax rate deduction?Edward Pinto, a resident fellow with the “”American Enterprise Institute””:http://www.aei.org/, seems to think so. He says that other tax laws known to benefit the housing industry ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô capital gains taxes, property taxes, home equity loan rates, among others ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô may also have their day in the bicameral hot seat.Lawmakers “”will probably have more hearings, discussions, and bills they introduce”” as Congress seeks to gouge over $14 trillion out of the national debt, he says.Not many Americans would agree with the reductions, according to a recent “”_New York Times_/CBS poll””:http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/06/30/business/poll-home-ownership.html. [COLUMN_BREAK]The poll, released last month, held some 90 percent of Americans opposed deductions in mortgage interest rates, alongside other numbers reflecting that most of the nation’s homebuyers value homeownership as an important asset.Neither, apparently, would the “”National Association of Home Builders””:http://www.nahb.org/ (NAHB), which lobbied House lawmakers back in March to co-sponsor a resolution favoring the mortgage tax rate deduction in response to the Senate proposal. Some 40 lawmakers agreed to co-sponsor the bill.Commenting on the proposed House resolution in a “”statement””:http://www.nahb.org/news_details.aspx?newsID=12232, NAHB chairman and home builder Bob Nielsen said it “”acknowledges the importance of homeownership to individual households, the economy and the nation,”” adding that “”[t]he mortgage interest deduction has been a cornerstone of the nation’s housing policy for almost a century, and it is vital to homeownership and healthy housing markets.””The tax rate deduction may not be the only benefit that goes, says Mark Calabria, director of financial regulation studies at the “”Cato Institute””:http://www.cato.org/. From his office in Washington, D.C., he says that he thinks other housing-related giveaways, such as the low-income housing tax credit and rental depreciation schedules, may also fall under the axe.Pinto says that super committee lawmakers may also set agency debt in their sights ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô something he says he agrees with. “”It is not good for the government to be taking 95 percent of all the credit risk in the country from mortgages,”” he says.He chalks up the problem to a system of competition between Treasury debt and government-backed mortgages, which, in turn, exacerbate the national debt ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the same crisis begetting S&P debt downgrades and action from Congress in the form of super committees.””We’ve now got to this problem where our own Treasury debt is so large and mortgage debt relative to it is so large that buyers are interested in both Treasury debt and mortgage debt with government guarantees,”” he says.With gridlock in the nation’s Capitol at all-time highs, analysts say the super committee may suffer from the same disputes that frustrated public officials ahead of the August 2 debt-ceiling raise. If the committee fails to come to a consensus, the law signed by President Barack Obama creating it will trigger instant cuts in debt, services, and tax deductions across the board.How important is the deficit to the housing industry and economy at large?Speaking to _MReport_, Mike Fratatoni, VP of research and economics for the “”Mortgage Bankers Association””:http://mbaa.org/default.htm, says an unaddressed deficit will force the federal government to borrow more and erase gains from the recovery over the next several years.””Under the current trajectory, U.S. debt will pose a real threat to the economy in just a few years,”” he says. “”You’re going to have the federal government borrowing more, and that will impact borrowers and investors.””People can debate the fine points but the overall trend is troubling, and I think it’s important for policymakers to do something,”” he says.

  • Peterson was down on the ground for a while before

    first_imgPeterson was down on the ground for a while before finally getting up and walking off the field toward the locker room. He admitted it was a scare for him, echoing the sentiments felt by his fans, family and teammates. He did not return to the game and was left to go through the NFL’s concussion protocol before he would get back on the field. Head coach Bruce Arians expressed optimism over the cornerback’s condition Monday, saying Peterson was acting like his usual self at that point, and Wednesday the coach announced that three-time Pro Bowler was “cleared and ready to roll.”That’s music to Bucannon’s ears. The rookie, who said his excitement over making a big hit on Maclin dissipated when he saw what happened to his teammate, could not be happier with how things ultimately turned out.“I felt really bad, the whole time he was out, the whole rest of the game I was feeling it, it was in the back of my mind,” he said. “Because I know how important he is to us and this team and no matter, I wouldn’t want to take this game that I love from anybody else.“Like I said, I’m fortunate that he’s OK.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Peterson said he will now be wearing a newer helmet with the latest technology, but all in all it seems as though crisis has been averted as he was back on the field practicing and getting ready for the Dallas Cowboys. “I’m definitely counting my blessings that I am OK, it wasn’t something serious and something that could hold me back a couple of games,” he said. Comments   Share   TEMPE, Ariz. — When Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson appeared to take the brunt of a Deone Bucannon hit in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Eagles, the worst was feared.“I was kind of worried when I woke up because then I was like, ‘Ahh man, I was knocked out for a second,’” Peterson said Wednesday before the Cardinals took the practice field. “But at the moment, you’re out there playing football, you don’t play for those moments.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img – / 22 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories last_img read more

2016 in AAP’s Media Conference Room Delhi -110054 Shri Kejriwal has been waiting patiently for the past 7 days to see how badly Delhi gets affected by the garbage pileup Now that the entire capital is stinking and traffic thrown out of gear Shri Kejriwal has finally found it fit to embark on a solution to the impasse For your information dear friends in the media this is what Shri Kejriwal tweeted

the valuable solution immediately instead of making the people of Delhi suffer stink and traffic jams for 3 more hours let it be clarified that Shri Kejriwal cannot spill the solution unless there is arrangement for live streaming and live broadcast That will be doing injustice to his charisma as India’s Best Chief Minister Also we thought it fit to generate some suspense instead of providing a

addition to the other documentary evidence that we shall provide in the said press conference that makes it clear that Modiji is responsible for the travesty of making the earth revolve around the sun and not the other way round You are therefore requested to attend/depute your representative/ photographer/TV crew for coverage of the event Yours faithfully A Representative for AAP Still high on an adrenaline rush of having smashed an age-old custom the women decided that they would actually try to say their husband’s names when they got home And they kept their word Over the next few days Rohini got a variety of updates The first video Rohini decided to screen in her discussion club was on the practice of women not addressing their husbands by their first name Screengrab from Video Volunteers One woman’s husband called Rohini to ask what ideas she was putting in the women’s heads His wife wouldn’t stop calling out his name Another club member decided to do it at dinnertime in front of her entire family When her mother-in-law glared at her she got scared and said that it was a mistake Another woman said “Rohini told me to do it” One participant’s husband was less understanding and the situation ended in violence Rohini shares how women have tried to stop other practices like wearing vermilion on their forehead “Why do only women have to show that we’re married I told my husband that if he’d wear vermillion I’d do it too He just laughed and I’ve stopped wearing it” The other women haven’t stopped completely but they feel that they’re in a better position to choose to not to wear it on some days For many of the women this discussion club is a safe space where they can share their opinions and aspirations “We make an excursion out of each discussion club We usually pack lunch and water and go to the field I don’t want the women to worry about who might hear what” she says In the past few months they have celebrated birthdays with cakes for the first time in their lives; they have danced and sung and talked about things they have never given a second thought to “I have worked on these issues for so many years and even I haven’t talked about some of these things like how our identities are tied to our husbands’ this honestly It feels great to be able to say some things out loud no matter how small they seem” says Rohini “At one discussion club we were talking about the concept of honour and how it is related to clothes Many women in the group haven’t worn anything but saris since they got married Most are fine with it but some wanted to wear a salwar-kurta; they didn’t dare” After much debating and discussion on the merits of choosing your own clothes the morality related to saris and so on Rohini smuggled her own set of kurtas to a discussion club so that the women could wear them The women have now decided to plan a trip to Goa so that they can wear jeans and Rohini is certain that she can pull it off Asked whether things have changed in the five months since the first discussion club Rohini explains how a wheel is beginning to turn “Our steps have been small Many women tried it a few times but then they stopped saying their husband’s name Some including myself do it but only when they are alone and no other family member is around Only one or two continue to say their husbands’ names; now only one or two women wear vermilion on their forehead all the time” “Each one of us is a victim of patriarchy I am too But this club gives each one of us the confidence that change will come” The women in the discussion club know that the changes they want to create in their own lives the bargain for more agency over their mobility or choice of clothes are a complex river to navigate Buoying each other’s confidence they acknowledge that they’re in this together As Rohini explains “Each one of us is a victim of patriarchy I am too But this club gives each one of us the confidence that change will come And I know that it won’t be limited to just 30 families there will be a chain reaction when every woman at the club goes home and shares what we talk about and do We’re all in it together”Narendra Modi heads to

for not letting interest rates decline more rapidly as many demanded and argued with empirical evidence in support (Source: Reuters) Top News The die is cast Raghuram Rajan has announced his return to academia Evidently this was separation by mutual consent So we should let it rest at that Looking forward the relevant questions to ask are: Does this reflect the NDA government’s inability to retain talent Did Rajan to some extent bring this upon himself Would this precipitate action by Rajan result in calamitous outcomes for India Were Rajan’s policy priorities in sync with the government’s policy goals Having inherited Rajan as governor of the RBI Narendra Modi and Arun Jaitley gave him maximal support and the widest space to implement the plan he had announced after taking over in September 2013 The government withstood the criticism for not letting interest rates decline more rapidly as many demanded and argued with empirical evidence in support That Rajan succeeded in restraining inflation was partially plain good luck and partly staunch support by the government in maintaining tight fiscal discipline The government also backed down twice in the face of opposition by Rajan first to the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC) recommendations and second to the creation of an independent public debt office in the ministry of finance Moving Rajiv Mehrishi suddenly and unexpectedly out of the Department of Economic Affairs (as secretary) was also perhaps done partly with an eye to placate Rajan What more would a government do to retain talent The more pertinent question is perhaps why Modi took away his support during the last few months WATCH VIDEO |RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan Delivers The First RNG Lecture The principal economic reason would seem to be the continued extreme weakness in credit off-take from commercial banks This is at a decadal low at 8-9 per cent compared for example to 27 per cent in 2009 This signifies both a loss of private investors’ appetite for investment and the commercial banks’ reluctance to advance credit as their balance sheets take hard knocks in the face of unremitting pressure from the RBI to surgically clean up their loan portfolios A government deeply concerned with generating more jobs and raising the rate of economic growth could have expected a helping hand from Rajan Instead the governor seemed bent upon completing the cleaning up even if it implied significant corporate and commercial banks The danger could surely be that the damage in the short term would outweigh the uncertain positive long-term consequences But the other perhaps more plausible reason was Rajan’s attempt to combine the role of a senior policy mandarin with that of a public intellectual I wonder how he did not realise that this is an impossible mix Not only did he advise the finance minister to stick to the fiscal target which was clearly stepping over red lines he also chose to speak publicly on the state of tolerance in the country and whether or not a strong government faces the danger of succumbing to dictatorial tendencies a la the emergency in India or Hitler’s Germany Taking on the role of principal critic is perhaps not conducive to working as part of a team This may be in line with glorifying the RBI’s independence I for one would rather have the RBI work closely with the government to achieve optimal macroeconomic outcomes After all the Peoples Bank of China and the Bank of Japan and even the US Fed are known to work closely with the government in office and not stake out their independent paths Could Rajan an excellent networker otherwise have become a victim of excessive adulation from the community of fawning financial analysts and breathless media anchors who in their selfish interests made him into a prima donna who was beyond all established norms Rajan also riled a few of Modi’s cabinet colleagues by not engaging with them as equals and instead responding to them through public platforms almost in hectoring tones The remark on Make in India; letting the minister of commerce know about the correctness of his foreign exchange stance through the C D Deshmukh lecture; exhorting small and medium entrepreneurs to not expect any relief from a depreciating rupee — could all have been handled more discreetly and less dismissively Third it is surely a gross exaggeration to claim that come tomorrow foreign investors will boycott India and decamp in hordes from our shores The markets have taken this in their stride and shown that they believe while individuals are important it is institutions and their inherent capabilities that drive economic outcomes All major brokerages have already announced that the India story remains intact With my high respect for Rajan’s undoubtedly superior intellect and capabilities I still have to insist that India’s structural strengths that include its robust institutions and future growth prospects will continue to attract investment Fourth having announced flexible inflation targeting as his preferred policy objective Rajan was unremitting in his drive for squeezing out all inflationary expectations from the system In this he was lucky as global oil prices plummeted soon after he took over One wonders the extent to which Rajan would have hiked rates had global oil prices remained in the vicinity of $140 Food prices are an important driver of inflationary expectations These are driven more by the supply-demand dynamics than by the interest rate policies especially when the transmission mechanism is weak Could better results not have been achieved if the RBI and relevant government agencies worked together behind the scenes to address supply constraints that push up food inflation in the country and raise the price of wage goods thereby pushing up costs This in turn forced the RBI to keep interests rates high delivering a double whammy to the industrialists as they end up suffering from both high wage and capital costs Therefore it is as I said earlier sad to see Rajan return to Chicago However it is not entirely the government’s fault and he would have to share part of the blame for this unfortunate situation The most important lesson to my mind is for the government to choose a substitute who has not only the domain competence but also the ability and humility to work as an effective and a somewhat self-effacing member of India’s economic policy team The collective aim would be to generate maximum employment growth while retaining macroeconomic stability This can be achieved without generating so much heat or light (This article first appeared in the print edition under the headline ‘It takes two’) The writer is senior fellow?
