Temporary Location of Halifax Youth Attendance Centre

first_imgSpace in St. Patrick’s High School on Quinpool Road in Halifax will serve as the temporary location of the Halifax Youth Attendance Centre. The Halifax Youth Attendance Centre will provide one-stop access to programming for youth under court-ordered community supervision in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Programs will include education, counselling, job training and addictions treatment. “This is an important next step in the development of this service to youth in the community,” said Justice Minister Murray Scott. “We’re pleased to have the support of the Halifax Regional School Board as we move forward to enhance services for youth in the community.” Students will be accepted in the attendance centre for the second term semester, beginning in February. Renovations are currently taking place in the lower level of St. Patrick’s High School so that the space will be equipped to accommodate students. Initially, the attendance centre will accommodate 20 students into the school program with even more youth being able to access day, evening and weekend programming. “The Halifax Regional School Board is looking at all our options in terms of providing support to at-risk students,” said Gary O’Hara, chair of the Halifax Regional School Board. “We are optimistic that the attendance centre will have a positive impact on the lives of young people in our community.” It is anticipated that the attendance centre will open in its permanent location in the autumn of 2007. Many provincial government departments, including the Department of Justice, the Department of Health, the Department of Education and the Department of Community Services, as well as outside agencies, have partnered to contribute to the successful operation of the Halifax Youth Attendance Centre.last_img read more

Reservation should continue till beneficiaries need it RSS

first_imgPushkar (Raj): Reservation is required because there is social and economic disparity in society, and should continue till its beneficiaries feel it is needed, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh said here on Monday.RSS joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale added that the organisation strongly feels that temples, cremation grounds and water reservoirs should be open for all and not restricted to any specific caste. “There is social and economic disparity in our society and therefore reservation is required…we totally support the reservation as mandated by the Constitution,” he said at a press conference on the last day of the Sangh’s three-day coordination meeting here. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Asked whether the RSS feels reservation should not continue indefinitely, Hosabale said it is for the beneficiaries of the system to decide. “Reservation should continue till its beneficiaries feel it is required,” he said, clearing his organisation’s stance on quotas. A Dalit organisation, he said, had written to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat applauding the Sangh’s stand on ending discrimination in society. The RSS strongly feels and has been working towards the belief that temples, cremation grounds and water reservoirs should be open for all, he said. PTIlast_img read more

Former military medic gets nine months in prison for inappropriate breast exams

first_imgOTTAWA – A former military medical technician convicted of conducting inappropriate breast exams on female recruits has been sentenced to nine months in prison.Chief military judge Col. Mario Dutil told a military court in London, Ont., that retired petty officer James Wilks will serve the time in a civilian prison concurrently with a previous 30-month sentence.Wilks was found guilty in a military court in February on one count of sexual assault and three counts of breach of trust after performing breast exams on female recruits.It was the third such conviction for Wilks, who has already spent nine months behind bars after being convicted of similar crimes in December 2011.A military court sentenced Wilks to an additional 30 months in prison in 2013, but he appealed the matter.The convictions all stem from incidents that occurred before Wilks retired from the military in April 2011.Wilks testified at the end of January that he had conducted thousands of medical exams on prospective military recruits during his more than 25 years in uniform.Military commanders have been grappling with the issue of sexual misconduct in the ranks since media reports three years ago that a large number of incidents were being ignored or played down.Defence chief Gen. Jonathan Vance has since taken a hard line on any sexual misconduct, including threatening to kick out anyone found guilty of inappropriate behaviour.last_img read more

Crown appeals ruling ending NS fraud case because of careless RCMP

first_imgHALIFAX – The Crown is appealing a Nova Scotia ruling that threw out a decade-long, $1.5-million-dollar fraud case because of what the judge said were “indefensible” RCMP investigation methods.Justice Denise Boudreau stayed multiple fraud allegations against businessmen Douglas Rudolph and Peter Mill in a decision published on Dec. 20, saying the investigators’ actions in 2011 were “grossly careless.”Boudreau had earlier ruled in October that two police officers violated the constitution by talking to lawyer Mark David, who handled some of the money for an accused, about his dealings with clients.She said the courts should jealously guard the long-standing principle of professional secrecy known as client-solicitor privilege.“In an act which I can only describe as indefensible, the police offered Mr. David immunity from prosecution for giving information against the applicants,” she wrote.“While I agree that this was not a typical situation for the police, I have no difficulty in finding that their actions were grossly careless.”In a 2002 ruling, the Supreme Court of Canada set down 10 principles that guided police on how to search and make seizures from lawyers or their offices. That process usually requires all documents be sealed and vetted by the courts to ensure the material doesn’t contain privileged material before police investigators view it.The judge said in her original October decision that the officers could have gone to a third party to conduct the interview of David and then have sent a sealed transcript to the court for vetting.She said not doing so amounted to negligence by the Mounties.“The … rules exist to protect solicitor-client privilege, which must surely extend to information in a lawyer’s head,” she wrote in the Dec. 20 decision.The Crown argued during the trial that client-solicitor privilege doesn’t apply when the communication furthers a crime, and also argued that the judge should have looked at the transcript to see what was actually said.In its notice of intention to appeal, the Crown says Boudreau made errors of law in her ruling about the police actions, arguing that the constitutional rights of the accused weren’t breached.Furthermore, the prosecutors say the judge could have found a solution other than throwing out the case altogether.The notice to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal says that if the Crown is successful, a new trial will be requested.David was disbarred in 2009 after the province’s barristers’ society investigated him for his involvement with the CanGlobe Group of Companies and Mill during the period of the alleged frauds, 2004 through 2008.That July 15 ruling said the former in-house solicitor for an airline had entered private corporate practice and was devoting much of his time to the CanGlobe companies.In an agreed statement of facts, it said many of the business proposals he supported involved loans or investments that would be repaid with high rates of interest in very short periods of time.“None of the international financing promised (to repay loans) … came to fruition and investors and lenders remained unpaid,” it says.In addition, the barristers’ society found that David had improperly handled funds given to him in trust.In addition to being disbarred, he was fined over $300,000.Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.last_img read more

Man grabbed boy by throat in Kingston Ont road rage incident police

first_imgKINGSTON, Ont. – A 46-year-old man is facing charges after allegedly attacking a child in a road rage incident in eastern Ontario.Police say the accused was the passenger in a car that had been driving through a Kingston, Ont., parking lot at high speed. They say a near collision resulted in him “flipping off” another driver, who then honked his horn.Investigators allege that after the driver who honked parked his vehicle, the accused approached and yelled racial remarks and threatened he could have him killed.When the driver’s 13-year-old son told the accused not to speak to his father like that, police say the accused allegedly grabbed the boy by the throat.Police say the father began yelling and punching at the accused in an attempt to get him to let go of his son, which attracted passersby who intervened and broke up the altercation.They say a Kingston man was arrested at his home and charged with assault and uttering threats arising from the Saturday morning incident.last_img read more

Maken accuses BJP of doing injustice to govt employees

first_imgNEW DELHI: Former Union Minister Ajay Maken on Saturday accused the BJP government of doing injustice to government employees, saying that the Modi government gave the worst recommendations in the seventh pay commission.Addressing a press conference here, he said: “The BJP has been known for its anti-government employee stand.” Maken also assured that if voted to power, the Congress will become the voice of the government employees and will fill the 22 lakh vacant posts and also regularise the jobs of the contractual workers. Also Read – CM urges Delhiites to help accident victims”In 2003, when the NDA was in power, they did not permit to form the committee for the sixth pay commission. And after coming to power in 2014, they gave the worst seventh pay commission recommendations,” he said. Maken, who is contesting from the New Delhi Lok Sabha seat against Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Meenakshi Lekhi, said there are about 35 per cent government employees in his parliamentary constituency and so he is raising the issue. Also Read – Kejriwal seeks Transport Dept’s views on odd-even exemption”In our times the government employees got about 40 per cent increment, while in the seventh pay commission recommendation the BJP government gave only 14.29 per cent increment,” he said, adding that the government also reduced several allowances to government officials. “Due to the seventh pay commission recommendations, the pay parity between the lower posts and the higher posts has increased significantly,” he added. The government has also accepted the recommendations of the seventh pay commission that there would be no eighth pay commission, Maken said. Maken alleged that 7 MPs from BJP did not care about the welfare of government employees & never raised the issue of government employees in the Parliament or outside through protests. The government employees were waiting to teach Delhi BJP MPs a lesson and vote them out. He said in contrast Congress leaders were active in raising the issue of government employees both inside & outside the Parliament. He further stated that Congress has a proven track record of taking care of the welfare of government employees.last_img read more

SNCLavalin delays jury decision in corruption trial until June 28

MONTREAL — SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. is pushing back its decision on whether to opt for a trial by jury or by judge alone in a corruption case that has tripped up the engineering giant and ensnared it in a political controversy for months.Defence lawyer Francois Fontaine told the Court of Quebec on Friday he needs more time to make decision.Last week a Quebec judge ruled there is enough evidence to send SNC-Lavalin to trial over charges of fraud and corruption, prompting a further tumble in the beleaguered firm’s share price.The company has previously pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges. It is due back in court June 28.The Montreal-based company is accused of paying $47.7 million in bribes to public officials in Libya between 2001 and 2011. SNC-Lavalin, its construction division and a subsidiary also face one charge each of fraud and corruption for allegedly defrauding various Libyan organizations of $129.8 million.Since early February, SNC-Lavalin has been at the centre of a political controversy following accusations from former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould that top government officials pressured her to overrule federal prosecutors and negotiate a deferred prosecution agreement with the company.The Canadian Press read more

Theresa May Let us take pride in our Christian heritage

first_img“Let us take pride in our Christian heritage”, Theresa May has said, as she paid tribute to the armed forces and emergency services in her Christmas message. The Prime Minister thanked “all those whose service to others means they will be spending time away from their loved ones this Christmas”. The response to terror attacks in Manchester and London earlier this year, and to the Grenfell Tower disaster, “inspired the nation”, she said. But the action of the emergency services “saves lives in our communities every day, including Christmas Day,” she added. She also paid tribute to volunteer projects such as the Churches Together initiative which combines the efforts of different Christian denominations to respond to issues such as the refugee crisis, as well as aid workers abroad. She also called on the public to stand up for the right for people to “speak about and practice their beliefs in peace and safety”. She added: “As we celebrate the birth of Christ, let us celebrate all those selfless acts – and countless others – that epitomise the values we share: Christian values of love, service and compassion that are lived out every day in our country by people all faiths and none.”Let us take pride in our Christian heritage and the confidence it gives us to ensure that in Britain you can practice your faith free from question or fear.”Let us remember those around the world today who have been denied those freedoms – from Christians in some parts of the Middle East to the sickening persecution of the Rohingya Muslims.”Earlier this week she declared that Islamic State had been “crushed” in Syria and Iraq, telling servicemen and women at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus that they should be “very proud” of the achievement. She told the troops: “It is you, your professionalism, your courage and your sacrifices that give meaning to the pledges we make as a nation. It is you who take down our enemies and stand by our allies when the going gets tough.”May, a vicar’s daughter and regular churchgoer, has previously spoken of the influence of her Christian faith. Earlier this year she told Christian radio station Premier that faith “guides me in everything I do”. In a poll carried out by the station she was voted the party leader most like Jesus.  She has also spoken of how her Christian faith helped her cope with the loss of her parents when she was just 25. In his own Christmas message Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged people to think about others who are “cut off and lonely” or living in war-torn nations at Christmas.The MP for Islington North used his second Christmas message to highlight Britain’s pride in being a “compassionate nation”.”It’s a time of the year when we think about others. Like those who have no home to call their own or who are sleeping rough on our streets.”We think about those who feel cut off and lonely. Many older citizens to whom we owe so much will be spending what should be a time of joy alone,” he said. He added that his “Christmas wish” would be “that we all do more to help bring about the kind of society and world we want to live in”.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Seven complaints rejected over Late Late Show panellist suggestion to bin cyclists

first_img 94 Comments By Hayley Halpin http://jrnl.ie/4096053 Seven complaints rejected over Late Late Show panellist suggestion to ‘bin’ cyclists Three panellists were invited to state what things they would “bin” for the New Year. Wednesday 27 Jun 2018, 9:18 PM The broadcaster is of the view that the main editorial goal was to amuse the audience, partly through comic exaggeration, and the segment was not a serious discussion on road use or traffic safety nor was it meant to reflect a position of the broadcaster or the show on the issue of cycling safety in general. SEVEN COMPLAINTS MADE against RTÉ’s The Late Late Show after a panellist said they would “bin” cyclists have been rejected by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.During a segment of the programme on 12 January, three panellists were invited to state what things they would “bin” for the New Year and one of the panellists nominated cyclists.One complainant claimed that the programme promoted mistaken myths against cyclists and that the programme presenter encouraged and magnified this “hate speech”, aimed at dehumanising people who cycle.The complainant claimed that cyclists were referred to as simply “blocking the roads”, as sheep, cows and farm animals.They said they believe that this segment of the show was offensive to people who cycle and would promote violence and aggression against cyclists.Another complainant claimed that the comments in the programme referring to “arrogant cyclists” and those cycling side-by-side, while meant to be light-hearted, could encourage frustration and anger against vulnerable road users, which they said is dangerous and irresponsible.Responding to the two above complaints, RTÉ said that “this was a comedic and light-hearted segment in which guests were asked to nominate their ‘pet hates’ and this editorial context was made clear to the audience”.“One of the panellists wished to put ‘arrogant cyclists’ into the bin and her primary concern was ‘three or four cyclists abreast on a country road’,” RTÉ said. Jun 27th 2018, 9:18 PM Short URLcenter_img Image: Sam Boal via RollingNews.ie In relation to the first complainant, RTÉ said that “the comparison of cyclists with farm animals was in the context of cyclists three or four abreast blocking the roads”.“The broadcaster regrets the presenter’s error in referring to cyclists two abreast and acknowledges that this practice is not illegal. The broadcaster refutes the claim made in the complaint that one of the panellists inferred that cyclists should not be treated with consideration.“The broadcaster maintains that none of the panellists condemned all cyclists nor was there any encouragement to cause harm to cyclists.”RulingIn its ruling published today, the BAI said that it decided to reject the complaints.The Committee was mindful of the provision set out in the Code of Programme Standards, in which persons and groups in society shall be represented in an appropriate and justifiable way and shall not be treated in a manner which prejudices respect for human dignity. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Image: Sam Boal via RollingNews.ie 24,279 Views The members noted that Principle 5 has specific regard for the fact that certain individuals or groups may be considered as vulnerable and, as such, may require additional protection from discrimination.The BAI said it was the opinion of the Committee that the complaints, as submitted, “did not adequately demonstrate that cyclists should be considered as a vulnerable group and did not, therefore, warrant the additional protection provided for in Principle 5 of the Code”.Five other similar complaints in relation to this segment of the show were made and rejected by the BAI.One other complaint in relation to RTÉ Radio One’s Liveline was also rejected by the BAI’s Compliance Committee.The Executive Complaints Forum of the BAI considered and rejected 16 other complaints.These rulings were made at meetings held on 7 March and 18 April.

Coast Guard rescues 3 mariners beset by weather 30 miles west of

first_img December 6, 2018 SAN DIEGO (COAST GUARD) — The Coast Guard rescued 3 mariners beset by weather approximately 30 miles west of Oceanside, Thursday.Mariners aboard the 35-foot sailing vessel, Julia B Lewis, contacted Coast Guard Sector San Diego’s Joint Harbor Operations Center watchstanders at approximately 5 p.m. Wednesday reporting that the boat was disabled with three people aboard, two of which were seasick and another with a head injury.The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Halibut arrived on scene to assist at approximately 8:15 p.m. Halibut’s crew attempted to launch their small boat crew to attempt an at-sea passenger transfer though they were unsuccessful due to weather conditions and sea state.The crew remained on scene overnight to attempt to tow the vessel to a safe harbor once the weather permitted. At approximately 7:45 a.m. Thursday, the vessel’s crew reported that an 80-year-old man suffering from a head injury was also exhibiting symptoms of complications from diabetes and a 25-year-old man was exhibiting symptoms of dehydration.A Coast Guard Sector San Diego MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew launched to assist at approximately 8:15 a.m.Once on scene, the Jayhawk crew lowered a rescue swimmer to provide care and assist the patients before hoisting them into the helicopter. The crew returned with the two patients to Sector San Diego shortly before noon where awaiting emergency medical services personnel took over care of the patients and transferred them to Balboa Naval Medical Center in San Diego.  Both were reported to be in stable condition.The remaining mariner, a 54-year-old man, remained with the sailing vessel.Halibut’s crew is scheduled to tow the vessel to Avalon Harbor.-USCG- KUSI Newsroom, Updated: 2:38 PM Posted: December 6, 2018center_img KUSI Newsroom Coast Guard rescues 3 mariners beset by weather 30 miles west of Oceanside Categories: Local San Diego News, Traffic & Accidents FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Meet the Cybersecurity Startup Thats Caught the Eye of Googles Eric Schmidt

first_img 4 min read High-profile hacks are, sadly, the new normal. The list is endless: there were the security breaches at Target and Home Depot, the leaked emails at Sony and the most recent cyber attack on the federal government, just to name a few.But hope is not yet lost. Shlomo Touboul, CEO of Illusive Networks, says his company could have stopped these attacks if his company’s software had been used at the time.That’s a bold statement for a company that’s less than two years old, but the Tel Aviv-based startup has some street cred. For starters, the company’s founder, Ofer Israeli, was a member of Israel’s elite 8200 Unit, the Israeli equivalent of the NSA. He used his training when creating the software, so it’s much harder to crack. Moreover, Illusive Networks raised $5 million in Series A funding from cybersecurity think tank Team 8, which is a partner with Innovation Endeavors, the VC firm founded by Google Chairman Eric Schmidt.”Illusive Networks is a perfect example of the kind of ‘out of the box’ thinking necessary to challenge the growing threat of targeted attacks,” Schmidt said in a press release.Related: Password Statistics: The Bad, the Worse and the Ugly (Infographic)The out-of-the-box thinking Schmidt mentioned refers to how the system works. “The founders sat together with people from the 8200 Unit and they said, ‘Everyone’s focusing on the malware, but instead of focusing on that, step backward one step and look at the people who create the malware,’” Touboul says. “The attacker has a weakness, like every human being. We thought about the attack from their point of view — how they think, behave and act. We have a very good understanding of how they act so we know how to deceive them in their own territory.”To do this, the company puts false information where the hackers are looking, side-by-side with the real data. If the attacker picks up the fake data, internal alarm bells are triggered. This is a different approach than what is now commonly used, where non security is activated when a non-user enter a system. The problem with that approach, Touboul says, is that hackers know this and therefore make themselves look like a normal user to anyone who might be monitoring activity. “What they never had was someone to put deceptions on the way they act and behave,” he explains.Related: How Secure Is Your Small Business? 5 Tips to Protect Against Modern Cyber Attacks.For any major hacking job, the hacker must take many small steps, using the information gained in one step to help make the next one. If the information is faulty during any maneuver, it thwarts the attack. The attack on Sony Pictures, for example, took months to orchestrate and involved thousands of steps, according to Touboul. “I’m strongly positive about our security,” he says. “We know for sure that we could deceive them at any point in their moves.”American companies are betting on it. So far, Illusive Networks says it has somewhere between 20,000 to 50,000 users. While Touboul won’t name specific clients — for security purposes, of course — he admits that they from such sectors as  financial institutions, Fortune 500 companies, legal firms, insurance companies and health-care companies. “Currently, there are more requests to install the product and we’re short on manpower,” Touboul says. The next step, then, is expanding the sales and engineering teams.As technology has improved, so have the criminals that exploit it. This new approach is testing the idea that the best defense is a good offense. “To catch the sophisticated hacker, you have to play on their field.”Related: 5 Exploding Niches Within Tech June 9, 2015 Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Top Stories

first_img Top Stories “It’s probably a safe bet to assume Arizona sports fans are excited to move on from 2017.”This is our lede from last year’s edition. Yeesh, we really didn’t know how bad it could get, huh?This year has been a rough one for Arizona sports.Let’s try to get through 2018 by looking at the most telling photos from this year.Arizona Cardinals(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)The year started for the Cardinals with the retirement of Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer, and the year ends with concerns about the two individuals that replaced them. The ingredients are there, and it’s now on first-year head coach Igor Kokoskov and the organization to brew a winner out of the team’s high level of young talent.(AP Photo/Charles Krupa)January might tell us a different tale, but December shows a Suns team starting to find its identity. With Ayton, Booker and Warren providing the offensive skill, the likes of Bridges, Jackson, De’Anthony Melton, Richaun Holmes and Kelly Oubre Jr. bring superior defensive length, intensity and athleticism. Through that, Phoenix won four in a row for the first time since March of 2015.The role players have begun to rub off on the stars, leading to Booker playing the best defense of his career over that stretch and Ayton beginning to improve with his reactions as the anchor of a defense.If the Suns make the pivot out of a rebuilding team into actual competitiveness and winning, a four-game run in December of 2018 will be remembered as the launching point. All of that will be without former general manager Ryan McDonough, who was fired nine days before the start of the season and will have to watch the team he mostly built grow without him. Is Steve Wilks the coach of the Arizona Cardinals when this year finishes up? Signs point to no, as it has been evident since the team’s first game that Wilks’ team was miles behind where it needed to be.Injuries have ravaged the Cardinals for the second straight season, but Wilks’ lack of answers in his first year as a head coach doesn’t bode well for his future.And what about not only the rest of his staff, but general manager Steve Keim?(AP Photo/Ralph Freso)Wilks’ and Keim’s job security are under bigger risk when you consider rookie quarterback Josh Rosen and how much the Cardinals need to prioritize putting the No. 10 pick in the right positions to succeed.Rosen’s 2018 has been discouraging. He’s thrown more interceptions (14) than touchdowns (10), and while his footwork and movement in the pocket is impressive, his ball accuracy has left more to be desired.Like the team’s season as a whole, though, Rosen’s struggles can be blamed on the changes around him. From an offensive line that couldn’t stay healthy to offensive coordinator Mike McCoy being fired after Week 6, a lackluster season out of David Johnson didn’t help, either. Oh, yeah, remember Sam Bradford crashing and burning too? Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona State Sun Devils(AP Photo/Ralph Freso)If you don’t have a seat on the train, I’ve got some bad news for you — it has reached full capacity.First-year head coach Herm Edwards is clearly onto something in Tempe, finishing with a 7-6 record and undoubtedly being the biggest surprise of the Arizona sports year.With great freshmen contributors this season and another strong recruiting class coming in next year, the train isn’t stopping anytime soon.(AP Photo/John LocherBobby Hurley’s team nearly submarined out of the NCAA Tournament last season after a 12-0 start, losing five of their last six games before the big dance.That, unpredictably, led to a first-round loss against Syracuse.With three senior guards on the way out, a rebuilding year seemed likely for Hurley. But with sensational freshman Luguentz Dort, a much improved Kimani Lawrence and the versatile Zylan Cheatham, Arizona State started the year 8-2 and once again ranked in the top-25.A home win over No. 1 Kansas only added to the thought that the Sun Devils could be the class of a murky and perhaps mediocre Pac-12. Arizona Coyotes(AP Photo/Darryl Webb)The Coyotes’ 2018 is defined by what has plagued them: inconsistency.After the worst start in franchise history last season, Rick Tocchet’s squad was a playoff team in the last two months.For the 2018-19 season, though, the Coyotes have won or lost at least three games in a row on six different occasions, and that’s as of the team being only 36 games into the season.(Jade Hanson/Cronkite News)General manager John Chayka is still trying to construct his ideal roster.While the Coyotes certainly have young talent, Chayka has blended in pricey veterans like Alex Goligoski, Niklas Hjalmarsson and Derek Stepan.He’s also consistently shuffling his roster, most notably shipping out Max Domi in exchange for Alex Galchenyuk and former lottery picks Brendan Perlini and Dylan Strome to acquire Nick Schmaltz.With certainty, Oliver Ekman-Larsson is the only clear long-term piece the Coyotes hold, and he was already in the Valley when Chayka was hired in May of 2016.How his young pieces develop, particularly Clayton Keller currently going through a disappointing sophomore campaign, will shape the future of the team and how Chayka continues to switch things up. How much Rosen’s poor play was on his surroundings as much as it was on himself as a quarterback will tell the story of the Cardinals’ 2019 and if their quarterback of the present can still grow into the quarterback of the future.Arizona Diamondbacks(AP Photo/Michael Owen Baker)Oh, how quick we are to forget the Diamondbacks were the best story in baseball 35 games in.In what has to go down as one of the most puzzling and confounding seasons in Arizona sports history, the D-backs went from 24-11 to completely melting down after a Labor Day weekend nightmare in Los Angeles.Arizona’s bullpen, led by fan favorite Archie Bradley and relative unknowns Brad Boxberger and Yoshihisa Hirano, went from baseball’s best in the first half of the season to one of the worst from August on.Even after the team added Eduardo Escobar, Jon Jay and a healthy Steven Souza Jr., an offensive lineup loaded with talent never clicked and failed to be anything better than mediocre.In a wide-open National League, the D-backs were poised for a pennant run in early May. By early September, they were chasing a Wild Card spot, a chase that came up embarrassingly short and forced general manager Mike Hazen to zoom out and take the team’s current trajectory under serious consideration. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 0 Comments   Share   (AP photos) (Robert Cohen/St. Louis Post-Dispatch via AP)That brought on the unpopular decision to trade one of the franchise’s best players ever. The Diamondbacks traded Paul Goldschmidt and his expiring contract to the St. Louis Cardinals. With pitcher Patrick Corbin receiving $140 million from the Washington Nationals, the D-backs went from being seven games away from a World Series birth in 2017 to attempting to quickly reset with a turbo rebuild in the 2018 offseason.Phoenix Suns(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)When you lose 32 of your last 36 games to end the season, sometimes you land the big fella.The Suns won the NBA Draft Lottery and selected Arizona big man Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall pick.Ayton’s vibrant personality mixed with the off-the-charts potential to be one of the NBA’s best centers is a dynamic combination to watch unfold over the next several years.Phoenix also traded for the draft rights to promising defensive star Mikal Bridges, cementing in the Suns’ future core of Ayton, Bridges, Devin Booker, Josh Jackson and T.J. Warren. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona Wildcats(Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Star via AP)The story for the Wildcats last season should have been one of their most talented rosters of all time, featuring No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton and all-around scoring machine Allonzo Trier.But an FBI investigation into college basketball’s corruption prominently featured Arizona and head coach Sean Miller, including assistant coach Book Richardson being arrested and awaiting to take the stand in April.An ESPN report suggested UA coach Sean Miller was caught on a wiretap discussing an impermissible payment to Ayton, but investigations by the university cleared both of any wrongdoing.Once the very large, ugly cloud over the program faded, it was back to business as usual. Miller has 2019’s top recruiting class.(AP Photo/Young Kwak)Perhaps the biggest overall disappointment of the 2018 Arizona sports year was Khalil Tate.Tate was seen as not only a potential Heisman finalist in the preseason, but the favorite for many.Instead, due to injury or otherwise, Tate lost his rushing ability that made him potent last year and the Wildcats took a huge dip, finishing 5-7 and blowing one of the most unforgettable Territorial Cup finishes ever.last_img read more
