The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories If you’re a Cardinals fan, you should be gushing over this signing. The Cardinals got a player on a one-year deal who wants to prove he’s more than a one-year deal player. The Cardinals have a CB who’s been expected to shut down the number one receiver and play at an elite level. However, the Cardinals won’t need him to do that.It is a big deal what this does for the Cardinals’ defense. Many things will be written about what Todd Bowles can do with his new toy. Yes, that’s important. But to me, the bigger deal is Keim.The signing of Jared Veldheer is nice because he’s an above average, young left tackle. The contract for Veldheer is much bigger than just the signing. While other teams completely over-pay, Keim filled a need while getting value at the same time. Few GMs can pull off that double.Now, Keim gets a proven CB on a contract that forces Cromartie to prove it again. Keim wanted Cromartie but when Antonio didn’t sign, Keim talked with another CB. Cromartie didn’t get the offers he was looking for elsewhere. He also wanted to be a Cardinal and his agent knew it. Keim didn’t panic and pressured Cromartie at the same time. He completely read 31 other GMs correctly. Keim never negotiated against himself. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling We’ve always known athletes want to play in Phoenix. Now athletes want to play for Bruce Arians. Athletes love talking to a football player and Keim is that player. Steve Keim isn’t terribly far removed from his playing days. He speaks to the players the way they want to be spoken to. He’s not so old that he’s some suit in an office, but he’s experienced enough that his youthful mistakes are out of the way.He evaluates talent well. He negotiates well. He recruits well. He manages a staff well. What other criteria is left for a good GM?Seattle and San Francisco are still the class of the division. That doesn’t change until it’s proven on the field. Never forget, however, the Cardinals are only one season removed from their third straight year with a six-game losing streak. That was the last year of Steve Keim not in his current position as general manager. Since then, he’s 2-0 in offseasons. All morning I’m thinking nothing will take me away from college basketball. This is my time to do nothing but do what I love. Baseball and college basketball.Then the Cardinals strike. Antonio Cromartie and Patrick Peterson are in the same defensive backfield.It’s not just the signing that makes Steve Keim impressive as a GM, it’s the way he goes about it. Any GM could have thrown enough cash at Cromartie to get him to jump. Keim uses leverage and recruiting at the same time, which seems to be impossible.

Rep LaSata helps Michigan House approve work requirements for Medicaid welfare benefits

Rep LaSata helps Michigan House approve work requirements for Medicaid welfare benefits

first_img06Jun Rep. LaSata helps Michigan House approve work requirements for Medicaid welfare benefits Categories: LaSata News,News State Rep. Kim LaSata today joined the Michigan House in approving a requirement that able-bodied adults be employed, prepare for a job or engage in community service for at least 80 hours a month to retain Medicaid welfare coverage.The requirement generally would apply to able-bodied adults who only became eligible for coverage under the state’s Obamacare-related expansion of the program, called the Healthy Michigan Plan. Some already have jobs and would not need to make changes to continue receiving benefits.“Seeking and securing employment is a major factor in the move toward self-sufficiency and building a better future,” said LaSata, of Bainbridge Township. “Also, it’s reasonable to expect able-bodied adults to either work, train, or give back to society in some way to earn a government benefit like Medicaid. We already have similar requirements for food and cash assistance welfare programs, so this is a logical step. It’s only fair to the taxpayers who are paying the bills for these programs.”The workforce engagement requirements do not affect children, seniors or the disabled. There also are multiple exemptions for able-bodied adults including pregnancy, parents with children under 6, caretakers of a disabled dependent, full-time students and those on unemployment. There also is discretion to grant temporary exemptions for other good causes.Four other states already have added Medicaid work engagement rules and many others are planning to do so.Michigan’s measure also requires able-bodied adults who have been in the Healthy Michigan Plan for more than four years to take steps to improve their own health and contribute financially to their coverage.Senate Bill 897 returns to the Senate for further consideration.####last_img read more

A risk which resulted in a driving ban,” he said.Assistant Chief Constable Todd added: “Nobody should find themselves asking the question, I wonder if I’m ok to drive? ACC ALAN TODDAN GARDA TRAFFIC CORPSborderBREXITPSNIPSNI AND GARDAI LAUNCH CROSS BORDER DRINK DRIVE CAMPAIGN THERE may be a raging debate over Brexit and whether there will be a ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ border between Derry and Donegal.But as far as the PSNI and Gardai are concerned, road safety knows NO borders.PSNI Road Policing in partnership with An Garda Traffic Corp have launched the 2017 cross border drink drive campaign. “Or trying to calculate if they are under the drink drive limit, be it after one drink, or the morning after a night out.“Do not take the risk.“The consequences, as police officers and our emergency service colleagues witness first hand, can be catastrophic.“Any driver or motorcyclist who police stop, whether for speeding, using a mobile phone, or committing any moving traffic offence can expect to be breathalysed.“So too can anyone involved in a collision or who we suspect may have consumed alcohol or taken drugs.“I want all motorists to think about the consequences to yourself and your family of being involved in a serious collision.“How would you feel if your actions resulted in you or one of your family being paralysed?“How would you feel if some innocent person was killed? Consider too the impact of losing your driving license. Would you also lose your job? Your home?“I am also appealing for all road users and pedestrians to exercise caution and put road safety first.“With longer hours of darkness and winter weather, road users need to make extra effort to look out for pedestrians and cyclists particularly along rural roads. Pedestrians and cyclists should wear bright clothing, reflective jackets or armbands where possible to ensure they can be seen.“Our aim with this operation is to keep people safe.!People need to put as much effort into planning how to get home safely, as they do planning their night out.“I do not want police officers knocking on doors at any time of the year, but especially over Christmas and the New Year, to tell families that a loved one has been killed on the roads,” added ACC Todd.PSNI AND GARDAI LAUNCH CROSS BORDER DRINK DRIVE CAMPAIGN was last modified: December 6th, 2017 by John2John2 Tags:last_img read more
