Nintendo’s E3 presentation was nonexistent when compared to Sony and Microsoft, but a couple of the games they announced are already in ready to play states so we went hands on.Rather than have a big press event at E3 this year, Nintendo opted to take their demo experience out of the convention center and into the hands of people who could already buy a console or pre-order the games they just played. Select Best Buy locations around the US offered a few users a chance to play. We stopped by and took a look at Mario Kart 8 and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for the Wii U.First up is Mario Kart 8. From the title menu, Mario Kart fans will enjoy the HD boost to the game. Everything looks fantastic, and still feels very familiar. Choose your character, choose your track, and you’re good to go.The demo was limited to two players, one on the Gamepad and one on the WiiMote. The Gamepad could either be used to steer with the controls or with the gyroscope in the pad. The size of the Gamepad lends itself well to steering, especially for Mario Kart users who prefer to stick their WiiMotes in the plastic steering wheel for a more comfortable feel when they play. The added driving modes, like driving up the wall and ramping so high that you deploy a hang glider, all feel like natural additions to the game. Mario Kart fans have a lot to be excited about here.If you were a fan of the original The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, you’re really going to enjoy this HD remake. It’s not enough to make you buy a Wii U if you don’t already have one, but it looks very nice and was very comfortable to play on the Gamepad.The controls are always available on screen, while the display on the controller gives you a look at things like inventory and occasionally just a textured background with red text that says “look at the TV”. For the actual gameplay, it feels very much like the original Wind Waker. This isn’t as cool as, say, an actual new Zelda title, but the combination of nostalgia and desire to see this game in HD will likely be enough to drive both new and old fans to pick it up.The big question is whether or not Nintendo’s strategy worked. At the Best Buy I went to, there was quite the crowd. It was clear that the staff was not anticipating a crowd this size, and many people were willing to stand in line for hours just to get a few minutes with these games. I didn’t see anyone walking out of the store with a Wii U, however, and people walking around the store who didn’t already know about the event didn’t see any reason to hang around and ask questions or learn about the console itself.

Stay on target Hands-On: ‘Stranded Sails’ Is a Relaxing Farm Sim AdventureHere’s an Hour of Incomprehensible ‘Death Stranding’ Gameplay June and July didn’t exactly have an abundance of new games to try out. Most were either collections or remasters. Though the same is somewhat true in August, the sheer number of titles dropping is impressive.The list below highlights the biggest releases of the month. If you’re looking for something to play before Spider-Man arrives next month, you have plenty to choose from.Monster Hunter: WorldPlatforms: PCRelease date: August 09After missing out for the majority of 2018, PC users will finally get to play Monster Hunter: World. As expected, this version features support for higher resolution graphics and frame rates. Users will get all of the currently available content completely for free. They’ll also get any and all upcoming updates.One interesting thing to note is that Monster Hunter: World on PC will have a different Event Quest schedule than on consoles. Other than that, this is the same great Monster Hunter: World experience console gamers have enjoyed. PC users are in for a treat.You can pre-order Monster Hunter: World for PC on Amazon.Monster Hunter Generations UltimatePlatforms: SwitchRelease date: August 28Nintendo Switch players also missed out on Monster Hunter: World. Though MHW isn’t coming to Switch, users on Nintendo’s platform can instead enjoy Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. This is basically an upgraded version of Monster Hunter Generations from the 3DS. Expect all of the 3DS content plus new monsters, hunting styles, and G rank quests.One cool thing about this version is that 3DS owners can transfer their Generations save data to Switch. I wish this was possible between the console and PC version of Monster Hunter: World. The question is: will players who’ve enjoyed MHW go and try out this throwback Monster Hunter game? Speaking for myself, I’m not sure if I can go back to play old-school Monster Hunter. MHW is, after all, the Monster Hunter game I’ve always wanted.You can pre-order Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on Amazon.Yakuza Kiwami 2Platforms: PlayStation 4Release date: August 28Westerners have enjoyed a flood of Yakuza releases this generation thanks to Sega bringing over previously Japanese-only games. The latest entry heading to our shores is Yakuza Kiwami 2. Like last year’s Yakuza Kiwami, this entry is a remake of the original. It takes the basic story of the PlayStation 2 Yakuza 2 but brings it to life with new graphics, side quests, plot lines, and more. Also like Kiwami (and Yakuza 0), it borrows mechanics from later installments and also clears up some confusing narrative points.If you’ve already played Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami, getting Kiwami 2 is a no-brainer. It also prepares you for the upcoming Yakuza 3 through 5 remasters, which in turn sets you up for the already releasedYakuza 6. That’s a whole lot of Japanese criminal underworld action right there!You can pre-order Yakuza Kiwami 2 on Amazon.Yakuza 0Platforms: PCRelease date: August 1Speaking about Yakuza, the franchise makes its PC debut this month with Yakuza 0. This title is the perfect entry point for new Yakuza players since it establishes the characters and plot lines of the entire franchise. Because it’s on PC, the game contains 4K textures and uncapped frame rates. Given how much fighting one has to do in Yakuza 0, higher frame rates will definitely help players out during brawls.I had a great deal of fun with Yakuza 0 last year so I’m happy to see PC players get their hands on it at last. Hopefully, the game will do well enough so that Sega brings the entire franchise over to PC. This is a must-play series as far as I’m concerned.You can buy Yakuza 0 on Amazon.Shenmue I & II HDPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: August 21It’s fitting that a month which sees the release of two Yakuza games also has that franchise’s spiritual predecessor coming out. I’m of course talking about Shenmue I & II HD. While the two series are tonaly different, they share many of the same mechanics. This includes fighting random thugs on the streets and wasting time away at arcades. The Shenmue re-releases prepare players for the upcoming Shenmue III.From what I understand, this remaster isn’t much of a remaster. The graphics have not gotten much of an overhaul. Players can choose between modern and classic controls and between English and Japanese voiceovers. The game also sports an updated user interface and scalable resolution. I’m interested in seeing how modern audiences who’ve never played Shenmue will react to these classics. Hell, I’m interested to see how I feel about the games after all these years.You can pre-order Shenmue I & II HD on Amazon.WarioWare GoldPlatforms: 3DSRelease date: August 03WarioWare Gold is further proof that the 3DS isn’t going away anytime soon. As with other entries in the series, WarioWare Gold features hundreds of mini games one can complete in a couple of seconds. Users must use the 3DS’ buttons, tilt functionality, touch pad, and even microphone in order to play. This is certainly a game you don’t want to play in public unless you want to look like a crazy person.While it’s nice to get a new WarioWare game, I have to ask the obvious question: why isn’t this on Nintendo Switch? Yes, I realize there are still millions of 3DS owners out there, but come on! The fact Switch isn’t getting WarioWare Gold is every bit as insane to me as the system not getting Samus Returns. Hopefully, a WarioWare title will make its way to Switch in the future. With its Joy-con controllers, the Switch can certainly provide some memorable WarioWare experiences.You can buy WarioWare Gold on Amazon.World of Warcraft: Battle for AzerothPlatforms: PCRelease date: August 14Believe it or not, people still play World of Warcraft in 2018. It’s amazing to see this long-running MMORPG continue to thrive. While it’s no longer the powerhouse it used to be, it’s still one of the most played games on PC. Seeing as how it popularized MMOs as we know them today, it shouldn’t be surprising Blizzard’s hit game is still going strong.Battle for Azeroth is the seventh expansion to World of Warcraft. It raises to level cap to 120, introduces new continents, raids, dungeons, and a whole lot more. Players can actually play a new questline in the current game which sets up the expansion. I’ve never gotten into World of Warcraft and I’m still not exactly interested in investing my life into it. For those who have and continue to enjoy this game, I say more power to you!You can pre-order World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth on Amazon.The Walking Dead: The Final Season Ep. 1Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: August 14Telltale’s The Walking Dead is easily the company’s most popular franchise. Because of that, it’s interesting to see it (potentially) end the series with this installment. This final season brings the tale of protagonist Clementine to a close. You can expect a lot of drama involving humans doing messed up stuff to one another in order to survive in a zombie-filled world.Considering the state of the franchise as a whole, it’s no surprise to see Telltale’s wrapping up its The Walking Dead games. The once dominant franchise has fallen out of favor both in the comics and TV world (especially the latter). The video games have shared a similar fate, though we can also attribute some of this to the aging engine Telltale uses for its titles. Personally, I checked out after season two and don’t much care about coming back to see what happens to Clementine. But if you’re still invested, I hope Telltale delivers a worthy ending.You can pre-order The Walking Dead: The Final Season Ep. 1 on Steam, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live.We Happy FewPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: August 10We Happy Few is the game everyone got mad at because it wasn’t the BioShock spiritual successor they expected. The amusing part about this is how folks made that assumption based on the debut trailer shown at E3 a few years back. To me, it looked nothing like BioShock but for whatever reason, a lot of people thought it did. What’s that saying about making assumptions… ?Anyway, We Happy Few has been in early access on Steam for a long time but it’s finally coming out as a full game. Taking place in an alternate dystopian 1960’s England, the game has an art-style all its own. It truly is one of the most visually interesting titles coming out this month. The only possible drawback here is that it is a survival game. You may not have time to enjoy the sights when you’re scrounging around for materials to keep yourself alive. But it looks pretty, and that may be enough for some people.You can pre-order We Happy Few on Amazon.Dead CellsPlatforms: PS4, Switch, Xbox OneRelease date: August 07We’ve talked about console games finally coming to PC so let’s flip the script and talk about PC games coming to consoles. Dead Cells is a 2D action platformer that combines mechanics from Roguelikes, Metroidvania games, and Dark Souls. This means permadeath, a hugely interconnected world, and brutally difficult combat.Though I am becoming somewhat tired of every other indie game jumping on the Roguelike/Metroidvania/Dark Souls bandwagon, I have to say Dead Cells looks appealing. I think it’s the gorgeous art-style that gets me. It looks so good! However, the whole permadeath thing doesn’t sound like fun. That’s the main reason I don’t partake in Roguelikes. Yeah, permadeath may appeal to some, but it’s not my thing. Still, there has to be one Roguelike out there for me and Dead Cells may be it.You can pre-order Dead Cells on Amazon.Divinity: Original Sin 2Platforms: PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: August 31Divinity: Original Sin 2 is another PC game making its way to consoles. For those who may not know, Divinity: Original Sin is one of the most critically acclaimed RPGs of the modern era. The games masterfully capture the feel of classic computer RPGs but updated for modern audiences. Those looking for a pure and satisfying RPG experience need look no further than this franchise.Divinity: Original Sin 2 for consoles sports a number of new features. One is a tutorial mode that shows new players the ropes. There is also an easier “Story Mode” for those who want to enjoy the game’s narrative without worrying about falling in battle. Players can resurrect party members as many times as they wish in this mode. The game’s third act has gotten an overhaul and now features new dialogue, NPCs, quests, and more. If you’ve yet to play a game in the franchise, you should totally try out Divinity: Original Sin 2.You can pre-order Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Amazon.Madden NFL 19Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: August 10Football season is almost upon us, which means it’s time for EA to drop a new Madden NFL. If you’re a veteran, then you know to expect some minor updates. This particular entry features improved sweat and better animations for the players. It also has new features for Ultimate Team and Franchise modes.The most noteworthy thing about Madden NFL 19 is that is it releasing on PC. This is something that hasn’t happened in over a decade. Madden NFL is easily one of the biggest gaming franchises on console. It’ll be interesting to see if it enjoys the same type of success on PC.You can pre-order Madden NFL 19 on Amazon.

Salman Khan to host Bigg Boss 13.ColorsWith less than two months remaining for Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 13 to go on air, speculations regarding the list of contestants have intensified. Even as ardent viewers eagerly wait for the makers to unveil the final list of participants, International Business Times, India, has exclusively learnt seven names who have been finalised to enter the madhouse.A source close to the development has exclusively revealed that these seven contestants have signed their contract.Take a look at the seven final contestants of Bigg Boss 13:1) Mugdha Godse: The former model was the semi-finalist at the Femina Miss India 2004. Although she did not gain success as an actor, she is still remembered for her role in Priyanka Chopra starrer Fashion. Mugdha made a buzz when her boyfriend Rahul Dev participated in Bigg Boss 10.2) Mahika Sharma: A former model and TV actress, Mahika gained popularity for her controversial comments. She also made news for her relationship with British adult film star Danny D. Apparently, Mahika and Danny were supposed to participate in the previous season of Bigg Boss but the couple had opted out after learning that commoners were also part of the show. Mahika Sharma; Mugdha GodseTwitter/Instagram3) Siddharth Shukla: The hunk rose to fame with TV show Balika Vadhu, post which he made Bollywood debut with Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt’s Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Last seen on Dil Se Dil Tak, the actor had created a buzz after he was arrested for rash driving in 2018. Despite his good looks, physique and acting chops, Siddharth is not quite a favourite among producers and co-actors apparently because of his temperamental issues. 4) Chunkey Pandey: A happy soul, Chunkey, is popular among youth for his roles in the Housefull series. Chunkey was a star during the late 1980s and early ’90s and has acted in over 80 movies in his career spanning across three decades. He is also among Salman’s favourites and fans can expect some funny banter between the two on the show.5) Devoleena Bhattacharjee: Devoleena became a household name as Gopi Bahu from popular TV show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya. Although it was earlier said that the actress opted out of Bigg Boss 13 as she bagged a Bollywood project opposite Rajkummar Rao, our source said that Devoleena is very much part of the Salman Khan show. Devoleena Bhattacharjeeinstagram6) Rajpal Yadav: For the fans of Bollywood, Rajpal Yadav needs no introduction. The actor is known for his comic timings and acting chops. He made news for serving jail term over non-payment of loan and given the format of the show, the comedian-actor would be a perfect personality to be locked inside the madhouse.7) Aditya Narayan: Singer Udit Narayan’s son Aditya has hosted many singing reality shows and will now be seen in the controversial show. He was the first runners up in stunt-based reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, which concluded early this year. In 2018, the singer was in news for the wrong reason when he was arrested after ramming his posh car into an auto-rickshaw and seriously injuring two people. It is believed that Aditya shares a good relationship with Colors and is cast by channel and not the production house.
A high alert was sounded in India’s Jammu on Monday after alleged terrorists killed three labourers of the General Reserve Engineer Force (GREF) near the international border (IB).The ‘terrorists’ had attacked a GREF camp around 2:00am in Battal area in Akhnoor sector of the IB, a police officer said.“Three labourers working for GREF were killed in the terror attack,” he added.Reports from the area said the ‘terrorists’, whose exact number was not known, managed to escape after the attack.Indian police have started searching inside and around the camp, he added.However, the attackers were yet to be traced, he said.High alert was sounded in Jammu district in general and in Khour tehsil in particular.The GREF is the parent cadre force of the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) that builds and maintains border roads in the country.This was the first terror attack in Jammu in 2017.The last terror attack took place on 29 November, 2016 when terrorists wearing police uniforms attacked an army camp in Nagrota area of Jammu.Seven soldiers, including two officers, were killed in Nagrota terror attack.The ‘terrorists’ had also attacked a Border Security Force camp in Samba district the same day.
Maryland Sen. Nathaniel T. Oaks, a veteran of Baltimore City politics since the 1980’s was charged in federal court today with honest services wire fraud, for allegedly accepting illegal payments in exchange for using his official position to benefit an individual (who was actually an FBI operative) on a business deal, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.In this Feb. 6, 2009 photo, Maryland Del. Nathaniel T. Oaks, , Democrat, District 41, Baltimore City, glances toward fellow delegates as he questions then Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon during a hearing in the House of Delegates, Baltimore Delegation, in Annapolis, Md. Oaks, who used the word “lollipop” as a code word for every $1,000 he expected to be paid has been charged with accepting illegal payments in exchange for using his position to facilitate business deals, the U.S attorney’s office announced Friday, April 7, 2017. (Glenn Fawcett /The Baltimore Sun via AP)Oaks, 70, who was recently appointed to the Maryland Senate in February representing the 41st Legislative District of West Baltimore, replaced former Senator Lisa Gladden, who stepped down for health reasons. Oaks had previously served in the House of Delegates since 1983, also representing the 41st District.Oaks first appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark J. Coulson in U.S. District Court in Baltimore Friday (April 7) afternoon. According to the affidavit, an individual cooperating with the FBI, introduced Oaks to an FBI operative posing as an out of town business person interested in obtaining contracts, through an actual minority owned business in Baltimore City, on September 21, 2015. The business owner is another defendant who is cooperating with the FBI in the investigation that led to Oaks being charged, according to the U.S. Attorney. The initial meeting took place at a restaurant in Pikesville, in Baltimore County. According to the U.S. Attorney, in the months after the first meeting, Oaks was recorded during several telephone and in-person conversations discussing numerous business opportunities in Maryland. According to the affidavit one of the opportunities involved a project with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to be developed in Baltimore. According to the U.S. Attorney, the FBI operative offered to pay Oaks for his assistance on the project on March 16, 2016 and in the Spring and Summer of 2016, Oaks sent two letters on his official letterhead from the House of Delegates in support of the HUD project. Oaks was subsequently paid $10,300 by the FBI operative for his assistance. In addition, Oaks was paid $5,000 more on September 22, 2016 in exchange for Oaks filing a bond bill with the Maryland Department of Legislative Services, requesting $250,000 for the HUD project.Oaks has served two terms in the House of Delegates after his election in 1983, when in 1989 he was convicted of stealing more than $10,000 from his re-election fund, perjury and misconduct in office. He was given a five year suspended sentence and ordered to perform 500 hours of community service. Oaks was nevertheless re-elected to the House of Delegates in 1994.If convicted of the current charge of honest wire fraud, Oaks faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) noted that this proposed decision is consistent with request made by the ACR and the Society of Nuclear Medicine in a joint letter sent to CMS in July 2009. ACR believes that this coverage proposal is in the best interest of the PET community, and asked CMS to reconsider Section 220.6 of the National Coverage Determinations Manual to end the prospective data collection requirements for FDG-PET for initial staging of cervical cancer. CMS proposes that the evidence is adequate to determine that the results of FDG-PET imaging for cervical cancer staging of beneficiaries diagnosed with cervical cancer are used by the treating physician to make meaningful changes in therapeutic management and improve health outcomes, and thus are reasonable and necessary. Therefore, CMS proposes to cover only one FDG PET for staging in beneficiaries who have biopsy proven cervical cancer when the beneficiary’s treating physician determines that the FDG PET study is needed to determine the location and/or extent of the tumor for the following therapeutic purposes related to the initial treatment strategy:- To determine whether or not the beneficiary is an appropriate candidate for an invasive diagnostic or therapeutic procedure; or- To determine the optimal anatomic location for an invasive procedure; or- To determine the anatomic extent of tumor when the recommended anti-tumor treatment reasonably depends on the extent of the tumor.The ACR, SNM, and others also noted that “CMS may find it appropriate to exclude coverage for diagnosis of cervical cancer since this disorder is initially diagnosed by biopsy.” CMS reportedly agrees and proposes that there is no credible evidence that the results of FDG-PET imaging are useful to make the initial diagnosis of cervical cancer.CMS is soliciting public comments on this proposed decision pursuant to §1862(l) of the Social Security Act. The public comment period is open until Sept. 14, 2009.For more information: www.acr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of MR Solutions.

Amadeus says data analytics can solve airline disruptionsTechnology and big data are rapidly changing the travel experience. Travel is no longer about simply moving between locations or organising trips. Travel is now about building a 360-degree view of travellers and using that to create unique and memorable experiences tailored to their individual stated needs and preferences.Every step in a traveller’s journey – from searching for a timetable or checking in to a hotel – creates data. This data, if picked up from hundreds of points across the travel network, presents a valuable opportunity for travel companies to transform it into meaningful information to facilitate strategic, tactical and operational decisions, ultimately to the benefit of the traveller.Today, not only do travel players have unprecedented volumes of data to work with, but computing power is increasing exponentially, giving them the ability to unlock the benefits of analytics and automation.Defining the future of travel through intelligence, a new discussion paper from Amadeus Travel Intelligence, outlines how data analytics can be used to develop innovative products, services, and processes that better meet the needs of their customers. It explains that travel companies must be open to experimentation, new ideas and new approaches.The paper includes case studies of how Qantas and Avianca Brasil are using data analytics supported by Amadeus Travel Intelligence to optimise operations and become more customer-centric: Qantas reduced the number of flights that would have been reported as late by 60% using Amadeus Schedule Recovery, while Avianca Brasil has been able to centralise information and make better informed business decisions.“The companies that are more likely to succeed in the future travel industry will be those that embrace big data and experimentation. They’ll try out new ideas and approaches to increase their operational efficiency and enhance the customer experience – and benefit from new revenues and increased loyalty. This paper explores both what can be done today, and how travel companies can best prepare themselves for the future,” says Pascal Clement, Head of Travel Intelligence at Amadeus IT Group.

Bunnik Tours recently hosted a famil to Sri Lanka with the group of 16 travel professionals spending seven days exploring the country the ‘Bunnik Way’. Beginning in Negombo, the group climbed Sigiriya, also known as ‘Lion Rock’, and also made a visit to the Minneriya National Park for an elephant safari by jeep. @ Sigiriya RockEn route to Kandy they stopped at a local village to learn some of the many ways the resourceful locals use coconuts – from extracting the coconut water and flesh, to making ropes from the husks – and enjoyed facials and massages at a spice plantation in Matale.A city tour in Kandy, traditional dances and beautiful Sri Lankan cuisine, was followed by the final destination, Colombo, exploring Gangarama Temple and toasting a fantastic week with a Farewell Dinner. agentsBunnik ToursfamilSri Lanka
Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Darnell Dockett’s 2012 season has probably not gone according to plan. The 31-year-old has just 34 tackles and 1.5 sacks, failing to make an impact in many games.Oh, and there was that whole dust-up with Kerry Rhodes at the end of the New York Jets game, which led to the defensive lineman sustaining a hefty fine. Well, with one game left to play, Dockett took to his twitter page to tell the world his thoughts on the regular season coming to a close. “Damn I’m glad this season is damn near over! I wanna hit the reset button like on madden and start over…..[profanity]”Dockett has appeared to be unhappy with head coach Ken Whisenhunt as well as the situation the team finds itself in, especially with his side of the ball playing well while the offense is barely functional most games.And not unlike many of the team’s fans, Dockett is looking forward to turning the page on 2012 with hopes of a better future.

In the late stages of a Week 15, division-clinching win over the Philadelphia Eagles last December, Palmer hit his finger on the helmet of a defender while delivering a pass. The rest of the season, the quarterback had his right finger heavily bandaged and denied that the injury was affecting his play. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires – / 22 Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore (24) runs with the ball after intercepting Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) during the second half of an NFL football game on Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016, in Orchard Park, N.Y. (AP Photo/Jeffrey T. Barnes) CompletionsAttemptsYardsTDINTComp %QB RatingRecord There is not a more scrutinized player on the Arizona Cardinals’ roster than Carson Palmer.As the quarterback, he basks in the glory of wins and has his performance raked over the coals after a loss.It’s undeniable that Palmer has provided some of the best quarterback play in the long history of the Cardinals franchise. It’s also undeniable that his last seven games have left a lot to be desired.Sunday’s 33-18 loss to the Buffalo Bills was the latest head-scratching performance by the 36-year-old. Plagued by inaccuracy and communication issues with receivers, Palmer completed 26-of-50 passes for 287 yards and four interceptions — all coming in the final 6:40 of the fourth quarter when the Cardinals were attempting to climb back into the game. 1272231,575101156.9573.83-4 The fact of the matter is, he hasn’t been the same quarterback since. In the seven games since that night in Philly, Palmer’s numbers don’t look like they belong to one of the elite quarterbacks in the league. 6721,0428,701612264.49101.326-4 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact That’s right, the Cardinals have lost as many games in Palmer’s last seven starts as they did in his previous 30.Even people who claimed Palmer’s finger was the culprit for lackluster play late last season can’t claim that now, as it’s been nine months since it happened.There are plenty of players responsible for the Cardinals’ disappointing 1-2 start to the 2016 season. Carson Palmer is near the top of the list.If he can find the chemistry with his receivers that has been present for most of his time in Arizona, the Cardinals will be fine. If not, this season will go down as one of the most disappointing in this sport market’s history. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “Disappointed in the way we played, disappointed in myself and the way I played,” Palmer said following Sunday’s loss. “But there’s a lot of football left, there’s 13 games left. We have a big division game at our house next week, so we need to find a way to improve and if there’s one thing this team does, it’s work hard.We’re going to get back to the grindstone and we’re going to pound it out, figure out ways to improve and get ready for a good football team coming to our place.”You can make a very compelling argument that Palmer was one of the best quarterbacks in football over a 30-game stretch from October of 2013 to last December. Of course, that time was punctuated by a torn ACL that wiped out a good chunk of the 2014 season and derailed the Cardinals’ playoff hopes. But even after returning, Palmer was sharp and effective.

TEMPE, Ariz. — Cardale Jones. Taysom Hill. Cooper Rush.Those are the starting quarterbacks the Arizona Cardinals have faced in three preseason games so far. Next up: Chad Kelly.Arizona head coach Steve Wilks hasn’t seemed to care who the competition is thus far. He remains pleased that his Cardinals have pressed those quarterbacks and their backups into six interceptions. And Wilks is plenty content that Arizona has created an additional 10 turnovers for a 16-to-1 turnover ratio with a preseason finale against the Denver Broncos looming Thursday. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires There’s no asterisk over that number at Cardinals headquarters.“I think it’s really the standard that’s what we’ve set,” Wilks said when asked if he puts much weight into those preseason figures. “It’s what we’re emphasizing, it’s what we teach and what we preach as coaches. Taking the ball away, we create drills for that.
