LISTEN: Bruce Arians, Former Cardinals’ Head Coach When it comes down to whether or not Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald retires, former head coach Bruce Arians gave his two cents Friday.“I truly believe he would like to play in the right system, and everything that falls right, I think he’d like to play one more year and come back one more year and come in second,” Arians said on the Burns & Gambo Show on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.

(AP Photo/Matt York) 1 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo It wouldn’t come as much of a shock should he decide to stay for another season given his 2017 campaign.Last season, he reeled in 109 receptions, tying his career-high he set in 2015, for 1,156 yards and six touchdowns. He also had his first pass completion when he connected with fellow receiver Jaron Brown for 21 yards.If Fitzgerald were to stay, he would have a legitimate shot at passing Terrell Owens at 15,934 yards for second on the all-time receiving yards list. Fitzgerald is currently at 15,545. He could also make a run at former NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez at 1,325, for the No. 2 spot on the all-time receptions list. At 1,234, Fitzgerald needs 92 to pass him — a number he’s surpassed seven times in his career.But his on-the-field performance isn’t the only thing that gives Fitzgerald his All-Pro demeanor, according to Arians.“You can never talk about Larry until you talk about the person, what he means to the organization,” Arians said. “Being able to have him as a leader on how to do everything right in your life as a player and then play hard, practice hard, all those things, that all comes second.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories last_img read more

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) 23 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Even with the Arizona Cardinals adding new faces to the trenches, one website is projecting the offensive line close to the bottom of the NFL barrel.Using factors such as past performance grades, college evaluations and age projections, Pro Football Focus compiled a preseason offensive line ranking, and the Cardinals’ projected lineup of A.Q. Shipley, Mike Iupati, D.J. Humphries, Justin Pugh and Andre Smith ranked 27th. Top Stories center_img Partially because of injuries, Arizona had 217 pressures surrendered with seven different linemen allowing two or more sacks, according to PFF.Pair that with losing starting running back David Johnson and the cards were really stacked against the O-line.Looking at the NFC West as a whole, PFF ranked the Los Angeles Rams’ offensive front at No. 10, the San Francisco 49ers 16th and the Seattle Seahawks 30th.The Philadelphia Eagles took home the top spot in the NFL with tackle Jason Peters and center Jason Kelce highlighting the group, while the Houston Texans held down the No. 32 spot for a second year straight.Below are the grades for each projected starter: – / 5 While the line has a different look in 2018, one of the biggest reasons for the low rank might come as little surprise to anyone familiar with the team.This group will look much different than the 2017 version – which can’t be a bad thing. The only problem is that this group – more than maybe any other in the NFL – has serious injury concerns. Almost every starter has missed significant time in each of the past two seasons and the Cardinals don’t exactly have quality depth to make up for it. If Mike Iupati, Justin Pugh and Andre Smith all return back to their career-best form, this could be a top-10 group. The odds of that happening, or even them playing all 16 games, seems incredibly slim after all the injuries they’ve suffered.Out of the linemen only Shipley managed to make it a full 16 games in 2017. Iupati (one game played), Pugh (eight), Humphries (five) and Smith (13) all missed multiple games last year.While the ranking is less than ideal, the moves the team made in the offseason did move the needle slightly from last season.Related LinksReturning from knee injury, Cardinals’ D.J.

1 What do you do at Skyscanner Im a Databa

first_img**1. What do you do at Skyscanner?**I’m a ‘Database Developer’ for the company – helping organize all the information Skyscanner receives from the outside world: flight prices, airline route information, and more – and making it available to users quickly and reliably.2. What kind of flight geek are you?Definitely and shamelessly a technology geek. A few years ago, I ‘modified’ a game console of mine to stream films from my computer to the TV over a wireless network. I like pushing the capabilities of the devices I own.3. What best generally describes your travel style?I’ll fly anywhere if the price is right. A couple of years ago, a friend and I stumbled across a five-star hotel in Boston which was desperate to fill rooms. Neither of us had been to Boston before, but the flight + accommodation packages available were at such a huge discount, we grabbed the tickets within a few minutes of seeing them.4. What’s your ideal holiday?Somewhere warm, with plenty of things to see and bars/restaurants to check out. Having friends around also makes a big difference as it’s always good to pick up some genuine local tips and recommendations!5. Who’s your ideal travel companion?A friend, or friends plural if that’s an option! For long flights, someone to play chess with would be good too, although last time I flew transatlantic, there weren’t any travel chess boards on sale in any of the connecting airports…bizarre.6. Do you fly with children?I don’t have kids, so none of my own at least!7. How do you decide where you want to go?Spur-of-the-moment trips aside, I usually have a pretty good idea about where I’d like to go a few months in advance. Often it’s to visit friends somewhere, or for an event/concert/festival.Add in a bit of local research – chatting to folks, reading a few websites – and I’ve got a trip.8. How do you decide when you want to go?It’s a bit of a mixed bag. If there’s a specific event to catch, then that can tie down the travel dates but generally I’ll have a bit of a hunt around and see if there are any off-season opportunities. It can make a huge difference to flight and hotel prices.9. What annoys you most about planning holidays?All the cross-referencing and double-checking that has to be done. I’m fussy about the details and like to make sure that trips are going to be comfortable, at sensible hours, and competitively priced.Although I’m generally happy with the end results, it often means spending far too much time flicking between web pages, maps, and all kinds of other reference material.10. What are you doing in your job at Skyscanner to help?At the moment I’m working with some of our route management technology, to make sure that we can continually improve our flight coverage worldwide. The more ticket options we can show, the more likely people are to find the travel options to suit them, at the best price available.Longer-term, I’m doing my best to ensure that we can collect and present as much flight and travel related information as possible. There’s a balance to find between displaying ‘too much’ information, and oversimplifying the information that’s out there.11. What’s your favourite thing about the Skyscanner site?An old favourite, and with good reason, it has to be our flexible search options. If I want to go to somewhere in the USA this summer, but I don’t care when or where – Skyscanner can show what’s available and for how much. It’s a fantastic way to get ideas for a trip.12. What’s your dream feature?Film festival integration – a way to view the films showing at film festivals across the world on a calendar, with travel prices to catch all the best features. For budget reasons I stick with the number 22 bus to local cinemas at the moment, but I can dream!13. Favourite websites apart from Skyscanner (not necessarily travel) and why?The Internet Movie Database is brilliant – although I wonder if it would benefit from a bit of a design overhaul. Impressively, you can still download the entire content of their ratings/films/credits database for free.14. What’s the geekiest thing about you? Your secret geek shame?When travelling to Spain to visit friends last year, I wrote a database query taking our calendars into account, to work out the best time to visit. That’s probably not even the geekiest thing I’ve done.15. Worst travel experience?Staying in a budget chain hotel in a fairly rough part of urban Los Angeles; no harm encountered, but not exactly the most relaxing atmosphere, and made Hollywood seem even more distant from reality. First time I’d come across bullet-proof glass at the counter in a fast food restaurant!Meet more Flight Search GeeksReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Introducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner work RelatedFlight Geek of the Week – Dario Villanueva-AblanedoIntroducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner workFlight Geek of the Week: Benjamín Pérez UleciaFlight Geek of the Week: Benjamín Pérez UleciaFlight Geek of the Week – Laura WilsonFlight Geek of the Week – Laura Wilsonlast_img read more

Australia takes top award whilst France loses its

first_imgAustralia takes top award whilst France loses its ‘joie de vivre’ as Italy comes number one for romance, cuisine and culture With Australians around the world celebrating Australia day today, it couldn’t be a better time for the ‘Land Down Under’ to have been crowned ‘most desired’ destination in Skyscanner’s Travel Awards. Skyscanner users have voted Australia the place they would most like to visit if money were no object.The opinions of more than 600 travellers were collected by the flights comparison site Skyscanner.net, which also found that the love affair with France seems to be over as Italy snatched some of the top awards from France’s grasp.When it comes to love, many think of Paris as being the place to go for romance, but with Rome, Venice and Lake Como on its side, Italy clearly outshone its neighbour in the awards, winning the title of ‘Most Romantic Country’, with 33% of the votes to France’s 19%. Culture vultures also favoured Italy; despite France being home to some of the world’s most famous museums and art galleries, Italy was awarded best destination for culture. Italy also trumped France when it came to food even though France is home to twice as many Michelin starred restaurants as Italy.The Caribbean won awards for most spectacular beaches and the most relaxing destination.The USA and Australia were considered to have the friendliest locals, with both nations receiving 10% of the vote, but the legendary hospitality of the Irish meant that the Emerald Isle was hot on their heels in third place. In comparison, the UK only ranked 12th, whilst the French lagged behind in 23rd position.Spain was voted best for nightlife and most family friendly destination, showing it can cater to both crowds. With cities like Barcelona and Madrid renowned for their after dark entertainment, as well as many lively and family orientated resorts along the Costa del Sol, the country remains the most popular holiday destination for British tourists.Yara Paoli, Skyscanner Italian country expert commented:“Italy is a very popular destination for British tourists and it’s great to see Italy being recognised for what it can offer; excellent cuisine, romantic cities and a host of great cultural attractions.”Rodney Harrex, General Manager UK/Europe Tourism Australia commented:“Australia’s weird and wonderful wildlife, diverse experiences, friendly locals and laidback lifestyle attract visitors from all over the world. 2011 has got off to a strong start in terms of arrivals and we look forward to welcoming many more holidaymakers over the coming months.”—Skyscanner 2011 Travel Awards WinnersIf money was no object, where would you most like to go?

The concept of 40before30 is selfexplanatory It

first_imgThe concept of 40before30 is self-explanatory. It’s the blog of Travel Blogger of the Year Jayne Gorman, who is trying to blog about 40 countries before she’s 30.Starting out less than two years ago, 20-something Jayne totted up that she had visited 30 countries and wanted to tick off the further 10 required to take her tally to 40, before she was 30. As she ‘fell more in love with blogging’, she then decided that ‘a stamp in a passport from the late 80s’ wasn’t enough and so she’d visit and blog about 40 countries anew. So far she has blogged about 26.Jayne’s engaging and entertaining blog will appeal to round-the-world gappers and city break weekenders alike. The look is low-key and the pages aren’t dripping with National Geographic-quality images, but that suits the blog’s style. Like her writing, Jayne’s holiday snaps tell it like it is for the likes of you and me. As well as her traveller’s tales, she provides useful advice, from parking at airports on a budget to what not to do at Full Moon parties!The blog’s appeal lies in Jayne’s unassuming girl-next-door likeability. Whereas some bloggers intimidate with their ‘I’ve travelled the world… what, you’ve only been to Majorca?’ elitism, Jayne posts articles like ‘Why I am too scared to CouchSurf’ and giddily recounts her first experience of a business class lounge. Her writing is page-turningly engaging and most importantly, funny – usually as she recounts her latest mishap, for instance: ‘I was working on an event in South Africa and my clothes fell off’. You really do wish her well.Follow Jayne’s quest to visit 40 countries, and avoid ‘international embarrassment’, at 40before30What’s your favourite travel blog?
