NorthEast Another Kashmir

first_imgMany fear that another Kashmir is in the making in North-East (NE) India. In the last few years, a series of disturbing developments in NE have created a genuine apprehension in the minds of citizens and political analysts about the future of this resource-rich region. Through the division of Bengal in 1947, India has created a landlocked, fertile, region in the northeastern part of the country, surrounded by five foreign nations – China, Myanmar, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Nepal. NE’s only physical contact with the mainland is through the Siliguri corridor, often termed as ‘chicken neck’. This lack of connectivity has further crippled the region’s economy, making it entirely dependent on others, even for basic necessities. Historical blunder On August 15, 1947, two Indian states were divided. Quite some time before the Muslim League demanded the partition of India on religious lines, Bengal-based industrialist G D Birla, had plead for it. On January 11, 1938, he wrote to Mahadev Desai, Gandhi’s secretary: “I wonder why it should not be possible to have two Federations, one of Muslims and another of Hindus……if anything is going to check our progress, it is the Hindu-Muslim question – not the Englishman, but our own internal quarrels.” Not only did Birla try to persuade Gandhi todivide India on communal lines as early as in January 1938 but he also approached Viceroy Linlithgow with the same proposal in the same month. Accordingly, Punjab and Bengal were divided in 1947 and millions of people were uprooted from their ancestral homes. As apprehended, the exchange of population was not peaceful – thousands were killed in communal riots. Unlike Punjab and Bengal, Muslim dominated Kashmir was not divided. But “the immediate impact (of partition) was in Jammu. Muslim subjects from different parts of Jammu province were forcibly displaced by the Dogra Army in a programme of expulsion and murder carried out over three weeks between October-November 1947”. The Muslims, who constituted more than 60 per cent of the population of Jammu region, were reduced to a minority. To quote a August 10, 1948, report published in The Times, London: “2,37,000 Muslims were systematically exterminated – unless they escaped to Pakistan along the border – by the forces of the Dogra State headed by the Maharaja in person and aided by Hindus and Sikhs. This happened in October 1947, five days before Pak invasion and nine days before the Maharaja’s accession to India.” Within hours of Kashmir’s accession to India, Pakistan Army had occupied a major portion of northern Kashmir and the state was divided into Pak Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Indian state of Kashmir. The next Kashmir There are many reasons that empower the apprehension of NE becoming Kashmir – once beloved, then torn. Like Kashmir, this region is also strategically significant to our neighbouring countries China and Myanmar. Second, Hindutva philosophy of ruling Indo-Aryan parties faces strong resistance from the Tibeto-Burmese and Austro-Asiatic tribes who dominate this region. Third, NE tribes have a long history of conflicts among themselves and with the State. In 1958, The Armed Forces (Special Power) Act (AFSPA) was enacted to empower Indian armed forces’ ‘special power’ to maintain public order in ‘disturbed areas’. Incidentally, till date, AFSPA has been executed only in the northeastern states (except Mizoram) and in Jammu & Kashmir. Fourth, lack of proper connectivity with the mainland has alienated this region from the investment radar of national and foreign capital. Human and natural resources have not been utilised to their potential. Fifth, Pakistan’s close association with China has made it a stronger enemy for India. The Delhi-Mumbai-Ahmedabad centric ruling oligarchy is looking for a softer enemy around NE to shift the war zone away from India’s power centre to the periphery. Sixth, the rise of Bangladesh as an emerging ‘Tiger’ of South-East Asia is a major blow to proponents of the religion-based Two Nations Theory. After the division of Bengal, the Muslim majority East Bengal went to Pakistan (East) while Hindu dominated West Bengal remained with India. In 1971, East Pakistan declared independence from Urdu hegemony and became Democratic Republic of Bangladesh. Since then, language, not religion, has become the principal identity of Bangladesh. Now, Bangladesh is ahead of Pakistan in almost all socioeconomic parameters. In 2017-18, it was ahead (USD 1,751) of its sister West Bengal (USD 1,500) in per capita income (in current price) and it is estimated that Bangladesh, one of the world’s most densely populated countries, will exceed India’s per capita income in the next few years. To the Hindu nationalists of India, the existence of Bangladesh as an independent thriving nation is an embarrassment. To them, Bengali refugees are like ‘termites’. And, to fight these ‘termites’, they have decided to strengthen their hold in West Bengal first. Vicious circle of poverty The division of Bengal had landlocked NE, surrounding it by five foreign countries. The umbilical cord remains the ‘chicken neck’ corridor at Siliguri. Due to lack of proper market and adequate support from the government at Delhi, the region could not utilise its huge economic potential for the benefit of its citizens. During 2000-2018, NE states could attract only 0.03 per cent of the FDI equity flow which entered India. Not only FDI, even Indian commercial banks have not extended due credit to NE people as they deserve. The credit-deposit ratio of NE has remained nearly half of the national average. Lack of funds and sustained siphoning of people’s savings and natural resources like tea, timber, oil, coal etc., to other parts of the country have resulted in a vicious circle of inadequate resources, poverty, unemployment and political unrest. Instead of breaking this vicious cycle, political leaders have tried to sustain it for their selfish interests. Possible way out NE’s policy-makers should reflect upon which side they must look at, East or West, for the long-term development of their region. Better economic and cultural engagements with Bangladesh and West Bengal are likely to offer them brighter prospects at breaking their geophysical trap and help gain access to huge global markets using the sea. Ambassador Gautam Mukhopadhaya, in his lectures ‘North East, Act East’, delivered on January 31, 2017, at Indian International Centre, Delhi, also echoed the same opinion. According to him, Assam had enjoyed one of the highest growth rates under the colonial economy built on trading tea, timber and oil with Calcutta, to which it was linked. The epicentre of growth radiated down the Bay of Bengal via ports of Calcutta, Chittagong, Akyab (Sittwe), Rangoon, Moulmein, Tavoy and Singapore. He argued that ‘if transport through old Bengal and present-day Bangladesh was crucial in the growth of the old Assamese economy, then every diplomatic effort must be made to restore such connectivity for the present day North-East.’ To the landlocked people of NE states, Bengali speaking people of Bangladesh and West Bengal are not ‘termites’ rather these people are their true friends. They are all victims of the 1947 partition of Bengal. Unless this truth is realised and internalised by today’s people, the entire region runs the risk of becoming another war zone, like Kashmir.last_img read more

Tentative contract agreement averts threatened strike by LCBO workers

TORONTO — A tentative contract agreement has been reached averting a strike by LCBO workers that was set to begin at midnight.The agreement was signed shortly after the strike deadline passed, and was announced in a release from the Ontario Public Service Employees Union.Union president Warren “Smokey” Thomas said details of the accord would not be released before union members have a chance to examine it over the next few days.A ratification vote has not yet been scheduled, but Thomas said the union’s bargaining team is unanimously recommending members accept the deal. From there, it would go to the LCBO board and the provincial government for ratification.The agreement was negotiated with the help of a mediator who imposed a media blackout on the talks.The 8,000 unionized LCBO workers have been without a contract since March 31, and voted 93 per cent in favour of a strike in April.The LCBO had extended store hours for its outlets the past couple of days to allow customers more time to stock up in case there was a job action. read more

UN health agency launches its first ever mass cholera vaccination campaign

The project is being conducted in the town of Beira, Mozambique, a community with particularly high levels of cholera, by the UN World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Health, the non-governmental Médecins sans Frontières (MSF), Epicentre and the International Vaccine Institute. While current campaigns, which focus on providing care to the sick and providing safe water, can prevent many deaths, the lack of strong preventative measures means the disease is still a major public health problem in some 50 resource-poor countries, the Geneva-based WHO said today. Though it is unlikely cholera will ever be eliminated by using traditional strategies together with vaccines, there is now greater potential to significantly decrease the disease’s incidence in high risk populations, WHO added. Many lives will certainly be saved, but perhaps even more importantly, the public health system may soon have another tool at its disposal to fight cholera. Cholera is mainly contracted through consumption of contaminated food or water and epidemics are linked to poor hygiene, overcrowding, inadequate sanitation and unsafe water. The Beira campaign will finish by the end of the month with about 50,000 people vaccinated, and the first results of this effort will be obtained within a year, WHO said. The vaccine itself has been available for 10 years, but the agency said this was the first time it had been used so broadly to minimize the devastation of a cholera outbreak. It is also the first time that WHO has considered the use of the oral cholera vaccine as part of an overall strategy. In recent years, the number of reported cholera cases worldwide has varied between 110,000 and 200,000 cases annually. Officially 5,000 deaths occur each year, but WHO estimates that the true number is probably significantly higher, due to under-reporting of cases and gaps in surveillance. read more

Short URL http://the42.ie/3873603 Follow us: the42.ie Feb 26th 2018, 7:17 PM center_img Michael O’Reilly (file pic). 23,850 Views Monday 26 Feb 2018, 7:17 PM By Paul Fennessy Share11 Tweet Email IRISH BOXER MICHAEL O’Reilly has been banned for four years from the sport, it has been confirmed, after he tested positive for methandienone.The ban is backdated to when he failed the test, which means O’Reilly will be eligible to box again after 10 July 2020.O’Reilly, who won a gold medal at the 2015 European Games in Baku, was part of the Irish team that travelled to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, but was provisionally suspended in the lead up to the event after news of his positive test was confirmed.A statement issued this evening on behalf of the Irish Athletic Boxing Association and Sport Ireland read as follows:“Sport Ireland and the Irish Athletic Boxing Association jointly confirm that the Irish Sport Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel has sanctioned Mr. Michael O’Reilly for the commission of an anti-doping rule violation. Mr. O’Reilly, an international level boxer who was part of the Irish boxing team for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, has received a period of ineligibility of 4 years for testing positive for methandienone. Mr. O’Reilly was tested on 11 July 2016. Mr. O’Reilly was notified of the positive test result on 4 August 2016 and he was provisionally suspended from 5 August 2016.“On 5 August 2016 Mr. O’Reilly informed the Irish Sport Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (the “Panel”) that he intended to appeal his provisional suspension and requested that the ‘B’ Sample be analysed. On 9 August 2016, the WADA accredited laboratory in Cologne confirmed the presence of methandienone in the ‘B’ Sample. Also on 9 August 2016, after receipt of detailed submissions from Sport Ireland regarding his appeal, Mr. O’Reilly withdrew the appeal and confirmed he was not contesting the substantive result of the tests. On the same date, through his solicitor, Mr. O’Reilly confirmed that he “freely admits that he unintentionally took a supplement that may have contained a prohibited substance”. He formally admitted the anti-doping rule violation by letter dated 23 August 2016 and indicated that he wished to engage in a consultation process with Sport Ireland.“Following correspondence between the parties Mr. O’Reilly, in written submissions to Sport Ireland, confirmed that the supplement he had taken was ‘Falcon Labs Superdrive Testobooster Tech’. Mr. O’Reilly had not disclosed at the time of the test that he had taken the supplement. Mr O’Reilly provided an opened tub of the supplement in question to Sport Ireland. Samples of the opened tub and an unopened tub of ‘Falcon Labs Superdrive Testobooster Tech’ were tested by the WADA approved laboratory in Cologne which reported that while the product contained methandienone, the concentrations were not consistent with the timeline of events asserted by Mr. O’Reilly.“Mr. O’Reilly requested a meeting with Sport Ireland when invited to comment on this and at that meeting Sport Ireland indicated that it intended to impose a sanction of 4 years. Mr. O’Reilly confirmed he did not accept this sanction and elected to refer the matter to the Panel to decide on sanction. A provisional hearing date was fixed for 11 April 2017 which was subsequently moved to the later date of 1 June 2017 at Mr. O’Reilly’s request to permit him to obtain an expert report.“A timetable for exchange of documents was agreed and, while Mr. O’Reilly filed his submissions on time, he did not file an expert report nor did he indicate that he would be calling an expert witness. Mr. O’Reilly subsequently sought additional time for filing of his report and on 30 May 2017 the Panel adjourned the hearing until 5 October 2017 for this purpose.Mr. O’Reilly produced an expert report on 22 September 2017 which Sport Ireland asserted was inadmissible due to it not being signed. On 5 October 2017, the Panel ruled that Mr. O’Reilly had until 13 October 2017 to produce a valid report and, if produced, Sport Ireland would have the opportunity to prepare its own report. The hearing was adjourned until December and, in this time, Mr. O’Reilly produced an admissible expert report with Sport Ireland commissioning its own expert report in response. The adjourned hearing therefore proceeded as scheduled on 7 December 2017.“Having considered the evidence and submissions as made, the Panel produced its detailed findings on sanction. The Panel concluded that Mr. O’Reilly had “not discharged the burden of proving that his admitted anti-doping rule violation was not intentional” and accordingly imposed a 4 year period of ineligibility on him as is required by the Irish Sports Council Anti-Doping Rules 2015 (the “Rules”). It was also not satisfied that Mr. O’Reilly’s evidence disclosed any basis to reduce or eliminate that period. The Panel however was satisfied that Mr. O’Reilly’s admission was a timely admission as understood by Article 10.7.2 the Rules and therefore concluded that it was appropriate to backdate the period of ineligibility to commence on 11 July 2016, being the date that the test was taken.“Mr. O’Reilly’s period of ineligibility will run up to and including 10 July 2020.”The42 is on Instagram!

DeLightful Christmas

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Night becomes day in the backyards of some members of our community. With an overflow of love for their children and grandchildren, thousands of lights brighten their humble garden. Iresspective of cost and effort, it’s their own way to have the spirit of Christmas in their home. Two of this Christmas gardens in Melbourne belong to members of our community – Fotis Panagiotopoulos at 42A Thomson Street in Northcote and that of Mr Christos Theodorou at 360 Porter Street in Templestowe. This year, as every other year, thousands of Victorians will visit these gardens and watch in awe and wonderment. Christos – who has been awarded for his Christmas lights – says he was bitten by the decorating bug 15 years This year, as every other year, thousands of Victorians will visit these gardens and watch in awe and wonderment; while Fotis took up the decorating caper ten years ago. Both confessed it is an incurable obsessesion. “When you see the pleasure on the faces of children when you see them look at me with eyes wide open; that spontaneous joy painted on their face, you know you have to keep doing it,” says Fotis. Even though every year he says he’s tired, the 70-year-old does it for his grandkids, and the joy he brings to other Victorian childen.For Fotis, the decorating begins on the first of November. With the lights on his back, the pensioner climbs the roof and begins the pageantary on his humble Northcote home. Nativity scenes, reindeers, Santa Claus – the whole Christmas kit and caboodle dress up the Northcote home. The wonderment he provides allows Fotis for a month to step back into childhood too. And as I sit there and see the illuminated joy on the childrens’ faces I have no doubt that Fotis is doing exactly what he should. The laughter and delight through the atmosphere he’s created with over 10,000 lights is more than just a bright glow, it’s a whole world for these kids In the ten years he’s been doing the Christmas lights, Fotis says he has been in excess of $10,000 – and says he spends at least another $500 on electricity bills around that time but he’s quick to add that it’s “totally worth it”.In another neighborhood of Melbourne in Templestowe, Christos Theodorou has created his very own Christmas pageant in his front yard. Over 25,000 lights, Chris has gone one step further and set up four computers to synchronise a musical spectacular to his lights to the suprise of thousands of visitors each year. “It’s a hobby, it’s what I enjoy doing,” says Christos.Every year, Christos sets himself the challenge of syncronising a new song for his decorations. “When I see the faces of people who come to see it I get the greatest pleasure,” he says. And, he has a donation tin for the visitors to give to the charity TLC For Kids Foundation “This for me is Christmas,” says Christos, “a celebration of love.”Over the 15 years, Christos says he has spent in excess of $50,000. It has become more than a tradition for his family. “We don’t celebrate Christmas just for the day or for the week – we celebrate Christmas for two months,” says Christos of the decked out garden. World renowned Greek composer Yianni was the song of choice for this year with Christos stating that he likes to chose Greek music for his musical extra. As I stand outside Christos’ house looking at the six metre tall Christmas tree, the thousands of lights all dancing to the musical notes of Yianni, I look down to see a little girl, no older than seven, staring in awe. I ask her what she thinks of the Christmas lights. With her eyes wide and excited she answers: “it’s like living in a fairy tale”.And with that, I realise the secret of Christmas, that has been tapped into by Fotis and Christos. They’ve created a real-life fairy tale for all to enjoy young and old. The young to seek the wonderment and beauty of human kindness and to revel in innocence and laughter. But for us all to live in a real life fairy tale – even if it’s just for a moment. To leave our worries, and our sorrows at the door and enter the world of make believe. To remember again what it’s like to be young, to be carefree and to smile. You can catch the Christmas lights every night till mid-January.last_img read more

Anchorage YWCA Works for Gender Pay Equity

first_imgThe Anchorage YWCA has taken on the topic of pay inequity for women. Nationally women make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes, but in Alaska, the rate is 67 cents, placing Alaska at 48th for women’s pay in the nation. Hilary Morgan is the CEO of Anchorage YWCA, she says when she researched the pay disparity, she thought it may be skewed due to jobs in the resource development industry that required more physical strength, so she examined industries that didn’t require brawn.YWCA Alaska Endorsement Template 2015YWCA Gender Pay Gap Initiative 2.2015Download Audiolast_img

From the motions of the wearer walking during the day, the device is capable of generating as much as 1.6 microwatts of power. This amount of energy is enough to power small electronics such as GPS devices and health monitoring equipment.

Since the knee joints are capable of a wider range of motion than most of the other human joints. Every time the wearer walks and the knee flexes, the device bends and generates electricity. It allows the harvester to capture biomechanical energy from the body’s natural motions.”These harvesters can harvest energy directly from large deformations,” study author Wei-Hsin Liao explained in a news release.Light and handy, the new energy harvester only weighs 0.68 pounds (307 grams), and it was tested on people walking 1 to 4 miles per hour (2 to 6.5 kilometers per hour).New Wearable Has Great PotentialFindings showed that the human subjects exerted no additional effort with the device, which means that the device is producing power at no cost. Low-cost, efficient, and convenient, the new wearable energy harvester has immense potential, and the researchers are planning to explore future commercialization of the technology.”Self-powered equipment can enable users to get rid of the inconvenient daily charge,” Liao pointed out. “This energy harvester would promote the development of self-powered wearable devices.”He predicted self-powered GPS devices to be popular among climbers and mountaineers, who carry these portable equipment to places with limited access to electricity and charging stations.There have been previous attempts at wearable energy harvesters, but many focused on the vibration caused by movement. However, Liao explained that the frequency of human walking is slow, which means the capability of harvesting energy is quite limited. Since the new wearable employs a different method, it doesn’t have this particular limitation.

The system uses CBCT technology to capture weight-bearing and other types of extremity exams.According to Carestream, the system is designed to allow orthopedic practices to conduct a patient consultation in a single visit. In addition, showing patients a 3-D image that illustrates their condition or injury can help them understand the reason for a treatment or surgical procedure — and accept the specialist’s recommendation. Also, capturing 3-D and weight-bearing images can be a competitive advantage for an orthopedic practice. “When this system is available, orthopedists may decide to market their practice’s ability to deliver greater patient convenience by eliminating the need to go to another facility for a 3-D imaging exam,” explained Helen Titus, Carestream’s worldwide marketing director for ultrasound and CT solutions.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Hong Kong Airlines grows network to 35 destinations and expands fleet

first_imgSource = Hong Kong Airlines Hong Kong Airlines grows network to 35 destinations and expands fleetHong Kong Airlines grows network to 35 destinations and expands fleet to 32 AircraftStepping into its 10th year since establishment, the internationally-acclaimed full service airline, Hong Kong Airlines (the “Company”) continues its rapid growth with fleet and network expansion to meet increasing travel demand. This year, Hong Kong Airlines has taken delivery of five Airbus aircraft and reaches a fleet size of 32 aircraft.The latest addition, an Airbus A330-300 wide-body, has a seating capacity of 285 passengers and 695 cubic feet of cargo. It is configured with 30 Business Class seats and 255 Economy Class seats. The Company’s 32nd aircraft is now in operation and is mainly employed on routes to Okinawa, Osaka, Tokyo, Bangkok and Denpasar. Hong Kong Airlines operates one of the youngest fleets in the world with a current average age of around 3.9 years. The modern fleet is equipped with efficient engines which can reduce noise and improve fuel consumption, thus maximizing operational performance.Hong Kong Airlines currently covers 35 flight destinations across the Asia Pacific region. The airline has planned to extend 10 new destinations within the year. After launching the Gold Coast and Cairns route early this year, the Company has further introduced 6 new destinations across four countries: Tokyo, Osaka and Okayama in Japan, Phnom Penh in Cambodia, Kuching in Malaysia and Saipan of the United States. Towards the end of the year, the Company will launch two more new routes, including the direct service to Yonago, Japan commencing on 14 September, and the service to Auckland, New Zealand which will be inaugurated on 10 November. The new long-haul route highlights Hong Kong Airlines’ expansion beyond Asia and its aims to attract travellers across the Pearl River Delta region, as befits Hong Kong’s reputation as an international transportation hub.The first half of 2016 saw Hong Kong Airlines’ passenger traffic exceeding 3 million, a 12% growth compared to last year. The average loading also rose by 1.3% to 83%. To facilitate its rapid development, Hong Kong Airlines plans to recruit around 1,000 personnel covering a wide range of job functions, including cabin crew, ground staff, pilots, flight engineers and maintenance staff.Mr. Zhang Kui, President of Hong Kong Airlines said, “In the future, Hong Kong Airlines will continue introducing more value-added services and products. With our devotion to service quality, safety standard and strengthened network, we strive to provide all passengers with more travel options and a pleasant flight experience.” Hong Kong Airlinesbook your flights hereAbout Hong Kong Airlines Established in 2006, Hong Kong Airlines is a full-service airline firmly rooted in Hong Kong with a wide destination network covering over 30 major cities across the Asia Pacific region, including Gold Coast, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Tokyo, Sapporo, Bangkok, Bali and Okinawa.

Top Stories

first_img Top Stories Kasa has immediate upside as a blocker and special teams contributor with the athleticism and size to become an effective two-way tight end.Mychal Rivera, Tennessee – 6-3, 242 lbsRivera isn’t overly athletic and isn’t consistent as a run blocker, but he runs good routes, finds ways to get open, and despite a lack of build, works hard to block in the run game.What makes Rivera such an ideal fit in the Cardinals scheme is that he is already adept at playing in a pro style offense similar to the one Arians employs.At Tennessee he was asked to run the full route tree and make plays when stretching the middle of the defense. He understands how to find the hole in the defense against zone coverage.Rivera needs to get a little bigger to be a more effective two-way tight end and needs to work on getting a push in the run game. He is an aggressive blocker, but isn’t by any means a road grader that you can run behind frequently.Lucas Reed, New Mexico – 6-6, 249 lbsReed is the younger brother of former Arizona Wildcats star Brooks Reed and is one of only a few prospects in this year’s draft that boast a combination of prototypical tight end size and strength, but also the explosiveness teams now covet out of the position. As they move through free agency and address their needs, we see the Arizona Cardinals’ draft needs come more clearly into focus.This was something I touched on Monday, but what wasn’t mentioned in those early needs was the possibility of adding a tight end in the draft.With Bruce Arians taking over the Cardinals’ offense, we will see an added focus being placed on the tight end position.In 2012, the Indianapolis Colts selected two tight ends in the first three rounds, taking Stanford’s Coby Fleener (2nd round, 34th overall) and Clemson’s Dwayne Allen (3rd round, 64th overall). The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   While the Cardinals have a good young tight end in Rob Housler, they lack the high-end options of players to line up as the second tight end in the new offense.While I think it is plausible we could see a tight end taken early, maybe Travis Kelce of Cincinnati, Rice’s Vance McDonald or Florida’s Jordan Reed in round two or three, I think the Cardinals will look to address the second tight end position on Saturday. Here are three prospects that I wouldn’t mind seeing in the desert.Nick Kasa, Colorado – 6-6, 269 lbsThe former five-star defensive end recruit never lived up to the hype coming out of high school on the defensive side of the ball, but a position change has revitalized his draft stock and has teams intrigued with his untapped potential.Kasa shows an excellent ability to turn, seal and ride out defenders in the run game while also showing strong hands and an excellent base in pass protection.Kasa is surprisingly agile for a man his size and shows good straight line speed with above average change of direction and the ability to get out in routes and make plays.Where Kasa struggles is in the intricacies of the position: he isn’t a polished route runner and was never asked to run the full route tree, he needs work on catching with his hands consistently and to run his routes with a little more finesse. Additionally, he can get a little heavy-legged in his routes.center_img Reed has extremely long arms at over 35 inches. Despite the length, was able to push out 27 reps of 225 pounds on the bench at his pro day.He added to the intrigue with an impressive 40-yard dash time of 4.65 and showed excellent short area quickness and explosion in the other drills.He isn’t nearly as developed on the field and his athleticism doesn’t always translate because of that. He looks a little stiff in his routes at times and can come out of his stance too high in both the passing game and when asked to block.When he does get out into routes he shows good hands and flashes of natural pass catching ability.If Reed stays low and compact in blocking, he is effective and has the strength to hold up and wall off defenders at the point of attack.Where Reed needs work is in the details. You can see he was never fully “coached up” at New Mexico. His route running and blocking technique need work, but with his raw athletic ability and strength, he is a guy that late in the draft, is an intriguing type of developmental player that could come in and sit behind Jeff King for the year.The 2013 tight end class is excellent. I would be happy to see a number of different players added to the Cardinals roster. Whether the Cardinals decide to strike early in round two with Stanford’s Zach Ertz or San Diego State’s Gavin Escobar, or late, with one of the three mentioned above, they should be able to find a weapon for Arians’ two-tight end offensive attack.

Good thing I do those every two years.”The team addressed the issue Wednesday, looking at the situation as more adversity for them to overcome.“As much as it stinks and as hard as it is, it’s just another obstacle to get over,” quarterback Carson Palmer said. “It’s good in that aspect that you’ve got to deal with adversity.“You don’t know what’s going to happen — an injury happens to a player, an injury happens to a coach — you’ve got to block out and focus on the task at hand and each play by play.
