The Elders Mourn The Loss Of Shimon Peres

first_imgThe Elders today expressed their condolences at the passing of Shimon Peres, former President of Israel and Nobel Peace laureate, who has died at the age of 93.Together with the late Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres won the Nobel Prize in 1994 for his role in securing the Oslo Accords with the Palestine Liberation Organisation.The Elders hailed his long life in the service of his country and in the quest for peace with the Arab world. He combined steadfast patriotism with a long-lasting belief in a two-state solution as the only way of bringing peace, justice and security to Israelis and Palestinians alike.The Elders recall their meetings with Shimon Peres during trips to Israel in 2009 and 2012 as examples of open and frank dialogue. As President and subsequently, through his work at the Peres Peace Centre, he continued to speak out about the need for an end to Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and the creation of a viable Palestinian state.Following the announcement of his death, many Elders recalled their meetings with the late Israeli leader with affection. Among the personal tributes made were the following:Kofi Annan, Chair of The Elders and former UN Secretary-General, said:“Shimon Peres was a truly remarkable man who was known not just for his sharp intellect and visionary politics but also for his warmth and sense of humour. His story is inseparable from the history of the state of Israel itself. Never afraid to stand up for his ideals, he laboured tirelessly for peace over violence and dialogue over confrontation. Israel has lost a founding father, the world a great statesman and I have lost a friend.”Gro Harlem Brundtland, Deputy Chair, who was Prime Minister of Norway at the time of the Oslo Accords:“Shimon Peres showed his commitment to peace and always remained a vocal advocate of the two-state solution even as the political and security situation deteriorated after the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993. I hope current and future leaders of Israel recall his warnings about the futility of continued occupation of Palestinian lands.”Jimmy Carter, Honorary Elder and former President of the United States who led several Elders’ delegations to Israel and Palestine:“Shimon Peres worked for many years to bring peace to Israel and Palestine, and he showed great courage in his work on the Oslo Accords, which had the potential to transform the region. He was a gracious host during my visits to Israel while he was in office.”Ernesto Zedillo, Elder and former President of Mexico:“One of the remarkable founding fathers of modern Israel, Shimon Peres will be missed immensely – for his wisdom, serenity and unwavering dedication to the peace and prosperity of his beloved nation.”Ela Bhatt, Elder, founder of the Self Employed Womens Association (SEWA), and a disciple of Mahatma Gandhi:“I remember meeting him for the first time at the Histadrut trades union federation headquarters in Tel Aviv. Later, when I met him again, together with the Elders, in 2009, I was impressed to learn that he was familiar with the thinking of the Mahatma about labour relations, especially his principle of trusteeship to ensure good cooperation between workers and managers.”last_img read more

Algerian Politician Closure of Borders Unacceptable Political Economic Social Mistake

Rabat – The Algerian Islamist party (MPS) has asserted that the closure of the Moroccan-Algerian border was “an unacceptable political, economic, cultural and social mistake.”In an interview with Algerian news outlet TSA, the party’s chairman, Abderrazak Makri, urged Morocco and Algeria to reopen the border, currently the longest closed border in the world. Makri said the decision to close the borders must be “reviewed.”On Wednesday, September 19, the politician said that both countries share a “common destiny, because we are the same people.” He added that there is “no convincing reason” to keep the border closed.Algeria decided to close the border in 1994, when Morocco imposed visa regulations on Algerian visitors in the wake of a terrorist attack on the Atlas Asi hostel in Marrakech.Morocco lifted the visa requirement in 2004. But the border has remained closed.In his interview with TSA, Makri said that the Western Sahara conflict has “nothing to do with this issue.”Throughout the years, Morocco has called on Algeria to shoulder its responsibility in the conflict and to engage in the UN-led political process to find an agreed upon and mutually acceptable solution to the conflict.Algeria, however, which hosts Polisario members on its land, has refused, claiming that the issue should be solved between Polisario and Morocco only.“It’s an illogical mistake,” said the politician about the border.On Thursday, Moroccan Ambassador to Italy Hassan Abou discussed the circumstances of Algeria’s refusal to open its borders on the sidelines of a festival of Mediterranean journalists.The Moroccan diplomat speculated that Algeria “closes its borders with Morocco because it is not prepared for integration, contrary to the propaganda it tries to convey.”He said that Algeria’s decision hampers the Maghreb integration project.The closure of the Moroccan-Algerian border has concerned activists for years. Moroccan newspaper Al Ahdath Al Maghribia reported that both Moroccan and Algerian activists marched on July 22 to the border “to call on the authorities of both countries to open the border.” read more

Security Council to debate new responses to Middle East crisis shortly

Echoing concerns over the danger of a “full-fledged war” in the Middle East expressed today by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the President of the Security Council said the 15-member body had agreed to hold a debate “shortly” to consider new responses to the crisis. Speaking after the Council held a brief open meeting to hear a statement by the Secretary-General, Ambassador Adolfo Aguilar Zinser of Mexico said Council members regretted the vicious cycle of aggression and death in the Middle East, in Palestine, in Israel, in the Occupied Territories. “As you do,” said the President, addressing Mr. Annan, “we have certainty that this situation is intolerable and entails serious risks to international security.” “We deplore the suffering of the civilian population, the loss of human life and the destruction,” the President added. “All of us, Mr. Secretary-General, want to do something to put an end to it.” Ambassador Zinser said today’s public consideration of the situation in the Middle East should serve as “as a preamble to the debate we have agreed to hold shortly.” He added that the Council’s effort to contribute to resolving the conflict and halting the bloodshed “will be an essential part” of its deliberations. Council members, he said, would examine the Secretary-General’s statement. “On that basis, and in consultation with our capitals, we shall prepare to argue our positions and to propose new initiatives.” The Mexican Ambassador also pledged that the members would work to resolve their differences. “We all want to give to the Organization and the Security Council the opportunity today to become part of the solution as together we explore new ways for the United Nations to become active in the Middle East,” he said. “We share your conviction and the conviction of the Secretariat officials that this work is essential to building peace,” the President told the Secretary-General, emphasizing the importance of an even-handed approach. “Without it, any international effort will prove sterile,” he added. read more

As UN Assembly opens annual highlevel debate Bush proposes democracy fund

Mr. Bush proposed establishing a Democracy Fund within the UN. “This is a great calling for this great organization,” he said, pledging an initial US contribution and urging other nations to donate to the fund, which would help countries lay the foundations of democracy by instituting the rule of law and independent courts, a free press, political parties and trade unions.“Each of us alone can only do so much. Together, we can accomplish so much more,” he declared, adding that history will honour the UN’s high ideals. “Let history show that in a decisive decade, members of the United Nations did not grow weary in our duties, or waver in meeting them.” Video El Haj Omar Bongo Ondimba, President President Omar Bongo Ondimba of Gabon also expressed grave concern at these disparities, calling for a “strong political will” to reach the UN Millennium Development Goals which seek to halve extreme poverty and hunger, reduce infant and maternal mortality and achieve other social goals, all by 2015.He stressed the need to reinforce the entire UN system to achieve these goals. “In this great common aspiration Africa is assuming its share of responsibility more than in the past,” he declared. “A leap in solidarity on the part of the more privileged countries is more than ever necessary. What is at stake is the survival of millions people around the world.”Video President Benjamin William MkapaFor his part President Benjamin William Mkapa of Tanzania regretted the failure of many industrialized countries to meet the long-established UN target of allocating at least 0.7 per cent of national income to development cooperation, while praising Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden for consistently doing so.”We urge the other rich countries to produce timetables to meet this long overdue target, to have coherent development policies, and to earnestly and deliberately build and nurture a national consciousness and consensus on the global war on poverty,” he added, also calling for a fairer process of globalization that would close the wealth gap.Video Bernard Rudolf Bot, Foreign AffairsForeign Minister Bernard Bot of the Netherlands also addressed the morning session on behalf of the 25 Member States of the European Union (EU), calling for an intensification of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s reform efforts to make the UN stronger, more effective and more efficient in facing global challenges from terrorism to the proliferation of weapons if mass destruction to climate change.”The EU itself is an example of multilateralism at work,” he declared, pledging the Union’s support for all the UN’s multifaceted tasks. “Conflicting interests and diverging views still exist within the EU, as they do everywhere. But conflicts are resolved in the framework of common institutions and binding rules. Multilateralism works. A rule-based international order is possible. And necessary.”Video Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunge, PresidentPresident Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga of Sri Lanka highlighted the need for UN reform, a theme also stressed by several other leaders, including an enlargement of the Security Council to reflect the new economic and regional realities of the present day.”Sri Lanka believes in the UN and its potential to be the principal forum where the voice of the poor, the defenceless and the weak is also heard as much as the voice of the rich and powerful,” she said. The UN could counter the violence proffered by extremists and terrorist groups as the only instrument of change, she added, declaring: “We expect the UN to epitomize the force of law not the rule of force. However, we cannot expect the UN to deliver what the member States fail to support. The UN can do what its Member States want it to do; no more, no less.”Video Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-ThaniThe Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, speaking also as current president of the Group of 77 developing countries and China, noted that this group now numbered 132 nations, more than two thirds of UN Member States, embodying the commitment of developing countries to the UN mission. Stressing the link between international peace and eliminating poverty, he called on developed countries to end agricultural subsidies and other measures that prevented developing countries from realizing their potential.”The continued imbalance in the distribution of the benefits of international economic interdependence, the progressive widening of the gap between the developed and the developing countries, the deterioration of the economic conditions in quite a few countries in the South and the attendant adverse effect, on the environment would accentuate the feelings of discontent and frustration and could even lead to abhorrent forms of international conflict,” he declared. Video President Luiz Inácio Lula da SilvaSpeaking at the outset of the session, Brazilian President Luis Inácio Lula da Silva appealed for economic and social justice in a world where the disparity in per capita income between the richest and poorest nations is now 16 times greater than it was nearly two decades ago, while a lack of basic sanitation has killed more children in the past decade than all military conflicts since the end of World War II.Referring to ongoing wars and terrorist attacks, he said mankind was losing the fight for peace, adding: “The situation imposes on peoples and leaders of the world a new sense of collective and individual responsibility.” He argued in favour of an international order based on a constructive dialogue among different cultures and perspectives. “No organ is better suited than the UN foe ensuring the world’s convergence towards common goals.” Video Janez Drnovšek, PresidentAs the last of the Heads of State to address the first day’s morning session, President Janez Drnovsek of Slovenia underlined the central role of the UN in the presumption of equality and the tolerant acceptance of plurality in human values.”Only a multilateral response to the modern challenges can be effective. Of all the existing organizations, the United Nations is without doubt the most important and most appropriate for seeking such responses,” he said, also stressing the need for a fairer globalization that reduced rather than increased the differences between rich and poor.Video Abel Pacheco de la Espriella, PresidentPresident Abel Pacheco de la Espriella of Costa Rica called for a fairer world economic system. “This General Assembly, which represents and expresses the common will of all mankind, must play a central role in promoting a markedly humane globalization,” he said.Noting that in 2003, the world reached a new record by devoting $956 billion to military expenditure, 17 times the amount of resources devoted to official development assistance and more than the sum of the foreign debt of the 64 countries with the lowest GDP, he declared: “These numbers show that mankind has not understood yet that security does not result from a multiplication of the weapons but from a multiplication of the loaves of bread.”Video President Joseph DeissPresident Joseph Deiss of Switzerland, which only joined the UN two years ago when dissension was rife over the possible invasion of Iraq, said experience showed that actions taken without a mandate clearly defined in a Security Council resolution are doomed to failure. “There is now a clear need for reform and for strengthening the means of joint action,” he added.”To remain credible in its role as keeper of the peace, the UN and its Member States must, above all, be unshakeable guarantors of international law and, in particular, international humanitarian law,” he declared, calling for a system of prevention that included fighting poverty and multilateral institutions that respond more rapidly to nascent crises.Video read more

UN confirms agreement with Syria on Lebanon murder probe

Secretary-General Kofi Annan was “very pleased” at this outcome, and expects Syria’s cooperation to continue throughout Mr. Mehlis’ investigation, the spokesperson said.Mr. Mehlis heads the UN International Independent Investigation Commission (UNIIIC) which, in an interim report earlier this month, determined that “converging evidence” pointed at both Lebanese and Syrian involvement in the 14 February assassination of Mr. Hariri, in which 22 other people also died.The Security Council endorsed an extension of the Commission’s mandate until 15 December and decided to extend it further if so recommended by the Commission and requested by the Lebanese Government. Mr. Annan and the Council have called on Syria to cooperate fully with the investigation.The assassination led to renewed calls for the withdrawal of all Syrian troops and intelligence agents who had been in Lebanon since the early stages of the country’s 1975-1990 civil war, and the UN reported that Syrian troops were withdrawn in April. read more

Oil drops below 84 on China data end of Statoil strike in

by News Staff Posted Jul 10, 2012 3:55 pm MDT Oil drops below $84 on China data, end of Statoil strike in North Sea NEW YORK, N.Y. – Oil prices tumbled Tuesday on further signs of an economic slowdown in China and after the government of Norway intervened to end a strike that threatened North Sea oil production.Benchmark U.S. crude fell by US$2.08, or 2.4 per cent, to finish at $83.91 per barrel. Brent crude lost $2.35 to close at $97.97 per barrel in London.China’s June imports increased by about 6 per cent. That is down from May’s rate and worse than analysts had expected. Growth in exports slowed as well. China is the world’s second biggest oil consumer behind the U.S. and if its economy slows it won’t need to use as much energy.“Crude imports into the country last month fell 14 per cent from May to a seven-month low,” independent oil analyst Jim Ritterbusch said. Traders will closely watch China’s second quarter GDP and industrial production numbers, due out at the end of the week, he said.The threat of an industry shutdown in Norway ended Monday night after the government imposed binding arbitration on striking Statoil workers. That prevented a lockout that would have cut off about 1.6 million barrels a day of Brent crude. Brent is the benchmark used to price a variety of foreign oils, and many East Coast refineries use it to make gasoline.There was also the chance that the strike would crimp supplies to major export markets, namely the U.K., the Netherlands, France and Germany, just as Europe puts in place an embargo on Iranian oil in a bid to curb its nuclear program.“The resolution of the labour dispute in Norway is significant.” said energy trader and consultant Stephen Schork.In the U.S., the Energy Department released its monthly Short-Term Energy Outlook on Tuesday. Among the highlights:— Benchmark U.S. crude is expected to average $88 per barrel in the second half of the year, down $7 from last month’s outlook.— Retail gasoline is seen averaging $3.39 a gallon in the third quarter, $3.49 a gallon for the year and $3.28 per gallon in 2013.— U.S. crude oil production should average 6.3 million barrels per day, the highest production level since 1997. Production should rise to 6.7 million barrels per day next year.On Wednesday the Energy Department releases its weekly report on the nation’s crude oil supplies. Analysts surveyed by Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill, estimate stocks will shrink by about 1.5 million barrels. That would be less than the five-year average draw of 3.7 million barrels for the comparable week. The amount of crude in storage is about 11 per cent above the five-year average.At the gas pump, the national average for a gallon of regular remained at $3.38 a gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. That’s about five cents higher than a week ago, but still around 25 cents lower than a year ago.In other energy trading heating oil futures fell three cents to finish at $2.72 a gallon. Wholesale gasoline rose 1.25 cents to close at $2.75 a gallon. Natural gas lost 14 cents to finish at $2.737 per 1,000 cubic feet.___(TSX:ECA, TSX:IMO, TSX:SU, TSX:HSE, NYSE:BP, NYSE:COP, NYSE:XOM, NYSE:CVX, TSX:CNQ, TSX:TLM, TSX:COS.UN, TSX:CVE) read more

Attending a Gears of War 3 launch event to buy Gears of

first_imgI play a pretty significant amount of video games. Some MMO, some FPS, some RTS, and some other three letter game types also frequent my consoles, my Steam account, and more. Sometimes, a game or two will fall through the cracks, and for whatever reason I will forget to play them. Such was the case with Gears of War 2. In fact, when Gears of War 3 was announced, I realized I hadn’t played it yet, only to forget about it again.Finally, last week when the Gears of War 3 launch event goodies were being shipped to stores, I was reminded that I should play the previous game. After all, you can’t play Gears of War 3 without playing the first two… that would just be wrong. I decided there was only one thing to do, I was going to go to the midnight launch of Gears of War 3 at my local GameStop and I was going to take a few pictures of the crowd and buy Gears of War 2. If only it had been that easy.My alarm went off at 11:30pm, reminding me to head to the store. I wasn’t buying Gears of War 3, so I had no need to wait in the line, but I wanted to take a few pictures and get a few comments from the staff and the happy geeks waiting for the game. I approached the store with a camera around my neck and a business card in hand so the Store Manager would know who I was.When the GameStop employee saw my camera, a Nikon Coolpix mind you, not a huge DSLR or anything even approaching that, he signaled the security guard and the two of them told me that if I removed my lens cap I would be removed form the premises. A little extreme, I thought, but I figured it was their party. When asked if I have fully paid for the game yet, I stated very clearly that I was there to buy Gears of War 2, not GoW3. The security guard wandered back to his seat while the employee continued to stare at me as though I had just told him I had never used a fork before.Thanks to GameStop security we didn’t get any shots. This will have to do.Finally, he gestured me into the store and I was allowed to enter. Locating the game was pretty simple, and for $20 (used) how could I complain? I approached the counter and handed the next employee my empty case. The employee cordially invited me to take part in their raffle, which would earn me a free copy of Gears of War 3. I put my name on his little sticker and proceeded to pull out my wallet, then he looked at me confusedly and asked if I was trading in the game I just handed him. After explaining the situation, he rang up my order and asked if I am also buying Gears of War 3. I explained that if I have both games, I will be pressured to beat the second game quickly so I can play the third. In the end, I walked out of the store just before midnight with my game in hand.Everything about Gears of War 3 looks like it will be an amazing game, but I had to play the second game first. As irony would have it, I got through the first part of Gears of War 2 when the game locked up and froze due to scratches on the disc, and I haven’t been back to the GameStop to exchange it yet. Who knows, maybe I’ll go next month and get Modern Warfare 2 on launch day.last_img read more

Fonseca admits Shakhtar deserved 60 thrashing to Man City

Meanwhile, we were neither far nor close to being ourselves.”Shakhtar are four points adrift of second-placed Lyon in Group F with just two games remaining.“We’ve still got every chance of securing the second spot,” added Fonseca.“Clearly, it will be very difficult, but mathematically possible. It just remains to win two games, at the same time realising that it will be tough. Let’s see if we can be better in boxing than in football.”Shakhtar will next face Hoffenheim in Group F on November 27.last_img read more

Statewide taxable retail spending up 76 percent

first_imgBusiness and consumer spending increased the state’s taxable retail sales by 7.6 percent for the three months ending Sept. 30, according to figures released today by the Washington State Department of Revenue. Taxable retail sales for the third quarter of 2013 reached $31 billion, a $2.2 billion increase over the same period in 2012. “The increase in taxable retail sales was driven by auto sales and new construction,” said Carol Nelson, the department’s revenue director. Third quarter store-only purchases also increased by 5.4 percent over the same period the year before. Store-only retail trade is a subset of total taxable retail sales and includes apparel, home furnishings, books, cars and general merchandise but excludes sales in industries such as manufacturing and construction. Last week, the state reported that Clark County’s third quarter retail sales had also improved, with spending up by 8 percent, to $1.3 billion from $1.2 billion in the same period in 2012.last_img read more

Facebook will be nothing but videos by 2021

first_imgFacebook is by far and away the largest social network on the Internet, bringing together friends, family, and colleagues to discuss in text, images, and video form whatever they feel like every day. But Facebook is apparently changing, and within 5 years the entire social network will consist of video content.That’s not the prediction of this writer or some social network researcher, it’s the view of Nicola Mendelsohn, Facebook’s vice president for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. She also believes that Facebook “will be definitely mobile,” which we can only assume means accessed almost exclusively on mobile devices.Mendelsohn’s claim that most people will be using mobile devices to access Facebook in the near future is the much more believable prediction of the two. Facebook being 100% videos by 2021? I don’t think so.Video is still a relatively new addition to Facebook, but most certainly a feature that is growing in popularity. Zuckerberg thinks it is important, meaning it’s going to get a lot of attention and resources put behind it. So it will grow rapidly, but I can’t see it replacing images and text. In fact, I doubt Facebook’s management would want that to happen seeing as it owns image sharing service Instagram (although it can also handle video).Not everything works as a video, and not everyone is comfortable making videos. Sometimes you just want to write, or have a text chat, or post an image of a cat. Video takes longer to create unless we’re talking Vine-length captures, and is much easier to create poorly ultimately meaning it doesn’t get posted.Mendelsohn says the amount of text appearing on Facebook is declining every year while video grows and virtual reality is coming. On those points I’m sure she’s correct, but by 2021 I expect plenty of the billion+ people using Facebook to still be tapping out sentences of text and sharing them with their little community of followers.last_img read more

Unions battle for QF maintenance to remain in Aus

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T Three unions have teamed challenging Qantas (QF) to continue operating its heavy maintenance facilities in Australia. The Australian Workers Union, Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU) and Electrical Trades Union have aligned in an effort to save jobs display Australia’s potential as a worldwide manufacturing hub. AMWU national assistant secretary Glenn Thompson said the only way to uphold Qantas’ first-class safety record is to have maintenance operations remain in Australia. “Qantas’ safety record comes down to its highly qualified and highly skilled workers,” said Mr Thompson. Qantas is currently reviewing its heavy maintenance operations and facilities based in Victoria and Queensland at Avalon, Tullamarine and Brisbane.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   Ken Whisenhunt was out of a head coaching job for exactly 379 days.The Arizona Cardinals fired Whisenhunt on New Year’s Eve 2012 after six years on the job. Tuesday, at a news conference in Nashville, he was named the head coach of the Tennessee Titans.Undoubtedly Whisenhunt had success in the desert, leading the Cardinals to two straight NFC West divisional titles and their only trip to the Super Bowl. But following Kurt Warner’s retirement in 2010, things went downhill for Whisenhunt and the Cardinals, who struggled over the next three seasons and failed to groom a quarterback to fill Warner’s shoes. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling When asked by host Charissa Thompson if Whisenhunt or Warner should have received the credit for the Cardinals’ two-year run as a playoff team, Leinart responded again.“Kurt Warner was fantastic,” he said.Certainly, Leinart was clear that it was Warner, not Whisenhunt, that was the key to Arizona’s success. The numbers certainly support that claim. The Cardinals went 24-18 under Whisenhunt when Warner started games and 21-33 when others were under center.Tennessee doesn’t currently have a franchise-type quarterback on its roster. Jake Locker, a 2011 first-round pick, has been mostly ineffective when healthy. In three seasons, he’s only been able to start 18 games, going 8-10. Journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick is also under contract for 2014.<br /> <A href=”http://msn.foxsports.com/arizona/story/leinart-questions-titans-hiring-of-whisenhunt-011414?videoId=1e1b7e0b-011f-4429-854a-b3e2bbbfc284&#038;from=shareembed-syndication&#038;src=v5:embed:syndication:” target=”_new” title=”One Timers: Pete Carroll, Ken Whisenhunt, Tom Brady and Superman”>Video: One Timers: Pete Carroll, Ken Whisenhunt, Tom Brady and Superman</A><br /> Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories One of the candidates to take Warner’s job was Matt Leinart. The former Heisman Trophy winner and 2006 first-round draft pick of the Cardinals completed 78.6 percent of his passes during the 2010 preseason, but was passed over by Whisenhunt for the starting job, which went to Derek Anderson, who had signed as a free agent prior to the season. Leinart was cut, and signed with the Houston Texans.Three years later, Leinart is a free agent and dabbling in the media. Monday, on Fox Sports Live, the 30-year-old shared his thoughts on Tennessee’s coaching hire.“I don’t think it’s a great fit, and I don’t think it’s great timing, and here’s why,” Leinart said. “You look at his tenure in Arizona — only two years, he had success, and in those two years, Kurt Warner ran that football team — I was a part of it.“Every single Monday, Kurt Warner would come in an implement 20-to-30 new plays which he would say ‘I want these in my game plan.’ We became a spread offense and we became Kurt Warner’s offense. Then Kurt Warner retires, they go 5-11 twice and they go 8-8.”Leinart’s thirty-second clock expired at that point, but he concluded with this: “The Tennessee Titans do not have a quarterback right now.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
