Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Indeed, the Cardinals can ill-afford to give away opportunities, and while it would be nice to find a quarterback who can light up the scoreboard, the coach feels like cutting down on turnovers could be equally important.“To me, number one at that position, we cannot turn the ball over the way we’ve done in preseason.”It would probably be fair to say the QB competition has not gone exactly according to plan, because most were hoping (or expecting) one of the two options to really stand out. Unfortunately neither of the two has really staked claim to the job, which is pretty disappointing. Arizona Cardinal quarterbacks have combined to throw seven interceptions in four preseason games.Three of those picks belong to Kevin Kolb and two to John Skelton, meaning each QB has had some issues with ball control.That’s going to have to change, according to Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. “If you look at where we are as a team, if we don’t turn the ball over we’ve got a pretty good football team,” Whisenhunt told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Monday.

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Some of it was technique, some of it was just getting whipped at the line of scrimmage.”Keim added it is something that needs to be improved, saying the issues stem from a combination of personnel and technique. “We’re certainly going to continue to work our butts off to address that position,” he said. It is unclear what, if anything, Keim and his staff can do to fix the personnel. The team traded left tackle Levi Brown to the Pittsburgh Steelers a few weeks ago, but the veteran’s replacement, Bradley Sowell, has struggled.And as ProFootballFocus noted, Sowell has allowed 24 pressures in three starts, including nine in Thursday’s loss. Right tackle Eric Winston, who was a free agent pickup, allowed nine hurries and one sack to the Seahwks, while guards Paul Fanaika and Nate Potter (who replaced an injured Daryn Colledge) each struggled up front. The site graded only center Lyle Sendlein and guard Daryn Colledge positively in the loss. – / 36 Top Stories center_img Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was sacked seven times in Thursday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. According to ProFootballFocus.com, he was pressured on 31 of his 54 dropbacks, meaning he was under duress more often than not. “Our offensive line, quite frankly, played their worst game of the season,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Monday. “Three of the five guys struggled significantly.

Go back to the enewsletter The newly opened EAST

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterThe newly opened EAST, Miami – the first US hotel from Swire Hotels’ EAST brand, and the signature hotel at Swire Properties Inc’s $1.05-billion landmark Brickell City Centre – has already received critical acclaim for its use of groundbreaking architecture and modernist design focused on natural interiors. A 40-storey complex featuring two unique restaurants and bars, 352 guest rooms and suites, an outdoor patio with four pools, public spaces, and conference and banquet rooms, EAST, Miami is the result of a collaboration of world-class architects, interior designers and artists who created an unprecedented dynamic lifestyle experience in the heart of Miami’s financial district.The global team responsible for EAST, Miami is detailed below.Arquitectonica: EAST, Miami was conceptualised by award-winning Miami-based architecture firm Arquitectonica, known worldwide for its humanistic, modern design and keen focus on geometry and patterns. Two dramatic “erosions” – triangular cutouts at key points within the slender tower – make way for a pool and deck, providing distinct views from a variety of pedestrian standpoints. A keen use of the city’s natural air flow creates wide-open, naturally cooled decks and patios, giving the hotel a relaxed, modern vibe from top to bottom.Clodagh Designs: Award-winning New York-based Clodagh Designs provided a sophisticated take on a modern beachfront property dropped into a buzzing urban centre. A combination of textures, unpredictable colour and lighting, subtle earth tones and sculptural furniture allow designer Clodagh to engage guests with subtle visual cues. Bridges and pathways provide transitions from one experience to another, utilising colour and light as navigational tools. The perception of crossing seamlessly from experience to experience inspires a feeling of community throughout the hotel, making each of the towers’ individual spaces uniquely connected as one.Indiewalls: Working closely with local and national artists, Clodagh and art dealer Indiewalls selected works including sculptures, paintings and photographs that highlight Miami’s scenic locales, drenched in a palette of blue, yellow, white and amber. Custom commissions, sculptures and framed prints create an individualised collection that further defines EAST, Miami as a relaxing outpost for both entertainment and culture.Studio Collective: EAST, Miami’s two distinct restaurant and bar experiences – Quinto La Huella, the parrilla grill inspired by Uruguay’s beachside Parador La Huella, and Sugar, the rooftop bar and garden located on the 40th floor – were designed by Los Angeles-based Studio Collective. With interior and al fresco dining options and a beach vibe similar to its sister restaurant in Uruguay, Quinto La Huella is anchored by its massive, wood-burning parrilla grill. At the centre of the restaurant’s main dining room, a sprawling bar commands guests’ attention. Drawing inspiration from the lush jungles in Southeast Asia, Studio Collective designers landscaped Sugar with a plethora of plants and trees, including Cocoplum, Fragrant Star Jasmine and swaying White Fountain Grasses, as well as local Sea Grape and Plumeria.CLIMATE RIBBON: Framing the hotel’s fifth floor is the signature CLIMATE RIBBON, which forms an architectural canopy over the expansive porch and pool deck shared with Quinto La Huella, providing shade and natural cooling. A masterpiece of art and science composed of steel, fabric and continuous glass surface, The CLIMATE RIBBON is a $30 million elevated trellis. Glazed to protect pedestrians from rain, and designed to collect an estimated three million gallons of rainwater annually, its undulating shape encourages Miami’s prevailing breezes to flow through the concourse.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more
