In their home playoff game against Seattle, they started Greg Ward, Robert Davis and Deontay Burnett. There’s no telling what they’ll get from Jeffery or Jackson, and with the depth at receiver in this year’s class, it’d be a great time to pick up a young duo that could wreak havoc for years.Linebacker:  The Eagles currently only have five linebackers on the roster, and none of them are particularly experienced, so they could definitely find a starter in the first few rounds, and look to add depth towards the end.Offensive Tackle: Even though Philadelphia has one of the best offensive lines in the league, the only back up tackle on the roster is Jordan Mailata, so there’s certainly a need to add depth there.Defensive Back:  The Eagles made a big move by trading for Darius Slay, but they still need to add depth at corner back with some players approaching free agency. They could also use some backup at safety behind Jalen Mills and Rodney McLeod.Eagles mock draft 2020Here are the latest 2020 NFL Draft projections for the Eagles, according to Vinnie Iyer’s seven-round mock draft :RoundPickPlayerPositionSchool121Justin JeffersonWRLSU253Malik HarrisonLBOhio State3103Michael OjemudiaCBIowa4127Saahdiq CharlesOTLSU4145J.R.

But they made a lot more noise with their second-round pick, taking Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.While there were some questions about Reagor’s selection over players like Tee Higgins and Justin Jefferson, his role in Philadelphia’s offense is pretty clear. But that’s not the case with Hurts. Is he supposed to replace the oft-injured Carson Wentz? Is he going to a Taysom-Hill-esque gadget player? Is here merely a backup? While Hurts probably dominated most of the conversation among Eagles fans, Philadelphia selected 10 total players in the 2020 Draft, which means there will be lots of other questions regarding roles in the preseason.Here’s a look at where the Eagles will be picking in the 2020 NFL Draft along with updated selections:last_img read more

Temperature Scanners Set Up at PB County Government Buildings

first_imgThermal scanners are now in operation at Palm Beach County governments buildings, as part of an effort to scan visitors and employees for fevers during the COVID-19 pandemic.At least 10 of the devices have already been set up in buildings including the courthouse, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office headquarters and the staff entrance of the county jail, according to the Sheriff’s Office and the scanner’s distributor.“It is monitoring external temperature only,” says Ryan Barnett, owner of Vetted Security Solutions, who sold the scanners to the county.Visitors with a temperature above 100 will not be allowed to enter the buildings. Alarms sound on the scanners when they detect a person with a high external body temperature.According to Barnett, “[They’re useful] anywhere where you ave a high flow of people and need to scan a large number of people.”Some people have expressed privacy concerns, saying that the temperature scanners could collect personal data.However, Barnett says the systems do not store temperature or video data, and temperatures cannot be accessed in the system after someone passes by the scanner.“None of the law enforcement agencies are storing any of this data,” he adds. “It’s never touching a law enforcement network.”last_img read more

CALIFORNIA CUP DERBY QUOTES-SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 2020

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES TIAGO PEREIRA, FAST ENOUGH, WINNER:  “I was on him the first time and he won easily.  I saw that he was nominated for this race, so I told Rafael (Becerra) I wanted to ride him again.  I worked him the other day in .59 and he galloped out easily.  I knew we had a good chance today.  I wanted to be up closer in the first part of the race, but he settled nicely.  I saved ground and when the opportunity to make our move on the turn came, he took off and came up on the three (Sacred Rider) for the win.”TRAINER QUOTESRAFAEL BECERRA, FAST ENOUGH, WINNER: “He gave us a great work out, I was very happy about it. We brought him out and he galloped super good, I felt good about it.“He needed some time off because he had sore shins and he got a little sick, so that gave me more time to develop him. After that he was fine. I think he is going to get better.“I was confident because I saw no other horses coming. That three horse (Sacred Rider) would not give up. Tiago knew he had the horse, he just had to keep him focused.“We will see what is next, we will talk it over with the owners and go from there.”STEVE SPECHT, TRAINER OF SACRED RIDER, SECOND:  “He’s just coming into his own.  He’s a steady little horse but he’s really improved since we stretched him out.  He’ll run on anything dirt, turf or synthetic. Abel rode a great race today.  I told him the whole key was, ‘Don’t get pushed down inside and get jammed up behind those horses.’  I thought the one horse (Bettor Trip Nick) would go to the front and I told Abel to stay in three’s path.  He ran great and we’re really proud of him.”CRAIG MARTIN, OWNER/BREEDER FAST ENOUGH, WINNER:  “I’ve been the smallest of the small owners.  Until recently, I lived in Alaska, but I love Santa Anita.  I claimed his dam Brilliant Melody about five years ago for $40,000 and it didn’t work out, but I’ve been able to breed her the last five years.  To be able to win a race like this at Santa Anita is beyond description.”NOTES:  The winning owner/breeder is Craig Martin.last_img read more

Kepa’s substitution creates a problem for Luis Enrique

first_imgSpain will return to the activity at the end of March, in the friendly against Germany and Holland, on the 26th and 29th of next month. It will be the last chance by Luis Enrique for leave doubts before giving the list of the 23 of the Eurocup. Therefore, Kepa, De Gea and Pau still have eight weeks to reverse the situation. That or risk that Luis Enrique search emergency solutions. Only three alternatives appear on the horizon: Unai Simón (22 years old), Aitor (28) and Reina (37). It is not time for changes, except force majeure substitutions. The following has been sit on the bench. Last Saturday before Leicester, Kepa (25 years old) was alternate by technical decision for the first time since arriving at the Premier. He took his place Willy Knight (38). A bad omen that Lampard supports in statistics. Of all the Premier goalkeepers who have played more than ten games with their teams, Kepa is the one who offers the worst percentage of stops: 55.56%.The picture is not much better for From Gea, although it hasn’t gotten worse in recent weeks. From Gea, to whom Kepa hit the sorpasso in the Selection at the stage of Robert Moreno, is making a so gray season like that of his team, Manchester United. His failure in the match against him Watford He was very commented in England and his coach, Solskjaer, He doubted him. But without reaching the level of distrust of Lampard with Kepa. Luis Enrique go restless how I know complicates the panorama less than six months from Spain debut in the Eurocup. The only ones three goalkeepers which have been convened during the entire qualification phase, Kepa, De Gea and Pau López, go through difficulties in their respective teams. There is special concern with the owner in the last section, Kepa Arrizabalaga, which has been relegated to the bench in the ChelseaLampard, coach of blues, threatens to prolong substitution from Arrizabalaga. Their harsh statements on the Basque goalkeeper they predict that the situation can be prolonged. “Kepa is honest and knows that he has made mistakes They have cost us goals. Will have to get used to criticism“.” With his feet he was very slow on a couple of occasions. He almost gives it to the rival. It’s something you’ll know and we have to check. “center_img From Gea, who do I take years to win the resistance of Boxes, was finally the head of Spain in the Eurocup of France, in 2016. That change ended the friendship between Íker Casillas and Del Bosque, who made the decision. The Toledo goal held the position until the last June, when Kepa appeared in the Bernabéu as headline before Sweden, in the decisive match of the classification for the European Championship. Robert Moreno said then that the change in goal had been analyzed, discussed and approved by Luis Enrique, with whom by then he no longer spoke although his divorce was not yet public.The another goalkeeper convened by Spain in the qualification phase is Pau Lopez. The former Betis and Espanyol had a good start in Serie A, but failed in the derby against Lazio and that is not easily forgotten in Rome. Since that game he has given symptoms of nervousness and, without being as questioned as Kepa and De Gea, neither it can be said that be comfortablelast_img read more

Pac-10 notes: Someone call an exorcist

first_imgThere’s many plausible explanations for UCLA’s two-game losing streak and upset in the quarterfinals of the Pac-10 Tournament. But this was a strange one, indeed. After Ben Howland did his press conference at Staples Center, he talked to a group of reporters in the hallway of UCLA’s locker room. A local television reporter asked Howland how players were going to get rid of the demons and devils in their heads. Huh? Howland simply looked at the reporter. What was he supposed to say? So, the reporter repeated the statement. “They’ve got demons in their heads,” she said. “Anybody else got a question?” Howland asked. The reporter said Howland wasn’t answering her question, to which Howland said she hadn’t asked one. Then she said: “I’m asking you to respond to what people are saying (about the devils and demons).” Howland turned to another reporter, who asked a question about UCLA’s quest for a No. 1 seed and whether that was valid anymore. NEW JERSEYS: Arizona is 0 for 1 in its new sleeveless jerseys. The Wildcats debuted a new jersey, made by Nike, on Thursday. Ohio State, among other schools, is donning a similar jersey. “The thing with the current jerseys is that they’re heavy; they hold in a lot of the perspiration,” Olson told the Arizona Daily Star. “You constantly see guys pulling their sleeves up. We had asked them back when they started talking with us about the possibility of a sleeveless-type thing so we don’t have this affecting the shot.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DD Motoring: The Next Generation – The Volvo S90

first_imgWe drove the S90 Inscription this week which is the top of the range Volvo car courtesy of local dealership in Donegal McGinley Motors. As one of the many admirers remarked this week “thats what a real car should look like” – it was the perfect description for this range topping type car.A 190bhp diesel automatic is driving at the top level. Sitting inside the car it’s not long before Volvo have made you feel very special. The car has dark soft Nappa leather everywhere with beautiful hand stitched finishing.Around the dash and the centre console of our car had sections of what looked like lightly waxed walnut wood. And the seats were just something else. Advertisement It’s not very many seats that I can say I am perfectly comfortable in but this comes close to perfect. The base of the seat had an extending front section which I thought was just class for anyone with long legs and then the two sides of the back of the seat can adjust to suit all sizes of backs.The key is not used to start the car but needs to be near hand. A switch in the middle console is turned to fire up the D4 engine. The starter switch and its position between the two fronts seats would remind me of another Swedish car the Saab now no longer in production.One thing that this Volvo made me feel was connected to the car, something other cars seem to fail to achieve. The stop start system for example gave me the most confidence of sitting stopped in traffic as soon as you touch the throttle paddle the car restarts and you’re on the move right away.When you get the S80 out on the open road, 8 seconds will take this car from a standing start to 100kmph. The 8 speed Geartronic as Volvo call it it a pleasure to drive, you have the option to change over to manually control the gear change which I tried for all of 10 seconds and I thought to myself what is the point? The automatic gearbox is far better than any human, it’s easy on the driver and its easy on the car. Advertisement Lurgy testI always head up Lurgybrack hill outside Letterkenny to see how a car is pulling in gears, something I do with a lot of the cars that I drive. This car flew up the hill and I ended up having to slow it up a couple of time to keep it within the speed limit before I got to the top of the hill.What I never done before was to put Volvo’s IntelliSafe Technology systems to the test which included avoidance technology, Lane Keeping aid and what I was interested in was Adaptive Cruise Control.For the first time in my life I came the whole way down Lurgybrack Hill outside Letterkenny with out touching the brakes.About a mile before the steep hill into Letterkenny I had the car on cruise control and as they car caught up with the lane of traffic ahead it adjusted it speed to keep me a safe distance behind the car in front of me. As we made our way down into Letterkenny, with my foot hovering over the brake paddle (for my own comfort) the car still maintained a safe distance behind the car in front, and came to a stop on its own at the foot of the hill as the traffic made its way on to the Dry Arch roundabout.A view of the Volvo from its surround camera as it makes its way through the Box Junction at the Courthouse in Letterkenny. Photo Brian McDaidThis week we were out in the new Volvo S90 courtesy of Mc Ginley Motors in Letterkenny. A while back Noel reminded me that I never did a write up on the new Volvo range. I thought I did test a Volvo recently turns out he was right. The last time I had a Volvo out for a test drive was in February, not February this year or last year but Februrary in 1990! It’s funny how it just seems like yesterday, but that was over a quarter of a century ago, 27 years to be exact, I even managed to find a photo of the Volvo I tested a 440 I think which was given to me courtesy of the late Liam Mc Glinchey who was the main Volvo dealer for Co. Donegal.“Sure take the wee car with you” That was a great saying of Big Liam’s at his garage in Convoy where he was selling more Volvos that anyone else in the country. My father gave me a look when I landed into the council estate where I lived in Glencar with a brand new Volvo car back in the 90s.“Where in under God are you going with that car? Folk will think we won the pools!” He still didn’t refuse a spin in the new car and we ended up down at An Grianan Fort where I took this picture of him standing beside the car. Little did I know that day that it would be the last photo of my father I would take as he would pass away in the following months on the 18th of April 1990.My late father Fred McDaid out with me on a test drive in 1990 in a brand new Volvo. Photo Brian McDaidThere is something very familiar about Volvos every time I sit in one. They were car makers that were always to the forefront in driver and passenger safety. You are reminded about this when you pull the seatbelt around you when you get into the car. It’s nearly 60 years since Volvo which started working on the safety of its passengers in 1959 and these new Volvos are no different.As I headed out for a run in this lovely S90 in a classy dark metallic blue, I ended up on the pier in Rathmullan where I think is just a beautiful setting to picture the car for our report.The S80 Volvo on the pier in Rathmullan this week which we drove courtesy of Mc Ginleys Motors main Volvo Dealers for Co Donegal . Photo Brian McDaidSpotting some fish boxes at the side of the frame of the picture I thought I would move the car up the pier a bit for a better picture.I hopped in and as I went to move forward the car decided it wasn’t going to budge. I went through the procedure again and the car still would move. As I looked at the dash I could see that image of the four seats with the driver seat in red. I didn’t realise that I hadn’t my seat belt on and one of the many safety devices in the car was activated.The driver of this Volvo has to have his/her seat belt on before this car will move an inch, which is only right.In summing up this fine car, Volvo always made strong cars with the safety of its driver and passengers paramount. This new generation of Volvo which we included a photo of with one of my next generation, my son Niall, has continued with that mission in life.The next generation NIall Mc Daid pictured along side the present generation of Volvo which we tested this week. Photo Brian McDaidThere’s a Volvo for everyone in the S90 range starting well under €50,000. The range includes very refined petrol and diesel and hybrids and with two wheel drive and four wheel drive.The cars are powerful but all use Volvos E-drive which minimises the emissions.The Volvo always had a personality of its own and this S90 has it in both in style and most important in safety.Happy Motoring FolksDD Motoring: The Next Generation – The Volvo S90 was last modified: April 12th, 2017 by Brian McDaidShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:dd motoringreviewvolvo s90last_img read more
