I know you guys are sick of hearing me drone on about the OSU defense being better than its perception but hey, it’s not me saying it anymore!In the podcast that’s coming out later today, Amilian and I talked about how OKC Dave is very good at taking large sums of (often complicated) data and packaging it in a very understandable way.This piece showing, not that the OSU defense is necessarily great, but how it might be the most misunderstood is a really great read.So go read it.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

MONTREAL – A retired Mohawk professional wrestler has reached an agreement in principle to settle a lawsuit with singer Van Morrison over the use of his image on the cover of an upcoming album, his lawyer said Friday.Billy Two Rivers’ New York-based attorney, Michael Graif, said the litigation has been put on hold while the two parties work out the details.“Billy is very happy to have a quick settlement without further litigation,” Graif said in a phone interview.Two Rivers, a longtime wrestler turned politician and activist from the Kahnawake Mohawk territory near Montreal, filed the complaint in July in the United States against Universal Music Group and the musician.Two Rivers, 82, said a photograph of him in the wrestling ring was used on the cover of Morrison’s upcoming album without his agreement or consent.The black and white photograph is also part of the promotional material for the album, titled “Roll With the Punches,” which is scheduled for release Sept. 22.The photo is believed to be from a British wrestling promotion.“This case was a very simple case,” Graif said.“It involved the use of Billy Two Rivers’ image on Van Morrison’s upcoming album cover without my client’s authorization.”Emails to the record label and the singer’s agents were not immediately returned.Graif explained that everyone has the right to control the use of their image for commercial purposes, regardless of whether the photographer has granted rights to the photo.He said he did not know the details of the settlement or whether Two Rivers’ image would still be used.Two Rivers, who spent nearly a quarter century in the ring beginning in the 1950s, has also worked as an actor and was involved in Kahnawake politics for two decades.

by Allison Jones, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 26, 2015 11:32 am MDT Last Updated Nov 26, 2015 at 6:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Ontario’s Liberal government trumpeted a lower deficit projection Thursday as evidence it is reining in spending, but in reality much of the drop was due to a temporary accounting measure.The new 2015-16 deficit projection of $7.5 billion — $1 billion lower than was forecast in the spring budget — is mainly the result of the recent initial public offering of Hydro One, which increases revenue on the books by $1.1 billion, the government said in its fall economic update.The government is on track to eliminate the deficit by 2017-18, said Finance Minister Charles Sousa.“For the last six years running we’ve managed our program spending to offset softer revenues,” he told the legislature.“We know with those challenges before us we need to address them and we are. We’re overcoming those challenges by controlling our spending, going over our underground economy issues and going line by line to find the appropriate savings.”The Liberal government has promised to dedicate the proceeds of asset sales, such as the Hydro One IPO, to the Trillium Trust infrastructure fund.It’s a promise both opposition parties doubt, but Sousa said it’s all going to infrastructure, which the Liberals have pledged to spend $134 billion on over 10 years.But that money must first be on the books as a non-tax revenue item, he said.Progressive Conservative critic Vic Fedeli suggested that once the Hydro One revenue is moved into the Trillium Trust the deficit goes right back up.“The only explanation is the fact that it’s artificially there,” he said. “You can’t spend it twice. You’re either going to put it against the deficit, as they did here, or you’re going to put it in the other column. They’re attempting to spend the same dollars two times.”The IPO raised $1.83 billion, but a deferred tax asset benefit, special dividend and payment-in-lieu of taxes brought the total from the sale of 15 per cent of the utility to $5 billion.That was $3 billion more than Ontario had projected, Sousa said.The NDP is concerned that a mention in the economic update that the government “will need to consider other tools” to get to balance by its self-imposed target of 2017-18 if revenue growth falls short is a signal it is planning on selling off more assets.Sousa would not rule out new or higher taxes as those “other tools.”The fall economic statement also reveals the Liberals expect to see $300 million in 2016-17 in cap-and-trade proceeds — which Premier Kathleen Wynne has said will go to reinvesting in green technology and helping people mitigate increased costs — rising to $1.3 billion in 2017-18. Sousa said revenue from the cap-and-trade system would be accounted for in the same way as the Hydro One revenue.The rosy picture the government attempted to paint of a quicker path to balance also came with a lower growth forecast. In the spring budget the government projected the province’s real GDP would increase by 2.7 per cent in 2015 and 2.4 per cent in 2016.Now, the government says real GDP growth is forecast to be 1.9 per cent in 2015 and 2.2 per cent in 2016.The province’s net debt is still projected to hit nearly $300 billion by March 31, 2016, though the current projection is now slightly lower than the estimate in the budget.Interest on debt is also now forecast to be $140 million below the estimate in the budget because of low interest rates.Sousa also said the government will establish a committee to look at improving the representation of women on boards and in senior executive positions, as well as a committee on the sharing economy, encompassing ride-hailing services such as Uber. Ontario’s projection of lower deficit largely due to temporary Hydro One money
CHANGZHOU, China — Australia backed into the Women’s Champions Trophy final against the Netherlands after surprisingly losing to Japan 3-1 on Saturday.The Hockeyroos’ nerves were then jangling when China had a chance to make the field hockey final but lost to the Dutch 2-1.The Australians will meet the Netherlands in the final on Sunday, five days after the Dutch crushed them 3-0. Both teams will be going for a record-tying seventh title. Their last match was in the Women’s World Cup semifinals in July, when the Netherlands won in a shootout.Japan hadn’t won a match in the round robin, but started fast against Australia with goals to Yuri Nagai in the third minute and Yukari Mano on a counterattack. Minami Shimizu scored off a deflection to start the second half, and Australia finally unlocked the Japan defence through newcomer Penny Squibb from a penalty corner in the 54th.China then needed a draw or win, be the first team to take points from the Netherlands. But Maxime Kerstholt scored the only goal of the first half.And when China swapped out its goalkeeper, the Dutch swapped their’s, too, and reacted first. Marijn Veen scored her tournament-leading fifth goal for insurance.In the final seconds, Gu Bingfeng scored from a penalty corner for China, only the second goal conceded by the Netherlands in five matches.Argentina, the titleholder, stayed in the medal hunt after taking down Olympic champion Britain 1-0. Victoria Sauze scored from a penalty corner in the fifth minute, and Argentina held on.Argentina will play China on Sunday for bronze.___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press
DDH1 Drilling Pty Ltd, a leading deep directional drilling services company, has received an investment from funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, a leading global alternative investment management firm. DDH1 will continue to advance its current strategy with strategic support from Oaktree that will allow it to provide expanded capacity and capabilities to its customers. DDH1 was advised by Novo Capital and terms of the Oaktree investment were not disclosed. DDH1 is a leading provider of deep directional mineral drilling services used to identify and extend resources, reserves and mining plans for Australia’s exploration and mining industry. It explains that it “designs complex drilling programs delivered by highly skilled rig operators and has a strong history of satisfying customer requirements. The company’s drill rig fleet is modern, standardized and the largest in Australia for deep directional mineral coring.”Co-founders of DDH1, Murray Pollock and Matt Thurston, will continue in their roles as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, respectively. Together they bring over 70 years of experience in the industry and have pioneered deep directional drilling technologies in Australia. “DDH1 will continue to be managed by its founding directors and long term staff, and we remain committed to our strategy of being the drilling contractor and employer of choice in the mining and exploration industry,” said Pollock. “With the support of Oaktree’s capital and expertise, we intend to focus on growing our business organically, and we will also carefully consider consolidating similar niche operators to gain expanded capacity and provide our customers with enhanced drilling services as industry demand recovers.” Byron Beath, Managing Director at Oaktree, commented: “Throughout the recent mining downturn, there has been significant underinvestment in the capacity of the Australian drilling services industry due to low demand, competitive pricing and numerous insolvencies. During this period, DDH1 has continued to invest in its capacity and has consolidated its market-leading position in its targeted service. Oaktree’s investment will further enable DDH1 to grow to meet the demand from its customers.” Oaktree has extensively researched the Australian drilling landscape in light of the cyclical stress the sector has experienced, and has identified DDH1 as a leading operator in the sector with a disciplined focus on services that are critical to the sustainability of a mining operation. “The fact that DDH1 has been able to survive and emerge stronger during the recent downturn is a validation of the high quality and essential service that DDH1 provides to its clients,” Beath added. DDH1 is a leading deep directional drilling services company, founded with one diamond core drilling rig in 2006. As of 30 June 2017 the company has a fleet of over 50 diamond coring rigs with operations spread across Western Australia, Northern Territory and Australia’s east coast. The company has pioneered deep directional drilling techniques in Australia and says it “has a leading market position by capability, fleet size and reputation.”

Close Taylor Swifts latest big victory may have been watching Apple blink after the pop star called out the tech giant for its initial policy of refusing to pay artists during free trials of its new Apple Music streaming service.Apples change of heart came after the 25-year-old singer posted on Tumblr that shed hold back her latest hit album 1989 from the service. Its decision to now pay artists during its three-month trial period may offer up hope of finding a new model for the record industry, explained Shirley Halperin, of Billboard magazine.I think what we are getting to is a new economic model that really decides what the value of music is, said Halperin, the magazines news director. That is something that Taylor Swift put out there by addressing the matter in her letter to Apple. That is something that record companies, artist, majors, indies, promoters, everyone has been looking at this on how do you make money as a musician these days.After the backflip from Apple, Swift turned to Twitter to thank both Apple and her supporters, telling her 59m Twitter followers: I am elated and relieved. Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us.Swift has fought with music streaming services before. She pulled her entire catalogue of music from online streaming platform Spotify last November and refused to offer 1989 on streaming services, saying the business had shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically.Taylor Swift happens to be the pop culture sensation of the moment and she has been for some time, explained Halperin, on the star power that Swift carries. Shes on the road right now, shes promoting, shes very visible, shes on Twitter, shes interacting with her fans. She just has a very loud bullhorn which she can use and she is.As a result, Halperin called Apples reversal to now pay artists during free trials of its new Apple Music streaming service a smart and long-term move.I think it is in Apples best interest to show that they care about the artist. That they are invested in the music business. That they are in it for the long haul. These are the things they will get from the change in course.Apple Music will debut on 30 June and cost $9.99 per month in the US.
Share Associated PressIn this May 23, 2017, photo, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, left, and his wife Ivanka Trump watch during a visit by President Donald Trump to Yad Vashem to honor the victims of the Holocaust in Jerusalem. The Washington Post is reporting that the FBI is investigating meetings that Trump’s son-in-law, Kushner, had in December 2016, with Russian officials. Kushner, a key White House adviser, had meetings late last year with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, and Russian banker Sergey Gorkov. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is willing to cooperate with federal investigators looking into ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, his attorney said.The statement from attorney Jamie Gorelick was issued Thursday amid reports that the FBI was investigating meetings Kushner had in December with Russian officials.“Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry,” the statement said.Meanwhile, the chairman of the House oversight committee asked the FBI to turn over more documents about former Director James Comey’s interactions with the White House and Justice Department, including materials dating back nearly four years to the Obama administration.The FBI and the oversight committee — as well as several other congressional panels — are looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible connections between Russia and the Trump campaign. Trump fired Comey May 9 amid questions about the FBI’s investigation, which is now being overseen by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director.NBC News and The Washington Post first reported that the FBI’s ongoing investigation includes a look at Kushner, which would place the probe inside the White House.Kushner, a key White House adviser, had meetings late last year with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, and Russian banker Sergey Gorkov.The Post story cited anonymous “people familiar with the investigation,” who said the FBI investigation does not mean that Kushner is suspected of a crime.Earlier Thursday, House oversight committee chairman Jason Chaffetz told acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that he wants records of Comey’s contacts with the White House and Justice Department dating to September 2013, when Comey was sworn in as FBI director under President Barack Obama.In a letter to McCabe, Chaffetz said he is seeking to review Comey’s memos and other written materials so he can “better understand” Comey’s communications with the White House and attorney general’s office.Chaffetz, R-Utah, previously requested Comey’s recent memos about his private contacts with Trump. But the bureau told him Thursday it could not yet turn them over because of Mueller’s probe.Chaffetz, who said last week he has his “subpoena pen” ready to force Comey or the FBI to turn over the documents, told McCabe that “Congress and the American public have a right and a duty to examine this issue independently of the special counsel’s investigation.”He added, in a thinly veiled threat, “I trust and hope you understand this and make the right decision — to produce these documents to the committee immediately and on a voluntary basis.”Chaffetz’s letter comes a month before he is scheduled to leave office after abruptly announcing his resignation earlier this year. He canceled a hearing scheduled Wednesday after Comey declined to testify.Assistant FBI Director Gregory Brower told Chaffetz on Thursday the agency is evaluating his request and will update him as soon as possible.Some Republican members of Congress have pressured Chaffetz to step down from the Comey probe, saying it should be led by someone who will remain in Congress.Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is considered the front-runner to replace Chaffetz as oversight chair. Gowdy led a special House panel that spent more than two years investigating the deadly 2012 attacks at a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
Computer generated images (CGI) and 3D animation have injected a whole new dimension in movies. The concept of animation and CGI to create visual effects is not new, but post Avatar, the use of this technology has been visible abundantly. It created a whole new standard for visual effects in the movie industry. Extensive use of CGI can be witnessed in movies like Life of Pi, Lord of the Rings series, Harry Potter series, John Carter, Adventures of Tintin and most recently The Jungle Book. The technology not only helps to create realistic accidents, or stunts but also makes one believe in the existence of blue-beings on another planet who resemble real humans on earth! Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“It is a good opportunity for CG artists as they get greater chances and good pay packs. But personally I feel that the growing focus on CG and VFX have diluted the themes and stories in movies these days. Recently released The Jungle Book also seems to be a portfolio of CG and VFX, rather than an entertaining movie for children,” says Bhaswar Bhattacharya, professor of Animation and Graphic Design at NSHM Knowledge Campus, Kolkata.The boons of performance capture or motion capture and skull caps have actually enabled animated creatures to give realistic facial expressions in movies. This not only makes the animated creature look smarter but also makes one believe in the scenes onscreen. The realistic facial expressions in Avatar had been achieved through skull caps fitted tightly over the heads of the characters and cameras attached directly in front of them. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“Mocap is done through the use of sensors on a real character’s body, tracing the body movements and actions for the animated character in a movie or video game,” said animation student Abhishek Bhattacharjee. When asked about the career prospects in the field of CGI animation in cinema, Abhishek added, “With every passing year, more and more movies are coming out with extensive use of VFX and 3D animation. Therefore the future holds good for students learning this subject, as the industry seems to be demanding more interested and specialised artists for CGI works. Not only movies but also the gaming industry is in high demand for animation artists. Basically the career prospect is growing.” Rajnikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan has been the only Indian movie based on motion capture till date. Several Indian films, mostly South Indian films have been using CGI extensively for the past few years; one of the best examples would be Baahubali. Not only movies, but also most of the video games are based on motion capture. This technology is used for numerous reasons- to recreate massive accident or destruction scenes, to create imaginary and different looking beings, to create real animals and make the audience believe all of these with minute details of wet skin/fur, wrinkles, morsels of destroyed articles etc.The use of computer graphics dates back to the early 1940s, with the first use of chroma screen. Back then it was considered to be a magical effect, while now it is extremely common and user-friendly. With the advent of time and fast growing technology, photorealism, 3D animation, CGI and motion capture stepped in and made today’s movie industries across the world the way it is today.
Windsor Secondary School’s ‘Class of 1976’ held a 40-year matric reunion last night (Friday) at Mount View Lodge, where the ex-pupils enjoyed the company of not just their friends but their educators as well.The evening started off with the ladies and gentlemen having some time to ‘catch up’ before the programme began. The programme for the evening featured fun activities that took everybody back to their final year at school.One of the educators even read out a register (roll call) and the ‘students’ had to make sure the teacher heard them say, “Present, sir”.An identification game that led to a walk on the red carpet was played, showing pictures of what everyone looked like back in high school. This resulted in much amusement all round! Speeches, on the other hand, brought tears to some of the ex-Windsorians’ eyes and a symbolic lighting of candles paid tribute to those who have since passed on.40 years after matriculating, these not-so-young high school students had a really beautiful evening!DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

CHLA is the first clinical site to offer the app, which is now available for free to any patient.Physicians use a growing array of diagnostic imaging equipment, such magnetic resonance (MR), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound and X-rays. Due to the massive size of the digital files, remote sharing of these medical images with patients or other clinicians has been very difficult. Patients have had to ask their radiologist to transfer medical images to a CD, then pick up these medical records in person and deliver them to a referring physician, when necessary – a very time-consuming and cumbersome process.With ImageInbox, the large data files (for example, a typical MR image is about 500 MB in size) are encrypted and stored securely on a patient’s personal cloud-based system, which can also be accessed at no charge.“The system is fully protected and private,” said Stephan G. Erberich, Ph.D., director of biomedical information at The Saban Research Institute of CHLA. Erberich and Marvin D. Nelson, M.D., chair of the Department of Radiology at CHLA – both also professors at Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California – are co-founders of NexGenic, the company that developed ImageInbox. They created this first-of-its-kind app to improve the patient experience and provide assurance to both doctors and patients that healthcare information is available at the point of care.“It allows parents to own – and have immediate access to – their child’s imaging medical records,” said Erberich.Lee Daly’s daughter, Alexandra, was treated at CHLA for several years, where brain surgeons performed three craniotomies. The family later moved to Oregon where, at age 19, Alexandra exhibited mysterious symptoms that worried her family and new doctors.Daly said she found it nearly impossible to obtain her daughter’s early brain scans to share with the neurosurgeons at Oregon Health and Science University Medical Center (OHSU), so they could compare the large mass they were now seeing on Alexandra’s tonsil with images of the brain-stem bleed she had experienced as a child. Facing exploratory surgery for her daughter, since OHSU were unable to compare their images to earlier ones, Daly reached out to Nelson and his team for help to quickly obtain Alexandra’s previous CT scans and MRIs from CHLA.“We were one of the first families to use ImageInbox in an emergency situation, and it was an absolute life saver,” she said. Alexandra’s imaging records from CHLA showed doctors in Oregon that the mass they were seeing on their scans was actually an abscess that had been there for many years, and not a tumor.“If we hadn’t been able to get these images quickly, my daughter would have faced unnecessary, invasive and potentially dangerous surgery,” Daly said.She and Alexandra now have the imaging records stored on their personal cloud storage and accessible on their smartphones; the information is at their fingertips should they ever need it. “I’m all for this and think we should all be the holders of our own medical records,” Lee said, adding that as people move, or even need medical assistance while traveling, “you just never know when an emergency will occur.”The app makes care more affordable—for patients, who can avoid having duplicate scans done when they switch healthcare providers; and for hospitals, that can readily exchange medical images electronically, directly with the patient, instead of using older, more expensive technologies like CDs to store and share the data.“This also means the children can avoid unnecessary radiation exposure that can occur with repeating tests,” said Nelson. “Importantly, their families will have these records, even multi-dimensional images like MRIs or 3-D CT, if and when they need them, anywhere in the world with internet access.”For more information: www.chla.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Remote Viewing Systems | June 04, 2019 Client Outlook’s eUnity Smartviewer Selected by Duke University Health System Client Outlook Inc. announced that Duke University Health System has implemented eUnity for enterprise viewing… read more Feature | Information Technology | July 02, 2019 | By Jeff Zagoudis Mobile Device App Viewing in Radiology Mo… read more News | PACS | May 22, 2019 Brazil’s Santa Casa Hospital System Chooses Carestream for Unified Diagnostic Workflow Santa Casa de Misericordia has selected Carestream to replace its legacy diagnostic workflow technology across all… read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | May 22, 2019 Philips Lumify Earns U.S. Army Airworthiness Certification Philips announced that Philips Lumify, a point-of-care ultrasound device, has earned the U.S. Army Airworthiness… read more

Dylan’s restored basement tapes with The Band set for debut Singer-songwriter Kevin Johansen makes everyone feel good in Costa Rica debut $100,000 for a 3-day pass to the Grateful Dead’s final shows After Stevie Wonder won the Grammy for album of the year two years in a row (for “Innervisions” in 1974 and “Fulfillingness’ First Finale” in 1975), there was great anticipation for his follow-up, the double album “Songs in the Key of Life,” released in late 1976.It lived up to expectations. The sprawling, ambitious work dabbled in jazz, balladry, funk, social commentary and the music of Africa. It also spawned a number of hits, including a few that were never released as singles.Now Wonder is revisiting the timeless album in its entirety, 38 years after its release, showcasing it on a national tour of the United States he’s calling the “Songs in the Key of Life Performance.”There might be time for a few other Wonder hits, but “Songs in the Key of Life” is so lengthy that there may not be time for much else.

eClosing Pilot Partners Unveil Digital Closing Solutions Months after partnering up as part of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) pilot eClosing program, real estate tech firm Pavaso and Utah-based lender Mountain America Credit Union announced that they have successfully pared the mortgage closing process down to a matter of minutes.Collaborating with Mountain America and several title companies, Pavaso says it has implemented two digital closing solutions, each built on top of its own platform and designed to “fill critical gaps that previously kept eClosings from wide-spread adoption in the marketplace.”The first solution, Digital Close, allows all closing participants—including consumers—to collaborate and complete tasks in a workflow manner. It also includes educational materials to review prior to closing and records which documents and materials were viewed and acknowledged by the borrower, thus getting them more engaged.The second solution, Signing Table, is a Windows 8 application accessed by everyone at the closing table. With “click to sign” functionality and quality control mechanisms, it aims to reduce errors and improve mortgage quality.Since the launch of the two solutions, Pavaso and Mountain America say more than half of their closings have occurred in less than 30 minutes, and two have happened in less than half that time.”It’s incredible,” said Amy Moser, VP of mortgage services at Mountain America. “We had to verify the times with the escrow officers because we didn’t believe it at first. Digital closings are proving that secure delivery of documents prior to closing is not only convenient to our members, but extremely effective.”With nearly half a year left until integrated mortgage disclosure rules go into effect, Pavaso and Mountain America say the platform and new solutions prove that the mortgage industry is capable of modernizing and throwing out the old, inefficient processes in a compliant, consumer-friendly way.Mark McElroy, president and CEO of Pavaso, said the digital closing solutions are just the beginning.”We’re looking forward to a very successful relationship with Mountain America,” McElroy said. “Especially since we’ve only scratched the surface of what the platform can do for them. When the first mortgage closed on the platform with them, we knew it was the moment that this industry’s future started.”He continued, “It’s only one step for a lender, but a quantum leap for an entire industry.” Share Company News Consumer Financial Protection Bureau eClosings Mountain America Credit Union Pavaso RESPA TILA 2015-01-27 Tory Barringer in Headlines, News, Technology January 27, 2015 580 Views
For the last six months there have been two storylines that have dominated when it comes to the Arizona Cardinals. Will they find a franchise quarterback and can they sign Larry Fitzgerald to a contract extension? It seems like they’ve answered the first — at least in some people’s minds — and a resolution to the second may be right around the corner.Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter was at Cards camp in Flagstaff earlier this week and he found out some very interesting information as it pertains to the team’s Pro Bowl receiver. His contract expires at the end of the season, but the sides are discussing a new deal that would keep him around for at least another six years. Fitzgerald, who has a “no franchise” clause in his current deal, has put a self-imposed deadline of Sept. 4 — the final day of the preseason — for getting something done. After that, he says he won’t discuss an extension until after the season.While we all knew about the lack of a franchise tag — and not because Adam Schefter reported it on Monday — the self-imposed deadline of the Sunday before the regular season starts and a six-year deal are something new. It may seem like a daunting task for Rod Graves and the club’s front office to get a deal done in the next three weeks while preparing for the season opener but it sounds like both sides are making progress according to Trotter.Fitzgerald told him the two sides are “not too far away” on reaching an agreement.While that sounds good and Fitz has given every indication he wants to stay in the Valley, the clock is now officially ticking. If the Cardinals don’t want to see the face of their franchise hit the open market and possibly fly the coop, they have just three weeks to make him an offer he can’t refuse. If not, they’ll have a whole new round of questions and storylines to deal with. All of which will likely be a distraction to a team trying to bounce back from a horrible season.
