The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo It’s hard to believe that Patrick Peterson is still only 25 years of age.He’s got five full NFL seasons, five trips to the Pro Bowl, three First Team All-Pro nods and two trips to the playoff on his résumé before he turns 26 on July 11.That’s more than most players accomplish in a full career, but Peterson isn’t satisfied heading into 2016. Far from it, in fact.“The ultimate goal, and that’s to put a ring on it,” Peterson told Doug and Wolf Thursday morning on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM when asked about what he wants to accomplish next. “Obviously, that’s a team deal but at the same time, there’s nothing better than winning a championship in your profession. That’s the ultimate goal right now.”But Peterson sneaked in another item on his to-do list, too.“Obviously to continue to do things that I’ve been doing in my young career to put on a gold jacket.”Pretty lofty aspirations, indeed.Peterson has established himself as one of the premier defenders in the game, but believes he can get even better.“My goal is, coming into each and every year, is to get better,” he said. “I never want to be the same as I was the year before. I tell the guys this all the time, it’s all about getting better at your craft.“If it’s being patient, if it’s being more hands-on at the line of scrimmage, being more explosive out of your break. I have to find something to get better at.”So what does Peterson need to do to continue that improvement in 2016?“Sometimes, I had some technical problems. Sometimes I was in press and didn’t get my hands on receivers,” he said. “I didn’t quite get my percentage of what I was looking for — I want to get my hands on receivers 85 percent of the time.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said his major weakness lies in not knowing how to make money He also disclosed that he even borrowed money to build his three houses in Daura Abuja and Kaduna The President made this known while speaking on his assets during an Interview with Sun Newspaper According to him “When Murtala/Obasanjo regime came they made sure that certain grades of public officers must declare their assets when they assumed that office and they must declare when they were leaving So when I was sworn in as governor of North East I declared my assets “I declared surprisingly even the number of my cows then Even if they were supposed to be producing every year but I declared them the time I was there And when I was leaving governorship I became petroleum minister “When I was leaving to go to War College I declared my assets I could recall General Jemibewon then was the Adjutant-General of the Army He rang me and said he was sending me asset declaration form that I must fill it sign it before I left for the United States And I did “General Jemibewon is still alive And when I became head of state eventually I declared my assets again “So if you people are serious and interested about political officers becoming multi-billionaires you can find out from Murtala downwards And those of us who were not very good in making money you should pity us “Everybody likes money but I am not very good at making money Let me put it that way I borrowed from the banks to build the house in Daura and the one in Abuja that you mentioned and the one in Kano The bank then was Barclays now Union Bank Kaduna State or North Central then housing scheme and the Federal Mortgage Bank for the house I am in and AIB which was I think terminated by Central Bank So when you go through the records you find out that the houses I built I borrowed from there” Ive said most of what I needed to about now ex-mobile game Flappy Bird because saying much more starts to look like a dissertation on the skeletomuscular parameters of Miley Cyrus stage maneuvers I mostly hope the game’s creator Nguyen Ha Dong is able to find some kind of respite from the spotlight which reportedly drove him to yank the game off Apple’s and Google’s mobile stores this weekend But I want to add a few more things before we bid Nguyen’s little bolt from the blue farewell (until the invasion of me-too clones arrives) Not about how much the game supposedly made per day in ad revenue or whether Nguyen used bots to grease Flappy Bird‘s uncanny luge ride to the iTunes Store’s app throne or whether someone else (Apple Nintendo) applied pressure of whatever sort to hasten the game’s demise or what ultimately prompted Nguyen to mysteriously yank the game most of which detour into feckless speculation I want to write instead a little more about the game itself because Ive read some amusingly wrongheaded defenses of its mechanics defenses telegraphing their allegiance to nostalgia if nothing else But I should probably review how the game works before we go any further since some of you haven’t played it and may never at this point short of buying it off eBay for crazy-bucks (or if you’re an Android user downloading the APK file from an APK host site) In brief Flappy Bird is about finessing a bird’s flightpath left to right while avoiding no-frills obstacles: basically the cartoonish green pipes from Super Mario Bros on infinite recycle The bird flaps its wings each time you tap the screen and otherwise nosedives like a rocket-propelled bomb Touch the pipes which extend from the top and bottom of the screen creating a tiny space for passage and you fail Touch the ground and you fail The pipes change height (and therein lies most of the difficulty) but the distance between them never varies That distance is relatively small while the distance the bird travels with each flap — as well as the speed at which it plummets — is considerable making repeat navigation between the pipes ridiculously hard Those are the rules Like an endless runner the game has no end There are no levels no extra lives no continues and no finish lines You tap to start then remain aloft for as long as you can The closest thing to performance metrics is a pipes-cleared counter that feeds a public scoreboard as well as gold silver or bronze medals for clearing 10 20 or 30 pipes (the medals reset each time you restart the game) I came close to snatching silver (20 pipes) early last week before throwing in the towel at which point I removed the game from my iPhone When Nguyen informed the world that he planned to retract his little wunder-game on Sunday nothing impelled me to pull it down for posterity So why was Flappy Bird such a crummy game as quick-play games go Imagine an endless runner whose first leap took a dozen tries (and exponentially more to make the next dozen) Imagine a platformer with nearly-impossible-to-land-on platforms Imagine Pac-Man with twice as many ghosts or levels a fraction as big Imagine Angry Birds if the only way to pass a level was to get all the stars and on the first try I realize Flappy Bird isn’t about seeing the sights or amassing content that feeds other systems However an essential part of better than merely compulsive game design — as a guy like Shigeru Miyamoto proved time and again with games like Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong — is striking the right balance between failure and success (including how those states fall along a play session’s timeline) Flappy Bird fails that test in my view by eschewing progressive play mechanics — call it an acclimation period to acquaint you with the game’s physics — for mere difficulty which is both immediate and crushing Any game can be sadistically difficult Just put dozens of Hammer Bros at the start of Super Mario Bros or make every jump all but un-make-able from the outset Better games teach you their limits (as well as yours skill-wise) gradually Flappy Bird can’t be bothered with any of that: It’s as one-note about its one-noteness as this tune goes There’s a certain flavor of old-school to that sort of punitive minimalism sure but in saying so we gloss over the fact that the old-school games we’re probably thinking about often worked as such out of technical necessity not because gaming’s grandparents were somehow wiser about video game design If I revisit those games it’s for nostalgic reasons not to celebrate their brilliant mechanical brutality Sadism in games has its place you’ll brook no argument from me but I need more than mere sadism to ring my compulsion bell (more than a few times anyway) Some of you will disagree and that’s fine because in the end we’re just arguing for what we want to see more — or less — of And when a game like Flappy Bird emerges to dominate the conversation unexpectedly it gives us a chance to MORE: The History of Video Game Consoles – Full Write to Matt Peckham at mattpeckham@timecomKanye West released his seventh studio album The Life of Pablo on Feb 14 Normally a big album release would be followed mainly by touring and promotion But thats not enough for Kanyemore than a month later hes still working on the album Most recently he updated the song "Wolves" and added an extra track on March 15 Thats possible because the album is accessible exclusively through the streaming service Tidal (legally at least) Over the last month Kanye has tweaked and tucked uploading the revisions to Tidal and announcing them on Twitter Here he is announcing the "Wolves" change on the 15th: Kanyes fast-and-loose approach to versioning started well before the album release and has a lot in common with how software developers approach their products Just after he released the single "No More Parties in LA" in January West pulled the track and uploaded a new version in what the LA Times Dexter Thomas called raps introduction to the day one patch Treating music like updatable software is only possible because of the technological shift from physical media to downloads and now streaming as the default way of listening to music (Kanye has said definitively that The Life of Pablo will "never be for sale" anywhere but Tidal) And it has a lot of potential benefits for artists For one it helps frustrate music pirates at least half a million of whom have grabbed some version of The Life of Pablo But those versions are no longer the "real" album and in fact there may never be a final version any more than theres a final version of Windows Music versioning might also allow artists to respond to fan feedback on new releasesthough Kanye seems to be driven mainly by his own perfectionist muse Its also possible that exclusive frequently-changing music could help make streaming services more viable as businesses by letting them offer something no download or CD can But that may be asking too much as our Mathew Ingram has pointed out streaming music is a terrible business

the hazar have been pushed back by a minority of badu warriors linked to Afghanistan Related News My contention that Muslim extremism springs from a process of retribalisation of society may have seemed far-fetched A kind of perverse radicalism emanating from non-urban elements forces Muslims to adopt extremism The greatest Muslim sociologist Ibn Khaldun thought Muslim civilisation was destroyed by the rise of “badu” tribes invading the cities and laying them waste The Arabs following Salafi doctrines are offended by the following quote from his book The Muqaddimah: “It is noteworthy how civilisation always collapsed in places the badu took over and conquered and how such settlements were depopulated and laid in ruin” The city-dwelling Muslims or “hazar” were used to multiple ways of thinking and tolerated difference of opinion Ibn Khaldun thought the tribals were bound together by their “asabiya” (group feeling) and were united in making war on the “soft” city My dictionary defines the badu as “desert-dweller” One good example of “retribalisation” can be seen in the recent histoy of Kuwait where two warring sects of Islam Shia and Sunni lived in peace till the Salafi-badu challenged the state and forced the moderate Sunni Kuwaitis to adopt his tribal extremism Kuwait was the only Gulf state where the ruling Sheikh was enlightened enough to start up an elected parliament In Kuwait’s population of 13 million the Shia are 30 per cent They were integrated enough to form a small upwardly mobile commercial class well-set in the establishment particularly the police force The 50-seat unicameral parliament elected every four years was dominated by moderates till the onset of the Arab Spring in 2011 Share This Article Related Article When Kuwait was invaded by Saddam Hussein from neighbouring Iraq in 1990 the Shia gave a good account of themselves by defending Kuwait which made the ruling Al Sabah family beholden to them But what happened in Iraq subsequently in the form of persecution of the Sunni minority under PM Maliki brought on Sunni reaction in neighbouring states As the Sunni reaction mounted the Kuwaiti Shia also started linking themselves to the new religious leadership under the grand ayatollah of Iraq Al Sistani The rise of the Hezbollah in Lebanon and its confrontation with neighbouring Israel inspired the Kuwaiti Shia often leading to sectarian contacts unheard-of in earlier times The moderation of the sects in parliament and the benign temperament of the ruling Sheikh postponed any confrontation while the region was clearly moving towards sectarian conflict However trouble was brewing in the Kuwaiti desert The badu tribes practising hard Islam in their isolation were slowly moving to the cities From 2006 Sabah Al-Sabah the prime minister from the ruling family pursued moderate policies on social matters women’s rights and media freedom This didn’t go down well with the badu who grew more and more opposed to the hazar and the Shia particularly the Sunni hazar’s good relations with the well-to-do Shia community In Pakistan the hazar have been pushed back by a minority of badu warriors linked to Afghanistan Once again like Kuwait there is a Saudi nexus which pushes their hard Deobandi Islam to Salafism The feeding machine is not badu coming in from outside but Pakistan’s madrassa system

final essay we turn to some ideas on what India can do to use the favourable trends catalogued in the second of our articles to address the challenges outlined in the first Since it has taken decades for Indias current predicament to come into beingescaping it fully will also take decades India needs a strategy for the next generationbased on the conditions that will exist over the next generation Saying that a democracy needs a long-term strategy is not an exercise in futilityeven though the political challenge of working with millions of voters to produce a relatively steady course of action for decades seems impossible Yet both tasks have been accomplished India did build a nuclear arsenal and a national space programme and a metro in Delhiall of which took decades of hard and steady workby both national parties who were willing to cede daily management to specialist organisations tasked for these purposes Equally to the pointwe will be making choices based on assumptions about the future whether we like it or not When we buy military systems and train officers todaywe make decisions that determine what capabilities we will have 20 years hence Our only choice is whether to do it thoughtfully or in response to the pressures of the moment Clearlythe foremost task is for India to maximise its potential national power by maximising its economic growth Many thoughtful Indians appear to believe that the distribution of national income is at least as important as its total quantumbut global economic history reveals that for a country at Indias level of wealth this is an illusory trade-off more is better in reducing povertyenhancing social peace and securing international peace What needs to be done on this front isat some levelwell understood and discussed by fine Indian economists based in India and abroad and we do not wish to belabour issues that must be foremost in the minds of thinking Indians during the current economic slowdown The next task is to focus on the narrow military asymmetry issues Here there are issues of defence managementstrategychoice of hardware and total spendingroughly in that order of priority The single most important thing India could do is to make the China problem much more salient in its defence management processes and the object of an integrated effort Precisely what bureaucratic mechanism is required is beyond our competence to prescribebut it is clear that if a dedicated group of talented military officers and civil servants under the highest levels of political supervision are tasked with improving Indias defence posture vis-à-vis Chinamuch could be accomplished quickly after allIndias military performance underwent a sea change in a short three years after the 1962 defeat Such an effort would then take into account the growth in Chinese capabilities and the trends in military technology we discussed earlier to update Indian strategy vis-à-vis China An important component of this shift would be to adopt an anti-accessarea denial strategy in Tibetwhere China is dependent on a limited number of roadsrail lines and runways All of these are relatively vulnerable as fixed targets for modern precision strike systems The same set of tools should be employed to make it harder for Chinese naval power to operate in the Indian Oceanmuch as China is making it hard for the US to operate off its coast Such an approach would be quicker and cheaper than setting out to build a competing Indian surface presence in the Indian Ocean FinallyChinese strategic doctrine emphasises speed and surprise and thus Indian counter doctrine should emphasise paranoia and flexibility Tactically speaking a mountainous border is good terrain to defendbut it still leaves room for strategic surprises for instancean attack through Bhutan IdeallyIndias military should constantly think through such novel scenarios as military capabilities in China evolve and fine tune the mix of Indian forcesfixed and mobileto be able to respond to various contingencies and go on the tactical offence when needed Other strategic surprises can involve the use of precision weapons against Indian assets and command and control facilities far from the border zone Indeedhardening Indian assets against such precision attacks should be accorded the highest priority India needs an urgent effort to deal with its cyber vulnerabilities this is a problem more in need of attention than large sums of money (by the standards of military spending) FinallyIndia should aim at keeping its defence spending at or above the 3 per cent of GDP on defence recommended by Indian strategic experts It has been noted by Indian strategists such as Admiral Raman Puri that compared with IndiasChinese hardware costs are lower because they typically involve domestic production While this certainly argues in favour of seeking to maximise the indigenous component of Indias defence acquisitionsthe current policy based around foreign purchases tied to escalating offsets (compensating purchases) is seriously flawed The current policy neither furthers the goal of Indias acquiring the best available Western military technology (access to which is an area of advantage to India over China) nor of building up Indias own defence productionas the offset purchases have no meaningful connection to technology niches where India has a comparative advantagesuch as in equipment of use to other Asian countries In principlethere exists a niche where India could respond to shrinking Western defence budgets by creating an outsourcing defense industry driven by the private sectorbut the structure of Indian processes currently precludes such a response Let us turn now to the scope for India to cooperate more actively with other Asian countries concerned with maintaining a favourable balance of power and with the US Much unofficial interaction proceeds with the assumption that there is a shared problem to be managed Yetofficial Indian positions as well as semi-official thinking as recently on display in the Non-Alignment 20 document seem still paralysed by the curious notion that Indias challenge is somehow to triangulate between China and the US and above all to avoid offending China If India were happy with an equilibrium in its dealings with China this might make some sensebut India is neither happy nor is the relationship in equilibriumso it is hard to understand what India gains by self-censorship The evidence is that what cannot be said eventually cannot be dealt with in any rational fashion Indian policymakers should take heart the contest is not yet overand in any case the option of accommodating to Chinese power will always be availableand thus there is no need to exercise it prematurely The hope of the world is that Chinas rise will not endanger peace and stability but instead bring back to the frontiers of human accomplishment one of the greatest civilisations to grace the planet With this ChinaIndia must of course engageeconomically and culturally HoweverChina is also a nation-state with definite views on the international order and it would be irresponsible for India not to take steps to ensure that a Beijing that decides to challenge the status quo faces the steepest odds The virtue of the measures described above is that if they work as plannedthey will render themselves obsolescent Moreoverthe costs of adopting them are much lower than the costs of inviting aggression by failing to compete Deal is president and CEO of the Long Term Strategy Groupa

KONIKKARA | Mumbai | Published: March 20 2017 2:34 am The Maharishi Karve Marg in South Mumbai Express Photo Top News Maharishi Dhondo Keshav Karve was 104 years old when he passed away in 1962 Before that to mark his centenary year the government released postage stamps bearing his visage and bestowed him with the nation’s highest civilian honour the Bharat Ratna In another tribute to the social reformer’s long and illustrious life a road stretching across 5 kilometres in South Mumbai was named “Maharishi Karve Marg” after independence Formerly known as Queen’s Road the stretch is extensive enough to have Churchgate Marine Lines and Charni Road railway stations fall within its spread housing a diverse section of the city While a part of it remains staunchly colonial other areas have made way for modern Mumbai’s construction rush The section along Oval Maidan is a picture postcard painted in history Though the nomenclature “Queen’s Road” no longer stands the nameplates and the art deco architecture of the buildings overlooking sprawling grounds betray their continuing affinity to a pre-1947 past With names such as “Windsor House” “Queen’s Court” “Fairlawn” the mansions of yore now have practising lawyers and doctors as residents In a city notorious for its fast-depleting green cover the stretch is densely leafy The trees coupled with the understated charm of the buildings could conjure an image of calmness but with the city’s busiest railway stations and establishments of officialdom located in this road’s vicinity tranquillity is not one of its virtues Beyond this stretch the road has retained little that can evoke the aura of heritage The portion at Churchgate is dotted by saree showrooms Interestingly Kala Niketan still identifies its address as “Queen’s Road” on the hoardings displayed outside its store The road was named Maharishi Karve in a tribute to his lifelong commitment to social reforms which particularly concerned women’s rights Born in 1858 in Ratnagiri district Karve’s childhood experiences shaped his outlook as a social worker He was married at the age of 14 to Radhabhai Less than two decades later he lost her to complications during childbirth He emphasised his advocacy of widow remarriage by marrying Godubai who had lost her husband at the age of 8 “Hingne Stree Shikshan Samstha” an initiative started by Maharishi Karve to shelter and educate widows is now known as “Maharishi Karve Stree Shikshan Samstha” and has affiliated campuses in different parts of Maharashtra His role as the founder of the first women’s university in South East Asia is the most revered aspect of his legacy Established in 1916 the SNDT University made its humble beginnings in Pune with a college comprising five students “Due to lack of financial resources it was difficult to develop the college into a university Maharishi Karve then approached Sir Vithaldas Thackersey He donated Rs 15 lakh It was only because of this that the university became a reality” says its Vice-Chancellor Professor Shashikala Wanjari Sir Vithaldas Thackersey was a businessman in the erstwhile province of Bombay The university was soon named after his mother Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey and went on to be known by its acronym “SNDT” In 1936 the headquarters of the university was set up in Churchgate Mumbai Not surprisingly its campus in Pune is located on Karve Road “His legacy was about empowering women He wanted women to be educationally strong and stand on their own feet Even today it is so tough to work in the area of women’s issues And if you go back to the way of life 100 years ago you would know how worse it was” Prof Wanjari says Retired Naval Officer Vikram Karve has fleeting memories of time spent with his renowned great-grandfather during the latter’s sunset years “I remember visiting Maharishi Karve a number of times in his home at Hingne now called Karve Nagar in Pune in the Hingne Stree Shikshan Samstha he had started Since he was more than 100 years old he would sit on an armchair and play with me” Karve says Vikram Karve spent six years living in Empress Court a building which is a part of the heritage precinct on Maharishi Karve Marg Currently a resident of Pune the descendant often visits his former home located on the road An accidental symbolism continues to be at play near Charni Road where Maharishi Karve Marg merges
