UN food agency to double the number of Iraqi refugees in Syria

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced that it will provide assistance to more than double the number of Iraqi refugees in Syria it is currently helping and called on donors to support the operation.WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran, who met recently with senior Syrian officials and groups of Iraqi refugees in Damascus, warned that despite the efforts of the host Government and donors, “more Iraqi women, children and men are unable to meet their basic food needs and social support systems in Syria are being overstretched.”About a third of Iraqi respondents in a recent UN assessment said they skipped one meal a day to feed their children, while nearly 60 per cent resort to buying less expensive foods, often less nutritious, to cope with the food prices that have increased dramatically.Based on this assessment, WFP decided to expand its assistance from the current caseload of 51,000 people to cover as many as 114,000 of the most needy Iraqis in Syria by April 2008. The beneficiaries will receive a monthly food ration made up of rice, vegetable oil and lentils.But the agency has not even yet received enough funding for the current caseload; its $5.6 million operation is facing a shortfall of 38 per cent.“We appeal to donors for more support to help the vulnerable among the Iraqis in Syria live with dignity until they can go home safely,” Ms. Sheeran said.Meanwhile, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq Staffan de Mistura met yesterday with Iran’s Ambassador to Baghdad to discuss the need for Iraq’s ongoing and positive engagement with Iraq as well as with its other neighbours. Mr. de Mistura and Ambassador Hassan Kazemi Qumi also talked about possible increased support by Iran for Iraqi reconstruction under the International Reconstruction Fund Facility for Iraq. During the meeting, Mr. Qumi raised the issue of the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran (PMoI) and whether the UN has a position on the legality of its members in Iraq. While not commenting on the legal status issue, Mr. de Mistura replied that he has no plans to meet with the organization. 3 December 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced that it will provide assistance to more than double the number of Iraqi refugees in Syria it is currently helping and called on donors to support the operation. read more

Jarvis man charged in connection to Port Burwell human remains discovery

Man charged with ‘indignity’ to Port Burwell body, but OPP still say little Criminologist slams OPP for ‘retrograde’ handling of death probe A body. A discarded fridge. A beach town on edge as tourist season looms Police lift body, refrigerator from beach near Port Burwell   We want to hear from you Send us opinions, comments and other feedback. E-mail your letter to: lfp.letters@sunmedia.ca (no attachments please) Or go to lfpress.com/letters. Letters should be kept to 150 words. A 22-year-old who worked for his father at a Simcoe hobby shop and lives not far away is the accused at the heart of a grisly mystery that’s kept Port Burwell on edge for more than a week since human remains and a fridge were found in the Lake Erie village.Samuel Waters of Jarvis, a village about 20 kilometres from Simcoe, is charged with an indignity to a human body in connection to the remains found near the base of a cliff, with the appliance, overlooking the lake in Port Burwell, an hour southeast of London in Elgin County.Under the Criminal Code, an indignity to a human body means improperly or indecently interfering with a dead body or remains.Monday, police wouldn’t confirm they searched a Simcoe hobby and bike shop, South Coast Hobbies & Rides, where Waters works, the night before and the day they announced the charge against him last Friday.Alerted by a citizen a week ago, police used a helicopter to lift both a body and a refrigerator off the steep Lake Erie bluff.Tight-lipped police have said little about their investigation, including whose remains were found and whether they’re conducting a homicide probe. The OPP’s criminal investigation branch is probing the discovery with the Elgin OPP.With so much still publicly unknown about the case, attention is turning to the young man facing the indignity charge, who remains in custody and is to appear in court in St. Thomas for a bail hearing Wednesday.While little is known about the man, conflicting impressions of him — ranging from helpful, to abrupt — emerged Monday.Waters, one downtown Simcoe merchant said, worked for his father, Chad Waters, at the Simcoe store, which specializes in all-terrain vehicles, e-bikes, dirt bikes, go-carts and radio-controlled merchandise such as model planes.The merchant, who did not want to be identified, but whose store is in the same plaza as the hobby shop, described Samuel Waters as “an odd character” whom she said came across to her as “cold” and “rude.”He was “not very friendly” when packages meant for him were left at her store instead, she said.Police, she said, were asking her for video surveillance footage, but she said her store’s equipment wasn’t working.No one answered the phone at the hobby store over the weekend or on Monday, a scheduled day closed for the business.The merchant said she’d heard of the Port Burwell discovery and found it “very scary” that someone she knows is charged.One frequent hobby shop customer, who did not want to be identified, either, said he was taken aback by the charge against Waters, whom he described as a “a quiet, nice kid.” Photo of house where San Waters lives in Jarvis, Ont. Waters enjoys working with his father, rebuilding and selling old cars, including a jeep featured prominently on his Facebook page, he said.On the store’s website, another customer posted a favourable review: “Sam is very friendly and offers a wide range of hobby vehicles and services. Go check him out, he’s very good at what he does.”In Jarvis, no one answered the door at the home where court documents show Samuel Waters lives.Nearby residents in the small community, home to about 1,000 people, said they didn’t want to talk.“This neighbourhood is very, very tight,” Charmaine Ruckpaul, a 17-year resident, said. “It’s a great neighbourhood.”With files by Jane Sims, London Free PressHRivers@postmedia.comlbroadley@postmedia.comRelated read more

Ackmans Pershing Square seeks to replace Allergan directors in Valeant fight

by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 2, 2014 7:17 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – The largest shareholder at Allergan Inc. is seeking to replace a majority of directors at the Botox maker as part of a plan to back a proposed takeover by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (TSX:VRX).Pershing Square Capital Management, the investment firm headed by Bill Ackman, launched a call for a special meeting of shareholders at the U.S. company, which has been highly critical of Valeant and its takeover bid.“We think Allergan’s board and management are delaying the inevitable, we encourage them to negotiate with Valeant immediately,” Ackman told a conference call with financial analysts Monday.“If they negotiate immediately, a merger agreement could be signed in a week, this transaction could get done in a matter of months,” he said.The move by Pershing Square follows meetings it held last week with other large Allergan shareholders as well as hedge funds and risk-arbitrage investors, who combined with Ackman held more than half the shares in Allergan.“They believe the merger makes tremendous sense and it is a highly strategic transaction and creates enormous shareholder value,” Ackman said the investors told him.Allergan urged shareholders Monday to wait until the company’s board has made a recommendation before doing anything.“Under federal securities laws, Pershing Square and Valeant cannot solicit proxies from Allergan stockholders until Pershing Square and Valeant provide stockholders with definitive proxy solicitation materials,” the company said.On Friday, with the backing of Pershing Square, Valeant raised its stock-and-cash hostile offer to about US$180 per share, valuing Allergan at more than US$54 billion.The company has offered US$72 in cash and 0.83 of a Valeant share for each Allergan share, contingent on “good faith negotiations” of a merger agreement.Pershing Square also agreed to accept less than other shareholders in an effort to see the Valeant deal done. The investment firm will forgo any cash and receive 1.22659 Valeant shares for each Allergan share.“The only way we make back what we gave up is the scenario in which the stock price increases from $131 to $180 a share by the time the transaction closes. So either we’re dumb or we really believe in what we’re saying,” Ackman said.Allergan said it would carefully review the revised offer and pursue what it thought was the best interests of the company and all of its shareholders.The company has repeatedly raised concerns about Valeant’s business model and stock value and questioned its ability to find the $2.7 billion in cost savings it has promised if the deal is successful.BMO Capital Markets analyst Alex Arfaei suggested the new offer by Valeant “significantly” improves the odds the deal will be successful.“The 55 per cent premium offered, relative to the undisturbed price, will likely increase if the companies start negotiating as Valeant shares will likely rise, increasing the probability of a deal,” Arfaei wrote in a note to clients.“We believe it could have been triggered by the market’s negative reaction to the previous offer, feedback from Allergan shareholders, and/or new knowledge of a potential white knight, although this is unlikely.”Allergan shares closed up $4.79 at $172.25 on the New York Stock Exchange, while Valeant shares gained $2.96 to finish at $134.17.In Toronto, Valeant shares closed up $3.83 at C$146.17.

Liberals name fiveperson panel to overhaul mandate of National Energy Board

OTTAWA – The Liberal government has named a diverse, five-person panel to make recommendations on overhauling the national energy regulator.The group appointed Tuesday by Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr will examine the structure, role and mandate of the National Energy Board, which has become embroiled in controversy over its reviews of contested oil pipeline proposals.The panel is to report to Carr by March 31 — not by the Jan. 1 deadline initially announced by the government back in June when it made public the draft mandate for the NEB review.The Trudeau government announced last January that it was augmenting the existing oversight process for major energy projects, adding an examination of upstream greenhouse gas emissions and providing further public consultation in addition to the National Energy Board hearings.But a more fundamental restructuring of the board, which was first created in 1959, was promised by the government pending a wide-ranging public consultation by a panel of experts.“The panellists have maximum independence and liberty to be creative and I know they will be, by virtue of who they are and their disparate backgrounds,” Carr said in an interview.“So what we’re saying to them is, ‘Go recommend the best regulator in the world.’”The panel is co-chaired by Helene Lauzon, president of the Quebec business council on the environment, and former Liberal MP Gary Merasty, a Saskatchewan Cree who is president of Des Nedhe Development.There are three women and two indigenous persons on the five-member panel, which includes: David Besner, a chemical engineer who is chairman of the New Brunswick Energy Institute; Wendy Grant-John, a three-term chief of Vancouver’s Musqueam who is currently senior aboriginal adviser at Deloitte; and Brenda Kenny, the former president of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association.In the meantime, ongoing reviews of existing energy project bids continue amid great public turbulence.Carr has said a cabinet decision will come by mid-December on the proposed tripling of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby, B.C.The looming decision has spawned protest marches and sit-ins. The city of Vancouver and the Squamish First Nation have both filed legal challenges to the NEB’s conditional approval of the Trans Mountain expansion.The board’s examination of TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline, meanwhile, was temporarily put on hold this fall after the three panellists hearing the bid stepped down over an appearance of conflict of interest.Pipeline protesters say the Trans Mountain and Energy East reviews lack legitimacy.A release from the group Environmental Defence lauded the new panel Tuesday but said it shows why the two pipeline projects should be put on hold until the NEB is modernized.And Erin Flanagan of the Calgary-based Pembina Institute said “sustainability considerations” must be built into the board’s mandate so that any energy infrastructure approvals clearly fit within Canada’s climate change commitments under the international Paris Agreement.Carr responded that the additional measures announced last January for the two pipeline reviews help address “a process that many thought was flawed.”“When it’s time for government to make a decision, Canadians can honestly say they’ve had a chance to express themselves,” Carr said of the interim consultations.“We also know these are controversial decisions and we will not get unanimity in Canada. There are very strongly held views about the pace of development and not everyone is going to say, ‘This is what we wanted.’ But I hope most people will say that it was a reasonable way of going about making a tough and complex decision.”An omnibus bill in 2012 under the previous Conservative government legislated that NEB project appraisals take no longer than two years. It also placed environmental assessments under the board’s purview on the rationale of “one project, one review” and it gave cabinet the power to overrule the board if it rejected a project application.Early this year, a report from the federal commissioner of the environment found that the NEB did not properly follow up with pipeline companies after setting conditions on project approvals or after finding safety violations that needed redress.In her January report, Julie Gelfand wrote that the NEB “needs to do more to keep pace with the rapidly changing context in which it is operating.”— Follow @BCheadle on Twitter by Bruce Cheadle, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 8, 2016 2:45 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 9, 2016 at 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Liberals name five-person panel to overhaul mandate of National Energy Board read more

MARRAKECH UN conference spotlights water the first victim of climate change as

Collecting clean water in Badnoogo village, Burkina Faso. Photo: World Bank/Dominic Chavez In a first for United Nations climate change conferences, a special day was devoted to action on water issues, providing stakeholders gathered in Marrakech, Morocco, for the so-called ‘COP 22’ an opportunity spotlight water as a way of providing solutions to help implement the Paris Agreement.“Water is one of the most impacted resources, but water also provides solutions to these challenges,” stressed the President of the World Water Council, Benedito Braga, who said today in a news release issued by the meeting, formally known as the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).Water is critical for successful climate change mitigation, as many efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions depend on reliable access to water resources.The Action Day for Water is part of the Global Climate Action Agenda, an initiative of France and Morocco to boost cooperation between governments, cities, companies, investors and citizens on climate change.In an interview with the UN News Centre, Hakima El Haité, the Minister in charge of Environment of Morocco and one of the ‘Climate Champions’ tasked with carrying forward the Agenda, stressed the importance of including water in the discussions on climate change.“Water and climate [are] linked. At school, all of us studied the water cycle,” she said. “Water connects everything. To produce energy, some countries have 97 per cent renewable energy from water. So it affects everything. It is crucial for human development, it is crucial for education, it is crucial for health, it is crucial for stability and food security.” Ms. El Haité noted that the water community would like to be included in the discussions. She stressed that she and her fellow Climate Champion, Laurence Tubiana, the French Ambassador on climate change, would work to facilitate the dialogue between the [UNFCCC] parties and water stakeholders.Wednesday, the Moroccan Government and its partners launched a Blue Book on Water and Climate, which includes recommendations by the international water community. “Water is not only a problem but it is part of the solution,” said the Minister of Water of Morocco, Charafat Afailal, at a press conference, adding: “Water is a key factor in human development.” According to the Blue Book, only integrated and sustainable water management can help humankind meet the challenges related to water availability, extreme weather events and uncertainty about the resource. It recommends that water be recognized as the “first victim” of climate change and to initiate an action agenda for water.The Moroccan Government also launched the ‘Water for Africa’ initiative, with the support of the African Development Bank. It aims to render justice to the continent through the adoption of a specific action plan that will mobilize different international political, financial and institutional partners to improve water and sanitation services and management for those most affected by climate change.Seven of the 10 countries most threatened by climate change are in Africa. Water is the first sector through which the African population suffers from the impact of climate change. “Water is not only a story of adaptation, it is about development, it is about climate justice,” said Ms. El Haité. read more

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle mania as couple visit Brixton youth radio

first_imgAt first glance it may have seemed a world away from their normal Kensington Palace lives.But Prince Harry and Meghan Markle received the warmest of welcomes as they visited a Brixton community radio station, coming away with a host of new friends, an elaborate handshake, and no shortage of offers for their wedding DJ.The Prince and his fiance were left seeming overwhelmed by their reception, surrounded by screaming admirers as hundreds of Londoners turned out onto the cold streets to shout: “We love you.”At one point, the noise proved too much for even the experienced ears of Prince Harry, who exclaimed “it’s so loud” before encouraging Ms Markle to give fans another wave.The generosity of strangers in her new home was, Ms Markle told one member of the crowd, “incredibly kind”, as she disclosed she was, naturally, “so excited” for her forthcoming May wedding. “He said ‘what, events?'” Mr Asiamah wrote on Twitter afterwards. “Fair enough.” After accepting bouquets of flowers and pictures made for them by children, the Prince and Ms Markle departed hand-in-hand.The public appearance, their first of 2018, came as it emerged Ms Markle had closed down her social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  “She is beautiful.

He’s a cool guy, a sweet guy. And he did it!” “She just couldn’t hide her excitement when Grace asked her,” the children’s mother Helen added. “She was glowing.” Introduced to Gloria Beyi, 17, Ms Markle showed she had been listening carefully to information about the station, quizzing her on her future before declaring: “It’s amazing, it so cool.”She went on to praise the presenter, adding “I can see why your show is so popular. You’re so thoughtful and your approach is so engaging” before leaving bystanders in giggles with the promise: “I must tune in.”Prince Harry, who had thus far impressed young people at the radio station, faltered down slightly when asked by Jeremiah Asiamah whether he had heard of Giggs, a rapper. The Prince and Ms Markle spent 45 minutes at Reprezent, delaying their departure to undertake an impromptu walkabout outside.

This can possibly open new exploration scenarios so that strategic decisions on the re-opening of Europe’s abandoned mines could be supported by actualised data that cannot be obtained by any other ways, without major costs.Once it is put together, the Multi-robot Platform will represent a new technology line that is only made possible by recent developments in autonomy research that allows the development of a completely new class of mine explorer service robots, capable of operating without remote control. Such robots do not exist nowadays and UX-1 will be the first of its kind. The UNEXMIN UX-1 multi-robot platform and all its components are currently being designed, built and soon be tested and validated in real-life conditions in four mine test sites, with increasingly harder conditions in mine layout and geometry.

Clark County flu outbreak continues two deaths reported

first_imgThe flu continues to sweep through the community, with elevated levels for the ninth consecutive week this season.For the week of Jan. 1 to 7, the most recent data available, 35 percent of flu tests in Clark County came back positive. That follows two weeks with positivity rates in the 30s — 37 percent the week of Dec. 18 to 24 and 38 percent for Dec. 25 to 31. A positivity rate of more than 10 percent indicates flu transmission is occurring in the community.Local flu activity briefly spiked in early November. Then, in mid-December, flu numbers started climbing again and have remained elevated since.Statewide, flu activity has reached more than 20 percent, prompting state health officials to declare an influenza epidemic. Hospital emergency rooms across the state are being overwhelmed by people seeking treatment for flu-like symptoms.“The flu can make people really sick, and over the past few weeks there has been a dramatic rise in influenza activity across the state,” said Dr. Kathy Lofy, health officer for Washington State Department of Health, in a news release. “Most healthy people who get the flu don’t need medical care; however, people who are in a high-risk group, or are very sick or worried about their illness, should contact their health care provider.”As of Dec. 31, the state had confirmed 24 influenza deaths during the 2016-17 flu season. Clark County Public Health is reporting two flu-associated deaths so far this flu season. Both deaths were in people older than 80.Last flu season, the county recorded one influenza-associated death. Clark County typically has two or three influenza-related deaths each year.Even though the flu is circulating, health officials are reminding people that it’s not too late to get a flu shot. Anyone 6 months or older who has not yet received a flu shot should get one as soon as possible, as the vaccine takes two weeks to build up full protection.last_img read more

Food regulator allots Rs 500 crore for lab upgradation seeks private partners

first_imgFood Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has allocated Rs. 500 crore to help modernise state government laboratories. The food safety regulator will rope in private companies for the objective and also involve them in managing the labs efficiently, reported Mint. “Building laboratory infrastructure is easy. Running them professionally is not,” Pawan Kumar Agarwal, chief executive of FSSAI, told the business daily. Under public private partnership (PPP) terms, the government is expected to provide complete “capital support” for infrastructure, while the private players will operate and maintain the labs.However, the government will retain critical functions such as food analysis, both with regard to their appointment and pay, the daily added.To make the labs viable for private players, the FSSAI is expected to float an expression of interest soon. It also notified on April 12 an increase in testing charges to bring them on par with the current rates.All the labs, including the two central (FSSAI owned) and 82 owned by states, will be modernised in two to three years. Agarwal pointed that there was no lack of labs in the country; however the number of tests done needs to be increased.”That’s (number of tests) far from adequate in terms of enforcement, surveillance and risk assessment,” he told Mint.Imported foodsThe Mint, citing a latest report by economic research organisation Research on Industry and Economic Fundamentals study (RIEF), said the absence of FSSAI laboratories at ports have caused huge delays in entry and exit of food products business, apart from the cost overruns.Accepting the food regulator’s cumbersome approach to sample/test all foods entering the Indian market, Agarwal said, “We are trying to do inspections more on risk-based approach rather than doing 100 percent sampling of imported foods.”last_img read more

One of three founders, Jobs was driven out of Apple in the mid-1980s, only to return a decade later and rescue the computer company from near bankruptcy.In the two decades since, Apple has risen to become the most valuable company in the world by helping popularize yet another era in computing, the smartphone. The iPhone, introduced by Jobs in 2007, has sold more than one billion units. In his memo, Cook referred back to Jobs, who died in 2011.”Steve founded Apple on the belief that the power of human creativity can solve even the biggest challenges — and that the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do,” Cook wrote in the memo.”Just as Steve always did in moments like this, we should all look forward to Apple’s bright future and the great work we’ll do together.”last_img read more

Firefox 60 Disable Firefox Sync integration

first_imgFirefox 60: Disable Firefox Sync integration by Martin Brinkmann on February 28, 2018 in Firefox – 25 commentsMozilla added a new customization option to Firefox 60 that gives an option to users of the web browser to disable the browser’s Firefox Sync integration.Firefox Sync is a data synchronization service that is integrated into the Firefox browser. Users need to sign up for a Firefox Account to use it and may then sync some data with the cloud and other connected devices.Sync evolved over the years; it started out as an add-on for the Firefox web browser but was built-in Firefox eventually to reach a larger audience by exposing the feature to all users of the browser.Firefox Sync is the primary option to sync data such as passwords, bookmarks or the browsing history across devices. It is great for Firefox users who run the browser on multiple devices and for users who want to back up important data in the cloud.Firefox users who don’t use Firefox Sync are exposed to it in the browser, however. The main menu lists a Sync option prominently (Sign in to Sync) and the options have an entire section dedicated to synchronization. If you display the menu using the Alt-key, you find Sync listed under Tools as well there.Disable Firefox Sync integrationMozilla added a new preference in Firefox 60 that gives you the option to disable Sync so that it wo’t show up in the main menu, in the preferences, or under Tools.Here is what you need to do to configure it:Load about:config?filter=identity.fxaccounts.enabled in the Firefox address bar.Double-click the preference to toggle its value.A value of True means Firefox Sync is enabled.A value of False means Firefox Sync is disabled.Restart the Firefox browser to complete the process.Once you have made the change Firefox Sync is no longer visible in the browser UI and sync functionality is disabled.You can undo the change at any time by setting the value of the preference to True. The patch is an uplift from the Tor project as indicated on Mozilla’s website.Closing WordsAdding an option to Firefox to disable Firefox Sync is a good change in my opinion. Firefox users who don’t use it can hide Sync in various places in the user interface to streamline it more.Now You: Do you use Firefox Sync?

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Martin agrees, saying he thinks he can hold about the same amount of weight as the 300-pound Campbell and grow into his frame. As he begins that process, Martin noted it’s not a bad thing to have someone like Campbell around to learn from. “He’s been successful at this level, so he’s definitely a person I can turn to and ask anything,” he said.Of course, you don’t see too many outside linebackers of the size Martin is expected reach, so it’s very possible while Martin may rotate around the defense this season, his future may ultimately be along the defensive line, not standing up behind it. “I think before it’s all said and done I’ll be that end,” he said. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling TEMPE, Ariz. — By most estimations, the Arizona Cardinals entered the 2014 NFL Draft looking to add a pass rusher.They didn’t do it in the first round, instead choosing safety Deone Bucannon. They didn’t do it in the second round, either, as the team decided to take tight end Troy Niklas.But in the third round, with the 84th overall selection, the Cardinals nabbed Kareem Martin from North Carolina. Comments   Share   – / 7 “It’s going to give Todd (Bowles) a lot of flexibility in the number of different combinations we can have rushing the passer,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said of the pick the night it was made. The 6-foot-6, 272-pound Martin earned All-ACC first-team honors from the conference’s coaches last season after tallying 82 total tackles to go along with 11.5 quarterback sacks and 14 QB pressures. He finished the campaign with 21.5 tackles for loss.“I’m pretty balanced, but I’ve been a great pass rusher,” Martin said while chatting with the local media Wednesday at the team’s Tempe training facility. “So I think that’s where I’m going to excel at this level.”That’s why the Cardinals drafted him.“Because he’s so long he should be able to play on special teams and then add to the defensive line rotation and outside backer rotation,” Arians said. “He’ll find a spot.”For Martin, the most comfortable spot would be with his hand in the dirt on the defensive line, given that’s where he spent the majority of his time at UNC. “It’s a fun position,” he said. “It’s a grind down there. It’s one of the positions where you don’t get a lot of praise until you get there. They don’t see what you go through to get to the sack. “I don’t know — it’s just fun to me.”But as Arians said, Martin can expect to play a few different positions in Arizona’s defense. A few days into rookie camp, it’s already started.“Right now I’ve played a little bit of stand up, outside backer, and today I played down with my hand in the dirt,” he said. “So I think they’ll move me around all the way from linebacker to defensive line.“Wherever I can make plays from.”Last season the Cardinals finished tied for sixth in the NFL with 47 sacks, 11.5 of which came from veteran John Abraham. Abraham’s now 36, though, and along with the departure of Karlos Dansby and his 6.5 sacks, there are some questions as to how effective the team will be at getting after the quarterback. While Martin may not be expected to shoulder much of the load as a rookie this season, the goal is for him to develop into a reliable pass rusher, not unlike defensive end Calais Campbell.Campbell, who was a second-round pick in 2008, is tall for a defensive lineman at 6-foot-8, but has grown into his body and become one of the better pass rushers in the NFL. The Cardinals believe Martin can take a similar path, especially with regards to how much bigger and stronger he can get.
