Darrelle Revis Traded From Jets to Tampa Bay Bucs

Darrelle Revis, disgruntled with his New York Jets’ contract, was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 13th pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and a conditional pick next year.The deal is worth $96 million, making Revis the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history, but includes no guaranteed money, according to sources close to the Pro Bowl cornerback.The conditional pick headed to the Jets is a fourth-round selection in 2014, but could become a third-rounder if Revis is on Tampa Bay’s roster on the third day of the 2014 league year, sources said.The Buccaneers will formally introduce Revis during a news conference Monday at noon EST. The front page of the Buccaneers’ official website posted a large photo of Revis in what appears to be a Tampa Bay jersey with the words: “Treasure Island. Darrelle Revis (CB). It’s a Bucs Life.”A four-time Pro Bowler during his six-year stint in New York, the 27-year-old Revis addressed Jets fans in a series of tweets Sunday night.“I been sitting around for the last hour trying to figure out what to say to the Jet Nation & I came up with this,” Revis posted on his Twitter account. “The six years I played for the New York Jets were unbelievable. I put my body on the line everyday & did everything could to help the team win.“I experienced a lot & learned a lot. The memories I had in New York I will keep dearly to my heart. I want to thank all the jets fans for making me feel welcome.”The six-year, $96 million deal would make Revis one of the NFL’s two highest-paid defensive players, along with Mario Williams.Jets general manager John Idzik cited multiple reasons for the trade, namely the inability to negotiate a long-term extension and a “degree of uncertainty” regarding Revis’ rehab from a serious knee injury suffered last season.“It became quite evident to us that there is a substantial difference between Darrelle’s view of his value and ours,” Idzik said Sunday during a conference call.Revis will not be released before this season, meaning he is assured of making this season’s base salary, but his contract includes none of the money that the NFL refers to as “guaranteed” money. Tampa Bay would be able to release Revis before any season without incurring any salary-cap charge.The final obstacle to the deal was completed Sunday, when Revis flew on a private plane from New Jersey to Tampa, Fla., to undergo a physical that included a comprehensive checkup on his knee. He passed it, making the trade official.“We have no concerns about Darrelle Revis’ physical condition,” a Bucs senior team official told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. “He will be out there the first day of training camp and ready to go Week 1.”The three sides — the Jets, the Buccaneers and Revis — spent the weekend hammering out their respective agreements. read more

US to offer Chinas ZTE temporary relief on export curbs Official

first_imgThe U.S. Department of Commerce is expected this week to lift export curbs it imposed on Chinese telecom equipment and smart phone maker ZTE Corp for alleged Iran sanctions violations.”The relief would be temporary in nature and would be maintained only if ZTE is abiding by its commitments to the U.S. Government,” according to a senior official at the agency.The Commerce Department restrictions imposed earlier this month made it difficult for ZTE to acquire U.S. components by requiring its suppliers to apply for an export license before shipping any American-made equipment or parts to ZTE.The department had said the license applications generally would be denied.Shenzhen-based ZTE has been “in active, constructive discussions” with the Commerce Department for the past week, according to a senior official at the agency.”As part of the effort to resolve the matter, and based upon binding commitments that ZTE has made to the U.S. government, Commerce expects this week to be able to provide temporary relief from some licensing requirements,” the official said.The details of the commitments are expected to be published this week in the U.S. Federal Register.ZTE was not immediately available for comment outside regular office hours.BIG HITZTE is among the largest companies that the Commerce Department has hit with a near-total export ban, according to public records.It is the No. 4 smart phone vendor in the United States, with a 7 percent market share, behind Apple Inc, Samsung Electronics Co and LG Electronics Inc, according to research firm IDC. It sells handset devices to three of the four largest U.S. mobile carriers: AT&T, T-Mobile US and Sprint CorpThe export restrictions have drawn protests from the Chinese government and rocked ZTE’s business.Its shares have not traded on the Hong Kong stock exchange for the past two weeks. The company also said last week it was delaying the publication of its annual results while it assesses the impact of Washington’s action.ZTE also said it would postpone its board meeting. Its shares last closed at HK$14.16, prior to a trading suspension on March 7.Goldman Sachs suspended its coverage on ZTE, saying there was not enough information to determine an investment rating, price target and earnings estimates for the company.Since coming under fire in 2012 for alleged deals with sanctions-hit Iran and possible links to the Chinese government and military, ZTE has ramped up its spending on Washington lobbyists.It spent $5.1 million in the last four years, up from $2,12,000 in 2011, as it sought to assuage national security concerns, according to publicly available lobbying records maintained by Congress.The Commerce Department investigated ZTE for alleged export-control violations following Reuters reports in 2012 that the company had signed contracts to ship millions of dollars worth of American-made hardware and software to Iran’s largest telecoms carrier.last_img read more

Twinkle Sharma case Sonam Kareena Kapoor Swara Bhaskar shamed for double standards

first_imgNot even half as much coverage as kathua. What happened internet intellectuals, cat got your tongue? No outrage on the background of the perpetrators? You were so rattled during Kathua. #TwinkleSharma Then why you were using Placard on Kathua matters, started shaming Hinduism and Hindustan?? Please keep your Gyan to Yourself, we Hate your Double Standards. #TwinkleSharma Ashoke Pandit @ashokepandit Heard they are not paying you to hold a placard, like you did during the Kathua incident when you implied she was killed by Hindus. A sad day when the likes of you are give space in a public discourse. Oh my gosh  intelligent lady, Did you forget this intelligence and knowledge, when you’re crying about asifa? Screenshots of Sonam Kapoor’s Twitter postsTwitterati has condemned Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and other Bollywood celebs, who protested against Asifa rape holding placards, for showing their double standards towards Twinkle Sharma’s murder case.A man named Mohammed Zahid had killed Twinkle Sharma in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh district. What is more shocking is that Twinkle was killed over a meagre sum of Rs 10,000 that the three-year-old girl’s parents had taken as loan. Zahid was arrested after Aligarh police recovered Twinkle’s body on June 2.The murder sent shockwaves across the country with many condemning it, saying that it is inhuman, horrible and barbaric. Many celebs like Sidharth Malhotra, Abhishek Bachchan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Raveena Tandon, Sunny Leone and Gul Panag were among the people, who expressed shock over the incident and offered prayers for Twinkle Sharma and her family.But a few celebs like Koena Mitra tried to give a communal colour to the murder case of Twinkle Sharma. The model-turned-actress tweeted, “Hindus have the responsibility to remain secular I guess, hence no outrage for you. I am Hindustan. A proud Hindu. I’m not liberal enough to support your Rapists. I’m no secular from today. With you and yours…. #TwinkleSharma #Aligarh #Mohammedjahid.”Many people objected to Koena Mitra for this case with politics and religion. Responding to one of them, she wrote, “Look around, there are many supporters. It’s a sarcastic statement. Silent spectators are supporters!!! No candle light march, no placards, no headlines. Why? What’s stopping them now?”Sonam Kapoor took to Twitter to condemn the murder case of Twinkle Sharma, but she requested everyone not use this incident for selfish agenda. She tweeted, “What has happened to baby twinkle is. Heartbreaking and horrific. I pray for her and her family. I also urge people to not make this into a selfish agenda. This is a little girls death, not a reason to spread your hate.”When an eight-year-old girl named Asifa Bano was abducted and murdered in Kathua, celebs like Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadda, Vishal Dadlani, Baadshah, Isha Gupta, Mini Mathur, Radhika Apte and Konkana Sen had protested against it. They had held placard which was said to be leftists and liberals’ agenda against Hindus and Hinduism. Celebs holding placards to protested against Asifa’s murderSome of these people have also condemned the murder case of Twinkle Sharma, while others remained quiet on these issues. However, none of them protested against the murderers holding the placards, which displayed their religion. This did not go down well with many right-wing people, who created a collage of their photos and trolled them for hypocrisy and double standards.Shefali Vaidya @ShefVaidya I hv nt qstnd ur beliefs bt want to knw why dr’s a diffrnce in Ur reaction btwn #Asifa & #Twinkle.Why ds delayed reaction ?Why no playcards?

Eighthour sleep may boost academic performance

first_imgWorried that your son or daughter sleep more even during final exams week? If so, take heart. According to a study, students who sleep for eight hours are more likely to perform better. “Better sleep helped in final exam performance, which is contrary to most college students’ perceptions that they have to sacrifice either studying or sleeping,” said Michael Scullin, Assistant Professor at Baylor University’s College of Arts and Sciences. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor improvement in academic performance, a student does not have to be an ‘A’ grade, the researchers said. The findings showed that whether a student was an A, B, C, or D student before their final exam, sleeping eight hours was associated with a four-point grade boost. “It is worth noting that one student who had a D-plus grade before the final but slept more than eight hours for a week during finals week remarked that it was the first time her brain worked while taking an exam,” Scullin said. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsivePoor sleep is common during finals as students cut back on sleep, deal with more stress, use more caffeine and are exposed to more bright light, all of which may disrupt sleep. Fewer than 10 per cent of undergraduates maintain the recommended average of 8 hours a night or even the recommended minimum of 7 hours, the researchers said. In the study, the students were given extra points if they met “the 8-hour Challenge” – averaging eight hours of sleep for five nights during final exams week. The participants included undergraduate interior design students and students in upper-level psychology. They wore sleep-monitoring wristbands for five days for accurate results.last_img read more
