Great to witness this cultural moment

first_imgSeoul: As someone who began the Avengers journey with Iron Man ten years ago, Robert Downey Jr says it is gratifying to see actors like Brie Larson, the newest addition to the team as Captain Marvel, shatter the glass ceiling. The actor said the emotional involvement of the audience with the franchise is the reward for the time and effort the team has put in these movies for the past decade. “I’m honestly looking at, seeing all of you, and I know some of you hold this cinematic universe close to your heart and it has this symbolism stuff and it has really come to that way for us too,” he said. “Now, I honestly just feel like I get to be a part of witnessing this cultural moment that’s coming up and I’m filled with a lot of gratitude. Just to be (here) next door to the centre stage, to the lady of the hour here (Larson), who’s broken through this double-pane glass window and kind of re-established what this genre is supposed to be, is just very gratifying.”last_img read more

Canada wellpositioned to benefit from nonmeat alternatives Beyond Meat founder

MONTREAL — The transition from animal meat to plant-based alternatives will unleash a new era of agricultural productivity and Canada is well-positioned to benefit, Beyond Meat founder Ethan Brown said Tuesday.The burger patties and sausages of the Californian company that are made from plant proteins have stormed the market, and even the stock market since the company’s listing last month on the Nasdaq composite.Beyond Meat sells products made from peas, canola oil, mung beans and rice protein that contain no soy, gluten or genetically modified foods.Brown took part in a discussion on “The Next Agri-Food Revolution” at the Montreal Conference of the International Economic Forum of the Americas.In addition to the health benefits of his products, he believes that if water and farmland can be used to grow vegetables and other plant foods, the amount of food for human consumption will be exponential.He pointed to a study indicating that a plant-based burger requires 99 per cent less water and 93 per cent less arable land to produce, not to mention reducing greenhouse gas emissions.Canada can take advantage of this windfall, he said, citing the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, where farmland is vast.There are so many possibilities with the food products used by Beyond Meat, including yellow peas and mustard seeds.“You have the ability to grow them in abundance,” said Brown, whose father teaches at the Faculty of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at McGill University.In Canada, the A&W fast food chain offers a hamburger containing a Beyond Meat patty, which is now available in many grocery stores.Not wanting to be left behind, Tim Hortons has begun testing three new Beyond Meat lunch sandwiches and could distribute them across Canada by the end of the summer.

These Fried Chicken Pants Have Japanese Twitter in Stitches

first_img Every nation on the face of the Earth has its own notions of what constitutes good fashion. If these pants are any indicator though, knowing lousy fashion is universal.Twitter user @k_kazu_magi discovered these unique trousers on Japanese shopping site Rakuten last week. “When I look at these pants I found on Rakuten, all I can think about is KFC. They look exactly like fried chicken from the back….” they said alongside the images of the questionably designed pants.楽天で見つけた服が私にはケンタッキーにしか見えないしバックスタイルとか完全にフライドチキン……— 和人/22日王の器:モンテ・クリスト伯 (@k_kazu_magi) September 26, 2017From the original tweet, people went wild, with one user photoshopping a delicious-looking fried batter texture over the pants.FF外失礼します。フライドチキンに差し替えてみました— とらうとさぁもん (@Demasei_) September 26, 2017I agreed with the Twitter user who said they look like carrot legs (but not nearly as adorable) not only in design, but color as— おーもと (@bttf0709) September 26, 2017Another user said it reminded them of those novelty rubber chickens.

The model looks swallowed up by them, and they’re basically the horizontal version of the drop-crotch look. Furthermore, they’re a horrible burnt sienna color that doesn’t really look good on anything.

House Subcommittee Holds Hearing on RFS

first_imgThe Energy & Power Subcommittee of the House Energy & Commerce Committee held a hearing this week on the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Panelists included representatives from the petroleum, biofuels, livestock, automotive and restaurant industries, among others. Joe Jobe, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board testified on behalf of the biodiesel industry. An initial hearing on the RFS held by the Energy & Power Subcommittee last month included testimony from the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Energy Information Administration.Over the last several months, the Energy and Commerce Committee has also invited feedback from RFS stakeholders to a series of white papers on the standard. ASA submitted comprehensive comments on the agricultural impacts of the RFS.In his statement at the hearing, NBB’s Jobe emphasized that the law, first passed in 2005 with overwhelming bipartisan support, is working as Congress intended to diversify the transportation fuels market while boosting local economies and cutting harmful emissions. He pointed to persistent increases in gasoline prices amid the current North American oil boom as evidence of the continued need for alternatives at the pump. Jobe pointed out that the RFS has helped biodiesel become the first EPA-designated Advanced Biofuel to reach 1 billion gallons of annual production.Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.), a senior member of the Energy & Commerce Committee, issued a strong defense of soy biodiesel prior to his questioning of Jobe and his fellow panelists, saying, “[Illinois’ 15th District’s] biofuel production is mostly from soybeans… and other than the [renewable identification number] fraud, which is being investigated, biodiesel isn’t really part of this debate. It’s a drop-in [fuel], there aren’t any retail issues, and it’s across the market.”While the RFS, and efforts to repeal or revise it, continue to be the subject of discussion and lobbying efforts, it is unlikely that any significant legislative changes will move through the full House or Senate. The EPA does have administrative flexibility that could be exercised to make necessary changes to the RFS.last_img read more

Poll No heroes in shutdown GOP gets most blame

first_imgWASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and lawmakers must rise above their incessant bickering and do more to end the partial government shutdown, according to a poll Wednesday that places the brunt of the blame on Republicans but finds no one standing tall in Washington.“So frustrating,” Martha Blair, 71, of Kerrville, Texas, said of the fiscal paralysis as her scheduled national parks vacation sits in limbo. “Somebody needs to jerk those guys together to get a solution, instead of just saying `no.”‘The Associated Press-GfK survey affirms expectations by many in Washington — Republicans among them — that the GOP may end up taking the biggest hit in public opinion from the shutdown, as happened when much of the government closed 17 years ago. But the situation is fluid nine days into the shutdown and there’s plenty of disdain to go around.Overall, 62 percent mainly blamed Republicans for the shutdown. About half said Obama or the Democrats in Congress bear much responsibility.Most Americans consider the shutdown a serious problem for the country, the poll finds, though more than four in five have felt no personal effect. For those who have, thwarted vacations and a honeymoon at shuttered national parks, difficulty getting work done without federal contacts on the job and hitches in government benefits were among the complaints.Asked if she blamed Obama, House Republicans, Senate Democrats or the tea party for the shutdown, Blair, an independent, said yes, you bet. All of them. She’s paid to fly with a group to four national parks in Arizona and California next month and says she can’t get her money back or reschedule if the parks remain closed. “I’m concerned,” she said, “but it seems kind of trivial to people who are being shut out of work.”last_img

Fire Danger Remains High Going Into The Weekend

first_imgWhile this summer’s wildfire season has so far been quiet in Alaska, there are areas of the state that have been sunny, warm, and are drying. Howie Kent with the Division of Forestry says the Kenai Peninsula still has a lot of dry fire fuels, which have become more flammable due to recent warmer temperatures.: “We’re expecting a little bit of breezy conditions along the coastal areas, like Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, that kind of area. For the weekend we are expected to get warmer and dryer, which will lead to higher temperatures, and lower relative humidity which equal the possibility for more fires.”   In southcentral Alaska, recent warm days and temperatures on the  forecast will dry the surface fuels and deeper layers of forested lands leaving them very susceptible to fire starts. Rain is expected on Sunday, July 22, which should bring the warning level down going into next week.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As Alaska residents and visitors prepare to head outside for the warm weekend, the state’s wildland fire officials would like to remind the public to be extremely cautious with any activity that could ignite a wildfire. Kent: “As people get out and they want to do some camping, and want to have a campfire remember to keep your campfire small in case the winds pick up unexpectedly try and keep your fire under control.” last_img read more

Best Netflix shows to watch right now

first_img 25 Warning: Not safe for productivity. Look, there’s no shortage of original Netflix series to binge on this weekend. But which ones are worth your time? Here’s a personal list of the best of the best to check out.Russian DollStream on NetflixI was fairly skeptical going into Russian Doll because time loops aren’t the easiest thing to pull off. Groundhog Day relies on top tier comedy, Happy Death Day goes for jump scares and Edge of Tomorrow has plenty of Tom Cruise running. So what does a dramedy like Russian Doll have to offer audiences? The answer is Natasha Lyonne. And what a gift her performance is to all of us. From her magnificent hair to her carefree and reckless attitude, Lyonne completely draws you into Russian Doll from the moment the show starts. Tidying Up With Marie Kondo Denise Crew/Netflix Tidying Up With Marie KondoStream on NetflixA few years back, I started using Marie Kondo’s KonMari method of organizing, and it was an instant game changer. There’s something liberating about evaluating how you feel about all your stuff. Plus her folding method massively helped my T-shirt drawer. Even if you don’t have time to read any of her books, it’s worth checking out a few episodes of her Netflix show. The Haunting of Hill HouseMetacritic score: Season 1: 79Stream on NetflixI’m not going to lie to you: Twice I tried watching this show alone at night and I failed both times. I finally had to watch it during the daytime, but it was totally worth it. The Haunting of Hill House is not only super scary, but this family drama is also fantastically well made. One could argue that the scariest part of the series is how eerily spot-on the casting is between the children, the parents and their grown-up counterparts.Chilling Adventures of SabrinaMetacritic score: Season 1: 75Stream on NetflixLook, this is not your ’90s TGIF sitcom. The new Netflix series is dark, lurid and not the least bit family friendly. Rather than making campy fluff, the show aims to tackle social issues head on. Kiernan Shipka also delights as the teen witch Sabrina Spellman, a character who consistently questions corrupt authority and the patriarchy. You can read my full length review of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina here, but it’s definitely a show you’re going to want to binge watch this weekend.  The Curious Creations of Christine McConnellStream on NetflixI don’t want to oversell it, but The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell may be the greatest show ever made. How do I even explain its majesty? What if Tim Burton broke onto the set of Sesame Street, stole some puppets and decided to use them on an HGTV-esque DIY show? The new series is mostly a reality show where the incredibly talented Christine McConnell shows you how to make insanely impressive crafting and baking projects that the average viewer will never be able to replicate. But it’s also a little bit twisted and wildly delightful. I’m madly in love with this show, and if it doesn’t get renewed I will lose all faith in humanity. ManiacMetacritic score: Season 1: 76Stream on NetflixIf Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is your favorite film, Maniac might be the television show for you. The new original series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone is strange, surreal and oddly satisfying. My roommate and I watched the entire season in a single sitting, which might say more about us than the show itself. But if you’re looking for something new, Maniac’s a great way to burn a Saturday. Big MouthMetacritic score: Season 1: 80 Stream on Netflix. Season 2 premieres Oct. 5!Oh hello, Big Mouth. Take a walk down memory lane into Nick Kroll’s childhood, and prepare to laugh your ass off. This adult animated series is stacked with many of my all-time favorite comedians, including John Mulaney, Jenny Slate, Jason Mantzoukas and Maya Rudolph. Also I’ll save you some time: Maurice the Hormone Monster is voiced not by Will Arnett, but Nick Kroll. (A coincidence that should remain between Amy Poehler and her therapist.)American Vandal  Metacritic score: Season 1: 75; Season 2: 76Stream on Netflix. Mockumentaries are my absolute favorite. And though I think we collectively burned out a touch after prime time sitcoms decided to commandeer the genre, it was about time the mocuseries got back to its roots as truly delightful satire. American Vandal knocks it out of the park. The “documentary” investigates a high-school prank in which 27 cars in a faculty parking lot have penises spray painted on them. It’s clever in unexpected ways, and it captures high school in a supremely relatable fashion.Nailed It!Stream on NetflixNetflix has been expanding its reality TV bench, and though some cooking competitions have been lackluster (I’m looking at you Cooking on High), Nailed It! is delightful. There’s nothing better than watching amateur bakers create mini-disasters in the kitchen. Oh, and guess what? They’ve released a special holiday series, which you can stream on Netflix tonight. Time to deck the halls with some baking nightmares!BoJack HorsemanMetacritic score: Season 1: 59; Season 2: 90; Season 3: 89; Season 4: 87; Season 5: 92Stream on NetflixWord of advice: Skip Flaked, a show about a brooding middle-aged man starring Will Arnett and just watch BoJack Horseman, an animated show about a brooding middle-aged (horse)man starring Will Arnett. Slickly written and painfully honest, BoJack makes a fresh case for why adults should take more animated shows seriously. But maybe don’t watch this one if you’re going through a rough patch in life. I learned that lesson the hard way.Orange Is the New Black Metacritic score: Season 1: 79; Season 2: 89; Season 3: 83; Season 4: 86; Season 5: 67; Season 6: 69Stream on NetflixEveryone expects a TV show to take a nosedive in quality around its fourth or fifth season. Maybe the most recent season of OITNB was weaker compared with previous seasons, but it’s all relative. The weakest season of OITNB still managed to hold my attention in ways many other TV shows can’t. The show has struggled in giving enough screen and story time to its extensive and well-loved ensemble cast, but are we really going to fault a show for having too many incredibly talented actors?Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Season 10 premieres July 6!Stream on NetflixComedians in Cars Getting Coffee first premiered in 2012 and already has nine seasons that originally aired on Crackle. Now Netflix continues the series with Season 10 and it’s packed with celebrities including Kate McKinnon, Dave Chappelle and Ellen DeGeneres. The show is fun, simple and easy to watch on a lazy weekend. Do yourself a favor and have a good laugh. 2018’s hottest new sci-fi and geeky TV shows Missing Scandal? 12 shows to stream on Netflix right now. Oscars 2018: 8 nominated movies you can watch on Netflix. Share your voice 1:05 Mindhunter  Metacritic score: Season 1: 78 Stream on Netflix Big fan of true crime? This new offering from Netflix will probably be right up your alley. Mindhunter centers on two FBI agents in 1977 interviewing serial killers. If you’re mildly obsessed with psychopaths, it’s a pretty fascinating look at the early days of criminal profiling. Even though Mindhunter benefits from the strong visual stylings of David Fincher (who executive produced the show and directed four of its episodes), you could honestly just throw this on in the background while you cook dinner. Easy  Metacritic score: Season 1: 72 Stream on Netflix The great thing about an anthology drama series like Easy is that they’re so easy to watch. So much so, you don’t need to actually add Easy to your Netflix watch list. Statistically, if you hang out with a group of three or more millennials for more than an hour, Easy will inevitably end up on the television in the background. Easy is well written, well executed and thoughtful. Enjoy any of the eight episodes as they come your way. Stranger Things  Metacritic score: Season 1: 76; Season 2: 78 Stream on Netflix Look, if you didn’t watch this one last summer like the rest of us, stop procrastinating. You’re special. You’re unique. You deserve to have Stranger Things in your life. This sci-fi fantastical horror ’80s-nostalgia throwback is probably the most addictive offering on Netflix. I’m not going to spend any longer trying to convince you to watch it, because it should already be playing on your TV right now. Go! Comments 2018 sci-fi, fantasy and geek movies to get excited about 50 Photos Best horror movies on Netflix Best Netflix documentaries How to stream every Marvel movie up to Avengers: Infinity War 3 tips to improve your Netflix experience Queer Eye Metacritic score: Season 1: 73; Season 2: 79 Stream on Netflix  You’re probably wondering if a reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, almost 15 years after the original show aired, would even work. Well, I have some fantastic news for you: It does. The new Queer Eye may be a makeover reality show, but it tackles a number of challenging social issues with thoughtfulness and sincerity. As a heartless robot person who almost never cries, it was an unexpected surprise that I was practically in tears nearly every episode. GLOW  Metacritic score: Season 1: 81; Season 2: 84Season 2 is now streaming on Netflix!Are you ready for the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling? I was skeptical at first (nostalgia is a slippery slope), but I thoroughly loved this 1980s women’s wrestling throwback. While the dramatic side of the show throws weaker punches, the comedic, campy side is a total knockout. Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin have the perfect frenemy dynamic. In fact, the elements of GLOW that work really highlight why wrestling in general makes for such captivating entertainment. Dear White People  Metacritic score: Season 1: 85; Season 2: 89 Stream on Netflix Did you ever catch the movie? I thoroughly enjoyed Dear White People when it came out, and was thrilled that the show manages to capture the uniquely powerful and savvy storytelling style of the film. The show focuses on the lives of students of color at a mostly white university. It’s thoughtful at a time many of us are looking for thoughtfulness in our media, and it’s also really funny. The Standups Stream on Netflix Netflix has no shortage of stand-up comedy specials, and sometimes it’s overwhelming to try and choose one to watch. Cue The Standups, which features tight half-hour episodes focusing on up-and-coming comics. It’s a low-commitment way to find some new comics you might enjoy, and the perfect length if you’re looking for something fun and quick to watch that isn’t another sitcom rerun. (No judgements. I’m sure I’ll be starting my dozenth Parks and Recreation rewatch any day now.)3Love Netflix LoveMetacritic score: Season 1: 72; Season 2: 80; Season 3: 77 Stream on NetflixMaybe it’s because I’m a somewhat dysfunctional single millennial, but lately I’ve been worried that love is actually more challenging than Disney movies initially led me to believe. Which is probably why I found both seasons of Love so completely enjoyable. Love focuses on the budding relationship between Gus and Mickey. There’s nothing showy about it — the real razzle-dazzle comes from a sharp, hilarious script.On My BlockStream on Netflix This isn’t just another coming of age show for teenagers. OK, well actually it is. But you need to be watching it anyway! The show follows four close friends living in Los Angeles and it’s gripping. The kids are lovable and relatable, and I’m predicting these young actors will start popping up everywhere. Plus it’s refreshing to see On My Block tackle adolescence from a seldom seen perspective.  Marvel’s Jessica Jones Metacritic score: Season 1: 81; Season 2: 70 Stream on Netflix Netflix has its work cut out, trying to make small-potato TV shows that match the behemoth that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With only one exception, it’s done an arguably better job than network television. If you’re looking to start with a Marvel show, Jessica Jones is probably your best bet. The first season’s villain is straightforward, and Jessica Jones is probably the most accessible of the TV superheroes (badass leather jacket and all). Dark Metacritic score: 61 Stream on Netflix You’ve probably heard someone describe Netflix’s Dark as a German Stranger Things. But I think that’s underselling this eerie sci-fi thriller about time travel. Here’s how I assume Dark came to fruition: Someone was watching Back to the Future and said, “OK, but what if this movie was a TV show made by Germans?” And a friend responded, “Oh man, that show would be dark.” In all honesty, this show is so gripping that when I realized I was only four episodes in at midnight, I seriously considered staying up until five in the morning to finish it straight through. Just don’t forget to turn off the English dubbing; the performances are worth having to read subtitles. TV and Movies Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. More streaming recommendations 87 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Black Mirror  Metacritic score: Season 3: 82; Season 4: 72 Stream on Netflix Continuations of series that previously aired on another network exist on a spectrum ranging from “Why would you ever bring this back?” to “Rejoice, our prayers have been answered!” Black Mirror’s third and fourth seasons on Netflix make a solid case for letting continuations continue. The sci-fi anthology series tapped into our deepest fears of the future and technology. Since each episode stands alone, at least give San Junipero an hour of your time; the show won two Emmys.

47 ration dealers showcaused for supplying less quantity rice

first_imgKolkata: The state Food and Supplies department has show-caused 47 ration dealers based in four districts in Jangalmahal for supplying less quantity of rice to the beneficiaries under the “Khadya Sathi” scheme.”We have hardly received any complaints regarding the quality of rice but there has been a number of complaints about ration dealers depriving the beneficiaries of their proper share under the “Khadya Sathi” programme by providing less amount of rice. We have show-caused 47 ration dealers after prima facie verification of the complaints,” state Food and Supplies minister Jyotipriya Mallick said on Saturday. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataThe recently formed grievance cell at the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) at Nabanna has also registered a number of complaints on the issue. “We have formed two vigilance teams for each of the districts like Purulia, West Midnapore, Jhargram and Bankura. This team will start doing the rounds in these districts from Wednesday to ensure that no one is deprived of his due quantity of rice. The vigilance team comprising a food service officer, quality control inspector, chief inspector and inspector will camp in the districts for six months,” the minister added. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe Food department is also appealing to the beneficiaries to collect their earmarked quantity of rice once in a week rather than going to the ration shops once in every week. “There have been cases when dealers have kept their shops closed on certain days in a week and people have not received their due share. So we are urging every beneficiary to purchase their share of 5 kg rice at Rs 2 per kg at the beginning of the month from the ration shops,” a senior official of the Food department maintained. Among other measures to prevent such incidents, the department will soon introduce three separate WhatsApp numbers — one for rice, one for atta and the third for sugar in which people can register their grievances if any. The complaint once lodged will automatically reach the district controller, the department’s head office and the sub-divisional controller. “We will soon organise hearing at the district level and also at the sub-divisional level once in a week on Tuesday from 2 to 5 pm where people can come up with their grievances regarding food and steps will be taken to address their problems at an earliest,” Mallick said. The maximum number of irregularities have been noticed from Purulia and vigilance teams have already been activated there. It is learnt that 200 applications of grievances have reached the CMO at Nabanna among which 47 cases have been taken up by the Food department.last_img read more

Like the original SenoSonix, the new model is an integration of SenoRx’s EnCor breast biopsy system with ultrasound imaging. This new version of the device incorporates a microminiaturization ultrasound technology that combines personal computing power and flexibility. The new ultrasound component is designed, developed and manufactured by Terason.This versatile ultrasound technology coupled with SenoRx’s proprietary EnCor vacuum-assisted biopsy technology reportedly results in an attractive alternative model of the SenoSonix System. The modular design and sophisticated imaging architecture are now available in a reduced footprint with increased portability. The SenoSonix System received 510(k) clearance in October 2007 and CE Mark approval in April 2008.”Our new SenoSonix model is designed to meet the needs of breast surgeons performing breast biopsy procedures utilizing ultrasound in both their offices and in the hospital surgery suite who wish to have the flexibility of moving the ultrasound component between the two locations,” said Lloyd Malchow, SenoRx president and CEO. “The new system may be particularly well suited for markets in Europe and Asia where a significant percentage of biopsy procedures are performed utilizing ultrasound.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Mammography | December 11, 2017 Siemens Healthineers Introduces Mammomat Revelation Mammography System for Improved Biopsy Workflow Siemens Healthineers unveiled the new Mammomat Revelation premium mammography platform at the 2017 Radiological Society… read more Philips’ Compressed SENSE technology helps shorten MRI exams by eliminating redundant radiofrequency signals from the acquisition phase.

Driving forward more accommodation for Auto Club bookings

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T Siteminder and AAA Tourism entered into a partnership this week, signifying a combined membership of almost 7 million, allowing for greater accommodation opportunities for Australian motor club affiliates.

SiteMinder sales and marketing general manager Gary Fog asserted the partnership was beneficial to both companies’ member bases. “Our new link with AAA Tourism will put our customers’ rooms in front of millions of motor club members who love to travel” Mr Fog said.“Our link with SiteMinder is a major boost for hotels wanting more online bookings and also a bonus for our members seeking a bigger choice of accommodation they can book with us,” Ms Price added.last_img read more

Its not just Rosen though For the first time sin

first_imgIt’s not just Rosen though. For the first time since 2012, the organization drafted a wide receiver before the third round. And Christian Kirk is already showing some signs that he was worth it. The 47th overall pick erupted for 90 yards on seven catches in Week 3 against the Bears and currently leads the team with 16 receptions for 149 yards.He’s even ahead of Larry Fitzgerald right now — albeit just barely. Fitzgerald has 15 catches for 141 yards, so it’s not like either guy is rewriting the record books this season. In fact, they’re both on pace for roughly 600-yard campaigns.Related LinksTwo anecdotes from first start indicate Cardinals QB Josh Rosen was readyCardinals K Dawson uses humor to move on from missed FGWeek 5 injury report: Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ersBehind Enemy Lines: 49ers get ready to host the Cardinals in Santa ClaraThat would go down as the worst statistical effort in Fitzgerald’s 15-year career. But it’s not really his fault.The passing game was nonexistent for much of the first three weeks, though there’s a renewed sense of optimism that it can start to turn around. The simple idea that Kirk is emerging even as a second option to Fitzgerald this early is big.Rosen joked after the loss to the Seahawks that he was going to work on convincing Fitzgerald to stay another year when this one ends. Whether that happens or not, the Cardinals will eventually need someone to take over as the main option in the passing game. Even if Kirk doesn’t become a traditional No. 1 receiver, he’s showing flashes of upside just four games into his pro career. He’s already building a rapport with his new quarterback. TEMPE, Ariz. — It’s no secret what the Arizona Cardinals are doing on offense. Well, maybe it is in the moment, when the team is running curious plays late in games and averaging a league-worst 9.2 points per contest.But they have a plan for the big picture, at least.Josh Rosen is the key to that plan, of course. His arrival as the team’s starting quarterback before the calendar even hit October has given Arizona fans something to get excited about, despite the fact the Cardinals are the NFL’s only winless team. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 9 Comments   Share   “I’ve known him for a really long time,” said Rosen, who in high school hoped to play with Kirk at UCLA. “I think we’re building that connection. And like anything, it just comes with repetitions. I think with every receiver, every position, we’re getting there. Slowly but surely, take a step every week and hopefully get our first win next week. With Christian, in particular, he’s a really good buddy. We live in the same building, and hopefully we’ll be together for a long time.”That’s good news for Arizona fans, and it’s good news for Kirk, because it’s looking more and more like having chemistry with Rosen is integral to being involved in the Cardinals’ offense for the foreseeable future. Maybe even the next decade, if everything goes according to plan.This is all a small sample size right now. It’s extremely early in the process. But simply watching the last five quarters of football reveals how often Rosen looks Kirk’s way. He targeted him five times against Seattle, and even threw at him three times in the two drives he saw at the end of the Chicago game.Ironically, one of the few instances when he didn’t see him was the one time Kirk was wide open in the end zone against the Seahawks. That’s something Rosen definitely hasn’t forgotten. (AP photos)center_img “I mean, I could’ve hit Christian in the back of the end zone,” Rosen said again on Wednesday when asked if there were things he wished he would’ve done better in his first start. “Yeah, so, things like that. Absolutely.”That’s one play though. While it’s a play that Rosen can’t miss when he becomes more established in this league, it was the most obvious mistake of his first NFL start. At this point, the development of the future franchise quarterback probably means more than a win in September when the Cardinals were already 0-3 anyway.Part of that development includes surrounding Rosen with weapons. That’s where Kirk comes in.The duo could be making plays in the desert for many years, and they could enhance Steve Keim’s draft record in the process.Actually, the 2018 class in general has a chance to do that, while potentially rejuvenating the offense moving forward.“Also, throw Mason [Cole] in there as well,” Cardinals coach Steve Wilks reminded everyone of his rookie center. “When you look at those three guys and what we’re doing — you can add Chase [Edmonds] in there also — I thought we did a tremendous job in hitting in the draft this year and building what we consider to be the future on offense. And those guys right here are learning, they’re learning early, and they’re going to continue to get the reps and get better.” Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo That’s what matters most now for Arizona.Everybody wants to win, but struggling in the standings is a lot more palatable when some of the building blocks are already in place — especially at quarterback. Rather than falling into the unenviable trap of almost wanting to lose with the hope of being able to draft the signal caller of the future in 2019, the Cardinals already have their guy. They can let him learn on the job now and draft the best player available at whatever slot they fall to next April.If they’ve found their quarterback a consistent target to throw to as well, that would make this whole process go much smoother.
