Five Ravens players whose stock rose during spring workouts

first_imgYou never want to make too much out of the Ravens’ spring workouts, whether it’s overanalyzing every Lamar Jackson throw or inflating the roster chances of the rookie labeled a sleeper after the draft.Ravens safety Tony Jefferson said it best this past week about judging players during non-contact voluntary workouts.“We’ll see in training camp when the pads come on,” Jefferson said. “Obviously, some people look good in shorts, and some people look great in pads. That’s when we find out who the real football players are.”It’s particularly difficult judging offensive and defensive linemen without pads, which leads to even more attention on players at the skill positions.Acknowledging those limitations, below are five players who seemingly helped their stock this spring:OL Jermaine EluemunorHead coach John Harbaugh threw some cold water on this one by noting Eluemunor’s need to get in better playing shape for training camp, but the third-year lineman taking virtually all first-team reps at left guard was one of the bigger surprises of the spring and speaks to his growth since his rookie year. This figures to be one of the more interesting position battles on the roster with James Hurst, Alex Lewis, Bradley Bozeman, and rookie fourth-round pick Ben Powers all in the mix, but Eluemunor has quietly expanded his versatility by filling in at left tackle last year and moving back to guard this spring, which should improve his roster chances even if he doesn’t win the starting job.ILB Chris BoardThe discussion following the March departure of four-time Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. Mosley centered around 2018 fourth-round pick Kenny Young moving into the starting lineup next to Patrick Onwuasor, but Board, an undrafted free agent who excelled on special teams as a rookie, split the first-team snaps with Young and even appeared to get more reps in certain packages. Harbaugh anticipates a rotation between the two with dime back Anthony Levine also factoring into the snap distribution, but Board could be on the same path traveled by the likes of Onwuasor, Zach Orr, Jameel McClain, and Bart Scott as undrafted players who started on special teams and eventually carved out starting roles.S DeShon ElliottThe Ravens should have one of the best starting safety duos in the NFL with Earl Thomas and Tony Jefferson, but it was impossible to watch Elliott make plays this spring without thinking Wink Martindale needs to find ways to get him on the field. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Texas product showed off plenty of physicality last summer before breaking his forearm, but it was his range in pass coverage that stood out in spring workouts. Whether it’s working Elliott into the dime package or using a little bit of a safety rotation like we saw at cornerback last year, the Ravens will have a hard time leaving the 2018 sixth-round pick on the sideline if what he did in the spring carries into the preseason.WR Sean ModsterThe last two names on this list remain long shots to make the 53-man roster, but Modster flashed on multiple occasions this spring and even drew some praise from slot cornerback Tavon Young. The 5-foot-11, 183-pound receiver from Boise State has shown good hands and change of direction working out of the slot, but he’ll need to show that same ability against the threat of contact to put himself in serious contention for a roster spot. With a few veterans and several recent draft picks ahead of Modster in the pecking order and Baltimore’s run-based offense not exactly prioritizing wide receivers as highly as most teams, the rookie free agent will need to really impress in the preseason to have a chance.CB Terrell BondsOnly signed to a contract after trying out during rookie camp and a former member of the Memphis Express in the defunct Alliance of American Football, Bonds made quite an impression on the second day of minicamp when he intercepted Jackson twice in the same red-zone period. At 5-foot-8 and 182 pounds, the Tennessee State product faces what could be a near-impossible path to a roster spot with the deep depth as his position, but a strong summer would at least put him in position to catch on elsewhere like ex-Raven Darious Williams did with the Los Angeles Rams last fall. The fact that we’re even mentioning Bonds in this space is a credit to his hard work after he went undrafted in 2018.last_img read more

Disney After Hours Event Returns to Magic Kingdom

first_imgShare This!Event Guide from Disney After Hours in April ©Laurel StewartEarlier this year, Disney introduced a new special ticketed event at the Magic Kingdom called Disney After Hours. While the event didn’t see a lot of Guests overall, those who did attend said that it was one of the best experiences they’d had. So, Disney has decided to bring it back, with a few tweaks.Disney After Hours will take place once the park closes on select nights in January, February and March. Event Guests may enter the park as early as 7:00 p.m. and will then be able to remain in the park for three hours past the scheduled closing time for the event.Dates and times for Disney After Hours are:Friday, January 20 – 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.Friday, January 27 – 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.Thursday, February 2 – 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.Thursday, February 9 – 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.Thursday, February 16 – 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.Thursday, March 2- 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.Thursday, March 9 – 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.The nice thing about the event this time is that Disney is providing a little bit of advanced warning, so that those who are taking early 2017 trips have time to plan and add this event to their schedules. One of the bigger problems that I saw with the previous event was that it was announced less than a month before it started. This meant that those with trips planned during the time frame that Disney After Hours was offered didn’t have much time to decide to add the event into their vacations.During Disney After Hours, Guests are able to enjoy the Magic Kingdom with shorter waits at about 25 of your favorite attractions and character meet and greet experiences. Guests will also be able to partake in all-you-can-enjoy ice cream treats, popcorn, and bottled beverages during the event. Additional food offerings will be available for purchase throughout the night.During Disney After Hours, Guests will be able to enjoy the following attractions:Astro OrbiterThe BarnstormerBig Thunder Mountain RailroadBuzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger SpinCountry Bear JamboreeDumbo the Flying ElephantHaunted Mansionit’s a small worldJungle CruiseMad Tea PartyThe Magic Carpets of AladdinThe Many Adventures of Winnie the PoohMickey’s PhilharMagicPirates of the CaribbeanPeter Pan’s FlightPrince Charming Regal CarrouselPrincess Fairytale HallSeven Dwarfs Mine TrainSpace MountainSplash MountainSwiss Family TreehouseTomorrowland SpeedwayTown Square Theater (Mickey Mouse)Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little MermaidWalt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki RoomOne important thing to note is that Disney After Hours does not replace Extra Magic Hours for Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Guests. Instead, the event is held on days of the week where Evening Extra Magic Hours is not scheduled at Magic Kingdom.In addition, the event has seen a reduction of price. Pricing is $119, plus tax for both adults and children (ages 3-9). For Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members, tickets cost $89 plus tax for adults and children. You do not need standard theme park admission in order to attend Disney After Hours; instead, you must purchase a separate Disney After Hours event ticket. Only a limited number of tickets is available for each night.Tickets for Disney After Hours can be purchased here.Savelast_img read more

SA summons Israeli ambassador over Gaza violence

first_img17 July 2014 South Africa has expressed its concern over the escalation of violence between Israel and the Palestine territories to Israeli Ambassador Arthur Lenk. On Wednesday, Lenk was summoned to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation in Pretoria for a meeting with Deputy Minister Nomaindia Mfeketo. Mfeketo expressed South Africa’s grave concern over the escalation of violence, which has resulted in the loss of civilian life and the destruction of property in Gaza. Israeli-Palestinian violence has flared in the wake of the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank in late June, and the subsequent kidnapping and killing of a Palestinian teenager from East Jerusalem earlier this month. Militants in Gaza have stepped up rocket attacks against Israel, and Israeli airstrikes on the enclave have intensified. Mfeketo told Lenk that the South African government strongly opposed any threat of ground invasion, and urged Israel to refrain from making utterances that could worsen the situation. The government called on Israel to immediately cease its air strikes into the Gaza Strip, to allow safe and free passage for civilians, and to make it possible for humanitarian organisations to work on alleviating the suffering of victims of the violence. Mfeketo said South Africa was opposed to any attempt to use the current situation to undermine the unity government in Palestine, whose advent was warmly welcomed by peace-loving people the world over. In addition, Pretoria demanded that the Israeli authorities lift all restrictions to the importation of building material and equipment into the Gaza Strip to enable destitute families and the Gaza administration to re-build homes and infrastructure destroyed by Israeli acts of aggression. “The South African government also demands the immediate halt to the construction and expansion of settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories by the Israeli government, which violates international law, gravely undermines peace efforts, and threatens the viability of the two-state solution,” Mfeketo said. In response, Lenk explained Israel’s position on the conflict, and said he would convey South Africa’s message to his government. Source: read more

The future SSD is here—PCIe/NVMe boosts Ceph performance

first_imgCeph shows a strong trend as opensource scale out storage adoption in worldwide market and we are observing strong customer requirements for high performance storage, from must-have SSD as Journal and caching to all SSD flash solutions, ranging from CSP, FSI, Telecom, HPC/government etc to OEM/ODM.On the weekend of October 18, as the top-level Ceph community and industry conference on Ceph technology in china, themed “Ceph: The future of storage”, 2015 Shanghai Ceph day attracted 33 companies and over 140 developers, IT experts, academic leaders, business and technical managers etc, Intel delivered 1 opening and 4 key technical presentations along with Redhat, Suse, Mellanox, H3C and other industry partners delivered 10 other technical sessions.On behalf of Intel, I along with two other Intel engineers presented “SSD/NVM technology Boosting Ceph performance”, see attached pdf, we propose first ever all SSD Ceph configuration, combination of 1x NVMe SSD (Intel P3700 800GB) as Journal + 4 x Low cost high capacity SATA SSD (Intel S3510 1.6TB) as OSD data drives, this configuration has dramatically increased random write performance ~100K iops (4 node cluster), which is >32x compares to SSD as journal + 40 HDDs configuration, or in order to reach 100K iops, you need total of 1300 HDDs, this has not counted power consumption, HDD fail rate, space, maintenance cost etc, you can image the total cost ownership (TCO) for using all SSD would be dramatically lower than HDDs…We also presented Intel iCAS + Intel PCIe/NVMe SSD P3700 accelerates Ceph performance.In addition, I propose three Ceph configurations: 1)standard/good Ceph configuration, PCIe/NVMe SSD as Journal and caching, plus HDDs as data drives, the ratio is 1:16/20, example is 1 x Intel P3700 800GB SSD + 20 HDDs, P3700 as both Journal and caching (with Intel iCAS), 2)advance/better configuration: NVMe/PCIe SSD as Journal + large capacity SATA SSDs, example is above 1xP3700 + 4 S3510; 3)the best performance configuration will be ALL NVMe/PCIe SSDs, example is 6xP3700 2TB SSD per node.last_img read more
