Sidney Rice has a lot on his shoulders this year with the Seattle Seahawks. The problem is, he had surgery on both shoulders and so they are hardly ready for him to take on NFL hits.“This is going to be up to them. I know they’re going to protect me as much as possible,” Rice said of the team. “Preseason is important but it’s not as important as the regular season. They’re going to take their time and progress me along, bring me along as much as possible, and we’ll see what happens during the preseason games.”Rice’s first season with Seattle was marred by injury. He injured one shoulder during the preseason and said he was unaware that the other was also damaged. Rice played as best he could through the two shoulder injuries until a pair of concussions — the second one suffered in Week 12 against Washington — finally landed Rice on injured reserve.His first shoulder surgery on the right one came Jan. 3. His left shoulder was repaired Feb. 16. Still, it could be a while before the Seahawks put him at risk. Initially, they were going to place Rice on the physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, but he was cleared to participate in drills over the weekend before the first practice.“We’re just going to go through this conservatively, I guess you can say, and lengthen the time of his recovery through this camp. That’s great that he’s working and getting the timing worked, but we won’t get him banged for a while,” coach Pete Carroll said. “We’ll see how that goes as we start to make progress. This is the best time for us to have our hands on him and really work him right and finish off his off-season, and I just think he’s had enough that he’s been through that it warrants taking our time here and not rushing him back.”Rice’s health is of the utmost importance for Seattle this year because of the questions that linger with the rest of its receivers. The competition to find who will start opposite Rice, along with determining the depth of the position, is one of the few true battles the Seahawks have to solve during the next month.“I’m the leader of this group now with Mike (Williams) gone and I just want to lead by example,” Rice said. “These guys know how to play football but we have to bring it every day, bring the right attitude.”

Email The brothers Met discuss developing their unique indie-pop sound, superstar collaborations and ambitions to become the Wes Anderson of musicNate HertweckGRAMMYs May 29, 2018 – 1:58 pm Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met of AJR found their unique sound the hard way, by cutting their teeth busking on the streets of New York City. A decade later, the band has just wrapped a 32-date sold-out North American tour, sharing their special brand of indie-pop infused with radio-hit hooks set against the kind of performance dynamic you can only learn through persistence and experimentation.AJR have since become pop music juggernauts, flipping the proverbial pop script to explore production and songwriting from a new angle. On their second full-length album, 2017’s The Click, the band came clean by tackling topics in an earnest way rarely seen in the genre. This is exemplified, for example, by the fresh approach on the effects of fame — or lack thereof — in “I’m Not Famous.””That was probably the first song we wrote and released for The Click,” says Jack Met. “With that song, we sat down and said, ‘OK, we’ve done production, now let’s see if we can really say something that no one has said before,’ and that’s where ‘I’m Not Famous’ came from. It’s a song about why it’s great to not be famous. We put that out and everyone just started really reacting well to it.””We wanted to say something that hasn’t really been said before in music. And that was really the main theme of The Click. It was just strange lyrical concepts.” — Jack MetDespite the benefits of not being famous, AJR still find inspiration — and aspiration — from another member in the entertainment industry who has made a huge name for himself with his innovative and emotional storytelling.”We want to be the Wes Anderson of music,” adds Ryan Met. “When you watch a Wes Anderson movie and you laugh, not because it’s funny — it’s not a comedy — but you laugh because it’s so blatant, and … so, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen that in a movie before. …’ It’s so wry and so honest, but it’s also emotional. So I think we think about that a lot, and that’s really come to be AJR’s voice.”Collectively, AJR’s cinematic aesthetic and musical street smarts have yielded some magical moments. “Sober Up,” their latest single from The Click, features a guest appearance from Weezer’s GRAMMY-winning frontman Rivers Cuomo, the perfect fit for the infectious left-of-center pop tune.”I think we wrote the song in probably 30 minutes, just starting with that idea of sober up, and wanting to use it as a metaphor for wanting to be young again,” says Jack Met. “Rivers Cuomo is a completely different story.”He goes on to explain that Cuomo followed the guys on Twitter and sent a DM to the band praising their previous single, “Weak.” Understandably excited by the endorsement, AJR went for it and asked if Cuomo would want to collaborate on a future track together. To their surprise, Cuomo said yes and wrote the bridge for “Sober Up.”Earlier this month, AJR branched out even further, collaborating with GRAMMY-nominated DJ/Producer Steve Aoki and GRAMMY-nominated rapper Lil Yachty on the song “Pretender,” which started as a song that just missed the cut for The Click.”It didn’t fit into the flow of the album, and we ended up sending it to Steve Aoki’s manager,” says Ryan, who thought it would be the perfect fit for an EDM vibe. “The song is about being insecure and it’s about trying to figure out how to fit into a friend group and just emulate other people. … Steve Aoki did a crazy amazing job with it. He literally turned it from a sad song into this really just monstrous banger, and then Lil Yachty came on and his verse is awesome.””I think it’s a very cool juxtaposition of us from the alternative pop world, Steve Aoki from the EDM world and Lil Yachty from the hip-hop world.” — Ryan MetWith nothing but momentum behind AJR, the group is experiencing a fan response like nothing they’ve seen in their musical lives. From the Kanye West-inspired production-heavy approach to their 2015 debut album, Living Room, to their quirky pop breakthrough on The Click, their sights are now set on enhancing their live show.”For a long time our band was basically only about making records,” says Ryan Met. “The last two years or so, our live following has exponentially been increasing. … Our goal was, ‘Let’s just really surprise people. Let’s try and create a spectacle and try and bring the theatrical element of Blue Man Group or a Broadway show to the live concert setting.'”The result featured bucket drum breakdowns, remixes and a lot of crazy lights, vaulting AJR from playing to crowds of 300 in clubs to larger venues of 1,500 to 3,000 people. Ryan also reveals the band’s plans to play 4,000- to 5,000-person venues, doubling their audience size yet again on tour this fall while also working on new music for their next album. There’s no shortage of creative energy buzzing around inside the Met brothers.”We are also releasing a deluxe version of The Click at some point this summer, and it’ll have some new songs and some re-imagined versions of songs,” says Adam Met. “We really just want to keep feeding the frenzy of fans that has kind of grown over the last year. We want to keep sharing new music with them.”And while the brothers Met still may not be considered by all to be “famous,” AJR have come a long way from busking in Washington Square Park.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

2019 Volkswagen Jetta: Upscale, not upsized 4:15 Hyundai Buick Kia Honda Volkswagen Toyota Chevrolet 2019 Toyota Camry Review Best new and used cars for teens in 2019, according to US News & World Report 2019 Chevy Malibu review: Swing and a miss Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: Comment 2019 Nissan Altima review: Better dressed with better tech Car Industry 1 Hyundai Volkswagen Tags 14 Photos More From Roadshow Enlarge Image Hyundai With kids heading back to school, it may be time to research a new set of wheels to make sure they have reliable and safe transportation. On Tuesday, US News & World Report returns with its 2019 list of the best new and used cars for teens and there’s something for the budget-conscious and those looking to dabble in more technology.First up, let’s have a look at the best new cars for teens, per US News’ rankings. Like previous studies, it capped segments into price categories: There’s a choice for best new car and new SUV under $20,000 and selections within $5,000 increments. New cars are no more expensive than $40,000 on the list.The most affordable new-car choice on the list is the Hyundai Accent. The Korean subcompact car falls under $20,000 in the Limited trim, and to parents’ delight, it comes with a suite of active safety features. Namely, automatic emergency braking is standard. Looking at cars between $20,000 and $25,000, the Volkswagen Jetta earns the pick. Opt for the SE trim and a slew of active safety features will be onboard keeping young drivers safe at all times.For SUVs, the Honda HR-V received the nod for the $20,000-$25,000 category, while the Kia Soul (we’d hardly call it an SUV) was the top pick for the $25,000-$30,000 category. Both have high predicted reliability ratings, return good fuel economy and offer active safety equipment within the price bracket. US News places a heavy emphasis on standard safety features to ensure teen drivers are in good hands.Climbing up the price hierarchy, the Kia Forte, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota RAV4 and Camry Hybrid all earn a spot on the best new cars for teen drivers.Let’s face it: Most teen drivers and parents are likely on a tighter budget. That’s where a used car may fit the bill, especially with oodles of modern cars coming in from lease periods. Here, US News broke its picks down by size since used-car prices vary. Each car comes from the 2016 model year.For a small car, the Toyota Prius is the recommended pick, while the Hyundai Tucson earned the choice for a small SUV. Both are Top Safety Pick Plus winners from the IIHS. The Toyota Camry shows up again on the used-car list for best midsize sedan, while the Buick LaCrosse was named the best large luxury car for teens. Back on the SUV front, the Chevrolet Traverse topped the list. The GM vehicles each come with a Teen Driver System to help parents monitor driving habits and set parameters. Want the music to stay muted until everyone is buckled? No problem.Flip through the gallery below to look at the top picks. Each car should certainly provide peace of mind for young drivers — and their parents.
Monetary policy risks are becoming ineffective in a world where growth is sluggish, economies are deeply interconnected and interest rates are already near zero, said a top European Central Bank (ECB) policy-maker on Saturday, 21 November.Speaking at the University of California Berkeley, ECB executive board member Benoit Coeure called for academics and policy-makers to address issues at the root of a global economic malaise, singling out the euro zone’s inability to revive domestic demand.”The capacity of the global economy to generate growth is under question,” said Coeure. “In a global zero-lower-bound environment, surplus countries hold world output down.”If we ignore those issues, there is a risk that monetary policies may become ineffective, overburdened, and/or collectively trapped in a suboptimal equilibrium,” he said.
.Two people, including a young girl, reportedly committed suicide in Panchlaish and Khulshi areas of Chattogram on Saturday, reports UNB.The deceased are Mohammad Sohel, 22, son of Abdus Sattar of Khulshi area, and Nasmin Aktar, 17, resident of Panchlaish area.Assistant sub-inspector of Chittagong Medical College Hospital police outpost Alauddin Talukdar said the bodies were found hanging from ceiling fans in their rooms at Panchlaish and Khulshi areas.The bodies were sent for autopsies, he said.
