UK continues to partner with Sri Lankan journalists to improve media freedom

The British Government continues to partner with Sri Lankan journalists to improve media freedom, the British High Commission in Colombo said.Mathanavasan Paramanantham and Raisa Wickrematunge will be the latest Sri Lankan participants on the British Government’s Chevening South Asia Journalism Fellowship scheme. The fellows will be leaving for the UK in March to undertake a programme at the University of Westminster in London. Titled ‘Good Governance in a Changing World: the Media, Politics and Society’, the programme will bring together experienced journalists from around South Asia. The programme explores the important role the media has in holding governments, public services, other organisations and individuals to account, and the different ways in which journalists can do this. The High Commissioner said that the UK believes that protections for journalists – formal or informal, bloggers for example – need to extend to those operating in the digital space.  A threat against a journalist made online is no less serious than one made in person or through the post. The Fellowship has been open to participants from Sri Lanka since 2017, and this is the third group of fellows travelling to the UK. Speaking at a reception organised to celebrate the new Fellows’ success, the British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka James Dauris said that good journalism helps to safeguard all of the freedoms that we cherish; it protects public interests; it helps to keep democracies democratic, and elections free and fair; it is a vital bulwark against corruption and organised crime”.He said that the most recent Freedom House index shows democracy in retreat in more countries around the world than it has been advancing in.  A growing number of governments are increasingly using restrictive laws to stifle freedom of expression and prevent the functioning of an independent media.  For commercial, criminal, political and many other reasons people seek to prevent journalists looking into those dark corners where we need light to shine.“The pages of Sri Lanka’s recent history carry stories of terrible violence against writers, cartoonists, editors, crimes for which the people responsible have still not been held to account,” he added. “We need good, honest investigative journalists.  Every society needs them, those where they aren’t allowed to operate almost certainly most of all.  It comes as no surprise that there’s a direct correlation between countries with the greatest media freedom and the lowest levels of corruption,” he said.The High Commissioner said that the UK has long supported media freedoms globally, and is home to a wealth of media expertise and innovation. (Colombo Gazette) Press freedom and journalists’ safety is a global priority for the British government. In July this year the UK will host an international conference in London on media freedom.For two days it will bring together foreign ministers, industry figures, representatives of civil society, academics and the wider media to push for a greater appreciation of the value of having an independent media, and to encourage a more co-ordinated approach to securing the safety of media professionals. read more

In Washington Annan urges business leaders to join fight against HIVAIDS

“Even though AIDS poses a huge economic threat, it is first and foremost a humanitarian imperative,” Mr. Annan told members of the US Chamber of Commerce during a breakfast meeting. “In fact, there is a happy convergence between what your shareholders pay you for, and what is best for millions of people the world over.”Stressing that the spread of AIDS causes costs to rise and markets to shrink, he said, “The business community needs to get involved to protect its bottom line.” The Secretary-General detailed the negative effects of the pandemic, pointing out that by 2005, AIDS would strike a combined 10 million people in China and India – “two of America’s largest export markets and sources of supply.” Looking to the broader implications of the spread of the disease, he cited a CIA report which found that the burden of infectious diseases will add to political instability and slow democratic development in Sub-Saharan Africa, parts of Asia, and the former Soviet Union. “That is certainly not good for business,” he said. Outlining how corporate action can fight the epidemic, Mr. Annan called on those present with employees in the developing world to implement effective AIDS policies. “Programmes to educate your work force about HIV can become a corner stone of our global prevention campaign,” he said. Beyond contributing through the workforce, the Secretary-General said businesses can serve as advocates for change by speaking about the AIDS epidemic and what can be done to stop it. “Silence and stigma drive the virus underground and fuel its spread,” he said. “Speaking up helps to halt it.” The Secretary-General also pointed out that businesses could help to stop the spread of AIDS by donating money to the Global AIDS and Health Fund, which he proposed earlier this year as a means of supporting national programmes and strategies. Citing a Harvard University estimate that AIDS has already cost the world more than $500 billion, he said the suggested $10 billion to defeat the disease “seems fairly reasonable – in fact, a bargain.” Later, Mr. Annan had a one-on-one meeting with US Secretary of State Colin Powell. Speaking to the press afterwards, the Secretary-General said the two had discussed Iraq, the Middle East, Secretary Powell’s recent visit to Africa, and the struggle against AIDS. read more

FEATURE Seizing on global trend Afghan women reporters empower voices against violence

In social media across Afghanistan, one trending hashtag is #wheresmyname, which highlights the effort of women to be heard and recognized by men. “Women are often ignored in Afghan society, and their interests fall on deaf ears, so this hashtag is a kind of a cry for recognition,” said Anosha Ansari, also a reporter at Ariana TV in Mazar.“Even when women are losing hope, they still want to be heard,” she added, pointing out that women and girls can often go unnamed even on their gravestones, which merely read, “Wife of someone” or “Daughter of another.”Social media is a way not only for abused women and girls to learn more about their rights with regard to gender-based violence, but also to highlight the plight of survivors, particularly in distant locales across Afghanistan.Even when women are losing hope, they still want to be heard Anosha AnsariYet Afghan women are usually reluctant to identify themselves with a real photo on Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere. “Of course, there is also self-censorship on social media,” said Ms. Ansari. “Women and girls usually want to avoid confrontation, so they often choose to keep stories of violence and abuse to themselves, but not always.”Afghanistan’s media culture remains one of the most open and vibrant in the region, but breaking down conservative customs and taboos about discussing gender-based violence is a constant challenge. “There are still a lot of male leaders in society who say that this is not a subject that needs discussion,” said Ms. Rasoly. “That is a mindset that we are dealing with and trying to change.”Each year, the international community marks 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Beginning on that date, and running through Human Rights Day on 10 December, are the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign.Women demonstrating for rights. The banner reads: “Human rights are your rights! Human rights are my right! Human rights are our rights!” Photo: Farzana Wahidy The UN has sponsored forums and athletic events to promote conversation and awareness of gender-based violence and harassment, and has worked with local media outlets to extend the messages coming out of these events to surrounding communities. The UN also has conducted traditional and social media campaigns to promote women’s rights, including through the participation of religious leaders, academics, elders and other public figures.The best way to confront gender-based violence is to empower women, girls, and all others to speak up, according to Sayed Barez, a UNAMA public information officer. “When survivors are allowed to speak out – with the help of the media – it holds perpetrators accountable, turns lives around, and sensitizes society to all forms of gender-based violence, including sexual harassment.”In the end, he says, although obstacles remain, “the UN hopes to help in Afghanistan’s transformation by focusing efforts around enforcing laws that defend women and by insisting on the view that all and any violence against women and girls is wrong.”In Mazar, where efforts have been made to provide space and shelter for female survivors of violence and abuse, women who have sought protection have also been able to speak out through the media.“Though it can be dangerous even for the shelters, depriving women of contact to the outside world and the media is illegal,” says Sayed Abdul Safwat, Director of Independent Cooperation for Change, an Afghan group instrumental in setting up women’s shelters across Afghanistan.“Anything less than access to the media makes a shelter more akin to a prison,” he says. “Women should not be required to talk to the media, but they certainly should have the right to do so.”Afghan woman in traditional cover, known as a burka, at the Blue Mosque in Mazar. Photo: Jawad Jalail In a year when the #metoo hashtag has inspired women across the globe to tell their personal tales of harassment and unwanted sexual advances in the workplace, a team of female television reporters in northern Afghanistan is promising to “leave no sister behind” by telling the often harrowing stories of Afghan women and girls trapped by abuse and gender-based violence.In Afghanistan, the challenge of helping women tell these stories is fraught with peril. It requires the use of confidentiality and anonymity to protect women and girls who choose to speak out. Those who report abuse – from simple harassment to severe beatings and rape – risk retribution and often more violence, sometimes including murder, for speaking out.“Our first step is to gain the trust of survivors,” says Raihana Rasoly, an anchor and reporter at Ariana Television in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. “When we report on abuse, we are careful to follow up and stay in contact with those who want to tell their story through the media.”She went on to say that the media outlet also works to help get the women to safety, including, if necessary, to the local women’s shelter.“I would also say that when it comes to sexual harassment, female journalists know a lot about this problem,” adds Ms. Rasoly, who heads up the regional bureau of the Afghan Journalists Safety Committee. “In Afghanistan, if a woman or girl tells her story, she can be saddled with a stigma for life.”Though women in developed countries are also subject to ostracism and further abuse for speaking out, in Afghanistan that can also be accompanied by societal perceptions that the violations of a women or girl have tainted her for life. She, in turn, can be abandoned by her own family.The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has taken a special interest in providing support for media organizations keen to help Afghan women, men and marginalized groups tell their stories.Ariana TV reporters in Mazar, seizing on global trends, help expose abuse and violence. Left to Right: Anosha Ansari; Raihana Rasoly; Wahida Faizy. Photo: Philip Smucker The theme for the 2017 campaign is “Leave No One Behind.” Civil society activists across the world, including those in Afghanistan, are calling for all governments to use laws and policies as tools to confront and punish the perpetrators of violence against women, and better protect everyone. Led by UN Women, the agency leading the global effort for gender equality, which also works on the ground in Afghanistan, the UN focuses attention on vulnerable groups.Relentless fighting in the hinterlands of Afghanistan prevents reporters, including the team of women at Ariana TV, from covering the issue from the countryside where vulnerable groups are at their greatest risk.“When we hear stories about rape or torture in the villages and try to report them in the villages, we are often stopped by elders or militants from gaining access to the story,” says Wahida Faizi, an Ariana TV reporter. “I would also add that women are sometimes more muted when they know they can be killed just for speaking out about violence and abuse against women in the countryside.”UNAMA has a mandate to support the Government of Afghanistan and its citizens in a shared goal of becoming a stable, open, and peaceful nation. This feature piece is meant to tell a human interest story related to how Afghanistan and the UN are working together to overcome the many challenges to achieving this goal. read more

Bahamas Met Department still monitoring Hurricane Jose

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 12, 2017 – Nassau – The National Hurricane Centre is advising that based on its latest models, when Hurricane Jose completes it loop on Friday, September 15, 2017, it will be pointed more towards the Carolinas and Virginia, USA.   This suggests that Hurricane Jose will pose much less of a threat to The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands this coming weekend or early next week.The Bahamas Department of Meteorology will, however, continue to monitor the movement of Jose, because looping hurricanes have, in the past, not conformed to the suggested forecast tracks and Jose is still too close in proximity to The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands to not be of a concern.The centre of the storm was located about 435 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island.    It is moving towards the east near 6mph and this motion is expected to continue today (Sept 12).    Turn towards the southeast is expected followed by a turn towards the southwest by Wednesday (Sept 13).Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75mph with higher gusts.    Some additional weakening is possible during the next day or so and Jose could weaken to a tropical storm later today.For more information contact: Lindsay Thompson, Public Information Officer, NEMA at (242) 322-6081. 322-6085. 361-5569.

Expressing the hope that the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre would take up the issue favourably, the MRPS leader said senior BJP leaders like Kishan Reddy and Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu were backing their demand.last_img read more

Texas Will Rescind Its List Of Possible Noncitizen Voters Ending Its Botched

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneVoters lined up at the Austin Community College Highland Campus in Austin for the first day of early voting on Oct. 24, 2016.Three months after first questioning the citizenship status of almost 100,000 registered voters, the Texas secretary of state has agreed to end a review of the voter rolls for supposed noncitizens that was flawed from the start.The deal was announced Friday as part of an agreement to settle three legal challenges brought by more than a dozen naturalized citizens and voting rights groups against the state. The groups alleged that the voter citizenship review, which was launched in late January, was unconstitutional and violated federal protections for voters of color.Secretary of State David Whitley — who has yet to be confirmed by the Texas Senate amid the fallout over the review — agreed to scrap the lists of registered voters his office had sent to county voter registrars for examination. Whitley’s office will instruct local officials to take no further action on the names of people it had classified as “possible non-U.S citizens,” and county officials will be charged with notifying voters who received letters demanding they prove their citizenship that their registrations are safe.The state is also on the hook for $450,000 in costs and attorney fees for the plaintiffs’ lawyers.The agreement must still be approved by the federal judge overseeing the case, and the state will have five days after the judge dismisses the plaintiffs’ legal claims to officially rescind the list. But the settlement amounts to a profound defeat for the state leaders who had defended the review even though it had jeopardized the voting rights of tens of thousands of naturalized citizens.“Today’s agreement accomplishes our office’s goal of maintaining an accurate list of qualified registered voters while eliminating the impact of any list maintenance activity on naturalized U.S. citizens,” Whitley said in a statement Friday. “I will continue to work with all stakeholders in the election community to ensure this process is conducted in a manner that holds my office accountable and protects the voting rights of eligible Texans.”The original review had been mired in controversy since day one, largely because of the faulty methodology the state used to compile the list and the fanfare with which it was announced.Top Republican leaders, including Gov. Greg Abbott and President Donald Trump, took to Twitter to falsely tout the list as proof of illegal registrations and voting in Texas. In reality, the secretary of state’s office matched the voter rolls with data it requested from the Texas Department of Public Safety for individuals who at some point in the last few years told the department they were not citizens when they obtained a driver’s license or ID card. But the review did not account for people who could’ve become naturalized citizens since then and weren’t required to update DPS.The settlement does not prohibit the secretary of state from screening the state’s massive voter registration database for possible noncitizens, but state officials agreed they would rework their methodology to only flag voters who provided DPS with documentation showing they were not citizens after they were registered to vote.It’s unclear how that will shrink the original list of voters whose citizenship was questioned. Officials agreed to provide the plaintiffs with that number as well as three more updates once the state begins compiling weekly lists to send out to county officials.Those changes are expected to address the issues at the heart of the state’s first botched attempt at reviewing the voter rolls, which unraveled within days of announcing the effort when state workers began quietly informing local election officials that thousands of the names on the original list shouldn’t have been there. A top election official in the secretary of state’s office would later acknowledge that his office had overstated the number of flagged voters by about 25,000 names because of the mistake. And local officials would quickly note they had been able to verify that hundreds of other individuals on the list were naturalized citizens.“After months of litigation, the state has finally agreed to do what we’ve demanded from the start — a complete withdrawal of the flawed and discriminatory voter purge list, bringing this failed experiment in voter suppression to an end,” said Andre Segura, legal director for the ACLU of Texas, which represented plaintiffs in the case. “The right to vote is sacrosanct, and no eligible voter should have to worry about losing that right.”In court in February, lawyers for the plaintiffs in the three lawsuits zeroed in on state officials’ own admissions that they knew naturalized citizens would be affected by the review. Despite those admissions and errors in the data, state officials continued to stand by the review as routine list maintenance and a good faith effort to maintain the integrity of the voter rolls. They also went as far as blaming individual county officials for acting too quickly to question voters on their lists, even though those local officials followed the state’s instructions for reviewing the eligibility of those voters.Under the settlement, the state agreed to provide local officials with new training materials.The plaintiffs and the state reached the settlement agreement two months after District Judge Fred Biery signaled his displeasure with the way Texas handled the review. In temporarily putting the effort on hold after three days of testimony in San Antonio, Biery chided state officials for putting “perfectly legal naturalized Americans” on a path to receiving “ham-handed and threatening” letters that demanded they prove their citizenship to avoid getting kicked off the rolls.In a scathing four-page order, Biery wrote that the letters exemplified “the power of government to strike fear and anxiety to intimidate the least powerful among us.”“No native born Americans were subjected to such treatment,” Biery said.State attorneys indicated to Biery in late March that they had proposed a deal to end the litigation. Despite early reports of an agreement, it took several weeks to iron out a deal in which the plaintiffs agreed to rescind their legal claims against the state and their requests for documents. (The plaintiffs indicated in the settlement agreement that they are not conceding that the state’s review efforts comply with federal law, leaving them room to take the state back to court if they’re troubled by subsequent reviews.)The debacle prompted a congressional inquiry as part of a larger investigation into voter suppression in various states. Congressional investigators have requested documents and communications related to the review. But the state has so far mostly denied those requests, only handing over documents that were already public.It remains unclear what the settlement means for the registered voters whose names were referred to Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has the authority to prosecute claims of voter fraud. In announcing the original review, Whitley noted his office had immediately handed over the list of names to the attorney general. Since then, Paxton’s office has offered mixed messages on whether it has begun to criminally investigate voters.On Friday, the groups and lawyers who sued the state celebrated the settlement but lamented the confusion and frustration the review effort caused..“State officials have wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars and struck fear and confusion into thousands of voters in order to pursue their voter suppression agenda,” said Beth Stevens, voting rights legal director with the Texas Civil Rights Project, which was also involved in the lawsuit. “We are glad that this particular effort was stopped in its tracks and we will remain vigilant to ensure that not one single voter loses their right to vote due to the actions of state officials.”This piece was originally published in The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. last_img read more

Heres How You Can Access Your Raspberry Pi Projects While On The

first_img If you’ve been working on a bevy of Raspberry Pi-centric projects but are about to travel for the holidays, you might be missing access here and there. No need to miss your Pi! Using a special VPN called Dataplicity, you can reconnect with it while on the road. All you need is a laptop, an internet connection, and a server to access.The program allows you to connect to your Pi remotely via a web server that runs through the system, so all you really need to do is utilize an email address and use it to remote into the terminal. You’ll be creating a new user account that enables a VPN tunnel that you can access your Pi from.Dataplicity is the brainchild of one Elliot Mackenzie, who realized just how useful it might be for anyone who’s not near their Raspberry Pi to be able to remotely connect since there wasn’t really a viable way to do so before. “People around the world are building amazing projects using the Raspberry Pi, but accessing your device remotely is still a massive pain,”  he explained. So he made sure his way would be secure since it requires your own credentials, and it’s very simple to use. Although if you’re creating amazing projects on your Pi, you’re probably able to set something up like this as well.There’s a lot you can do with Dataplicity while on the go too, like adding a web server and checking how much disk space you have left. It’s going to be absolutely integral for anyone looking to get some work done over the holidays, especially since that can be difficult if you’ve got millions of miles between you and your precious work. But hey, everyone needs a break sometimes, so make sure you’ve got some rest coming too.

AltTab Terminator improves Windows AltTab function

first_imgAlt-Tab Terminator improves Windows’ Alt-Tab function by Martin Brinkmann on June 01, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: June 03, 2018 – 14 commentsAlt-Tab Terminator is a free software program for Microsoft Windows devices that replaces the system’s default Alt-Tab dialog with an optimized version.The application is a direct successor of the tab programs VistaSwitcher and TaskSwitchXP.A visual representation of all open programs is displayed to you when you use Alt-Tab on a Windows machine. Windows displays a visual snapshot of the program and the program’s title in the Alt-Tab interfaceUse keyboard shortcuts or the mouse to navigate and select programs that you want to switch to.Alt-Tab TerminatorAlt-Tab Terminator replaces the default Alt-Tab and Windows-Tab functions of Windows with its own. It is compatible with all recent 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system.The screenshot that you see above shows the new interface that you get when you use one of the shortcuts.The free program displays program titles in a sidebar on the left and a larger snapshot of the selected program on the right.The new display is a stark contrast to Windows’ Alt-Tab function; instead of displaying snapshots of all program windows at once, Alt-Tab Terminator displays single program snapshots only.You get larger previews of the program windows because of this but don’t see snapshots of all programs anymore.You can use the shortcuts Alt-Tab or Alt-Shift-Tab to navigate between open programs or use the mouse for that just like you could before.Options to close the program, terminate the process, or open a new instance of the program. Windows’ default Alt-Tab interface supports closing the program instance only.The sidebar list of all program titles is useful. While you get titles displayed when you use Windows’ Alt-Tab functionality, these titles are displayed on top of the windows. Alt-Tab Terminator’s sidebar listing provides a much better overview of titles so that you may use the listing to select programs quicker.A right-click on the program listing displays a context menu with mostly window state change options. Use it to close, minimize, maximize, restore or terminate program windows, or use run functionality. Each option is mapped to a keyboard shortcut for faster access.Tip: Press F4 repeatedly to close programs one after the other using Alt-Tab Terminator.The program comes with a handful of interface modifications; you can disable the Alt-Tab or Windows-Tab mapping of the program. If you like the new Windows Timeline feature of Windows 10 version 1803, you can disable Windows-Tab so that Alt-Tab Terminator’s interface is launched only when you use Alt-Tab on the system.You may also disable large icons displayed in the sidebar; useful if you have lots of program windows and instances open as it makes the whole title listing more compact. Speaking of compact, Alt-Tab Terminator supports a compact interface option which removes the program title listing and reduces the listing to icons only.You can change the size of the interface, from the default setting medium to large, small or fullscreen.Closing WordsAlt-Tab Terminator is a powerful program for Windows that replaces the default Alt-Tab function with an improved one that offers a better overview and customization options the default function lacks.Now You: Do you use Alt-Tab or Windows-Tab on your devices?Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 2 votes Software Name Alt-Tab TerminatorOperating System WindowsSoftware Category ProductivityLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

Apparently the 10 Billion Threshold is Not So Scary

first_img October 5, 2016 615 Views Share in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Assets Banks Regulation 2016-10-05 Seth Welborncenter_img On the surface, it seems like banks have plenty of incentive to avoid the $10 billion asset threshold that was put in place by Dodd-Frank a little more than six years ago.After all, banks that cross that threshold become subject to supervision and regulation from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a cap (imposed by the Fed in 2011) on the interchange fees they charge merchants when shoppers use their debit cards, and they become subject to Dodd-Frank’s annual stress tests—which are costly to the banks and result in increased public scrutiny, since the banks are required to publicly disclose the stress test results. In the 2016 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests, 33 bank holding companies were reviewed.With those prospects on the horizon, are banks making an effort to avoid crossing over the magical $10 billion asset mark? According to an analysis issued by the New York Fed authored by Donald P. Morgan and Bryan Yang, they are not.“There are plenty of anecdotes about banks avoiding the $10 billion threshold or waiting to cross with a big merger, but we’ve seen no systematic evidence of this avoidance behavior,” the authors stated.The New York Fed researchers found when examining the cumulative distribution of bank-quarter assets in the $9 billion to $11 billion asset range both five years before and after Dodd-Frank passed in 2010, there was a significant shift in the distributions after Dodd-Frank (77 percent of observations) compared to before (48 percent). The researchers found no such shift in the distributions in the $7 billion to $9 billion range.Vincent Hui, Senior Director at Cornerstone Advisors, said he believes banks are not necessarily avoiding crossing the $10 billion threshold—but he believes they may be delaying it in order to prepare themselves for the increased expenses and regulations.“They really want to understand, ‘How much is this going to cost me? What type of resources do I need to put in place? What type of capabilities do I want to put in place?’” Hui said. “Publicly held institutions, in particular, need to manage shareholder expectations and be able to say, ‘It’s going to cost this amount of money and this is how we’re going to address it in order to make sure that our profitability or our earnings growth rate are not negatively impacted.’ I think a lot of it is more a delaying tactic to sort out what they want to do—not just to be in ‘compliance’ with CFPB and other regulations like Dodd-Frank, and also take into account the Durbin Amendment, but also what are they going to do to replace lost revenues to offset increased expenses.”The delaying tactic could potentially work against the bank, however, because “If you’re a publicly held bank, if you delay things too much, you start negatively impacting earnings growth and ultimately the share price, which ultimately doesn’t do a lot of good for shareholders,” Hui said.Ultimately, it just isn’t good for business when banks say they intend to put a dollar limit on the amount of assets they want to hold, Hui said.“What do people want? They want earnings per share growth,” he said. “And one of the drivers for earnings per share growth is to grow your balance sheets, because most banks are balance-sheet driven in terms of their earnings. Even for private companies, they have a little more flexibility, but at the end of the day their shareholders want to have increasing dividends and increasing share value, so there is that external pressure for them to grow. Very few banks have figured out how to grow earnings without growing their balance sheet. If they have, more power to them.” Apparently, the $10 Billion Threshold is Not So Scarylast_img read more

Justin Bethel walks around during OTAs Photo by

first_imgJustin Bethel walks around during OTAs. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Comments   Share   TEMPE, Ariz. — Wearing an oversized white sun hat, cornerback Justin Bethel is easily spotted among Arizona Cardinals coaches and players during organized team activities.While his teammates participate in drills, including 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 work, Bethel is watching intently, often times taking notes and shouting instructions.He stays active without being active while he recovers from offseason foot surgery. “(Rehab) is coming along good; excited about the progress,” he said, then added with a smile. “After awhile you just start getting tired of sitting on the sideline.”Bethel said he’d be back on the field “for sure by training camp,” where he once again intends to display his cornerback ability.Last season Bethel set career highs with 29 tackles and two interceptions — including a pick-6 against San Francisco in Week 3 — and nine passes defensed.“I’ve been making strides every year,” he said, “and so going out there knowing I’m 100 percent and knowing I don’t have anything to worry about (and) anything breaking while I’m out there, I’m just ready to go out there mentally, physically and be way better than I was the year before.” – / 16 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Bethel is keeping up with his fellow cornerbacks by taking mental reps.“Being able to just watch, you see a couple of things, things you might’ve had questions on, and you get to see it play out over and over again. You get to see every rep. I think that helps me with solidifying what I think I know on the plays. I usually go through the calls. I see motions and stuff. I’ll call out what I think; trying to help the other guys out,” he said.“I do the physical stuff I can, but right now it’s more mentally for me getting what I need to get out of these practices.”Bethel is four years into an NFL career that has seen him get selected to the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons.The Cardinals now expect Bethel to become a starting cornerback.“I think I’m capable of being a great starting corner,” he said Tuesday.Bethel made five starts last season, three times filling in for Jerraud Powers and twice after Tyrann Mathieu went down with a season-ending ACL injury, which forced Powers to move inside.To say Bethel was picked on by opposing quarterbacks would be an understatement.For one, he lacked experience at the position and two, Patrick Peterson kept throws to his side of the field at a minimum with his play. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Last year was my first year of really going out there and playing. I think for me the biggest thing is just getting that feel of it and getting more comfortable in the position,” said Bethel, who was drafted as a safety. “Once I get enough time playing it, especially during training camp and getting those reps, I’ll be more comfortable at it and I’ll just keep getting better and better.”The Cardinals are banking on that.In December, they rewarded Bethel, 25, with a three-year, $15 million contract extension, including $9 million guaranteed; and then this offseason allowed Powers to depart for Baltimore via free agency.At some point last season Bethel suffered a left-foot fracture, yet he still played all 16 games plus two more in the playoffs.Bethel managed the pain — “usually before a game I would take some ibuprofen or something to try and calm it down,” he said — but certain plays, mainly on special teams, would cause the pain to flare up again.“It would come and go. I knew it was there, and certain things would bother it, but I tried to not let it affect me too much,” he said.The pain is now gone, as is the boot Bethel wore following surgery, which has allowed him to do some light work on the treadmill.
