Outgoing UN rights chief hails progress in new system of scrutinizing States

2 June 2008The top United Nations human rights official has praised the progress made so far in the new system of examining the performance of the world body’s 192 Member States, as she delivered her final address in the post to the Human Rights Council today. Louise Arbour, who is set to conclude her four-year term as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on 30 June, said the new reporting system, known as the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), “could provide a vehicle for scrutiny of the implementation of rights and norms beyond anything ever attempted by the Commission on Human Rights.” The UPR is one of the reforms which differentiate the Geneva-based Council – which opened its eighth session today – from the Commission on Human Rights, which it succeeded in 2006. Under the Review’s work plans, 48 countries will be reviewed each year, so that all 192 UN Member States will be reviewed once every four years. The Council examined the first batch of countries in April.“The constructive participation of all States under review has already made absolutely clear that consideration of human rights at the national level is no longer regarded as a taboo,” Ms. Arbour said. At the same time, she added that it will take “two whole cycles of reviews… before we can fully measure the added value and real impact of the UPR.” In a wide-ranging speech to the 47-member body, Ms. Arbour also urged States to stop the “pursuit of narrow parochial political agendas,” which she said is the “greatest impediment” to the realization of human rights. The High Commissioner also noted improvements in the system of “special procedures” – independent rights experts known as Special Rapporteurs, with mandates ranging from torture to housing – and urged the Council to continue its support “to further strengthen this system as a crucial tool in the promotion and protection of all human rights.” The reform of the human rights machinery, she said, “represents the most tangible achievement in the institutional renewal process of the United Nations system. By comparison, other innovative proposals, such as the creation of a more representative Security Council, still languish in the ‘to do’ folder of reform-minded advocates.”While lauding the advances, she also highlighted the continuing need to address a number of issues, including intolerance and discrimination against women, migrants and minorities. In addition, she called for new mechanisms to strengthen the system designed to prevent and punish genocide, “the worst crime generated by discrimination and intolerance.”Ms. Arbour’s successor, who will be chosen by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon after consultation with Member States, has not yet been named. read more

Waterford High School presents spring musical

This marks the sixteenth year of musical theatre at Waterford District High School.This year, WDHS has chosen “Nice Work If You Can Get It” as its spring show.There are 34 students involved in several elements of the show including lighting, sound, set construction, stage crew, and cast members. Participation is all extracurricular. There are also three teachers and seven adults from the community helping bring the performance together.Auditions for the show were held in November 2018. The cast members received their scripts to read over the winter break, and the core cast of main characters began rehearsals in January. The cast has been holding rehearsals two nights a week in preparation for the opening night.The three weeks approaching the show have been full tech, full costume, and full cast rehearsals.The cast performed a matinee show for elementary school students on April 24 in preparation for the first official show.“It’s a two and a half hour show, it’s going to seem professional to you,” said Janet Dickson, the director of the show and head of Arts at WDHS.“I would say we have amateur but entertaining dancing.”The show features songs from the 1920s written by George and Ira Gershwin. Similar to the style of Mama Mia, the songs existed prior to the show, and the script was written around them.In the lead roles are Gavin Geerts as Jimmy Winter and McKenna Campbell as Billie Bendix.Dickson says the audience will be in for a twist when they see the show.“I think they’re going to hear some songs that are familiar to them, but the plot is a surprise, and there’s a plot twist at the end,” said Dickson.The original show was on Broadway in 2012 and was nominated for a few Tony awards.“It’s great to be able to make people laugh. The music and dancing are uplifting and very energetic,” said Dickson. “Everyone has been working hard to prepare for their roles.”Show dates are April 25, 26, and 27 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee at 1:30 p.m. on April 27. Tickets are available at the door. read more

Flamefest Man dies and woman found unconscious after kinky sex festival in Tunbridge Wells

first_imgZulhash Uddin, another councillor, called for a full review of safety measures at any future events in the borough.“It is so sad to hear that somebody has lost their life. Safety is a number one issue at events like these and this will trigger a review when we do get the council issuing permits and licensing. One man, who wished to remain anonymous, said he was woken by the sound of the air ambulance landing. He said he had heard that the pair may have been overcome by carbon monoxide. A post mortem on the cause of the man’s death will be held in the next few days.”We don’t know for sure. It’s so sad,” he said. “Maybe they were cold and put a stove in their tent or something?”A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police is making enquiries to establish the circumstances surrounding an unexplained death in Tunbridge Wells.”A Tunbridge Wells Borough Council spokesman said the festival was authorised under a temporary licence and the authority had “no discretion to select the type of events held providing they meet the requirements of the relevant legislation”. A man was found dead in a tent and a woman airlifted to hospital yesterday after attending an outdoor sex festival.The man, who was in his 50’s, and the woman were understood to have been at the two-day Flamefest, a so-called “kinky rave”,  in woodland near Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent.Detectives and paramedics were called to a campsite shortly after 6am when the two people were discovered unconscious.Attempts to revive the man were unsuccessful, and his death was last night being treated as “unexplained” while investigations continue. The unconscious woman was taken to hospital by air ambulance where she was being treated.It remained unclear what caused the pair to lose consciousness. One man, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said barbeque apparatus had been removed from a tent, raising the possibility they were overcome by fumes. Others claimed the man’s death may have been drug-related. Kent Police vehicles at the site of Flamfest near Tunbridge WellsCredit:FLYJM The festival, in its second year, attracted controversy after boasting of being an event for “kinky, quirky, creative hedonists” who could “explore their wild side”. According to its website, visitors can “explore kinks” and “play within the boundaries of our common-sense rules”. There were also DJs and circus-style performers including fire-breathing acrobats and sword swallowers. Last week, Dianne Hill, councillor for the ward where the festival was held, told a local radio station: “I’m no prude but this is the wrong place for this sort of thing. It’s a residential area. A big worry is they say there will be coaches coming down – where are they going to park?”Helen Smedley, festival organiser, said it was a private event and insisted no sex would be on show to the public. She was yesterday unavailable for comment.However, local councillor Nasir Jamil, from Southborough Town Council, said yesterday that he was “appalled and disgusted” after seeing two couples having sex in a beauty spot where he normally walks with his children.“The organiser has fooled the council by saying it was a music festival but it wasn’t a music festival at all,” he said.“The whole community here is very shocked. Then we heard there was a death here and I was really, really shocked. I think there was illegal drug taking going on.” Flamefest Facebook advert The location of the festival, which has a “discreet adult play area” with “fetish equipment” and an outdoor “dungeon” with dominatrixes, was a closely guarded secret. But when it emerged it would be held on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells the local media was inundated with complaints.  Still from promotion video for Flamefest 2017, the kinky sex festival center_img Organisers of the event drafted in extra security to stop gatecrashersCredit:Grant Falvey/LNP Flamfest Flamefest Flamefest, which is in its second year, has a ‘discreet’ adult play area and an outdoor dungeonCredit:Facebook Still from a promotional video for Flamefest 2017,Credit:Youtube/Flamefest “Obviously local people did raise concerns about the festival.

Columbus and Nordgold to proceed with the Montagne dOr gold mine in

first_imgColumbus Gold Corp has announced that at a meeting of the Montagne d’Or joint-venture (Columbus Gold 44.99%/Nordgold 55.01%) held on December 15th, 2017 the joint-venture board unanimously decided to proceed with construction of the Montagne d’Or gold mine in French Guiana.Commencement of construction is subject to a number of additional requirements, including a public consultation and receipt of required permits and authorizations. The submittal of the mine permit applications is presently scheduled for the third quarter of 2018 and could take more than 12 months to process.Permitting and stakeholder engagement is currently underway at Montagne d’Or following the completion of a feasible study in March 2017 (refer to news release dated March 20, 2017). The project’s Environmental and Social Impact Study will be delivered in Q1 2018, following the completion of a supplementary in-fill geotechnical drilling program currently underway.The preliminary steps of the permitting process take into account a public consultation under the mandate of the French National Public Debate Commission. The Commission is involved in the planning of all major structural projects on French Territory that are deemed to be socio-economically important. The Commission’s mandate is to ensure that the public is able to participate in the planning of these projects with the objective to socialize and endorse decision-making. Its role is to:-Inform the public about the project submitted for public debate;-Allow the public to express itself; and-Brief the project management team.On October 4, 2017 the Commission appointed a five-member Special Commission that will manage the public consultations for Montagne d’Or, three of them are representatives selected from French Guiana. The public consultation process will extend over a four-month period commencing in approximately March 2018 followed by the delivery of the Commission’s assessment report, which will give Columbus and Nordgold the opportunity to make appropriate project adjustments prior to the submittal of mining, environmental and construction permit applications to the French Administration.last_img read more

Create a Japanese Smart Kitchen With These Appliances

first_imgI’m a geek who grew up in the 90s and watched anime on VHS. That means two things. One, that I’ve ordered swords from the Internet, and two, that I’m enamored with Japan’s culture and technology. That first part doesn’t matter (but if you ever went to the video store and saw Urutsokidoji on the same shelf as Ghost in the Shell, you know exactly what I’m saying), but the second part has helped shape my kitchen. Yes, my kitchen.Saying this makes me sound like a huge weeb, but it’s true: Japanese appliances are amazing. They’re expensive to buy (but you can find them easily on Amazon, or if you have a local Asian market), but they’re better built and have more features than the inexpensive, domestic appliances you buy at Target. Proctor Silex gets the job done, but Zojirushi gets the job done to precisely your specifications, and writes you a haiku in the process.These appliances have made my kitchen so much more convenient that I’d swear by them even if I didn’t have JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure figures on my desk and a NESiCA card in my wallet.Fuzzy Logic Rice CookerWhen you picture a rice cooker, you probably think of a Crock-Pot-looking appliance, if not simply a pot or a big glass bowl with a lid. And yes, you can cook rice with all of those things. That’s like starting a fire with two sticks and twine compared to the sleek plasma lighter that is making rice with a Japanese MiCom/fuzzy logic rice cooker.MiCom (microcomputer, because the Japanese love portmanteaus) rice cookers use programming to figure out how to best make the rice you want to make. They adjust the time and temperature depending on whether you want white rice, brown rice, sushi rice, rice with various grains added, and other dishes. They can make porridge (commonly congee, but they can make oatmeal and cream of wheat in a snap), and you can even use them to bake small cakes.I’ve been using a Zojirushi NS-VGC05 3-cup rice cooker in my home for a while now. It’s not only made cooking rice easier, but the rice I cook in it comes out better than any rice I’ve tried to make on the stove. Fuzzy logic rice cooking controls exactly how the rice cooks, meaning it comes out perfectly. My rice cooker is just a bit over $100, but if you want to cook more than 3 cups of (uncooked) rice you can get a 5.5-cup NS-TSC10 for under $150. If you want to go completely off-the-wall, you can get a rice cooker that uses induction heating and pressure cooking. You get even more options with rice cookers like the NP-NVC10, like controlling just how soft or firm you want your rice, and extending soaking times to improve flavor. They’re much more expensive than regular MiCom rice cookers, though, and will run you several hundred dollars.On the flip side, be careful you don’t get a non-MiCom rice cooker. Zojirushi makes a few, and while they’re about half the price as the fuzzy logic rice cookers, they don’t have any of the intelligent cooking modes. Another tip: Get a rice washing bowl. It’s a big plastic colander designed to let you easily rinse and drain rice before you put it in the rice cooker. A minute of rinsing will make your rice fluffier and taste even better.Zojirushi is one of the biggest names in rice cookers, but you don’t have to rely only on them. Tiger is another prominent fuzzy logic rice cooker manufacturer, and Panasonic also makes them.Yakitori GrillIt’s winter, or you live in an apartment, or the weather is bad, or you just don’t want to go outside. You still want to grill. Take out your George Foreman grill and throw it in the trash. That isn’t a grill, it’s a panini press for meat. It’s great for sandwiches, but if you want a good sear and maybe even a bit of char on your burgers and steaks without going outside you need a yakitori grill.Yakitori is skewered, grilled meat, like Japanese shish kabob or shawarma. Electric yakitori grills let you cook it without burning charcoal or wood in a conventional grill. They’re basically electric space heaters turned on their side, with a big heating element in the middle, a grill on the top, and a pan of water on the bottom. The heating element cooks the meat on the grill with the heat it generates, instead of through heated metal like Foreman grills, letting your food sear and crisp without sandwiching it between two big plates. Meanwhile, any grease drips from your food past the heating element and into the water pan.You can cook food just like with a regular grill, turning and flipping the meat to evenly cook it over the heat. It means you can cook more delicate foods because you have greater control, and the texture is better because the food isn’t getting pressed. And yes, you can cook more than yakitori with it.I use a Livart LV-982 Yakitori grill, which you can pick up for less than $60. It’s fantastic for when I want to cook skewers, steaks, burgers, shrimp, and dense fish (I cook more delicate fish sous vide). They always come out great, with results similar to cooking on a propane grill. Just be careful and always make sure the water pan is full; without water under the grill, you’re just begging for a grease fire. Which has only happened once, which made me understand the need for the water pan, and hasn’t happened ever since I actually followed the directions. It also spurred me to buy a kitchen fire extinguisher, which is just a good idea.Water BoilerBoiling water is easy and not particularly technical. Why not make it even easier by making it way more technical? A kettle can boil water, whether it’s on the stove or an electric model. They can’t heat water to precise temperatures, though, or be programmed to automatically turn on and off at certain times. For that, you need a Japanese water boiler.Zojirushi is more than one of the kings of rice cookers. It’s also one of the biggest names when it comes to handling hot water. The Zojirushi ZD-WBC40TS is a 4-liter water boiler with a microcontroller just like the fuzzy logic rice cookers. It can boil water, sure, but it can also keep your water at 140, 175, 195, or 208 degrees Fahrenheit (great for making teas or soups that are best prepared delicately at sub-boiling temperatures). It can display the current temperature of the water, and has a timer function so you can get your water boiling hours later.These water boilers work more like countertop water dispensers than kettles. There’s a spout under a lip near the top of the dispenser, and it pours water at the touch of a button. The ZD-WBC40TS even has a cafe drip mode that reduces the flow of water so you can make drip coffee directly from the boiler. The drawback to all of these water-boiling tricks is the price; a MiCom water boiler will cost you over $100.Bento BoxesYou can totally be a grown-up with a lunch box if you want to. In fact, it’s a pretty big Japanese lunch tradition that lets you carry around a lot more than a sandwich and chips. Bento boxes are multi-compartment boxes designed to let you carry around a full lunch. In Japan that lunch is usually rice, some sort of protein, and pickled vegetables, but you can load it with anything. It’s great for leftover pasta.Bento boxes vary wildly in size, complexity, and style. The most common types are flat boxes with multiple compartments like this Skater bento box and stacked boxes with few or no compartments like this GRUB2GO bento box. Stacked boxes are usually held together with an elastic fabric band or kept in a drawstring bag (the more traditional design, like this rabbit patterned bento box).These bento boxes also have a slot to store chopsticks, and often even come with chopsticks (though the slots might be too small for forks and spooks, depending on the box).last_img read more

Buddhism one of many reasons for Rohingya crisis

first_imgEminent Iranian scholar S Javad Mazloumi. Photo: UNBThough everybody knows Buddhists as peace-loving people, Iranian scholar S Javad Mazloumi has said a new definition of Buddhism, seen in Myanmar, is one of many reasons why Rohingyas are suffering there and that definition needs to be corrected.”Everybody knows them as peaceful and peace-loving people. What we see in Myanmar is a new definition of Buddhism,” he told UNB in an interview expressing displeasure over the words used by some of their leaders in Myanmar referring to Muslims.Mazloumi, deputy for cultural affairs, said he had many meetings with Buddhists, Buddhist monks and great scholars in different countries. “Most of them believe they should correct this problem.”Sharing his understanding with fellow scholars on extremist view in Myanmar, the Iranian scholar said one group is trying to translate the Buddhism in a different way, which it is not the common in other countries.”If you ask them (Rohingyas) why don’t they have the identity of Myanmar, they will answer, they had it but was taken away,” he said as he completed his fourth visit to Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar district.Myanmar’s religious affairs and culture minister Thura Aung Ko recently said Rohingyas living in Bangladesh are being “brainwashed” and Bangladesh is not allowing them to return, according to international media.Earlier on 27 November, the Myanmar minister talked about the birth rates among the people of an unnamed religion apparently referring to Muslims.He said while Buddhists practise monogamy and they have only one or two children but an “extreme religion” encourages having three or four wives and giving birth to 15 to 20 children, international media quoted him as saying in a video published by Radio Free Asia.Myanmar refers to the Rohingyas as “Bengalis” apparently to suggest that they are from Bangladesh but Rohingyas say they are from Rakhine state of Myanmar.Asked whether the Muslim world is doing enough for Rohingyas, the Iranian scholar said, “Surely not.”He said there should be some practical programmes to help these oppressed Rohingya people saying “making statement is not enough”. “We’re just talking.”Mazloumi appreciated Bangladesh’s role in supporting over 1 million Rohingyas in Bangladesh and its continued efforts on how these vast people are managed in a better way.Talking about the repatriation of Rohingyas, the scholar, also member of the Iranian Supreme Hajj Committee said Rohingya people should be consulted well as they think the conditions for their safe life unfortunately is not in place.”Myanmar should guarantee that Rohingyas, once they return to Myanmar, will have peace, security and their basic rights,” he said adding that why should they return to Myanmar when they have a feeling of fear that they might be killed again upon return.Mazloumi added: “They think conditions are not safe yet.”About lack of unity, the scholar said the Muslims are divided under different names and titles that actually contributed to increased sufferings of Muslims around the world.”We’re divided into different groups, different titles, and we cannot help each other. More importantly, when we’re in a challenging situation, we don’t discuss real enemies. We’re losing all,” he said.Responding to another question, Mazloumi said there is no space of division in Islam though differences might be there. “These differences cannot make us divided. Division is a wrong.”He said their enemies want the Muslim world to be weak, they try their best, and unfortunately the Muslim world is asleep. “We neglect their (enemies) activities and actions and after a while we wake up, but by this time damage is done.”Mazloumi said they are going in a wrong direction as some people gave them the wrong address. “Some people gave us wrong address. We’re going to that wrong direction and losing our power. But unity is the solution for all.”Comparing the situation in the camps, he said it was very small community when he had first visited Rohingya camps before the latest influx in August 2017.”The presence of huge Rohingyas in the camps is clearly visible. With many new camps and these huge numbers of Rohingya people can make some problems as they need many things for their life.”He said Bangladesh is successful in managing these people so far as it is not so easy to distribute aids to these huge people.The Iranian scholar said the problems faced by Rohingyas have not been solved yet with this little amount of aid though the situation is far better than previous time.last_img read more

Govt may revoke proposed tax on savings instruments

first_imgThe government might retract its decision to double tax on savings certificates as the move is likely to draw massive criticism from the people.Four types of savings certificates are currently sold and the rates of yield are up to 11.76 per cent. Currently, around 20 million investors are involved in this sector.Currently, the tax is five per cent.Finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal recommended increasing the tax to 10 per cent in his proposed budget for 2019-20 fiscal.According to the finance ministry and the National Board of Revenue (NBR) sources, the government is currently considering two options.One is to cut the proposed tax on all types of savings certificates. The other is to cut proposed tax on family savings certificates and pensioner savings certificates.Only women can purchase family savings certificates while the pensioner savings certificates are for retired persons.The final decision will come from the prime minister, the sources said.The proposal to hike tax drew criticism from various quarters and many pointed out that it will directly affect the middle class, pensioners and small savers.”I don’t understand why he [finance minister] increased the tax at source on family savings certificates from 5 per cent to 10 per cent,” former agriculture minister Matia Chowdhury said, taking part in the budget discussion in parliament.The ruling party MP noted that many women in rural areas depend on the earnings from savings certificates and urged the government to reconsider its decision.She mentioned that the proposal came at a time when the government is providing various facilities to businessmen, increasing salaries and benefits of its employees and teachers and also giving various facilities to different sectors.Matia demanded that Mustafa Kamal withdraw his proposal and sought the prime minister’s special attention towards this matter.Meanwhile, the government continues to taking big loans from savings certificates.In 2014-15 fiscal, the target was to take Tk 90 billion (Tk 9,000 crore) from the sector, but in the end the government took Tk 287.05 billion (Tk 28,705 crore). The trend continued in other fiscals.In the first ten months of the current fiscal (July 2018-April 2019), the government took Tk 434.74 billion (Tk 43,474 crore) from savings certificates. The target of the government’s net borrowing from savings instruments is Tk 261.97 billion (Tk 26,197 crore) for the fiscal year.last_img read more

Buddha beyond time

first_imgGautam Buddha and his teachings have always played a pivotal role in India and South Asian parts of the world. An ongoing exhibition in New Delhi has marked the importance of His lessons.Hosted by Atul Todi, an ongoing exhibition ‘Finding Buddha’ is being held at the Convention Foyer at Indian Habitat Centre till March 24 in New Delhi, which has brought the sage’s lessons into prominence.”Buddha means the awakened one…someone who has woken up from the sleep of ignorance. This awakening happens with the recognition of one’s source of happiness,” said Todi. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfHe further added that, “For generations, Buddha’s paintings have shown him as a symbol of meditation. They do not imbibe the true message of Buddha or connect with today’s generation”.”It has no fixed time, geographical boundaries or defined monetary value. Buddha can be a moment in the rain or a sip of a freshly brewed coffee. He is in anything that awakens our mind and allows us to be in-tune with our inner self,” Todi said.Putting an emphasis on the importance of peace and stillness, Buddha has been portrayed in different images in varied forms. Each picture depicts Him either as an astronaut, or as playing guitar. He has also been shown on a scooter in of the pictures. Although the images are disparate, but every picture shows him in meditative posture.The exhibition focusses Siddhartha Gautam as a meditator and that he preached meditation to attain ‘Nirvana’ (suffering) to banish all desires from their lives.last_img read more

Campbell said Thomas didnt give an explanation fo

first_imgCampbell said Thomas didn’t give an explanation for the rough block, but the Cardinals star said he understands how the best players on opposing teams sometimes get targeted.The seven-year veteran wouldn’t comment directly on his feelings about Thomas, but he did say what missing time due to an injury means to him.“The thing about it is I want to be on the field playing games, and when stuff like that happens and I can’t play the game I love, it really hurts inside,” he said. “But the beauty of it is it wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. And (I’ll) be back in a week or two, maybe three. And I think this team we have is very special. We’re going to do some damage this year, so I’m excited to go back and team up with my guys and go win some games.”After the loss to Denver, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians called the chop block “the dirtiest play I’ve seen in 37 years of football.”And on Wednesday, the NFL reportedly fined Thomas $8,268 for the illegal hit.Arians wouldn’t comment on the penalty Wednesday, but Campbell did, handling it with class.“It was a max fine for an illegal block for a first time offender. It makes sense,” he said. “I’m glad the NFL did something, and hopefully he won’t do it no more.” In front of the media, Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas has yet to seem remorseful for executing a controversial chop block on the Arizona Cardinals’ Calais Campbell last Sunday — a hit that took the defensive end out of the game.However, Campbell said Thursday on the Big Red Rage on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that Thomas sent him a text message apologizing for the incident.“He sent me a text (Wednesday) and told me that he didn’t mean to do it and he was sorry and (said) good luck in getting healthy,” the defensive lineman said. “So that was good. I was happy to hear from him. It made me feel a little bit better about it, but the situation hasn’t changed; I’m still going to miss these next few games.” In four games this season, the defensive end has rang up 16 tackles, one sack, one pass defensed and he recorded his first interception of the season (which he returned 23 yards) in Sunday’s loss. Campbell is coming off perhaps his best year as a pro, when he posted 58 tackles, nine sacks, six passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble during the Cardinals’ 10-6 campaign. – / 53 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Blake Bortles, if you didn’t know, is the fourth-year Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback and No. 3 overall pick from 2014. Also, everyone thinks he’s very bad at football.His play during his team’s preseason game Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t elicit much hope that he can turn around what’s been a disappointing career so far.First, the evidence.Here is Bortles throwing a ball at the feet of a squared up and wide open Allen Robinson, who is a pretty good receiver. And here’s Bortles having the same trouble completing a ball to Robinson after the receiver beats a young defensive back down the field.Blake Bortles, ladies and gentlemen #Jaguars pic.twitter.com/5wBIJItElC— Cameron DaSilva (@camdasilva) August 18, 2017The second play drew boos from the hometown Jacksonville crowd.On the interwebs, it had one ESPN analyst predicting Bortles is well on his way to losing his job and finding himself with the Arizona Cardinals by next preseason as the team continues its search for Carson Palmer’s replacement. Just a prediction to file away: Blake Bortles in Arizona this time next year.— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) August 18, 2017Unfortunately for Cardinals fans, ESPN’s Bill Barnwell might not be joking about his guess.But many other Twitter folks were going all in on enjoying the terrible football playing by Bortles.
