first_imgBy Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsAn Akwesasne man facing charges in connection with a human smuggling case recently trumpeted by the Conservative government says the Nigerian network allegedly behind the underground operation has put a hit out on his life.Seth Lazore, 28, says he discovered the threat against his life while incarcerated in the Ottawa provincial jail following his arrest. Lazore said he was told the individuals who wanted to kill him were linked to the network allegedly involved in smuggling a Nigerian family of five into Canada through the U.S.The RCMP announced on Sept. 6 that Lazore and another Akwesasne man, Oren Lazore, 21, along with two men from Brampton, Ont., Emmanuel Omoghan, 46, and Felix Omoghan, 66, had been charged following a three month human smuggling investigation involving several police forces – from Toronto to Akwesasne – and border agencies in Canada and the U.S.The charges drew the attention of Public Safety Minister Vic Toews and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney. They issued a joint statement praising authorities for the arrests.The federal Conservative government has made cracking down on human smuggling a priority of their tough-on-crime agenda which features legislation that will impose mandatory minimum sentences on human trafficking convictions later this year.APTN National News has learned that the family -a mother, father and three children-travelled originally from Nigeria to Italy and then to the U.S. before they were allegedly taken into Canada by boat across the St. Lawrence River to Cornwall, Ont.The family was allegedly in contact with a Nigerian network which was involved in arranging their passage across the Canada-U.S. border.Lazore told APTN National News the family was in Chicago before they attempted to enter Canada.The RCMP would not comment on the case or confirm the nationality of the family.The Mohawk territory of Akwesasne sits about 120 kilometres west of Montreal and straddles the Ontario, Quebec and Canada-U.S. borders.Given its geography and the fierce nationalism of the Mohawks, the region has developed into a main corridor for smuggling for tobacco and guns going north and marijuana heading south.While he was in custody at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre, Lazore said he was told inmates in the jail were looking to kill him at the request of the network. While he had protection inside, Lazore said he took the threat seriously and said fear forced him to turn down a jail-house meeting with an APTN National News reporter at the last moment.Lazore said he quickly left the Cornwall, Ont., courthouse after his release following a bail hearing last Wednesday over worries a member of the network was in the courtroom.Lazore, who is a father of three children, was released after the mother of his long-term girlfriend put up a $1,500 surety and $5,000 bond. He was ordered into house arrest until the case comes to its conclusion. His conditions allowed him to find work and he recently found a job on a construction site.Lazore, who was raised by a single mother, grew up in and around Akwesasne and cared for his grandfather, Hubert Lazore, until the 87 year-old was felled by a stroke, said the charges against him should be tossed.All he did, he said, was help a family travel through Mohawk territory.“I didn’t do nothing wrong in my eyes and I’m sure in a lot of other’s eyes, just helping a family out get into Canada,” said Lazore, in the backyard of the Akwesasne home where he’s been ordered to live. “I don’t even think there is a border there…This is our land, this is the Mohawks’ land…The way I look at it, there ain’t no boundaries and borders around here.”He said the family was trying to escape a miserable situation in Chicago and get into Canada where they hoped to reunite with extended family and start a new life.“They were living a horrible life in Chicago,” he said. “They were saying they were getting their paycheques taking from them and everything out there, they were working basically for free. They were living on…maybe $100 a week…they were talking about coming to Canada, starting a new life, they would get loans or whatever.”During his bail hearing, Lazore was overcome by emotions at one point when he believed he’d be heading back to the provincial jail. Lazore said the Ottawa jail is worse than the U.S. federal penitentiary he spent 27 months in following a plea agreement on a 2004 indictment on marijuana distribution.“The way they got that place set up, it’s like the max. They have it set up almost as if you were a serial killer, almost as if you did a heinous crime and some people are only in there on little charges,” he said. “I don’t wish that up on anybody to go up in there….tension is tight in there, real tight.”Now Lazore, whose next court appearance is set for Sept. 25, says he’s trying to spend as much time as he can with his family in case another prison term locks down his future.“I am in a bad position right now, really bad position,” he said.jbarrear@aptn.calast_img read more

26 June 2007Violence between guerilla groups in Colombia has forced approximately 1,000 people to flee the eastern Arauca region over the past year and a half, the United Nations refugee agency reports. Violence between guerilla groups in Colombia has forced approximately 1,000 people to flee the eastern Arauca region over the past year and a half, the United Nations refugee agency reports.The area has long been a stronghold of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the National Liberation Army (ELN) which started fighting each other last year, according to the Geneva-based UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which has offices in Colombia.Some 1,000 people have come forward in the past 18 months and said violence had forced them out of their homes in a town that had previously counted only a few displaced families. UNHCR works in Arauca through a network of partners, including the Catholic Church and La Defensoria del Pueblo, Colombia’s human rights network. In view of the serious humanitarian situation, the refugee agency is stepping up its presence on the ground and took part in a fact-finding mission earlier this month to help tailor its intervention to meet the needs on the ground. Describing insecurity in the area in a news release, UNHCR said a few days before its team visited, unidentified gunmen shot dead local right-wing councillor, Alejandrina Rincon, in broad daylight as she walked in the town with her eight-year-old son. She had been threatened and other local leaders have also received threats. In the past two years, 10 teachers have also been targeted by one or other group and five had to flee, according to UNHCR, which warned that with local elections coming up in October, many are scared that more violence is on its way. In the scores of small villages dotted along the vast plains of Arauca, the situation is worse, the agency pointed out, because there, the fighting between the rival guerrilla groups is “at its most intense,” while locals report “the army and police are there only intermittently, if at all.” read more

A Norfolk musician will perform a recital in Italy this summer after winning first prize in a prestigious competition.Bryn Blackwood, a Simcoe native, won top honours at the 42nd annual Eckhardt-Gramatte National Music competition in Brandon, Manitoba in April.“I am absolutely thrilled to have been named the winner of the 2019 E-Gre Competition,” said Blackwood. “Learning, preparing, and connecting to this repertoire has been a joy.”Blackwood’s first place prize amounts to nearly $15,000. This includes a $6,000 cash prize, a residency and debut recital in Italy in July, and an eight to 10 city cross-Canada tour in the fall.“I’ll probably be playing the same things I did for the competition, because that’s what they want me to show off,” Blackwood said about his upcoming recital in Italy.“It’s nice because that’s in July and I don’t have to prepare an entirely new program.”To enter into the competition Blackwood had to send in 35 minutes of material, which organizers reviewed in order to choose their six finalists.All of the six finalists left with at least $1,000 in prize money each, which Blackwood says is unique for competitions where contestants can be sent home with nothing.The competition featured modern music, meaning everything the contestants played had to be from after 1950, 50 per cent of the works played had to be Canadian, and they each had to play a rendition of a song that was commissioned for the competition.The competition rotates between different instruments every year. This year was piano, previous years have been string instruments and vocalists.Blackwood also received the award for best performance of the commissioned piece.The pianist currently lives in Toronto. He has his Bachelor of Music from Western University, Master of Music from McGill University, and is working towards his Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of Toronto.While Blackwood is excelling at music now, it was not always his plan.“My plan was not actually to go to university for music, I was just incredibly indecisive,” he said regarding the beginning of his musical studies.He was not sure what he wanted to study at the post-secondary level so he decided to do a second year of Grade 12. This victory lap was when he decided to commit to music.The dates for Blackwood’s cross-Canada tour will be announced in the upcoming months.Local people will have a chance to see Blackwood perform later this month at his annual Simcoe recital at St. James United Church on Sunday May 26, starting at 3 p.m. For more information contact Cara Blackwood at 519-428-2001.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

first_imgBy Christina CauteruciThere’s a crew of new women in Congress who’ve become fast friends since the election. Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have become instant progressive icons and visible markers of a long-overdue shift in legislative demographics. They’ve posted loads of selfies together, called themselves a “squad,” tweeted support for each other’s policy ideas, and defended each other from right-wing detractors. Their fans have seen them as harbingers of hope in a dark time descending on a stalled-out Congress to help save America from itself.It’s important to remember, though, as Pressley told her Twitter followers over the weekend, that there have been vocal women of color pushing for progressive change in Congress for a long time. California Rep. Barbara Lee, who Pressley called a “big sister & mentor” in her tweet, is one of them. In a phone conversation earlier this month, I spoke to Lee about her role in the new, more progressive Congress, what it was like to be one of the few black women in national office in the 1990s, and what it might mean to have a “critical mass” in the legislature. Our conversation has been condensed and edited for clarity.Christina Cauterucci: I was looking through all the pictures you and other Democratic women posed for on the first day of the new Congress, and there was a palpable feeling of celebration. What was that day like for you?Barbara Lee: It was exciting. The younger and new members of Congress are very smart, they’re authentic, they’re passionate, they’re committed to their constituencies and to the country, to the world. And it’s just been wonderful being with them. I hope to be able to help them find their paths.But also, I have to say, just as a progressive African-American woman, they give me a lot of hope. They strengthen me. They really formed that bond that means a heck of a lot when you’re in a Congress where—for example, in 1998, I was only the 20th African-American woman ever elected to Congress since 1789. So this is really quite a happy moment and a really profound and positive development for the country.There seems to be an incredible camaraderie among this new class of congresswomen—they’re hugging each other in photos, calling each other sisters in their tweets. Is there always such a strong feeling of solidarity among new progressive members of Congress?There’s always solidarity. But I think this year is unique because you have so many women of color, and women from diverse backgrounds, and women who have broken so many glass ceilings. For example, Pennsylvania did not have one single woman in their delegation. Now we have—I believe it’s four. This is amazing. This is groundbreaking. It really tells me there’s no way we can ever go back. I think the excitement and the joy and the hope that this election brought was really a special and unique moment in history.I’ve been thinking a lot about power in numbers when it comes to race and gender representation in Congress. Some studies of women in business leadership suggest that there needs to be a critical mass of people from underrepresented groups to make a tangible difference, because one person alone can be more easily ignored or tokenized. Does that resonate with your experience in Congress?Absolutely. You know, it’s really good to have allies. And coming to Congress then, as a progressive African-American woman, it took a while to build the level of collegiality that others have, especially white men, because there were so few of us.In terms of speaking out in a meeting or at a hearing with new ideas—folks would shake their heads and say “Great,” or whatever. Then 10 minutes later they would reiterate the same thing I just said, as if it were new. [Laughs.] It’s just like being invisible. You know what that’s like, being invisible? But let me tell you: I wasn’t gonna let that happen. I was working for former Congressman Ron Dellums, who passed away in July. And when I started working as a chief of staff on Capitol Hill, there were maybe two African-American women as chiefs of staff, OK? Maybe three, but I think it was two. I had to represent Ron at meetings with Cabinet officials. And I’d walk into those meetings, and primarily white men were there, and I would engage in the meeting, and it was almost like I just wasn’t there. Or they didn’t recognize me as a chief of staff, or they would never call on me to ask my question or make my point. Or they sometimes didn’t know that I was a chief of staff, they thought I was another staffer just taking notes to take back to the congressman. You know, it was very ugly and demeaning, disrespectful.So I remember those days, and we’ve made a lot of progress, but let me tell you, we have a long way to go. You still have institutional biases, you have to break through all of that sexism and racism. You have to really confront that all of the time, whether it’s subconscious or conscious.[Congress is] still just a microcosm of America. It takes a while. But I think that we’re moving forward, we’re making progress. With this new Congress, you know, it’ll never go back to the days of long ago, when Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American congresswoman, was elected in the late ’60s.You know what it’s like to stand alone on an issue—I’m thinking specifically of your vote against the Authorization for Use of Military Force in 2001. [Ed. note: Lee was the only member of Congress to vote against the broad, still-active authorization of war.] What advice are you giving new members of Congress on speaking up, even if they’re alone?I think they all are very courageous and all have to know their bottom lines, what they bring to Congress, their values, who they are, and what they stand for. And it may not be the same thing, but you have to know how far to go for compromise, or how far you will allow yourself to go on any given issue. For me, as a daughter of veteran and someone whose dad was in World War II, Korea, and who was raised in a military family, I know that the use of force should only be the last option, recognizing that we have to make sure that our national security is secure. So for me, that’s a bottom line.For me, another bottom line is you do not cut public assistance and food stamps. I had a very difficult period in my life—I was a single mother with two young sons. And I was on welfare and food stamps and Medicaid. And I knew what it was like, and it was really hard. But in that moment because I had this bridge over troubled waters, like a lifeline, I’m not gonna allow, on my watch, my involvement in cutting any of this basic support for people and families and children who need it. And I’m gonna look out for others who may be in similar circumstances. So that’s a bottom line for me.[The new members of Congress] come with a lot of courage. Just to get here took a lot of courage—to break through, given the fundraising barriers and everything that you have to deal with. But now they’re here, and they’ve demonstrated how courageous they are. They just have to know how far they’re willing to compromise and what they stand for. And I think most of them know that.How do you see your role in this wave of new progressive women, especially women of color, taking seats in Congress?I hope I am a supportive peer who can really help them navigate the legislative process, and do exactly what they want to do in their congressional career—serving their constituents and how they want to go, what path they want to take. And now as a co-chair of the Steering and Policy Committee, I want to make sure they’re able to get to the committees that they want—to carve out what issues they want to address. In terms of the seniority system and how you navigate that—I’ve had a lot of experience … [with] ways to think out of the box and be creative in what I want to do when there are systemic and institutional kinds of roadblocks.So I want to help [new members of Congress] figure those out. But also, I have to tell you: They encourage me, and they give me a lot of insight, and I learn a heck of a lot from them. It goes both ways.last_img read more

first_imgStop Resetting My Apps blocks default apps resets on Windows 10 by Martin Brinkmann on October 28, 2016 in Software – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 12 commentsStop Resetting My Apps is a free program for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system to block the system from resetting default programs for certain tasks.One of Windows 10’s biggest usability issues is that the operating system may reset some or even all default apps or file associations after operating system updates.This can be extremely frustrating for the user, as it means that files or protocols will open in the default programs that ship with Windows 10 instead of user selected programs. Additionally, it means that you have to waste some time correcting the reset file associations again.Stop Resetting My AppsStop Resetting My Apps is a rather simple program for Windows 10 designed to block Windows 10 from resetting default apps.The program displays a list of default Windows 10 apps, Microsoft Edge, Mail, Photos, Movies & TV, Groove Music and 3D Builder, on start.All you need to do to block it from being set as the default app on the system is to click on it in the program interface. This adds a “stop” icon to the tile that marks it as blocked.Blocking won’t prevent the application from working on the computer. You can still run it and use all of its functionality.What it does is block the selected application from being set as a default app for any file extension or protocol.So, if you want Mail to be handled by Thunderbird or Gmail instead of the default Mail application, you simply click on it for that. Windows 10 cannot set Mail as the default handler for the mailto protocol anymore from that moment on.The same is true for any of the other applications the program supports. You could for instance block any app that you don’t use if you are unsure about some of the apps supported by Stop Resetting My Apps.You can undo any blocking by running the program again and clicking on its tile in the interface. This removes the “stop” icon from it and enables it for file associations and protocols again.Stop Resetting My Apps does not need to run in the background once you have made the changes. You can close the program afterwards without losing any of its functionality.Note: In case you are wondering how this works: You can set a NoOpenWith string in the Windows Registry to prevent specific apps from taking over file associations.So, here is what you need to do for that if you prefer the manual way:Tap on the Windows-key, type regedit.exe and hit the Enter-key. This opens the Windows Registry Editor. If you can, open a second Registry window for easier handling of the following operations.Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\Repository\PackagesLocate the application you want to block from being the default, and open App\Capabilities\FileAssociations there. This displays the list of file associations of that particular application.Take note of the value in Data, it looks like a long random string: AppXsq3757nydv3f9bx6862hv0t4z7ennqqdPlease note that this string may be different for any of the file types or protocols listed there.Switch to the second Registry Editor window, and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\ThatRandomString, e.g. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppXsq3757nydv3f9bx6862hv0t4z7ennqqdRight-click on it, and select New > String Value.Name it NoOpenWith, and keep its value empty.Repeat the process for any file association that you don’t want that particular app to be ever associated with again.Summary12345 Author Rating2.5 based on 8 votes Software Name Stop Resetting My AppsOperating System WindowsSoftware Category ProductivityLanding Page http://www.carifred.com/stop_resetting_my_apps/ Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgA few days ago, Firefox made announcements stating that starting from Firefox 70, which is planned to release in October this year, the browser will make two new changes favoring users and keeping them secure. First, it will notify users if their saved logins were part of any data breach. Secondly, it will prompt users if the web page they have landed on is not secure. Notifying users of saved logins that were a part of the data breach Firefox has partnered with popular data breach site, Have I Been Pwned, to notify users if their saved logins were found in data breaches. To start with, Firefox will scan the saved login credentials to see if they were exposed in a data breach listed on Have I been Pwned. If one is found, the user will be alerted and prompted to change their password. To support this, Mozilla will be integrating their independent Firefox Monitor service and the new Firefox Lockwise password manager directly into the Firefox browser. Mozilla will add an alert icon  next to the account profile in Firefox Lockwise, detected as being part of a breach. Clicking on the saved login will open its subpanel that displays an alert that the “Passwords were leaked or stolen” as part of a data breach. Compromised Password Notification in Firefox Lockwise Users will also be provided a “protection report” highlighting data breaches instances their logins were involved in. The current Firefox 69 Nightly builds includes a mockup of the ‘Protection Report’, which will list the type and amount of tracking and unwanted scripts that were blocked over the past 7 days. This mockup report is a mockup and not actual data from your browser. Mozilla to set up “not secure” indicators for all HTTP web pages Mozilla also announced that it will show a “Not secure” indication for all the websites in Firefox, starting with the Firefox 70. As we know, Google already has this feature activated on its browser starting with Chrome 68, which was released last year. Prior to this announcement, Mozilla used to indicate “not secure” only on HTTP pages that contained forms or login fields. “Mozilla argued that since more than 80% of all internet pages are now served via HTTPS, users don’t need a positive indicator for HTTPS anymore, but a negative one for HTTP connections”, according to ZDNet. Firefox Developer Johann Hofmann said, “In desktop Firefox 70, we intend to show an icon in the ‘identity block’ (the left hand side of the URL bar which is used to display security / privacy information) that marks all sites served over HTTP (as well as FTP and certificate errors) as insecure“. Mozilla started working on these developments way back in December 2017, when it added flags in the Firefox about:config section. These “flags are still present in the current stable version of Firefox, and users can enable them right now and preview how these indicators will look starting this fall,” according to ZDNet. Sean Wright, and infosec researcher told Forbes, “This is an excellent move by Mozilla and a step in the direction to have a secure by default web”.  He also added, many do not realize the potential implications of using sites over HTTP. “Even publicly accessible sites, even as simple as a blog, could potentially allow attackers to inject their malicious payloads into the site severed to the client. HTTPS can go a long way to prevent this, so any move to try to enforce it is a step in the right direction,” he further added. Wright has also warned the users that if you see you are browsing via an HTTPS site, it does not mean it is fully authentic. These sites may also be phished as hackers can purchase the certificates that mark a website as “secure”. Hence, a user has to be cautious while sharing their credentials online. He warns: “You should still pay close attention to links in emails.” Read Next A second zero-day found in Firefox was used to attack Coinbase employees; fix released in Firefox 67.0.4 and Firefox ESR 60.7.2 Mozilla is funding a project for bringing Julia to Firefox and the general browser environment Mozilla launches Firefox Preview, an early version of a GeckoView-based Firefox for Androidlast_img read more

first_imgAllianz Global: Tourism is down in Paris but up elsewhere in Europe RICHMOND, VA — Paris tourism continues to suffer one year after its famed Bataclan theatre was attacked by terrorists. According to an analysis of traveller flight plans by Allianz Global Assistance, the number of American travellers in Paris have dropped 12.8% during the 2016 winter holiday season, which runs from Thanksgiving through New Year’s.The company reviewed more than 650,000 Americans’ travel plans during the peak holiday season and found a significant decline in the number of tourists planning on visiting cities affected by terrorism.While Paris endured the summer vacation season with a moderate increase in booking interest, the City of Lights fell from 80,214 travellers in the 2015 winter holiday season to 69,975 in 2016. Similarly, the number of travellers to Istanbul fell by a whopping 60.2% while Brussels was down by 19.6%.The three cities lost a combined 19,082 travellers in 2016 versus the previous year. By comparison, the top six cities in Europe with major increases of between 16.1% and 30.8% added a combined total of 18,073 new travellers – still less than the amount lost by Paris, Istanbul and Brussels.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesThe cities that benefitted most from the redistribution of American travellers include: Amsterdam, Netherlands (+30.8%); Lisbon, Portugal (+29.0%); Venice, Italy (+19.6%); Vienna, Austria (+17.5%); Munich, Germany (+16.5%); and Budapest, Hungary (+16.1%).While some major cities will see a significant decrease in U.S. travellers visiting during the holiday months, the continued interest in exploring new destinations in well-established countries helped Europe as a whole record its modest 3.01% increase to 694,581 travellers in 2016, compared to 673,685 in 2015.“While it’s clear that concerns over terrorism have impacted travel to some cities in Europe, it’s encouraging to see that American travellers have opted to explore new destinations across the continent,” said Daniel Durazo, director of communications at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “We’re also noticing that travellers are considering the purchase of travel insurance so that they have the option to cancel or interrupt their trip should there be a terrorist event at their destination within 30 days of their travel.”More news:  Help Princess Cruises break the world record for largest vow renewal at seaFor more information go to allianztravelinsurance.com.

The 3-year-old male lion apparently left Karoo National Park on Friday through a rain-eroded hole under a fence and disappeared into “terrain (that) is mountainous, with many river valleys, thus making tracking difficult,” the park service said.Several private trackers joined the search on Wednesday, said Alex van den Heever, co-founder of Tracker Academy, which is participating.“The lion is covering vast areas,” van den Heever said. Tracks were seen 21 kilometers (13 miles) from the park.One tracking dog named Bullet is also being used, a park official said.The area, in the Karoo semi-desert, is sparsely populated. Beaufort West, on the park’s edge, has some 34,000 inhabitants.“Members of the public who may see the lion or any signs of it are requested not to confront it and to contact” a parks official, the SANP statement said.If trackers find the lion, a veterinarian will dart it with a tranquilizer. Parks staff will return the lion to the park where it will be fitted with a satellite tracking collar, said park service spokeswoman Fayrouch Ludick.While lion escapes are rare in South Africa, in Kenya the growing human population is settling in areas used by the lions’ prey, said Paul Udoto, a spokesman for the Kenya Wildlife Service. JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Trackers on foot and helicopter were searching for a lion after it escaped from a national park in a remote, arid region of South Africa, authorities said.After a farmer reported that he’d found lion tracks on his land, the park’s trackers, who belong to the indigenous San group, began following the tracks with the farmer, South African National Parks said in a statement. A helicopter being used for a wildlife census also joined the search. The carcass of a gemsbok, a large antelope, was placed to lure the lion but it didn’t appear.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Pitt NewsIn the NFL, coaches have the ability to communicate with quarterbacks and a few defensive players via wireless radios but in college, for whatever reason, communication is restricted to hand signals and yelling at the top of your lungs. The way Pat Narduzzi sees it, it’s 2015 and the technology is clearly there to use, so college football should follow step up and follow suit.Narduzzi’s biggest reason for calling improved communication stems from a concern with teams stealing signals, especially coming from the defensive side of things.“If you’re the offensive coordinator, you send the play in and I don’t know if it’s a real play or a fake play,” he told the Orlando Sentinel. “I’ve got to send my defense in there. I have no choice, I’ve got to give the real defense – I can’t give them a fake defense.”“As your sitting up in the box and you’re watching me put my play in, you know it’s real, it ain’t fake. How many different signals do you have? I put my play in and you get to a chance to look and say, ‘He just did that signal again and last time they blitzed. Now the offense looks to the sidelines and gets something good for that blitz.” Back in February the NCAA rules committee announced plans to try out some new technology including different forms of wireless communication and helmet cams,. A few months ago, Air Force head coach and NCAA rules committee chairman Troy Calhoun stated that the committee is open to exploring ways to improve sideline communication, as long as the playing field remains level.“This far into the 21st century to have the technology that we know is available, we want to make sure it’s molded in way which is very helpful in college football without creating a huge imbalance when it’s time to go compete.” Calhoun stated back in February. Several conferences proposed experimenting with the technology at five or six December bowl games this next bowl cycle.Helmet cameras that would allow coaches (and probably eventually TV audiences) to experience what players are seeing on the field were also discussed in depth at those committee meetings back in February, but for now, Narduzzi would settle for the coach-to-player communication to be improved.Overall, I think you’d be hard pressed to find a majority of coaches –  on either side of the ball – opposed to improving sideline communication because who wouldn’t want a direct line of communication with players pre and post snap? Seems like the benefits far outweigh any red flags, as long as the playing field is level.last_img read more
