Kathleen Martens APTN NewsRexall PharmaPlus has apologized after two Indigenous teenagers say they were made to feel like thieves in its Comox Centre Mall store last weekend in British Columbia.The apology came after the mother of one teen sent an email to the company’s head office about how her 15-year-old daughter and 17-year-old friend say they were treated.“I’m impressed with Rexall’s response,” Carla Voyageur said of a promise by a senior manager to visit the store, speak to employees, and provide “sensitivity training.”Voyageur said a “rude” female manager at the Rexall told them they were under surveillance.Before that, at a different store, a male employee asked to see their hands were empty before they left the store.Her daughter’s friend vented her frustrations on social media.“Is this how native women are treated??” the teen wrote. “As if we are thiefs and want to attempt to steal at one store – which we were NOT.”Voyageur said the girls told her they were followed, stared at and made to feel badly about themselves while browsing makeup at the stores.The teen added in her post: “I doubt you’d have treated two non-Indigenous people with such disrespect.”Voyageur said her family moved to Vancouver Island a few months ago from Manitoba. She said they have now received warnings about “racism in the Comox Valley.”A spokesman for Rexall confirmed receiving the mother’s complaint.“On behalf of Rexall, we sincerely apologize for this unfortunate situation,” spokesman Derek Tupling said in an email to APTN News.“We take every complaint very seriously, and following a thorough review of the circumstances, this situation should have been handled differently…The store manager will also be reaching out to both individuals directly and inviting them back to the store to apologize in person.”Voyageur said the incident generated a family discussion about how the girls behaved in the store and what kind of customer service they should expect. She said they told her this never happens when they are with “non-Aboriginal friends.”Voyageur noted complaints were made to both stores but only Rexall responded.“These are responsible, goal-oriented teenagers,” she said. “I’m sorry this happened to them and for them.”firstname.lastname@example.org
The group of nine celebrities – from Georgia, Ghana, Jordan, Nepal, Pakistan, Peru, Sudan, and South Africa – have teamed up with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Stop TB Partnership to underscore the urgent need for continued financial support for the global fight against the disease. The overwhelming majority of people with TB can be cured by a six-month drug treatment costing as little as $25. Untreated, however, the disease can be lethal. Earlier this year, WHO reported that for the first time the number of people falling ill with TB each year was declining, but warned that current progress is at risk due to under-funding.The agency’s most recent data, published in the World Health Organization (WHO) 2011 Global Tuberculosis Control Report released in October, showed that the number of TB deaths fell to 1.4 million in 2010, after reaching 1.8 million in 2003.However, the report also found that the current progress being made was at risk from under-funding, especially efforts to combat multi-drug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), a form of the disease that fails to respond to standard first-line drugs.The nine celebrities are Jordanian actress Rania Ismail, Ghanaian pop singer Obour, Pakistani actor Behrooz Sabzwari, Sudanese television presenter Awad Ibrahim Awad, Georgian theatre director Zaal Chikobava, Nepalese actors Deepak Raj Giri and Deepa Shree Niraula, South African television personality Gerry Elsdon and Peruvian journalist Sonia Goldenberg. Established in 2001 by WHO, the Stop TB Partnership seeks to realize the goal of eliminating TB as a public health problem and, ultimately, to obtain a world free of TB. It comprises a network of international organizations, countries, donors from the public and private sectors, as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). 5 December 2011A new initiative to combat tuberculosis (TB), an illness which claims the lives of over one million people each year, has recruited international celebrities in an effort to maintain awareness towards eradicating the disease, the United Nations health agency announced today.

Good news from Mannheim. Bjarte Myrhol is recovering successfully after his tumor operation, and is feeling better as days go by. This has made the RNL people quite happy, and everybody is waiting for his return to the field, but still it’s a mystery when that will happen, and for sure not at least 6 more weeks. However, it is indeed good news to hear that Bjarte is to be expected on the field in near future. ← Previous Story Kehrmann new Lemgo captain!

Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Image: RollingNews.ie Short URL Image: RollingNews.ie 17,418 Views THE HIGH COURT heard today that permanent orders restraining trespass and intimidation could be made with the consent of named protesters who had taken part in disruptive nationwide protests outside a number of Dawn Meats factories.Similar consent orders were made against named protesters blockading plants owned by ABP and Slaney Meats. Mr Brian O’Moore SC told the court that consent permanent orders could be made against named defendants.Mr Justice Charles Meenan was told a compromise had been reached between named protesters and Dawn Meats, ABP and Slaney Meats which earlier this week obtained temporary restraints against protesters and was today seeking to attach and commit to prison one particular protester Seamus (otherwise Mex) Delahunty, of Mooncoyne, Co Kilkenny.Mr Lyndon MacCann SC, who appeared with barrister Stephen Walsh for Dawn, said a motion against Delahunty seeking to attach and commit him to prison for breaching of High Court orders could be struck out by consent.MacCann SC said consent orders permanently restraining Delahunty and Declan Ryan, Liam Cunningham, James Kennedy, John Hassett, Michael Power, James O’Shea and Tom Fitzpatrick could be made by the court by consent of the named defendants with no orders for costs.The orders restrain all of them from impeding, obstructing, hindering or in any way interfering, directly or indirectly, with access to or egress from Dawn factories at Grannagh, Co Waterford; Meadow Meats, Rathdowney, Co Laois; Hazel Hill, Ballyhaunis, Co Mayo; Ardnageehy, Charleville, Co Cork and Greenhills, Beaupark, Slane, Co Meath.The orders not only permanently restrain the named defendants in the proceedings but apply to their respective servants or agents or any persons acting in concert with them or with knowledge of the making of the orders, restraining such people from engaging in conduct that is intimidating or abusive of Dawn Meats staff or customers and suppliers and at factories owned by ABP and Slaney Meats.A solicitor for Delahunty said there had been some confusion as at least three people by the name of Delahunty in Mooncoyne were also known as “Mex”, and added that papers had been served in error on an uncle of Delahunty.Judge Meenan said the attitude of Delahunty was entirely appropriate and the correct way to deal with the application before the court.“A considerable amount of common sense has broken out,” Judge Meenan said. He made the orders requested by Dawn Meats, ABP and Slaney Meats and consented to by named defendants and granted all of them, should protests continue, liberty to apply to the court.Earlier this week the High Court had granted Dawn Meats, ABP and Slaney Meats temporary injunctions restraining named defendants from intimidating suppliers and staff or continuing to blockade factories.The court had heard that the blockades were threatening the putting in place of a multi-million-euro export deal with China whose hygiene and processing inspectors had eventually been allowed into the factories.BallyjamesduffOn Friday evening, RTÉ reported that a protester drove a tractor towards a wall at a plant in Ballyjamesduff, Co Cavan. A Garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that Gardaí were called to an incident at Oldcastle Road in Ballyjamesduff. No arrests, they said, had been made and inquiries are ongoing.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 03 Dec 2015 – The Opposition party is apparently amazed that some members of the House of Assembly either voted no or were absent when a Private Members Motion called for an investigation into a debt collection company. Hon Goldray Ewing, the Member from Blue Hills called for a Select Committee to be established to investigate whether TOLCO, or The Outstanding Loan Company was being too ‘heavy handed’ with those indebted to the now dismantled, TC Invest. Reports are TOLCO is trying to confiscate people’s homes and for the Member, this is just too much. Ewing explains that the Premier together with three other members of his Cabinet, namely: Hon Donhue Gardiner, Hon George Lightbourne and Hon Amanda Missick went absent from the Chamber before the vote. Still the motion passed with vocal objection from Governor’s Appointed Member, Hon John Philips who said he would have liked to hear some suggestions. The Governor’s other appointed member, Hon Lillian Missick explained recommendations would come only after an investigation of a Select Committee. TOLCO was established in 2012 under former Governor Ric Todd, during the interim administration. Chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee and Opposition Leader, Hon Sharlene Robinson in her presentation on the motion said records bear out that there had been no real push to collect outstanding loan monies, that there was a hasty process of legalizing the TOLCO entity, that TOLCO is being directed by some allegedly dodgy individuals and that the Special Committee is necessary as a lack of resources has hindered proper reporting on TOLCO by the Auditor General’s office. It is said that some $2.8 million in non-performing loans was outstanding at the time TOLCO was set up. The PDM says they have now written to the Speaker of the House, Hon Robert Hall about why he has not yet appointed the Select Committee.

BILLERICA, MA – In a joint publication released on Monday by the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC), the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Medication Assisted Treatment and Directed Opioid Recovery (MATADOR) Program was highlighted as one of only five national best practices for providing medication assisted treatment (MAT) in jails.The publication, Jail-Based Medication-Assisted Treatment: Promising Practices, Guidelines and Resources from the Field, was released as jails and houses of correction across the country look to expand in this area. The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office has previously been recognized as a Center of Innovation by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) for the MATADOR program.“I am proud the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is recognized as a national leader and welcome the opportunity to share our work in the fight to save lives and improve public safety,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian. “With the implementation of MAT in jails, Sheriffs are innovating by providing new programs to treat addiction and reduce future incidents of crime.”The MATADOR Program began in 2015 as Middlesex County continued to witness a rise in overdose deaths linked to the opioid crisis. With a decade of experience studying and implementing public policies to combat the effects of increased opioid use, Sheriff Koutoujian initiated MATADOR to utilize incarceration as a window of opportunity to address the factors that led to criminal behavior, including drug use.Two years after the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office began its MAT program, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health released its Chapter 55 analysis which confirmed the critical importance MAT in jails. The report found that individuals leaving incarceration are 120 times more likely to succumb to a fatal overdose post release compared to the rest of the adult population.“Combatting the opioid epidemic demands new ideas and thinking throughout all areas of government,” Koutoujian said. “We stand ready to assist our colleagues in their efforts to implement MAT programs that will continue to drive innovation in this area.”MATADOR participants have been classified at a 90% risk of reoffending — as determined by a risk assessment tool — demonstrating that the 23% recidivism rate among participants is clear evidence it is saving lives and reducing crime.(NOTE: The above press release is from Middlesex Sheriff’s Office.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

The Legislative Council is moving forward with their lawsuit to stop Medicaid expansion. In the meantime, both the legislature and the Walker administration are working with consultants to find ways to reduce the cost of the Medicaid program.Download AudioLawyers for the Legislative Council are considering filing a motion in Superior Court in the next few weeks that would kick off the next phase of the case.In late August, Superior Court Judge Frank Pfiffner ruled against a preliminary injunction that would have blocked Medicaid expansion from starting on September 1st. In that decision, he said the Legislative Council failed to prove it was likely to win on the merits if the case moved forward.But Senate Majority leader John Coghill still thinks the legislature has a strong case against the governor:“Does the governor have the authority to get the state entangled in things that the legislature by law is supposed to appropriate for? I think we have to get the answer to it. This just brings the answer up very clearly in my mind.”The case hinges on whether the Medicaid expansion population is an optional or required group under federal law. The Governor needs legislative approval to add an optional group to the program.Coghill knows a final decision in court won’t come quickly- possibly not until after next year’s legislative session. He thinks there’s support for continuing Medicaid expansion in the legislature. But he says that support hinges on another issue that will be front and center during the legislative session- Medicaid reform:“My expectation is the reforms are very important because our regular Medicaid population payment system now is just not sustainable to our budget, and it’s not sustainable in our growth pattern.”This month, the Legislative Budget and Audit Committee approved hiring a consulting firm to study Medicaid expansion and reform. And Coghill says he sees the lawsuit as a way to put pressure on the governor to work with the legislature, to bring down the cost of the state’s Medicaid program.Governor Walker included several cost cutting reforms in the Medicaid expansion bill he introduced last session. And the state’s health department is working with a consultant to look for other ways to reduce Medicaid costs and streamline services.Representative Les Gara, an Anchorage Democrat, says there is broad support for Medicaid reform:“There’s no need to keep the pressure up. The Governor understands, Democrats understand, Republicans understand, we need to find ways to save money.”Nearly 1000 Alaskans have enrolled in Medicaid expansion since the state began accepting applications at the beginning of the month. But about half of those enrollees transferred to Medicaid from a state program that paid for healthcare for very low income residents with chronic or terminal medical conditions.
IANSThe Indian Davis Cup team is probably going to Pakistan after a long gap of 55 years to play a tie against the hosts in September. The last time India travelled to the neighbouring country to play a Davis Cup tie was in March 1964. They managed to win the tie, which was held in Lahore, 4-0.The All India Tennis Association (AITA) has stated that the central government may allow the Indian players to travel to Pakistan for the tie. “We have written to the government and hopefully we will go to Pakistan, that’s the impression we have,” AITA Secretary General Hironmoy Chatterjee was quoted as saying by PTI on Wednesday.”It’s not a bilateral series, it’s (like) a World Cup, so the government will allow. I am confident we will go and play in Pakistan. We will announce it in a day or two. Pakistan Federation has mentioned that the tie will be played in Islamabad,” he further added.The last tie between the two rival nations was played in 2006 in Mumbai which India won 3-2. Mahesh Bhupathi, Leander Paes, Prakash Amritraj and Rohan Bopanna were all part of that team. Before that India had played with Pakistan in Malaysia, 1973. Prajnesh Gunneswaran is one of India’s key playersScreengrabThe current Indian Davis Cup team has players like Prajnesh Gunneswaran who is ranked 94 in the world and world number 154 Ramkumar Ramanathan. These two give India an upper hand over their opponents. Pakistan are not a major force in tennis but they have doubles specialist Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi who reached the US Open final by teaming up with India’s Rohan Bopanna in the past.Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) President Salim Saifullah told PTI that they will host India on the grass courts of the Pakistan Sports Complex. “We are hopeful of earning much-needed revenues for tennis during the live broadcast of the grass court tie as Pakistan and India sporting events garner a lot of interest.”He further added that they are pretty much confident that the Indian government would let their team play the tie in Islamabad as it is after 13 years that both the countries will meet on a tennis court.Last year Pakistan hosted Uzbekistan, Korea and Thailand in their previous ties. It will be interesting to see if India go to Pakistan and how it affects the sporting relationship between the two countries that have been affected due to political troubles.
Mirza posted a message for Shoaib on TwitterArif Ali/AFP/Getty ImagesHer husband may not have got the farewell she desired but Sania Mirza tried her best to make her husband, Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik, feel happy about his long and, at times, illustrious ODI career. The Indian tennis star posted a message on Twitter where she conveyed to her hubby how proud she feels of him.”‘Every story has an end, but in life every ending is a new beginning’ @realshoaibmalik. You have proudly played for your country for 20 years and you continue to do so with so much honour and humility. Izhaan and I are so proud of everything you have achieved but also for who you are,” Sania wrote on her timeline. This tweet was posted by Mirza on the occasion of her husband’s retirementTwitterIt can be recalled how Mirza was targeted by Pakistani netizens after the loss of their team to India and the bad performance of Shoaib. A video of the couple sitting at a restaurant where some of their friends were smoking sheesha became viral and it was believed by many that the outing was on the eve of the match. Even prominent Pakistani celebrities got involved in commenting about the supposed lack of seriousness on the part of Mirza and Malik.Sania strongly responded to these comments but then decided to go off Twitter. Meanwhile, Malik, whose performance had been very poor in this World Cup, was dropped from the team and his replacement Haris Sohail proved to be very successful. This denied the veteran Pakistani batsman a farewell match.However, the Pakistani team showed their appreciation for the retiring player by giving him a guard of honour. Interestingly, Sania wrote the message of appreciation not only on her behalf but also on behalf of their newly-born son Izhaan. Even the official 2019 World Cup handle tweeted photos of Malik’s teammates congratulating him and called the player a legend.Malik started his career as an off-spinner who could bat well in the lower order. However, in 2004, under the coaching of Bob Woolmer, he was suddenly given the no.3 spot during that year’s Asia Cup and that proved to be the turning point of his career as he became a very successful middle-order batsman.
Professional video games tournaments, so-called electronic sports or eSports, are becoming increasingly big business. In fact, it has reached a point where parents may actually encourage their kids to go pro after viewing the latest earning figures.The e-Sports Earnings website has posted the top 100 pro gamers based on how much money they have earned over their careers solely from eSports tournaments. These aren’t small figures. In 100th place is Polish player neo who has earned a grand total of $66,183.28, with his most lucrative game being Counter-Strike. Move up to 50th place and we see the Korean player JangBi. He has earned $128,347.99 by mostly competing in StarCraft: Brood War.The money starts to increase substantially when we enter the top 10. The 10th place pro gamer earned $267,699.10, and 5th place $367,902.11. But top of the list is a name many gamers will know quite well: US pro-gamer Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. Over the course of 35 tournaments he has earned a massive $454,544.98. Over half of that has been collected playing Painkiller ($240,550.00).Becoming experienced enough to compete with these guys takes a lot of hard work and training, just like anything you want to get good at. But the money is clearly there to be made, and if you’re serious (and good enough) it could actually turn into a career.It’s also worth pointing out that the totals listed for these pro-gamers are just for eSports tournaments. They should all be suplementing that income with sponsorship deals and other tournament series. Fatal1ty is a good example of this, having had a series of ASRock PC gaming components, and even gaming food, carry his name or official backing.

We are not there yet, but competition is growing in the market. While there are signs the market has begun to mature, there also are signs it could expand into new territory. The portable ultrasound market has flourished over the past decade, and with Fujifilm’s acquisition of Sonosite (the firm credited with opening the market up) in December 2011, the trend seems set to continue. Now that there are systems the size of iPhones, the point-to-care market penetrated by Sonosite’s exclusively portable machines is more important than ever as other companies try to find their own avenue into it. Among them are GE, Hitachi, Fukuda, Mindray, Toshiba, Philips, Samsung and Siemens, which all offer their own models. The question now is, are there new ways to sell it?Point-to-care is any area where a physician is in direct contact with the patient. Several markets are emerging with potential for the use of a portable ultrasound system. One market expert, Harvey Klein, Ph.D., has been involved in the ultrasound industry since 1975, and set up his own consulting firm, Klein Biomedical Consultants (KBC), in 1980. Klein has published a long series of reports on the subject and delivered numerous talks, including for the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), as well as a presentation entitled, “Portable Ultrasound Devices: Threat or Opportunity?” at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in 2005, just as the market began to explode.“The markets which saw the beginning of ultrasound many years ago were radiology, OB/GYN and cardiology. These are the three major traditional markets,” said Klein. “When you use the term point-to-care market, we refer to several emerging markets — emergency medicine, anesthesiology, critical care medicine and MSK [musculoskeletal].” While the traditional three were largely responsible for the growth of the ultrasound market until five to seven years ago, the emerging markets are driving it now with the arrival and penetration of portable systems. Three Types of PortablesPortable, or compact, ultrasound devices can be broadly split into three categories. First, there is the laptop, often brought to a patient’s bedside. Like almost all laptops, they weigh between 10 and 14 pounds. Secondly, there are hand-carried systems, weighing between five and eight pounds. This is where Sonosite carved itself an effective niche with, for example, the Sonosite Edge. These systems can be taken out as necessary. Third are the handheld or hand-operated systems that weigh less than a pound. They can accompany the physician anywhere.The appeal of portable ultrasound lies in the possibility of using the technology anywhere to get a fast and accurate read on a patient’s condition. It is this benefit that helped Sonosite become the sole supplier to the U.S. Army, which equips medics with the devices to triage battlefield injuries.The emerging markets, such as MSK, are good examples of the convenience of using portable ultrasound to do a quick scan, said Klein, especially in non-serious situations, when having a huge machine brought over from an ultrasound department would be unnecessary.Portable systems are not designed for high performance. Ultrasound technology has made big advances over the years, but portable systems need only to deliver the basics to fulfill the requirements of MSK and other emerging markets, said Klein. However, the speed of portable ultrasound can be extremely important in addressing very serious situations. For example, using a portable device would cut out time needed to set up a traditional scan and allow a physician to identify something like a sudden and life-threatening hemorrhage in a patient much more quickly. Future Possibilities for PortablesToday, the point-to-care market is well penetrated, and the portable ultrasound market as a whole continues to show double-digit growth, between 15 and 20 percent annually. That growth is expected to continue for a few more years, until the market fully matures. According to Klein, the question now is whether new potential markets can be penetrated successfully to stimulate a second wind of growth. One major potential market Klein pinpoints is primary care, specifically for small handheld systems. This market will grow if handheld ultrasounds become incorporated into the standard-of-care — as commonplace as a stethoscope. The basic obstacle to this happening is price — current devices are simply too expensive for most practitioners. The Siemens Acuson P10, for instance, can cost nearly $8,500. However, competition naturally drives prices down, and it is only a matter of time before a new face with nothing to lose enters the market, said Klein.Another possible growth market is pre-hospital. It is easy to envision paramedics making use of a handheld system to beam images ahead to the hospital. Ambulances already are full of equipment, and a space-saving device like a handheld ultrasound would make a lot of sense. This is another individual market within primary care that has huge potential though it, too, may be difficult to penetrate. Training Key to Future Growth“The real issue,” said Klein, “is whether a company wants to spend money on educating users, because that can be fairly costly. Companies don’t want to put a little handheld system in everyone’s pocket without their being adequately trained. The issue is, what is adequate training? That’s the $64,000 question.”The price issue could be resolved, but proliferation may still come to naught if there are a number of physicians who are not trained. And if they are trained but inexperienced, there is a good chance that they could fail to identify something obvious and refer a patient to the ultrasound department, and they might just send them on to radiology, to something they understand better. “If you’re always doing [the scans] with normal patients, you’re not going to learn a darn thing,” Klein added.Training is not a new challenge, however. “Sonosite was able to invest the money in education and really did a very good job,” Klein said. “They were responsible, really, for the growth in the emerging markets.” Other vendors followed, and with “more feet on the street,” competition drove further growth. While training may have provided an earlier breakthrough, for now it can be a lower priority. “The focus should be on trying to get the price down,” said Klein. “I think the price can be cut and vendors can still maintain a decent profit margin.”SIDEBAR:A Range of Portable Models AvailableThe portable ultrasound market continues to grow, with several players offering systems. Here are a few of the products currently on the market:• SonoSite, which was recently purchased by Fujifilm, offers several models of laptop and handheld ultrasound systems.

Geoff DeCenzo, VP of president alternative valuations for JVI Solutions, moderated the panel, which took on the theme of “”The Great Debate”” from Five Star’s conference.[COLUMN_BREAK]Speaking before a packed audience at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, the panelists took turns debating estimates for annual appraisal volume, where so-called active appraisers will go in an age of evolving technology, and whether professionals are keeping up with market demand.Addressing a shortage of well-paid jobs for appraisers, Mohler told the audience that “”opportunities [are] out there. Appraisers need to think outside of the box.””Most people recognize that value is not a spot price,”” he said. “”If you were to send 10 ethical very honest appraisers to the same home or the same day, you’ll still get the same range of values.””The appraisal industry remains a hot-button one for mortgage industry professionals.

Top Stories Arizona shuffled their deck of quarterbacks in the offseason, leading new head coach Bruce Arians to declare that the Cardinals’ quarterback room “is as good as anybody’s in the league.”Brinson disagrees. In fact, he’s got new Arizona starter Carson Palmer ranked 26th on his list of NFL signal callers, leading off the ‘Grizzled’ category.Feels like Palmer’s been around forever and it feels like he’s not considered the same talent he once was. Oh, right. He’s not. That’s why he was traded for peanuts from Arizona to Oakland. Palmer produced a big season with the Raiders last year, but I don’t know that I trust his arm strength or decision making to produce the way he did when he would’ve once been considered on top of this list.Palmer threw for 4,018 yards and 22 touchdowns for a woeful Oakland team that finished 4-12 in 2012. He’s ranked ahead of only Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden, Jacksonville’s Blaine Gabbert, the Jets’ two-headed monster of Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, Oakland’s combo of Tyler Wilson and Matt Flynn and Buffalo’s quarterbacks. – / 43 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments Share The position of starting quarterback in the National Football League is the most glamorous in all of sports.It’s arguably also the most important.Will Brinson, a NFL writer for CBSSports.com, recently wrote an article in which he ranked all 32 projected starting quarterbacks in the league and split them into categories ranging from ‘Elite’ to ‘Grizzled.’Not surprisingly, Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, New England’s Tom Brady, Denver’s Peyton Manning and New Orleans’ Drew Brees comprised the ‘Elite’ category. And maybe equally as unsurprising, the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback combo of EJ Manuel and Kevin Kolb ranked 32nd on Brinson’s list.
