Avengers Endgame DeFeminized Edit Is Worlds Worst Fan Film Trend

first_img Remember the scene in Avengers: Endgame where all of the women superheroes team up to ferry the Infinity Gauntlet across the battlefield? Sure it was awesome seeing characters like Scarlet Witch and Gamora and Okoye all pose together, but I understand the feminist criticism that noted the scene was a little shallow. If anything, this empowering moment drew unfortunate attention to how little screen time these women had gotten otherwise.But you know what? I would defend that scene to the death now that some anonymous absolute loser has been circulating a “de-feminized” edit of Avengers: Endgame, as reported by NPR. It’s pretty dumb, and our friends at AskMen agree.In case you’re blissfully unfamiliar with the dumbest fan film trend of our modern Disney-driven blockbuster era, “de-feminized” edits first reared their ugly heads when nerd misogyny came after Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 2017. Total dorks who don’t deserve the likes of Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran produced a pirated edited copy of the film that removed those characters, basically all female characters, and all instances of men supposedly doing anything “feminine” or not being in charge in general. If you managed to get through it, the result was incomprehensible.And the same goes for this “de-feminized” edit of Avengers: Endgame. Now you could argue that the conclusion to the Marvel Cinematic Universe has too many characters, even after Thanos snaps away half the universe. But the answer definitely isn’t removing all the women characters! These chumps are still worked up about Brie Larson and Captain Marvel’s success so of course she’s gone. Hawkeye’s archery lessons with his daughter? Gone. Men no longer hug. Spider-Man never needs rescuing. Black Panther is also suspiciously absence. And we don’t even know how they handled Black Widow or Morgan Stark.Sorry to let you know this even exists, but at least now you know to avoid it.

Hotel Association names enhanced communication as vital to health and tourism strategy

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvienciales, 21 Jan 2015 – When Norovirus hit the Turks and Caicos in mid-2012 it cost the country big time; entire resorts were forced to shut down, cancel guest reservations and it postponed the start of the 2013 new school term for at least two institutions. Extensive and elaborate cleaning exercises were mandatory and the disease caused by fecal matter getting onto food, interrupted an upward trend in tourism arrivals for the TCI. Speakers yesterday at the opening of a joint workshop for more healthy hotel & restaurant environments reflected on the damage done financially and reputationally; among them, Michel Neutelings, President of the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association, who said enhanced communication must be a part of this new strategy. “The Norovirus outbreak two years ago, 50% was the fact that the Norovirus actually happened and the other 50% was also not such a good communication effort and sometimes it created more of a panic than was necessary. We all have to place very, very good measures and as you said earlier on Dr. we learnt valuable lessons from what happened in that situation and our economy could be affected if we do not create good communication.”Medical Services Director for the country, Dr. Nadia Astwood said the goal is to keep tourism revenue healthy by ensuring workers and guests are also keeping healthy through improved practices.“Hotel based surveillance is just one approach among other aims and strategies of the tourism and health program which includes promoting health in the tourism workforce with the special attention to prevention of non-communicable diseases; to implement food and environmental safety training and certification and improved coastal and recreation water quality through implementation of environmental management systems and guidelines to name but a few expected outcomes.” That workshop, which has brought in Dr. Lisa Indar from CARPHA continues today and will conclude with an action plan discussion led by Chairman of the Tourist Board, Kingsley Been.

MovieBob Reviews BLACK PANTHER 2018

first_imgStay on target Is Black Panther good?Yes!Okay, but is it “especially” good or just another really well-polished, solid Marvel movie?No, it’s an exceptional film – Marvel or otherwise. Probably the best of its type since The Avengers (the first one.)What’s it about?Set not long after the title character’s introduction in Captain America: Civil War, the film takes place all but entirely in Wakanda. Which is a secret civilization hid in central Africa whose science, technology and culture have been light-years ahead of the rest of the world for centuries owing to being built on a gigantic supply of the valuable mineral “vibranium.” But as the newly-crowned King, T’Challa, ascends to both the throne and the symbolically power-armored mantle of “The Black Panther;” the outside world is finally catching up with Wakanda and threatening to discover their long-kept secrets. When a confrontation with an old enemy reveals a surprisingly new and deadly threat, the new King and his allies they encounter new challenges. They must face not only the unanswered mistakes of their ancestors but the prospect of how their world can open itself up and change for the better without putting Wakanda in danger or seeing Wakandan weapons used the endanger the rest of the world.Sounds like a lot more going on than just a superhero movie.Yeah, the most immediately notable aspect of the film is that it’s so much bigger than the title character alone. Imagine if Guardians of The Galaxy had just been called “Star-Lord” – or if the first Star Wars had been “Skywalker” for an idea of just how much more there is to Black Panther than The Black Panther himself. It is really a movie “about” Wakanda both storywise AND thematically. I.E. the idea of what a hyper-advanced/uncolonized Black African civilization could be and what such a civilization’s presence would mean in the world. Where the king wearing space-age jungle cat armor to go on superhero missions is just one part of an intricately-woven narrative that involves the royal family, T’Challa’s friends, his rivals, the various tribes that comprise Wakandan society, the geopolitical ambitions of its government and it’s placed in the wider world.Who directed?Ryan Coogler, late of Fruitvale Station and Creed; here cementing his stature as one of the great filmmakers of his generation – and clearly one of the most effectively ambitious. At times, it almost feels like Coogler, having been tasked with “merely” creating a Black counterpart to the Iron Man or Captain America franchises. But instead decided “Y’know, while we’re here and have Disney’s money to spend – why not also make Black Star Wars, Black James Bond and Black Lord of The Rings?”Who’s in the cast?Chadwick Boseman is T’Challa, giving a finely nuanced performance as a guy who’s ready for everything about being a King except the emotional strain. Lupita Nyong’o is a socially-conscious spy named Nakia, Danai Gurira is Okoye, general of the all-female royal guard. But Leticia Wright has a star-making turn as T’Challa’s younger sister and chief weaponsmith, something like a young female answer to Tony Stark. Daniel Kaluuya from Get Out in a very different sort of role as a childhood friend of T’Challa’s, relative newcomer Winston Duke making a VERY strong impression as M’Baku, essentially leader of “The Big Strong Dude Tribe” and Andy Serkis is an absolute riot as Klaw. Additionally, Angela Basset and Forest Whitaker are on hand as Wakanda’s Queen Mother and High Priest, and Martin Freeman is back as the CIA operative from Civil War.Is it weird that people are acting like this is the first Black superhero movie?I mean… it’s the first Black-led Marvel movie, which means it’s the first Black superhero movie under the current “gold standard” of the genre. But I think a lot of that sort of hype is coming more from a place of being hyped about a quality the movie has that’s not fully defined in the public consciousness yet. There’s never been a huge-budget afro-futurist blockbuster and the idea of a Black director and predominantly Black cast getting together with a truckload of Disney’s money to spend on imagining a hypothetical Black African civilization unmolested by Western colonialism/slavery/etc. is a really big, powerful idea. I can definitely see where the excitement is coming from.Is there anything “wrong” with it?Not really, to be honest. All the important stuff is really, really solid and more often than not outright excellent. What minor issues I noticed were technical: There’s some dodgy CGI in Act 3 and a handful of not-perfect green screen composite shots. But the sequences they occur in are so well-staged, directed and imaginative, it’s hard to care too much. And as with most good action movies of the last decade or so I wish it was about half an hour longer just to let things “breathe” a little more, but… is “so good I want more of it really a ‘negative’ trait?Look, this is the sort of movie where it’s easy to get caught up in the “historically important” aspect, so it’s prudent to be skeptical and objective. But Black Panther is the real deal – a genuine masterpiece of popcorn filmmaking that raises the bar really high for 2018 blockbusters and a near-perfect of… well, itself.

Kolkata tramcar reinvents itself to offer a culinary ride

first_imgKolkata: The trams in the City of Joy may not have kept up with the fast pace of the metropolis, but they refuse to quietly roll off into the sunset. A newly refurbished tramcar, designed as a fine-dining 28-seater restaurant, will trundle out from October 13, offering a culinary ride to customers. Named “Victoria on Wheels”, the service, an innovative way to keep the tram service alive, will run from Shahid Minar to Kidderpore, offering non-vegetarian and vegetarian meals and some sightseeing on the way. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life Aimed at generating revenue for the loss-making Calcutta Tramways Company (CTC), the restaurant on wheels — decked up with artwork depicting various famous tourist spots in the city — is also equipped with air-conditioning, a music system and bio-toilets to attract tourists who seek the unique experience of dining in a moving tramcar. The Victoria, a catering chain, which has bagged the contract for 10 years through a tender, will pay Rs 1.6 lakh per month to CTC. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed “We are adopting various innovative approaches to generate revenue for the tram company as our fare collection has gone down over the years,” a senior CTC official told IANS. Patronage of the tram service, considered one of the oldest modes of public transport, has fallen drastically because of the onslaught of taxis, private buses and India’s first Metro service – and its routes have also been reduced to less than 30 from more than 50 earlier. Once upon a time the tram service was the main mode of transport in the city, but not any more – even though the tram fare is still at the lowest at Rs 6 and Rs 7. “From a mode of transport it has become a ‘mode of experiment’,” said J.P. Mishra, a CTC employee. Somnath Das, another employee, said though various factors have led to the tram service being curtailed, attempts are being made to continue its operation. “Besides allowing two tramcars to become a restuarant,” Mishra said, “We also offer exclusive tram rides on popular routes during Durga Puja at special rates.” Victorial on Wheels will make two rides each covering the lunch and dinner hours, and during Durga Puja there will be three rides in the evening. The package offer is Rs 999 for a non-vegetarian meal and Rs 799 for vegetarian food, including a welcome drink, starters, main course and dessert during a 90-minute ride from Shahid Minar to Kidderpore and back.last_img read more

How to perform event handling in React Tutorial

first_imgReact has a unique approach to handling events: declaring event handlers in JSX. The differentiating factor with event handling in React components is that it’s declarative. Contrast this with something like jQuery, where you have to write imperative code that selects the relevant DOM elements and attaches event handler functions to them. The advantage with the declarative approach to event handlers in JSX markup is that they’re part of the UI structure. Not having to track down the code that assigns event handlers is mentally liberating. This article is taken from the book React and React Native – Second Edition by Adam Boduch. This book guides you through building applications for web and native mobile platforms with React, JSX, Redux, and GraphQL. To follow along with the examples implemented in this article, you can find the code in the GitHub repository of the book. In this tutorial, we will look at how event handlers for particular elements are declared in JSX. It will walk you through the implementation of inline and higher-order event handler functions. Then you’ll learn how React actually maps event handlers to DOM elements under the hood. Finally, you’ll learn about the synthetic events that React passes to event handler functions, and how they’re pooled for performance purposes. Declaring event handlers In this section, you’ll write a basic event handler, so that you can get a feel for the declarative event handling syntax found in React applications. Then, we will see how to use generic event handler functions. Declaring handler functions Let’s take a look at a basic component that declares an event handler for the click event of an element: Find the code for this section in GitHub. The event handler function, this.onClick(), is passed to the onClick property of the element. By looking at this markup, it’s clear what code is going to run when the button is clicked. Multiple event handlers What I really like about the declarative event handler syntax is that it’s easy to read when there’s more than one handler assigned to an element. Sometimes, for example, there are two or three handlers for an element. Imperative code is difficult to work with for a single event handler, let alone several of them. When an element needs more handlers, it’s just another JSX attribute. This scales well from a code maintainability perspective: Find the code for this section in GitHub. This input element could have several more event handlers, and the code would be just as readable. As you keep adding more event handlers to your components, you’ll notice that a lot of them do the same thing. Next, you’ll learn how to share generic handler functions across components. Importing generic handlers Any React application is likely going to share the same event handling logic for different components. For example, in response to a button click, the component should sort a list of items. It’s these types of generic behaviors that belong in their own modules so that several components can share them. Let’s implement a component that uses a generic event handler function: Find the code for this section on GitHub. Let’s walk through what’s going on here, starting with the imports. You’re importing a function called reverse(). This is the generic event handler function that you’re using with your element. When it’s clicked, the list should reverse its order. The onReverseClick method actually calls the generic reverse() function. It is created using bind() to bind the context of the generic function to this component instance. Finally, looking at the JSX markup, you can see that the onReverseClick() function is used as the handler for the button click. So how does this work, exactly? Do you have a generic function that somehow changes the state of this component because you bound context to it? Well, pretty much, yes, that’s it. Let’s look at the generic function implementation now: Find the code for this section on GitHub. This function depends on a this.state property and an items array within the state. The key is that the state is generic; an application could have many components with an items array in its state. Here’s what our rendered list looks like: As expected, clicking the button causes the list to sort, using your generic reverse() event handler: Next, you’ll learn how to bind the context and the argument values of event handler functions. Event handler context and parameters In this section, you’ll learn about React components that bind their event handler contexts and how you can pass data into event handlers. Having the right context is important for React event handler functions because they usually need access to component properties or state. Being able to parameterize event handlers is also important because they don’t pull data out of DOM elements. Getting component data In this section, you’ll learn about scenarios where the handler needs access to component properties, as well as argument values. You’ll render a custom list component that has a click event handler for each item in the list. The component is passed an array of values as follows: Find the code for this section on GitHub. Each item in the list has an id property, used to identify the item. You’ll need to be able to access this ID when the item is clicked in the UI so that the event handler can work with the item. Here’s what the MyList component implementation looks like: Find the code for this section on GitHub. Here is what the rendered list looks like: You have to bind the event handler context, which is done in the constructor. If you look at the onClick() event handler, you can see that it needs access to the component so that it can look up the clicked item in this.props.items. Also, the onClick() handler is expecting an id parameter. If you take a look at the JSX content of this component, you can see that calling bind() supplies the argument value for each item in the list. This means that when the handler is called in response to a click event, the id of the item is already provided. Higher-order event handlers A higher-order function is a function that returns a new function. Sometimes, higher-order functions take functions as arguments too. In the preceding example, you used bind() to bind the context and argument values of your event handler functions. Higher-order functions that return event handler functions are another technique. The main advantage of this technique is that you don’t call bind() several times. Instead, you just call the function where you want to bind parameters to the function. Let’s look at an example component: Find the code for this section on GitHub. This component renders three buttons and has three pieces of state—a counter for each button. The onClick() function is automatically bound to the component context because it’s defined as an arrow function. It takes a name argument and returns a new function. The function that is returned uses this name value when called. It uses computed property syntax (variables inside []) to increment the state value for the given name. Here’s what that component content looks like after each button has been clicked a few times: Inline event handlers The typical approach to assigning handler functions to JSX properties is to use a named function. However, sometimes you might want to use an inline function. This is done by assigning an arrow function directly to the event property in the JSX markup: Find the code for this section on GitHub. The main use of inlining event handlers like this is when you have a static parameter value that you want to pass to another function. In this example, you’re calling console.log() with the string clicked. You could have set up a special function for this purpose outside of the JSX markup by creating a new function using bind(), or by using a higher-order function. But then you would have to think of yet another name for yet another function. Inlining is just easier sometimes. Binding handlers to elements When you assign an event handler function to an element in JSX, React doesn’t actually attach an event listener to the underlying DOM element. Instead, it adds the function to an internal mapping of functions. There’s a single event listener on the document for the page. As events bubble up through the DOM tree to the document, the React handler checks to see whether any components have matching handlers. The process is illustrated here: Why does React go to all of this trouble, you might ask? To keep the declarative UI structures separated from the DOM as much as possible. For example, when a new component is rendered, its event handler functions are simply added to the internal mapping maintained by React. When an event is triggered and it hits the document object, React maps the event to the handlers. If a match is found, it calls the handler. Finally, when the React component is removed, the handler is simply removed from the list of handlers. None of these DOM operations actually touch the DOM. It’s all abstracted by a single event listener. This is good for performance and the overall architecture (keep the render target separate from the application code). Synthetic event objects When you attach an event handler function to a DOM element using the native addEventListener() function, the callback will get an event argument passed to it. Event handler functions in React are also passed an event argument, but it’s not the standard Event instance. It’s called SyntheticEvent, and it’s a simple wrapper for native event instances. Synthetic events serve two purposes in React: Provides a consistent event interface, normalizing browser inconsistencies Synthetic events contain information that’s necessary for propagation to work Here’s an illustration of the synthetic event in the context of a React component: Event pooling One challenge with wrapping native event instances is that this can cause performance issues. Every synthetic event wrapper that’s created will also need to be garbage collected at some point, which can be expensive in terms of CPU time. For example, if your application only handles a few events, this wouldn’t matter much. But even by modest standards, applications respond to many events, even if the handlers don’t actually do anything with them. This is problematic if React constantly has to allocate new synthetic event instances. React deals with this problem by allocating a synthetic instance pool. Whenever an event is triggered, it takes an instance from the pool and populates its properties. When the event handler has finished running, the synthetic event instance is released back into the pool, as shown here: This prevents the garbage collector from running frequently when a lot of events are triggered. The pool keeps a reference to the synthetic event instances, so they’re never eligible for garbage collection. React never has to allocate new instances either. However, there is one gotcha that you need to be aware of. It involves accessing the synthetic event instances from asynchronous code in your event handlers. This is an issue because, as soon as the handler has finished running, the instance goes back into the pool. When it goes back into the pool, all of its properties are cleared. Here’s an example that shows how this can go wrong: Find the code for this section on GitHub. The second call to console.log() is attempting to access a synthetic event property from an asynchronous callback that doesn’t run until the event handler completes, which causes the event to empty its properties. This results in a warning and an undefined value. This tutorial introduced you to event handling in React. The key differentiator between React and other approaches to event handling is that handlers are declared in JSX markup. This makes tracking down which elements handle which events much simpler. We learned that it’s a good idea to share event handling functions that handle generic behavior.  We saw the various ways to bind the event handler function context and parameter values. Then, we discussed the inline event handler functions and their potential use, as well as how React actually binds a single DOM event handler to the document object. Synthetic events are an abstraction that wraps the native event, and you learned why they’re necessary and how they’re pooled for efficient memory consumption.

The Crystal Method makes its Costa Rica debut

first_imgNo related posts. Ken Jordan was worried that the television wasn’t loud enough. After a few drinks at the Hotel Real InterContinental lobby bar in Escazú, southwest of San José, Jordan’s wife, Janine, convinced him that we wouldn’t judge his and Scott Kirkland’s first new album in four years as The Crystal Method based solely on the speaker quality of a hotel TV.“I guess the volume only goes up to 63 for the neighbors,” Jordan mused after hooking up his laptop and hitting play. Dia Framptom’s breathy singsong voice floats out of the speakers above the heavy techno beat below. The TV speakers boom. “Just imagine this with super subwoofer bass!” Jordan whoops.The television, with its scrolling advertisements for hotel food options and local calling rates was a far cry from the sound system at Vertigo, the San José club where the band is set to perform on Sept. 7, as the last stop in a Central American tour leading up to the release of the band’s first new album since “Divided by Night,” in 2009.The duo has never performed in Central America in their 16 years together as The Crystal Method, but Jordan is no stranger to Costa Rica. The electronic musician has been vacationing here for the last six years at his house on the Pacific Coast in Malpaís, on the southern Nicoya Peninsula.Any performances as The Crystal Method, however, were in doubt earlier this summer when Kirkland suffered a dangerous infection following brain surgery that derailed summer tour plans and the new album’s release date.Down at the bar Jordan wears a dark blue shirt and shorts, already anticipating the beach despite the cool rainy night outside. He orders an Imperial beer, de rigueur for Gringos nostalgic about their time in Costa Rica. Despite owning a home here, Jordan lamented that it’s been over a year since he’s been down to visit.“We’ve been looking for Central American shows, it’s a standing order to our agent,” he said, adding that they were excited to be performing in Costa Rica.The Crystal Method will also have shows in Guatemala and Panama City.   Scott Kirkland (left) and Ken Jordan (right) of The Crystal Method. The band’s up-coming self-titled album will be their fifth in the 16 years since their Platinum album “Vegas” was released. Courtesy of The Crystal Methodcenter_img After we introduced ourselves, Jordan leaned over the table and asked, “What happened with that murdered turtle conservationist?” referring to the recent arrests in the Jairo Mora case.Jordan and Janine have a strong interest in ocean conservation and “green” living. The Crystal Method has performed at the Sea No Evil benefit for the Sea Shepard Conservation Society, a marine conservation organization headed by fugitive Capt. Paul Watson, who has been on the lam since Costa Rica issued an extradition request for him following an alleged attempted shipwrecking off Guatemala’s Pacific Coast in 2002.Watson has been a vocal critic of the government’s handling of the Mora case and announced he would name one of his fleet’s ships after the slain conservationist, as previously reported by The Tico Times.The Crystal Method even has a “green” rider, which includes requests for organic foods and aims to reduce waste by insisting on no plastic or paper products that would likely end up in a landfill.“I’ve learned everything about living ‘green’ and the environment from [my wife],” who runs Green Wave, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for environmental sustainability.The couple has also done volunteer education outreach with the Rainsong Wildlife Refuge in Cabuya, an organization that trains volunteers to patrol beaches to protect sea turtles, among other activities, and fundraising for the Escuela Futuro Verde, a bilingual primary school in Cóbano, Puntarenas, through Janine’s NGO.Jordan admitted though that when he comes to the rocky shore of Malpaís all he really wants to do is relax and work on his surfing.Vacation was probably the last thing on Jordan’s mind when a medical emergency late last spring scrambled plans for a summer tour and the album’s planned release date.Kirkland wrote a statement posted to the band’s website explaining that he had been experiencing “short, painful headaches.” An MRI revealed a benign posterior fossa arachnoid cyst in his brain and a doctor recommended brain surgery to address to cyst, since there could be complications from Kirkland’s on-stage antics.Kirkland and Jordan were able to get back to work on the album briefly before Kirkland contracted an infection from the surgery that sent him to a hospital intensive care unit for 10 days, scrapping any hopes of a summer tour.“We didn’t want him to rush back. We didn’t want to postpone anything, we just said, ‘everything is canceled, there’s no new release date, just get well,’” Jordan said.Kirkland has since recovered and will be back at a keyboard next to Jordan at Vertigo.“He’s back to jumping around on stage,” Jordan added. Back in the hotel room, Jordan’s response to the music is more sedate, bobbing his head to the beat as he sits on the edge of the bed.“Even though we’re making completely electronic, computer-driven music we’ve always tried to give it a really human sound,” he said.When asked how the self-titled album stacks up against previous Crystal Method releases, Jordan didn’t offer many specifics but reflected that “Divided by Night” suffered from too much collaboration with other artists. “We think the newest is always the best,” Jordan said.“Play ‘Funk Muffin,’” Janine said, “It’s my favorite.”Jordan leans over her to reach the laptop’s keyboard. “OK, one more,” he said and pressed play. The Crystal Method will play at Club Vertigo in Edificio Centro Colón, on Paseo Colón in San José, Costa Rica, on Saturday, Sept. 7.  Facebook Commentslast_img read more

The Seahawks fell in overtime to the St. Louis Rams on the road, while the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers notched convincing wins in their respective openers.Here’s what transpired in the division in Week 1: Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals 31, New Orleans Saints 19Arizona naysayers used the offseason to call the 2014 Cardinals “lucky” due to the fact that Bruce Arians’ team was able to win a lot of close games on their way to an 11-win season and a playoff appearance. It was fitting in Week 1 that the Cards got a chance to win another close game by dominating the fourth quarter and making plays when the game was in the balance. Leading 17-13 entering the fourth, the Cardinals outscored the Saints 14-6 the rest of the way. The clincher was a 55-yard touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to David Johnson on a 2nd-and-6 at the Arizona 45-yard line, when everyone in the stadium expected a run to melt the clock.Palmer threw three touchdown passes in the win, and Arizona is now 14-2 in the last 16 games started by the veteran.St. Louis Rams 34, Seattle Seahawks 31 (OT)This anticipated matchup was arguably the best game of the opening weekend in the NFL. St. Louis quarterback Nick Foles hit tight end Lance Kendricks on a 37-yard touchdown pass with :53 left to tie the game at 31-31 and send it into overtime. After kicker Steven Hauschka opened the extra frame with a botched pooch kickoff (or was it an onside kick?), the Rams got a Greg Zuerlein field goal to take a three-point lead. Facing a 4th-and-1 from the St. Louis 42-yard line, Russell Wilson handed off to Marshawn Lynch, who was stoned by Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers for a game-clinching 1-yard loss. center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories San Francisco 49ers 20, Minnesota Vikings 3Did you stay awake for this one?
