The Giants’ likely goners and bargains in a quieter free agency

The Giants’ likely goners and bargains in a quieter free agency | New York Post

At this time a year ago, the Giants moved into free agency armed with $56.6 million in salary-cap space — only four teams hit the open market with more — and a spree was anticipated. Thus, when the Giants in rapid fire landed Olivier Vernon, Janoris Jenkins and Damon Harrison for nearly $200 million, the size of the contracts was staggering, but the spending frenzy was not.

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s681/sh/fde4dea6-8ad6-421c-aa17-f7febffd8856/275ad310e1104112b589269c9a3cce82

Teams do not want to be in position for huge free-agency spending in consecutive years — it is a sign of a bad and often mismanaged team. The Giants this year arrive at free agency $13.1 million under the salary cap, and only the Cowboys, Chiefs, Chargers and Eagles have less money to spend. As opposed to last year’s splash, the Giants this time around will look to make some ripples in the shallow end of the pond.

Finding additional cap space is not difficult — the Giants can rework some contracts or cut a few fringe veterans — but this has all the makings of a subdued free-agency year for the Giants.

“You take a look at free agency, and if you have a chance to hit with some clean players you feel good about, that can make you better, then you take your shot,” coach Ben McAdoo said last week at the NFL Scouting Combine. “If not, you move on and look forward to the draft.”

Free agency officially opens up at 4 p.m. Thursday, but teams can begin negotiations with player agents — it’s called legal tampering — Tuesday. This is why Thursday, at approximately 4:01 p.m., more than a handful of deals already will have been secured.

Of the Giants’ 17 unrestricted free agents, only a few are viewed by the front office as important to try to bring back. Jason Pierre-Paul already has been hit with the franchise tag, so he is not going anywhere in 2017, and the hope is a long-term contract can be worked out, as the Giants do not want to be burdened with the $16.9 million cap hit for JPP that comes with the franchise tag.

The most coveted Giants player figures to be defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who is young (he turns 25 in three weeks) and an established starter. The Giants like him and want to keep him but, as they were four years ago with Linval Joseph, they are prepared to see Hankins leave. They have a load of money invested in their defensive line, and Hankins could command $8 million-$10 million a year on the open market. The Giants also would like to bring back linebacker Keenan Robinson, a deal more likely to happen.

Given how good the Giants were on defense in 2016 and how disappointing they were on offense, it seems safe to assume the focus will be on adding pieces along the offensive line, at tight end and running back and trying to find a receiver with size. There are reports the Giants have interest in Terrelle Pryor, who is coming off a 77-catch, 1,007-yard breakthrough season with the Browns. Pryor is big (6-foot-4) and fits the profile but wants to get paid big money and probably will get it, which would eliminate the Giants as contenders.

Not all of those areas on offense can be addressed in free agency, and McAdoo disputed the notion the thrust this year will be adding players to that side of the ball.

“I don’t think you look at it like that,” McAdoo said. “You go through the evaluation process, and whether it’s free agency or the draft, you try to come up with the best players you can that make the most sense for the long-term health of the organization.”

Fans are imploring the Giants to find a replacement at left tackle, allowing Ereck Flowers to move to the right side. This is not an appetizing group of left tackles in free agency — Andrew Whitworth (Bengals) is excellent but is 35 — and the fits might not be right for the Giants.

John Jerry, the starting right guard in all 16 games last season and a starter in 40 games the past three years, is an unrestricted free agent, and the Giants would like to find a more explosive run-blocker at that position. So while fans and the media obsess about ditching Flowers, the Giants are searching for a new starting guard. From his Packers days, McAdoo is familiar with T.J. Lang, a Pro Bowl guard coming off hip surgery.

Other than the Giants tagging Pierre-Paul, the only one of their own free agents to re-sign thus far has been long-snapper Zak DeOssie (two years, $2.3 million). Kicker Robbie Gould went 10-for-10 on field goals last season — he missed three extra points — but is headed to the open market, where proven kickers such as Steven Hauschka and Greg Zuerlein are unrestricted free agents for the Giants to consider.

Disney builds prototype room with ‘ubiquitous wireless’ charging

Disney develops room with ‘ubiquitous wireless’ charging – CNET

energysquare-1-2.jpg

Goodbye charging pads?

Josh Goldman/CNET

Disney Research is taking wireless charging to a whole new level.

The scientific and tech arm of the entertainment giant has built a prototype room with “ubiquitous wireless power delivery” that allows several devices to be charged wirelessly in much the way we get internet access through Wi-Fi. By tapping quasistatic cavity resonance, researchers discovered they could generate magnetic fields inside specially built structures to deliver kilowatts of power to mobile devices inside that structure.

“This new innovative method will make it possible for electrical power to become as ubiquitous as WiFi,” Alanson Sample, associate lab director & principal research scientist at Disney Research, told Phys.org. “This in turn could enable new applications for robots and other small mobile devices by eliminating the need to replace batteries and wires for charging.”

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s681/sh/fde4dea6-8ad6-421c-aa17-f7febffd8856/275ad310e1104112b589269c9a3cce82

Historically, mobile-device owners have been forced to plug their products into a charger to refresh a battery. Wireless charging, however, ditches the cord and allows users to simply rest their device atop a charging pad to add juice. Disney’s approach eliminates the need to be on that pad.

All you have to do is be in the room and your device will start charging automatically. And depending on where you are in the room, delivery efficiency can be as high as 95 percent, researchers said.

There is one potential issue: you have to not mind being in a room constructed mostly of aluminum, that includes the walls, ceiling and floor. There’s a copper pole in the middle of the room, and 15 discrete high quality factor capacitors that separate the magnetic field from the electric field.

More Than 250 Black People Were Killed By Police In 2016 [Updated]

U.S. police killed at least 258 black people in 2016, according to a project by The Guardian that tracks police killings in America.

Thirty-nine of these people were unarmed. Four were killed by police stun guns and another nine died in custody, a continuing problem in American jails. But the majority of black people killed by police were fatally shot.  

Based on a tracker from The Washington Post, at least 232 black folks were shot and killed. (The Guardian’s figures include all deaths resulting directly from encounters with law enforcement, while the Post counts only people who were shot and killed by police.)

The Post found that 34 percent of the unarmed people killed in 2016 were black males, which is quite disproportionate since black men make up only 6 percent of the U.S. population. There was also a considerable uptick in deaths caught on camera via cellphone and police cameras.  

Take the case of Keith Lamont Scott, who was shot and killed by an officer in Charlotte, North Carolina, in September. Scott was the 173rd black person to be fatally shot by police in 2016, based on The Washington Post tally. 

Police were searching for another man when they came across Scott, who they claim was armed. Charlotte police Chief Kerr Putney said in a news conference on Tuesday that officers told Scott to drop his weapon, but that Scott got back into his car and came out again still holding the gun. 

A woman who identified herself as Scott’s daughter recorded the shooting’s aftermath on Facebook Live. Scott, according to her and other witnesses, did not have a gun and was disabled. Scott’s killing has touched off violent protests in Charlotte.

A day before Scott was killed, police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, released several videos depicting the death of Terence Crutcher. The 40-year-old was shot and killed by police on Friday after officers saw his stalled SUV in the middle of the road. Initially, the police department said Crutcher had not followed orders to put his hands up. 

The released videos, however, show Crutcher walking toward his car with his hands in the air. 

Warning: This video contains graphic content. 

We’ve seen back-to-back deaths like this before. In July, Philando Castile was shot and killed in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. His fiancee, Diamond Reynolds, filmed a graphic video that showed Castile bleeding to death from gunshot wounds. The officer “shot him three times because we had a busted taillight,” Reynolds says in the clip.

The day before Castile was killed, Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old father of five, became the 135th black person killed by police in 2016.

Police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, fatally shot Sterling following an encounter with Officers Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake. The two officers were responding to reports of a man carrying a gun, threatening others and selling CDs in front of a Triple S convenience store.

Two videos of the incident, apparently filmed by witnesses, were released to the media. One showed a detained Sterling lying on the ground as officers hovered over him before shooting him at close range. A second video offered a clearer perspective, showing that Sterling wasn’t reaching for his pockets and didn’t have anything in his hands.

Alton Sterling was shot and killed by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in July.

Since the 2014 death of 18-year-old Michael Brown at the hands of police in Ferguson, Missouri, the media has reported extensively that police arrest and kill black men at far higher rates than other groups. Six out of 10 black men say they have been treated unfairly by police because of their race, according to a 2015 study.

Based on The Guardian’s data, black males between the ages of 15 and 34 are nine times more likely to be killed by police than any other demographic. This group also accounted for 15 percent of all 2015 deaths from law enforcement encounters, even though black males in this age range make up just 2 percent of the U.S. population.

In 2015, The Guardian estimates, at least 306 black people were killed by U.S. police. The Washington Post puts the number of black people who were shot dead in 2015 at 258.

Activists have called for diversifying America’s predominantly white police force. But interactions between black officers and black civilians can be stained by violence as well. A 2007 study found that black residents of Washington, D.C., felt as though black cops treated them more harshly than white officers did. A 2006 study of Cincinnati police records discovered black officers were more likely than white officers to arrest black suspects.

“Race is a trigger for police brutality,” Jack Glaser, an associate professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, told The Huffington Post in 2015. The reasons for this may lie in the history of policing in America and the fact that modern-day policing, at least in the South, can trace its lineage to slave patrols.

But statistics and history aside, Keith Scott, Terence Crutcher, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile didn’t deserve to die.

“Sterling was a black man who lived in an America that consistently devalues, disrespects and destroys black lives,” HuffPost Black Voices editor Lilly Workneh wrote in July. “Now is not the time to stay silent about these injustices. Black men and women have raised their voices to declare that black lives matter and to say the names of those who have died unjustly.”

“Alton Sterling, father of five,” Workneh added. “May he rest in peace.”

Same goes for all the others. May they rest peacefully.

This post has been updated to incorporate data on police killings through the end of 2016.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article said The Washington Post estimates that police killed 285 black people in 2015. That number is actually 258. The article also previously misstated Scott’s middle name as “Lamar.”
