  • Is tonights final Cardinals preseason game all ab

    first_imgIs tonight’s final Cardinals preseason game all about the Ryans?Not Rex or Rob.Or even Meg or Jeri.But Ryan Williams versus Ryan Lindley?They don’t even play the same position, and yet the two may be auditioning for Bruce Arians’ final rose on the Cardinals roster.Williams is a former second-round pick who hasn’t been able to stay healthy for longer than a fortnight since joining the team. Lindley was the Cardinals’ sixth-round pick in 2012 and is vying to be third-string quarterback, if the Cardinals even opt to keep a third quarterback. OK, so it’s not likely to happen. But it’s not like it couldn’t happen. The season hasn’t even started and the Buffalo Bills are already on their third quarterback. Undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel isn’t going to be handed the responsibility of leading the Bills to the playoffs, but he is going to be asked to buy the franchise some time until EJ Manuel returns from knee surgery.So, there it is. That’s the role my security blanket plays. Get me through a game. Perhaps just a quarter. A drive. Five out of eight divisions were decided by a game or less in 2012. In 2011, seven teams missed the playoffs by a single game. One game!Do you really want to miss the playoffs because your backup quarterback went down and Jay Feely had to run the offense for a half against the Niners?Quarterback is the most complicated position to play in the NFL. Running back is arguably the simplest. In case of emergency, would you rather plug and play a new quarterback or a new running back?The record for most yards rushing in a Super Bowl is held by Tim Smith of the Washington Redskins. He rushed for 204 yards against the Broncos in 1987. He had 126 career rushing yards prior to the playoffs that year. You think a waiver wire quarterback is heading to Disney World? Look, I’m not saying cut Ryan Williams, but I’d do that before I cut my third quarterback.And oh by the way, that one team that required their third-string quarterback to play last season?The Arizona Cardinals.Someone hand me a blanket. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   And there lies the question: Would the Cardinals rather keep five running backs or three quarterbacks?The NFL trend seems to be moving away from three quarterbacks on the roster. After all, only one team in the NFL last season was forced into using its third-string quarterback. Plus, an additional running back can play on kick coverage and returns, and could be used as a receiver in a pinch.However, I still prefer having the insurance of a third quarterback. It’s kinda like having an extra blanket on hand. As an Arizonan, there probably aren’t going to be many nights that I’ll require additional warmth. But in case I get chilled, I like knowing I can grab an extra blanket rather than trying cover myself with a couch cushion — for example. After all, a third blanket doesn’t take up that much space, does it?The argument could be made that once you’ve gone to a third quarterback, your season is likely lost anyway. But I feel that argument only takes into consideration the season-ending injuries players suffer. What happens if your starting quarterback is out with a concussion? Suddenly, you’re scouring the waiver wire for a backup to bring to practice that has to learn your offense in a week and be ready in case the second-stringer goes down in the game.center_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more

    first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. — A couple of players whom the Arizona Cardinals figure to rely on in 2015 will be making their debuts Thursday, as the team wraps up its preseason slate in Denver.After practicing in full Tuesday, both linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and running back Chris Johnson have been declared fit and ready to play by head coach Bruce Arians.When it comes to Weatherspoon, who hurt his hamstring on day one of training camp and hasn’t done much since, it will be a chance to see what he can do. Comments   Share   Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “It’s good to get to see what he is as a football player, where he’s at,” Arians said. “Get a chance to measure him against the other guys. That’s always the evaluation process.”The 27-year-old inside linebacker has been effective when on the field, but various injuries over the last few seasons have severely limited his playing time. Signed to a one-year deal in the offseason, the last thing he was hoping for was to miss as much time as he has.“It stinks, man, because a new free agent signing, you want to show people what you can do,” he said Monday of having to sit out. “When you’re banged up you don’t get a chance to do that.”Thursday, however, the former Atlanta Falcon with career marks of 336 tackles, eight sacks and two interceptions, will get his shot. The same can be said of Johnson, a running back signed on Aug. 18, who has been dealing with his own hamstring injury.“Just go out there and try to get in the groove, get some carries in,” Johnson said of what he’s hoping to accomplish Thursday. “I haven’t been tackled since last year. I haven’t played a full-speed game or anything.center_img Arians also said another player who has yet to debut for the team, tight end Jermaine Gresham, will not be traveling to Denver as he works to get through his own hamstring injury. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “So just go out there and get used to, back to playing football again, getting tackled and stuff like that.”Johnson, 29, has rushed for 8,628 yards and 51 touchdowns in his career, though is coming off a season in which he ran for a career-low 663 yards and one score for the New York Jets.So, he will be taking the field with something to prove.“I always have something, have a chip on my shoulder,” he said. “I’m just happy to be playing football right now. Just going to go out there and make the most of my opportunity.”Arians said the goal is to get but with both players enough work to feel comfortable while not pushing them too hard in their first game back. And with this being the fourth preseason game, one where the team’s starters are not expected to take the field, the key is getting the pair of veterans enough work to feel comfortable, but not too much to where they end up back on the sideline hurt.“You have to really watch how many reps and watch them at the game and see how fatigued they’re getting,” he said. “Because if it’s a 10-play drive they could possibly pull it again from fatigue.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

  • Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

    first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There were few bright spots on the Cardinals defense Sunday against the New England Patriots. Strong safety Tony Jefferson was one of them.Jefferson played all 71 snaps, and led the Cardinals in solo (9) and combined tackles. He had two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit that blew up a passing play because he got to Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo so quickly. None of that mattered to Jefferson after the game. He was more concerned with the Cards’ inability to put the Patriots in long down situations, and their inability to get off the field on third down where New England was 10 of 16.“We’ve just got to win on first down,” he said. “Once a team gets to second and short they can do anything in the playbook — it opens up the playbook and they can pass, run or do whatever … and obviously, third down we didn’t do as good.”The Cardinals tendered Jefferson, a restricted free agent, at the lowest amount possible ($1.67 million) this spring, giving them the right to match any offer for Jefferson. Jefferson, an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma, tested the free-agency waters but received no offers. He has not missed a game since signing as a rookie free agent in 2013. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “Yesterday, when you plant it would just kind of give,” he said. “You couldn’t really get into it, into the plant foot and out. But the pain, next week, should be fine. We should be good to go.”Butler’s optimism for Week 2 stems from feeling better Monday than he did Sunday night, and he added there was some luck involved because assistant athletic trainer Michael Blankenship, who always helps Butler tape up his left ankle prior to games, put a little extra into Sunday’s job.“There’s no question if I didn’t have the tape on there, I don’t know if I could be playing this week,” he said. “But I am and I’m excited to get out there and get back to work.”Injury newsSunday night, the Cardinals saw as Butler, guard Evan Mathis and defensive lineman Frostee Rucker all seemed to come down with some sort of injury.Butler’s ailment has been discussed, and it appears as though he will be fine. Monday afternoon, Arians said there was no word on Mathis’ status and that Rucker has an MCL injury that will likely keep him out two to three weeks.Jefferson’s big day (as told by Arizona Sports’ Craig Morgan) Top Stories Looking for positive returnsTo say the Cardinals struggled in the kick return game would be putting it mildly, as Andre Ellington averaged just 15.3 yards on his four opportunities. He had a long of 21 yards, and took a return past the Arizona 20 just once.When you consider downing the ball for a touchback would have let the offense begin at the 25, the failure to generate much of anything in such situations was a rather unsightly blemish in a night with a few of them.Many would point to Ellington as part of the problem, but Arians looked to the blocking in front of him.“We did not block the right guys and obviously turned to many of them loose on Andre,” he said. “We’ve got a hell of a returner back there if we just block somebody.”It’s likely some of those issues can be attributed to young players who were either too amped up or are still learning their respective positions.Asked what needs to get better, Ellington said the return team needs to clean up its techniques.“As far as that, we pretty much understand what’s going on and I’ve got to do a better job of setting blocks and helping those guys up front get their blocks,” he said. TEMPE, Ariz. — Drew Butler was called on to punt five times in Arizona’s 23-21 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday night.Of his five kicks, just two landed inside the Patriots’ 20-yard line, and his boots had an average distance of 36 yards.In a game filled with spotty special teams play, Butler’s performance was if not the most detrimental, still very noticeable.Yet on Monday, when asked about Butler’s status on the roster, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians offered a healthy dose of praise. Arizona Cardinals punter Drew Butler (2) during an NFL divisional playoff football game against the Green Bay Packers, Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri)center_img Arians said there was just one return where Ellington probably should not have taken the ball out of the end zone, and it was clear the Patriots were doing what they could do put the ball in situations that would not lead to big returns.Ellington would not be surprised if other teams tried to emulate that plan, but even still understands there are things they could do better to still get significant yardage.He is looking forward to breaking one.“I feel like we are capable,” he said. “Just watching film, we’re real close. But we’ve just got to clean up a few things and we’ll be fine.”Other musings– Asked what he told the team after the loss, Arians said that it’s just one game.“Go back, watch yourself and your preparation. Was it good enough? Watch the film and see if your preparation got to the stadium.”– David Johnson appeared to have an excellent game, with 89 rushing yards, 43 receiving yards and one touchdown. However, Arians said he thought the second-year pro was impatient early and did not produce as much as they were hoping he would in the passing game. The coach said his running back was solid, though, and noted how his 45-yard run in the fourth quarter was reminiscent of Johnson’s impressive jaunt last year in Philadelphia. But if there is any thought to getting Johnson more involved in the offense — he had just 16 carries and four catches — it appears that if anything else, the plan is go use him less. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “He kicked his ass off on one leg. He had a severely sprained ankle,” Arians said. “Some guys would have not been able to go out there. He sucked it up for his team and went out there. He sprained his ankle severely on that first punt.”During the game it was apparent that Butler had suffered some kind of injury on his first kick — a 38-yarder that was caught at the New England 18 and returned to the 26. He received attention on the sideline after the play, but no official injury was announced and he continued with his normal role. Had Butler been unable to continue, kicker Chandler Catanzaro would have handled punts.Butler said the injury happened when teammate Troy Niklas got tripped up and rolled into his plant foot.“It hurt pretty bad; I thought it was bad initially, but just gutted it out and was able to finish up the game,” Butler said. “Wish I could have put a better product out there.”While there was no indication Butler was blaming the injury for his performance, he noted the importance of his plant foot and the impact a badly sprained ankle could have.Whereas some injuries are more about pain tolerance, what Butler was — and still is — dealing with has more to it. Comments   Share   “No, he probably played too much,” Arians said. “I’d like to have Chris (Johnson) in there more, but we only had 59, 60 snaps.”– Arians is known for his “no risk-it, no biscuit” mentality, but on the team’s first drive, when facing a fourth down and inches to go on the Arizona 49, he elected to punt. Butler’s boot did not pin the Patriots deep, and New England proceeded to mount its first touchdown drive of the night.“It was really a decision by me to not go for 4th-and-6 inches, to punt it to their offense. I was thinking we could get good field position back. I think that third down call. In the past, I’ve gone for that a few times. In this game, had it been a different scenario, I probably would have. But, that was probably the most conservative call I made all night.” – / 55last_img read more

    first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >Australia’s Nature Coast has won the Queensland Tourism Award for Best Destination Marketing, reflecting the success of the innovative marketing project in attracting European and other international visitors to the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast.The ‘Richard Power Award for Destination Marketing’ was announced at the Queensland Tourism Awards in Brisbane last night.The power of the Australia’s Nature Coast (ANC) marketing strategy has seen record growth in European visitation to both the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast, with the Great Beach Drive – launched earlier this year – attracting significant international and domestic interest as well.In the most recent International Visitor Survey (IVS), the Sunshine Coast recorded 10.6% increase in overseas arrivals to June 2015, fuelled largely by growth in the UK (up 23.7%) and Germany (30.6%) – the two markets where ANC is most heavily promoted.Similarly, the Fraser Coast enjoyed strong international growth in the 2014-15 year, with the IVS figures showing a 14.1% increase in overseas arrivals, including 13.8% growth in the UK market and an impressive 30.5% rise in German visitors.The launch of Australia’s Nature Coast in 2013 was aimed to broaden international market appeal and attract new investment by leveraging the unique natural assets of the adjoining Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast tourism regions.The decision to launch the joint initiative recognised the need for diverse, product-rich natural attractions to compete collaboratively in key international markets“Consumers don’t recognise regional barriers, and given our proximity and our joint commitment to nature based tourism, the partnership was an ‘obvious’ one,” said Sunshine Coast Destination CEO, Simon Ambrose.“Our strategy targeted the European market in particular because of their specific travel patterns and interests, but the success of marketing initiatives like the ‘Great Beach Drive’ has resonated far wider and we have seen major growth in the Australian, New Zealand and American markets. Very few regions can offer such easy access – both Fraser Coast and Sunshine Coast have their own airports – and such remarkable diversity of attractions.“Australia’s Nature Coast has appealed to the discerning travel market who want something extraordinary and that offers more than just beaches, and that’s exactly what the two destinations have been able to present through ANC.”Fraser Coast Opportunity’s Interim General Manager, Leigh Burnett, said: “The collaboration, professionalism and commitment between Fraser Coast Opportunities and Sunshine Coast Destination and our other partners has underpinned the project’s success.“While Fraser Island was already well known in the international market, by combining with the Sunshine Coast we added a new level of international-ready product that provided a rich, nature-based experience that has proven attractive not just to Europeans, but to markets like America, which has grown 25.2% over the past year.“Australia’s Nature Coast has been principally an international marketing program, but the launch of the Great Beach Drive has sparked excellent domestic interest as well. The prospect of driving 4WDs on such a spectacular and easily accessible coastline has proven a major attraction for Australians who love the great outdoors.”Australia’s Nature Coast has been marketed in major campaigns in partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ), including participation at international trade shows and in dedicated marketing programs in Germany and the UK.With the two regions’ significant diversity in nature, the overall ANC campaign objective was to develop international awareness and appeal by positioning the area as a unified world-class ecotourism destination named Australia’s Nature Coast.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more

Architects will enjoy a veritable busman’s holiday straight from touchdown in the Basque Country, starting with Bilbao’s airport, designed by Santiago Calatrava. Art lovers in the house shouldn’t miss the Museo de Bellas Artes, but if you’re more bar fly than culture vulture, you’ll fit right in, as the pub crawl – the ‘poteo’ – is an art form itself in Bilbao. Make mine a cerveza. 3. Porto, Portugal from £40As November’s north wind blows, dream of warmer winter days in Portugal’s most pleasant second city, Porto. Temperatures are mild enough throughout the season for strolling around the UNESCO- listed centre, an elegant jumble which dates back to the 12th century. Be sure to sample (indulge) in the local wine from the Douro Valley, which should pick you up after an exhausting exploration of the Museu de Arte Contemporânea and fortify you for feasting on seafood and listening to fado long into the night.4. Geneva,Switzerland from £47Geneva has the reputation as one of Europe’s more expensive cities, but take the budget airline option and save your cash for a perfect coffee and extravagant cake, ideally enjoyed in the morning sunshine with a jumper round your shoulders while browsing the papers (just pretend you can understand). But if you’re a boarder not a city breaker, use Geneva as jumping-off point for winter sports resorts like Verbier, Zermatt and Saas Fee.5. Naples, Italy from £52In high summer, Italy’s Amalfi coast swarms with tourists licking melting gelati and navigating death-defying cliff-hugging roads and choked towns with one hand permanently on the horn. But in the off-season you’ll have proper charming seaside resorts like Sorrento to yourself. Be sure to stop in for lunch at least, or even a week, in postcard-pretty Positano, which clings to the hillside as if teetering on the brink of a crashing fall into the Tyrrenian Sea.

Scientists have revealed that cucumbers are the best thing for regulating body temperature whilst cold foods and drinks will only send parts of your body into shock (well, any fruit and vegetable with high water content does the same).

It was like magnets were pulling him towards his mattress against his will, he said.“It’s this weird middle ground where you want to move but you can’t,” the Thunder Bay, Ont., performer said of the experience, which he was in the throes of about a year ago.“It’s something I’ve felt so many times: lying in my bed and feeling so low I can’t get up. I want to, but I can’t muster the strength.”He describes his innermost experience on “Manic,” a new track he wrote in hopes of laying bare the ugliness of his bipolar disorder.The song is both a confessional and a reconciliation with himself, in which he ultimately faces his imperfections. The 28-year-old musician was diagnosed many years ago, but had neglected coming to terms with its realities, he said.“Manic” isn’t part of a new album launch — or even a song Hell planned to release — but he said the longer it sat with him, the more he felt there could be value in revealing his struggles.“I hadn’t come across a lot of songs that described the experience in any visceral sort of way,” he said.“I thought that might be something of use to someone. I know there’s a lot of songs that are maybe more hopeful, but this is a real depiction of how it feels.”“Manic” arrives as more artists pour their darkest struggles with mental illness into their work.Logic earned heaps of acclaim last year with “1-800-273-8255,” a suicide prevention track that included Grammy-winner Alessia Cara of Brampton, Ont., on vocals. The song was written after the rapper was diagnosed with derealization, a type of anxiety that makes the external world feel unreal.Florida rapper Xxxtantacion’s entire 2017 album, called “17,” leans heavily on the details of his depression, with one song dedicated to the suicide of his friend Jocelyn Flores.Rap and hip hop are among Hell’s favourite genres, he said, and might have subconsciously motivated his latest song. He points to Lil Uzi Vert’s hit “XO Tour Llif3,” which dives into weighty feelings of sadness and isolation while touring, as one source of inspiration.Facing his own realities wasn’t so easy, but at one point last year Hell decided enough was enough. He chose to seek professional help and changed his daily regimen to include more exercise and a better diet.He’s lost about 50 pounds over the past year, he said, which helped lift his spirits.“I started going to therapy and taking procedures towards making (life) more manageable,” Hell said.“I’m working on it, I think I’ve made a lot of progress and I feel a lot better “In preparation for the release of “Manic,” Hell climbed back into his bed for an intimate music video shot on his iPhone.The grainy, single-take clip centres on the singer’s face as he sings about the experience that crippled him for so long. As the song played, Hell said the emotional intensity of the moment pushed him to tears.The song “was transporting me back to … when things weren’t nearly so clear for me,” he said.“It’s definitely an intense thing to watch, but I think it adds to the song and maybe adds to breaking down some sort of stigma as well.”—Follow @dfriend on Twitter.last_img read more

They include B.C.-shot “The Crossing” and the Toronto-shot “Taken,” “Designated Survivor” and “The Expanse.”The Toronto labour union IATSE Local 873, which represents technicians, artisans and craftspersons in the industry, says “it’s not a concern.”“The lion’s share of our work right now is television production and it’s inevitable that series get cancelled. It’s the way the industry runs,” Monty Montgomerie, business agent with the IATSE Local 873, said in an interview.“It’s unfortunate, we never like to see a show get cancelled, we wish they’d stay here forever. But on the positive side it does present an opportunity for another project to come to town and hopefully spend a few years here and fill the void.”TV production in Ontario has “been very good” and “seen a steady incline of volume” for the past seven or eight years, he added, noting they’re expecting the same strength for the year to come.“There’s still a lot of interest in coming to Toronto,” Montgomerie said.“When these shows (remove) their sets and free up space, we’re fairly confident that those shows that are looking to come to Toronto will move into those voids.”The Ontario Media Development Corporation says its Film Commission “saw a surge of scouting activity throughout the latter half” of the fourth quarter.“Ontario is bustling with 25 film and television projects currently underway throughout province, including a number of incredible new projects filming their first seasons in the province of Ontario,” Justin Cutler, Ontario Film Commissioner at OMDC, said in a statement.Those new projects include “Wayne” (YouTube Red), “Umbrella Academy” (Universal/Netflix), “The Boys” (Amazon), and “Jett” (HBO), Cutler said. He also pointed to the recent success of the Ontario-shot, Oscar-nominated films “The Shape of Water” and “The Breadwinner.”Jim Mirkopoulos, vice-president of Toronto’s Cinespace Film Studios where many productions are shot, says “there’s very little concern.”“Obviously it’s not optimal for people in the industry that are hoping that on such a specific date, they can count on five or six months of employment. However, the turnover in the industry more than makes up for that uncertainty,” he said in an interview.“New shows are coming in as old shows are leaving, and Toronto continues to be very busy. Between Ontario’s competitive tax credit on top of the still-lucrative exchange rate, we are a top jurisdictional choice for the Hollywood majors.”While the heavy competition for eyeballs means the turnover of series might be quicker, overall the level of business will be the same if not more because of the rise of content on other platforms, added Mirkopoulos.“I would also highlight that the last year has probably been the most winning-est year in the history of Toronto film crews, with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ having won several awards, including Golden Globes and Emmys, and ‘The Shape of Water’ having won four Academy Awards, all heavily local Toronto crews having produced both of those projects,” Mirkopoulos said.The Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists is now calling on Canadian broadcasters to step up to the plate.“We regret the cancellation of the Canadian-produced series, particularly the jobs of the Canadian performers, other creators and crew on these shows,” Stephen Waddell, ACTRA National Executive Director, said in a statement.“We look to Canadian broadcasters to replace these cancelled series with distinctive, high-quality Canadian drama programming that attract Canadian and international audiences.”last_img read more

Phelps is picking up more hardware _ this time for what he’s been doing outside the pool. The Boston-based Ruderman Family Foundation, a leading voice in calling for more opportunities for the disabled, says the Olympic champion is the recipient of its fifth annual Morton E. Ruderman Award in Inclusion. The foundation tells The Associated Press it picked the world’s most-decorated swimmer of all time to recognize his advocacy for people with disabilities and “his own journey with mental health.” (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, File) BOSTON — Michael Phelps is picking up more hardware — this time for what he’s been doing outside the pool.The Boston-based Ruderman Family Foundation, a leading voice in calling for more opportunities for the disabled, said Tuesday the Olympic champion is the recipient of its fifth annual Morton E. Ruderman Award in Inclusion.The foundation told The Associated Press it picked the world’s most decorated swimmer of all time to recognize his advocacy for people with disabilities and “his own journey with mental health.”Phelps has gone public about his struggles with depression and thoughts of suicide.Last year, the 23-time Olympic gold medallist announced a partnership with Talkspace , which provides online therapy for those who are going through tough times. Phelps said helping people overcome the dark chapters in their lives is “way bigger than ever winning gold medals.”In a statement, the 33-year-old Olympian thanked the Ruderman Family Foundation for “their continued efforts to help eliminate the shame and stigma that surrounds mental illness.”“Together, we can normalize the mental health conversation and recognize the potential in every person — with or without mental illness — to contribute to our world in their own unique way,” Phelps said.The foundation works for more inclusion and opportunities for the disabled. Previous recipients of its award include Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin and former Democratic U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, of Iowa, a driving force behind the Americans with Disabilities Act.Jay Ruderman, the foundation’s president, called Phelps an example of the importance of self-care and of reaching out for help when it’s needed. That helps take the stigma and shame away from mental health struggles, he said.Phelps “has changed the landscape of mental health awareness,” Ruderman said.Since retiring from competition after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the swimmer has been promoting the importance of not just physical fitness but mental health. In 2017, he was honorary chairman of the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Mental Health Awareness Day.He’s also served as an ambassador for the Child Mind Institute, a non-profit group working to help children who struggle with mental health and learning disorders.___Follow Bill Kole on Twitter at https://twitter.com/billkole .William J.

  • NEW YORK — So whats all that Greenprint stuff on

    first_img NEW YORK — So, what’s all that Greenprint stuff on Beyonce’s Instagram feed?Bey stirred up the beehive Thursday when she advocated plant-based living in a rare social media endorsement. It helped that she also announced to her 123 million followers a sweepstakes for lifetime concert tickets to her shows or those of hubby Jay-Z after she asked the question: “What is your Greenprint?”Well, “The Greenprint” is the title of a new book by the superstar couple’s personal trainer, Marco Borges, a plant-based guru who has also worked with Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Pharrell, Diddy and Ryan Seacrest. The title refers to the impact on the planet that one can make by going plant-based.Borges, a Miami-based exercise physiologist and father of four, first got Bey going with “The 22-Day Revolution” on the same subject. She wrote the foreword for that book in 2015. She and Jay-Z penned the introduction for the new book, out in time for the New Year’s resolution season from the imprint Harmony Books.We went to Borges himself to explain his approach to health, life and saving the planet after 25 years in the business:AP: That’s some pretty good buzz Beyonce just gave you for your book.Borges: Yeah, it’s really an amazing time right now. I have to pinch myself, honestly. I’m living a dream. It’s absolutely magical. She’s only done a link-in-bio once before. The first time was when she told people she was going to go vegan 44 days for Coachella. People there are going insane there. We’re getting emails, DMs, text messages saying, ‘Oh my god, I never thought I could do this. I need some help.’AdChoices广告AP: What got you started on plant-based life?Borges: I wasn’t born and raised on a plant-based diet. Growing up I wanted to be a doctor but I found myself in pre-med realizing that medicine was far too reactive, that we needed a more proactive approach to wellness. I decided to practice wellness through exercise and nutrition. As I immersed myself in all the science, the data and the clinical trials, I realized that if you were looking for optimum wellness, improved performance and your best chance of survival, you had to move toward a plant-based diet. I’ve been living plant-based ever since and it’s been 14, 15 years now.AP: How does your approach stand out in the cacophony over veganism and plant-based nutrition?Borges: We have to meet people where they are. You can’t expect for every single person to want to adopt a plant-based lifestyle day one. The truth is it doesn’t have to be all in from the start. The Greenprint is plant-based living defined by you, whether it’s one plant-based meal a day, two or three. Or just simply meatless Mondays.AP: How do you help people ensure that they won’t fail?Borges. We’ve designed a step-by-step approach. It’s not a one size fits all. It’s customizable. We have three tiers. We guide you, provide you recipes, give you tips. We’re trying to help people rewire their behaviour a step at a time.What’s happening is that Joe Meat Eater is coming through the door of this part and vegans are saying, ‘You can’t come in because you’re not 100 per cent vegan.’ For me it’s about getting people to start looking at it from whatever angle interests them, whether it’s the environment or better health. We can’t have a conversation if I turn you away at the door because you’re not vegan.AP: You write about kaizen, or the Japanese approach to small, incremental improvements. Can you explain that?Borges: I’ve been obsessed with it ever since I was a kid. It’s continuous self-improvement. We can all be better versions of ourselves every single day. Whatever it is, you’ve got to work toward it. That includes me.AP: Some perceive the costs of a truly plant-based diet as restrictive. Do you agree?Borges: I’d love to meet the person who made that up. It doesn’t make any sense. When we go to the supermarket, we know that the foods that cost most are typically the steaks, the fish, the animal protein. That’s 10 times more expensive than avocados and broccoli. That’s preposterous. We live in a society where people love to hear good things about their bad habits.The reality is it’s less expensive to live a plant-based lifestyle.AP: To what do you attribute the popularity of the Keto approach to eating?Borges: Phenomenal marketing and the fact that we live in a world where people want to hear great things about their bad habits. I mean, don’t eat carbs! Carbs are bad for you! I mean brown rice, broccoli, carrots, all fruits. Don’t eat that. Well guess what? We’re eating twice as much protein as we should be eating and we’re taking in half the amount of fiber we should be taking in on a daily basis. And what about leaving the planet a better place? It’s why I wrote the book.Leanne Italie, The Associated Press by Leanne Italie, The Associated Press Posted Feb 1, 2019 11:05 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img What’s the Greenprint?
