Her most recent return home only lasted 16 days. But what might look like failure from the outside is actually a key step toward success and recovery from alcohol misuse.When Niksik was a kid in St. Michael, a village in Western Alaska, she learned some lessons pretty quickly.“With just violence being a part of growing up in my childhood, it was always my first instinct to react violently,” she said during an interview at Anvil Mountain Correctional Center in Nome in the late summer. “Because I never knew any other way to express my emotions properly.”Niksik saw some of the adults in her life using alcohol as a way to cope with their trauma from childhood, she said, so she started doing the same thing.“Either numbing or enhancing my emotions, whether they were negative or positive, I’d always turned to alcohol to express my emotions,” she explained.By 18, Niksik was involved with the criminal justice system. For a few years, she moved between Anvil Mountain Correctional Center and her village where she stayed with her family and her children. Eventually, she was sent to Hiland Mountain, the women’s prison in Eagle River – a huge change for her. There she received intensive outpatient treatment for alcohol misuse.“I learned things that my parents didn’t have a chance to learn, and it played a role with how I should be a better person,” Niksik reflected.She learned things like coping skills and ways to deal with her emotions. And then, she was released. Niksik went back to St. Michael, back to her old friends and her old life. She said she was okay when she was with her children because they motivated her to stay sober. But when they left to stay with other family members, “when they weren’t with me, I felt lost completely.”She paused, looking down.“Just lost. I didn’t know what to do with myself when I didn’t have my children around,” Niksik said.Niksik said she starting hanging out with the same people as before and she gave in to peer pressure to start drinking again.“It’s hard to change when you’re the only one who knows the steps to change and want to change,” she said. “Because those guys in St. Michael, they don’t have the opportunity that I did. And I was very overwhelmed with the step-up of showing them how to be there for them in the proper way that people were for me.”After 16 days, the State Troopers took her back to Anvil Mountain.David Patterson Silver Wolf, a professor of social work at Washington University in St. Louis, said Niksik’s situation is common. He has worked as a treatment provider and a researcher.“Behavior changes is hard, right?” Silver Wolf said. “And it’s really hard to do when you have people who are convincing you that you don’t need a change.”Patterson Silver Wolf is also a person in long-term recovery. He said having a support system of people who understand the changes you are trying to make is essential.“I had these routines of using alcohol and drugs and doing those things,” Silver Wolf said. “I had to reinvent my whole self, which required that I had to make new friends and go to another community and oftentimes avoid the community where I gave in where it was easy to give in.”He said he also needed hope and motivation for change, just as Niksik needed the motivation of supporting her children.Finding new people to hang out with is easier said than done in a village of 400, but Niksik said that her brief trip back to her village this summer actually gave her hope that she could do that.“With the time that I was home, I learned who to avoid and who I was most vulnerable against when it came to questioning on whether I wanted to party with them or not,” Niksik said.The experience was a reality check about what she needs to do in the future.“I not only hurt myself or my parents, but I hurt my son. That hurts me the most because the look in his eyes when the Troopers came to pick me up again. It’s still tearing at my heart,” Niksik said, her voice catching. “He still questions on why I had to come back to jail.”Now, Niksik is heading to a long-term residential treatment program where she can live with her son. She said she’s ready to focus on her sobriety and prepare herself to return home.She has plans for her future in St. Michael. She’s going to care for her parents and open a restaurant. And she’s going to be a supportive mother for her children.
Airplane manufacturer Boeing Wednesday announced it would cut about 4,500 jobs by mid-2016. The company reportedly plans to reduce its workforce in a bid to control costs.In the commercial airplanes division, the company will lay off about 4,000 people. It will also cut about 550 jobs in the flight and lab tests division, company spokespersons were quoted as saying by Reuters. Spokesperson Doug Alder said the job cuts, which would include managers and hundreds of executives, will be done through voluntary layoffs.”While there is no employment reduction target, the more we can control costs as a whole, the less impact there will be to employment,” Alder added. As of Dec. 31, 2015, the company had a total of 161,400 employees, Reuters added. The commercial and defence aircraft manufacturer also planned to cut 10 percent of its 5,700 test and evaluation staff, which conducts flights and lab tests, a spokesperson was quoted as saying by the news agency.According to reports last month, the company was reportedly considering offering voluntary layoffs to its professional engineers and technical workers. Ray Conner, the Chief Executive Officer of Boeing’s air plane business, last month said the job cuts were necessary to “win the market, fund its growth, and operate as a healthy business.”The Boeing stock closed at $130.86 Tuesday, down 0.33 percent from its previous close on the New York Stock Exchange.
Kolkata: A 41-year-old man committed suicide by hanging himself inside his house at Salt lake EE Block on Thursday morning. Police came to know that the victim Samanway Bhowmick was an LIC agent. The 41-year-old man used to stay alone in the house. Someone known to the victim went to the house and found the man hanging from the ceiling. He informed the matter to other neighbours in the area, who contacted the police. Police went and sent the body for an autopsy. They have initiated a probe in this connection and came to know that the victim had set the volume of his TV ti highest so that no one could hear even if he cries for help. Though police are yet to ascertain the exact reason, investigating officers suspect that financial trouble could be the reason for which he committed suicide.
Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus Hands-on: What’s New, What’s DifferentThe Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus offer sleeker designs, better cameras for video and new S Pen tricks. Here’s how they stack up.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpThe Google Pixel 4’s Secret Weapon Just Leaked01:15Live00:0005:2805:28 Tom’s Guide (Rating: 4/5)According to our own Mark Spoonauer, there’s plenty to like about the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. The screen is excellent, as is the performance and battery life, while the new video effects, “air gestures” performable with the stylus and the improvements to DeX Mode (Samsung’s pseudo-desktop for mobile devices) are interesting albeit gimmicky. However, he didn’t get on with the notoriously smudgy Aura Glow color scheme, the occasional difficulty of using air gestures or the camera, which he finds is inferior to its rivals.The Good“The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is an ultra-premium, big-screen phone that you’ll be psyched to use.”“You won’t find a larger screen on an Android phone than the 6.8-inch AMOLED panel on the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. And it is a sight to behold, with the same rich colors and wide viewing angles we’ve come to expect from Samsung.”“In everyday use, the Note 10 Plus is a swift performer. In fact, it loaded apps like Chrome, Twitter and Facebook slightly faster than the iPhone XS Max. This phablet also ably handled long play sessions in PUBG Mobile. It delivered console-like detail without any stuttering even at the highest setting, and the phone remained relatively cool.”The Bad“The S Pen has learned some new tricks with the Galaxy Note 10, but I’m not yet sold on how useful they are.”“The Aura Glow model picks up fingerprints quickly; I found myself wiping the back of the phone on my shirts and pants to keep the smudges at bay.”“While the Note 10 Plus’ cameras perform well in low light, the Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate P30 Pro are better camera phones overall.”The Verge (8.5/10)The Verge’s review, written by Dieter Bohn, is positive, but points out that the only unique feature that the Note 10 Plus has compared to other flagships is its S Pen stylus. That said, Bohn likes some of the new stylus-compatible features, like optical character recognition (or OCR, which turns your writing into text documents), AR doodling and video editing features. He characterizes the rest of the phone as “luxurious” and high-performing, making the phone’s asking price ($1,099/£999 for the basic model) somewhat palatable, although he doesn’t enjoy the user experience of Samsung’s version of Android 9.0 Pie, One UI.The Good“The Note 10 Plus does a million things, some of which manage to rise above the level of the typical Samsung gimmick. It is a big, beautiful, powerful, well-made phone. You can take all of that for granted, which is an achievement in and of itself.”“It probably seems weird to the uninitiated, but Note people know: using a stylus on your phone is great. You get a greater degree of precision with all sorts of tasks and a few extra features that aren’t possible without it. But it also just feels different — and often better — to jot on the screen rather than tap on it.”“There are other phones that come close [to being as nice as the Note 10 Plus] — some from Apple, some from Samsung — but the Note 10 Plus is just a little nicer in addition to being a little bigger.”The Bad“Recently, I praised Samsung for getting its act together and adding a little more elegance and clarity to its software, One UI. Unfortunately, with the Note 10 Plus, Samsung is reverting to the norm.”“The specs, massive screen, and design combine to make the Note 10 Plus a smartphone that goes to 11 for $1,100. But — again — there are Android phones and even Samsung phones that cost hundreds of dollars less and get you nearly there.”“I do think the stylus is the only important reason to pick the Note 10 Plus over the Galaxy S10 Plus or some other big Android phone. And how much you’re into it is an entirely personal decision.”(Image credit: Future)Engadget (Rating: 89/100)Chris Velazco of Engadget finds fault with the Note 10 Plus’ cameras’ low-light performance, the phone’s battery life and its cost. But he enjoys the cameras in general, the phone’s performance, its S-Pen features and its display. He doesn’t believe the Note 10 Plus will woo anybody toward the Note series who isn’t already a prior owner, but still calls it the “best big phone out there right now.”The Good“Instead of performing actions inside apps with the S Pen’s button, you can also invoke them with swishes and flicks in the air. If that sounds a little silly, well, you’re right, but they do work.”“This HDR10-certified display is excellent for curling up in bed and bingeing on movies, and it’s more than bright enough for reading and note-taking under harsh sunlight.”“If you just want a big phone, you can easily pick up a OnePlus 7 Pro or a Galaxy S10+ for much less money, and you’ll probably have a great time with them. But if you want a big phone that lets you do more than the smartphone basics and don’t mind dealing a few quirks, you won’t do better than the Galaxy Note 10+ right now.”The Bad“On heavier days with more prolonged use… I blew through the battery before bedtime. Realistically, you’re not going to have to worry about running out of power before you step out for a night on the town, but this isn’t a phone you can get away with charging every other day.”“Since they basically share the same cameras, the Note 10+ has the same low light limitations as the S10s… I hate to say it, but the included Night mode isn’t all that effective either.”MORE: New iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro: Release Date, Specs, Price and LeaksCNET (Rating: 9.2/10)In her Cnet review, Jessica Dolcourt is thoroughly impressed by the overall quality of the Note 10 Plus, saying that even the noticeable problems are not enough to put her off. The issues she highlights include the removal of the headphone jack, the position of the buttons (all aligned on the left side of the phone) and the necessity to use a case to protect the screen and the easily marked back. However, she is full of praise for the phone’s design and performance, and one of the few reviewers who has an overall positive impression of the cameras.The Good“Samsung makes excellent phones that check nearly every box of what you’d want in a device: a clear, brilliant screen. Great cameras. Strong battery life. But it’s been years since all the individual parts have come together in a way that makes me sit back and say, “Wow.” The Galaxy Note 10 Plus does that. ”“For the first time in a long time, I can say to power users: Why wait? The Note 10 Plus is outstanding, and worth buying.”“Daytime photography is excellent, but the dedicated night mode is where Samsung really steps it up.”The Bad“Another early headache is the button placement. Lefties will love that the power/lock button is now on the left under the volume rocker, but if you’re used to this button on the right, it’s going to change how you unlock and power off the phone. It’s also confusing at first to double-press it to quick-launch the camera app.”“[The Note 10 Plus is] overkill for people who want a smaller phone or are completely uninterested in the stylus.Android Central (Rating: 4/5)(Image credit: Future)The Note 10 Plus made a generally good impression on Andrew Martonik at Android Central. The stunning display, strong performance and reliable battery were particular highlights for him, while his complaints revolve around a lack of innovation in other areas, for example the cameras and the UI, which in turn result in a phone that doesn’t do enough to outclass the cheaper Galaxy S10 Plus.The Good“The fact that Samsung continues to lead in display technology should come as no surprise. The Dynamic AMOLED panel, in all its 6.8-inch glory, is once again setting the bar. It’s bright, clear, visible in direct sunlight, has great viewing angles and is just as colorful or neutral as you want depending on which display setting you choose.”“No matter what you do, you’re going to find amazing performance on the Note 10+. That shouldn’t come as any surprise with a Snapdragon 855 and staggering 12GB of RAM, but I couldn’t do a single thing that made the Note 10+ so much as hesitate — let alone stutter or actually have a problem.”“Samsung continues to have great battery life consistency, both throughout the day and from day to day. Nothing seems to dramatically drain the Note 10+’s battery, and I could always count on the same general percentage drop throughout each day no matter how I used it. Predictability in battery life is just as much of a feature as actual longevity in my book.”The Bad“It’s not that the S10’s cameras are bad — they’re actually very good — but that they’re already not the best in every respect today, and when there’s clear room for improvement Samsung didn’t make any.”“The Note 10+ may be running One UI 1.5, ostensibly an update from the S10’s software, but the changes come in the form of the handful of new Note features rather than any dramatic movements in the interface or user experience.”“With the removal of the headphone jack, generally iterative improvements or stagnant features, and the introduction of the smaller Note 10 that’s out-classed in some ways by the S10+, the Galaxy Note no longer represents the biggest and best Samsung can do. It’s simply a great phone — one that’s great in all of the same ways Samsung’s other phones are, but with an S Pen.”Digital Trends (Rating 4.5/5)Julian Chokkattu writes in his Digital Trends review that the Note 10 Plus pushes the bar just enough to justify its position at the top of Samsung’s list of flagship phones, and has excellent qualities inside and out. Where the phone falls down in his point of view is with its gimmicky features, Samsung’s decision to remove the headphone jack, and the battery performance. But he still gives the phone an overall glowing recommendation.The Good“This is the phone to buy and hold onto for more than two years; if you’re looking for the all-encompassing phone that can do it all — and do it all well — you can’t do better than the Note 10 Plus.”“You’ll have a hard time looking away from the stunning, futuristic 6.8-inch screen. Its massive surface is like staring into another reality, and it’s among the most immersive I’ve seen on a phone to date.”“Should you buy it? Yes. The Note 10 Plus is an excellent Android smartphone that justifies its high price.”The Bad“I like the versatility of the triple camera lenses, and the photos they product are strong. But I have minor quibbles. The telephoto lens oversharpens but also lacks detail sometimes; the wide-angle lens can’t handle close-ups like the wide-angle lens on Huawei’s P30 Pro; and Night Mode sometimes looks worse than using the standard camera.”“There’s a massive 4,300mAh battery in the Note 10 Plus. You’ll end a day of moderate use with around 30 percent remaining by 7 p.m. That’s good, but not necessarily great. Heavier use means the phone may struggle to stay alive until the end of the day.”Galaxy Note 10 Benchmarks: How It Stacks UpNote 10 Plus vs. Pixel 3 Camera Face-off: Not Even CloseBest Galaxy Note 10 Deals With both the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus now on sale, there’s plenty of opinions on whether it’s worth buying them.Our Galaxy Note 10 Plus review is live, and several other outlets have posted their reviews of this 6.8-inch beast as well. Highlights include a gorgeous design, brilliant display and four rear cameras with new video editing powers. The Note 10 Plus and Note 10 also offer new S Pen features and faster charging.However, the high price of the Note 10 Plus ($1,099, compared to a $999 debut price for last year’s Note 9) has increased scrutiny. The regular Note 10 starts at $949. Is the newer model worth the higher price, or is there not enough change between generations to warrant it?

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories 0 Comments Share Yep.Dec. 9, 2012: In a contest between teams heading in opposite directions, Seattle fell one point shy of the biggest regular-season shutout in NFL history. The Seahawks forced eight turnovers and scored 10 times — seven touchdowns and three field goals — as the Cardinals suffered their ninth straight loss after a 4-0 start. It was the second of five consecutive wins for playoff-bound Seattle in Russell Wilson’s rookie season.John Skelton, who quarterbacked the Cardinals that day, said after the game, “For them to come out and dominate the way they did in every phase of the game it’s embarrassing.” He wasn’t wrong.Skelton and Ryan Lindley combined to complete 19 of 39 passes for just 111 yards with four interceptions (all of which belonged to Skelton). The Cards added just 43 yards on the ground. The Seahawks, on the other hand, tallied 284 rushing yards — 128 on 11 Marshawn Lynch carries and 108 on 20 totes from Robert Turbin. Lynch also scored three times, while Leon Washington also added a TD on the ground.It was truly an afternoon to forget, though the Cardinals were able to exact some revenge the following season when they went into the very same stadium and knocked off the Seahawks 17-10, putting an end to their opponent’s 14-game home win streak. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (11) and wide receiver Michael Floyd (15) sit on the bench during the fourth quarter of an NFL football game against the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle, Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012. The Seahawks won 58-0. (AP Photo/Stephen Brashear) So there’s that. Cardinals fans, avert your eyes. In fact, feel free to stop reading. The rest of this article is going to be rather unpleasant.Remember the 2012 season, where the Cardinals started 4-0 but finished 5-11? It was the campaign that led to the team dismissing head coach Ken Whisenhunt and GM Rod Graves and it was, for lack of a better word, terrible.And no game was as bad as the team’s 58-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 9 of that year. That game was so bad, in fact, that the fine folks at ESPN.com ranked it as the 43rd worst blowout in sports history.
The final installment of the FootballScoop Status Report series hits the biggest conference in college football, both in terms of roster and stature: the SEC. What starts here has ripple effects across the rest of the sport, especially in years where there’s a lot of action. And this is going to be one of those years.Previous reports: American, ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Conference USA, MAC, Mountain West, Pac-12 and Sun BeltBefore we get going, remember that Florida and Ole Miss are already open. Movin’ On Up?Dan Mullen, Mississippi StateTenure: 67-44, 32-37 SECThis year: 6-2, 3-2 SECThis one isn’t complicated. Florida has an opening. Mullen previously coached at Florida. Florida’s AD was at Mississippi State until last year. Florida hasn’t had a decent offense since 2009; Mullen has made his career by developing guys like Alex Smith, Tim Tebow, Dak Prescott and Nick Fitzgerald. None of this guarantees Mullen will leave for Gainesville or any other opening, of course, but you can’t dismiss it out of hand.Movin’ On Out?Butch Jones, TennesseeTenure: 33-26, 14-23 SECThis year: 3-5, 0-5 SECFrankly, it’s surprising to most that Tennessee has not joined the Gators and the Rebels already. The relationship has devolved to the point where even if the Vols win out and finish 7-5 the relationship between Jones and the Tennessee fan base can not be salvaged. AD John Currie has remained consistent in his message thus far with Jones; but all bets are off once the season is over.Bret Bielema, ArkansasTenure: 28-31, 11-26 SECThis year: 3-5, 1-4 SECBielema inherited a mess, on and off the field. He’s done an admirable job of cleaning up the off-the-field part — and buying in whole hog (pun absolutely intended) to the Arkansas culture — but on the field? It’s hard to spin your way out of an 11-26 conference record.On WatchKevin Sumlin, Texas A&MTenure: 49-24, 24-21 SECThis year: 5-3, 3-2 SECI can’t think of a coach on a more public hot seat than Sumlin, dating back to before last Signing Day. It seemed like he was in line to out-smart the posse before last week’s no-show 35-14 loss to Mississippi State at Kyle Field. The Aggies close with Auburn at home on Saturday and a visit to LSU, whom Sumlin has yet to beat in five tries. Assuming wins over New Mexico and Ole Miss, winning both games against the Tigers would put him at 9-3 and quite potentially safe. Losing both would find him at 7-5 with the sharks closing in. But a split? That would get very interesting.Gus Malzahn, AuburnTenure: 41-20, 22-15 SECThis year: 6-2, 4-1 SECEvery Auburn coach is on the hot seat at pretty much all times, and Malzahn is an especially interesting spot. Auburn is 1-2 against equally talented teams thus far, losing a respectable 14-6 decision at Clemson, blowing out Mississippi State 49-10, then blowing a huge lead in a 27-23 loss at LSU. Now without No. 2 runner Kamryn Pettway, Auburn will visit Texas A&M on Saturday, then close with No. 2 Georgia and No. 1 Alabama (with a breather against Louisiana-Monroe in between) at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn could still win the SEC and elbow its way to the front of the College Football Playoff. Or it could be 7-5. Giddy up.Could Really Use a Strong FinishBarry Odom, MissouriTenure: 7-13, 2-10 SECThis year: 3-5, 0-4 SECWhat a season of dichotomies it’s been in Columbia. Mizzou’s three wins have come against Missouri State, Idaho and UConn; the Tigers scored an average of 64 points in those wins. In their five losses? 18.4 points a game. Missouri gets Florida and Tennessee at Faurot Field over the next two weeks, then closes at Vanderbilt and Arkansas. A 7-5 record is equally as plausible as a 3-9 mark. One should reserve judgment until then. Additionally, the University of Missouri is going through a tremendous upheaval at the moment. Having a head coach who for whom it means something to be the head coach at Mizzou — Odom has been a Tiger player, GA, support staffer, position coach and coordinator before landing the head job — should count for something in a time such as this.Derek Mason, VanderbiltTenure: 16-29, 5-24 SECThis year: 3-5, 0-5 SECMason took Vanderbilt to the Independence Bowl last year and started 3-0 this year — at one point cobbling together a 7-3 stretch that included wins over Georgia and Tennessee — but the ‘Dores have fallen off a cliff since then. Vanderbilt is 13th in the SEC in scoring during conference play and dead last in scoring defense, a gap that creates the average score of 47-20 in the wrong direction. Mason is a good coach who represents the university with class, but 5-24 is 5-24.And there you have it: Half the conference mentioned, and that’s with two jobs already open.Buckle up, everybody.
