Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Offensive guard – In two weeks I will be releasing my Arizona Cardinals big board, a list of the top 50 players that FIT into what the Cardinals will do, but here is a little spoiler — Chance Warmack will be in the top five of my board.I am not getting my hopes up for the Cardinals breaking from tradition and passing on talent with more value for perhaps a higher rated, by me at least, prospect.That being said, the Cardinals have the opportunity to solidify the position within the first two rounds with names like Warmack at seven, Larry Warford and Justin Pugh in round two or Kyle Long and Travis Frederick in round three.If the Cardinals identify the guard position as a need, they’ll have ample opportunity to address the position.Offensive tackle – I have talked about the likelihood that when the Cardinals step up to the podium that tackles Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher would be gone. But that doesn’t mean the cupboard is bare at that point. Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson is an intriguing, albeit underdeveloped left tackle prospect.If for some reason Joeckel or Fisher fall to the Cardinals, I hope that they do the right thing. I wouldn’t be opposed to Warmack over either tackle prospect, but I am realistic in my belief that this is unlikely. Top Stories I initially identified the Cardinals main needs as (in order of largest needs): Quarterback – Drew Stanton signed to compete for the starting job with at least Brian Hoyer, who received a one-year tender offer at the second round level.Pass Rusher – Lorenzo Alexander was brought in from Washington as a special teams ace. The six-year veteran is looking to break out and get a shot playing outside linebacker.Guard – No one added.Offensive tackle – No one added.Inside linebacker – Jasper Brinkley, the run stopping dynamo from Minnesota, was added.Other additions included running back Rashard Mendenhall (Pittsburgh), cornerbacks Jerraud Powers (Indianapolis) and Antoine Cason (San Diego), and safety Yeremiah Bell (NY Jets).If you look at the signings, it is my opinion that the team’s needs haven’t changed at all. My thoughts on Stanton can be seen at tshq.co, and Alexander has never proven to be an effective every-down player.That moves the needs at guard and tackle up the list following a week of free agency.While Arians has talked about the offensive line not being as bad as everyone says, I think the combination of need and top talent available will lend to the Cardinals needs come draft day lining up like this: Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires As NFL teams address needs in the free agent market, it begins to clarify the draft and make needs more apparent for each franchise.In the beginning of February, I broke down the biggest needs for the Arizona Cardinals. Now that week one of free agency has basically come to an end, I wanted to go back to the beginning and see if the Cardinals have addressed any of their major needs and if their moves have freed up the team to truly attack the draft in a “best player available” way. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The other possibility — something that a lot of fans may not like — is the Cardinals moving down if Fisher or Joeckel fall to seven.Teams may feel the value there would be like stealing, and they might be willing to part with picks — something the Cardinals could use to their advantage to plug the multiple holes on the roster.If the Cardinals are unable to draft a left tackle at seven, there is a possibility that they could take Terron Armstead of Arkansas Pine-Bluff in round two. A player I identified early as a late-day two or early-day three guard prospect, Armstead has turned heads. I also was sent some film on him by a helpful agent, which has changed my mind.Armstead would be a reach at the top of round two, but the reality is he may not make it to round three. So if the Cardinals really want a left tackle, they may have to reach in this draft for Lane Johnson at seven or Terron Armstead in the second round.Safety – I want to again clarify that this is how I believe the Cardinals will list their needs. If it were up to me, I would still have quarterback and pass rusher ahead of safety, despite the fact I don’t see a starting free safety on the roster. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments Share There is an intriguing thought among the draft community that Texas’ Kenny Vaccaro could sneak into the top ten. I am curious to see as draft day comes closer if the Cardinals are one of the teams interested in his services.The Cardinals could also benefit from a player like LSU’s Eric Reid in round two, South Caroina’s D.J. Swearinger in round two or three, and maybe a guy like Arizona State’s Keelan Johnson on day three if they don’t make a move on the first day of the draft or in the later stages of free agency.While the needs may have changed, there is still a chance that the Cardinals could go with a pass rusher early, or maybe even a quarterback (blashphemy, I know). But I would think that the Cardinals would look at their current roster and identify these as the three biggest needs after week one of free agency.
The couple didn’t have children. Making money came first. Their lucky strike would be Flamboro Downs, the harness racing track they owned for almost 30 years and that Magna Entertainment purchased from them for $70 million in 2003.“When you get this pile of money dumped on you, it was a no-brainer for us — charity came into it immediately,” Charlie says. “Nobody communicated with Margaret and I asking for money – nobody.“We invited them to a party at Flamboro Downs and started handing out cheques, and that time we covered McMaster University, Hamilton Health Sciences, St. Joseph’s – the same organizations we are dealing with now.”Charlie has maintained his work ethic, and is a tireless investor/money manager, using a save-buy-and-hold strategy to build a portfolio heavy on bank stocks with the odd energy play mixed in.“I work my ass off on the market making more money so I can give it away,” he says, chuckling. “It’s like smoking to me.”Speaking of which: Charlie is toying with the idea of investing in marijuana, and touts Aurora Cannabis Inc., as a potentially good buy. As for the actual product, well, he has consumed weed in edible form once, but after doing so felt as though his brain had been transformed into a “block of butter.”“I said to Margaret, ‘Jesus, I don’t need this. I don’t want any part of it.’”He is more bullish on cannaboids or CBDs, however, which don’t have a psychoactive effect on the user. Charlie has been taking CBD capsules to help him deal with a nerve issue in his leg, a problem that was giving him cramps and playing havoc with his sleep.“I sleep now, and it’s beautiful,” he says.When you get this pile of money dumped on you, it was a no-brainer for us — charity came into it immediatelyCharlie Juravinski Email Featured Stories Joe O’Connor Comment Join the conversation → Twitter Reddit May 29, 20198:14 AM EDT Filed under News FP Street Charlie stretches out the syllables when he uses the word “philanthropist,” because, well, the word doesn’t fit the way he views himself, even if it is a match for his and Margaret’s actions. They are both Depression-era kids who grew up thousands of kilometres apart but knowing one thing in common: poverty. Charlie’s family was from Saskatchewan. His first pair of “skates” was two steel runners with a board on top. He shared a bed with his two brothers. He had one pair of shoes and one pair of britches and zero memory of his father ever actually having a job, since there were no jobs, really, for most folks in Prince Albert in the 1930s.Margaret lived a similar experience in East Hamilton.“I’ve been poor and I’ve been rich – and there is no comparison,” she says. “Poverty is terrible.”The couple met in Hamilton after the war. Margaret was a knockout working at the Woolworth’s counter making sandwiches. Charlie, in his own words, was a “dead-ender,” a dropout but a good dancer, with a car and a friend who introduced him to his future wife as “Charlie Jug-O-Liquour.”I’ve been poor and I’ve been rich – and there is no comparison. Poverty is terrible.Margaret Juravinski Share this story’Giving is like a drug’: Hamilton couple pledge bulk of their estate to create $100-million health research endowment Tumblr Pinterest Google+ LinkedIn Charlie and Margaret have weathered some storms over their six-plus decades together; both have had some health scares. Charlie suggests that the secret to their longevity as a couple is never going to bed angry. Margaret waves her hand dismissively upon hearing this particular wisdom, challenging its accuracy, before explaining how Charlie always goes to bed angry after they fight — and that her secret is to walk away from it, literally out of the bedroom and into another bedroom at the opposite end of their Texas ranch-style house.Come morning, though, they will be back together again at the kitchen table, with Charlie smoking, and with plans afoot to work on the things they do agree upon, like giving away a fortune to a community that has given them so much in return.“Every place we go now, and it doesn’t matter where we go – somebody will stick out their hand and say “thank you,” Charlie says. “How can you get a better feeling than that?”• Email: email@example.com | Twitter: ‘Giving is like a drug’: Hamilton couple pledge bulk of their estate to create $100-million health research endowment With Charles and Margaret Juravinski, ‘it has been a lifetime of generosity’ advertisement GREENSVILLE, Ont. — Charlie Juravinski is, in the words of his physician, an “enigma,” an outlier at 89 years of age, who has no business (statistically speaking) being alive, but is alive just the same, and so the best medical advice doctors can offer to him is to keep doing exactly as he has been doing.For Charlie, that means lighting a cigarette with his purple lighter, and another after that, while he and his wife of almost 63 years, Margaret, sit at their kitchen table on the outskirts of Hamilton discussing another of Charlie’s habits, one which Margaret, who doesn’t smoke, shares in enthusiastically — giving away piles of money.Sixteen million dollars here, another few million there, a run of philanthropy that has totalled about $50-million over the past 18 years, and is identifiable around Hamilton by the names attached to several buildings, including the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre at Hamilton Health Sciences, the Margaret & Charles Juravinski Education, Research and Development Centre at McMaster University.“Giving is like a drug,” Charlie says. “Nothing feels better than helping others.” MacKenzie Bezos takes Warren Buffett’s pledge to give away more than half of her $37 billion windfall from divorce Payback for paying it forward: For companies, it’s not charity anymore, it’s community giving Where AI meets humanity: Gerald Schwartz, Heather Reisman announce $100M donation toward U of T innovation centre So now Charlie and Margaret are giving again, earmarking the bulk of their estate to create a $100-million endowment to fund the Juravinski Research Centre, in partnership with Hamilton Health Sciences, McMaster University and St. Joseph’s Healthcare. By Charlie’s math, the endowment will pay out about $5 million a year to its partners, in a gift that will give in perpetuity.“With Charles and Margaret, it has been a lifetime of generosity,” says Rob MacIsaac, president and chief executive of Hamilton Health Sciences. “They have been very effective at making a difference in Hamilton.” Recommended For YouNikkei slips to 3-week low as trade worries haunt earningsBOJ’s next move to be more easing, say majority of economistsU.S. Senator Schumer asks FBI, FTC to probe Russia’s FaceApp over security concernsBank of Korea statement on policy decisionDeveloping Asia set to meet growth outlook despite trade war – ADB Facebook More What you need to know about passing the family cottage to the next generation Sponsored By: 7 Comments Charlie and Margaret Juravinski: “Giving is like a drug.
