Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The three combined sacks — two recorded by Chandler HS alum Cameron Jordan and the other by Junior Galette — were allowed by tackles Levi Brown and Eric Winston.Arizona has given up eight sacks in its first five halves this season. – / 30 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments Share The Arizona Cardinals’ offense started Sunday’s contest in New Orleans with a beautiful 11-play, 80-yard drive capped off by a three-yard touchdown run by Alfonso Smith.From there, things quickly went downhill.Arizona failed to get further than the New Orleans 41-yard line over its next six offensive possessions, in large part due to a lack of pass protection for quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer, who finished the half 12-of-24 for 114 yards, was sacked three times, hit five times and hurried 10 times during the first 30 minutes of play.
The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo – / 50 386-78Carolina out-produced Arizona by a whopping margin of 386 offensive yards to 78. Arizona’s yardage is an NFL-playoff record low. The previous low had been held by the 1958 Cleveland Browns (86). Newton was 18-of-32 for 198 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Running back Jonathan Stewart ran for 122 yards and a touchdown. 8The Cardinals managed a total of eight first downs throughout the entire game. They also only managed to convert on 3-of-12 third down attempts. 1.7Arizona’s average of 1.7 yards per play is a season low and also lower than all but one of the Carolina rushing corps’ average yardage per carry. 3Carolina’s two unanswered touchdowns came with some help from Arizona kick returner Ted Ginn Jr., who was stripped at the 3-yard-line by the Panthers’ Melvin White. Then, Arizona’s Tony Jefferson was called for pass interference on third down. Newton threw his second touchdown in under two minutes to Mike Tolbert on the ensuing set of downs. 12The Cardinals managed just 12 second-half yards.4-31Lindley was sacked four times for a loss of 31 yards. Newton was sacked just once. In Arizona’s last matchup against the Panthers on Oct. 6 last season, the Cardinals’ pass rush sacked Newton seven times, forcing the quarterback to complete just 10-of-20 passes with three interceptions. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Running backs Marion Grice, Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams combined for only 27 yards on the ground. Punter Drew Butler handed Carolina prime field position with an average of 34.8 yards per punt on nine attempts. The Cardinals had previously overcome a 10-point deficit early in the game thanks to Darren Fells, who grabbed a 1-yard touchdown pass, and Marion Grice’s 1-yard touchdown run. The touchdowns gave Arizona the lead at the half, 14-13. But Cam Newton and his offense scored two touchdowns in less than two minutes for 14 unanswered third-quarter points. The Cardinals then had one more shot at keeping their playoff hopes alive after Newton was hit from behind by Sam Acho and the ensuing fumble was recovered by Rashad Johnson. Yet Lindley threw a pick straight into the arms of Carolina’s Luke Kuechly at the 5-yard line to seal it early in the fourth quarter. He’d throw one more pick, this one deflected by Keuchly into the arms of Tre Boston to essentially end it. The “Next Man Up” mentality that carried the Cardinals to a 9-1 start has now become “Next Season Up.” What did Arizona’s season-ending loss look like, by the numbers? A season held together by snippets of athletic tape is over for the Arizona Cardinals. The Redbirds lost to the Carolina Panthers 27-16 at Bank of America Stadium in the NFC Wild Card playoff game Saturday. They did so while playing technically their fourth-string quarterback and numerous backups on both sides of the ball. Yet the loss can’t entirely be blamed on backup Ryan Lindley. Though he was 16-of-28 for only 82 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, the Cardinals’ run game and special teams were just as detrimental to Arizona’s success. 0 Comments Share 11-6Arizona ends its season at 11-6 after starting 9-1. Carolina began the season 3-8-1, and has now won five straight, including its first playoff win in nine years. They’ll head to No. 1 Seattle next week if Dallas beats Detroit Sun. If not, the Panthers will face Green Bay at Lambeau. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact

(Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP) NEW YORK — While Sunday’s Golden Globes were notable for their lack of political speeches, Donald Trump couldn’t be avoided at Tuesday night’s National Board of Review Awards which, it turned out, were scheduled concurrently with the president’s nationally televised address advocating for a border wall with Mexico.The awkward timing made for a ceremony that seldom strayed far from politics. Most of the previously announced winners at the star-studded, untelevised gala at Cipriani’s in Manhattan — including Lady Gaga of “A Star Is Born” and director Peter Farrelly of “Green Book” — made some mention or allusion to Trump and his policies.Barry Jenkins, accepting the award for best adapted screenplay for James Baldwin’s “If Beale Street Could Talk,” happened to take the stage as Trump was addressing the nation from the Oval Office.“Literally right now the president is talking about walls and borders. I don’t know how this happened. So I can’t help but talk about the president and borders and all these walls,” said the “Moonlight” director. “There’s a film being celebrated called ‘Minding the Gap,’ by Bing Liu. Bing Liu and his family emigrated here. The president does not want them here.”Jenkins also cited two of the year’s most acclaimed movies — Chloe Zhao’s “The Rider” and Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma” — as other brilliant films made by immigrant filmmakers that Trump would dismiss. He concluded by quoting Baldwin — “One can only face in others what one can face in oneself” — and declaring “No walls. No borders,” along with an expletive directed at Trump.The annual dinner was hosted by Willie Geist and put on by the National Board of Review, a 109-year-old organization of film enthusiasts, academics and professionals. It’s one of the many traditional stops in Hollywood’s awards season. While it has little bearing on the Oscars race, the NBRs can be a frothy pit-stop between other honours and a welcome chance to polish acceptance speeches that might have gone unused at the Globes.Both Lady Gaga (best actress) and Bradley Cooper (best director) were presented with awards two days after their film went home with a disappointing solitary Globe. Cooper was introduced by Steven Spielberg, who lauded Cooper’s directorial debut as a birth of a filmmaking talent. “Bradley’s a survivor and Bradley’s a sponge,” Spielberg said.Introducing Gaga was Stephen Colbert, who happily noted that “being here meant I had to miss the president’s stupid speech.” In lengthy and poised remarks that lasted 13 minutes, Gaga said she was very different from her character.“I knew that although she was a strong woman, she would feel the pressures to succumb to what other’s saw her future as, whereas in my career I have over and over tried to subvert the influence of powerful men in my life had on me and create something unexpected all on my own,” said Gaga. “If they told me to go left, I would take a sharp, sharp right.”Her co-star Sam Elliott was also celebrated Tuesday as best supporting actor. The 74-year-old actor’s speech, spoken in Elliott’s trademark, modest drawl, earned the night’s most raucous standing ovation.For Farrelly’s 1960s interracial road trip “Green Book,” which won best film (comedy or musical) at the Globes, it was another night of celebration. The NBRs bestowed best picture and best actor (Viggo Mortensen) on the divisive film despite complaints over its racial sensitivity and its authenticity. “Green Book” got another boost earlier Tuesday, too, when Farrelly was selected among the five directors nominated by the Director’s Guild for its annual — and often quite predictive — honours.Farrelly said he hoped his film, made as a feel-good throwback, could bring people together — as he hoped a future president could, too.“All it takes to find common ground is to talk and to listen and to learn,” said Farrelly. “You know I’m voting for next? The politician who represents all of us.”Some awards were handed out before Trump’s speech. Breakthrough performance honoree Thomasin McKenzie, the young New Zealand actress of “Leave No Trace,” said a better world can’t be made “if we build a wall to keep people out.” Geist called her comments a “pre-buttal.”Honoured as the best documentary of the year, the makers of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg portrait “RBG” — Betsy West and Julie Cohen — said that the justice’s family had told them that Ginsburg, who has lately missed oral arguments, is recovering well from surgery and plans to participate in upcoming decisions — an announcement that drew some of the loudest cheers of the evening. As tribute to Ginsburg’s exercise regimen, both West and Cohen ended their speech by planking on the stage.Another constant theme of the evening was the usual mystery of just who exactly the National Board of Review is. The Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski, whose “Cold War” was honoured as best foreign language film, chuckled at the confusion. “I like you whoever you are,” he said. “I hope I meet you one day.”___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPJake Coyle, The Associated Press

andmore relevantlywith the Indonesian armywhich has tentacles deep inside the national economy and a system of privileges The special relationship between the army and the United States is seen in light of the nature of the task the nation placed on the shoulders of its soldiers in 1947: that of defeating a many-times larger enemy in a just war and of keeping the state itself geared to this military undertaking Lack of realism in this subcontinental challenge was offset by the oceanic axis with the US during the Cold War From thereideology framed for the state by politicians facilitated its mutation into an Islamic army that sat back and let jihad undermine the state itself in the 1980s Is the Pakistani civilian mind militarised by the dominance of the army or by the history of the

am The more important concern is the difficulty faced by informal firms in accessing credit But this is more a matter of informality than access to credit Related News Theprime minister has declared his goal of “Make in India” with “zero defect” (quality) and “zero effect” (on the environment) As a vision statement there could not be anything more appropriate But walking the talk is arguably the challenge India’s manufacturing has been a puzzle Since the late 1970s even as its peers in East Asia have greatly diversified into manufacturing the sector’s share has stagnated at around 15 per cent of the GDP It is not that past governments have not tried to revive manufacturing For decades now not just the Centre the states too have had an industrial policy At some time or the other many states have even pursued it vigorously Some of these policies have also been well designed But the results have been universally disappointing This alone should be adequate to chasten us about the task at hand The revival of our stagnant manufacturing sector is arguably the biggest economic challenge India is facing Unfortunately the problem is complex and intractable demanding several often diffuse sets of solutions So what is holding back India’s manufacturing The potential candidates are obvious though their relative importance is contentious Sorely deficient infrastructure inhospitable business environment corruption poor quality of human resources problems with access to timely and adequate credit difficulty of getting land high burden of taxation and restrictive labour regulations would figure prominently on any list In an ideal world public policy would be tailored to address all these problems But in the real world governments have limited resources and face serious administrative and political limitations Further many of these are intimately linked to the country’s stage of development One way to prioritise among them is to do a differential diagnostic of the various constraints facing the sector to identify those primarily responsible for holding back manufacturing growth In other words such binding constraints are those factors whose relaxation generates the greatest bang for buck This approach was popularised by economists Dani Rodrik Andres Velasco and Ricardo Hausmann in the early 2000s and has since been embraced by many countries across the world in designing their industrial policies In their own words growth diagnostics is simply “a strategy for figuring out the policy priorities” Simple as it sounds in the context of India’s manufacturing sector it is a formidable exercise Here is a simplified diagnostic analysis of the sector Infrastructure tops the list of most surveys on doing business in India In particular chronic deficiencies in transportation and power impose prohibitive costs and lower business competitiveness Multiple enterprise surveys have identified electricity as the biggest constraint Further India lags behind on every measure of transport connectivity Though there have been considerable recent successes spurred by private participation much needs to be done Credit access for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is a concern even in developed economies Interestingly among the ten parameters in the World Bank’s Doing Business Survey (DBS) India scores best on access to credit better than its emerging market peers Other surveys also confirm this The more important concern would be the undoubted difficulties faced by informal firms in accessing credit But then this is more a matter of informality than access to credit Scarcity of land and skilled labour have already started troubling businesses though it is difficult to describe them as binding constraints Consider land: Over the last decade several states have generously allocated massive amounts of land virtually free of cost for the establishment of manufacturing facilities But pointing to constraints that go beyond land only a minuscule proportion of these investments have materialised Our poor human resource quality — 70 per cent of the workforce is educated up to the primary level or lower though only 10 per cent has received some skill training — is likely to emerge as a constraint in the days ahead However work of economists like Aashish Mehta and Rana Hasan finds little evidence that the skills gap is a binding constraint It is more likely that businesses are unable to hire skilled workers at affordable wages A more sustainable strategy to bridge the “employability deficit” is to fix the quality of school education The regulatory hurdles are equally onerous India has some of the most restrictive labour regulations But evidence on growth in the manufacturing sector from states that have eased hiring and firing regulations is at best mixed In any case a gradual reform process on this is afoot and given its politically contentious nature this could be the best strategy forward A bigger constraint may be labour-related taxes as pointed out by Manish Sabharwal in these pages (‘Pains of the pay cheque’ IE November 25) They not only impose prohibitive costs on employers but also an unbearable burden on employees thereby forcing both sides into informal contracting High taxes erode business competitiveness The 2015 DBS reveals that Indian firms’ total tax obligations are among the highest A multiplicity of indirect taxes raises both the tax burden as well as administration costs Fortunately the rationalisation of indirect taxes through the proposed goods and services tax should significantly address this In any case our less-than-encouraging experience with tax concessions the core of numerous Central and state industrial policies over the years does not lend credence to the view that taxation costs are a binding constraint Finally we have the business environment Here I am referring to the interface with various organs of the government in accessing transactional services — procuring land starting a business getting utility services enforcing contracts resolving insolvency and recurrent routine contact As numerous studies and surveys show corruption and harassment plague these transactions It has an even more pernicious effect on incentives Such hostility encourages businesses to start and remain informal thereby perpetuating India’s overwhelmingly dominant informal sector All the aforementioned constraints bind with much greater force on informal firms It also discourages expansion of small business a major source of job creation reflected in the “missing middle” of India’s firm-size distribution While many of these transactions can be eased by simplifying the regulations concerned their implementation would run into state capability and related governance problems Apart from all these sound macroeconomic policies are necessary to create a low-inflation low-interest rate and high-growth environment that is essential for the country’s global manufacturing competitiveness In conclusion labour taxes infrastructure and the business environment appear to be binding constraints on the revival of India’s manufacturing sector However given the huge size and vast diversity of the country a diagnostic for each state may be a more prudent strategy In any case instead of big-bang reforms sustained efforts in multiple directions which cumulatively generate large effects are required to relax these constraints so that we can realise the goal of making in India Natarajan is an IAS officer batch of 1999 Views are personal
