Cardinals rookie David Carter making an impression

Cardinals rookie David Carter making an impression

 

Being a sixth-round draft pick who did not earn a college starting spot until his senior season and tagged as a “project” did more than motivate David Carter.

It made him mad.

Carter says he joined the Cardinals with a chip on his shoulder, eager to prove himself, and the 6-foot-5, 300-pound nose tackle has been the surprise of the preseason.

Ten Years After 9/11

Ten Years After 9/11

Wilson recalls “quiet” at the complex the day the Towers fell

Cards safety Pat Tillman, at minicamp in May of 2001, enlisted in the Army a year later after the country suffered through the 9/11 attacks.

It was a Tuesday.

Tuesdays are off days for players, but many come in to the Cardinals’ complex to get in a lifting session or just to stop by, and it wasn’t any different back in 2001.

Peterson enters season as starter «

Arizona Cardinals rookie and top draft pick to start at conerback!

Posted by Darren Urban on September 6, 2011 – 10:37 am 

For most of training camp, a debate among the Cards’ depth chart was whether rookie and No. 1 pick Patrick Peterson would start the opening game. He was behind Greg Toler and A.J. Jefferson, and, all things staying the same, I think Peterson would have come off the bench in the beginning.

Magneter: Magnetic Highway Harvests Kinetic Energy From Cars To Generate Electricity | Inhabitat – Green Design Will Save the World

Magnetic Highway Harvests Kinetic Energy From Cars To Generate Electricity


Using highways to generate kinetic energy from cars is not a new idea, but designer Fang-Chun Tsai has put a twist on it. He proposes using the kinetic energy from speeding cars to change a magnetic field to generate electricity. The system could be easily installed in existing cars, and it could pave the way towards a self-sufficient energy grid.

Vycon Plans to Tap Speeding Subway Trains for Immense Amounts of Kinetic Energy | Inhabitat – Green Design Will Save the World

London, New York, Paris – what do they all have in common? Apart from being among the world’s most energy-hungry cities, they all have underground subway systems. These public transport systems help millions of people each day to get to and from work, but what if they could also be used to help power these metropolises? Vycon Energy, who makes industrial flywheels, believes that they can tap the immense amount of kinetic energy carried by moving subway trains to subsidize city power systems. Not only would this reduce emissions, but it would also help to avoid peak power emergencies

Daimler Smart Forvision: a solar-powered roof with plastic wheels never looked so good — Engadget

No, it’s not a Micro Machine — it’s the Daimler Smart Forvision. Daimler paired up with chemicals giantBASF to improve Smart’s flagship EV after being soundly trounced by the Nissan Leaf’s longer range. With an emphasis on efficiency, the Forvision goes up to 20 percent further than the standard Fortwo. It has a transparent solar-panel roof which generates power to keep the cooling fans running even when stationary, see-through dashboard and clear OLEDs for internal lighting at night. BASF’s wizardry helped in the development of all-plastic wheels, a super-thin heat shield and aluminum fiber paints that insulate the car but allow for GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth signals to pass through unimpeded. The concept will be unveiled properly at the Frankfurt Motor Show but check out the source to see the press release and learn more.
