first_imgRelated posts:Search continues in Costa Rica’s Corcovado National Park for missing US hiker Red Cross officials suspect missing hiker may be inside gold mining tunnels Final search underway for US hiker missing in Corcovado National Park Father continues search for Alaska hiker, believed missing in Costa Rica’s Corcovado National Park The Red Cross, Public Security Ministry and Environment Ministry pulled back volunteers and personnel on Tuesday from efforts to find missing U.S. hiker Cody Roman Dial in Corcovado National Park, on the Osa Peninsula. The Red Cross and the Costa Rican government have beensearching for the 27-year-old Alaska native since July 23. Dial has been out of contact with his family since July 10, the day of his planned entry into the park.Representatives from the U.S. Embassy are now in Puerto Jiménez, near the park’s eastern entrance, to take over the search, accompanied by Dial’s father, Roman Dial, a National Geographic explorer and well-known adventure sportsman. Based on Dial’s emails with his father and sightings by local residents, officials suspect that Dial was hiking alone in the park in areas off-limits to tourists. In order to search these areas, the new search-and-rescue team will need to negotiate for permits with the Environment Ministry.That team will revisit areas mentioned in Dial’s emails and already searched by Red Cross crews, but conflicting information from local residents who claim to have seen Dial have complicated efforts.“It has gotten really confusing because we have reports from people who believe they’ve seen him on the same day in areas that are kilometers and kilometers apart,” Gilberth Doundi, one of the Red Cross search coordinators, told The Tico Times. “We believe he left and re-entered the park a number of times, but that is really the only thing we are confident about.”The Red Cross turned up no sign of Dial in their searches except for a possible campsite in Piedras Blancas National Park, northeast of Corcovado. The teams searched rivers, mining tunnels and waterfalls, but saw no other signs of the young hiker. According to Doundi, search-and-rescuers believe it is possible that Dial left the park and may be elsewhere in Costa Rica.“We are sending out alerts to beaches and other possible tourist areas, we are monitoring his credit cards in case he makes a purchase, and we have alerted immigration officials to watch for him at the borders,” Doundi said.When The Tico Times contacted Dial’s father for comment, he said he was preparing to enter the park, but he lost a phone signal before he was able to provide more information.

Palmer pointed out that in order for his air atta

first_imgPalmer pointed out that, in order for his air attack to deliver the ball to Larry Fitzgerald and the other Cardinals’ receivers, the running attack must balance things out.“There’s teams like New England who wing it around, throw it all the time, but they’re still effective running it, because they throw so well,” he explained. “I hope that’s where we’re headed.”Last season, the Cardinals rushed for a league-low 1,204 yards, suffering from injuries in the back field, along with a lack of consistency and talent.But offseason acquisition Rashard Mendenhall, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers, along with a slew of rookies highlighted by Stanford product Stepfan Taylor, should help with ground production, the 33-year-old quarterback believes. “Rashard Mendenhall has been very successful and there’s a couple of guys waiting right behind him who just want a chance,” said Palmer. “So it’s a good combination of the guys we have, the desire we’re going to have to run the ball.”In an effort to contextualize the importance of the Cardinals’ running game, Palmer went on to point out the strength of the division, the need to keep the game clock rolling while trying to hold a lead and the value of supporting a good defense, like the one at University of Phoenix Stadium, with a solid rushing offense. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact It’s no secret that Bruce Arians and the Arizona Cardinals’ offense will live and die with its passing game.But on Friday, as quarterback Carson Palmer addressed the media gathered at Cardinals’ camp, he emphasized the importance of the team’s running game in the 2013-14 season.“It’s hard to be successful if you don’t run the ball successfully,” said Palmer, who is in his fourth offense in as many years. Top Stories “Our guards are big and strong and physical and can move piles and move the line of scrimmage,” he said.“When you play in this division, when you play against good defenses, you’re not going to just wing it all over the field. if you get a lead, you’ve got to hold it and a good way to do it is to run the ball and keep the clock rolling.” – / 38center_img Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “When you have a good defensive team,” Palmer said, speaking of his own, which he praised intermittently throughout the press conference, “you’ve got to run the ball.“You got a game where you got to carry an eight-minute, eight-point lead, it’s hard to do it throwing the ball because the clock is going to stop. And there’s times where we’re going to be in games this year where we’ll want to run the ball and we’ll have to run the ball.”While Arians and offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin will likely often use their backs as passing targets out of the backfield, Palmer was quick to clarify that such an attack wasn’t the type of approach he was highlighting.“There’s some extended zone runs that are really passes, whether they’re quick screens or bubble screens or throw-back screens,” he said.“I’m speaking more to snap the ball from under center, turn around, hand it off and pushing the line of scrimmage and moving people. That’s what you have to do at the end of games.”Despite the unclear offensive line situation on the team, Palmer thinks such an up-the-gut attack is more than possible for his offense.last_img read more
