Steve Bisciotti Says Ravens Considered Firing John Harbaugh After Season

Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said Friday that he considered firing head coach John Harbaugh at the conclusion of the season. 

According to ESPN.com’s Jamison Hensley, Bisciotti said, “It was certainly a consideration, but not one that I was inclined to make this year.”

Baltimore went 9-7 this season and missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker after losing to the Cincinnati Bengals on a late, fourth-down touchdown in Week 17.

Bisciotti mentioned the Ravens bouncing back late in the season as a reason behind his decision to keep Harbaugh in the fold:

“Certainly, it was a thought. I was very proud of the way John kept fighting, held the team together when we were losing in the middle of the year. [Quarterback] Joe [Flacco] was obviously producing at substandard with his back injury and after the first couple of weeks, obviously, we were very encouraged by our defense and thought that could hold us together. We didn’t perform very well in the middle of the year. I was proud of the way we fought back as a team.”

Baltimore won five of its final seven games of the season, however, it was unable to hang on to a late lead against Cincinnati in Week 17 to reach the playoffs.

The Ravens have now missed the postseason in three straight years after making it in six of the previous seven seasons.

Despite the Ravens’ recent struggles, Bisciotti said he isn’t making a playoff-related ultimatum to Harbaugh entering 2018:

“He’s under as much pressure than probably he’s ever been in his life, and I expect him to keep his chin up and take his positivity and his talents and make the most of the season. I may as well replace him now if I tell him to make the playoffs or you’re out of town next year. That’s not the way we run business here.”

In 10 seasons under Harbaugh, Baltimore is 94-66 during the regular season. It is also 10-5 across six playoff appearances, including a championship at the end of the 2012 season when it beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

Harbaugh is under contract through 2019.

Mendocino Cannabis Company In Showdown With Authorities

The post Mendocino Cannabis Company In Showdown With Authorities appeared first on High Times.

Barely a month after California implemented legal weed, a Mendocino cannabis company in showdown with authorities has caught our attention.

Just little over a week before legalization took effect in California on January 1, state police stopped a truck hauling 1,875 pounds of cannabis in Mendocino County, seizing the goods and slapping the two occupants with misdemeanor possession charges.

This despite the fact that they were hauling for their employer, Ukiah-based Old Kai Logistics, and had paperwork showing the firm is licensed by county authorities. Now that cannabis is recreationally legal, the Mendocino cannabis company in showdown with authorities is wondering where they stand.

It remains to be seen if prosecutors will pursue the case in light of legalization, and the affair has enflamed suspicions between growers and authorities at a critical moment.

Supply Chain Problems

Old Kai, the Mendocino cannabis company in showdown with authorities, is a cannabis industry logistic company that offers “supply-chain solutions” including testing, processing and distribution to area cultivators. The truck was hauling product for six growers in the Covelo/Round Valley area of the county.

During the December 22 traffic stop, the two employees presented law enforcement with documentation that the company was licensed as of December 19—to no avail.

Old Kai founder Lucas Seymour told the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat: “We’re a licensed entity. We have all the paperwork. All of our employees are aboveboard. We have payroll, pay stubs, workers’ comp. We’re not trying to scam anyone.”

Angry county residents packed a Jan 22 Board of Supervisors meeting to protest the bust in the public-comment period, local radio reports. Joe Rogoway, attorney for Old Kai, told the Supervisors he contacted both the California Highway Patrol and the sheriff’s office as soon as he knew the bust was underway and was “rebuffed” by both. He called the affair a “grave injustice.”

Authorities Claim Haul Was Still Illegal

Mendocino Cannabis Company In Showdown With Authorities

Officer Jake Slates, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol’s Ukiah office, told the Press-Democrat he couldn’t comment on the case. The reason being, the investigating officer was out of the office. But Slates did say, “Let’s say they went through and got all the documentation and it’s 100 percent legal — it’s still illegal because it’s before Jan. 1, 2018.”

The participation of the Mendocino Sheriff’s department in the bust is particularly disconcerting. It indicates that the county’s own law enforcement is at odds with the county’s regulatory bureaucracy. Mendo Supervisors passed an ordinance to license and regulate cannabis in the county in April 2017. But Sheriff Tom Allman is a leader of the right-wing “Constitutional Sheriffs” movement, as the Press-Democrat has reported.

Legalization has been law in California since New Year’s Day. But the charges against the two Old Kai employees haven’t been dropped. Worst of all, the cannabis is still being held as evidence. Or, perhaps it has been destroyed.

And just 17 days after the bust, local officers, acting on a “probation search” linked to a 2015 misdemeanor cannabis conviction for Old Kai co-owner Lucas Seymour, entered the firm’s place of business and removed boxloads of financial documents.

The case is being watched closely by those who fear that a continued heavy police hand will discourage growers from joining California’s newly established legal and regulated market.

As attorney Rogoway told the Supervisors: “What I hear from a lot of operators in Mendocino County is, ‘Why should I participate in the system, put myself at risk? Why bother? If this is what happens to Old Kai, what will happen to me?’”

Final Hit: Mendocino Cannabis Company In Showdown With Authorities

Mendocino has approved more than 400 cannabis permits. But even licensed growers are clearly worried. Joshua Artman, one of the cultivators whose product was seized in the bust, told the Press-Democrat: “If I lose my crop… what do I tell my wife and kids? It’s tough. Honestly, I’m not sure what to do. Hopefully some good will come out of this; we can set a precedent and it won’t happen again. But this has massive repercussions for the county of Mendocino.”

And for what the legal cannabis economy is going to look like in the state of California.

Apple Launches Official Repair Program for iPhone 7 Models Affected by ‘No Service’ Issue

Apple today launched a repair program for iPhone 7 devices that are impacted by an ongoing bug that causes them to have no available service even when cellular coverage is available. Apple says the problem is caused by a component that has failed on the main logic board.



The problem affects “a small percentage” of iPhone 7 devices, causing them to display a “No Service” message instead of properly connecting to an available cellular network.






Customers who are experiencing this issue will receive a free device repair from Apple, and those who have already paid for repairs are eligible for reimbursement. Apple will be emailing customers who may have previously paid for a repair related to this problem to offer a refund.



According to Apple, affected units were manufactured between September 2016 and February 2018 and were sold in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macao, and the United States. Model numbers that are impacted by the hardware failure include A1660, A1780, and A779, and customers can see if they are affected by checking the model number on the back of their device.



We first heard hints of this bug in September of 2016, when Apple launched an investigation into iPhone 7 devices that were displaying a “No Service” message after customers activated and then disabled Airplane Mode.



Apple’s repair program is only available for the iPhone 7, and Apple will examine all iPhones prior to service to verify that the iPhone in question is impacted by the bug and eligible for repair. Apple says that devices with other damage, such as a cracked screen, will need to have those problems addressed before the “No Service” bug can be fixed.



Customers who are in need of a repair should contact an Authorized Apple Service Provider, visit an Apple retail store, or get in touch with Apple support. Apple will be sending all iPhone 7 models in need of repair to an Apple Repair Center.



The new iPhone 7 repair program covers affected iPhone 7 devices for two years after the first retail sale of the unit.

Baked Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeno Poppers
Linda Xiao

Jalapeño poppers are a classic party appetizer, but instead of going to the frozen aisle before game day, try making your own instead. Our baked version keeps the spicy-and-savory mix of the original with way less calories.

Plus, it’s actually good for you—regularly chowing down on spicy foods can add years to your life, research shows. Additionally, Capsaicin, found in jalapeños, can boost your metabolism and make you feel full.

Directions: 
Preheat oven to 325°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a medium bowl,stir together cream cheese, cheddar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Spoon filling into each jalapeño cavity. Then top jalapeños with a sprinkle of panko crumbs. Place peppers on baking sheet, cavity-side up. Lightly spray peppers with cooking spray. Bake until filling is melted and panko crumbs are golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
