It’s the biggest show in TV and the whole world, so, yeah; it’s still huge for every player.” “He had a little setback with his other leg,” Arians said, “but last week he couldn’t play on Friday, and he only caught 200 yards worth, so hopefully it’s the same.”Brown is coming off his best game as a pro. He posted career highs in receptions (10) and receiving yards (196) in last week’s loss in Pittsburgh. His 196 receiving yards were tied for the sixth-best single-game total in team history. While Brown will play, tight end Darren Fells (shoulder) and linebacker Alex Okafor (calf) will not because of injury. Fells got hurt against Pittsburgh and did not practice, while Okafor is missing his second straight game. The remaining inactives include quarterback Matt Barkley, linebacker Shaq Riddick, tackle D.J. Humphries, tackle/guard Earl Watford and nose tackle Xavier Williams.Receiver J.J. Nelson is suiting up for his first action since Week 2, when he suffered a shoulder injury at Chicago.For the Ravens, safety Terrence Brooks (thumb), receiver Breshad Perriman (knee) and tight end Maxx Williams (knee/ankle) are out due to injury. Also sitting are receiver Jeremy Butler, safety Kendrick Lewis, center Ryan Jensen and defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore.The Cardinals are looking to bounce back after their second defeat in three weeks.center_img GLENDALE, Ariz. – No player wants to miss a game, especially when that game is played on Monday night.“I’ll be ready to go,” wide receiver John Brown told reporters Saturday.And he is. The Arizona Cardinals’ second-leading receiver is active despite some concerns ahead of the matchup against Baltimore that a hamstring issue might keep him out of the lineup. Brown explained the hamstring tightened up “a little bit” on him as he was running routes. Brown was limited in practice on Thursday and Saturday, and he didn’t practice at all on Friday; all of which led to him being listed as questionable on the final injury report.

Go Back To School At The FCPA Institute – Indianapolis Sept 2829

first_imgLearning a new topic or elevating your knowledge and practical skills in a topic is not just for formal students in formal educational settings. Professionals in the workplace can also benefit from back to “school” moments.For professionals in the FCPA space – or wishing to join the FCPA space – the FCPA Institute serves this objective and the next FCPA Institute will take place in Indianapolis on September 28-29, 2017.At a typical FCPA conference, 40-50 individuals bombard you with information during various panels. Just introducing these countless individuals takes over one hour in the aggregate. Moreover, the 3 p.m. panelists were likely not present for the 10 a.m. panel, thus information is presented in a disjointed and largely repetitive fashion.The FCPA Institute is different than a typical FCPA conference. At the FCPA Institute, information is presented in an integrated and cohesive manner by an expert instructor with FCPA practice and teaching experience.Moreover, the FCPA Institute promotes active learning by participants through issue-spotting video exercises, skills exercises, small-group discussions, and the sharing of real-world practices and experiences. To best facilitate the unique learning experience that the FCPA Institute represents, attendance at each FCPA Institute is capped at 25 participants.In short, the FCPA Institute elevates the FCPA learning experience for a diverse group of professionals and is offered as a refreshing and cost-effective alternative to a typical FCPA conference. The goal of the FCPA Institute is simple: to develop and enhance fundamental skills relevant to the FCPA, FCPA enforcement, and FCPA compliance best practices in a stimulating and professional environment with a focus on learning.The FCPA Institute presents the FCPA not merely as a legal issue, but also as a business, finance, accounting, and auditing issue. The FCPA Institute is thus ideal for a diverse group of professionals such as in-house and outside counsel; compliance professionals; finance, accounting, and auditing professionals; and others seeking sophisticated knowledge and enhanced skills relevant to the FCPA.Set forth below is what prior FCPA Institute “graduates” have said about their experience.“Unlike other FCPA conferences where one leaves with a spinning head and unanswered questions, I left the FCPA Institute with a firm understanding of the nuts and bolts of the FCPA, the ability to spot issues, and knowledge of where resources can be found that offer guidance in resolving an issue. The limited class size of the FCPA Institute ensured that all questions were answered and the interactive discussion among other compliance professionals was fantastic.”  ( Rob Foster, In-House Counsel, Oil and Gas Company)“The FCPA Institute was one of the best professional development investments of time and money that I have made since law school. The combination of black letter law and practical insight was invaluable. I would highly recommend the FCPA Institute to any professional who has compliance, ethics, legal or international business responsibilities.” ( Norm Keith, Partner, Fasken Martineau, Toronto).“The FCPA Institute is very different than other FCPA conferences I have attended. It was interactive, engaging, thought-provoking and at the completion of the Institute I left feeling like I had really learned something new and useful for my job. The FCPA Institute is a must-attend for all compliance folks (in-house or external).” (Robert Wieck, CPA, CIA, CFE, Forensic Audit Senior Manager, Oracle Corporation)“The FCPA Institute is a top-flight conference that offers an insightful, comprehensive review of the FCPA enforcement landscape. Professor Koehler’s focus on developing practical skills in an intimate setting really sets it apart from other FCPA conferences. One of the best features of the FCPA Institute is its diversity of participants and the ability to learn alongside in-house counsel, company executives and finance professionals. ( Blair Albom, Associate, Debevoise & Plimpton)“The FCPA Institute was a professionally enriching experience and substantially increased my understanding of the FCPA and its enforcement. Professor Koehler’s extensive insight and practical experience lends a unique view to analyzing enforcement actions and learning compliance best practices. I highly recommend the FCPA Institute to practitioners from all career stages.” ( Sherbir Panag, MZM Legal, Mumbia, India)“The FCPA Institute provided an in-depth look into the various forces that have shaped, and that are shaping, FCPA enforcement. The diverse group of participants provided unique insight into how, at a practical level, various professionals evaluate risk and deal with FCPA issues on a day-to-day basis. The small group setting, the interactive nature of the event, and the skills assessment test all set the FCPA Institute apart from other FCPA conferences or panel-based events.” ( John Turlais, Senior Counsel, Foley & Lardner)FCPA Institute participants not only gain knowledge, practical skills and peer insight, but can also elect to have their knowledge assessed to earn a certificate of completion upon passing a written assessment tool. In this way, successful completion of the FCPA Institute represents a value-added credential for professional development. In addition, attorneys who complete the FCPA Institute are eligible to receive Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) credits and prior FCPA Institute participants have also received continuing education units from the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics.To learn more about the FCPA Institute and to register for the Indianapolis event, click here.last_img read more
