DK Metcalf could be yours — if the price is right.

Teams that are willing to bid for the Seahawks wide receiver could be in luck: ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Metcalf could be had this offseason, if the trade package is satisfactory.

Fowler reports that the Seahawks, amidst a contract-extension standstill with the wideout, could move on from Metcalf for the right price, despite the team publicly and privately throwing support behind him this offseason.

Metcalf turns 25 this December and grabbed 75 passes for 967 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season. His 82.5 receiving grade in 2021 ranked 12th among all wide receivers in the league according to PFF.

Metcalf's availability and a potential trade shouldn't be all that surprising, given the Seahawks' half-in-half-out approach over the last two seasons. And, after all, if Tyreek Hill can be traded, then anyone can.

Should Metcalf hit the trade block, there are more than a handful of teams who could benefit from having his services in 2022.

DK Metcalf landing spots

The Packers are loaded up with two first-round picks after trading Davante Adams to the Raiders, giving them maximum flexibility with their direction before April 28. The only issue is whatever contract Green Bay may be able to offer in a potential deal, since the Packers are just about up against the cap prior to any trade.

That said, the Packers are fortunate that this is a deep wide receiver draft: There could be as many as six first-round receivers, with viable players available for both their picks at No. 22 and No. 28.

It's tough to see a world in which the Seahawks trade Metcalf within the conference, but with the team desperately needing to hit the reset button, they should be chasing the best package without concern of where that package may come from.

Gang Green was probably looking and feeling green after missing out on Tyreek Hill, so expect them to be fully in on Metcalf. General manager Joe Douglas has said that the team is planning to be active if the right players hit the trade market.

While Metcalf might not be the shifty, smaller, ideal route-running receiver that would work best in the Mike LaFleur-designed offense, he would still give Zach Wilson a de facto WR1 and deep threat. There's also the added benefit that Metcalf would be reunited with former college teammate Elijah Moore, if you believe in such things.

The Jets were also reportedly willing to pay massive money for a Tyreek Hill extension, so money would be no object in any potential deal.

The Tyreek Hill trade has put the Chiefs offense in a tough spot: Yes, they still have Patrick Mahomes, but he needs someone to throw to — and it can't just be Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman.

With the money being the main hurdle that led to the Hill trade, it's hard to see the Chiefs trading away the one-of-a-kind Hill for Metcalf and then paying Metcalf Hill-like money, but they are in desperate need of an outside receiver.

That said, Mahomes, Andy Reid and Eric Bieniemy have shown a propensity to be able to develop receivers, and with a very deep receiver group in this year's NFL Draft, there's a good chance KC could take receivers early and often this year.

If the Eagles are determined to move forward with Jalen Hurts under center, then they'll need to surround him with weapons as best as they can.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman has three first-round picks to work with, making it easy to part with at least one in any deal for Metcalf. Any move for Metcalf would also push Jalen Reagor down the depth chart — something that would be a welcome sight for Philly faithful.

DeVonta Smith showed some promise, though he didn't make the immediate impact that some thought he might in 2021. A lot of that pressure would be alleviated instantly with a Metcalf deal.

Chicago needs to do more than they have to try and help Justin Fields thrive in Year 2: The Bears have added Byron Pringle and Equanimeous St. Brown, a pair of depth signings that no one will mistake for a legit 1-2 punch at wideout.

Chicago is still without a first-round pick, which may put the Bears behind the 8-ball when it comes to potential negotiations with the other teams on this list. They do, though, have a pair of second-round picks they could part with.

Caltrans Announces Sustainable Transportation Grants

Caltrans today announced it will grant $34.7 million for planning for sustainable communities. The grants will be awarded to cities and counties to begin or complete planning for resilience, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and sometimes just to get up to speed with state climate goals.

The grants come from state funding sources, including the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account, funded by S.B. 1, and the State Highway Account, as well as federal sources for planning and transit.

Examples include:

Other grants will fund the study of multimodal station access (Spring Street Station in La Mesa) and transit priority treatments (“On the Move,” in San Diego, which also intends to deploy some tactical urbanism, which it calls “community-led short term, low-cost, and scalable interventions to provide benefits to people walking, biking, and taking transit particularly in disadvantaged and vulnerable communities”).

Complete streets plans, multimodal corridor planning, and transportation demand management plans are also on the list of grant awardees. So is one plan to study “Advanced Air Mobility Services” in San Diego – which seems to be about drones and helicopters.

Plans for transitioning to zero-emission transit (Tahoe, Stanislaus, Shasta, and Plumas transit districts), including charging infrastructure (Sacramento region) and freight (central coast) will receive grants, as will several zero emission vehicle incentive programs. One of these, in Monterey, specifically includes e-bike incentives, but not all of them do.

There are also grants for at least one automatic transit passenger counting system and the development of a climate adaptation planning process to protect Alameda and the Oakland shoreline from sea level rise.

The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority, which will receive almost $600,000 from S.B. 1 funding, admits in its application that it hasn’t always paid attention to its own plans. But it will do better!

“The SBCTA is entering a new era of transportation planning,” declares its grant application. “While SBCTA has had a Countywide Transportation Plan with multimodal and sustainability elements since 2015, these elements have not been fully integrated, nor has it kept up with major changes in policy. In particular, it has not been resilient enough to respond to disruptions seen over the last few years: COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and changes in technology and travel that have ensued. It is now time to build a new foundation that will produce a Long Range Multimodal Transportation Plan (LRMTP) that will adapt and respond to these challenges.”

Its new plan will “respond to new policy initiatives from the California Transportation Plan 2050 and the Climate Action Plan for Transportation Infrastructure” and that’s a promise.

In partnership with UCLA, renowned artist and alumnus Refik Anadol has created a multisensory experience that commemorates the beauty of nature and seeks to aid in our collective renewal through the power of art. The multimedia installation titled “Moment of Reflection” will be displayed April 19–22 in the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden.

Free and open to the public, all are invited to experience a never-before-seen media installation designed especially for UCLA. Viewing hours are from 6-10 a.m. and 4-10 p.m. daily. An opening-night unveiling featuring remarks from Anadol and UCLA Chancellor Gene Block will be held on Tuesday, April 19 at 7 p.m.

Anadol is a media artist, director and pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence. He earned a master of fine arts from UCLA’s Department of Design Media Arts, where he currently serves as a lecturer. His body of work addresses the challenges and possibilities that ubiquitous computing has imposed on humanity. In his art, which often features colorful, animated images in a constant state of dynamic transformation, Anadol explores what it means to be human in the age of artificial intelligence.

Tens of thousands of Angelenos experienced Anadol’s “WDCH Dreams,” a week-long public art installation created for the 2018-19 Los Angeles Philharmonic’s centennial season, as both a 15-minute multisensory show that was projected onto the Walt Disney Concert Hall exterior accompanied by music, and in a season-long immersive exhibition inside the Ira Gershwin Gallery.

Anadol, and the team of artists, architects, data scientists and researchers who together make up Refik Anadol Studio, created the data sculpture especially for the UCLA campus by feeding machine learning algorithms a dataset of more than 300 million photographs of nature (landscapes, flowers, trees, clouds, water, lakes and the ocean). These massive, publicly available data sets, which Anadol refers to as “memories of humanity,” are the foundation of what the AI learns before it can dream of nature from an alternative perspective, or what the artist calls “the mind of a machine.”

The “Moment of Reflection” event was conceived in partnership with the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture.

“While there is much to be hopeful for in the months ahead, we also have much to reflect upon now that it has been more than two years since COVID-19 turned our lives upside down,” Block said. “Since we are able to gather in person again, I want to invite members of our community to join us for a special event that can help us process some of the difficulties we’ve endured, as well as build the hope and connection that will help all of us move forward.”

The arts are a vibrant part of UCLA life, with year-round research and public programming from the School of the Arts and Architecture, the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, the School of Theater, Film and Television, the Film & Television Archive, the Hammer and Fowler museums and the campus public performing arts presenter, Center for the Art of Performance all under the auspices of the Go Arts UCLA initiative.

“To have our artwork displayed at my alma mater is an honor,” Anadol said. “I hope people find some healing from their personal moment of reflection while experiencing the art.”

Anadol’s body of work lies at the intersection of art, architecture, science and technology. One piece in particular, 2018’s “Melting Memories,” sparked a specific interest in neuroscience.

“When my uncle was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I saw his memories literally melting away, I imagined a way to honor those memories and give them new life,” he said. “Collaborating with brilliant minds in the field of neuroscience, we gathered data from people in their moment of remembering, and used that data as the basis for the artwork.”

Anadol recalled hearing from people that his art was helping them in some way.

“My art has always been created intentionally for all audiences — transcending age, culture and background,” he said. “If any of our artworks help someone find peace, or relaxation or better their mood, that is super inspiring for me.”

Since embarking on this journey of artistic practice, Anadol has also been in close and ongoing collaboration with members of the UCLA scientific community, advancing the value of art as critical research.

For a forthcoming project, UCLA neuroscientists will show selections of Anadol’s video creations to research study participants while mapping their brain activity during an MRI. They will collect data on participants’ mood, anxiety, stress and sleep levels, seeking evidence on how art might affect brain function.

“We’re intrigued by the notion of whether both viewing and experiencing art might promote new brain connections, leading to improved cognitive and mental well-being,” said Dr. Helen Lavretsky, professor-in-residence of psychiatry.

Lavretsky’s ongoing research is related to integrative mental health using mind-body interventions. She’s part of a group collaborating with Anadol that includes Taylor Kuhn, an assistant research neuroscientist in psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences department.

“If we are successful in demonstrating a meaningful connection between art and mental disorders such as anxiety and stress, this study could serve as a foundation for evaluating immersive artwork as a digital neurotherapeutic,” Kuhn said.

Kuhn is the coordinator of the Lifespan Human Connectome Projects, which are affiliated with both the UCLA Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and the UCLA Brain Mapping Center. He previously collaborated with Anadol on a unique 3D-printed and projection-mapping installation titled “Sense of Space,” which was presented at the 2021 Venice Biennale. This work showcased Anadol’s AI-generated art based on MRI data from the Lifespan Human Connectome Project that revealed the structure and function of healthy brains across the human lifespan.

High metal prices and green tech a boon for Ontario mining, says industry

High metal prices and a push to move away from fossil fuels for transportation have benefited both junior and larger mining companies in northeastern Ontario.Paul Fowler, senior vice-president of junior miner Magna Mining, said the high price of nickel makes it viable for the company to reopen the Shakespeare mine near Espanola, Ont.He said the company did a feasibility study at the mine in January, in which it estimated the nickel deposit's value at $8.50 US per pound, and again at a nickel price of $12 per pound."...

High metal prices and a push to move away from fossil fuels for transportation have benefited both junior and larger mining companies in northeastern Ontario.

Paul Fowler, senior vice-president of junior miner Magna Mining, said the high price of nickel makes it viable for the company to reopen the Shakespeare mine near Espanola, Ont.

He said the company did a feasibility study at the mine in January, in which it estimated the nickel deposit's value at $8.50 US per pound, and again at a nickel price of $12 per pound.

"The value of our project… increased by over 100 per cent in dollar terms or $250 million as the nickel price increased from $8.50 to $12," Fowler said.

"So the impact on our project is huge. It makes the economics excellent and we fully expect to be proceeding with it as soon as we can."

As of Thursday the price of nickel was around $14.80 US per pound.

Fowler said the high price was due in part to growing demand for nickel for lithium ion batteries, which power everything from electric vehicles to cell phones, and Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the global sanctions that followed.

He said Russia accounts for around 10 per cent of global nickel production and up to 20 per cent of Class 1 nickel production, which is of a higher purity, and used for electric vehicle batteries.

Peter Xavier, vice-president of mining giant Glencore's Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations, said a higher nickel price helps make the business case when the company has to go deeper underground to mine the metal.

The company's upcoming Onaping Depth Project, expected to start production in 2025, will be one of the world's deepest mines at a depth of 2,600 metres.

Xavier said growing global demand for metals like nickel, lithium and platinum have also benefited the company and its Sudbury operations.

"For us in the industry, you know, we always knew that we were critically important," he said. "And we produce the things we produce for a reason; because the world needs it and there's a certain purpose behind that."

Xavier said companies like Glencore are in regular contact with auto manufacturers to help meet their needs as they build more electric vehicles.

Viable projects

Gold producers have also benefited from higher prices more recently.

Quentin Yarie, president and CEO of junior miner Red Pine Exploration, said his company hopes to develop a gold deposit near Wawa, Ont., now that the price has surpassed $1,900 US per ounce

"The economics of many projects that weren't economic before became far more economic and of greater interest to exploration companies," he said.

Ontario Mining Association President Chris Hodgson said the opportunities for Ontario's mining industry are at a high point thanks to efforts to electrify the economy and boost electric vehicle production around the world.

"We've got, you know, a $10 billion industry in Ontario right now," he said. "But the potential is huge as you see the world switching from fossil fuels to electrification, they need the materials that we produce in Sudbury and Ontario."

Hodgson said Ontario's new critical minerals strategy will also provide more clarity for the mining industry and stakeholders, such as government and First Nations partners.

"Don't underestimate that. That's a huge advantage," he said.

"It entails that we have clear rules, honestly applied and we attract investment from all over the world."
