April 23, 2020 /Sports News – Local Packers move up in draft to take Utah State QB Jordan Love Written by Tags: Aaron Rodgers/Green Bay Packers/Jordan Love/NFL Draft FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)-The Green Bay Packers hope they have found a potential successor to Aaron Rodgers.They were willing to trade up in the first round and bypass more immediate needs to land him.Green Bay continued its recent penchant for draft-day trades and moved up four spots to take Utah State quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th overall pick in the NFL draft Thursday night. The Miami Dolphins also got a fourth-round pick in the trade.“We think a lot of him,” Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said. “We think down the road, he certainly has all the ability to be a difference maker at that position, but these things take time, especially at that position.”The move fortifies Green Bay’s quarterback depth and provides an heir apparent for Rodgers, a 36-year-old, two-time MVP. Green Bay’s current backup to Rodgers is 25-year-old Tim Boyle, a 2018 undrafted free agent who played at Connecticut and Eastern Kentucky.But it doesn’t provide immediate help for a team that wants to take the next step after going 13-3 in the regular season last year before losing in the NFC championship game. The Packers have clear needs at wide receiver and inside linebacker that now will need to be addressed later in the draft.Gutekunst said the Packers didn’t necessarily set out to take a quarterback this early but decided to strike when they had a chance to get Love. Gutekunst conceded it could be a while before Love is ready to contribute.“We’ve got the best quarterback in the National Football League, and we’re going to have him for a while competing for championships,” Gutekunst said. “I can understand the fan base and people thinking kind of, ‘Why would you do this at this time,’ but I think the value of our board and the way it’s at, I think it was best for the Green Bay Packers. We’re really excited to get Jordan here and get him in our system.”Love has earned raves for his arm strength and 6-foot-4 frame, though he had inconsistent production in college.After delivering 32 touchdown passes and only six interceptions in 2018 while leading Utah State to an 11-2 season, Love threw for 20 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season as the Aggies finished 7-6 under a new coaching staff.“I was just trying to force balls and trying to do too much,” Love said.The Packers can only hope this move works out nearly as well as the last time they used a first-round pick on a quarterback who wasn’t likely to have a featured role for a few years.Green Bay took Rodgers with the 24th overall pick in 2005 after the former California star’s stock took a draft-day plunge. Rodgers waited behind Hall of Famer Brett Favre for three years before taking over as the starter and embarking on a career that should eventually land him in Canton as well.“I haven’t connected with Aaron yet,” Gutekunst said late Thursday. “He’s obviously been through this. He’s a pro. I think certainly this is something that’s a long-term decision.”Love said he looked forward to the opportunity to start his career behind Rodgers.“I’ll be able to learn a lot from Aaron Rodgers,” Love said. “He’s one of the greats of the game, knows what he’s doing, knows a lot, has a lot of knowledge. I’ll be able to sit behind him, pick his brain and just grow as a player and develop my game and just learn as much as I can from him.”This marks the first time the Packers have used a first-round pick on an offensive player since taking Mississippi State tackle Derek Sherrod at No. 32 overall in 2011. It’s the third straight year that Gutekunst has made at least one trade on the first day of the draft.Mike Zimmer, coach of NFC North rival Minnesota, was asked about the Packers taking Love.“I think Rodgers should retire,” he joked. “I don’t know what was going on in their minds. We just worry about us. We’re trying to get guys to beat ’em.” Associated Press

Reliance Industries’ O2C business is engaged in the refining and marketing of petrochemicals. (Credit: SatyaPrem from Pixabay) Reliance Industries (RIL) announced that it has started the process of carving out its oil-to-chemicals (O2C) unit into a separate subsidiary.The O2C unit will be in charge of the Indian conglomerate’s refining and marketing, and petrochemicals activities.According to Reliance Industries, the reorganisation of the O2C business enables the participation of strategic investors and marquee sector focused investors. However, the company will retain majority control over the new subsidiary.The conglomerate expects the self-funded O2C company to focus on pursuing new growth opportunities.It further stated that the spin out will enable it to further expedite its new energy and new materials business towards realising its vision of developing clean and green energy.Reliance Industries expects the consent process to be wrapped up by the first quarter of fiscal 2022 (FY22), with approval from India’s National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) anticipated to be secured by the second quarter of FY22.The company expects to work together with O2C to achieve net carbon zero by 2035. The target is planned to be reached through the development of a green energy ecosystem and by adopting new technologies to decrease O2C’s carbon footprint.Furthermore, the conglomerate plans to invest in advanced carbon capture and storage technologies for O2C and also accelerate production of hydrogen.The conglomerate is in talks with Saudi Aramco to sell a 20% stake in the O2C unit for a sum of $15bn. Last July, Reliance Industries said that the sale had been delayed by the uncertainty resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic and unforeseen circumstances in the energy market.The primary asset of the O2C business is the Jamnagar refinery in the state of Gujarat, which is expected to be supplied with 500,000 barrels per day of Arabian crude oil from Saudi Aramco after the completion of the proposed deal.
