Warriors’ Draymond Green eyes defensive strides

«SFGate» (sfgate.com) 

HOUSTON — In June, when Warriors forward Draymond Green won his first Defensive Player of the Year award, his friend and mentor, four-time Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace, shot him a text: “You’ve still got to win three more to be on my level.” It is a challenge Green probably won’t make progress toward meeting this year. More than halfway through the season, a nagging shoulder injury and a dearth of defensive highlights have left him out of the Defensive Player of the Year discussion. Читать дальше...

Administration pledge to minimize shutdown faces early test

«SFGate» (sfgate.com) 

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration's pledge to minimize the impact of a government shutdown faces an early test as a number of iconic American landmarks announce they will be closed. The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, symbols of American promise, were shuttered Saturday due to what the National Park Service describes as "a lapse in appropriations." That's a bureaucratic term for a lack of money. The New York sites are two of the world's top tourist destinations. In Philadelphia, crowds of tourists can't get into see the Liberty Bell or Independence Hall... Читать дальше...

Re: FFS cotterill, we're playing well & getting results

Small Heath Alliance 

This game mngt/ subs too late is a total red herring people are using because they've decided they don't like him and need a way to justify their position.

I'll tell you why it's bollocks

1. If we're on top, playing well, creating chances why the eff would you bring on Jota? He's been consistently crap. It would NOT increase the chance of us winning,bit would reduce it.

2. Adams is not a left winger; he's never been comfortable there. SC rightly git stick for putting Gallagher out there so you can't argue he should put Adams out there on 70 mins. Читать дальше...

Everybody calling for it doesn't make it right.

Jota has been poor, why on earth bring him on when we're on top & playing well. Likely make us worse not better.

Admittedly Adams wide left for boga on 85 is a bit pointless but would our chances of a win really have increased that much if he'd come on 10 it 15 earlier?


Jota came off the bench against Leeds and contributed massively to the win... he’s got the ability to unlock... Читать дальше...






Vikings breakout quarterback Case Keenum learned the team's offense 2 years faster than normal by taking thousands of reps on VR

Business Insider 

Paul Sancya/AP

  • Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum had a career season in 2017, taking over the starting quarterback spot after beginning the season as a backup.
  • Keenum helped learn the Vikings' offense by taking thousands of repetitions with VR, according to ESPN.
  • Veteran quarterbacks said it used to take them three years to be fully comfortable in an offense while Keenum mastered it in just one season.


Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum had a career season in 2017 as he commanded the starting position once he got a chance, never relinquished it, and now has his team one step away from the Super Bowl.

Though Keenum was slated to be the backup, he took over when Sam Bradford got hurt, then played too well to turn the reins over to Teddy Bridgewater once he got healthy.

According to ESPN's Courtney Cronin, Keenum, who has played on three teams in five years, got a leg up on the competition by using VR to learn the Vikings' offense. Читать дальше...

Lindsey Graham seems like the only person trying to fix the government shutdown

Vox 

Nobody else is making a deal. But Graham has a big problem standing in his way.

Right now, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina looks like the only lawmaker in Congress trying to make a deal that would re-open the federal government.

In the Senate Friday night, in a desperate but ultimately failed attempt to avert a government shutdown, Graham was the main character. He had started the evening shuttling between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), eating a little dinner with each — the Republican leader had pepperoni pizza, Schumer had chicken, Graham told reporters.

On the Senate floor, with a procedural vote on the House Republican spending bill short on support as expected, Graham was in the middle of a throng of 13 Republican and Democratic senators trying to cut a deal. Читать дальше...

Netball Proteas fall just short against world champions Australia

Independent Online 

South Africa suffered a close four-point defeat to Australia in London on Saturday evening.

The 54-50 defeat was the Proteas’ closest losing margin in history the two sides have crossed swords against each other. 

It was a tit-for-tat battle between the northern- and southern-hemisphere sides.

The Proteas side took an early lead, with Maryke Holtzhauzen landing the first shot. South Africa claimed an early three-point lead after the first 15 minutes of the encounter.

The Proteas enjoyed a mere three-point lead after the first quarter to give them a further confidence boost.

The world champions extended their lead by four goals shortly after the break, but the South Africans clawed their way back to get within a point with a minute to go to the recess.

The Aussies landed counter blows, but the Proteas levelled the scores shortly before the break before the Proteas claimed a one-point (26-25) at the recess. Читать дальше...

THE FUTURE OF LIFE INSURANCE: How insurtechs are tackling this notoriously tricky area of insurance

Business Insider 

BI Intelligence

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

Life insurance is a fundamentally hard product to sell, as it requires people to think about their deaths and promises no immediate rewards.

The way life insurance is sold makes it doubly unattractive, as consumers have to go through an paper-based, lengthy application process and a bothersome medical exam, with little guidance from their providers, and often at high cost. Читать дальше...

Donald Trump Responds to Nationwide Protests at Women's March: 'Get Out There Now to Celebrate'

People.com 

Donald Trump has shared his thoughts on the numerous Women’s Marches being held nationwide this Saturday — and it’s not what you would expect.

“Beautiful weather all over our great country,” the president wrote on social media Saturday afternoon, adding that it was “a perfect day for all Women to March.”

“Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!” he continued, as he chose not to acknowledge the fact that the Women’s March is a protest against his policies, and not a celebration of his claims of “economic success.”

Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Читать дальше...
