Jeff Seidel Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 I wanted to watch a movie with my wife and I suggested, “A Dog’s Purpose.” “I don’t want to watch a dog die 19 times,” she said. Then it dawned on me: That’s the essence of what it’s like for Detroit Lions' fans. You are forced to watch them die every year, right in front of your eyes. Over and over. Like it's some awful torture test. And now, just two games into a new season, this team is already dead. That’s the curse of being 0-2. The worst part of this team is the lack of hope, not just for this season but for the future. The only thing you can count on from this organization is disappointment in the end. The idea was to bring in the Patriot Way — general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia. Birkett: Lions need a defensive enema, and some, to fix their issues More: Matt Patricia to Lions fans: I understand their frustration But … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions new regime seems unable to change misfortune

Traders largely aren't moved by President Donald Trump's tweets on trade, except in the soybeans market. China relies on soybeans imported from the US to restrain the price of pork, a major staple protein in the country. Economists at Goldman Sachs used a regression analysis to look into the relationship between Trump's tweets and the performance of various asset classes. President Donald Trump's tweets on trade don't mean much to traders except in the soybeans market, according to Goldman Sachs. Economists at the firm looked into the link between Trump's tweets on trade and stock-market volatility, as measured by the CBOE Volatility Index, or the VIX. They found that traders largely shrugged off Trump's tweets containing the words "trade" or "tariff," even as the US engaged in disputes with China, Canada, Mexico, and the European Union. 124 PHOTOS Trump's most outlandish and bombastic tweets of 2017 See Gallery Trump's most outlandish and … [Read more...] about There’s one market that’s vulnerable to Trump’s tweets, according to Goldman Sachs

They may persist for years, studies show. ByRoni Caryn Rabin June 11, 2018 Ever since he had Lasik surgery two years ago, Geobanni Ramirez sees everything in triplicate. The surgery he hoped would improve his vision left the 33-year-old graphic artist struggling with extreme light sensitivity, double vision and visual distortions that create halos around bright objects and turn headlights into blinding starbursts. His eyes are so dry and sore that he puts drops in every half-hour; sometimes they burn “like when you’re chopping onions.” His night vision is so poor that going out after dark is treacherous. But Mr. Ramirez says that as far as his surgeon is concerned, he is a success story. “My vision is considered … [Read more...] about Lasik’s Risks Are Coming Into Sharper Focus
Women around the world are obsessed with Kayla Itsines, an Instagram-famous fitness trainer from Australia. Itsines has managed to cultivate what devoted fans call an “Army” with her lucrative Bikini Body Guide business. They will fill a venue, packed tightly like sweaty sardines, to exercise in the presence of their famous trainer. The core of her business is a series of PDFs (and now, a sometimes-criticised app) that come complete with a 12-week workout plan and a nutrition manual. But the real gem of her branding is her viral Instagram account, with over 5 million followers. It’s an amalgam of social media-friendly platitudes, photos of her enviable abs, some of her colourful meals, and — most notably — striking before-and-after photos of her “girls” who have taken on the her workout plan and lived to show the results.
