Arkansas quarterback John Stephen Jones rolls out to pass Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018, during practice at the university's practice facility in Fayetteville. - Photo by Andy Shupe It is a little more than 72 hours -- depending on what time you read this -- before the University of Arkansas Razorbacks kick off their 125th football season. This one is complete with a newly expanded stadium, new life and new hopes. With that in mind, here are a few things to expect and not expect from this season: Expect: Lots of energy and enthusiasm on the sidelines. Don't expect: A lot of profanity, especially from head Coach Chad Morris, who is a very religious man who walks the walk and talks the talk but never carries it on his sleeves. Expect: To see freshmen play. Expect them in the first four games. Don't expect: All of the freshmen who are going to play to be in action during the first four games. Under the new rules, the coach can decide which four games a freshman can play and still redshirt. … [Read more...] about WALLY HALL: Keep expectations reasonable for new Hogs

Arkansas consumers and the state Medicaid program would continue to pay a higher fee in 2020 to support the operations of a state-run health insurance exchange under a recommendation by a committee on Tuesday. This year, the fee collected by the Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace is equal to 3 percent of the premiums of the non-Medicaid plans sold on the exchange. Half the fee -- which is expected to generate $8.3 million this year -- goes to the federal government to pay expenses associated with the federal website, healthcare.gov, where consumers can enroll. The other half goes to the state marketplace, which certifies the plans and helps consumers sign up. The fee is set to rise next year to 4.25 percent to cover an increase in the federal fee, which will go from 1.5 percent to 3 percent. As a result of the increase, the fee for the first time will be higher than what insurance companies pay in the 34 states that don't have their own exchanges. In those states, which rely solely … [Read more...] about Keep insurance fee high, panelists say

Published May 07, 2018 Markets Motley Fool Facebook Twitter Comments Print Naysayers keep getting burned by Shake Shack (NYSE: SHAK). The fast-growing burger chain soared 18.4% last week after posting blowout financial results. The heavily shorted stock would go on to hit its highest level since the summer of 2015 on Friday. Revenue rose 29% to $99.1 million for the first quarter, comfortably ahead of the $96.3 million that analysts were expecting. The major top-line driver was the chain's brisk expansion. We've seen Shake Shack store counts grow from 127 to 168 systemwide units over the past year. Domestic company-owned locations -- the beefy component accounting for 97% of its revenue -- have increased by 24 to 95 in that time. However, unit-level sales did improve. The 1.7% uptick in comps comes as a relief to investors, as bears have argued that Shake Shack's expansion will cannibalize sales at existing locations. It's not happening at the moment. … [Read more...] about Can Shake Shack Stock Keep Going After Last Week’s 18% Pop?
