Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT May 22, 2019 When Detroit Lions linebacker Jahlani Tavai walked off the practice field Tuesday for the first day of organized team activities open to the media, he was a little surprised by how many reporters were waiting to speak with him for the first time since the Lions selected him in the second round of the NFL draft last month. Tavai was asked if he had paid any attention to the coverage he got for being picked so high. “No, I don’t really care, worry about anything,” he said. “I think there was a quote: ‘Lions don’t listen to the opinions of goats or whatever.’ ” You’ll have to forgive Tavai if he doesn’t have all his soundbites down perfectly. The quote he was referencing comes from the “Game of Thrones” character Tywin Lannister: “A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinions of a sheep.” Regardless of the exact wording, … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions Jahlani Tavai on draft reaction: I don’t care

Heather Taylor, provided by Published 4:39 pm CDT, Tuesday, May 14, 2019 Luis Alvarez/Getty Images Change is difficult, but switching jobs is necessary for both personal and professional growth. You may be coasting at your current job, or getting underpaid, which is preventing you from being more successful. Here are seven tips from experts on why it may be a good idea to switch careers. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Statistics have long suggested that working professionals will have up to seven careers in their lifetime. However, this claim should be taken with a grain of salt — there's not much substantial research backing that figure, and it becomes less and less relevant in our current job-hopping work climate. The reality, according to several career experts, is not to anticipate a lifetime of seven long-term careers. It's to plan to change your job regularly every few years, even if you like what you do and feel comfortable. Change … [Read more...] about 7 reasons to change jobs, even if you don’t want to
Gallery: Many Appalachian residents don't believe climate change is real or caused by humans. Why, and how are scientists so certain? +10 more photos Paul Barys stood in front of a TV camera. Behind him, a green screen tracked ominous weather patterns. Five-day weather forecasts were largely unpredictable at the time, but the lean, bearded meteorologist knew something major was about to happen. It was 1993, and he'd been in the city for just eight years. His bosses were giving him the leeway afforded a veteran of nearly a decade, but he hadn't fully built the trust and credibility a 30-year career would later bring. But he stood there that night about to make a bold claim — one that, if he was wrong, could cost him that trust and derail his career. "It's going to be the worst storm in the history of Chattanooga," he told viewers that March night. His news manager was furious. "'Why did you say that?' he told Barys. 'You're sticking your neck way out. You're going to get it … [Read more...] about Many Appalachian residents don’t believe climate change is real or caused by humans. But why?

Two years ago, I came into work on December 1 to find a bag on my desk labelled “Karen’s Christmas Intervention”. It contained many Christmas themed gifts and challenges – such as watching a Christmas DVD and going to a carol service. These were all designed to help me find something to like about Christmas. I tried everything – after all, someone had made a big effort. But while I enjoyed completing each challenge, it didn’t change my values. I remain a Grinch. In many parts of the world, we are expected to love Christmas and embrace all things about it. Anyone who doesn’t is quickly labelled a Grinch and advised to keep their views to themselves so that they don’t ruin a magical time for others. But how reasonable is this? And if you are a Grinch, how can you survive the yuletide season? Quite simply, a Grinch is a person who dislikes Christmas. Some definitions suggest that Grinches try to spoil Christmas for others.
