Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 11:44 AM EDT Sep 19, 2019 Allen Park — It's Thursday and we've got plenty of Detroit Lions mail to sift through. ► Question. Do you feel that 90, 96 and 98 are still rounding into football shape? And if so, have any of them commented on when they feel they will be? — @legendjc13 ► Answer. A completely reasonable question given we haven't seen the impact performance we've been led to expect from Trey Flowers (90), Mike Daniels (96) and Damon Harrison (98). Let me say this: None of the players have played poorly. Each has shown flashes of doing what they do best. Teams are still largely avoiding running at Harrison, Flowers is setting strong edges in the ground game and both Daniels and Flowers have generated a bit of quarterback pressure. But for three guys working with big deals, you expect more. I get it, and the demand is fair. And you're right, each of those … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions mailbag: Give defensive front time to find footing

During the height of the Space Age, the United States and the Soviet Union bushwhacked a frantic path to the lunar surface, landing nearly 20 spacecraft softly on the moon between 1966 and 1976, including the six carrying NASA’s Apollo astronauts. But after the last of these missions, a robotic Soviet probe that brought back six ounces of lunar soil, Earth’s closest neighbor was virtually abandoned. The public and politicians lost interest. While the occasional orbiter has launched to survey the moon since then, in more than 42 years only one spacecraft touched down softly on the lunar surface: China’s Chang’e 3 in 2013. However, the moon, often referred to as the eighth continent, is again the center of a reinvigorated space race that, like any good Hollywood reboot, features a new cast of characters and novel story lines. There is the rise of China, which on Jan. 3 landed a spacecraft on the far side of the moon, a historic first. This month, an Israeli … [Read more...] about NASA wants to get to the moon ‘as fast as possible.’ But countries like China and India are racing there, too.
The 91st annual Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 24. In preparation, INSIDER looked back at the most glaring missteps in Oscars history. The 14 movies listed here did not deserve at least one of their golden men. Some are radically whitewashed or include problematic characters and storylines. For every well-deserved award earned at the Oscars, there’s another tiny golden man sitting on the wrong shelf. Each and every year, much is said and written about which movies didn’t deserve their Oscar nominations or trophies. But hindsight is a much more accurate indicator of whether an awarded film belongs amongst the greats. Here are 14 of the most glaring missteps in Oscars history. “The Shape of Water” won best picture in 2018. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” was instantly beloved amongst critics and Academy members. It was the most-nominated film at the 2018 Oscars and won four out of 13 awards, including best … [Read more...] about 14 Oscar-winning movies that haven’t stood the test of time
opinion David M. Shribman Published 9:54 PM EST Jan 9, 2019 Hart's Location, N.H. ‘’In our town, we like to know the facts about everyone.’’ The words were Thornton Wilder’s, they were written more than three-quarter of a century ago, and they can be found in the lines of ‘’Our Town,’’ the quintessential New Hampshire drama — quintessential, that is, unless you are talking about the drama that just now is unfolding in small North Country hamlets like this one or in the cities in the central and southern parts of the state. Because what began taking form last week here in the site of the first primary of the 2020 presidential election has the makings of quite a drama. As many as 20 candidates. New faces, familiar faces, some very old faces. Lust for the White House after two years of Donald J. Trump as president. This is where the knowing all the facts about everyone comes in. Hart’s Location, with a population … [Read more...] about Hopeful Dems rush toward Hart’s Location
