For NFL gamblers, it’s been a rough year for sharp bettors and our picks have in turn suffered. Still, Week 13 presents plenty of great gambling opportunities for bettors looking to recover a bit of their bankroll. This week, while some home underdogs still look like they could be valuable, others are deceptive, including a tough matchup on Thursday night. It shouldn’t be mathematically possible for a person’s picks to be as bad as mine has been so far this NFL season. In a sense, my current losing streak is impressive – a statistical anomaly that will be studied by future generations. At least I will leave a legacy. If you took my advice from a few weeks ago and began fading my picks, you’re on an epic 26-12-2 run right now. Congratulations on your winnings. That said, I think this might be the week things finally turn around for me. Cold streaks always pass, and though this has been the toughest test of my gambling meddle thus far in my young life, … [Read more...] about NFL WEEK 13: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend

Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT Oct 8, 2018 The Ford Field press box has its own public-address announcer who keeps reporters informed about the yardage on each play, injuries and countless miscellany. On Sunday, that announcer mistakenly identified the Packers as the Patriots a few times. It was hard to blame him, since the two games felt similar in several ways. Two traditionally great teams. Two great quarterbacks. Two offenses hobbled by missing receivers. And two huge home wins the Lions will be able to point to the rest of the season. Packers, Patriots. Patriots, Packers. Any way you slice it, the Lions came up huge in both victories. A 26-10 pounding of the Patriots in Week 3 and an easy 31-23 win over the Packers on Sunday. The Lions are 2-3 as they head into the bye. If you had to pick the two biggest wins they could have asked for, they would be these two. I asked Lions safety Glover Quin what the two marquee victories says about his team. … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions: What do wins over Packers and Patriots mean long-term?

The event, called the “Nicotine Is Not Your Enemy Soirée,” was held at La Potinière, a posh restaurant with views of the city’s soaring Jet d’Eau fountain and the Alps beyond. There, guests enjoyed tapas and an open bar, passed around e-cigarette samples and listened to an industry advocate, Bernhard-Michael Mayer, scorn anti-vaping activists for insisting on proof that e-cigarettes aren’t harmful. It’s impossible, he said, to prove that even a piece of fruit is entirely harmless. To Dr. Mayer and the party sponsor — the … [Read more...] about Flashy Science Hub and Vaping Parties Fail to Win Friends at W.H.O. Tobacco Talks

Sifting through a green plastic bin, she shows off dark, wet soil teeming with wriggling red worms. “The worms break down the compost and it’s good soil and fertilizer for the plants,” she says. “It’s like poop.” A few steps away, her 10-year-old brother, Jimmy, is standing at a cinder-block wall, painting a mural of a tree that, he says, grows cats in a “parallel dimension.” Other children are helping to build a chicken coop, or just wandering among the gardens of lettuce, cilantro, and wood sorrel.Nothing about the scene this Tuesday morning in June looks anything like school — and that’s by … [Read more...] about What is unschooling?
