My own, equally worthless speculation is this: Bezos is a titanic businessman who swings for the fences, and he didn’t buy the Post to let it sit there and collect dust as if it were a wealthy guy’s image enhancing art collection. Bezos got into the media business for the same reason such other tech proprietors as Michael Bloomberg and Facebook co founder Chris Hughes (the owner of The New Republic) did: to make a difference and to win. Nobody knows how he could or will do that, because if anybody did know how to save the newspaper business, the Washington Post would not have been slowly (not so slowly, actually) dying under the Graham family’s devoted and honorable management.

The new stent is the size of a strand of hair. It’s tough to tell them apart side by side. But in the hands of Dr. Race is not a factor in the firing of NBA coaches, although white coaches with losing records had somewhat longer tenures before being fired than African American coaches with more losses than wins, a new study shows. The University of Michigan study looked at differences between firing of African American and white coaches in the National Basketball Association. The study found no difference in “technical efficiency” by race of coach, and found no evidence that there are differences in firings based on race, says lead researcher Rodney Fort, U M professor in the Division of Kinesiology..

He missed all of 2015 after tearing ligaments in his right knee late in training camp and struggled with injuries the past two seasons.Dallas drafted cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis in the second and third rounds last year.

That something is this, as harsh as it may seem for all the good Stoops has seemingly done to breathe life into one of the SEC perennial bottom feeders: If he had been overseeing a Florida State defense that surrendered two touchdowns in which his defensive backs twice failed to cover receivers from, say, Florida, Miami or Clemson in a one point loss, would he still be that coordinator on Monday morning?Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops talks to his team during a timeout during the second half of an NCAA college football game against Florida Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, in Lexington, Ky. Florida won the game 28 27.

More doesn t mean better anymore, Pinto said. It s the new wave thing. The old school thought was you were getting soft if you don t hit much.

Rascati also coached receivers at UT Martin (2014 15) and quarterbacks at Weber State (2012 13).

It takes a lot to knock Kohli’s equilibrium at the crease, but a combination of the two quick wickets then Buttler’s reflexes at point led him to sell Nair a dummy came closer than most scenarios. Yet it still needed a brilliant piece of opportunism to throw down the stumps. To Kohli’s credit he refocused and reached a 111 ball fifty as he and Ashwin responded with a counter attacking stand of 48 in 10 overs..

Chiarelli is a good general manager. McLellan is a good coach. Everybody involved has had success before. ALLEN PARK, Mich.

That Travis Hamonic’s lower body injury was a little more than just a tweak at Saturday’s practice. The Calgary Flames put him on injured reserve, retroactive to Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins meaning that he was injured at some point during the clash. The 27 year old defenceman had an MRI on Saturday..

Pat Shurmur: Shurmur has two years left on his deal, and if you think he’ll be back in 2013 I’ve argued that the Browns need stability and consistency, so I’d hate to see him and GM Tom Heckert go then I have a business opportunity in which you’d be interested: pet rocks. Shurmur, another first timer, probably makes $2 million a year, so were he to be fired, the coaches column would increase to $25 million. (Before Heckert).

Some players like to think they are direct but him? His purpose is as uncomplicated as that of a bullet leaving a gun. “My uncle used to get me to stand still and see how many keepy ups I could do but I’d get bored.

Felt like that was kind of the steppingstone of my journey of just working my way up the ranks, he said.

Jones was a force around the line of scrimmage against run and pass, particularly early in the game when the Browns first started rolling in Terrelle Pryor at quarterback. Jones also notched his first sack since Week 10 last season against the Eagles (another six stop performance)..

Ron Fritz, sports editor: The Ravens took advantage of mistakes by the Patriots, but were undone by their own mistakes. How could you leave Chris Hogan that wide open? How many bad decisions will Devin Hester Sr. Be allowed to make? How many times do you throw the ball two yards when you need 10 yards? This Ravens team is much improved from the beginning of the season, but not improved enough to make the playoffs.

3. New Orleans. Man cue the 30 for 30 dude “what if we told you that the New Orleans Saints had won seven straight. Don think anyone can get a customer, get a carrier to sign a contract until you can tell the carrier what the cost, here the deal, Mann said.

Had a team we thought we could win, but sometimes it doesn come together. Sports is an awesome thing. This is about life persevere, when things aren going your way, you have to figure out a way to get it done. OFFENSIVE LINE: The front five protecting Rodgers is about as sturdy as they come. The Packers were so impressed with undrafted free agent Lane Taylor first year as the starter at left guard last season that they gave him a contract extension Monday. But Green Bay can afford a long term injury to the starters after second stringers struggled at times in training camp.

I wrote an editorial in February titled, Dear Hillary, Do You Really Believe You Are “a Progressive?” The point of the piece was that not only were her positions clearly not progressive, in fact they were anathema to Progressives.

The delusion being as significant as the actual positions themselves..
