    • Every NBA player who played from 2000-01 on receives some post-career benefits, and in MLB, all it takes is one day on an active roster to get lifetime coverage. But in the sport where they need it the most, NFL players (if they played three seasons) receive five years of healthcare after retirement, and then they’re cut off.
    • I feel like every labor story in the other three sports just serves to point out how strong the MLBPA is. It’s stunning.
    • When we spoke, Mr. LaRocca made it crystal clear that the uniforms were, at the end of the day, a way to make more money for the league and players.
    • Apparently NBA players are bitching about having sleeved jerseys, but the NBA is keeping them because they sell extremely well. I’ll tell you why they’re selling well: Because for any fan, the basketball jersey is, by far, the hardest jersey to pull off. It takes a lot of confidence to walk out into the world with bare shoulders and your fucking pit hair sticking out and repulsing everyone. NBA players look great in sleeveless jerseys because NBA players are world class athletes. The rest of us are not. You get really self-conscious really quickly when you’re standing there in a basketball jersey. You are already halfway to playing for the skins team, and playing for the skins team is TERRIFYING. If I’m an NBA fan and I have a choice between rocking the beater or a sleeved jersey, I’m going sleeves every time. It’s not even close.
    • Like, is there anyone out there who could tell I had a girls-in-cutoffs fetish just by seeing a mustard stain on my coat?
    • “Leper Messiah,” by Metallica. FUN FACT: This song is actually about Tim Tebow. I used to listen to this song in my room when I was a kid and when the solo came along I was full-on air guitaring and headbanging at full fury. And once in a while, my mom would come in to tell me it was juice time or something and I’d get all self-conscious because she saw me being a ROCK GOD. And whenever she closed the door after that, I never rocked quite as hard. I couldn’t shake the idea that she’d come busting in again. Parents are so lame.
    • I would eat that poutine, sir. “Peamale” sounds like some kind of new vegan-based gender.
    • For one, a player who appears to have been passed on by Baylor, TCU, and Texas Tech, as he camped at all three schools but didn’t receive an offer, as all three opted to take other tackles from the state of Texas.
    • Given the incredible need for at least one high school offensive tackle in this class, it’s hard to imagine what former offensive line coach Stacy Searels was thinking. As with the tight end position for so long, there just wasn’t a clear plan in place other than merely waiting.
    • And if the current coaching staff has anything to take away from the recent quarterback mismanagement at Texas that left the Horns with no other options other than Case McCoy last fall when David Ash was hurt, ensuring that there is an experienced player behind Ash this fall due to the possibility of continued concussion-related issues would definitely be an easy ad perhaps even necessary takeaway
    • Still, there’s no question that bringing in Wittek would push Swoopes closer to a possible transfer if he lost ground on the depth chart. And Swoopes still has much more upside than a player who has already proven ineffective in the college game.
    • Unless you’re a title-contending team, there’s nothing worse than a senior backup; said backup takes game snaps and practice time from a younger player. And if you’re a potential transfer with one year, even two years, of eligibility, do you walk into a first-year program with an established QB (and perhaps a health issue), or is going to a school with no upperclassmen at the QB position a better option?
    • One answer is that Google is comfortable rolling out evolving products and services, knowing that they will improve over time, often quickly and dramatically. The other is that Chrome simply has become more important to Google than Android.
    • Matt cites a theory by analyst Ben Thompson of Stratechery that Google considers Chrome its long-term play, with Android increasingly seen as a hedge.

  • @cshonea Thanks for not getting sick of it.

    “Our prayers for others flow more easily than those for ourselves. This shows we are made to live by charity.” #CSLewis

  • Just finished today. On my wall now but I don’t get to keep it long. “Perchance to Dream” 48X24″ acrylic on canvas.

    • The plagues were designed to contrast the power of Yahweh with the impotence of Egypt’s various gods.
    • The plagues of Egypt are also mentioned in the Quran (7,133–136).[3] According to the Book of Exodus, all the gods of Egypt will be judged through the tenth and final plague:
    • “Who is Yahweh, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go?”[5] and to indelibly impress the Israelites with Yahweh’s power as an object lesson for all time, which was also meant to become known “throughout the world”.[6][7]
    • If God triumphed over the gods of Egypt, a world power at that time, then the people of God would be strengthened in their faith, although they were a small people, and would not be tempted to follow the deities that God put to shame. Exodus portrays Yahweh explaining why he did not accomplish the freedom of the Israelites immediately:
    • I could have stretched forth My hand and stricken you [Pharaoh] and your people with pestilence, and you would have been effaced from the earth. Nevertheless I have spared you for this purpose: in order to show you My power and in order that My fame may resound throughout the world.
    • Historians assert that the plague stories are mythical, allegorical, and inspired by passed-down accounts of disconnected natural disasters.

    • ‘How long do you refuse to humble yourself before me? Release my people so that they may serve me!
    • Nothing green remained on the trees or on anything that grew in the fields throughout the whole land of Egypt.
    • But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not release the Israelites.
      • Why would the Lord harden one’s heart?
    • But the Israelites had light in the places where they lived.


    •  But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he was not willing to release them. 28 Pharaoh said to him, “Go from me! Watch out for yourself! Do not appear before me again, for when you see my face you will die!” 29 Moses said, “As you wish! I will not see your face again.”


    • Instruct the people that each man and each woman is to request from his or her neighbor items of silver and gold.”


    •  (Now the Lord granted the people favor with the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, respected by Pharaoh’s servants and by the Egyptian people.)
    • 10 So Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not release the Israelites from his land.
    • Matthew 20:1-28




      Workers in the Vineyard


    • So the last will be first, and the first last.”
      • Don’t compare your salvation to others. We each work out our own beliefs. Our own salvation. Because belief is salvation. Also – there is value and joy in being able to simply work the fields. Find that joy. 
    • Yet on the third day, he will be raised.”
    • Are you able to drink the cup I am about to drink?”
    • “You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right and at my left is not mine to give. Rather, it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.”
    • Instead whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
    • My God, I trust in you.
      Please do not let me be humiliated;
      do not let my enemies triumphantly rejoice over me!
    • Do not hold against me the sins of my youth or my rebellious acts!
      Because you are faithful to me, extend to me your favor, O Lord!
    •  May he show the humble what is right!
      May he teach the humble his way!
    •  For the sake of your reputation, O Lord,
      forgive my sin, because it is great.
    • Go to the ant, you sluggard;
      observe its ways and be wise!
      It has no commander,
      overseer, or ruler,
      yet it prepares its food in the summer;
      it gathers at the harvest what it will eat.
    • 11 and your poverty will come like a robber,
      and your need like an armed man.
    • This is going to be a ball-control offense that is methodical in moving down the field and relies on a physical, inside running game to punctuate drives.
    • 1) Explosiveness 2) Efficiency 3) Field Position 4) Finishing drives 5) Turnovers.
    • The key to those Texas squads’ success was the remarkable efficiency of Colt-to-Quan and Colt-to-Shipley and Texas’ jumbo, short-yardage package.
    • It’s easy to look back and remember Texas’ weak run game in the Colt era, or the brilliance of the Texas short passing game, but Cody Johnson’s 24 touchdowns were an enormous part of Texas’ offensive success in those two seasons.
    • The Wickline hire had the obvious aim of forming the TexasStrong identity as a program that can run the ball and impose its will on an opponent. The most basic concept for Texas in accomplishing that aim will be Inside Zone.
    • Wickline’s OSU OL were known for their great gasp of the play’s concepts and techniques and their ability to adapt after the snap.
    • The first priority for the play is getting “full coverage” on defensive linemen, meaning that they are enveloped by the OL and unable to get into the backfield or create negative plays.

      The next goal is displacement, either driving defenders backwards or sealing them out of the zone pathway and creating creases for the backs to exploit.

    • In particular, OSU had a massively effective QB draw game that Wickline will probably have to shelve until Texas’ depth at QB allows them to risk their signal callers’ health on designed runs.
    • With Lead Zone, you have zone blocking by the OL with the insertion of a fullback between the tackles. Ouch.
    • With a younger OL new to the Wickline school there may be a learning curve in 2014 but it’s possible that the future will hold a brutal Longhorn run game that echoes what the Crimson Tide has done in recent years.
    • Regardless, you can expect the Texas passing game to rely heavily on “spacing concepts” that allow the QB to make quick, timing throws that consistently net positive yardage.
    • With both of these concepts, timing and accuracy is essential. Let’s assume that Texas is able to plug Malcom Brown in at F, Daje Johnson at H, Shipley at Y, Sanders at Z, and Marcus Johnson at X.
    • Two more concepts that will feature into this ball-control approach are your constraint screen plays and “Levels.”
    • by trying to work in every situation, UCP worked in none of them.
    • The competition solicited new patterns from hundreds of camo designers, then whittled the entries down to four finalists. After four years (and millions of dollars), the Army seemed ready to pick a winner.

      • There are hundreds of camo designers?
    • Yet that hasn’t happened yet, either—and the tale grows stranger. Back in December, Congress introduced a bill that would block the Army entirely from introducing a new pattern this year.
    • Amidst accusations of general incompetence and bureaucratic red tape, there’s also the fact that warfare technology is rapidly evolving—and no one can predict quite how camo will need to adapt in the long term. The burgeoning field of military science that revolves around how our eyes interpret—or misinterpret—information—is still very young. And flinging billions of dollars at the problem hasn’t had the intended effect.
      • A cool field – how we misinterpret cues. Look to magicians.
    • Dual-tex used perfect squares of color to mimic two patterns at once: one smaller, and one larger, effective at multiple distances.
    • Why did pixels do a better job that traditional blobs? Because pixels are better at mimicking fractal patterns—which our eyes interpret as white noise. By looking less like figurative “nature,” digital camo gives our eyes nothing to fixate on.
    • As Cramer explained to me, digital camouflage attempts to use advanced optical tricks to confuse the brain into missing the body of a target, rather than simply “blending in” to the surrounding landscape. “You can’t just throw paint on a wall and call it camouflage,” he says. “We’re not necessarily trying to create randomness. We want the brain to interpret patterns as part of the background.”
    • All digital camo has two layers: a micropattern (the pixels) and a macropattern (the shapes the pixels form). If the scale of the macro blobs is too small—as they are with UCP—it triggers an optical phenomenon called “isoluminance,” rendering the carefully-constructed camo pattern into a light-colored mass. In other words, it makes it incredibly easy to spot targets from a distance. That was one of the biggest problems with UCP, as you can see.
    • And what about color? In 2004, when the army introduced UCP, it revealed that there was no black in the entire pattern. Black doesn’t occur in nature, officials explained. But Cramer completely disagrees. Black and brown are essential to mimic shadows. Cramer’s finalist pattern for the Improvement Effort includes something called “boundary luminance,” a thin black line along the macro and micropatterns that tricks the eye into seeing 3D shapes:
    • “If you don’t have at least a percentage of that on your camo, it will stand out and look very 2D because it doesn’t have that depth effect,” he explains. “It was a hard lesson learned.”
    • Just like a tiger’s stripes, which run perpendicular to their limbs, these visual “breaks” help to disguise the anatomy of a human target.
    • So it’s incredibly important that a uniform’s left and right sides don’t ever match.
    • I now see the top part of a human body.”
    • He is a pioneer of algorithmic camo design: Rather than relying on his own brain to design patterns, he writes programs that generate true geometric fractals. Fractals, like the classic example of a leaf, are mathematical patterns that repeat themselves at any scale.
    • Because they are scaleless, they hide objects that are as small as humans and as large as buildings.
    • The art of testing these patterns is almost more important than the design itself—and it’s a process Cramer knows well, because he’s helped the Army test patterns for nearly a decade. The process involves quizzing the Army’s best snipers using thousands of photographs.
    • For every conceivable environment, from deserts to marshes, and every conceivable weather event. Beyond environmental information, there are issues like range: a pattern must perform well close up as well as far away. According to Soldier Systems,
      • variation between photo performance and real-world 3d performance
    • In late August, a Special Forces team was unexpectedly removed from a mission in Libya, after terrorist groups stole dozens of guns and gadgets from US Army trucks. What does that have to do with camouflage? Everything, actually.
    • Along with machine guns and lasers, the raiders stole a gadget that could eventually do just as much damage: A special type of US Army night vision goggles that detect short-wave infrared light—aka the SWIR spectrum. At $45,000 a pop, these goggles let soldiers see at around 1 μm wavelength, where colors blend together into a white mass. In other words, they make camouflage completely useless. The only pairs in existence have rested safely in the hands of the U.S. Army, until now. Hence the pull out.
    • It’s almost as if the Army isn’t looking far enough into the future—where rapid prototyping and smart materials could generate new patterns and textures simultaneously as field conditions change.
    • I targeted universities that had a women’s soccer program and a good college for graphic design and advertising. I then built my segmentation list of the head coaches I would target. Once my list was built, I developed my email template which told them who I was, what scouting tournaments I would be at, why they should consider me, etc.
    • The same concepts apply with B2B email marketing: research and define target audience, build segmentation lists, develop content that engages the reader and encourages interaction, and eventually convince them that what you have to offer is what they need and should pay for
    • Email marketing is no longer the only tool marketers have and Marketing Automation applications are no longer a tool only large companies can afford.
    • Marketing Automation combines email marketing, lead scoring, lead capture and tracking, nurturing, event management, and social media marketing into one application. AKA: a marketers dream.
    • In our core CRM business we help companies streamline sales processes within their CRM application.
    • This year we are diving into Marketing Automation as an extension of our existing CRM business and professional services. For any of our customers that have considered implementing Marketing Automation, we have already taken major steps to evaluate the applications on the market and will help to implement, train, and support the application for your company.
    • I’d now like to introduce our new partner Salesfusion. Salesfusion is a Marketing Automation application with connectors to SugarCRM and several other CRM systems.
    • Far too many organizations spend more time on strategy than execution.  This is a mistake.  A good game plan outlines an end result, sure.  But it also includes all the sub-tasks that need to be completed.  This year, make sure that the strategy or project you decide on gets executed. 
    • fter two years of fairly hectic activity in the marketing automation space, it might be useful to ask where all the commotion has gotten us.
    • The merger activity of the last couple of years has left the biggest players with competent marketing suites that few could have engineered on their own, because marketing is a discipline that frankly requires different DNA than you typically find in sales and service.
    • A few numbers will give you the feeling of the report: 88 percent said they used email marketing; 81 percent said they already used data and analytics; 78 percent used social media marketing; 64 percent used display/banner ads; and 75 percent used landing pages.
    • What struck me is how well we have the outbound side of marketing covered and how much more work there is to do to analyze what’s going on in the market. To me, the data show that the tools have changed, but the process remains the same — and that’s the big point.
      • There is an opening for competitive intelligence
    • It’s another pile of paper worth picking up, because the authors make the point that the last thing to change during a transformation involving the application of new technologies to business is process. How we use new technologies is what gives them their lasting power; prior to that adjustment, you might be hitching a horse to a car.
    • only 37 percent of the respondents used lead scoring, and while 30 percent said they’d try it this year, a full third say they didn’t plan to use it. Lead scoring is one of those things that can materially improve the responses you get from your marketing effort, and it goes right to the heart of the process idea expressed by Brynjolfsson and McAfee.
    • consider re-examining your marketing processes.
    • Since this service is set-up as an API, it’s not incredibly user friendly for us non-programmer types. Thus the Microsoft Excel macro that FullContact gives away was great because it suddenly gave non-programmers access to the FullContact database.
    • Open the spreadsheet by clicking the link.
    • Next, set up a developer account with FullContact.
    • FullContact API only counts successful matches. The successful match rate according to FullContact is around 60% – meaning you can probably run close to 400 emails before you run out of queries since many will be returned empty
    • There is no “run” button! The ImportXML function runs automatically, which is usually a good thing.
    • So when you’re finished with the document, you should DELETE all the emails (or your API key) so as to not waste calls every time you open the sheet.
    • One thing to clarify for your readers – sometimes someone will query our API with an email address we haven’t seen before. When that happens, we have to go out and search the web for information on the person. This search takes a few minutes, so our system returns a “202″ response – which means “queued for search – try again later.”
    • This is why we built the Excel macro, incidentally – because it allows us automatically go back and try again whenever it gets a 202 response.
    • Since this service is set-up as an API, it’s not incredibly user friendly for us non-programmer types. Thus the Microsoft Excel macro that FullContact gives away was great because it suddenly gave non-programmers access to the FullContact database.
    • . And I’m not buying a computer, a copy of Windows, and a copy of Excel just to run this.
    • Macros are a pain. You have to install them to make sure they are operating correctly. Sometimes they don’t work. Sometimes they don’t run with your version of Excel. There are literally hundreds of reasons why one might not work. They are just a major inconvenience.
    • I wanted something I could give to someone who had zero background in Excel that would allow them to run the queries without any kind of training or help.
    • , I was able to create a spreadsheet that pulls in social profiles from FullContact using only the built-in ImportXML function within Google Spreadsheets. I then managed to use a mess of CONCATENATE, Xpath, SEARCH, and other random functions(in other words, I did fancy spreadsheet things) to display each of the main social media profiles: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google Plus.
    • Keep that evolution in mind when you hear that today, Asana launches Asana Calendars, adding a way to view tasks and projects in a handy-dandy calendar format that maps data. On the surface, it seems pretty tame, but Asana Calendars points the way towards using project data for work the same way Facebook uses personal data for play — and the future of collaboration.

  • See, the NCAA is just a typical non-profit, and the players are just volunteers. Like the Salvation Army, only with billions in TV money!

    • The Lord spoke to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Extend your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the canals, and over the ponds, and bring the frogs up over the land of Egypt.’” 6 So Aaron extended his hand over the waters of Egypt, and frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.
      • Moses trusted the Lord and overcame his fear
    • One other possibility mentioned is that the company could integrate an Airport Express into its Apple TV, allowing it to perform as a router as well as a set-top box. Apple took a similar approach with its Time Capsule, which acts as both a router and a backup hard drive. It should be noted that 9to5Mac is fairly non-committal on the features, describing them as “in testing.”
    • Apple prefers the “cross-pollination of ideas” that exists between OS X and iOS, even though Federighi has led all development efforts for both platforms since the iOS and OS X teams effectively fused in late 2012.
    • And so what’s more important is how you seamlessly move between them all. It’s not like this is a laptop person and that’s a tablet person. It doesn’t have to be that way.
    • Why would Apple create this product? Simple: To solidify the company’s standing as the preferred tablet for the enterprise—98% of Fortune 500 companies currently deploy iPads—while also appealing to small businesses and local merchants that use affordable mobile solutions like Square for processing customer payments.
    • Before iOS devices came along, Apple organized its Mac products in a quadrant system, as portables and desktops further divided into professional and consumer categories. Now that the iPhone and iPad are beginning to mature, it would make sense for Apple to begin categorizing iOS products this way, too.

  • Taylor Swift’s been bleating on about an old scarf for five minutes. Tom Waits could have killed a whole pirate navy twice over.

    • “A couple of poor nameless slobs”  


        The fact that the cat remains nameless for most of the film is reminiscent of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Holly Golightly is befriended by a similar ginger tom that she calls simply ‘Cat’, and he provides a metaphor for her own nomadic existence.

    • As Joel Coen explained at the Cannes Film Festival last May, “The film doesn’t really have a plot. That concerned us at one point; that’s why we threw the cat in.” But he lived to regret blithely giving a role to a cat.
    • This wily feline disappears and reappears at various points throughout Llewyn’s journey, serving as a cryptic, adorable narrative device.
    • I think the cat’s (or cats’) fate is connected in some way to the puzzling temporal relationship between those opening and closing scenes at the Gaslight, but after two viewings, I still haven’t figured out quite how — another of the many enchanting ambiguities of Inside Llewyn Davis.”
    • “For the remainder of Inside Llewyn Davis, this uncooperative animal seems to be leading Llewyn from one strange adventure to the next, like a beatnik Leopold Bloom on the trail of a feline Stephen Dedalus.
    • “For ostensible continuity, the brothers summon that darn cat to materialize or vanish at intervals. This is a device unworthy of the brothers’ usual ingenuity, though it does link Inside Llewyn Davis to another 1961 pop-cultural artifact: the film of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, in which the true soulmate of Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) is a cat named Cat.”
      • no.
    • Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest film — textured, odd and curious, not eager to give up its meaning on a first viewing — is a bleak but lovely little parable about the failure of a Greenwich Village folk singer in the weeks before Bob Dylan hits town and Everything Changes. For Llewyn Davis, pretty much Nothing Ever Changes.


    • Tiny things have a way of getting away from Llewyn: He has also lost track of a cat who bolted from another apartment where he was crashing. The cat’s name is Ulysses, which is the Coens’ clue that this film (like their “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”) has a few parallels to Homer.
    • If Homer’s Odyssey was the starting point for the Coens’ earlier feature O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), James Joyce’s Ulysses is a clear inspiration here. Llewyn Davis (played in engagingly forlorn and comic fashion by Oscar Isaac) is a Leopold Bloom-like wanderer. He locks himself out of an apartment early on and is left to roam the city.

    • For those of you who aren’t old enough to remember, those postcards that are still inserted in magazines used to be the primary source of inbound leads.
    • As you might imagine, by the time a salesperson followed up on those bingo leads, 4-6 weeks may have passed since the ad had piqued the reader’s interest. Often, they had completely forgotten about it.
    • First off, it wasn’t just magazines. Newspapers, infomercials, catalogs, coupons by mail, the phone book, and other direct mail campaigns were all popular and effective ways to generate inbound leads. Those leads were what kept salespeople going. Without them, they would have to make cold calls!
    • The oldest form of inbound is retail
    • . The only difference is that it’s face-to-face. The similarity is that even though a shopper chose to walk-in (raise their hand), when approached by a clerk (inbound marketer), the shopper may still say, “Just looking” (“Not ready yet”). So if it’s retail, postcards, or landing pages, inbound has been around for many, many years. It’s just a matter of whether you choose to make cold calls or focus on the organic, friendly tactics of inbound.

    • The night before I was using a VPN (I use BTGuard btw) and Kayak thought I was from Toronto, Canada. I guess if you are not from the departure city then flights are cheaper?
    • By giving a nitrogen vacancy a short blast of microwave radiation, it is put into a superposition of two states: the ground state and a low-lying state right next to it. After that, it’s hit with more laser light. If the nitrogen vacancy is in one state, it will emit a photon; otherwise it won’t. Mix the light from the two nitrogen vacancies at a beam splitter, and because you don’t know which vacancy emitted a photon, they become entangled.
    • That’s the most condensed version of an entanglement experiment that you will read. Essentially, the light is used to tell us which state we’re in, while the microwaves are used to set the state. By choosing just the right amount of microwave energy, there is exactly a 50/50 chance that the vacancy will end up in state one and an equal chance it will end up in state two. Because we don’t look, it behaves like it’s in both. When we shine light on the vacancy, we’re asking “are you in state one?” If it emits light, the answer is yes, if it doesn’t, the answer is no.
    • . If this sounds a bit like a hustler’s game, that’s because it is. The objects are entangled only because we choose not to look.
    • . You understand that tolerating a tube with no sedation implies rather severe problems with deep levels of the brain, as does the lack of adequate breathing despite stopping the sedatives.
