    • Black Widow is reportedly adding two batons that shock people, and the Hulk is getting the super-important addition of stretchy pants.
    • No, at this point he’s definitely more informed by who he was on Earth. The arc of the character, it’s a very human arc. It’s really based on who he was and what was taken from him as a kid.
    • It really means that this is a movie that has a talking raccoon in it, and it’s very important that it is not the Avengers with Bugs Bunny in the center of it. It’s really important that Rocket is a real creature, and I love him, and he is the heart of the movie. He’s the most representative of the Guardians in that he is this mangled beast that was taken and experimented on and torn apart and put back together, and we have to feel that character’s soul. If we feel that character’s soul and we know him and we love him, we see his plight and see why he is such an angry little guy, then the movie will work.

    • “Each of the five stadia will harness the power of the sun’s rays to provide a cool environment for players and fans by converting solar energy into electricity that will then be used to cool both fans and players at the stadia,” the bid proposed. “Along with the stadia, we plan to make the cooling technologies we’ve developed available to other countries in hot climates, so that they too can host major sporting events.”
    • On the status of wide receiver Meander: “My man is from here and I told him to try and get out here tonight and come by and say hello. Montrel has done a great job and is working hard. You always want to see guys redefine their body. That’s what he has done. He’s getting a lot stronger and a lot faster. We look for him to help us on special teams and also help us out at the wide receiver spot.”
    • State Sen. Jim Patrick, a lead sponsor of the Idaho legislation and a farmer himself, explained the rationale behind his bill: “It’s not designed to cover up animal cruelty, but we have to defend ourselves.”

    • That being said: $#@! him and whoever else in this town that charges $8 for a beer.
    • Things Patterson has done:
       
       1) Got rid of Mack Brown
       2) Hired Charlie Strong
       3) Hired Disney to help un$#@! our fan experience
       4) Making beer at games happen
       5) Setup what sounds like some really cool games for Basketball
       6) Davis is no longer primarily responsible for football academics (this may be Strong’s work)
       
       Yeah. What a terrible $#@!ing job less than a year on the job.
    • The belief that getting an early start to the day is virtuous is widely held. In fact, finds a forthcoming study, it’s so pervasive that managers rate workers who get an early start higher than those who get in and stay late, no matter how many hours they work in total or how well they do their jobs. And it could explain why other research has found that workers who have flexible schedules have less successful careers.
    • The study, from researchers at The University of Washington, highlighted at the Harvard Business Review, will be published later this year in the Journal of Applied Psychology. It finds support for the idea that managers have a “morning bias.” In other words, they buy into a common stereotype that leads them to confuse starting time with conscientiousness. They perceive employees who start later as less conscientious, and consequently less hard-working and disciplined, and that carries through to performance ratings.
