NFL.com: Cam Newton primed to regress

15 July 2014 - 09:04 PM

This night has all the makings for a huddle suicide watch so why not! Go scream into a pillow or turn up some Jack Daniels and feel better.

As a huge Newton fan and believer, this season sets up as worrisome. The weapons around Newton are miserable; the Panthers have the worst wide receiving crew in the league, even if rookie Kelvin Benjamin is effective. The offensive line lost two effective starters in Travelle Wharton and Jordan Gross. The Panthers are counting on their defense and running game to carry them, but it's hard to imagine the defense playing better in a division where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons should improve.

In short: We expect Newton to do his part. He's a young, improving franchise quarterback. But he's probably going to get blamed when the team around him sags.


Nevermind that these are actually some valid points.

Hardy found guilty

15 July 2014 - 08:03 PM

Guilty of assault of female and communicating threats.

60 days suspended sentence, 18 months probation, court ordered program.

I think the judge had her mind made up from the beginning. Did not take into account holder's drug use at all. Hardy stands a much fairer decision with a jury.

Comcast customer service yall

15 July 2014 - 09:59 AM

So this couple tries to cancel their Comcast service and end up with an 18 minute ordeal you have to hear to believe.


After the recording went public, a Comcast representative told Mashable that they were investigating the situation. "This isn't how our customer service representatives are trained to operate."







The customer started recording the call about 10 minutes in.




Republicans to potential cost economy 700k jobs

03 July 2014 - 08:29 AM

Twin crises are set to interrupt the construction boom that takes place each year during the warmer weather as states and cities set out to repair America's aging and ailing infrastructure. The most pressing is the drying up of the Highway Trust Fund, which the Department of Transportation predicts will be depleted by late August. As a result, the funding that states get from the federal government for highway projects - about 45 percent - will start to shrink.


Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx warned reporters Monday that letting the account expire could lead to 700,000 Americans losing jobs in road work, bridge-building and transit maintenance.


"All of these types of projects may be delayed or shut down completely -- which means freight won't move, which means trade will slow, which means businesses won't hire. And, by the way, your morning commute will be longer because the roads you're driving on will crumble and no one will show up to fix them," Foxx said.


"This may be the most dire moment the American transportation system has faced in decades," Foxx said.

The looming funding cliff couldn't come at a worse time. Last year, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the nation's public infrastructure a D+ on their annual report card and estimated that $3.6 trillion in investment will be needed by 2020.






"It's not crazy, its not socialism, its not the imperial presidency. No laws are broken. We're just building roads and bridges like we've been doing for the last, I don't know, 50, 100 years," Mr. Obama said. "But so far House Republicans have refused to act on this idea. I haven't heard a good reason why they haven't acted. Its not like they've been busy with other stuff. No seriously. I mean they're not doing anything. Why don't they do this?"

"Republican obstruction is not just some abstract political stunt. It has real and direct consequences for middle-class families all across the country," the president added. http://www.cbsnews.c...fund-shortfall/





“That’d be like Congress threatening to lay off the entire population of Denver or Seattle or Boston,” Obama said. “That’s a lot of people.”

Doom and gloom: Economy gains 288,000 in June

03 July 2014 - 08:00 AM



Biggest news story this morning, but Foxnews hasn't put it on their website yet.  Must be looking for some way to add a negative twist, because ya know, AMERICA.



The labor market continued to gain momentum and defy a mixed economy in June as employers added 288,000 jobs, the Labor Department said Thursday.


The unemployment rate fell to 6.1% vs. 6.3% in May.


Economists had estimated that 215,000 jobs were added last month.


The economy has now gained 200,000 jobs a month for the past five months — the first such stretch since September 1999-January 2000.


in June, businesses added 262,000 jobs, with professional and business services, retail and healthcare leading the broad-based gains. Federal, state and local governments added 26,000.


Also encouraging: Job gains for April and May were revised up by a total 29,000. April's increase was revised to 304,000 from 282,000 and May's to 224,000 from 217,000. April's total marks the first time monthly job gains topped 300,000 since January 2012.


Several economists expected continued strong employment advances after private payroll processor ADP released its own survey Wednesday that showed businesses added 281,000 jobs in June – the most since November 2012.

Also, initial jobless claims have fallen to prerecession levels and surveys of service-sector employment are indicating a pickup in hiring.
