Welcome back to the NFL Fun Power Rankings, where we value excitement and intrigue over wins and losses. This list is all about working out which NFL teams are worthy of your busy eyes, and which deserve to be rolled up in a carpet, set on fire, loaded into a big rocket and blasted off into the sun. There were quite a few movers and shakers in week 11 - a week which saw the Chiefs and Rams play out one of the greatest games in NFL history, Lamar Jackson make his first career start, and the Raiders win a football game. I know, anything really is possible. Here's how we stand heading into Thanksgiving, aka the day which officially marks the beginning of the 'business end' of the season. 32. New York Jets (down 1) Good news: For the first time in weeks the Jets weren't utterly abject on Sunday. Bad news: That's only because they were on a bye. All the early season optimism has faded from New Jersey, and if you watch their last few performances back it's hard to see how they've got to … [Read more...] about NFL Fun Power Rankings, week 11: Where do Rams and Chiefs stand after Monday night’s record-breaking showdown?

Michelle R. Martinelli Published 1:05 p.m. UTC Jul 19, 2018 Danica Patrick hosted the 2018 ESPYS on Wednesday night in Los Angeles, opening the show with a seven-minute monologue that received mixed reviews from the internet. She nailed several jokes, but her comedic timing was a little off on others and led to a few awkward moments. And it probably didn't help that the audience didn't seem settled in their seats and fully into the routine. Prior to the show, Patrick told For The Win she prepped by practicing her monologue to ensure the jokes were delivered in her voice. She took plenty of shots at other athletes - including LeBron James, Tiger Woods and the U.S. men's soccer team - and said that when she was often the target of jokes, she took it as a compliment because she was "important enough" to be thought of. "I loved the creative process and coming up with ideas and jokes and putting in my two cents there, along with the help of a dozen highly qualified writers," Patrick … [Read more...] about 12 of Danica Patrick’s best, worst jokes from 2018 ESPYS monologue
Michael B. Sauter, Evan Comen, Thomas C. Frohlich and Samuel Stebbins 24/7 Wall Street Published 12:15 p.m. UTC Jul 11, 2018 Some product launches can be spectacular failures, and Google Glass, an eyeglasses shaped head-mounted device with smartphone capabilities, failed in such a manner several years ago. It was meant to be the first piece of technology to connect the typical consumer to augmented reality. Google continues to attempt to find a place for the product, but its original launch was a definitive failure. In 2017, the internet giant announced the relaunch of the device to target to businesses rather than the general public, but whatever happens, it will be adopted by a meaningfully narrower audience. Just like success, failure is part of doing business. Entrepreneurs and large companies often take big risks, hoping for success but not always achieving it. These failures take many different forms. When a product doesn’t sell, when it is recalled or discontinued, … [Read more...] about Historic blunders: 50 worst product flops of all time
Manchester City – the Centurions. But Martin, how do you expect Liverpool to make up a 25-point gap next season when City will also strengthen? Liverpool have typically lost points in the easier games in the last few years, they must address that. And they need to win nine more games next season. Big ask. Crossie, Manchester. Don’t get your hopes up, everybody. It’s not all like this. There’s one of those big-club p***ing contests coming – you know the kind, my club’s better than your club, where’s your double/treble/five European Cups/unbeaten season – and some people still appear to have Jonjo Shelvey confused with Xavi, but Crossie this is an intelligent question and deserves a logical reply. I agree, 25 points is huge. But Liverpool will feel they have the beating of Manchester City, home and away, after this season. So take three points from City’s 100 and add them to Liverpool’s 75. Now we’re playing 97 … [Read more...] about 100 points, 106 goals… and so many sour grapes towards Man City
After White House chief of staff John Kelly pressured President Donald Trump last fall to install his top deputy, Kirstjen Nielsen, atop the Department of Homeland Security, the president lost his temper when conservative allies argued she wasn't sufficiently hardline on immigration. "You didn't tell me she was a [expletive] George W. Bush person," Trump growled. After Kelly told Fox News Channel's Bret Baier in a January interview that Trump's immigration views had not been "fully informed" during the campaign and had since "evolved," the president berated Kelly in the Oval Office - his shouts so loud they could be heard through the doors. And just 11 days ago, Kelly grew so frustrated on the day that Trump fired Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin that Nielsen and Defense Secretary James Mattis both tried to calm him down and offer pep talks, according to three people with knowledge of the incident. "I'm out of here, guys," Kelly said - comments some interpreted as a … [Read more...] about The inside story of how Trump’s Chief of Staff lost his power
