    When he set out to do research in Iraq last June, Matthew Barber was not expecting a front-row seat for a humanitarian crisis. A doctoral student in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Barber intended to study Kurdish and pursue his interest in the Yazidis, a Kurdish-speaking religious minority group.   Instead, he witnessed the relentless pursuit of the Yazidis by the Islamic State, also known as IS or ISIS, particularly its deadly Aug. 3 attack on the Sinjar mountain region, a...

    By Dan Durkin- (CBS) Right tackle Jordan Mills is once again inactive for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. But the biggest news is Bucs linebacker Lavonte David being inactive. David is tied with Carolina’s Luke Kuechly for the most tackles in the league (116). Danny Lansanah will slide over to the weak-side and Orie Lemon will start in Lansanah’s place on the strong-side.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — As badly as things have gone recently for the Edmonton Oilers, the Chicago Blackhawks came to town and made it much worse. Marian Hossa had a goal and three assists, and Jonathan Toews scored twice as the Blackhawks routed the Oilers 7-1 on Saturday night. David Perron scored for the lone goal for the Oilers (6-13-2), losers of six in a row overall and seven straight at home. Edmonton has yet to beat a Western Conference opponent, dropping to 0-10-1. The Blackhawks took control with goals on their first two shots. “That’s about as long a game as I can…

    Liz Greiwe
    21 Nov 2014 | 7:49 pm
    There aren’t any clocks in Clarke’s. In fact, the entire diner feels like someone hit the pause button. The mauve, vinyl-covered booths are held together with duct tape that’s two shades too dark, and the fluorescent ceiling lights bathe the 24-hour restaurant in a cheap, yellow light. It’s impossible to take a good picture in there, but drunk 20-somethings try anyway. Everyone at Clarke’s seems like they’re on their way somewhere else. Tipsy friends stop in before or after a party. Couples bundled against the cold chat over heaping plates of eggs after a show. For a moment,…

    Tis almost the season to get out of my way. Or so it seems like it anyway. The stress that goes with pulling off the perfect Pinterest holiday sometimes can cause us to act almost Grinch-like in other circumstances — especially store parking lots. No matter how much I strategize in September to shop online, I am often out with the masses shopping late in the season with a fist full of coupons. By nature, crowded parking lots compel shoppers to devise plans. Some motorists wait to “win” a close parking spot. Others take extended time to serpentine through aisles searching for the perfect…
  • Gobbling up an organic Thanksgiving

    23 Nov 2014 | 1:00 am
    The first time Americans sat down together to share in the post-harvest feast of gratitude, the table was spread with items not commonly among what today is considered traditional fare. Turkey had its place, albeit not center stage — but the iconic green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and buttery pecan pie were nowhere to be seen. Historians have deduced the newly arrived Pilgrims and their native American neighbors those 393 years ago gorged on wild beasts that had spent their days seeking out food in field and flow: flame-roasted duck, goose, venison, eel, clams, cod, bass, and yes, wild…

The Knights lost an average of nearly 40 points with the graduation of Tyler Carlson (16 points), John Pruett (15 points) and four-year starting point guard Drew David (nine points) from last year’s 18-10 team that claimed a regional title with a 62-60 win over Marmion before bowing 76-61 in a sectional semifinal to Rockford Lutheran, which finished fourth in state in Class 3A.

    Pat McNamara has reason to smile. First, the Aurora Christian coach recently welcomed four starters back from last year’s 16-12 team. Three of them — junior R.D. Lutze and seniors Zack Singer and Wes Wolfe — all averaged double figures in scoring. The fourth, his son Pat, gained confidence as the season went on and did a nice job running the Eagles’ offense. Second, the development of senior Juwon Sisco and addition of several newcomers, headed by senior Jacolby Maxwell, junior Jeremiah Wright and freshman Jake Wolfe, give the Eagles much-needed depth. “We’ve got eight or nine…

    At least there was one bright spot during the Bulls' blowout loss in Portland. The last Friday before Thanksgiving in Portland, man. A year ago on that day, Derrick Rose tore his meniscus. The schedule makers decided to run it back in 2014 and all the Bulls got out of it was a blowout loss to the Trail Blazers and another scary injury to a key player. This time it was Taj Gibson. There weren't many silver linings in a 105-87 loss, but the performance of Nikola Mirotic was definitely one of them. Mirotic became the first rookie to post a 20-point double-double this season by finishing with 24…

No chance in Portland. On the second night of a back-to-back with three key rotation players out, the Bulls had the deck stacked against them against a well-rested Trail Blazers team on Friday night. Sure enough, Chicago was thoroughly dominated in its seventh straight loss in Portland, 105-87. Adding injury to insult, Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle in the third quarter and needed help off the floor…

    Rose, Gasol, and Kirk Hinrich all out for tonight. [Thanks to regui8er for today's game preview. Need some next week, btw... -yfbb] The season is still young, and while some new trends have emerged (defense, rebounding), the Bulls are still expected to be the class of the East and their record has been indicative of that. The Portland Trail Blazers have also carried over their success from last season into this year as they are currently sitting at 8-3, good for fourth in the hyper-brutal West and first in the Northwest Division. With the injuries to Westbrook and Durant, OKC may dig…
  • Today in "why Thibodeau struggles to put McDermott and Mirotic on the court"

    your friendly BullsBlogger
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:01 pm
    No, I didn't catch the loss against the Kings, but it sounded like the rookies again had some struggles, especially defensively. The above video, via Sactown Royalty, shows a lot of examples. And then there's a couple from Derrick Williams's baskets as well. Watching this I noticed one moment, and it's admittedly unfair to fixate on and isn't so much about defensive fundamentals but being irretrievably slow, but still: look how McDermott loses this footrace to Omri Casspi, who has the ball. (forgive the apparent time-travel at the end of this on my bad GIF-ing) And this observation seems to…

    On Evil Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah's big night on LA and much more. This week in the Bulls: Derrick Rose sat out three games with a hamstring injury and the Bulls went 1-2; Pau Gasol developed a calf injury out of nowhere, but maybe that's what happens when you play a 34-year-old big man 35 minutes a game; the Pacers beat the Bulls at home without Rodney Stuckey, David West, George Hill, C.J. Watson and Paul George; the Circus Trip started in style with a beatdown of the Clippers; Boogie and Noah got heated again and the Kings walked over the depleted for an easy win. The Bulls started their…

And to get the word out, they’ve released a series of terrific commercials. Two of the spots don’t feature NBA players (Manny Pacquiao and John Cena), but two other spots star NBA players and are genuinely great.

    It’s early in the NBA season, and Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose has been missing a lot of time with various ailments. Injuries happen, and unfortunately, some athletes are more prone to getting hurt than others.  Rose inflicted a bit of damage on himself when he recently made comments about missing games so that he won’t have to “experience soreness” in his life after basketball. Upon hearing this, the media and Internet roared in disapproval and raised some pointed questions about the toughness and commitment of the former league MVP. Rose’s comments shifted…

You are allowed to say Bull Durham, Field of Dreams or The Natural. Some people will say Major League, but those people are usually dismissed as someone who never grew up. But every time some one asks that question, you can generally predict that the answer that is going to come back is one of those three movies. I'm here to tell you that they're all wrong. The greatest baseball movie ever made is the 1976 movie The Bad News Bears. When I was…

The SEC is especially notorious for scheduling pushovers: Alabama plays Western Carolina, Auburn faces Samford, Florida vs. Eastern Kentucky, and so on. The rest of the country bemoans the SEC strategy of mapping out the season, but to us it just seems like smart football.

    As children, each moment was the only moment we were in. Our innate sense of being mindfully present allowed us to hone into our minds like it was a McDonalds playground. Things like painting and drawing flourished our imaginations and brought our inner selves excitedly to the surface. As adults, we sometimes become clouded with life’s ever-growing stresses, and that openness and ability to eagerly delve into our subconscious tends to fade. But what hides in that subconscious mind and what a little creativity could do, could be the key to ever-lasting happiness in life. Whether you see a…

You sleep in, stay up late, or maybe you get up at your normal time because that was your routine. You wake up, make breakfast, watch some TODAY Show, but the act of not going to work feels weird. Because THAT was your routine. But you don’t have a job to go to anymore. You file for unemployment and start job searching but it all feels like a weird dream. Did this really happen? Yes, it did.

  • Interesting Observations from Twitter’s Tweet Activity Dashboard

    Joe Mathieu
    22 Nov 2014 | 7:08 am
    With the wealth of data Twitter has been collecting from those of us who spend more time on their platform than anywhere else (*raises hand*), it’s only fair that the social network share some back.  I have been spending a little time as of late digging into Twitter’s Tweet Activity dashboard for a few of my clients. Besides for the insight provided on each tweet individually, I found it interesting that Twitter is sharing both promoted and non-promoted (“organic”) activity. Sure, it’s a given they’d want to provide advertisers with paid content…

    Better Call Saul anticipators, take note: AMC has just given the Breaking Bad spinoff a premiere date– February 8th (one week after this year’s Super Bowl). “Saul” and friends will occupy Breaking Bad‘s old 9pm Sunday timeslot. AMC also announced that the first week of Better Call Saul will be a two-fer: the show will air its second episode that Monday. While there’s still very little we know about this spinoff (besides for a brief teaser released a few months ago), AMC must like what they’ve seen thus far, as they’ve already green-lit the…

    Mozilla announced today that, following the expiration of their current contract, Yahoo will be replacing Google as the default search engine on Firefox. Image via Mozilla Is it time to re-think the pros & cons of that Bing/Yahoo SEM strategy many of you are currently not utilizing? Maybe. While Firefox was once considered the front-runner to challenge Internet Explorer’s then-dominating position, Google has done what Google is known to do, and since usurped both browsers’ positions at the top of the heap. As of last month, Firefox still commanded a 16% share of the US…
  • Gmail’s Inbox Didn’t Solve My Email Problem (Because I Don’t Have One)

    Joe Mathieu
    17 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Email has been part of my daily life for the last decade-plus. Between my eight years in digital marketing, four in college & 2 in grad school, email has been essential for communications. For more than half of that time, I’ve seen headlines on social media and news sites touting ‘solutions for your email problem’ and ‘ways to get to inbox zero’. And every time I do, I think to myself: “who out there has email problems??“. As far as #FirstWorldProblems are concerned, getting ‘too many emails’ has to be just below ‘one of the…

    Oh Facebook– is there any limit to your greed? Buried in the Facebook Newsroom yesterday (a Friday afternoon, no less), was an announcement by the social network that starting in January, organic reach for brands would be diminished, yet again.
