An Obituary Printed in the London Times-Absolutely Dead Brilliant!!

first_img– Knowing when to come in out of the rain; – Why the early bird gets the worm; – Life isn’t always fair; – And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Common Sense was preceded in death, -by his parents, Truth and Trust,-by his wife, Discretion,-by his daughter, Responsibility,-and by his son, Reason. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. This Obituary Was Printed In The London Times-Absolutely Dead Brilliant!(This Article Was Sent To Us By Our Friend And Patriot Ronald Riecken Of Evansville) It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). He is survived by his 5 stepchildren;– I Know My Rights – I Want It Now – Someone Else Is To Blame – I’m A Victim– Pay me for Doing Nothinglast_img read more

House panel to review data security, NCUA budget bills today

first_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NAFCU-supported legislation to strengthen the protection of consumers’ financial data and to require more budget transparency at NCUA is scheduled for mark-up today by the full House Financial Services Committee.Ahead of today’s mark-up, NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler sent a letter to committee leaders yesterday asking their support of H.R. 2205, the “Data Security Act of 2015,” and H.R. 2287, the “National Credit Union Administration Budget Transparency Act.”Introduced by Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, and John Carney, D-Del., H.R. 2205, would establish uniform national standards for protecting consumer payment and personal information while recognizing credit unions’ compliance with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. A companion measure, S. 961, was introduced by Sens. Tom Carper, D-Del., and Roy Blunt, R-Mo.Under H.R. 2205, retailers would be held responsible for implementing security measures to protect consumer data. In a POLITICO article Monday, NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger is recognized for his statement last week praising House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling for holding today’s mark-up. Berger thanked Hensarling for his efforts to ensure “that all entities holding consumers’ personal financial data are held to the same standards credit unions are already accountable to,” the article stated. continue reading »last_img read more

Bauer leading Wisconsin in more ways than one

first_imgBRYANFAUST/HeraldphotoIn the midst of a stellar season, junior forward Sara Bauer continues to the lead the way for the Wisconsin women’s hockey team. The St. Catharines, Ontario native leads the team and the league in both total points and assists.Bauer, just as she was last season when she accumulated 55 points, continues to be a remarkable scoring threat. She has collected eighteen goals along with 21 assists for 39 points despite having missed a series to compete for Canada’s under-22 team. But off the ice, Bauer is one of the most shy, humble and soft-spoken people you’ll ever meet. It’s those characteristics, as well as her small words of advice and encouragement, that make her such a great leader to her teammates.”Well Sara has a really great knowledge of the game and a lot of love for the game,” team captain Sharon Cole said. “So she brings that knowledge and enthusiasm to the table, so to speak. I think she’s a really strong leader, kind of the ‘leader by example’ type.”Bauer certainly led by example this past weekend when the Badgers swept Ohio State. She finished the series with five points and was credited with three assists as well as the game winning goals in both games, one of which was her third shorthanded tally of the season.Her offensive prowess earned her the title of Offensive Player of the Week in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. It is already the third time this season that Bauer has won the award.”I didn’t play very well in the series before [against North Dakota],” Bauer said. “So I wanted to come out and get back into the swing of things against Ohio State. I had a lot of opportunities and it worked out well for me … I just try to go out and help my team win.”With just four more points, Bauer will pass former Badger Sis Paulsen for third on the all-time scoring list. Ironically, Paulsen recently became the interim manager for Bemidji State, who will play Wisconsin this weekend.When asked about it, Bauer said she did not know Paulsen had joined Bemidji State’s staff.Bauer needs 51 points by the end of next season to become the program’s all-time scorer. Given that she has more than an entire season to do it, she has a very good shot at taking the number one spot, barring injury.”She’s what we call … the whole package,” head coach Mark Johnson said. “She loves to go to school and she loves to play hockey, and she’s very good at both. She’s one of our major leaders on the ice and she’s almost a 4.0 student in the classroom. So it makes our job as coaches a lot easier … she’s a really easy person to deal with [because] she comes prepared for practice and comes ready to play in the games and she does the things she needs to do for class.”Bauer’s academic success is evident enough from just looking at her bio. She graduated high school as an honor roll student and earned an academic award of excellence. Here at UW, she is majoring in biology.Bauer is as versatile as she is talented. In addition to being the Badgers’ assistant captain, she is capable of playing on any spot on the offensive front, whether it be centering a line or holding things down on the wing.It’s that kind of quiet leadership, success and humbleness that her teammates gravitate towards and which the Badgers will be needing down the stretch of the WCHA season and into tournament play as UW tries to hold on to its spot atop the national rankings.last_img read more

Film Study: When Oklahoma State Uses Four Defensive Ends

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. What ISU Was DoingISU is lined up in a four-receiver spread package with three receivers (trips) to the strong side and the RB lined up to the left of the QB. This is a pass play, evidenced by the fact that the line is in its pass block two-point stance. The QB takes the snap and does a quick 5-step drop and the RB sells a pass block look before going out for a route.Although we can’t see the routes the WRs are running, we have a pretty good idea that all three on the trips side are running a route deep enough to get the first down if the pass was to be completed. The offensive line has the numbers advantage on the defensive line here, so it’s all about executing their blocking assignments to give the QB the time and space he needs to make a play.AdChoices广告What OSU Was DoingOSU is in a 4-1-6 Dime package. This is a fairly common defensive package, but I haven’t noticed the Pokes run it too many times this year. Then again, they haven’t had to. We have our four linemen, one linebacker (Jordan Burton) and six defensive backs. The two high safeties (Jordan Sterns and Tre Flowers) are 8-10 yards off the ball and are playing zone coverage. Flowers plays the deep zone and Sterns plays the hook zone.The other DBs are playing up close on their WRs. Often, you’ll see a defense be in a zone-heavy scheme on third and long, but on this play the CB’s are playing man coverage. When the ball is snapped, we see Burton mirror the RB, which lets us know that he is Burton’s man to cover.One of the more unique aspects of this formation is that all four defensive linemen are defensive ends. You have Jordan Brailford at RE, Jarrell Owens and Trace Clark at the defensive tackle positions, and Ogbah at LE.Why This Worked For OSUOSU was using this package with this particular personnel set for one reason: speed.• Take away the tackles and replace them with speedy ends.• Take out two linebackers—while leaving the fastest one—and bring in cornerbacks.All game long, the ISU QB had made plays with his legs. As a result, this allowed the QB to make some longer throws downfield, too. With it being third and eight, OSU knew ISU would throw the ball, so it was important to have the players out there who would be able to cover the receiver. But with the ISU QB posing the threat of being able to run it, it was also important that you had players that could quickly leave their coverage and close in on the QB to prevent the first down.The line’s job was solely to get to the quarterback. It was four OSU linemen to ISU’s five linemen. Ogbah fires off the ball when it’s snapped and just completely overpowers his blocker. There was no pre-snap disguises or stunts; it was just Ogbah being a physical freak and using his power and speed to get to the QB.last_img read more
