  1. 2019 Preview: Alabama Has Unfinished Business After Title Game Loss Quickly With Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy and a host of other standouts back, the Crimson Tide set the standard heading into 2019. By The SI Staff August 23, 2019 Our college football 2019 season preview issue is here, which means we're checking in with all 25 teams from SI's official preseason Top 25 ranking. What do you need to know about each of this year's top contenders, from top-ranked Alabama down to Stanford? We'll be rolling out scouting reports for each team over the next two weeks, all of which are collected here. Last up, it's No. 1 Alabama. THE BIG STORY The Crimson Tide made their fifth consecutive playoff last season, and yet they begin this campaign with something to prove after a 44–16 loss to Clemson in the title game. The defeat led to changes in Tuscaloosa: Coach Nick Saban overhauled his staff, bringing in seven new coaches. One thing that hasn't changed: QB Tua Tagovailoa is still under center. The Heisman finalist shredded the Crimson Tide record book last season, and with a trio of all-conference receivers returning, Tagovailoa is poised to put up even bigger numbers than he did in 2018. CAN'T MISS One reason Tagovailoa won't see a drop-off in performance: 6'1", 190-pound wideout Jerry Jeudy returns. The junior is a speedy, tightrope-walking, glue-handed freak. Jeudy caught a touchdown on every fifth reception last season and averaged nearly 20 yards per catch. There may not be a more dynamic playmaker in the country. KEY QUESTION The Tide has lost a whopping 12 starters to the NFL over the last two seasons. With all those losses, can the Tide defense continue its dominance? For this inexperienced unit it all begins with senior end Raekwon Davis—'Bama needs a big season from the future first-rounder. X-FACTOR The Alabama offensive line that was dominated by Clemson in the national championship game will have a much different look to start 2019: Three starters are in the NFL, and junior guard Deonte Brown, who was suspended during the playoff, will sit out the season's first four games. Alex Leatherwood moves from guard to left tackle but the key contributor could turn out be Evan Neal, a 6'7", 360-pound five-star recruit from the '19 class who's versatility has impressed: The behemoth could be a factor at guard or fill in at tackle. Neal's emergence will bolster the Tide's ground game, led by junior running back Najee Harris who had 783 yards and four TDs last year. OVER OR UNDER? Over 11.5 wins. The last time Alabama won fewer than 12 games? Back in 2013. The Tide should be double-digit favorites in every game this season, even against LSU at home. THE BOTTOM LINE Clemson may stake a claim as the top program in the country today, but only one team has made the CFP in all five years since its inception: Alabama. The Tide are still the standard.

  3. Coping with COPD Coping with COPD Learn to understand and manage common emotions. Living with COPD can be a challenge — especially as it becomes harder to catch your breath. You may have to give up some activities you previously enjoyed. Your family and friends might have a hard time adjusting to some of the changes. This can be challenging emotionally, too. It may help to be aware of your changing moods and to share your fears and feelings with your family, friends, health care team, and others who have COPD. Be aware of your changing moods Take note of any changes in your moods and how your relationships may change. A loss of energy can lead to a loss of interest and involvement. That may lead to a cycle of frustration, withdrawal from others and depression. Maintain connections. The first steps to breaking a negative emotional cycle are to notice and talk about it. Share your feelings and concerns about COPD with your family and friends. A strong support system is important and can help you cope. Recognize anxiety or depression. Living with COPD can lead to anxiety and depression. If feelings of worry, fear or sadness don't go away after a few weeks or get in the way of your ability to enjoy life, be sure to tell your doctor. Professional counseling, medications or other treatments may help you. And managing anxiety and depression may also help you better manage your COPD. Educate your family and friends If you don't often have attacks of breathlessness or fits of coughing, you may not look ill. So people may not understand why you no longer do some activities or why you seem less engaged. They may think that you just aren't interested in them anymore. If you tell other people about your COPD, they may better accept the fact that your activity level may change. However, try not to make too many lifestyle changes at once. A big change in your lifestyle may lead to a cycle of frustration, depression and withdrawal from others. Consider a support group You may find it helpful to connect with a COPD support group, where you and others with COPD can share symptoms, challenges and coping tips. An online support group might be available at any time of day. Support groups that meet in person can be a good excuse to leave the house.
  4. The Second World War: The Battle of Midway By attacking Midway atoll, at the far western end of the Hawaiian chain, the Japanese hoped to lure the US Pacific Fleet into the open sea and destroy it. Instead, due to superb US intelligence and costly Japanese tactical errors, the attack marked the destruction of the Japanese Fleet and the end of Tokyo’s supremacy in the Pacific Ocean. This super film portrays the momentous battle in a day-by-day account.
  5. This is part one of a planned two-part video covering Operation MI. As you can see I spent a considerable amount of time covering Nagumo’s Dilemma. To me it's one of most striking examples of how tough it can be for a commander to make a decision based on the information at hand. I found that to be the most interesting aspect of the battle. I don’t have a Patreon but if you want to show appreciation for my work feel free to donate. » patreon -https://www.paypal.me/montemayorytcha... Corrections: "Strength" , "Auxiliary", and "unknown" are misspelled in the video. At 22:55 I should have stated “North of Midway” instead of Northeast of Midway. The illustration shows a 10 degree 240 nm from midway location. Not so Northeast as I audibly stated. At 23:43 I should have stated 79 aircraft instead of 78 and I should have displayed 35 instead of 34 torpedo bombers. the “mistake” came about because sources still differ on whether there were 27 or 26 Carrier attack planes (Kates). If it was 27 it would have been 79 Planes. if it was 26 it would have been 78. During the recording I somehow mixed up the numbers. Additional Notes: notice that the carriers started off the battle in a box formation. This provided further mutual support for their rather weak AA fire. however, due to the incessant air attacks from VT-8, VT-6 and VT-3, the carriers were never able to reform in a box formation, instead they were in a ragged line which further worsened their AA capabilities. -----------------------------------------Spoiler Below regarding Nagumo's Dilemma--------------------------------------------- So what was the answer to Nagumo’s Dilemma? “Taking all together, and admittedly operating with the benefit of hindsight, the “right” answer to Nagumo’s conundrum probably should have emphasized maneuver, offensive speed in preference to mass, and passive damage control. With fifteen minutes in which to act, he didn’t really have time to implement anything terribly fancy. But he could have helped himself immensely by immediately spotting every strike airplane in his hangars, whether they were armed or not, and launching them at the Americans. The sixty-four armed aircraft he had in had were perfectly capable of doing enormous damage to his enemy. And by emptying his hangars, he removed the single greatest danger to his carriers --- the presence of fueled and armed aircraft within them.” Parshall, Jonathan B.; Tully, Anthony P.: Shattered Sword.

  8. Mr.Pot A Toes'_ SWEET_POTATO_PECAN_COOKIES_ Sweet Potato Pecan Pot Cookies Dosage Note: I used a low-potency cannabis coconut oil when re-creating this recipe. Your results will vary depending on the potency of your infused oil. My cannacoconut oil tested at 2.16 mg of THC per gram, so I was able to figure that the 1/2 cup of coconut oil (105 grams) called for in this recipe contained about 226.8 milligrams of THC. My batch yielded 39 small cookies that would have measured about 5 - 6 mg of THC each. Hey, it's healthy, so I can eat more than one, right? No, please, always experiment before getting in over your head! Sweet Potato Pecan Pot Cookies Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups almond flour 1/2 cup shredded coconut 2 tbsp coconut flour 1 egg 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup maple syrup 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup raw pecans 1/2 cup organic canna coconut oil 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice 1/2 cup sweet potato puree 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract Preheat oven to 325°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a small mixing bowl, combine eggs, maple syrup, vanilla extract and melted canna coconut oil with a hand mixer. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. On a parchment lined baking sheet, drop tablespoon-sized amounts of cookie batter. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool and serve.
  9. Weatherman Mike's_Braised Groundhog Recipe OUULALA Weatherman Mike's_Braised Groundhog Recipe Braised Groundhog Recipe Braised in mustard and white wine: A groundhog?! I’ve learned a few things along the way. Like, for instance, groundhogs have musk glands in their armpits. YOU MUST REMOVE THESE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO THROW UP FROM THE STINK OF BRAISED MUSK GLANDS AS THEY BOIL AWAY! If you have difficulty finding (or shooting) groundhog, you can substitute two rabbits or six pounds of chicken. Braised Groundhog Recipe Serving Size: 6 servings Ingredients 1 (5 to 6 pound) groundhog, cut into 6 serving pieces 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 3/4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth 2 medium onions, chopped 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped 3/4 stick unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon size pieces 2 1/2 cups dry white wine 1/3 cup Dijon mustard 1/4 cup whole grain mustard Directions Rinse the groundhog pieces, remove any fat, and cut out the glands underneath the front legs and armpits, then pat the meat dry. Season with 1 tablespoon Kosher salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet, then brown the meat, in batches. This will take about 5 minutes per batch. Transfer the meat to a medium heavy pot. Reserve the skillet. Add the broth to the pot. Pour off any fat from skillet, then add the onions, garlic, thyme, and 3 tablespoons butter and cook over medium heat, stirring and scraping up any brown bits, until onions are softened. This will take about 5 minutes. Add the wine and boil until the liquid is reduced by half. This will take about 8 minutes. Pour the mixture over the groundhog. Cover the pot and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Braise the groundhog until it is very tender. This will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Transfer the groundhog to a serving dish and keep warm. Bring the liquid in the pot to a boil and reduce it to about 3 cups. This will take about 10 minutes. Whisk in the mustards. Remove the pan from the heat and add the remaining 3 tablespoons butter, swirling the pot until incorporated. Season sauce with salt and pepper and pour over the groundhog. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This site does not take responsibility for the information available in this post nor does this website condone kkk schinanagans or piracy.
