But the president ducked picking between possible 2016 Democratic presidential contenders Joe Biden and Hillary Rodham Clinton. “My job is not to trim my sails,” Obama said, confidently arguing for his ability to win over even some of his political rivals. He spoke on the eve of his presentation of a budget to Congress, where his proposals are certain to get a rough reception from the Republican majority.”One thing I’ve learned over the last six years is that when I tell the American people very clearly what direction I think the country should go in, sometimes people change their minds,” Obama said.

Pope’s alleged loan was larger than about 10 other such payments but paled in comparison to the largest loan, which was allegedly made for more than $52,000 to Jarell Martin, a forward for the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies who played for Louisiana State University at the time.Pope enrolled at SDSU in the fall of 2014, arriving on campus as the most heralded and highly rated recruit in the history of the Aztecs’ basketball program. Some pundits thought he would play only his freshman year before leaving for the NBA, but injuries have plagued the talented 6 foot 10 inch forward for much of his career.A sports information director from SDSU did not immediately respond to a request for comment today.It is unclear how or if the Yahoo Sports report will impact Pope’s eligibility, as the documents cited and published by Yahoo Sports are sealed in federal court and unavailable to SDSU and others who are not parties to the lawsuit.

I do feel more relaxed here than on the North Shore.

The Steelers should hope to be around five hundred halfway through the season, be improved by then, and try to rip off a few wins in the second half to make the playoffs. The good thing out of Sunday, all four teams in the AFC North loss, so everyone is dead even after one game.The old jinx remains for the Bills, they just can beat the Patriots. With EJ Manuel throwing two touchdown passes, the Bills were in a position to beat the Patriots but Tom Brady and company found a way to get a late field goal and beat the Bills again.

Their pass defense ranks 23rd in the league, the rushing offense ranks 28th, and they own the worst Plus/Minus turnover differential ( 5) of any of the teams herein. Arizona’s late Sunday afternoon rematch with Green Bay will undoubtedly prove closer than last week’s meaningless (for them) contest, however the ‘Cards are just 4 4 on their own turf and I don’t see that record improving against a sizzling Packer team that’s won seven of their last eight.

Redundancy is good for space travel, but not for clear writing. Phrases like “anticipate in advance,” “totally finished,” or “vital essentials” will drive your readers crazy and communicate very little. The same goes for stringing two or more synonyms together like “thoughts and ideas” or “actions and behaviour.” It makes readers wonder if you really meant to say two different things or just wanted to reinforce one word with a needless synonym..

Think he gave us some life, Devils coach John Hynes said.

The only similarity between hosting the Super Bowl and the draft will be how the league flexes its $9 billion muscles. But, in Chicago’s case, the appeal comes more in exposure than economic impact that could be in the tens of millions, according to one sports economist.
