| Tech Board|| Touchscreen Laptop/tablet recommendations - Santa Clause on 5/19/14 at 9:48 pm|
Does anyone have recommendations for a quality touchscreen laptop/tablet? I'm thinking about purchasing one as my second computer for work/school (I currently have an old Macbook and Ipad in pretty good shape).
I'm in graduate school for economics and I've noticed some fellow students have device...

[quote]Yes, that's been the trend as of late. I am skeptical though if playing in more meaningful games leads to more concussions. Maybe a batter comparison would be to compare the 4 weeks of the playoffs vs the preseason?
As am I. I'm having more trouble getting playoff and postseason ...
| More Sports Board|| re: NFL schedule: divisional vs. interdivisional matchups - Santa Clause on 4/27/14 at 1:43 pm|
so basically there's consistently more divisional matchups at the end of the season now? (though there might be some exceptions)...
| More Sports Board|| NFL schedule: divisional vs. interdivisional matchups - Santa Clause on 4/27/14 at 1:11 pm|
Does anyone know whether there's a certain formula for which weeks NFL teams play divisional games as opposes to non-divisional and interdivisional games?
I ask because I'm doing some research on NFL concussions using weekly totals. One (suspect) argument for why concussion rates might rise over ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Fantasy Football Injury Reports - Santa Clause on 4/24/14 at 11:07 am|
I'm collecting data for an econometric paper on nfl injuries. Anyone know the best place to get weekly information about players added to the IR? As data intensive as fantasy football is, I imagine there's probably some way this is all reported.
Thanks for the help...

Sims is a stud. He'll get an LSU offer. Might be a Tasmin Mitchell type of tweener between 4 and 5 eventually, but he's impressive.
Mays was probably 5'11 and skinny as a freshman. This year, he's bulked up and is playing above the rim, probably closer to 6'2.
His court vision, ball handling,...

So I'd have to get the full blown version, not just the app, to get all those features, right? Not sure that's possible for an iPad, but let me know if so. Seems like the version I currently have is a scaled down version...

Thanks, I'll look into it. I've downloaded the OneNote app for ipads and don't see where it enables you to freehand notes. I also don't currently have OneNote on my laptop so I assume I'd have to download it to share files.
Basically, what devices have Microsoft Word on a touchscreen device that ...

I'm looking to find some app or device that enables me to go from typing out notes to drawing graphs (freehand, or using a compatible pen) for my economics classes. Ideally I'd like it to be word compatible so I can open the document on my laptop as well as my tablet.
FWIW, I have a Macbook lapto...

I disagree with those who think Amy Adams stole the show. Her accent very inconsistent. In some scenes I honestly couldn't tell what she was trying to do.
Very good movie. Solid 8-8.5 out of ten. I'm not usually a huge Bradley Cooper fan, but I thought this was among his best performances. ...

If you include the Sugar Bowl, I believe Reed damn near eclipsed 2,000.

Let's not overreact about the (admittedly overdone) cliffhanger. This is the same show where half of Gus walked out of a room, adjusted his tie, then died. We got over it. For all we know, Hank and Gomez are dead behind the car. Hank almost assuredly has to die; the final phone call...

There are some really great acting performances sprinkled throughout this show. Dominic West is incredible. Omar is the man. Bubbles is Bubbles. Idris ...

Thanks for the insights.
BTW, the McNulty = a**hole comment was a joking reference to the fact that his name is almost synonymous with a**hole throughout the show thusfar. In fact, I don't think his name has ever been used without the modifier "A**hole"...

Just got around to watching this series (I know I know, "what took you so long?"). I'm apprx 1.5 seasons into it and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm still a ways short of throwing it atop my "greatest show of all time" list, which seems to be damn near the consensus of boards like these.
