  1. Rivers vs Mia. Winston vs St Louis. 4 pts for passing td, 6 pt for rushing td. 1 point for 25 yards passing. 1 point for 10 yards rushing. Been struggling with this one rivers has been better for year but fell off past few weeks but Miami looks like a more favorable match up. Winston always a threat cause of his running but rams are good defensively. Leaning on rivers at this point
  2. Rams +3.5 Rams Moneyline +160 The Rams beat a Super Bowl caliber Seahawk team last year in St. Louis and this year looks like a potential down year for them especially with Chancellor out this game. The Rams strength by far is their Defensive Line and O-Line is Seahawks most glaring weakness. I think the fact this spread opened at -5 and has actually went to 3.5 says a lot about where the sharp money is going. Especially given how much the general public loves betting the Seahawks. I think this game establishes how wide open the NFC west will be this year especially with the huge decline and overhaul by the niners.
  3. That was legitimately awkward and not funny.
  4. Rain was forecasted, why not close the roof beforehand knowing that. Weirdo Brits
  5. Come on start 2nd set with a break Joker that will take all the momentum back
  6. Wow Joker had him twice at set point. I'm betting on Joker but you gotta hand it to Fed that was an incredible tiebreak. All he had to do was get one of those two points
  7. Both of them had the other 30-40 these past two games and blew it. Great game
  8. Come on joker keep it up
  9. Joker or Fed tomorrow? I know Fed's the feel good story and he did look great against Murray but the chances of putting up two perfect games in a row is tough. Joker is younger, hungrier and in a way this championship means more to him because he is still in his prime and would not look good for his legacy to lose to an out of his prime 34 year old (but still great) fed. Very rare to get Djokovic as such a small favorite. All over it but hoping for a great game in general. Djokovic -130
  10. Didn't think he'd be this dominant. The ###-picker Nadal looks shocked as well
  11. Andy Murray +245 vs Nadal is worth a shot. A lot of value, he has played just as well as Nadal during this tournament and his serve has been unstoppable.
  12. NSFW These people all need to die. this is disgusting beyond belief. crucifying and beheading christian children publically. This is a very tough link to view. just a warning.
  13. Wow. Islamic State fighters in Iraq are reportedly reserving a special kind of cruelty for women from minority religions. The militants are keeping hundreds of Yazidi, Christian, and Turkoman women in Mosul’s Badush prison, gang-raping some and selling others as brides for as low as $25, The Daily Beast reports. They’re even forcing local beauticians to come into the prison to dress the women up with makeup. Survivors said that many of those held in the prison were teenagers, some as young as 14. The women are given a choice: They can convert to the militant’s violent interpretation of Islam or face daily rape. Those who convert are reportedly sold off like cattle to Islamic State fighters and ordered to be submissive, women’s rights advocates in the region report. Their selling price ranges from $25 to $150. One mother of a captive woman said her daughter managed to hide a cell phone in the prison and has been describing horrific tales of being raped by dozens of men over a few hours. Other women said that children born out of rape have been ripped from their mothers’ arms, and never seen again. U.N. officials in Iraq have suggested that some 1,500 people from religious minorities may have been forced into sexual slavery. Pakhshan Zangana, a women’s rights advocate in the region, has been seeking private donations to try and buy the captured women back from the militants. “We have women and families calling in every day, the situation is getting desperate,” said Zangana. “It’s sick.” The Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS and ISIL, have been spreading their reign of terror and extremist interpretation of Islam throughout large swaths of Iraq for the past year. The Yazidi people have been prime targets because of their religious beliefs, which IS fighters interpret as devil worship. Yazidi traditions are an ancient blend of Islam, Christianity, and Persian Zoroastrianism, one that doesn’t believe in the concept of hell. The Yazidis have been careful to marry within their own communities for centuries — which means the rapes are breaking their bloodline. One mother told the Kurdish news organization Rudaw that her three daughters committed suicide by jumping off a cliff after they were raped by Islamic State militants. The mother of five victims expressed fear after the cellphone her daughter had smuggled into the prison stopped working. “We don’t want food or money, we just want our daughters back,” the mother said.
  14. great rebuttal by Andrew Sullivan to the Sam Harris "Why Don't I Criticize Israel" essay already posted. This is a crude summary – for there are qualifications on so many points that the piece is almost an explosion of nuance. In Sam’s view, Israel cannot be absolved from war crimes either; and should not even exist as a Jewish state. That last point is a pretty huge one – and it comes at the very start of the piece. But if Israel should not exist as a Jewish state, it should not exist at all. This is its core justification – and one of the issues the Israeli government has put at the center of any possible two-state solution. Get rid of the Jewishness of Israel … and you will soon have a Middle Eastern state pretty evenly divided between Jew and Arab and in which future immigration would easily tip the demographic balance toward Islam. And this is where, I’d argue, Sam’s argument begins to unravel almost as soon as it begins: because it is overwhelmingly an abstract statement of abstract principles which fails to account for history in all its particular twists and turns. So he ends up refusing to criticize a state he really doesn’t believe should exist and yet then goes on to criticize it quite potently. You can call that original if you want. But you might also call it incoherent.
  15. Amazing footage. Shows the tactics of Hamas up close. That reporter and the whole team have some brass balls. They hightailed it out of Gaza after filming this.
