Here’s the cynical political reality behind Mitch McConnell bashing big business

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was blunt in his reaction to Major League Baseball’s decision to move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta this summer following the passage of a series of new election measures by Georgia elected officials.

“Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order,” warned McConnell, adding: “Businesses must not use economic blackmail to spread disinformation and push bad ideas that citizens reject at the ballot box.”

Texas State Representative Introduces Sports Betting Legalization Bill

Texas is one of the large, high-population states that could represent a profit windfall for online sports betting companies if it ever legalizes this type of gambling. Several casino and gambling enterprises have acquired fantasy sports platforms with users in New York, Texas, Florida, and California, to position themselves for eventual legalization there. Bally’s Corporation (NYSE:BALY) bought fantasy sports company Monkey Knife Fight and Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) make a “strategic investment” with an option to acquire the SuperDraft platform late last month, in part for this reason.

Fantasy Football: Post-draft half-point PPR mock features a zero-RB strategy plus a modified version

Now is the time you should be doing mock drafts. Do as many as you can between now and your real draft. It’s the best way to prepare, and you can do all kinds of mock drafts on CBS Sports right here. I love doing mock drafts. If I could, I would do a mock draft every day from the time the Super Bowl ended until kickoff of the following season. I’m a junkie, I admit it. I’m addicted to drafting. My boss thinks it’s work to put together these mock drafts, but I have him fooled. This is fun.

The new politics of climate change

A billionaire, a novelist and a professor all write a book about climate change. 

That may sound like the start of a joke but it is not, especially for philanthropist Bill Gates and author Jonathan Franzen. Their books have come out just as Michael E Mann, one of the world’s best known climate scientists, has published a book accusing each of abetting new forces of inactivism slowing efforts to tackle climate change.

Third stimulus check: Will you get a $1,400 check?

President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan would provide a third round of federal stimulus checks to millions of Americans. Yet while lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have expressed support for the proposal, there is less agreement on who should be eligible for the $1,400 direct payments.

Elliott, E. – Dal (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys (6/23) Advice: Ezekiel Elliott might not be the same elite Fantasy option he was at the start of his career, but he can still be among the best players at his position. And he’s worth drafting with a first-round pick in all formats. The best argument for Elliott is the way he performed when Dak Prescott was healthy. In the first five games of the season with Prescott, Elliott scored at least 20 PPR points in four of those outings. He had five games of 11-plus PPR points over his next 10 outings (he didn’t play in Week 15 because of a calf injury), and it was clear he missed Prescott and a competent offensive line, which was also banged up. With everyone healthy around Elliott, he should rebound and play at a high level again. The earliest you should draft Elliott is No. 5 overall in all leagues. (CBSSports.com)

10 Excellent Oscar–Winning Movies You Can Watch On Netflix

Few nights in Hollywood’s calendar year come close to the glitz and glamour of the Academy Awards. An Oscar statuette is a crowning achievement for anyone involved in the production of film, and those that garner one or more of the little gold boys win the right to label themselves an Academy Award–winning “insert title here” for the rest of history, not to mention the career-boosting potential that comes with it.

Brevin Jordan Highlights

Miami TE Brevin Jordan
6’3 245 lbs

Coming out of Bishop Gorman, Miami TE Brevin Jordan was one of the highest rated players at his position & so far he’s lived up to the hype. He may not score many touchdowns, but he was a top target whenever a play was needed. The Hurricanes have not had consistent QB play during his first 2 seasons, which has played a role as to why his stats aren’t as impressive as one would think when watching him play. Now that D’Eriq King has transferred to The U, Jordan & the rest of the Miami offense are expected to take a big step forward next season.

FORMER REP. KATIE HILL SUES EX FOR REVENGE PORN … Says It Forced Her to Resign

Former U.S. Congresswoman Katie Hill is taking her ex-husband to court, claiming he’s behind the leak of private photos and messages … which, she says, ultimately sunk her political career.

The ex-Rep. from California filed suit Tuesday against Kenny Heslep — who she recently divorced — for what she says was a years-long campaign of making her life miserable … up to and including the moment she stepped down from her post last year amid scandal.

Cowboys news: Tagging Dak Prescott twice and could Michael Gallup become trade bait

With the NFL franchise tag window opening Tuesday, the Cowboys can officially place the tag on Prescott for a second season. It has been highly expected Dallas will do so by the March 9 deadline, in hopes of coming to an agreement on a long-term deal that has eluded the two sides for the last two offseasons. NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport stated his belief, “The Cowboys do want to workout a long-term deal with Prescott before they have to tag him”.

Poke For The People

Great food, nice staff, and call ahead ordering available. The Keiki option is great for my toddler, the adults enjoyed their poke bowls, and the fish is fresh. When calling ahead, ask about their specials too. During the pandemic, the North Shore has been less populated with tourists. Though this may be nice for us locals, it does take away a giant portion of clientele from the eateries out here. So, please consider supporting local businesses!

Moore, D.J. – Car (WR)

D.J. Moore Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: There were just three receivers who finished with 93-plus yards in eight separate games last year. Calvin Ridley, Stefon Diggs, and… Moore. While the touchdowns were certainly lacking, there’s something to be said about this stat and how undervalued Moore may be due to the lack of touchdowns. It was his first year in the offense, while Robby Anderson was brought in because he knew the offense. With Curtis Samuel out of town, we might see Moore in the slot far more often, which wouldn’t be a bad thing. He’s now finished with 1,175-plus yards in back-to-back seasons. It’s only a matter of time before the touchdowns catch up. He’s a solid WR2 to roster, who just might have top-12 upside if the touchdowns start to show up. (FantasyPros.com)

Lulumahu Falls

This hike is hands down in my top 3 hikes on Oahu. It is a very easy beautiful hike. Once you enter the best and easiest route to go on is taking a right into the bamboo forest and following the road path way all the way to the end and going into the pathway, follow the colored tape!

I love this hike because it leads to an amazing waterfall that is absolutely beautiful! Its about a 2 hr hike there and back if yo dont stop to take any photos, but who wouldnt take photos of themselves in front of a 30-50 foot waterfall! Just make sure you always follow the colored tapes! there are so many trails, you could be going on a different path.
