  • New administration rule would permit thousands of eagle deaths at wind farms

    The Obama administration is revising a federal rule that allows wind-energy companies to operate high-speed turbines for up to 30 years, even if means killing or injuring thousands of federally protected bald and golden eagles. Under the plan announced Wednesday, companies could kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles a year without penalty -- nearly four times the current limit. Golden eagles could only be killed if companies take steps to minimize the losses, for instance, by retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of electrocution. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe said the proposal will "provide a...

    It was inevitable, from the moment video cameras went up over Pittsburgh area bald eagle nests, that viewers would eventually see something disturbing. On Tuesday, eagles at the nest site in the Hays neighborhood brought a young cat into the nest to feed their two eaglets. "After reviewing the footage, we believe the cat was dead when it was brought to the nest," said Rachel Handel, spokeswoman for the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. "We don't know if it was a pet or feral. It's impossible to know if the cat was killed by the eagle or was a roadkill,...

Lana Rae Meisner, 63, was shot in the head and died on Sunday night at the Studio City home she shared with bassist husband Randy, 69, police said. The pair had been married for 20 years. Around an hour and a half before Randy called police to report his wife had been killed, Lana called 911 herself to report domestic abuse, according to TMZ. Despite couple's history, police have ruled the shooting an accident.

    No matter how many regulations are put in place, drones are cheap enough now that frequent misuse is becoming the norm. There's no good way of dealing with a dangerous drone: you can jam its radios to force it to autoland, or maybe try using an even bigger drone to capture it inside a giant net. In either of these cases, however, you run the risk of having the drone go completely out of control, which is even more dangerous. Or, you can be like the Dutch National Police, and train eagles to take down drones for you.

    Tim Tebow's NFL career was believed to be over before the Philadelphia Eagles signed him this offseason. After a brief reprieve, Philadelphia released the quarterback Saturday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Philly cut ties with the former Heisman Trophy winner after it shipped quarterback Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals in a trade for a seventh-round draft pick Friday, a deal reported by Schefter (via ESPN.com's Phil Sheridan). On the heels of that move, it seemed as though Tebow would make the team. He certainly made a strong case for himself in the...

Tebow remains, more than anything else, a curiosity in NFL circles. According to one team official in Philly, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner did "fine."

And you really don’t want to get in the way of the 6-2, 250-pound Tebow because he runs like it is “game on.” Tebow’s critics enjoy maligning his throwing mechanics, which still require extensive tweaking. They’ve totally missed the dimension he brought to the Denver Broncos, the skill that enabled him to register fourth-quarter comeback after fourth-quarter comeback and ultimately win a playoff game. Don’t underestimate the power of the mobile dimension...

Breaking down the mechanics of Tebow's throwing motion is a job for a quarterback's coach, not a beat reporter, but to the naked eye, nothing stands out about Tebow's throwing motion.

    In less than two months, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly might have gone from dunce to genius for signing Tim Tebow. The quarterback nobody wanted the last two years could be the very specialist the Eagles need to beat the NFL’s new extra-point rule. For the grand Kelly scheme to work, though, Tebow would have to be activated on game day not as the third quarterback—who can only be used if one of the first two go down—but as a special teams performer. Given Tebow’s size and reputation as a football player over a quarterback, that seems reasonable enough....

The tomb at Teotihuacan, the first major city built in the Americas, whose origins are one of history's great mysteries, also held the bound carcasses of eagles, dogs and other animals. "It is hard to believe that the ritual consisted of clean, symbolic performances -- it is most likely that the ceremony created a horrible scene of bloodshed with sacrificed people and animals," said Saburo Sugiyama,...

    [...] Tom House, a former journeyman major league pitcher who has turned into the country's leading sports biomechanics guru, had been working with Tebow for months. Every day for hours. This was after Tebow had been released by the Patriots two years ago and Tom Brady, who has become a protege of House's, recommended the former Broncos QB see House at USC, where he has an office above the third base line. [...] He was Nolan Ryan's coach, and Randy Johnson’s, and then he started working with Drew Brees at the beginning of his NFL career. Brees swears by him....

    Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez said he wasn't concerned that the team signed Tim Tebow, because the Eagles told him Tebow was just there to throw in camp. "We needed another guy to throw while Sam's (Bradford) still recovering. So that's the reason (for the signing), at least as explained to me," Sanchez said, per CSN Philadelphia. The Eagles signed Tebow on Monday. He hasn't played in the NFL since getting cut by the Patriots at the end of training camp prior to the 2013 season. He spent last year as a television analyst for the SEC Network
  • Jay Feely: Tim Tebow Is The ‘Worst Quarterback’ Ever, But Do The NFL Stats Agree?

    According to Jay Feely, Tim Tebow is a great man and a great competitor, but Feely still believes Tebow is the “worst quarterback” ever. But do Tebow’s stats agree with that assessment? In a related report by the Inquisitr, in the past some have claimed that Tebow was “blackballed” from the NFL due to Christian beliefs, not NFL stats. At the same time, Joe Theismann insists Tim “can’t throw the football” and referee Jim Daopoulus once used Tebow as an example of the uncatchable rule. Rush Limbaugh might agree that more men like Tebow are needed in the NFL, but...

    [...] If Belichick, the best coach in the NFL over the past 15 years, doesn't see an NFL quarterback in Tebow, then that would seem to settle the issue. Except that Kelly, who worked Tebow out last month, sees the skills and the physical presence and he can't help himself. It's not just about ego. There's a challenge in finding ways to utilize a player's talents, and Kelly enjoys that challenge. [...] The point is, Bradford is the presumed starter with Sanchez as the very capable No. 2 quarterback. But if Tebow is able to click in Kelly's offense --...

    The roster move the Eagles are expected to make Monday shot straight to the top of the publicity charts. A lot of people might have been Tebowing that it was not true, but it is. The Eagles are adding a Heisman Trophy winner to their crowded quarterback depth chart. Oregon's Marcus Mariota remains a long shot to be in Eagles green after the NFL draft. Tim Tebow, on the other hand, will be on the practice fields at the NovaCare Complex after he signs a one-year deal with the team Monday. He'll be one of five quarterbacks on the roster,...

    The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Tim Tebow to a one-year deal. The 27-year-old quarterback joins three other signal callers, Sam Bradford, Matt Barkley, and Mark Sanchez, likely competing for three roster spots. The line behind center in Philadelphia may be long. But it’s not terribly accomplished, allowing Tebow a solid chance to make the team and, unlike his try in New England, to enjoy an opportunity on the field should injuries or ineptitude result from Bradford or Sanchez starting. Bradford, the top man on the depth chart, endured injuries and struggled to live up to his potential in St. Louis...

Glazer also reported that the Eagles are convinced he has improved since the last time he was in the NFL after spending time with his quarterback coach Tom House.
