  • 10 takeaways: Is Big 12 locked out of College Football Playoff after Saturday?

    Yahoo ^ | October 7, 2018 | Pat Forde and Pete Thamel
    The Big 12 may not have a bigger stage the rest of the regular season than it did on Saturday afternoon. The Red River Showdown actually resembled a Shootout, the old name before it got changed in the name of political correctness. It was quintessential Big 12 – 93 points, 1,033 yards and a breathtaking ending when Texas won, 48-45, on a field goal with nine seconds left. Texas pulling the upset of the No. 7 Sooners, however entertaining, may have been the worst result for the long-term playoff viability of the Big 12. The Big 12 team best positioned...

    2017 FBI report Maine: 121 incidents of violent crime per 100,000 residents. Vermont: 165.8 incidents per 100,000. New Hampshire: 198.7 incidents per 100,000 New Hampshire is once again in an enviable spot following the release of the FBI’s latest crime rate data. The Granite State had the third-lowest rate of violent crime in 2017 — 198.7 incidents per 100,000 residents — trailing only Vermont (165.8) and Maine (121). Violent crime was down slightly nationwide, and it was the second year in a row that New Hampshire’s rate decreased... That disparity has long been the case — without any clear explanation...

The “Deep State” has literally thrown everything including the kitchen sink at you, but, thankfully, you are still standing. First it was the betrayal from a woman who you made into a reality TV star, Omarosa Manigault Newman. Then it was the dual blow of the Michael Cohen guilty plea and allegations that...

    Because Donald Trump is, well, Donald Trump, a lot of attention has been paid to his hostile takeover of the Republican Party -- and how he continues to consolidate that power. What that focus on how Trump killed the old -- and by that we mean the 2012 -- version of the Republican Party misses is how much the Democratic Party has evolved -- and is evolving -- in its own way. Like Republicans, that change sped up -- rapidly -- in 2016. It was led by an unlikely figure -- Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. To say Sanders was...

    The American Left is stoking hatred and it’s tearing us apart. Our media is guilty of not only of failing to shame those responsible, in many cases they egg them on, giving them a platform. The volume of irrational hatred spewing into our ether is extremely unhealthy, even dangerous for our republic and the broader American culture.

    Americans have tossed former President Bill Clinton aside and now say that former President Barack Obama was the “best” president of their lifetime -- by a huge gap of 31 percent to 13 percent. But a new Pew Research Center survey of 2,002 adults found that President Trump topped Obama as the best president of their lifetime at this stage of his presidency.

    ByBRAD CRAWFORD Jul 9, 8:02 AM Which college football teams are the most complete and talent-rich heading into the 2018 season? Preseason magazine guru Phil Steele, who studies rosters and interviews coaches 12 months out of the year, believes he has an idea. He has compiled his annual 'Preseason Top 40' rankings, a list that's usually one of the most accurate nationally. Steele notes two important guidelines about this year's rankings, which for this exercise have been trimmed to the first 25 teams. "My preseason rankings are not my power rankings," Steele writes. "These rankings take into account the totality...

    With over 37 million residents, Greater Tokyo is the most populous metro area in the world today. Urban growth is not unique to Japan. By 2030, the United Nations predicts that the world will have 43 megacities, defined as metro areas with more than 10 million people. Most of them will be in developing regions in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. The UN recently released its annual World Urbanization Prospects, which estimates which metro areas will have the highest populations by 2030. On World Population Day this Wednesday, let's take a look at the top 13: 13. Greater New...

The chicken chain was named the favorite limited-service restaurant by consumers according to the 2018 American Customer Satisfaction Index’s Restaurant Report, USA Today reported. Chick-fil-A beat out other restaurants like Panera and Taco Bell based on interviews with 22,500 customers. They were asked about the products, services and satisfaction, USA Today reported.

    Are you folks aware that when the weekly Cable TV News viewer numbers are posted, the viewers watching Fox Business Channel are not included. As it stands Fox News Channel alone is destroying both MSNBC and basement dweller, CNN. Add the FBN viewer numbers and fox just about outscores all of cable television.

    Here are five judges who could potentially replace the retiring Anthony Kennedy. The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy today gives President Trump a second nominee to the Supreme Court and an opportunity to strengthen the hold of conservatives on the court majority with a younger, more conservative successor to Kennedy. Five federal appeals court judges are at the top of the list of potential nominees: Brett Kavanaugh, 53, of Maryland, a major figure in conservative legal circles, sits on the D.C. Circuit Court. He is known for his impressive decisions and writings while sitting on a court that President Obama...

It's called the manchineel tree (Hippomane mancinella), found throughout the Florida Everglades, Central America and the Caribbean. Inhaling sawdust or smoke from the 30-foot (9.1-meter) tall tree may result in a variety of uncomfortable side effects, including coughing, laryngitis and bronchitis. Some reports suggest that simply standing beneath the tree during a rainstorm and being splashed by runoff may result in rashes and itching. Your car isn't even safe from this toxic tree: Park under its low branches, and...
