Matt Cutts on solving big problems with lean solutions at the US Digital Service

Updating the federal government’s digital infrastructure seems like a Herculean task akin to cleaning out the Augean stables. Where do you even start shoveling? Former Googler and current head of the U.S. Digital Service Matt Cutts says it’s not quite that hard — but he’s had to leave his Silicon Valley startup outlook at the door. “In the Valley and San Francisco, they’re geared to move fast and break things. And that’s fantastic to explore a space,” Cutts told me in an interview. “But the g...

Duke’s Zion Williamson wins AP men’s college player of the year

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Just about everything Zion Williamson did at Duke created a highlight or headline in a spectacle of a season. The soaring dunks. The open-court moves more nimble than his 6-foot-7, 285-pound frame should allow. Even the freak occurrence of one of his feet tearing through its shoe in a fall to the court. Handling all that attention became maybe the biggest lesson for the freshman, who quickly became the face of college basketball and the game’s biggest star in years — then fitt...

UCLA gymnastics wins Ann Arbor regional semifinal to reach super regional

She is one of the most decorated college gymnastics coaches in history, but Valorie Kondos Field rarely speaks to her team about gymnastics. Instead, she harps on things like the lost art of saying “you’re welcome.” The head coach hopes to collect championships through kindness, and with the No. 2 Bruins now one meet away from a berth in the NCAA championships, it’s hard to argue with her strategy after UCLA won its regional semifinal on Friday with a 197.675 to advance to Saturday’s Ann Arbor s...

UCLA gymnastics team thrives behind Grace Glenn, Margzetta Frazier in leadoff roles

LOS ANGELES — For every perfect 10 Grace Glenn doesn’t get on beam, the junior allows her teammates the opportunity to compete for one of their own. The unflappable Glenn is proud to bear that sacrifice. “It’s for the team,” said Glenn, UCLA’s consistent leadoff performer on beam. “If the team needs me as leadoff and if that’s where I’m best placed, then I’m fine with it.” Stars like Kyla Ross and Katelyn Ohashi often compete at the end of the rotation and earn the highest scores, but leadoff pe...

Six Women Who Are Revolutionizing the World of Fly Fishing

To the casual observer, the world of fly fishing may look like a totally male-dominated endeavor. Dig a little deeper, however, and you will inevitably discover the long-held and enduring legacy that female anglers have imprinted on the sport. It was Joan Wulff who changed the sport forever. In 1943, at the age of sixteen, she walked away with top honors in the national dry fly accuracy championship. From there she would go on to rack up twenty-one additional casting titles before ultimately win...
