Bloom Binging Without Precaution

Dead Horse Gap in Prospect, KY. Rose and I are lying low in Salvisa, but we drive to Louisville once a week for grocery shopping at the Dirty Kroger in Clifton and for bloom binging in Cave Hill Cemetery, Cherokee Park and nearby Kentucky woodlands. Photographing spring blooms takes a bit of the edge off social isolation. I love Kentucky in April. In fact, I am willing to take on anyone who thinks they have better early spring blooms than Kentucky. Trillium erectum and Phlox divaricata in P...

Bruins’ Lauzon Making Most of Latest Opportunity

Jeremy Lauzon had played a handful of games in a Boston Bruins uniform before the last time he was called up just before the team’s bye week in January. He played well in those previous appearances but never impressed head coach Bruce Cassidy enough to stick around long. However, things are different this time. Lauzon was called up in January when general manager Don Sweeney and the Bruins’ brass instituted a bit of a roster shakeup. In the matter of a couple of weeks, forwards Brett Ritchie ...

The No4 Mk1 Scout Rifle

I have always thought the Scout Rifle concept was an interesting, and versatile one. Some rifles that have always caught my eye are the "tanker" Garands, and the M1A Scout Squad. They just have a real cool look that I thought was handy, and could lend them to the scout rifle concept. I wanted to stay with a bolt gun though, and the Lee Enfield has always fascinated me by the cock on close design, and 10 round magazine. I decided to make a "tanker" Lee Enfield version of a Scout Rifle. I like th...

Karachi’s first elected mayor Jamshed Nusserwanjee remembered

Celebrating the 134th birth anniversary of Jamshed Nusserwanjee (1886-1952), a philanthropist and the first elected mayor of Karachi, speakers at a gathering on Sunday stressed the dire need to understand and acknowledge the contributions of various non-Muslim communities, especially Parsis. The Karachi Theosophical Society, a forum founded in 1896, organised the gathering at the auditorium of the Jamshed Memorial Hall to pay tributes to Nusserwanjee and discuss his work as the city’s first elec...

Small business as missions: 2019 and onward

Connor Clifton exits Bruins-Sabres game with upper body injury

BOSTON – The Bruins will be minus another member of their defensemen corps for at least the rest of Sunday night's game as Connor Clifton exited in the first period with an upper-body injury. Clifton played seven shifts and 5:52 of ice time with one shot attempt and two hits in the Sunday night Atlantic Division tilt with the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden, and never came out for the second period at all. The Bruins are already down both Torey Krug (upper body) and Charlie McAvoy (upper body) ...

Paying it forward in Asia: loans build community and Church

Asia (MNN) – Eighteen years ago a FARMS International loan program seeded opportunity and the gospel message in Northern Thailand. That community loan program became the root of two, soon to be three more. FARMS church-based loan programs create a cycle of growth and blessing that expands the church and opportunity. “They break the cycle of poverty. But in the process, they're also able to give more to their churches and they're able to use the business and the relationships through the bu...

Bruins’ Injuries Raising Serious Lineup Questions

October proved to be a month full of treats for the Boston Bruins as they finished with a 9-1-2 record and finally began to see scoring from outside of their top line. Just two games into November they are still able to keep their win-streak alive, but as we all know, with success comes a price to pay. Following Saturday’s game against the Ottawa Senators, they managed to go down another player, as David Backes collided with Scott Sabourin and both players left the game. Upon evaluation, he ...

You Ask, I Answer: Media Value of Reddit Posts?

Clifton asks, “Does anyone know how to calculate the media value for a post on Reddit?” This question leads towards the metric that won’t die: ad value equivalency (or cost equivalence).

Bruins & Blues Stanley Cup Chess Match Just Getting Started

BOSTON — Bruce Cassidy didn’t mince words or hide behind the secrecy of playoff hockey. The Boston Bruins coach telegraphed the most important matchup of the Stanley Cup Final on the morning of Game 1. As long as he had the last change and the ability to dictate matchups, his top line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak would play against the St. Louis Blues’ red-hot line of Jaden Schwartz, Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko. Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patric...

Bruins Shake off Rust to Rally and Beat Blues in Stanley Cup Opener

BOSTON — Sean Kuraly scored to break a third-period tie and assisted on another goal to help the Boston Bruins rally from a two-goal deficit and beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Monday night in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. Tuukka Rask stopped 18 shots for Boston, which fell behind 2-0 on goals from Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko. But the Bruins outshot the Blues 18-3 in the second period — and 38-20 in the game — to take the opener in the best-of-seven series. Brad Marchand added...

McAvoy’s Suspension Warranted, but Painful in Playoffs

The Boston Bruins caught a break. When Charlie McAvoy hit Columbus Blue Jackets forward Josh Anderson in the head in Game 6 of their second-round matchup and only received a two-minute penalty, the Bruins got lucky. When McAvoy was suspended for one game of the Eastern Conference Finals, the punishment fit the crime given that it was his first offense and that the playoffs typically dictate a different supplemental punishment scale.

FARMS helps Filipinos overcome poverty pitfalls

Philippines (MNN) -- Poverty continues to challenge the Philippines. ASEAN Today reports 20-percent, or one in every five Filipinos, live below the poverty line. Many fall victim to financial scams like high-interest loans. People borrow money to make ends meet, explains Scott Clifton of FARMS International,  but it only makes their situation worse than before. “Let’s say they took a 1,000-peso loan,” he says. “After four months, they would owe [the] 1,000 pesos that they borrowed plus ...

Bruins Prospects Primed & Ready After Debuts

It seems that the times of experimentation have come to an end for the boiling-hot Boston Bruins. With the additions of forwards Charlie Coyle, from the Minnesota Wild and Marcus Johansson from the New Jersey Devils, the roster has taken what hopes to be its lasting shape ahead of the final push to the playoffs. In what has been a successful season from the start, the Black & Gold, mostly due to the injury bug, have given six of their top prospects their first tastes of the NHL, to the tune of 4...
