Vikings' OTA observations: Receiver carousel turns as Stefon Diggs skips voluntary practices

The only absence was notable from the Vikings' second Organized Team Activity session on Wednesday, because the receiver opposite star Adam Thielen kept changing for Kirk Cousins. Stefon Diggs skipped the first two OTAs after participating sparingly in the Vikings offseason program that started April 15. He's expected to return Thursday, according to Cousins. "That will be fun to have him back," Cousins said. But on Wednesday, up came Jordan Taylor, the 6-foot-5 target whom Gary Kubiak liked in ...

Never Abandon Work You Are Exceptional At

--> In the movie industry, when a movie studio makes a successful movie that becomes a blockbuster, they generally will make a sequel. They would be crazy not to. They have a formula that works. It is the same thing with books, television shows and other products. If you make something that is successful, you start making and doing more of the same. Amazon has recently gotten into the business of producing shows and has been coming out with more “pilots” than I can count. It is a brilliant strat...

A Plugin To Make Baby Shopping Easier and Less Toxic

I love using Chrome extensions and plugins for comparison shopping. I use quite a few when online shopping to make sure I am getting the best deal (is Amazon really the cheapest?) or see trends (ie when the price will drop). I also use plugins that scour the Internet for promotional coupon codes so that I rarely have to pay full price. Using these plugins I am able to save hundreds of dollars every year. I recently came across another genius plugin that helps you with the daunting task...

How J.J. Abrams Went Renegade for ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,’ Which He Says is About “the Promise of the Future”

With the Star Wars films constantly changing hands from director to director, it’s difficult for some filmmakers to be beholden to fan expectations. J.J. Abrams, who returns to direct Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker after introducing the sci-fi franchise to a new generation with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is feeling that pressure, especially on the heels of the rule-breaking, fandom-dividing film that was Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And while some are concerned that he may fall bac...

During damage control, Lakers give glimpse into their new power structure

EL SEGUNDO — Who is pulling the strings for the Lakers?

Beyond Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss, who is influencing key offseason decisions?

Cap Strapped Trade Targets For the New Jersey Devils

There are quite a few NHL clubs heading for a salary cap crunch this summer, and New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero has used situations like this to his strength in the past. He has been known to flip draft picks and prospects to teams in cap trouble in exchange for NHL-ready talent such a Kyle Palmieri and Marcus Johansson. With the NHL projecting a salary cap of $83 million for next season, the Devils are sitting pretty with over $35.5 million in available cap space. This puts the...

The government of Baltimore has been taken hostage by ransomware and may remain shut down for weeks

Nearly two weeks after the city of Baltimore's internal networks were compromised by the Samsam ransomware worm (previously), the city is still weeks away from recovering services -- that's weeks during which the city is unable to process utility payments or municipal fines, register house sales, or perform other basic functions of city governance. 911 and emergency services are OK, because after they were hit by a ransomware attack last year, they were hardened against future attacks.

Alexander: Lakers GM Rob Pelinka tries to stay above the fray

EL SEGUNDO — Who would have been willing to bet, at mid-morning Monday, that Rob Pelinka would actually show his face at the 11 a.m. news conference to introduce new Lakers coach Frank Vogel? Give him credit, regardless of what you think of his ability as a general manager. Pelinka showed up and did not shrink from the questions, a large number of them referencing Magic Johnson’s scorched-earth appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” on Monday morning, when he accused Pelinka of backstabbing and outli...
