Confused Immigrants on a Wire

Birds on a wire. Starlings, of course.When out with the dogs in winter, we often see large flocks of starlings, often with cowbirds and blackbirds mixed in, winging down to settle on cut-over corn fields and soy rakes, huddled on the lee side of shed roofs, and even settling on roads in order to make use of the warmth radiating up from the black tarmac.Believe it or not, the more than 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are direct descendents of approximately 100 birds in...

All The Hawkeye Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In The First Two Episodes

The first two episodes of "Hawkeye" are streaming now on Disney+, and just like every other project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are plenty of Easter eggs to behold. Since much of the show's underlying villainous plot is still kept under wraps, some of these Easter eggs just might hint at what "Hawkeye" is setting up for the future of the MCU. While one theory ties into the reveal of Kang the Conqueror at the end of "Loki," another theory speculates about the possibility of bringing i...

Raiders' Derek Carr and Khalil Mack traveled a long, painful road to win in Baltimore

NFL BALTIMORE — Derek Carr and Khalil Mack have been the future of the Raiders ever since they arrived together in the 2014 draft, and they’ve made their happy present possible — especially Sunday against the Ravens, when they helped carry Oakland to its third road win in three tries already this season. But they’re not so far removed from the team’s awful past, either. They’ve paid more than enough dues after the rookie year they, and several tea...

Increasingly Popular Ghost Guns Fuel an 'Epidemic of Violence', says NYT

Untraceable "ghost guns" assembled from parts bought online "can be ordered by gang members, felons and even children," writes the New York Times. They call the guns "increasingly the lethal weapon of easy access around the U.S., but especially California," based on interviews with law enforcement officials in Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego and San Francisco: Over the past 18 months, the officials said, ghost guns accounted for 25 to 50 percent of firearms recovered at crime scenes.

Who’s In Charge?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, What a coincidence that ESPN/ABC switched out of Blackhawks-Blues to Rangers-Bruins at 1 p.m. on Black Friday in the network’s first over-the-air national telecast since gaining NHL rights this season.

The Walsh Method of Evaluating Offensive Tackles

A quick look at Bill Walsh's coaching tree is evidence enough of the late coach's football genius. The modern NFL owes much of its coaching philosophy to Walsh, and though he clearly shaped today's coaching landscape by forging efficient leaders, he is remembered mostly for his true genius on the chalkboard. Few coaches can claim to have changed the game as much as Walsh, who – along with Sam Wyche, George Seifert, and others – helped to shape the West Coast concepts that still flavor nearly eve...
