It’s all on them, no matter how much they try to make it seem like it’s all on Cousins.Why? This all goes back to the Snyder Mike Shanahan feud. It has never disappeared. That venom returns, perhaps subconsciously, every time a Cousins contract comes up. In no way do I let Vettel off for his repeated mistakes and in no way is Kimi to blame. I completely agree, Vettel has been handed opportunity after opportunity to make huge gains over Hamilton and has bottled it, today being a prime example. My only question is the driving from both of them into T1, I really wasRead More →

To be perfectly truthful, the Apatow clip also takes on Austrians and the Chinese. But still, Australians seem to be the main target, starting with an uber Aussie sounding Eric Bana.What will it take to restore the land down under from utter absurdity in the eyesRead More →

Much later in the day as we headed north we saw the same buffalo herd just beginning to cross the road heading for the Sabie River and a drink of water right towards the sleeping pride. The lions woke up and quietly watched them approach, a few slowly moving to better hide themselves behind a bush or a large clump of grass. We were going to see a kill a rare sighting indeed!.

But here’s why we all had it wrong: The first ever study of transgender athletes showed that the hormone therapy that facilitates male to female transition does more than just suppress testosterone. Published last year in the Journal of Sporting Cultures and Identities, the study showed that as testosterone levels approach female norms, trans women experience a decrease in muscle mass, bone density and other physical characteristics. Harper, who is chief medical physicist at Oregon’s Providence Portland Medical Center, a trans athlete and a participant in the IOC meeting that overhauled the trans guidelines, explained to me that “it’s not the anatomy that matters, it’sRead More →

I was about five or six years old, and it was summer time. My dad worked nights at the time, and my mom worked during the day while my dad “watched me” (he slept all day). For some strange reason I lit a candle and put itRead More →

See how the exponential just keeps going up faster and faster? The more you go in the positive x direction, the steeper the slope gets. (And importantly, it also gets steeper at an exponential rate. But that will make more sense in calculus.) Before too long, it almost looks like a vertical line.
