In fairness, few players can match Watson's ability to hit his receivers deep, but Savage should still favor Hopkins in this game. On the opposite sideline, look for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to have a breakout performance. Over the past four weeks, it seems as though the former Texas Longhorn has been knocking on the door of a monster day after a slow start to the season.
During that time span, Goodwin has caught 15 passes for 328 yards and one 83-yard touchdown in which he beat stout New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins. Furthermore, Goodwin hauled in all eight of his targets for 99 yards in Jimmy Garoppolo's first start with the team. That performance came against the Chicago Bears in Soldier Field. Although the Bears are 3-9, the Vic-Fangio-led defense has been impressive this season: Football Outsiders ranks them in the top half of the league against the run and pass.
The fact that Goodwin was able to go a perfect eight for eight on his targets against an above-average defense on the road with a new starting quarterback is a good sign for future success. Goodwin has an easier matchup this Sunday in Houston's NRG Stadium (which has a retractable roof). Not only will the 49ers be shielded from elements (which can't be said for other wideouts this week), they will also have one of the best matchups on paper.
For the season, the Texans have allowed 7. Houston is missing numerous key pieces on defense (namely defensive end J.
Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus), and that has clearly hindered its ability to stop teams. Houston has also allowed some big games to opposing wideouts, namely 171 yards and two touchdowns to the Los Angeles Rams' Robert Woods and 175 yards and two scores to the Indianapolis Colts' T. The guess here is that Goodwin adds his name to that list this Sunday.

Finds Extreme Poverty and Human Rights In an Unexpected Place by Robby Berman Playing Super Mario 64 Increases Brain Health in Adults by Stephen Johnson Scientists Link 2 Genes to Homosexuality in Men by Robby Berman Loading. That's great, but many of those predictions will be hopelessly wrong by the end of March. That's why it's so fascinating that Ray Kurzweil, one of the leading thinkers when it comes to the future of technology, has had such a strong track record in making predictions about technology for nearly two decades.
So how does he do it. The fact is, Ray has a system and this system is called the Law of Accelerating Returns. In his new book How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed, Kurzweil points out that "every fundamental measure of information technology follows predictable and exponential trajectories.
Thanks to paradigms such as Moore's Law, which reduces computing power to a problem of how many transistors you can cram on a chip, anyone can intuitively understand why computers are getting exponentially faster and cheaper over time. The other famous exponential growth curve in our lifetime is the sheer amount of digital information available on the Internet. Kurzweil typically graphs this as "bits per second transmitted on the Internet.
That's why "Big Data" is such a buzzword these days - there's a growing recognition that we're losing track of all the information we're putting up on the Internet, from Facebook status updates, to YouTube videos, to funny meme posts on Tumblr.
In just a decade, we will have created more content than existed for thousands of years in humanity's prior experience. And it's not just computing power or the growth of the Internet. Chapter ten in Kurzweil's latest book, How to Create a Mind, includes 15 other charts that show these exponential growth curves at work. Once any technology becomes an information technology, it becomes subject to the Law of Accelerating Returns. Consider biomedicine, for example. Now that the human genome is being translated into a digital life code of 1's and 0's that can be processed by computers, it's also an information technology, and that means it's also subject to the Law of Accelerating Returns.
When you look at the cost of sequencing a human-sized genome, the cost started dropping exponentially around 2001 and fell off the genomic cliff in about 2007 -- about the same time that Craig Venter's genome project took off. As Ray points out in How to Create a Mind, the reason why typical pundits and prognosticators typically get it wrong year after year is that the human mind has evolved to think linearly, not exponentially.
We conceive of 40 steps as a linear progression: one step after another, from 1 to 40.Very good variety and quantity at suitable times. Rooms were very clean and of a good size. Customer service was great. We loved the train travel. Scenery magnificent - waterfalls, mountains, snow, fjords, valleys, Flam railway. Comfort class worth the extra cost.
A once in a lifetime trip for us. We will treasure our memories (and photos). Thanks for helping us to achieve a wonderful holiday. I cannot rate this tour highly enough. Nordic Visitor was recommended to me by my travel agent (a personal friend) who had received very good reports from another client. I will most certainly advise her that it more than lived up to my expectations. Please pass on my thanks to Sara. If it had been possible, I would have liked to do that myself while in Norway.
Our travel agent was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She helped us book a meal on our cruise in advance, she sent us our travel vouchers in email and had them ready for us at our first hotel, she was constantly updating us as things were booked and finalized.
We had a wonderful experience largely in part due to having accommodations and trains booked for us in advance. It was a great relief not having to worry about that.
Line was an excellent guide. She was kind and thoughtful. Line was also well organized regarding tickets and getting us where we needed to be. The small group (9 of us) was perfect and made the trip more enjoyable than being in a herd of people.
I loved everything about the trip. We did the South Iceland at Leisure tour and the planning attention to detail that Erla put together for our trip made for a great experience. Everything exceeded our expectations, including the gentleman that picked us up at the airport.
Nordic Visitor provided my family with an unbelievable first trip to Iceland. All of the communication with our travel advisor, Helga, beforehand was impeccable and so thorough.
Every step of our journey was so well thought out and perfectly timed. They made driving through the South of Iceland so comfortable, especially with a nine year old. Their recommendations of how to time everything was perfectly planned and we really felt that we got to see so much in a relaxed way in just 6 days. I will recommend this company to everyone and hope to go back to Iceland again and possibly Norway with their help.Another popular form of golf betting involves matchup propositions, in which two golfers are paired against each other in a head-to-head wager, with a betting line on each golfer set by the oddsmaker.
The golfer with the better (lower) score wins the matchup. Some matchups pit one (usually very good) golfer against two or more others. For example, Woods may be pitted against Phil Mickelson, Davis Love III and Ernie Els. To determine the winner, take Woods' score and compare with to the best (lowest) score recorded by the three others. Rules vary by casino, but usually your golfer must tee off in the tournament for "action" (meaning once he tees off, you will either win or lose your bet).
If for some reason he does not tee off, this is usually considered "no action" and tickets are refunded. To bet on hockey, tell the ticket writer the bet number of the team you wish to bet and the amount you wish to wager.
If your team covers the goal spread, you win. The payout is based on a "Money Line". When betting on hockey, the team you bet on must "cover the spread. The Red Wings must win the game by at least two goals to be a winner. If you bet on the Sharks, you win your bet if:(a) The Sharks win the game. Note: The money line is used in conjunction with the point spread. All teams must win to win the bet. Hockey parlays are figured out by calculating the payout for the first game, based on the money line, then applying that amount to the next game and so forth.
Thanks to satellite feeds from racetracks around the nation, Las Vegas is a sort of nirvana for horse racing bettors (or "horseplayers," as they are sometimes called). Because there are so many tracks to choose from, in Las Vegas race books it is usually necessary to identify which track you want when you place your bet.
For example, tell the ticket writer, "Churchill Downs, eighth race, five dollars to win on No. Betting a horse "across the board" is really three separate bets: one to win, one to place and one to show.
A "superfecta" is the first four finishers in exacta order. A "daily double" is a wager that calls for picking the winners of two consecutive races.
A "daily triple" entails picking the winners of three consecutive races. And a "Pick Six" calls for picking the winners of six consecutive races, an extremely difficult feat that is usually rewarded with an enormous payout. In Las Vegas, race books frequently offer promotions such as free contests with cash prizes, special house-banked betting pools that grow larger if no one hits them for a few days or horse racing tournaments.
Rules and details vary greatly by casino so be sure to shop around to find those that appeal to you. Nevada sports books are not permitted to accept wagers on presidential elections, the Academy Awards or the winner of the TV show "Survivor. They are not real betting lines. Under state law, wagers must involve the outcome of "athletic contests" rather than elections or votes of any kind.
This means you cannot even bet on who will win awards such as the Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young and the like. Even so, "wacky" proposition bets can sometimes be found in Las Vegas sports books.Take some time to master the concept of Shift-Queuing, as this will take much of the pain out of your Macro game (see further up the page). This powerful system allows you to assign an activity to one of your units, then have it scoot off and start another job immediately after completing the first task your assignedTo Shift-Queue, simply select the unit, hold down Shift, issue one order, and then issue another order without letting go of Shift.
This is especially useful in the early game when you're racing to set up a robust economy, and where you don't want to lose a fraction of a second in efficiency to your opponent.

Join 1000s of MoneySavers in the Forum's many discussion boards. It's all about 'comping', a potentially profitable hobby. This guide covers sourcing the right free online competitions, using web gadgets to form-fill at speed, free help with tie-breakers and much more.
Thanks to the Competition Time board's users, especially comping queen VelvetGlove (see her comping guide for more on lots of the tips below).
The aim of this guide is to complement the forum board. Hopefully it will mean more competitions posted, and more prizes for MoneySavers. Competitions are a cheap chance for companies to promote their wares. Add to that the chance to collect valuable info on potential customers, and it's easy to see why these contests abound. This way, you're statistically more likely to win big. Depending on your work ethic and luck, you could furnish your house, travel the world and boost your bank balance.
Often all entering involves is filling in an online form or sending a postcard, sometimes answering a question or tie-breaker. Plus your gains are tax-free, so unlike other ways to boost your income, the taxman won't get any of it. Unlike other money-makers, such as Survey Sites, eBay Selling, Facebook Selling, Earning Cash Online and other ways to Boost Your Income, the rewards aren't guaranteed.
Think of comping as a potentially rewarding hobby, rather than a potentially underpaid job. The spirit of comping is it's a bit of fun, rather than a dead cert money-spinner. Hours can be long, payouts poor and your bum certainly won't thank you for sitting at the computer all day. That said, for those who catch the bug, these become minor details as they enjoy the spirit of community on the board, and hopefully wins flooding in.
It's also fun to drool over all those lavish prizes.The intended audience for our content is current and future tool users from both the professional and homeowner segments. We are fully connected in the triangle of the tool world.

Total retail sales for the holiday season of November and December will grow by 3. That sounds like good news, but it's actually less than the 4.
It's not that people are shopping less or not buying as much. Instead, sales totals are being driven down by increased discounting. This holiday season growth rate is also below the expected 3. Again, that's due at least in part to intense competition between retailers driving prices lower. While it seems like online retailers have taken a huge piece of the market, they only accounted for an estimated 10.
In 2017, eMarketer expects online retail sales to grow to 11. Others, such as dollar stores and luxury are doing well. So underneath the generally positive numbers are spots of real turmoil and contraction. In addition, overall growth at physical retailers has slowed. Digital growth is being pushed by "increases in mobile commerce and the intensifying online battle between large retailers and digital marketplaces," according to eMarketer. These predictions indicate that the slow march to more sales moving online continues, but brick-and-mortar retailers still have the vast majority of the business.Download the Healthy Drinks Vending Machine Guidelines.

Here are some practical tips to help you bake better gluten-free bread.
Yeast loves a warm environment and bread will rise more quickly and completely when ingredients are at room temperature rather than cold. Gluten-free flours are often stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Using chilled ingredients will significantly slow the yeasts' ability to leaven bread.
A convenient way to bring chilled flours to room temperature is to measure flour(s) for your recipe and place in a bowl on the counter the night before baking. For perishable ingredients, like eggs and milk, set on the counter about 2 hours before preparing your recipe. Just like bread made with wheat, high protein content in gluten-free flour adds structure and flavor. Sorghum, millet, amaranth, teff, gluten-free oatmeal, and buckwheat all contain more protein than rice flour.
This may sound like a trivial subject, but there is a right way and a wrong way to measure flours. How you measure your gluten-free flours and starches can affect your gluten-free cooking results, for better or for worse.
Step by Step Guide - How to Measure Gluten-Free Flour the Right WayEggs are natural leaveners that help boost the rise and volume of bread. Eggs also add moisture, flavor, and protein to gluten-free bread recipes. Yeast thrives in an acidic environment, which promotes better volume in your loaves. Ascorbic acid also acts as a natural preservative, increasing the shelf-life of your bread.
Most health food stores sell powdered ascorbic acid. Connie Sarros uses this ingredient in bread recipes found in her excellent gluten-free cookbook, Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Reduced-Calorie Cookbook.
It really works and adds moisture to gluten-free bread recipes. Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread with Added MayonnaiseOlive oil is a healthy cooking oil that adds wonderful flavor to bread. Another benefit of using olive oil in bread recipes is that it adds moisture, a tender texture, and extends shelf-life of your gluten-free bread.
Gluten-Free Rosemary Walnut Bread Prepared with Lots of Healthy Olive OilNote: You can omit the fresh rosemary and walnuts in this gluten-free bread recipe for a wonderful, crusty everyday sandwich bread. Pectin is frequently derived from citrus fruit and apples and is a familiar ingredient in jelly and jam recipes.
Pectin also promotes moisture retention in bread and can be used as a vegan substitute in gluten-free bread recipes. Look for citrus or apple pectin at health food stores or at grocery stores where jam and jelly making ingredients are kept. Expandex adds wheat-like texture to gluten-free bread. It can be added directly to your mixes or you can use a mix like Jules' Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour Mix which contains Expandex.

A digital, or "instant read" thermometer will save you lots of frustration because it lets you easily measure the internal temperature of your bread.
