Five Super Bowl storylines to watch
(Reuters) - Five storylines to watch for Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots: - - - Seahawks look for repeat With a victory over New England, the Seattle Seahawks would become the eighth franchise to win back-to-back Super Bowls, carving out a little place in NFL history. After last year’s thrashing of the Denver Broncos, 43-8 in the championship game, a win Sunday would also mean the Seahawks defeated both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in consecutive title games, a feat that would make their championship run all the more memorable.

Patriots rise from humble beginning to become powerhouse
(Reuters) - From a humble beginning in 1960 in the old American Football League, the New England Patriots have risen to a modern powerhouse with three Super Bowl victories this century. Initially named the Boston Patriots, the franchise competed for 10 seasons in the AFL before the AFL and NFL merged and the team was placed in the AFC East. In 1971, the franchise moved to the Boston suburb of Foxborough and changed their name to the New England Patriots. Under head coach Raymond Berry, New England reached their first Super Bowl in the 1985 season, but were thrashed 46-10 by the Chicago Bears.

There were 111 concussions reported in 2014, down from the 148 during the 2013 season and down nearly 36 percent from the 173 in 2012, the NFL said during its annual pre-Super Bowl health and safety news conference.

Nationals' Werth to serve five days in jail for reckless driving

(Reuters) - Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth pleaded guilty on Thursday to a reckless driving charge in Fairfax County, Virginia, and will serve five days in jail. The 35-year-old former All-Star Werth admitted to driving his Porsche 911 more than 100 mph on the Capital Beltway in Virginia last July in a stretch where the posted limit is 55 mph. "We are aware of the agreement reached today," the Nationals said in a statement. "We do not condone reckless behavior, and we expect all members of the Washington Nationals organization to act in a responsible manner. We support Jayson, who is an integral part of the community and of the Washington Nationals family." Werth will serve his sentence on weekends so he can continue rehabilitation during the week for the arthroscopic shoulder surgery he had earlier this month.

NFLPA vows to fight league's new personal conduct policy

By Steve Keating PHOENIX (Reuters) - The National Football League Players Association will do all it can to prevent the NFL's newly-imposed personal conduct policy from being implemented, the union's leaders said on Thursday. NFLPA President Eric Winston and Executive Director DeMaurice Smith were in defiant form ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl, both saying they will resist any proposed changes to the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) signed in 2011. The players union filed a grievance last week against the NFL over the new personal conduct policy that was unanimously approved by team owners last month after a string of domestic violence cases. "The new personal conduct policy, I guess if you want to call it that, instituted by the league, in our eyes, my eyes and every players' eyes violates the CBA in several ways and we are going to be grieving this as far as we can," said Winston.

Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns during the regular season with his power and positional astuteness making him quarterback Tom Brady’s go-to option.

By Mark Lamport-Stokes SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (Reuters) - While Tiger Woods struggled in his first PGA Tour start of the season, Ryan Palmer birdied two of his last three holes to seize a one-shot lead at the weather-hit Waste Management Phoenix Open on Thursday. Palmer, bidding for his fourth career victory on the U.S. circuit, covered his last seven holes in five under par to card a seven-under 64 in the opening round at the TPC Scottsdale before play was suspended for the day in fading light. Nine players were yet to complete the round when the siren sounded to halt the action with PGA Tour rookie Daniel Berger the best placed at six under after 16 holes. Keegan Bradley and Masters champion Bubba Watson opened with 65s but 14-times major winner Woods looked very rusty in his first PGA Tour event in five months as he started out with an erratic 73 on a mainly overcast day in the Arizona desert.

Concussions down 25%, says NFL

The number of reported concussions suffered by players in NFL games declined 25 percent in the 2014 season, the league said, ahead of the Super Bowl. Concussions has been a hot-button issue for the sport, amid accusations the NFL is not doing enough to protect players. In a health and safety briefing on Thursday, the league said the number of concussions caused by helmet-to-helmet hits had fallen most dramatically, an apparent result of stricter rules on such tackles. The drop in reported concussions comes despite the introduction of increased efforts to spot them, including sideline cameras, observers in the stands and improved diagnostic techniques.

Fame made ex-NFL star a target in murder case, lawyer says

By Scott Malone and Daniel Lovering FALL RIVER, Mass. (Reuters) - Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez had no reason to kill the semiprofessional football player he is charged with murdering in 2013, but was targeted by law enforcement because of his fame, his attorneys argued on Thursday. The first of two murder trials that the one-time National Football League star faces this year opened in Massachusetts Superior Court in Fall River just days before his former team faces the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl in Phoenix, Arizona, 2,600 miles (4,184 kilometers) away. Prosecutors contend that Hernandez, 25, murdered Odin Lloyd in an industrial park near his North Attleborough, Massachusetts, home in June 2013, after a dispute regarding some people that Lloyd had spent time with at a nightclub, a charge that his lawyers vigorously opposed in their opening statements. "Aaron Hernandez is an innocent man," defense attorney Michael Fee told the jury.

The latest false alarm caused a two-minute disturbance and there were no injuries or reason to evacuate, a spokeswoman for the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass told Reuters.

AJI Report #19 | Scott K Davis and his son Tommy on Gamification and Programming for Kids

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jjulian/archive/2012/11/13/aji-report-19--scott-k-davis-and-his-son.aspx

We are very excited about this show. John and Jeff sat down with Scott Davis and his son Tommy to talk about Gamification and Programming for Kids. Tommy is nine years old and the Iowa Code Camp was his second time presenting. Scott and Tommy introduce a package called Scratch that was developed by MIT to teach kids about logic and interacting with programming using sprites. Tommy's favorite experience with programming right now is Lego Mindstorms because of the interaction with the Legos and the development. Most adults when they get started with development also got started with interacting more with the physical machines. The next generation is given amazing tools, but the tools tend to be sealed and the physical interaction is not there. With some of these alternative hobby platforms like Legos, Arduino, and .NET Micro Framework, kids can write some amazing application and see their code work with physical movement and interaction with devices and sensors.

In the second half of this podcast, Scott talks about how companies can us Gamification to prompt employees to interact with software and processes in the organization. We see gamification throughout the consumer space and you need to do is open up the majority of the apps on our phones or tablets and there is some interaction point to give the user a reward for using the tool. Scott gets into his product Qonqr which is described as the board game Risk and Foursquare together. Scott gets into the different mindsets of gamers (Bartle Index) and how you can use these mindsets to get the most out of your team through gamification techniques.

Patrick Delancy, the first person we interviewed on the AJI Report, is joining us again for Episode 18. This time around Patrick explains what Code Smells and Anti-patterns are and how developers can learn from these issues in their code. Patrick takes the approach of addressing your code in his presentations instead of pointing fingers at others. We spend a lot of time talking about how to address a developer with bad practices in place that would show up on the radar as a Code Smell or Anti-Pattern without making them feel inferior. Patrick also list out a few open-source frameworks that use good patterns and practices as well as how he continues his education through interacting with other developers.
