First openly gay NFL draftee Sam released by Rams

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by the National Football League, was cut from the St. Louis Rams but said he's confident he'll have another shot at making a pro football roster this season. Sam was released Saturday by the Rams, as NFL teams make their final cuts before the season begins in a few days' time. All NFL teams had to reach the 53-man NFL limit by Saturday ahead of next week's season openers, and the 24-year-old defensive end's fate came down to the Rams having too much talent on the defensive line. "It was not a difficult decision," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.

Athens Olympics leave mixed legacy, 10 years later

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — In an obscure corner of a park sits a forlorn reminder that, 10 years ago, Athens hosted the 2004 Summer Olympics. The crumbling miniature theater is inscribed with the words "glory, wealth, wisdom, victory, triumph, hero, labor" — and it is where visiting Olympic officials planted an olive sapling that would bear their names for posterity.

Greece ace in wildcard pack, Senegal's hot streak continues

Greece and hosts Spain were the first teams to book their spots in the knockout stage of the Basketball World Cup on Monday by beating Puerto Rico while Senegal took their second surprise scalp in as many days.

Greece, who received a wild card for the World Cup, pulled away in the third quarter and never really let the Puerto Ricans back into the game as they hit big shots in the fourth quarter.

Sam fails to secure spot on Rams' practice squad

(Reuters) - Defensive end Michael Sam's bid to become the first openly gay player in the National Football League (NFL) looked even more remote on Monday when he failed to make the St. Louis Rams' 10-man practice squad. Two days after being cut from the Rams' final 53-man roster for the 2014 regular season, and a day after going unclaimed on wavers by any other NFL team, Sam was still on the outside looking in. The 6-feet-2 (1.88 m), 260-pound (118 kg) former University of Missouri standout became the first openly gay player to be selected in an NFL Draft when he was taken in the seventh round by the Rams in May. But despite his success at Missouri, talent evaluators have said he might struggle in the NFL, perhaps too small to play regularly on the defensive line and not athletic enough to play in space as a linebacker. Of the 10 players signed up by the Rams on Monday for their practice squad, eight had been members of their preseason squad before being cut in final roster moves.

Ryder Cup wildcard challenge for McGinley and Watson

Ryder Cup captains Paul McGinley and Tom Watson take centre stage on Tuesday when they both name their three wildcard picks to complete their lineups for Gleneagles. McGinley in particular is facing a tough choice with two former world number ones, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, along with the Ryder Cup hero of two years ago Ian Poulter all failing to make it into the nine automatic qualifying slots. Normally they would all be clearcut picks for the Irishman, but complicating the situation is the good form of Scotland's Stephen Gallacher, who narrowly missed out on supplanting Graeme McDowell in the ninth and final qualifying spot by finishing third on Sunday at the Italian Open. McGinley, who played and missed the cut in Turin, was on hand to see how hard Gallacher battled to make the team and he was full of praise for the 39-year-old who lives just 35 miles from Gleneagles and knows the course better than anyone else among the Ryder Cup hopefuls.

World War II: 75th anniversary
September 1 marks the 75th anniversary of the start of World War II. In 1939, Germany invaded Poland. Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Belgium soon came under German control, and when France fell less than a year later, Britain was the only nation left in Western Europe to oppose Adolf Hitler's Third Reich.

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.

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.
