Takeaways: Sharks respond to ‘kick in the butt’ from management

first_imgSAN JOSE — Brenden Dillon called the shakeup in the Sharks coaching staff a “kick in the butt” Wednesday morning.More than anything, the move to put Steve Spott in charge of the defense, David Barr in control of the forwards and Rob Zettler as the eye in the sky sent the team a message. A shuffle up in the coach’s office is usually the last card management plays before heads start rolling with a trade or someone getting fired. Things are getting urgent after a 1-3-1 road trip last week.The …last_img read more

“Old Guys Dig Young Women” & Other Creepy Facts from OKCupid

first_imgLast year, we ruffled a few feathers when we posted some OKCupid data on dating and race. We’re sure this latest news is going to be equally unpopular, but the data support the conclusions, so here we go.Women users of the online dating site state a range of preferred ages for partners that is relatively normal, and when it comes to reaching out to other users, they stay pretty strictly within their own self-imposed guidelines. However, men on the site continue to state a preference for 20-something girls well into their later years. And even when male users state a cut-off age, they continue to contact women who are below that age. Culture of sexual exploitation or personal preference? Check out the graphs below and let us know what you think in the comments.For starters, OKCupid’s blog states, “Men between 22 and 30 – nearly two-thirds of the male dating pool – focus almost exclusively on women younger than themselves… A man, as he gets older, searches for relatively younger and younger women. Meanwhile his upper acceptable limit hovers only a token amount above his own age.”Here’s what that looks like in a graph format: Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Here’s where the plot thickens: Stated age preferences are fine and dandy, but how different genders actually interact with potential dates of varying ages belies male users’ statements about who they’re really looking to meet.Here’s a heat map overlaid with the women’s stated age preferences. You can see that, with striking regularity, women mean it when they say they want to find a partner within a given age range: Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Digital Lifestyle#web As you can see, the data show that 29-year-old women generally stop messaging significantly younger men.Now, here’s the data on men’s messaging habits: 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market To some, this graph might look like an episode of Cougartown. But the folks at OKCupid feel that “older” women get a bad rap in the online dating world – one that they don’t necessarily deserve.What’s your experience or opinion on the matter? Let us know in the comments. jolie odell Related Posts The men in this study consistently reached out to the youngest of the women in their preference range – which already heavily favors younger women. Moreover, they don’t cut themselves off at their stated minimum age preference. “No matter what he’s telling himself on his setting page,” reads the OKCupid blog, “a 30-year-old man spends as much time messaging 18- and 19-year-olds as he does women his own age.”Taking into account this data about sexual desirability and women’s responses to frank questions about sex acts and exploration, the OKCupid researchers determined a socio-sexual sweet spot for men to consider: Women, on the other hand, display an “admirable openness to both reasonably younger and reasonably older men,” with the exception of early-20s young women who generally prefer to date slightly older young men.

‘Conte too smart to take Milan job’

first_imgAntonio Conte ‘Conte too smart to take Milan job’ – Ex-Inter chairman Moratti doubts Chelsea exit Chris Burton Last updated 1 year ago 19:22 12/5/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Antonio Conte Getty Images Antonio Conte Serie A José Mourinho Chelsea Internazionale Milan Premier League The former Nerazzurri supremo has taken a sly dig at his old rivals, while also comparing current Inter boss Luciano Spalletti to Jose Mourinho Antonio Conte is a “smart guy” and would not walk away from Chelsea to take the AC Milan reins, says Massimo Moratti.Having previously admitted that he intends to head home at some stage, the Blues’ Italian boss is now being linked with every high-profile post which becomes available.Conte was previously touted for a second spell in charge of the Italy national side, following their failure to reach the 2018 World Cup, while the departure of Vincenzo Montella in Milan has seen his name thrown into the hat at the San Siro. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Former Inter chairman Moratti is not convinced a move will be made, though, with a man who tasted Premier League title success in 2016-17 a better fit for the Nerazzurri than the Rossoneri.He told Gazzetta dello Sport on Conte: “He is a great manager, the only difference with [Luciano] Spalletti is that Spalletti has yet to win a Serie A title, Conte has already won league titles in Italy and in England.“If he’d joined Inter and failed it would have been Inter’s fault.“A move to AC Milan? No, I don’t think so, he is a smart guy.”While taking a sly dig at Inter’s arch-rivals and the struggles they are currently enduring, Moratti has taken great pleasure in talking up his former employers.Luciano Spalletti InterInter sit top of the Serie A table at present, with Spalletti’s arrival as manager over the summer considered to have been the catalyst for a title tilt.Moratti considers the former Roma and Zenit boss to be among the best in the business and a man capable of emulating the success enjoyed at Inter by former treble winner Jose Mourinho.“I’d never give him advice,” Moratti said of Spalletti. “I’ve explained to him the mentality of an interista fan, but he already knew it.“I also wanted to hire him but I never managed to in the past. We were very close after the treble but he chose Zenit instead.“He can read the players’ mind just like Mourinho. Players like Ranocchia, Santon and Brozovic are reborn.”Spalletti has also been able to bring the best out of Ivan Perisic, with the Croatian winger having been talked out of a possible summer move to Manchester United to commit to fresh terms in Italy.“He is so strong, he has strength and quality,” added Moratti.“I don’t see better wingers in Europe right now but he needs to have consistency. Spalletti was very important for him because he blocked his exit last summer.”last_img read more

NASA Rolling Stones Robert Downey Jr secret is out They named a

first_img 15 Photos Mars oddities NASA, the Rolling Stones and Robert Downey Jr. are up to something NASA Curiosity rover did not find a damn robot leg on Mars NASA spots odd heart-shaped objects on Mars and beyond Sci-Tech Comment The Rolling Stones Rock name is informal, but NASA says it will appear on working maps of the planet.Perhaps this will inspire Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to rework some of their classic songs, like If You Can’t Mars Rock Me, Street Fighting Martian or Paint It Red (Planet). “I’ve seen a lot of Mars rocks over my career,” said NASA geologist Matt Golombek. “This one probably won’t be in a lot of scientific papers, but it’s definitely one of the coolest.”Downey agrees. “Sometimes the world does seriously cool stuff,” he tweeted after the reveal.NASA shared a hype video showing an animation of InSight landing on Mars set to the tune of the Stones’ It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It). center_img NASA Space Hello “@RollingStones Rock” Who could hang a name on you? Um… us!When @NASAInsight touched down on the Red Planet, its engines sent a rock rolling across Mars’ surface. We named it for the band.

NASA/JPL-Caltech Some day a long time from now, an astronaut tour guide may step out onto the dusty surface of the Red Planet, point to a small stone just beyond NASA’s silent InSight lander and announce, “And that, my friends, is Rolling Stones Rock.”Let’s just let that sink in. There is now a rock on Mars that’s known as “Rolling Stones Rock.” rollingstonesrockEnlarge ImageForget Tumbling Dice. We’ve got a tumbling Mars rock. NASA/JPL-Caltech The Stones took to the stage in Pasedena, California on Thursday night for the band’s No Filter tour. The Rose Bowl venue is close to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Somehow Robert Downey Jr. got entangled in all of this. The Iron Man actor made the Mars rock announcement before the band played.It all started with a mysterious teaser video from Downey earlier on Thursday. “This may be the most exciting thing I’ve ever done,” Downey said, which may be the overstatement of the year. It’s not just any old Mars rock. NASA’s InSight lander touched down on the planet in November 2018. The machine’s thrusters disturbed the golf ball-sized rock, sending it rolling 3 feet (1 meter) across the ground.”It’s the farthest NASA has seen a rock roll while landing a spacecraft on another planet,” the space agency said in a release on Thursday. An image of the rock shows the trail it left behind on the dusty ground.last_img read more
