On April 2nd, 14 year old high school freshman from McKinney, Texas, Raymond Howell, Jr, was found dead in a drainage ditch from a gunshot wound. He killed himself. Why you ask would a 14 year old beautiful boy waste his life like that? Police say it was a result of bullying. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among young people, estimating around 4400 deaths a year. Victims of bullying are 2-9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims. When you start digging a little deeper into someone's past, most likely you'll find that they were the victims of bullying at some point in their lives. eWomeNetwork 2014 Humanitarian of the Year, Dr. Audrey Newsome, founded the Bully Suicide Project, in hopes to eradicate bullying.

Climax, the discharge of neuromuscular tension at the height of sexual arousal. Nearly every aspect of the climax-- what's required to have one, why some people can't seem to achieve one, why we have them at all -- has been the subject of much research and debate. What happens to the body during climax is pretty well-known, and it's no surprise that the brain plays a big part in reaching one.
Both men’s and women’s perceptions of their partners’ ideal duration of foreplay and intercourse were found to be more strongly related to their own sexual stereotypes than to their partners’ self-reported sexual desires, suggesting that people rely on sexual stereotypes when estimating their partners’ ideal sexual scripts

"Political science tells us that campaigns are about driving elections towards or away from a natural outcome. When modelers make models, they are trying to predict a ‘natural’ endpoint. There is always the possibility of biasing your actual calculation. Adding in assumptions like fundamentals could be right and could be wrong, but what they represent is basically a hypothesis about where the race ought to be. Making a model like that is a good political science experiment, but we should be clear that we are adding assumptions on top of the polls."Dr Sam Wang
"That model is wrong(Dr Wang's) — not necessarily because it shows Democrats ahead (ours barely shows any Republican advantage), but because it substantially underestimates the uncertainty associated with polling averages and thereby overestimates the win probabilities for candidates with small leads in the polls. This is because instead of estimating the uncertainty empirically — that is, by looking at how accurate polls or polling averages have been in the past — Wang makes several assumptions about how polls behave that don’t check out against the data." Nate Silver
"Political science is Not a science"former President Nixon

So many of us spend our lives low-balling and under-estimating our potential and matches. We end up staying at places of employment too long, staying n relationships too long, and especially staying in our own protected identities too long. I, for one, tend to get scared and look to others for approval as soon as the inspiration shows up to move on, expand, elevate, grown, and go. We make idols of others in order to separate from the love of God within us, our greatest source of self and strength, and take flight. Today, let's discuss our call to action.

In an episode all about the Benjamins, Al and Hookslide cover the fallout from the Tigers' historic contract extension with Miguel Cabrera, Max Scherzer's contract negotiations ending in futility, the acquisition of ancient shortstop Alex Gonzalez and Forbes estimating the team's worth at $680 million.
Bless You Boys Podcast 105 has a running time of 1:03 and features Al Beaton and HookSlide. Kurt Mensching will be back next week.
Tigers, Cabrera formally announce 8-year extension, commit to 10-years and $292 million overall.
MLB execs disgusted over Miguel Cabrera extension.
Fans of advanced metrics are calling the Cabrera extension the worst contract ever. What a surprise!
But is it really that crazy of a contract in retrospect? $30 million may look like chump change in ten years.
Tigers were between a rock and a hard place. Let Cabrera walk in free agency, the fans get upset. Sign the best hiotter in the game to a contract locking him up for the remainder of his career, the fans get upset.
Tigers' GM Dave Dombrowski contended it's better to extend a pending free agent early on the process, believing a player is more likely to leave the longer you wait.
The Tigers may not be all that worried about the long-term ramifications of a contract extension thanks to the ridiculous amount of TV money MLB teams earn.
Max Scherzer and the Tigers cease contract negotiations.
Scherzer's agent Scott Boras claims it was the Tigers who rejected a deal.
Tyler Collins makes the team as a left fielder.
Tigers obtain shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Orioles for utility man Steve Lombardozzi.
Forbes values Tigers at $680 million, 15th overall in MLB. Anyone else think that figure sounds low?
Doug Fister will start the season on the DL. The Tigers win the trade!
