Talking fantasy gamers out of Martavis Bryant is like convincing a woman to leave the man she loves.
The siren's song of statistical extrapolation leads to sub-optimal fantasy football decision manking.
Martavis Bryant has yet to be an every-down contributor either at Clemson or in Pittsuburgh.
The extreme dichotomy between Martavis Bryant's efficiency metrics is confusing.
Martavis Bryant posted an outstanding Yards Per Target paired with a below average Catch Rate in 2014.
When efficiency metrics strongly conflict, analyzing game tape becomes valuable.

Some people would rather die than speak in front a group of people. Yet it is important for Entrepreneurs to be able to communicate effectively about the product or services they offer to groups of people. I have been speaking in front of people since the age of three when I delivered my line in a church Tom Thumb Wedding. I guess I had a talent for public speaking, or at least I didn't let fear keep me from the spotlight. One of the things I enjoyed most about Pastoral Ministry was delivering the Sunday Morning Sermon and I trained church members in the fine art of sermon delivery In this episode I want to share with you a few things I believe can help you be an effictive public speaker.
In this episode you will:
Understand that fear is your friend;
Understand ways to emotionally prepare yourself to speak in public;
Understand how to use your Diaphragm effectively when speaking in public.

We're back, and we've got an entire hour devoted to talking about the Burnley match. N'Zogbia sure was a weird left back choice, right? And how about that time when... uh... actually I don't even really remember the Burnley match. And we're barely touching on it this week.
Well because the is FA Cup final week. We're here to take a look at everything surrounding Saturday's trip to Wembley. What do Villa have to do to beat Arsenal? Can we finally score a goal on the Gunners this year? Will we be able to liit their damage to fewer than the four goals they've averaged against us.
To help us figure this all out, we've got Travis King from The Short Fuse to give us a bit of an Arsenal perspective. Don't worry, we checked. He's a decent human being.
Inspired by a profound healing experience, in 2002, Mary Anne began studying the teachings of the medicine wheel and the healing power of the drum. Although she remained in doubt about her path, she continued to receive messages that it was her time to share her healing gifts. Following the messages, in 2006 she organized her first drum circle. Turning out to be a success, it opened the doors to on-going request for gatherings and an ever-growing and evolving shamanic healing and teaching practice.
As the founder of, Toning the Om, Mary Anne teaches and guides heart-opening and truth-inspiring meditations, workshops, retreats, and intensives throughout the US. Her most popular retreat, Wild Cosmic Heart, invites one to “explore your untamed heart and risk becoming more alive”. As a channeler of the White Mesa lineage, she focuses on “sharing one’s greatest light”. She is a certified Life and Organizational Coach from New York University and has worked with nonprofit organizations for more than 22 years.

By following her heart, even in times of great doubt and darkness, she inspires us to live from a space of truth and love. Her teachings are rooted in rich personal experience and guidance from Spirit opening us to our unique beauty from within!

IFBB Hall of Fame Professional Bodybuilder Flex Wheeler believes that his willingness to be vulnerable and openly share his struggles with the world is a sometimes a weakness. However, that didn't hold him back from telling his compelling life story during this podcast.
Flex talks about some of the very best contest appearances, events and feelings that he experienced as a bodybuilder--and what he's doing these days as a driven businessman.
Wheeler explains why he feels that the camaraderie, connection, and competitiveness among the Gold's Gym Venice bodybuilders of the 90s made a much tighter group than the legendary closeness among Arnold Schwarzenegger and the "Pumping Iron" crew back in the 70s. He also reveals who was the real leader of the 90s bodybuilding stars back then. His answer will surprise you.
The bodybuilding legend discusses the challenges he had growing up dealing with the childhood trauma of sexual abuse and low self esteem. He also talks about the suicidal thoughts that's he's battled most of his life and how they have only subsided a little over a decade ago.

Control is one of those things we believe can or will make things better. Yet control is very stressful for us and others who are affected by control. Why do we feel we need control and how do we respond to control of us. Control of us takes the thinking off of our part at times, yet control also limits our thinking and limits our outcomes. How to recognise when too much control is too much and how do we take the pressures we put on ourselves to outdo, win, do better than, use others through control off of us and off of our lives. Tune in and Join in on the Conversation Tomorrow Morning at 5:30 AM, PST!
Do you remember the Transformers? Autobots vs the Decepticons. The Autobots' mission is to "wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons." What an awesome cartoon series that became one of Hollywoods best movie series franchises. In the original theme song the lyrics inform us that they are "more than meets the eye".
The same is true for you. There is more to you than meets the eye. On today's edition of Your Blueprint for Life we continue to talk about change. You have been transformed into something great.
Over the past 30 years, I must have studied enough on my own to become a Rhodes Scholar but I attained no degrees, short of the minimum requirement–a high school diploma–in 1974. More than this degree in society’s de-education of my intelligence was too much to bear. The price for a further dulling of intelligence required I assume too many others’ degrees of BS, BMs, acidic PhDs of borrowed knowledge. Thus after a number of interesting adventures, nervous breakthroughs and jumps into the unknown, I currently, and somewhat cheekishly, go by the title “Rogue” scholar.
I define myself this way because I am in rebellion with education in general. I see it as the root cause of perpetuating fossilized traditions and human misery. I specifically rebel against the famous dictum ‘those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.’
I propose that those who teach the lessons of history have done a lousy job and therefore have doomed us to repeat the lessons of history.
We teach each new generation to repeat the past and call it the future and that past is full of false promises, aggression and war. The costumes and technology may change but essentially the same fearful, judgmental, aggressive and warmongering human pathologies are spoon fed to the young until they turn green with it and believe as they are told that this color of prejudiced perception is ‘normal.’ If war, and aggression is to end, then programming each new generation to repeat the past has to end. I therefore strive in my books on past and future history to expose the taken-for-granted flaws in perception.
I have written 18 books and counting on the tradition of prophecy; in other words, the ancient fascination half baked with true paranormal intuition, topped with good educated guesses. They have been printed and passed out 1.3 million copies published in 19 languages.
