NewsHub 14 November 2019Family First Comment: This study is our warning – public health worsens – by how much we don’t know – so given that we don’t know, why even put the question to Kiwis in a referendum? Why are we even contemplating this change? Stick your “OK boomer” phrase Chloe Swarbrick and start to digest the inconvenient truth – your support for a law change is misguided and irresponsible – your position might even steal someone’s childhood. It’s time to accept the facts and step outside your echo chamber of yes men and sycophants.#saynopetodopeOPINION: It’s official. Legalising weed means more people smoke it, more often and addiction rates go up, starting with kids as young as 12.Be careful what we wish for folks, this is our future staring at us in the face if we are not careful.One of the world’s most respected cannabis researchers has compared half a million people by looking at what happens when an American state legalises weed for recreational use compared to states that don’t.And at every age level in every cohort, every race, creed or LGBT plus any ABCDEFG I’ve left off – where the green herb got the green light – they all got lit alright.Dependency increased, and of real concern 12-17 year olds had the worst results of all the different age groups surveyed.There are more addictions and more people smoking it more frequently – especially men in their 20s.So overall, there are more health issues as a result.READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/11/duncan-garner-legalising-weed-could-cause-teen-addiction-to-skyrocket.html
“I’ve been in a lot of situations throughout my career — where I was helping a young guy or serving as a stopgap kind of guy or being part of a rebuilding situation — so to come to a situation where it was more established, where they’ve got the quarterback (Carson Wentz) and a veteran defense and a lot of good players on the offense, that to me was enticing.”The Eagles have two preseason games remaining before they face the Redskins in Week 1 action Sept. 8. Nate Sudfeld injury update: Eagles No. 2 QB (broken wrist) has surgery, expected back in 6 weeks, report says Eagles signing veteran QB Josh McCown to 1-year deal McCown spent the last two seasons with the Jets, appearing in 17 games and throwing 19 touchdown passes. He announced he was stepping away from football in mid-June but changed his mind when the Eagles became interested in signing him.“It was an easy sell, to be quite honest,” McCown said (via the Eagles’ official website). “More than anything, it was the comfort level I had talking with Doug (Pederson), where they’re trying to take this thing and where they’re trying to get back to and understanding the expectations that they have here. Pederson discussed the team’s decision to add the 16-year veteran when he met with reporters Sunday.”It kind of falls in line with not only the injury situation, but also the fact that when we have an opportunity to add a little value, add a little depth, add a little competition to that spot, a veteran guy who has been around the league,” Pederson said. “I’ve said this all along, the quarterback position is not immune to any of this, so that’s why we did it.” Related News Doug Pederson thinks Josh McCown will be an asset for the Eagles, even if he never steps on the field.The 40-year-old quarterback came out of retirement and inked a one-year deal with Philadelphia this weekend after backups Nate Sudfeld and Cody Kessler suffered injuries in the preseason.
2020 Fantasy Baseball Rankings:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Starter | Reliever | Top 300You’re going to be making a lot of decisions like that with your outfielders. The big power-speed guys will go within the first five or six picks of the draft — and then there are a host of big-time sluggers who will go throughout the next couple rounds — but as soon as guys like Starling Marte and Austin Meadows are nearing the top of your queue, you know you have some decisions to make in regards to balancing out your roster. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Tiers, Draft Strategy:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | RelieverLike the corner infield spots, you’ll always be able to find solid homer upside with outfield, even deep into your draft. Finding the guy who who would hit 37 HRs instead of 25 over a full season is what often separates the top tier from the middling teams, and unfortunately, it’s not easy to do. Luck is certainly involved to some degree, but finding guys with clear(ish) paths to playing time and decent peripheral stats goes a long way. It’s also worth taking some chances at this position with your final starter/bench spots because there will always be worthwhile pickups available throughout the year. Fantasy Baseball Draft Strategies: Auction | Keeper/Dynasty | PointsAs always, the players listed below are ranked as if they’re only eligible at OF. Players eligible at multiple positions may be ranked higher in our overall rankings. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfielder | Starter | Each teamWe’ll be updating our OF rankings as needed, so check back for the latest player movement. DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2020 Fantasy Baseball Cheat SheetFantasy Baseball OF RankingsRankings based on 5×5 H2H leagues with Rs, HRs, RBIs, SBs, and batting average as categories Few preseason fantasy baseball tasks are more difficult than putting together OF rankings. Starting pitcher and closer rankings are also tough, but at least we know they’re an exercise in futility even as we’re compiling them. Outfield is different because it feels like a code we can crack (even though we can’t). There are so many players, from all-around studs to one-category sleepers, spread throughout the various tiers, that outfield is really a position that needs its own cheat sheet heading into 2020 drafts. Once you get past the top 20 or so OFs, how you’re building your specific team is really more important than how the players are ranked below. We might think Kyle Schwarber’s overall impact will be slightly higher than Ramon Laureano’s, but if you need some steals and a higher average, Laureano probably makes more sense for you.
