Bears-lions Fantasy Starters: Matt Forte, Matthew Stafford, And Calvin Johnson « Cbs Boston

Now they step up in class against the Lions, who are coming off consecutive losses to the Cardinals and the Pats. Look for Detroit to take its frustrations out on the Bears, and fantasy points should be available for the taking. Bears players QB Jay Cutler While Cutler is often the object of derision among Bears fans because of his tendency to turn the ball over accompanied by his I dont care attitude, hes been a decent fantasy with 2875 yards and 22 touchdowns. However, the Lions have the nastiness and relentlessness on the defensive line to pound Cutler unmercifully. BENCH HIM RB Matt Forte He is the Bears most consistent and best player, and the attack is going to center on him. In addition to getting 20 carries in this game, he should be able to catch at least seven passes. Forte will have at least 100 yards (combined), and he will find his way into the endzone at least once. No team has allowed more running back receptions than the Lions.

Sudden realizations like that can lead to some incredibly satisfying victories, but in the meantime, mistakes are costly. Not only does correcting them eat into your limited supply of moves per turn, but errors tend to get your troops shot down and if an enemy reaches them before you can, they’ll die for good. All this risk adds up to some incredibly satisfying victories, but it also leads to a lot of frustration in the meantime particularly if you realize, halfway through a long and grueling battle, that you’ve been pursuing a wrongheaded strategy the whole time, or left yourself totally unprepared for a second-stage surprise attack. There’s also no auto-saving or checkpoints, although you can save manually at any time, which lets you create little safety nets before risky moves. On the other hand, if you don’t remember to save frequently, failure could fling you right back to the mission’s start. Valkyria is not for rage-quitters.

How To Talk To Your Evangelical Uncle About Marriage Equality

I mean, anyone who reads the Bible knows that you can’t be a Christian and support homosexuality. Okay, that’s a lot. But don’t panic — we’ve got you covered. Here are a few bits of info (including some biblical arguments) you can use to respond to your evangelical uncle’s diatribe: Claims that “religious liberty” is under attack in America are overblown, although the refrain is likely to be repeated ad nauseam by many religious conservatives over the next few years. Many “religious liberty” advocates cheered the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, for instance, where judges ruled that the craft store giant could be granted religious exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate. But despite assertions that the ruling protected all religious groups, a substantial majority of almost every major U.S.

Dolphins-Broncos Preview – Yahoo Sports

Denver is also dealing with a rash of injuries, with Julius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Montee Ball having been sidelined. The Broncos also haven’t been able to run the ball, totaling 43 and 28 yards on the ground in the two most recent defeats.

Receivers key on Sunday? Plus Duron Carter & more Marshawn – Seahawks Draft Blog

A growing criticism this year is the performance of the wide receivers. Good enough last year, the group suddenly looks a little more pedestrian without Percy Harvin, Golden Tate and Zach Miller. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse are good players. But neither provides a mismatch in single coverage, wherever they line up. Neither are they adept at just finding a way to get open. With Seattles passing game being naturally conservative, Wilson has always played with an element of caution.

Israelis, Palestinians Look To Personal Safety In Holy City On Edge – Yahoo News

Israeli officials insist it is not a new, tightly organized Palestinian uprising and cannot be compared with the Intifada that raged from 2000 to 2005, during which suicide bombers blew up Israeli buses and cafes and the Israeli army invaded West Bank cities. For the most part, security guards who tried to prevent and often died in such bombings are no longer posted at the entrance to restaurants and stores in Jerusalem, but they are a lingering presence outside its main indoor shopping mall. So when Ayala, a 39-year-old Israeli teacher, wanted to have coffee with a friend on Wednesday, the complex offered a safe haven. “We’re going on with our lives but with much more caution. We are afraid of the Arabs,” said Ayala, who declined to give her last name. “It’s deja vu.

Maryland School District Takes Religious Holidays Off Calendar – Cbs News

Instead they voted to wipe away all religious holidays from the 2015-2016 school calendar. “The Muslim community is the only one who has to choose between education and religion,” Hannah Shraim said.

The eleventh-grader also takes her studies very seriously. “Hannah is a straight-A student,” her mother May said. “If she misses one day of school she has a panic attack.” “It’s like missing a week of school,” Hannah said.

Islamic State faces war of attrition in Syria’s Kobane – Yahoo News

View gallery A Kurdish Peshmerga fighter talks on a phone during fighting against Islamic State (IS) group in the IS took over dozens of villages surrounding Kobane, known in Arabic as Ain al-Arab, besieging the town’s Kurdish fighters.

The jihadists, equipped with advanced weaponry seized from Iraqi and Syrian troops, then fought their way into central Kobane.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, more than 600 jihadists and nearly 370 Kurdish fighters have died in the battle for Kobane.

Amid Russian Incursion, President Says Ukraine Ready To Defend Itself – Europe – Stripes

In two recent months, we have elaborated and implemented serious steps on the preparation of our armed forces and other units to defend Ukraine. Poroshenko was referring to the period since a cease-fire was negotiated between his government and Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. Both sides have repeatedly accused the other of violating the agreement since it was reached Sept. 5 in Minsk, Belarus. In case the developments are contrary to the Minsk plan, the armed forces of Ukraine will be able and ready to rebuff, Poroshenko said, adding that his government still preferred to reach a peaceful resolution to the rebellion in the east. Four Ukrainian servicemen were killed and several wounded Thursday in clashes with the separatists, officials said. The fighting here continues every day, Ukraine airborne trooper Mikhail Kucherenko, who is helping defend the government-held airport in the eastern city of Donetsk, said in a phone interview.

Posted: Tuesday, November 4, 2014 1:41 pm Portville wins Sec. 6 volleball D-1 title 0comments JAMESTOWN Six years after winning its last sectional title, the Portville Central School girls volleyball team is celebrating again. On the same floor where they dropped a heartbreaking four-set finale to Randolph last year, the Panthers captured the Section 6 Class D-1 title Monday night at Jamestown Community College with a gutsy 25-23, 23-25, 25-18, 25-17 win over top-seeded Chautauqua Lake. We struggled at the beginning, I think partly because of all the excitement and being back at JCC, Portville coach Kelly Unverdorben said. But we kind of found our way as the match went on and by the third set we took off and starting playing our game. The Panthers, who were seeded third, improved to 18-2 overall. Theyll now play North Collins in the sections Class D crossover game and regional qualifier.

Garrard outlast West Carter 52-36 in 3A playoffs – The Advocate Messenger: High School Sports

Col. Sawarmi Khalid told The Associated Press that the attack started when the man argued with the guards outside the palace because he wanted to pass into a secured area. When the guards prevented him from passing, Khalid said, the man stabbed a guard with a sharp object, then seized a rifle and started firing. The shooting left two guards dead, and prompted others to return fire and shoot the man, Khalid said. The semi-official Sudan Media Center website said the unidentified man approached palace guards with a knife, stabbing one and snatching his weapon, before opening fire at the same guard and another. Presidential spokesman Emad Sid Ahmed confirmed the attack to the state news agency SUNA. Khalid said the man, a native of conflict-riddled Kordofan province, had no known political affiliation.
