    cbskapost
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:20 pm
    By Jordan Tracy The 2013 season wasn’t the best season for some players around the league. For example, former Texans and now Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub had an awful year which resulted in losing his job. He was coming off a great year going into 2013 where the team went 12-4 and he threw for 4,000 yards and 22 touchdowns. Players have off years and sometimes they just fall off. The following players didn’t have great 2013 season, but I believe,(and hope),  that they’ll bounce back in 2014. Here is my list of five players who will have a bounce back season: 5.

Mayoral spokesman Kevin Acklin tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the city dropped its lawsuit in hopes the city and UPMC can craft an agreement for nonprofits to invest in city neighborhoods. Former Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s administration sued UPMC, claiming the network didn’t “act” like a nonprofit and therefore shouldn’t enjoy tax-exempt status. UPMC countered by suing the city in…

    The patrolling area of Campo Station in Pine Valley, Calif., covers 13.1 linear miles of the border and 417.8 square miles in total. Much of it is largely undeveloped and contains one of the most rugged and difficult areas patrol, with dense vegetation, deserts and mountains that exceed 6,500 feet. Much of the terrain can only be accessed by all-terrain vehicles or by foot. For the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Border Patrol officers aiming to contain illegal immigration and drug and human trafficking, this poses a tough challenge.

    The demand for skilled manipulation of video has grown in recent years as we continue to attempt to do more with less. Amateur filmmakers, small business owners and the average Joe don’t have access to teams of videographers, studio-quality equipment and dozens of editing bays to produce original content. Oftentimes, smaller firms have to rely on blending original content with stock video. Once you own stock video, it’s possible to pick and choose the footage that works best to augment your digital messages. You’ll often need to find general, clip art images to insert into your…

    Among the rusted ruins of the Carrie Furnaces stands a behemoth of a sculpture known as the Carrier Deer. Since 1997, this 40-foot tall deer head created from remnants of the former Blast Furnace Plant has played an artistic homage to the remarkable natural powers of reclamation that have taken hold of the site since its closure in the 1980s. However, just as time and nature have slowly deteriorated the Carrie Furnace, time is slowly taking a toll on the Carrier Deer as well. To help preserve this Pittsburgh treasure, The Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area is holding an…

Too well, even, because the darn stuff dropped seeds all over the place. This year I'm completely overrun in lettuce, and I didn't plant any.
