Play ‘Em Sam Bradford: Bradford has looked impressive as a rookie so far this season. Last week against Seattle, he threw for 289 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. This week, Bradford faces a Detroit defense that ranks 26th in passing defense and has allowed at least two touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in three of its first four games. If you’re looking for a bye-week quarterback, consider Bradford. Eli Manning: Last week against Chicago, Manning threw for 195 yards and no touchdowns, but the Giants’ defense was the main focus. This week, Manning faces an awful Texans secondary. Look for Manning to rebound against a defense that allows 338 yards passing per game. Jamaal Charles: Charles has scored one touchdown in his 2010 campaign, but look for success this week against the Colts. Through four games, running backs have averaged 22 points in standard scoring leagues against the Colts’ defense. Charles will continue to split carries with Thomas Jones, but Charles’ seven yards per carry is worth noting. Mark Clayton: It’s hard to believe how well Clayton has fit so well in the Rams’ system after being traded from Baltimore. Clayton caught five passes for 72 yards last week against Seattle, but was targeted 14 times. He will continue to be consistent against a Lions defense that surrenders 27 points per game. Marques Colston: It’s time to wake up, Marques. Colston has been irrelevant in the Saints’ passing game this season, with 190 receiving yards in four games. Believe it or not, Colston hasn’t had more than 70 yards in a game. Expect Colston to find the end zone against a subpar Cardinals defense. In his last game against Arizona, Colston had eight catches for 114 yards with a touchdown. Bench ‘Em Carson Palmer: Last week, Palmer threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns. However, the Bengals trailed early, which allowed Palmer to air it out. Palmer’s next challenge is to face a Tampa Bay passing defense that ranks 10th in the league. The Bengals will utilize the running game, since that has been Tampa Bay’s weakness. Darren McFadden: McFadden is battling a hamstring injury that could cost him a start this week. Whether McFadden is healthy or not, look for Michael Bush to get a majority of the carries. The Chargers hold their own against the run and McFadden’s last game against San Diego wasn’t impressive, as he had just 68 yards and lost a fumble. Terrell Owens: Owens shocked us all with his performance last week, 222 yards and a touchdown. For those of you trying to get on the T.O. bandwagon, get off. Owens will continue to be mediocre as the Bengals try to find an identity on offense. LaDainian Tomlinson: As expected, Tomlinson had a monster game against Buffalo, with 133 yards and two touchdowns. This week the Jets face a Vikings unit that allows 87 rushing yards per game and is coming off a bye. The Vikings will crowd the box and force Mark Sanchez to make plays downfield. The Vikings haven’t allowed a touchdown to an opposing running back in their last two games.
Ohio State defensive lineman Nathan Williams will likely miss the remainder of the season, first-year OSU head coach Luke Fickell announced Tuesday. Williams, a senior, has been out of action since injuring his left knee against Akron on Sept. 3 and undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Sept. 14. Fickell said Williams will “probably have another surgery” but offered very few details in regard to the situation. “I don’t know much more,” Fickell said. “It looks like (Williams) is done for the season.” Williams led the Buckeyes with 4.5 sacks in 2010. He was also effective dropping into pass coverage last year, tallying three passes defended and recording an interception. In 2011, he was named to the preseason watch list for the Ted Hendricks Award, given to the nation’s best defensive end. Former OSU head coach John Cooper told The Lantern Tuesday that he feels Williams is possibly the Buckeyes’ best player. “I think we got some really, really bad news today regarding Nate Williams,” Cooper said. “(He), in my opinion, arguably might have been our best football player.” As far as the effect Williams’ absence has had, and will have on the Buckeyes defense, Fickell turned the focus to moving on. “He hasn’t played since the first game,” Fickell said. “It’s a part of the game. Sometimes when you figure out what you’re going with, it might make you better, too. “We’re not going to sit and dwell upon it.” Senior linebacker Tony Jackson said that although the team would obviously want to have Williams back, it must press forward. “We’d like to have him back,” Jackson said. “If he could go, we’d definitely have him in there. But if he can’t go, we’ve got to go on without him. We can’t just stop because we lost one player or something happened. We’ve got to keep moving on.” Under NCAA bylaw 14.2.4, Williams would be able to apply for a hardship waiver, which could grant him an extra year of eligibility. According to the bylaw, a player is eligible to apply if he or she suffers an “incapacitating injury or illness” during the first half of the team’s season, and competes in no more than three games or 30 percent of the team’s games, whichever is greater. OSU will continue play without Williams on Saturday at Illinois’ Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30p.m. and will be televised on ABC.
As of Sunday, there had been over 1,400 recorded aftershocks of any magnitude; 593 of magnitude 2.0 or greater; 17 that registered at least 4.0; and five that were at least 5.0. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享There have been over 1,400 aftershocks measured by the U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake Science Center since Friday’s 7.0 earthquake that shook southcentral Alaska. At a press conference on Sunday in Anchorage Falsey reassured everyone – things appeared to be calming down: “The aftershocks have thankfully been tapering off.” An aftershock stronger or as strong as the initial one is unlikely, however. The probability for an earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher before December 8 is only 3 percent, said the USGS. Anchorage Municipal Manager Bill Falsey: “More than a dozen of those aftershocks have been greater than a magnitude of four, and five of them have been greater than a magnitude of five. Every one of those in a normal course would have been a real, no-kidding Alaska earthquake. For a lot of people, this event has not ended. “

Kolkata: A research team at IIT-Kharagpur is developing a mobile application which can monitor day-to- day activities and smoking habits of an individual and make suitable recommendations. The sensor-based health app will send alerts to the user, warning him about his unhealthy lifestyle choices, an IIT-KGP statement said Thursday. The new tracking kit, being developed by Rajendra Mishra School of Engineering Entrepreneurship at IIT- Kharagpur, can also go a long way in gauging addictive and depressive behaviour, it said.

The application can also monitor call and message logs and smartphone usage,” the statement said. Ram Babu Roy, assistant professor at (RMSoEE), said the application will provide personalized services after data analysis. “We did a pilot study on four participants. The research team collected GPS data as well other location-based information and took note of their physical movement. It helped us create health and behavioural profiles of the individuals,” Roy, who is leading project, said. The app will be able to process data in different environments and demarcate between “normal and abnormal activities”, he added.
