PETS ARE THE BEST: A Beloved Dog, A Stolen Car And...A Happy Ending

(NAPSI)—It started out as a normal day for Mary Harrison—until she briefly left her car running outside of her home with her shih tzu Molly in the backseat and went inside for just a second. When she came back outside, however, her car—and Molly—were gone. She called Verizon to see if her phone could help track her car, and a Verizon customer service representative saved the day. “When Mary called in, I was taken aback with her car and dog being stolen,” said the tech expert who answered the call. “I really felt for her. I work at home and my two dogs are at my feet all day.” They pulled up Harrison’s account and saw that she had a Hum by Verizon device in her car. Hum is a vehicle diagnostic system from Verizon Connect. It takes the guesswork out of driving with connected car technology, so you can... Read more →

YOUR MONEY: What Is Cryptocurrency?

(NAPSI)—Social and traditional media have been abuzz with articles and information about the rising phenomenon of digital currencies. But what does it all mean and should you buy in? What Is Cryptocurrency? Cryptocurrency, or simply crypto, is one type of digital currency. Cryptocurrencies are distinct from “fiat currencies” such as the dollar, euro or yen. Unlike fiat currencies, crypto isn’t represented or organized by physical paper units or coins. Rather, each unit is a unique alphanumeric string of computer code. Also, cryptocurrencies are not issued by a central bank. Instead, they are controlled by technology that determines how many units are produced and how transactions are recorded. While Bitcoin is one of the earliest and most recognized cryptocurrencies, more than 1,000 cryptocurrencies currently exist. For U.S. federal tax purposes, cryptocurrency is treated as property, which means selling or exchanging it can have tax consequences. Cryptocurrencies and Risk Buying, selling and... Read more →

What are the differences between sports betting in NJ and PA?

(October 2, 2020)When it comes to sports betting, the US can be a complex beast. It is, after all, a federal system – and each state can, within certain restrictions, decide on and implement its own laws. Nowhere is this system more obvious than in the arena of sports betting. Ever since the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) was struck down in 2018, it has become increasingly common for states to adopt divergent approaches to the question of sports betting. So what about New Jersey and Pennsylvania? Even though these two states are located close by and share a border across the Delaware River, they have different rules when it comes to placing bets on sports. Which state is better for the average sports bettor, and how do the two shape up? This article will explore further. History of the laws First off, it’s worth pointing out that... Read more →

Who Looks Favorite To Go On And Claim The NBA Championship

(September 8, 2020)--With the NBA season coming to a close and us now into the second round of the playoff, we are starting to get a bit of a better idea on who looks most likely to take home an NBA Finals Ring. Throughout the season, the Lakers have been favorited to win the tournament due to the signing of Anthony Davis who would accompany Lebron James fantastically. The pair have been seriously formidable through the season, and now it’s the playoffs with them tied 1-1 with the Houston Rockets in the series, they look as if they are likely to go through. Although, this wouldn’t be an easy fete as the rockets, headed by James Harden, won’t go down without a fight and are certainly an impressive side; especially when Harden is throwing 3’s from all over the place. The Lakers are currently 11/4 to win the NBA. Congrats... Read more →

Can Pennsylvania’s Emerging Sports Betting Market Hold On? 

Gloucestercitynews.net--APRIL 13,2020–A few short months ago, Philadelphia - along with the whole state of Pennsylvania - was beginning to see the benefits of the sports betting boom that was made possible by the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in 2018. The state wasn't making headway as fast as New Jersey did, but the industry in the region was still approaching the point where it had started to make millions of dollars in tax revenue and was likely to make millions more in the future. New companies were opening up. Existing venues were spending money on adapting themselves to facilitate the new trade. Now, as suddenly as it appeared, sports betting is dead in the water. That isn’t the fault of any of the individual companies, of course. Nor is it the fault of a change in the law, or a change in the way the law is interpreted. . March Madness... Read more →

Grewal and the Division of Consumer Affairs (Division) announced today that the Division has adopted its first set of rules for fantasy sports activities in New Jersey, including rules designed to protect children.

Youth Football: How Young Athletes Are Exposed to High-Magnitude Head Impacts

Newswise — Charlottesville, VA (October 17, 2017). The majority of football players in the US (70%) are elementary and middle school students. These young athletes enthusiastically put on their gear, learn strategy, acquire skills, and participate in games with their peers. Unfortunately, like their professional counterparts these athletes sometimes get injured. Fairly often they sustain head impacts during tackling and blocking maneuvers. Exposure to head impacts in American football has become a national concern: neurocognitive and brain changes can occur from repeated head impacts, even when no evidence of concussion is found. To gain a greater understanding of head impacts, researchers from the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics at Virginia Tech examined exposure to these blows in young athletes, 9 to 12 years of age, during football games and practice drills. Their goal was to determine under what circumstances high-magnitude head impacts (linear or rotational accelerations measuring more than... Read more →

Offense just as much to blame as defense in Eagles loss to Broncos /NJ.com

Eliot Shorr-Parks/NJ.com September 29, 2013 at 8:28:12 PM EDT It was a shoot-out just like everyone expected. Unfortunately for the Eagles, the Broncos did most of the shooting. "The key for us was to keep us in the game offensively," Chip Kelly said after the game. "We didn't do that." The Eagles offense put up just 20 points in their 52-20 loss to the DenverBroncos, with 13 of those points coming in the first three-quarters when the game was still semi-winnable. The defense struggled like everyone expected, but it was the offenses inability to score that played just as big of a role in the team's loss in Denver. "We gotta get our momentum back," Vick said. "We lost it." Sure, the offense put up good numbers- 450 total yards,166 yards of which were on the ground. They also didn't turn the ball over, something they had problems with last... Read more →
