USA Today thinks Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is the best in the game. The publication recently released its list of the best passers in college football, and it’s hard to argue with the top spots. (RELATED: Clemson Football Coach Dabo Swinney Gets $93 Million Extension)Lawrence came in first, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was second, Oregon’s Justin Herbert was third, Sam Ehlinger of Texas was fourth and Georgia passer Jake Fromm was fifth.

They’ll say Tua should be in the top spot and Fromm should also be a top-three talent. They’re naturally wrong, especially on the Alabama count.There’s not much space between three and five, but let’s not pretend for a second like Lawrence isn’t the best player at the position in the country. He brutalized … [Read more...] about USA Today Names Trevor Lawrence The Best Quarterback In College Football

In a rare public display of the alleged bias against female and minority tech workers, the Department of Labor is set to make its case in a hearing beginning Thursday that Oracle underpaid women, Asians and black employees working in certain roles at its Silicon Valley headquarters by $401 million over the course of four years, one of the largest federal anti-discrimination cases to go before a judge.

A trade group representing Christmas tree growers made headlines this month by noting that tree production is down in 2019. The proximate cause of the slump, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, traces back to the Great Recession, when farmers cut back on plantings amid sluggish sales. But the industry as a whole is facing a much bigger challenge. According to the USDA's Census of Agriculture, Christmas tree production fell nearly 30 percent from 2017 to 2002, the earliest year for which data is available. National surveys point to the reason: Each year, fewer Americans are putting up trees during the holidays. And those who do are increasingly choosing artificial ones. Aging baby boomers are driving much of this shift, as they opt for the convenience of plastic trees that can be reused year after year. The USDA's census best conveys the scope of the challenge facing the natural tree industry. In 2002, farmers harvested close to 21 million trees. By 2017 that figure … [Read more...] about Boomers have outgrown real Christmas trees
