GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for July 5, 2017.

College Crosse News.

Teddy Jenner (@OffTheCrosseBar) talked to Former President, Governor, & GM of the Colorado Mammoth, Steve Govett, on the Off The Crosse Bar podcast last night.

This was a very interesting podcast. Around the 5 minute mark Teddy brings up Marisa’s recent post about the NLL planning to expand to Philly & San Diego, and discusses the post and Marisa’s background in-depth. I think Teddy did a fair and mostly favorable review of Marisa’s post and her work as a journalist. Moreover, I appreciate the fact that he took her post seriously and actually gave it its due.

Teddy’s conversation with Mr. Govett starts around the 10 minute mark. I don’t want to cloud your opinion before you listen to the podcast, but I will say I was disappointed with how Mr. Govett characterized Marisa’s work. I never heard an actual denial from him that he wasn’t going to be working in San Diego, and for the most part we only got ad hominem attacks about bloggers.

Marisa’s work needs no defending as it was a well researched piece. She worked on this article for 2-3 days before it was posted, she had several reliable sources before it went up, and she continued to work on the story in the days since it was posted on July 2nd.

Great article about “generational talent” Ryan Brown.

He joined Charlotte last year after a standout career at Hopkins, where he finished as the Blue Jays' second-time leading goal scorer with 159.

"He's the best shooter I've ever been around," Stagnitta said. "His shot is very accurate and fast. He has the ability to get shots off quickly and get them off in tight areas. It's nothing like I have ever seen before — his array of shots."

Charlotte general manager Mike Cerino agrees.

"He is kind of a generational talent," he said. "He is that outstanding a shooter with both hands. He is like watching (Golden State guard) Stephen Curry. He always seems to be in the right place to get his shot off."

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was in Margate this weekend.

Downbeach has become quite the magnet for D.C. politicos this summer. Over Memorial Day weekend, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, who owns a bright yellow three story beach block house in Ventnor’s St. Leonard’s Tract neighborhood, was spotted on the beach in Ventnor (with Secret Service detail), at Jerry Blavat’s Memories in Margate (natch), and at Johnny’s, a popular restaurant in Margate.

This past Fourth of July weekend, Conway, the South Jersey bred daughter of a casino worker mother, was busy in the Hamptons, according to reports, attending a party given by Washington Post editor Lally Weymouth (along with Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Chuck Schumer, Carl Icahn, Steven Spielberg, David Koch and George Soros.) But back in Margate was none other than Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose letter was cited by President Trump as the rationale for firing FBI chief James Comey, but who then appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 campaign.

Alaska is wild, yo!: Armed 11-year-old boy saves uncle from charging bear.

Quick action from a Hoonah boy saved a fishing party from a charging brown bear on June 18, the Empire has learned through Alaska State Troopers and family members. It was the first Defense of Life or Property (DLP) killing in the Hoonah area this year, according to trooper spokesperson Megan Peters.

Apple wants to use your face instead of your fingerprint from now on.

Yesterday, a leak from one of the most reliable Apple rumor sleuths claimed that the iPhone 8 won’t feature a fingerprint scanner integrated into the display. That feature has been expected for some time. But if a new report is correct, it seems that fingerprints are going to be replaced with 3D facial recognition. Citing people familiar with the product who did not want to be named, Bloomberg reports that Apple is currently testing whole face 3D scanning with the goal of integrating it into the upcoming iPhone 8. A new 3D sensor is said to be the backbone of the technology and iris scanning may also be a feature.
