As much as we talk about Big Ben and all the stuff he does down the field, they want to run the ball and that offensive line is running... Bouncy in the middle is an amazing center. You can go first this time, Pittsburgh's.

The No. 10 Florida State Seminoles kept pace in the ACC regular-season title race Saturday, as they defeated the No. 12 Louisville Cardinals 73-68 at the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee, Florida. With the victory, FSU improved to 18-2 overall and 6-1 in the conference, which ties it atop the standings with North Carolina and Notre Dame. The Cardinals fell to 16-4 overall and just 4-3 in ACC play, but they have a favorable schedule on the horizon. According to ESPN Stats Info , the win marked Florida State's sixth of the season against an AP Top 25 opponent, which leaves it one shy of tying the school's single-season record. Tim Linafelt of Seminoles.com put FSU's recent string of success into perspective: Both teams struggled from the field as they each shot under 40 percent, but Florida State's 36 free-throw attempts to Louisville's 24 may have made the biggest difference.

4. Hire a Guide for Tours and Excursions While I'll typically run from guided tours in most countries, it can be helpful to hire a guide if you plan to tour Dakar or take excursions, especially if your French is on the weak side. For a reliable, English-speaking guide, I'd recommend contacting Moussa (+221 779180534, moisethiaw@yahoo.fr), or for a reliable Spanish-speaking guide, Luna (+221 774379252, albadara.samb@gmail.com). If you'd prefer to go the agency route for excursions, check out Nouvelles Frontières, a reputable company that has locations at the Dakar Airport (DKR), city center and in Saly. As infrastructure and roads aren't great and traffic is maddening (since there are few rules), it's best to hire a driver rather than renting a car or hopping on an over-packed bus. Prices for both guides and drivers are extremely low, and you can always try to strike a bargain.

Establishing and maintaining the right company culture is a major key to success in any business these days, especially with the growth of the millennial generation of workers. It has a huge impact on productivity, as well as morale and loyalty to the company. In this age of interactive social media, your culture image quickly spreads to customers, and determines their loyalty. Everyone knows and admires the leaders , including Google and Zappos, but most entrepreneurs have only a fuzzy idea of what to do to get there. If you are looking for specifics, as well as the science behind it, you should take a look at a new book, " Trust Factor - The Science of Creating High-Performance Companies ," by Paul J. Zak. He says trust is the key to a good culture. Zak is the director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University, and he has studied the connection between trust and performance all over the world.

What strange creature is this flitting across the Moon? Several members of the European Space Agency's Astronomy Center captured these views of the International Space Station near Madrid, Spain on January 14 as it flew or transited in front of the full moon. Credit: Michel Breitfellner, Manuel Castillo, Abel de Burgos and Miguel Perez Ayucar / ESA One-one thou... That's how long it takes for the International Space Station , traveling at over 17,000 mph (27,300 kph), to cross the face of the Full Moon. Only about a half second! To see it with your own eyes, you need to know exactly when and where to look. Full Moon is best, since it's the biggest the moon can appear, but anything from a half-moon up and up will do. The photo above was made by superimposing 13 separate images of the ISS passing in front of the Moon into one. Once the team knew when the pass would happen, they used a digital camera to fire a burst of exposures, capturing multiple moments of the silhouetted spacecraft.

Instead of providing for long prison terms for batterers, it lets them off with no jail time at all, not even a day. Instead, wife beaters will simply pay a fine for an assault -- and a small one at that. While a deplorable development, it's not a surprising one, given the Russian government's legal and even physical attacks on dissidents, gays and others it doesn't like. Because Russia sets the tone for the rest of the former Soviet Union, the new domestic-abuse bill will encourage misogynists across the region to put women back in their place where they belong. How bad is domestic violence in the former Soviet Union? No countries keep statistics, but surveys have shown a remarkably consistent figure of about a third of women being victimized. Armenia's Women's Right Center, a non-governmental organization, puts the figure at 30 percent, for example, and Belarus' YWCA says every third woman there "has been beaten at least once in her life by her spouse or sexual partner.

Pyrite Brown is one of the most interesting paint finishes on a BMW. Part of the BMW Individual catalog, the special brown color can be had for a few thousand dollars. This project shows what a clean tuning project should look like. The F80 M3 runs on a set of Vossen X Work VWS-2 with a WORK’s proprietary two-piece welding process. This production process is yielding nearly infinite fitment and finishing options. The sizes are 20×8.5 and 20×10.5 in the front and rear , respectively, featuring a matte black finish for the wheel center, while the polished lips add that classy finishing touch as well. The M3 also sports a front spoiler made of carbon fiber, coupled with a blacked out kidney grille and carbon fiber mirrors. To enhance that sporty look and handling of the F80 M3, the sporty sedan was fitted with a lower springs kit. The result can be seen in the photo gallery and video below.

French go to the polls Sunday for the first round of leftist primaries. But most expect the governing Socialists to be ousted from power in presidential elections later this year. The poll is expected to center on the economy, immigration and terrorism - issues that have helped power support for the far-right National Front party. The Socialist party is weak and divided, but there are still a few believers, passing out election flyers on a bitter morning as Parisians hurry past with their croissants and baguettes. Malian-born Massitan Camara is one of them. ‘They’re young and they get things done,’ she says. But many, among them Bruno Cautres, a political scientist at Sciences Po University in Paris, are not so sure. “The situation is absolutely desperate for the Socialists…. They look divided. It’s unlikely they’re going to do a good score in the presidential election.

The agility needed to go from factory work to the gig economy, or tech, or entrepreneurialism, or services, is much greater than it was to go from the buggy whip factory to the automobile factory. And instead of leading by proposing realistic ideas on how the government can help with that change, Trump is selling false protection, playing on the fear of change. Edward Goldberg is an expert on globalization and how geo-economic/political events shape our lives. He teaches international political economy at New York University's Center for Global Affairs. His new book, "The Joint Ventured Nation: Why America Needs A New Foreign Policy" shows why Donald Trump's concept of "Protection" from his inaugural address is historically wrong and extremely dangerous. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

I move to a huge loft not far from the Ritz-Carlton on Tverskaya Street. Thats the same luxury hotel where an uncorroborated dossier claimed Trump was at the center of compromising and salacious behavior during a previous trip. Here, Maria Katasonova, a young parliamentary candidate who ran to represent the nationalist party Rodina in the last Duma elections, organized a gathering, a book presentation (a political biography of Donald Trump) and conference on future U.S.-Russia relations. The place is not particularly full, and a big triptych portraying Putin, Trump and French far-right leader Marine Le Pen attracted plenty of attention from the media. The ceremony is projected on a large screen but everybody seems more interested in chatting than following the inauguration. Surely there is some genuine interest and support for Trump, but the appearance is more that of a PR event.

As Americans gather across the country in a mixture of celebration and protest following the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump, Palestinians in the occupied territory are expressing their own concerns of what a Trump presidency will mean for them. As Trump made his inaugural speech in Washington, a handful of youth leaders gathered by the separation wall in the occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem lighting images of Trump on fire and posting up banners with messages such as “Move your embassy to your own country, not ours” and “Stop TrumpJerusalem is the capital of Palestine.” Naji Owdeh, director of Palestinian Youth Action Center for community Development (LAYLAC), was in attendance, and told Mondoweiss that while he does not think Trump will be good for Palestinian politics, he does not see a Trump administration as being drastically better or worse for Palestine than the Obama administration had been, or what the Hillary Clinton administration could have been.
