Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 4:24 PM EDT Oct 7, 2018 Free Press sports writer Carlos Monarrez answers three questions after the Detroit Lions' 31-23 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Ford Field: Holy smokes! Are the Lions this good or are the Packers this bad? The short answer is the Lions are not this good. At least they aren’t leading-at-halftime-24-0 good. The Lions (3-2) get full credit, especially defensively, for playing so well in the win. But it was also one of those games in which they got just about every imaginable break. From Mason Crosby missing four field goals and an extra point to the referees screwing up and giving the Lions the ball at the Packers 1 on a punt in the first quarter. The Packers are not a great team, but without Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison, two of Aaron Rodgers’ key targets, their offense seemed stuck in the mud. But the Packers have some serious issues. They were sloppy in every phase … [Read more...] about Are Detroit Lions this good or Green Bay Packers this bad?

Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 PM EDT Sep 13, 2018 EAST LANSING — It used to be a rarity. Now, primetime football is commonplace for Michigan State. The 24th-ranked Spartans, after their bye this weekend, will play their third straight night game, at 7:30 p.m.Sept. 22, when they travel to Indiana to open Big Ten play (Big Ten Network). It will mark MSU’s 18th kickoff under the lights in the past five regular seasons and the Spartans’ 23rd beginning after the 3:30 p.m. Eastern window of games, when including postseason games and an afternoon kickoff at Oregon in 2014. MSU has never played three straight night games in program history, and the Spartans also have never played consecutive regular-season road games at night. “Having a night game as opposed to a day game, we're just going to play them when we’re supposed to play them and get excited about an opportunity to do that,” MSU coach Mark Dantonio said Tuesday. “Third … [Read more...] about Michigan State in another night game a good or bad thing?
By Bethany Thayer, MS, RDN Published 11:46 p.m. UTC Aug 27, 2018 Not long ago, Americans demonized dietary fat. Members of the news media, health and fitness enthusiasts, and even qualified health professionals blamed fat for America’s obesity epidemic and skyrocketing rates of heart disease, cancer and stroke. The argument against dietary fat was so pervasive, manufacturers began reformulating their products without the important macronutrient. Fat-free and low-fat became the buzzwords of food advertising. Now the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction: Today, a growing number of Americans not only accept fat in their diets, but many are even following regimens like the ketogenic diet that are up to 80 percent fat. How can the two warring theories coexist? Which one is correct? As with all things, it’s all about striking a balance. Dietary Fat 101 Dietary fat is essential. It supports cell growth and renewal. It protects your organs and keeps your body warm. It … [Read more...] about Fats in your diet: The good, the very good and the bad
2019 Lexus UX; Cars.com photos by Christian Lantry The 2019 Lexus UX's styling offers nothing new to the Lexus brand — wild, sharp angles and huge spindle grille — but there are interior innovations, including one big surprise, that helped me like the tiny SUV more than I thought I would. Related: More 2018 New York Auto Show Coverage Looking at the Lexus UX, it appears to be a mishmash of styles from various Lexus vehicles, including the larger RX, which supplies the grille, and the NX, which provides a template for the angular side sculpting and shape. Lexus calls the UX its first compact utility vehicle but that is a misnomer. The NX, which is based on Toyota's RAV4, fits that bill, while the UX is based on the Toyota CH-R that pushes it more into the subcompact family. The UX doesn't bring anything new to Lexus styling. The Lincoln Aviator, also introduced at the New York auto show, looks very much like a Lincoln and shares styling traits with the larger … [Read more...] about The 2019 Lexus UX Is a Clash of Good and Bad
Late last month, Polyphony Digital responded to a common criticism of Gran Turismo Sport. “GT League” was just a part of the substantial 1.10 update, and it brought a more traditional single-player experience to fans.As ever with these sorts of things, it’s a double-edged sword. Now that we’ve had some time with the new content, we’ll be taking a look at how GT League succeeds in broadening Sport’s appeal, and how it continues a handful of foibles that troubled the franchise last generation.GOOD: Offline Content Keeps More Players HappyIt’s been a bit of a common refrain here, so we’ll keep it brief: GT Sport is a very different beast to what’s come before. In the franchise’s two-decade history, it’s the biggest change in terms of focus. While Polyphony launched the game with single-player aspects like Circuit Experience and a new Custom Race mode, all of it was ostensibly there to funnel players to the … [Read more...] about GT League is Everything Good (and Bad) About Classic Gran Turismo
