What They Are, How to Read Them and What to Do With Them by Ed Bagley

36 after steamrolling over UAB 55-18 in its home opener.

La Salle lost its home opener to Ursinus 28-0. For Sagarin ratings and more detailed information go to: www.usatoday.com

The first job for La Salle this year will be to score a touchdown, or any points, including a field goal or touchback. Following its horrendous loss, Michigan ended up being ranked No. Good luck, La Salle, and God speed.

6) Temple (ranked No. 2. 242 La Salle Explorers. The worst-rated AA school is the No. 31 after hammering Syracuse 42-14 in its home opener.

Only Division I (both A and AA) are counted for rating and schedule strength during the season.

You will have to forgive the NCAA for taking titles that have been used for years and are perfectly clear, then renaming them and creating confusion in the process.

Anyway, the Sagarin rating is a numerical measure of a team’s strength.

Created by Jeff Sagarin, a 1970 MIT mathematics graduate, these computer ratings are for Division I-A (what the NCAA now calls the Football Bowl (FB) Subdivision) and Division I-AA (what the NCAA now calls the Football Championship (FC) Subdivision) teams.

5) Notre Dame, beaten badly (33-3) by Georgia Tech, was rated No. 38 following its upset of mighty Michigan 34-32 on Michigan’s home field. 41 by Sagarin following its 23-3 home victory over Virginia.

Ursinus College is not a Division 1 school (which includes the 242 teams with La Salle), not a Division II team (which includes another 157 teams), but a Division III team. Georgia Tech was rated No. 5 by both the AP Poll and Coaches Poll going into the game. The Explorers next job will be to actually win a game.

The Sagarin College Football Ratings: What They Are, How to Read Them and What to Do With Them

 by: Ed Bagley

When you know that more than $700 million can be bet on one game–the Super Bowl–in only Las Vegas, then you understand that billions were bet illegally on the Super Bowl last year in the United States and in offshore sports books around the world.

A diminishing-returns principle exists to prevent teams from building up ratings by running up large victory margins against weak teams. 145 after its opening loss) face off in week two. The home edge will vary during the season.

2) Michigan State, another short end of the stick team for far too long, was rated No. The worst-rated A school is Florida International at No. 40 by Sagarin.

Copyright © 2007 Ed Bagley

Following the first week of college football action, here are some facts that interested me about Sagarin’s first-week ratings:

The BCS (Bowl Championship Series) does not factor in scoring margin. Both teams are among the 7 worst Division I-A teams in the country, joining Louisiana-Monroe, Rice, Duke, Utah State and Florida International. . The ratings are updated following each week’s games and published in USA Today on Wednesdays.

Michigan was ranked No. La Salle is a Catholic university located in Philadelphia.

A hypothetical victory margin is determined by comparing the rating of the two teams after adding 2.93 points to the home team. Instead, it rewards teams that do well against good opponents.

7) A total of 242 teams, 119 A schools and 123 AA schools, make up the Sagarin College Football Ratings. 174 (56 AA teams are rated better), and their play reflects their rating. Ursinus is not a planet but a real liberal arts college in Pennsylvania.

While betting on sports is only legal in a few places in the United States, such as Las Vegas, millions of office workers are involved in sports pools every week now that the football season has arrived.

For those who wager, it may be helpful to put some science on your side when you wager, and one of the best places to do that is with the Sagarin College Football Ratings.

If there is a way for the NCAA to assert its superior power, it does so by making everything more difficult and confusing, similar to your United States government and its IRS tax code which could reduce a sane person to tears just reading it.

1) Washington, one of the poor to mediocre teams in the country the last several years, was rated No. 143 after its opening loss) and Buffalo (ranked No. Now you can better understand why La Salle College is ranked last among 242 Division I schools.

Folks in the gaming business know that more than a billion dollars is wagered on every Monday Night Football game during the season.

3) Appalachian State, a AA school, was rated No. 57 after the loss. The win was the biggest upset in college football history as no AA team had ever beaten a ranked team.

USA Today, the largest circulation newspaper in the United States, is the nation’s daily newspaper and carries the Sagarin College Football Ratings. The Irish failed to score a touchdown for the first time ever in their home opener.

4) Wyoming, a small school and never among the nation’s top teams, was ranked No

Can Cancer be Cured Naturally? Proof That Foods Can Fight Cancer and Even Eliminate it Completely!

Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Amazingly, this shows that a highly carcinigenic cancer-promoting toxin is rendered essentially harmless…. their counterparts, – those rats fed only 5% ANIMAL PROTEIN DIET, developed ZERO CANCER 100% of the time!

This phenonemon was first discoved by scientist in India, and successfully replicated by professor Colin T Campbell, author of The China Study…along with many others who have confirmed these findings.

Consider the following experiment:. (5% of calories)….NONE GET CANCER, and NONE die of cancer!!.

In countries with low intake of animal protein, we see far less cancer. Colin Campbell, PhD, is the project director of the China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project (the China Study), a 20-year study of nutrition and health.


In fact they found that by this means, they were able “turn cancer on and off like a light switch” (Quote)

Some ask whether food has any effect on cancer risk.

(some are even doctors!)

The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight-Loss and Long-Term Health


Surely if you were a rat, you would choose to be in the second group!!!

By T. when this foodstuff is eaten in much smaller amount… It is only rising as they become wealthier and adopt similar eating habits to those in the West.


Now consider that Americans consume far more animal protein that any other country on Earth…and also have a cancer epidemic…

Unbeleivably, they found that in some parts of China, cancer rates were 100 times higher in some parts than in other parts!! (That’s 10,000% higher!) How could this be? What does this prove?

“[These] findings from the most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease are challenging much of American dietary dogma.” –The New York Times


i.e All survive the deadly cancer causing aflatoxin.

Rats given a specific carcinogen, (aflatixin) and then fed a 20% ANIMAL PROTEIN DIET, will develop cancer 100% of the time.

Meanwhile… He is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University. (20% of calories) they ALL GET CANCER and later die of cancer.

But… Campbell.

When this foodstuff is eaten in larger amount… except when a high animal protein diet is consumed!

The China Study is described as epic, because it involved a truly vast area, and importantly, 87% of the population are of the same ethnic group, (the Han people) which eliminates the complicating factors experienced when diverse genetic groups are involved.

THE CHINA STUDY reveals startling evidence which shows that:

At the heart of this hugely important book you will find the incontrivertable truth about the effect of food and nutrition on cancer, and other diseases. In more than 40 years of research he has received more than 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers. If you have never read this book, you will be forever in the dark about food and its association with disease.

Many of the answers are given in The China Study.


Don’t you think there might be a connection?


So what is this mysterious common foodstuff?

The Negative Influences of Media on Society You Never Thought About

You want to wear the shade of nail polish Lady Gaga wears for that frantic gaga look. You want to do everything that people from the glamor world do, you want to be like your favorite celebrity. Not everyone is able to filter that element. What is shown with an intent to ‘spread a message’ ends up becoming a bombardment of the bad, the ugly. And that’s how impactive media is.


You want to imitate an action sequence just because your favorite action hero looked ‘cool’ doing it. Aren’t there ghost and vampire stories that media claims as real? These characters enter our world through books and movies. In a survey done on fifth graders by the National Institute on Media and the Family, it was found that kids had become dissatisfied with their bodies after watching a video of a certain very popular artiste and a certain scene from a popular TV show (names omitted on purpose).


Vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts – where did they come from? Fairies, superheroes, angels – where did they come from? It’s not only media to be blamed, as these characters belong to folklore. It influences their behavior both positively and negatively. But media did play a role in propagating these characters and making them seem real. The ‘awakening’ does not reach everyone or it reaches the masses in the wrong way. When you are not watching TV, you are surfing the Internet, when you are not on the web, you are reading newspapers, when you are not reading anything, you are listening to something. Any publicity is good publicity, you begin to feel.

Wrong Message

The media has, in its own way, changed people’s outlook towards life. Advertisements carry subliminal messages influencing buyers’ psychology, or carry direct messages that bear a negative influence. Media highlights controversies and scandals in the lives of celebrities. The craze for models or actors and actresses, makes teenagers want bodies and facial features like theirs. Haven’t you had experiences of a bad dream after watching a violent movie? Or of imagining something scary happening to you after watching a horror film? Or a sudden fear gripping your mind after reading about a murder in your city? The reality should be depicted but not so gaudily that it’ll have a lasting impact on people’s minds.

Unhealthy Lifestyle

Right-or-Wrong Dilemma

Fact-Fantasy Confusion

While a certain amount of exposure to media is essential for introducing ourselves to the world outside, excessive exposure, uncontrolled access and belief without thought won’t lead us anywhere. Use your judgment before following or falling for anything. The reel entertains only till its difference from the real is understood. You ask me why? Well, because there are these junk food advertisements everywhere. News sources often bombard you with the same negative stories over and over again, in order to increase the impact. Lack of physical activity leads to obesity problems. Put things in perspective, and don’t let the media influence you to do the wrong things.

Changed Outlook

Women with petite bodies and girls with a barbie figure are always shown to be more popular or attractive while the overweight are portrayed as less popular, having less friends and being bullied. The media does play a role in portraying thin as beautiful and fat as ugly. When this thought grips the minds of youngsters, they take to fad diets or turn to cosmetic surgeries to get that so-called perfect body. Media is the interface through which millions look at the world outside. Sometimes, small incidents or events in the lives of celebrities and politicians are hyped, in order to make them more sensational. There’s no one advertising the benefits of eating fresh fruit everyday, no one’s promoting drinking 8 glasses of water daily.

Media portrayals give rise to stereotypes, affecting your mindset. And not just children, the unpleasant can impact even an adult’s mind. An inferiority complex and lowered confidence in people with not-so-perfect bodies can lead to eating disorders. There is no denying their amusement value or entertainment quotient. No one’s propagating the importance of exercising to keep fit. How far do we go to check its authenticity? How deep do we dig to get to the root of something that’s making news? How critically do we judge the reality of reality shows and the truth behind true stories? We don’t think, we believe. Due to the oh-so-alluring media, most of their time is spent glued to the television, reading celebrity gossip, listening to something sensational or wandering aimlessly on the Internet. Just like them, even you want to be in the news. The benefits of following a balanced diet are not being hyped anywhere. The bad is overinflated and the good goes unnoticed. Refrain from watching such programs or news. The impact of media is such that the wrong, the controversial, and the bad is more talked about. Parents and teachers have a big role to play in selecting what the young should see and what they should not.

Health Problems

Media Addiction

To some extent, media is responsible for generating negative feelings among those exposed to it. The positive effects are surely celebrated by one and all. An early exposure to bold or violent films, books publishing adult content and news portraying ugly social practices has a deep impact on young minds. When the two worlds mix, life becomes difficult.

When you try to imitate your role models from the glamor industry, do you give a thought to whether you are doing right or wrong? It is often seen that young girls and boys imitate celebrities blindly. But there are advertisements of expensive exercise equipment, and weight and fat loss programs. But isn’t it too much to blindly believe that they exist? Fiction is amusing only till the distinction between fact and fiction is clear. Watching TV or browsing the web late night is spoiling the sleeping habits of many.

The Solution

The solution to avoiding the negative influence of media lies in limiting media exposure and choosing what to watch. But the negative effects are not conducive to a healthy society. Depiction of the bad has a negative impact on kids not mature enough to interpret what they are being shown. Children should invest more time reading good books, studying, playing outdoors and exercising. Newspapers, television and the Internet are used to convey social messages. Media is exposing the masses to fast food products, canned food, fad diets, and energy drinks. You want to sport your favorite actors’ hairstyles and you want to walk like those ramp models do. They will only make the negative influence of media more obvious.

Media is held responsible for the change in eating habits of teenagers and the unhealthy lifestyle they are adopting. This makes the overweight feel out of place. With a ‘world’ of information and entertainment waiting on the other side of a computer or TV screen, it’s not unnatural for anyone to spend hours exploring it; it’s addictive. Thus, all the time, you are glued to some form of media. Here, we will try to understand how media influences us negatively.

The negative effects of media on children are manifested in terms of their changing mental setup and the declining quality of their lifestyle. Your role models are people that the media exposes you to. Media is everywhere, affecting every aspect of life.

The negatives in society are highlighted with the purpose of awakening people about them. Media claims to depict the ‘today’, but not all types of media show only the truth. This is leading teenagers to adopt unhealthy eating habits. Adults may have the maturity to distinguish between the good and the bad, but bombarding only the bad can affect anyone at least at the subconscious level. This affects kids and teenagers the most, as they are exposed to things they might interpret wrongly or may not even understand at that age.

Blind Imitation

Information Overload

Media has negative effects on the physical and psychological well-being of society. This leads to a notion that thin is sexy and fat is not. You want to wear the LBD just because you are a fan of Coco Chanel. We don’t judge, we get influenced. Instead, watch good programs that carry healthy content, engage in positive activities, and encourage others to do the same. Sometimes, little things are blown out of proportion thus changing the way they are perceived by the audience. Most believe everything to be real, especially kids and teenagers.

The media in itself is so addictive that once glued to it, you tend to forget everything else. Don’t take media portrayals by their word. With the intent of stressing their point or for grabbing greater attention from the masses, media hypes or exaggerates things to a certain degree. So there is a section positively influenced by the media while there are others who take the wrong message from it. As a responsible adult (parent or teacher), exercise control on the media exposure that kids and teenagers get. This can, and has led to increasing cases of anorexia. It has led to a general opinion that size-zero is the in thing and fat and chubby are out. And there are so many things you see around you, without choosing to watch them. It’s not possible to insulate yourself completely from the effects of media, even if you limit the exposure. It’s not just media to be blamed in this case. The media is constantly bombarding us with information. The masses fall for this being-in-the-news and end up imitating celebrities without much thought. Media sources are so many in number and all of them so convincingly make their point, that it is hard to distinguish between right and wrong. For example, the negative effects of addiction are portrayed through advertisements. It is bombarding you with content, news, information, gossip, rumors – it is exposing you to everything it has, some things necessary, some not; some things important, some not, some things you want to ignore, some things you cannot. The only way to shield yourself from them, is to not allow them to influence you. They are ready to starve themselves to lose weight. Media influences public opinion and impacts the choices that people make. You want to be someone, but not yourself! And now you say media does not influence you! Oh come on, it surely does! Mass media does affect the way in which masses think and act. Those at a vulnerable age, especially children and teenagers, are highly influenced by anything that is put before them in a jazzy way. To get rid of a big nose or to get those big pouty lips, teenagers are ready to go under the knife.. At that age, they are attracted to anything that’s flashy and anything that can make news.

The media is so overwhelming that the masses end up believing everything it says/shows. But unfortunately sometimes, the message is misconstrued. People spending hours in front of a television or surfing the Internet experience eye problems. Don’t believe in them without thinking. Media influences them negatively. If children are bombarded with fight sequences, stunt work, sex and rape scenes, suicides and murders through books or movies, they are bound to leave a scar on these impressionable minds

Secrets And Tips On How To Win At Any Type Of Gambling

There are hundreds of gambling games that people can try for themselves. Use it rather than straight betting. Set a minimum bet in every game, and after a win, bet only half of the pot that was wagered in the previous round.

Stick to a strategy, and pick a strategy that works best. Among others, popular games are poker and black jack and craps.

Gambling can be full of excitement and fun. As the old cliché goes, knowledge is power. A person can make some serious money at betting, and people have even become very rich from gambling. This is the way to a big payoff.

There are some secrets to win any kind of gambling.

For example black jack, it is just like poker, there is a strategy card that a person can refer to beat the other players. If a person thinks that they are on the brink of losing, then do not bet. Use only one value chip in case a lost occurs in one round, add another chip to the wager. If people can not afford to lose their money, stay away from gambling.

. This attitude would keep a person betting until they get some good winnings. On every win, decrease the bet by 2 chips. There is no such thing as the greatest strategy but there are proven ones. Some of his websites are www.casinospokerrooms.com, www.bingosbingos.com, www.top-sportsbook.ca

Being optimistic will muster some confidence in that person and they will win those dollars. Get the probability and ratio of their winnings and losing. What matters more are their total net winnings?

Learn about the game, read related materials of the game such as basic rules and tips.

Watch the trend, people should be attentive to their winning and losing trends.

By: James M Murray

Keep in mind that winning does not mean a person has to win a bet every time. Although, never expect to win all the time, which barely happens. Collate all known gaming strategies and select the one that is effective and works. Doing so, a person bets more on the winning hands than they would do for the losing hands.

Britain hits offshore gambling industry with 300 million pounds | Reuters

Ladbrokes, Bwin.party, William Hill and Betfair all have online operations based in Gibraltar, which offers a benign tax regime for gambling companies.

William Hill, which has the largest share of the UK’s remote-gambling market, has previously suggested that it could challenge the changes on the grounds that they breach European Union competition law.

Taxes on online casino gaming operations based in the British territory are levied at 1 percent on gross profit, with fixed-odds betting taxed at 1 percent of turnover. The focus for us now is on trying to get the actual rate of the tax reduced,” Clive Hawkswood, chief executive of the Remote Gambling Association said.

Shares in Ladbrokes, Bwin.party, William Hill and Betfair did not move significantly on the news.

LONDON Online betting companies based in offshore havens to sidestep Britain’s gambling taxes will be hit with a new levy that could cost the industry 300 million pounds ($467 million).

Plans to bring offshore gaming companies under the British tax system were outlined in the government’s 2012 Budget, but the industry had been waiting for the detail – most crucially the rate at which they will be taxed.

Traditional land-based betting will be unaffected, the government said.

“It is unacceptable that gambling companies can avoid UK taxes by moving offshore, and the government is taking decisive action to ensure this can no longer happen,” Economic Secretary to the Treasury Sajid Javid said.

Land-based betting is also mostly taxed at a rate of 15 percent, except for land-based gaming, which takes in the likes of gaming machines and bricks-and-mortar casinos. This attracts a variable tax rate of between 15 percent and 50 percent, a Treasury spokeswoman told Reuters.

The government, which said it will confirm the 15 percent rate in its Budget statement next March, estimates that the new rules will bring in 300 million pounds a year in additional tax revenue.. The tax will be levied on companies’ gross profit – total bets placed minus prizes paid out – in the 2 billion pound remote-gambling market from December 2014.

Under rules published on Friday, Britain will tax gambling according to where customers are based rather than where the online operator is registered, meaning that offshore operators pay the same 15 percent tax rate as domestic remote-betting companies.

The shift will affect some of the industry’s largest players. Both are capped at 425,000 pounds.

“These reforms will ensure that remote-gambling operators who have UK customers make a fair contribution to the public finances.”
