Somerville drop HumSci

first_imgThe Governing Body at Somerville has decided to stop offering Human Sciences undergraduate degrees. Within two days, hundreds of students, alumni and tutors have reacted with dismay and conviction against the ruling.The online petition called Stop Somerville Dropping Human Sciences has been already signed by hundreds of students.No interviews for Human Sciences were offered to the incoming applicants for 2010, a decisive move which occurred without student consultation or public announcement. The decision is for a “trial period” only, but its reversal is unlikely as Somerville follows the trend for colleges independently dropping the course.Caroline Lennartsson commented, “Purists may well consider Human Sciences a mongrel subject, but mongrels are those with hybrid vigour and durability.”last_img read more

Football: Benzschawel taking advantage of starting role

first_imgWell after the Wisconsin football team’s practice ended Tuesday, Beau Benzschawel wanted to work more.While waiting to be interviewed by a gaggle of reporters, he sought out fifth-year senior Tyler Marz. Marz and Benzschawel, just a redshirt freshman, command the tackle positions for the Badgers’ battered and bruised offensive line.Today’s lesson from the eldest member of the unit to one of its freshest members revolved around handling a twist stunt from defenders.It’s one of many ways Benzschawel has prepared himself for the starting right tackle job, which he assumed before the Nebraska game last Saturday. Lincoln was quite the experience for someone’s first college game, he said.“Being in an environment like Nebraska, with all their fans yelling the whole time, it was a cool feeling for sure,” Benzschawel said.The right tackle spot for Wisconsin this season can be equated with the Defense Against the Dark Arts position at Hogwarts: No one seems to hang on to it.Injuries to redshirt freshman Hayden Biegel and Jacob Maxwell opened the door for Benzschawel last week.Benzschawel was in position to earn the starting job to begin the season, but a knee injury sidelined him during training camp. It was a long road back, but the recovery process made him a better player. UW’s Strength and Conditioning team worked hard with Benzschawel to improve his upper-body strength.“I made some really big gains in the weight room upper-body wise,” Benzschawel said. “I think it just really helped me to come back out here and feel more comfortable being able to toss dudes around a little more.”As for his performance Saturday, Benzschawel said he was happy he didn’t allow a sack, but added there’s always room for improvement.UW offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph said Benzschawel’s play Saturday gave the offense a physical element.“He battled his tail off. He’d be the first to tell you he wasn’t perfect on every [play], but the things are correctable; we’ll correct,” Rudolph said. “There’s some technique stuff that we’ll clean up, but the fight, the physical nature — love that.”A 6-foot-6, 308-pounder from Grafton, Wisconsin, Benzschawel is just the latest member of UW’s offensive line to step up when his number was called.“I think everyone expects that. Injuries are a part of football,” Benzschawel said. “You always just gotta be ready, paying attention in meetings, watching other guys’ reps and making sure you’re ready.”last_img read more

Week 14 Perfect DraftKings Lineup and Week 15 NFL DFS tips

first_imgMost weeks we see two solid, higher-priced RBs and at least a couple random WRs in the DraftKings perfect lineup, but Week 14 was a little different. There’s still a rando WR sighting (Hey, Kenny Stills…remember him?), but there’s a rando RB, too. Couple that with the rare two-TE set and a QB-RB-WR onslaught stack, and you have the type of week that makes those in DraftKings contests just shrug. That doesn’t mean you should abandon traditional daily fantasy football strategy with your Week 15 lineup picks, but it should serve as a reminder that football is an imperfect game, and achieving NFL DFS perfection is a near impossible task.But still…we try. And there are certainly things we can learn from last week’s perfect lineup that will carry over to the final weeks of the 2018 season. Lesson No. 1: Amari Cooper is still far too underpriced. Lesson No. 2: The Eagles defense just isn’t that scary anymore. WEEK 15 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup builderWe’ll get into more lessons below, but first we have to remind you that the results and graphic referenced in this article are from RotoQL, the best DFS research site on the internet. Whether you play NFL, NBA, MLB, or PGA DFS contests, if you’re serious about winning, RotoQL’s tools and features can give you the ultimate advantage. With expert projections and the ultimate lineup building tool, the RotoQL DFS Optimizer, you’ll be ready to win big.Week 15 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerNFL DFS: DraftKings Perfect Lineup for Week 14Dak Prescott, QB, CowboysPrescott certainly hasn’t been the type of QB you’d want in GPPs this year. With only one game with more than two TDs and no games of 300 passing yards, his relatively affordable price only meant so much. But everything came together last week, as Prescott took advantage of a weakened Eagles secondary and an overtime period to air it out 54 times, completing 42 passes for 455 yards and three TDs. He also turned it over three times, but that’s fine. The odds he does this again seem slim, but we know his rushing ability (which wasn’t on display last week) can give him a higher floor. For now, this looks like more of a one-week anomaly, but with Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott really stepping up in the passing game, Prescott has a lot more upside than he did earlier in the season.Ezekiel Elliott, RB, CowboysThe Eagles pass defense has been struggling for a while, but it’s run defense still had decent overall numbers. A closer look would have revealed at least a 98-yard rusher in each of the past four games (Elliott, Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara, Adrian Peterson), as well as eight total RB touchdowns in that span (five rushing, three receiving). So, it’s not a huge surprise that Zeke’s second game against them was almost as good as his first. To be fair, he needed a whopping 40 touches to rack up his 192 total yards, but his 12 receptions really set him apart in DraftKings full PPR format. Elliott is now fifth among all RBs in targets and receptions, trailing only Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, James White, and Kamara, and his 502 receiving yards is seventh among backs. And, oh yeah, he leads the league in rushing. His nine TDs are a bit of a disappointment compared to other elite RBs, but he’s still the type of player who can’t be priced high enough.Damien Williams, RB, ChiefsWe knew when Kareem Hunt got released that the Chiefs backfield would be different, and while Spencer Ware was expected to be the workhorse, it was clear in Week 13 than Williams would have a role, too. That said, we didn’t expect him to be vulturing a one-yard TD run and racking up four receptions, including a five-yard TD. Williams only had 30 total yards against the Ravens, but when you score twice and have a decent number of catches at a bargain-basement price, it goes a long way. You shouldn’t necessarily be on the lookout for the “next Williams” on other teams, but it’s worth noting he has some upside going forward.​WEEK 15 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsKenny Stills, WR, DolphinsStills bubbled back up on the radar in Week 13 when he caught four balls for 37 yards and a score, but he was a one-man wrecking crew in Week 14, catching eight passes for 135 yards and a TD. He was the only Dolphin with more than one reception. It’s tempting to say he’s re-establishing himself as Miami’s No. 1 target, but we’ve seen this before from Stills and it rarely lasts. More important, he finishes the year with tough matchups against the Vikings and Jaguars, so he’s not exactly someone who should stay on your radar. About the only thing we can take from this is that the Patriots continue to have trouble with No. 1 WRs. Amari Cooper, WR, CowboysIt’s puzzling how cheap Cooper remains on many DFS sites. Since joining the Cowboys in Week 9, he’s averaged 6.7 catches, 8.8 targets, 107 yards, and one TD per game. Obviously, a couple monster performances have inflated those totals, but the bottom line is Cooper is a true WR1. He showed that in Week 14 with his 10-catch, 217-yard, three-TD showing against a decimated Eagles’ pass defense. At this current prices across the industry, Cooper is a must-own in cash formats and a great GPP option, as well.JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, SteelersSmith-Schuster has a strange game last week, scoring on two one-yard TD receptions but still managing to post 130 yards on eight catches (a last-minute hook-and-lateral got him over the 100-yard mark). With over 100 yards in three of his past four games, Smith-Schuster is an optimal “cheaper” alternative to some of the higher-priced WR1s, including his teammate, Antonio Brown. He’s also scored in three of his past five games, so there’s really no reason to fade Smith-Schuster at this point, especially against horrible defenses like the Raiders.WEEK 15 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsRob Gronkowski, TE, PatriotsApparently, the rumors of Gronk’s demise were greatly exaggerated. Sure, he can’t tackle, but that’s not of any concern to DFS owners. Gronk turned in his first 100-yard performance since Week 1, catching eight passes for 107 yards and a score against the Dolphins, a team that entered the game allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game to TEs. Gronk has scored in two of the past three outings, but sandwiched in between was a 26-yard dud against Minnesota. Gronk still isn’t the old Gronk, but he still has slate-topping upside in GPPs, especially in favorable matchups.George Kittle, FLEX, 49ers Kittle was our top TE last week, but even we didn’t expect seven catches, 210 yards, and a score. Denver has struggled against TEs most of the season, so it wasn’t a surprise to see Kittle have success, but it’s rare any TE has this kind of monster game. Kittle is on the short list with Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, and Eric Ebron as TEs who can work in the FLEX slot, Lions D/STIt feels like Ziggy Ansah and Darius Slay are never fully healthy for Detroit at the same time, and sure enough, Ansah left last week’s early because of a shoulder injury, but Detroit still showed up and took advantage of a favorable matchup. Slay had a pick-six, Detroit’s only takeaway, and helped contribute to Arizona scoring only three points. It’s tough to expect any defense to hold an offense under 14 points, but if they manage to keep it under a touchdown, it goes a long way in fantasy.last_img read more
