The Rock Chalkboard

Bryant’s interception was right play at right time for KU - KU Sports
KU’s defense could not get off the field against Emory Jones, Corey Kiner and the Bearcats’ rushing attack. The Jayhawks already trailed 3-0 early in the second quarter when they had to punt on UC’s side of the field and incurred a fourth-down holding penalty that neglected any field-position advantage. Momentum was low and KU appeared headed for a late-season letdown.

The Jayhawks shook off a scoreless first quarter and piled on 21 points in the second, including one touchdown practically gifted by Cincinnati due to an ill-advised squib kick that gave KU the ball near midfield.

Cincinnati — Cincinnati coach Scott Satterfield called Kansas running back Devin Neal “very impressive” this week, and defensive end Jowon Briggs said Neal “gets downhill fast, when he gets into open space he has good breakaway speed, he’s a very patient back” — so clearly Neal has garnered the respect of his Big 12 Conference foes.

It Will Never Be a Good Time to Buy a House - The Atlantic
New York, in housing as in many things, is an extreme example. But the brutal mathematics is much the same across the country. At this time 15 years ago, real-estate agents had 2.2 million vacant housing units available to show prospective buyers. That number has dwindled and dwindled and now sits at just 732,000, despite the country having added 30 million people to its population. The Case-Shiller index of home prices sits near its highest-ever inflation-adjusted level; houses are unaffordable for middle-class families across the country. Rural areas are expensive. Suburbs are expensive. Cities are absurdly expensive. Nowhere is cheap. That’s in part thanks to mortgage rates. The monthly payment on a new home has increased by more than 50 percent in the past three years, as 30-year mortgage rates have climbed from less than 3 percent to nearly 8 percent.

Sealand, world's smallest state, has just 1 permanent resident | 60 Minutes - CBS News
OK, name that country: It's planted opposite Europe, sitting proudly on the other side of the North Sea. It's a monarchy that features its own currency, postage stamps, constitution, national anthem, love of tea and a pair of handsome princes, born two years apart. We speak of… Sealand. A crumb of real estate off the English coast that declared its independence in 1967, Sealand has a full-time population of… one. It has a land mass the size of…. roughly two tennis courts. Its leading export might be… the national mythology, a history of piracy, coups, countercoups, rogues and off-shore Internet schemes. It may make tiny Lichtenstein look like China by comparison. But by rights, Sealand is a sovereign nation. Join us, as we compile some notes from a truly small island.
