Trying to remain fit during the heat of the summer requires determination. It is not easy to get up and start working out when the hot summer temperatures make you want to remain idle. This is because the body diverts the blood to the skin to keep it cool instead of the blood going to the muscles. This makes it difficult, but not impossible, to work out during the summer. It is important to remain hydrated during workouts; wearing light clothes is also important.

During summer, it is best to workout indoors rather than in the heat of the sun. Leasing gym equipment is a good way to remain fit during the hot days. You can just lease it for the season. That way, it is affordable. Also, it is better than purchasing expensive gym equipment that will remain unseen in a few weeks. Leasing gym equipment enables you to return it when you don’t use it anymore.

Remember to take good rest. Because the heat can affect your health while working out, it is important that you consult your doctor if you see signs of weakness or dizziness. Don’t push yourself to work out if you’re feeling faint. Working out in the summer keeps you feeling fit and alert instead of feeling lousy.

Fantasy football is an increasingly popular way to spend your Sundays watching football. It’s estimated now that somewhere between 20 and 30 MILLION people play fantasy football each year and the number is growing. Just think if the NFL continues to expand into Europe and it catches on there too. Nonetheless since the start of fantasy football a lot has changed in the landscape. Conventional wisdom just 10 years ago pretty much had every manager taking 2 running backs with their first 2 picks no matter what. This no longer is the case as wideouts and elite quarterbacks have become a staple in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and are even part of the first round now. So this bears the question, what really is the most important position in fantasy football.

So your are off to your draft and you have your fantasy football draft board software in play. You ‘ve studied up and you are ready to make your picks. Things are going to go different this year. You are going to draft a winning team, make the playoffs, and ultimately take home the  trophy this year. You’re turn is up and you take gulp… Andre Johnson with Ray Rice and Jamaal Charles on the board. Johnson is a good player but you may have just made a grave mistake. Let’s take a look why.

We’ll take out tight ends, kickers, defensive players, and defenses since none of these players finished in the top 25 scoring in most leagues no matter what the variations of scoring are. In standard leagues none of them did. Of the top 25 in scoring for 2010 15 were quarterbacks, 9 were running backs, and 1 wide receiver. Of the top 10 scorers 9 were quarterbacks and 1 was a running back Arian Foster who was fantasy’s #1 scoring player last year. So quarterback is the most important looking at this right? Well in actuality I would say quarterback is the least important. Let’s say you are in a 12 team league and you look at the #1 QB vs. the #12 qb. #1 was Michael Vick and #12 was Matt Cassel. Vick scored 300 points (depending on your scoring) and Cassel 217. That’s a difference of 83 points or 5.2 per game. Now Vick missed a few games so his numbers would’ve been higher so we could even take Aaron Rodgers the #2 QB who scored 292 points and only missed 1 game just like Cassel and it’s basically 5 points per game difference. So in between these 2 were 10 other quarterbacks that would’ve been only an average difference of less than 5 points of their top 2 counterparts and you can draft some of these guys later in drafts.

Now let’s look at Arian Foster the #1 RB who scored 313 points while the #12 back Maurice Jones Drew scored 186. That’s a difference of 7.94 points per game…even though MJD missed a few games we could take Matt Forte’s #11 finish of 199 points that’s still 7.13 difference per week or 114 points over a season. Now compound that with the fact that you likely need to start 2 running backs vs. only having to start 1 quarterback and it’s almost essential to have a top back. Let’s look at another example. Lets say manager A happened to have Arian Foster and Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson, or Jamaal Charles last year which was entirely possible. Manager B had MJD and say Cedric Benson. We’ll say for manager A it is Chris Johnson and Arian Foster. The combined total of Foster and Johnson was 529 points and the combined total of MJD and Benson was 344 points. For a 16 game schedule that’s 11.6 points per week. Would you rather be behind 11.6 or 5 to start the week? Yeah that’s what I thought.

Now you may argue that it’s hard to predict which backs will lead fantasy in scoring since Foster came out of nowhere so why not take an elite wide receiver in round 1 and 2 since we also have to play at least 2 if not 3. If you want to win your league and take home the fantasy football traveling trophy then this is also an intriguing idea but hardly a winning one. Let’s take a look at the Average draft position for the top 3 receivers over the last 3 years and how they finished.


1.     Andre Johnson    Finished 10th

2.     Randy Moss           Finished 68th

3.     Reggie Wayne        Finished 9th


1.     Larry Fitzgerald    Finished 5th

2.     Andre Johnson     Finished  1st

3.     Randy Moss            Finished  2nd


1.      Randy Moss           Finished 10th

2.      Terrell Owens       Finished  9th

3.      Reggie Wayne       Finished 14th

So besides 2008 it’s a bit of a crapshoot and in 2008 the #4 adp wideout was Calvin Johnson who finished 24th. Also it gets worse from there with the rest of the top 10..they are all over the board in finish.  Truth is the wide receiver position has always been hard to predict because they just get less touches than a RB or QB and thus don’t score quite as high.

Well then which running back do I pick. Well that’s the ultimate question and why we play fantasy. If we knew it wouldn’t be any fun now would it? My suggestion is to get at least one if not 2 good running backs in the first couple of rounds and continue to add them throughout the draft. The fact is they get a lot of touches and are a bit easier to predict than wide receivers. Plus you never know when the next Arian Foster is going to lead you to fantasy gold.

Every day new technology inventions change lives and society. Inventors are still revered – to almost mythical proportions – by engineering and computer enthusiasts of all ages. Yet many people never stop to think they could earn money, or even a steady income, by innovating a helpful or time-saving device.

All too often the childhood dream of growing up to be an inventor is forgotten during high school, as concerns about getting into the best college preoccupy even the most ingenious students. After earning a degree, nurturing a career may seem to demand most of one’s energy and time. By young adulthood, thoughts of inventing something may seem fantastical, as if such possibilities were truly beyond reach.

But the eager child within every creative person never forgets how to invent things. The ability to stir intuition and ideas around, and achieve highly unexpected and useful results awaits reactivation within even the most practical human head. Because the hominid brain evolved to survive the most rigorous challenges, it also stores an infinite potential for purposeful play.

Intentional play is the best way to begin inventing, instead of scheming how to earn a fortune with a high-tech product. Getting back into the habit holding daily brainstorming sessions, where anything and everything goes, may take insistent persistence, but this practice will bring many benefits. Besides unleashing the inner genius inside each individual, playing on purpose lifts the mood and lowers the blood pressure.

Besides brainstorming, doodling can lead to new technology. Looking at household items as if for the first time is another technique to start oneself thinking along technological lines. With new fields opening up in science and industry every day, even browsing the daily news is likely spark new inventive notions.

Staying at one’s “day job” is probably necessary. But when someone asks an aspiring inventor about career details, answering “I am learning how to invent things” is an inspirational, encouraging answer. Until technology inventions begin flowing, affirming one’s natural inventiveness can only help.
