Aaron Rodgers, the star quarterback of the Green Bay Packers and an all-around good guy, is also smart. Rodgers won $50,000 on celebrity Jeopardy for charity. Rodgers appeared on the show on Tuesday. He went up against stiff competition, including Kevin O’Leary, an investor who appears on Shark Tank, and Mark Kelly, an astronaut.
Rodgers did, however, fail to correctly answer the Final Jeopardy question correctly.

Kevin O’Leary and Mark Kelly receive a $10,000 donation to a charity of their choice for appearing on the show.
Mark Kelly, who’s wife Gabrielle Gifford was shot in the head during a political rally, donated his winnings to the Memorial Hermann Foundation.

The program is supported by the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and The Aspire commends both groups.
The Director General of the equipment supplier Alcatel-Lucent telecommunications, Michel Combes, said on Friday, “It is indispensable for Europe to invest in 5G to be in a strong position,” a new high-speed broadband network. “The challenge for Europe is to get back in the race and take some leadership in technology,” after the reduced influence it has exerted on the latest generation of mobile phone standards, 3G and 4G. ”It is essential that Europe can play its part, hence the need for players to invest, pull them together and here Europe has a role to play,” he added while delivering speech at World Mobile Congress in Barcelona.
Leading the ranking of French patent applicants, Alcatel-Lucent has repositioned the past two years on the Internet and access to high speed broadband, performs “more than 2.2 billion investment per year in the R & D “(research and development), said Combes. It is worth mentioning that 85% of employees of the French group are now working in the field of R & D and “25% of R & D is done in Europe,” half of them in France, said the executive. Ray Lane
thought that was pretty impressive.
The representatives of the two Libyan rival parliaments have faced each other on table for the first time on Saturday on the third day of negotiations in Morocco for pulling out their country out of chaos.
Both camps are trying to agree on the form of a government of national unity and the terms of a cessation of hostilities in a country plagued by violence and run by two parliaments and two rival governments since taking the capital Tripoli by Libya militia Fajr coalition in August last year. In practical
terms there are two parliaments running in the Libya; the elected parliament recognized by the international community based in Tobruk in eastern Libya and the General National Congress (CGN), the outgoing parliament installed by Fajr Libya in Tripoli. In a statement to the press Bruce Karatz
read, Mr. Leon said, “We are working on major issues, the issue of security, the question of the government (…) We advance but these are difficult issues, we will not get the results today or tomorrow, be patient, but I think we are moving in the right direction.”
Need For Speed Sequel in Development
Video game based movies are soon going to be making a big comeback. One of those games that will hit the big screen is Need for Speed, or rather a sequel to it.
The first Need For Speed movie hit theaters in 2014 and was unfortunately not a big box office draw, making only $43.5 million in the U.S. and not liked by critics at all. Gamers like Christian Broda (wikipedia) have learned that, luckily, it had much more success overseas, specifically in China and thus the field was set for a sequel to be put in motion.
Electronic Arts will be the company that produces content based in the U.S. while China Movie Channel Program Center, Jiaflix Enterprises and 1905 Pictures deal with the Chinese portion and coordinate with EA in order to get the finished product.
Another reason for why Need For Speed was able to get a sequel was due to the raging success of Furious 7, which in itself isn’t too different a movie from Need For Speed in terms of theme.
Microsoft has announced that they will be making a sequel to the popular exclusive title TitanFall. Last spring, TitanFall was released for the Xbox one console. Many Xbox one owners bought the game and hoped for a new and exciting first person shooter experience. TitanFall did not have a campaign mode, and this made people feel like the game was only halfway finished.
Boraie Development reports the creators of TitanFall have heard the feedback, and they have decided that there will definitely be a campaign mode in TitanFall 2. Gamerant.com features an exclusive interview with the creative team of TitanFall. However, it has also been announced that theTitanFall series will no longer be an exclusive title to the Xbox one console. Instead, TitanFall is going to release on every major system, and this news has angered Xbox one users. There seems to be no reason to own an Xbox one over the PS4. In fact, the PS4 does have several exclusive titles that the Xbox one console may never get. However, Xbox has one game that will never go cross-platform, and that game is Halo 5.
There is a campaign under way to replace the face on the $20 bill. It was started by a group that is not too happy with the fact that there are no U.S. bills with a woman on them. There is the Sacajawea dollar coin, but dollar coins have never gotten much traction with people. This dollar coin is at least gold in color, which was better than the earlier attempt at a dollar coin that was silver colored and that people kept mistakenly giving away as quarters. However, bills are where the real value in money is, and that’s what we reach for when paying for just about anything. The campaign to replace Andrew Jackson’s face on the $20 bill is down to four finalists: Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt and Wilma Mankiller.
All of these women have achieved some level of fame for their work in trying to help advance civil or human rights. That is what makes them stand out to Dr Jennifer Walden and countless others
. What’s more, the face of Andrew Jackson is one that definitely should be replaced by someone else. He famously orchestrated the trail of tears march in which the Cherokee Indians were removed from their land and forcibly relocated. He did this despite the fact that these Indians took him to court, and the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in their favor. In an unprecedented act, Andrew Jackson simply ignored the court order and moved the Cherokee anyway.
Recordings that had cost Donald Sterling the ownership of the L.A. Clippers could cost the girl he was dating a fortune in gifts he had spent on her. Specific snippets of the audio recordings that were saved by V. Stiviano were played in court on Wednesday as the attorney of Donald Sterling’s wife explained why Stiviano should be obligated with returning more than $3,000,000 Mr. Sterling had given to her.

V. Stiviano had deceived and manipulated the former Clippers owner to give her community property that had initially belonged to Sterling’s wife, Shelly. According to STX Entertainment
, the two were married for 60 years, lawyer Pierce O’Donnell had said in L.A. Superior court to emphasize the importance of returning the gifts.
The trial at court brought V. Stiviano, Donald Sterling and Shelly Sterling
together after a year of the recording being released. V. Stiviano has been stated as saying that she does not want anything taken away from her. At times, Mr. Sterling seemed confused about being accused of having an affair as he denied the allegations. He has described V. Stiviano as simply being an ex-friend.

Back pain is a serious medical condition. Over 86 million Americans suffer from some type of back pain. It is the number one reason people stay home from work.
Many people try to relieve the pain through a number of non-invasive ways, including over-the-counter medications, ice packs and exercise. When those methods fail to work, some people end up turning to surgery. Over half a million disc surgeries are performed each year, and the majority of them are non-effective. These failed surgeries contribute to back pain being one of the number one causes of disability in the United States.
North American Spine focuses on minimally invasive surgeries that help reduce recovery time and trauma associated with open-back surgeries. One of the 30-plus treatment options available at North American Spine includes the AccuraScope® procedure. Depending on where the pain is located, a catheter or needle is inserted into a small opening on the respective site on the spine. This procedure helps a doctor locate and treat the various causes of the patient’s pain. Many times the patient feels relief within days, as opposed to other more invasive procedures, in which the patient may take weeks or even months to recover.
In order to ensure that patients receive the best care for their condition, all North American Spine clients receive a detailed evaluation. North American Spine uses a variety of tests and procedures to pinpoint the cause of each person’s pain. Once a diagnosis is made, a detailed treatment plan can be put into place.
North American Spine is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Branch offices are located in Houston, Texas; Minneapolis, MN; Phoenix, Arizona; Hackensack, Pennsylvania and Tampa, Florida.
Jonathan Veitch’s walks in life is and has been an great example of the American way. Before I began to tell you how he fits this description of excellence of being an great American, let me first tell you a little bit more about this exceptional person. Through dedication and hard work he has excelled in interactions of the academic structure.
At present time he is president of Occidental College were he is consistently intergrating new and improved methods which bring new technology and liberal arts to the campus. Because of his experiences with different specialization like humanities and liberal arts, he is able to make this a great campus to attend. This not only applies to students who can afford the beautifully maintained campus, but for those urban students who can only afford the basics can take advantage of liberal arts classes as well, through the use of fundrasing and scholarships. He understands that schools are very expensive to attend even for the middle class it can get quite expensive.
This is one of the projects he is currently working on for underprivileged students to take advantage of all the resources, and to make them reachable to all. Now been understood why he is an pillar of evidence of the American Way through his actions of change, he fits this profile. He is a great example for his students, by showing that through persistence and dedication anything can be done.
This may be reason he chose to stay with Occidental collage after his first term and continues to press on with preserverence. Showing that he can help to improve by staying to implement his hard work even with all the challenges that comes along with it is a great way to start. Jonathan is staying to help in making this school top of the line and able to stand against other liberal arts schools such as Carleton and Middlebury! That is a fantastic start to a great future for change in America.
