NFL good for seasoned sports bettors, novices should focus on other sports

In the world of professional sports betting, few sports see as much money flowing through the coffers as NFL football. The NFL is perhaps the most popular sport in the United States, and it’s certainly the most popular when measured by average viewership of individual games. This makes for a lucrative combination for those seasoned professionals who are capable of winning year in and year out from betting sports. But just as new entrepreneurs are well advised to pick small, low competition industries in which to start their business, the same can be said for those new to sports betting. There are a lot of reasons to love betting on the NFL, but more often than not it won’t be the best choice for a novice looking to break into sports investing as a career.

Big money means big competition

There are two main features that distinguish the NFL from all other bets you’ll find in the sports book. The first is the very low number of games. Almost all games are played on Sunday or Monday and the vast majority of those will be on Sunday. Very rarely will a team play more than one time in a week. In practice, this means there are very few contests relative to other sports like the NBA or MLB. The relative scarcity of games means that there will simply be much fewer opportunities to find incorrect NFL odds. The best pros can handle this with super-accurate models and huge bankrolls that can pick out the tiniest edges and ride out the swings that come with making those bets. A new player will not have those luxuries.

The second distinguishing feature of the NFL is the enormous attention that single games get. This is a direct consequence of fewer games running. What it means in practice is that the lines will often be much closer to accurate because so much money and so much brainpower is going into analyzing each game. For these reasons it’s far better for new sports bettors to concentrate on lower volume, higher frequency sports like NCAA basketball or MLB baseball.

Tesla Made More Money Than The Entire U.S Oil Industry

The Little Startup That Could

Last year Tesla managed to make $22 million dollars in profit while the American oil industry suffered a massive loss of $67 billion dollars. This uptick in profits comes as the oil industry contends with the lower gas prices recent years have given. Tesla’s business model, automated manufacturing and self driving features, is proving itself over other models. This success comes despite calls to support the oil industry to spur economic growth. When Elon Musk founded Tesla he did so with the goal of bringing alternative energy into the automotive industry. It seems as if he accomplished his goal.

 

 

The Growth Of Alternative Energy

The growth of Tesla is part of a general trend favoring renewable energy in the free market. Currently there are more Americans employed by the solar industry than there are employed by the oil and natural gas industry. Initially dismissed by many as a fad solar and wind energy are on track to take over the energy market. Despite the growth of alternative industry the political landscape neglects it. Indeed many politicians argue domestic oil reserves will generate jobs and increased GDP growth. However the general trend in the oil industry is towards a loss of revenue and jobs. Last year the oil industry shed 100k jobs.

 

 

The Tesla Miracle

While other automotive manufacturers like GM are experiencing job losses Tesla continues to expand its workforce. While Tesla currently employs 18000 employees worldwide it plans to add even more workers to its roster. At the Tesla factory in Fremont there are currently 6000 employees, but the manufacturer would like to add 3000 more. Outside of these deals Tesla is making investments into other companies with a focus on alternative energy such as the Gigafactory in Nevada. The success of Tesla signals a paradigm shift in American industry. The job creators of today aren’t the oil tycoons we are used to. They are green, socially conscious, and technically gifted prodigies.

Facebook Messenger’s new Group feature

In a bid to increase privacy among groups of users accessing its site, Facebook was experimenting with a semi-anonymous social network. While the feature turned out to be a failure, the company has rolled out multiple features after the recent project. Facebook Messenger has now rooms that pop up in the Messenger’s application. The new feature is now as Rooms and has been released only to users in specific markets. Facebook made the release quite limited as a test, trying to observe if the messaging platform could encourage broader public conversations on specific topics.

 

Recent news and information revealed that Facebook was already experimenting with multiple Rooms on the Messengers app. Back in September, the company had a code within the Messenger app that referenced to the feature used by the firm name. The code further offered an explanation of how the rooms were set to work. The rooms work for several reasons, meant for public conversations and topics that interest several users. Each room comes with a link which can be shared by anyone on the messenger application.

 

The flexibility with the new feature allows users to create their rooms. Room members can perform several other functions such as invite members, set a nickname for the group, approve new members or configure notifications for the rooms. Facebook spokesperson stated that the rooms were a test, just a small section and did not comment further.

 

The Facebook rooms have now been increasingly launched to a wider scale of audiences in Canada and Australia. These countries are the principal places where social networking trials mainly due to their English-speaking users. According to Facebook, the feature is different from group chats as it focuses on talking about specific topics. Group chats, on the other hand, are usually joined by friends and family that users engage with frequently.

 

There are other Rooms set to operate as private to improve the features. These rooms allow others to join only when the administrator approves them. The rooms are going to work well for large Facebook groups connected by a common interest. It will help connect people focused on a specific interest about an individual subject. People will start sharing things they want to discuss via messaging instead of the formal structure through the Facebook Group.

Lifestyle Blogger Teri Hutcheon Loves Fabletics

Teri Hutcheon of A Foodie Stays Fit has recently raved about Kate Hudson’s athletic apparel brand, Fabletics. As CEO and founder of Fabletics, Hudson has run the successful brand for three years, offering women a subscription-based service in which they receive a different workout outfit each month for $49.95. Lifestyle bloggers around the world have been praising the fashion brand’s unique and convenient method for providing athletic gear to enthused shoppers.

 

Teri was naturally drawn to Fabletics as she, herself, is a woman who likes to stay active. She signed up as a VIP member on the Fabletics website, allowing her to receive a monthly outfit for a monthly fee. Like all VIP members, Teri filled out the survey on the website which includes questions about her workout and style preferences, and then each month, she logs on to the website to see a small selection of athetlic outfits picked out for her based on her preferences. Then, she selects the one she wants, and it is sent directly to her door.

 

The first thing that impressed Teri about Fabletics was the quality of the products she had received. Despite the fact that the prices are incredibly reasonable compared to those of other athletic apparel brands, the high quality of materials used is instantly recognizable. She noted that the fit of the clothes is outstanding, and that the colors do not fade in the wash over time.

 

Teri was also very happy with the variety of styles she could choose from. While some athletic fashion brands only focus on one key item, like yoga pants or sports bras, Fabletics allows users to choose from a large array of different workout-related apparel items.

 

What perhaps impressed Teri most, however, is the overall value of Fabletics. For under $50 per month, users are given a full outfit containing top quality athletic apparel items. Teri noted that it is very likely she would spend the same amount for just one piece, let alone a whole outfit.

 

Ultimately, Teri highly recommends Fabletics to any woman out there who loves athletic apparel and is looking for a more convenient way to shop for her workout clothes. The selection is remarkably diverse, the quality of each piece is outstanding and the prices simply cannot be beat.
