So, with the death a few weeks ago of my father's best friend, my brother and I have taken up betting with my father on a selection of NFL games each week. We started with the last game of the regular season.

I have done very poorly so far. How will I do this weekend?

Their habit was to also consider the point spread. And we take turns making our selections on the week's games. This week, I have ended up with:
Seattle by 11.
Baltimore and 7 points.
Dallas and 6 points.
Indianapolis and 7 points.

I actually liked Google+'s video of my year better than what Facebook came up with. Like most years, I can't say it was a particular great year or a particularly bad year. There was, as usual, a little of both good and bad. But this video reflects the best of it: My pride in the accomplishments of Matthew Steven Greenbaum and Sarah Greenbaum. Also, I didn't earn a Purple Heart. That's probably one of the outliers in Google+'s attempt.

We'll talk about his experiences trying to lead innovation at Washingtonpost.com, Digital First Media, TBD.com and now, BillyPenn.com.

We'll spend some time with the former editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to learn more about her experience in newsrooms, coping with change over the years and what she sees in store for newsroom and newspapers going forward.

If I get out of work in time I'll be there (but it's not likely I will)!

Forgive me if this has been addressed earlier. I haven't been able to find it. Shouldn't I be able to embed a Timeline JS iframe onto a Google Sites page? The HTML option doesn't work and neither does the iframe gadget. What am I doing wrong?

I just changed the settings to only people on our intranet can view and the JS Timeline still worked fine. Strange.
