Anthony Davis' big game helps New Orleans Pelicans edge out Miami Heat 124-123 in overtime.

Fresh off the NBA's All-Star break, the Miami Heat started the game off by taking a 10-2 lead. However, Pelicans' All-Star Anthony Davis would help his team get right back into it, with the Pelicans trailing by just 27-22 at the end of the first quarter. Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside would help the Heat keep a lead throughout the second quarter, and an Anthony Davis dunk would cut the lead to 59-57 at halftime. Fast forward to the fourth quarter, the Heat would even the game on a pair of free throws from Dwyane Wade with 34.6 seconds remaining. Anthony Davis would later hot a 16-foot jumper to give his team the lead, but a subsequent jumper from Dragic would even the game back up at 108-108 with 14 seconds remaining in the fourth. Anthony Davis would miss a layup to win the game, and Wade would call time out with 0.8 seconds remaining. The Heat's ally-oop attempt would fail and the game would go into overtime.

In overtime, a James Johnson layup and a Dwyane Wade 13-foot jumper would put the Heat up 121-119 before an Anthony Davis three-point play put the Pelicans up 122-121. Wade would then hit a fadeaway jumper to put the Heat up 123-122 with 21.7 seconds remaining in overtime. Jrue Holiday would then hit a go-ahead floater with 7.3 seconds remaining to give the Pelicans the slight edge. With no timeouts remaining, Wade would bring the ball up court and miss a jumper to win the game.

Anthony Davis had 45 points (17/34 FG), 2 assists, 17 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 blocks.
Jrue Holiday had 29 points (11/20 FG), 9 assists, and 7 rebounds.
Ian Clark had 21 points (3/5 3PT), 4 rebounds, and 2 steals.

Hassan Whiteside had 19 points (9/12 FG) and 16 rebounds.
Dwyane Wade had 16 points (7/20 FG) and 5 rebounds.

Both Robert Mueller and Donald Trump attended elite all-male private schools, were accomplished high school athletes and went on to Ivy League colleges. Yet Mueller and Trump, born 22 months apart in New York City, also can seem to come from different planets.

Humanity is the biggest religion
“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)... There are just some kind of men who - who're so busy worrying about the next world they've never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.”
― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Bitten by a fairy?

Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Svartskog, Norway

This otherwise perfect specimen has lost a chunk that will never be repaired and makes this mushroom look rather mutilated. Yet this is more the norm than not, which makes finding a perfect specimen difficult and requiring on a lot of luck.

This is from a ravenous slug having had a feast in the dark of night, which makes this frustrating as during the day they are nowhere to be seen and you can locate a beautiful specimen only to find it completely demolished the next morning.

Thus, as with life as a whole, never postpone. Never wait for a tomorrow, as now is when you have all the opportunities in the world to harvest what is available.

That said, I do find this artistic and beautiful as it is a beautifully carved bite and often a mushroom is crisscrossed with holes like a Swiss cheese and looking like a complete mess. This one is for a brief moment a piece of art.

This was shot in the very last minutes of daylight and I assume the slugs were already on their way to gnawing off another piece of the mushroom, making it much less of art and more of a disaster.

THIS WEEK IN space we’re staying within our solar system. After all, there’s a lot to see! We’ll begin with our neighbor Mars and its moons Phobos and Deimos. Mars only has the two, and they’re very small—Phobos is only seven miles wide and Deimos, four miles. Several mission proposals have suggested we explore these moons before humans plant their boots onto the Martian soil; the moons are likely made of Mars-type stuff, and their low gravity would make it relatively easy to launch a return mission. Imagine an astronaut with a control pad while hanging out on Phobos, controlling a scientific rover on Mars—it might happen!

Comments Disabled You guys are not getting it. Take your debate elsewhere.

I've got very little time for the NRA and I don't know anything about Dana Loesch. I'm generally pro- gun law reform.

But ...Ms Loesch is, I think, 100% right. And it's not just true of mass shootings. Mass media news outlets love disasters.

It's a rare condition in this day and age
to read any good news on the newspaper page.
