Le’Veon Bell got lots of money from Jets for little work, but still sold himself short

If the goal was to obtain the most amount of money in exchange for the least amount of football, then certainly Le’Veon Bell scored big.

When he was released Tuesday by the Jets — the organization declaring it was “in the interest of both parties” — he had received $28,031,250 in exchange for 17 games, 264 carries, 69 receptions, four touchdowns and 1,363 net yards gained.

You may divide any of those football statistics into his exorbitant paycheck and get a staggering quotient. For instance: $20,565.84 per yard. That 2-yard run on the Jets’ second play from scrimmage in Sunday’s ludicrous 30-10 loss to the Cardinals’? That was $41,131.69 right there.

Cha-ching.

If the goal was to be a successful professional football player and maximize his earning potential as well as his athletic accomplishments, however, no one should pretend Bell did

Intentional COVID-19 infections of students worries Idaho college

BYU-Idaho says it will seek out and possibly expel students who may have intentionally tried to be infected with the coronavirus.

An Idaho college says it is “deeply troubled” by reports that people in its community may have intentionally exposed themselves to the coronavirus in the hopes of being paid more for plasma donations that could contain COVID-19 antibodies.

BYU-Idaho, located in the southeastern town of Rexburg, says it is actively searching to find out if any of its students have done this.

“Students who are determined to have intentionally exposed themselves or others to the virus will be immediately suspended from the university and may be permanently dismissed,” the university said in a statement.

Some private blood banks pay more for plasma that contains COVID-19 antibodies.

The university cautioned last month that it may have to shut down the campus and switch to an all-remote learning format if a

Press release content from Newswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

TORONTO – October 14, 2020 – ( Newswire.com )

​​​Kids are like sponges when it comes to new concepts, making this the perfect time to teach financial literacy. Research shows that the younger you teach children about money, the more independent and responsible they will be as adults. This is why Treasure exists. Treasure, a mobile money management app has been built to teach kids the value of money, fun ways to earn and save their allowance and money received through gifts.

“Financial literacy is a key life skill, but schools don’t teach finance-related courses properly until middle school or high school, and I think that is not only crazy but also way too late to form good habits,” said Matt O’Leary, CEO of Treasure. “Kids need money skills as soon

If you’re lucky enough to have the funds you need despite all the recent economic turbulence, ask yourself one key question, says Bradley T. Klontz, an associate professor of financial psychology at Creighton University: “Why is it OK for you to have money when other people don’t?”

Answering this question is not about comparing your finances to anyone else’s, he told The New York Times. It’s about seeing money as a tool, rather than as a measuring stick.

The best value-for-money signings around Europe this transfer window

Luis Suárez, Barcelona to Atlético Madrid (£5.5m)

The transfer story of the summer was a move that didn’t happen, but while Lionel Messi stayed at Barcelona, several high-profile teammates were ushered out. Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and Rafinha left for cut-price fees but the departure of Suárez caused the most anger – not least with Messi. “You did not deserve for them to throw you out like they did,” the Argentinian told his strike partner via Instagram.

Suárez has said the manner of his departure reduced him to tears, but it may be Barça who look back with regret. Having initially tried to dictate his destination, the club were forced to let Suárez join Atlético for a £5.5m fee made up entirely of variables. The Uruguayan may be nearly 34 but forcing out such a pivotal

Dagen McDowell blasts ‘sexist’ Whitehouse for ‘hypocritical’ speech on ‘dark money’ at Barrett hearing

Senate Judiciary Committee member Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., spent the time allotted for him to question Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett Tuesday on a “hypocritical monologue” that claimed “dark money” was behind her nomination, “The Five” co-host Dagen McDowell argued.

“I wanted to talk about Sheldon Whitehouse and the hypocritical monologue or lecture that he hacked up in front of her,” McDowell began. “[He didn’t] ask her one question. Not one. He implied that Amy Coney Barrett is not there because of her accomplishments, because of her intellect, because of how she’s lived her life, but that she’s there because she’s a pawn of dark money.

“Hypocrite! You know what that also is?” she asked. “That’s sexist. Let me call him out on it.”

McDowell recounted how Whitehouse, a former federal prosecutor, offered a 30-minute dissertation on how the Federalist Society and Judicial Crisis Network have purportedly conspired to spend
