With just four days before the 2014 NBA Draft, former Baylor C Isaiah Austin was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome, ending his potential NBA career before it could even start. The genetic condition was discovered during pre-draft medical evaluations. Austin came out of HS as the #4 player in the country (to Rivals) and played two solid, if unspectacular, seasons at Baylor. Prior to his sophomore season, Austin acknowledged that he's blind in his right eye, making his ascension towards the NBA even more impressive. Now it's all over before he got his chance. Terrible, sad turn of events; that being considered, he seems to be handling it with maturity, per his tweets quoted in the article linked below.

12:53pm...so far 0-0 in the Belguim/Russia match, neither team looks good (which is good for Group G, because the top two are likely to play these two teams).
"The fact is that the Magnus Effect can change sign," Bush says. "People don't generally appreciate that fact." Given an absolutely smooth ball, the direction of the curve may reverse: The same kicking motion will not produce a shot or pass curving in a right-to-left direction, but in a left-to-right direction.
Why is this? Bush says it is due to the way the surface of the ball creates motion at the "boundary layer" between the spinning ball and the air. The rougher the ball, the easier it is to create the textbook version of the Magnus Effect, with a "positive" sign: The ball curves in the expected direction."
Without futher ado:

Will be interesting to see if there are any other SNRE (School of Natural Resources and Environment) or PITE (Program in the Environment) alums out there, but came across this new bike jersey that was designed for this year's SNRE Climate Ride team. I'm a big fan of the design. Especially the use of green in the back and winged helmet on the sleeves.
As far as I know, designs for other U of M schools (business, engineering, etc.) were not done. I'll be looking into how to purchase one of these jerseys and whether or not you have been a part of SNRE and you're interested in purchasing one too, I'll pass along the information as it's aquired.
If interested, let Mr. Brenner know your size and mailing address via email before Friday. I believe he's putting in an order early next week: email@example.com
Then send him a check / money order made out to the University of Michigan for $70.
