both the houston dynamo and san jose earthquakes sit above the red line heading into may, a welcome sign for teams that haven't seen postseason action since 2012 (san jose) and 2013 (houston). but could things be going even better for the two western conference sides?the dynamo currently have a positive goal differential while the quakes are on the negative side of that statistic, but the expected goals numbers for both teams tell a slightly different story.houston have scored 15 goals this season, good for the third-most in mls, but the expected goals figures show that they have been slightly lucky to do so. that figure sits at 11.13 according to data provided by opta, meaning that on average – based on their quality of chances – they would be expected to score 11.13 goals. the fa...

advertisement computers have become more powerful and more portable, letting you execute some compute-intensive tasks on your laptop. but internet connections have also become incredible faster, making it much easier to outsource some tasks to servers sitting in a data center.most of the apps on your phone already rely on a server component to store and process your data. when you post a video on facebook, it gets re-encoded into multiple formats on the server so that other users can stream your video in sd, hd, etc.but i think this trend is going to become even more important in the coming years, with all your devices acting as a simple screen into your stuff running on servers in data centers near you.first, internet connection speeds and latency need to improve drastically for everyone....

* tottenham’s success under mauricio pochettino will not be defined by their performance in comparison with arsenal’s, but by trophies and trinkets. yet for a group of supporters who have been taunted and teased for over 20 years about their inability to finish above their local rivals, this was a day of celebration.arsenal’s decline only makes tottenham’s progress more pronounced. one of these clubs has embraced their battle against the premier league’s financial elite, developing their own, buying young and searching for well-priced bargains. the other is an old dog that refused to learn new tricks. the promises that it now will have come far too long after the fat lady cleared her throat. arsenal are playing catching up on catch-up; tottenham are leading the way.the away su...

2017 has been a bona fide hellscape of a year. donald trump is president of the united states, there's a very extremely real possibility of a nuclear war breaking out over a tweet, and there's a revolving door of presidential cabinet members who are constantly being forced to resign. it feels like a bad, feebly-produced reality show scripted by the world's laziest writers. which reminded me of the greatest worst reality show of all time: next on mtv. see also: 8 clarifications sean spicer would like to make from his easter children's book readingsitting in a room and yelling "next!" whenever a member of his staff has to resign because of russian ties or committing perjury feels exactly like how donald trump treats his hiring process. so i took it upon myself and imagined the gop's brigh...

boston — for different reasons, the washington wizards and boston celtics exemplify the merits of patient team building. they won’t be celebrated for it, however. patience is a sin to the passionate.the wizards have advanced to the eastern conference semifinals for the third time in four years, and after missing the playoffs last season, they’re back with a team that’s closer to being complete and set up for prolonged contention. but it’s impossible for many to get past the stumbles that have occurred during a long process and appreciate how the difficulties of the journey relate to enjoyment of the destination.in their third playoff appearance with isaiah thomas and a mostly young core, the celtics have finally advanced a round, and with a 1-0 series lead over washington, they...
