Congratulations on surviving the first five weeks of the season. In season long play do the bye week have you down? Are you bench and injured reserve slots decimated with players designated as Doubtful, Out or actually really on IR. If that has you feeling down and you are seeking a much-needed morale boost, look no further as you can turn to DFS. I am here to help you. We’re back in action for Week 6!

Let’s plunge into the world of Money Makers and Heart Breakers. I’ll will help you navigate the treacherous waters of the Week 6 NFL DFS Main Slate. And don’t forget, you can also use these insights as sit/start advice for your weekly lineups. Time to dominate!

Here is a brief definition of each of my terms for anyone that might be new:

💰 Money Maker – This player will perform better than expectations

💔 Heart Breaker – This player will perform lower than expectations

💰 Money Makers


Kirk Cousins –  Cousins has lost his top target due to injury. Losing Justin Jefferson will hurt Cousins almost as much as it did your fantasy team. But I am here to tell you all is not lost. Cousins has multiple touchdown passes in every game this season. He will keep that streak rolling against the Bears in Week 6. Why you ask? Because the Bears give up the most fantasy points to the quarterback position. The Bears have given up 12 touchdowns on the season to quarterbacks Every quarterback to play them has either had multiple touchdowns or a 300-yard game. Cousins is a great play that others may avoid because he is missing his top target. SKOL!

Purdue prof wins prize for research that makes construction sites safer |

Hubo Cai, interim head for the School of Construction Management Technology at Purdue Polytechnic and professor in the College of Engineering, has been awarded the 2023 Alfred Noble Prize by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The award recognizes Cai’s groundbreaking research on 3D location tracking, enhancing construction site safety, Purdue said in a news release.

The Alfred Noble Prize, established in 1929, commemorates the achievements of Alfred Noble, past president of ASCE. It is funded by an endowment from engineers and other individuals to honor Noble’s legacy and dedication to the engineering community. The award is a testament to Cai’s accomplishments in construction technology and civil engineering.

“Robust Hybrid Approach of Vision-Based Tracking and Radio-Based Identification and Localization for 3D Tracking of Multiple Construction Workers” was coauthored with Jiannan Cai in July 2020. Cai presents a novel framework that combines multi-view camera tracking with radio wave identification, according to the release. This innovation addresses limitations of other methods and enhances the accuracy of 3D tracking for multiple on-site construction workers.

Cai’s research shows that camera and radio integration allows digital systems to know where specific site workers are located at any given moment. This ensures safety on construction sites via better management and increased situational awareness. It can help prevent accidents, especially where workers might be hit by moving objects or vehicles. 

Cai’s hybrid approach treats visual tracking from cameras as a primary source to determine object locations. Radio signals are used to complement visual data, providing identity information and correcting errors in object detection. Cai’s two indoor experiments showcased an accuracy increase of 88% to 95% and 87% to 90%, compared to a conventional camera-only approach.

“This award is a testament to Dr. Cai’s exemplary research and dedication to advancing the field of construction management technology,”

Web Development with Agency

Exploring Different elevations of Development Work.

Website agencies play a crucial role in designing, developing, and maintaining websites for businesses and individuals. Within these agencies, various types of development work take place to bring websites to life. In this article, we will delve into the different types of development work commonly found in website agencies, highlighting their unique characteristics and contributions to the website development process.

Front-End Development

Front-end development focuses on the visual and interactive aspects of a website. Front-end developers use technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create the user-facing elements of a website.

They ensure that the website is visually appealing, responsive, and user-friendly. Front-end developers collaborate closely with designers to implement the design vision and optimize user experience across different devices and screen sizes.

Back-End Development

Back-end development deals with the server-side aspects of website functionality. Back-end developers work with programming languages like PHP, Python, or Node.js to build the server logic, handle data storage and retrieval, and manage the website’s core functionality.

They interact with databases, implement security measures, and ensure smooth communication between the front-end and back-end systems. Back-end developers focus on performance, scalability, and maintaining the integrity of the website’s data.

Full-Stack Development

Full-stack developers possess expertise in both front-end and back-end development. They are proficient in a wide range of technologies, frameworks, and databases. Full-stack developers can handle all aspects of website development, from designing user interfaces to implementing server-side functionalities.

Their versatility allows them to work on different parts of the website independently or collaborate with specialized front-end and back-end developers.

Content Management System (CMS) Development

CMS development involves customizing and extending existing CMS platforms or building custom CMS solutions. CMS developers leverage frameworks like WordPress, Drupal, or Joomla to create websites with powerful content management capabilities.

They integrate themes,

Elon Musk’s X hit with trademark lawsuit from marketing agency

X Corp, formerly known as Twitter, was sued in federal court in Florida on Monday by a legal marketing company that claims the social media giant’s new name infringes its trademark incorporating the letter “X.” The lawsuit by X Social Media claims that X Corp, which owner Elon Musk began rebranding to X from Twitter in July, was likely to cause consumer confusion.

The case appears to be the first of what could be numerous trademark disputes with Musk’s company over the letter “X,” which is commonly used in tech branding. “X” is included in hundreds of federal trademarks owned by companies including Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Meta Platforms. X Corp applied for its own U.S. trademarks covering the letter last month.

X Corp did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the complaint. X Social Media declined to comment.

Windermere, Florida-based X Social Media is an ad agency focused on mass-tort litigation. Its website says that Jacob and Roseanna Malherbe founded the agency in 2015 to connect Florida panhandle residents with attorneys in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The lawsuit said the agency has used the “X Social Media” name since 2016 and owns a federal trademark covering it. It said it has invested more than $400 million in Facebook advertising to reach potential clients. The company said Twitter’s rebrand has already confused customers and caused it to lose revenue.

“In a short time, X Corp has wielded its social media clout, marketing resources, and overall national notoriety to dominate consumer perception of its ‘X’ mark,” the lawsuit said. X Social Media asked the court to force Musk’s company to stop using the “X” name and requested an unspecified amount of money damages.
