The National Football League wants a better helmet, and for the first time, it’s willing to pay for it.  The NFL Helmet Challenge is a $3 million, 18-month contest to see who can create a piece of equipment that outperforms anything in use. The money includes $2 million in development capital and a further $1 million winner’s prize.

The competition, the NFL said, will bring together manufacturers, engineers and entrepreneurs amid heightened awareness of the risks of repetitive head trauma. It’s the next step in the league’s so-called Engineering Roadmap, a league-funded initiative aimed at a better understanding of the biomechanics of head injuries. www.PlaySmartPlaySafe.com/NFLHelmetChallenge

Congrats to

Did You Know?  In 1933, Entrepreneur William Gilbert Peacock and his son sought to make sure that everyone was able to have the benefits of vegetables in their diet and that nutrition was accessible to all – during the food crisis of the Great Depression.  Through trial and error and a basement full of veggies – they juiced and blended, all by hand, many different varieties until they found the perfect mixture of 8 ingredients: Tomato, beets, carrots, celery, spinach, parsley, lettuce, and watercress  (and don’t forget SALT)

*The terrorist group ISIS took over control of Mosul, Iraq in June of 2014.

Mosul was finally liberated in July 2017!

Artists and art – if found – were subjected to torture even death!

*BTW: During ISIS, the Art Department at Mosul University was used to make bombs and bullets.  Not anymore!
