What Players Get Paid For Winning (or Playing In) The Super Bowl

What Players Get Paid For Winning (or Playing In) The Super Bowl | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
As the Patriots and Seahawks gear up for America's biggest game of the year in Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, each player on the losing team's 53-man roster is guaranteed a bonus check of $49,000 just for being there.

For the winning the team, the prize is a little sweeter, with a payout this year of $97,000, according to the 2014 NFL Media Guide. That means the journey from divisional leaders to Super Bowl champions pays out a total of $165,000 this year, a 5.1 percent increase from last season.

Faraway planet is lord of the rings

Faraway planet is lord of the rings | Amanda Carroll | Scoop.it
Astronomers said Wednesday they had found the first-ever ringed planet beyond our solar system, a super-world with a girdle of halos 200 times bigger than Saturn's. "It'd be huge! You'd see the rings and the gaps in the rings quite easily from Earth," Matthew Kenworthy of the Leiden Observatory in The Netherlands told AFP. Kenworthy and Eric Mamajec of New York's University of Rochester trawled through a database of millions of stars photographed by telescopes around the world in an exoplanet search project called SuperWASP. Exoplanets, worlds beyond our own Solar System, are observed from Earth through changes in the brightness of their central star.

Are you too busy?

Heard about this study where women were asked if they were too busy.  

 

20% of married women said yes

30 % of married women with children said yes

40% of single moms said yes

 

The rest of y'all are just lying... 

 

Busyiness is not a badge of honor.
