Checking in on former Blue Jacket players

Now that we are a quarter of the way through the 2021-2022 season, I thought this would be a good time to check on a few former Columbus Blue Jackets. In order to keep this article from getting out of control, I decided to limit the scope to players that were Blue Jackets at some point in the previous two seasons. That would exclude guys like Artemi Panarin, Matt Duchene, and Sergei Bobrovsky. Those ships have sailed and that part of Columbus history is long gone. Let’s begin with the former Captain himself.

NHL Prospects on the rise in 2021-2022

The 2017 draft wasn’t the most top-heavy but I remember it had me really excited. I remember going through the names and getting excited about this group of players that was going to come in and make a splash. Here we are, about four years removed and some names like Miro Heiskanen, Cale Makar, Elias Pettersson, and Jake Oettinger are really making a mark. Others that I was optimistic on like Lias Andersson, Nolan Patrick, and Callan Foote, not so much. Some picks shine immediately and others can take form later on. Below are a few who are showing an uptick in their value but are still quite low in ownership.

Hello Wisconsin: A Bye Week Breather Before the Sprint to the Finish

I’m not sure I can remember a time where the Packers were in greater need of a bye week than they were coming into this past weekend’s game against the Rams. The fact that the Packers are 9-3 with tiebreaking victories over two of the top teams in the conference despite all of their injuries is nothing short of miraculous, and it’s due to incredible coaching by Matt LaFleur and his staff. Outside of the team’s dud in the opener, they’ve come ready to play every single week no matter the conditions.

Driving without insurance in Mississippi

this post may contain references to products from our partners. Here's an explanation for. Like most states, Mississippi requires drivers to carry at least minimum levels of liability insurance coverage. Despite this legal requirement, Mississippi has the highest estimated rate of uninsured motorists in the country. This could be one reason why insurance costs in Mississippi are above the national average. Over 29% of drivers are estimated to be driving uninsured in the Magnolia State, but driving without insurance is a serious offense and can have major legal and financial consequences.

Elastic Correlation Adjusted Regression (ECAR) scores for high dimensional variable importance measuring

Investigation of the genetic basis of traits or clinical outcomes heavily relies on identifying relevant variables in molecular data. However, characteristics such as high dimensionality and complex correlation structures of these data hinder the development of related methods, resulting in the inclusion of false positives and negatives. We developed a variable importance measure method, termed the ECAR scores, that evaluates the importance of variables in the dataset. Based on this score, ranking and selection of variables can be achieved simultaneously. Unlike most current approaches, the ECAR scores aim to rank the influential variables as high as possible while maintaining the grouping property, instead of selecting the ones that are merely predictive. The ECAR scores' performance is tested and compared to other methods on simulated, semi-synthetic, and real datasets. Results showed that the ECAR scores improve the CAR scores in terms of accuracy of variable selection and high-rank variables' predictive power. It also outperforms other classic methods such as lasso and stability selection when there is a high degree of correlation among influential variables. As an application, we used the ECAR scores to analyze genes associated with forced expiratory volume in the first second in patients with lung cancer and reported six associated genes.
