“That’s a great luxury to have, when you have three guys you can go to at any moment in the game,” Hoiberg said. “I give our guys a lot of credit for locating the mismatch and playing to it, whoever that might be on a given night. A lot of times that is Georges.” Niang has been a key player for the Cyclones since the moment he joined them last season. Now that he’s more experienced and in much better shape, Niang has quietly become one of the best players in the Big 12. Niang came on toward the end of his freshman season, finishing with 12.1 points a game and earning Big 12 all-rookie honors. Niang finished with the fourth-most points by a freshman in school history and matched his previous career game high of 19 in Iowa State’s win over Notre Dame in the NCAA tournament. Niang realized that he needed to greatly improve his conditioning. He renewed his focus on fitness in the offseason and dropped 10 pounds without losing any strength. He says it also helped his defense. “There were definitely times where I felt like I didn’t have anything left in the tank last year. But I feel like that rarely happens this year,” Niang said.

The young man with whom Elvis met for the date has been ruled out as a suspect, a source close to the investigation told FoxNews.com.

Nabil Farrag in Cairo, Egypt. The head of Egypts military, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, is riding on a wave of popular fervor that is almost certain to carry him to election as president.AP February 15, 2014: Textile workers strike to demand a minimum wage, the removal of their company’s head and the head of the firm’s holding company, and back pay of yearly bonuses in Mahalla al-Kobra, Egypt. (AP Photo/Sabry Khaled, El Shorouk Newspaper) Next Slide Previous Slide CAIRO Egypt’s interim prime minister announced Monday the resignation of his Cabinet, a surprise move that could be designed in part to pave the way for the nation’s military chief to leave his defense minister’s post to run for president. Hazem el-Beblawi’s military-backed government was sworn in on July 16, less than two weeks after Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the defense minister, ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi after a year in office. Its ministers will remain in their posts in a caretaker capacity until the president picks a prime minister to form a new Cabinet. The government’s resignation, announced by el-Beblawi in a live TV broadcast, came amid a host of strikes, including one by public transport workers and garbage collectors. An acute shortage of cooking gas has also been making front page news the past few days. Egypt’s political system gives most powers to the president. The prime minister usually handles day-to-day economic management, but does not set key policies.

Georgetown won 74-52. (AP Photo/Nick Wass)The Associated Press Next Slide Previous Slide Baylor appears to be back on the right side of the bubble after a strong run over the past two weeks. Coming off a difficult stretch that had the Bears teetering away from an NCAA tournament bid, they put themselves back in the conversation with a four-game winning streak capped by Saturday’s decisive road victory over West Virginia. “We’ve got to keep working hard to get to the tournament,” said Baylor’s Royce O’Neal, who scored a season-high 22 points against the Mountaineers. “But this means a lot against a good team that had been playing well.” It’s certainly a good step for a team that had been reeling. Baylor opened the season 13-2, its only losses to Syracuse and Iowa State.

He gets coverage through his wifes employer and believes the ACA is causing premiums to rise. Health care is something that we definitely need to focus on and improve, Meyer said. Im just not sure this was ultimately the right answer, but maybe it gets us closer to where we need to be. The results of the Minnesota Poll come from interviews with 800 adults between Feb. 10 and 12, and have a sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. The divisions over the federal health care law reflect some of the challenges state officials face as they try to get Minnesotans enrolled in coverage by the end of open enrollment on March 31. Weve been working really hard to improve the customer experience, said MNsure interim CEO Scott Leitz, who acknowledges that the site is improved but not perfect. Leitz said the poll results werent a surprise. A new marketing campaign launched last week aims to break through the rash of bad publicity about technical problems with the website and to encourage uninsured Minnesotans to shop on MNsure. A key goal of the exchange is to help the nearly 500,000 Minnesotans who are uninsured buy coverage. So far, about 101,000 people have used the website to buy insurance coverage, and efforts to improve the site and add staff to the call center are ongoing. Republican lawmakers already are promising to use MNsures tumult as a campaign issue, emphasizing that it is a failure of big government. As DFL Gov.

The update fixed a security issue that is extremely serious a flaw in Apples implementation of SSL, the encryption used to access the Internet. Apples note on the update indicates just how critical this issue is : Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS In other words, anything you send across the Internet could be intercepted or changed. Your communications are compromised without the patch. I know a lot of people delay or even ignore operating system updates, but doing so now will put you at serious risk. Apple made the patch available for those running iOS 7 and iOS 6.1. Theres even a patch for the version of iOS running on Apple TV. Use the software update on these devices to fix the flaw ASAP. The flaw was caused by a single error in whats known as a goto call . In programming, goto directs action from one place to another in the code. In this case, the error directs the program to go around the authentication system. Generally, using goto is considered lazy programming, and this issue makes it clear as to why.

Minnesota Poll: Party split felt over MNsure, health reform
BY MARIANNE GARVEY, BRIAN NIEMIETZ AND LACHLAN CARTWRIGHT Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 2:42 AM Joe Kohen/Getty Images Piers Morgan ‘didn’t show any respect’ to some of the people he worked with, one insider says. His own co-workers are glad hes getting the boot. Staffers at Piers Morgan Tonight are actually relieved that CNN has canceled the show, sources tell Confidenti@l. He was always such an a—— to people working for him, one insider says of the bombastic Brit. Morgans last show is likely to be this week, but no specific date has been set. We hear it was low ratings and a bad attitude that killed it, and the decision was made by network boss Jeff Zucker. The makeup girls suffered the worst he was rude and belligerent, says our source. The general feeling is Morgan didnt show any respect to anyone working under him the people who were trying to make him look good. ASSOCIATED PRESS RELATED: ‘PIERS MORGAN LIVE’ TO BE CANCELED BY CNN Last Thursday, Piers Morgan was seen by just 364,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. That was easily beaten by Fox News The Kelly File (1.9 million) and MSNBCs Rachel Maddow Show (925,000). Morgan was questioned in November in London by cops investigating phone hacking, but a CNN spokeswoman said that interview was not a factor in his show being canned.

And why he has decided to hang it up when his term ends. Dingell is still up to the job, he insisted, though he is a frail 87 years old. The problem, he said, is Congress itself. I find serving in the House to be obnoxious , he told the Detroit News , which on Monday broke the story that Dingell plans to retire. Its become very hard because of the acrimony and bitterness, both in Congress and in the streets. Is it fixable? Dingell said in an interview with The Washington Post. Theres only one person that can fix it, and theres only one group of people that can answer that question, and thats the voters. If they want it to change, it will change. Having served 59 years longer than anyone in the history of Congress Dingell (D-Mich.) left his imprint on legislation that ranged from the establishment of Medicare to environmental laws to civil rights legislation.
