After Fox 2000‘s space race drama “Hidden Figures” was released last year, an unprecedented amount of United States embassies were reportedly calling the State Department requesting the film. Eventually the movie was screened to nearly 80 locations overseas and because of all those screenings, a new, publicly funded exchange program will bring women from around the world working in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to the United States.

The program, called #HiddenNoMore, will bring 50 women from 50 different countries who are working in STEM fields to the United States. The chosen participants will travel to Washington in October before traveling across the country for three weeks meeting with universities, Girl Scouts, and other organizations.

Top 5 Sleeper Picks for the Upcoming Fantasy Season


Now that most NFL training camps are officially underway, fans can truly begin to scout players out for their Fantasy Football squad(s).

Each and every year the league is overwhelmed with a variety of sleeper players who almost always become (fantasy) league threats.

Here are my top sleeper picks for this upcoming NFL season:

5. Terrance West, RB, Baltimore Ravens

With Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon going down and out with a knee injury before training camps even began, West figures to see a much bigger workload alongside newly added veteran RB Danny Woodhead.

West has shown flashes of fantasy potential in the past, especially last year after garnering a lot of carries in the Baltimore backfield. Keep an eye out on West getting close to 20 carries a game this year, a nice uptick from last season.

Last summer the Olympics caused an off year from this budding relationship with Africa, but the spectacle in Johannesburg’s Ticketpro Dome lived up to the hype. Although not much hype built in the U.S. for the game, African fans wanted to see Team Africa get revenge from 2015’s loss to Team World.

Whether you were rooting for African pride or simply a game packed with NBA entertainment you were not disappointed. With the likes of Kristaps Porzingis (New York Knicks), Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors), Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets), and Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks) lining up for Team World against Serge Ibaka (Toronto Raptors), Emmanuel Mudiay (Denver Nuggets), and Victor Oladipo (Indiana Pacers) for Team Africa the game could be advertised as NBA All Star Game Africa 2017. Team World lived up to…

Despite winning 31 game in the past season, the Minnesota Timberwolves look to turn things around after a busy offseason.

The Timberwolves made quite a few signings and trades during the offseason to upgrade their team. During the NBA Draft, they traded Zach Lavine, Kris Dunn, and the No. 7 overall pick to the Chicago Bulls for Jimmy Butler and the 16th overall pick. In free agency, they signed a new point guard, Jeff Teague, to a 3 yr/$57 million deal, after trading Ricky Rubio to the Utah Jazz. They also acquired veteran players Taj Gibson to a 2 yr/$28 million contract, and Jamal Crawford to a 2 yr/$8 million agreement. Even though the Timberwolves traded away their starting point guard, Ricky Rubio to create cap space, and Dunn and Lavine, both very young players with plenty…
