Williams, however, admits he won’t truly know that he’ll be able to play again until he takes a hit in training camp. That puts the Bills in a tough spot, because how much can they really count on him? If the team were to release him before the start of the 2016 league year, with a June 1 designation, they should be able to avoid paying him a $1 million roster bonus and $100,000 workout bonus, both of which are typically paid out in the spring.

RR represented a move toward the future of college football. That move may have been wrong, but this isn the time to panic and try to correct it because we aren and 4 after losing to USC in the Rose Bowl as usual. There are clearly better coaches out there, but we need to wait until one of them is available.

At least one travel lane will remain open to traffic at all times. Flaggers will assist with traffic control as needed. Estimated project completion date is November. A line of rain over the plains will cause flooding there, but as it has stalled, we will only manage to get a steady stream of clouds with the rain holding off for now. We will not warm up much at all. We are starting the week with a lot of clouds, but very little in the way of rain.

Look at employment first. The figures below display the coefficients for period dummies (along with their confidence intervals) from an estimation that regresses the employment share of manufactures on log population, log population squared, log per capita income, log per capita income squared, a full set of country dummies, and period dummies (with the pre 1960 years excluded). They show the unexplained components of the manufacturing employment share for each period, relative to the pre 1960 period.
