Thousands of people are without #power or running water, some are still trapped on their streets by downed trees. Houses have read more...

Nothing can be compared to playing your #guitar and enjoying the awesome sounds it produces. However, one common limitation to this is the difficulty in reaching certain finger placements which can be a result of playing with #small hands. It can be very annoying when you find it difficult to place your fingers at the right place and at the right time but can’t quite seem to get it.

Draymond Green and Tobias Harris represent just how much the #power forward #position has changed As the NBA has evolved in recent years, no position has changed more than power forward.

Consider: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Carmelo Anthony, and Ryan Anderson all start at the 4, but so do LaMarcus read more...
