In the perhaps not-so-distant future, NFL players will be able to monetize intimate data about their body. 

The NFL Players Association recently closed a deal with Whoop, a wearable tech company that makes wristbands that track heart rate, sleep quality, and more. 

Whoop will now hand out wristbands to NFL players who will own the data produced by their wearables and can sell that information to, as Bloomberg wrote, a network that could then broadcast the heart rate of that player throughout a particular game. 

Players don't have to sell their data, and they don't even have to wear the wristbands. But if they do both, it could provide some pretty fascinating insights. Read more...

Anger at GOP-abetting turncoat Democrats in New York spurs talk of primary challenges
Source:  Daily Kos
Tuesday, 25 April 2017 21:00

While New York is a heavily Democratic state, the GOP has run the state Senate almost nonstop for decades. Democrats actually won a nominal 32-31 majority in 2016, but the eight-member Independent Democratic Conference continues to keep the Republican leadership in power, while a ninth Democrat, Simcha Felder, outright caucuses with the GOP. The Republican-led chamber has spent years blocking progressive policies like a state-level DREAM Act, which would provide tuition assistance to undocumented immigrant students.

However, Trump’s presidency has left Democratic activists far less patient with politicians who help the Republicans, and after a protracted budget battle, other state Democrats are looking to unseat some IDC members in Democratic primaries. In a recent Times Union article, Chris Bragg took a look at who might challenge members of the IDC in primaries. To help follow along, Stephen Wolf has created an interactive map, which each Senate seat colored based on whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump won it, and whether the seat is held by a Republican, a mainstream Democrat, an IDC member, or a Simcha Felder. You can find the 2012 and 2016 presidential results for each seat here.

The most vulnerable member may be Queens state Sen. Tony Avella, who represents a seat that Clinton carried 61-36. In 2014, the Queens Democratic Party made a serious effort to oust Avella, but ex-state city Comptroller John Liu lost the primary 53-47. Avella is currently running against New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio this year, but he has little money or support. In the event that Avella sticks around to defend his seat, he may face a rematch with Liu, whom Bragg reports is considering another bid. City Councilman Paul Vallone has also been mentioned as a possible candidate, while fellow Councilor Rory Lancman didn’t rule out his own campaign, though he said it was unlikely. In New York it only takes a plurality of the vote to win a primary, so in any of these contests, it would be a nightmare for mainstream Democrats if too many candidates run and split the vote.
