I'm teaching astronomy for the first time this year.  The class will have a blog and one student will be designated each week to compile a 'terms list' consisting of any new vocab and/or names encountered during the week.  They'll post that to the blog as they go, other students can comment or ask questions.

Analyze before Betting

Traditionally, subcontinent pitches favor the spinners, while English, Australian and South African conditions favor the pace bowlers. Generally, the bookmakers will have taken this into account, but if we look a little deeper, we can often find good pointers for our…See More
