UCLA running back uses Oregon DB as a human ramp, stands on him, and falls into end zone for a touchdown

1 Share

That’s one way to finish a TD run.

This touchdown makes me feel anxious, but it’s incredible:

In a game against Oregon on Saturday, UCLA’s Bolu Olorunfunmi darted through a hole between his right guard and tackle. He got almost all the way to the end zone untouched, but he ran directly into an Oregon defensive back at the 2-yard line.

Olorunfunmi took matters into his own hands and got aerial.

Let me illustrate:

The defensive back getting turned into a human step stool here is Mattrell McGraw, who’s probably a perfectly nice kid. He didn’t deserve this fate, but football’s cruel sometimes.

There’s a voice in my head telling me that this is dangerous, and that voice is probably right. Olorunfunmi could’ve fallen directly on the back of his head, and that wouldn’t have been good. There are rules against things like leaping during field goal blocks, and they exist because heads are not supposed to bounce off turf.

It seems like everyone came out of this fine, though, except McGraw and Oregon.

Georgia city will rename itself Amazon if it wins the new headquarters

2 Shares

As North American cities vie for the chance to be chosen by Amazon as the home of its second headquarters, one Georgia city has stepped up to the plate. The city council of Stonecrest, Georgia voted 4 to 2 on Monday to change its name to Amazon, Georgia and give the company 345 acres of land if Amazon selects it as the HQ destination, according to local media.

Amazon, Georgia doesn’t quite have the same ring as say, Toyota City — headquarters to Toyota Motors in Japan — but it definitely makes for a unique (if desperate) offer. “There are several major US cities that want Amazon, but none has the branding opportunity we are now offering this visionary company,” said the city’s mayor, Jason Lary.

Fashionably Late But Worth The Wait

2 Shares

It’s looking like smartphones are here to stay. (You heard it here first, folks!) In which case—you don’t have to tell us twice—we thought that a mobile budgeting app would be most useful if it had, you know, budgeting capabilities.

Drum roll, please …

We’ve been dying to show you, and are pleased to introduce, the all-new, full-featured YNAB mobile app! We may be fashionably late to the party, but (hopefully) we’re worth the wait!

Are You Ready for All of the Features?

Yep. Now you can do all of your budgeting right from your phone …

Designed to Make Budgeting Easy

The new app is easy and intuitive to use, yes, but even better? With notification banners and alert badges, your budget will let you know when it needs attention (like, on payday—or after you’ve overspent).

No matter where you are, with just a few taps, you can update your budget. And who doesn’t like a current budget? (That’s how you find financial peace … or wiggle room for a new pair of shoes. Or both!)

Full Flexibility for Shifting Priorities

Whether you’re starting a brand-new budget, or just want to reorganize your current categories, you can do it all from the comfort of your couch. We like our desktop app, but you won’t need it. No joke, this app does everything. Netflix-and-Budget-Chilling is now a thing!

Let Direct Import Do the Heavy Lifting

Got a few awkward minutes to kill? Whip out your phone and import those transactions so that you’re always operating with the latest information. Remember, what gets monitored gets managed (and improved!).

The Right Information for Better Decisions

With automatic syncing, no matter what device you prefer—mobile, tablet or desktop, PC or iOS—you will always have the right data in real time. (Or maybe, more importantly, your partner will always have right data?)

Automate Your Financial Wins!

Turn your budget into a game, with goals! Did a trip to the llama pen at your local zoo inspire a vacay to Machu Picchu next August? Want to be credit card debt-free by December? Make a goal and make it happen, from anywhere.

More Motivation, More Progress

Once you’ve got your financial priorities in order, and your budget is primed for success, it’s time to work your plan. Stay inspired with a taste of victory at every step—with YNAB eye candy reports! Our graphs and charts make it easy to check your progress, helping you stay on track to achieve your wildest budgeting goals.

What Are You Waiting For?

Do not pass “Go”. Do not collect $200. Just update your YNAB app (iOs / Android), and join the launch day fun!

We can’t wait to hear how you like the new YNAB mobile app, and how it impacts—dare we say, improves—your budgeting!

The post Fashionably Late But Worth The Wait appeared first on YNAB.
