PROVO, Utah — A new study has found a simple way to increase your daily step count: just attach a pedometer.

The study, conducted by Brigham Young University, shows that wearing a pedometer increases step counts, even if users aren’t looking at it throughout the day.

“Humans are wired to respond to what gets measured, because if it gets measured, it feels important,” said Bill Tayler, professor at BYU Marriott School of Business and author of the paper. “When people go to buy an Apple Watch or a Fitbit, of course it will affect their behavior; they got the device for the purpose of walking more. But it is helpful for individuals to know that even without trying, just being aware that something is following your steps increases your activity.

The study found that those who used pedometers took an average of 318 more steps per day than those who didn’t have a tracker, even if they weren’t watching the pedometer or having specific fitness goals. .

“We wanted to know, in the absence of goals and incentives, does simple fitness tracking change behavior? Until this study, no one had convincingly shown what we have. shown – from an academic perspective, it turns out to be a very difficult question to answer,” Tayler said.

The reason this can be so difficult to measure is that to know if people are walking more with a pedometer, you need to know how much they walked before.

How did this group get this data? Iphones.

The iPhones have a step tracking number, for those already using it, it gave the team their step data before the pedometer.

Tayler said he received permission from participants to use their saved step history on their iPhones.

The team then gave participants a pedometer to wear, some without a display.

Networks’ new fall shows aren’t great, which isn’t good for local stations https://lindonutah.org/networks-new-fall-shows-arent-great-which-isnt-good-for-local-stations/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 13:01:54 +0000 https://lindonutah.org/networks-new-fall-shows-arent-great-which-isnt-good-for-local-stations/ I’ve been writing about new fall broadcast network shows since 1990, and I’ve never been more excited about the lineup than I am right now.

I’ve been writing about new fall broadcast network shows since 1990, and I’ve never been more excited about the lineup than I am right now.

That’s, in large part, because the huge corporations that own the broadcast networks have decided their future is in streaming. Thus, they are less interested and less likely to pour money into broadcast shows.

And you have to wonder how this is going to affect local TV stations across the country, including here in Utah.

It’s a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy. Disney (ABC), Paramount Global (CBS), Comcast (NBC) and Fox air less-than-glitter shows, which draw fewer and fewer viewers, leaving local affiliates — including KUTV-Ch. 2, KTVX-Ch. 4, KSL-Ch. 5 and KSTU-Ch. 13 in Salt Lake City – without the kind of support they have enjoyed in decades past.

How bad is it? Apparently, NBC is considering giving the last hour of prime time back to its affiliates – 9-10pm MT Monday through Saturday. In that case, don’t be surprised if KSL-Channel 5 adds another hour of local news. Because the zillions of hours of local TV hours that are currently airing on local stations just aren’t enough.

OK, that’s only about 33 hours of local TV news per weekday on local stations. And that’s not counting simulcasts, reruns and locally produced magazines.

But when it comes to entertainment shows on the networks, the fall season is pretty bleak. There is nothing fresh and innovative. It’s not all terrible – there are some seemingly good shows – but it’s more comfort food on TV than something that will challenge the palate.

Sunday

“The danger of celebrities!” (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4) • Mayim Bialik hosts a prime-time version that—you guessed it! – presents famous candidates. (Premieres September 25)

“Family law” (8 p.m., The CW/Ch. 30) • This Canadian import is a mundane legal drama about a lawyer with a troubled personal life who joins her father’s firm and works with her half-siblings. Its good. (October 2)

“East New York” (8 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2): Perfectly fine but all-too-familiar crime drama that centers on the new boss of a Brooklyn neighborhood (Amanda Warren) who faces resistance because of her gender. (October 2)

Monday

“Quantum Leap” (8 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): This sequel to the 1989-93 original features Raymond Song as a new scientist following in the footsteps of Scott Bakula’s character, jumping through time. I can’t tell you if it’s any good, because NBC scrapped the original pilot and shot a new one, which it hasn’t shown to critics as of yet. (September 19)

Tuesday

“Monarch” (Launched Sept. 11; airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox/Ch. 13): I Like Me A Good Primetime Soap. Unfortunately it is not. He wants to be a cross between “Dallas” and “Empire,” with a family of country music stars, but that’s just dumb, predictable, and lame. (September 20)

“The Recruit: The Feds” (9 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4) • I’ll be the first to tell you that I like “The Rookie,” even though it’s not a great detective series. It’s kind of the same thing. It works largely because Niecy Nash-Betts is so likeable as a middle-aged woman/newly minted FBI agent. It’s funny. (September 27)

“The Winchesters” (8 p.m., The CW/Ch. 30): I watched all 327 episodes of “Supernatural” from 2005 to 2020, even though it was getting increasingly confusing and, at the same time, repetitive. This prequel is set in the early 1970s and features Sam and Dean’s parents from “Supernatural” hunting monsters and demons. It’s definitely repetitive and unnecessary. (October 11)

“Professionals” (9 p.m., The CW/Ch.30). This Irish/South African series is about a security specialist (Smallville alum Tom Welling) who is hired by a billionaire (Brendan Fraser) after a rocket explodes at launch. It’s really bad. (October 11)

Wednesday

“The True Love Boat” (8 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2): Husband and wife Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn host this dating/contest show that takes place on a cruise ship. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it has yet to be previewed for reviewers. (October 5)

Thursday

“So Help Me Todd” (9:00 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2): A successful lawyer (Marcia Gay Harden) hires her scoundrel son (Skylar Astin) to be her investigator in this legal comedy/drama. I love the stars, but the writing of the pilot just isn’t good. (September 29)

“Walker: Independence” (9 p.m., The CW/Ch. 30) • This “Walker” prequel, set in the late 1800s, centers on Abby Walker (Katherine McNamara), who travels from Boston to Texas to start a new life. when her husband is murdered. It’s a ridiculous attempt to make a Western with modern sensibilities, and it fails in almost every way. (October 6)

“Alaska Daily” (9 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4): Hilary Swank stars as a high-powered New York investigative reporter who is fired from her job when she bases a report on documents that turn out to be fakes. . She lands in Alaska, works for a daily newspaper and does what she does best. There hasn’t been a successful show on a newspaper since “Lou Grant,” which ended 40 years ago – but this one might just work. That’s probably low praise, but it’s the best new show on the broadcast networks this fall. (October 6)

Friday

“Land of Fire” (8 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) • Seeking an early release from prison, a convict (Max Theriot) joins a firefighting team — but he never expected to be sent to his hometown in Northern California, where a soap opera ensues. There are things to like about it, but the mix just isn’t right, one way or another. Maybe they will understand. (October 7)

(Casey Durkin | NBC) Mayan Lopez as Mayan and George Lopez as George in “Lopez vs. Lopez.”

“Lopez vs. Lopez” (8 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): George Lopez and his real-life daughter, Mayan, star as a father and daughter who make TikTok videos and argue in this throwback sitcom (and not the common sense). At best, it’s mildly amusing. At worst, it’s just painful. (Nov 4)

Saturday

“Criss Angel: Magic with the Stars” (8 p.m., The CW/Ch. 30): Celebrities learn how to perform magic tricks and present them to the judges. Including Angel. It was not available for preview. (October 22)

VACATION, Utah – Dozens of people gathered Friday afternoon to put on red ribbons and show their support for a family after a 6-year-old boy died from injuries sustained when several cars were piled up on the Interstate 215.

On Thursday, Utah Highway Patrol officials said a car carrier collided with at least five other vehicles that were slowed or stopped in afternoon traffic on I-215 toward west near 500 East in Midvale.

According to family members on a GoFundMe* post, 6-year-old Edison Kimball died in the accident, while his mother and sisters were all injured.

“We wanted to flood the neighborhood with a sea of ​​red, it’s Eddie’s favorite color! said Beth Fielding, who helped mobilize other neighbors and friends to come to a church parking lot to help cut and tie red ribbons in memory of Edison and in support of the family boy. “They still have a very long way to go until they are home and begin their healing process.”

Several children from Eddie’s elementary school also helped do their part, including Tenley Wood.

“Most people were crying, some people were really sad,” Wood said of his classmates. “We’re really thinking about them right now!”

Organizers hoped to send a clear message to the Kimball family.

“There are so many people thinking of them, sending love, sending prayers,” Fielding said. “They’re just ready to help in any way they can.”

Do you remember spelling class in elementary school? It was a class you loved because you excelled or you hated it and dreaded the infamous Spelling Bee.

Spelling is now extremely easy and effortless between autocorrect and Google, our phones do it all for us. PS, this is not a good thing.

But no matter how we learn to spell, there will always be words we’ll have to turn to Google (does anyone have a physical dictionary anymore?) to help us out.

The experts at Unscrambled Words turned to some Google data and were able to determine the most misspelled word in each state and I’m starting to think we need to add more spelling lessons to our school curriculum.

But after reviewing the rest of the list, other states need more help than we do.

I understand states like Nevada that need help spelling the word “seizures” or Tennessee that can’t spell “pneumonia.” Utah is up there with “buttonhole” too. These are not easy to remember.

But let’s talk about Idaho and West Virginia. Their most misspelled words are their own states.

Apparently the people of Idaho can’t spell “Idaho”.

And in West Virginia, they google how to spell “West Virginia,” although I hope that’s the “Virginia” part they’re struggling with.

Now this is where we should be concerned. North Dakota has trouble saying “sorry” and Georgia can’t spell “little.”

So maybe New Jersey isn’t so bad after all – except the fact that it’s a number. Oh the irony.

The most misspelled word in New Jersey is “thousand”.

Disney+ does kids shows well with ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ https://lindonutah.org/disney-does-kids-shows-well-with-high-school-musical-the-musical-the-series/ Wed, 31 Aug 2022 23:51:26 +0000 https://lindonutah.org/disney-does-kids-shows-well-with-high-school-musical-the-musical-the-series/ Let’s remember 2019.

Let’s remember 2019. It was the last “good” year before COVID-19 where the “new normal” didn’t exist, just the “normal normal”. But, more relevant to our discussion, Olivia Rodrigo hadn’t blown up yet, and she was only known to a select group of people watching “Bizaardvark” on the Disney Channel. That all started to change in November 2019 when Disney+ released “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” which turned out to be a hit.

The series is set in Salt Lake City, Utah at East High – the same location where the original beloved “High School Musical” took place – and follows four main characters: talented singer Nini Salazar-Roberts (Olivia Rodrigo, “ Bizaardvark”), her aloof ex-boyfriend Ricky Bowen (Joshua Bassett, “Stuck in the Middle”), her more assembled current boyfriend EJ Caswell (Matt Cornett, “ZOMBIES”) and superstar, new girl on the campus, Gina Porter (Sofia Wylie, “Andi Mack”). True to the show’s name, East High’s drama department presents “High School Musical” in the first season. A key plot point of the series is the love triangle between Nini, Ricky, and EJ, which culminates in the first season finale when Nini and Ricky finally get back together. The second season was released on May 14, 2021, and follows East High Theater’s production of “Beauty and the Beast” (why they didn’t just do “High School Musical 2” is still a mystery to me). Probably due to her sudden rise to prominence after the release of “Driver’s License” in January 2021, Olivia Rodrigo’s character takes up a lot more space in the back and is sent to a posh acting school at the start of the season. Nini and Ricky break up again after realizing they may not be as compatible together as they once were, and Ricky enters a new love triangle with Gina and EJ, resulting in Gina and EJ date each other in the season two finale.

The third season starts us off at a summer camp where Gina, EJ, Ricky, and the rest of the East High Theater kids put on a production of “Frozen.” Rodrigo’s character has been sent to California at this point and is now just a recurring character on the show (who can blame him, really).

Surveillance video shows brash burglar breaking into store front and stealing high-end e-bikes https://lindonutah.org/surveillance-video-shows-brash-burglar-breaking-into-store-front-and-stealing-high-end-e-bikes/ Tue, 30 Aug 2022 00:06:35 +0000 https://lindonutah.org/surveillance-video-shows-brash-burglar-breaking-into-store-front-and-stealing-high-end-e-bikes/ SOUTH JORDAN, Utah – A bike shop in southern Jordan wants people on the alert for electric mountain bikes that were stolen early Saturday morning.

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah – A bike shop in southern Jordan wants people on the alert for electric mountain bikes that were stolen early Saturday morning.

These are not cheap bikes. The thief smashed a van through the glass doors and was gone within two minutes.

Plywood now covers the glass entrance where the thief entered Hangar 15 Bicycles on Redwood Road at 3.15am on Saturday morning. The operations manager estimated that the break-in caused $50,000 in damage to the building and another $50,000 in stolen bikes.

“He just drove it clean through the front of the building through two of our sliding glass doors,” said Kenny Charles, operations manager for Hangar 15 Bicycles.

Surveillance video showed the thief entering the store’s parking lot, slowly taking a loop, then lining up with the door about 30 feet from the glass doors and stopping. He got out of the truck, approached to take a look around the store, then returned to the truck and sped into the building. He crashed in the showroom in a black Ford F250 or F350 truck.

“It actually seems quite surprising that he had a dog in the car with him,” Charles said. “It was a guy who had just thrown e-bikes in the back of a truck. They’re not exactly light, and he was just throwing them in the back of this van. So I’m sure they were quite damaged.

He stole five electric mountain bikes: Specialized Levos ranging in price from $6,000 to $15,000.

“It rides a bit like a regular bicycle,” the manager said. “It’s really intuitive to drive. It will be very sweet. That’s why it’s a popular and highly sought-after bike.

According to the surveillance video timeline, the burglar entered and exited the store within two minutes.

“The guy, on his way out, knocked over a bunch of bikes. There was glass and stuff everywhere,” Charles said.

A dozen bicycles are seriously damaged. The store manager thinks it’s probably a stolen truck, and the police say it’s likely.

“Bikes are only getting more expensive,” Charles said. “Unfortunately, they are quite easy to physically steal. So I think that’s why people are drawn to them.

Call the South Jordan Police if you know anything about this burglary or recognize anything about the suspect.

Injunction Shows NLRB Fed Up With Starbucks Labor Violation – People’s World https://lindonutah.org/injunction-shows-nlrb-fed-up-with-starbucks-labor-violation-peoples-world/ Tue, 23 Aug 2022 15:04:35 +0000 https://lindonutah.org/injunction-shows-nlrb-fed-up-with-starbucks-labor-violation-peoples-world/ A customer makes a purchase at a Starbucks coffee shop. | Matt Rourke/AP MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A federal judge’s injunction against Starbucks, ordering bosses to rehire seven workers illegally fired for organizing the coffee chain’s store in Memphis, Tenn., is an indication that the National Labor Relations Board has more more fed up with the […]]]>

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A federal judge’s injunction against Starbucks, ordering bosses to rehire seven workers illegally fired for organizing the coffee chain’s store in Memphis, Tenn., is an indication that the National Labor Relations Board has more more fed up with the company. constant and brutal violation of labor laws.

In fact, the board is so infuriated that Buffalo regional manager Linda Leslie filed a petition earlier this year in federal court for a nationwide 10(d) injunction — her toughest penalty — against the practices of endemic unfair labor of the chain of monsters, the official name of the violation of labor law. Leslie said her traditional remedies against corporate wrongdoers could not undo the damage.

Starbucks’ violation of the law does not prevent Workers United from winning, store by store, either. He is running, on behalf of local workers, for 360 union recognition elections nationwide and unionists have won 211 so far, including five of six in Tennessee. The defeat was an 8-8 draw at Smyrna. The wins included Memphis, 11-3, among 20 workers.

The win came after Starbucks tried to intimidate its baristas into voting “no,” firing all seven. Workers didn’t back down, nor did NLRB general counsel Jennifer Abruzzo. Chief Counsel and Operations Manager.

On August 18, Abruzzo won a 10(j) injunction against Starbucks from U.S. District Judge Sheryl Lipman in Memphis. She ordered Starbucks to take the workers back and uphold labor law by recognizing and negotiating with the union.

“This is a critical step to ensure that these workers, and all Starbucks workers, can freely exercise their right to join together to improve their working conditions and form a union,” Abruzzo said. “Starbucks and other employers should note that the NLRB will continue to vigorously protect the right of workers to organize without interference from their employer.”

Starbucks workers, engaged in a coast-to-coast organizing campaign with the help of Workers United, a sector of service workers, are part of the mass movement of exploited workers on low pay and without benefits who have so far and will no longer take it.

These workers, many of whom are in their 20s and 30s, like Starbucks baristas—turning to multiple avenues of resistance against Starbucks and other greedy giant corporations, while demanding better wages and protections, worker rights and respect in the workplace.

One is unionization, usually on its own with the subsequent help of established unions. A second is the walkouts. When Starbucks in early August suddenly fired the lead organizer of its first store for unionizing, in Buffalo, the entire store left. The dismissal and walkout came after Leslie filed for a nationwide injunction.

And a third is to seek and obtain better jobs, leaving low-wage employers in the lurch.

They also have the backing of one of the nation’s oldest and strongest working class political supporters, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Ind.-Vt. On August 20, he walked a picket line in Philadelphia and the next day, watched by cameras and reporters, he waved to a large crowd of Massachusetts Starbucks United members picketing a store in Boston. The video is on the SWBUnited Twitter feed.

“After learning of the organizing effort, Starbucks directed a wide variety of enforcement actions against its employees,” the NLRB said in its injunction request to Lipman, which it only uses when remedies are sought. more traditional and weak labor laws do not empower all workers and do not deter companies that break the law. These penalties reinstate terminated workers with clear back wages and display a “we broke the law and promised not to do this again” notice.

In Memphis, Starbucks disciplined the worker who started the organizing drive, instituted tight surveillance of 20 workers, closed the Memphis Starbucks on days when organizers called on the public to show support, and illegally removed pro material -union of the bulletin board of the store.

When all these movements caught the attention of the media, from local television stations to New York Times and the Washington Post, Starbucks fired all seven workers on the same day, including five of the six members of the Memphis organizing committee. It was obvious retaliation, which is also illegal.

Judge Lipman’s 10(j) ruling in Memphis isn’t the NLRB’s only legal decision against the coffeehouse chain, whose CEO Howard Schultz has repeatedly sworn his stores would never unionize.

In its national 10(j) petition, Buffalo Regional Manager Leslie said Starbucks violated labor laws more than 200 times at its Buffalo-area stores and multiple times at a store in Rochester, NY. His breaches of the law included illegally soliciting grievances and promising benefits if workers voted against the union, promising a pay rise if they did, promising – in at least one store – better health benefits mental and promising extensive store renovations at several Starbucks. .

But he also engaged in close surveillance of workers, illegally spied on union activities, illegally interrogated workers who handed out and wore Workers United pins, and closed at least one Buffalo store and another’s coffee shop. And in at least one Buffalo store, a manager threatened workers that they wouldn’t get a raise if they voted for the union.

And on August 16, NLRB regional manager Reginald Hooks in Seattle, Starbucks headquarters, filed a lawsuit against 10 stores against the company for multiple labor law violations in Seattle, Everett and Bellingham. , Washington, and in Portland and Eugene, Ore.

The violation of the law in the “Hi Partner” letters to all workers contained various threats. One was a freeze on wages and benefits until a contract is ratified, along with a warning that “negotiations can often take over a year – if a contract is reached.” And “to maintain a direct relationship with” Starbucks, workers must vote against unionization — a veiled threat to fire those who vote for the union.

Hooks’ remedy is to distribute the no-repetition notice via text, social media and email to all workers employed since April 1, not just post it on store bulletin boards. Hooks also wants mandatory training for Starbucks managers on labor law compliance. He has scheduled a hearing on the case for November 8, election day. It won’t be a problem for workers, Washington and Oregon vote entirely by mail.

Hooks’ complaint is notable for other reasons. It was filed in Starbucks territory, it included five Seattle Starbucks, and it included Schultz’s contact information as a defendant, hschultz@starbucks.com, and his office address, 2401 Utah Ave. South Suite 800, Seattle, Washington, 98134-1436. This is information consumers can use to protest Starbucks.

(NEXSTAR) – If you’ve ever wondered where all that water came from before it hit your local river or stream, the US Geological Survey’s interactive Streamer tool helps you visualize it.

Search for your city and you can see streams, rivers and lakes near you. With one click, you can “draw upstream” to see all the waterways that feed up to that point, or “draw downstream” to see where the water is heading.

The interactive Streamer map lets you click on a point to see which rivers and streams feed into it and where the water moves past it. (USGS)

For those dealing with widespread flooding in the southern United States, for example, real-time conditions might be more helpful.

The USGS National Water Dashboard shows where there is current flooding or record water flow. On Monday, the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which faced extreme flooding after weekend monsoon rains, had numerous streamgages reporting flooding and record water flow.

Black spots, representing all-time record flow conditions on Monday, are concentrated near the Dallas-Fort Worth area after severe storms left parts of the southwestern United States underwater. (USGS)

A powerful storm system caused widespread flooding in a number of states over the weekend, leaving neighborhoods under water and causing flash floods that put visitors to the national park at risk.

The flood submerged the banks of rivers and streams in Utah, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico.

Although much of the region remains in a decades-long drought, climate change has made weather patterns more variable and left soils drier and less absorbent, creating conditions more prone to flooding and monsoons.

Flooding swept through parts of southern Utah in and around Moab and Zion throughout the summer, causing streams of water to tumble from the region’s red rock cliffs and spill from the sides of the banks .

An Arizona woman was still missing on Monday after being swept away in Zion National Park, Utah three days earlier as floods swept through the southwestern United States and endangered tourists visiting the scenic parks in the area.

In Balch Springs, a Dallas suburb where a grass fire that broke out in an open, dry field last month damaged more than two dozen homes, authorities rescued people from flooded homes on Monday.

“The water has nowhere to go and the creeks are starting to overflow. We’re putting them in place until we can get to them by boat,” said fire chief Eric Neal, who didn’t yet counted the number of rescues made.

Heavy rains and flooding across the southern United States are expected to continue Tuesday and possibly Wednesday as the storm system heads into the lower Mississippi Valley and south, according to the National Weather Service.

The Detroit Pistons can’t be buried early by a tough schedule as things get better as the NBA season progresses. A recent chart from an NBA analyst shows just how tough the road will be.

Pistons fans remember the start of last season well, when it seemed like all Detroit was playing was NBA Finals contenders. It seemed like other record-breaking teams didn’t exist, as they faced a steady diet of Chicago (before injuries), Atlanta (before things got bad), Brooklyn (with Durant and Harden ), Milwaukee and the 76ers to start the season. .

With Cade Cunningham still scraping the rust off after spending the entire preseason with a sprained ankle, the Pistons just weren’t ready for this level of competition.

Detroit started with a 1-8 record and then the injuries started piling up, which made matters worse as the schedule continued to be relentless.

After a depressing 94-85 extra loss to the New York Knicks on Dec. 29 (Alec Burks with 34 points led a Knicks rally), the Pistons’ record was just 5-28. Detroit’s hopes of making a run at the Play-in tournament had initially been dim, but being buried so deep, so early in the season, was a major inconvenience for fans.

By then, with four months left in the season, Pistons fans had to start hunting losses again for more NBA lottery ping pong balls (even though that strategy, except once, didn’t work). never either).

With the publication of the 2022-23 NBA schedule, Detroit is, on the contrary, even younger and less experienced than last year. Of their 16 currently registered players, 12 are 24 or younger. As of now, everyone is healthy, which is different from where the team ended up last year (remember those games with Trey Lyles at center?).

An easy schedule at the start, while the team is working out, would have been helpful, but it’s not happening.

It’s not last season’s meat grinder, not going up against an MVP contender every night, but it’s sure to be the hardest part of the schedule.

Ed Kupfer, who served as an analyst with the Houston Rockets, charted the toughest schedule strength for all NBA teams by time of year.

The first reaction is that the season is getting easier for Detroit as it goes (and they have nothing like the hellish landscape the 76ers have to finish the season. Yikes!)

Kupfer divided the season into four parts: Beginning to Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving to New Years, New Years to All-Star Break, and All-Star Break to Season End.

As each segment of the season runs its course, the Pistons schedule gets easier. After the All-Star break, Detroit will actually be favored for having a winning record in this segment.

How tough is the Detroit Pistons’ first road?

While there are still games with the Warriors, Lakers, Hawks, Celtics, Clippers and Nuggets that will be extremely, there are also some win possibilities.

We can’t call them gimmees or easy wins. When you’re talking about a team that went 23-59, those aren’t easy wins, but some matchups should be a “W” if Detroit plays well.

Indiana, Oklahoma City, Utah, Sacramento, Washington and the opener with Orlando are definitely games the Pistons could win. If the Pistons do indeed win the winnable games and pull off a few upsets, they could survive the tough pre-Thanksgiving stretch.

As bad as last season was, the Pistons still had wins over Milwaukee, Miami, Boston and Toronto, so hopefully Detroit can pull off some early upsets.

If Detroit can have a record of, say, 8-12 by Thanksgiving, that would be a very positive sign. As highlighted in previous stories, most back-to-back Pistons are complete by January 1.

Part of the reason the end of the schedule might be easier is that the NBA doesn’t want teams that might be more interested in ping pong balls than wins in March and April involved in crucial games involving playoff standings. So we know where the NBA still considers Detroit (see also by their lack of national television coverage).

But everyone plays 82 games, and the Pistons don’t have to settle for anyone else’s expectations.

With a young team and a volatile game situation (who knows what roster the Pistons will settle on?), it would be nice if Detroit had a lineup of cupcakes to start the year, but that’s not the reality.

When is it a fact, and Kupfer’s chart shows it, is that things get easier as the season progresses. Detroit fans should therefore keep this in mind if the team is off to a slow start. It will get better.

Kupfer has lots of other interesting graphs on his Twitter account that you can check out if you’re really into calendar statistics. here it has Detroit with the eighth toughest schedule.
