NBA Power Rankings: Where Do Teams Stack Up After 2014 Draft?
The 2014 NBA draft itself wasn't as eventful as anticipated. The craziness of 2013 gave way to relative calm this year, despite the depth of talent available and the long line of pick-deprived teams looking to score some of it. But the theater of draft ...

Rachel's festive special: Candied chocolate orange and grapefruit crisps
My take on French 'orangettes', these citrus fruit crisps make excellent gifts or edible garnishes for the Christmas tree, and if you like can be used for a wreath. Adapt these basic quantities to make as many as you need 1 organic or non-waxed firm ...

The craziness of 2013 gave way to relative calm this year, despite the depth of talent available and the long line of pick-deprived teams looking to score some of it. But the theater of draft day will soon give way to matters of actual basketball. Nobody knows precisely which players will pan out or send the men who picked them packing—and to what extent—and we won't have a clear picture for some time. All 60 picks have been made, but many more could move from July on. More importantly, with players like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love all on the market in some respect, the league's landscape will shift much more on the movements of... Here, then, are my 30 "guesses" for how teams stack up right now, based on a combination of how every squad fared last season, what they did on draft night and what's (potentially) to come this summer. General manager Sam Hinkie used his lottery picks to add players who (probably) won't be contributing to the team in any meaningful way next season. Philly then used the No. 10 pick (Elfrid Payton) to recapture its 2017 first-rounder from the Orlando Magic and add Dario Saric, a precocious Croatian, to its stash of young talent. Except Saric won't be seen stateside for at least another two seasons after signing a new three-year deal (third-year player option) to play in Turkey.
Princess Margaret, the Queen’s younger sister, and her handsome husband Lord Snowdon had recently become parents to a baby son, and had grand designs for their new residence. Like our current charismatic young royal couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their new address was Apartment No 1A, Kensington Palace. Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones married in May 1960 and, like William and Kate, first moved into a small property in the palace, Apartment 10. This was always intended to be no more than a stopgap, and when, a year later, the princess... No 1A is effectively a spacious four-storey house, which forms half of the Clock Tower wing, designed by Sir Christopher Wren for King William and Queen Mary in the 17th century. As later kings and queens preferred to live elsewhere, the palace was gradually subdivided into accommodation for minor royals (Edward VIII once referred to it as the ‘aunt heap’) and each partition became a numbered apartment. Until her death in 1939, No 1A had been occupied first by Queen Victoria’s daughter Princess Louise, then by Victoria’s grandson, the Marquess of Carisbrooke, but by the time it was offered to Princess Margaret, it.
I expect some of you already have your tree up and your brussels on. But this year will have a different hue: this, my friends, is set to be our first ‘mobile Christmas’. Nearly a quarter of all online sales came from mobile devices this summer, and the trend only looks set to grow as we take to purchasing everything on the go, on our ‘phablets’ (awful word) and Tesco Hudls (worse), in the bath, in the queue for... It’s gloriously convenient, of course, but for all its ease and speed, there are pitfalls aplenty when mobile shopping. ● Your hands are never full when shopping online. One of the benefits of real-time shopping is that you tend to give up when your arms start to ache. when you gravitate naturally towards the nearest coffee and bun. Online, you gravitate naturally towards massive overspend and the bitter taste of regret. ● It’s a solitary occupation, online shopping, unlike proper shopping, which you might do with your mum or your best friend Sally. There’s no one there to say, ‘Gosh, that skirt makes your knees look like chelsea buns. ● It’s entirely possible to walk into a lamppost while shopping for an Isabel Marant jacket on your mobile. Mobile phone injuries have apparently.
