    The Panthers dominated on the inside, out-rebounding the Raiders 33-21 and shooting 43 percent from two-point range, while the Raiders drained 12 threes from the outside. But it was Carroll’s pressure defense that gave them a plus 11-turnover margin and secured them a 67-56 home win.

  • Who is flying the plane?

    I flew a plane last week, Delta flight 837.

    Well, maybe not “flew” it, but I definitely helped.
    My daughter moved to Hawaii last week and flew from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine hour, 14 minute flight that I tracked on my computer.

    For nine hours and 14 minutes I watched an airplane icon inch its way across the continent and then over the Pacific Ocean.

    At one point, about an hour off the California coast, the plane on my computer screen faced east instead of west.
