Morning Links for July 7, 2014
Four Brewers are All-Stars, a UWM astronomer makes a discovery, and everybody loves Seinfeld.
Some morning reading to ease you back into the week.
- Major League Baseball selected its All-Star team on Sunday night, and the Brewers will send four players to the midsummer classic. Third baseman Aramis Ramirez and center fielder Carlos Gomez were both voted in as starters, catcher Jonathan Lucroy and closer Francisco Rodriguez were selected to the National League roster as reserves. Adam McCalvy has reaction from the team at Brewers.com.
- University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee astronomer David Kaplan reported the discovery of a white dwarf. At less than 3,000 degrees Celsius, it may be the coldest white dwarf ever discovered. The JSOnline.com headline for the story is “UWM astronomer's discovery: Like a diamond in the sky” and now I can’t get that Rihanna song out of my head.
- 20 of 30 days in the month of June saw rain in Milwaukee, reports WISN.
- Seinfeld debuted 25 years ago this weekend, and the entire internet covered the anniversary.
- There’s now a chance LeBron James goes back to Cleveland. Last night, ESPN’s Chris Broussard tweeted “Cleveland has replaced Miami as my frontrunner to land LeBron James.” I wonder if this will get any media attention.
